Asecurity expert, Chief Owolabi Ajayi, has assured youths that the Bola Tinubu presidency will uplift them. He promised them their support will not be in vain.

Owolabi spoke while addressing reporters on the ‘Renewed Hope Concert’ scheduled to hold in Abuja on Thursday at the MKO Abiola National Stadium. The concert will feature top-notch entertainers from across the country.

Owolabi, in a statement yesterday, praised the youths for standing firmly for Tinubu at a time Nigeria was in a dire need of positive change.

According to him, Tinubu has mapped out plans to uplift the youths and enhance their development and prosperity. He said the youths will not regret supporting the President-elect and his vice president-elect.

The legal team to the President elect, Bola Tinubu and APC at the PEPC has placed a ban on media interviews on proceedings of the court with a threat to expel any member of the team that defaults.

A member of the team, Adeniyi Akintola disclosed this during the court’s session on the three surviving petitions against their client.

Akintola who was meant to respond to the court decision banning the use of phones and other electronic gadgets in the courtroom, veered into this conversation without adducing reasons for the decision.

He said the same ban has been extended to their client and President-elect, Tinubu.

The senior lawyer said that the ban on media interviews would be strictly observed and enforced.

Chairman of the Court, Justice Haruna Simon Tsammani, however, did not react to the decision when presented in the open court.

The Governor of Bayelsa State, Douye Diri, said on Tuesday that the outgoing President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), did not initiate any new project in any part of the state throughout his eight years in office.

He stated this at the inauguration and handover ceremony of the Federal Secretariat Complex in Yenagoa, which is named after former President Goodluck Jonathan, whose administration started the project in 2011.

Diri said, “While it is good that the Federal Government completed some of the projects started by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, we want to place it on record that for the past eight years, we never saw one new project in Bayelsa State.”

He pointed out that the Federal Government had witnessed first-hand the comparatively high cost of executing infrastructural projects in the state, stressing that the cost of constructing a kilometre of standard road in Bayelsa could be used to construct four or more kilometres of the same grade of road elsewhere in the country.

The governor, who was represented at the event by his deputy, Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, noted that the Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Federal Secretariat, which was initially pegged for N2.5bn, had to undergo a cost variation after the 2012 catastrophic flood and was completed at a total cost of N3.1bn.
