Rivers State Crisis: Appoint Youth Commissioners — High Chief Joe Umezulike writes Sim

Rivers State Crisis: Appoint Youth Commissioners — High Chief Joe Umezulike writes Sim

 Subject: Recommendation to Appoint Youth Commissioners


Dear Governor of Rivers state,


Sim

I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to you regarding the recent resignations of several commissioners from your cabinet. It is indeed concerning to see such a significant number of key officials stepping down from their positions.


Upon reflection, I believe this presents a unique opportunity for you to enact positive change within the governance structure of Rivers State. Rather than viewing these resignations solely as a setback, I urge you to seize this moment as a chance to empower the youth of your state.


As evidenced by the resignations, there may be a perception among some individuals that political connections or allegiance to former governors or leaders are prerequisites for success in government roles. However, I firmly believe that talent, dedication, and fresh perspectives are equally, if not more, valuable attributes in public service.


Therefore, I recommend that you consider appointing capable and driven young individuals to fill the vacant commissioner positions. By doing so, you can demonstrate your commitment to fostering a new generation of leaders and ensure that the voices and aspirations of our youth are represented at the highest levels of decision-making.


Moreover, appointing youth commissioners would not only inject new energy and innovation into your administration but also inspire confidence and hope among the younger population of Rivers State. It would send a powerful message that meritocracy and inclusivity are core principles of your governance system.


I stand ready to support and assist you in identifying suitable candidates who possess the requisite skills, integrity, and passion to serve your state with distinction. Together, we can work towards building a brighter future for Rivers State by harnessing the potential of the youth.


Thank you for considering my recommendation. I remain optimistic about the positive impact that your leadership can have on your beloved state.


Yours sincerely,


High Chief Joe Daniels Umezulike

RIVERS ASSEMBLY: NEW SPEAKER EMERGES, DECLARES ACTIONS OF AMAEWHULE-LED FACTION VOID

RIVERS ASSEMBLY: NEW SPEAKER EMERGES, DECLARES ACTIONS OF AMAEWHULE-LED FACTION VOID


The Rivers State House of Assembly has at its sitting held on Wednesday, May 8, 2024 elected Rt. Hon. Victor Oko-Jumbo representing Bonny State Constituency as the new speaker.


The House further declared all actions taken by the  members of the factional Assembly led by Hon. Martin Amaewhule as void and a nullity in the eyes of the law and further called on Gov. Siminalayi Fubara to stop dealing with the former lawmakers who lost their seat following their defection.


While addressing the house the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Oko-Jumbo said his emergence was in pursuant to the resignation of Rt. Hon. Edison Ogerenya Ehie and in line with section 92(1) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 as amended.


He thanked his colleagues for the confidence reposed in him assuring that he will continue to work with them to move the state forward.


The Speaker noted that after the House last sat on December 13, 2023 and adjourned sine dine, there has been an avalanche of legislative rascality perpetrated by the 25 former members of the 10th Rivers State House of Assembly, led by the former Speaker, Rt. Hon. Martin Chike Amaewhule. 


Rt. Hon. Oko-Jumbo emphasised that the former members were aware of the provisions of section 109(1)(g) of the CFRN 1999, and following their defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC)  on December 11, 2023,  Rt. Hon. Edison Ogerenye Ehie who then became the Speaker on December 13,  2023 wrote to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), declaring the seats of the 25 lawmakers vacant in line with section 109(1)(g) and (2) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999, stressing that there are numerous pending cases in the courts over the defection of the former lawmakers.


He therefore stated that, "All laws, plenary sessions and actions taken by the illegal House are hereby declared void and a nullity in the eyes of the law by virtue of the judgment of Lord Denning in the celebrated case of MacFoy v UAC (1961) 3 All ER 1169, which held that "you cannot put something on nothing and expect it to stand."


Oko-Jumbo quoted further, "If an act is void, then it is in law a nullity. It is not only bad, but incurably bad. There is no need for an order of court to set it aside. It is automatically null and void without more ado, though it is sometimes more convenient to have the court declare it to be so. And every proceeding which is founded on it is also bad and incurably bad. You cannot put something on nothing and expect it to stay there. It will collapse."


The Speaker directed the Executive arm, the Judiciary and general public to disregard every law purportedly enacted by the illegal Assembly as they all amount to nothing but an exercise in futility.


"Furthermore, this House would want to most respectfully urge and call on His Excellency, the Governor of Rivers State, Sir Siminilayi Fubara, to stop dealing with the 25 former lawmakers, in whatever guise." 


"Those members are merely floating and do not have any landing ground or anywhere to berth their ship since their defection to the All Progressive Congress on the 11th of December, 2023. This House is the legally and Constitutionally recognised House by virtue of the defection, and is ready to receive correspondences from and work with His Excellency."


He assured of the house unalloyed and unwavering support to work with Governor Siminalayi Fubara in moving Rivers State forward and in promoting the progress and welfare of the State.


Addressing newsmen after the sitting which held at 10:00am, the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Victor Oko-Jumbo called on all Rivers people to join and support the government of Sir Siminalayi Fubara as the house is ready to give its best for the service of the state


On his part the Chairman of the Business Committee of the House, Hon. Sokari Goodboy, assured of the house commitment to the advancement of the state and are ready to support the speaker. He urged Governor Siminalayi Fubara not to have anything to do with the former members of the house in order not to attract the wrath of the house.


Also in a twist, the Assembly Sergeant-at-arms, Mr. David Wariboko whom Martin Amaewhule-led factional Assembly allegedly suspended was seen performing his duties with the Assembly under Rt. Hon. Victor Oko-Jumbo.

YORUBA IN PORT HARCOURT AND RIVERS STATE POLITICS

YORUBA IN PORT HARCOURT AND RIVERS STATE POLITICS


I have effectively followed the political happenings and elections in Rivers State since 1999 till date. Throughout this period of about 24 years, never for once have I seen the “Yoruba interference” in the politics of Rivers State.


It’s no longer news that the Yoruba people have a high population in the State, a population comprising of different professionals contributing positively to the growth and economy of Port Harcourt and Rivers State.


But with their valued contributions to the economy of the State and high population in the area, the Yorubas never brag about their accomplishments, achievements and establishments in the City and never uses same to denigrate their host communities and boast that they will determine the political future of their landlords and choose who becomes their next lawmakers and Governor of the State. They don’t even print campaign posters and contest elections in the State, even when they are at liberty to.


I have never seen the Yorubas engage in tactless political activities in Rivers State or making reckless political statements during local elections in the State or anywhere outside South-West, Nigeria. Also, I have never seen them brag that they made a candidate win an election in Rivers State or anywhere outside SW. even when they obviously contributed.


During elections in Rivers State, the Yorubas who are registered to vote comport themselves, mind their business throughout the campaign period and go to their polling units to cast their votes for their preferred candidates and quietly leave their polling units after doing so. In fact, the only time you will see Yoruba people during campaigns here is when political parties or candidates have called the Yoruba community for a campaign meeting to seek for their votes and support.


This behaviour of one of the most industrious, respected and celebrated ethnic group in the world is possible not just because they are one of the most educated people in Nigeria, but also, because they have a culture of respect imbibed in all sons and daughters of Yoruba in and outside Yoruba land, the culture of respect called Omoluabi.


Throughout my years of political participation and observation in Rivers State, the attitude of the Yorubas in Port Harcourt is the direct opposite of that of some others who not only behave like lost and uncivilized entities without any form of education and culture, but are also brash, tactless, reckless, noisy, disrespectful and boastful. Who after selling fake oraimo cords in one kiosk at Rebisi, always brag about the imaginary powers they have as tenants to determine for their landlord, how and when he should impregnate his wife. A true definition of uninvited tombofly and meddlesome interloper.


As a man of independent thoughts who is also cultured (by virtue of being an Ikwerre man) and appreciates good things, I must commend the Yoruba people for maintaining high standards of respect for others and promoting the principles of Omoluabi. Nigeria would be a better place if we all promote our uniqueness and respect our differences.


Dear Yoruba people, please keep it up, you have my respect ✊

TINUBU'S PRESIDENCY: WIKE AND WHAT SOUTH EAST APC LEADERS SHOULDN'T WAIT TO BE TOLD

TINUBU'S PRESIDENCY: WIKE AND WHAT SOUTH EAST APC LEADERS SHOULDN'T WAIT TO BE TOLD


By Sam Onwuemeodo


I have chosen to begin with  Nyesom Wike, the Rivers State Governor. And for obvious reasons.  


The previous week, the President-elect,  Senator Bola Tinubu was in Portharcourt,   Rivers State. He was there on the invitation of  Wike. He was invited  to commission projects. And he did.


 ln  doing that,  he was quoted to have said that,  he owed Wike  nothing.  And some people  began to celebrate that. Some people  believed that. They took Tinubu's comment to the bank. They went home with it. And l hasten  to say this.


 lf  there's one Nigerian Tinubu owes a lot, that's Wike.  Nyesom Wike.  Aside keeping his Party, PDP, and it's candidate,  Atiku Abubakar on their toes all through,  he delivered Rivers State to Tinubu and his APC.  I am talking about the INEC declared  results for Rivers . INEC's own results.  


Wike,  a pdp governor,  ensured that  APC or Tinubu  was declared winner  in his State. ln Wike's Rivers, Tinubu got 231, 591 votes. His own party,  PDP,  got 88, 468 votes and the Labour Party,  175, 071 votes. lf there's  one man who has a lot of claims to make in Tinubu's presidency,  that man is Wike. There is nothing he wants in BAT's government that he would not  get. Don't believe me.  But mark my words.  He destroyed PDP for Tinubu to navigate. So, paying Wike's Rivers,  the money spent on federal projects in the State would be one of the easiest things Tinubu would do as President. 


Unlike Wike , those who should be worried about the direction  Tinubu's  presidency will be going are the leaders of the APC in the South East. Already,  Tinubu's body language isn't encouraging.  I am not writing that they should believe me , but letting them know the fate that awaits them in BAT's Presidency. Like l said,  they should not wait to be told that Tinubu and his Presidency won't  have anything tangible  in store for them.


For Tinubu,  his Presidency  and his close associates , all the leaders of APC in the South East are OBIDIENTS. This is the mindset of Tinubu and his own emerging  cabal. lt's written all over them. And there seems to be  nothing anybody can do to help the situation. 


The only prayer point left for APC leaders in the South East is that , the election of Tinubu should be annulled or be  nullified by the Tribunal. But  if the Tribunal confirms or authenticates his election,  then, there is every reason to worry by APC leaders in the South East. Some of them, going to the Defence House and taking photographs with him, won't change anything. 


Tinubu didn't hide his disdain for the  South East. He began early enough to show that.  He first settled for a fellow Muslim as Vice- Presidential candidate, believing that Heaven wouldn't fall. And he was right. Heaven didn't fall. And he  did it,  knowing that the South East could be adjudged  the " soul" of Christianity in Nigeria. l am painting a picture. But see the major issues.


 At a time,  the discussion or the  debate in the APC was that, the South should produce  the Presidential candidate of the Party  and by extension , Muhammadu Buhari's successor,  Ahmed Lawan came on board with a bang. And who were in the forefront of the Lawan's project?. Senator Orji Uzor Kalu and His Excellency, Governor Hope Uzodinma. And they were overtly  serious about it. They bought Lawan's nomination forms and displayed them for all and sundry to see, on the screens of  national televisions.  l do not know who drafted each other into the Lawan venture. Whether Kalu drafted the lmo Governor or vice versa. 


lf there was a major threat to Tinubu's aspiration for the Presidential ticket of the APC,  it was that Ahmed  Lawan's entry. That man's case.  And our own people were the pilots. The architects. On the TV screens, the  Yobe State Governor,  Mala Buni,  Lawan's own governor was behind. At the back of Kalu and governor Uzodinma. l am still painting a picture. They didn't support Tinubu. They didn't support Rochas Okorocha or Ogbonnaya Onu or Emeka Nwajiuba or David Umahi. But Lawan from the North. Continue reading my lips correctly. 


Then,  the Concensus issue. Lawan was announced the consensus Presidential  candidate of the party by the Abdullahi Adamu led NWC . lf that had worked out  as planned,  Tinubu's ambition would have been submerged or destroyed at that point. His group fought back. l want you to grab something here. Something "ominous". Something not palatable  at all. Something "imirimious". Do you understand?


Then,  the Presidential  primary proper. The South East delegates voted for Lawan, from all indications.  And not Tinubu. Not Okorocha. Not Nwajiuba. Not Onu or Umahi. They went for the Yobe man, Lawan. After Yobe, you get Borno State. l had been there. That was in 2004. l had gone   for the Turbanning of Emir of Damaturu,  Alhaji Shehu Hashimi 11 lbn Umar El-kanemi. The rest became history. 


Ahmed  Lawan for presidency project was the biggest threat  Tinubu's ambition had, before the INEC conducted election. Buhari's cabal also led Nwajiuba  to go to  court , asking that Tinubu should be disqualified and announce him APC candidate. Buhari's deceitful cabal. 


For the February 25, 2023 Presidential election, the leaders of APC in the South East were helpless. Nigerians,  including the South East people,  opted or settled for Peter Obi of the Labour Party. But Tinubu and his  already existing  cabal won't look at it from  that perspective.  They seem to have made up their minds. For them, APC leaders in the zone were all Obidients or  "lPOB".


 ln Anambra, for instance,  APC ( Tinubu), had 5, 111 votes. PDP (Atiku), 9,036 votes. Labour party ( Obi), 584, 621 votes.  ln Ebonyi, APC, 42, 402 votes.  PDP,  13, 503 votes. Labour party, 259, 738 votes. ln Enugu State,  APC, 4, 772 votes.  PDP,  15, 749 votes. Labour Party, 428,640 votes.  ln Abia, APC,  8, 914, PDP,  22, 676 and Labour Party,  327, 095. ln lmo , APC,  66, 406 votes,  PDP,  30, 234 votes and the Labour party,  360, 495 votes. Don't forget. These're Mahmood Yakubu's INEC  declared results. 


Looking  at these figures, one would be forced to agree or believe that the issue is not what anybody thinks should be Tinubu's right actions,  but what will be the case with regard to South East APC leaders in Tinubu's presidency. 


That is the problem with Orji Uzor Kalu and Osita lzunaso's aspirations for the position of  Senate president. Otherwise,  having denied the South East the position of President most patriotic Nigerians had believed should be their turn , and having also denied them  the office of Vice president, the most appropriate thing to do now is to concede the office of  Senate  president to them. But for the reasons l had earlier mentioned,  that has become a tall dream. They would never live to see that happen.


They have gone to South South. Akwa lbom State in Particular. And their choice is Godswill Akpabio. At the primary,  he withdrew for Tinubu. ln the election,  APC had 160, 620 votes.  More than what Tinubu got in the whole of South East. That's the politics behind their choice of Akpabio. They won't tell you this. 


For the South East and APC leaders in the zone in Particular, they should not expect much from Tinubu and his Presidency. No great expectations. Like I had intoned , the politics has begun.  And only those with foresight or " four-sights" would understand better . Would be able to read the handwriting on the wall and interpret it.  MENE,  MENE,  TEKEL,  URPHARSIN. 


There is already a gang up. While the lmo Governor was at "war" with Joe Ajaero of the Nigeria Labour Congress,  NLC, in lmo , the kano State Governor of APC extraction, Alhaji  Ganduje, was rolling out red carpets in kano for the same Ajaero. The same period. And he  gave him the Chieftaincy Title of Sarkin Yakin, meaning,  Workers' warrior. 



Even when Tinubu might  not remember some of these incidents,  those who have his ears would always remind  him of all these. And there is no  difference between him and Buhari in terms of being easy prey in the hands of wicked cabal. Even,  Tinubu's  own cabal  may be worst than Buhari's own cabal.  The signs are everywhere.  l hope you're reading  between the lines. There is " fire in the Soweto". 



This whole thing is also a wake-up call for Governor Uzodinma,  especially in his bid for second tenure . Yes, APC governor.  The  worst opposition to his second term  bid may not come from within,  but from  "without". Outside.  Don't say l told you. Do not quote me. Do not quote Sam. Onwuemeodo. Caveat emptor.  Disclaimer.  l am only guessing. lmagining things.  Which can't be located or situated.  . On your "marks". Ready....go!!!. The expected heat may be imported. External heat. Perhaps,  from the barbeach or zuma rock. Do you understand? 


The Lagos State Government had, on Wednesday, May 10, 2023,   arraigned Eze Ndigbo in Ajao Estate Lagos, Fredrick Nwajagu, on terrorism charges.  And he has been remanded in prison custody. The man was quoted to have said that, if the attacks on the lgbos and their properties in Lagos continue,  he might invite IPOB. That was a conditional statement. He didn't invite IPOB.  But he's  already in prison. And  those who attacked,  killed and maimed lgbos during the elections in Lagos  walked away free and still walking freely . l am still painting a picture. What to expect from BAT's Presidency. 


The Chief of Army Staff , Lt. Gen. Faruk Yahaya on Friday ,  May 5,  2023, had had reason or reasons to threaten to crack down on  potential threats to Tinubu's inauguration on May 29.


ln doing that,  Gen. Yahaya warned the  "lndigenous People of Biafra , IPOB,  Eastern Security Network, ESN  and other fringe groups not to test the will of the military ". He specifically mentioned IPOB and ESN and described similar groups in other parts of the country as " fringe groups". Are you following?. What to expect. 


Even when  l have never read where IPOB had threatened to frustrate or prevent the inauguration of Tinubu as President on May 29. The man singled out IPOB and ESN, and  left other related groups in other parts of the country. 


That's the nature of the on-going blackmail against the South East and the people of the area. There is nothing to show or believe that Tinubu's presidency would be different from that of " Bubu", with regard to the fate of the South East. 


With the prevailing circumstances and  for Tinubu's presidency,  APC leaders in the South East or the South East people in general,   are all Obidients. Or,  IPOB. Depending on which of the words they would prefer to use at any given time. That's their mindset. That's their belief. Nobody should wait to be told all these. 


Orji Uzor Kalu had thought that,  talking against Obi's Presidential bid  or the corporate aspiration of the South East people to produce the President of the Country this time, would make them to bring him in or take him into confidence or forget his role in the Lawan for President venture.  But he has seen that, that's not the case. They are also  holding him in contempt. He has seen that the sound of bitter kola in the mouth does not reflect the taste. At all. At all, at all.


The only consolation is that,  if the South East people survived Buhari's eight years of negligence and gross disregard,  they would also survive Tinubu and whatever he comes up with. Necessity has always  remained the mother of invention. The earlier this situation is understood,  the better. 


Nevertheless,  we shall continue to clap for Jesus. And there is nothing anybody can do about it.

The Lagos State Government had, on Wednesday, May 10, 2023,   arraigned Eze Ndigbo in Ajao Estate Lagos, Fredrick Nwajagu, on terrorism charges.  And he has been remanded in prison custody. The man was quoted to have said that, if the attacks on the lgbos and their properties in Lagos continue,  he might invite IPOB. That was a conditional statement. He didn't invite IPOB.  But he's  already in prison. And  those who attacked,  killed and maimed lgbos during the elections in Lagos  walked away free and still walking freely . l am still painting a picture. What to expect from BAT's Presidency. 


The Chief of Army Staff , Lt. Gen. Faruk Yahaya on Friday ,  May 5,  2023, had had reason or reasons to threaten to crack down on  potential threats to Tinubu's inauguration on May 29.


ln doing that,  Gen. Yahaya warned the  "lndigenous People of Biafra , IPOB,  Eastern Security Network, ESN  and other fringe groups not to test the will of the military ". He specifically mentioned IPOB and ESN and described similar groups in other parts of the country as " fringe groups". Are you following?. What to expect. 


Even when  l have never read where IPOB had threatened to frustrate or prevent the inauguration of Tinubu as President on May 29. The man singled out IPOB and ESN, and  left other related groups in other parts of the country. 


That's the nature of the on-going blackmail against the South East and the people of the area. There is nothing to show or believe that Tinubu's presidency would be different from that of " Bubu", with regard to the fate of the South East. 


With the prevailing circumstances and  for Tinubu's presidency,  APC leaders in the South East or the South East people in general,   are all Obidients. Or,  IPOB. Depending on which of the words they would prefer to use at any given time. That's their mindset. That's their belief. Nobody should wait to be told all these. 


Orji Uzor Kalu had thought that,  talking against Obi's Presidential bid  or the corporate aspiration of the South East people to produce the President of the Country this time, would make them to bring him in or take him into confidence or forget his role in the Lawan for President venture.  But he has seen that, that's not the case. They are also  holding him in contempt. He has seen that the sound of bitter kola in the mouth does not reflect the taste. At all. At all, at all.


The only consolation is that,  if the South East people survived Buhari's eight years of negligence and gross disregard,  they would also survive Tinubu and whatever he comes up with. Necessity has always  remained the mother of invention. The earlier this situation is understood,  the better. 


Nevertheless,  we shall continue to clap for Jesus. And there is nothing anybody can do about it.

PRESS RELEASE:


*DEMOCRACY IS UNDER THREAT IN EDO STATE- LP.  *


The attention of the Edo State Labour Party has been drawn to the series of  attacks on Labour Party candidates, party faithfuls and  the Obidient movement in the state. Our candidates campaign billboards, posters  and banners are been destroyed by people who claimed it is directives given them from above. 

For example, our candidate for Oredo Federal  Constituency, Engr. Esosa  Iyawe billboards along Airport road, Akenzuwa road,  Ekenwan road and environs duly paid for were pulled down by the Oredo Local Government Council and warned the billboard agent not to hang any Labour party content on them. The billboard agent who said his business is been threatened if he does otherwise only agreed to make a refund to our candidate. In Esan Central, our House of Assembly Candidate, Hon. Oses   Emmanuel Eromosele billboards he constructed by himself in strategic locations were all removed and taken away by the Head of  service of the Council. When he was contacted he said,  it was directive from above. Another giant size billboard of our presidential and other candidates sponsored by Edo Diaspora women for Peter Obi erected around Ibiwe, ring road, Oredo LGA was also pulled down by the council.

 In ward 7 Ugbekun, Ikpoba Okah LGA, Labour party office  was invaded by thugs suspected to be hired by PDP removed all Labour party items, including sign  post, party flags,  banners of our presidential candidate  and posters of Labour part candidates. They forcefully  hoisted PDP  flag and pest posters and banners of PDP candidates in the place.

 Our members who were chased out of the premises said, the hoodlums openly boasted that they are going to make sure they drive Labour  party  out of the state as directed. 

Most worrisome is the fact that we were earlier denied the use of the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium  for rally to host our presidential candidate  Mr Peter Obi and his running mate Datti Yusuf.

It is Worthy of note that these are happening after HE, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has some time ago openly declared during the inauguration of his factional state PDP presidential campaign council. "That those who call themselves obedient in the state will soon run out of steam" 

We are worried as a party if this abrasiveness and hostile nature towards our candidates and members is what they have planned by saying we will soon go of steam?


As a party we have

 observed that the unfolding events in the State is a direct attack on democracy to deny the people from making free choices. 

 Labour Party is a party widely accepted by the people as the only credible alternative platform to take them out of the present hardship inflicted on them by both the APC at the Federal and  PDP at state level. 

We are social democrats who believes that it is still possible to conduct the affairs of party politics on identifiable ideology of progressive issues based  campaign. We are therefore calling on all well meaning Nigerians, Edolites and the security agents to please call the PDP led government in the state to order not to  truncate democracy but a peaceful atmosphere to allow the people freely make their informed decisions to elect who leads them.

(16): Eragbe noted that though, Nigeria has been dubbed the poverty capital of the world as a result of maladministration and lack of effective leadership. The lack of enduring character and the very poor managerial capabilities and capacity of leaders in Nigeria have contributed to the myriad of the socioeconomic and political woes we have found in Nigeria today since 1960.


(17): On this premise, Eragbe said that the Nigeria Labour movement: NLC & TUC and their trade unions came together in very strong terms with eight (8) other political parties to form the Third (3rd) Force which adopted the Labour Party (LP) as the alternative political party to rescue Nigeria and Nigerians 2023 and beyond. 


(18): Eragbe therefore said that the Labour party will ensure that education should be free, fair and qualitative and also ensure that we do away with strike actions in our tertiary institutions while health care services and political systems would be stabilized with economic diversification and job creation for the teeming youths.


(19): The high point of the stakeholders meeting culminated in a five hundred million naira (N500,000,000) fund raising program that was unveiled by the Director General of the Comrade Eragbe Anslem 2023 Senatorial Campaign Organization, Professor Festus A. Uwakhemen.


(20): Professor Festus A. Uwakhemen requested 2,000 stakeholders to contribute N250,000 each to realize the five hundred million naira sum needed to prosecute the Edo-North Senatorial election 2023.


(21): The Director General in his acceptance speech earlier, highlighted the qualities that sets Eragbe apart as a visionary leader who possesses the requisite experience and political capital and capacity to deliver on the legislative exigencies that will impact Edo North Senatorial District positively 2023, while also citing age and depth of understanding of national issues as some of the rare qualities possed by the young senatorial candidate of Edo North senatorial district.


(22): Eragbe noted that Mr Peter Obi was billed to come to Edo State on 11th November, 2022 and urged the good people of the state and particularly Edo North Senatorial District to come out en-mass to welcome the incoming president 2023.


(23): The meeting witnessed participants from different walks of life including the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, Support Groups Leaders, Labour Party Youth Leaders and opinion moulders.

(14): On the state of the failed economy, Eragbe said that “We need to change the failed revenue sharing formula to production formula, and noting that the era of sharing the national cake is over”. There is no more cake to share, and necessitating the urgency with which we must begin to bake new cakes rather.


(15): Accordingly, Eragbe said that Nigeria is about the most endowed nation on the surface of the planet earth in terms of human resources and natural endowments saying that Nigerians should not have any business with poverty.


(16): Eragbe noted that though, Nigeria has been dubbed the poverty capital of the world as a result of maladministration and lack of effective leadership. The lack of enduring character and the very poor managerial capabilities and capacity of leaders in Nigeria have contributed to the myriad of the socioeconomic and political woes we have found in Nigeria today since 1960.


(17): On this premise, Eragbe said that the Nigeria Labour movement: NLC & TUC and their trade unions came together in very strong terms with eight (8) other political parties to form the Third (3rd) Force which adopted the Labour Party (LP) as the alternative political party to rescue Nigeria and Nigerians 2023 and beyond. 


(18): Eragbe therefore said that the Labour party will ensure that education should be free, fair and qualitative and also ensure that we do away with strike actions in our tertiary institutions while health care services and political systems would be stabilized with economic diversification and job creation for the teeming youths.


(19): The high point of the stakeholders meeting culminated in a five hundred million naira (N500,000,000) fund raising program that was unveiled by the Director General of the Comrade Eragbe Anslem 2023 Senatorial Campaign Organization, Professor Festus A. Uwakhemen.


(20): Professor Festus A. Uwakhemen requested 2,000 stakeholders to contribute N250,000 each to realize the five hundred million naira sum needed to prosecute the Edo-North Senatorial election 2023.


(21): The Director General in his acceptance speech earlier, highlighted the qualities that sets Eragbe apart as a visionary leader who possesses the requisite experience and political capital and capacity to deliver on the legislative exigencies that will impact Edo North Senatorial District positively 2023, while also citing age and depth of understanding of national issues as some of the rare qualities possed by the young senatorial candidate of Edo North senatorial district.


(22): Eragbe noted that Mr Peter Obi was billed to come to Edo State on 11th November, 2022 and urged the good people of the state and particularly Edo North Senatorial District to come out en-mass to welcome the incoming president 2023.


(23): The meeting witnessed participants from different walks of life including the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, Support Groups Leaders, Labour Party Youth Leaders and opinion moulders.


Thank you and God bless you

Circumstances of Dr Mailafia's Death: Press Statement by MBF

Circumstances of Dr Mailafia's Death: Press Statement by MBF

 MIDDLE BELT FORUM

Press Statement 














The death of the former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital Gwagwalada, Abuja,  this morning came to us as a great shock. As someone who relentlessly participated in the activities of the Middle Belt Forum (MBF), his untimely death has dealt  a deadly blow on ethnic nationalities of not only the Middle Belt but the country at large.


Arising from various enquiries from Nigerians over the circumstances of his death, the Forum wishes to state as follows: That Dr Mailafia arrived Abuja last Sunday September 12, 2021 from Akure and was received at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport by his wife.


On arrival at home, the wife noticed he was not in the best of health conditions and seemed to be suffering from malaria. After three days of treatment without signs of improvement, he went to the CBN Hospital on Friday September 17, 2021 where he was shabily treated. It took the intervention of a senior medic who immediately placed him on oxygen and admitted him.


Dr Mailafia's was later given the option of choosing three hospitals: Gwagwalada Hospital, National Hospital and EHA Clinics. The wife opted for the third choice. On arrival at the EHA Clinics, the wife was subjected to yet another moment of anxiety as it took a direct order from the top management of the hospital to accept him.


After few hours of treatment, the EHA Clinics told the wife that it was expedient to transfer the former CBN Deputy Governor to Gwagwalada as the clinic was not fully equipped to handle the case.


The wife opposed the decision and insisted that she was opposed to the idea of taking her husband to Gwagwalada. Mailafia's wife only succumbed when the consultant assured her that nothing bad will happen to her husband. 


Yesterday, Saturday September 18, 2021, Dr Obadiah was transfered to Gwagwalada. on arrival, the name of the doctor that was billed to attend to Dr Mailafia was not on duty. Even when an attempt was made by foreign health consultants to save the situation, the doctor on duty got angry and said he was not obligated to listen to any foreign consultants that had been brought into the matter with the sole purpose of ensuring nothing  goes wrong.


Wife of the former CBN Deputy Governor was asked to pay the sum of N600'000 as deposit even when it was a referral case, with accruing medical bill to be settled by the CBN. At a point, Dr Mailafia complained over his breathing problems and pleaded with the doctors to place him in a ventilator. The doctors flatly refused.

Even after the doctors declared Dr. Mailafia dead, foreign consultants who were brought into the matter through Dr Mailafia's son that is  living abroad, had directed a family member who is a medical professional, with the wife of the CBN Deputy Governor, to mount pressure on the chest of Dr.  Mailafia for  resuscitation and thereafter place him on a life support.


The doctors in Gwagwalada refused all entreaties by the family members of Dr Mailafia to follow the advice of the foreign consultants, insisting that they have already pronounced him dead. Even when the wife could feel the pulse of her husband, the doctor flatly declared there was nothing they could do since they had already pronounced him dead.


While the above narration sums up the circumstances under which Dr Mailafia died,  we still  await the result of the actual cause of his death. As a nationalist and patriot that he was, Dr. Mailafia  was completely dedicated to the emancipation of ethnic nationalities from the clutches of oppression. The economist was never afraid to speak truth to power just as he remained committed to the enthronement of justice and equity to all citizens across ethnic and religious  divides.


In the twilight of his life, this consummate technocrat and global scholar of repute beamed his searchlight on the raging insecurity ravaging our country. He expressed regrets over government's incapacity to rein in the activities of insurgents and criminal groups terrorising the nation.


As a former presidential candidate in the 2019 poll, Dr Mailafia sought to deploy politics to bring about the dream he had for his country. Even after he lost the election, he never let down the bar in demanding for a fair treatment for all Nigerians.


The Forum recalls his patriotic zeal in standing up for truth and justice. He was never a letdown in being at the forefront of  showing the way for national greatness as he was willing to lay down his life for Nigeria.


The Forum is inspired by his altruistic disposition and contributions to national development. We remain proud of his footprints on the political, economic and social sands of our nation. 


In this period of grief, we extend our sympathy to his immediate family members and pray to the Almighty God to grant each and everyone of them the fortitude to bear the pain of this irreparable loss.


The death of Dr Mailafia today represents a dark day for not only only the Middle Belt but also for all citizens  who yearn for a new dawn for justice in Nigeria.
