Plateau elders under the aegis of People Democratic Party (PDP), Elders Forum, Plateau Central Senatorial District, on Thursday, backed a former Minister of Defence , Theophilus Danjuma , on his call on Nigerians to defend themselves in the face of killings across the country. The elders gave their support to the call in a press conference held in Jos, the Plateau State capital. While saying Danjuma did not ask people to take up arms, the elders explained that the former Chief of Army Staff only said people should protect themselves. In a lengthy text that faulted the town hall meeting held at the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Jos, the PDP elders said the town hall meeting which was suppose to address the increasing rate of insecurity in the State was stage managed to give the President an impression that all is well in Plateau. The text read by the chairman of the group Mr. John Mankilik, noted that the President Muhammadu Buhari lead government has done nothing to address the killings that has been going on in the country especially the north-central and on the Plateau. Mankilik said that if nothing is done the Fulani herdsmen will wipe them out from their own home land. He said, “of course, you know that self -preservation is the first law of nature: “you can’t just wait in your house and allow someone to come and kill you without resisting the person, but you don’t necessarily need to have arms”. The elders also berates Senator Joshua Dariye representing Plateau North Central at the National Assembly and Jethro Akun, a former deputy governor in the State, saying that their actions at the town hall meeting was shameful as they fail to tell the President the unabated killings that has been going on even in their constituency. “The elders also noted with grave concern the shoddy and shameful role played by the supposed illustrious sons of Plateau State who were spokespersons in the town hall meeting. “Chief Jethro Akun and Sen. Dariye for instance were amongst the key spokesperson, they made speeches that did not address issues of the moment and their non display of statesmanship has become very worrisome. “They have endangered the dignity and integrity of the Plateau Central Senatorial District: Chief Akun sadly and shockingly declared a clean bill of

The war against corruption in the country took a new twist on Friday as the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and major opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) threw tantrums over alleged looters of public funds. The PDP had started the row when its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a reaction had asked Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to either name those accused of being corrupt or keep quiet. Ologbondiyan said this after Osinbajo vowed not to stop talking about the alleged corruption under former President Goodluck Jonathan. The PDP had asked the ruling APC to stop accusing the PDP of looting the nation’s economy as former public office holders linked with sleaze are been harboured by the Buhari-led APC government. The party said it is high time the APC stop the blame game when it is obvious that former members of the PDP accused of corruption have found safe haven in the APC, a party hypocritically fighting corruption. The PDP said, ” While we restate our challenge to the Presidency to name any individual in the repositioned PDP indicted for looting public fund, we make bold to state that in President Buhari’s cabinet are former APC governors indicted by their states for looting funds belonging to the people, bulk of which were used to finance the President’s 2015 campaign. “We also have the list of prominent individuals, who were indicted of looting but have since crossed over to the APC where they are now provided cover by the Buhari administration.” But the Federal Government has responded to the challenge of the PDP, which dared it to name its members who are “looters”. At a press conference in Lagos on Friday, the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the identities of “looters” were unveiled as a result of the challenge of PDP. According to him, the list is just a tip of the iceberg, saying that more names will be made available in due course. On the list are the names of the PDP Chairman, Mr Uche Secondus, former spokesman of the PDP? Olisa Metuh and a former aide of former President Goodluck Jonathan. Mohammed said, “The PDP has challenged us to name the looters under their watch. They said they did not loot the treasury.

A former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ibrahim Mantu, has revealed how he helped his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to win elections in the past. Senator Mantu, who was elected on the platform of the PDP, ‘confessed the truth’ during a programme monitored in his interview on Hard Copy, a Channels Television programme on Friday. Asked about how he helped to rig elections, the self-acclaimed ‘born again’ politician said, “I don’t have to go and change election (results) but when you provide money, you give money to INEC boys that if they see any chance they should favour you, you provide money to the security (personnel); I tell you it’s not necessarily when I am contesting election but when my party sponsors a candidate, I will like that candidate to win election.” The former Deputy Senate President, who pronounced himself as a born-again politician in 2017, disclosed that he helped to rig elections for the PDP by providing financial inducements to officials involved in the conduct of the polls. He admitted to having bribed electoral and security officials, even agents of other political parties in order not to raise any objection to the outcomes of the elections. Ahead of the forthcoming general polls, Senator Mantu, however, believes Nigeria can get a free and fair election if people are born again like him and refuse to engage in electoral malpractice. He further urged Nigerians to ensure they voted wisely in 2019 and support leaders who would make the welfare of the people a top priority of their administration. Mantua said, “I am tired of leaving in poverty in the midst of plenty and I believe that we have the resources that people can live a decent life without being beggars to those who have. “So we need good governance and good governance can only be provided by good people; good people who are truly repentant, who are concerned about the well-being of the people.”

Goodluck Jonathan, former Nigeria president, on Friday encouraged Nigerians not to give up on the country despite its present challenges. In an Easter message posted on his official Facebook page, Jonathan said he still expects Nigeria to overcome its challenges no matter what evil forces may do. “Easter is a time when we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, who died for the sin of the world. In this season where we mark renaissance, I believe and expect Nigeria to rise and overcome her national challenges because our shared experiences are bringing us to the conclusion that no matter what the forces of evil can do, we as Nigerians, united in doing good, can and will prevail. “I urge all Nigerians, even if we feel that we are not in a position to do much to help Nigeria to overcome, let us at least believe that she will overcome. That is a lot. That is a lot. Happy Easter,” he wrote.
