ECA, Igbo youths commend Ndigbo over IPOB’s sit-at-home

By Emeka Mamah

ENUGU—EASTERN Consultative Assembly, ECA, and Igbo Youth Movement, IYM, have commended the Igbo for honouring the sit-at- home directive by the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, as mark of respect for Ndigbo who died during the Biafran war among other agitations, Wednesday.

Onitsha road deserted following IPOB’s Sit-at-home directive

This was contained in a statement   jointly signed by the Deputy Leader, ECA, Chief Maria Okwor  and Founder of IYM, and Deputy Secretary of Igbo Leaders of Thought. ILT, Evangelist Elliot Ugochukwu- Uko, in Enugu, yesterday.

The statement entitled, ‘Another successful quasi referendum,’  read:  “Again, our people have spoken with one voice in completely paralysing our region by staying at home yesterday in demonstration to the world, where we stand. Despite intimidations, harassment and threats from certain quarters, our people resolutely stayed indoors yesterday.

“We commend our people, for standing on the truth. This is particularly interesting  inspite of the spirited effort by government apparatchik to pervert the truth through inducement and blackmail. We congratulate the people of Eastern Nigeria. Government owned media reports hundred percent compliance in Aba, Nnewi, Onitsha, etc and over 70% compliance in other areas, the people have spoken.

“One year ago, after another successful sit-at- home, some people issued a quit notice and mounted pressure which led to unprovoked attack at Afaraukwu, in active connivance with collaborators, to kill innocent  souls whose only crime is that they have lost faith in Nigeria as currently constituted and therefore seek freedom from relentless oppression by a ruthless oppressor who proudly values cattle over human life.

“Again, yesterday, our people demonstrated in no uncertain terms that we are completely tired of unitary Nigeria. If a referendum were to be conducted today, it is clear that the old Eastern region would vote 95% out of this hellish country.

“Yesterday’s successful  sit-at-home is a quasi referendum on where the people’s soul and spirit lie. The result is too clear for even the blind to see.

“Again, this development confirms that the pseudo leaders of our region who have paraded themselves as leaders for years have finally lost it. They have just become leaders without followers. This is also an affirmation that no amount of  ‘Operation Cobra Jump’ or ‘Operation Viper Fly’  can subvert the will of the people.

“We commend the leadership of the most oppressed and most persecuted mass movement in the world, for their patience, tolerance, endurance and ability to lead, direct and guide the masses of Eastern Nigeria with humility and determination, in spite of the provocation of a clearly clueless oppressor.

“An oppressor who has exhausted every brutal strategy, including slaughtering thousands of unarmed agitators in cold blood, just to sustain an unworkable unitary structure, by fire, by force.”

Tension mounts at Lagos International Trade Fair

By Emma Nnadozie, Crime Editor

THE tension within Balogun Business Association,  operator of the multi-billion naira International Centre for Commerce, ICC, at the Lagos International Trade Fair Complex, Lagos State, has continued to mount as some members and stakeholders have vowed to challenge the present executives of the centre, which they said was unconstitutional installed.

To this end, a Lagos based law firm, Equity Chambers, through its Principal Legal Counsel, Mr. Kenneth Ugwu, has issued a letter to both the Executive Management of the Association as well as the association’s Board of Trustees on the issue of management of the financial and physical assets of the association.

He also claims that executives of the association was elected few months ago with an amended constitution not approved or registered by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) in the manner stipulated in the Companies and Allied Matters Act.

Equally gravely worrisome are suggestions in the lawyer’s letter that the tenures of office of the trustees of the association expired since 1997, but the trustees have continued in office contrary to the provisions of the authentic constitution of the Association which put their tenures in office at five years from the date of the registration of the association in 1992. The law firm is not only pointing at very imminent litigation in court, but also suggesting the likelihood that it would proceed with a petition to the Registrar-General of the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC, to appoint an appropriate officer of the commission to conduct a forensic investigation into the affairs of the association while at the same time referring matters that suggests elements of criminality to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Three key formal officers of the association, Bede Onwuasoanya, a former General Secretary, Godwin Ummennabuike, a former two-term Financial Secretary Chief Paschal Ude, a former 1st Vice President recently raised serious concerns over the use of two separate and different constitutions in running the association, use of illegal and invalid piece of paper as the association’s constitution, re-appointment of a dead member of the BOT as a trustee of the association in 2001 etc.  Recall that there were reports of alleged mismanagement of funds and physical assets of the association as well as alleged unconstitutional and illegal governance of the association and mismanagement of its International Centre for Commerce, ICC.

The President of the association, Chief Anthony Obih, however, dismissed these allegations as baseless, claiming that they were the work of opponents aggrieved at his emergence as the elected President who have refused to be gallant losers.

Meanwhile, the law firm, has given the Executives and the Board of Trustees up to Monday, 4th June, 2018 to take specified actions, failing which, according to the firm, it would commence the series of actions it indicated in its letter to the President of the association.

By Henry Umoru

THE Senate, yesterday, rejected one of the five non-executive directors nominated for the board of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) by President Muhammadu Buhari in April 2017, while confirming the other four. The move followed the consideration of the report of the Senate Committee on Banking, Insurance and Other Financial Institutions, chaired by Senator Rafiu Ibrahim.

Senate Chamber

Presenting the committee report, Ibrahim explained that Abubakar was not recommended for confirmation having failed the committee’s integrity test. “One of the nominees, Dr. Abdu Abubakar, failed the integrity test designed by the committee to assess, his response to questions lacked transparency and not worthy to appointed into a regulatory agency by the CBN,” he stated.

Those cleared after considering the report were Professor Ummu Ahmed Jalingo representing North-East; Professor Justina Odinakachukwu Nnabuko, South-East; Professor Mike Obadan, South-South and Adeola Adetunji, South-West. In his remarks, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, directed the committee to “look into Abubakar’s record, do more legislative work on it and report back.”Recall President Buhari had in April 2017 forwarded the names of the nominees for the board of the CBN to the Senate for confirmation in accordance with section 6 (1) (d), and 10 (1) of the CBN Act, 2007.

Anglican Church decries alarming rate of unemployment

THE Diocese of Lagos Mainland, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), has decried the alarming rate of unemployment urging government at all levels to create jobs for the people.

This was contained in a communiqué issued at the end of the 3rd Session of the 4th Synod of the Diocese of Lagos Mainland held at the Cathedral Church of St. Jude, Ebute Meta and All Saints’ Church, Yaba.

Speaking on the theme: ‘All things come from you and of your own do we give’, the presiding Diocesan Bishop, Rt. Rev. Akinpelu Johnson said there is need to reduce the unemployment rate in the country.

The communiqué reads: “Worried by the unabated destruction of lives and property as a result of criminal activities in the country such as the Boko Haram insurgency, increasing herdsmen attacks, assaults on churches, and abductions of students, Synod calls for a more pragmatic approach from the government to curb insecurity and prevent Nigeria from becoming a failed state.

“Synod further condemns the continued abduction of Leah Shuaibu, the 15-year old Christian girl from Dapchi, who is criminally held hostage for failing to convert to Islam and calls on the Federal Government to take more effective steps to free her.

“Whilst commending the anti corruption stance of the Muhammadu Buhari administration, Synod calls for a new impetus in fighting corruption that conveys an unwavering commitment by government to lead by example, recognises no sacred cows, and enforces the law on all with even-handedness.”

Good people

By Donu Kogbara

THE All Progressive Congress, APC, recently announced the formation of a 77-member team, to secure victory for Dr. Kayode Fayemi, its gubernatorial candidate in Ekiti, currently a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, state.

The Ekiti election will take place on July 14 and the 77-member team, described as a “National Campaign Council,” is headed by Abubakar Atiku Baguda, the Governor of Kebbi, and includes other serving APC governors and sundry bigwigs – ministers, legislators, aparatchiks and so on.

According to APC Deputy National Chairman, North, Senator Lawali Shuaibu, who inaugurated the council on behalf of the national chairman: “The election in Ekiti is very important for the APC…[only] slightly below the importance of the presidential election…We are not going to relent in our effort to win.”

Frankly, I am completely underwhelmed by this National Campaign Council, which is clearly meant to impress voters and intimidate the APC’s enemies!

Many Nigerian politicians, whether they be APC, PDP or whatever, are downright wicked and/or corrupt and/or sub-standard intellectually and/or lamentably unpolished.

But quite a few are decent and/or not crude and/or super-smart and/or highly effective; and I know for a fact that some of the APC’s Campaign Council members are exemplary individuals.

However, loudly and grandiosely informing the world that you are deploying no less than 77 VIPs to tackle an electoral challenge in a small corner of the Federation smacks of fear and weakness! The APC wants us to see this as a powerful show of strength, but some of us are gaining the opposite impression.

It has to be said that the incumbent Governor of Ekiti, Ayo Fayose, who will mastermind the PDP’s election campaign on behalf of Prof. Kolapo Olusola, the deputy he hopes will succeed him, is not someone who can be easily beaten.

Seasoned populist

Love him or hate him, Fayose is a take-no-prisoners demagogue, a seasoned populist, a stomach infrastructure specialist and a down-to-earth orator who knows how to appeal to the masses (albeit to their basest instincts!)

Long story short, Fayose is a feisty force to be reckoned with and one of the few PDP politicians who routinely grabs newspaper headlines because he is genuinely newsworthy.

So I can understand why the APC is taking him very seriously indeed and doesn’t want to take any chances around July 14.

But I personally think that the 77-person juggernaut thing is overdoing it and may even put some voters off!

Anyway, at the heart of all this razzmatazz that isn’t my cup of tea is Kayode Fayemi, an academically gifted man of ideas and man of principle who cares passionately about his fellow Ekiti indigenes. And, at his side always, is his wonderful wife, Bisi – a widely respected female empowerment advocate.

I have known the Fayemis since we were all youngsters in the UK; and I though I cannot confidently vouch for every childhood friend who went into politics because some have agendas with which I cannot entirely identify, I can confidently vouch for these two on every single level that matters.

The Fayemis are clever. The Fayemis are cultured. The Fayemis are humble. The Fayemis are not flashy or greedy or dishonest. The Fayemis are well brought-up and morally sound. The Fayemis are extremely kind-hearted. I’ve met foreigners who normally adopt a highly sceptical attitude towards Naija dignitaries because they (rightly!) feel that most of what comes out of Naija dignitaries’ mouths cannot be believed; but these sceptical foreigners hold Dr and Mrs Fayemi in high esteem because they regard them as sincere.

The Fayemis are, quite simply, Good People who have a Vision and a Mission.

They have occupied Government House in Ado Ekiti before.

And when they were there, they performed as well as anyone can perform within the context of an African setting that is riddled with socio-economic complexities and problems.

Dr. Kayode Fayemi is the preferred candidate of most of the discerning Ekitians I have consulted in the past few weeks; and he should, in my opinion, be given a chance to return to the hot seat in Ado Ekiti and resume his work.

 

The bigger picture

I CANNOT tell you how many Vanguard readers have contacted me to express concerns about the PDP’s lacklustre approach towards the upcoming election.

Many of the above readers would like to vote PDP in 2019, but are upset about the lack of any definite PDP presidential candidate and upset about what they see as suicidal slowness on the part of the PDP leadership.

I urge – and not for the first time! – the PDP leadership to get its act together and pick a presidential candidate and start giving the APC a run for its money! Buhari and his cohorts have not done as well as many who supported them in 2015 expected. And I belong to this category of disappointed ex-fans of Buhari.

I don’t hate Buhari but I am not pro-him any more…or pro-APC or pro-PDP (I still think that the PDP was doing a lousy job in 2015 and deserved to lose).

Anyway, nowadays, I’m a floating voter who supports anyone from any party who appears to be credible and decent. And I keep reminding my PDP pals that the Buhari administration is so out of step with so many Nigerians that the upcoming election is the PDP’s to lose. A few words are enough for the wise!
