Cultural dance serenade Pres. Buhari as he returns to #Nigeria🇳🇬 from #London


The President of the federal republic of Nigeria received a warm welcome (not sure why), after he spent some time in London, United Kingdom. Coming back to his country and getting a warm welcome is something we (by We, I mean me) will appreciate at one time or the other. Why can’t I get a musical group dance from various Nigerian cultures welcome me back to work when I make it back to work after my annual leave.

After the President was accused of belittling the office of the Vice president who was suppose to take officer affairs whole he was aware, but instead a document was taken to him all the way in London to be signed while on his private visit, while the VP was left without a responsibility.

This week, a video surfaced, showing an angry group of Nigerians in London protesting the President’s unimpressive visit to London while the country was left in no one’s care. With everything left in a horrible condition, the group of Nigerian protesters asked him to go back home and fix the country like he promised during his campaign. And now he is back in Nigeria with these cultural groups welcoming him home. 🙄

Buhari’s nephew, Mamman Daura, an inspiration to youths – Presidency


Since I have been tagged expressive and straightforward, I have decided to stop insinuating things, so I will ask in all sincerity: if as a Nigerian youth the President’s nephew known as Malam Mamman Daura has been inspirational, then please I will like to hear from you, Because I love me a good prove. This request is known to be made due to the fact that a certain post was made by punchnews.

The Presidency has said President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew, Malam Mamman Daura, is an inspiration to Nigerian youths.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said this in a series of tweets while congratulating Daura who clocked 80 years on Saturday.
Shehu tweeted, “Best wishes to Malam Mamman Daura, true son of Nigeria and the inspiration of millions of youth on his.

How can an 80 year old man who hasn’t been know for the longest time but now, be the inspiration to youths. You do realise that youths are not from 50 years right? Which means he had been inspirational to grandfathers and mothers. How the President’s nephew is way older than Buhari, is still a mystery to me.

24m #Nigerians will be lifted out of #poverty by 2030 — Gov and FG


The beauty of growing up in Nigeria is thag you will end up having no believe or faith in a leader, even when you learn not to say it. The politicians in Nigeria have a very beautiful way of keeping you busy analyzing irrelevant things while they take out time to do justice to the National fund. No body cares if you find out and how you react when you do. Just as Nigerians are constantly trying to adjust to one new development or the other, these leaders are not at all turning down their completely unrealiable promises to the nigeraj from one decade to the other.

According to punchnews, The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) and the Federal Government have commenced a Human Capital Development (HCD) plan towards moving 24 million Nigerians out of poverty before 2030.
The NGF disclosed this in a statement by its Head of Media and Public Affairs, Mr Abdulrazaque Bello-Barkindo, on Friday in Abuja.
Bello-Barkindo said that the plan was jointly embarked on by the forum and the Office of the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.

Out of over 200million Nigerians, the federal government following in the footsteps of his predecessors, is giving a promise of 10 years to over 200milliom people to lift only 24million of them out of poverty. Mind you, this 200 million will keep growing for the next 11 years so they will be more than 200 million by then.

Let’s reduce governance cost by having one senator per state – #Okorocha


Sen. RochasOkorocha has said that the Senate must begin to make sacrifice and aid in cutting down the cost of governance by having just one Senatorial representative instead of three per state.

He said, “We must begin to make sacrifice and cut down our cost of governance by having just one (1) Senatorial representative instead of three (3) per state. We should fund the productive sector of our economy.

Here, we have three senators per state. In that National Assembly (House of Representatives) over there, we have 360 eligible human beings. This country must begin to make sacrifices and cut down the cost of governance.

I do not know what we are doing differently today in the 9th Senate from what we did in the 8th Senate and what we did in the 7th Senate, 6th Senate and so forth and so on. .

And if what we are doing today is similar to what we did in the 8th Senate be rest assured the product will be the same.”

Nigerians watch with dropped jaws as DSS malhandles Sowore after Court Session


The Federal Government on Monday arraigned the convener of #RevolutionNow protest, Mr Omoyele Sowore, and his co-defendant, Olawale Bakare, on seven counts of treasonable felony, cybercrimes and money laundering.


They both pleaded not guilty to the charges read to them when the operatives of the Department of State Services produced them before Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday.


The judge subsequently ordered them to be remanded in DSS custody till Friday when their bail application would be heard.


Before their arraignment on Monday, Justice Ojukwu dismissed the defence lawyers’ objection against the commencement of trial.


Defence lawyer, Adeyinka Olumide-Fusika (SAN), holding the brief of Mr Femi Falana (SAN), who was said to be abroad, had urged the judge not to grant the prosecution team the indulgence to arraign the defendants in the face of DSS’ continued disobedience of a court order which directed Sowore’s release from custody since September 24.


He also argued that since September 20, when the charges were filed, the DSS had not allowed the defendants to consult with their lawyers.


In her ruling, Justice Ojukwu dismissed the objection, holding that since the defendants had been served with the charges, it was immaterial whether they had met with their lawyers or not.

President Buhari wishes Nigeria a happy 59th independence #happyindependence #nigeria


The president of the federal republic of Nigeria is wishing the country a happy 59th independence day as Nigeria turns 59 years old.. Despite illegally holding   Sowore his opposition  presidential candidate at the 2019 presidential election. President Buhari is going on and on about the fight of corruption in everything that he is saying because that according to Nigerians is all he is familiar with. He was once a soldier and all he could learn from it was the way of discipline which many are saying that he is administering with bias. Punishing those who have stolen from the country should Mena every single one who has stolen, not only those people who are not your friends or party people.

If as a president fighting corruption is all you can do, then do it well. Now the prwsidnrt is not know for anything no longer, because he is not fighting the corrupt people, he is not developing the country, he is not giving up things, he is not doing anything. Atleast Donald Trump is fixing up the USA.

#USA: Pile of Dirty Linen floods the #whitehouse per usual


Reposted from @coveringpotus  – The Post is reporting that Joseph Maguire, the acting Director of National Intelligence, threatened to resign over concerns that the White House might attempt to force him to stonewall Congress when he testifies Thursday regarding an explosive whistleblower complaint about the president. The Post cited current and former U.S. officials familiar with the matter. The revelation reflects the extraordinary tensions between the White House and the nation’s highest-ranking intelligence official over a matter that has triggered impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Maguire, who was thrust into the top intelligence post last month, warned the White House that he was not willing to withhold information from Congress, officials said.

Reposted from @sussexroyal More images from Heritage Day in Bo Kaap.

As part of their visit, Their Royal Highnesses visited the Auwal Mosque – the first and oldest Mosque in South Africa.

Standing as a symbol of the freedom of former slaves to worship, the Mosque hosts events with Muslim, Christian and Jewish young leaders, and encourages friendship and understanding between South Africa’s varied communities.


The Duke and Duchess also got to view the first known manuscript of the Qu’ran in Africa, drafted by Tuan Guru from memory, whilst he was imprisoned on Robben Island.


Heritage Day celebrated the great diversity of cultures, beliefs and traditions that make up the rainbow nation.


Bo Kaap streets filled with colour and music while Their Royal Highnesses were welcomed to one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods in Cape Town.


The area has seen inter-community tension rise over the last few years, yet days like today show how faith, traditions, food and music bring people together, and celebrate the things that unite each and every one of us.

After the standard of public schools ahvw been lowered to a level so low is is called ground zero, Governor of Kaduna State is seen trying to lead by example after governance in Nigeria means making quick money and sending off all your kids to live, school and work in a forest world country, while stealing all the public money there is to fund this. Governor El-Rufai who has been talking about the fallen standard of education in Nigeria, is now supposedly putting his own son in a public school. We don’t know if he is mocking the standard, or even sending a message to governemnt or even not caring about it any longer. My question here is, how does he still have a 7 year old? So this man  was able to get someone pregnant in 2012 at his age? Weldone sharp shooter. Now he is the sending the child to a public school? Moving on.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad operates from his chambers instead of designated office —- PUNCHNEWS


Reposted from @punchnewspapers – The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, has been operating from his chambers instead of his designated office since January 2019 when he became the acting CJN, SUNDAY PUNCH can confirm.
He continues to operate from ‘Chambers 1’, his old office as a justice of the Supreme Court, despite his swearing in by President Muhammadu Buhari as the substantive CJN on July 24.

As posted by punchnews
Our correspondent visited the CJN’s wing at the sprawling Supreme Court complex in Abuja on Thursday, and found out the place had been deserted since Justice Muhammad assumed office as the acting CJN on January 25, 2019.
President Buhari swore in Justice Muhammad as the acting CJN on the same day he controversially suspended the immediate-past CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, based on an ex parte order of the Code of Conduct Tribunal that has been discredited by the Court of Appeal.
The police on January 28, 2019, the first work day after Onnoghen’s suspension, sealed off the CJN’s office and other adjoining ones, ejecting administrative staff.

#lazylootingnationSA : Nigerians attack South African Establishments in reaction to the killings of fellow Compatriot in SA #xenophobia


When you know people are going through the very same thing you are Goign through if not worse, and yet you make them your problem, then be ready to see their other side. Violence is not perculiar to only one side. Nigerians have seen too much in their own country and that has caused them to dispers.

We are not one to play with when it comes to hardwork and Going for what we want in life. We have gone through the furnace and were made strong by the experience.

Sometimes if feels like we need to put people on a seat and yell them just how much we go through as a Nigerian. We are full of desperation and that on itself takes us to that unwanted level of wealth chasing. There are ways to bring people to book. Why is there the need to kill someone when you can simply deport and blacklist them from your country? The south Africans in Nigeria are hardly noticed because they blend right in with the Nigerians who really don’t care. These issues only come up when we are attacked first. So please, no one ever wins from a war/crisis. Just take a look at this destruction.

President Trump May have confirmed that the United States is violating Iran’s airspace to spy on its missile program.


from @coveringpotus  – In a tweet Friday, President Trump revealed a detailed aerial image of an Iranian launchpad, an unusual disclosure that may have confirmed the United States is violating Iran’s airspace to spy on its missile program.⁠⠀


Some imagery experts, examining the angle and very-high resolution of the image, said it may have been taken by an aircraft, possibly a drone.⁠⠀


Then on Saturday, Iran displayed for reporters what it said was an intact satellite ready for orbit, hitting back against President Trump’s comments suggesting a “catastrophic accident” had delayed its launch. ⁠⠀


Officials presented the satellite, Nahid-1, at a space research center in Tehran, where it is awaiting the preparation of a rocket launcher, Iranian media reported. Iran has successfully sent several satellites into orbit in recent years. ⁠⠀


Iran’s information and communications technology minister, Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi, posted on Twitter a photo of himself next to the satellite. ⁠⠀


“Me & Nahid I right now, Good Morning Donald Trump!” he wrote.

Days after the news broke that the Seme border of Nigeria, was shut down and restriction prevailed thereby leading to a discomforting stand still situation for travellers.
