Social Media Abuzz Over Adeosun’s Resignation

Kemi Adeosun

Kemi Adeosun purported resignation like every other controversial report has occupied all the spaces in the social media.

Nigerians just like the way they do whenever important issues are reported have taken to the various social media to express their opinions on the alleged resignation of the minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun.

Recall that Kemi was accused of forging her National Youth Service Corps Certificate, NYSC, and had also been charged to make public her certificate.

But in what can be called a delay from the part of the federal government was experienced in the past two months since the news on the minister of Finance NYSC’s certificate saga broke.

Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said the allegations against a key member of the administration were yet to be proven.

His words, “The minister of information has spoken on the matter. And a process is ongoing to address the allegations. When that process is complete, Nigerians will know the outcome.

“Some people want a particular outcome and because they are yet to see this outcome, they are not happy. Give it (investigation) time. There is a process ongoing,” Shehu said during an interview on AIT’s Kakaaki.

Garba equally said that Presidency would act when it has all the facts need.

But today a report on the alleged resignation emerged and Nigerians have the following to say:

Abdulaziz Bakare

“Kemi Adeosun resigning is not what the law dictates. There will be “no sacred cows” when she’s arrested and prosecuted for the alleged forgery of NYSC Certificate. That is the law. Until then, this is just another episode of epic nollywood series.”

Dr Joe Abah

“I have just received, with sadness, news that Kemi Adeosun has resigned. She is a talented, courageous woman who drove a lot of important reforms as Minister of Finance. However, the NYSC saga had made her position untenable & the situation was only going to go from bad to worse.”

Tcee

“That Kemi Adeosun has resigned is not enough. She must be prosecuted for forgery. That’s when we will truly believe that’s “no secret cows” in this administration.”

SpeakUpNigerians

“Kemi Adeosun’s resignation is long over-due. I also think it’s time Nigerians should start clamouring for Pres. Buhari’s resignation too.”

Ọ̀GBẸ́NICZAR™ ỌMỌ́GBỌ́LÁHÀN #DADDYG

“Now, @HMKemiAdeosun has tendered her resignation over purported NYSC certificate that wasn’t entirely her own fault. Is it about time we stopped this archaic way of doing things?Must we continue to sacrifice competence on d alter of inanities? Done ur best. Move on “Kemi Adeosun”

Lizzet

“Lol Kemi Adeosun resigns few months to election and you say you’re proud of her? If Buhari wins 2019 elections she’s probably gonna be reinstated. She should be prosecuted abeg”.

YourFavOnlineDoctor

“The (now former) Honorable Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun has resigned. This is the noble and dignified thing to do. We should be proud of her. It should have come earlier but it has come nonetheless. And considering this is a country where honour is rare, I’m proud of her.”

Fulani People Own Nigeria, They’ll Rule Forever — Miyetti Allah

Published

on

Bello Abdullahi Bodejo, National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, is not a stranger to controversy or incendiary statements. He has stirred the hornets’ nest again by saying that his Fulani people own Nigeria and, thus, have no reason to obtain permission from anybody before settling anywhere!

It was a re-echo of what Alhaji Yusuf Maitama Sule once said, “Everyone has a gift from God. The Northerners are endowed by God with leadership qualities. The Yoruba man knows how to earn a living and has diplomatic qualities. The igbo man is gifted in trade, commerce, and technological innovation. God so created us equally with purpose and different gifts.”

Umar Labdo, a professor at the faculty of humanities, Maitama Sule University, Kano, also said in an interview with The Punch that the Fulani are destined to lead Nigeria for a long time.

He said: “Those who rule are those that are more civilised and educated. Now, Fulani happened to be more educated than all other tribes in Nigeria before the Europeans came. We are the ones who brought literacy here as we have manuscripts, hundreds of them, which were written between 300 and 500 years ago, when no other tribe knew how to write. And that is why the lot fell on our people to lead in this country and we are still leading the people. We are destined to continue leading people; but I know, if people read this, they will say he is a supremacist or something like that, no! It is not like that. This is a burden and we pay for it. Sardauna was killed because he was a ruler. If he had not been a ruler, why would he have been killed? Murtala Mohammed (former military head of state) was also killed. Why? It was because he was a ruler.”

Bodejo told The Sun:

“You should know that the Fulani have a right to go and settle anywhere they like, it is in the constitution and you shouldn’t break any law. If Fulani herdsmen go into any bush and settle there, what is their offence?

If as they claimed that their cattle were destroying crops, what is the work of the commissioner of police, he should go and arrest them and charge them to court.

By the way, who has the land they claimed that the herdsmen have settled? I, Bello Abdullahi Bodejo, if I decide to go inside bush and settle in any community, I won’t ask for anybody’s permission and be doing my activities, but I won’t offend anybody.

Even the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, it was the Fulani that first settled there. After they settled in one place and leave, then farmers come and start farming, and town start springing up there.

It is only Fulani that can go and stay inside any bush they like. They have right to go and settle in any bush in this country without asking anybody for permission. It is not against the law in this country. Who would they go to take permission from, is it the animals in the bush? You see from the village to the bush they are claiming is theirs maybe over 100 kilometers. How can herdsmen go and settle in a bush that is over 100 kilometers away from where the people live and you expect them to go and take permission from anybody. Who owns the land?

I don’t see any place where people will try and drive away the Fulani; they have right in this country. They produced Nigeria. They produced the first prime minister. If they produced the first president, another president, another president and so on, are they not the owner of the country? Fulani are ruling Nigeria and they must continue to rule the country forever. That is the truth.”

I Don’t Believe President Buhari Is In Charge — Wole Soyinka [VIDEO]

Published

Wole Soyinka

Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, has said that he does not believe President Muhammadu Buhari is in charge of the country.

He made this statement in reference to the open letter written to Buhari by a retired colonel and former military administrator of Kaduna, Umar Dangiwa, over the president’s habit of appointing people from his section of the country into office.

Reacting to this in an interview on PlusTv Africa’s ‘One-On-One’ on Thursday, the playwright and political activist said the answer to the nation’s problem is decentralisation.

The renowned writer commended the former military administrator who has a tendency to hit the nail hard and go straight to the point factually without self-interest.

He said: “Umar Dangiwa is one of the really serious letter writers without self-interest and when I saw this I was appalled but I shouldn’t have been appalled in the first place. I was appalled by the silence that followed this revelation. I think those who are responsible for this criminal lopsidedness should be punished. It is not sufficient just to discuss it. It’s criminal.

“I have said this before. I don’t believe there is really anybody in charge in Aso Rock. I’m sorry to say this. I’ve been studying the trend over the past year and a half and I believe this president is not in charge of this nation, in so many aspects and directions.

“I’m convinced he’s not really and totally with it.

“It’s so serious. It is not the fact alone, we know the history of this. We know what it has caused the nation, and we know it isn’t over yet. And you say are launching an enquiry. That’s not enough. This man is not in charge.”
