Why Yorubas Are Still Shouting One Nigeria — Nnamdi Kanu

Published

on

nnamdi kanu

The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu, has wondered if the people of South-West would still clamour for ‘one Nigeria’ if Apapa and Tin Can Island wharfs located in the region were closed.

Kanu who is presently in the United Kingdom has continued his call for boycott of the presidential elections.

In his latest tweet, the IPOB leader asked if the Yorubas will still be shouting “One Nigeria” if these ports were closed and every Nigerian forced to use Calabar and Port Harcourt seaports.

“If Apapa Wharf & Tin Can Island were closed indefinitely and every Nigerian forced to use Calabar & Igweocha seaports, will some Yorubas still shout One Nigeria?”

“#SitAtHome on February 16, 2019, and be counted”, he tweeted.

    Yurobas are making sure we Biafrans remain divided as they are using their churches as a tool as at now. Telling them to fight against anyone that is talking about Biafra freedom. Yuroba are evil. The same thing they are telling our brothers in the police, army and other zoo forces but in the end those they use will regret it very soon.

    their history is replete with internal distrust, many internal quarrelings and wars . they are not matured enough to manage themselves peacefully. the fear they have among themselves as well as Fulani invasions are the primary factors. they believed strongly that their security against Fulani invasions, internal peace etc lies in the Nigerian state.

    Yoruba are not happy in one Nigeria but as long as igbos are isolated in Nigeria politics Yoruba are happy managing Nigeria with any conditions from fulanies. In actual senses Yoruba are more marginalised than anyone else in Nigeria. It was Yoruba and Hausa fulani that fought civil war against igbos but after civil war the minority fulanis take all the lion share alone.

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.”

President Muhammadu Buhari has explained why he suspended Ibrahim Magu as Acting Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

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).

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