Now that all political parties in our noble nation that are duly registered by the Nigerian political umpire, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), have chosen their presidential candidates and now in frenzy searches for marketable complement to be the next Nigerian Vice President by 2023.

After a thorough research based on Qualities, Competence, Nationalism and Patriotism of a suitable candidate through out the length and breadth of Nigeria by various non partisan associations such as Coalition of Ex-Militant Generals in Niger Delta , National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) , Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), National Association of University Students (NAUS) have thrown their heavy weight behind DR IBRAHIM BELLO DAUDA, who just clocked Fifty years in age few days ago has passed the various political litmus testes in all ramification within and outside the shore of our country, Nigeria.

I will also urge the ruling party APC to take the great advantages by making a rightful choice of this young, vibrant, highly revered eminent political leader, a proficient political technocrat of huge contributions in our nation building.

And also know that the ” Youth Inclusion ” will be a marketing drive to ensure landslide victory for APC in the fast approaching 2023 General Elections.

El Dabi’s campaign slogans to the hearing of million of Nigerians has always been ” NIGERIA FIRST ” which is anchored on the principles of justice , fairness, equity , honesty detribalization and transformational leadership.

A professional accountant and management consultant from the North East Region of Borno State with impressive track records of public and private service whose words of hope and renaissance has been resounding with Nigerian Youths and other marginal segments including the working and professional classes from nooks and crannies of our country.

As a Masters Degree Holder in Project Management, PhD Holder in Business Management, Professional Diploma in Dynamics of Forensic Graphology, Professional Diploma in Intelligence, Professional Diploma in Criminology and Security Studies with verifiable certificate from Internal Security Organisation, (ISO) KLG in Collaboration with indian School of Profiling & Graphology, Pan- African Shied College, Kenya and with immense studies in Accountancy, Projects and Management Studies from American Academy of Project Management. And he has progressive acumen that can turn Nigeria nation for good.

It is worthy to let you know that, before the All Progressives Congress Primaries, he was one of the youngest and front line aspirants for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the platform of the ruling party.

I strongly believe and opine with the recorded aggregate sampled opinions of the Nigeria elites, political Leaders, the Youths across board, Market women, artisans, indigents and the voiceless, he is healthily fit , sumptuously experienced to be the Nigeria next Vice President.

Nigeria has come of time and age in her political development and in this regards I want to appeal to Nigerians to have a new mind set devoid of sentiments weaved around Religions and Ethnicity which have been the main bane of our discordance.

Some political activists and leaders who sometimes only looking upward to what drops down as benefits or their gains from deceit, end up confusing the electorate on this very hitching factors to have their ways in politics.

But going down the memory lane in 1983 Presidential Elections, the mutual political understanding, arraignments, tactical approach and mathematical calculations of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) on the Late Chief Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola (MKO) from the Southwest geopolitical zone, an astute Islamic figure and a Yoruba High Chief and Alhaji Babagana Kengibe a core northern reputable bigwig politician per excellence as running mate, paved way for the party unprecedented victory.

You will recall, SDP did not only win but the party won beyond any Nigerian imagination. And of course, the the narrations on religion Muslim/Muslim ticket and the Ethnocentric disposition changed. Then if I may ask, ” What brought about the success?” It was a politics of “No sentiments of Religion and Ethnicity.”

Nigerians should look out for good qualities of any given candidate and what are the resultant beneficial effects on our nation’s growth in all the spheres of our life.

Dr Ibrahim Bello Dauda popularly known as ” El Dabi ” is no doubt a precinct of many academia, political thoughts and ideas that can give Nigerians a new narration of greater benefits.
He Will Bridge An Excellent Gab Between The Old And The Young.
And With His Great Sense Of Humility Will Be The Good Fit AS A Vice President To Our Amiable Leader, The APC Presidential Candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu..Jagaban whose political prowess can not be over emphasised. History has vindicated him over and over again.

I cannot but reemphasize in my objective and sincere opinion that, the All Progressives Congress Leadership, Political Class and Nigerians, should consider a promising philanthropist Dr Ibrahim Bello Dauda El Dabi a detribalized Nigerian who holds Nigerians in high esteem loves to offer a selfless , prudent , progressive and stable leadership devoid of negative , backward and parochial sentiment. A leader with truth , facts popular will and global best practice. A mission he prays to accomplish.

And his passionate Vision is geared towards creating a Nigeria we can all be proud of where Justice , Liberty and security for everyone is guaranteed regardless of their tribes, religion or class.
A Nigeria where opportunities are evenly and equitable distributed, hard work and labour are dignified where resources and talents are harnessed for the national good and interest, development and progress are conceived, designed to be sustainable and to make Nigeria an African giant and a global opportunity.

” He Who Is Not Courageous Enough To Take Risks Will Accomplish Nothing In Life. ”
– Winston Churchill.

With a deep sense of commitments to the repositioning of Nigeria for better life, breaking through the economic and political entanglement, building the unifying factors on truth and genuine purposes in order to
achieving the long awaited desired Unity, Progress and Peace in our noble nation, I am hopeful that the political class, our great front line leaders, elites, especially the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Leadership, His Excellency President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, His Excellency Abubakar Adamu the Chairman of APC and His Excellency Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu Jagaban , the Presidential Candidate of APC by this public appeal will heed to this subtle clarion call to a sacred direction.

Millions of Nigerians from the Six geopolitical Zones of our nation are yearning for a youth governance, a new narration on Youth Inclusion, Empowerment, Development, an enabling environment to strive and an absolute turn around of a country worth living in of which Dr Ibrahim Bello Dauda’s Vice Presidency stands to offer Nigerians.

Dr Ibrahim Bello Dauda will be a great complement to H.E Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. And without mincing words and at this crucial period, he is the right Candidate for the office of the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Rev Yakubu dispels Yomi’s claims of NCPC suspension of pilgrimage



….says exercise ongoing, challenges Adamawa CAN chairman on corruption allegations

The Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission, Reverend Yakubu Pam, on Saturday debunked claims that the NCPC has suspended the 2022 pilgrimage.

Pam also challenged the Chairman of the Adamawa State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Bishop Steven Dami Manzo over the corruption allegations he levelled against him.

NCPC Board Chairman, Rev Yomi Kasali had recently announced the suspension of all activities related to this year’s pilgrimage to Jerusalem while Bishop Manzo had accused the NCPC executive secretary of financial misappropriation.

Reacting during a news programme on TVC on Saturday evening, the NCPC boss said as the chief accounting officer of the commission, nobody had suspended the 2022 pilgrimage.

He said there was no time that the NCPC management or Board held any meeting to take a decision to suspend this year’s pilgrimage, which had already commenced and was still ongoing.

Pam clarified that due to some logistics problems encountered in the course of the pilgrimage, the Board of the Commission met in November and resolved that the commission would not continue with the airlifting of the pilgrims from the states that had paid to Israel for the November-December exercise.

He added that discontinuing the airlifting of intending pilgrims does not amount to and should not be misconstrued as a suspension of the entire pilgrimage activities.

Pam further stated that suspending pilgrimage was a cumbersome process which the Commission could not unilaterally take a decision on as its supervisory body must inform the President through the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and the National Assembly.

He added that the Commission’s customers, which are the state governments that have paid and the private tour operators could also drag NCPC to court if it decided to take any decision to suspend the pilgrimage.

Pam said, “Because of the logistics problems we faced, we said we should not continue with airlifting, not suspending pilgrimage activities. Suspension means that everything is locked down.

“Before you make a statement on anything suspension, you must write our supervisory body and tell them that we’re suspending activities. You’ll also have to, which is through the office of the SGF, to inform Mr President that everything in the commission is suspended. You must also write the National Assembly and our customers because they have the right to take us to court as a lot of them have paid us to travel.

“But when we say airlifting is suspended, it means other activities are going on and what are other activities? Today, we have over 12 states that have already paid to travel and we’re conducting what we call screening to make sure we have those who are certified to travel, by health, and those that we feel may not abscond. This is what is going on and is part of the pilgrimage activities and just within three weeks or two weeks ago, we have more than four states that have already paid.

“And we have private sector tour organisations which registered with us and they have the licence to carry people to Israel and bring them back but through us because we also screen them and we are in charge of the visas. Until we write the authorities and Government of Israel to give them visas, they will not have visas. And right now as I’m talking, we have over a hundred of them in Israel. So, if there is suspension of pilgrimage activities, why are people in Israel? Why are people in Jordan?”

Pam also said there was no controversy about the N1.5millon paid by intending pilgrims, adding that the commission held a meeting with its private customers and the states in September where the fee was agreed upon.

“As I said, about 12 states have already paid. We start with that first before you go into procurement and then you award the contract to the contractors that will carry the people by the airlines and then the ground handlers who are there in Israel,” he said.

On the corruption allegations leveled against him by the Adamawa State CAN chairman, the NCPC boss said anyone with any proof of graft against should present his evidence to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, which is the supervisory body rather than making wild and unfounded allegations in the media.

“I’m here as the chief accounting officer of the commission to say that there is no suspension of pilgrimage anywhere. If somebody mentions corruption at NCPC, there is a way you can bring it up – bring evidence of the money and whatever it is, there is EFCC or you can take it to those who supervise us. You can come to the media level corruption allegations,” Pam said.
