I Have No Issues With Oshiomhole, Others Says Araraume

Published

on

Our attention has been drawn to a misleading’ mischievous and false report published on the front page of the Announcer Newspaper of 19th June 2020 titled: OSHIOMHOLE’S OUSTER AS APC NATIONAL CHAIR: ARARAUME, ROCHAS’ CAMPS IN JUBILATION”.

In the report in contention, the newspaper stated that the supporters of senator lfeanyi Araraume were jubilating over the controversial removal of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress(APC) by the Appeal Court. It added that the jubilation was because Comrade Oshiomhole is the backbone of the Imo state Governor, senator Hope Uzodinma and would never support Senator Araraume’s Senatorial ambition’

The wicked intent of the sponsors of this publication was to create the impression that senator Araraume is in support of the unfortunate crisis in APC and the removal of Comrade Oshiomhole as National Chairman.

In addition, the publishers also set out on a mission to blackmail senator Araraume with the report and put a wedge between him and comrade Oshiomhole.

It is the figment of the imagination of the sponsors of this report to insinuate that comrade Oshiomhole would never support senator Araraume’s ambition to contest the impending lmo North Senatorial election. lt is also irresponsible journalism to assume that Governor Uzodinma and Senator Araraume are enmeshed in a Comrade Oshiomhole would be opposed to the political interests of Senator Araraume.

We make bold to state categorically that Senator Araraume and Comrade Oshimohole have always had a cordial relationship that has spanned several decades. Therefore, no amount of blackmail or yellow journalism by hirelings would endanger this relationship’

Furthermore, Senator Araraume and his supporters will never be parties to any conflict that would affect the fortunes of the APC at State or National Levels.

Our position is that the current crisis in APC is a mere storm in a teacup that will soon be calm. Those who intend to make capital of it would reap shame and disappointment.

Senator Araraume does not intend to engage in any conflict with anyone in APC. Whatever ambition he has, will be pursued legitimately without rancor or ill-will towards anyone.

Finally, it is wicked and satanic to drag him into a conflict that has nothing to do with him and his supporters.

Signed:

Comrade Bryan Agu

S.A. media to Senator lfeanyi Araraume.

Chidi Ibeh, Ohanaeze Ndigbo-led factional leader has declared that it will help the IPOB Eastern Security Network and other indigenous security agencies to stop any sort of crime in the South-East region.

Ibeh, in a statement by Secretary-General Kalu Mkpa, a media assistant to the factions, noted that the body’s leadership has moved to put all stakeholders in Igbo land on the same page, including Southeast Governors, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and youths, in order to defend the territorial integrity of the Igbo nation against invasion by herdsmen and extremists.

Recall that Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, had launched the Eastern Security Network, ESN. He had said “ESN was formed to protect the Southeast from marauding Fulani herdsmen and other criminal elements.”

In Sunday’s declaration, the Ibeh-led group stated, “whether it is called the IPOB Eastern Security Network or the proposed Southeast Governors’ or Ogbunigwe Joint Security Office, we will ensure that potential invasions from outside will be stopped without further delay.”

Ibeh said it would assist in the full realization of “Enyimba Economic City” Aba, the reconstruction of the Enugu coal mine, the resuscitation of Port Harcourt-Maiduguri railways with rail links and links with all Igbo state capitals and commercial cities, in particular the Onitsha-Owerri-Aba connection, on the economic development of Igbo territory.

Stop Buhari from selling national assets, National Assembly urged

Published

on

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) urged President Ahmed Lawan of the Senate and Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila of the House of Representatives to stop President Buhari from selling public assets to finance the budget for 2021.

Instead of selling national properties, SERAP charged the government with cutting the wages and allowances of senior officials to resolve the rising deficit and borrowing rate.

In a letter signed by the Deputy Director of the CSO, Kolawole Oluwadare, dated 16 January 2021, the organization claimed that the National Assembly has a statutory and supervisory duty to protect valuable public property and to ensure responsible budgetary spending.

It noted that the disposal of valuable public assets to finance the budget was not in the public interest and would be counter-productive, as corruption and mismanagement would be vulnerable to action.

It will disrupt the social contract with Nigerians, leave the government worse off, and damage the nation in the long run, the rights group added.

It called for a freeze on spending for members of the legislature and the presidency in some parts of the budget, such as poverty and furniture allowances, entertainment allowances, foreign travel, purchasing vehicles and utilities.

The letter enjoined the legislature to closely scrutinize and work with the presidency to address the current process of budgeting and address systemic corruption.
