Jonathan, last president of amalgamated Nigeria. – Efik Frathernity

 

A socio-political group – Efik Eburutu Royal Fraternity Forum, has said that President Goo

Jonathan Goodluck

Jonathan Goodluck

dluck Jonathan would be the last president of Nigeria particularly with the determination of most ethnic nationality in the country to go their different ways soon.
Speaking to our reporter in Calabar, High Chief Eyo Bassey Eyo-Cobham, Chairman of the group, said the Efiks, his race, was out for a sovereign state, adding “the Nigerian state had come to its dead end as each nation is going its different way.
“We stand by our previous position that we do not want to belong to Nigeria again. Based on the amalgamation treaty which stipulated that we could stay together for 100 years, the geographical entity called Nigeria has ceased to exist since January this year. The forced marriage has been terminated and Jonathan is the last President of the Amalgamated Nigeria.”
Eyo-Cobham said his people were poised to take its case to the United Nations, since, according to him, there are provisions in UN Charter for self determination, adding “this we shall pursue with vigour shortly after concluding our ongoing consultation phase.”
He also alleged glaring marginalization against the Efiks, explaining, “the way the Efiks in both Cross River and Akwa Ibom are marginalized and treated as beast of burdens, particularly under President Goodluck Jonathan’s stewardship, are indication Jonathan has no business whatsoever with the us.”
“Voting Jonathan again in 2015 is to continue and consolidate federal government marginalization of Efik race. There is no single infrastructure that the Efiks can boast of in all the ten local government area where our people are.
The Calabar – Itu high way has become death trap. The Calabar- Ikang road leading to Bakassi has completely collapsed. The Tinapa business resort is not working because the federal government does not want to work.
“The Calabar Port, which should have been benefiting economically to our people, is not functional because the federal government deliberately refuses to dredge the Calabar waterway.
“Jonathan is constructing the second Niger Bridge for the South East people. There are many smooth dual carriage ways in the North and South West. Let the President point out one single outstanding project he has done in Efik land in particular and South South in general. We do not know what has become of the East-West road.
“Since the criminal ceding of Bakassi, what succor has Jonathan given to our people? Bakassi peninsular, which was an integral part of Efik Eburutu kingdom, as shown in all available records, was secretly and heartlessly expunged from Nigeria’s map and handed over to Cameroon without the consent and knowledge of the owners – Kings and Chiefs of the Efiks
“Let us ask ourselves, why has the President not paid a single visit to Cross River since his electioneering campaign of 2011? He has visited some states for up to four times, but here, no way. I know he is waiting for next year to come and bamboozle us. We shall not vote for him,” Chief Eyo said as a matter of finality.
On the just concluded National Conference, the group said, “we actually expected a sovereign national conference and not an advisory body to the President.” It condemned the reports of the conference for not harping on referendum to solve Nigeria’s many problems, describing the reports as “body of confusion.”
Cobham therefore called on President Jonathan to follow what the defunct Soviet Union did by diplomatically allowing each nation-state to go their separate way peacefully

Governor Akpabio, Please, Pay Primary School Teachers Their Entitlements

By Inibehe Effiong

Can you believe that up to today 17 August, 2014 the “uncommon transformation” governor of Akwa Ibom State is yet to pay primary school teachers in the state their July salary? Primary school teachers in the state who retired since 1991 till date have not received their gratuity.

This is happening in a state that is currently receiving the highest revenue from the federation account, a state where hundreds on millions of naira are being dissipated on a daily basis on frivolities. All the nauseating noises about free and compulsory education in the state is just a propaganda. What is the quality of the so-called free and compulsory education? How are teachers in the state faring? It is a fraud.

The last time I complained about late payment of salary to primary school teachers in the state, one of the governor’s media aide, Usoro Usoro, unfriend me on Facebook. If they like let them send police or SSS after me this time, it will not deter me from exposing the failings and atrocities of the Godswill Akpabio administration. The amount that the governor is using to maintain his private jet and retain the services of four pilots as I am told may be close to the salaries of these oppressed teachers.

Given that the governor himself is the son of a late primary school teacher, one would have expected Akpabio to pay serious attention to the welfare of primary school teachers in the state and resolve the perennial disadvantages besetting primary school teachers in the state .

Governance is suffering in the state because of dirty politicking. The governor is fighting desperately to install a stooge as successor and go to the Senate to hid when the masses are suffering and smiling.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Islamist terror group abducted 97 people last week, security sources say
  • Chadian security forces stopped a convoy along Lake Chad
  • 85 of the hostages in the convoy were rescued, authorities said
 

Kano, Nigeria (CNN) — Chadian troops have rescued 85 Nigerianskidnapped last week by the Islamist terror group Boko Haram, security and human rights sources in Nigeria said Saturday.

Dozens of Boko Haram insurgents stormed the Doron Baga fishing and farming village on the shores of Lake Chad late Sunday through Monday and took away 97 young men and boys plus several women, residents said. The raiders killed 28 residents and burned scores of homes, according to residents.

The hostages were loaded onto motorboats and ferried into neighboring Chad, with residents saying they feared the hostages would be forcefully conscripted as foot soldiers.

Chadian security officials reported intercepting a convoy of buses carrying 85 Nigerians” believed to have been kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists from Baga,” a Nigerian security source said.

“The convoy being led by six Boko Haram gunmen was stopped on the Chadian part of the border along Lake Chad for routine checks and the huge number in the convoy raised suspicion,” said the source, who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak on the issue.

An official of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in Maiduguri confirmed the rescue of the 63 male and 22 female hostages.

The source, who asked that his name not be used, said more than 30 hostages were still being held by Boko Haram. He said their captors sped off with them in motorboats when they spotted the convoy being questioned by Chadian soldiers.

Boko Haram has been waging a five-year armed insurgency to create an Islamic state in northern Nigeria. The group has carried out series of abductions, including the April kidnapping of more than 200 schoolgirls from a boarding school in the town of Chibok.

Boko Haram uses its hostages as conscripts and sex slaves, according to authorities. They say Boko Haram has killed more than 12,000 people and displaced more than half a million residents.

B-r-e-a-k-i-n-g News: PETER OBI HAS RESIGN as APGA BoT CHAIRMAN and LEADER, SET TO JOIN HIS CRIMINAL COLLEAGUES IN PDP Party

Immediate past Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has resigned as Chairman of the Board of Trustees (BoT) and National Leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), a source close to him told News Express.

“Peter Obi has resigned,” APGA chieftain Stanley Chira told News Express minutes ago.

He did not give details.

News Express is making efforts to reach Peter Obi to throw more light on the issue.

Widely acknowledged as the man who kept APGA alive over the past decade, Mr. Obi had recently been denied appointment as a minister by President Goodluck Jonathan because he refused to defect from APGA to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The two-term governor had penultimate Friday in Awka-Etiti, Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra State, lamented that the failure by APGA to ratify the positions has made it impossible for him to carry out the duties expected of him.

The Sun hit by criticism after ‘Satan boy’ article.

Outrage greets tabloid’s front-page story that shows pictures and names infant with apparent emblem of Lucifer on his chest

 

The Sun Front Page - 29/7/14

Pictures of a half-naked four-year-old boy with a “mark of the devil” birthmark on his chest were published by the Sun on its front page, prompting MPs to complain the article was irresponsible, embarrassing and damaging to the child.

Conservative MP Sarah Wollaston told the Guardian that she would refer the story to the Press Complaints Commission, arguing it was wrong to publish unpixellated images of the boy, who the tabloid also chose to name.

Wollaston said:”It is a completely outrageous headline, and to link that with an identifiable picture of a child is wholly inappropriate on every level. This is absolutely not lighthearted. What possible justification can there be for including this child’s face, or for saying this child is marked by the devil? It is the most irresponsible piece of journalism I have seen for a long time.”

The Sun published the story under the headline “Boy, 4, has mark of devil”. Its editor, David Dinsmore, was on duty and is understood to have taken the decision to press ahead with the story.

The child’s mother is quoted saying: “Just looking at it made me shake, thinking something unnatural had visited my boy. Something or someone made the sign on him but we just can’t explain how.”

Tom Watson, a Labour MP and key adversary of the Rupert Murdoch-owned paper during the Commons inquiry into phone hacking, tweeted: “Tomorrow’s sun headline is “Boy, 4 has mark of the devil”. Do you ever get embarrassed @rupertmurdoch? Please sort it out.”

Other Twitter users expressed outrage. Some speculated the mark had been caused by a hairdryer burn.

A M Dewhurst@scode83 wrote “The front page of The Sun has a story about a 4 year old boy supposedly having the mark of Satan. This is a mainstream newspaper people,” while @sonofspeke tweeted: “The Sun soars away into the 17th century “Boy has Satan’s Mark”.

User @angledweb said: “The Sun is literally demonising a child on its front page. Surely that’s abuse.”A spokesman for the Sun said the story was provided by the parents, who had already publicised the pictures and story on Facebook. “We sought to treat it in a lighthearted fashion, highlighting the apparently fanciful link to the occult,” he added.

The paper did not comment when asked whether or not the child’s parents were paid. The spokesman’s statement said instead: “We did not encourage the parents to embellish or expand the story; it came to us, and had already been the subject of discussion [raised by the parents] on social media. It’s also worth noting that no concerns were expressed about the child’s welfare.

“An unusual mark appears, the mother gets it checked out by a doctor who confirms there is no medical reason why it should be there, and discharges her. Social workers are not involved.”

The story said the mark appeared on 23 May and had gone by 16 June.

Dr Evan Harris, a member of the campaign group Hacked Off, said that the editor’s code clearly stated that consent must be obtained before a child’s picture was used.

But Harris added: “The boy has a right to privacy and not to be bullied at school and, even though the parents have consented which gives the Sun legal cover, it is unethical to trample on those privacy rights. The Sun could have pixellated the boy’s face and not provided the surname and still run the non-story.”
