Nigeria’s VP: Kashim Shettima in 100 Days

By: James Bwala

The renewed hope agreements, according to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, are a partnership for a better future for Nigeria and Nigerians. Nigerian citizens have been kept informed of the strategy and plan this administration is implementing to fulfill the Tinubu administration’s goal of providing Nigerians with the country of their dreams both at home and abroad.

The First Lady of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, recently advised Nigerians to have patience with the administration and to maintain faith that things are progressing for the greater good. She refrained from filling her mouth with justifications or placing blame on specific individuals or cabals. Senator Remi was unwavering in her stance since she had faith in the current situation and thought everything would work out.

The actions being taken by this administration show how a government that is responsible for more than 200 million Nigerians functions. In addition to the positive appointments that have already been made, I am concentrating on the new administration’s torchbearer, who will travel the breadth and length of land and sea to forge stronger diplomatic ties and sell the onions that will mend the wounds caused by the previous administration in order to create a Nigeria of hope.

I have been closely observing Kashim Shettima’s activities as the vice president of Nigeria for the past 100 days. Kashim Shettima has shown a special calling with such ambition to shape the nation in line with the dream of renewed hope that patches the long night with horrible dreams of deaths and corruptions as witnessed in the historical books of governance in Nigeria. In the last 100 days, he has redirected dreams from thinking climate change to the 15th BRICS SUMMIT.

The theme of “renewed hope,” which the new administration is promoting to Nigerians starting on May 29, 2023, never stops reminding our citizens of the responsibility we share as citizens to develop Nigeria for our children and our children’s children. I’ve observed a spike in speakers over the past 100 days who have appeared on TV and in print media to criticize the administration from the perspective of their own opposition mindset, which directs their thought.

But I’d like to paraphrase a comment from an anonymous source who stated, for those criticizing the leaders: “This is how we are in our various corners. Our society has produced political leaders. We could perhaps fix the country if you fixed your corner. Hopeful Nigerians, who shared the same dream of renewed hope, are standing in prayer with the administration as the Tinubu and Shettima administrations get off to a fast start on the first day of their inauguration.

The Tinubu administration is taking steps to give Nigerians at home and abroad the promise of hope, not as defined in the words of the opposition but in the real sense of it for all Nigerians, even those who are already criticizing the administration in the name of selfish and evil desires. Vice President Kashim Shettima has been everywhere his duties have required him to be, and his words have been very piercing.

On the topic of “BRICS and Africa: Partnership for Mutually Accelerated Growth, Sustainable Development, and Inclusive Multilateralism,” Vice President Shettima addressed a sizable crowd that included the Presidents of China, India, Brazil, South Africa, and Russia’s Foreign Minister. He said the theme “underscores the profound realization that the cornerstone of stability within our intricate multipolar landscape lies in fostering developmental partnerships.”

Shettima claims that “the new government, which began in the last 100 days, is examining the variables and evaluating the scope and level of regional and global cooperation to pursue in order to establish Nigeria as the desired friend and partner. He declared, “We seek partnership that offers opportunities for trade, prosperity, and shared progress for all without marginalization based on geography, race, or legitimate sovereign affiliations.

The Vice President expressed gratitude on behalf of Nigeria to the government and people of the Republic of South Africa for hosting the 15th BRICS Summit, noting that “the BRICS-Plus Dialogue and the BRICS-Africa Outreach provide a unique platform for discussion, note comparison, and exploration of a mutually beneficial partnership that could evolve into a novel driving force for development.”

He said, “The international global governance structure to which we currently adhere was established prior to the independence of the African continent and many countries in the global south. So, it’s indeed imperative to reform global governance to align with the realities of today’s world and to acknowledge the necessity for partnerships that ensure shared prosperity, inclusivity, and sustainable development.”

According to the Vice President, Nigeria, under President Bola Tinubu, “is committed to shaping and fortifying the global framework and governance concerning all major international issues, particularly in the fields of finance, climate change, bridging the digital divide, adopting a comprehensive strategy towards debt alleviation, addressing food and energy insecurities, instituting post-pandemic recovery measures, and fostering financial inclusion within developing countries.”

Vice President Shettima spoke to his audience about Nigeria’s relationships with the global south and emphasized how important all facets of south-south cooperation are to Nigeria. He also said that the global south is currently facing unmatched challenges.

“We must develop climate change solutions and put in place security measures to stop and deter international crime, terrorism, and cyberattacks. Young people are unemployed at a high rate, and disruptive natural disasters are a constant threat. We now have the opportunity to reevaluate the difficulties we face jointly as well as those that our partners are dealing with,” he said.

I could go on and on about all the different subjects the vice president touched on. I applaud Kashim Shettima and Tinubu for their positive vision that aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030 and the African Union’s Agenda 2063. I believe that certain challenges are imminent in developing solutions for nation-building and that they are relevant to our continental and national development aspirations.

May 29 : Borno APC Laud Gov Zulum For Landmark Achievements In One Year

By Francis Okoye

The All Progressives Congress ( APC ) , Borno state Chapter has commended the state Governor, Babagana Zulum for the execution of over 100 people oriented solid capital projects in the first one year of his second tenure in office.

The state’s party Chairman of APC , Hon. Ayuba Bello made the commendation on Tuesday in Maiduguri in an interview with Journalists on the Governor’s performance ahead of the one year anniversary of his second term in office coming up on 29th of May, 2024.

Hon. Bello who is on record the first ruling APC Chairman to be elected from the minority southern part of Borno state since the inception of democracy, added that the popularity of Governor Zulum across the country is based on his hardwork, respect for the poor, commitment and high sense of responsibility towards governance.

He said even if one is from the opposition party, with humility and maturity, such person would agree that Zulum’s administration has performed greatly in the past one year since his projects are seen on ground.

The state party Chairman said,” As far as Iam concerned and the APC Chairman in Borno state is concerned, if you ask me to rate the performance of his Excellency for the past one year, it is exemplary, he has excelled in infrastructural performance.

” When you go round the country, you hardly find a Governor, who had done credibly well in terms of infrastructural development like Zulum’s administration. If somebody can carry out over 100 people oriented solid capital projects life on ground, honestly speaking, he deserve commendation.

” Even if you are not in APC, if you humility and maturity of mind, you would agree with me that this person has done greatly well. When you go round to the 27 local government areas of the state with exception of Guzamala, you will identify 10 to 20 capital projects that were executed by Governor Zulum.

” And they are people oriented projects, minor projects such as drilling of boreholes are not even counted. We are very proud of him, as a party, we are solidly behind him.”

On his election as chairman of the party from the minority southern part of Borno being the first in history, he said the party did it to balance the equation of leadership and giving the other side of the state a sense of belonging.

He said he enjoys followership and loyalty from all party members across the state, adding that structure put in place which is visible across the 27 local government areas of the state is reason the party would continue to dominate power in every election year.

Re-run election into the national assembly, a Triumph of Democracy – Kwande

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.
