Dino: APC Treasurer Condemns Inclusion Of Late Governorship Aspirant’s Signature In Recall Register

The Kogi State Treasurer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Ade Ismail has condemned the inclusion of Late Rotimi Obadofin’s signature in the register purportedly collated for recalling Senator Dino Melaye.

This condemnation is on the heels of growing allegations of forgery and outright fraud in the collation of voters’ signatures for the recall.

Late Obadofin was a governorship aspirant in the 2015 APC primaries that produced Late Abubakar Audu as the party’s flag-bearer.

“When I was told, I said it can’t be possible, until I saw it myself. Late Prince Rotimi Obadofin NEVER participated and supported fraud during his life time, why will anybody put his name among the recallers?

“Those who included his name in the mess and their supporters will forever know no peace in their lives and the lives of their children.  They will live to regret their fraudulent actions. They will die young and the mercy of the Almighty has ceased in their lives. Inamal hamru Isha irada sehan Ayakula Lahu qunfayakun.

“This is the same man whose noble agenda for the state was never supported by these bastards. They talked hypocritically about him and used his political assets to promote another person.

“I will personally pick this up. Whoever handled this fraud in my ward will pay dearly for this”, he said.

  1. I am not sure the place you are getting your information, but great topic.
    I needs to spend some time finding out more
    or understanding more. Thank you for great information I used to be in search of this info for my mission.

  2. What’s eager to me is politics of Anambra State.

    I’m versatile, I’m calm, I’m relaxed, I’m simply doing it as if I’m like someone attempting to do his enterprise.
    I don’t comply with protocol, I don’t observe fashion.

    I’m doing it in my very own type and I’m as a man that tomorrow, no matter the end result is, I can all
    the time go residence and sit. If I win the election I’ll nonetheless go and take a relaxation and say God thank.
    If I don’t win I’ll additionally return dwelling.

    I’m profitable as a result of I’m the very best candidate.
    I’m profitable as a result of I’ve the answer to the issues of Anambra individuals.
    Whoever in Anambra politics that feels that he is healthier than me
    I problem him with 5 million naira to return for a debate.

    If anyone in Anambra be it Ngige, be It whoever and
    thinks he is healthier than me, he ought to come.
    As a result of first it’s a problem, if anyone is
    healthier than me in any line, he ought to come and problem me
    for a public debate earlier than our debate.

    What provides you the assurance?
    I got here from a poor background, very humble background.
    I do know the society. I’ve felt what individuals there are feeling.

    In Lagos, this my avenue received the very best avenue in Lagos in 2011 by Lagos State authorities.
    There’s mild, avenue mild from avenue finish to road finish,
    there may be coated drainage avenue finish to avenue finish,
    that is what I did in Lagos.

    So Ifeanyi’s life model with the lots will not be one thing I designed right this moment.

    I’ve taken kerosene to each nook to contact the lives of the lots.
    So I do know what individuals in Kano how they’re feeling, the poor lots in Kano,
    the poor lots in Bauchi each a part of this nation.

    Proud Anambrarian

    Now coming to my state, I’m with them and I’m a really proud Anambarian. So what drives me into this politics is that the politicians haven’t been honest to
    Anambarians and the sacrifice I’m giving in the present day no one can afford to present it.

    No one will likely be at the highest of his enterprise after which they are
    saying come and run the corporate and say I don’t need to run I would
    like to enter politics. It isn’t that Anambra State has extra money than what I get
    from my firm, however I would like someone to handle it as we
    speak let me go and see how I can repair Anambra, at the very least you must respect it from this

    I wish to let you know about different politicians which might be contesting.
    Some don’t have any enterprise with the plenty, some have
    by no means been within the state, some had been pressured, some don’t even know the identify of their deputy governor (working mate),
    you already know it’s a giant crime for
    any person to be in a debate and he won’t remember the identify of his
    deputy governor.

    It occurred in America, the candidate they need to power on Anambra folks couldn’t remember the identify of his deputy governor (working mate).
    He was confused, that’s the reality.

    It took him two minutes to recollect the deputy governor’s (working
    mate’s) identify. Is that the sort of particular person we would like in Anambra State?

    Someone who doesn’t perceive how to repair Anambra that’s the reason I stated anyone that feels he’s higher than me ought to come for a debate
    and take 5 million if he wins me.

    However he has intimidating credentials?

    Credential just isn’t all about practicality. Invoice Gate
    as soon as mentioned it, it’s not all about credentials, it’s all about being road smart, understanding the issue of your folks.

    Invoice Gate stated it, Aliko Dangote too mentioned it.
    The answer is getting the outcome. It’s not about credentials.
    Credentials haven’t helped Anambra folks, and I’m not additionally saying that credentials will not
    be good, however we mustn’t lay emphasis on credentials as a result of with credentials with out understanding the issue of the individuals it’s equal to zero.

    How are you going to generate employment?
    If I’m taking a look at individuals, I can create fifty thousand
    employment in six months.
    I’m addicted to using individuals, so I’ve that addiction to using folks.

    How will you do it?
    I’m a cash magician. I don’t wish to say it now until we get to the controversy desk.

    However individuals will increase points regarding your organization and
    AMCON. Your organization was taken away from you by AMCON.
    How will you react to that?

    In the event that they don’t elevate it, I’ll elevate it.
    In America no one requested me (about) AMCON, I raised it.

    I mentioned I used to be anticipating you folks to ask me and by the point I
    completed no one even challenged or mentioned something.

    However how do you reply to the truth that your organization was taken over by

    Have you ever ever seen an organization that’s bankrupt and someone will go and increase the corporate up?

    No. In case you are quarter to die and someone will come
    and say there’s life for you. Capital oil and fuel will not be bankrupt.

  3. Son of the late Head of State Normal Sani Abacha,
    Mohammed and a identified affiliate of former President Olusegun Obasanjo,
    Otunba Oyewole Fasawe, have gone earlier than the Federal Excessive Court docket

    The overseas companies – Shell Nigeria Exploration and Manufacturing Firm Ltd

    Final Friday, a Federal Excessive Courtroom in Abuja vacated order of non permanent forfeiture on the OPL 245, earlier granted in favour of the Financial and Monetary Crimes
    Fee (EFCC) on January 26, 2017.

    Mohammed and Fasawe, in a swimsuit, which they instituted final Friday within the identify of Malabu Oil and
    Fuel Ltd, additionally need the courtroom to, amongst others,
    difficulty an order perpetually restraining all defendants within the go well
    with and their brokers “from finishing up any exploration or prospecting actions in reference to or in relation to the world lined by OPL 245.”

    Mohammed mentioned he owns 50 per cent shares in Malabu Oil, and
    Fasawe is representing a agency, Pecos Vitality Ltd, stated to personal 20 per cent
    share in Malabu Oil. Named as defendants, within the swimsuit
    instituted through writ of summons, are Federal Authorities of Nigeria, Minister
    of Petroleum Assets, Shell Nigeria Extremely-Deep Ltd, SNEPCO, NAECO,
    EFCC and Etete.

    They contend, by the plaintiff, that the
    declare of SNEPCO and NAECO to OPL 245 is predicated on an alleged unlawful settlement between the Federal Authorities of Nigeria and Minister of Petroleum Sources and SNEPCO and
    NAECO however on April 29, 2011.

    The plaintiff said that the purported settlement was executed with out the consent and data of its (Malabu Oil’s) main traders – Mohammed and Pecos Ltd.
    It faulted former Petroleum Minister Dan Etete’s declare
    to being a director in Malabu Oil, with 30 per
    cent shareholding.

    Mohammed, in his witness assertion, chronicled how, regardless
    of Malabu Oil’s subsiding curiosity in OPL 245, the licence was
    allegedly handed to SNEPCO and NAECO by the FGN beneath an association which had the overseas oil corporations
    paid $1.Three billion, with out the involvement of the unique buyers of Malabu Oil.

    He stated on the incorporation of Malabu Oil in 1998, it had
    a complete share capital of 20 million odd shares, with him (Mohammed)
    holding 10 million, Amafagha Kweku (holding six million) and Hindu Hassan (holding
    4 million).

    He mentioned Malabu Oil’s share construction has remained unaltered,
    besides with the switch of Hindu Hassan’s 4 million shares to Pecos Power.

    Mohammed stated, though OPL 245 was duly awarded to Malabu Oil in 2008 after its cost of the mandatory
    charges, the allocation was revoked by the Federal Authorities in 2001, however was reallocated
    to Malabu Oil in 2010 by an out- of-courtroom
    settlement settlement.

    He added: “While the allocation to the plaintiff of OPL 245 was subsisting, the first, third, 4th, fifth defendants – FGN, Shell Extremely-Deep, SNEPCO, NAECO – and the Nigerian Nationwide Petroleum Company (NNPC) entered into what they referred to as ‘Block 245 Decision Agreement’ dated April 29, 2011.”

    Mohammed added that a part of the phrases of the April 29,
    2011 settlement was that the FGN “shall allocate OPL 245 to the 4th and fifth defendants (SNEPCO and NAECO) with out the data or consent of the plaintiff.

    “In spite of the acknowledgement of the subsisting rights
    and curiosity of the plaintiff in OPL 245, the plaintiff was not a celebration to, however was intentionally and
    purposefully excluded from the Block 245 decision settlement of twenty ninth April 2011 to
    allow the events agree amongst themselves
    to allocate OPL 245 to the 4th and fifth defendants,” he mentioned.

    Mohammed said that according to the April 29, 2011 settlement, SNEPCO and NAECO allegedly agreed to pay $1.Three billion to Etete “purportedly within the identify of the plaintiff,
    however by the first defendant appearing as a facilitator.

    “Sometimes in Might 2011, the 4th and fifth defendants paid the sum of $801,540,000 into the first defendant’s escrow account with J. P. Morgan Chase Financial institution,” he stated.

  4. Nice post. I learn some thing hard on distinct blogs daily.
    It will always be stimulating to read content of fantastic writers like you.
    I’d choose to use some content in my small weblog in case
    you do not mind. Of course I’ll provide a link on your own internet weblog.

    Thank you for sharing.

  5. Hello, i think that i saw you visited my blog so i came to “return the favor”.I am attempting to find things to improve my web site!I suppose its ok to
    use some of your ideas!!

  6. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
    as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know
    what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  7. The primary Literary Crossroads in 2017 featured Indra Wussow,
    who’s the editor of aE AfrikAWunderhornaE and a collection of African fictions
    printed in German publishing home, Wunderhornae. She is
    the founding father of Sylt Basis primarily based in Johannesburg, South Africa and in addition a
    literary translator and journalist. She spoke in regards to
    the reception of African literature within the German-talking world – Germany,
    Switzerland and Austria. She was a visitor of German Cultural
    Centre, Goethe Institut, Lagos, which had Dare Dan moderating

    That is the fourth version of the Literary Crossroad, and we’re dwelling on the subject: Reception of African literature within the German-talking
    world – Germany, Switzerland and Austria – we’re very a lot happy to have you ever, Indra.
    We’ve a author who simply got here out of your
    Sylt Basis, Oris Airigbokhaevbol
    Oris was truly in Sylt for 3 months. Humorous sufficient
    really as a result of it was October, November, and December.

    It’s chilly; it’s not a pleasant place in these months and I
    used to be like ‘are you positive you need to remain three
    months there?’ He mentioned ‘yes, sure, sure!’ And I’ve by no means met him as a result of
    I stay in Johannesburg. So, I wasn’t there however apparently he had a
    fabulous time and he wrote loads and, after all, German winter may very well be good, too.

    How a few years have you ever been involved with African literature,
    significantly once you look on the array of actions,
    tasks, locations and people who you’ve met, and made contact with within the lengthy years of your engagement?

    I feel 15 years already, which is rather a lot, and, in fact, it’s a journey of
    studying and rising as a result of we began really with South African literature and we
    had all our residencies noticed in Germany. Out of this got here lots of different actions.
    In 2008, we began the sequence of African writing.

    We printed three books, which makes us distinctive within the
    literary panorama. There are plenty of translations and
    loads of African books printed in Switzerland, and Austria however it’s with completely different publishers however we’re
    the one one which has a collection of fiction that depicts
    Africa as ‘a continent, not a rustic.’

    How did it begin for you? Was it unintended or have you ever all the time had it deliberate from
    the very starting that you simply have been going to take this position?
    Really, I began with comparative literature and, in fact, I used to
    be all the time desirous about discussing the completely different literary concepts and traditions
    in several nations, in negotiating the totally different literary cultures
    and traditions in several nations, at totally different instances, to grasp how we understand our world by
    way of literature. The opposite factor comes out of truly being politically fascinating.
    I met all these those that fought in opposition to Apartheid when I
    used to be very younger. When I used to be 12,
    one in all my heroines was Winnie Mandela; she sat there whereas her husband was in prison and she was
    in exile in her personal home and nation. Individuals attempt, writers strive to beat
    situations they dwell in and out of this got here increasingly more information and extra engagement.

    If you publish books in Europe, I assume that you purchase the rights from,
    perhaps publishers. Is that the case?
    You understand, there are literary brokers, who’re
    African publishers as nicely. We select books; attempt to get the
    rights. That’s an fascinating level as effectively as a result of African literature is kind of inflectional.
    You don’t get all of the rights that you really want, which was totally different in 2009.

    For instance, Fiston Mwanza Mujila’s guide, Tram 83, was really
    one among my writers and residents on Sylt and
    he cherished to be revealed with us however then there got here a giant writer who supplied
    him such a beautiful huge sum of cash and, in fact, he felt
    dangerous, and that i stated, ‘no Fiston, it’s high
    quality you’ve got to do that as a result of it’s a giant probability for you as a result of we’re nonetheless a small writer.’

    I’m simply taken with how a lot you have interaction publishers
    which are primarily based on the continent and the way fascinated you’re in publishing books which
    can be being printed by African publishers versus books which might be revealed within the west however
    authored by Africans?
    I imply, that’s a really troublesome level, and crucial as a result
    of clearly, normally these writers, who’re printed by worldwide publishers are extra on the radar than others.

    And since I do reside in South Africa, and I’ve some entry
    to native publishers, it is less complicated for me to seek out others, however but these others don’t promote.
    Lola Shoneyin (writer of The key Lives of baba Segi’s Wives and organiser of Abeokuta-primarily based Ake Artwork
    and E-book Festival) is a superb instance. She is an incredible editor and had a variety of success,
    not solely as a result of it was an attention-grabbing e book,
    however as a result of there was additionally good advertising
    and marketing that might have been concerned. Who she is, what she does is essential, too,
    and likewise for a author, who’s pondering, ‘oh effectively, I’m revealed in Germany and
    then you definately don’t promote;’ you already know, it’s unhappy, too.

    Having a e-book on the market doesn’t imply cash success.
    For instance, in our Wunderhornae collection, our most offered e book is definitely Helon Habila’s
    Oil on Water, and it truly occurred, however Helon was furious
    as a result of it was perceived as a criminal offense story and since individuals thought ‘oh wow, it’s a criminal offense
    story, a white girl being kidnapped; how cool that is!

    That is how we predict Africa is.’ So,
    it is definitely enjoying on fallacious notion. Then Helon tried
    so exhausting to clarify that it’s rather more. It’s the
    approaching of age of a younger journalist in a really tough nation. However you realize, it all the time got
    here as much as ‘a white lady being kidnapped.’

    Additionally, once you promote or should you edit one thing abroad,
    you must do it, after all, with the notion of the ‘other’ and attempt to negotiate the house and put in a little bit bit extra to get them engaged within the continent in a extra numerous approach.
    I imply, we did Shimmer Chinodya’s Strife; it was an extremely necessary novel
    as he talks about how African cosmology is handled in Robert Mugabe’s dictatorship in Zimbabwe and what it means on this altering occasions.
    I can inform you overtly (that) we bought over four hundred books
    of these as a result of that is one thing a
    German reader would need to know. We tried actually exhausting, and it’s all the time good
    to have interaction in one thing new and nonetheless get folks to purchase issues
    which can be laborious to get.

    In these 15 years, what has been probably the most fascinating venture you will have embarked on and
    why is it attention-grabbing for you?
    I imply, all we do is: we go in to begin someplace, be taught and begin new issues that we couldn’t
    have achieved initially. For instance, as a curator and as a Sylt founder, we began to do very attention-grabbing tasks in seven completely different international locations, the place we deal with transformation and
    id, trauma and reconciliation and we strive to determine how completely different international
    locations reply to social modifications and the way they negotiate their house and their work.
    These Nations are Cambodia, Myanmar, South Africa, Chile, Cuba and Haiti.
    These are nations most individuals don’t learn about and the writers additionally want numerous assist and they’ve
    so many necessary tales to inform. It can be
    great for Nigeria to be a part of this too.
    You mentioned the African story is in vogue proper now. The impression we’ve
    right here on the continent is that if we instructed our personal tales
    they might have a greater reception within the West, however you simply talked about that Helon Habila’s story, though
    it’s not a criminal offense-primarily based story, it was obtained as a criminal
    offense novel.

    How has the reception been for African literature within the
    west? Is it actually the time for Africa? Is Africa writing actually the longer term?

    I imply, there’s kind of a growth. Nearly each writer has an African author in his or
    her programme, however you’ll be able to already see that it’s shifting again to one thing else as a result
    of we have now the refugee disaster. Individuals are attempting to elucidate what is
    occurring within the Center East. So, all these Center East writers
    are in focus and also you marvel, or does it make one other
    flip in telling refugees tales once more? And that i don’t
    hope so; I imply, it’s a part of it, however it’s not the
    African story that many individuals consider. Whenever you now go
    to Europe, there’s a horrible false impression of the African world and each time I say I stay in South Africa, then they are saying the individuals reside within the third world and all of the folks want to go to Europe.

    Everybody desires to avoid wasting cash to go to Libya after which
    sail to Europe. We strive so onerous to vary this
    however the readers that have an interest within the
    change of notion are laborious to seek out. You mustn’t neglect additionally, in a spot like Germany, now
    we have heaps and plenty of bookshops. For massive writer, the books are on a
    desk; our books are within the shelves. So clearly, you must
    search for these books; you’d have to search out different methods with e-books, the
    Web, to make use of. And this can be one thing one has to discover to simply discover writers
    and supply them a guide. It isn’t a blessing in case you don’t promote; it’s a really
    unhappy factor, and so the concept to be on the market in Europe with
    a e-book doesn’t imply that it’ll achieve success. I’ve 5
    colleagues that began first with editions and so
    they not publish them as a result of they don’t promote.
    So, it’s a tough factor. I imply, all of us work collectively.
    You want journalists; you want a society that’s excited by these matters, heaps of individuals
    working collectively to make it work.

    9:48am On Jun 09, 2016Recently we heard that a minister in Nigeria
    Chris Ngige threatened to revoke the licenses of banks that resolve to sack their employees.
    Once i heard it, what went by my thoughts was like “This individuals don dey craze again”.

    This assertion was not solely an embarrassment to Chris Ngige himself
    however to the one which appointed him as a minister of
    Labour. I’m not saying Ngige doesn’t should be a minister however from his cv it’s apparent he was given the incorrect portfolio.
    He’s a physician, no enterprise acumen in anyway.

    Enterprise organizations usually are not charity organizations.
    The only real purpose of any enterprise enterprise shouldn’t be
    solely to make revenue, but additionally to maximise
    it. Job cuts are inevitable particularly when the organizations are making
    earnings beneath its goal. Job cuts are vital to avoid
    wasting the enterprise, subsequently solely a foolish authorities would threaten to sanctions enterprise organizations that resolve to sack some employees.
    Everywhere in the world there are job cuts, however it is just in Nigeria that a minister would come out and threaten enterprise organizations.

    If there may be something the federal government must do, she must be taught from the enterprise organizations.
    Our civil service is overpopulated. As bitter as the reality might sound, the federal government wants
    to put off a few of its staff. There are many ways authorities
    can create jobs if personal organizations can’t do a lot.
    Authorities can construct industries, privatize them instantly by promoting shares to the
    general public.

  9. Most individuals would agree that Nigeria’s 1999 structure is a flawed
    doc. The product of a succession of manipulative army
    juntas, it was the shaky platform used to usher in a Fourth Republic that couldn’t look forward to the proper factor – given the tense political environment within the
    nation within the instant aftermath of the deaths of Common Sani Abacha and Chief M.Okay.O.

    Any structure written for a rustic with Nigeria’s range is sure to be
    problematic due to the necessity for countless compromise.

    In our case the settlement appears to have
    been to depart all the recent button nationwide points alone within the vain hope that some
    sages down the road will get round to addressing them.

    That has not occurred. As a substitute all these questions have come again to haunt
    us on an virtually every day foundation. That’s the reason most cheap individuals won’t argue with the necessity to amend the structure to allow our democracy develop.

    However a lot as amendments are fascinating, there’s a lot about the present course of that simply makes you marvel whether or not it won’t
    all finish in tears.

    On the final depend the Senate Advert-hoc Committee on the Evaluate of
    the Structure headed by Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, disclosed
    it had obtained 240 memoranda on the topic. An identical committee within the Home of Representatives
    says it has additionally acquired nicely over 200 such memos.

    It will recommend feverish curiosity in the method. However nothing may very well
    be farther from the reality. Highly effective pursuits like
    governors and different factions of the political elite have seized the method –
    predictably – and that is mirrored in context of the problems which are rising as high of the agenda for overview.

    Amongst them are issues like state creation, state police, tenure for political workplace holders, unbiased candidacy, proportional illustration, onshore-offshore dichotomy, indigeneship and adjustment of the thirteen% derivation precept.

    Some Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) are night pushing gadgets
    like rewriting the entire doc in gender-impartial language, or extra explicitly in order that references can be
    made particularly to “he” or “she” somewhat than the politically-incorrect present references to solely “he”.

    Within the unlikely occasion that this huge buying checklist
    of amendments cross muster, then the advocates would rejoice the truth that
    Nigeria has lastly joined the ranks of nations with so-referred to as ‘progressive’ constitutions.

    I beg to demur. What could also be progressive or fascinating
    for some won’t essentially be within the
    nationwide curiosity at this level in time. There are those that argue that you just don’t
    want a constitutional modification in different to create states.

    They are saying the process is already clearly spelt out in Part eight of the current doc.

    I might go additional to say it’s downright unpatriotic to be speaking about creation of latest
    states when lots of the prevailing ones are just about
    on their knees. State creation is a slippery slope. The Nigerian politician won’t
    ever get sated till we now have one for each ethnic nationality.

    Once more, take the problems with a six or seven yr single tenure, and the requests by
    registered political events for proportional illustration (PR)
    as technique of taking heat out of the contests for political
    workplace. I doubt whether or not the introduction of these things into the structure
    will change what’s mistaken with our politics.

    Even when we offer a single tenure, blood will probably be shed
    over who will get it at any level in time. As for a PR system that replaces the present first-previous-the-submit
    association, all that it’ll do is make sure
    that extra individuals – exterior of the present ruling events
    – hop on the gravy prepare. However is that in itself a assure that these new workplace holders could be coming to serve?
    You recognize the reply to that one.

    Let me reiterate that I’m all for amending the structure.
    However I believe we want a little bit of a actuality examine
    right here, and never go round pondering that we’ve discovered the proper cure for the issue with Nigeria.

    Let’s not overlook that there are nations which don’t actually have a written structure and issues nonetheless work in a moderately
    organised vogue. Three of these nations are New Zealand, the U.Ok and

    A structure alone is not any assure that the system will work.
    Certainly, amending the 1999 doc with out amending the attitudes of the
    individuals who will function it would merely
    make the on-going train an costly wild goose chase.

    A reckless and irresponsible driver will readily crash the perfect engineered and
    retooled automobile on earth, and the issue won’t be with the automobile however
    the driver’s immature conduct. Within the Nigerian case, reasonably than work on the driver
    we’d begin tinkering with engine of the blameless car.

    In discussing this problem I all the time undertaking a
    hypothetical situation. Most unbiased-minded individuals will say that
    the US structure works. Now, if all 200 million plus People had been faraway from their nation and
    changed with all 160 plus Nigerians, would that structure nonetheless work within the fingers of the brand new arrivals?

    A doc doesn’t a rustic make.

    For all of the flaws of the 1999 structure, my place is that
    we haven’t given ourselves sufficient time to make use of and check it.
    The United States structure which is 225 years outdated has solely been altered18 instances
    in that interval. In our case I’ve misplaced
    rely of the variety of events when we’ve sought to contact up the
    doc within the final thirteen years.

    A number of of these events we tried to take action for
    blatantly egocentric causes. A living proof is when former President Olusegun Obasanjo tried to amend the structure to present himself a 3rd
    time period – a stunt that blew up in his face and brief-circuited the method.

    Given the curiosity of presidents, governors and legislators in a number of
    the gadgets listed earlier, I imagine that some type of broad
    evaluate of the structure will occur within the not too distant future.
    It’s of their collective profession curiosity to see that they
    push this via. However what they are going to find yourself
    producing might be a doc by the political elite for
    the political elite – by no means thoughts
    the empty boasts about being the people’s representatives.

    The overwhelming majority of Nigerians usually are not engaged with what’s going on,
    and only a few perceive the way it may have an effect on their future.
    Many are in all probability battling with the devastating affect of floods which have swept away their properties to care about new states and single tenure.

    But when the continued evaluation is to be free from the stain of
    illegitimacy which the 1999 navy assemble suffers from, it
    must be subjected to some type of mass participation. If there will likely be
    no sovereign nationwide convention, a good compromise
    could be a nationwide referendum that enables ample time for nationwide dialogue at grassroots degree.

    I think that had been this to occur, among the issues which might be so essential
    to our politicians will swiftly chew the mud.

    Sadly, the middlemen within the Nationwide Meeting won’t ever let this occur.

  10. The enthronement, appreciation of indigenous languages, and the celebration African’s ingenuity in virtually all fields of life
    formed the one day Distinguish lecture series organised recently by Lagos State University, LASU,

    The lecture series tagged.” Third world universities, challenges of knowledge production, utilization and administration in the 21thcentury and “African languages in knowledge production,
    utilisation and administration in the 21th century, ” delivered by two guests lecturers from the United States Of America, USA , Prof Toyin Falola , a Nigerian Historian and Professor of African studies, University of Texas-at-Austin, and Prof. Fallou Ngom, a scholar of Anthropology, Boston, University, was convened by Prof. Amodu Sanni and hosted by the LASU Vice Chancellor, Prof. Lanre Fagbohun.

    Speaking on the “Third world universities, challenges of knowledge production,
    utilization and administration in the 21thcentury,” Prof Falola said that until Africans began to appreciate their enormous impact in the advancement of knowledge and revolution the world over, their achievements will remain unsung.

    Prof. Falola who gave 10 pointers of achievements of Africans within and in diaspora noted that, ”
    Complaints and looking down on ourselves undermine our achievements.
    This as the massive expansion in world’s knowledge and revolution in Africa,
    largely achieved by us never get celebrated.”

    “We are part of a global knowledge economy. So professionals in Africa have to create a diaspora of knowledge that should be continuously celebrated and reinvented.

    “added the Africa Historian

    For Prof Ngom, who spoke on “African languages in knowledge production, utilisation and administration in the
    21th century,” Africans should reject any form subjection by the West to undermine the continent’s rich epistemology of her culture and traditions.

    On his part, Prof. Oke Bukola ,Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission,NUC, while commending the lecturers for their contributions to African history debunked the claims that Nigerian education system was bad. His words, “Age, number of professors and the contents are pointers to great Nigeria achievements when comparing to the history and peculiarities of great universities like
    Harvard, Cambridge who boost of huge budgets, many professors aside other
    qualities. For instance, the entire annual budget for Harvard University
    is equivalent to the budget of 153 Nigeria universities for a period of 30 years.
    All we need more efforts should be geared into promoting our ingenuity.

  11. I used to be recommended this website via my cousin. I’m not positive whether or not this publish is written through him as no one else understand such unique approximately my trouble.
    You are incredible! Thank you!

  12. Oh my goodness! Awesome article dude! Thanks, However I am having difficulties

  13. Because the race to the hilltop mansion gathers momentum, it’s pertinent for all political
    stakeholders, proposed delegates and electorates to ask questions and
    search in-depth explanations past opinions offered by sycophants and paid reward singers, who are usually not
    insured within the scheme of issues.

    Akwa Ibom folks ought to search to be properly vested with political indices of the state
    and be daring sufficient to confront nature in a bid to unravel sure mysteries and redefine the political construction of the state forward of the 2015 Governorship

    The undefined political puzzle within the state has constantly defied human manipulation and ought to be thought-about
    a prime precedence. Ignoring this delicate ingredient would quantity to
    committing political suicide or prying into unrewarding gyrations of paid political sycophant in irrelevant teams and corners of the state whose 2015 calculations are based mostly
    on handbook optimism embedded within the help of thuggery
    and electoral manipulations, which itself is a dicey, turbulent and contradictory permutation brimming with horror and chance of
    progress however regrettably of redolent hopes enshrined in benumbing hopelessness.

    Essentially the most intriguing and scary political query on the lips of Akwa Ibom folks is the historic impact of letters A, B, E and that i
    within the upcoming Gubernatorial election. No surprise providence determined as a pre-requisite to ascend the Hiltop
    Mansion, that the primary or surname of the primary citizen of the state as a matter of no compromise should
    start with the letter ‘A’. One wonders if this relies on the truth that our forebears
    determined to call the state ‘A’kwa ‘A’basi Ibom!
    Some faculties of ideas imagine a political covenant was sealed with the Supreme Being with the letter ‘A” as bait.

    Clarence Darrow noticed that historical past repeats itself and likewise added “that is among
    the issues mistaken with history”. Akwa Ibom’s political historical past actually attest to this, in phrases of people which have democratically governed the state since creation in 1987, starting from Obong ‘A’kpan Isemin, Obong Victor ‘A’ttah, Chief Godswill ‘A’kpabio, and now the providential romance has discovered love once more in a younger, and dynamic politician, Mr. Bassey ‘A’lbert.

    Though, hordes of political scientists for some self made causes rose to counter first Episode of this write up, arguments have been anchored on the truth that, providence’s plan of action is all the time based mostly on holy trinity; God the father, Son and The Holy Spirit as they modeled it to signify ‘A’kpan Isemin, Victor ‘A’ttah and Godswill ‘A’kpabio. Some are additionally of the opinion that the circle has reached a crescendo with the current political dispensation; therefore there can be a paradigm shift.

    It’s of immense curiosity to ask what alphabet follows A. With the letter B following A, Mr. ‘B’assey Albert is on the trail of rewriting the historical past of Akwa Ibom state but once more. Away from the historic perspective of his continued political uplift, Mr. Bassey Albert is grossly favoured and accepted by God and the nice folks of Akwa Ibom State. This is clear in his broad acceptability throughout the 31 native Authorities Areas of the state.

    The fad of historical past is captured by the hand of a supreme being (God) with respect to who will occupy the hilltop mansion come 2015. Whether or not we admit to it or not, historic revelations like it will deliver political path and as properly affect the trail of victory or how else will one clarify the truth that the primary civilian Governor of the state got here from ‘E’tinan, after which we had Obong Victor Attah from ‘I’besikpo Asutan and now Godswill Akpabio from ‘E’ssien Udim.

    The prediction is easy as nature has a approach of balancing permutations, first got here E-representing Etinan, we had one other E-once more to praise, representing Essien Udim. Ibesikpo Asutan representing ‘I’ is presently complaining bitterly to Akwa Ibom folks to additionally settle her with a twin because the case was for ‘E’tinan and ‘E’ssien Udim. It was for this goal that God divinely organized Mr. Bassey Albert’s beginning greater than fourty years in the past in Ididep, ‘I’biono Ibom Native Authorities Space, his origin has offered a solution to the quest of a twin for ‘I’.

    Akwa Ibom folks, the indicators have been despatched from heaven, and we may be relaxation assured that management questions typically raised in latest occasions with respect to the 2015 gubernatorial race has lastly gotten a solution in Mr. Bassey Albert Akpan, as a result of the individuals, historical past and nature have all spoken in a single voice.

    God Bless Akwa Ibom

  14. A human rights lawyer and Senior Advocate on Nigeria, Mr.
    Femi Falana, has described as anomalous the doubtless bid by Governor Ayodele Fayose to hunt re-election within the Ekiti
    State governorship poll in 2018.

    Fayose had mentioned on Monday that he would contest the 2018 governorship election in order that he
    may serve out his first time period which was truncated in 2006.

    The governor was impeached in 2006, however the Supreme Court docket, in 2014, nullified
    the impeachment that ousted him from workplace about seven months to
    the tip of his first time period, describing the removing as unlawful.

    Talking on a reside broadcast on Ekiti State Tv in Ado-Ekiti,
    on Monday, Fayose argued that because the apex courtroom had declared that his impeachment
    in 2006 was unlawful, he would then need to method the identical
    court docket to interpret what the ruling meant and in addition consider looking for re-election in 2018.

    Whereas Falana, Emeka Ngige (SAN); Sebastine Hon (SAN); Paul Ananaba (SAN) and a Lagos-based mostly authorized practitioner,
    Jiti Ogunye, argued that Fayose’s bid was unconstitutional and certain to fail, one other SAN, Chief Mike Ozekhome, believed
    the courtroom may grant Fayose the chance to serve out the seven months
    remaining in his first time period earlier than he was impeached.

    Falana mentioned Fayose’s bid to hunt re-election would quantity to tenure elongation which no courtroom may grant.

    The senior advocate acknowledged, “Tenure extension by a governor below any disguise is anomalous. No court docket can prolong the tenure of a sitting governor past the 2 phrases prescribed by the Structure.

    “In the case of Governor Rasheed Ladoja v INEC, the appellant needed an extension of his time period of workplace to permit him to spend further eleven months whereas he was combating his impeachment from

    “Although the Supreme Courtroom had put aside his impeachment, it was held that the relief was unlawful and unconstitutional.

    “Similarly, the governors who had been re-elected after their preliminary
    election was annulled, the Supreme Court docket made it abundantly
    clear that tenure extension was unknown to the Structure.

    “In view of the settled place of the regulation on the matter, Governor Ayo Fayose’s request can’t be granted by any court docket in Nigeria.”

    Ngige argued that antecedents confirmed that the court docket couldn’t
    grant the request of the governor.

    The senior advocate added, “My personal understanding is that primarily based on the Supreme Courtroom selections on former governor Peter Obi versus the Impartial Nationwide Electoral Fee, and former governor Rasheed Ladoja towards the (Oyo) state Home of Meeting, Fayose will not be eligible to contest one other time period.

    “The then Oyo State governor had complained to the courtroom
    about his impeachment by the state Home of Meeting, which truncated his tenure, and later voided, and
    sought to increase his tenure by the variety of days to reclaim his
    mandate; however the Supreme Court docket instructed him pointedly that it was not attainable.

    “The similar factor applies to Fayose. He had taken an oath of workplace, whether or not rightly or wrongly however he was impeached alongside the road and later, the impeachment was voided by the courtroom. However that’s to not say that the tenure didn’t run.

    “However, I feel the governor is completely entitled to hunt for
    judicial interpretation of his eligibility to contest one other time period of workplace.
    It’s a democratic sense to do this. He can attempt his luck.”

    Hon, cited the circumstances of Ladoja and Obi, saying the apex courtroom settled the problem that wrongful impeachment might by no means function grounds to increase a statutorily outlined time period of workplace.

    He mentioned the Supreme Courtroom was not prone to overrule itself if Fayose approached the courtroom.

    Hon, an creator, added, “The 4 years which a governor is
    entitled to for a time period can’t be damaged simply due to impeachment or as a
    result of the election of anyone was nullified and the individual was exterior and later got here again.

    “Those points have been settled by the Supreme Courtroom and that i don’t see the courtroom overruling itself and that i don’t suppose Governor Fayose has any proper to come back again underneath the regulation.”

    Ananaba additionally mentioned Fayose couldn’t search
    re-election, having taken the oath of workplace for the workplace of the governor twice.

    Though Ananaba mentioned it was a problem that needs to be examined in court docket,
    he expressed doubt whether or not Fayose was truly critical about in search of re-election.

    The SAN added, “The problem is whether or not he has taken the oath of workplace for the place of a governor twice. If the reply isn’t any, then he can search re-election but when the reply is sure, he can’t search re-election.

    “But I believe it’s a matter that must be examined in court docket.

    “Although I’m conscious that that sure rules have been settled, the legislation is being developed every single day. However I don’t suppose he really needs to run.”

    However Ozekhome mentioned Fayose may persuade
    the courtroom and be compensated for seven months to fulfil his constitutional two

    Ozekhome argued that Fayose may solely search to serve
    out in 2018 the seven months subtracted from his
    first tenure.

    He stated, “The fact is that if I remember rigorously, Fayose received the matter that his impeachment was unlawful. And if it was declared unlawful by a court docket, it means then that it by no means was. If a reliable court docket declared the impeachment as null and void, it then signifies that the seven months for which he was impeached had been illegally taken from his two phrases. Subsequently, I’ll say that the place there’s a proper, there’s a treatment.

    “So, as soon as Fayose can show that he was illegally eliminated and that illegality has been confirmed by a courtroom of regulation, it signifies that within the
    eyes of the legislation, he was nonetheless a governor however was prevented from performing through the impeachment.
    He can due to this fact search for recompense for these months to benefit from the unexpired residue of seven months for which
    his governorship was truncated.

    “Fayose could have stated the assertion as a politician to fly a kite, however I can guarantee you that he has touched on one thing of severe constitutional import. Fayose is just not on the lookout for 4 years, however seven months.
