How Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defection ruffled Atiku, Nyakoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambitions Owolabi Adenusi, Yola

A

nxiety of the unknown may have gripped former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and his supporters in Adamawa State as it is said that they are working towards Plan B to realise their political dream following the recent defection by the former Military Administrator of Lagos and Borno states, Brigadier General Buba Marwa (rtd) and his supporters in the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which altered their political calculations and permutation ahead of the 2015 general elections. The political think thank of the Turaki Adamawa has begun reviving the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM) ahead of the 2015 general elections, believing that the APCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political fortune is dwindling  @      ambition to produce the next governor of the state. Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return to the PDP has gingered other APC chieftains which Saturday Newswatch gathered may defect from the APC. Indication to this emerged during the week when former governor Boni Haruna â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;wooedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the deputy gubernatorial candidate of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria in the 2012 general election, Alhaji Abdulraman Namidaz, and his supporters to the PDP. Saturday Newswatch gathered that Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defection to the PDP has created a crack in the APCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wall, which has made some pundits to raise questions whether the APC could make any head way in the 2015 general elections. Marwa, who contested under the banner of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in the last gubernatorial poll in Adamawa State, got the nod of his supporter to dump the APC for the PDP, thus ending months of speculation over Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disenchantment with his former party since Governor Murtala Nyako was given control of the party in the state. The stage now appears set for Marwa to join the PDP after his supporters at a town hall meeting at Lelewal Hotel, Yola, last Sunday overwhelmingly supported his return to the party. Marwa is known in Adamawa State as the gateway to the PDP because of the prominent role he played in salvaging the party from the former Vice President during the crisis between him and former President Olusegun Obasanjo. Since then, Atikuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s men could no longer trust Marwa who they see as a man that worked against their principalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presidential ambition. Saturday Newswatch further gathered that Atiku is yet to forgive Marwa for

the alleged role he played. Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supporters that were not comfortable with Nyako and Atiku in the APC lamented that they would not have left the PDP for the CPC in 2012, if the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s structure was not given to Nyako. Their view was declared at the recent town hall meeting where Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supporters  J     '     over 4,000 delegates drawn from the 21 local government areas of the state saying: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want APC and can no longer stay in the house called APC with anti-democratic elements.â&#x20AC;? Marwa had asked his supporters at the meeting whether they should return to the PDP, and majority of those present stood up to chorus a deafening â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want APC.â&#x20AC;? Marwa, in his opening remark, had told the gathering that the meeting would put paid to the lies, deceit and lack of justice within the APC. Berating the party for its sudden lack of integrity and character, Marwa traced the problem that has beset the party to its national leadership in foisting Nyako on the party.  JK J   9      they helped build had been taken over by political buchaneers also wondered why state legislators and National Assembly members in the state were yet to follow Nyako to his new party. Several speakers who took turns at the meeting included Saad M.C Tahir, a former member of the House of Representatives who noted that many irregularities made the APC an aberration that is headed for imminent collapse. According to Tahir, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a house built on a shaky foundation will not stand.â&#x20AC;? He said the PDP has already formed the government in Adamawa State with the movement of Marwa into its fold. Hajia Larai Marwa, a prominent female supporter of Marwa, likened their sojourn in the APC to the National Youth Service Corps, a euphemism for â&#x20AC;&#x153;their labour to develop the APC,â&#x20AC;? urging APC supporters to return to the PDP. Musa Bubakari Kamale, Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loyalist           + 9 of the APC, in his remarks faulted the national leadership of the APC over the crisis brewing within the party, saying its national hierarchy  9  % 2  Ă&#x192; by its decision to foist the defecting PDP governors as leaders of the APC in Adamawa and those states whose governors defected to the APC. The parting of ways between Marwa and the APC, according to Kamale who doubles as Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesperson, was to protest the =           2@   lame-duck leadership foisted on the party by @ J    J      agenda. Listing the alleged sins of the APC in Adamawa, Kamale cited the continued existence of a task force allegedly controlled by Nyakoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son - Commander Abdulaaziz Continued on Page 16

How Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defection ruffled Atiku, Nyakoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambitions Continued from Page 15

which he described as an aberration. According to him, going by party rules, upon the inauguration of the Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S Interim Management + 9 J   K  other organs of the party prior to the merger stood dissolve, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;that is not the case.â&#x20AC;? Marwa equally promised his supporters that he would be meeting with the leadership of         necessary for them to rejoin his former party as a team. However, the defection of Marwa and Engr. Markus Gundiri to the PDP has created panic in Atikuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s camp, which might force him to revive his PDM. Saturday Newswatch further gathered that most of Atikuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loyalists have advised him not to collapse the PDMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s structure into the APC, but should instead sponsor a candidate through the PDM to vie       '  # Atikuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supporters were of the view that Nyako would assist their principal to realise his political ambition in the APC as the party structure has been handed over to him (Nyako) by the APC national leaders. However, Nyako has faulted Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defection to the PDP. He alleged that Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group had approached him severally for money and that it had equally contacted Atiku for money. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe their defection to the PDP was perhaps as a result of assurances from their patrons in Abuja that they will partake in the largesse supposedly being distributed by the Presidency,â&#x20AC;? he alleged. Nyako made this known through his Director, Press and Publicity, Hon. Ahmad Sajoh, in a statement titled: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Real reason Marwa left the APC.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Nyako claimed that Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s    ' @ 9 consequence since he has virtually no electoral value as a man who contested the governorship of the state on the platform of the CPC and could not even win his electoral ward let alone a local government. According to the Nyakoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesman, it is not what Marwa said that provided the real insight into his defection with his supporters, adding that rather, it is what was said by one of his lieutenants that gave an idea of the real reason for their defection. The statement said the treasurer of the State Interim Working + 9    0+K 0 ž Kamale, gave two reasons why Adamawa people should support them in their new found platform of the PDP, and that it is based on the assurance given to them in Bauchi

that everything would be done to ensure that the PDP wins the gubernatorial election in Adamawa State. The spokesman said Kamale explained to the gathering that the President had control over the Army, Police, State Security Service, Independent National Electoral Commission, and its chairman,   09   K  that he would deploy all to take Adamawa State in 2015. The statement further stated that since they accepted Nyako as the leader of the APC, no money was given to them, suggesting that their only reason for accepting Nyakoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership of the APC was to feather their economic nests. It added that Marwa and his group do not believe in the power of the             9Ă   they believe more in the possible manipulative tendencies of the Federal Government and that their exit from the APC was a welcome development. In a swift reaction, Marwa who spoke through Hon. Kamale, said Nyako is a desperate politician who wants to install his son as the next governor of the state. Marwa said thiat in a statement signed by his spokesman. The statement was titled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Real Reason Marwa left APC: A Rejoinder.â&#x20AC;? The statement read in part: â&#x20AC;&#x153;My 9  2  J     release with the above caption. Initially, I did not want to react to the issues raised in the jaundiced, ill-motivated and myopic write up, but for the gross misrepresentation of facts and quoting me completely out of context. I did not expect anything less from the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesman who has turned himself into a campaign manager for the gubernatorial ambition of Governor Nyakoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son, Abdul Azizi Nyako.â&#x20AC;? According to the statement, Marwa was surprised when Alhaji Sajoh appointed himself as his spokesperson and issued a statement on the real reason Marwa left the APC.

But one thing is crystal clear, that he (Sajoh) did not have the capacity to write for or on behalf of Marwa,â&#x20AC;? Kamale said in the statement. The statement explained further that on March 30, Marwa with thousands of his supporters had a meeting in Lelewa Hotel, Yola, and not a press conference as Sajoh would want the public to believe, adding that it was a meeting where

everyone who wanted to speak was allowed to express their views. At the end of the meeting, a resolution was reached to dump the APC for the PDP, the statement added. The spokesman explained that if the real reason for the defection did not hold water for the government, it made a lot of sense to the     J  9 the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alhaji Sajoh wants the general public to buy his ill-motivated assertion that General Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political value was nil because of the results of the 2012 gubernatorial election.

This is despite the huge resources deployed in the election at the expense of Adamawa citizens. If anything, this is minus 50 per cent electoral value for Sajohâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boss,â&#x20AC;? the statement added. Kamale said contrary to the picture Sajoh painted, he gave nine reasons for the defection of Marwaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supporters from the APC to the PDP as follows (1) Non-dissolution and continued operation of the so called      Ă Âť  ''                @Ă Âż &      9 as one-man show by Kobis Ari   Ă Ă&#x2026; ž    materials by council chairmen, using  Ă < 09      secretary of the State Registration + 9K "

Kamale said to his utmost surprise, Sajoh was trying to twist the fundamental issues he raised but took the two example he cited concerning the Bauchi rally of the PDP where a declaration was made by the PDP stakeholders to recapture Adamawa State., and the siphoned millions of naira in the name of the party caretaker  9  J   J   treasurer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a fact that since J      9 J  inaugurated, not a single kobo went through the state treasurer to execute any programme despite the fact that millions of Naira were being siphoned in the name of party    9KĂ&#x192;  # â&#x20AC;&#x153;I stand to be corrected but those are what I said at the meeting. It is really sadistic and demeaning for a          and put words into my mouth. I am not an all in all like him and neither can claim to speak on behalf of anybody but myself. Otherwise, how can a sane and rational person use examples given as reasons for a particular course of action as the main issues. I really feel pity for him in the manner he wants to please his master(s). â&#x20AC;&#x153;In trying to conclude his concoctions and wild allegations in the press release, Sajoh made spurious assumptions and conclusions which cannot and do not belong to anybody but himself. All the innuendoes and permutation  ÂťĂ&#x201E;:<      ž  imagination,â&#x20AC;? Kamale stated. On the issue of demanding money from the governor and former Vice President Atiku, Kamale threw a challenge at Sajoh to make proofs available about when, how much and venue where Marwa or his representative made an approach for such assistance either in cash or kind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personally, I feel sorry for the APC and Adamawa State in the hands of Sajoh and his boss simply because of their impunity, desperation for power, ignominy and undemocratic culture,â&#x20AC;? Kamale said. Political pundits are of the view that things would no longer be the same in the APC because of the power tussle going on in the party, the defections of some key players, coupled with Atikuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supportersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; moves to look for other platform for their survival if eventually their interest is not protected in the ongoing state congresses. Time shall tell if really things have fallen apart in the Adamawa State APC.

South West is not APC zone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Omisore Ahead of the August 9 governorship election in Osun State, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has told Saturday Newswatch that it is a great misnomer to suggest that the South West zone is an exclusive region for the All Progressives Congress (APC). Expressing optimism at the chances of the PDP in the state, the former deputy governor insisted that but for the courts, the APC would not have made in-road into the zone.

Boko Haram: Jonathan, Akpabio take fight to sectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s domain Nankpah Bwakan, Bauchi

I

nitially, it was rumoured that President Goodluck Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit to Bauchi State for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) North East unity rally might have been cancelled but when eventually he appeared, the crowd was ecstatic. Millions of party supporters from the North East geo-political zone came out as early as 7am to witness the rally at the Tafawa Balewa Stadium in Bauchi; though President Jonathan and his entourage arrived at about 2pm. Prior to his arrival, both the opposition and some PDP members had cast doubt on the possibility of the presidential visit, alleging that it might have been cancelled for fear of Boko Haram. When President

Others were the Governor of Kaduna State, Alhaji Mukhtar Ramalan Yero; Deputy Governors of Sokoto State, Alhaji Muktar Shagari, that of Adamawa State, Alhaji Bala Ngilar; and Mr. Ignatius Longjan, of Plateau State. There were also ministers from the region, led by that of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Alhaji Bala Mohammed; Youth Development and former Governor of Adamawa State, Mr. Boni Haruna; Zanab Miana of     0 Ă     K of State for Niger Delta, as well as Mohammed Wakili, of State for Power. President Jonathan and Governor Akpabio who were visibly elated at seeing the large crowd, started the show by descending hard on the Boko Haram sect and their perceived sponsors. Chairman of the PDP Governorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Forum who is also the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Akpabio, went down memory lane to the days of the Niger Delta militants who eventually accepted dialogue and amnesty was     2@      Umaru Yarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Aduaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, adding that they laid down their arms in support of the administration. He therefore appealed to the Boko Haram sect operating in the North East to lay down their arms in support of President Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2015 Presidency ambition. He said the militants in the Niger  J          @    from previous administrations and oil companies operating in the region; but that they accepted the amnesty pact and laid down their arms in support of late President Yarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Adua. According to him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;this is the time for the North East region to also support the Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presidency just as our youths did to late President Yarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Adua.

Senator Abdul Ningi, representing Bauchi North zone, decried the backwardness of the North East region, saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;we in the North East are in pains and we need your (President Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) kind intervention to restore normalcy in the region and make life enjoyable to us as it is in the South South region.â&#x20AC;?

He appealed for urgent measures by the Presidency, states and local governments as well as stakeholders from the region to end the insergency in the region. Apparently endorsing Akpabioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called on the Boko Haram sect to lay down arms in support of the present administration , President Jonathan chided the governors of the troubled Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states - Murtala Nyako, Alhaji Kashim  9   2     ' the insecurity in the states. But the three governors had blamed the emergence of the Boko Haram sect which have been holding sway in the North East, killing innocent Nigerians at will, on the Federal Government, accusing it of bad leadership. In his response, President Jonathan urged them to realise that as a deputy and governor of Bayelsa State, he had handled the issue of kidnapping which was then the talk of the town '@   @# After berating the governors, the President vowed that the PDP would surely reclaim Adamawa State and win in Borno and Yobe states, adding that the insecurity was as a result of     '      get their children and youths to enrol in primary and secondary schools that eventually resulted in the emergence of insecurity. According to him, despite the failure on the side of the governors to encourage school enrolment,

President Jonathan said the security challenges in the North East is the product of illiteracy on the side of youths that have lost hope due to bad leadership on the part of the governors that does not see the importance of sending children to schools. He said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are facing some issues today because of bad leadership; this security challenges is caused by lack of education by those children that did not go to primary and secondary schools and they are recruited by criminals that use them to foment trouble.â&#x20AC;? He added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel disappointed when a governor who has spent eight @                9    @  secondary schools could blame the Federal Government for insurgents. The duty of the Federal Government is to ensure that all states have a university each which we have done in the last four years.

According to the President, â&#x20AC;&#x153;state governors should be ashamed when our children do not go to primary and secondary schools and instead go on to carry arms. We had security challenges in Bayesla State when I was deputy governor and we handled them. It is not the duty of the Federal Government to enrol children into primary and secondary schools but it is the constitutional right of the Federal Government to make sure children 9   @  J  J have done.â&#x20AC;? He emphasised that â&#x20AC;&#x153;governors must make sure our children go to schools. State governors that do not send their children to schools and if such children end up carrying arms , such governors should be ashamed to talk of bad leadership. We are into this madness because people refuse to do their work and people carry arms and engage in insurgency.â&#x20AC;? President Jonathan assured that the insecurity in the North East would soon be surmounted. His words: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We must bring this problem - whether Boko Haram in the North, militancy in the South or armed robbery in the South West - to a level where Nigerians can move freely; we must get to where we are going; we must, as a government bring the ugly situation to an end.â&#x20AC;? Apparently referring to the defection of the Adamawa State Governor, Nyako, from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress, President Jonathan said the PDP must retain the state and all the states in the North East in the forthcoming general elections. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody will take away our states from us; we will surly reclaim Adamawa State; Adamawa is for the PDP,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that â&#x20AC;&#x153;we will take over Borno and Yobe states. The North East zone belongs to the PDP and the PDP is the party to beat in 2015 in the North East.â&#x20AC;? Nyako said only President Jonathan has control over security apparatus. His words: â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to state categorically that if there is any proof of bad governance, it will be located in the way and manner the President executes his priorities and the kind of statements he and his spokespersons make. Governors are not and cannot be held responsible for security challenges since they have no control over security apparatus. The President is the Commander-in-Chief with powers over the Armed Forces, Police and other security agencies.â&#x20AC;? Governor Nyako in a statement signed by his aide said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our 9  2  J   statement credited to the President, Commander-in-Chief, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, at the North East PDP rally in Bauchi on Saturday 29th   K ÂťĂ&#x201E;:Ă&#x2026;K       2 governance by the governors of the region is responsible for all the security challenges in the region. He also alluded to the establishment of universities in his response to the security concerns, and why the governors failed to provide primary and secondary education. He asked questions in relation to good governance and claimed that he ended militancy in Bayelsa State. For a President of this potentially great country to make these kinds of contradictory and outright false statements is indeed unfortunate.â&#x20AC;?

is: does it mean the conference as presently constituted cannot enjoy legitimacy? The answer is a simple, No. The legitimacy problem earlier mentioned is a curable defect. The cure for the defect is to organise a referendum, through which the      $   imprimatur to the resolutions emanating from the conference by a simple majority of YES votes over the NO votes. When such resolutions have gone through the crucible of the legitimacy test, decisions therefore are said to be inviolable and ipso facto SOVEREIGN.

The defects touching and concerning their election are thereby cured. The people have spoken, conferred legitimacy, hitherto unavailable, on the resolutions of the delegates. Emanating from the foregoing is the absolute need for the conference to call for resolutions from members of the public to form part of the research materials that the delegates will consider before arriving at the resolutions that will form the road map for the Nigeria of our dream. A country where there will be peace, progress, growth and development, justice, equity, peace, order and good government, where even and equal opportunities will be available to all, where the greatest good will be available to the greatest number, freedom for all and life more abundant.

Why Abba Moro should get Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boot Onyiorah Chiduluemije Paschal

t is understandable that President Goodluck Jonathan has somehow stepped in to begin the process of mitigating the terrible situation occasioned by the actions or inactions of the Honourable Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro, yet one is taken aback by the fact that up till now, the President has not deemed it necessary to show him the way out of his cabinet.

Egypt should learn from its faults By Emmanuel Omoh Esiemokhai

A

s General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi relinquishes military power, in anticipation of winning political power, he may discover that things are easier said than done. He may also find out that power exudes only from the barrel of the gun. Sisi may recall in nightmarish circumstances, how he saluted Morsi, and how he deposed him in coup. The convoluted hays over Egypt are expected by some, to clear in a SISIPARIAN democracy after the election next month. To succeed, Sisi must learn from everyone, including the Muslim Brotherhood. You cannot defeat an enemy you do not understand. Listen to the fool you may learn something. The wise is the one who has learnt from everyone. Egyptians are wise people. They have embraced scholarship and righteousness since ancient times. They have done great things that we can see. The impatience with their leaders, stem from the quest for excellence in statecraft. They do not think that they should be put under moronic leaders, who do not know what governance is all about except to distribute posts, create avenues for their fellow morons to grow rich through pretence, intrigue and subterfuges The only thing that Egyptians learn from history is that they do not learn and they forget very quickly. At the Elihu School of Prophecy, we were thought that shiny epaulet democracy will always fail in Egypt because they are thinkers of the highest

degree. Since the White Nile and the Blue Nile must flow only one way downwards, peaceful reign, not rule by force will succeed in Egypt. Days after Sisi announced his intention to seek presidential mandate, Obama visited the Pope with no army, except bodyguards. Russia has always faced isolation since the Second World War, though partly selfimposed. Putin is re-possessing Ukraine and some Ukrainians are fleeing to Russia, as a result of misgovernment and monumental corruption, which is driving many Africans to early deaths in the Ionian seas and in Lampaducea in Italy. AU leaders have looked the other way. What a Shame!

In Nigeria, governance is neglected, and as soon as 2015 is in the pocket, without performance, 2020 will be canvassed and the moronic culture will continue. God to whom we appeal has given us the best brains, mineral resources, human resources. Yet, the Holy Temple of St. Peter is assailed by inane supplications and hope against hope. As we suffer from the absence of basic amenities, we cannot receive apologies from people, who have power always, water always, are loaded with public funds, celebrate mental and cultural enslavement, doll out meaningless and puerile statements, that induce laughter and ridicule. Yet, the democratic process is ridiculed and not

exalted. When a pygmy is saddled with a heavy load, he must obviously discharge some weight because those who hope to benefit from the content will urge him on, telling him that he is doing a ‘’good” job. Sisi will not lead Eygpt on the path of irreverent musings. We have seen a lot of spilled Egyptian blood. In the name of decency, let there be moderation. Sisi must discard lying compliments and embrace sincere criticism. In my recent article entitled, ONE WORLD ONE TRUTH, I debunked the heavily canvassed dogma that the truth is always in the mouth of the strong. As Sisi quits the army, he will soon see how easily the people will look the other way and will smile to the new real leader. He will learn that there are many virtuous people with mean minds, and where authority abides, that is where the honey is. Is Sisi’s rule going to be Heroine, Herodian, Nassarite, Anwar Sadat style, Pharaoic, just, democratic and humane or like that of Caligula of Rome? The choice is his. Egyptians should pray from the top of the pyramids for God’s intervention because their future seems uncertain. We are tired of the rule of man-made gods, who are under influences to sacrifice the sons and daughters of God in their frenzied political squabbles. Professor Dr. Emmanuel Omoh Esiemokhai is Professor of International Law. He wrote from Geneva.

Celebration of vanity, African’s past-time By Olaniyi Olayemi

Continued from last week I doubt also if he knows that several indigenes of the Niger-Delta are still facing the malevolence of oil spills which have polluted their fluvial habitat. As harrowing as the 2012 United Nation Environmental Programme (UNEP) report on Ogoni was, one would expect a sensitive government to spontaneously act on it. Two years after, it has remained a triangular blame game among the multinationals, Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and the natives. Nothing is seen to have been done for the impoverished Niger-Delta region. Let me shift my focus to other climes. In Zimbabwe, it was recently reported that President Robert Mugabe lavished US$1million 90th on his birthday

party. Just before his 90th birthday, he travelled to Singapore for an eye surgery. I think his medical tourism to Singapore mocks his thirty-years plus administration. It reminds me of Togo’s Nyasimgbe Eyadema who died on his way to Europe for treatment. I wonder how comfortable Mugabe felt voting such huge amount just to mark a 24-hour long birthday when about 18,000 of his compatriots were displaced by flood. For over 30 years, Mugabe’s administration is still battling with maternal and infant mortalities. Indices judge Zimbabwe to be one of the world’s ‘richest’ in maternal mortality! If $1 million was expended into Zimbabwe’s health sector, would that have been too much? Or if it was expended in providing relief materials for the hapless Tokwe-

Mukosi villagers, would that have been too much? In one of his books, Chinua Achebe made a sharp contrast between Kamuzu Banda and Nelson Mandela. The former was portrayed as a sit-tight leader while the latter was extolled for his single-term presidency. My curiosity got the better of me and so, I investigated the good, the bad and the ugly side of Kamuzu’s administration. It is expedient to say that Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world. A columnist once jocularly wrote that he didn’t know if Malawi had an embassy here in Nigeria and even if Malawi did have, he was sure paying for rent would be much of a hell! As incredulous as this assertion might seem, it has an element of truth. Well, I learnt Kamuzu Banda, erstwhile president of

Malawi - in his 31-year rule accumulated at least $320 million! This is disgusting and worthy of condemnation. Again, I’m forced to think how impolitic humans can be. Maybe next time we hear of the financial impropriety of any civil servant or sitting governor or president or law maker or minister or cleric, we should hold our breath from spontaneous condemning comments. It seems a black man is just configured to be rapacious. This has invariably made him a primordial being in the 21st century. Words like “charity” and “compassion” are foreign to him. All day long, all he cares about is how to gratify himself.

Business & Economy Privatised public firms as lame ducks In 1999, former President Olusegun Obasanjoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government established the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), to sell off governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enterprises in partial belief that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;government has no business in business.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; 15 years down the road, the story is still not palatable. JOHNMARK UKOKO reports.

T

he capitalists of the west have so far presented themselves as apostles of â&#x20AC;&#x153;government has no business in businessâ&#x20AC;?. They believe that â&#x20AC;&#x153;government the world over is a bad businessmanâ&#x20AC;? thereby justifying why leaders of third world countries have to sell government enterprises and assets to curry the favour of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank. At inception of democracy in 1999, Obasanjoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government heeded the advice of IMF and World Bank, and sold several of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public enterprises to private investors. @K ž @         @  move from point A to B. A lecturer in the Department of Economics, Lagos State University, Dr. Ola Ojo, gave an insight into why majority of the privatised enterprises have not witnessed major turnaround.

He asked: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you surprised that some of the government companies became J     @ J   '  the private investors? Some of those who emerged winners of the biding processes were by no means the best. Some of the people that the government sold its enterprises to are known to be government supporters.â&#x20AC;? He listed some of the public enterprises   2  J     @ J   as: The Daily Times PLC; Nigeria Airways; Nigeria Fertilizers Company, Onne, Port

Sambo Harcourt; Alaja Steel Company, Warri; Ajaokuta Steel Company, and Jos Rolling Mill. The don added that other companies include Oshogbo Rolling Mills, Ikorodu; Brick and Clay Company; Kano Clay Company; Cement Company of Northern Nigeria; Lagos International Trade Fair Complex and a host of others. Ojo alleged that the privatisation process was compromised by some of the core investors who emerged as the preferred investors. He also alleged that the power-that-be, in most cases, have interest in who emerges J          K adding that on many occasions, those groups favoured by the authorities do not have what it takes to turn the ailing enterprises around. The don also cited the case of Follio Communications Limited that won the Daily Times despite oppositions from the K        @ and various stakeholders. According to him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we have witnessed a situation where government enterprises are handed over to a group, despite petitions of lack of competence by informed.

Business & Economy 55 ships expected to berth at Lagos ports

Decrepit state of trade N fair complexes The Federal Government has assured Nigerians that the country aspires to be one of the top 20 economies of the world by the year 2020. To actualize the vision, trade and commerce play an important role, yet most of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trade Fair complexes are in deplorable situation. JOHNMARK UKOKO, KENNETH OFOMA and CYPRAIN EBELE report.

T

he Federal Government, few years ago, announced Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision of becoming one of the top 20 economies of the world by the year 2020. On April 6, this year, the Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala announced that the country has now emerged the 26th top economy of the world. Trade and Commerce are known the world over as an important instrument to develop any countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy. And bearing that in mind, the concern in business quarters remains: Why is that the same government that aspires to be one of the top economies of the world neglects the various Trade Fair complexes across the country. Nigeria has three international Trade Fair complexes situated in Lagos, Enugu and Kaduna. Investigations revealed that all the Trade Fair complexes - international, domestic and regional - are in deplorable conditions. Speaking recently, Enugu Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (ECCIMA) Dr. Ifeanyi Okoye, bemoaned the condition of the Enugu International Trade Fair Complex, saying lack of permanent structure is the greatest challenge facing his chamber. The ECCIMA boss appealed to the Federal Government to expedite action in providing facilities at the complex, saying whereas Lagos and Kaduna have proper permanent Trade Fair complexes, the same cannot be said of Enugu, adding that it is sad that Enugu Trade Fair complex has been neglected. According to him, it took seven years     9    9  government to commence work at the permanent site of the Trade Fair complex.   J ' @  #  K  much work has been done.

 J Ă? %0 ' @   construction work at the permanent site, @ ' @ 9  2  '  we have continued with our annual ritual of lamentations. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll continue to appeal to the government to hasten work at the permanent site.â&#x20AC;? Investigations at the Kaduna International Trade Fair Complex, along Zaria Road, revealed that while government has provided a permanent site, the complex lacks light, water and good rest places for exhibitors and visitors alike. The same apply to what is obtained in Lagos. Another challenge is the lack of adequate transportation to and fro the fair groung, as exhibitors and visitors have hectic time boarding the few vehicles available. Findings at the Lagos International

Trade Fair in session Trade Fair Complex showed that the inability of the Federal Government and the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) to properly manage the fair complex, made the Federal Government, through its Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) to concession the complex to Aulic Nigeria Limited for a 50 years duration. The arrangement draw the anger of the Lagos Chamber which kicked against the move, as they alleged that Aulic Nigeria Limited lacks the expertise and capability to properly manage the trade fair complex. Eight years after the complex was handed over to the company, all the promises the company made to the government has not been delivered. A development that led the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Dr. Olusegun Aganga, on November 5, 2013 to announce the revocation of the concession granted to Aulic Nigeria Limited. Aganga said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Due to the inability of the company the government gave the concession right to manage the Lagos International Trade Fair Complex properly, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad to announce to you that government has revoked the concession.â&#x20AC;?

Most manufacturers in this part of the country do not join the chamber, because they think the chamber do not pursue their agenda as expected. This has made them not to attend meetings, thereby denying the chamber the funds this company ought to pay. Lack of funds prevents us from solving some bothering issues. Most chambers are not viable

The ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement which was met with wide jubilations and applause from Lagos chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s members, was short lived as Saturday Newswatchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   J   0   Limited went to the presidency to lobby for a policy reverse. Two weeks after, government announced a suspended of its earlier without giving any further information. Five months after however, Lagos chamber and Nigerians await governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pronouncement on the issue. Mainwhile, due to the on-going LagosBadagry road construction, and the myriads of the challenges exhibitors and visitors to Lagos International Trade Fair grapple with every year, the Lagos chamber have relocated the venue of Lagos International Trade Fair to Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS). Our correspondent reports that Anambra and Delta states governmentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lack of support and paucity of funds are impacting negatively in hosting successful domestic fairs in the two states. This fact was disclosed by the former president of Onitsha Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Chief Okechukwu Akaneme, while speaking with Saturday Newwatch recently. He disclosed that Onitsha Chamber of Commerce and Industry tried having a permanent site, meant for use by Nnewi  0J   2  J      of the Onitsha chamber, but were frustrated by the legal tussle over land, and encroachment by some people from Obosi community who claim ownership of the land.

Subsequently, the Anambra  '   '   +  of Ownership, prompting the family to go court, despite the fact that the state government has paid them compensation. Akaneme lamented that state governments do not support the chambers of commerce, adding that government and the chambers ought to work together, by encouraging manufacturers and other businessmen/ women to join the chamber to help them raise the needed funds for the chambers. He said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most manufacturers in this part of the country do not join the chamber, because they think the chamber do not pursue their agenda as expected.         9 meetings, thereby denying the chamber the funds this company ought to pay.

Disappearance of pioneer multinational companies Abiodun Awogbemi

M

ost of the pioneer multinational companies in the country had their roots in colonial rules. They were companies with headquarters overseas, but came mainly as trading companies to facilitate commerce between the British and their colonies. They were practically exploring and exploiting commercial opportunities in their various colonies. Some of the companies include Royal Niger Company, British Petroleum, United African Company (UAC), United Trading Company (UTC), Standard Bank, Barclays Bank, British West African Airline Company (BWAC), ' "   K 9     K +2 @K "  K   K +0&K GB-Olivants Leventis, Bata, Lenardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Phillips, National Panasonic, Binatone, Federal *$ K  K    K Pegasus Oil etc. The companies became the de facto commercial entities that called the shot in Nigeria and other British colonies around the world.

Most of the conglomerates are still in business today after undergoing series of transformation, merger and acquisition while some has gone under.

The companies were used in Commerce text books as examples of departmental stores, but today certain factors including technology and complete decay of infrastructure and political demagogue have completely restricted them to history books. The organised private sector as well as the manufacturers association has in many fora highlighted the major reasons militating against the development of the economy, and reasons foreign direct investment is not

Old Leventis building on Marina possible in the country. One of the factors bedeviling investment in the country today is insecurity which has overwhelmed the entire nation in recent times. This has led to majority of these multinationals which has its production and manufacturing base in Nigeria to relocate to other countries where there is security of lives, property and investment as well as adequate infrastructure such as stable power supply, good road network and water. Other clogs on the wheels that led to the relocation of the multinational companies are unstable economic policies by the government, multiplicity of taxes coupled with the menace of touts popularly called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;area boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and the roles played by the local '      '  K     @          business operation. Power supply is another major problem facing investment in Nigeria as against what was witnessed in pre-independent era.

The EEDC has been milking the people of the area dry through a crazy estimated billing system, hoarding of pre-paid meters while forcing us to pay for service charges of any repair work in the area.

@        Worm Disease (GWD) free country. Guinea worm is prevalent in povertystricken areas and contracted by drinking water from ponds or other unprotected and unsafe water sources. The endemicity of guinea worm in some states of the federation prompted the Federal Government to establish the Nigeria Guinea Worm Eradication Programme (NIGEP) in 1988. Records showed that NIGEP started with 653,620 cases when it started operation in 1988.    '@     &K Ebonyi, Zamfara, Kaduna, Oyo, Enugu and Benue. As a result of interventions in the areas of massive water supply, treatment of ponds and surveillance, the scourge was greatly reduced. According to statistics, in 2005, only 120  J     $ Ă    J  reduction of 99.9 per cent in 16 years. Nigeria did not record any case of guinea worm since 2008, but had to wait for the mandatory period of six years of zero case, 2  2    J  # Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi + JK J       &   to President Goodluck Jonathan, said no case of GWD has been recorded in the country for six years.

Responding, President Jonathan said it J   9  J   with the period the â&#x20AC;&#x153;country is marking its centenary.â&#x20AC;?

Former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon (rtd), whose Yakubu Gowon Centre was a key partner in achieving the feat, said he was amazed to learn about the large number of GWD cases in Nigeria. He said when former U.S. President Jimmy +     ž       GWD, he did not hesitate as he felt a sense of duty to join the campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Carter asked me to join him, and I learnt there were about 800,000 cases of GWD in Nigeria during my time, and I did not do anything, my conscience was pricked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said to myself that I must do anything this team wants me to do to ensure the eradication of this debilitating disease,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mr. Charles Nzuki, UNICEF Assistant Representative, who spoke at the occasion, stressed the need for previously endemic states to step up potable water supply.

 @ urged the Ebonyi State government to increase its budgetary allocation to the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency (RWASSA). Nzuki picked Ebonyi, because the state was hitherto known as the most endemic GWD state in the country. Half of the GWD patients when NIGEP

Nzuki said the appeal became imperative as the focus on rural water supply and sanitation required stronger engagement through community-led provision of safe drinking water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We must lay emphasis on the lessons learnt from our common successful partnership in eradicating guinea worm in the state,â&#x20AC;? he said. According to him, UNICEF believes strongly in forging collaborations with governments           ' and realise their full potential. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We plead that you increase the allocation of resources to the delivery of services at the Primary Health Care (PHC) level, in addition to increased procurement of commodities that help deliver these services to children,â&#x20AC;? he said. As Nigerians celebrates the eradication of GWD in the country, government at all levels should sustain the provision of potable water to the people, especially those in the rural areas. 8#)"#

The Vice-President said available records indicated that the number of Almajiris in the country was more than nine million. %       not only pose a great challenge in the achievement of education for all, it also poses serious      9     development agenda of our great country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any development plan that does not focus on comprehensive and all inclusive education programme will not lead      9    desired social and economic development. ``This is what informed Federal Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to include all Nigerian children in the transformation agenda of the education sector,â&#x20AC;? the VicePresident said. Governor Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe State, on his part, said the percentage of out-of-school children in the state dropped from 78 per cent in 2011 to less than 42 per cent in 2013. Dankwambo stated this recently in Gombe when the Minister of State and Supervising Minister for Education, Mr. Nyeson Wike, visited him. He recalled that the statistics of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in 2011 showed that 78 per cent of children in the state were out of school â&#x20AC;&#x153;But between 2012 and 2013, the number dropped to less than 42 per cent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A state of emergency was declared in the education sector, as the government built and renovated schools to decongest the existing ones, while recruiting š   # %    2 '@ to the development of education in the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will not relent in our  Ă J J   invest in education because it is our number one, two and three priorities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If a society is well-educated, other things will follow,â&#x20AC;? he said.

In 1948, JosĂŠ Figueres Ferrer led an armed uprising in the wake of a disputed presidential election between the previous President, Rafael Ă ngel CalderĂłn Guardia (he served as president between 1940 and 1944) and Otilio Ulate Blanco. With more than 2,000 dead, the resulting 44-day Costa Rican Civil War was the bloodiest event in Costa Rica during the 20th century. The victorious rebels formed a government junta that abolished the military altogether, and oversaw the drafting of a new constitution by a democratically elected assembly. Having enacted these reforms, the junta relinquished its power on November 8, 1949, to the new democratic government. After the coup dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ĂŠtat, Figueres became a national hero, winning the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s          J constitution in 1953.

Youths and challenges of Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s politics Uchenna Nwafor, Yenagoa

N

igeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political history has shown that since her amalgamation in 1914, the country has always been threatened by the problems of ethnicity, religion and political jingoism which became more pronounced immediately after the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s independence in 1960.

=         @K '    29  @   their children for continuity. To this end, Nigerian youths under the aegis of the Nigerian Young Professional Forum (NYPF) last weekend gathered in Yenagoa, the capital of Bayelsa State to discuss ways of solving the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems which they said have continued to hinder the development of the country. In his welcome address, chairman of the forum, Mr. Moses Siasia, described the organisation as a   $   '   of human endeavour who are working together to foster unity and purposeful leadership. He tasked the youths on the acquisition of relevant skills and knowledge to enhance their self worth as well as get involved in the     2 2     desired societal change, adding that there is no other time to contribute their quota towards the development of the nation than now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We must take the challenge as young people to tackle the crisis in our country,â&#x20AC;? he said. The chairman observed that the youths had for a long time allowed elderly people and old politicians to dominate the leadership of the country, insisting that young professionals should rise and take their pride of place in the governance of the country. Enjoining youths not to be contented with criticisms, he noted that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;movers and shakers of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy are youths,â&#x20AC;? describing youths as the key to national development, even as he urged government at all levels to empower young professionals in the country. He noted that the NYPF has been holding summits to sensitise youths on their roles in nation-building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been to the North and South East. Now, we are in the South South. We will spread this message to all the young professionals in the country. They must rise and take their place in nation-building,â&#x20AC;? he said. He said the forum has helped to employ many jobless youths and given scholarships to discovered talents who were wasting their talents because there is nobody to help them, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we will continue to be in the forefront of youth development in partnership with other agencies.â&#x20AC;? Speaking on a topic titled: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The role of young professionals in nation building,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; one of the guest speakers, Prof. Chris Nwokolobia, expressed happiness over the convocation of such conference where issues about the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems are being discussed by youths who are determined to lead the nation, lamenting that same old people have been re-cycling in the Nigerian

politics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we were growing up, we were told that we are the leaders of tomorrow, but now that we are grown, the same old people have continued to hold on to power. But who is to be blamed? We, the youths must rise to the challenge and chart a way out of the giddy-pig giddy that we have found ourselves. We must chart a way out of this problem. We must have a sublime faith in ourselves. The youths must work, work and work. The greatest men on earth became something because they ventured and not because of their parental advantage,â&#x20AC;? Prof. Nwokolobia declared. The young professor who said he has travelled to many countries and lived with the northerners even in Nigeria where he found out how lovely and brotherly an average northerner could be, wondered why religion and ethnicity should divide the country. He urged the youths to disregard all the ill-feelings in their minds and forge ahead as one indivisible entity. According to him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;this is the time  9   @  2 J  because Nigeria is made up of a people with great tendencies, and until we decide to undermine those things that divide us and preach those things that unite us, we cannot    29       # We must not allow ourselves to be divided by religion and ethnicity.

She described young professionals as the most important segment of the labour force, adding that there are so many things the youths in the Diaspora can contribute to the growth of the country especially in politics, skills and even in agriculture, lamenting that Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best brains are being lost to other countries. Her words: â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is need for us in the Diaspora to come in to the country and introduce the experience we acquired outside the country. We can create jobs and alleviate poverty. A large number of us in the Diaspora are disillusioned because we were forced out of the country to go and do things which we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have passion  #        2  drain as the youths are continually migrating to Europe and America.â&#x20AC;? The Nigerian-born London-based legal practitioner posited that what Nigerians are contributing to other countries greatly surpass what they are contributing to Nigeria, reiterating that if they come back to the country, there would be a serious change in the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s polity.

Jonathan She, however, noted that the Federal Government should among other things provide adequate security in the country, adding that a lot of Nigerians in the Diaspora are scared due to the kind of reports they hear about Nigeria especially in the area of security challenges. In all the speeches delivered at the forum, one unique thing among the participants is their passion to develop the country, and the need to continue to exist as one indivisible country.    K  2   analyst, Dr. Katch Ononuju, believes that all the changes in the country would be made without   K      2  the need for peaceful co-existence that President Goodluck Jonathan convoked the ongoing national conference to discourse the problems of the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We must sensitise the youths to take over this country, but we must do it peacefully.

Douye Diri, faulted the critics of the President Jonathan administration and said they are not sincere in blaming the woes of the nation on the Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s style of administration. Dickson said the problems existed before the present administration but that President Jonathan has been tackling them through his transformation agenda. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be unfair for people to expect magic from the President,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that if allowed to implement his transformation agenda fully, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the President would make Nigeria a 29  @#Ă&#x192; Governor Dickson, who described President Jonathan as a detribalised Nigerian, noted that the ongoing national conference is one of the ways intended to solve the many challenges facing the country.

Ekiti kingship tussle and governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attitude to rule of law Bolu-Olu Esho, Abeokuta

T

here is no doubt that the choice of the people usually runs contrary to that of those in the corridor of power. In worse situations, the people in power usurp the power and position of the gods and become the oracle in order to achieve their inordinate ambitions. In the extreme, the verdict of the court of law is set aside while they choose their desired path as if the rule of law does not exist in the land.     29 on the disobedience of an exparte order granted by an Ijero-Ekiti High Court in 2010 that the process of selecting one of the contestants to the vacant stool of the Alara of Aramoko-Ekiti in Ekiti State, Adegoke Olu Adeyemi, ran foul of the dictates of the law and therefore should be suspended until the determination of the substantive case challenging the election, is an example of the impunity with which politicians trample on the authorities of the judiciary. Ekiti State government under the leadership of former Governor Segun Oni had trampled on the judiciary as the motion exparte granted Prince Olusegun Aderemi, a contestant to the stool that the status quo should remain, was ignored and

the other contestant was secretly installed by the administration. The traditional kingmakers in the town had consulted the oracle to determine who among the contestants would usher in unprecedented blessing for the  @     favoured Prince Aderemi. This didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go down well with the administration which had its choice in Prince Adeyemi, a retired permanent secretary from the state civil service. When the kingmakers had completed the selection process, the chairman of Ekiti West Local '   0  2 9   decision to Deputy Governor Sikiru Lawal who was in charge   @ 9  2 J warned not to announce it to the natives who were eager to know the outcome. Having suspected foul play as government was suggesting that a fresh election among the kingmakers he conducted on the selection of the candidates, Prince Aderemi quickly ran to the last arbiter for justice. There were reports then that the deputy governor alleged that the kingmakers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t approve the retired permanent secretary because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Muslim. He was said to have vowed that whether they liked it or not his candidate would be installed. When the news of the exparte motion that ordered the status

It was reported that the kingmakers were consequently intimidated and forced by the government to perform the usual rites required to install Prince Adeyemi secretly and he was given the instruments of         # It is expected that the applicant would have to run to the judiciary to inform it of the impunity with which its exparte motion was treated and pray for justice to be done.

Fani-Kayodeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit to Jonathan rattles APC Mansur Oladunjoye

F

ormer Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, may soon dump his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Saturday Newswatch can authoritatively report. This is because he has started romancing his erstwhile party by visiting President Goodluck Jonathan at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, during the week. His visit has however thrown the APC into confusion. When confronted by newsmen, Fani-Kayode slammed the APC, accusing it of favouring one religion against another, signalling that he had become tired of the party. He said his decision would be announced soon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most important thing; and I think you are fully aware of this, is that I cannot and I will not be associated with a situation whereby

any group of people is promoting one religion above others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think all of us have gone past the stage of religious politics in this country. We must treat the Muslim community with utmost respect and we must treat the Christian community in the same way and even the non-religious. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have always believed that every Nigerian, regardless of the side of the political divide he belongs, and as a Nigerian myself, I have believed we disagree on issues from time to time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most important thing is for us to be able to resolve these issues and come together to move this country forward. And I think every right-thinking responsible person should be able to do that. They should also be able to come to the Villa from time to time to see how they can help to move the country forward.â&#x20AC;? When quizzed further on his mission to the Villa, he reminded

State House correspondents that where they stood was part of the Presidential Villa and that the President is the president of Nigeria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every single person in this country that is a Nigerian is

entitled to come here from time to time, when the doors are open to come and pay their respect to the wonderful people that are here. As a Nigerian, I have done that today and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m delighted to be here,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Meanwhile, his visit to President Goodluck Jonathan has thrown APC into confusion. Saturday Newswatch learnt that APC members were not carried along before the scheduled visit to the Villa.

T

he much-awaited local government elections in Plateau State has come and gone but the swelling controversy that accompanied it would in no small measure determine the 2015 governorship election in the state. It has stirred some dust resulting in some power brokers being confused regarding their political strength. Without doubt, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is the party to beat in the state, having won 14 of the 16 councils during the just-held polls as declared by the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Independent Electoral Commission (PLASIEC) while the remaining two councils (Jos North and Wase) are still being managed by Interim Administrators due to security challenges there. However, the result of the Langtang North area is yet to be released because of alleged irregularities, especially in Jat Ward, leading to a bye-election in the area. The date is to be announced later. Moreover, a group has dragged the PLASIEC to court, demanding the release of the election result. Disappointingly, the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) with hypes        win a ward at the February Âť< K   2@   permutations by political pundits that Plateau is still a PDP state. Also, the scenario          0 Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), which won some councillorship seats in Jos South and Riyom, is the strongest opposition in the state, and may pose a tough challange for the PDP in the 2015 general election. "      9       = campaign of the PDP zonal rally by Governor Jonah Jang in the three senatorial districts during which each of the zones clamoured to produce the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successor. Worthy of note is that, at   =       senatorial zone, speakers at the rally - particularly youths - expressed the hope that the position of governor would return to the zone in 2015. They claimed that the last time they held the governorship position was during the aborted third republic when Ambassador Fidelis Tapgun was the elected governor after the Chief Solomon Lar, pioneer

Jang

Tapgun National Chairman of the PDP was sacked in 1983 by the military junta of General Mohammadu Buhari (rtd.). However, observed that the zone has since been occupying juicy positions at the Federal level while also contesting the governorship election since 1999. It would be recalled that the zone opposed the re-election of Governor Jang in 2011, pushing forward the deputy governor, Dame Paulin Tallen, to replace her boss who then was nursing a return-ticket ambition. Therefore, the quest by some political big wigs like Engr. Jimmy Cheto, from the southern senatorial zone for the '      2 2 described as desperate. However, at the Plateau Central Senatorial zone campaign rally in Pankshin, a PDP youth leader raised another controversy that the zone should be allowed to produce Jangâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successor in 2015, though it produced former governor Joshua Dariye who @ 2'  ' 9 compared to the incumbent. Saturday Newswatch learnt that the zone has been strategic in the political arrangement because major political activists are often drawn from the area. The only snag against it is the fact that the zone did not produce any PDP senator in the 2011 National Assembly election, which presupposes      @    @ on ground in Plateau Central Senatorial District. However, the turnout of        = campaign contrasted the belief and suggested that the people

Another thing is whether the zone is united and ready to push further for the governorship slot. Regrettably, they are often seen and regarded as lacking the political will to vigorously pursue the plum position

replace Jang, claiming that the zone has shown competency in managing both human and material resources. The state PDP youth leader, Pam Audu, who hails from the zone, said there have been prophecies that the governorship position would remain in the zone. According to him, the zone has competent hands to do the job, adding that the infrastructural development that Jang has started should not be allowed to end in ruin but consolidated upon, for the overall good of the state and its citizens. But Governor Jang, following the pressure being mounted by the three senatorial zones, has decided to odopt the rodent tactics, which entails biting and blowing simultaneously, without the victim feeling the pains. He said publicly that he is still waiting on God to anoint his successor, praying that God should give him the grace to work for whoever God anoints regardless of that personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ethnic or senatorial district of origin. However, the salient question on the lips of people is whether the local government election could serve as an acid test for the governorship election in the state, and whether Governor Jang is truly in control of the political structure of the state. Indeed many groups have adjudged the local government election as free and fair without any interference by the incumbent governor. They are pleased that people were allowed to make their choices without any form of coercion. Political pundits have it that Governor Jang has greater =  J  2    next governor of the state whether from the southern, central or northern senatorial zones and that the northern zone which has been so strategic in the political history of the state would decide at the last instance who succeeds the incumbent governor. However, the views of the people is that whoever takes over governance from Governor Jang should be able to consolidate on the infrastructural development started by the governor since 2007 to ensure that the dream of transforming the state into a modest one in Central Nigeria is pursued to a logical conclusion.

ll Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Lagos State chapter, has described the recent judicial pronouncement by Justice Saliu Saidu of the Federal High Court, Lagos, that banned the state government from further collection of tolls at the Lekki-Epe Express way toll gate, as monumental, epoch making, public-spirited and justice for the masses. A statement countersigned by the acting chairman and publicity secretary of the party, Edwin Izuchukwu and Sanjo Olawuyi respectively, said the judgment would go a long way in preventing Lagos State Government from proceeding with its â&#x20AC;&#x153;commercialized style of governance.â&#x20AC;? Describing Governor Babatunde Fasholaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership style as too commercial, APGA said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;This commercialized style of governance is now becoming unbearable. If care is not taken, the All Progressives Congress (APC) regime in Lagos will not allow the masses that gave him the mandate to access dividends of democracy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chronically, we of Lagos APGA joined forces with other public-spirited organisations and politely pleaded with Lagos State government not to forcefully impose toll fees on the Lekki-Epe Express way at its conceptual stage, but they went ahead to impose the toll. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As if that is not enough, the Lagos State government imposed another anti-masses extortion policy via toll fees on the Ikoyi-Lekki Bridge. Who knows the next road or bridge to be turned into a business center in the state? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We of the Lagos APGA, made a visit to the IkoyiLekki Bridge but to our dismay, it was overt that, the Lagos State government has not abided by the Federal High Courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s judgment of Thursday 27th of March, 2014, which prohibits it from further collection of toll on the Ikoyi-Lekki Bridge,â&#x20AC;? the party stated. It would be recalled that Justice Saidu ruled that, Ă&#x192;      2  was built by public fund and that, the bridge was not a public-private-partnership initiative for which the collection of toll could be allowed.â&#x20AC;? APGA however applauded Mr. Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, a civil right lawyer, for his courage cum massesfriendly nature saying that â&#x20AC;&#x153;you came out boldly, when it appears that the residents of Ikoyi-Lekki and their environs are tired of complaining.â&#x20AC;?

Fashola, good man in wrong party â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Doherty Engr. Adedeji Doherty is the acting national vice chairman (South West) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as well as one of the Lagos Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gubernatorial aspirants of the party. In this interview with newsmen in Lagos, he spoke on topical issues, including his 2015 governorship ambition. Assistant Politics Editor, MANSUR OLADUNJOYE X excerpts:

W

hat does your party have in stock for the people of Lagos State in 2015? To be candid, we have seen a lot of things that have happened within the past 14 years in Lagos State, starting from former Governor Bola Tinubuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era down to the Governor Babatunde Fasholaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era. The Tinubu era was more or less a political era rather than an administrative era. The Fasholaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era, from what I have seen so far, has been a slight change for Lagos State, but not good enough. I can tell you straight away that the change that will occur in Lagos with a PDP governor will be more explicit, visible and one that will touch the lives of the average Lagos resident. The reason I am saying this is that there has been a yardstick already put in place by past governments. However, there are also some constraints   J @  J  opposition party in Lagos State. Lagos State was once the capital of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. But today, we have seen slight changes. However, with the kind of internal revenue generated, the kind of money from the federal allocations that have been coming to Lagos State vis a vis the development that you can see in the state, there is a serious negative disparity. However, it is not based on party line because there is nothing good for the people that the party will not say it will give. But it is the credibility of the person that is driving the vision, mission and the manifestoes of the party   9 #    K  is a good candidate in a wrong party. In Lagos State, in 2015, we are going to start right from the candidate. As such, you will see development in terms of youth employment, housing, rail, road and water transportation, health and education. Why is it that the opposition is not seeing anything good in the PDP? If we say we should look at that angle, I will tell you that there are party and the administration angles to it. There is also the political angle. The PDP is the reality of Nigeria today. If the All Progressives Congress (APC) had been there, it would have been worse than this. The reason is this: we are a country of 245    #  '  

'K    K     J       2 #   has brought us together is the unity that was formed over 100 years ago. The interests in PDP are so diverse. The APC was the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) before it was transformed into the APC. Without being in national government, you can see that the Ogun State APC is in crisis, Kwara APC is already in crisis. Kaduna and Sokoto states are also in crisis because they are not in agreement in the party. In the PDP, you cannot point to somebody as the owner of the party. If you look at the President Goodluck Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administration today, you will see that it has been micro-economically focused. If anybody understands the economy, he will agree that micro businesses are the bedrock of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy; they are the ones that set the foundation for the building of a strong house. You may not get the result immediately; but in the future you will know that what you have done is the best for the populace. In Nigeria today, the rate of unemployment has gone down, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has gone up, foreign investment has increased and the prospect for power generation is brighter than what it was two years ago. In education, a lot of schools have been built. The railway system @  29    J  years ago. However, we are not where we are supposed to be. I can tell you why. The orientation of politicians has to change as democracy is changing in Nigeria. During former President Olusegun Obasanjoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regime, we had a lot of people in politics that were not supposed to be there. During the late President Umaru Yarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Aduaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regime, they were just moving out and new ones were coming in. In the present Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regime a lot has gone past and a lot of credible people have come in. There has been evolutionary change in politics vis a vis the infrastructural development. As a party, we have been able to keep Nigerians together. We have been able to        misunderstandings. This in itself is a big task in Nigeria. A lot of us will not take what President Jonathan is accommodating since the past two years. Within the past years

Doherty we have made some mistakes; we have also been able to correct our mistakes. At the end of the day, the political class has been growing; the electorate has also been growing and knows what is due to it. As a governorship aspirant, what are those things you may want do          people if elected? With my developmental agenda, I will change the face of Lagos if elected. When I go through the $          2 how can those lights have impact on my pockets? How could they have an impact on my children? How could they make an impact if I am sick? For now, they only create ambience, partly security  2#   J   supposed to focus on is long term plan. We should move into a project for the decongestion of Lagos State. In the decongestion

To be candid, we have seen a lot of things that have happened within the past 14 years in Lagos State, starting from former Governor Bola Tinubuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era down to the Governor Babatunde Fasholaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era. The Tinubu era was more or less a political era rather than an administrative era. The Fasholaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s era, from what I have seen so far, has been a slight change for Lagos State, but not good enough

 žK J       rural development. That means we should move from Eti Osa down to Epe, for heavy development of low cost housing in order to drive people out of urban Lagos into rural Lagos. If people have to move into rural Lagos, there should be something that has to take them there. My housing policy should take them there; a good transport policy should take them there. The civil servants that decide to live in the rural areas should have 25 per cent increase in salary. That will lead a lot of people into the rural areas. All I need do is to have a train moving from Epe to may be Lekki Phase one; another train from Badagry to Mile 2 and yet another train running from Ikorodu central to Ketu or Ojota. Straight away, you are going to see people moving away from urban Lagos because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now become viable and economical. After I have been able to move the people to rural Lagos, I will focus on education. In some riverine areas they go to schools in boats. I have visited all the 245 wards in Lagos State during my campaign for the 2007 governorship elections. Apart from the free trade zone that has happened to Lagos State, other thing that has happened to the state is the building of estates that are   2    #   there we will move into health, J     2  2# Right now in Lagos State everything is privatised. Education is the same thing. At the Lagos State University, we know how much they are paying. How did you see the appointment of Senator Musiliu Obanikoro as a minister? Congratulations to Musiliu Obanikoro. If you look at Senator Obanikoroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s antecedent, you will see that he has been a local government chairman; he has been a senator, and he has also been an ambassador. I believe he should 2 2  

@       way it is supposed to be carried. I wish him good luck. I was also

one of the people that supported his nomination. I contested with him for the nomination. He got it. I believe he should be able to do well in any position he is given. Would you advise him on how to represent Lagos State in his present position? As far as representing Lagos State is concerned, I believe that as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria right now, he has automatically become an arrow-head with Mr. Gbenga Aganga, who was nominated from Lagos State. Senator Obanikoroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nomination is from the South West. He is representing the entire South West geo-political zone. I believe he will do well in taking care of the zone and not just Lagos State. Some people are afraid that a PDP government in Lagos State would scrap projects like the LASTMA, LASAA and others. How do you persuade them? With the PDP government that I see coming, I see a situation where people will be surprised and happy with what it would   #   ž9  the programmes that have been put up by the APC. Secondly, the APC might still have good and  9   '  # I will propose that some of the people remain in government. I will not propose the banning of LASTMA or LASAA. I will look at a situation where we can enhance these institutions. In terms of 2  '   changes, that is part of development. If you go to countries in Europe or Dubai, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t   2# J' K we will move the issue of social and environmental change into the hands of local governments. The local government will have autonomy in Lagos State. There will also be a body that will oversee them and their projects. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe we should get into government and destabilise all the existing structures. However, there might be some projects that may not be continued if they are not good for the state. How prepared is Lagos PDP to win the 2015 elections? Right now, the Lagos State PDP is united. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say we are divided. There is no party that does not have some kinds of communication lapses among its members. But when you have 70 to 80 per cent of your members united, then you are there. In the PDP, the main thing is structure.   JK J   9 structures in place to win the 2015 elections. You are going to see PDP      š       one you have been seeing in the past. Are you interested in the Lagos 2015 gubernatorial election? In the next two to three months, we should be able to take a decision on that. Why did the South West PDP endorse President Jonathan for the second term? The zone has endorsed President Jonathan for second term for   # &      unity of the party going; another is to make sure that the minority zones in Nigeria have their way this time in order to create a levelplaying ground for all Nigerians. One thing we need to understand here is that President Jonathan is the symbol of Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maturity.

How do I prepare my child for a new baby?

Kemi, Your child wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to talk about the baby all the time, but you can continue to answer his questions as they come up. He may ask you what the baby is doing in there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is he moving around?â&#x20AC;? Or he may ask if it is going to come out. You can also ask him what he thinks. Children usually have an idea about the answer when they ask the question. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always have to correct your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;misconceptions.â&#x20AC;? Let your child feel the baby kicking once the movements are pronounced enough. You can invite him to sing to or pat the baby. Consider bringing your older toddler to a short antenatal visit to hear the babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartbeat. Keep your talk about the new baby light and positive. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to tell your child that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling sick because of the pregnancy. Simply tell him youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not feeling well, just as you would if you were sick for another reason. If you want to explain your fatigue, you can say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growing a baby is a lot of work. I sometimes felt tired when you were growing inside, too.â&#x20AC;? Your three-year-old may not be able to imagine what having a baby around will be like until the baby gets here. Give him simple information such as, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The baby 456789:;9<:=;9859>=<@94B8E9@5J9<89PQR8U9 but we will be able to kiss her toes or hold her hand. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll spend most of the time sleeping, crying, and feeding. Sometimes babies cry because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only way they can tell us what they need.â&#x20AC;? At some point, you may want to show your son some photos of what you looked like when you were pregnant with him. And of course, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to go through his own baby pictures with him, tell him stories of what he was like when he was a baby, and explain how excited you were when he was born. This will help him understand that he was once the baby 4E59V5898E<89R>;WB<=9:<:@9<X;68B56Z9 89 will also help him learn what a newborn looks like, and how babies grow. Visiting friends or relatives with babies is also helpful now. If your child is not used to being around babies or seeing you hold another child, he may have R5\;9R8Q56V9Q;<W8B56R9<89PQR8Z9 89BR9VQ;<89 if you can spend relaxed time with other families so he can get used to the idea that even if his parents hold other babies, they still love him, and will take care of him. Being around other babies will also give him a chance to see what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like, and to begin developing ways to interact with them.

My dad is having an affair

K  Grace, Finding out that your father is having <69<(<BQ9BR9<69J6>=;<R<689^BRW5_;Q@Z9 89 may make you question your relationship with him, and it may make you feel less connected, or very angry. Yet, he remains your father, and it might just be a time of maturation and personal growth for you if you handle this appropriately. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rush to conclusions. You need to be sure of the entire story. Perhaps there have been a lot of things kept from you over the years; maybe your father will think you are mature enough to know now, but that remains his choice. Know that your image of your dad has :;;698<Q6BRE;^Z95J9E<_;9<9R>;WBPW9>BW8JQ;9 in your mind of who your parents are but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a picture of a child looking at parents

Try to stand back from the child self and see your father as a human being with emotions, failings, and needs the same as everyone else. While what has happened isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a nice way to ^BRW5_;Q98E<89@5JQ9><Q;689BR9<4;^U9B89W<69 be a source of freeing you from some of your idealism about your father.

Perhaps they have made amends, or are trying to, or perhaps theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re drifting apart or divorcing.

Michael, To begin with, why date a girl for two years if you knew you were not going to marry her. That aside, you have already made your decision. It is a good thing you took a break before you met this new girl, so it is not like you cheated on her. So what are you confused <:5J8Â&#x201E;9=8E5JVE9><B6|J=U9P6^B6V9<9VBQ=9@5J9 actually love and want to marry is a wise decision. All you need to do is talk to your ex. Tell her you are in love with someone else, and you want to be with this new person. If she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t still get the message, let her meet your P<6WÂ&#x2026;;Z9 5>;|J==@U98E<89would discourage her.

Surveillance

Obiano sets security agenda for Anambra T

he current crackdown on criminals in Anambra State took a new dimension as the 2-Day Summit on security organised by the Willie Obiano administration @   J strident calls from the governor on the people to play a role in riding the state of criminal elements. Speaking at the event, Governor Obiano pinned the soaring crime rate in the society on the peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inability to reclaim the societal values that once made crime an outright taboo among them. Wondering why the society had grown to accept criminals with open arms, the governor asked; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ndi Anambra when did we lose the heart to ask questions? When did we begin to give chieftaincy titles to people whose source of wealth has no easy explanation? Ndi Anambra the time has come when we must ask ourselves some questions. Have we been fair to ourselves?â&#x20AC;? Pointing out that the society of today yearns for moral rebirth, the governor declared; â&#x20AC;&#x153;We must reignite the quest for the rebirth of our society. We must strengthen the moral fabric of our communities to give our children and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children a chance at happiness. We shall soon commence a public enlightenment campaign to sensitize the people on the role we expect everyone to play in the new dispensation to reclaim Anambra State from criminals.â&#x20AC;? 0    K     against criminals in the state can only be successfully if the people took ownership    29  2  cooperate with the law enforcement agencies. Describing the current silence of the people to criminal activities around them as â&#x20AC;&#x153;dangerous,â&#x20AC;? the governor explained that â&#x20AC;&#x153;experience has shown that crime thrives best when society adopts silence and inertia as a mode of response. Anytime we chose silence instead of speech in response to the criminal activities of our friend or neighbour, we make ourselves complicit in their crimes. We must not choose a cowardly silence in exchange for a bold and redeeming speech. Ndi Anambra kpoonu ife ojo ife ojoo!!!â&#x20AC;? Calling on Anambrarians to sit up and re-examine   9  K   governor observed that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the drive for unbridled

acquisition of material wealth has left us stranded in crime-ridden communities, where no one has neither the courage nor the time to question the source of wealth of overnight billionaires that live among us.â&#x20AC;? He however, assured that his administration would not relent on its war against criminals, revealing that his Blueprint for the development of Anambra State was designed to tackle unemployment among the youths through a massive creation of jobs. In his own speech, the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar commended the governor for starting his tenure in       with a direct confrontation of one of the nightmares of the society.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The primary responsibility of the governor of any state is to provide security for his people. No state or country in the world can pursue any meaningful development programme without tackling security,â&#x20AC;? the Inspector General of Police observed. The Inspector General however reminded the royal fathers in the state that they had a fundamental role to @       criminals as most of the crime suspects are their subjects. He also called on the general public to provide useful information that would aid the police in crime investigation and prevention pointing out that the challenge of securing the community lies with the people. Presenting a paper titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Security as Panacea for

Development,â&#x20AC;? an Israeli security expert, Moshe Keinan compared the security challenges that    

@ 29 to the situation in Israel. According to him, Israel had remained a target for terrorists and members of the organised crime in spite of its pre-eminent status as a holy land but had achieved a drastic curtailment of the scourge through proactive, long term measures that   2   and external threats to its security. Mr. Keinan stressed the need for the country to secure her boarders to forestall cross-border alliances between home grown criminals and their foreign counterparts while making a strong case for the use of modern technology in     #

My kidnappers apologised to me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ebikeme Clark Continued from page 78 alive. All those who showed concern for me during my ordeal - Chief Government Ekpemupolo (Tompolo), Hon. Fumughe Solomon, Chief Tunde Smooth and other Ijaw leaders - I am grateful to them. I had thought that no 9 J K  J 2 kept under that condition for more than 24 hours as the son of Chief E.K. Clark. Then, it was one day, two days, three days. I was beginning to feel

 9 Ă  J not supposed to be there for more than 24 hours before somebody calls the boys to order; but I was impressed that they eventually called the boys to order and no ransom was paid. They started apologising to me as they were releasing me for keeping me at all. They gave me N5,000 for transport. Who played what role in z    Â&#x17D; As I came out, I discovered

that somebody from my own village started the whole plan. The kidnap was planned from my own village. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m discovering now as I came out.

ince this week, I have been psychologically elevated and my %   + $ "# that Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rebased nominal GDP has almost doubled from $285billion to $510 billion is a great tonic to me and I presume to other patriots. Indeed the additional information that Nigeria has advanced to the position of the 26th largest economy in the World, only six percentage points, shy of our 2020 Vision target, got me literarily dancing. But why are Nigerians not celebrating? Some commentators have asked whether this is real or fantasy. My friend Bismark Rewane  Y   to vanity. I can understand this apparent denial of reality. This story sounds too good to be true. Nigerians are used to reading, hearing and narrating bad news about their country. Some actually love to hear bad news about the nation. The reason, I cannot tell. If the news was that we had declined in GDP or have receded in our ranking, many commentators would have been celebrating, berating the Nation in their characteristic past time. But that we are now the largest economy in Africa is not reverberating. If this news was about South-Africa or Ghana, there would have been elaborate commemoration in Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;burg and Accra. But I am celebrating, though every commentator had cautioned me against celebrating. Even the senior    q  %        discourage any celebration perhaps to minimize any rise in expectations or to pre-empt the anticipated opposition or nay Sayers who would readily read politics into what is purely economic reality. I am enthused for many reasons. First, as a proud Nigerian, I am pleased that my beloved, though beleaguered country is in the news for good. Indeed in the global news. Every international medium has carried the news in the last week that Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy has overtaken that of South Africa to become the biggest in Africa. We are therefore not only the fastest growing economy but now also the biggest in Africa. That gladdens my heart and makes me feel good. For long, some commentators have said Nigeria was big for nothing, and that our large population was only good at consumption, adding that we produce nothing but oil. Even other smaller African countries, encouraged by our own over critical press, jeered at us as all the data ever released about Nigeria was adverse. Secondly, as past Chairman of the Nigeria Economic Summit Group (NESG), people have asked me without break, what we had achieved

Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rebased GDP:

Too good to be true? for the 21 years we have held the Nigerian Economic Summits (NES). I had said that our greatest achieve Y!ence the government to diversify and open up the economy through deregulation, commercialization and privatisation. Today, Telecommuni  $Y%  !  !lation policy - contributes 9% of our GDP from 0% in 1990. With services now contributing 52% of our GDP,        economy over the years are yielding fruits. Thirdly, I have spent the greater part of my working life in Manufacturing, and have grown sick with the abysmally low level of contribution of manufacturing to GDP of between 2-4%. With the rebasing, we can see the impact of the increased activities in manufacturing - cement, Y ! 9 % ! 9  29 pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and basic consumer products - which have moved us to a better 7% of GDP. At one time, some even argued that given the very low contribution of manufacturing, maybe Nigeria should discontinue all manufacturing and focus on the areas contrib! 

  !  GDP. Now such morbid thoughts will have no foundation to stand on; and you say I should not be glad? Fourth, the world is now better   % 

sectors of the Nigerian economy and the promise they hold and should therefore elicit more interests. Certainly, there will be an appreciable impact on investments in the country going forward. Fifth, Nigeria will command greater respect in the international community. Should a meeting of the G26 be called today, Nigeria will be in the league. Seriously, Nigeria will be better respected and its voice listened to more intently in world    ". 9 has China garnered a lot of global

Though the rebased GDP does not automatically translate to more money in the pockets of Nigerians, it is gratifying that our per capita income has jumped from $1500 to $2,688

attention and respect in the last ten years or so? It is essentially because of its galloping growth that has brought it to be the second largest economy in the world today, only behind the USA. Sixth, though the rebased GDP does not automatically translate to more money in the pockets of Nigerians, it is gratifying that our per capita income has jumped from $1500 to $2,688. That increases the worth of every Nigerian and again has a positive impact on the attractiveness of Nigeria to investors (foreign or domestic) as it indicates purchasing power potentials. Seventh, it motivates the govern     have yielded something positive. Yes, the governments (past and present) have not done everything right, but it is true that they have done certain things right and Nigerians must be charitable to accord them the honour for those things done rightly. The rebased GDP throws up some of the areas that government policies have had positive impact - Telecoms and manufacturing for example. Conversely, it shows up areas where more work is needed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Power, for example, which is yet to contribute meaningfully to the GDP. Perhaps at the 2015 rebasing, we may see Power contributing much more if the current investments and restructuring are carried through. Eighth, the creativity of Nigerians shone bright in the rebased GDP. Did anyone imagine that Entertainment, which is essentially indigenous, could yield $854billion (1.4%) to the 2013 GDP? That must be rewarding news to our Nollywood entrepreneurs and actors, as well as our musicians and comedians. I believe it will not only motivate them to do more, it will spur the development of other indigenous business sectors like arts and culture, literature, pottery, painting and sculpture, areas that Nigerians can readily excel. I could go on and on to justify why I think we need to be happy about the rebased GDP. The point I am making is that, we must cheer our country and ourselves when something good comes our way. Though several challenges still face us as a nation; though we expect much more from our governments (Federal, State and Local); though we still have high unemployment; though we are facing severe security challenges, the point must be made that many things are going well for our nation. One, and very important, is that our economy has grown and expanded, and that we have the largest GDP in the entire African continent and the 26 largest economy in the whole world. If that is not good news, I am sorry!
