News Release: ADF Statement On The Recent Spate Of Massacres In Plateau State, Nigeria

With deep sense of shock and indignation, the Alaigbo Development Foundation (ADF) hereby expresses her unreserved and unequivocal condemnation of the recent killings in villages in Barkin Ladi, Riyom, Mangu and Jos South Local Government Areas of Plateau State.

Article: Buhari's Second Term Plot Worse Than June 12


By SKC Ogbonnia

The title of this statement is definitely strident. But the angst must not be misconstrued as a view that President Muhammadu Buhari is worse than the cabal that annulled June 12 or Mr. Sani Abacha that attempted to legitimize the national curse. None of that!  In fact, I have remained overjoyed that God used All Progressive Congress (APC) and Buhari to rescue Nigeria from the ruins under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). The seemingly venom has to do with the fact that, instead of emulating Nelson Mandela to quit the stage when the ovation still echoes, President Buhari appears to be imitating the likes of Robert Mugabe to cling on to power by hook or crook. In a nutshell, Buhari’s bid for a second term in office at this stage of national development portends long-term consequences worse than the annulment of June 12 election of 1993 won by MKO Abiola, an injustice the state under Buhari is trying so hard to atone.
Here are why:

News Release: Why We Endorsed The Appointment Professor Charles Quaker Dokubo

Professor Dokubo

As at the time of Professor Charles Dokubo’s appointment as Coordinator of the Amnesty Programme, you will agree that there was increasing dissent, frustration, and rumblings across the rank and file of former agitators and leaders of the struggle for the liberation and emancipation of the Niger Delta.
