Former Military Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar has stated that the potential flashpoint for next year’s general elections would be Rivers State and the North East.

The National Peace Committee has identified Rivers State and some states in the North-East as flash point areas of the 2019 general elections.

“I’m worried about the security situation in the North-East and it is necessary that we try to contain violence there in order for INEC to go there and conduct election. You should know that INEC will not send people to endanger their lives in order to conduct election and, in actual fact, no agent or no political party will endanger the lives of its people in any conflict area. So, we hope we will be able to contain that violence before the general elections.”

According to him, INEC has assured the committee of its readiness for the general elections, but called for issue-based campaign by political parties.

After the meeting with the political parties, we are going to draw a Memorandum of Understanding of peace and tranquillity and this we hope will be signed by all the presidential candidates and the chairmen of the registered parties.

“Like all Nigerians, we pray and hope we will get assurances that INEC will do the right thing and the political parties will help them also in exercising their right, in a free and fair election. Each Nigerian has a role to play and I hope they will play their parts,” he said.

The former head of state decried conduct of the parties’ primaries, especially the imposition of candidates.

Peter Odili believed in him as a young man with potential in politics, and adopted him as a political son, guiding and nurturing him in politics, and consequently facilitating his election into the Rivers State House of Assembly in 1999.

This relationship between him and Odili translated into a harmonious relationship between the Executive and Legislative arms of government in Rivers State, until when Rotimi Amaechi launched a campaign against the State Government, and verbally attacked the image of the State Governor, in an effort to succeed Peter Odili as governor in 2007.

BOMBSHELL!!! Wike Forged Age Declaration Certificate, Does Not Qualify To Be Governor, Lawyer Alleges

A legal practitioner, Achinike William-Wobodo, has filed a suit before the Federal High Court in Abuja, asking the court to disqualify the incumbent Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, from taking part in the 2019 general election or any other election in Nigeria, on the grounds that he submitted a forged certificate of age declaration to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

In the suit filed on Wednesday, October 17, 2018, Wobodo asked the court to declare that the certificate of statutory declaration of age presented by Wike to the INEC on December 25, 2014, for the purpose of the 2015 general election into the office of the Governor of Rivers State, contained falsehoods and was forged.

Wobodo also asked the court to declare that pursuant to section 182, subsection 1 (j) of the 1999 constitution as amended, Wike is not qualified or eligible to contest or participate in the 2019 general election or any other election in Nigeria, having presented a forged certificate to INEC.

The Rivers State government is yet to officially respond to the development.

A number of top government functionaries have been hit with certificate scandals in recent times, most prominent of which is the former Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, who resigned her position after admitting that her National Youth Service exemption certificate was fake.

Also, the Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on prosecution, Okoi Obono-Obla, is alleged to be parading an invalid senior secondary school certificate.

WOW! This is why Court oders EFCC to pay N600m to two Rivers govt officials

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is a Nigerian law enforcement agency that investigates financial crimes such as advance fee fraud (419 fraud) and money laundering. The EFCC was established in 2003, partially in response to pressure from the Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering, which named Nigeria as one of 23 countries non-cooperative in the international community’s efforts to fight money laundering. The agency has its head office in Abuja

 

 

Reports has it  that a  High Court in Port Harcourt on Thursday ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to pay the sum of N600m ‘exemplary damages’ to two Rivers State Government officials for investigating and declaring them wanted.

 

 

The two officials are the State Accountant General, Frederick Dagogo-Abere; and former Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Local Government, Lekia Bukpo. They were among those accused by the anti-graft agency of withdrawing N117bn from state government coffers.

 

 

The judge, Justice George Omereji, in his ruling, declared that the anti-graft agency violated the fundamental rights of the officials by investigating the Rivers State Government’s account. He stated that the action was in disobedience of a subsisting court order restraining the Commission from investigating the state government account.

 

 

Justice Omereji said he was embarrassed by the actions of the EFCC, adding that the Commission failed to appeal the judgment against it, but resorted to self-help by inviting the state officials.

 

 

He said that the Commission should first vacate the subsisting order made by Justice Ibrahim Buba of the Federal High Court before taking any action on accounts of the state government.

 

 

The judge also described the letter of invitation of the EFCC to the state government officials malicious, maintaining that only the Rivers State House of Assembly has the right to investigate the financial activities of the state government.

 

 

The court declared that the sum of N300m each be paid by the EFCC to Federick Abere and Lekia Biokpo as exemplary damages. Counsel for the Accountant General of the State, Dike Udenna, described the judgment as a response to some questions asked by Nigerians on the alleged abuse of court processes by the EFCC.

 

 

Recall that former Rivers State Governor, Peter Odili, had, during his administration, obtained a perpetual injunction from a Federal High Court restraining the EFCC, ICPC and other anti-graft agencies from investigating Rivers State Government account.

 

 

It would be recalled that Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike suspended the State Commissioner for Finance, Dr Fred Kpakol and the State Accountant General, Sir Abere Dagogo.
A statement by Simeon Nwakaudu, Special Assistant to the Rivers State Governor on Electronic Media said the suspension takes immediate effect sometime in 2016.

 

 

Kpakol shocked the Civil servants in the state when he directed them to present their Bank Verification Number, BVN, before their salaries could be paid from the month of February.

 

 

Dr Fred Kpakol,the State Commissioner for Finance who may not have gotten the approval of the Governor, struggled to clarify the new policy of the government. He said it was neither meant to purge the state workforce nor was it vindictive but aimed at correcting anomalies in the State Civil Service. He said the BVN will enable the state fish out ghost workers.

 

 

“We will pay salaries to only authenticated staff in the state workforce. You must give accurate information about you details as any information found not to be correct would be sent to EFCC for prosecution.” He also emphasized that civil servants will only be paid February salary on presentation of Bank Verification Number BVN.

 

 

Observers are of the opinion that the Governor may have been miffed by the bad timing of the decision of both the Commissioner of Finance and the Accountant-General to rattle the Civil Servants, since some rerun elections are due in the state. Analysts said the governor interpreted the directive as an embarrassing political miscalculation.

 

 

Wike had accused some top notchers of Government,especially those in his cabinet for disloyalty before January 27 victory at the Supreme Court.It was not clear if Dr. Fred Kpakol and the Accountant General fell into that category.

“By the 2018 seasonal rainfall prediction released earlier in the year, September 28, is the earliest cessation date of rainfall in Sokoto and Katsina while December is the earliest cessation date for the southern coastal cities. “The implication of this is that, the northern part of the country should be expecting more rains in the next three weeks,” he said.

Speaking earlier, Mustapha Maihaja, the director-general, NEMA said that the emergency meeting was called following the update on the flood situation received from NHISA and described the development as alarming and urgent. He said that the meeting would also review the situation with a view to classifying the possible dangers, assess preparedness at individual and collective levels.

Maihaja said that this was to ensure that every relevant agency was ready for any eventuality, if the water level keeps increasing. “This is a serious meeting; we must put heads together to first classify the situation, whether it is still yellow or red. “If it is red, surely we should act and part of the acting is the suggestion to set up a committee of five groups of three personnel from various sector to visit the front line states.

“It is for them to meet with the officials, go down to the villages that are really critically under threat and use all avenues to enlighten them to invigorate our enlightenment campaign electronically and physically to ensure that everybody is well informed as required by the law. “Secondly, we access our preparedness, informing our stakeholders so that wherever there is any equipment that is required, it is ready for deployment, should anything happens,” Maihaja said.

He called on state governments to provide alternative accommodation for those in the flood affected areas so that they do not camp in schools, especially as the schools are now in session. NAIJ.com earlier reported that the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) recently warned that many parts of the country were likely to experience flooding due to a shift in rainfall pattern caused by climate change.
