Politics / PANDORA PAPERS: Inside The Secret Deal Between Sambo Dasuki’s Family And A Billi by omoalaro: 7:44pm On Oct 13
PANDORA PAPERS: Inside the secret deal between Sambo Dasuki’s family and a billionaire govt. contractor


During the 37 months that Mr Dasuki lasted as NSA, Mr Adesanya had at least two knotty multibillion-dollar issues to resolve with the Nigerian government.
Sometime in 2013, Nigerian multi-billionaire businessman, Leno Adesanya, approached a secrecy seller in the British Virgin Islands, Trident Trust Company Limited, to help family members of Sambo Dasuki, the National Security Adviser at the time, to register a shell company, Hydropower Investments Limited.

In the documentation submitted for the company’s incorporation, Mr Adesanya indicated that Hydropower Investment was set up to own real estate and investment portfolios.

The businessman also indicated that the company would, on behalf of the Dasuki family, hold 1.5 million shares in Sino Africa (Nigeria) Limited, a 19-year old company that has him (Adesanya) and a certain Uche Nwokedi as directors.

Hydropower Investments, company documents also showed, will also hold for the Dasukis 10 million shares in Sunrise Power & Transmission (Nigeria) Co. Limited, a company that is locked in a long-drawn dispute with the Nigerian government over the Mambilla power project. The legal dispute is stalling the key funding from the Chinese EXIM Bank to execute the Mambilla project, an ambitious electricity generation infrastructure considered key to tackling Nigeria’s long-standing power sector crisis.

The shell company, Hydropower Investments, was registered on November 14, 2013, with Mr Adesanya and Abubakar Atiku Dasuki, a son of a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, as directors.

But while Mr Adesanya serves as the face of the company and uses his Lagos home as the contact address for the offshore firm, he holds no single share. The shareholders and ultimate beneficial owners of the company are Abubakar Atiku Dasuki, (17,000 shares), Hassan Sultan Dasuki (16,500 shares) and Asmau Iman Dasuki (16,500 shares). Abubakar was 31 years old at the time the company was established while Hassan and Asmau were 18.

The three shareholders are children of former NSA Dasuki, one of the most powerful figures in Nigeria at the time the company was incorporated, and awarded a combined 11.5million shares in Mr Adesanya’s companies — Sunrise and Sino Africa.

There is no evidence that Mr Dasuki or his children paid for the shares. When the registration agent, Trident Trust Company, sought to know how the shareholders sourced the funds with which they planned to acquire the assets, Mr Adesanya simply provided a vague response, telling them the assets would be “carried interest through a loan to be arranged by the sponsor (Leno Adesanya) of the project.”
The uncovering of Mr Adesanya’s offshore link with the Dasuki family came from Pandora Papers, a trove of 11.9 million leaked confidential records obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, ICIJ.


The ICIJ coordinated a team of 617 journalists from 150 news outlets, including PREMIUM TIMES, who spent two years poring through the leaked records, tracking down sources, and digging into court files and other public records from dozens of countries. It is the biggest collaboration of investigative journalists – from 117 countries and territories – in history.

The leaked records came from 14 offshore services firms from around the world that set up shell companies and other offshore nooks for clients like the Adesanyas and Dasukis, who seek to shroud their financial activities, often suspicious, in secrecy.

It remains unclear why Mr Adesanya would provide a loan to buy several million shares from his own companies in favour of the children of one of the country’s most powerful political personalities at the time.



Mr Adesanya. speaking through his representative, said he derived no favours from Mr Dasuki and added that “the children wanted to start doing business and they were advised by me to set up an offshore company for discretionary purposes.”

Illicit finance experts said roundabout schemes like that are sometimes designed to funnel bribes to compromised officials or to return favours already received or expected to come.

PREMIUM TIMES has no evidence that that was the case here, although Mr Dasuki was a key political officeholder in Nigeria at a time two of Mr Adesanya’s companies were seeking major favours from the Nigerian government.


Responding to an inquiry from PREMIUM TIMES, Mr Dasuki said, through a representative, he did not ask Mr Adesanya to register the company for his children. He said business people sometimes render unsolicited favours to government officials even without their knowledge.


He added that, moreover, his children were adults, who could make business decisions on their own.
Businessman Adesanya and a top Secret
However, Mr Adesanya appeared to have strategised hard to keep his business relationship with the Dasukis a top secret. For one, although the share transfer transaction was done about eight years ago, the businessman is yet to file documents at the Corporate Affairs Commission reflecting the new ownership structures of both Sunrise Power and Sino Africa. That has left the CAC in the dark about the changes.

Mr Adesanya has also continued to be the face of Hydropower Investments, remaining the main liaison between the registration agent and the company, and effectively shielding the Dasukis from being apparent in the running of the firm. His Lagos home is the main contact address of the company and his email contact is the official email address listed for the company.

The businessman left instructions with Trident Trust to hold on to all documents related to the company and that on no condition should the firm’s documents or correspondences be couriered to Nigeria, ostensibly so they are not intercepted by authorities.

In what also appeared a strategy to conceal the identity of the Dasuki kids, Mr Adesanya, in correspondences with Trident Trust, kept referring to them as his cousins. When he was asked to provide proof of address for the three shareholders, the businessman falsely claimed the Dasukis lived with him in his Lagos address and then provided a notarized document to back the claim.

Adesanya, Dasuki and multi-billion issues with government
Sambo Dasuki, a retired army colonel and father of the three Hydropower Investments shareholders, was appointed national security adviser on June 22, 2012, by then-President Goodluck Jonathan.

He remained in that influential position until July 2015, months after Mr Jonathan lost reelection when he was removed by President Muhammadu Buhari. While in office, Mr. Dasuki was immensely powerful, enjoyed unrestricted access to the presidential villa, and consistently had the president’s ears.

Those who related with Mr Dasuki during his term in office said he was mostly genial and approachable with a consistent desire to solve the problems, official and unofficial, of anyone able to reach him.

During the 37 months that Mr Dasuki lasted as NSA, Mr Adesanya had at least two knotty multibillion-dollar issues to resolve with the Nigerian government.

For about 20 years before the Jonathan government took charge, a business dispute had arisen between the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Lutin Investments Limited, a BVI company owned by Mr Adesanya and his family, over a contract for the supply of ocean vessels with equipment for the storage of petroleum products and related activities.

A Lutin Resolution
In 1993, Lutin and the NNPC submitted the dispute to international arbitration, which, in May 2007, ruled in favour of Lutin. The arbitrator ordered the NNPC to pay Lutin damages in the amount of $55,281,109, plus 10 percent compound interest; £20,480, plus 10 percent compound interest, and N4,692,930, plus 21 percent compound interest. The arbitrator added that all interest obligations must begin to accrue from July 7, 1993.
Mr Adesanya then approached the French Tribunal de Grande Instance on July 6, 2007, for recognition of the arbitration award. He succeeded. The NNPC then appealed to the Paris Court of Appeal. But on December 2, 2014, the court affirmed the decision of the Tribunal de Grande Instance.

However, even before the Paris Court of Appeal gave its verdict, Mr Adesanya had begun to negotiate with the Jonathan-led government (in which Mr Dasuki was a key player) for the payment of the arbitral award which had then accrued to $477 million.

In the end, the administration paid him about $55.3 million as full and final settlement, although he later protested, saying he did not obtain the consent of his board before signing the agreement with the NNPC.

A chunk of Sunrise Power
The second business logjam that Mr Adesanya battled to resolve during the Jonathan administration concerned the $6billion Mambilla power project which was awarded to his company, Sunrise Powers and Transmission Company Limited, but which later became the subject of an intense business dispute and power play.

The Mambilla power project, first conceived in the 1970s and expected to produce 3,050 megawatts of electricity, has stalled owing to controversies surrounding the award of the contract to Sunrise Power.

The award was sequel to a 2003 agreement under the Olusegun Obasanjo-led administration to construct the 3,050MW plant in Mambilla, Taraba State, on a build, operate and transfer basis.
The Jonathan government, in which Mr Dasuki played a prominent role, worked very hard to resolve the logjam. For instance, in 2012, the then president directed the Ministry of Power to fast-track amicable resolution of the dispute arising from multiple lawsuits.

The ministry then initiated discussions with the contending contracting partners. The discussions and negotiations culminated in the execution of a General Project Execution Agreement between the government, Mr Adesanya’s Sunrise Power and Transmission Company Limited (SPTCL) and Sinohydro Corporation of China on November 23, 2012.

In fact, things moved so fast that in January 2015, the federal ministry of power issued an award letter to Sinohydro Corporation, CGGC of China and Sunrise Power, for the execution of the project, with Sunrise as the local content partner for the project.

It is unclear if Mr Dasuki offered Mr Adesanya and his company help in any way. But it was within that period – November 2013 – that Mr Adesanya discreetly incorporated Hydropower Investments for the Dasukis and then awarded them 10 million shares in Sunrise Power and another 1.5 million shares in another of his companies — Sino Africa.

However, after the Jonathan government left office, the legal tussle returned and has remained unresolved, again stalling the execution of the Mambilla project.

Dasuki, Adesanya and EFCC
Soon after the end of the Jonathan administration, the anti-graft agency, EFCC, launched an investigation into a bribery scheme, involving indicted former Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, some bank chiefs, and oil tycoons. Those investigated included Mr Adesanya and Benedict Peters, managing director of Aiteo Group, were accused of bribing officials of the electoral body INEC with an estimated $115 (23 billion naira at the prevailing rate) to influence the 2015 elections.

In addition to the cash brought by Ms Madueke, companies belonging to Mr Adesanya and Mr Peters were said to have contributed to the slush fund.

Some INEC officials were charged and a number of them have been convicted and jailed. Ms Madueke was also charged but she shunned her trial.

Mr Dasuki, too, was arrested in December 2015 by the State Security Service over allegations he diverted 2.1 billion dollars security funds. The Buhari government repeatedly cited national security concerns for Mr Dasuki’s continued detention despite courts ordering his release. The SSS eventually released Mr Dasuki in December 2019.
Politics / Re: Ebunola Martins: Tinubu Should Support The South-East For 2023 Presidency by omoalaro: 5:19pm On Oct 13
MANNABBQGRILLS:
SOUTH EAST: IS IT NOT TOO LATE?

I have read the recent transmissions by Senator Bukola Saraki directed at my Igbo tribe. I have deliberately kept mum on this as I had earlier resolved to speak less on Igbos as regards the 2019 Elections and 2023 Presidency having said quite a bit. 

However seeing as some of my brethren have swallowed the cheap bait, I will chip this in just to keep the reality before us, at least for posterity sake. Truth is bitter but it's still the best medicine. 

My people say; 'He who does not remember where the rain started beating him, will not remember where it stopped'. 

REWIND TO 2014. 
A new National Party was being conceived. Political Parties, political players and Regions were being wooed to the new alliance. 

'We' Igbos (read South East) vehemently refused to touch it even with a long pole. We packaged, sold to ourselves and bought the baseless propaganda that it was an Islamic alliance that would birth an "Islamic" and "Hausa" Party. Simply because those our brethren heavily invested in the PDP at the time were afraid of losing their vested selfish interests.
Till today I'm still trying to fathom the basis for that wicked and twisted deceit especially as many of those Igbo elites who sold that dummy have since ported to the same APC.

We failed to even identify with that new Alliance. Hence the Party, APC was birthed without any remarkable input from us or presence. The few amongst us who aligned were called all kinds of names and abused to high heavens by us even when they were proven right afterall.

Thus the few Igbos who were part of it were at best fringe players as they didn't have the required clout to make serious demands and do the necessary political wheeling and dealing required in Politics to strike the hard bargains since politics is all about interests and numbers. They were even suspect, so much so that it was only their personal political sagacity that gave them whatever they got.

That Party went on to win the Presidential Election which in truth, most of us never believed it could or would, because of our half baked permutations and poor understanding of Nigerian politics. But it did. 

Curiously we turned up at the fore front of telling this same Party how it should share it's 'spoils of war'. We became hypocritical moral champions with an over bloated sense of entitlement. Who does that, in all political reality and practicality? But we did, even while vehemently and vociferously still refusing to shift our position, style and rhethoric.

We dug in. Supported every bad thing and person against the Party, the elected President and the Administration while denying any and every good done to and for our Region.

Fast forward to where we are today. Almost four years after the 2015 misadventure, we have stayed put at 2015, refusing to move forward, refusing to shift grounds, refusing to play pragmatic politics, telling ourselves the same lies we cooked and bought in 2015 and some more. 

Now barely 5 months to another election, we have started again saying "APC cannot give Presidency to Igbos in 2023". "Buhari cannot hand over to an Igbo man because Buhari hates Igbos". "APC is deceiving you", bla bla bla.

Of course. We will believe Saraki, who has only but a fanthom dream of becoming President and whose only known record is selfishness but we can't believe Buhari who's already President and who has a record of voluntarily picking two great Igbo sons as running mates in the past? Chukwu aju.

It is interesting and vital to note here that the PDP which many of us still proudly support and adore was in power for 16 solid years and in those years there were 4 Presidential Inaugurations and on none of those was an Igbo man found worthy by the PDP of even Vice Presidency and we are still bold to say it is the APC that has not even finished one tenure that doesn't want to give power to Igbos. Odi nma. 

NOW; Seriously, let's be sincere. As things stand today politically, why would the APC even hand power to us Igbos in 2023? 
On what grounds? 
On what records?
On what politics?
Is power given to anyone? 
Is it an appeasement or a gift? 

The APC is a political party. The main focus of a political Party is to hold power and keep it to enable it deliver on its agenda. So if the APC reads that the SE does not want the Presidency or does not have the capacity to help them win and keep power, they will stick with the regions that can and work with individuals who are interested. 

Make no mistake, I have always said, I do not blame us Igbos for the decision majority of us took in 2015. It's our right. But continuing to pretend that it was other regions, Buhari or the APC that made us do what we did then or remain where we are today is purely self deceit and I refuse to play that ostrich game. 

As far back as 2014, I and many others made that argument that Igbo Presidency was very feasible in 2023, ONLY under under the APC, ONLY IF we did a couple of things right politically. I personally continued to speak loudly on that even after the 2015 elections until when I realized that we were not ready to play the politics that was required and now I dare say it may be too late. Or is it not? Time will tell.

For now, we can continue to tell ourselves that we cannot hold the Presidency of Nigeria. I heard and read many of our brethren go from PDP to Biafra/seccesion (read IPOB) to Referendum to "Igbos do not need Presidency but Restructuring" etc forgetting that all that didn't lie squarely with us alone. We think other regions are not reading our body language?

I really don't care what Saraki writes or says because they've all come to realize that it's very easy to play us like a flute. So like Saraki, like Fani Kayode, like Fayose, like Atiku, even Jonah Jang of all people, they keep playing us.

I've learnt not to bother myself anymore to avoid unnecessary abuse from nonentities . As some of us have said, it's good governance we want, even if only one village will be producing the Presidents. So be it.

Ka Chineke mezie okwu.

Herdsmen Have Left South-East, But Igbos Still Killing One Another, Burning Their Cities—Herders' Union, Miyetti Allah
Spokesman for the group, Saleh Alhassan said it only shows that Fulani herders were never the problem.

BY SAHARAREPORTERS, NEW YORKOCT 05, 2021

Fulani herdsmen under the aegis of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore have mocked the South-East region, saying their exit and the implementation of the anti-open grazing law in the area have not stopped the violence going on there.



Spokesman for the group, Saleh Alhassan said it only shows that Fulani herders were never the problem.


Miyetti Allah group
He noted that there was no more open grazing in most parts of the South-East.


According to him, what goes on in the region is largely cattle trading and the cows being sold mostly belong to Igbo traders, Punch reports.


Alhassan said, “That nonsense you see in the South-East is a manifestation of frustration… They will continue burning their cities, killing themselves.


“Now that the herders are not there, they are still killing themselves. Sometimes they wear Fulani attire to continue to commit heinous crimes.


“Now that the herders are not there, are they having peace in the East?”


Alhassan added that the constant sit-at-home orders given by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), which are being violently enforced, have led to the loss of cattle, hence the exit of Miyetti Allah or herders.


“Those Biafrans are shooting and killing their animals. Those making noise in the media are cattle traders. They will not go anywhere. The cows you see there now belong to the Igbo,” he stated.


The Miyetti Allah spokesman said the group would not obey the anti-open grazing law being passed in most parts of the South because open grazing is their way of life


He said the group would sue all the states enforcing the law, adding that Miyetti Allah would also take political and spiritual steps.


Alhassan also denied reports that Dr. Chike Akunyili, the widower of the late Dora Akunyili, a former information minister, was murdered by herdsmen.


The late Akunyili was killed last week.


He argued that the blanket ban on open grazing in the South was connected to the 2023 elections and was a ploy by southern governors to force their northern counterparts to negotiate for the Presidency amid the raging debate on zoning.


Alhassan, however, vowed that the group would never support the presidential ambition of any governor that is enforcing the ban on open grazing.

Politics / Navy Shoots Unknown Gunmen Dead In Anambra by omoalaro: 7:37pm On Oct 02
It was a bloody Saturday for some gunmen in Anambra State as men of the Nigerian Navy stationed at Navy Junction, Awaka, neutralised them in a gun duel.

The gunmen, travelling in a red Toyota Highlander SUV, with registration number NSH 248 AE, according to the video recording of the incident, were all allegedly killed in the gun duel.

The video shows the interior of the SUV and blood-spattered, indicating that all the occupants were shot, as depicted by the blood clots on Tue foot mats.

The video equally shows the Naval officers inspecting the car, just as one of the narrators displayed the headwear of the occupants with the inscription, “vigilante” and a red knotted bandana, believed to be an amulet.

The irony is that they keep denying responsibility for their killings. All terrorists are always bold to claim responsibility for their actions but IPOB will always want us to believe it is fulani herdsmen or DSS. The closest they have come to accept responsibility is calling the murderers unknown gunmen or hoodlums.
The political and religious leaders in the south east are also afraid to mention IPOB. Watch them on TV and see them rigmaroling and beating about the Bush without being able to mention IPOB.

Business / US Dollar Vs NIG Naira: The Real Issues - Dr Oni Gbolabo by omoalaro: 6:40pm On Sep 20
*Yesterday one dollar rose to N495*

I think this writer did a good job that we should all critically look into.

*US Dollar vs NIG Naira: The Real Issues*

- Dr Oni Gbolabo

1. Appreciation and depreciation of currency is not related to race or color or who is the president be it Hausa Igbo or Yoruba. It is basically about production of goods and services and the demand of your products in the world market. A confused country that produces almost nothing will never meet up, policies only control your currency not the value of another countries currency against yours.

2. A country where over 500 industries died within 30 years must be stupid to complain of depreciation of her currency. We keep killing local industries and expect policies to make it up, it's a joke sir. Don't use China as an example if depreciating currencies and strong economy, China produces and may attract more export with that strategy unlike Nigeria that produces nothing.

3. A country where someone carried $2+billion simply to be shared is already a doomed one in terms of monetary policy and value. A country that produces Dizeani and Bafarawa who spent billion to appease demons. Those money without economic value is an economic poison injected into the system.

4. A country that favours importation over local production is doomed because it creates employment for another country while sacking her own citizens. Some people are working in Michelin and Dunlop somewhere, yet we use the tyre here. Don't tell me principle of comparative advantage here, it's not applicable.

5. A country that exports all raw materials without adding value is shameless to talk of depreciation of currency, to later re-import finished products of that materials is the peak of daftness. A bag of cocoa will go for like N1 million naira but when it is processed it will worth around N7million. Even farmers who produced raw cocoa can't buy chocolate.

6. A country that deliberately operate banking system that gives loans to importers at the expense of local industries is doomed and should say nothing about depreciation. Most of the loans are given to senators and representatives not industrialists.

7. A country that give loans in billions to agric sector without monitoring & evaluation of such loan on how it gets to the real farmers is a sham. A guy collected over N2 billion agric loan, he bought a jeep, built a nice house and use the rest to import processed pork. Meanwhile, local pork farmers are dying here. Is that not a double tragedy, stressing forex at the same time killing local industries.

8. A country that spend more on few privileged politicians at the cost of the populace who are unemployed should not talk about money depreciation. A country that keeps paying NNPC staff N10 billion as salaries every month when a single drop of petrol was not processed shout shut up about depreciation of currency. Crime is rising as value added to the initial failure.

9. A country where it is difficult for investors to register businesses because of the governent officials demanding for bribe. Right from airport, to hotel, to minister to governors investors will bribe, all these are part of cost of investment. A friend brought investor on estate development just for the state commissioner in charge to demand 30% of the investment. To see the governor in a state will cost you N2 million as bribe before you can be scheduled. This is a state as poor as anything.

10. A country where the cost of travelling for treatment abroad by officials will build world class hospitals should not talk about naira against dollar parity. Money taken to that trip is part of stress on forex. Same as forex spend on pilgrimage, let religion fanatics keep off me here. Without going to Mecca or Jerusalem you can still make heaven. You waste forex on pilgrimage to later be talking rubbish about forex.

11. A country where few people have access to federal reserve and those few can get loans are not because of what they can produce but the connection they have, is that country not gone already?

12. A country where we import what we produce because it's cheaper over there is gone.

13. A country that has arable land, teaming idle youths and still complain of hunger should not talk about currency depreciation. It's annoying.

14. A country where free money flows can never control inflow and outflow of forex. Imagine someone who wants to hide his loot went to Aboki to buy dollars worth $50 million just to hide it in the basement of his house. That money has no economic value yet it deprived those companies that need it to import raw materials, those companies go to Aboki to buy at exorbitant price.

15. A country where a strong bank owners can influence shares from within Stock Exchange room to inflate their shares worth from N20 to N150, crash the same share to N30 and ready to buy it back at N28 all within a year.

Forget it, currency will never appreciate in such economy.

16. A country where banks are involved in round tripping and inflated cost to siphon money is doomed.

A company wants to import caterpillar worths $550,000.

A bank made the forex $550,000, meanwhile no caterpillar was imported at last yet the money faded into private accounts.

Who strain forex in that case?

For most people, especially young people sympathetic to the Ipob cause, the army operation was an eye-opener about what war looked like.

A very good point.

Hmmmm!

If he did, then that’s a huge miscalculation on his own side except he knows things we don’t.

Maybe Val is more popular on ground than Maduka is.

[b]Again I heard Maduka is a Protestant [/b]which must have been a huge factor.

Politics of religion again? No more Muslim/Christian but Catholic/Protestant

It's possible ..

For I see a violation of international Law in Kanu's arrest .

Only issue here is that Kanu has dual citizenship.

Excellent point. Under article 5 of the Vienna convention, Nnamdi Kanu will not enjoy full consular support for being a dual citizen. He will however enjoy partial consular support as a British citizen.
This is the law, not emotion.

Politics / EXCLUSIVE: Kwankwaso To Dump PDP For APC by omoalaro: 9:48pm On Jul 01
POLITICS DIGEST– Former Governor of Kano State Sen. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso is about to conclude his plans of joining the governing All Progressives Congress.

Kwankwaso, a former Minister of Defence and Senator representing Kano Central in the 9th senate is not comfortable in the People’s Democratic Party since the disrupted Zonal Congress of the party that took place in April at Kaduna.

The Congress which was disrupted by members of the Kwankwasiyya movement happened after they realised that their preferred candidate for the Zonal Vice Chairmanship of the party would not win the election.

Kwankwaso who was supporting Mohammed Jamo Yusuf against Bello Hayatu Gwarzo insisted that he must be allowed to bring the Zonal Vice Chairman of the party from his camp.

Both Mohammed Jamu and Sen. Bello Hayatu Gwarzo are from Kano.

POLITICS DIGEST revealed that Sen. Bello Hayatu Gwarzo is enjoying the support of majority stakeholders of the North West Zone including Governor Aminu Tambuwal whom Kwankwaso had accused of buying the nomination form for Bello Hayatu in an interview with BBC Hausa.

Following the outcome of the congress that was not held and the sensing of defeat by Kwankwaso, he became convinced that the PDP is not ready to support him and his candidates hence the start of consultation with members of the APC including Ashiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Kwankwaso met Tinubu in Saudi Arabia and discussed in a closed door critically on his next political move.

Sources close to Mr. Kwankwaso told POLITICS DIGEST that he has being in consultation with governor of Yobe State and Chairman of APC Extraordinary Caretaker and Convention Committee Mai Mala Buni.

Some of the governors that are in frontilne of wooing Kwankwaso include governor Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa State and Mohammed Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State who just joined the party on Tuesday as exclusively reported by this paper.

Kwankwaso will be joining the APC with thousands of his supporters including the 2019 gubernatorial candidate of the party in Kano Abba Kabir Yusuf and his Deputy Aminu Abdussalam Gwarzo.

Majority of Kwankwasiyya Stakeholders this paper reliably gathered will not join Kwankwaso in the APC.

These are majority of people that served him in the state executive council.

Kwankwaso is expected to defect to the APC the moment he finished consultation but will be any moment before the ward, local and state congresses of the APC that will be taking place in August.

Kano State Commissioner for Rural Development Musa Iliyasu Kwankwaso has described the decision of Kwankwaso to join the party as a welcome one but warned him not to come and destabilise their party.

“Even if he comes, he knows they is a leader in the party and he’s Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the way Ganduje followed him, this is the time for him to pay back.

Ganduje is the leader of APC in Kano as governor of the state ” said Musa Iliyasu.

A video of Buba Galadima’s interview on DW Hausa that’s seen circulating on Wednesday evening had accused PDP of not ready as an opposition party.

Mr Galadima has condemned the weakness of PDP as an opposition party in the country describing it as a failed party.

“PDP is not a just party from day one, it is known for that, they have a group, if you don’t belong to that group, forget about getting an opportunity in the party and whoever knows what he’s doing will not stay in the party.

Mr. Galadima is an ally and close associate of Kwankwaso. The video was shared by the media aide of Kwankwaso Saifullahi Hassan on WhatsApp group and Facebook page.

Many people saw his short audio clip on DW Hausa as someone that’s speaking the mind of his friend and associate Mr. Kwankwaso.

Politics / Re: Appeal Court Gets Eighteen New Justices (Names, Pictures) by omoalaro: 8:33pm On Jun 28
Akainzo:


The thing to look at is, what is the full composition of the Appeal Court judges? The SE already had their full allocation under GEJ as they had filled their quota, so the last one only replaces the one lost by the SE geo-political zone.

So the areas that have higher numbers are just now getting their positions filled. All appointments are to be taken in totality and not in isolation.

Don't mind them, illiterates everywhere. If government is filling vacant positions due to death or retirement, will they fill for regions that have no vacancies?
Politics / Re: Appeal Court Gets Eighteen New Justices (Names, Pictures) by omoalaro: 5:21pm On Jun 28
Ignorance is a terrible disease. Just like CAN that is not ignorant but mischievous, almost all the commenters above can not use goggle to find out that government only replaced judges that have left service as a result of death or retirement.

*CAN’S CAMPAIGN OF CALUMNY ON THE SHORLISTED JUSTICES
OF THE COURT OF APPEAL*

The attention of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) has
been drawn to the insinuations and vituperations that trailed the shortlisting of 20
Justices-designate by the Federal Judicial Service Commission (FJSC). It would be
noted that except it is compelled to do so, the Council has often resisted joining issues with the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) as a matter of principle.

This is because CAN has proved, times without number, its morbid hatred for
Islam and Muslims, its remarkable capacity for destructive mischief, its dexterous
use of scurrilous propaganda and its predilection for always being economical with
the truth as part of the sinister strategy of heating up the polity anytime a Muslim is at the helm of affairs.

It would be recalled that not too long ago, the Council was forced to expose the
marginalisation of Muslims in the successive Boards of the Nigerian Television
Authority (NTA) after CAN made one of its wild and mendacious allegations of
Christian marginalisation. It is actually a wicked strategy and unholy tactics to
accuse Muslims of marginalisation though Muslims are the ones being deliberately and systemically marginalised by Christians, who continue to consolidate on the colonial agenda of emasculating Muslims. However, NSCIA would not allow the serial falsehood of CAN and its propensity for character assassination of people on the basis of their religious identity to stand because truth is irrefragable.
To wit, the intransigence of CAN is playing out again in the deliberate distortion of the issues surrounding the shortlisted 20 Justices-designate. The grouse of CAN, as amplified by some hagiographers masquerading as opinion leaders, is that 13 of the 20 recently shortlisted Justices are from the North and are Muslims. Though the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem, on her honour stated unequivocally that the procedure of the appointment followed “due and
usual process” and that the recommendation “was done without any preference for tribe, creed or association”, mischief makers, ethnic jingoists and religious bigots resorted to blackmail. In venting their spleen against the development, CAN especially and its apologists choose to ignore the fact that Muslims are a minority in the religious composition of the Court of Appeal. In a statement filled with bile and bigotry, the so-called religious body expressed its “feelings of sadness, disgust and anger at the insensitivity demonstrated by the FJSC in compiling the list. It seems undeniable that the recklessness displayed by the FJSC suggests a steady and gradual descend (sic) to (sic) a process of Islamising the Judiciary of Nigeria.”
The unassailable truth is that Justices of the Court of Appeal (JCAs) are 70 but the North with 19 States has 34 while the South with 17 States has 36. The South thus has more JCAs than the North. Meanwhile, out of the 36 JCAs from the South West (where Muslims are a majority), South East and South South (in both of which Muslims have considerable indigenous populations), all the JCAs are Christians except for Justice Habeeb Adewale Abiru of Lagos state and Justice Mistura Bolaji-Yusuf of Oyo state. But in the three geo-political zones of the North where Muslims are predominant, there are 34 JCAs out of which 15 are Christians. In other words, the North East has 4 Muslim JCAs and 7 Christians, the North Central has 6 Muslim JCAs and 7 Christians while the North West has 9 Muslim JCAs and 1 Christian JCA. Of the 36 from the South, only 2 are Muslims.

*Subtotal (Northern States plus FCT): 16 Christians, 18 Muslims*

*Grand Total of all JCAs: 50 Christians (71.4%), 20 Muslims
(28.6%)*

However, the three geopolitical zones of the South have only two Muslim JCAs
while the three geopolitical zones of the North have 15 Christian JCAs! Who is
wickedly intolerant?
The cacophony of Christian marginalisation that constitutes the sing-song of CAN
is a blatant lie, a deliberate distortion and a devilish strategy of shedding crocodile
tears or crying while flogging Muslims with bare-faced oppression and systemic
repression in Nigeria. Though religion preaches love, honesty, sincerity, tolerance,
good neighbourliness and kindness, among other virtues, CAN has succeeded in creating a Nigerian version of Christianity which is anchored on morbid hatred, undisguised dishonesty, caustic insincerity, religious intolerance, perennial hostility and outright wickedness. If CAN has its way, it would annihilate Muslims from Nigeria but one billion CANs of calumny unleashed against us cannot extinguish the light of Islam here and elsewhere, even if they try it!
This is the same strategy underpinning the needless hubbub over hijab in Kwara
state and elsewhere. It is given that the right to hijab is constitutionally guaranteed.
However, to CAN, constitutionality does not matter where intolerance festers and it has resorted to toe the path of violence. Section 38, Subsection 1 of the Nigerian Constitution (as amended in 2011) states categorically thus:

*Every person shall be entitled to freedom of thought, conscience and religion*… *(either alone or in community with
others, and in public and or in private) to manifest and propagate his religion or belief in worship, teaching practice and observance;*............
