A front line aspirant for the central senatorial district of Kogi State in the forthcoming general elections, Natasha Hadiza Akpoti, has said that her major policy trust when elected as Senator would be the revitalization of the Ajaokuta Steel complex and all other ailing Steel companies in Nigeria.
In a statement made available to newsmen in Lokoja on Saturday after obtaining the nomination form of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Akpoti noted that a functioning Ajaokuta Steel complex was capable of generating huge employment opportunities to the citizenry, high revenue generation to the country,  technology  transfer among other benefits.

In addition to the efforts she has made so far in creating awareness about the company and the steel industry in Nigeria , she said more still needs to be achieved in the areas of Steel laws, establishment of Steel authority and ensure that the necessary political will is engendered.

“When I stood against the privatisation of the Ajaokuta Steel Company, I did so because of my firm believe that the company holds the future of our country. When I become a Senator I will not only work for the resuscitation of Ajaokuta Steel complex but all other Steel Companies in Nigeria that will use the product of Ajaokuta Steel as raw materials and the country would be better for it,” she said.

On why she has decided to venture into politics this time around, the social rights crusader, said her constituent have been marginalized from the necessities of government when it comes to social Justice and economic development.

While noting that the people have been absolutely neglected in the scheme of things in the country, she however said that the people have now realized that government and governance is far away from them and there is the need for someone who is committed to their wellbeing to bridge the gap.
“I am stepping into politics of the Central senatorial district of Kogi State to bridge this gap, so that I can make the difference, be the voice of the voiceless, provide support for the weakest in  the society and the most marginalized people of Nigeria.”

She said in addition to right to life as enshrined in the constitution, she will in addition advocate for rights to portable water, good roads, quality education adequate healthcare delivery and inclusive governance which she said the SDP stands for.

“As a woman, will also advocate for huge women participation in politics. Women have made their marks in the cooperate world, it is time for opportunities to  be given to the women to take charge of leadership positions.

She said the reason why she opted for the Social Democratic Party (SDP) to actualize her senatorial ambition was because the manifesto of the party is in line with her personal philosophy of service to humanity.

Akpoti reafirm her commitment to social justice and freedom for all human as it is enshrined in the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended.

According to her, “the reason why we have settled down for the SDP to deliver our mandate is that I have taken time in the last three months to study the manifestos of all the political parties and we found that of the SDP as the one that tally with our aspiration.

She noted that the philosophy of the party resonates with her ideas of politics, adding that her father was one of the founding members of the party who worked closely with late Moshood Abiola to promote the party and by default “l have always been a social democrat at heart.”
Flood In Kogi: Over 4,000 Kogi Residents Displaced - See Photos.

Over 4000 residents of Kogi State have been displaced by flood following the overflow of rivers Niger and Benue in the last four days.


The State Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, Sanusi Yahaya, disclosed this to Channels Television in a recent interview in Lokoja.

According to him the water level in Lokoja at the confluence point has risen 10 meters above, which he says is beyond the normal level.

In the past weeks, several other states have witnessed increased rainfall which has led to flooding in some areas.



Consequently, the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (NIHSA) in a statement on Thursday warned that the steady rise in water levels and weather forecast for the coming weeks have put Nigeria at risk of witnessing a recurrence of catastrophic flooding similar to what it witnessed in 2012.

“There has been systematic daily rise in the water levels on both rivers. Records from our measuring stations in Lokoja (River Niger) & Makurdi (River Benue) clearly show this,” the agency said.

“This situation calls for watchfulness on the part of the riparian states as there is still a likelihood of occurrence of river flooding. Shiroro Dam has already joined Kainji and Jebba Dams in spilling water. This has contributed to the steady rise in the water level,” NIHSA explained further.

In 2012, catastrophic flooding had affected up to 30 states in Nigeria and resulted in the deaths of over 300 people and displaced more than two million people, according to data from the National Emergency Management Agency.

NIHSA believes the country is at risk of a recurrence of the disaster if steps are not taken.

Among all our men that have represented us at the red chamber, who among them lived up to expectations? Who among them fought for the reasons they were voted for? Who among them represented the general interest of the people of Central with sincerity of purpose?
Who among them brought the dividends of democracy to the people? And who among their lots except late Distinguished Senator, A.T Ahmed of blessed memory, who brought the presence of the government to their constituents?
To be factual, none of these were obtainable in the recent political activities that had taken place in Kogi Central.
This is why we should realize the fact that our men had disappointed us and they have failed to find solutions to the pressing issues affecting the Central.
Funds meant for Constituency projects were either mismanaged or diverted for personal benefits.
With all these in play, we have seen, heard and read about a lady, Barr. Natasha Hadiza Akpoti who from self effort, had changed the lives of an ordinary people through an established organization by her to positively affect the lives of the people.
Natasha H. Akpoti has in all capacity driven so hard to making sure the only resources available on the land, Ajaokuta Steel Company is revived to benefit not only the people of the Central she is vying to represent, but the nation at large.
Despite the fact that she is in no position of authority, yet; she has given it all it takes to see its actualisation against all obstacles.
Ajaokuta has been a campaign platform for the most erstwhile occupants of the exalted position which they all failed us.
Moreso, Barr. Natasha, having been recognised and loved by the masses in Kogi Central due the aforementioned selfless service to humanity.
It is no doubt in the minds of the masses in Kogi Central now that Barr. Natasha is the right choice that can bring sustainable development to our fatherland. Our education, health, roads, business opportunity will be given priority and our District will gradually be uplifted.
Hunger will be wiped off through ‘Natasha Poverty Eradication Programme’ in the Central. Women and youth capacity building will also bring the unemployed youths into various self-owned micro businesses to support the efforts of the State Government.
My dear people of Kogi Central, let us be wise. Support Barr. Natasha H. Akpoti who is already fighting for our positive development before now, to enable us enjoy and preserve better lots for our next generation.
Thank you.

The leadership of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State has adopted the option of indirect delegates primaries in the forthcoming party's primaries to field candidates for the various elective positions in next year's general elections.

The resolution was unanimously reached by members of the party at the Executive Council (NEC) meeting that held on Wednesday in Government House, Lokoja.

Addressing party faithful, Governor Yahaya Bello urged aspirants interested in standing for elective positions to go ahead and purchase their intent forms as the government does not have anointed candidates as widely presumed by members of the public.

Governor Bello assured that the party would create a level playing ground for all aspirants to test their popularity, and promised to work with whoever eventually emerged from whatever methodology agreed by leaders and members of the party on how candidates should emerge.

Governor Bello says; "Forms are on sale, feel free to purchase. Every member of the party and aspirants alike are all my people. 

"The insinuations that some aspirants have been anointed by me are false. I will not anoint anyone. We are ready to make the process free, fair and credible. I will eventually support whoever you decide to select as our party's candidate," he added.

According to the Governor, the interest of the party is to sweep all the elective positions on offer with a landslide in the coming elections, describing the NEC meeting as the first meeting that has held as Governor.

He further warned all the party executives in the state to desist from all forms of extortion from  aspirants with the promise of securing party ticket for them, adding that anyone found engaging in the illegal act would face the full wrath of the law.

"The era of extorting money from aspirants with the aim of influencing the outcome of primaries in their favour is over. I have been a victim of extortion in the past and I know how it feels. Don't take advantage of anyone seeking public office. Let's allow them equal opportunity and rally round anyone who emerges the flag bearer."

Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Rt Hon Matthew Kolawole had earlier applauded the decision of the APC family to hold the NEC meeting, stressing that it was an avenue for leaders and members of the party to harmonise and come up with concrete resolution on their choice method for the party's forthcoming primaries. 

He particularly lauded the Governor for giving all party faithful the opportunity to air their views, adding that the decision to choose indirect primaries was a step in the right direction. 

Speaking, recently elected member of the Federal House of Representatives for Lokoja/Kogi Federal Constituency, Hon Haruna Isah had described the decision of an indirect primaries as laudable one in view of the myriad of challenges being faced in the authentication of accurate membership of the party. 

The Chief of Staff to the Governor, Hon Edward Onoja had earlier told the gathering that the APC was not ready to jeopardize its chances at the primaries, stressing that love of the party has continued to soar under the current administration as it has gained over 500, 000 foot soldiers in the various Local Government Areas of Kogi State.

"We have agreed as a party that our choice is indirect primaries. Let's save our party the challenges of direct primaries. I would align myself with the option proposed, which is indirect primaries and avoid sponsored individuals who would want to disorganize the process and infiltrate the APC," he said.

Hon. Onoja expressed optimism that the peace witnessed in the various congress elections in the state would be replicated in the party's primaries and called for team work and synergy amongst members.

On his part, Chairman of the party in Kogi State, Hon Abdullahi Bello had lauded members of the APC for their peaceful disposition and commitment towards ensuring overwhelming victory at the polls, and assured of the party's commitment towards a transparent process. 

He praised Governor Bello for his dedication towards the cause of the APC, assuring of the party's preparedness towards ensuring convincing victories at the polls.

(Senatorial Aspirant, Kogi Central Senatorial District ).
A coalition of youth groups from Kogi Central Senatorial district has berated the federal government’s long neglect of the dilapidated Okene – Lokoja highway.

Members of Coalition of Kogi State Elites (COKE) in Collaboration with the Kogi Central Excos of the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) who embarked on a joint community project to manually sand-fill the badly damaged portions of the road today in Okene, described the situation as disappointing.

Comrade Abdul Rauf, president of COKE lamented the perennial negligence of the road by successive administrations in Nigeria.

Abdul Rauf wondered why a road that’s plied by tens of thousands of travellers to and from the federal capital territory, Abuja could be left unaddressed for so long.

"It is unfortunate that the Federal government has paid no heed to several appeals for the total rehabilitation of this all important road.

"For over a decade, this particular road has been listed among the capital project of our national budget but has never received significant attention from successive government".

Speaking on behalf of the Kogi Central Excos of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, Comrade Isah Onimisi Babangida recalled the nightmare faced by motorists on the damaged portions of the highway, citing instances where travellers spent days on traffic gridlock around the area.

"There was an instance where Abuja and Lagos bound travellers spent about three days on this road. Traffic was on a standstill as all the escape routes within the township were over congested and completely blocked.

"It has been a horrible experience for the motorists since the rainy season began until the road recently received palliative measures from both Kogi State Government and the Federal Road Maintenance Agency (FERMA).

“The temporary repairs only provide relief for a short time as it is now an annual tradition during the rainy seasons when heavy downpours erode most part of the road due to poor drainage system.

A member of the group, Comrade Ismail M. Kabir wondered why in spite of the huge support enjoyed by President Muhammadu Buhari since his presidential ambition began in 2003 by the people of Kogi central district, no meaningful project has been brought to the zone.

"It is on record that President Muhammad Buhari has enjoyed undiluted support of the people of Kogi Central district since he began his presidential ambition in 2003.

"I think it is not too much to ask that the administration makes the federal roads passing through our community motorable for the multitude of Nigerians plying this route on daily basis. The adverse effect is already telling on the socioeconomic activities in the community”.

The group then called on lawmakers from the area to raise their voice in solidarity with the advocacy by raising motions in favour of total rehabilitation of the highway, saying all hands must be on deck until a permanent solution is proffered.

While acknowledging the recent palliative steps taken by the state government to ease traffic on the road, the group further called on Kogi state governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello to mount pressure on the Power, Works and Housing Minister, Babatunde Raji Fashola to declare a state of emergency on the road for its total rehabilitation ahead of the Yuletide period.

"We are approaching December and the road is already an eyesore. So we are calling on our governor to strongly appeal to the Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Mr. Raji Fashola to declare a state of emergency on this road to avoid a repeat of the usual gridlock motorists experience around here at such time of the year".
Kogi Central Senate aspirant, Alh Khalifa Abdulrahaman Okene on Thursday debunked the false information alleging that he stepped down for another aspirant, describing the information as a figment of the writer's imagination. 

In a press statement signed by Okene, he declared that he is carrying the mandate of the people and will be at the polls. "To set the records straight, I was at the residence of the Governor this morning to clarify facts on his widely circulated endorsement of an aspirant and Local Government to flag the candidacy of the All Progressives Congress, and there was no such meeting between myself and the other aspirants whose names were mentioned. 

"While I am not oblivious of the calculations of opponents to ride through my name in attempts to regain a lost reputation, I want to state it categorically to all and sundry that I carry the unalloyed mandate of the people, and fully committed to this cause. "Therefore, disregard such spurious messages and consider them a figment of the writer’s imagination. 

I understand the likelihood of similar malicious information popping up in the future, and I am assuring my teeming supporters that I will be at the polls where the exercise of their franchises will coast us to victory," he stated.

I have been trying to update all my contents on this site so this tracks are Diyo Ozi Niger's 2003 Album you can download it below for free, but before then this is a short description about Diyo Ozi Niger.

Diyo is one of the most famous Ebira Masquerade Musician of all time he is late. but his legacy lives on that a lot of Ebira People wants to be like him in terms of music pattern and beaten.

I have previously uploaded some of his songs on this site you can click here to see all his songs 

In the early stages of dating, you tend to stay up late texting or talking to the desired person on the phone and maybe even scrolling through his photos on Facebook or Instagram, wondering what your children would look like. When on dates, the two of you generally go out to eat, fill the time together with engaging activities, and put on the best version of yourselves. Expectedly, when you begin to take the relationship more seriously, the real you comes out. and all those personal subjects that a person tends to shy away from in the beginning.


Luckily, in my relationship, we got the hard conversations out of the way. Our pasts, our values, our careers, our families… We laid it all out on the table. This isn’t to say that our lives are perfectly aligned, because they most definitely are not. We have our fair share of differences, though none are enough to make either of us run. However, one difference stood out more than the rest and likely tempted both of us to run at some point:

He’s a Full Ebira Boy, i mean brought up in Nigeria type though he can be a pain in the Ass sometimes but a pain i will love to endure lols… And I An American/Nigerian Girl born and brought up in New York, Living in Brooklyn. Ihima Nigeria to be precise

Growing up in the United States and having to join so many Ebira Peoples Facebook group just to familiarise my self with world in Nigeria i came across Ebiraland Media. This is where I met my boyfriend, this sites CEO. While my observations at school helped me to understand some cultural differences, it wasn’t until I became serious with my boyfriend that the culture shock hit. Here are a few things that I’ve learned over the past few years:

1. You mean a lot to him if he brings you home.


Though, in our circumstances, I had already talk to his mother through phone calls and through Video Calls, when i got back to Nigeria it still took months for my guy to invite me to his house. By bringing a girl into his house, a guy is communicating to his family that he is serious about her. He doesn’t want to jump the gun on this. In Ebira culture, if he brings you home, you’re well on your way to becoming family....

2. Always accept food, even if you aren’t hungry.

Luckily, my guy told me this before I ate with his family in Okene. It’s considered rude if you don’t accept the food that is offered to you. I don't know how to put this, but food is very important with everything i have learned you don't want to see the other side of the family.

3. Try all the food, even if you already know you don’t like it.


Have you ever seen that movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding? Well, it’s like that part where she tells her family that her boyfriend doesn’t eat meat, and her mother responds, “That’s okay, I make lamb.” Whatever foods you don’t like, you’ll likely end up eating if you truly like the guy you’re dating. In my experience, I despise Gorigo Soup but his family love it, he in the other hand is like me he don't like it.

4. Religious faith is incredibly important.


For me, this was an easy transition. We were raised in the same faith, but our families were at very different levels of practice. In an Ebira family, religious life is a top priority. Great offense is taken if you express any disinterest in Islam or its beliefs. Once, when we were cleaning my boyfriends room, my boyfriend's brother offered me a painting of Sheikh Ibrahim Inyass (to be sincere my boyfriend hates it because he is Al-Sunnah and his Families are Tijaniya). Because I didn’t want him to give up his painting, I said that I didn’t need it. His Grandfather overheard the conversation and he interjected, “Why? You don’t like Inyass?” I am now the proud owner of a lovely painting of Ibrahim Inyass. Again you don't wanna see the other side of the family i learned that from my Mother though.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

This was only the beginning of my Ebira education. When I expressed my desire to relocate from Lagos, his family didn’t hesitate to offer me a bed in their house. With much consideration, I accepted their offer and moved in. It was then that I began to learn a tremendous deal more about Ebira culture.

5. Expect to stay up late.


In many Ebira families, dinner time is anywhere from 7:00pm-8:00pm. Coming from New York, that is about 2 hours later than my regular eating schedule. If you are like me, and you are accustomed to waiting 2 or more hours after eating to go to sleep, then you will likely be heading to bed a lot later than you’re used to. You do, of course, have the option of sleeping early and not eating with the family… But you know what I said about accepting food. If you often choose not to eat with the family, they will wonder if you either dislike their food or don’t want to spend time with them.

6. Expect to be up early for prayer.


If you already have an early morning schedule for prayer, this won’t affect you much. However, if you value sleeping in as long as possible before your day begins and pray, that sleep may be interrupted. Chances are, someone in the house will be up before 4:30am daily, and you will definitely hear it. because you will be wake for prayer don't forget the Faith part of this article

7. Know some basic Ebira Language.


While many Ebiras in the United States and other parts of Nigeria and abroad have knowledge of English, Ebira is more often spoken in the home. You may not be called on to use Ebira often, but it is ideal to at least understand what the rest of the family is speaking about… Especially if it’s important. Additionally, there are likely some non-immediate family members that have little knowledge of English who will prefer to converse with you in Ebira Language. You also want to be in on the jokes, trust me.

8. You’re never done cleaning.


Cleaning the kitchen or the living room once in awhile may be a nice way to help around the house, but don’t be offended if it goes unnoticed. Often, these areas can become cluttered within a matter of minutes, depending on how many people occupy the house. Additionally, someone (generally the mother) will likely unintentionally overlook your attempt to clean and do her own cleaning soon after you’ve finished. In my experience, my guy’s mother is experienced in cleaning. Therefore, what I may think of as clean may not be up to par with her standards.

9. Always show your face at the events and buy Anko LOLS.


Be it a birthday, wedding or just a typical burial ceremony, your house is likely to host an event. Whoever hosts the event takes much pride in the event, so it’s important to be present for at least a portion of it. Typically, event can last anywhere from three to four hours… So, if you have a lot of work to do, I recommend joining the congregation about an hour and a half in. Leaving early is always a bit more awkward than showing up late. and make sure you put on your Anko....

13. These people are your family.


If you are lucky enough to experience living with a Ebira family for any period of time, you will learn that the nurturing nature of your environment is a blessing. Their home is your home, and they want you to feel as comfortable as possible… but not too comfortable. Because they will treat you like family, you will also be expected to do your part around the house. Living with Ebiras is a wonderful learning experience and an opportunity to know some truly incredible and caring people.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

While this list may give a brief outsider’s perspective on an Ebira family, the qualities of the guy are what really draw you in. My guy is, no doubt, the best man I could hope to love. This is, in part, due to the way he was raised and the traditions he practices. Here are some things that my wonderful Ebira has taught me:

14. It is important that your values align.


Just as in any relationship, your core values should be very similar. He will be adamant about his own values, and his core values will not be compromised for any reason.

17. His family is a top priority.


So, you were supposed to meet your guy at the gym? Well, his mother just called and told him to pick his sister up from school, and he’s going to be late… Needless to say, sometimes, you’ll have to be adaptable. Last-minute favors are common. This can be frustrating, but you can’t blame him for making his family a top priority, as yours is likely high on your list of priorities, too. This also means that, if he really likes you, he will want you to be a part of family events and make a genuine effort to spend time with his family.

18. He is as sexy as you’d imagine your Ebira boyfriend to be.


Well, at least my boyfriend is as sexy as I’d hoped. There is something about his passion, both for me and his interests, that make him incredibly attractive. This may have nothing to do with being Ebira, but I thought I’d share.

20. His love is incomparable.


This part is obviously subjective. However, I’ve observed that those I know who were raised in Ebira families have a unique strength, passion, and willpower in relationships. Together, through our own experiences and in observing our parents and friends, we have learned that all of these qualities are vital to a loving and enduring relationship. Additionally, my guy has a quality that makes me feel undeniably lucky. He is the master of the little things. Therefore, whether I think I deserve it in the moment or not, I always feel loved and valued. I’m no princess, but he makes it clear that I’m his Inya.

There is a new twist to politicking in Kogi State following a directive issued by the Governor of the state, Alh Yahaya Bello to his political appointees who are interested in elective positions. 

In a memo signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr Folashade Ayoade Arike, the Governor has directed that whoever wants to contest for an election should resign his or her appointment within 24 hours through the SSG.

Recall that the Spokesman of the governor, Kingsley Fanwo; and the Chairman Board of Internal Revenue, Alh Yakubu Oseni have both withdrawn from the race to contest for House of Representatives and Senate respectively.

Ebiraland Media gathered that more notices of withdrawal are in the offings as the opportunity to ride through the government's chariots may have been short-lived.
