Youths under the auspices of the National Youth Council of Nigeria on Monday blocked the Suleja-Minna Highway to protest the deplorable state of roads in Niger State, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.

The angry youths were said to have also blocked the Bida-Minna Road, forcing motorists to take alternative routes to their destinations.

One of the coordinators of the protest, Mohammad Etsu, said, “We will not stop this protest for good roads until the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, address us.”

Police and other security operatives fired teargas to disperse the youths but they remained adamant.

Dankwambo mocks El-Rufai as he kneels, begs Kogi people to forgive Kogi governor

Published

on

Former governor of Gombe State, Ibrahim Dankwambo, has mocked Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State for begging Nigerians to vote Governor Yahaya Bello.

DAILY POST reports that El-Rufai was down on his kneels at the All Progressives Congress, APC, mega rally in Lokoja, on Thursday, begging the people of the State to forgive Governor Yahaya Bello of whatever wrong he had done and vote him back to power.

El-Rufai, who is the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress Gubernatorial Campaign in Kogi State was quoted as saying, “Many people say Yahaya Bello is young and that he has fought many people. For every one that the governor has offended, I am asking all of you to forgive him. He is young, he is supposed to make mistakes.

“When you are young, you make mistakes, but you are supposed to learn from him. On his behalf, I am kneeling down to beg all of you to forgive Yahaya Bello if he has offended you.”

Reacting Dankwambo, on his Twitter page wrote, ”How do you beg for forgiveness for a governor owing 30 months salaries and who cannot point to one project in 4yrs?”
