The Sultan said the misconduct of the sect is against the teachings of the Holy Prophet who promoted peaceful co-existence during his life time. The Sultan made this    terday during the unveiling of a modern Mosque built by the Islamic community at Bodija. The Muslim leader, who condemned the criminal activities of Boko Haram es-

pecially the abduction of school girls and their forceful conversion to Islam, described the action as ungodly and un-Islamic. He charged the Islamic adherents to let the society know that Boko Haram members are not Muslims but criminals, adding that their actions are barbaric and inhuman. Chairman of the Islamic community, Alhaji Tiamiyu Giwa, said:

“At this juncture, our community condemns in strong terms the tragic incidents of bombing, abduction and killings in some northern states of Nigeria in the last couple of years.� He, therefore, condoled with victims of viscious attacks and their families. According to him, Islam is a religion of peace which abhors violence in any form. Continue on Page 3

the situation signals a no!  ! '   powers on Nigeria’s security agencies. But dispelling the impression, Army Col.

The letter read in part: “These personnel will support the operation of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft for missions over northern Nigeria and the surrounding area. The Force will remain in Chad until its support in resolving the kidnapping situation is no longer required.� The American Forces Press Service quoted another Pentagon spokesman, Army Lt. Col. Myles B. Caggins, as saying: “The team in Chad is there in support of one of our ISR assets -- an unarmed, un-

manned aerial vehicle that is helping to support the search for the students.â€? He assured that, “the majority of the Air Force personnel are dedicated to the launch, recovery and maintenance of the aircraft,â€? adding that “we’ll continue to evaluate the resources we might bring      +  in close consultation with the Nigerian government.â€?

T

he United Kingdom (UK), yesterday, described as a welcome development the inclusion of Boko Haram on the United Nations’ sanctions list. The UN Security Council’s Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee had on Thursday approved the inclusion of Boko Haram on its list of groups subject to

Boko Haram: Nigeria is at war – Jang  ) Jos

P

lateau State Governor, Jonah Jang, lamented yesterday in Jos that the unabated reign of terror by the murderous Islamist sect - Boko Haram - has placed the country in a war situation, adding that until they are defeated, Nigeria would not know peace. Jang was speaking in Jos while inspecting the scene of Tuesday’s twin bomb blast in the city’s market. Describing the bombers as enemies of the country, Jang said nothing can stop President Goodluck Jonathan’s aspiration for next year. Said he: “Nigeria is at war, and this is the worst kind of war to fight, as you do not know your enemies. Many of those who attack us are mostly from outside Plateau State, or outside the country. They bring their bomb materials from outside and assemble here in our State. He continued: “When they come here, they don’t stay on trees, they stay in people’s houses and even the bombs are assembled in people’s houses. Why can’t we be patriotic enough to report them to the authorities?� he asked. Thus, he urged security chiefs in the country to rally round President Goodluck Jonathan in fishing out the sponsors of the group. Also, the governor urged Jonathan to take a decisive action against those that boasted that they will make the country ungovernable for the present administration, adding that nothing will stop Jonathan from winning next year’s presidential elections. The governor, who

returned from a trip abroad, said he was told that the casualty figure from the bombing had risen to 78, adding that some of the bodies were mutilated with some parts missing. According to him, “up till now we cannot estimate how many people suffered that devastation, but the final figure will come if members of the public, after sometimes, do not see their relations and understand that they were here, then we can collate the number; that means that the number will go higher.� The governor challenged residents of the State to be security conscious and vigilant, and report suspicious characters or movements around them. Jang, while advising politicians to stop playing politics with human lives, said: “I am disappointed the way some politicians in the country treat President Goodluck Jonathan. Some of those criticising Mr. President cannot proffer solutions to the insecurity in the country. “Some were in government before and did not do better, but all they do is play politics with disasters. Whether they like it or not, President Goodluck Jonathan will win the 2015 elections by the grace of God.� He said before the present state of insecurity in the country escalated, there were some persons who had vowed that they would make the country ungovernable. He, therefore, suggested that such persons be arrested and made to explain the import of their statement. “Nobody is untouchable in the country,� he fumed.

P

resident Goodluck 7      {! ' handed over the signed Appropriation Act 2014 to the Coordinating Minister for the Economy and Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi OkonjoIweala, for implementation. President Jonathan was said to have endorsed the budget on Wednesday, having been passed as an enabling Act by the National Assembly and transmitted to him about a month earlier. At the event, only the President, Minister of Finance and the Director General of the 0  |{! }8 0

 Okogu, were reportedly present. Okonjo-Iweala was said to have been absent when the President endorsed the budget, thus necessitating the formal handover to her. Shortly after, the President left Abuja

for South Africa, according to Presidency sources. The President had withheld assent to the budget until two days ago, following alleged grave distortions of the document by the National Assembly, a development the Executive described as serious, adding that it would have a negative impact on its implementation. Presidency had explained that the delay in tidying up issues bordering on the 2014 budget was due to discussions between the Executive and the leadership of the National Assembly to harmonize the distortions made by the later in the Appropriation Bill presented to it by President Jonathan last year. While Jonathan had proposed an Appropriation Bill of N4, 642, 960, 000, 000, the National Assembly passed N4, 695, 190, 000,000, about N52, 230 billion higher.

But yesterday, none was available to give details about the current state of the budget after the harmonisation of the copy passed by the National Assembly. 0   &  ~  3 respondents on the outcome of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting two weeks’ ago, the Information Minister, Mr. Labaran Maku, had said it is sad that the budget had taken long in !     +!8 ~   !      the areas of distortion in the budget were very serious and that they could have negative impact on its implementation if not addressed. ~   / _    Finance briefed us today at the FEC relating to the progress on the budget.

budget has taken so long in coming, and practically, we have less than seven months to execute it. “We will do everything possible to reconcile the few +!       what was transmitted to the government by the National Assembly. “There are a few areas of distortions and there are those areas that are very serious and we think there is need to look into them because of the negative impact those distortions may have on the implementation of the budget. “There is a lot of conversation going on now between the Federal Ministry of Finance and the National Assembly on these issues. And very shortly we believe that we are going to reconcile        budget will be announced to the nation by the President.â€?

Okonjo-Iweala said N3.8 billion approved by the President was being processed and would soon be released, adding that there were other additional spendings. She said the delay in the passage of the budget would not hamper the running of the economy.

A

chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the South West, Prince Buruji Kashamu, yesterday told a X  Y  &   in Chicago that it has no case against his personality, and should not be referred to as a fugitive. The US court in Chicago presided by Judge Charles Richard Norgle, had on April 24 ruling described Kashamu as fugitive and drug dealer. The Royal Court of Justice in England presided over by Lord Justice Pill and Mr. Justice Bell had, in 2003, granted unconditionally release to Kashamu when the US Justice Department could not substantiate its claims that he (Kashamu) was the most wanted Alhaji who was allegedly mentioned by others arrested as their principal conspirator.

workers (who are civil servants) have continued to exhibit against doctors, to the extent of describing Prof. C. O. Onyebuchi Chukwu, a serving Hon. Minister of The Federal Republic of Nigeria as ‘Intransigent.’ This is not only despicable but highly condemnable by all men of good conscience.� The association said that the crises in the health sector are politically motivated and counterproductive  $   &   democracy, achieving health related MDGs in particular and in the overall improvement of our health indices in general. Its words: “This threat of strike and other recent events have proven us % )   " to blackmail the Federal Government to do what it knows, that if done, will trigger a vicious circle of industrial disharmony in the health sector.� According to Obembe, the NLC/TUC as the umbrella body of all labour organizations in the country neverbotheredtoinvestigate the issues surrounding industrial disharmony in the health sector but chose to exhibit bias and lopsided &""      not minding the grave consequences these pose to the overall health and well being of Nigerians.

NUPENG blames Nigeria leaders for corruption in oil,gas industry Cyprian Ebele, Onitsha

T

he crisis rocking the nation’s oil and gas industry has been blamed on corruption among the political class. The accusation was made yesterday in Onitsha, Anambra State, by the Port Harcourt zonal chairman of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), Comrade Godwin Eruba, at the inauguration of the Anambra State branch of the body, SUTAKEP unit. Eruba, who slammed members of the ruling class for their corrupt tendencies, linked the tradition of petroleum products importation in Nigeria to corrupt tendencies, quering why successive administrations failed to build new refineries, even with the geometric growth of consumers of petroleum products. According to him, insincerity and lack of proper vision blinded various administrations from realising the meaning of true leadership, warning that NUPENG in partnership

with other labour unions would strongly resist any attempt to enslave Nigerians by any political gimmick to increase the pump price of petroleum products. He described any “partial and complete removal of fuel subsidy� as a political gimmick, adding that “we will

not allow the removal of fuel subsidy, whether partial or complete. We will not support any further increase in the price of fuel. The Federal Government should first of all build new refineries and stop importation of petroleum products which have been marred

by massive corruption going on in the country on daily basis.� He warned that unless the nation’s political leaders rise up to their responsibilities and shun corruption, the nation’s economic growth would never reflect on the standard of living of the people.

Politics Govs & their rag-tag council administrations

President Jonathan

Mansur Oladunjoye, Asst. Politics Editor

T

he failure by many state governments and governors to conduct local government elections or accord local governments in their states due regards as provided for in the 1999 Constitution may have rubbished the third tier of government, making a mockery of the 1976 enabling law, which recognised it as another vital level of administration. For samplers, only 17 (Enugu, Ebonyi, Lagos, Sokoto, Niger, Kwara, Akwa Ibom, Benue, Jigawa, Adamawa, Kaduna, Cross River and Rivers, Kebbi, Ogun, Taraba, Zamfara and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) of the 36 states conducted elections into their local government councils, while the remaining 19 states have been running the councils with either interim or caretaker  % Political analysts readily adduce the failure to by the governors to conduct council elections to their loathesomeness for the third tier of governmen, touted as the closest to the grassroot electorate. True or false, some state governors are believed to be uncomfortable with local government autonomy, preferring to be literally worshipped by those at the head of that level of government. Some in fact argue that development and harmonisation of programmes would be & ! & & % It is on record that of all the states that have conducted local government elections, Sokoto held its last on July 23, 2011 and due to have another in September this year. Niger State conducted its own in October 2011 and the terms will expire this year. Kwara, which held one in October 2010, plans to conduct the next elections into the councils next year, while Akwa Ibom held its own in June, 2012. Cross River held the last council elections in 2010 and is due to hold the next one in December this year. Other states that are up to date with council elections include Benue which, prior to 2007, conducted the last one in November 24. Jigawa held its own last year; while Rivers held its own in May 2011. Lagos also conducted its council polls this year while Enugu and Ebonyi states are among the few states with up to date council polls, with the

last election in Enugu holding in December 2011 and Ebonyiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in July 2010. Both states are preparing for their next polls. Alongside their stranglehold on the third tier of government by the state governors, is the alleged meddling with their allocated funds through the Local Government Joint Accounts. In Abia State, the last council elections were held in January 2008 and when their tenures expired in 2010, the governor appointed (      ' occasions created a timeline for council polls which never held. Kaduna State held its council elections last Saturday after a long period of running under ""   %

Since then, the third tier of government in the state has been run by (  %   &    &     5    poll. Local government polls in Plateau State held last in November 2008 and witnessed violence.

Bayelsa State held its last council polls in {" Â&#x201A;Â&#x192;Â&#x2021;Â&#x192;%  Y( `( &    '    '   &  administrations and appointed interim teams.

In Imo State, it has been a total rigmarole with the creation of further tiers without any mention of local government elections. Anambra State features perhaps the most notorious scenario.

Investigation by Saturday Newswatch revealed that 18 of 25 lawmakers in the Assembly have been    {\   in the state, such that they sponsored APC candidates in the last party congress.

The Speaker observed that the members acted in accordance with laid down procedures under section 109 (F) of the constitution which empowers them to do so. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People can see clear that the House is purely a PDP House as all the 25 members are now PDP members,â&#x20AC;?

On why it took them time to decamp to PDP, he said â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a House where there is struggle between members of the same family, one needs to apply wisdom by avoiding anything that will make him take wrong decision.â&#x20AC;? He explained that PDP in the state was once embroiled in leadership tussle which led to emergence of two state chairmen that made the lawmakers to be careful not to back any group, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, the crisis in PDP, is over we have only one state chairman who is chief Joel Madaki,â&#x20AC;? adding that political development

Reacting to the development, the former secretary of PDP, in the state Mr. P.P.

Ogoni communities adopt Pro-Poor Oil and Gas advocacy policy THANKGOD OFOELUE, Benin

C

ommunities of Ogoniland, Rivers State, have adopted a Pro-Poor Oil and Gas Policy as an advocacy tool in their quest for environmental justice. This was part of the fall out of a two-day advocacy conference organized in Kpor last week by the Centre for Environment, Human Rights and Development (CEHRD), in partnership with the Catholic Organisation for Relief and Development Aid (CORDAID). Adopting the policy document packaged by CEHRD with inputs from community stakeholders, the communities undertook to form advocacy groups that would be at the forefront as they embark on advocacies to relevant authorities. Encouraging the communities to take the advocacy option serious, Michael Gbarabe, CEHRDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s \   !  the conference, under the theme, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Advocacy: A Veritable Tool for Policy Reforms and Community Development,â&#x20AC;? called for policies and laws that would protect the interests of regions that bear the brunt of extractive activities. He said this was necessary since the existing policies are anti-poor. He told the community members not to relent in the search for solutions to the Niger Delta oil and gas-induced problems, as they hold the key of change that the society seeks. In a keynote, Programme Director of CEHRD, Obodoekwe Styvn &    5  "  in Nigeria may not be adequate to protect the interests of local communities that bear the brunt of oil activities as they were never consulted in the production of such policies.

He advocated a pro-poor oil and gas policy as a way out of the hopeless situation in the Niger Delta. Callistus Oke also noted that youths in the Niger Delta are faced with challenges of livelihood as a result of oil activities, adding that in trying to meet up with these challenges, some youths have resorted to crime like breaking oil pipelines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Livelihood has been negatively impacted upon by oil and gas activities as environmental problems have contributed to lack of alternative means of survivalâ&#x20AC;?, said he, adding that youths embrace oil bunkering, political thuggery and militancy to make ends meet. The draft of a pro-poor oil and gas policy was validated and adopted by the participants, who aim at using the policy as an advocacy tool.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rig Osun poll â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Guber candidate Senator Sunday Fajinmi,63, is an astute politician from Iwo, Osun State. He was twice elected Senator for Osun West on the platform of UNCP and A.D respectively. He is now the overnorship candidate of Alliance for Democracy (A.D.) in the coming August 9 election. MICHAEL OLANREWAJU was among the Journalists he addressed recently in Oshogbo where he disclosed his determination to wrest power from Governor Rauf Aregbesola to execute â&#x20AC;&#x153;the peoplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; programmesâ&#x20AC;? enunciated by the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo. Here are Excerpts:

Y

ou have just been declared as the authentic Governorship candidate of your party, Alliance for Democracy (AD), do you think you have what it takes to beat the incumbent? Well, I thank you for that question and most people have asked that question most often times. It itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an abnormal since Aregbesola became the Governor of Osun State because he has not been taught governance in the right perspective, he has not         he came to Osun and we can see how he has messed it up. Every step he made is always at the wrong direction, everything he has done has not been very successful. With somebody who claims that he has been well taught in Lagos, one should have 5"   "   from him than what we have now. Look at the school uniform problem that we have now,  !   & $   student from Oke-Ila to a student from Ilesa or to Iwo in a case where there is a crisis or a sport competition that comprises of all the schools in Osun, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s   " % !   look at the school system, how would you start merging schools together, our fore-fathers made sure that students donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to walk one kilometre before they get to school, at worst two kilometres so that they will not be tired before they get to school, but look at our student, there was a time they were carrying their chairs and benches on their heads to school and look at what has happened now, they have fractionalized everything, they have taken students from the town to the village and from village to the town, they now have to walk several kilometres before they get to school and look at the uniform system, people are now allowed to wear all kinds of clandestine uniform that they have and a good example is what happened in Iwo when the Egungun (Masquerade) people wore their dress, the Sango worshipers wore their own, Muslim wore their own and of course, their hijab that he has allowed into our schools. Not that hijab is bad, is just that we must be able to see the faces of our students and we are able

to address them face to face. If our girls are beautiful, we want to see them, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way they are created by God and if God wanted them to be hidden, then he would have made a mask to cover their faces when they were coming to earth or make sure   !       # looking as they are, they have been born the way they have been born, so there is no point hiding their face. And also, I want to say that if you want to build any school for goodness sake, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t waste the money of the government of Osun, destroy many classrooms because you want to build a school. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see anywhere in the world where you have to destroy buildings because you want to build a school, and what schools are they building? I am an authority in preferred buildings, he is using the worst case of prefabrication, I am the chairman of a developing company and I know that that kind of a thing is not good and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same mistake that was made in Lagos in Dolphin Estate where they used prefab, solid precast system for that place and what is the resultant $ !Ă&#x2019;   &  2 ' money or you are not rich, you cannot live in Dolphin Estate and most of the Estates were built with precast system and that is the same problem he is trying to create in Osun state. I can tell you the cheapest form  !  &     )&(        )&(   brought them, he has gone to China and bring when there are  "      ( Spain, Italy, like America who are the fathers in this industry. You see, there are a lot of things he is doing because nobody can check him and I want to come to opon imo, what he has brought is Ipad and Ipad is 20, 30 dollars in China and these ipads were made in China, I am a fellow of Nigerian Society and also a fellow of Nigerian Computer Professional Registration Council and I can tell you that what you have in there may not be what the students wanted but the only aspect that I like in it is that he has been able to capture most of the textbooks into the ipad but not at the ridiculous price we heard it contracted out to his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not

palatable at all, that is not how to rule people, that is not how to $  '    " " ! know what it takes and what is happening, not to people in Osun, they may think because Lagos is well endowed and well educated and we are backward here, we are not backward, most of us that are making waves in Lagos are from Osun here, so we know what is happening and let us sound a note of warning, what they should do is they should let people like us see their opon imo and let us evaluate it, let us know how much they contracted it out, let us know the people that even sat and recommended it to the government, all these we need to know, they should not be just wasting our money, go round, you can never see most of our contractors working in Osun because they have never given them any contract, even to build ordinary fence, they come from Lagos to build fence for us, so there are a lot of many things that is happening that we will change. We are going to bring the right &    '    & and we are going to showcase &'% &    &

I want to plead with those who intend to rig to desist, enough is enough, we had the worst of situation in Osun and we want this state to develop, please allow this state to develop and if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do, I will plead with the gods of this state to deal with them because they are only coming in to this state to steal

Sen. Fajinmi many years ago, I built my industry many years ago, I built         2 rent any place where I leave, ok, so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any need to steal money other than to return back where I have take, I surely taken from Osun, they have voted me in two times into the senate and this time around, I am going for governorship and I am going to showcase to the people how things would be done well and things must be well done.

Erect pedestrian bridge at Berger-Mowe

I

crave the indulgence of the able governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola (SAN), to listen to the cries of commuters who use Berger-Mowe expressway as their only transit point for going to and fro Lagos Island and erect a pedestrian bridge across the road.

Indeed, if our current The current policing model that ignores the contributions of communities in policy formulations and law enforcement is unacceptable. I am directing my inquiry to the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) for reasons that will be clearer shortly. The mention of the NPF conjures an image of an agency mired in dysfunction, terror, corruption and ineptitude. My intent, nonetheless is not to disparage the NPF, neither do I advocate their continued        "& history (which is common knowledge). Rather, this is a response to what I    &   &           Devolution of Power concerning the    " % )   righty rejected the move for the establishment of state police. However, it did nothing to rectify the current extrajudicial use of the services of the NPF by the government and private individuals against fellow citizens. I experience with the state governors doubt if it ever crossed their minds to is any guide, they exercise enormous look into the recurring issue of police powers due in part to the immunity brutality on innocent citizens because privileges in the constitution, and neither they (the elites) are the culprits.    {    {  # In an earlier article published by General of the Federation has sought Sahara Reporters entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Governor the courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s determination of the latitude Obiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Donation of Vehicles to the of their powers.

They treat the local against the establishment of a state governments with condescension as if police force.

dangerous weapons because they would use it against any and every one. Of course, the same argument could be advanced against the use of the Police by the Federal Government without judicial mandate. For instance, as I was about to complete this essay, my   ! !   "   President Jonathan had ordered the arrest of some members of Ohaneze Youth Council in Enugu State for holding a meeting while he was on a visit to the state. It reminded me of the Â&#x2019;   Â&#x2026; !   7 '  Jim Nwobodo of old Anambra State and Police Commissioner Bishop Eyitene, as well as Governor Rotimi Amaechi and \     +! + &% ) implication of President Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s order is that whenever a president is visiting, all commercial and social activities must cease. This is sheer nonsense and an unnecessary display of power. Acts like this make us a laughingstock       %   counterintuitive to halt commercial activities because the President is visiting, and expect businesspersons

to pay taxes to support governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s projects. Clearly, President Jonathan is chasing imaginary enemies of his reelection bid by ordering the arrest of lawabiding citizens. Such demonstration of power is over broad and I thought that      '! % In particular, our experiences with the NPF regarding how the people in the corridors of power have successfully manipulated their services, provide even stronger argument against the establishment of a state police force, and a re-evaluation of the current model. These unnecessary demonstrations of power present real and live threat to our freedom as enshrined in the constitution. The interference with the rights of the citizens by the government-instigated police or private citizens acting with the connivance of a public-remunerated Police without judicial authority or oversight is one of the reasons that I advocate the establishment of the community Police force. The rag tag vigilante in my community provides

 !  &    & of NPF in our cities that do nothing than play draughts (checkers) and extort money from vulnerable citizens under the colour of authority. The    & '   how to secure the citizens from the overreaching activities of a police force   &"     *&    presidency, a state governor, as well as private persons and opt for community police The duties of the NPF have colonial coloration. The British Consul     "      Nigeria in 1861 as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Consular Guardâ&#x20AC;? to protect its property in Lagos. The Guard metamorphosed into the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hausa Guardâ&#x20AC;? in 1863. The Royal Niger Company (RNC) set up the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Royal Niger Constabularyâ&#x20AC;? with the sole purpose of protecting the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests. When the RNC transferred its administration of the country to the protectorates, the Constabulary was split. Since then we have had a model of policing that is exclusive in character and operations, with an inspector-general as the head. Our founding fathers adopted this model at independence. They merely replaced the British interest with the government and eliteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests, and left the citizens in the cold. In essence, our Police force is founded on providing security to the government, the elites, and their interests. They do not have anything to do with securing our communities. This should explain the anti-people or community posture of our law enforcement agents. Again, it should explained why the Police would readily read the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Riot Actsâ&#x20AC;?, that provides for punishment for engaging in impermissible assembly, to the citizens when they suspect that the interests of the government or the â&#x20AC;&#x153;big shotsâ&#x20AC;? are under threat. Unfortunately, it is the same elites and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;big shotsâ&#x20AC;? that are supposedly discussing our future at the National Conference. Over the years, the way and manner the Police have conducted their activities have been reviled, condemned and rightfully so because their conduct have not been in the interest of the citizens. No one captured the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perception of the NPF so eloquently like Professor Sabella Abidde in his article, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Nigerian Police Forceâ&#x20AC;?, published by gamji.com. He describes the NPF as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the         institutional decadenceâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a cathedral of debaucheryâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;corrupt and easily corruptedâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;lazy and loaf around     Â&#x2026; Â&#x2019;'        &  %Â&#x2026; ~    Â&#x2019;  is therefore not uncommon that when university students feel like venting their rage, they go in search of the Police. When soldiers want people to smack around and buildings to burn, they go in search of the Police and Police stations. When labour unions want to release some of their pent-up anger, they seek the Police. Not even the politicians give a hoot about the police...â&#x20AC;?

Business Interview

Global poverty rating:Govt, citizens sing discordant tunes A recent World Bank global per capital ratio rating which ranked Nigeria as the 5th poorest country in the world has pitched the citizens and the government in a war of relevance and truth with the President saying the assertion is false and the citizens saying otherwise. JOHNMARK UKOKO reports.

T

he 2013 global per capital ratio rating of the World Bank rated Nigeria the 5th poorest country in its human per capital ratio as over 70 percent of Nigerians live on less on one United States of America dollar per day. The president and members of his economic team were quick to dismiss the report, on the ground that rich Nigerians have the highest numbers of private jets in the world. While it is a fact that Nigerians own many private jets and the most expensive and fast cars in the world, over 80 percent of Nigerians still live in abject poverty. An economist, Mr. Joe Idonije of Crystal Y' 8     ' &   8     '! ! Saturday Newswatch recently, said that it is wrong for government to based the fact that few Nigerians are super rich to conclude that Nigerians are not poor and the country is not a poor nation. According to him, it is wrong to rate Nigeria as a rich nation because few of our nationals own â&#x20AC;&#x153;the highest numbers of private jetsâ&#x20AC;? in the world. The fact that some of our people built palatial mansions of millions of naira, locked them up without any one living in them does not mean that Nigeria is a rich country. Idonije disclosed that many Nigerians 

 $    "    era and time, adding that there are many Nigerian families of six or more, who still live in one room apartment. The economist stressed that the global economic recession, and the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic woes have impacted negatively on the lives of poor Nigerians. He noted that the lack of the payment of social security stipends to unemployed adults in the country has compounded the poverty situation in the country, adding that there are millions of Nigerians who do not have any source of income to live on. In his words, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Apart from Ekiti State which pay some form of stipends to their elderly citizens, no form of social security is paid in Nigeria, where more than 70 million are unemployed.

Another Nigerian, Mr. Abel Igbudu, the principal partner of Cowries Network Limited, a network marketing owner, told Saturday Newswatch recently that many Nigerian adults have been unemployed for many years, adding that the quality of lives of these Nigerians will be very low.

This call to remembrance the ill fated Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) botched recruitment exercise where over 650,000 applicants applied for about 4,500 positions, as a case study that many Nigerian youths are unemployed or

During a recent radio call in programme, monitored in Lagos, some respondents agreed with the World Bank that many Nigerians are very poor as a result of governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfavourable policies as well as the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic situation. One of the callers, Mr. Uganmadu Asiegbu, who called from Orlu, Imo State, stressed that many Nigerians who live in the rural areas are grappling with poverty, adding that corruption menace in the three tiers of government has compounded the poverty situation of Nigerians, mostly residents of the rural areas. He lamented that many aged in the villages, whose children have left the '    '      a day, adding that some of the elderly citizens practically beg to feed. In his words, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrong for government to access Nigerian quality of lives by the few super rich in Asokoro, Matiama, Lekki, Ajah and Victoria Garden City, all in Abuja and Lagos, in addition to few super rich in Port Harcourt. Let the President visit Ebonyi, Sokoto, Benue and other rural communities in Nigeria and see the quality of lives of majority of Nigerians.

Panacea to building collapse Recently, many buildings have collapsed across the country, and various stakeholders have adduced reasons behind the incidents. Surprisingly however, none of the owners of the buildings or the developers have been prosecuted. A cross section of Nigerians has put the question whether there is a way to prevent buildings from collapsing. JOHNMARK UKOKO reports.

+

any houses have collapsed in the recent years across the country, leaving in its wake loss of lives and billions of naira. Both completed houses and on-going building projects have came down in heaps of sand and dust with a lot of people unaware of the reason behind it. Recently, the Nigeria Society of Engineers (NSE) suggested that the National Assembly should enact a law, jailing for life anyone whose actions or inaction caused a building collapse.

This assertion however, is faulted by the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), whose image maker told Saturday Newswatch that his agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigation into the causes of building collapse in the country has not identify the main cause. He added that all brands of cement manufactured in the country were of high quality as made in Nigerian cement are in high demand in the countries were they  5"        consumers, artisans in the building and construction sectors and professionals are in the best position to know which brand  % A respondent said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The claim by "    Â&#x201E;Â&#x201A;%       Â&#x201A;%    & #     &  banned is not borne out of their love for Nigerians.

Gov Fashola while that the brand was of low quality?â&#x20AC;? Despite all this claims and counter claims, Saturday Newswatchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigation has shown that substandard building materials used in the construction of houses by building contractors and artisans are one of the main causes of building collapse in the country.     !    *&5  substandard and fake building materials from China and other parts of Asia has led many building contractors, artisans and building developers to use them in building and constructions, leading to the collapse many houses. { & +% +&& &   " ! said he has been in building business for  " Â&#x201E;       sub-standard building materials are everywhere in the country.

The high cost of quality and genuine building materials have made some project owners or contractors to buy sub-standard building materials. The truth          &  collapse arose because the contractors and artisans use sub-standard building materials, poor quality cement and blocks, and a host of other factors.â&#x20AC;? Stakeholders are blaming high cost of cement as being partly responsible for the cases of increase in building collapse in the recent times. They say many people who are into building are not rich enough to buy           Â&#x201A;Â&#x192;Â&#x192;  currently sold.

Gov Oshiomhole They say the cases of building collapse will continue unabated as long as the price of cement, which is a major item in the building and construction industry continue to go beyond the rich of many Nigerians.

There must be strong a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;policeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; man for Messi. Eagles must also avoid instilling fear of Messi in the entire side. Such move could result into panic and result into making some silly and costly mistakes. After all the Argentine does not play with both legs at the same time therefore marking him out tight and intelligently remains the only way out,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he noted. Kpakor restates that

He said the competition would boost the popularity of sports in the South-West region, improve sports business and marketing as well as encourage more youths to become sportsmen. ``Governors of the participating states can also reach out to neighbouring countries to organise similar studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sports competitions. ``Our political leaders are now coming to the realisation that sport is a viable tool for education, culture and economic diplomacy. ``It is important that the South-West governors continue to host this event because of its social, economic, mental   "    students and the sportsloving public,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said.

Why Akwa lost top position T

A

kwa United Football Club of Uyo surprised many Nigerian League watchers at the commencement of the 2013/14 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), when the Governor Godswill Akpabioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boys handed Gombe United       at the Uyo Township Stadium   &    maximum points. They followed it up with  ! !  8   Nasarawa United and another victory at home against visiting Kaduna United and that was followed also by another away draw against El-Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri, thereby gathering a total of eight points in four matches. Akwa continued in the good run of form until the sixth week and deservedly led the table and on the seventh week, they lost the lead to the present occupiers, Sharks Football Club of Port Harcourt and Nigerians did not know why

 &   ""   position after Week 14 matches on Wednesday as they lost to Bayelsa United by alone goal. Though nobody can say that Akwa are not doing well considering the fact that they       "  side in the (Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) because their position on the league log at the moment has surprised many. Having said that however, what people did not is the real reasons, why the team lost their lead on the league table and this reasons are what League Watch is about to be make public. An insider, who probably does not want his name in print for fear    "&     League Watch that the problem is predicated on the money as according him: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole problems of Akwa United is predicated on lack of money,â&#x20AC;? he began. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I must be very frank with you. The problem is lack of money for the players. Can you

believe that the players are yet to receive their April salary and May is about to end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sign-on fees being owned some of the players '   %  &  aware that LMC abolished the issue of sign-on fee from this season and asked clubs to pay the previous ones already owed the players but here in Akwa, the players are yet to be paid their arrears of signon fees and salaries are not regular. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, the match bonuses are coming as at when due. The players are not being owed any match bonuses but they need their salaries to enable them face their challenges because almost all of them are bread winners of their respective families and it  $  % â&#x20AC;&#x153;Again, it is unbelievable that the team has no bus of their !     Â&#x2020;& $  them. At times they will go and hire a rickety bus that will keep the players on the road thereby risking their lives and disorganising them when they have away games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even as I am speaking with you, (Tuesday morning) we have a match against Bayelsa United in Benin, the players are still here because there is no bus yet to enable them start the journey to Benin to enable them honour their mid-week match against Bayelsa United,â&#x20AC;? the insider lamented. He, however, expressed the belief that the state government led by Godswill Akpabio is  (      !  '!       solutions to the problems.

Complacency cost us Abia Warriors match â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Amele

M

   Bayelsa United, George Amele, has sensationally declared that complacency robbed them of victory over Abia Warriors of Umuahia. The team against all expectations, defeated Bayelsa United last midweek match by 3-1, at Bayelsa United home ground. Before the match, Abia Warriors were placed 19th after 10 matches with 11 points to  !    $  & 

victory over Bayelsa United and the last weekend home victory ensured that the Abia Y      ! occupying placed 14th with 17 points after 12 matches. However, Amele said they had learnt their lessons assuring that such a thing would never be allowed to happen again in the near future. Amele stated this in a chat with League Watch during the week saying that every of their matches would be approached as if it is the last match for the club. He, however, said that such things do happen in football as they never expected Abia Warriors to post any threat to them but it turned out that the Warriors from Umuahia surprised them. According to him: â&#x20AC;&#x153;These things do happen in football. But the truth is that we never expected Abia Warriors to beat us but it happened and we have put it behind us,â&#x20AC;? he began. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we underrated

On their part, Nembe City would like to prove that they        after the early challenges they &$   &  8+2

refusal to allow them be part of the 2013/14 league season for their inability to meet the stipulated conditions but was later prevailed upon by well meaning members of the society that led to their rescinding their decision.

It is certainly going to be an interesting encounter as fans would be treated with the best of football artistry as both sides play good football. The experience of Sani Kaita will be brought to bear in this encounter by Enyimba, as the former international marked his debut with a goal that gave Enyimba victory in the game against Kaduna United at the Enyimba International Stadium last Sunday. So, the two sides are going  '      &       maximum points at stake tomorrow afternoon inside the Enyimba International Stadium, Aba.

them because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see how Abia Warriors could have NPFL MID WEEK RESULT beaten us by 3-1. That is not to Bayelsa 1-0 Akwa Utd say that they are not good, of Kaduna 2-2 Pillars course they are good but when El-Kanemi 1-1 Enyimba you consider the fact that we Heartland 1-1 Abia Warriors beat notable names in the league like Enyimba, Rangers Nembe 1-0 Dolphins you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect Bayelsa Lobi 3-1 FC Taraba United to lose to Abia Warrior. Nasarawa 2-0 Giwa FC â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am not trying to Crown 2-1 Warri Wolves disrespect them and at that Sharks 1-0 Rangers time, they were second to the last on the league table that is MATCH DAY 14 why it is surprising. Akwa United FC vs Lobi Stars FC â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having said that, we have FC Taraba vs Heratland FC learnt our lesson and I want to assure you that that will not Abia Warriors FC vs Crown FC happen again,â&#x20AC;?

home matches,â&#x20AC;? Etu began. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are where we are at the moment because we have more away matches and the reverse is going to be the case

in the second stanza. Having said that, I want to state that we have not done badly is just that we are not yet where we would have loved to be,â&#x20AC;? Etu said.

Scholes wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a brilliant scoring record for his country with 38 goals in 89 internationals, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played in eight World Cup games without a goal. You expect more of him. If Wayne is going to be one of the best footballers in the world, this World Cup is where he has to produce. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe Wayne has felt the pressure of playing for England in the last two World Cups when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not scored.

Special Report Jungle Justice: Barbaric verdict of angr y public

Killing of suspects before police arrival at crime scenes is assuming alarming proportion. There is a long list of unverified suspects that have been erroneously lynched. TUNDE BUSARI reports.

O

n May 5, 2014, combination of his choice career and, most importantly, mother luck, raced to the aid of Adekunle Adedeji, 31 in Ile-Ife, Osun State when a mob almost snuffed life out of him. The freelance broadcaster was accused of an attempt to kidnap a seven-year-old Godwin Ndubisi while he was helping the kid to cross to the other side of the road along Onpetu Street.

Quick intervention of some elders, who led him to the palace of the Ooni of Ife, saved the situation. Policemen from â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Division Moore were subsequently contacted. A search in his room bailed him out and further investigation also confirmed that Adedeji on the fateful day went to the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) IleIfe to submit a demo disk for his proposed programme on the medium. Same goes for Ifaremi Femi, an Ifa adherent in Gbongan, also in Osun State. In the manner of Adedeji, Femi also escaped being

lynched by a mob for the same accusation. The 32-year-old, who goes about the township offering prayers from street to street, suddenly found himself surrounded by a group of boys shouting and accusing him of hunting for kids to abduct. Femi was, however, saved by quick arrival of a team of policemen from Gbongan Divisional Headquarters.

Similarly, at AbuleEgba, a Lagos suburb, a woman was accused of attempting to kidnap three primary school pupils, and another alleged to have kidnapped two children on May 7 at Iyana-Ipaja.The F   Q  and reduced to ashes minutes afterwards

But, it was a different story for few other suspected kidnappers who have since met their death in the hands of angry mob and died in a most bestial manner reserved only for the candidates of hellfire. Penultimate Wednesday, at Ijoko in Ogun State, three young men, who posed as commercial transporters, were burnt alive when the girl, Oluwole Elizabeth in their bus raised alarm on realizing their motive. The cry of the 28-year-old attracted the attention of the passers-by, who forced the bus to a halt and passed an instant death sentence on them. When a team from Sango Ota Divisional Police Headquarters arrived the scene, it was the charred remains of the suspects they met. The mob had dispersed. However, Elizabeth was found and taken to the Ogun State Police Command Headquarters, Eleweeran, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital. Similarly, at Abule-Egba, a Lagos suburb, a woman was accused of attempting to kidnap three primary school pupils, and another alleged to have kidnapped two children on May 7 at Iyana-Ipaja.The duo ended in flames and reduced to ashes minutes afterwards. It took the Osemawe of Ondo, Continued on Page 66

Special Report

Barbaric outrage of desperate public Continued from Page 65

Oba Dr Victor Kiladejo an emergency meeting with the elders of the town to stop the youth of the town from killing and setting ablaze people with mental disability. In the last three weeks, no fewer than 12 were beaten to death with all sorts of objects at different parts of the town. According to a source, the monarch argued that the act of the mob is a travesty of justice because no parents in the town had raised alarm of loss of kids. This has made the recent upsurge in jungle justice, allegedly perpetrated by the seemingly overzealous public, a frightening trend, following the alleged increase in kidnapping for ritual purposes. Saturday Newswatch gathered that one notable reason provoking the gruesome killing of the suspected kidnappers is the public alleged distrust of the law enforcement agencies with a particular reference to Nigeria Police. The Nigeria Police, which is statutorily responsible for quelling breaking down of law and order, is enmeshed with the allegation of compromising their obligation to the citizens. Chief Gabriel Giwa-Amu of the AG Giwa-Amu & Co. Legal Practitioners, Ikeja, Lagos, who had in the past been a victim of the allegation, came hard on Nigeria Police with a judgment calling the government to act fast in overhauling the force to save the nation of impending anarchy symbolized by jungle justice. “The act is an expression of the populace frustration on the unsatisfactory performance of its law enforcement agencies. It is not that they don’t know that they are supposed to report the matter to the police. “An average Nigerian is educated to that level, especially in the Southern part of the country, but their concern over the treatment of the matter given their previous experience, easily tempts them to want to take law into their hands as we have witnessed in some parts of the country lately. “In other words, if the law enforcement agencies are known for rising to their responsibility with all sense of honesty, there would not be public frustration in the first place, let alone a recourse to jungle justice,” he stated. Sharing the blame with the police, according to Amu, is Nigeria judicial system. He said,” Many Magistrates don’t even understand the rule of the court and the law they are supposed to implement or enforce thereby giving room for the populace to

prefer the rudeless or lawless procedure to achieve justice. Again, what do you expect in a court system that enjoys arbitrary adjournment?” Another legal practitioner, Barrister AbdulGaniy Bello of Oloruntele Chambers in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital lamented the rate of corruption in the police and attributed it to the public disrespect for the agency, resulting in self-help to justice. While recalling his experience, Bello said, “It is so bad that a complainant is turned to suspect after money has changed hand. We have seen an instance where an accuse is caught for unlawful possession of human head and it has taken the police 18 years to give forensic report to ascertain whether the head is that of a man or that of a chimpanzee. The police don’t do investigation. What they are good at is to forcefully extract statement from the innocent with a view to shielding the criminal at the expense of the innocent. But government too is not helping the matter. Government failure to fund the police adequately affects the morale of the police. They are not ready to put in their best, especially when they know that if anything happens to them, they are on their own.” But, the police claim that Nigerian public is a clog in their wheel with their alleged (public) penchant to escape justice at all cost. Bello surprisingly rose in defence of the police claim, describing Nigerians as enemy of truth, who always seek a way of compromising the institution. “They believe too much on who you know rather than the substance of the matter. They look for the DPO (Divisional Police Officer) and the judge as the case may be, all to lobby and compromise them and win unjust

favour,” he said. The tragedy of the act, it was learnt, is that many unfortunate ones have been trapped in the hand of the mob and never lived to give the narrative of their tale. Police Public Relations Officer of Osun State Command, Folashade Odoro, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, lamented this and also expressed her regret over the trend. “Can you just imagine that when our men got to the scene of the incident at Gbongan, they did not see any victim the mob claimed the man wanted to kidnap. And nobody complained that his or her child was kidnapped. “As I am speaking there is no evidence to link the suspect to kidnapping case. It is therefore, imperative to inform the public so

It is the statutory duty of the agency to investigate the allegation with professionalism and all sincerity. This is because of the fact that the man who kills armed robber is guilty of murder. When an armed robber is beaten, the law calls it an assault. In other words, law protects criminal that is brought to court of competent jurisdiction.

that innocent citizens would not be killed by people who take law into their hands without verifying facts,” she said. His difference with the police notwithstanding, Amu frowns at the act, arguing that no matter how aggrieved the public are, the position of the law is that a report should be made to the police. “It is the statutory duty of the agency to investigate the allegation with professionalism and all sincerity. This is because of the fact that the man who kills armed robber is guilty of murder. When an armed robber is beaten, the law calls it an assault. In other words, law protects criminal that is brought to court of competent jurisdiction. In a nutshell, jungle justice is crime under any law. Police Public Relations Officer of the Federal Special AntiRobbery Squad (FEDSARS), Lekan Ogundare, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, expectedly warned the public against jungle justice. “It is against the rule of law and natural justice. It is archaic, barbaric and universally unacceptable. It also does not conform with the modern police theories and law enforcement,” Ogundare stressed. Interestingly, Lagos State Government has come up with a strong warning that perpetrators of acts of “jungle justice” in the state would not be treated with kid glove. The State Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Ade Ipaye in a statement in Alausa, Ikeja, said though kidnapping and other criminal acts are condemnable, “it is equally unacceptable for citizens to take laws into their own hands by summarily punishing or killing those suspected of any criminal act. The mob may well be wrong and the helpless victim(s) may be anyone’s child or relative.”

Special Report

Agonising cries of Jos bomb victims Gyang Bere, Jos

T

he physically as well as psychologically wounds are still very fresh. The bandage wrapping the victims like mummies can be seen from afar; an indication that the patients were in severe pains. Most of the survivors are yet to wake from the trauma they went through as a result of the Tuesday bomb blast that rocked Jos, the capital of Plateau State. Saturday Newswatch gathered that most of the victims are still currently unconscious in various competent hospitals within the Jos metropolis and environs. However, Franklin Plangnan is grateful for being alive though she is still unconscious and in severe pains at the Jos University Teaching Hospital. Believed to be a chemist, Plangnan, was working at a shop opposite the scene of the bomb blast adjacent the Old Jos University Teaching Hospital, suffered burns on her body. When Saturday Newswatch visited her on the sick bed, Plangnan could hardly speak; she marely thanked God in-between mutters, saying: “God, you are great, you saved my life… I am in pains… my legs… somebody hold my legs please.” She continued: “The pain is too much, God come and take the pains away from me; I can’t bear it, thank you Jesus, thank you Jesus,” she cried out. Plangnan was wrapped all over in bandage, her eyes closed, as she kept gnashing her teeth in pains thereby arresting the attention of the Minister of Water Resource, Mrs Sarah Ochekpe and Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Hajiya Zainab Maina, who were in JUTH to commiserate with the victims. Saturday Newswatch findings at the time revealed that none of her relations was aware that Plangnan

was at the hospital. There was the possibility that they were still searching for her or had believed that she was either dead or not at the scene of the blast. Another survivor who narrowly escaped, but with severe burns, Mrs. Yakubu, who is currently receiving treatment at the Jos University Teaching Hospital, expressed thanks to God for protecting her life. Mrs. Yakubu who spoke amidst tears, recounted the gory expressed: “I cannot tell you how it all happen, I was passing along the Terminus Market, when I heard a loud sound, then I didn’t

know what happened. I just heard people crying, and I tried to open my eyes but could only see figures of people on the ground. “Later I noticed I was being

carried by some people who came to rescue us. I didn’t know where I was taken to until the following day when I woke, and I saw myself on the hospital bed. None of my family members knows that I am in the hospital. I believe they thought I am dead because my son knows that I was around the terminus,” she cried. Hadiza Ajiji is another pathetic victim of the blast who narrowly escaped, but also sustained serious injuries. She narrated: “Three of us were inside a Keke Napep tricycle close to the motor park in front of the old JUTH when suddenly a J5 bus us carrying bags of maize overtook us. It was not up to 5 minutes later when a loud sound like thunder erupted. I don’t even know if those in the tricycle with me survived,” Ajiji said amid tears. The survivor gathered courage and continued, “You can see I was seriously affected by the fire, but I thank God that I’m alive.” Meanwhile, Elizabeth Musa who also sustained serious injuries said, “I went to the market to purchase some items, and I was close to where the bomb exploded. That’s all I know because when I recovered, I found in the hospital.” Suleiman Ismail who stays in Dogon Karfe also narrated his experience: “My mother sent me to the park to deliver a message to the village, so I was getting closer to the park, I heard a bang, and that was all I remembered until I woke to find myself in the hospital.” Another victim, Danjuma Samuel, who could not talk as at the time of our visitation, was just nodding his head, in apparent show that all was well. Since the incident occurred on Tuesday, families and residents of Jos, are still searching for their beloved ones. Danjuma Adamu, whose father died while receiving treatment at JUTH, was very sober, thanking God that they found and were able to speak to him before he died when some others were not that lucky. Also, it is worthy of mention, though sad that seven final year medical students of the Jos University Teaching Hospital, Jos, were among the dead, four of which are members of Redeemed Christian Church of God. Saturday Newswatch gathered that the students, who usually read together, had just concluded their lecture, and had gone to buy something from the market before they met their untimely death.

very year, the animals meet to choose a new King. One year, the cheekiest of all the monkeys danced around the animals, turning cartwheels and swinging from the branches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Very good,â&#x20AC;? cried the animals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Very clever, you deserve to be king for a year.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Huh!â&#x20AC;? said Freddie the Fox. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That monkey is just a fool. Watch this.â&#x20AC;? Nearby, there was a trap with some

meat in it. Freddie said to the monkey: â&#x20AC;&#x153;As you are our new king, I want to give you a gift. Here is a nice piece of meat I was keeping just for myself.â&#x20AC;? With a squeak of delight the monkey leapt on it, and the trap snapped shut. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My    (Â&#x2026; said Freddie as he opened the trap and let him out, â&#x20AC;&#x153;if you want to be a king of all the animals, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to learn to be clever.â&#x20AC;?

Through the house what busy joy, Just because the infant boy Has a tiny tooth to show! I have got a double row, All as white, and all as small; Yet no one cares for mine at all. He can say but half a word, Yet that single soundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preferred To all the words that I can say In the longest summer day. He cannot walk, yet if he put With mimic motion out his foot, As if he thought he were advancing, Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prized more than my best dancing. ~Charles and Mary Lamb

Tongue twister The Loch Ness Monster is a legendary animal that supposedly resides in the depths of Loch Ness, a long narrow lake situated in rural Scotland. Stories concerning the monster date back to the 6th century A.D. The region was in complete isolation until a road was built alongside the lake in 1933. Then large numbers of people travelled through the    Â  Â&#x201A;  

 thousands have reported seeing something in the lake. Most reports depict a long neck surging from the water with a small head of an unknown creature. Pictures have even been taken of this â&#x20AC;&#x153;creatureâ&#x20AC;?, but most scientists however, refuse to believe any creature of this kind lives in the Loch Ness. They claim that most reported cases are simply products of overactive imaginations,

and as for the pictures, scientists say they are not lucid enough to distinguish items clearly, and some pictures are dubbed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;fakeâ&#x20AC;?. A large number of non- scientists believe however, that the Loch Ness is the site of a breeding colony of large unknown aquatic animals, due to the fact that Loch   Â&#x2021;

Â&#x2C6; summer investigations have been conducted Â&#x2021; Â&#x2030;Â&#x160;Â&#x2039;Â&#x152; |   Â&#x2C6;  Â&#x201A;       Â Â&#x2C6;  indicate that there just might be some unknown animal in the depths of the Loch Ness. Evidence however, is inconclusive, and the controversy continues.

of building collapse in the country, players in building and construction sectors have recommended that to stop building collapse in the country, government should embrace the Nigeria Society of Engineersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recommendation, which says that any found culpable in building collapse should be arrested and prosecuted. They say many of the landlords and developers whose buildings collapsed in the past were never prosecuted or sent to jail to serve as deterrent. They called on professional associations connected to building and construction, such as engineers, architects, builders, and other associations to live up to their responsibilities. Stakeholders say professional associations in the building and construction sectors have a share of the blame, as they have not live up to expectations. They say corruption and incompetence have been the lots of many local professional associations. Experts appealed to the state  '    '   ! are responsible for building supervision   "" '  "#&"  "# & as most of the building collapse in the past would have been prevented if the  '  2  ' "   functions professionally.

Beyond the Bar I would have been a tailor â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Barrister Popoola Ayodele Olalere

W

ith 21years experience at the Bar, Barrister Segun Popoola cannot be described as a greenhorn in the legal practice in Nigeria. Suave with much experience as a legal practitioner, Popoola is the type who allows his job to speak for him. A media shy person, the Osun State born legal practitioner is one that does

  & "& % {     it took several phone calls to him by Saturday Newswatch before he agreed to the interview. +        one would have taken him as a lawyer because of his gentleness. Call him a man of the people, you are not wrong. Unlike many lawyers who carries themselves high and moves about with an aura of pride like a demigod, Barrister Popoolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s humility has endeared him to many people who daily throng his plush chamber at Apapa, Lagos for professional service       % Many of such ones are those who '  &  & (     abilities to secure the services of a !    &% )& they see in him a man who is ready to assist the less privileged and downtrodden in spite of his status as a rich and successful lawyer. However, for Barrister Popoola, his career spanning over two decades is laid with many stories of life threatening situations in the course of doing his job. Born in Osun State but grew up in Ibadan, the father of three was born without the proverbial silver spoon. His father was a fashion designer otherwise known as tailor. He was also a cloth merchant. Having lost his mother when he was a teenager            two children, his father had wanted him to take after him in the profession (tailoring). )  !    &  Segun was still in the secondary school, his father was already teaching him how to sow cloths and planning of buying him a sewing machine and rent a shop for him so as to join him   Â&#x20AC; % )   3Y& 4 ! & carry on his legacy.â&#x20AC;?

younger, it was the practise then that parents always wanted their children to do the same job they are doing. My father had the same feelings. He gave birth to two boys; I and my brother and because I am the eldest child, he felt I should be a cloth merchant and a tailor like himself. I lost my mother when I was 11years old so my father didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want anyone of his children to stay away from him,â&#x20AC;? he told Saturday Newswatch. While his father was planning for him to succeed him in the job, Segun had another plan for himself; he wanted to become a lawyer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While I was still in secondary school, my father insisted i must come to his shop whenever we left school. Whenever I got there, he would give me cloth materials to cut, tape rule and asked him to practice with it. One day, he told me that I was going to inherit his shop and business and urged me to mastered it so that if he died suddenly, I could continue the business. He bought me a sewing          secondary school, I had already master it,â&#x20AC;? he said. He added â&#x20AC;&#x153;But deep down I knew I was not cut out for such, I wanted to further my education and study law. So one day, I called him and told him that he should allow me to further my education and that my interest was in law. He shouted at me, saying that it would cost him a fortune to send me to school to study law. I begged him and promised him that I would assist him by doing menial jobs to get money to pay for my education. I         by learning tailoring from him and that he also should make me happy by supporting me. He eventually agreed and at the end sponsored my education.â&#x20AC;?

Politics Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll surmount Boko Amosunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agenda in Ogun Haram â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ijaw leader Femi Onasanya

Ijaw National Congress (INC) is a sociopolitical organisation of the Ijaw-speaking people of Nigeria. The position of the INC on issues is regarded as the position of the Ijaw people. Ambaiowe, in an interaction with a group of journalists spoke on the carnage being perpetrated by the terrorist Islamic group, Boko Haram; the over 200 secondary girls a terrorist organization kidnapped from Chibok; President Goodluck Jonathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perceived second term bid; institutionalised corruption and problems associated with nurturing democracy. NATH OMAME, Jr. was there for Saturday Newswatch.

I

t is a few days before marking another democracy Ă&#x;day. What in your view has Nigeria achieved as a nation? The high level of insecurity in the  &  !     $ on the economy is quite worrisome. Ordinarily, we should celebrate this feat but the insecurity in the country appears to dampen our enthusiasm. The Boko Haram insurgency does not allow us to say with every       !    % )  &    $  % Nigeria is at the precipice. It is like Emperor Nero who was feasting !   & ! %  ( that we have a very big problem in our hands. But in all these, we have to thank God because we are still a united country. Between 1999 and now, we can agreed that the best form of military dictatorship cannot be compared with the most malevolent democracy. The freedom of expression and the liberty to say things the way we  (  !     $  between civil rule and the military. So, my take is that as a Nigerian, for    !      ' ( an all-inclusive national conference that is ongoing now; it is a major plus in our democracy. President Goodlcuk Jonathan appears to have been so criticized for non-performance. As somebody from the same race with him, how do you assess his administration? Democracy has guaranteed the freedom of Nigerians. I commend President Jonathan for seeing democracy the way it is. I think he is a thorough and complete civilian. His approach to opposing views has made him a stabiliser. Who is a leader that would have appeared in times like this that will not be abused. For me, it is not about the abuses. The President has remained focused especially in the face of the crises in the country. He has achieved so much in just a few years. He has even done much more than the previous governments that we have had in this country. There is a grand plan for the reburial of Isaac Adaka Boro. What   Â Â&#x2021; Â&#x2021;   Â&#x2C6; the Ijaw people? Let me approach that question

from the Ijaw traditional and cultural points if view. Until an Ijaw man or woman has his or her           home soil, there is a missing link. Before this time, an Ijaw man or woman can die anywhere; you can take the body and bury it anywhere. But you have to take some shave    &       the toe nails and these would be taken to his motherland and given    &% )   && and tradition of our people. But the circumstances surrounding Boroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death was such that access to his body was completely denied. His family, his kinsmen were not allowed to see his remains. Boro was not just an ordinary man. He was a hero, a champion. You know how a hero is buried. This was not done in those days after he was killed the way they killed him. His reburial is to satisfy the tradition and cultural framework so that it will assuage the feelings of Ijaw people whose hero was not given a proper burial. There is no place where we can say this is the particular place he was buried. How much is the Nigerian government involved in this whole arrangement especially now that

We will surely surmount Boko Haram as a country. I am particularly happy with the voices that are coming from Nigeria and outside the country. Hear what the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia said. He said the kidnapping of children and women are not part of Islam

A

Adebowale an Ijaw man is the President of the country? The Nigerian Army has been cooperating with the Bayelsa State government. Since we have no reason to believe that there is a resistance from the authorities, we believe that everything is on the right path. It is the aspect of how much in terms of money involved that I cannot disclose at the moment. That will not be necessary at this point. Nigeria is bleeding at the moment. The kidnap of over 200 school girls in Chibok and the high rate of insecurity in the country have drawn international concerns. Do you see this as a highly orchestrated conspiracy against the President? I had said it before that Nigeria   $        to the precipice. I chose those words carefully. Let me make it unequivocally clear as the INC president to Nigerians and the international community through this avenue that the Ijaw people cannot be fooled. All right- thinking Nigerians that have watched events in this country between the transition period of the late President Umaru Yarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Adua to former President Jonathan particularly the 2011 election, will know that Boko Haram is intentionally a northern Nigeria creation to do this devilish work that it is doing. In the military, what they are doing now is called problem reaction solution. Somebody wants something from a given population and he is not           &        ! &  solve. This same person who created the problem is now shouting for help because he knows not how to solve the problem that he created in the  "% )  7  { ! Azazi was a National Security Adviser (NSA), and they were shouting that President Jonathan should change him because the bombings had not stopped.

It is no news that the present administration at inception held   ' 2  &   investors as well as a breakfast meeting with the governor and "    &     while a routine visit to various companies across the state as a way of sustaining the good rapports is ongoing. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edition, as stated by the government would be an avenue to showcase the comparative advantage the Gateway State has over others in agriculture. It is no news that Ogun is the highest producer of cassava in the country aside the fact that its soil              rubber and several other cash crops. Investors from several parts of the country and beyond would converge on Abeokuta, the state capital soon to see the opportunities that abound in doing agricultural business in the Gateway State. As a way of encouraging corporate organisations and

individuals to keep up the tempo, few days ago, the state government honoured faithful tax payers at both corporate and individual levels and assured that it would not relent in using taxes judiciously for laudable projects. Apart from creating a secured and an enabling environment for business to thrive the Governor Amosun-led administration has aggressively transformed the ancient Gateway State from the 19th Century to a 21st Century state, according to the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo during the       2  * ' 1 & Â&#x201A;Â&#x201E; Â&#x201A;Â&#x192;Â&#x2021;Â&#x201E;% )  * '    strange to the people of Ogun State.

Heavy weights square up for Ebonyi North senatorial contest Kenneth Ofoma, Abakaliki

I

ntense scheming has commenced among aspirants for Ebonyi North senatorial district election even as more and more political heavy weights join the fray. Ever since Governor Martin Elechi announced that power will shift to Ebonyi South senatorial district, those who were initially eyeing the governorship seat from Ebonyi North have turned their        % Most of the known aspirants so far are from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Aside Minister of Power and Steel under General Sani Abacha(now deceased), Chief Godwin Ogbaga, who has openly declared for the seat, other notable heavy weights currently oiling their political machinery include a former governor of the state, Dr. Sam Egwu; a former senator that represented the zone between 1999 and 2003, Sylvanus Ngele; and the incumbent senator, Chris Nwankwo. In Ebonyi North senatorial district, Egwu is said to be preparing seriously to join the race. Senator Nwankwo, senior brother to Governor Elechiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Josephine, and a respected elder statesman from Izzi clan, is occupying the position presently. Nwankwo was earlier touted as a prospective candidate for the governorship race, but may re-contest the Senate seat if the "  6   &  slot to Ebonyi South senatorial zone. So, should senator Nwankwo want to re-contest  "    !   clash with Egwu, Ngele and Ogbaga and this may lead to a "     % The North senatorial district !    (     the governorship seat through Dr. Egwu (1999-2007) who passed it to the incumbent, Elechi who is from the Central senatorial district and now on his second term. That is why many public commentators believe him when he said power must go to Ebonyi South in 2015. Ebonyi North senatorial district is made up of four local government areas Abakaliki, Izzi, Ebonyi and Ohaukwu. Egwu hails from Ohaukwu which stands alone as distinct ethnic group, while the remaining three share common ethnic origin (generically called Izzi clan). However, within the Izzi clan there are two major blocs; the Igbojima and Umuera. But Senator Ngele hails from the Abakaliki area, the ancestral home of Izzi clan. Senator Chris Nwankwo hails from Izzi Local Government Area, while Chief Ogbaga is from Ebonyi Local Government Area. All the local government

Egwu areas within the zone, with the exception of Ebonyi Local Government Area, have tested the senatorial seat. Perhaps, that is why during his recent declaration to contest the seat, Ogbaga argued that it is the turn of his local government to go to the Senate. Ogbaga told journalists that  !    Â&#x2020;&  occupy the seat, assuring that  ! & (  $ % He noted that he is favoured by the rotation of the senatorial position, having gone round the other three council areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the moment, Ebonyi is one of the local governments in the zone that has not held any senatorial position,â&#x20AC;? Ogbaga said, pointing out that another factor in his favour is that none of the previous senators had gone more than one tenure. Said he: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Abakaliki Local Government Area, we have had the late Senator Polycap Nwite, Senator Christopher Nshii, and Senator Nguji Ngele. In Izzi Local Government Area, we have had the late Senator Andrew Nwankwo and serving Senator Chris Nwankwo; In Ohaukwu Local Government Area, we have Senator Anthony Agbo and former Governor Egwu, who, of course, represented the Ebonyi North slot,â&#x20AC;? he recalled, adding that â&#x20AC;&#x153;at the moment, Ebonyi Local Government Area is one of the local governments in the zone that has not held any senatorial position.â&#x20AC;? However, political analysts believe that in politics, nothing is cast on stone. Most times, calculations are based on  $    "  exigencies. But there are still some politicians who would want consideration for election of anybody to be based on track records and individual merits. This is where the objectivity and political sagacity of the electorate will be tasked, if only they would       % Dr. Sam Ominyi Egwu

Before his election as governor in 1999, Ewgu had served as Commissioner for Education under the military governorship of Navy Capt Walter Feghabor. Before then, he was a lecturer at the then College of Agricultural Science, Abakaliki Campus of the Enugu State University of Science and Technology which was later converted to the Ebonyi State University. After eight years on the saddle as governor, Egwu handed over to Governor Elechi in 2007 and was not long appointed Minister of Education by the late President Umaru Musa Yarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Adua. As a governor, Egwu laid the foundation for

Elechi Ebonyi State. He established the Ebonyi State University and introduced foreign educational programmes for Ebonyi youths among other things. He is considered a very colourful and compassionate politician who likes to spread the goodies to everybody. Although he is from a minority local government, Ohaukwu, his enormous goodwill within and outside the state, especially the fact that the incumbent, Governor Elechi may decide to do pay him back, is a huge thing going for him. Senator Sylvester Ngele Senator Ngele was in the Senate between1999 and 2003. He was chairman, Senate   {   ! and still very close to the then Senate President, Anyim Pius Anyim, who is currently the Secretary to the Government of the Federation. Senator Ngele could be considered as a grassroots politician and man of the people. {"    *&    appointment of many youths of Ebonyi State into federal jobs, his innate humanitarian nature manifested in so many legendary philanthropic gestures, including the establishment of an Old Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Home for helpless elderly people in the state.

Chief Godwin Ogbaga He was a Minister of Power and Steel under General Abacha. He used the position to endear himself to the people       projects to the area. He later went back into the state civil service where he became a permanent secretary in charge of the State Scholarship Board. He assisted many youths to secure scholarship into institutions within and outside the country. He was to go to the House of Representatives in 2007, but because he was

Senator Chris Nwankwo He is the current senator representing the zone. He is an elder statesman and philanthropist and also the elder brother to Mrs. Josephine Elechi, wife of Governor Elechi. The governor holds him in high esteem aside from being his in-law. Senator Nwankwo is one of the leading lights of the old Abakaliki zone in the old Anambra and Enugu states before the creation of Ebonyi State. He was secretary to the old Anambra State, and at a time contested the governorship of the old Enugu State. Presently at over 80 years, many consider that age is no longer on his side. But people around him especially those who want him to remain politically relevant are making $   "&  % ~ ! even touted to be warming up for the governorship race before it became clear that the slot has been zoned to Ebonyi South. So, should he decide to       ! indeed be interesting. But in all this, it is expected that the governor may weigh in if he decides to play the role of a god father. He may have to step in to try balance the equation not just within the zone but also in other zones in the state. There are strong indications that he will be contesting the Ebonyi Central senatorial seat currently occupied by Senator Igwe Nwagu, chairman Senate   \  {$% But he still has to play the big brother or fatherly role of trying to ensure that there is stability not only in the party, but also in the state so that the boat is not rocked. Ebonyi State has been a stronghold of the PDP in the South East geo-political zone since 1999. The party has been holding sway in the state. However, the opposition made appreciable impact in the 2011 general elections when the then All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) won a House of Representatives and two state Assembly seats. With the coming into being of the All Progressives Congress (APC), it does appear that the dominance of PDP in elections would be seriously challenged in 2015, especially if the opposition parties are able to get their acts together. That is why, for now, the party has been engrossed with ward, local government and state congresses. And perhaps after its national convention, it will be charged to unleash its political war arsenal on the state. Then, it is expected that the permutations will change.

Politics

Why LP is popular in South West â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Party chieftain Dr. Rotimi Olulana is a chieftain of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos State. He was its governorship candidate in 2011. In this interview with BIMBO OGUNNAIKE, the politician speaks on the 15 years of democracy and the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan among other issues. Excerpts:

A

re you still interested in contesting the governorship race in 2015? It is not yet time for me to make a pronouncement on that. I am still watching as events unfold because right now we have a confab going on. It is a conference that can come up with any decisions. The constitution of the country may be amended; there are lots of things to be changed. So, we still need to wait and see the outcome of the confab. Do you see the confab arriving at a logical end? I believe in the confab. I believe strongly that Nigerians need to sit down together and discuss issues that will make this country a better place for all of us. I know that our constitution is not the problem but the operators. Most of the "      !  to take some steps. But there are some areas that need to be looked into. For example, the presidential system of government we are operating is not good enough for this country. Why? It is too expensive. We need to look inward on what we can do. Do we need to reshape our presidential system of government or go back to the parliamentary system of government we practiced in the past? That is why the current confab is of importance. We also need to look at the issues of Boko Haram, tribalism and a host of other germane issues. If we are able to sit together in a confab, we will able to come out with ideas and agreed on some fundamental issues. If we are to operate on a federal system, it must be pure federal system. If we need to have a kind of devolution of power, do we need two houses in the National Assembly? Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we have only the Senate and forget about the House of Representatives? Or, canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we retain the House of Representatives and forget about the Senate? It is very expensive to run the two together. We also need to discuss how many ministers we should have. We also need to look at the issue of states and local government creation. Do we need new additions to the present ones? The ones that are existing, are they really viable? These are the fundamental issues that need to be looked into. That is why I believe in the confab. I believe we can come out with something good at the end of the day.

But some people are nursing the fear that at the end of the day the recommendations of the confab may not be implemented. Do you share their view? It is true that we have had many confabs in the past and nothing came out of them. In the present confab of President Jonathan, you can see that the man has some elements of truthfulness. People might look at him and say he is this and that; but I can assure you that the man has good programmes, good intellectuals and good advisers in his governments. But he is yet to address the issue of power failure in the country... (cuts in) President Jonathan is working seriously to address the problem of power failure in the country. I believe in him, I believe he can make some serious impact for the advancement of this country. What is your own assessment of the 15 years of democracy in Nigeria? If we are to look at the performances in all the states constituting Nigeria in the last 15 years, you will see that only few of them are performing. Even in those states that are performing, crooks have taken over, siphoning the statesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; money. Corruption has eaten deep into the fabric of this nation in the last 15 years. To me, the 15 years of democracy has not been too good. In my state, Lagos State, I can tell that yes, we have good roads; we have ministries that are really working but where are the local governments? What are the responsibilities of the local governments? Are they performing? The answer is no. If in a state like Lagos you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count more than 10 local governments that are working, that tells we are nowhere. Generally in Nigeria, how many state governments are performing? In my own view, I think we have a maximum of six states that are performing. We have Ondo State and the credit goes to the LP under the ableleadership of Governor Olusegun Mimiko. We have Lagos State under Governor Babatunde Fashola of the All Progressives Congress (APC); Akwa Ibom State under Governor Godswill Akpabio; Rivers State under the leadership of Governor Rotimi Amaechi and few others in a country where we have 36 states. If we have only six

Olulana out of 36, then that tells you that we are not performing at all. So, we have not made progress in the last 15 years of our democratic journey. The people at the helm of leadership are not the kind of people that are supposed to be ruling Nigeria. But how best do you think corruption can be tamed? No government in Nigeria has been able to curtail the problem of corruption, and I will tell you why. The late Sani Abacha and his cronies stole a lot of money but none of those who are still living has been brought to justice. Most of them are still walking freely in Nigeria. We need to ask ourselves some pertinent questions. Who was the Central Bank of Nigeria governor during the

people can see clearly that there is the urgent need to make a shift and the shift can be nowhere except in the LP. If you want a responsible government, you have to look for LP. It is as simple as abc. That is what is responsible for the advancement of LP in the South West

time? Who was the Minister of Finance during his time? Who !          period? These people need to be rounded up to explain what transpired. Abacha alone cannot siphon money to Swiss and other    (% `   must be some collaborators. Any serious government needs to take the issue of corruption seriously. To me, since the inception of this democracy, I have never seen    & "     headlong. I want a disciplined leader; a leader that will stand by his words; but unfortunately, I have never seen any such. That type of leader needs people like us to tell him the truth that he has not performed. Your party seems to be making some inroads in the South West. What is responsible for this? To me, I believe that when somebody is performing, people will see it. The only governor we have in the LP today is performing. Governor Mimiko has performed excellently well in Ondo State. The people of the state are living witnesses to the revolution going on in the state because the LP is a people-oriented and masses party. It is a party of workers. Discipline- minded people are in the LP. People who     '   of every citizens of this country are in our party. If you see people trooping into the LP in the region, it should not be a new thing. Nigerians are yet to understand what we call democracy and good governance. What Nigeri  '      Â&#x2021; years of democracy is the sharing       % & ! people can see that they are suffering and there is no work; no employment opportunities. So, people can see clearly that there is urgent need to make a shift and the shift can be nowhere except in the LP. If you want a responsible government, you have to look for the LP. That is what is responsible for the advancement of the LP in the South West.

Any governorship aspirant who says he will continue in the steps of   '      $ because the governor is saying where he goes no longer helps him because of paucity of funds. I will harness our natural wealth. We will increase salaries with abundant resources available in the state. It is only a strong economy that can bring about development.

Shieshe

Benue State governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Peter Shieshe, does not believe that the state should depend on federal allocation because it is blessed with abundant natural resources. He told GODWIN AKOR that he would make the state the hub of industries if elected governor next year. Excerpts: Does Benue have another problem? Another serious problem is youth unemployment. I got employed when I was 20 years but today, hundreds of thousands youths are unemployed. Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State has sent the young ones all over the world for training. There is need for modern training in education. We are neither     &       industry. Weak and dependent economy brings about the twin problems of mass poverty and unemployment. We have not started handling agriculture yet; it is not subsistence agriculture one is talking about. What we need is commercial agriculture. The cargo airport will help. Within two years, I will build a cement industry that will be bigger than what we have today. Governor ought to be elected through popular vote. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand by the type of governor you want, somebody can foist on you the person you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want. You may have to sell your rights because the person that has the thing that you swallowed will dictate what you do. The person who has the cash can impose a candidate and the people will keep crying.

In the Tiv bloc, MINDA came out early and sat alone to contest but the Tiv nation has not zoned the position to them. They sat alone and zoned it to themselves, premised on a faulty assumption. Jechira had an aborted mandate or tenure which must be corrected. Jechira should get it before MINDA. Thereafter, it will go to MINDA.

   !  "& Angela Edem maintained the typical student sleep schedule: slept at 2am, woke at 7am for her lecture at 8am, and went through the rest of the day.

He just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get what I was feeling.â&#x20AC;? Sleep deprivation often is overlooked as a reason for relationship problems. This is unfortunate; because it can do series of damage, and is a solvable problem. According to James Maas, PhD, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading sleep researcher and educator, 74 percent of North Americans are seriously sleep deprived, and most of them donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know it. Nearly all North Americans have some sleep deprivation. Psychologists have carried out series of studies, and come to the conclusion that "  &  *   &"% A bad night of sleep is associated with more frequent, more severe, and less  '  *   &"% It is believed that feeling tired is  (     * &  &  be surprised that having a tired partner (  &   (  "(  % Most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider the harmful impact sleep deprivation has on their relationships. Chronic tiredness can contribute to relationships falling apart. When we consistently get enough of the right kind of sleep (REM and Stage 4 sleep), we can have major improvements on how we get along with others. Overcoming sleep deprivation can even prevent relationship break-

ups and divorce. In a study conducted by the University of California, Berkeley, researchers found that lack of sleep could have  ' $ 5"   gratitude. This lack of thanks may ultimately put a strain on relationships. Researchers explained that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;poor "  ( &     we prioritise our own needs over our partnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.â&#x20AC;? Amie M. Gordon, Ph.D., studies the role of pro-social emotions (e.g. gratitude) and cognitions (e.g. perspective taking) in close relationships. She also conducts research on the impact of sleep on relationship quality. She blogs for Psychology Today in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Between You and Me,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and gives three reasons why couples should consider sleeping before they start disagreeing. 1. Sleepless people are more likely to bicker Research participants were made to complete a daily survey for two weeks. Each morning when they woke up, they recorded how well and for how long theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d slept the previous night. Each night before going to bed, they said whether, and how much, they had fought with their partner that day. The result was that the worse people slept the night before, the more they reported   !

Researchers also noticed that if your partner doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sleep well, you also experience fewer positive emotions and more negative emotions, and you are less able to take their perspective in a disagreement even if you slept well. So if a partner doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a good

Should married people take separate vacations? Vacations are times to relax and refresh oneself after many weeks of stressful work. Most working-class couples have limited annual holiday, and they want to spend that time ensuring they relax. However, ones idea of !/%.O+/3 Figures from a report in 2009 by American Express suggested that 65 percent of British couples fall out with their families before they even arrive at their destination. Hence, people believe that if couples holiday separately and return refreshed, then that should be good for their relationship, right?

Is she a gold-digger?

I

have been dating a girl for about four months now, and she is really nice and fun to be with. Some days ago, we were together and a younger friend said he knew this girl back in school and that she was a gold-digger, though not a bad girl per se. How do I spot a gold digger? Sunday, Lagos

Search for signs of generosity and gratitude towards you. After having gone on several dates, has this person ever O."`Â&#x20AC;`."`.(( (`$`Â&#x20AC;((0O" you in other ways â&#x20AC;&#x201C; cooking dinner when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been out working late? Clean your apartment? Run an errand for you when your scheduleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially tight? If these character traits are missing, is this really someone you want to get involved with? A person doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t develop gratitude and generosity overnight. If this person complains that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever do anything nice anymore, think of two or three inexpensive dates and one expensive one and see what your date says. A gold digger will reliably pick out the most expensive one, every time. Once a physical relationship has started, a gold digger will usually not engage in â&#x20AC;&#x153;physicalâ&#x20AC;? activities unless given incentive i.e. taken on a date, given a gift, etc. Like you have started doing, watch other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reactions when they hear youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been out with someone or spending time #(/3+(#}/" to subtly let you know through reactions and comments that the person is a gold digger. Most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be obliged to collect large sums of money from new dates. A gold digger doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be prompted twice to take a â&#x20AC;&#x153;loanâ&#x20AC;? from you. Think about what makes sense: Would you open up to someone you just met about `#(Â&#x20AC;.`$ a loan from a girl youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been out with once? Probably not, but a gold digger is looking for his or her next â&#x20AC;&#x153;sugar daddyâ&#x20AC;? at all times. Also, you can learn a lot from people close to them.

y hubby is 45 now and I found out that one of his former girlfriends was 15 when he was 25, and they had sex. I believe there might have been another girl who was underage when he was 27 or 28 as well. Now, my husband has a 17-year-old daughter in the higher institution who he absolutely adores. We just found out that she is dating a 32-yearoldman. He gets really upset at the thought of his teenage daughter being with an older man. Funmi, Abeokuta

realise the error in their ways until their children do it. $.((""(.))}##3 it is harder for kids these days, because there are more opportunities now than there were when you were younger. To your husband, his then girlfriend wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, or sister, or mother, or friend. She was just a young girl he wanted to get down with. But now that he is seeing what he shouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen, he knows what her dad wanted to do to him if he found out. To be honest, I think your husband feels guilty about his past. What he did is not exactly an acceptable thing to do in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s society. However, the past is past, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing anybody can do to change it now. You shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be too upset with him because that has been so long ago, and he is just trying to be a good parent because looking back at his experiences, it probably wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth it. You both should try and talk to the daughter and her boyfriend about the issue.

of the club, some punitive measures have been arrived at to put the coaching crew and players on their toes, noting that no one has been axed at the moment.

he National Conference has entered its most critical stage. The committees have completed their work, and the conference will now adopt or reject their recommendations in the plenary either by consensus or by the approval of at least 70% of delegates. It has therefore, become necessary that we remind ourselves why the Conference was called, to enable delegates keep the vision in focus as they discuss, accept, amend or reject some recommendations. From media reports so far, I am worried that we may have to call another Conference soon after this. There seems to be neither evolutionary nor revolutionary recommendations on the table. It is still the same old structures and systems that brought us where we are, or some mere cosmetic changes and compromises that I hear of. The truth is that if we miss the opportunity of using this Conference to correct certain   !!        ! !   our Federation, the next conference may be too expensive to bear. Obasanjoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Confab, remember, cost the nation one N1billion; this will cost N7 billion; the next may cost the country beyond our imagination. The critical issue is that our Federation is operating on an unstable foundation, and the structure is perverted. Since 1966, we have moved from one crisis to another; sizeable amount of resources have been wasted in     !      8 resources would have been better applied to the growth and development of the nation. How long shall we continue in this roller-coaster game which has consumed, and continues to consume the blood of innocent Nigerians? This bloodletting must be stopped before we face Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrath. We must create a nation that we are all happy to live in. And it is in our hands to do so now! I, therefore, take this opportunity to recommend my revised book - NIGERIA: Time for the evolution of a new nation to all delegates, and perhaps to the National Assembly and indeed all Nigerians who will eventually have to determine the future of our country. I am praying that we do not miss this opportunity to evolve a new nation that we all can be proud of. I will attempt to give a birdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye view of the key issues discussed in the 230-page book. Aborted dream Â&#x20AC;     ' +!  opinion amongst Nigerians that the country we have today is neither what our past leaders struggled to liberate from the colonial masters nor what we desire that it is in the 21st Century. The dream we had in 1960 of a great, peaceful and prosperous nation that will be the hope of the black man, projecting Africa and being a leader in the global economy, made an early start, but faltered fatally, and got aborted or nearly so. Some of the reasons for the abortion        '     chunk of the burden. Political reformation imperative Here, the point is made poignantly that the evolution of a new Nigeria must start with Political Reformation. This is the crux of the matter, and represents the critical assignment of the National Conference. It is the main issue which those that clamoured for a Sovereign National Conference have been harping at. We badly need to restructure the Federation so that we can have stability, and a balanced Federation. We posit that the federating units must be strengthened and the divisive issues of sharing responsibilities and resources among the tiers of governments renegotiated to create equity and fairness, while promoting competition  !    8Â&#x192;  !  !  that there are better ways of conducting politics, and that the rabid competition for political of!!

We must deliberately     !  {!  ! 8 Political leadership and governance Here, the focus is on the central problem causing our overall underdevelopment, which is political leadership and governance.

Nigeria:Time for evolution of new nation made that we must be painstaking in choosing our leaders, so that the best in character, discipline, and experience will emerge. Every political aspirant must be scrutinized before he becomes a candidate. Even as a candidate, we must ensure that criminals and novices do not assume political leadership in our country ever again. We recommend 24 core competences of political leadership to serve as a template for our aspiring political leaders. These include sound education, capacity to envision, high level of Intelligence Quotient, high level of emotional intelligence, ability to translate ideas into action, ability and willingness to make  ! !

    '  *   desire to achieve, a keen demonstration of accountability, humility of spirit, a measurable ability for hard work and courage, a demon             balance sheet statements and a true fear of God. We need to device constitutional provisions that will help cleanse our leadership and governance image. Political elections and selections A major fault line in our political practice is  {!'           conducting free and fair elections. Nigeria is notorious for this, and it remains a major destabilising factor in the nation. Many of our national crises have roots from disputed election results including the current security crisis. We have, therefore, made critical suggestions to reform the electoral process to make it water-tight, so that all the leakages become blocked. Nigeria must determine to have credible, fair and free elections henceforth. Executive, Legislature and Judiciary: Three sides of same coin and machinery of governance On this subject, we explore the responsibilities of the three arms of government and prescribe code of conduct and charter for relationship. We posit that the three arms require major !   ! {! !' !!  of running government so that money can be left to deliver critical services to the people. It is   Â&#x2019; ! '  + image of being corrupt with undue delays in concluding court processes; the legislature must change its image of being over paid with low productivity, while the executive must shed the toga of arbitrariness and corruption. The 2020 Economy: Job creation and poverty

alleviation Nigeria has been described as a rich country with poor citizens. We make far reaching suggestions on how to restructure the economy to achieve double digit growth in a manner that will result in trickle down, ensuring a fairly even spread of the national wealth. The focus must be on job creation and poverty alleviation. And to achieve this, we must create a most attractive investment climate, enthrone law and order, create well-thought-through stable policy environment, secure lives and property, eliminate corruption, maintain macro-economic stability, create irresistible incentives and encourage massive investments in infrastructure. Building competitive human capital and restoring the dignity of man: The social issues The case is made that the true measure of our economic growth must be the quality of life of Nigerians. We cannot be speaking of economic growth while the standard of living of the

Far reaching proposals are made on how to raise the quality of human capital through education, healthcare, population control and environmental management. Some thought is focused on what the country must do to restore the dignity of the average Nigerian including some social welfare provisioning. Policing and security: Creating safe heaven The issues of policing and security are in the front burner of critical national challenges. The centrality of having a safe and secure nation as primary governmental responsibility is underscored. A thorough review of the national security challenges are presented while a robust menu of actions that must be taken to re-invent      ! '     to turning our nation into a safe haven. It is doable! Creating followership that deserves the leader: Citizen/corporate responsibilities This is a fundamental issue that is often ignored when discussing ways out of our national challenges. We believe that we need to reform the followership that will produce the reformed leaders that we badly seek. To ask the leaders to reform while the followers remain unchanged will achieve very little. A holistic change of attitude by Nigerians through the inculcation of ennobling values is mandated, and the means well elucidated. Conclusion In 2005, we lost a golden opportunity to set our nation on the right path for sustainable and peaceful growth by abandoning the recommendations of the National Political Reform Conference as tenuous as many of them were. We could have, at least, averted the many months of militancy in the Niger Delta and the huge price we paid. Since then, Nigeria has undergone one of its biggest crises after the civil war. \]1   3 ! + another opportunity to re-invent the Nigerian nation. I urge the delegates, National Assembly and the entire people of Nigeria to take the bull by the horn, and evolve a new nation, which we all will be proud of, and which the International Community will respect. I have created this nation in my book, and urge our delegates to read it. }8 !7     +   opportunity on a platter coated by the blood of innocent Nigerians which has been needlessly and wantonly shed because of the contradictions, inequities and instability of our Federation as it stands today. May we not look back years after, and regret that we ought to have done a better job. God forbid!
