Christians and the entire people of Bassa Local government have been urged to tread the footsteps of Jesus Christ so that peace can reign permanently in the area.

In his Christmas message to the Christians and the entire people of the local government area, the Administrator, Honourable Samuel Alumka, stated that the period of Christmas should be devoted to sobber reflection to enable them take stock of their spiritual and material gains and loses.

He called on them to tolerate one another despite ethnic and religious differences which, he said, should be a unifying factor for the accelerated development of the area.

Alumka called on the elites and the stakeholders from the area to come together for genuine reconciliation to move the area ahead.

According to the Administrator, “for any meaningful development to take place, peace and tranquility must be established as no any positive achievement can be recorded in a rancorous atmosphere”.

He maintained that unless “we go back to God to seek His forgiveness and practice legitimate ways of lively hood, development will continue to be far from the area”.

Hon. Alumka, who congratulated the Christians for the celebration of Christmas , used the occasion to mobolise fisherman and farmers from the area to redouble their efforts to increase their yields and income.

Some key followers of Sen Ishaku Abbo of Adamawa North District have declared a shifting of loyalty to Governor Ahmadu Fintiri.

Although, Abbo is in the same Peoples Democratic Party ((PDP) with the state governor, Abbo has been a critic of both the party and the governor, waging an unending battle against both.

In an action indicating disaffection against him by some within his own support base on Friday, however, many among his supporters visited Governor Fintiri, pledging their loyalty to him.

Members of the delegation to the Government House in Yola, led by Abbo Support Group’s former Coordinator, Peter Ishaya Kwache, told Fintiri that he now had their “complete shift of loyalty”.

Mr. Kwache said they were members of the PDP, who worked to ensure the success of all candidates of the party in the 2019 general election, particularly Abbo, but that they had for a while been at a loss about Abbo’s relentless criticism of the party and the government led by Fintiri.

The Member representing Ughelli North, Ughelli South and Udu federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Francis Waive, has described the Water Resources Bill as a Northern agenda to tighten the noose on the Southern part of the country.

Hon Waive who is a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC from Delta State in a statement, weekend while expressing concerns on the bill, explained that though some provisions in the bill are welcoming and warm, because of the nature of governance and the tendencies to misuse powers in the country, “we cannot at this point in time properly handle this kind of a law without causing more harm than good.”

According to him, “One will be tempted to ask, what is the intention behind this law? Is it really for the general good of the Nigerian people as it states? How well has the various natural resources been managed for the general good?”

Speaking further, he said: “The oil from the Niger Delta region has not positively impacted the life of the people from the Niger Delta and the one who bears the impact of the exploration activities.

“The various River Basins which are currently under the control of the government, has not been properly managed; instead it has been grossly politicized, how then can the government manage and control all the water bodies in the country.

“According to public opinion this law is a Northern agenda to further tighten the noose on the South, because obviously the majority of the states from the middle belt down south are surrounded by water. There is also a high resemblance of intentions of some provisions of this act with that of the unsuccessful RUGA bill.

“In my opinion, the bill is of no immediate benefit to the generality of the populace at this point in time, plus we have not developed enough as a country to be able to properly manage all the resources we have to now begin to look at water. Water is the least of our problems as a country.”
