2015: Tread sofly with your statements, Clark warns Amaechi, Shema, others By Henry Umoru Abuja—The governors of Rivers and Katsina States, Rotimi Amaechi and Ibrahim Shema have been warned by former Federal Commissioner for Information and South South leader, Chief Edwin Clark to be mindful of using inflammatory and provocative statements, capable of over heating the polity ahead of 2015 general elections. Addressing Journalists yesterday at his Asokoro residence in Abuja, Chief Clark, while pleading with those he described as political gladiators to allow the Nigeria people to decide in 2015, took a swipe at Governor Chibuike Amaechi’s statement on Wednesday, November 19 during the Salvation rally in Abuja by the All Progressives Congress, APC. He said Amaechi’s statements were not only unfortunate, but treasonable, just as he condemned Shema’s allusion to those in opposition as cockroaches that must be crushed. Clark stressed that it was highly condemnable describing human beings as cockroaches ...
Fresh crisis is brewing within the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) as some governors are said to be angry with the party’s National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, for allegedly tampering with the result of the ward congresses in their respective states. The aggrieved governors include, Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State, Gabriel Suswam of Benue State, Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom, Ibrahim Shema of Katsina State and Liyel Imoke of Cross River State, Punch reports. Also, some members of the party’s National Working Committee are accusing one another of taking side with some influential members of the party in some states concerning the recently held ward congresses. It was gathered that the matter which has already been reported to President Goodluck Jonathan was threatening the chances of the party winning the forthcoming 2015 elections in some states. Speaking on the matter on Abuja on Monday evening, November 18, two members of the NWC accused some other members of the NWC of working against some ...
Katsina APC cry out over Shema’s description that APC members are cockroaches People have continued to react to the call by Katsina State Governor Ibrahim Shema to hit members of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state like cockroaches. They are threatening to petition the Inspector General of Police and the Department of State Security Service (DSS) over the call. In a video, which has gone viral, the governor is seen speaking to supporters where he called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) loyalists to hit opponents like the cockroaches. The Katsina State chairman of APC, Mustapha Inuwa said the party would petition the Inspector General of police and the State Security Services to investigate such utterance as they could not fold their arms to be threatened with violence by the governor.

Nigeria, again, will spend a fortune on officials traveling abroad with President Goodluck Jonathan’s typically oversize presidential delegation to the World Cup in Brazil announced this week. If the mega-size team had any chance escaping public attention, a similar presidential delegation announced by United States President Barack Obama, sealed it. Mr. Jonathan’s team comprises governors, ministers, federal lawmakers and diplomats- totalling more than a dozen; while Mr. Obama’s has an advisor, a diplomat and two former athletes only. The Nigerian team, led by the Senate President, David Mark, includes the Governor of Cross River State, Liyel Imoke; Governor of Katsina State, Ibrahim Shema; the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Bala Mohammed; the Minister of Education, Nyesome Wike. Others are the Minister of Culture and Tourism, Edem Duke; the Minister of Youth Development, Boni Haruna; the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Viola Onwuleri; the Chairman, Senate Committee on Sports, Ad ...

Security Council gives military ultimatum to find abducted schoolgirls … Govs, others blast Nyako over memo on genocide From JULIANA TAIWO-OBALONYE, ABUJA The military was yesterday handed marching orders by the enlarged National Security Council (NSC) to rescue all the female students of Government Girls’ Secondary School (GGSS), Chibok, Borno State, kidnapped by suspected Boko Haram members since April 14 this year. The NCS meeting, attended by governors, service chiefs, select religious leaders, ministers and top shots of other security agencies, extracted an assurance from the military that everything possible would be done to rescue scores of the schoolgirls whose abduction had attracted widespread condemnation from within and outside the country.

This is even as the enlarged NCS meeting upbraided Adamawa State Governor, Admiral Murtala Nyako, for his genoc ...
Expanded security meeting condemns Nyako’s memo ADAMAWA State Governor Murtala Nyako came under attack yesterday at the expanded National Security Council meeting for his controversial memo on the Federal Government’s handling of the insurgency in the North. Nyako alleged that the Federal Government was carrying out genocide with the intention to depopulate the North in the name of fighting terrorism. Apart from the traditional members of the council, governors attended yesterday’s meeting over which President Goodluck Jonathan presided. It lasted for about seven hours. The meeting resolved to exploit anti-poverty strategies, among others, to end the insurgency. It did not discuss whether to extend or end the State of Emergency in the three Northeast states of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa, but sought more collaboration among the three tiers of government to fight terrorism. Four governors – Babangida Aliyu (Niger), Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti), Theodore Orji (Abia), Kashim Shettima (Borno) – spoke to State ...
An expanded security meeting between President Goodluck Jonathan, state governors, Heads of military and Para-military organisations, and religious leaders which was held in Aso rock villa has anonymously condemned Governor Murtala Nyako's recent memo to the Northern Governors forum. Addressing newsmen after the meeting, General Aliyu Gusau, Minister of Defence aid the meeting enjoined all holders of Public offices to be wary of statements that are capable of exacerbating the already precarious security situation in the country. Governor Babaginda Aliyu of Niger State also said, "I am sure many of you will be curious about the memo written by one of us. We looked at it all. In fact he was allowed to read the memo to all of us and we discussed and concluded that for all of us, we need to be very careful with the kind of statement we make". The meeting also tasked the military to ensure the rescue of the abducted school girls in Chibok, Borno. Also addressing newsmen Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State sa ...
2015: Governors give PDP, Jonathan three conditions Protest votes threat rocks ruling party over automatic tickets, others Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors have given three conditions to back President Goodluck Jonathan’s yet-unannounced re-election bid. The conditions are: •allowing outgoing governors to choose their successors; •automatic second term tickets for those running first term in office; and •automatic senatorial seats for governors aspiring to be in the Senate. Although Jonathan is set to emerge the sole presidential candidate of the PDP, all is not well within the party on how to meet the demands of the governors, a source told The Nation. Some of the governors are threatening protest votes in their states if they are not allowed to have their way. PDP National Chairman Adamu Muazu is said to be battling to manage the situation. Muazu, who is opposed to automatic tickets, has to devise means of accommodating the agitation of the governors, a source said. Of the 36 states, PDP ...

Politics is about development, not trading words, Jonathan insists President Goodluck Jonathan Thursday again advised politicians in the country to focus their attention on development rather than engaging in insults and abuses. Jonathan had recently made similar remarks when Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi and other delegates from the state paid a courtesy call on him at the State House, Abuja. The President gave the new advise Thursday while speaking at the commissioning ceremony of the 3- lane 48 kilometers long Katsina Ring road in Katsina State. According to him, politics is about infrastructural development and creating an enabling environment for businesses to thrive and not about shouting on the pages of newspapers. Jonathan, who is in Katsina on a two-day state visit, hailed the foresight and infrastructural drive of the Ibrahim Shema- led administration in the state. He said: “Shema is a great supporter of the administration. He is also a great member of the party. This project is being comm ...

Your Sojourn in APC will not be successful, Muazu tells Atiku, G5 Gov ABUJA- NATIONAL Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Adamu Muazu Thursday told the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, G5 Governors who dumped the party for All Progressives Congress, APC that they were embarking on what he described as an unsuccessful sojourn. Speaking at Wadata Plaza, PDP National Secretariat when he received the Katsina State delegation of the PDP led by the Governor Ibrahim Shema, Muazu who pleaded with them to return to PDP family, said, “I appeal to those our members who have been wronged and decided to embark on a journey that is not successful to come back home.” Urging PDP members, leaders, stakeholders of the party not to relent in praying for PDP and its leaders, said, “you know we have lost members, but through your prayers, I will succeed in recovering all lost ground.” Reiterating that he would deepen democracy in the party and that only the best in the party shall be pres ...

Suswam makes U-turn, surfaces at northern govs’ forum Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue State on Monday in Kaduna surfaced at the meeting of the Northern State Governors’ Forum against his earlier declaration never to attend the meeting of the forum. Suswam vowed never to attend the governors’ meeting at the peak of the controversy surrounding the election of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, where Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State polled 19 votes against 16 votes polled by Plateau State Governor, Mr. Jonah Jang, in May 2013.

Today a meeting of well meaning opposition youths under the auspice of Katsina Dialogue for Change was disrupted by errant PDP youths under the autocratic leadership of Barr Ibrahim Shema, the state Governor. This politics of intolerance is taking its toll in my dear state of Katsina, using sponsored thugs, who themselves are being abused by the system we so dearly want to change. It is indeed regrettable that the PDP led government of Ibrahim Shema has nothing to offer the youths of Katsina State, other than thuggery, treachery, vandalism & hooliganism. The freedom of association, political affiliations & beliefs are guided by the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria. As a reminder, not long ago, the FG used the police to disrupt a peaceful of elected governors, violating all laws of the land which guarantees our freedom of expression. Now if these happenings are a true reflection of our democracy, then one can easily conclude that we are being governed by the dictatorship in the history of ou ...

“Some of us are old enough to have Amaechi as son” – Gov. Jang Gov. Jonah Jang of Plateau recently granted an interview to the National Mirror, in which he talked about the controversy in the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) in which he plays a vital role being the losing candidate in the election who has nonetheless refused to concede. Here are excerpts from the interview: Since the May 24 election of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, NGF, of which you claimed to be the chairman, the Forum has been polarised along Governors Rotimi Amaechi and Jang. What are your plans to reunite the NGF? I thought we should be getting over the NGF palaver by now. We are trying to put all this misunderstanding to rest but let me say this: I did not know that the NGF is taken so importantly in this country until this problem of its chairmanship came up. It is just a casual meeting of friends, even though we are from different political parties, but if you see us meeting either at NGF or Council of States or Economic C ...

INTELLECTUAL DECEPTION OR INCURERABLE IGNORANCE - THE CASE OF NURUDDEEN DARDA'U It saddens me when I have to waste valuable time that should otherwise be used to contribute more in making humanity better than responding to incoherent and gibberish attempts to promote lies and celebrate inept regimes completely disconnected from the public because they are built on self serving principles. Just came across an "improved version" of "USTAZ DIKKO TSAURI" - wasn't any less clownish though, one Nuraddeen Darda'u who seemed to be over himself trying to explain and justify the crude and inhuman style of the Shema regime that is acknowledged by all - well, not all. There are few Darda'us and Tsauris here and there who seemed to be having a huge problem trying to reconcile their empty lies with the glaring facts on the ground for other expectations rather than joint efforts to build a fully functional free society. Their problem is further compounded by a clear deficit in moral uprightness and minimum grasp of the ...
RE - CRITICISM OR ACCUSATION: The Katsina State Story It was not my intention to respond to the above titled piece written by one Ustaz Dikko Tsauri, a new recruit to the ever growing 'Shema Vanguard' that seemed *** bent on selling a dummy to the good people of Katsina State. Perhaps, Tsauri was in such a blind rush to be registered in this unholy vanguard that he failed to attend the necessary orientation courses before jumping into the arena. But for this lack of initiation rites, Tsauri might have learned about all the pending questions hanging on the Shema regime that he so belatedly laboured to protect. Still, let's look at the merits (or lack of them) of his arguments. It was clear that his main grouse was the failure of previous attempts to convince the public of an imaginary success story that could not pass the test of public scrutiny and exist only in the imagination of its authors who seemed to be contented with living on the misfortunes of others. Now, if I may ask, is it suppose to be my pr ...

2015: Jonathan predicts two party system Posted by: Our Reporter in News 14 hours ago 6 Comments In an apparent reference to the emerging All Progressives Congress (APC), President Goodluck Jonathan has predicted the evolution of a two-party system ahead of the 2015 general elections. Jonathan, who spoke at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said Nigerians were no longer interested in forming new parties. Instead, the President said political parties were merging to form a formidable opposition to the ruling PDP. He said the development would help in stabilising the polity. Jonathan said: “If you look at the evolution of political parties, it is now stable. Before, when elections are coming, you will hear about new parties being formed. At a time, the ballot paper was becoming too long and INEC was finding a way of deregistering parties. “Because PDP has come on very strong, no matter the criticism, they know that we are very strong and they realise t ...

NBA PRESIDENT OKEY WALI – CALL THIS NGF TO ORDER The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) silence on the irresponsible behaviour of the members of the Nigerian Governors Forum is most unfortunate. One would have thought the NBA by now will come out with a position on the shameful elections between 36 people causing this kind of controversy. If the centre cannot hold amongst 36 men, how is it expected to hold in an election of 160 million people? Musiliu Akinsanya a k a MC Oluomo and his 36 Kiniun (lions) members in Oshodi, Lagos must be having a good laugh, seeing governor who cannot control themselves seeking to control them and their drivers’ union. Within this group of irresponsible people, there are at least five lawyers. Babatunde Fashola, a senior advocate, Gabriel Suswan, Liyel Imoke, Godswill Akpabio, Rotimi Amaechi (still in college studying law in London)and Ibrahim Shema. If five lawyers cannot uphold the rule of law that guides a simple process of choosing a leader amongst 36 men, will the whole ...

Kidnapping: Katsina Govt. Sets Up Security Committee On Expatriates Katsina State Government on Monday constituted a security committee to provide security cover to expatriates working in the state. The Commissioner of Police in the state, Alhaji Abdullahi Magaji, disclosed this to newsmen in Katsina shortly after the state security meeting chaired by Gov. Ibrahim Shema. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that the decision followed the kidnapping of a Frenchman, Mr Francis Colump in Rimi Local Government Area of the state two months ago by gunmen. It was also prompted by the recent abduction of seven expatriates in Jama'are, Bauchi State and similar incidents in other parts of the country. The commissioner said that members of the committee were drawn from police, State Security Service (SSS), Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and the army. Magaji said the committee was mandated to identify the number of expatriates working in the state, their location and telephone numbers, to be ab ...

Katsina Gov’s Wife Orders Sack Of LG Staff Wife of Katsina State governor, Hajiya Fatima Ibrahim Shema, has ordered the sack of the supervisory councillor for water and sanitation in Matazu local government area of the state, Hajiya Hadiza Ibrahim. Mrs Shema reportedly gave the directive to sack Hajiya Hadiza Ibrahim, the only female councillor at the Matazu local government transition management committee through a letter of “termination of appointment” dated 27th December, 2012. Part of the letter which was signed by Bala Lawal Yaro, a staff officer at Matazu local government reads “I am directed by the Office of Her Excellency, Hajiya Dr Fatima Ibrahim Shehu Shema, to issue you this letter of termination in view of your unkindly like misconduct and behaviour.” LEADERSHIP reports that the sacked councillor and the wife of Matazu local government council transition management committee chairman had recently engaged each other in a free-for-all scuffle at the council secretariat. It was gathered ...
Here's what OBJ has to say about Rtd Gen. Muhammed Buhari. .Gen. Muhammadu Buhari is an upright man. Not many people know that his 1st daughter is married to an Igbo man from Anambra. He exempted Christians from performing duty on Sundays. When his Muslim soldiers asked him to exempt them from duty on Friday, he told them the bible says Christians should rest on the 7th day, the Muslims should show him where the Koran says they should rest on Fridays. As head of state he slashed the number of Muslim going on pilgrimage by 50%. His driver and cook for the past 10 years plus are Christians yet some uninformed Nigerians say he is a bigot. It is a pity that some people failed to understand that PDP deliberately capitalised on the gullibility of Nigerians to paint him black. This they did in order to keep their loot and ensure that he never gets the opportunity to send them to gaol. How many Nigerians would hold the appointment of government, minister of petroleum, PTF chairman and head of state yet don’t ow ...

I may not be a PRO PRO supporter but what worries me more is why will some section on the country say its FG when its good and GED or the presidency when its on the other side of the coin? Example,FG releases Yar’Adua’s N805m severance gratuity About eight hundred and five million naira (N805m) severance gratuity of late President Umar Musa Yar’Adua has been paid by Federal Government. The cheque in respect of the amount was presented to the Governor of Katsina State, Ibrahim Shema, in Katsina by the Divisional Head in charge of North East and West of Keystone Bank, Sulaiman Maigari. Receiving the cheque, Governor Shema expressed gratitude of the government and people of the state to President Good Luck Jonathan for paying the quick payment of the severance gratuity. Earlier, Mr. Maigari said the payment was approved by the Federal Government for the next of kin of the Yar’Adua.WHY
Two collapsed bridges on Katsina-Kano road will be ready before rainy season –Gov. Ibrahim Shema.

Dr. Shema also expressed appreciation over the quality of work being executed by the contracting firm and appealed to motorists and other road users that the bridges would be opened in a couple of months.

Unlocking potentials of disabled, the poor through soft loans and financial assistance. Indeed, Katsina State has taken financial assistance and soft loans approach to building the capacity of the poor and vulnerable persons in the state. To turn things around, the government has embarked on a major effort to unlock the potentials of thousands in the state and move them from ignoble status as one of the poorest in the state to self –sufficient individuals with viable means of livelihood. The state is focused in doing this through poverty alleviation initiatives. Beyond any doubt, this approach is not a populist approach or one that distributes the largesse of government for cheap political gains. The focus is fixing the challenge that has hampered their participation in the state economy. The state Governor, Ibrahim Shema, is building a strong policy, institutional, investment and infrastructure foundations for the transformation of Katsina. Gains will not come easy but they will sure come by the grace ...

RE - LEADERSHIP'S STAND ON Governor Shema'S CHARITY ABROAD REVISITED Still writhing from the pain of the LEADERSHIP editorial titled above, the desperate regime of Governor Ibrahim Shema iis making some improvements. But these improvements were not geared towards improving the lives of the people, but were more sophisticated efforts of covering their tracks using supposedly more credible mouthpieces. From relying on "roadside media mechanics", they have upped the stakes. Now we are faced with rampaging "Academicians" in the author of the rejoinder; one Shehu Othman Adamu Masari. This development touched my innermost feelings by the sudden realisation that Masari, playing lackey to an inept system inimical to anything his "academic" calling represent was the unfortunate sheep found in the pig pen. Masari jettisoned his onerous responsibility of shaping characters and instilling discipline among a morally declining generation entrusted in his care; probably for some other benefits rather than what his calli ...
Katsina Receives Dangote Committee Katsina State Government has received the presidential committee on Flood Relief and Rehabilitation led by the national president of National Council for women society, Mrs Nkechi Mba.

He commended the Federal Government assistance of N300 million to flood victims i ...

Playing the Ostrich Towards 2015 Ibrahim Shuaibu, in this report, looks at some of the likely contenders for the presidency from the North-west zone in 2015 but presently pretending to be indifferent about the nation’s top job With about two years left for the expiration of the present dispensation, the battle for who is interested in the presidency among North-west governors in 2015 may have begun quietly. Already, some of the governors have begun to woo supporters in actualisation of their dream. While President Goodluck Jonathan is yet to make any categorical statement on his controversial re-election, governors of Jigawa and Katsina States, Sule Lamido and Ibrahim Shema, are believed to have started pushing their agenda to run in 2015 secretly. Although, Lamido has persistently said he would retire to his village on the expiration of his two terms of eight years, indications are rife that former President Olusegun Obasanjo may have approved of a presidential ticket that will pair Lamido with his Riv ...
This was sent to me by a friend i find it very interesting and decided to share it with you . OPINION There is no doubt that the recently conducted House of Assembly by-elections in Dutsi Local government area of Katsina State, apart from being a sham, was a clear indication that state governors seem unwilling to rise above selfish and parochial interest to conduct elections with minimum standards. As things stand, we can rest assured that no election process at the local government level can be free and fair with governors in charge of security and states treasuries. The recent charade in Dutsi was a clear pointer to this sad reality. The state government was determined to do things in the traditional PDP way of "do or die" and not even the respected month of Ramadan could soften their heart. Many pundits thought it would be an opportunity for the state Governor Ibrahim Shema to re-invent himself in this blessed month and do what is right, especially now that he is in his second and final term in office ...
