Governor Rochas Okorocha of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has lost the Government House polling booth to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the governorship and House of Assembly elections.

Similarly, his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu of the Action Alliance (AA) lost to PDP.

With the result collated after the governorship election, PDP polled a total of 38 and 62 votes from units 001 and 002 respectively while APC polled 6 and 7 votes from unit 001 and 002 respectively.

For the House of Assembly election, PDP polled 40 and 53 votes from units 001 and 002, while APC polled 8 and 7 votes from the units.

The AA polled 14 and 21 votes from the two polling units for the governorship and 9 and 27 votes for the House of Assembly.

Total votes scored by the PDP in the governorship election at the Government House unit was 100 while APC scored 13.

For House of Assembly PDP polled 93 while APC polled 17.

Meanwhile, the election in the state contrary to expectations of violence was relatively peaceful except in few areas.

In Amakohia Ubi, Owerri West Local Government Area , rival political party thugs invaded polling units 03,04,13 and 14 in Ward 9 and made away with ballot boxes which caused pandemonium and brought voting in the area to an end.

Also, in Asa, Awara, Ilile and Osemoto in Ohaji/Egbema and Oguta respectively, thugs also were said to have snatched ballot boxes.

However, a PDP party agent at a ward in Nkwerre council whose full identity was yet to be identified was said to have been shot dead

According to an eye witness, two supporters of the AA party and APC had a heated argument which resulted in one of them firing a gun whose bullet hit the PDP party agent.

The State Police Public Relation Officer, Orlando Ikeokwu has confirmed the incident, but however said that details were still sketchy.

Meanwhile, the governorship candidates of the AA party, Uche Nwosu and that of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) Ifeanyi Araraume have commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for improving on the last election it conducted.

They both expressed satisfaction with the conduct of INEC so far.

Orji Kalu’s Conviction Politically Motivated – Nnamdi Kanu

Published

on

By

The leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has described Senator Orji Uzor Kalu’s ill- advised conviction over alleged fraud and money laundering as politically motivated.

Kanu in a statement made available to Igbere TV on Thursday said he warned Sen. Kalu that the northerners do not love the Igbos.

He said this is because of the pathological hatred Alimajiris have towards Biafrans (Igbos especially) because their industry and ingenuity expose their mediocrity.

He, however, described Kalu as one who is committed to one Nigeria.

The statement reads,

“I warned him when he came to see me in Kuje Prison that those illiterate unity begging Alimajiris from the desert don’t love him but he wouldn’t listen.”

“I warned him that Fulani caliphate will not rest until they conquer, subdue and enslave the entire East and West because of their sense of inferiority complex, but he wouldn’t listen.”

“I warned him of the pathological hatred these Alimajiris have towards Biafrans (Igbos especially) because our industry and ingenuity expose their mediocrity, but he wasn’t having it. He was a committed One Nigeria apologist.”

“I reminded him of what happened to Ken Saro Wiwa who like him believed so much in One Nigeria and ended up being killed by the same Alimajiri he served so dilligently against Biafra, but he wouldn’t listen.”

“Today they are picking them off one after the other because they know IPOB won’t fight for any Efulefu. If he had known what was to become of him, he would have done exactly what I told him during our meeting, join the nearest IPOB family and support the Biafra restoration project. Isn’t it ironic the only thing that will save Orji Uzor Kalu now is the coming of Biafra. Will Dave Umahi, Okezie Ikpeazu, Willie Obiano, Rochas Okorocha learn from this?”

I Collect Less Than N1 Million Pension As Former Governor – Alao-Akala

Published

on

By

Former governor of Oyo state, Adebayo Alao-Akala, has described as shocking and unrealistic rumour making the rounds in some quarters that past governors in Nigeria receive jumbo pension running into millions of naira.

The former governor also said that the claim by some elements that former Zamfara State governor, Abdulaziz Yari, wrote his successor, Bello Matawalle, to demand payment of outstanding N10 million monthly pension may be a figment of some people’s imagination after all.

The social media was saturated with the claim that the former Zamfara State governor had expressed his misgivings over the non-payment of his entitlement in a letter dated October 17, 2019, saying that he had only been paid twice since he left the office.

However, the former governor of Oyo state, while admitting that the amount payable as pension varies from state to state, said, no state in Nigeria can pay N10 million as pension to a former governor or as salary to a sitting governor.

Citing the case of Oyo, he said: “I was a former deputy governor and a state governor. I want to tell you that I don’t know where those people got that information from and I saw the letter but I don’t know if he was the one that wrote the letter.

“I doubt whether he has denied it too but I don’t think it is correct; it is not possible. Not even Lagos state can pay that amount to any former governor. Let me tell you what I know: Every four years, they supposed to change our car.”

He described as unfounded the claim in some quarters that every three years governors get six new cars. He added that it is untrue that deputy governors get up to five new cars every three years as being rumoured.

“My reply to this is that authoritatively as a former governor, I am not on this package. People must have been looking at me and other ex-governors and say that we are stinkingly rich. I collect less than a million naira a month as pension. I think it is about N700,000, I won’t lie to you. In that amount, allowances for the cook, the gardener and the security man is embedded.

“In fact, on assumption of office Makinde said that he thought his money would be about N5million. He donated his monthly salary to the pensioners… Of course, we are not in government but whatever is his salary is the same as our salary.

“The question is that is the present governor of Zamfara taking N10m? It is a constitutional matter; you cannot take money outside that law. It is a lie. No house is built for any governor in Oyo state.

“Some states build houses for past governors but we don’t have that law in Oyo state,” he said.
