Senate suspends confirmation of Osinbajo’s nominees indefinitely Despite his Request

Published

on

The Nigerian Senate has suspended the confirmation of all nominees from the executive. The Senate’s decision was sequel to a letter to the upper chamber seeking the confirmation of Lanre Gbajabiamila, as the director-general, National Lottery Regulatory Commission (NLRC).
The lawmakers, however, dismissed Osinbajo’s request over the failure of the executive to obey certain decisions of the Senate.

The
Senate further urged the Acting President to withdraw his earlier
statement that the Senate does not have the powers to confirm
nominations by the executive.

Speaking at plenary on Tuesday, July 4, 2017, Senator Issa Misau described Osinbajo’s letter as a case of double standard.
“I see this letter by the Acting President as a case of double standard,” Missau said.
“How can Osinbajo say that we do not have the power to confirm nominations yet they are sending us name to people to confirm?
“When
the executive have interest in someone, they would keep him without
confirmation. They are some people in this country that the executive
would prefer not to send their names for confirmation. I think it is
high time that we the Senate stand our ground and say ‘no’ to some of
these things,”
he added.

In his contribution, Senator Dino Melaye urged the Saraki to stop reading letters from the executive arm of government seeking Senate confirmation of any nominee.
“The
Senate confirmed some Resident Electoral Commissioners, the executive
swore in some, and rejected some. Now he is sending us name. That is an
insult and we cannot take it.
“Mr
President, let it not be heard that it was during your time that the
institution of the Senate lost its powers. I want to move a motion to
prevent you (Saraki) from reading any letter from the executive seeking
the confirmation of any nominee. It should become abominable,”
Melaye said.
Saraki urged the executive to obey the resolutions of the institution of the Senate.

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
