It has been consistently political unequivocally and universally that the essence of a democratic government or any form of government is good leadership. This intangible and immaterial element is a veritable remedy and antidote to resolving crisis in any society. Great countries apply the remedy for sustenance, as they are the divert products of statesmen who apply to solve crisis situation.

Though this is not without exception, as few Nigerians have distinguished themselves through leadership traits. One of such people is the former governor of Nasarawa State and current Senator Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, whose has answered the calls from APC leaders and stakeholders to vie for the position of the National Chairman of the party in the party’s convention slated for July 2021.

A very principled and highly respected parliamentarian and party chieftain of the governing APC. A giant among peers not only in terms of intellect, vision and prestige but also in terms of sterling qualities of leadership. A man endowed with pragmatism high sense of service, dynamism and unalloyed love for the party affairs.

Senator Al-Mukura is man that is naturally loved and admired by the people; a democrat and pivot of mass mobilisation; a man who achieves greatness through assiduousness, self -will and sheer determination; a good listener; a man that remains unruffled even at the height of unwarranted intimidation and provocation; a man with critical thinking-skills.

He is a strong advocate of unity, peace and progress of our great country, Nigeria.

He believes in mega- changes in the social, economic and political sectors and theses must be driven by the current generation of Nigerians.

It is with this spirit that he has shown extra-ordinary commitment to education, electoral reforms, good governance, financial accountability and prudence, party cohesion, socio-economic development, peaceful inter-religious coexistence ,security of lives and properties, freedom of citizens and rule of law, youth and women inclusion and social justice.

One cannot but wonder from which source he drives his rare aggressive energetic zeal and tenacity, in solving party matters within a snap of a finger.

To borrow the words of the classical Greek writer Homer, he is both a speaker of words and doer of deeds. Benevolent and highly spirited party loyalist who is a believer in the delegation of responsibilities to his subordinates for the creation of an incorruptible, efficient, resilient and responsive party system.

It is no longer news that Al-Makura has offered to serve his party in the highest position of National Chairman if the position is zone to his North Central Zone, his experience, antecedent, credibility and charisma are credentials that stand him out.

What is also amusing to some is that the charismatic leader recognized that good governance cannot only come about through visionary and dedicated leaders alone, but also a political platform that must encapsulate the set visions and ideologies of the actions of the individuals concerned.

Barely days after president’s claimed, World Bank reports stated rising prices in the country have pushed an estimated 7 million Nigerians below the poverty line in 2020 alone.

About 100 million Nigerians, or half the population, live on less than $1(N500) per day, unemployment rate has rising to 32.5 and also Nigeria had overtaken India as the country with the largest number of people living in extreme poverty.

According to the reports released by National Statistic Bureau the rise in the food index was broad based, caused by increases in prices of bread, egg, beans, rice, yam, Fish, meat, fruits, and vegetables. Nigerians never expects such kind hardship as country’s inflation rate rose further in June 2020 to 12.56% (Year-on-Year), 0.16% points higher than the rate recorded in May 2020 (12.4%) as country’s inflation rate rose further each passing day.

Nigerians are languishing in extreme poverty battling with daily survival became uphill challenge due to unprecedented hardships peoples going through in the country reaching highest since in the late 80s.

For the administration to reduce the level of poverty in the country federal government should focus on three Policy Priorities which include: “Reduce Inflation by Implementing Policies That Support Macroeconomic Stability, Inclusive Growth, And Job Creation; Protect poor households from the impacts of inflation; Facilitate access to financing for small and medium enterprises in key sectors to mitigate the effects of inflation and accelerate the recovery.

It will be highest injustice for anybody not to acknowledge many PMB’s programs to alleviate economic hardship to Nigerians but targets citizens are not much benefits. Reviving Nation’s Economy which is the one of the three cardinal promises PMB made before the electorates remain Herculean tasks.

Those entrusts with public offices may not necessarily remain honest to tells truth to the leaders on the true situation on the ground. One may go to market stalls to listen peoples conversation even without listening them one may see the anger in their faces.

For sake of history and the country to judge the administration fairly, let captain of the ship regain his past hard earning status of being a strong and No Non Sense General, Let him do any things to prevent the worst happening in remaining two years of the administration.

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2021 | What We Must Do

Old age is a blessing that our faith recognizes and extols. Sadly, for many people, old age is a dread due to certain socio-cultural and economic reasons. According to the United Nations, elder abuse is a global human rights issue which affects the health of millions of older persons around the world.

Hajia Ramatu Tijani Aliyu’s Appreciation Message
The incidence of abuse towards older people, according to the UN, is predicted to increase as many countries are experiencing rapidly ageing populations. Even though Nigeria’s population is increasingly youthful, an estimated 1.2 billion (by 2025) global population of persons aged 60 years and older, compels us to brace up for a moral showdown in my view.

Having older people around us is a blessing that cannot be quantified. The fact is that our elders make huge contributions to our world. They ought to be given due recognition and care.

It is therefore pertinent for all of us to work together to improve the living conditions of older persons while we yet have them with us.

“ARAKUNRIN AKEREDOLU IS A RARE BREED AMONG POLITICIANS IN THE SOUTHWEST” – AFENIFERE FOR COLLECTIVE TRANSFORMATION

“ARAKUNRIN AKEREDOLU IS A RARE BREED AMONG POLITICIANS IN THE SOUTHWEST” – AFENIFERE FOR COLLECTIVE TRANSFORMATION

 

 

As a socio-political movement, Afenifere For Collective Transformation led by the Director General, Prince Tolu Ajayi has been following the ongoing Public Hearing on Constitution Review across the Country so far with our focus on the southwest.

No submission has caught our attention like the submission from the Governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu whom was represented by his Deputy, Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa among other brilliant submissions, calling for the scraping of the senate which has been the call by many groups in the Country as well.

The senate in recent time has become the retirement home for many Governors who believed that the Nigeria state must continue to take care of their well-being and that of their families for the rest of their lives despite the the huge pension packages many of them allocates to themselves with the collaboration of their State Assemblies.

READ:  Elayo: The Political Juggernaut And Intellectual Wizard In Nasarawa ......

Today, many senators in the senate are collecting huge pension on monthly basis and still collecting salaries and allowances as senators, yet common Nigerians that voted them into power go to bed each day on empty stomach especially in this economic hardship caused as a result of Covid 19 pandemic, banditry which has caused many farmers to abandoned their homes and farms and lots of unfavourable economic policies.

According to the Governor, “the membership of the Assembly should be part time. No member should earn allowances not known to the Revenue Mobilisation and Allocation Committee and the people they claim to serve”

“Legislators should earn under a uniform salary structure. Allowance peculiarities must not be about obscenity. The Senate should be scrapped”

“The House of Representatives too should not be unwieldy. A maximum of four representatives should come from each Zone,”

“Ministries, departments and agencies must be pruned to reflect the socio-economic realities of the moment”

“The government at the centre must divest itself of this self-inflicted heavy burden, for effective and impactful performance”

He later called for State police, resource control, judicial reforms, especially with zones having their court of appeals.

Akeredolu concluded by a return to the 1963 Republican Constitution, saying, “We would have resolved many fundamental issues of nationhood with the adoption”

For us, the above submission by Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu shows clearly that he’s not in anyway eyeing the senate upon completion of his tenure.

He has demonstrated a rare breed of leadership quality that an average Nigerian is unknown for.

He has demonstrated true patriotism against power hunger which has become the second nature of many of our leaders and politicians.

In view of this, Afenifere For Collective Transformation ACT, salute the courage, patriotism and kind-hearted nature of the Governor which is rare among his contemporaries.

We hereby declare our support for the submission and position of the governor regarding the constitution review and wish Nigeria could be blessed with many leaders of his kind.

READ:  The Burden Of Leadership

Finally, we throw our weight behind the Governor and call on our Senators to display the same level of patriotism exhibited by Governor Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu by adopting the submissions of the Governor even though it would definitely have a negative effect on them as their present offices would be threatened.

We implore them to see this as a necessary sacrifice towards giving Nigerians a Country our generation and generations to come can be proud of.

We believe posterity would be kind to this 9th senate if this could be done.

They should just for once do this as a means of selfless service to the people and the Country at large.

 

Signed:

Prince Tolu Ajayi,
DG Afenifere For Collective Transformation ACT.

Comrade Salami Taiwo Ramon,
Chief Press Secretary to the DG.
