Weed smokers war leads to closure of two schools – 7 important things you didn’t read yesterday (but should have)

by Kolapo Olapoju

 

1. Tambuwal is once again, secured

After being deprived of his security aides, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, must be glad to have them back.

On Thursday, he arrived at the National Assembly with the full complement of his Department of State Service details.

The Speaker’s DSS details were restored on Wednesday, more than four months after they were withdrawn on October 28, 2014 by the Inspector General of Police.

 

2. We’re not owing N600 billion, just N50 billion

The debt profile of Akwa Ibom state is just N50 billion, and not N600 billion… so get your facts right.

Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State has denied allegations that the state was in debt to the tune of N600 billion.

Akpabio says the state borrowed over N80 billion due to the dwindling economic fortunes to execute some star projects, N30 billion had been resettled with the possibility of further reducing the debt profile to N45 billion in the next two months.

 

3. Jega wants political parties, politicians to chill

INEC Chairman, Jega wants politicians and their parties to behave themselves

During a meeting with registered political parties in Abuja, he said some political parties and their candidates were heating up the polity.

He said it was “unfortunate that because of the actions of some political parties ‎with some candidates, a lot of tension has already been raised.”

 

4. Babangida is cool with the use of Card Readers

Former military President, General Ibrahim Babangida, has supported the use of card readers for the forthcoming general election.

“We must appreciate the creativity and innovation of the card reader which INEC has introduced to make for better election credibility and transparency.”

“In a digital world where almost everything is driven by technology, the offer of the card reader is a welcome development. We may not get to the fullest merit of this, but it is a good way to start.”

 

5. Party expels Presidential candidate, adopts GEJ

Rafiu Salau cannot be very happy with President Goodluck Jonathan, no way!

The Alliance for Democracy, AD, has adopted the President for the March 28 election… and has suspended its flagbearer.

“Our decision to endorse Dr. Goodluck Jonathan did not come easy. We had to critically compare his record with that of General Buhari and we can affirm that Jonathan has demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt that he is a true democrat.”

 

6. Weed smokers war leads to closure of two schools

Because some bozos couldn’t control their high, some pupils will be out of school temporarily.

A clash between smokers of Indian hemp in some parts of Osogbo has led to the closure of two schools.

The Osun State deputy governor, Mrs Titi Laoye Tomori, has ordered the immediate closure of two public schools located in Sabo and Aiyetoro areas, AUD Elementary School, Sabo and St James Elementary, Middle and High Schools.

 

7. Expect election violence in Lagos, Rivers, Kaduna

We would prefer to remain in denial on this one, and hope it turns out wrong.

Chairman, National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Prof Chidi Odinkalu disclosed yesterday that the commission has identified Lagos, Rivers and Kaduna states as areas that are prone to violence during and after the forthcoming general elections.

Everyday, it’s increasingly becoming obvious that the peace accord signed by political parties may just have been a waste of time.
