COMMUNIQUE ARISING FROM CONCERNED ANAMBRA MEDIA PRACTITIONERS SUMMIT HELD TODAY 14TH OF MARCH, 2018 AT MARBLE ARCH HOTEL, AWKA, ANAMBRA STATE.

As part of Programmes to usher in Governor Wille Obiano’s second term as the Executive Governor of Anambra State. The Independent Media Support Organization (IMSO), has staged the Concerned Anambra Media Practitioners Summit (CAMP 2018) today 14, March, 2018 at Marble Arch Hotel, Awka with the theme: Role of Media in Sustaining Productive Governance.

The summit which had major stakeholders in the state x-rayed how the members of the media can help sustain good and transparent governance in Anambra State. After deliberations emanating from Panel Discussions, the members of the media aimed at the following resolutions :

• That Governor Willie Obiano performed tremendously well in his first term in office and must be supported by the general public, good men and women of Anambra and most notably the media to achieve his goals and better Anambra in his second term.

• The media practitioners also stressed that the Governor should be given enormous support by the media to enlighten and carry the citizens of the state along, as they need to fulfill their civic obligations (Eg. Prompt payment of Taxes) as a way of making resources available to the government to speed up the process of enhancing governance in the state.

• The media aides in the new dispensation, should improve their relationships with the Journalists who are non state actors by being accessible at all times for possible and first hand confirmation of information when the need arises so as to spread the state with verified and reliable information.

• The Governor should also reciprocate the kind gesture and support shown to him by the people of the state which made him the most decorated Governor of the state with the 21/21 victory. The media practitioners claimed that the victory was influenced for his personae.

• The Governor should be supported to achieve more greater and better prominence as a way of projecting him to render his God given talent of leadership and services to the Nation after his tenure as Anambra State Governor.
• One key speaker for the media practitioners commended IMSO and urged the organization to continue playing its role in setting agenda to stimulate good governance in Anambra State.

After the staunch interactive session which saw commendations and support pouring in for Gov.Willie Obiano from Media practitioners across the state, the Chairman of Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) Anambra State ably represented by Mrs. Betty Onuchukwu thanked IMSO for such opportunity and show of concern in Willie Obiano’s administration as she continued to praise Media Practitioners present and urged them to always be professional in their job that the Governor will be indeed satiated to hear all they said.

How We Were Kidnapped By Fulani Herdsmen; Kidnapped Awka Comedian Recounts

Earlier in the week, we brought you news of 3 KIDNAPPED AWKA COMEDIANSwho were kidnapped along the Enugu- Onitsha Express Way. We also informed you that they were released few days ago.

Prince Neche, one of the kidnapped Awka Comedian has taken to his Facebook page to narrate how they were kidnapped by the Fulani Herdsmen

Below is the story:

THE BEGINNING!!!

I only had a morning flight to catch in enugu on Monday morning and considering that there was an IPOB sit at home order we knew that leaving Anambra on Monday morning May not work so we decided to go to enugu on Sunday against Monday.

 

Enroute Enugu via old road seeing the huge traffic on that wonderland road and on the express too, we decided to follow inside unizik School, burst out at Ifite, drive through amansea to Express before joining the old road again.

I was driving while MC Two Mic and Mc Apostle were with me.

 

After successfully cutting off the hold up and coming back on the express we just needed to drive a few kilometers before we join the old road and keep heading to enugu.

Then getting to a Bad spot on the road and trying to navigate it, my car got stuck!!!

THE ATTACK

Two Seconds everywhere burst!!!

First I heard gunshots and in split seconds I saw a man with his face covered wielding a gun. First he shot at my head lamps in a bid to switch them off! Then shot at my car few times. He moved to the Bus beside mine and shot at it a few times too, the occupants of the Buses behind and beside me speedy abandoned their buses and ran for dear life.

I made to run but my seatbelt pulled me back and before I could remove the seatbelt to run the man was already beside my door then I heard his first words “ip you mobe, I paya”.

He pulled me out of the car, and then I saw two more men with machetes. They dragged me to the bush and asked me if I had money. I answered in the affirmative and told them where the money was in my car, I turned back to see another two guys dragging Mc two mic and MC apostle into the busy too, the guys with us left and went back to my car to get the money, they came back and asked for my phones and I told them I left it in my car, they went back to my car and brought my two phones.

Then they asked us to lie down and facedown… I wanted to raise my neck to plead when one of them raised his machete and it landed on my back, it wasn’t I cut!!! It was a slap!

A very painful Machete slap!

Then I saw one of them coming with a woman!

Apparently she was in one of the buses behind my car but could run cos she was fat, so they captured her… but their leader said she was going to slow them down so they took everything that was on her and released her…

Actually, their leader released her but the smallest of them (A little boy barely 14years old) said they should kill the woman. The leader refused so they slapped her with the matchete and asked her to run out of the bush.

Anambra 2021: Insecurity Can’t Stop Anambra Election – Ifeanyi Ubah

Anambra 2021: Insecurity Can’t Stop Anambra Election – Ifeanyi Ubah

Senator Ifeanyi Ubah (YPP-Anambra South) has expressed confidence that the Anambra governorship election would go ahead despite mounting security challenges.

Powerofnaija.com reports that the Southeast has been rocked with many killings. The Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has been accused by security agencies of carrying out the attacks and killings.

Speaking to newsmen on Wednesday, Senator Ubah said that the current insecurity in the region would not affect the conduct of the polls.

We are used to holding elections during crisis situations. This is a constitution process which must be completed. We will do everything possible to make sure that we have a very smooth poll on November 6,” he said.

The lawmaker dismissed reports that his party, the YPP, was behind the crisis rocking the region contrary.

He said: “The YPP has the blessings of God and everybody needs to queue behind the party. We meant well for Anambra State. Other parties didn’t mean well for the Anambra State that’s why they are having a crisis.

For them to be having a crisis means that their foundation was not solid. We don’t have any crisis in the YPP and we are very strong. We are not behind their predicament.”

Ubah also ruled out the possibility of defecting from the party before or after the election.

“I won’t defect because of my belief in the party. I will stand by the part any day, any time and anywhere.

“I initiated a motion which led to one of the biggest bills in the 9th Senate. I am also the co-sponsor of the bill for the Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contracts Act 2004 (Amendment Bill, 2009).

“The bill is generated for Nigeria every year, over N700billion. This is something that Nigeria should be proud of. That is what YPP has given to Nigerians,” he stressed.

Ebenezer Ayeni, a gospel music producer, has sadly passed away.

The man died from gunshot wounds after he was attacked by armed robbers in Ibadan, Oyo state on Thursday June 10.

According to his friends who have taken to social media to mourn him, Ebenezer who was set to tie the knot with his lover next week was attacked by the armed robbers who invaded his home. He was said to have been rushed to the University College Hospital Ibadan and another private hospital but was rejected as the hospital staff allegedly demanded for police report before they could treat his gunshot injury.

He died hours later in the pool of his own blood.

His body has since been deposited in the morgue.

His friends have taken to social media to express their sadness over his sudden demise.

One of his friends, MC ShayorComedian, wrote: ”Man of God like I used to call you, Ebenezer Ayeni NIGERIA HAS HAPPEN TO YOU TOO AND MY HEART BLEEDS.
