Nigeria’s staggering democracy is speedily tilting towards the rich taking charge of the whole electoral processes in their different political parties. Plutocracy as it is has never been known to us as one of the ethos of democracy and how our politicians are breeding this monstrous act remains a wonder. Vote buying or merchandising, no matter how it is christened has militated against the will of the people as well worked against the socio-development of a people. This is mostly done by political desperadoes who lack all it takes to win elections either at the primaries or general elections and feel that moneybag politics is the way to go. Delegates and electorates have made themselves vulnerable to these political merchants that they now see it as money for "business as usual," thus a  transaction that benefits both parties.  Worse still, delegates and electorates now prioritize highest bider over competence and hardwork thereby voting only the candidates with deep pockets

Killing of Adamawa woman in Anambra should not be ethnicised – HURIWA

Civil rights advocacy group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, (HURIWA) on Wednesday, condemned the gruesome murder of an indigene of Adamawa State, Harira Jibril, and her four kids by gunmen in Anambra State. HURIWA also condemned the rash of killings by ISAP of 50 young boys in Ran Borno state and 12 persons in Katsina by Fulani terrorists. The Rights group said the patience of Nigerians is running out with the current patently incompetent Federal government. HURIWA, in a statement by its National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, said security agents must go after the perpetrators of the heinous crimes in Borno, Katsina and Anambra States. The group, however, warned that the killing of the married Adamawa woman who had reportedly lived all her life in Anambra State should not be ethnicised or politicised by fifth columnists who always want to trigger violent inter-tribal and inter-religious conflicts. HURIWA urged the Governors of Northern States to ensure that all

Our attention has been drawn to a mischievous  20-point agenda circulating on some social media handles, authored by one Choco Nwaigbo esq, who also appropriated to himself, the position of Special Remote Adviser to the governor on security matter. The 20-point agenda purportedly tagged "Soludo Solution" is a fictitious write-up that was not authorised or emanated from Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo or any of the government agencies. It is purely a figment of the author's imagination and certainly not from the Government of Anambra State. There are designated  channels for any information from the government meant for the public. The public is kindly advised to disregard the said 20-point agenda as a fake write-up.

.........PLEDGES N10M REWARD FOR ANY VALUABLE INFO TO TRACK THE KILLERS Prof Chukwuma Charles Soludo; CFR, has received with shock and deep sadness the news of the gruesome murder of Hon. Okechukwu Okoye, member representing Aguata II Constituency at the State House of Assembly and his aide, Cyril Chiegboka. Both Hon Okoye and Cyril Chiegboka were kidnapped on the road by the heartless and barbaric murderers on 15th May. Gov Soludo condoles with his kinsmen of Isuofia, noting that it is probably the same criminal gang that attacked him and killed three policemen at Isuofia two years ago that are once again on the prowl.  But they can never cow down Isuofia and Anambra state.
