Good day! Here are 10 things you need to know today: 17th Aug, 2014 1. A renowned Politician and former Governor of Kwara State, Dr. Bukola Saraki, on Friday (15th August, 2014) has defiantly predicted a ‘landslide victory’ for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 elections. Saraki, who hails from an affluent Political background in Kwara State followed a long list of Political heavyweights who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) to the APC earlier this year. Since joining the APC, many stakeholders within the party have favoured him to be the party’s candidate at the Presidential election holding next year as he has been viewed as a ‘neutral’ Politician. He stated that the victory of APC at the recent governorship election in Osun State has changed the political dimension in Nigeria and placed the APC back on the map after the party’s failure at the governorship election in Ekiti State 2.

Why Ebola differs from other viruses The Ebola Virus Disease is the enemy knocking at the door of many West African countries and its effects are fast spreading. Unlike other viruses, such as the Hepatitis A, B,C, which can stay in the body fluids of an infected person for 15 years without any symptoms, the Ebola virus, which symptoms include bleeding from the mouth and *** can kill its victims within days . A professor of Epidemiology and Community Health Sci­ence, University of Ilorin, Kwara State, Tanimola Akande, describes the Ebola virus, which is ravaging Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia and has killed a nurse in Nigeria, as the biggest health challenge facing the sub region at present. Akande says that its mode of transmission is a major reason why it is deadlier than most viruses. He says, “That Ebola has no cure is not the reason why it is deadly.HIV also has no cure, yet it does not kill all its victims, if it is properly managed. Ebola is deadlier because it is easy to contract; it is in a . ...

Nigeria has never had it so bad. Seven months to a presidential election, the aspirants are not known. The political atmosphere is not charged or astir. Consultations, if any, are done in low and hushed tones. The electorates do not know what to expect from those who will want to govern them because nothing has been said or promised. There is no flurry of activities in the political parties especially the opposition parties that should keep the ruling party on its toes. Does it mean the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and President Goodluck Jonathan are doing well? If not, who is going to stop them? What will the person or party do differently for Nigeria and Nigerians? There is loud silence in the polity less than three months to the beginning of presidential primaries. Does it mean that the political class and would-be candidates are taking the electorates for granted? It has not always been like this. Several months before the April 21, 2007 presidential polls won by late President Umaru Musa Yar ...

2015: Gladiators spoiling for war in Kwara old Kwara State is about to witness what some political analysts in the country have described as a drama at its best come the 2015 elections. The political dynasty of the state, which is one of the states in the North-Central, was firmly in the grip of the late Second Republic Senate Leader, Dr Olusola Saraki, until his demise on November 14, 2012. It was customary for the philanthropist to say during his life te that the keys to the Ahmadu Bello Way Government House, the seat of power, were in his pocket. And he gave it to whomsoever he decided. However, an interesting political history was recorded in the 2011 election, when the deceased could not give the keys to his daughter, Gbemisola, because his son, Dr. Bukola Saraki, who was the then governor, opposed the move, which set up a bitter political rivalry that was won by his son in the election. Meanwhile, one of the interesting angles about the battle for the soul of Kwara in 2015 is the fact that most of t ...

Abubakar Bukola Saraki, ABS said, “It is very unfortunate and I think we are seven months to the end of the tenure. We all need to look at the bigger picture, look at the stability of our democracy. After Adamawa, I think Nasarawa State governor is being served with impeachment notice and three other states are going to be served. “The bigger issue in this country now is the issue of security, and poverty.

BREAKING NEWS: Five hospilised after eating Saraki Ramadan gift = Information reaching Kwara Site indicates that not less than five poor Kwarans have been rushed to the hospital after allegedly consuming rice distributed by a erstwhile Governor of Kwara state and senator for Kwara Central District, Dr. Bukola Saraki. It is not yet clear if the food item contains poisonous substance or it was just an act of God.

***Grassroot politics*** This piece is not intended as another commentary on the Ekiti election. That election, as it is, has already had its fair share of analysis from pundits, professors, politicians and putterers. This is more of contemplation on the terminology of “grass-roots politics,” a phrase that has been brandished like the sword of vengeance by the supporters of Governor-elect Ayodele Fayose, to explain his success at the polls. I believe there is so much taken for granted in their deployment of the term. My prior understanding of grass-roots politics or activism is that it is an anti-establishment movement, organic in nature, community-based, and functions in a bottom-up manner. (A caveat: I acknowledge that in the Nigerian context, certain delineation can be hard to make. For instance, what, really, will be an anti-establishment choice in a selection that involves the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress?) Yet, Fayose’s victory and the constant refrain of “grass ...

They are: 1. Alayeluwa Oba Okunade Sijuwade, the Oòni of Ifè. 2. Alayeluwa Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi, the Aláàfin of Òyó. 3. Chief Olusegun Obasanjo 4. Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. The Oba of Benin, the Sòún of Ògbómòsó, the Awùjalè of Ìjèbú, the Aláké of Ègbá, the Oba of Èkó, the Òsemàwé of Ondó and so on, are also very important. If the Yoruba Youths shun partisan politics, and use "organized violence" to lobby the four individuals until they accept Oduduwa People's Republic as the best option for the Yoruba nation, we can then form two opposing political camps. The progressives camp will come under Tinubu's party while the conservatives camp will be under Obasanjo's party. Next would be to divide Lagos, Oyo, Ondo, Osun, Ogun, Ekiti, parts of Kwara, Kogi, Edo and Delta states into the fol ...

Kwara :What is good here in Kwara since Saraki is been leading? When a product is new in the market,from a marketer's point of view,it needs advertisement to make it acceptable to the public to generate sales. So also when a product is doing badly in the market in terms of sales,it is often re branded and given an aggressive advertisement in order to generate the targeted income and stay afloat in a competitive market. In effect,when the Kwara State Government came up with a logo for the state and jingles ran on both the print and electronic media with the slogan "It Is Good Here". It was a clear indication that Kwara is a failed state that needs re branding and aggressive advertisement to make it sell! How did we get here ? A state that prides itself as the custodian of several companies,industries and entrepreneur in the past.

EMMANUEL TV IS MY LIGHTNING SHIELD! Mr Yemi Ajayi and his wife came to The SCOAN from Kwara State in northern Nigeria for the first time to give this testimony. They are viewers of Emmanuel TV. In July, 2013, they were at home watching Emmanuel TV and something happened. It started raining and they heard a great noise. They were about 21 people in the house and there was a loud thunder storm nearby. Lightning burst into the room through the window and hovered over them, then shot to the television where they were watching Emmanuel TV, circled the screen and left in a flash as quickly as it had come. Everyone in the room started to praise God for the miracle of saving them from a lightning strike which in that area had been killing people. Speaking of their miraculous escape, Mr Ajayi said of Prophet T.B. Joshua, “We might see him as a human being with a modest stature but the mighty power of God inside him is of immeasurable size!” Prophet T.B. Joshua said that the lightning had been sent by evil forc ...

Soaring school fees and gale of protests in Nigerian varsities for the University of Ilorin, Kwara State, payment for ICT tablets, in addition to the tuition payable by fresh students, introduced last year by the school was said to have surprised many parents and wards. Their worry was said to be connected to finances that come with admission of students. Some of the parents reportedly saw no option but to pay the money in view of the joy of securing admission for their wards. Meanwhile, the authorities of the university explained that the institution had not actually increased its tuition in recent time. Speaking with the Saturday Tribune in Ilorin, the Deputy Director of Information of the institution, Alhaji Kunle Akogun, said there was nothing like arbitrary increase in tuition, adding that first-year students were only asked to pay N20, 000 for the ICT tablets. The institution's image maker, who said the computer tablets had since been distributed to the students to aid their learning, said that the ...

Farmers told to seek expert advice call has gone to farmers in the country to always seek expert advice before procuring seeds in order to avoid adulteration and crop failure which reduce profit, Zonal Manager of Kwara State Agriculture Development Project (Zone B), Mr. Anthony Okulaja,has said. Speaking in a chat with newsmen in Ilorin,the Kwara State capital, Okulaja noted that many farmers were fond of rushing to buy seeds for planting without consulting experts thereby ending up buying adulterated seeds all in the attempt of cutting costs. He said: "Many farmers do not buy improved seeds but instead opt for adulterated seeds or grains harvested from their previous year's farming forgetting that those ones break down back to their ancestral family as time goes on through a process called segregation. "The peak is only at the first or second year after which they decline drastically but our farmers tend to overlook that and still prefer to use that at their own risk," he said. Okulaja observed that some ...

NURHI rehabilitates family planning clinic in Offa family planning initiative, funded by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Nigerian Urban Health Initiative (NURHI), has rehabilitated and equipped the family planning unit of Child Welfare Clinic, Olomowewe community, Offa, Kwara state.

Six northern governors namely: Alhaji Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State; Alhaji Magatakarda Wamako of Sokoto State; Alhaji Muazu Babangida Aliyu of Niger State; Alhaji Sule Lamido of Jigawa State; Alhaji Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State and Alhaji Abdufattah Ahmed of Kwara State banded together with Rivers State Rotimi Amaechi to demand that the sitting President, Goodluck Jonathan, should undertake not to partake in the forthcoming 2015 Presidential Election. The refusal of the President to give such an undertaking led to an orchestrated crisis in the PDP, and led to the willful abandonment of the party by five of the aforementioned governors. Members of the National Assembly, states houses of assembly and other party faithfuls in those states also exited PDP. Such is the desperation with which northern Muslims want power at the center in Nigeria. -Middle Belt Dialogue.

Listen to the tales of prosperity in Kwara State @ .
The Nupe, traditionally called the Tapa by the neighbouring Yoruba, are an ethnic group located primarily in the Middle Belt and northern Nigeria, and are the dominant group in Niger and an important minority in Kwara State. History The Nupe trace their origin to Tsoede who fled the court of Idah and established a loose confederation of towns along the Niger in the 15th century. The proximity of Nupe to the Yoruba Igbomina people in the south and to the Yoruba Oyo people in the southwest led to cross-fertilization of cultural influences through trade and conflicts over the centuries. It is said that the famous Yoruba oba or king, Shango (also known as Jakuta) who was once an Alaafin of Oyo before being deified following his death, was the son of a Nupe (Tapa) woman. Many Nupe were converted to Islam at the end of the eighteenth century by Mallam Dendo, a wandering preacher, and were incorporated into the Fulani Empire established by the Jihad led by Usman dan Fodio after 1806. However, the traditions of N ...

President Jonathan Impounds Governor Amaechi’s Jet In Kano For His Role In The Appointment Of Lamido Sanusi As The Emir Of Kano Posted: Jun, 08 2014, 6:06PM Governor Rotimi Amaechi By Saharareporters, New York Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan tonight ordered Nigerian aviation authorities to prevent the jet carrying Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi from leaving the Kano International Airport grounded after security agencies decided that Mr. Amaechi, former Lagos Governor, Bola Tinubu, ex-governor of Kwara State, Bukola Saraki and a former governor of Gombe state and now Senator, Danjuma Goje were instrumental to pressurizing Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano to ratify ousted CBN Governor Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the new Emir of Kano. The Bombardier aircraft that was recently released to the governor could not leave the airport as aviation agencies claimed there was an order from above to stop night flights out of the Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport in Kano. Governor Amaechi reportedly lef ...
Kwara renovates five hospitals Federal Government-owned University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) which was sited behind the old campus of the university along Lagos Road in the heart of Ilorin has relocated to its permanent site on the outskirts of the capital at Ilorin-Jebba expressway, Oke Oyi. The relocation of the hospital was received with mixed feelings as it forced many patients from Ilorin to travel long kilometres to get to the hospital. However, the Kwara State Government recently decided to turn the old UITH to a General Hospital by renovating, re-modelling and equipping the hospital to a status befitting of a General Hospital apparently to ease access to health care delivery within the metropolis. The hospital which has begun operation alongside four others spread across the three senatorial districts in the Central, North and South has, according to the government, been equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. The other general hospitals are located in Share in Ifelodun Local Governmen ...
Police to deploy 2,000 officers for Abdulsalami's Kwara visit The Kwara State Police Commissioner, Mr. Ambrose Aisabo, has said that no fewer than 2,000 police officers would be deployed for the visit of a former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar to Kwara State on Tuesday. Abubakar is scheduled to inaugurate the newly renovated and remolded Ilorin General Hospital on Tuesday.

"2,000 police officers are to be deployed in the state. We are putting into consideration all the security situations in the country. We are leaving no stone unturned, though Kwara is a peaceful state," Aisabo said. Also the Public Relations of Officer of the Kwara State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, Mr. Abdulkadir Olanrewaju, said the command would deploy no fewer than 300 of its personnel for the visit.

**Islam Does Not Permit Me To Marry More Than One Wife—Femi Adebayo** Yoruba actor, Femi Adebayo, has disclosed that fame has made him lost his privacy as he can no longer do things again because people now look up to him and as such, would not want to let his fans down. According to the actor, everybody just wants to talk about you in any way they can and as such, he just has to be careful. ‘They speculated that I was having issues with my wife, but the truth is, we are cool,’ he said. The actor also explained that he was not surprised at the situation of things since his father had already warned him about such things. Femi thanked the talebearers for stirring up rumour about him which he describes as a means of showing how relevant he is, adding that he would not be able to manage more than one wife because of his religion. Presently, the actor who just finished a project for the Kwara State Government on cancer awareness, has disclosed that he and some of his friends are working on a foundation ...
Development is spread throughout Kwara -Akorede Senior Special Assistant to Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State on Media and Communication, Dr Muideen Akorede, speaks on current issues relating to the nation's democracy, development, 2015 general election and other issues. BIOLA AZEEZ brings excerpts: There is insinuation that most development projects of the present government are being concentrated in the Kwara Central senatorial district, especially Ilorin, the state capital. How do you react to this? That perception is limited to the opposition elements in the PDP who are trying to stir discontent in the state. Because anybody who is a keen follower of what government has done will know that Governor Ahmed has ensured equity in the distribution of projects. The most obvious example is the new five general hospitals that have been done. Three of them are in Kwara South, that is Offa, Share and Omu Aran. Only one is in Kwara Central and one is in Kwara North. At that level, it is not true. If you g ...
The retired Director of Naval Education puns on his initials. Quite appropriately too, for Commodore Sunny Emmanuel Akintomide (SEA) Olamilokun, an Ijesha man, born in Ilofa, Kwara State, it has indeed been quite a journey from the hinterland to the coast. MARY OGEDENGBE examines his odyssey Commodore Sunny Emmanuel Akintomide His background and upbringing is pan-Nigerian. Born in Kwara State of Ijesha extraction, Sunny Olamilokun was educated at the venerable Ilesha Grammar School which was top notch at the time, after which he attended the University of Lagos (UNILAG). During the mandatory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), he served in the old Bendel State. The journey to the coast arose out of admiration for the uniform. Attending a convocation at UNILAG, he was smitten as an impressionable young man when he observed a naval officer in the compound. It was a sea change ( ...
By Olorunfemi Akeeb Ishola Three well-worn parties in Nigeria, the ACN, CPC and a wing of the APGA, had a makeover; refashioning themselves as the APC (All Progressives Congress). But the question remains: what exactly is progressive about this new alliance? Is it not like the cosmetic name-changing of NEPA to PHCN with no improvement in electricity? Regressive alliance: Rather than being a progressive party, the APC is regressive. Indeed, it is a cruel joke to describe it as progressive. A party led by a former military dictator and a civilian dictator cannot be progressive. Can any right-thinking person actually mistake Buhari for a progressive? Would a progressive truncate a democratic government? Would a progressive muzzle the press? Would a progressive arrest and jail people without trial? Would a progressive call for rioting and bloodletting if he loses an election? Certainly not! Whatever Buhari might be, he is not progressive. Instead, he is a dyed-in-the-wool antediluvian politician. ...
ATHAN CONTINUES ABACHA's DAY OF TYRANNY FOR THE SECOND DAY AS SOLDIERS INVADE NEWSPAPERS DISTRIBUTION CENTRE AGAIN IN ILORIN. A detachment of gun-wielding soldiers from the Sobi Cantonment on Saturday stormed the popular Oniyangi newspaper distribution centre, along Emir’s road in Ilorin, to stop the circulation of The Nation newspapers in Kwara state.

About a week ago, the delegates to the ongoing National Conference have unanimously agreed that religious entities of Nigeria should start paying taxes to the government. It was noted that, since some pastors make sizeable profits out of running churhces, they should also pay taxes. It is now up to the National Assembly to pass the matter into a respective law or reject the proposition. When we asked Nigerians to submit their opinions on the matter, commentators have predictably split into two major groups: those who supported the plan and those who were adamant that religious organizations should be exempt from paying any taxes. Apart from obvious religious reasons, the latter respondents had it that the move made by the conference was a clear misplacement of priorities, as the delegates should address more pressing issues and problems that Nigeria and Nigerians are currently facing. They also expressed doubts in the effective allocations of funds generated from oil revenue, other mineral resources and i ...

SHE HAS TURNED OUR BEDROOM YO SHRINE, MAN TELLS COURT •He knew my dad is a herbalist before marrying me—Woman A man, Aminu Quadri, has told an Ilorin Area Court in Kwara State that his wife, Barakat, was fetish and diabolical. The 38-year-old resident of Gambari Area of Ilorin, Kwara State capital, prayed the court to dissolve his five-year-old marriage to Barakat. “My wife is too diabolical and always believes in black magic as the only solution to every problem, ” he said. Aminu told the court that his wife was fond of sprinkling black soap and red oil in the corner of their house. “My lord, I want an end to this marriage because my wife has turned our bedroom to a shrine. I can’t tolerate this anymore,” he said. According to Aminu, their marriage was contracted in 2009 and had produced a child. The defendant, however, objected to the divorce sought by her husband, saying she was still interested in the marriage. “My husband knows my father is a herbalist and I’m used to ...

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 ...
Today the Kwara State House of Assembly lost Hon. Haliru. He was a good, decent and principled man. May Allah grant him Aljanat Firdaus.
HON, MUHAMMAD IDRIS HALIRU (SAI BABA ). A member Kwara State House of Assembly Presently Representing Kaiama Constituency and one time Chairman Kaiama Local Government Council in Kwara State, is dead,. When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares and to us, you are not yet dead until we forget you. May your gentle soul rest in peace.

The Ilorin Central Mosque History The first Ilorin central mosque was founded in 1820. This was followed in 1835 when another central mosque was built at Idi-Ape during the reign of the first Emir of Ilorin, Abdul Salam. However, more than a century later, this central mosque could no longer cope with the phenomenal growth in the population of the Muslim Ummah of the city. For this reason, in 1974, the 9th Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji (Dr) Zulkarnaini Gambari invited Grand Mufti Alhaji Mohammed Kamal-u-deen and the present Wazirin Ngeri of Ilorin, Dr. Abubakar Sola Saraki to co-ordinate the fund-raising and the construction of a new central mosque befitting of the status of Ilorin as a city of Islam. The present Ilorin Central Mosque On April 30, 1977, the foundation was laid for the new mosque by the Emir of Gwandu on behalf of the Sarki Musulmi, Sultan Abubabar III. At the time the new Ilorin Central Mosque was completed and officially opened in 1981 by the former president Alhaji Shehu Shagari. Today the mos ...

When two bad news struck us confirming the dead of our two beloved brothers; Alh. Abdulrazaq Baba Sarki sanu and Alh. Moh'd Idris (sai Baba). Hon Member KWSHA, an incident that threw us into pandemonium and throwing d local govt Headquater into Cold feet. Alh. Baba Sarki Sanu who was on his way to Ilorin for a screening was shot by unkwon gunmen. We hope that the Kwara State Government will come to our aid in reparing our roads. We pray that Almighty Allah grant the departures an entenal rest, for we love you but Allah did much. To the families, may Allah give you the faith to bear the irreparable lost.

One universal consensus about leadership is that it is a process through which a person influences and motivates others to get involved in the accomplishment of a particular task. When asked about great leaders the world has produced, people readily reel out the names of the likes of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela etc. These are leaders that are admired because they put themselves to serve purposes that are larger than themselves in life. Prof. Shuaibu Oba AbdulRaheem (OFR), Talba of Ilorin indeed belong to the category of great leaders who lay enduring foundations of untiring selflessness which impact positively on the lives of multitudes. Born not with a silver spoon in his mouth, Prof. Oba underwent his educational pursuit diligently both in Nigeria and the United Kingdom. From the St. Malachy’s College in Minna where he trained as a teacher to Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria and the Universities of Sheffield and Kent, both in the United Kingdom where he studied at the Post G ...

WHO DO WE DESERVE IN KWARA STATE? leader or SERVANT In order to become the master, the politician poses as the servant (Charles de Gaulle). If we love our state, we should also love our statemen. Kwara state is blessed with rich people, rich in culture and rich in resources but we have bad people as leaders. Obafemi Awolowo said ( lecture at the university of lagos, 1968); the touchstone of what is good, be it though, words, or action is LOVE. We are to love our neighbours as ourselve. That's the law and the prophet. Anything therefore--any thought or word or action which falls short of love is EVIL and holds within itself the germs of its own eventual and inevitable destruction. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thought events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinarily result. Any man who has to take up the service of the govt must ask himself two questions; do I love my people in order to serve them? Am I humble and do I listen to everybody to diverse opinions in ...

UNREST IN KWARA PDP PROVES COSTLY, AS KWARA LOSES MINISTERIAL SLOT THE unending disagreements, power play and ego grabbing presently on-going within the highest echelon of Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Kwara State, has proved costly. This is aftermath the snub of the State at the Federal level, when the President Goodluck Jonathan nominated nobody from the State for the vacant ministerial slot. However, the former Governor of Kano State, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau; Prince Adedayo Adeyeye (Ekiti); Abdul Bulama (Yobe); and Dr. Stephen Orlu (Delta) were all nominated as Ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria This was contained in a letter sent addressed to Senate President, Senator David Mark, which was read on the floor of the Senate. The President, in the letter, sought for the confirmation of the ministerial nominees by the Senate. Nominees from Kwara and Anambra States were not included in the names sent to the Senate. Jonathan also attached the curriculum vitae of nominees to the letter. The lett ...

Thankfully, d media did not pity him at all on this! BUT, yet again, one wonders, 'where were d media n Nigerians when Rotimi Amaechi (Gov. of Rivers State), Fashola (Gov of Lagos State) and their Kwara State colleague passed similar abhorrent laws???

THE Senate is set to debate and adopt the report of its Finance Committee’s investigation into the alleged $49.8 billion oil funds this week. It was learnt that the leadership has instructed its Committee on Rules and Business, led by Senator Solomon Ita-Enang, to immediately schedule the report for debate before Thursday to allow the chamber take position on it as a way of halting and reversing the disquiet that has arisen in the Upper Chamber since the Ahmed Makarfi- led committee submitted the report last Wednesday. The major thrust of the report was its submission that “there was never any unremitted $49.8 billion” as it stated “The committee could not see how the figure of $49.8bn was arrived at by the CBN governor in the first instance.” Amidst reports of serious lobby by some All Progressives’ Congress (APC) Senators to get the report thrown out when it is brought out for debate this week, a member of the committee and former Kwara State Governor, Senator Bukola Saraki (APC) has raised ...

Twenty-four-year-old Sherifat Bakare, is a young lady one could describe at first glance as pretty. But as she sat on the ground in front of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Ogun State Police Command in Abeokuta, one cannot but imagine how deadly she might have been on operations with her robbery gang. “I was hustling before Raji, my boyfriend, told me to join his gang,” Bakare began. But when she was asked to elaborate on what she did as a “hustler,” she explained that she meant prostitution. Bakare in company with four other members of her gang, were apprehended on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 by the men of Ogun State SARS, who had been on their trail after receiving a tip-off about the gang’s plan. It all began a few weeks ago, Bakare narrated. She said another member of the gang, Bola Onasile, (also in SARS custody) had approached her boyfriend about the availability of N70m in a wealthy man’s house in Joju area of Sango, Ogun State. “I have only gone on two operations with them. I don ...

As a true son of his father and the new leader of the Saraki political dynasty that has held the people of Kwara State chokingly in vice grip since the second republic, Dr. Bukola Saraki stepped into his father’s shoes without much ado. Continuing in the tradition of his father even after leaving office, with the aid of a successor who has been described as a mere puppet or in the words of an analyst, “a toothless bingo who wags his tail occasionally but quickly recoils same once his master barks, Saraki, the medical doctor turned politician has been able to transform into a de-facto governor wielding an iron grip on the state governme ...

MESSAGE TO NUMBER ONE AKOTILETA OF KWARA ( ABS- PRODIGAL CHILD) Whether you wish us well or not, we are ready to pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty. It is wrong to avoid the struggle against imperialism and dictatorship. When govt undertakes to say to its subjects; this you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know, the end result is tyranny. This is exactly what we are experiencing in kwara state. Who's ABS to be seeing himself as something? ABS is a man that consumes without producing. He doesn't give milk, he doesn't lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbit, yet he is lord of animals. You can be seeing yourself as one because of the calibre of people that you made Special Advisers (SA). Albert Einstein said and I quote, an empty stomach is not a good political adviser. All your SAs and commissioners are your hand bags who are after ...

The chairman, Senate Committee on Environment and Ecology, Dr Bukola Saraki has urged Nigerians to stand and speak as one to demand an end to insecurity, corruption, and all other social ills that have plagued the nation. Saraki in a Democracy Day message to Nigerians urged them to demand that “In 2015 Nigeria display its commitment to democracy, so that we have credible, free and transparent elections”. He emphasized the need for Nigerians to have the will and courage to defend the nation’s hard earned democracy. “This is a process that starts now, that sees democratic and transparent processes to select candidates through to election day where we are free to vote for the candidate we believe in. “Democracy is not practiced by mirroring the language that we speak, where we come from or what religion we worship; democracy is the opportunity to address the issues that affect us all.

Kwara Govt. and the Politics of a Loan State Government bid to access a N23bn loan from the capital market is generating ripples. Our correspondent gives an insight into the bond proposal and the disagreement with the opposition party. Indications that Kwara State Government would secure a loan in the 2014 fiscal year emerged in December, last year, when Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed, presented the 2014 appropriation bill before the legislature. In the appropriation bill which has been passed into law, the governor hinted that the administration would during the year, access N30bn bond to complement other sources of funding especially the monthly statutory allocation which it says has dipped recently. The government said the burden placed by the financial needs has made a recourse to the capital market inevitable to enable the government carry out mega projects requiring huge capital. The state government during a State Executive Council (SEC) meeting in April however, decided to lower the stakes to go for N2 ...

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.

This is contrary to views of some political leaders in the area who said that strength of the state lies in unity of all people in the state, irrespective of tribe, race, ethnicity or religion. The position of the two groups, which comprised Yoruba people from the 12 Yoruba speaking local government areas of Asa, Ekiti, Ifelodun, Irepodun, Ilorin East, Ilorin West, Ilorin South, Offa, Oyun, Oke Ero, Moro and Isin in the state, formed part of the resolutions reached after a meeting in Ilorin at the weekend. A statement, signed by secretary of KSCF committee on National Conference, Mr. Lawrence ...
