2014 Budget: Jonathan Has Declared War On Rivers – APC

0

The All Progressives Congress (APC) said that President Goodluck Jonathan had declared war on the people of Rivers State with the omission of the state from capital projects that would be executed in the country in the 2014 fiscal year.

The party described the development as condemnable and wondered why Jonathan would stoop so low to give the Rivers State a zero allocation in the 2014 budget of the Federal Ministry of Works, due to his political disagreement with Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.

In a statement issued in Port Harcourt yesterday and signed by senior special assistant on media to the interim chairman of APC in the state, Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, it lauded the member representing Andoni/Opobo/Nkoro federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Dakuku Peterside, for staging a walk-out during the budget defence of the Federal Ministry of Works, in protest over the development.

The statement reads in part, “We have learnt with shock and disbelief, of the zero allocation to Rivers State in the 2014 budget of the Federal Ministry of Works. What this means is that Rivers State will not receive any federal government project this year.

“No one is deceived by the claim of the minister of works, Architect Mike Onolememen, while defending the ministry’s budget on Tuesday before the House of Representatives Committee on Works, that neither the federal government nor his ministry was at war with Rivers State. If that is the case, then what could have warranted the omission of Rivers State from the list of states that will enjoy federal government presence in terms of capital project execution this year? If this is not war, then what is it?

“This is very sad and condemnable. It is simply unbelievable that President Jonathan could stoop so low as to direct the Ministry of Works to bypass Rivers State just because he has some differences with Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi.

“We must, in this regard, commend Hon. Dakuku Peterside, Chairman House of Representatives Committee on Petroleum Resources (Downstream), for proving to be a worthy representative of the people of Rivers State by staging a walk-out in protest over the zero allocation to the state during the Works Ministry’s budget defence.

“A breakdown of details of on-going highway and bridge projects in Rivers State shows that no single allocation was given to such projects as construction of Eleme Junction Flyover and dualisation of the access roads to Onne Port in Rivers State; access roads to Eleme Port Harcourt Refinery; construction of Bodo-Bonny Road with a bridge across the Opobo Channel and the rehabilitation of the Abalamabie (Allison Hart) bridge. It will be recalled that Rivers State government awarded and completed Eleme Junction Flyover project in the year 2009.

“If we may ask, what joy does President Jonathan derive in continuing this ill-advised war against Rivers State and her people? Under the watch of President Jonathan, Rivers State has lost much revenue as our oil wells were transferred to neighbouring states. They have taken away the oil wells in Soku and given them to his home state, Bayelsa. They have taken the ones between Oyigbo and Etche and given them to Abia. So, our resources continue to dwindle. We used to make between N19billion and N20billion; now we are doing N13billion.”

* Scene of accident

The Federal Road Safety Commission’s Unit Commander, in Kontagora Local Government Area of Niger, Mr Pius Bagoohlepeng, disclosed this to newsmen on Friday.

The commander said the accident involved 78 persons with 34 reported dead on the spot while 30 were injured.

He said both the remains of the dead and the injured have been conveyed to hospital

He said the accident involved two articulated vehicles, a trailer conveying cattle and an oil tanker.

According to him, the vehicles had a head on collusion, which sent the trailer tumbling into the bridge bed at about 11pm on Wednesday.

Bagoohlepeng said the trailer was coming from Gadan Zaimari, Zamfara State, and was heading for Lagos.

He alleged that the driver of the trailer was believed to be on high speed minutes before the crash.

Kogi State University lecturer, Muhammad Nazeef, who is accused of having links with the Boko Haram, has been denied bail by an Abuja High Court on Friday.

Apart from Nazeef, two others were also denied bail and they are, Salami Abdullahi and Umar Musa.

The judge, Gabriel Kolawole, while condemning the recent student massacre in a Federal Government College, Buni yadi, Yobe State, said it was the duty of the court to assist the government in addressing security issues in the country.

Mr. Kolawole said the consistent killings in the North East was one of the reasons for denying the suspects bail.

While stating that the court had the discretion to grant bail, Mr. Kolawale said that exerting such depends on the gravity of the charges, punishment, criminal record of the accused persons, and the possibility that the accused persons might commit the same offence again.

“I am a bit constrained that granting the accused persons bail will be very strict, but to do this will lead to the court imposing outlandish bail conditions.

“This may not be a period for the court to embark on fanciful and sterile judicial analysis so that the court cannot send out wrong signals,” Mr. Kolawale said.

He granted an accelerated hearing of case and said trial will commence on March 18.

Mr. Nazeef, a lecturer in the Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies at the Kogi State University, was on November 20, 2013 paraded alongside four others by the SSS, at its headquarters in Abuja. The suspects were accused of running a Boko Haram cell with Mr. Nazeef as leader.

His daughter, Summayya Muhammad, also stated later that her father had always condemned the Boko Haram’s activities and that tapes of his messages could prove that.

* Maku

The Minister of Information, Mr Labaran Maku, has said Nigeria is currently discussing with neighbouring countries to tackle the problem of insurgency.

Maku, who was the Supervising Minister of Defence, made the statement in Abuja on Friday while handing over to the new Minister of Defence, Gen. Aliyu Gusau.

He said some of the recent attacks of the insurgents were carried out by elements from across Nigeria’s borders but that Nigeria was discussing with its neighbours to address the situation.

“I want to also emphasise that a lot of the elements have been coming from across the boundary and we have had occasions to discuss that very frankly.

“We believe that Nigeria is also in touch with their neighbours to contain the situation.

“I commend the armed forces for facing the challenges head on, and we must change the story as quickly as we can because it is crucial for this country.

“ I know for sure that our armed forces have been doing a great job.”

Maku urged the armed forces to remain loyal to the constitution and President Goodluck Jonathan.

A 32-year-old man, identified as Babangida Sule who resides in Maisamari Nguroje Ward of Sardauna local government area of Taraba State has been reportedly killed his father, Sule Marwa, on Wednesday, for refusing to approve his engagement to the lady he wanted to marry.

A councillor of the ward, Jauro Dahiru Hammawa, said that the news of the ugly incident got to him while he was in his house.

“I got the message that Babangida had butchered his father using a sharp cutlass. When the information got to me, I took a motorcycle and quickly rushed to the scene of the incident, where I saw the deceased lying in a pool of blood. When I removed the cloth covering his face, I saw that it had been cut in places using a sharp cutlass.

“We carried a blanket and folded the body into it. When I asked to know the whereabouts of his son, I was told that he had run away.  I quickly rushed to the police station where I reported the matter and the police and vigilante group conducted a thorough search for the son. They found him hidden in the bushes near a stream and arrested him,” Jauro said.

Jauro also added that after the accused was arrested, the community arranged for conveyance of the corpse and the accused to the Police Divisional Headquarters in Gembu for further interrogation.

At the time of filing this report, the body of the late Marwa had been released to his family members by the police for burial while his son was still detained at the police.

REASONS WHY MALAYSIAN POLICE HARRASS NIGERIANS


1) AMBASSADOR- The Nigeria Ambassador in Malaysia HIS EXCELLENCY, AMBASSADOR BELLO SHEHU RINGIM, NIGERIA is  the most corrupt Nigerian in diaspora. ranging from selling diplomatic passports, conniving with malaysian police to arrest Nigerians and deport them and also setting them up with drugs case so as to make money in terms of releasing or granting them bail. Being money concious he has said it before that Nigerians here dont pay homeage to him. (We are students your excellency and you dont enxpect us to spend $1 on you SIR, because you are appointed by the Nigeria government not by our parents.)

2) Ambassador: The ambassador and so-called workers in the Nigeria embassy demands more than the actual amount for new passport or replacements of passports whereby a student passport is misplaced or expired. The embassy demands more than one thousand dollars for new passport and takes days.

3) Ambassador: Nobody, i repeat nobody have ever questioned the Malaysian Government why they harass students knowing fully well that these students when they summit their passport  for visa renewal, visa-holding letters are normally given to them by the Malaysian immigration yet their police and immigration during raiding still arrest and deport legal students having these letters. Of all these activities, the Ambassador is fully aware and his not showing concern about its fellow Nigerians. Although

4) The ambassador believes that everybody in Malaysia is not a student. Meanwhile the Malaysia Airport(KLIA) is one of the best airport in the world combating drugs and illegal immigrants. 80 percent of Nigerians in Malaysia apart from the once the AMBASSADOR sold diplomatic passport to are students. Be it a small scale school or International Schools in Malaysia Your excellency sir all fingers are not equal.

5) Imagine the security at the gate of the Nigerian Embassy (An Indian and  Bangladesh)  molesting Nigerians in front of the Embassy just because they want to go into their own Embassy to get their passport renewed yet the Ambassador will show no concern and sometime drive by. (Ambassador)

6) The ambassador told the Malaysian Government not to renew visas for Nigerians or hold it for a long period of time with this we get arrested, detained to pay a ransom before finally being deported.

Just mentioned but a few of the fraudulent activities of the Nigeria High Commission in Malaysia, NEXT will be an Open letter to Mr President (GEJ) if nothing is done within the next 72hrs not only an open letter but just like a tip of the 2011 riot that Niger Delta Amnesty student we will storm the Nigeria Embassy and the world will hear your corruption Your Excellency.
