Politics / Those Threats Of Arrest Of Cny Leaders by flint59(m): 10:57am On Jun 10, 2017
On June 6, a Coalition of Northern Youths, CNY, led by one Alh Abdulazeez Suleiman, gave quit notice to Ndigbo to leave the North within three months. On June 7, the Gov of Kaduna State from where the ejection notice was announced condemned the act and directed the Police to arrest the leaders and sue them. Same day the Gov of Bornu State also condemned the action of CNY. On June 8, CNY came out fuming, insulting the two Govs and accusing them of politics opportunism. They again re-affirmed their quit notice warning that by Oct.1, 2017, they would not be ready to be part of any Nigeria that includes Ndigbo. The following day the IGP, Ibrahim Idris ordered his Commissioners and AIGs to ensure that the nation was not pushed into a turmoil. There have been condemnations of the CNY action from various quarters within and outside Nigeria but none from the presidency just as it has been mild with the killer Fulani herdsmen.
Ironically till date, neither the Police nor the "very efficient" and ubiquitous DSS has arrested Suleiman and his team despite their consistent public statements. I am beginning to wonder why DSS and the Police have not been able to catch the CNY guys. If it were the massacre of IPOB youth who were having peaceful protests, the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu for supporting the cause of Biafra, or of Ifeanyi Ubah for owing NNPC N12b while the corporation is owing him N16b, DSS will be very active. Knowing the mentality of these Northern youth who, based on their boldness, must have big guns behind them, they will carry out their threat before the govt knows it. So please can somebody who knows better tell me who is deceiving who.

Politics / “Go Get Your House In Order,” US Tells The Nigerian President by flint59(m): 7:27am On Jul 31, 2015
The concealed fragments of President Muhammad Buhari’s exorbitant visit to the United State are beginning to emerge, and stakes are not looking too good. Authentic sources reveal that the White House is completely disappointed about a total lack of preparedness by the Nigerian contingent to discuss vital issues about both countries. The Obama administration also decried a poor presentation of policy needs and updates made by the Nigerian leader. “May be we are not reading from the same script, but the overall message by Barack is that they should go get themselves together, then get back with us,” a White House insider told our newsroom. “We are just being polite about this because your President doesn’t seem to understand a whole lot about government,” confided another source.
The White House was disappointed that Buhari’s contingent had no presentation about working with the United States to salvage their crumbly economy. For instance, the Nigeria’s economy under Buhari has no prospects at the moment. The currency’s exchange values is worsening while the President visited without any economic crew. Nigeria has a mono-economy that is dependent largely on oil, and the United States has since suspended oil importation from Nigeria. US imports from Nigeria, mostly crude oil and other petroleum products, rose from more than 24 billion dollars in 2005 to over 38 billion in 2008, but dropped sharply to less than four billion last year largely because of America's shale energy revolution. Yet President Buhari rendered no concerns about the impending economic consequence of these developments.
Weeks before the visit, the U.S. had communicated the significance of the visit as an opportunity to the Buhari’s regime to boot up the relations between the two countries. Under Jonathan’s administration for instance, U.S. relations with Nigeria dropped, with officials raising concerns about the government’s ability to fight Boko Haram, particularly after the kidnapping of some 200 Nigerian schoolgirls. “We informed them early enough and even asked to assist them to make considerable argument to earn exceptional U.S. support to the regime, especially in areas of security and commerce, but they blew it,” another source confided.
To make it worse, President Buhari shocked his hosts with his vastly publicized comment that the US has "aided and abetted" the Boko Haram Islamist militant group by refusing to provide weapons to Nigeria. This comment, it was gathered angered some members of the Obama administration who now raise doubts about President Buhari’s earnestness in collaborating with the U.S. in solving his security problems.
Another blunder was made when President’s Buhari, in defense of his cabinet-selection delays, published an op-ed in Washington Post, wrongly accusing President Obama of equally delaying his cabinet selection in the initial stage of taking office. Wrote Buhari, “It is worth noting that Obama himself did not have his full Cabinet in place for several months after first taking office; the United States did not cease to function in the interim.”
“I don’t know where he got that information,” said Oshiokpekhai Utu-Orbih, a Nigerian attorney and writer based in the United States. “I am still trying to come in terms with the rationale of the above statement in the said article other than the fact that President Buhari has gone to press to lie against his host in a bid to justify his dictatorial rule over Nigeria,” Utu-Orbih said.
Utu-Orbih wrote in his own column, “After the historic election of 2008, Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America on January 20, 2009. On January 21, he appointed Hilary Clinton as Secretary of State; on February 2, 2009, he appointed Eric Holder as Attorney General, then Ken Salazar as Secretary of Interior on 20th January 20. Obama continued with Tom Vislack, Agriculture January 21; Ray LaHood , Transportation January 23; Stephen Chu, Energy, January 20, and Janet Napolitano, Homeland Security, January 21. I can go on and on. Must Buhari rewrite the American history because of his disdain for constitutionality?”
President Buhari had reportedly stormed the U.S. with about 229-man delegation considered the biggest in Nigerian democratic history. This contingent it was gathered, cost Nigeria about N2.2billion. Most disappointedly, the list of delegates and their level of preparedness created more doubts about the President’s commitment to issues of foreign policy and commerce: a claim echoed in Buhari’s speech during the visit - a poorly composed treatise, substantially lacking, with no connections to the objectives of his exorbitant diplomatic voyage. Obama ceremoniously praised his guest, stating that he would discuss how the two nations can cooperate on counter-terrorism and how the US “can be helpful in addressing some of the corruption issues that have held Nigeria back”. But his message also signaled a "no-deal" agreement until Buhari brings forth a credible request for collaboration and assistance, or show some seriousness in handling his current mandate.

Politics / Buhari Under Pressure To Disband DSS, Nigeria’s Secret Police. by flint59(m): 6:44am On Jun 24, 2015
President Muhammadu Buhari has come under intense pressure from various security top brass to disband the Department of State Services (DSS), Nigerian Secret Police. This is due to the alleged infamous role the once prestigious institution played in futile attempt to truncate democracy.

Top security sources who spoke to the leadership of Igbo Mandate Congress (IMC) on conditions of anonymity said that there are four groups that want the DSS to be overhauled. The first group believes that the DSS should be disbanded out rightly and its operatives absorbed into the Nigerian Police Force, if they so wish.

The second group wants the DSS to be another department within the Nigerian Army, complementing the DMI, just as the Road Safety (FRSC) was forced to be under the Nigerian Police for a while before public outcry delivered them.

The third pressure group believes that President Buhari should sideline and render them redundant, starved of funds and made irrelevant while the fourth group wants a complete overhaul of the leadership of the body, and the sack of about forty officers identified as acting in manners inimical to the security of the nation.

Reeling out the sins of the DSS, the security sources told the leadership of Igbo Mandate Congress (IMC) that the DSS has a hand in the failed attempt to assassinate President Buhari last year. Other alleged misconduct of the DSS include:

1. Conniving with agents of terrorism by withholding sensitive information that there is a plot assassinate Muhammadu Buhari while the later was on his way from Abuja to Katsina, an event that led to the death of over 100 Nigerians in Kawo Area of Kaduna State in July, 2014

2. Conniving with agents of terrorism to withhold information that there is an attempt to checkmate the excesses of the Emir of Kano, HRH Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, by allowing agents of terrorism to attack Kano Central Mosque in November, 2014, leading to death of over 200 persons

3. Bugging all the telephones lines , email and spying on prominent opposition leaders especially Muhammadu Buhari, Bola Tinubu, Rotimi Amechi, Rabiu Kwqakwanso, Nasir El Rufai among others and using the information so obtained as instruments of political blackmail.

4 Labelling Muhammadu Buhari and leaders of the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) as sponsors of Boko Haram while intelligence sources proves contrary.

5 Deploying operatives in Anambra State to ensure that the APC Gubernatorial candidate , Dr Chris Ngige, was rigged out by ensuring that election materials never reached the strongholds of the former governor, thereby denying the APC a strong foothold in South East

6. Deploying operatives of the DSS to help the PDP rig out Governor Fayemi of Ekiti State, thereby denying the APC another victory at the polls

7. Deploying the same apparatus in Osun State, an act vehemently resisted by the masses.. Deploying masked security men round the capital of Osun State in such a manner that portrayed them as terrorists.

8. Making spurious claims that the opposition APC has hacked into INEC date base, a claim the electoral umpire disclaimed. Based on such spurious claims, raiding the Lagos State Headquarters of the APC and carting away confidential files, all in an attempt to blackmail and intimidate the opposition.

9. Detaining the contractor who printed the PVC Card Reader without due process, until days after the elections were over

10. Producing, through the unethical release of classified information, documentaries meant to tarnish the image of Muhammadu Buhari and Bola Tinubu and causing such to be aired on electronic media.

11. Stripping naked and forcing Pastor Musa Dikwa to write a letter of apology to leader of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), ,Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, for claiming that some pastors were given N7 billion naira to initiate hate campaigns against the person of Muhammadu Buhari.

12 Initiating, suggesting, contacting and making plans to truncate democracy in the event of a Buhari victory at the polls by making arrangements and contacts for a possible Interim Government.

13. Making contingency plans that in case the interim government option sails through, those marked as strong resistance to be eliminated by the strike force.

14 Giving undue security covering to Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, known Boko Haram Sponsor

Therefore, a highly disappointed Buhari was said not to be disposed to working with a set of people who are brazen in their attempt to truncate democracy, when they are established to protect the state. That was why he rejected a recent attempt to post about 234 operatives to the Villa, and also rejected attempts to post a new person to him as the CSO. The DSS have also not been privy to sensitive security briefings since Buhari was sworn in.

Igbo Mandate Congress cannot verify the veracity of these information and the culpability of the DSS as alleged, however, contacts and friends of the group, especially in Kano, Abuja, Borno , Yobe, Bauchi, Jigawa, Sokoto, Kaduna States and some parts of the north have from time to time, especially at the peak of Boko Haram attacks shared intelligence with agents of the DSS and their response has been proactive.

During the spates of bombings in Igbo dominated Sabon Gari and other parts of Kano, IMC coordinators received and released intelligence information to relevant DSS quarters either directly or through concerned prominent citizens,and their responses helped to stem the tide of terrorism in Kano and some parts of the north.

IMC is aware of the professional role DSS played in snuffing terrorism out of Abuja, Kogi, Kaduna and forestalling possible spillovers in the South East and South West States. The arrest of kabiru Sokoto, Abu Qaqa and other leaders of Boko Haram at the earlier stages are due to their professional dexterity

However, IMC recalled that at the peak of planned invasion of Borno by the insurgents earlier in the year, one of their coordinators made contacts with a top government official to obtain permission to mobilize few thousand Igbo Youth to join their northern volunteers and hunters to fight the terrorists. This topmost government official, who sees former President Jonathan on a daily basis, after audience with the then President, asked our coordinator to work with ex Governor Ali Modu Sheriff.

IMC believes that Ali Modu Sheriff is a sponsor of Boko Haram and will not have anything to do with him, and therefore discontinued with the discussion. However, on inquiry at why a Boko Haram founder will be asked to work with volunteers, IMC were told that the DSS security reports exonerated him of such allegations.

IMC believes that the DSS was able to show rare professionalism in some aspects of its war against Boko Haram, and as such does not deserve outright disbandment and these views were disseminated to the complaining security quarters. However, IMC is aware that the DSS was unduly sympathetic to a continuation of the President Jonathan regime, which is divergent from the views of IMC, which prefers and supported a change of guard.

Igbo Mandate Congress, known worldwide as a stakeholder in the ‘Change’ being celebrated in Nigeria today, participated in ensuring that Igbos in the North rejected some directives from some Ohanaeze and compromised Igbo leaders to vote for the expired “Transformational Agenda” .

The Director General of Igbo Mandate Congress, Rev Obinna Akukwe condemned publicly the assassination attempt on Buhari and fingered those he termed as ‘PDP Boko Haram Members’ as being behind the plot to kill the then opposition leader and plunge Nigeria into another civil war. However, it does not have information of the culpability of the DSS in the event.
