 ANAMBRARIANS HAVE STRONG CONFIDENCE IN PDP AND WILL VOTE THE PARTY ON NOVEMBER 6, EKWUNIFE SAYS



The Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial District, Senator Uche Ekwunife, has restated that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is a party founded on the principles of democracy, adding that the PDP thrives on issue-based politihcs. She expressed optimism that the people of Anambra will through their votes choose the PDP amongst other parties ahead of the November 6 governorship election.


Ekwunife, who spoke in Abuja on Tuesday, September 28, 2021, while addressing newsmen shortly after the meeting of the transport sub-committee for the upcoming national convention of the party, noted that the party would provide the needed leadership Ndi Anambra are yearning for, stressing that bad governance would be a forgotten history by the time the PDP reclaimed Agu Awka.


"In terms of provision of quality leadership and passion for good governance, PDP is the best alternative. This is very much evident in the performance of governors in PDP controlled states. In Anambra today, the party has a candidate who is sellable. Our candidate is working hard to ensure that the party emerges victorious and we are strongly supporting him", the federal lawmaker said.


Speaking further, Ekwunife who is also the chairperson, PDP state governorship campaign council stated that the mammoth crowd at the party's campaign rallies shows wide acceptance of the party by the people of the state. She stressed that Anambrarians have strong confidence in PDP and will vote in the party as a credible replacement for the ruling party in the state.


"When you move around Anambra, it is glaring that the people need a better infrastructure than they have today. They are yearning for a radical improvement in almost every sector of the state economy and are ready to effect the necessary political change that will guarantee a prosperous future for them and their children by casting their votes for PDP."


Senator Ekwunife further urged Anambrarians to turn out en masse, cast and protect their votes on the election day, assuring that their votes must count and no party would be allowed to rig the election. She assured that the exercise would be free, fair and credible, adding that security operatives would be on ground to ensure a hitch-free election.


Ekwunife reiterated the need for the government to address the current security challenges in the south-east, emphasising that the protection of lives and property remains the primary responsibilities of every responsible government.


"The killings being reported across the state is quite disturbing. Our people must understand that we cannot achieve our collective aspirations by spilling innocent blood."


"This upcoming election is not about the politicians but about the people. Efforts must be made by all stakeholders in the electoral process to ensure the conduct of a free, fair and credible election. I am certain that with PDP at the helm of affairs in the state, Ndi Anambra would be assured of productive, versatile and all-inclusive governance", the ranking Senator assured.

ADDRESS BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE EXECUTIVE GOVERNOR OF ANAMBRA STATE

 ADDRESS BY HIS EXCELLENCY THE EXECUTIVE GOVERNOR OF ANAMBRA STATE ON WEDNESDAY 29TH SEPTEMBER, 2021.

 


It is on a very sad note that I address the State today to condemn in very strong terms, the violence that has been witnessed in Anambra in the past few days.

Since last weekend, some armed persons have unleashed terror with sporadic attacks on innocent citizens in various parts of the State

From the briefings I have received from Security Commanders, Offices of some political parties, branded campaign vehicles and individuals occupying them have been attacked with killings and burning of vehicles observed. Other innocent road users have become victims of this menace with many losing their lives and others, their properties.

Between Sunday 26th and yesterday 28th September, 2021 attacks on citizens at Oko, Agulu, Obosi, Nkpor, Nnobi, Nnewi and other places have left about ten (10) people dead including an illustrious son of this State, Dr Chike Akunyili, husband of late Prof Dora Akunyili who was reportedly gunned down yesterday around Nkpor.

These are our own people dying every day and for what reason?

Ndi Anambra, these attacks and accompanying deaths cannot be justified and must stop now.

I have therefore conducted an extensive security meeting and have directed all Security Agencies to step up and confront this monster ravaging our land. I charge everyone involved in the security architecture of Anambra State to take very seriously, this threat to our livelihood and boldly rise to confront same. Everything that needs to be done will be done and no stone will be left unturned in this effort. My directive to this effect is clear and i urge every security personnel on duty in Anambra State to do his utmost best to secure our people.

To all citizens of Anambra State and every person living and doing business in our State, I urge you now to join forces with us to confront this common enemy. We cannot condone this savagery for any reason whatsoever. I therefore call on all our youths in the State to rise up and protect our communities. Traditional Rulers, Presidents General, Clergy men, Vigilante Groups and all leadership structures must now take responsibility and in conjunction with the Police, Military and other Law Enforcement Agencies, work to restore order immediately.

To reinforce our commitment and seriousness on this issue, I on behalf of the State Government, wish to announce a twenty million Naira (N20,000,000.00) reward for any useful information leading to the arrest of the perpetrators of these heinous attacks on our State. The people behind this must be unmasked and brought to book. I urge Citizens to report to us, anybody bearing firearm who is not a Security or Vigilante personnel, so we can deal with this monster, once and for all. Call 07039194332 or approach any Security deployment if you have any information. As the Americans say, IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING.

At this point, I wish to most heartily condole with the families of all those who have lost their loved ones in the course of these senseless attacks. I promise you that we will leave no stone unturned in getting justice for them. May their souls rest in peace.

Finally, I urge all citizens of the State to unite in this fight against all forms of terror, intimidation and tyranny. We will not succumb to invaders as I am convinced that no Anambra son will indulge in this kind of heartlessness. I warn all those promoting and participating in these violent attacks to leave our State or pay a high price as we will definitely catch up with them.

To all law abiding citizens and persons living in our State, I urge you to go about your lawful businesses but we must now ALL go to work and take back our State. This is Anambra, the Light of the Nation, where darkness has no place. The events of the last one week will not be allowed to fester and by God’s grace, we shall overcome.

Thank you and God bless.

Gov Willie Obiano, FCA.

WE HAVE NOT ISSUED ANY OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON ANAMBRA ELECTION

 IPOB PRESS RELEASE 


WE HAVE NOT ISSUED ANY OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON ANAMBRA ELECTION, WE HAVE NO HAND IN POLITICALLY MOTIVATED KILLINGS IN SOUTH EAST - IPOB




We the great family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by our great leader Mazi Nnamdi Okwuchukkwu Kanu, wish to dissociate ourselves from the senseless killing of innocent citizens in Anambra State. We have no hands in the political killings going on in Biafra land. We have severally raised the alarm that some cruel politicians are hiding under the cloak of the situation in Biafra land to eliminate their political enemies and blame it on IPOB.



We don't know why wicked politicians especially in Imo and Anambra States will choose to slaughter their opponents and turn around and point accusing fingers at IPOB or the operatives of Eastern Security Network ESN. Politicians should leave us alone and settle their scores. No IPOB member or ESN operative is involved in such barbarity. We have no interest in the zoo politics. Restoration of Biafra is our mandate!



We also wish to clarify that IPOB has never issued any official statement that there would be no governorship election in Anambra State.


Those peddling such rumour are not our members, and should be ignored. Our position on Anambra election will be made public at the right time through our normal channels of information dissemination. Anything to the contrary should be disregarded. Members of the public should stop believing social media fake stories purported to have emanated from IPOB. We are an organized movement and we don't hide our position on any matter.  


Those killed Dora Akunyili husband killed his wife with poison from Fulani because she exposed the death of Yaradua for Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to take over President of failed Nigeria, they know themselves those conspired to poisoned prof. Dora Akunyili, they're contesting governorship election in Anambra State today. 



We have no issues with Chike Akunyili and we don't him, those behind this act must stop this and stop using IPOB name, we don't want anybody to blame IPOB because we must get them, this is pure political assassination going on in Anambra State now and it been perfected by Nigeria, DSS security agents are doing this to paint IPOB back in the face of support and encouragement we are getting from our people. 

We know their plans and gimmick to discourage Biafrans who are encouraging and supporting us but it can't work for them, in the near future those committing this atrocities in Imo and Anambra States will hear from IPOB and our people should not blame us because we must get them. 


Had IPOB issued a statement regarding Anambra election, by now traitors like Joe Igbokwe would have been ranting that it was IPOB that killed APGA and APC members along Nnobi junction last week.


It is obvious that those that burnt Anambra Government House and other parts of the state some years back are  back to use intimidations and killings to subdue their opponents ahead of the governorship election in Anambra State.

IPOB reveals those who killed Dora Akunyili’s husband, Chike

 



The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, on Wednesday, reacted to reports linking the death of Chike Akunyili to its members.


Just before he was assassinated at NKPOR. Rest in peace brother.


IPOB alleged that the death of Chike was a pure political assassination, stressing that those behind the incident are contesting for the upcoming governorship election in Anambra State.


Chike, who is the husband of the former Director-General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, was killed on Tuesday on his way from Onitsha to Umuoji at Eke Nkpor.


Following the incident, IPOB members were accused of killing Chike.


However, Emma Powerful, spokesman of IPOB, said those who poisoned the late Dora are responsible for Chike’s death.


A statement by Powerful reads partly: “Those who killed Dora Akunyili’s husband killed his wife with poison are Fulani because she exposed Yar’adua’s death for Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to take over as President of failed Nigeria. They know themselves, Those that conspired to poisoned prof. Dora Akunyili, they’re contesting the governorship election in Anambra State today.


“We have no issues with Chike Akunyili and we don’t know him, those behind this act must stop this and stop using IPOB name, we don’t want anybody to blame IPOB because we must get them, this is pure political assassination going on in Anambra State now and it been perfected by Nigeria DSS security agents are doing this to paint IPOB back in the face of support and encouragement we are getting from our people.


“We know their plans and gimmick to discourage Biafrans who are encouraging and supporting us but it can’t work for them, in the near future those committing these atrocities in Imo and Anambra state will hear from IPOB and our people should not blame us because we must get them.”

Anambra 2021 Poll: PDP Loses Out, As INEC Finally Releases List Of Candidates, Okays Soludo

 Anambra 2021 Poll: PDP Loses Out, As INEC Finally Releases List Of Candidates, Okays Soludo



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may not participate in the forthcoming Anambra governorship election unless a miracle happens.

The Hotmedia.ng reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday, August 19, said the final list of candidates that would contest the governorship poll scheduled for November 6, would be published on October 7.


Hotmedia.ng gathered that in a list released on Thursday, August 19, the commission replaced Michael Umeoji with Chukwuma Soludo as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

According to the report, the Peoples Democratic Party is still excluded from the list of cleared candidates for the poll.

Festus Okoye, the INEC national commissioner and chairman (Information and Voter Education Committee), said this in a statement in Abuja on Thursday, August 19.

He said:

“The commission met today (Thursday, August 19, 2021) and deliberated on a number of issues, including the nomination of candidates for the Anambra governorship election holding on November 6, 2021. “The timetable and schedule of activities approved by the Commission on January 18, 2021, provides for the withdrawal/substitution of candidates in line with Sec. 35 of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended).”

Okoye further stated that the list of substitute candidates, which was attached to this press release has also been published on the commission’s website.

He, however, noted that the final list of candidates would be published on October 7, as provided in the timetable and schedule of activities for the election.

The News also reports that the APGA commended the INEC for doing the needful by publishing the name of Prof. Soludo and Onyekachikwu Gilbert Ibezim as the governorship and deputy governorship candidates of the party.

The party, however, regretted that INEC almost destroyed the nation’s democracy by publishing the name of somebody who had no business being there in the first place.

Anambra Election Will Not Hold – INEC

   Breaking News: It’s Clear Anambra Election Will Not Hold –  INEC




    The Independent National Electoral Commission says it is “deeply concerned” about the situation in the South-East especially as it concerns threats to disrupt the elections in the zone, Hotmedia.ng has learned.

INEC also explained that there could be constitutional crisis if it (commission) was unable to conduct general elections in the region.

The Chief Press Secretary to the commission’s chairman, Mr Rotimi Oyekanmi, disclosed this in an interview with our correspondent on Friday.

The Indigenous People of Biafra had threatened that no election would hold in the entire old Eastern region till a date for Referendum for Biafra independence is set.


He said the commission and the security agencies had been discussing and comparing notes on the security situation across the country generally.

As regards the South-East and particularly Anambra State, he expressed the hope that through collaboration, the security situation in the region would be brought under control.

Oyekanmi said, “The commission is deeply concerned about the security situation in the South-East. It is an established fact that INEC cannot carry out electoral activities under chaotic conditions.

“God forbid that INEC is unable to conduct such elections at the appointed time because this will lead to a constitutional crisis. The constitution did not envisage that such elections will not hold.

With regard to the Anambra governorship election scheduled for November 6, we are aware of the various efforts by the security agencies on the one hand, and all the men and women of goodwill in the region on the other, to calm things down.”

Borrowing to accumulate debt for next generations is criminal – Obasanjo tells Buhari govt




Former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo has reacted to the move by the Federal Government to take fresh loans amid outcries by Nigerians over incessant borrowing by the current administration for

Obasanjo, while speaking to Channels Television in South Africa, described as criminal, the alleged move to accumulate debt for the next generation to pay.

Obasanjo expressed worries that if the existing debt remains unserviced or unpaid by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, it might become a huge problem for successive governments.

DAILY POST recalls that the president, a few days ago, requested the approval of the National Assembly to borrow the fresh sums of $4,054,476,863 and €710 million.

Reacting, the former president who believes that borrowing is not a problem, however, stated that the challenge would be the utilization of the borrowed fund and the plan or capacity to pay back.

He said, “But if you are borrowing and accumulating debts for the next generation and the next generation after them, it is criminal. What are you borrowing for

If we are borrowing for recurrent expenditure, it is the height of folly. If we are borrowing for development that can pay for itself, that is understandable. Then the payment, how long will it take to pay itself?”

The Chelsea Players Receive Their UEFA Awards From Ceferin

 being rested at the weekend.





their CHELSEA PLAYERS RECEIVE THEIR UEFA AWARDS FROM CEFERIN

Before kick-off Tuchel, Jorginho, Mendy and N'Golo Kante were all presented with awards by UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin, having been unable to receive them in Istanbul during the Champions League draw due to international travel restrictions.

They and the rest of Chelsea’s European champions were given a massive welcome on to the pitch for our first Champions League game at Stamford Bridge since lifting the trophy, and that was soon followed by a great atmosphere for the start of the game as the supporters enjoyed the return of European nights to west London.

Cagey start

Zenit tried to come out fighting in attempt to quieten the home fans, and Malcom briefly looked like he might get free in space in the box inside the first couple of minutes, but Rudiger was on hand to snuff out the danger and then launch a searching ball forward into the channel for Mount.

While that attack came to nothing, it did allow us to break upfield and establish control over the opening exchanges from then on. However, the Russians were still carrying a threat and James had to be alert to head away a flicked-on cross with Claudinho poised to pounce at the back post.

For our part, we were doing well in possession until we reached the penalty area, but finding it hard to progress beyond that. Alonso failed to find Mount on the edge of the area, Lukaku couldn’t jump high enough to meet James’ cross and then Ziyech had a shot charged down from 20 yards.

Champions League: You won’t beat me again – Guardiola warns Tuchel




Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has vowed not to lose again to Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel, as they face each other in the Champions League final this Saturday.

Since he arrived at Stamford Bridge in January, Tuchel has played City twice.

The German has defeated Guardiola’s men on both occasions in the FA Cup semi-final and Premier League.

However, Guardiola is confident their previous matches will not be in his players minds come the big night.

Speaking to Rio Ferdinand on his YouTube channel, the Manchester City boss was asked whether the recent defeats will hand Tuchel’s side any kind of advantage, to which Guardiola said: “Absolutely nothing – zero.”

He continued, “I know how we prepared for this final and the reason why we came just two days after qualifying through the Dortmund game and after the semi-finals, you know in that moment – well deserved, congratulations to Chelsea, but it’s a new game, we’ll face them Saturday and see what happens

Fani-Kayode lied, never played any role in my defection to APC – Gov Umahi

Fani-Kayode lied, never played any role in my defection to APC – Gov Umahi




The Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, has rubbished the claim by former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, that he facilitated his defection to the All Progressives Congress, APC.


Umahi insisted that Fani-Kayode played no role in his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the APC.

Fani-Kayode had yesterday formally joined the APC at the State House where he was presented to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Speaking on his defection, the former minister claimed he played a role in Umahi, Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State, and Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State’s defection to APC.

Reacting, Umahi charged Fani-Kayode to withdraw his claim.

Speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Umahi maintained that Fani-Kayode was not aware of his defection to APC.

“I think he needs to withdraw that statement, he’s my good friend but, it was an insult on my person and the other governors


The man did not know when I moved, but incidentally he visited me and we discussed, and he said he was coming to join me with the other governors to declare.

“How will somebody in the PDP be instrumental to my moving?” he queried.

FLASHBACK: From Jonathan to Buhari: Fani-Kayode’s long history of going back to ‘vomit’




 The defection of former minister of Aviation, Femi – Fani Kayode to the All Progressives Congress, APC, is setting tongues wagging on social media.


While the Nigerian political scene is littered with cross-carpeting by politicians, the decamping of FFK still struck many due to the past statements by the former Aviation Minister.

He has been dancing around decamping for a while now, back in February, Governor Yahaya Bello announced the decamping of FFK to the APC.

The possibility of defecting became more glaring when Fani-Kayode attended the wedding of Yusuf Buhari’s son. The attendance of FFK at the wedding generated reactions on social media, which he responded with missives, by calling those criticising him as people “foaming in the mouth.”

In this report, DAILY POST explores the years of FFK making statements and going back on them.

Clueless Goodluck Jonathan


In 2014, FFK published a series of write-up on his website, “A President Without Balls” and the two updated versions of the same essay titled ”The Gutless Eunuch and Spirit of the Jagaban” and ”The Gutless Eunuch and the Lion King,” respectively.

An excerpt from one of the essays read, “As long as such a weak and uninspiring man (Former President Jonathan) remains the Commander-in-Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces please be ready for more casualties,” he stated about Jonathan.

“He must pull down every satanic alter that may have been erected in the Presidency and consecrate and re-dedicate the whole place to the Living God.”

While FFK was in APC, he was showering encomium on Bola Tinubu, while calling Jonathan all sorts of unprintable names, including “clueless.”

“A President who is as confused and as clueless as the comic character called Chancey Gardner in the celebrated 1970’s Peter Seller’s Hollywood blockbuster titled ”Being There”, he once said.


In 2015, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode was appointed the Director of Media and Publicity at Jonathan/Sambo Presidential Campaign Organisation, a position where he transmitted to praising Mr Jonathan.

In 2015, he stated that he “renounced those views about President Jonathan long ago.”

Upon his migration, he started calling APC a party with “Janjaweed ideology” adding that “The APC is a Boko Haramite party that is for Muslim extremists only and a handful of Christians who really don’t know what they have got themselves into.”

When Buhari was sick in 2018, FFK was at the forefront of the “Buhari is dead campaign.”

“Buhari is dead and he never came back from London. Only his body did. They invoked the spirit of Jubril and placed it in Buhari’s body. It is a common ritual among satanists.”

Religion also appears to be a tool that Mr FFK deploys with so much ease.


Bigotry statement on Igbo

Of recent, FFK has been a major supporter of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

When Kanu was incarcerated in 2017, FFK was one of the main people that visited him in prison and even called him his brother.

But most people had stated then that what most followers of Kanu may not know is that FFK has a long history of bigotry against people from the eastern part of the country.

In 2013, FFK published an article entitled: The Bitter Truth About The Igbo. He justified the pogrom  in 1966 by blaming the Igbos for a number of crisis.

“It is that same attitude of ”we own everything”, ”we must have everything” and ”we must control everything” that the Igbo settlers manifested in the northern region in the late 50’s and early and mid-60’s that got them into so much trouble up there with the Hausa-Fulani and that eventually led to the terrible pogroms where almost one hundred thousand of them were killed in just a few days


The Igbos had lamented that FFK had no regard for even the memory of Odumegwu Ojukwu, the leader of the short-lived Biafra republic, when he claimed that he “had a long-standing and intimate relationship with Miss Bianca Onoh.”

Bigotry against Fulani

FFK’s favourite target practice is the Fulani, he even took it to a bizarre level by alleging that Fulani have sex with cow for sexual gratification and ritual.

“The Fulani is obsessed to conquer the South and take it from the ancestral owners like they did to the Hausas. The South owns the Ports and oil. It owns the best companies and rainforests. That is what they secretly want and not grazing land for cows,” he said in an op-ed.https://www.google.com/amp/s/dailypost.ng/2018/02/20/femi-fani-kayode-fulanisation-nigeria-perfidy-british-part-2/%3famp=1

Recall that when it suites FFK, he exploits his Fulani heritage which he is always keen to brandish.

“My grandfather, Sheik Nurudeen Sa’ I’d, who was half Fulani and half Yoruba, got married to my grandmother, Alhaja Abeke Sa’ id (nee Williams) who was a pure Yoruba woman.”


His disdain for Fulani did not stop him from taking a chieftaincy title from the Shinkafi Emirate.

Embracing Yahaya Bello he once cursed

During a spat with Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, FFK did not mince words when speaking his mind.

“Gov. Yahaya Bello; when I wrote that this boy was a useful idiot and an accursed slave, some said I was being harsh.

“Truth is that he is worse than that. His mental faculties are non-functional,” he wrote on Twitter.

But as always, times have changed, and since their new friendship which started in February, FFK has been going out of his way to defend Mr Bello.

Last week, he even defended Bello on the accusation of diverting bailout funds to a private account.

Changing stance on Buhari

FFK once described President Buhari as weak, incompetent, sectional, bloodthirsty, genocidal and wicked

Adding that “I would rather die than join APC or bow to Buhari.”

While this story is still developing, it is possible to start seeing some good remarks on Buhari from FFK based on his antecedent.

Meanwhile, Fani-Kayode had at several fora said that he does not play politics of do-or-die and does not also believe in politics of bitterness and exclusivity.

While reacting to the backlash that greeted his association with politicians at the wedding of Buhari’s son, Yusuf, FFK argued that there is no permanent enemy in politics

Biafra: Obasanjo tells Buhari what to do with Nnamdi




Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has said President Muhammadu Buhari must meet with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, before the ongoing crisis gets out of handadded




Talking to Newsweek, Obasanjo, who as president met with Niger Delta militant leaders in 2006 to stop attacks on oil installations, said: “I don’t see anything wrong in that [Buhari meeting with Kanu]. I would not object to that; if anything, I would encourage it.

“I would want to meet Kanu myself and talk to people like him, people of his age, [and ask:] ‘What are your worries?’ Not only from the southeast but from all parts of Nigeria.”

He said the Army’s “heavy boot” response to pro-Biafra sentiment is “not the solution” and added that the secession craved by IPOB, is not the way forward either.

“We need to satisfy the youth in job creation, in wealth creation, in giving them a better, fulfilled life, in giving them hope for the future. There’s no easy way out,” Obasanjo added
