Boko Haram Kills Not Less Than 30 Fulani Herdsmen In Borno

Not less than 30 ethnic Fulani herdsman were killed by Boko Haram militants in northern Nigerian last weekend when they raided the village of Alau in Borno state. “One of the herdsmen escaped and confirmed to us that he is the only survivor,” Amadu Kusuri, the northeast coordinator of the Fulani Miyetti Allah Association, said Thursday.
The Islamist insurgents also kidnapped women and children and stole livestock in the attack on April 24 , Babangida Ali, the brother of one of those killed in Alau, said by phone.
While Nigeria says it’s making progress in the battle against Boko Haram, which has waged a violent seven-year campaign to impose its version of Islamic law on Africa’s most populous nation, the group continues to carry out massacres in remote areas and suicide bombings in towns and cities.

Prof Wole Soyinka Spits Fire, Blasts Buhari's Silence And Inaction Over Herdsmen Kill Of Igbo In Enugu State And Other Parts Of The Country!

“I have yet to hear this government articulate a firm policy of non-tolerance for the serial massacres that have become the nation’s identification stamp,” said Mr. Soyinka. “I have not heard an order given that any cattle herders caught with sophisticated firearms be instantly disarmed, arrested, placed on trial, and his cattle confiscated. The nation is treated to an eighteen-month optimistic plan which, to make matters worse, smacks of abject appeasement and encouragement of violence on innocents.


I repeat, and of course I only ask to be corrected if wrong: I have yet to encounter a terse, rigorous, soldierly and uncompromising language from this leadership, one that threatens a response to this unconscionable blood-letting that would make even Boko Haram repudiate its founding clerics.”
Suspected Fulani herdsmen on Monday unleashed terror on Ukpabi Nimbo, a community in Enugu State, killing dozens of people.


The attack came weeks after a similar wave of violence by herdsmen in Ag…

Dr Okonjo-Iweala: A Leader Worth Emulating - Uzoma Ngozi

The direction of Nigeria’s socio-political environment saddens my heart. Politicians from all sides have decided to adopt a destructive political system that is inimical to the progress of the country. Hardly can one identify in our political system a genuine technocrat.
Among the so-called politicians, it is very difficult to identify those genuinely interested in Nigeria. Everyone seems concerned in what comes to their pocket at the expense of the citizen. This is the reason when people with genuine intentions are identified, they should be celebrated and not crucified.
Although, celebrating them has become a challenge in the country because destructive criticism, partisan politics and godfatherism are major challenges that have made it difficult for the dissemination of real facts about these set of people.
One woman that has been destructively criticised in the system is Dr Ngozi Okonjo Iweala. This courageous woman of substance, who stands for the right values has been criticised by…

See What Buhari Has Done To Nigeria; Nigeria Moves From One Of The Fastest Growing Economies In The World To The 15th Fastest Growing Economies In Africa For 2016.

Having enjoyed blissful growth over the past decade, Nigeria was one of the fastest growing economies in the world, but it is not one of the 15 fastest growing economies in Africa for 2016.
In 2014 and early 2015, Nigeria was named the third fastest growing economy in the world by CNNMoney, with China and Qatar, taking the lead at 7.3 percent, 7.1 percent gross domestic product (GDP) growth.
Following the 2015 election uncertainty, crash in crude oil price, and prolonged revelation of policy direction by the newly-inaugurated Muhammadu Buhari-led government, Nigeria’s GDP for 2015 crashed to 2.8 percent. For 2016, however, the coast is cloudy, and Nigeria is nowhere near the fastest growing economies in Africa.
According to the International Monetary Funds (IMF) World Economic Outlook for 2016, as revised in April, the fastest growing economy in Africa for 2016 is Cote d’Ivoire and the slowest is Chad, which is expected to record negative growth.
Cote d’Ivoire is expected to experience an…

Senate President Dr Saraki Demands For An End To Herdsmen Attack And Violence In The Country

Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has called for an end to the incessant herdsmen attack in some part of the country. Dr Saraki made the call today while speaking at the Senate Plenary session. He urged the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, to fast-track the execution of the report  of the Senate Public Hearing aimed at addressing the herdsmen crisis.
Immediately after plenary, Saraki took to his official social media pages on Twitter and Facebook to update Nigerians on the development, saying that:“It is important that the violence attributed to herdsmen is addressed and curbed to ensure the safety, well-being and unity of the people and the country.”
Many will recall that in recent weeks, there have been attacks on communities by individuals said to be Fulani herdsmen. With violence occurring in Ibadan in the South-Western State of Oyo, Enugu in the South-East, and Agatu, Benue State in the North-Central, violence between herdsmen and communities is becoming more prevalent

Buhari Ordered Release Of 10,000 Tons Of Grains From The National Strategic Grain Reserves To Help Alleviate Hardship In The Land, Appeals To Nigerians To Be Patient While He Works Out The Needed Changes To Arouse The Economy!

Mallam Garba Shehu appealed to Nigerians to be patient with President Buhariover the economic hardship facing the entire country, adding that the change he promised will be achieved asap.
The statement in full; The Presidency firmly rejects the insinuations that poverty and lack are products of the Change mantra. This should be dismissed as an erroneous and misplaced opposition criticism. The President understands the pain and the cries of the citizens of this country and he is spending sleepless nights over how he can make life better for everyone.
Contrary to assertions by a faction of the opposition Conference of Nigerian Political Parties, CNPP, the President’s energy and focus are on changing the lives of Nigerians, with aview to making it better than he met it.
“Change is a process. Change does not happen overnight. Change can be inconvenient. Change sometimes comes with pain. Over the past year, the government has been working night and day to deliver on its promise of change to Ni…

A Public Response To President Buhari's Reflections ‘Why Did I Became Nigeria's President At This Perilous Times’ By Ena Ofugara – Edited By Okoro Benedict Chinedum

The greatest Jihad is the one over self - Prophet Mohammed
This essay is timely especially at a time that President Buhari seem to have made his reflections public about his ascendancy to the office of the President. Why am I Nigeria's President now? Others ruled when oil sold for 146 dollars per barrel. Mr President Sir, when life gives a Fulani man soup, he does not complain that he has no cassava to make garri or akpu. Rather, he makes tuwo of rice and helps himself with the soup. 
Mr President sir, on your assumption of office, I wrote an article immediately that you started too early with complaints. At the time, you were full of lamentation about the empty treasury. It was like a man who deceived another man's wife to abandon her matrimonial home but turns around to tell her that he has no money to take care of her. 
If you knew that you cannot manage the country without oil selling for $146 dollar per barrel, why did you keep contesting? Why did you not leave Atiku or Tamb…

Presidency Goes After Emergency Billionaires, Stella Oduah, Others. Vows To Make Present And Former Public Office Holders Account For Their Sudden Wealth

Present and former public office holders will henceforth be made to account for their wealth, Vice President Yemi Osibajo (SAN), has said. He stated this at a town hall meeting convened by the United Action for Change, UAC in Lagos today Saturday April 23rd.
Osinbajo who fielded questions from various labour and professional organisations as well as individuals at the meeting held at the Ikeja Airport Hotel, said "the era of people becoming emergency billionaires is gone" and would no longer be tolerated by the Buhari-led administration.
“Anybody who cant explain his wealth must be brought to account. Everyone who has served in public office must account for what they own. This is the change we want Nigerians to support”, he declared, adding that the dream of the Buhari government is to have a “country where integrity is our national culture.”
The VP assured that the policies of the government are not tainted by any hidden agenda, stressing that at the end of their tenure, Buha…

Kim Kardashian actually did go through a lot on her road to stardom. I stumbled onto this throwback story that Kim was sometime in the past walked off the stage by Prince whose death was announced a couple of days ago. 
The Kardashians are constantly in the news for the most obscene reasons. From how they manage to walk in heels all day long to posting naked selfies,they’re the American family that has attracted global attention.
With the recent tragedy of Prince’s death, the internet has been slathered with tributes in his honour. These will always remind us of what an inspiration he was while making us feel sad at the same time. There is one video however, that’s gaining much more popularity than the rest. Here is the video;

Dad Chops Off Hands Of A Teenage Boy Who Was Caught Raping His Seven-Months Old Daughter!

According to metro.co.uk, a dad is on the run from police after he reportedly chopped off the hands of his daughter's rapist. Dad took matters into his own hands after his wife allegedly caught a teenage boy raping his baby daughter. The 17-year-old was accused of molesting the seven-month-old baby in 2014 after his wife allegedly caught him in the act.
He was arrested and was sent to a juvenile remedial home as he awaited trial. But just before his court hearing on April 19, the girl’s father, who is 25, claimed he was going to forgive the teen and accept an out of court settlement. He even offered to drive the boy home to the village where they both live in Kotli Ablu.
But halfway through the trip, the father stopped the bike and attacked the teenager, tying him to a tree before chopping off his hands with a machete. He then reportedly climbed back on the bike and fled the scene, leaving the teen critically injured on the side of the road.
He was taken to hospital after villagers f…

Saraki's Trial At The Code Of Conduct Tribunal Could Come Back To Hunt Tinubu!

There is every likelihood that the trial of the senate president, Bukola Saraki at the code of conduct tribunal could come back to hunt Alhaji Bola Tinubu, the reported brain behind Saraki's ordeal.  You would recall Senator Saraki approached a federal high court to stop his trial before the CCT citing the acquittal of Bola Tinubu by the same court for the same offence and on the same technical grounds of arraignment by the CCB and EFCC joint investigators.
The federal high Court rightfully threw out saraki's motion and pronounced that Tinubu's acquittal was an error by the CCT tribunal hearing his case. What this means is that Tinubu's acquittal no longer stands and as such he can be re-arraigned for the same offence all over again.
''The possibility of Tinubu facing similar fate like saraki in the near future is thus inevitable. I foresee either Buhari using the same CCT trial to check Tinubu when they inevitably fall out or a scenario when this govt is kicked o…
