Americans visibly Distraught as Alabama passes ban on Abortion.

washingtonpost-1558042223993

from @msjeanettejenkins – Our bodies, Our choice. ❤️I stand strong to protect the rights of ALL WOMEN to choose what they would like to do with their bodies. ❤️If you don’t want to have an abortion then with all due respect don’t have one but STAY OUT of other women’s lives & their privacy & human right to choose. I donate & support @plannedparenthood and you can too. They have been helping women for over 100years. ❤️#WomensRights #ReproductiveRights – #obyorijiblog

Reposted from @washingtonpost – Hours after the Alabama Senate voted late Tuesday to ban abortions in almost all circumstances — including in cases of rape and incest — women’s rights activists and pro-choice advocates said the decision to approve the nation’s strictest abortion measure has energized them. Knowing that the bill was designed to challenge Roe v. Wade, they are gearing up for the fight. Surrounded by posters and signs like “This Clinic Stays Open,” Mia Raven, director of People Organizing for Women’s Empowerment and Rights (POWER) House, called the passage of Alabama’s restrictive bill “totally expected.” “And totally blatantly unconstitutional,” she said Wednesday outside of Reproductive Health Services, one of three clinics that perform abortions in Alabama.

Conservatives and antiabortion activists also were prepared for a battle, celebrating the Alabama vote as a victory for their movement and a step toward a national legal reckoning over abortion.

 

Though not demonstrating in the streets, Alabama’s antiabortion base — which recently helped define the state as officially pro-life at the ballot box — took solace in the fact that the state’s ban on abortion set a new restrictive standard.

from @abcnews – Abortion rights protesters demonstrate outside the Louisiana House chamber as a proposal to ban abortions as early as the sixth week of pregnancy continues to speed through the state legislature. #abortion #protest #louisiana – #obyorijiblog

from @voguemagazine – The Alabama Senate has approved the most far-reaching anti-abortion legislation in the country—but it won’t stop there. Anti-choice activists and legislators have been outspoken about their ultimate goal: to finally overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that enshrined a woman’s right to legal, safe abortion in the Constitution. Yesterday’s Alabama vote is the result of years of anti-choice groundwork laid by voter suppression and court packing, and it is an omen of what’s to come. We break down everything you need to know in the link in our bio. Photographed by @justingellerson – #obyorijiblog

from @cnn – Alabama’s near-total ban on abortion was passed late Tuesday by a group of 25 male Republican state senators.

 

Just six state senators, all Democrats, voted against it. The legislation, which now awaits the governor’s signature, could punish doctors who perform abortions with life in prison, and bans the procedure in nearly all cases, including for victims of rape and incest. Three state senators didn’t vote or weren’t present, and one abstained. – #obyorijiblog

 

from @amberrose – This is so sad and honestly do they think that Abortions still won’t happen? This will just result in back alley Abortions where women can really hurt themselves and possibly die. Let us have a right to choose what we do with our bodies with safe medical professionals. These men and women are disgusting! I’m completely outraged! #womensrights – #obyorijiblog

from @badgalriri – take a look. these are the idiots making decisions for WOMEN in America.
Governor Kay Ivey…SHAME ON YOU!!!! – #obyorijiblog

from @georginaonuoha – Lord does this make me mad and angry that these bunch of white old haggard bastards are telling women what to do with their bodies.
As a Catholic I believe in the sanctity of life. But will never give in to bunch of old zealots passing laws concerning my body and reproductive wellbeing.

These men passing anti- abortions laws,are the same imbeciles who will go behind to rape women, cheat on their wives, and patronize prostitution. Yet they call them selves Christians who want women to keep pregnancies if they are rapped. They want women to keep pregnancies even if their fathers, uncles or brothers rape them? Why don’t you just let women and their families and doctors reach that decision instead of a freaking politician making that decision for them?

These are same men who will not provide healthcare to poor kids in Alabama, cut school lunches for poor kids, put young immigrant kids in cages, and kill as capital punishment.. This is going back to medieval era when men own women, dictates to them and control them. This is male superiority over women. Yet these scums pass laws that fund viagra for men.

How about passing laws that all men should be castrated if they cheat on your wives. Force all men to get vasectomy and reverse it when they are ready to have babies. How about we punch men who masturbate punishable by 6 years in prison.

By the way, if you will punish a woman who gets abortion even when she is raped, what happens to the man who raped her? She gets 99 years in prison and the rapist 2 to 3 years?

This is sickening and these useless men should be ashamed of themselves. This is where I disagree with my faith as a Catholic. Pushing this whole nonsense about life begins at birth with zero rights to women to make that choice, meanwhile thousands of Catholic priest are busy raping innocent kids, impregnating women, fathering kids , yet the church covers it and put up a useless face when it comes to abortion. It’s time @franciscus and the church begin to re-evaluate this dogma pushed on people by Pope John Paul the 2nd. Let a woman make her choice with her family and doctors. Not everyone is mentally capable of carrying the child of a rapist 😡😡 – #obyorijiblog

from @berniesanders – Alabama’s abortion ban is blatantly unconstitutional. – #obyorijiblog

from @guardian – These are the 25 men who voted to pass the most restrictive abortion law in the United States, outlawing the procedure at all stages of pregnancy. The near-blanket ban contains an exemption for when a woman’s health is at serious risk, but not for rape or incest. Doctors who perform the procedure could face up to 99 years in prison.

It’s the sixteenth state this year to place restrictions on abortion rights.

Just four women sit in the Alabama senate, all of whom are part of the Democratic party minority and voted against the bill.

Pay More Attention To Education, Human Capital Development Bakare Tells Buhari.

The senior pastor and general overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to revive education system and human capital development in Nigeria.

In an exclusive chat with Channels Television on the Easter celebrations, the clergyman also charged President Buhari to ensure he appoints the best hands in order to succeed in his second term of office.

We have neglected the greatest asset of any nation, human capital. Our educational system has gone down the drain; we need to revive all that. Our universities are glorified secondary schools; let us solidify the ones we have. It’s okay to start a university, but let us maintain a standard.

My Opinion

There is only some much that we can say to a president who is surrounded by the people he thinks are the smartness people alive, only because they happen to belive in the same religion as him.

Now everyone who is looking from outside to inside the presidential rock, wi see that a lot is going back, but can the man whom all these are directed to get access to all of these messages and worries from the people?

We all can only hope.

Oil exports: Nigeria cuts selling prices to lure buyers

punchnewspapers-1555856685213

In what should excite the citizens, but is rather making them react indifferently, because they don’t even feel the impact of the revenue into the country.

 

Now while everyone in Nigeria is praying that the oil dries up so that we can have people living on their actual means, especially the corrupt thieves who call themselves them politicians. Now they are cutting down the price.

Now back to the news you came to this blog to read,  Nigeria has officially  cut its selling price of a basket of May-loading crude oil grades in a bid to attract buyers.

The nation’s crude oil has had a difficult time clearing in recent weeks, as offer levels were too high to attract buying interest from European refineries.
Nigeria released its official selling prices for May, showing a decrease for major grades, including Bonny Light and Qua Iboe, Forcados and Escravos, by around 20 to 25 cents compared with April, according to Reuters.

 

Buyers had been largely reluctant to pick up cargoes of May-loading cargoes offered at and above a premium of $2 compared to dated Brent.

APC to Tribunal: Atiku is a Cameroonian, can’t challenge Buhari’s victory

atikulated_1-1555116204054

APC has filed a motion at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja that the candidate of PDP in the February 23, 2019 Presidential Election, Atiku Abubakar, is not a Nigerian and therefore not qualified to have stood for the election, Channels TV reports.

The Party claimed that the former Vice President is a Cameroonian and not a Nigerian citizen and his petition against President Buhari, should be dismissed for lacking in merit.

In a reply to the petition of Atiku and the PDP, praying for their declaration as the lawful winner of the presidential poll, the APC said that the 11.1 million votes recorded in favor of the two petitioners should be voided and considered a waste by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

The APC’s reply to the petition, filed by its lead counsel, Lateef Fagbemi, faulted the candidacy of Atiku in the election insisting that as a Cameroonian, he ought not to have taken part in the presidential poll of Nigeria in the first instance.

The Party averred that Atiku was born on November 25, 1946, in Jada, Adamawa, in Northern Cameroon and is, therefore, a citizen of Cameroon and not a Nigerian by birth.

Atiku had in his petition, faulted the conduct of the February 23 Presidential Election, on the ground of non-compliance with relevance electoral laws and other malpractices such as intimidation of voters, the unlawful arrest of his sympathizers and the harassment by soldiers and other law enforcement of those wishing to vote for him.

The party, therefore, prayed the tribunal to uphold the victory of its candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, who polled 15,191,347 to emerge the winner and his subsequent declaration as president-elect by INEC while also urging that the petition against the victory should be dismissed for having no cause of action. No date has been fixed for the hearing of the petition – #obyorijiblog

Wike’s Win: Reno Omokri mocks Amaechi as he says No to #endsars

renoomokri-1554324699256

Reposted from @renoomokri – Governor Wike, #TheAmaechiSlayer, forced Rotimi Amaechi to give birth to the creature his potbelly has carried for many years. Congratulations  Amaechi. You have given birth to triplets named DISGRACE, DEFEAT and REJECTION. Both father and triplets are doing well in Abuja. The butterfly that thinks it is an eagle should learn from this parable: You can’t win a competition in your mother’s house with the praise your stepmother gives you. She is only using you to spite your mother. The day you become useless to her is the day she will poison you. Lizard of Ubima! – #obyorijiblog

Reposted from @renoomokri – What that particular SARS officer did is wrong and he should be held individually responsible. But before we think of ending SARS, let us pick a small area, like Mushin, and test it there. If by ending SARS in Mushin crime reduces, then I will support #EndSARS. If not, I will prefer #ReformSARS – #obyorijiblog

punchnewspapers-1554295688559

Tinubu denies involvement in Sokoto election

punchnewspapers-1553466717992

National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has denied having anything to do with the governorship election in Sokoto State.
.
The former Lagos State governor, who said this while reacting to a newspaper advertorial on Friday accusing him of conniving with the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, to rig the rerun election in favour of the APC candidate, said that the falsehood was being sponsored by members of the Peoples Democratic Party yet to recover from the loss suffered during the general elections.
.
A statement signed by his media aide, Tunde Rahman, said, “An advertorial, placed by a shadowy organisation calling itself the Sokoto State Coalition of the PDP Supporters and placed in the March 21, 2019 edition of Daily Trust is baseless.
.
“Titled, “Inconclusive gubernatorial election: Sokoto people warn Tinubu, Oshiomhole, Yari, Bagudu and others”, the advert falsely alleges that Asiwaju along with the others met the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, in order to influence the Sokoto State gubernatorial rerun election in favour of the APC.
.
“These allegations by a contrived PDP organ are desperate untruths without a basis in fact. It is a matter of public record that Asiwaju has always been at the forefront of the struggle for electoral reform.
.
“His only tools for influencing elections are his moral authority, his skills as a veteran politician, and his dedication to campaigning and mobilising his own party members. This allegation is entirely in line with the delusional reactions of PDP to their devastating loss in the presidential elections.” – #obyorijiblog – #regrann

Saraki is the biggest loser in 2019 elections, says BMO

punchnewspapers-1553383210231

The Buhari Media Organisation has said Senate President Bukola Saraki is the biggest loser in the 2019 general elections because he has lost so much in the power equation and is fast on his way to political extinction.

The Pro-Buhari group described Saraki as a perennial political schemer who had suddenly lost relevance and therefore frustrated.
In a statement signed by its Chairman, Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, the BMO said Saraki’s comment that the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election would be short-lived could only be described as the ranting of a politically expired person.
