Top US Newspaper Washington Post Mocks Nigeria’s President Buhari, ‘Believes’ He Is Truly An Impostor

Published

on

The Washington Post, a major American daily newspaper published in Washington, has mocked President Muhammadu Buhari’s reply to an allegation by the self-acclaimed leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, that he is an impostor.

The President had on Sunday in Krakow, Poland, during an interactive session with the Nigerian community in the country, denied the rumour that he is a clone.

Since Kanu resurfaced, he has been alleging that President Buhari is an imposter whose real name is Jibril Aminu Al-Sudani from Sudan and not a clone.

But Buhari, while speaking in Poland, where he is attending a climate change summit, said he would soon celebrate his 76th birthday, adding that “a lot of people hoped that I died during my ill health. Somebody just thought I am cloned, … it is real me I can assure you”.

In a satirical way, The Washington Post responded to the President’s response, saying: “Sounds like something a clone would say.”

    I’m greatfull to God for using Dr MOMOH to save me from hepatitis b virus. I’ve been carrying this virus for two years because to my best understanding there was no cure, until I met Dr Momoh. I used his herbal medicine as instructed by him, to God be the glory I went for the checkup and discovers the virus was gone. Contact him now via his whatsapp +2349058587788 or +2349068579672, he’s a God sent.

    Don’t go and do what will help you in life, continue with the propaganda that will take you to no where. PMB till 2023 and your hatred cannot change anything. He became the President in 2015 without your vote and he can win 2019 without your wish. He doesn’t need your support and vote before becoming the President in 2019.

Northern States Back FG On Schools’ Closure

Published

on

Education commissioners in the 19 Northern States have resolved to reopen schools only when it is safe to do so, following the spike in cases of COVID-19.

The commissioners in a communique in Kaduna on Saturday, after a virtual meeting to consider schools reopening and other issues to strengthen the education sector, said keeping schools closed in the face of the spike in COVID-19 cases across the country was a sure step to ensure that children remained safe.

The communique was signed by Dr Shehu Makarfi, Commissioner for Education, Kaduna State, who is also the Chairman of the northern states School Exchange Programme (SEP).

Other participants were his counterparts from Bauchi, Gombe, Niger, Nasarawa, Adamawa, Taraba, Kogi, Kwara, Katsina, Kano, Borno and Jigawa.

The commissioners applauded the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, for taking a decisive stand against school reopening and pledged their full support.

They resolved that “schools should be reopened only when it is safe to do so and when states have complied with the minimum COVID-19 safety protocols as outlined by the NCDC.”

They also said their states would “participate in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination and other examinations only when it is safe to reopen schools and when coordinated by the Federal Ministry of Education.”

They planned to carry out holistic assessment of schools to determine safety status for reopening and submit reports to their respective governors for consideration.

They also urged their respective states to take steps to provide critical facilities required for reopening of schools as specified by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.

“Schools’ infrastructure, such as dilapidated classrooms, students’ hostels, source of safe water, sanitary facilities, including hand washing equipment and security are critical and should be improved.

“We will equally clear schools of bushes and grasses, as well as fumigate school’s surroundings to support learning and ensure safety when schools resume,” they said.

They, however, appealed to the Federal Government to support states in putting safety measures in place for school reopening.

According to them, many states may not have the financial strength to embark on such a huge capital-intensive project.

Presidency Breaks Silence Regarding Probe Of Ex-EFCC Boss, Magu

Published

on

The Presidency has finally issued a statement regarding the probe of the embattled former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Ibrahim Magu after nearly two weeks of deafening silence on the matter.

Ibrahim Magu was removed as acting Chairman of the EFCC after he was arrested on the order of a special Presidential panel set up to investigate allegations of corruption and insurbordination against the anti-corruption Czar.

Journalists had been barred from the investigation venue and news regarding the ongoing case against Magu had been from largely unconfirmed sources as the Presidency kept mum on the matter.

Reacting to the investigation of Ibrahim Magu, in a statement, the Presidency said the traivails of the former EFCC boss was an indication that the Federal Government was serious about It’s war on corruption.

Senior special assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu said in the statement;

“Those who see Mr Magu’s investigation, as a signal that the fight against corruption is failing, have unfortunately, missed the boat.

“There is no better indication that the fight is real and active than the will to investigate allegations in an open and transparent manner against those who have been charged to be custodians of this very system.

Under this President and government, this is our mantra and guiding principle. There are no sacred cows, and for those who think they have a halo over their heads, their days are also numbered.

“Mr Magu was not immune – and regardless of the obvious embarrassment that potential acts of wrongdoing by him, given the office he held, may appear for the government.

“No other administration in the history of Nigeria would have moved to bring into the light and public domain such an allegation.”

Mr. Shehu Garba said further that specific, detailed allegations were made against Magu and preliminary Investigations revealed that a detailed investigation was necessary hence the constitution of a Presidential investigative panel.

He thereafter justified the suspension of the anti-corruption Czar saying;

“As is the proper procedure, when allegations are made against the Chief Executive of an institution, and in this case an institution that ought to be seen as beyond reproach, the Chief Executive has to step down from his post and allow for a transparent and unhindered investigation.

“The EFCC does not revolve around the personality of an individual, and as such cannot be seen through the prism of any individual.

“Therefore, the suspension of Mr Ibrahim Magu, allows the institution to continue carrying out its mandate without the cloud of investigation hanging over its head.

“The EFCC has many good, hardworking men and women who are committed to its ideal and ensuring that the wealth of our country isn’t plundered and wherein there is an act of misappropriation such person(s) are brought to justice.

“Meanwhile, Mr Magu is being availed the opportunity to defend himself and answer the allegations against him. This is how it should be, as is the fact that under the Laws of Nigeria every citizen is presumed and remains innocent until proven guilty.

“We must realise that the fight against corruption is not a static event, but a dynamic and ever evolving process, in which the EFCC is just one actor; and as we continue to work towards improving our democratic process so shall every institution of ours also embark on that journey of evolution.

“What is however important is that there must be accountability and transparency and our people must realize that they would be held to account. This is the building block in the fight against corruption, the establishment of the concept of Accountability and the recognition of the Rule of Law.”

This was contained in a statement signed by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity).

According to the statement: “A series of documented allegations were made against the Ag. Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Following a preliminary review of the allegations leveled against the Ag. Chairman and several other members of his staff, there were grounds for a detailed investigation to be conducted.

“Hence, an investigative panel was constituted in compliance with the extant laws governing the convening of such a body.

“As is the proper procedure, when allegations are made against the Chief Executive of an institution, and in this case an institution that ought to be seen as beyond reproach, the Chief Executive has to step down from his post and allow for a transparent and unhindered investigation.”
