We Must Do Everything To End Insecurity, Buhari Tells NASS

Published

on

President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated his administration’s resolve to tackling all forms of insecurity in the country, vowing to deploy all resources to making the West African nation safe from threats.

The Nigerian leader spoke on Tuesday when he hosted members of the National Assembly to a dinner at the State House Conference Centre in Abuja.

‘‘In the circumstances, we must do everything within our power, without consideration of distractions, to put an end to their activities and bring them to book,” Buhari told the lawmakers while admitting that many people take to crime due to diverse reasons including promotion of some “discredited” ideologies.

‘‘We cannot allow ourselves to be distracted from this objective, or waver in our commitment, and I am confident that together we will triumph in our present efforts.’’

Buhari, who described the National Assembly as ‘‘full partners in national development,” hailed them for building and maintaining a seamless relationship with his administration.

‘‘The obligation to check and balance each other is not an invitation to conflict, and it should not be characterised by quarrelsome disagreement when consultation, engagements and compromise have proven time and again to be a more effective approach,” the 78-year-old was quoted as saying in a statement issued by his media aide, Femi Adesina.

‘‘In the 9th Assembly, you have distinguished yourselves by your conduct in office, by the scale and quality of your legislative interventions, and by your capacity for engaging with the difficult questions facing the country with maturity and competence.”

He lauded them for the passage of some bills including the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB), saying they have “succeeded in overcoming the political and other obstacles that have, for two decades, inhibited the much-needed reforms of our Oil and Gas industry, resulting now in the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB).”

President Buhari admitted that the present administration came into power when the country was facing several issues across board, explaining that resolving these challenges requires hard work from the government.

This, Buhari believes, is the only way to reposition the country.

‘‘This moment in history requires us to make hard choices, take difficult decisions and act with diligence and patriotism to ensure that our country can survive and thrive long after we have all left,” said the Nigerian leader who took over power in 2015.

‘‘What this means in effect is that our jobs will not get any easier. However, the objectives we seek and will work together to achieve, deserve our best efforts regardless of the sacrifice.”

…He’s a Complete Flirt, Angel Insists

Big Brother Naija Shine Ya Eye housemate, Saksay, has revealed that Emmanuel asked her for a kiss during the last Saturday Night Party.

Saskay revealed this while discussing with Cross and Angel on Thursday, day 54 of the show, after Emmanuel and Liquorose received rewards from Biggie.

Big Brother rewarded Liquorose and Emmanuel with 250 Abeg Naira and 200 BB tokens each, as Liquorose successfully carried out her secret task.

Liquorose and Emmanuel were also rewarded with an exclusive two-hour dinner date in the Executive lounge.

Discussing the wins, Angel noted that despite Liquorose’s prank, she still believed that Emmanuel is a flirt.

Earlier in her Diary Session, Angel has stated that she was happy that Liquorose and Emmanuel were having a ‘fight‘.

When it was revealed that the ‘fight’ was a prank, Angel still insisted that Emmanuel was not being genuine to Liquorose.

Corroborating her claims, Saskay stated that Emmanuel also asked her for a kiss during the Friday party.

Saskay said, “We were dancing and next thing, he (Emmanuel) was like, ‘can I kiss you?’ I told him, ‘If you want to chop slap, go ahead’.”

She also added that she feels that Emmanuel’s nature is to joke around and Angel agreed to it.

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has disclosed why he joined the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The former minister had officially defected to the ruling party on Thursday.

His defection was disclosed at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, when he was presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by the acting National Chairman of APC.

However, the former minister explained that he joined a forward-thinking and accommodating party.

Speaking with Channels Television, Fani-Kayode, insisted that he joined APC to maintain national unity.

Asked if he joined for financial gain, he said: “I find that very insulting whether it is coming from you or my critics, I am not the first person that would decamp to the APC, have you asked others this same question?

“If you ask all politicians this question, you will get the same answer; nobody knows tomorrow. I have my values and I will continue to work towards that.”

Controversial Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Gumi, has slammed former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode over his defection to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Fani-Kayode, who had been a great critic of the Buhari-led administration, joined APC on Thursday after he was received by the President at the State House, Abuja.

Gumi, reacting, shared a throwback statement by Fani-Kayode in 2018 saying he would rather die than join the APC or bow to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Gumi said he had long neglected the rantings of Fani-Kayode, knowing fully well that he is a traitor and fake.

He described the former minister as a Yoruba Judas and a traitor.

His post on Facebook read, “I have for long neglected the rantings of the Judas of Oduduwa attacking me knowing fully well that he is fake and a traitor.

“Time has now caught up with him and thanks to Allah, all his vituperations are cast in the dustbin of merciless history.

“It’s him now one wonders which of the seven circles of hell this duper will settle if he doesn’t repent.”
