E

mir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, is dead - nine days to his 84th birthday. He reportedly passed on in the early hours of yesterday, less than one month after returning from a medical trip to London.    

  of his death came from the Kano Emirate Council, through Alhaji Mahe Bashir, Walin Kano. Expectedly, Bashir promptly announced that Bayero’s funeral would be conducted same day by 4.00pm, at Kofar Kudu, Kano. And yesterday evening, in keeping with Islamic injunction, his remains were laid to rest in Nassarawa, his ancestral home in the state, after Jumat prayers. Following the emir’s death, senior Emirate Council members, traditional and religious leaders,        cials and businessmen from across the country had begun to converge on the palace from around noon yesterday. Tight security measures were promptly put in place for the safety of expected mourners. >>Continued on Pages 2 & 3

ollowing the ceaseless killings of innocent citizens by Boko Haram insurgents particularly in the northeastern part of the country, the Christians and Muslims Youth Forum (CMYF) has called on retired military Generals from the region to intervene. The group, which called on retired Generals Muhammadu Buhari, Ibrahim Babangida and T.Y. Danjuma to assemble other northern leaders to brainstorm

    

on how to safeguard the region and Nigeria from the menace of terror, charged General Yakubu Gowon (rtd) to lead the team. The group believes that the northern elders have the capacity to persuade the insurgents. National President of CMYF, Yusuf Ibrahim, made the call yesterday at a press conference organised in Abuja to address the security situation in the country.

“We call on all retired military Generals from the North to be led by Gen. Yakubu Gowon, Gen. Buhari, Gen. Babangida and Gen. T.Y. Danjuma to assemble other gallant men to brainstorm on how to safeguard the northern region and Nigeria from terrorists. “Why we call on the northern elders is because if you say you are not party to the situation, why do you provide your land

    should be played? If all these people contribute their quotas, as we know that they have the capacity to curtail this situation, Nigeria will be at rest. By the          we will equally go to the other regions,� he said. He stressed that all former security personnel from the zone should also follow suit with their brilliant contributions.

Cover Tambuwal morns Bayero

S

peaker, House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, has described the passing away of the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero, as a monumental loss to the entire country, saying he received the news of his demise with great sense of sadness. In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and     Imam, Tambuwal described the deceased as a disciplinarian who led an exemplary life characterised by honesty, fairness, generosity and service to God and humanity. He said the late Emir treasured knowledge and the search for knowledge. “Under his long and glorious reign, Kano witnessed

unprecedented boom in all spheres of human endeavour. It’s eminent status as a trading point and centre of commerce in sub-Saharan Africa        enhanced. “The people of Kano and indeed all Nigerians will miss his advice and reassuring presence. It is gratifying, however, that he has left behind towering legacies for posterity and this should serve as comforting to us all,� Tambuwal added. While extending his condolences to the Kano Emirate and the State government, the Speaker prayed to Almighty Allah to grant his immediate family the fortitude to bear the loss.

I lost a father, says Atiku Saminu Ibrahim, Abuja

F

ormer Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, said he lost a father in the Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero, who died yesterday in Kano. In a personal tribute to Bayero in Abuja, Alhaji Atiku said his relationship with the late Emir was like a father and his favorite son spanning over three decades. A visibly pained Atiku said he knew that death was coming (like it would for every mortal), but not in agony and humiliation because he (Bayero) did not deserve it. He said Bayero was not only loyal to his people in his immediate domain, but to Nigeria and humanity as a whole. According to Atiku, the late Bayero was a pious, humble, upright and honest man whose integrity was unparalleled, saying: “his death has robbed the nation of a noble crusader of unity, tolerance and peaceful coexistence. The former Vice President recalled that promoting unity and tolerance was one of Bayero’s greatest legacies. He maintained that Nigeria has lost a crusader for peace, stability and unity at a time his services were still

being needed by the country, stressing that Bayero who celebrated his 50th Anniversary on the throne in June last year, was a rare leader of enviable and vast wisdom. He also recalled the sig        late emir to sustaining the unity of Nigeria during the 1966 political crisis, a role that earned him the respect of the now deceased Ikemba Nnewi, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegu Ojukwu. Atiku said the respect Ojukwu had for Bayero, a quintessential bridge-build      sage about the role he played in saving Nigeria from the brink of disaster. Apart from Bayero’s commitment to unity, Atiku praised the late monarch’s ability to rule over a vast, complex, heterogeneous, and cosmopolitan state like Kano without losing his sanity, a quality he said was rare among average leaders. He extolled the late Bayero’s integrity and his remarkable character, adding that he associated himself with the progress and development of his people even as he condoled with the family, the people and the government of Kano State over the death.

Kwara Gov also mourns too

K

wara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, described the death of Alhaji Ado Abdullahi Bayero as a national loss of unimaginable proportion, saying the deceased represented       loved and respected traditional rulers of modern Nigeria. Governor Ahmed, who made this remark in a condolence message issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Alhaji Abdulwahab Oba, said Bayero added colour and penache to the traditional institution of not only Kano Emirate,

Northern Nigeria but the country as a whole through his candour and statesmanship. “As a Nigerian who lived and worked in Kano for many years, I recall that the reign of Alhaji Ado Bayero as the Emir of Kano deepened the values of the Emirate as the Centre of Commerce in West Africa,� the governor said. Ahmed extended his condolences to the Kano Emirate Council and Kano State Government on the death, with a prayer that Allah grants them the fortitude to bear the loss and the deceased Aljanat Fridaous.

Born on June 15, 1930 in Gidan Rumfa, the late Bayero was corronated in 1963 as the 13th Emir of Kano, succeeding Sanusi Abdullahi Bayero, and reigned for over 50 years. He was the son of Abdullahi Bayero Dan Muhhamad Abbas, and the 13th Fulani Emir since the Fulani war of Usman Dan Fodio. He was renowned for his abundant wealth through stock market investments and large scale

agricultural entrepreneurship both locally and internationally. His father - Abdullahi Bayero – reigned as Emir for 27 years. Muhammadu Sanusi,

who was Ado Bayero’s half brother, succeeded his father and ruled from 1953-1963. Following his dethronement in 1963, Muhammadu Inuwa ascended the throne and ruled

for only three months. The late Bayero studied the Qur’an and later attended the Kano Middle School, and

P

resident Goodluck Jonathan yesterday, expressed sadness and a feeling of great national loss on the passing away of the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Ado Bayero. President Jonathan, on behalf of the Federal Government, commiserated with the late Emir’s family and the people of Kano State over whom the departed Emir presided illustriously as traditional ruler for more than half a century. The President’s condolence was contained in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Reuben

Abati. According to the statement: “The President joins them in mourning the monarch whose uncommon leadership qualities and evident faith in the peace, unity, progress, and prosperity of Nigeria combined to make him one of the most respected traditional rulers in the country during his long and very successful reign. “President Jonathan believes that Alhaji Ado Bayero will always be remembered and honoured by the people of Kano and all Nigerians for his immense wisdom and competence as a traditional ruler, as well as for using his exalted throne to build bridges

Nigerians especially the present crop of leaders to emulate the virtues of patriotism, philanthrop, honesty and good leadership quality which the late Bayero epitomised. He sympathized with the government and people of Kano State, especially the bereaved family, over the demise of the monarch even as he told them to take solace in the fact that late Bayero lived a successful and truly accomplished life worthy of emulation.

NGE condemns newspaper seizure by military in Abuja, Edo, Osun, Oyo Ayodele Olalere, Cyril Mbah, ThankGod Ofoelue, Michael Olanrewaju and Olusakin Babalola

T

he Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE), yesterday, condemned     //  by the military in Abuja, Benin, Osogbo and Ibadan yesterday. Several copies of the Leadership and the Daily Trust  //      by military men and destroyed before vendors could circulate or distribute them to the public at the Area 1 newspaper distribution centre in Abuja. No reasons were given for the seizure. Eyewitnesses said a combined team of soldiers and policemen stopped vendors and searched newspaper collection as well as sales locations and stands, removing the Leadership and Daily Trust wherever they were displayed yesterday morning before workers had the opportunity to read them. The same development was also reported in Benin, Edo State where some military personnel besieged the secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) and newsstands and seized consignments of The Nation, Daily Trust and Leadership newspapers. The stern-looking soldiers had arrived initially in mufti, before military vans were seen with over 15 soldiers in uniform. The soldiers searched all vehicles driving into the secretariat and removed newspapers consignments meant for cifculation in Edo State. Correspondents of the    //   learnt of the development, stayed away from the secretariat till late in the afternoon when the soldiers had left. Likewise in Ibadan, Oyo State, where no fewer than 25 soldiers impounded two circulation vehicles meant to distribute newspapers for

public consumption in the city and its environs. Newspapers in the impounded vehicles included Daily Newswatch, National Mirror, Vanguard and The Nation.

Earlier, the circulation driver of The Nation newspaper was reportedly whisked away to the Odogbo Army Barrack but was later released and ordered to drive his vehicle to Oke Padre under military escort. Saturday Newswatch learnt that the driver of The Sun newspaper, who picked copies of Daily Sun, Daily Telegraph, and Leadership newspapers escaped being accosted because he stopped at Ekotedo area where he shared the  // /% However, unlike other states         carried out, the soldiers who seized newspapers in Ibadan in the morning eventually released them alongside the drivers at 4.50pm when sales for the day ought to have been concluded. In Osogbo, soldiers also invaded the Gbaemu area where the newspapers distribution centre is located, carting away all the copies at the centre before they could be distributed to agents and vendors in the state. The soldiers, numbering about 20, were strategically positioned along Station Road, Osogbo, with an armoured vehicle, while some were positioned at Gbaemu junction. When one of the soldiers was

accosted by our correspondent, he said they were acting on â&#x20AC;&#x153;orders from above.â&#x20AC;? The soldier, who refused to disclose his identity, said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were directed from Abuja to come here.â&#x20AC;? It was gathered that the soldiers were in search of Daily Trust, Leadership and The Nation newspapers as some of them had earlier requested for the newspaper from a distributor at the centre. A newspaper distributor said three of the soldiers had asked for the three newspapers which he said were not available as at the time they made the request. Also, copies of Daily Newswatch and other newspapers which arrived early went through serious scrutiny by the soldiers before they were allowed to be distributed by the agents. Reacting to allegations about the involvement of soldiers    /  "     "    '  General Chris Olukolade, said the military did not authorise     //  for any reason. He explained: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Troops, this morning, embarked on thorough search of vehicles conveying newspapers and newsprints across board. This followed intelligence report indicating movement of materials with grave security implications across the country using the channel of newsprint related consignments. 4&  "  8^    wishes to clarify that the exercise has nothing to do with the content or operation of the media organisations or their personnel as is being wrongly imputed by a section of the press.â&#x20AC;? Olukolade declared that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the military appreciates and indeed respects the role of the media as an indispensable partner in the ongoing counterinsurgency operation and the overall advancement of our countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s democratic

credentials.â&#x20AC;? He assured that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the military will not deliberately and without cause, infringe on the freedom of the press but warned the general /     organisations in particular to ensure that they do not infringe on the laws of the land, stressing that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the seizure was a routine security action and should not be misconstrued for any other motive.â&#x20AC;? But in reaction to the development, the NGE condemned the military for carrying out the nationwide operation. In a statement signed by its President, Mr. 3         +/  destroy democracy. Adesina wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;This explanation from the military is unacceptable to us.

Apparently, they had been    /  +   the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever irrepressible media and thus hid behind a smokescreen to deal a lethal blow at the economic jugular of newspaper. The media do not bear arms; rather we bear information which sheds light   <  +    seemingly impenetrable the darkness is,â&#x20AC;? the statement read in part. It added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let no one accuse        nebulous security breach and hide under that umbrella to traumatise us. Count the media out of anything not designed for the cohesion and general good of the country.â&#x20AC;? NGE further said this is the time for the military as well as other security agencies and the   <   a way to end the insurgencies, lamenting that the clampdown on the newspapers is an indication that the country is on its way back to the era of military regime.

atest governance poll results released by NOIPolls for the month of May, 2014 revealed that 58 percent of Nigerian adults approve performance of the President over the past months; indicating a 9-point increase in his approval rating from April 2014 which stood at 49 percent. This rating according to a press release by NOIpolls represents the second highest in the 17-month period that NOIPolls has been conducting its monthly governance poll  2  ][{Z% The increase in the Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval rating was mainly as a result of the substantial increase observed in those that approved of the Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance in the South-East, South-South and South-West zones. The President has maintained an average ranking in his performance on economy, education, health,

agriculture & food security, transportation and foreign policy & diplomacy, while his performance on job creation, power and security remains very poor. Furthermore, in May, 2014 more Nigerians (42 percent) experienced an overall improvement in power supply over the past one month as against 29 percent in April.

he Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) yesterday kicked against the new directive on live broadcast by the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission (NBC). The electronics media regulatory body had stipulated 48 hours notice before any radio or television organisation could host any live programme. National President of NUJ, Mallam Mohammed Garba, who addressed a press conference in Enugu during a one-day working visit, said that requesting broadcast houses to give NBC 48 hours notice before airing live political programmes would amount to unbridled censorship and gagging of the media.

He said that it is also targeted at opposition political parties; a development he said is dangerous to the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nascent democracy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;NUJ wants to express dismay and our concern about the circular that    Z[ emanating from the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission, NBC, for live broadcast in the media in Nigeria.

Politics Soon, Ebonyiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do without FGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allocation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Elechi Governor Martin Elechi of Ebonyi State recently spoke to journalists at the just-concluded Democracy Day celebration in the state. He talked about Federal Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval of a bond request by the state government, the various infrastructural and agricultural projects in the state, but declined to speak on the 2015 project and his choice of successor. Our correspondent, KENNETH OFOMA, brings the excerpts.

T

here are lots of gigantic projects going on in the state. How can you ensure that these projects are not abandoned at the end of the day? The only way to answer that question is to say that you are invited before the end of this year to witness the commissioning of those projects. So the issue of abandonment does not arise. This country has been depending on oil. What actually are we doing to ensure that even from the proceeds of our soil here, you can sustain the operations of Ebonyi State if oil dries up one day? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how much of our agricultural programmes you are familiar with. You may not know that part of the revolution. Part of the innovations we are introducing into the system is in agriculture. Not only do we have over 20 new tractors, we also have those rice mills - three in number - on the basis of one per senatorial zone. We also sent our youths to Songhai in the Benin Republic. They are now on their own. We recently established the Agricultural Development Corporation which will be a link between the Ministry of Agriculture and the public. It has its own programme of direct production of rice, poultry products processing as well as marketing. So, we are taking it in a very serious manner and we are at a very high level in that it is not business as usual. Only last week, I gave approval for the procurement of grains of rice for direct planning because we have our own farms which are demonstrative in nature and concept such that everybody else will see what we are doing and try to buy into it. And so, agriculture is one of the things we are revolutionising more than any other sub-sector. If you go to our poultry farm which was moribund at the time we came in, you will see that it is currently being manned by Israeli and American managers. I invite you to visit that farm and see the number of eggs in stock, the processing methods; sales are on, on daily basis. But that is in the poultry aspect. Our major focus is in rice

production. As we are talking, our equipment procured from China and Vietnam are on the high seas. We believe we will demonstrate some of them during this planting season for the farmers in the rural areas to see that things have changed. You have machines for grain drilling in upland rice production; you also have machines for planting in the swampy area. We have machines that will sow seedlings the way we sow them with our hands - they are all coming on board. By the time all these measures are put in place, it will no longer be the Ebonyi State you knew before. We are very    +     to agriculture. So many people are interested, even from outside Nigeria. The USAID, for instance, is coming to assist in the way we do things. United Nations agencies such 3"   as well as in technology to improve on the quality of grain and the species of rice we plant. These are   /  place to ensure that we are not just dependent on handouts from the Federal Government by way of federation account allocation. Recently, you held a town hall meeting where you explained the need to get another bond of N15 billion. We are also aware that a particular opposition party has petitioned the Nigeria Stock Exchange opposing the bond. On the day of the town hall meeting, majority of the Ebonyi people gave the state government the go ahead to obtain the bond. Today, we have seen some of the projects; some completed, some ongoing and we know that indeed this money will be needed to help in the completion of some of the projects. How soon will the bond money be approved? So far, the Federal Government has given approval for us to get the bond but no state got exactly what it asked for. We got less than we asked     < +  we got the highest. I will not tell you yet until it is on my palms. We requested the Federal Continued on Page 16

Politics

Rivers 2015: Amaechi, Wike and political brickbat Nath Omame, Jr.

I

n the course of the engaging long-running political squabble between Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and the Supervising Minister of Education, Nyesom Ezebunwon Wike, who can one say is in control of the political space in Rivers State? Amaechi has spoken far more frequently about the feud to the media than Wike. Amaechi has on several occasions described his political opponents in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), led by Wike as a band of corrupt politicians. He said his political opponents have chosen to gang up against him because of what he referred to as their collective quest for stomach infrastructure. He has publicly referred to Wike as a desperate politician who wants to be governor of Rivers State at all cost. Governor Amaechi had threatened last year that he would expose Wikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shady deals as his     ][[Ă&#x2030; ][{{% Wikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response, as it has been on most occasions, was terse. The supervising minister of education had thundered: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am waiting for Governor Amaechi to spill the beans; then, I will speak. I will respond to him point by point on the allegation of corruption against me. Amaechi is paying for underrating me.â&#x20AC;? Wike was arrested severally by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). On a joint courtesy visit to Wike in February by the immediate past commissioner of police in the state, Mbu Joseph Mbu and his successor, Tunde Ogunsakin, Wike gave an inkling about his experience in the hands of operatives from the anti-corruption agency. He recalled: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new commissioner of police, Ogunsakin, was the one who handled my case when I was arrested by security operatives. He personally interrogated me. He is a no nonsense man. I can tell you that he is a very tough customer when you come across him.â&#x20AC;? Governor Amaechi, again, lambasted Wike at Bera, in Gokhana Local Government  # 3  {Ă&#x2030; during Senator Magnus Abeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thanksgiving service, saying  Â&#x160;<^  minister but that he recommended him to the President, nonetheless, because as he put it â&#x20AC;?I wanted an Ikwerre man to be a minister in the Federal Government.â&#x20AC;? At the end, Governor Amaechi stated: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wike is too small for me politically to be talking about him. I have said I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about him %Â&#x160;<^ * be a minister. My commissioner of information and strategy speaks far + 7  Â&#x160;<%Â&#x2030; It was at the event that Governor Amaechi disclosed that Wike swore with the names of his children that he, Wike, would not betray him if he recommends him to President Goodluck Jonathan as

a ministerial candidate. Governor Amaechi disclosed that Prophet Suleiman Johnson had intimated him that Wike will betray him if he recommended him to the President for a ministerial appointment. Amaechi explained: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told him what Prophet Suleiman said and Wike swore with the names of his children that he will not betray me. I will never swear with the names of my children because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if I will betray them in the future. But I love my children and I will never swear with the name of any of my children.â&#x20AC;? Governor Amaechi has on three occasions spoken publicly of his willingness to truncate Wikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s / *   ][{Ă&#x2039; governorship polls if he emerges as the anointed candidate of the PDP. His position is hinged on political morality that it will be unfair for Wike, an Ikwerre man to succeed him having served as governor of Rivers State for eight years of two terms. Governor Amaechi and Wike are both of Ikwerre extraction. While Governor Amaechi is from Ubima in Ikwerre Local Government Area, Wike is from Obio/Akpor where he was a local government chairman for two terms by virtue of which he became the chairman of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON). L 3 Z[Â&#x160;< broke his silence and exploded. He spoke at the Obirhe-Erhie, Apara Kingdom Secretariat Complex, in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, where he addressed paramount rulers, elders, chiefs, men and women of Ikwerre Ethnic Nationality Wike, speaking at the event, challenged Governor Amaechi, to contest for the Rivers East Senatorial election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress Â&#x2021;!Â&#x2C6; ][{Ă&#x2039;   to test his perceived popularity in the state. He stated that he would forgive Governor Amaechi if he vies for the seat of the Rivers East Senatorial District on the platform of the APC ][{Ă&#x2039;% He pledged: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only thing Governor Amaechi can do for me to forgive him is to contest for the Rivers East Senatorial District  ][{Ă&#x2039;%8   behind someone if he contest for the vice presidency. If Amaechi vies for the Rivers East Senatorial District election, I will forgive him. If Governor Amaechi can summon the courage to contest for the Rivers East Senatorial District election, I  * % â&#x20AC;&#x153;Governor Amaechi will fail  ][{Ă&#x2039;%#//  deceiving him. The earlier Amaechi   +   %Â&#x160; are waiting for Governor Amaechi  ! /][{Ă&#x2039;% The reason Governor Amaechi decamped to the APC is to enable him control the party structure. Now that he is in charge of the structures of the APC, let him summon the courage to contest for the Rivers East Senatorial District. We are ready and waiting for him.â&#x20AC;? @ ][{Ă&#x2039;/  

Gov Amaechi Wike boasted that Governor Amaechi would have no hand in who becomes the president of Nigeria or governor of Rivers State, adding that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the people of Rivers State will vote for President Goodluck Jonathan for a second term rather than for a vice president from the South South which Governor Amaechi is interested in.â&#x20AC;? Responding to Governor Amaechiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diatribe that the PDP Federal Government is corrupt, Wike asserted that Governor Amaechiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government is naked and corrupt. His words: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Governor Amaechiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government is very corrupt. Governor Amaechiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim to the theories and doctrines of Karl Max is not beyond his throat.â&#x20AC;? He added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now and then, Governor Amaechi will say the Federal Government is corrupt. If there is one government that is naked and stinking, it is the

Governor Amaechi said I am a tout and so I    to be a minister. He appointed a tout as his chief of staff in 2007; he appointed a tout as his campaign director in 2011 and he won; he recommended a tout to the President as a ministerial nominee. So, who, indeed, is the bigger tout?

Wike

Governor Amaechiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. I have told him several times to stop pretending. When the time comes we will talk, and you will be shocked to hear how corrupt Governor Amaechi and his government is.â&#x20AC;? He recalled: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The former Commissioner for Sports gave Emeka Beke, a contract to develop          $ =Ă&#x2039;[ million. He did not execute the contract to the satisfaction of the Rivers State government. Governor Amaechi shouted when we inspected the project: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will deal with you; this is corruption. This is unacceptable to my government.â&#x20AC;? Wike continued: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Governor Amaechi awarded a construction contract at the Greater Port 8   Ă?Ă&#x2039;[%8< us to join him to inspect the project. When we got to the site, nothing had happened. Fifty million dollars }  =Ă&#x2030;% We got to the place and there was nothing on ground to show that a project is ongoing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we got back to Government House, the then commissioner for environment asked Governor Amaechi: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You accused the young man who has not properly executed the */         =Ă&#x2039;[ of corruption. What do you think of this man who has abandoned a   Ă?Ă&#x2039;[Ă&#x152;Â&#x2030; The supervising minister of education recalled: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Governor Amaechi replied that the contractor is naĂŻve. We were all shocked. Â&#x160; =Ă&#x2039;[ ** was corruption and you threatened to deal with the young man, but Ă?Ă&#x2039;[   involved, Governor Amaechi said it was naivety. That is Governor Amaechiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anti-corruption crusade for you.â&#x20AC;? According to Wike, â&#x20AC;&#x153;those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. At the appropriate time we will talk. We will talk when election campaigns start. When we start to talk, believe me you will be shocked at the revelations that we will make.

Â&#x201E;*   / + / a façade. He is not what he claims to be in public. He is very corrupt. Please, I want the press to quote me on that.â&#x20AC;? Reacting to Governor Amaechiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allegation that he, Wike, swore with the names of his children not to betray him if he recommended Wike as a ministerial nominee to President Jonathan, Wike, /< Ă&#x2039;{%{Ă&#x160;  Ikwerre paramount rulers, elders and chiefs, challenged Governor Amaechi to state publicly if he, Â&#x160;<< ][[Ă&#x2030; work for him in securing his governorship mandate after he went to Ghana on voluntary selfexile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody knows that Governor Amaechi went to Ghana      +   * ][[Ă&#x2030;*   / mandate. Please ask Governor    <][[Ă&#x2030; to work for the restoration of his mandate from the High Court to the Supreme Court where he eventually won. Ask him to tell you what I used in taking the oath and where I took the oath,â&#x20AC;? Wike said. According to him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Governor Amaechi is confused. Everybody has betrayed him. Even God has betrayed him. Ikwerre paramount rulers have betrayed him; Ikwerre chiefs have betrayed Governor Amaechi; lawmakers have betrayed him; civil servants have betrayed him. So, why is everybody betraying Governor Amaechi and he is not betraying anybody? What, indeed, is Governor Amaechiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problem? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said I am too small for him and as such he will not talk about me, but everyday he is talking about me. In his sleep he is talking about me; he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop talking about me; he will continue to talk about me because I will not allow him to sleep until he leaves President Jonathan alone /       peace.â&#x20AC;? Wike continued: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Governor Amaechi said I am a tout and so I ^  % He appointed a tout as his chief of ][[Ă&#x2030;} //    /   ][{{ and he won; he recommended a tout to the President as a ministerial nominee.

It is because all those who worked for him to  *  ][[Ă&#x2030;][{{ have all left him. Now, Governor Amaechi is empty politically. So, where are his new friends? Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they help him the way we assisted him in the past?â&#x20AC;? On Amaechiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position that an Ikwerre man should not succeed

][{{Â&#x160;<  the governor of double speak. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amaechi said two days ago that the president of Nigeria can come from anywhere. But when it comes to the governorship of Rivers State, an Ikwerre man should not be governor,â&#x20AC;? he wondered. He continued: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Governor Amaechi is an APC politician;

Letters to the Editor Between IGP Abubakar and CP Mbu

F

ollowing the sporadic protests which erupted as a result of the abduction of the over 200 school girls from the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Bornu State, the Commissioner of Police, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr Joseph Mbu, placed a clampdown on the activities the BringBackOurGirls campaign organisers and protesters, saying that their activities on    '  +  security concern. However, with special consideration to Mbuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s antecedents which so many people have divided opinion about, a series of    /%Â&#x160; *  apologists applauded the decision, describing it as landmark, since the protest was n longer adding value to the rescue of the girls, others, especially from the opposition saw it as an    * association, adding that he wishes to the iron that saw him calling the shots in Rivers State a few months ago before his deployment. However, Mbu stood his ground, and insisted that the rallies and protests do not mean well for the security of the nation, and Abuja in particular. Barely 24 hours however, the Inspector

General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar,    + < *<     subordinate, thereby allowing the resurgence of the once clamped down protest. The question therefore, is between these two super cops, who had done the right  Ă&#x152;Â&#x160;    /  or he that revoked the clampdown? Does it mean that Mbu did not take a cursory look at the situation before announcing   / Ă&#x152;Â&#x160;   genuine security reasons or just his supposed super antecedents of bullying the authority as well as the citizens. Again, what was the IGPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yardstick for cancelling the clampdown and recalling the protesters to the streets, thereby disgracing Mbu. The IGPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action has quietly casts aspersions on the ability of the CP who gave the governor of Rivers State, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi a run for his money during his brief spell in the state. The IGP and the CP should work together +/   that is if any of them is dancing to someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tune. Eric Elezuo, Festac Town

Al-Makuraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maltreatment of market men and women By Ibrahim Kabiru Dallah

A

good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special Nelson Mandela. Maltreatment of Nigerian youths and students has become common since Umaru Tanko Al-Makura came on board as the governor of Nasarawa State. The maltreatment ranged from polarisation of the National body of the Nasarawa State Students Association (NASSA), unlawful detention of Comrade Yusuf Abubakar Doma, to the over 12 thousands youths that were sacked from the 13 local governments in the state. It is no longer news that Nasarawa State government has forcefully chased market men and women out of the Old Â&#x2020; <   /   recalled that sometimes in August, 2013, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry issued a statement to the general public that whoever is interested in the allocation of shops in  = Â&#x2018;   <Â&#x2020;  +  urgency indicate interest by purchasing an application form at the rate of N10,000 while the yearly surcharges will follow. As I write, no ordinary Nigerian citizen in Nasarawa State was given a single shop after the application in the New Utra Modern Market due to the dubious acts of the government of the day; all the shops were allocated to family and friends of   $ *  *  % The most painful thing in all these is that those the shops were illegally allocated to are now selling the shops to the ordinary market men and women at the rate of N800,000 (Eight Hundred Thousand) or more. This is exploitation of the highest order. This question and so many others are begging    Â&#x152;8  <    to pay such amount of money? Can some move to the new  </     /Ă&#x152;Â&#x160;   *  expect those that are selling groundnut oil, exercise books, shoes, barbers, and tailors in the old market to move to? I could go on and on mentioning the names of those that are       /  ~< ~ government. It is widely accepted that no state will developed without causing minor pains to some people, but it is not accepted when people subjected to the agony of poverty in the name of */%Â&#x160;  $/   *   arrange an alternative before thinking of sending them out of the old market.

As the old market is permanently shutdown by the *   <Â&#x160; < to the street to protest the anti people policy of Gov. Almakura which is surely adding to the level of poverty in the state. This is a state where 70% of its citizens are living in abject poverty as exhibited during the protest when a group of thugs, hired just to earn a living destroyed posters and bill boards of one of the gubernatorial aspirants under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, called Yusuf Mohammed Agabi. One would have expected Gov. Al-Makura to do a thorough check and sample the opinions of relevant stakeholders in the market before coming up with such a decision. The fact is that the state government has taken this step in order to add to the pains of the ordinary citizens that are yearning for a change of leadership in the state. Therefore, without fear of contradiction, the only solution to   /    * + 

of National importance and poverty alleviation revisits the process that led to the illegal allocation of the New Ultra Modern Market to only people in government instead of the real market men and women. Conclusively, I know that some people will shamefully ask what my interest in the ongoing anti people policy of Governor Al-Makura is, however, I want the whole world to remember that Nigerian youths were part and parcel of those that fought for the return of democracy back into Nigeria, as such we cannot keep mute while things are moving in the wrong direction in Nasarawa State. As the countdown to 2015 begins, Nigerian youths in Nasarawa State are determined to ensure that a repeat of the maladministration of the present government is put at bay.

Business & Economy Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy after 15 years of civil rule: Kudos, knocks While the Federal Government beats its chest about the landmark achievements after 15 years of unterrupted civil rule, Nigerians say not much has been done. ABIODUN AWOGBEMI and JOHNMARK UKOKO examine some of the highlights of the economic sector during the period.

Other areas expected to be taken care of are impractical health and safety laws, unrealistic land use policies, costly utility regulations, capricious consumer protection laws, corrupt government procurement and contracting practices and many other anti-business policies. Before 1999, Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image had   '  < * Z[ years of military dictatorship: There was *   } economic planning, policies were  }  *  / others as the country was played out of the global market thereby inhibiting its ability to address poverty.  * <  the then president, Chief Olusegun @' <   /

President Jonathan Fifteen years after, Nigerians hold divided opinions. While some say the political class has dashed the hopes of Nigerians as â&#x20AC;&#x153;many of the economic promisesâ&#x20AC;? have not been delivered, others give kudos to democracy as it has impacted positively on the economy. The Organised Private Sector (OPS) while assessing the era of democracy in its score card, said in many countries, unfriendly or unenlightened government  /        '  existing ones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Often the obstacles are    } / /  *     political leaders. Such unfortunate obstacles can bring unemployment and retard economic growthâ&#x20AC;? State of infrastructure Before 1999, the cost of doing business in the country due to unavailability of necessary infrastructure made goods produced in Nigeria uncompetitive with those of other countries. The state of economic and social infrastructure such as roads, power and energy, transport and telecommunication were poor, inadequate and lacked maintenance. In the same vein, economic incentives were generally low giving rise to inadequate utilisation of the factors of production. Both social and physical infrastructure were in a state of disrepair. At the inception of democracy, successive government went into liberalisation, deregulation and commercialisation. Telecommunication sector was liberalised while power sector was unbundled and privatised. In most states, there was a leap in the areas of road construction while some states run public-private driven transport system, which to a large extent has been functional. & @#    

Obasanjo the government towards the maintenance and expansion of road network which made transportation easier, but called on the government to modernise and expand the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s railways, inland waterways and urban metro network to reduce the pressure on the highways. Agriculture and rural development This sector was stagnant as a result of diminishing productivity occasioned by   % {Â&#x20AC;Ă&#x2030;[  boom created relative disincentives for agriculture in relation to other sectors of the economy. The agricultural sector has not fared +     /    * mangoes, pineapple among others from neighbouring countries like Benin Republic, Togo, Ghana and others despite Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge agricultural endowment. An Agriculturalists, Mr. Bode Akinbo, said it is disheartening that despite millions of naira alleged to have been spent on the sector by the government, its impact has not been felt as we still import virtually every agricultural product even from less developed countries.

remains one of the critical areas where the government was scored high. OPS is of the opinion that some remarkable development has been recorded in the area of telecommunication as liberalisation and competition has brought about improved communication networks with general reduction in access charges which aided industrial and commercial activities in the country. Corruption/graft and national image Without doubt, pervasive corruption has continued to rob Nigerian economy of resources that otherwise could have been used for poverty alleviation and eradication. According to Mr. Bode Akinbo, the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation for corruption has been driving away investors. He said during the government of President Obasanjo, there were palpable fears in the polity as against what is witnessed now where corruption has become full blown. Some highly placed Nigerians were tried and sentenced, but the present administration, according to Akinbo, lacks political will to prosecute corrupt *  /   alleged to be corrupt. The OPS in its submission stated that although corruption is a worldwide phenomenon, the level of corruption and the brazen disregard for rules and regulations in Nigeria is impacting negatively on the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development. It stressed that corruption as at today has become a way of life, especially in government circle. Formerly, the application of sanctions against the / /    *     %   /

In Alegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s views, these have had economic, social and political repercussions for the nation. Crime rate has increased as well as the agitation by the Niger Delta militants, despite amnesty by the late President Umar Yarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Adua, has remained unabated. There has been increased rate of kidnapping for ransom as well as for rituals; all these according to economic observers portend danger to the economy, as no investor is willing to invest in such environment. OPS again, contends that the major causes of political instability and increase in crime rate include the weak economic base and the unhealthy competition for the control of the center. To show how worsened the level of unemployment is, several youths died during the ill-fated Nigeria Immigration Service employment test where a stamped ensued. Also, at every interview venue, employers are always overwhelmed by the number of applicants that turn-up. Some economic analysts are of the opinion that government cannot create jobs, but provide a conducive business environment for private sectors and investors as this is the only way for the production sector to absolve youths for employment.

The government said that life expectancy of Nigerians, according to World Health Organisation, was 47 years before the present administration came on board, adding that through the improved health and quality of life of average Nigerians, life expectancy at the end of last year stood at 54 years. He said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why are some Nigerians and the opposition saying that the quality of Nigerians has gone down?

Abati also disclosed that the government has transformed the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s various airports, carryout reforms in the seaports to make the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ports competitive to their foreign counterparts. He disclosed that the government has embarked on â&#x20AC;&#x153;a revolution in the agricultural sector,â&#x20AC;? adding that very =     food production and will embark on export of foods the country formerly spend huge amount of its scarce foreign reserve on. Speaking to the media recently in Abuja, the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investments Dr. Olusegun Aganga, also showcased the achievements of the current government in the real sector. Aganga disclosed that President Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administration has created a conducive investment climate in the country, adding that many companies, which were forced out of the country before, have signaled their intentions to return. He listed some of the companies as  " /   other companies, which he did not mention. Some supporters of the government also highlighted the reforms in the down steam sector as well as the reforms in the banking and insurance sectors, which have led to the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s banks and insurance companies being among the top 20 biggest banks and insurance companies in Africa. &       sectors have enabled the local banks to be quoted in London and some international stocks exchange markets of the world.

Sports/EURO League Uruguay coach hails Suarezâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maturity

U

ruguay coach Oscar Tabarez has hailed the maturity and â&#x20AC;&#x153;evolutionâ&#x20AC;? of striker Luis Suarez over the years. The 27-year-old is set to be a key player for the South American nation at the World Cup in Brazil, provided he recovers in time from minor knee surgery. Suarez is considered as one of the best forwards in world football and played an integral role in Liverpoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-place      League this season. The former Ajax striker, who joined the    January 2011, scored 31 goals and provided 12 assists in 33 league matches and won the PFA Player of the Year award. The Salto native will be crucial for Uruguay in Brazil just as he was for La Celeste four years ago in South Africa when they reached the semi% Suarez has been embroiled in controversies during his time in England, but Tabarez insists that the former Nacional striker has matured and become more responsible over the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evolved, and he now does that [gets in behind] ever more frequently and with less mistakes,â&#x20AC;? he told The Daily Telegraph. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been his intention on the pitch. Then you have his personality: obstinate, stubborn in achieving what he wants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The metaphor that I use is a ladder that always gets stuck one step up from the last opportunity. Now, I see him at the peak age for a footballer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think, through the years, he has matured.

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learnt a lot from the things heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been through and now he sums up the philosophy that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve brought here: the importance of the youth process and its      team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s won a lot of plaudits, but also responsibility, which he bears perfectly well. He knows that Liverpool expect a lot from him and he always lives up to it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Think about losing the ball. The player has to make the right decision: heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only been a goalscorer in the Premier League, but the number of assists demonstrates his evolution and his understanding of the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But here, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put any special responsibility on him.â&#x20AC;?Uruguay have been drawn against England, Italy and Costa Rica in Group D in Brazil, and Tabarez insists that the Three Lions cannot be taken lightly The 67-year-old also speaks highly of his English counterpart Roy Hodgson, having been in charge of AC Milan while Hodgson was the coach of their rivals Inter Milan in the mid-1990s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know England - the players, the manager,â&#x20AC;? said Tabarez, â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was at Inter when I was at Milan, and we saw each other in Florianopolis, for a coaching seminar. 48< a gentleman, but also a manager with tremendous experience.

History up for grabs in Japan

S

even Australasians will be bidding to make a bit of history this week      the prestigious Japan PGA Championship. New Zealandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Michael Hendry, ranked 12th on the money list and coming $ /   week, is in good form as is Queenslandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brad Kennedy. No Australasian has ever won the Japan PGA Championship which has a history dating back to 1926. Joining Hendry and    week are David Smail, Steven

Conran, Paul Sheehan,   &# + Strange. Kennedy, a two time winner in Japan, is having a solid season with consecutive /~Ă&#x2039; /   //   at the Mizuno Open last week. Hendry has also been consistent, making the cut in each of his six events to date     &Ă&#x2C6;Â&#x20AC;% Five time Japan Tour winner David Smail will be looking for a good result this week after missing his three   $* the season.

A

week before his debut at the U.S. Open, Dutch golfer Joost Luiten has    Ă? defending a European Tour title at the Lyoness Open. Luiten won the event last year when he held on to his lead from the second day to win by two strokes from Thomas Bjorn of Denmark at Diamond Country Club. 4/ +/   back here and defend my title,â&#x20AC;? Luiten said on Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that every week and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know what to expect. But it means no extra pressure.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice and positive feeling.â&#x20AC;? Luiten has an excellent record on the course, 50 kilometers west of Vienna. He placed third at his  *  ][{{% â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know I can play good golf on this course so I can start with  Â&#x2030; %4Â&#x160; is the goal. A top three would be good but I am really here to win it again.â&#x20AC;? It was Luitenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second victory on the European Tour after winning the Iskandar Johor Open in Malaysia two years earlier, and was followed in September by his third at the KLM Open in his home country.

ameron Smith will be looking to break into the top 10 of the Asian Tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Order of Merit when he plays just his third event of the season this week. Smith, who turned Professional last year after an impressive       second in spectacular fashion in just his second Asian Tour event at the Indonesian Masters in April. Smith, who survived two stages of Q-School to earn his card in Asia, was beaten by a stunning 72nd hole eagle from Indian star Anirban Lahiri but the $64,875 cheque for his runner-up result has him in 12th

position on the Order of Merit. Recent winner Marcus Both, who is not playing this week, has higher earnings for the year among the Australians playing the Asian circuit. Smith is one of 12 Australians who will tee up this week in a strong   Asiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most successful players. Other Australians looking for good results are reigning Victorian @/ /+ Â&#x201E;    at 102 on the Order of Merit through two events, and New Zealand Open winners Jake 8+" Papadatos.

During the Nigerian civil war, he recalled, some people came up with the Troop Comfort Fund, which raised some fund used to provide food and other needs. 4#*  + / of Security Trust Fund. All those involved will know that the Nigerian society sympathized with them and know how this money will be used. Now, many of our troops including the police may come back with amputated legs and hands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This money can be ploughed into a central medical centre for the rehabilitation of those who would have been maimed during this crisis. And the fund will be such that every Nigerian who believes that what we are facing now is a big tragedy for us will contribute to the fund,â&#x20AC;? he said. To the duo of Commodore Olabode George (rtd) and Colonel Bala Mande (rtd), the foreign intervention, especially that of the US is a right step, which Nigeria must explore rather than condemn as an insult on the territorial integrity of the nation. George said the intervention is the current trend in global politics, which has made all nations interdependent of one another. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The world has become a global village and no nation can do anything all by itself, it needs international cooperation. We as a nation too, we have been in Liberia, in Sierra Leone, we have served even in the North of Africa. So if they come to our aid, nothing is wrong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even America as powerful and global as their operation is, they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say they can do it alone. Each time they are heading into anywhere, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you see them begging the European forces? They may be more than others, but they require the services and cooperation of others, it is an international cooperation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look at what is going on in Ukraine         Russians on their own? No. Nobody        now with another third world war. That is the cogent reason why their presence is necessary. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to end up like Somalia,â&#x20AC;? the former military governor of the former Ondo State said. Mande added that the bilateral

But we need our friends also to identify with us and America is a friend to Nigeria. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t refuse such gestures from your friends,â&#x20AC;? the former military administrator of Nasarawa State said.

to apply more justice in governance, catering for people, especially in the insurgency states.The increasing recruitment of innocent boys and girls into Boko Haram, he argued, means failure of the government at the state or local government level in meeting its social responsibilities such as provision of basic necessities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we have not paid particular +' /*  alleviation and education, then we have a problem. But, more importantly, it is the complete lack of discipline on our own part. Chad and Niger Republics are poorer than us but there has not been this kind of serious insurgency in their countries because the system still works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a failure of government.

ere is another intriguing wonder to the world. The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s triangle, is a triangular area of the Atlantic Ocean (305,000 km2) where the disappearances of ships, airplanes, and boats has led to the belief that â&#x20AC;&#x153;supernaturalâ&#x20AC;? forces inhabit this area of the sea. Many planes, ships, and boats are believed to have disappeared in this triangle without a trace. This includes the disappearance of over 1,000 seamen and airmen. In most of these disappearances, it is the fact that no distress signal was ever received from the disappearing ships or planes that enhances the cloud of mystery that surrounds them. Although violent storms and downward air currents frequently occur in the area, scientists have not revealed anything extremely peculiar. Boundaries of the Bermuda Triangle are formed by drawing an imaginary line from Melbourne, Florida, to Bermuda, to Puerto Rico, and back to Florida. Could there truly be an unnatural force at work in this geographical triangle or are these disappearances merely coincidence? Either way, numerous people remain unwilling to step over the boundary line into the Devilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Triangle.

Business & Economy

Arresting menace of tyre burning The craze for imported items by Nigerians is gradually becoming the bane of the economy. It is on record that most of these second-hand imported items are only good for the refuse dump. Surprisingly though, these items are sold in !"#$%&'( among them, used tyres, which are known constitute menace to users. JOHNMARK UKOKO reports.

D

espite the ban of second hand tyres known in local parlance as â&#x20AC;&#x153;tokunbo tyres, by the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), as a result of the danger they pose to motorists and passengers alike, their usage has continued unabated. A visit to Ladipo Market, the biggest second hand tyre market in Lagos, located in the suburbs, revealed that the sale of the item is booming despite campaign against its use. Large trucks and containers were seen either discharging imported second hand tyres or loading the items to be taken to other markets or outside Lagos. A seller of the product, who spoke to our correspondent at the market, disclosed that despite the harassment from some quarters, many Nigerians still prefer the product to the expensive brand new ones. This development was the reason behind the relocation of tyre producing giants like  " /  %7  by various governments to return them to the    *+   % In a previous report published by Saturday Newswatch, the National President of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Alhaji Najim Gidado, blamed his membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; continued usage of second hand tyres to the inability of Standards Organisation of Nigeria, (SON) to certify genuine new tyres. Gidado, while addressing the media, disclosed that his members have discovered that second hand tyres are more reliable, durable and far cheaper than the â&#x20AC;&#x153;so called brand new tyres, which he said are inferior to the good grade second hands ones. The NURTW boss said his members have opted to continue to use the second hand tyres instead of the so called brand new ones which are unable to withstand the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deplorable roads. The image maker of SON, Mr. Mathias Bassey, however, debunked the NURTWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allegation. Bassey disclosed that his agency has destroyed billions of naira worth of tyres in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt, Onitsha, Nnewi and some other cities where the sale of the product is booming. The question therefore, is how does SON and other Nigerians destroyed old and discarded tyres in their custody? # =      that SON destroyed sized old and expired tyres through burning at a bush in Shagamu, Ogun State. Findings showed that petrol is poured on   /    }

the smoke and odour from the burnt tyres experts say, are very dangerous to human health. This fact was disclosed by Dr, Ayodele Agbaje of the Human Heritage Hospital, Lagos, in an interview with Saturday Newswatch recently. Dr. Agbaje said that the chemicals discharge to the atmosphere anytime tyres are destroyed   / // animals within the environment inhale poisonous gases which are harmful to lives. The medical practitioner blamed emergence of strange diseases in the country in recent years to the degradation of the ozone layers, and the indiscriminate discharge of harmful chemicals to the atmosphere. He stressed that burning of old and discarded tyres is an old practice, which should have been discarded by now, adding that saner climes have discovered safe ways of destroying old and discarded harmful products such as tyres.

The government has a duty to set-up an agency responsible to buy the old tyres from motorists, motor parks, mechanics, old tyres sellers and others, to encourage them to hands off their old tyres in other for the authorities to dispose them properly.

Another respondent, an auto mechanics, Mr. Inibong Edom, disclosed that he has indulged in the practice in the past, adding that the smoke and the odour it produced was dangerous to the people who were in the area where he carried out the action. Edom stressed that he was still indulging  /          wastes took over the task of collecting refuse in his Ogudu area of Lagos State. According to him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to burn old tyres and other waste items found around my workshop. The private refuse collecting company now carryout the task for me. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how they dispose old and discarded tyres when they take them away.â&#x20AC;? Findings showed that street urchins known in the local parlance as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Area boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; also indulge in burning of â&#x20AC;&#x153;suspected criminalsâ&#x20AC;? with the use of old tyres around their necks. The practice has become rampant in the South West of Nigeria in recent times due to the spread of ritual killings and kidnappings in the country. A respondent, Mr. Taiwo Supo, who also +   / said that it will take the authorities a lot of hard work to stop Nigerians from burning tyres, adding that he does not believe that the authorities has what it takes to stop the practice. He added that to reduce indiscriminate tyre-burning, the government should setup   / < /   Nigerians and junk shops to reduce the rate Nigerians indulge in burning of the tyres. Another respondent, Mr. Ikpe Okon, suggested that to reduce the rate Nigerians engage in the burning of old tyres, government has to partner with motorists, mechanics, vulcanizers and others who deal in old tyres, so as to dispose them properly. Okon said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The government has a duty to set-up an agency responsible to buy the old tyres from motorists, motor parks, mechanics, old tyres sellers and others, to encourage          the authorities to dispose them properly. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong for us to continue to destroy tyres in  % Analysts warned that the country has to protect the environment by ensuring that waste are properly disposed to ensure that the environment is not polluted, and to avoid strange diseases in the country. The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), Ministry of Environment and any     /  /   the environment and peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health should take steps to tackle the menace head-on.

Dud cheques, threat to cashlite policy Continued from Page 24

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has issued a directive to all banks in respect of the issuance of dud cheques to third parties, that is, cheques issued against unfunded accounts. This directive is to check the incidence of dishonoured ^      has been on the increase, resulting in low    /  ^  a payment method, thereby undermining the CBNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cash-lite policy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a result, the CBN has directed all deposit money banks to identify and report customers who have issued dud cheques on three occasions since July 5, 2013. This information will in turn be forwarded to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for investigation. This is part of the apex <      dud cheques. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a valued customer of Diamond Bank, we advise that you ensure your account is adequately funded before issuing a cheque to a third party to prevent your cheque from being dishonoured. It was gathered that the CBN probably opted to hand over suspects to the EFCC for prosecution because nobody has  *       Dishononoured/Dud Cheque Act of 1977. The Act which stipulates a two-year jail term upon conviction for dud cheque issuers has hardly been enforced in the country. This explains why the practice has hitherto, been on increase. The provisions of the Dishonoured/ " ! ^  <   any person anywhere in Nigeria to induce the delivery of any property or to purport +   a cheque which when presented within a reasonable time is dishonoured on the         funds were standing to the credit of the      ^  +  connected therewith. Despite its invincibility to the public about the prosecution of issuer of dude cheque, a lot of people had been docked and prosecuted by the security agencies. The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) appears to have taken the gauntlet scoring some success /    

/      those considers as highly placed. For instance, a publisher, Tony Iwena, was remanded in Kirikiri Prisons, Lagos, by an Ikeja High Court, for allegedly issuing dud cheques to the tune of N13.05 million. The presiding judge, Justice Olutoyin Ipaye, had ordered that the 53-year-old Iwena be kept behind bars pending the   // $ for November 11. Iwena issued three Union Bank cheques for the sum of N13.05 million in favour of Star Chem Industries Ltd. The cheques were dishonoured on presentation at the bank, the court was told. &    *# {Â&#x2021;{Â&#x2C6;  "  ! ^ Â&#x2021;@ Â&#x2C6;  Laws of the Federation, 2004. Iwena, who lives at 1, Otuyelu St., OkeIra in Ogba, Lagos, is being tried on a three-count charge bordering on fraud and issuance of dud cheques by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Also, the Director of Camp David Schools, Ogba, Lagos, Daniel Silva, was charged before an Ikeja Magistrateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Court for allegedly issuing a N900, 000 dud cheque to another party as part payment for the purchase of the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school.

Politics

2015 guber: Yeroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inroad to southern Kaduna Baba Negedu, Kaduna

I

n the political equation of Kaduna State especially as it concerns the governorship position, it is a known fact that any candidate that relegates the position of the southern part of the state to the background is doing so at his own peril. At least, since the dawn of democracy in 1999, all the people that triumphed in the state and found their way into the Sir Kassim Ibrahim House have done so on the back of popular support from the southern part of the state. This can be deduced from the two  #  <  Vice President Namadi Sambo and the late Governor Patrick Yakowa. The story has always been the same as the quantum of block votes from the southern part of the state has been the deciding factor in who wins the governorship slot in the state. This also has been made paramount since the people are known to not always vote en block but give their support to anybody promised such support. It is because of this that even though the incumbent Governor Rammalan Yero has not publicly declared his intention to contest the polls in 2015, his foot soldiers have taken it upon themselves to start canvassing and laying the groundwork to make sure that if he decides to throw his hat into the ring, the job would have been half done and the governor may just be a stone throw from the promised land. To underscore the importance of the area too, those opposed to the perceived governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambition have also been up and doing to deny him the needed and crucial support from the area. L       in top gear to capture the area, the Southern Kaduna Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders last year endorsed the governor in what many say was a master stroke to undercut the opposition in the zone. In what was supposed to be a Sallah homage to the governor last year the state PDP stakeholders converged to declare their support for Governor Yero, not only for what they called his good works but also for him to continue in  % Saturday Newswatch reliably gathered that the meeting was aimed at streamlining the support base of the governor following dissenting voices that suddenly emerged within the party hierarchy and the need to forestall any hindrance ahead of the election campaigns. Some of those that gave a snippet of what transpired at the gathering said the move was aimed at gingering Governor Yero to put the needed machinery in motion for the 2015 race. On his part, Governor Yero who met the stakeholders for about six hours, expressed gratitude on the surprise visit, charging every party member to work for peace and unity of the party. While interacting with them, he

Namadi Sambo said he believed that it is God that give power to who he so desires and that no person could on his  <  % Speaking to newsmen afterwards, former chairman, Kachia Local Government Area, Abdulkadir Bello, said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We met with the governor in the spirit of the Sallah celebration. It was a visitation from Zone 3 stakeholders to his Excellency to wish him and the people of the state well, and also    //   knowing very well that Zone 3 is the engine room of the PDP in Kaduna. Normally, majority of the vote for the PDP comes from there. Zone 3 is more or less the winning zone in the state. We have decided  </   from the opposition parties in our zone because their aim is to grab the zone from the PDP. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to let the governor know that all those small talk that there is no PDP in our zone is a lie. So, we came to him to show our solidarity and our loyalty and     Z solidly behind him. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wait for 2015, and you will see what will come out of the zone. As usual the PDP will triumph.â&#x20AC;? This move was also followed by the decamping to the PDP of stalwarts mainly from the southern Kaduna zone in a ground swelling ceremony that witnessed over 500 top notch politicians join the party. The politicians mainly from the southern part of the state declared their intention to join forces with the governor in 2015; they came from  / /  from the All Progressive Congress (APC). Among those that decamped in a grand ceremony at the Shehu Musa Yarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Adua Multi- purpose Sports Complex in Kaduna, include Kennedy Musa, former Kadunaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP); state secretary, Mister Peter; former Kaduna Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN)â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s secretary, Samaila Gandu; former Congress for Progressive Change (CPC)â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mobiliser, Hon. Huseini Dembo; a former ACN senatorial candidate and Mordecai Ibrahim, a former ACN House of Assembly aspirant, among others. According to Hon. Dembo who spoke on behalf of the decamped, all those that moved to the ruling

Sen. Nendal Usman party decided to do so after discovering that the APC couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rival the PDP in the state. Dembo who addressed the gathering, described himself a political prodigal son who has been groping in the dark, adding that Governor Yero has shown him love and kindness and as such has decided to come back home to build the state. He revealed that even when he left the party, his family, associates, friends and the people of Jeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ama Local Government Area where he hails from have been persuading him to return and that he has decided to heed their call to work with the governor in developing Kaduna State. Hon. Dembo who was a founding member of the PDP before he left the party said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have wandered in the desert and found out that there is no place like home and that the home is the PDP to which he is very happy to be back to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have said it times without

We are calling on Governor Yero to contest, and we have resolved to stop at nothing to support him, come 2015. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have decided to pledge our loyalty to Governor Yero; we will always be there for him, by him, support him and partner with him in all that he wants to do

Gov Yero number that what we need in Kaduna State in particular and Nigeria in general is peace and you cannot leave your house because your roof is leaking and go to      /$ his. Such a person should not be taken seriously; rather he should be directed to go back and put his house in order,â&#x20AC;? he said. To show how serious the strategy of Yeroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s henchmen in their determination to make serious inroad into the South even before the commencement of the campaigns, many of those leading the charge of his perceived gubernatorial ambition are selected from that part of the state. Chief among them is the chairman, Kaduna Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON), Danjuma Akuso, who is also the chairman of Kagarko Local Government Area in the southern part of the state. Akuso recently led other local government chairmen in the state to endorse Governor Yero for the 2015 polls even though the governor is yet to declare his intention. Akuso, who led others chairmen to address newsmen at the NUJ secretariat where they vowed to work for Yeroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success in 2015 said, all the 23 local government chairmen have unanimously endorsed Governor Yero for re-election, appealing to all and sundry to support him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are calling on Governor Yero to contest, and we have resolved to stop at nothing to support him, come 2015. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have decided to pledge our loyalty to Governor Yero; we will always be there for him, by him, support him and partner with him in all that he wants to do,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that their decision was based on the style and leadership quality of the governor and his generosity in the release of funds accruing to the local government for projects. But in a swift reaction, the only APC chairman, Lawal Samaila, who was also part of the ALGON delegation, denied any link with the endorsement, explaining that â&#x20AC;&#x153;it is not what brought us to the NUJ secretariat.â&#x20AC;? He explained that he was invited for the conference to brief the press on their activities and

/    % His words: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will like to say this without mincing words and I want it to be on record that I have been invited as the assistant chairman of ALGON, Kaduna State chapter, to brief the media on how far the local governments have fared in the last nine months. We are not here in any way to declare support for any person regardless of his political party.â&#x20AC;? However following recent happening in the area mainly caused by the violence unleashed on the people by gunmen suspected to be the Fulani, the position of the governor has become dicey. In the recent past, it was this development that made the PDP stakeholders to meet with the governor and Vice President Sambo on the way forward. The PDP elders from Southern Kaduna were said to have threatened to abandon Vice President Sambo and the governor, if nothing is done soon to assuage the feelings of the people from the area in view of the APC awareness gaining ground there and the violence been witnessed in the zone. Saturday Newswatch gathered that during the meeting the elders, under the aegis of Southern Kaduna PDP Elders Forum, had told the governor that if nothing is done urgently they might not be able convince their people to support the PDP and most especially Governor Yero if he decides to contest next year. The source revealed that, Senator Haruna Azeez led the delegation of the Southern Kaduna elders and others present at the meeting apart from Vice President Sambo and Governor Yero include the Deputy Governor Nuhu Bajoga, state PDP chairman, Haruna Abubakar - all from the zone; and the senator representing the area as well as the Minister of Environment, among others. Senator Azeez was said to have told Governor Yero that his people were not happy with his style of leadership. The source said the elders accused Governor Yero of double standard, saying his avowed commitment to continue with the late Governor Yakowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s projects was only a public show as many projects in the area have been abandoned. He (Senator Azeez) told the governor and the Vice President that the Southern Kaduna which now controls 10 out of the 23 local government areas, with their   +    northern and central parts of the state, will only vote for President Goodluck Jonathan, the lawmakers, local government chairmen and counsellors under the platform of PDP, but would not vote for Governor Yero in 2015 except he changes his style.

2015: Will APC sink in Benue? Godwin Akor, Makurdi

F

or three years, Prof. Steven Torkuma Ugba has raised the hope of his supporters in the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), now the All Progressives Congress (APC), as he pursued his petition against the re-election of Governor Gabriel Suswam of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Benue State at various law courts after failure to secure judgment at the tribunal. He went to the Appeal Court where

  % At the Supreme Court where the re-trial of the case was ordered, his supporters had the impression that the reconstituted tribunal would declare him winner of the 2011 governorship election characterised by counter motions that delayed the case and forced Ugba to drop the allegation of election malpractices and concentrated      forgery. The issue of whether it was compulsory for Suswam to /       Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), during screening was decided in favour of Suswam at the reconstituted   %=Â&#x2018; approached the Appeal Court where the decision of the lower court was upheld. Chief Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, who represented Ugba was optimistic that the Supreme Court would rule in favour of his client but Suswamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyers ""#= a motion urging the apex court to declare the case closed as the 180 days provided in Section 185 of the 1999 Constitution for the consideration and determination of governorship election petitions had elapsed. When the Supreme Court      the case must close because of the provision in the constitution, Ugbaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyers allegedly told their client that the court had trampled on his fundamental human right and right to fair hearing; so, they would ask the apex court to overrule itself on  +     be heard from the beginning to end. They also told Ugba that the seven judges of the apex court did not participate in the judgment; so, it was subject to a review. Consequently, Ugba told his supporters that hope was not lost as the Supreme Court was being asked to look at its ruling on the 180 days provision in the constitution. The general impression the APC youths had

Gov Suswam was that the apex court would reverse its decision and consequently declare Ugba governor of the state. In many parts of Benue State, members of the APC described him as governor in waiting. Supreme Court looked at the   +   both sides and discovered that  Â&#x2018;+  copy of the judgment they were complaining of to their brief. The court gave time to Mr. Simon Orkuma, who represented Ugba +     $Â&#x20AC;][{Ă&#x2C6;  judgment. Eventually, the judgment was against Ugba and the APC. They were told to pay N1 million each to Suswam, PDP and INEC for embarking on an academic exercise and abusing court process. Since the judgment was delivered by the Supreme Court, all has not been well with the Benue State chapter of the APC where bigwigs like Prof. David Iornem, Alhaji Usman Abubakar, Ambassador Mike Gbasha, Senator Daniel Saror and Mr. Mzenda Iho have decided to leave the party because of what they described as Senator George Akumeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imposition of candidates and high handedness. Ahead of 2015, many chieftains of the APC have planned defection rallies across the state. While some are eyeing the PDP, others prefer the Labour Party (LP) but the Akume faction in  !  / + headed by Justice A.P.B. Utsaha to reconcile aggrieved members. A top notcher of the APC, Senator J.K.N. Waku, believed to be in the same faction with Akume, told newsmen on phone that the party would wait for the outcome of the work of the Utsahaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s + <    steps on how to oil the minds of aggrieved members. He said every political party has leader at the federal, state and local government levels, appealing to those planning defection to other parties to re-

Gbasha consider their stand for Nigeria democracyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viability. Some pertinent questions however arose from the Supreme Court judgment and the shaky nature of the main opposition party in Benue, the APC: Would the APC be as strong as it was during the 2011 general elections in the 2015 elections; would the party have a formidable governorship candidate in the 2015 elections since Iornem, the director general of the campaign of the 2011 governorship candidate of the APC, then the ACN, Ugba, has defected to the PDP and; would the Senate Minority leader, Dr. Akume, have the      ! and elections like he did in 2011? & /     *    Akume to handle because the APC states in other parts of Nigeria may rescue the Benue chapter. The wrangling in the Benue APC may become a boost to the PDP even as the former deputy governorship candidate of the party, Alhaji Usman Abubakar, is not likely to defect to that party.

Ahead of 2015, many chieftains of the APC have planned defection rallies across the state. While some are eyeing the PDP, others prefer the Labour Party (LP) but the Akume faction in the APC has set up a committee headed by Justice A.P.B. Utsaha to reconcile aggrieved members

Iornem The rift between Abubakar and the Senate President, David Mark, which started in 2003 appears not to have ended even as the opposition is not strong in Benue South Senatorial District. If Alhaji Abubakar joins a weak opposition party, that may be the end of opposition in the Idoma speaking area of the state. In the Tiv-speaking area of the state, especially in the Benue North East Senatorial District where Senator Iornem and the former security adviser to Governor Suswam and member of the House of the Representatives, Mr. Benjamin Aboho, have defected to the PDP, there may be no strong opposition while in the Benue North West Senatorial District where Akume comes from, the House of Representatives member, Mr. Orker Jev, was dragged to court by another member of the APC. Last year, Mrs. Ngunan Addingi, a member of the APC alleged in court that the former minority leader of the state Assembly, Mr. Adugu Gbileve, unlawfully took over her position despite the fact that she was duly declared winner by Supreme Court. All the aforementioned premises may still not guarantee victory for the PDP as Senator Barnabas Gemade is said to be preparing to confront Suswam at the primaries in the Benue North East Senatorial District. Apart from that, the number of those seeking governorship of the state appears to be too much. Even as Governor Suswam has consistently said he has not anointed any governorship aspirant, he has the duty of conducting fair and transparent primary elections as leader of the PDP in the state. Whether the Supreme Court judgment of May 9 or the internal APC crisis would sink the party or the PDP would have  ][{Ă&#x2039;  elections is what subsequent *    ][{Ă&#x2039; approaches.

the party and the state, all agreed to meet again after some of the issues would have been sorted out. Saturday Newswatch gathered that Vice President Sambo is doing all he could to retain Kaduna State as a PDP state and has promise to tackle some of the issues raised during the parley. When contacted on the development, PDP Chairman, Chief Abubakar Gaiya Haruna        meeting, but denied knowledge of any plan not to vote for Governor Yero in 2015. When asked about the crux of  *   /  chairman said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;How can I tell you what we discussed at the meeting? Yes, we had a meeting that runs through the night but I cannot tell you what was discussed at the meeting.â&#x20AC;? The source however said the governor promised to change his style and carry the people along, urging the elders to convince their people not to leave the PDP or abandon his government. It might be because of this that he recently told the people of the area that his administration  + / all ongoing projects initiated by his predecessors in the state. Speaking in Kafanchan at the heart of Southern Kaduna during the distribution of empowerment materials to women and youth by Senator Esther Nenadi Usman (PDP, Kaduna South), Governor Yero said it amounts to wastage for government to abandon projects initiated by past administrations. According to him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;our administration has not and will not dump any projects initiated by regimes before us. While we continue to allocate scarce resources to tackle numerous demands, it is imperative to ensure completion of ongoing projects in order to ensure prudent spending of public funds. It will amount to wastage and retrogression if every administration dumps projects initiated by its predecessors and we shall not fall into such a trap.â&#x20AC;? He went further to say that the state government has made budgetary provision of N8.2 billion this year to be spent on ongoing road projects in the Southern Kaduna zone. He said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Zone 3 alone, there are 15 ongoing road projects that have been earmarked for funding  ][{Ă&#x2C6; %Â&#x160;   at various stages of completion, our administration has successfully completed the Zonkwa-Yarbam road, Tum-Madakiya road and the College of Education-Gidan Waya road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Several other road projects have reached advanced stage of completion and these include the Jere-Kurmin Jibrin and Kwoi     Ă&#x2030;Ă&#x2C6;/  cent completion; the Wazo-AssoTanda-Gegira washout that is at 92 per cent completion and the Zonal Police Headquarter-Kaduna State University Campus access road that is at 96 per cent completion. We have made a total allocation of N8.251 billion in the budget as funding for ongoing road projects in Zone 3 this year. There are also projects in other sectors, including education, health, rural development and water supply that are ongoing in all parts of the state.â&#x20AC;?

Politics

How we wrongly sacked Fayose â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Former lawmaker legs as they paved way for Ojudu and his co-travellers to realise their political ambition. Ojudu is now a senator.

Barrister Gbadebo Ibuoye was a member of the Ekiti State House of Assembly that impeached former Governor Ayodele Fayose. He is today a frontline member of the Ayo Fayose Campaign Organisation (AFCO). In this interview with RAPHAEL ADEYANJU, he explains why the Assembly impeached the former governor and the implication of that impeachment on Fayoseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s present gubernatorial ambition.

T

he governorship candidate of your party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has been going round various communities in the state, canvassing votes. How bright is his chance in the coming election? His chances are very bright. Fayose will win the election with a wide margin. He is going to repeat the spectacular feat he performed in 2003 when he sent the Otunba Niyi Adebayo-led Alliance for Democracy (AD) government parking. In a free and fair election, Fayose is the favourite of the Ekiti electorate. The response to his campaign rally is overwhelming, though not surprising. If you can remember the reaction of the people on the day he was declared candidate of our party - the jubilant crowd that trooped to celebrate his victory - it is a clear evidence of the fact that Fayose is actually the man of the people. On the day he returned from Abuja where he had gone to obtain the / //  < of life - all the way from Ikere Ekiti to Ado Ekiti - trooped out to welcome their beloved one. Since we started the campaign, at every village, town we visited it has been a huge crowd turning out to listen to our campaign messages. You were a member of the Ekiti State House of Assembly that impeached the former governor on October 16, 2006 and now you are one of his ardent supporters. Why the sudden change of mind? Well, that impeachment was planned and executed by external forces. Most of us, members of the House that signed the impeachment +     %&  whole thing was a conspiracy between some interest groups and some powerful individuals who were hell bent on removing the former governor. Why did they take us to Lagos for a whole month? Is 7<Â&#x2020;Ă&#x152;&    Â&#x2020;*    put in a room - me, Chief Aderemi and three others. The president of our cell was a Yahoo-Yahoo suspect. When we were taken to Lagos, I was *  @ Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, Ile Ife, where I had been + * <%&  show you that the whole process was abnormal. Do you mean that Fayose was not properly impeached?

He was not properly impeached; the impeachment was based on nothing. The Chief Judge of Ekiti State, Hon. Justice Kayode Bamisile,   / + to look into the impeachment    +  fault in Fayose, but the then Speaker of the House, late Hon. Friday Aderemi, got a judge, in person of Hon. Jide Aladejana to act as the chief judge. It was the usurper that   + that got Fayose impeached. Those behind the whole saga have caused Ekiti State a lot of injuries. These elements are at it again and the people are ready to resist them. What injuries are you talking about? Let me start with our party, the PDP. Immediately Fayose was removed, the PDP was in disarray and the opposition party, the then Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) became louder. It took the return of Fayose to reawaken the party. He has brought all the old brigades that left the party back to the fold. What has the state gained from the impeachment? It gained a state of emergency which produced a sole administrator from Ogun State while all the democratic structures were dismantled. Not even in the North eastern part of the country with the Boko Haram scourge has such happened. We gained political instability. Aderemi became a two-day governor; Tope Ademiluyi a three-month governor. We gained notoriety; we gained a rerun election; we gained endless litigation, and a discredited judiciary. Justice Ayo Salami became a casualty of the whole crisis. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you think that the Â&#x201A;Â&#x192;Â&#x201E;Â&#x20AC;Â&#x2020;Â&#x2021;Â&#x192;Â&#x20AC;Â&#x2C6;Â&#x2030;Â&#x160;Â&#x192;Â&#x2020;Â&#x2039;Â&#x160;Â&#x2020;Â&#x152;Â&#x20AC;Â&#x2030;Â&#x160;Â&#x2020;Â&#x2039;~Â?Â&#x20AC;Â&#x2018;Â?Â&#x160; competence to contest this election? No, it will not. Fayose is competent to contest the election. Remember that Senator Iyiola Omisore was impeached as the deputy governor of Osun State. He contested election into the Senate and won and when his opponents raised the issue of impeachment, they were told by a competent law court that impeachment is purely  *+  criminal case. Besides, the House of Assembly is neither a tribunal nor a law court that can indict or convict anybody for any criminal case. The law is very clear on the reason you can disqualify a candidate for the position of a governor in Nigeria; such a person must have

Ibuoye been convicted by a competent law court for a criminal case. It can also happen on the ground of insanity; that is, if it has been truly     a sound mind. Now, I want to ask you a question. Why do you think Governor Kayode Fayemi has been going all over Ekiti? He and his wife have been going from village to village, asking for votes. If they knew Fayose is not competent to contest the election, they would have gone to court before now to stop him. Let me also remind you that Fayose had contested election into the Senate after the purported impeachment. The other time you were speaking, you accused some powerful elements as being behind the Ekiti political crisis. Can you mention names? Yes, why not! There is this mischievous group called E-Eleven; they masterminded the whole charade. Senator Babafemi Ojudu and other members of the group were with us throughout the time we were detained in Lagos; they mounted pressure on our people to impeach Fayose, promising that     + in a hall of fame. That was how the legislators shot themselves in the

It was the usurper that constituted an illegal committee that got Fayose impeached. Those behind the whole saga have caused Ekiti State a lot of injuries. These elements are at it again and the people are ready to resist them

The E-Eleven claimed that they are non-partisan, and that they are only ~Â&#x192;Â&#x192;Â&#x201A;8Â&#x20AC;Â&#x2019;Â&#x160;Â&#x2030;~Â&#x160;Â&#x201C;~~Â&#x2019;Â&#x160;Â&#x201C;~Â&#x201D;Â&#x20AC;Â&#x2022;Â&#x2C6;Â&#x2020;Â&#x2C6;Â&#x20AC;Â&#x160;Â&#x201A;Â&#x2C6;Â&#x160; Ekiti State. Do you agree? What this group has not done is to register a political party. All the activities of the members have been geared towards achieving one aim - to capture the political power in the state. When they started their devious campaign against Fayose in 2006, Ekiti people were taken in by their pretentious patriotic fervour, but everybody has seen them for what they are now. They are active members of the All Progressive Congress (APC). You see, they have been boasting of producing two governors. Chief Segun Oni, Governor Kayode Fayemi and Senator Ojudu are members of this group. Oni was planted in the PDP, while Fayemi was planted in the APC. It worked out well for them when Oni became the governor and after he has completed his assignment, he is now back in the APC. These people are anti-Ekiti and highly mischievous. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you think these are strong words? Not too strong. The truth is that some of the members of the E-Eleven, even before the group became this notorious, have done nothing other than cause evil for Ekiti State. People like Senator Ojudu were the ones who waged war against Otunba Adebayo when he was governor; they waged war against Fayose and when Oni became governor, the same elements in the E-Eleven     + that they were instrumental to an agreement between Fayemi and Oni that whoever emerged as governor between the duo would be supported. Ekiti people must begin to ask these characters what happened to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Head or Tailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; agreement entered into between Oni and Fayemi. Why did they look the other side when Fayose was campaigning for Fayemi against Oni, another member of the group, in 2009? Why didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they raise all the issues they are now raising then? Does it mean that it was when Fayose is not working for the APC that they suddenly remembered that he is a bad boy? How would you react to the information that the group has threatened to sue the Director General of AFCO, Chief Dipo Anisulowo, over a statement that the E-Eleven had defrauded the state in the management of the state-owned Fountain Hotels? I think Anisulowo has responded that the PDPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is not afraid to confront the group in any court of law over the statement. Â&#x2020;Â&#x2C6;Â&#x160;Â&#x2039;~Â&#x2013;Â&#x160;Â&#x2020;Â&#x2030;Â&#x20AC;Â&#x201C;~Â&#x2022;Â&#x201A;Â&#x2020;Â&#x2014;Â&#x2014;Â&#x2039;Â&#x160;Â&#x2020;7Â&#x2022;Â&#x192;Â&#x160;Â&#x2030;Â&#x2021;Â&#x2020;Â&#x2030;Â&#x160; the Fountain Hotel was leased to the E-Eleven group? I cannot state the real management of the hotel; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the name of the company used and those hiding behind it.

or latent, manifest or potential dictatorship.â&#x20AC;? But Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue State, one of the governors in the camp of Governor Jang provided answer to why Jang was made the factional chairman of the NGF. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quality leadership, experience, wisdom and fear of God were the qualities we saw in Governor Jang in making him the chairman of the NGF,â&#x20AC;? he said. Speaking during activities to mark Governor Jangâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 70 birthday, Suswam said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jang possesses unequalled leadership quality and strong desires for socio-economic development. Jang has exhibited and proven these qualities at any given opportunity to do so. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the social infrastructure we enjoy today in Benue State are the handiwork of Jang when he served as military administrator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jang has also proven these qualities in his home state where he is still a governor today: massive road construction, agricultural revolution and youth empowerment, to mention a few,â&#x20AC;? Suswam said. Defending one of its own, the governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, stressed â&#x20AC;&#x153;that the chairman of NGF, Governor Amaechi never spoke as Amaechi; he was the voice of his colleagues, who have reached a consensus on a number of issues: excess crude, Sovereign Wealth Fund, state police, constitutional reforms, polio eradication campaign and peer review mechanism. These are issues Amaechi, or whoever is in that position will speak on, on behalf of his colleagues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are all adults, capable of *   % to the best of my knowledge, the   Â&#x201E;*   Amaechi made after winning the NGF election was a very reconciliatory remark. He appealed to all to sheathe their swords and forget all that had happened. He appealed to all of us to continue to work with the President in order to take Nigeria forward and deepen our democracy. I think we all agree     + between the President and the governorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; forum,â&#x20AC;? Fayemi said. The panacea in the view of Fayemi: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way out is for all of us is to try and regain the trust   =  because I believe you are right that we have disappointed Nigerians with this and I apologise on behalf of all of us for that.â&#x20AC;? Following the defection of Amaechi to the APC and Jang, being a PDP governor and leader of another faction of the NGF, it is imperative to conclude that ahead of the 2015 general elections, each of them will  /   to enhance the electoral value of his principal. It is therefore a      Â&#x201E;3 and Peoples Democratic Party Governors forum. For how long will the NGF remain divided and who will reconcile the two camps? This may be determined by the dynamics of time.

Government adopted wrong approach in rescuing Chibok girls, says monarch

As a mark of gratitude and with a sense of appreciation to God, the Osile of Oke Ona, Oba Adedapo Tejuoso, attributed his ascension onto the throne of his ancestors with thanksgiving to God. TOPE OLUKOLE reports.

This, they do, in total surrender and humility in praise to God Almighty revering his sovereignty. Beyond the gathering of kings and royal fathers for the praise and worship of God in submission and reverence of his supremacy, the Kings Day of Praise has become an annual event in Egbaland, courtesy of Oba Karunwi III Evangelical Movement. This is the vision that propels Oba (Dr.) Adedapo Adewale Tejuoso above all things, to extend this hand of fellowship to other monarchs across the land, beckoning on them to â&#x20AC;&#x153;come and let us worship him.â&#x20AC;? The invitation cuts across traditional institution, religious background, government and non-governmental agencies alike. It is a forum for one thing that is common to all - the praise and worship of him to whom all is due. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Kings Day of Praise was divinely initiated. One or two people had been bringing the idea to me for some time. Then one day I received +      and up till this moment, I have not met that person.

Evangelist Ebenezer Obey who had been doing this for God over the years was there; a king from Bayelsa State and I were there too. God wanted us to embrace Nigeria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I spoke that God has given this vision and that the vision we intend to carry out. I said as far as I was concerned, if this thing worked out, to God be the glory. But if it does not work, God will hold all of you responsible. We must continue to be together. On the success so far of this annual event, Kabiyesi replied: â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far so good.

Taking your wife to orgasm

Campus love: A test

T

hese days, most women want orgasms. That wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always the case. A couple of generations or so ago, many adult females simply didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have climaxes and a lot of them werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bothered about it. Probably a lot of them didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually know what an orgasm was. Some doctors claimed that for a huge proportion of women, it was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;normalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to have no experience of orgasm. Indeed, as late as the 1970s, there were still some who maintained that the female orgasm didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist and was simply a myth made up by the media. But all that has changed now. These days, medical opinion is that every woman should be able to have orgasms â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if she wants to. Furthermore, the view of most sex experts is that the majority of women are capable of multiple orgasms â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if they wish to have them. In general, the ability to have multiple orgasms is greater in more matured women. What is female orgasm? & $/ +   the assumption that you (the reader) are male. But what follows will be of interest to a lot of female readers too. What happens in a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body during a climax is very like what happens in the male body when he ejaculates. In other words, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a feeling of increasing excitement, building up to a point where everything â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;blowsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in a great blast of ecstasy. This â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;orgasmic momentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is characterised by surges of contractions in the sex organs, occurring almost every 0.8 seconds. Men are well aware that these throbs of pleasure are accompanied by the pumping out of spurts of seminal  %@*   // in women. A few females do produce some     /  given in so many erotic stories that most women â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ejaculateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is not correct. Only a minority of females do this. Multiple Orgasms &       male and female orgasm is this: After    $   â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;comeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; again, often within a minute or two. This ability is extremely rare in males. Relatively few young women can achieve multiple orgasms, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an ability that usually has to be learned. But with the help of a skilled lover, most women can eventually achieve the capacity for multiple orgasms â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if they so desire. Bringing your woman to climax For men, perhaps the most important thing to realise about female climaxes is that with women, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a mechanical thing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as it generally is with men. You see, most males will ejaculate quite quickly if they have their penises rubbed. This applies even if the circumstances arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very romantic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or even if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t particularly like the person whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing the rubbing!

Also, it will make you two to be focused. Most couples that I have seen met in the university.â&#x20AC;? This is the standpoint of Tayo Vera-Cruz, a sociologist. Most young people (ladies especially) fantasize about meeting their dream man on campus. Quite a number of people during the 70s through to the 90s met their spouses on campus. Campus life is hard to adjust to. Engaging in relationships on campus is /+      >% !/   / <  } instead of warming you, they get out of control, and burn you badly.

Their excuse usually is that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough time to commit or that they are just trying to focus on their education. They forget that pre-marital sex and partying takes up a lot of time as wellâ&#x20AC;?, said Hope Bako, a University of Benin

Growing up in certain families in our society, the expected trend is education, marriage and then, children. For Bunmi Idowu, an accountant, this trend worked for her.

Vero Imhade also concurs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got married to my campus love and seven other couples that are my friends got married to their campus loves as well.

I mean, my husband and I were friends with the other 14, and we knew one another right from campus. We still know of others that are also planning their wedding. So I think it depends on the people involved, and how mature they are to handle the relationshipâ&#x20AC;?, she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My former room-mate and I also married our campus lovers. Also my wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roommate got married to her campus love. I must comment though        my last, and only lover before I left school. Campus romance still works, but it depends on the individualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disposition,â&#x20AC;? Okezie said. However, the complexities of the campus make it almost impossible for these relationships to blossom into marriage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once in a blue moon, campus relationships end up well.

ow will your families cope and accommodate each other? Who decides what religion your child is raised in him or you? Do you want your child to have a Muslim name? How will you cope with him during Ramadan? If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support his religion, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t love him, so move on â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wunmi If both of you are serious Christians or Muslims, it might be easy at the initial stage when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the two of you. But what happens when you have children: where will they worship, what kind of music will they listen to; will you let your daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head be shaved when born, who will they hang out with, family members visiting, etc. These are some of the things you need to consider and decide on. It is not the easiest of things except you both are free thinkers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Oye You cannot fully bring up your kids in a certain way except you have the same religious view with their dad â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Azeez

It depends on how strong your walk with Christ Jesus is. Religion is not just a belief. It is a way of life or a way of living. The Islamic faith permits a man to marry up to four wives. Can you bear sharing your husband and home with other women? I personally cannot be joined one with someone who is not a believer of Christ Jesus. My bible tells me not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers. Marriage is for better, for worse. Depending on how strong a believer he is in his faith, he might demand that the children be raised as Muslims or that you convert to Islam. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, that might be the beginning of the end of your marriage. Is that what you want? You think marriage is like boyfriend/ girlfriend relationship? Marriage is not a joke, and definitely not for the faint hearted â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Chidinma How many men marry the lady or ladies they once dated? Dating allows you to figure out whether the person is compatible for you or not. Not all relationships are meant to lead to the altar.

Differences in religious beliefs can cause a rift in a marriage, especially if the couple in question is staunch believers of their respective religious beliefs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tobechi Religion has existed for so long, and it is now that we are segregating ourselves and saying I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do this with another human. Does his religion make him evil? There are some terrible Christians out there that will hide their characters and even your pastor will support the marriage, then he starts showing his real self. My eldest sister was actually in this situation. She once knew a guy as a friend some years back, and after many bad relationships with different Christian guys whom my mum liked, this guy came back, and they fell in love.   >Â&#x2021;   !!Â&#x201E; Â&#x2C6;%#  opposed it like a plague, even quoting the scriptures, but my

sister was adamant and went ahead, got pregnant and had a kid for this Muslim guy. Now, they are happy. The guy is really nice and my mom now likes him, but the deal they had was that he should allow her worship as a Christian and not interfere which he agreed. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so happy together. He says his prayers can be answered anywhere â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Faith Most of what is written in the bible in is in the Quran. The only thing thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different between the two religion is their form of worship and the language they used in interacting with God when praying â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Musa For me, that is hypocrisy of the highest level. It is what I call a religiously mixed marriage i.e Christian/Muslim. They say you love each other, but each partner believes that the other is going to spend eternity in hell.

Victoria, First of all, it is important to be aware of your own feelings: how you feel about your partner; how comfortable you feel in his presence; what does and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel comfortable or desirable in terms of physical closeness or sexual contact. Trust your gut feelings. Ensure you communicate what you really want,

sexually. Express what you enjoy and also what you are not comfortable with. Also let him know what your limits are. Be prepared to defend your limits. If you mean â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Noâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, then say â&#x20AC;&#x153;No,â&#x20AC;? and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give mixed messages.

I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cope with break-ups

I

am a 25-year-old lady and like most other people, I hate ending relationships. Breaking up with boyfriends never seems to go well. I just broke up with another one. What do I do? Maria, Lekki

Maria, Saying goodbye is one the most avoided and feared human experiences. There are no rituals for ending relationships or saying goodbye to people we love. So we are often unprepared for the variety of feelings we experience in the process. When you are breaking

up, allow yourself to feel the sadness, anger, fear and pain associated with an ending. Denying those feelings or keeping them inside will only prolong them. Guilt, self-blame and bargaining are human defenses against feeling out of control and feeling unable to stop the other person from leaving us. But there are some endings we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control because we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control another personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behaviour. Give yourself time to heal and be kind to yourself for the duration; pamper yourself, ask for support from others and allow yourself new experiences and friends.

Messi seeks ultimate prize

A

fter a spectacular haul of trophies with Barcelona, Lionel Messi, has a chance to lead Argentina to glory on the World Cup stage and build on his reputation as one of the all-time greats. The four-time World Player of the Year has won a glittering array of club silverware and has established himself as one of the  

   the game, but some believe he must win the World Cup before he can be hailed as a true great.

Many others believe, at the age of 26 - he turns 27 during the tournament on 24 June - he already has. Messi is inevitably compared with Diego Maradona, who inspired the nation to victory at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, and will travel to Brazil with considerable expectation on his shoulders. A lot will depend on how well he copes with the pressure and whether he shrugs

igerians are ingenious and entrepreneurial, and will make $    % portunity, morbid and all. When Abacha wanted to succeed himself as civilian President, one-million man-march millionaires emerged. Few of them believed he was the best man to be civilian President, or that it was right for a military man to suppress all opposition, so that he would be the only person on the ballot. But many young men and not-so- young X  Â?       â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;spuriousâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; support for the man. Indeed, many of them were on the streets dancing when he passed away suddenly. Now that campaigns for 2015 are about to begin, many quasi and shadow political groups are emerging with all sorts of names. Many are in it for the money and nothing more. They neither truly believe in the quality of the candidates they pretend to support, nor do they really care if the guys win or not, as long  %! " $   '%  $      " "   $  "  have all kinds of groups mushrooming to be supporters. The situation is pathetic in the states where these groups make even a poorly performing governor feel he is the best in the world, not only in Nigeria. Many of these political jobbers have dusted their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;business plans,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and are now busy recruiting their team members while searching for their clients. The season is coming into full bloom soon. I advise our politicians to be careful and discerning, to separate the wheat from the tare. '     lucrative is arranging groups to pray at seasons of Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; calamities or misfortunes. Some men and women, but mostly women, who claim to be Christians and Muslims gather in public places and pretend to be praying, with television cameras focused on them. Most of their prayers - which I call â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;politicalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; prayers do not go up to the ceiling. They are just political shows and drama. The reasons I make this assertion are evident. First, the arranger or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;arrangeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of such political prayer session knows very clear in his or her mind, that it is not about God answering any prayers. It is just to score political points, so that Nigerians will see him or her as being concerned about the Nigerian situation. For some, it is a way of attracting funding for their NGOs. Secondly, the motley crowd that gather to pray in the public have not been to any church or any such proper praying or worship centre for a long time. In fact, many are either traditional worshipers or damn right pagans. Others are deviants or perverts who neither fear God nor man, and are fully aware that God does not hear the prayers of sinners except the prayer of repentance. Thirdly, a few who genuinely pray, and who are either true Christians or Â&#x20AC;     % canceling each other. So that, at the end of the highly advertised prayer sessions, nothing really happens in the spiritual

Nigeria, political prayers & politicisation of Chibok girls realm; the hand of God is not moved because the prayer of the unrighteous is an abomination to the Lord. Only righteousness exalts a nation. Now in the last few weeks, since Boko Haram kidnapped over 200 school girls from Chibok, many ingenious Nigerians are at it again, seeking every opportunity X        this national calamity. All kinds of groups have sprung up campaigning for the release of the Chibok girls. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;BringBackOurGirlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; , â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Rescue Our Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Return Our Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Send Home Our Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; all over the country, some all over the world, except in Chibok where the girls were kidnapped or in the Sambisa Forest where they are believed to be held. Many wear red colours, some black, others purple. What a spectacle! Some have sworn that they would not stop demonstrating or gathering in strategic places until the girls return home. Some groups are already at the United Nations in New York, and in other major cities campaigning for funds to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bring back our girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. With due respect to the few who genuinely are concerned about the rescue of the girls, some of these shows are getting me worried. I am for free speech, free association and all about human and peoplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rights. But what really do we intend to achieve with some of these political rallies and the crocodile tears. Some of these are beginning to sound partisan to me, and look camou!"    Yes, people can gather for a day or two to express grief over what has befallen our nation, especially since Dr. Goodluck Jonathan was elected President against all odds. Even, we can show our dissatisfac-

tion with the perceived slow or sleight response of the government to the brutality of the Boko Haram terrorists since the siege stated immediately after the 2011 elections. But to insist that we will not do any other work except to gather at public places and recite poems and address the local and international media is beginning to sound like a political campaign to me. Is it all about 2015? And when the forces raise security concerns and propose preemptive actions to avoid any calamities arising from these

I thought we should be demonstrating against Boko Haram insurgents that have killed over 1,500 innocent Nigerians since this year. Who are we really angry at? I thought we should be angry at the sponsors of Boko Haram, those who had threatened that this nation would be ungovernable if they were not allowed to rule; those whose faces or proxies we see at the town squares shedding crocodile tears

campaign meetings, people refuse to see any merit. Perhaps they want to complicate the matter for the government in power. Now that the bombers are visiting football viewing centers and looking for where people gather for any reason, more so at gatherings that somehow seem critical of their actions, is not reasonable that the Police should be concerned? One of the greatest criticisms of our security forces in all this is that they seem not to Â?        mechanism, and seem to have failed to avert many of the attacks. Now they say they have intelligence report that some people are planning to use the campaign gatherings of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bring back our girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to wreak havoc, and we choose to go to court to enforce our human rights than cooperate with the security experts. ^%Â&#x201C;   "   evidence to condemn the security forces    Â?    "$  that the government cannot protect its citizens? To be sure, who are we demonstrating against? We seem to be acting as if the girls are locked inside Aso Rock or inside the Police Headquarters. I thought we should be demonstrating against Boko Haram insurgents that have killed over 1,500 innocent Nigerians since this year. Who are we really angry at? I thought we should be angry at the sponsors of Boko Haram, those who had threatened that this nation would be ungovernable if they were not allowed to rule; those whose faces or proxies we see at the town squares shedding crocodile tears. Yes, we are entitled to be disappointed with our government for not preventing these calamities or for acting slowly, but is it not apparent that the government is doing all it can? It appointed a National Security Adviser that has the credentials to deal with the problem. It was asked to change the military chiefs and it did. It was asked to appoint an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;opponentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; minister of Defence and it did. It was suggested that it should ask for international support and it has. Today, we have Americans, French, English, Arab, Israelis, Australians and all manner of international people assisting us in the battle against Boko Haram. We all want the girls back alive, and we seem to be pressuring the government to take precipitous actions that may jeopardise the realisation of that wish. I am not holding brief for the government, but as a responsible and patriotic Nigerian, I must state that the odds seem to weigh heavily against this government. Some very spectacular things that are being accomplished in the economy seem to be eclipsed by the security challenge in the country, which was predicted. If we are truly concerned, maybe we should be demonstrating that those who predicted this scenario should be asked to explain what they know. That could be the beginning of the end of the insurgency. But to over- dramatize our desire to have our girls return safely or to seek undue political relevance or visibility or to shed crocodile tears or to gather marabouts to pray will not do it. Believe me!
