Suspended National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Timi Frank, has told President Muhammadu Buhari that Nigerians may end up in regret and despair for voting him into office.

Frank said this in an open letter he addressed to the President.

In the letter, the former mouth piece of the ruling party said the president must do more in obeying the rule of law and stop attacking those he sees as opposition to his administration.

Part of Frank’s letter entitled, ‘June 12 and the Burden of good governance’, reads, “Mr President, having been a lone voice in criticizing the activities of your administration, despite being a member of the APC, many will wonder what the true intent of this Open Letter may convey, but be rest assured sir, that only those who mean well for this country will speak up when wrong is being painted as right.

“The CHANGE mantra upon which this administration was voted into power massively by Nigerians, irrespective of ethnic, religious and social affiliations, is fast eroding away and I’m afraid, sir, that if nothing is done to Right the Wrong, then the Hopes and Aspirations which had ushered in a brighter tomorrow will end up in Regret and Despair.

“That I have decided to speak up against the current ills in the system attest to the fact that, it is only when people speak up that True Change will eventually occur. The resilience and belief in the June 12 Struggle attest to the fact that those who fought for democracy in Nigeria believed in the truest meaning of democracy in all its ramifications.

“A country where the RULE OF LAW, FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ASSOCIATION, UPHOLDING THE RIGHTS OF EVERY CITIZEN AND ABOVE ALL RESPECT FOR FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHTS was and is the very pillar upon which Chief MKO ABIOLA and several others paid the ultimate price with their lives.

“Anything short of this will amount to MILITOCRACY or DICTATORSHIP as it were. The lack of adherence to these social rights, I must admit, are very prevalent in this administration and seems to be growing larger by the day.

“These ills are reminiscent of and a sad reminder of the Junta days, with many regretting their actions of voting the APC into power. It will be pertinent, Mr. President sir, to proceed on a personal fact finding mission to the Nigerian streets, irrespective of bias, to find out the true reflections and opinions of Nigerians toward your administration.”

The Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Shehu Sani has said that he and other aggrieved members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, will quit the party if the identified challenges were not resolved.

The Senator spoke to journalists, who paid him Sallah homage in Kaduna yesterday, adding that he will be contesting the governorship of the state, unless the Kaduna political stakeholders, which he is a member, decided otherwise.

Sani said, “We condemned the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the past for not being fair and just to its members, but the APC has found itself in similar, if not worst situation, as at today.”

Sani said himself and other party members “will not tolerate or condone injustices”, noting that, “if solutions to the identified challenges in the APC are not taken care of in the coming weeks, there will be no going back on their decision to leave the party for good.”

He added, “There is a Kaduna political stakeholders, made up of former governors, lawmakers and various party chieftains, and, as a team player, I am a member. I am going to contest the governor of Kaduna State, but, if the stakeholders insist on me going back to the senate, I will have no objection, whatsoever.

“Nigerians are now more resolved and conscious to vote for people of integrity who will work for them, hence, I have the confidence of winning my election in whatever party I contest, because people will vote individuals based on merit, and not party, in the 2019 general elections.

“As it is today, over 25 registered political parties have come to us to express solidarity and support, and I can confirm to you that opposition from Kaduna State will come under an alliance of forces in the coming elections.

“I want to make it clear that should I contest and become the governor of Kaduna State, I will open the government house to the masses.”

Founder of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has been sentenced to one month in prison by a High Court in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
The court order, which was served to the police last Thursday, signed by J.C. Okoro Esq. and dated June 6, 2018, indicates that Uwazuruike will be in prison custody for one month for contempt of court
Founder of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has been sentenced to one month in prison by a High Court in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
The court order, which was served to the police last Thursday, signed by J.C. Okoro Esq. and dated June 6, 2018, indicates that Uwazuruike will be in prison custody for one month for contempt of court.
News Telegraph reported that upon reading through the Motion On Notice filed on July 6, 2017, praying for an order of court to commit the plaintiff in the substantive suit, Uwazuruike, to prison for disobeying the order of court made on Wednesday, April 2, 2014 and after due consideration of the unchallenged oral evidence of the 1st defendant, Chigozie Iheama and exhibits tendered in the contempt proceedings, the presiding judge, Justice Kemakolam Ojiako, ruled that:
“The plaintiff, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, is hereby found guilty of contempt to the said order of court made on April 2, 2014.
“That the plaintiff, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, is hereby sentenced to prison custody and shall be so detained for a period of one month from the date of his commitment to prison.”
Uwazuruike, his agents and proxies have also been restrained from entering into the said land subject matter until the suit is determined. This judgement is coming after Uwazuruike dragged Iheama to court in 2013 over a land transaction issue in suit No. HOW/265/2013. According to Iheama, from 2013 to 2017 that the case was on, Uwazuruike had refused to appear in court in a matter he is the plaintiff.
However before the matter was transferred to the present court, the former judge, Justice Florence Duruoha Igwe, was hearing contempt proceedings against Uwazuruike for defying the orders of court for parties to maintain status quo and commencing building on the disputed land. Iheama alleged that plots by the MASSOB leader to frustrate justice, did not stop when the matter was transferred to the court of Justice Kemakolam Ojiako.
“Consequent order of the court to seal the property by chaining and padlocking the gates was subverted by Uwazuruike who instead removed the gate and sealed up the area with a block wall, making it impossible for court officials to enforce the order,” he said.
On his own part, Uwazuruike had, however, argued that he was not under obligation to be in court as the case was a civil matter. But Iheama differed, saying that the case at hand was the contempt proceedings and not the substantive suit.
While Justice Ojiako noted in his ruling that “the substantive proceeding is adjourned to the July 10, 2018, to await the outcome of the Motion for Stay of proceedings,” counsel to the MASSOB leader, Emma Chukwuka, said that hearing on the appealed suit comes up on October 2, 2018.

By Ata Ikiddeh.

A statement from the United States Government caught my attention this morning, I didn’t miss its emphasis and language, the statement said in reference to 2019 elections in Nigeria , “we are focusing on how to do a peaceful transition and a democratic transition for Nigeria”. I thought the language was unusual.

Previous governments of the United States, Obama’s for example would say, “ we want to see free and fair elections in Nigeria”. Study the language closely, it is clear the Trump administration has transition at the heart of the 2019 elections. And what does transition mean, “the process of changing from one state or condition to another”. That’s the simple brutal truth.

I have no doubt the United States Government has regime change on its mind. The Security, Economy and Corruption in Nigeria has been bothering the US. The US is not listening to the propaganda coming from Lai Mohammed’s table, it is listening to the international community and its partners. And this is what the International Community is saying, according to IMF Nigeria has become poorer under Buhari. Transparency International says, Nigeria has become more corrupt under Buhari. According to CNN the kidnap of the Dapachi girls was a national disgrace. Security has become worst under Buhari.

Simply put, Nigeria’s dilapidated state has become a destabilising factor in the West African sub region and that is a major concern for the United States Government. With Boko Haram rejuvenated and armed Fulani Herdsmen terrorising and slaughtering whole communities, Nigeria has become a potential hot bed for the recruitment and the launch pad for terror across the world. Under Buhari’s government Nigeria has become a direct security threat to the interest of the United States on the African continent. Another 4 years of Buhari from 2019 to 2023 might prove to expensive and too risky , it’s little wonder therefore, why the US government has refused to handover warplanes to the Nigerian Government after they have been paid for and bought, the US has no confidence in Buhari and wants to hand the weapons over to a new government in 2019. And the only way the US can check Nigeria’s growing security threat is by way of a peaceful transitional democratic process, with the support of an impoverished electorate who are in the majority, who can’t wait to see Buhari’s back.

Before Buhari’s supporters jump on me I will advise them to look up the word ‘transition’ , except they want to give it a different meaning, It means to, ‘change, move, changeover, shift, switch”. Need I say more.

The White man has a way of speaking which the black man has not fully mastered. A White man states the obvious in such a way that he hopes you’ll understand what he’s talking about but if you choose to give it a different interpretation - he will also agree with you, but still execute his plans, shrugging his shoulders when it’s all done and dusted he’ll say to you, “ I thought you got the message...”

In 2015 Buhari was the United States favourite and choice, in fact one can say it was the dread of the United States that compelled Jonathan to concede quickly without a legal contest. However under Buhari’s government according to the United States Congress - Nigeria has become the most dangerous place to live as a Christian. And while the congressmen will not be supporting any particular candidate - it is obvious who they will not be supporting. Fact sheet - a Christian in present day war torn Syria is much safer than a Christian in Nigeria. Why should they support Buhari?

If I was Buhari I wouldn’t look for an English teacher to help me look up the different meanings of the word ‘Transition’, I will get the message use style and give my Party some fangled excuse and refuse to stand for elections . At the end of the day the choice is in Buhari’s hands.

But Trump has said it loud and clear, 2019 is the year of TRANSITION no longer Change.

Get your PVC’s ready! Let us see how Kano will award Buhari 10 million votes in 2019 - now that we know the United States will be watching!

The department said over two decades ago, the number of countries in Africa with really democratically elected government were really very few – only three or four.

It said, however, now we had over two dozen African countries with democratically elected governments and which are hopefully not going to have transitions in government through coup d’etats and other illegal methods.

“As we look at the 20 elections, obviously Nigeria, though it’s not this year – it’s going to be next year – that really is a major priority focus, because that’s going to be the third most populous country in the world by 2050.

“It has really very complex political issues and ethnic and tribal issues and security issues,

“And that’s an area that we really are focusing on how to do a peaceful transition, a democratic transition, but more important is how to hold governments accountable to the people,” the state department said.

Nigeria’s Super Eagles fumbled to a 2-0 defeat to Croatia in their first match at the FIFA 2018 World Cup going on in Russia, failing to salvage Africa’s pride.

Three African sides, Egypt, Morocco and Nigeria have so far lost their opening games at the ongoing tournament, but the Nigerian team appeared worst among the three, conceding two goals and failing to take the match to the Croatians.

Croatia opened scoring on 32 minutes through an own goal by Nigeria’s Oghenekaro Etebo.

Moments after Ante Rebic’s deflected strike went out for a corner, Croatia grabbed the opener courtesy of the unfortunate Etebo, who has joined Stoke City, just relegated to English division side.

A corner from the right was swung in. It was nodded on towards Mario Mandzukic, whose header, which appeared to be going wide, came off some part of Etebo’s body and went into the net.

Croatia added the second goal on 71 minutes through a penalty by Lucas Modric a careless foul on Mandzukic.

The Real Madrid man avoided a ‘Messi’ and slotted the ball to the right of Francis Uzoho, who went the other way.

Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo had the first shot on target in this match in the 59th minute – the longest wait for a first attempt on target in a World Cup match so far this tournament.

The levels of noise among the Nigeria fans rises again as both Kelechi Iheanacho and Victor Moses sees efforts blocked later in the game.

The Croatian side dominated possession all through the duration of the match as the Nigerian side allowed too much space for the Modric-led side to operate.

Elder statesman, Alhaji Tanko Yakasai has given reasons some members of the National Assembly will backpedal in the reported plan to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to him, some of the lawmakers will need the help of the party and the support of their governors and the President in their bid to return for another term and so would not want to involve themselves in the impeachment processes.

Yakassai also spoke of the trial of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, alleging that Buhari is aware of the actions of the police and is using the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Ibrahim Idris to trouble the Senate.

Speaking on the alarm raised by a former President Olusegun Obasanjo that President Buhari is trying to harm him, Yakassai told Sun that Obasanjo may go through the same trial as Saraki.

He said, “If the police can go and arrest a senator and put him in their wagon, isn’t that enough indication that a lot can come thereafter. Now, the Senate President is placed in a situation where he has been implicated by some suspects who are under pressure from the police.

On the impeachment threat by the legislature, Yakasai said, “Minority would have their say, but the majority would have their way. What is the position of the majority in the National Assembly? It’s what we should see.

“Everybody must not think alike, but then we have to look at the position of the majority. The joint meeting of the National Assembly has given us an idea of where the pendulum is tilting towards in the coming days.

“The problem with the National Assembly in this regard is this…the president, by Obasanjo’s declaration, is the leader of the party. And the governors in their respective states are the leaders of the party.

“Now, we are approaching the primaries of the parties where some of the members would like to be endorsed. So, I will not be surprised if some of them who are looking for support from either the president or the governors are unwilling to partake in any move to check some of these things.

Of Obasanjo and the allegation of pending harassment by the Buhari government, Yakasai said, “If his alarm was before the Senate President’s episode, I would have held some reservation regarding it. But you remember that the Senate President on the floor of the Senate indicated that armed robbers arrested in Kwara State were being transferred to Abuja.

“He also alerted the Senate that he learnt from the governor of Kwara that they were being forced to implicate him. And a few days afterwards, the Senate President was invited by the police and the police said that it was in connection with the armed robbery incident.

“Ordinarily, I doubt that a man in the person of the Senate President, with amount of privileges and resources at his disposal long even becoming the Senate president and also taking into consideration also the resources he must have inherited from his father, the reputation of his family and his own reputation as a former governor, that he would allow himself to get involved in armed robbery.

“In addition, you would recall that the Inspector General of Police had recently said that the Senate president did not like him. I read it in the papers.

“I am aware that Obasanjo is openly opposed to the second term of Buhari and some of the government functionaries, particularly those who are connected to the next election – the police, the security operatives, INEC – have blind loyalty to the person of President Buhari.

“I would not be surprised, therefore, if the alarm raised by Obasanjo becomes true. I now tend to believe him rather than disbelieve him in the light of what has just happened to the Senate President.”
