Lagos State Police Command aressted one of the suspect

The protesters had gathered at Lekki Roundabout in front of Lekki Peninsula Scheme 1 gate to commence the protest around 9:30 am when they were initially stopped by the police.After the protest was allowed to move ahead by the police, the hoodlums confronted the protesters in front of Med Plus on Admiralty Way and asked them to turn back towards the Admiralty Circle Toll Plaza .

Despite the huge police presence that outnumbered protesters, the hoodlums started harassing demonstrators by smashing the phones of people who were taking pictures as well as the cameras of media organisations covering the event.

It took agitated complaints from the crowd before the police intervened and arrested some of the trouble makers.

Friday’s protest was organised by the Eti-Osa Development Forum which has spent the entire week mobilising support via WhatsApp and other social media platforms.

During the protest, demonstrators called for a reversal of the new rates » and some even urged the state government to scrap the toll gates entirely.

Protest cut short by Police

Despite promising to stage protests at the affected toll gates on Friday, protesters were dissuaded by the police from disrupting activities at the toll gates.

Protesters marched halfway down Admiralty Way and turned in front of Domino’s Pizza to head for the Admiralty Circle Toll Plaza for the main protest.

However, after reaching the Lekki Roundabout, they were advised against proceeding as police officers appeared to withdraw their protection.

After a few agitated discussions between the organisers of the protest and the police, they decided to end it at the Roundabout where they promised to organise another protest if there are no changes.

During the protest, protesters displayed placards with different inscriptions like “Say No to Lekki toll hike” , “Switch off your ignition”, “Ambode save our souls”, among others.

Protesters also chanted statements like, “No more toll gate”, “Toll gate is a fraud”, “We want no toll” during their march.

Music of the late afro-beat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti was played loudly from a truck that trailed behind the protesters.

Police warning

The Lagos State police command had warned Lagosians to shelve the planned protest.

“It has come to the knowledge of the Lagos State Police Command that some residents of Lekki/Ajah areas of the state are planning to protest the increase in toll fare by the management of Lekki Toll Plaza”, a statement from the police read.

“While the Command recognizes the right of citizens to carry out peaceful protest, the police will not standby and watch protesters take laws into their hands nor allow miscreants to hijack the protest.

“The Command is using this opportunity to inform and warn the group planning this protest for tomorrow, Friday, the 9th of February, 2018, not to block the Highway, the Expressway or any road for that matter.

“All those who want to participate in the protest must organize themselves in a peaceful manner in line with public protection and assembly law.

“The Command would not hesitate to use reasonable force to prevent any group of persons from blocking the road or breaching the public peace.

“The Command however, wishes to advise all to go about their lawful business peacefully on the Island and indeed every part of the state as adequate security is in place throughout the state”.

LCC’s toll hike

The LCC had implemented an increase in the tariff that vehicle owners will pay to gain access through its Admiralty Circle Toll Plaza and the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge Toll Plaza » on February 1, 2018.

According to the company’s Managing Director,

Mohammed Hassan, the increment is a reaction to the “current business realities and increasing cost of operation.”

He said the current economic and business realities » in the country means the company has been hit with increased cost of operations and maintenance of its loan obligations.

Reverting to old rates

The Eti-Osa Development Forum is demanding a

“revert to the old rates and possible downward review in the light of biting economic realities and what obviously has been recouped by the concessionaire thus far.

“We also insist on a transparent disclosure of all financial dealings, audited report and appropriation relating to the Lekki Concession Company tolling contracts and the current status of the Lagos State government having bought back the Admiralty Tolling Plaza contract in 2013 for N25.3B.

“We call on his Excellency, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode to intervene and proffer immediate panacea » on the increased, excruciating fares”.

Vote Alhaji Dalhatu Momoh Sheriff for Kogi central senatorial District. Dalhatu 2019

PROFILE OF ALHAJI DALHATU MOMOH SAKI (DALHATU SHERIFF)Alhaji Dalhatu Momoh Saki was born in 1979 in Bariki Ward of Okene, Okene Local Government Area of Kogi State to the family of Late Alhaji Momoh Saki and Hajia Habibat Saki. He is from a typical polygamous family. He has many siblings. His mother is the second of his father’s wives. Alhaji Dalhatu Momoh Saki started his early education in 1985 in the famous St. John Primary School, Agassa in Okene LGA. In 1991 he enrolled for his College education in Anyava Community Secondary School, Anyava, Agassa-Okene. His zeal for qualitative education saw him change school and he later concluded his secondary education at the Okene Secondary School, Okene, where he sat for his SSCE Exams in 1997. 

Vote Alhaji Momoh Dalhatu Sheriff for kogi central senatorial District

He came out with flying colours. Applying the entrepreneurial skills inherited from his enterprising parents, Alhaji Dalhatu Momoh Saki mastered the art of trading and had a financial breakthrough at a very tender age by going into business immediately after his secondary education. In 1999, after a long sojourn in the business world, with his quest for continuous education, he then proceeded to the University of Abuja, Abuja to study Political Science, where he graduated with Bachelor Degree in Political Science. His investments portfolio cut across the Real Estate Development, Quarry, Communication and General Contracting. His business/investment prowess in these sectors have helped facilitate gainful employment opportunities for a number of unemployed graduates and youths particularly Kogi State indigenes. Alhaji Dalhatu Momoh Saki can also be considered a philanthropist per excellence. He currently sponsors hundreds of Kogi State undergraduates in various higher institutions within and outside the country. His strong drive for community development has inspired him to invest in various community projects over the years. He loves traveling and meeting people.

Amongst his businesses and investments include: Sheriff Combined Business established initially as enterprise in 1998 and later registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission as a Limited Company in 2007; SIL Estate Nigeria Limited established in 2009; SIL Quarry Nigeria Limited (WA) established also in 2009; Final Touch Paint established in 2010; ADS Communications, established in 2013; and then Clifturn Host & Investment established in 2008.

Our land is backward. Our youths are not progressing. The reason is not farfetched; our representative at the upper chamber of the National Assembly has failed us. Constituency allowance are given to members to develop their constituency and constituents, we have not seen and felt the impact of such in Kogi Central. Our roads are bad, no clean water for our people. The youths are not empowered and thereby, staying idle makes them easily influenced for ill vices. 

Alhaji Dalhatu Momoh Sheriff and Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello (executive Governor of Kogi State)

​ Kogi Central should ordinarily be the most developed Senatorial District in Kogi State considering the vast human and natural resources and its enviable location in the state as the Centre. It is however sad to know that Ebiraland is the least developed Senatorial District in the Kogi State, due to bad leadership and bad representation at the National Level. It is sad that, the Senatorial District have been over time labeled with bad names, littered with bad roads, dilapidated schools with very low educational standards, moribund health facilities, lack of infrastructural development, dirty and stinking environments, huge unemployment rate with high crime rates etc. Ebiraland is in dire need of an honest, dynamic and purposeful Senatorial Representative that can lure investments into the land, move the land from its present pitiable condition to an enviable position it deserves. It is in the light of this, that Alhaji Dalhatu Momoh Saki is offering to serve his people as the next Senator representing Kogi Central Senatorial District. Alhaji Dalhatu Momoh Saki can be totalled up in one sentence, he is a young man with vision, capacity, enviable character and ready to serve his land, Ebiraland and Kogi State in general.

He drew his philosphy of leadership and representation from Alan Siegel, who once affirmed in his famous quote that, ‘‘Representative government demands an ongoing conversation between legislators and constituents.’’ Also, Edmund Burke sufficed that, ‘‘when leaders choose to make themselves bidders at an auction of popularity, their talent, in the construction of the state, will be of no service. They will become flatters instead of legislators; the instruments, not the guides, of the people.’’ 

Alhaji Dalhatu Momoh Sheriff Saki Kogi State APC Senatorial Aspirant

What do we want our legislators of the 21st century to be, of course we want them to be effective, to be good. Of course we know there will be challenges, which is to remain true to the fundamental purpose of representative democracy and legislative system. 

What is the harm of doing the right thing? What is the harm of doing their job as legislators and making sure that their constituents do not suffer? We are sure Alhaji Dalhatu Sheriff will direct his attention above all to the education and empowerment of the youth; the neglect of education and the youths do harm to the constitution. Let’s support Alhaji Dalhatu Momoh Saki for the race of Kogi State central Senatorial District.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s action against herdsmen

President Muhammadu Buhari

​The President said he is doing his best to ensure the killer-herdsmen are brought to book, adding that it is unfair for Nigerians to think that he just sits in an air-conditioned office and watch the killings go on.Buhari has been accused of being lackadaisical in handling the herdsmen crisis, which has so far claimed over 100 lives.

The President was also criticised for failing to visit Benue » , where over 70 persons were massacred by the herdsmen.

Speaking when he received some Catholic bishops at the presidential villa in Abuja on Thursday, February 8, 2018, President Buhari condemned the killings in Benue, Adamawa, Taraba, and Zamfara states.

He also assured that security operatives will ensure prosecution of perpetrators and all those found with illegal arms in the affected areas.

He said, “The impression created that I was sitting in an air-conditioned office and home, enjoying myself while these things happened, is dishonest.

“At every step, I have tried to foresee these problems because I have the experience as a former military officer who commanded three out of the four divisions of the Nigerian army, in Lagos, Ibadan and Jos.

“I am quite aware of the problems we have and I am doing my best to get law enforcement agencies to be on alert.”

The President also clarified the controversial ‘grazing colony’ policy of the Federal Government aimed at resolving the herdsmen crisis, saying that it is not meant to colonise any part of the country.

He said the intention of government is to create grazing locations for cattle rearers, which has now been “misconstrued as another form of colonization” .

The President promised the Catholic Bishops that the government will continue to explore all opportunities and support initiatives to ensure peace and stability in restive areas.
