Police threaten to stop the salaries of 30 missing officers The salaries of the 30 Mobile policemen who were declared missing after an attack on the Police Training School, Gwoza, Borno State, by the Boko Haram insurgents, may be stopped by April, 2015, if the men failed to show up at their squadron units. Investigations by our correspondent indicated that the missing personnel, may be given up for dead, if they did not report to their commanding officers by the end of the first quarter of the New Year.

TEXT OF A PRESS CONFERENCE BY MR. PHILIP TATARI SHEKWO, CHAIRMAN, ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS, NASARAWA STATE CHAPTER, ON MONDAY, 24 NOVEMBER, 2014 AT LAFIA. Gentlemen of the Press. Events of the last one month and last few days have called for concerted efforts from all peace loving people of Nasarawa State towards calming frayed nerves and finding lasting solutions to the intractable security challenges facing our dear state, particularly the Southern Senatorial District. As we mourn our dead and provide succour to the distressed and displaced ones, actions and utterances that will exacerbate the crisis must be avoided by all well-meaning individuals institutions and organizations. Attempts to politicize these conflicts in the past have tended to distract attention from the plight of the victims and the imperative of bringing the perpetrators to book. It is in the light of this that we address you today in order to put records straight and correct the jaundiced impression created by the Peoples Democratic ...
PDP clears Maku , others to contest primaries for 2015 governorship election The immediate past Minister of Information, Mr Lararan Maku, has said that political parties should not be seen as mere platforms for capturing political power, but foundation for building nations.He said this on Sunday in Abuja after being screened to contest the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Dec. 8 primaries in Nasarawa State.

DECLARE STATE OF EMERGENCY IN NASARAWA STATE.the spate of lawlessness in Nasarawa state has apparently resulted to anarchy where mercenaries are confidently and unabetedly executing atrocities on innocent citizens and properties from the onset of the so called Umaru Tanko Al-makura's administration whibh has proved fron events that it lacks the capacity and ability to put an end to the murder and arson which has enveloped the state throughout the regime.In the light of that i implore the PRESIDENCY to SAVE THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE by declaring a STATE OF EMERGENCY in the state lest the genocide would wipe out some targetted nationalities in the state.
APC govs may reject Tambuwal to work for Buhari Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress may queue behind Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) as the preferred presidential candidate of the party for the 2015 election, SUNDAY PUNCH has learnt. The governors are suspecting that those asking the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, to pick the presidential form are enemies of the party. Two of the governors, who spoke with our correspondent on Friday and Saturday respectively, said they would work for Buhari. One of them, who called our correspondent on Friday evening, said there was no way he and his colleagues would support Tambuwal. He said he and his colleagues were not worried with Tambuwal’s picking of the party’s presidential form. He said, “We are not worried with his picking presidential form. He’s not going far. “We expected him to focus on him becoming the governor of Sokoto State. He’s a good product anyway, but he’s not ripe for Presidency no ...

The PUNCH learnt that those that were killed hailed from Umme, Arugbadu and Bakyano villages all in Nasarawa Eggon Local Government Area. Their bodies were said to have been recovered and buried at Umme, amid wailing from family members and sympathisers. Speaking in an interview with journalists on Sunday, a resident from Arugbadu, Habibu Mohammed, said at Rugbadu that he was returning from the farm along with his parents when Fulani gunmen opened fire on them.
INEC PRESS STATEMENT The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is strongly committed to ensuring that every properly registered voter get his / her Permanent Voter Card (PVC) for the 2015 general election. Contrary to allegations in some quarters, no duly registered person has been delisted from the Register of Voters; neither will any be denied his / her PVC. This reassurance is against the backdrop of temporary challenges that have been experienced in the third phase of the distribution of PVCs in some states, which the Commission has been making vigorous efforts to remediate. INEC has since Friday, November 7th, 2014, been distributing PVCs to registered voters in nine states across the country under the third phase of the exercise. Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) is scheduled to hold in the same states from Wednesday, November 12thto Monday, November 17th, 2014. Similar exercises have already been conducted in 24 other states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) under the first and t ...

Family members told newsmen in Lafia that unknown gunmen came out from a nearby bush and hailed down the vehicle in which the head driver was travelling in company of his wife, and shot him dead.

JUGO REPORTER : ABUJA WITNESSED ABIA MOST ACCEPTABLE GUBERNATORIAL ASPIRANT NOMINATION FORM SUBMISSION IN PDP WADATA HOUSE YESTERDAY: What started as a normal day for Wadata House workers,took a different dimension as some of the staff confirmed that it was only when Pres. Jonathan came to pick his nomination form that they witnessed such crowd and acceptability of an Aspirant. How else do one express what happened than "USO is a man of the people".

I smell foul play with the way INEC is going about the distribution of the Permanent Voters Card. Why is it that INEC is having problem with the distribution of card in mostly all opposition state. Lagos, Ogun, Rivers Nasarawa states all opposition state is affected with patial distribution of PVC card. Let me ask why did INEC who announced in 2010 that the total register voters in lagos state is 6 million plus now turn around to say that its only 4million voters they have on their register. I will like to ask INEC the 2million voters what happen to them? I can see that INEC is planning to disenfranchise Nigerians of their right to vote with this action. This actions by INEC posit danger for our electoral process in 2015 as this is a clear plan of rigging by INEC and its agents. I want Nigerians to ask INEC why is it that the partial distribution only affect opposition states and not the state of the ruling party. Is this their rigging strategy? Nigerians are watching. Everyone matters o

In Nasarawa, ambitions run high on Al-Makura’s performance record Category: Inside politics Published on Saturday, 11 October 2014 05:00 Written by Hir Joseph, Lafia Hits: 1231 0 Comments 0 inShare Ambitions are running high among Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura’s loyalists for legislative seats to represent Nasarawa State at all levels in 2015. The aspirations are justified - all of the aspirants are part of the successful reform process that has driven the level of performance of the administration since 2011. There are over a dozen of Al-Makura’s men, by the last count alone with at least six of them core loyalists of the governor. These men were not only part of the air under the wings that immensely helped Al-Makura’s candidature at the 2011 election; they are also part of the team Al-Makura used to drive the implementation of his development vision, and the execution of projects. They are part of the team, on whose individual or collective shoulders, the burden of the struggle that translated ...

Nigeria: Wade Into Edo Assembly Crisis, Senator Urges Nass By Celestine Okafor and David Odama Abuja — Chairman of the Senate Committee on Gas, Nkechi Nworgu, has expressed dismay at the on-going crisis rocking the Edo State House of Assembly, which has resulted in the polarisation of the state legislature along party lines. The lawmakers on both the All Progressive Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platforms, led by Uyi Igbe, the speaker, and his estranged deputy, Festus Ebea, currently make independent laws for the state. The Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomole, only last week presented his 2015 Appropriation Bill before the Igbe faction of the assembly, which many insist remains the authentic legislative chamber, rather than the faction provided police protection, and allegedly backed by godfathers based in Abuja. Reacting to the crisis in the Edo parliament on Saturday in an interview with Sunday Independent, Senator Nworgu expressed disappointment that the crisis is happening in a s ...

A SHORT STORY OF ALAGO PEOPLE: ‘Forward ever, backward never’ Alago people of Nasarawa State are descendants of the famous Kwararafa kingdom, who found themselves in this part of the divide, shortly after the dis-integration of the kingdom. History has is that we stayed shortly in the present day Idah, in Kogi state before moving to our present settlements. Only six of them came-in here, children of the same parents but thank God, today we have grown to a larger number. The 1991 national census conducted by the federal government has placed us on 11th position, out of over 220 tribes in the country, to God be the glory. Alago people that I know very well are accommodative, had working and industrious, straight forward, composed, blessed with talents and economically vibrant. The traditional political administration of the Alago people was organised before the advent of the amalgamation of Nigeria and on arrival of the white men, they described Alago as well organised set of people and gave them two c ...

Nasarawa's Gains, PDP's Pains The only moment Nasarawa PDP gets temporary relief is when the party indulges in discrediting the landmark development efforts of the visionary Governor of Nasarawa State, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura. PDP always engages in this ignominious through its characteristics grandstanding or getting their propaganda tools-Yunana Iliya, Baba Ibaku and Labaran Maku. Iliya, Maku and Ibaku were always at their elemental paroting of their party's voice in media reports. But if anything, they always ended up drowning in the arcane hollow ritual of mouthing that nothing is working in Nasarawa. This trite lyric, which is only music to the ears of Yunana Iliya Labaran Maku, Baba Ibaku and blind converts like Solomon Ewuga and Dameshi Luka has become meaningless to the people of Nasarawa and those that value development. The pains that PDP is suffering today can easily be located. It does not need to visit any of the hospitals equipped and staffed by Al-Makura to find out the source of their pai ...
