    Akande reveals how Buhari reneged on promise to make Tinubu running mate in 2015

    A former Osun state governor, Bisi Akande, revealed how President Muhammadu Buhari reneged on his promise to make Bola Tinubu his running mate in the 2015 elections.

    According to the Daily Trust report, Mr Akande said this in "My Participations", his autobiography, which was released in Lagos on Thursday.

    Buhari was the special guest of honor at the event, which was attended by Tinubu and other APC stalwarts.

    In the book, Akande said that Buhari approached him to convince him that Tinubu was his running mate, but he told the president that the focus should be on the primary elections that had not been held up to that point.

    Akande, who was interim national president of the Congress of All Progressives, APC, said it was Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina who sent him Buhari.

    “In April 2014, I was in Abuja when Buhari called me and asked me to convince Bola to run with him. Governor Masari was the one who came to call me. When I followed him into Buhari's private hall, Bola Tinubu was already sitting there.

    “So when Buhari raised the matter, I warned them that this should not extend beyond the four of us. "How could he be talking about a running mate if he hadn't secured the ticket?" I am used.

    “I thought that such information, if leaked to the general public, could affect the conduct of the party's congress in the presidential primaries, if not its choice of candidate. I thanked Buhari for thinking so highly of our friend. Bola later told me that Buhari's emissaries had approached him, but he tried to avoid the gesture and show no interest. We agreed that we would reopen the matter when Buhari had obtained the ticket, ”he explained.

    However, Akande said things changed when Buhari became the party's presidential candidate.

    He said former Edo State Governor John Odigie-Oyegun, who succeeded him as APC chairman, once asked Buhari in his own presence about the geopolitical zones from which he would choose his running mate.

    “He said it was from this list that Buhari would choose a running mate. I objected. I turned to Buhari. "General, where are you picking your running mate from?" He replied, "The Southwest." 'Oh! I didn't know, '' Oyegun said. He apologized.

    “I did not know why Oyegun made that proposal and at whose request. As party chairman, maybe some people pressured you to do that.

    “So, I called Buhari aside. Is our arrangement still standing? I referred it to our discussion in April. He said yes!"

    Akande said that she later realized that some people had "formed" into a group, called the Northern Interest Group, and persuaded Buhari not to allow a Muslim-Muslim ticket.

    “We were all in Abuja and Tinubu ran to me with this information. I wanted to know if the understanding we reached with Buhari had changed. I called Buhari and she said that she now needed three names from us. I was mad at him.

    "General, this was not what we agreed on," I said annoyed. Are you changing our agreement? I knew I was getting mad. He said he was under pressure from some northern governors, including Muslims. I told him that the place belonged to the southwest and that among the Yoruba religion is not a factor of leadership, ”he said.

    Oshiomhole was taken aback by the narration. "If you really promised to make Asiwaju your running mate, it wouldn't be fair to renege," he said. Buhari now said that he never meant it that way. What he originally meant was that Tinubu should associate with him. "

    Minister inaugurates 100-tonne LPG plant in Katsina

    A 100-ton LPG LPG plant built by Buterny Energy Company opened in Katsina on Saturday.

    The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylvia, during the launch said that the plant was underway at the time when several projects were being implemented that would address the availability, accessibility and affordability of gas in the country.

    Mr. Sylvia, represented by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Sani Gwarzo, added that the price of gas was currently a major threat to the availability and affordability of fuel in Nigeria.

    “The Federal Government was leveraging the gas pricing framework and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) gas development fund to create an appropriate financing model to support gas extraction, especially among vulnerable groups.

    “I cannot complete this speech without mentioning the price, which is a huge threat to affordability and gas penetration.

    "Therefore, the economy of Katsina State and indeed the Northwest and all of Nigeria are expected to benefit from the socio-economic twists associated with the gas value chain," he said.

    The minister added that smaller countries with fewer gas reserves than Nigeria, such as Kuwait, have higher per capita gas consumption due to their investment in gas infrastructure.

    He urged Butane Energy to make his plant a role model for LPG tanks by deploying technology to boost market penetration, creating financial instruments to incentivize the outflow of its bottled gas.

    "And also investing in human capital development to attract and retain a resilient workforce and operation in a globally acceptable and responsible manner," he said.

    Butane Energy Chairman Isah Inuwa said the company's aspiration in the first phase of the investment program was to have five plants in northern Nigeria.

    “Kano will have 180 metric tons, in Bauchi, 120 metric tons, in Abuja, 180 metric tons and in Kaduna, 180 metric tons.

    “Today we have completed the designs for the Kaduna and Bauchi plants and by the grace of God we are going through the contracting processes between December and January, and we are hopeful that before the end of January the construction works will begin.

    “By April, we will start the Kano and Bauchi plants with a combined tonnage of 360.

    “Our expectation is that by September 2022, we will have completed five plants with a total capacity of 820 metric tons and we will have the capacity to process 9,200 12.5 kg cylinders per eight-hour shift per day.

    “We would have invested almost N3 billion at the end of the first phase of our development program. We expect the annual gross income from these five plants to exceed N20 billion. "

    Also in his remarks, Governor Aminu Masari, who inaugurated the plant, said that a lot of awareness is needed for people to understand that gas is cheaper and cleaner energy to use.

    He asked interested parties to devise means to make the initial purchase of gas installations, such as the cylinder and hose, affordable.

    He promised all investors who were willing to invest in the state of the support of his administration.

    Foundation develops new curriculum for Tsangaya schools in 6 states

    A non-profit organization, Khalifa Dankadai Charity, KDC, Foundation has developed a new program to empower 6,000 “Almajiris” in six states.

    The program is applicable and designed to reform the Tsangaya (Almajiri) school system in Katsina, Kano, Niger, Jigawa, Zamfara and Sokoto states, said founder Alhaji Khalifa Ahmed-Dankadai.

    He said the foundation had selected 60 Tsangaya schools in the six states for a test in hopes of expanding the program to other schools.

    “The program aims to establish a standardized, integrated and competency-based learning system through the Community Library Project, which is implemented in collaboration with Nigerian government offices.

    “Collaboration is with the advice of federal, state and local governments and other relevant stakeholders with the support of the United States Embassy in Abuja.

    “The purpose of the community library project is to provide a platform for stakeholders to implement the model to reform the Almajiri education system in northern Nigeria.

    “This can be done by administering a competency-based curriculum and operational guidelines for the standardization of Tsangaya schools.

    “It also aims to implement integrated programs of learning, skills development and reorientation of community values ​​in rural communities.

    “This aims to combat the migration of children between rural and urban areas of Almajiri.

    "It is hoped that this will curb the unwanted flow of Almajiris into the northern region towards the achievement of successful and lasting reform," Ahmed-Dankadai said.

    He stressed that the foundation focuses on the implementation of high impact and sustainable models for comprehensive and sustainable reforms “Almajirci”.

    According to him, a roundtable held in Katsina on Tuesday was an important component of the project as it is designed to be a strictly community-based effort.

    Jega tasks northern elite on good, selfless leadership

    Professor Attahiru Jega challenged the leaders of the North on good, patriotic and selfless leadership in the mold of the late prominent statesman, Alhaji Maitama Sule.

    Jega issued the challenge at the Maitama Sule Leadership Lecture Series hosted by the Coalition of Northern Nigeria, CNG, on Monday in Katsina.

    He described the late Sule, who was the Danmasanin Kano, as a selfless and patriotic Nigerian who served the country well and protected the northerners.

    Don University described the northern states as the region with the highest indices of social challenges plaguing the nation.

    “Whether it's poverty, unemployment, insecurity, infant mortality, out-of-school children, poor girls' education or even problems with early marriage.

    “Whatever you can think of, the terrible statistics are still coming from the north of this country,” he said.

    According to Jega, the root causes of the crises come from a lack of leadership and selfishness, with a narrow vision and ideas to develop the country.

    Mr Jega said that former northern rulers such as Maitama Sule and others ruled the country from a young age, and each of them has been very successful in protecting and developing the region and securing its integrity.

    “But decades later, as they cherished these heroes, have passed memories of leaders, what kind of leadership qualities does the North have now,” he asked.

    He called on young people to know that they have the great task of developing by actively participating in politics so as not to let the vandals economically destroy the nation.

    Mr. Jega also praised the NGC for its creativity in realizing the need to start engaging young people to save Nigeria and especially the north from the social crises plaguing the region.

    Previously, Governor Aminu Masari's special adviser on security issues, Ibrahim Katsina, called for the country's borders to collapse because Nigeria's borders were poorly managed.

    Dr Muttaqa Rabe-Darma, while speaking, explained that there were over 3,000 illegal border roads in Nigeria.

    According to him, such a situation is responsible for the many challenges of insecurity facing the country.

    He called on the government to step up its efforts to secure the borders using advanced technological devices.

    Katsina State Governor Aminu Masari said the federal government has spent more than N45 billion on various social intervention programs to improve the lives of vulnerable people in the state.

    The governor revealed this on Tuesday, during the launch of the Katsina Health Workers Square and guesthouse built by Nigeria's national health and health workers union, MHWUN.

    He said the social intervention programs introduced by President Muhammadu Buhari had significantly tackled vulnerability and supported the most vulnerable households in the northern states.

    “According to our culture and traditions here in the north of the country, the older you get, the more responsibilities you take on because we don't have a social security system.

    “The extended family system was the only social safety net we had until recently, when President Buhari began to introduce social interventions.

    “This is the bedrock of social security where there is direct support to the most vulnerable people of at least 5,000 naira each per month.

    “In these social interventions alone, the federal government, in July of this year, spent over 45 billion naira in Katsina state.

    "I want you to imagine what would have been COVID-19, insecurity and the fall in the price of oil, what the situation would have been," he imagined.

    Mr Masari added that the state government is spending 1.2 billion naira per month on the payment of pensions for local governments and state retirees, and that it plans to clear all pension arrears. and bonuses before his term expires in 2023.

    In his own speech, MHWUN National President Biobelemoye Josiah urged the government to work to reduce the challenges of climate change, in order to protect the lives of Nigerians.

    Mr Josiah, represented by Union National Vice President Kabir Minjibir, said if climate change was left unchecked it would escalate into unprepared labor migration, food shortages and dilapidated health conditions.

    He donated the sum of 1.5 million naira to the Katsina State Council on behalf of the national body of the union to support its landmark developments.

    Earlier, the president of MHWUN in Katsina, Mannir Suleiman, said the square has nine shops, bedrooms and living room with stand-alone toilets each, while the guesthouse consists of five stand-alone rooms.

    As part of the union's other accomplishments, Suleiman said the union has provided food and medicine to internally displaced people in Batsari and other frontline local government areas, LGAs of the state, among other social interventions.

    “We were able to provide financial assistance to union members, especially those who wanted to continue their studies, both at home and abroad.

    “And also the provision of medical assistance and the donation of food / sanitary items to the orphanage and vulnerable groups.

    “In addition, we have provided financial assistance to our members who have fallen ill or been victims of a disaster,” said Mr. Suleiman.
