9  Forum / Politics / Gov. Oshiomole Badly Injured, Rushed To Secret London Hospital on: 31-12-2013 11:21AM

Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, is currently battling for survival after a horrible auto crash which his aides noted that is not serious.

Some sources within Government House claim that the governor was flown to London to get treatment in an undisclosed hospital.

According to the reliable sources, contrary to the facts stated by his media aide, Kassim Afegbua, that all was well with the governor; in reality he sustained serious injuries on his head as well as pains in his heart.

It has been gathered that Mr. Oshiomhole was first attended to in the government house by his doctor of physiotherapist and medical doctor, but he never responded well to immediate treatment, hence he was promptly flown out in secret.

Journalists have been making frantic effort to get the true story after it was broken exclusively yesterday by a London based media,, but they have made no headway.

A source who spoke to the Paradigm correspondents queried why the government is scared of showing the world the pictures of the car which carried the governor on that fateful day if the car was not badly hit.

When The Paradigm contacted another official source within the government house, it said the governor was hurriedly flown to the United State in a chartered air ambulance. However, the source preferred to remain anonymous.

Governor Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole survived a motor accident at Ewu Village along the ever busy Benin-Auchi road in Edo State at about 9.45am Saturday, 28th December, 2013 on his way back to Benin City from his Iyamho Village. The incident occurred at about 9.45am at Ewu, in Edo Central Senatorial District, when a Peugeot J5 Bus filled with tomatoes and plantains apparently lost control and rammed into the Governor’s Flag Car from the opposite direction before swerving into a road side ditch.
Three vehicles in the Governor’s convoy were in front of the Governor’s Flag Car and had passed the Peugeot J5 Bus before it [J5 Bus] had direct impact with the Governor’s Car which had the Governor, his Aide-De-Camp [ADC] and his Driver as occupants. The Governor’s Car was badly affected but no injuries were sustained by both occupants of the Peugeot J5 Bus and that of the Governor’s.
The Peugeot J5 Bus was following a truck that was descending the Ewu Slope when it suddenly veered off into the Governor’s lane from the opposite direction and directly impacted on the Governor’s vehicle, apparently because of brake failure. The good story is that nobody sustained injuries in both vehicles. The Comrade Governor is hale and hearty, his ADC and other occupants of the Peugeot J5 are also in good condition.
The incident has been reported to the Divisional Police Station at Ewu for further investigation. This is to assure all good people of Edo State that there is no cause for alarm. Their loving Comrade Governor is fine, hale and hearty as well as other occupants of the other affected vehicle. The Comrade Governor is wishing everyone a prosperous new year ahead.

14  Forum / Politics / Obasanjo Embraces APC -see Photo on: 22-12-2013 05:36AM

 Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Saturday openly threw his weight behind the All Progressives Congress when some national leaders and governors of the APC visited him, in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
A Punch correspondent gathered that the APC leaders at the meeting solicited Obasanjo’s support for the party in the forthcoming elections.

The visitors started arriving at Obasanjo’s Hilltop Mansion around 5:22pm. A former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, led  APC leaders, including the party’s Interim National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande; former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari; former speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Masari; former Borno State governor, Senator Ali Modu-Sheriff; Senator Osita Isunazor; Senator Bukola Saraki; Mr. Lai Mohammed to the  meeting.
Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State came to the former president’s house in company with the former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commissioin, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu; the former minister of aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode and others in a convoy of three black jeeps.
Other APC governors at the meeting included Rochas Okorocha (Imo), Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun), Abdulfattah Ahmed (Kwara), Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers), Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano) and Senator Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo).
The Chairman of the New PDP, Kawu Baraje led some of his members and the former Kaduna State Chairman,  Yero Makama, to the meeting.
Presenting the party chieftains and the APC governors to Obasanjo during the opening of the meeting, Akande said the party was in support of the former president’s 18-page letter to President Goodluck Jonathan.
The APC National Leader, Tinubu who alluded to Obasanjo’s contribution to the building of the Nigerian nation, lamented that the country was divided more than ever.
Apparently referring to Obasanjo’s recent letter to Jonathan, he enjoined the former president not to shy away from speaking the truth.
Tinubu added that the APC had resolved to rescue Nigeria, appealing to Obasanjo to lead the mission.
“You’ve come out of tribulation and held the highest position in this country. We are here because of your courage. Nobody can say he has information more than you. You have surmounted a number of crises. Nigeria is divided more than before; to realise stable Nigeria, we want to encourage you to continue to speak the truth. We’re resolved and determined to rescue Nigeria. We want you as navigator,” he said.
Responding, Obasanjo, who said he remained a card-carrying member of the ruling PDP, described himself as an “incurable optimist” totally committed to Nigeria’s well-being.
He vowed that nothing would distract him from his commitment to the Nigerian nation.
Obasanjo also enjoined the opposition party to play a constructive politics “without bitterness”
The former president said, “I am a card carrying member of the PDP but the politics I play traverses Nigeria, Africa and world in that order. I am a democrat and one of the essential ingredients of democracy is opposition. A democracy that has no opposition built into it is not democracy.
“As an opposition, you are enhancing democracy.  You are at home,  you are welcome. I will just appeal that the politics you play is politics without rancour, without bitterness, with decency, that has Nigeria at heart. I am an incurable optimist about Nigeria, I am totally committed to Nigeria and nothing  will divert me from that commitment.”
At the end of their two-hour meeting, Tinubu, in a chat with newsmen, denied that the APC had come to woo the former president.
He said, “The meeting was not to woo him but to tap from his wealth of political experience.”
One of those present at the meeting, Fani-Kayode told SUNDAY PUNCH  that Obasanjo embraced the APC at the meeting. He said, “The ex-president told us that APC has taken the first step in the right direction towards making Nigeria great. It was an excellent meeting.”
Efforts to get the reaction of the PDP and the presidency were futile on Saturday as the spokesmen of the party and presidency could not be reached. Their phones were switched off.

18  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Obasanjo Blasts Vanguard: “You’re Bloody Idiots” Iyabo Will Finish You In Court on: 19-12-2013 06:22AM

President Olusegun Obasanjo was very furious when approached by Vanguard on Wednesday over the letter that is purportedly written by his daughter, Iyabo, to him as he hurled invectives at the newspaper's man called him on the phone. The exchange between Vanguard and Chief Obasanjo ran thus:

Vanguard: Sir, we tried reaching you all through yesterday, to no avail, over the letter written by your daughter, Iyabo, to you.

Chief Obasanjo: You are a bloody idiot, you have published the paper and you are now looking for me, you are an idiot, don’t call me again. When Iyabo finishes you in court…. (hangs up).

But why did Iyabo "wrote such a wicked letter" to her dad?

According to Vanguard, Senator Iyabo Obasanjo has confirmed to them that she indeed wrote the letter and she said her father's associates and friends should take it as her own way of getting back to him. Very sad!

She reacted against the background of mixed reactions from elders and notable politicians on the import of the letter which she said is her last communication with her father.
19  Forum / Politics / Letter: Pro-Jonathan groups seek Obasanjo’s arrest on: 18-12-2013 09:42AM

 Two groups working for President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday called for the immediate arrest of a former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, over his letter to President Goodluck Jonathan alleging some irregularities in government.
The groups, PDP Reloaded and Arise Nigeria, alleged that majority of the issues raised by Obasanjo in his letter happened during his regime both as military head of state and as civilian President.
Leaders of the two groups,  Chief Richard Lamai(PDP Reloaded) and Chief Jasper Johnson (Arise Nigeria), who spoke at a press briefing in Abuja, also extolled the leadership qualities of President Jonathan.
They wondered why the former President could resort to writing letters when he could call the President or visit him at any time.

They noted that Obasanjo must have the list of the alleged 1,000 politicians listed for elimination by the Federal Government in preparation for the 2015 general elections and that because of this, he should be invited by the security agencies.
The statement partly reads, “It is in this regard that we call on the nation’s security agencies to invite Obasanjo to help them unravel the mystery camp where the snipers are being trained and the list of those earmarked for elimination.”
However,  a former deputy governorship candidate  in Ogun State, Mr. Tunde Oladunjoye,  dismissed those calling for the arrest of  Obasanjo as political jobbers and profiteers,  who the former  President would not dignify with a response.
Oladunjoye, in a telephone interview on Tuesday, explained that Obasanjo expected Jonathan to respond to the letter, stressing that he (Obasanjo) would not bandy words with anyone over it.
He said, “Obasanjo will not react, join issues or bandy words with anybody or groups. He has written an open letter and what he expects is for President Jonathan to respond to the contents and carry out what he highlighted in the letter.”
20  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / BREAKING NEWS: ASUU Calls Off Industrial Action (UPDATED, VIDEO ADDED) on: 17-12-2013 12:57PM

The President of the Academic Staff Union of Nigerian Universities (ASUU), Dr. Nasir Fagge, told Saharareporters about the decision to suspend 5-month industrial action.
The ASUU leader also held a press conference in Minna, after the marathon National Executive Council meeting was over at about 12.50 a.m. on December 17, 2013, Tuesday. In attendance at the meeting were all the ASUU branch chairmen and secretaries, the national executive members of the body, coordinators and past leaders, including 56 members from 52 universities.
The decision should take effect starting from today.
Another confirmation came from ASUU Chairman, University of Lagos Chapter, Dr. Karo Ogbinaka, who also confirmed in an interview to Channels Television that the union decided to suspend the strike.
Dr. Ogbinaka said that, in line with procedures, the different chapters of ASUU would hold congress meetings on Wednesday to inform members and managements of the institutions of the latest development.

    "We expect the students to resume and expect their members to go back to class immediately after the congress meeting and we expect the government to keep to the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)," he stated.

It would be noted that the decision to end the protracted industrial action was taken after ASUU signed a new agreement with the Federal Government on December 11, 2013 (see the official document below).
