He said, “As long as the country is not united, as long as there is no peace, you cannot govern even in your own home, not to talk of a complex country like Nigeria, which is multi-ethnic and multi-religious.He also assured that he would not disappoint Nigerians if elected president.

IGP Condemns Act, As Officer In Viral Cult Video Identified and Arrested.

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, psc(+), NPM, fdc, has condemned the unruly conduct of the Police officer caught in a viral video, singing, dancing, and brandishing a rifle in praise of a particular confraternity (cult).

The officer has been identified as Corporal Matthew Isaac, attached to the Ebonyi State Police Command. The act of the officer in question, which is clearly calculated to portray the NPF negatively, is a discreditable conduct in line with the provisions of the First Schedule to Regulation 370 of the Police Regulations. His actions equally violated the provisions of the NPF Social Media Policy (SMP), penal laws, and other extant laws regulating the conduct and discipline of all Police officers.

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, psc(+), NPM, fdc, has directed the Commissioner of Police in charge of Ebonyi State to detail the Command’s OC Provost to hand over the erring officer to the Force Provost Marshall for necessary disciplinary actions.

The IGP further warned officers to ensure total compliance with the laws guiding the Force as any breach would be severely sanctioned. CSP OLUMUYIWA ADEJOBI, mnipr, mipraFORCE PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICER,FORCE HEADQUARTERS,ABUJA.

2023: Primate Ayodele Cautions Against Political Coup, Assassination Of Presidential Aspirants

Primate Elijah Ayodele, the Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church has warned about the possibility of a coup ahead of the 2023 elections.

Ayodele also stated that he foresees a political coup among politicians ahead of 2023, while warning of possible kidnapping and assassination of presidential aspirants.

This was contained in a statement released by his spokesman, Oluwatosin Osho.

The cleric urged Nigerians to pray against political assassination because most politicians would be used as scapegoats.

Primate Ayodele, however, assured that a military coup cannot happen in Nigeria.

“Military Coup cannot come to Nigeria, but let us pray against instability, attacks, political coup that will come up among politicians, because the majority of those coming out don’t have political IQ, and northerners determining who becomes the president in Nigeria is a suicide mission.

“If this continues, there is no way the unity of the country will not face troubles. Let us pray against political assassination. Most of those that want to become president will be used as scapegoats, let us pray against the kidnapping and assassination of presidential aspirants,” he said.

The man of God mentioned the names of some politicians who have bought presidential nomination forms, noting that they wasted several millions of naira because they won’t get their mission actualized.

“The likes of Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, Dave Umahi, Pius Anyin, Bala Mohammed, Dele Momodu, Emmanuel Udom, Fayose, Cosmos Ndukwe, Charles Okodili have all wasted money to buy presidential forms; they should have used the money to take care of people around them instead of spending it on a futile mission,” he stated.

I am coming back as Lagos state Governor in 2023, says Akinwunmi Ambode

Former Lagos State governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, has said he would unseat incumbent Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, in 2023.

The ex governor made this known through a body pushing for his return to office Akinwunmi Ambode Campaign Organisation (AMCO)

The chairman of AMCO and former Commissioner for Energy and Mineral resources, Wale Oluwo on Sunday said plans had been concluded to return Ambode to the governorship position in the state.

This is coming about a week after the Governor’s Advisory Council reportedly endorsed Sanwo-Olu for the second term in office.

The former governor’s group leader faulted GAC for endorsing Sanwo-Olu, saying the stance of GAC is not a total reflection of APC members

Oluwo said “Ambode is seriously interested in what happens in Lagos”, noting that the former governor had indicated readiness to stand by his ideals.

He claimed that feasibility studies have been conducted and that their outcome showed Lagosians were not getting dividends of democracy under the present administration compared to what was obtainable during the previous administration in the state.

Performance for performance, the administration of Sanwo-Olu cannot be compared to what Ambode achieved. You have to start with security and infrastructure, we can show a lot of things now. But for this government, well this is not the time to start tearing ourselves apart,” he said.

“The way that the GAC sponsored its candidate is the same way that we will do that for our own candidate too. And members of the party will have the option of determining which of the candidates, either AMCO or GAC, they will like to vote for. We acknowledge that Sanwo-Olu has picked his nomination form, the AMCO candidate will also do his own. And the primary will happen.

For AMCO, we are participating at all levels of the election. From Governorship to the House of Assembly. We will field candidates for all positions. Our candidate will not be Akinwunmi Ambode. That is not where we are going. We will present our own aspirant and he would challenge the governor for the seat in Lagos.

“The process of presenting our own candidate is almost concluded and I can assure you that by early next week, that candidate will be announced. The GAC is only promoting their own interest by announcing Sanwo-Olu’s as their candidate.”

“We are borrowing more and according to a friend of mine, we are moving steadily towards a state of bankruptcy, a whole nation…,” the cleric said.

“That is why we are going to pray so that our children and children’s children do not keep paying debt. We are still borrowing.”
