Politics / Re: Magodo: ‘Lagos Should Have Implemented S’court Verdict Since 2012’, Malami Slams by austinvsb: 11:43pm On Jan 05, 2022

It is very wrong and mischievous of the PUNCH news papers to claim the CSP defied the governor. This is because it is impossible to disobey someone who is not in a position to give you orders. Governor Sanwo-Olu is not in the CSP's chain of command

Governor Sanwo-Olu is just a Big Bad Bully that got put in his place by a more intelligent person.

I have to commend the CSP for bravery, intelligence and brilliance with the way he handled the Big Bad Bully called Governor Sanwo-Olu.

The gallant CSP practically schooled Sanwo-Olu on administrative procedures.


Thanks to the video of that your 'gallant' csp, state Police and resource control just gained even more momentum and support in the South.

Keep at it and you guys will make disintegration VERY popular in the South.

What the CSP did was the correct thing, he was on official assignment from the IG and only the IG can cancel such assignment.
Are you now saying governor's can order police, DSS and military from arresting criminals undecided
Was it not the same Sanwo Olu, that said he can't order the police or military during the Lekki protest undecided

You are deliberately being obtuse I see. We are faulting the whole system that empowers a CSP to disregard an elected governor but you are talking tapa! A system that was put in place by the military regime by the way!

Come of it my friend. Think for once!

SanwoOlu overstepped his boundaries and he was rightfully disrespected

The chief security officer of a state overstepped his boundaries by ordering down a security officer officer whose operation he was unaware of? You Malami Minions really do have shit for brains lol


This excerpt from the article says it all but I don't expect dolts to understand

...If the purported Chief Security Officers of the States of the Federation require clearance from the office of the IG on matters within their areas of jurisdictions, only hypocrites will wonder why the current security crisis deepens and there appears to be no solution in the foreseeable future.

It is a lost cause discussing this issue with you as you don't even understand the basics of law.
Let me know when you are properly educated.

Had the same feeling reading through your brouhaha stating that the chief security officer of a state need not be informed about a security operation in his domain.

A governor need not be aware of any law enforcement operation and stopping it should actually be a crime
as it is in organised countries with federal and state police.

Neither governors or presidents are gods with unlimited power.
Even dictatorship tyrants don't interfere in all civil cases.

The police, judiciary and others are supposed to be independent from external interference
while carrying out their lawful duties. They do not need the governor or the president's permission
to do their job.


A chief security officer is not above the law and neither does he has the right.
You should even be afraid that a mere man can scuttle
your justice even if you win in court.

The government stole people's land and sold it to their friends.
The court returns the land back to the owner and the police are enforcing
the judgement according to the power granted to them by the constitution.
All you and others could do is support the thieves and bring up various excuses
to justify denial of justice.

With your mindset, I am afraid for the future!

CSP of police command Abuja came to Magodo Lagos to demolish buildings without the knowledge/authority from the Lagos state government even when the governor is the chief security officer and the matter has nothing to do with the police in Abuja


A police officer CSP on order of IGP arguing vehemently/disrespectful with SanwoOlu, a sitting Governor regarding Magodo imbroglio. This is why state police is better!

Mayor of Calgary controls Calgary Police. Why would IGP in Abj be giving order in a matter in Lagos? State Police as practiced in proper federations is the only way to go now!


Edit - The police raided the premises of a Supreme Court Justice......they said Malami sent them. Malami denied it.

Similar issues have now happened in Magodo.....police say Malami sent them but he denies it....

Maybe there's another Malami that we've not been told about....

You are amplifying my point! Not only was the governor unaware of this operation in his state, he also couldn't stop it! How then is he supposed to guarantee any form of security to the people that voted him in as the chief security officer of the state?!!

We are talking about the highest court in Nigeria. The governor is not above the supreme court judgment, not even the president.

The supreme Court did not give the order for the policemen to be there at this particular time. The governor wasn't notified of their operation, and when he confronted them as the CSO and asked the officers to stand down, they refused! That is absolute Madness!

I don't like the way Malami behaves but there was a supreme court judgment which have to be implemented.

Those lands was forcefully taken from the rightful owners, and it should be return.

The right or wrong of the judgement is not any of my business. The issue for me is what transpired in that video. The governor of a state (who doubles as the chief security officer of that state) ordered a CSP to stand down, and he blatantly disregarded him!

That is atrocious!!!

BlackFlamefromP:
At the present state of our evolution as a people, it is better, for Nigeria's unity, that the federal government be the only one with a legitimate monopoly of violence! Meaning, the only one who should be in control of the Armed Forces, the police and any other armed agency the law recognizes. Even Though the FG do abuse its power from time to time it's still better for Nigeria's unity that the FG has a monopoly of violence.

Without having to blow long grammar, I believe anybody with a good brain can see what would happen if state governments start having their own police force or any armed agency for that matter! The abuse of power would be unimaginable.




Your post is filled with projections of what may be. ZERO sound arguments for why state Police will lead to the imaginations in your head.

Present cogent reasons why governors of States can't be in charge of the security of their constituents as seen in other sane climes... You aren't talking with 12-year olds here, so stop trying to manipulate with fear of 'what-will-be' like a fake pastor.

How can a governor assure his residents of safety when he can't even give orders to the security officers in the state!

PS - Malami Minions are trying to divert the discussion to the supreme Court judgement rather than the real issue which is the ABSURDITY of the Governor of a state not being aware of a security operation in his domain and the CSP disregarding a direct order from him to stand down!

Wait until State governors start harassing and persecuting their perceived enemies with State police. Even in Countries like US State police and Federal agents often clash on jurisdiction and all, not to talk of Nigeria where everything seem to be upside down.

As bright and welcoming the idea is, I don't think we are mature enough as a country to have it, it will be grossly abused... State actors in power will see it as a weapon

And the federal government isn't already using its sole control of the armed forces to brutally impose it's will?? At least the governors are closer to their constituents and therefore can be directly held responsible for any abuse of power.

Lol. You are very funny.

Okay. How was the US able to partially cripple a big firm like HUAWEI, for example?

By simply limiting their access to critical technology. They are now threatening some Chinese firms with the same sanctions because of their support of China's maltreatment of the Uigyhur Muslims. They can sanction those companies because they rely on ameritech.

You talk about western propaganda and watching too much CNN and that's because the facts favour America.

But when America is ranked as one of the least safest countries in the world, in the same level as Nigeria, Pakistan, etc. Then it is no longer western propaganda but a fact to be believed, huh?

For tech, China doesn't even measure up to, say, S/Korea or Japan, not to talk of the United States.

The bolded part of your comment says all there is to know lol. I would indulge you but like a typical person that tries to boast about their knowledge, I see you are so engulfed in your world of falsehood & disinformation about china, owning to overconsumption of western anti-chinese Propaganda, there is really no point in engagement.

While I am not necessarily for their style of government, China is clear!

They have the largest population in the world (US + all of EU combined and extra), still they aren't trying to force their way of life, culture or politics on the world. Live your life, I live my own! That alone makes them endearing to me.

Also in terms of economy and infrastructure, abeg no one touches them!!! They are actually very interested in having the lifestyle and individual successes of Chinese people be the determinant of how big their economy is, not some fudged numbers by the overpriced stock valuation of the companies of a few persons.

Bigkoko:
THIS IS THE SIEGE FOR NOW!!


This hungry cow is not hungry because she has no food within her yard; neither is she hungry because she is incapable of generating enough food on her table. The simple truth is that, this cow is hungry because an iron-lock has been placed on her head to cover her mouth. At the same time, her children are threatened against their lives to accept what they obviously know to be unacceptable. Hence, the hungry cow we see today.

Sadly, those who milk Africa every day are not just greedy people who seek selfish benefit from her riches; they are also wicked monsters who join efforts to starve her so that they can derive happiness and pleasure from the sighting of her suffering and pain.

Let us start by giving deep considerations to the following: For more than 60 years of Independence, no African country is allowed to trade their naturally endowed resources in their own sovereign currencies to ensure that true values of those resources are translated into economic development and empowerment on the African continent.

Any attempt by any African leader to break this global economic system that has deliberately designed and instituted to keep Africa under unending poverty is either assassinated or removed from power, hence, the need for all power-holders on the African continent to be quiet while observing the future of the next generations destroyed in an arm-folding. The real threat did not start with Patrice Lumumba of DR Congo or Thomas Sankara of Burkina Faso; neither did it end with the sad removal and assassination of our dear Brother Gaddafi, all of us are victims and whoever sort to challenge this system need to be aware of the true consequence.

Today, the masses of Africa are made to believe that they are suffering because of the corrupt nature of their leaders, however, our under development is designed by something far greater than corruption. After all, corruption is even more abundant in the global system than it is on the African continent, I need not to start pointing direct fingers but I know very well what I am talking about.

Here is the real reason why Africa, with all her huge natural and human resources, continue to remain poor and may have to remain as such for a very long time:

When we (Africa) need a car or anything from the colonizers, we work hard to get their monies to pay for our wants; (this means that, whatever we demand from them, we exchange that with our labour which is of equal in value to what we are taking from them. This, in turn, creates value in their economies); when we fail to work in their economy to obtain their currencies, we only have the option of going to the global financial market to put more of our monies on the supply side to demand for their currencies to pay for such wants (when this happens, we create demand for their currencies as a commodity, and once demand for these currencies increases, the value of their currencies also increases), they then gain value on their currencies and we lose value in return.

On the other hand, when they (the World) need our valuable resources, we are told that, we need foreign exchange and as a result, we allow them to print their valueless papers (in a form of money) to exchange for our valuable resources (this means, they take away all our resources without creating any value in our economies).

Imagine, if Africa tell the world that “when you need our Gold, Diamond, Oil and so forth, you must pay for them in our African currencies”, this will mean that the wold will have to come and work on the African continent and create real value such as infrastructure and technology in order to get our currencies to demand for our valuable resources they cannot do without. Other than that, they have to go to the global financial market to demand for our currencies and this will mean that the value of our currencies will increase rather than the depreciation of exchange rates as we experience each day in every part of Africa.

At this stage, let me point out to you that, it costs less than 50 cents to print 100 Dollar or 100 Euros note, but it costs more than 100 dollars to mine 2g of gold from the ground. So how can we genuinely exchange 2g of gold for 50 cents if not for exploitation?

If we allow China, America the UK or whoever, to demand for our resources with their own paper money, we are basically saying that we have no control of those resources since these people can freely print any amount of those monies to take away those resources of ours. Our economy can generate true value from the huge resources we are endowed with only when our currencies are backed by these resources, and those resources are exchanged in our own sovereign currencies.

Truth must be told, if the worlds are allowed to print their monies to buy our resources then Africa must also be able to print our monies and use them to buy whatever we need from them. If not, then they must also come and work to get our money before using that to buy our resources like we also work for their monies to buy their resources.

We love Africa ❣️❣️❣️
