Another Northerner to be Appointed Director of NFIU

Another northern appointment- President Buhari has again sought the approval of the senate for the appointment of Modibbo Tukur, to head the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit as a director. This means a northerner heads the EFCC and a northerner if approved will head the Nigeria Financial Intelligent Unit. Yesterday, a northerner, Abubakar Mohammed Adamu was appointed the Inspector General of Police (IGP). 

Presidential election is around the corner, but the president does not seem to care about what Nigerians think about the incessant nepotism in his administration.

Former President Obasanjo getting “Atikulated”.

His statement on Atiku’s candidacy:

1. “I am convinced that if you continue with the attitude that brought you here with these distinguished leaders of goodwill, with remorse and contrite heart, the rest of the coast within and outside the country can be cleared. And if there is anything I can do and you want me to do in that respect, I will do.”

2. “​For me, relatively and of all the aspirants in the PDP, you have the widest and greatest exposure, experience, outreach and possibly the best machinery and preparation for seeing the tough and likely dirty campaign ahead through.”

3. “From what I personally know of you, you have capacity to perform better than the incumbent. You surely understand the economy better; you have business experience, which can make your administration business-friendly and boost the economy and provide jobs.”

4. “​You have better outreach nationally and internationally and that can translate to better management of foreign affairs. You are more accessible and less inflexible and more open to all parts of the country in many ways. As Pastor Bakare, one-time running mate of the incumbent President said, ‘You are a wazobia man.'”

5. “​As you know, along the road to where you are today, many leaders and ordinary people cooperated and overtly and covertly worked hard. On your behalf, I thank them all.”

6. “when you become Nigerian President which, insha-Allah, you will be, remember what we did together in government – we ran an administration by Nigerians for all Nigerians where merit and performance count more than blood relationship, friendship or kith and kin.”

(President Olusegun Obasanjo, Abeokuta, 11th Oct. 2018)

Ben Murray-Bruce Withdraws From Senatorial Race

Senator Ben Murray-Bruce representing  Bayelsa East Senatorial district withdraws from senatorial race, citing discovery of rotational agreement. The senator announced his withdrawal from the race on his social media handle. He thanked his constituent for the opportunity to serve and offered to continue to give his support. The letter is below:

Letter of withdrawal from the Bayelsa East Senatorial Race

I thank God and the good people of Brass, Bayelsa East Senatorial District who offered me the golden opportunity four years ago to represent them and the state in the Senate, Nigeria’s highest lawmaking chamber.

It is without doubt that I have tried to discharge my duties as a legislator and representative of my people creditably to the best of my ability so far.

My voice has been very loud on the issues that matter to our people and our country at all time.

My support to our party, my people and state government is unquestionable. I am humbled that the national leadership of my party supported by the State chapter in appreciation of my efforts offered to support my reelection to the senate to continue my service.

I have also intensified consultations in the last couple of week in the course of which I have come to realize an existing local rotational arrangement of over 20 years beginning with the late Great Chief Melford Okilo, by which arrangement the Senatorial seat rotates per local government area among the three councils for four years in the Senatorial District.

Even with the support of my party at the National and state levels with the full backing of my state government and leadership, as a man of honour interested in the well being of my people, I hereby announce my withdrawal from the Senatorial race.

I do not want whatever reason to appear to have used my privileged
position and influence to do anything that other than the well-being and the stability and the good of the people.

I am in all of these for the people, not for my self.

Once again, I thank the former President, Dr. Goodluck Ebelo Jonathan, the National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, my colleagues in the Senate and Governor of Bayelsa State, the Honourable Henry Seriake Dickson for their support and encouragement.

I also thank the leadership of my Senatorial District and state, for for being there for me.

I thank Specially the people of my constituency for their trust and confidence in me to serve and represent them in the Senate.
By trusting me with this mandate, I have come to know them and our people even better, an experience I will never forget for the rest of my life.

I am indeed grateful to My darling wife, my children, other members of my family for their support and prayers. I appreciate the efforts of my hardworking campaign staff for their support and dedication.

Again, I thank the leadership of the party for their continuing support. I also assured the party of my availability and readiness to serve at any capacity when the opportunity comes.

Best Regards

Senator Ben Murray Bruce.

 

 

Osinbajo’s Visits Anambra Flood Victims: Is This Election Year Gimmick?

Election Year Gimmick Alert! 

Election year is here and Nigerian politicians are running helter-skelter playing games because that’s exactly what they know how to do best. The VP Prof Yemi Osinbajo recently visited Anambra and Delta State to supposedly sympathize with flood victims. Where was Buhari’s administration when other flooding happened previous years during his leadership? Where was Buhari’s administration when herdsmen were killing defenseless residents? Don’t be deceived, get your PVC’s and send a clear message. No more recycling the looters who have held the country hostage for decades. Enough is enough, vote them out. 

Nigeria Airport VS Ghana Airport

Airport Comparison Alert!
Nigeria airport VS Ghana Airport!

Nigerians admiring Ghana airport. Are they country shaming or stating the obvious? How long are we going to continue to recycle our politicians while they keep looting. Use your PVC’s to send a clear message.

Yusuf Magaji Bichi Appointed DSS Boss

The trending news is that President Buhari has appointed a northerner, Yusuf Magaji Bichi as the new Director-General of the Department of State Service, DSS. Nigerians are screaming another northerner? The security operatives are now almost headed exclusively by Nigerians of northern region.

The point is that the President cares less about diplomacy. He will do what he wishes to do and your reactions matter less, period. Love him or hate him, that’s who he is. You want a change? Send a clear message with your PVC’s but until then, let’s continue to recycle them…
