Meet Thomas Fuller African slave whose mathematical ability shocked the world
The age-long imperialist notion that Africans were intellectually lower than their European counterparts, was proven wrong by the life of Thomas Fuller, an African slave with an incredible potential for mathematical calculation. Fuller's ability to offer prompt and accurate solutions to mathematical problems shocked white slave-masters, forcing them to reconsider their views on an average black man's worth.History concurs to the claim that the name Thomas Fuller (1710 – 1782), an African who was sold to America in 1724, is synonymous with mathematical genius. Popularly nicknamed 'Negro Tom', and described by his contemporaries as a very black man, Fuller's birth place seems to have been between what we now know as Liberia and Benin.READ ALSO: Retro: Meet the first European princess of African origin, Angela of LiechtensteinAfter being sold off as a slave from Africa at age 14 to a farmer in the United States (US), Negro Tom lived in Virginia, a place linked to why he was later called the Virginia calculator.No sooner had he arrived this strange land than the fame of his prowess in numeracy began to hit the white world. For instance, when asked how many seconds there were in a year by men of no small eminence and potentials in arithmetic, William Hartshorne and Samuel Coates, Fuller replied in two minutes: 47,304000, leaving his questioners lost in wonder and amazement.Towards his gray years, Hartshorne said of him: "He was gray-headed, and exhibited several other marks of the weakness of old age. He had worked hard upon a farm during the whole of life but had never been intemperate in the use of spirituous liquors. "He spoke with great respect of his mistress, and mentioned in a particular manner his obligations to her for refusing to sell him, which she had been tempted to by offers of large sums of money from several persons."Also, Coates, having remarked in his presence that it was a pity he had not an education equal to his genius, Fuller interjected: "No, Massa, it is best I had no learning, for many learned men be great fools."Perhaps one of his most outstanding feats was his brilliant reply to the question asked by one interrogator, "How many seconds has a man lived who is 70 years, 17 days and 12 hours old? " Fuller responded in less than two minutes: 2,210,500,800. Unsatisfied with the answer, one famous mathematician at the time approached Fuller, claiming that his result was wrong by some figures less. Fuller reminded him: "Stop master, you forget the leap year." Upon including the amount of the seconds of the leap years, the calculation of the whole in both sums matched perfectly. As Fuller's mettle in calculation continued to rise, anti-slavery campaigners thought it wise to use him in staging several demonstrations that Africans were in no way inferior to Europeans.Regrettably, he died at age 72, with little or no formal learning in writing and reading. But even if he had no academic certificate bearing his name, the life and ti

2019 election: What God will do to Buhari, APC - Prophet Olagunju - Daily Post Nigeria
The Presiding Bishop of Divine Seed of God Chapel Ministries, Prophet Wale Olagunju has revealed what God told him concerning President Muhammdu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2019. Bishop Olagunju said even if President Buhari decides to red-carpet the whole nation, he will still lose the presidential election. He said God has condemned Buhari to defeat already because he (Buhari) placed his Fulani people in charge of security in the country and allowed killing of innocent Nigerians on a daily basis. Speaking with the Sun, the cleric claimed that it was not in the mind of God for Buhari to rule beyond 2019, adding that the President has failed Nigerians. Olagunju said, “Let me give you my own biblical view, whenever there is injustice there will be no peace. Forget about those bishops who are saying it shall be well with Nigeria. “I am a die-hard supporter of Buhari in those days. One, to me his war against corruption is too selective. “Buhari should know that corruption is a sin against God and mankind, so war against it should be total. I expect him to restructure Nigeria to balance the equation. “He should conduct transparent censors to address the injustice that is going on in this country, create job opportunity for the youths who are roaming the streets and address the problem of tribalism in the nation, correct the lopsided appointments. “It is not in the mind set of God for Buhari to rule beyond May 29, 2019. Look at the just concluded bye-election in Oyo State, yes, PDP floored APC hands down. This is just the beginning of what awaits Buhari and his APC come 2019. “As earlier predicted by me in my prophecy of 2017 and 2018, let me be frank and declare before God of heaven and the whole earth, even if Buhari should red carpet the whole nation, Buhari and his APC will not win the 2019 presidential election. “In my 2017 prophecy, the Lord told me He would raise adversaries against him and even his own kinsmen, the Hausas would disown him. What are we witnessing now? The Lord gave me the signs through my prophecy; there is no way he can win. “Some Nigerians in their own thinking has said that Buhari is a man of integrity. Where lies the integrity in the life of Buhari when he chose his own people, the Fulanis to manage the security affairs of this nation, shedding innocent blood on daily basis, marginalising the Christians and the Igbo have no say in the affairs of Nigerian nation? Why? “To me, the thinking of those who are supporting Buhari today is upside down. Under Buhari, the government doesn’t value integrity and value system is no more.”

How I escaped plot to stop me from Tuesday plenary - Saraki - Daily Post Nigeria
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, on Tuesday, explained how he escaped alleged ploys by security operatives to stop him from presiding over plenary on Tuesday morning.  Recall that Security agencies early Tuesday morning laid siege on the homes of Saraki and the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu in Abuja.  The move is said to be a ploy to prevent them from making it to the National Assembly today because of a plan by many lawmakers to decamp from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).  Saraki, however, made his way to the Senate chamber at about 10:40 am. and presided over the plenary.  His deputy, Ekweremadu did not make it to plenary and the siege on his home was still on at midday.  Reacting to a motion on the siege on his home and that of his deputy, Saraki said the plenary would not have held if not for his preparation.  “The road leading to my place was cordoned off and all cars coming in and out as early as 6:30 were being stopped and you have to come down.  “My convoy was stopped from moving. Given something that one was prepared for, I had my own car too. So the deputy senate president called me and said he could not come here.  “And as you are all aware, very late yesterday, at about 8 p.m., I received a letter asking me to report to the police on a case of this Offa robbery which had been concluded before now.”  Saraki, however, condemned the siege saying it was God that made him escape it.  “But as you all rightly said, if one of our colleagues cannot come out for no fault of his, I don’t see how we can continue to sit and ignore the fact that a presiding officer cannot be here.  “And if it was by the plan, I too, would not be here.  “It was just by the intervention of the almighty God that I was able to get myself here.”

2019: Why we'll break out of Nigeria in 2019 - Yoruba coalition - Daily Post Nigeria
A coalition groups in the South West under the Yoruba Self-Determination Advancement Forum has described restructuring as the only lifeline for Nigeria’s survival.  They threatened that the Yoruba will break away from Nigeria if there is no urgent move to restructure the country.  The coalition, which comprises over 60 Yoruba self-determination platforms, said yesterday that restructuring would be its negotiating tool to support any presidential candidate in next year’s general elections.  YOSEDAF said it was open to negotiation with former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar; a former Central Bank of Nigeria Deputy Governor, Kingsley Moghalu, or any other presidential candidate who has strong commitment to restructure the country.  In a statement jointly signed by its Convener, Evangelist ‘Kunle Adesokan, and Secretary, Kola Are, YOSEDAF passed a vote of no confidence on President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, saying things had worsened since his assumption of office three years ago.  The coalition accused the All Progressives Congress of reneging on its promise to restructure the country, noting that, “instead of restructuring, expansionist agenda, under the guise of cattle business with land-grabbing as the ultimate goal, has torpedoed the fragile unity of the country more than ever before.”  It said with the situation on the ground, the Yoruba were seriously contemplating “the likelihood of exiting Nigeria.”  “Indeed, that route is no longer a foreclosed option in the light of prevailing circumstances in the country since the injustice of June 12 was perpetrated,” it said.  “Our desire is that political participation would be based on restructuring and genuine federalism. In the last 19 years, however, our elite have either watered down our democratic ideals or consciously abandoned them.  “Those who rode to power on the back of such popular quests are today the greatest apologists of one Nigeria, at all costs – even at the expense of the Yoruba people.  “They really do not care if marauding herdsmen unleash terror on their people, insofar as they are in control of the government in the South-West. Such arrant nonsense cannot be allowed to continue,” the coalition said.  YOSEDAF said despite that Atiku was being accused of corruption, if he could guarantee the coalition of his readiness to restructure the country, YOSEDAF would support him.  He added, “You will come and sit down with us; we will negotiate and have an agreement. If it is a thief, (someone) that people have said is a thief, go and try him. If he is an armed robber, go and try him. If he is somebody without a certificate, charge him.  “Whether it is Moghalu, if he is able to guarantee that restructuring, let him come and negotiate with us and sign.”

What we did to Biafran soldiers during the civil war – Gen Onoja - Daily Post Nigeria
Former military governor of Katsina and Plateau States, General Lawrence Onoja has revealed his civil war memoirs.  Onoja, 70, who fought gallantly during the civil war, which lasted between 1967 and 1970, recalled his encounter with the Biafran soldiers.  The retired war hero, said his surviving the war was a miracle of God, noting that many of his friends could not make it.  Speaking with DAILY POST, Onoja, a native of Benue State, recalled how they would send cigarettes and beer across the water to some Biafran soldiers during the war.  He said, “Surviving the war was a miracle of God. A lot of Idoma officers, who were with me in Port Harcourtwere killed. I remember when they brought the dead bodies of George Lawani (younger brother to former deputy governor of BenueState) Col Shambe, a Tiv man, Francis Oluma, a native of Adoka here in Benue. I was very young.  “One day, I just received a call from the late Benjamin Adekunle (Black Scorpion) in front of his office. I could remember vividly that what was written on the steel helmet in front of his office was ‘enter my office at the pain of death.’  “Adekunle posted me to meet my kinsman, Ignatius Obeya who was the then Brigadier Commander at Itu, CrossRiver State.  “At that time, you couldn’t connect Port Harcourt from Calabar because there no road, you had to go through Aba, which was already held by Biafra.  “So, we had to connect through Igwenga to Abak, then we connected Oron before finally crossing to Calabar.  “I reported to Brig Obeya, Rtd and I was part of the operation from crossing Calabar to Itu through a river called Ikoto Okpora. I was made a brigade major to Obeya to ensure that the three battalions in the brigade were effectually controlled and commanded to fight the war.  “We were facing a place called Arochukwu across the water at the time. The Biafran were on the other side while the Nigerian troops were on this side. It was very funny, because every morning, we would wake up and talked to ourselves across the water. The Biafra soldiers would tell us, Gowon and Ojukwu are enjoying themselves in Aburi and we are busy fighting ourselves, please give us some food, we would then throw cigarettes and sometimes beer to them across the water  “But after at about an hour, we would start shooting at ourselves. I went through all this and came out alive, I think at 70, I would say I am a fulfilled man.”

Again, Obasanjo blasts Nigeria’s leadership, condemns siege against Saraki, others - Daily Post Nige
Former president, Olusegun Obasanjo has again attributed Nigeria’s under-performance to the problem of leadership.  Speaking when he granted audience to a PDP Presidential Aspirant, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, SAN, at his residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State on Thursday, the ex-President, however, said that he had not lost hope because God had blessed Nigeria with men and women of caliber who can stand their own in the world.  Chief Obasanjo, after listening to the speeches of Turaki and Boni Haruna (DG Kabiru Tanimu Turaki Campaign Organization), said “we are not short of leadership that can perform”.  The former President, who recalled that he consulted widely in 1998/1999 just as Turaki is doing now, revealed that he accepted to be drafted into the presidential campaign because of the need to unite the country.  “Listening to you, I believe you have got the concerns of Nigerians today in the area of security, economy and cohesion. Anybody who will lead Nigeria to the promised land will have my support,” Obasanjo said.  He condemned the siege laid to the residences of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, saying that was “embarrassed” by a number of things happening in the country.  “We are in a position to do better than what we are doing today”, he said.  Obasanjo further noted that what Turaki had been doing is to firm up and stabilize Nigeria’s democracy which, he believed is making some progress.  He explained that the statement he issued in January was not done frivolously, noting that a nation can be destroyed not necessarily when people are doing bad things but when people keep quiet when danger looms.  In his remark, Turaki who described Obasanjo as the ‘Father of Modern Nigeria’, said that it is people like him who speak truth to power that are working assiduously for a united country.  The aspirant stressed that there is need to take up the challenge of rescuing Nigerians from the plethora of problems such as insecurity, poverty, divisiveness and hopelessness confronting them today.  He said that with the support of respected leaders like Obasanjo “we know that we would be able to rescue our country as we have no other place to go.”

Blind cleric shares prophecies on Ekiti, 2019 elections, herdsmen killings - Daily Post Nigeria
A renowned blind cleric, Prophet Muyideen Kasali, has shared his vision on the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti.  He also advised the Federal Government to put an end to the insurgency and incessant killings in some parts of the country before the 2019 presidential election.  Kasali, who gave the advice on Saturday, said allowing the violence to go unabated may not augur well for Nigeria before, during and after the elections.  The popular cleric, who is the General Overseer of the Hour of Mercy Prayer Ministry Worldwide (Oke Alaseyori), spoke during the July edition of the monthly Hour of Mercy programme of the church in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.  He begged politicians in the state to eschew violence and not turn the state into a battle field in the name of election, saying God will avenge such unwholesome acts on the household of whoever is plotting such.  The cleric also said the 2018 governorship election in Ekiti State would be full of surprises.  “God told me mighty men will fall for in the election and the humble shall be exalted to bring a man after his heart to succeed Governor Ayodele Fayose. This He said will happen in a miraculous way.  “Politicians must not promote violence in the coming Ekiti election. God said He would visit His anger on the household of whoever does that. The results of the election must not be manipulated. Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and other stakeholders in the election must be fair and thorough in their conducts.  “Votes of Ekiti people must be allowed to count. The electoral process must not manipulated in favour of any candidate and actual winner declared winner of the election. God told me if the conduct of Ekiti election is fraudulent, the 2019 general election will fail.  “We must be careful to do the right thing concerning Ekiti elections otherwise, it may mark the end of democracy in the country. Thousands of vision and prophecies may not work.  “President Muhammdu Buhari must take the issue of security seriously in this country. If adequate security of lives and property cannot be guaranteed, God said we should forget the 2019 elections. ”  On the killer herdsmen activities in the country, the cleric said God is set to intervene in the situation as their operations will be curtailed soon.  “Power will change hand on the activities of the killer herdsmen soon. Their sponsors and promoters will soon be fish out, apprehended and prosecuted. God said we should relax and see what He is about to do about them.  “What we do not know is that, those that are behind their operations are somewhere plotting to wreak havoc on daily basis, but it is another thing and and different people we are suspecting to be the brains behind the heinous crime they are committing”.  Commenting on the plan by the federal government’s intention to establish cattle ranches across the country to curb herdsmen/ farmers clashes, Prophet Kasali said that may not be solution as other groups in the rel

BREAKING: Angry youths stop Ortom's convoy in Benue, insist he must not see Buhari, APC leaders [PHO
The convoy of Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, was on Wednesday forced to make U-Turn, after some angry youths in Makurdi barricaded the main road.  Ortom was on his way to Abuja, for the follow-up talk with the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on the peace deal offered by its National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.  Sensing that the Governor might have a change of mind after the Abuja meeting and would possibly return to APC, the youths blocked the main road with various inscriptions, urging Ortom not to go to Abuja.  An eyewitness account by Nelson Ogbu, says “The youths angrily removed the APC flag on the Governor’s vehicle and asked him to go back to Government House, threatening to vote him out if he insists on going to Abuja for the meeting”.  The Governor was said to have pleaded with the youths to allow him attend the meeting, assuring them that their interest would be protected.  “But the youths, however, refused, insisting that, the only option available to them was for the Governor to make a u turn”, the source added.

NASS crisis: Senator Olujimi reveals how PDP made Saraki Senate President, explains why APC can't im
The Deputy Minority Whip, Senator Biodun Olujimi, has stated that it was the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senators that installed Bukola Saraki, as the Senate President, adding that the All Progressives Congress, APC, lacks the majority to remove him.  She said the APC had lost its majority status in the chamber, noting that the PDP had the same number with the ruling party.  Olujimi dismissed the recent calls by the APC, its National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and Prof. Itse Sagay, Buhari’s aide for Saraki’s resignation on moral grounds.  “I don’t understand what they are saying because they need two-thirds majority to remove him. They should bring the numbers, that is all. They don’t need to talk on the pages of newspapers. They don’t even have a simple majority right now, we are equal,” She was quoted by Punch as saying.  The lawmaker explained further, “There are two in ADC, two in APGA, two are dead and one is incarcerated (jailed Senator Joshua Dariye).  “That is seven. Take that from the total 109, you will get 102. Each of the PDP and the APC has 51 members respectively.”  Olujimi added, “What is morality in 51-51. He [Saraki] is sitting atop same number as theirs. It is a different case if they have 70 or at least 65, then their majority will be clear.  “Again, how many of them were party to our electing the Senate President? Just a handful of them. It was majorly by PDP senators.  “Out of the 53 votes he got, we gave him 42 of them. So, what are they talking about? Fifty-three senators put him there, though, we were not complete then, but we gave him 42 votes. They should be rational,” the lawmaker added.

The footage, showing someone with a striking resemblance with the former minister fighting with another woman who looked like Adeosun, had recently gone viral on social media. Some Nigerians on social media had identified the two women as Oby Ezekwesili and Kemi Adeosun But reacting, Ezekwesili laughed off the clip, saying that those suggesting she was the one in the video must have eyesight problem. Ezeksweli wrote on Twitter, ”It appears some jokers are passing off another human being as “Oby Ezekwesili” in a video clip of two women brawling on board a flight. ”Please lend those jokers pairs of glasses & some of your intellect my dear friends. ”How could that flawlessly Yoruba speaking woman be me. ”Of course those jokers who desperately wish that I was the Yoruba mama in their airplane video will not see this post to disseminate. ”How can? Their eyesight problem worsens when anything good is written about Oby Ezekwesili.”

Plateau killings: Are you for Nigerians - Okogie queries Buhari, asks President to step down - Daily
A former Archbishop of the Catholic Arch Diocese of Lagos, Cardinal Anthony Olubunmi Okogie, has written President Muhammadu Buhari, demanding to know if the president is truly a Nigerian.  Okogie also asked President Buhari to renounce the presidential seat since he has failed to protect lives and property of Nigerians.  The cleric wondered why some All Progressives Congress, APC governors were busy dancing at the Eagles Square, Abuja while Nigerians were being slaughtered like cows in Plateau State last weekend.  He accused the President of deliberately refusing to stop killings perpetrated by Fulani militant, asking him to step down honourably.  The former Archbishop said this in an open letter to Buhari, entitled, “Dear Mr. President, Call a Spade a Spade.”  He said, “Dear Mr. President, we must call spade a spade. You were elected to protect the land and its people but neither is being protected under your watch.  “ You therefore have the most important decision of your career to make. And that decision is this : Are you for Nigerians or not?”  The cleric pointed out that the number of killings so far recorded under the Buhari – led administration showed that the government had failed on security.  He said, “The number ( of Nigerians ) killed under your watch, Mr. President, provides more than convincing evidence that the government you lead has failed to secure our lives. You are the Commander-in -Chief of the Armed Forces.  “If more than three years into your administration, you have been unable to stop these killings, why don’t you seriously consider the option of an honourable renunciation of the presidential seat?  “One of the major factors behind the patent failure of your government is the fact that you are surrounded by men and women who fail to tell you the truth about Nigeria and who shield you from seeing what is happening to the ordinary Nigerians .  “Instead of assisting you in the governance of this country, they insult those whose dissenting opinions you need if you are to succeed.  “How does one explain the fact that under your watch as the Commander – in – Chief, agencies established to maintain law and order, instead of protecting innocent citizens of this country, dissipate their energy running after members of opposing parties? Do you call that democracy?  “No right-thinking person would advocate letting anyone off who has committed a crime. No one is above the law, not even you, Mr. President. That is why the Constitution provides for a process of removing the President.  “That is why the point must also be made that those who contravene the laws of Nigeria be brought to book, irrespective of their political, regional, ethnic or religious affiliation. But the sad reality is: under your watch, that is not what is happening.  “A member of the Miyetti Allah appeared on television, justifying as retaliatory the killings in Plateau State. He was not the first member of the Miyetti Allah to make the statement.  “Nigerians

Should you drink garri during pregnancy?
A lot of Nigerians love to drink soaked garri on the daily without really thinking about the consequences. Today, we are going to explore whether there are any consequences of drinking garri during pregnancy. That way, you will know for sure if you need to stay away from your favourite drink while you are pregnant.What is garri?So what exactly is garri? Well, this word is usually used to describe a ground powdery substance made from cassava plants. The name ‘garri’ comes from a Hausa word garin, which means ‘grain’. It is actually a very popular foodstuff in Hausaland, as people enjoy it in all ways. You can have raw garri in a drink by mixing it with water, sugar and milk, chew on the garri grains or cook it. Igbo people know cooked garri as utara, while Yoruba people call it eba/teba. Even though it is a staple food for many people in Africa, consuming too much garri is not a very good thing. As cassava used for making garri contains hydrocyanic acid (in other words, cyanide), one should not consume it if it is not properly processed. In such cases, the effect of drinking garri will be mostly negative, as it might cause intestinal issues, worsening of ulcers and serious eye defects.This leads to the question… Is drinking garri good for a pregnant woman? READ ALSO: Is ginger and garlic good for a pregnant woman?Many expectant mothers enjoy drinking garri first thing in the morning or in the evenings, as its sour taste prevents them from vomiting. But should they actually be drinking it?According to Mr. Razak Adeofalade, the chairperson of the Health Workers’ Union of the Lagos State Council, drinking raw soaked garri is not a very good idea, especially during pregnancy. In addition to what we have said before about consuming improperly processed garri, it might also lead to Lassa fever. Back in 2016, many Nigerians, including several pregnant women, suffered severely from the outbreak of this fever, and some even died from it. The Lassa fever was transmitted by rats who came into contact with cassava. Thus, drinking raw soaked garri led to contracting the fever and several fatalities.If you want to avoid such fate, it is best to stay away from drinking garri during pregnancy. If you still want to have garri in your diet, make sure it is thoroughly processed. You can still eat it in the form of utara/eba, as long as you cook it properly.As pregnancy is already a very stressful time for anyone involved, you should avoid adding more stress for yourself by worrying whether it is safe to consume something or not. If you are hesitant about anything, the best way to ease your worries is to ask a doctor about it. READ ALSO: Benefits of unripe plantain in pregnancySource: Naija.ng

NYSC certificate scandal: Bakare speaks on begging Buhari for Adeosun - Daily Post Nigeria
The Founder and Senior Pastor, Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare has given further details into his encounter with the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, at the Presidential Villa recently.  The vice presidential candidate of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in the 2011 presidential election, said meeting Adeosun in the Villa was totally unplanned, adding that he did not discuss with the London-trained economist the controversy trailing her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate.  He told Daily Sun that, “I think that has already been resolved. My solicitor already wrote the online social media and they have corrected themselves. We arrived at the Villa at different times, I didn’t know she was coming, she didn’t know I was coming and I went to see the president alone behind a closed door, in a meeting and she went to see someone else in the Villa and when I finished, I didn’t even see her again. How they quickly added one and two together, that was such cheap and sensational journalism.  “Assumption is the lowest level of knowledge. Assumption! They should not have assumed. They could simply ask questions. They have access to me; they could simply have asked questions ‘oh, we saw this, what is happening?’ The press must endeavour to give accurate information to the public.  “That should not be a lobby discussion. It would not be appropriate. If someone is going through trouble, my job is not to shoot the wounded. If I cannot find solution to the person’s problems, I don’t add more to their problems. It would be inappropriate to start asking her questions in the lobby where everybody was present.”

Confusion at NASS as whereabouts of Saraki, Ekweremadu unknown - Daily Post Nigeria
It is an unsafe time for the country’s lawmakers as early this morning heavily armed security operatives besieged the residences of both the Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.  It is even said that the whereabouts of Saraki is largely unknown.  It could be recalled that midnight yesterday, the police high command invited Saraki to appear before it for questioning over alleged murder allegation that happened in Kwara, his home state.  Also, with the residences of the two key principal officers of the Senate under siege, the hallowed chamber is unlikely to hold plenary today.  Political pundits attribute the whole development as a political scheming by the presidency to forestall the grand plan by the lawmakers who are members of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, from defecting en masse to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, today.  Meanwhile, there is uneasy calm in the National Assembly as many of the lawmakers are seen in groups meeting to find a way out of the looming political impasse.

MKO Abiola: Buhari's June 12 declaration exposes his deceitful antics - Junaid Mohammed - Daily Post
Junaid Mohammed, a Second Republic lawmaker, on Thursday lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari for declaring June 12 as the new Democracy Day and posthumously awarding Chief M.K.O. Abiola, Grand Commander of the Federal Republic (GCFR). Mohammed maintained that Buhari’s recognition of Abiola at a time elections were close was “deceitful”. Speaking with DAILY POST, the former lawmaker stressed that Buhari’s “sinister antics” was aimed at amassing votes from the South West in 2019. The fierce critic of the current administration said Buhari should be, “ashamed of himself” for waiting till 2018 before correcting a past “injustice.” According to Mohammed, “This is deceitful politics, Buhari is doing that in anticipation of the forth coming election in 2019 but those who know him like I do will tell you that he has never respected or admired Abiola. So doing this now shows that he is so desperate and is prepared to do anything deceitful and dishonourable to motivate votes. “Buhari has no other arithmetic because the bulk of the votes Abiola got did not come from the South West, they came from the North and the East, so he thinks this action is the master’s stroke that will win him the election but he is mistaken. “Nigerians are smart enough to see through this deceitful antics, Buhari was one of those against Abiola. To confirm this deceit, he took a traitor of Abiola, Babangana Kingibe to honour him too. “I don’t understand why anybody who was familiar with that election will honour Abiola and Kingibe, who is a traitor never known to be loyal to anybody than himself. “As we speak, Kingibe is an employee of the Presidency and he is part of the cabal, so this is sinister because 2019 is around the corner. “Buhari has been in power since 2015, he didn’t remember to rectify an injustice but only now that elections are coming that he remembered to do so, he should be ashamed of himself.” Recall that Buhari, in a statement issued yesterday, had declared Abiola as the winner of the annulled June 12 election and replacing May 29 with June 12 as new Democracy Day.  DON'T MISS: Download DailyPost Android app and earn unlimited free Airtime Buhari had argued that June 12, 1993, the date of the election considered to be the fairest in Nigeria’s history, “was far more symbolic of democracy in the Nigerian context than May 29 or even October 1.”

Following the reported siege to the homes of the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, and his Deputy, Chief Ike Ekweremadu, former Kaduna state governor, Alhaji Balarebe Musa, has called on well-meaning Nigerians to prevail on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to ensure a cordial working relationship with members of the National Assembly for the betterment of the country.  The former governor of old Kaduna state lamented that since the inception of the Buhari government, there have been series of frictions between the executive and the National Assembly, thereby threatening the cooperate existence of Nigeria and national development.  Speaking to DAILY POST in Kaduna on Tuesday, the elder statesman said, “It is very unfortunate that in a country like Nigeria, the executive and the National Assembly are fighting on issues that ordinarily should be resolved to give way for the cooperate existence of the country.  “The executive has been trying to humiliate the National Assembly on issues that should be resolved in a round-table without affecting the common man in the country.  “Those who are able to prevail on the affairs of the country should lend their voices of reasoning to bring the two parties to a round-table for possible solutions and ensure that the common man enjoys the dividends of democracy.  “The continued rivalry between the executive and the National Assembly is not a good omen for the country but efforts should be made to ensure the country gets out of this mess.”  He called on members of both the executive and the National Assembly to place the welfare of the command man above their personal interests that are not doing any good to the peace, unity and development of the country.

How Buhari will win 2019 election - IPOB - Daily Post Nigeria
The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has said that going by what happened in Ekiti State last Saturday, the opposition party would lose the 2019 general elections.  The pro-Biafra group said that the governorship poll was characterized by “charade.”  According to IPOB, the coalition of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and all other opposition parties cannot defeat President Muhammadu Buhari because he would be aided by the military, police and all paramilitary agencies as allegedly witnessed in Ekiti State.  The Biafran group, therefore suggested a total boycott of the forthcoming general elections by the South-South, South-East, South-West and the Middle Belt geo-political regions.  IPOB’s position was contained in a statement signed by the Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Comrade Emma Powerful and made available to reporters in Enugu yesterday.  The statement was entitled, “Ekiti State election; another vindication of IPOB no election stance.”  It reads, “Those unfortunate enough to have witnessed the disgraceful charade that passed as Ekiti State governorship election over the weekend, would no doubt, by now, have come to the full realisation that only a total and complete boycott of elections in Nigeria has the remotest chance of setting the poor masses free.  “For anybody to describe the electoral dance of shame at Ekiti as “free and fair elections” means that Nigeria is yet to develop an appreciable sense of understanding of what democratic elections is meant to be.  “This singular event at Ekiti has proven IPOB right yet again, that voting in Nigeria within the present political arrangement is utterly useless and counter productive.  “Under the current electoral conditions in Nigeria, a PVC has transmuted from a supposedly potent object of freedom to one of bondage. IPOB worldwide therefore wish to restate categorically and for purposes of clarity that it would boycott all elections in Nigeria come 2019.  “Presidential elections next year will afford IPOB an opportunity to demonstrate our cast iron determination to set Biafra free by totally shutting down South East and South South.  “By going out to vote, instead of demanding their freedom, the masses are only helping tyrants to legalize rigging and electoral fraud. What people are doing by voting is willingly and legally renewing their pain and suffering every 4 years.  “All the institutions which should act as electoral watch-dogs and umpires (including all the security forces) are under the control of the tyrants.  “South East, South-South and Middle-Belt would be foolhardy to agree to participate in the 2019 elections under such conditions”.

I warned Buhari against taking over from Jonathan in 2015 - Sheikh Gumi - Daily Post Nigeria
A fiery Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmed Gumi has revealed how he warned President Muhammadu Buhari against taking over governance from the immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan.  Gumi said he told Buhari that he was coming to make things worse for Nigerians due to the situation on ground when he won the election.  The cleric said his criticism of the President was done in the interest of Nigerians.  Speaking with Punch, Gumi noted that things were worse now under the Buhari administration than it was during the past government.  According to him, “Our criticism of Buhari is not about being a northerner or a Muslim . It has to do with what is in the best interest of Nigerians. A leader is like a blind man. People on the ground or on the field could see what he cannot see.  “Preachers of religions who are apolitical are the ones that are the eyes , telling the leadership what to do or where things are going wrong.  “We are like the press too, we are supposed to be neutral in our presentation of facts. Once things are not going on as they should be, it is our duty to come out to explain to the people and the government what is wrong and also proffer solutions.  “Even before Buhari came, I was one of the few people that advised him that the Nigerian situation at the end of Jonathan’s regime was not the best for him. He was going to make things worse, not better.  “If you are bringing in a patient who has broken all his limbs to the hospital , the doctor will be concerned about whether his blood is circulating and not about his broken bones.  “The doctor will not be looking at the protruding bones but those standing by will be looking and wondering why the doctor is not concerned about the bones.  “The doctor is concerned about how to save the life of the patient. That is how Nigeria is. When you are concerned and obsessed with what can be fixed later, you are rather killing Nigeria. That is what I see in the government.”

The Federal Government says it will commence disbursement of the recovered 322 million dollars Abacha loot through Conditional Cash Transfers (CCT) to 302,000 poor households in 19 states in July.  Tukur Rumar, of the National Cash Transfer Office (NTCO), disclosed this at a roundtable on assets recovery organised by the Swiss Embassy on Thursday, in Abuja.  The states include: Niger, Kogi, Ekiti, Osun, Oyo, Kwara, Cross River, Bauchi, Gombe, Jigawa, Benue, Taraba, Adamawa, Kano, Katsina, Kaduna, Plateau, Nasarrawa, Anambra and Internally Displaced Persons Camps (IDPs) in Borno.  According to Rumar, the benefiting households will receive N5,000 monthly.  Mr Iorwa Apera, the National Coordinator, National Social Safety Net Coordinating Office (NASSCO), said 503,055 households were already on the NSR register from the 19 states, adding that by July, there would be a social register for all the states of the federation.  “The Federal Government would begin with those states, because they had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with NASSCO to put in place certain infrastructure to empower the national register.  “Some of the states delayed, but the other ones were quick enough to set up infrastructure that allowed us to start work there, but all the states are now on board as they have set up their state operating offices and donated office equipment to us.  “As states come on board, we enroll and so they extend to the beneficiary register, and presently we are generating data in all the states now,’’ he said.

Herdsmen killings: Christians to shut down Nigeria July 11 - Daily Post Nigeria
The leadership of the Christian Association pf Nigeria (CAN) on Thursday declared July 9-11, 2018 as National Days of Prayers and Fasting over herdsmen killings.  It also called on all well-meaning Nigerians, both within and outside the country, to join Christians on 11 July, 2018 for a peaceful nationwide protest.  Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, spokesman to CAN President, Rev Dr Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, in a statement explained that CAN’s decision was hinged on willful and persistent killings of fellow citizens in general and Christians in particular, mostly in Plateau and Benue where mass burial had become the norm without any positive response from the country’s security agencies.  It read: “CAN is worried, disturbed and disappointed that despite all the clarion calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to re-organise his security team by replacing all the security chiefs, he has consistently turned a deaf ear to such calls. From all indications, the President seems to be satisfied with their poor performance and the attendant problems that have led to avoidable loss of lives and property.  “We call on all Christians in the country and in the Diaspora to participate in the three-day prayers and fasting programme for God to end all the senseless, unwarranted, and selected killings in the country. If the government has failed us, we are very sure that Our God will never fail.  “All National Executive Committee’s members of CAN, the Church and Denominational leaders have been invited to participate in a PEACEFUL PROTEST MARCH to both the National Assembly and the State House to impress on the government to see the need to effectively stop the unprecedented killings.  “CAN has also directed its leadership at the state and local government levels to organise the same Peaceful Protest March to the Government House and the Local government headquarters respectively on 11 July. We are to tell the government; ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. We appeal to our members to be law-abiding before, during and after the protest.”
