Odi egwu! Nnamdi Kanu spits fire
The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has asked the Federal Government not to provoke him, adding that he has the capacity to make the country ungovernable. He described an alleged plan by the Federal Government to arrest him with the International Police as an effort in futility. Kanu’s reaction followed recent revocation of his bail by Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
“My lawyers are waiting for an Interpol red notice against my name and all hell will break loose. If the intention of Binta Nyako is to curtail my travels, thereby limiting IPOB diplomatic offensive, then let me assure Biafrans that our enemies have failed,” Nnamdi Kanu said. “Should they request Interpol intervention in this matter, I will give my lawyers here in the UK the instructions we need to launch a no-holds-barred legal assault against Nigeria…I warn the Federal Government not to dare me because I’m capable of causing trouble for Nigeria.”
Wawu. Oga Nnamdi don vex. He should sha not forget the people he plans on liberating still live in Nigeria o. Like Moses, he needs to step into the land of bondage and lead them out into the Promised Land. We’re waiting.
No plans to probe outgoing governors – EFCC
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has dismissed media reports that it raised a team to probe the outgoing governors, Ibikunle Amosun, Rochas Okorocha and Abdullaziz Yari who are ending their second term in office in May. The commission in a statement by its acting spokesman, Tony Orilade, said: “It is instructive to note that the report did not give the composition and terms of reference of the purported teams set up by the EFCC.
“The report is a figment of the imagination of the reporter as everything about the setting of the teams ended with the first paragraph without details of such teams being set up. Again, the story is not true, as the EFCC does not go after anybody, including ex-governors on speculative grounds.”
Oh, since una no get plan to probe, why una come dey tension Okorocha for no reason? The poor man BP go don high pass some of his statues.
Truly, too many cooks spoil the broth
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has expressed concern over the growing number of political parties in Nigeria, saying it had made the conduct of elections cumbersome. INEC National Commissioner and chairman of its Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, stated this in his speech delivered during the presentation of Certificates to Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom, his Deputy and members of the State House of Assembly in Makurdi.
He said: “The ballot papers are getting more complicated for the Nigerian people. Sorting, counting and entering the scores of candidates in Form EC8A series is becoming more cumbersome. Polls are closing late on account of the number of parties and ad hoc staff of the commission in remote areas and difficult terrains are exposed to danger.
“While the commission can deregister parties that fail to meet the constitutional threshold embedded in the 4th Alteration to the constitution, it takes deregistered parties 30 days to make a comeback as a registered political party can reapply and get registered on the liberal conditions in the constitution.”
LOL. Shebi na una use una own hand register most of those family meetings?
[Don’t] call Messi by His name – Pope Francis
Head of the Catholic Church and Sovereign of the Vatican City state, Pope Francis, has told football fans to resist the temptation to either compare Lionel Messi with God or call him ‘God’ as that amounts to sacrilege. The pontiff was speaking to host Jordi Evole on the ‘Salvados’ programme broadcast on Spanish TV channel La Sexta when he was asked about people referring to Messi as ‘God’.
Evole asked the Pope: “Is it sacrilege to say that Messi is God?” Pope Francis replied: “In theory it is sacrilege, you cannot say it… People say ‘God’ like they say ‘I adore you’. Adoring is only for God.”
Your Holiness, I’m sure if you visit a sports viewing centre and hear what boys call Messi and Ronaldo you’ll immediately order for penitence for everyone present. Our mouths are sinful!
Harry Potter series…burns
Catholic priests in northern Poland have burned books they consider to be sacrilegious, including ones from the Harry Potter boy wizard series. An evangelical group, the SMS from Heaven Foundation, published pictures of the burning – which took place in the city of Koszalin – on Facebook. The Facebook post justifies the bonfire with Bible quotes condemning magic. The group sends Christian messages via SMS. “We obey the Word,” the post says (in Polish).
Some comments on the Koszalin group’s Facebook post express scorn for the priests’ book-burning event. One critic says: “I have not met anyone yet who would rape, murder and steal in the name of Harry Potter. In the name of the Bible, yes. Bad news, gentlemen!”
Mtcheew. Some of these people need to be checked into psychiatric hospitals. As if the Bible isn’t chockfull of its own wizardry…oops, sorry, miracles.
Unlike Craig David, Maurizio isn’t walking away
Maurizio Sarri insisted he would never consider walking away from Chelsea despite enduring open hostility from many supporters throughout Sunday’s controversial 2-1 comeback win over Cardiff City. Chelsea’s unlikely late fightback followed sustained chants against Sarri from large groups of irate travelling Blues supporters that included “F— Sarriball”, “We want Sarri out” and “You don’t know what you’re doing”.
Asked if supporter opposition could ever make him consider resigning, Sarri replied: “No, no, I want to stay here. When I arrived here, this team, on the table, was 30 points behind Manchester City. They were fifth. So I want to stay here, I want to improve the results.”
Mtcheew. For your sake better improve the results, if not Abramovich will hand you that result sheet called sack letter.
