Published

on

Anambra State Commissioner for Diaspora Affairs, Indigenous Artworks, Culture and Tourism, Dr Christian Madubuko, has resigned over alleged threat to his life.

In his letter of resignation, Madubuko alsp alleged endemic corruption in the system and advised the governor, Willie Obiano, to take charge of his government.

Madubuko was at several times in three years appointed as Commissioner for Industry, Trade and Commerce; Commissioner for Road, Rail and Water Transportation.

The resignation letter read in part, “In the cause of fighting corrupt individuals holding the state revenue on the throat, all manner of frivolous petitions against me were written to the governor accusing me of several misdeeds particularly destabilising our party, the All Progressives Grand Alliance and advising the governor to remove me before l do more harm to the party.

“In several occasions, agents of darkness tried bribing me with millions of the naira. I arrested these criminals and this was applauded by the governor at the EXCO meetings. Within these three years, l have been redeployed to three key ministries in the state as Commissioner.

“With all these happenings, it became clear that when you fight corruption, corruption fights back in several forms.

“Those toes l stepped on are now in the prowl for my life. I am no longer safe as l speak. On three different occasions, l received the baptism of fire by unknown gunmen/assassins. I was equally attacked severally at the Onitsha Main Market by the agents of the revenue criminals.

“All these attempts were to stop me from exposing the people involved in siphoning the state revenues into their private pockets to the detriments of the Anambra citizens.

“I advise His Excellency, the Governor, to rise up to the challenge of leadership and take charge of his Government. This is because, at the end of it all, the governor alone takes all the glory for things done right and blames for things done wrong.”

Published

on

Senator Samuel Anyanwu has emerged the consensus candidate of the South East zone of the Peoples Democratic party (PDP) for the position of the National Secretary of the opposition party in the forthcoming National convention.

Anyanwu who hails from Imo State, was a member of the 8th Senate where he represented Imo East Senatorial district under the platform of the Peoples Democratic party.

A statement issued by the National Vice Chairman of the party for South East zone, Chief Ali Odefa, said Anyanwu emerged the consensus candidate after thorough deliberation by the leaders and members of the party in the zone.

The statement issued on Friday and made available to journalists in Abakaliki said “the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Southeast zone has once again displayed its maturity and readiness to reclaim all its stolen mandates in the zone through the peaceful and united manner in which the zone arrived at a consensus in nominating an illustrious son of the zone, Sen. Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu (Sam Daddy) as the zone’s sole candidate for the position of National Secretary of our great party ahead of our national convention.

“The PDP in the Southeast by this honourable and uniting act has once again put its detractors who thought that the fortunes of the party will be destabilized by the ceding of the plum position to the zone.

“The PDP in the Southeast is now more than ever prepared and ready for the task ahead.

“We are sincerely grateful to our leaders in the zone who despite their natural human differences have united and formed a common front in our avowed reclamation of the Southeast for our great party.

“Despite the desperation of political jobbers and power mongers who have adopted all manner of undemocratic moves to lure away our members, the Southeast remains a stronghold of the PDP and we assure our teeming members and supporters that our great party remains strong, firm, on ground and poised for victory as the 2023 general elections  approaches.

Thank you”

‘You’ve failed your constituents’, Ganduje hits back at Shekarau, others

Published

Abdullahi Umar Ganduje

Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State has reacted to the petition written by a group of lawmakers led by Senator Ibrahim Shekarau.

The group under the auspices of Joint Stakeholders Forum had written a petition to the APC headquarters on Wednesday, alleging that they had been sidelined despite contributing to the success of the party.

They also demanded the cancellation of the ward and local government congresses of the party.

The other signatories to the petition were Senator Barau Jibrin (Kano North); as well as House of Representative members: Sha’aban Sharada (Kano Municipal), Tijjani Jobe (Dawakin Tofa/Tofa/Rimingado), Haruna Dederi (Karaye/Rogo) and Nasiru Auduwa (Gabasawa/Gezawa); and Shehu Dalhatu, Chairman, Buhari Support Group.

But reacting to their allegations during a stakeholders’ meeting at Government House in in Kano on Thursday, the governor said it was unfortunate that leading members of the party in the state are doing disservice to the party.

He said the aggrieved group do not believe in the party structure since they rejected the party leadership from ward to state level.

“You have failed to deliver good projects to your constituents and you are facing problems then you accused me of your travails?”

“The money you are collecting in Abuja has not come down to your constituents and you’re blaming me? You’re taking me as scapegoat to your problems.

“The congress will hold and the doors are opened to all from every camp to come and contest. It is either by election or by consensus.

“Even where there are no opposing candidates, the contestant will still be subjected to voting” he said.

Earlier, the majority leader of the House of Representatives, Alhassan Doguwa, criticised the group, saying “as far as the true stakeholders of the party is concerned, there is no crisis within the party.”
