Jonathan Receives Presidential Campaign Report


The Nigerian President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, has received the report of the PDP’s 2015 Presidential Campaign.

The report was submitted to him by the Director-General of the Jonathan/Sambo Campaign Organisation, Dr Ahmadu Ali, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The Director-General, before the presentation of the report, recalled how the organization was constituted and what they did within a short period of time.

He commended the President for the action taken following the outcome of the results and then presented the two volume report which he said would provide a road map for moving the PDP forward.

The President said in his reaction, “The important thing is not that PDP lost the elections, but that Nigeria as a nation has moved forward and political parties can only thrive when there is peace in the country.”

The Nigerian President also told his party men that the result of the election should be taken as history, while they strategise on how to consolidate and bounce back in 2019.

He called on his party men to remain loyal as those who left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would come back to the party when their stomach is empty out of hunger because the other party would take care of their loyalists before reaching out to those who cross carpeted.

Responses also came from the Vice President, Namadi Sambo, and the Chairman PDP Board of Trustees, Chief Tony Anenih, who said that they were very proud of the President for bringing a new dimension to the electoral process in Nigeria and the peace the country is enjoying.

They both stated that it was indeed time for the PDP to regroup and bounce back.

Obiano Signs $61m Poultry Farming MoU With Lynden Farms


The Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, has signed a $61m Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Lynden Integrated Farms Limited for the establishment of a modern poultry production and processing farm in the state.

The Governor, during the occasion at the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia in Awka, the Anambra State capital, emphasised that agriculture remains the number one pillar in his economic agenda for the state, revealing his determination to turn Anambra State into a model agricultural state.

He stressed the plans to expand the agricultural landscape of the state, noting that he would want to change the trend whereby all day old chicks sold in the South are brought in from the West.

Governor Obiano further expressed that he was planning towards establishing a favourable and sustainable environment for commercial agriculture to thrive in Anambra State more than any other state.

The Chairman of Lynden Integrated Farms Limited led executive officers of the company to the Governor’s Lodge to seal the business contract with the state government.

The Chairman, Mr Clem Nwogbo, while stating the benefits of the project, said that the project has the capacity to position Anambra State as the center of excellence in poultry farming in the south-east and south-south.

He noted that this would be based on his company’s ability in developing a two-phased modern integrated poultry production and processing plan with day old chicks, and subsequently upgrading its facilities to provide high quality eggs from layers as well as fresh and frozen meat from broilers.

The Chairman of Anambra State Investment Promotion and Protection Agency (ANSIPA), Mr Cyril Enwezor, gave the statistics of the equity ratio of the business which gives the investing company 90%, 6% for the state government and 4% for the host community. The company would also maintain a robust corporate social responsibility to the host community still.
