Tribunal Ends Final Written Address, Sets for Judgment – Kogi Central.

The Kogi State Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja, on Monday, ended the prejudgment proceeding on the consolidated petition by Natasha Akpoti of SDP and Ahmed Ogembe of PDP against Yakubu Oseni of APC.

While defending his petition, the Counsel to Natasha Akpoti of SDP, Ayo Asala (SAN), adopted his final written address and the arguments therein.

Asala (SAN) argued that the Counsel to the second and third Respondents (APC & Oseni) went against the judgment of the Appeal Court when they sought the relief of the Tribunal to dismiss Natasha Akpoti’s petition for what they termed incompetency of the witnesses that presented the evidence gathered in the course of inspecting INEC materials used for the 2019 Kogi Central senatorial election.

Asala (SAN) further argued that the Court of Appeal made far reaching revelations in its judgement which granted the result of the evidence gathered in the inspection of the INEC materials, adding that the judgment of the appellant court which was instituted by the second and third Respondents must be obeyed.

Asala (SAN), added that the Counsels to APC and Yakubu Oseni only succeeded in playingdown the judgment of the Court of Appeal which upheld the Tribunal’s ruling and granted Natasha Akpoti the right to use the evidence.

Asala (SAN) maintained that since the third Respondent (Oseni) instituted the appeal against the earlier ruling of the Tribunal which granted Natasha Akpoti of SDP the right to use the evidence gathered in the course of inspecting INEC materials, the ruling of the appellant court must be abided by and accepted in good faith instead of attacking the ruling and rearguing the same case.

However, Counsels to Yakubu Oseni and APC who serve as the second and third Respondents to the petition No. EPT/KG/SEN/02/2019 by Natasha Akpoti of SDP, EB Daudu and Muhammed Abdulwahab maintained that witnesses which presented the evidence gathered in the course of inspecting INEC materials are not professional and sought the relief of the Tribunal to dismiss the petition by Natasha Akpoti on the ground that it did not fulfill all guidelines on the order given by the Tribunal to inspect INEC materials.

While citing relevant authorities in support of his argument, Daudu also urged the Tribunal to dismiss the petition by Ahmed Ogembe of PDP.

the counsel to Ahmed Ogembe of PDP, Olumide Alaiya, however, argued that the authority cited by the Counsel to Oseni cannot stand on the ground that the cases cited lacks substance, urging the Tribunal to grant his petition.

In his ruling, the chairman of the three man bench, Hon. Justice A. O. Chijioke held that the court will guided by the relevant authorities that relate to the matter, adding that ruling on the consolidated petition is reserved and date for the judgement will be communicated to the parties involved.

The Vanishing Glory of Ebiraland

For starters, ebiraland is a tribe located in kogi central, north central, Nigeria. It is a rocky enclave populated by hard working, energetic and well cultured men. The women are very beautiful and highly enterprising and industrious. The elites are very intelligent, humble and proud of a heritage bound in peace and industry.
The community had given the world eminent professionals, captains of industry, top brass crop of brave and patriotic members of the armed forces.
The political class are loyal and competent men and women imbued with vision and astute leadership that have carved a niche for themselves in their various capacities and positions in the polity.
The academics are highly brilliant and leading lights and bright minds in their chosen careers. The professionals are making their marks in the socio-economic architecture globally.
Once upon a time ebiraland produced men and women like late Abdulazeez Attah, the first Nigeria secretary to the federal government. The enclave also had late George Ohikere, IGP Aliu Attah, DIG Yusuf, General Salihu Ibrahim who died recently, late Abdul rahaman Okene, Mahmoud Attah, Iate colonel Omananyi, late Adamu Attah, Ambassadors Usman Bello, M.K. Ibrahim, S.A. Lawal and General Ahmuda among others.
We had the likes of Engr. Austin Oniwon, Alhaji Mohammed Adoke SAN, Engr. Sam Ohuoutu, Engr. Joseph Makoju. Ebiraland, at last count, have produced no fewer than 90 professors. These include Prof. Albert Ozigi, Prof. Nuhu Yabub, Prof. M. S. Audu, Prof. Angela Okatahi to mention but a few.
Among the political class, we have the likes of Alhaji Yahaya Bello, Dr. Phillips Salawu, Chief Patrick Adaba, Chief Isa Ozi Salami and Alhaji Yakubu Oseni.
Meanwhile, I am highly saddened that our generation may never groom any bonafiide replacement to take over from our senior citizens in the nearest future. What we have now are half baked politicians and professionals. What a vanishing glory.

The Mood of Ebira Nation as We Await 2019 General Elections

By Otori Ozigi

Unarguably, Ebiraland is gripped in miasma of open politicking, a reflection of electioneering process as witnessed in other climes in the country today at a time the whole Nation is caught up in active politics.

As you may be aware already, next year is an important one in the political evolution of this country, needless to say that there will be four major elections to be conducted by INEC in virtually all the states of the federation. Let me remind us that next year will witness presidential, senatorial, House of Representatives and, finally, state houses of assembly elections, all taking place on a staggered timetable as released by the electoral umpire, INEC.

Recall that the electoral body recently lifted the ban on open campaigns and rallies. Consequently and expectedly, our political class have already gone to the trenches and mapping out various strategies for their full participation in the game of politics come 2019.

Now, let talk about the mood of Ebira Nation. In the spirit of open politicking by major players and party gladiators, palpable anxiety and worrisome happening pervade the polity today.

Let me remind us that come February next year INEC has fixed senatorial election to be conducted in accordance with the umpire guidelines to serve as a template for the polls. In compliance with this guidelines, Alhaji Yakubu Oseni who is running on the ticket of APC, Barr Natasha Akpoti on the ticket of SDP and Senator Ogembe on the platform of PDP are unarguably going to face the verdicts of the electorates come rain come sunshine. One of them will eventually carry on his or shoulder the destiny of over four million Anebira.

At this juncture, I want to enjoin the electorates to shine their eyes very well before casting their votes for the candidates of their choice. I want to appeal to the electorate not to sell their conscience for pecuniary gains or other mundane considerations. They should remember that they carry the burden of the rest of us.

This journalist want to caution the three candidates not to resort to violence or any other unwholesome conduct that may derail our peace. Gone are the days when our politicians would seek political offices through the barrel of the guns and open coercion, senseless buying and selling of votes.

Certainly, this is the time for us to get it right so that Ebiraland can witness a new dawn. Yes! We must get it right this time around. It is my hope that the best candidate should emerge through a credible, free and fair process.
