Those asking for my recall from the senate are not even from my constituency – Dino Melaye

Senator Dino Melaye says some residents of his state that are seeking for his recall from the senate are not even members of his constituency and so their demands are not valid.

 Last week, a group of youths from Kogi state petitioned INEC asking for Melaye's recall following the release of a purported audio tape where a male voice allegedly that of Dino was discussing bribe with a female voice, alleged to be that of Justice Akon Ikpeme, the tribunal judge who handled his election case in 2015.

Speaking in an interview with Channels TV yesterday, Melaye said the youths demanding his recall are being sponsored by his state governor, Yahaya Bello and his political rival, Smart Adeyemi.

    “I am not scared, I am not perturbed. They are sponsored by Smart Adeyemi and my governor. And I want to tell you that those who even came to ask for the recall are not my constituents and it is unfortunate that they did not even know what to do. INEC told them to go back and do what they are suppo…

Presidency dismisses nepotism charges leveled against acting president, Yemi Osinbajo

The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Legal Matters, Dr Bilkisu Saidu, has dismissed recent comments credited to a faceless Social Media contributor using the name Ismaila Farouk from Zamfara State about appointments made by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, into some Federal agencies and the ones done in the office of the Vice President.

Dr Saidu, regarded as one of the foremost aides to the Acting President, spoke on "Shirin Safe", an interview programme on BBC Hausa Radio on Sunday. She was a law teacher from the Usmanu Dan Fodiyo University Sokoto before she was named an SSA in the Office of the Vice President last year.

She described the nepotism charges as simply laughable, untrue, unfair and should not be taken seriously.

According to her, contrary to Mr Farouk’s conclusions, most senior positions on the Vice President’s office are held by Muslims including by individuals who are from the north.

Said she, "If you are talking about religion, the mo…

President Trump has renewed his feud with the mayor of London on Sunday, portraying him as being soft on terrorism, just a day after seven people were killed and dozens more wounded in the latest attack in the British capital. Mr. Trump attacked the Mayor of London, Mayor Sadiq Khan after Mr. Khan told Londoners not “to be alarmed” by seeing more police officers on the streets.
The Mayor sated:
However, US President Donald Trump misunderstood what Mr. Khan had meant, thinking he meant that Londoners shouldn't be alarmed by terrorism. Trump tweeted:
 “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’.
Mr. Khan’s office dismissed Trump's post, saying the mayor was too busy to reply.

In a statement released online, a spokesman for the mayor said: “He has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump’s ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks urging Londoners not to be alarmed when th…

12 arrested after London attack; ISIS claims responsibility

The British authorities made 12 arrests and conducted extensive searches across an East London neighborhood Sunday, after a group of Jihadists attacked innocent people, leaving seven dead and dozens more injured. The SITE intelligence group said Sunday that the Islamic State claimed responsibility for Saturday's attacks.

Eyewitnesses even confirmed that the attackers yelled "this is for Allah,” while they committed the atrocities.
Police said a van plowed into pedestrians on London Bridge, then drove to the nearby Borough Market where the attackers went on a stabbing rampage. Armed officers confronted three suspects, who police said were wearing "hoax" suicide vests, at the market.

Prime Minister Theresa May said Sunday:
"It is time to say enough is enough,"  She called for tougher measures to contain Islamic extremism, saying the recent attacks are not directly linked, but “terrorism breeds terrorism.”

Osinbajo not favouring Christians, his stewards are Muslims – says aide

Senior special assistant on legal matters to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, Bilkisu Saidu, says that most senior positions in the office of her principal are held by northerners, and that his meals are even served by Muslims.

Saidu was reacting to comments credited to one Ismaila Farouk from Zamfara that appointments made by the acting president into some federal agencies and in his office were lopsided.

According to her, “most senior positions on the vice president’s office are held by Muslims including by individuals who are from the north”.

“If you are talking about religion, the most senior official or position in the Office of the Vice-President apart from the vice-president himself is the office of the deputy chief of staff to the president and the name of the person occupying that office is Abdulr…

Youth Group Refer To Fani Kayode As ''Uncouth, Rude And Crude'' For Using Abusive Language On The Social Media...

Youth For Change NG, an umbrella group of youths committed to enthroning decency in politics, has berated Mr Femi Fani-Kayode over his disparaging tweet against the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
 In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday, the group noted that Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, has the penchant for being “uncouth, rude and crude” in public discourse. The statement was signed by Mr Seun Bobade, national leader of the group.

 It said that the tweet credited to Fani-Kayode when he was reacting to comments made by Mohammed, during a television programme, “is unbecoming of a man who is supposed to be a father figure to all youths.” “We found Mr Fani-Kayode’s tweet extremely distasteful, very disgusting and unbecoming of a man who supposedly had good education.

 “How can Mr Fani-Kayode censure the young ones, including his own children, if they become uncouth, rude and crude in public discourse when he himself has now made such distasteful d…

Lai Mohammed Says Some People Are Trying To Destroy Nigeria By Spreading Fake News..

The Federal Government has urged Nigerians to be extra vigilant in view of the “worsening cases of fake news being spread by unscrupulous persons, who are bent on destabilizing the polity and causing disunity among the country’s various ethnic and religious groups”.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday, Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said over this weekend alone, several major cases of fake news were recorded, each of them capable of causing panic, triggering chaos or setting one group against the other.

He said a gory video of a blast that occurred many years ago was being circulated along with the false news of a bomb blast in Abuja, while news of a non-existent bomb blast in Lagos was also widely circulated, forcing the police to promptly debunk the fake news.

Mohammed also said the latest strategy being employed by thepurveyors of fake news is to attribute to top government officials improbable statements that are capable of destabilizing the polity, ca…
