Politics / For A New Nigeria, Peter Obi Is The Man - South South Business Summit by Abel7777: 9:58am On Jan 31
It was a moment of great patriotism, huge passion for Country and unequaled commitment to national growth and development. It was the OBI-DATTI South South Business Summit at the Presidential Hotel in Port Harcourt. And the event put together by the OBI-DATTI PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN South South caucus and the BIG TENT ably driven by Deacon Chris Iyawoye and his Team did not disappoint.

It was a Fund Raising Outing that metamorphosed into an intellectual dialogue tasked with RAISING THE RIGHT LEADERSHIP FOR A NEW NIGERIA. The Chairman of the event was former President Olusegun Obasanjo ably represented by Pastor Ituah Ighodalo. The Guest Speaker was Rev. Matthew Hassan Kukah ably represented by very erudite Rev. Fr. Dr. Francis Tetris. Prof Pat Utomi the Chief Driver and Leader of the BIG TENT and others like Prof Chris Mustapha Nwaokobia Jnr the Director Of Public Affairs And Lead Spokesperson of the BIG TENT, Veteran Olawale Okunniyi the Director Of Grassroot Mobilization of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council, Chief Ken Olisa, Comrade Delly Ajufo, Hilda Dokubo and several candidates of the Labour Party in the South South made the event.

Indeed it was a night of Deep Thoughts, Music, Dialogue and Passionate Ideological Engagement for the good of Country. Peter Gregory Obi and his Team comprising the ever agile National Chairman of the Labour Party Comrade Julius Abure, the relentless Amazon of the cause Aisha Yesufu and others were on hand to add colour and class to a Summit that has remained in the mouth and the hearts of the South South People.

The Representative of the Chairman of the Day Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Pastor Ituah Ighodalo in his speech implored Nigerians to heed the clarion call to Take Back Nigeria for good. Prof Pat Utomi talked about the need to return Nigeria to the path of industry, hard-work and comparative competitive development. The man who pioneered the initiative Deacon Chris Iyawoye told the audience in his well delivered speech that in Peter Gregory Obi we have found a Man who can truly take our Country from Consumption to Production. Veteran Wale Okunniyi challenged the audience to intensify the grassroot presence of LP for resounding victory at the polls. And Prof Chris Mustapha Nwaokobia Jnr was unequivocal in the call for Obidients to preach the gospel of a NEW NIGERIA like our lives depend on it, because only through capacity, competency and commitment to new values in leadership can Nigeria be great.

The Representative of the Guest Speaker of the night Rev. Dr. Matthew Hassan Kukah, Rev. Fr. Dr. Francis Tetris was eloquent and didactic in handling the Topic of the day ditto Raising The Right Leadership For A New Nigeria. He urged the audience and indeed Nigerians to vote wisely and vote for leaders with character, integrity, capacity and competency. He underscored the fact that only committed and visionary political leaders can transform the nation for good.

Comrade Julius Abure the National Chairman of the Labour Party challenged the audience to make real the love and the passion they have for candidate Peter Gregory Obi and Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed by voting for LP at the Polls come February 25, and March 11, 2023. He re-echoed the very popular cliche 'with Peter Obi a New Nigeria is POssible'.

And then the stage lit up with the man of the moment and the hour, a man who has shown in so many ways that he is the most prepared for the high office of President, a man whose resilience, stamina and capacity is topnotch, a man who had traveled from a campaign rally in Borno State, to Lagos before joining the event in Port Harcourt, Rivers State the same day, the 28th of January, 2023. It has been a hectic campaign season for the standard bearer of the Labour Party LP, and one that has proven that Peter Obi is indeed Ready, Willing and Able, and that Peter Obi is the right leader we crave.

Peter Gregory Obi spoke to the issues of the day, he talked about how he will clean up the Niger Delta, how his government will make the wealth of the people work for them. He talked about how he will make the entire nation a huge construction site and a new hub of wealth creation and development. He talked about integrity, credibility and capacity as the minimums needed to fix Nigeria, and he challenged Nigerians to commit their time, strength, energy and resources to the cause for a New Nigeria, as he promised that he will not let Nigerians down when he is elected President on the 25th of February, 2023. He was frank, passionate and prolific.

It was a night to remember, and like they say South South like Warri 'no dey carry last.'

The call for a New Day, a New Dawn and a New Republic is the urgency of Now. Dear Compatriots, in Peter Gregory Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed we have found a Team that can take Nigeria from the nadir to promise. May God Bless Nigeria.

Politics / Kano Visit: Angry Residents Shun Buhari, Attack Vehicles by Abel7777: 4:24pm On Jan 30
The people of Kano on Monday, shunned President Muhammadu Buhari who is on official visit to the state after it was initially postponed due to security reasons.

Heavy security presences can be seen on the routes the President is expected to follow.


The streets of Kano were deserted while business premises around the Federal Government Projects to be commissioned remain closed.


Security sources reliably informed Blazonnews that such business premises were forced to remain closed by the stern looking security men while the few people who came out to catch a glimpse where driven 500 metres away from project sites.

President Buhari who enjoyed cheers and fanfare welcoming any time in the state, avoided the roads after arriving Kano and flew by Helicopter from the airport straight to Dala Inland Dry Port project site and to the Emir’s Palace.

However, angry resident at Hotoro Quarters barricaded the road leading to one of the project site in the area with stones and inter-lock blocks, attacking some vehicles in the convoy.

The situation was however, brought under control after tear gas were fired by the police to disperse the crowd who were already burning tyres.


Earlier, there were some disturbing incidences between some of the stationed security men stationed at the Emir Palace and pupils from school which led to throwing stones at the security men.


This development, is however unconnected to what majority of people described as unprecedented hardship forced on the people by Buhari’s Government especially, the recent redesigned naira notes and the initial January 31 deadline issued by the CBN.

As at the time of filing this report, president Buhari is still in Kano and expected to have a break at the state government house for lunch.

Politics / Presidential Rally: Peter Obi Shuts Down Delta State - Big Tent by Abel7777: 8:18am On Jan 11
The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi continues to get overwhelming support all over the country with the recent show of rousing welcome enjoyed at the home state of the PDP Vice presidential candidate.

The Obi - Datti Independent Presidential Campagin Council and the Delta State Labour Party Presidential Campagin Council in a press statement signed by Prof. Chris Mustapha Nwaokobia Jnr, described the candidacy of Peter Obi as one that defines true Energy, Competency and Capacity.

Nwaokobia Jnr said the show of Love and solidarity dwarfs any ever seen in recent times and went further to stated that only the OBI-DATTI campaign is the most issues based, energy packed and manifestly endearing as competency and capacity is the linchpin of trust for a New Nigeria.

The Full statement reads: Below


OBI-DATTI DEFINES ENERGY, COMPETENCY AND CAPACITY.

"After an electrifying encounter with Nigerians at the extremely popular Platform of the Ordinary President ditto the Brekete Family Show on Human Rights Radio in Abuja yesterday the 9th of January, an outing that grossed over 3 million viewers and listeners within 2 hours, Peter Obi headed to the Oil City of Warri for the first leg of the OBI-DATTI PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN RALLY".

"Youths and Nigerians of various social strata assembled in hundreds of Thousands, first at the Youth Dialogue with Peter Obi at the Wellman Facility, Opposite Goldspot, Effurun, from where PO as fondly called moved to the JFK Ground on Refinery Road, Effurun for the Rally in Warri. It was indeed two power-packed and incisive issues based outing in Warri".

"The show of Love and solidarity with our Candidate dwarfs any ever seen in recent times. Peter Gregory Obi, Prof Pat Utomi, The Labour Party Chairman Julius Abure, The Labour Party Governorship Candidate Ken Pela and several paladins of what has become a movement to Take Back Nigeria for good made Warri an Obidient Spectacle. The ebullient Vice Presidential Candidate Datti Baba-Ahmed was to join the purveyors of great hope and grail-bearers of the NEW NIGERIA at the Asaba Rally."

"Clearly the OBI-DATTI campaign is the most issues based, energy packed and manifestly endearing as competency and capacity is the linchpin of our trust for a New Nigeria. With the OBI-DATTI Ticket there is indeed great hope and redemption in the horizon."

"WARRI was locked down completely, Warri is Obidient. Asaba became the spectacle of what has become a Carnival of Hope and Restoration. After close to a Week of strategic pussy footing by the Delta State Government regarding the release of one of the several venues applied for, The Arcade on Nnebisi Road, Asaba was released less than 24hours to the Rally that became the mother of all rallies. The sublime energy, the amazing hope and the awesomeness of the Warri and the Asaba Rally will remain a watershed on our political space."

"The effort by the OBI-DATTI Campaign Train to visit prominent Traditional leaders in Delta Central and Delta South was hampered by weather as the Pilot of the Chopper advised against making the trip. Peter Obi is however full of apologies and has promised to visit the Traditional Leaders and Elders at a later date."

"One of the most enchanting spectacle of the day Delta State was locked down by Peter Obi and the Obidient Movement was the visit to the Dein of Agbor, never has a candidate seeking the High Office of President in this nation witnessed the monstrous show of love and solidarity that erupted the moment the Chopper touched down near the Dein's Palace. Unfortunately after Obi had alighted and received a bouquet of flowers from a little girl, the crowd became somewhat overexcited that there almost was a stampede. Yet again Obi's Security took charge and asked for his immediate return to the Chopper for safety reasons. Interestingly the Palace Chiefs and the highly respected Dein are in touch with the campaign for a more elaborate schedule in no time."

"In Asaba the Delta State Capital the OBI-DATTI Campaign Train paid a courtesy visit to the venerable Asagba of Asaba. It was a moment to cherish. Indeed Peter Gregory Obi, Datti Baba-Ahmed, Prof Pat Utomi, Dr Nosike Agokei, Chief Delly Ajufo, Ken Pela and some members of the OBI-DATTI Campaign Council who went with PO to the Asagba's Palace had an engaging time with the Erudite Professor Chike Edozien, the Asagba of Asaba. On the Esteemed Olu of Warri, PO having visited the highly respected Monarch twice before now remains in complete reverence of the Stool."

"The Asaba Rally and the excitement across Delta State is testament to the faith that the OBI-DATTI PRESIDENTIAL Ticket evokes, indeed the dawn of a New Day and a New Era is here."

"Compatriots, Nigeria is Obidient and the present peaceful ballot based revolution sweeping through the land like a sweltering harmattan is certain. We salute the Obidients in Delta State, we are proud of the committed Labour Party Leaders, we congratulate the OBI-DATTI Delta State Presidential Campaign Council, the BIG TENT and all the Support Groups that made the Warri and Asaba Rallies a humongous success."

Politics / Inside Story Of Gov Bello’s Query To Ohinoyi Of Ebiraland by Abel7777: 9:59am On Jan 10
It is no longer news that Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello recently quarried HRM Ado Ibrahim, the Ohinoyi of Ebiraland over alleged insubordination.

However, findings by Daily News revealed that the allegation of insubordination to the office of the Governor as claimed for the query was far from the truth.

Multiple sources familiar with the crisis claim that Governor Bello is only using the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari as a dummy to dethrone the over 95 years old Royal father.

The sources confirmed to our Correspondent that the Governor on assumption of office 7 years ago has been having no love lost relationship with the first class monarch, HRM Ado Ibrahim.

One of the source said , the monarch has been careful on issue relating to the Governor to avoid collision.

“However, when the issue of Senatorial election begin to gather momentum, Gov. Yahaya Bello who thinks he has done alot for the Central Senatorial zone , deserved support from the royal father who is the custodian of the zone to endorse his candidate.

However, HRM Ado Ibrahim, the Ohinoyi of Ebiraland seemed to have tacitly lent his support to Natasha Akpoti Uduaghan, candidate of the PDP Senatorial election,” the source said.

More findings indicate that the Monarch’s relationship with the Natasha family dates back to when he was not yet crowned.This assertion is reinforced by the trending pictures of HRM with the mother of Natasha, her senior brother , now a Medical Doctor and the little Natasha.

It was gathered that all attempts by Governor Yahaya Bello to get the support of the Ohinoyi to his Candidate of APC , Abubakar Ohere met brickwalls.

The souces said, “So , Gov. Bello has been looking for an opportunity to punish the royal father and thus the opportunity came when President Muhammadu Buhari visited the state for projects commissioning.”

Another source said aside from the politics of the election, the Kogi State Governor had reconstructed the old palace and asked Ohinoyi to relocate to the place.

But the order did not go down well with the traditional leader who cited the burial of his predecessor Late Omolori inside the palace, an albatross to the Ebira kingship tradition.

The source explained that “on assumption of the stool, the Monarch, had pointed out this anomalies to the then Governor of the state, Late Prince Abubakar Audu who approved for him the use of his personal house as his official palace, -until those circumstances are corrected -the approval which has not been vacated.”

A source noted that on the fateful day, the outer entry gate of the Ohinoyi Palace was heavily blocked by the security personnel while the outer gate , the only outlet for him to go out was bombed by the explosion, as he was holed up in the building.

One of the indigenes who spoke on condition of anonymity said contrary to the expectations of the people, that the Governor will show official sympathy with the royal father, has decided to issue him a query for not receiving the president at the old palace, got to show that Gov Yahaya Bello had sinister motive for the monarch.

Reacting, the Kogi State government shed more lights on the imbroglio between it and the Paramount ruler of Ebiraland, Dr Ado Ibrahim saying that the Monarch was merely asked why he deliberately refused to grace the visit of the president, President Muhammadu Buhari when he visited the state to commision Bello’s legacy projects.

As statement issued on Monday evening by the state Commissioner for Local Governnent and Chieftaincy Affairs , Barrister Salami Momodu Deedat Ozigi stated that since the Royal father has decided to make the matter which otherwise would have been private a public one,the state government therefore has a duty to brief the general public on the issuance of the query.

The Commissioner explained that the Royal father flagrantly refused to receive the President at the newly renovated and befitting official palace chosen instead to remain in his personal house.

The statement read “It has become highly imperative to brief the general public on the issues surrounding the issuance of letter of query to His Royal Majesty, Alh. Dr. Ado Ibrahim CON, the Ohinoyi of Ebiraland.

This is because, what ordinarily should have been an official process has been made public by the recipient of the query and as such the public deserve to be abreast with the truth and isolate it from falsehood.”

The Commissioner said that “the reconstructed palace of Ohinoyi of Ebiraland which was commissioned by the President and Commander-in-Chief of Nigerian Armed Forces has all along been the official palace/residence of successive Ohinoyi of Ebiraland”.

According to him “It is on record that when President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR visited Okene in the year 1984 as a Military Head of State, it was in the same palace that he was received by the then Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, late Alh. Sanni Omolori. The palace has been remodeled and reconstructed to a magnificent edifice that every son and daughter of Ebiraland could be proud of”.

However, he said that “the current Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, His Royal Majesty, Alh. Dr. Ado Ibrahim CON opted, on his own, chose to stay in his personal house and use it as a palace, that does not erase the fact that there is an official palace built over the years for Ohinoyi of Ebiraland.

He explained that when the idea to reconstruct the palace to make it befitting for the revered stool of Ohinoyi of Ebiraland was muted, he (Ohinoyi of Ebiraland) was sufficiently consulted and he gave his consent.

“Upon the completion of the project which has received commendation from far and wide and the date for the commissioning by the President was approved and announced, I personally paid a visit to Ohinoyi of Ebiraland and I duly informed him of the programme of event. Although he responded negatively that he would not attend, I persuaded and entreated him to kindly attend in view of the importance of the project and especially the personality of the President that would commission the project.

It is now known to all sundry that he made good his negative disposition not on any account of ill health or circumstances beyond his control, but a deliberate act of disloyalty and insubordination to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Executive Governor of the State”. He added.

According to him,”It may interest the public to know that the official visit of Mr President to Kogi State to commission projects was not limited to Okene alone, sundry projects were commissioned by the President in Lokoja, the State capital. To this effect, the President, Kogi State Council of Chiefs, His Royal Majesty, Matthew Alaji Opaluwa Oguche Akpa, Attah Igala led other Royal Majesties and all 1st Class Chiefs from both East and West Senatorial Districts and from their far domains to receive the President at the designated venue in Lokoja.

It is therefore left for the public to judge if it was fair and appropriate for His Royal Majesty, the Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, whose private residence is a few meters away from the venue of the commissioning of the palace and being the principal beneficiary of the project to stay put in his house while all the Graded Chiefs within the Central Senatorial District were present in solidarity with him to honour and receive the President.”

“The Government of His Excellency, Alh. Yahaya Bello is a responsive and responsible Government and will not allow any person or group of persons no matter how highly placed to ridicule, humiliate and cast aspersion on or disdain the genuine intention of this administration to usher unprecedented development in the State. Actions that are tailored towards disloyalty, insubordination and that which tends to affect the peace, security, good image and cohesion of the State will not be treated with levity. This administration will continue to ensure that this State is governed by the rule of law, respect for authority and humanity and the guarantee of equal rights for all citizens.

Let the general public be rest assured that Government will handle this matter with utmost objectivity devoid of any sentiment.” He added.

Politics / The Murdered Democracy In The Jewel, Awaiting Its Final Funeral by Abel7777: 5:18pm On Jan 01
By A. A. Mshelia

A friend of mine, who is a journalist, visited me during the festive season on his way to a state that shares borderlands with Gombe. While we drove into town to have some fresh air and to show him around, unlike him, he was quiet and worried. I asked him what could be the reason? He answered me with some few fretful questions: is APC the only political party presently in Gombe State? How possible is it to have only one political party having their flyers, posters, flags and billboards across the state? What about the faceless posters and billboards I see torn all over the state capital?

I smiled and I asked him to open his phone and read from Google the definition of the word democracy. Below was the exact definition he read to my hearing, "Democratic leadership, which is also commonly known as participative leadership, is about letting multiple people participate in the decision-making process. This type of leadership can be seen in a wide range of contexts, from businesses to schools to governments".

Having read that, I smiled and I told him the question he needed to ask was whether democracy still thrives in the state or it has been murdered a long time ago, awaiting its funeral? He asked me to explain, but I told him to do investigative journalism, and find out for himself why this is so.

Two days later, he shared some disturbing videos of campaigns by the ruling party. Having watched those videos, I almost broke into pieces. It suddenly dawned on me that democracy has been long lifeless before we all knew about it. We are at the moment in a despotic and totalitarian system of leadership. I shared the videos with my lawyer, some leaders of the said party at the national level and some high-ranking associates in the States and asked them the repercussions of those contents and I was knocked for six to hear the degree of the contagion in those videos.

Writing about such a noxious state of affairs is definitely a waste of time. It took me days to recuperate from this life's coercions and other things I heard the led telling their followers to do to fellow citizens in their quest for power in those obnoxious videos. Words like gobble them if they..., deal with them if they..., scratch their bodies if they... by force or money we will win the elections, and one could see these innocent youths yelling on the top of their voices in agreement to this catastrophe and calamity that will soon come upon the people if care is not taken.

The truth still remains, posters, flyers and billboards will not be on the line in February to vote, humans will and their votes will be a statement of their fate.

We hope democracy is brought back to life in Gombe State as soon as possible before we lose total hope of the future that lies ahead of us.

Let's all ponder on this question as we head to the polls in a couple of days, does democracy still thrive in our state or has it long been murdered and awaiting its funeral?

The power to resuscitate our state lies on our thumbs.

Nairaland / General / 2023: Obi Will Rescue Nigeria From Apc And Pdp – Big Tent by Abel7777: 7:39am On Jan 01
The BIG TENT an Independent Presidential Campaign Council of Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed that warehouses the many Support Groups and the Political Parties that endorse and support the Presidential Ticket of the Labour Party has called on Nigerians to reject both the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) and the All Progressive Party(APC) in the forthcoming presidential election.

Prof Chris Mustapha Nwaokobia Jnr, Director Public Affairs And Strategic Communications BIG TENT, in a New Year message wished Nigerians a better year in 2023.

Nwaokobia Jnr, also admonished electorates to take back the Country through the instrumentality of a peaceful ballot based revolution come February 25.

The Statement titled; ''BUT FOR THE OBIDIENTS 2022 WILL PASS FOR ANNUS HORRIBILIS. YOUR VOTES CAN MAKE 2023 ANNUS MIRABILIS'' described the year 2022 under the APC- led government as a horrible year and only the candidacy of Peter Obi threw a beacon light of hope on the horizon.

"Annus Horribilis is a Latin phrase meaning "horrible year". The year 2022 in so many ways will pass for a horrible one but for the message of hope that the Obidients, that Peter Gregory Obi, that the Labour Party, and the BIG TENT brought on the political amphitheatre. It was all gloom and doom until the candidacy of Peter Obi threw a beacon light of hope on the horizon.''

''The horrific state of insecurity, the unending ASUU Strike, the collapse of infrastructure, the drastic state of unemployment, the reign of benumbing corruption, the perfidy of the operators of State, the many fuel queues, the repeated collapse of the National Grid plunging the nation in Darkness, the flood that ravaged 31 of the 36 States in Nigeria, and the parlous state of the economy had left the space troubled and Nigerians melancholic BUT for the candidacy of Peter Gregory Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed that brought some fresh air on our socio-political kaleidoscope.''

"Do you wonder Dear Compatriots, why millions of Nigerians Young and Old, those at home and in the Diaspora have gladly chosen a new name and a new identity, they have proudly renamed themselves OBIDIENTS, believing in the hope before us and trusting the OBI-DATTI Presidential Ticket".

"The monumental failure of the APC and their choice of a Presidential candidate whose cognitive ability is manifestly challenged, whose CV wreaks of Fakery, whose humongous opulence speaks to unhindered corruption, who has drug trafficking charges over his head, and whose overall health is largely suspect, left the people greatly troubled and hopeless, until the Labour Party unveiled a candidate of Hope, of Decency, of Decorum and of Capacity."

"The PDP that should understand the urgency of now, chose gerontocracy over justice, over equity, over fairness, and over capacity and competency. They threw the call of the people for new tendencies in leadership overboard, and left the people troubled, until the Labour Party stepped in the fray with a Ticket of Hope ditto the Obi-Datti candidacy".

"Countrymen and women, without equivocation it was the One million-man Street Marches of the Obidients that rekindled hope and redefined our politics. They reshaped the fabrics of our politics such that the comedic theatrics of those seeking public office eating maize/corn on the streets, plaiting hair by the road side, hawking groundnuts and eating in public bukas gave way to issues based interaction".

"Obi is changing everything for good whilst yet a candidate. He is speaking to Nigerians at home and to those in the Diaspora. He is presently Africa's greatest merchant of Hope. He is a Pan Nigerian candidate and he is passionately engaging the old and the young as we seek to retire the old order in the battle of our lives. Yes, we must TAKE BACK our Country for good."

"We can make 2023 Annus Mirabilis which is the latin phrase for a remarkable and an auspicious year. We can do so by successfully birthing and berthing this peaceful ballot based peoples revolution. Folks, we can make Nigeria great again when we step out in February to elect Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed as President and Vice President".

"Do not let the merchants of hate, of deceit, of poverty, of hopelessness, of insecurity, of ethnicity and religious jingoism deceive you. Do not sell your future for the blood soaked looted monies they throw at you. Do not sacrifice your destiny and the future of your children for a mess of porridge. And do not vote for those who have left our nation in the woods and worse than it ever was."

"Let us walk together and work together until victory is won. Let us push the message for a New Nigeria until we take back our Country through the power of the Ballot in February 2023. Let us continue to preach the message of a New Nigeria until we Take Back Our Country for good though our Votes come February 2023. And let us remain resolute for through our Votes we can make 2023 Annus Mirabilis. May God Bless Nigeria"

Politics / Nwaokobia Says Doyin Okupe’s Resignation Is Good Omen For ‘clean Up Nigeria by Abel7777: 8:05am On Dec 25, 2022
Prof. Chris Mustapha Nwaokobia Jnr, Director of Public Affairs and Strategic Communications OBI-DATTI Independent Presidential Campaign Council known as Big Tent, has described Doyin Okupe resignation as the DG of the Labour Party (LP) Presidential Campaign Council as a good omen for the determination of the Peter Obi presidency to clean up the nation’s Politics of corruption.

Nwaokobia Jnr said the event hosted few days ago “The Big Tent,” which doubles as the OBI-DATTI Independent Presidential Campaign Council, and the warehouse of the support groups and Political Parties supporting the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party launched a nationwide initiative called the Clean Up Nigeria Project.

He also stated in a press statement that “At the Unity Fountain and its environ in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja the Director General of the Big Tent, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdulkareem, the Secretary General, Dr Austin Kemie and other members attended the moral and ideological task that Project Clean Up Nigeria epitomizes.

“The Flag Off of the Clean Up Nigeria Project across the nation on the 21st of December, 2022 by the Big Tent speaks to the fact that in physically cleaning up Nigeria, the OBI-DATTI Presidency shall, when voted into office in 2023 Clean Up all that has held Nigeria down”.

“As though providential, and divinely orchestrated whilst the Big Tent was perfecting plans for the launch of Project Clean Up Nigeria, news broke of the Usain-Bolt-Like conviction of Dr Doyin Okupe for Money Laundering, rather than do what politicians in other Political Parties will do, that is to ‘stay put’ until they exhaust the Right To Appeal, Dr Doyin Okupe resigned as the DG of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council preferring the high moral demands of leadership to the jurisprudence of his right to Appeal the judgement.

“In that singular act of honorary and redemptive sacrifice, the Clean Up of Nigeria has begun”.

“The Big Tent states without equivocation that only one Ticket ditto the OBI-DATTI Presidential Ticket has the bragging rights to integrity. That of the four leading political parties in the 2023 Presidential contestation only one Party has the moral right to preach about anti-corruption, about credibility and about due process, and that is the Labour Party.

“We are the redemptive team determined to reshape Nigeria and we are the band of Patriots committed to take back Nigeria for good”.

“Doyin Okupe’s resignation is a metaphor for our determination to Clean Up our Politics. It is a pointer to our resolve to Clean Nigeria of benumbing ethnocentric debauchery. To clean Nigeria from sickening religious and regional supremacy. To clean Nigeria from corruption, larceny, insecurity, hunger, poverty, disease, despondency, infrastructural decay, and to Clean Nigeria of the abandonment of our healthcare and education by those who have never stayed true to their electoral promises. Our to clean up Nigeria is unalterable”.

“Compatriots, we are the Movement of the Just, we are the Ticket of genuine hope, we are the custodians of great values, and we are the grail-bearers of a Prosperous and a Successful Nigeria.

Together with the OBI-DATTI Presidential Ticket, with the Labour Party, with the Big Tent and the Obidient family worldwide the Peaceful Ballot Based People’s Revolution sweeping through the nation shall not cease until Victory is won”. He stated.

Politics / Lekki Massacre: Vote Out Irresponsible Leaders, Nwaokobia Jnr To Nigerian Youths by Abel7777: 10:35am On Oct 20, 2022

Politics / 2023: Make Poverty Eradication A Key Campaign Issue, CCD To Nigerians by Abel7777: 6:55pm On Oct 16, 2022
Mr. David O. Anyaele, Executive Director, Centre for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), has said the current set of Nigerian leaders have failed to reduce poverty in the land as they have continue to consciously or unconsciously contributed to the growing number of persons with disabilities due to their inability to tackle the increasing number of Nigeria going into extreme poverty.

Anyaele in a press statement to mark the International day for the eradication of poverty also call on Nigerians as the 2023 general elections are around the corner to make poverty reduction a key campaign issue.

The statement reads: "October 17 annually is recognized as International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. It is a day to solidarize with people living in extreme poverty, in particular persons with disabilities, women, and children. It is also a day for sober reflection, and an opportunity to ask ourselves questions as a people on the extent we have contributed to the increase or reduction of poverty in our societies".

"The theme of this year’s commemoration is “Dignity for All in Practice”. The dignity of the human being is not only a fundamental right in itself, but constitutes the basis of all other fundamental rights. The 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights enshrined human dignity in its preamble:"

‘Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and, the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.’

"As an organization of, and for persons with disabilities, we are worried that while other countries of the world are taking steps to reduce poverty within their societies, the increasing number of Nigerians that are experiencing extreme poverty is very alarming. According to a World Bank report titled “A Better Future for All Nigerians: 2022 Nigeria Poverty Assessment", poverty reduction has stagnated since 2015, with more Nigerians falling below the poverty line over the years. The international organization projected that the number of poor Nigerians to hit 95.1 million in 2022".

"In other reports, Nigeria has been classified as the poverty capital of the world. This is because while the population of Nigeria is growing, the poverty situation is also competing with the population increase in the country".

"The most challenging aspect of this situation is that people living in poverty experience many interrelated and mutually reinforcing deprivations that prevent them from realizing their rights and perpetuate their poverty, including but not limited to dangerous, but degrading working conditions, unsafe housing, limited access to nutritious food, limits access to justice, stiffen access to political power and hinders access to healthcare services amongst others."

"This demoralizing poverty situation in Nigeria is manmade; fuelled by bad governance and corruption in the high places. Unfortunately, when people fall into poverty, their chance of acquiring disability becomes wider, as poverty has been linked as a major source of disability, even as disability pushes families into extreme poverty".

"The current set of Nigerian leaders have failed to reduce poverty in the land. They have consciously or unconsciously contributed to the growing number of persons with disabilities due to their inability to tackle the increasing number of Nigeria going into extreme poverty".

"As the 2023 general elections are around the corner, we call on Nigerians to make poverty reduction a key campaign issue. Political party candidates for the State Houses of Assembly, the Governorship, the National Assembly, and the Presidential must tell Nigerians how they intend to bend the poverty curves in Nigeria. Citizens should prepare to hold elected officials accountable for poverty reduction as the poverty situation in Nigeria is manmade, majorly because of bad governance".

In her words the current administration is a total failure and as such can not even come near comparison.

On Tinubu and Obi candidacy "They are the least of our worries as a political party, yes they can not be writing off but they are never a threat and can never be to the PDP".

On the choice of Ndudi as speaker , she said "Ndudi has proved beyond every sense of reasoning his capacity as a leader in the 9th assembly as all his bills sponsored are people orientated bills and where anyone comes from does not really matter to him so long you are a Nigerian he will always lend his voice for your justice ".

"Ndudi believes in God, and for the love he has shown his people and as such his reelection back to the national assembly is already sealed by God, he has written his name in the sands of time already".she said

Politics / Int'l Day Of Sign Language: " Being Deaf In Nigeria Attracts Exclusion" - Group by Abel7777: 8:18pm On Sep 22, 2022
Mr David O. Anyaele, Executive Director Centre for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) has said this year's International Day of Sign Language is an opportunity for citizens of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to reflect on the extent to which we accommodate citizens of our country that do not speak or hear the way we do, in particular persons with hearing impairments that use Sign Language as a means of communication.

Anyaele in a press statement personally signed congratulated the Deaf community for this year’s international Day of Sign Language.

He said it is an opportunity to ask critical questions on the extent to which Nigeria include Deaf persons in governance and socio-economic activities in the society; the extent of availability of Sign Language interpreters in Nigeria that could support the teaming Nigerians with hearing impairment.

The statement read further ," The theme of this year’s International Day of Sign Language is “Sign Language Unite Us”. This theme is apt for Deaf community in Nigeria as the primary beneficiary of Sign Language. This is because being Deaf in Nigeria attracts exclusion, isolation and stigmatization as well as poverty".

"Recognizing that over 80% of Deaf persons in the world are living in developing countries, with millions of Nigerians having one level of hearing impairment or the other; acknowledging that Sign Language is the major channel for accessing the world by the Deaf community, yet its awareness among Nigerians is very low".

"Appreciating that the major form of communication between the Deaf community and members of their society is through Sign Language, which is a tool for social interaction for Deaf persons; and concern that access to Sign Language for Deaf persons in hospitals, schools, government institutions and other public centres are very limited, if not impossible. One wonders how the persons with hearing impairment in Nigeria are coping with such a harsh society".

"Pleased that sections 24 and 25 of the Discrimination Against Persons with Disabilities (Prohibition) Act 2018 requires public hospitals and the government to ensure that persons with disabilities are given special considerations, including provision of special communication during situations of risk, emergencies (such as Covid-19) and other natural causes. Yet implementation is the real mountain to be removed for Deaf community to feel united in Nigeria".

"Sign Language is the surest way of encouraging the Deaf community's participation in the electoral process, as evidence shows that many political parties make no provisions for it".

"It becomes imperative to call on the Federal Ministry of Information in collaboration with the National Commission for Persons with Disabilities to ensure awareness creation on Sign Language in Nigeria; and for the National Commission for Persons with Disabilities take appropriate steps to promote and recognize Sign Language as a lingua franca in Nigeria. This is to reduce the gap between the Deaf community and the larger society".

"Incentives should be provided by Federal and State governments to encourage and increase more students enrollment for Sign Language studies in our higher institutions. This is to ensure availability of Sign Language Interpreters in every location in Nigeria to support the increasing number of Deaf persons; even as the need for capacity building on sign language usage in our public institutions has become imperative".

"INEC and Political parties must ensure availability of Sign Language interpreters during the forthcoming General elections even as campaign kicks off ending of this month".

"No one should be left behind by reason of hearing impairment, as such with access to Sign Language to Deaf community, will not only unite us a people, but would go along way towards promoting inclusive society free from discrimination on the grounds of disability, and hearing impairment in particular", He said.

Politics / Linking Atiku Abubakar To Tukur Mamu Arrested "Bandit Negotiator" Is Mischievous by Abel7777: 8:30pm On Sep 08, 2022
The National Alliance for Atiku and Okowa a group canvassing for the emergence of former vice president Atiku Abubakar as Nigeria's Next president has condemned the attempt to link Alhaji Tukur Mamu the arrested 'Bandit Negotiator' as an allay to Atiku Abubakar as mischievous and evil.

The group in a press statement signed by the National Coordinator, Mr Inalegwu Adaje called those behind the act as cheap blackmailers and enemies of Nigeria.

Adaje expressed his dissapointment stating categorically that the said Tukur Mamu who happens to be a Kaduna based publisher was never at any time a business allay to Atiku Abubakar .

He said just like every Nigerian will want a picture with a very important personality so it was in the very case .

Snapping pictures with someone does not in anyway connote friendship or partnership.

Adaje called on Nigerians to ignore totally the mischievous and cheap propaganda.

"Our Campaign is going to be issue based and not on some cheap blackmail, Atiku Abubakar is competent , a man who promotes the rule of law and order can never turn out to become a law breaker".

"Come 28th September when the campaign shall take off, all the noise and empty propaganda will be put to rest, Nigerians are now wiser and will not be decivied".

Politics / Peter Obi Presidency Will Booster Business And Trade In Nigeria"- Nwaokobia Jnr by Abel7777: 10:52am On Sep 08, 2022
Prof Chris Mustapha Nwaokobia Jnr, Convener CountryFirst Movement and member of the Obi/Datti Presidential Campaign Organization has said Peter Obi when elected into Office as president will ensure that the policies and procedures regarding the ease of doing business is functional and not a mere normative often hyped on paper.

Nwaokobia made the statement during a Paper presentation at a seminar organized by the Obi/Datti campaign organization leaders of markets and businesses in the federal capital territory, Abuja.

He Further stated that Peter Obi comes to the table with amazing score in competency, in capacity, in credibility, in integrity, in passion, in humaneness and humanity, in believability.

He said Peter Obi is a successful business man and a foremost trader.

The impact of a Peter Obi Presidency on Business and trade will therefore be monstrous, magnificent and huge.

The statement reads further: " Peter Obi understands the language of business and trade. He will ensure that under his watch there will be no wanton and reckless policy summersaults inimical to business and trade. He will ensure that Government Agencies involved with the regulation, monitoring and enforcement of Business and Trade policies are effective, fair, just, efficient, effectual and honest".

"He will ensure that critical infrastructure key to business growth and key to trade development are constructed, and that the available ones are maintained. Such critical infrastructure like Power, Roads and the Rail network will like Peter Obi has always said attract the prime attention of government. And this will booster business and trade".

"He will ensure that the policies and procedures regarding the ease of doing business is functional and not a mere normative often hyped on paper. He will ensure that businesses and trade are supported having pronounced that his Government will turn the nation and it's economy around by making Nigeria production based. Indeed a Productive economy will open great Business and Trade frontiers locally and internationally. Not only is the 'Production above Consumption' agenda profound, it will drive commerce and engender boisterous trade and business, and it will inspire massive improvement in the standard of living of the average person".

"A government that comes to power through the humongous goodwill of the people as evident in the ObiDatti Movement across the nation is most likely going to win the war against insecurity, and pursue far-reaching economic policy rework. It goes without saying therefore that the Agricultural sector will come back alive, that commerce and industry will thrive, and that foreign direct investment will soar, and most definitely it will lead to a boom in Business and Trade".

"With improvement in the security of the nation will come a new lease of life for business in Nigeria. And clearly with Peter Obi as the next Commander-in-Chief of Federal Republic of Nigeria God willing will come a resurgence in the Agricultural sector, and improvement in food sufficiency, in Agri-business and in the growth of agro-allied companies, industries and businesses".

"A Peter Obi Presidency will network with the World Trade Organization presently headed by a Nigerian Prof Ngozi Okonjo Iweala for the purposes of improving on the nation's balance of Trade and Investment. And shall most definitely restore investor confidence in Nigeria".

"When Peter Obi becomes President come May 2023, an administration that gives primacy to fiscal discipline and responsible financial protocol will be in place. That government will review the many levies and taxes that stifle growth in business and trade. That government will ensure that the Central Bank, The Bank of Industry, and all government owned Financial Institutions that should support Trade and Business live true to their brief. And the government will regulate Business and Trade through policies that work for positive growth and progress".

"A Peter Obi Presidency shall benefit from the monstrous international goodwill that attends his candidacy, and this will translate to massive foreign direct investment because the international community is keen on doing business with Nigeria, and the credibility and believability of the government in place will go a long way to improving local and international business and trade. Indeed we can comfortably make huge conjectures that a Peter Obi Presidency shall make Nigeria the hub of trade and investment in Africa".

Politics / Lies Against Peter Obi Won't Stick, Nwaokobia Replies Tinubu Campaign Group by Abel7777: 4:49pm On Aug 11, 2022
Convener "CountryFirst Movement", Prof. Chris Mustapha Nwaokobia Jnr , has discribed the press statement authored by Mr Bayo Onanuga Director, Media And Communication of the Tinubu Campaign Organization calling on "Mr Peter Obi to call his supporters to order that falsehood and disinformation will not win election", as smacks of mischief and manifest desperation as there is no shred of doubt that the Peter Obi Team is profoundly issues based, manifestly factual, unequivocally civil and completely decorous.

Nwaokobia said attempt to tie all the lies swimming in the social media to the Peter Obi Campaign is not only mischievous but shows the desperation of the Tinubu Campaign Organization to colour and paint Mr Peter Obi in bad light and it won't stick.

He said this is not 2014/2015 where lies and tommy-rot were allowed unattended and not debunked by the Goodluck Jonathan Campaign, this is 2022/2023 and the redemptive masses Movement will not suffer any falsehood against Mr Peter Obi and Senator Datti Baba-Ahmed to thrive. The ideological, issues based and policy driven peaceful ballot based revolution that Mr Peter Obi epitomizes shall respond timeously to any information that seek to present our Campaign and Movement in bad light.

Part of the statement reads "At no point has Mr Peter Obi, his running mate Senator Datti Baba-Ahmed or the Labour Party given instructions or imprimatur to falsehood, malice, lies and or support to any information denigrating other candidates as alleged by the Tinubu Campaign Organization. Indeed if there is any candidate that is the most civil and respectful of others, that candidate is former Governor Peter Obi. He has consistently conducted himself in Speeches, Writings and Mobilization as a man of peace, as civil and decorous, and has instructed every lever and layer of his support groups and Campaign to duel on issues rather than the persona and the personalities on the other side. Trying desperately to colour the Peter Obi Campaign and Movement in ominous shade will definitely not stick, as falsehood will definitely not eclipse the Truth".

"In the Press Statement penned by the Tinubu Campaign Organization, they sought laboriously to tie the Peter Obi Movement and Campaign to the IPOB agitation, a failed effort by one of their canvassers Mr Sam Omatseye of The Nation Newspapers. There is no shred of doubt that those who are alleging mudslinging are the experts of same. May their mischief and desperation not sully the waters of what promises a profound issues based Campaign. May they fairly judge what has become a masses oriented redemptive movement sweeping through our nation as such, and stop playing the ethnic card because it won't stick, surely it won't".

"The Peter Obi Campaign and Movement is a national redemptive vehicle, ably and comfortably seated in it are Nigerians of every creed and clan, ably and comfortably involved in this voyage are Nigerians from all region and religion, and passionately engaged in the rescue mission are Nigerians of all faith and fervour. The young and the old are Obidiently Yusful and committed to the peaceful ballot based revolution before us. We therefore implore all Presidential candidates to join us as we pioneer and lead the most civil and profoundly issues based Campaign in the history of our nation".

"We pray that we all make the issues of Security, Healthcare, Education, Economy, Power/Energy, Infrastructure, Job Creation, Human Capacity and Resource Development, National Cohesion centred on equity, love and fairness, Food Security etc the linchpin of the Campaign now and when effective campaign begins in September. And may the best candidate WIN come February, 2023". He said

Politics / 2023: Obi’s Supporters Not Rude, Frustrated By A Failed System – Prof Nwaokobia by Abel7777: 6:18pm On Aug 03, 2022
The Convener “CountryFirst Movement”, Prof Chris Mustapha Nwaokobia Jnr, has said that supporters of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, are not rude, but are victims of a failed system who just want to take their country back in 2023.

Nwaokobia Jnr also called out Sam Omatseye and Reno Omokri over their continued attacks on Obi’s supporters.

He said anyone opposing the Obi Movement is up against the citizens who want a new deal for Nigeria.

He further stated that hunger, insecurity, unemployment, poverty, banditry, poor health care, lack of electricity, and academic strikes do not know tribe, religion or region, so the redemptive train will definitely not spare those who seek to divide Nigeria along religious and regional lines.

“There is a sweltering harmattan of discontent across the land, there is anger in the space, there is hunger everywhere, there is joblessness and unemployment across the space, as hopelessness litres the very place where hope once held sway.

“The OBI-diently Yus-ful are not rude and or intemperate, they are victims of a failed system, they want to take back their country for good. They are tired of the old. They see in Peter Obi and Datti Baba Ahmed a way to end the jangling discord of poverty, disease, despondency and corruption that defines Nigeria.

“And their loyalty is to Nigeria, not necessarily to Peter Obi, Datti Baba Ahmed or the Labour Party, if you know, you know. So, when you fight, denigrate, disparage and insult Peter Obi, they consider it an insult to the future they crave. They see you as a hater of good, and a purveyor of evil.

“Get it real, the support is real, the following is organic, and there is a Ballot Based Peaceful Peoples Revolution sweeping through the nation. Only the discerning knows.

“Get it straight, you are not up against Peter Obi, you are up against Citizens who want a new deal for our dear Country, you are up against students who have been at home on account of the ASUU strike for upward of 5months, you are up against Citizens of a nation that has become largely unsafe. You are up against victims of insecurity, unemployment, hunger, want and poverty. You cannot therefore in selling your old worn-out products disparage their image of the new. Only the discerning will understand this truism.

“The Rescue Nigeria Movement that you see across the land is indiscriminate of creed or clan. It is indiscriminate of Region or Religion, so be guided. You provoke the youthful paladins of this redemptive voyage when you try to cast the movement in ethnic and religious colours, so be wise. The ills they seek to correct through the Obi and Datti 2023 Ticket is a national one, do not paint it with ethnic or sectional colours, because it won’t stick.

“Hunger. Insecurity. Unemployment. Poverty. Banditry. Poor Health Care. Lack of Electricity. Academic Strike…et al does not know your tribe, religion or region, so the redemptive train will definitely not spare those who seek to divide us along religious and regional lines. Only the discerning will understand.

“Across the nation is what I call politics unusual, study the tide and mark your strides. A new Nigeria beckons. A new Nigeria is possible,” the statement said.
