Sanusi calls out Nigerian ministers in Washington for shunning meeting with investors.

images (1)

Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the emir of Kano, has expressed displeasure at the absence of government officials at a meeting with investors in Washington DC, Thecable reports.

Speaking to journalists on Saturday at an investment program organised by the Nigerian embassy, Sanusi said Nigeria might lose investors because of tardiness and lackadaisical attitude. .

Audu Ogbeh, Ogbonnaya Onu, Lai Mohammed, Babatunde Fashola, Ibe Kachikwu, Kemi Adeosun, and Kayode Fayemi, who all had sessions at the event, were absent. .

Godwin Emefiele, governor of the CBN, Yewande Sadiku, executive secretary of Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission, VP Yemi Osinbajo and the expected governors were also absent. .

“For the person sitting in London and who has a billion dollars to invest, hes got Nigeria, Ghana, Rwanda, Kenya, South Africa, you may be the biggest economy, but he may decide that rather than go through the hassle of investing $500m in nigeria, why not put $100m in Ghana, $100 in Rwanda, $100m in Cote d’Ivore, just to have diversification benefit and the benefit of reaching out,” he said. .

“We had a meeting today with investors, we were supposed to start by 9am we started at 10. When I came in they took me to the ambassador’s office to sit down, when investors were waiting down there. .

You invite top investors, your ministers are in Washington and they do not come to talk to the investors about Nigeria. That is not how you attract investors.”

Sometimes it is about how we market ourselves, how we package ourselves.
There is no reason why we should start one hour late, and there is no reason why the public address system should not work. .

Because at the end of the day, this is the first point of the country, he hasn’t even come to Nigeria so what will be his experience in Abuja and he is saying if I am having this experience in Washington, what will happen when I go to Abuja, when I go to Kano, how do I get to see the governor will it take me 10 hours?”

Falae visits Obasanjo, says Buhari has failed

punchnewspapers-1529072310951

Though he described Buhari as his friend, he faulted him on his reluctance to embrace restructuring having promised to do so during his campaign at the Adamasingba Stadium in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State in 2015.

The former presidential candidate of the Alliance for Democracy in the 1999 election advised Buhari to do a critical analysis of his administration and retraced his step from seeking re-election in 2019.

He said, “You know and I know that the present government has not done well. The primary responsibility of government is to protect the lives of its citizens. This government is not doing so. People continued to be killed and slaughtered every night and any government that cannot stop that has failed. “President Buhari is my friend. Once upon a time, you will recall that I raised his hand at the Adamasingba Stadium in Ibadan, asking people to vote for him because he said he would restructure Nigeria. So, it is not a personal matter.

Cardinal Onaiyekan: Age may not matter in 2019 poll .

instablog9ja-1528917950905

Yesterday, Cardinal Onaiyekan, the Catholic Archbishop of Abuja Diocese said that age may not matter as Pres. Buhari seeks a return to office next year.

He said what should be of importance to those seeking to rule should be their concern for others and service to the people in the name of God.

Although he said there was need to give room to younger people to rule, he expressed regret that from experience, the young people put in office had not performed.

While speaking at the post-humous launching of the autobiography of a former Foreign Affairs Minister Chief Mathew Mbu, he said those seeking re-election must give cogent reasons.

According to him: “At the end of the day, maybe it is not a matter of the age but a matter of your own mind, your intention, your love for doing the right thing, especially concern for others, politics and service to the people in the name of God.

If we start to take these things seriously, then probably, it would not matter whether we declare to seek reelection at 79 or whether we don’t. The important thing is: what do we want power for? Why do you want to seek re-election? .

We are waiting to see because we are told that we are going to see new things in the next year, I am looking forward. New things can come from old people, you know and people can change. People can have a change of heart. We are looking forward to that.”
Notwithstanding, Onaiyekan sought opportunity for younger people to be in power in the country.

President Buhari retraces steps as he praises Nigerian youths while in Morocco.

-1528780241547

from @muhammadubuhari – Nigeria’s strongest selling point remains an “intellectually aggressive and economically ambitious” populace that always seeks self-improvement and self-actualization in any part of the world, President Muhammadu Buhari said Monday in Rabat, Morocco.

In an audience with the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Morocco, Saadeddine Othmani, at the Royal Guest Palace, President Buhari said Nigeria’s “visionary and resilient population” works hard to always position the country for more growth, fuelled by a largely youthful group that continually wants to contribute to development. “Nigerians are intellectually aggressive and economically ambitious. I received some of our students here yesterday and I am really impressed with the zeal and fearlessness they exuded. “In Nigeria we have a very young and aggressive population and we are working very hard to create the enabling and inclusive environment for their contributions to be better appreciated,” the President told the Prime Minister.

President Buhari said his government is harnessing the human and material resources available in the country, especially in the educational and agricultural sectors, while seeking partnerships with countries that can explore the huge potentials in Nigeria.

The President noted that Nigeria was already on the verge of an agricultural revolution as the importation of rice had been cut down by 90 per cent in 18 months. “We need to do more to improve our statistics on food production and graciously, the weather has been auspicious in the last couple of years for agricultural growth. We are happy that through partnership with you and hard work the price of fertilizer is already down by 50 per cent,’’ he said.

On the three agreements signed during his visit, namely, Nigeria-Morocco Gas Pipeline project, vocational training in agriculture and building of a chemical plant in Nigeria, the President assured the Prime Minister that they will receive appropriate attention. “We have a huge gas reserve in Nigeria, and we should be known more for gas exploration than for crude oil. So, we are happy with the new partnership with Morocco,” he added.

Even morons won’t describe Buhari’s mediocre performance as superlative – Obasanjo .

instablog9ja-1525432132783

Battle of the Leaders and their Exs, have takena an open turn. On Wednesday, Ex president Olusegun Obasanjo declared that even morons would not describe the mediocre performance of President Buhari as superlative, after President Buhari asked God to judge all the leaders who have mismanaged the finance of Nigeria.

Ex president Obasanjo made the declaration after he desperately tried to distanced himself from a trending news on the social media which alleged that he has pledged support for the President despite the situation that are surrounding his leadership decisions.

He dissociated himself from the report in a statement by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, in Abeokuta, Ogun State. The statement read in part, “For the record, Obasanjo has not and cannot endorse failure. .

His position remains as stated in his January 23, 2018 statement on the state of the nation. Chief Obasanjo sympathises with the plight of the campaigners and supporters of Buhari. .

The mediocre performance of Buhari cannot be described by anybody as ‘superlative’ even by morons not the least President Obasanjo. From the Buhari/Trump meeting, Chief Obasanjo only saw through three points: .

One, the US will continue to reduce purchase of crude oil from Nigeria and there is nothing Nigeria under Buhari can do about it. .

Two, the US will export agricultural products to Nigeria and Buhari’s government will encourage that; and three, all the killings taking place in Nigeria by herdsmen are being done by expatriates trained by Gadaffi and no Nigerian is to blame and Buhari cannot do anything to stop it. .

For whatever the meeting was worth, President Buhari again bungled another opportunity to self-redeem. No wonder President Trump ordered him in a rather condescending manner to go back home and stop the killings going on in Nigeria!

We hope now that Buhari will heed Trump’s advice, which hopefully will be considered non-abusive. Therefore, Chief Obasanjo is more convinced in his statement of January 23 and will not change his position.”

My Opinion:

Someone is finally saying what is really happening. The reign of President Buhari is being judged by alot. But the killings which he promised would end, was only doubled In a different location. It is crazy, and we all see it.

$2.1bn ONSA Fraud: Dasuki Faces Fresh Charges — EFCC

officialefcc-1525288865327

The official instagram handles of each had released the latest on Dasukind. According to Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, #EFCC, has filed fresh charges against Col. Sambo Dasuki(retd), former National Security Adviser, who is alleged of criminal diversion of funds to the tune of $2.1billion.

The money was part of funds earmarked by the Federal Government to fight Boko Haram insurgency in the northeast.

According to Rotimi Jacobs, SAN, counsel to the EFCC, the charge was amended to remove the second defendant and also to bring up fresh charges against the other defendants. With the amendment, the initial counts of 19 preferred against the defendants have increased to 32.

Dasuki is facing trial alongside Attahiru Bafarawa, a former governor of Sokoto State; his son, Sagir Bafarawa; a former Director of Finance and Administration in the Office of the NSA, Shuaibu Salisu; a former Minister of State for Finance, Bashir Yuguda as well as Sagir’s firm, Dalhatu Investment.

Other defendants in the matter had frantically sought to be separately tried, to ensure speedy determination of their cases, but eventually lost the bid at the Supreme Court on March 2, 2018, which decision ordered accelerated hearing, instead.

Consequently, the trial court, presided over by Justice Hussein Baba-Yusuf of the Federal Capital Territory High Court, fixed April 13, for a pre-trial conference, in other to ensure effective management of the two separate charges against Dasuki and other defendants. .

At the resumed sitting today, Jacobs informed the court about the outcome of the conference and also told the court about the amended charge, urging the court to accept it. .

His words: “In line with your Lordship’s directive, we held the conference, except that the senior counsels for the defendants were not there. They sent their juniors to represent them.

“My Lord, their attitude is to oppose everything we seek to tender. We have served them the additional documents and we have also filed an amended charge dated and filed April 30, 2018.
. “I urge my Lord to accept the amended charge and allow it”. .

Okonjo-Iweala’s book reveals how a governor and others wrongly adviced Jonathan on subsidy.

OKONJO-IWEALA-3

Almost Four years later, cats are coming out of the bags no one knew existed. Ngozi Okonji Iweala, the Former Coordinating Minister of the Economy and Finance, is only now revealing how a former governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu and his counterparts ‘wrongly’ advised a liquor loving former President of the Country Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to announce the withdrawal of fuel subsidy on January 1, 2012. Recalling how much turmoil the incident caused across the Country, causing a dent in the name of past leader.

In a new book, ‘Fighting corruption is dangerous: The story behind the headlines’, Okonjo-Iweala recalled how the move was “ill timed and wrong.

She wrote, “There were some debates within the Economic Management Team as to whether fuel subsidies should be phased out in stages or in one fell swoop. The consensus was that experience in Nigeria had shown that even a small partial phase-out would draw the same large protests as a complete phase-out, so the feeling of the team was, ‘why die in stages?’ Perhaps, it was better to do all at once. There was overwhelming agreement that such an action would require a period of communication and education of the public, to build a larger consensus on the matter. To this end, an important televised public debate was organised in Lagos. The feedback from participants was that the public felt better educated about the benefits and drawbacks of the subsidy. It was clear that the audience felt that there was a lot of fraud in the system.

“The debate took place in early December 2011 and it was agreed that the remaining public debates would take place after the Christmas and the New Year holidays.

“There was a tentative understanding that January to March 2012 would be used for further debates and communication with the public with a tentative implementation of the subsidy phase-out in April 2102.

“On the morning of December 31, I received a shocking call from my friend and colleague, Professor Sylvester Monye, special adviser to the President on Performance Monitoring, telling me he had just heard something strange and was calling to check if I was aware of it. He had run into a senior official from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) who told him that the president was going to announce the phase-out of the fuel subsidy on January 1. I was taken aback. It made no sense in the light of the agreement we had reached to educate the public further before implementation.

“I tried all day December 31 and stayed up all night trying to get the president but I was told by ‘Control’ that he was unable to speak on the phone, even though he was always exceedingly generous in taking my calls.

“One of the most interesting questions in my mind was who had advised the president to make the premature announcement on January 1 about phasing out the subsidy? I wanted to know because I had become the scapegoat for the action.

“It was not until a meeting of the NEC, weeks later, when the issue was under discussion, that Babangida Aliyu, former governor of Niger State and then chair of the Northern Governors’ Forum, bravely acknowledged that it was the governors who had urged the president not to delay any longer but to announce the subsidy phase-out at the beginning of the year. The mystery was solved, but, I found it incredible that none of the governors came to the rescue when the policy roiled the nation and that they were content to let others take the blame.”

I guess it is just medicine after death.  What should we do with this information now? Oh I know. The next president from the South, should take every advice from these guys with a pinch of salt. These Southern guys are always gullible and easily manipulated.

NO PRESIDENT HAVE EVER HURT THE FEELINGS OF THE NIGERIAN YOUTHS LIKE BUHARI HAS.

abati1990-1524293261026

This is how a sick old imcompetent president boards a private jet out of his country to present the future of his land to the world. We don’t need you to retrace your heavily negative steps on our behalf, the youths of this Country are more than Capable to do that for ourselves. We have been doing it since we were born. Many even started almost 6 decades ago when the mistake of gaining independence happened to our nation. You are one of the reason why they say a black man is incapable of successfully leading his fellow blacks. Your son is a perfect example of your insignificant handiwork as a leader. Very Lazy, yet very rich. We are not your son Mr President, infact It is an insult to be compared to him. Nigerian youths are the most hardworking. But then again, how will you know that, when your triangular movement is home- work- London? You promote England even more than your village. You have not done anything for the youth since assuming office, and unfortunately for us, we can’t impeach you due to the corruption that is working on your behalf, but you claim to be fighting. You tell us to create jobs for ourselves after graduating through entrepreneurship with no money, like we are magicians, just so you can take the glory. Playing the oldest trick in the book. (If it is good it is your doing, but if it turns out bad, it is the fault of the youths). So please, could you leave us alone, instead of trying to make the situation worse than you met it? Whenever you speak from your own mind, it is always disastrous. Your wife can attest to that. We are highly offended by this trash talk. You couldn’t produce your secondary school result during election,  but you are there calling college graduates lazy? Buhari is the worst we have ever had so far. Donald Trump talks carelessly but smart, while you talk dumb. Even Donald Trump has not said something this vindictive about Nigeria.

Yours Disappointedly,
Hardworking Nigerian Youths.

2019 Election : Festus Keyamo now Buhari’s campaign spokesperson

image

The persistent current, and second term obsessed President Muhammadu Buhari has gone ahead to kick start his second term campaign, and even announced his political appointment, which sees the famously senior Nigerian lawyer as the head of communications and strategy for his presidential 2019 re-election intentions. According to Premiumtimes, the news of the appointment, was conveyed in an April 16 letter signed by Rotimi Amaechi, the minister of transport and director-general of the Buhari Campaign Organisation.

Mr Buhari announced last week Monday that he would seek reelection, shortly before departing for London, which is something that has become a norm for the health challenged President, and will continue to be, if he Wins the second term. Other than the invisible praise singing, many can not count the president’s achievement since assuming office.

According to Premium times, the news of the appointment came a day after Mr Buhari deceptively told British Prime Minister Theresa May, that he was more concerned about governance than the 2019 elections. How is this even classified in the realistic realm. Could it be that the president made up his mind while having a good night sleep, a day after talking to the prime minister? Questions that can’t be answered.

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, prominent for his rights activism, Mr Keyamo remains one of the most vocal voices backing the Buhari administration since 2015. Which is safe to say that boot licking has finally paid off for the

He is expected to make a formal statement about his appointment soon.

Christian leaders reject Buhari’s second term bid

Screen-Shot-2018-03-27-at-12.42.36-PM-e1522151395723

A religious group United Christian Leaders Eagle Eye Forum (UCLEEF) has rejected calls in some quarters especially from the Governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC), urging President Muhammadu Buhari to run for a second term.

The group through its National Chairman, Pastor Aminchi Habu, rejected the calls on Thursday during a press conference/inauguration of an Advisory Board for the group in Abuja.

Habu said the APC led-government has failed Nigerians going by its inability to solve the security challenges, youth unemployment issue, stabilize the economy and reduce poverty in the country.

According to him, it is time for northern leaders and their counterparts in the south to unite and present a formidable candidate that will take over from the present government.

“We are calling on prominent Nigerians like Gen. Yakubu Gowon (rtd), Gen. Ibrahim Babangida (rtd), Gen. Abdusalami Abubarkar (rtd), and Gen. Aliyu Gusau (rtd), to team up and work together towards presenting a formidable candidate who will be accepted by all Nigerians in the 2019 Presidential Election.

“Prof. Jerry Gana, Sen. Ibrahim Mantu, Gen. Theophilous Danjuma (rtd); Emir of Zazzua, Dr Shehu Idris; the Northern Elders Forum (NEF); the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF); leaders of Northern Youths Organizations and other prominent Nigerians are not left out in this call,” Habu said.

He urged the youths to actively participate in the political process by obtaining their PVCs so as to wrestle power from the “old brigade politicians” who have ran out of ideas.

He also urged the youths not to mortgage their future for the peanuts they get from the current political elite who have taken the country several steps backwards.

“Just like PDP failed Nigerians before the 2015 election, APC as a party has also failed Nigerians ahead of 2019 election.

“All we see within the ruling party is disunity, and the party is good at blaming PDP for their incompetence to bring solution to Nigeria’s problem.

“And it is also a shame that the party members are fighting themselves in almost all the states of the country.

“If they can’t coordinate themselves, then, how can they coordinate Nigeria; so, on this point, I am saying that PDP and APC have failed Nigeria and we can’t allow them to rule us again.

“In 2015, Nigerians where looking for a saviour to bring them out of hardship, and APC promised us a bright future under the change mantra if elected; the result is this present hardship,” Habu added.

                  My Opinion: 

I guess it is not just me that is seeing this people for what they truly are. When people are given the chance to prove themselves, they either do less than or more than expected. This people have done so much lower than expected, and I wonder why they assume that Nigerians have the zeal or love for them to return next year. This so not a live affair, this is a political issue.

But anyone who knows African politics, will know that they go into it with a do or die mindset. If the people don’t want a certain politician to rule any longer, they stand the chance of being threatened with blood shed, or war, like President Buhari did in 2015.

How do they call it democracy, and have only them make the decision for us all. APC and PDP have both been a joke. With confused members running back and forth to both parties and exposing each other. You have claimed to be  help to us, but shouldn’t we be the Ines to tell when you are helping us or not? You want so desperately to be loved that you exposed names of looters who are still enjoying stolen funds and not even bothered by the list. What word better classifies a Country like this? No remorse nor punishment for offenders, the poor are naturally the offenders of the rich, for their helplessness and uncomfortable state of living. They are at the receiving end of everyone. They are lied to and deceived by the politicians during their campaigns, they are bribed with tokens to do the bidding of these looters, who send their kids abroad, and have the children of the poor, fight their battle.

President Buhari has never been a man to stand by his words. Not even the Boko Haram sects, we all thought would be the only thing he would succeed in.  So far, nothing has been done by this man to prove his worth, only taking long breaks in London, with undisclosed reasons. He is a sick man. But just like his Northern Successors, he wants to die on that seat. That has been the tradition for Northern leaders for decades now. He never leave, and we simply watched them rule till they drop. Ruling and islamism is the obsession of the North. So dear Christian groups, if he forces himself back on that seat in 2019, then don’t push it. Let him do it, and make his successor proud as he goes down the same line of eternity. A sick president will do better resting without the stress of the Country on his shoulders. But that is not what you tell a Northern president, because they don’t like to step down and let a Southern Man rule.
