The Minister of Labour and Productivity, Senator Chris Ngige, has declared that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will capture Anambra State through “seen and unseen forces”.
Ngige made the statement shortly after revalidating his membership of the party at Alor Ward 1, Idemili South Local Government Area of the State on Saturday.
He said the APC registration and revalidation was designed to strengthen and fortify the party in the country, calling on Anambra people to key in.
The Minister said Anambra APC is deploying all the “necessary forces” to make sure that the APC takes over the government by November.
“APC is going to use both seen and unseen forces to capture Anambra state by November. By this registration and revalidation, we are trying to fortify the party in the state.
“The seen forces are human beings and the unseen force is God, who is behind the APC,” he said.
He called on the people to use the opportunity offered by the APC registration to register with the party, noting that the APC is a party to beat in Anambra.
According to Ngige ,the registration is meant to hand over the party to the grassroots, without which, there is no party.
“Anambra people should come out and identify with APC. We want the party to be handed over the people and that is the major reason we are doing this registration,” he said.
The chairman of the APC registration and revalidation exercise, Senator Bello Turku, urged Anambra people to come out en masse to register with the party.
“Please, make sure that your registration will translate to winning the election by November. The bigger the merrier,” he said.
Ngige is a former governor of Anambra.
NUT FAULTS ASUSS CLAIMS ON COURT JUDGEMENT.
The Nigeria Union of Teachers, NUT Ekiti State wing has described as untrue that the Supreme Court in its judgement of January, 15,2021,granted secondary school teachers operating under the umbrella of Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools ,ASUSS,power to operate as a trade union.
Members of the Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools ASUSS had early issued a statement where it applauded the supreme court for stopping plans by NUT to deregister it.
However, NUT Ekiti State wing in a statement signed by it chairman Comrade Oke Emmanuel and the secretary Comrade Akin Ade Ojo cautioned members of ASUSS aginst spreading fake news and misinforming members of the public about the outcome of the court saying no amount of lies peddled by the group would change the fact about their status.
According to NUT the claim by ASUSS in a section of the media that it has obtained judgment to unionize secondary school teachers is reckless, complete falsehood and extraneous to the decisions of the Supreme Court.
Ekiti NUT insisted that contrary to the claim of ASUSS that it was granted registration, Supreme Court never granted such order saying the Union was only being mischievous.
Setting the Record Straight “The subject matter between ASUSS vs NUT bothered on the jurisdiction of the Federal High Court to grant the restraining order sought by the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) against the Minister of Labour and Productivity to unilaterally register a Trade Union contrary to the provisions of Ss. 3(2), 5 (4) of the Trade Union Act CAP. T14 LFN 2004.”
“The contest of the jurisdiction of the Federal High Court to hear the Suit of Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) vs Academic Staff Union of Secondary Schools (ASUSS) was upheld by the Federal High Court Abuja, which was appealed by the ASUSS to the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court respectively.
However, the Supreme Court in its judgement held that ” under the doctrine of stare decisis, we are bound by these decisions. It follows therefore, that in the instant case, where His Lordship E. Ekanem, JCA who did not participate in the hearing of the appeal, rendered a judgment thereon, the lower court, in so far as the panel that delivered the judgment was different from the panel that heard the appeal, was incompetent.
“The appeal is therefore allowed. The judgment delivered on 9/6/2014 is a nullity and must be and is hereby set aside. Appeal No. CA/A/256/09 shall be remitted to the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, to be heard by a different panel of that court.”
NUT wonders where ASUSS got its own version of the judgement, urging members of the public to disregard the fake news.
Drama In Senate As Smart Adeyemi Describes Abia Gov As A ‘Drunkard’
There was a mild drama in the Senate when Senator Smart Adeyemi (APC, Kogi) described Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State as a “champagne drinking man”.
Adeyemi, while contributing to a motion on Safe School Initiative in Nigeria, said Abia is governed by “drunkards”.

The lawmaker was apparently responding to a social media post allegedly linked to Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, who is from Abia.
In the post, Abaribe was said to have cast aspersion on Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello.
However, Abaribe said he was surprised that the Kogi Senator was making reference to a statement he did not make.
Adeyemi said while some governors were committed to the welfare and protection of their people, Abians “are governed by drunkards”.
He said: “Despite that some governors are doing their best, we are lucky to have a governor who has taken the issue of security as a serious priority.
“We are bordered by nine states, but we had an experience of the unfortunate incidents that are happening in neighbouring states.
“Some governors are committed to the protection of their people. In my state, the governor awarded contracts for the renovations of schools and provides security services to them.
“In some states where we have highly intelligent people, highly educated people, very enterprising people, like Abia, they are governed by drunkards. The governor of Abia is a champagne drinking man.
“Abia people are impoverished more than ever before. Abia people are unfortunate.”
At this point, Senate President Ahmad Lawan cautioned him against insulting the governor.
Responding, Abaribe expressed shock over Adeyemi’s comment and urged his colleague to tender an apology to the governor of Abia.
Abaribe said: “Mr President, I will like to make a clarification. Unfortunately, what has happened here today is one of the problems that you see on social media. I never made any comment on the governor of Kogi State. Never!
“What has happened is what we see going on today. People write something and tag your name to it. And if you don’t ask question, you will not know whether you actually said it or not.
“And I see so many things tagged to me but I don’t talk. The last time I saw Nuhu Ribadu, I also spoke to him. Something was ascribed to him that was very deleterious.
“I’m very surprised that my good friend and colleague decided to take on the governor of Abia for something I never said.”
