“Gov. Shettima is finally exonerated” If there is a politician I revere most in this our country today, is the Kanuri born Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State, whom I also refer to as the Generalissimo of the Civilian JTF. He has put in a gallant fight in mitigating the menace of the Boko Haram insurgents on his people. The civilian JTF is his brain child using the meager available resources, local intelligence, encouraging and challenging the youths to come out and defend themselves and their communities or else nobody will do it for them. It was a clarion call that was massively responded to immediately. When the activities of the insurgence were getting out of hand and started taking a more deadly dimension, with daily loss of lives and property, Governor Shettima cried out telling the government that the insurgents are better equipped than the Nigerian military and therefore the need for urgent and more strategic intervention. Before you say Jack Robinson the noisy hornbills of the Aso Villa . ...
The major grounds for serving impeachment notice to the Nasarawa Governor include Sure p and Ubec funds.if a cursory and unbiased View is cast on the 36 states and abuja most of these Govetnors would be found wanting.from every indication Nasarawa State is working with model pilot primary schools in every local govt area and good roads,infrastructure and opening up of local govts and area dev councils.the greatest gift he gave to the civil servants in nasarawa is full implementation of the national minimum wage with leave bonuses and placing teachers on the same doubt workers there are ready to put their lives down to protect this governor.this is one governor that has direct links with the talakawas in his state and refused to stay at the Govt house but in his private residence.i luv the spirit of the nasarawa people in defending their gov against the selfish hawks in the Nass house of assembly who are out to please labaran maku and his boss.
CONSOLIDATION 2015. The greatest reason why I'm in race for Governor of Nasarawa State is not just to hold an office, but to gather with you to transform a our beloved State. - for justice and opportunity for all, - for better schools, -for health care for all, - for robust agricultural system and for security, - for security of lives and properties of all, - for Good governance and corrupt free society, I want us to take up the unfinished business of perfecting our union as Nasarawa State in respective of tribes and difference and building a better Nasarawa State for all and sundry. And if you will join me in this improbable quest come 2015, if you feel destiny calling, and see as I see, a future of endless possibility stretching before us; if you sense, as I sense, that the time is now to shake off our slumber, and slough off our fear, and make good on the debt we owe past and future generations, then I'm ready to take up the cause, and march with you, and work with you. Support me to be the flag bearer ...

Nigeria: Maku - Why Power Can't Return to the North in 2015 The Minister of Information and Supervisory Minister of Defence, Mr. Labaran Maku, Tuesday explained that northern Nigerian leaders lack the moral reasons to lead the country come 2015. He urged the people of the North to jettison ethnic politics and support the re- election of President Goodluck Jonathan. Maku said this in Kaduna, at a town hall meeting organised by the National Good Governance Tour (NGGT) team to round-off the three-day inspection visit to the state. The minister noted that the president had more than any other president shown commitment to the development of northern Nigeria, adding that no northerner elected as president would agree to spend one term in office. "If we are talking about development, clearly, clearly, clearly, the North has not had it better under any president than we have under Jonathan. So, we need to accept this reality so that we can proceed in this politics with conviction, rather than propaganda," he sai ...
How Jonathan Agreed To Serve Only One Term - Sen Adamu Senator Abdullahi Adamu was the governor of Nasarawa State from 1999-2007, and a former secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees. He says contrary to the denials, President Goodluck Jonathan did sign an agreement to run for only one term as president in 2010. He also speaks on the challenges the All Progressives Congress (APC) is facing from the PDP in Nasarawa State and his relations with Information Minister, Labaran Maku. Excerpts: You did say recently that you were present at the meeting where President Goodluck Jonathan agreed to serve for only one term in 2010, can you tell us more? I was part and parcel of that meeting. I was not the secretary or chairman of the party at that time but I was present at the meeting. The issue arose when people from the northern part of the country who were members of the meeting came up with the argument that the PDP has enthroned zoning and that after former President Olusegun Obasanjo, ...
Minister of Information, Labaran Maku, on Friday said the Kano State governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, is “afraid of his own shadow,” by casting aspersion on President Goodluck Jonathan over protests that rocked the state on Sunday. The minister, in response to statements by the governor, also blamed him for the protest in the city after the emergency of Lamido Sanusi as Emir of Kano. In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Joseph Mutah, Mr. Maku said the recent statement by the governor showcases an increasing impatience of the people of Kano with Mr. Kwankwaso’s ‘one-man rule’. The minister alleged that Mr. Kwankwaso imposes his will on the state with total disregard to the wishes of his people. Mr. Kwankwaso, in an exclusive interview with PREMIUM TIMES, accused Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan, of plotting to kill him. He also accused the president of igniting the protest in Kano after a former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Lamido Sanusi, emerged the emir on Sunday. In response ...
Jonathan, ministers hold tribute session for Akunyili President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday led members of the Federal Executive Council to pay special tribute to a former Minister of Information and Communications, Prof. Dora Akunyili, who died in an Indian hospital on Saturday.

Military And The Parable Of The Rapist By Emmanuel Onwubiko Out of the blues, in the last week of May 2014 till the first week in June, the Nigerian Military has waged unrelenting attacks against the print media in Nigeria. Same time, the chronically ineffective and professionally inefficient National Broadcasting Commission of Nigeria [NBC] issued a set of outrageous [mis] orders directing broadcast media owners to submit the list of their guests scheduled for live program hours before the commencement of broadcast of such programs. About same time, the decadent Nigerian Films and Video Censors Board failed to issue certification for the introduction to the Nigerian film market of the iconic movie adaptation of the book by the young and upwardly mobile writer Chimaamanda Ngozi Adichie titled ‘Half of the Yellow Sun’. The Abuja based censors board which by all indications is living on borrowed time given that the militarized atmosphere under which it was established has been taken over by the democra ...

Good Afternoon! Here are 15 things you need to know this Monday: June 9, 2014. 1. Kwara State Government has accused the State chapter of the PDP of patronizing falsehood and deliberately twisting facts in the name of politics. In a statement issued at the weekend by the State SSG, Alhaji Isiaka Ishola Gold, the state government said it does not pay and has not paid former governor, Bukola Saraki for utility or domestic upkeep. According to Gold, despite the ex-governor’s entitlements as contained in the law, the former governor has not requested for any provision for any domestic staff. So to say that it is because of Senator Saraki’s pension package the state could not pay salaries is totally false. 2. The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has disassociated itself from a congratulatory message the party sent out with reference to the initial false and unverified news that Alhaji Sanusi Ado Bayero emerged as the new Emir of Kano. Special Assistant to the party’s national publicity secretary, Mr. Richa ...
Traditionally in Igboland,when the stool becomes vacant by virtue of the death of the Emir or 'Igwe', the next person in the line of succession is usually the first son of the deceased without any form of rancour or jostling.But the situation in Kano has political undertones.Even with the deceased's first son alive and kicking,the grandson was preferred by the Rabiu Kwankwaso led-government.The deal is undoubtedly in furtherance of APC's plot to truncate President Jonathan's 2015 presidential ambition.With Sanusi Lamido Sanusi firmly in the saddle,President Jonathan has got to lick the mouthful of spittle he spat out some months ago; he has got to lick his arch-enemy's boots to secure his blessing if he must win the densely populated Kano State.What an ignoble stuff to do if Jonathan condescends so low to that but as a desperate politician desiring to return to Aso Rock by 2015,he has no option than to pander to the whims and caprices of the newly installed crowned Emir. With the new Emir and the Governor ...

JONATHAN WAR AGAINST MEDIA ENTERS SECOND DAY!!! The President Goodluck Jonathan regime on Saturday continued its onslaught on the media by impounding packs of major newspapers, their circulation vehicles and arresting drivers. The clampdown, which began on Friday, entered its second day on Saturday with greater ferocity. Our correspondents, who monitored developments round the country, report that early on Saturday morning, soldiers stormed newspaper distribution centres in the Federal Capital Territory and other parts of Nigeria. In Abuja, Saturday Punch could not distribute early because soldiers barricaded the newspaper distribution centre at Garki, ‘Area One’, marching out newspaper marketers, distributors and vendors around 2am. This was similar to what happened on Friday when soldiers and officials of the State Security Service tore wrappers of The Punch at the Murtala Mohammed Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, damaging copies of the newspaper in the process. On Saturday, the armed soldiers prevented marke ...

Chibok Girls Abduction Delays Jonathan's 2015 Second Term Declaration President Goodluck Jonathan's second term declaration is allegedly being postponed because of the April 14 abduction of over 234 female students from Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State by Boko Haram sect members. A presidential source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, disclosed this on Saturday. He said the president was supposed to announce his re-election in May ending in Port Harcourt, Rivers State but was shifted following the current mood of the country. He said the Vice-President Namadi Sambo-led Declaration Committee had earlier considered the end of May for the event which was later postponed. According to him, the president is expected to declare before or in August because that's when the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is slated to hold its National Convention. "Well, we hope that on or before August when the PDP will hold a National Convention, the President will make his declaration. We pray that the ...

Labaran Maku and Rueben Abati, is it possible.
If Jonathanians can congratulate a rumoured and an imaginary Kano Emir more than 5 hours before the real confirmation by the Kano State government, I wonder what is stopping Reuben Abati, Labaran Maku or Doyin Okupe from sending President Jonathan's good will messages to Allah's anointed Emir of Kano HRM Sanusi Lamido Sanusi more than than 4 hours after the official announcment. There is God oool!

CHIBOK GIRLS: Boko Haram soft-pedals, drops demand for release LAGOS—Boko Haram, which abducted more than 200 schoolgirls in Borno a month ago, has backed down on its demand for a release of its top commanders by government before the abducted girls could be released. It has also emerged that President Goodluck Jonathan has banned all his ministers and presidential spokespersons from commenting on any issue relating to the campaign by the Federal Government to rescue the girls. This came as the Defence headquarters warned against unauthorised visits to the areas of operation by tourists and journalists, saying such venture was risky. The Telegraph of London, in an exclusive report, quoted sources close to the militant Islamist group as saying that the sect has abandoned its demands for its top commanders to be released that could see “gradual” release of the schoolgirls as early as next week. In a significant concession, the group was said to have abandoned demands for its top commanders to be relea ...

Chibok Scandal: Jonathan’s Willful Entrapment on june 07, 2014 at 6:35 pm in news By Jide Ajani A scandal! That is what the Chibok abduction is turning out to be. By whatever description, a scandal is a scandal – the details of the circumstances of the scandal are another matter altogether. Scandals only have an impact when they happen on public figures or public institutions. The story of a philandering messenger in a multi-national company would never make any news; but a whiff of suspicion of adultery on the part of the chief executive of the same firm would make the headlines. But nowhere is scandal more attractive and destructive than in politics. Its effect is most debilitating when the scandal surrounds a governor; worse still, a President, his administration or his household. Ask some former American Presidents – Richard Nixon (Watergate); Ronald Reagan (Iran-Contra); and Bill Clinton (Monicagate or Zippergate). In his book, Political Scandals, Nigel Cawthorne chronicles a number of headl .. ...
DELTA BEYOND OIL: THE DELTA STATE MICRO CREDIT PROGRAM DMCP MODEL When Governor Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan took over office in 2007, he was saddled with the responsibility making a choice between doing things differently or doing things in the usual way. His words, “When I took the oath of office in 2007, I asked myself, ‘Do I undertake reform or should I allow business as usual’ I chose reform, I knew the risk, I knew I wanted to see changes and development in the state, I knew things needed to be changed and done differently.” Business as usual is a scenario in which politicians and their cronies in government, including contractors steal and loot funds at the expense of the people. Anything goes in such a capitalist setting, as what matters is not the interest of the generality, but the few that found themselves in government and corridors of power. According to Uduaghan, ‘’I also knew those used to business as usual were going to resist. I knew they were going to fight, they did fight, most t ...
Our African brothers, are we listening to the grave situation that we are judged upon owing to our collective insidious loss of thought. and are we only being friendly to each other by conflict... May any courage be blessed by grave concern as well as deep steps towards making the future better and buttressing the truth... My own is above, the rest is what the media wrote below. The Nigerian army has carried out raids on distribution centres handling several of leading national newspapers. The newspapers said their delivery vans had been searched and vendors questioned across the country, and copies of the papers destroyed. The move has been condemned as censorship by the newspapers and international media groups. But defence officials said it had been a routine security operation and denied confiscating copies. The Nigerian government and President Goodluck Jonathan are facing public pressure to do more to tackle a bloody insurgency by Islamist Boko Haram militants in the north. The group has attacked t ...

GOT THIS AND CANT STILL BELIEVE How Ezekwesili Used Education Funds To Aquire Airtel Shares And 11 Abuja Properties Former education minister under president Olusegun Obasanjo, Mrs. Obiageli Ezekwesili may have opened her own can of worms when she alleged that the governments of presidents Musa Yar’Adua and Goodluck Jonathan squandered $67 billion in foreign reserve. In response to Ezekwesili’s statement, the Federal Government not only said her allegations were “outlandish and clearly fictitious”, but queried her tenure as education minister where she received N458.1 billion between 2006 and 2007 and yet nothing to show in terms of achievements. The government also referred to her statement on the decay in education sector as “self-indictment” and hypocritical, wondering why she suddenly has solution to the problem facing the sector after she left office yet failed to do so while in office. According to Information Minister, Labaran Maku “We also found Mrs. Ezekwesili’s interrogation of . ...
FEC Briefing: Maku Has Declared Jonathan’s Office Vacant – APC Olaolu Oladipo — May 30, 2014 The All Progressives Congress (APC) declared yesterday that the comment credited to Information Minister Labaran Maku that the Federal Government was spending significantly on security in three of its controlled states was a categorical declaration of the office of the president vacant by the minister. According to the party, Maku by that statement has proved that President Goodluck Jonathan is only the president, leader and chief executive officer (CEO) of PDP and not of Nigeria. At the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) briefing on Wednesday, the minister had drawn the attention of Nigerians to the entire money Federal Government had been spending to maintain security in states controlled by the APC, just as he queried the opposition party for coming back to start playing politics with the security situation in the country. Maku added that while 90 per cent of all insurgency was happening in states con ...
THE DISTRUST BETWEEN APC AND PDP OVER Boko Haram MOST UNFORTUNATE Listening to Labaran Maku claim that 90% Bring Back Our Girls protests Organizers are APC members, even when the known leaders do not belong to any political parties; listening to Ahmadu Adamu Muazu PDP National Chairman accuse the APC of perpetrating Boko Haram, listening to Doyin Okukpe claim on the BBC that some bombings in Nigeria are not caused by Boko Haram even where the sect claims responsibility; listening to the President himself claim that Insurgency is staged to bring down his government, even when the insurgency predates his administration, listening to... Yet, unless both APC and PDP and indeed all Nigerians work together insurgency will never go away. Please Boko Haram is not a creation of any political parties. Boko Haram is creation of years of misrule and useless radicalization of northern youths and their appropriation by international terrorist organizations, especially the Al Qaeda and Al shabaab. Let u s leave politic ...
Labaran Maku,we re nt fools,is Michelle obama a member of APC? u sociopath!
We are confronted with all manner of spokespersons reeling out information after another. They are brazen and audacious, in total lack of decorum and sedateness. We once had a Minister in this country who told us telephone was not for the poor. Can you beat that? In the last one month alone, they have been all categories of information handlers who do nothing but confused the populace. But truly speaking, who should we listen to? Is it Doyin Okupke, Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs, Reuben Abati, SSA on Media and Publicity, Labaran Maku or Anyim Pius Ayim, Secretary to the Federal Government? Let us stop at this four personalities but, to be candid the list is endless. We could go on and on. When the White House releases a statement, most likely it emanated from Jay Carney, when the British foreign office speaks, who else but William Hague is communicating. So who speaks for Aso Rock? Didn't they say information is power? Or better still, precise and concise information is not just power, it get ...

"While Interior Minister, Abba Moro, and Senate President, David Mark, have said the government would not negotiate the release of the girls, Information Minister, Labaran Maku, Director-General of National Orientation Agency, NOA, Mike Omeri, and Special Duties Minister, Taminu Turaki, have hinted that the Federal Government will do whatever it takes to free the girls, meaning that all options are on the table. To compound matters, President Goodluck Jonathan was widely quoted in the local newspapers Thursday as saying the government would not release the incarcerated Boko Haram members in exchange for the girls. ”This kind of utter confusion is a window deep into the inner workings of the Federal Government as far as this critical issue of finding and freeing the girls is concerned, and it is unfortunate. ”This is the kind of befuddlement that has characterized the FG’s response to the Boko Haram crisis and led to a sorry pass where a nation widely acclaimed for its global peacekeeping role is now ...
Nigerian lawmakers distorted 2014 budget – Maku - President Goodluck Jonathan has not signed the 2014 budget into law because federal lawmakers distorted its figures during approval, Information Minister, Labaran Maku, has said. “There are few areas of distortions and there are those areas that are very serious; and we think there is a need to look into them because of the negative impact those distortions may have on the implementation of the budget,” -- Maku Read more

If i were President Jonathan, I would stop having all these unpresidential media chats, I would make few comments on air, I would get good and excellent PR consultants to develop responses to lots of these issues in the front burner. I would sack Reuben Abati, Doyin Okupe, Labaran Maku, and the cohort. I would also convince mama *** to be a silent wife of Mr president, appearing in public with Mr president but never to be heard. I would also lead in the present by tackling issues as a Nigerian and not as a Christian president, an Ijaw president, a south south president, a minority president etc. I would try to engrave and emulate great leaders of contemporary times with international best practises. But who am I but a bloody bone setter and tormentor of bad governance.

Nigeria will overcome Boko Haram(Labaran Maku)---CNN---We need action and not empty boast from government
Reuben Abati, Doyin Okupe, Labaran Maku, should all bury their head in shame for belonging to this kind of Government of pain, I so much detest every bit of their contribution and support for Jonathan. They have murdered truth and truth is ready to expose and confine them into shame and regret for not telling us the true state of the nation. Rather they enjoy packaging Jonathan with false hood and lies. Nigerians must realize that now is the time to unlock the door to our deliverance from state of despair. Can we win this WAR?
Obama Sends Us Troops to Nigeria: Shekau Can't Keep the Girls As Sex Slaves "About 200 girls are still missing. We need to treat this like it happened in the United States", a US advocate says. And while the world is helping to see how we can get back our girls, Minister of Information, Labaran Maku, who is quick to attack any one who holds contrary opinion from government, could not come up to tell the world what the government is doing to rescue the abducted girls.
unfortunate that for a month now FG just making effort despite USG calling on GEJ to know how he might be of help but he and his cohorts turned deaf ears and playing with our intelligence telling us cramps that he not knew their whereabouts and his wife too shedding crocodile tears disgracing us with her ill-English and the so called Information Minister Labaran Maku telling us FG winning war on BH,he should just keep his mouth shut if he not know what to say Schoolgirls are tagged booty of war,now to add another insults NPF wanted offer to informants of whereabouts of abducted schoolgirls when globally knew they are in Sambisa forest,what's keeping all security agents from invading forest and rescued the hapless schoolgirls
If you do not have a constructive, reasonable, humane comment about the abduction of our girls, please just keep quiet. Labaran Maku, Doyin Okupe, Abati and the rest of them are doing a bad job already. Don't make it worse with these insane posts flying all around.
Boko Haram Is FG winning war on dreaded sect as ascribed by Labaran Maku? Think he should shut his mouth up,if they are winning war on sect why the abduction and yet till now none of them knew their whereabouts Hightime they called on Isreal

I have always seen the Information Minister, Labaran Maku, presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati, S A to president on political affairs, Doyin Okupe all speaking on Terrorism, but, neither d senior or state minister of defense has issued a word/statement on the state of affairs on security matter in Nigeria, why?
Ohazuruike Tochukwu wrote from Abuja: FROM WHAT I'M SEEING, we waited for 3 weeks before the world pressured our President to address the nation and yet he said nothing. Now seeing the frantic effort of Doyin Okupe and Labaran Maku on CNN to offer explanation and Police now offering $300,000 for information are all cosmetic approach to a national calamity. They planned this, executed it and now they have bungled it. What kind of leadership do we have in this country? Over another 150 people are killed in another Borno town of Gambouru
THE PARENT SAID TO CNN.. we sleep in the bush with our little ones.. SO sleeping in the bush with your kids is more safe now ? something is not adding up here. THE GIRLS ABDUCTION happened a month ago.. CNN no show all of a sudden it over-blow's now the WEF is on in NIGERIA... Well Labaran Maku nice one.. Some one even said that kidnappers Roam the street's in Nigeria Sizing whom to kidnap,,,and the security operatives are doing nothing about it.. hmmm.. am sure some people are seriously trying to paint Nigeria black now that the summit is going on

Why is Labaran Maku being defensive. *smh . May God help Nigeria and save us from some people! God have mercy and give us leaders that have wisdom and knowledge from above!
WHO let the dogs out on CNN ? Labaran Maku citing the Iraq continuum terror Card is pitiful at best . No disciplined Nation will Stick to the Buck Passing "terrorism is everywhere" Really ? How come folks still go to Hawai ? Isha Sesay you fall my hand o !
This attitude of saying terrorism happens everywhere and the fight against it is generally a difficult one just shows how irresponsible our leaders are. Labaran Maku seems to justify the inefficiency of our leaders by the above statement. Its just painful.

Friends, STAGNATED WATER STINKS! most of them are stagnated in government, there relevance can't flow in any other place or industry so we should expect them to stink in governance! They hold on to power because they can't function elsewhere! They hide their external regrets under government appointment masked by immunity clauses. check,how many politicians truly survive outside office. Statistics abound even within local and state level. Government is a continuum but mustn't continue by recycling old hands. Government is only a family name like we have reptiles but contains different species. Government is not a monopoly of confused and confounded obsolete hands. The challenge is building, identifying and placing credible called people. The greatest government is self government.

Information Minister Labaran Maku is a disgrace to Nigeria. You need to see how the noise maker was shouting at the top of his voice as he argued with a female interviewer on CNN, claiming that Nigeria has succeeded in its fight against insurgency when the whole world know that the US has sent its Army to help Nigeria rescue the over 200 abducted school girls from Boko Haram terrorists.
Watching Labaran Maku on CNN this morning, I felt ashamed to have him as our Information Minister. It is indeed a tragedy! A greater tragedy even awaits us if this loquacious talk-before-you-think individual smells Nasarawa Govt House.

Gulak is gone !the likes of Doyin Okupe, Labaran Maku, Nysome Wike, Abba Moro, should be shown the exhit door. Gulak's sack should serve as a lesson to politicians that power is transient and they should stop running their mouth as public tap especially Labaran Maku whose brain has gone on leave while the mouth is working over time and beyond the normal capacity recommended by God and Doctors.
Throughout the PDP dispensation, starting from Baba Iyabo to this clueless fisherman, I have never dislike with disdain the players in the polity like Labaran Maku and Ahmed Gulak. This duo have expressed high level of sycophancy and have committed act of treason by blindly supporting and making all efforts to protect a man who is out to destroy Nigeria. Unlike Maku, Gulak supposed to be a Lawyer by training and hails from a reputable clan in Adamawa State. The former has always been known to be an opportunist to enrich himself since his days as a Students' Union President. Both Gulak and Maku have declared godlike abilities and were arrogantly boastful that "No one can stop Jonathan from contesting in 2015". Now that this shameless short devil Gulak has been fired from being the Special Adviser to Mr Ebele, he should pick up his Muslim mind which he threw away the moment he began to fight for this wicked regime. If the mind is fixed back, he would reason well and alot of things will appear clear to him o ...
Labaran Maku, Reuben Abati and other FG parasites should watch out.
If they are not attacking Gej, they are attacking David Mark. If they are not attacking Okonjo Iweala, they are attacking Dazieni Allison-Madueke or Labaran Maku. Haba! If there is corruption in this government as they want everybody to believe, is Sambo not part of this government? What of Tambuwal? Lamido Sanusi served this government for close to five years, he did not see any corruption until it dawned on him that he was not going to be retained for a second term before he started "exposing corruption". Sanusi was hailed despite speaking from both sides of his mouth. Tambuwal whose leadership of the house of reps could not guarantee an effective over-sight function on the executive is a presidential material on the side of these people. This tactics will not work. - - Abdul Falade
Nigerians need to stand against commercial liars like Reuben Abati, Doyin Okupe, Ahmed Gulak and Labaran Maku.
GOV. MURTALA NYAKO TO LABARAN MAKU In response, some officials in the President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration reprimanded Mr. Nyako, with the latest coming from Mr. Maku who described the comments made by the governor as irresponsible. Mr. Nyako has now responded to Mr. Maku’s comments saying “the likes of Labaran Maku represent the tragedy that has befalling Nigeria as a nation. Their views on governance and manifest actions clearly prove the gutter level public policy has descended to in today’s Nigeria”. Mr. Nyako, who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Ahmad Sajoh, said Mr. Maku betrayed the calling of his office by his remarks. “For anyone given the responsibility to manage information to advice that people should be silent means that under such leadership sycophants and sundry charlatans are the only citizens’ required. “An Information Minister calling on people to keep quite in the face of wanton lies, serial deceptions and series of unanswered questions is undoubtedly a ...

Why all these cacophony by the government that Nigeria is now the largest economy in Africa continent and 26th globally. The Federal Government rebased the Gross Domestic Product of the country last week. Rebasing the economy simply involves updating GDP base year (1990) to 2010 to give a better indication of the size and composition of our economy by updating our base year to 2010 instead of 1990. Put starkly, it's updating the census of our economy just like we counted citizens and updated how many we are. People at the corridor of power have been given themselves accolades for achieving an extra-ordinary feat for rebasing our GDP. I watched Minister of Information,Labaran Maku yesterday when he was briefing press about the outcome of the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting, he dwelt so much and was so vociferous about the country's new GDP, saying Nigeria has now overtaken South Africa as the Africa largest economy. While I commend the efforts of the Statistician General and CEO, National Bureau o ...

Labaran Maku Begs Military Not To Abort Democracy By labaran_maku Mr Labaran Maku Minister of Information pleaded with the military not to interrupt democratic governance in the country, just as it gave assurance that the problem of insurgency, communal clashes among other challenges would soon be things of the past. Labaran Maku, while handing over in Abuja, as Supervising Minister of Defence to the new minister, Lieutenant General Aliyu Gusau (rtd), told the military not to consider the utterances against 2015 as well as Boko Haram fight especially by the Borno State governor, Kashim Shetima, saying that “even the state governor has the misfortune of discretion.” He stressed that the country was faced with serious challenges ranging from Boko Haram insurgency to the troubles about 2015 general elections, communal crisis between grazers and farmers amongst others, but assured that it would overcome them all. The minister expressed regrets that while Boko Haram was orchestrating crisis ...

Nigeria has appealed to France and Abuja’s Francophone neighbours, especially Cameroon, to help it in the battle against insurgents, two days before a planned visit from French President Francois Hollande. On the day suspected Boko Haram Islamists slaughtered 29 students in their hostel, Information Minister, Labaran Maku, warned that the attacks could harm French and other Western interests in West Africa if left unchecked. “I think what we need is international cooperation from the French, from the French-speaking West African countries to work together to deal with this problem before it becomes a major problem for France, for Western interests operating in West Africa. “It will devastate French interests if we allow this terror to go on,” the minister told AIT television. The comments came ahead of a planned visit by Hollande today and tomorrow to attend an international co ...
The Information Minister, Labaran Maku recently said that, at all levels, no government has done what the Jonathan administration had done. But here you are reeling out achievements. How does that make you feel, compared to the assertion that they have done the best? All I can say is that I hope the best of Nigeria is really further ahead. I don’t want to be the best governor of Lagos. I want better governors to come after me. I think that it’s a leadership problem. When this sort of statement is made, you must contextualize it into whether or not we really have prepared ourselves for the kind of responsibilities that we have. Would there have been a Nigeria if those who fought the war didn’t sacrifice? So, for somebody to come after that to say, ‘we are the best…’ That was governance. Keeping the peace and unity of this country, people lost their lives. They served. How do you dishonour their memory and service by saying nobody has done what you have done? I have never heard any government th ...

Presenting the allocation papers to the universities, Supervising Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike declared that the Jonathan will religiously implement the revival of infrastructure in the public universities, pointing out that the Needs Assessment report was basically Jonathan's initiative.

Nigeria's Minister of Information, Mr. Labaran Maku said those criticizing the INEC at the Federal level commit greater election frauds at their various States.

Reaping the Benefits of Media Friendliness of Abia State Governor By Charles Ajunwa It is a measure of its indispensable role in democratic societies that the mass media has come to be regarded as the fourth estate of the realm. Over the centuries, the advanced democracies of the world have depended on the media to foster their political, economic and social development. At every stage of their advancement the media was always visible as a dependable partner in progress. That is why today, the mass media dominates every aspect of life in developed societies. The influence is so much that many of such societies have turned into mass societies, a situation where the mass media has stripped the society of its diversity and dictates how everybody lives their lives. As if that is no enough the electronic media, especially television, has combined well with the information technology and successfully turned the world into the “global village” we have today. This phenomenon has shortened distances and litera ...

Labaran Maku appeals to media professionals and civil society groups to highlight evils of violence against women for a permanent remedy.
I was actually expecting this. In short order, Labaran Maku will also claim this as a dividend of GEJ's Transformation Agenda.
Doyin Okupe, Labaran Maku and CP Mbu should be there also!!!
President Goodluck Jonathan named Brigadier-General Jones O. Arogbofa as his new Chief of Staff late Tuesday. The appointment, and Arogbofa’s duties, will take effect immediately. With this latest appointment, the Brigadier General becomes the face of the Jonathan administration, and his public duties will include facing the media for presidential announcements ranging from policy statements, to new initiatives. The Jonathan appointment of the Brig-General had been rumored, and speculated by government insiders, including Nigerian political watchers for some time, as reported by Sahara Reporters in recent days. Four cabinet ministers were sacked late last week, and they include the Minister of Police Affairs, Navy Capt. Caleb Olubolade (Rtd.); Yerima Ngama, the Deputy Finance Minister, and Minister of the Niger Delta, Godsday Orubebe. Perhaps the most surprising of the four removed from their posts was Stella Oduah, the Nigerian Aviation Minister, who was a close friend and political ally of the presid ...
Achebe caused Ezeulu the Chief Priest to say: ''I would not have spoken again today if I had not seen adult in the house neglecting their duty''. One part of the Nigerian irony must be the incidence of too many ignorant men in high stations. It gets so messy when these men are unleashed on our rather innocent, especially TV viewing public. Firsly, the truth though is bitter, but it must be told, because if we fail to reveal it, it will definitely reveal itself one day. Gov. Shettima of Borno State should be commended for hitting the nail on the head, rather than condemnation by President aid (Doyen Okupe). On Monday Gov. Shettima said that BokoHaram insurgents are better armed than the Military. Is it a lie? Doyen Okupe, Labaran Maku and Ruben Abati are men to be watched in the future, because they are share of the task is to allow intrested partisans from trading on public innocence for private profits.
Most controversial liability to GEJ on d EXCOF is Labaran Maku who should be booted out asap!
Labaran Maku...are you sure you are gonna survive the next ministerial shuffle by President GEJ?

have un-Islamically elected to have their 20 virgins right here on earth instead of heaven where there is an additional river of wine forever. . This' where the line is drawn: supposed Jihadists killing people on behalf their powerless god in expectation of a Sugar Candy Mountain, full of naked virgins whose single touch by the breast sends one into ecstatic coma for 400yrs have now decided to rather commit "HARAM" itself by an abominable crime of kidnap & rape? You are criminals and not representatives of any religion. Not even animism. federal govt of Mr. Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Mainassara Jonathan should engage the use of drone misiles from U.S.A. or alternatively employ the services of from Nasarawa, the brothers of former Comr. Labaran Maku of Eggon.

SELL THIS PRODUCT WELL President Jonathan. It's no news that our previous ministers for information has been affront and unflinching in their defence of the president (Prof Jerry Gana/ OBJ; Prof Dora Akunyili/ Yar'adua; Labaran Maku/GEJ). We had: Kema Chikelu & Nweke Jnr. Speaking for OBJ; Segun Adeniyi speaking for Yar'adua; and now, who is speaking for President Jonathan? Dame Jonathan and Ed. Clarke. Pele presidenti mi

If only he knows how many great ideas have gone under bcos of lack of power. Am sure he has generators in his house o. Nd he dey run him mouth like person wey get mouth odur. Shio
It may sound surprising to some people but to me, its just a confirmation of what we have been working hard to make people realize. Despite the recent cabinet shake up, Labaran Maku was still retained in his positions. This is no doubt that its as a result of his outstanding remarkable performance and positive contributions. We shall continue to remain prayerful, focused and committed in our struggle on the clarion call on His Excellency, Labaran Maku to come and use his wealth experience and wisdom to save Nasarawa State come 2015 from the retarding developments the state is witnessing.
I personally admire Hon. Labaran Maku. But to be more sincere with myself, I think he fits perfectly as a Govt. Aide or an Sen. John Danboyi will be my preferred candidate come 2015.
Where is Labaran Maku? You won't see him now act his role as the Information Minister now but when u need him to speaker his is glued tight

State Govts. Should Stop Politicking with Education --- Wike The Supervising Minister for Education, Chief Nyesom Wike, said that state governments should stop playing politicking with education and pay attention to the sector. Wike made this known at the presentation of the 2013 Annual Report of the Federal Ministry of Education in Abuja on Monday. ``It is unfortunate that education has become a political tool in the hands of most state governments. ``How can a state government that claim to have prioritised education, have millions of unaccessed funds with UBEC? ``This is unacceptable as the future of Nigerian children cannot be sacrificed at the altar of politics,’’ he said. The minister regretted that the inability of states to access intervention funds was sending the wrong signal to the public that there was shortage of funds in the education sector. Wike said that not less than N51billion counterpart funds were yet to be accessed by some states. He said the ministry had, therefore, directed the ...
GEJ is not that dull but having Labaran Maku is a sign.
President Jonathan MUST HEAR THIS. Is it true that Konduga, the village Boko Haram members burnt last week is just 35 km away from Maiduguri? They operated there for over five hours where they burnt about 2000 houses and 39 civilians were killed. Since Labaran Maku, Abati, Okupe and other advisers have refused to talk to Mr president, I want to use this medium to ask this question on behalf of Mr President. Where were the Nigerian Soldiers for the over 5 hours the killings and destruction lasted? Whatever answer you get should form the basis of the next line of action Mr President will take. Anyway, the Minister of defense may have to resign as well as all the advisers. Where are the Northern elders routing for Jonathan? Shame don catch my mouth.

Some people are misconstruing the news of Mrs Oduas dropping 4rm d cabinet.According 2 d news that was broadcast on that day,Labaran Maku said Mrs Oduah and some other ministers were droppd because of their POLITICAL AMBITIONS and not because of some irregularities or mischief they perpetrated.
Jude Imagwu was once the NANS President, Labaran Maku former Student Leader and Reuben Abati...erm* lets just leave that one.
We! The people's of Nasarawa State make call on you, mr. Labaran maku to come for governorship candidate in our dear state. Mr. Minister you are welcome.
It takes an insensitive *** to use the words "Away from Boko Haram issues", and then go on 2 talk about Labaran Maku's Tour!. Yea, I SAID!
Labaran Maku's ability to keep a poker face even in the face of ministerial tragiComedy is unsurpassed.
