Supreme judges in Nigeria especially the 7 who sat for the judgement of the Imo State governorship appeal that removed Hon. Emeka Ihedioha as governor of the state to face sanctions.
The National Press Club which is the world’s largest professional organisation for journalists, berated the Supreme court for delivering what they described as a flagrant fraudulent judgment on the Imo state governorship appeal.
It has warned that the judgment if not reversed could lead to more sanction against the judiciary, which is supposed to be the last hope of Nigerians.
The members of the club, who spoke at a recent roundtable, warned that there would be, “repercussions for the justices of Nigeria if the decision of January 14 which is flagrantly fraudulent and issued in bad faith is not reversed”.
According to one of the speakers, the United States recently passed a law, which empowers the president at the request of the Secretary of State and various committees’ chairmen in Congress to list persons abroad that would be denied visa, have their assets frozen and be excluded from the commerce of the United States, “if they are complicit in recognised internationally rights violations”.
Another speaker said, “in my view I think the Supreme Court justices would be at risk if this decision flagrantly tainted is not reversed and it could impact not only the seven Justices who sat in that particular case but the entire bench of the Supreme Court.
“The whole institution has shown that it is corrupted and compromised and we encourage others to remind them that others could be impacted if they stood on their earlier fraudulent decision”.
Accusing fingers were pointed at the leadership of the ruling party, the APC, the panelists noted that the Justices could not have done such a thing on their own without being pressurised from outside, stressing that, “no judges would want to expose themselves to such ridicle unless there were some other forces that were compromising their Independence”.
They noted that the earlier Visa ban on Nigeria was to stop the migration of people from other countries from migrating to the US through Nigeria

After about two weeks of treatment, the baby and the mother have now recovered and have since been discharged from the hospital. Of course, this is remarkable and amazing.

Father Reveals His Entire Family Including 11 Children Have Caught COVID-19
An entire Spanish family including eleven children have contracted the Coronavirus.
The Cebrian Gervas family from Valladolid in north-west Spain have all been forced to go under strict isolation in their home after every single one of them was diagnosed with the virus.
Mother, Irene Gervas was the first family to test positive for COVID-19, before her husband, Jose Maria Cebrian and their eleven children, Carmen (15), Fernando (14), Luiz (12), Juan Pablo (11), twins Miguel and Manuel (10), Alvaro (8), Irene (5), Alicia (4), Helena (3), and Jose Maria (1) were all diagnosed with the disease.
Father Jose Maria Cebrian told local media: ‘The children fell one by one. Some of them got over it better and some of them a bit worse. As the virus takes five or six days to show up when you feel bad you start to recall and then you think ‘ok!”
‘In our case, they (the children) are sick one day, they have a headache, they vomit and after vomiting, they feel better. The day after they don’t even remember.’
Since testing positive on March 14, the family is under a strict lockdown as they could infect others due to the high number of family members under the same roof.
Cebrian added: ‘The doctor told us that we will have to stay at least two more weeks on an absolute lockdown because of the viral load that we have. If we go out and take it out we could start a source in Valladolid.
According to him, their son is only allowed to go out to the pharmacy so long as he wears a face mask and gloves.
Cebrian also said: ‘He is the only one who goes out a bit. I take out the rubbish and he is the messenger. When we get our groceries delivered they leave it in the garage and my son goes down to pick it up.
The children are reportedly being home schooled using laptops, tablets and mobile phones.
Jose Maria said: ‘It is important they do not have the feeling that this is chaos, so they have classes from Monday to Friday.’
The country has recorded more than 117,000 coronavirus cases and nearly 11,000 deaths.
‘COVID-19 Corpses’ Can’t Be Claimed For Burial — Lai Mohammed
The Minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, says corpses of persons who tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) cannot be claimed for burial.
He said such corpses would be handled by the ministry of health because they are contagious.
He said this while speaking at a News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) forum in Abuja to give an update on the activities of the presidential task force on COVID-19.
According to NAN, the minister commended Nigerians for complying with the federal government’s stay-at-home directive, adding that it would boost the efforts of stakeholders in the fight to curb the spread of coronavirus.
“Coronavirus is very dangerous and contagious; there is no medicine for it yet and it is not just capable of killing, overwhelming healthcare system, it will destroy the economy. In some countries, they are putting dead bodies in big refrigerators, because the morgues have filled up. Nigerians should not forget that these are not the type of corpses that can be claimed for burial because it must be handled by the ministry of health,” he said.
He called for the cooperation of citizens and asked them to “stay safe, obey simple instructions of basic hygiene and social distancing,” adding that “in a few weeks, we will resume our normal life”.
So far, Nigeria has 190 cases of COVID-19. Of that figure, 20 persons have recovered and have been discharged from hospital.
