1. Okonjo-Iweala at war with SERAP
First, Serap institutes a lawsuit against Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala over the missing N30 trillion allegation by former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Chukwuma Soludo,
So far, that’s the extent of the exchange… at least for now.
2. Soldiers VS Civilians battle causes students to flee school
When two elephants engage in a battle, who suffers? – the ants of course.
The students of the Kaduna State College of Education fled for their lives on Monday, when soldiers and civilians clashed in a bloody confrontation.
“We received a coded message about a clash between soldiers and some of the local residents. The clash resulted in a few deaths. However, we are yet to confirm the cause of the fight and the actual number of casualty.”
3. Dumb Policeman kills dump-site digger over N200
A scavenger who is barely making ends meet has been shot dead by a gun-toting policeman.
Maybe not all policemen are mentally and psychologically fit to carry arms, no?
4. So, N4.97 billion has been spent by APC, PDP
Talk about a case of gross over-spending and illegality.
The Centre for Social Justice says that the two main opposition political parties – the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress have so far spent a whopping N4.97bn to publicise their presidential candidates.
Worse still, the Center says the N4.97bn spent on campaign for the presidential candidates of both political parties was a gross violation of the provisions of the Electoral Act.
5. Dear FG, give Aunty Oby a chance to dance
We look forward to two things- the rescue of the Chibok girls and the legendary dance steps of Obiageli Ezekwesili.
The former Minister for Education and campaigner of the #BringBackOurGirls, Dr. Obiageli Ezekwesili, says she would revel and celebrate when the Chibok girls are rescued by the Federal Government.
Yesterday, she tweeted: “When the news of the RESCUE of OUR Girls shall break someday soon, my legendary dance steps shall evolve.”
6. Niger Delta militants don’t mind if GEJ loses
A group of former Niger Delta militants, ‘Niger-Delta Coalition and Delta Coalition for Change’, has promised to support whomever emerges as President after the March 28th election.
“We are one Nigeria, let no one be troubled, pray for peace and free/fair election, whoever emerges as the next president of the federal republic of Nigeria should be giving the necessary support from the North, South, West and East of this great nation.”
We will only believe this when it happens.
7. Aviation Minister becomes victim of his system
In a case of classic irony, the Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka, was left stranded at the Abuja airport for a couple of hours on Monday.
Not surprisingly the airline responsible for the flight delay is Arik airline.
