    2023: Okowa cautions against cyber bullying in election campaigns 

    Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, Governor of Delta and Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic  Party (PDP) has cautioned against cyber bullying in the name of campaigns for the 2023 elections.

    Okowa made the remarks on Tuesday in Abuja at the Northern Christian Youth Assembly Summit, with the theme ‘Unifying Nigeria:The Role of Northern Christian Youths and Women’.

    He said that Nigerians should be allowed to use the cyber space to express their choices ahead of the 2023 general elections.

    “We are beginning to see bullying in the cyber space of our country, I think that everybody should have his space, time, to be able to think, make comments without being bullied,” he said.

    According to him, what is important in the build up to the election is for Nigerians not to act on emotions, but be guided with knowledge and build cohesion in electing credible leaders to transform Nigeria.

    “This is the hallmark of those who think and use their brains; when we talk about the future is for the youths, it is actually from today.

    “However, the real truth is, our youths particularly youths leaders must be in position to have a clear understanding of things so that they are able to guide others aright.

    “This is because if you have a leadership that is not able to provide that true leadership of guiding people aright and people begin to think in the wrong way, then you create further problems rather than finding solutions and we all go the wrong path,” Okowa said.

    He commended the group for organising the summit to discuss Nigeria’s challenges and find solutions.

    Okowa also said that the topic of the event was apt, because it focused on unifying Nigeria.

    He called on Nigerians not to practice politics of religion, but to unite to elect leaders that would build a Nigeria for all where things would work.

    He assured that if elected, their administration would give priority to education and tackle poverty.

    In his remarks, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, National Chairman of PDP said it was time for Christians to show greater interest in politics.

    “I do not think God will just come down and answer your prayer, you need to act too, that way, God will help us.

    “For a long time, many people saw politics as something to be left to others, but I am happy that today this narrative has changed, events have made it possible to see that the control of political power is very important.

    “Therefore, it is important that Christians have to rise up, come together and show a greater interest in politics.

    ”Ayu also urged them to join parties and be interested in what is happening around them so as not to allow bad leaders takeover power and misuse it to affect them, their families and communities negatively.

    He said that Nigerian needed leaders that would attend to the challenges facing the country and assured that Atiku Abubakar, the PDP Presidential candidate, will be the right choice to achieve that.

    He assured that if given the chance, they would unify the country and enhance national development .

    “We looked around and we thought we have to give him not just a vice president that will assist him, but we did our homework to select a young man who is highly educated, very humble, and who has done very well as a governor in his home state.

    “It is on Okowa’s  personal merit he was selected by the party as the vice presidential candidate to Atiku Abubakar.

    “I think Nigeria will be very lucky to have two such people who are committed to development, who are detribalised and who believe in uniting this country,” Ayu said.

    He, therefore, urged the group to support Atiku and mobilise Nigerians to vote for PDP, so as to salvage Nigeria.

    In his comments, the Anglican Archbishop of Jos, Rev. Marcus Ibrahim, who read from Ezekiel 3:16-21, called on youths to guide other citizens to elect credible leaders in 2023.Ibrahim called on the Church and youths to be the voice of the voiceless by speaking against evil and injustice in the country.

    “As we enter election year, we should give our people direction, by encouraging them to come out and vote.

    “Youths as watchmen should herald a new dawn in the country as we prepare for 2023 general elections.

    “To me, the winning team is Atiku and Okowa, so we should make noise everywhere because that is one of the strategy God taught Joshua to defeat Jericho,” he said.

    Earlier, the host, Mr Bok Ayuba, former Speaker, Plateau House of Assemby, said the group had agreed to back the PDP candidates, because they believed in their capacity to rescue Nigeria and make things right.

    Ayuba said the group has branches in all local government areas of the country and would go round to mobilise support for the PDP.

    “We will go to every state to mobilise from each local government to have a great number to discuss the way forward ahead of 2023 elections,” he added.

    He urged members of the group “to spread the news and galvanise massive voters’ support to ensure PDP wins in 2023”.

    2023: Ayu crowns Atiku as Nigeria’s Raila Odinga, says VON DG

    The Director-General of Voice of Nigeria (VON),Mr Osita Okechukwu says the 2023 general elections in Nigeria will mirror many aspects of the recent presidential poll in the Republic of Kenya, among which are electronic transmission of results and expected outcome.

    In a statement on Sunday, Okechukwu said the crisis of confidence and mutual suspicion dogging the major opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), where the national chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, received a controversial vote of confidence from the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC).

    He regretted what he called the comedy of errors and odd consensus in PDP caused by the unholy alliance between the duo of Ayu and the party’s presidential candidate, former Vice- President Atiku Abubakar, to breach the PDP’s constitution and by extension the power rotation gentleman agreement that holds Nigeria together.

    According to Okechukwu, what Ayu succeeded in doing by retaining the imbalance between the North and South in the PDP and arrogantly refusing to step down from his party’s high horse chairmanship, is simply to wilfully coronate Abubakar, as Nigeria’s 2023 version of His Excellency Raila Odinga.

    “You will note that after all, both Atiku and Raila share a lot in common – former Vice Presidents, and serial presidential candidates.

    Indeed, Ayu has by his nepotism has given us impetus to, from henceforth, with no harm meant, address Nigeria’s former Vice-President as His Excellency Atiku Odinga,” he declared.

    The APC chieftain narrated how most patriotic Nigerians waited with high expectations that the 79th PDP National Executive Council will take a profound decision aimed at redressing the North-South imbalance by placating the betrayed members of its Southern bloc with the chairmanship.

    “But, having superimposed nepotism and arrogantly breached PDP Constitution; Ayu and Atiku rather propelled the tokenism of swapping the ceremonial BOT chairmanship, which was akin to telling a child at a village ceremony that since plates to serve rice have finished, he should open his palms to collect his portion,” Okechukwu stated.

    Okechukwu, also a foundation member of the All Progressives Congress (APC)said that PDP has finally convinced Nigerians that they are neither prepared nor interested in building a harmonious, united and progressive country.

    “Atiku and Ayu have regrettably painted PDP in opaque colour of party of share the money, stomach infrastructure, and rent seekers; by placing their personal interests above national unity.

    I dare say that by this unholy divisive alliance, PDP has manipulated itself out of contention for the 2023 general elections, hence the Odinga insignia,” he said.

      I will meet expectations of PDP, Nigerians – Atiku

    The Presidential candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has pledged that he would meet the expectations of the party and  Nigerians when elected president in 2023. Abubakar made the promise during his remarks at the PDP 97 National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Thursday.

    He appreciated the NEC members for their support during the party’s convention in May where he emerged as the presidential candidate of the PDP.

    “I cannot thank you enough.

    My promise is that I will meet your expectations and the expectations of Nigerians.

    “Let me also use this opportunity to thank our outgoing BoT Chairman for his services and sense of patriotism for our great party,” Abubakar said.

    The former vice president also expressed his commitment to ensuring that the internal crisis in the party was resolved.

    “Many speakers have alluded to family disagreement, family disagreements are normal even in normal families as well as political families.

    “But what I can assure you is that we are determined to resolve those issues internally.

    There are not really fundamental disagreements, it is normal,” Abubakar said.

    He appealed to all party members to ensure that it’s challenges were resolved internally within the provisions of the party’s constitution.

    “As a political party we have our constitution, our rules and our regulations.

    “I want to urge that no matter the level of disagreement, it should be resolved within our constitution, within our rules, within our regulations.

    “We have all what it takes to guide us to continue to nurture this political party, to provide a platform for all Nigerians to realize their collective and individual aspirations.

    “Therefore, I wish to appeal to all members of our party to make sure that all our disagreements are resolved internally,” Abubakar said.

    In his remarks, the former President of the Senate and acting Chairman of PDP Board of Trustees (BoT), Sen. Adolphus Wabara urged party members to always control their emotions and ensure disagreements within the party were addressed internally.

    “The PDP has an inbuilt mechanism to solve problems.

    We have done it several times.

    When people expect us to implode, that is when we become very glorious.

    “I want to advise us that we should always deprive ourselves in-house no matter what the anger is; let us deprive ourselves in-house rather than playing to the gallery.

    “We should watch and control our utterances because by and large, only God knows tomorrow.

    “Because once you voice out something, it is always difficult for you to pick back what you voice out.

    “My advice to use is that we should be mature enough to control our temper,” Wabara said.

    Earlier, the party’s National Chairman, Sen. Iyorchia Ayu, said he was happy that PDP is united and Nigerians were enthusiastic about the party in spite of the impression being created by some people.

    “I am happy that the Nigerian people are interested in our party.

    I am interested not because we disagree among ourselves, but in our capacity to deliver and when we take over power.

    “We have done it before and I believe that people will also give us their mandates.

    ” Ayu urged the party to focus on the issues that worried Nigerians including issues of security, education,  economy, health,  national infrastructure that will help the country to move forward.

    On his part, the Chairman, PDP Governors Forum, Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, said that the forum was working to address the misunderstanding in the party.

    He pledged that PDP governors would continue delivery of dividends of democracy to Nigerians.

    Tambuwal commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and President Muhammadu Buhari for improving of the country electoral system, urging them to sustain it to make 2023 general elections free and credible.

    “We must as people of goodwill, as believers and democracy encouraged President Buhari, indeed INEC and all security agencies to ensure that we have free, fair, transparent election in 2023. “In any case, that was what PDP presided over in 2015. So it’s only an improvement on the legacy of the PDP if that is done by the APC administration,” Tambuwal said.

    The Senate Minority Leader, Sen. Chukwuka Utazi, said that the party Caucus in the National Assembly was united and indivisible.

    Utazi, who pledged their support to the party in the 2023 general elections, urged all to work together for the success of the party.

    Atiku pledges to work with stakeholders to end ASUU strike

    The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has pledged to work with government and lecturers to end incessant strike in Nigeria universities.

    Abubakar stated this at a youths programme with the theme “Intergenerational Synergy on Government”, organised by PDP to commemorate the 2022 International Youth Day celebration in Abuja on Friday.

    Abubakar, who narrated how his father was arrested for never wanting him to go to school, described education as fundamental right of any citizen, especially the children and youths.

    He decried the inability of the government to resolve lingering strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), saying such would not happen under a PDP or his led administration when elected as president.

    “I want to pledge that I will work with university authorities and government to make sure we end this incessant strikes by ASUU.

    “This is because education is fundamental to your growth.

    It doesn’t matter whether you are in politics, business or any sector.

    The fundamental right of every youth or every citizen is to be educated.

    “Therefore it is the responsibility of any responsible government to make sure that right is given to every Nigerian, every youth in this country,” Abubakar said.

    The former vice president who reiterated his pledge for youth inclusive government, promised to provide youths with the opportunities to acquire the training and experience to take over from the older generations.

    Abubakar urged the youth to support the PDP to take over government in 2023 to rescue the youth and the nation.

    “I believe that the PDP provides the best platform for you to actualise your individual’s collective and national aspirations,” he said.

    Abubakar encouraged youths who wanted to go into politics, either as part-time or full time career, to be patient and courageous in building their ways to the top.

    The PDP National Chairman, Sen. Iyorchia Ayu, said that the party would take care of all when it comes back to power by 2023. He said that there would be sufficient representation for youths in the government, both in elected or appointed positions.

    “PDP is the only party that has done it in the past.

    I will do it again.

    “We will rebuild this country and you will have a better country.

    Power belongs to you; power does not belong to we the old generation.

    We are only rebuilding to hand over to you,” he said.

    The Minority Leader of the House, Sen. Ndudi Elumelu, the acting Chairman of the occasion, who passed a vote of confidence on Ayu and his executive, urged members to join the party leaders to rescue it.

    Elumelu said those calling for the dissolution of Ayu’s National Working Committee (NWC) did not mean well for the party and the nation.

    “What they should be thinking about is how to join us together to unite this party, unite Nigerians that are looking forward to PDP to rescue them and of course, come back to power come 2023.” Elumelu urged the youth not to be deterred by what they were going through, but work with PDP to return to power.

    “Let me charge youth to note that not only the future, but the present belongs to you.

    It is your time and you must make good use of it,” Ayu said.

    The PDP National Youth Leader, Muhammed Suleiman, advised youths not to see leadership as an entitlement, but a process that involved all stakeholders in every aspect of the society.

    Suleiman said that the youth must be prepared to have the right mindset and humility to deal with the challenges that come with leadership.

    He said that the PDP NWC, led by Ayu, was fully youth-oriented and ready to support the youth in any endeavour.

    “Our presidential candidate Abubakar has shown over the years that he is a true believer in the capacity of the youth.
