5 Major Crises That Almost Wrecked Nigeria’s Unity in the year 2017

Arewa Youth October 1 Igbo Quit Notice

It will be recalled that Some Northern Nigeria youth groups on July 5, in Kaduna asked the Igbos in the State to leave and return to their south-eastern states. They declared “war” against all Igbos residing in the North, demanding they leave on or before October 1, 2017.
The groups that signed the declaration include Arewa Citizens Action for Change, Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, Arewa Youth Development Foundation, Arewa Students Forum and Northern Emancipation Network.

Despite the State Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s arrest order, they (Northern Youths) are still living large in the State, as Nigerians anticipate October 1, the country’s National Day.
Resume of Resign Protest

The #ResumeOrResign protest was led by popular entertainer, Charles Oputa also known as Charly Boy.

Dissatisfied with his prolonged medical vacation, area father as he is fondly called led the anti-Buhari protest, demanding that he (Buhari) returns and resume official duty or resigns from office.

The anti-Buhari protest was however suspended after about 10 days of commencement. The suspension also came a day after the protesters were attacked at the Wuse market in Abuja when they tried to mobilize people in the Market to join their course.

According to Charly Boy, the protest was suspended to save lives.

IPOB agitation for secession/referendum

Although, the secession agitation by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had been on before the President departed the country for medical treatment. But it garnered wider traction when its leader Nnamdi Kanu, who was granted bail by the Federal High Court, Abuja, began to disregard his bail conditions.

He was expressly barred by the court from attending any rally or granting any form of interview.

The group also intensified agitation when it said that the forthcoming Anambra State gubernatorial election will not hold unless a referendum is being conducted for its course.

Although reports have it that the group has withdrew its threat to stop the conduct of the November 18 governorship election in Anambra State.
Baddo cult group

Ikorodu area of Lagos State has been a ‘bad nightmare’ for its residents while the President was away. Members of the Baddo cult group are “serial ritual killers” who have been terrorizing residents of Ikorodu, molesting and killing residents of the area.
Many lives have been lost as a result of Baddo attack.

However, the Police recently discovered the group’s stronghold, a shrine located in the Agbowa area of the town.

In a video clip that went rife, the owner of the shrine identified as Alaka Abayomi, took police officers round the place, which had some graves.

Anambra bloodshed

No fewer than 15 people were confirmed dead in the recent gunmen attack at St Philips Catholic Church AmaKwa Ozubulu in Ekwusigo local government area of Anambra State.

The victims were killed while participating in the 6am Mass when the gunmen stormed the Church, blocking the Church entrance and began to shoot sporadically. The incident which got many injured was widely condemned.

The police have since arrested some suspects linked to the attacked.

Apart from the Catholic Church attack, another church – the Assemblies of God Church on the Oguta road Onitsha, Anambra State was also attacked, seven days after Ozubulu attack.

At the Assemblies Church, one policeman and a civilian got killed.

BIG SHAME:As ​Edo State Lawmakers Wrestles Fiercely to remove Speaker

We brought you reports yesterday that The speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Justin Okonoboh, has been impeached by lawmakers at the Assembly on Monday in Benin City, the state capital.

In a video clip that has gone viral on the Internet, lawmakers of the Edo state were seen wrestling vigorously in a free for all fight.

According to reports, 19 members of the state House of Assembly impeached the Speaker of the House, Mr Justin Okonoboh, his deputy, Mrs Elizabeth Atvie and the Majority Leader of the House, Folly Ogedengbe for alleged abuse of office.

The lawmakers accused the Speaker of abuse of office, illegal award of contract and high handedness.

The lawmakers consequently elected the former Chief whip of the House, Mr Kabiru Adjoto, representing Akoko Edo constituency 1 as the new Speaker, Victor Edoror (Esan Central) was elected Deputy Speaker while Rolland Asoro (Orhiomwon South) was elected Majority Leader.

As it is now, the political tripod of the state has changed as Edo North now has the Speaker, Central district the Deputy while Edo South where Governor Obaseki hails from now has the Majority Speaker position.

​Drama as Osinbajo compels Wike to enter same chopper with Amaechi, Abe 

It was a mild drama on Thursday as the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, was escorted to the commissioning of some projects in Rivers State by Minister for Transport, Rotimi Amaechi and Senator Magnus Abe.

It started when Amaechi stepped out of the Presidential Jet, with shouts of “the Lion” by APC faithful who besieged the airport, then next was Senator Magnus Ngei Abe.
Both Rivers APC leaders then walked down to where the chopper was waiting for Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
As the Acting President alighted from the Presidential Jet, he was received on hand by Gov. Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and a handful of traditional rulers and others who queued for a formal handshake with the visitor.
The climax was when Wike pointed at the already waiting BMW to chauffeur drive Osinbajo who insisted rather that they walked to the already waiting Chopper where Amaechi, Abe and others were already seated.
Wike worries were visible as he tried hard to convince the Acting President to go with him and commission just one project, but Osinbajo insisted that they head to the Chopper for the venue of the commissioning of the World standard Fertilizer project built by the INDORAMA Group.
Disappointed, the governor had to leave his aides, supporters and convoy behind and joined Osinbajo to the Chopper where APC faithful were already singing the praise of Amaechi.
As soon as the Acting President climbed into the Chopper and Wike made his way to join him, the youths began to boo him with shouts of, “Come down!, Come down!” while some others continued with shouts of “the Lion!” until the Chopper left.

Gov. Fayose Breaks Silence On Buhari’s Sudden Appearance, Releases Shocking Photo To The World, Exposes Amaechi, El-Rufai, Blatant Lies


Lere Olayinka, the Media Aide to the embattled Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has on Monday, released a shocking photo to Post-Nigeria, allegedly debunking the All Progressives Congress’s, APC, purported visit to President Muhammadu Buhari, in London.

Recall, that the Special Assistant to the President, Femi Adesina, had on Sunday night, released a statement that some APC Governors, including the Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi, met with Buhari, in London, on Sunday.

He had added that, the APC’s delegation spent more than an hour with Buhari over lunch, and it was very clear from the discussions, that he followed developments at home very closely.

He said the President was delighted to receive the delegation, and asked each Governor about affairs in his State.

He also asked Amaechi, about the state of the railways, among others, thereby rubbishing Sahara Reporters’ story, that Buhari had suffered from memory loss.

Adesina went as far as releasing pictures of the delegation having lunch with the President, including the one taken alone by the delegation, without Buhari.

While reacting to the news when Post-Nigeria finally got in touch with Fayose’s Aide, he faulted the authenticity of the picture, by forwarding the discrepancies of the photos to Post-Nigeria.

Lere Olayinka in a piece exclusively forwarded to Post-Nigeria wrote:

”1. Two pictures taken the same day and same venue, APC Chairman, Odigie Oyegun’s dress is different. Why?

”2. Pay more attention to the images in the MIRROR. Why is the different in style of caps of two of the images in the MIRROR, from the photograph?”

He finally added: ”Just using my brain and you can use yours too. Anyway, let’s wish our President soonest recovery.”

Recall, that The Ovation Magazine Publisher, Dele Momodu, had earlier stated that he called Amaechi, to confirm the authenticity of the visit.

However, Political Analysts have been asking when did Buhari decide to have one hour meeting with the APC delegation, whereas when Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, visited, it was allegedly reported that the Acting President, was only allowed to spend 5 minutes with him.

Buhari left the country on May 7, for medical treatment in the British capital.

This is the second time the President will be embarking on a medical vacation this year.

Saraki : I’m Happy that the Trial Has Commenced
Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki has said

Tribunal on asset declaration in 2003 has finally
commenced.
Saraki said the proceedings of today has given him
confidence that if the trial is conducted fairly he would
be vindicated.

prosecution tried to bring in some dramatic narratives,
it was clear that they were merely thrashing around and
hoping to titillate the public with salacious tales. He
added that he was hopeful however that when the time
comes, his lawyers will have the opportunity to present
his case.
