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 ...

Alakyo is the village where about 74 security operatives were ambushed and killed on May 7, 2013. It was burnt down along with other Eggon settlements of Fadaman Bauna and Akura, displaced persons said. Scores were said to have been killed. The invasion happened barely a day after Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura led a peace walk round Lafia, the state capital in celebration of his 62nd birthday. Barrister Zachary Zamani Allumaga, Legal Adviser of the Ombatse group which has been proscribed by the state government, said information available to him showed that Baba Alakyo and the village head of Alakyo were killed in the raid which he blamed on the Fulani.

When will the people of Nasarawa state learn to love each other, when will eggon man see an alago man as his broda likewise every other tribe in nasarawa state,when will they learn to live in harmony together as one, they seem not to be at par wit d trend of ever dynamic n evolving ways issues of dis nature is handled n a lasting peace brokered, if all ur fighting, killing n wantom destruction of properties, is for scramble for power n resources, then why not seat down on a round table n resolve on ways which this power resources can be shared n allocated, from my observation this whole thing is even taking a diffrent dimesion entirely, its not just only inter tribal anymore, there might be a political undertone to it, and what baffles me again is the religious angle, why burning down a church? Are u fighting d church? This states seem to be a bit behind in terms of development and yet all those involve in this crisis still continue to destroy n burn down some properties dat tend to give d state a face .. ...

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 ...

God, please forgive Nasarawa state especially Nasarawa south senatorial district for shading the blood of innocent souls. When this crisis started last year it was Agyaragu and Assakio axist some people thinked they were in their comfort zone, later obi became the victims. After obi it was turned to some villages in Lafia LGA, some gun men (fulani) came destroyed almost halve villages in lafia LGA in the name of tribalism. After the villages were destroyed in lafia there was no government action on insecurity, government were claiming of peace in nasarawa state to an extent that state governor Tanko Almakura deceived the whole world that there is peace in nasarawa state, funny enough the following day which was 16 November 2014 lafia started experience her crisis which lead to curfew now in Lafia. Now who is deceived who? For long there was no peace in nasarawa state but state government were hidden it bcos of selfishness and politics. Now that it's striked in lafia where they have their investment and o ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

MESSAGE OF GOODWILL 2014 EID-EL KABIR (SALLAH) CELEBRATION My brothers and sisters in Islam, Assalamu alaikum. 2. Yesterday, 3rd October, 2014 which coincided with 9th Dhul Hajj in the Islamic calendar, millions of Muslim pilgrims across the globe gathered on Mount Arafat, Saudi Arabia to observe the day. It was the climax of Hajj pilgrimage. 3. Today, the 10th of Dhul Hajj is, therefore, being marked throughout the world as Eid-el Kabir or the day of Sacrifice. 4. On behalf of the Government of Nasarawa State, I, Umaru Tanko Al-makura, the Governor, rejoice with and congratulate the Council of Ulamah, our religious leaders and, indeed, the entire Muslim community on this occasion that symbolizes universal brotherhood and unity. 5.

Thus, through devotion, we have had the opportunity of imbibing the virtues of love, forgiveness, perseverance, sacrifice, c ...

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 ...

The President’s Steward: A pauper in Aso Rock!

That, however, is not the case with the presidential steward, Mr. Micheal Onuh, who lives in a rented apartment on the outskirts of Nasarawa State and survives on two hours sleep daily. He has served different heads of state and presidents for 30 years as a steward. He started his work with Shehu Shagari, witnessed the coup d’tat of Major- General Muhammadu Buhari and General Ibrahim Babangida. He prepared the table of the interim government of Ernest Shonekan and witnessed the brutality reign of General Sani Abacha.

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 ...

Fashola Lambast Jonathan Says is underperforming. onathan, PDP’ve failed Nigerians, says Fashola Posted by: Augustine Ehikioya and John Ofikhenua Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola lashed out yesterday at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)-led Federal Government, saying it has failed Nigerians. Delivering the former Bayelsa State Governor, Timipre Sylvia’s birthday lecture in Abuja, Fashola said that Nigerians are worse off than they were four years ago before the present administration came into office. In the lecture titled “The challenge of democratic governance”, Fashola noted that the present administration continued to lie to Nigerians on many issues, including the abduction of over 200 Chibok girls and the alleged missing money from the Federation account. According to him, the election of a university graduate as president has not helped to develop the country in the past three years. He pointed out that states controlled by the All Progressives Congress (APC) are performing better tha ...

Stop politicising insecurity, Maku warns northern elite The Minister of Information, Mr. Labaran Maku, has restated his call on some elders in the northern part of Nigeria to desist from politicising current security situation in the country. Maku made the call on Saturday at Nyankpa at a civic reception held in his honour by the people of Nyankpa Kingdom, near Keffi, in Panda Development Area of Nasarawa state. He said that the call on President Goodluck Jonathan not to contest the 2015 elections as a result of the security challenge in the North amounted to politicising the security situation. He said that true sons and daughters of the north should be concerned about finding solutions to the problem rather than seeking who to blame for it. According to the minister, the president did not create the problems in the north so he cannot be held totally liable for them. “What is expected of all true sons of the north is cooperation with government to end the bloodshed. “What we have seen in the country ...

Information Minister Mr Labaran Maku has hit back at Northern Elders who asked President Goodluck Jonathan to bring back the Chibok girls as a precondition for his re-election. The over 200 government secondary school girls have been with the dreaded terrorist group, Boko Haram for over one hundred days now. Maku who spoke during a reception in his honor in Panda, Nasarawa state according to his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Joseph Mutah cautioned some politicians in the north against capitalizing on the insecurity in the region to further their personal political ambitions. He explained that as the 2015 elections approached, some politicians often make personal political proclamations claiming to be speaking on behalf of the north, whereas it was a common knowledge that they lacked the mandate to represent the views of the region on any national issue.

THE MAN OF THE MOMENT Every persons or groups of person with the kindest heart and understanding of Agwatashi and its environs would delightfully tell you that Arc Salihu H.

Am almost certain that not even the people of his abode fully understood what great thing had happened to them by the birth of this enigma. Through hard work, humility and commitment, difficulties could not stand on his way. Indeed, he is an avatar to all and sundry. He gives hope to the hopeless and helps to the helpless. Arc Salihu was born on 29th June 1959 in Agwatashi village of Obi Local Government in Nasarawa State. After his primary and secondary education, Arc Salihu proceeded to esteem Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria. Where he studied Architecture between 1979 and 1984 and bagged B. Sc and M.

Kano State governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has faulted his Nasarawa State counterpart, Umaru Muktar Almakura’s type of politics, saying it was responsible for his predicament. According to Kwankwaso, Almakura, currently facing impeachment launched by Nasarawa lawmakers, is too soft to be governor under President Goodluck Jonathan. Kwankwaso told journalists in his office, yesterday, that “you cannot be a gentleman and hope to survive as governor under the present dispensation”. He added, “A gentleman cannot be a good governor, you need to have so many faces because the game is rough and can’t accommodate a gentleman”. The Kano governor said Almakura rebuffed intervention and expertise to assist him navigate troubled waters, adding: “He is too soft for my liking. “On our volition, we suggested to him to allow us mobilise our foot soldiers. He refused. We also appealed to him to allow us come in physically. He refused; always distancing himself from such expertise that would assist him”. T ...

Kwankwaso attacks Jonathan again •Fed Govt promoting hatred, corruption President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s administration promotes hatred, enmity, ethno-religious rivalry and corruption, Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State said at the weekend. Kwankwaso, who spoke to reporters in his office, said the inability of President Jonathan to tackle insurgency in the North and insecurity in other parts of the country exposes his incompetence to preside over Nigeria’s affairs. According to him, the real cause of insecurity is bad leadership being experienced in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) government. “We have good materials in APC; we have people, if given the opportunity, I have no doubt in my mind we can perform creditably. Look, I am conversant with that Villa for over 20 years now. From the days of my membership of the House of Representatives as Deputy Speaker, I know what the Commander-In-Chief should be doing under these circumstances. “Now, they are just using propaganda.

Impeachment: Now that Nasarawa Law makers have scored an own goal By Musa Adamu I don’t know much of football game but I know enough of the game to know that an own goal situation by a player is depressing, lonely and even funny situation that a player can find himself in. Whoever is unfortunate to find himself in such situation rues the time he committed such self-inflicted infamy for the rest of his career and indeed draw a feeling of either indignation, pity or both. For such a player, the center may never hold again and indeed things have fallen apart for him. Impeaching a Governor is not a football game; it is much more than that. It is a Constitutional matter. It is a process fraught with series of steps that must be religiously followed. And anything short of this portends problems for the final goal of the process and could even lead to the table turning, making the hunter becoming the hunted. When the Nasarawa state Law makers hurriedly convened to serve the state Governor a quit notice (impeac ...

Nasarawa State lawmakers have insisted that embattled Governor Tanko Almakura sponsorship of frivolous recall process against some of them will not help his case as most of their constituents are PDP members, hence the governor’s expenditure of scarce government funds will yield no fruits. The lawmakers believe that such illegal expenditures running into close to a billion is why they have placed the governor in his current impeachment state. The governor is at present sponsoring recall process against the deputy speaker, Elisha Agwadu, Mohammed Baba Ibaku, Abdulkarim Usman, Francis Orogu and Mohammed Sidi Bako One of the affected lawmakers, Mohammed Ibaku said the governor’s effort will amount to an exercise in futility. He said: “I was voted by 43,500 PDP members of my constituency in 2011. My opponent polled only 13,000. If the 43,500 people who elected me say they want me out; I ...

TARABA STATE is the only state in the middlebelt which much internally generated conflicts usually arise amongst the indigenes of the state. Other middlebelt states usually have conflicts, but most of these conflicts are not between the indigenous groups of the state. Till today the great 'Ukwe of Takum' traditional rulership stool in Taraba is still vacant since 1996 simply because there has been a lingering disagreement amongst the Jukun, chamba and Kuteb in that area as to who should produce the traditional ruler. This issue has led to a lot of bitter conflicts in the past btw the 3 groups and till today it has not been resolved.The Jukun, Kuteb and other tribes in Taraba south also used to have problems with the Tivs in that zone over land disputes. In northern Taraba, the Mumuye and Kona jukun are the ones regularly having conflicts owing to land disputes. Taraba central is not also left out, though it has been the more peaceful zone but it has had it's differences in the past. Taraba ppl need to ans ...

Buhari Condemns impeachment Head of State and Former Presidential candidate,Gen. Muhammadu Buhari has condmened the impeachment of Mutala Nyako as well as the impeachment procedures against Nasarawa State Governor, Tanko Almakura. In a statement issued in Kaduna, Gen. Buhari alleged that the impeachment was induced to decapitate the opposition. According to him the developments in the polity were distracting attention from the nation’s ongoing survival battle against the terror group Boko Haram. ”Whether or not President Goodluck Jonathan is behind the gale of impeachment or the utilization of desperate tactics to suffocate the opposition and turn Nigeria into a one-party state, what cannot be denied is that they are happening under his watch, and he cannot pretend not to know, since that will be akin to hiding behind one finger. ”In my capacity as an elder statesman, rather than a politician, I have spoken to President Jonathan in private over these issues, but indications are that the strategy h . ...
