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.

The walk that seems to be the main purpose of this administration seems to be going just  fine.

Awkward: Macron and  Trump break the ice during pre-G7 lunch


French President Emmanuel Macron hosted his US counterpart Donald Trump for a previously unscheduled lunch Saturday ahead of the official opening of the G7 summit in southwest France.


The two leaders sat on a terrace at the ornate Hotel du Palais in the Atlantic resort of Biarritz, the G7 venue, just a day after Trump reiterated his threat of tariffs against French wine in retaliation for a new tax on major US tech companies.

The surprise lunch appeared to be an attempt by Macron to get the summit off on a good footing after a tense build-up in which Trump and EU leaders traded threats of trade war.

Via: Punchnews

Credit to from @coveringpotus  – President Trump who now has a track record of crashing into global forums with a torrent of tweets, complaints and bombast, arrived on Saturday for the Group of Seven summit. ⁠⠀


In the days leading up to the G-7, Trump engaged in an escalation of his trade war with China, blasted Denmark for not selling Greenland to the United States, declared the world to be in recession, harassed his central bank chairman, threatened tariffs against several of the G-7 nations and called for G-7 outcast Russia to be readmitted to the group.⁠⠀


After arriving in Biarritz, Trump had an impromptu lunch with French President Emmanuel Macron, where the two leaders immediately discussed some of the issues that will dominate the weekend summit.⁠⠀


Macron told Trump that the leaders needed to work on “how to decrease tensions and fix the situation in terms of trade. He also discussed the global economic slowdown, saying “we need some new tools to relaunch our economy.”⁠⠀

14 years 🙄 : ‘Kogi West’ Smart Adeyemi Is ‘My Political Wife’ – Melaye.



Embattled lawmaker, Senator Dino Melaye has described Senator Smart Adeyemi as his ‘political wife’. The lawmaker said this in an interview with Channels Television on Friday in Abuja after the Kogi State National Assembly and State Assembly Elections Petitions Tribunal sacked him as the senator representing Kogi West district.


A three-man panel of the Tribunal led by Justice Anthony Chijioke had in a unanimous judgment ordered a fresh election in the senatorial district.

My Opinion

We know very much that by now, it is no news to leave trash talk to whom trash talking is expected from. Dino is not a stranger to weirdness, so his expressions are not exactly held against him since he has suddenly become their punching bag. In hop he gets out of this, and then he represents his people well. Otherwise, he is already a rich man from the government appointments, so he should be the happy and hearty.

APC gave me N13m for 2019 elections — suspected kidnap kingpin, Hamisu Wadume.


Wadume: DHQ panel concludes report, soldiers risk dismissal


The seven-man Joint Investigative Panel set up by the Defence Headquarters, Abuja, to probe the killing of three policemen in Ibi, Taraba State, has concluded its report and would submit it to the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen Abayomi Olonisakin, on Monday.


Top military sources said the report was believed to have indicted some army and police personnel as well as a few civilians, noting that the officers and soldiers would likely face court-martial and dismissal, “going by their level of culpability.” The panel concluded its work on Friday after sitting for three days at the Defence Intelligence Agency, Abuja, during which it grilled army officers, soldiers, policemen and the suspected kidnap kingpin, Hamisu Wadume.

Credit to from @renoomokri  – Just look at that! 3 days ago, a Katsina bandit revealed on @MobilePunch that they get armed by helicopters who drop weapons for them. Now Kidnapper, Wadume, exposes @APC as his sponsors. The truth is unraveling. We are back in Abacha days!

DSS takes El-Zakzaky into custody just as he lands in Nigeria


Following a sudden decision made by the the ailing  IMN leader El-Zakzaky who was flown to India on Monday to return, a group of DSS men were said to have been laying in wait for him as he landed the country.

According to punchnews, The leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky, has landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, from India, where his planned medical treatment was aborted.

But he was immediately taken into custody by the Department of State Services which whisked him away on arrival at the airport.

El-Zakzaky arrived via an Ethiopian airline around 12.05pm and was driven away by the security operatives shortly after.

The President, Media Forum of IMN, Ibrahim Musa, confirmed to our correspondent that El-Zakzaky was taken away by DSS operatives, following the charges that were leveled against which involved homicide.

El-Zakzaky who allegedly discharged himself while he was said to have landed India  for the sole aim of receiving the much needed treatment that he and his fellow Shiites requested for specifically for him and his wife Zeenat, but have now returned the country just fours days after leaving it, due to the fact that his preferred physician isn’t the one allowed to treat him.

Barely 96 hours after landing in New Delhi for medical treatment, leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem el-Zakzaky, has reportedly discharged himself from the Medenta Hospital and is now on his way back to Nigeria.

The President, Media Forum of IMN, Ibrahim Musa, said that El-Zakzaky and his wife, Zeenat, who were airborne as of the time of speaking with our Correspondent on Thursday evening, left New Delhi around 5:00 p.m. Nigerian time, heading back to the country.

The group said, “The Nigerian government’s interference and scuttling of the whole process rather than supervision as ordered by the court is the direct cause of the impasse.

“The government never wanted the medical leave in the first place, and did whatever to stop it by all means possible,” Musa alleged.

However after making it to the Country, he made the very abrupt decision to terminate the medical leave and come right home. I hope they let him recover from all these though, even though that doesn’t seem to be the case because he has been taken into custody.

While the number of press men and women present were said to have been hiked to an impressive number at the checkpoints  Abuja roads all as The leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky and his wife Zeena  landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

El-Zakzaky’s flight, an Ethiopian Airlines flight ET911, touched down at the NAIA around 12noon on Friday and he was whisked away by security operatives from the Department of State Services.

Journalists who gathered at the arrival terminal of the international wing of the airport were not able to capture the Sheikh, as sources at the NAIA confirmed that he was smuggled out of the facility through a different exit.

Before his flight touched down in Abuja, armed security operatives were deployed in large numbers at the airport as confirmed by the eyewitnesses.

Reno Omokri livid after President Buhari asked CBN to withdraw all forex provided for food importation


Where ever there is a good, there will be a not s on good. While Alibaba was impressed with the decree, Reno is not finding appropriate.could it be that Reno is right, or is he just always going to be at the opposite side of the argument just as long as President Buhari is involved.

Credit to from @renoomokri– Since we also have schools in Nigeria, I hope General Buhari, will order the CBN not to provide forex for his children who currently school in England. So selfish a leader. He wants to ban forex for food for the masses, while he educates his children abroad with our forex. While he is at it, General Buhari should also ask the CBN not to provide forex for medical tourists. No Nigerian has consumed forex for personal reasons like General Buhari, who spent almost 6 months in England in 2017, but the hypocrite doesn’t want forex for the masses good!

from @channelstelevision “Anyone with the insinuation” that President Buhari’s government has not done well is ‘a liar from the pit of hell’. – Joe Igbokwe

You (PDP) were there for 16 years and we didn’t see anything. In the midst of plenty, I cannot lay my hands on anything. Support your leader, don’t be a distraction. Anybody who tells you Buhari is not doing well is a liar from the pit of hell given where we are coming from,” he said.
