Published

A Nigerian Activist by name Reno Omokri has taken to his Instagram to explain that the Igbos in Alaba Market (Lagos) generates annually $4 billion (N2 trilion).

This he said is according to findings of an American Economic Journalist, Robert Neuwirth.

In his words: “think about it for a minute. 10,000 Igbos generate more internal revenue than the 19 Northern states combined. To put this in perspective, note that Kaduna generated N44billion IGR last year and was celebrated by the Northern Governors Forum”.

He further advised that if the Igbos can unite politically the way they unite economically, they won’t need to beg for Igbo Presidency.

He added that they can raise billions of dollars for the right candidate. This is because they can afford to have a polling agent in each of the 120,000 polling units in Nigeria.

The day the Igbos wake up to their power, they will stop begging for power and start taking it, he concluded.

Gov Yahaya Bello: Kogi Has No Business With COVID, I Won’t Take Any Vaccine

Published

on

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi has reiterated that COVID-19 is not their business in the state.

Speaking on a Channels Television programme, Bello declared that he would neither take any vaccine nor compel anyone in the state to take it.

He said if the Federal Government is gracious enough to send the vaccine to the state, the government would accept it and ask anyone willing to take it to come forward.

It has been reported that there has been controversy between the Kogi State Government and federal health authorities over COVID-19 cases in the state.

The government of Bello has consistently declared that the state is COVID-19 free.

As the Federal Government rolled out the AstraZeneca Vaccine Jabs on Friday, Nigerians were encouraged to take the vaccine.

But the Kogi Governor restated that COVID-19 is not the business of the state.

Bello said, “COVID-19 is not our business in Kogi State. We are dealing with more serious issues in Kogi State, not COVID-19. COVID-19 is just the minutest aspect of what we are treating in Kogi State.

“There has been an outbreak of Lassa Fever, Yellow Fever and those were handled without making noise. On the last Yellow Fever outbreak, we vaccinated our people against it, we encouraged them, we educated them and they felt the impact because it ravaged some communities in Kogi State.

“They came up and we vaccinated them. So if the Federal Government is gracious enough to give us COVID-19 vaccines, we are only going to sensitize our people, whoever wishes to come and take should come forward and take the vaccination but I am not going to subject the people of Kogi State to vaccination. I will not make them the guinea pigs.”

Asked if he would join President Muhammadu Buhari to take the vaccine on live TV, he said, “Mr. President is the leader of this country. I respect him so much. All of us respect him so much. We love him and he is leading by example. If he needs to take the vaccine and he takes it, it is a welcome development. As far as I am concerned. I, as a person, don’t need to take a vaccine. Nothing is wrong with me, I am hale, hearty, 100 percent healthy. I can give you my health report anytime you desire it.”

‘Your Words Mean Nothing’ – Aisha Yesufu Slams Buhari

Published

on

Aisha Yesufu, a human rights activist, says the words of President Muhammadu Buhari “mean nothing”.

Reacting to the abduction of the students of Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State, Yesufu said the primary responsibility of government is to protect lives.

In a strongly worded statement on Friday night, Buhari had warned bandits that he would not fall for threats and blackmail.

He had also said that his government had the capacity to deal with them but has not taken drastic action to prevent a situation where captives are used as shields.

Yesufu said Nigerians are used to a president “whose words are meaningless”.

“What I make of the statement is absolutely nothing. We are used to a president whose words mean nothing. He says one thing, and another thing happens.”

“The body language of President Muhammadu Buhari enables the terrorists. They know that we have an ineffective President and Commander-In-Chief, we have an incompetent one a clueless one, who does not even bother about what is happening in the nation.

“Yesterday we buried seven military officers, the best that we have, the nation was in mourning and the President was a few minutes away from the location of the burial and didn’t even turn up, what does that signify? It Is high time we began to make serious demands on the president.

“It is not in our place to give the way forward. His salaries are being paid for it; his needs are being taken care of. He was voted to give the way forward,” she said.

Yesufu was a strong member of the #Bring Back Our Girls Movement, which was on the frontline of the campaign for the release of students abducted from Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, in 2014.

Up till dates, some of the students are still in captivity.
