APC chairman John Oyegun condemns song insulting Igbos

Published

on

John Oyegun - The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the
All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, has described
perpetrators of hate speeches, images and songs in the country as worse
than Boko Haram insurgents. He said this
in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja while reacting to an audio clip
that had gone viral, especially in the Northern part of the country.

Odigie-Oyegun
described the development as “dangerous and despicable´´ and called on
security agencies to apprehend those behind the recording and other
similar acts, no matter who they were.
According
to him, every ethnic based crises begins with hate speeches, when
people within the same country frame and define one another in a manner
intended to set them up for violent attacks.
“The merchants of hate don’t know or just don’t care about the consequences of the fire they are stoking in the country.
“But they have the experiences of other countries to learn from, Rwanda remains a classic example on our continent.
“However,
even as terrible as Rwanda was, it would be nothing compared to what
could happen if a huge country like Nigeria is allowed to fall into the
disaster of hate-driven conflict,”
Odigie-Oyegun warned.
This, he said was why Nigerians must rise, regardless of political differences and condemn hate speeches with one voice.
He
observed that though ethnic distrust was not new in the country, the
rising wave of present hate speeches and ethnic utterances and actions,
was part of fallout of the 2015 presidential election.
“Anyone
participating in an election knows that there could only be two
outcomes, you win or you lose. When you lose, you prepare for the next
election.
“What we have seen,
however, is that since 2015, some politicians and political groups have
carried on as if they wish the country itself to collapse because they
are no longer in power,”
Odigie-Oyegun said.

He added that this was indeed tragic and called on the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to direct security agencies to ensure that those behind these odious acts were promptly arrested and brought to justice.
The
APC national chairman said that the country´s leadership should not
allow a few disgruntled individuals to destroy Nigeria’s democracy.

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.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. 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.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

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
@MBuhari
