target=_blank>SDP Lists The Offences Of Expelled Jerry Gana And Suspended Donald Duke

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) has explained the reasons for the expulsion of Jerry Gana, the former Minister of Information, and the suspension of Donald Duke, its presidential candidate from the party.
Yemi Akinbode, the Director of Media and Publicity of the party, who gave an insight into the offences committed by the politicians on Tuesday in Abuja, said the party decided to wield the big stick because of their gross misconduct.
Akinbode explained that Gana does not have the locus standi to call the purported National Executive Council (NEC) meeting. He stated that the meeting was illegal and unconstitutional.
“You will recall that the same act of greed, arrogance, disloyalty and perversion being displayed by Professor Gana today in the SDP was responsible for his problem with the leadership of his former party, the PDP, where Professor Gana was accused of embezzling the sum of N500million. This is not a good story for the man. It doesn’t portray him in good public light,” he said.
He stressed that he went to court after he had signed an undertaking to support whoever emerges as the winner of the presidential primaries.
He said: “The party has, therefore, come to the realisation that Gana’s legal suit was motivated by nothing than arrogance, greed, ethnicity and nepotism. He has demonstrated high level of disloyalty and antithetical behaviour that has no iota of goodwill and respect for the ideals and principles of one indivisible, progressive and united Nigeria.
“It is also very clear that Professor Gana has become a divisive politician that has nothing to give back to Nigeria than inciting and promoting religion bigotry in a volatile country like Nigeria.”
He added that the NWC of the party could no longer fold its arms as leaders from whom much is expected, and allow a single individual to “bring to total collapse, a party to which millions of people tied their dreams and destinies”.
He continued: “Consequently, the NWC of our great party, the SDP, on this day, Tuesday, 12th February, 2019, based on the power vested in the NWC by Article 19:4 hereby expels Professor Jerry Gana from the party with immediate effect.”
According to Akinbode, the committee also recommended the National Vice Chairman (South West), Chief Shupo Shonibare for expulsion with immediate effect, because he made himself arrow head of a dissident group in the party.
He expressed surprise that Donald Duke could betray the party so soon, despite all the goodwill of the party towards him. He stated that Duke arrested the progress of the party by not commencing campaign at state, regional and federal levels, thereby diminishing the potentials and capacities of the party.
“Consequently, for his disrespect for the leadership of the party that has done so much for him, and for also his disobedience to the rules and regulations of the SDP, Duke has erred and the law must take its course. Relying on the provisions of the constitution of the party, the NWC wishes to announce his immediate suspension from the party forthwith.”

target=_blank>Tension In Bayelsa As Security Operatives Invade Ex-militant’s Base

There is palpable tension in Peremabiri community in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of the state of Bayelsa State, over reports of an invasion by security operatives.
The community is the country home of an ex-militant leader, Eris Paul, popularly known as ‘Ogunboss’, who has been at loggerheads with Governor Seriake Dickson.
SaharaReporters gathered that some security operatives made up of the officers of the Nigerian Navy and the state security outfit known as ‘Door Akpor’, invaded the community to arrest the ex-militant leader, ahead of the general election.
The armed invasion, which occurred on Saturday night, threw the quiet community into panic. A 200-horse-powered speed boat and two 75 horse powered boats were said to have been stolen.
Timipre Sylva, a former Governor of Bayelsa State, during a media broadcast on Monday said the attack was politically-motivated, noting that it was allegedly sponsored because the ex-militant leader is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
A group known as the Citizen Rights Watch, led by Comrade Eriye (Egbematorou) and Comrade Stephen Nicodemus (Peremabiri), accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administration of using the security outfits for “personal and political vendetta”.
The group also alleged that the newly sworn-in vice chairman of the Southern Ijaw Local Government Council led the attack under the guise of ‘show of strength’.
In a statement issued via email, the Citizen Rights Watch claimed that “the preliminary report on the incident showed that the invasion of the community was motivated by the alleged desperate effort of the PDP to install the deposed Paramount Ruler of the Community, Mr. Promise Neverdie, and secure the Ward 8 control in Southern Ijaw Local Government Council.”
The group also alleged that the invasion was motivated by the “inability of the PDP campaign train to land in Peremabiri community due to the purported threat of the ex-militant leader that the community may not be safe for the campaign team of the ruling party”.
The statement added: “The PDP-led administration should apologize to the people of the Peremabiri community for the attack and government should remain neutral on the issue of internal community squabbles. We call on President Muhammadu Buhari, the Chief of Naval Staff, and the Nigerian Army to investigate the armed security personnel used in the inglorious invasion.
“We call on the Governor to stop the ongoing intimidation of Peremabiri for political gains. Governor Dickson should remember that he led the high criticism against former Governor Sylva on issues of use of cultists and security agents to intimidate the people, but he has now become the user of the military and cultists to intimidate the people. He should apologise to Sylva.
“We call on the sons and daughters of the Boma clan in the administration of Governor Seriake Dickson and the PDP to speak and be counted, as those that stood out to make a difference.”

target=_blank>BREAKING: Confusion In SDP As Faction Suspends National Chairman, Adopts Atiku

A factional group of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) has suspended Professor Tunde Adeniran, the acting National Chairman.
The group also adopted Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as its presidential candidate.
The announcement comes five days after the party adopted President Muhammadu Buhari as its presidential candidate for the 2019 general election.
Tuesday’s development was contained in a communiqué signed by Supo Shonibare, National Chairman and Adakole Ijigi, National Secretary, at the end of a stakeholders’ meeting of the party on Tuesday, held at Merit House in Abuja.
The group, led by Shonibare, said the appointment and announcement of Adeniran as the acting Chairman of the party is unconstitutional, adding that his suspension was as a result of his gross misconduct, anti-party activities, and acts prejudicial to the fortunes of the party, “which have gravely brought the party to great disrepute”.
Shonibare, formerly the party’s National Vice Chairman, South West, was nominated, adopted and ratified as the new National Chairman of the party. The group also suspended the National Secretary of the party, Alhaji Shehu Gabam.
The communiqué read: “The NEC considered all the options available to the party and observed the impasse occasioned by the lingering court claims of our presidential candidates which prevented any nationwide presidential campaign.
“In view of these challenges, the NEC deliberated exhaustively and unanimously resolved to direct the Social Democratic Party supporters nationwide to mobilize our members and members of the public to support the candidature of the Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
“This directive is premised on the Alhaji Atiku Abubakar acceptance of a template for fiscal and political restructuring to devolve to the states all functions of government that are not the exclusive prerogative of obligations under international treaties or common services of states, and on assurance that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will be able to effectively address the economic security and political challenges facing the polity.”

target=_blank>2019 Elections And Disturbing Political Violence By Alabidun Shuaib Abdulrahman

Historically, Nigeria’s elections have always been tense. In few days, Nigerians will go to the polls to elect the country’s next president and members of National Assembly. And as the campaign gathers momentum, there are concerns the upcoming process will see new violence. Although I am neither a prophet of doom nor pro electoral violence to have predicted this but it must be stated we can’t rule it out, considering the scores of political violence that have been witnessed in recent times.
On January 8, violence erupted during the inauguration of the campaign of the All Progressives Congress at the Sky Power Ground, Oba Akinjobi Road, Ikeja, Lagos, as factional political errands boys known as thugs invaded the venue in their daredevil – look and later disrupted the programme by engaging in a supremacy battle with one another. They wielded all sorts of dangerous weapons against one another the aftermath was several degrees of injury.
Many were reportedly shot, as some were hacked. Among those who reportedly sustained gunshot injuries during the clash were the Group Political Editor of The Nation, Emmanuel Oladesu; a correspondent with New Telegraph, Temitope Ogunbanke; and a cameraman with Ibile Television, Abiodun Yusuf and surprisingly, a leader of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, Musiliu Akinsanya, aka MC Oluomo, was also stabbed during the clash.
In a separate incident, a few days later, one person was killed and about 10 vehicles were destroyed during an attack on the convoy of the governorship candidate of the APC in Taraba State, Alhaji Sani Danladi. The incident occurred when Danladi, who was on a campaign tour of the Southern zone of the state was on his way to Ibi Local Government Area and his convoy ran into some youths who barricaded the Ibi roundabout area of Wukari.
Also, in another scenario, it was reported around January that two persons were injured and many properties worth millions of naira were destroyed in Kwara State as a result of political clash among the political apologists of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC). 
However, just recently, hell was let loose in Abuja, as supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) engaged in a violent clash that left many injured and several vehicles burnt. It is said that the incident happened when the convoy of the Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mallam Mohammed Musa Bello, ran into a PDP campaign event at Dei Dei market, on the way to the palace of the Sarkin Jiwa in Jiwa District. 
So unfortunate, these are among the numerous cases of violence that have been recorded in Nigeria since the process leading to the nation’s general elections. 
Furthermore, the National Security Adviser (NSA), retired Maj.-Gen. Mohammed Monguno, during his meeting with members of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) made a very shocking revelation on how some politicians are scheming to arm political thugs during the general elections. He said that intelligence reports had indicated plans by some individuals and groups to instigate violence during and after the upcoming elections. 
As the nation gets closer to the general elections, therefore, one will just hope that political gladiators will learn from the saying that when brothers fight to death, a stranger inherits their father’s estate.Youths should apply senses, so as not to allow their blood to be used to settle political scores. The ‘old brigade gladiators’ that you are supporting and want to kill yourselves for have been leading this country in their early 20s and 30s respectively. Play politics with both civility and humanity. 
While we await a credible and violence free polls before, during and after elections, there should be self-censorship in the spread of fake news and hate speech, as many times, political intolerance is characterised by hate speech and non-issue based driven campaign. 
Just as incidences cited above do cause violence, the deliberate spread of fake results from the election without cross-checking do cause more. It is expected that more of such falsehood will still be dished out during the elections, therefore causing unnecessary panic among citizens.
Therefore, a peaceful general election must be preceded by political education of electorates and party supporters alike. Our security personnel should do everything possible to forestall any bloodletting before, during and after election, as my hashtag is “Let’s vote and no fight.”

E2%80%94-coalition-300-groups-endorses-atiku target=_blank>‘Buhari No Longer Has 12 Million Votes In The North’ — Coalition Of 300 groups Endorses Atiku

A coalition of more than 300 political groups has endorsed Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
According to the groups, President Muhammadu Buhari has lost the support of 12 million voters, which he “comfortably monopolised” in previous election.
The coalition, which cuts across political party divides, based its decision on “the momentum the Atiku presidential campaign” has continued to gather across the country.
Balarabe Sadi Adamu, who spoke on behalf of the coalition at a large gathering in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, on Tuesday, said: “The North cannot cede power to the North-West all the time, except if we want to redefine the North as North-West. You can see that contrary to permutations, Kano stood still for several hours when Atiku visited on Sunday.
“I mean, in all parts of the North, we all can attest to Atiku’s strong and competitive outing. In Borno, Katsina, Sokoto, these were hitherto no-go areas for President Buhari’s opponents; you know that.
“I can bet it that the so called 12 million votes for Buhari in the North for now, only exists in some people’s imagination. Therefore, going by what obtains in the ongoing campaign rallies across the country, every right thinking Nigerian knows where the pendulum is swinging to.”
Also speaking, Mary Frank made a mockery of yesterday’s pelting of dignitaries at President Muhammadu Buhari’s rally in Ogun, saying “it only signals public rejection”. She added that “the Ogun saga is a testament that Nigerians have rejected the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)”.
Ahmed Umar Fintri, the PDP governorship candidate in Adamawa, who addressed the gathering on behalf of Atiku, urged supporters of the former Vice-President to come out en masse on Thursday, as the party rounds up its presidential campaign in Yola.

target=_blank>NGOs, Catholic Women Partner To Tackle The LGBT Threat To African Family Values

Nigeria is said to have a ‘youth bulge’, with over 6O per cent of its population between ages 15 and 35 years. This implies that the country has huge human resources, which, if properly harnessed, are capable of restoring its pride of place among the comity of nations.
Unfortunately, young people are confronted with various challenges that continually hinder them from reaching their maximum potential. These include increased rate of drug abuse and addiction, pornography, prostitution, unemployment, promiscuity, eroding societal values among other issues have left a good number of youths devastated.
These have made it imperative for the Foundation for African Cultural Heritage (FACH), a Non-profit Governmental Organisation (NGO), to collaborate with the Catholic Women Organisation (CWO) in changing the narrative by sensitising, informing and guarding the youth against external influences from some international organisations, most especially those that promulgate LGBT agenda in contradiction of the African Cultural and religious beliefs, thereby contributing to the collapse of family values. Through a two-day conference tagged ‘Responding to the Challenges of Youth, family and society: The Millennial’s Response’, various speakers drawn from within and outside the country, including Catholic Bishops of Enugu, Awka and Nsukka, urged parents to embrace the challenge of training their children in line with the principles of the church, as bad parenting and neglect is bedevilling the future of young people. 
President, Catholic Women Organisation, Nigeria, Barrister Nwanneka Okolo; President, World Youth Alliance, Anna Halpine and Director, Quality Assurance And Research Development Agency, Dr Tessy Okafor, raised concerns about teaching “comprehensive sexuality education” in primary and secondary schools, which they say exposes children to the use of contraceptives at an early age. They warned that bizarre and wrong sexual orientation encourages abuse of their sexuality and in the long run are harmful to the development of the children, thereby promoting LGBT agenda alien to African culture.
The conference exposed participants to tactics employed by these International Donor Agencies in funding distribution contraceptives and condoms in schools and among young people.
Examples of how they penetrate lawmaking arm of government were cited during the conference. 
Legislators in the country were advised to be on the alert and acquire adequate knowledge on the terminologies and words that suggest LGBT rights, as found in some bills brought before national and state assemblies.
Other pro-life advocates, including directors of FACH, Dr Nkechi Asogwa, Dr Regina Akosa and member Mrs Ifeyinwa Agwu, among others, highlighted the importance of upholding “human dignity”, which they described as the basis for “human rights”.
Participants were enlightened by experts on health and psychological problems associated with using contraceptives for family planning and IVF. They were encouraged to embrace and spread the message of natural and safe methods of conception and child spacing to safeguard the health of African women.
These international organisations were urged to assist the country in fixing its infrastructural deficit as against funding initiatives detrimental to population growth and maternal health.
Despite the misconceptions by today’s society about abstinence, which is often considered archaic, youth are being advised at the to embrace chastity as the pathway to happy marriage.Youths were also encouraged to imbibe virtues that will strengthen their personalities and self-confidence such as volunteering. They were told to implore the effective and active use of social media to promote values and evangelise the message of Christ.

target=_blank>2019 Presidential Election: I Stand With Sowore By Churchill Okonkwo

More than two years before the former U.S. President Barack Obama declared to run for the United States President, Oprah Winfrey appeared on Larry King Live on CNN, described Obama as her favorite senator and hoped he would run for president.  In June 2008, after Obama secured the Democratic nomination, Winfrey said that “I’m euphoric; I’ve been doing the happy dance all day. I’m so proud of Barack and Michelle Obama and what this means for all of us … the new possibilities for our country. And if he wants me to, I’m ready to go door to door.”
Nigeria is standing on the threshold of a crucial Presidential election that will determine the direction of the country for the foreseeable future. Twenty years from today, our kids born and unborn will look back at this moment in our checkered democracy and ask where I, you, we stood on February 16th, 2019. I want to state for the records, that I am standing with the African Action Congress (AAC) candidate Omoloye Sowore. Like Oprah Winfrey, I am euphoric in standing with Sowore, a presidential candidate with the promise of bringing new possibilities to Nigeria.  
This is based on my conviction that in our quasi-hypocritical democracy where the political leaders have turned themselves to mini-gods, playing on primordial feelings to deceive the poor masses; in a system where political followership has been reduced to blind support based on ethnic and religious sentiments; and in a poverty-stricken society where dangerously corrupt politicians are wooing voters on the premise that the looters in our party are less evil than the looters in your party, only a political rebel, Sowore, that has no respect for the status quo can change Nigeria.
My endorsement of Sowore is an endorsement of a leader that sees things differently. It is an endorsement for a leader that is attempting to re-engineer followership based on everyday issues that affect millions of Nigerians. You can disagree with Sowore’s style – bluntness; you can vilify him for being consistently consistent against corrupt politicians; the one thing you can’t do is ignore him. It is only his types that change things. 
In endorsing Sowore, I am simply making a case for a political rebel that is willing to stand with Nigerian workers, student, peasants, and political orphans. Sowore understands that the success of Nigerian democracy over the past 19 years should be judged on the fairness of the political system on the people that lack personal advantages; the poor, the students, the civil servants in the lower carder and the rest of us that live under the perpetual condition of economic insecurity. 
Unfortunately, however, the citizens that hover on the edge of official poverty measure the quality of Nigerian democracy on the contentment of the same affluent political class in the APC and PDP that has impoverished us by devouring the national wealth. These forgotten citizens are like the pawns in a chase game. They are the cheap foot soldiers used at political rallies for instant videos and images that are shared on social media platforms as an indication of grassroots support.
Sowore understands that the dividends of democracy are not measured by the contentment of the affluent political class, but in how the political system has implemented policies and programs aimed at lifting the ordinary Nigerians, the political orphans out of poverty. The challenging conditions faced by the political orphans in Nigeria like high tuition fees for students; low wage for workers; poor health care; poor sanitation and nascence of potable water; were once part of the general equation that the political system considered when it decided the largest economic questions. That’s what Sowore’s candidacy has been fighting to restore. 
Mind you, though many these Nigerians hover on the edge or below the unofficial poverty line, these political orphans are not the idle poor or the lazy youth. There are hardworking Nigerians that perform the least glamorous but essential jobs and ranks but virtually exist in a perpetual condition of economic insecurity. Sowore understands this and was the first candidate to promise a minimum living wage of one hundred thousand Naira. 
Nigerian workers are invisible in the political debate among the elites of the two main political parties. Their absence is a critical element in the general democratic failure in Nigerian politics. Sowore remains the only visible Presidential candidate that is genuinely beaming the light on the everyday struggle of these Nigerians. He is reawakening the political consciousness that will open new possibilities for Nigerians. That’s why I am standing with him. 
The citizens of Nigeria do not know the political class kept us away from the everyday issues we should care about by manipulating sentiments. As a consequence, our political activism in social media has lost coherence and real energy needed to rehabilitate our democracy. They have succeeded in making us dwell in righteous isolation. We are thus, rendered ineffectual, unable to speak coherently for ourselves. Sowore has, however, taken our political activism to the mainstream of politics in Nigeria. That’s why I am standing with him. 
Aside from his focus on the peasants, Nigerian worker, students, and the poor masses, what resonated most for me in Sowore’s candidacy is his noncompromising stands on corruption. As you may have known by now, I am unapologetically for anti-corruption and that means that I am anti-anyone who corruptly enriched him or herself amid poverty in Nigeria. 
In the weeks leading to this election, many Nigerians acted as if we have only the APC and the PDP, full of political actors that have amassed illicit wealth during poverty. I tried for a moment, to forget Buhari’s caricature of fighting corruption, but the thought of a Nigerian government led by a thief, Atiku, made me choke. Atiku’s claim to “get Nigeria working again” made me clench my teeth. Make Nigerian work again? What? For who? The looters? 
Tifiakwa!
We need to stand with Sowore on February, 16th2019, if we want to stop them from using our looted commonwealth to keep us, the citizens in eternal subjection. We need to stand with Sowore in this long struggle for Nigeria’s soul. As Oprah Winfrey knocked on doors for Obama, I am knocking on the hearts and the political consciousness of all right-thinking Nigerians for Sowore. 
This fight is our fight. I will stand with Sowore on February 16th. What about you?
Together, we can.

target=_blank>APC Thugs Attacking Our Members, Accord Party Claims

Honorable Ayodele Adeluola, House of Representatives candidate of Mushin II, contesting on the platform of the Accord Party, has claimed that some thugs working for the All Progressives Congress (APC) have been attacking and intimidating its members in Mushin constituency of Lagos.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday in Lagos, Adeluola said the attack was to dissuade the party’s supporters from participating in the presidential election.
He disclosed that one of his party members was recently attacked and beaten to pulp.
He said: “One of our members was attacked and his head was smashed with an interlock block recently. He had to be rushed to the hospital.  The matter is still pending at the Area D Police Station in Mushin.
“We are constrained to cry out as the desperation of the APC is growing as the February 16, National Assembly and presidential elections approach. In Mushin federal constituency 1 and II, the choice of the people is the Accord Party. They know they can never win a free and fair contest.”
Adeluola maintained that the thugs are warehousing weapons and arms to attack members of opposition party, especially the Accord Party in Mushin constituency, noting that they had been informed that APC members are also making plans to resort to inducing voters.
“They (APC thugs) have stockpiled arms and other dangerous objects, which they plan to use to intimidate voters. They can be caught if the concerned security agencies act swiftly. Rigging in Mushin will be costly. The people are resolved to vote out the APC incumbent incompetent representative at the lower chamber of the National Assembly. Their thugs cannot suppress the will of the people.
“We also gathered from reliable sources that where violence and intimidation fail, they plan to induce voters with ill-gotten money and compromise the integrity of the process.
“We call on the Inspector General of Police, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, and other security agencies to provide adequate security for Mushin Local Government Area to forestall the breakdown of law and order on the day of election.
“We urge the security agencies to arrest and put in detention the known career thugs who are sympathetic to the APC in Mushin. We are sure the security operatives know them and their grandmasters and cohorts.”

ASUP Suspends Two-Month-Old Strike

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has suspended its strike after two months.
Usman Dutse, ASUP National President, announced this at a media briefing held at the end of its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.
He noted that the decision was taken in view of the progress made in its discussions with Nigerian government.
He said: “We have hereby decided to suspend our two-month strike. This decision was taken at the end of our National Executive Council meeting. This is in view of the progress made in the course of the union’s negotiations with government.
“The NEC of the union, after exhaustive deliberations and in due consultations with the respective congresses across the nation, resolved to suspend the current industrial action.”
Dutse stated that the government had shown willingness to make funds available for disbursement by April 2019. He also added that N16.7billion has been released for the payment of salaries and allowances.
“A circular had also been released to all rectors conveying increased personnel funding for 2019 and directing the payment of full salaries and allowances in Polytechnics. It is expected that the funds shall be made available for disbursement to deserving institutions by April 2019. Equally, the approval of the NEEDS assessment report shall be pursued with all diligence to ensure a sustained and effective intervention in the infrastructure and other needs of our institutions,” he said.
Dutse noted that the union would not hesitate to resume the strike if the government fails to review the Memorandum of Action and ensure full implementation before end of May 2019.
