Mixed Reactions Ensue Over Slashing Of Salaries, Allowances Of Nigerian Senators

Featured Image

Nigerian senators have reacted to the announcement that their salaries and allowances are to undergo review.

Senator Kabir Marafa, a delegate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Zamfara Central, claimed that legislators in the country were not receiving high remunerations.

He said “I think there is general ignorance as to how much a Nigerian senator earns. I would want Nigerians to know exactly how much we earn; then they can come up with criticisms on basis of facts.”

When asked how much a Senator earns he still referred the reporter to find out from the banks.

Senator Dino Melaye, APC, from Kogi State, insisted that legislators must begin to sacrifice their comfort and allow a pay cut, saying that money realised from the exercise would be used for developmental projects and proper oversight roles.

In the same vein, Senator Ben Bruce, who represents Bayelsa-East Senatorial Zone, on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said that he would support any reduction in the pay of members of the National Assembly, noting that he was elected into the Senate to render service and not to waste tax-payers’ money.

Busted! Why Pres. Buhari Rejected 253 DSS Operatives Sent To Aso Villa

Featured Image

The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, has revealed that he turned down the transfer of 253 DSS operatives to the presidential villa because he hasn’t yet forgiven them for hate campaigning against him during the last general elections.

Pres Buhari

According to security source, this is due to the “various negative security reports it wrote against him during his struggle to become the President, including the report on the recent certificate saga.”

“The President has yet to forgive the DSS for what he sees as its antagonism against him before the last general elections. So, the President has decided to keep the agency at arm’s length and for his security, he will be using policemen and soldiers.”

The source added that though a DSS operative would still occupy the post of the Chief Security Officer of the villa, “the CSO will be a mere figure-head because he would have no control over the security at the villa.”

Information gathered also showed that since Buhari was sworn in, information about his itinerary and schedules were no longer passed to the DSS as is the tradition under the former President.

Revealed-How plot to kidnap NASS Clerk, abort Tuesday inauguration backfired

Featured Image

Three different plots but with similar goal: to abort the inauguration of the 8th National Assembly on Tues­day, June 9 failed only when the first leg, and the most crucial one, could not fly.

The first plot was to kidnap the Clerk to the National Assembly (CNA), Alhaji Salisu Abubakar Maikasuwa (OFR), from his resi­dence in a highbrow district of Abuja in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.
If that plot had succeeded, the next stage was a carefully composed text message that would be sent out to National Assembly mem­bers-elect of a purported meeting with Presi­dent Muhammadu Buhari at the International Conference Centre (ICC).

The text message was expected to draw out certain members-elect with a view to keeping them stranded at the ICC while some mem­bers would access the two chambers of the National Assembly, get the required numbers and then, conduct elections.
The timing of the meeting was keenly de­bated but it was gathered that 9:00am was eventually agreed upon.


The third leg of the plan was to ensure that after the favoured group was seated in both chambers, no movement would be allowed into the National Assembly thereafter until the inauguration and election of presiding officers was concluded.

The plan was almost sailing through but for the refusal of the person central to the plot to step out of his house on that Tuesday morning.But for the refusal of Maikasuwa, to step out of his house in the wee hours of Tuesday morning, the inauguration of the 8th National Assembly would have been aborted.

Saturday Sun gathered from National As­sembly sources that the plot to kidnap Mai­kasuwa few hours to inauguration of the new National Assembly was to keep him incom­municado for several hours.

With Maikasuwa nowhere around the Na­tional Assembly, the inauguration would have been suspended as the 1999 Constitution (as amended) stipulates, while the rules in both chambers recognize only the CNA as the legal authority to inaugurate the National Assembly in the President’s stead, after the Proclamation would have been issued.

Saturday Sun gathered that when some un­identified men got to Maikasuwa’s gate, “be­tween the hours of 4:00am and 5:00am, his security details were told to call him from the house because they have an urgent message from President Buhari to give him.”

Maikasuwa refused to fall for the trick.

“When he was contacted via intercom and the message was relayed to him, he refused to step out of his private quarters.Immediately, his security men sensed something was amiss and radioed back to the National Assembly security for help and backup. They sent a distress call to us…”, the source added.

The source however refused to disclose whether help and reinforcement came from the National Assembly Sergeant-At-Arms, the federal legislature’s traditional security agency.

Somehow, Maikasuwa beat the security cordon thrown round his house and made it to the National Assembly. Safely ensconced in his office, he reportedly told his staff that armed with the inauguration Proclamation, which had arrived his office on June 1 from President Buhari, he was ready to do just that at the stipulated time of 10:00am.

With Maikasuwa’s botched kidnap, the second and third leg of the plot was activat­ed. First, the text message was sent out and in fact, Saturday Sun confirmed from reliable National Assembly sources that two set of text messages were sent. The first set was to mem­bers-elect and the second was to Maikasuwa.

The first text message directed mem­bers-elect to go to ICC for a crucial meeting with Buhari. Some senators-elect complied while some did not. Rather, they headed to the Senate chamber for the inauguration cer­emony.

The second text message sent to the CNA di­rected him to delay the inauguration as mem­bers-elect would be meeting with the president at 10:00am. The text message pleaded for a slight delay.
Another National Assembly source dis­closed that, “the text message was not from the President because official lines of com­munication are known; text messages are not known sources of correspondence between the arms of government. If there truly was any need for a delay in the inauguration, the pres­ident would have communicated that to the CNA via the same medium the Proclamation came…”

The third leg of the plan: the security cor­don around the NASS ensured that as early as 6:00am, nobody was allowed into the Nation­al Assembly White House Complex, which houses the two chambers of the Senate and the House of Representatives, from the first gate which is usually referred to as the Mopol gate.

Those accredited for the inauguration met security vehicles that were used to block the entrance to the National Assembly complex.
The accredited persons, including the media, protocol and support staff et al were re-direct­ed to access the complex from the Presidential Villa.

At the Villa gate, by the Supreme Court axis, only selected people with the inauguration tags were allowed entry. At a point, Villa security refused even people who had the tags on to ac­cess the National Assembly.

Security men, including those from the DSS, Police, Civil Defence as well as the Sergeant- At-Arms told media men who insisted on ac­cessing the complex from the Mopol gate that “the inauguration has been postponed.”

At exactly 9:52am, Maikasuwa, decked in ceremonial robe of bald and gold with the wig, entered the Senate chamber, waited for eight minutes and on the dot of 10:00am, banged the gavel to signal the commencement of the inau­guration by reading the president’s proclama­tion. There were only 57 senators seated. Some were outside the premises while others were at the ICC where they watched the session on live television.

Featured Image

A video footage involving an ex-commissioner in Zamfara State, engaged in an orgy of sexual activity with an unidentified woman in a room has gain popularity on Social media as many are calling for his arrest and prosecution.

The two-minute video which was obtained by Daily Trust, saw the erstwhile commissioner, who was a member of the recently dissolved cabinet in the state, indulging in an explicit sexual activity with an unidentified lady in a room.

It was learnt that the video generated loads of criticism in the state as citizenry tagged it ‘the most scandalous video in the history of the state’.

It is unknown who recorded the sex video, whether a third party in the act or a mounted camera, however, some were of the opinion that one of the actors might have been recording it because of the unsteadiness of the recording.

When the state deputy governor, Malam Ibrahim Wakkala Muhammad, was contacted by pressmen, he said he would not stop anyone from publishing the story but it would be better if the story was left alone.

When the ex-commissioner involved in the sex video was contacted, he said: “I am on my way to Gusau, give me some time and I would call you back when I arrive, please.” Despite promising to call back, he did not.

Spokesman of the state police command, DSP Sanusi Amiru, said he could not comment on the issue as he was yet to see the video.

DAILY TRUST is yet to release the video for public consumption.

Blogger’s Diary-The Baby Mama Offer

Featured Image

Emeh, please , I want you to have my baby.Would take care of you,set you up.You would even go abroad to give birth, blog from there.Infact, you wouldn’t have to work if you don’t want to..

What? Is this some kind of joke? I retorted

No! It’s no joke. I really want you to give me a baby .Please, tell me what you want to make that possible..Anything you want..

 But your wife just welcomed a baby last month? You flew out of the country to be with her, posting all her photos on the net,so how can you want another baby from me again?I asked..

Well, you are a part of me..I really can’t stop loving you and I want you to be with me..

“I smiled…This was the man of my dreams,young, handsome,well to do, from a good family and I used to love him…Let me take that back! I was madly inlove with him..

In another world,I would have his baby,babies.We would live happily ever after.

YESSSSSSSSSS… that would have been my reaction 4 years ago.It’s 2015 and I have zero tolerance for bullshit.

I met him when I just got into Lagos in 2009.He was everything your mama warned you against.He was handsome, rude, reckless but passionate..
I was warned never to get close to him.The first time ladies at the professional film school I was attending at the time ,saw him chasing after me,they told me ..

EMEH..RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN..THIS GUY WOULD SO DUMP YOU, YOU WON’T RECOVER…..

Well, I was going to heed to their advice anyway.I was more attracted to older men,atleast men in their 30’s,not a boy in his 20’s..Blame it on my long first relationship with a man over 10 years my senior .

Well, I had been used to being worshiped(Wink),I had been used to meeting men obsessed with me , but there was something about this boy..His first statement to me was….

“Tomorrow is Sallah, do you wanna come to my house , we could smoke and have some drinks,basically hangout?”

Not that I engaged in any of those vices,however, I was taken aback by his brazenness but being one who was adventurous, my interest was piqued .
After following me and trying to get my number for over 30 minutes, I gave him and he promised to call the next day.

The next day, he called me as early as 6am,requesting he wanted to bring me breakfast.No man had done that before..It was all about Lunch ,dinner..*I’m carried away by the simplest gestures*..

As I made to protest, he told me he was already at my school gate to take me to buy stuff for breakfast..I hesitantly got up and we took a walk to a renowned supermarket .He just kept buying stuff, telling me to pick what I wanted.I declined.He used his prerogative .

That was the beginning of our relationship.A love which was the envy of many.

It was everything you read about in mills and booms.It was a total fantasy and unreal relationship.From the day I step foot in his house, he wouldn’t let me go..It took great effort
 to let me go to school, it was passionate as was deadly..

Many waited ,gave it three days..He didn’t see women twice.But I was there,he deleted all numbers from his phone,called ladies he knew and told them to keep off, gave me his phone to answer calls.He was done with playing..We made so many promises and one of such was, even if by a miracle, we didn’t end up together..I would always be that one woman he would still see if married.We were going to end up together anyway .

But we had one problem, his mum returned from a trip abroad and our relationship began to suffer.She wasn’t too fond of me.Couldn’t blame her..I would feel the same way if my son won’t do a thing without his so called girlfriend being at home with him.So, she was forced to accept me to keep him at home..

The problem with us is, we had never been apart for a day.It was December and I had to travel to see my dad and sisters in Jos..He didn’t want that ..His mum had to intervene and told him to let me go fo holidays..

His sister had a wedding on the second of January and he made me promise I wouldn’t miss it.It was his only opportunity to introduce the whole family to me..

So, when I got to Jos, I told him I would not make it back for the wedding because I had to be with my family since I spent Christmas with him..Then the problems started..If you are not here it is over.Bla bla bla..

I stood my ground and doubts began to appear..It was then I realized he had always forced his opinion on me.We argued on everything .Yes, he was very learned , well read and probably the most intelligent man I had been with till that moment ,however, he wanted me to do what he wanted, act how he wanted. He insisted I go practice law despite my opinion to the contrary.

My wife can not be in the entertainment industry.Better get yourself together, I’ll talk to my lawyer sister so you can serve in her chambers.He insisted

We would argue about religion and even though he was Muslim , he would claim to know more about Christianity than me “

Always made me feel less intelligent than I actually was .So being away from him for a week began to take it’s toll.
After coercion, I had to leave Jos for Lagos on the day of the wedding .I got to Lagos and rushed to the venue as he kept calling me incessantly..

On getting to the wedding, I felt  so out of place but he was so excited to see me and our passionate love was back.He wouldn’t stay away for a minute .He made me sit with his family and they were subtly shocked.He didn’t care..

So, my course had come to an end.It was time to face the real world.To go do an internship and I had to move from his vicinity to Ikeja..

Well, lets just say the distance put a strain on our relationship.He didn’t just trust me, I didn’t trust him because we were not together as we usually were..

So ,I decided it was best to end the relationship.During one of his visits to my home then, I told him.He begged me not to do that.He said if he left, he would never return.   As much as I wanted to break free from this toxic relationship.I didn’t believe he could live without me..After begging for a while, I opened the door and asked him to leave and he said…

Emeh, don’t do this..Don’t bring out that monster in me.You know who I was before we met. Don’t make me go there again”

I was too broken to care.I needed to be sane again..I let him walk.He walked and we never met again..

It took me two years to get over him.I was devastated.I couldn’t be with anyone else.I would fantasize he would walk through the door.But he never did and too stubborn to bow own, i put on a brave face,buried my self in the pain and vowed to be a success story..He never believed  I would succeed if I wasn’t a lawyer..

So, Last year, he got married and his wife gave birth this year..

Emeh, listen ,let me change your miserable life.You need me in it.Stop deceiving yourself.

I smiled. He had never changed..Always trying to put me down..Make me feel less important and feel no one could ever love me except him.That was his trick with me..As much as he loved, he was emotionally abusive.

Years ago, that was all I needed to hear..It worked for us..His being abusive,and all..This time, I’m a changed woman.I know what I want..And as much as I would like to indulge in care-free,fantasy ..and keep to that promise of sticking together even if we didn’t end up with eachother, I know one thing..I’m not ready to be a BABY MAMA!

Boko Haram kidnap victim vows to keep unborn child despite threats(Photo)

Featured Image

Um Haleema, a Boko Haram kidnap victim has vowed to keep her pregnancy.She was just 16 years old when she was kidnapped.

She was captured trying to escape, along with three of her friends, as Boko Haram burned and ransacked her village.
During her captivity, Um Haleema was forced to watch men, women and children slaughtered. She was forced into marriage. Forced to wait on a “husband” she hated. But while she watched, she says she was also waiting — for a chance to break free. And after six long months, it finally came.
“I had planned my escape from the beginning, “There was a time my husband spent two weeks away, so I attempted to escape but guards returned me and beat me.”

Eventually, her captors’ vigilance began to slip and she managed to escape. In her fear, all she remembers is walking for what felt like days until she finally reached safety.
She arrived home to discover that her father had been killed by the same Boko Haram militants who had held her captive for almost a year. She also found she had become pregnant by her Boko Haram husband.
Now, seven months along in her pregnancy, she has agreed to speak to CNN..
The fear, she says, is still with her. This time, though, it’s the men in her own community she is scared of.
“People in this village are rejecting me because of the pregnancy, “Some will be happy to have me dead. Many people are even saying that I should go for an abortion.”
It’s an option she refuses to contemplate, even though she says local men have let it be known they will not tolerate the children of Boko Haram living amongst them. She says they have threatened to kill both her and her baby.
On hearing that her daughter had been abducted, Um Haleema’s mother says she immediately feared the worst.
“Anybody captured by Boko Haram is presumed dead,”They abducted my step-daughter‎ and my daughter. They took a total of seven girls from this house.We heard about one girl who died after she attempted an abortion, losing both the mother and the baby,” she says. “The girl was the only child to her mother, so that scared us. If God wishes, she will give birth safely. Life is in the hands of God alone.”
When CNN spoke to the men Um Haleema accused of threatening her in her village. Part of a local vigilante group, they denied making the threats.Their leader agreed to speak CNN.
“I am not aware of any woman in this village who was impregnated by them,” he said. “If any woman is found to be pregnant, in our tradition, the pregnancy is considered Haram (unlawful), hence we cannot accept them wholeheartedly because they can be like baby snakes.”
When the interview ended and the camera stopped rolling, the vigilante leader said that his group didn’t believe Um Haleema had been forced into marriage and said that she and her unborn child will always be viewed with suspicion. But he refused to comment on what he and his men might do about it.

Why we haven’t been to church in 8 years-Pquare

Featured Image

Africa’s most famous twins, Psquare have revealed they haven’t been to Church in 8 years.They have an explanation ,as they told Nigerian Camera in a recent interview….

“Each time we attend, other worshipers would not listen to the Pastor’s sermon again. All eyes will just be on us. Instead of praying, some people will even decide to be starring at us.
We were not comfortable with that and thought we were distracting a lot of people from serving their God, so we said to ourselves that we should stop going” they said.“All men are equal before God, so we don’t encourage people to abandon their primary purpose of being in church because of us”
