2027: Chairman UMAPO tips Senator Lawan as Buni’s successor in Yobe

By: Yahaya Wakili

The Chairman of the of the United Marketers Association Potiskum local government and its environs (UMAPO), Alhaji Nasiru Mato, has said that Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan, Ph.D., GCON, Sardaunan Bade, is supposed to be the governor of Yobe State in 2027.

Alhaji Mato said Sardaunan Bade is unparalleled in Yobe history, so if he becomes the governor of Yobe State in 2027, I believe he would approach so many things in the state.

The chairman disclosed this to reporters in his office. He said now is the time to develop Yobe State,  to empower the people of Yobe, to empower businessmen, farmers, pastoralists, and even transporters, as well as to upgrade the dignity of our state.

He pointed out that now is the time for Yobe State to need people like Sardaunan Bade who will bring development to the state, and he has all the requirements and is also capable of governing the state because he did a lot of things in his zone and we saw it.

“Since Nigerian democracy was restored in 1999, no federally elected politician in the whole Northeast region, not even Yobe State, has ever had the wealth, expertise, connections, or experience that Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan possesses.” Mato said.

According to him, the exceptional work of the distinguished President of the 9th Senate, Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan, is unmatched in Yobe state history, so if he becomes the governor of Yobe state in 2027, inshallah, he will develop the whole Yobe state within the shortest time.

Speaking on the allegations, Senator Ahmed Lawan didn’t extend his empowerment to other zones in the state. Mato said first of all, people should know the position of the Senate President. The Senate President seat is not for Yobe State; it is a seat for all Nigerians. 

“Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan, come there under his constituency; nobody from zone A or zone B come and vote for him; only the people from his constituency, which is zone C, come and vote for him and take him to the National Assembly.

The position of the Senate President is for the whole country, not Yobe State; he is just the leader of all senators who come from various constituencies across the country.

“It has become evident that Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan, Ph.D., GCON, Sardaunan Bade, is devoted to significant empowerment, not just lip service. So if given the chance, I am confident he will duplicate this exceptional accomplishment throughout the state by the grace of God,” he added.

According to Mato, the people of Yobe state should go back and think, since the creation of the state, just like preaching to people who hear the preaching he understands, and who didn’t hear the preaching, let him go and meet Ulamas and translate to him.

“Since the creation of the state, if we get development, people know; if we don’t get development, people know; and now everybody knows the situation we are in and the cost of living. Therefore, it is time to look for a good leader who can deliver, who can rescue the state from its present situation, and who can help the people and revive the economy of the state.” The UMAPO chairman said.

Nigeria, Egypt Work at Improving Volume of Trade

By: Michael Mike

Egyptian Ambassador to Nigeria, Mohamed Fouad has decried the volume of trade between Egypt and Nigeria which stood at $190 million in 2023, stating that conceited efforts are already on to improve it.

Speaking at the commemoration of Egypt’s 72nd anniversary of the 23rd July Revolution in Abuja, the envoy who expressed suprise at the level of bilateral relations between both countries, said he was however glad that deliberate efforts are on to improve on it going forward.

He said two major programmes have been lined up as part of the efforts to improve interactions between both countries.

He noted that bilateral political consultations scheduled to hold in Nigeria during the last quarter of the year and the business council in September, are aimed at bettering the relations between the two countries.

He said: “In terms of volume of trade I have the numbers of 2023, $190 million as I said, these figures does not live up to the economic potential of both countries.

In short, this is why we’re trying to focus and to live up to our potential as the biggest countries in the continent.”

He added, “Today, Egypt and other African countries strive to address challenges that are not less enormous than those they en countered during the struggle for independence.

“These challenges include the need to invest in human capital, energy transition, and infrastructure development, bolster economic growth and create jobs, combat terrorism and extremism, and empower youth and women.

“In this connection, Egypt and Nigeria have been redefining their longstanding historic ties.

“Our peoples and governments are tapping into their enormous economic and cultural potentials as we envisage the next chapter of our solid partnership. From security, countering-terrorism, to energy, communications, digital transformation, trade, and infrastructure, to agriculture, health care and modern education, our two countries are proceeding with determination on the path to forge a modern and forward-looking partnership anchored in our common values and shared objectives.

“Against this backdrop, we are gearing up – together with our Nigerian colleagues – to hold the third round of our bilateral political consultations in Abuja during the last quarter of this year. We also look forward to the upcoming meeting of the Egypt-Nigeria Business Council in Lagos next-door September, which will help connect the business communities of our two countries, providing them with the opportunity to explore possible ways and means to enhance our bilateral trade and investments relations.”
