Some Powerful Nothern elites wants Emir of Kano Sanusi Lamido to shut up (MUST READ)

Published

on

The Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has alleged that some prominent Northerners are trying to silence him. Sanusi said this at the Inaugural Annual Chibok Girls Lecture which was held in Abuja.
The
lecture was held in commemoration of the third anniversary of the
abduction of over 200 schoolgirls from Chibok Government Girls Secondary
School in Borno state by members of the Boko Haram sect.

The
monarch, who was represented by his daughter, Shahida Sanusisaid he
decided to stay away from the lecture because of the criticisms he got
from some Northerners following some comments he made.
Sanusi said “Our
colleagues and compatriots among the elite do not like statistics.
Numbers are disturbing. I recently gave a speech in which I said the
North-East and North-West of Nigeria are the poorest parts of the
country. This simple statement of fact has generated so much heat, the
noise has yet to die down.
 “The response
to this speech has been a barrage of personal attacks and insults aimed
at silencing any voices that dare shine the light on the society to
which we are saying Bring Back our Girls.
“There
are those who believe these attacks are aimed at discrediting me
personally but even if that is the objective, it will not work. I can
only be discredited by what I have done and not by insults and lies on
the social media. And in any event, personal criticism has no impact on
the issues.”
The Emir also urged the Bring
Back Our Girls (BBOG) group to broaden their campaign to also cover boys
that have been kidnapped by Boko Haram.
Sanusi also called on the group to use their platform to champion the cause of the Nigerian woman and girl child.
He said
“I would urge BBOG, while you keep this issue of Chibok on the table,
to broaden your message to cover all girls and boys abducted by Boko
Haram, and also draw attention to the condition of girls and women in
our society in general.
“To give you an
idea of the extent of this problem, as of today, in Dalori 2 IDP camp
near Maiduguri alone, there are over 1,500 BH-abducted girls who are
either pregnant or carrying babies, who have been freed by the military.
“Hundreds
of orphaned children are being carried away to unknown destinations and
they are all gone into oblivion due to society’s neglect. It is
therefore critical, for the BBOG to gain much broader support in the
populace and be more effective, to use the dramatic case of the Chibok
girls as a reference and a plank, but not the exclusive focus of its
struggle.”
The Emir, in some of his
statements, has outlined the challenges in the Northern part of Nigeria,
while also accusing the leaders of being backward.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
