2015 Elections will Not Disintegrate Nigeria Says Tambuwal

  • Jega explains N45bn electoral budget


The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, Wednesday allayed fears in the certain quarters that the 2015 general election would break up the country.

Tambuwal disclosed this in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital, while speaking at a public lecture, titled: ‘Challenges of Fraud-Free Elections Under a Democratic Dispensation’ and book launch on fraud -free election, which was organised by a non-governmental organisation-Mustapha Akanbi Foundation.

The foundation was established by the former chairman of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences (ICPC), Justice Mustapha Akanbi(rtd).

According to the speaker, “The 2015 elections are by the corner, and already there is so much talk about how the conduct of that election can make or mar not only our democracy but our unity. Let me say here that the unity of this country does not depend on the outcome of any election.”

Tambuwal said: “We have past that level. Since 1999, it seems that every time we have an election, politicians and ethnic jingoists try to overheat the polity unnecessarily and cause a lot of tension in the land. We must stop seeing everything as the end of our union. Add a comment

The 70-year-old cousin of President Goodluck Jonathan, Chief Inengite Nitabai was Thursday released by his abductors after a ransom was paid even as the police in the state said that no money was paid.

The chief was released at Ogboma, a fishing camp in neighbouring Nembe local government area of Bayelsa state.

Relieving his ordeals to newsmen Thursday at the state police command, Nitabai cried: “I was kicked and beaten with a gun in the kidnappers den.”

Bugaje Says Nigeria’s Crude Oil Belongs To The North

Bugaje Says Nigeria’s Crude Oil Belongs To The North

One of the lead speakers at the Northern Leaders’ Conference, Usman Bugaje, has raised a controversial issue on the ownership of Nigeria’s crude oil domiciled majorly in the Niger Delta region.

According to him, it is wrong for any state to claim that it is oil producing because 72% of the total land mass in the country belonged to the North and that by the United Nation’s law; it is only the North that actually has the right to claim ownership.

Dr. Bugaje, in his presentation, insisted that “there are no oil producing states.” He argued that “the only oil producing state is the Nigerian state itself.” Add a comment

Join PDP - Bafarawa Tells Buhari

North-West leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), yesterday at a regional rally in Kaduna pleaded with the leader of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammdu Buhari, to join the PDP.

Former governor of Sokoto, Dalhatu Bafarawa, who made the appeal to Buhari said he has discovered that things are working well in the PDP and encouraged the former CPC presidential candidate to join him in the party.
“Many people have been asking why I joined the PDP. I joined PDP because it is the wish of the people of Sokoto state and the North-West. I want to tell my brother Buhari that I have joined the PDP and there is a vacancy for him in the PDP. Since I joined the party in the last one month, I have seen that all is well. I am not looking for any appointment but I want government to serve my people.” Add a comment
