SAVE NIGERIA DEMOCRACY
I, Umaru Zakari Bamaiyi, an indegine of Kogi state contested in 2019 Kogi State governorship election but was wrongly disqualified by Independent National Electrical Commission INEC on account of under age.
As at the time I contested the election, I was already at the age of 37 years which was clearly stated on my voter's card with my date of birth clearly stated thus: 01/01/1982 & was submitted to INEC but wondered how the same INEC calculated my date of birth & arrived at 33 years that was used to disqualified me
It was on this note that I sued INEC at the Federal High Court, Lokoja, Kogi state with case file number FHC/LKJ/CS/133/2029 to ensure that my name was included on the ballot paper to enable me contest the election.
After two sittings on my case at the Court, I was surprised to hear that the prisiding judge has struck out my case. It was later I got to know that the elected State governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello bribed my own lawyer, Barr John Arome, the prisiding judge and the entire leadership of my Political party, All Blending Party ABP to withdraw my case
it's on this point that I'm soliciting for Financial Assistance to enable me reapeal the case and ensure that those behind my wrongful disqualification are brought to Justice as well as to ensure that I'm giving my right to contest in the election by nulifying the entire election conducted the INEC
it's my plan to reawake The case before the end of February 2022 if assisted

Mr Umaru Zekeri Bamaiyi joined politics in 2007. He contested as Chairman of Idah Local Government Area of Kogi State under the then "All Nigeria's People's Party" (ANPP) but the entire Election was manipulated by INEC to favour people's Democratic Party (PDP)
Prior to the 16th November 2019 Governorship election, Bamaiyi obtained nomination and interest form to contest for the eleBamaiyi's campaign Director, Comrade Ugbede Iduh to INEC headquarters in Lokoja, Kogi state.
During the protest, the national Commissioner, Mallam Haruna Muhammed who was incharge of the state election came and addressed the protesters, admitting on camera that INEC removed Bamaiyi's name because ABP fielded a 33 years old candidate as against 35 years as stipulated by electoral act. A development that attracts so many reactions.
As law abiding citizens, we dragged INEC to Federal High Court, Lokoja with case no (FHC/CS/33/ to seek a redress and ensure that the entire Election is nullified.
After two (2) sittings on the case, our lawyer, Barr. Jonh Arome request an order from the court to enable him play all his evidence in an open court so that the presiding judge will get the whole truth about INEC miscalculation of Bamaiyi's age that was used to disqualified him.
Considering the facts at our disposal and our desire to see that justice prevail, INEC and the current elected governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello Adoza bribed our lawyer and the entire leadership of Bamaiyi's party (ABP) and the case was withdrew from court without his consent. This is a great conspiracy against our today's democracy and a complete violation of human rights.
Well, it's not over yet as the case can still be reawaken with option B plan.
The option B plan is for us to file another case for Bamaiyi alone without the political party with immediate change of lawyers and ensure that the case will be transferred from Lokoja, Kogi state to Abuja, FCT..
In this option B plan, the INEC, Gov Alhaji Yahaya Bello Adoza and Barr John Arome would be sued for conspiracy and bribery.
Hence we are requesting for an urgent Special assistance of any amount from your reputable organisation to enable us see that justice prevail.ction under the political platform of "All Blending Party" (ABP). Just three weeks to the Election, we discovered that Bamaiyi's name was removed from the INEC final list of contesters that was released by INEC.

‘Arms’ importation must be checked’
By Ebele Boniface on July 26, 2013
A group yesterday launched a campaign against what it calls “worrisome proliferation of illegal arms and ammunition” in the country. It was at a media parley organised by members of Champion Youth Development Association of Nigeria (CHYDAN), a non-governmental organisation.
The conference with the theme: “Mapping out effort against armed violence in Nigeria,” was held at the Nigerian Railway Recreation Garden at Tejuosho, Yaba, Lagos Mainland.
The group urged the Federal Government to establish what it calls Merchant Navy Corps to check illicit importation or smuggling of arms and ammunition into the country through the high seas.
Its president, Umaru Ismail, said the Corps was first established by Lord Lugard in 1914 before it metamorphosed into the Nigerian Navy in 1958 from Merchant Navy Corps to combat pirates on the water-ways and the high seas.
He said if the Merchant Navy Corps is revived, it would checkmate the illicit importation or smuggling of arms and ammunition into the country.
He said it would prevent arms from getting into the wrong hands, thus fueling robbery, militancy and terrorism.
Mr Ikwa Ugom, who chairs CHYDAN’s disciplinary committee, said the Corps would checkmate the misuse of youths by politicians during elections. Ms Margerate Kataiko, its National Matron, said it would correct security lapses on the high seas and at sea ports.

CHYDAN wants FG to expose sponsors of Boko Haram
Aggrieved by the senseless killings and abduction of innocent youth across the country by Boko haram, CHYDAN has organized a three day national conference and asked the Federal Government of Nigeria to urgently expose members of terrorist groups and their sponsors as means of ensuring peace and unity. This programme was held at Ilorin, Kwara State in 2014.
CHYDAN denounces northern elites over insurgency
This programme was actually designed and held in Abuja to remind the northern elites once more that poverty, illiteracy, economic and social ruin, sectarian massacres and religious extremism are the chickens they hatched coming home to roast. During the 2011 presidential campaigns, we heard clearly when some of the evil northern politicians said they would make Nigeria ungovernable if Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Wins the election, and since he (Jonathan) won the election in 2011-2015, Nigeria has witnessed enough of bloodshed in the north. Who’s to be blame?
2015: Youths warns INEC against election malpractices
Considering the general perception of people that Nigeria will divide in 2015 general elections, CHYDAN has repeatedly organized series of programmes to orientate the youth on their roles before, during and after elections and has also warned INEC to deliver free, fair and credible elections to ensure peace and stability in the country. The grand finale of the convention was held at Enugu capital, Enugu State.

This programme was an emergency executive conference held at Yobe state to condemn the constant and wanton killings of innocent youth citizens in Yobe and Borno States as well to enable us plan and strategise on ways of ensuring peace in the states.

Boko Haram: ‘Check waterways for illegal arms’
This programme was purely a research work done to bring an end to inflow of illegal arms and ammunitions into the country. At the end of the programme which lasted for two weeks, we discovered that Boko Haram, Niger Delta Militants and others got their weapons through the waterways. Base on our findings, we then urged the FG to tighten security along the nation’s waterways and possibly re-establish the Merchant Navy to complements the efforts of the Nigeria Navy in order to address security challenges on waterways.

Youths Urge Jonathan To Drop Corrupt Ministers
2013 Daily trust newspaper
The Champions Youths Development of Nigeria (CHYDAN) made the call at a news conference in Lagos over the weekend, saying those found wanting should also be prosecuted.
“The president should weed out those cabinet members involved in corrupt practices, many have been investigated and found guilty yet they are still in the government.” President of the association, Comrade Umar Isma’il said.
According to him, many youths across the nation voted for the president in the last election so it is time for him to listen to them. The association also urged Nigerian leaders to desist from heating up the polity ahead of the 2015 general elections in order to avoid creating division in the country.
“The 2015 election should not divide Nigeria; we are therefore calling on them not to set Nigeria on fire while seeking to rule the nation”, he said. He expressed support for the proposed National Conference but cautioned against discarding its report. “Natural resources including oil in Nigeria are meant for all Nigerians and therefore let the national wealth go round to all in the nation”,he adlded
Association lauds Jonathan’s visit to Police College
Lagos – The Champions Youth Development Association of Nigeria (CHYDAN), on Sunday commended President Goodluck Jonathan for his surprise visit to assess the level of decay at the Nigeria Police College, Ikeja.
This is contained in a statement signed by Alhaji Umar Ismail, President of the association, which was made available to newsmen in Lagos.
Ismail said that such visit was the first by a sitting president since the establishment of the school.
He said the visit was an indication that the Federal Government was ready to address the problems facing the Nigeria Police and the nation’s security challenges.
According to him, we are highly impressed with the visit of Mr President to the Nigeria Police College, Ikeja.
“Nobody for once, thought that Mr President could personally come and inspect every department of the college
Since the establishment of the college over 70 years ago, no sitting president has visited the institution.
“Addressing security challenges in Nigeria in 2013 will be one of the ways through which the president can build the confidence of Nigerians.
We do pray and hope that he will touch other sectors, including power and job creations,’’ Ismail said.
He also commended the Inspector-General Mohammed Abubakar, for his efforts to reform the police and urged him to take adequate care of his men
Ismail advised the youth to maintain peace and avoid being used as instrument of crisis by some people who never meant well for the country. (NAN)
