Rt. Hon. Adesegun Abdel—Majid Adekoya (Attacker) the immediate past Deputy Minority Whip, Federal House of Representatives, 9th Assembly, has secured the approval of the Ogun State government to construct and renovate several blocks of classrooms in different towns under the Ijebu North/Ijebu East/Ogun Waterside Federal Constituency.

The approval conveying the government’s decision was contained in a letter through the Ogun State Universal Basic Education Board which was dated 9th of February 2024.

Adekoya who represented the good people of Ijebu North/Ijebu East/Ogun Waterside in the 9th Assembly under the Peoples Democratic Party PDP has demonstrated deep passion for education and the acquisition of knowledge and he has been unwavering and unrelenting as a champion of several projects in his Federal Constituency since he got elected into the green chambers.

He seems to have keyed into a mantra that “Education is a process of facilitating learning and imparting knowledge. It enhances the transfer of knowledge, skills, norms, morals, values, and beliefs usually from an adult to young ones, from an experienced individual to a less experienced individual or a learner. It could also be from a child to an adult but this is not common… Legacy is handed down or passed down from one period of time to another from an ancestor to predecessor. It could be some amount of money, property. it can also be seen as an inheritance.”

His love for education and empowerment has become legendary in his entire constituency especially through his investment in philanthropy from primary, secondary up to tertiary institutions in Ogun state and beyond.

A week ago, Rt. Hon. Adesegun Abdel—Majid Adekoya commissioned a school hall at Abobi Comprehensive High School, Ago—Iwoye area of Ogun state. The hall which is furnished with electricity, fan and other amenities to make acquiring quality education easy for the students as well as their teachers.

Hon. Adekoya had written the Ogun State Universal Basic Education Board on the 30th of January, 2024 requesting official approval to commence the renovation of a set of schools spread across the three local government council areas in his Constituency. The statutory approval was therefore communicated on the 9th of February 2024 which grants the lawmaker the permissions to construct and renovate about eleven schools in different towns in the constituency.

In a related development, in appreciation of his very deep concerns for the development of his community, some Imobi Sons and Daughters on Friday 9th of February, 2024 presented an Award of excellence to the former Deputy minority whip, describing him as the Best Politician of the year 2024. The award was presented at his residence in Ago-iwoye, ijebu North, Ogun State.

Below is the copy of the approval letter…

Hunger Is Making You Go Blind’’ – Analyst Blasts APGA’s Chinedu Obigwe For Tackling Primate Ayodele

Hunger Is Making You Go Blind’’ – Analyst Blasts APGA’s Chinedu Obigwe For Tackling Primate Ayodele

‘’Hunger Is Making You Go Blind’’ – Analyst Blasts APGA’s Chinedu Obigwe For Tackling Primate Ayodele

 

 

A political analyst, John Obuchi has blasted the National Coordinator, All Progressives Grand Alliance Media Warriors Forum, Mr Chinedu Obigwe for his recent media attacks against popular Nigerian prophet, Primate Elijah Ayodele over his prophecies regarding Anambra 2025 governorship election.

 

 

Hunger Is Making You Go Blind’’ – Analyst Blasts APGA’s Chinedu Obigwe For Tackling Primate Ayodele

Primate Ayodele had revealed that a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah can unseat Governor Charles Soludo and prevent him from getting a second term in office if care isn’t taken. The prophet warned Soludo to be wary of mistakes that can make his government become unpopular.

In two different publications, Chinedu Obigwe in his reaction to Primate Ayodele’s prophecies rubbished the prophet and described him as a ‘Cash and Carry’ man of God. He went as far as mentioning that Primate Ayodele is acting as Ubah’s campaign manager because of his prophecies about the senator’s governorship ambition.

In a reaction, John Obuchi has described Obigwe as a hungry man who has become blind because of his current predicament of hardship. Obuchi described him as a political dog who is selling himself cheaply because of peanuts and irrelevant political appointments.

‘’It is not always difficult to identify a political dog when you see one but it is very unfortunate when you see intelligent persons sell themselves out unnecessarily because of peanuts or at most, docile political appointments.’’

‘’Chinedu Obigwe, one who claims to be a national coordinator but isn’t known beyond Anambra, has shown with his recent attacks against Primate Ayodele that the current economic hardship has eaten deep into his cognitive reasoning and the fight for his daily bread has affected his sight; he doesn’t see beyond stomach infrastructure. He has proven to be a perfect definition of what we call ‘ebe ọ bụla belle ihu’.’’

Obuchi recalled how Andy Uba’s media team tackled Primate Ayodele for saying their principal will not become governor of Anambra state four years ago, explaining that Soludo’s team is also following the same route that led to the failure of Andy Uba.

‘’I know for sure that his attacks are not alien to Primate Ayodele’s ministry; the man of God received more than these during the last Anambra governorship election from Andy Uba’s media team. They insulted Primate Ayodele for saying their principal’s ambition will be a waste instead of listening to instructions and at the end of the day, Primate Ayodele laughed last because they failed woefully.’’

‘’Just like Andy Uba’s media team, Chinedu Obigwe is setting Charles Soludo up for failure at the 2025 governorship election. Primate Ayodele has only shared a prophetic warning that still has remedy, 2025 is still almost one year from now and the needful can still be done but sponsoring materials in the media against Primate Ayodele is just adding more petrol to the fire, Obigwe ought to know that ‘A na-agwa ntị ma ntị anụghị, e gburu isi ntị esoro ya’; When Charles Soludo loses, he will automatically become jobless.’’

He warned Charles Soludo to do the needful just as Primate Ayodele has warned in order to avoid failure while asking the governor to be careful of Obigwe’s antics to lead him to failure.

‘’Imagine saying Primate Ayodele is a cash and carry prophet, it’s very funny because if only Obigwe knows the capacity this prophet has, he would resign his current position and beg to become Primate Ayodele’s cleaner so he can feed well. People just make some unfounded claims in order to please their paymasters and it is so unfortunate coming from someone who claims to be a media person.’’

‘’I don’t want to say much other than to advise Charles Soludo to do the needful if he still wants to retain his position, Primate Ayodele doesn’t talk if he hasn’t seen anything and going by the records, every of his prophecies come to pass. Obigwe will lead Soludo to the pit if care isn’t taken. There is still time to retrace your steps, I rest my case.’’

SUSPEND, PROSECUTE, AND KICK OUT MINISTERS, AIDES WITH PENDING CORRUPTION CHARGES AND VALIDATED ALLEGATIONS NANS URGES PRESIDENT TINUBU,

NANS Condemns the Brutal Attack on KWASU Students by Men of the EFCC, NDLEA and NPF; Calls for Justice

 

 

 

The national body of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) expresses profound dismay and unequivocally condemns the reprehensible and brutal attack unleashed upon the students of Kwara State University, (KWASU) Malete, by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), and the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) during midnights operations on Tuesday 20th February, 2024 and Thursday 21st February 2024 respectively.

In direct contravention of the clear directive from the Chairman of EFCC prohibiting midnight operations, The men of EFCC Kwara State command went ahead to carry out an illegal operation in the KWASU students community on the night of Tuesday, 20th February 2024 arrested students and questioned the sources of their wealth without due invitation or following the laid down principle for such operation. It is commendable that the students of the institution valiantly opposed the unauthorized intrusion into their academic environment at the odd hours of the night.

Regrettably, the security operatives (EFCC , NDLEA and NPF) responded and revisited with excessive force, resorting to the deployment of teargas and live ammunition, reportedly resulting in leaving the students with severe injuries.

The NANS National body, while appreciating the doggedness of the school’s students’ union, the audacity of the Kwara JCC categorically condemns this flagrant violation of the fundamental rights of students and demands immediate and resolute action from the authorities concerned. We hereby articulate our comprehensive demands as follow;

1. *Independent Investigation:* We call for an impartial and transparent investigation into the incident, ensuring the full cooperation of all involved agencies and guaranteeing the thorough examination of the circumstances surrounding the brutal attack.

2. *Identification and sanctions of Officers:* We demand the prompt disclosure of the identities of the officers involved in the ill-fated operation to facilitate accountability, necessary disciplinary actions and serve as a deterrent against future transgressions.

3. *Compensation and Medical Support:* Immediate and adequate compensation must be provided to the families of the deceased students, and comprehensive medical support should be extended to those who sustained injuries during the reprehensible attack.

4. *Adherence to Ban on Midnight Operations:* We emphasize the need for strict compliance with the directive from the EFCC Chairman, who prohibited midnight operations. Any deviation from this directive should be met with severe disciplinary measures, else the students will result to jungle justice of treating them as criminals henceforth.

NANS National underscores the urgency of addressing these demands and we are issuing a 48 hour ultimatum for our demands to be addressed. We also call on the relevant authorities to act swiftly and decisively. We insist on justice for the victims and accountability for the perpetrators. NANS National will not shiver in its commitment to safeguarding the rights and well-being of Nigerian students.

We implore all concerned stakeholders, including human rights organizations, civil society, and the media, to stand in solidarity with us as we seek justice and redress for the victims of this heinous act.

*Signed,*

Comrade Ekundina Segun Elvis
NANS National Senate President
