‘Stop making unfounded allegations against teachers’



From Osagie Otabor, Akure

The Ondo State chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools’ of Nigeria (ASUSS) has cautioned the Senior Special Assistant on Special Duties to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, Dr. Doyin Odebowale, to desist from making unfounded allegation against teachers.

It said it was unacceptable and unthinkable for any political appointee to make allegations against teachers without any proof.

Odebowale had told reporters in Akure that his office received reports that teachers were engaging pupils to do domestic chores in their homes and on farms on the guise of teaching the pupils agricultural practical.

But ASSUS challenged Odebowale to mention names and schools where teachers were using pupils for home chores and farm work.

The state Chairman of ASUSS, Comrade Tajudeen Balogun, urged Governor Akeredolu to call Odebowale to order and stop dragging names of hard working teachers in the mud.

Former IGP Tafa Balogun appeals to policemen to resume duty



Former inspector general of police (IGP), Tafa Balogun, has appealed to police officers to return to their duty posts.

#EndSARS_ Former IGP Tafa Balogun appeals to policemen to resume duty

In the fallout of the nationwide #EndSARS protest, many police stations were razed and officers attacked by hoodlums.

Police officers across the country have not fully returned to work as they complain that their morale to work has dropped.

Tafa Balogun has now urged officers to forge ahead because their concerns are currently being handled by police authorities and the federal government.

“I urge all members of the Nigeria Police Force in our country to return to their duty posts and continue to provide the much needed security to our dear country, Nigeria; not minding the recent brutal attacks, arson, and acts of intimidation against the Police.

The Nigeria Police remain the first line of Internal Security as guaranteed by the Nigerian Constitution. Therefore, it behooves all and sundry not to betray the spirit of the Constitution.

I sincerely appeal and urge all my brothers and sisters in the Police Force to put the past behind us as the Federal and State Governments, as well as the police authorities, are positively and aggressively addressing the unprecedented provocative attacks on the police institution. We all love you.

Please, once again, I appeal to all of you to return to duty without further delay.”his statement read

‘Opposition to APC membership registration will produce surrogate leaders’



By Jide Orintunsin, Abuja and Simon Utebor, Yenagoa

  • Northwest chairmen back committee on register
  • Bayelsa faction faults panel’s reconciliation comment

Director General of Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF), Salihu Moh’d Lukmam, has said those who oppose the proposed membership registration and update of the register of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) are calling for the emergence of surrogate leadership.

He also faulted those who claimed that the Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the party lacks the power to conduct the proposed registration.

The forum’s DG argued that it would be counter-productive to have a National Convention without a verifiable party register.

Some party members and stakeholders are against the proposed registration, saying the caretaker committee lacked the mandate to conduct the exercise.

The opposition to the exercise threatened to take legal action should the committee conduct the membership verification, registration and register update.

Lukman, who was reacting to the tension being generated by the proposed exercise, announced the party’s stand in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.

“When was the last time anybody was registered as APC member in any part of the country? When was the last time any ward in the country transmitted to any local government secretariat and/or local government transmitted any copy to national secretariat? Yet, our party’s constitution provides that membership records should be updated every six months.”

The Northwest state chairmen backed the update of the party’s register.

A statement yesterday in Abuja by the Northwest APC State Chairmen’s Forum, Isa Sadiq Acida, reads: “We, the Northwestern States All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairmen, comprising Sokoto, Kebbi, Zamfara, Katsina, Jigawa, Kano and Kaduna states, wish to express our unflinching support and confidence in the APC National Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), led by Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State.

“We acknowledge and commend the committee’s efforts at repositioning the party…”

Also, a faction of the APC in Bayelsa State, led by Mr. Ebierien Itubor, has debunked the claim by the Buni-led committee that the factions in Bayelsa and a few other states have been reconciled.

In a statement yesterday, Itubor said: “We are not surprised by the claims being made by Yekini Nabena. Nabena is a stooge of Chief Timipre Sylva. It should be known by the National Caretaker Committee that there was never a time any reconciliation meeting was called and the status of the party is that the contentious issues have not been resolved.

“Or, is it that when two or three persons sit in Abuja to discuss party affairs over champagne, the reconciliations have been concluded? The Bayelsa APC is fragmented along factions and these factions are calling on the …reconciliation committee and the Governor Buni-led committee not to allow Sylva-led faction to hoodwink them into false claims and instigate huge failure for the party.”
