‘Nigerian youths should emulate Bulgari’

By John Akubo

The director general Kogi State Bureau of Information and Grassroots Sensitization Mr. Abdulkarim Abdulmalik has admonished the Nigerian youths to appreciate the institution of integrity in the person of President Muhammad Buhari.
Speaking in Lokoja in reaction to the emergence of President Buhari for the second term he said they should aspire to be great and should see a role model in the President .
“The youth of this country have so much to learn from this man who is so blessed that he is still sustaining his life for us so that we can learn.”
On the complaints laid by the opposition PDP about some irregularities in the election he said no human endeavor is perfect. “Nobody is infallable except the almighty God. Our democracy is just evolving, when you want to compare it to the advanced economies like the US that has been practising democracy for over 200 years it does not really add up as we just started yesterday.
“You cannot rule out irregularities but we have to develop a large heart to accept this. The former vice President was once in that saddle, as Vice President and he contested for Governorship and won and there were complaints everywhere.
“Even the election that brought him and his principal to office there were complaints. So complains would always come up but it is not to say we are justifying it but measures have to be taketon minimize such pitfalls.”
He admonished Atiku Abubakar to accept defeat and join hands with the president to move the country forward.
According to him, there are many lessons to be drawn from the election by the ordinary Nigerian; saying the masses trouped out enmass ignoring inducement of money and voted for the candidates of their choice.
“It is a plausible development, it is a great thing happening in our democracy and I believe that the people of this country must strive to sustain this.
“A time will come when a classroom teacher will vie for position and when people see that he had endeared himself to them they will vote for him.
“Emphasis on money politics has gone down drastically because President Buhari made it abundantly clear that he has no money to give anybody even during the campaigns he visited all the 36 States including the FCT and you can imagine the mammoth crowd that greeted him everywhere he went.”
He said the second lesson is that the outcome of the election is a pointer to unity of the people of this country.
Abdumalik added that the issue of religion has been deeply de-emphasized, because the two major contestants are Muslim’s from the Northern part, and they are Fulanis.
He said the Nigerian people decided to come out with excitement to vote for the candidates of their choice.
“Lesson number 3 is that the average Nigerian public officer should be weary of his actions and inactions while in office, he should know that the day of reckoning will surely come.
“He should appreciate and understand that whatever he does he is being watched. So the President has shown us that what integrity can buy and acquire, the Dollars, Pound Sterlings and Euros can never buy.
“So public officers should see a lesson here that when they aspire to occupy any position in the country, they should think about the nation first, think about the nation second and think about the nation third and to the last point.
He said it should be Service, adding that they may not be popular, or they may not have money but people are watching them and God is also watching. “The life of President Muhammad Buhari and his reelection is a great lesson to anybody.
He said the President has also warned that in the course of celebrating the victory they should be modest.
“So every public officer should bring modesty into whatever he does. It’s victory for all Nigerians , it is a pointer to forward movement for all Nigerians.”

APC lacks authentic membership register says Buni

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) party has said it lacked authentic membership registration of its members nationwide.

Speaking at a meeting of APC Senate Caucus wednesday the party’s caretaker committee chairman Maimala Buni said since the membership registration exercise of 2013, the party has no authentic register in all the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Buni said some members who left the party in 2018 and joined the opposition party still have their names on the party’s register. 

He added that many others who joined the party from 2014 to date do not have their names in the register.

Buni said the revalidation of the party’s membership register has become imperative to expunge names of those who had left the party and include those who have joined the party from 2014 to date in compliance with Article 9:4 of the Party Constitution. 

He also disclosed that the caretaker committee has set up a high powered committee made up of eminent party leaders, legal practitioners and experts to study the reviewed Constitution and to make recommendations to the effect of the necessary amendments.

Tthe Chairman, APC caretaker committee, Governor Maimala Buni said the party’s reconciliation effort to settle aggrieved persons and factions has paid off, noting that the conflicts in most of the state chapters of the party have been settled.

Speaking at a meeting of APC Senate Caucus, Buni said the party now proudly paraded political heavy weights in various states who have either returned back to the party or freshly joined the party. 

He said the defection of Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi and several legislators of the state assembly was great milestones in the party’s restoration process.

“Many others have indicated interests to either return or join the party. In fact, I want to assure you all that APC will soon shock Nigeria’s political space with massive and unprecedented defections ever witnessed in the political history of our great country, and by the grace of God, APC will undoubtedly remain Nigeria’s leading political party,” he added.
