Your experience is because good luck Jonathan and tinubu they both want you to experience pain. Because good luck Jonathan is from Nigeria while tinubu is from the north. He is not Yoruba.. Tinubu and good luck want you to pay. Taxes to Nigeria where they both come from but international law says. Nobody in Benin most pay any taxes to Nigeria. This is why you are poor in Benin because good luck Jonathan and tinubu are not from western Nigeria and they are making you pay taxes. And mooyou should stop paying Nigeria taxes in Benin. It is illegal .

Politics / Re: Photos: Pls Be The Judge(akpabio Vs Ameachi's Stadium) by dabrake(m): 1:02am On Nov 10, 2014
oh please!!! grin grin grin nobody is arguing about quality here. the akwaibom stadium is of far better quality than the AA stadium. fact! But what we are saying is that the AA sports complex has more value for rivers people than akwaibom stadium has for akwaibom people.

if you want to know what the akwa stadium will look like in future,look at the national stadiums in abuja and lagos.

the AA stadium is a complex where young budding rivers athletes will be groomed for upcoming tournaments like the national sports festival,common wealth games and the olympics WHILE AT THE SAME TIME, attracting the needed development to greater PH.

the AA stadium is obviously more functional.
SMH. So much for the APC guys that they go off trajectory while trying so hard to defend a diehard thief.

Politics / B’haram Denies Me Of Success – Gaidam by dabrake(m): 11:26pm On Nov 03, 2014
YOBE State Governor Ibrahim Gaidam said he would have achieved all he set out to achieve when he was sworn in as governor if not for the eruption of the Boko Haram insurgency.

The governor however said that he had been able to record a 90 per cent achievement, despite the insurgency.

Gaidam gave an account of his stewardship at the gathering of the All Progressives Congress on Saturday, where he was announced as the sole governorship candidate of the party for the 2015 election.

He lamented that insurgency had taken over the state since 2011 thus inflicting on the state enormous losses of lives and property, citing instances of about 215 government school buildings destroyed by the insurgency.

Gaidam said, “This unfortunate event has slowed down the execution of our policies and programmes. The resources we commit to support the prosecution of the war against the insurgents have affected the execution of our capital projects.

“Some of the areas of support to security agencies include provision of over 300 Hilux vehicles, payment of over N250m monthly as allowances alone, fuelling and repairs of security vehicles, assistance to the families of security personnel killed in action, and the payment of medical bills of those of them who sustain various degrees of injury in the fight with insurgents.”

Politics / Tambuwal: APC Reps Head For Court Today by dabrake(m): 11:17pm On Nov 03, 2014
The horse-trading over the defection of the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, continues on Monday (today) with the All Progressives Congress Caucus in the House heading for the court to stop the plot by the Peoples Democratic Party to force the speaker out of office.

The APC Caucus Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila, dropped the hint just as The PUNCH learnt on Sunday that the PDP national leadership had summoned the party’s members in the House to an emergency meeting on Monday (today). It was gathered that meeting which will hold at the Wadata Plaza headquarters of the party was to further fine tune the strategies for booting out Tambuwal.

Gbajabiamila said, “We are ready for the PDP and all those people. They have their plans; we have our own as well.

“Our prayers in court will be similar in a way to those sought by the speaker, but different in other ways. Everything will be in black and white; we are coming out with a statement soon after filing our case.”

APC Reps are also expected to hold a meeting today (Monday) at their party’s national secretariat in Abuja.

Chairman, House Committee on Justice, Mr. Ahmad Ali, said, “We are holding our meeting; PDP will hold theirs too as I hear.”

The Speaker, who on October 28 announced his defection , had on Friday filed a suit before the Federal High in Abuja asking it to halt any plan by the PDP to remove him from office.

He also challenged the power of the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Suleiman Abba, to withdraw his security aides on the grounds of the provisions of Section 68(1)(g) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

The PUNCH gathered that the reported plan by the PDP caucus to reconvene the House on Tuesday (tomorrow) may not materialise.

Tambuwal had adjourned the House to December 3 soon after he announced his defection . But the PDP, expressing displeasure over the speaker’ defection, had reportedly directed it caucus to resume legislative proceedings under the leadership of the Deputy Speaker, Mr. Emeka Ihedioha.

However, as of Sunday, there were no indications that lawmakers would return to the chambers on Tuesday (tomorrow).

Although investigations showed that no member of the House had been communicated with the matter, PDP lawmakers were summoned to the Wadata Plaza national headquarters of the party for an emergency meeting with PDP leaders on Monday(today).

Findings showed that the meeting would likely take a position on the exact action the party PDP wanted its lawmakers to take.

When contacted on the possibility of the House reconvening on Tuesday, the Deputy House Majority Leader, Mr. Leo Ogor, replied that the PDP was yet to take a concrete stand on the issue.

He said, “The PDP lawmakers will meet on Monday (today); invitations have been sent out. So, we are going to the meeting. The party will take a position; everything depends on what will be the party’s position.”

Asked if the caucus would go ahead to reconvene the House if directed to do so by the PDP leadership, Ogor advised The PUNCH to wait for the position of the party.

It was gathered that the PDP might have chosen to thread softly on the matter since Tambuwal had asked for the protection of the judiciary.

Investigations also showed that the PDP caucus would be in a “tight corner” reconvening the House without involving the leaders of other caucuses in the House.

The Standing Orders of the House provide that the speaker can only reconvene the House in consultation with the caucus leaders.

Order V(18), sections 1 and 2 of the Standing Orders states, “Whenever the House shall stand adjourned to a date not fixed and it is represented to the Speaker by the leaders of the political parties in the House that the House shall meet on a certain day at a certain time, the Speaker shall give notice accordingly and the House shall meet on the date and at the time stated in the notice.

“Whenever the House stands adjourned either to a date fixed by Resolution or Rule of the House, and it is represented by the leaders of the political parties in the House to the Speaker that the public interest requires that the House should meet on an earlier or a later date or time than that on which it stands adjourned, the speaker may give notice accordingly, and the House shall meet on the date and at the time stated in the notice.”

The APC caucus has already stated that it has no intention of calling for such a meeting or attending any.

A member of the caucus said, “Of course, you don’t expect Tambuwal, in these circumstances, to oblige any call to reconvene the House or agree to sit with caucus leaders for the purpose of reconvening the House.

“He is the speaker, he adjourned the House till December 3. You expect him to overrule himself mid-way to please the PDP?”

When contacted, Gbajabiamila said , “Our rules are very clear on this. If the House is to be reconvened, I should know. I am a party leader; going by the provisions of our rules.

“So, I know that we adjourned to resume on December 3.”

Meanwhile, more reactions have continued to follow the withdrawal of the security aides of Tambuwal and the threat by the PDP to ensure his removal if he fails to resign as speaker.

Those who spoke on the developments on are a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana; the Buhari Campaign Organisation, Kwara State Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed and Senator Magnus Abe.

While Falana asked the acting IG, Suleiman Abba, to resign for his partisan roles, the BCO said the reactions of the PDP-led Federal Government and the Police to Tambuwal’s defection signposted the danger ahead of the general elections.

The SAN reminded Abba in a letter that the treatment meted out to the speaker was never given to a number of political office holders who defected from other parties to the PDP.

He said the IG’s actions and utterances had “exposed the police to unwarranted ridicule as Nigerians are not unaware of the fact that when the Ondo State legislators elected on the platform of the Labour Party defected to the PDP last month.”

He recalled that the security details of the speaker of the state House of Assembly, Jumoke Akindele, were not withdrawn when she led her colleagues to dump the LP for the PDP.

Falana said, “In the same vein, Ahmadu Fintiri, the Speaker of the Adamawa State House of Assembly and his colleagues defected from the PDP to the APC and have since returned to the PDP.

“You did not have cause to declare their seats vacant. Neither have you withdrawn the security details of the Fintiri.”

Also, the BCO Coordinator in Ondo State, Bola Ilori, said the role of the police in Tambuwal’s defection posed a threat to democracy and the unity of Nigeria.

Ilori told journalists in Akure on Saturday that the Nigerian Police as a creation of the constitution, belonged to the Nigerian people irrespective of their political affiliation.

Like Falana, he said, “It is a known fact that the Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly defected from the LP to the PDP this same month without the police striping her of her security details.

“This act of withdrawing the security details of the speaker, House of Representatives without a court order is a proof that the Nigerian police under the current IG portrays the force as the armed wing of the PDP.

“One wonders why the police had to adopt a different approach when a high official like the fourth citizen of Nigeria who defected from the PDP to the APC.”

In Ilorin, Kwara State Governor Ahmed said the action of the police amounted to a usurpation of the duties of the judiciary.

Ahmed spoke during the swearing-in of members of the reconstituted Kwara State Judicial Service Commission.

The governor said in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Abdulwahab Oba, that, “It is the business of the judiciary and not that of any other arm or organ of government to interpret laws of the land and the legal implication of political action such as cross carpeting.”

Also, Abe said even though the PDP was working through the back door to have Tambuwal impeached, he was sure that “nobody can remove him.”

He added during the launch of the sensitisation campaign for the collection of permanent voter cards in Bera, Gokana Local Government Area on Saturday, that the PDP did not have 240 lawmakers in the House to be able to effect the removal of the speaker

The lawmaker said, “The only way they can remove him is if they can garner 240 votes on the floor of the House. The PDP cannot get that number of lawmakers in the House to remove him. As you are aware, the speaker has left the PDP to join our party for the same reasons that made us to leave the PDP for the APC.

“People are leaving because there is no justice, integrity and honesty in what they are doing in the PDP. People are leaving the PDP because they do not abide by the rules that we all have agreed to govern our actions.”

Politics / Mubi Battle: Army Arrests Six Senior Officers For Fleeing by dabrake(m): 11:05pm On Nov 03, 2014
Six military commanders, including an injured Lieutenant Colonel, have been arrested by the military for withdrawing from Mararaba, Michika, Madagali, Mubi and later Vimtim when Boko Haram insurgents attacked the communities last week.

It was learnt that an unspecified number of soldiers were also in detention for allegedly abandoning the communities, thereby making it easy for the insurgents to have an upper hand.

A reliable military source, who made this known in Abuja on Sunday, said the movement of five of the commanders had been restricted to the officers mess in a military formation.

The source, who did not name the military formation, because of security reason, added that “one of them, a Leutenant Colonel is receiving treatment at the MRS in Yola for serious injuries he sustained when the car in which he was escaping with somersaulted several times.”

He said the injured officer would join his colleagues in the officers mess on recovery.

Our source said, “Today (Sunday), the military authorities arrested five commanders around the Mubi axis of Adamawa State. The sixth is a Lt. Col.

“Some of those arrested were at Mararaba, Madagali, Michika and other locations. I think the military leaders are saying that the soldiers did not resist the Boko Haram when they invaded the place.”

Our source explained that the Defence authorities had already commenced investigations into the activities of all its personnel in relation with the capture of Mubi, the second largest town in Adamawa State and other supposedly “fortified locations,” including Vimtim, the home town of the Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh.

The insurgents had reportedly burnt Badeh’s residence, a clinic and a civic centre in the community on Thursday.

The source explained that the military authorities were determined to find out why the Boko Haram’s advance in the state was not resisted by the troops.

He said the military chiefs were of the opinion that the “tactical withdrawal” of the soldiers from their positions was nothing but a “display of indiscipline and cowardice which would not be tolerated.”

Our correspondents gathered that it was the military authority’s conviction that enough weapons and men were deployed in Mubi and other locations to frustrate the any attack by the insurgents.

On Thursday, the Minister of Defence, Lt.Gen. Aliyu Gusau; the Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh and the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Kenneth Minimah, declined to speak with journalists on issues relating to the capture of Mubi and the other communities by the insurgents.

When contacted on the issue, the Director of Defence Information, Maj.-Gen Chris Olukolade, said, “Anyone found to have undermined the ongoing operation will face appropriate sanctions and this is well known to all military personnel.”

Another source, who confided in one of our correspondents, said soldiers had a grueling encounter on Sunday with insurgents at Bladeba about one and half kilometers from Mubi.

He said the soldiers were able to take over some of the checkpoints captured by the insurgents.

It was also learnt that some of the insurgents in control of Mubi were moving towards Hildi to avoid aerial bombardments.

Akpabio is the SS governor. You need to see how the first lady humiliated her. But for the pleas from her fellow colleagues, I wonder what the first lady would have done. It was very embarrassing. Ini. It is not news.
