How many employment opportunities have you created – Yoruba youths attack Buhari over ‘lazy comment’

Loading...

The Yoruba Youth Socio-cultural Association (YYSA) has taken a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari following his remark in London that Nigerian youths are lazy.

The youths who said contrary to what Buhari said, Nigerian youth are hardworking and industrious however declared that the President is totally out of point for making such remark

National Secretary of YYSA, Comrade Olawale Ajao in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Friday in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital while reacting to Buhari’s outburst lamented that it is unfortunate that, “President Buhari is fond of giving a negative remark about Nigeria whenever he talks abroad.”

Ajao said, “Hardly is there any country which youths are as hardworking as Nigeria in the whole world.”

According to him, “It is on record that, in 2014, when the Nigerian Immigrations announced mass vacancy, 6.5 million people in all 37 states of Nigeria (including the FCT) stormed various recruitment centres in the country for the 4000 vacant positions in the Nigeria Immigration Service. At least 16 job seekers were confirmed dead, and several scores of people were injured.

The major causes of death was due to overcrowding and stampede of the applicants. Was President Buhari unaware of this?”.

Ajao added that, “Millions of Nigerian youths invest heavily in education after which they are thrown into an oversaturated job market. Due to the fierce competition, ineffective labour laws and other socio-economic problems, graduates are either underemployed or face the risk of working more for less pay.”

To show the willingness of our youth to work, many ladies are despirate to the extent of offering themselves for adultery just because there are tired of being idle, just as majority of applicants compromise certain percentage of their salaries to the facilitators of the job”, he argued”.

Ajao said there are countless number of graduates trading in the market, driving commercial vehicles in towns and doing all sorts of menial jobs for survival.

He concluded tha, “We (YYSA) want Mr President to tell us how many employment opportunities his government has provided and how many Nigerians have turned down the job offers

“Nig Youths are Lazy…”: Northern Youth Replies Buhari

Mr President: Yes We Are Not Educated and Lazy – I wonder whose fault that is, By Ismaila Yahaya Kana

Of course Nigerians are ill educated Mr President and I wonder whose fault that is. Nigeria is also a mono-commodity economy and Nigerians have become largely lazy as a result of the free proceeds of the so called black gold. Again, I wonder whose fault that is.

Senate Mace: IgbereTv Fans Reacts, Blast APC Govt Over Insecurity In Nigeria

Following what could be term as National embarrassment after Thugs numbering 10 Invade National Assembly and made away with Mace which stance as a symbol of authority, IgbereTv fans have reacted blaming APC government for Insecurity in the country.

 

GeorgeSavior Emmanuel reacted saying “It is no clear how insecure Nigeria is, even inside chambers upon all the police and military escorts that normally push us off roads they could not do anything. Sham”

Another IgbereTv Fan on Facebook Oluwalade Mayowa Isaac post ” This is a great shame to the APC led administration, if the Senate house is not secured, even to the point of taking away the national treasure, so where in Nigeria is secured.

Franklyn Chidimkpa posted “There is no security again in the house ….Koko scam is a liar,d wan fool us again”

Breaking; Nigeria Senate Website Have Been Shutdown

The Senate website http://www.senate.gov.ng is suspended by its host, a USA based company, BlueHOSTS.

IgbereTv understand it Could be one of two things.
1. Unpaid bills, which cannot (actually) be more than $2,400
2. Violation of the hosts Terms of Service (ToS)

They know they must host with Galaxy Backbone, setup by Government for handling its Communications needs, has all its infrastructure in Nigeria and is sufficiently competent to meet and exceed the needs of the Senate, but a party divided against itself will obviously fall.

Where all over the world, nations are reacting to GDPR and protecting its citizens and their privacy, a Government is hosting its sovereign information overseas, cannot pay its bill which may be lower than my estimate by the way, but over-inflated because of graft.

Can you see the capital flight and the inefficiency? The lawmaking body has demonstrated that they don’t have trust in local hosting firm thereby jettisoning and dumping buy Nigeria to grow the Naira policy of Buhari.

Later some officials will come to ask you … “What do you know about websites?” and the need to continue with your ignorance in 2019!

Nigerian Millionaire Disguises As Market Beggar In Imo. See What Happened Next.(Video)

Imo State born philanthropist, Engr. Ndubuisi Emenike, the founder of the Ndubuisi Emenike Foundation on Wednesday the 11th April 2018 dressed as a wretched man and hit a popular market known as World Bank Market in Owerri the capital city of Imo State.

According to Darlington Flowrymz Ibekwe, the multi-millionaire who disguised himself as a beggar – went round the market begging for a sum of Two Thousand Naira (N2,000) and so many people turned him down, people laughed at him, some asked him to get out of their shops angrily, but in all these, he remained calm and kept asking.

Finally, a lady offered him one thousand naira and another offered him a thousand naira again making it the sum of two thousand naira, he then called both of them out, surprisingly in front of the whole market as his entourage of over seven (7) exotic cars drove in and he pulled out fresh cash bundles and rewarded them both with Two Hundred Thousand Naira (N200,000) each making it Four Hundred Thousand Naira (N400,000) and also returned their one thousand naira notes to them.

The World Bank Market Owerri was agog with lots of surprise as the philanthropist urged them to always lend a helping hand to those in need as they never know where their blessings might come from.

When asked why he demonstrated this act, he said; ”Today is my daughter’s birthday Kourtney Emenike and I couldn’t think of a better way of celebrating it if not touching lives”.

The beneficiaries were still in shock over what just happened as the Imo born millionaire hopped into his convoy and zoomed off.

Married Man Caught While Looking For A Hook Up As His Lonely Wife Laments. Details

A Nigerian man has revealed how a married man has been disturbing him for hook-up with another lady. According to Ben Victor, the unnamed man always requested for a hook up with a lady who resides outside Nigeria after pretending he is single.

Victor disclosed that he got to know that the man is legally married after his wife who even didn’t know what was happening – had a private chat with him (victor) on WhatsApp where she revealed that ‘loneliness is killing her’ despite living with her husband.

When the man was confronted for lying about being single, he said he’s no longer interested in the marriage and that he wants to break out from the ”cage”.

Below is what Ben Victor shared online;

There is this young man that has been disturbing me for hook up for marriage. He won’t request the usual hook up like others but will always insist he wants a lady residing outside Nigeria. But to my shock last night, I got to know that the lady that has been complaining to me about her husband is his wife. She was the lady we posted about last time who complained that loneliness is killing her.

She lives with the husband but it’s as if she lives alone. Last night, she chatted me up with the same complaint and for the first time, I asked her the husband’s Facebook name and she mentioned this same guy that has been disturbing me for hook up.

I chatted him up immediately and asked him why he is lying to me, he now said that his mind is no longer in the marriage. Meaning that he just want to get hooked up with a lady outside and run away, leaving her wife frustrated here.

If you were the wife and you get to know about this, what would you have done? And do you think I should let the innocent girl know about this?

Osinbajo Confirms Buhari’s Impotence” – Abimbola Adelakun

Abimbola Adelakun

If Vice President Yemi Osinbajo expected a public outrage at his latest revelation that the whopping sums of N 100 billion and $ 289 million were embezzled by the Goodluck Jonathan administration weeks to the 2015 elections, he must be disappointed by now.

Up till now , nobody is exactly asking for Jonathan’ s head on a spike . Osinbajo has confirmed people ’ s suspicion: that Buhari , the man who was elected to tear down the temple of corruption in Nigeria is not as potent a force as he was marketed . Nigerians that thought they were getting two raging bulls must be wondering how they ended up with these hand – wringing jokers .

Osinbajo should not be surprised at the yawns and wrinkled noses he got from Nigerians for his exposé , people now think that still blaming Jonathan is an old subterfuge considering everything else that has befallen us under Buhari . If Jonathan and his merry band stole so much and up till now , the best you do is throw out repetitive lines of how much he stole ; maybe you should not be in government . Nigerians voted you to fight corruption , not to join them to moan about it .

This day three years ago , it was five days before the presidential elections. Everywhere you turned at that time , you heard “ Sai Baba ” chanted to the tune of “ anti -corruption . ” Followers of the candidate and now President , Muhammadu Buhari , evangelized about the coming of this messiah whose no-nonsense stance will cleanse Nigeria ’ s Augean stables for good . Even his former foes forgave him without him asking .

Buhari himself, aware of the weight of expectations imposed on him , sold himself as the karma of corruption in Nigeria . Everywhere he went , he sang about fighting corruption and Nigerians rocked themselves to its sonic sensation .

When Buhari was first sworn in, bragging about what Jonathan’ s administration had done wrong was the most priced and bestselling share on the stock market , and the APC — still basking in the euphoria of unexpected victory — made huge dividends out of it . Almost three years after he was sworn in , the folks who rhapsodized about Buhari ’ s anti – corruption agenda have found that he was no different from his predecessor .

He is just as clueless , and corruption — Nigeria ’ s Frankenstein monster — has once again swallowed another one of its creators . Post- 2015 Nigeria is still in the doldrums of ineptitude , nepotism, tribalism , and uncontained violence.
Osinbajo is still talking about what Jonathan did wrong when their government has barely been able to do a single thing convincingly right .

Osinbajo was also quoted as saying that at some point , those who promoted strategic alliance contracts between the NNPC and the NDPC made away with almost one- tenth of our national reserves ! That is a mind – boggling amount . Such a theft ought to be thoroughly investigated and punished, and not just crunched into a sensational speech at an occasion .

Osinbajo , again , said that it was only in talking about such mega – thefts that we could resolve such thieving . True , he has a point that such scams need to be addressed, but he seems to forget that talking is all Buhari ’ s government has done till now . People are tired of accusations ; they are tiring and demoralizing .

What we want to see is what the government under his watch has done about such embezzlements . How many of those people have been tried and how many are on their way to jail now ? If nothing of the sort has been done, then what is the point of informing us who stole what? You are only confirming that you are weak, and your government is more or less a paper tiger.

Mentioning Jonathan’ s name alone used to be a potent means of whipping Nigerians into frenzied outrage about “ corruption, ” but people seem to be fatigued about the unending talk of what is wrong ; they want transparency , reforms , and action. They are bored with people like Osinbajo constantly revving the engine of a vehicle that has no wheels .

Not only are officials of this administration adept at just talk, they, in fact , act as a striptease . Just a few days ago , the Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption , Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), also said that if he released details of the allowances of the principal officers of the National Assembly, Nigerians would be shocked.

But what exactly would be shocking to Nigerians about his revelations considering that Sagay already informed Nigerians last year that lawmakers earned as much as N 29m monthly ? What else is “shockable ” about what he has to reveal ? At worst , he will reveal that Senate President , Bukola Saraki possibly earns N 1 bn monthly . Even if we find out that things are that sordid, what exactly is the reaction he expects the shock we will experience to solve ?

Sagay thinks Nigeria will explode if people find out what the lawmakers cost them but most people know , just like they know that Buhari ’ s budget is just as padded as was his predecessors ’ . They just insist on keeping their sanity intact by ignoring their thieving leaders.

I think Sagay — much like Peter Obi who also teased us with information about what governors earn — is overestimating the capability of Nigerians to be still shocked with the mindless looting that goes on in the country every day. Nigerians have come to realize that both the APC and the PDP are bad for their mental and moral health, and there is nothing one side can accuse the other of that it is not guilty of too.

That is why Osinbajo ’ s revelation did not get much more than sneers and jeers . He is working in an administration whose anti -corruption agenda has become more or less reduced to accusations and counter -accusations , and he wants us to be moved by Jonathan’ s profligacy .

Since Buhari became president , his cronies too have been accused of corruption, seven million people have lost their jobs between 2016 and 2017 , and Nigerians have yet to recover from the effects of a recession.

Think of the degree of violence that has occurred under Buhari , from the killings in Benue to Kaduna, Enugu , Taraba, and the abduction of girls in Dapchi . How about those for “ shock ” and explosion? If the country did not go on the streets to protest after Buhari spent half of last year abroad, and up till now he has still not accounted for how much his health cost the country, then what is Sagay worried about ?

There is every possibility that Osinbajo is right that Jonathan plundered the nation for his re – election . All the money Jonathan’ s administration spent in 2015 , particularly in the last few weeks of the election when he was crawling on his knees from churches to traditional rulers must have come from somewhere other than his pocket.

But Osinbajo will not get the reaction he expects from Nigerians this time because Buhari himself has not shown superior morals when it comes to the issue of dipping your hands into the national pockets . 1 n 2015 , Buhari did not finance his campaign with five loaves and two fishes. The money too came from somewhere , and we know it was not his putatively untainted pockets.

In fact , Buhari has that mystique about him : he has a way of making people believe he is personally not corrupt even though whenever he has needed money to finance his ambition , somebody’ s dirty hands have picked up the invoice . Up till now , nobody in the APC has had the honour or dignity to account for their campaign spending yet they cry about others’ faults .

By 2019 , they are likely to do exactly what they accuse Jonathan of : take money out of the national reserves to finance their campaigns too . That is why their moral posturing moves nobody whose head on his /her shoulders can think their way out of a paper bag .

SHARPEVILLE MASSACRE AND THE QUEST FOR HUMAN LIBERATION

Dapchi schoolgirls: Fani Kayode reveals what will happen to Buhari when truth behind abduction is out

Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, has reacted to the release of the abducted girls from Government Science School in Dapchi, Yobe State.

The former Minister, who expressed happiness at the return of the girls, however, described the abduction of Chibok and Dapchi girls as a “scam.”

 

In a tweet, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain stressed that the truth behind the two abductions will soon be exposed.

According to Fani-Kayode, the truth will shock Nigerians and they will “spit on the graves of Buhari and his collaborators.”

He wrote: “Happy that the Dapchi girls are home. Saddened that 5 died.

“The day the truth comes out about what really happened to the Chibok and Dapchi girls and those that were behind these 2 scams, Nigerians will be shocked and they will spit on the graves of Buhari and his collaborators.”

Recall that Boko Haram had recently abducted about 110 girls from Government Science Secondary School in Dapchi.

DAILY POST, had earlier reported the release of the schoolgirls. 

5-Month Old Baby Who Was Born Premature, Learns How To Swim. Photos

A premature baby who weighed less than 3lb when she was born 10 weeks early is now mastering the art of free diving. Mara Wasik isn’t quite five months old yet but she has already started swimming on her own under water.

Her mum Nikki said: “She is just a little mermaid. She has come through so much, against all the odds.”Mara – whose name is Gaelic for the sea – is already an old hand at swimming, reports the Daily Record .

And last week, her dad Shane, who swims with sharks for a living, gave her a taste of free diving. Shane, 37, said Mara is a natural water baby.

He added: “We have been swimming with Mara a few times but this was the first time I have tried to do something underwater.

“She is doing really well now after her rough start in the world. “She’ll soon be five months old and she’s taking to the water well. She’s not quite ready for the Atlantic yet but a 30 degree pool is fine.”

Mara was born 10 weeks early so because she was too small to feed, her birth weight of 3lb 6oz dropped to just 2lb 13oz.

She spent six weeks in a special baby care unit because she was so small.

Neo Black Movement of Africa (Black Axe) Speaks Over Abduction Yobe Schoolgirls.

The Neo-Black Movement of Africa (NBM) also known as Black Axe group has urged the Federal Government and security agencies to beef up security around educational institutions, girl schools, in the Northern region of the country.

Neo Black Movement of Africa

The group also asked the government to raise a special security outfit mainly to protect school girls nationwide.

In a statement, the movement’s president, Felix Kupa, following the recent abduction of 111 students of Government Girls Secondary School, Dapchi, Yobe State by Boko Haram insurgents, urged government to redouble efforts in ensuring the release of the girls and other kidnapped victims.

He also enjoined the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to end the insecurity in the land and ensure that the Nigerian child learns in an environment devoid of danger.

The statement reads in part: “The occurrences are a major security concern in Nigeria. Government should make sure that girls’ schools are safe. Ensure that they are getting quality education as well as see to the release of the other girls that are still in captivity.

“Though the Nigerian government is making considerable efforts to recover the school girls still in Boko Haram’s custody, we are concerned that the victims of this mass abductions have not benefited from comparable efforts to secure their release.”

NBM noted said that girls’ education was critical in the nation’s quest to right inequality and gender disparity, especially in the northern region.

It called for the release of the remaining Chibok girls as well as and other women and girls still held captive by the insurgents.

Herdsmen are not Fulani’s, they are from the Moon – FFK mocks

Read the article by FFK below…
“Labelling the attackers as Fulani is wrong. Fulani people are peaceful and live in harmony with other ethnicities. To call the killer herdsmen Fulani is a misnomer. They are just criminals and not Fulani criminals”- Vice President Atiku Abubakar, 11 March 2018, Thisday Newspaper.
Is it so difficult for us to accept the ugly truth and to call a spade a spade? Must we continue to mock the memories of those that have been slaughtered by shielding those who butchered them? Have we no shame or remorse? Are these childish semantics and infantile denials really necessary?
I have immense respect and affection for Vice President Atiku Abubakar and it stretches back for many years but this assertion shocks and surprises me. It is most unlike him to speak in this way. And I happen to know that he is far bigger and better than this.
There are however some ugly realities that we have to accept and live with in this country and this is one of them. Living in denial cannot solve the problem: it can only aggravate it and make it worse.
It is bad enough that hardly any Fulani leaders have come out to publicly condemn the activities of their herdsmen but to condemn the horrendous acts and then attempt to shield the racial identity of those behind it by saying that they are not Fulani is even worse.
Permit me to expand on this. Saying that the Fulani terrorists are not Fulani is rather like saying that Adolf Hitler’s Nazis, who gassed 6 million Jews to death in concentration camps during Word War 1, were not German. It is like saying that Abubakar Shekau and his Boko Haram footsoldiers, who have slaughtered thousands of our people over the last few years, are not Muslims and are not Nigerians.
It is like saying that the white Boers who owned and ran apartheid-South Africa, who slaughtered the black African population and who regarded them as nothing more than animals that were only fit for breeding and slave labour, were not caucasians and did not originally come from Holland in western Europe.
Such assertions fly in the face of logic, have no basis in veracity, are manifestly irrational and are deeply insulting. Not only are they deeply flawed but, worst of all, they are designed to conceal the truth and obstruct any future attempt to bring the perpertrators to justice.
And if Atiku Abubakar or anyone else insists on saying that the killer herdsmen are not Fulani then perhaps they could tell us exactly what they are, who they are and where they come from?
Are they from Mars? Are they from Pluto? Are they from the moon? Or are they from the dark and sinister Vulture Mountain and the infamous “land of the bitter waters” in Futa Jalon, Guniea?
Last year Governor Nasir El Rufai told the world that they are non-Nigerian Fulanis and that they were from Niger, Mali, Chad and other such places.
Atiku has now gone a step further by saying that they are not Fulani at all, whether local or foreign! This consistent and constant denial from Fulani leaders has to stop. They must accept the fact that some of their people are naturally murderous and they must do something about it.
We must not shy away from challenging anyone who attempts to becloud this issue or mislead the Nigerian people.
It does not matter if we happen to be in the same political party or in different ones. If anyone, no matter how highly placed or respected, crosses the line or indulges in any shape or form of mendacity and deception in this matter, we must and will call that person out.
That is what leadership is all about. And this is all the more important because the situation appears to be getting worse and, if we are not careful, it may escalate into a full scale religious and tribal war that would cause Nigeria to cease to exist.
Consider the words of Mr. Magnus Oraka who is from Jos and whose community was attacked just a few days ago.
He posted a moving and emotional video from his hometown on Facebook yesterday in which he spoke with courage and passion. He said,
“This Fulani attack and killing is war against Nigeria and war against Christians. It is not APC vs PDP, it is Muslim vs Christian. We don’t have weapons to defend ourselves, all we have are sticks. God Punish Buhari, God punish those of you that voted for Buhari, God punish those that are still supporting Buhari. Look at my face! I am in Jos: come and meet me!”
To butress his point about the religious dimension of the conflict, according to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) many Churches have been burnt down by Fulani herdsmen all over the country in the last three years. 60 of them were burnt down in Benue state in the last few weeks whilst over 1000 have been burnt down in Southern Kaduna alone in the last three years!
If this were simply a conflict over land rights and a struggle between tribes and ethnic nationalities why on earth are Churches being targetted by the Fulani as well?
Whichever way you look at it, clearly the victims and members of the indigenous communities that are under siege are getting fed up. Their backs are up against the wall and they are eager to defend themselves and hit back.
And given what they have been subjected to over the years and particulatly since Buhari came to power three years ago, who can blame them?
Most importantly they are under no illusion and have no doubt about who the aggressors, attackers and perpetrators are and where they come from.
The truth is that not only are these barbarians and genocidal maniacs that take delight in indulging in mass murders Fulani but they are also NIGERIAN Fulanis.
They are inspired, led, guided, funded, supported and protected by Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore and the Miyetti Allah Cattle Herders Association which are both organisations that are made up of Fulanis and that are headed by the Fulani Sultan of Sokoto and the Fulani Emir of Kano.
The Chairman of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, one Abdullahi Bello Bodejo, is Fulani as well just as are all the leaders of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association like one Garus Gololo. Finally their Life Patron is another Fulani by the name of President Muhammadu Buhari.
At one time or the other every single one of these individuals together with many other Fulani leaders such as the spokesman of the Arewa Consultative Forum, the notorious and rabidly pro-northern Fulani supremacist, Professor Ango Abdullahi, have tried to defend, justify and rationalise the outrageous and barbaric behaviour of their members and Fulani kinsmen.
They have said that the killings were inescapable, unpreventable and justified and that the Fulani herdsmen had every right to attack and slaughter innocent and defenceless people, including women and children, simply because those people were obstructing the free movement of Fulani cattle from one part of the country to another.
They also accused them of preventing the Fulani cows from eating their crops and of building houses on some fictitious and non-existent cattle routes which they claim that our erstwhile British colonial masters had allegedly granted them as far back as 1904!
Miyetti Allah itself went further by alluding to the fact that they were pleased with Buhari’s luke-warm and indifferent attitude to the whole matter and indeed the way that he has run the country over the last three years and that if he was not re-elected as President in 2019 they would “burn Nigeria to the ground”.
Knowing all this, for someone to now say that the killers are not Fulani is clearly an attempt to mislead the public and to befuddle the issues.
The Fulani leaders MUST accept that they own this problem and they must take full responsibility for the brutality, savagery and unacceptable behaviour of their people.
We must stop the deceit. There is no room for political correctness here or attempting to sweep the truth under the carpet. I say this because dozens of innocent people are being killed every day.
Furthermore it is disingenious and unfair to expect us not to call the terrorists who and what they really are: Fulani terrorists. We call them that because they are committing crimes against humanity and because they are members of the Fulani race.
If any Fulani leader is uncomfortable with that and do not want us to call them what they are then they are best advised to counsel and control their Fulani brothers and tell them to stop behaving like animals and killing our people.
Only a Fulani man will say that it is wrong or that it is a misnomer to call a killer Fulani herdsman and a Fulani terrorist what he is.
Such a man that is not ready to call a spade a spade cannot be taken seriously.
Let us make no mistake about it: todays struggle is not just about party politics or getting Buhari out of power in 2019.
The struggle is far bigger than that and it is essentially about securing our liberation. We are fighting to be free and to win our liberation from the hegemony, tyranny, cruelty and barbarity of the Fulani who have slaughtered our people like flies over the last three years and who insist on ruling our nation in perpetuity and turning us all into little more than paupers, beggars and slaves.
If that makes some uncomfortable it is simply too bad and it changes nothing. The truth is that it is time for us to call a spade a spade and to stop pampering the enemy or massaging his ego.
If the Fulani want to be treated with decorum, respect and affection and if any Fulani man ever wishes to have a hope in hell of being elected President of our country ever again, the genocide and ethnic cleansing that they unleash on our people on a daily basis must stop. Anything short of that is unacceptable.
Permit me to share the words of Mr. Samson Tannon Tongman who said the following:
“The agenda is bigger than Atiku. It is jihad, land grab and Islamization. All northerners must fall in line, including Atiku”.
This is an insighful and deeply profound observation. It also provides a veritable explanation for the doublespeak that virtually every single northern Muslim leader, including a liberal and otherwise benign and reasonable one like Atiku, indulges in when it comes to the nefarious and unspeakable atrocities of the Fulani herdsmen and terrorists.
It appears that Mr. Opeyemi Oluyade was right when he said,
“this is the time for liberation politics, not party politics: liberation from the Fulani”.
Permit me to conclude this contribution with the words of embattled Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state whose people have been subjected to nothing less than genocide and have suffered immeasurably at the hands of the Fulani terrorists in the last three years. A few days ago he hosted President Buhari in his state and said,
“On 30th May, 2017, the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore in a ‘World Press Conference’ held in Abuja, opposed the Ranching Law. They called on Fulani herders in all of West Africa to come into Benue to help them reclaim their land. In the same vein, Miyetti Allah Cattle Herders Association in their Press Conference declared that more blood will flow in Benue if the Ranching Law is not rescinded. Your Excellency, as a President that supports the Rule of Law, you will most certainly be offended by these hate speeches that may have crossed the red line. Your Excellency, how can a group claim responsibility for the killings that happened and are going about scot free? How can a group make public these inciting and criminal declarations in an organized society and are not arrested by the Police? Your Excellency, kindly order the immediate arrest and prosecution of the leadership of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore and Miyetti Cattle Breeders Association for carrying out their threats to attack Benue on account of the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law, 2017”.
This is wise and courageous counsel from Ortom and it is long overdue. I agree with him that the leaders of Miyetti Allah should be arrested but I would go a step further by suggesting that the organisation should also be proscribed and declared as a terrorist organisation.
From the foregoing it appears that not everyone has been fooled or persuaded by the misleading assertion and perfidious narrative that those that are carrying out the killings are not Fulani.
Governor Ortom knows that they are Fulani just as does every other discerning and sensible Nigerian.
Furthermore by stating their intention to spill even more blood and kill every soul in Benue state and elsewhere simply because of the passing of the Anti-Grazing Bill, Miyetti Allah have not only confessed to their heinous crimes against humanity but they have also relished them, boasted about them and have made it abundantly clear that they intend to kill many more innocent people, including women and children.
What more evidence do we need to prove that these terrorists and mass murderers are indeed Fulani and that they have no intention of stopping the carnage until the people of southern and Middle Belt Nigeria are either completely wiped out and ethnically cleansed off the face of the earth or are ready to submit to them, give them all their land, give them all their farms and bow to their cows?
Those that are eager to mislead the world, becloud the issues, brush the filth under the carpet and cover the tracks of these bloodthirsty beasts should answer that question.
Permit me to conclude this contribution with the following.
Every day since the beginning of this year Fulani terrorists have killed people in one part of Nigeria or the other and the number of those murdered over the last three years has entered into the thousands.
On Thursday 15th March 2018, 35 innocent people, including women and children, were slaughtered in Kogi state as well.
The state has not passed an Anti-Grazing Law, its people have not blocked any cow-grazing routes and it’s Governor, a young Igbira businessman by the name of Yahaya Bello, is a bumbling slave of the Fulani and a self-deprecating acolyte of Buhari who donated 15,000 hectares of state land to the herdsmen for the establishment of the infamous cattle ranches.
For those who say that the reason that the Fulani terrorists butcher innocent people is because of the Anti-Grazing Law, blocked grazing routes, hostility to them from the local indegenous population, hatred for Buhari or the refusal to establish cattle ranches, how do you explain this?
The truth is that there is no reason for their sociopathic and genocidal behaviour other than the fact that they are murderous by nature and they wish to wipe out entire indigenous populations all over Nigeria in order to take their land, steal their mineral resources, rape their women, conquer their souls, enslave their people and break their spirit.
It is their legendry brutality that qualified them to be the slave raiders for the Europeans and the Arabs during the days of the slave trade.
No-one, not even the cowards and quislings amongst us like Yahaya Bello that sell their souls and trade their birthright to them, that role out the red carpet to receive them and that bow and tremble before them are safe or exempt from their sociopathic barbarity and their psyhcopathic savagery.
That is a bitter lesson that many in our country still have to learn.
You cannot appease a ravenous and insatiable snake and you cannot befriend a wild and hungry beast.

From Being A Hotel Waiter To A Special Assistant To A Governor – Man Shares His Story. Photos

A special assistant to the Governor of Bayelsa State on Social media has shared his inspiring story to discourage  other job seekers from becoming idle and become a problem to the society. Abel Ifemi revealed how he hustled in a hotel after completion of his one year mandatory NYSC programme and was collecting N19,000 monthly to hold himself.

The young man who urged people to start something first no matter how small it is – took to Facebook to share his story. Read below;

I have no work to do that is why I am committing crimes. That is the most moronic excuse any young Man can give.

After graduation in 2011 and successful completion of the NYSC in 2012,I returned back to my State with the hope of having a good Job,but as all expectations were shattered and cuts off,after trekking the whole state with my big Brown file.

My next point of action wasn’t to commit crime by becoming a petty thief,but I kept hope alive and Started as a waiter in one of the hotels in town with 19k as my Monthly take home. 19k of a truth can’t sustain me for the Month,but It was the best option I took than to remain idle at home.

The above picture was my first day in office at that time.

 

 

You certainly don’t have any excuse to be idle and become a nuisance in the Society.

Try and get something doing and be hopeful to God!

Remember;For you to start small does not mean that you can’t make it big!
