ADRESS DELIVERED BY THE PRESIDENT, STUDENTS ’ UNION GOVERNMENT, PLATEAU STATE UNIVERSITY BOKKOS, COMRADE IZANG AJIK DOGO, ON THE OCCASION OF HIS INAUGURATION ON THURSDAY, MAY 11 , 2017 .
Permit me to start with a sincere and profound gratitude to the Almighty God by whose mercies and might we are all gathered here today, and also to extend the same gratitude to the vice chancellor, the deputy vice chancellor, the registrar, the dean of students affairs, the entire management of this university, my fellow executive members and the entire united students of Plateau State University Bokkos.
Today According to stipulated constitution, I have been sworn in as the president of our dear union, but I see this more as the swearing in of four comrades, coming together to contribute for the betterment of our union, I want to acknowledge the effort put in by all comrades that aspired for this position and re assure you that your meaningful submissions are always welcome. I want to also thank the management for finding time to be in our midst, this is to show the love you have for every plasite and for our union to grow. It is on that note that we see the importance to raise some foundamental observations that relates directly or indirectly to the wellbeing and welfare of the students.
Signing of G.S.T in no distant time, the we the new excos will fall back to the school management, to lias and lobby for the signing of G.S.T courses to be relegated to various departments so as to alliviate the hardship faced by students joining unending cues and missing lectures to effect their signing, we solicit for fair hearing.
The e-library: the hardship faced by students in getting all online processes and assignments done, has really drawn our attention and we will not relent to enter into negotiation with the management until this right of the students is fully restored back to us, we will also seek for the support of the management to nib in the bud the issue of smelling and unkept rest rooms around the school environment, maintainance of our facilities, in the hostel and school environment,
Extension in the opening and closing hours of our library, fair hearing in settling disputes, assistance and collaboration in any possible form to see that the issue of light and water becomes a thing of the past both within the hostels and off campus. Assistance in the hostel tree planting which we will soon embark upon.
General assistance in the welfare of the students.
Our prayers is to run a very peaceful government, that will unite the union and the management,
Thus conscious of our rights as students, we will approach every challenge with dialog.
And make our demands humbly, Students must be treated right and their perspectives must be adequately listen to by management in formulation and implementation of any policy since they are at the receiving ends of any policies made.
However, doing this shouldn’t be perceive as a matter of generosity of the School Authority but an absolute necessity for the attainment of tranquility and in achieving the vision and mission of the founding father of this institutions which we still hold as sacred till today.
As we dissipate our energy more in Consultation and Consolidation, let it be known that our choice of civility is not a sign of weakness, as sincerity is always subject to proof. We will never, never and never negotiate or dialogue out of fear and intimidation and when we negotiate or dialogue, we hope all parties will respect the rules of dialogue/negotiation.
Fellow plasites in your hands, more than mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course. I as an individual have decided that in ensuring our betterment as the president, safeguarding the Unions constitution and keeping to my presidential Oath, will put in all my best if doing this means I should crawl, I will crawl, if I must run, I will run, If I must fly, I will fly as no sacrifice is too big in ensuring that our union moves forward.
And to my fellow plasites let us endeavour to comply with the School Regulations and behave ourselves as intellectuals, to maintain the much needed peace and unity to progress, while we stay focused in achieving our aims and objectives as a Union. Shun Cultism, examination malpractices, substance abuse, sexual harassment and indecent dressing, shun threatening of lecturers and bully of fellow students.
Finally, I solicit for the full support of the School Authority starting from the office of Dean of Students Affair to the vice chancellor, the School Senate and Governing Council, my fellow union in the struggle(NAPPS) and also full corporation of my fellow PLASITES in ensuring that this administration indeed lay the foundation for a UNITED responsible, responsive and intellectually-oriented students’ union that won’t be a bane of development rather a partner for development and academy progress
I appreciate the Dean of Students Affair for painstakingly making today a reality, the vice chancellor and every member of this academy community. I Appreciate the presence of all comrades and fellow plasites seated here.
One of the Student leaders, Com. Mattew Naankin, the Cordinator (002) NANS Zone 2 is ably represented here today and I give kudos to his comradic support at all times.
God in your hands, I commit my destiny!
Thank you and God bless!!!

Alone on this road
Of pain and agony
Dressed in my burden suit
With my bag of tears
Walking along the alley
Thinking of when I would get to the part
commited to love
Ready to walk on
These road to commitment
Commited to love you
As hurdled as the roads were
The water much more coloured
The streets littered with dirt
The face couldn’t hold down the tears freely flowing
A baggage filled with burden
Truthfully, all tragedies happens for a reason Even though reason fail me often
Still, can’t decipher why bad things happen to good people
Sometimes it is hard to keep going
Walking thousands of kilometers isn’t bringing me closer
Colony of derogates
Assiduously against the new order
Lost some to some
Determination is key
God vindicate me
For I love kids
Road to commitment
Rubicon already crossed No matter what Commitme enroute

It is cristal clear that whenever the annals of the Nigerian political configurations is chronicled, it will certainly be incomplete without devoting some crucial chapters of history to the rise and triumph of Dr Sule Lamido, a political gladiator who cut his teeth under the influential tutelage of the late Aminu Kano, progenitor of the Talakawa brand of revolutionary politics.
Down memory lane during the Second Republic, Sule Lamido was a member of the House of Representatives under the banner of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) where he slugged it out with his capitalist-oriented colleagues, particularly the NPN and the UPN political parties and it was during this period that the youthful Lamido was able to construct an enduring coalition of like-minded political confederates throughout the length and breadth of the nation.
Infact, this rainbow coalition of sorts cut across sectional, sectarian and linguistic groups regardless of tongue and creed and this marked him out as a nationalistic.
No doubt, the true test of Sule Lamido s patriotic mindset was during the pivotal struggle to actualise the mandate of the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential elections, Chief M.K.O. Abiola, During the course of the campaign, it was Lamido working with his political soulmate, the late Abubakar Rimi that crucially sold Abiola’s candidacy to the sprawling Kano metropolis and by extension, the Northern part of the country resulting in the resounding defeat of Abiola’s rival, Bashir Tofa even in his home state of Kano.
Despite attempts to ethnicise the June 12 mandate by Chief Abiola’s antagonists and supporters alike, a principled Lamido remained above the fray while engaging in a determined struggle to actualize Abiola’s mandate.
To this day, Sule Lamido has never withdrawn his support for democracy and the Chief Abiola’s mandate even though those issues have been overtaken by political events, alignments, and realignments across the Nigerian landscape. However, a farsighted and courageous Lamido was determined to see the end of military dictatorship and enthrone democratic system of governance throughout the land.
He astutely led like-minded group of eminent persons to form the G9 group which included the late Abubakar Rimi, late Iyorchia Ayu, late Bola Ige, late Sen. Ella, late Solomon Lar, late Dr. Alex Ekwueme, Adamu Chiroma, Prof. Jerry Gana, Sule Lamido, etc. leading to the birth of the G18, then G34 and later the PDP. Therefore, as a way of assuaging the south west part of the country over the annulment of the June 12 polls widely believed to be won by Chief MKO Abiola, an altruistic Lamido and his cofactor brought in Olusegun Obasanjo, former military head of state as the 1999 general election’s presidential candidate of the PDP. Obasanjo as president appointed Lamido as the minister of Foreign Affairs where the latter assiduously pushed the image of Nigeria as a pariah state bore fruit with the lifting of the country’s suspension from the commonwealth bilateral and multilateral trade deals between Nigeria and foreign trade partners.
In continuation of his successful and ever glaring political career, during the 2007 general elections, Sule Lamido contested and won a landslide victory in the governorship elections paving the way for his transformative revolution in Jigawa State in the health, educational, agriculture, manpower development, road infrastructure, power, water provision and youth and women empowerment spheres within his eight year tenure.
Lamido as a grassroots-oriented leader did not waste time in moving swiftly towards delivering crucial democratic dividends to the people. Various contracts were awarded and executed by the state government for the construction of roads, schools, hospitals, dams, airport, water boreholes and what have you.
In fact, Jigawa State from 2007 to 2015 resembled a giant construction site with a lot of landmark projects being executed for the welfare of the people and the state was envied and had remained a model to his contemporary governors.
The construction of the epochal Dutch International Airport by the Lamido government with the limited resources at its disposal will go down in history as one of the most enduring feats of any state governor in our present democratic continuum. Lamido has been ranked as one of the most transparent and exemplary state governors by Transparency International, a global anti- corruption watchdog.
Indeed despite the orchestrated campaign of calumny and witch-hunting against Sule Lamido, it is self-evident that his towering profile continues to rise daily to the chagrin and dismay of his transgressors.
Shina Rambo is a former bandit who terrorised South-West Nigeria in the 1990s. After serving jail-time for his crimes, he was converted by an evangelist and became a Christian evangelical pastor. Shina Rambo now Mathew Oluwanifemi was a name that sent shivers down the spine of people who lived in the South West of Nigeria and even outside Nigeria, like Benin Republic and neighborhood, in the 1990s.
He was a hardened criminal, a terror and killer, one whom men of the security agencies will never forget in a haste.
A hugely built of about 6 ft 5inch, well built, dark skinned and sweltering eyes, he carried out his operations, like a movie, in the broad day light, with sophisticated weapons, and bullet belts and explosives strapped roundabout him. He specialized in robbing exotic cars on highways and robbing banks. Nothing could stop him, not even security operatives, he was totally invincible. He was Shina Rambo!
He was born in the year 1958 to a military man who was a bad egg in the service. His father was from Abeokuta in Ogun state, but his mother was a native of Sabongida–Ora in Edo state. His father had over 18 wives. He recalls, “I remembered when I was about 7 years old, my father came home with a lot of money, foreign currencies, with blood on it, and they were using something like a woman’s scarf to wipe it, then I asked him, is this an animal’s blood, or human blood? But he wouldn’t answer me, they were just drinking, smoking, and merry making.
INITIATION INTO ROBBERY
”Shina was already indoctrinated into the underworld by his father at a tender age of 7 without him knowing it, as he would sit in front of his son, to dismantle and assemble all sorts of weapons and then polishing them in preparation for an operation.
This went on for so long till one day, little Shina, entered into his father’s room while he had stepped into the toilet, and saw a dismembered gun on the floor. He sat down in front of it, and bit by bit, he had assembled it effortlessly in no time at all. His father came out of the toilet, and saw his son, with a loaded gun in his hands.
Shina flashed back and said, “That day my father was so disappointed, that he wanted to kill me, he grabbed the gun from my hand and shot straight at me, but I miraculously escaped out of the room. Then he waited for me to be less alert at night he came to my room with a machete and tried to behead me, but once again, I escaped, but the machete caught my left leg (he rolled up his trouser to show us the large scar, that made everyone sighed in pity). It cut me so deep I thought I was never going to walk again.
That day I knew I had graduated, all that was left was to pull the trigger, and I was so eager.
Shina Rambo became so notorious in no time, and was hell bent on succeeding in his career as an armed robber, that he went through any length to secure spiritual powers for fortification.
To the extent of pounding over 27 live new born babies in the mortar with a pestle, cutting off about 100 human tongues and cooking them to eat, visiting the spiritual river called river of life in Ogoja, Cross Rivers State, living in an Iroko tree for days, and sleeping in the cemetery.
He was given a spiritual wife who always followed him for any operation, she dressed like an Alhaja, people thought she was human, but she was a spirit, that was why they never saw her face. He said she was his personal driver, that she could drive from Nigeria to Cotonou, in the speed of light.
Hear him. ”I was involved in so many rituals, that I can’t start naming them now, I was so powerful, I went underground, inside trees that looked like a city, a lot of beautiful houses inside the tree, I had my own too. I went into a river called River of life in Ogoja, where a lot of politicians and wealthy men used to come.
I had several personalities, I could change my form whenever I wanted to, that’s why the police were busy killing innocent people, and thought they were killing Shina Rambo.The 9 herbalists that gave me that power, I became stronger than them, one day I went to their shrines, and killed all of them, so that they don’t reveal my secrets.
I had too many powers; my spiritual wife could drive any car in this world or out of it, no police vehicle, or anyone for that matter, could ever chase and catch me during an operation. She was out of this world, and when she had completed her operation, they took her away from me. I could give anything to get powers, and the elders knew, so they also gave me anything I wanted. I once beheaded hundred men, and gave them the heads fresh, they were so happy with me that they made me invincible.
No matter the kind of bullet you shot at me, it was just like pure water on my body. I could give anything to get power, but of all the things I did to get power,the one that still breaks my heart the most, is sleeping with my mother. My father is dead now, but my mother is still alive, and she lives with me she is 85 years old. Whenever I set my eyes on her, I just start crying. I can’t bear it.
He would go to police stations, in broad daylight and kill every policeman there, drive to check points and open fire on every policeman on duty, he didn’t like the police at all, and was never afraid of them, he operated in broad day light armed to the teeth looking like Johny Rambo, in the popular Sylvester Stalone movie, “First Blood”.
He once robbed 40 exotic cars in one day and drove all of them in a convoy, from Lagos to Cotonou, unstopped. He was powerful; he was wealthy, and impenetrable. He was a tin god, apparently belched from the very arroyo hell, we all dreaded him.
He had a wife and three children, but he lost all of them in one day during a bloody police raid whilst he was away on operation. His wife was his stabilizing factor his life changed afterwards. He says “my wife was everything to me, I was forbidden by the elders to sleep with any other woman apart from her.
I could gather about 50 women around me in a hotel, and they will just be playing with me. We would smoke, drink, and sniff cocaine, I will give them money but I will never sleep with them. I will go back home to my wife and sleep with her. That was why the police never caught me. She knew my job, she knew what I was and I never left them alone at night, I operated in the day time and go back home to my family at night.
I had everything, I was very wealthy, I sometimes spent 50 million naira in a day, I did that a lot. There was one day that we were coming from an operation and it seemed as if my powers were going to fail me, the police and the army were almost closing in on us, so we had to drive into a crowd and threw millions of naira in the air, there was commotion, everybody was busy picking naira notes even the police, until we escaped.
I was too rich, but anything the devil gives you never lasts, he will collect more from you, it’s only the devil that will give you Fila, (cap) and ask for Iro and Buba (wrapper and top). I lost everything, all the money, my family; I was so powerful the police couldn’t catch me but I lost it all. I had to surrender myself to the police and I was arrested and jailed for 11 years.
While I was serving my jail term in Agodi prisons, Ibadan, Prophet T.O Obadare came visiting, and having been encouraged several times by the Christian brothers and sisters in the prison to give my life to Christ, he prayed for me and converted me, and changed my name to Oluwanifemi, and it was so miraculous, the next day I woke up and started speaking in tongues. It was during the time of President Olusegun Obasanjo, that we were granted freedom.
His salvation is indeed one of grace, as not many had the rare privilege of atoning and having God forgive their sins.
Today, the Senate passed the Electoral Act No. 6 2010 (Amendment) Bill 2017 into law. The passage of this Bill in the Senate is a bold, innovative and common sense step on Electoral Reforms designed to guarantee free, fair and credible elections in Nigeria. Without much ado, these are some of the highlights of the Bill:
1. There shall now be full biometric accreditation of voters with Smart Card Readers and/or other technological devices, as INEC may introduce for elections from time to time.
2. Presiding Officers must now instantly transmit accreditation data and results from Polling Units to various collation centers. Presiding officer who contravene this shall be imprisoned for at least 5 years (no option of fine).
3. All Presiding Officer must now first record accreditation data and polling results on INEC’s prescribed forms before transmitting them. The data/result recorded must be the same with what they transmitted.
4. INEC now has unfettered powers to conduct elections by electronic voting.
5. Besides manual registers, INEC is now mandated to keep Electronic registers of voters.
6. INEC is now mandated to publish voters’ registers on its official website(s) for public scrutiny at least 30 days before a general election and any INEC staff who is responsible for this but fails to act as prescribed shall be liable on conviction to 6 months’ imprisonment.
7. INEC is now mandated to keep a National Electronic Register of Election Results as a distinct database or repository of polling unit by polling unit results for all elections conducted by INEC.
8. Collation of election result is now mainly electronic, as transmitted unit results will help to determine final results on real time basis.
9. INEC is now mandated to record details of electoral materials – quantities, serial numbers used to conduct elections (for proper tracking).
10. A political party whose candidate dies after commencement of an election and before the declaration of the result of that election now has a 14-day window to conduct a fresh primary in order for INEC to conduct a fresh election within 21 days of the death of the party’s candidate;
11. Political parties’ Polling Agents are now entitled to inspect originals of electoral materials before commencement of election and any Presiding Officer who violates this provision of the law shall be imprisoned for at least1 year.
12. No political party can impose qualification/disqualification criteria, measures or conditions on any Nigerian for the purpose of nomination for elective offices, except as provided in the 1999 Constitution.
13. The election of a winner of an election can no longer be challenged on grounds of qualification, if the he (winner) satisfied the applicable requirements of sections 65, 106, 131 or 177 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) and he is not, as may be applicable, in breach of sections 66, 107, 137 or 182 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999. [For example, a person’s election cannot be challenged on the ground that he did not pay tax, as this is not a qualifying condition under the Constitution.]
14. All members of political parties are now eligible to determine the ad-hoc delegates to elect candidates of parties in indirect primaries. The capacity of party executives to unduly influence or rig party primaries has been reasonably curtailed, if not totally removed.
15. Parties can no longer impose arbitrary nomination fees on political aspirants. The Bill passed prescribes limits for each elective office as follows:
(a) One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira (N150,000) for a Ward Councillorship aspirant in the FCT;
(b) Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira (N250,000) for an Area Council Chairmanship aspirant in the FCT;
(c) Five Hundred Thousand Naira (N500,000) for a House of Assembly aspirant;
(d) One Million Naira (N1,000,000) for a House of Representatives aspirant;
(e) Two Million Naira (N2,000,000) for a Senatorial aspirant;
(f) Five Million naira (N5,000,000) for a Governorship aspirant; and
(g) Ten Million Naira (N10,000,000) for a Presidential aspirant.
16. Relying on the powers of the National Assembly in Paragraph 11 of Part II (Concurrent Legislative List) of the Second Schedule (Legislative Powers) to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended), the Senate also passed measures reforming procedures regulating Local Government Elections. State Independent Electoral Commissions can no longer conduct elections that do not meet minimum standards of credibility.
17. Any INEC official who disobeys a tribunal order for inspection of electoral materials shall be imprisoned for 2 years, without an option of a fine.
