Manipulators wanted to use it for politics, but you did what you had to do to some of us and we challenged that. I believe in what you believe: transparency, honesty and integrity, making the people the cornerstone of every economy of a nation,” Mr Tinubu said.“But, I must thank you once again that no matter the level of things here and there, you did not falsely paint a crime and charge me falsely. Thank you, and in the spirit of this month of Ramadan, I have forgiven you everything and it is the truth. Some could have created chronic charges, even if the court will let you go, but you refused to use that office to abuse it, you refused to allow that. Thank you very much. You believe in what we believe, so we are expecting you to join the democratic struggles and liberate this country,” he said.He, however, asked Mr Ribadu to make good all the opportunity he has now to benefit the needs and yearnings of Nigerians, which he claimed had been deprived of quality leadership.“I have heard so many speculations in the papers. So make it real. We must take control of our future,” he said.The former Lagos State governor was accused of certificate forgery and shoddy dealings in the sale of the state’s N4 billion shares in the telecommunications outfit, Econet (now Zain) during his tenure, an allegation which he then denied.With his name still listed as one of those under prosecution for one case or the other, he said that the transaction was a “straightforward institutional investment”, which earned the state over N15 billion profit.Anti-democracy Berating how bad eggs that contributed to the annulment of June 12 are now also parading themselves as presidential aspirants and politicians in the country, Mr. Tinubu described them as dubious, saying “did they say they are democrats and they want to contest the next election and annul June 12? If they were, they would not have annulled June 12.”He said Nigeria only honours fraudulent men and those that have no reason for receiving national honours.“Look at the annual list of our national honour award. Only those that are known for their notoriety and contributions to economic instabilities are there,” he said.Sitting beside Atiku Abubakar and Bola Tinubu, Mr. Ribadu has also been linked to the 2011 presidential race and has promised that all Nigeria needs now is a youthful leadership, which he is set to grant.A delegate of the National Association of Nigerian Students, led by Agbabiaka Ahmed, also stormed the venue of the event at exactly 1:08pm to call for the establishment of voters registration centres on university campuses.

As the father of two young daughters, I know that being a father is one of the most important jobs any man can have.

My own father left my family when I was two years old. I was raised by a heroic mother and wonderful grandparents who provided the support, discipline and love that helped me get to where I am today, but I still felt the weight of that absence throughout my childhood. It's something that leaves a hole no government can fill. Studies show that children who grow up without their fathers around are more likely to drop out of high school, go to jail, or become teen fathers themselves.

And while no government program can fill the role that fathers play for our children, what we can do is try to support fathers who are willing to step up and fulfill their responsibilities as parents, partners and providers. That's why last year I started a nationwide dialogue on fatherhood to tackle the challenge of father absence head on.

In Chicago, the Department of Health and Human Services held a forum with community leaders, fatherhood experts and everyday dads to discuss the importance of responsible fatherhood support programs. In New Hampshire, Secretary of Education Duncan explored the linkages between father absence and educational attainment in children. In Atlanta, Attorney General Holder spoke with fathers in the criminal justice system about ways local reentry organizations, domestic violence groups and fatherhood programs can join together to support ex-offenders and incarcerated individuals who want to be closer to their families and children.

Now we're taking this to the next level. Tomorrow, I'll make an announcement about the next phase of our efforts to help fathers fulfill their responsibilities as parents -- The President's Fatherhood and Mentoring Initiative. You can learn more at www.fatherhood.gov.

This Father's Day -- I'm thankful for the opportunity to be a dad to two wonderful daughters. And I'm thankful for all the wonderful fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers and friends who are doing their best to make a difference in the lives of a child.

Happy Father's Day.

Sincerely, President Barack Obama

VIDEO: The President after 100 days

engr.dr.samuel.adeniyi. --

Yesterday, President Obama marked his 100th day in office by getting out of Washington and going right to the heartland of America, conducting a town hall meeting in Arnold, Missouri. And last night, he came directly into the living rooms of millions of Americans in his third prime time press conference as President.

I hope you had a chance to hear from him yesterday about all we have accomplished. He's pleased with our progress, but not satisfied -- there's still so much left for all of us to do to achieve affordable health care, a 21st century education system, and a clean energy future.

The President puts it best himself, so if you didn't catch him yesterday, please take a moment to watch this video and share it with friends.

The biggest challenges are still ahead, and meeting them will require all of us working together. That's why the President is depending on Organizing for America and people just like you to overcome the critics and the naysayers and to bring lasting change to America. So stay tuned for more ways to get involved -- this is only the beginning.

Please watch the President's remarks, and share the video with friends:

Thanks for making this moment possible, and for all the victories yet to come.

Tomorrow will mark the President's hundredth day in office. A lot of attention will be given to this largely symbolic day, and the truth is that what we do every day after it will be just as important -- if not more. But our accomplishments in this time have been remarkable, and they're having real effects on people and communities throughout the country.

You built the movement that made this possible, and it's up to you to show Americans that real change can happen when ordinary citizens work together.

Explore this interactive map to learn about the progress we've made in the last 100 days and the stories of real Americans whose lives have already been touched. Then spread the word by passing it along to your friends and family.

With the country in crisis, the President took office and acted quickly to restore confidence and stability to our economy. But just as important were the steps we've taken toward building a new foundation for our prosperity, so that we never go back to the system that led us to crisis in the first place.

In just one hundred days, we've made crucial investments to create jobs and improve education, energy, and health care. All of this is a down payment for a new economic vision -- one where skilled workers fuel our economy rather than debt and speculation; one where American leadership on clean energy fuels 21st century innovation; and one where families and businesses are no longer weighed down by crushing health care costs.

Delivering on the promise of change is the reason we built this movement. Now, President Obama is counting on all of us to build support for this foundation and create a lasting recovery for America.

Take a look now at these critical first steps we've taken together and pass it on for others to see:

http://my.barackobama.com/100days

This new direction would not have been possible without you. But our biggest tests are yet to come, and the future is ours to shape. Let's seize this moment together so history will show that, at this defining crossroads, a generation of Americans put their country on the path to long-term security and prosperity.

Thank you,

David Plouffe

Urge President-elect Obama to Make Pay Equity a Top Priority

  engr.dr.samuel.adeniyi ajanaku421 seward sq se dcdc, DC 20003-2000
  January 13, 2009
Barack ObamaPO Box 8102Chicago, IL 60680
Re: Make Pay Equity a Top Priority
Dear President-elect Obama:

I join with the American Association of University Women (AAUW) in congratulating you on becoming our next President, and I thank you for your leadership in the area of pay equity. I also urge you to exercise your considerable leadership and influence to ensure that the Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the Paycheck Fairness Act bills are among the first you sign into law after you assume the office. I ask you to urge the Senate to take up both bills together, in the next week.

Enacting both bills, in tandem, is critical to achieving pay equity for women: the Ledbetter Fair Pay Act rights the wrongs done by the Supreme Court, regaining ground we've lost and ensuring people who've been discriminated against can seek vindication. The Paycheck Fairness Act would create stronger incentives for employers to follow the law as well as strengthen penalties for violations, strengthen federal outreach, education and enforcement, and prohibit retaliation against workers who ask about employers' wage practices. Passing both of these important bills together is crucial. One bill fixes a past mistake, and the other helps ensure that such a mistake won't happen again.

As the 2007 AAUW report Behind the Pay Gap shows, women just one year out of college working full time earn only 80 percent of what their male counterparts earn, even when they work in the same field. With a record number of women in the workforce, wage discrimination hurts the majority of American families. As a vocal supporter of Lilly Ledbetter, the bill that bears her name, and the Paycheck Fairness Act, you could send a strong message by signing these bills into law as one of your first acts as our new President.

Women tend to be hurt first and worst during economic downturns. Especially in these tough times, equal pay for equal work is a necessary step towards achieving economic security for all Americans. Together, the bills can help create a climate where pay discrimination is not tolerated, and give your new administration the enforcement tools it needs to make real progress on pay equity.

Again, I urge you support both the Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the Paycheck Fairness Act to ensure the change hard working Americans need to receive equal pay. Thank you for your leadership on this issue. I look forward to your response.

  Sincerely,

Dear Samuel.Adeniyi.:

Thank you for advising me of your support for the establishment of personal retirement accounts within the Social Security system. I appreciate hearing your comments on this extremely important issue.

Although no Social Security reform legislation has been formally considered on the Senate floor this session, I have been following this discussion closely. I understand that some adjustments may need to be made to preserve the financial integrity of the program for current beneficiaries and to assure that workers who are paying Social Security taxes today get a solid return on their investment when they eventually retire. However, it is important to also remember that Social Security provides an important safety net to millions of older Americans, and that commitment should be respected. And, as we evaluate any reform proposal, we should not ignore the implications for today's workers, and their children, of the government potentially borrowing trillions of dollars to pay for the transition to private accounts at a time of historically high federal deficits and escalating national debt. After all, we are creating a crushing financial burden that will fall on the next generation to pay off.

It is my hope that the effort to “reform†Social Security will be undertaken in a bipartisan spirit that protects the basic integrity of the Social Security program. Seniors have lived up to their end of the bargain, and workers who are paying into the system have the right to the expectation of a reasonable return on their investment in the Social Security System when they retire. The government must live up to its responsibility in this contract as it looks for ways to protect the investment of current workers.

Again, thank you for contacting me about Social Security reforms. Please stay in touch in the days ahead.

Sincerely,

Barack Obama
United States Senator

Dear engr.dr.samuel.adeniyi ajanaku,

Thank you. Barack Obama's historic election as president is in
no small part due to the hard work of people like you. From the
primaries through Election Day, thousands of you showed that
this election was too important to sit on the sidelines. I have
been so proud to hear the stories of AFT members making their
voices heard by volunteering in the field, hosting debate-watch
parties, sharing their stories and photos from the campaign
trail, answering surveys about the issues and candidates, and so
much more. The AFT's e-Activists truly have demonstrated
democracy in action.

This is a tremendous victory, but it is a beginning, not an end.
President-elect Obama inherits considerable challenges--a severe
economic crisis, a broken healthcare system, the need to revamp
federal education law once and for all to address the
unacceptable achievement gap between students from different
backgrounds, enormous infrastructure strains, and American
troops engaged in two wars. Our elected officials have huge
tasks ahead of them, and our continued civic engagement will be
crucial. We must continue to be heard. We must remain active
participants in our great democracy. The AFT e-Activist program
will continue to provide a way.

Again, thank you for all you did to bring about this great
victory. We couldn't have done it without you.

In unity,

Randi Weingarten
AFT president

Barack Obama Nominate. Debo.Adegbile

To:
Sen. Harry Reid

January 13, 2014

Please Support Cast Your Vote And Confirm Debo Adegbile
==============================================================
Civil rights groups are applauding President Barack Obama's nomination Thursday night of Debo Adegbile, one of their own, to head the Department of Justice civil rights division.
"Debo Adegbile is one of the pre-eminent civil rights litigators of his generation," said Wade Henderson, president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, who led a telephone conference call today on the nomination. Henderson said he hopes and expects the Senate to confirm Adegbile for the position swiftly and with bipartisan support.
"We are absolutely thrilled that President Obama nominated one of our very own," said Leslie Proll, director of the Washington office of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF) where Adegbile worked for a decade.
Adegbile, 46, would be the fourth head of the civil rights division with LDF experience, following in the footsteps of Drew Days III, Deval Patrick and Bill Lann Lee. Sherrilyn Ifill, the current president and director counsel of the fund, said Adegbile is superbly qualified for the "critical work" of the division because of his "deep experience and understanding of civil rights litigation and civil rights law."

Dear Dr. Ajanaku:
Thank you for contacting me regarding the nomination of Harriet Miers to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Associate Justice Sandra Day O’Connor on the United States Supreme Court. I appreciate hearing your thoughts on this very important matter.
The Constitution created checks and balances among the three branches of government. Article II of the Constitution gives the President the authority to nominate individuals to the Supreme Court and to other federal courts, and it gives the Senate the important responsibility of carefully evaluating judicial nominees and exercising independent judgment in deciding whether or not to confirm them. The Senate’s constitutional obligation to advise and consent on the President's nominations to the federal judiciary is particularly important given that these are lifetime positions.
As you may know, Harriet Miers currently serves as the White House Counsel for President Bush. In addition, she has held several other positions under President Bush, including Deputy Chief of Staff and Staff Secretary. From 1995 to 2000, Harriet Miers served under then Governor Bush as chair of the Texas Lottery Commission. Ms. Miers has also spent portions of her career as a commercial litigator, President of the Dallas Bar Association, President of the Texas State Bar, and a member of the Dallas City Council.
Justices on the Supreme Court make decisions that directly affect the lives of millions of Americans. I take the Senate’s constitutional role to ‘advise and consent’ very seriously. This is one of the most challenging and important decisions I am called upon as a U.S. Senator to make. I am reviewing Harriet Miers record and will closely follow her confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee before reaching a decision on her nomination.
Thank you again for contacting me.
Sincerely,
Carl Levin

Dear Dr. Ajanaku:
Thank you for your recent correspondence regarding Judge Samuel Alito, President Bush's nominee to serve on the United States Supreme Court. There is no better guide for making tough decisions than hearing from the people whom I serve.
I take the duty of confirming Presidential nominations in the U.S. Senate very seriously. The Constitution gives the Senate the responsibility of scrutinizing the President's nominees and ensuring that they are well qualified and capable of carrying out their duties effectively for the American people. In a time when judges routinely legislate from the bench and create policies that have not been approved by Congress, this means that, in addition to the nominee's legal credentials, judicial philosophy should also be the criteria by which the Senate determines his or her qualifications to serve as a Supreme Court Justice.
Judge Alito certainly possesses the legal credentials necessary to serve on the Supreme Court. He has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit since 1990, when he was unanimously confirmed by the Senate. Prior to this service, Judge Alito served as U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey, where he prosecuted white collar and environmental crimes, drug trafficking, organized crime, and violations of civil rights. Moreover, he has argued 12 cases before the Supreme Court, and numerous others before the federal courts of appeals.
The Senate Judiciary Committee, of which I am a member, has scheduled Judge Alito's hearings for the second week in January, 2006. During those hearings, I intend to question Judge Alito to better understand whether he possesses a modest judicial philosophy in keeping with the Constitution, or an expansive view of the federal judiciary. Rest assured that I will keep your thoughts in mind as the confirmation process moves forward.
Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me about this important issue. You are the reason that I am here, and I look forward to hearing from you in the future. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of further assistance and feel free to visit my website at brownback.senate.gov for information on the issues on which I am working.

Dear Dr. ajanaku:

Thank you for contacting my office regarding the nomination of Judge John G. Roberts Jr. for Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States . I appreciate hearing from you.

John Roberts is regarded as one of the brightest legal minds of his generation. He currently serves as a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, a court that is commonly viewed as the second most powerful and prestigious court in the nation.

Roberts attended Harvard College , and then studied at Harvard Law graduating magna cum laude. He clerked for Judge Friendly of the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and then for Associate Justice Rehnquist of the Supreme Court.

Following his clerkships, Judge Roberts served as a special assistant to the Attorney General at the Department of Justice where he dealt with constitutional and law enforcement issues. He moved to the Reagan White House where he served as Associate White House Counsel before returning to the Department of Justice to become Deputy Solicitor General in the Administration of George H.W. Bush.

In 1992, Judge Roberts began his private law practice, in constitutional and appellate law. On behalf of his clients, he has argued 39 cases before the Supreme Court.

In 2001, President Bush nominated Judge Roberts to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. At his confirmation hearing, the American Bar Association gave Judge Roberts its highest rating of "unanimous well-qualified." This rating is reserved for nominees who are at the top of the legal profession, have the utmost integrity, and demonstrate proper judicial temperament. For this judicial nomination, the Senate unanimously confirmed Judge Roberts.

As Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I look forward to ensuring Judge Roberts receives a thorough and fair confirmation hearing. Decisions by the Supreme Court can have a significant impact, and because of this, I take the Senate's role in the confirmation process very seriously.

Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office or visit my website at http://specter.senate.gov . Thank you again for writing.
Sincerely,

Arlen Specter
