Senator Andy Uba’s Convoy Not Involved In Manhandling Motorist

Our attention has been drawn to a 49-seconds trending video showing an obvious altercation between a motorist and some security personnel, allegedly at the Udoka Housing Estate, Awka.

Although the long and close-up shots of the said video had none of the vehicles in Senator Andy Uba’s convoy in view, desperate attempts are being made to drag Senator Uba into the unfortunate incident.

For us at the Senator Andy Uba Governorship Campaign Organisation, SAUGCO, while we frown at any form of brutality or overzealousness on the part of any law enforcement agent, or agency, we hasten to add that it would be bad politics to attempt to drag the Senator into a matter he is clearly unaware of.

In deed, our findings indicate that at the time of the said incident, Senator Uba was at Hollywood Events Centre, Agu Awka, where he received defecting local government and ward chairmen of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA – including the chairman of Governor Willie Obiano’s home ward in Aguleri, Anambra East Local Government Area of the state – into the APC.

Although Senator Uba was earlier in the day at his Udoka Housing Estate office, where several dignitaries, including serving state and federal legislators came to discuss their planned movement into the All Progressives Congress, APC, thus leading to huge traffic snarl in the area, we assert that Senator Uba had long left the office before the unfortunate incident occurred.

We, therefore, urge the public to be circumspect in believing any form of propaganda aimed at tarnishing the soaring image of Senator Uba, especially in the aftermath of the gale of defections into the APC.

If for nothing else, every resident of Anambra and beyond can attest to Senator Uba’s gentle mien, and the pious values he holds dear to his heart, notable of which is the abhorrence of violence in any form.

EndSARS: Lekki residents donate office block to police station

The Lekki Estates Residents and Stakeholders Association (LERSA) has donated an office block to Ajiwe Police Station, Ajah, Lagos, to support policing of the area.

LERSA President, Chief James Emadoye, while inspecting the building on Wednesday preparatory to its inauguration and handing over to the Nigeria Police Force, said the project was 95 per cent completed.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that many police stations and business premises and property were destroyed during the EndSARS protests exactly a year ago.

According to Emadoye, the building, which awaits painting and completion of the restrooms, will be delivered to the Inspector General of Police through the Lagos State Commissioner of Police.

“Members of the association recall the wanton destruction that followed the unfortunate incidence of the protests last year.

“The association almost completed the development of a block of office to accommodate the police, while waiting for government’s full construction of the police station, which was totally destroyed last year.

“The Exco of LERSA approved and released the sum of N8.5 million for the project, which was donated financially and materially by the members.

“You will recall also that the association has, between Oct. 20, 2020 and today, donated two vehicles to the Nigerian

Police to assist them in the discharge of their duties.

“As at today, we would like to thank God that this project is 95 per cent completed,” he said.

Emadoye noted that the association was committed to continually intervene in all manners, as a responsible organisation with programmes that would affect the lives of citizens in Lekki area.

He commended Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led government over the maintenance of the roads and for the progress made in the construction of the Lekki Regional Road.

“We trust that the government would fulfill its promises by starting the coastal road before the end of its term in office.

“A Lagos of peace and tranquility and a true mega city, which will be home to all and a greater Lekki Peninsula, which shall be the destination for living, tourism and businesses in Nigeria.”

CSP Tajudeen Mustapha, Divisional Police Officer on hand at the project inspection, commended the association’s assistance to the Nigeria Police Force.

He noted that the building would be used and continuously maintained to the very high standard that the association had provided.
