July 26, 2017

The Ebira Youth Congress in Kogi has appealed to the Federal Government to engage TyazhPromExport (TPE), a Russian company, on bilateral agreement to complete the moribund Ajaokuta Steel Company.

Mr Baba Abdulrazak, President General of the congress, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Abuja that government should meet with TPE construction company to complete the remaining two per cent work for Ajaokuta to become operational.

Alleged Assault On Okene DLG, The Truth Of The Matter

The attention of the media unit of Okene Local government has been drawn to rumour and unfounded allegations making round on social media that, the Administrator of Okene Local government, Hon. (Mall.) Abdulrazaq Muhammad ordered his Personal Assistant to molest the Local government DLG, Hajia Hawawu Owuda. We wish to state that, the information is false and an attempt to blackmail and malign the Local government Administrator.

Hon. Abdulrazaq by his nature and political history is a humble, religious and non violence politician who has since brought peace and decorum to the political atmosphere of Okene Local government.

It is normal for public office holders to disagree in the course of their official assignment but what happened yesterday right inside the office of the Administrator was a clear case of affront and insubordination on the part of the DLG.

Okene Local government Administrator by virtue of his appointment is the head of the Council an such, he gives lawful orders, dir…
