Former Corps Marshall, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Osita Chidoka, has opened up on his relationship with former President Olusegun Obasanjo, resulting in his appointment as Nigeria's youngest leader of the FRSC. Chidoka, who later became Minister of Aviation in the administration of former president Goodluck Jonathan, made this known while addressing thousands of youths in Abuja on Saturday August 25, as one of the panellists, at "This Generation 2018 Conference," organized by The Summit Bible church. The programme, convened by Senior Pastor of the church, Andy Osakwe, brought seasoned political, religious, economic and business leaders together with thousands of youth. It sought to galvanize Nigerians into proactive engagement in all the various spheres of endeavour with the end goal of building a new Nigeria. Chidoka said: "I became acquainted with President Obasanjo. He was president at that time. One of the greatest things about president Obasanjo was that we had just one meeting. And, in the course of the meeting, he listened to me. At the end of the meeting, he said, and it was the then Minister of FCT, Nasir El-Rufai, that took me to that meeting. "He said: 'Young man, are you in Abuja?' I said yes. 'Would you like to work with me on something?' I said why would a president ask me to do something and I would say no. We started working. What did we work on? He said I should help him imagine how the PDP would look like after he leaves office." "It was in the course of that project, thinking about it and writing papers. At 2am, he would wake me and say 'Osita, are you sleeping?' Normal people are sleeping and you say you shouldn't be sleeping. Open page 50 of that document you wrote, look at page like four, five, six, make these corrections. He was a voracious reader. "So, when he was leaving, his last appointment in office was appointing me Corp Marshall. That was the last thing he did as President before he went and handed over. "So, I had no choice, I had a burden on me, I was aged 36. I had a burden to deliver on that result. Part of what was key was that I had to learn myself, I learnt from the organization. I learnt from the people working there. (This was because) when Road Safety was founded in 1888, I was just finishing secondary school. But, by 2007 that I got there, it had lost its way. It had lost the reason for its existence..."
For more than twenty- five minutes there was a disagreement among lawmakers on the floor of the Senate during Wednesday’s plenary in Abuja. The dispute started when the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, declined the request of former Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, who wanted to make a contribution to a matter raised by Senator Bassey Akpan from Akwa Ibom State. Senator Akpan, who is a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker, had alleged that the All Progressives Congress (APC) was planning to disrupt the elections in the state.
