WHO ARE THE IGBOS? I will not detain you with genealogical or anthropological exercise here.

: Thabo Mbeki I am an African - Thabo Mbeki`s speech at the adoption of the The Republic of South Africa Constitution Bill 8 May 1996, Cape Town Chairperson, Esteemed President of the democratic Republic, Honourable Members of the Constitutional Assembly, Our distinguished domestic and foreign guests, Friends, On an occasion such as this, we should, perhaps, start from the beginning. So, let me begin. I am an African. I owe my being to the hills and the valleys, the mountains and the glades, the rivers, the deserts, the trees, the flowers, the seas and the ever-changing seasons that define the face of our native land. My body has frozen in our frosts and in our latter day snows. It has thawed in the warmth of our sunshine and melted in the heat of the midday sun. The crack and the rumble of the summer thunders, lashed by startling lightening, have been a cause both of trembling and of hope. The fragrances of nature have been as pleasant to us as the sight of the wild blooms of the citizens of the veld. Th ...

New credit amendments give paid-up consumer amnesty National Credit Amendment Bill: Address by the Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr Rob Davies, to National Assembly 27 Feb 2014 Honourable Speaker and Honourable Members, it gives me great pleasure to introduce the National Credit Amendment Bill (NCAB) in the National Assembly. The NCAB follows intensive assessments of the effectiveness of the National Credit Act, 2005 (“the Act”), as well as extensive consultation with various stakeholders, both within and outside Government. As the banking sector accounts for about 90% of the credit market, consultation with National Treasury was critical as these matters relate to this sector. During the assessment of the effectiveness of the Act, all reviews revealed one thing in common, that this is one of the best pieces of legislation to have been passed by this Government. It was far sighted and its existence cushioned this economy from what could have been a disaster when the world was hit by the financial cr ...

Madam Speaker, Honourable Members may recall that in April last year, the Mid-Term Review of NDP 10 was adopted by this House.

DETAILS OF 2014 BUDGET OF OUR DEAR STATE TEXT OF THE 2014 PLATEAU STATE BUDGET TAGGED “BUDGET OF CONTINUITY AND INCLUSIVE GROWTH IV” PRESENTED TO THE PLATEAU STATE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY BY GOVERNOR, JONAH DAVID JANG, ON THURSDAY, DECEMBER 19TH, 2013. Mr Speaker, Honourable Members, At the inception of the second tenure of this administration under Redemption II, we asked ourselves three fundamental questions. First, what will it take to secure our position as the Home of Peace and Tourism? Second, how can we provide equal opportunity for all persons regardless of ethnicity, religion and political affiliation? Third, how can we transform and secure the livelihood of our people, thereby give them the best quality of life? My presence here in 2011, 2012 and 2013 was all geared towards providing concrete answers to these fundamental questions. We equally realise that attaining these goals is an uphill task which we have remained committed to achieving. It is out of our deep desire to succeed in this direction ...
CONCLUSION Mr. Speaker, Honourable Members of Parliament, Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen, Last week I attended the funeral service for a great African, President Nelson Mandela. The measure of his life was the heights he scaled to move his people to the realization of their aspirations; and in so doing he restored his country’s dignity in the eyes of the world; a great country blighted by the deprivations of apartheid became an example of progressive politics. What led Mandela to take that great role came on in little pieces; in little indignities he suffered as a black man, until one day he took the decision to join the battle for dignity, progress, and democracy. Every nation has that which blights its credentials, every nation has that which hinders its progress, and it is the call of progressive men and women to remove these hindrances and unleash the energies of their people for achieving the full potentials of their humanity. Many amongst us have usually been taken aback by the irritations and ...

Štefan Füle European Commissioner for Enlargement and Neighbourhood Policy What Bosnia and Herzegovina needs to do to move on EU path Plenary session of the European Parliament/ Brussels 22 May 2013 President, Honourable Members, Let me first of all thank Doris Pack for an excellent Draft Report on Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). Last year I told you that when speaking about Bosnia and Herzegovina, it is difficult to be overly positive. Unfortunately I have the same problem this year. As your Draft Report points out, progress has again been extremely limited. I am just as concerned about the political elite's continued lack of a shared vision for the overall direction of the country. As the motion states, the country is "falling further behind the other countries of the region". Because of our concerns, the European Union has increased its engagement with Bosnia and Herzegovina and increased political facilitation efforts at all levels. Over the past several months, considerable political and diplomatic a ...
"Mr. Speaker, Sir, I am happy once again to address this august House this morning.

ADDRESS BY President Jacob Zuma IN RESPONSE TO THE DEBATE ON THE PRESIDENCY BUDGET VOTE National Assembly, CAPE TOWN 13 JUNE 2013 Honourable Speaker, Deputy President, Ministers and Deputy Ministers, Honourable Members, Good afternoon to you all. This year’s Presidency Budget Vote debate took place during a critical time in our country. There is still no end in sight to the global financial crisis and economic growth still seems a bit elusive. We are therefore going through a period that requires unity and common purpose. It requires leaders from all sectors to lead the country towards action that builds confidence in the economy and which makes our economy more resilient. It is a period of focusing on solutions and of working together to solve our problems. It is the time of counting our achievements and our blessings as a nation. In our achievements, we draw lessons and the strength to overcome whatever challenges we may be facing at any particular time. In this regard, I raised yesterday the need to ...
REASON FOR GOV.ROCHAS VISIT TO ROME EXPOSED Posted by admin on May 16th, 2013 and filed under Frontpage, News. By Ohanele Casca The reason for the recent shuttle visit to Rome by Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has been uncovered. The visit, it was revealed by one of the governor’s aide was packaged by Cardinal Arinze who secured an appointment for the governor to meet with Pope Francis I, in the wake of the continued resistance by Mbaise Nation over the imposition of Monsgr Okpaleke on Ahiara Diocese. During the visit, the governor was urged to provide security for the installation of the Ahiara Diocese Bishop designate to which the Governor promised to carry out. The governor it was understood has already briefed the three Honourable Members of the House of Assembly from Mbaise and the three Solads to ensure a water tight security for a smooth installation of the Bishop. This development coming at the wake of continued distaste of the manner the Bishop is being forced on Ahaira Diocese by Cardin ...
Budget Vote Speech by the Minister of Higher Education and Training, Blade Nzimande, MP, to the National Assembly, Cape Town 8 May 2013 Honourable Speaker / House Chairperson, Cabinet Colleagues and Deputy Ministers, Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee, Honourable Members of Parliament, Director-General and Staff of the department, Heads and Executives of all our Post-School Organisations and Institutions, My family, Honoured guests, My special guests Ladies and gentlemen and comrades. Introduction This year 2013 marks the 60th Anniversary of the Bantu Education Act which introduced and systematised a racist system of education aimed at severely restricting the educational opportunities of blacks in this country. Most of our government’s efforts with regard to education since 1994 have been aimed at overcoming this burdensome legacy together with the entire oppressive inheritance of colonialism and apartheid. Great progress has been made over the past 19 years in expanding access and success in post ...
"Governor seeks approval of another bond. Gives to lobby State House of Assembly. 26 Honourable Members. Each gets Source Prodigal Sons of Ogun.
Here is the full text of the our respected President’s address in which he laid out the government’s agenda in the forthcoming session. “Honourable Members, 1. I welcome you to this session as I address this joint sitting of the two Houses for the first time as President. I hope this session will be productive and useful. Pranab Mukherjee spoke on issues including safety of women, economic slowdown, inflation and cross-border relations. 2.

Our youth, our greatest national asset, are a confident and courageous lot. I have no doubt that their passion, energy and enterprise will take India to new heights. 3. Amidst these aspirations, we are also burdened by gathering anxieties about economic slowdown, job security and employment prospects. People are concerned about the security of our women and children. They are als . ...

Zuma speaks on Health (14.02.2013) - with thanks to Health-e News Alerts received today, 21 February 2013 President Zuma discussed a range of health issues in his State of the Nation Address, specifically National Health Insurance, TB and lifestyle diseases. Read the part of his speech dealing with health here. Honourable Members, Five years ago, South Africa had such a low life expectancy that experts suggested that by 2015, our life expectancy would have been exactly where it was in 1955. It was with good reason that we were delighted when late last year, studies from the Medical Research Council, the Lancet medical journal and others began reporting a dramatic increase in life expectancy from an average baseline of 56 years in 2009 to 60 years in 2011. These reports also noted significant decreases in infant and under five mortality. Increased life expectancy is a key to the country's development. People are returning to work, they are being productive, economically and socially. The family structure . ...
SoNa gives some clarity in what might be meant by 'essential service': …Honourable Members, On education, we are pleased that the Grade 12 pass rate is finally on an upward trend. We congratulate the Class of 2012, their teachers, parents and communities for the continued improvement. … The Annual National Assessments in our schools, have become a powerful tool of assessing the health of our education system. We welcome the improvement each year in the ANA results, but more must be done to improve maths, science and technology. The Department of Basic Education will establish a national task team to strengthen the implementation of the Mathematics, Science and Technology Strategy. We urge the private sector to partner government through establishing, adopting or sponsoring maths and science academies or Saturday schools. …We declared education as an apex priority in 2009. We want to see everyone in the country realising that education is an essential service for our nation. By saying education is a ...
SONA im happy the country is taking a different direction towards the goal of five priorities few words from the president during his SONA: Honourable Members, I would now like to report on progress made since the last State of the Nation Address and also to discuss our programme of action for 2013. I will look at the five priorities – education, health, the fight against crime, creating decent work as well as rural development and land reform. Last year, I addressed the nation on government’s infrastructure plans. By the end of March this year, starting from 2009, government will have spent about 860 billion rand on infrastructure. Various projects are being implemented around the country. I will discuss just a few. The construction of the first phase of the Mokolo and Crocodile River Water Augmentation has commenced and it will provide part of the water required for the Matimba and the Medupi power stations. The construction of the bulk water distribution system for the De Hoop Dam began in October ...

emissions of carbon dioxide the Honourable Members opposite will tax into submission.
Just a simple question. The National Assembly has, over the years been appropriating more than enough of Tax payers money to themselves. There had been public out-cry, and the out-cry continues... Now do Honourable Members and Senators from "above-board" parties like, CPC, and ACN also partake in the obvious looting of the people's money by the PDP led Government?
The Senate President says that the Information Minister Labaran Maku is a 'Careless talker!'. Meanwhile the same careless talker - mr. Maku has apologised profusely to the 'Honourable Members' of the National Assembly for his 'slip' of tongue!!
European Commission José Manuel Durão Barroso President of the European Commission State of the Union 2012 Address Plenary session of the European Parliament/Strasbourg 12 September 2012 Mr President, Honourable Members, 1.
Re-Adamawa Parliament:- Hon. Jibrin Usman Yelwa. We elected men and women who our society refer to as Honourable Members to represent us in the decission making of our State and by extention, our country. Now, the boggling question is, how effective do you think your Member's representation is?. Good? Bad? Average? Last time I wrote about my own representative, Hon. Jibril Usman Yelwa, representing Ganye Constituency about his performance in the SHA. I called on him to help fullfil his campaign promises and move a motion on the floor of the House for a speedy supply of fertilizer in Ganye LGA-Home Basket of Adamawa State. Some believed the medium used to call on the Hon. Member was wrong. That I should meet him privately and advice him on issues of governance. That being in the same party, I shouldn't criticise him but mend fences. Some even thought that the criticism is politically motivated, sponsored by Jibril's political rivals. However, I have come to realised that the major set-back we have as a pe ...
No right thinking person will believe that all the names left out of Farouk Lawan Fuel Subsidy Report deserve to be left out as Hon Farouk Lawan must have received bribes to do so . Similarly, not all names in that Report can have a sustainable prosecution in the law courts as cases against them may not be watertight. If the public wants them to be convicted is it as a form of miscarriage of justice or to give the thieves who have been deleted from the lists cause to rejoice that they ripped Nigeria and used paltry sum which they offered as bribe to (Dis) Honourable Members to remove their names from being punished? I think a thorough and comprehensible job have to be done. All oil marketers should have a searchlight beamed on them. I am surprise that oil marketers like OandO, AP , Texaco and a host of others were not indicted in the Reports yet few of these Companies constitute 70% of fuel importers into this country. I can not imagine.
Several important implications follow from these cases. First, no matter what our legislators say or do, they will have a hard time convincing a sceptical public why they should continue to be addressed as Honourable Members. To be sure, not all House members are dishonourable. Nevertheless, the corrupt practices associated with the House; its tardiness in passing bills; the inexplicable death of its probe reports; and its members’ jumbo pay make all Representatives accomplices. That’s why, until they prove otherwise, the public and the news media are being encouraged to stop addressing them as Honourable Members. Second, these cases further reveal that the PDP, which has been ruling the country since 1999, is a very corrupt political party. Recall that all the leading House members allegedly involved in corruption are members of the PDP. All the indicted or imprisoned former governors, from Joshua Dariye and Diepreye Alamiesieyegha to Lucky Igbinedion and James Ibori, are members of the party. Most, ...
N900 Milion gift:Dankwambo defends House of Reps Members- News. I am so pleased that our Honourable Members in the House of Reps have finally opened up that before now constituency allowance was given which was either eaten or lavished on private things. That fact that this set of reps from Gombe state are donating that same amount that was never seen or used for any project in the state need to be commended. Pls. Dankwambo make sure you use the money for what its is meant. We are waiting for our Senators to declear their own constituency allowances for the good of the state. God Bless Gombe State.
