“Like Jesus, PDP people say they are being persecuted” – 7 important things you didn’t read yesterday (but should have)

by Kolapo Olapoju


1. If MTN is kicked out, your family member may lose their job

To all those clamouring for the ouster of South African businesses in Nigeria,- you just may be hurting yourself.

According to MTN’s Corporate Services Executive, Akinwale Goodluck, over 500,00 Nigerians are indirectly employed by the company.

As such, if they are shut down, many families will be affected.

“MTN Nigeria is a Nigerian business employing 99 per cent Nigerians. Out of our over 6,000 staff, only 12 are expatriates; the rest are Nigerians. Also, when you look at our value chain, over 500,000 Nigerians are gainfully employed indirectly by MTN. So, you see that attacking us or boycotting our services will negatively impact Nigerians, the very people we seek to serve and empower.”



2. Taraba state SSG has just sacrificed his house for democracy

For the love of democracy, the Taraba State Secretary to the State Government, doesn’t mind the fact that his house was burnt.

Barrister Gibon Timothy Kataps says that the burning and looting of his country home at Gyembu the headquarters of Sadauna local government area by thugs was a sacrifice to democracy.

Perhaps, Mr Kataps deserves a National award for his democratic sacrifice.




3. Why exactly is Nigeria planning to build a nuclear plant?

Millions of Nigerians are starving and we hear that our dear government, intends to spend billions of dollars on a nuclear plant.

The National Union of Electricity Employees believes that the Federal Government is building a nuclear plant facility.

The union has expressed concerns over what it says are possible adverse effects a nuclear plant may have on the country.

The union says there’s an ongoing discussion between the Nigeria Atomic Energy Commission and Russia’s Rosatom Corporation to build nuclear plants in Nigeria.




4. Like Jesus, PDP people say they are being persecuted.

Since losing the presidential election, governors and senators-elect of the Peoples Dmeocratic Party, claim to be suffering persecution… from the All Progressives Congress.

The PDP people say they are being harassed, intimidated and persecuted for various reasons.

After their meeting with the members of the National Working Committee of the party, the governors and senators-elect, couldn’t help but cry out.

But to whom, exactly?




5. Local government accounts frozen over excessive fraud

Local governments in Nigeria have proven to be a cesspool of waste and are as corrupt as other levels of government.

Ebonyi state House of Assembly has frozen the joint accounts, JAC, for the state and local government areas operated by the present administration.

The reason for the drastic action is due to the alarming level of fraud and financial misappropriation being perpetrated in the local government system.




6. Everybody… (even Buhari) roots for efficient Dr. Adesina

When you are good, you are good.

Minister for Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina, has proven himself and everything seems to be falling in place for him.

President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), has implored the Economic Community of West African States to support the candidacy of Adesina as the next president of the African Development Bank.

If indeed he gets the job, one wonders who will fill his shoes.




7. The killing spree continues in Rivers

Welcome to the jungle of Rivers!

Rivers state is gradually becoming a battleground, as people are reported to be dropping dead on a daily basis.

The post-election war between the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress, continues to persist.

According to the Rivers governor’s spokesperson, Ibim Semenitari, several APC members were killed on election day and days after the election, several are still being killed.
