Akintoye Accuses FG Of Hiring Foreigners To Stage Anti-Self Determination Protest In US

Published

on

Professor Banji Akintoye has accused the Nigerian Government of hiring some black foreigners living in the United States of America to stage a Pro-Buhari protest and One Nigeria March opposite the United Nations Headquarters in New York on Friday.

An unnamed top government officials from Kwara State and a popular journalist were accused of allegedly paying $500 to black foreigners to stage counter protest against Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS).

Recall that Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS), under the leadership of Prof Akintoye had staged a “Million-Man Freedom March” on 14th and 15th of September opposite the United Nations Headquarters.

The grand finale of the NINAS Million-Man Freedom March holds on Friday September 24, the day President Muhammad Buhari will be addressing the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly.

NINAS is the umbrella body for self-determination Groups in the South and Middle-Belt of Nigeria with Ilana Omo Oodua representing the Yoruba Land, Lower Niger Congress representing the South South and South East and Middle-Belt Renaissance Movement representing the Middle Belt Region.

The group has been describing the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria as a fraud against the people of South and Middle-Belt, saying,“it was enacted without the consent of the people”.

NINAS is also demanding from the United Nations to declare Miyetti Allah as a Terrorist Organisation, alleging that it has openly taken responsibility for series of genocide in the South and Middle-Belt regions.

Prof Akintoye in a statement made available to DAILY POST by NINAS’s Director of Public Communications, Maxwell Adeleye, said the will of the people shall prevail no matter how the Nigerian Government try to scuttle the Grand March.

He accused a top Nigerian government official and a popular Lagos journalist of currently hiring foreigners to masquerade as Pro-One Nigeria Protesters to counter NINAS in New York on Friday.

“The Friday Grand March in New York shall be historic, hence, the Nigerian government is jittery. The Ring Leader of Government Officials from Kwara State and a top Lagos Journalist are now in New York to start hiring black people who will pretend as Nigerians to stage a Pro-Buhari and One Nigeria Protest to counter NINAS on Friday.

“But we refuse to be rattled. We shall not be intimidated. No Oppressor has ever triumphed against the collective will of the people. The people are the government and power belongs to the people. The people make the constitution. The sovereignty belongs to the people. Our own strength lies in the hands of the people. Therefore, Our march shall be people’s centered. It shall be peaceful as usual,” he said.

Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo has ruled out international retirement.

The Portugal captain, 36, became the all-time top scorer in international football last month.

Ronaldo – who lifted the Euro trophy in 2016 – is hungry for more ahead of the 2022 World Cup held in Qatar in December next year.

Quizzed by Sky Sports on international retirement, he said: “But why? I think it’s not my time yet. It’s not what people want, it’s what I want.

“It’s when I feel that I’m not capable to run, to dribble, to shoot, if the power is gone… but I still have that stuff so I want to continue because I’m still motivated.

“It’s the main word – [motivated] to do my stuff, to make people happy and my family happy and the fans and myself. I want to put the level even higher.

“You speak about Portugal but in the Champions League I have the most goals, the most wins, assists… everything.

“But I want to carry on. I like to play football. I feel good to make people happy.”

Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is excited ahead of the El Clasico against Barcelona.

Real Madrid go to Barca on Sunday for the first El Clasico of the season.

Courtois said: “The Clasicos are one of the most watched games in the world. You feel when you go to play it, even before you are here. They are games that all the players watch.

“And we are happy that the fans are back in the stands. That gives a plus to a Clásico. It’s going to be a very intense game, with rivalry, clashes on the field …

“In the end it is going there to the death, to defend yours. Sometimes when heat arises in the game, there may be a clash, but always with the utmost respect, because we are professionals. But that is cool in these games, let there be a little fire.”

Asked if he’s happy Lionel Messi is no longer with Barca, Courtois added: “No, because we like to face him. It’s always cool when you can face the best. I remember a game the first year I arrived that he didn’t play and we lost 5-1. I don’t want to remember that, but that’s the way it is.

“Barça have quality, new young stars: Ansu Fati, Pedri … It’s going to be a great game because they have a lot of quality.”

Senator Afikuyomi Greets Mustapha On Turbaning As Turaki Of Ilorin

Published

on

The Royal Turbaning of Alhaji Saliu Mustapha as the Turaki of Ilorin by His Royal Highness, Alhaji (Dr) Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, CFR, is a worthy recognition of Alhaji Mustapha’s contribution to nation-building, according to Senator Tokunbo Afikuyomi, a long-term associate of the new Turaki.

Afikuyomi stressed in a statement that Alhaji Saliu Mustapha has been conscientious in politics, and painstaking in humanitarian services, not just around the people of Ilorin Emirate alone, but in the entire Kwara State and in Nigeria as a whole.

According to the Senator, who once represented both, Lagos Central Senatorial District, and Lagos West Senatorial District. Mustapha’s decent politics, maturity and candor have combined to portray him as a rare breed amongst the pack, which is why he is often welcomed in any circle he has pitched tent with.



“He has a great sense of fairness, comportment and is also result oriented. A loyal friend, with a god-fearing disposition, he passes as one of the most respectable public figures from Kwara State,” Afikuyomi added.

The senator summed that with his turbaning as the Turaki of Ilorin, he was confident that he will impact on the people of the peace-loving emirate, in line with the vision of His Royal Highness, and the expectations of citizens.

“May God almighty give him the wisdom, good health and longevity to deliver the much-needed goods for his people, his fans and for humanity at large. Congratulations to a good friend,” the Senator concluded.
