WHY I AM RUNNING FOR AMAC CHAIRMANSHIP – ODOH MICHAEL

Spread the love

My decision to contest for the chairmanship of the Abuja Municipal Area Council is simply because I want to make a difference. Those worse hit by bad governance is the people in the grassroots.

A lot of people like me have continued to criticize our present system of governance, we are advocating for a restructured Nigeria but I have always thought that if we can get it right at the local government level with this present structure, we would have solved a lot of our problems.

Our local government system has become an avenue for looting. Despite the revenue from the FG and internally generated revenue, there is nothing to show for it all over the country. Some state governors do not even consider that arm an important aspect of governance, they refuse to conduct LG elections, they appoint cronies who know nothing about governance to act as caretaker chairmen of LGs in their various states, those who conduct elections only do so as a mere formality, the people have had no say on who leads them especially on the level that concerns them the more. I am running for the chairmanship of AMAC because I want us to get it right at the local government level.

I once read the present chairman saying AMAC has no funds to execute the kind of projects he would have loved to do as chairman and I am forced to ask, how do you expect to have much when you have only two sources of income for the area council?

AMAC depends on revenue from the FG and taxation as its source of income and most of these funds go into recurrent expenditure, which in itself is bad. As chairman, I will help secure AMAC’s financial future. Research shows that places like Orozo are good farming areas, we will build an industrial farm in partnership with the private sector in Orozo just like what we have in Nasarrawa State. We will own a huge share in this and it will be run by the private sector and like every other investor, we will be getting our profit at the end of every year. This farm will include a rice mill, a palm oil processing plant, a ranch, fish pond among many other things. This will also help to create jobs.

We will invest in financial technology. Look at what companies such as Paystack, Flutterwave, Monnify, and others are doing. We will encourage young people to go into this and we would invest in it. Financial technology is the way forward and AMAC will not be left out.

There is a young man in Plateau State who is doing great in manufacturing farming, his name is Jerry Malo. I hope to invest in such a lucrative investment for AMAC. We are presently studying the possibility of setting up a waste recycling plant in the industrial area in partnership with the private sector. Also, the transportation section will not be left out, we have plans to challenge Uber and Bolt in Abuja, we are already speaking to investors. My strategy team has studied all of this and let me tell you, if my plans are fully implemented, we will become richer than a lot of states. Leaders must begin to think outside the box for homegrown solutions to our problems.

I aim to secure AMAC’s financial future by creating jobs, having a business-friendly environment by reducing taxation, and getting the private sector involved. AMAC needs more money to fix our roads, develop our decaying education system and we can only achieve this when we have more funds at our disposal. I am bringing a new way of doing things. I just want us to get things right. I am not just here to contest, I am here to provide people-based, youth and women-friendly leadership in AMAC.

  2. Short sales often take a notoriously long time to close. Enter the federal Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives program, or HAFA, which helps the buyer and seller by speeding up the short sale process. “It’s not perfect by any means,” Daubenmeyer says. “But it has created a timeline that we can hold the mortgage lenders accountable.” The name “short sale” can be deceiving — these deals can drag on for months. Some sellers assume they can start this process on a whim, Daubenmeyer says. “It’s not a ‘get out of jail free’ card,” she says. “You have to qualify for a short sale.” Wallace notes this is merely a way to track homes that may become short sales — but far from a guarantee that they will. “Most of the time, they find a way to make mortgage payments,” she says. “But it’s an indication of who’s having trouble paying the mortgage, and there’s going to be a lot of those right now,” she adds, given the coronavirus pandemic and associated economic crisis. https://www.thediplomatnetwork.com/community/profile/lorenzolau36274/ Our wreaths are handmade to order by skilled artisans, using flowers and herbs grown on 20 acres of farmland in Central California. In South Carolina, where African Americans have been disproportionately affected by partition laws, the law is named after Clementa C. Pinckney, a former Democratic state senator and an advocate for changes in partition law who was killed in the 2015 mass shooting at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston. The agriculture industry has radically transformed over the past 50 years. Advances in machinery have expanded the scale, speed, and productivity of farm equipment, leading to more efficient cultivation of more land. Seed, irrigation, and fertilizers also have vastly improved, helping farmers increase yields. Now, agriculture is in the early days of yet another revolution, at the heart of which lie data and connectivity. Artificial intelligence, analytics, connected sensors, and other emerging technologies could further increase yields, improve the efficiency of water and other inputs, and build sustainability and resilience across crop cultivation and animal husbandry.

A person with a valid authorization to use medical cannabis under the federal Cannabis Act may consume medical cannabis in an outdoor public place where smoking or vaping is permitted by the Smoke-Free Environment Act, 2005, but cannot consume cannabis in a motor vehicle. For any Rookie grower with few resources and little space, the best option is to buy marijuana seeds. Cannabis plants will be born without any problem or genetic decay. However, for more experienced Breeders and lovers of creating new hybrids, clone breeding is the best option. Once all the proper documentation is received, you will be assigned a new client number. This client number will be unique to the sale of live plants, and will be separate from any existing account you may currently have for the purchase of dried cannabis from Delta 9.
