A MUST READ! How Aso Rock Cabal Blocked V P Osinbajo From Swearing-in New Ministers

A cabal loyal to Nigeria’s ailing President Muhammadu Buhari has prevented Acting President Yemi Osinbajo from swearing-in the two ministers who were recently confirmed by the Senate, thetrentonline.com reports

Two weeks after their confirmation by the Senate, the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, again on Wednesday, May 17, 2017 did not inaugurate the two ministers at the commencement of the weekly federal cabinet meeting. On May 3, 2017, the Nigerian Senate confirmed the new ministers, Stephen Ocheni (Kogi) and Suleiman Hassan (Gombe).

The slots of Kogi and Gombe States in the federal cabinet had been vacant following the death of Mr. James Ocholi (SAN), the minister of state for labour, in an accident on March 6, 2016; and the appointment of erstwhile environment minister Ms. Amina Mohammed, as the deputy secretary-general of the United Nations.

Nigerians had awaited news of the administration of oath of office on the new ministers by Acting President Osinbajo, but for the second week in a row, Osinbajo would not swear-in the ministers.

Sources in the know said that  Osinbajo “would dare not swear-in the ministers after receiving threats from the pro-Buhari cabal who see that singular act as an executive overstep by the vice president  whose actual position is considered to be a “mere national coordinator , instead of an acting president.

“It’s a serious issue. The cabal in Aso Rock has prevented Osinbajo from carrying out his full role as Acting President. This is the second time in two weeks that he would fail to perform that executive role in the swearing-in of the new ministers. This is a role reserved for a sitting President or Acting President but Osinbajo has been warned to refrain from swearing-in the ministers as it would amount to usurping the powers of his boss President Buhari”,  according to  source in the presidency.

Recall that news had filtered into the Nigerian media last week about how Osinbajos’ security detail was unceremoniously changed a few days before the president left for an indefinite medical leave to London. According to sources all the Yorubas guarding the vice president were replaced with Northerners.

With Buhari’s worsening health and his exit from the country to an indefinite sick leave, observers say the situation in Aso Rock has assumed a worrisome dimension with intense politicking gradually taking over the affairs of real governance.

Virgin Atlantic Airways Exits Nigerian Market, Sacks All Nigerian Cabin Crew, Close Down Call Centre

According to news reports, Virgin Atlantic Airways has laid off all their Nigerian cabin crew. They were only given three weeks notice and no severance package regardless of length of service will be paid. The air-hostesses they sacked were about 20 in number. The company closed down their Nigerian call centre last year and let go of all the Nigerian staffers. The Owner, you would recall had said sometime in 2012, he was weary of doing business in Nigeria. Here is an extract from a statement Richard Branson issued in 2012 after the ill-fated footsteps he took by setting up a new airline in conjunction with the Nigerian government; “We fought daily battle against government agents who wanted to daily make fortune from us, politicians who saw the government 49% as a meal to seek for all kinds of favour…watchdogs (regulatory body) that didn’t know what to do and persistently asking for bribes at any point…Nigeria people are generally nice but the politicians are very insane…that may …

The Semen-Drinking Sambian Tribe Of Papua New Guinea!

To become a man in this primitive Sambian tribe in Papua New Guinea, boys are removed from the presence of all females at the age of seven, living with other males for ten years. The idea here is to convince everyone in the village that he can live without women.The isolation they encounter not only prevent the boys from having any sexual activities with women, but also from seducing, or being seduced by married women. During the ten years, the skin is pierced to remove any contamination brought upon by women. For the same reason, a sharp stick is inserted into the child’s nostrils until he bleeds profusely. They also regularly incur vomiting caused by consuming large amounts of sugarcane.
Older men now tell the boys that the bachelors (warriors) are going to copulate with them orally in order to make them grow. Throughout the six stages of the tribe’s rite of passage, the boy will perform fellatio (blowjob) to these warriors to, ironically, prove he is a real man. Because shoving manh…

Donald Trump Blasts President Buhari, Says His Priority Is The Full Introduction Of Islam, The Annihilation Of His Political Opponents And Absolute Extermination Of The People Of The Old Eastern Nigeria.

I Trust the US Republican presidential hopeful for being blunt! He said; ''no sensible president continuously travels round the globe while his country is in terrible hardship and economic mess.''
He continued; ''It can only happen in Nigeria where all that matters to the President is the full introduction of Islam, annihilation of his political opponents and absolute extermination of the people of the old Eastern Nigeria
Buhari, prior to his questionable victory at the polls as the President of Nigeria made lots of promises which he has obviously failed to keep and in most cases denied.
As a matter of fact, change could either be ‘positive’ OR ‘negative. To the earlier misconception of Nigerians and current state of the economy as a result of initiation of impracticable economic policies, it wouldn’t be wrong to assert that what president Muhammadu Buhari and his All Progressives Congress promised Nigerians was a NEGATIVE CHANGE.
If Nigeria is a country made up of…
