“YPP is gradually turning into one of the biggest political parties in Imo state. I want you to watch out and see what will happen.
“I want to tell you that Imo youths are joining this movement for better governance.
“We have visited developed countries and saw how they have organised their affairs. I want to tell you that we will replicate that in this state and all of us will enjoy it by the time we take over Imo Government Gouse.”
Meanwhile, in an earlier report, NIGERIA NEWS had reported that APC caution Okorocha, says the party will no longer tolerate assault on leaders.
CJ Asabe’s failure to retire honourably has brought undeserved insult to my husband – Zainab Bagudu
The first lady of Kebbi state, Zainab Bagudu has condemned the former acting Chief Justice of the state, Justice Asabe Saratu for not retiring from her position honourably.
Recall that her husband, governor Atiku Bagudu had sacked Saratu for complaining to the National Judicial Council (NJC) that her appointment was no confirmed by the state house of assembly because she is a Christian.
Zainab, who took to her Facebook page to react to this said although she celebrated her upliftment to the number one legal post in the state, but condemned what she termed her selfish attempt.
“As a female born to parents who both belong to the legal profession, I loudly celebrated the rise of Justice Asabe Karatu as the first female Chief Justice of Kebbi state. More so, I attended the university with her daughter. Now, I totally condemn her selfish attempt to hang on to position instead of retiring honourably.
Zainab who pointed that her allegations have brought about undeserved insults and criticism one her husband, Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu and others, noted that sadly, that is one of the burdens of leadership.
“It is worrisome that as a Nation, we allow religion to quickly divide us rather than use reason to search for reasons to avoid conflict.
“The statement below will not clear every mind, but it is necessary to set the records straight and we owe it to our children to always do what is right. Most of all, We should ALWAYS try to be bigger than our personal ambition. ”
