Nigeria’s engineering construction sector leader, Julius Berger Big Plc, has donated a block of classrooms and Principal’s Office to Government Senior Day Secondary School, Dullu Tafa, Kagarko LGA in Kaduna State.

The gesture is in continuation of its strong commitment to corporate social responsibility to host communities across Nigeria,

Addressing the management and staff of the school, the Team lead of Julius Berger CSR delegation to the event, Engr. Yusuf Ibrahim, explained that Julius Berger’s tradition is to continually reach out to its host communities through multi-pronged emergency and palliative interventions or its planned long-term community empowerment and development schemes.

He said the school project is part of the company’s little way of making impact in the lives of not just the students, but the community at large. It is our hope and wish that the structure will be put into use and the children will have a conducive learning environment.”

The Principal of the school, Mrs. Angelina I.J. Kwasau, expressed happiness and noted that the donation of the classroom blocks was the first of its kind in the history of the school. “It is very obvious from the kind of joy you see on the faces of the people gathered here today.” She expressed regret that her students, due to the holiday break, were not present at Julius Berger’s donation of the beautiful and functional classroom blocks. Dullu Tafa being a very peaceful community attracts significant influx of students from even neighbouring communities, yet we did not have adequate classroom blocks to take in more children.”

Mrs Kwasau thanked the Management of Julius Berger Nigeria Plc for the donation of the spacious and functional classroom blocks. The Principal stated, “…some of our classes till now contained above a hundred students in a room, and this congestion hindered the learning process of our children. Excitedly, she said, “We are glad that Julius Berger observed our plight, intervened and built these very spacious classroom blocks to our understandable relief. We will not only decongest our classrooms, but we can also now admit more students. Julius Berger made this possible.”

Speaking at the event, the Principal of Government Junior Day Secondary School, Mr. Danladi Ali expressed his sincere gratitude to the company saying, “A relief to one, is a relief to all. We are very grateful to Julius Berger for its act of kindness towards us. I pray God continues to bless the company.”

The Head of Dullu Tafa District, James Bitrus, who was present at the event said, “I want to thank the construction leader, Julius Berger Nigeria Plc for the kind gestures and contributions made to our school and community. He recalled that Julius Berger also last year, came to the community’s primary school and donated insecticidal treated mosquito nets to every student, an act that no other corporate body had done for the community. He expressed gratitude to Julius Berger saying, “…we will continue to support the company as we have always done.”

The Julius Berger delegation to the event, included Engr. Yusuf Ibrahim, Akeem Lawal, Michael Ashofor and Olivia Uzoma.

ANTI PARTY ACTIVITIES: Esan Central APC, Suspends Nine Leaders, Appoints Bello



Nine Leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Esan Central LGA have been suspended at an extraordinary meeting held this evening at Irrua, the LGA capital.

The suspended leaders include APC State Vice Chairman, Chief Francis Inegbeniki, Esan Central foremost Party Leader, Prince Willy Shaka Momodu, Ward Leader, Hon Abudu Ugbesia, among six others.

The suspended nine APC leaders are alleged to have held a clandestine meeting at a hotel in Eidenu, Irrua on the eve of the House of Assembly election and resolved to work against their party candidate for the House of Assembly election, Hon Victor Edoror. It is alleged that they were induced by the ruling party and their grand conspiracy to disallow Hon Edoror to get into the House and become the Speaker which might scuttle their agenda for Esan governor candidate from Esan Central LGA.

The meeting which was attended enmass by angry members and party executives of the party across the LGA appointed former LGA Councillior, and House of Assembly election aspirant, Hon. Bello Oyaziwolo, as the acting Leader, to oversee the affairs of the party pending the determination of the investigation into the degree of involvement of each of the suspended leader.

Interestingly, the Deputy Leader of the Party in Esan Central LGA and former Vice Chairman of the LGA, Hon Francis Ubene, was exempted from suspension because preliminary investigation revealed that he was in the meeting allegedly called by Chief Inegbeniki, but he refused to agree with their alleged plan to sabotage the election for Hon Edoror because according to him “I have forgiven him and if I have forgiven him, I cannot work against him or the party”.

Speaking with Hon Bello, after the appointment, the new LGA Leader said he was not interested in Leading the party for selfish reasons but would commit himself to helping the party rid itself of betrayals and inept leaders in the LGA and hopefully allow a free process to produce the next LGA Leader.

Press Release



Senator Ovie Omo-Agege Rejects INEC’s Declaration of Oborevwori As Winner of Delta Poll

A while ago, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Delta State announced Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, gubernatorial flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the governor-elect following the March 18 governorship election.

The declaration was made despite the myriad of infractions and acts of impunity on the part of the PDP in the course of the election. These were brought to the attention of INEC with incontrovertible proof.

The March 18 election was characterized by massive fraud, unprecedented vote buying and voter suppression perpetrated by the PDP in the course of the election.

The fraudulent nature of PDP’s so-called victory are just too damning and daring for it to be acceptable in any decent society. Most of those infractions are on the public domain and known to INEC officials and the security agencies involved in superintending the election.

In the February 25 Presidential and National Assembly elections, the results pointed to an unequivocal rejection of the PDP. Of the three senatorial zones in the state, APC won two while PDP controversially edged out the Labour Party in the Delta North Senate race.

It was an unadulterated verdict of Deltans on how they have fared under 24 years of governance of their state by PDP.

On the basis of the factors listed and more that will come later, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, governorship candidate of the APC in Delta State as well as the leadership of the party, unequivocally reject the declaration by INEC of Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori of the PDP as winner of the March 18 governorship election.

We will challenge this fraudulent result using all legal means.

As a democrat and Deputy President of the Senate, Omo-Agege will explore all lawful avenues to reclaim the mandate freely given to him by the good people of Delta State.

To the numerous supporters of APC and the entire public that share in Omo-Agege’s vision of building a new Delta State, we urge you all to remain calm, peaceful and law abiding.

I can assure all our teeming supporters and all Deltans that the PDP pyrrhic celebration of a stolen mandate will be short-lived.

By the grace of God and the clearly expressed wish of the people, this electoral heist will be reversed and Senator Omo-Agege will be sworn in on May 29, 2023 as the lawfully elected Governor of Delta State.
