Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, has hit harder on his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike over faulted him for dumping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Mr Umahi had said he defected from the PDP because of the party’s injustice against his South-east zone. But Mr Wike said the claim is not true.
Mr Wike’s accused Mr Umahi of being unfair to the PDP, which gave him the governorship ticket in 2015 and again in 2019.
According to Mr Wike, “committed members of PDP were not surprised that Governor Umahi on Tuesday formally defected to the APC, which he has for a while been fraternising with.
“My friend, Umahi, wants to be president. There is no problem about that.
But Mr Umahi attacked Mr Wike, describing him as a dictator.
Mr Umahi in an interview with Arise TV, revealed that Mr Wike is single-handedly controlling the affairs of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, autocratically which has made governors on the platform unhappy with him.
“Wike must know he is a dictator; he must know that one person cannot be called a crowd.
“Wike must know that a lot of governors in the PDP are very sad with him,” Umahi added.
According to Umahi, Wike single-handedly made Secondus the PDP Chairman and tried to impose one of his own as the minority leader in the House of Representatives.
“He must know that there is nothing that happens in the PDP without his authorization.”
Umahi warned Gov. Wike not to clash with him because it will be dangerous.
He warned Wike to focus on the party and stop demonstrating dictatorship traits by attacking him.
“Wike has called the PDP committee all kinds of unprintable names, and I have asked Gov. Wike, he is my friend, and let’s not take on ourselves because it will be very dangerous.
“Focus on the party, the party does not belong to him and this is nothing personal but Wike is demonstrating the dictatorship tendencies in him by taking on me a fellow governor.”
Bello Meets Former President Obasanjo
Kogi State governor, His Excellency, Yahaya Bello met with the former president Olusegun Obasanjo on Sunday in Abuja. In the meeting which was held behind a closed door, the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Yahaya Bello, Mohammed Onogwu disclosed that his principal and the former president had a fruitful discussion.
The Chief Press Secretary stated that Obasanjo urged the governor of Kogi State to sustain his effort in providing security for his state noting Kogi is central to the nation’s peace and development. Former President Obasanjo noted that the fight against insecurity should have everybody on board, stressing that governors should involve everyone to ensure insecurity is curtailed in Nigeria.
While appreciating the Governor for his developmental effort in the state especially in the areas of youth and women inclusion in politics and governance, infrastructure, health and education, Obasanjo charged Governor Bello to continue to be an advocate for youth involvement in governance.
Responding, Governor Bello thanked President Olusegun Obasanjo for his statesman’s role, fatherly disposition and wealth of wisdom which the young leaders are privileged to tap from.
The Governor noted that though his state is surrounded by 10 other states and the FCT making it the nexus between the South and North, West and East of Nigeria, Kogi, one of the 19 Northern States, stands in stoic defence against criminal elements thus gaining acclaim as one of the safest in the country.
Bello assured former President Obasanjo that he will not rest in the fight to ensure total safety for his people and will continue to do his best to ensure his electoral promises are fulfilled. He prayed God to continue to protect the statesman with good health and long life.
Again, Governor Sule Makes Case For CPC, Nasarawa To Emerge As Next APC National Chairman, Wadada Donates 5 Vehicles To The Party Chairmen
Nasarawa State Governor, Engineer Abdullahi Sule, has again appealed to the hierarchy of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), to consider the CPC and Nasarawa State, in the choice of the party’s next national chairman.
Engineer Sule made the appeal during a grand reception in honour of decampees from the PDP, APGA, ZLP and prominent sons and daughters of Mada Nation from the Western Senatorial zone, in Keffi, on Saturday.
The Governor specifically called on the national leadership of the APC to consider the CPC, being the only legacy party that is yet to produce the national chairman of the party.
Engineer Sule equally appealed to the party leaders to consider Nasarawa State because it was the only state that provided the CPC a platform leading to the merger in 2013 that gave birth to the APC.
“Two of the legacy parties, ACN and ANPP each produced two national chairmen of the APC. The only legacy party that is yet to produce the national chairman is the CPC,” he stated.
According to the Governor, once the CPC is allowed to produce the next chairman of the APC during its forthcoming national convention, it’s only fair to consider Nasarawa State.
Engineer Sule emphasized that the immediate past governor of the state, Senator Umaru Tanko Al-makura, played a critical role leading the then CPC into the merger which brought about the APC.
Speaking on the event, the Governor welcomed the decampees into the fold of the ruling party, reiterating his determination to carry everyone along.
He explained that the reason why members and supporters of opposition parties in the state are trooping to the APC may not be unconnected with the fact that, there is unity and togetherness within the ruling party, which is bringing much desired development to the state.
Engineer Sule promised to be fair and just to all, irrespective of the time of joining the APC.
The Governor used the opportunity of the rally to show appreciation to Hon. Ahmed Aliyu Wadada, for purchasing five vehicles to be distributed to the party chairmen in Keffi, Nasarawa, Kokona, Toto and Karu local government areas.
Engineer Sule also appreciated the first executive governor of the state, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, for organizing the reception ceremony.
In a goodwill message, Senator Adamu, assured the decampees of fair treatment while also reiterating the decision of the western zone to support the second term bid of the incumbent governor.
He commended Engineer Sule for his people oriented leadership, transparency and good governance, which is translating into much needed development.
On his part, Hon Wadada likened the mass exodus of members of the opposition to the APC to the biblical exodus from Egypt to the Promised Land, with members of the opposition rushing to join the ruling party because of the inclusiveness being demonstrated by Engineer Sule.
Hon Wadada announced a donation of five vehicles to be distributed to the party chairmen across the zone.
Earlier, Nasarawa West Zonal Chairman of the APC, Alhaji Iyal Aliyu Hassan, said the decampees, which include a former speaker of the state House of Assembly, Hon. Musa Ahmed Mohammed, former assembly members, former commissioners, as well as thousands of their supporters, were attracted to the ruling party because of the exemplary leadership being provided by the Governor.
Others that decamped to the APC include Hon. Muhammad Baba Ibaku, Hon. Adagoje Madaki and a former commissioner, Alhaji Ahmed Bala Tafida.
2023: Wadada Speaks On What He Will Do To Enhance Quality Education
Musa Jameel Toto.
Hon. Ahmed Aliyu Wadada has said he would improve on the socioeconomic, quality representation and education if given the mandate to serve the good people of Nasarawa West Senatorial District.
According to Wadada, education is an important medium for acquiring essential knowledge and skills. It is more than just learning from books. It is an effort of the older generation to transfer their life wisdom to their offspring. Our world is constantly changing and developing so it is very important to teach and bring up intelligent people who could understand the problems of modern society and solve them in a proper way. It is said that education is not preparation for life; education is life itself. So, why is it extremely important to get a proper education?
Education plays a vital role in shaping successful people. It gives us the opportunity to become a productive member of a civilized society by acquiring all the necessary skills. We learn how to meet challenges and overcome obstacles. We learn how to become an integrated personality and maintain the perpetuation of our culture. People learn basic norms, rules, regulations, and values of society through education. Moreover, high-quality education enables us to lead a successful life, enhances our intelligence, skills, knowledge, and brings positive changes in our life. In this clime, Nasarawa west senatorial district won’t be left behind among the educated generations.
Hon Aliyu Wadada investment in knowledge will speak for us and we will continue to take the lead if he assume the national assembly. When we sneeze, others will catch a cold.
Education lays the foundation stone for our future. An illiterate person can find it very difficult to cope with some aspects of life. Education expands our vision and creates awareness. It helps us develop a disciplined life and provides us with better-earning opportunities. It enables us to know the world beyond our own surroundings. Education is also a prerequisite of the prosperity and modernization of any senatorial district.
Modern education is liberal, open, and exoteric. It is the premise of progress, in every family and in every society. It teaches people to reason. It is based on humanism, freedom, equality, democracy, and human rights. The content of education keeps pace with the needs of modern society and is a mirror of its goals, values, and priorities. The present industrial society has opened up a plenty of occupations which require people with specialized skills and knowledge. So, education is a necessary means of eradicating the unemployment problem. It is able to reduce poverty in a number of ways. But we have to remember that there is a great need for the growth of vocational education so that every person could pursue a fulfilling career that ensures a satisfied life
Society can survive only if there exists among its members a sufficient degree of homogeneity, People of high integrity, moral values, respect for humanity over religious bigotry, ethnic solidarity etc.
What Hon Aliyu Wadada will do differently
1. Our younger generation will be able to freely access primary and basic education.
2. Our uneducated traders will be taught the basics of growing and expanding business
3. Our farmers won’t be left behind in learning about modern farm technological advancement and tools that could help them on the farm
4. Basic computer education will be made available for all our teachers and civil servants. The world is moving at a speed of light and it is important we follow suit.
5. Hon Aliyu Wadada Educate a rural child campaign will be a fantastic idea to eradicate illiteracy among our children.
Service to humanity is the best work of life Hon Aliyu Wadada is ever ready to champion the cause.
