Former President Jonathan Breaks Silence, calls El-Rufai a 'Liar' over N64billion Independence Celebration

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has broken silence on how he allegedly spent N64 Billion on Independence celebration, he called Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state, a ‘liar’.

The statement, titled “We never spent billions on independence anniversary — Jonathan”, was issued on behalf of the former president on Sunday by Abubakar Sulaiman, the immediate past minister/deputy chairman, National Planning Commission.
According to, Sulaiman said the Jonathan administration spent only N332.6 million for the celebration in five years — an average of N66 million per year. The Muhammadu Buhari
administration spent N70 million on the 55th independence anniversary on Thursday in what was described as a low-key celebration.

Sulaiman said former President Olusegun Obasanjo was “perhaps” right in his assessment of el-Rufai as somone who has a penchant for lying, for unfair embellishment of stories and his inability to sustain loyalty for long.


We were taken aback by the recent comment reportedly credited to His Excellency, Governor Nasir El-rufai where he claimed that the immediate past President, His Excellency, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan’s administration spent N64billion to cover the country independence anniversary spending in five years.
The break down, according to the governor showed that N13billion was spent in 2011, N15billion in 2012 and N14billion in 2013 and N22billion allegedly spent in 2014. This tissue of lies was contained on his facebook comment on Thursday.
Ordinarily, we would have allowed this to go as just ranting of a favour seeker , but for the sake of ordinary Nigerians who were abreast of happenings under the administration and also those who never did, we will like to set the record straight. It is important to correct the misinformation so that the unsuspecting public would not be misled.
For the record, a breakdown of our anniversary spending between 2012 to 2014 amounted to N332.6million. We challenge the Office of the Government of the Federation (OSGF) to publish these details for the consumption of the public.
For the record, a breakdown of our spending for this event between 2012 and 2104 goes thus;

2013-45million and

2014 had 180million.

So, the question here is where did the billions as claimed by el-rufai emanate from? Even though that of 2010 and 2011 are not handy now, but it should be known that they all fall within the same bracket as the one stated, except that the 2010 anniversary was a golden one when the country marked her 50 year of independence.

But even then , not such outrageous sum was either budgeted or expended . Again, it is germane to explain the increase in the 2013 anniversary spending for the purpose of accountability.
The National Honours Award Investiture was incorporated into the celebration, thus making it two events in one, hence the N174,800,000.00 budget. We also want to add that the said award investiture could not hold in 2013 and the approved budget rolled over and was utilized to organise the investiture in 2014.

It is high time government functionaries desisted from abusing their immunity by destroying history and trading on lies just to gain cheap popularity or curry one favour or the other from certain quarters. Perhaps President Olusegun Obasanjo was right in his assessment of el-rufai when he said in his latest memoir, My Watch that his vivid recollection of him (el rufai)is his penchant for lying, for unfair embellishment of stories and his inability to sustain loyalty for long.
That exactly is what el-rufai has done with his ungodly fabrication of lies against Jonathan government. One hopes that President Buhari would be on guard against being misled by the likes of el-rufai who are hell bent on misinforming the Nigerian publics.

Woman Cuts Hubby’s private parts During Fight In Oweri

Ebony Edozie, a native of Umua­jara Ubogwu in Ofekatta autono­mous community Awo- Omumma in Oru East council area of Imo state, is now writhing in severe pains after his wife forcefully ripped open his scrotum with one of the testes badly damaged during a scuf­fle. Sunday Sun reliably gathered from source that Mr. Edozie a pools agent suffered this cruel fate last Thursday when he reprimanded his wife, Ndidi for severely beat­ing their three-year old sick daughter who had thrown up the medica­tion being administered on her by the wife.

The source further revealed that the wife who was angered by her husband’s reprimand engaged him in a verbal war which later degener­ated into a serious fight. Sunday Sun further learnt that the wife, dur­ing the fight, held tightly to her husband’s man­hood apparently to render him powerless adding that every effort by the husband to free himself proved abortive as the wife forcefully yanked off one of the husband’s testes. Narrating his ordeal in the hands of his wife from his hospital bed, Edozie said that he had been in hell since he mar­ried his wife.

According to him, it took the doctor about six hours to stitch the scro­tum that was badly dam­aged by his wife. “After our last fight I thought that it was over but suddenly my wife grabbed me from behind and started pull­ing my manhood and every effort to free my­self did not work as she pulled my manhood and refused to leave me un­til she had forcefully ripped open my scrotum while the second one ran into my stomach. I was rushed to Solbi Hospital at Umuokwe in Awo- Omumma by a close re­lation and a friend”.

He disclosed that his wife was well known in the entire village as a troublesome person who people try to avoid in­cluding her own family members. Mrs. Ndidi in her own account however accused her husband of having bitten her several­ly on her back and shoul­der, adding that he also pulled her two breasts during the fight before she resorted to pulling his manhood in equal measure.

Meet the men who made it to Buhari's second ministerial list

*Okorocha’s in-law, Odimegwu, Nnaji, etc.
Just days after submitting the list of the first set of ministerial nominees, President Muhammadu Buhari is weighing options on the next batch of nominees. Last minutes of intense horse-trading and lobbying are ongoing in the states without any representation on the first list.

Investigation showed that the jostle for the other slots has become intense.

The states that the second set of ministers will emerge from are:
Ondo, Kogi, Abia, Enugu, Imo, Bayelsa, Borno, Cross River, Nasarawa, Yobe, Zamfara, Osun, Kaduna, Bauchi, Sokoto, Adamawa, Lagos.
A reliable source, who spoke in confidence, said: “Despite the fact that the President has set his own criteria, he is weighing options on the remaining candidates because of interplay of factors.

“Although some aides are proposing the retention of the 42-man ministerial structure, others are urging the President to stick to the 36-team model prescribed by the 1999 Constitution.

“The submission of the first batch of 21 names to the Senate has heightened lobby for the remaining slots.”

It was gathered that governors, party leaders at all levels and associates have been trying to reach out to the President and “strategic aides.”

But the battle for the slots was said to be keen because no one knew the mindset of the President.

Another source said: “For instance in Imo, ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo wants the slot for a former Chairman of the National Population Commission (NPC), Chief Festus Odimegwu but Governor Rochas Okorocha is rooting for his in-law, Prof. Anthony Anwuka (a former vice chancellor).

“In Abia State, the jostle is between Buhari’s old associate, Ike Emenike and the party’s guber candidate, Anyim Nzeribe, who is a loyalist of Governor Rochas Okorocha in the state.”

“Having been familiar with the politics of Kaduna, President Buhari is taking sole charge of the ministerial nominee from the state, based on certain indices.

“In fact, Governor Nasir el-Rufai is actually staying away from making any input in the nomination process. He has left the President and other stakeholders to sort it out.

“In Ondo, the race for the ticket is between a former President of the NBA, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN) and a top politician from the state, who was an executive of a multinational company.

“In Osun, there are three candidates for the slot and Buhari is expected to pick one. They are ex-Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola (recommended for his support to Governor Rauf Aregbesola and APC); the immediate past Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Prof. Isaac Adewole and a prominent politician in the state.

“Apart from also being a favourite of Obasanjo, ex-Governor Oyinlola’s candidacy is also being promoted by some forces in APC.

In Enugu State, our source said the list is longer despite the fact that the state chapter of APC could only garner 14,000 votes (less than 3 per cent of the total votes cast) for Buhari.

The source added: “We have Comrade Osita Okechukwu, who is a reliable associate of Buhari. Although Okechukwu, the National Publicity Secretary of CNPP, has not met Buhari since his inauguration, he is said to be not too keen.

“But others vying for ministerial slot are ex-Minister of Power, Prof. Barth Nnaji (seeking a third term in FEC); APC National Vice Chairman, South-East, Emma Eneukwu; APC governorship candidate, Chief Okey Ezea and Chief Onyemuche Nnamani.

“In spite of the Kwara State slot going to the National Publicity Secretary of APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki is still lobbying for the return of his “godson” and ex-minister of sports, Bolaji Abdullahi, who was the Deputy Chairman of the Strategy Committee for the APC Presidential Campaign Council.

Abdullahi was rated as an asset during the campaign, and for resigning from ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s cabinet, he has earned the respect of some APC leaders.
“Saraki’s position may lead to the resuscitation of geopolitical representation in the Federal Executive Council to make the team 42.”

Investigation revealed that the challenge at hand is how Buhari will manage the choice of the remaining ministers because there are more than qualified party members, technocrats and long-standing and trusted associates.

A source in the Presidency added: “From the look of things, we may have to resort to consensus on some nominees as the case in some states.

“Let me give you the example of Ekiti State. When the nomination of the candidate for the state was knotty, ex-Governors Niyi Adebayo and Segun Oni met with Buhari where Oni declared without reservation that the slot should be given to Dr. Kayode Fayemi. And that assisted in tackling the matter.

As at press time, findings confirmed that most APC governors were shocked that the President did not allow them to make input into the choice of his ministers.

A source in the APC Governors Forum said: “The President determined those he wanted to work with him. To a large extent, the governors were not consulted on those picked from our states. But they have to bear with the President because it is his constitutional prerogative.

He said many governors woke up to read the list of cabinet members like every Nigerian.

“Since the President does not choose commissioners for the governors, they cannot pick his ministers for him. I think he is trying to do away with the past culture put in place by the PDP.

“The governors were no doubt shocked or surprised but the consolation is that he has chosen credible people.”

Apart from the governors, senators desirous of having the ministerial list would have to wait till Tuesday because the Senate President was said to have refused to open the envelope sent to him.

A Senator said: “We have all been pestering Saraki to have a glimpse of what was sent by the President but he said he would not open it until Tuesday.” 

Millions of Naira recovered by EFCC from the Abuja home of Allison-Madueke

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) detectives, who raided the Abuja home of Allison-Madueke, just at about the time of her arrest in the UK, on Friday, reportedly recovered cash running into millions of Naira.

The trial is expected to be conducted in London and is likely to draw thousands of Nigerians resident in the United Kingdom (UK) but no date was specified yet.

An official of the NCA gave indication of the trial in a telephone chat but pointed out that the identities of all the suspects would only be unveiled at the point of charging them to court.

The official explained that the law establishing the NCA does not allow it to name those being investigated before charging them to court.

The official said: “Indeed we cannot name the five persons who were arrested and granted police conditional bail until we are ready to charge them to court.

“The law does not permit us to do so and we will release appropriate information to the media as the case progresses”.

But it was learnt from sources close to the British government that the NCA might have concluded arrangements to arraign Diezani and other suspects believed to be mostly Nigerian oil business men, suspected to have aided and abetted money laundering while the former minister was in office.

One of the sources said the British Government started investigating Diezani as early as 2013 following sustained allegations of financial wrongdoings at home and abroad, leveled against her and some officials of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.

In the meantime, a team of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) operatives, which raided the Abuja home of the former minister in Asokoro, Abuja, was said to have recovered cash running into millions of Naira from the place.

The security agents, who stormed the home, on Frederick Chiluba Street, Asokoro, in six vehicles, reportedly gained access to the expansive mansion with the aid of some former security aides of the embattled former minister.

The team allegedly gained access to the well fortified house using one of the windows.

Reports said Diezani had not been sighted near the palatial home since leaving office in May but had been staying in the United Kingdom, where she reportedly sought medical attention over an undisclosed ailment.

In updated information on its website, yesterday, the NCA disclosed that investigation of the suspects was initiated in 2013 by the Proceeds of Corruption Unit, which transferred the matter to it early this year.

The agency said that the suspects were merely granted what it called “conditional police bail” pending further investigation to be conducted in the UK and overseas.

It was learnt that the EFCC, which has a working pact with UK anti-corruption agencies, swopped on Diezani’s home and recovered vital documents, which it hopes to use to prosecute her when the trial begins in London.

According to the NCA’s website, the International Corruption Unit (ICU) investigates bribery of foreign public officials by individuals or companies from the UK and money laundering by suspected corrupt foreign officials and their associates.

The ICU also traces and recovers the proceeds of international corruption, support foreign law enforcement agencies with international anti-corruption investigations; engages with government and business to reduce the UK’s exposure to the proceeds of corruption.

It works to support increased compliance with the Bribery Act 2010 and draws on the specialist support available to it within the NCA, while also working closely with other UK law enforcement agencies and overseas partners.

BREAKING NEWS!!! Scores feared dead as multiple bomb blast rocks Maiduguri today

Maiduguri (Nigeria) (AFP) – Multiple explosions were heard Sunday, on the outskirts of Maiduguri, a city in northeastern Nigeria that has repeatedly been attacked by Boko Haram Islamists, locals said.

They said loud explosions were heard from the areas of Kayamla and Dalori, three days after Maiduguri was attacked by the insurgents, leaving 10 dead and many more injured.

This is coming barely four days, after five suicide bombers had stormed the city, killing no fewer than 14 people with 39 others injured, on October 1, the nation’s 55th Independence Day Anniversary.

Also, on Friday, Boko Haram bombed Nyanya and Kuje, the suburbs of Abuja, the Nigerian capital. About 18 people died, including the bombers, even as 41 people were injured.

How Nigerians Died in Hajj Stampede — Survivor, Prof. Akintola (MUST READ)

Professor of Islamic Eschatology, human rights activist and Director of Muslim Rights Concern, Ishaq Akintola, who witnessed the September 24 stampede in Mina, Saudi Arabia, tells Bayo Akinloye of Punch that the Saudi authorities have to pay compensation for the loss of lives of Nigerians

As an eyewitness of the tragic stampede in Mina, what would you say went wrong?

What happened was this: there is usually a system with which pilgrims enter through the venue on the day of Jumrah. Jumrah is the day of stoning the Devil. Thus, when you go on your route; after stoning the Devil, you return by taking a detour which means you don’t take the same route back. When that system is followed there will be enough room for those coming to perform the same pilgrim’s rite and that allows for enough room for people to move without hindrance or stampede. But on that fateful Thursday (when the stampede occurred), September 24; when we were going to the Jumrah, we found that the place was overcrowded and it was quite unusual.

We performed this rite last year; we did it the year before that and the road was free. For the past 10 years there had been no pandemonium; and no stampede on that road. It (stampede) used to happen almost every year in the past, but for the past 10 years, the Saudi authorities have been able to control the human traffic, by creating different routes for entry and exit of the place. But, on that fateful day, we found out that some of those who had thrown their own stones made a U-turn instead of moving ahead to take a detour. They came through the route meant for entrance and not exit. They came towards us. They were in a very large group and the road was not spacious enough to allow a free flow of those of us coming to throw stones at the Devil and those who had stoned the Devil. The road could not take those coming and those going. And I discovered that most of those who took the wrong way were Egyptians.

How did you know they were Egyptians?

I knew they were Egyptians because I heard them speak the Egyptian dialect of Arabic. And, of course, I studied in Egypt for five years. I know the dialect. Knowing that the road would not contain those of us going to perform the Hajj rite and the Egyptians who had already done theirs, we pleaded with them, we tried to persuade them to take the right route to avoid any ugly incident but they refused; the reason being that their camp was based close to the venue of the stoning. And if they were asked to take the other way round to their camp, it would take them a long time to do so. They forgot that by facing us, they constituted themselves into a threat to life — too many lives and their own lives as well. Even if we had attempted to go back for them to pass through, it would have been impossible because a mass of pilgrims had built up and we were pushing one another. The road became narrower and breathing became difficult. In the commotion, the Saudi police after noticing that the situation was getting out of hand climbed roofs of buildings and started splashing cold water on the crowd so that it could give us some comfort — because at that point, people were already tired and collapsing. They had walked 10km from Monzabizah to Mina and from Mina they were walking another three kilometres to the Jumrah. At some point, we had to stand still. We tried to move to one side but it was impossible to do so as people coming from behind were pushing us forward. Consequently, we were forced to push those in front of us. I think it was just a few minutes that my group passed through the opposing crowds that the stampede began. I knew it was a tragedy waiting to happen.

Were there other factors that led to the tragic chaos?

There are other roads usually dedicated for moving in and out of the site but unfortunately on that day those roads were blocked by the Saudi security agencies for no obvious reasons. Why those roads were blocked I cannot explain; therefore, there was no escape route. It was just that one way and those who were facing us had occupied it. Besides, one major reason why that horrible stampede happened was that those who took the wrong route and disobeyed the authorities were able to do so because the Saudi security authorities became negligent; they were complacent. The security men were not at their posts when the commotion began. Saudi soldiers and policemen used to be at the Jumrah to ensure that once pilgrims have performed the stoning rite, they cannot use the same route in which they came in. If the soldiers and policemen had disallowed those who had finished stoning the Devil from using the entry route as the exit, the stampede would have been avoided.

But the Saudi authorities said Africans, which included Nigerians, who embarked on the stoning rite caused the stampede. How true is that?

The Saudi authorities lied by saying that the African nations, and black Africans, were responsible for the stampede. And, I should add that by African nations, they mean the blacks; Cameroonians, Nigeriens, Chadians, Nigerians and others that caused it. They don’t refer to Egyptians, Moroccans, Libyans, Tunisians and others as Africans. Rather, they call them Arabs. In their statements, they usually refer to these countries (Egypt, Morocco, Libya, and Tunisia) as Arab nations. And, our camps have always been separated from those of the camps of the Arab nations. The Egyptians were not in the African camp. The African camp was different; our location was different. It is still different today.
To support our hypothesis that this was what caused the stampede, the next day after the Saudi authorities saw the stampede and the monumental loss of lives and properties they had caused, they made sure that they brought so many security agents as much as possible to the appropriate points stopping those who had performed the rite of stoning the Devil from returning to their camps through the route they came in. Therefore, on the second and third day of stoning the Devil, there was adequate security personnel to ensure that people who were going to stone the Devil were not blocked or hindered by those who were returning after having performed their own rite. Thus, they did not allow on the second day, those same Egyptians or people from other countries to create the fatal chaos we experienced on the first day, from using the entrance as exit route. In spite of the deaths recorded people still went ahead to perform their rites the second and third day and the road was free. I would say it was laxity on the part of Saudi security agencies that caused the stampede.

Will the bodies of those who died be repatriated to Nigeria?

As far as the Muslim tradition goes, the dead will be buried in the holy land. Trying to bring back the corpses is double trouble for the dead body. Muslims don’t see anything special about dead bodies. The soul has gone back up to Allah depending on the way a person lived his life. We are not demanding for the dead bodies. Anybody who dies in the holy land, over the years, has always been buried there. In any case, Muslims believe that a dead person should be buried within 48 hours. Hence, we don’t see any wisdom in demanding for the repatriation of the corpses. We don’t see any need for it; and that’s not part of our demand.

Sultan of Sokoto, Muhamadu Buhari make list of world’s top 50 Muslim leaders

top 50 Muslim leaders
President Muhammadu Buhari, the Sultan of Sokoto, Saád Abubakar, and a Maiduguri-based Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ibrahim Saleh are among those listed as the world’s 50 most influential Muslim leaders.

BuhariThe Muslim 500, an annual publication of the World’s 500 most influential Muslims, recognised the three Nigerian leaders in its 7th edition published recently.

The publication says there are 1.7 billion Muslims in the world today, making up approximately 23% of the world’s population, or one-fifth of mankind.

It said those recognised have a sense of belonging to Muslim community worldwide, besides being citizens of their respective countries.

The publication measured influence some Muslims have on other Muslims to include: any person who has the power (be it cultural, ideological, financial, political or otherwise) to make a change that will have a significant impact on the Muslim world.

The impact could be either positive or negative, depending on one’s point of view, it said.
It added that the influence could be of a religious scholar directly addressing Muslims and influencing their beliefs, ideas and behaviour, or it could be a ruler shaping the socio-economic factors within which people live their lives, or of artists shaping popular culture.

“The first two examples also point to the fact that the lists, and especially the Top 50, are dominated by religious scholars and heads of state. Their dominant and lasting influence cannot be denied, especially the rulers, who in many cases also appoint religious scholars to their respective positions,” it said.

While the publication listed the top 500 influential Muslim leaders, the first part recognised the top 50 in which Messrs. Buhari, Abubakar and Saleh appear.

President Buhari was listed as the Number 20, while the Sultan and Sheikh Saleh are listed as numbers 24 and 38 respectively.

In a short citation, The Muslim 500 recognised Mr. Buhari’s past military career, his anti-corruption credentials and his promise and subsequent efforts to deal with the insurgent group, Boko Haram.
It also recognised that on economy and infrastructure.

“President Buhari was the first chairman of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and was the mastermind behind the construction of 20 oil depots throughout Nigeria, a project involving over 3200 kilometres of pipelines,” the magazine said. “Both the Warri and Kaduna refineries were built under his leadership. He also established the blueprints for the country’s petro-chemical and liquefied natural gas programmes”.

On environment, it said Mr. Buhari is “an active environmentalist who has drafted several plans to preserve wildlife in Nigeria. He has also exerted great efforts on the conservation of nature in Nigeria; such as controlling the logging industry whereby he has ensured that double the number of trees felled are replaced by loggers. He has also worked on restricting the Ecological Fund Office so it can deliver on environmental challenges”.

As for the Sultan Abubakar, the publication stated that he holds an important administrative influence in Nigerian religious life.

“Abubakar is the titular ruler of Sokoto in northern Nigeria and is also the head of the Nigerian National Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs. Leadership of this council means that the Sultan of Sokoto remains the only figure that can legitimately claim to speak on behalf of all Nigerian Muslims.

“This role has become increasingly influential over the years with a rise in interreligious tensions between Nigeria’s Muslim majority north and Christian-majority south,” it said.

The Muslim 500 also said the Sultan has started many initiatives to counter and reduce the influence of Boko Haram, including inviting an international joint Muslim/Christian Delegation to visit Nigeria.

As for Sheikh Saleh, the publication recognised him as a lecturer in the fields of Tafsir Al Qur’an (exegesis) and the Hadith as well as Islamic sciences, jurisprudence and ethics.

“He has over 100 written works. He has held and still heads several significant positions, some of which are, founder and mentor of the Islamic renaissance Organization, adviser to the Federal Government on its Islamic Affairs since 1992, Assistant Secretary-general for African Affairs in the World Islamic People’s Leadership 1989 and many more”.
