By Golok Nanmwa,Jos

Plateau State Governor Simon Bako Lalong has congratulated Nwangele Godwin, a 25 year old Nigerian winner of the 2020 Rhodes Scholarship for West Africa who was born and brought up in Jos.

According to a statement signed by Dr. Makut Simon Macham  ,the
Director of Press and  Public Affairs to
the Executive Governor of Plateau State and made available to newsmen  reads that 6With his selection, Nwangele Godwin becomes the second Nigerian and the fourth recipient of the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship from the sub-continent since its re-launch in 2017.
Godwin, an Electrical and  Electronics Engineering graduate of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka was born in 1994 at the Ande Hospital and grew up in Tudun Wada area of Jos, Plateau State.
In a telephone call to Rhodes Scholar-Elect Nwangele, Governor Lalong expressed deep excitement on his achievement which is traced to Jos where he built his life’s early experience and knowledge base which has earned him the prestigious scholarship.
Lalong said “I congratulate you for being elected as a Rhodes Scholar which is a rare award that goes not only to the brightest, but to young people with dexterity and character that projects a future filled with hope and expectations”.
Lalong said this rare achievement is another testimony to the great minds that have emerged out of Plateau State and are making the country and the world proud.
“This achievement puts you in the exclusive list of great achievers that we are planning to celebrate during the Glorious Stars Event coming up in 2020 where we plan to tell the positive stories of Plateau State as we continue to rebrand and open up our potentials to the outside world. We are very proud of as a young ambassador of our State” the Governor explained.
He said the State realizes that the unfortunate crises of the recent past had sought to damage the hard-earned reputation and positive image of the State as the Home of Peace and Tourism as well as centre of learning, entertainment, sports and creativity.
This he said has to be countered with the right narratives which can be told simply and clearly by the testimonies of those who were groomed in Plateau State before being unleashed to the world where they made, and are still making huge impact.
The Governor encouraged Godwin to continue to be a good ambassador of Plateau State as he proceeds to Oxford University, United Kingdom, for his post graduate studies.
Godwin attended Albakans Pre-Science Private School, Tudun Wada-Jos before where he constantly maintained the top spot in his class and represented Plateau State at the NTIC Regional Mathematics Completion where he came tops, doing the State proud.
He went ahead to fly the colours of the State at the National Stage. He had his Secondary Education at St. John’s College, Jos where he also maintained top spot in his class, and also represented Plateau State at different competitions.
He later moved on to study Electrical Engineering at the University of Nigeria and graduated with a first class as the Best Graduating Student from the Faculty. He later received the COREN award as the Best Graduate Engineer in Nigeria for 2017.
He is currently carving out a niche in the renewable energy space of Africa, a dream he wants to live because of his love for mother earth, and the decision to join in the struggle to save earth and to redefine Africa.
Nwangele intends to study Energy Systems at Oxford and says his goal is to deepen his technical knowledge, enhance leadership skills, build valuable networks and develop a global strategy that would help to grow the vision of energy sustainability in Africa and beyond
Godwin was selected out of a total of 2,783 applications who registered as intending scholars for the 177 year old Rhodes scholarship which started in 1902 with past scholars including former US President Bill Clinton among other world leaders.
Godwin still lives the Jos dream of possibility even when it is thought to be very impossible.

December 24,2019

By Golok Nanmwa,Jos

Over 30 people were killed in the attacks which subsided with the reinforcement of peacekeeping troops but continued with isolated attacks, destruction of houses and farm crops.

Over 4000 of those displaced were camped in COCIN RCC Daffo and Bokkos but were later dismissed due to shortage of resources.

Six Months of Ninth House of Representatives:We are proud of Ahmed Idris Wase's participation and contributions.

December 23,2019

By Abubakar Muhammad Badu



The 9TH house of Representatives was inaugurated on the 11th of June, 2019 with the election of RT Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila as Speaker and RT. Hon.Ahmed Idris Wase as Deputy Speaker.Their emergence was a result of cumulative contribution of many ideas, personalities and ultimate  prayers  in the  Femi /Wase campaign train which cut across party lines to achieve National cohesion.

In the journey of four years the success so far recorded in the last six months is remarkable as a result of cordial relationship that exists amongst the leadership and  Members of the current House of Representatives as well as with Executive arm of government.

The Ninth  House of Reps, started on a peaceful note and and by the grace of God it will continue in that direction till the end of the tenure as the honorable members will continue to rise above partisan and divisive inclinations that will derail the progress of the Assembly and the Nation  as a Whole.

The spirit of oneness in the joint task of Nation building gave rise to the numerous successes recorded which include the passage of very important bills such as the deep off shore and inland basin production sharing contract act cap D3 L F N 2004 (Amendment bill 2019) which was assented to by  President Muhammadu Buhari. This law will add to a great extent revenues coming to the purse of the Federation from crude oil contracts for the benefit of all Nigerians.

The house also passed the finance bill 2019 which amended seven existing tax and fiscal policy laws for increase inflow of revenues as well as promote micro, small and medium enterprise to grow  better in a competitive environment.

The house also passed the 2020 appropriation bill on time with the commitment to returning the country back to the predictable January to December budget cycle.

The early passage of the 2020 budget cannot be of benefit if the cumbersome  procurement process is still in place hence the house passed the public procurement  act 2007 (amendment) bill to sanitize the public procurement process and curtail corruption which slows the pace of service delivery.

In as much as the successes recorded are enormous, the people of Wase Federal Constituency still call on the Deputy Speaker to continue to demonstrate the high standard of values he  is known for, in the coming years especially with the task of amending the Constitution.
We, in Wase Federal Constituency are proud to be associated with the humble and loyal participation of Rt. Hon.Ahmed Idris Wase in the processes that led to the unprecedented achievements so far recorded and pledge our unalloyed support for the nation's movement to the next level.


Thank you all
Long live Ahmed Idris Wase
Long live Wase Federal Constituency
Long live Federal Republic of Nigeria
