Herdsmen Killings: Miyetti Allah Demands For Justice, Compensation

Featured Image

Cattle breeders under the auspices of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) have proposed measures to tackle the herdsmen-farmers clashes in which many have died.

The association is demanding:

  • Compensation for its members;
  • Immediate disarmament of militants
  • Justice for those who died in clashes

The MACBAN has also faulted Federal Government’s proposed establishment of cattle colonies, saying it should rather revive the existing grazing reserves across the country.

Emir Sanusi Admits To Be Patron Of Miyetti Allah Alongside Sultan Of Sokoto, Others

The proposals are coming at a time when Benue and Taraba states accused Fulani herdsmen of being behind the killings in their states.

Seventy-three people were killed in the New Year’s Day attacks in Logo and Guma local government areas of Benue State. They were given mass burial last Thursday.

In neighbouring Taraba State, 55 people were killed in Lau Local Government. About 233 bodies were buried last week.

Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has earlier accused the Miyetti Allah leadership of masterminding the killings. He called for their arrest and prosecution.

Benue Attacks: “Withdraw Anti-Open Grazing Law” – Fulani Group Gives Condition For Peace

However, during a press conference in Abuja on Sunday, MACBAN National Secretary Baba Usman told reporters that the pastoralists had been neglected and suffered various attacks, including the one in which he claimed 732 died in Mambilla Jos.

He said: “The current situation in our opinion is fuelled by the draconian laws put in place by some state governments with singular aim of chasing our people out of the states simply for ethnic hatred.

“The anti-open grazing law which started in Ekiti State before it was replicated in Benue, Taraba and other states, is nothing more than  a symbol of intolerance and do not in any way intend to solve the farmers/herders conflict as the livestock breeders interest is neither captured in the law nor in its implementation mechanism.

“While, as a body, we are not against any law that can engender peace, create societal harmony and stability, we cannot oblige any self-centered regulation with primordial sentiments based on injustice, intolerance and infringement of people’s rights.

“It is no longer hidden that to achieve these, some state governments are sponsoring ethnic militia against our people, recruiting and arming  locals to kill our people and rustle their livestock as seen recently in Benue and Taraba.”

“We confirm the position of his royal highness, the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, that in spite of the fact that 732 of our people were killed in Mambilla and 82 women and children killed in Numan, nobody was arrested. We demand the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators of these heinous crimes without further delay.

“We further state that the refutal of the Emir’s position by the Taraba State Governor is merely a continuation of his desperate act of hiding the state government’s involvement and protection of the perpetrators of these acts.

“Pay compensation to the victims of all crises to reduce their level of suffering.”

There should be, “immediate disarmament of all illegally armed militias across the country in the interest of peace, security and stability.

“We condemn in totality any attempt of branding herdsmen as terrorists as is being clamoured for in certain quarters. We view this as the continuation of the hate agenda on our people and a very dangerous trend for the country.”

 “We call on the government to pay compensation to victims of all crises to reduce their level of suffering.

“If the government accepts that, it is left for them to establish a committee that will go and access the level of damage.

“We have a document of members that were affected by the pastoralists in the North-East but what we discovered is that none of them were captured in the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) programme because they are not sedentary.”

First Batch Of Newly Recruited Teachers In Kaduna ‘To Start Work In February’

First Batch Of Newly Recruited Teachers In Kaduna ‘To Start Work In February’

Press release:

All teachers being recruited in Kaduna State will get permanent and pensionable appointments, the state governor has said.

Governor Nasir El-Rufai said this on Monday during a meeting with the chairmen of the 23 local government councils and their Education Secretaries.

The meeting received reports from all the 23 councils on the conditions in the schools in their areas. The State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) also gave an update on the recruitment process for new teachers. SUBEB officials confirmed that the marking of scripts for new recruits has been concluded, and they assured the governor that the first batch of newly recruited teachers should be ready for deployment by the middle of February 2018.

The council officials reported that most teachers in Kaduna State are reporting to work, and ignoring the NUT strike. The field reports indicated that NUT officials are persisting in their harassment of teachers that are reporting for duty. This illegal action is being aggravated by the seizure of school attendance registers by some of the union officials.

The meeting also heard that many teachers who did not apply anew, or were dissuaded by their union from taking the recruitment test are requesting a second chance. Responding to this plea from the Education Secretaries, Mr. El-Rufai said that SUBEB has a programme of continuous recruitment, and as such will give every teacher that is willing a chance to apply and be considered for recruitment.

“We are not interested in pushing any one away,” the governor said. “We are pushing bad people away so that good ones can come in. That is why we are recruiting 25,000 to take the place of 21,780.”

The governor said that the police and civil defence forces will provide protection for schools. He warned union officials to desist from impeding teachers that are reporting for work, or from seizing attendance registers.

“The right to strike does not include the right to prevent others from working. Union officials are reminded that school registers are public property, and seizing them amounts to an illegal act.”

Fayose Bans Fayemi From Holding Public Office In Ekiti For 10 years

Featured Image

The Ayodele Fayose-led government of Ekiti State on Monday banned former governor of the state, Kayode Fayemi, from holding public office for 10 years.

The decision followed the receipt of the report of the Judicial Commission of Inquiry which investigated the handling of state finances during the Fayemi administration between October 2010 and October 2014.

Kayode Fayemi

The panel ordered the former governor to account for the whereabouts of N2.75 billion allocated from the N25 billion bond obtained by the government for the execution of contract for the construction of Ultra-Modern market in Ado Ekiti, which was never executed.

The state also barred his former Commissioner for Finance, Mr. Dapo Kolawole, for the same number of years.

The panel also recommended that the duo should refund various sums of money to the state government coffers.

The State Executive Council accepted the recommendations and adopted the panel’s White Paper at Monday’s emergency meeting.

The report declared Fayemi, now a Minister of Mines and Steel Development, and Kolawole “as unfit to hold any public office in the state.‎”

“Why I Performed With My NYSC Kit At OLIC 4” – LAX

Featured Image

Nigerian singer, Damilola Afolabi, popularly known as LAX got series of good and bad comments over his outfit on Stage at Olamide Live In Concert, OLIC 4, held last year December.

The singer jumped on stage wearing a complete National Youth Service Corps uniform. LAX has however explained why he chose to dress as a corp member to the event of that nature.

He said,

“I had just completed my National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, programme at the time, and I wanted to pay homage to the scheme and Nigeria in my own way.

I also wanted to inspire people to know that they can pursue their dreams and still go to school. It is not too good that people always like to dwell on the negatives when reacting to issues.

I really didn’t pay attention to anybody who criticised me, and that’s because the people who appreciated and commended me were more. Those were the ones that I paid attention to,”

While reacting to the wide notion that his career has suffered major setback after he left Starboy Records, owned by Wizkid and that Nigerians are not listening to his music anymore. LAX said;

“People who are saying that need to go and check the records. I had three big songs that had a lot of views online last year. I travelled to a lot of countries and I enjoyed massive love everywhere that I performed. I will be releasing my debut album this year and I want my fans to watch out for it. People should listen to good music, not trash.”

“To be honest, I have more fans outside the country than in Nigeria. Nowadays, one can actually go online and find out where majority of downloads, streaming and other Internet activities come from. And I have discovered that most of my fans are in the US, followed by Canada and London. Obviously, they want me there more and that’s why I usually go there on tour. I had amazing experiences when I travelled out of the country on tour. I went to about 14 cities in Europe and America.”

Lagos Beams Attention On Tax Defaulters, ‘Sues’ AY And Davido

Featured Image

The Lagos State Government has focused its attention on high-profile tax defaulters in the state with the aim to ensure high level of compliance with its tax laws.

This is just as the state government has reportedly sued entertainers Davido and Ayo Makun, better known as AY, for tax evasion, as the duo are accused of evading tax despite high earnings from their business.

A court paper, seen by The Punch on Saturday, indicated that the state government had dragged the duo before the court for alleged tax evasion.

The news outlet disclosed that while Davido was charged before a Lagos high court in July 2017 and may risk a jail term if convicted AY was also charged to court in 2016 for failing to file his tax returns.

“Notable among these alleged tax offenders are two of Nigeria’s celebrated artistes –Davido and AY, the comedian. Both artistes have had a long standing battle with the Lagos Internal Revenue Service for tax evasion.

“Davido, who has record deals with Sony Music Entertainment and endorsement agreements with various companies in Nigeria, has not filed his tax returns or remit any taxes to the Lagos State Government,” a top source in government said.

The source continued: “Remember that Davido said he made N500m from his N30bn concert recently. We must know how much he paid to the LIRS.”

“AY too said the same thing. The comedian claimed to be paying his taxes to Ondo State, where he hails from. It seems these celebrities don’t understand that the tax law stipulates that you must pay your tax to your state of residence.”

“Anyway, we are already in court. Others will soon appear in court if they don’t obey the state tax law. You can’t be making money in Lagos and refuse to pay tax.”

Reekado Won’t Apologise For Saying He Is Better Than Lil Kesh – Manager

Featured Image

Reekado Banks’ brother and manager, Temi Solomon, has insisted that his artiste doesn’t feel sorry and would not apologize for saying he is a better artiste than Lil Kesh.

Recall that Reekado was adjudged the Next Rated Artiste at the 2015 Headies Awards, an award that generated mixed reactions. Olamide, who was Lil Kesh’s label boss at the time, reacted harshly to the news of his artiste loosing out in the award.

While reacting to Olamide’s public outburst, Don Jazzy. Reekado’s boss said he was ready to let Olamide and his boy have the car prize if that was what made them upset. That comment degenerated into a war of words on the Internet before both parties were implored to sheathe their swords.

Two years after the ugly event, at his recent Thank You concert in Ibadan, Reekado declared in pidgin English that he is better than Lil Kesh and his father.

He said,

“I remember when they said I didn’t deserve the Next Rated award. The person that they said deserved the award, I am better than his father.”

When Sunday Scoop reached out to Reekado’s manager and brother over the statement, he said his brother only said what was on his mind, but he didn’t mean to hurt anyone

According to him,

“It is not something I want to talk about. If certain people were annoyed because he spoke his mind, I think those people are not his fans. Our fans would not complain about what he said in that manner. He didn’t mean to hurt or harm anyone and we don’t have something against the artiste (Lil Kesh).”

Temi further stated that, Banks was not misinterpreted, neither was he under any influence when he said he is better than Lil Kesh.

He said,

“If he said he is better than someone, he probably meant it. I really want to know the fans who were angry about it. Was it Reekado’s fans or the person’s fans? He said what was on his mind and it is not compulsory for everyone to agree with him.

Victor Umeh: APGA Candidate Wins Anambra Central Senatorial Rerun Election

Featured Image

The candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Victor Umeh, was on Sunday officially declared the winner of the Anambra Central Senatorial rerun election held on Saturday, January 13, 2018.

According to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Umeh, a former National Chairman of the APGA, defeated 13 other challengers to clinch the Senatorial seat.

In an election that witnessed one of the lowest turnouts in history of elections in the country, Mr Umeh garnered 64,879 votes out of about 67000 votes cast in the seven local government areas of the zone.

Umeh also defeated current Labour and Employment Minister, Senator Chris Ngige of the All Progressives Congress.

It was learnt that Ngige had asked his supporters to boycott the election, saying he had written INEC of his withdrawal from the race when the election was to hold.

The minister wondered why the electoral body “mischievously included his name on the list of contestants” after he had since January 2016 written the electoral commission to withdraw from the race.

He threatened to sue INEC for trying to ridicule him and use his name to give credibility to the election.

Meanwhile, here is the summary of the results for other candidates: AA-35, ACD-33, ADC-57, GPN-48, ID-14, KOWA-12, LP-95, MPPP-111, NCP-72, PDP-5, and UPP-55.
