Six Anti-Amaechi Lawmakers List Impeachable Offences


EVANS BIPI

The six anti-Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi members of the State House of Assembly, on Thursday, listed impeachable offences committed by the state governor and vowed that they would carry out his impeachment at the appropriate time.

The leader of the anti-Amaechi lawmakers, Mr. Evans Bipi, said the governor’s interference in the affairs of the state judiciary and meeting with other members of the House of Assembly at the Government House, Port Harcourt, were impeachable offences that would count against the governor when the time comes.

Bipi, who made this known in a telephone interview on Thursday with PUNCH, also listed the alleged poor handling of the monorail project and purported seizure of the allowances of the six lawmakers perceived to be opposed to Amaechi’s administration as some of the governor’s impeachable offences.

Apart from Bipi, the other anti-Amaechi lawmakers are Michael Okechukwu Chinda, Kelechi Godspower Nwogu, Martins Amaewhule, Victor Ihunwo and Ikuinyi-Owaji Ibani.

He said, “But why is Amaechi afraid of impeachment? If he has not committed any impeachable offence, why is he afraid? Interfering in the affairs of the judiciary alone is an impeachable offence; meeting with lawmakers in Government House is an impeachable offence because that is not the hallowed chamber.

“Again, seizing our (six lawmakers) allowances, salaries and constituency projects funds is an impeachable offence. The poor handling of the monorail project is an impeachable offence.

“He used the project to siphon Rivers money. I have the figures on the monorail project and I will give them to you later. So, if he (Amaechi) has not committed an impeachable offence, why is he afraid?”

Bipi, however, explained that his group are not in a hurry to remove the governor from office, adding that the axe of impeachment would not pass over Amaechi’s head at the appropriate time.

“I can proudly say that we, the responsible and law abiding members of the Rivers State House of Assembly have said it time without number that we have no such plan to impeach Governor Amaechi, even though he is guilty of so many impeachable offences.

“We have the intention to impeach and when we do that, he will know that we are in the majority. We will impeach him when the time comes. But for now, we have no plan to impeach the governor. But he knows that he has committed a lot of impeachable offences”, Bipi added.

In his reaction, Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Otelemaba Dan-Amachree, said Amaechi was not under any threat of impeachment even as he noted that the governor had not committed any impeachable offence.

The speaker, who made his position known through his Press Secretary, Mr. Jim Okpiki, explained that nobody would stay by the roadside and talk about the impeachment of the governor, adding that the plan of the six anti-Amaechi lawmakers would fail.

“The issue here is that there has not been any list of impeachable offences brought before the Speaker and the House has adjourned indefinitely. You cannot just stay on the roadside and talk about impeachment.

“Those saying the governor has committed impeachable offences should make bold their threat if they can. The truth is that there is always a new strategy to keep those causing this crisis in business. Governor Amaechi is not under any threat of being impeached”, he stressed.

Arisekola-Alao-sympathizersThe remains of Aare Musulumi of Yorubaland, Alhaji Abdul-Azeez Arisekola, were buried in his home in Ibadan, Oyo State on Friday amid tears by family members, friends and associates.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Arisekola died in a London Hospital on Wednesday.

The corpse was brought to Adamasingba Stadium at exactly 10.05a.m. in ebony casket for prayer.

After the prayer led by Chief Imam of Ibadan, Sheik Haruna Suara, the corpse was taken to his Oluwokekere House, Ibadan, for interment.

President Goodluck Jonathan was represented at the burial by Sen. Musiliu Obanikoro, Mr Jelili Adesiyan and Mr Jide Adeniyi, Minister State for Defence, Minister of Police Affairs and Chairman of FERMA respectively.

Also present were the  APC National Leader, Sen. Bola Tinubu, Industrialist Chief  Kola Daisi; businessman, Oba Otudeko; former Inspector General of Police, Mr Musilu Smith and Prince Ladigbolu.

Govs. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun and Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun, were also there.

Former Arch-Bishop of Ibadan, Alaba Job; Primate Ola Makinde and Abimbola Fashola, wife of Lagos State Governor, also attended.

Malam Abdurahaman Ahmad, National Missioner, Ansar-u-deen Society of Nigeria, implored the rich to emulate the philanthropic virtues of Arishekola.

“Arisekola was generous, friendly and accommodating to all and sundry, especially the downtrodden’’, he said.

Gov. Abiola Ajimobi extolled the virtues of the late religious leader, describing him as a philanthropist of philanthropists, who served the poor and also helped the rich during his lifetime.

“Aare was to the Nigerian masses what the late President Nelson Mandela was to the South Africans.

“He served the poor and helped the rich. He came to serve humanity and served them to his very last.

“He was accommodating, spiritual, religious and intelligent. He had been serving the poor from the age of 19. He was the greatest philanthropist of our time.

“Aare gave everything he had for the benefit of the people’’, the governor added.

Ajimobi said it was the good works done by the late business mogul that motivated his government into declaring seven days of mourning and a public holiday for him.

He said such a feat was unprecedented in the history of the state.

The remains of Arisekola were laid to rest at 11.15 a.m. in his Oluwokekere residence in Bashorun, Ibadan.

Security operatives had a hard time controlling over one thousand people who forced their way into the premises with many falling and sustaining minor injuries. (NAN)

Two anti-corruption crusaders in Imo state allege intimidation and rights violation by the state government for exposing corruption in the state
By Chidiebere Onyemaizu
When a citizen squeals on monumental corruption and stinking underhand deals amongst top functionaries of a system he was an insider, should intimidation, harassment, threat to life, unlawful detention and trumped-up charges be his reward for daring to make such exposure? And why should another anti-corruption crusader who helped to bring the issue to the public domain also become an endangered specie?
This is the jigsaw Kenneth Uwadi, a social and anti-corruption crusader, wants the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to solve. In a petition dated June 6, 2014 addressed to the Commission, Uwadi who is the Coordinator of Youths Against Human Rights Violation and Corrupt Practices (YAHVCP) revealed that Samuelson Iwuoha, former Media Aide to the Speaker of Imo state House of Assembly, Benjamin Uwajimogu, is currently incarcerated by the Imo state government on account of his corruption allegation against the Speaker. Uwadi’s petition:” I wish to bring to your notice, the human rights violations currently taking place in Imo state… the government of Imo state has thrown a popular Imo state anti-corruption activist, Samuelson Iwuola and members of his family, including his wife in jail without trial since June 3, 2014.”
According to Uwadi, Iwuoha was whisked away by security agents on June 3, 2014 after gunmen had made an attempt on his life. A band of hoodlums, allegedly at the behest of the government had gone on a rampage at his residence to intimidate him for not shifting from his position of alerting Imo people that corruption runs rampant in the state.
Uwadi, who is also an Online blogger stated that, the hoodlums, in the process of intimidating Iwuoha murdered an innocent bystander. “They killed an innocent bystander to send the message loud and clear to Mr. Samuelson that some “other things” are imminent. When the gunmen opened fire, people scampered to safety and some persons ran into his apartment, the person murdered was no murdered in Samuelsons apartment”.
Uwadi told the NHRC in his petition that the police in collaboration with Speaker Uwajimogu are now plotting to charge Iwuoha for murder and cultism to silence him. “His only crime is that he was opening politicians’ corrupt deals and telling them to stop stealing Imo people money,” he informed the NHRC.
In what could be termed guilty by association, Uwadi who hails from Mmahu –Egbema in Ohaji/Egbema as Samuelson, is alleging that the Imo state government is desperately searching for an alibi to frame him up for daring to speak up against alleged corrupt tendencies of Rochas Okorocha’s government:
“I have also been reliably informed that the government of Imo state is also looking for what to frame me with so as to come after me,” Uwadi told the NHRC.
According to Uwadi, the government is after him, among other things, because he demanded accountability from the Okorocha administration: “They are after me because I asked them to tell Imo people what happened to N26.27 billion left behind by former governor Ikedi Ohakim. I asked them why they borrowed N45 billion and N28 billion Naira in loans from banks with Imo LGA allocation as collateral for three years and the money squandered,” he lamented.
Continuing, Uwadi who runs FAMOUS NAIJA blog stated that the Imo state government is equally after him because “I asked the Speaker of Imo state House of Assembly who looted N3 billion Imo tax payers’ money and used the money to build eye popping mansions all over while he is still in government. I asked why Jude Ejiogu, the Chief of Staff to the Imo State governor who looted N1 billion Imo LGA pension funds is honoured with appointments upon appointments. I told them that Ejiogu also looted tax monies paid by banks in the state.”
The anti-corruption crusader further alleged that “governor Okorocha is looting the 13 per cent oil derivation funds of oil producing Areas in Imo State ISOPADEC” and lamented that because of his crusade against corruption in the state, he has endured all manners of indignities from the state government including “using police to harass me, branding me thief, blackmailer etc.”

HOW GOVERNOR ROCHAS OKOROCHA LOOTED 16 BILLION NAIRA IMO 13 PERCENT OIL DERIVATION FUNDS IN 3 YEARS


HOW GOVERNOR ROCHAS OKOROCHA LOOTED 16 BILLION NAIRA IMO 13 PERCENT OIL DERIVATION FUNDS IN 3 YEARS

Some months ago, I made a telling revelation that the sum of 1 billion naira belonging to pensioners in the 27 LGA of Imo State was “squandered” by Sir Jude Ejiogu the current Chief of Staff to the Governor of Imo State. Ejiogu squandered this money when he was the Chairman of Imo State Local …Government Service Commission. I lamented the “squandering of the significant sum of 1 billion naira and another 3 billion naira looted by the Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly Mr Benjamin Uwajumogu. I cried out because most Imolites but especially the poor, continue to suffer the effect of failing public health and education system as well as decrepit infrastructure and battered institutions. I highlighted what I see as the dawn of naked impunity in Imo State.

Uwajumogu, Ejiogu and their megaphones have called me all sorts of names. I have been threatened, i have been harassed and i have been closely monitored. They want to shut me up by all means. But as a citizen of Imo State, I am not intimidated. I will continue to speak out. One of the fundamental elements of democracy is the right to free speech without having others trample on your opinion. The capitalist thieving vampires currently in power in Imo state are looting our monies and yet they want us to shut up. They also want us to vote them again in 2015 for another round of impunity.

I am not accusing these men falsely as they are claiming. I speak the truth about their fraudulent activities with anger. You will recall that in May, 2011, Owelle Rochas Okorocha took power from Ikedi Ohakim as Governor of Imo State. There was high hope by the masses that Okorocha’s rule will bring an end to mass poverty, worsening living conditions, mass unemployment, suppression of democratic rights, massive corruption, and insecurity of lives and property. But more than 3 years after, the high expectations of Imolites for real positive change in their lives have been shattered. Not only has there been no substantial improvement in the lives of the Imo working masses, in some respect the situation has become worse. Thousands of Ndi-Imo still live without access to good food, housing, good roads, water, electricity and healthcare while Okorocha and his men are looting our monies.

The anti-poor policies of sales of Imo public assets, commercialization of health, housing and other social services, and sack of workers in Imo State have made more and more Imolites poorer and the rich minority richer. Corruption among the elite has not only remained, it has become more sophisticated. Imo State has become one of the most unequal societies in the world, with the richest 20% of Imolites getting 55.7% of the state’s total income while the poorest 20% are left to struggle for just 4.4%. Currently Imo faces gargantuan problems in all areas of socio-economic and political endeavours. The State has further nosedived under the Owelle Rochas Okorocha’s government, lower than any other time since 1999. In every area you look at the only conclusion you will come to is that the Okorocha’s government has failed Imo people resoundingly.

Mind you, when i say Okorocha has failed Imo , it is not an isolated opinion. Indeed this is the opinion of the mass majority of Imolites. According to a FAMOUS NAIJA opinion poll conducted in August 2013 , 81% of Nigerians assessed Okorocha’s performance in Imo as very bad; but only 19% assessed his performance as very well and fairly well. In March 2014 another FAMOUS NAIJA opinion poll was conducted and 85% of Nigerians think the present Owelle Rocha’s government has performed very badly in improving the living standard of the poor while only 15% think he is doing very well in improving the living standard of the poor.

The most serious aspect of Imo’s problems is the poor and hopeless condition of the youths. Today unemployment has become a permanent feature of the life of Imo youth. Governor Okorocha has failed to offer Imo youths a real future. He sacked 10,000 Imolites from the civil service in year 2011.The 10,000 sacked youths are suffering today.

I cannot keep quite and watch Okorocha and his men loot Imo dry.Last week, I was in Bonny Island in Rivers State of Nigeria . I arrived the Island in the morning by boat and was amazed to see that the Island has electricity as the eyes could see . I turned to Mrs Hart who came to welcome me and I inquired about the reliability of electricity in the Island. “It’s steady,” She said. “How often do you see power outages?” I asked. She said “we have light here 247.If they take it,it comes back in 15 minutes time. In fact, I can’t remember the last time we witness power outage here in Bonny. It is pay as you go. You recharge your card and your light is on” I could hardly mask my bewilderment and sense of humiliation!I felt humiliated because I am from an oil producing kingdom like Bonny called Egbema in Imo State. By contrast, the people of Egbema’s narrative in terms of electricity is awful .

Power supply is non-existent in the 13 Egbema towns. Since Governor Rochas Okorocha came into power in 2011, the people of Egbema have not seen electricity. Yet on monthly basis 13 percent oil derivation fund is paid to Imo State for the development of the oil producing areas in Imo. Out of this 13 percent oil derivation found 40 percent is meant for ISOPADEC, the commission set up to develop Imo oil areas. Where are the monies? From may 2011 to December 2013 Imo state received N16,613,768,782.98 (sixteen billion, six hundred and thirteen million seven hundred and sixty eight thousand seven hundred and eighty naira ninety eight kobo) as 13 percent oil derivation funds for development of the oil communities in Imo State. Find below the monthly breakdown.

The monies have developed wings. It is so sad to note that leaders from Ohaji/Egbema/Oguta where Imo oil money comes from are not speaking about the comatose ISOPADEC. Schools, water, road and hospital rehabilitation in Ohaji/Egbema/Oguta which form part of the duties of ISOPADEC remain in their same dilapiladated state and the political class from the oil area are not speaking about the development. Next week I will give you figures of LGA funds looted in Imo state. Do we allow just one person in the capacity of governor Rochas Okorocha to continue to make our mothers and grandparents suffer helplessly in the villages? Do we continue to allow the governor of Imo State to deprive local governments of the funds needed to build schools, roads, motor parks, markets etc.? Do we continue to herald him with the title “His Excellency” when he has made us beggars and impoverished us in a perpetual state of squalor?

Do we continue to clap for Owelle Rochas Okorocha at the commissioning of petty projects, which is far below the commensurate allocation given to him? Let’s ask questions now ,otherwise we shall continue to cry aloof with no one to beckon on us. We shall bear the pains of our parents been rejected in the hospitals for our inability to pay their medical bills, our siblings shall continue to be denied admission because of free education on paper while schools are denied developmental funds. We shall be tempted to become kidnappers and arm robbers at our own peril. Let us stop placing ourselves in subservient position, thereby helping an uncaring governor to achieve his deadly political ambitions at the expense of the state. Wisdom is profitable, how long shall we continue to be fooled?

Oyo State Big Player, Alhaji Arisekola Alao Is Dead


The Oyo State business man and Aare Musulumi of Yoruba land is dead. He passed on today in London at 69

Abdulazeez Arisekola Alao is a notable Nigerian businessman and contractor who was the publisher of the now defunct Monitor Newspaper. He is considered a wealthy businessman who is known for his causes in support of Islam in Ibadan and his close ties to many of the city’s traditional and religious elites and to various other Yoruba Muslim leaders. He bears the title of Aare Musulumi of Yorubaland.

Arisekola saw his fortunes rise during the regimes of Ibrahim Babangida and Sani Abacha while his style is sometimes criticized as favoring any regime that can butter his nest. He was both a friend of MKO Abiola and Sani Abacha but was actively involved in supporting the latter to elongate his tenure through a transition from military to democratic leadership.

Born in 1945 to Abdul Raheem Alao and Olatutu Alao, he attended St Luke’s Primary School, Adigun and ICC Primary school, he also studied Arabic Studies. In 1960, he was with the Ogunpa-Oyo Commercial Center before venturing into full time business a year later. His traditional commercial focus is in auto sales, flour mills and oil marketing through his Lister brand, he has also developed interest in real estate, insurance, banking and publishing.

Originally, he came from humble means, joining his uncle as an apprentice in Gbagi market of Ibadan in 1960. He left in 1961 to sell gammalin 20 vide and later became an agent of Imperial Chemical Industries.

By the 1970s, he was a dealer of Datsun brand of motors under Lister Motors.

In the 1970s and 80s: Arisekola was serenaded by the Juju singer Ebenezer Obey around the late 1970s while later being conferred with the title of Aare Musulumi of Yorubaland by the league of Imams and Alfas from the region in 1980. Though, along with his friend, Abiola, he courted controversy and raised already existent inter-religious tension when he raised issues about the location an iconic cross to depict places of worship at the University of Ibadan. The cross which was erected in the 1950s when only a church was a place of worship at the institution but Muslim worshipers claimed that the cross was located on the Eastern side of the mosque and was a violation of Islamic requirements not to see an idol, cross or effigy during worship. In 1990, he was co-chair of a committee interested in promoting cross fertilization of ideas and inter-religious understanding between Christians and Muslims.

During the democratic period of the Sani Abacha era, Arisekola, along with Lamidi Adedibu pitched his tent with the Democratic Party of Nigeria also known as DPN. However, his closeness with the Abacha administration has erred him detractors within Yorubaland. His Monitor Press outfit was burnt in May 1998 during the aftermath of the campaign for the prolongation of the Abacha government and right after the death of Abacha, a visit to University of Ibadan caused a minor riot when students shouted down at him and proceeded to burn his limousine as a result of anger fueled at him due to his relationship with the corrupt Abacha administration.

Arisekola doubles as the president-general of the Grand Council for Islamic Affairs and member of the Board of Trustees of the Nigeria Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs, NSCIA.

In Ibadan Arisekola has contributed to many Islamic causes including the construction of mosques and alms giving to many residents who troop to his home. He is a patron to many Yoruba Muslim groups including the youth wing of the National Council of Musim Youth Organizations of Nigeria (NACOMYO) and some Yoruba Muslim womens group.

Aside from that, Alhaji Abdul Azeez Arisekola ALao is a man of honour both home and abroad. His a forthright leader and a father who loves people making it in life; if you understand is way of life.

IMO POLICE PLAYING POLITICS WITH SAMUELSON’S RELEASE


 

It has now been revealed that the Imo state police command in conspiracy with the speaker of Imo state House of Assembly, Mr. Benjamin Uwajumogu is playing politics with the release and bail of detained socio-political crusader, Citizen Ikenna Samelson Iwuoha and his wife.

Having woefully failed to arraign the activist in court so as to  have him reprimanded in prison custody, the police authority came to the conclusion that it will be better to dance around with the release of Iwuoha.

It should be recalled that Samuelson, his wife and 17 others were released on the 6th of June,2014 on the  orders of the Imo state Governor Owelle Rochas Okorocha through his Chief of staff Sir Jude Ejiogu and on the fact that it was discovered through security meetings that Iwuoha and his family were not involved in the murder of the young man but in order to justify the money they allegedly collected from Speaker Uwajumogu to victimize Ikenna Samuelson, the police authority have  resorted to playing  hide and seek games with effecting the release order fearing that Ikenna Samuelson will drag them to court for illegal detention.

A source from the police command has said that the police will defend themselves by claiming that Citizen Iwuoha has refused to bring a credible guarantor to take him on bail but the whole truth is that the social crusader has been bringing people including lawyers to take him on bail but the police have been dancing  to the Ihitte Uboma  music of Mr Benjamin Uwajumogu.

When will this obvious injustice come to an end? Imo must be better indeed.

When Bisi was called upon to give her vote of thanks, she thanked God for the grace He gave her to open the store and also spoke briefly about her past relationship. Bisi was also fast to let the cat out of the bag, when she thanked God for her new man, the love of her life, a Lagos big boy simply known as Sola for standing by her. Bisi who was visibly all over him, said she’s glad to have found the man of her dreams.

“We Will Bring Down Nigeria If Boko Haram Attacks Igboland” – MASSOB


The Movement for Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra has threatened to “bring down” Nigeria should any part of the Southeast be bombed. And this is coming days after bombs were discovered at Winners’ Chapel church in Owerri and alleged Boko Haram members arrested in Abia.

MASSOB leader Ralph Uwazuruike, who spoke in a telephone interview with The Nation, warned that his group would no longer tolerate the mindless killing of Ndigbo in any part of the country.
According to him, the movement would “retaliate with equal and decisive force if terrorists attack any city in the zone”.
His words:

“The position of MASSOB on this matter is firm. We will bring down Nigeria, if any bomb goes off in the Southeast. We can no longer tolerate the mindless killing of Ndigbo
in any part of Nigeria because we will retaliate with equal force against any attack on any part of Igboland.”

The group also warned against what it described as the deliberate posting of military, police, Customs and Immigration officers, who are Igbo, to the Northeast to confront the Boko Haram insurgents.
It alleged that their counterparts from the North were being posted to the Southeast for safety. But MASSOB did not support its stand with figures. MASSOB claimed that such a measure was part of the grand plan of the pre-Nigerian civil war agenda to totally annihilate Igbo officers and men in the nation’s military by the powers that be.

The incident was confirmed by NDLEA’s Public Relations Officer in Ogun state, Mr Abdullahi  Sarduana.

 

Gunmen Kidnap Bayelsa Commissioner’s Mother, Demand His Resignation


Gunmen numbering about six have kidnapped the mother of the Bayelsa State Commissioner for Lands and Survey, Mrs. Patimi Akene. The 78-year old woman was kidnapped on her way back from a church programme on Saturday night in company of one of her granddaughters.

The men who didn’t fire a single shot, carefully bundled her and her granddaughter into a waiting boat and sped away. It was gathered that when the old woman tried to scream, a handkerchief was deep into her throat before she was carefully whisked away.

Surprisingly, the kidnappers have called her son, and demanded for his resignation as ransom instead of their usual demand of money.

Speaking to the press the commissioner, Mr. Furoebi Akene said;

“Someone that I suspected to be one of the kidnappers called me and said they don’t need my money. But that I should ‘withdraw’ from the present administration as commissioner. I think what they are demanding is for me to resign my appointment.

“My brother, I think the people interested in my job as commissioner in the state are the ones behind the abduction of my mother.”

The police are doing everything in their power to arrest the culprits.

Abigail Fashanu Breaks The Silence…Speaks About Her Rumoured Marriage Breakup


 

Ex-beauty queen Adaeze Yobo’s mother, Mra Abigail Fashanu who is married to former soccer star, John Fashanu has she is still very much with her husband contrary to the rumours going around time that they have gone their separate ways. Here is what she told Encomium while denying the claims;

“People just like to fabricate lies probably because I am a quiet type. I don’t make noise all around. I concentrate on my work and home. Even as a professional, I still create time for my husband. We create time to be together so no gap exists between us. All I can say is that our enemies wish our marriage would crash. They can only wish, it won’t come to pass because we are meant for each other. They said the same thing about my daughter, Adaeze last year and she replied her adversaries. She was strong and overcame. If she can be strong against all odds in marriage, then I am a lioness.”

John Fashanu and Abigail were united as husband and wife via registry in Abuja in 2011. Fashanu, 51, has two children from former wife, Congolese beauty queen, Melissa Mapsi and another one from a previous relationship. His legal practitioner wife on the other hand at 47, has four children from her first marriage which ended by divorce 12 years ago.

Iran Team’s Coach on Scoreless Draw with Nigeria: “It is a huge achievement!”


queiroz Bella Naija
Carlos Queiroz, coach of  Team MelliIran’s national football team, says the scoreless draw of the Nigeria vs. Iran match is a huge achievement for his team.
According to him, his players have only ever played in amateur leagues. And so the fact that they could give the more experienced  Super Eagles players  a tough time, is commendable. He says his team celebrated after the match.
“They deserved the celebration because of the hard work they put in to contain the Nigerians, particularly because of the high pedigree of players that made up the Eagles.
We came out of a difficult condition. We did not even enjoy the luxury of playing friendly games. We played an honest game.
“It is better to go home with a point rather than praises as losers,” he said. 

Tension, Anxiety & Frustration to Blame for Super Eagles’ underperformance against Iran – Stephen Keshi


 
After the Nigeria v. Iran match yesterday which ended in a scoreless draw, many of Super Eagles’ fans expressed displeasure about the game’s outcome.
Stephen Keshi, coach of the Super Eagles says the team performed below expectations due to tension, anxiety and frustration, Punch reports.
“We had all expected to wrap up the game within the first 20 minutes, but tension, anxiety and frustration combined to adversely affect the team.
But you know this is football. It is not the end of the World Cup; the boys had tried to score goals many times and their failure to secure early goals must have led to anxiety.
We will give our best in the two matches left. I tried to offer advice to the boys at the end of the first half, but you know I cannot jump into the field to play for them because that will not be possible.
The boys made their promises but did not quite get over it,” he said. 
Mikel Obi, defensive midfielder for the team also spoke about the issue, reportedly stating that, “We still

have two games to go. We have to get back and correct our mistakes. They (Iranians) came out to frustrate us.’’

Germany whitewash Portugal


Thomas Muller

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Portugal were comprehensively dismantled by Germany in the first match of Day 5 at the 2014 World Cup. Thee goals from 24-year-old Thomas Muller and a thumping header from Matt Hummels was the difference makers.

And following the script of the other huge match at this tournament; Spain against the Netherlands, this one proved to be a mis-match. But they could not have been helped by Pepe’s dismissal, who displayed utter folly when he got involved with Muller.

Both teams adopted a calm approach in the earlier exchanges and it was the Germans that took the first shot at goal after a dashing run from the right wing

Portugal then had their first chance when Ronaldo made a little run before giving a through pass to Hugo Almeda who failed to do justice to the opportunity.

Also in the sixth minute Ronaldo fired a shot from over 30 yards but the attempt was harmless for goalkeeper Manuel Neuer who watched the rising shot go wide.

Germany almost found themselves behind when a sloppy defensive error gifted Portugal a chance but Manuel Neuer was up to the task.

Attention was quickly shifted back to Portugal’s box when this time around a mis-kick by the Portugal goal keeper fell it to the legs of Sami Khedria who fired a quick shot which agonisingly missed the mark.

With increasing pressure on the Portuguese defence, Joao Pereira was forced to pull down Mario Gotze inside the area and Muller converted the resultant penalty kick in the 11th minute. That was Muller’s sixth World Cup goal in seven matches.

Despite the early goal the Germans never sat back as they pressed on for a quick second but the Portuguese were equally pushing their weight for an equaliser.

Nani tried to drew level for his side but his shot in the 25th minute was inches high over the cross bar

There was soon to be a drawback for Portugal as the Paulo Bento owing to a knock to Hugo Almedia had to bring in Elder as replacement.

The craving for a second goal for the Germans materialised when Hummels gave Joachim Low’s side with another goal when he rose above his markers and nodded in the well-delivered corner kick from Toni Kroos in the 32nd minute. 

While hoping they could manage the situation they have found themselves, Portugal’s case turned from bad to worse as Real Madrid defender Pepe was red carded after altercation with Mueller in the 36th minute.

The Germans capped their superlative first half performance with a third goal as Muller profited from a bad clearance to take his world cup goals tally to seven in as many matches.

The second half was more of damage limitation from the Portuguese and the Germans also took it slow.

Mesut Ozil had a chance to score his first in the 51st minute but Patricio made a good save and the rebound fell to Muller who headed over. More woe then befell Portugal as Fabio Coentrao pulled a hamstring and had to be replaced. Hummels followed Coentrao when he hobbled off in the 73rd minute for debutant, Shkodran Mustafi. Muller then added the icing on the cake when he prodded home from close range after Patricio could not hold on to a cross by Andre Schurrle in the 78th minute. Portugal had a cogent claim for a penalty in the 82nd minute but they were denied and Ronaldo went ballistic with the Serbian referee. Ronaldo then called Manuel Neuer into action in additional time but the Bayern goalkeeper parried to safety. Portugal must of essence have to beat the USA and Ghana to stand any chance of qualifying for the second round. Ratings GERMANY: Neuer (6); Boateng (6), Mertesacker (6), Hummels (7), Howedes (6); Lahm (7.5), Khedira (6), Kroos (7), Ozil (6), Gotze (6); Muller (8) Subs: Schurrle (6), Podolski (5), Mustafi (5 PORTUGAL: Patricio (6); Pereira (5), Pepe (3), Alves (5), Coentrao (6); Valoso (4), Moutinho (5), Meireles (5), Nani (6), Ronaldo (5); Almeida (4) Subs: Eder (6), Costa (4), Almeida (4) -

 

 

Nigeria 0-0 Iran: Super Eagles play out bore draw with Iran


Nigeria v iran draw

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Super Eagles and the Team Melli of Iran played out the first draw of the 2014 FIFA World Cup on Monday in Curitiba. The Eagles had a lot of possession but could not make inroads in the last third, as the Iranians stood strong. And the Iranians had the best chance of the first half, which saw a good, save from Vincent Enyeama. And it took until the 90th minute when Ahmed Musa sent in a cross and Shola Ameobi almost got on the end but Mehrdad Pooladi made a brilliant clearance. Argentina lead Group F with three points while Bosnia & Herzegovina are last on the tabel with no points. First Half The first half ebbed and flowed as the two sides committed to attacking and chances were created at both ends. The Super Eagles started the better of the two teams as they looked for the early goal and Victor Moses was the first to let off a shot, but it was tame as Alizera Haghighi easily gathered. Emmanuel Emenike won the first corner kick of the game in the seventh minute but Mikel Obi was called for a foul after Ahmed Musa forced home the rebound. The Super Eagles should have taken the lead in the eighth minute as Emmanuel Emenike’s cross was almost diverted home by Musa and from the clearance; Ogenyi Onazi prodded his shot wide. He got injured in getting his shot off and required some treatment. Moses went on a run in the 13th minute but he ran out of pitch. Ambrose followed that up with a cross, which was directly at Haghighi. Oboabona then got injured in a jump with Khosro Heydari and though he came back on the pitch, Joseph Yobo replaced him in the 29th minute. Enyeama promptly handed over the captain’s armband for the defender winning his 98th cap. On 30 minutes, Musa almost deceived the Iran goalkeeper with his free-kick that he directed goal wards. Haghighi recovered enough to divert the shot for a corner kick. Then in the 34th minute, Enyeama made a wonderful save off a header from Reza, echoing his performance at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. It was now end-to-end action but with two minutes of additional time, the game stagnated and referee Carlos Vera blew off the first half. Second Half The Eagles kicked off the second half and pressed for the advantage with Emenike on the prowl but he was blocked off on the edge of the box. And the first major talking point was Moses hauled off in the 51st minute for Shola Ameobi.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Halilhodzic: We approach Belgium with no fear


sds

Belgium are overwhelming favourites to kick-off Group H on a winning note, with Algeria the least capped side at the World Cup in Brazil.

Algeria, who boast 10 players with fewer than 10 international appearances in their 23-man squad, have a total of 364 caps – 28 fewer than the next fewest Australia (392).

Compare that to Belgium’s 749 and Marc Wilmot’s men are well equipped to perform on the big stage but Halilhodzic insisted his players will not to be intimidated by the World Cup dark horses in Belo Horizonte.

“My team is a very young team and looking for an opportunity to exploit,” Halilhodzic told reporters

“I don’t think that my players are under pressure because we have nothing to lose, but we can still gain something. This is in that state of mind that I prepared my team.

“When you play a World Cup you have to give 100 per cent because nothing is easy and you don’t want to have any regrets. That is why we are working hard every day.”

Halilhodzic added: “I think that we are going to play this game with daring. We have to try something new.

“Belgium are favourite but the favourites don’t win all the time. We have to give everything to make the most of our opportunities. You will see tomorrow if we can do it.”

Still, the 61-year-old is not taking Belgium lightly

“Belgium has a huge potential and are favourites in our group, but we have to take game after game. This is a big challenge for my team,” Halilhodzic said.

“We’ve talked a lot these last two days about Belgium. We watched many videos and we have analysed our opponent – every detail, because Belgium have a great team with very talented players.”

Appiah: Early goal was a disaster


sds

The USA scored in the first and 86th minutes to triumph at the Arena das Dunas, as Ghana missed out on points despite Andre Ayew’s equaliser with eight minutes remaining.

Clint Dempsey gave the USA the lead when he burst onto Jermaine Jones’ pass, cut inside John Boye and slotted home the opening goal after just 29 seconds, while the Americans claimed victory with John Brooks’ header in the closing stages after he got away from the same Ghanaian defender to power a corner into the net.

Appiah’s men dominated the Group G fixture at the FIFA World Cup with 456 passes to the Americans’ 276, while Ghana had 21 shots to eight but lacked the defensive composure to get a result.

“I think that early goal was a disaster, it was unfortunate,” Appiah said post-match.

“Loss of concentration cost us big time. All I can say is that it was a very tough game and when you play at this high level any little mistake can cost you dearly.

“We had a lot of the ball and created a lot of chances, but we didn’t make the most of our chances, but USA took theirs.”

Ghana have advanced from their groups at each of their previous World Cup appearances; reaching the round of 16 in Germany eight years ago and the quarter-finals in South Africa in 2010.

But having lost their opening game in Brazil, a round of 16 berth looks unlikely for Ghana, considering only 8.6 per cent of teams that have suffered defeat in their first group game over the past four tournaments have managed to advance.

Appiah was well aware of the enormity of his team’s challenge, as he looked ahead to fixtures against Germany and Portugal.

“It’s not going to be easy to qualify for the group but we’ll give everything to do just that,” the 53-year-old said.

“We’re going to have to play well against Germany and I know we’ll give them a good game.”

FIFA World Cup: Ghana 1 United States 2


sds

Supporters had barely found their seats for the Group G clash when USA captain Clint Dempsey found the back of the net after just 29 seconds at the Arena das Dunas.

But Ghana appeared to have earned a draw when Andre Ayew levelled proceedings eight minutes from time only for second-half substitute Brooks to head home the 86th-minute winner as the USA made a winning start in Group G.

The USA’s win – their first against Ghana in two previous attempts at the World Cup – was just the result Jurgen Klinsmann’s men needed following Portugal’s drubbing at the hands of Germany.

Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah rewarded Jordan Ayew with a place in the starting XI after the young striker came off the bench to score a hat-trick against South Korea last week, while star duo Kevin-Prince Boateng and Michael Essien were among the substitutes.

There were no surprises for the USA, with Jurgen Klinsmann naming the same team that beat Nigeria in their final pre-World Cup match almost a fortnight ago.

Fans in Brazil had been treated to a goal glut since the tournament kicked off last week and it was no different on Monday as Dempsey stunned Ghana inside the opening minute.

The Seattle Sounders forward drove inside the penalty area, gliding past Ghana defender John Boye before placing the ball in the bottom far right-hand corner – the fifth fastest goal in World Cup history.

Jozy Altidore almost doubled the USA’s advantage in the 19th minute after Fabian Johnson’s low cross found the towering striker inside the six-yard box, but his attempt on goal was blocked.

It proved to be Altidore’s last bit of action after the Sunderland player was stretchered off the pitch two minutes later with a potential World Cup-ending hamstring injury – a blow to Klinsmann, who controversially overlooked all-time leading scorer Landon Donovan for the showpiece event.

Altidore was replaced by former AZ Alkmaar team-mate Aron Johannsson.

Ghana did have chances to draw level before the break, not better than the opportunity on the stroke of half-time.

Christian Atsu found himself in space down the right flank and he squared the ball to Jordan Ayew but the 22-year-old completely fluffed his lines.

Asamoah Gyan – Ghana’s leading scorer during qualification with six goals – was also guilty of wasting a glorious chance 10 minutes into the second half after finding himself unmarked in the area, only to fire his header over the crossbar.

Boateng was introduced on the hour-mark and his substitution was an inspired one as Ghana started to dictate possession and tempo in search of an equaliser.

For all of Ghana’s possession, they could not find a way past goalkeeper Tim Howard, with the African nation lacking composure in the final third.

They were eventually rewarded for their sustained pressure in the 82nd minute courtesy of some lovely link-up play between Gyan and Andre Ayew.

A back-heel from Gyan inside the area paved the way for Andre Ayew to run in and slam the ball into the back of the net.

Ghana’s joy was short-lived, however, as defender Brooks rose highest to score from a corner with just four minutes of regulation time remaining.

Boko Haram Writes Chibok On Planned Attack


boko haram

Islamist sect Boko Haram has written to Chibok about an impending return to the town where over 200 girls were abducted by the sect on April 14.

The letter, which informed the people of the town to expect the terror group as soon as possible, it was learnt, has caused them to panic, with many already making moves to flee the town.

According to a local government official in Chibok who spoke to newsmen, when they took the letter to the police, they were assured of maximum protection, but complained of difficulty in fueling their vehicle.

He said the local government authority had however assured the security operatives that they were going to supply them enough fuel, noting that “whenever Boko Haram members tell you that they are coming, they never fail to come. Our fear now is that we don’t know when and how they are going to come; our people are in great fear.

“We are calling for prayers, as well as on government to provide adequate security in Chibok,” he said.

 

Ekiti: We Have Lost Confidence In INEC, Police – PDP


fe7a6-ayo-fayose

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ekiti State chapter, Monday said it has lost confidence in the ability of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct free, fair and credible election in the state.

The party also accused the police of not being fair to it since the beginning of the current political dispensation.

Addressing a press conference in Ado Ekiti Monday, a chieftain of the party and Minister- designate, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, said the Police and INEC have not been fair to the PDP in the preparation for the election.

The party’s flag bearer, Ayo Fayose also accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of bringing in thugs to the state ahead of the elections.

Governorship election in Ekiti State holds on June 21.

 

Boko Haram Has Worsened Northeast Backwardness in Education – UNICEF


boko haram 2

The United Nations International Children Education Fund (UNICEF) Monday raised an alarm that the Northeastern region of Nigeria which has always remained educationally backward may be further drawn back by the recent Boko Haram siege on the region.

UNICEF said recent indications show that the region which has been on top of the nation’s out of school table, had further moved down the holes and needs immediate intervention to get back on track.

Addressing the media at this Year’s Day of the African Child with theme: “A child friendly, quality, free and compulsory education for all children in Africa,” in Bauchi, the organisation’s Planning Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist, Dr. Danjuma Almustafa who stood in for Dr. Abdulai Kaikai, the Chief of Field Office, UNICEF Bauchi, said statistics showed that Nigeria has 10.5 million children out of school – the highest number in the world.

He lamented that almost one of three primary age children was out of school, and roughly one of four junior secondary age children was out of school.

Al Mustafa further decried that nearly 6.3 million, or 60 per cent, of the 10.5 million Nigerian children out of school children live in the northern part of the country.

“Even when enrolled, hundreds of children – especially girls – are not showing up for class. Although girls’ primary school attendance has generally been improving, this has not been the case for girls from the poorest households,” he said.

We’ll Bring Down Nigeria If Any Bomb Goes Off In The S/East – MASSOB Threatens


massob_leader[1]As reactions continue to trail the discovery of deadly Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) at the Living Faith Church aka Winners’ Chapel, in Owerri, the Imo State capital, the Movement for Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has warned terrorists to stay off the Southeast threatening to “bring down” Nigeria should any part of the zone be bombed.

Already, six suspects are being held in connection with the planting of the explosives in the church premises, even as the motive of the planned bombing and its masterminds remain unknown.

MASSOB leader Ralph Uwazuruike, who made the group’s position known on the matter, warned that they would no longer tolerate the mindless killing of Ndigbo in any part of the country.

According to him, the movement would “retaliate with equal and decisive force if terrorists attack any city in the zone”.

His words: “The position of MASSOB on this matter is firm. We will bring down Nigeria, if any bomb goes off in the Southeast. We can no longer tolerate the mindless killing of Ndigbo in any part of Nigeria because we will retaliate with equal force against any attack on any part of Igboland”.

The group also warned against what it described as the deliberate posting of military, police, Customs and Immigration officers of Igbo origin, to the Northeast to confront the Boko Haram insurgents while their northern counterparts were being posted to the Southeast for safety. However, MASSOB did not back up its claim with proofs.

MASSOB further claimed that such a measure was part of the grand plan of the pre-Nigerian civil war agenda to totally annihilate Igbo officers and men in the nation’s military by the powers that be.

It would be recalled that the police, acting on a tip-off, on Sunday in Owerri, uncovered the IEDs at the popular Pentecostal church’s auditorium and the car park.

The discovery prompted the police anti-bomb squad unit to lockdown the church premises and order worshippers to relocate to a safer place for Sunday service.

SAMUELSON IWUOHA : IMO BASED HUMAN RIGHT GROUPS ISSUE PRESS RELEASE


 

BEFORE HUMAN RIGHTS BECOME PERSONAL GIFTS IN IMO STATE:

THE CONSISTENT PATTERN OF HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE IN IMO STATE: THE CASE OF SAMUELSON IWUOHA.

ISSUED ON 16 JUNE, 2014 BY IMO STATE HUMAN RIGHTS AND CIVIL SOCIETY STAKEHOLDERS.

As we approach the 2015 general elections in Nigeria and as Human Rights Activists prepare to observe the observance of Human Rights by power holders and seekers, we, the undersigned, wish to draw the attention of Ndimo, Ndigbo, Nigerians and the international community to the clear and present danger of subtle intimidation, gagging and harassment of citizens through the violation of their basic rights and denial of justice.

We the entire Human Rights and Anti-Corruption Advocates in Imo state have received this worrisome signal through the way and manner in which allegations are levelled against Human Rights advocates as a strategy to psychologically weaken and humiliate them and to  silence others who may want to speak up against impunity for corruption and abuse by those in power.

A case in point is the one involving Citizen Samuelson Iwuoha, the immediate past Special Adviser to the Speaker of Imo state House of Assembly who has been held in police custody in Imo state since he was arrested on the 3rd of June 2014 over yet to be proven allegation of murder.

We received information that Citizen Samuelson Iwuoha was arrested and detained by the police alongside twenty one others, after someone was found dead along the street where he lives in Ikenegbu Layout area of Owerri, Imo state. We expected the Police to have charged Citizen Samuelson Iwuoha to court within the time duration mandated by the law. He is entitled under the law either to be freed on bail or charged to court rather than be held indefinitely. His rights to liberty and due process, including presumption of innocence are being flagrantly and recklessly trampled upon by the police and those who may be behind this saga.

The Human Rights Community in Imo state is shocked that after 13 days in unlawful detention, Citizen Samuelson Iwuoha, his wife, the house (who is a minor)  help to his elder brother and a bricklayer who was hired to work for them have been in detention while the rest have been released on administrative bail.

Till today, the Imo state police command has not given any reason as to why Citizen Samuelson Iwuoha, his wife, their bricklayer and their house help- a minor, cannot be either released on administrative bail or charged to court after the expiration of the stipulated maximum number of days the law permits the police to detain anyone accused of a crime under the law.

While Citizen Samuelson Iwuoha insists that the allegation against him, his arrest and detention are politically motivated, activists in Imo state are seeing it as a sign of impending clampdown on them because what happens to one affects all. The only way this fear can be assuaged is for the police to be guided strictly by the law in the discharge of their responsibility regarding the allegation against Citizen Samuelson Iwuoha.

We recall that during the ill-fated regime of Chief Ikedi Ohakim  in Imo state, Citizens Samuelson Iwuoha, was brutalised by the Governor’s security aides and finally flogged black and blue by the then Governor himself,  in his office. That was the height of direct Human Rights violation by a governor as well as the highest scandal of that time.

Citizen Samuelson Iwuoha was later, hurriedly charged with frivolous offences and remanded in Owerri Prisons for over one month before reprieve came his way via a court order.

As the then government of Ohakim was sent parking, and with a solemn promise by incumbent governor Rochas Okorocha during his inauguration that no innocent citizen in Imo will suffer unjustly, Human Rights activist and social critics were of high hopes that harassment and intimidation now belonged to the better forgotten past in the history of Imo state. Today, it appears that the monster of human rights abuse still leaves with us  in Imo state. While the current governor did not flog Citizen Samuelson Iwuoha or send his security agents to do so, as the chief security officer of the state, he is vicariously responsible for any violation of the right of any Imo citizen that he was elected to protect. This is why he should ensure that the police do the right thing and to act in accordance with the due process and rights of all concerned.

While Imo state activists cannot condone illegality or crime committed by any person, whether activist or non-activist, we believe that everybody must be treated as the law prescribes and every citizen’s rights guaranteed under the law must be respected.  The police and other law enforcement agencies must be prepared to accord to all  citizens their constitutionally guaranteed human rights as we are no longer under a repressive military regime.

We therefore make the following demands:

  • Citizens Samuelson Iwuoha and his family should be immediately released or charged to court if the police have credible evidence against him and his family.
  • All citizens who have been held in police detention for more than the legally permisible duration of not more than 48 hours at the most should also either be released or charged to court without further delay.
  • That the Imo state police command under Mr. Abdulmajid Ali should show good examples in conduct and performance if they have to win citizens’ confidence and support in the discharge of their constitutional duties including fighting crime. They must treat citizens as the law prescribes.
  • The Imo state police command should see activists as partners in progress and to encourage them to speak up against all forms of human rights violation as this is an important way of supporting the Police to protect the rights of citizens
  • The government of Imo state should ensure that the police in Imo state protect the right of every citizen, especially activists in the course of discharging their roles of crime detection, prevention and control.
  • The Imo state Police Command should strive to apply the global best practices in policing by obtaining sufficient evidence before arrests are made or fast-tracking investigation so that suspects are charged to court within reasonable time as prescribed by the law.
  • While we believe that the police should stay away from politics and act as guardians of the rule of law, they must demonstrate their impartiality through their conduct and the way they handle matters suspected to have political undertone.

It is the duty of the police to ensure that the rights of all are protected under any circumstance.

The library at the University of Liverpool waived a $7,600 fine for a 91-year-old man who returned a library book after 61 years.

Ron Webster checked out a copy of Structure and Function in Primitive Society in 1953 when he was working as a research assistant at the school’s social sciences department.

It wasn’t until recently that he realized he still had the book in his possession and returned it to the library.

“Ron had been warned very firmly by the friends he plays cards with at the local pub that he would be landed with an enormous fine, and feel the full force of the law,” said Webster’s son-in-law, Rick Walker, who took him on the trip to deliver the book. “They didn’t expect to see him again.”

University librarian Phil Sykes said the library staff were “amazed” about the return.

“They called me and said ‘you’ve got to come down. There’s a gentleman trying to return a book he took out in 1953. He’s 91-years-old!’ ” Sykes said. “When I came down they were sat with him having a cup of tea and a chat and I said: ‘I believe I’ve got a disciplinary issue to deal with’. We had about an hour talking about it.”

Sykes said he waived the fee of $7,634.48 “on the condition that Mr Webster agreed, henceforth, to live an exemplary life and return all his books on time.”

Men of the Imo State Police Command, Sunday arrested six suspected Boko Haram members inside the Winners Chapel Owerri, along Port Harcourt road, while planting bombs in the church premises.

According to an eye witness account, the security personnel attached to the church noticed strange movements within the church premises and monitored their movements.

The security men alerted the senior pastor of the church, Moses Oyedele who instructed them to alert the police which they did and the Police immediately rushed to the scene with soldiers and other security agents.

It was discovered that about six suicide bombers have taken over the church perpetrating their nefarious activities.

The source said that the police immediately cordoned off the church premises in search of the suspects leading to the arrest of the suspects.

It was discovered that the suspects had planted a bomb at the entrance gate of the church and had taken position round the premises of the church so as to plant more bombs.

The police anti-bomb squad which detonated the bombs, conducted a thorough check
round the premises so as to detect any hidden bomb within the premises.

When interrogated the suspects confessed to be suicide bombers who had stormed the state with the intention of bombing five churches within the state.

The church authority on getting the information in respect of the latest development alerted members of the congregation to relocate the service to the Heroes Square near Imo Concorde Hotel where they conducted their first service which was supposed to begin by 7am.

When contacted, the State Commissioner of Police, CP Adbulmajid Ali advised the citizens to be very vigilant now that the Boko Haram men have penetrated the State. He confirmed that the anti-bomb disposal Unit of the state police command has detonated bombs, adding that investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident was being carried out.

Speaking at the Adesoye College Offa, Aliyu stated he had been proactive in sacking Darul Salam sect where some Boko Haram leaders were once encamped, Niger Times reports.

He urged the governors to handle the security issues seriously.

He was quoted saying:

“We were proactive in managing Boko Haram insurgents from having a base in Niger state. Imagine having Boko Haram in the middle of Nigeria? A governor must at all times seek ways of protecting the lives and properties of people in his state.

“Security challenges therefore does not happen just like that, it takes the indulgence of some elites who are desperate in gaining political advantage. It is the thugs they engage that are causing the nation serious security challenge.”

The official also urged country leaders to exercise true democracy and, appealing to schools authorities he asked them to grow the Nigerians with chastity and teach them to be goal-oriented.

Presidency Strikes Back at Kwankwaso


President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday responded to the Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso’s allegation that the President wants to assassinate him.

The response which was conveyed through two ministers suspected to be acting on behalf of the President, criticized Kwankwaso in separate statements issued in Abuja by Labaran Maku, the Minister of Information as well as the Minister of Police Affairs, Abdul Jelili Adesiyan.

 The ministers described the governor as being desperate and paranoid; pointing out that his allegation against Jonathan was the peak of irresponsibility and an indication of a failed governor.

Maku, challenged the governor to explain to the people of Kano the role him and the All Progressives Congress played in the emergence of Sanusi Lamido Sanusi as the Emir of Kano, instead of dragging the President to it.

It would be recalled that Kwankwaso on Wednesday accused the President of being responsible for the conflicts that trialed the appointment of the new Emir, Sanusi. He also stated that the President should be held responsible for whatever happens to him, his family or the people of the state

According to the statement issued on behalf of the information minister by his Chief Press Secretary, Joseph Mutah, he said Kwankwaso was trying to smear the image of the president and the Federal Government.

“It is a known fact that the appointment of traditional rulers is within the purview of state governments and it is surprising why Kwankwaso has chosen to drag the name of the President into the succession crisis rocking the Kano Emirate.

“Instead of throwing tantrums and casting aspersions on imaginary enemies, Kwankwaso should face the people of Kano and explain to them the role he and APC leaders played in the imbroglio.

“The Police in Kano have offered explanations why officers and men were deployed to guard the palace of the emir, yet Governor Kwankwaso decided to further his unbridled campaign of blackmail against the President and the Federal Government.

“The recent outbursts of Kwankwaso have lent credence to observations in some quarters that the governor is now afraid of his own shadow as the people of Kano become increasingly impatient with his years of one-man rule under which he imposes his will on the state in total disregard to the wishes of the people” Maku said.

However, Kwankwaso, on his Twitter page on Wednesday, insisted that he followed the same procedure which Ibrahim Dankwambo, the Gombe State governor adopted in appointing the new Emir of Gombe, and questionedwhy the President should cause crisis in his state, as well as accused him of plotting an agenda which is not good for this country. He urged the Jonathan-led administration to focus its attention on the security challenges bedeviling the country and not him.

Maku went further to say that: “After the recent denial of freedom of choice for the people of Kano by imposing local government chairmen and councillors on them, he then took on the late Kano monarch shortly before his demise.

“Governor Kwankwaso, as is well known to the public, then went on a highly politicised selection process, turning the ascension to the throne of Kano into a partisan political enterprise during which prominent All Progressives Congress leaders and some governors moved to Kano reportedly to influence the outcome.

“The result is the outpouring of anger and protests in the ancient city of Kano with the unfortunate breakdown of law and order.

“Governor Kwankwaso is therefore singularly responsible for the violence in his state. The selection of successors to other traditional institutions in other parts of the North in recent years has not witnessed the kind of public anger and protests and violence that greeted the exercise conducted by Kwankwaso at the Government House in Kano.

“The police authorities in the light of the violent opposition to the highly political selection process for the new Emir of Kano only helped to restore law and order and to protect the historic palace of the throne of Kano from being razed or destroyed by aggrieved people of Kano.

“To turn round to blame President Jonathan or the Federal Government for the crisis is the height of delusion and irresponsibility on the part of Kwankwaso. He is the architect of the crisis and violence and if he has a conscience, he should examine his role in this unfortunate and needless crisis into which he has plunged the ancient city of Kano and its respected traditional institution in recent weeks.

“The latest claim by Kwankwaso is wild and outlandish and does not fit into the character of President Jonathan or the Federal Government of Nigeria.

“The Federal Government urged the people of Kano to remain peaceful and law-abiding, as well as shun violence “in spite of the highhandedness of Governor Kwankwaso and his associates” Maku said.

Similarly, Police Affairs Minister who also berated the governor, said it unfortunate that instead of Kwankwaso to be thankful for the efforts of the officers who maintained peace during the crisis, he was busy insulting the president.

In a statement issued by Adesiyan’s Chief Press Secretary, Wale Akinola, the minister stressed the need for Kwankwaso to be educated on the role of security agencies in the country.

“Police have the mandate to protect the lives and property of every citizen of Nigeria and Kano State cannot be an exception.

“When there is protest, the police should be able to protect people’s lives so that it will not lead to a major crisis and that was what the police did in Kano to stop youths who were dissatisfied with the appointment of Sanusi as the Emir of Kano.

“But instead of appreciating the efforts of security agents in bringing about peace in the state, Kwankwaso was abusing Mr. President.

“I think Kwankwaso needs to be educated on the role of police and other security agencies in the society as well as the functions of the President of Nigeria in order to give him an insight into their operational procedure” Adesiyan said.

The minister described the governor’s outburst against the President as an indication of a failed governor who acts against the will of the people.

“It is rather unfathomable that Kwankwaso could use the protest that followed the appointment of Sanusi as the Emir of Kano as an opportunity to insult the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria the way he likes.

“His recent outburst is an indication of a failed governor who acts against the will of the people.

“Have you ever seen the opposition party insulting the President of the United States of America, or the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, or Chancellor in Germany?

“It is only in Nigeria that those who lack patriotism like Kwankwaso can insult the President at will.

“Rather than reflect and ever remain grateful to PDP for giving him the platform to become a governor and a minister, Kwankwaso now has the audacity to abuse the President.

“While I recognise the inalienable right of citizens to hold opinions and identify with political platforms of their choice, I find it very difficult to understand the type of bitterness that has taken hold of an elected person like Governor Kwankwaso who hugely benefitted from the PDP on which platform he was twice elected governor in addition to being appointed minister.

“Kwankwaso has not only shown his aversion to the unity of the nation but also the agenda of his party, the APC, to attack well-meaning individuals and leaders as a means to cause confusion among Nigerians and destroy our oneness as a people” Adesiyan added.

When Kwankwaso was asked to respond to the ministers’ statement, he said he had no comments, while his media aide, Baba Dantiye, later said: “We have no more comments on this. We are busy with the convention.”
