The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has received a total of 129 Nigerians stranded from Libya at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.

NEMA Director-General of NEMA, Alh Mustapha Ahmed, who was represented by the Acting Coordinator of the Lagos Territorial Office of the Agency, Ibrahim Farinloye, confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

Farinloye said that the stranded Nigerians arrived at the Cargo Wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport at about 2.09 a.m. with Boeing 737-800 Al Buraq Air with registration number 5A-DMG.

He said that the returnees were brought back to the country by the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

This, he explained was done through a voluntary repatriation programme for the distressed who had left the country to seek greener pastures in various European countries but could not afford to return when their journey became frustrated.

Farinloye said that the returnees included 27 male adults, 74 female adults, four male and seven female children, six female infants and 11 male infants, including three males with mental health related issues.

“We admonished the returnees on the need to realize that there’s no country better than Nigeria.

“Here you have all the freedom to achieve your potentials, looking for greener pastures in foreign is no longer a reality, those countries are not better off when you consider the challenges you encounter there and here.

“You are encouraged to be positive ambassadors toward advocacy and sensitization against irregular migration that leave the youths vulnerable to all sorts of abuses and death in extreme cases.

“Many are permanently disabled from traumatized tortured resulting in serious mental health challenges,” he said.

Farinloye said that ample opportunities existed for all to thrive and live happily in virtuous and God fearing manners in Nigeria without unnecessarily oneself to undeserved dangers in foreign lands.

He added that the returnees were received by NEMA, along with other sister agencies including the Nigeria Immigration Service, National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and IDPs, Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and the Nigeria Police.

Group kicks as Imansuangbon’s name disappear from Edo national delegates list

Political temper heightened in Esan South East Local Government Area of Edo state, as a social-political pressure group under the aegis of Esan South East for Justice, on Tuesday condemned the removal of Ken Imansuangbon’s name from the national delegate list describing the action as criminal and undemocratic.

Imansuangbon, had last weekend at a congress conducted at Ubiaja, the administrative headquarters of Esan South East Local Government Area, and supervised by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, officials, won with 156 votes against his opponent Giwa Agbomherere, who scored 50 votes.

While appealing to Governor Godwin Obaseki to intervene in the matter, the group also called on INEC, the Police and the DSS to investigate and ensure that those behind the dastardly act are exposed to save the nation’s democracy.

In a statement endorsed by the coordinator of the group in Benin Imafidon Ernest, the group said that the report to disenfranchise the former PDP governorship aspirant from the delegates list is undemocratic and called on the Iyorchia Ayu and the National Working Committee, NWC of the party to call to order the state chairman of the party, Dr Tony Aziegbemi, and his cohorts.

The group also expressed shock that despite the fact that the congress was conducted in a peaceful atmosphere and the people elected their preferred representative to the forthcoming National Convention of the party and the certificate issued to the winner Imansuagbon, some dubious characters went ahead and submitted the fake list to the national leadership of the party and delisted the delegate for Esan South East.

“It is no longer news to our group that the party’s state chairman is out to do the hatchet bidding of his pay masters to the detriment of the people of his locality where he hails from. What a shame.

“We are however using the opportunity to call on the national leadership of the party, Iyorchia Ayu, to intervene quickly against this impunity. It is clear that the action of these perpetrators is fueled by greed, political gangsterism, criminal tendency and selfishness to continue to fuel crisis and division in the state PDP.

“As a group, we are drawing the attention of the leadership of the party to address this anomaly. The people of Esan East have spoken loud and clear last weekend with their votes for choice of Imansuangbon as their delegate.”

In line with the Commandant General’s vision Dr. Ahmed Abubakar Audi, to reposition the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), the State Commandant, Emmanuel Ocheja has reiterated his administrations’ commitment to revamp the operations of the Corps in Osun.

Ocheja made this known while inspecting the construction of a drainage system being done by his administration at the Command Headquarters. He said “as we usher in the rainy season, the adverse effects of erosion on the entrance of Command headquarters at Ayepe, Ilesa road, Osogbo, has caused a lot of damage to the vehicles of the personnel of the Corps and members of the public.” This has led a number of them to using their hard-earned salaries and incomes to repair their cars on a regular basis. Hence, the need to quickly embark on the road construction.

He explained further that the development will militate the destructive effects of erosion on the road.

Speaking further, the Commandant said he has refurbished sixteen operational vehicles and one ambulance in order to enhance effective service delivery.

Ocheja said  the refurbishment will boost the morale of personnel while discharging their statutory duties, adding that the operational vehicles would  be positioned at strategic points within the state.

Ocheja stressed further that  his administration is making frantic efforts to reposition the state Command in order to deliver on the core mandates of the Corps.

The renovation of the State Command’s Public Relations office is another side attraction that cannot be overlooked as the office has been transformed with modern design that draws people’s attention.

Ocheja  emphasized that he is working towards building a strong work force that could tackle and fade out criminal elements in Osun State

He, therefore, expressed the Command’s determination in ensuring that criminals have no hiding place in the state.
