Senator Nurudeen Abatemi-Usman remains the best candidate for Kogi central - Com. Sabdat Baki

- No Comments

The secretary of Support Deen Again Movement (SDAM), Comrade Sabdat Baki has described the candidacy of the incumbent senator representing Kogi central senatorial district, Senator Nurudeen Abatemi-Usman on the platform of Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) as the best option for the people of kogi central senatorial district in the present circumstance.


Speaking to pressmen alongside the president of the group, Comrade Aliyu A. Adeiza, Sabdat said the group is working round the clock to ensure total victory for senator Nurudeen in the forthcoming general election.


Senator Nurudeen who is contesting the senatorial election with other candidate including formal Sen. Ohaire of APC, Comrade Kabir Onimisi Atta of LP, Dr M M Wokili of SDP and Hon. Ahmed Ogembe of PDP is however considered to be most prepared to drive the ship of the central. Com. Sabdat Baki described Senator Deen as a devoted public servant.


The president of group Com. Aliu A Adeiza urged the good people of ebiraland to support Senator Deen positively on the development of the senatorial district. If elected again he will consolidate on his achievement recorded in is first term.
However most people in the central senatorial district consider the senatorial election contest a three horse race between the PPA, PDP and APC.


The PDP which is presenting the former Okene local government chairman, Hon. Ahmed Ogembe, a WASSCE holder. Which he is considered as not an ideal candidate as Kogi central is a politically sophisticated district in the state. Voters in Kogi central are looking at the qualities of the aspirants and not the party in this regard. The electorates are looking away from Hon. Ogembe of the PDP and Ohiare of the APC.


Ex senator Ohaire who has served Kogi central senatorial district but has contributed nothing during his tenure in the Senate. He is considered as the most inactive senator Kogi central has ever produced. There was an uproar of political brouhaha in ebiraland all true his period in the senate.


Senator Deen on the other hand is viewed by many as a global brand who will attract development as he has done in is first tenure and burgeon the declining potentials to greater attainments.
At this juncture, the group call on all Ebira sons and daughters to vote senator Nurudeen on the basis of his merit and personal attainment on services and not be drawn into the controversy that are the hallmark of party politics.


He expressed his believe that if senator Nurudeen is re-elect again next month, Kogi central will commence it upward travel to becoming one of the most developed and respected district in the country.

BREAKING NEWS: Obasanjo Defects To APC?

- No Comments

Fresh report surfacing the internet claims that former President Olusegun Obasanjo has finally defected to the All Progressives Congress.


If this turns out to be true, it certainly is a shocker. Going by the purported statement released by the former President at his farm in Ota, he has given a few reasons why his defecting should not just be accepted by Nigerians but should also be applauded.


Find his statement below:


"I have reason to believe that most or should I say all of you are wondering why I have chosen to defect to the defunct APC and I must say that if I had been told that I would have to switch party some 5 years ago, I myself would have argued it.

I believe in transparency and integrity but unfortunately, PDP is an opposite of such attributes.
They dwell in deception and in the lowest form of debase if I may say.
I believe change is what Nigeria needs and regardless of whether GMB can deliver or not, it is still change in a way. Nigeria needs to be delivered from a useless government that has taken over since I left presidency.

If you have read my book, you will see that Jonathan is nothing different from my VP when I was president. Atiku was just a big time backbiter unknown to him that when you have people behind you, your back actually becomes visible to you.


I want to use this medium to say a very big thank you to the leaders of the APC for accepting me as I am and I am proud to say that come 2015, APC is taking over Nigeria for good of us all.
I am a civilian like you all now so I understand what it means to live in the suburbs as you are all aware that I stay nowhere else apart from my village here in Ota.

Finally, I would like to implore all Nigerians that come 2015 Elections, VOTE GOOD GOVERNMENT NOT GOOD LUCK"

Stable Elections in Nigeria Threatened by Boko Haram’s Latest Attacks

- Monday, 26 January 2015 No Comments

According to a post published by times.com, Boko Haram laid siege to military bases in Maiduguri, Borno state capital on Sunday, raising questions about the army's ability to combat the insurgency.


As campaign season ramps up ahead of Nigerian general elections on February 14th, President Goodluck Jonathan has sought to downplay an insurgency in the country's northeast that has been raging almost as long as he has been in power. The rise of Boko Haram, a Nigeria-based militant Islamist group best known for vicious attacks on military targets and its penchant for kidnapping women and girls and conscripting men and boys, has stymied Jonathan's government since the former vice-president ascended to the presidency in 2010.


The insurgency has killed an estimated 11,000, according to theCouncil on Foreign Relation's Nigeria Security Tracker. Unable to defeat it, the Jonathan campaign has chosen to all but ignore it as the president asks his people for an additional four-year term. But that strategy backfired on Saturday night, as militants swept into the strategic northern capital of Maiduguri just hours after Jonathan stumped for support from city residents.


The militants, who reportedly infiltrated the city of two million disguised as travelers on local buses, laid siege to key military installations and battled into Sunday. The Nigerian army eventually beat them back, but the fact that they were able to penetrate the city undetected raises questions about the military's ability to defeat the movement, and, as the country's Commander-in-Chief, Jonathan's commitment to the fight.


Even as the insurgents retreated in Maiduguri, others looted, killed and abducted residents in a string of attacks on unguarded villages about 200 kilometers away,according to local authorities. As with previous attacks,such as an assault on a military base and several nearby villagesthat started Jan. 3 and killed scores, the government response has been muted.
Amnesty International, which has been closely documenting Boko Haram's expansion,warned of a looming humanitarian crisis in a statement released Sunday, noting that the capital had already seen a massive influx of rural residents fleeing the violence over the past several months.

"These ongoing attacks by Boko Haram are significant and grim news. We believe hundreds of thousands of civilians are now at grave risk,"said Africa Director Netsanet Belay."People in and around Maiduguri need immediate protection. If the military doesn't succeed in stopping Boko Haram's advance they may be trapped with nowhere else to turn. The government's failure to protect residents of Maiduguri at this time could lead to a disastrous humanitarian crisis."


Boko Haram's increasing boldness comes at a delicate time for Nigeria, which is just three weeks away from an election that promises to be the closest in the country's short democratic history. Jonathan is up against former military dictator Muhammadu Buhari, who has made security the main issue in his campaign platform. Elections in Nigeria are invariably accompanied by violence—the 2011 elections saw some 800 killed in post-polling fighting when Buhari lost to Jonathan—and fears are rife that Boko Haram could take advantage of the instability to sow further discord, or advance while the security services are distracted.
The United States has expressed concerns that the elections could usher in a new wave of violence, particularly if allegations of rigging by either side are widespread. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was in Lagos on Sunday to reiterate the U.S.'s desire to see clean elections."This will be the largest democratic election on the continent,"Kerry said at a press conference following meetings with the two main candidates."Given the stakes, it's absolutely critical that these elections be conducted peacefully—that they are credible, transparent and accountable."But obstacles are rife: some 25 million registered voters have yet to receive their biometric voter identity cards. There is not yet a system in place for an estimated one million internally displaced to cast their votes. And the ongoing violence in the northeast could prevent voters in what is traditionally a Buhari stronghold from coming to the polls.


On Jan. 22, Jonathan's national security adviserSambo Dasuki suggested at a meetingof the Royal Institute of International Affairs at London's Chatham House that the elections be postponed, but such a delay risks prolonging the instability and prevents a unified response against Boko Haram. On the same day, government spokesmanMike Omeri announced that Nigeriawas considering bringing home some 3,000 soldiers deployed in international peacekeeping missions elsewhere in Africa to help secure the elections and combat the insurgency. But the military's inability to combat Boko Haram has less to do with numbers than a longstanding history of alleged corruption within the leadership ranks, a lack of adequate weaponry and logistical supplies, unpaid salaries and poor training, according toseveral military analysts and frustrated soldiers. Dasuki, in his Jan. 22 Chatham House comments, defended the military leadership and insteadblamed cowardice among the troopsfor Boko Haram's advance."We have people who use every excuse in this world not to fight. We've had a lot of people who we believe joined because they wanted a job, not because they wanted a career in the military. And it's most of them who are running away and telling stories,"he said.


While in Lagos,Kerry reiterated the U.S.'s continued backingfor Nigeria's fight against Boko Haram. But that support comes with caveats: the Nigerian government must ensure that the upcoming elections will be fair and transparent."Bottom line, we want to do more,"he said."But our ability to do more will depend to some degree on the full measure of credibility, accountability, transparency, and peacefulness of this election."But doing more won't help if Nigeria's current leadership, both miltary and civilian, don't want to do more to help themselves.

2015 Polls: Kogi Central Interactive Session For Peace

- Friday, 23 January 2015 No Comments

As the 2015 general elections draws closer, the need for violent free polls became necessary in Kogi Central Zone of Kogi State known for violence during elections. A one-day interactive session for stakeholders and party candidates on Constituency Reportage and Community Outreaches was organised by Kogi Central CSOs Network in Okene. agbo-paul augustine reports on issues discussed at the forum.


To erase the battered image of politicking in the central zone of Kogi state, a coalition of Civil Society organisations in the zone under the auspices of Kogi Central CSOs Network took the initiative to calm nerves among politicians ahead of the crucial February polls by holding an interactive session in the ancient city of Okene.
Okene, the headquarters of the Ebira nation is known for rich culture, tradition and religion spanning centuries but recent development in the political life of the people pseudo put a dent to the image of the zone based on the reality of how politics is played among the people.


The incidence of violence resulting to destruction of lives and property as seen among politicians and their supporters in the past constrained a meeting of party candidates and stakeholders to converge on Okene in the cold morning of January 17, 2015 for an Interactive session on Constituency Reportage and Community Outreaches.
As the cold morning gradually gives way to the warm weather of the day, the political gladiators from the zone and their teeming supporters filter into the venue at the hilltop side of the town, the atmosphere became charged with the expectations of a departure from the past.


Party candidates including current serving Senator of the Zone, Senator Nurudeen Abatemi and his counterparts in the House of Representatives, Tijani Damisa representing Okene/Ogori Mangogo Federal Constituency and Abdulrahaman Badamasuiy representing Adavi/Okehi Federal Constituency, Kogi State House of Assembly Speaker, Momoh Lawal and other serving members of the Kogi State Assembly as well as candidates vying for Senate, House of Representatives and House of Assembly seats from the Kogi Central Zone were all present to chant a way for a violent free polls in February.
Speaking at the occasion, Chairman, Kogi Central CSOs Network, Mohammed Attah said the interactive session was to reinvigorate the political sector for grassroots development of the zone.
He noted that Kogi Central has been known for violence during elections in the past and there is every need to shift to non-violent and issue based elections hence, the need to bring all party candidates and stakeholders to discuss issues of peace, security and development of the zone.


Chairman of the occasion and President, Ebira Peoples Association (EPA), Dr. Abdulrahman Adeiza said the interactive session is the first gathering of the key politician power blocks in the zone in the last eight years and it became necessary to probe all the candidates and representatives in the zone. He said the zone is blessed with both human and material resources but it has not translated into physical development of the people. "Finding solution to what is wrong with our land is that all politicians here today will be held by what they say", Adeiza noted.
The need for peace and development in the zone was hot on the lips of stakeholders who frowned at the way party candidates go about canvassing for support in the forthcoming elections. They believe that the last known violence in the zone was necessitated by hate messages executed by thugs who are always handy as a result of high unemployment among youths in the area.


On the need for a peaceful election in Kogi Central, Guest Speaker at the session and Director General of Peoples Democratic Institute, Abuja, Dr. Lanre Adebayo said Kogi Central has never been short of leaders but has not translated to good development of the zone.
He said leaders have dual responsibility, the national and local hence, politicians must connect with people. "Kogi Central is so blessed; the people should use the wealth to improve the people of the land. Look for people who are selfless, hardworking, confident and who understands what it takes to lead", he said.


Dr. Adebayo noted that democracy cannot be effective without the people directly involved in the process as governance is a continuous engagement with the people. He urged the people of Kogi Central Zone to constantly engage themselves with their representatives to fashion out area of attention.
"Budgeting is all about the people so the people must be involved in the process", Dr. Adebayo said.


He further admonished politicians to eschew the use hate messages as they try to woe voters ahead of the general elections in the state. He said hate messages has been the cause of violence in Nigeria while urging the candidates to learn the language of vote canvassing not violence.
Dr. Adebayo concluded by saying constituency reportage is very important in democracy because it foster accountability while urging the organisers to maintain it as it will help the politicians to cut cost in connecting with the electorates in the future.


The Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, Alhaji Ado Ibrahim, in a message delivered by the Asema of Ezuka Clan, Adavi, Alhaji Momoh Sani Isah, thanked the organisers saying the programme was apt at this time of campaigning in the country. The Ohinoyi also urge all politicians to respect their people and frowned at the attitude of candidates seeking elections not consulting with traditional rulers in the area.
Also speaking at the occasion, Senator Nurudeen Abatemi who represents the zone at the Senate said he is committed to a non-violent campaign and urge organizers to maintain the town hall meeting in the zone.


Other elected representatives from the zone including the Speaker of Kogi State House of Assembly made presentations to the people on their scorecard since coming into office in 2011. Candidates vying for election in the February elections took turn to present their development plans to the people.


One major highlight of the session was an accord entered into by all the party candidates that they will conduct a violent free campaign ahead of the elections and afterward. The Okene Accord is a litmus test on all the party candidates in next month's general election in Kogi Central Zone of Kogi State.

"It is with this backdrop that The Future
Project is proud to be part of the conversation to drive the issue of sustainable development beyond 2015."

poverty, ignorance, climate change and injustice. They presented to Dr. Okonjo-Iweala with their requests for the NIgeria they want to see in 15 years.

Kogi West 2015: Dino Melaye Donates Water Pumps

- Thursday, 22 January 2015 No Comments

Kogi west Senatorial Candidate under the All Progressive Congress, APC Otunba Dino Melaye has said his people has been grossly misrepresented in the National Assembly in the last eight years.


Dino speaking while donating water pumping machines to the people of Karaworo area of ward C in Lokoja local government on Wednesday, promised to adequate and quality representation if elected into the red chamber in the coming election.


He said his decision to provide the water pump came after several plea to the PDP led kogi state government by the community for urgent intervention to their water situation fell on deaf ears .
The community commended the APC candidate for coming to their rescue after several months of severe hardship due to water sacristy in the area.
A community leader in the area Alh Yeriman Salihu Abbass described Melaye's gesture has proven that he will run people oriented programmes if elected into the senate.


Describing Dino as God sent, Abbass said the people of Karaworo area don't need to travel long distance to get drinkable water for domestic use.
"We have written to government about the water situation in Karaworo but nothing was done, we have to set out early in search of water because the pump here has spoil, but with this gesture from our candidate I can say our days of looking for water has come to an end."


Speaking earlier, an APC chieftain Mallam Abdulmalik Suleiman said the people had been poorly represented by in the last eight years at the National Assembly, saying an APC senator will perform better.
Abdulmalik urged the people to vote massively for APC at all levels, describing Dino as a man always concern for the welfare of ordinary people.


" We have Senator Smart Adeyemi that has twice betrayed the trust of Kogi West and it's ludicrous for Senator Adeyemi to be seeking for our votes after betraying our trust in the previous mandates given to him, it's clear he has failed the people of Kogi West and we will reject him at the poll.


ABsource was unable to reach Adeyemi for his reaction to this allegation despite the attempt to get his reaction by phone.
Abdulmalik however said the PDP has failed in the state, imploring the people to vote massively for APC in kogi state.
