Politics / Politician Orders His Escort To Beat Up Atiku Campaign Bus Driver In Owerri by Kingsmeal: 1:43am
Yesterday, a politician ordered his police escort to beat up an Atiku campaign bus driver along Douglas road in Owerri, for allegedly obstructing his convoy.

According to a man who shared the video, he narrated that the road was actually busy as a result of the visit of PDP's President candidate, Atiku Abubakar to the state for his campaign rally.

The policemen who came down from a hilux van, moved straight to the driver and started manhandling him with series of gunshots released in the air.

When the situation became calm, passerby's surrounded the driver who was in tears, to know what his offence was and why he was treated that way.

Watch the video here and see photos below...

Politics / Atiku To Overhaul CBN by naijaking1: 1:42am

Nigerian opposition candidate plans central bank overhaul: spokesman

LONDON (Reuters) - Nigeria's main opposition candidate for president wants to overhaul the central bank by separating supervisory and monetary policy functions, and to transition the naira to a managed float, a spokesman for him said on Monday.

Atiku Abubakar, a businessman who served as vice president between 1999 and 2007, is the main challenger to President Muhammadu Buhari in the Feb. 16 election.

"Bankers are really conflicted when you put them in the role of regulators," Abubakar's spokesman Osita Chidoka told Reuters, adding the central bank had not divided sufficiently its supervisory and monetary policy functions as other countries do.

"The central bank is high on the list of agencies that will witness a restructuring to be sure that it is reflective of the dynamics of today's economy."

Chidoka also said Abubakar did not think current governor Godwin Emefiele was best placed to continue at the helm given his past record supporting the government.

"He wasn't independent," said Chidoka, who had just returned from a trip to Washington with Abubakar, of the main opposition People's Democratic Party (PDP).

"You really need a development mindset and an economist ... it doesn't have to be a banker, it has to be someone who thinks about the economy in a holistic way."

Emefiele's office did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

Emefiele imposed currency restrictions in 2015, defying bankers’ advice to float the naira and raise interest rates as some other oil exporters had done.

His decisions were in line with current leader Buhari, a staunch opponent of letting the naira float freely.

The currency restrictions saw investors cutting their exposure to Nigerian asset as the once promising emerging market was ejected from key bond indexes.

Chidoka also confirmed Abubakar planned to oversee the currency transition into a managed float that would give more flexibility but also reflected the fact that Nigeria's oil-dependent economy hugely depended on crude oil prices.

"Nigeria cannot afford to keep the naira at 305 (to the dollar), creating a window for arbitrage. On the street it is 360 - a 55 naira difference."

Nigeria has a plethora of exchange rates against the U.S. currency and has been selling the dollar on the interbank market to boost liquidity after floating the naira for investors.

However, the official rate stood at around 307 to the dollar on Monday - a level it has been close to since late 2016, while black market currency dealers quoted the naira at 362.

Nigeria vies with South Africa's to be the largest economy on the continent, but has performed below par since 2016, when it suffered its first recession in 25 years.

Politics / CCT Rejects Court Orders Stopping Onnoghen’s Trial by adebuk47(m): 1:42am
The Code of Conduct Tribunal on Tuesday rejected the Federal High Court, Abuja, and National Industrial Court of Nigeria’s orders stopping the trial of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen.

Onnoghen is facing trial for alleged false declaration of assets.

The CCT also held that the courts were of coordinate jurisdiction with the tribunal and so lacked powers to direct or supervise its proceedings.

The CCT Chairman, Danladi Umar, said these while rejecting a motion by Onnoghen asking the tribunal to adjourn indefinitely based on the High Court and the NICN’s orders that the parties must maintain the status quo.

He gave the ruling in a split decision of two to one. While Justice William Atedze gave the dissenting judgement, Justice Julie Anabor agreed with the tribunal chairman.

Meanwhile, Onnoghen was again absent from the hearing on Tuesday. It was reported that the CJN would again be absent from the hearing.

Justice Umar rejected the submission by the Defence Counsel led by Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN) that the tribunal should adjourn indefinitely based on the orders of the Federal High Court, Abuja, and the NICN which ordered the parties to maintain the status quo pending hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

Olanipekun also argued that the tribunal should adjourn because the matter was already before the Court of Appeal, Abuja.

But noting that the Court of Appeal had yet to issue any order, the CCT chair agreed with the complainant’s counsel, Aliyu Umar (SAN), that the judgement cited were from courts of equal status with the tribunal as court of superior record.

Justice Umar said, “This is because the tribunal is established by the constitution under the third schedule to adjudicate on matters of asset declaration.

“Therefore any order from any court directing it not to carry out its duty is in crystal violation of the constitution.”

Justice Umar said an appeal from the tribunal could only go to the Court of Appeal.

The tribunal adjourned sitting till January 28 for hearing of Onnoghen’s preliminary objection where he is challenging the jurisdiction of the court.

While the sitting was on, a group — National Interest Defenders and Lawyers in Defence of Democracy — stormed the tribunal to protest against the CJN’s trial .

The groups carried placards of various inscriptions including, “APC wants to destroy our Supreme Court”, “Buhari wants judges to join APC” and “Nobody can force Onnoghen out.”

Spokesman for the group, Ikenga Ugochinyere, advised President Muhammadu Buhari against removing the CJN, saying that could cause tension in the country.

He said, “The President wants to install a pliable Justice to help the APC get favourable judgements from the Supreme Court in the Rivers and Zamfara APC crisis, in the presidential election and in the states where they are afraid they will lose elections. The states include Akwa Ibom, Delta, Lagos, Benue, Imo, Kwara, Plateau, Kaduna, Abia and Sokoto.”

Is Sowore not a Nigerian again?

He has principals and is not your average Nigerian. He has already almost died for Nigeria and nobody has been able to buy him from his youth until now.

If he was like the average Nigerian, the very rich corrupt classes he exposes would have bought him off a very long time ago.

The both of you aren't communicating.
If it's intentional, then the other person is just looking for a way out.

You've said before that he is paying for things alone and you don't want to work... So you might just be the one not listening.

If he showed me affection then we would be fine.

Maybe I will give him a deadline and let him know if nothing changes by xyz then just so you know I will be getting to know other men.
And rather than him finding out will let him know before hand.
