The Nigeria Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has stated that the presidency will support Democratic candidate Joe Biden with $600m as a pay back to Trump who supported terrorists in Nigeria.

Speaking in Abuja, Lai Mohammed wonders why Trump who is claiming to be fighting ISIS is same person aiding the deadliest terrorist group called IPOB in Nigeria who are seeking to divide our nation.

Lai Mohammed also reacted to the letter written by the UK law makers which IPOB was signatory to.

According to the Minister,

“IPOB is a well known terrorist group which we have blacklisted in our country. This very group is more deadly than Boko Haram because they want to divide our nation.

“We have criminals like bandits and Boko Haram but they are not fighting to divide nigeria but just to make money but IPOB whom we are yet to get their source of finances are spending over $90000 monthly to make sure they destroy our nation.

“We have written to all government of the world to proscribed them but it is obvious that American president Donald Trump is the one aiding these terrorists.

“He even gave them the chance to Protest in their so called one million march, fortunately for us, Corona virus stopped it!.

“We are going to show Donald Trump that nigeria is a country he can’t mess up with unlike how he did to Iran.

“We will support Joe Biden with $600m to make sure he take over America and help us in dealing with these terrorists!.

“We will pay Trump back in less than a month from now and we are also charging NIGERIA media to start from the first week of October to campaign for Joe Biden!” He stated!.

A former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, says members of the House of Representatives who asked President Muhammadu Buhari to appear before the House should expect to be harassed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

“I will be surprised if the President honours the House of Reps’ invitation,” Fayose tweeted on Tuesday. “The National Assembly that is supposed to represent the people should know by now that in the eyes of this President, they only exist on paper because they are mere toothless bulldogs.

“Some of those Rep members should expect an EFCC invitation, freezing of their accounts or arrest for plotting to bring down the legitimate government of the President. I warned.”

The lawmakers had on Tuesday resolved to summon the President over the killing of more than 40 farmers in Borno State last weekend.

The farmers were attacked in Zabarmari area of Borno State by suspected members of Boko Haram, an Islamic terror organization.

The decision to summon the President followed a motion by members of the House from Borno who insisted that Buhari had to address them at the plenary.

Abubakar Shekau, leader of the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram, on Tuesday, revealed that the group killed 78 farmers and not 43.

Boko Haram attacked the farmers who were harvesting rice at Zabarmari community, in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State at the weekend.

Over 40 deaths were earlier reported and Governor Babagana Zulum told journalists that 43 farmers were killed.

However, in the video released on Tuesday, where Shekau boasted about the killing, the terrorist leader said they killed “at least 78 farmers”.

Akelicious had earlier reported that Shekau claimed responsibility for the killing, accusing the farmers of handing over their members to the Nigerian army.

He warned that those in the habit of sharing intelligence on the sect’s activities with the military will face the same fate.

Reps summon British envoy over Gowon, probe alleged payroll infractions
Spread the love

The House of Representatives, yesterday, summoned the British High Commissioner, Catriona Laing, over the claim by a member of the country’s parliament, Tom Tugendhat, that former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon (rtd), allegedly looted half of the treasury in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) when he held sway.

Adopting a motion sponsored by Yusuf Gagdi under matters of urgent importance at the plenary presided over by Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, the lower legislative chamber described the allegation, by chair of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee of the House of Commons, as a “deliberate action aimed at breaching the peace in Nigeria.”

The lawmakers said it was incumbent on the British envoy to explain why despite demands from citizens and government of Nigeria, Great Britain had failed to offer an apology for Tugendhat’s utterances.

They flayed the Briton for abusing parliamentary privilege to “disparage the person of General Yakubu Gowon, and to make statements against him which in other circumstances would be libelous and subject to sanction.”

The House, therefore, demanded a public apology from Tugendhat, and mandated Gbajabiamila to write his House of Commons counterpart, stating Nigeria’s position on the matter.

Gagdi, while moving the motion, argued that Tugendhat, at the time of the debate, never provided any evidence to back his weighty claim.

He regretted that the parliamentarian threw caution to the winds unmindful of the strong ties between both countries.
ALSO, the House Committee on Public Accounts (PAC) is launching a probe into allegations that the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS) was riddled with irregularities reportedly leading to alleged non-payment of salaries and allowances of federal civil servants

The Wole Oke-led panel initiated the inquest in the course of engaging tertiary institutions and other agencies on their financial audit reports for 2018-2019.

The committee was alarmed to observe leakages and sharp practices.

The legislators expressed reservations at the report of J.S. Tarkar University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Benue State.

Oke (PDP: Osun) made the disclosure while drilling Rector of Auchi Polytechnic, Edo State, Dr. Zubair Mustapha, on expenditure and audits of the tertiary institution for the period under review.

Mustapha told the committee that pending salaries for the years in question were due to anomalies in the IPPIS, a payroll system, introduced by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration in 2017.

“The backlog of salaries is from people who were not captured by IPPIS,” he added.

In a swift reaction, the panel chair said: “That’s why we must look into IPPIS. We were told here that the salaries of personnel of the University of Agriculture, Makurdi (Benue State) went into accounts of staff of Jigawa State. IPPIS must be investigated to detect some of the irregularities observed in the system. We have observed some serious irregularities in the system.”

The committee eventually resolved to write the Minister of Finance and Accountant General of the Federation to explain the alleged sleaze.
