Buhari shows humility by bowing to Obasanjo in Aso Rock.


President Muhammadu Buhari, as a sitting president, “bowed” to greet former president Olusegun Obasanjo during a meeting of the Council of State at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

This was revealed by President Buhari’s senior media adviser, Femi Adesina, in an opinion article on Friday.https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads?client=ca-pub-1883810847636355&output=html&h=250&slotname=6310719999&adk=2377790269&adf=3833061182&w=300&fwrn=7&lmt=1601744915&psa=1&guci=2.2.0.0.2.2.0.0&format=300×250&url=https%3A%2F%2Fstories.6chcdn.feednews.com%2Fnews%2Fdetail%2F6fefd31904b44362e18787e76dd7de78%3Fac%3Dwifi%26app_version%3D7.6.2254.150878%26client%3Dnews%26country%3Dng%26features%3D137438953229%26lang%3Den%26language%3Den%26low_perf%3Dtrue%26mode%3Dbody%26picture_less%3Ddisabled%26swdp%3D360%26uid%3Defa0cf92d2c6ed400508645e526abc2010025498&flash=0&wgl=1&tt_state=W3siaXNzdWVyT3JpZ2luIjoiaHR0cHM6Ly9hZHNlcnZpY2UuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbSIsInN0YXRlIjowfV0.&dt=1601744915146&bpp=49&bdt=15537&idt=709&shv=r20201001&cbv=r20190131&ptt=9&saldr=aa&abxe=1&cookie=ID%3D41e2047b082d909b%3AT%3D1601660053%3AS%3DALNI_MY82M4q27DuWU2BQ25QGHjkv4LYJg&prev_fmts=0x0&nras=1&correlator=2530071329500&frm=20&pv=1&ga_vid=705438440.1601660047&ga_sid=1601744916&ga_hid=437585991&ga_fc=0&iag=0&icsg=142641919&dssz=17&mdo=0&mso=0&u_tz=120&u_his=1&u_java=0&u_h=640&u_w=360&u_ah=640&u_aw=360&u_cd=32&u_nplug=0&u_nmime=0&adx=30&ady=544&biw=360&bih=475&scr_x=0&scr_y=0&eid=21066428%2C21066973&oid=3&pvsid=1668145093449248&pem=501&rx=0&eae=0&fc=1920&brdim=0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C360%2C0%2C360%2C475%2C360%2C475&vis=1&rsz=%7C%7CoeEbr%7C&abl=CS&pfx=0&fu=8192&bc=29&ifi=1&uci=a!1&btvi=1&xpc=DA814gXBRJ&p=https%3A//stories.6chcdn.feednews.com&dtd=770

Adesina was trying to explain how civil and humble his principal could be when he gave an example of the incident that took place in 2018.https://res-odx.op-mobile.opera.com/pagead?w=0&h=0&pk=s3349331957248&ct=&uc=true&cc=AU&lc=en&url=https%3A%2F%2Fstories.6chcdn.feednews.com%2Fnews%2Fdetail%2F6fefd31904b44362e18787e76dd7de78%3Fac%3Dwifi%26app_version%3D7.6.2254.150878%26client%3Dnews%26country%3Dng%26features%3D137438953229%26lang%3Den%26language%3Den%26low_perf%3Dtrue%26mode%3Dbody%26picture_less%3Ddisabled%26swdp%3D360%26uid%3Defa0cf92d2c6ed400508645e526abc2010025498&rf=&cst=UTF-8&title=QnVoYXJpIFNob3dlZCBIdW1pbGl0eSBCeSBCb3dpbmcgVG8gT2Jhc2Fuam8gQXQgQXNvIFJvY2sgyBGZW1pIEFkZXNpbmEgLSBPcGVyYSBOZXdzIE9mZmljaWFs&vr=stories.6chcdn.feednews.com&bl=en-AU&sh=640&sw=360&sch=3827&scw=360&scl=0&sct=0&tz=GMT%2B0200&vph=475&vpw=360&debug=false

The presidential aide said Buhari showed respect to Obasanjo at the Council of State meeting despite the fact that the former president had just written a letter criticising the administration of his boss.

Adesina said Buhari, however, shocked everyone when he “fired on all cylinders” in his October 1, 2020, independence day speech by attacking the country’s past leaders from 1999 to 2015.

He said, “President Buhari is a civil man. Too civil at times, if you ask me. Some people launch bilious attacks against him and the government he leads, simply because they got ejected from their perch as permanent landlords of the country. He tells you not to respond, and when he finally gives the permission, he says do it in the most civil manner possible. But in the National Day broadcast, the man came smoking.

Adesina quoted Buhari as saying: “Those who in 1999-2015 presided on near destruction of the country have now the impudence to attempt to criticize.”https://res-odx.op-mobile.opera.com/pagead?w=0&h=0&pk=s3480327769472&ct=&uc=true&cc=AU&lc=en&url=https%3A%2F%2Fstories.6chcdn.feednews.com%2Fnews%2Fdetail%2F6fefd31904b44362e18787e76dd7de78%3Fac%3Dwifi%26app_version%3D7.6.2254.150878%26client%3Dnews%26country%3Dng%26features%3D137438953229%26lang%3Den%26language%3Den%26low_perf%3Dtrue%26mode%3Dbody%26picture_less%3Ddisabled%26swdp%3D360%26uid%3Defa0cf92d2c6ed400508645e526abc2010025498&rf=&cst=UTF-8&title=QnVoYXJpIFNob3dlZCBIdW1pbGl0eSBCeSBCb3dpbmcgVG8gT2Jhc2Fuam8gQXQgQXNvIFJvY2sgyBGZW1pIEFkZXNpbmEgLSBPcGVyYSBOZXdzIE9mZmljaWFs&vr=stories.6chcdn.feednews.com&bl=en-AU&sh=640&sw=360&sch=3827&scw=360&scl=0&sct=0&tz=GMT%2B0200&vph=475&vpw=360&debug=false

He said, “Are the gloves off? Just some jabs, if I know this President. Too civil, almost to a fault. In early 2018, a professional letter writer had launched his usual assault, which he had done against all sitting Presidents in the country since 1979. And about a week or two later, the National Council of State meeting was summoned for the State House. With his pen still dripping vitriol, nay blood, the letter writer showed up.

“It was a matter of interest for us all in the Council Chamber, venue of the meeting, to see how President Buhari would react, coming face to face with the man with the poisoned pen. Absolute courtesy. He bowed to greet him. And throughout the meeting, whenever the man indicated that he needed to speak on any issue by pressing the microphone on his table, the President would say: “Yes sir.” Really, some people are respectful, almost to a fault. They still chase rats to people who they know are chasing snakes to them,” said the presidential aide.

Adesina, in apparent response to Obasanjo’s recent statement that the country was fast becoming a failed state under Buhari, said some “permanent critics” of the president were bent on making the citizens believe that his principal was responsible for the division and calls for secession in the country.

He noted that President Buhari, in his speech, admitted that unity, security, economy, amongst others, were challenges facing the country.

Adesina, however, said: “But our forebears knew that the country was not one, and needed to be meshed and solidified.

“That was Nigeria from the very beginning. Let no revisionists come to paint the unreal picture of an idyllic country, which has now been shot to ribbons. No, right from the outset, Nigeria had needed unification, and success at that quest had always been relative.

He added that, “Should we then throw up our hands in surrender, and say we live in a failed or failing state, as some permanent critics would have us believe? Not by any stretch of the imagination. It was time to build and pull TOGETHER, which is the theme of the 60th anniversary celebration. Now is the time to chart where we need to go, and how to get there.

“Curiously, those who romanticize a Nigeria that had always needed constant unification are the very ones that cause the greatest problems today. They claim our diversity has not been well managed, while they are the very ones whipping up divisive tendencies.

Boko haram leader shekau threaten to kill minister of communication.

Breaking: “I Swear To God, I Will Kill Minister Of Communication Soon, Buhari Is In Big Trouble – Shekau Make Serious Threat In New Video

The leader of the Boko Haram sect,Abubakar Shekau, has issued a threat to Isa Pantami, minister of communication and digital economy.

In a new video, the insurgent leader asked his men to go after Pantami for threatening to block the communication lines of the sect members.

He reminded the minister that his group killed a famous Kano cleric in 2007, saying a similar fate could befall Pantami.

“This video message is specifically released because of one man, who thinks he is knowledgeable. I want him to archive this message and continue referring to it till his death comes. From today onward, you will continue to live in sorrow, because I, Shekau, say so,” he said in the video released on Thursday.

“This warning is for Isa Ali Panatami; don’t think simply because you preach in English or because you are called a doctor, it means you have knowledge of Islam. You know nothing. Today you have become a minister, and you are feeling you can achieve your selfish ends. You must know that speaking English has nothing to do with Islam.

“You said you are going to block phone lines and other means of communication, to frustrate the activities of Boko Haram, right? But you must understand that we don’t depend on such to take out our messages. Our messengers are like the angels of God. How dare you attempt to stop the works we are doing for the creator of the heavens and earth, simply because you have become a slave to the white world and the country. We pity you if you don’t repent.

“I swear to God, you are nothing. Initially, we have not begrudged with you, but now you have become a slave to the infidels; repent now and become a good Muslim. If you don’t comply from now on, death will come to you, Isa Ali Pantami. I call on my members in Africa, in Nigeria to rise and do the needful. Let them know that what we did to Sheik Jafar is just the tip of the iceberg. Anywhere you see Isa Ali Pantami, don’t spare him. Isa Ali Pantami you are nothing; even Jafar tried the same thing but we dealt with him; talk less of you that is nothing in Islamic practice. And from today on, you would not have rest of mind because you have dared God.”

Shekau taunted President Muhammadu Buhari, making reference to how he was booed when he visited Maiduguri earlier in the week.

“And you, President Buhari, you said you are almost 80 years old and you are busy going about, and now your people have started booing, right? You just wait for your angels of death,” he said.

“Simply because some persons told you that they have killed our commanders, so now you are emboldened and you want to kill Shekau, right? Who is Shekau, a small person to you? But you are now in trouble Mr. Buhari; you are in big trouble. I am still here, that little boy that has defied the leaders of the world. I am still around, you just wait, it will soon be over before we all meet in the hereafter.”

He also threatened journalists, warning them to be cautious about how they report the activities of his group.

Borno Bomb Attack:why is Buhari always saying Bandit instead of Boko haram

Borno Bomb Attack: Why Does Buhari Prefer To Say Bandits Instead Of Boko Haram?

Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, may have been very cunning with his choice of words these days as it concerns insecurity and insurgency.

Image result for buhari

The president most likely has deliberately chosen to avoid certain words; take for instance, “Boko Haram”, which he has avoided to mention,  and instead opts for the choice of  “bandits”.

This was again brought to bear following the recent suicide bomb attack in Borno State that claimed more than 30 lives and injured many. President Buhari clearly employed this tactic again while reacting to the terror attack.

The attack happened on Sunday, in Konduga village in Borno State, according to officials of the state emergency management agency.

There is a conflicting report about whether the blast occurred while people were watching football or a film.

Even though no group has claimed responsibility for the attack, terrorist group, Boko Haram has been widely blamed for the attack, especially by international sources.

Reacting on Monday, a day after the attack, President Buhari deliberately avoided mentioning “Boko Haram” in his entire speech. while condoling the families of those affected, Buhari promised that “together we will defeat these bandits and criminals.’

“I commiserate with the families of the victims of yesterday’s Viewing Center bomb blasts in Mandarari, Konduga LGA of Borno State. My deepest condolences to all those affected.

“We will ensure that the perpetrators are found and brought to justice, and we will also continue to give our law enforcement agencies all the support and resources they require to prevent these attacks and keep our communities safe.

“In recent times we have established new Forward Operating Bases in vulnerable communities. We’re now set to launch more FOBs. We will scale up military operations while the States support with logistics and local intelligence. Together we will defeat these bandits and criminals.” Buhari said on Monday via Twitter.

If you read the above statement carefully, you would notice that the president deliberately left out words like; insurgents, insurgency, Boko Haram, Terrorists etc.

This, however, did not start today. This pattern actually dates back to 2016, just after the president claimed his government had technically defeated Boko Haram.

Boko Haram insurgency became a very debilitating scourge on the nation during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan. The northeast was the epicentre, the insurgents held sway in many local government areas while seizing many territories.

This was going to affect Jonathan who would face Buhari in the 2015 general elections. Buhari took advantage of a very “juicy” situation to rise to power. Amongst other promises, the promise to end insurgency was the loudest.

He would soon claim power from Jonathan and walk the talk.

Buhari’s assumed office in May 2015 and it wasn’t long until the administration came out to annoyance it had dealt with the insurgent group.

President Muhammadu Buhari personally told the BBC in December 2015 that Nigeria had “technically won the war” against Islamist Boko Haram militants.

According to him, the militant group could no longer mount “conventional attacks” against security forces or population centres.

Maybe this was a little premature from the president who was eager to impress following a bogus promise.

Since after the statement of technically defeating Boko Haram, the president started a trend of deliberately omitting words like insurgents, insurgency, Boko Haram, Terrorists and now seemed to have perfected it.

So if not to avoid contradicting himself regarding the 2015 claim of having technically defeated Boko Haram, what else would make the President deliberately omit to mention Boko Haram and rather uses Bandits to qualify insurgents.

Davido, Chioma Deny Being Duped By Ubi Franklin

Relationship

Davido has refuted claims that he and his girlfriend Chioma Rowland were duped by Ubi Franklin.

Following a false report that they were duped by the Made Men Music Group (MMMG) boss, the pop musician was forced to deny any such happening.

To refute the claim, Davido took to InstaStories to tag the report false.

Speculation leading to Ubi Franklin being tagged a fraud started when Chioma took to social media and threatened to sue an unidentified person in a post on InstaStories.

Meanwhile, Ubi Franklin has revealed that he is aware of the person behind the sponsored stories to tanish his image.

In a post, he thanked Davido for denying the report, adding that those responsible for the false stories would soon be too broke to maintain relevance in the music industry.
