Politics / Rivers Rerun: INEC Panel Indicts Security by zik4ever: 9:15am
A report of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on the December 10, 2016 rerun legislative elections in Rivers State has indicted security operatives who participated in the poll.

The report of the administrative enquiry into the rerun election, set up by the Commission, detailed how security operatives engaged in snatching of electoral materials, intimidation of voters and deliberately refusal to accompany electoral officers to their duty posts.

Security operatives were accused of having actively participated in electoral offences. Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike had written a petition against security agencies.

With the INEC report, he has been vindicated.

The INEC report said: “As part of preparations for the elections, the entire 23 Electoral Officers (EOs) in the state were replaced with new ones from Plateau, Anambra and Oyo states. They all reported in Rivers State on November 28, 2016 and were posted accordingly to the local government areas.

“Reposting of EOs was rather late, making it difficult for them to understand the environment and prepare adequately for the elections…

“One of the low points of the Rivers rerun elections of December 10, 2016 was the flagrant intervention of security operatives in the process. This was widely identified by staff of the Commission and independent observers alike, as one major factor that led to the failure of the process in some local government areas. There were too many security agencies involved in the process, outside the framework of the Interagency Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES).

“It was not clear whether many of them were acting as part of their various organisations or as groups and individuals serving political interests. Most importantly, many of them showed profound political partisanship.

“Ironically, security operatives, who were expected to protect the process, turned on it. There were reported cases of wilful obstruction of the process by security operatives, including snatching of materials and intimidating voters. In other cases, they refused to accompany and protect men and materials for elections.

“But, the most mind-boggling were cases of hostage-taking, hijack of materials and physical attacks on INEC officials perpetrated by security operatives. Of singular note was a certain policeman named Akin Fakorede, who ostensibly is a commander of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), in Rivers .

“Fakorede first tried to lure INEC staff to travel with him from Port Harcourt to Emohua LGA, under the pretext of enabling them to collate results.

“But, for the intervention of National Commissioners, we suspect that he would have put our staff in harm’s way. When he failed in his initial bid, he stalked the INEC officials to the collation centre in Port Harcourt and physically assaulted Dr. C. Odekpe and Mrs. Mary Tunkayo. In fact, Dr. Odekpe ended up with a gash on his head and both spent days at the Air Force hospital in Port Harcourt.

“The security situation was worsened in some areas by the activities of political thugs and militants. Etche, Akoku-Toru and Emohua are examples of areas where both the security operatives and the militants caused serious mayhem…”

On alleged partisanship of INEC staff, the report said “there were very credible allegations that members of staff at the INEC office in Port Harcourt were split between the two main political parties in the state, namely, the ruling PDP and the APC.

The report stated: “It was clear that confidential information, including documents, was routinely leaked to political parties from the INEC office.

“The REC, Administrative Secretary and several EOs, in their depositions to this committee, confirmed these widespread accusations of partisanship. Among other things, this created a deep crisis of confidence that affected administration of election.”

Meanwhile, INEC said it was yet to receive the official report of the police investigative panel on the December 10, 2016, legislative rerun elections in Rivers.

The commission’s Director of Voter Education and Publicity, Mr. Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

The panel’s report, submitted to police authorities on February 7, 2017, indicted 23 electoral officers for allegedly collecting monetary inducements to rig the elections.

Out of over N360 million said to have been received by the INEC personnel, the panel publicly displayed N111 million which it recovered from the officials who participated in the polls.

Islam for Muslims / Re: Imam Ibnul Qoyyim Al-jawziyyah by AbuuBilaal(m): 9:14am
If a heart becomes attached to anything other than Allah, Allah makes him dependent on what he is attached to. And he will be betrayed by it.
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya

A person’s tongue can give you the taste of his heart.
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya

Patience is that the heart does not feel anger towards that which is destined and that the mouth does not complain.
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya

There are six stages to knowledge: Firstly: Asking questions in a good manner. Secondly: Remaining quiet and listening attentively. Thirdly: Understanding well. Fourthly: Memorising. Fifthly: Teaching. Sixthly- and it is its fruit: Acting upon the knowledge and keeping to its limits.
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya

When Allah granted Prophet Yoosuf (`alayhis-Salaam) physical beauty it caused him to be locked up in the prison; but when Allah granted him knowledge (when he interpreted the dream of the king) it not only took him out of prison, but elevated his rank in society, clearly showing us the virtue of knowledge and that physical beauty does not mean anything.
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya

Truly in the heart there is a void that can not be removed except with the company of Allah. And in it there is a sadness that can not be removed except with the happiness of knowing Allah and being true to Him. And in it there is an emptiness that can not be filled except with love for Him and by turning to Him and always remembering Him. And if a person were given all of the world and what is in it, it would not fill this emptiness.
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya

Be sincere in your aim and you will find the support of Allaah surrounding you.
Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya
Politics / Re: This Is Treason!: Gov. Ayodele Fayose Time Is Up! by Samunique(m): 9:14am
When an elected governor of a state of the Federal Republic of Nigeria comes out on television (AIT) to tell the whole world he did not want a democratically elected president then he has overstepped his bounds constitutionally.

Speaking to Gbenga Aruleba on Tuesday (21/2/17) on Focus Nigeria, the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose expressly stated that he did not want Buhari from the onset. When asked by Gbenga Aruleba that even after his (Buhari) being democratically elected? The Ekiti governor replied he did not want him even now!

Definitely this response by Fayose is nothing but a rebellious pronouncement on a live TV programme. This is Treason!

It is over to the DSS and other security agencies to let Gov. Ayodele Fayose know that his immunity does not cover rebellious pronouncement to a democratically elected president.

Enough is enough.

Olodo @OP.

Treason ko prison ni.

RULES of 2017 Daytona 500

2017 Daytona 500 Qualifier Format:

59th Daytona 500 qualifying:
Qualifying for the Daytona 500 is scheduled for 3:10 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 19 on Fox, but only the front row will be set through the first round of Daytona’s unique qualifying format. The front row will be determined through single-lap time-trial runs, with the rest of the field to be set through the Duel qualifying races on Feb. 23.

The qualifying format for the Daytona 500 is unique and can be a bit confusing. However, the folks at NASCAR.com have done a pretty good job of breaking down the multi-stage process. We’ll summarize the format here.

On Sunday, the first two positions in the race—the front row—will be determined via single-car qualifying. There will be two rounds here, with the 12 fastest cars from Round 1 advancing to Round 2. The two fastest cars in the second round will earn the No. 1 and No. 2 spots at Daytona.

The Can-Am Duels also feature two rounds of qualifying, and these will determine slots 3-38 for Daytona. The qualifying cars from the first Duel will line up on the inside row in the Daytona 500, while the qualifiers from the second Duel will line up on the outside row for the race.

The last two spots for the race will be given to the top two top open teams from the single-car stage that didn’t qualify in the Can-Am Duels.

This will make up the 40-car field for Daytona.
New Race Rules

There are some interesting new rules surrounding the Daytona 500 this season. As will be the case with all races in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series this year, there will be three stages to the actual race, with points being awarded after each.
Kenny Bruce of NASCAR.com does an excellent job of breaking down how the point system will work with multiple stages:

Upon the completion of each of the first two stages, drivers finishing first through 10th will be awarded additional points (10th for first, nine for second, etc.) that will be included in their final total for that race only. Additionally, one point per stage win will be awarded to those drivers qualifying for the 10-race playoff at the end of the season. Race-winning drivers also will earn five bonus points per win to be applied following the completion of the regular season.
For Daytona, there will be two 60-lap stages, followed by an 80-lap final stage.

According to NASCAR senior vice president Scott Miller, Daytona’s stages were specifically set at 40 percent, 40 percent and 60 percent in order to play to the excitement of the race.

“We had to kind of set the stages to where they landed as far away from a fuel window as they possibly could—so the teams could either make it to the stage finish or guaranteed that they would have to stop before they made it to the stage finish so we wouldn’t turn these races into fuel-mileage races,” Miller explained, per Bob Pockrass of ESPN. com.

Other new rules at Daytona this year impact how cars can be repaired during the race. Cars may no longer go to the garage to fix damage. Instead, they’re given a five–minute window to fix damage on pit road. If repairs take longer than five minutes or require more than six crew members to fix the damage, the car will be pulled from the race.

New body components, such as panels, will not be allowed to be used. Cars will be allowed to visit the repair garage to fix mechanical or electrical issues that were not the result of a collision.
