The six Chairmen of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South South have endorsed the candidacy of Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege for the position of deputy senate president in the 9th assembly.
The chairmen made their position known in a letter written to President Muhammadu Buhari dated May 3 and made available to newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja.
The party’s Chairmen in Delta, Jones Erue; Bayelsa, Jothan Lalabunafa; Cross River, John Ochala; Akwa Ibom, Ini Okopido; Rivers, Ojukaye Amachree and Edo, Anslem Ojezua, signed the letter which copied the National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole’s office.
They thanked Buhari for “granting the region the privilege of producing the next deputy senate president of the Nigerian Senate.’’
According to them, we assure you that this gesture will help in strengthening our party in the South-South.
“We the people of the South-South geo-political zone of the Federal Republic of Nigeria herein represented by the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairmen in the six (6) states of the South-South geo-political zone congratulate you on your victory at the presidential elections.
“As we earnestly await your swearing-in on May 29, we wish to make our humble request on the zoning arrangement for the 9th assembly.
“After a careful look at the political dynamics in our geo-political zone and the zoning formula that your emergence has bestowed on us a people, we have taken cognizance of the senators who will represent the South-South in the 9th Senate, both their antecedents, background and suitability for the position sought.
“With a sense of responsibility, we do hereby convey to you our agreement to endorse Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege for the position of deputy senate president of the 9th assembly.
“Our choice has been majorly influenced (but not limited) by his loyalty to the Federal Republic of Nigeria; Your Excellency, the President and Commander in Chief; his proven capacity to support the president in the senate in executing your far-reaching programmes for the benefit of the Nigerian citizens,’’ they said.
According to them, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege had in recent past made sacrifices in the course of his very robust defense of executive bills and positions.
“The South-South region which we represent is not unmindful of it role in the emerging political dynamics of our dear country and the need for our great party to consolidate it presence thereto.
“In conclusion, Your Excellency we wish to thank you immensely for all the support and encouragement you have offered the South-South since the beginning of this administration,’’ they said.
South Sudan denies offering Egyptian military base bordering Ethiopia
“The ministry of foreign affairs and international cooperation hereby denies in the strongest terms possible, the information which has been circulated in the social media that the government of South Sudan has agreed to Egyptian request to build a military base in Pagak,” it said in a statement issued in Juba.
This came in the wake of media reports on Tuesday alleging that Juba will host the Egyptian military in Pagak area, which used to be the headquarters of the then rebel group Sudan People’s Liberation Army-in opposition (SPLA-IO) led by Riek Machar, who is now First Vice President in the transitional unity government.
“There is nothing of that kind, no agreement has been reached whatsoever to allocate a piece of land for Egyptian military base in the territory of the Republic of South Sudan,”
Egypt and Ethiopia are in dispute over Addis Ababa’s construction of the 6,000-MW Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD). Cairo fears that the GERD’s construction on the Blue Nile in northern Ethiopian highlands will disrupt Egypt’s share of the Nile‘s water.

WHO especially worried about Central and South America: WHO chief
World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Wednesday said that his organization is especially worried about Central and South America, where many countries are witnessing accelerating epidemics.
“For several weeks, the number of cases reported each day in the Americas has been more than the rest of the world put together,” he said.

IOM partners with South Sudan to enhance COVID-19 border surveillance
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) said Wednesday that it has entered into a partnership with the South Sudanese government and other United Nations agencies to ramp up surveillance at the country’s borders to curb the spread of COVID-19.
The UN migration agency said a joint team led by government officials recently completed assessment on the establishment of an entry point in Wunthou, Renk, a county bordering the Blue Nile state of Sudan.
With 40 to 50 trucks moving across the border each week, Renk has proven to be an important trading hub and is vital to the humanitarian aid lifeline connecting South Sudan and Sudan, Chauzy said.
“As a first step and before establishing a fully-fledged point of entry, infection prevention and control measures such as the installation of handwashing stations must be in place as well as proper management of suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19,” he said.
Chauzy said the team assessed the preparedness and capacity to carry out border management, and found that protracted disputes over demarcation between Sudan and South Sudan due to lack of shared intelligence, leaving movement across the borders uncoordinated.
Zacharia Modi, director of public health in the ministry of health, said: “It is an important step to ensure that while we keep borders open for essentials and humanitarian relief, we do so while taking precautions that protect the public from COVID-19 transmission.”
Modi noted the need to strengthen the capacities of local authorities, frontline officers and local partners in responding to the pandemic, including improving the current infrastructure that is not yet adequate to respond to the health crisis.
“We are very pleased that this joint assessment with the International Organization for Migration and other partners took place,” Modi said.

Relative calm has since returned to Juba after tribal and government authorities intervened to stop hundreds of rioting youth who earlier blocked roads with barricades and burning tires.
