    PARIS, FEBRUARY 2, 2016: (DGW) - Boko Haram in what appears like a commando raid attacked Nigerian villages in Borno State the epicentre of Islamist insurgency and reportedly massacred women and children.

    As many as 200 people, our sources say, were roasted to death, but the Nigerian government under Mr Muhammadu Buhari in December said he has technically defeated the terrorists, a claim which many people call in question following a resurgence of bombings in the region which has continued with undiminished intensity.

    Below are pictures showing the gory scenes of many villagers who were roasted to death.

  • 'Gov Okorocha, is a motor park governor, a shameless son, he has spit on his father's grave' - Gov Willie Obiano

    02/Feb/2017 // 5973 Viewers

     

    The Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano Wednesday described his Imo State counterpart, Owelle Rochas Okorocha as a “shameless son who is spitting on his father’s grave”.

    Obiano made the statement through his Senior Assistant on Media, Strategic Communication and Legislative Matters, Prince Oliver Okpala addressing Okorocha as a “Motor park governor”.

    He observed that the Imo governor had moral problem in fighting the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) that made him governor after his several failed attempts in the past to be one.

    The governor noted that he would not have bothered replying Okorocha if not for the mere purpose of setting the records straight.

  • JUST IN: Tension in S'East as hostility between GOVs OBIANO, OKOROCHA gets messier, assumes alarming crescendo (Frightening!)

    02/Feb/2017 // 8184 Viewers

     

    The hostility between Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State and Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State yesterday got messier.

    Obiano told Okorocha that he can’t escape from his questionable past. But the Imo helmsman said he won’t bandy words with his colleague.

    The exchange of brickbats followed the Imo governor’s claim that three serving governors in the South-East were planning to join the All Progressives Congress (APC).

    However, Obiano refuted the allegation, describing Okorocha as ‘an example of what a leader should not be’.

    Imo State government fired back, as it dismissed Obiano as a nobody in the league of leaders, but foisted into office by godfathers.

    Piqued by the retort, Obiano yesterday declared that Nigerians know the true characters of Obiano and Okorocha; and who between the two governors really has a ‘motor park’ personality.

    He said: “Obiano has always been known and accorded the respect of a complete gentleman, while Okorocha is widely known for his questionable past which has continued to trail him despite his hogwash attempts to cover it up with a façade of his bogus, but empty, philanthropic activities.

    Many people have, over time, seen through his tricks.” In a statement signed by Prince Oliver Okpala, Senior Special Assistant on Media, Strategic Communication and Legislative Matters, the Anambra governor regretted that Okorocha could describe him as ‘clueless’, querying what justification the Imo governor had to talk about ideals of governance.

    “He talks of ideas when he cannot pay workers’ salaries and now tries to intimidate Imo retirees to forfeit 60 per cent of the arrears of their sweat. Are those the kind of ideas we need at this critical time? Those are destructive ideas.

    Let it be emphasized that Governor Obiano has not only been paying and increasing workers’ emoluments, he has also introduced credible palliative measures to mitigate the suffering of Ndi Anambra from the current economic recession.

    But for Okorocha, instead of facing the serious task of assisting his people to come out of poverty he specializes in erecting Christmas trees worth over N10 million during the Yuletide.”

    The statement further responded to Okorocha’s questioning of Obiano’s antecedent before coming into office as governor, stating that the Anambra State governor was a consummate banker and an accomplished professional who attained the apogee of his profession with a track record that cannot be diminished.

    “But the same cannot be said of Okorocha as Nigerians truly know him for the wrong reasons; they know him as a rabble rouser, who claimed to be a politician and flew the tricky kite of contesting for the Presidency just to corner some change into his pockets and the records are there for everyone to see.

    “As Nigerians ruminate on this matter, the questions that should be asked are: What was he before he became governor? What was his visible source of income? Maybe we should look a little bit at Okorocha’s antecedent.

    This is a man who managed to wangle his way into the corridors of power through intrigue and deceit. He was the chairman of the Nigeria Red Cross Society who railroaded gullible politicians and made many individuals and corporate organisations to donate several billions in a bogus scheme.”

    Obiano stated that in ideal setting, Okorocha shouldn’t have become governor of a state. “In other climes, people like Okorocha cannot ascend to the high Office of Governor.

    This is another indication of a lacuna in our laws that should make room for the scrutiny of the antecedents of individuals who aspire to such sensitive offices.

    Therefore, that Rochas is a Governor today in Nigeria is indeed an insult on our collective psyche,” the statement noted. While alleging that the best of Okorocha’s achievements are the failed projects littered across Imo State, Okpala boasted that the whole world knows about Obiano’s sterling feat in governance.

    His words: “From raising Anambra to a crimefree status; rapid industrialization by rehabilitation of roads and constructing new ones; demolition of a 30-year-old mountain of refuse in Okpoko two years ago; putting public facilities in place such as the 47 solar-powered boreholes that now serve 27 communities and increasing Anambra State’s IGR from the N500 million monthly that it inherited to N1.3 billion per month, to clearing the arrears of salaries owed the state water corporation staff, as well as the approximately N1 billion pension that was owed local government retirees inherited by the administration.

    Obiano has been a superlative performer!” Contacted for reaction, Okorocha declined to speak on the matter. His Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, told New Telegraph that the governor would not react to Obiano’s claims.

    “We do not engage in frivolities. All we did was set the record straight following Governor Obiano’s unguarded statement and not to bandy words with anybody,” Onwuemeodo.

  • Buhari's life and security ten times more important than that of ordinary Nigerian - Lai Mohammed blasts Nigerians

    02/Feb/2017 // 11020 Viewers

     

    PARIS, FEBRUARY 2, 2017: (DGW) Nigeria's Information and Culture Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed says President Muhammadu Buhari is ten times more important than the ordinary Nigerian.

    He made the remark while answering questions in an interview with Daily Sun newspapers. While reacting to a question thrown to him on the 'Change begins with me' campaign of the president on why he did not seek medical attention at home, a question which has gained currency among Nigerians, the minister said it is not unusual to give priority to the health and security to the president.

    He argued that the change begins with me campaign is not enough to stop the president to see medical checkup overseas while on vacation adding that he has been doing that on his own before he became the elected president of Nigeria.

    According to him, ''I think anybody saying that is just stretching it too far. Look, anywhere in the world, you give priority to the health and security of the President. You do not say because of ‘change begins with me,’ your President is going on a leave, therefore,  he cannot take the opportunity of being on leave to go for a medical checkup,  especially when he has been doing this even before he became Mr. President. And when you look at it critically, it is not Mr. President we are talking, but it is about an institution, is the office of the president.

    Speaking further, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said that the life and security of the President Muhammadu Buhari are ten times much more important that that of the ordinary Nigerian and this, he said, is not only in Nigeria but anywhere in the world.

    His words: ''Anywhere in the world, the security of the president are 10 times more than that of any other person. Besides, when you say ‘change begins with me’ it is about attitude, attitude to life, to punctuality, to honesty, to integrity. Yes, we also campaigned that we must buy made in Nigeria goods, wearing made in Nigeria clothes, of course yes, but it does not mean that if the President of your country goes on vacation he cannot take that opportunity to  have medical checkup., he added.

  • Shocking! FG blows hot, tells Bring Back Our Girls group, 'Chibok Girls not in Aso Villa', gives reason why it couldn't secure more releases

    02/Feb/2017 // 1280 Viewers

     

    PARIS, FEBRUARY 2, 2017: (DGW) THE Nigerian government has finally thrown in the towel as the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, finally drops the bombshell why the Federal Government it could not secure more releases of the rest of the  Chibok secondary abducted from a secondary dormitory.

    He stated this in an interview with Daily Sun newspapers published on February 2, 2017. He criticized the activities of the 'Bring Back Our Girls group which he said are becoming an irritating lot because the government has done exceeding well by carrying them along while in search of the girls.

    Further in the interview, the minister gave reasons why it could not secure the release of other who are still in the custody of the terrorists and he gave the military a pat on the back for toiling night and day in search of the rest of them.

    According to him, the government has worked so well that led to the release of the 21 girls and could not say why the others were not released. This, he blamed on the party the government has been negotiating with which probably felt the government has breached some of the agreements.

    He said, ''The dividend of that was the release of those 21 girls and who knows we probably would have gotten more than that if not because the party we were negotiating with felt that we breached some of the agreements. That is why we cannot even tell you the stage we have gotten.

    Below is an extract from the interview with Daily Sun newspapers:

    Excerpt:

    Towards the build up to the 2015 polls, the Bring Back Our Girls Group were your allies, but today you are referring to them as opposition, because you are in power. Some Nigerians believe this is not fair. What is your take?

    Honestly, I think people are not being fair. The Bring Back Our Girls is an advocacy group and they are playing a very good role in reminding the government that this matter is still not resolved, which is good. However, we believe that it is  not fair on their part not to take a holistic picture of the situation and it is because  we wanted to give them information, we wanted to carry them along that I invited  them to Yola and from Yola, we were flown to Sambisa, both in the morning and  night. We went to the entire area to see what the Army and the Air Force do on a  daily basis in the search of the Chibok girls.

    We were together for more than 24  hours with them, we took briefings. At the end of that trip, they admitted that, yes,  the federal government, especially the military is professional in its conduct and that they are committed to finding and rescuing these girls. When we talk about  Sambisa, it is not Jabi Park, it is 60,000 square kilometers, which is 18 times the  size of Lagos State. But despite that, the military has been able to secure the entire  Sambisa forest today. When we came back they now issued a statement in which  they said they will not tolerate any delay nor will they tolerate any excuse from government of Nigeria. It was at that point that I said wait a minute. You can’t start talking about delay or excuses from government. These girls have been kidnapped  400 full days before we came in, if anybody dilly-dallies; it was the other administration, not us. Negotiations are very delicate, negotiations are not something you can invite somebody to come and join you.

    You need to establish confidence building and trust. It took us a greater part of two years to be able to establish that trust and say look, these are the right people to talk to. The dividend of that was the release of those 21 girls and who knows we probably would have gotten more than that if not because the party we were negotiating with felt that we  breached some of the agreements. That is why we cannot even tell you the stage  we have gotten. There is the issue of national security in some of these  negotiations and that is why it is important for us to be careful in the way we go  about it.

    So we believed that after what we did, we took them along, they saw what the  military is doing and we explained to them that negotiations is a different thing,  negotiation is ongoing and is a 24/7 job but is very complex. For instance, when  you are meeting these people, don’t forget this is not a conventional war;  sometimes when you meet them they give you a window of four or five days to get some things done which is virtually impossible. So what we are saying is that as an advocacy group, you must show some understanding especially when we have been transparent with you. That was why I said if you want to do advocacy, stick to it and if it is opposition, stick to it, otherwise you cannot come back two days later  and start issuing ultimatum. When you say go and bring back our girls, it is as if  we are keeping them in the Villa. If we knew where they are we would have  brought them back long time ago. Again, even in negotiation, what would be  paramount to your mind is the safety of those girls.

  • Nigerian markets deserted as task force set for invasion to force down food stuff prices

    02/Feb/2017 // 3900 Viewers

     

    Moved by the need to enhance affordability of food prices across country, the Buhari administration has constituted a Presidential Task Force to urgently consider measures that would ensure a steady flow of produce to the market and reverse recent price increases.

    Giving the directive at the Federal Executive Council meeting, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, expressed concern at some of the inflationary rates of food prices, noting that the Task Force will explore options to promote availability and affordability of food items to Nigerians.

    According to him, the Task Force, which has seven days from today to report back to the Council will consider how to remove some of the cost-raising factors that come into play between the farms and the markets and therefore “bring relief to our people.”

    While there have been reports of bumper harvests in parts of the country, the prices of food stuff still end up rather high, while some of the produce even end up wasted due to a number of reasons preventing effective transportation delivery to the markets.

    One of the focus areas of the Task Force, the Ag. President noted, would be to review the transportation and preservation processes, and see how government can intervene in those aspects to bring down food prices.

    The Task Force, which would be meeting with the Ag. President in the discharge of its urgent assignment, will therefore draw out a practical plan and present same to the Council next week.

    Members of the Task Force include the following Minister of Agriculture & Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh
    Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun
    Minister of Industry, Trade & Development, Dr. Okey Enelamah
    Minister of Transportation, Honorable Rotimi Amaechi
    Minister for Water Resources, Engr. Suleiman
    Minister of Labour & Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige

    The Offices of the Chief of Staff to the President and the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs, would also be on the Task Force.

  • 'After BUHARI, it's TINUBU's turn to die, BIAFRANS must remain United in the struggle' - SNOCOL , Yoruba-led Nigerian Diasporan group says

    02/Feb/2017 // 4922 Viewers

     

    PARIS, FEBRUARY 2, 2017: (DGW) As the news of Buhari's death continue to spread like wildfire, a Yoruba-led Nigerian Diasporan group under the auspices of 'Save Nigeria Our Country O Lord' (SNOCOL) has called for dangerous prayers to God to eliminate the forces behind the installation of the APC-led Federal Government in Nigeria making particular reference to the National Leader of the governing All Progressives' Congress Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

    The group lamented the hardship going on in Nigeria which, they said, has reached an alarming crescendo resulting in the increase in suicide rate and other crimes of varying degree in the country.

    Speaking through its spokesperson, Engr. David Abiodun Aboderin, at its maiden meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark last night, he lamented Bola Ahmed Tinubu has succeeded in leading the southwest to form an alliance with the north that is telling perilously on the peaceful co-existence of Nigerians calling attention to the threats being breathed out by Nigeria's security agencies to men of God for daring to speak against the ills and evils of the day.

    On the economic scene, he said things are not getting better which is also taking a toll on the lives of Nigerians abroad. He said amid their lean resources overseas they have to spend extra money to maintain their well-wishers and families back home in Nigeria amid regular bills they pay to keep their lives going.

    Mr. Aboderin, a mechanical engineer by profession said it is time for Nigerians to embark on dangerous prayers to the Almighty God for Tinubu to die in order to stop him from doing further damage to Nigeria and Nigerians.

    The Ogun State-born Danish-trained mechanical engineer with Volvo motor corporation, Copenhagen minced no words in saying it is the cries of the socially helpless and deprived Nigerians to God that has probably led to the rumored death of Buhari which he also said will happen soon if it has not since the government still consistently denies.

    His words, '' We have seen the damage done to Nigeria when Tinubu campaigned vigorously for a lame duck who knows next to nothing in the build-up to the 2015 federal elections. It was a disaster from the onset which we saw but Tinubu played dangerously on the intelligence of Nigerians and had Buhari foisted on our gullible people in the southwest with his looted funds while he served as governor of Lagos State and gave southwest votes that saw the emergence of that demon Buhari.''

    ''In less than two years into the life of that administration in Nigeria, everything has crumbled and he is still talking justifying their reign of terror on our gullible people. This time around, he is morally bound to fail. I repeat with all emphasis and I call for dangerous prayers to strike Tinubu dead to free Nigeria and Nigerians from the frustration ravaging the land'', he lamented.

    On the planned protest by Tuface Idibia, he advised Nigerians to turn out en masse to join the protest against the Buhari-led Federal Government insisting it is their right to do so. Buhari and Tinubu, he said, who have now assumed the role of tin-gods over the Yorubas and indeed Nigerians deserve to die for Nigerians to have freedom and move forward.

    His words, 'We have heard of their plans to frustrate and disrupt the planned protest by Tuface Idibia. Who is behind this? It is the same Tinubu. So Tinubu must be removed dead or alive for Nigerians to have their way'', he declared.

    While not totally disagreeing with the APC government in Nigeria, he said he is particularly against the antics of Bola Tinubu and Muhammadu Buhari and indeed against another ìill-conceived plan'' to foist Buhari on Nigerians ahead of 2019 federal elections if he is not dead already.

    According to him, ''the prayers of the saints will kill Tinubu before 2019 as a result of his plan to further cause damage to Nigeria with his ill-gotten gains to foist a man who is totally bankrupt in workable ideas on Nigerians when the country is still groaning under the heavy  burden caused by Buhari's ineptitude and incompetence.''

    Nigeria, he said, is on the brink of collapse today as many separatist groups have emerged in the southeast calling attention to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) While justifying their agitation, SNOCOL spokesperson, Mr.Aboderin said the Igbos have the right to secede from Nigeria calling  attention to the UN and Africa Charters that allow for secession when any race or tribe becomes an endangered species in any contraption such as Nigeria.

  • Surprise as Pastor Adeboye bombs Nigerian Churches' leaders

    02/Feb/2017 // 2538 Viewers

     

    The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said there is dearth of good leadership in the country, adding that the church is the worst hit.

    Adeboye explained that the problem of corruption in Nigeria was traceable to lack of contentment and greed.

    The cleric spoke on Wednesday in Ikeja, Lagos, during the Third Annual Birthday Public Lecture organised by the church to commemorate his 75th birthday.

    Adeboye, who was represented by his wife, Folu, expressed sadness at the lack of true leadership in the society, calling for a return to cultural values.

    He said, “Leadership is at the core of our problem in this nation. Some people sit in their room and comment on newspaper articles, but have you removed the log in your eyes?

    “If there is anywhere leadership should be recommended, it should be from the church. But it is unfortunate that the worst leadership is from the church. We should go and check ourselves. Are we in true leadership or we are in falsehood? Because this has been the groaning of my heart for many years and I pray about it fervently.

    “I challenge the leaders in this church that what the Bible says about elders, I have not seen it. But things are changing and I want us to be part of that change.

    “The problem of corruption which we have in this nation would not have been there if everybody is contented with what he or she has. But people love to do more than they have. They want to show off to their children, and the children also when they get to school or are with their colleagues, are not satisfied because they were not brought up to be satisfied.”

    Adeboye appealed to elders in the society to live in a way befitting of their status, adding that women should also train their children to positively influence their future.

    The guest speaker, Pastor Femi Atoyebi, who spoke on the theme, ‘Excellent Leadership in Pluralistic and Ethno-religious Society like Nigeria,’ lamented the decline in societal values and loss of respect for leadership and the constitution.

    Atoyebi, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, called for a separation between the office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice in order to ensure that no one is above the law.

    He said, “As long as there is no procedure in place to enforce the law against whoever breaches it, there will continue to be impunity. Even if it is the President, if we have people that can stand up to him, then we will move forward.

    “I have always advocated a system where we have an independent attorney general. We can have an attorney general that stands for an election and canvasses for votes, promising to defend the constitution and enforce the law. If a president or governor makes a law that is not right, he goes to court to challenge it.

    “But as long as the President fills the office of the attorney general and that of minister of justice, things cannot move forward. And to do this, you will have to approach the National Assembly “to rewrite the constitution, which is impossible at this point.”

  • Nigeria much better than it was 2 years ago under Jonathan, Nigerians now live better, comfortable lives

    02/Feb/2017 // 205121 Viewers

     

    PARIS, FEBRUARY 2, 2017: (DGW) THE Minister of Information, culture and tourism, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said that Nigeria is much better today under President Muhammadu Buhari than when the APC took over about two years ago considering the level of comfortable life Nigerians now enjoy as against the level of madness, indiscipline and impunity in Nigeria under Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

    While speaking in a chat with the Daily Sun, the information and culture minister admitted that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC was affected by the shock of the level of rot it met on ground when it took over power in 2015 which almost made Buhari to thrown in the towel but decided to soldier on because of his love for Nigeria.

    He said the change the change the APC promised Nigerians has started manifesting in every area of their national lives.

    According to him, “There is a change today in the way people view corruption than the way they use to view it before. You will never live your flamboyant lifestyle again. There's no denying the fact they now live better and comfortable lives.''

    “In 2014 or thereabout when the former President went to Kenya, there were about 100 private jets that went with him.

    “Let’s look at it, number one, we promised change and that change has come. There is change today from impunity to accountability and it means a lot. There is a change today from corruption to integrity, it means a lot.

    “What we did not know was the level of dirt and rottenness, the level of dirt and corruption is what we did not get. We knew things were bad but we did not know things were this bad.


    “We did not know before we came in that there was no savings at all.

    “Also, we did not know before we came in, the madness and scale of indiscipline and impunity.

    “It doesn’t matter what vision you have but if you don’t have the money to execute it is as if you are doing nothing.

    “So if anybody says we are overwhelmed, yes we are overwhelmed but not by the work but by the level of rottenness and we want to clean this rottenness and this is what we have been doing,” Mohammed added.

  • Finally, former President Jonathan breaks silence as he addresses United States Congress, speaks on N'Delta, challenges facing Christians in Nigeria

    02/Feb/2017 // 11613 Viewers

     

    PARIS, FEBRUARY 2, 2017: (DGW) The implementation of the resolutions of the 2014 national conference will prevent ethnic and religious tensions that lead to crises such as the ongoing southern Kaduna killings, former President Goodluck, has said.

    According to Ikechukwu Eze, his media aide, the Nigerian leader said this when he addressed the United States congress house sub-committee on Africa.

    President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed not to touch the report of the conference, which he described as a misplacement of priority.

    Eze said Jonathan also identified impunity as a factor that contributes to the reoccurrence of violence, noting that if those behind previous violence were not prosecuted, then like-minded individuals and groups would be emboldened to repeat the same act.

    He also spoke on the crisis in the Niger Delta region, and the challenges facing Christians in Nigeria.

    Eze said the meeting was part of efforts of the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation to fulfill its mission to promote peace and prosperity in Nigeria and Africa.

    He said the former president, who was invited by the US congress subcommittee, spoke in his capacity as chairman of the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation.

    Jonathan also spoke on his efforts to end impunity, specifically citing the case of Kabiru Sokoto, the mastermind of the Christmas Day bombing of Saint Theresa’s Catholic Church in Madalla, Niger state.

    Sokoto’s prosecution was the first of its kind in the trial of an attack on a place of worship in Nigeria.

    “That promise was fulfilled on the 20th of December 2013 when Kabiru Umar, aka Kabiru Sokoto, was sentenced to life imprisonment after my administration investigated that crime, identified him as the mastermind, arrested him and diligently prosecuted him and some of his associates,” Jonathan reportedly said.

    The former president added that his administration’s prosecution of the perpetrators of the deadly bombing of an office of the Independent National Electoral Commission also in Madalla on April 8, 2011 was the first successful prosecution of “terrorists” in Nigeria.

    On the Niger Delta, the former president said he fully aligned with the views of the national conference which called for true and fiscal federalism as the way out of agitations in the region and in other parts of Nigeria.

    He also said that interventionist agencies like the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) tend not to be effective due to over politicisation.

    The former president said the almost overnight development of a state like Akwa Ibom proved that what the region needed was resource control not interventionist agencies.

    The meeting was attended by chairman of the US house sub-committee on Africa, global health, global human rights and international organizations.
