Borno State’s Deputy Governor, Umar Usman Kadafur, led an All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign team to Chibok town in preparation for the upcoming House of Assembly bye election scheduled for Saturday. The event saw the presence of several notable APC figures, including the APC Deputy National Chairman for the North, Ali Bukar Dalori, and APC State Chairman, Hon. Bello Ayuba, among others.

Addressing a large crowd of enthusiastic supporters, Deputy Governor Kadafur urged the people of Chibok Local Government to come out in large numbers and vote for the APC House of Assembly candidate, Pogu Lawan. He assured them that the administration of Governor Babagana Umara Zulum is committed to delivering more dividends of democracy, particularly in the areas of youth empowerment, education, and basic amenities.

Deputy Governor Kadafur emphasized the administration’s achievements in terms of infrastructural development, not only in Chibok but across the entire state. He promised that more developmental projects are in the works in the coming years. He encouraged the people of Chibok to support Governor Zulum’s administration by ensuring a resounding victory for the APC in the bye election.

APC Deputy National Chairman for the North, Ali Dalori, APC State Chairman, Bello Ayuba, and APC State Vice Chairman for Zone C, Yerima Aliyu, all took turns addressing the crowd during the campaign rally. They urged the people of Chibok to consider the significant achievements of the APC-led administration and to reciprocate the gesture by voting for Pogu Lawan.

The APC leaders reiterated that the party remains the strongest and most promising in the country. They expressed gratitude for the warm reception received from the people of Chibok and expressed confidence in the party’s victory in the upcoming election.

During the rally, thousands of individuals, including the local government PDP Party chairman, decamped from the PDP to the ruling APC. The decampees were warmly welcomed by the deputy governor and other APC party stalwarts, with a promise of equal treatment within the party.

The bye election in Chibok is necessitated by the vacancy resulting from the death of the winner of the 2023 House of Assembly election, Late Dr. Nuhu Clark. As per constitutional requirements, the bye election will fill the vacant seat.

By: Bodunrin Kayode

A Plateau elder Ambassador Yahaya Kwande has described the just concluded re-run election into the national assembly as a Triumph of Democracy.

In a release titled Congratulations to the Winners of Plateau State Bye Elections of February 3, 2024, he noted that the entire exercise was a victory to the people of the state.

“With great joy and profound gratitude, I extend my heartfelt congratulations to the newly elected Senator, (Plateau North Senatorial District), Prince Pam Mwadkwon Dachungyang, and the Member of the House of Representatives, (Jos North/Bassa Constituency), Hon. Daniel Asama, on their resounding victory in the recently concluded bye election held in Plateau State.

“Your triumph is a testament to the true spirit of democracy and the unwavering support of the people.

“I have no doubt that both Prince Pam Mwadkon and Hon. Daniel Asama will live up to the aspirations and expectations of the voters, as they embark on this noble responsibility of representing their constituents. May your tenure be marked by dedication, integrity, and a relentless pursuit of progress for our beloved state and nation.

“As we celebrate this momentous milestone, let us not forget the challenges we faced during the post-2023 elections period. It is my sincere hope that Plateau State will swiftly recover from the divisions and tussles that marred our unity. Let us unite as one, for the strength of our state lies in our togetherness.

“It is essential for the government and the people to undertake immediate measures to reconcile and bridge the gaps that have emerged. We must never forget that every citizen, irrespective of their religion or ethnicity, is entitled to their fundamental rights. The use of religion as a tool of disfranchisement must cease; we must affirm that citizenship rights are not conditional on faith.

“Let us also strive to recapture the lost glory of our state, when Jos was hailed as the political Mecca of Nigeria, attracting momentous political events and embracing politicians from all shades and ideologies. We can revive this legacy by nurturing an environment that exudes peace, openness, and security for all. Together, we can restore Plateau State as a beacon of democratic excellence.

“In conclusion, I express my utmost optimism for the future of Plateau State. I extend my deepest appreciation to all who peacefully participated in the bye election, be it as candidates or enthusiastic supporters. Our journey towards progress and development continues, and I am confident that we will stand united, empowered by the unwavering spirit of our people.” said Kwande.

The National President of the APC Initiative for Good Governance (APC-IGG), Ambassador Musa Mohammed Tsoken, has commended President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for intervening to ease the hardships affecting Nigerians.

In a message he issued to newsmen in Abuja on Monday, Ambassador Tsoken described President Tinubu as a leader with listening war by giving a marching order for the release of different food items to ease hardships for the people of Nigeria, which is a good initiative.

”APC-IGG has recognized what Mr. President has done in order to ease the hardship affecting the people on the food price hike, which is very good foresight from our leader. We therefore thank all those who have helped with the implementation of the process to release the food items from the federal government reserves across the country for their well-deserved thought.” The statement was added.

Ambassador Musa Mohammed Tsoken reassured the people of Nigeria that the APC Initiative for Good Governance would continue to work selflessly in order to ensure that Nigeria is progressive under the present democratic dispensation without bias.

Day Senator Ahmed Lawan distributes empowerment materials in Yobe

Day Senator Ahmed Lawan distributes empowerment materials in Yobe

By: Yahaya Wakili

In terms of federal constituency projects by a federal lawmaker, the massive empowerment and entrepreneurship materials that the President of the 9th Senate, His Excellency Distinguished, Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan, Ph.D., GCON, Sardaunan Bade, completed on Monday, December 25, 2023, are unprecedented in Yobe state history. It is the stake-in-trade of an ordinary Nigerian politician, but Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan is unparalleled in Yobe State history, and I believe he would approach things differently.

Since Nigerian democracy was restored in 1999, no federal elected politician in the whole Northeast region of the country has ever had the wealth, expertise, connections, or experience that he possesses. Thousands of people in Nigeria, the Northeast, and Yobe State as a whole were drawn to the massive empowerment that took place.

The empowerment initiative has been the largest intervention over the previous six years. For the Yobe North Senatorial District, Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan also kicked off a job-free medical outreach program and an animal livestock vaccination program. He has touched the lives of those in his constituency, and empowering and providing a sustainable means of livelihood for the Yobe North people is not a new deal for the 9th Senate president; in fact, it has become an annual event over the past six years. The residents of Sardaunan Bade’s constituency are no longer impoverished. 

By the grace of God, Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan’s empowerment is the result of numerous occurrences that have occurred in the past and will occur in the future. The exceptional work of distinguished senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan is unmatched in Yobe state history. I have never witnessed empowerment of that magnitude in one fell swoop.

Distinguished Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan has changed the narratives compared to past years, something no senator or member of the National Assembly from Yobe state has ever done to his senatorial constituency.

It has become evident that he is devoted to significant empowerment—not just lip service. If given the chance, I am confident he will duplicate this exceptional accomplishment throughout the state. We also hope that other federal lawmakers from Yobe State will take similar action.

Six local government areas—Bade, Karasuwa, Jakusko, Yusufari, Nguru, and Machina—combined to form the Yobe North Senatorial district, which has its headquarters in Gashu’a. Of the 6,766 beneficiaries of the mega empowerment, the most intriguing aspect of the empowerment distribution process is that each beneficiary is identified by name, ward, phone number, and the kind of items he plans to collect. Thousands of attendees have also shared their interesting experiences with the way and manner in which the empowerments were distributed.

During his four years as Senate President, the Distinguished Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan, Sardaunan Bade, the ninth Senate President, did not face any impeachment cases; the Executive successfully completed its term. 6, 766 constituents are empowered by Senator Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan with automobiles, motorcycles, farm equipment, and other business supplies.

A total of 2,940 sprayers, 12 Peugeot 406, 12 Peugeot 307, 360 motorcycles, 2,226 water pumps, 54 Sharon Buses, 2 fire fighting vehicles, and 6 land cruiser jeeps were among the equipment. There were also 13 rice mills, 30 rice planters, 302 harvesters, and twelve tractors.

420 Keke NAPEP, 804 refrigerators, 324 small harvesters, 306 tricycle carriers, 420 grinding machines, 2,340 pots and stoves, 10, 18-seater buses, 1080 swing machines, 120 deep freezers, 180 generators, and 10 transformers are a few more examples of the other items.
