    NYCN pledges support for Abdullahi Adamu

    The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), has pledged its support to the National Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, in his quest to ensure that youths are carried along in the party affairs.

    Malam Jaafar Loko, the chairman of the Nasarawa State chapter, said this, in a statement on Thursday in Keffi.

    Loko said that youths’ inclusion and empowerment were some of the ideals that were mainstreamed into activities undertaken by the council to enhance Nigeria’s democracy.

    ”Empowering youths in politics, creating avenues for engagement and reducing barriers for young people’s political and economic participation are key to curbing youth restiveness.

    ”So, the significance of youth inclusion in politics can’t in any way be overemphasised,” he said.

    Loko stated that the APC National Chairman had always carried the youth along since his days as the governor of Nasarawa State.

    He said that the council was grateful to Adamu for appointing its Public Relations Officer I, Malam Muhammad Lawal, as his Personal Assistant on new media.

    ”The appointment of Lawal has rekindled the hope of Nasarawa youths and encouraged them to continue to mobilise support for the party.

    ”This is to ensure its victory at all levels in the forthcoming 2023 General Elections,” he said.

    Loko, however, appealed to the APC national leadership to encourage states chairmen of the party to priotise youths’ participation in the electoral process.

    Also, Alhaji Mohammed Idris, the Keffi Local Government Area (LGA) NYCN, Coordinator, lauded Adamu for appointing Lawal.

    “The appointment of Lawal excites Keffi youths, especially the members of the NYCN.

    “We thank Adamu (Turakin Keffi) for recognising and engaging one of us.

    ” This is a clear testimony of youths’ inclusion in the scheme of things at the national leadership of APC,” Idris said.

    2023: Adamu urges APC members to close ranks to ensure victory

    Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, the All Progressives Congress (APC), National Chairman has urged party members to close ranks and work as a team to ensure victory in the forthcoming general elections.

    Adamu made the call while speaking with newsmen after inaugurating an eight-member Abia Reconciliation Committee.

    “We have to do some works and forget some of the prejudices and stand together.

    ”We don’t want anybody to come here after the elections and start crying and laying blames on us for our failures.

    “I will not listen to that, this is the time to unite, this is the time to work for unity, if we do, God will be with us,” the APC national chairman said.

    He said ahead of inaugurating the committee, comprehensive meetings were held between the party’s leaders in Abia. Adamu said that they were involved in negotiations and its National Working Committee (NWC), especially during its primaries and after it.

    Adamu expressed optimism that with the inauguration of the committee, there would be peace in APC Abia. “We are not going to hold reconciliation meetings again.

    We will now leave it to the leaders of the party in Abia to play their politics in the state.

    “Abuja is not about Abia, go to Abia and play politics there, do the necessary, lobby and reconciliation there because all politics is local.

    “Abuja is not Abia locality, Abuja is the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), we converged here from various states.

    Let Abia go and work together,” he said.

    Adamu however, added that the party would not be satisfied with just 25 per cent of votes cast at the general elections.

    “All the national elections, House of Representatives, Senate, Governorship, likely the presidential election, we will not be satisfied with just the 25 per cent of votes cast.

    “No half way about it, if we are to win, we must try to win every state,” Adamu stressed.

    The Chairman of the committee, Mr Chris Adighije, in his remarks, said the committee would reconcile all aggrieved APC members in Abia. This, he said, was critical to enable the party build strength to face challenges from other political parties The APC National Chairman urged the members to quickly come together to work in unity.

    “We are on our way back to Abia to play the local politics, reconcile all our members and ensure that we go straight for the low hanging fruits which would have lost if we don’t get together.

    “And I know that by the grace of God and with the team, we are going to do the needful and ensure victory for our party,” he added.

    Adighije said the party’s chances of winning APC in the coming elections were bright.

    “If you look at my face very well you will know that I am an old war horse and I wouldn’t be standing here if I am not sure.

    “So, we have great chance, we only have to do the needful to work together,” he said.

    He added that the committee would do the needful to address every of the party’s challenges in Abia. The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Sen. Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, Deputy Chief Whip House of Representatives will serve as secretary of the committee.

    Other members of the committee are Mr Henry Ikoh, Minister of State for Science, Technology and Innovation, Emeka Atuma,  Martins Azubuike and Dr Emeka Wogu, former Minister of Labour and Productivity.

    The APC Abia governorship candidate, Mr Ikechi Emenike is also a member of the committee, among others (www.

    Buhari reiterates FG’s commitment to end strikes by ASUU, others

    President Muhammadu Buhari, in the course of the week, reiterated the determination of the Federal Government towards bringing to an end strikes embarked upon by Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and other unions in nation’s tertiary institutions.

    The President’s position was made known in a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, on July 20 in Abuja.

    However, the presidential aide dismissed as false media reports quoting President Buhari as giving two-week ultimatum to Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu to resolve the dispute between Federal Government and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).

    He said: “It is a pity that almost all media houses allowed themselves to be deceived by interested sources that are not the authorised spokesmen of government.’’ Shehu appealed to the media not to spread misinformation over the ongoing strike by members of ASUU.

    The president had earlier on July 19, unveiled the new Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC Limited), affirming that ”the company is mandated by law to ensure that Nigeria’s National Energy Security is guaranteed”.

    He said Africa’s largest National Oil Company (NOC) would also support sustainable growth across other sectors of the economy as it delivers energy to the world.

    At the event, which featured a Special rendition of the Theme Song ”Energy for today, Energy  for tomorrow, Energy for Everyone’‘ by an Ensemble, the president recounted how God had used him to consistently play an important role in shaping the destiny of the country’s NOC in the last 45 years.

    President Buhari also presided over meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on July 20 shortly after he inaugurated a compendium of ecological projects undertaken by his administration.

    The Council meeting approved contract worth N6 billion as augmentation for the Chochi irrigation project in Adamawa as well as N1.4billion for procurement of aviation equipment.

    NAN reports that immediately after the FEC meeting, the president met behind closed doors with the All Progressives Congress Vice Presidential candidate, former Gov. Kashim Shettima, at the State House, Abuja, on Wednesday.

    The APC vice presidential candidate was accompanied to the State House by Gov. Babagana Zulum of Borno.

    Buhari also presided over the meeting of the National Security Council on July 21.

    Addressing State House correspondents after the security meeting, the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, disclosed that the Federal Government might ban the use of motorcycles and mining activities to check banditry and terrorist activities across the country.

    He said the decision was aimed at curtailing the activities of terrorists, who used motorcycles to perpetrate their evil acts as well as mine solid minerals, and use the proceeds to procure arms.

    On July 22, President Buhari hosted a delegation from Nasarawa State, where he declared that the off-season elections in Anambra, Ekiti and Osun States had confirmed his administration’s irreversible commitment to credible and violence-free polls in the country.

    He urged the electorate to vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the next general elections to ensure continuity in the polity, and stability in the country and West African region.

    The president told the high-powered delegation, led by the State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, that the Electoral Act, signed by him earlier this year, was an attestation of the fulfilment of the administration’s determination and commitment to the tenets of the rule of law.

    President Buhari concluded the week with a meeting with stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by the National Chairman of the party, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, on July 22.

    Speaking at the event, Buhari said that the unity, security and prosperity of the country would matter most to him beyond his days in office as President, expressing delight that the party was working  towards that eventuality.

    He thanked members of the delegation “for the kind words on my role in processes leading to the emergence of our candidate and his running mate for the Presidential election in February, next year”.
