OSUN NIGERIAN YOUTH CONGRESS COMMENDS OONI OF IFE FOR HIS CHARGE ON YOUTH INCLUSION IN GOVERNANCE

Published

on

 

The attention of the Nigerian Youth Congress NYC, Osun State Chapter; a foremost and non-partisan youth-focused organization in Nigeria, has been drawn to the revolutionary cum thought-provoking address delivered by His Imperial Majesty, Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja II) at the just concluded National Security Summit organized by the leadership of the National Assembly.

In his address, the imperial majesty emphasized the inevitability of the role of youth density in the business of national security and development. He stated further that the situation of things in Nigeria in the present time is not in any way favorable to the Nigerian youths who are hungry and angry. That the schism between the political leaders and their constituents is so great that the leaders have lost touch with what the people are passing through.

He stressed further that a national dialogue without the recognition and presence of the youths density is just a merry chase, equivalent to a waste of time. He however appealed to the leadership of the National Assembly and other political leaders to consider the plights of Nigerians, most especially youth density who are the life of the nation and hope of the future.

As a youth-focused organization, we align with the thought of His Imperial Majesty as it is in fact the crux of the objectives of what we stand for as a group. It is indubitable that the progress of any nation determined by the manifest presence of qualitative leadership and plentitude of human capital development infused into the youthful population.

Going forward, we appeal to our leaders and representatives both at the local, state and federal levels to take a hint from this and administer an all-inclusive government

REVEALED: WHY APC LEADERSHIP SHOULD NULLIFY PARTY’S GUBERNATORIAL PRIMARIES

Published

By

 

The APC Anambra gubernatorial primary elections have been declared unacceptable by the party members and major stakeholders following the recent discovery of election malpractice. According to reputable sources within the party, it has been discovered that Sen Andy Ubah, the presumed winner of the June 26 poll conspired with the governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma to hamper the free, fair and peaceful execution of the party primary elections.

Following the announcement of a landslide victory of the unpopular Sen Andy Ubah suspicions of foul play began to rise. A formal complaint was filed by other aspirants, and an immediate investigation was launched. It was then determined that Sen Andy Ubah, with the help of Governor Hope Uzodinma, had lobbied the members of the primaries committee to alter the results in his favour. The ongoing investigation suggests that the chairman of the committee, Dapo Abiodun (Ogun state governor), was reportedly bullied by Andy Ubah and Hope Uzodinma to tamper with the electoral process.

It was also gathered that no election was held in many wards around the state and there has been no singular evidence to prove otherwise. The hierarchy within the party was also discovered to be oblivious of the turnout of the elections. These findings beg the obvious question, how did the results come about?

A cross-examination of Anambrarians revealed that APC had already begun to gain grounds and earn the trust of Anambrarians through the works of aspirants like Hon Azuka Okwuosa, Chief Ben Etiaba and Godwin Okonkwo. The general opinion of Andy Ubah is a greedy politician who is out to siphon government funds. “If a candidate like Hon Azuka Okwuosa is declared winner, he would have had a lot more support, but Andy Ubah’s mysterious victory is quite shady,” one of the party’s supporters remarked.

Due to the inability of the party’s leadership to vouch for the validity of the posted results, party members and aspirants have called upon them to nullify the results. They stressed that the party should not support a skewed and biased outcome based on fraudulent elections. In order to fulfill the party’s initial intention of a flawless and honest process, a new committee should be constituted to conduct the primary election at a later date. In their belief, this will put the party back on track to winning the hearts of all Anambrarians.

Despite the fact that a new date for a new election is still to be set, party supporters have expressed satisfaction and gratitude for the leadership’s decision and stance against election rigging. They are, without a doubt, highly optimistic that a deserving candidate will emerge victorious from the new election.

Politician and Business man,  Ademola T. Ajibola Launches ATAjere, to Share 500,000 Naira Among Petty Traders

The ATA Movement, a socio-political platform led by the young and upwardly mobile entertainment consultant and serial entrepreneur, Ademola Titilopemi Ajibola, had concluded plans to commence her #ATAjere program, a market invasion created to alleviate and complement the economic development of market women across different markets of Ibadan.

ATA’JERE (which translates to SUCCESS IN TRADE) is one of the many programmed on the ATA AGENDA which Ademola projects. The first edition is set to give 50 market women and men, 10,000 naira cash support to add as business aids to boost whatever they sell.

This edition will launch at the popular APATA market of the Ibadan South West LGA on Saturday, July 3rd, 2021 and the train will move on a periodic basis to other markets within the Ibadan South West/North West Federal Constituency.

ATAjerey

For ATA as Ajibola is fondly called, “There is no better time to start this activation than now. Sometimes last year, I was a part of a charity project, THE MADE MEN, that stormed some markets and it breaks ones heart to see that some people’s whole tray of wares is less than 5,000 naira. That experience was an eye opener for me as to the pains people go through. 5,000 naira  like 10 dollars. How much profit does such person want to make to survive in this tough realities?”. These are some of the reasons why I told myself that whenever I can afford to push for it, I will do my best to support people within my community in my own small ways, to assist and that’s why this project was created”.

This has no political/tribal coloration to this segment of my agenda as I’m doing it solely as a commitment I’ve had in plans for people with or without any return. Earlier in June this year, I did a debate competition that had 20 students drawn from 10 secondary schools compete, with 2 students going home with Laptops, some getting Jamb Forms support, 2 students went home with 30,000 naira and 20,000 respectively, amongst others”. I do what I feel makes my society better and I’m hopeful I’d do more as God spread my wings. It’s time to act, remembering well that the government can’t do all”.

While many are strongly clamoring for ATA to play actively in the 2023 general elections, the Oke-Ado-born articulate speaker is yet to make an official declaration as to where he is headed, even though his works and personality are becoming more pronounced in the Ibadan.

JUST IN: OKWUOSA IS APC LUCKY STAR, ANAMBRA WILL REJOICE – PROPHET SOLOMON AMADI

“I am not comfortable with APC but if God has chosen Okwuosa for Anambra, who am I to object.” These were the exact words of Prophet Solomon Amadi, a renowned prophet and leader of the Life Transformation Ministries, in a press conference held on June 24, 2021. Speaking with the members of the Youth Nation, he attested to a series of visions he has had in respect to the ideal successor of the incumbent governor.

 

The events in the state, he claims, compelled him to conduct a supernatural investigation into God’s intention for Anambra. “I prayed God to show me his will for Anambra, the one who will turn Anambra into a true light of the nation, and Azuka Okwuosa keeps popping up,” he stated.

 

He also mentioned that, prior to his God-wards investigation, he had never heard of Azuka Okwuosa because he had personally opted not to get involved in politics. However, his revelation prompted him to conduct some study, and the findings corroborated his visions.

 

The Prophet stated that he has discovered Okwuosa to be a gentleman with a servant’s heart and a heart of love, which are attributes that a true leader should possess. He also asserted that Okwuosa’s rising popularity, which had eluded him for so long, will continue to grow into an overwhelming force that no other contender will be able to match.

 

On a broader scope, this is not the first time visions of Okwuosa are coming to light. Earlier in May, the Anglican Bishop of the Awka Diocese, His Lordship Most Rev. Chibuzo Ibezim made known his vision of Okwuosa’s impending victory. He credited him as a man who is committed to God’s mission, and he will carry out God’s purpose in Anambra.

 

Finally, Prophet Solomon urged Anambrarians and APC supporters to rally behind Hon Azuka Okwuosa, saying that he is the man God has selected to lead Anambra to a new level of development. The outcome of the APC primaries on June 26 will determine how far Prophet Solomon’s vision will be realized.
