Confusion Everywhere! Checkout This To Know If Nnamdi Kanu was Truly Arrested

Image
WAS MAZI NNAMDI KANU ACTUALLY "REARRESTED? Mazi Nnamdi KANU was advised by his international consultants and legal experts to hand himself over to the Nigerian government through the interpol, who are in charge of his safety throughout the period he will be in detention of the ZOO. The international community is about to ask Nigeria to conduct a referendum but Mazi Nnamdi Kanu needs to clear his name and his organization first from the terrorism charges placed against him by the Nigerian government, as the international community cannot oversee a democratic referendum with someone who is still proscribed by the country he's seeking right for self-determination from. This is why they have attempted to assassinate his lawyer Barrister lfeanyi Ejimofor, knowing he has a lot of evidence to use and win the government in the court of law. Remember, in the past few months, IPOB has made revelations about thousands of dollars being paid to hire international consultancy firms, those f

Just after launching Eastern Security Network, writer reveals Kanu's Christmas Gift To Biafrans

Image
(By Obulose Chidiebere) No one needs to be told that the most chilling news for Biafrans in this year 2020, was that which relayed the formation of the Eastern Security Network (ESN). It is the best and highest Christmas package that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has given. It is a gift of love, a gift of honour and a gift of courage.  Biafrans have variously seen how the deadly Fulani terror herdsmen are and the need for everybody including other indigenous ethnic groups in Nigeria, to protect themselves knowing fully well that those in authority have woefully failed the citizens.  Just according to Jubilee Campaign report of November 2020, it was stated that since the year 2001, over 60,000 people have died in the Middle Belt terror attacks. Between 2012 and 2016, Fulani extremists killed over 2,500 people in Nigeria, according to Global Terrorism Index report.  The International Committee on Nigeria [ICON] included in it's 2020 report, th

Buhari Is Dead: Professor Woke Soyinka Voices Out Finally

Image
By: Obulose Chidiebere Everyday that passes by, we see the truth unfold about Mazi Nnamdi Kanu's prophecies. His revelations about the dead President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari have been consistent. The Nigerian Nobel Laurette, Professor Wole Soyinka recently spoke about the absence of the Nigerian President. He added that the Nigerian situation has worsened as a result of the imperial nature of it's leadership at the socio-political and religious levels. Soyinka, a Professor of Literature, spoke at the Booksellers, venue of the presentation of his new book titled: ‘Chronicles of the Happiest People On Earth'. He stated: “With the turbulence that characterises the year 2020, and as activities wind down, the mood has been repugnant and very negative.  I do not want to sound pessimistic but this is one of the most pessimistic years I have known in this nation and it was not just because of COVID-19, no! Natural disasters had happened elsewhere but how have you m

I urge every Nigerian to pray for Sowore, Sambo Dasuki and others — Fani-Kayode

Image
Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, on Friday urged Nigerians to pray for the co-convener of RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore and former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki. He made the appeal while condemning the continued detention of Sowore by the Department of State Services, DSS, despite court order granting him bail. Fani-Kayode said the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has proven that it can “do anything they want, to anybody, for any reason and at any time” with Sowore’s continued detention. Justice Taiwo Taiwo of an Abuja Federal High court had granted Sowore bail but DSS has continued to hold the former presidential candidate in detention.  However, Fani-Kayode in a series of tweets wrote: “What amazes me is the utter gullibility of some of our people. Why would you be surprised that @YeleSowore, is still in detention? Has @MBuhari ever obeyed court orders? They did it to those of us in the mainstream opposition over the last 4 year

Image
Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State, yesterday said he would sack any of his aides who insult President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress. Umahi also warned that any of his appointees, who hitherto derived pleasure in talking down on his fellow governors across the country and their achievements, should henceforth, desist from doing so or have his or her appointment terminated. Governor Umahi dropped the charge in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on New Media, Mr Francis Nwaze and made available to Vanguard in Abakaliki. According to the Governor’s aide, anybody who wished to “throw unnecessary stone against any of the above mentioned leaders, should be ready to leave his government”. Nwaze, in the statement, added “The Ebonyi State Governor, Engr. David Nweze Umahi, FNSE, FNATE, has prohibited any of his political appointees from castigating or abusing the Nigerian President, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari. “Doing such to any government or any Governor i

Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister has reacted to remark by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo on being probed for allegedlly collecting N90bn from Federal Inland Revenue Services, FIRS, for 2019 election. Fani-Kayode dared Osinbajo to prove his mettle as a man by resigning and facing the former Deputy spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Timi Frank “man on man.” Mocking Osinbajo, the PDP chieftain said Frank “will eat you for breakfast.” Recall that Frank had alleged that the Federal Inland Revenue Services, FIRS, had released the N90bn to the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo for the 2019 general elections.  The political analyst had alleged that Osinbajo’s ongoing travails was allegedly due to corruption and had nothing to do with 2023 politics. He had claimed that he has reliable information from his sources in the presidency to the effect that Osinbajo’s travail has nothing to do with 2023 but alleged mismanagement of about N90 billion Naira released by t

I want to be like Bill Gates and give a chunk of my wealth to charity in the next few years — Dangote

Image
Aliko Dangote, president of the Dangote Group and chief sponsor of the Dangote Foundation, says he wants to be like Bill Gates and try to give a chunk of his wealth to charity in the next few years.  Bill Gates, the world richest man for 18 years, and his wife Melinda Gates had pledged — as far back as 2010 — to give away 95 percent of their wealth. According to most recent figures, Gates has given $45 billion to charitable causes through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Speaking at the Goalkeepers Summit in New York on Wednesday, Dangote said he would love to emulate Gates and give a chunk of his wealth to charity in a few years. Commenting on the person of Bill Gates, Dangote said: “Honestly one of the things that made me very shocked and surprised is that at that time I hadn’t had the opportunity of meeting Bill but meeting Bill changed me into a different person. “This is somebody that has nothing to do with us in Africa or Nigeria but he is putting his money and his

Nigerians should resist the temptations of speaking evil of the country and its leaders — Okowa

Image
Gov. Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta has charged Nigerians to resist the temptations of speaking evil of the country and its leaders. The governor gave the advice on Wednesday at the opening of the Standing Committee of the Church of Nigeria; Anglican Communion at St. Peter’s Cathedral Church, Asaba. The session, which was chaired by the Primate of the church, the Most Rev. Nicholas OKoh, had as its theme as  “Fight the Good Fight of Faith”. The governor said that words were spiritual and that through faith the country could be transformed, He said that there was a need for the church to teach its followers how to release faith unto good works. He said many children of God were good at praying and exercising their faith for finances, healing, children and material blessings but lacked faith to pray for the country and its leaders for transformation. “I conclude my brief remarks by noting that we need to also teach the flock to release their faith for the purpose of national developm

El-Rufai’s enrolment of his son in a public school is simply a 2023 political stunt — Shehu Sani

Image
Immediate past Senator who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th Senate, Senator Shehu Sani, has described Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s enrolment of his son in a public school as a political stunt for 2023. He said the action is clownish, comical and deceptive. Addressing journalists in Kaduna, Senator Sani said, “His action was simply a 2023 political stunt set up for the media and people who reside outside Kaduna. “For people who reside in Kaduna, they know what public primary school look like in the state, they know where they are located and the problems they are facing. “It is not because I have a political difference with him, no, but for whoever lives in Kaduna state knew that what the governor did with his son by enrolling him into public school was just a comedy. “It was a badly written Kannywood or Nolywood script. I know the governor likes Kannywood and Nolywood actors and actresses, but as far as l am concerned, that was a bad and poorly written script for the medi

If Nigerians think democracy is expensive and legislature is not necessary, try dictatorship — Adeyeye defends decision to purchase N5.5 billion SUVs

Image
Adedayo Adeyeye, spokesman of the senate, has defended the decision of the national assembly to purchase sport utility vehicles (SUVs) reportedly worth N5.5 billion for its members. Rationalising the decision, Adeyeye said if Nigerians think democracy is expensive because of the legislature they could experiment with dictatorship and do a cost analysis. Adeyeye said this, when he was asked about the huge sum earmarked for the purchase cars by the legislature, by journalists in Abuja on Tuesday. He wondered why the case of the legislature would be different when officials in the executive and in the judiciary have vehicles. “In this country, legislators, Ministers and civil servants were provided houses and then the policy was stopped,” he said. ”As of today, most government officials have official vehicles the same way judicial officials have. I have asked the question several times why that of the legislature is different? “It is simply because the legislature has not been

Elderly people in South East may embrace the Nnamdi Kanu-led IPOB, if Nigeria conspire and deny Ndigbo Presidency in 2023 — Ezeife

Image
Former Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, has said that the elderly people in South East may embrace the Nnamdi Kanu-led Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, if the other parts of Nigeria conspire and deny the zone Presidency in 2023. He also said that the agitation and crusade being carried out by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his group for a Biafra referendum were forced on Ndigbo by the country. Ezeife accused the Nigerian government of making deliberate efforts towards pushing the Igbos out of the country by denying them occupying sensitive positions including leading any of the security agencies. He told Vanguard: “You can’t beat a person and say don’t cry. What Nnamdi Kanu and others are doing is crying because they are beaten and they are doing it in a way that is non-violent. “Therefore, Nigerians should appreciate their method. I am happy the rest of the world, Europe, European Union, they met with Nnamdi Kanu and they saw point with what he was saying. “The (Unit

Image
The National Chairman of the Reformed-All Progressives Congress (R-APC), Engr. Buba Galadima, has revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari will handover power to someone from the Southwest region come 2023. Galadima, who used to be a die-hard associate of President Buhari said that the president is working to install a president of Southern extraction in the 2023. According to the former APC chieftain, it was difficult for Buhari to muster the needed intelligence to allow the presidency stay in the North beyond 2023. “I thought Buhari is working for the South, at least some part of the South. That is what every northerner believes,” Galadima, who is now in the camp of Atiku Abubakar and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, told Sun. Speaking on recent claim by Babachir Lawal that the North won’t relinquish power because there was nothing like zoning, Galadima added, “Forget about Babachir Lawal. I am not talking about Babachir Lawal. I am talking about Buhari and myself or the North.

Don't embark on ego trip accept the bitter truth from UN Rapporteur, that insecurity have escalated your administration — PDP to Buhari

Image
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Saturday told President Muhammadu Buhari not to embark on ego trip but to accept the alleged bitter truth over the claims by the United Nations, UN, Rapporteur, saying various forms of insecurity have escalated under his administration. It also told Buhari to seek for help, alleging that the Buhari administration has no solution to the alleged festering problems in the country. The opposition party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan said this in a statement in Abuja. In his words, “Buhari should show humility and accept the bitter truth that poverty, internal conflicts, bloodletting, banditry, kidnapping, insurgency, abuse of human rights and general national insecurity have escalated under his divisive, vindictive and repressive administration. “The party says instead of embarking on ego trip and picking a fight with the United Nation (UN) Rapporteur, Agnes Callamard, for highlighting the grave security issues in our country, which are already in th

South East is a part of Nigeria, it is their turn to produce the next president in 2023 — Tanko Yakasai

Image
Tanko Yakasai, a second republic politician, has said that it is the turn of the South-east to produce the next president in 2023. Yakassai said this in an interview with The Sun on Thursday, September 19, 2019, where he noted that a few Northerners clamouring for power in 2023 were doing so for their selfish interests. Yakassai added that the actions of President Muhammadu Buhari do not represent the general position of the north. According to him, “The North has 55 percent of the population of this country. One man from the North can’t speak and his views will be taken as the views of the entire North. It’s wrong. “Buhari didn’t speak for the North and his actions don’t represent the North. He’s just one man. We should separate these things and save the unity of this country. “When Buhari ran for election, he didn’t win the entire North. The man who ran against him was from the North too. “They divided the votes. If Buhari couldn’t win the entire North, does that not

By 2021, I will be too old to vie for governorship — Ngige debunks rumor

Image
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has debunked speculation that he is getting prepared to vie for the governorship of Anambra State in 2021. Ngige, who spoke to our correspondent in Obosi, in the Idemili Local Government Area of the state, described the story as false. He said, “That is not possible again. By 2021, I will be too old for that. So, you can see with me that is no longer plausible.” The minister, however, noted that the All Progressives Congress was in top preparation for the 2021 governorships race. The ex-governor stated, “Nothing will stop us this time from capturing the state in that election. We’re prepared and we’re ready.” He said since he left office as governor of the state in 2006, nothing significant had been added to his achievements in the state. Ngige said, “I just drove round the state; the only good roads you can ply in Anambra State were those built by me. It has become clear to our people that they need people

Anambra State House of Assembly has urged the Federal Government to make Air Peace Airline a National Carrier for its contributions in the evacuation of stranded Nigerians in South Africa. The lawmakers also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to confer on Chief Allen Onyema, Chairman of Air Peace, a national honour for his philanthropic gestures and contributions to human development. The resolution followed a motion by Dr Pascal Agbodike (Ihiala Il), and supported by 28 others, which was unanimously adopted at the plenary. Agbodike moving the motion at a special session in honour of Onyema, said that Air Peace boss transported Nigerians in danger out of South Africa free of charge. He described Onyema as: “a humble, non-tribalistic, generous, humanitarian and patriotic Nigerian who deserved to be recognised. “It is on record that his airline is a reputable one, and has won awards such as 2019 Best Carrier in West Africa, 2019 Local Airline of the Year, and many others. “Air
