News Release: The Unbelievable Denial By Rivers State Police Commissioner


The world is held aghast at the barefaced lies and unbelievable denial by Mr. Foluso A. Adebanjo, the Rivers State Police Commissioner, concerning the massacre of Biafrans who came out on Friday, January 20th, 2017 to rally in support of Mr. Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America. In his denial speech, Mr. Adebanjo could not even differentiate between a protest and a rally, hence his ignorant reference to Biafrans‘ rally as a “protest.“ Given the antecedents of the uncouth and ill-trained Nigerian Policemen and other security agencies, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu published a letter which it sent to the Police Authorities in Rivers State which notified them of the upcoming rally.

Article: Stupid $15m Bribery Allegation Against Ibori


By Tony Eluemunor.

The former Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Chairman, Nuhu Ribadu,  has travelled the world just to dress himself in borrowed  and sanctimonious plumes; that he rejected a $15m bribe from Chief James Onanefe  Ibori. Yet, former President Olusegun Obasanjo has demolished Ribadu’s allegation by offering a new vista of looking at Ribadu’s claims.  Obasanjo said in his own book, “My Watch” (volume two) that he harassed Ibori to refund some money to Delta State and that even before the money came, he had opened an account at the CBN to warehouse the funds. Then, when the money was given to Ribadu, he asked Ribadu to treat it either as bribe or restitution – “any way” he liked. So, Obasanjo even claimed to have been aware of the money before it went to Ribadu.

Article: Why The Presidency Must Stick With Magu


By Godwin Onyeacholem

As some of the most disagreeable voices on and off the floor of the senate had threatened when the National Assembly was on recess, the so-called red chamber, on resumption, made good the recurrent ominous assertions by these elements. In a move that seemed like the senate was being propelled by a vengeful demon, Ali Ndume was removed as the senate leader. To say the least, his ouster had nothing to do with due process. It was a classic clinical act laced with all the ingredients of perfidy for which the current senate is notorious.

Àrticle: The Problem With Buhari’s Whistle-Blowing Policy

By SKC Ogbonnia

President Buhari’s new policy on whistle-blowing is revolutionary. Its goal is to broaden the attack on corruption by encouraging the general public to expose corrupt practices. The government will in turn reward those whose revelations result in recovery of funds or assets.  The mere fact that the corrupt arm of the Nigerian Senate is already angling to oppose the initiative is a whistling indication that the policy is geared towards the general good.
