People Don’t Get Over Their Problems By Running Away From Them. – Says Elempe Dele.

“To be careful about rhetorics from our leaders and even us concerning a looming civil war and or this country tilting towards a completely failed state is yet the best thing any patriot should do in an ideal situation.

However, the indices, statistics, and reality on ground must be looked at keenly so that we don’t try to wish away facts as if in them the truth of the sorry state we are will go away magically.

People don’t get over their problems by running away from them, they face them squarely. In a country were over 100 people, including security operatives are either killed or Kidnapped on weekly basis cannot be said not to be at the verge of a civil strife of sort. In a country where each nationality is hoisting their flags and printing their own currencies in serious Secession bids cannot be said to be in a state of peace.

In a country where a quasi-state like Boko Haram and Bandits hold large swarth of the country as their caliphates, collecting taxes and recruiting the willing and unwilling, cannot be said to be tranquil.

The misbegotten call those who tell it the way it is names of their own inventions, but they are those who live in lies and denials so we don’t really factor them into our candid national discussions. They are mostly small sects of blackmailers and gaslighted propagandists.

There is a simple curative lore to our problem; Buhari, who is totally absent, should resign from office with immediate effect and alacrity. He should handover to Prof. Osinbajo and let there be a convocation of a national conference to negotiate out our union.

The contraption does not seem to be working – since 1960, and it got worsened under General Buhari due to his nepotistic, tribalistic and religious tendencies. And on this basis, no united NIGERIA can be sort under him.

Coupled with his ineptitude, clannishness, incompetence, ailment, absenteeism, he is not fit for the job, which he has never been fit for.

Nigeria is not a small sect of people where you oversee as a mujahedeen. NIGERIA is a vast multi-ethnic nationalities with different cultures, different religious and different resources. The people are generally rebelling against Buhari’s unforced failures.”

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.

Everyday Nigerians lamented rising cost of living as food prices soar at 12.56%. With all sense of highest esteem to Mr President, the level of poverty in the country is unspeakable talk less of lifted –farmers, Small-scale Traders, artisans, market women and other people out of 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. In reality Food inflation across the federation is worse than official Bureau figures show.

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.

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.

“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.

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.

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,
