[ Masterweb Reports: Dr. SKC Ogbonnia reports ] - The clarion call by the Arewa Youths Consultative Forum (AYCF) demanding President Muhammadu Buhari not to seek re-election did not come as a surprise. In fact, some of the most difficult questions that greeted my recent expression of interest to vie for the presidency under the All Progressive Alliance (APC) centered on the plight of the Nigerian youths today. These youths are aggrieved, and understandably so, that our brand of democracy is skewed against them. Before delving into the matter, let me quickly offer two innocent acknowledgements.
The first goes to the leaders of the APC, particularly Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, and President Buhari. Before gaining power, despite various breathtaking overtures from successive regimes in the Fourth Republic, these leaders were steadfast in personifying the cause of the opposition. In short, the defeat of a sitting president in 2015 represents one of the greatest milestones in Nigeria’s democratic journey. It proved, for a change, that there can be consequences for bad behaviours in our beloved country.
The next applause must go to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and former President Goodluck Jonathan who, by default or design, provided the enabling environment for the emergence of a strong opposition party by the time for the 2015 election. Even more, Dr. Jonathan graciously accepted defeat. That gesture alone was historic and helped to elevate the Nigerian democracy to a hopeful trajectory.
This memo, therefore, is an appeal to our great party, APC, to take a cue from the preceding legacies and move the Nigerian democracy up another notch. There are many ways to accomplish such objective, but none will be more endearing than to truly create a level playing ground that can enable the youths to lend their abundant talents to the growth of our democracy.
The Anambra governorship election has become the foreplay to Nigeria’s general elections. Overall, President Buhari deserves commendation for ensuring that there was no interference from the federal might. However, notwithstanding that the election was generally adjudged peaceful, it was far from free or fair. It did not give the youths any fair chance for meaningful participation. For instance, only billionaires or their political godsons were free to fly the flags of the major parties in the said election.
This predicament presents the APC a grand opportunity to step in and effect the desired change.
The ruling party can begin by leading by example. As a progressive party, the APC must no longer be a party to arbitrary nomination fees. Its nomination fees--for all offices--ought to be reduced to the barest minimum, drastically lower than the current limits prescribed in the Electoral Act of 2017, as amended, so that the ordinary man and woman can also aspire to serve. The advantages of this approach are two-fold. It profoundly broadens the party, as it enables mass participation in the process. It will also help redeem the image of the party from the negative public opinion it caused itself when the then candidate Buhari had to grudgingly borrow N27 million from a bank to purchase his nomination form towards the 2015 presidential election.
The most inevitable is to compel the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to obey the laws of the land. The Electoral Act is explicit on campaign finance, outlining specific spending limits for every elective office, from councilor to the presidency and relative consequences for violations. Yet, even though there is always ample evidence that the candidates spend without limitation, including buying of votes, the INEC never seems care to enforce the extant campaign finance laws. The Anambra election was no different.
This pattern does not bode well for our nascent democracy. Huge campaign money, of course, does nothing but accelerate the engine of corruption in the country. It also goes to grossly disfranchise the masses, especially the youths. Needless to mention that the pattern accounts for the unfortunate history of youth marginalization in successive national governments.
Some critics may attempt to dismiss this mail as self-serving since I am a candidate for president. But they should not. A simple scan of the internet will show that I have been a tireless crusader against tainted money in Nigerian politics for over a decade. Moreover, as hinted in my declaration statement, my team is blessed with the resources to fund our campaign to victory—from the ward level to the presidency.
It can also be convenient to view the memo as mundane since all the political parties, as well as the general masses, including the youths, are guilty of tainted money in our politics. For there will be no giver without a taker. But this is where the posterity beckons on the APC to leave a legacy. The PDP and Goodluck Jonathan will forever be remembered for creating the ideal condition for the opposition to thrive in Nigeria’s democracy. Let APC and Muhammadu Buhari thenceforth go further to foster mass participation and fair competition by curbing illegal money in our politics.
The ultimate beneficiary is Nigeria. Fair competition in our body politics will unleash the unique potential of the Nigerian masses, particularly the youths. Our future is a mirror of the present condition of these innocent youths, and that is troubling. But that future can, and should, be better. Let us, therefore, go forth to lay the right foundation today.

[ Masterweb Reports: Isiaka Wakili reports ] - President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday inaugurated the Audit Committee on Recovery and Management of Stolen Assets within and outside the country.
Members of the committee are, Olufemi Jinadu, Chinyere Bibiogha and Mohammad Nami.
Buhari said his administration embarked on tracing and recovery of all stolen assets within and outside Nigeria using legal and diplomatic resources at its disposal.
He said the gains of his administration’s initiatives over the past two and a half years had been obvious as evident in the level of investigation, prosecution and forfeitures involving both public and private sector officials in the country.
Buhari said the message had therefore been passed loud and clear that "Never again as a nation are we going to allow the wanton diversion and embezzlement of public funds to private pockets."
He said Nigerians would further recall that pursuant to requisite directives, recovered assets were progressively being returned to designated accounts by the anti-graft agencies and other agencies of government involved with the process.
"In the course of implementing this exercise and given the number of agencies who are concurrently pursuing specialized initiatives and making recoveries for government, it has become obvious that fundamental gaps still exist in ensuring that the recovered assets are accounted for, and managed in an accurate, transparent and logical manner," he said.
The President explained that it was in realization of this that he directed, earlier in the year, that all agencies should send in detailed reports of all their recovered assets as at March 2017.
He said the decision to inaugurate the audit committee was therefore the next step in ensuring that all returns filed by the various agencies were accurate and consistent with actual recoveries made. He said the committee was therefore expected to judiciously undertake an audit of all recovery accounts established by government agencies from the date of opening such accounts up to 10th April, 2017.
The president said he looked forward to receiving the committee’s report and recommendations in due course, wishing them the best of luck in their assignment.

[ Masterweb Reports: Emma Elekwa reports ] - The Anambra State governor, Chief Willie Obiano has raised alarm over the sudden withdrawal of his security details, saying such action has exposed his life to danger.
Obiano who stated this on Tuesday in Awka during an election stakeholders meeting organised by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), described the act as unacceptable and a dangerous signal on what was to happen ahead of the governorship election.
He demanded for the immediate return of the security details in order not to constitute further threats capable of overheating the polity.
"I want my security details returned immediately because I am going to start a fight from there. I am the governor of Anambra state and all the paraphernalia of my office must be there.
"This is unacceptable and a sign of what will happen. Those behind this would be dissapointed because we are very ready for the election," he insisted.
According to the governor, he had wanted to speak with the Inspector General of police who was scheduled to be at the occasion, but said he had to voice it out in the event since he was not aware when he would come.
The governor had earlier complained of having not been accorded recognition by the moderator when he worked in, despite several insistence.
But reacting, the National Chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, said the event was a stakeholders' meeting, and as such no candidate would be accorded any special treatment regardless of his position.
He said the commission insists on equal treatment of all candidates in the election and should not only have equal standing, but must be respected.
The Inspector General of police, Idris Mohammed was yet to arrive at the Dora Akunyili Women Development Centre, venue for the event while filling this report.

[ Masterweb Reports: Emma Elekwa reports ] - There was tension on Monday at the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Awka Anambra state, following a suspected bomb scare in the area.
Daily trust gathered that two substances suspected to be bomb explosives were sighted in the commission's premises, which triggered fears among the staff and visitors alike.
It was also learnt that the alleged explosives were planted near the gate of the commission in the early hours of the day before bomb disposal experts came to the rescue.

[ Masterweb Reports: Akinola Ajibola reports ] - One of the governorship aspirants in Anambra State, Mr Osita Chidoka, has explained why he drove Nnamdi Kanu home after the self-acclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was released on bail.
This comes amid speculations that Chidoka, a former minister of aviation, drove Kanu home for the sake of popularity and to achieve his governorship ambition.
Chidoka, who spoke on Sunday during a governorship debate organised by Channels Television, however, said, "If it was a popularity contest, I’m sure that candidate would have gone for it."
"The issue is the fundamental philosophy of the right of individuals in a democracy to freely express themselves within the laws of the country.
"Once we have that right as enshrined in our Constitution, I believe we must respect it and if anybody violates the terms of our Constitution or our laws, then the law should take its course," he added.
Candidates from five major political parties had a tough debate on Sunday, six days to the Anambra governorship election slated for November 18.
The aspirants are Chidoka of the United Progressive Party (UPP); and incumbent governor Willie Obiano of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
Others include Tony Nwoye of the All Progressives Congress (APC); Oseloka Obaze of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); and Godwin Ezeemo of the Progressives People’s Alliance (PPA).
Explaining further why he drove the IPOB leader home, the former minister said any persons or groups found to be expressing grievances against the law should be punished.
He said that there was nothing wrong in driving Kanu home after he had been granted bail by the court, stressing that the law had taken its course on him.
Chidoka added that his intention was not to gain any form of popularity as claimed by to bridge the gap between the people of the South East and other parts of the country.
He said: "The law took its course on him (Kanu). He got bailed from a court, I now participated in ensuring that the bridge of communication between the angry young people in the South East and the rest of the country is a burden I believe I bear as a young minister.
"As a young former Chief Executive of the Federal Road Safety Corps, I believe I serve as a beautiful bridge; I serve as that bridge that connects the dreams of Nigeria with the people of Ndi-Igbo." (Source: Channels TV)

[ Masterweb Reports: Victor Edozie reports ] - For hundreds of residents of Graceland, Oyigbo West, AP and Mbano Camp of Oyigbo in Oyigbo Local Government Area of Rivers State, this year’s rainy season has not been a pleasant time for them.
Oyigbo, which is a few kilometres from Port Harcourt, the state capital, is a fast growing city with 28 oil wells and flow stations. The Afam Power Station is located in the area.
Over 200 residents of Graceland Oyigbo West and Mbano Camp in Oyigbo were recently displaced by flood. Hundreds of them relocated to other places while some use canoes to get to their houses.
Also affected is St. Peter’s Catholic Parish in Oyigbo West. The Parish Priest, Rev Fr. Victor Onyeukwu, called on the state government to come to their aid by creating a canal to channel water out of the area.
"This year’s rains have caused a lot of damage to us. The entire compound is flooded. We are appealing to the state government to come to our aid. Now that the dry season is setting in we want the government to assist us and other residents of the area," he said.
When our reporter visited the affected area the entire community was deserted. A few residents that cannot afford new houses engaged the services of canoe paddlers who convey them to and from their houses at N100 per trip.
A resident of Graceland, John Uche, said they were in a "total mess" as a result of the devastation caused by the flood.
He said most of the residents had packed out of the area.
"This year’s rainy season has done more harm than good to residents of this community. The rain was so heavy that all the houses in this area are flooded. If you look round you will find out that all the houses here are empty. Residents have reallocated and moved to safer places. We that have no place to go have remained here. We have no option than to use canoes to move in and out of our homes.
"That is the only alternative we have to get to our homes because the flood water is very deep. There may be dangerous reptiles here and nobody dares risk his life," he said."
He called on the state government to come to their rescue. Another resident, Ajie Chinedu, blamed their plight on people who built houses on water channels.
‘’In this area people take laws into their hands and this is responsible for the problem we have found ourselves. People build houses without recourse to urban planning regulations. Almost all the houses here are sitting on water channels and that is the reason why everywhere is flooded each time it rains. We are in real trouble," he said.
While calling on residents to observe city development laws while building houses, Uche appealed to the state government to reconstruct the road leading to the area and provide proper drainage channels.
Another resident whose house was submerged by flood, Philip George, said: "I am yet to recover from the damage caused by this flood. I lost all my properties to the flood. I completed my house last year and moved in with my family. I did not know that this area was this bad until the rain started.
"I did not take it serious until water covered my house. We only struggled to survive but almost all my properties were destroyed. We were able to pick a few things out of the house. I am presently squatting with a relation. My family is also putting up somewhere. We are waiting for the water to dry up so that we can go back."
Another resident, Imelda Johnson, said: "The canoe is helping us a lot. This is the only way we can get to our houses. The young boys that are paddling the canoe are of great help to us. Without them I wonder how we would have accessed our houses." One of the canoe paddlers, Gift Onyeka, said: "When I saw how the entire area was flooded I contacted a few friends and we decided to rent canoes which we use to ferry people across the flooded areas. We have about four canoes, human traffic was high at the peak of the rainy season. During that period we made between N3000 and N4000 daily. But as the rain is subsiding, the entire area is drying up and it’s affecting our business. I am not happy that people are living in such a pitiable environment but their suffering has become a blessing to us," he said.
Another canoe paddler known as Osas said they made money from ferrying residents from the flooded areas.
"The suffering of other people has suddenly put smiles on our faces. But we have been of help to them also because without the canoes how would they enter their houses. It was indeed a good season for us as we took home between N3000 and N4000 daily. But as the rainy comes to an end and the flooded areas are drying up our business is equally going down," he said.
The state government early this year awarded a contract for the reconstruction of the major road leading to the flooded community.
The project has reached about 80 percent completion but there is no drainage to channel water out of the residential areas.
Governor Wike has directed the state’s Ministry of Environment to work on how to tackle the flood. The Deputy Governor, Dr Ipalibo Banigo and the Commissioner for Environment, Dr Roseline Konya, recently went on an assessment tour of the affected communities and promised that the government would work out modalities to avert future occurrence. Some of the areas visited included Eneka and Choba.
