Save Our Soul from Gov. Wike’s Killer Militia – TCCO

Published

on

Tonye

The Tonye Cole Campaign Organisation said it has come to their attention that the federal government with the help of soldiers of 6 Division Nigerian Army today dislodged over a hundred persons Gov. Nyesom Wike recruited and have been giving illegal military training at Nonwa, Tai Local Government Area of Rivers State, adding that the action should have been taken the very first day those individuals were assembled.

A statement circulated to journalists in Port Harcourt, Rivers State by the Chief Chidi Lloyd, Director General, Tonye Cole Campaign Organisation (TCCO) stated that Gov Wike embarked on the illegal recruitment and training of these hapless job-seekers preparatory to deploying them to kill, maim and rig the 2019 elections for him. Gov. Nyesom Wike had proceeded to recruit these persons and some military personnel as instructors despite a subsisting matter in an Abuja high court questioning the exercise.

The statement reads: “Disappointingly, the federal government until now appeared to treat such a sensitive matter bordering on treason under national security with kid gloves.

“We are aware that Gov. Nyesom Wike has already procured illegal arms for the private army he is setting up. Afraid that his illegal arms procurement and distribution may leak, he recently raised a false alarm alleging that the federal government was plotting to plant 800 arms in Rivers State. His false charge was to create an opportunity to blame the federal government should his deal be busted. He will simply claim that the arms were planted by the federal government as he earlier warned.

“It has become worrisome to the APC, law-abiding people and residents of Rivers State that the federal government allowed Gov. Wike to carry on with criminality in Rivers State with such reckless abandon. We ask: is it that the federal government has abandoned the law-abiding people of Rivers State to the vagaries of Wike’s whimsical and capricious mischievousness and wickedness?

“The governor knows that he embarked on an illegality of very serious proportion. If he was recruiting for a legal and noble cause, he should have publicly advertised the process so that the public will take advantage of it. He should have followed one of the key tenets of public procurement by emulating the federal government processes such as the N-Power which is advertised on print, electronic and online media for maximum reach.

“Gov. Wike should have known that the federal government will not sit by while he (Wike) recruited and trained militia to levy war on Nigerians and the Nigerian state. We cannot keep quiet and watch Gov. Wike employ his militant and cultist allies to kill, maim and rig elections for him. Of course, we will resist it even if the federal government did not respond.

“There are quite a number of serious things that will positively impact on the lives of our people which Gov. Wike should apply our commonwealth on instead of grooming a killing machine to turn Rivers State into a killing field as was the case in 2015 and has remained so ever since then.

“Gov. Wike should deploy our money to pay suffering pensioners. These largely senior citizens spent their useful lives serving the State. Today many of them are either living in penury or even dying because they cannot afford a single meal a day or treatment for their ailing health.

“We expect Gov. Wike to promote civil servants and pay them appropriately. He should even follow in the footstep of his predecessor who in one fell swoop employed 13,200 teachers and 400 doctors to fill up a yawning gap in the educational and health sectors respectively. In over 3 years in office, Gov. Wike has refused to promote civil servants while employment is a taboo to him. He fancies spending Rivers money on PDP and close lackeys while our people are left stranded in all the sectors.

“We would like Gov. Wike to realise the fact that Rivers State is bigger than him. We will not allow him to run the State like his fiefdom; Rivers State cannot be his gangster enclave where he alone holds sway, determines who lives and who dies.

“We know that we have unfortunately found ourselves under Wike’s insipid and dubious leadership but we cannot allow him to push his luck too far. Recruitment for whatever purpose should be transparent, reflect a cross section of Rivers society and not done under the table for a few hirelings of the governor.

“The governor seems to have created endless biometric exercises to punish civil servants and retirees just to deny them what is due this group of our people. Instead of using endless biometric exercises to play on the intelligence of workers and retirees, he should deploy our common patrimony to pay workers and retirees with the money to be saved from his dubious recruitment and training of militants and killers.

“We commend the military and particularly the Chief of Army Staff for rising up to the occasion today by nipping in the bud a process that would have spelt doom for our people. The federal government should, for once, stand up for us in Rivers State and put an end to this brazen affront on the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria and lack of respect for constituted authorities by Gov. Nyesom Wike.”

CAN Calls For Removal Of Tanko Muhammad As CJN

Published

on

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called for the removal of Tanko Muhammad as the Chief Justice of Nigeria.

This follows his call for the amendment of the constitution to accomodate more aspects of the Shari’a law.

Muhammad urged academics to champion the cause of redesigning the methods of teaching Shari’a law, while pointing out that implementation of his suggestions would be more feasible if universities give the Shari’a law its own faculty.

Hiwever, reacting to the comment credited to the CJN, CAN raised an alarm of a plan to islamize Nigeria and backed its claim by pointing out that the President’s recent appointment was in favour of a certain religion.

The Christian group also called for the removal of Tanko and the Chief Justice of Nigeria over the comment it described as reprehensible, reckless and insensitive.

According to the CAN, the CJN is religiously compromised and no longer trustworthy in the dispensation of justice.

A statement by CAN President, His Eminence, Rev Dr. Samson Ayokunle which issued by his Special Assistant (Media & Communications) Pastor Adebayo Oladeji reads:

 

“Our attention has been drawn to the advocacy of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammed for the amendment of the Constitution with a view to adding more Sharia contents.

“Justice Muhammed reportedly made the call while declaring open the 20th Annual Judges Conference at the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria Faculty of Law’s Moot Court.

“We have not seen the full text of the paper presented and we learnt the Chief Justice was represented at the event. So, it is difficult to know if the speech was that of the Chief Justice or his representative.

“We don’t believe that such a reckless and provocative statement could be made by the number one judicial officer in the country. How could the CJN say ‘We as Muslims have the numbers to amend the constitution’? It is not possible. It is either he was misquoted outright or quoted out of context.

“Asking for constitutional amendment with a view to adding more to the Sharia contents is ill-timed, provocative and unacceptable. Was the Chief Justice of Nigeria put there deliberately for the promotion of Islamic matters or to be unbiased and fair judge for all irrespective of religion? It appears from this statement (if he made it) that he was put there for Islamisation agenda.

“Those in government are warned not to use the cheap popularity or acceptance they seek to set two religious practitioners against each other.

“This type of statement, if true, is enough for the President of the country to initiate the removal of this Chief Justice from office. He is religiously biased and partisan. We have no more confidence in him. And we once again reiterate our advocacy for religious balanced in the appointments that are being made by the President.

“Lopsided appointments are direct contradictions to some portions of the 1999 Constitution (as amended). These include but not limited to Sections 10, 13 (3-4), 15 (2) (d) and (4). It is widely believed that no country survives two civil wars. Our leaders should be mindful of the complexities of the people they are leading.

“There have been Presidents, who are Christians. During their time, there was never a time they promoted their religion at the expense of others. Our leaders should stop paying lip service to the unity and peace of the country.

“Do we take it that what he said is the official position of this regime on inter-faith relations? Why has no one in leadership, either, the Executive or Legislative arm of government taken him up on it? The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) is eagerly awaiting the rebuttal of the Chief Justice of Nigeria on the unfortunate and unguarded utterances that can provoke a religious crisis in the country.”

FG Orders Turkish Airlines To Suspend Operations Into Nigeria

Published

on

Turkish Airlines has been ordered to suspend its operations into Nigeria by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The directive came through the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA).

The directive follows repeated cases of poor passenger treatment by the international carrier.

According to NCAA, the airline is expected to suspend its operations until it was ready to operate with the right size of aircraft that could transport all passengers with their baggage at the same time.

In recent times, there have been cases in which the airline failed to bring in passengers into Nigeria together with their checked-in baggage.

In a letter to the airline by the acting Director-General, NCAA, Capt. Abdullahi Sidi, which was made available by the Federal Ministry of Aviation in Abuja on Thursday, December 12th the authority expressed displeasure at the incidents, which it said had been going on for over two weeks.

Sidi said the incidents had become so bad that most recent Turkish Airlines flights arrived in Nigeria without more than 85 per cent of passengers’ baggage on board.

He said:

“Our airport authority has been facing a serious crisis controlling the passengers at the airport whenever they arrive without their baggage. This issue has made passengers to carry out several mob actions at our airports and it is a great threat to our airport facilities.

“In view of all these, and a series of meetings held with the Turkish Airlines personnel, which did not yield any solution to this problem, the NCAA is therefore left with no option than to direct Turkish Airlines to suspend its operations into Nigeria until such a time when the airline is ready to operate with the right size of aircraft that can transport all passengers with their baggage at the same time.

“If no remedial action is carried out by your airline, this suspension shall be effective from the 16th of December, 2019.”
