APC Speaks On Zoning

The Enugu State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Ben Nwoye, has raised concerns that politicians particularly from the northern senatorial district of the state are stoking political tensions.

He also said that the next governorship of the state will not be based on zoning and sub-ethnic origin, but on competence, capacity and a clear-cut programme that would better the lot of the people.

Nwoye stated at the weekend that the goings on in the state far ahead of 2023 are huge distractions to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi whose second term is yet to go half way.


Osinbajo Speaks

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, during the weekend, described the killing of over 22 innocent rural dwellers by Fulani herdsmen in four communities of Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State as sad and unacceptable.

He stressed that the dastardly act cannot be defended as the Federal Government will ensure justice for the victims of the unfortunate incident in the State.


Emir Advises Governor Bello

The security initiatives of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State got a boost on Sunday when the Emir of Kano, Dr Aminu Ado Bayero, praised the government for its watertight strategies against insecurity in the state.

The Emir charged the governor to sustain his onslaught against criminal elements in his state.

The Royal Father emphasized that no society develops in the absence of peace, as peace is the foundation of every societal growth, adding that when one segment of the society is in turmoil, all others are ultimately open to inherent dangers and resultant effects.


Hausa Community Pleads For Calm

Hausa community in Imo State has called for calmness as 4 northerners yesterday were killed by unknown gunmen at Umuaka in Orlu Local Government Area of the State.

Briefing newsmen, Senior Special Adviser to the governor, Ibrahim Suleman while attributing the killings to the handiwork of the detractors of the State government however urged the northerners not to retaliate just as he affirmed that the State government is already doing something to ensure peace prevail in the community once more.


Anglican Bishop Speaks On Banditry

Bishop of Kaduna, Anglican Communion, Rt Revd Timothy Yahaya, has expressed the fear that unless God intervenes, the fight to end banditry and kidnapping by security operatives may remain elusive.

Fielding questions from newsmen following his Easter message to Nigerians, Bishop Yahaya said his fear is based on the fact those fighting the war against insecurity are demoralized with obsolete weapons and lack of you.

He also added that there are betrayals within security forces, causing leakage of information that had led to ambush of security personnel by bandits on many occasions.


Olusegun Obasanjo Sends Message To Nigerian Government

Olusegun Obasanjo and Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, have asked the Nigerian government to settle and rehabilitate bandits who are willing to surrender.

SaharaReporters had earlier reported that Gumi and some religious leaders met with the former President in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital on Sunday.

At the end of the meeting, both men issued a joint statement on what they discussed.

They urged the Nigerian government to take the issue of insecurity within ECOWAS in order to seek a regional solutions.
