However, some of the prosecution witnesses told the court that prior to the incident, the convict was in the habit of beating his             injuries on her.

At the trial, Akolade had denied killing his wife, saying that the deceased attempted to stab him with a knife but he managed to seize the knife from her, claiming that in the process, he “sustained a deep cut on his left hand.� He had also claimed that his late wife stabbed herself to death on the day of the incident after he

According to him, the result also showed that the late Titilayo “had 76 injuries on her body, some of which were on her left arm, chest, ribs and heart. There were also injuries on her stomach.â€?

convict. Relying on the report of the post mortem, Justice Okunnu said the prosecution proved ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ that the convict murdered his wife. “I have carefully considered all the evidence before me. I have read through the submission of all the counsels. Section 361 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State states that the prosecution should be able to prove whether the defendant carried out the act wilfully knowing full well that death would occur. The prosecution must prove that the defendant is guilty of the charge. The prosecution has relied on circumstantial evidence to prove that the defendant killed his wife.â€? She further said: “I am convinced that the deceased died as a result of multiple stabs to the chest and body. I found the evidence of Professor Fafunwa relevant concerning the cause of death of the deceased because of my         ing a forensic expert. It is evident that the defendant is the * %        he was the one that stabbed Omozoje to death. I do not          for a normal person to know that death would be the result of multiple stabs.

The defendant is hereby convicted for murder and is sentenced to death,â€? the learned judge held.

Sanusi: More details of financial recklessness exposed Continued from Page 1 under Sanusi of ‘persistent refusal to comply with the Public Procurement Act’ in     fairs. For example, section 15(1) (a) of the Act is to guide pub       ment of goods, works and services. But the report said the CBN under Sanusi failed to comply with its provisions, thereby undermining the yearning for transparency and accountability in the conduct of government business. Said the report: “Available information indicates that the Central Bank has over the years engaged in the procurement of goods, works and services worth billions of Naira each year without complying with the express provisions of the PPA.â€? Further to it, the report listed a number of infractions said to have been committed by the apex bank under Sanusi’s direct supervision. “The unacceptable level

   played by the leadership of   !"#      execution of ‘intervention projects’ across the country. So far, about 63 such projects have gulped about N163 billion from the CBN,â€? it added. $        tigators submitted that, “it is inexcusable, and patently unlawful for any agency of government to deploy huge sums of money as the CBN did, without appropriation and outside CBN’s statutory mandate.â€? Furthermore, the CBN under Sanusi was equally indicted of being unable to      ments, using what was described as International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). It stated: “Undoubtedly, this laxity on the part of our apex bank, apart from calling to question its capacity for proper corporate governance, is capable of sending wrong signals to both the domestic and international

investors on the state of the Nigerian economy.� Other infractions said to have been committed by the CBN under Sanusi include: Breaching the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between the CBN and other Deposit Money Banks on Banking Resolution Sinking Fund, with the result that Sanusi as governor failed since 2010 to constitute the board of trustees (BoT) to manage the said fund. Meanwhile, the CBN reportedly continued to “utilise the fund for certain operations without approval of the said BoT.� The CBN under Sanusi was also said to have acquired seven per cent shares of the International Islamic Management Corporation of Malaysia with N743 million, in violation of Section 34(b) of the CBN Act of 2007. Curiously, in 2012, the CBN under Sanusi reportedly spent about N3.1 billion on “promotional activities as if it was in competition with

any other institution in Nigeria.â€? Sanusi also got the spanking for presiding over N20.2 billion on “legal and professional fees in 2011, beyond all reasonable standards of prudence and accountability.â€? Perhaps more ludicrous, Sanusi’s CBN, in 2012, claimed to have spent approximately N1.3 billion on “private guards and lunch for policemen.â€? Above all, according to the report, “while section 6(3) (c) of the CBN Act 2007 provides that the board of the CBN is to make recommendations to Mr. President on the rate of remuneration to its auditors, the bank under Sanusi consistently observed the provision in breach, and even went on to change one of the joint external auditors        of the President.â€? More than anything else,     conduct, Saturday Newswatch learnt last night, is what led to Sanusi’s removal as governor of the CBN.

We’ll arrest Amaechi in 2015, Wike boasts Nath Omame, Port Harcourt

T

he seeming political crisis in Rivers State which culminated in the defection of Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi with four other Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors on November 26 last year, took a dramatic twist in Port Harcourt yesterday, following the declaration of the Supervising

Minister of Education, Mr. Nyesom Wike, that Amaechi would be arrested after President Goodluck Jonathan has been declared winner of the 2015 presidential election. Wike declared: “They can sit in Government House and approve whatever amount of money they like for Governor Amaechi to spend. But let me tell you that Governor Amaechi and his friends will ac-

count for all the monies they are appropriating and spending now.� He then threatened: “Once the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announces the victory of President Jonathan, we will immediately shut down the Port Harcourt International Airport and all land and sea boarders in Rivers State to prevent Governor Amaechi

from escaping. Does he think we don’t know that he is planning to run away? But he and his cohorts will not succeed.� Wike added: “All they can do thereafter is to lock themselves inside Government House and at the appropriate time we will go there and pick them up, one after the other.

He stated that the remains of the deceased had been deposited at the mortuary of the State Specialists Hospital, Akure, while her husband who sustained injuries from the attack was still receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital, also in the state capital. It was gathered Jerry had a bad record in the area, having been rusticated at FUTA and Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo, for being a member of a secret cult. Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Kwara State Command, Mr. Ambrose Aisabo, said yesterday that the command has arrested three out of the six students of the state College of Health   $

    &] town, who allegedly gangraped their female colleague in the institution. The CP, at a media briefing in Ilorin, said the victim was allegedly drugged by the suspects (names withheld) before they allegedly raped her. According to the police boss, the suspects allegedly raped the female student â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;mercilessly until she became unconscious.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He stated that the female student was being treated at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, adding that the remaining three suspects would be apprehended and the six suspects prosecuted. Aisabo also said the command had arrested three suspects (names withheld) for acts of cultism.

Wike observed that Amaechi is afraid of everyone because he appears to have sworn to be betrayed by everybody that comes around him. Wike said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amaechi is afraid. We will not beg him. Why is Amaechi afraid of everybody? He is afraid that the Speaker of the House of Assembly will betray him. He is afraid that the Chief Judge recommended by the National Judicial Council will betray him. Why is Amaechi afraid of everybody? When did Amaechi become an oracle or priest that everybody will now make an appearance to swear?â&#x20AC;? Deputy National chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, who also spoke at the event, said Amaechi is a temporary occupant of the Government House, adding that the PDP would not allow him to choose his successor in 2015, because Rivers State is for PDP.

2015:Delta FRSC strategises, advises motorists on speed limit device

Sale of Shell oil fields:Bayelsa Assembly, oil communities insist on participation I

T

he Bayelsa State House of Assembly and oil producing communities of Nembe Kingdom have insisted that they must participate in the proposed sale of the 97-kilometre Nembe Creek Trunkline (NCTL) owned by Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC). In a motion moved by the leader of the Bayelsa State House of Assembly, Hon. Peter Akpe, which was unanimously adopted by the members, the House called on the oil multinationals to allow the oil-bearing

communities in the state to participate in bidding and selling of the oil facilities. According to the resolution of the House of Assembly, though the bidding process for oil and gas assets in the state q‘€z ‘+‘~jx’z Ž“”x{“€z interest, the International Oil Companies (IOC) working in the Bayelsa territory involved in the bidding process should give ample opportunity ‘Ž’z •}{}j–z ‘+xŽj}{Žz to the Bayelsa State Government and its indigenes to fully partake in the diverse net process. The Chairman of Oil ‘Ž’z ‘€z~{””}+xxz}Žzjqxz

Nembe Kingdom, Chief Nengi James, warned that failure of the SPDC to allow the leaders from Nembe communities led by his Royal Majesty, King Edmund Dakoru, to have equal participation in the bidding process to acquire the oil facility will trigger crises in the area. He said though preliminary investigation have shown that some highly placed individuals in the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) have concluded plans to exclude the oil communities from the bidding and

sales processes, the communities have issued a warning that the prospective buyers should beware. According to James, “if the communities in Nembe Kingdom are not allowed to participate in the bidding and sales of their oil facilities, they cannot guarantee the eventual buyers of proper security on the facility and their investments. What we are demanding is that the buyer must consult and include the oil communities, as owners in the bidding processes. The King of Nembe must lead the people in this fair process.”

He said the enforcement of speed

irst Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, said yesterday that education is the key to human capital development, as well as the basis for national development. Thus, for her, the quality of education provided today would determine the quality of leaders the country would produce in the future. She said it is for this reason that the Transformation Agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan aims at improving opportunities in the major sectors of the economy, including education. Dame Jonathan stated this at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), while laying the foundation of a 15-storey female hostel named after her

The governor and the Speaker of the House, Hon.

2015: If Jonathan loses, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll return to classroom â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bozimo Alawoei Broderick Bozimo was the Minister of Police Affairs between 2003 and 2007. That was during President Olusegun Obasanjoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administration. He is also a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South South region. He spoke with SYLVESTER IDOWU on some national issues. Excerpts:

D

o you think Nigerians would get a free and fair election in 2015? Yes, I think so. The reason I think so is because the last election - the presidential election that President Goodluck Jonathan oversaw - was generally accepted. It was a very good election that was adjudged one of the best in the history of this country. The President himself has given that assurance again and I believe him - because to my mind, he is not a door-die politician. If President Jonathan is defeated fairly {Â&#x17D;zjqxzx|x~j{Â&#x2018;|z x|Â&#x2019;ÂŁzqxz¢}||z graciously go back to become Â&#x2018;z|x~jÂ&#x201C;xz{zÂ&#x2DC;{zÂ&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;zÂŤ}||z Â&#x20AC;qz}Â&#x17D;z his Ijaw territory like some of us did when we retired from government service. More so, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chairman has repeatedly said that the 2015 election will be free and fair. We must not lose sight of the fact that before now, elections were not very good. But with the current trend, there is improvement. The zÂ&#x2122;{Â&#x20AC;Â&#x20AC;ÂŁz{Â?ÂŞz+Â&#x2018;q}Â&#x201C;z Jega, said so too, though you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have perfect elections. Where in the word do you have a perfect election? Is it America that boasts of robust democracy? Have you Â?{Â&#x2DC;{+xÂ&#x17D;z¢qÂ&#x2018;jzqÂ&#x2018;Â&#x2022;Â&#x2022;xÂ&#x17D;xÂ&#x2019;zj{z former President George Bush, when they were counting votes like in my village and all the kinds of nonsense that followed? I believe it is possible that we have a credible election in 2015. Insecurity is the order of the day in some parts of the country. This is becoming a challenge to both the Federal Government and the people of Nigeria. What is your take on this? I think we are on top of the situation. I recall that insecurity started

long before the present administration. I was the }Â&#x17D;}Â&#x20AC;jxz{Â?z{|}~xz.Â&#x2018;}Â&#x20AC;z between 2003 and 2007 and I know that at about 2005, Boko Haram had started rearing its ugly head in Borno State and some other places. I had to personally go there when they burnt some police stations Â&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;z~{Â&#x201D;Â&#x201D;}+xÂ&#x2019;zÂ&#x2018;||zÂ&#x20AC;{jÂ&#x20AC;z{Â?z atrocities. Since that time, that problem has been there. You know that terrorism is assuming a new shape and form worldwide, and would you have thought they will go and bomb Kenya? So it is a trend that is beginning to emerge in a forceful way. But I think the present administration is addressing it. With the emergency rule that was put in place, I believe that we are on the course; and let us not forget that Nigeria is highly developed intellectually. We may not have the infrastructural and other developmental indices to match the brain power of our people, but we are not the kind of people that will say Boko Haram }Â&#x20AC;z~{Â&#x201D;Â&#x201D;}+}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;z havoc and then go and drop poison gas as was alleged in Syria. We are a compassionate nation, so Mr. President is very cautious. I must applaud the measured ways he has gone about addressing the problem. But sir, there is a general belief that the issue of Boko Haram has both international and religious colourations. So how best do you think we can tackle the problem of insurgency? I believe that the Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategies are on course. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that it is by only one method that we can eradicate Boko Haram. Remember, initially there was the carrot and stick approach. I still believe in that. You remember the idea of Continued on Page 16

Electorate will shock politicians â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bozimo Continued from Page 15

    First, I think that is the hallmark of democracy. People must be free to express their views by their actions from time to time. I think the PDP has already started to do what has to be done to put its house in order. We have installed a new chairman. He is a younger man. The former chairman did his best and had his own strategies for addressing the problems Â&#x2122;Â&#x201C;jz zjq}Â&#x17D;ÂŤzqxz Â&#x17D;}Â&#x20AC;qxÂ&#x2019;zq}Â&#x20AC;z tenure by resigning because of the outcry from those opposed to his continued reign. So I think the new chairman will learn from the strategies of the old chairman, which did not go down well with everybody. Having said that, we should not have the notion that Nigerians are too naĂŻve; that all you have to do is for the leaders of the political parties to move from one Corruption is being group to another and expect       that because they move,               the whole nation is moving with them. People will    get the shock of their lives There is no question when the elections come. at all that corruption is Let us not forget that this prevalent in Nigeria. story about corruption and But I will also add that impunity is not limited corruption is not restricted to any one political party. to Nigeria.

It is a disease corrupt people are featuring here and there. People will that we must radically decide at the appropriate address. Government, to time. So it is not disturbing my knowledge, is doing me much.

a free and fair election. He said already that one drop of a Nigerianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blood must not be spilled for his re-election. The man is not a do-or-die politician. He has done his best; so if Nigerians say at the election they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t vote for him, it is Ok. But give him a fair chance to test his popularity not before the South West, South East or North, but the Nigerian electorate.

amnesty was mooted at one time but Boko Haram was not going to have any of that. So we have to go on tackling it systematically, and progress is being made. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be told that progress is being made; we are seeing it. Before now, it was explosions all over the place; but now they have been limited to the extreme areas of Borno and other border areas. So we will get there not by one method alone. There will be other strategies, including employment. The foot soldiers are mostly idle hands. If employment is created for them, the problem will be solved. But it must go pari pasu with the conventional method of stick and carrot. I think the President is doing the right thing.

Bozimo to the electorate and the electorate should seize the opportunity. So, the political leaders, electorate, INEC and everybody should be alert to his responsibility. At the end of the day, it is Nigeria that will win, not the political parties.          !"!

 4( /            !         3 My only comment will be that it is unfortunate. I think that is politics for you. You go for the underbelly of your opponent. You feel that President Jonathan may come again. So how do we tackle him? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go to his backyard and cause trouble for him there, destabilise his base so that people will say that the South South region is not with him. Politicians must be very naĂŻve to believe that; that is anything to go by. My friend, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, was not welcomed in the South West in those days but he still won. So whatever he is doing is not the issue. President Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s party should be able to sell a good programme and I honestly believe that Dr. Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presidency is probably the best that this country has ever had - because he is nice; he does not throw his weight around. But his programmes are not being sold properly. He is being under-sold. I am just warning that people should not think that because the Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s South South base is going through some crisis, he would lose. It does not follow. Chief Obasanjo clearly demonstrated that the ticket is for the whole of Nigeria and not just the Yoruba people alone. I believe the hand of God is upon President Jonathan. I am serious about that and I believe that if he goes on like that, he will conduct

                       6   7(  Before now, the whole nation was agog demanding for a conference, saying that we must meet to resolve the basis of our statehood bla bla bla. President Jonathan now says that is enough: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will do it but what do we have?â&#x20AC;? So I support the national conference. And I believe that some of the expressed fears may be addressed there. I also believe that it is possible we go into a referendum. That is no big deal for me if the National Assembly says it will do the right things here and there. But we keep saying that we have not negotiated the basis of the union. Who negotiates the basis of a nation? Look at the United }Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;Â&#x2019;{Â&#x201D;z¤zjqxzÂ&#x2122;Â&#x2018;+|xzjqxÂ&#x2013;z had in the 10th century or so. People were compelled to be part of Great Britain. }||zj{Â&#x2019;Â&#x2018;Â&#x2013;ÂŁzjqxz~{+}Â&#x20AC;qz and Irish people are not too happy but they were united, and that was how they conquered the Africans in unity. For me, I believe in Nigeria; I believe that we should not tamper with the unity of this country. In unity, you have strength. As for those manoeuvring now, I believe at the end they will realise the danger in pursuing a personal agenda to the detriment of this great country. If you are not careful - when you get your personal agenda in place - you will probably have nobody to execute the agenda. So personal agenda must not over-ride the national agenda. In conclusion, I believe in a united Nigeria. I believe that we should not rock the boat. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that nations are negotiated by persons; it has never happened before. We are lucky that Lord Lugard brought us together in a conference; his wife was gracious to say this place should be called Niger Area. So is it their fault that we have not made a success of it?

Politics Confab:Yoruba group urges stakeholders to pick delegates with caution

Mansur Oladunjoye onveners of the Yoruba Constitutional Conference have urged all stakeholders who are to nominate delegates to the forthcoming national conference to be cautious before endorsing anyone as a delegate. In a letter signed on behalf of the conveners by Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former national team captain, Segun Odegbami, the group advised that would-be delegates must not â&#x20AC;&#x153;trivialise the forthcoming national conference or reduce it to a platform for canvassing esoteric interests at the expense of allinclusive national interests.â&#x20AC;?

APC directive:Frustration of 2014 budget shoots down impunity in Rivers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; State APC chairman they would accept to follow it. The party is afraid that the people are fed up with it. It is afraid that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the answers to questions that would be raised at the grassroots. It is afraid that the people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see it. The party is running away from the people. And now it is taking refuge in violence. I want to tell them that violence does not pay and that there is always an end to violence. Nobody has the monopoly of violence. Violence consumes.

Dr. Davies Ikanya is the interim chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State. He is one of the arrowheads in the task of delivering the state from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC. Undaunted by the responsibility before him, Ikanya in this interview with AMAKA AGBU, talks about the critics of the APCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s controversial directive to its National Assembly (NASS) members, the rising %     ' % ! membership drive, CP Mbu Joseph Mbuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s removal, the national conference, remedy to Boko Haram insurgency and other burning issues. Excerpts:

W

hat is your view of the membership drive of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that is supposed to be peaceful but has been provoking >     (  Rivers State? First, I want to thank God for the registration exercise that commenced on February 5, 2014. Our God is real. Our God is true. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve started the registration. We started by sensitising our people and then distributed materials. In the local governments, we were sure that people would register. On the night of the 4th of this month we got some intelligence report that the Grassroots Development Initiatives (GDI) which is the campaign organisation of the Supervising Minister of Education, Barrister Nyesom Wike and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Chief Felix Obuah in Rivers State met and resolved that the only way to stop the APC is to disrupt the registration. So, they planned and instructed the very few supporters that they have in the various wards to cause trouble in all the centres. Luckily for us, that instruction was not completely obeyed because even the miscreants they sent out to the polling units to disrupt the exercise felt bad. Some of them have confessed, asking why they were sending them on that kind of errand. It is not election yet. It is just registration into the party; so what is their business disrupting such a process. I discovered that there is no PDP any more in Rivers State. People have decamped massively from it following the declaration of Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi for the APC, which was closely followed by the defection of our honourable members in the House of Representatives and majority of senators in the Senate from Rivers State. Now, that has xÂ&#x20AC;Â&#x201C;|jxÂ&#x2019;z}Â&#x17D;zÂ&#x2018;zÂ&#x2122;Â&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;¢Â&#x2018;Â&#x2DC;{Â&#x17D;zx.x~jÂŞz{ÂŁz you discover that they have lost the people; they have lost the ground and their only option is to cause violence. That is what we are seeing. It is very shameful that somebody like Wike who boasted that he would conduct a thanksgiving

service if Amaechi leaves the PDP has now become uncomfortable with the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure. He asked Amaechi to leave the PDP. This same person, instead of going for a thanksgiving service, is now arming people to go about destroying properties, disrupting the political process in the state. It is very shameful. With all the violence the APC experienced in the registration exercise in Rivers State, is the party planning an extension of time to meet its target? Well, the extension of time is not within the purview of the state. It is a national decision. But you can make recommendations As we progress, we will assess what we are doing here. If it is necessary, we will apply to our national headquarters for extension of time. For now, despite the disturbances, the registration exercise is going on well. Well, we ¢}||zjÂ&#x2013;ÂŞz Â?z¢xz~Â&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x17D;{jz Â&#x17D;}Â&#x20AC;qz¢}jq}Â&#x17D;z the stipulated time, we will apply to the national executive council for extension. Since the registration was riddled with violence, are you        particularly those of 2015, would be free and fair? I still want to thank God. If the PDP didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show this level of violence, no one would have thought that anybody was planning violence during the registration. But from what you can see, the law enforcement agencies would have to gear up and expect that they may scale up violence during the elections. Why I am again thanking God is that now the people have known that this is the style of our opponents. I think that the Â&#x2022;{|}~xzÂ&#x20AC;q{Â&#x201C;|Â&#x2019;zÂ&#x2122;xzÂ&#x2122;x+xzÂ&#x2022;xÂ&#x2022;Â&#x2018;xÂ&#x2019;ÂŞz I think also that all the organs of government that are in charge of Â&#x20AC;x~Â&#x201C;}jÂ&#x2013;z¢}||zÂ&#x2122;xzÂ&#x2122;x+xzÂ&#x2022;xÂ&#x2022;Â&#x2018;xÂ&#x2019;z for the elections of 2015 so that from now they can begin to do something about it. If those who are perpetuating violence are made to face the law: if those caught carrying guns on the street were arrested and prosecuted by the police, then we will be able to arrest the situation

Ikanya before 2015. So, I am calling on the Nigerian police to step up their gear. I will continue to thank God that Mbu Joseph Mbu, the state commissioner for police, has been removed. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to comment on that.

Why are you using the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s polling booths for the APC registration exercise in spite of PDPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outcry that the action is fraudulent? We are not using INECâ&#x20AC;&#x2DC;s booths for the registration. Rather, what we are using are polling units. Polling units are a constitutional designation, which INEC is supposed to use. It means that in the federation, we have the senatorial zones, the federal constituencies, state constituencies and local government constituencies. These are not delineations of INEC. They are units by which you can identify people. So, a polling unit means a place where people who vote there situate and we in the APC say we want to democratise. We want to be practical. Which unit do you belong? Go there and register so that we know that this is where you have also registered to vote as a member of the APC during the election. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s test our popularity from the units. If there are 1000 people in a unit, how many are ready to belong to our party. We are taking the exercise to the grassroots level. A polling unit is not a house. It is a designated place where certain people would go to ÂĄ{jxzÂ&#x20AC;{zÂ&#x2013;{Â&#x201C;zÂ&#x2018;xz}Â&#x2019;xÂ&#x17D;j} xÂ&#x2019;zÂ&#x2018;{Â&#x201C;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;z that zone. We want to get the people in that zone to join us in the APC. If the PDP feels it is popular with the people, let it also go to the units and ask the people to join it. It is an open market. Let it not carry guns or knives. Let it talk to the people. Our people are there. Our people are intelligent. Let the PDP go and talk with the people and see whether

The directive by the APCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national executive council (EXCO) to its NASS members to frustrate all government bills over the political crisis in Rivers State has been condemned in many quarters and it does appear that the directive is making the party unpopular. Do you think the party made a mistake? As progressives, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you think that this is not a progressive move? The party is progressive. The directive is more progressive than people can think. The directive has worked. Have you not seen that it has worked? The PDP was playing God. It was not ready to negotiate with anybody. Give account of the budget; it will not. Come and say how you spent the last money, you will not. It was just going on like that. Now that the APC has the majority in the House of Representatives, they are saying that we are not going to pass this budget; we want to scrutinise it. qxÂ&#x2013;zÂ&#x2018;xzÂ&#x20AC;}+}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;zÂ&#x201C;Â&#x2022;zÂ&#x17D;{¢ªz{¢£zjqxÂ&#x2013;z know that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have all the powers.

Everything is propaganda. PDP will always say, oh, we have one million tonnes of grains and they will just mention the amount of money spent. They will also say we have spent so much billions of naira on so and so. Where are those things? They only appear on the pages of the newspapers. Nothing is really happening. And now the APC is saying no; letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sit down and talk. Where are those things? Take us to those things.

In addition, those who have built on government-owned lands live with the uncertainty of governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intentions and, therefore, have no way of regularising their status.

In terms of valuation in sales transactions, Ogun State properties are relatively undervalued compared with similar properties in its

That is the more reason the state government came up with the HOCI idea so that the people of the state could regularise the documents of their properties at a huge discount. Meanwhile, the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most concern which involves planning for the medium and

long term needs of the state is being hampered by lack of data on the residents and their needs.

In order to move forward on the Mission to Rebuild the state, government needs to recognise the need for reliable population data as it plans for the future needs of the state.

Business & Economy When will bank robberies end? The activities of men of the underworld in Nigerian      become rampant, in fact, embarrassing to bank staff and customers alike. Only last month, the bandits visited some commercial banks in Kwara State, leaving about 10 persons dead while several others were injured. They also   4 %  amount of money. Despite efforts by banks to curb the menace, the problem still persists. JOHNMARK UKOKO reports.

R

obbery in banks is as old as the banking institution itself. At the inception of modern banking in Europe, robbery cases were common. But with the deployment of state-of-the-art technology and other measures, the situation seemed to have been brought under control in those countries, but the situation remains worrisome despite assurances by stakeholders in the security Â&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;z Â&#x17D;Â&#x2018;Â&#x17D;~}Â&#x2018;|zÂ&#x20AC;x~j{Â&#x20AC;zjqÂ&#x2018;jzÂ&#x201D;{xz measures are being put in place on a daily basis.

A banker, Mr. Andy Inibong, in an interview with Saturday Newswatch, disclosed that local banks have installed security doors at their entrances, to prevent armed unauthorized persons from gaining entry to the banking halls. Inibong stressed that banks introduced electronic cards, money transfers and other e-payment products to discourage movement of large volumes of cash in the banking halls. The banker also added that two years ago, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) introduced

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cashless policyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to discourage the movement of large cash in and out of banks. On why bank robbery has continued unabated despite various measures to curb the menace, he noted that human factor has been the major reason that bank robbery thrives in the country, hinting that Â&#x20AC;{Â&#x201D;xz~{Â&#x201C;Â&#x2022;jz{,~}Â&#x2018;|Â&#x20AC;z¢q{zÂ&#x2018;~jzÂ&#x2018;Â&#x20AC;z moles for the criminals outside the banking system remain a major challenge. A lecturer in the Department of Banking and Finance, Lagos State University (LASU), Dr. Lekan Alawode, said incessant cases of bank robberies in the country is a worrisome development, adding that the menace is giving the country a bad image. The don also recalled that three years ago, banks in Ijebu Ode (Ogun State); Ibadan (Oyo State); Akoko (Ondo State) and some parts of Edo and other states of the federation witnessed incidences of bank robberies, resulting to loss of lives and valuables, and prompting the banks to shut their doors to customers for weeks in those Â&#x2018;.x~jxÂ&#x2019;z~{Â&#x201D;Â&#x201D;Â&#x201C;Â&#x17D;}j}xÂ&#x20AC;ÂŞ On how to tackle the menace, Alawode said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be very Â&#x2019;},~Â&#x201C;|jÂŁz}Â?zÂ&#x17D;{jz}Â&#x201D;Â&#x2022;{Â&#x20AC;Â&#x20AC;}Â&#x2122;|xÂŁzj{z prevent bank robberies in Nigeria.

Central Bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesman, Mr. Ugochukwu Okorafor, in a chat with Saturday Newswatch recently said that cashless policy could not prevent bank robberies.

A sociologist, Mr. Ikechukwu Asiegbu, in a chat with Saturday Newswatch, said most of the cases of bank robberies could be traced to insiders, noting that some of the bank employees are not contented with their salaries. Asiegbu, who said that bank workers were expected to be people of high integrity and impeccable character; people who will not be tempted by depositorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cash in their vaults. He is disappointed that despite the huge wages that banks pay their employees, some still connive with bandits to rob their banks.

He also cited cases of bank robberies at some of the campuses of higher institutions where some students were alleged to have played active roles as witnessed some time at a religious university campus in one of the South-western states.

AGOA: 14 years on, Nigerians still learning the rope While Ghana, Mauritania and Gambia have immensely enjoyed the liberalised tariffs and duties on their exports to the United States of America (USA.) under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), ABIODUN AWOGBEMI reports that Nigeria is yet to meet most of the conditions of the trade acts, and therefore cannot not reap the available opportunities that the free trade provides.

Three years after intervention, Textile sector still moribund Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been three years since the Federal Government through the Bank of Industry (BoI) released N500 billion intervention funds to resuscitate the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moribund textile sector.

Ondo Events Centre: Dome doomed from onset Peter Dada, Akure

I

n January 2010, Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State initiated a project called International Cultural and Event Centre, in Alagbaka area of Akure, the state capital. Then, he had promised that the project would be completed and inaugurated in June of the same year.

Thus three years down the road, the project is yet to be completed let alone commissioned for the desired use, raising suspicion that it may become another abandoned project like the Akure-Oba Ile Airport Road project. Indigenes of Ondo State had actually applauded the governor when the foundation of the international event centre was laid, believing that the proposed onein-town architectural masterpiece would add to the beauty of their state capital, and also improve its economy while hosting national and international events. It would be recalled that the governor, in his speech at the foundation laying ceremony of the multi million naira project, emphasized the need for the construction of the event centre, christened Dome, saying that the project became imperative as a result of the unsuitability of the banquet hall, located within the {ÂĄxÂ&#x17D;{²Â&#x20AC;z{,~xz~{Â&#x201D;Â&#x2022;|xÂŻÂŞ According to the designer, the event centre will comprise a 2,500 capacity hall and other complimentary facilities such as Â&#x2018;z ¥xzÂ&#x20AC;jÂ&#x2018;zq{jx|zÂ&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;zÂ&#x2018;zÂ&#x201D;Â&#x2018;Â&#x20AC;Â&#x20AC;}ÂĄxz~Â&#x2018;zÂ&#x2022;Â&#x2018;ÂŤzj{z Â&#x2122;xzÂ&#x2122;Â&#x201C;}|jz{Â&#x17D;zÂ&#x2018;z|Â&#x2018;Â&#x2DC;xzxÂŻÂ&#x2022;Â&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x20AC;xz{Â?z|Â&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;zj{jÂ&#x2018;|}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;z 3.4 hectares.

In the same vein, the People Democratic

Dome Party (PDP), through its Director of Publicity, Ayo Fadaka, queried the rationale behind the construction of the Dome which he said cost the state government a whooping N15 billion instead of 1.5 billilon claimed by the government. The party also alleged that, apart from not following due process in the award of some contracts in the state since its }Â&#x17D;~xÂ&#x2022;j}{Â&#x17D;z}Â&#x17D;zxÂ&#x2122;Â&#x201C;Â&#x2018;Â&#x2013;zĂ&#x2021;Ă&#x2039;Ă&#x2039;Ă&#x201E;ÂŁzxÂŻx~Â&#x201C;j}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;z the dome project was wasteful as the immediate past government of Dr. Olusegun Agagu had already proposed a N75 million banquet hall for the state.

At that time, all the aural that surrounded the project has vanished, and the people of the state seemed to have gone beyond waiting for a perceived doomed dome project. Defending the failure of the state government to complete the project as scheduled despite the alleged huge fund made available to it, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Commissioner for Works, Engineer Gboye Adegbenro, said the project was delayed because of the failure on the part of the government to use suitable materials for the project.

He is a pioneer practitioner of environmental law in Nigeria, and was largely responsible for the formation of the Nigerian Environmental Law Society.

Looking back at the Nigerian legal system in the 70s in comparison with what it is now, Awogbade

Today, the structure of legal education is becoming inadequate. People are coming to the Bar without the kind of maturity required to look at issues, and dissect them in other to give   j   many disgruntled employers asking â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;where are the good lawyers?

igeria is no doubt one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest consumers of rice. The product is one of the main menu on the table of both the rich and the poor as well as the young and the old. However, it is gradually going out of the menu list of most Nigerians as a result of its high price in the past two years, in spite of claims by the government that the country }Â&#x20AC;zÂ&#x17D;{¢zÂ&#x20AC;x|Â?zÂ&#x20AC;Â&#x201C;,~}xÂ&#x17D;jz}Â&#x17D;zjqxzÂ&#x2022;{Â&#x2019;Â&#x201C;~j}{Â&#x17D;z{Â?zjqxz product. It is a fact that rice is grown in Ofada (Ogun State); Auchi (Edo State); Abakaliki (Ebonyi State); and others areas in the country. Mrs. Lucy, a wholesale dealer of the product, said a 50kg bag of Mama Gold brand, which was sold for about N7,000 in 2011 and 2012, went for N13, 000 in December last year. Ogwoligho, who claimed she buys rice at Iddo, Idumota and Isolo rice markets, stressed that the price of the product has been on a steady rise in the past three years. According to her, Nigerian businessmen are too exploitative. When rice was freely imported from Asian countries, the price of the product peaked at eight thousand naira for years, but now that our farmers and government claim that we have the capacity to produce enough to meet our local needs, the price has peaked at N13, 000 a bag. A major dealer of the product at Olodi area of Apapa, Lagos, Emeka Okafor, in a chat with Saturday Newswatch, disclosed that the price is on a steady rise in the past three years because {Â?zjqxzq}Â&#x2DC;qzjÂ&#x2018;}.Â&#x20AC;zjqxzÂ&#x2022;{Â&#x2019;Â&#x201C;~jzÂ&#x17D;{¢zÂ&#x2018;+Â&#x2018;~jÂŞz Okafor stressed that local growers misled the government to believing that the country is Â&#x20AC;x|Â?zÂ&#x20AC;Â&#x201C;,~}xÂ&#x17D;jz}Â&#x17D;zjqxzÂ&#x2022;{Â&#x2019;Â&#x201C;~j}{Â&#x17D;z{Â?z}~xÂŁz¢qxÂ&#x17D;z in actual fact, they cannot meet half of the local demand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our government is always in a haste to please local greedy businessmen, who are out to exploit the people.

It was also gathered that some local brands which contain small stones and sand are sold for about N11, 000 a bag in many parts of the country. Many Nigerians have however, berated the Ministry of Agriculture for creating an impression that the local rice growers have the capacity to produce enough to feed the country. The Secretary General of Rice Millers Importers and Distribution Association of Nigeria (RIMIDAN), Alhaji Shaibu Mohammed, while speaking to the media recently said that over 20 vessels of rice are stranded at sea due to the $190 duty per a bag of rice imposed on imported rice. Mohammed said the government policy has

led to a yearly loss of N300 billion to the country, and a gain of N200 billion for the Republic of Benin as result of rice smuggled into Nigeria. The RIMIDAN boss disclosed that only 100,000 tons of rice was imported into the country last year, adding that the Ministries of Finance and Agriculture are to blame for the high cost of rice in the past two years. Speaking to the press recently in Lagos, the Director General of Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), Muda Yusuf, disclosed that a bag of rice is sold at Republic of Benin for as low as N5, 000, adding that when smugglers bring the product into the country, they sell it at between N10, 000 and N13, 000 per bag, depending on the part of the country. Yusuf stressed that the price is on steady rise because the country lacks the capacity to meet local demand. This was even before the Â&#x2DC;{ÂĄxÂ&#x17D;Â&#x201D;xÂ&#x17D;jz}Â&#x201D;Â&#x2022;{Â&#x20AC;xÂ&#x2019;zq}Â&#x2DC;qzjÂ&#x2018;}.Â&#x20AC;zj{zÂ&#x2019;}Â&#x20AC;~{Â&#x201C;Â&#x2018;Â&#x2DC;xz Nigerians from importing the product, a development that resulted in the smuggling of the product across the border. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rice is sold in Republic of Benin between N4,000 and N6,000, but when the product gets into the country, it is sold for as much as N10,000 and N13,000 due to the amount smugglers have to pay the security agencies,â&#x20AC;?

He frowned at indiscriminate ban of products the country does not currently have capacity to contain. Stakeholders in the agricultural sector contended that government is too quick to satisfy the local businessmen to the detriment of the masses. They say that rice is a staple menu of most Nigerians, not just a product to be consumed only on special days as was the case in the 60s and late 70s. A stakeholder, Mr. Adamu Umaru, in a chat with our correspondent, said some government {,~}Â&#x2018;|Â&#x20AC;zqÂ&#x2018;ÂĄxzjqxz}Â&#x201D;Â&#x2022;xÂ&#x20AC;Â&#x20AC;}{Â&#x17D;zjqÂ&#x2018;jz}~xz}Â&#x20AC;zÂ&#x2018;z product that should be consume only on special days of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This government, by its action of banning Â&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;z}Â&#x17D;~xÂ&#x2018;Â&#x20AC;}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;zjÂ&#x2018;}.Â&#x20AC;z{Â?zÂ&#x2022;{Â&#x2019;Â&#x201C;~jÂ&#x20AC;zjqxzÂ&#x201D;Â&#x2018;Â&#x20AC;Â&#x20AC;xÂ&#x20AC;z patronise, is taking the country many years backward.

he Republic of Zimbabwe is a landlocked country located between the Zambezi and Limpopo rivers in southern Africa. It is bordered by South Africa to the south, Botswana to the southwest, Zambia to the northwest and Mozambique to the east. The capital is Harare. Zimbabwe achieved de jure sovereignty from the United Kingdom in April 1980, following 14 years existence as an unrecognised state under the conservative white minority government of Rhodesia, which unilaterally declared independence in 1965. }Â&#x201D;Â&#x2122;Â&#x2018;Â&#x2122;¢xzqÂ&#x2018;Â&#x20AC;zĂ&#x192;Ă&#x2C6;z{,~}Â&#x2018;|z languages, with English, Shona and Ndebele being most common. qxzÂ&#x2022;xÂ&#x20AC;xÂ&#x17D;jzjx}j{Â&#x2013;z¢Â&#x2018;Â&#x20AC;z Â&#x20AC;jz demarcated by Cecil Rhodesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; British South Africa Company during the 1890s, becoming a self-governing colony as Southern Rhodesia in 1923.

State regulation is costly to companies, just as starting or closing a business is slow and costly. In 2007, government spending was predicted to reach 67% of GDP.

The Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force released a report in June 2007 which estimated that 60% of Zimbabweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wildlife has died since 2000 due to poaching and deforestation. The report warns that the loss of life combined with widespread deforestation is potentially disastrous for the tourism industry. The ICT sector of Zimbabwe has been growing at a fast pace.

he Spokesman of the Seme Command of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Mr Ernest Olottah, has denied media reports that officers at the command were taking bribe from smugglers. Olottah said in Badagry, near Lagos, that the allegation published by a maritime journal was false. ``The reporter is working for smugglers who are trying to blackmail the command into softening its sustained stance against rice importation and smuggling through the land border,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. A maritime publication, ``Ships and Ports,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; on February 17 alleged that operatives of the command were ``collecting bribes of N2.5 million per truck of rice from smugglersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The publication alleged that the bribes were collected to allow the smugglers bring rice into Nigeria illegally. ``According to the report, an informant says that large trailers, which can carry between 60,000 and 72,000 tonnes of rice are now used to haul smuggled rice into the country from the Cotonou ports. ``The source of the reporter should have assisted the reporter to see this process of bribe giving and taking as well as the 70 trucks that bring rice into Lagos daily through Seme Border,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; the spokesman said. Olottah said that the NCS was working in line with the Federal Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ban on importation of rice. The spokesman said that the Area Comptroller, Mr Willy Egbudin, who is in charge of the Seme Command, did not only sustain the anti-smuggling tempo he met on the ground, but had increased it. ``This organised falsehood will not dampen our morale but this would only strengthen us in putting more efforts to stopping smuggling. ``The comptroller-general of customs has invested in our capacity development and logistics support. ``Therefore, we have no reason to fail in sustaining his zero tolerance on smuggling,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Olottah said. He, however, urged journalists to always abide by the ethics of their profession which involves truth, fairness and hearing all sides to a story before publication. ``For the reporters who claim to have access to criminals, the reporters should be patriotic enough to assist in the arrest of such criminals,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Olottah said.

However, there are allegations that the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land reform program badly damaged the sector, turning Zimbabwe into a net importer of food products. For the past ten years, International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropic ( ICRISAT) has been assisting Zimbabwean farmers to adopt conservation agriculture techniques, a sustainable method of farming that can help increase yields.

Investigation by Saturday Newswatch shows that the deputy governor is billed to announce his gubernatorial ambition sometime in May this year, posing what stakeholders see as supremacy war between him and Nyako for the 2015 contest, despite the odds that may threaten his ambition from within.

This is more so, considering that age is not on the side of some of them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; people like Professor Aminu, Tukur, Machika and former Governor Wilberforce Juta. The PDP which is the leading party in the political landscape of the state has suddenly turned into a minority party, creating a sort of panic and disturbance in the minds of its stakeholders who have hurriedly gone back to the drawing board to strategise on how it could reclaim its lost glory. One of the steps adopted by the APC to launch itself deep in the minds of Yola residents is horse trading and poster war approaches as all posters and billboards belonging to the PDP in strategic

Ngilari who is believed to be a political son to Professor Aminu, had earlier showed interest in the post of the number one citizen of the state when he walked out on Nyako, telling his boss that he would not follow him to the APC, despite the claim that a no love lost situation had ensued between the two political gladiators over time. Already, Nyako and Ngilari have drafted their foot soldiers to jqxzÂ&#x2122;Â&#x2018;+|xz x|Â&#x2019;ÂŁzÂĽxÂŻ}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;zÂ&#x201D;Â&#x201C;Â&#x20AC;~|xÂ&#x20AC;z towards the 2015 political conquest as they prepare their arsenals. Political pundits are of the view that the current political scenario playing out between the duo is a manifestation of the prolonged subtle and uneasy calm that the two politicians had kept close to their chests as some political pundits believed that Nyako may not be comfortable with his deputy succeeding him. Some politicians privy to developments between the two gladiators told Saturday Newswatch that the deputy governor, conscious of the fact that his boss may not support q}Â&#x20AC;zÂ&#x2018;Â&#x201D;Â&#x2122;}j}{Â&#x17D;zj{zÂ&#x2122;x~{Â&#x201D;xzjqxzÂ&#x17D;xÂŻjz governor, has for a long time

This belief was further substantiated by the allegation that the deputy governor has been endorsed by the President who has promised him that when the chips are down he would have a strong backing from above towards the Â&#x2019;},~Â&#x201C;|j}xÂ&#x20AC;zÂ&#x2018;qxÂ&#x2018;Â&#x2019;ÂŞ The subtle move of the deputy governor to seek the support of the presidency to further his ambition Â&#x201D;Â&#x2018;Â&#x2013;zÂ&#x2122;xz¡Â&#x201C;Â&#x20AC;j} xÂ&#x2019;z}Â&#x17D;zÂĄ}x¢z{Â?zjqxz established tradition between governors and their deputies since the inception of the current Â&#x2019;xÂ&#x201D;{~Â&#x2018;j}~zxÂŻÂ&#x2022;x}Â&#x201D;xÂ&#x17D;jÂŞ Many are quick to say that the decision of Ngilari to align with the presidency ab initio }Â&#x20AC;zÂ&#x2018;z¢}+Â&#x2013;z{Â&#x17D;xz as he has since warmed his way into the heart of President Jonathan and has cleared much ground as the President is believed to be in support of his candidature. The above assumptions were reached based on two recent developments. One of them was the meeting that took place between the Minister of Women .Â&#x2018;}Â&#x20AC;ÂŁz Â&#x2018;¡}Â&#x2018;zÂ&#x2018;}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2018;Â&#x2122;zÂ&#x2018;}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2018;ÂŁz when she was delegated by the presidency to visit the state few days before the President visited it. During one of the closed-door sessions the minister had with the deputy governor, she was alleged to have told him that the presidency is solidly behind him, assuring that his loyalty to the President could not be in vain; more so, considering the xÂŻÂ&#x2022;x}xÂ&#x17D;~xzqxzÂ&#x201D;Â&#x201C;Â&#x20AC;jzqÂ&#x2018;ÂĄxzÂ&#x2DC;Â&#x2018;jqxxÂ&#x2019;z as a two-term deputy governor.

But despite the salvos and the counter-salvos being hurled about by supporters of the two gladiators, one issue that remains glaring is that the 2015governorship contest in the state is one between the APC and the PDP being led by the governor and his deputy. One advantage that Nyako seems to have over his deputy is that as the leader of the APC, he has succeeded in bringing harmony between the fractious elements that constituted the party and with that feat the APC is now seen as one strong and indivisible party. The APC has displayed maturity in handling its internal crisis and ~{Â&#x17D;Â&#x20AC;j}jÂ&#x201C;jxÂ&#x2019;zjqxzÂ&#x20AC;jÂ&#x2018;jx²Â&#x20AC;z}Â&#x17D;jx}Â&#x201D;z ~{Â&#x201D;Â&#x201D;}+xxz¢}jq{Â&#x201C;jzÂ&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2013;zÂ&#x2018;Â&#x17D;~{Â&#x201C;z among the various blocs that make up the merger arrangement. They were fairly represented during a grand occasion at the Dougirei Government House where the leaders of the various blocs, including General Marwa, Engr. Gundiri, Hajiya Fatima Balla and a host of other party stalwarts and stakeholders conceded the leadership of the party to Governor Nyako. But unlike Governor Nyako, his deputy is faced with the predicament of being saddled with a herculean task of dealing with very strong party stakeholders who are not likely to be comfortable with his emergence as the candidate of the party. Unlike Nyako who was able to bring all the aggrieved party stalwarts to a round table, it will be a herculean task for the deputy governor to get the PDP Continued on Page 81

Kaduna 2015: Forces againstYeroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return

Baba Negedu, Kaduna

T

hough yet to declare interest in retaining his present position beyond 2015, the body language, torrents of posters from political allies and comments by political aides suggest that Governor Mukhtar Yero of Kaduna State wants to return to the Government House. It is however confusing as he keeps Â&#x201D;Â&#x201C;Â&#x201D;z{ÂĄxzjqxzÂ&#x201D;Â&#x2018;+xÂŁzÂ&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;z would not dissuade any of his foot soldiers from their subtle campaigns. However as the incumbent, his chances of clinching the highest {,~xz}Â&#x17D;zjqxzÂ&#x20AC;jÂ&#x2018;jxÂŁz}Â?zxÂĄxÂ&#x17D;jÂ&#x201C;Â&#x2018;||Â&#x2013;z he decides to throw his hat into the ring is bright but that does not mean there are no obstacles as recent political events in the state have revealed. Chief among them will be the wave of discontent in the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a development that has led to mass exodus of its members to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC). Governor Yero, a young politician who has never contested election, at least on the political turf, will not only have to learn fast, but also has a limited time to convince stakeholders and citizens alike that he meant well for them and that he has what it takes to deliver the goods because he was the deputy to the late Governor Ibrahim Yakowa who Â&#x2019;}xÂ&#x2019;z}Â&#x17D;z{,~xÂŞ Just like his boss, Vice President Namadi Sambo, Yero, during the last election, lost his polling unit, ward and local government to the opposition Congress for Progressive Change (CPC). With this type of track record, many in the state are wondering how he hopes to spring surprises that will change his unenviable record and retain for his party the fortunes in the state. Consequently, political pundits have started touting that major stakeholders in the state may have decided dumping Governor Yero for an experienced politician that could Â&#x2DC;}ÂĄxzjqxz{Â&#x2022;Â&#x2022;{Â&#x20AC;}j}{Â&#x17D;zÂ&#x2018;z Â&#x2DC;qjzÂ?{z}jz money. Apart from the fact that critics are saying the governor did not have the requisite experience to win election, there are also indications that the PDP needs drastic measures to pull any upset in the coming polls, following what is presently on ground in the state. As Saturday Newswatch gathered, many of those that make things happen in the ruling party including their former state chairman Alhaji Yaro Makama, has dumped the party for the opposition and vowed to make sure that the {Â&#x2022;Â&#x2022;{Â&#x20AC;}j}{Â&#x17D;zÂ&#x2022;{ÂĄxÂ&#x20AC;z}jÂ&#x20AC;zÂ&#x201D;x+|xzÂ&#x2018;jz the polls. In one of his outings, the former PDP strong man was quoted as saying that those in the PDP that said the new decampees have no political clout should wait and see in 2015 as he would not join a party that would not deliver,

adding that the party has failed to deliver the goods. It is this development, sources in the state say, that is causing the powers that be sleepless nights - a development that has made many to suggest that the present governor should be prevailed upon to step aside. This development, according to those close to the seat of power in the state, said is already causing acrimony between Vice President Sambo and Governor Yero who sources said has made up his mind to test his popularity at the polls irrespective of what the party stakeholders think. Saturday Newswatch gathered in Kaduna that it is the foot soldiers of Governor Yeroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s xÂ&#x201D;{ÂĄÂ&#x2018;|zjqÂ&#x2018;jzÂ&#x2018;xzÂĽÂ&#x2013;}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;zjqxzÂŤ}jxz of his succeeding Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in June when his tenure ends. That is why the government too has vehemently continued to deny the involvement or interest of the governor in the banking sectorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top job. In one of its numerous denials, Yero had said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has become imperative for us to once again dispel the erroneous and misleading rumour connectingâ&#x20AC;? him with the soon-to-be-vacant position of governor of the CBN. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We may have ignored this insinuation as another handiwork of mischief makers; but it is pertinent to put the record straight in the interest of providing accurate information to the good people of Kaduna State and beyond, to save them from falling gullible to falsehood. We wish to state once more that the governor is at this period completely devoted to delivering democracy dividends to the people of Kaduna State and justifying the mandate given to his administration by the people.â&#x20AC;? The statement signed by his media aide continued: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The governor has no interest in taking up appointment at the CBN or any other institution. Alhaji Ramalan Yero remains ~{Â&#x201D;Â&#x201D;}+xÂ&#x2019;zÂ&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;zÂ?{~Â&#x201C;Â&#x20AC;xÂ&#x2019;zj{z providing purposeful leadership that will bring about rapid transformation of Kaduna State. His preoccupation at the moment is how to deliver on the promises that he made to the people by completing all ongoing projects and initiating new ones that would in the shortest possible time improve the overall living conditions of the entire people of Kaduna State.â&#x20AC;? The statement concluded by saying that â&#x20AC;&#x153;on the question of the 2015 election, as a staunch respecter of the rule of law, Governor Yero believes it is not yet time to declare interest in contesting the election. However, it is pertinent to clarify that His Excellency reserves the constitutional right to contest for election as governor of Kaduna State come 2015 and will make his decision known at the right time and in accordance with provisions of the Electoral Act (2010) as amended. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The governor remains resolute in his principle of

Many said for political reasons the governor should have kept them on board in one form or the other but that as they say, that is now history. It is now the responsibility of Governor Yeroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spin doctors to show that they have what it takes to deliver the goods.

The former deputy governor said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the outset, the APC is leaving no one in doubt of the fact that its emergence in the Nigerian political space is to bring change to Nigeria and Africa through progressive, people-oriented and purposeful leadership.

But Governor Yero and his political disciples will also be genuinely worried about the new wave of opposition spirit moving through the southern Kaduna zone.

But how the PDP foot soldiers in the area perfect their act before the polls and the level of government presence will go a long way to determine on whose side the pendulum would swing. There were also indications that Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi may join the fray soon. He is well known for his grassroots mobilisation skills.

Ajimobi fiddling with second term jinx Olusakin Babalola, Ibadan

Like in any ÂĄxÂ&#x17D;jÂ&#x201C;xÂŁzqÂ&#x201C;Â&#x201D;Â&#x2018;Â&#x17D;zÂ&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;z Â&#x17D;Â&#x2018;Â&#x17D;~}Â&#x2018;|z resources were invested in the political adventure.

Again, it was a tug of war in 2011 as well before he was picked as the gubernatorial candidate to run against the then incumbent Governor Adebayo Alao-Akala who enjoyed incumbency factor and Senator Rashidi Adewolu Ladoja, a one-time governor of the state. Only pretenders would refuse to admit the relevance of the Ibadan factor in Oyo State politics since the seventies. Another hypothesis is the claim that Ibadan people do not serve a single person the second time. But the theory is being worked upon to be changed as Daltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s atomic theories ¢xxz|Â&#x2018;jxzÂ&#x201D;{Â&#x2019;} xÂ&#x2019;z}Â&#x17D;zÂ&#x201D;{Â&#x2019;xÂ&#x17D;z chemistry.

A reversal of this trend could be the only source of strength to usher Ajimobi back to power in 2015 if he works on those lapses to his own electoral advantage. Some of those negative forces against the former governor included the protracted crisis in his party, namely the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) where jqxz|xÂ&#x2018;Â&#x2019;xÂ&#x20AC;zÂ?{Â&#x201C;Â&#x2DC;qjzj{z Â&#x17D;}Â&#x20AC;qzÂ&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;z embarked on protests votes; the Ibadan solidarity of replacing an outsider with a son of the soil; and the great blunder of Alao-Akala and his betrayal by his fellow party men. Interestingly, these factors, jq{Â&#x201C;Â&#x2DC;qz}Â&#x17D;zÂ&#x2018;zÂ&#x20AC;xxÂ&#x201D;}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;|Â&#x2013;zÂ&#x2019;}.xxÂ&#x17D;jz Â?{Â&#x201D;ÂŁzÂ&#x2018;xzÂ&#x2018;|Â&#x20AC;{z¢Â&#x2018;}j}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;zj{zÂ&#x20AC;~Â&#x201C;+|xz the aspiration of Ajimobi unless he heeds the warning against the â&#x20AC;?ides of Marchâ&#x20AC;? which Julius Caesar turned down to his peril as he felt jqÂ&#x2018;jzϢqÂ&#x2018;jzj{Â&#x201C;~qxÂ&#x20AC;zq}Â&#x201D;z Â&#x20AC;jzÂ&#x201D;Â&#x201C;Â&#x20AC;jz be last served.â&#x20AC;?

The urban renewal programme of the governor is the talk of the town in many parts of the country, with positive and negative comments on it. While a group argued that its execution was bad because â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;foreignersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; were made to execute the job, the government and its spokesmen faulted that allegation.

He is one of the newly-sworn in commissioners. Besides, his former deputy governorship candidate in 2011, Deaconess C.

stakeholders to back him in the coming onslaught. It is an established fact that major stakeholders of the PDP are either having direct ambition of governing the state or have proxies who they expect to succeed Nyako. For instance, despite his ouster as the PDP chairman, Tukur is said not to rest on his oars at ensuring that his son, Barrister Awwal Tukur becomes the next governor of the state. Similarly, the former link man of the PDP, Professor Aminu, has thrown his weight behind Ngalari with a second option that if he fails, his closest political Godson, Dr. Idi Hong, would succeed Nyako. But Dr. Ardo has told his political associates that he would contest against anybody at the PDP primary to ensure that he becomes the next occupier of the Dougirie Government House, in Yola. With the subsisting situation, many political pundits believe that }jz¢{Â&#x201C;|Â&#x2019;zÂ&#x2122;xzÂ&#x2019;},~Â&#x201C;|jzÂ?{zjqxzÂ&#x2019;xÂ&#x2022;Â&#x201C;jÂ&#x2013;z governor to make much success in bringing these powerful stalwarts to a round table especially in convincing them to stake their own political interests in favour of his. Findings by this reporter revealed that very soon the deputy governor would announce his gubernatorial ambition, which would square him up against Governor Nyako for the 2015 governorship contest. Although Governor Nyako

has served out his two terms, it is of interest to him to contribute towards who becomes the next {~~Â&#x201C;Â&#x2022;}xz{Â?zjqxzÂ&#x20AC;jÂ&#x2018;jx²Â&#x20AC;zÂ&#x2022;|Â&#x201C;Â&#x201D;z{,~xz especially one who shares the same vision with him and could consolidate on he developmental strides he initiated.

As a result, it has become more expedient for him to actively participate in the process that will lead to the emergence of his successor. It may be recalled that the governor, on many occasions, has been accused by his political adversaries of massive corruption which resulted in the low performance of his administration, according to his political adversaries. Such accusations came from Professor Aminu. Although, the governor has variously repudiated the submissions, saying that it was because he has refused to share the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resources among them. The question on the lips of many is: Can Nyako successfully pave the way for the smooth coming of his successor?

At present, political pundits believe that things are no longer at ease in the state chapter of the party though not as serious as that of the Ogun State chapter.

APC: PDP members resort to clandestine registrations in Ebonyi â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Chaka Nweze Mr. Chaka Nweze used to be a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and also Chairman of Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State on the platform of the PDP. But before the 2011 general elections, he left the party for the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) which later fused into the All Progressives Congress (APC) of which he is the interim secretary in the state. In this interview with KENNETH OFOMA, Nweze recounts the success and challenges of the party, noting that despite calculated attempts by the ruling PDP to thwart the membership registration of the APC, many Ebonyi people still trooped out to register with the party, vowing that the PDP government would be uprooted in the state in 2015.

Interview Solution to insecurity is prayer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Prophet Ayeni Prophet J. Olu Ayeni is the General Overseer of Voice of Salvation Evangelical Ministry (VOSEM) at Ketu, Lagos. In this interview with AJIBADE ALABI, he spoke on the origin of his ministry, the panacea to the Boko Haram menace as well as many other issues. Excerpts

Y

our church bears a name that has a semblance to late Obadareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s church. Is there a connection? Baba Obadare was my father. He was a role model for me, apart from the fact that I have Christ Apostolic Church background. Sir, how did you receive your call? My call did not come easy. That was because I hated this kind of job. I had been privileged to go most places with my father who was a pastor and xÂŻÂ&#x2022;x}xÂ&#x17D;~xÂ&#x2019;zÂ&#x2018;||zjqxzÂ&#x20AC;Â&#x201C;.x}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;Â&#x20AC;zÂ&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;zÂ&#x20AC;q{jz comings of being a pastor. My father never sleeps until 4am every day in the name of preparing sermon and so on. I hated that kind of job. At his death, I refused to heed to the call until one early morning while I was returning from programme, I coughed out blood. I was referred to Akure to treat the Â&#x2019;}Â&#x20AC;xÂ&#x2018;Â&#x20AC;xzÂ&#x2018;Â?jxzjqxz Â&#x20AC;jz¢{Â&#x201D;Â&#x2018;Â&#x17D;z z¢Â&#x2018;Â&#x20AC;z introduced to could not do anything. I was sternly warned that if I failed to go to Akure, I would die and Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work would continue. So I went.            anything? qxz Â&#x20AC;jzjq}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;zÂ&#x20AC;qxzÂ&#x2018;Â&#x20AC;ÂŤxÂ&#x2019;zÂ&#x201D;xz¢Â&#x2018;Â&#x20AC;z}Â?z z had tuberculosis. The question drew my laughter as I know I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drink, smoke nor womanise. In fact, I was a virgin before I got married and I make bold to say that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know any other woman except my wife. So what happened at Akure? Where I was being treated, I continued to hear strange voices |Â&#x2018;Â&#x201C;Â&#x2DC;q}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;zÂ&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;zÂ&#x20AC;jÂ&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;xz Â&#x2DC;Â&#x201C;xÂ&#x20AC;zÂ&#x201D;{ÂĄ}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;z about. Everybody thought I was going crazy and might die. One day, I heard a voice which said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I told you I need you, but you are running, are you ready to do my work now or to die.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I had no choice but to accept, but not before telling God that I am not ready j{zÂ&#x20AC;Â&#x201C;.xzjqxz¢Â&#x2018;Â&#x2013;zÂ&#x201D;Â&#x2013;zÂ?Â&#x2018;jqxzÂ&#x20AC;Â&#x201C;.xxÂ&#x2019;ÂŞz

xzÂ&#x2018;Â&#x20AC;Â&#x20AC;Â&#x201C;xÂ&#x2019;zÂ&#x201D;xzjqÂ&#x2018;jz z¢}||zÂ&#x17D;{jzÂ&#x20AC;Â&#x201C;.xÂŞz When I returned home afterwards, a lot of people avoided me, thinking I was a ghost. Now that you have answered the call, what happened? One day, I revealed a vision I saw

of someone to him, and when the revelation came to past, the man came back to express his appreciation. I was even surprised that what I told him came to past. At a time, that man began to refer people to me, calling me the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;man at Ketuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. It got to a stage that every morning before I wake up, a lot of people would have gathered waiting for me. It was becoming embarrassing, then one day, my landlord suggested I should tell anybody that wishes to see Â&#x201D;xzj{z~Â&#x2018;||z{Â&#x17D;zÂ&#x2018;z}Â&#x2019;Â&#x2018;Â&#x2013;ÂŞzqxz Â&#x20AC;jz}Â&#x2019;Â&#x2018;Â&#x2013;z was something else as the number of people that came doubled the number that had ever come. The Baba was benevolent enough to give me a place to host them and even suggested I Â&#x20AC;jÂ&#x2018;jxÂ&#x2019;z~{||x~j}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;z{.x}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;zÂ?{Â&#x201D;zjqxz congregation. Did you? Â?z~{Â&#x201C;Â&#x20AC;xz zÂ&#x2019;}Â&#x2019;ÂŞzÂ&#x17D;zjqxz Â&#x20AC;jzÂ&#x2019;Â&#x2018;Â&#x2013;ÂŁz¢xz got N40, 000. Then the landlord advised to rent a congregating place. I was then introduced to a man who owns a building, he promised to accommodate me only if I can host my congregation in the evenings, as according to him, the place was also used as school. I agreed. He further advised that I should wait for the man that will issue a receipt for the space. While I waited, a group of artisans around engaged in a dialogue after praying for one of them. A carpenter among them was taken in at the manner I released the words, and demanded to know when I was due to return. Then I told him my mission there and everything that has transpired. Surprisingly, he took me to the National Secretariat for Carpenters in Lagos, and showed me a large hall with chairs and tables. That was exactly what I was looking for, and when he asked me if I could use it since they use it only once in a month, I was overwhelmed with joy. That is how God works; here was I waiting to pay for a place, but God has other plans. There are pastors who are married to more than one wife unlike you. What do you say to that? You said some pastors have more than one wife. The question is, did God truly call them? Let me tell you

Ayeni

something, if really you hear from God, you will not commit adultery. The bible frowns at divorce for whatever reason except adultery. It is therefore, obvious that God will not allow anyone to have two wives. It is not the will of God for any man to have two wives. What is our message to people if we cannot manage ourselves? What was your job before becoming a pastor? I was in form 5 in 1986 when my father died, and there was this deacon in our church who sells spare parts. He was reputed to have built a house within two years on that job, so my people seconded me to him with the impression that I could build within the same space of time. So I joined him at ijebu-Ode, and later came to Lagos where my brother introduced me to a man at Owode Onirin. I was at Owode Onorin for 13 years. Are you planning a crusade as most people are fervently doing these days? I intend to host a crusade with the intent of raising fund. There is something you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do outside. By the grace of God, we will begin a crusade Â&#x2122;Â&#x2013;zxÂ&#x2122;Â&#x201C;Â&#x2018;Â&#x2013;zĂ&#x2021;Ă&#x160;ÂŁzÂ&#x2018;Â&#x17D;Â&#x2019;z}jz}Â&#x20AC;zÂŤ}~ÂŤ}Â&#x17D;Â&#x2DC;z{.z from Agric, Ikorodu. Do you have any comment as regards the state of the nation, especially the Boko Haram scourge? It is unfortunate that there is nothing anybody can do about Boko Haram,

One day, I heard a voice which said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I told you I need you, but you are running, are you ready to do my work now or to die.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I had no choice but to accept, but not before telling God that I am not ready to suffer the way my father suffered

I mean nobody can stop it. The only solution to the menace is recognition by our rulers that there are prophets in this country. Did you know that all our leaders have prophets who do not tell them the truth because they want to remain in the good book of the ruler? A friend of mine suggested that real men of God should be invited and compelled to pray, and when they do in agony God will hear their prayers, and there will be solution.

Do we really want to win the war against Boko Haram?

T

his country of ours is very intriguing. Many times I get thoroughly confounded by our double speak. It is becoming clearer to me why things that are simple and straight forward - or should be so - end up becoming complex and convoluted in our nation. Somehow, every issue or matter has to be viewed from narrow ethnic, religious or political prisms, and then  ]   *     that ordinarily looks white may end up being described as grey or colourless, not because of any physiological or pathological malfunctioning of the eyes of the viewers, but largely because of their ethnic or political bias. When the Boko Haram group came unto national consciousness with their weekly raiding of worship centres in the North East of Nigeria, some people said nothing; they did not condemn their activities, because    ]    ship centres and those killed came from a ]      *$   the UN Plaza and Police HQ in Abuja and no word came from them. They bombed the St Theresaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church in Madala on Christmas Day but they said nothing. But when the insurgents bombed Kano and killed many people including Christians and Muslims, they began to speak. Now that their own have been touched, it is time to condemn Boko Haram. Haba! Why did they keep quiet all this while? For a long time, this writer and many other   #  ] actions against these criminals and vandals who shed innocent blood without any qualm. Many of us felt that the government was treating the terrorists with kid gloves. Then the government responded by declaring State of Emergency in three North eastern states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa. This same group of elders stood against it and complained and criticised and tried all they could to stop it. Then they suggested dialogue and amnesty, and when the government listened and tried to set up a committee to try that option, this group of elders led by Prof. Ango Abdullahi began to criticise yet could not give any helping hand to bring the leaders of the Boko Haram to the table. And come to think of it, some of them were named by Boko Haram as acceptable contact persons. Eventually the     ]  the Federal Government. Subsequently, following from the intensi       group was contained in the far northern fringes of the troubled zone. What did we get from these elders? Rather than commend the work of the military, Ango Abdullahi and his group threatened to take the former Chief of 9]  %   !  `tice. For doing what? one may ask. This was like a ploy to demoralise the Army leadership and discourage them from continuing the offensive against the terrorists. But thank God, the military was not demoralised. Because       9} 9 "    !  Â&#x192; ]Â&#x201E;  informing a grateful nation that they would

rout these criminals by the end of April this year. As typical, the elders failed to applaud or even encourage the military while many patriots were elated at the prospect of seeing this war come to an end. And last week, with incessant killing of hapless citizens of Nigeria in the villages of Borno State, there has been a cacophony of        and demoralise not only the security forces but most patriots. Some of these elders who do not want the military to operate or who wish to constrain their operational abilities have joined in blaming the military for not doing enough. The choir master this time is Governor Shettima of Borno State who did not only assert that the Boko Haram insurgents were better equipped than our military forces, in addition to being better motivated, but concluded that we could never win the war! What an assertion! So my question is: what are we to do? Surrender and withdraw our military forces so that Boko Haram and their sponsors and allies will overrun the nation and establish their kind of government? Some people say Governor Shettima spoke the truth. I ask, truth to who? To Boko Haram? What more do they need to be motivated than for a gover   ! &   State, to declare in the open that we cannot win the war against Boko Haram. If he must tell the truth, Shettima should have told it to the President whom he had just gone to see. If he could not realise the security implication of that statement in the open, then his maturity as a state governor is called to question. Others say he spoke out of desperation and  *"%      did not mean what he said. His response to  [   Â&#x20AC;]    his statement was patently disappointing. He chose to attack the Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aide who, in my opinion, was only trying to refute his damaging assertion that our military is inferior to the band of murderers who have only been successful in causing mayhem because they have enjoyed overt and covert support of some powerful persons including some of

It looks to me that some well connected people, many with heavy political weight and ready access to the media, do not want this war to be won or even to end. They seem to see it as a political {  Federal Government by projecting it as weak and incapable of protecting Nigerians

defeating Boko Haram. I have no problem          President or his government in their struggle for power, as this seems to be part of the political game; but doing so with the lives of innocent and defenceless Nigerians is most distasteful. It is a pity that in this country, we cannot stand up as a nation and look at issues on their merit without ethnic and or political considerations. But on this war being waged by Boko Haram, we must stand together. All Nigerians, especially the political leaders, the traditional leaders, the military and security leaders, the business leaders, the civil society, particularly the media, must stand up as one and condemn in unequivocal terms the war which some deranged people and their        are waging against our country without any Q * Thank God that General Muhammadu Buhari who, all along, seemed nonchalant          '    edge, since Boko Haram assumed centre stage after the 2011 elections - issued a statement condemning their activities. This is most welcome, and represents the approach I am campaigning for. I pray that other elders who have been making statements to show that they are unconcerned or making statements that could be construed to be supportive of the miscreants should emulate this fairly belated but better-than- never action of General Buhari. Secondly, we must also genuinely sup    Â&#x20AC;]     malady to a speedy end. I believe that there is so much that our northern governors can do if they decide to support the Federal Government to bring this matter to a close. It is not enough to issue empty statements or unforceable declarations. Even if Boko Haram is supported by any other external organ, the combined muscle of the 19 northern governors can go a long way to halting this dastardly insurgency. I will like to appeal to the Arewa Consultative Forum, The Arewa Elders Council and all the groups that are     <  > to bury all their political hatchets and rally round the government. Boko Haram cannot defeat us if we are united in words and ac *& <  >   motivate the marauders. Third and lastly, the security forces must be given all the logistic support needed to rout these bands of murderers. And when such resources are provided, they must be prudently applied to the project at hand exclusively. I trust that what Air Marshall Alex Badeh said that the military will do, they will do. That is to bring this insurgency to an end by April this year. I really want us to win this war. And I am asking all lovers of humanity and  # <{   >  with me.
