Senator Babafemi Ojudu (Ekiti Central District) has organised seminars for graduating students of tertiary institutions, where they will be taught the basic skills needed to secure and retain employment.

The seminars begin today and will hold in three higher institutions in Ekiti State. They will be facilitated by the Fola Ogunsola Foundation.

The first seminar holds today at the Federal Polytechnic, Ado-Ekiti, at noon. Two hours later, the second one will hold at the Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD).

The third will hold tomorrow at the Crown Polytechnic in Odo, Ado-Ekiti, at 9am.

In a statement, Ojudu said one of the mandates of the Initiative of Babafemi Ojudu for Leadership Development (iBOLD) is to mentor youths and groom them to be self-reliant, responsible and competent wherever they find themselves.

He urged students of the three institutions to attend the seminars.

I didnt assault corps member   Back To Top

From: The Nation      Published on: Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Posted by: Sulaiman Salalwudeen, Ado-Ekiti in News

Ekiti State Commissioner for Youths and Sports Development Kayode Olaosebikan has denied beating up a National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member, Thompson Enobong, in Otun-Ekiti last Saturday.

Enobong was an Independent National Electoral Commissions (INECs) Registration Officer in Ward 2, Otun Ekiti.

At a press conference in Ado-Ekiti yesterday, Olaosebikan said he had a minor disagreement with Enobong but did not beat him up.

He said the matter was unduly politicised by the opposition.

The commissioner was questioned by the police yesterday on the incident.

Olaosebikan urged the NYSC authorities to warn corps members against getting involved in partisan politics.

He said: The corps member was shouting on top of his voice that a lady, who is the younger sister to my orderly, should not be registered on that day. The noise was embarrassing and I told him not to be hostile to the people. The boy (Enobong), who did not know I was a commissioner, pushed me and my people wanted to mob him, but I told them to leave him.

I even took him into a car that drove him to where he was supposed to work, as we later discovered that he was attached to another ward in the town. It was during the disagreement that I knew he was not supposed to work in that ward. He was not the presiding officer in that ward.

Later, I read on the social media that I beat him up and that he had been hospitalised, even though nothing of such happened. I owe it a duty to ensure the safety of every youth corps member as the Chairman of the NYSC Board in the state.

Ekiti residents protest power outage   Back To Top

From: The Nation      Published on: Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Posted by: Sulaiman Salawudeen, Ado-Ekiti in Featured, News

Youths in Ikere-Ekiti, Ekiti State, protested yesterday three months of power outage in the community.

Around 10am, they barricaded the only major road in the town, which links Ikere to Akure in Ondo State, causing a traffic gridlock.

Appeals by a commissioner and the towns Divisional Police Officer to the youths to open the road were ignored.

A woman, who did not want to be named, said: Since January, there has been power outage in Ikere and nobody knows when it will end. That is why the youths are protesting.

Mr. Salisu Olusola, said: The Benin Electricity Distribution Company said the town owed a huge amount as unpaid bills, out of which we paid N15 million, but electricity was not restored.

Another resident, who pleaded for anonymity, said: The N15 million was paid to the local government council, but the council did not remit it into the account of the Electricity Distribution Company. The company is not wrong to insist that the money should be paid before electricity is restored.

Police spokesman Victor Babayemi said: When we heard about the protest, we deployed our men there to prevent it from getting out of hands. The youths are protesting continuous power outage in the town. We are managing the situation. We are not arresting anyone for this as we believe the youths have a constitutional right to this, as long as they remain non-violent.

It was gathered that Ise-Ekiti and Emure-Ekiti have also had power outage for about three months.

Ekiti Guber: Consensus candidate fails to emerge in PDP   Back To Top

From: Vanguard      Published on: Tuesday, March 18, 2014

BY HENRY UMORU

ABUJAMOVES to get a consensus candidate as the standard bearer for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the June 21 Ekiti State governorship election, has failed. Therefore, all the aspirants will this Saturday go for primary election.

The inability of the 14 cleared aspirants to come up with a consensus candidate after a closed door meeting at the PDP presidential campaign office, Legacy House, Maitama, Abuja yesterday, forced the national leadership of the party to insist on the conduct of primary election.

The meeting which had most of the aspirants in attendance was presided over by the national chairman of the PDP, Dr. Adamu Muazu.
The cleared aspirants to participate are Obafemi Peter; Bejide Oluwadare; Caleb Olubolade; Adedayo Adeyeye; Ayodele Fayose; Adeyanju Bodunde; Ogundipe Modupe Margaret; Abiodun Aluko; Oladeji Omoyeni; Sen. Gbenga Aluko; Oluropo Ogunbolude; Omalara Adubiaro; Ajayi Ayodeji Eldad and Adewale Aribisala.

It was learnt that while most of the aspirants backed the consensus candidate arrangement as advised by President Goodluck Jonathan, former governor of the state and an aspirant, Mr. Ayo Fayose insisted on the conduct of primaries.

Speaking at the end of the meeting with the aspirants, PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh who disclosed that the partys national leadership told the aspirants that the party would only support the consensus arrangement if all the aspirants agreed among themselves, said that if a candidate refuses with the consensus arrangement, the party would have no choice than to organise a transparent, free and fair primaries so that the constitutional right of all aspirants are secured.

Metuh who disclosed that Ward congresses for the selection of its delegates for the primaries which was scheduled to hold last week would hold tomorrow, said: It is the desire of the PDP that we have a consensus candidate in Ekiti State with a proviso that it must be unanimous.

By chance if one or two persons disagree, we must respect the Constitution of the PDP by concluding the exercise.
We have sold forms and we will go for the election accordingly. We are in Abuja, we are not looking for governor of Abuja, we are looking for governor in Ekiti State and Ekiti people will participate in choosing their governor.

Ekiti PDP gov candidate emerges Saturday   Back To Top

From: Punch      Published on: Tuesday, March 18, 2014

by Olusola Fabiyi Leave

National Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party, Adamu MuAzu

The governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for the June 21 election in Ekiti State, will emerge on Saturday.

The national leadership of the party at its meeting in Abuja on Monday, fixed the date for the partys primary.

All the 14 aspirants who were cleared for the exercise are to take part in the primaries, just as the party has fixed Tuesday (today) for its ward congresses for the selection of delegates for the primary.

These were the decisions reached by the leadership of the PDP after a closed-door meeting with all the aspirants and some stakeholders of the party from Ekiti State after the attempts to make the aspirants to agree on a consensus arrangement failed.

It was gathered that while majority of the aspirants reportedly agreed on the consensus arrangement as muted by the President Goodluck Jonathan, who is also the National leader of the party, a former governor of the state, Mr. Ayo Fayose, was said to have insisted on primary for the best candidate to emerge for the election.

Speaking with journalists after the meeting of the National Working Committee of the party, its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, said the party would organise a primary for the aspirants if they could not totally agree on a consensus arrangement among themselves in line with the partys constitution.

He explained that the party would only support the consensus arrangement if all the aspirants agreed among themselves but once one or two disagreed, the party would have no option than to organise a transparent, free and fair primary for the aspirant to elect the partys flag-bearer.

He said in line with this position, the ward congresses for the selection of the partys delegates for the primary would hold tomorrow (Wednesday) in the state.

Ojudu writes Senate over injustice to retired officer   Back To Top

From: The Nation      Published on: Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Posted by: Our Reporter in News

Senator Babafemi Ojudu (Ekiti Central) has petitioned the Senate over the unjust treatment of one of his constituents, former Police Commissioner Emmanuel Oladipo Ayeni (rtd), by the police.

He said Ayeni was being punished by the police authorities for making critical comments about the force at his passing-out after 32 years of unblemished service.

Ayeni was queried and his retirement letter withheld by the police, so he could not process his benefits.

Ojudu said: Holding on to Ayenis retirement letter for over a year for no just cause smacks of wickedness against a committed officer, who spoke out against a system that has continued to disappoint Nigerians in the performance of its duties.

He said it was traditional for retiring officers to speak on issues plaguing the police and the nation at their pull-out parade.

Ojudu said he was ready to mobilise Nigerians to ensure the reversal of this blatant injustice, which is capable of demoralising men of sound judgment and good conscience from speaking the truth.

He said: Should the police get away with this act of injustice to an officer who gave 32 years of his life to the service without blemish, then it can be better imagined what can be done to men or women of lower rank.

The petition was received by Senate President David Mark and forwarded to the Senate Committee on Petitions and Ethics.

Call Ekiti PDP, LP to order, group urges police   Back To Top

From: The Nation      Published on: Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Posted by: Sulaiman Salawudeen in News

LP: we had no hand in violence

Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemis Campaign Organisation has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of reactivating violence in the state.

It urged well-meaning Nigerians, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies to be wary of the PDPs violent actions, which it said is informed by the fear of electoral defeat.

In a statement by its spokesman, Dimeji Daniels, the campaign organisation said: Confronted by the reality that the people of Ekiti State have rejected it, the PDP has activated its long-orchestrated series of violent acts against the peace-loving people.

It accused the PDP and its Labour Party (LP) extension of contracting mercenary voters from Kogi and Ondo states, adding that 18 of the mercenaries from Idanre in Ondo State were arrested by the police at the weekend.

The organisation said: The plan to get these impostors registered in Ekiti State did not pan out well, as Ekiti people resisted this gross and intentional violation of the Electoral Act. Last Sunday, some PDP hoodlums attempted to smuggle in mercenary voters at St. Lukes African Church Primary School Polling Unit, Ayede/Itaji Ward 10, but they were resisted.

This obviously angered PDP hoodlums at the polling unit, who later trailed Mr. Bolaji Matthew, one of the registered voters at the polling unit and the Supervisor for Education in Oye Local Government, to his home in Oloje, Oye Local Government, where they beat the daylight out of him. Matthew is still receiving treatment at a hospital.

An hour later, these hoodlums descended on the INEC office in Oye Local Government to cart away voter registration materials and Direct Data Capturing (DDC) machines.

If the PDP could exhibit this level of desperation and show of naked violence at this time, one can imagine what it is planning for the election on June 21. We are well aware that the PDP has been holding series of nocturnal meetings to perfect its violent acts. We are also aware of its boast that it would send fear down the spine of APC members in Ekiti State, as well as its plan to kidnap top officials of the state government and the All Progressives Congress (APC) and blame it on the insecurity in the country.

However, everyone knows Ekiti is peaceful, meaning that the PDPs plan would be dead on arrival. While we were not in government, we fought the PDP legally without resorting to self-help to retrieve our stolen mandate. We will continue on this path, but let it be known to all those beating the drums of war that the APC cannot be cowed and will resist their violent acts. We will make sure that the PDPs seven-and-a-half years of the locusts in Ekiti State are not relived. Ekiti people say NEVER AGAIN to the PDP! We shall no more see the Egyptians we saw between May 29, 2003 and October 15, 2010!

The organisation condemned a statement credited to an LP governorship aspirant, Mr. Opeyemi Bamidele, that the June 21 election is fight to finish.

It said: We condemn a statement credited to Bamidele yesterday. At a town hall meeting in Iyin-Ekiti, superintended by the Oluyin of Iyin-Ekiti, Oba Ademola Ajakaiye, where Bamidele was quoted to have said that the June 21 election is fight to finish and that he would not hesitate to mobilise thugs to Ekiti State from Mushin in Lagos State. This utterance is unbecoming of someone aspiring to lead a progressive state like Ekiti.

Indeed, some LP thugs loyal to Bamidele inflicted machete cuts on two APC members, Ojo Seyi and Busuyi Alake, during the distribution of permanent voter cards in Iyin-Ekiti. He indeed acted true to his threats before uttering them to the gathering of Iyin-Ekiti sons and daughters. This is barbaric, inhuman and desperate.

While the Kayode Fayemi Campaign Organisation commends the Police for arresting the mercenary voters from Idanre in Ondo State, we urge the force to call the PDP and LP to order. We equally call on well-meaning stakeholders to condemn these barbaric acts of the PDP and the Bamidele faction of the LP. When ambition becomes desperation, men of goodwill must not remain silent. We must jointly ensure that desperate politicians do not return Ekiti to the days of One Day, One Trouble.

Ekiti people have made up their minds to vote for Dr. John Kayode Fayemi. All these violent acts by the PDP and the LP will not win them a single vote in Ekiti. They have been rejected by the people before the election.

LP State Chairman Akin Omole denied the allegations, saying: If there is any party suspected to have perpetrated illegality in the registration, it was the APC.

Ekiti poll: PDP drops consensus option   Back To Top

From: The Nation      Published on: Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Posted by: Gbade Ogunwale, Abuja in News

Fixes primary for Saturday

The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has fixed Saturday for its primary election in Ekiti State, where the partys flag bearer for the June 21 poll will be elected.

The PDP leadership took the decision yesterday after a meeting with the 14 aspirants in Abuja, where the aspirants failed to agree on a consensus candidate.

It was learnt that one of the aspirants, former Governor Ayo Fayose, insisted on the conduct of a primary election.

Ward congresses for the selection of delegates for the primaries begins today.

Speaking with reporters after the meeting, PDP National Publicity Secretary Chief Olisa Metuh said the need for a primary arose because the aspirants could not agree on the consensus option.

Metuh said the party would support a consensus option only if all the aspirants agree, adding that the party would go ahead with the primary even if only one aspirant disagreed.

Scores count loses as rainstorm wreaks havoc in Ado-Ekiti   Back To Top

From: The Nation      Published on: Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Posted by: Sulaiman Salawudeen, Ado-Ekiti in Featured, News

Residents of Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, are counting their losses, following Sundays rainstorm, which blew off the roofs of many buildings.

From Ijigbo-Ajilosun to Adebayo, Olaoluwa, Basiri and Oke-Oriomi, the rainstorm wreaked havoc on residential buildings and schools.

Among the affected structures are the multi-purpose hall of the Ola-Oluwa Muslim Grammar School; the covered walkway of the Ile Abiye Hospital and electricity poles across the town.

Alhaja Sifau Musa, whose one storey building at Ayegbami Street around Olaoluwa was affected, said: I am tired of life. Around 5pm on Sunday, the wind started blowing and blew off the roof. This is the fourth time this is happening to me. Unfortunately, I am a widow and a motor accident rendered me immobile.

This is the fourth time this evil wind is blowing off my roof. Every time this happens, I spend over N65,000 on repairs. It happened in 2005, 2009 2011 and has happened again. I cannot afford to even feed myself, as I had an accident in 2004 and have not been working. My husband is dead and our children are not working.

The state government sympathised with the victims, assuring them that help is underway.

Deputy Governor Prof. Modupe Adelabu said the State Emergency Management Agency (EKSEMA) had been directed to compile a list of victims and properties destroyed by the rainstorm.

Mrs. Adelabu, who went round the town to assess the damage, expressed surprise at its magnitude.

She said there was little or nothing anybody or the government could do to prevent such a natural disaster, other than to ensure that structures are not built on the water ways.

She urged the people to build with standard materials and patronise building professionals.

The deputy governor urged contractors and bricklayers to involve civil engineers at the planning stage of buildings for quality assurance.

She said the government has directed EKSEMA officials to go round and compile a list of victims with a view to ascertaining the damage and fashion out ways of cushioning the effects.

Ekiti 2014: The dilemma of PDP   Back To Top

From: Nigerian Tribune      Published on: Monday, March 17, 2014

SAM NWAOKO writes on the clash of the programmes of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State with that of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the governorship election approaches and the dilemma it has caused many of the followers of the party in the state.

What is trending in Ekiti State now as the June 21 governorship approaches is the result of the screening the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) conducted on its aspirants in the election. The release of the result of the screening has created several kinds of reactions among the people of the state and outsiders, both in the state and beyond.

The social media has also been bubbling with all kinds of credible and far-fetched information on the screening itself and its result, as well as the aspirants involved.

The committee, led by Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, was said to have screened 18th aspirants that, believably, paid the required stipulated fees and the result of the work done by the has left the PDP with 14th aspirants. The successful aspirants, who are expected to slug it out in the coming days, for the governorship ticket of the PDP, are currently more in Abuja than in the state, the expected centre of action.

Most of the leaders of the party in Ekiti were in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory when the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) conducted the distribution of permanent voter cards for the prospective voters in the state in the weekend of March 7th and 9th.

That weekend, the national leadership of the PDP was screening its aspirants and the exercise left the leadership of the PDP in the state enough room to be in the state as the exercise went on. That caused some loud grumbling among many members of the party, who wondered how the exercises could run into each other.

However, the loud grumblings among the PDP faithful in the state became a shrill cry when it became clear to them that the leadership of the party had not taken the time-table of the INEC into consideration when it planned its own activities. This even became more pronounced when, on Monday, many of the leaders of the party and their followers were reported to have geared up for the ward congresses of the party in the 177 wards in the state. The congresses were to produce the delegates who would have been joined by the automatic delegates for the primaries earlier scheduled for last Saturday.

Their outrage, according to the members of the party was borneout of the fact that they would turn out be like those pursuing the proverbial two rats. They wondered how they would have their ward congresses on Wednesday with their attendant post-selection troubles.

They also wondered how the PDP in the state would handle the problems arising from the ward congresses; the governorship primaries a few days later and the expected squabbles that would follow all of them.

A source said: All these would be on while we are supposed to be mobilising our people who are eligible to go and register and also ensure that those who had registered got their permanent voter cards because they are all happening at the same time.

The PDP members had contended that the chairman of the party in the state, Mr Makanjuola Ogundipe, had written to the national leadership of the party to put these into consideration while planning the primaries. As a matter of fact, the concerned party members lamented that there was annoying humdrum in Ekiti State where we expect the activities to be concentrated as we approach the campaign and election period.

Their lamentations are further reinforced by the glaring fact that the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state has been working hard in all the corners of the state. The APC has deployed men and materials in all the wards in the state for proper mobilisation in all the necessary areas and the men are working very hard when the impact of their interactions are considered.

These are apart from the work the state governor, Dr. KayodeFayemi, has done in the state in the areas of infrastructural development and sundry areas captured in the eight-point agenda of his administration, which are also competently marketing the APC.

Of a fact, certain elements in the PDP are even expressing concern that the APC in the state has such an upper hand in the coming election that they in the PDP would need to take really hard, quick steps to catch up with their pace. A certain leader in the party contended that the state governor is a doctoral degree holder; the deputy is a professor and a woman and they have a lot to market themselves. So, we have to put these into consideration too as we sort the issue of a candidate out and also carve out a niche we can latch on to launch a credible campaign to sell our candidate.

However, these concerns seem to have reached the ears of the leadership of the PDP because on Tuesday, news came into the state from Abuja that the ward congresses of the party had been postponed by one week. The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh, said in a statement stated that the postponement was to allow party members to participate in the on-going continuous voter registration exercise and verification of voters by INEC. The postponement came as a relief to many members of the party but has remained a case for concern for some of them.

On Wednesday when the continuous voter registration exercise commenced in the state, not many of the aspirants were back in Ekiti for the mobilisation and this has created some form of dilemma for the members of the party.

One of the aspirants, Prince Adedayo Adeyeye, while speaking with newsmen in Ise-Ekiti on Wednesday, said he had been in Ekiti since the commencement of the distribution of permanent voter cards last weekend. He added that it was not healthy for the big wigs of the party to remain in Abuja at a time like this.

Adeyeye, however, contended that the aspirants that were not in the state were in the best position to explain their movements, plans and strategies. But his concern is not about who was in the state or not but on the need for the party to come up with a candidate that has the biggest support base in the party. The aspirant from the Ekiti South district reiterated the need for the party to look in the direction of the district for its candidate in the spirit of fairness and equity.

Some members of the PDP in Ekiti we are of the opinion that it was too early to conclude that the aspirants and other leaders of the party in the state were not going to be in the state for the continuous voter registration exercise that would end on March 17. For the PDP faithful, the postponement of the ward congresses might mean the postponement of the real internal governorship fight, the outcome of which would give a direction to PDPs fortunes in the election.

As things stand today in the party, it is the contention of many that the PDP is running behind schedule in the scheme of the governorship election.

It is also the fear of many that whoever emerges the candidate would make or mar the contest for the party, while many others are also holding their breath for what would happen after the new date of March 22 that the primaries would now hold. All these are creating fears in the minds of the party members.

Some are harbouring the opinion that the inability of the party to smoothen its road to the election by now would mean that other parties could reap the benefits of the lateness.

Some observers say time is ticking for the PDP and the other political parties but the others are ahead, even though this does not mean victory for them yet.

A positive point so far is that there was a screening of the aspirants without any noisy ripple of the result at home in Ekiti. But whoever emerges from among Ambassador Dare Bejide, Prince Adeyeye, Senator Gbenga Aluko, Chief Abiodun Aluko, Chief Bisi Omoyeni, Chief Ropo Ogunbolude (all from the South Senatorial district); former Governor Ayo Fayose, Navy Captain Caleb Olubolade, Mr Bodunde Adeyanju (from the Central); Honourable Wale Aribisala, Mr Deji Ajayi (from the North) and the Dr (Mrs) Abibat Adubiaro and Mrs Modupe Ogundipe (the only female aspirants) have a huge task ahead, in all consideration.
