  Head of the Nigeria Office of the West African Examinations Council, Patrick Areghan, has said that Nigeria is not ready for the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination



Areghan said, "It will be calamitous to offer the exam to students in the first term; as we all know, the schools are running different terms. We do not know when the exam will be conducted, but we will conduct it if the government says so.

"If the government says, 'don't conduct exam', we cannot do it. Nigeria federation is not ready for the 2021 exit exam. We are starting all over again because we are struggling; some countries just started their educational system afresh.

"Nobody is ready for the exam due to COVID-19. If the government says we should conduct the exam today, we are ready for the exam. We can't conduct it in April, May, June, but to obey the Nigerian government and in conjunction with the other four countries and then the international timetable will be drawn."

Areghan further stated that the private examination was primarily designed to help candidates seeking tertiary institutions' admission to reduce the waiting time for results and beat admission deadlines..

The analysis of the statistics of the performance of candidates shows that out of the 7,289 candidates that sat for the examination, 2,938 candidates, representing 40.31 per cent, obtained credit and above in a minimum of any five subjects (with or without English Language and Mathematics, out of which 1,396 were male and 1,542 were female candidates, representing 47.52 per cent and 52.48 per cent respectively.

"Two thousand one hundred and ninety-five (2,195) candidates, representing 30.11per cent, obtained credits and above in a minimum of five subjects, including English Language and Mathematics," he added.

Areghan said that the results of 599 candidates, representing 8.22 per cent of the total number of candidates that sat the examination, were being withheld.

  No fewer than 2, 000 inmates at the headquarters of the Nigerian Correctional Service (NCS), Owerri, Imo State were set free by unknown gunmen on Monday morning.

The gunmen also attacked the nearby office of the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) of the state police command, also freeing suspects there.

 the gunmen operated in over 10 vehicles, and also attacked soldiers stationed at Umuorji along Owerri–Onitsha Expressway.

The attackers were said to have had a free rein during the operation that lasted about two hours and said to have started between 1 am and 2 am on Monday. 
 The gunmen caused panic in the town as explosions were heard around the state police command headquarters and the NCC facility in Owerri.

“There was a jailbreak at the Owerri Correctional Centre around 4am after the gunmen struck. Soldiers have been called in to secure the facility but several inmates have fled,” a source reported.

This is the fifth attack on police headquarters across the state.

We Shall Assassinate Ortom Our Only Mission is To Get You Down—Fulani Militia Group Tells Ortom, Southern Nigerian Governors

We Shall Assassinate Ortom Our Only Mission is To Get You Down—Fulani Militia Group Tells Ortom, Southern Nigerian Governors

A Fulani group with the name, Fulani National Movement (FUNAM), has said it was responsible for the attack on the convoy of Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State on Saturday.



The governor said, “You know today is Saturday and is normal as a farmer, I usually go to my farm, so I went to my farm along Gboko road and on our way back.

“We started hearing some gunshots and we discovered people who were dressed in black and from experience we now discovered that these are Fulani militias and I do not want to take things for granted because a few days ago the media were awash with a statement from MACBAN who met in Yola, the same place they met in 2016 where they decided that they will take Nigeria and that every other person is a slave that was when they started infiltrating the entire country.”

While reacting to the attack, FUNAM in a statement signed by Umar Amir Shehu, said the assault was plotted to kill Ortom who he described as a pagan that used his resources to destruct Fulani tenets.

The Fulani group also disclosed that it only had a slight setback in executing the assassination, hence Ortom was not dead by now.

“Our attention has been drawn to media reports today speculating about who attacked the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom.

“Yes. Yes, we did. The Fulani Nationality Movement (FUNAM) carried out the attack. We have genuine reasons. We acted on behalf of millions of Fulani people in 15 countries

Our courageous fighters carried out this historic attack to send a great message to Ortom and his collaborators: Where-ever you are, once you are against Fulani long-term interest, we shall get you down. This is a clear warning. We hope those who take us for granted will get the indisputable message.”

The militia group also boasted that it would soon accomplish its task of killing Ortom and other governors in the southern part of Nigeria that was against the Fulani settlement also known as rural grazing area (RUGA).

“Our intention is unequivocal: TO KILL HIM. That mission will one day be fulfilled and very soon too.

“We state clearly, any state or individual that opposes RUGA will be confronted. Any state or individual that opposes ranching, we shall get you. Speak against ranching and RUGA even on the internet: Our noiseless fighters shall find and fix you.

“In the next few months, FUNAM will carry out attacks on strategic human and material assets of states and non-state groups or individuals known for their anti-Fulani campaigns.

Gunmen Kill Military Officer In Anambra One Week To Wedding

Gunmen Kill Military Officer In Anambra One Week To Wedding

 Anambra State has recently become notorious for killing uniformed personnel such as the police and the military, by suspected ethnic militias and allegedly by operatives of the Eastern Security Network.

The Nigerian Navy has not officially reacted to Yusuf’s killing, but it was learnt that some arrests had been made in connection with the incident.



A source in Onitsha familiar with the incident noted that the activities of the gunmen needed to be urgently curtailed.  

He said, “Yusuf was posted to Onitsha in Anambra State amidst all the unrest in that region. He was preparing to tie the knot next week with his betrothed but his life was cut short by gunmen who waylaid him in Onitsha.

The late Yusuf hailed from Unguwan Sarki area of Biu LGA in Borno State. There is tension as the military could embark on raids and reprisal arrests and torture and even killing. The situation in Onitsha is palpable because the military is going to strike back. The activities of the rampaging gunmen need to be curtailed.

“Killing someone just a week before his wedding is indeed very agonising and condemnable. This is a moment of great agony for the relatives, friends and family of the deceased. May his soul rest in perfect peace.”

"If any police attack us for that, we are ready for them. We don't want Nigeria again, but Yoruba nation. There is no essence for one Nigeria when major resources in the country are in the hands of the northerners."

APC Have Failed To Deliver Campaign Promises To Nigerians—Governor Fayemi

APC Have Failed To Deliver Campaign Promises To Nigerians—Governor Fayemi

Fayemi said though some of the issues in the country predated Buhari's government, elected officials should take responsibility for not delivering on campaign promises to Nigerians.

"I'm not going to shy away from the expectations people had before we came to office. I was a leading player in the campaign that brought my principal ( Buhari) to power," Fayemi told Channels TV.

"We promised Nigerians quite a number of things, particularly centering on security, anti-corruption, and on economic growth. Have we been able to attain all of what we promised? Obviously not."

Buhari promised to tackle insecurity, fight corruption and pursue economic development. However, the Nigerian economy has slipped into recession twice on his watch in the last six years, while banditry and school kidnapping have become commonplace.


Despite the humongous budgets given to the military, the insurgency has festered, leading to abductions of schoolgirls in Dapchi, Yobe State, in 2018, among other abductions of women and children, which continue to draw national and global outrage.

APC commentators have for the most times remained quiet in the face of the growing insecurity which is presently manifesting in more deadly dimensions such as banditry, kidnapping and killings by herders.

How El-Rufai Cooked Lies That Oritsejafor And I Are Boko Haram Sponsors – Goodluck Jonathan

How El-Rufai Cooked Lies That Oritsejafor And I Are Boko Haram Sponsors – Goodluck Jonathan

 Former President Goodluck Jonathan has stated that the All Progressive Congress in 2014 embarked on propaganda to mislead Nigerians, including claims that his government supported the Boko Haram terrorists to reduce the number of northern voters.


Jonathan noted that Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, particularly in August 2014, accused him and the then President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, of being Boko Haram sponsors “to spoil Islam’s name.”

Years after the accusation and a campaign to "change" the country, insecurity has worsened under the APC-led government's watch. El-Rufai and other governors are struggling to tackle insecurity in the northern region.

Jonathan said El-Rufai’s claims were both “laughable and extremely ridiculous” but his (Jonathan’s) government was determined not to pull anyone down.

The former President stated this in his book, "My Transition Hours", explaining that his government was consistently attacked and maligned to ensure the propaganda succeeded.

Muhammadu Buhari was in my home state and I proactively ensured that nothing of that sort happened. He was not the president and it would have been easy to return the dubious compliment. There was no shortage of courageous young men ready to carry out such a mission. We could also have denied complicity as they did, but it was not my way.

“Besides not being so base by nature, I would have reduced an office I held in trust and embarrassed my colleague and many others around the world who hold me to certain standards and values. I encouraged my supporters not to dwell on the issue. When I accepted the PDP nomination for re-elections, I had charged myself and my supporters to campaign in peace with hope in our hearts, on the facts and truth on issues and ideas, on our records of performance, not violence. Ours was a campaign of ideas

A particular opposition politician, Nasir El-Rufai, who became the Governor of Kaduna State, went to the ridiculous extent of tweeting on August 9, 2014, that the then President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, and I were sponsors of the Boko Haram. He added that Boko Haram members were not Muslims but Christians disguised as Muslims to spoil Islam’s good name.

“Of course, it was laughable and extremely ridiculous. On the same day, at the Portcullis House in Parliament, London, El-Rufai repeated the same allegations at an event.”

Since May 2015, when President Muhammadu Buhari came into office, the Boko Haram killings has more than doubled in the country, leaving thousands of Nigerian soldiers as casualties.

There have also been more abductions and killings of women and children in the North-East as soft targets.

We had gotten report that the immediate past service  chiefs, who held the military command under Buhari for about six years, spent more than N2.659trillion on military arms and ammunition between 2015 and 2019, according to records.  

The N2.659trillion is outside the controversial $1billion Excess Crude Account Fund, which Buhari approved in April 2018 despite public outcry.

Despite the humongous budgets given to the military, the insurgency has festered, leading to abductions of schoolgirls in Dapchi, Yobe State, in 2018, among other abductions of women and children, which continue to draw national and global outrage.

Jonathan’s critic, El-Rufai, and other APC commentators have for the most times remained quiet in the face of the growing insecurity which is presently manifesting in more deadly dimensions such as banditry, kidnapping and killings by herdsmen

Arewa Youths Give Yoruba Indigenes 72 Hours To Leave Northern Region Over Sunday Ighoho's Statement

Arewa Youths Give Yoruba Indigenes 72 Hours To Leave Northern Region Over Sunday Ighoho's Statement

northern group, Arewa Youth Assembly, has given Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, 72 hours to move Yoruba people from the north

Mohammed Salihu Danlami, Speaker, Arewa Youth Assembly, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.


We are hereby giving him the ultimatum of 72 hours to move his people out or we will be forced to take necessary actions by personally taking the responsibility of getting his people back home," the statement quoted the group to have said.

The group noted that Nigeria's entity is non-negotiable and called on all stakeholders in the country to reject anything that would confuse the land.

The statement partly reads, "One Mr. Sunday Igboho issued a press statement in which he was quoted as saying enough is enough; that the time for Yoruba nation is now, that they will no longer accommodate and accept the presence of Northerners.

"The constitution of the country has made it crystal clear that any Nigerian can live in any part of the country, irrespective of his or her religious and tribal placements."

The group said that it still affirms its position as a law-abiding civil youth organisation, adding that it would not fold its arm and watch innocent Nigerians being threatened by individuals who have no regard and respect for the law.

Igboho had in a statement on Wednesday said the time had come for the actualisation of the Yoruba Nation.

He said that there is no basis for 'one Nigeria' as insecurity spreads to the southwest region, adding that the only solution is for the Yoruba nation to stand on its own.

"Starting from now, we don't want herdsmen in our land to disturb our farms again. If we meet any killer herdsmen, we are going to face and destroy them.

"If any police attack us for that, we are ready for them. We don't want Nigeria again, but Yoruba nation. There is no essence for one Nigeria when major resources in the country are in the hands of the northerners.

"Enough is enough, no going back… we are not scared of anybody; these killer herders are taking over our land and they are killing us," he added.


2019 Election: We Have Evidence Atiku Defeated Buhari In 2019—Bauchi Governor

2019 Election: We Have Evidence Atiku Defeated Buhari In 2019—Bauchi Governor


Governor Bala Mohammed

Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has said the Peoples Democratic Party won the 2019 presidential election.

While Buhari ran under the All Progressives Congress, Atiku was the PDP candidate.

 

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared APC the winner of the election.

 

Although Atiku and his party challenged the election's outcome from the tribunal up to the Supreme Court, they could not upturn the victory of Buhari.

 

Speaking when he featured on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme, on Thursday, Mohammed alleged that fraud on the part of either INEC or security operatives cost his party the election.

 

He said Nigerians knew what transpired during the 2019 elections, adding that his party has learnt its lessons.

 

He said, "The general impression within the party and the country is that we won the election and that we lost to a lot of fraud, to a lot of manipulations that were perpetrated by either the electoral umpire or by the security operatives."

 

"We do not want to be the whipping boys; we have looked inward to see what prevented us from winning the election. We have a lot of evidence, which we tendered but was not accepted. The issue now is that we know we are all Nigerians. We know the nook and cranny of Nigeria. We know what happened in 2019.

 

"We are not only looking at the other side and playing the blame game that is the fault of this present administration. We are also critical with ourselves, where we have some gaps, loopholes and inadequacies.

 

"We are not only looking at the other side, but we are also looking at ourselves, looking at our internal politics, and giving a level playing field for the youths and women who are a majority in terms of demographics and in terms of interest
