I refer to a news story deliberately planted in many newspapers. According to this story, His Excellency, Mr. Peter Obi, CON does not deserve a Zik Prize because, he has, to quote the very story “obvious hatred” for the late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe.
 
The story goes ahead to say that Governor Obi has a vice-Presidential ambition come 2015, an ambition which, according to this newspaper “is now pushing him into doing all sorts of things, including the abomination of acquiring a Zik award”.
 
To buttress Governor Obi’s alleged hatred for the Zik of Africa, this report goes further to state that “in his six years as governor of Anambra State, Obi has never visited the famous Inosi Onira residence of the late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe in Onitsha, which is now a shodow of itself”.
 
Nothing can be farther from the truth than the foregoing fallacies and assumptions. For starters, there is no such body as Igbo Integrity Vanguard, to which these allegations were attributed. A cursory search will reveal this easily.
 
It is the myopic view of one person who has a special phobia for Governor Obi that was deliberately published by hired reporters who were simply driven by their desire to line their pockets.
 
How can any sensible person claim that Governor Obi hates the late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe? Does that person know how many Anambra State functions organized by the governor which were attended by the widow of Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, Prof. (Mrs) Uche Azikiwe? For the records, Prof. Azikiwe is a member of Anambra State ’s Elders’ Council constituted by Governor Peter Obi! The late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe was honoured post-humously at the 20th Anniversary of the Creation of Anambra State held on 26th August, 2011. Could a Zik hater do these?
 
Governor Peter Obi had spoken out about the Zik’s Mausoleum: he mentioned this when he led a delegation of elders and Chiefs to Abuja; he has on innumerable occasions inspected the failed portion of road in front of Zik’s Inosi Onira Retreat even though this is part of the Federal road stretching from Bridgehead, Onitsha which the Federal Government is gradually working on following the governor’s entreaties.
 
Anyone who has been following Governor Obi’s activities since 2006 when he became Governor of Anambra State, will gladly agree that he “is an Onitsha man” at heart in all senses of the word even as his parents hailed from Agulu in Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State.
 
Not only was he born and brought up in Onitsha, the Governor is a member of an Age Grade in Onitsha where those born within the same period as he belong. He has literally transformed Onitsha – rehabilitating several roads; striving to revitalize the Nkisi Water Works and tackling the erosion menace there; getting the Federal Government to become more serious with the repair of kilometer zero to kilometer five (from Bridge Head to Upper Iweka), etc.
 
In further expression of his love for Onitsha and her people, Governor Obi is planning to relocate to the city where he is building a five Star Hotel and convention Centre even as the gigantic Sab-Miller Brewery which he attracted there is working hard to start operations in July.
 
The truth of the matter is that some people are afraid of Mr. Peter Obi that at the mention of his name, they develop instant fever, and whenever he is honoured, they go bunkers! Has this young Governor announced to anyone that he wants to be Vice-President of Nigeria? Why pre-empt or second-guess him when he is smarting from the splendid burial honours accorded Eze Igbo Gburugburu, the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, a unique burial which could not have been possible without his efforts? What role did this Igbo Integrity Group play in the burial of Ojukwu? What other Igbo causes has it fought?
 
This ‘shoot-him-down project must stop’. It was dead on arrival, to use the phraseology of these hirelings. Peter Obi has already excelled in several ways and no amount of unfounded allegations, innuendos or invectives can bring him down. This man – Peter Obi – has rewritten Nigeria ’s political history as the first man to sack an incumbent governor illegally sworn-in by the enemies of progress. He did this in 2006. He is the first governor to regain his seat after an illegal impeachment was slammed on him in 2007; He is the first governor to prove a gubernatorial tenure must last for four years; first governor to be made an Adviser to the President of the country; first serving Governor to be made a member of the country’s Economic Team. Haba! Can’t these jealous fellows see that they are fighting a lost battle?

University of Lagos Goes Wireless - The University of Lagos is now going global by the day as wireless network is now been made available for students on the campus. The wireless network started at King JaJa hall of residence which is a male hostel, followed by Mariere hall which is also a male hostel. This wireless network is only accessible by all final year registered students except diploma students.
 
The wireless network has now been shifted to other hostels round the school where Elkanemi hall happens to be one of them. Elkanemi hall is one the first hostels in the school where almost every apartment is made of wood and students now call it ile pako (wooden hall). Interested students are to register their names with the University and their matric no would be used as the username and password would be selected by the student to access the internet.
 
Students in Elkanemi hall as at 11:36pm on the 5th of March rushed out of their room with their various laptops and connected to the internet as the wireless started working then. Fortunately, instead of making use of the internet for research purposes and to aid their studies, most students use the opportunity to chat with the social network known as facebook.
 
During an interview with Shegun, a 200level psychology student, room 33 block 4 said, “Why would the University make the wireless network available to only final year students and not every students? We all need the internet for the same reasons.”
 
“I don’t even understand the wireless network of a thing, and how come the school knows when a final year uses it?” this was a statement by Jeff, a 300 level Sociologist student who was so naïve on how internet works.
 
Squatting In The Hostel - The Dean of Student Affairs, University said that there should be no room for squatting again because there are vacant spaces in the following hostels: Elkanemi, Shodende and Jaja hall.
 
Squatting has been a regular thing done by student since the creation of universities; this is due to lack of adequate spaces made available for students. The universities takes in more students compared to the availability of hostels for them to stay in.
 
These are what students say about the accommodation problem- Sheriff, a 200 level student of Engineering, University of Lagos said: “The students are not aware of the procedure to pass through in getting hostel accommodation.” Sheriff also said that hostels are not made available as at when due for students to pay for them and stay in. For the fact that some students live far away from school, most of them would not want to waste any time staying at home or waiting for hostels that might never come, so for this reason they have no other choice than to squat with a friend who already has one.
 
Sheriff said the school authorities should make proper awareness to new students coming in, and make enough hostel space available to every student those so desires.
 
Emmanuel, a 200 level student of Political Science, University of Lagos has this to say: “squatting is the illegal inheritance of a particular place.” He also said that squatting has been in the school for a very long time, and such a thing would not be stopped easily. He went further saying that drastic measures should be taken to end the tradition of squatting.
 
Emmanuel also said emphasized  saying: “different strokes for different folks;” he said some students actually collects the fees for the hostel from their parent and went as long as striking a deal with a friend who would pay half of the money and squat with him/her. Students prefer to use the money to purchase things like the Blackberry Phone to using it to improve their status quo.
 
Emmanuel gave his experience while he was in Biobaku hall. He said they were eight people to a room at first. Suddenly, the number started increasing and they became close to 22 in one room. He also said. He said the school authorities should find a lasting solution to the squatting problem.

Perhaps, some Mathematicians or Theoretical Physicists would have to formulate some equations to explain developments between the United States and Oyo State, particularly, Chicago and Ibadan.
 
Barack Obama, the United States' President and Abiola Ajimobi, Governor of Oyo State both cut their vacations short to attend to the Disasters from Hurricane Irene (August 29, 2011) and Ibadan flood, (August 26, 2011), respectively.
Barack Obama is from Chicago, capital of Mid-West America, printing capital of America and home of the skyscraper and Abiola Ajimobi is from Ibadan, capital of South-West Nigeria, Publishing Capital of Nigeria and home of the Nigerian skyscraper.
 
James Abram Garfield, a lawyer and classicist, who got his nomination for Presidency in Chicago was assassinated, while James Ajibola Ige, a lawyer and classicist, who lost his nomination as a presidential candidate in Ibadan, was also assassinated.
 
Interestingly, Bola Ige’s son, Muyiwa, was Chairman of the Oyo State branch of the Nigerian Institute of Architects, with Base in Ibadan. Muyiwa studied in Chicago, the Architectural capital of the world. He is currently the Commisioner for Lands and Physical Planning in Osun State.
 
In Chicago and Ibadan, we had Frank Lloyd Wright and Demas Nwoko, respectively, both described as evolving an entirely new Architectural identity for their respective countries.
In Chicago, we have Loyola University, and Ibadan, Loyola College. ( Mr Governor, please, give us back our school. I am an old boy of Loyola College.)
 
At Chicago we had Enrici Fermi, physicist credited with winning World War II for the U.S. President, Harry S.Truman. He was called "the Pope" because he was always right described as being as good a Theoretician as well as an Experimentalist. He tested the first Nuclear Reactor as invented by him in a Squash Court on December 2 1942.
 
Whereas in Ibadan we had Obafemi Awolowo, a Lawyer described as the  Chief strategist to the Nigerian Head of State, Yakubu Gowon. Called "the  Sage" because of his wisdom he has been refered to as a Political Theoretician as well as being a Practical Economist. A son was born to him in Ibadan on December 3 1942 to be maned Oluwole who was to become an avid Squash Raquet Player.
 
Chicago was crucial to the development of Jazz Music in the US, and Ibadan, the Highlife Music in Nigeria. Interestingly, one of the highlife greats, who started out in Ibadan was known as Roy Chicago.
 
In Chicago you had Walt Disney, Cartoonist, Comedian, who studied at the Chicago Art Institute. He had his Laugh-o-Grams and was  an Ambulance Driver whereas in Ibadan we had  Solomon Iguanre, a Cartoonist and Comedian who co-founded Laffomania; he studied at Unibadan. Obama and Ajimobi both do not have a clear cut majority in the US Senate and the Oyo State House of Assembly, respectively.
 
Obama and Ajimobi were fathered by Muslims, both served as senators, both studied in the New York. Also, Obama and Ajimobi both have masters degrees, and both linked with a Citizenship Conspiracy.
Like Obama, Ajimobi might have to observe January 20 and July 4, the two most important days in American History. The day of inauguration of the US President and the US Independence day.
For Lam Adesina, an old boy of the Loyola College, Ibadan, a former governor of Oyo State, and the Chairman of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), of which Ajimobi is a part, was born on January 20, 1939, and his wife Saratu, on July 4, 1944.
 
Lastly, Obama and Ajimobi both lived in Illinois State.

The peaceful yuletide season in Anambra State which has continued into the New Year 2012 has not gone unnoticed by citizens of the State. Many residents are quick to attribute the absence of crime within the period to Governor Peter Obi’s effective strategies on security. A community leader, Chief Anthony Agidigbo Oguejiofor and a publisher, Mr Ethel Uyanna conveyed this mood when he congratulated the Governor on giving the people ‘another peaceful Xmas season.’
 
In a Press Release on Thursday, Chief Oguejiofor and Uyanna said that the Governor’s extra ordinary attention to security of lives and property in the State had resulted in decreasing crime rate over the years. ‘However, this state of protection is better appreciated in this festive period.’
 
‘In December every year, the Governor gives two million naira to each of the 177 communities in Anambra State for security arrangements and palliative work on rural roads. By sustaining that arrangement, he has achieved results.’
 
The opinion leaders observed that this was consolidated with the Governor’s empowerment of unemployed youths. ‘Those who would have been idle and a threat to society have been meaningfully engaged in vocational works. We commend the Governor not just for this sense of security but also for restoring confidence in government.’
 
‘It is clear to us that businesses are growing in the State. More companies are opening shops and employing people. The number of hotels in Awka alone have tripled in the past two years. These would not be possible in a climate of insecurity.’
 
They therefore called for increased citizen support for the administration, noting that with the people playing their civic part, Governor Obi would be encouraged to even do more for the people.

The Birth of Jesus:

While Mary was still engaged to Joseph, she miraculously became pregnant through the Holy Spirit, as foretold to her by the angel. When Mary told Joseph she was pregnant, he had every right to feel disgraced. He knew the child was not his own, and Mary's apparent unfaithfulness carried a grave social stigma. Joseph not only had the right to divorce Mary, under Jewish law she could be put to death by stoning.

 
Although Joseph's initial reaction was to break the engagement, the appropriate thing for a righteous man to do, he treated Mary with extreme kindness. He did not want to cause her further shame, so he decided to act quietly. But God sent an angel to Joseph in a dream to verify Mary's story and reassure him that his marriage to her was God's will. The angel explained that the child within Mary was conceived by the Holy Spirit, that his name would be Jesus and that he was the Messiah, God with us.
 
When Joseph woke from his dream, he willingly obeyed God and took Mary home to be his wife, in spite of the public humiliation he would face. Perhaps this noble quality is one of the reasons God chose him to be the Messiah's earthly father.

Joseph too must have wondered in awe as he remembered the words found in Isaiah 7:14, "Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel."
 

At that time, Caesar Augustus decreed that a census be taken, and every person in the entire Roman world had to go to his own town to register. Joseph, being of the line of David, was required to go to Bethlehem to register with Mary. While in Bethlehem, Mary gave birth to Jesus. Probably due to the census, the inn was too crowded, and Mary gave birth in a crude stable. She wrapped the baby in cloths and placed him in a manger.

The Shepherd's Worship the Savior:
 
Out in the fields, an angel of the Lord appeared to the shepherds who were tending their flocks of sheep by night. The angel announced that the Savior had been born in the town of David. Suddenly a great host of heavenly beings appeared with the angels and began singing praises to God. As the angelic beings departed, the shepherds decided to travel to Bethlehem and see the Christ-child.

There they found Mary, Joseph and the baby, in the stable. After their visit, they began to spread the word about this amazing child and everything the angel had said about him. They went on their way still praising and glorifying God. But Mary kept quiet, treasuring their words and pondering them in her heart. It must have been beyond her ability to grasp, that sleeping in her arms—the tender child she had just borne—was the Savior of the world.
 
The Magi Bring Gifts:
 
After Jesus' birth, Herod was king of Judea. At this time wise men (Magi) from the east saw a star, they came in search, knowing the star signified the birth of the king of the Jews. The wise men came to the Jewish rulers in Jerusalem and asked where the Christ was to be born. The rulers explained, "In Bethlehem in Judea," referring to Micah 5:2. Herod secretly met with the Magi and asked them to report back after they had found the child. Herod told the Magi that he too wanted to go and worship the babe. But secretly Herod was plotting to kill the child.
 
So the wise men continued to follow the star in search of the new born king and found Jesus with his mother in Bethlehem. (Most likely Jesus was already two years of age by this time.) They bowed and worshipped him, offering treasures of gold, incense, and myrrh. When they left, they did not return to Herod. They had been warned in a dream of his plot to destroy the child.

According to World Health Organization (WHO), traffic fatalities kill nearly 50,000 people a year in Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation flattered by the West as "Giant of Africa".
WHO attributes the high accident rate to bad roads and places Nigeria third, behind China and India in terms of road traffic deaths.

Corruption is the bane of Nigeria's under development, infrastructural decay and insecurity. With due respect to members of the police force that are dedicated to protection of lives and property,
many of the force members can easily be described as armed robbers. These police armed robbers at checkpoints only collect money from motorists, at night some of them will rob and even kill late commuters arriving a checkpoint, a lone vehicle. There is no speed limit, no laws against alcohol consumption and drug use on Nigerian roads. Some motorists will not get behind the steering unless they are drunk because
they believe alcohol makes them drive better. Many police officers drink and use drugs on duty. Some of these officers would have consumed twelve bottles of beer by the end of the day. They are openly drinking at beer parlours in cities like Aba while on duty with their guns beside them.

People speed dangerously on potholed poorly maintained Nigerian roads and the police does nothing but collect money from them. Speeding vehicles driven by drivers under the influence of alcohol, drugs or stimulants crash head-on into each other on a seemingly daily basis. The roads get worse at night with the menace of armed robbers of which criminal police elements are amongst the perpetrators. Simply put, "Nigerian roads are dangerous" and these include city streets at night.

Corrupt Nigeria police personnel illegally collected over N53.48b ($336.5 million) at checkpoints between 2009 and this year. This was disclosed by Emeka Umeagbalasi, Chairman, Board of Trustees, Intersociety on his report on "Police Corruption As Human Rights Abuse". Click here to read Umeagbalasi's report. Umeagbalasi also filed a second report on "How Over 54,000 Nigerians Died Outside The Law, Since 1999". Click here to read Umeagbalasi's 2nd report.

While Masterweb commends members of the Nigeria Police Force who have honestly dedicated their lives to the protection of lives and property in Nigeria, we will not relent in condemning all the bad eggs in the force. We salute the police officer who saved our CEO from untimely death in Umuahia in the hands of an armed robber in Nigeria Police Force who unsuccessfully hatched out plans for the murder and robbery of our Chief Executive. It happened in December last year when our CEO who was in Nigeria on vacation was on his way with his wife and daughter to visit a relative at World Bank Estate, Umuahia. Our CEO who was trying to find his way at the estate made a legitimate left turn into a street with a police post in the midst of other residential buildings - the time was 8.25 pm. An armed police officer lying in wait for a prey at gun point ordered our CEO to stop and out of the car. Our CEO came out of the car with both hands in the air. All the police officer was shouting was: "I will kill you". "I will kill you", "I will kill you", cocking his gun four times as our CEO pled for his life, explaining that he was trying to find his way to Coping Junction. The trigger happy officer ordered another officer who came to the scene to search our CEO's car. The intervening officer shouted: "Don't you see he is a chief", "Ihugi owu chief" (Ihugi owu chief is "Don't you see he is a chief" in Igbo). He refused to search our CEO's car. The trigger happy evil officer now turned around to speak in Igbo that he was sorry for his action, that he thought our CEO was one of the teenagers driving around drinking and smoking dope. Our CEO in his mid fifties could not have been mistaken for a teenager.

The truth was that it was dark and the evil police officer in question suspecting that our CEO had money, planned to rob and murder him, thereafter killing both his wife and daughter, then finding something to cover up the crime. Our CEO's wife might have helped in getting the intervening officer save the situation by complaining to him as soon as he stepped out that what his fellow officer was doing to an innocent law-abiding unarmed citizen was wrong.

When our CEO visited the police post the following morning, the DPO in the building told him that all streets adjouring their post were thoroughfare. He said he did not understand why the officer threatened to kill our CEO. Efforts by our CEO to file a complaint against the evil officer were frustrated by the relative he was visiting at World Bank Estate who warned him that the police would raid her residence at night if he took any action against the officer. People we gathered are afraid of reporting cases involving the police for fear of reprisal by criminal elements in the force.



Masterweb hereby calls on the Inspector General (IG) of Police to use his good offices in ensuring that:

1. All criminal elements in Nigeria Police Force are identified and flushed out.

2. The evil police officer that almost killed our CEO is identified, dismissed from the police force and prosecuted in court.

3. The gunmen who robbed and murdered Odinigwe Mokelu in Port Harcourt on his way back from church on Sunday, June 19, 2011 are identified and prosecuted in court.

3. The gunmen who murdered Egesionu Ifeanyichukwu Paul ( a U.S. based pharmacist ) in Owerri on October 23 this year on his way back from his village where he went to see his people and inspect the construction of their town church windows he was funding.

5. All unsolved murders in Nigeria are properly investigated to determine those responsible for the nefarious act.

6. Nigeria Police does its best in protecting lives and property in the country, and reducing to a minimal corruption within its ranks.

( 08/07/11 ) By Intersociety Nigeria Intersociety Rejects The Kangaroo Trial (“Orderly-Room Trial”) Of Four Traffic Officers By The Nigeria Police Inspector General

(Onitsha Nigeria, August 6, 2011)-Late evening Friday, August 5, 2011, at about 11pm, the leadership of the International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law was authoritatively informed that the trio of STW(Inspector) Emmanuel Mlanga(detained since July 8, 2011), STW Adamu Dogara( detained since July 12,2011) and TWGD 111(Constable) David Oyishoma(detained July 30,2011) were taken to the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters in Abuja, at about 3pm and “arraigned “ before a two-man “Orderly-Room Trial” Committee, headed by Chief Superintendent of Police Anthony Ekong, on so-called “two-count charge” of “breach of confidence” and “incredible conduct”. The other member of the “trial” committee is Assistant Superintendent of Police Akubo. Superintendent of Police Shinkut and Assistant Superintendent of Police Frank are Police “prosecution” witnesses, while Assistant Superintendent of Police Murtala Shafi’u acts as “the Investigation Police Officer” or “IPO”. After the so-called “charges” were read, the “trial” was adjourned till Monday, August 8, 2011 when the “prosecution witnesses” would “testify”. The trio, who were taken back to their detention cells at about 7pm, had earlier been taken to the CP Provost, Mrs. Sherifat Disu who ordered their “trial” at the instance of the IGP, Hafiz A. Ringim. The fourth wanted officer, STW Samuel Uwakwe, whose annual leave expired on Friday, August 5, 2011, is already in Abuja, to appear at the Force Headquarters by Monday, August 8, 2011. He is expected to be “arraigned” on similar “count charges”. By Monday, August 8, 2011, STW Emmanuel Mlanga would have been detained for 30 days, or one month, or 720 hours, which is 672 hours more than allowed by law in the context of proper court trial. Also by the same date, STW Adamu Dogara would have been detained for 27 days, or a month minus a day, or 648 hours, 600 hours more than constitutionally allowed; and TWGD 111(Constable) David Oyishoma would have been detained for nine days, or almost quarter of a month, or 216 hours, 168 hours more than constitutionally allowed. On the other hand, by the same Monday (08-08-2011), STW Samuel Uwakwe’s rights to personal liberty and freedom of movement would have been lost for one month, or 30 days, or 720 hours. Furthermore, our reasonable suspicion that the trio are also being held in solitary confinement came to fore on Friday (08-08-2011) when our sources covertly interviewed them, and they have this to say: “our detention cells, especially the Asokoro Police cell, are under lock and key 24 hours a day. Since our detention dates, 08-07-11, 12-07-11 and 30-07-2011, our families including wives and children as well as lawyers and doctors have been denied access to us. Our captives hardly feed us, not to talk of giving us balanced diets. As a matter of fact, we manage to buy our own food through sympathetic officers. Not minding the present cold weather propelled by raining season, they keep us on the bare floors with stinking mats. When sick and reported, they do not even care, we manage to source for drugs. Our toilets and bathrooms stink and we buy Izal disinfectants to make them useable.” In view of the foregoing, therefore, we reject, in its entirety, the so-called “Orderly-Room Trial” initiated against the three gallant Traffic Wardens and planned inclusion by Monday, August 8, 2011, of STW Samuel Uwakwe in the draconian and unconstitutional proceedings. Our rejection of this stone-age approach is expressly total! Apart from lacking universalized ingredients such as right of fair-hearing, which foundationalize the Law of Natural Justice, the approach is face-saving and an escape route designed lately and belatedly too, by IGP Hafiz A. Ringim and his sub-commanders to escape the damnable culpability in detention without trial and solitary confinement of the three Citizen-Warders, seriously frowned at, by both our Constitution and various international human rights treaties entered into by the Federal Republic of Nigeria including the African Charter on Human & Peoples’ Rights. The circumstance, under which the so-called “Orderly-Room Trial” is instituted, gravely breaches the 1999 Constitution, as amended, especially her Section 36(fair-hearing and timely proper court trial). It is a settled norm in law that no matter how good a matter is, if its prosecutorial process is gravely faulty, it stands to be quashed judicially. Apart from the draconian nature of the “Orderly-Room Trial” principles, the so-called “trial” in the instant case, is also instituted in grave violation of the fair-hearing and the trial periods allowed by law. Therefore, having been predicated on false and injurious foundation, it cannot stand. Also, apart from criminal denial of adequate legal representation, no adequate time was given to the Citizen-Warders to prepare for the so-called “trial”. They were also not informed of the imminence of the “trial”, and whether they would submit themselves to such “trial”. They were not formally informed of the so called “offences” they “committed”, except at the “trial” venue. There are subsisting Appellate Court’s pronouncements, which nullified obnoxious features or principles of the “Orderly-Room Trial”, and for any “Orderly-Room Trial” to be satisfactorily evaluated, it must possess the above features and more. But for lacking the fundamental ingredients of fair-hearing and for being instituted over 670 hours after the arrest and detention of the Citizen-Warders, the so-called “Orderly-Room Trial” for the “trial” of the trio of STWs Emmanuel Mlanga(detained since 08-07-2011 in Wuse Police cell) and Adamu Dogara(detained since 12-07-2011 in Asokoro Police cell), as well as TWGD 111 David Oyishoma(detained since 30-07-2011 in Wuse Police cell), is null and void, and of no effects whatsoever . If the authorities of the Nigeria Police Force, headed by IGP Hafiz A. Ringim goes ahead and mete out any sanctions predicated on such unconstitutional proceedings, the courts shall be invited to quash them with huge financial costs against the Police authorities. We had expected the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Hafiz A. Ringim(+234(0)803325349) and the Force Public Relations’ Office, headed by DCP Shola Amore( +234(0)8037391280) to admit their grievous blunders and profusely apologize to Nigerians, unfortunately, what Nigerians got was raw display of official brigandage and chronic un-repentance. As a result, we renew our earlier call upon the President & Commander-in-Chief, who is also the chairman of the Nigeria Police Council to act swiftly before it is too late, by showing the IGP out of the Nigeria Police High Command. We also renew our similar call, earlier on, on the Nigeria Police Service Commission to sanction the trio of the DIG Administration, DIG Operations and the CP Provost for their perceived grievous violations of the provisions of the 1999 Constitution, as amended. The three detained Citizen-Warders as well as STW Samuel Uwakwe should be discharged and acquitted of all bogus charges levelled them by the authorities of the Nigeria Police Force headed by IGP Hafiz A. Ringim. Signed: Emeka Umeagbalasi Chairman, BOT +234(0)8033601078 Amaka Biachi Nwosu Head, Research & Strategy +234(0)8035532707

By Lateef Lawal

Members of the Air Transport Services Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (ATSSSAN) have been urged to unite to fight the social ills in the aviation sector in the country for the emancipation of workers from the chackles of injustice. The call was made by the re-elected President of ASSSAN, Comrade Benjamin Okewu while speaking after being sworn in for the second term of four years, who described his election as that destined by God, called on executives of all branches of ATSSSAN to work for the over all enhancement of workers welfare.

According to him, it will be difficult for any association to grow or fight for the well being of its members where acrimony and rancor was the order of the day. He enjoined everyone to desist from anti-association activities in the interest of members of the association. He declared that union’s agitation for a comprehensive road map and plan for the development of the aviation sector will not stop until the road map was made to reflect the various tangible expectations of stakeholders.
Okewu urged the government to learn from the unpopular decision of liquidation of the Nigeria Airways to be harnessed into the aviation road map. The ATSSSAN President called on the government to conclude the process for the final payment of all outstanding indebtedness to Nigeria Airways workers immediately to put an end to incessant deaths. According to Okewu, “ATSSSAN will not stop calling for the review and cancellation of various concession agreements that are skewed in favour of the concessionaires to the detriment of the organization, workers and Nigerian people”

While commending the steps taken by the aviation minister over the Bilateral Air Service Agreement with the British government, Okewu expressed delight over the commencement of work aimed at re-modeling some airports across the country saying it was as a result of the workers out cries and agitations which will never be in vain.
