He is a good example of rotten school of law in Nigeria and the law certificate they spread everywhere. A lawyer distorting the constitution. Nigeria and it’s products are terrible
@Zailani Bukhari Baz –
I like Wike honestly, A person of his character should be Nigerian President.
The in action of the current leadership is largely responsible for all the nonsense happening in this country.
@Emeka Abraham Idenyi –
He has no right to do so. This is against their fundamental human right. Freedom of association and its chargeable offence.
@Muhammad Sabiu Jibril –
I see nothing to be happy about, we have lost the sense of reasoning,we lack clear sense of patriotism, we are more after regionalist than nationalist.
When something bad happened to the north the southerners are happy about it and when something of that nature happened to the south the northern are happy about it instead of thinking the way out of these atrocities that happening in Nigeria.
If you said you’re not a Nigerian just take your agitation to any level but respect other people’s lives and properties.
When time came for the actualisation of your dreams none can be a stumbling block to stop it.
But as for now we are all Nigerians. We should learn to live in peace and tolerated each other.

T.B Joshua’s Successor Revealed By SCOAN Elders

Published

F

ollowing the demise of the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, TB Joshua, the elders in council of the church have decided to select a successor.

Okanga Trumpeters gathered that SCOAN elders who had a crucial meeting stated that the church had no secession plan but someone has to carry the mantle of leading the church.

“Someone must take charge immediately and give spiritual direction on the mode of service continuity. So much spiritual and financial efforts went into building SCOAN and it cannot just waste away,’’ a top aide said.

“None of the pastors were trained to succeed him. I would have known if any exists. For now, the wife has taken charge.’’

The elders of SCOAN decided that since nobody was trained by the late prophet to succeed him, that his wife, Evelyn will take over as the leader of the mega church.

Evelyn, the wife of late TB Joshua, and also a senior pastor in SCOAN, confirmed the funeral arrangements when she received Lagos state governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

“Since they said the reason was spiritual, the family agreed with them,” a church source said

Presidency Defends Pantami, Claims Minister Was Young When Supported Terrorism

Published

A

s many individuals and groups insist on the resignation of the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Pantami, over his pro-Taliban links, the Presidency on Thursday said he will not be sacked.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, in a statement said Pantami’s ordeal in the hands of those calling for his sacking was not about his past utterances but about his current job as a minister.

The Presidency aligned itself with the submission of the embattled minister that he was young when he made those statements and that his position had since changed.

In videos from the 2000s, Pantami, who is a known Islamic scholar, had said that while he was against the extremist anti-western ideologies of Boko Haram, he supported some of what Al-Qaeda and Taliban had preached.

 

The statement read, “Today, there is an unfortunate fashion in public discourse that makes leaders in politics, religion, and civil society liable in the present for every statement they have ever made in the past – no matter how long ago, and even after they have later rejected them.

“This insidious phenomenon seeks to cancel the careers of others on the basis of a thing they have said, regardless of when they said it. The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami is, currently, subject to a ‘cancel campaign’ instigated by those who seek his removal. They do not really care what he may or may not have said some 20 years ago: that is merely the instrument they are using to attempt to ‘cancel’ him. But they will profit should he be stopped from making decisions that improve the lives of everyday Nigerians.

“The Minister has, rightly, apologised for what he said in the early 2000s. The views were absolutely unacceptable then, and would be equally unacceptable today, were he to repeat them. But he will not repeat them – for he has publicly and permanently condemned his earlier utterances as wrong.

“In the 2000s, the Minister was a man in his twenties; next year he will be 50. Time has passed, and people and their opinions – often rightly – change. But all discerning Nigerians know this manufactured dispute is nothing to do with the Minister’s prior words, but solely concern his actions in the present.

 

“This administration is committed to improving the lives of all Nigerians – and that includes ensuring they are not over-charged or under-protected for those services on which modern life depends.

“The Minister has been leading the charge against illegal data deductions and pricing; he has revolutionised the government’s virtual public engagement to respond to COVID-19 and save taxpayers’ money; he has established ICT start-up centres to boost youth entrepreneurship and create jobs; he has changed policy to ensure locally produced ICT content is used by ministries, starting with his own; and he has deregistered some 9.2 million SIMs – ending the ability for criminals and terrorists to flagrantly use mobile networks undetected. In two short years, Minister Pantami has driven the contribution of the ICT sector to the GDP to more than 18 percent, making it one of the top two playing a critical role in the emergence of the economy from the COVID 19-induced recession.

“In putting people first, the Minister and this administration have made enemies. There are those in the opposition who see success and want it halted by any means. And there is now well-reported information that alleges newspaper editors rebuffed an attempt to financially induce them to run a smear campaign against the minister by some ICT companies, many of which do indeed stand to lose financially through lower prices and greater consumer protections.

“The government is now investigating the veracity behind these claims of attempted inducement, and – should they be found to hold credence – police and judicial action must be expected. The Administration stands behind Minister Pantami and all Nigerian citizens to ensure they receive fair treatment, fair prices, and fair protection in ICT services.”

Stop Acting Like Pharaoh, Let Biafra And Oduduwa Go Now – Pastor Tells Buhari

Published

S

enior Pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, Adewale Giwa, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to listen to the cries of Nigerians and allow them to go in peace.

Giwa, in a statement to DAILY POST on Saturday, specifically warned president Buhari to stop acting like the biblical King Pharaoh who refused to let the Israelites go until God dealt with him.

According to the cleric, keeping Nigerians together by force and continue to mistreat them will lead to failure within a short period of time.

 

 

On Oduduwa Republic’s agitation, Giwa urged Yoruba leaders to swing into action and draft out a solid constitution for the region.

“Very quickly, the leaders of Yoruba should come together and give us a solid constitution that will make Oduduwa Republic one of the best nations in the world.

“In doing this, religious leaders must be carried along too. This is what God has designed and there is no man that can change it.

“President Buhari should listen to the cries of Nigerians and allow them to go in peace. You can’t continue to keep the people together while mistreating them.

“Since 2015, you have been watching your people killing, raping and kidnapping other ethnic groups but failed woefully to control them.

“What kind of a president are you when you cannot provide adequate security and jobs for Nigerians? Under your watch, over forty percent of people continue to live in poverty.

“Under your leadership, a bag of Cement is being sold for N3,500. What happens to rice, beans and Gari?

“How much is a litre of petrol? Do you know how many people who are dying of hunger on a daily basis in Nigeria?

“I am sure no one would have survived this if Buhari’s predecessors had ruled Nigeria the same way the All Progressives Congress is ruling.

“President Buhari has led Nigeria astray, and it’s high time he allowed people to make their decisions. A sane person would have quickly called for a referendum to let people make their best choices and decisions.

“President Buhari should stop acting like king Pharaoh; listen to the cries of the oppressed and free Nigerians from poverty, economic hardship and insecurity.

“Twitter has left Nigeria for Ghana, Germany is also backing the establishment of African Centre for Global Health and Pandemic Prevention in Ghana. So, tell me what is left in Nigeria?

“It’s a signal that Nigeria doesn’t exist anymore. Bad governance and insecurity have discouraged foreign investors to establish their businesses in Nigeria.”
