We’ve spent enough fighting insurgency – Mark

Senate President David Mark yesterday took stock of the enormous resources pumped into fighting insurgency in some states, declaring that, “enough is enough.” He disclosed this during  a tour of his Benue South senatorial district at the weekend.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Paul Mumeh, Senator Mark also restated his resolve and total commitment to humanity and the nation even as he  bemoaned the unabating socio-political  and security challenges  facing the country.
Senator  Mark urged Nigerians to use this festive season to seek the face of the Almighty God to overcome the lingering security challenges.
Represented by his wife, Helen, the Senate President urged the people to preach love and peaceful co-existence,  urging prayers for leaders to be guided by God’s wisdom in piloting the affairs of Nigeria.
“My visit is not only to felicitate with you this season, but to also remind you as patriotic Nigerians, the need to seek God’s intervention in our country. We have witnessed series of violence. We have lost many of our loved ones on account of violent attacks.
“It is high time we say enough is enough. Our resources are hugely spent on security in order to maintain law and order across Nigeria. These resources would have been channeled to some other developmental needs. With God’s  wisdom and guidance, Nigeria will overcome her challenges and make the nation a better place for all,” he said.
Mark also pledged: “I will not deviate from the service to our fatherland and I urge every Nigerian to be part of this crusade. All we need is to return to God and He will answer us.”
Elated by the large  turn-out in this year’s constituency annual visit, he emphasized that the food items including bags of rice and clothes be distributed across the wards in the senatorial district and advised that they should be shared specifically to  the less-privileged, widows and the aged.
In their remarks, chairmen of the nine councils, who spoke through the Chairman of Otukpo Local Government, Dr. Innocent Onuh, commended Senator Mark for the love of his people and pledged to make service delivery to the citizens the cornerstone of their administrations.

INEC Says Ongoing Election Campaigns Violate Law; Threatens Action.


By SaharaReporters, New York

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has warned that the ongoing electoral campaigns by individuals and political parties violate the law and threaten Nigeria’s democracy.

In a press statement today, Kayode Robert Idowu, the Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman Attahiru Jega, drew attention to the fact that campaign posters are being indiscriminately displayed, and election broadcasts being aired outside the statutory provision for campaigning towards elections into various elective offices.

“This trend is unhealthy and portends ill for the political process,” the statement said.  “Indeed, it is a threat to Nigeria’s democracy.”
INEC reminded all players of the law, in terms of Section 99(1) of the Electoral Act 2010 (As Amended), which states:
“For the purpose of this Act, the period of campaigning in public by every political party shall commence 90 days before polling day and end 24 hours prior to that day.”

It advised political parties to note that campaigning outside this provision is a violation of the law, and the Commission will not hesitate to apply appropriate sanctions, calling on security agents to apprehend violators.

INEC, which is often thought to favour the ruling Peoples Democratic Party and its officials, did not say why it is not taking any action against those who have already violated the law.

Pentagon says insider book on bin Laden raid contains classified information.


WASHINGTON – A Pentagon official says a former Navy SEAL’s insider account of the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden contains classified information.

Pentagon press secretary George Little told reporters Tuesday that an official review of the book, “No Easy Day,” determined that it reveals what he called “sensitive and classified” information. He was not more specific but said the book should have been submitted to the Pentagon before publication for a formal review of potential disclosures.

A lawyer for the author, Matt Bissonnette, has disputed that he was legally obliged to have the book screened before publication.

Little would not say what damage may result from the book’s revelations.

Little said the Pentagon has not taken steps to stop the book from being sold on U.S. military installations.
