Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom, has said that the suspension of Ruga settlements plan by the Federal government is victory for all peace-loving Nigerians.

The governor who stated this in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, posited that the rejection of the Ruga settlement model was not personal but rather a struggle by the people of the country against impunity and injustice.

“Governor Ortom commends President Muhammadu Buhari for heeding the call of the people for the suspension of the Ruga settlement patterns.

“He says the decision to suspend the Ruga programme shows that President Buhari has heard the voices of the majority of Nigerians on the matter.

The governor while citing the Bible Book of John 8: 32: “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free,” maintained that truth has prevailed on the Ruga issue.

He, however, enjoined the Federal government to take a step further to encourage pastoralists and other livestock owners to embrace ranching as the best model of animal husbandry. (The Sun)

Robbery In UAE: Memo To Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa -Peter Ekekwe |RN

Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Senior Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora

The Senior Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Mrs Dabiri-Erewa caused a serious controversy making public the names of Nigerians of Igbo extraction, who allegedly robbed a Bureau de Change in United Arab Emirates. Many Nigerians believed that it was done out of tribal hatred than working to name and shame, if not why was the same woman angry about another Nigerian, of Yoruba extraction who was executed today in Saudi Arabia for drug trafficking, without calling her name out.

So, this memo was made by the writer to remind her of many other criminals of Nigerian extraction, who were not isolated for naming and shaming, rather their names were kept secret by Mrs Dabiri-Erewa.

Below is the memo:

By Peter Ekekwe

 

Dear Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa,

Mine is not a very long letter. Just to commend you for the “passion” that you bring to your work.

I believe like you, that when we name and shame the bad eggs tarnishing the image of our dear Nigeria, abroad, it will deter others from a life of crime, ABROAD.

It is in this light that I appreciate your publishing the names of the 5 robbers in UAE. You gave their names as Chimmuanya Emmanuel Ozo, Benjamin Nwachukwu Ajah, Kingsley Ikenna Ngoka, Tochukwu Leonard Alusi and Chile Micah Ndumodu (Ndunagu?)
Like you rightly pointed out “these five boys are a disgrace to this country and an embarrassment “.

Unfortunately Mrs Dabiri, you simply referred to the woman executed for drugs as “A Nigerian woman “. I believe you were in a hurry to address this very pressing national issue, that you couldn’t wait to get her name.

You also in the same vein failed to inform Nigerians of the names of the other Nigerians already executed for drugs and those on death row for the same drug crimes.

While you and your team are busy unravelling the name of the “Nigerian woman executed for drugs”, permit me to give the names of those already executed and those on death row. Am sure you will agree with me that all hands must be on deck to save the image of our nation.

THOSE EXECUTED FOR DRUGS IN SAUDI ARABIA

1. Yusuf Yekini Ajiboye
2. Adebayo Adeniyi
3. Mohammed Abubakar
4. Mohammed Issa
5. Ibrahim Ciroma
6. Biola Ologunro

THOSE ON DEATH ROW FOR DRUGS IN SAUDI ARABIA

1. Idris Adepoju
2. Abdulrimi Ajibola
3. Jimoh Lawal
4. Tunde Ibraheem
5. Amode Sulaman
6. Hafis Amosun
7. Aliu Mohammed
8. Babatunde
9. Abdulrasaq Lawal
10. Yekini
11. Abubakar
12. Kawu Muhammed
13. Madinah Yahaya
14. Awalu Muhammed
15. Kafilat Oljide
16. Ayisa
17. Abdulraman Mu’azu,
18. Abdulraman Durojaye
19. Abubakar Usman
20. Sunny

I hope I have saved you time that you can channel towards other issues.

Thank you for all your services to our beloved country.

N/B
Forgive me for missing the “Honourable’ in writing your name.

Mr. Peter Ekekwe
