Plateau IDPs quit camps as clashes kill 10 in Taraba

About 10 people were yesterday killed in Taraba State, Northeast Nigeria as two communities reportedly clashed, in Lau Local Government Area.

According to official sources, the clashes broke out, afternoon between Shomo and Juole villages over yet to be identified reasons.

Of the 10 killed, seven were children aged 3-10 years, it was learnt.

A breastfeeding mother was reportedly roasted with her baby during the clashes.

Several houses and other properties were equally destroyed, leading to widespread displacements, it was gathered.

The clashes believed to have subsided came as Internally Displaced Persons in Plateau State had visited the State Governor, Mr. Simon Lalong to announce their intentions to voluntarily return home.

Leaders of the IDPs at School of Geosciences camp in Anguldi, Jos South were yesterday noon at the State Government House to meet with Gov. Lalong over their return.

Sources had said the IDPs who numbered about 3000 as of June 2018 had planned to exit the camp by next week.

Welfare Officer of the camp, Mr. Francis Chong however confirmed the desire of all the IDPs to exit camp but said no date had been set.

"The rainy season is near and we want to know from the Government how far about arrangements for our return because we want to go back to our normal lives," he said.

About 230 of the IDPs had been evacuated back to their villages in December last year through a joint effort of the State Government and Special military Task Force.

Dozens of them were later said to have returned back to camp following renewed security threats and food shortages.

However, food and water supply to the IDP camps appears to have dropped, forcing the IDPs to reconsider a home return.

A visit to the camp reveals broken water containers and boreholes, abandoned cooking pots and a handful of children and aged people loitering idly.

Many of them are believed to always leave camp in search of menial jobs within the surrounding communities.

The State Government had entered agreements with the Federal Government to provide humanitarian and security support for the IDPs when finally resettled.

A temporary mobile police barrack had been identified by the Government for renovation in one of the attacked villages - Kura Falls pending the construction of a permanent barrack in Gashish village as approved by President Muhammadu Buhari in June 2018.

“The clinic will have consultation rooms, female and male wards, pharmacy, laboratory, theatre staff quarters."


In his remarks, the Governor of Kano State, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje who was represented by the Commissioner of Health, Dr Kabiru Getso, commended the organisation for initiating the project.

2019: PPBA, Police, INEC meet over crisis signs in Jos North

The Plateau State Peace Building Agency says it has discovered signs that the 2019 General elections might be violent in some parts of Jos North Local Government Area.

Latest intelligence reports, as well as the experiences of 2001, 2008 and 2010 where civil unrests in the Plateau State capital began from the LGA are of great concern, Mr. Joseph Lengman, the Director General of the Agency said, Tuesday.

According to him, investigating emerging trends that point towards electoral violence and the panacea for promoting peaceful coexistence before, during and after the general elections is the concern of the agency.

Thus, the agency he said is engaging critical stakeholders including community groups, security agencies and civil societies to find ways to stop the potential for violence in the city's commercial area.

Mr. Lengman in a meeting with Police, Drugs Law Enforcement Agency, State neighborhood watch officials, Secret Services and representative of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Jos was worried that during conflicts, ordinary citizens are most vulnerable.

"During crises, those in government are often shielded and the people that feel the greatest pains are the ordinary people in the streets whom government should protect," he said at the meeting which also had community representatives, civil society groups and the media in attendance.

Neutralizing any threats to peace before escalation therefore forms the basis for the expanded engagements of the body which initially got funding from the United States Embassy to tackle conflicts between farmers and herders, said the agency's boss.

Destruction of billboards, others

The spokesperson of INEC at the forum, Mr. Osarentin Imahirebo warned that pulling down of billboards and other political campaign media by opposing political parties was a major trigger to violence in the coming elections.

He also alarmed that politicians were drugging and arming youths to engage in violent demonstrations during campaign rallies thus threatening peace.

Mr. Imahirebo specifically called for interventions on the segregated nature of the communities in Jos North where Christians are separated from Muslims saying such poses threats to electoral officials.

10 raids a day

An official of the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency, Mr. Alex James equally alarmed that the LGA was a top consumer of illicit drugs.

He said in a day, the agency has made over ten raids with hundreds of arrests in a suburb in the LGA with daring exhibits but has yet to completely rid the communities of drugs.

He however assured that the agency has mapped out all the flashpoints in the state and was taking necessary actions.

So far from its raids and arrests in just two years, the NDLEA has seized 32tons of tramadol aside other hard drugs with some suspects already jailed.

Representative of the Police Command in the State, Mr. Deinma Abibo however asked citizens to "police" their vicinities and only seek official intervention in extreme cases.

This according to him is that the regimented police structures in the country are understaffed and underfunded to be everywhere.

2019: Gov. Lalong begs for peaceful campaigns in Plateau

Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau State, Tuesday asked political office seekers to shun politics of "do-or-die, violence and conflict" in the buildup to the 2019 General elections.

They should rather strive towards creating a better Plateau State for unborn generations to benefit, he said.

Mr. Lalong at the inauguration of the State APC 2019 elections campaign council in Jos appealed to political actors to shun self-help in the face of electoral defeat.

"We must learn to accept defeat when we lose elections and congratulate the winner without resorting to self-help," the Governor said.



Electoral Violence: Plateau Peace Agency Seeks Signs in Jos North

The Plateau State Peace Building Agency, Tuesday summoned a meeting of community representatives, peace actors and security agencies to discuss ways of preventing violence in the Northern part of Jos, the state capital.

The meeting organized as part of the agency's monthly peace architecture dialogue was informed by past experiences in the state as well as security reports signalling the possibility of violence, Director General of the Agency, Mr. Joseph Lengman said.

The main focus of the agency according to him is to identify the issues that tend to trigger violence before, during and after elections and other public activities and advise relevant stakeholders on preventive measures.

Details following soon.


Plateau: Lalong worried elections might be violent without media censorship

Ahead of the February General elections in the oil rich West African State, Nigerian authorities are worried that growing political tensions in the country might escalate.

This is more so that elections in the country are often prone to violence, Plateau State Governor, Mr. Simon Lalong said on Monday.

Given the agenda-setting role of the media however, self-censorship for conflict sensitivity in news media reporting holds the key to the success of the country's polls, Mr. Lalong told journalists at a UNDP workshop on Conflict Sensitive Reportage ahead of the 2019 General Elections in Nigeria.

"During elections, tensions are often high among contending political parties, hence the public can only make well informed decisions based on the quality and accuracy of the stories disseminated by the media.

Thus, journalists according to him have a responsibility to report without sentiments as "Good or bad reportage can make or mar an election."





IG Adamu Retires all DIGs

Mohammed Adamu

THISDAY: Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, has retired seven Deputy Inspectors-General of Police (DIGs) who were his seniors from the Force.

The affected officers are Maigari Dikko, the DIG in charge of Finance and Administration and Habila Joshak, the DIG in charge of Operations.

The other five DIGs are Emmanuel Inyang, Information and Communications Technology; Agboola Oshodi-Glover, Logistics and Supply; Mohammed Katsina, Research and Planning; Sani Mohammed, Training and Development; and Peace Ibekwe-Abdallah, Federal Criminal Investigation and Intelligence.

Their retirement would be announced formally later, it was learnt.

Police spokesperson, Frank Mba’s telephone was switched off at the time of this report.

The seven DIGs and eight Assistant Inspectors-General (AIG) were identified as having joined the police before Adamu, who was appointed on January 15 after the former IG Ibrahim Idris was retired as he attained the age of 60 years.

The seven police chiefs’ departure, according to Premium Times, was in furtherance of the convention that recommends the retirement of senior police chiefs when an officer junior to them in service or lower in rank is appointed to lead the institution.

When Idris was appointed IG in 2016, more than 20 DIGs and AIGs were compelled to retire from service to enable him constitute his management team.

Plateau lists categories of people at risk of Lassa Fever

The Plateau State Government says it has identified five categories of people at risk of Lassa Fever.

They include people who live in dirty environments, those expose food items that attract rats to homes, those who practice open sun drying of crops and those who consume rats as a delicacy.

State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Kamshak Kuden told MKB that it is impossible to totally eliminate rats from the human environment.

However, proper hygiene and waste management as well as a shift from the normal open sun drying of crops is key to controlling the rodents, he said.

The Commissioner advised those who consume rats to desist for the meantime.

Dr. Kuden disclosed that the State Governor, Simon Lalong has approved the release of funds for emergency actions against the outbreak.

About 17 cases out of 33 earlier suspected cases were last week confirmed in five LGAs of the State - Jos South, Jos North, Bassa, Riyom and Shendam.

All the identified cases are on isolation in two Teaching Hospitals in Jos and are responding to treatment, MKB learns.

Opinion|| Why Hon. Dr. Simon Mwadkon for Barkin Ladi/Riyom Federal Constituency by Davow Bwede Dorongs

Governance no doubt involves one person or a group managing the affairs of a state, community or organization.

In democratic governance, citizens decide who becomes what in the governance of their collective affairs.

Thus, the electorate/voters who are the final arbiters of whether the ideas and methods or policies and programmes of a political candidate/party are relatively superior to, and likely to be more beneficial to them than those of others, are to be equipped with the necessary information to enable them make informed decisions as to who is most qualified to represent them.

The competence and character of the various Reps Candidates for Barkin Ladi/Riyom Constituency, must, as a necessity, be examined in the the full glare of public limelight, because, what is at stake is the welfare of the entire Barkin Ladi/ Riyom constituency.

 This is more so, as a serious error of judgment or decision in the management of public affairs might adversely affect the lives and fortunes of Barkin Ladi Riyom people.

Based on his track record of achievements and excellence of character, I dare to say that, it is no gainsaying that, Hon. Dr. Simon Mwadkwon is the most qualified, both in competency and character, for the effective and purposeful Representative responsibility as expected from a House of Representatives Member, representing the good people of Barkin Ladi/Riyom
Federal Constituency. These deductions are informed by the following reasons:


1.) Hon Dr Mwadkwon as a personality worthy of emulation, has displayed an avalanche of Integrity, both in his conduct and approach to issues. The root of Integrity means "whole" or "undivided". Hon Dr Mwadkwon, who lives an undivided life,does not act one way in one situation and another in a different situation. This, of-course, is an exhibition of Integrity and wholeness in his life. Living this way has earn him a lot of admirers and followers.


2.) Honesty they say is the best policy, but it would not be out of place to add that, honesty is the policy of great leaders. Hon Dr Mwadkwon. is not the kind of person that hedge the truth, either for the sake of ramification or for the purpose of hiding something.

 Mwadkwon consciously knows that, a lack of honesty results in the fact that you destroy the trust of those who admire and follow you.

 Hon Dr simon Mwadkwon knows that if he tells his followers or admires the truth and lied to others, it would destroy the trust they had in him. He knows they would find themselves thinking "If he lies to others, will he not lie to me?". Hon Dr Mwadkwon  is fully aware that,reputation is what leadership is based on, and when we are honest and live transparently, people are able to see us for who we are and make solid decisions to follow or key into our projects.


3.) Another good trait that makes Mwadkwon a standard character is his loyalty to people. He has a "stick to it" attitude when it comes to others. He stays with his friends even in the downtimes. Anyone can be friends with others when times are good. People Of good character stay with their friends through thick and thin;when they need them most. If and When we are loyal to our friends and followers, they will be loyal to us and make every effort to succeed on our behalf.


4.) Self-sacrifice which is the giving up of one's own interests or wishes in order to help others or advance a cause is a special character trait, which you cannot take away from simple Simon Mwadkwon. As a person of good character,. Hon Dr Mwadkwon  has demonstrated in several occasions, even to the admiration of friends and foes,that he give up personal gain for the good of the whole. It is the believe of Mwadkwon Fwet that, people don't mind putting in more hard work once they are solid-stone sure that,they are not been used for personal gain.


5.) Accountability is an act of allowing others to have a say in our lives, to speak straight about our lives and conduct. The bitter truth is that, we have blind spots and need other people to be close to us, so we can advance down the road of success. The deficiency of accountability does not prove lack of character. Rather, the conspicuous display of it exhibit presence of character.  Hon Dr Mwadkwon Fwet knows this, hence, invites others to speak into his life. People grow tired of individuals who will have nothing to do with accountability. People don't mind individual who make mistakes, but are not comfortable with persons or individuals who don't take responsibility for their mistakes by been accountable. Hon Dr Mwadkwon is a personality that would always open his heart to criticism,and thus would do a great job leading or representing a cause,struggle, or organization.


6.) The ability to make decisions, especially good ones,about what we will and will not do with our actions is at the nucleus of what we become in regard to our character. There will be,more often than not,plenty of options to engage in things that undermines standard norms,values,and morality.But a person of good character knows the imperative need to exercise self-control,that is,control over choices. Hon Dr Mwadkwon sufficiently knows that,when an individual don't exercise self-control,they sabotage their ability to lead. People inordinately lose respect for them and would follow less,that is, if at all. Hon Dr Mwadkwon Fwet is a personality that exemplify the ability to choose to do the things we should, and refrain from doing the things we shouldn't do.


7.) Hon Dr Mwadkwon Fwet is a renowned philanthropist, who is known for striving to promote welfare of others through socially acceptable means. He is altruistic. Always venturing to alleviate the struggles of others without seeking anything for his own personal benefits. He salves those that are hurt without expectation of compensation or recognition of his efforts. Simon Mwadkwon Fwet is wildly known for his heightened social awareness. He has a great awareness of his surroundings. Not only is he open to opposing views and ideas, he also seek to understand the needs of others and how they can best be satisfied .Dr Mwadkwon is far-sighted, issue-oriented,and business minded.
Based on the exposition of the avalanche of character traits as exhibited by Hon Dr Mwadkwon from an empirical perspective, observations and evidences, it is safe to conclude that,the Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for the House of Representatives Membership,Representing Barkin Ladi, Riyom Federal Constituency, in the February 16,2019 General Elections, is the best man for the Job.

Update: Emergency team meets as Lassa Fever hits 5 Plateau LGAs

The Plateau State Government says it has traced the 17 reported Lassa Fever cases in the state to five local government areas.

Dr. Kamshak Kuden, the State Commissioner for Health told MKB on Sunday that the cases were found in Jos North, Jos South, Riyom and Bassa LGAs of the State.

33 cases according to him were initially suspected, but only the reported 17 were confirmed with five deaths so far.

15 of the patients are currently being treated at the Bingham University Teaching Hospital, Jos while two are in Jos University Teaching Hospital, he said.

Consequently, a Rapid Response Team earlier constituted by the State Governor, Simon Lalong has swung into action to curtail the spread of the disease, the Health commissioner disclosed.

The team has met last week and is expected to meet again tomorrow to chart a way forward on the development.

The State Governor has equally approved the release of funds for the infrastructural, manpower and other logistical needs of the team, he said.

Plateau confirms 17 new Lassa fever cases, 5 deaths

The Plateau State Government has confirmed 17 new Lassa Fever cases in the state.

Five deaths have so far been recorded within the past few days, State Health Commissioner, Dr. Kamshak Kuden told MKB.

Details have yet to be obtained as to the location of the identified patients.

The Nigerian Army Headquarters 3 Division, Jos was however said to have reported the death of its personnel from suspected Lassa Fever a fortnight ago.

The soldier was said to have been admitted at Bingham University Teaching Hospital, Jos until his demise.

He was said to have contracted the fever after travelling to a neighboring State.

"Nigerians fight societal growth by demanding so much from politicians," ADP Gubernatorial Candidate

Corruption might be high in Nigeria due to citizens' high expectations from political office holders, the ADP Gubernatorial Candidate in Plateau State, Mr. Jon Temlong says.

Mr. Temlong, a retired military General on Saturday believed seeking unnecessary financial support and grants from public servants pushes them to steal public funds at the expense of other crucial state needs.

Meanwhile, public offices are meant for service, not wealth accumulation, he said.

Mr. Temlong cautioned that patronizing and demanding from politicians without questioning their sources of wealth deprives the society of the needed growth.
