  • Atiku Abubakar has raised an alarm about the alleged plans of President Buhari to rig the election.

    Atiku Abubakar
     
    Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar yesterday accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of planning to rig the forthcoming general elections.
     
    The former vice president, who spoke at the PDP Southeast rally in Owerri, the Imo State capital, urged the people to protect their votes by staying back at the polling units after casting their votes.
     
    He added that except such measures were taken, the APC would manipulate the election.
     
    He said: “APC is planning to rig the election. Please protect your votes. We have promised to restructure this country. APC is an evil party. They have turned this country as headquarter of poverty.”
     
    He noted that under the APC, Nigeria has been made poorer.
     
    “We are going to take over the country in the next election. Immediately after your vote, stay there and protect your vote. We want the economy to start growing again. We want you to vote PDP at all levels. Let nobody deceive you.”
     
    Atiku went on to describe the APC as an evil party that wants to sink Nigeria, if not stopped.
     
    PDP vice presidential candidate Peter Obi stated that the Southeast will vote for Atiku.
     
    “He is the one to develop Igboland. He has promised us restructuring. He will revamp the economy of Nigeria. Igbo people will vote Atiku Abubakar,” he said.
     
    Senate President Bukola Saraki said: “We have come here to see that the entire Southeast zone is part of the making of Atiku as the next president. Let me tell you, he has the capacity to make Nigeria united. I know that Nigerians are not happy the way it is now. Believe me, Atiku will solve the whole problems.”

    Adelowo Adedayo
     
    Adelowo Adedayo, 31, a murder suspect in Niger State, on Tuesday led police detectives to a shallow grave at the APC Quarters, Suleja in the Suleja Local Government Area of Niger State, where he allegedly buried one Abdullahi Liman, Punch Metro reports.
     
    The suspect was apprehended by detectives from the ‘B’ Division, Suleja, who were acting on information from the family of the deceased.
     
    Northern City News reports that the suspect murdered Liman before burying him in a shallow grave behind his house at the APC Quarters in Suleja.
     
    The suspect was said to have carted away his victim’s belongings, including a set of chairs, an LG plasma television, mattress, three pairs of shoes and two bags of clothes.
     
    The incident reportedly happened on January 16, 2019.
     
    The suspect confessed to our correspondent that he killed his victim in order to steal his property.
     
    Adedayo said, “I have been planning to steal from his house for the past six months; unfortunately, the day I went there, he was at home and the only option left for me was to kill him.


    “Liman’s house was well furnished and I wanted to have some of the property; but when I met him in his house, I killed him so that he would not expose me to people.”
     
    The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, confirmed the development.
     
    He said the suspect confessed to the crime during interrogation.
     
    Abubakar added that the operatives recovered the stolen items from the suspect, noting that the matter would soon be charged to court.[url=https://www.thelotter.com/play-powerball-overseas/?affid=167&utm_source=Taboola&utm_medium=Article&utm_campaign=Proper_1277_nigeria1][/url]

  • Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have successfully arrested and arraigned a suspected internet fraudster.
    [Image: yahoo-boy0.jpg]
    Balogun Sultan
     
    The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos Zonal office, on Tuesday, January 22, 2019, arraigned a suspected Internet fraudster, Balogun Sultan, before Justice Oloruntoyin Solebo of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos on a four-count charge bordering on possession of fraudulent documents.
     
    The defendant was said to present himself as Erika Stiller, a female, to unsuspecting victims on the Internet.
     
    One of the counts reads: "That you, Balogun Sultan (a.k.a Erika Stiller), on or about the 29th November, 2017 at Lagos, within the Ikeja Judicial Division, with intent to defraud, had in your possession documents containing false pretence titled "Picture from Erika" from Erika Stiller by sending pictures to mark65243@yahoo.com and printed from your e-mail box, erikastiller231@gmail.com, erikastiller231@gmail.com".
     
    Another count reads: "That you, Balogun Sultan (a.k.a Erika Stiller), on or about the 13th April, 2018 at Lagos within the Ikeja Judicial Division, with intent to defraud, had in your possession documents containing false pretence titled "Grant FMT" Re Money" from Erika Stiller by sending a letter printed from your e-mail box, erikastiller231@gmail.com".
     
    He, however, pleaded not guilty when the charges were read to him.
     
    In view of his plea, the prosecution counsel, C.R. Edozie, asked the court for a trial date and prayed the court to remand the defendant in prison custody pending the determination of the case before the court.
     
    Counsel to the defendant, Babatunde Adeyemi, prayed the court to admit his client to bail. In his response, the prosecution counsel told the court that though he had been served with the bail application, he would need time to go through it.
     
    Consequently, Justice Solebo adjourned the matter to February 5, 2019 for hearing of the bail application and also remanded the defendant in Kirikiri prison custody.

  • The NNPC spokesperson said the call for restraint by politicians became necessary in the wake of the names of some of its top management being dragged into partisan politics.

    The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said yesterday that the ongoing attempts by politicians to drag its name into partisan politics was a potent danger to the corporation’s business interests, contract deals, and MoUs which should ordinarily be insulated from politics.
     
    The corporation, therefore, called on politicians and those canvassing for votes for the impending general elections, to refrain from using NNPC or its top management as cannon fodders for their electioneering strategies.
     
    NNPC spokesman, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu, in a statement in Abuja, said using the corporation as a launchpad for political attacks against opponents was not only a disservice to the overall national interest but also inimical to the national economy, given NNPC’s pivotal role as the cash cow of the nation.
     
    The NNPC spokesperson said the call for restraint by politicians became necessary in the wake of the names of some of its top management being dragged into partisan politics.

    President Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday in Abuja told the European Union Observer Mission (EOM) to Nigeria’s elections starting in February, that he was impressed by the preparations made by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and was optimistic that the electoral body would deliver on its mandate of a credible poll.

    Receiving the EOM, led by the Chief Observer and member of the European Parliament, Maria Arena, at the State House, the President said he had listened earlier in the day, to the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, when he briefed the National Council of State.

    According to President Buhari, “I am happy and impressed with the briefing he gave. I hope that the confidence he exuded and the intellect he brought to bear on the Report will be justified at the end of the day.”

    The President told the EU delegation that Nigeria had grown its electoral system incrementally, getting better year after year.

    “Having participated in elections four times in the past, I would say that since 2015, technology has helped the credibility of our elections,” he said.

    President Buhari said that Nigeria with over 250 cultural groups across religions and ethnic groups, with each group canvassing for identity and primacy in the affairs of the nation, “patriotism demands that we identify the nation’s best interest and go with it.”

    He stressed that the governing All Progressives Congress, APC, administration had the good sense of identifying the national interest to include security, peace and stability, improved economy, jobs creation and the campaign against corruption, noting that the party was not wrong in 2015, and is not wrong going into the election this year with the same issues in its campaigns.

    The President thanked the delegation for taking interest in Nigeria’s elections, and in the affairs of the nation generally.

    The EOM team, accompanied by Ambassador Ketil Karlsen, Head, European Delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS, said that the EU had observed every election in Nigeria since 1999, and had come here again for the next one, following an invitation by INEC.

    The delegation promised impartiality and neutrality in the monitoring of the elections.

    It is my honour and privilege to welcome you to this inaugural meeting with Assistant Inspectors-General of Police and Commissioners of Police across all Police Commands and Formations in the country following my assumption of duty as Ag. Inspector General of Police on Wednesday, 16th January, 2018.

    2. During the handing and taking over ceremony held last week, you would recall that I emphasized in my speech that the Presidential and National Assembly elections scheduled for 16th February, 2019 and the Governorship, State Assembly, and Federal Capital Territory Area Council Elections slated for Saturday 2nd March 2019 are national engagements that will not only task us, but subject our professionalism and commitment to duty to national and international scrutiny. Similarly, I identified the two national engagements as being a priority to my leadership.

    3. In furtherance to this, I have laid out a number of engagements that are critical to the attainment of our election security mandate within the context of the Electoral Act. Within the past few days, I have received briefs from Heads of Departments and I have also attended the meeting of the Inter-Agency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES) which was hosted by the National Security Adviser and which had all strategic leaders in the election security architecture in attendance. In addition, a capacity building training on democratic policing and elections security management for police officers is currently on-going. The training is designed to hold across the 12 Police Zonal Headquarters starting from today 21st January 2018 to 8th February, 2018. Prior to this the Office of the National Security Adviser had organised similar election security capacity building training for the Police and other security agencies. All these initiatives are part of the broad plans directed at ensuring quality security service delivery by the Police and other security agencies during the general elections. Today’s meeting is another critical engagement in our resolve to develop an effective framework that will engender optimal police performance during the national exercise.

    4. This strategic planning meeting is designed to achieve three major objectives. First is to evaluate police performance in previous electoral engagements with a view to drawing lessons, ascertaining performance gaps and identifying critical operational challenges that can be addressed in the process of planning for the upcoming general elections. The second purpose of this conference is to undertake national security threat analysis and level of preparation for the elections at the State Command levels, discuss limitations and evaluate strategies towards managing the identified threats. The third and perhaps, most important is to enable professional interaction between the Police, INEC leadership, and strategic partners across the country with a view to perfecting interventions that will aid in the attainment of our election security mandate as the lead agency in the election security management process. The meeting will also give insight into some of my policy direction in the drive towards repositioning the Nigeria Police Force.

    5. The credibility of any election is determined not just by the legal framework regulating it and the conduct of the actors within the process but by the extent of professionalism and operational competence displayed by the Police. Conscious of this reality, I assure the nation and the international community that the Nigeria Police Force shall coordinate effectively with other complementary security agencies, and collaborate efficiently with the leadership of the Independent National Electoral Commission in guaranteeing a safe and secure space for the citizens to freely exercise their electoral franchise.

    6. This meeting shall task all commissioners of Police across all the 36 Police State Commands and the FCT to galvanise their personnel and mobilise logistics towards ensuring a peaceful and credible outcome of the general elections. They shall also be tasked to identify possible threats and apply all legal and professional means to neutralise them ahead of the elections. Let me reiterate that while the Police in all Commands will secure law abiding political actors, party faithful and citizens in the course of the elections, nobody should be in doubt as to the capacity and renewed determination of the Police to deal decisively with elements that attempt to test our will by engaging in political violence or other electoral offences including vote buying which could threaten our democratic values. Any citizen that intends to offer himself or herself to be used negativelyas cannon folders for political actors should either have a rethink or be ready to face the consequences.

    7. Indeed, in order to ensure that such offenders are conclusively brought to justice, the DIG FCIID has been directed to set up Special Election Investigation Teams (SEIT) that will be tasked with the exclusive functions of taking in custody and undertake detailed investigation of all arrested electoral offenders across the country. The Teams shall also liaise with the Independent National Electoral Commission towards the prompt processing of the casefiles of the offenders for prosecution.

    8. Ladies and gentlemen, as promised during the handing and taking over ceremony between the immediate past Inspector General of Police and myself, a number of well-thought-out reform initiatives directed at restoring the traditional policing standards of the Force shall be vigorously pursued in all aspects of policing functions, particularly in the operations; intelligence; investigation; training; science, technology and innovation (STI); and monitoring and evaluation within the Force.

    9. This is in cognisance of the fact that our responsibility as a Police Force is to operate within extant rules and best international policing practices. It also imposes on us the obligation of respecting, protecting and advancing the rights of all citizens of this country regardless of their socio-economic status. Furthermore, public acceptance of the Police under a democratic setting is not influenced exclusively by the number of crimes that are solved but by the manner such are attained. Since no Police Force ever succeeds by alienating its citizens, we are firmly resolved that, under my watch, policing will be citizens-centred, rules-driven, and accountability-guided.

    10. Towards this end, a comprehensive reform both in terms of ethics, Mode of Operation, nomenclature and orientation, function delineation, Command and Control, weaponry, and accountability mechanism will be undertaken in SARS. This is with a view to giving full, clear, measurable and accountable intervention to the Presidential Directives on reform and re-orientation of the Unit as recently handed down to the Force leadership. A reorganisation proposal to this effect is being currently studied preparatory to its being implemented.

    11. At the end a Protocol that will document the outcome of the reform shall be developed. The Protocol shall become the Standard Operating Procedure of the Unit which will be engaged for performance evaluation in aid of accountability process and disciplinary concerns. It shall also act as guide for the review of specific operations involving the Unit with a view to drawing lessons and identifying gaps which can be bridged in order to strengthen the operational engagements of the Unit across all commands. This initiative will be undertaken in close collaboration with the Presidency, Office of the National Security Adviser, Ministry of Interior, Police Service Commission and Human Rights Groups, Development Partners and other strategic stakeholders. The proposed re-organisation will produce a new Special Anti-Robbery Unit which will be professional enough to protect the citizens in their line of duty, but uniquely potent enough to respond to any major weapon-related organised crimes in the swiftest and most ethical manner.

    12. While this initiative is being perfected, the operations of SARS which is currently centralised at the Force Headquarters is hereby decentralised. Consequently, with immediate effect, the Commissioner of Police in each of the 36 Police Commands and the FCT are to assume full Command and Control authority on all SARS in their Commands, while the FHQ Unit is, henceforth, subsumed under the command of the DIG FCIID. The import of this is that the DIG FCIID and Command CPs shall from this date, not only assume administrative and operational control of SARS in their respective Commands, they shall also be directly held liable for any professional misconducts resulting from the operations of the Units in their Commands. Consequently, they are to immediately undertake a detailed evaluation of the Units in their Commands and submit a report to my Office within the next two weeks.

    13. Similarly, all quasi-investigation and operations outfits including the Special Investigation Panel (SIP) and Special Tactical Squad (STS) or any other such Teams under whatever name are hereby disbanded. The DIG FCIID is to takeover and review all cases that such Teams are currently handling as well as official assets on charge to them and submit a detailed report to my Office within two weeks. Similar comprehensive reorganisation will be undertaken in the investigative, intelligence and special operations arms of the Force comprising of the Police Mobile Force, Counterterrorism Unit and the Special Protection Unit.

    14. This re-positioning process will eventually cascade down to the Zonal and State Command levels. The essence is to restore order and apply a break to the current slide in policing standards, discourage the proliferation of multiplicity of outfits competing for operational space in the most unprofessional manner. We shall enhance the capacity of the Force towards situating our operations within the principles and practice of Intelligence-led policing and human rights standards, and align our operations to modern dynamics.

    15. To the officers attending this conference, I charge you to remain dedicated to your professional calling, exhibit the highest possible level of leadership and the strongest possible quality of character towards advancing our common mandate of ensuring internal security and guaranteeing a peaceful and credible electoral process. I thank you all and wish us a rewarding deliberation.

    Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Tuesday rejected the idea of an Interim Government being mooted by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on behalf of the Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidency.

    PDP, in a statement by its Director of the Media and Publicity, Kola Ologbondiyan, said it “cannot accept any form of unconstitutional governance and a contraption like an interim government because it is confident of a landslide victory on February 16, given the overwhelming support, which its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, enjoys among Nigerians across the board.”

    The party said “a suggestion of an Interim Government, under any pretext, context or contemplation can only come from desperate and unpatriotic minds in a failed administration or political party that has lost hope of being re-elected in a free, fair and credible election due to its manifest incompetence and humongous corruption.”

    According to PDP, “Every Nigerian knows the desperation of the APC and the Buhari Presidency ahead of the 2019 general election, leading to their resort to threats, intimidation and clamp down on dissenting voices, as well as, assault on institutions of democracy, in the face of incontrovertible indices pointing to their imminent crushing defeat at the polls.

    “The PDP has already alerted Nigerians that Alhaji Lai Mohammed had let out APC’s ignoble ‘plan B’ of ‘if we can’t have it, then destroy it,’ which is to cause violence, derail the electoral process and blame it on the opposition; not minding the damage such could cause the nation, including human and material losses.

    “We hope such cruel plot, as revealed by Alhaji Lai Mohammed, is not the underlining reason behind the APC administration’s alleged neglect and undermining of our security forces fighting in the fronts.

    “The PDP demands that Alhaji Mohammed comes clear on the source of his information, if it is not a plot being hatched by the APC.

    “He should tell Nigerians if his source was the Police, the military or the Directorate of State Services (DSS) so that they can appropriately channel their concerns.”

    PDP urged Nigerians to be at alert and keep an eye on the APC in their nefarious plans against our nation, now that they have made their strategy public.

    “On our own part, the PDP is prepared and ready for the elections. We have been going round the country peacefully, campaigning and presenting our candidate, policies and programmes to the electorate.

    “The PDP will therefore not accept any form of interim government, not when Nigerians have already attained a consensus to rally behind and vote in the peoples Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as their next President, come February 16, 2019,” the party said.

    Buhari has lost the support of the Generals. He has lost the support of the international community that helped him in 2015. He has been scoring own goals up and down by showing obvious signs of dementia, falling and slumping everywhere. And to prove that his village people are determined to punish him, he has made enemy of the judiciary with his failed attempt to oust the Chief Justice of Nigeria. So even if he (Buhari) succeeds in rigging, you don’t need a prophet to know the Supreme court won’t legalize his rigging.

    But in all of this, we still need just one thing to actualize our aim of retiring this man and his Cabal. The PVC. Charles Ogbu has his.

    Problem is, so many of us don’t have the PVC, yet, we claim we are tired of Buhari’s herdsmen-induced ethnic cleansing, python dance and other demonic economic policies that have pushed our people out of business.

    In Abia state alone, we have over 500,000 UNCOLLECTED PVCs. Enugu has over 500,000 too. Anambra has over 300,000. Imo and Ebonyi have theirs too. The Implication is that in just two Southeast states, We will lose over 1,000000 potential votes that would have ordinarily gone to Atiku-Obi. Remember that Buhari’s win margin in 2015 was just 2 million votes.

    This is a problem but I’m not here to agonize about it. I am here to organize to enable us find the solution together.

    I need dedicated people in each of the 5 Southeast states who can get to the Churches or has contacts of some Priests or Pastors in Igbo land who can help include the necessity as well as venues of collecting PVCs in their church announcement. If it is your village or community youths and women you can mobilize to the INEC electoral wards to go collect the PVC, anything you can do at all to help reduce the large number of unclaimed PVC in the southeast, please reach me either here or inbox. I will find a way to get people that will pay for your logistics. If you are a man/woman of means here genuinely interested in sending Buhari back to Daura, please come and join us in this PVC campaign by paying at least the transport fare of those on ground to do the mobilization. I’m not asking you to pay any money to me, I’m saying you should monitor this and make contribution to help the Volunteers on ground because without our PVC, everything we do here is noise. Please guys, this is of urgent importance. Election is just 3 weeks away. And let me quickly add,

    I am doing this solely out of my evidence-backed belief that our businesses, our lives, our dignity as humans and our right to free speech will most likely suffer a tragic fate if this unaware unfit un-incharge President Buhari returns . I have absolutely no direct business with the PDP, Atiku, Obi or any of the PDP social media platforms. None at all. I HAVE NEVER BEEN GIVEN EVEN DATA MONEY BY ANYONE CONNECTED TO THE PDP OR ATIKU. The only connection I ever had with the PDP was when some Chieftains of the party invited me to Wadata Plaza, offered me a job and gave me some small “change” following my 2016 internet-breaking article titled “IN DEFENCE OF JONATHAN” which made it to the Guardian newspaper and attracted a rejoinder from the Presidency with a piece Garba Shehu titled “IN DEFENCE OF BUHARI”. Of course, I politely turned down their job offer but pocketed my cash.

    It is my belief that this is no longer a PDP versus APC battle. This is a battle between the Nigerian people and some dark hearted conscienceless Cabal using a medically unfit President Buhari as a cover for genocide and assets stripping of the entire country.

    Let us ignore the PDP and do all we can on our own to save ourselves from the Existential Threat represented by this govt.

    Charles Ogbu

    Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) weekend in Abuja said any failed instant payment transaction not reversed into the customer’s account within 24 hours after complaint by the sender or beneficiary should be reported to CBN.

    CBN Director, Consumer Protection Department, Kofo Salam-Alada, said:

    “When you do instant payment, you want it to be instant and when it is not achieved then there should be sanctions to such providers.

    “However, we want to use this medium to inform the public that the first point of call is actually your service provider not CBN and it is only when your bank cannot resolve it and there’s no promise of resolution that you come to CBN.

    “After that, the CBN can step in and look at the issues and see whether the customer is entitled to what he’s claiming against the bank.

    “It is not all the time that customers come to the bank that they will get what they want.

    “We will examine the issues and see whether there was any failure on the part of the bank before the decision is made.”

    CBN had through a circular on the guidelines for instant electronic payments last year mandated banks to pay a fine of N10,000 to customers for each failed transaction not resolved within 24 hours.

    The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) charges President Muhammadu Buhari to go beyond the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal and former Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) and prosecute other leaders of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), who have been openly indicted of corruption.

    The party says that singling out Babachir Lawal and Ayodele Oke, for prosecution, while providing official cover to numerous other indicted APC leaders and persons close to him, President Buhari has further confirmed that he is indeed partisan and insincere in prosecuting the anti-corruption fight.

    Moreover, the fact that, according to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Mr. President had to give his nod before Babachir and Oke could be prosecuted, also goes to further confirm that President Buhari has annexed the system and directly determines who is prosecuted and who is spared.

    The PDP therefore challenges President Buhari to immediately order the prosecution of all APC leaders, particularly members of his Presidential Campaign Council, beginning with the APC factional National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, the campaign Director-General, Rotimi Amaechi, other directors and zonal coordinators, who have allegations of corruption hanging on their necks.

    Mr. President should also immediately order the prosecution of the former aide to the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, Mr. Baba Inna, who was arrested in September last year, over accusations of receiving N2.5 billion from politicians, businessmen and women on behalf of the First Lady.

    In the same vein, he should also order the prosecution of Mrs. Amina Mohammed, who while being paraded by the Department of State Services (DSS), last year stated in public that persons close to President Buhari were involved in serial fraud and looting of public resources under the official cover of the Buhari Presidency.

    President Buhari should also order an open inquest into alleged involvement of some individuals said to be close to the Buhari Presidency in the N1.032 trillion alleged corrupt acquisitions in 9Mobile and Keystone Bank PLC.

    He is also invited to order an investigation into allegations that persons close to him and serving in his Presidency took N500 million as bribe to reduce the fine imposed on a telecommunication company operating in the country, from N1.03 trillion to N330 billion.

    Furthermore, we challenge President Buhari to allow an inquest into the N14 trillion looted oil money under his watch, as detailed in the NNPC leaked memo; the handling of the repatriated $322m that has been siphoned under the guise of sharing to the poor; the N33 billion Internally Displace Persons (IDP) intervention fund and the billions of naira already frittered through the ‘Tradermoni scheme’.

    Until Mr. President musters the required political will to carry out these actions, his war against corruption remains a charade.

    Former President Olusegun Obasanjo says President Muhammadu Buhari is “sick in the body, mind and spirit and should be allowed to rest”.

    He stated this in an interview published by BBC News Yoruba on Monday evening.
    According to the former President, Buhari has performed to the best of his ability and should take a rest.
    He also urged Nigerians to take advantage of democracy and exercise their freedom of choice.
    “Buhari is sick in the spirit, body and mind,” he said.

    “Let’s beg him to take a rest. He has performed to the best of his ability. Some people have asked me about the person we’re supporting if we’re not worried that he won’t perform. That’s what’s good about democracy.”

    A sick leader is like a piece of carcass on which every opportunistic person, politician around him would inch to carve out a piece of meat…. In our climate and presently, there are many butchers of menace…

    “Who needs to get well soon?” asks, Olóye lókè Ìmèsí

    I’m not quite comfortable with giving the impression of being spiteful of President buhari’s health predicament but what do you do when those closest to him are the ones adverting attention to this dillema at every turn and juncture? It was the first lady, Aisha buhari, who first sounded the gong that her husband is incapacitated-to the extent of his presidency being seized by two unnamed malevolent usurpers?

    Now, my friend, Garba Shehu has done it again by pointing to a non existent speck in Obasanjo’s eyes impervious of the log in the eyes of his principal. Isn’t it funny and ridiculous that against the immediate backdrop of a week-long display of physical and mental infirmity by President Buhari, the presidency can taunt the well-being of almost his exact opposite in mental and physical fitness?

    How many months did Obasanjo spend in coma in a London hospital? Whose wife came out to reveal (what buhari has now openly confirmed) that unnamed hostage takers have capitalized on her husband’s spirit of infirmity to seize control of government? Who, in a fit of degenerative dementia, was identifying ogboru as the Presidential candidate of the APC?

    Shouldn’t Nigerians discern what God is revealing to us concerning the fitness of President Buhari for office? I’m not a physician but I am medically conscious enough to know that dementia is progressive and irreversible. The implication of this medical fact is that buhari can only get worse. What then becomes the governance of Nigeria if buhari is re-elected

    Let me leave you with the trenchant remorse of a respected voice, who like many other well meaning Nigerians aided in inflicting buhari on Nigeria four years ago, Sonala Olumhense

    …”Buhari is clearly a sick man: he appeared unable to hear; or hearing, to comprehend; or comprehending, to offer decent, relevant answers. The man did not know when he took office, or often what he was doing or saying. Anyone who advocates Buhari as being capable of leading even a local government insults that council”

    “In my estimation, we have reached the end of this road, irrespective of what the options are. Only a suicidal zealot places prescription glasses on a blind pilot and gives him control of an aircraft of 300 people, including his own family.”

    Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has revealed that he has received several death threats over his stance against the current government.

    In a statement titled, “Points for Concern and Action”, issued on Sunday, the former leader said;

    “God of Nigeria is a living God and a prayer-answering God. Nigerians must cry out to God to deliver Nigeria. Here again, I have been threatened with arrest and extermination but I will not succumb to intimidation or threats. Maybe I should remind those who are using probe as a threat that I have been probed four times by EFCC, ICPC, House of Representatives and the Senate and Buhari has access to reports of these probes. But I have also challenged Buhari and the criminals around him to set up a probe on the same allegations and I will face such probe in public.

    But I know that these criminals cannot withstand a Police inquiry let alone clinical probe on the past public offices they held. My fervent prayer is that President Buhari may live to see the will and purpose of God for Nigeria. My final appeal to him is to desist from evil with manipulation and desperation because evil has repercussion especially as man who should watch and be mindful of his self-acclaimed and packaged integrity. At the end of the day, those who goad you on will leave you in the lurch. You will be left alone, Unclad and unheralded. In defeat, which must be Buhari’s fear leading to desperation, he and his co-travellers can still maintain modicum of decency, and exhibit fear of God in their actions.”

    I just read where pastor tunde bakare said madam Oby is the best candidate. I know when someone is indirectly trying to keep buhari in power.

    Those guilty of that include all those who went on the streets to protest against the government and its policies in the build up to 2015 but are now contesting as presidential candidates and refused to go on the streets despite worse conditions than pre 2015 election.

    The second set of guilty people are all the clergy that were vocal and critical against last government but are busy giving prophesies now.

    Nigerians, there is something called “spoiler effects”; its where some candidates are floated to steal votes away from a major candidate.

    This was used in the presidential election of 1925 in Germany and the Nazi party won. That election later led to the emergence of Adolf Hitler who eventually plunged the whole world into a historical crisis.

    Any vote or anybody canvassing votes for any other candidate aside Atiku is canvassing votes for buhari. A vote for all those fringe candidates is a vote for buhari.

    Check, buharists and buharideens encourage you to vote for the lesser candidates, they won’t if they didn’t know it would benefit the criminal.

    Pastor bakare, shame on you and may you meet Abacha in hell unless you come out categorically and tell the truth. Amen!

    This time four years ago, my kids (knowing I was supporting the PDP candidate ) would jump around the house shouting APC -CHANGE! Their objective was to taunt me and they would do that as often as they had the chance including rehearsing any song or video that was being used to demarket GEJ especially the “NA ONLY YOU WAKA COME ” episode.

    Moving forward, barely Six months after Buhari became president it was my little girl that started their grumbling and his brother joined. They started from the biscuits they took to school as snack, the ones that used to have 4 pieces became 3 pieces, the ones that used to have 3 pieces became 2 pieces. Then the prices of other snacks went up, their pocket money began to make less sense , then the prolonged fuel scarcity hit, then the fuel price increase meaning they couldn’t watch TV anyhow with the generator and other austerity measures in the house, then came the surge in the number of fake products as companies sought to stay afloat by all means , biros that wont write, pencils that broke easily to mention a few.

    They became the real wailing wailers, “what kind of change is this ? ” they would exclaim and of course I’d reply with silence or simply tell them to endure the change. These days I’m not even sure my kids remember Buhari is the President or that there would be elections next month. It’s been four years of a GREAT CHANGE INDEED

    CCT Chairman, Danladi Umar
    [size=undefined]
     
    The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) has rejected High Court orders and request by the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen restraining it from hearing charges against him.
     
    The members of CCT in a split decision of two to one, refused to adjourn the matter indefinitely.
     
    The tribunal Chairman, Danladi Umar and the third member of the three-member panel, Julie Anabor refused the CJN’s application for indefinite adjournment and said the orders by High Courts were not binding on the CCT.
     
    The second member, William Agwadza Atedze in a dissenting opinion, agreed with the CJN that with the orders by the High Courts and the appeal before the Court of Appeal, it was necessary for the CCT to adjourn indefinitely pending when the issue of jurisdiction was resolved.

    [size=undefined]
     
    Rep. Dickson Terkighir, representing Makurdi/Guma Federal Constituency of Benue, has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
     
    Terkighir made the announcement in a letter addressed to the house and was read by the Deputy Speaker, Rep. Yussuf Lassun (APC-Odiniya) at the plenary on Tuesday.
     
    The announcement delighted members of the APC on the floor of the house as they screamed party slogans and waved eight fingers in the air.
     
    In the letter, Terkighir said that politics was local and that he had consulted with the constituents before the decision was reached.
     
    It could be recalled that Tarkighir contested for the house of reps ticket in the just concluded Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primaries.
     
    He, however, lost out with 80 votes to Mr Bem Mzondu who scored 102 votes.

  • Nigeria's ex-president, Olusegun Obasanjo has continued his attack on the APC saying that if their records are examined they will be sent to hell.

    Obasanjo
    [size=undefined]
     
    Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said that leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress will be thrown into hell fire if their records are examined, according to Punch.
     
    Obasanjo made the remark in an interview with BBC Yoruba.
     
    The former president criticised President Muhammadu Buhari for alleged ethnic considerations in appointments.
     
    He said if the President did not trust people from other ethnic groups enough to give them appointments, he should also not ask for their votes in the coming elections.
     
    Obasanjo said, “If we are talking about sin, the people that are there now, if we examine them, they will all enter hell fire.

    “They will not just be jailed, they will enter hell fire. Whoever God covers his sin, the person’s secrets are also protected.

    “I did not say if Atiku (Abubakar) gets there he will behave like Jesus or Mohammed, but he will do better than what we are seeing now.

    “The person who is our leader now is saying he cannot allow another ethnic group to work with him because he cannot trust them. If he cannot trust my tribe or your tribe, of what benefit is he? And he is saying my tribe and yours should come and vote for him.

    “He can ask for our votes, but he cannot trust us to work in good positions. Life is give and take. If you cannot trust me, why should I trust you?

    “If you put me in a position and I misbehave, why not remove me and put others?
     
    “But those you are putting in positions are your tribesmen and kinsmen because they are the people you can trust.”

    [size=undefined]
    No fewer than two people reportedly lost their lives in clashes that involved members of two cult groups in Ondo town, Ondo State on Monday night and Tuesday morning.
     
    The deceased were said to be members of the Ayee Confraternity and Eiye Confraternity. Both groups were also said to be engaging each other in bloody fights in recent times in the town.
     
    One of the deceased, who was identified as Olaleye Isiaka was reportedly killed on Monday night while the second victim, whose identity had not been revealed as at the time of filing this report, was shot dead early morning on Tuesday in two separate clashes.
     
    An eyewitness said, “Isiaka is a member of Eye confraternity, in company with some of his friends at a joint located at Akure motor park in the town, when members of the rival group attacked him.

    “When the attackers reached the scene, they started shooting indiscriminately, the people around the area had to run helter-skelter for safety. Isiaka too attempted to escape from the scene but he was shot several times. When the shots did not penetrate his body, the attackers later clubbed him to death.”
     
    The Public Relations Officer of the State Police Command, Mr. Femi Joseph, confirmed the incident and said the command had commenced an investigation into the matter.
     
    He said, “We only have the identity of one of the deceased, Isiaka, he is a notorious cultist in the town. He was killed by a rival cult group. The second person was killed this (Tuesday) morning in reprisal by Isiaka’s group to the rival group but we are yet to know his identity.

    “The investigation has commenced and efforts are ongoing to arrest the perpetrators of the dastardly act.”
