Doctors’ Strike Paralyses Hospital Activities Nationwide By Our Correspondents — July 2, 2014 The directive by the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) to embark on an indefinite nationwide strike has elicited total compliance by doctors across the country. As a result, healthcare delivery service was yesterday paralysed at various government hospitals and healthcare centres nationwide. 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.

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”.

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 ...

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 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. The police commissioner stated that after the managers swindled the victims, mostly market women to the tune of over N15m, they relocated to Makurdi, Benue State, and used the parts of the proceeds to buy cars.
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. It is on this note that we welcome the support and participation of our developm ...
Leading APC leaders in Benue defect to PDP The gubernatorial running mate in the 2011 elections on the platform of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in Benue State, Abubakar Usman, aka Young Alhaji, has said that his faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has finally left the party even as he has declared that APC in Benue was “dead and buried.” Usman made this known while speaking in Makurdi even as another APC chieftain in the state, Chief Godwin Ukpoju has declared his intention to defect to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). Ukpoju was the Chairman of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) in Benue from 1999 to 2010. Governor Gabriel Suswam, who disclosed this while speaking with a cross-section of newsmen in Makurdi on Monday, noted that Ukpoju would be received by PDP chieftains in Oturkpo this weekend. When Daily Independent sought the comments of Benue APC chieftain, Senate Minority Leader, George Akume, on the mass defections of members of his party to the PDP, he decline ...

Jonathan appoints Tukur Ambassador-at-large June 17, 2014 FIVE months after a promise to give him tougher national assignment, President Goodluck Jonathan, has finally approved the appointment of the former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur as Ambassador-At-Large. Tukur, after months of intrigues, handed over his letter of resignation to Jonathan in January. His resignation was later announced to members of the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) and handed over to the national secretary of the party, Wale Oladipo, by the president who promptly said: “He (Tukur) is not guilty of any offence and I am going to give him an assignment that is tougher than that of PDP chairman.” Conveying the new appointment to Tukur, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs via email stated that as an ambassador-at-large and envoy, the former PDP national chairman would be assigned special duties by the president. It read: “Alhaji Tukur, erstwhile national chairman of the ruli ...

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 ...
DORA NKEM AKUNYILI AUTOBIOGRAPHY ON CHI T.V. Dora Nkem Akunyili (July 14, 1954 – June 7, 2014), was the Director General of National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control(NAFDAC) of Nigeria and Nigerian Minister of Information and Communications from 2008 to 2010. She was a pharmacist and governmental administrator who gained international recognition and won hundreds of awards for her work in pharmacology, public health and human rights.

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 ...

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!

Dampar has played host to various refugees fleeing crisis areas and have accommodated them well. Due to the proximity of Dampar to Plateau State, our business and trade has most often be with the Plateau people than with our brothers from Taraba state.

By ROSE EJEMBI, Makurdi While the Benue State Govern­ment has directed farmers who were displaced from their communities by Fu­lani invaders to go back and commence farming activities, the farmers have cried out that they have nothing to return to as their homes and farmlands have been de­stroyed by the invaders. Chairman of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) at the NKST Primary School, Ichwa camp, Jo­seph Ukpa, raised the alarm at the weekend, dur­ing the flag-off of distribu­tion of relief materials to them by Christian Aid Ni­geria in collaboration with Anglican Diocesan Devel­opment Society (ADDS) and Jireh Doo Foundation (JDF). Ukpa noted that shortly after the state government announced the need for the IDPs to return home, but had to return to camp because their houses and farmlands were in com­plete ruins with no assis­tance to resettle. “We tried to return to our various communities but on getting there, we discovered that our homes and farmlands were com­pletely destroyed by the Fu ...

As at the time I came into office, several things had collapsed. From banks to stock exchange, they had crashed. Inflation was at 15.6percent three months before I became Central Bank Governor; there was already instability in every sector of the economy. When I look back, I thank God for the people who supported us and criticized us as well because criticism has made us stronger. Also, when I look back, I can point to several things that have changed after our arrival and till date. Keeping inflation down For the first time in a long while, we have been able to keep inflation at about 7percent since January 2013 and it is still like that up till this moment. As far as instability and exchange rate is concerned, we have worked tirelessly to ensure things work out well for the economy. We also introduced cash reduction in the system. Although most people didn’t like it because they felt it will add more problem to the exchange rate because people want to buy dollars but against all odds, the cashless pol ...

Benue 2015: Those Interested in Suswan's Seat_ ThisDay. By George Okoh, in Makurdi The hopefuls trying to succeed Benue State Governor Gabriel Suswam and the permutations ahead of the 2015 governorship election Come May 2015, Benue State Governor Gabriel Suswam will be handing over the mantle of leadership to another person, having spent the maximum constitutional two terms of eight years in office. There are many hopefuls struggling for a place in the governorship contest, but 12 appear to be in the frontline. Huge Stakes Whoever will take over from Suswam will be expected to carry the people’s hopes for improved welfare and security. He will also carry the investors’ hopes for far-reaching economic reforms. Suswam has been able to shoulder these to the admiration of many in Benue State since 2007. The governor, widely described as one of the country’s few state chief executives that hit the ground running, has had an impressive record. He brought a speedy sense of administrative efficiency and int ...

Why have they not intervened? What is NBA doing? What are the Elder States men doing to resolve this issue. Governor Suswan, were you elected to rule or destroy the State?
"INSTANT CHANGE" THE IDOMA COMMUNITY IS ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENCIAL SET OF TRIBE IN NIGERIA. The Idoma are an ethno-linguistic group that primarily inhabit lower and western areas of Benue State, Nigeria, and kindred groups can be found in Cross Rivers and Nasarawa States in Nigeria. THE IDOMA ARE CLOSELY RELATED TO THE IGBO PEOPLE. The Idoma language is classified in the Akweya subgroup of the Idomoid languages of the Volta–Niger family. The Akweya subgroup is closely related to the Yatye-Akpa sub-group. The bulk of the territory is inland, south of river Benue, some seventy-two kilometers east of its confluence with river Niger. The Idoma are known to be warriors' and 'hunters of class, but hospitable and peace loving.

Senate seeks extension of permanent voter card distribution The Senate on Wednesday passed a resolution asking the Independent National Electoral Commission to extend the distribution of permanent voter card in some states, by two weeks. The upper chamber took the decision after the lawmakers had contributed extensively to a motion by Senator Ita Enang and supported by 107 other senators. Enang, whose motion was presented by Senator Abdul Ningi, explained that INEC conducted the distribution of the permanent card in some states between the May 23 and 25, 2014 but lamented that the process was faced with series of problems. Some of the problems identified in the motion included corruption of the central processing system by virus which resulted in the exclusion of the names of some voters from the published voters list and the non production of the cards for them. The motion observed that the time given for the distribution of the cards was too short and that the publicity given by INEC for the distrib ...

Is there any democracy in Benue state? Teachers has being on strike since September 2013 while public schools are under lock and keys throughout first term, second term and now third term running. private schools are now the most lucrative industry as those who can afford it send their children there while children of the poor remain perpetually at home and nobody seems to be doing anything. where are the medias? How much were they given by Gov. Suwan and his co-travelers to go total media blackout without a single publication by any media outlet or a broadcast? Nigerians need to know about this heinous crime. is this not worst than Boko Haram itself? this are many questions begging for answers. when a peaceful change is not possible, then violence change becomes inevitable. This is a PDP Boko Haram against children's education in Benue state and if nothing is done, then the Benue people will have no choice but to carry arms against them.
Reminiscing Biafra: Karma Koboko Thrashing *** Out Of Nigeria! Today Thursday, 29th May 2014, marks the 48th anniversary of the beginning of the genocide against the Igbos and South Easterners by the Nigeria State led by Hausa/Fulani and supported by the British colonialists/empire. Beginning from mid morning on the 29th May 1966, the Igbos and South Easterners were attacked at their homes, churches, hospitals, parks, businesses, schools, campuses, in private and public transports, everywhere, in towns and villages across most of Northern Nigeria by marauding Hausa/Fulani mobs armed with sticks, clubs, cudgels, guns, knives, machetes, cutlases, bow and arrow, etc and all sorts of weapons - in premeditated attacks led by Northern leaders, elites, Emirs, Imams, politicians etc. And mutiny against the Igbos military officers in the Nigeria Military led by Murtala Muhammed on 29th July 1966. The massacre of Igbos and South Easterners, which was sparked off by a violent demonstration by the students of Ahmadu ...
Random Thoughts On The Chibok Girls Azubuike Ishiekwene — May 30, 2014 For the first time since April 14 when 200-plus schoolgirls were abducted from Government Secondary School, Chibok, things seem to be looking up a bit. Thanks to the tenacity of Hadiza Bala Usman, Oby Ezekwesili and co, we have moved from doubt and despair to action and hope. But the road is long and fraught with uncertainties. The news that the girls have been located, if it proves to be true, should settle some matters. To be sure, we’re still walking on the knife-edge of hope. It’s only because we’ve been dragging President Goodluck Jonathan’s government by the knickers that we’ve managed to come this far. If the president had set aside politics, followed his heart and taken the lead from the day the girls were declared missing, maybe a few more of them would have been rescued. The whole sad episode might even have been over. Instead, the commander-in-chief turned over the field to the surrounding doubters-in-chief a num ...

A friend, Jim M. passed along that 11 of the school girls kidnapped in Nigeria by Boko Haram are Christians. Jan Towell received the following email from a preacher in that town in Nigeria: Dear Madame Towell, Good morning! I have read your email. We have been praying fervently for the Nigeria girls abducted at Chibok 45 days ago without knowing that some of them are members of the Lord's church until we received your email. I have just called the preacher of the Gboko Church of Christ, Gboko, Benue State. His wife is from Borno State, and he served the churches of Christ in Bornu State for several years before coming down to work with the Gboko church in his home state, Benue. He has confirmed the information to be true. In fact, I am composing this email with tears and a heavy heart. I will communicate other christians, and we will continue to pray until the girls are released. Thank you for the info, although it is a sad news! In christian love, Aniefiok Akpan Pray for these young people, and consider ...

The beauty and magnificence of the Obudu Mountain Resort, otherwise known as Obudu Cattle Ranch, has eclipsed Utanga community itself a splendour with gorgeous hillocks and imposing hills stretching asymmetrically to the nearby Obudu mountains and the distant, famed, mytical Swem Kalagbe mountains in the Cameroon. The lush green vegetation gleaming under the bright midday sun at the edges of sweeping vales and jagged foothills; and the sweet melodies of chirpping parots and finches by the cool streams was an unforgettable experience. Just about 28 kilometres from the paradisal foothills of the famous Obudu Cattle Ranch, Bessenge, the headquarters of Utanga nation conspicuously lies, but obviously neglected. Situated in Obanliku Local Government of Cross River State, the Utanga people, who speak the Utanga dialect, are believed to have a very close affinity with the Tiv people, who are their neighbours in the nearby Benue State. Obanliku Local Government Area, which was created by the military regime of G ...
Happy Democracy celebration to the commander in chief of arm forces; Dr. GEJ, senate pres and the speaker. The number 1 citizen of Benue state; Dr. GT Suswan his deputy, the local govt chairmen. And the good people of Nigeria-Benue state. I seize this opportunity to appreciate the effort of our security agents esp. the soldiers in ensuring peace and unity. In most cases, we citizens blame the govt(esp. Dr. GEJ) and military for not being able to conquer terrorism, we shouldn't blame them instead we should blame the terrorists for being stupid. We blame our soldiers forgetting that these soldiers have wives, children and relations and they also have value for their own lives. We also forget that they are being killed in the bushes in trying to protect lives of citizens. Please lets not forget that these soldiers are also human and not computers or robots. Don't blame our military rather encourage them but put the blame on the terrorists because they are enemies of progress. PREACH LOVE my brothers and sist ...

In the past, indigenes of Anambra, Edo and Akwa Ibom states never believed that their states could ever have leaders that would transform their states because of the non-performing leaders they had before. But today, former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi transformed it to what it is today; Governor of Edo State, Comr. Adams Oshiomohole has turned Edo State into a State that they are proud of; and Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom state has repositioned his state as well. Despite the imperfections of these governors, when their states are compared with most states in Nigeria, they are considered the best. The people of Benue State should have faith that Benue State will be transformed just like these states and even better. Vote for ENGR. EMMANUEL AKEM for Governor in 2015 and he will take us there. GOD LEADS THE WAY.
Sharing our democratic experience; 1999 till date. ( As we celebrate fifteen years of democracy today, colleges of education and polytechnics nationwide are on strike for almost a year now and nobody cares about the future of the youth that got themselves trapped in those institutions of higher learning. What an ugly experience.) Democracy according to Abraham Lincoln is government of the people, by the people and for the people. World over democracy is acknowledged as the best form of government and so when in 1999 Nigeria returned to democratic rule after long military mis-rule, the traumatized and disenchanted people of Nigeria rolled out drums to celebrate with pump and circumstance. The people had a sense of relief when General Olusegun Obasanjo a former Military head of state was sworn in as a civilian president on 29th May 1999. Obasanjo then at his inaugural speech promised to give us security, food, water, electricity and all the basic necessities of life. Our people gladly welcomed Obasanjo an . ...

Obasanjo moves to free abducted Chibok girls Headlines Wednesday, May 28, 2014 By Emmanuel Aziken, Political Editor ABUJA-Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has launched a move to free the more than 200 girls kidnapped by the Boko Haram sect from Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State. Obasanjo, who confirmed this to Vanguard last night, however, dismissed reports credited to a foreign news agency that he held talks with representatives of the sect in his Ota farm last weekend.He nevertheless confirmed that he was set to open explorative talks with the Islamic sect, having re-established contacts with a lawyer who mediated his discussion with the sect three years ago. Chief Obasanjo, however, regretted that efforts he made to end the insurgency at that time came to nought after President Goodluck Jonathan dismissed the conditions and capacities of the group. President Jonathan's dismissal of the group's capacities, he said, was despite the willingness of Governor Kashim Shettima of ...
In terms of fighting western education, Benue state is beating Boko Haram by 30%. Ie, Boko Haram 50%, and Benue state 80%. And Benue case is the worst because their own is from the roots (the Primary School). They are all agents of the FG in the fight against the western education in Nigeria.
decieving us that they filled a Memo requesting for the creation of Katsina-Ala, the National Confab Committee for political restructuring has revealed that only One (1) single Memo was submitted from Benue State. which of couse is for creation of APA State. I always suspected foul play especially Since one of the stakeholders here in Benue state needs that Katsina Ala, (which is long overdue for a state) to form part of his Kingdom or Territory when he finally becomes TOR SANKERA. Poor Tiv nation, Yet they still go and broadcast on their local stations how they love us and have even taken former president Obasanjo to Hague, International Court to prosecute for war crimes against Tiv (in Zaki Biam). Shame on you all so called Tiv Proffessors And Doctors whose writting is only good for Radio Benue and Ashi waves. U disgust me.
Democracy day? Tell that to the poor masses, tell that to those chibok girls, tell that to the primarily sch teachers in benue state who have been in strike for 7 months, tell that to the average Nigerian who can't afford a three-square meal.

Kai!!!,BSU don suffer 4 fb hand,everybody will write;Past Benue State University including those who hv not even seen d walls of higher institution.were,am not bothered,bcos my past will soon change.
While Chibok girls were in captivity and a bomb exploded in Nyanya killing many Nigerians, President Jonathan forged his 2015 campaign to Kano. Nigerians groaned, but he claimed that his action was a message to Boko Haram ; that they cannot bring government activities to a halt. Today's democracy day is without funfair (at least in Benue state where i claim witness) because of Boko Haram activities. Is this not a message to Boko Haram that they are winning the war?
i pray to God for Benue state workers that he should take charge of there familes Amen.
I think there is a deliberate attempt to disenfranchise some people in Benue State, how come some polling units that people registered and got their temporal voters card and have voted in the 2011/the state local government election, INEC will suddenly say something has gone wrong and hence they can not get their permanent voters card. I smell danger, is it because ACN won in the polling units in the last election? Hm, INEC, God deyo

Dear FB Friends HAPPY DEMOCRACY DAY I rejoice with you all on this occasion of the DEMOCRACY DAY Celebration. Low-key it may be, but the import of the Day isn't . May 29th means a lot. It signifies the Day of the power of the people and sovereignty. It recognizes that people have power to choose one of their own in a representative government. A government of the people, by the people, for the people. How close have we moved to this ideal? 2015 election Year draws close. Again you will be exercising your power to choose your Governor. As you move on, I know you want a Governor who will solve the twin problems of mass POVERTY, and rising YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT. BUILDING A STRONG ECONOMY This requires building a strong economy. An economy that creates wealth and good- paying jobs for all youths. To develop, BENUE State must industrialize and pursue agricultural revolution. We must break our dependence on allocations and chart alternative self- sustaining pathways to our economic prosperity. We must Diversify, e ...

BENUE GOVERNORSHIP 2015 WHY GWER WEST SHOULD GET THE SLOT As the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released its time table for the general elections next year indicating that Governorship elections will hold on 28th February, 2015, the race for the Makurdi Government House is becoming more interesting. Many people from all parts of Benue state have indicated their interest to run for the exalted position of governing the state and as the contest gathers momentum, it has become imperative to do a critical analysis of issues concerning the governorship of Benue State in the year 2015 for the purpose of clarity. Before we continue, we wish to state loudly and clearly that the issue of which Sénatorial Zone in Benue State produces the next Governor of the state in 2015 is not for the authors of this piece to decide because, we are on a democracy and in all democracies, it is the right of all qualified citizens except those constrained by statuses of the land to contest for any elective pos ...

Please pause and read this story At the early stage of my life as a young minister and also a newly married man,the ministry I work with sent me to makurdi in present benue state to start up a new work for the lord. Then unknown to me that the compound I was living in was owned by a witchdoctor,so one night I had come in from the church where I had gone for a prayer meeting and there was no light so I went outside to relex outside and have some fresh air.

THE MESSAGE BEHIND ORTOM'S STRATEGY COMMITTEE The Benue political cloud from every indication is getting clearer as 2015 clocks 7 months to arrive. The question on who to replace Dr Gabriel Suswam, CON, in 2015 has begun in earnest and a substle political wind is gradually but steadily seperating genuine contestants from appointment seekers. One of the guber contender whom i noticed has caught Benue's passion on reasons of sincerity and trust is Dr. Samuel Ortom, now State Minister of Trade and Investment and supervising Minister of Aviation. Though like the proverbial prophet, many have questioned his sincerity of purpose, even as others doubt his ability to live up to the enormous hopes of the suffering Benue masses. To them, he is over glorified! One thing spectacular about Ortom is that both his admirers and haters have no genuine indictment to put forward against him. The Ortom incubus and intrigue was heightened early hours of yesterday with a release of a provisional list by one of the prolific an ...
UNITED WITH THE SPIRIT. The sky was brightly coloured, it shone and flourished abundantly as it grew more in brightness. The leaves of the trees were spared by the wind which ocassionally caressed their leaves. The voices of the city was still silent but it had began to increase as the city grew more in liveliness. "Get ready today, I will speak through you. Make you sure you eat and be very satisfied before you go for that prayer in the evening." The HolySpirit paused. "Do you hear me?" "Yes Father", I answered. Obediently, I ate that night and I was satisfied as I was directed. We started our prayers at the basket ball court of the Benue State University. As we prayed, the leader of the prayers said the anointing of the prophetic is coming upon someone here. Immediately, a heavy power swept me from my feet to the marble floor. My body shook forcefully for close to one hour. I was still on the floor and silence had arrested the air of the prayer ground. I was still shaking on the floor and the fire ros . ...
Another day is here. I thank God for the coincidence, they say today is Democracy Day, I say today is Christ's Ascention Day. To the abducted Chibok girls; to the Primary School pupils & instructors in Benue State; to the innocent souls felled by bullets & explosions from the BH insurgents; to the selfish politicians; to the decayed judiciary; to the 'material' clergy; to the insecure populace; to the teaming unemployed youths; to peasants; to market men & women; to civil servants; to beaurocrats; to artisans; to all & sundry; I know one thing: "Jesus will come back in the same way you have seen Him go into heaven."

"FG Must Compensate Boko Haram and Send Them Abroad Like Niger Delta Militants"-Northern Elder . Going by the position of northern delegates at the ongoing National Conference, it seems the North is against true federalism and regional autonomy. Why? What is true federalism and what has the North said that shows that it is against federalism? There is federalism in Nigeria right now. The federal system is a system of government where certain powers are left with the federating units. The question is whether you want the centre to be strong or weak. Some want the centre to be weak, others want it to be strong. We, in Nigeria, voted for a strong centre. Chief Obafemi Awolowo kept on saying that what was needed was a complete Sovereign National Conference of the ethnic nationalities that make up Nigeria. He said these ethnic nationalities should be convoked into a Sovereign National Conference or a constituent assembly and that these ethnic nationalities should form the federating units of Nigeria. His colle ...

WHY DR. EUGENE ALIEGBA WILL NEVER BE GOV OF BENUE STATE! A PDP gov aspirant Dr Eugene Aliegba said Nigeria has made appreciable progress in Education with the return of democracy in Nigeria since 1999. He disclosed this when he was hosted by NTA Makurdi network centre on a personality program " how u na see am" He said there are many schools in Nigeria now compared to what was obtained(sic) in those days. He scored Gov Suswam high on his administration saying if elected as Gov next year, HE WILL BUILD ON THE LEGACIES OF SUSWAM.
As we acknowlege democratic reign in Nigeria let us also realise that in Benue Sate atleast FOUR MAJOR exist- Tiv ; Idoma; Igede and Etilo(Utugh) in their populative order of recognition respectively. History has revealed that the no 1 political seat (Governor) had always been occupied by the dominant tribe , the Tiv nation out of majority . Is it not reasonable for Idoma nation which is 2nd in population serve her State as GOVERNOR. of Benue State. Is it justifiable swimming in pool of odds infinitum? perhaps a corner stone might be found by the mercy of ALMIGHTY GOD who dwells every where and always! Let's contribut our bit and hope for true democracy that comes from GOD as we await the coming of the HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.

CELEBRATING THE 3 YEARS OF GOVERNOR ABDULFATAH AHMED MAGIDA, THE EXECUTIVE GOVERNOR OF KWARA STATE: A BRIEF OF KWARA Kwara State was created on 27 May 1967, when the Federal Military Government of General Yakubu Gowon broke the four regions that then constituted the Federation of Nigeria into 12 states. At its creation, the state was made up of the former Ilorin and Kabba provinces of the then Northern Region and was initially named the West Central State but later changed to "Kwara", a local name for the River Niger. Kwara State has since 1976 reduced considerably in size as a result of further state creation exercises in Nigeria.
