Statement From Hon. Ahmed Mohammed (Member representing Ankpa 1 constituency in the Kogi State House of Assembly)
I was privileged to be part of the Emerging Political Leaders Summit #EPLSummit2017 held yesterday at the Yar'adua Center and it was marvelous as critical issues in areas of Politics, Leadership and Mentorship, Grassroot connect were critically discussed.
The new Nigeria we envisaged must demand for a new set of leaders with a different orientation towards economic and political problem solving, and a new engagement model with more of citizens participation. We must be agent of positive change and there is need to properly situate the country within the context of her past and present, to fashion out a more desirable future for the citizenry to enable the nation take her place in Africa and the world.
The #EPLSummit2017 gave a platform to share experiences with a view to determining the best model for development oriented governance across the Nation/Continent, as well as breaking political and economic barriers for emerging political leaders. I was humbled to be branded as an "An ambassador of Emerging political leaders"
My brother Abdullahi O Haruna Haruspice was exceptional with his presentation. Kudos bro

An Aquaculture & Agriculture Demonstration Between Nigeria & Norway
Chijoke Igwe is working to forge strong bonds between Norwegian and Nigerian businesses. In his opinion there’s a lot the aquaculture and agriculture businesses of Helgeland could bring to the table in the development of these industries in his home country.
AQUACULTURE: Igwe visiting the LetSea onshore facility at Dønna, which produces cleaner fish destined for delousing work in salmon farms.
FULL SCALE: Visit to the full scale LetSea facility at Solfjellsjøen, managing director Kristian Johnsen (right) acting as guide.
AGRICULTURE: Vibeke Lind guiding her visitor around Bioforsk at Tjøtta.
FIRST VISIT. – Incredible.
This is how Chijoke sums up his few days’ experience of outer Helgeland. The chairman of the recently established Norwegian – Nigerian chamber of commerce visited Norway to arrange the chamber’s first seminar for Norwegian businesses. 70 companies and organisations, spearheaded by Statoil, took part in the inaugural event in Oslo last week. Next, Igwe wanted to see more of Norway. Reaching out through an extensive network, he was put in touch with Øystein Barth-Heyerdahl in Sandnessjøen, who took it upon himself to organise a programme for the visit.
LONG TRADITIONS. Igwe explains that Nigeria is looking to diversify and develop other industries after having its economy largely dominated by oil in the latest years. Igwe candidly goes on to talk about how the natural resources of his home country have not been managed in a way that has benefited the entire nation. With declining oil revenue, a new interest in stimulating other parts of Nigierian industry awoke.
– Falling oil prices have been a healthy wake up call for us, says Igwe.
– Nigerian agriculture has been utterly neglected, despite our land areas being of the most productive in the world.
Igwe also brings up the long standing fish trading relationship between Norway and Nigeria. This is a historic bond that Nigeria is looking to develop further in several directions. The primary objective is to learn more about how to develop industries such as aquaculture, education, technology, innovation and agriculture.

During an Exclusive interview with SIDNEY NWACHUKWU, Country Editor of Saharaweekly, he states that Belaire brands, are fast-rising products and have come to stay with its dynamic approach to changing the climate of Bubbly market in Nigeria/ Africa.
What made you bring your business to Nigeria?
Firstly, Nigeria is the most populous Black nation in the world. Meaning there is strength in numbers. It shows there are lots of opportunities. Also Nigeria is one of the most vibrant markets in terms of social life. People are most desirous of good lifestyle. All around the globe, you would find out that of two Black people you meet, one is a Nigerian. And it’s easy to know who the Nigerian is. In terms of social circle, they are the people who would turn up the most. So it is an opportunity for any brand that wants to grow to be in Nigeria, especially in the wine/spirit business.
Nigerians are some of the most stylish people in the world. In fact, we run the entire African market. The growth of the bubbly brands is driven by Nigerians. They took the lifestyle from Nigeria to the world. They seek out their fun and leisure time; what they want, they seek it and pay for it, and it has become the norm. The South Africans had to learn from us. So we will always be the key market, not just for wine/spirit, but also for luxury goods. I believe we have the highest number of luxury cars on the streets in Nigeria across the Africa.
Your brand of champagne, Belaire and Bumbu, seems more like rum. What is behind the captivating names?
Sovereign Brands is a company that thrives on innovation; we are very creative minded people, we thrive on creativity and innovation. It’s a business that is blessed with a lot of talents. In every field here, you find some of the best hands, in marketing, sales and commercial departments, you would find people that are tested and kno

The Osolo/Oshodi Federal Constituency representative at the National Assembly, Hon. Tony Nwulu has urged youths in the country to join political parties ahead of the 2019 elections to enable them to be voted into political offices. Nwulu stressed on the need for youths to work hard and ensure their candidate in the forthcoming election emerge through voting, as election is beyond instagram and facebook fantasies.
He made the call at the Emerging Political Leaders Summit in Abuja today where he beckoned on youths to come out enmass to vote by ensuring they get registered to participate in the electioneering process. Hon. Tony Nwulu who initiated “not too young to run bill; a bill that highlights the inclusiveness and relevance of youths in governance, buttressed his presentations with proverbial references as he said the destiny of the youths is in their hands and they should not wash it over. The proactive lawmaker called on the youths to go to their base and show they can serve them well enough to be voted as politics is local and grassroot oriented.
The “emerging political leaders summit” which had speakers from different political backgrounds including the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, represented by Sen. Babafemi Ojudu, Special Adviser to the President on Political Affairs, exposed and provided a platform for qualitative conversation, discourse and strategic deliberations on the alternative channels for political participation as well as networks to the current conventional system which created a huge gap between leadership and the people.
Osinbajo, however, advised youths not to expect that from the day they start participating in politics they would become the president of Nigeria. He said that it was not realistic and could not happen, but that they needed to start gradually from the ward level and move up to local government level and to state “before the presidency’’. Mr Kingsley Moghalu, former Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), said that youths had the power to change their destiny to a better future by
