‘So Resignation Exist In Nigeria’, Reactions As Buhari Orders Emefiele, Other Appointees To Resign Over Political Ambition



…Urge President To Replace Malami With Keyamo, Amaechi With Saraki As Ministers

Reactions have trailed the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari that all heads of agencies, departments, parastatals and ambassadors with political ambitions should vacate their offices.

Recall that the President made this known in a circular on Thursday signed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.

The circular with reference number SGF/OP/ I/S.3/XII/ 173 was titled, ‘Ministers, heads of government agencies, ambassadors and other appointees with political ambitions to resign.

The President in a circular on Thursday also directed the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, to resign.

Mustapha stated that the heads of agencies and other appointees are to resign on or before Monday, April 16.

However, some Nigerians have taken to social media to react to the reports that the CBN Governor and other appointees have been asked to vacate their offices.

In the same vein, Buhari has been urged to replace the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami with Festus Keyamo, and Rotimi Amaechi with Gbemisola Saraki as the Minister of Transportation.

Some Nigerians noted that Keyamo was better positioned to replace Malami as the country’s chief law officer.

See some of the reactions below.

@Oritzjaja: “Keyamo would be a natural replacement for Malami being somebody that is knowledgable about the law, looking at his past antecedents.”

@Lanbano: “I pick Keyamo to replace Malami that has really tried to destroy Nigeria’s judiciary system. Keyamo would be a better replacement.”

@Ejirooghene: “I think I would subscribe to Keyamo replacing Malami; that man has done more harm than good to the judiciary system in this country.”

Tinubu Reading January Newspaper In October, This Photo Is A Disappointment – Omokri



Nigerian socio-political activist, Reno Omokri, has taken to the microblogging platform, Twitter, to mock the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congres (APC), Bola Tinubu, over a viral photo showing him reading a January 2022 newspaper in October 2022.

Recall that Tinubu had posted a photo of himself earlier on the bird app reading a newspaper.

Tinubu’s photo which is perceived to be an attempt by the presidential hopeful to dispel rumours about his health status has since generated a barrage of reactions on social media.

Joining the host of others in making a mockery of the presidential candidate, Omokri on Thursday afternoon wrote: “This story was published on January 23, 2022. First an old video of your riding an exercise bike. Now, an old photo of your reading ab outdated newspaper? Bola, you should definitely fire the propagandist handling your Twitter account.”

2023: No State Or Community Will Be Left Behind If I’m Elected President, Peter Obi Assures Nigerians



Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has promised that no state or community will be left behind in moving Nigeria forward.

He noted that if elected, his administration will tweak the security architecture, which will entail reform of security and governance. “We will restructure, re-equip and reorient the Nigerian Police: This will include 3 levels of policing- federal, state, and community,” he said.

Peter Obi disclosed this in his speech at Harvard University.

Obi said he will ensure that in moving Nigeria forward, no state or community will be left behind. Pursuant to its statutory responsibility to protect, our government will promote equity in power and resource sharing.

“The federating units will enjoy discernible autonomy. Resources will also be shared equitably. A higher derivation paid to oil or solid minerals-producing states will not be tantamount to other states not receiving federal allocations that should keep them viable.

“We will tweak the security architecture, which will entail reform of the security sector and governance. We will restructure, re-equip and reorient the Nigerian Police: This will include 3 levels of policing- federal, state, and community.

“We will build a compact, robust and ready mobile police force with rapid response deployment capabilities; and legislate the establishment of state police based on community policing. We will raise the population-to-police officer ratio to a higher level” he added.

On Nigeria’s role in Africa and insecurity, he added that we must think seriously about a leadership that is imbued with competence, capacity, credibility, and commitment. Accordingly, we will pursue intangible assets of good governance, rule of law, and the security of lives and properties.

He added his administration will ensure that they have these assets in place and stress asset optimization.

“We will strike a strategic balance that allows us to promote and protect national interest while meeting our ECOWAS obligations.

“We will rebuild Nigeria’s military power, promote economic growth, and enhance its technological prowess with a view to improving Nigeria’s diplomatic influence in sub-regional, regional and global affairs.

He added that restoring leadership will require that we reassert proactively, Nigeria’s leadership role in African affairs through constructive engagement, peacekeeping duties, and using existing sub-regional and regional forums as well as bilateral platforms for dialogue on current and emerging challenges. We will continue to enhance our sphere of influence via peacekeeping, and trade and investment initiatives.
