Kogi state is found in the central region of Nigeria. It is popularly called the Confluence State because the confluence of River Niger and River Benue is at its capital, Lokoja, which is the first administrative capital of modern-day Nigeria.

Olusegun Iselaiye Wrote This. Okay, yesterday, I reported that a 3rd term freak senator in Kogi State did some "Happy Slapping" last week... What is Happy Slapping if you may ask? Happy Slapping is a fad originating in the UK in which one or more people attack a victim for the purpose of recording the assault (commonly with a camera phone or a smartphone). Though the term usually refers to relatively minor acts of violence such as hitting or slapping the victim, more serious crimes such as the manslaughter of a pensioner and sexual assault have been classified as "happy slapping" by the BBC. If you the video of the happy slapping incident, kindly forward it to me. No one is above the law. It is very wrong for anyone, senator or not, to slap another fellow, especially the less privileged. I remember the public's reaction when Bishop David Oyedepo of Winners' Chapel slapped a child on behalf of Jesus Christ. Why is this one not generating the same or greater measure of reaction. Hypocritical society huh? De ...
MY PRAYER AND PLEA ON THE DEATH OF OUR BELOVED BROTHER, AHMED TIJANI OZUMI(TECU): Death, an inevitable story of our personal selves always being told by the remaining livings. Tijani's story have been in the rounds for the past 72 hours without any pre-knowledge of who next but, as a people with belief, we seek unto Allah to grant this our illustrious son an eternal joy in his non returnable sojourn. As a people with deep religious believes, we are expected by God to remember our deads not through tears but through prayers and asistance to those he/she might left behind. This our very young respectful brother left behind some responsibilities which in my pleas I look unto Rt. Hon. Momohjimoh Lawal, speaker, Kogi state house of assembly who have been known for his large heartedness and, Hon. Ahmed Tijani Yusuf, member representing okene/ Ogori/Magongo federal constituency who is a household name in terms of feeding the livings and remembering the deads. Late Tijani (tecu) was a brother that deserves atten ...
PROF F.S IDACHABA( OFR, MNI) Painfully just learnt of your passing away now. I mourn you a true son of igala land, a gift to humanity, a brain of the sciences, a hard worker who took Kogi State University from a glorified secondary school to one of the best in sub-saharan African, a world renoun agric economics, the pioneer V.C of the university of agriculture Makurdi Benue State Nigeria and the First Igala professor. I can go on and on but i hope we wil rise up as the present hope of igala land to fill the void you have left
This is indeed a great and irreparable lost to the entire kogites and academic community... Former vice chancellor of Kogi State University, Prof. Francis Idachaba is dead! He was indeed a classical scholar, a discplinarian and a prominent academia who was relevant to the academic community all through his life on this earth. I have personally lost a role model in academic world...
So, I learnt this morning from a virtual friend of mine of the passing of Professor Francis Sulaiman Idachaba. What a sad loss. Idachaba was one of the greatest thinkers the country produced in the last couple of decades. I got to know of Idachaba, an agricultural economist and policy maker of repute courtesy of my uncle who was his student and protege at the University of Ibadan. Whenever we met, he never allowed the occasion pass by without mentioning to me how brilliant and disciplined Professor Francis Idachaba was. As an addendum, he offered me several of the essays he wrote and even co-wrote with some other scholars. All the while, I was a high school student but already knew what the university system was all about. To cut a long story short, when it was time to go to the university, UI was naturally my first attraction. But something happened along the line. I was a provincial student who knew little beyond the traditions of my ancestry and my Yoruba race. I was shy and a little laid back. So, I f ...
Ata Igala, Ameh O Contrary to allegations that the Ata Igala, Ameh Oboni who is the president of Kogi State Council of Chiefs, instructed the people to take the spiritual bath of salt and water as protection against the Ebola Virus Disease [EVD], the royal father has denied the allegation, saying it was an attempt to tarnish his image by some mischievous elements. This was contained in a statement signed by Onoja Okpanachi, media coordinator, Ata Igala Palace and made available to THISDAY in Lokoja, which stated that the allegation was total falsehood to score cheap point now or later by some mischievous elements within and outside Kogi State. Part of the statement read, “this is to officially inform the entire Igala people home and abroad, the entire good people of Kogi State and Nigeria in particular, that the recent information concerning spiritual bath with salt and water claimed to be an instruction from His Royal Majesty [HRM] Ameh Oboni 11 as protection against the Ebola Virus is totally false a ...
hmmm wat a great lost to d igala community,kogi state,federal of nigeria,the world entirely...prof F S IDACHABA RIP
Though baffled, mystified, flabbergasted and bewildered... I speak wit a tone of distress... I salute your courage... A HERO HAS FALLEN... Is indeed is a great loss to kogi state , nigeria, africa, united states of america and the world at large. Adieu prof ... A proffessor that is larger than life. Rest in the bossom of the lord. ur legacy lives on in the heart of men! Rest in the bossom of the lord.
Professor Francis Idachaba, a world renowned agricultural economist and teacher of teachers. A man of unimpeachable character, Prof. Idachaba is a good study in hardwork, integrity, perseverance, focus and commitment to ideals. He doesn’t believe in short-cuts to wealth and can shout to high heavens that his wealth is the result of his sweat. In fact, reading through his life story, one is bound to believe that hardwork and integrity pays. “My own experience shows that even as an academic, if one works extremely hard and shuns premature politics, God will surprise one with material rewards beyond one’s wildest dreams,” he says. An Igala man born over 69 years ago in Idah, in present day Kogi State, Idachaba has been a role model for academics, especially those among them who think the only way to be comfortable in life is to leave the academic world and take public office and thereafter start dipping their fingers into the public till. Among his numerous services to the nation, he was the Head, Fe ...
The Exit Of An Irreplaceable Icon: Prof Francis S. Idachaba A LARGER PART OF THE "IGALA LIBRARY" JUST GOT BURNT. Prof. F S. Idachaba was born in Idah, Kogi State, Nigeria on 4th December, 1943. He had the B. Sc (Economics), University of Ibadan 1967; MA (Economics), University of Chicago 1969 and the Ph. D (Agric Economics) Degrees from Michigan State University in 1972. He started his academic career as an Assistant Professor in Michigan State University in 1972 and rose to become a Professor of Agricultural Economics at the University of Ibadan in 1981. He worked as lecturer, research and consultant in many universities, institutes and research centres in the USA, Canada, The Hague, the Netherlands as well as in Nigeria and many other African countries. He was the pioneer Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Nigeria for 8 years (1988-1995). Ten years later, he was invited to become the Vice- Chancellor of Kogi State University (2005-2008). During this period all of the 29 a ...

Ebola: How the Prescription of a King in Kogi State Sparked the Scramble for Salt-Water Bath
Aregbesola: A vote for progress By Tunde Oladunjoye Never in the annals of the State of Osun have we had a Governor that is very dedicated to the overall development of the State, transparent in State finances, highly innovative in governance, compassionate, and highly responsive to people's aspirations. Ogbeni Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola has brought the State of Osun from an otherwise backwater setting into national and global focus, even to the consternation of his political rivals. It is no gainsaying that a lot of people who have occupied the helms of affairs in the State at different levels in the past have literarily pinched themselves to be sure if this was the same they had presided over. From youth employment and empowerment, to child and maternal health, education, home-grown school feeding, culture and tourism, agriculture, care for aged, infrastructure and what have you, the unassuming and hardworking Governor has touched the lives of the people (indigenes and residents) of the State of Osun in a ...

ORIGIN OF THE RITUAL SALT SOLUTION Faced with threat from a dreaded disease that has neither cure nor vaccine, panicking Nigerians are turning to salt water bath recommended by a Nigerian king. Nigerians are scurrying to salt water bath for protection from Ebola Virus after a call from the ruler of the Igala Kingdom, the Attah of Igala, prescribing salt solution as a magical vaccine against the Ebola Virus to his subjects went viral. But the Nigerian government has issued a statement warning that bathing with salted baths is not a cure for the deadly Ebola Virus. Local radio and TV stations in Kogi state quoted the king, the Attah of Igala, Idakwo Michael Ameh Oboni, late Thursday, as making the prescriptions from his palace in Idah, the traditional capital of Igalaland. The king offered the purported prescription after the Nigerian government declared that the pandemic had become a national emergency. The prescription, originally intended for people of the Igala Kingdom, quickly went viral on social medi ...
EBOLA: UNDERSTANDING THE FACTS AND THE EFFORTS Kogi State Government HAS MADE IN CURTAILING THE DEADLY SCOURGE It is no longer news that the latest outbreak of Ebola disease has KILLED at least 730 PEOPLE so far in West Africa, with countries in all over the world now on the red alert, taken the necessary precautionary measures and sensitizing their citizens on the preventive measures towards the spread of the disease. Except for a reported case of one Mr. PATRICK SAWYER, a Liberian envoy and passenger who died in Lagos, there has not been any reported case of the outbreak of the disease in the country. The Ebola Virus first emerged in 1976 in an isolated village near the EBOLA VILLAGE in the Democratic Republic of CONGO and that is where it got its name from. The latest outbreak in West Africa is the worst on record. It is also the first to affect people in cities and not just remote villages. The Ebola Virus that causes a potentially lethal illness called hemorrhagic fever, renders the body’s blood ve ...

Osun 2014: INEC’s quarter final match before 2015 ￼￼ The Osun State governorship election which holds today will be the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC’s, proverbial quarter-final match before next year’s general election scheduled to hold in February 2015. As usual INEC officials are optimistic it would be an improvement on their performance at last June’s governorship election held in neighboring Ekiti State. ￼ Already the Commission has dismissed fears expressed by the All Progressives Congress, APC, that the Commission was incapable of delivering a free and credible gubernatorial poll in Osun. Akinbade, Aregbesola, Omisore and Akinwusi Responding to the allegation by the APC that the ruling PDP had cloned and distributed unclaimed 500,000 permanent voters cards for the purpose of rigging today’s poll, Mr Kayode Idowu, the Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman Prof. Attahiru Jega said: “APC has no evidence to buttress its allegation that 500,000 PVCs have been clon .. ...

Under the nose of Dr. Sani Teidi Shuaibu as the Director of Pension Administration in the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, the sum of N4.56 billion meant for pensioners vanished into thin air.

South-eastern Nigeria was one of the initial 12 states created during the Nigerian Civil War, which later broke into the present Akwa Ibom State and Cross River State. South-east became the name of one of the six geo-political zones in the country in the 1990s consisting of Abia State, Anambra State, Ebonyi State, Enugu State and Imo State. The local language in this region is Igbo. Before the British colonial government, South-eastern Nigeria was home to many ethnic groups such as the Igbo, Ijaw, Ibibo, and Efik. These groups mostly had democratic systems of government and several kingdoms, such as Nir Akwa Akpa (Calabar), Aro Confederacy and Opobo which were huge influences in the region. Abia State – God’s Own State Abia State occupies around 5,834km2, and is bordered on the north and north-east by Anambra, Enugu and Ebonyi, to the east and south-east by Cross River and Akwa Ibom, to the south by Rivers and to the west by Imo. It has heavy rainfall of about 2,400mm per year between April to October ...

My 2nd Visit to Dakingari Town: Dakingari is one of the LGAs in the land of equity ' Kebbi State', it is surrounded by LGAs lie Koko, Bagudo, Bunza Ka'oje and Jega etc; also close to the state capital with a vast land to the length eye can see and its under Gwandu emirate council. Its no doubt that Dakingari, the home of the present Governor was a not a recognised place before the assumption of Nasamu in office but today the reverse is the case. Road network, Kebbi state Polytechnic, NYSC Orientation camp, Electricity, pipe borne water, Federal Medical Centre Annex, Modern General Hospital, Police station, Secondary & primary schools, other security points and lots more. These made me to remember my village where the present Kogi State Governor came from; so disheartening that nothing reasonable done there but i later consoled myself since he has a long way to go. Let us strive hard to be great and bring up our home towns like Governor Nasamu Dakingari.

OUTRAGE AS SOLDIERS INVADE NEWSPAPER CENTRES Armed soldiers, said to be acting on “orders from above,” invaded newspaper distribution centres across the country in the early hours of Friday, seizing vans and newspapers parcels. The operation continued for most of the morning hours. Reports from virtually all state capitals and major cities in the country indicated that armed soldiers laid siege to distribution centres and to major roads, preventing media houses from conveying their newspapers to buyers. The military authorities, however, justified their action, grounding it in intelligence reports that newspaper distribution channels could be used to compromise the nation’s security. But the Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE) described the military’s action as scandalous and its excuse as unacceptable. Media vehicles conveying newspapers from Lagos and Ibadan to Warri, Abuja and other states were impounded and searched for possible hidden bombs. At the Niger Bridge in Lokoja, Kogi State, a detachmen ...
Adeniyi Kunle wrote BRIEF HISTORY OF OKUN PEOPLE Okun people are Yoruba descendants in Kogi state. Kogi is a multi ethnic state and Okun people are up to 20% of Kogi State population, smaller than the other two major completely different tribes, Igala and Ebira. Okun people spread across six local government areas in Kogi State, known as Kabba-Bunu, Yagba-West, Yagba-East, Mopa-Muro, Ìjùmú and Lokoja local government Areas. They speak varied dialects…Owé, Ìyàgbà, Ìjùmú, Bùnú and Oworo, but their language is generally called Okun, Okun has become a form of greeting among them. They understand one another to a greater extent and large numbers of them speak Yoruba. Their dialects are influenced by various factors. Such factor is that Kogi state shares boundaries with Kwara, Ondo, Ekiti, Niger, Benue, Nassarawa, Anambra, Enugu, Edo and Abuja. Also, The Nupe wars of the 19th century and interaction with the Hausas due to geographical zoning left an indelible mark on the Okun people and their dial ...

.by nwosu chika stanley to 500level students .Mining industry of Nigeria The mining of minerals in Nigeria accounts for only 0.3% of its GDP, due to the influence of its vast oilresources. The domestic mining industry is underdeveloped, leading to Nigeria having to import minerals that it could produce domestically, such as saltor iron ore. Rights to ownership of mineral resources is held by the Nigerian government, which grants titles to organizations to explore, mine, and sell mineral resources. Organized mining began in 1903 when the Mineral Survey of the Northern Protectorates was created by the British colonial government. A year later, the Mineral Survey of the Southern Protectorates was founded. By the 1940s, Nigeria was a major producer of tin, columbite, and coal. The discovery of oil in 1956 hurt the mineral extraction industries, as government and industry both began to focus on this new resource. The Nigerian Civil Warin the late 1960s led many expatriatemining experts to leave the country. [ ...

He advocated best global practice of ensuring that leadership recruitment system is strategically positioned to produce leaders with sense of responsibility to achieve the collective aspirations of citizens.

Also, the insecurity and other soc ...

DEMOCRACY REMAINS THE BEST OPTION - GOV.

He pointed out that despite the challenges confronting the nation, the current majority rule in the country remained the best option, adding that concerted efforts must be geared towards protecting our democracy.

I call on you all '' Let Us Make Okun Land Great '' OKUN people! Wake from your slumber!

WHO RENOVATED ADAMU ATTA’S HOUSE? - Placing gratitude at its right quarter The mammoth crowd of sympathizers that received the body of late Adamu Atta in Okene on the 1st May 2014 testified to the posthumous recognition that is fast becoming our societal norm. A common guilt rocking our current generation is the habit of forgetting our personalities as soon as they lost touch with the society, either due to ill health or by their final passage to the great beyond. Once out of sight, even the noblest of our men goes out of our mind. This is sad! The loss of the great values of our forefathers is now telling on our society. As a living witness of the better lifestyle of our immediate past generation, I am baffled by whatever is the basis for our departure from the life of compassion, love and concern for one another to that of neglect, total disregard and reckless abandon of even the most selfless patriots of our race. The passion, respect and excitement exhibited by the thousands of sympathizers at the A ...
Wt shall it become dt kingkong wil be king in kogi state?
Kogi State Governor Idris Wada said yesterday that he sacked the chairman of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) Usman Jibrin and other members of the board due to mismanagement and dishonesty. Governor Wada, who spoke during an interaction with journalists to mark Democracy Day, said he had to sack the SUBEB management “because their cup was full”. “We gave them an opportunity to perform but they failed. It is just an admission of lack of mismanagement and dishonesty. Severally, I called them and asked questions about their performance and told them to change due to complaints but they refused. One of the things I did was to give the SUBEB chairman time. I asked him to give me his own deadline to clear all outstanding salaries, given the facilities at SUBEB’s disposal and he said he would clear them before Easter. I then told him that I will hold him responsible if he failed and he said I should trust him. But after that, I was still getting complaints that he was owing January sala ...

Some of us even blame him for their domestic misfortunes failing to know that we have all failed in our various capacity to help our community and Country. Like the emperor who fiddled while rome burned, we have allowed a foreseeable and avoidable tragedy. Let's ask ourselves sincerely, In what way have we render selfless service to develop our immediate community and the society at large? In fact, what is our relevance to our community and country? This is the picture of dilapitated Saint Andrews school in Okene, Kogi state. It's an alma mater of many prominent men in Nigeria today.

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. On 13 February 1976, the Idah/Dekina part of the state was carved out and merged with a part of the then Benue/Plateau State to form Benue State. On 27 August 1991, five local government areas, namely Oyi, Yagba, Okene, Okehi and Kogi were also excised to form part of the new Kogi State, while a sixth, Borgu Local Government Area, was merged with Niger State.

(ESAN GBI GBE) It is believed by many historians that the name 'Esan' (originally, 'E san fia') owes its origin to Bini (meaning, 'they have fled' or 'they jumped away'). 'Ishan' is an Anglicized form of 'Esan', the result of colonial Britain's inability to properly pronounce the name of this ethnic group. It is believed that similar corruption has affected such Esan names as ubhẹkhẹ (now 'obeche' tree), uloko (now 'iroko' tree), Abhuluimẹn (now 'Aburime'), etc. Efforts have however been made to return to status quo ante. For academic purpose, Esan refers to the ethnic group that occupies central Edo State; (plural unchanged) a person or the people collectively from this ethnic group; the language of these people which, linguistically, is of the Kwa subdivision of the Niger-Congo language family; something of, related to, or having Esan origin e.g. uro Esan (=Esan language), otọ Esan (=Esan land), ọghẹdẹ Esan (=Esan banana). History A total of thirty four kingdoms (large villages/townships r ...
