Mr. LEGITIMATE again….. (To whom it may concern! An Open Letter to The Governor I am directed to consequently transcribe to cleave to your indulgence that; the flag of impeachment is waving heavily around the nation and we would not want to speculate you as the PDP governor to be denunciated. Also the incessant financial embezzlements plus political scrimmage at the “Glass House” has initiated a fire outbreak, which claimed the needed documentaries to probe the Hon. Aminu Maigeri leaded board of governors. As a precaution, we would not want to envisage a similar saga at Benue State, government house or even the Secretariat. Again, despite your alarming post professionalism as a Pigler; we have at heart your interest of becoming the prestigious Senator of the people of “zone A”, in order to enshrine “Our zone A, Our feature”. The entire citizenry of Benue State are not averse to your unreserved apologies but for the fact that we may reconsider it indignant, inconsequential, premature, and imp ...

RE:WHO IS FOOLING WHO "Dandalin YAN Arewa Solomon Dalung wrote: WHO IS FOOLING WHO? One Clement Onovo Okeke sent me this message which I feel it is within the mandate of this foundation.

After going through this nostalgic advise, I took the pains to reply him like this: The greatest enemies of the Northern minorities are the so called Southern Christians who used religion to manipulate them because of their vast land holding interest in the North. You claimed to be concerned for northern Christians but in truth you are exploiting us for selfish political and economic advantages.

The people of Benue State woke up, July 31, 2014 to realize that the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Trade Union Congress (TUC) had declared an indefinite strike. The strike action is in protest over the unilateral, illegal and criminal deduction of salaries of workers in Benue State on the instruction of the Executive Governor, Gabriel Suswam in spite of position of the organized labour to resist such an attempt by government. In addition, the organized labour is demanding for the payment of minimum wage to pensioners as well as the implementation of 15 per cent and 2.5 per cent increment to pensioners. Primary School teachers in the state are yet to enjoy the full implementation of the minimum wage and the TSS.

2015: General Onoja sacked for endorsing Jonathan for second term Barely a week after the apex socio-political group in the North, Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) publicly reprimanded one of its leaders and former military administrator of Plateau and Katsina states, General Lawrence Onoja, for visiting the Presidential Villa in Abuja along others to endorse President Goodluck Jonathan for the 2015 election, the forum has again come *** the Benue State born retired military officer. The ACF has removed Onoja from all leadership positions and in his place appointed another retired military officer, General A. B. Mamman. One of such committees chaired by the ex-military administrator before his sack is the ACF’s harmonisation sub-committee on North Central, which was set up to unify all major groups in the North, especially the forum and the Northern Elders Forum (NEF). This is even as facts have emerged on how frontline Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Clark, allegedly tricked some of the leaders who attended ...

PRESS RELEASE: Fellow comrades and good people of Benue State, it has become expedient to notify you that the state government has declared war on the public civil servants of the state in an attempt to pauperize the entire workforce and make them grapple for a living. Congress remains resolute on its earlier position and reiterates that the Benue workers SAY NO to salary deduction. Congress wishes to notify the workers and the good people of Benue State that the devils knife has cut through the flesh and meager salaries of the poor public civil servants in the state to make them bleed financially to death. This action by government is irresponsible, callous, mischievous, criminal, subjugating, embarrassing and above all the biggest fraud ever recorded in administrative history in Benue and beyond. Congress wishes to state equivocally that it shall vehemently resist this ungodly, illegal and tyranic policy of the state goverment with the last drop of their blood. Meanwhile public civil servants are reques ...

We should not be fooled! Changes in operation/functions happen every day in all types of unionism for a multitude of reasons: death, disability, voluntary and involuntary, lawsuits, financial and economic setbacks, educational improvement in the area, youth empowerment, politics etc and above all campaign for the welfare of all union members [students].

However, nurses and matrons, according to checks carried out by our correspondents, have taken over care in the hospitals especially those ones in critical condition. At the National Hospital Abuja, the doctors too abdicated their duty posts, even though some of them were seen loitering in empty hospital corridors, under “essential duty” designation. A pregnant woman, Priscillia Edoh, who went there for ante natal care, was not attended to despite her four-hour wait. “We were told to wait. Up until now, they have not come,” the pregnant woman said, as she stayed alone in a waiting room that had emptied since morn ...

Wake the Sleeping Midfield Giant, the Cows are Attacking…! I am not crazy about sports, especially the kind of craze that has consumed this generation. But this generation is not really crazy about sports. This generation is crazy about football; soccer. And strangely, one is almost considered eccentric when they do not show enthusiasm about the game of football, especially when great tournaments like the World Cup are being played, and particularly if one’s country is on the pitch. Its called patriotism; solidarity! So in that sense, I can be called eccentric and unpatriotic. And I agree totally. But then there is a game that I am and have been crazy about. I was so crazy about it right from my secondary school days my principal unilaterally made me the school captain. Of course, I was not particularly good at it, but I was passionate alright. The game is volleyball. I still am crazy and passionate about it, though I don’t get to play it often again, and I still can’t boast about great skills. My ...
Kudos To Governor Gabriel Suswam For Meeting Primary School Teachers Demands After 8 Months!!! Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue State must be commended for finally meeting the demands of Primary School teachers in his state after 8 months! Eight wasted months of the lives of Benue State indigent pupils who cannot afford to attend private schools! I wonder why the teachers didn't approach the court,or the National Assembly,since Primary School education is compulsory in Nigeria by virtue of section 15 of the Child's Right Act. Governor Gabriel Suswam should receive the highest honour in ignominy in Nigeria,he deserves it!

PEOPLE’S COURT Alleged certificate forgery: My traducers want to reduce me in public’s eyes –Suswam Governor of Benue State, Dr Gabriel Suswam, is not happy. He is displeased with the renewed claims by some people in his state that he forged his academic credentials. He is pointing fingers at his political opponents who want to stop his senatorial ambition in 2015. But Suswam has declared that only God can stop him from going to the Senate even as he vowed to stop at nothing in ensuring that his name is cleared of the certificate forgery allegation. Recently a magazine published for the second time alleged forgery of academic certificates by you. Why is this still lingering? The people who are behind this shameful and criminal act know why they are doing it. They only want to assassinate my character. All my certificates are verifiable. All the institutions gave me admission based on my results. Along the line, I lost my results to robbers. When I applied for admission, the university needed to see ...

UniAbuja VC: Adelabu Bows Out Today 30th June, 2014 The tenure of the vice chancellor of the University of Abuja, Professor James Sunday Adelabu ends today after a five-year sojourn in the almost 30-year-old institution. In his valedictory speech to newsmen in Abuja after a tour of his projects within the permanent site of the institution, Adelabu clarified issues about the N3billion contract allegedly awarded in the twilight of his administration. He said, “How can I award a contract like that given the fact that the NEEDS assessment is involved for which tendering and opening of bid was done? It was not even by the university but by a consortium. “The award of the contract had taken a normal process for which Council was to meet. They didn’t want me to award contracts as VC”. Meanwhile, after a careful selection from the 123 candidates who applied for the seat of the vice chancellor, 10 were shortlisted with Professors Umaru Garba Danbatta, Raheem Adebayo Lawal and Michael Umale Adikwu topping t ...

Primary School Teachers in Benue State have been on strike for the past 9 months and still counting
All my frnds living in benue state u are invited to my church conference at makurdi christian center with my DADDY REV.DR SAM .T. ALAHA.
Before you guys tag me as someone who likes carrying negative news. Last week Wednesday, I wrote a piece on Governor Suswam and primary teachers in Benue State. The teachers have been on strike since July last year. On Thursday, somebody informed me that the strike has been called off. I didn't want to post anything because there was no official announcement or confirmation. Yesterday another person drew my attention to the fact that the strike by Primary School teachers which lasted almost a year has been finally called off! Thank God it's over. I pray that all issues which led to the strike have been conclusively resolved.
Massacre In Gboko: Soldiers At Dangote’s Cement Factory Kill 7; Company, Govt. Abandon Victims’ Families-PREMIUM TIMES Posted: Jun, 30 2014, 5:06AM By Ibanga Isine For 19-year-old Terhile Jirbo, it was another answer to the call of nature. But when gunfire rang out that afternoon of March 18, what seemed a harmless routine would leave a fatal scar on him and his community in Gboko, a major town in the North-central state of Benue. Members of Mbayion community in Gboko had responded after a soldier shot Mr. Jirbo for emptying his bowel near the Gboko Cement factory, the second most lucrative cement factory belonging to Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote. The attacker was one of two-dozen troops securing the multibillion-dollar factory. In protest of the shooting, the community members marched outside the factory, and for hours, they asked for justice. But as they hurled insults at the soldiers, asking them to leave the community, the troops responded with gunfire, according to state officials, witne ...

JONATHAN: North should wait till 2019 – Ameh Ebute Senator Ameh Ebute was merely one of the senators in the democratic experiment pushed by former Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida in the botched Third Republic until, he, in 1993 teamed up with some other senators to unseat the then president of the Senate, Senator Iyorchia Ayu. His stay in office was, however, very brief as within months, General Sani Abacha struck to dismantle the country’s then nascent democratic institutions. Following that, Ebute, in a daring rebuff of Abacha summoned a session of the Senate in Lagos to give legitimacy to the winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, Bashorun Moshood Abiola. For his action, he was thrown into detention alongside one of his fellow senators, Senator Ahmed Tinubu. On his release, Senator Ebute from the Idoma speaking area of Benue State in northern Nigeria laid low and reverted to his legal practice in Abuja. In an interview session with newsmen in Lagos, Senator Ebute divorces ...
BENUE: APC Patron, others join PDP Patron of opposition politics in the Benue South senatorial district, Chief Godwin Ukpoju has defected to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, vowing to work for the success of the party in the 2015 general elections in the area. Speaking during his decamping ceremony at Otukpo, Benue State at the weekend, Chief Ukpoju who decamped to the ruling party with thousands of his supporters, including the former deputy speaker of the state legislature, Ralph Igbago, said his former party, All Progressives Congress, APC was not democratic in its activities. “I left APC because it is an undemocratic party.

He appealed to the leadership of the PDP to provide a level playing ground for decampees to enable them participate fully in the activities of the party. Speaking while receiving the decampees into PDP, Gabriel ...

Akume decries the alleged siege on APC members in Ekiti Former Governor of Benue State and serving Senate Minority Leader, Senator George Akume has said that the siege on members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State was capable of throwing the whole democratic process in Nigeria into crisis. Akume in a statement in Abuja said Nigeria was drifting towards a dangerous trend in her politics going by the recent actions of the military in Ekiti ahead of today’s governorship election in the state. The Senate Minority Leader chided President Goodluck Jonathan for allowing soldiers under his command to harass Governor Rotimi Amaechi and prevent him from entering the state to attend the APC Governorship grand rally for Governor John Kayode Fayemi.

The Kogi State Police Command has arrested two fake bank operators who allegedly swindled the unsuspecting public of over N15m. The suspects are Michael Adekeye and Adebayo Ayobami, who were the top managers of West World Investment Limited. The State Police Commissioner, Mr. Seidu Madawaki, who disclosed this while parading the suspects in Lokoja yesterday at the police headquarters, stated that the duo and one James Akogun, who is now at large, had established a financial institution called West World Investment Limited in Lokoja, the state capital. Madawaki explained the operators of the company tricked unsuspecting depositors and collected over N15m.

Benue and Cross Rivers states have received the sum of US$5million (about N800million) to further promote sanitation in the two states. The fund was made available by Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council, WSSCC, through the Global Sanitation Fund. Signing the Memorandum of Understanding, MOU, on the grant in Abuja on Monday, Minister of Water Resources, Mrs Sarah Ochekpe, said it would require huge investment to achieve the country’s Millennium Development Goals’ target on sanitation. She said: “The population of Nigerians with access to basic sanitation and hygiene has been fluctuating from 37% in 1990 to 34% in year 2000; and it has gone up to 41% in 2012 under national assessment. “This is however far from our set national target on MDG of 65% by 2015 and 75% by 2020. For us to reach the stated MDG targets, massive investment is needed to provide access to water supply and basic sanitation and hygiene.

Two weeks ago i would have lost my life or atleast be fatally injured in Benue State, because some people thought i was fulani and were therefore ready to pounce on me. But for the intervention of an old or elderly man, the story would have been different today. I got thinking after that incidence, even if i were fulani, why attack me when i apparently do not have anything to do with the crises that happened some time ago. Doesn't it sound stupid to hear that a guy was attacked at Wurukum round about just because he is or suspected to be fulani? Well it is equally stupid for me to read that 486 people were arrested because they were suspected to be Boko Haram members. Is it every northerner that is a Boko Haram member? Who masterminded the arrest of these people and where were they arrested? Were they found with any weapon or caught planting a bomb? It is unfortunate that we relate with people more by ascribing them with where they come from than with who they actually are. When i told somebody about my e ...

NIGERIAN CHILDREN DESERVE THE BEST, GIVE THEM QUALITY EDUCATION. The country has continued to witness tremendous decline in the academic performance of our public schools and this will continue to happen even at a faster rate if government's attitude does not change regarding the management of schools. Public schools have been left unattended to by the government despite the God-given resources of our dear country to provide for all. Government does not care about schools and so different heads of schools are not concerned about the falling standard and academic performance of the students. Unfortunately, majority of these students are children of the less-privileged in our society who cannot afford to send them to private schools due to no fault of theirs. Such Nigerians who form the bulk of our society are entitled (under our domestic laws and other international laws applicable in our country) to quality education as of right. According to Section 15 of the Child's Right Act, a Nigerian child should ha ...

ONE YEAR STRIKE: POLYTECHNICS AND THEIR 101 CARE-FREE POLITICIAN-GRADUATES Ishaq Alhassan Today, June 15th, 2014, completes 14 months since Nigerian Polytechnics shut their classroom doors to students as a result of a dispute between the Federal Government and ASUP. If you take out The brief suspension of the strike for 2 months, you will be left with exactly 12 months since the closure of the schools. Yes, that's one whole year. What is sickening is the silence of Nigerians, especially graduates of polytechnics. That silence left me with just one simple conclusion; which is that, if you are looking for self-hating people - people with very little or no self-esteem - look no further than the polytechnic graduate. Some of them so hate themselves and their educational background that they just hide it. And I understand that society has been so unkind to them, and they have been so beat down by the system. I understand that HND holders with Credit or Distinction in Business Administration may be denied well ...

The Inside Story of Nigeria's First Military Coup - Part 2 By Max Siollun maxsiollun see Part I ( PART 2 KADUNA In the weeks leading up to January 15th Nzeogwu carried out reconnaissance on the official Lodge of the Northern Region Premier: the Sardauna of Sokoto Ahmadu Bello. Nzeogwu often took his men on a night-time “training exercise” known as “Exercise Damisa”. The men were unaware that the military exercise they were participating in was actually a practice run for a military coup to overthrow the Government. The commander of the 2nd Brigade in Kaduna Brigadier Ademulegun became aware of and was irritated by the night time training (when he became aware that soldiers had been going near the Premier’s Lodge). He reprimanded Nzeogwu in a telephone call and warned him to keep his military exercises a safe distance away from the Premier’s lodge. Although Ademulegun complained about the commotion, he took no further action as he was unaware of the exercise’s real purpose. Ademulegun wa ...

The Irony of the Sanusi Lamido Sanusi Emergence as Emir!!! I have read with both fun and shock, the reactions of the opposition critics on the emergence of SLS as the new Emir of Kano. While I have enjoyed the fun from some reactions, I have equally been shocked at the mentality of some of these online apologists. Lets examine some serious issues here: 1. The claim that SLS emerging as Emir will change 2015 election. How exactly is that going to happen? GEJ lost Kano in 2011 and still won by a landslide. So what difference will SLS as Emir of Kano make? What extra vote will he bring to the table? One person even claimed that as the second in command of all Muslims in Nigeria, he will turn the 2015 votes around. Are they suggesting that the 40% Christians in Northern Nigeria will follow SLS instructions? Secondly, if that is the case, let us all vote along Christian and Muslim lines and see how that goes. This whole anti GEJ campaign is really bringing out the real issues in Nigeria. Everyday, we see the N ...

According to a radio program this morning,teachers in Benue state haven't been paid in over 9 months!
Education should be the priority of any right thinking government. At least primary and secondary education. A lot of funds is budgeted and allocated for Education annually and the governors draw these funds down. Biko, Governor Suswan of Benue State, what is happening in your state? You also lay claim to having the Senate President as an original son of the soil! Shame on both of you. 9 months without pay? That is what you have subjected the teachers in that state to? Haba! This is a case for the EFCC... Pure and clear. Good People of Benue, put politics and sentiments behind you. Invoke the FOI bill and demand to know how much has been drawn on education and where and how it has been expended. Clue - if you cannot see what has been achieved with it, then it has been lining some fat cat's pockets somewhere. Obviously!
