Iranian-Backed Houthis Launch Attacks on Saudi Ship, U.N. Facility

(New York, NY) – The Counter Extremism Project (CEP) today issued updated resources on the Iranian-backed Houthis, following attacks the group launched on January 30. A Saudi ship patrolling in the Red Sea was reportedly attacked by three Houthi “suicide gunboats,” killing two crew members and injuring three. 

On the same day, a building in southern Saudi Arabia near the Yemeni border used by U.N. staff to monitor ceasefire operations was hit by Katyusha rockets. The Houthis were responsible for rocket attacks on U.S. Naval vessels on October 9 and 12, 2016. While unsuccessful, the attacks led to U.S. retaliatory strikes against the radar installations used to target the ships.

Hitting the nail on the head: Stigmatising President Buhari – by Prof Sola Adeyeye

This rehash of the prominent positions held by Muslims in Nigeria is mischievous and quite unfortunate. It is the typical Nigerian game of chasing needless shadows rather than focusing on the arduous task of nation building.

Until recently, so-called Christians held commanding heights of the economic governance of our Republic. The Presidency, Headship of National Assembly, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Head of Service, Ministry of Works, Ministry of Finance, the Central Bank, the NNPC, the Stock Exchange etc were headed by so-called Christians.

Inviting Apostle Suleiman Proved DSS a Criminal Organization

When I say the DSS is a criminal organization, people think I am being mischievous. Imagine that they had to invite Apostle Suleiman after their mid night attempt to abduct him failed.

Suppose that they succeeded in abducting him that night, and probably even killed him afterward. Nobody would know that the DSS did it.

Do not be surprise to learn in the future that most of the high profile kidnappings and killings in recent Nigeria is actually carried out by the DSS. Most of the attacks carried out in recent Nigeria are too sophisticated to be executed by herdsmen.

Ondo Speaker, Deputy Impeached Over Alleged Frauld

Less than four weeks to the inauguration of the Ondo State governor-elect, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, members of the State Assembly have suspended the Speaker of the House, Jumoke Akindele, and her Deputy, Akin Olotu, over allegation of N15 million fraud.

The suspension of the Speaker was effected by 15 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and five member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) around 6p.m. yesterday at the Assembly Complex along Igbatoro Road, Akure.

Consequently, an Acting Speaker and Deputy Speaker, Malachi Coker and Ayodele Arowele, respectively, were hurriedly elected, while Olamide George was elected as the Majority Leader, as the lawmakers adjourned after the brief sitting.

ASO ROCK IS TO BLAME FOR THE OBITUARY RUMORS OF PRESIDENT BUHARI

The ochestrated campaign of the obituary of President Buhari was initiated and publicized by unknown ragtag online portal (can't remember the name now). Since the story went viral, the publisher has since retracted the story and apologized for publishing false story. As expected, some willing evil minded accomplices joined with the initiator of the falsehood to spread the fake news.

Aso Rock brought this upon the Presidency because of being miser with the truth. Why did media aides of Buhari always hide the truth from Nigerians? These fools are too daft to differentiate a public figure - persons elected into public office and people appointed into public office - from a private citizen. Buhari is a public figure. He's the President of 170 million Nigerians. The Aso Rock bunch of idiots don't know how democracy functions. These nonentities aren't smart enough to know that in a democracy, the President as a public man has no privacy at all. Nigerians have the right to probe, scrutinize, and pry into all the corners of Buhari's private life. We have the right to know where he goes for vacation, his health status, what he's doing on vacation, who went with him on vacation, what he eats on vacation, what sports or games he play for relaxation, what books he read, how long he's going to be away, when he'll be back, and so on and so forth. In civilized democracies, the people are supplied with all these information and much more.

US Federal Judges Push Back Against Trump Order, Stopping Deportations Nationwide

The ruling out of New York was the first of several Saturday night and Sunday early morning. Rulings out of federal courts in Massachusetts, Virginia, and Washington — all siding with challengers to Trump’s executive order — followed.

Less than 36 hours passed after President Trump signed his executive order on Friday restricting immigration on several fronts before four federal judges had issued rulings in quick succession blunting the effect of the order and calling its constitutionality into question.

The executive order — “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States” — temporarily halted the US refugee program for 120 days; indefinitely suspended the intake of refugees from Syria; and blocked all people from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen from entering the US for 90 days.

DSS invites Apostle Johnson Suleiman to it's Abuja office, I stand with the man of God

The DSS has invited Apostle Johnson Suleiman to it's Abuja office for interrogation by 10am on monday 30/1/2017.

However, if not for a brigandy approach, why don't the DSS invite the man of God earlier instead of going after him in the dead of the night in Ekiti state.

President Donald Trump signed three executive actions on Saturday- see them

1. Reorganization of National Security Council
2. Five-year lobbying ban on administration officials, and lifetime ban on admin. officials lobbying for a foreign country
3. Order for military leaders to present to Trump in 30 days an outline of strategy to defeat Islamic State

APC-Buhari regime: Social consciousness is building at feverish level


The diversion of the whole discourse to herdman-farmer, Christian-Muslim and North-South dichotomies favours the ruling class and their dying regime, as it distracts attention from the regime’s inability to deliver on its promise of change; same inability- like those of the previous regimes-that is at the root of these sectarian crises.
President Buhari
Cloud is gathering, and people are closing in on the regime. Ferments everywhere: students gradually regaining their lost strength, albeit on individual-campus basis and in spite of the sorry state of their once virile national organization (NANS); workers remained unbowed despite the deafening silence from Wabba-led NLC and other trade union centres; and the middle class are becoming more and more impatient (Tuface's recent call for protest is very instructive).

Many who defended the regime and "laughed at us" when we protested fuel price increase last May are today more militant and physical (than us) in denouncing the packaged deceit which APC-Buhari regime truly is. Most of them are already disillusioned. They could not imagine that under the regime of "change", it would require about N145,000.00 daily to clear sewage in Aso Rock. They seem scandalised by how expensive Buhari's sh*t has now become! Or how else does one defend allocation of billions of Naira to Aso Rock clinic annually (an allocation higher than those of teaching hospitals) and the president jets out at the slightest opportunity to London hospitals? In short, on daily basis, more and more people are realising there is no FUNDAMENTAL difference between APC and the ousted, and terminally ill PDP.

BREAKING: Putin, Trump want "real coordination" against Islamic State in Syria: Kremlin on Putin-Trump phone talks

Russian Presiden Putin and American Trump want "real coordination" against Islamic State in Syria as both discussed through phone talks.

President Trump chatted with Vladimir Putin Saturday, his first known conversation since taking office with the Russian leader he frequently complimented on the campaign trail.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer tweeted a photo of Trump on the phone in the Oval Office just after noon Saturday.

“@POTUS is now onto his 3rd of 5 head of government calls, speaking w Russian Pres Putin,” he tweeted.

Stop spreading false stories and images of attacks, Kaduna State Security Council warns

The Kaduna State Security Council today reviewed the situation in three local government areas that are under curfew. The council noted that the security agencies have taken actions that are preventing attacks, and stabilising the situation in Jema’a, Kaura and Zangon-Kataf local government areas.

The council welcomes the efforts of the security agencies in thwarting attacks and helping to foster a growing sense of safety. However, the council also received reports of a spike in false stories of attacks and killings. These appear tailored to promote panic within communities, create fear and provoke a spiral of reprisals and vengeance.

The Kaduna State Security Council warns that anyone spreading false stories and images of attacks is liable to be prosecuted. If any individual or community is attacked, the correct and lawful procedure is to report to traditional rulers and the police, who have the statutory duty to record the incident, investigate and ascertain its veracity and take steps to establish the identity of victim and perpetrator, amongst others.

Clearing Babachir Lawal or Self-Indictment, By Jibrin Ibrahim

The president owes himself an even greater duty – protecting his personal reputation as a fearless anti-corruption crusader. He can only do so when he takes allegations against his friends and staffers seriously and acts. By appearing to refuse to act, the president would be indicting himself in the court of public opinion.

This week, the big story has been that President Muhammadu Buhari has written to the Senate in response to the lawmakers’ indictment of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, and their call for his removal and prosecution. The letter provided an explanation, or rather, some excuses why the president would not act. The letter depicts a very high level of incompetence on the part of whoever wrote it but above all appears to make the argument that the presidential team can engage in corruption without consequence, which is the most direct route for the Buhari presidency to lose its credibility as a bastion of anti-corruption.

PRESS RELEASE: BEWARE OF SUICIDE BOMBERS’ NEW TACTICS OF EVADING DETECTION - ARMY

Attention of the Defence Headquarters (DHQ), has been drawn to a new tactic being adopted by female suicide bombers in the North East.

Female suicide bombers are now evading detection from security operatives by carrying babies on their back, that ordinarily pass them for innocent nursing mothers.

The two recent suicide bomb attacks in Madagali, Adamawa State are instructive in this regard.

The DHQ wishes to seize this opportunity to appeal to members of the public to be patient and cooperate with the military and other security agencies while carrying out thorough security search and checks as the essence is to nip in the bud the murderous intention of the Boko Haram suicide bombers.

Ordinary Name, Botanical Name By Pius Adesanmi

The 22-page 2017 State House Appropriation Bill (alias proposed Aso Rock budget for 2017) is a document that must be read only by the brave and the strong.

No lessons learnt from last year's debacle.
No lessons learnt from all the preceding years combined.

The preceding years are no excuse, no alibi. The rot is what President Buhari and his team are supposed to change.

If you are bold enough to read the document, you will be treated to more than a lifetime's worth of absurdities.

PRESS RELEASE: WE WILL DO ALL WE CAN TO SUPPORT LOCAL PRODUCERS & MANUFACTURERS— AG. PRESIDENT OSINBAJO

*Takes MSMES Clinic to Aba

Determined to ensure that Federal Government’s business oriented regulatory agencies become facilitators for Micro, Small, & Medium Scale Enterprises, MSMES, the Buhari presidency would do all within its ability to support them and ensure they become thriving businesses.


This assurance was given earlier today by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, during a visit to Aba, Abia State, where he participated in the First MSMES Clinics after the media launch in Abuja on Tuesday.

THE PASTORPRENEURS SULEIMAN JOHNSON ARRESTED


The Churches and Church leaders in Nigeria generally has lost the power of God and derailed from the foundation of Christianity which Christ laid upon Apostle Peter but highly sleeping in an Ocean of Worldliness.

The Church and Church leaders in the Bible were also SLEEPING deeply after Christ ascended to heaven until Stephen was murdered and the persecutors advanced to kill more top top Christian Leaders in the Bible before they woke from their Deep SLEEP.

The early Christian Leaders in the bible never knew they were in a serious problem until Paul and Silas were arrested and about to be terminated.

Take It Or Leave It: Why Nigerian Christians would yet suffer for a long long in the hands of Satan

Nigerian Christians would keep on suffering in the hands of Satan and his work force until they open their eyes to the reality of the spiritual and stop being carnal..

The damage done in the spiritual realm against the body of Christ by the so-called great men of God that the blind and deaf believers are running after is much more than the physical damages the Boko Haram and other Islamic group are doing. 2 Timothy 4: 3-4


Jesus Christ would fold his hands and let all the rebellious people called Christians in Nigeria be wasted until they know how to genuinely repent and leave those pastors who are making noise working for their own selfish gain come to Jesus Christ who died for them. Philippians 3:18-19

OPEN LETTER TO THE INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE, ON POLICE HOSTILITY, EXTORTION AND BRUTALITY

Again, I have decided to express my concerns about the increasing rate of mindless hostility, shameful extortion and dreaded brutality by men of the Nigerian police. Lest I forget, let me give accolades to a very few among your men who have distinguished themselves in their services to our fatherland but unfortunately, their diligence on their job go unnoticed and un-celebrated by the day. This is due to the huge criticism and damaging remarks from the victims of these cruelties.

Today, not only has 'OPEN' collection of bribe at check points – major bus stops, payment for bail and unlawful detention at police stations come to stay and unreported but it has become a thing of pride for the bad eggs among your men. They even go as far as ‘raiding’ innocent people returning from work and sometimes dispose them of their hard earned money and other valuables. Extortion by Policemen is aged and the victims are too many, but it can be stopped. Your men have brought so much disrepute to the Nigerian Police, so the bad eggs among them must be brought to book before it is too late.

Buhari's Health: FG Urges Nigerians To Disregard Subversive Messages

The Federal Government has urged Nigerians to disregard the subversive messages being circulated via text messaging and the Social Media, saying the fabricated messages are being orchestrated by those who feel threatened by the emerging order.


In a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said there is no iota of truth in the messages being circulated on the health of the President, who is hale and hearty, and the purported emergency meetings of the State Governors in Abuja or anywhere.

Presidential shield around Aso Rock thieves - President Buhari as the Chief clearance

It is sad that many people do not get it regarding President Buhari's letter to the Senate on Mr. Babachir Lawal. This isn't about whether the rules of engagement by the Senate and it's recommendations were fair or not. And it is not about whether the report was a minority report or otherwise.
It's about the integrity of the Presidency vis-a-vis the underpinning mission of the Administration itself to rid Nigeria of high level corruption. It is about the person, and inevitably the office, of the SGF having conducted itself in such a manner that, first and foremost, it could be accused of that "grass cutter" heist in the first place. It is about the propriety of key state officials and/or organs of state being found with fingers soiled in oil, even if legally explicable. Not all legal validation amounts to moral solidity. That is where the President misstepped. Much has been preached to the Presidency about symbolism and optics. If your sole mission is to fight corruption, then the mere appearance of possible corruption should be offensive to your office. Your credo should be that "there would be no corruption and there would be no appearance of corruption".

OSINBAJO: PRESIDENT BUHARI AWARE OF FRUSTRATIONS BUSINESSES HAVE WITH GOVT AGENCIES & WANTS TO END THEM

Protocols

I am pleased to be here at this media launch of the MSME Clinics.

Sometime in July 2015 Mr. President spoke to me about the frustrations of anyone who has to do business with government agencies.

He gave the example of an NGO that wanted to install a cancer screening equipment donated by a friendly government several years ago, and it took 7years to finally install it. He said how does the economy function when government agencies are prepared to deliberately or unwittingly frustrate economic agents.

CLARIFICATION ON THE LIBEL ALLEGATION AGAINST THE PREMIUM TIMES - ARMY

The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to erroneous impressions and insinuations on a libel case against the Premium Times to whip up sentiments .

Therefore, we wish to clarify that the issue at hand is purely allegation of libel in which Premium Times falsely and unjustifiably accused the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai, of false declaration of assets, owning mansions and estates in Dubai and further stated that he was being investigated by Code of Conduct Bureau for false declaration of assets in their publication of 12th December 2015.

Consequently, concerted efforts were made to make Premium Times retract the story and apologize, to no avail. As a law-abiding citizen, he took appropriate legal steps of seeking redress through the courts.

The Federal Government may have adopted the 16-point demand presented by Niger Delta leaders, under the aegis of Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), as working document to resolve the crisis in the oil-rich region, according to PANDEF.

Osinbajo is expected to visit two other Niger Delta states – Rivers and Akwa Ibom – as part of the peace shuttle to the region.

I am in consultation with ECOWAS: President Barrow to stay in Senegal until Jammeh Leave for Guinea

An Unconfirmed reports has it that Yahya Abdul-Aziz Jemus Junkung Jammeh with his familly has departed The Gambia to Guinea




The recently inaugurated president of The Gambia, Adama Barrow, has revealed he will be ruling the country from his hide out in Dakar, Senegal until he gets security clearance from ECOWAS. He was sworn into office on Thursday at the Gambian Embassy in Dakar as Yahya Jammeh refused to relinquish power after losing elections in December.

Jammeh cites irregularities during the electoral process in December.

Mr Barrow, a political novice, won the elections to end the over two-decades-old grip on power by Mr Jammeh. Since the announcement by the country's electoral commission, Mr Jammeh has sought to use various means to extend his rule, calling for fresh elections at some point.

Why Yahya Jammeh agrees to go into exile after election defeat

"I have decided today in good conscience to relinquish the mantle of leadership of this great nation," Jammeh said on state television, wearing a white robe and looking tired.

Yahya Jammeh, who led his country for 22 years but refused to accept his election defeat to new President Adama Barrow last month, has agreed to step down and go into exile. He said his decision was taken in the national interest after prayer and said he was proud to have served the Gambian people, imploring them to work together as one nation.

It has not been specified where Mr Jammeh would go into exile.

The news came as regional armies, who entered Gambian territory late on Thursday, were poised to remove Mr Jammeh by force just hours after the army chief recognised Mr Barrow as commander-in-chief.

How Dutch Authorities Ramp Up Fight Against Bitcoin Money Laundering - Bitcoin Magazine
