[ Masterweb Reports: Igbeaku Orji Reports ] - The United Progressive Party (UPP), Abia State charpter has taken the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abia State and Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to the cleaners, describing his administration in the state as a disaster. Abia chairman of UPP, Mr Menelik Ukpai, who addressed journalists at the end of a stakeholders and State Working Committee’s meeting at the Nsukka Street secretariat of the party said the present administration of Ikpeazu had not only toed the line of its predecessors but become the worse government in all indices of government.
 
He said: "Abians have no reason to vote PDP again after years of failure, it makes no sense, there is no logic in that, the people are fed up, Abians are exhausted, any source of relief from what they have now we are very confident that they will grab it. The party (UPP) has positioned herself to offer Abians a better alternative.
 
"The time to correct such anomaly is now by voting them out and the realistic thing here is that by virtue of his failure, he has already made it clear that 2019 is open for every other candidate to come and win except the PDP." If we look at the national posture of the All Progressives Congress (APC), it’s obvious that the party has nothing to offer to the South East, if you look at All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) the level of division particularly in Abia State, they have about four factions, each claiming to be the authentic one, when you look at these parties it becomes obvious that they have nothing to offer to the State."

[ Masterweb Reports: ABN Reporting ] - Chief Okereke who is one of the pioneers of Internet/Information Technology not only in Nigeria but in Africa as a whole with publications such as Nigeria Masterweb and Africa Masterweb, in a press statement made available to Newsmen in Umuahia, decried that Abia, God’s own State, has become a major scapegoat to bad governance, bad choice of leaders and, above all, an atmosphere of nonchalance and passive carelessness from us towards our political future.
 
"Take for instance, the Golden Guinea Breweries, Ulonna Farm Settlement and several other industries which Abia State was formally famed for: they have all gone moribund through several regimes of government. Different governments have ruled the State but the seeming inherent unwillingness in the hearts of hitherto elected leaders has maintained a policy of absolute neglect. Worst, few places of note, like the Ariaria market and the expressway, are gradually becoming dump sites for refuse. The led (people), as earlier said, are equally culpable due to the ‘I don’t care’ posture we adopted towards politics and governance" He enthused.
 
Chief Okereke insisted that there is hope for Abia state despite the many years of darkness if the people will embrace the reality, "At this critical stage in our nation’s polity, especially as it affects our dear own state, Abia, and the several unrests and demonstrations of dissatisfaction by our teeming unemployed youths mostly occasioned by vehement, willful and perpetual bad governance and politics of self, there calls for a deeper reflection on the way we, as a people, perceive and react to politics.
 
Today, thanks to men of good will, democracy which is the government of the people, by the people and for the people has granted us closer access into how we are represented by our elected sons and daughters.
 
It has also empowered us with our basic human rights and the rights to demand their implementation whenever and wherever we feel neglected, marginalized or threatened either by regional/political rivalry or by our very own elected representatives, he declared.
 
He speaks further on the motivation to accept the challenge to serve his people, "As a "son of the soil" and true Abian in every sense and having taken time to study both the political terrain of our dear state and the deficiencies occasioned, not by our inabilities and unworthiness but by sheer neglect and nonchalance, I have, this time and finally, bowed to pressure of cries for help from my Abia brothers and sisters to step out and show true, refined, functional, absolutely productive, enduring and efficient leadership.
 
Chief Okereke declared that his government will be open, transparent with probity and accountability as its watchword. "Reforming Abia and bringing her into the full statue of the State for God takes more than sheer desire to lead, it takes absolute and unflinching resolve to do the needful.
 
All moribund industries to be resuscitated and every meaningful and meaningless excuse against it removed; Agriculture will have its full place and will run in full capacity to enable us produce enough for ourselves and for exportation.
 
Abians have full constitutional right to use the basic resources given them by God – resources like land and waterways. We will process the modalities for and begin the dredging of the Azumini axis to enable it grant, not only Abians but Ndigbo access to the sea. To pilot our dear state to full productive capacity, people will be recognized and employed by merit. We will reconstruct Aba to reflect its true nature: The Enyimba City."
 
He speaks about the all Hail Biafra Anthem, "By His Grace, I am a gifted poet and composer of Hymns/anthems; my composition ‘God Bless Africa’ won the African Union Anthem Competition and one of my other compositions "All Hail Biafra (Cry of A Biafran Child)" is a household song amongst us. Different oppressed or marginalized groups find solace in All Hail Biafra as anthem. I cried for Ndigbo at the end of the Biafran war and I shed tears as I prepare to lead the redemption of Abia State. I have heeded calls to aspire for the number one seat in our dear state.
 
I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the leader of our great party UPP, Chief Chekwas Okorie for giving the people the party platform to choose the best to represent them for posterity. Vote for me as your next governor and you will no longer cry nor suffer in Abia.

[ Masterweb Reports: Ojoma Akor reports ] - The World Health Organization (WHO) has promised to donate 20 million doses of vaccines annually towards eradicating yellow fever in the country.
 
Briefing newsmen yesterday in Abuja, WHO Representative, Dr Fiona Braka said the organization was ready to assist the country in achieving total vaccination of the populace in line with the Elimination of Yellow Epidemics (EYE) by 2026.
 
"The global community is committed to this course and has pledged 20 million doses annually to achieve the target despite the global vaccine shortfall," Braka said.
 
There were recent outbreaks of yellow fever in Kogi, Kwara, Zamfara, Niger, Kebbi and Nasarawa states.
 
Government will kick off the second phase of the preventive mass campaign against yellow fever in four states; Kogi, Kwara , Zamfara and Borno states today. The first phase was completed in 2014 covering 20 states and the Federal Capital Territory. About 10.4 million people were vaccinated in the exercise.
 
The second phase preventive mass campaign targets persons between 09 months to 45 years.
 
Braka said people could be protected from yellow fever through vaccination, saying that the planned campaign was part of the preventive measures to halt the spread and also protect the people.
 
Executive Director, National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) Dr Faisal Shuaib said the global non availability of Yellow Fever vaccines resulted in the plan to phase the campaign for the next nine years.

[ Masterweb Reports ] - The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), has attributed most road crashes on Nigerian roads to human factors and not witchcraft as believed by some people in the country.
 
Sector Commander of the corps in Imo, Mr Joseph Aremu made this known in Owerri on Wednesday while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
 
The sector commander advised motorists in the country to always stick to traffic rules and obey all road signs.
 
Aremu said that contrary to belief by some Nigerians that road crashes was a manipulation of witches, major causes of most auto crashes were over speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol and bad tyres.
 
According to him, a driver will lose sense of judgment if he decides to drive under the influence of alcohol and when the right judgment is lost, the next result is auto crash.
 
The commander said that the corps in Imo were doing everything possible to ensure that road users stick to traffic rule, adding that the command will go tough on traffic offenders.
 
Aremu said that though road crashes had reduced in the state, the FRSC would continue to partner with relevant sister agencies and stakeholders to ensure that the road was safe for all. (NAN)

[ Masterweb Reports: John Chuks Azu reports ] - A Federal High Court in Abuja has refused an application by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) challenging the proscription order banning its activities.
 
Justice Adamu Kafarati yesterday held that the proscription order made ex-parte on September 20 last year was properly brought by the Attorney General of the Federation with the approval of the President.
 
He ruled that the application seeking to vacate the proscription order was unmeritorious and deserved to be dismissed. He also awarded the sum of N500, 000 cost against IPOB.
 
IPOB counsel, Ifeanyi Ejiofor had argued that the September 20 gazette was invalid as it was signed by the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, when under the provisions of Section 2 of the Terrorism Prevention Act, only the President can give such approval.
 
Meanwhile, Ejiofor has expressed intention to appeal the judgment of the court.

[ Masterweb Reports: SKC Ogbonnia reports ] - The Hand Shake Across the Niger summit has come and gone. Though the event was fraught with strategic shortfalls, the move ought to be encouraged by all, because disunity in Southern Nigeria has been a stumbling block to Nigeria’s democracy.
 
Here is why and how:
 
A definite problem that dogged the Nigerian democracy for ages was lack of dynamic opposition due to prefoliations of political parties. This phenomenon contributed to systemic dictatorship and, by consequence, a history of power abuse. The god of democracy came to the rescue by provoking the creation of the All Progressive Alliance (APC). Unfortunately, however, the desired outcome has been elusive because of another dimension of dictatorship in form of primordial ethnic tyranny.
 
The gist is that disunity in Southern Nigeria has emboldened a minority group in the North to assume absolute authority in the affairs of the nation. Instead of the government of the people by the people, Nigeria has become a government of a Northern oligarchy by the oligarchy and for the oligarchy. The result has been an absence of the checks and balances central to an effective democratic governance and, of course, continued abuse of power.
 
Think of any debate or policy on Nigeria, be it constitutional amendment, restructuring of the country or what have you. When all is said and done, the final decision is hardly based on the salient points raised through the debates but simply on what the North wants, whatever that north means. Worse still, instead of the "North" considering the opinions or the needs of the Northern masses, the final say in the region—or rather Nigeria as a whole—is typically the sole province of the Northern oligarchy, a clique of wealthy Northern traditional leaders and retired army generals.
 
The problem does not end there.
 
The Northern oligarchy exploits the disunity in the South to a satanic proportion. It does not care to turn a Southern Judas into a Muhammad insofar its agenda is accomplished. Notice how the "North" embraces notoriously corrupt Southern politicians once they claim solidarity with any vision of the oligarchy. Also consider that any consequence for corrupt elements in Nigeria depends on the degree of their relationship with the same shameless plutocrats.
 
The cumulative effective is a whistling impunity in the land, and no region has been insulated from the after-effects. The most unfortunate, however, is that the innocent Northern masses are the worst victims.
 
The solution is where projects like the "Handshake Across the Niger" come in. Similar to the path to effective leadership in a multiparty democracy, there is the need for regional equipoise between the North and South. Such approach has the potential to checkmate the perceived Northern hegemony over the South, reduce culture of impunity and, consequently, allow genuine development in the country.
 
In short, the Handshake Across the Niger is designed for the South to emulate its Northern counterpart to finally demonstrate common sense in terms of unity. For instance, though the North is made up of a multitude of ethnic groups, the region typically speaks with one voice through central organizations. In other words, instead of masquerading with beggarly ethnic antiquities, such as Ohaneze Ndigbo, Afenifere or the various Niger Delta outfits, the entire South should simply promote central bodies akin to the different umbrella Arewa groups.
 
The Southern leaders must be careful to avoid a fall before the rise.
 
The recent Hand Shake Across the Niger is a bold step forward, no doubt, but its strategy is tangentially myopic. Such strategy has already given rise to the emerging nickname, "The Igbo/Yoruba Summit", which is enough to create peppering mistrust among the minorities in the South. It can be misconstrued as sowing seeds of socio-cultural hegemony—so soon—by the Igbo and the Yoruba over not only the smaller ethnic groups in the South but also other like minds in the true North. That is why the Southern leaders must learn to embrace umbrella southern organizations over tribal charters. One hardly hears of Hausa Union or Fulani Assembly. Neither does one hear of separate fora for North-West, North-East or North-Central governors or their legislators. What we know is North or Arewa, an Hausa term for the north, not minding that the region is far from being monolithic, ethnically or religiously.
 
The South should also guard against unrepentant sycophants who, in attempt to curry favor from the Northern oligarchy, will stop at nothing until the vision for southern unity is frustrated. That is precisely how they frustrated the original Southern Governors Forum initiated in 2001 by the visionary Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
 
Unity in the South must not be seen as a coup against any group. It is only a means to an end; the end being the overall unity of Nigeria and effective democratic leadership. It can also be convenient to continue to heap blames on the Northern oligarchy and its minions—most of whom are the beneficiaries of bad leadership in Nigeria—for thwarting unity in the South. But that is foolhardy. The blame lies squarely on the South, which has historically allowed itself to be used to frustrate the desired Southern unity.

[ Masterweb Reports: Comrade James Ezema reports ] - Nigeria's Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Turkur Buratai has won the Africa Man of the Year 2017 Award for his personal commitment to anti-insurgency war in Nigeria and, by extension, West Africa sub-region as well "for being rare officer, a real gentleman, whose patriotic zeal in executing the war against Boko Haram is exemplary".
 
He was named as the Africa Man of the Year while the Nigerian Army won the Best Institution of the Year 2017 for their supreme sacrifices and relentless efforts to clear the country of not only the Boko Haram insurgents but all forms of criminal elements for citizens to coexist peacefully.
 
The confirmation of this prestigious honour on the Chief of Army Staff and the Nigerian Army as an Institution was announced in Abuja by the Pan-African amalgam, the Coalition For Governance and Leadership in Africa.
 
According to a statement signed by the group's Award and Privileges Committee Chairman, Okpokwu Ogenyi, the coalition also noted that as an infantry officer, Lt. General Tukur Buratai's "professional approach to operational planning to fight insurgency is highly plausible.
 
"For us, the successes so far made in the war against terrorism in Nigeria came as a combination of good leadership enhanced by motivation through enhanced troops morale by the land forces under General Buratai.
 
"Records available to to us show that, General Buratai's personal sacrifice, commitment, zeal, and determination towards eradicating insurgency in Nigeria, and by extension the whole of West Africa, have not only resulted in the defeat of Boko Haram in Nigeria but has promoted regional peace and stability across African Nations", the coalition stated.
 
The group added that "Pockets of attacks by degraded and fleeing Boko Haram insurgents not withstanding, the Nigerian military as an institution have made unquantifiable supreme sacrifices and given their all to ensure that we all coexist in peace and harmony in the year under review."
 
The Coalition For Good Governance and Leadership in Africa noted that the winners emerged after its Award and Privileges Committee "considered numerous nominations from various organizations and individuals across Africa, disclosing that after a tedious screening exercise, the two nominees came tops.
 
The leadership award is an annual Honour bestowed only on two African Leaders or institutions that have distinguished themselves in promoting regional peace, infrastructure, wealth creation, food security, education, and health, among others.
 
Some eminent Africans who have received the honour in the past included Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Dr. Atta Mills (late), Mrs Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Monday Riku Morgan, to mention a few.
