Sen. Attai Aidoko enlists thugs to harass delegates at Kogi East PDP primary election

Candidate
Information at our disposals has revealed that a senatorial aspirant under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi East Senatorial District, Senator Attai Adoko has enlisted thugs to disrupt the forthcoming primaries of the party, this newspaper gathered.Reliable informants alleged that Aidoko, who is currently representing the senatorial district in the red chamber, has taken his re-election bid to an unimaginable level as he feared that the constituents no longer needed his services.

According to sources, Senator Aidoko has perfected a grand plan to engage the services of thugs to harass delegates that are not committed to him thereby forcing himself on the people.

It was alleged further that the senator also planned to refuse other aspirants access to the venue of the election and that he is working with some powerful elements in the party to achieve his aim.

We were further informed that Senator Aidoko planned to cause commotion if things don’t go his way, and that he has told those close to him that he would threaten officials and their family members into submission so that he could have his way.

“Senator Aidoko is desperate to return to the senate chamber in 2019 at all cost. He is using all within his power to get the ticket of the party despite his unpopularity.

“We are tired of him as our senator. He has been there twice, but we cannot see what he has achieved. Even at that, let him submit himself for primaries. If the people want him he would see and if they don’t want him, then he should go back home and allow us to try another person. Enough is enough,” said a reliable source.

The source recalled that the youths in Kogi East Senatorial District had earlier rejected the re-election of Senator Attai Aidoko as the 2019 General Elections approach.

He stressed that Aidoko is the longest-serving federal lawmaker from Kogi East, but that ironically, “the worst amongst all, as he has serially failed us in terms of good legislation, provision of amenities through constituency projects and youth empowerment. Aidoko should be told the naked truth. He must be told that the seat of Kogi East doesn’t belong to his family neither any godfather.”

The youths had revealed that Senator Aidoko has spent 12 years both in lower and upper chambers of the National Assembly without anything to show for it, adding that it was under his watch that Ibaji oil wells were ceded to Anambra State.

“Senator Aidoko has provided poor representation, starting from his days in the House of Representatives, where he represented Ankpa/Omala/Olamaboro Federal Constituency from 2003 to 2011 and served as Chairman, House Committee on Federal Capital Territory, and later as Chairman, Senate Committee on SEGS.

“As a Senator, he can’t point at one single thing as achievement that we can call his Constituency project.

“He is only after his personal interest and that of his godfather which is not good for our people in need of development. In fact, Aidoko is a liability on the good people of Kogi East and he has no political relevance in both the region and at the national level,Attai Aidoko as Chairman Senate Committee on SDG sold contracts and did virtually all the contracts using proxies they stated.He’s that self centred “they alleged.

The youths noted that Senator Aidoko hails from Ugbamaka-Igah in Olamaboro Local government and that as the Chairman, Senate Committee on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) there is “no project that has come to our land but other senators buy contracts from Senator Aidoko for the interest of their constituencies and he converts the proceeds into buying exotic cars for personal use amid the untold suffering of our people.

The youths stressed that in 2019 ‘by God’s grace,’ Kogi East must decide their future.

The youths however, urged Kogi East youths and other constituents to resolve “to rally round a common cause that will ultimately produce Dr. Victor Alewo Adoji as the next Senator “to represent us come 2019 by God’s grace.”

They stated that Victor Adoji has the requisite qualities to take development to Kogi East and that he is a man with vision and determination to get things done properly for Igala people as a senator.

A chieftain of the PDP in the senatorial district however, warned that “Senator Aidoko’s plans would be resisted with all powers and he would not have his way this time around no matter what happens.”

IBB Not Dead, Spokeperson, Kassim Afegbua Says

Published

on

Ibrahim Babangida

Kassim Afegbua, spokesman to Ibrahim Babangida, has denied rumours that he is dead.

Afegbua made the claim on Sunday while reacting to speculation that the 78-year-old who ruled Nigeria as a military leader untill 1993 had passed on.

He said this is about the third time Babangida has been rumoured dead in 2019 alone.

His statement reads:

“It has become consistent fake news for quite some time now wishing our own IBB, the one we easily refer to as ‘the last don’ of Nigeria politics, dead. The “fake news bill” would be a suitable response to this category of fake news carrier.

“IBB is very much alive and bubbling. He just started attending to friends and associates who came to see him today, Sunday, 15th December, 2019 right here at his Minna Hilltop mansion. He is full of life and in his characteristic bubbling mood.

“May Allah forgive those who wish IBB dead. God is the giver and taker of life, not humans. Death, as the irrevocable end of all creation, will surely come to everyone some day and at the appointed time and hour, but to deliberately spread fake news and wish someone dead, is to take humanity to another bizarre level. May Allah forgive them

“IBB, by the special grace of Allah, the omniscient and omnipotent One, shall live to fulfil his journey and destiny in life, to the consternation of those who are always wishing him dead. This is about the third time this year.

“We wish to thank those who took time to reach out to us, home and abroad, to find out the truth. We thank you all for your love, care and concern. May Allah grant us all good health, sound mind and long life.”

CAN Calls For Removal Of Tanko Muhammad As CJN

Published

on

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called for the removal of Tanko Muhammad as the Chief Justice of Nigeria.

This follows his call for the amendment of the constitution to accomodate more aspects of the Shari’a law.

Muhammad urged academics to champion the cause of redesigning the methods of teaching Shari’a law, while pointing out that implementation of his suggestions would be more feasible if universities give the Shari’a law its own faculty.

Hiwever, reacting to the comment credited to the CJN, CAN raised an alarm of a plan to islamize Nigeria and backed its claim by pointing out that the President’s recent appointment was in favour of a certain religion.

The Christian group also called for the removal of Tanko and the Chief Justice of Nigeria over the comment it described as reprehensible, reckless and insensitive.

According to the CAN, the CJN is religiously compromised and no longer trustworthy in the dispensation of justice.

A statement by CAN President, His Eminence, Rev Dr. Samson Ayokunle which issued by his Special Assistant (Media & Communications) Pastor Adebayo Oladeji reads:

 

“Our attention has been drawn to the advocacy of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammed for the amendment of the Constitution with a view to adding more Sharia contents.

“Justice Muhammed reportedly made the call while declaring open the 20th Annual Judges Conference at the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria Faculty of Law’s Moot Court.

“We have not seen the full text of the paper presented and we learnt the Chief Justice was represented at the event. So, it is difficult to know if the speech was that of the Chief Justice or his representative.

“We don’t believe that such a reckless and provocative statement could be made by the number one judicial officer in the country. How could the CJN say ‘We as Muslims have the numbers to amend the constitution’? It is not possible. It is either he was misquoted outright or quoted out of context.

“Asking for constitutional amendment with a view to adding more to the Sharia contents is ill-timed, provocative and unacceptable. Was the Chief Justice of Nigeria put there deliberately for the promotion of Islamic matters or to be unbiased and fair judge for all irrespective of religion? It appears from this statement (if he made it) that he was put there for Islamisation agenda.

“Those in government are warned not to use the cheap popularity or acceptance they seek to set two religious practitioners against each other.

“This type of statement, if true, is enough for the President of the country to initiate the removal of this Chief Justice from office. He is religiously biased and partisan. We have no more confidence in him. And we once again reiterate our advocacy for religious balanced in the appointments that are being made by the President.

“Lopsided appointments are direct contradictions to some portions of the 1999 Constitution (as amended). These include but not limited to Sections 10, 13 (3-4), 15 (2) (d) and (4). It is widely believed that no country survives two civil wars. Our leaders should be mindful of the complexities of the people they are leading.

“There have been Presidents, who are Christians. During their time, there was never a time they promoted their religion at the expense of others. Our leaders should stop paying lip service to the unity and peace of the country.

“Do we take it that what he said is the official position of this regime on inter-faith relations? Why has no one in leadership, either, the Executive or Legislative arm of government taken him up on it? The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) is eagerly awaiting the rebuttal of the Chief Justice of Nigeria on the unfortunate and unguarded utterances that can provoke a religious crisis in the country.”
