Anambra 2021: Stop wasting money on judiciary, Ebube Muonso to politicians

As the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State draws closer, the Spiritual Director of the Holy Ghost Adoration Ministry, Uke, and the Parish Priest of the Blessed Iwene Tansi Parish, Umudioka, both in Anambra State, Rev. Fr. Obimma Emmanuel, has called on politicians in the state to channel their resources on things that would uplift humanity, instead of wasting them on lawyers and judges.

In a homily during a Eucharistic celebration at the Blessed Iwene Tansi Parish, on Sunday, Fr. Obimma, popularly known as Fr. Ebube Muonso, expressed worry that political parties and politicians for the Anambra governorship race spend several hundreds of millions of naira in courts for mere intra party conflicts that could be managed internally; whereas majority of the youths still roam the streets without jobs; even as thousands hardly get their daily bread.

“I’m very sad and worried at the rate at which politicians are desperate to grab power. In the build-up for the Anambra governorship election coming up in November, serious of court cases have been springing up here and there, from the biggest political party to the least; only in the desperate bid to grab power, and have control over the wealth of the state.

“In almost all the political parties, there are court cases. Presently, it is a harvest time for Hausa and Fulani judges, who open their mouths wide to grab money from politicians, who cannot control their ego.

“I’ve met some of the politicians at different fora, and advised them to channel their resources on something good and beneficial. Everybody cannot be governor at the time. Instead of wasting resources on the judiciary, I would have expected politicians in Anambra to pool such resources together and build industries that would accommodate our teaming unemployed youths, who are currently roaming the streets without jobs. Also, there are old people in the society, who have nobody to take care of them. There are also sick people in the hospital, who cannot offset their bills,” he said.

Similarly, a member of the Board of Trustees of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka, has called on one of the claimants to the governorship ticket of the party, Chukwuma Umeoji, to withdraw his court cases for the interest of the party, so that APGA would focus on campaigns and winning the Anambra governorship election.

In a chat with newsmen, weekend, in Oba, Idemili North Local Government Area of the state, Ezeonwuka expressed sadness that money, which could have been ploughed into the election proper in order to secure victory for the party, was being expended in courts over who becomes the authentic candidate for the governorship election.

While calling on the Umeoji to submit himself to the supremacy of APGA, Ezeonwuka, who is also the proprietor of the Rojenny Game Village, Oba, asked the leadership of the party to devise internal mechanism that would check the repetition of activities, actions or inactions causing internal crisis in the party.

The judge held that the prosecution proved its case and that the statements of the first defendant, Worlu, at the police station were voluntarily given.

In the statement, the convict admitted that she administered the love potion as prepared by the prophetess in order to get financial assistance from Georgewill, adding that never knew it would result in his death.

Enebeli, after considering the facts presented by the parties, convicted and sentenced the two women to life imprisonment without any fine option.

The prosecutor, Chidi Ekah, said the judgment was not only justice for the deceased and his family, but also for the state and Nigeria at large.

He said, “I am happy that this matter has come to an end. It does not mean that I am happy that somebody’s life will be wasted in prison. We do not take delight in that, but the law must take its course. After all, somebody was killed and so the law says if you kill, this is the punishment for you.

“The court was even magnanimous enough to reduce it from murder to manslaughter. I am happy that justice has been served.”

But counsel for the first defendant, Vincent Chukwu, said his team would appeal the judgment.

“The fight is not over; it will certainly get to the Supreme Court,” Chukwu stated.

Sheikh Gumi Promoting Banditry In Northern Nigeria

The Christian organisation demanded a thorough probe on the activities of Sheikh Gumi, expressing concerns that the security crises and banditry in the north would be prolonged as the Almajiri system continued unchecked.

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has accused Kaduna State-based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, of being responsible for the increasing activities of bandits in the northern part of the country.

The Christian organisation demanded a thorough probe on the activities of Sheikh Gumi, expressing concerns that the security crises and banditry in the north would be prolonged as the Almajiri system continued unchecked.

The Imo State CAN Chairman, Rev Dr Divine Eches, raised the concerns in an interview in Abuja ahead of its 45th anniversary and Founder’s Day scheduled for Friday in Owerri.

He advised that the Nigerian government should caution Sheikh Gumi whose utterances, he said, had emboldened the bandits, thereby promoting their inhumane acts in the North.

He maintained that except drastic measures were taken to curb the Almajiri system, banditry would remain in northern Nigeria for a long time with devastating effects on the socio-economic lives of the people.

He said, “You can’t have the Almajiri system of life and government in the last 40 years in our nation, bringing up people without any trace to families, hometowns or nationalities. These children are scattered all over the streets, without you knowing that someday, they would leave the streets and go to the bush where they would begin to do the trade of kidnapping.

“Also, you can’t, in a sane nation, have the likes of Sheikh Gumi, a religious scholar, going about promoting banditry and you don’t think that this will continue. Yet, that is what we are seeing today. We are not seeing anything more than what we have planted.

“We allowed this thing (insecurity) to continue and it is now going to consume the nation if drastic measures are not put in place to take them (Almajiri) out of the streets. Give them a sense of belonging, put them in school, and help them realise their potential.

“These bandits were the Almajiri who used to be in front of our houses and begging. Howbeit, we are praying and that is why God is still sustaining our nation. I trust God will continue to sustain us in Jesus name.”
