The aspirant, Kogi East Senatorial District on the platform of the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA), Comrade Amade Godwin Edime deems it imperative to keep the general public and particularly, the teaming supporters of our great party, abreast with the state of affairs of the party in Kogi East and other general pressing issues, amidst varied insinuations in the current Nigeria’s political sphere.

Comrade Edime likes to use this medium to correct misconceptions in some quarters that APDA was one of the political parties that recently formed a merger; the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP). He says, for the purpose of clarity, APDA was never part of the merger.

Meanwhile, Edime, a former Vice President, National Affairs, National Association of Nigerian Students, (NANS), expresses his commendation to the current eighth National Assembly for passing the bill on the financial autonomy of the State Houses of Assembly and that of the Judiciary. He, in the like manner extends his commendation to President Muhammadu Buhari for giving accent to the said Bill.

Moreover, he promises that if given the chance to represent the great people of Kogi East, he will pursue the Bill that will eventually grant the local governments autonomy which has, up to this present moment, been handled with levity.

Prominent Nigerians have continued to rain encomiums on Comrade Amade Godwin Edime for declaring his intention to run for the senatorial seat of Kogi East Federal Constituency.

A protuberant legal luminary and onetime senior director at the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Barrister Shehu Aminu (Esq) added his own voice to the avalanche of affirmative echoes of Comrade Edime’s decleared ambition to represent the Kogi East people in the National Assembly, in the early hours of today, Tuesday, July 31 2018.

Barrister Shehu said he harbored no doubts that Comrade Edime’s real reason for throwing his hat into the contest for the senatorial seat was predicated upon his determined desire to serve selflessly, adding that deep inside the comrade was the desire to touch the lives of his people positively.

He Stated: “I will support you in any way I can because I know that deep inside you, you want to touch the lives of your people positively.

Barrister Shehu attested that he had known Comrade Edime for a long time now and that Nigeria needed an energetic and persevering person like him (Edime). The experienced Attorney further testified to the personality of the Comrade as a man who usually stayed true to any course he believed in, come rain, come shine.

In his words: “Nigeria needs energetic and persevering persons like you. I know you; you always stay true to a course, come rain, come shine. The Katsina-born lawyer however prayed God to crown Comrade Edime’s efforts with good success.

I Fight For The Poor- Comrade Edime

It all began one fateful early night when I decided to take a ride with Comrade Amade Godwin Edime in his car around some locations in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. Coincidentally, it rained cat and dog that night and, as usual, the haste with which commuters moved to get to their respective destinations was comparable to that of an athlete in pursuit of a gold medal.

Somehow, we had to get to somewhere in Garki for some sumptuous meal to clear our heads and be able to discuss some pressing issues of social and political importance. This was after a long and hectic day without a remembrance to attend to the concerns of the ‘middle belt’.

That settled, we set out again. The rain wasn’t subsiding any bit and Abuja street lights were nowhere in sight. Everywhere was so scarily dark that its combination with the downpour gave no chance at all for speed on the road. So we moved as slowly as a snail and extremely careful too, perhaps, to avoid any unintended eventuality.

With all that difficulty in driving and chaos on the road, we found ourselves at a T-junction of a dual carriage way. We however managed to drive pass the first crossing, then temporarily stopped in the middle so as to give way to the traffic on the left as the law specifies: “at any roundabout or junction, left is right”.
As if we were onlookers of a drama that we were also actors at the same time, a tricycle rider (Keke) from behind our own vehicle ran very closely past us and the next thing we heard was a heavy bang on the car that shook us in the car as though it was a bigger vehicle that almost to overran us.

Comrade Amade, The Long Awaited Steward

It is far better to go to war with a single lion than being in the company of one hundred sheep. The structure of today’s Nigerian Senate is such that if care is not taken, the presence of men of accomplishment would intimidate any lily-livered man from uttering a single word at every plenary.
Talking about the structure of today’s Nigerian Senate, the first thing that comes to mind is that, it’s the haven for retired governors. Then you still remember that it houses so many past and expired political leaders and statesmen who have refused to relinquish power to the younger generation.
Unfortunately, so many young enterprising politicians who eventually made their way to the upper legislative chamber have found themselves so cowed by these ‘national luggage’ that their constituencies never get to benefit their due of the ‘national cake’.
Apart from being intimidated, the younger senators erroneously think that they can use the shoulders of their so called senior distinguished colleagues to rise to higher political ladder like becoming governors and so, they would never want to contest with them to get their share of anything in the senate.
But for a man like Edime who has helped install governors and other senior political leaders through unshakable loyalty and hard work predicated upon fearless assertion of his stance on truth by effective activism, Kogi East is sure to make a conspicuous presence this time at the national stage.

 “Amade needs no introduction to me; I have known him since he was a young boy. He has been in the struggle for the emancipation of the Igala people. Everyone knows that.”

These were the exact words of the Ojogba of Ife, His Royal Highness, Chief Boniface Musa, when the leadership and members of the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance paid him a courtesy visit at his palace in Abejukolo today, the 21st of July, 2018.

This happened when the Omala Local Government APDA party leader Engr. Ede wanted to introduce Comrade Amade to him (His Highness) in order to observe protocols. But to the amazement of all, the Royal Father told the entire gathering that Amade wasn’t such a man who needed to be introduced to him as he (His Highness), was well abreast with all the exploits of the Senatorial Aspirant in the entire Igala land.

The Royal Father described Comrade Amade Edime as a man whose heartbeat for the liberation of the Igala people was unstoppably strong and long.

The people could not hide their joy as they trooped out in their thousands to herald the entrance of APDA, Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance and Comrade Amade Godwin Edime, the Kogi East Senatorial hopeful of the party to their domain!
Even more bountiful was the blessing of the Ojogba of Ife, His Royal Highness, Chief Boniface Musa.
Therefore waste no further time to join this moving train as the wave at the moment is like a Hurricane.
The queue is getting longer by the day. Join now and be a stakeholder in the next government. APDA...! Stronger Together.

Revealed: How APDA's Simplicity Will Bring Her Victory in 2019.


The level of simplicity in the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance-APDA has been identified to be the selling point of the political party that will eventually earn her the much needed victory in the coming elections.

Comrade Amade Godwin Edime made this revelation while addressing a cross section of Kogi East legislative aspirants on the platform of the party over the weekend in Lokoja.

The visibly blazing Comrade on the day charged the prospective legislators in attendance to be motivated by the simplicity of the party which he said was a signal of the party's victorious outing in the coming polls.

Comrade Edime who is also contesting the Senate seat of Kogi East Senatorial District on the same platform insisted that complications and internal wrangling were catalysts of destruction of political parties. But in APDA, he assured, there were minimum complications, he declared.

He stated: "I was in the Peoples Democratic Party-PDP for about 16 years. I also sojourned in the All Progressives Congress-APC for a while, and in all, I never lost any election. But the battle for supremacy of individuals in these political parties takes premium over service delivery to the people.

It was a terrible and horrible campus to live on at the Lokoja Campus of the Kogi State Polytechnic during the reign of the erstwhile military administrator of the state, late Colonel Bzigu Lassa Afakirya. Colonel Afakirya was posted to Kogi State by the Sani Abacha military junta.

It so happened that students of the campus were confronted with untold hardship of staying on long and thick queues before accessing water for drinking, washing and other domestic uses. As if that was not enough, overcrowding in hostels was painfully accepted as a norm as rooms originally designed to house four occupants were overstretched to squeeze-in between 12 to 15 students.

More so, the appalling condition of the hostel accommodation necessitated mass exodus of students to seek the comfort that off campus accommodation provided, regardless of its accompanying exorbitance in the cost, inconvenience and danger of having to move at night and all that. Safety was first on their priority list.

Worse still, lack of other life’s necessities like decent public conveniences, overgrown bushes in and around the few hostels that were on campus as at that time provided safe haven for dangerous reptiles like snake which left students so vulnerable at all times in the school i.e. both day and night.

As the race to the 2019 Kogi East senatorial election hots up, the Forum of Igala Journalists (FORIJA) have thrown their weight behind the senatorial ambition of Comrade Amade Godwin Edime.

The forum at her monthly meeting yesterday September 1, 2018 had assured Comrade Edime of full media support when it played host to the vibrant Comrade.

Taking turns to address Comrade Edime, members expressed their displeasure over the abysmal performances of the previous representatives from Kogi East urging him to be different.

Speaking, Mr Jerry Ocheme of the Africa Independent Television (AIT) and Ray Power, who is the Public Relations Officer (P.R.O.) of the Forum charged Edime not to toy with the power of the media.

Ocheme said: "You are the only politician that we have invited so far to this noble Forum because we know your passion for our people. But remain accessible when you get there so that you can still be bold enough to approach us some other time."

Elder Reuben Okala, a veteran broadcaster of the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA); Mr Ndanusa Ocholi, the pioneer president of the Forum who is also the Managing Editor of Daily Asset Newspaper; Alhaji Idris Isah formerly with The Nation Newspaper and currently National Express, all narrated their ugly experiences with some Igala politicians which they said Edime should guide against.
