The federal government has admonished fifth columnists and naysayers to stop spewing negative and false narratives around boko haram members who are surrendering in droves in the north-east.

The minister of information and culture, alhaji lai mohammed gave the admonition in an interview with newsmen in washington, describing as false and demoralizing the claim in certain quarters that the surrendered insurgents would be recruited into the nigerian military.

Mohammed who also berated those who were alleging that the surrendered insurgents were not actual boko haram fighters and if they were, they should be shot rather than granted amnesty, therefore noted that rather than changing the narratives, the federal government and the military should be respectfully commended for their resourcefulness and doggedness respectively in the fight against insurgency.

Kogi/2023 guber

Kogi west elders, operating under the aegis of kogi west elders’ forum have called for 30 years political imbalance to be corrected when the opportunity presents itself in november, 2023.

The chairman of the forum which is a think-tank for western senatorial district, gen. David jemibewon retired made the call while speaking at a press conference in abuja, noting that there should be consolidation as the western district of the state has been cooperating with eastern and central districts that have produced governors in the past.

Jemibewon lamented that in kogi state, which their zone is a major component, it has never produced a governor in the last 30 years of its creation, insisting that the western district would not accept deputy governor in 2023 when governor yahaya bello would have finished his second tenure.

He further noted that everything must be done to address the prevailing political imbalance in kogi state between the three senatorial districts of kogi east, kogi central and kogi west and its consequence on the west senatorial district’s political future.

Omokri/grazing

Former aide to former nigeria president, goodluck jonathan, reno omokri has urged southern governors to start arming their state police.

Omokri who gave the charge on his social media platform frowned at the review of grazing reserves in 25 states by president muhammadu buhari.

The former presidential aide however appealed to the southern governors to start arming their state police in exactly the same way kano armed hisbah, noting that whatever law empowered hisbah should also allow southern governors to establish their own version.

It would be recalled that president buhari had approved recommendations of the committee which reviewed 368 grazing sites in nigeria as it was said that the reserves cut across 25 states would determine the levels of encroachment as well monitor stakeholder engagements and sensitization.

Following the current security crisis rocking plateau state, the benue state government has evacuated its indigenes studying in jos.

In a statement issued by chief press secretary to governor samuel ortom, terver akase, the students were successfully and safely taken to makurdi, the benue state capital following his principal’s directive.

According to reports, it was said that paul okoye is currently on a press tour and anita has moved to the united states where she is working on her master’s degree as a graduate student.
