Southern Zone Youths Attack Grace Bent, “We Threw You Out, Not Fintiri”

News RendezvousA group, Concerned Southern Zone Youths have fired back at the former the Senator representing Southern Adamawa, Grace Bent, over her attacks on the state chairman of the PDP, AT Shehu, saying, her attacks on the Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri and AT Shehu were unnecessary because they did not throw her out but that they the people of the southern Zone responsible for her failure to return to office because they are done with her.The concerned youths said, they through their power of choice, decided to do away with her over arrogant and Demigod attitude she constantly display, the same character she is displaying now in her attacks on the governor and the state party chairman.This is contained in a press statement issued to Newsmen, and signed by the groups chairman, Pwadeno Micheal, Monday, in Yola, Adamawa state.The Concerned Southern Zone Youths said, “Grace Bent, is making frantic moves to blow her trumpet of superiority over the men of Southern zone Adamawa state in her arrogant use of words aimed at the Adamawa state PDP chairman which is a clear demonstration of what led to her fall.”Her response was a total departure from the truth and certainly another display of the egoistic tendencies and lack of humility befitting of public servant that Grace Bent is supposed to be.”The group pointed out that, “Her claims to have single-handedly brought the chairman to office is one of her failed attempts to project herself as the alpha woman that dominated the Numan zone.”But to the credit of the southern Zone, though Bent not biologically daughter of the area and with no discrimination of gender, because the zone has no problem with women taking their rightful places of leadership, she was able to win elections and it is disturbing to hear her make such outrageous claims and attempts to assassinate other people’s character just because she could not get what she wants.”They added that, “It is so funny to hear a self-aclaimed ‘political gladiator’ in Adamawa fuming over lost elections forgetting that in the past concerned citizens kept quiet back then in the PDP owing to the fact that the youruba connection at the national played a dynamic role in imposing her at the southern zone up here in the North contrary to the interest of the Numan federation elders wishes.”The structure of the PDP as at that time was that purely the Yoruba connection.“You cannot brush aside the issue of indigene and non-indigene (which means exactly what the coinage means and you know it exist loudest in the Yoruba land where it is completely impossible to grant a northern woman married to a Yoruba man the privilege given to you) and your arrogance suggests that you have taken our magnanimity for granted.”Quoting the constitution does not invalidate the principle of indigenous interest of the people to want a biological son or daughter vie for such elective positions as in Section 42 sub-section 1.”And your ignorance of the shift in status quo of the events is an embarrassment to the Concerned Southern Zone youths.”The group argues that, “We all agree that the Constitution and the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended) regarding qualifications for election exist but that is not the issue today.”We are saying take a bow and stop pushing blames as though we the Southern zone are enslaved to you, there was voting, there was an election and we threw you out simple.”One thing is true about us in Adamawa state, we are endowed with reason and conscience and we act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood, that was what informed our first step in giving you the position.The group contended that, “Why can’t this same support and brotherhood be applied to support our Northern women in their own biological state?”Also I ask her, can our women married in Osun state, ever be allowed to teach in a state school in her state?”Well we are homely in Adamawa and will continue to give opportunities to all people but the decision to stop you is the people’s choice.”The party did not want to loose the seat so we went ahead, mobilized and voted, but we the people have overturned it to allow for equal representation of our zone by one of our own biological inclined indigene to fill the space.”The reason being we have learnt our lesson that our liberal tendencies out here in the north are not applicable to our married women down there where you biologically hail from (Osun state).”Please your game plan has been exposed and we want you to face it and stop pushing blames on others, today our Senator is Binos, and we willingly voted him in.”

Adamawa Senator Calls for Removal of Service Chiefs Over Security Collapse – As He Reflects On His 1yr in Office

News Rendezvous

The senator representing southern Adamawa, Binos Dauda Yeroe, has called for the immediate removal of the service chiefs in the country over a nationwide security implosion.
Binos pointed out that the security chiefs were only successful in supervising over an era of wanton killings and mayhem and that their long and unnecessary stay, has only led to frustration within the ranks of military accompanied by barrenness of ideas to deal with the security threats crippling the country.
Binos made remarks over the weekend during an interview with some selected Newsmen at Mayo Belwa, Adamawa state.
Binos said that the service chiefs have become like “thin gods” and are bereft of any idea to deal with the security situation bedeviling the country.
Binos explained that, “The security chiefs have over stayed and have become like thin gods.
“The national assembly felt deeply about the security issues bedevlling the country and we had cause to invite the security chiefs.
“We also had cause to dedicate two days to debate the issue of insecurity in the country and at the end of the day we set up an adhoc committee chaired by the senate leader which met and came up with resolutions.
“And these resolutions have been passed to the executive and if it requires funding, the senate would ensure it would be done.”
The senator strongly insisted that, “In my own contribution, I observed that the service chiefs who were appointed since 2015 have been allowed to stay in office even with the increased insecurity we are having in the country.
“So, they have become like thin gods in their services, demoralising the upcoming officers beneath them.
“If you have been in the office for five to six years, the military have a tradition called age on rank, which would require for your retirement by attaining a particular age or rank, even if you are still strong and good.
“It simply means, if the officers ahead of you don’t leave, you cannot grow.
“Because of that, for example, all the mates of the service chiefs have left the service leaving them with officers that are by far their juniors creating a situation where even if things are not going well, they may not be able to look them in the eye and tell them the truth for fear that they may loose their jobs.
“There is the urgent need to remove this service chiefs and bring in new people with new ideas.
“They say if you keep doing the same over and over and expect a different result, that would be the definition of insanity.”
Speaking on the perennial flooding bedevlling his constituency he said, “The major cause of flooding here in the Benue basin is the release of water from the Lagdo dam in Cameroon.
“Our communities were affected by these floodings in 2012 and in 2019.
“We have been working on a permanent solution with my colleague in the senate on the need for the construction of a buffer Dam, most likely in the central part of Adamawa.
“Because it affects the entire river basin of the Benue, stretching from Taraba north, Northern part of Benue state and the central and southern parts of Adamawa.
“So, it is not something that I can do alone, so I and Sen.Binani, will work to ensure that the project is included in the 2021 budget.
“I will work closely with Senator Binani and we will be counting on the support of other senators from Taraba north and Benue north to achieve this goal.”
Reflecting on his committement as a legislator to his constituents, Binos outlined some of the progress recorded in his constituency saying, “I will like to reflect on the specific promises I made to my constituents while campaigning for this office.
“During my campaign, I promised that I will represent them effectively, fighting for their cause and speaking on their behalf before the national assembly and if there is anything that is legitimately theirs, I will fight and ensure they have it.
“And based on these, I think I have tried to keep to my campaign promises as best as I can.
” While in the senate, I have been involved in a lot of motions in the Senate especially the motion to convert the university into conventional university so that it can offer courses like medicine, I co-sponsored that motion.
“And during the incident of flooding in the state, where relief materials were distributed but was not extended to Adamawa south and when I was not making progress in my direct approach to the Director General of NEMA, I tendered a motion before the Senate that compelled him to distribute relief materials to my zone.
“Recently also, I tendered a motion before the Senate on the recent conflict affecting my zone in Tingno, where people were displaced, demanding that relief materials be sent.
“I have also re-presented the bill forwarded by my predecessor for the establishment of the School of Forestry in Toungo and the School of Mining and Geophysics at Guyuk, and it has been read the first time.
“In the 2019 budget, my predecessor had included the provision of motorised borehole and money were not released until after the 2020 budget presentation by the president.
“We were at Demsa, Numan and Jada to supervise these projects.
“After pursuing the funds for these projects, I ensured they were situated where there are needs for the water and where survey shows there are sufficient water.
“I have also constructed two boreholes at Wuro Abbo and Bille as part of my personal contributions to my community.”
Binos added that, “I have also organised two successful medical outreaches, one at Demsa and another at Ganye, to provide quality healthcare interventions for members of my constituency who could not afford the cost of the Medicare as we all know, even the president when he was ill, he had to take time to get medical help, so health is a priority project for me.
“I have also set up an entrepreneurship scheme for youths in my constituency where five participants were drawn from each of the nine local governments that constitute my zone and have been trained in various entrepreneurship skills and some of them have already accessed grants to start their businesses.
“The idea is to encourage self reliance instead of waiting endlessly for government jobs that are no longer there.
“Because even the most successful enterprenuers globally, started small.
“I have also launched a scholarship scheme for students in my zone, my goal is to sponsor at least three hundred students at various tertiary institutions within my four year term as a senator.
“This year, we aim to enlist about fifty students for the scholarship.
“We have already issued out the forms, we would process them and determine the eligible candidates.”
