  • In what will come across as a rather shocking development, some 'human bones' have been found buried in front of a Lagos hotel.[Image: Nigeria-Police.jpg]
    File photo: Police officers
     
    Detectives at Ilasamaja Police Station in Lagos State are presently working round the clock to unravel the circumstances that led to the alleged burying of human beings at the entrance of a popular hotel in Papa Ajao area of Mushin. The facility called R & A hotel is located at 10, Lawal Babalola Street, Mushin, with branches in Allen Avenue area of Ikeja. Preliminary investigation led to the exhumation of what appeared to be human bones on November 22, 2018, at 8:30 am. The excavation became necessary following confessional statements by a suspect, identified as Gbenga, the hotel manager.
     
    The suspect was initially arrested by the police following a complaint from his employer, Alhaji Rasheed Sholola, who accused him of some sharp practices in the course of their business dealings.
     
    “Alhaji took Gbenga to the station on the suspicion that he might have embezzled parts of his money. He wanted the police to prosecute him on the allegation,”revealed a source.
     
    Saturday Sun gathered that the police authorities at the station detained the suspect for a day and were on the verge of taking him to court when Gbenga volunteered additional statements. This time around, he dropped a bombshell when he told detectives his employer buried some earth-shaking materials at the entrance of all his business concerns. Realizing the gravity of his situation, Gbenga decided not to sink alone, “since all his entreaties to make Alhaji change his mind fell on the deaf ear”, the source said. Gbenga reportedly declared his readiness to lead detectives to the locations.
     
    Shocking discoveries
     
    Alhaji Sholola was shortly after invited to the station to listen to the weighty allegations leveled against him by his manager. Consequently, detectives, armed with a signed warrant, stormed the hotel with camera, diggers, exhibit bags and shovels and commenced digging at an identified spot on the premises.
     
    The digging was conducted in the presence of the suspects, and according to sources, a handful of bones were exhumed along with other fetish objects as the digging progressed. From there, detectives went to another location where similar exhibits were exhumed. It was in the light of this that the hotelier was subsequently subjected to methodical questioning leading to him making additional statements concerning the new findings.
     
    Saturday Sun was informed that: “All the exhibits were thereafter painstakingly bagged preparatory to be taken to the Police Forensic Laboratory for analysis with the view to determining whether the bones are of human beings or otherwise.”
     
    An insider at the police station avowed that detectives “also want to know the name or identity of the owners of the bones that were buried and the circumstances under which they were killed.”
     
    Defiant suspect
     
    When Saturday Sun put a call across to Alhaji Sholola with a view to hear his side of the story, he responded viscerally, claiming he was on his way to the police station and therefore did not have time to answer questions from any journalist.
     
    His words: “I have read your text message. Why are you calling me? For what? What do you mean? You see, I am driving now.”
     
    A senior police officer at the Ilasa Division who confirmed the development, however said the materials exhumed from the hotel premises were not human bones but concoctions which have been sent for forensic analysis.

  • Igbos have been warned by Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige of the consequences of voting against Buhari in 2019.[Image: Ngige-1-220x170.jpg]
    Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige
     
    Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige has stated the consequences that would follow should the South-East vote against President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
     
    Ngige said the Igbos could miss the opportunity to produce the president of the country in 2023 if they fail to support the president.
     
    Ngige, speaking with reporters in Obosi in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State on Sunday, said Igbos have the chance to take over from Buhari in 2023 only if they play their cards right in the 2019 general elections.
     
    Ngige stressed that President Buhari’s reelection was the South-East’s shortest route to the presidency.
     
    He said, “This man (Buhari) has only one term (four years) to do and go home, and an Igboman will replace him. But if you leave this shortest route and take a gamble, you are on your own.

    “If Igbo refuse to play their cards right in next year’s general elections, the South-West will take away the chance from them.

    “They will produce the next president after Buhari, because the zone has shown demonstrable commitment to Buhari’s cause.

    “My good friend Babatunde Fashola has blown the whistle. What he said should be a warning signal to the Igbo, because you can’t stop the South-West from producing the next president of the country after supporting Buhari and the APC government.

    “That is why I’m telling our people now to come out en masse in next year’s election and vote for Buhari, so that nothing will stop you from succeeding him in 2023.”
     
    He further described the vice-presidential slot given to the Igbo by the Peoples Democratic Party as a “mere spare tyre that might be used for over six years”.
     
    The South-East zone has failed in their bid to have one of their own as the leader of the country since the return of democratic rule in 1999.

  • Buhari, while in Poland recently dismissed Kanu’s claim, describing it as fake but the rumours have refused to go away.[Image: krii.JPG]
    Reno Omokri
     
    Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has highlighted reasons President Muhammadu Buhari may be dead and replaced with one Jubril of Sudan.
     
    The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu had continued to insinuate that Buhari was fake.
     
    Buhari, while in Poland recently dismissed Kanu’s claim, describing it as fake. Kanu, however, released ‘six scientific evidence’ yesterday to prove that the current Nigerian President was not the real Buhari.
     
    Reacting to the saga, Omokri said the recent lamentation by the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari that two persons were frustrating the current government could be an indication that the current Nigeria’s President was fake.
     
    In a tweet, the former presidential aide wondered if Buhari could still praise the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje after being indicted for corruption.
     
    He wrote:
     
    “I doubted this Jubril from Sudan story, but after @aishambuhari said two men control her husband, I started to think.

    “Would the old @MBuhari go to Paris to praise crooked Kano @GovUmarGanduje and return to Nigeria to freeze honest Peter Obi’s account? This doesn’t seem like Buhari!”

  • IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu has revealed the identity of the two people who brought Jubril to Nigeria while commending Aisha Buhari.[Image: kanu-isreal.jpg]
    IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu
     
    The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has praised wife of President Buhari, Aisha for her statement that revealed two powerful people controlling the affairs of Buhari's government.
     
    Recall that Aisha on Tuesday said two powerful people were frustrating her husband’s effort in running the affairs of the country.
     
    She, however, failed to mention the names of the powerful persons.
     
    But Kanu in a live broadcast on Saturday commended Aisha for speaking against the ills in her husband’s administration while condemning the likes of Oby Ezekwesili and other activists.
     
    Appreciating Aisha, Kanu hoped that the president’s wife could be the next president of Nigeria.
     
    According to Daily Post, the Biafran leader disclosed that Abba Kyari and Mamman Daura are the two men frustrating Buhari government and responsible for bringing Jubril of Sudan to Aso Rock.
     

     
    He said: “Why have Oby Ezekwesili and so-called activists not asked the government about those two people running the cabinets?

    “Common sense is not common in the zoo called Nigeria, why are people not outraged that two men are holding people hostage?

    “I have renewed respect for Aisha Buhari over her latest statement at a conference organized by Project 4+4 in Abuja on Tuesday and also women like Patience Jonathan, Dora Akunyili and Okonjo Iweala.

    “These women sometimes make me think Nigeria would have been a better place if a woman was the president.

    “It will be better for Nigerians to vote Aisha Buhari to be the President, she is very bold, truthful, frank and upright same as Patience Jonathan.

    “Considering what Aisha Buhari said, ask yourself, will she speak that way if her husband was still alive and not dead.

    “Aisha Buhari is basically asking Nigerians to rise up in a revolution because those people are now in charge. The question to ask her is ‘where is your husband?

    “Her statement is unbelivable, where are the men meant to stand up against these two people.

    “Also at the event was the wife of ‘cowardly’ vice president, Yemi Osinbajo who should be swept away. Osinbajo is a spineless coward, not a human being.

    “If Aisha had an opportunity, she would be harsher than I am, you see why I say Nigerian men are cowards, see what a woman is saying.

    “Look at Aisha Buhari telling elites to get up and do something about the government. Since men cannot do anything Aisha urged women to fight.

    “Aisha Buhari named two men in control of Nigeria, those men are Abba kyari and Mamman Daura. Those two people are ruling 180m Nigerians and responsible for bringing Jubril from Sudan to Nigeria.

    “These two men went to Sudan to replace Buhari because they wanted to retain power.

    “Aisha is telling you in coded language that her husband is no longer in Aso Rock, Nigerians should wake up. Recall her speech in 2016 where she said her man , it was at that stage that the idea of getting a replacement for Buhari arose.

    “I grade this woman highly for not shying away from issues in the country, I like Aisha because she is amazing and courageous. You must all respect her than your Daddy G.O and clerics who just care about money, seeds and offerings.

    “From Abba Kyari to Sultan of Sokoto, God will punish you all for your evil acts.”

  • John Odigie-Oyegun is still a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress and he is not leaving anytime soon.[Image: oyegun2.JPG]
    John Odigie-Oyegun
     
    A former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, John Odigie-Oyegun, has responded to reports making the rounds that he had dumped the party.
     
    Oyegun noted that though there were problems and challenges in the party, he cannot run away.
     
    He said he will stay and give what he has to patch the cracks.
     
    Reports emerged recently that the former Governor had left the ruling party.
     
    But speaking with Sun, the elder statesman said that having been an originator to the party’s process, it was going to be extremely difficult to see himself in another political party.
     
    Asked about the claim that he was no longer in APC, Oyegun said, “I had intended to totally ignore that flown kite. I have almost succeeded in doing that but this will be an opportunity to emphasise that in terms of the thinking, I was basically an originator because I knew that what we were doing while in opposition was wrong.


     
    “We in opposition truly want to present our nation with democratic choice. We need to build a party that can be comparable in levels, strength and acceptability to the Nigerian public not for them to keep saying that they don’t like them yet they don’t have choice. Having been an originator to that process, it will be extremely difficult to see myself elsewhere.

    “Yes, the party has issues and problems, but you don’t run away from the party because it is passing through a phase or difficulty. I cannot run away. I will rather give what I have to patch the cracks.

    “We will maintain the direction and goals we have set for ourselves otherwise the fluidity of the movement does not make sense and does not show commitment.

    “Yes, there are difficulties, but they are meant to be addressed, sorted out so that the party does not lose its soul and the message that brought it into being.

    “Those are the critical issues. The real problem comes if a party stands in danger of losing its bearing in those respects. I am APC and I don’t see myself somewhere else. I cannot just quite envisage it.”

  • The Catholic Bishops have rejected an apology tendered by Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka to former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi.[Image: Mbaka.JPG]
    Rev. Father Mbaka
     
    The Catholic Bishop of Enugu, Most Rev. Callistus Onaga has rejected the recent apology tendered by Fr. Ejike Mbaka to former Governor Peter Obi for the embarrassing episode the priest created during a church bazaar sales.
     
    According to Daily Post, Onaga, under whose jurisdiction and supervision Fr. Mbaka’s Adoration Ministry Enugu operates, said the apology by Mbaka was no apology but apologetics that did not comply with what the Bishops directed him to do.
     
    The bishop said this during the weekend at a diaconate ordination mass celebrated at the Holy Ghost Cathedral, Enugu.
     
    He said: “Before we met Mbaka, he had already apologised to Obi but when we listened to the apology, we realized it was no apology but apologetics, so we mandated him to do a written apology to Obi which he agreed to do and actually did it in our presence.

    “He was remorseful and regretted his action. We believe he would do the needful by sending across the written apology.”
     
    Bishop Onaga also bemoaned the deep involvement of clerics in partisan politics and mandated henceforth, in line with the directive of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, that priests of the Catholic Church must not make political prophecies or endorse any politician or political party. He urged priests under his control to maintain strict neutrality in matters of politics and focus of their mandate as priests.
     

     
    He, however, noted that Fr. Mbaka is gifted but should not allow himself be led into disobeying the directives and authority of the church.

    “I urge you all to pray for Fr. Ejike Mbaka. This man has added value to the church through his work. I have on several occasions told him that he is gifted but we must not allow anybody railroad us into disobeying the directives of the church. I therefore urge you all to pray for him so that the church can maximize his gift to the glory of God,” he said.
     
    The bishop also warned that priests were becoming meddlesome even in matters that does not concern them.
     
    He said: “I have heard such cases in some community where the contention was that the priest said that a certain person or the other should be the traditional ruler of a community and the community was in crisis. This is beyond your mandate as priest. Priests are not king makers, just preach and pray for them and let the counties run their affairs. In the same way, we should also allow politicians to play their politics and steer clear from the endorsements of candidates. Nigeria operates a democracy and not theocracy. We must therefore be mindful to preserve the integrity of the Catholic church.”

  • [Image: C00DD931-2735-4962-B3C2-B014189CA19C.jpeg]

    Ita Enang, the Presidential Adviser on National Assembly and a member of the All Progressives Congress from Akwa Ibom State, was quoted by The Punch Newspaper as saying: “President Muhammadu Buhari has taken decision on the Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill 2018 in accordance with his power under the 1999 Constitution and has communicated that decision to the Senate and the House of Representatives in accordance with the law.”

    He added that Buhari acted within the law, which compels him to communicate his decision to the National Assembly.

    Enang noted: “The President has taken a decision in accordance with the powers vested in him by the constitution. And by convention that decision contained in the communication can only be revealed by the person to whom that decision is addressed.

    “But the electoral bill has left Mr President because he has taken a decision and has remitted it back.”

    My Refusal Is In National Interest-President

    According to Saturday PUNCH findings, Buhari made the withdrawal known in a letter to the Senate and the House of Representatives, which was addressed to the President, Bukola Saraki and the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, respectively.

    The letter, a copy of which our correspondent obtained by Saturday PUNCH, was dated December 6, 2018.

    It read, “Pursuant to Section 58(4) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), I hereby convey to the Senate/House of Representatives, my decision on 6th December, 2018, to decline presidential assent to the Electoral (Amendment) Bill, 2018, recently passed by the National Assembly.

    “I am declining assent to the bill principally because I am concerned that passing a new electoral bill this far into the electoral process for the 2019 general elections, which commenced under the 2015 Electoral Act, could create some uncertainty about the applicable legislation to govern the process. Any real or apparent change to the rules this close to the election may provide an opportunity for disruption and confusion in respect of which law governs the electoral process.

    “This leads me to believe that it is in the best interest of the country and our democracy for the National Assembly to specifically state in the bill, that the Electoral Act will come into effect and be applicable to elections commencing after the 2019 general elections.”

    Buhari also raise some drafting issues, calling for insertion and deletion of some words.

    We will veto bill, Senate vows

    However, uncertainty may be looming over the conduct of the forthcoming 2019 general elections as the Senate has vowed to veto the Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill 2018, following President’s decision to assent to the vital bill.

    The Senate on Friday vowed to veto the bill saying the new electoral draft was very significant to the conduct and outcome of the 2019 elections.

    The Vice-Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce, told Saturday PUNCH that the upper chamber of the National Assembly would lobby members of the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress, in the chamber to veto the bill.

    Murray-Bruce, who had initially withheld the Senate’s reaction on the subject matter in order to get brief from the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, later spoke to Saturday PUNCH after getting in touch with Saraki.

    Murray-Bruce, who said the amendments to the bill would guarantee free and fair general elections in 2019, said the Senate would do everything possible to veto the bill.

    The Senate’s spokesman said, “First of all, we think it is a mistake not to sign the bill. We think Buhari should have signed it. We want the APC senators and all Nigerians to understand that, that bill was the right thing to do at this period of our national life.

    “We will do everything possible to work with the progressive APC senators to get the right number of votes to override it. We will override it.”

    He added, “We want credible elections and that was why we hoped the President would sign the (amended) Electoral Act. Now that he has refused to sign it, we will talk to the APC members in the Senate to look at Nigeria and not their party. They should look at Nigeria and not their party.

    “There are aspects that INEC can implement on their own without the law.”

    When asked later if he was reacting in his personal capacity as a senator or as the Senate’s spokesman, Murray-Bruce said, “It was the Senate reacting, I told you.”

    Reacting, the House of Representatives said it would take action on the assent withdrawal after Dogara had read the letter to lawmakers in plenary.

    The Chairman of the House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Mr Abdulrazak Namdas, who spoke to one of our correspondents on the telephone, said, “The House can only take a decision after the letter had been read on the floor of the chamber.”

    PDP, CUPP, SANS urge NASS to override Buhari

    But the PDP Presidential Campaign Council on Friday urged the National Assembly to immediately override the President’s refusal to assent the bill.

    The Director, Media and Publicity of the council, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement said overriding Buhari would save the nation’s democracy

    He added that the legislative action had become imperative as Buhari’s decision was a calculated attempt to inject crisis into the electoral process.

    According to him, Buhari’s refusal to sign the Act could ultimately scuttle the conduct of the 2019 general elections.

    Ologbondiyan said, “President Buhari’s repeated refusal to sign amendments passed to check rigging in the election, raises issues of his sincerity of purpose and has the capacity to trigger political unrest and violence, which can, in turn, truncate our hard-earned democracy.”

    According to him, Buhari is afraid of the amendments because they essentially checked the APC’s alleged rigging plans.

    He also charged all political parties, other critical stakeholders and Nigerians in general, to rise in the interest of the nation and demand the entrenching of rules and processes that would guarantee the conduct of free, fair and credible elections.

    Rejection invitation to anarchy –CUPP

    Meanwhile, the CUPP said Buhari’s decision not to sign the bill was an invitation to electoral anarchy.

    The coalition in a statement by its first national spokesperson, Imo Ugochinyere, said Buhari’s latest action portrayed him as a jittery President who was afraid of electoral defeat.

    The statement read, “President Buhari has expectedly failed again to take advantage of the rare opportunity of the Electoral Amendment Bill to write his name in gold as the President that signed the laws that guaranteed electoral credibility in Nigeria.

    “But yet again, as usual of him, he failed to rise to the occasion, being blinded by ambition and the love of the perks of office.”

    Meanwhile, renowned Senior Advocates of Nigeria have advised the National Assembly to invoke its constitutional powers to override the President’s assent in respect of the electoral act.

    The SANs include Olisa Agbakoba, Mike Ozekhome, Femi Falana and Ifedapo Adedipe.

    Agbakoba, who is a former President of the Nigerian Bar Association and a member of the CUPP, said without the signing of the bill, some of the challenges experienced in the 2015 elections would repeat themselves.

    He expressed the expectation that the Senate would override Buhari’s decision to pave the way for a smoother electoral experience in 2019.

    Agbakoba said, “The 2018 Electoral Bill is clearly better than the 2010 (Electoral Act) as it removed all the constraints and challenges that marred the 2015 elections.

    “So, retaining the weaknesses of the 2010 (Electoral Act) on whether the card reader and transmission of results electronically are allowed is going to make the 2019 elections a lot more difficult and challenging. So, I expect the Senate to override the presidential veto.”

    Ozekhome also said the National Assembly had the power to override the President’s decision.

    He said, “The National Assembly can go ahead with two-thirds majority to overturn the President’s decision. If after 30 days he (President) declines his assent, the National Assembly can meet and by two-thirds majority counteract his decline of assent and the bill becomes a law automatically.”

    Adedipe, in his remarks, said, “Any democrat who believes in a free, fair, credible and transparent election will be concerned. This is because the earlier Electoral Act was found to have some inadequacies and that was what gave rise for the need for an amendment.

    “But now that the President, in his wisdom, clearly aided by his supporters, has refused to assent to the amendment, my worry is that before this government came on board, the various individual respected Nigerians were rather very vociferous in their request for a transparent election. And so, if the National Assembly dominated by members of your own party is trying to amend the law, it is curious that the President will refuse to assent, then you’ll begin to suspect that perhaps there’s more than meets the eye in the refusal. It is probably because the ruling party is afraid of transparent elections.

    Falana recalled that he had warned relevant stakeholders to expedite the process of passing the new bill as passing a law within a period shorter than six months to the election had been prohibited under Article 2 of Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance of ECOWAS.

    Falana said, “Once the President withholds his assent, the choice the National Assembly has is to override his assent.

    Buhari finally declines assent after speculations

    Buhari’s decision confirmed speculation that became rife after the bill spent nearly one month on his desk, that he would reject it.

    By the provision of the constitution, the President is to either sign or write the National Assembly within 30 days of a piece of legislation being transmitted to him, conveying his decision/reasons to withhold his assent.

    Buhari had thrice rejected the bill, the third time being August 30, when he returned it to the National Assembly.

    The lawmakers quickly incorporated the areas the President raised objections to and sent the bill back to him for his assent on November 7.

    The new bill has provisions to improve on the country’s electoral process ahead of the 2019 general elections, including the use of the card reader as the sole means of accreditation of voters.

    In rejecting the bill on August 30, Buhari raised objections to 11 sections, all of which the National Assembly addressed in the latest version pending on his table.

    The Chairman, House Committee on Electoral and Political Party Matters, Mrs. Aisha Dukku, had while briefing members on the bill shortly before it was passed on October 24, stressed that all the areas Buhari queried had been amended appropriately by the Senate/House joint committees.

    Dukku, a member of the APC from Gombe State, had stated, “All the issues raised by Mr President have been captured and addressed.

    “Both the Senate and the House worked on these amendments and all the issues have been addressed.”

    The controversial sections that were corrected included 9,18, 27, 30, 34, 36, 44, 87,112,151.

    For example, in Clause 87(14), one of the areas raised by Buhari on deadline for primary election, Dukku said the legislature addressed it by inserting “the date of the primaries shall not be earlier than 150 days and not later than 120 days before the date of election to the elective offices.”

    The original provision that Buhari rejected captured 120 days and 90 days.

    China has warned Canada there would be severe consequences if it did not immediately release Huawei’s chief financial officer, calling the case “extremely nasty”.

    Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada on 1 December and faces extradition to the United States, which alleges that she covered up her company’s links to a firm that tried to sell equipment to Iran despite sanctions.

    The executive is the daughter of Huawei’s founder.

    If extradited to the US, Meng would face charges of conspiracy to defraud multiple financial institutions, a Canadian court heard on Friday, with a maximum sentence of 30 years for each charge.

    No decision was reached at the extradition hearing after nearly six hours of arguments and counter-arguments, and the hearing was adjourned until Monday.

    In a statement on Saturday, China’s foreign ministry said the vice-foreign minister, Le Yucheng, had issued the warning to release Meng to Canada’s ambassador in Beijing, summoning him to lodge a “strong protest”.

    The giant that no one trusts: why Huawei’s history haunts it

    China’s official news agency Xinhua reported Le summoned the Canadian ambassador, John McCallum, in protest and urged Ottawa to release Meng immediately or face “grave consequences that the Canadian side should be held accountable for”.

    Adam Austen, a spokesman for the Canadian foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, said on Saturday there was “nothing to add beyond what the minister said yesterday”.

    Freeland told reporters on Friday the relationship with China was important and valued, and Canada’s ambassador in Beijing has assured the Chinese that Meng would receive consular access.

    When asked about the possible Chinese backlash, the prime minister, Justin Trudeau, told reporters on Friday Canada had a very good relationship with Beijing.

    Canada’s arrest of Meng at the request of the United States while she was changing plane in Vancouver was a serious breach of her lawful rights, Le said. The move “ignored the law, was unreasonable” and was in its very nature “extremely nasty”, he added.

    “There will probably be a deep freeze with the Chinese in high-level visits and exchanges,” David Mulroney, a former Canadian ambassador to China, said on Friday.

    Huawei: Chinese media accuses US of ‘hooliganism’ over Meng Wanzhou arrest

    “The ability to talk about free trade will be put in the ice box for a while. But we’re going to have to live with that. That’s the price of dealing with a country like China.”

    Meng’s arrest took place on the same day the US president, Donald Trump, met in Argentina with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, to resolve an escalating trade war between the world’s two largest economies.

    The news of Meng’s arrest has roiled stock markets and drawn condemnation from Chinese authorities, although Trump and his top economic advisers have played down its importance to trade talks after the two leaders agreed to a truce.

    A Huawei spokesman said on Friday the company has “every confidence that the Canadian and US legal systems will reach the right conclusion”. The company has said it complies with all applicable export control and sanctions laws and other regulations.

  • Controversial Nigerian cleric, Father Mbaka has reportedly escaped an assassination attempt on his life.[Image: rev-fr-mbaka.jpg]
    Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka
     
    Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, controversial Catholic priest of Enugu Adoration Ministry, yesterday, alleged that there was an assassination attempt on him in Enugu, saying it was politically motivated.
     
    According to Vanguard, Mbaka’s spokesman, Maximus Ugwuoke, said the incident took place on Thursday.
     
    Meanwhile, Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, who was a beneficiary of Mbaka’s blessings last Sunday, has called for investigation of the allegation.
     
    The alleged assassination attempt came on the heels of the backlash against the Catholic priest following his statement that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and his running mate, Mr Peter Obi, will end in disgrace after Obi failed to donate to his church during a visit last week.
     
    In a statement, five officials of Adoration Ministry said other alleged attempts on the priest’s life in 2002 and 2015 were also politically motivated.
     
    The statement read: “It is with rude shock and utter surprise that we received the report of the attempted assassination plot of the Spiritual Director of Adoration Ministry Enugu Nigeria last Thursday evening by some unknown gun men who fired gun shots at him on his way in Enugu.

    “This incident has added to several other assassination plots targeted at Fr. Mbaka since after the first plot that was carried out on him on his way from the Bishop’s house where he had gone to answer an impromptu call by his Bishop during the regime of Governor Chimaroke Nnamani of Enugu State .

    “This   assassination plot against Fr. Mbaka is coming barely few days after the 2018 Harvest and Bazaar of the Ministry whereat Fr. Mbaka had come under massive media attack for asking Peter Obi, the PDP Vice Presidential candidate for the 2019 general elections who attended the Bazaar programme, to make public his support or donation for the Church Project of the Ministry.

    “Many supporters of Peter Obi and even clergies have misconstrued this as embarrassing to Peter Obi and to the Catholic Church and this has consequently given rise to the statement issued by   the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) that same Thursday on the issue.

    “The issue had lingered inspite of the apology which Fr. Mbaka in his characteristic humility had tendered at the altar to Peter Obi and anyone who may have, in any way, form or shape been offended at the Bazaar event.
    “We have refrained from making any official statement on the ongoing media attack against Fr Mbaka over the Baazar incident because he had held us back from joining issues with the Church clergies and hierarchies on the subject, but we cannot continue to keep silent especially now that the issue is taking the dimension of a plot to terminate his life.

    “We recall that the last time Fr. Mbaka raised alarm over threat to exterminate him was in early 2015 when he faced a similar persecution by some church hierarchy and the PDP Government following his 31st December Prophecy of the imminent defeat of former President Goodluck Jonathan led PDP Government by President Mohammadu Buhari at the 2015 general elections.

    “Today with the 2019 general elections around the corner, it appears that history is repeating itself.

    “The contemporaneousness of the recent attack of Fr. Mbaka by gunmen with the Peter Obi and the CBCN saga leaves us to a safe conclusion that the attack on Fr. Mbaka may have either been politically engineered or ecumenically endorsed, and thus we will not hesitate to call on the security agencies in this country to beam their search lights and leave no stone unturned in getting to the root of this issue.

    “Fr Mbaka’s life means so much to us and many poor and voiceless Nigerians for whom he lives and so we cannot be silent on the face of any threat to his life real or perceived”.
     
    Umahi, who spoke as Chairman of  the South-East Governors Forum, in a statement, expressed shock over the alleged assassination attempt on Mbaka and called on security agencies to unravel the circumstances surrounding the alleged attack on the Catholic Priest.
     
    The Ebonyi governor, in the statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Emmanuel Uzor described the alleged attack on the priest as highest provocation of man against God and called for full scale investigation to unravel those behind the attempted assassination.
     
    He said the attempted assassination of the Catholic priest showed how low men had descended in their inordinate quest for power and to silence the truth, and thanked God for saving the life of Mbaka while calling on the Inspector General of Police to dispatch a crack team to investigate the alleged attack.

  • The opposition party in Nigeria, the Peoples Democratic Party has alleged that its Vice Presidential candidate's account has been frozen.[Image: Peter-Obi.jpg]
    Peter Obi
     
    The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Organization (PPCO) has cried out over the stoppage of transactions on all accounts belonging to its Vice presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, wife, his family members and their businesses by agencies of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
     
    In a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said Obi has been threatened by the Buhari administration since he decided to run for Vice President in 2019 election.
     
    He decried the “stoppage of transactions on all accounts belonging” to Mr Obi, “his wife, his family members and their businesses by agencies of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.”
     
    He said since his nomination, Peter Obi, apart from facing series of failed attempts by the APC to destroy his reputation, has also continued to receive all manners of threats and blackmail, including threats to his life and those of his wife and children.
     
    The statement reads: “Since his nomination, Peter Obi, apart from facing series of failed attempts by the APC to destroy his reputation, has also continued to receive all manners of threats and blackmail, including threats to his life and those of his wife and children.

    “Having realized that the majority of Nigerians are rallying behind the duo of Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi as our Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates respectively, the Buhari Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have resorted to all manners of machinations, including smear campaigns and direct attacks on their persons and business concerns, in a bid to run them down.

    “The Buhari Presidency is intimidated by Peter Obi’s resume, particularly, his general acceptance as epitome of fiscal responsibility, frugality and transparency in governance.
     
    “Otherwise, why is the Presidency on a wild goose chase in investigating Peter Obi, who left office as Governor of Anambra state five years ago with a nationally acclaimed clean record, intact reputation for frugality, transparency, zero tolerance for corruption and leaving behind a huge saving of N75 billion naira in cash and investments; without owing any salaries, pensions, gratuities or even contractors for contracts executed?"

    While maintaining that the incident did not have the support of the Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria, Madu said the stand of the Catholic Church stated in its August 7, 2018 directives remains apolitical and does not support or subscribe to any political party.

  • Popular Nigerian cleric, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has warned his church members to stop using his pictures on souvenirs explaining that he is not God.[Image: Enoch%20Adeboye.jpg]
    Pastor Enoch Adeboye
     
    The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has warned people using his pictures and those of his wife for various souvenirs being sold across the country to kindly desist from such act as he is not God, The Nation reports.
     
    Adeboye said this on Friday at the ongoing annual Holy Ghost Congress of the church holding at the Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. The event brought together Christian faithful from 197 countries.
     
    “It has been brought to my notice that people are using my picture and that of my wife on key holders, calendars, books and other souvenirs.  This is wrong and anyone found with such materials should be arrested and reported to the police. I am not God. I did not send them. I have nothing to do with those materials. I am an ordinary man of God. God will never share his glory with any man. I am not ready to die. Devil, I am not ready to go,” Adeboye declared.
     
    He noted that what they are doing can lead to serious trouble, not for them, but for him.
     
    “If at any time, God is sensing that a man is trying to share his glory, the man is dead,” Adeboye said, adding that whether the devil likes it or not, he is not going anywhere yet. He added that “if you find anyone selling  anything whatsoever with my picture or my wife’s, report them to the police immediately.”
     
    He noted that recently a woman bought a key holder with his picture and his wife’s inscribed on it and gave it to her child and the child began to eat the key holder and in no time, the picture pasted on the key holder removed and surprisingly what they found was the picture of another tele evangelist, Prophet T. B Joshua.
     
    “I know you all know what that means. Please stop and cooperate,” he pleaded.
     
    He challenged the worshipers to continue to live their lives in accordance with God’s word. During the prayer session, wife of the General Overseer of RCCG, Pastor Folu Adeboye, lamented the spate of killings, occultism and wickedness being perpetuated by today’s youth, saying it calls for national repentance and a conscious appeal to God for forgiveness, if Nigeria will ever be great again.

  • [Image: BuhariReno-Omokri.jpg]

    Reno Omokri, the former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has stated the real reason President Muhammadu Buhari refused to approve the Electoral Amendment Bill.

    Buhari had for the third time withheld his assent to the bill.

    This was disclosed by his Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang.

    Buhari in a letter transmitted to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara dated December 6, 2018 and was published by his Personal Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, on Saturday via Twitter, explained that passing the bill could cause “some uncertainty about the applicable legislation to govern the process.”

    The letter read partly: “Pursuant to Section 58(4) of the constitution of the Federal republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), I hereby convey to the House of Representatives my decision on 6th December 2018 to decline Presidential Assent to the Electoral (Amendment) Bill, 2018 recently passed by the National Assembly.

    “I am declining assent to the Bill principally because I am concern that passing the new electoral bill this far into the electoral process for the 2019 general elections which commenced under the 2015 Electoral Act could create some uncertainty about the applicable legislation to govern the process.

    “Any real or apparent change to the rule this close to the election may provide an opportunity for disruption and confusion in respect of which law governs the electoral process.”

    However, Omokri said the new electoral act will stop votes of 75% of faceless voters who voted for APC in 2015 from been used in 2019.

    According to him, aforementioned was the real reason why Buhari failed to assent the bill.

    The former presidential Spokesman on his Twitter page wrote: “The real reason Buhari DOES NOT want to sign the Electoral Act is because 75% of the FACELESS voters who voted without PVCs in 2015, voted for Buhari. That is how he rigged the 2015 election. That is what the new Electoral Act will stop.”
