APC Chieftain Weeps As INEC Declares Ortom Winner Of Benue Election.

 
A former President of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Daniel Onjeh, on Sunday wept after INEC declared Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue winner of the 2019 governorship election in the state.

Mr Onjeh, who started crying in reaction to Mr Ortom’s victory at his home town in Ogbadibo, stated that he was weeping for Benue people.

According to him, he did not know how they would be able to endure another four years of torture and deprivation under Mr Ortom.

Mr Onjeh said he was not sure if President Muhammadu Buhari would release more bailout funds and Paris Club refunds to Benue in the next four years since the ones released before had not been accounted for.

He said he wept for Benue workers, pensioners and their families because they went out enmass to vote out Mr Ortom for nonpayment of salaries and pensions.

Mr Onjeh is also the Board Chairman, Project Development Agency (PRODA)

“How long will the children of workers and pensioners in Benue be out of school for lack of financial support from their incapacitated and oppressed parents?

“How long will Benue workers and pensioners endure this hunger and denial as a result of nonpayment of their wages?”

“The painful side is that the same resources the workers and pensioners were denied, were the same Ortom used to buy votes.”

Mr Onjeh expressed surprise at the way PDP big shots in Benue, who condemned Mr Ortom’s governance style while he was in APC, made a U-turn to support the same man they condemned.

“I’m surprised at how David Mark, who accused Ortom of distribution of wheelbarrows to Benue youths as the only project he has done, could turn around and support the same Ortom to win second term in office.”

“Suswam also accused Ortom of ballooning the wage bill when Ortom was in APC but turned around to support him to win a second term in office.”

“Abba Moro also condemned Ortom and said that he failed woefully as such, does not deserve a second term but turned around to support him because he defected to their party.”

“This flip-flap Politicians’ behavior shows that they are only working for their own selfish purpose and not for the common good of the masses as always portrayed,” Mr Onjeh lamented.

The former student unionist therefore, encouraged Emmanuel Jime of the APC who contested against Mr Ortom not to give up on the fight for his mandate.

Mr Onjeh urged Mr Jime to head to the tribunal, pointing out that he had good grounds to do so since there were so many irregularities of rigging and electoral malpractices in the conduct of the election.

“I expected INEC to have cancelled the places where the use of Card Readers was even disregarded.

“The places are Guma, Logo, Buruku, Ukum and Vandeikya local government areas.

transistor radio

A 50-year-old blind man, Abubakar Umar of Sabon Gida Kano Road, on Monday prayed a Kaduna Sharia Court ll Magajin Gari to recover his N350 and radio set from a repairs man.

Mr Umar told the court that his radio set was the only friend he had and he was tired of going to the repairer’s shop seeking back his N350 and the radio set.

“I am a blind beggar, I suffered to raise that N350, he must give me back my money and radio set, he has betrayed the trust I had in him.

“I am tired of going to his shop. Sometimes he tells his boys to tell me that he has travelled and when I go to the shop, I hear his voice speaking softly.”

The respondent, 51-year-old Garba Abubakar of Sabon Gida Guragu Street, Kano Road, Kaduna, who appeared in the court with the radio set, told the court that he delayed fixing the radio due to the unstable power supply.

“I fixed the radio set. I was only keeping it for him to come and get it.

”Umar has a temper. The last time he came to my shop, he began hitting everybody with his stick, I refused to give him the radio because of his last action”, he added.

After listening to their testimonies, the judge, Musa Sa’ad-Goma, ordered Mr Abubakar to tune the radio to a particular station, to see if the radio was working.

The judge also ordered Mr Umar (the blind man) to touch the radio to confirm if it was his.

However, Mr Umar tested the radio and further complained that the stations are not tuning and that the ambience was very low.

The judge further urged Mr Umar to remain calm and not to go to the repairer’s shop again for any action, promising that the case will be solved amicably.

Mvuleni said he paid the native doctor. “My wife came back home a few days later but refused to sleep with me and stopped doing housework.

“She said I was evil and vowed to never allow me to have sex with her. I called Dr Mirror again and he inserted his fingers in her private part. He said something was having sex with my wife and causing her to deny me sex.”

Mvuleni said his wife continued to consult the native doctor and would come home late and sleep on the floor.

“She and the kids left on Christmas Eve and I later heard she was seeing the native doctor. “Dr Mirror failed to help me. I want a refund. It’s fine if my wife doesn’t come back.”

Daughter of NGE’s Deputy President Escapes from kidnappers’ Den.

 
Mrs. Habiba Abdulsalam, the daughter of the Deputy President of Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE), Mallam Uba Gaya, who was abducted recently in Kano, has regained her freedom and reunited with her family members.

Speaking on the terrifying incident, Uba-Gaya told PRNigeria that his daughter miraculously escaped from her kidnappers’ den on Saturday night.

Gaya, who disclosed that the abduction of his daughter happened between 5 and 6 pm on Friday evening, described the incident as most ‘horrific and traumatic’ for him and the extended family.

He said they could not sleep properly, just as many of them were tramatized and lost appetite for foods.

He added that they got to know of Habiba’s kidnap when his younger brother called some few minutes past 5pm to inform him that his daughter’s phone number was not reachable, after she had spoken to a close family member at about 4:49 pm.

“On the fateful Friday, Habiba went to plait her hair in the house of one of her friends. And after making her hair, she then proceeded to my late father’s house in Kano metropolis. But the ugly fate that would later befall my daughter started when she boarded a tricycle, and the Keke rider thereafter took two other women at various locations in Kano town, immediately he carried her.

“According to my daughter, the Keke rider then took a road leading to the popular Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital. Immediately, a bus came and overtook them. It quickly stopped, and three hefty men emerge and whisked them into the vehicle and zoomed towards Zaria.

“When the kidnappers arrived at an area in Kaduna that Friday evening, they took my daughter and the two other women to an unknown house. They were blindfolded and taken to a thick forest in Niger State,” Mal. Gaya narrated.

However, Mal. Gaya explained that his daughter’s escape was miraculous in nature, owing to the intensive supplications offered by family members and teeming well-wishers since the news of her abduction broke on Friday.

Uba-Gaya further told PRNigeria that Habiba’s freedom was secured without paying any ransom to the kidnappers even when some members of the family had started negotiating the sale of assets in case.

Narrating he escape, Uba-Gaya said: “What happened was that on Saturday night, my daughter told her abductors that she wanted to relieve herself. So, one of them followed her to an isolated area, some metres from the place they were held hostage. But unexpectedly, the man who accompanied her to urinate told Habiba that she had been disturbing them and told her to leave them alone.

“So, my daughter took the opportunity and took her heels that night. By Sunday morning she arrived at a certain settlement In Niger State, where she met some people and narrated with tears her ordeal. They took her to Dikko Junction, along Kaduna-Abuja highway and gave her a phone to call her family about her escape.

“We are glad that Habiba was not hurt by her kidnappers. Right now, she is back in Kano after boarding an Air flight from Abuja yesterday. Her abduction and subsequent reunion with us was without paying a dime as ransom.”

The Deputy President of NGE expressed gratitude to the Police, and other security agencies, especially the Army for its robust intelligence gathering on the circumstances surrounding his daughter’s abduction and timely release by the kidnappers.
