Ola Ajayi – Ibadan

One of the claimants to the controversial title of Ezendigbo of Ibadan land and Oyo state, Dr Alex Anozie, and his subjects have their kinsmen in calling on Federal Government to ensure that the 2023 presidency goes to a candidate of Igbo extraction.

Making the call during his address delivered on the occasion of Iwaji Eze 2020 at his palace in Ibadan, weekend, Dr Anozie said that a President of Igbo extraction would go a long way in restoring the confidence of the Igbos in  Nigeria.

He also asked just the federal government to bring to end insecurity, killings all over the country as it is making well-meaning Nigerians be tempted to join the various agitations all over the country.

The Ezendigbo also lauded the federal government for putting more efforts in the construction of the second Niger bridge and the completion and reopening of Enugu International Airport noting that he was the first Nigerian to request the federal government to construct the second Niger bridge in 2002 during his Igbo day address at the Liberty stadium.

Dr Anozie also thanked the Olubadan His Imperial Majesty (HIM) Oba Saliu Akanmu Adetunji, Aje Ogungunniso 1 for assigning him with immediate effect the responsibility of resolving matters pertaining to Ndigbo which emanates from his palace besides taking the ethnic group as his children just like other areas where Ndigbo reside.

Earlier, he had commended Oyo state Governor Engr Seyi Makinde for keeping his promise to ensure that peace reigns in the state, carry the ethnic group along as for the first time in the history of the state, an Igbo man was appointed into his cabinet apart from respect for the rule of law particularly obeying court judgment.

The Ezendigbo also encouraged all Igbo town unions and associations towards making sure they are united by remaining under the umbrella body of both Ohaneze/ ICDA which remains the only authentic Igbo body bringing them together for the past thirty years while assuring to all the town unions or associations which were deceived or quit the body out of fear or intimidation that ICDA is the only body recognised by a court of competent jurisdiction in Oyo state.

PDP scammed Nigerians with fuel subsidy ― APC

 

By Omeiza Ajayi – Abuja

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Peoples Democratic Party PDP of scamming Nigerians through its fuel subsidy regime when it held sway as the nation’s ruling party.

APC in a statement by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena also tackled the PDP spokesman, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan for failing to do a complete comparative analysis of the deregulation scheme in Nigeria and Saudi Arabia.

President Muhammadu Buhari in his Independence Day message to Nigerians had stated that it makes no sense for fuel to be cheaper in Nigeria than in Saudi Arabia, buy PDP had in its reaction to the speech described it “as a huge slap on the sensibilities of Nigerians”.

Specifically, it said “President Buhari’s attempt to justify the increase of fuel price in Nigeria by comparing it to the N168 per litre cost in Saudi Arabia is a morbid joke”, noting that “the minimum wage in Saudi Arabia is N305,113 (3000 Saudi Riyals), ten times higher than our paltry N30,000 which is largely unimplemented in Nigeria.

“Is Mr President not aware that, on the average, a person working in Saudi Arabia earns around 4,230 SAR (N430, 267) to 16,700 SAR (N1,698,693) per month?”, PDP had queried.

However, APC in its statement in Sunday said the PDP has no moral authority to query President Buhari’s administration.

“It is baffling that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has to be told it does not have any moral authority to caution or query the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
