CCT: SANs disagree over calls for Saraki’s resignation


With the Code of Conduct Tribunal trial of the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, set to begin on March 10, some senior lawyers in the country are divided over whether or not the Senate President should resign.
The Senate President is charged with 13 counts of false asset declaration and risks 14-year imprisonment if convicted.
Some senators called for Saraki’s resignation, following the February 5 ruling of the Supreme Court that dismissed his appeal.
But a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, who served as a lawyer to Saraki, Yusuf Ali.described the calls as politically motivated.
Ali said, “I was part of the team that handled the matter. We were hoping that we would succeed, but the Supreme Court thought otherwise and that is the final court in Nigeria. As somebody trained to believe in the rule law and observe it, that is the end of the story on that matter.
“That is a political call. The man is old enough to know what is right to do. I think it is a politically motivated call and we all knew this from the beginning.
“Even before he was arraigned, there were some calls already by some people that he should step down. I don’t see any significance in that call. There is nothing significant as far as I know.”
Asked what next line of legal action Saraki would take, Ali said, “That is something I would rather keep very close to my heart because we have a team and when we have our meeting and then get a briefing from our client, we will let you know.”
Similarly, another SAN, Emeka Ngige, supported the Supreme Court judgment, but faulted the calls for Saraki to step down.
Ngige also described the calls as politically-motivated, adding that the Senate President should not be condemned before the verdict of the tribunal.
“The issue of (Saraki) stepping down is a political issue among them (senators). There are governors that won election while in prison as accused persons and they were inaugurated. As far as I know, he remains innocent until he is proved guilty,” the senior advocate said.
But the Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), said he agreed with the senators calling on Saraki to step down.
According to the senior lawyer, Saraki should step down until the CCT declares him innocent of the charges preferred against him.
“I agree entirely with them. In a developed, civilised country, when a leader at his level — the number three man in government — is charged to court for alleged corruption, such a leader should resign. The charge has to do with asset declaration.
“In a civilised country, the person would resign so as not to tarnish the public position that he is holding. Then if he is vindicated in the end, he will come back. But of course, this is totally un-Nigerian. So, I don’t expect that he will do that,” Sagay said.

Check corruption, dwindling economy, PDP chief tells Buhari


A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Dr. Yemi Oladimeji, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to check the country’s dwindling economy and corruption in governance.
He spoke in a telephone interview with our correspondent on Monday.
Oladimeji, who vied to become Osun State governor in 2007 on the platform of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria, described the nation’s dwindling economy as an ill wind.
The US-based nephrologist said the unprecedented slide of the naira against the dollar should be checked through massive investments in agriculture and small-scale entrepreneurs.
Oladimeji, who later defected to the PDP, said it was high time the Federal Government put its hands on the plough and evolve ‘an ingenious means of arresting the collapsing economy’.
Expressing support for the ongoing anti-corruption war, Oladimeji lamented that corruption was the bane of the nation’s development.
He said, “The body language of the President against corruption is commendable. We must all support him in this direction. But the anti-corruption campaign must not be selective.
“If you probe PDP leaders over the funding of election campaign, the same must be done to the leaders of the All Progressives Congress. Answers must be provided to the question of where Buhari got his election funding from.”

Senate orders immediate reversal of new electricity tariff


The Senate on Tuesday directed the immediate reversal of the recent hike in electricity tariff announced by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission.
The upper chamber, gave the directive while adopting a two-prayer motion moved by  the All Progressives Congress member representing  Bauchi North, Senator Suleiman Nazif.
The  senate also asked its committee on Labour to carefully review the law establishing NERC with a view to making it a strong regulatory body that will ensure that both the consumer and investor will be treated fairly and equitably.
It also mandated the committee on Employment, Labour and Productivity to organise a public hearing of stakeholders, including the Ministry of Power; the  NERC; DISCOS; and GENCOS so that an acceptable way of resolving all issues relating to the sector could be effectively resolved.
Nazif lamented the alleged arbitrary increase of the tariff and insisted that due process was not followed as stipulated in Section 76 of the Power Sector Reform Act 2005.
He also argued that the new tariff would have a multiplier effect on the Nigerian economy with the manufacturing companies being forced to pay more for power consumption.
He added that most consumers were not provided with meter in accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding dated November 1, 2013.
According to him, the document stipulated that within 18 months of gestation period, all consumers would have been provided with meter.
He further accused the Discos of continuously exploiting Nigerians and increasing their burdens.
He said, “The distribution companies have continued to exploit Nigerians by estimated billing system for the majority of consumers while deliberately refusing to make ore-paid meters available.
“Privatisation in any part of the world is meant to inject fresh funds into the concerned sector and not to impose ridiculous tariff on helpless masses.
“The increase is only intended to protect the investment of select few and not to serve the interest of Nigerian masses who are already battling with the prevailing economic recession. The increase in tariff will pave way for additional heavy burden on consumers and coupled with challenges in the economy.
“It will adversely affect the purchasing power of Nigerian workers and the entire Nigerian masses and by extension, aggravate restiveness in the country.”
Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu,  described the increase as wicked and unfortunate.
He said the new tariff should be randomly condemned and immediately withdrawn in the interest of hapless citizens of Nigeria.
He added that troubling the citizens who are already wallowing in abject poverty and acute state of insecurity, should not be encumbered with further hike in electricity tariff unless there is a plan to frustrate the the people.
Also speaking on the motion, Senator Dino Melaye (Kogi West), said the recent increase was the fourth since the privatisation exercise was concluded.
He added that whereas Discos always hinge such increase on moves to improve power supply, yet there is no stable power supply neither are metres made available.

Probing Jonathan will be futile —Babatope


A member of the Peoples Democratic Party Board of Trustees, Chief Ebenezer Babatope, on Monday said that any attempt to probe ex-President Goodluck Jonathan would be an exercise in futility.
Babatope, who spoke in a telephone interview with our correspondent, said the ex-President has not done anything wrong to warrant being probed.
He said, “Any probe of ex-President Jonathan will be an exercise in futility because he has done nothing wrong to warrant any probe.
“When Papa Obafemi Awolowo was alive, he described probe as an exercise in futility.”
When reminded that Awolowo was speaking in view of the prevailing impunity of the time, Babatope said ‘the words of the sage remain relevant to our present day realities’.
Babatope’s comment came on the heels of a call by the Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria, Lagos State chapter, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, who called for the prosecution of Jonathan.
Bamgbola, who spoke in Lagos on Saturday at an interdenominational service, said nobody should be spared in the ongoing anti-corruption war.
He said, “What is wrong with it? A former President of Peru (Alberto Fujimori) was jailed. Also, a popular Prime Minister of Israel (Ehud Olmert) was jailed. If a nation puts you in a position of trust and you betray that trust, you should go to jail no matter who you are. I have no sympathy for anybody. Just make sure you get it right.”
He lamented the corruption in the country, urging the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to go after looters and ‘put them where they belong, so that we may have peace in this nation’.
But the former Minister of Transport said that the anti-corruption war appeared to be predicated on vendetta.
Babatope said, “What are they probing; security votes under Jonathan? During Buhari’s first time in power as a military ruler, he cast many governors into jail on account of misappropriation of security votes.
“This is what we are witnessing again. We have people who have gone to court to challenge their trials. Let’s wait and see. The PDP will support the anti-corruption war but we won’t accept an anti-corruption war tinged with vendetta.”
Babatope said the PDP will chase out the APC in 2019 because Nigerians could now see the difference between the two parties.
“I am in Abuja for the election of our national chairman. We are electing our chairman from the North-East. Our party is putting everything together; we will come back stronger and better. Our members should not give up hope. We are chasing out the APC in 2019,” he said.

Graghic footage: Drug dealer beaten with electrical cables & tourtured after being caught by pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine

The shocking video shows the man begging for his life as he's repeatedly brutally whipped with electrical cables while tied with red tape to a wooden post in southern Ukraine's Donetsk Oblast region.

The whipping was carried out by a militant identified as 'Olkhon' who came from the central Russian city of Novosibirsk to support Ukrainian pro-Russian rebels. A voice in the background of the video says: 'The f****** film shooting has started. This is the punishment of a drug dealer".


The man is subsequently asked if he is admitting he is a junkie, to which he cries out no.
The man then started to beg for his life and is heard saying:
Stop please! I'll say what you need. I will call another drug dealer and he will arrive with drugs.
But then they demand to know why he has a drug dealer's phone number and the beating continues.
 The person who shot the video then speaks saying:
"We don't need courts, sentences, this is what we need.'
The video was posted online by an official community of pro-Russian rebels on the Russian social network VKontakte.

Photos: Decomposing body of a 9-year-old girl found in a drain more than a month after she went missing

Decomposing body of a 9-year-old young girl who went missing more than a month ago was found in a stormwater drain on the corner of Mathlare and Tsomo streets, Mamelodi, SA on February 12.


Zinhle Ndala was playing outside with other children when she disappeared on the afternoon of January 4. No one can explain what happened to her. She was last seen wearing blue jeans, a lime t-shirt and brown shoes. Zinhle is a pupil at Zakhele Primary School and had passed with good grades and was ready to get into grade 2 this year.

The family was so upset about her disappearance they couldn't sleep at night. Her anxious mother wandered the streets at night, hoping she would find her daughter.

The family has reported Zinhle’s disappearance to Mamelodi East police who have confirmed the case was being investigated.

Forencic tests are underway to officially confirm her identity.
"These results take time and the police wish to do their work properly. We will not rush forensics,” said Captain Tsekiso Mofokeng on Monday, February 15.
Zinhle’s mother Thoko said she positively identified her child’s body at the mortuary from her clothes and hairstyle. Thoko said she was heartbroken but was consoled by the fact that the family would now get closure.
"Now we can have a proper funeral."
The date for the funeral is still to be set. Bystanders said a municipal cleaner saw a skull sticking out from under a black refuse bag near the entrance of Rethabile sports ground in Mamelodi East. He alerted the police.

There is no resurgence of Boko Haram despite recent attacks – FG

The Federal Government has said the recent spate of attacks by Boko Haram is not an indication of any resurgence by Boko Haram, insisting that the terrorist group remains largely decimated, dispersed and disoriented.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said anyone who is conversant with the technicalities of insurgency will not be surprised by the attacks.


”During the immediate period after an insurgency has been degraded, the fact that terrorists are dispersed into the community is often followed by an upsurge of terror attacks in the form of suicide bombing and sabotage of critical facilities. Activities during these period are often carried out within population and against soft targets or vulnerable groups. There is often apprehension in the community that terrorism is getting worse, even though, in reality, insurgency has been weakened as a cohesive terror force. This is the current phase of insurgency in the country,” he said.
While strongly condemning the attacks and commiserating with the families of those who were killed, Lai Mohammed appealed for caution in the comments being made over the attacks so as not to provide succour for Boko Haram, which thrives on propaganda.
”Many commentators have latched on to these attacks to infer a resurgence of Boko Haram, while some have even made outrageous statements regarding the territories controlled by Boko Haram. Fortunately, no less a personality than the President, strongly backed by the Governors of Borno and Yobe, has debunked such unsubstantiated claims. Gentlemen, there is no resurgence of Boko Haram. The terrorists remain massively degraded and largely defeated. The recent string of attacks is not an indication that Boko Haram is bouncing back,” he said.
The Minister also insisted that Nigerians owe the military total support in its ongoing battle to consolidate the great achievements it has recorded in the fight against Boko Haram. ”We want to appeal to all not to say or do anything that will demoralize our gallant men and women in uniform, who are daily fighting – and sometimes paying the supreme price – so that we can all be safe. Having travelled to the theatre of operations myself, I have seen the huge sacrifices of our military. They deserve nothing but our undiluted support. This is the best form of appreciation we can show them at this time. Anything else is counter-productive. Commendation, not condemnation. Support, not second guessing. That’s what we owe the gallant troops,” he said.

On what the government is doing to end the spate of attacks, especially against highly-vulnerable communities, Lai Mohammed said appropriate measures, in line with global best practices, were being taken to ensure an effective response.
”These include the strengthening of intelligence and security, especially in the affected communities, and the stepping up of the reconstruction, rehabilitation and resettlement efforts. While these efforts are going on, the government enjoins members of the public to be vigilant; security conscious, and to cooperate with security agencies by providing information on suspicious and strange objects, activities and persons in their communities. By doing these, we will be denying terrorists a safe haven and the opportunity to carry out their atrocities,” he said.
The Minister reiterated the efforts made by the Administration, in the past nine months, to effectively tackle Boko Haram, saying:
”The Administration has succeeded in galvanizing our neighbouring countries and the global community, including major powers, towards the defeat of insurgency and the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the communities and population most affected by terrorism. Boko Haram has been dislodged from their occupied territories; thousands of their captives have been set free; their capacity to operate as a troop moving in convoy of vehicles and motor cycles to launch attacks on communities and military formations has been neutralized. In essence, the insurgents have been effectively denied territory or sanctuary and are now in disarray. Scattered, demoralized and hungry, they have resorted to terror tactics available to a degraded and defeated insurgent group. The fact that they operate in a few local governments does not equate to holding and controlling territories. We must make that distinction".

The pretty lady who was declared wanted by EFCC writes in to tell her side of the story

                             
EFCC this morning declared Elfreda Sekibo wanted for conspiracy and forgery . Writing exclusively to LIB, Elfreda tells her story. Read below...
Good Morning Glowiia, I've been receiving calls and messages all morning concerning your post and i just want to clear the air. My name is Nemi Elfreda Lolo Sekibo, 26 years old with a degree in BA Economics and Msc in International Business. I lost my dad on the 18th of November 2013, my parents separated when i was 4, when my dad passed my mum was asked to move back into his house according to tradition.
I was against it but she eventually did because she wanted to honour my dad, before he died he had a woman living in his house as his care taker from when he fell ill years back, she also has a child for my father who is my older brother named James Sekibo, we attended the same secondary school everyone thought we were from the same parents, thats how close we were.
My mum got married to my dad in her early twenties at the time my dad already had 3 kids from 3 different women she didn't know about and as she found out she gathered them and brought them back to my dads house and took care of them as her own. Few years later they separated and thats when James mum came and had James and when she found out my parents were getting back together she ran away and left James for my mum and dad to take care of. James is 30 this year, he was born in 1986 but only knew his mum in 2003,  all the while she left him to be taken care of by different women, my mum was the one who made my dad change him from the school he was in,  to Jephthah Comprehensive Secondary School and at the time it was the best school in Port Harcourt.
He is my senior with 4 years but he was only a year ahead of me in secondary school, right now at 30 he cannot boast of a first degree certificate, even when my mum tried to get him to do lessons at showers to help gain admission into a university in Ghana, he was collecting money from my dad but he was not attending lessons so they reported to my mum and my mum told my dad, I believe that's where the hatred started from. 
Before my Dad died his mum had been trying to persuade my Dad to marry her, but my Dad refused because she had 5 different boys from 5 different men, even the last boy she had she tried to pin it on my Dad but we found his real father, in fact she gave her fourth son to this man, and then tried to give this mans real son to my Dad, but we found out, her fourth sons fathers name is Eze, and the last son is for another Okirika man. Long story short, my mother single handedly buried my Dad with the help of the Federal Government because of the position he held at the time. 
My fathers relatives, my brother James and his mother, from the first day my Dad died had already started planning on how to sell my Dads properties to share amongst themselves. They stole my Dads documents from his Clinic while my mum and I were still in the village mourning his death, this was just a day after they had put him in the ground. 
I didn't conspire with anyone concerning any of my Dads documents, my sisters and I were not even allowed to be present for any meetings because they said we were women. These are fabricated allegations attempting to tarnish my image thinking it would affect my Mum and I, because she has refused to let them have their way, as long as we are concerned My Dads property is for his immediate family but James wants it for himself, his mother  and his bastard siblings.
 I've never had to do this before and I don't wish this on anyone, my Dad was a very good and humble man and even though he had his flaws with women, he doesn't deserve this.This case is already in court and my mum and I have a restraining order from the court against the EFCC.
This is a picture of my mum and my siblings when we were younger that's James sitting next to my mum and me on the other side
My mum and all of us again
This is a pic of my mum and dad in SA, this was the first time he was walking in days after he collapsed. I was the one who took the picture, it was just three of us in SA together, while James and his Mum were in his house in PH
I was the only one who flew with him to SA with an air ambulance and my mum came 2 days after cause her visa wasn't ready on time

I’m not ready for trial - Dasuki

Former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, today told a Federal High Court in Abuja that he was not ready for his trial to be continued. Speaking at the hearing of the money laundering charges filed against him by the Department of State Security DSS today February 16th, speaking through his Counsel, Joseph Dauda, Dasuki said he will not be available for the trial until the Federal government obey the court orders that granted him bail last year.

Dasuki was re-arrested by the DSS on fresh charges of money laundering and illegal possession of firearms after he had fulfilled bail conditions for separate charges filed against him by EFCC.

Counsel to Dasuki, Joseph Dauda, while presenting his argument to the judge, said “We cannot be ready for trial until the defendant enjoys his constitutional rights.

We apply that we should be given time to prepare the defence. The conduct of the prosecution has not enabled him to enjoy his constitutional rights. The worst is that for about seven weeks we do not know where he is. Any of us here who proceeds to defend an accused person in this circumstance may lose his license of practice.”he said

The judge adjourned the hearing to March 3rd.

Bauchi Governor (@GovMAA) wants you to leave Dubai and come to his state

Yesterday, twitter was on fire as Bauchi State governor, Muhammad Abubakar, went on the platform to promote his state. According to him, because of the high exchange rate, it is more expensive for people to travel to Dubai, London and America for holidays. So he wants you to come to Yankari Game Reserve, which is in Bauchi. See Tweets after the cut...

The governor also said the state is secure and has not had any security issues. Beautiful place. Would you visit Bauchi though?

What kind of creature is this? (photo)


A mysterious creature that looks more like an animal out of a myth book rather than a real life creature was found washed ashore on the banks of Lake Macquarie in New South Wales in Australia.

Ethan Tipper snapped an image of the creature before posting it online to see if anyone could identify it. The creature has a long, slender body with scales and a tail like a crocodile with no legs, a head shaped like a dolphin's and a mouth full of razor sharp teeth. Can anyone identify this animal ?

Sunday Oliseh must prepare Super Eagles early or Egypt will stop us from AFCON

Former Super Eagles player Friday Ekpo, has urged the Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh to begin early preparations for the African Cup of Nations qualifier with Egypt next month or risk missing out on the competition as the Pharaoh's are determined and prepared to qualify from the qualifying group which they are currently topping.

Nigeria missed out on the 2015 Afcon and are currently in second place behind Egypt in Group G as both teams are scheduled to face off in March 26 according to the recent dates released by the NFF as confirmed by CAF.

Friday Ekpo said:
"We need early preparation and how many players do we have playing regularly abroad now that’ll give us what we need come March. He (Sunday Oliseh) should start early preparation and give them soccer orientation the way he wants to play his game.
"The Egyptians are preparing full well and when they come here it is either they pull a draw or win. It wouldn’t be wise to wait until 2 or 3 days before we invite the players. Our players don’t have that kind of strength.”.

Video: Heartbroken mum receives balloon from her dead child's 'ghost'

 
The heart-breaking footage, begins with the camera focusing on the white coffin of a small child which is sitting on an alter. As the wake progresses, one of the white balloons at the venue starts to strangely move around and eventually makes its way towards the distraught mum.

The video which is believed to have been filmed in Mexico shows the woman weeping while Ed Sheeran’s Thinking Out Loud plays. The balloon makes its way towards the woman and hovers around her head.
Rather than continuing to float,  it actually stays for at least 20 seconds before the grief- stricken mum noticed the strange occurrence. She eventually reaches out to it and cuddles it .

Since the clip was posted online, it has sparked a debate amongst those who've watched it. While some sent their condolences and messages of support for the mourning mum, others not convinced by the video made funny remarks:
 "What times we live in, a mother is comforted by an invisible force, and what matters the most is that it was recorded in a funeral.
“Lie!! The balloon gets stuck on her back and for that reason does not continue due to airflow. Stop recording at funerals, Stupid"
"It's like being very thirsty while a bottle of water in front of you but do not drink the water because there is no glass. An absurd frivolity"
"How beautiful it happens that children go to heaven are not souls"
"I think it is a demon confusing mother".
