Ejibunnu however said the DPV of the seized goods within the period under review is N517m while N86m was recovered as revenue into the federation account through the issuance of demand notices for underpaid Customs duties.

The Customs zone A boss stated that the consignments are still under detention pending when the importer provides the necessary documents.

“This is calcium carbade about 450 drums weighing 106kg each with street value of N24m. The status of of this is still under detention because the owner said he has an end-user certificate for it so we are waiting for the presentation of the EUC. It was intercepted at Ijebu-Ode on its way to Aba.”

The FOU A custom boss said the failure of the importer to produce the EUC within the time frame, the service won’t have any other choice than to do what the law says. “And we have to prosecute the person.”

He however added that they arrested a suspect in connection with the explosives.

According to him, “It is important we note that this is part of the bye products for making bombs and with our eagle-eyed officers it is important to note that we have to be going after these things especially those that are under restrictions that some people will use the opportunity to bring them in.”

“We have a time frame within 30 days we have a suspect with us, let him get us the necessary documents. As soon as he gets the documents then no problem.”

Ejibunnu, however, said within the period under review, the unit seized 68 pieces of military camouflage.

“Eleven suspects were arrested in connection with some of the wares. While the Federal High Court had convicted three people for the crime of smuggling.”

Ejibunnu said the unit intercepted 2,135 wraps, of Indian Hemp weighing 1,163kg.

“Within the period under review, the command also seized 5,481 bags of foreign parboiled rice of 50kg each which is equivalent to over nine trailer loads, 47,750 litres of premium motor spirit, 68 pieces of military camouflage, 314 pieces of used tyres, 11 units of used motorcycles, 13 units of used vehicles”

He said the goods were intercepted along the border corridors of the South-West.

Ejibunnu however handed over the seized cannabis sativa to an official of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.

Speaking after receiving the contrabands, an Assistant Commandant, Narcotics, Moshood Aluko, said the agency would do its best to cover up the black spots that aids these consignments in coming into the country.

“From what the Controller said there is a black spot everywhere we have to start, track and educate them. The volume is too much and we don’t expect much to be in circulation. We are grateful to Customs if not if this size of cannabis is found in the system it is not good, it can lead to mental disorders. You know in fighting drug abuse and menace a lot of stakeholders are involved,” he said.

Following the scarcity of the new naira notes, some beggars in Jigawa State have cried out over the decline in almsgiving.

Some of the beggars expressed their concern while speaking with Daily Post in Dutse, the State capital.

Malam Sani, one of the beggars along Kiyawa road in Dutse, said before the new naira policy, he used to get enough money for his needs and that of his family.

Before the issue of this new naira note, the money I was getting was enough for my transport fare and my family’s needs.

“But right now, it is even difficult to get the money that would transport me back to the village,”
he said.

Malama Halima, one of the women begging along Kiyawa road in Dutse, lamented that she was now finding it difficult to feed herself and her two children.

“Since the morning that we came out, I only got N70 and I have to take care of myself and these children,”
she said.

They appealed to the Federal Government to look into the situation and ease the suffering of the masses.

Also only few beggars were available at their begging spots.

This was disclosed in a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday by the Director of Media and Publicity for APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga

 
The presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu has commended governors from his party for securing a temporary order stopping the Central Bank of Nigeria's February 10 deadline for swapping of old notes.
 
Tinubu spoke in a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday by the Director of Media and Publicity for APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanug
 
The development is coming hours after the Supreme Court temporarily halted the move by the Federal Government to ban the use of the old naira notes from February 10, 2023.
 
A seven-member panel led by Justice John Okoro had granted an interim injunction against the CBN and Federal Government, allowing the old N200, N500 and N1000 to remain legal tender beyond February 10 deadline until the case is fully disposed.
 
An excited Tinubu disclosed that the governors, especially the ones governing the APC states who instituted the suit against the FG and CBN at the Supreme Court, acted well on behalf of the hapless Nigerian masses who have been made to bear the brunt of Naira redesign policy.
 
According to the APC candidate, the apex court ruling coincided with the advisory of the International Monetary Fund urging for the extension of the deadline for the swap of the old naira notes.
 
He said, “I want to salute the courage of our governors, especially the Progressives Governors in APC, who acted to save our country from avoidable and dangerous political crises and social unrest, which the Central Bank policy on new Naira notes has brought on our country.

“Our country was dangerously careering toward anarchy and political and economic shutdown. But with the Supreme Court interim ruling our country has been pulled back from the precipice. We thank our Supreme Court Justices for ruling wisely on the side of the people who have been subjected to undue agony and pain since this policy was announced

“The Federal Government and relevant stakeholders can now sit down and work out better framework on how to proceed with the new policy without causing any social and economic disruption and inconvenience to our people. We have examples of other countries that have successfully and seamlessly changed their currencies to learn from.

“Those countries give a long time, at least 12 months to effect the currency change. They do not engage in a CBN-like Fire Brigade approach. We have seen how a good policy can be poorly implemented to cause unintended problems for the people who should be the beneficiaries. While lessons have been learnt, we must now move on as a country and people with a Renewed Hope for a better tomorrow.

“The sole aim of my running to be the president of our country is to make life better and more abundant for our people and this is an ideal for which I will remain eternally committed to.”
 
The APC presidential candidate further called on the CBN to ensure that the Supreme Court ruling is effectively executed by taking all necessary steps to ensure sufficient availability of the Naira (whether old or new) and properly sensitising the public on the ruling including the consequent validity of old notes.

POS operators in the state are collecting between N1000, N1500 and N2000 charges for every N5000 and N10,000 withdrawn by customers and N300 charges for every N1000.

 
 
The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has threatened to withdraw licenses of Point of Sale (PoS) agents found inflating charges on customers.
 
CBN issued the threat on Tuesday.
 
According to Daily Trust, POS operators in different states have been collecting between N1000, N1500 and N2000 charges for every N5000 and N10,000 withdrawn by customers and N300 charges for every N1000.
 
Director, CBN Risk Management department, Blaise Ijebor, disclosed this yesterday while speaking with journalists on efforts of the apex bank and state government on ensuring the availability of cash in circulation.
 
According to him, the approved charge for every N5,000 is N100 and anything done contrary to the approved charges by the agents due to the current cash crisis is tantamount to punishing their fellow citizens.
 
According to him, they are aware that POS agents are engaging in all sorts of sharp practices by charging customers up to 30 percent before giving them money.
 
“We are monitoring the situation and anyone caught would have his or her license withdrawn and would not be in the business because we are going around with the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

“Customer should not be agitated, there is no need for any tension because your money is safe in the bank for now just get the little cash you need while using alternative means available to make payment”
 
While assuring that the CBN is working with the state government to improve the situation, he said they have disbursed closed N1 billion to banks between Sunday and Tuesday so that the people can make a withdrawal
 
Ijebor: “We gave banks about N400m on Sunday, N200m on Monday, and on Tuesday(Today), we have given N460m. So, we are pushing out money.”

ocean

More than three tonnes of cocaine found floating in the Pacific Ocean, has been seized by the authorities in New Zealand

Police commissioner Andrew Coster said the 3.2 tonnes found were worth an estimated $323 million.

The cocaine had been dropped at a transit point in international waters, six days sailing northeast of New Zealand.

Mr Coster said the haul was equivalent to 30 years of supply in New Zealand and a year’s worth of supply in Australia.

“There is no doubt this discovery lands a major financial blow right from the South American producers through to the distributors of this product,” the commissioner said.

The size of the shipment suggested the drugs were likely destined for Australia, Mr Coster said, noting that “we know the distribution of any illicit drug causes a great amount of social harm as well as negative health and financial implications for communities, especially drug users and their families.”

The commissioner said no arrests had been made, as the police were working with international partners to further their enquiries.

According to Galadima, Atiku spent billions of naira to persuade the religious leaders to go and talk to Kwankwaso to step down for him.

 
A chieftain of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Buba Galadima has given details of how presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar tried to make the presidential candidate of NNPP, Rabiu Kwankwaso step down for him.
 
According to Galadima, Atiku sent an ex-head of state to beg Kwankwaso.
 
He spoke in an interview with Trust TV, adding that Kwankwaso will defeat Atiku in his polling unit.
 
He further stated that the former vice president also sent religious leaders to plead with Kwankwaso to support him in the presidential election.
 
According to Galadima, Atiku spent billions of naira to persuade the religious leaders to go and talk to Kwankwaso to step down for him.
 
He said, “We will defeat Atiku in Jada Local Government of Adamawa State. Atiku is not in this race. Yes on paper he is but he is not a candidate. How would win and through what?

“Atiku is using religious leaders to appeal to Kwankwaso to step down for him, Atiku used former heads of state and prominent people to appeal to Kwankwaso, Atiku used traditional rulers, spent billions of naira to persuade them to go and talk to Kwankwaso to step down for him.

“He used northern groups to try to manipulate and say that they interviewed the presidential candidates and found Atiku to be the best. They know we know, they could not achieve their vision.

“We are more northerners than them. Kwankwaso is from Kano and I am from Gashua. My village to the extreme part of the north is about 50 kilometres so I am northerner than them and I am older.

“Recently he (Atiku) sent some three prominent Islamic scholars to Kwankwaso’s house to kneel for him and pleaded to step down, we sent them away. Yes, who are they? We respect that regalia but if they remove it, we will ask small boys to deal with them.”

Popular Nigerian actor, Williams Uchemba has taken to Instagram to share lovely photos of his family as his daughter, Kamara turns one.

According to the father of one, he got specific instructions from God on how to raise her; one of them was that he should not reveal her face till she turned one.

Sharing the photos, he captioned it:

''At age 17 years it was laid in my spirit that my first child will be a girl and I would name her Chikammara which means (God knows more than me). I didn’t understand why until I was lead to read Jeremiah 29:11 which says “ For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future “

Certain instructions were given on how to raise her and one of it was I SHOULD NOT REVEAL HER FACE UNTIL SHE TURNS 1 (reasons I still don’t know until now) and, in much as I really wanted to share her picture , I had to obey.

Today 8th of February my first fruit turns one and I am happy to share all the wonderful moments we’ve shared with her in these past year.

Happy birthday Ka mama @kamarauchemba

Daddy loves you.''

Abubakar Sani Bello, the Governor of Niger State has issued threats to filling stations.

The governor decried the difficulties being experienced by the people of the state occasioned by the artificial scarcity and arbitrary pricing of PMS by marketers of the product, stressing that the situation warranted that government takes a drastic position.

“The constitution of the committee by the Government followed the persistent fuel scarcity being witnessed in the state as a result of the arbitrary pricing and hoarding of the product,” the statement said.

It further stated that the committee is to ensure strict compliance with the approved allocation to filling stations in the state and retail prices for PMS.

Matane added that members of the committee were drawn from the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), security agencies and government officials.

The boys aged between seven and 14 were all students of a madrassa and had been taken for a day trip to the scenic Tanda Dam lake on Sunda

 

In what will come across as a really shocking development, as many as forty-nine children have perished died in Pakistan.

The children died when their overloaded boat capsized in northwest Pakistan, police said Tuesday after divers spent three days dragging bodies from freezing waters.

According to the Agence France Prese, AFP, the boys aged between seven and 14 were all students of a madrassa and had been taken for a day trip to the scenic Tanda Dam lake on Sunday.

“The water of the dam was freezing due to cold weather that impeded the rescue mission. But today the divers were able to dive deep to recover the remaining bodies,” said Khateer Ahmad, a senior official with Rescue 1122.

The bodies of a teacher and one skipper were also pulled from the water, he added, bringing the death toll to 51.

Muhammad Umar, who sells tea at a picnic site overlooking the popular weekend tourist destination, said dozens of parents and relatives had gathered over the past few days.

“Every time a body was recovered from the scene, they would jump onto the diver to see if it was their son and every time we would hear them screaming in pain and anguish,” he told AFP over the phone on Tuesday.

“I have not witnessed such scenes in my life, it’s something that can’t be explained in words.”

Tanda Dam lake is about five kilometres (3 miles) away from the madrassa — an Islamic school that offers free religious education — in Kohat in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

Police spokesperson Fazal Naeem issued the new death toll on Tuesday after the end of the rescue mission. It was confirmed by the military’s media wing.

“The boat was overloaded; its capacity was around 20 to 25 persons,” Naeem told AFP.

He added that five people were rescued including four students and one teacher.

Pakistan’s army shared images showing divers traversing the lake in rubber dinghies, entering the green waters to pull out the bodies of children.

“I got stuck under the boat,” 11-year-old survivor Muhammad Mustafa told AFP from his hospital bed on Sunday.

“My shawl and sweater weighed me down, so I took them off.”

“The water was extremely cold and my body went numb. I thought I was going to pass out when a man on an inflatable tube saved me.”

Senator Tofowomo had appealed the judgment of the Court of Appeal, Akure Judicial Division delivered on November 30, 2022, by Justice A. O. Lokulo-Sodipe.

An appeal filed by the Senator representing Ondo South Senatorial District, Nicholas Tofowomo against the former Deputy Governor and the Peoples Democratic Party candidate for Ondo South Senatorial District in the 2023 general elections, Chief Alfred Agboola Ajayi, has been dismissed by the Supreme Court on Friday.

Senator Tofowomo had appealed the judgment of the Court of Appeal, Akure Judicial Division delivered on November 30, 2022, by Justice A. O. Lokulo-Sodipe.

The lower court delivered its judgment on November 30, 2022, where it dismissed the Appellant’s case on the ground that the same is statute-barred.

The summary of the matter is that Agboola Ajayi and Tofowomo are members of the same political party, PDP. The duo along with three others contested the primary election of the party for Ondo South Senatorial District on May 23, 2022. Ajayi was declared the winner having received the majority of the lawful votes of 78 as against Tofowomo's 74 votes.

On June 13, 2022, Tofowomo through his counsel, Femi Emmanuel Emodamori Esq, wrote to the National Chairman of the party on the need to disqualify Ajayi based on the allegations that he made false declarations in his forms submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

On July 5, 2022, over 20 days after the alleged occurrence of the act complained of and more than a week after the expiration of the constitutional allowance of 14 days, Tofowomo filed a suit at the Federal High Court, Akure, to challenge Ajayi's emergence as the PDP candidate for Ondo South Senatorial District.

The trial court and the lower court after a thorough examination and consideration of the 1st Respondent’s written address and brief of argument of the parties in respect of the Appeal at the lower court dismissed the Appellant’s case.

It relied on Section 285(9) of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) and the cases of KARSHI V GWAGWA (2022) and other relevant authorities.

The Court of Appeal held that by Exhibit FEE2 attached to the Appellant’s affidavit at the trial court, the Plaintiff/Appellant’s time began to run from June 9, 2022 or June 13, 2022 based on Exhibits AA4 and PDP3 when the acts complained of by the Appellant against the 1st Respondent occurred or took place.

As such the case of the appellant is statute-barred having filed the case on the 5th of July, 2022, that is 27 or 23 days after the alleged occurrence of the act complained of and 13 or 10 days after the expiration of the constitutional allowance of 14 days. The Court of Appeal affirmed the Judgment of the trial court dismissing the Appellant’s case for being statute barred.

Dissatisfied with the decision of the Court of Appeal dismissing his appeal against Ajayi, Tofowomo further appealed to the Supreme Court in a suit numbered SC/CV/1526/2022.

However, in a unanimous judgement delivered by Honourable Justice Emmanuel Akomaye Agim on Friday, the Supreme Court dismissed the appeal on the basis that the case is statute-barred. It noted the cause of action accrued on the date the form was submitted to the 3rd Respondent (INEC) and fined Senator Tofowomo N500,000.

Reacting, MURIC chairman, Muhammad Aliyu, in a statement on Friday, said the January 31 deadline set by the Federal Government had almost grounded businesses in Sokoto, Kebbi, and Zamfara states because of people’s refusal to accept the old naira notes in commercial transactions out of fear of possible inability to deposit the notes in commercial banks.

The statement continued, “Many filling stations and other essential services providers also closed, because most of their customers come with old naira notes and they are not sure whether they could be able to deposit same to the bank.

“This has currently made life more difficult for ordinary citizens. Many Nigerians have lamented the nonavailability and scarcity of new notes, this is because banks, up till today, still give out the old naira notes to customers with the deadline only a few days away.

“Sequel to the foregoing, we appeal to the Federal Government to reconsider its decision by extending the 31st January 2023 deadline for the expiration of old naira notes by at least two weeks to enable Nigerians to swap their old naira with the new naira notes.

“We also call on the security agencies particularly the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit to closely monitor how commercial bank managers handle the new naira notes they receive from Central Bank of Nigeria, which the apex bank has been consistently insisting are readily available at the vaults nationwide and ready for collection. We call on Nigerians to remain peaceful and stop panicking about the money swap.”

It was learnt that the banks stopped paying customers because of the unavailability of the newly ‘redesigned’ Naira notes.

Some commercial banks in Awka, Anambra State have stopped paying customers over the counter or via Automated Teller Machines (ATM), preventing members of the public from making transactions, with just four days to the deadline for the old version of N200, N500 and N1,000 Naira notes to cease from being legal tender in Nigeria.

SaharaReporters reports that the banks stopped paying customers because of the unavailability of the newly ‘redesigned’ Naira notes.

Following the ‘redesigning’ of the Naira notes, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in 2022 gave January 31, 2023, as the deadline for the exchange of old notes for the newly redesigned notes.



Insisting that the deadline which is now just four days away stands, the apex bank had directed commercial banks across the country to work even on Saturdays to enable Nigerians to deposit all the old notes in their possession. The CBN further directed commercial banks to work for 24 hours on January 31.

However, SaharaReporters had reported how Nigerians across the country lamented the scarcity of the new Naira notes as banks kept issuing old notes both on the counter and at ATM galleries.
On Friday morning, SaharaReporters visited some commercial banks in Awka, the Anambra State capital to ascertain the state of banks’ cooperation with the CBN directive of issuance of new Naira notes.

However, whereas it was discovered that some banks were issuing the new Naira notes to their customers over the counter and through ATM machines, Access Bank and the United Bank for Africa (UBA) branches located along Enugu-Onitsha Expressway had stopped paying, even through ATMs, leaving their customers stranded.  

At Access Bank, a security officer of the bank who refused to give out his name told SaharaReporters that the bank had told the customers to wait for the newly redesigned notes to be loaded into the ATMs. But after waiting for more than one hour and 30 minutes, some customers became angry.

The security officer, however, refused to explain the reason for the delay to the customers who lamented spending over an hour before SaharaReporters arrived at the bank.

Also, at the UBA ATM gallery in the Amaku area along Enugu-Onitsha Expressway, customers were stranded as the bank’s five ATMs had no cash. When SaharaReporters asked one of the bank’s security officers why the ATM machines were not dispensing money, he said, “They are not paying because there is no money.”

Meanwhile, in front of the UBA ATM Gallery, SaharaReporters sighted a female POS operator carrying out her business and attending to some frustrated customers for whom she charged N500 for N5,000 withdrawal and N100 for N1,000 withdrawal.

He noted that bad leadership in the country is currently breeding poverty, hunger and insecurity.

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, has talked about the ills in the country.

He noted that bad leadership in the country is currently breeding poverty, hunger and insecurity.

He stated this at his presidential campaign rally on Thursday in Bauchi, saying the country only enjoyed justice, peace and fairness through the efforts of former Prime Ministers, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa and Nnamdi Azikiwe during their leadership.



Claiming that Nigeria would be different under his leadership, Obi lamented the country’s huge debt burden.

He said, ”whenever I am in Bauchi, it reminds me that there was once a united and peaceful Nigeria, that Nigeria was on the path of greatness from a revered leader from Bauchi and that is Tafawa Balewa.

“Nigeria is breeding poverty, people are poor in Nigeria, people are hungry, people are insecure. All the money that we have borrowed, if we had used it the way Tafawa Balewa used the money he borrowed, Nigeria would have been heaven today.”

The presidential candidate recalled that on June 19, 1974, Tafawa Balewa applied to the World Bank to give him $82 million to build the Kainji Dam to generate power and today, Kainji Dam is still there, it was supposed to generate 750 megawatts, pointing out that the equivalent of that money is supposed to be about $1.250 billion but Nigeria is owing N77 trillion.

If you divide it by the value of what Tafawa Balewa borrowed then, Nigerians would have had 150 Kainji Dams and Nigeria would have been exporting power to other countries today.

The Presidential candidate said he believes that a new Nigeria is possible, where people have jobs, and economic growth, are peaceful and secure.

He advised Nigerian to vote for credible candidates in the forthcoming general elections and not to vote based on ethnicity or religion, as people from all the zones of the country were currently living in hunger.

The July 16 Osun governorship election result was nullified by the Election Petitions Tribunal on Friday

 
Governor Ademola Adeleke has urged residents of Osun State to remain calm after he was sacked as the governor of the state.
 
According to him, the decision of the governorship election petitions tribunal is “a miscarriage of justice”.
 
He also vowed to appeal the decision.
 
The July 16 Osun governorship election result was nullified by the Election Petitions Tribunal on Friday after hearing Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress’ case challenging Ademola Adeleke’s victory.
 
The Independent National Electoral Commission did not substantially comply with the terms of the Electoral Act, according to Justice Tetsea Kume’s majority ruling.
 
Reacting to the verdict of the tribunal from his country home in Ede, Adeleke faulted the resolution of the over-voting question in favour of Mr Adegboyega Oyetola, calling it “an unfair interpretation against the will of majority of voters”
 
While urging his supporters to remain calm, Adeleke vowed to appeal the judgement at the Court of Appeal, insisting he remained the rightful winner of the July 16 election.
 
“I call on our people to remain calm. We will appeal the judgement and we are sure justice will be done. Let our people be reassured that we will do everything possible to retain this widely acclaimed mandate,” the governor said in a statement signed by his spokesman, Olawale Rasheed, on Friday.

They were, however, chanting PDP slogans and voicing their support for the PDP Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar and the Adamawa State governorship candidate, Ahmadu Fintiri.

PDP

Thousands of people in Adamawa State have defected from the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Some of the former NNPP members who matched through some streets of the state capital, Yola, on Friday were seen wearing Kwakwassiya caps, made popular by the NNPP national leader, Rabiu Kwankwaso.

They were, however, chanting PDP slogans and voicing their support for the PDP Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar and the Adamawa State governorship candidate, Ahmadu Fintiri.

The leader of the crowd, a former Northeast zonal secretary of NNPP, Dr Babayo Liman said they were defecting from the NNPP because the party was in crisis in many states and the national leader who also seeks to be president had proved unable to resolve them.

Babayo who is from Bauchi State, had announced his defection earlier in the week, saying he was invited by his supporters in Adamawa to lead them into the PDP.

“I have been receiving invitations from various states and when I got here (Adamawa), they told me they wished to follow my footsteps,” he said, stating that no less than 400,000 people were leaving the NNPP to PDP in Adamawa State.

He introduced those who followed him to the press briefing which took place at the NUJ Press Centre in Yola, as former officials of the NNPP across the 21 LGAs of Adamawa State.

In the course of the press briefing, the former NNPP members removed their Kwankwsssiya caps to symbolise their exit from the NNPP.

Kelvin was severely beaten and wounded when he insisted that he would not grant Marchavilia’s request to sing at an event to campaign for APC presidential candidate.

 

According to a report by SaharaReporters, some hoodlums who are loyal to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have allegedly brutalized and wounded a musician, Ukworu Ogonna Kelvin.

He was allegedly brutalized for refusing to sing a campaign song for their party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.

SaharaReporters learnt Kelvin was assaulted at the lodge of the Chairman of Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, Southeast Nigeria.

SaharaReporters gathered that Kelvin was on assignment to perform at a funeral in the community when he was approached by APC loyalists led by Mr Marchavilia Uzo of Enuakwa.

Kelvin was severely beaten and wounded when he insisted that he would not grant Marchavilia’s request to sing at an event to campaign for APC presidential candidate.

A source privy to the matter told SaharaReporters that Kelvin has probably not lost one of his eyes to the assault.

The source said, “At the burial of his mother-in-law, while in the place, he was attacked. When he had almost finished his assignment there, he was already packing.

“The coordinator serving the development centre in that area came in and then asked him to do a song, a political song for his party's presidential candidate. The musician said no that he did not come for a political party event, and that he came for a burial and the person that called him for a burial had already gone.

“He was no longer on the premises. They had closed and he was already packing. And then he insisted that he must compose a song but he said no. So it got to a level where he asked them if they had the song they wanted to play so he used his microphone and speakers to project the sound.

“At some point, he said no that he was leaving as the person who invited him had left. The guys that the coordinator came with now approached his vehicle and started beating him up.

Adeyanju said only the victory of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar in the February election can save Adeleke.

 Deji Adeyanju

Deji Adeyanju, a socio-political activist, has identified the only thing that could restore Ademola Adeleke as the governor of Osun State.

Adeyanju said only the victory of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar in the February election can save Adeleke.

In a series of tweets, Adeyanju said Adeleke’s victory is about to be stolen at gunpoint by the judiciary.

According to Adeyanju: “An election Adeleke won before our very eyes despite all the vote buying unleashed by APC in Osun is about to be stolen at gunpoint by the judiciary. I just wonder for Made in Court Room Democracies.

“Tinubu and his people are so determined to take Osun through the Tribunal. Whether through bending the law or any other means, they will take it. Only God or a PDP victory in February can save Adeleke at this point.

“The Osun Election Tribunal, in annulling Adeleke’s victory, says there was overvoting in some PUs. This decision if re-enforced by the apex court will rubbish BVAS and INEC result portals. The overvoting could have occurred from any side but let’s see what Appeal Court & SC will say.”

Lawyer Sues CBN, Seeks Extension Of Deadline For Old Banknotes

The lawyer said the decision, though a welcome idea, is causing anxiety among Nigerians, especially the less privileged, as they have yet to access the new naira notes.

 CBN

Joshua Alobo, a Nigerian lawyer, has dragged the Central Bank of Nigeria to court.

Alobo has approached the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court, praying the court to stop the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) from implementing the January 31 deadline to phase out the old naira notes (N200, N500 and N1,000).

Mr Alobo, in the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/114/2023, also prayed the court to make an order extending the duration when the old banknotes would cease to be legal tender for three weeks. Listed as first to third defendants in the suit are the CBN, the CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele, and the attorney general of the federation, Mr Abubakar Malami. 

He said this was to give time for when commercial banks would have enough new notes to dispense.

In an affidavit deposed by a citizen, Musa Damudi, the plaintiff told the court that the CBN governor had, on October 26, announced that the apex bank would introduce a new series of redesigned N200, N500 and N1,000 banknotes into the financial system.

The lawyer said the decision, though a welcome idea, is causing anxiety among Nigerians, especially the less privileged, as they have yet to access the new naira notes.

He said that although the new notes, unveiled on November 23 by President Muhammadu Buhari to curb inflation and entrench a cashless society to curb money laundering and corruption, their unavailability was causing apprehension among Nigerians.

Mr Alobo accused banks of failing to make the new notes available to their customers, adding that as of December 25, he was still given the old notes on the counter and through the automatic teller machine (ATM). 

The law professor argued that the January 31 deadline discriminates against rural dwellers, poor and less privileged persons.

“This is as politically exposed persons are paid with the redesigned notes. The cashless policy of the CBN is innovative and a welcome development but the rural dwellers that constitute the bulk of the population do not have access to internet and banking facilities,” Mr Alobo explained. “The current daily limit of transaction to N20,000 is against the central bank’s daily limit of N100,000.”

A date has been fixed to hear the case.

The tribunal had in a Friday morning judgement nullified Governor Adeleke’s victory at the July 16th, 2022 governorship election in the state.

 
Nigerians have reacted to a ruling of the Osun State election petitions tribunal sacking, Ademola Adeleke as governor of the state.
 
Recall that the tribunal had in a Friday morning judgement nullified Governor Adeleke’s victory at the July 16th, 2022 governorship election in the state.
 
The tribunal had hinged its judgement on evidence of overvoting presented by the APC and subsequently, declared former Governor, Gboyega Oyetola, the validly elected candidate.
 
Some of the reactions have faulted the tribunal’s judgement, alleging that the Nigerian judicial system is flawed and fraudulent
 
A Twitter user, endyy090 in his reaction said Nigeria needs no election, suggesting that tribunals be allowed to declare winners by choice
 
endyy090: “So after voting, this is what we get. At this point, I don’t think Nigeria needs an election again. The system is fraudulent.”
 
Henry said, “I simply do not understand, I thought BVAS was used? how come we had overvoting? This whole thing is difficult to understand, I hope all these will be cleared before the general election. Especially on BVAS. So the people got to the polling unit to check their name and did not see it on bvas, and the INEC official still allowed them to vote, counted it and sent it to the INEC server?”
 
Tony Ofuyah: “So with just one Governorship election, the INEC can’t protect and defend their BVAS. Yiaga Nigeria also misinformed Nigeria that the election was one of the best. So BVAS results are not final or authentic. How will Nigerians have confidence in d process?.”
 
Yusuf Dingyadi: “Was it not a compromised judgement because APC has already made plans before now? Another thing, Gov Adeleke will appeal the judgement to the Supreme court. This is Nigeria for all of us. You suffered to get people to mandate, but, yet Court will sit and do otherwise.”
 
Murphy: “Ademola Adeleke will remain Governor till Supreme Court judgement. Oyetola Gboyega can’t be Governor again.”
 
Idris: “Tinubu has paid the judge. He wants to use Oyetola to rig the election. Adeleke must go nowhere. Remain in the office, and let’s see the police that will arrest you.”
 
Nnamdi Ahukanna: “Why can’t we have principled members of any tribunal in this country after these years? Why are they always bought over by the party at the centre? The judiciary is Terrible.”
 
Taiwo Olawuyi: “I fear APC when it comes to judiciary issues about election petitions, they are good in the presentation of the cases, but PDP do not good in the presentation of the cases.”
 
Mr Kolz: “Why are they always looking for means of imposing this APC party on the masses? The masses said enough is enough, they don’t want APC anymore, but all you could do is to bring back their sorrow. This is so unfortunate.”

Owoeye in a statement by his media Aide, Kunle Alabi on Friday in Osogbo reiterated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is a party loved by the masses

The Speaker of the Osun House of Assembly, Timothy Owoeye has congratulated the former Governor of Osun, Adegboyega Oyetola on his victory at the Tribunal that declared him the winner of the July 16, 2022 election

Owoeye in a statement by his media Aide, Kunle Alabi on Friday in Osogbo reiterated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is a party loved by the masses.

Owoeye also added that the judgement is a testimony to the fact that the APC won the gubernatorial election in the state.

The Osun State Governorship Election Tribunal had declared the candidate of All Progressive Congress (APC), Adegboyega Isiaka Oyetola as the winner of the July 16, 2022 poll.

The judgment was delivered on Friday by the three-man panel, led by Justice Tertsea Kume.

Justice Tetsea Kume while delivering the majority decision, declared that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) did not comply substantially with the Constitution and the provisions of the Electoral Act.

“I am of the confidence that the truth will always prevail, having been convinced that our party did well for the people of our state that was what prompted me to say at every given opportunity that Oyetola is coming back.

“They thought they could manipulate the results of the election in their favour, but we thank God that the results of the Bimodal Voter’s Accreditation System (BVAS) exposed them even before the judgement of today.

“I want to use this occasion to charge our people to understand that the presidential election is very important to us and we want you to begin to mobilize our people to vote massively for our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima and all other national assembly candidates'”
