*Urges Abe Not to Allow Wike to Destroy His Political Fortunes and Future

 

*Exposes the Latest Wike’s Strategy to stay in the Brick House Till 2023

 

*Describes Amaechi as a Moving Train

 

Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze erstwhile nPDP Spokesperson, APC Chieftain and  an ally of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi the Minister of Transportation  describes the successful concluded Convention of All Progressives Congress (APC) as the formal death knell for Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the envisgsed implosion of the party was not actualised.

 

He commended the Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara and other defunct New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) leaders for not only attending the historical convention but keeping faith with the principles that made us to join this progressives Train positioned to take Nigeria to the promise land.  The fact remains that anything less than APC speaks doom for any of us leaving the party to rejoin a party that have caused a lot of harm to our nation no matter the amount of enticement Chief Eze maintained.

 

Chief Eze in the press statement he signed and circulated on Monday further described the peaceful conduct of the convention and the calibre of leaders elected to pilot the affairs of the party as the beginning of the actualisation of the vision of the founding fathers of Nigeria. He pleaded with Nigerians to keep faith with the party seeing the efforts of President Buhari to sort out some of the challenges currently facing us as a nation.

 

He commended Chief John Odigie Oyegun the immediate past National Chairman of APC for putting the party on a sound footing which Comrade Adams Oshimhole will build upon.

 

According to him: “With the experience, sagacity, greatness and managerial ability acquired by this visionary and erudite leader both during his days as President of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and two term Governor of Edo State and most importantly for retiring permanently from politics one of the most colourful politicians in Nigeria Mr Fix It, High Chief Tony Anenih, I am convinced that APC current control of 24 States will be expanded to at least to 30 States come 2019.”

He expressed appreciation to all the party leaders who worked assiduously to ensure the success of the convention, thereby making the envisaged implosion of the party after the Convention a mere conjecture of haters of the enviable future Nigerians are set to enjoy with extra four years of the Presidency of President Muhammadu Buhari.

 

Chief Eze described Rt Hon Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi as his bosom friend, associate, leader and brother and with the turn up of events as regards the convention, Amaechi has proved that he is truly a moving Train and the Commander General of APC in the old Eastern Nigeria.

 

Continuing he said: “With the failed attempt by Senator Magnus Ngei Abe representing the South East Senatorial Zone collaborating with Governor Wike to stop Rivers APC from presenting elected delegates during the concluded National Convention of APC coupled with the fact that Abe and others have to collect their Delegates’ tags from Hon. Ojukaye Flag-Amachree the authentic Rivers State Chairman simply demonstrates that Amaechi is in not only in control of both the Rivers State APC structure but the structures of the party in other States in the South – South and South East that don’t have APC Governors.”

 

Chief Eze went further to state that in case the above scenario doesn’t make any sense to his good friend Senator Abe, the fact that Dr. Victor T. Giadom an ally of Amaechi floored Dr Mike Nwilagi whom Senator  Magnus Abe fielded to become the National Deputy Secretary of APC and Hon. Dave Okumgba flooring Hon. Stephen Ezekwem former Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly another of Abe’s candidate to become the South South Secretary of the party it  becomes very glaring to every watcher of Rivers State politics that Amaechi has  proved that he is not only the Lion of Niger Delta politics but has become the undisputable leader of APC in both South -South and South East.

With these facts, I appeal to my friend, Senator Abe to rescind further attempts to escalate whatever is the dispute between him and his true brother, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and bury the thought of thinking that Wike can offer him any leverage so far the Rivers State politics is concerned knowing the number of Rivers State heavy weight politicians that Wike have reduced to Lilliputian and inconsequential personalities and assembled them into his cathedral of Personal Assistants.

 

He noted that: “Abe is one of our brightest politicians from Rivers State and to allow Wike to lure him into this cathedral will be calamitous for us all so I implore him to get back his politics back on track and stop any further attempt that will allihinate him politically in Rivers State.”

 

“We all know that the major goal of Gov Wike at the moment is how to destroy APC and cause her not to present a gubernatorial candidate come 2019 but to use one of our briggtest sons to achieve this sinister mission to get him to stay in the Brick House for another four years will be a disaster and must be prevented no matter the odds” Chief Eze declared.

 

In conclusion, Chief Eze appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to act on this statement by the national leader of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as a matter of urgency to enable us collectively achieve our common vision for Nigeria  – “Before closing, I must mention something of high concern. Our progressive agenda has been hampered because elements of the PDP remain embedded in the many agencies and ministries so crucial to daily governance. They have been as a fifth column, undermining our policies at every turn. While impeding reform, they also plot the comeback of their reactionary brethren to power. This is something we should no longer abide. Our party teems with competent, reform-minded people who would perform admirably in these positions. It is time to sweep out the PDP remnants and put in position people, who actually care about the people.”

Meet The Man Behind Bill For Boko Haram Reintegration Agency

Published

on

Ibrahim Gaidam

In recent times, there have been calls for the reintegration of repentant members of Boko Haram.

The calls got more weight recently with Yobe-born Senator Ibrahim Gaidam sponsoring a “Bill for an Act to establish a National Agency for the education, de-radicalization, rehabilitation and reintegration of repentant insurgents”.

According to the lawmaker, the bill was sponsored to help repentant insurgents re-enter mainstream politics, religion, and society.

In a recent write-up, Gaidam explained his reason for sponsoring the bill:

 

“Bill for an Act to establish a National Agency for the education, de-radicalization, rehabilitation and reintegration of repentant insurgents would promote reconciliation and national unity.

“The agency when established will provide an avenue for rehabilitating, de-radicalizing, and reintegrating the defectors, repentant and forcefully conscripted members of the insurgent group Boko Haram to make them useful members of the society.

“Provide an avenue for reconciliation and promote national security.

“Provide an-open-door and encouragement for other members of the group who are still engaged in the insurgency to abandon the group, especially in the face of the military pressure.

“Allow the government to derive insider-information about the insurgency group for greater understanding of the group and its inner workings.

“Gaining a greater understanding of the insurgents will enable the government to study the needs of de-radicalization effort, improve the process and address the immediate concerns of violence.

“Enable Government to use the defectors to fight the unrepentant insurgents.

“Help disintegrate the violent and poisonous ideology that the group spreads as the program will allow some repentant defectors or suspect terrorists to express remorse over their actions repent and recant their violent doctrine and in the long run, re-enter mainstream politics, religion and society.

“If defectors told their stories and were made more public, their experiences would play a key role in countering Terrorist propaganda, which in turn would lessen the appeal of joining the group.”

The Senator representing Yobe East further stated that establishment of the agency will help the Federal Government cut the cost of incarceration, render extremist movements obsolete by undermining the foundations upon which the movements were built and also make repentant terrorists become useful members of the society.

 

He added:

 

“In view of the fact that the Boko Haram insurgency is becoming increasingly aggressive since its inception in 2009, marked by extreme brutality and explicit targeting of civilians…it has become necessary for us to go back to the drawing board and adopt an alternative approach, in addition to the military option which has so far performed significantly well.

“There is no doubt that many members of the insurgents’ group have defected and many more are willing to repent given a window of opportunity and this is confirmed by many organizations including NGO’s that have unalloyed access to the Boko Haram.

“There is the need for a more strategic and comprehensive approach to entice those members of the group who, after realizing the futility of the course they are pursuing have eventually decided to voluntarily lay down their arms and chose the path of peace.

“Hence, the need for the establishment of the National Agency for the Rehabilitation, De-radicalization and reintegration of repentant insurgents to accommodate the defectors.

“The agency when established shall be charged with the responsibility of the planning, designing and organizing specialized programs aimed at deradicalizing, rehabilitating and reintegrating defectors and repentant insurgents.

“Those who have become weary of the perpetual violence and have voluntarily laid down their arms and defected from the group will be accepted and rehabilitated using various tools of deradicalization, rehabilitation and reintegration.

“In contrast, those captured active in the battlefields will be required to, in addition to the psychological therapy, participate in the criminal justice process.

“In dealing with the insurgency, Nigerian Government needs to introduce both preventive and corrective measures in addressing violent extremism.”
