Northern Governors Meeting: Discuss Security, Herdsmen, NNDC Issues

Chairman, Northern States Governors’ Forum and Governor of Borno State, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, has assured that the governors will take hard and critical look at conflicting issues with a view of coming up with implementable ways and means of addressing them squarely.

Speaking in Kaduna on thursday at the meeting of the forum, he said, “As elected leaders, it is our primary responsibility to take a hard and critical look at these conflicts and come up with implementable ways and means of addressing them squarely.

“It is also critically important, as a long term measure, device viable strategies to forestall all forms of security challenges, that may likely erupt in the future.

“I need to emphasize that whatever resolutions we may arrive at, should be without prejudice to the various commendable and comprehensive measures being put in place by the Federal Government in addressing the security challenges; especially the recent abduction of the Dapchi School Girls.

“We appreciate and commend the efforts being made by President Muhammadu Buhari in the Dapchi crisis by ensuring the deployment of all necessary security personnel and equipment towards the rescue of the abducted girls.

“Our prayers and commiseration goes to the Government and people of Yobe State as well as the families of the victims over the sad and unfortunate incident.

“In the last few days, Taraba and Kaduna States have again experienced spates of deadly and destructive communal clashes which culminated in the loss of many lives and destruction of millions of naira worth of property.

“Although the security agencies have responded positively and are now on top of the situation, we, as a Forum, need to pay particular attention to the root causes of such conflicts and their seemingly intractable nature with an open mind and from an unbiased perspective, in order to arrive at comprehensive means of addressing them.

“We should, in the process, also avoid inputting political, ethnic or religious colorations to the conflict.”

He noted that an important item on the agenda of today’s meeting has to do with all the outstanding issues concerning the New Nigeria Development Company Limited (NNDC).

“Your Excellencies may recall that we had earlier wanted to summon a 2-Day Extra-Ordinary meeting of the Forum to solely discuss and resolve all the issues raised by the NNDC, but the meeting could not hold due to certain extenuating circumstances. So it is imperative this time we devote considerable time to deliberating and resolving the issues concerning the NNDC.

“It is a known fact that the current Board and Management of the NNDC have, in the last few years initiated commendable measures aimed at resuscitating the Company as the economic lived wire of the region,” he observed.

The chairman explained that some appreciable progress had been made, adding that there were still quite a number of institutional challenges and inadequacies which need to be addressed, in order to enable the Company to forge ahead and achieve its desired objectives.

He added, “These include recapitalization of the Company’s share capital from N500 million to N2.750 billion, the resuscitation of Kaduna Textiles Limited and the urgent need to ensure the full take-off of the New Nigeria Commodity Marketing Company. These are just few of the critical areas of concern in respect of the NNDC which we, as a Forum, need to strategically examine and adequately resolve.”

He said sequel to a resolution of the forum, a special Committee was set up to solicit the views and comments of various, groups and sections in the Northern States in respect of the then persistent calls for restructuring of the country.

Shettima noted that with a view to coming up with an acceptable common position for the region, the Committee headed by the governor of Sokoto State, Alhaji Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, is expected to submit its Interim Report today.

The report, he said, was also one of the items slated for deliberation at today’s meeting.

“We may recall that the concept of restructuring, at the initial stage, had taken various dimensions which included resource control, regionalism and geopolitically divisions among others.

“So it was imperative that the North as a region like other regions of the Federation should have a common position on the issue; hence the establishment of the Committee,” he observed.

  34. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a
    tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but
    I had to ask!

  35. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

  37. Despite residing in Germany for nearly 30 years, there are still some things I cannot wrap my mind around. I may have married a German, pay German taxes, and have German(-American) children, but I guess my US mentality still shines through.

    Like when it comes to personal space. I’ll be standing in the supermarket, in front of a shelf full of products, deliberating over the selection, and inevitably a hand will slip itself in front of my face and grab an item from the row. Many Germans seem to not have any qualms about this at all, but it still takes me aback sometimes.

  38. I’m not sure exactly why but this website is loading very slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
