World Photo Of the Day!

Isn’t it sad how so many people hate or dislike this man, I wonder if any of them really have a good reason. He is surely no worse than any of our warmongering American, British or Australian leaders. When did he last attack and destroy another country? Never. His only crime is protecting his country and his people who love him because of this.

South Africa Closes Consulate In Nigeria

The South African Consul General in Nigeria, Sam Monaisa, has announced that the South African Consulate in Nigeria will close operations until Thursday.

The decision was made in response to a combination of threats from social media and anti-xenophobia protests by Nigerians.

Monaisa wrote that, although the situation in South Africa was calming down, he still had concerns about Nigerians especially those being repatriated from South Africa.

He said that Nigerians on social media were blowing things out of proportion and that the situation in Durban was calming down.

He also warned South Africans living abroad to be cautious as South African businesses and citizens have become threats in retaliation of the xenophobic attacks.

In Mozambique, Sasol Ltd., a Johannesburg based company has announced that it will be repatriating their South African employees in the country as a precaution.

Fake praise singers like Kashamu no longer in vogue - The Jagaban

The national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has rejected the commendations given on him by Ogun-East senator-elect, Buruji Kashamu.

Kashamu, who is the Chairman of the Organization and Mobilization Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South-West, had a week ago, portrayed Tinubu as his good example and the modeler of present day Nigeria. On the other hand, Tinubu, in an announcement by his media counsel, Mr. Sunday Dare, portrayed Kashamu as an actor. The previous legislative leader of Lagos State said there was no basis for comparison between himself and Kashamu, saying that he felt offended by the public statement tended to him by Kashamu.

He said,
“The days of false adulation are gone in Nigerian politics. Fake praise singers like Kashamu will find that their particular craft is no longer in vogue. During this election cycle, their practice has dramatically turned from the way things are to how things used to be.

“Politicians will no longer be able to change direction and loyalties as if they were changing clothes. Those in politics must know that responsibility and accountability shall now follow them. One can no longer walk both sides of the street at the same time. In case Kashamu has not noticed, the politics of principle defeated the politics of posturing.”

Tinubu said it was ironic that Kashamu could praise him after conspiring with other PDP leaders to produce and broadcast a hate documentary against him. He said Kashamu’s actions and lifestyle showed that President Goodluck Jonathan and the leader of the PDP in Lagos, Chief Bode George, were his true role models.

Tinubu said Kashamu, who was rude to elders like former President Olusegun Obsanjo could not be his political son

He said,

“Kashamu may be prodigal but he is no political son of Tinubu. Kashamu’s political lineage tracks to people like Bode George and President Jonathan. He should direct his encomiums to these men who are his true role models. They need his contrived affections more than Tinubu does.

“This same Kashamu rained insults on former President Olusegun Obasanjo in a vicious campaign of calumny. Kashamu’s party, the PDP, sponsored defamatory documentaries full of lies and innuendos against me, General Muhammadu Buhari and other leaders of the APC.”

Tinubu urged Kashamu to turn himself to the United States’ authorities over the accusations of drug smuggling levelled against him, adding that only then would he believe that he was a reformed person. The former governor said as a person of repute, he could not be seen to be hobnobbing with people of questionable character as this would affect his reputation across the world.

“Please keep your peace until you make your trip to the USA as a senator-elect. Upon your return we can then have a conversation. We can then proceed with your repudiation of the PDP with a promise that you will stop corrupting and fouling the political system.

“I am a patriotic, law abiding Nigerian and my achievements make me world-renowned. I am a global citizen that travels freely to the USA, the United Kingdom and other nations. I associate with individuals who seek democracy and good governance for all. I do not spend time with characters whose values are at variance with societal expectations and laws governing a decent society.”

APC planning to use tribunals to steal our little victories, PDP cries out

The Peoples Democratic Party has said the All Progressives Congress is planning to use the various election petition tribunals across the states to take away the victories recorded by the party.

The APC defeated the PDP in the. March 28 presidential election. The party also defeated the PDP in a number of states, especially the north and south western states in the April 11 governorship elections.

Rising from a meeting of the National Working Committee and governor and Senators-elect under its platform in Abuja on Tuesday, the PDP warned that the APC is “planning to use the tribunals and ‘salamic’ arrangements to truncate and subvert the freely given mandate by the people in the states and constituencies”.

The outcome of the meeting, which was contained in a communiqué read by George Sekibo, a Senator-elect from Rivers state, also said the meeting vehemently frowns at the “shameless undemocratic ways and means being displayed by the outgoing APC lawmakers in Ekiti state towards effecting an unconstitutional change in government”.

The meeting equally expressed deep concerns at what it said was the plans by the APC to make the Nigeria a one-party state using crude and underhand undemocratic practice and thus reverse the gains of the PDP-led administration.

They also asked the Independent National Electoral Commission to be forthright and impartial in the handling of the various elections pending in Abia, Imo and Taraba states.

The meeting also commended President Goodluck Jonathan for his statesmanly disposition towards the sustenance of democracy and peace in the country.

The PDP said it frowned at the “unprecedented level of intimidation, harassment and undue persecution of the party members since the INEC declaration of the APC candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari”.

It also congratulated all the winners on the platform of the PDP in the elections and urge them to discharge their duties and form a formidable opposition that can redirect the fortunes of the country and sustain the gains of the present democratic era led by President Jonathan.

“The meeting stressed the importance of unity, peace and harmony in the party for effectiveness in its new role and warned that it will not condone agents of APC working as fifth columnists to destabilize the leadership of the party,” the communiqué said.

More Repercussions From US/European Militarism

Over the weekend, a ship filled with migrants capsized off the coast of Libya. Hundreds of people, fleeing from the Middle East and Africa were reported to be on this ship and have perished.

Libya…….That country rings a bell, right?

Didn’t the U.S. and its European vassals turn that place into a living hell when they intervened and got rid of Gaddafi? That was followed by the blowback in Benghazi, and a country with militias fighting one another for power.

Also over the weekend (in Libya) ISIS released a video showing the execution of 30 Christians.

Is it any wonder that scores of innocent people would want to leave this hell, and are willing to risk their lives on a smuggler’s boat with the hope that they might live?

Oh what a disaster these American/European military interventions produce.

Yet check out how those who had a hand in creating this mess want to deal with it (my emphasis):

 In Italy’s Parliament, the leaders of foreign affairs and defense commissions pushed for the EU and the UN to prepare a naval blockade of Libya’s coast. Without one, “the traffickers will continue to operate and make money and the wretched will continue to die,” said Pier Fernando Casini, the Senate foreign affairs commission president.

Prepare a naval blockade of Libya? That’s basically telling those who are fleeing for their lives: “Sorry, we’re locking you in. Don’t even think about putting your life in danger at sea. We’re going to make sure that you have to dodge bullets instead.”

Also, look how this Italian politician tries to blame the smugglers, who “make money” by trying to smuggle people to safety. He wants to make sure that this life-saving service no longer “operates”.

These migrants are running for their lives because of US/European government actions. This is a government-created problem. It’s a military interventionist problem. It’s a problem of not minding your own business.

Leave it to a politician to brush that aside as if it never happened.
