LG Poll: APC Screening Committee Faults Moves By Faceless Cyber Attacker

The screening committee of the chairmanship aspirants under the platform of All Progressives Congress(APC) in Obafemi-Owode local government area of Ogun State has faulted move by those suspected as behind social media write-up to rubbish its report.
The reports that the committee secretary, Clement Adeniyi in a reaction to the suspected sponsored social media message, said such move was to tarnish the image of the committee, which it said it holds no water.

‘Our attention has been drawn to a libelous story written and posted on different social media platforms by one Comr Samson Adekunle from Asipa Village of Obafemi Owode Local Government, where the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Obafemi Owode Local Government Chairmanship Screening Committee headed by our leader, Chief Kola Sorinola was indicted in order to drag the screening Committee Chairman, the entire members of the committee and the committee’s report through the mud’.

The statement added that, the arrowhead of the mischief was a faceless person, stressing that the story was mischievous and an attempt to mislead the general public against the screening committee and the good work of the committee.

‘We wish to state, it’s obvious and evident that the writer of this misleading story did not research the power and responsibilities of the committee on the screened Chairmanship aspirants before polluting the public with falsehood, erroneous and fallacious claims against the committee and its Chairman’.

‘Hence, we will like to educate him and others who might have believed the falsehood on the responsibilities and power of the Screening Committee. We are local government chairmanship screening committee and not DSS whose functions include: prevention, detection and investigation of criminalities’.

‘Our function is to screen all the aspirants which were 12 in number. We’re according to the party higher authority, to request for the aspirants’ necessary credentials such as: tax clearance certificate , academic certificates, permanent voter’s card, party membership card etc’.

‘As a committee, the party did not authorize us to investigate any aspirant as per the documents presented to us or otherwise. The party will further investigate all aspirants and every document presented’, the statement read.

It is important to categorically state that as the Secretary of the Screening Committee, I did not write any academic institution to investigate the genuinity of academic certificate of any aspirant reason, I was not given such power and authority to do so’,Adeniyi explained.

‘I therefore wish to clear that my name was used by some unscrupulous persons to draft a letter in respect of this, and further used my appellation to make it looks real. Meanwhile, on the 17th May, 2021, the screening committee chairman, Chief Kola Sorinola received a petition and in the presence of the local government party leaders, during a leaders’ meeting held at the Assembly Quarters of the Hon. Member representing the local government state constituency, Hon. Damilola Kayode Soneye’

‘Same day, 17th May, 2021 put a call through the Deputy Registrar of the academic institution to confirm the authenticity of a letter written to the committee in response to the sent letter by these set of people where names and appellation of the screening committee’s secretary were used’.

‘To the surprise of the leaders, the Deputy Registrar when asked by the Committee Chairman Chief Kola Sorinola, if she wrote, signed and sent a letter confirming an aspirant did not graduate from the institution said “No she did not write, sign and send such letter”. This is the length at which the committee can react. Thus, further investigations are left for the party leaders and elders.

‘Having explained all these, the screening committee on behalf of the entire good people of Obafemi Owode Local Government and its environ, advised those who derive joy in politics of bitterness and dirty politics to change their ways and believe in the saying that, ” Que Sera, Sera, Whatever Will Be, Will Be!’

‘We therefore urge members of the public to ignore the mislead and delude story piled up by the faceless Com. Samson Adekunle. As every necessary actions are ongoing to present to the party faithfuls and good people of the Local government a befitting Local Government Chairmanship Candidate.

Taraba State Governor, Agbu Kefas’ Silent Climate and Agricultural Revolution: A Beacon of Hope

Published

on

 

 

A transformative movement is underway in Taraba State, driven by Governor Agbu Kefas’ visionary 10 million economic tree planting program. This initiative is revolutionizing the mindset of rural farmers, who previously relied on low-yielding crops like rice, yam, and cassava. By introducing high-yielding Malaysian palm seedlings and other assorted economic trees, the program aims to boost agriculture, combat climate change, and alleviate rural poverty.

 

The sheer scale of the program is massive and impressive, with vast nurseries centres as far as the eye can see sprouting across the state, including USSA, TAKUM, DONGA, IBI, WUKARI, KURMI, BALI, GASHAKA, and SARDAUNA. International recognition has followed as  the governor was among others invited recently to New York for a conference on global warming and importance of tree planting.  A recent international newspaper editorial highlighted Taraba State’s outstanding approach in Nigeria and especially the entire northern region.

 

If sustained, this program could reduce poverty by half and significantly improve the state’s GDP growth rate. It’s a welcome departure from the usual cash handouts, which often exacerbate dependency. Instead, Governor Agbu Kefas is empowering farmers with a sustainable livelihood, fostering economic growth, and writing a new chapter in Taraba State’s development story.

 

We commend Governor Agbu Kefas for his innovative leadership and commitment to transforming Taraba State. May this silent revolution inspire other states to follow suit, creating a ripple effect of progress across Nigeria.

 

Economic trees play a vital role in addressing  pressing global issues:

 

*Climate Change*:

– Absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen, mitigating the effects of climate change.

– Help maintain soil quality, preventing erosion and landslides.

– Provide shade, reducing the urban heat island effect.

Poverty Reduction:

– Generate income opportunities for rural communities through sustainable forest management.

– Provide raw materials for local industries, promoting economic growth.

– Enhance food security by offering fruits, nuts, and other edible products.

 

In Taraba State, the economic tree planting program is a strategic move to:

 

Combat Climate Change: By planting millions of trees, the state is reducing its carbon footprint and contributing to global efforts against climate change.

Reduce Poverty: By empowering rural farmers with high-yielding crops, the program is increasing income opportunities, improving livelihoods, and reducing poverty.

 

The economic tree planting program is a win-win strategy for Taraba State, addressing both climate change and poverty reduction while promoting sustainable development.

 

The economic tree planting program in Taraba State has not only environmental and economic benefits but also social benefits, such as:

 

– Job creation: Employing 700 workers across various nursery centers, contributing to reduced unemployment and improved livelihoods.

– Skill development: Workers are acquiring skills in nursery management, planting, and maintenance.

– Community engagement: Local communities are involved in the project, fostering a sense of ownership and responsibility.

– Economic stimulus: The project is injecting income into the local economy, boosting economic activity and growth.

 

This project is a testament to the potential of sustainable development initiatives to drive positive change and improve the lives of communities. Kudos to the Taraba State government and all stakeholders involved!

Niger: One Week After Primate Ayodele’s Warnings, Bandits Attack Nigerian Soldiers (VIDEO)

Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy Fulfilled As Kenyans Protest Against President Ruto Over Finance Bill

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sahara Weekly Reports That There is currently a protest going on against the President of Kenya, Samuel Ruto following some of his policies which includes the finance bill that was recently approved by the Kenya Kwanza government.

 

 

 

 

Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy Fulfilled As Kenyans Protest Against President Ruto Over Finance Bill

 

 

 

 

 

 

Citizens of the country took to the street earlier this morning to protest against it as they made it known that the bill would add to their taxes and make the economy of the country more difficult for ordinary citizens to thrive in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The protest at some point led to violence as police arrested some protesters, shot tear gas at them and as we speak, about 200 protesters are in police custody following their protest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No doubt, this development has fulfilled one of the prophecies Nigerian prophet, Primate Elijah Ayodele gave regarding President Ruto’s government in January. The prophet who foretold Ruto’s victory in the 2022 presidential election warned earlier this year that the president would come up with some economic policies that would be alarming.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the prophecy which was published by notable newspapers including Kenyans.co.ke, Primate Ayodele mentioned that the efforts of Ruto to make Kenya better will not be appreciated and that oppositions would come strongly against him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These were his words:

 

‘’Kenya: The country should pray not to see an assassination or removal of a governor. The country’s economic policy will be alarming. Ruto will come up with different policies to see that Kenya gets better but he won’t be appreciated. Oppositions will come out strongly against him. All the efforts of Ruto to make Kenya better will be faced with challenges. The president needs to look after his health. The foreign exchange will not be too good, and Kenya must change its economic policies. I see the country getting it wrong in diplomatic policies. The president must pray not to lose any minister.’’
