#BringBackOurGirls: Yoruba People are not Dumb

The leader of Boko Haram, Ibrahim Abubakar Shekau, 42, Fulani, in his latest video released by the Associated Press, said that if the parents of the missing girls should release their images and names, he will kill them all.
In the same video, Shekau allegedly claimed to have sold the girls as commanded by Allah.
The above is a pointer to the fact that 200 girls couldn't have been abducted in the circumstances we have been made to believe. There is no evidence of their true names or images.

Chibok girls: President GEJ inaugurates fact-finding committee

President Goodluck Jonathan today inaugurated a 30-man fact-finding committee to look into the rescue of kidnapped Chibok girls. The committee is expected to speak to the public at least once a day to keep everyone abreast with recent developments on the case.

The committee will look into issues surrounding the abduction of the girls and also consider possible rescue plans. While inaugurating the committee, the President said;

"You will agree with me that this is not a committee that brings joy to me and indeed our country men and women. However, it is a necessary step which government must take to confront the sad circumstances surrounding the abduction of female students, our daughters in Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok.
First let me make it very clear – luckily the Minister of Justice is here – that this committee is neither a judicial committee nor an administrative committee to look into the affairs of this incident. No. It is not administrative panel set up by federal government or a judicial committee. I must make that very clear because those are the responsibilities of the state and not that of the federal government. Continue...

Poor devices also accountable for bad system companies - NCC

 In accordance with Director of Public Affairs, Nigerian Communications Commission, Mr Tony Ojobo, the utilization of substandard phones is just a major contributor to poor  network service telecommunications subscribers experience sometimes. He explained this yesterday at Abuja while talking to journalists. 
"Substandard phones have contributed to the level of poor services because there is a certain required power in cell phones that would enable it to transmit signals. If the requirement is not met, then it will create problems in the network and that is why when people call a particular number they are unable to reach the number. This is not necessarily because there is no service there; but because their phones are not powered enough to sense signals because they are substandard" he said.

By bombing Yugoslavia US wipes floor with int'l law - Expert

15 years ago the United States cut up Yugoslavia's map. If prior to that Washington had played behind the scenes, in the situation of Serbia the Americans acted openly. Without the UN SC resolution, the NATO bombed peaceful cities for 11 weeks ruthlessly destroying the civilian and military infrastructure, thus in essence wiping the floor with international law.

What in the West would later be called "humanitarian intervention" has in fact nothing to do with humanism – 78 days of bombing took lives of 2,000 people, two thirds of whom were peaceful civilians. Over 10,000 people were wounded.

Abuja shutdown is illegal – Gbajabiamila

The Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, on Monday decried the Federal Government’s decision to shut down the nation’s capital, Abuja, for the World Economic Forum.
He said the government’s action was illegal and could not be defended in law.
The forum holds in Abuja between Wednesday and Friday this week.
The government has ordered the closure of its offices for the period except for those providing essential services.
It also advised private organisations with large number of employees to shut down for the three days.
But, Gbajabiamila faulted the decision, saying that it breached the Public Holidays Act.
“This government continues to falter at every turn and gets it wrong on daily basis,” a statement by his research aide, Mr. Wasiu Olanrewaju-Smart, quoted the minority leader as saying.
