Sheriff blames Shettima and US for abduction of Chibok girls

A former Governor of Borno State and ousted National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ali Modu-Sheriff, has exposed the Governor and senators responsible for the abduction of the missing Chibok Girls.

Ali Modu-Sheriff in a statement released in Abuja, by his Special Adviser on Media, Adams Kolo, accused his successor, Kassim Shettima, and some serving senators of being boss to the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents, and the keeper of Chibok girls.

He vowed to expose those behind the chibok girls scam that they only used the chibok girls scam to remove PDP and Goodluck Jonathan from power. He said the united states and Barak Obama Adminstration played a vital roles in the shameful act

Fellow Nigerians, It's Time To Kick Out General Buhari And Reclaim Nigeria


President Muhammadu Buhari

Fellow Nigerians, it is no longer in the realm of speculation that our reticent general would seek a second term in office. It is not just his infamous body language speaking volumes about his intention, his actions and utterances lately give us a clear picture of his desire for a second term. His supporters under the umbrella of the Buhari Support Organisation have already launched Buhari’s 2019 bid. His foot soldiers have commenced nocturnal meetings to sell to the public what they know in their heart of hearts is a bad product. Although this has provoked incredulity and anger among many Nigerians, it is not enough however. Our discomfiture must be backed by unwavering action.

This is therefore a clarion call to all those who truly wish Nigeria’s progress, especially the youth who refused to learn from history and threw their weight behind a man they share nothing in common with, to rise up and oppose any attempt by President Muhammadu Buhari to seek re…

Okorocha Approves 18 Days Christmas Holiday for Imo Workers

Imo workers will have reasons to rejoice this Christmas as they have been given enough time to recuperate from the rigors of hard work by the Governor.

The Imo state Governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, has directed that the civil servants in the state vacate for the Christmas holiday on Friday, December 22, 2017. They are to resume on Monday, January 8, 2018.

A press statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, workers on essential duties were exempted from this development.

The release also said that government gives workers in the state reasonable time every Christmas to enable them celebrate with their loved ones.

He said, “Government has paid salary to workers in the state up to December to enable them also enjoy the Christmas. This is to wish them a blissful yuletide.”

Nigeria: Boko Haram - 26 Customs Officers Killed in Attacks

Maiduguri — The Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) on Wednesday lamented that 26 of its personnel have been lost to Boko Haram insurgency.

Addressing the press, the Comptroller of the Service in Borno and Yobe States, Mr. Joshua Angbalaga, said that the insurgency in the North-east has seriously affected the activities of Customs in discharging its duty effectively.

He said that this has also adversely affected the revenue of the Command as only one of the 13 economic borders is functioning optimally with another one running skeletal service.

According to him, the border at Gaidam in Yobe State is functional while the other in Gamboru, Borno is functioning skeletally.

Angbalaga said unless the Nigerian military finally crushes the Boko Haram insurgency to free Borno State particularly, the 13 economic borders across Borno and Yobe States would remain closed.

WHERE IS BUHARI’S WAEC CERTIFICATE?

As President Muhammadu Buhari celebrates  his 75th Birthday (so  he claims), we ask on behalf of Nigerians, where is his Original WAEC CERTIFICATE?

This  is the minimum  requirement  to contest for that office. It is corruption  if he does not have it.

During the leadership of President Goodluck Jonathan, Buhari claimed that Jonathan forced the Nigerian Army to hide his WAEC CERTIFICATE.  After 30months in office, we demand to see the original of that CERTIFICATE as issued by WAEC.

It is not enough for Buhari to display an Agbada-shopped statement of result concocted several decades after  he purportedly left Secondary school.

The APC through their medium, Sahara Reporters discusses the Birthday of Performing  Governor Wike. But they remain cowards when the WAEC CERTIFICATE of the non performing APC President is raised.

The question remains: Where is Buhari’s WAEC CERTIFICATE?

Was Buhari legally qualified to contest the 2015 Presidential election? Was that not monumental corruption?

Seven Reasons Why I Think Nigeria Should Have Abstained From The Jerusalem Vote by Aliya mow no

Nigeria ignored the body language of the United States of America & went ahead to vote in favour of the United Nations General Assembly resolution ES‑10/L.22, an emergency session resolution declaring the status of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as “null and void.” There were 21 absentees & 35 abstentions. For several reasons, I believe Nigeria should have abstained:

1-SECULAR COUNTRY: Nigeria is a country where everything is seen via the lens of religion even if it makes no sense. Most Nigerians do not really understand what is going on in the Middle East, many cannot even locate Israel or Palestine on a map but due to religious sentiments, Nigerians have taken sides. At a time when the hijab issue is raging & with the president already seen by some as an Islamist, the resolution would have been the best opportunity to reaffirm Nigeria’s secular status & reduce the tension at home. Now, half of Nigeria support the president on the move & the other half are like ‘…

'The Spanish State Has Been Defeated.' Pro-Independence Parties Sweep Catalan Election

Axed Catalan president Carles Puigdemont, flanked by former Catalan Health minister Antoni Comin (L) and former Catalan Minister of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Food Meritxell Serret (R), reacts after the results of the regional elections in Catalonia at the Square - Brussels Meeting Centre in Brussels on December 21, 2017. Catalan separatists won a crucial snap poll on December 22, 2017, plunging their region into further uncertainty after a failed independence bid rattled Europe and triggered Spain's worst political crisis in decades.

BARCELONA, Spain — Catalonia’s secessionist parties won enough votes Thursday to regain a slim majority in the regional parliament and give new momentum to their political struggle for independence from Spain.

It was hardly an emphatic victory, however, as the separatists lost support compared to the previous vote in 2015, and a pro-unity party for the first time became Catalonia’s biggest single force in parliament.

The anti-independence…

2019: Jonathan’s Kinsmen Mobilise Support for Dickson, PDP

The race for the 2019 governorship race may have begun in earnest in Bayelsa with the people of Ogbia Local Government, where ex-President Goodluck Jonathan hails from, declaring their support for Governor Seriake Dickson and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday.

Several politicians from the area wednesday converged on Yenagoa to review the performance of the party in the last election and thereafter set up a reconciliation committee led by Fred Ogbua, to facilitate the return of those that defected from the party in the heat of the 2015 poll.

Present during the ceremony were former and serving commissioners, state House of Assembly members, Special Advisers, ex-local government chiefs as well as party ward chairmen and other party loyalists.

During Thursday’s event which came under the banner of the PDP restoration caucus in Ogbia, led by Chief George Okirinya, the party said that though it won in the local council in the last governorship election, it had started noticing s…

INNOSON: GTB in trouble as Nigerians rally against bank

The reported saga between the Guarantee Trust Bank (GTB) and the chairman/managing director of Innoson Motors, Dr. Innocent Chukwuma is rubbing off negatively on the bank.

Chukwuma was recently arrested by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission at his Enugu home, and taken to Abuja.

The commission claimed it stormed his residence to arrest him as he had refused to honour previous invitations extended to him, a claim which the company said was not true.

Many Nigerians who felt the industrialist was unduly victimize have taken to social media handles calling on Nigerians to either close their accounts with the bank, or withdraw their monies from it.

Already the campaign to punish GTB has taken an ethnic coloration, as many have opined that Innoson was treated in such manner because of the part of the country he hails from.

While there are claims by many that they have closed their accounts with the bank, others say they have transferred their funds in it to other ba…

Spain watches as divided Catalans vote in polarized election

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Voters in Catalonia faced a momentous choice in elections Thursday for their regional parliament: either support political parties that are determined to keep up the pressure to turn their region into Europe's newest country, or opt for those that want it to stay as part of Spain.

The pivotal election is aimed at breaking the bitter deadlock over the issue of secession. But neither side is likely to win a clear majority in the new regional parliament, setting up the scenario of long and challenging negotiations to form a new Catalan government.

Opinion polls have shown fugitive and jailed separatist candidates neck-and-neck in opinion polls with unionists, who claim to be in the best position to return Catalonia to stability and growth.

But with a record turnout expected, the outcome could hinge on the more than one-fifth who are undecided among Catalonia's 5.5 million eligible voters.

The nearly 2,700 polling stations will remain open until 8 p.m. (19…
