France aiding Boko Haram, Minister alleges MINISTER of National Planning, Dr Abubakar Sulaiman, has blamed continued onslaught of Boko Haram terrorists on Nigeria on alleged animosity the country shares with Francophone West African countries. Speaking with journalists in Ilorin, Kwara State capital, at the weekend, the minister, who said Nigeria should revisit its Francophone policy, added that the issue of Boko Haram insurgency was political and, fundamentally, military. “First, the issue of terrorism is global, regional and sub-regional. Second, the terrorism we have in Nigeria has internal and external dimensions to it. Some of the terrorists are not just Nigerians; they are not operating from Nigeria; they are operating from Nigerian borders and they have some back up from neighbouring countries. “When you look at Nigeria’s history, we have been consistent in the kind of animosity we share with the Francophone West African countries. Nigeria should revisit, for instance, its francophone policy. ...

Profile of Executive Governor of Kwara State, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed His Excellency, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed, the 6th Executive Governor of Kwara State, brings to the position composite experience in the academia, banking and the public sector. Given this rich experience and high-calibre training, Governor Ahmed’s focus on high-performance since assuming office is inevitable. Indeed, Alhaji Ahmed's track record of achievements has established him as an expert in strategic planning and resource optimisation. Governor Ahmed’s stint in governance started in 2003 when, on the back of a highly-successful banking career, he was appointed pioneer Commissioner for Finance in the Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki administration. During a six-year period, Governor Ahmed ensured computerization of the Treasury to reduce incidences of expenditure leakage. He ensured prudent management of state resources which twice earned the State Government excellent rating by the Fitch Rating International (An International Rating . ...
Police Warn Kwara PDP Governorship Aspirants Against Violence The Kwara State police command has revealed plans by some people within the party to disrupt the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) December 8 governorship primaries. Speaking at a meeting with the state PDP leaders and governorship aspirants in Ilorin, Kwara State capital, on Friday, the state police commissioner, Alhaji Salihu Garba, said the act would not be tolerated. The police boss, who complained of proliferation of arms and ammunition and use of hoodlums by politicians in the state, said, “we as security agents shall ward off any aggression from any persons or quarters. “Any aspirant linked to such unwholesome act or where such is traced to any aspirant, he will be dealt with according to existing laws”, he said. The police commissioner also advised politicians to always toe the path of law and eschew all acts of violence, adding that there would be no sacred cow. “Whatever you do should be within the ambit of the law.

SHE CAN BE GOVERNOR. The gubernatorial ambition of Senator Gbemisola Saraki got a major boost at the weekend as a top Muslim cleric based in Ilorin declared that a woman can be elected as a state governor. Against popular held opinion among Muslim faithful in Kwara State, the chief Imam of Al-Adabiyya Kamaliyya Central mosque, Foma, Ilorin, Alhaji Shuaib AbdulRafiu,said that women can aspire and occupy political positions to effect good governance. He said Islam as a religion does not discriminate against women in political appointments. Delivering his final sermon in a three-part lecture on Islamic views on Muslim women eligibility for political offices, AbdulRafiu said Islam does not oppose it. He explained that it is only in a Caliphate society where a Muslim religious leader in the form of a Khalifa is the head that a woman could not aspire or occupy political position, adding that women could hold governorship, presidential or other political positions in any secular society like Nigeria. The cleric, ...

The Kwara State Government has lodged a formal complaint to the Commissioner of Police, Kwara State Command about “some miscreants”, allegedly sponsored by some Peoples Democratic Party leaders in Kaiama Local Government Area, who attacked Government Abdulfatah Ahmed’s convoy Tuesday this week.

NAGERIAN ELECTION WHO DESERVE 9JA General Muhammadu Buhari As parties plot strategies to maintain regional strongholds By Chuks Okocha Though, formal campaigns for next year’s general election are yet to begin, the race for the presidential tickets of the major political parties is certainly hotting up. The parties are also exploring possible permutations that would give them political advantage in the various geopolitical zones. While President Goodluck Jonathan may not have any strong challenger for the Peoples Democratic Party presidential ticket, in the All Progressives Congress, it looks set to be a four horse race between former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari; former Vice President Atiku Abubakar; former governor of Kwara State, Senator Bukola Saraki; and Kano State Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso. Each of the aspirants has some things going for him in the race, and downsides, too. This is inspite of the fact that Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, yesterday declared his intention to run for t ...

PROFESSOR SHUAIB OBA ABDULRAHEEM: THE LONG SEARCHING SOLUTION TO OUR PROBLEMS IN KWARA It is 42 years now After Walter Rodney published a book " How Europeans underdeveloped Africa" yet Africa is in search of development. Had it been Rodney is still alive, he would have develop a different view point by changing the tittle of his book to " How Africans underdeveloped africa. We have known that our leaders are our problem and not Europeans as it was said by Rodney. Kwara state is not going along with other states in the country in terms of development and we should have no one to blame but ourselves. We prefer to celebrate thieves than public spirited politicians. We prefer honouring political jobbers to a well discipline and committed people that will serve us. Our government has failed woefully and their brutal sit-tight phenomenon have made it very difficult or impossible to replaced them. Our government keep saying "it is good here" while larger percentage of kwarans are in deep suffering, as if incre ...

DR DEBORAH NELSON WRITES TO BUHARI: Open Letter to General Buhari; On 2015 Presidential Election 2014-11-18 07:52:23 1. Majority of politicians who encourage you to re-contest in 2015 do not share in your vision. Most of them, especially Hausa Fulani politicians, want to ride on your popularity to victory politically. Today, even Mallam El Rufai who insulted you and described you as a ‘perpetually unelectable’ politician in 2010 is now singing your praises. So, what has changed between then and now other than El Rufai’s selfish desire to use you to achieve his political ambition? Just take a look at his campaign posters in Kaduna and judge for yourself. This was the same reason that led to massive influx of politicians, mostly Hausa Fulani politicians into CPC in 2011. They know that without you, they are politically dead; hence, they will continue to flatter you, insult your perceived political opponents and pretend to support you in order to ensure your continuous participation in partisan politi ...
Is it not a fact that since the renegades in PDP ported to APC, the problems in PDP have abetted, and resurfaced in APC? Should our anger, energies and convoluted theories, be centered on the name "PDP", or the individual pilots of the Party, who are now landlords in APC? How many of the old brigade are still left in PDP??? Okay let's go there:- Pa Olusegun Obasanjo, one time military dictator, and former president under PDP, is now the navigator of APC. Reason: he was not allowed to rule from Ota, and APC must have promised that. His former estranged VP, Alhaji Atiku, is now a progressing presidential Aspirant. APC is now the platform. His boy, Rotimi Amaechi, has transformed from 'K' Leg while in PDP, to a straight Legged man, all on his way to APC...he is now a progressive- spirit filled, tongue talking and constitution quoting. Kwankwaso, a PDP governor for many years, is now progressively progressing as APC presidential hopeful . Nyako, the hunter turned hunted, had to swap with his fine brother , Ge ...

Kwara : The Past,The Present. A Guide To The Future! SPORT... Have you been to the Kwara Stadium Indoor Sports Hall lately ?. An edifice that was decades ago one of the best facility in the country. This hall has the capacity to host several indoor sporting events such as Basket Ball,Volley Ball,Hand Ball,Badminton and Table Tennis. It also serves as venues for some Social and Educational Events such as Wedding Receptions,Film Shows,Book Launch,Debate Contests and Seminars. It WAS a multipurpose edifice. Fully air-conditioned,equipped with a media gallery and public address system. Polished wooden sports floor,fully rugged spectator arena furnished with collapsible plastic seats and cushioned upholstery in the VIP section. Alas !!! An edifice that was once a pride of our dear state is in a VERY SORRY state. It has suffered great neglect from a government that has a "legacy" of eroding our past,neglecting our present and giving us no future hope while claiming "it is good here".

On September 27, 1954 David Olaniyi Oyedepo was born in Osogbo, Nigeria, but is a native of Omu-Aran, Kwara State, Nigeria. He was raised in a mixed religious family His father, Ibrahim, was a Muslim healer. His mother, Dorcas, was a member of the Eternal Order of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement (C&S), a branch of the Aladura movement in Nigeria. He was raised by his grandmother in Osogbo, who introduced him to the virtues of Christian life via early morning prayers which she attended with him. She also taught him the importance of tithing. David was born again in 1969, through the influence of his teacher, Betty Lasher, who took special interest in him during his high school days. He studied architecture at Kwara State Polytechnic and worked briefly with the Federal Ministry of Housing in Ilorin before resigning to concentrate on missionary work. Oyedepo received a Ph.D. in Human Development from Honolulu University, Hawaii, United States.[7] Bishop David claimed to have received a mandate from God th ...
YOU WANT TO BE GREAT SPIRITUALLY? READ THIS. Founder of Christ Apostolic Church (Aladura) The story of Apostle Joseph Ayodele Babalola, his life and work can be thus classified. His unprecedented Oke-Oye Revival gave birth to what is now known as the Christ Apostolic Church (C.A.C.), a Nigerian indigenous church. His Background Joseph Ayodele Babalola was born on April 25, 1904 to David Rotimi and Madam Marta Talabi who belonged to the Anglican Church.

Editor, Guardian Newspaper, Lagos Re: Don’t Inflame Passion With Hijab I am writing to address at least one of the many misconceptions that Dr. Pius Oyeniran Abioje, the current acting head of Department of Religions at the University of Ilorin, Kwara State presented as facts in the Guardian newspaper of 31st of October, 2014 under the title "Don’t inflame passion with hijab". Dr Pius Abioje's letter to the Guardian, like many before it, reeks of so much criminal ignorance which I have generously referred to as misconceptions, that if the iconoclast is left unchallenged firstly by the greater minds from the university itself, the university may be put into some disrepute. In his latest attack on organised religions, Dr Abioje gave a Panglossian summary of the African Traditional Religion (ATR) as a noble religion which "does not crave for adherents and property acquisition". Dr Abioje reserves his right to engage in this awful fantasy, but then shooting from the hips, he immediately went off in the wr ...
WHEN KWARA TOOK CENTRE STAGE IN PARIS FOR a visitor, the sights of Paris, the French capital, are a pleasure to behold. Ancient architecture competes with modern structures and spectacular aesthetics to earn Paris its reputation as one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. However, that was the last thing on the mind of the governor of Kwara State, Dr Abdulfatah Ahmed, as he stepped into Paris on a cold October 7 morning. Rather, the Executive Governor of Kwara State was focused on the Kwara State Community Health Insurance Scheme (KCHIS) which had been nominated along with nine other development initiatives for the first Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Development Assistance Committee (DAC) Award for taking development initiatives to scale. In the run up to the event, Erik Solheim, Chair of DAC, said although extreme poverty had been halved and progress made on MDG Goals, more innovative solutions needed to be taken to scale if “we are to end poverty, green our economies and ...

TEXT OF THE PRESS CONFERENCE ADDRESSED BY THE JOINT MUSLIM FORUM (JMF) ON THE RULING ON HIJAB AND THE DEMAND OF LAGOS CHRISTIANS FOR A CHRISTIAN GOVERNOR HELD AT THE RAHMAT ISLAMIYAH HALL, IKEJA, ON THURSDAY, 23RD OCTOBER, 2014 Distinguished guests, leaders of Islamic organisations present, Brothers and Sisters in Islam, Gentlemen of the press, As-Salaam Alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu. I welcome you to this press briefing on behalf of the Joint Muslim Forum (JMF). JMF is a Muslim, non-governmental and non-profit organization with no political affiliations but serves as a platform for several well-meaning and progressive Muslim Organizations in Lagos State. You are all aware of the agitation of Muslims in the South-West for their female children to be allowed to use hijab in public schools. This is a yearning propelled by religious obligation as the Qur’an commands all female Muslims to use hijab. As part of the background, we must also remind you of the inhuman treatments meted out to female Musl ...

Could they both lose out? BY DEMOLA AKINYEMI These are not the best of times for Senator Gbemisola Ruqqayat Saraki, GRS as she is fondly called by her admirers. GRS is still unrelenting in the grudge war with Brother Bukola over the latter’s leading role in stopping her gubernatorial pursuit in 2011. Besides fighting Bukola, she is now engaged with her male counterparts in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for supremacy in the opposition party. Despite her political acumen, her name is becoming a rallying point for all those who claim that it is time to see the back of the Sarakis in Kwara State. It was no surprise that when she was slated for ministerial appointment that almost all senior PDP ...
Little Giant Ladders
As much as Nigerian leaders call for and promote unity of our country, Southern and Northern elders still would often exchange bitter words. Earlier, Naij.com has posted an opinion by our contributor Hussain Obaro who warned Southers leaders against presenting the North in the wrong light and antagonizing Nigerians. Today, Dr. Deborah Nelson, writing from Ilorin, Kwara State, appeals to the Northern elders and voices her own concerns. “1. Northern elders! During the Yar’Adua administration, militants’ activities in the Niger Delta led to substantial drop in crude oil production. To restore normalcy to the region, Niger Delta elders, led by the then-Vice President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, went into the creeks and persuaded the militants to embrace peace. Similarly, when activities of the OPC were becoming a threat to national security, Yoruba elders met with the OPC members and persuaded them to embrace peace. “But in the North, instead of adopting similar measures to restore peace to the region, yo ...
APC GOVERNORS BACK CONSENSUS CANDIDACY OCTOBER 23, 2014 BY JOHN ALECHENU AND SUCCESS NWOGU The Progressives Governors’ Forum on Wednesday declared its support for consensus method of choosing presidential and other candidates for the All Progressives Congress. The PGF Chairman, Rochas Okorocha, who announced this to journalists after the forum’s meeting in Ilorin, Kwara State on Wednesday, added that neither the forum nor the party had adopted any candidate for the 2015 general elections. He said the forum which comprises APC governors was in support of consensus method of choosing candidates so long as there would be no imposition of anyone on members of the party. Okorocha, who is also the governor of Imo State, added that in the event of a consensus not being reached, the APC could go for credible and transparent primaries. The governor said, “On consensus, our forum is in full support of consensus as one of the ways to produce our presidential candidate or any candidate in the party for as lo .. ...

Governor Ahmed CHARGES MILITARY TO STAY CLEAR OF POLITICS The Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, has charged the military to insulate itself from political manipulation and resist temptation to descend into the political arena as this could truncate the country’s nascent democracy. The governor stated this when participants of course 23 of the National Defence College, Abuja, on Geo-Strategic Study tour of Kwara State, paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Ilorin. “Let me commend the Nigerian military for its appreciable role in nation building, especially by protecting Nigeria from external aggression and internal unrest,” Dr. Ahmed said. “ While it is true that the country is going through very difficult times, especially in parts of the country caught in the grip of insurgency, the military must continue to live up to its reputation as one of Africa’s best.” The governor said it was incumbent on all Nigerians to support the officers and men of the armed forces for keeping ...

APC Will Sweep 2015 Polls – Jibrin Adesuwa Tsan — Sep 28, 2014 | Leave a comment Hon Abdulmumin Jibrin is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and chairman, House Committee on Finance. In this interview with ADESUWA TSAN, he speaks on why Buhari should not contest in 2015 elections, fate of 37 lawmakers that defected to APC from PDP, and other topical issues Your seat in the House is still shaky because there is a pending case seeking to declare it vacant, are you not worried by that? Of course, I know that nobody’s seat will be declared vacant. I know that the Speaker came under tremendous pressure from above to declare our seats vacant. Constitutionally, that cannot be. The law allows us to do what we did. The PDP was divided, balkanised, there was a clear case of factions and that was why we left. There is a court judgement now from Kwara State which has set a precedent. The judgement is enough to lay the matter to rest. It is important to commend the Speaker for standing on the side o ...

Kwara ex-Gov Adebayo loses wife Wife of the Second Republic governor of Kwara State, Cornelius Adebayo, Funmilayo, is dead. The wife reportedly died on Thursday at an Abuja hospital after a protracted illness. Meanwhile, a former governor of the state, Bukola Saraki, has described her death as sad loss to the state. Saraki in a statement signed by his media aide, Bamikole Omishore, said the state has lost a virtuous and hard-working woman who supported her husband to achieve greatness as a profound politician, nationalist and a teacher. He stated: “This is indeed a sad development for us all, I can only imagine the void that her passing away will create for her husband, the children and the entire family.” “No doubt, it’s a trying period for everyone who has had one form of contact or the other with her, her immediate family and close associates. But I hope that the family, especially, will draw strength from the knowledge that the thoughts and prayers of Kwarans and indeed Nigerians are with the ...

MY ARREST IS LIKE A DREAM - SUSPECT A notorious armed robber, Egun George, who snatched N500,000 from the driver of the wife of former governor of Oyo State, Mrs Oluwakemi Alao-Akala, killed him after trailing him from a bank, has confessed to have belonged to a cult group while he was a student of the Polytechnic, Ibadan, and that he started using guns then. The suspected armed robber, who disclosed this after his arrest on Tuesday, also said he never believed that he could be arrested as he was very careful in evading the police. He described the way he was arrested by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), Ibadan, as a dream that he would have liked to wake up from. George was described as a notorious armed robber who was using motorcycles to terrorise Ibadan while moving about the city to *** vehicles and rob bank customers. It was gathered on Sunday that in an operation that led to his eventual arrest, George's gang had trailed one Mr Oshodi to his house on July 11, 2014, at Challenge area of Ibad .. ...

The Gospel According To Tom Ikimi - by Nigerians, let me start by quickly stating my admiration for the person and personality of Chief Tom Ikimi. As a celebrity reporter, Ikimi is every journalist’s dream. He’s charismatic, charming, lively, debonair, suave, oratorical, worldly, creative, affable and absolutely political. I’ve had the privilege of spending time with him at home and abroad and found him very warm and affectionate. Despite our sharp political differences in those days when I used to visit him, he never appeared an intolerant soul. He was too cosmopolitan to disallow a healthy debate. He never denied being overly conservative or adroitly capitalistic in nature. Chief Ikimi could not have been otherwise. He’s a very successful architect. His profession thrives on uncommon creativity and some splash of eccentricity. I’m not sure if he still puffs his Havana cigars but I certainly recollect the vivid picture of the cigar-chewing fashionista. I was surprised when he sauntered from th ...

Why Africa could not contain Ebola - Tomori Virologist and Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists, Prof. Oyewale Tomori said yesterday that Nigeria would have been able to contain the spread of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) with functional laboratories. The absence of well-equipped laboratories, he said, hampers Nigerian scientists from finding cures for diseases, including the EVD outbreak which he described as a disaster. He stated this during a public lecture on 'Taming the Vicious Ebola Disaster: How prepared is Africa,' organised by the Kwara State University. Tomori, who is a World Health Organisation (WHO), consultant said the Ebola virus has become a disaster that must be tackled by all Nigerians. He said the disease if not contained, would destroy the foundation of the country's economy, social structure and orderly development as it is happening in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. The WHO consultant said African countries could not find a solution to Ebola disease because of lack of functi ...
