INEC reinstates Gambo Lawan as Borno PDP Guber candidate 1200x805 1

Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) state congress committee in Oyo State, Alhaji Gambo Lawan, has advised members who were not satisfied with last month’s congress to forward their complaints to the national secretariat of the party.

Lawan made this disclosure while speaking with journalists on Saturday.

DAILY POST recalls that the party had on Saturday, October 30 held its state congress.

However, some members of the party who were not happy with the outcome of the congress, insisted that they have been shortchanged.

Some of the aggrieved members, among whom are Chief Niyi Akintola, had alleged that the national secretariat of the party in Abuja was not aware of Lawan’s activities in Ibadan.

Lawan, responding, noted that Akintola is just a paperweight politician, who is seeking undue recognition.

He alleged that Akintola is only visible when an election is coming.

He maintained that if Akintola and other aggrieved members of the party have any complaint, they should go to party headquarters in Abuja rather than spew tissues of lies in Ibadan.

“Based on the directive passed to me by an aide of Mai Buni, I left Gombe to Bauchi and Bauchi to Abuja to take a flight to Lagos, slept in Lagos on Thursday and on Friday morning, I left Lagos straight to Akala’s house, where they all agreed to meet for the reconciliation and harmonization meeting.

“But to my surprise, I didn’t meet Oke at the agreed venue, which is Akala’s house and I have to call him, he said he was coming until I got information that he was at the party secretariat holding another meeting.

“According to party constitution the governor is the leader of the party, where there is no governor, the former governor is the leader and that’s why instruction was given from Abuja, that Akala is the leader of the party in Oyo and that he should be the one to convey the meeting and they agreed.

“When I got to Akala’s house, I met up to 90% of stakeholders that we have been holding meetings with, and according to a directive from Abuja, I attended the meeting as an observer and my report would be submitted to the CECPC in Abuja.

“To my surprise, Niyi Akintola who was not at Abuja meeting nor Ibadan meeting was lying to people that our presence in Ibadan was not knowing to party leadership.

“This is my 43 years experience in politics, Akintola who is a liar has no moral right to question my integrity, let him go to party headquarters in Abuja to complain, who knows him, he is a paperweight and only feasible when the election is coming. I want to bold to say that, we have come, we have seen, we have conquered and we have left,” he said.

Muslims under the umbrella of Muslim Ummah of South-West Nigeria (MUSWEN) have advised Nigerians to supply credible information to security agencies in order to stem the tide of kidnapping, armed robbery and other criminal activities in the country.

A member of the Board of Trustees (BOT) of MUSWEN, Alhaji Kunle Sanni, issued the advice while speaking with journalists during the 6th General Assembly of the organisation.

The event themed “Insecurity in Nigeria: Effects on Human Psyche” held at the University of Ibadan on Sunday had MUSWEN President, Alhaji Rasaki Oladejo; MUSWEN Executive Secretary, Professor Muslih Yahya; and prominent Islamic scholars and associations across the region in attendance.

Sanni, while speaking on the security situation across the country, noted that Nigerians should not wait for security agents before they secure themselves.

He explained that it is not possible for security agents to be everywhere, hence Nigerians should volunteer information that could help them arrest the criminals.

Sanni, who added that criminals live among the people, said that the best way for people to protect themselves is to report suspicious movements to the security agencies.

He said, “Chief of Army Staff, Inspector General of Police and all the service chiefs cannot be everywhere and these criminals live among us, so we are concerned about the security situation in the country, we should give intelligence report to the security agencies.

“I am not suggesting that Nigerian should carry guns to defend themselves, if we are saying that we should carry guns to defend ourselves, we are escalating the tentacles of violence.

“So, I will not subscribe to the call that everyone should carry guns.

“Every Nigerian should see himself as part of those who want to see the end of the ugly insurrection.

“Therefore, they should be involved to volunteer necessary information to the security agencies to assist in combating insecurity”.

A former Commissioner of Police, Dr. Olayinka Balogun, in his lecture entitled “Prevalence of Insecurity in Nigeria and its effect on human conduct” attributed weak government, politics of hatred, corruption, unemployment and breakdown of traditional institutions as major factors causing insecurity in the country.

He then recommended that government and stakeholders should ensure the provision of jobs for the unemployed, promote equity, justice and protect the rights of minorities in order to address growing incidents of kidnappings, armed robberies and other criminal activities in the country.

“Insecurity can be brought to a minimal level if the following essential political, economic and social policies and programs are introduced and sustained in a society.

“Development and consolidation of democratic culture, strong and capable public institutions, a strong and just economic space including guaranteed job and food security,” he said.
