professor of legal history at Harvard is the author with Peter S Onuf of Most Blessed of the Patriarchs: Thomas Jefferson and the Empire of the ImaginationYou would expect it in a young country — a country made up of people from all over the world a country born of the highest ideals yet made possible by the violent displacement of one group of people and the enslavement of another We in the United States have been arguing about extolling criticizing loving challenging and defending the American experiment from the country’s inception What is the nature of the equality of which Jefferson spoke in the Declaration of Independence Was it for all people What of his phrase life liberty and the pursuit of happinessIn the earliest days only a select group of voices could be heard on these matters White property-owning males were the dominant force in setting the nation’s political and economic agenda But over the years white women blacks — enslaved and free — and newly arrived immigrants wondered what the American experiment should mean for them Whenever able they and their allies sought to shape their meanings by insisting that the country’s seemingly boundless promise be open to themThese efforts have always required questioning and adjusting the American narrative in ways large and small The most major adjustment of course was the Civil War which destroyed legalized chattel slavery and set the stage for the transformation of the Constitution The amendments to that document began the long struggle to bring African Americans into equal citizenship Women of all races fought for and won the right to vote the right to control their bodies and the right to participate in every aspect of American life This process almost always driven by law has played itself out inexorably as other groups have sought to become full-fledged members of "the people" referred to in the preamble to the ConstitutionBut as Frederick Douglass famously noted "Power concedes nothing without a demand" There has always been resistance to transforming the American narrative The restless nature of our society frightens many who would narrowly circumscribe the amount and nature of change to be absorbedStanding still however has not been the American way We seem programmed to move forward as we reassess aspects of any given status quo In this spirit on college campuses and in other venues across the nation people are demanding a heightened level of awareness over the messages that language and the physical environment convey about who is entitled to fit comfortably in America We are asked to think of what it means for example to be a black student assigned to a dormitory named to honor a person who believed that black people were inferior beings fit only for slavery or for a second-class and segregated existence Why should there be monuments to people who sought to destroy the US and to maintain slavery until they were ready to end it if ever Things that are taken for granted perhaps should not beThe quest for a reformed and inclusive American narrative one that recognizes the value of all people has not been easy But if our history is any judge the battle will continue so long as we hold true to the best of our ideals The US has ever been and will likely always be an evolving experimentFew hours after the release of the former petroleum Minister and elder statesman Dr Shettima Ali Monguno the JTF in Borno state has said that its men had rescued the parents of a federal House reps member representing Borno north who were abducted at their resident Ngamdu in Kaga local government area of Borno state Father of the federal legislator Mallam Sanda Sheriff 80 years of age told DailyPost in Maiduguri that he was abducted along with his wife

they moved us into one of the car a bus which they stole in our village and took us to a place where they change the vehicle They were taking us to somewhere in the bush when they suddenly stopped the vehicle and took to their heels After a while we saw the soldiers who came to rescue us and they brought us here(JTF HQ)” He said the kidnappers took away all their money and were told that they were being kidnapped because of their son who is a member of the house of representative He said that they held that he has not been helping his constituency since he was elected into the house Speaking to the JTF spokesman Lt Col Sagir Musa on the abduction of the parents of the legislator pleaded that the name of the said legislator should not be mentioned for security reason but that the JTF has got in touch with the legislator who is making arrangement on how to received his parents from the JTF headquarters in Maiduguri The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company EEDC has restated its stand on the controversy over power distribution within the Ariara Market DAILY POST reports that the contention is between the EEDC and Ariara Market Energy Solution Limited (AMESL) a company spearheading the Ariaria Independent Energy Distribution Network IEDN The Ariaria experiment is said to be a private sector driven project owned by Ariaria Market Energy Solution Limited (AMESL) which aims to generate and distribute off-grid power to the 32000 shops in Ariaria Touble had started following the announcement by the Rural Electrification Agency (REA) an Agency of the Federal Government to initiate a rural electrification programme whereby it proposed grid power generation and distribution to Universities and some strategic markets including Ariaria Market in Abia However it was later learnt that the company licensed to operate within the Ariaria Market was private investor and not government-owned Besides the EEDC is also canvasing that the Ariaria area of operation is within its business circle and that it was not ready to concede same to any other company The company said to fight the alleged trespass it had sent a Notice of Objection dated 15th March 2018 to NERC and had as well instituted legal proceedings at the Federal High Court of Nigeria Umuahia Judicial Division seeking declaratory and injunctive reliefs as well as damages Already the court presided over by DE Osiagor has granted an order of interim injunction restraining the AMESL from constructing or continuing the construction of an Independent Electricity Distribution Network within EEDC’s electricity distribution licensed area Also in a statement by EEDC management made available to Orient Daily by its head of communications Mr Chukwuemeka Ezeh titled: “Setting the Record Straight” the company recalled that “between 2003 and 2010 there were a number of incidents of fire outbreak at the Timber Market in Ariaria Market which usually damaged the electricity distribution facilities in the area The damaged facilities include: the 300KV substation low tension poles insulators and aluminum conductors worth several hundred millions of Naira As a result of this the attention of Abia State government was necessary to provide a lasting solution to the incessant fire outbreaks It was subsequently agreed that the Timber Market would be relocated “Before the relocation was effected the privatisation occurred and the franchise was handed over to the Core Investor Interstate Electrics Limited The situation of Ariaria Market was brought to the attention of the Board of Directors The Board duly approved funding towards the rehabilitation of the facilities destroyed by the fire outbreak “The efforts to commence the refurbishment replacement and reconnection of the traders in Ariaria Market were however constrained by a suit filed at the Federal High Court Abuja by Geometrics Aba Power Limited claiming that the Federal Government of Nigeria had in 2005 granted it a lease over the assets and customers in Aba and Ariaria geographical area and as a result their company was entitled to manage upgrade refurbish and administer customers within the said geographical area The suit also sought several injunctive reliefs against EEDC regarding the Aba/Ariaria geographical area “Owing to the pendency of the suit and the various injunctive reliefs being claimed before the Court EEDC was unable to continue its investment plans to refurbish replace and reconnect the customers in the Ariaria market “Sometime in March 2016 the Honourable Minister of Power and the Office of the Vice President of Federal Republic intervened and brokered an out of court settlement between the parties which culminated in execution of a Term Sheet between the parties in April 2016 The fulfillment of the settlement terms however did not come to fruition due to the inability of Geometric to meet their commitment to Interstate Consequently in late 2017 EEDC went ahead to make some investment in the network when it became obvious that Geometric has reneged in its commitment to Interstate; having waited for 18 months for a commitment that was due in April 2016 “The Rural Electrification Agency (REA) an Agency of the Federal Government of Nigeria subsequently initiated a rural electrification programme whereby it proposed off grid power generation and distribution to Universities and some strategic markets including Ariaria Market in Abia This initiative was publicised in some electronic and print media stating that the REA had commenced technical studies of the identified project areas “With due consideration that the Federal Government of Nigeria still owns 40% shares in its business EEDC planned to negotiate with the Rural Electrification Agency (REA) with regard to the distribution of electricity in the Ariaria Market geographical area as REA does not possess a distribution license and neither are they empowered to build a distribution network “Contrary to the understanding that it was REA that was developing the off-grid power project at Ariaria Market as published by the Agency in some print and electronic media EEDC was surprised to notice that a company known as Ariaria Independent Energy Distribution Network Limited had sponsored a Public Notice in New Telegraph Newspaper dated January 24 2018 announcing that it had applied to NERC for an Independent Electricity Distribution Network License for Ariaria market “Concerned by this development EEDC conducted several searches at the Corporate Affairs Commission and discovered that Ariaria Independent Energy Distribution Network Limited is a private enterprise with convoluted shareholdings comprising of several companies and shareholders respectively and is indeed a Special Purpose Vehicle for a private off grid electricity power project by private interest groups and not by the Federal Government as earlier presented to members of the public “In fact what had been assumed was a government initiative by REA metamorphosed into a purely private sector business detailing the names of a chain of companies and shareholders as stated above “Furthermore EEDC is not aware of any transparent procurement process by REA that assigned the project which was ostensibly conceptualised and funded by the government to private developers It is noteworthy that as a socially responsible company EEDC upgraded and refurbished the Shoe Market which adjoins Ariaria Market; and Ariaria was to follow before REA announced their intention to develop the Market in the hope that they will hand the network over to EEDC after development “The shoe market currently enjoys good supply at very reasonable rates which will be extended to Ariaria Market As a customer focused company there is need to highlight the potentially high tariff the customers will pay under the IEDN regime compared to the relatively low tariff the Shoe Market customers currently pay” The company insisted that “by this singular act Ariaria Independent Energy Distribution Network Limited encroached and trespassed on EEDC’s distribution licensed coverage area by illegally constructing distribution lines without a license nor the authorization of EEDC “This act is in clear contravention of the regulatory provision that no company can set up a distribution network within a franchise area of a distribution company where there is already an existing and active distribution facility in the area Furthermore there are various conditions to be fulfilled for an intending applicant under the NERC Independent Electricity Distribution Network Regulations 2012 and the NERC Regulations for Mini-Grids 2016 These conditions however do not appear to have been fulfilled by the applicants “It becomes expedient to reiterate that it is an illegality and indeed an unlawful act for any organisation to attempt to embark on the construction of an independent electricity distribution network within EEDC’s licensed coverage area in contravention of extant regulatory provisions “Having set the record straight we are unable to comment further as the matter remains subject to litigation We hope to provide further clarification in due course and appreciate the patience and understanding of our esteemed customers as we strive to deliver on our unequivocal and unwavering mandate to deliver power to the South-East” it further stated Meanwhile one of the investors in AMESL Ubani Nkaginieme had told Business Day that AMESL was aware of moves in a court in Umuahia against the Ariaria Project He however described the Ariaria experiment as a blessing to the Enyimba City and a win-win to the traders the association the investor (AMESL) the Abia State government and the federal government He said all the necessary approvals were obtained but that their lawyers would do the needful as soon as AMESL was duly served At that time, Here, MD, collected in October 2012.
