COVID-19: Buhari’s Nationwide Broadcast Was Done In A Hotel In Cuba — Nnamdi Kanu Alleges



The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s nationwide broadcast on Sunday was not done from the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The IPOB leader also said it was not a live broadcast but recorded.

Amidst claims by Kanu and some others that he has been secretly flown abroad to Cuba, President Buhari made a live broadcast from the Aso Rock Villa on Sunday, highlighting his government’s efforts in the fight against Coronavirus.

The broadcast was aired on Nigeria Television Authority, NTA, and other local television and radio stations.

However, Kanu, in a Facebook post, maintained his earlier claims about the President’s location, insisting that the broadcast was done in an unnamed hotel in Cuba.

Kanu, who tried to back his claims with some points, said the external intelligence division of his group, which he called the “M-Branch” has uncovered plans by alleged cabal in Aso Rock to hastily fabricate “a replica of the basement of the hotel in Havana Cuba where Jubril Al-Sudani recorded a poorly scripted video that aired on NTA.”

“A broadcast they touted as coming live from Aso Rock was in actual fact recorded in the basement of a hotel in Havana Cuba as I earlier warned the world they would,” Kanu claimed.

According to Kanu, who is a wanted man in Nigeria, workmen secretly entered the Villa early Monday morning to commence work on replicating the basement conference room of the Cuban hotel from “where a poorly edited video, both audio and visual, was shot of a man reading a written statement.”

Kanu said that “They hope to air a video of this hastily built previously non existent conference room on or before my broadcast on Wednesday April 1, 2020.

“During their now usual Femi Adesina photoshop session that precede every grand lie by Aso Rock, they foolishly forgot to give different colouration to the clothing of the fake journalist and cameraman they clumsily inserted in the photo.

“Carefully observe the photo below. NTA journalists are now on some kind of brown Coronavirus uniform or is this a new Aso Rock live presidential address Ashebi?

“This is how pathetic governance in Nigeria the great British Zoo in Africa has been reduced to. Lies upon lies, deception upon deception.”

He described Nigeria as a den of thieves, deceivers, the gullible and reprobates.

Recall that before now Kanu had alleged that Abba Kyari has “scampered” to Cuba for Coronavirus treatment.

Hours later, he said that President Muhammadu Buhari was hiding in Cuba with his Chief of Staff.

But the President showed the whole world he was in the country and also hale and hearty when he received the Minister of Health Osagie Ehanire and Director General of the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) Chikwe Ihekweazu, at the Presiential Villa. (Daily Post)

Rivers Govt Begins Decontamination Exercise



The Rivers State Government has kick started the decontamination of public places as part of measures to keep the state safe from coronavirus.

Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike who flagged off the programme today at Government House, Port Harcourt, said with the commencement of the exercise, all public places in the state will be decontaminated.

He restated his administration’s commitment to the protection of the lives of everyone living and doing business in the state.

“I have always said that the lives of Rivers people and those living and doing business in the state is paramount. Part of the reason why markets are still shut is because we have not decontaminated them.

“As we decontaminate the markets, particularly the ones in Obio/Akpor and Port Harcourt Local Government Area, traders will undertake to abide by all relevant protocols because we are talking about the lives of people.

“All public and private schools will be decontaminated before schools open. Churches and motor parks will also be decontaminated,” he stated.

The Governor reiterated that coronavirus is real and that people who denied its existence have started believing due to the number of persons that had died.


He warned that government will not allow recalcitrant persons who refuse to obey government advisories to infect law abiding citizens with the virus.

“This issue of COVID- 19 is real and government will not hesitate to seal up and prosecute owners of banks, shopping malls, restaurants, shops, business places or offices that fail to enforce social distancing and the wearing of face masks in their premises,” he said.

He urged the Decontamination Team not to compromise standards but to put in their best to ensure that the entire state is decontaminated.

In his speech, the Sole Administrator of the Rivers State Waste Management Agency, Bro. Felix Obuah said the Decontamination Team made up of medical and environmental experts was put in place in line with the governor’s directives to decontaminate public places in the state.

The Leader of the Decontamination Team, Dr. Ian Abraham Gobo pledged that the team will carry out the exercise with utmost dedication.

He commended the Governor for putting Rivers people first in his fight against COVID-19,adding that the decontamination of the state will give the people a new lease of live when normal business activities resume.
