BOT Chairman : Bishop Ezeokafor Congratulates Obiano

The Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese His Lordship Most Rev Dr Paulinus Chukwuemeka Ezeokafor has congratulated the executive Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano on his recent appointment as the chairman of the Board of Trustees (BOT) and as the leader of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
He charged the Governor not to allow the rigours characterized with such appointment to distract him from carrying out the onerous task of creating a new and vibrant Anambra State.

Now that Obiano has Become APGA BOT Chairman

On Monday, November 3, 2014, the Board of Trustees of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) unanimously appointed the Governor of Anambra State, His Excellency, Chief Willie Obiano as its new Leader and Chairman(BOT). The appointment brought to an end, an era that never was – the era of former Governor Peter Obi, the party’s recent past BOT Chairman, which was mired in intra-party squabbles and heady power-play. In the end, Obi’s appointment was never ratified.

APGA is in Good Hands under Obiano

The rash of commentaries trailing the defection of former Governor Peter Obi of Anambra State to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is not unexpected given the central role the former governor played in the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) hierarchy and the volt-face denials of the vows he made to justify his new political trajectory. Whereas many especially in the Igbo heartland felt scandalized by the former governor’s action and expressed it in different ways, others tried to lend support rather tamely by turning round to blame those who felt outraged by the apparent betrayal of trust.

2015 elections: Obasanjo can endorse whoever he wants, says Atiku

Atiku and Obasanjo
Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar on Monday said former President Olusegun Obasanjo had the right to endorse whoever he wanted for the 2015 presidential elections.
Atiku said this in Abuja at a news conference organised by his media organisation to intimate the public of a policy review summit coming up at the Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta on Oct. 27.
Debunking claims that the three-day conference was a ploy to get Nigeria’s ex-president to endorse him for the next general elections, Atiku said the choice of Abeokuta for the conference was because his media organisation felt each time they went to Lagos, the people’s daily routine was usurped.

Senate backs Tambuwal, vows to protect legislature

The Senate abruptly adjourned sitting on Wednesday without taking decision on any issue, including the bills before it.

Before the adjournment which was protested by the All Progressives Congress Senators, its President, David Mark, lamented the withdrawal of the security aides of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and vowed to protect the Legislature.

He said, “We are not to interfere in the internal affairs of each house. However, as the Chairman of the National Assembly, I cannot fold my arms or pretend that all is well about the current crisis.

“I am therefore going to do all I can to resolve the current impasse. Furthermore, the matter is already in a court of law, we cannot therefore discuss the issues here. I want to assure all of you that I will do the needful to protect and defend the legislature at all costs.”

Signs that the Senate might not have a smooth sitting however started when Mark   read the prayers and an announcement by the Senate leader, Senator Victor Ndoma – Egba, inviting members of the PDP caucus   for a crucial meeting at the Hearing Room One in the chamber.

The PDP caucus in the red chamber were protesting their alleged maltreatment by President Goodluck Jonathan and the leadership of the party, over the last ward congresses, which ensured that only candidates of governors emerged as delegates.

Mark thereafter invited Ndoma – Egba to lead the senate to the next item on the order paper for deliberation barely 20 minutes into the plenary.

However, rather than mentioning any item on the order paper, the Senate leader said, “Having exhausted all items on the order paper for today(Wednesday), I hereby move for an adjournment to Tuesday, 11th November for further legislative business.”

The adjournment motion was then seconded by the Deputy Senate Minority Leader, Senator Ahmed Sanni Yerima.

While the PDP senators echoed yes to the Senate President’s question on whether the sitting should be adjourned as moved and seconded accordingly, their counterparts in the APC shouted nay but Mark ruled in favour of the former.

But before he finally announced the adjournment, Mark explained that the decision was in solidarity with their colleagues in the House of Representatives over the withdrawal of Tambuwal’s security aides by both the Police and the Department of State Service.

The PDP senators, led by Mark, immediately went into a private meeting   to further perfect their strategies on how to confront Jonathan and the PDP over their displeasure with the conduct of their party’s ward congresses.

Our correspondent learnt that the real reason for the abrupt adjournment of the Senate was to enable the PDP senators to have enough time to fine tune strategies for contesting the     congresses, which ensured that only candidates of governors emerged as delegates.

A senator, who confided in our correspondent, said they resolved to continue their protest until Jonathan and the PDP leadership ensured justice and fairness in the emergence of candidates that would win the PDP tickets in   next year’s general elections.

The source also said   that their meeting with Jonathan over the congresses would hold   around 10 pm on Wednesday.

He said, “We had fruitful deliberations and I think we are getting close to resolving the crisis. We have been told that the President would lead a meeting of the National Working Committee of the PDP to discuss with us.”

Another lawmaker said that they had already told the President and the PDP leadership that two serving senators from each state must get automatic tickets for the Senatorial poll.

He said,   “We have already put our cards on the table. We have resolved that at least two serving senators in each of the 36 states must be given automatic tickets, while each governor should   nominate someone   for the third ticket.”

Ndoma – Egba, who briefed journalists after the meeting   justified the protest by his colleagues, stressing that “defending democracy is bigger than the Senate .’’

He said, “I am sure you are aware that PDP caucus met yesterday and today (Tuesday and Wednesday) on fundamental issues affecting democracy in Nigeria arising from the ward congress of our party last Saturday.

“The issues need to be addressed   very urgently by relevant PDP stakeholders in the interest of our democracy . You will all surely be briefed when the issues are addressed.’’

However, the APC senators   condemned the adjournment of plenary till next week, stressing that the PDP Caucus had decided to cripple activities in the Senate over personal interests.

Spokesperson for the APC caucus, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, said in a statement that the action of the PDP senators were of no benefit to the overall well-being of the nation.
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal
The lawmaker accused their PDP counterparts of not allowing the Senate to sit for two days in a row. He recalled that the Senate adjourned as soon as it convened on Tuesday and   adjourned again on Wednesday without any deliberation.

Ojudu attributed what he termed as the PDP senators’ insensitivity to issues of national interests to the   battle that they were having with their   governors over PDP’s structures in their various states.
