“Asks youths to avoid anything that threatens Nigeria’s unity” – Yakubu Gowon

 Yakubu Gowon

Former Head of State, Gen.
Yakubu Gowon, on Wednesday, advised Nigerian youths to avoid anything
that threatened the sovereignty and unity of the country. Gowon gave the advice at a National Security Seminar on “Unity in Diversity: Security and National Development”, organised by the Department of State Service (DSS) in Abuja.

He also urged the youths not to allow a situation where Nigerians would fight one another.
“You are the future of this country. In all that you do, ensure that we build the country in the interest of all.
“Ensure that you do better than what we have done for you. This is my plea to you,’’ he told youths.
On
the calls for restructuring or secession by different groups and
sections in the country, Gowon advised the agitators to be mindful of
the rights of others.
He condemned
situations where certain individuals and interest groups hide under the
freedom of speech and association guaranteed in the 1999 Constitution to
cause threat to the unity and sovereignty of the country.
“My view and call is that all Nigerians should like their country, right or wrong, but yet demand a change for good and better’’
On his part, the Director-General of DSS, Mr Lawal Daura, advised
all groups and individuals bent on pursuing their divisive and
separatist activities that threaten national security, to have a
rethink.
Daura said that security and law
enforcement agencies would not sit by while separatist elements
continued with their activities that put at risk the lives and
properties of law-abiding and innocent Nigerians.
“We
will deploy the full amalgam of the security infrastructure to deal
with subsisting and emerging developments capable of endangering lives
and properties as well as our corporate existence as a nation.
“Globally, the security agencies form the core of institutions that give backbone to statehood.
“Consequently,
every activity that represents an existential threat to the nation is a
direct challenge to the security agencies which must be responded to.
“The security sector views the unity of this nation as a sacred trust and this task we will do our utmost to meet,” he said.

Daura
said that the seminar presented an opportunity to explore diverse
perspectives on national challenges with a view to gaining deeper
insights and understanding of same.
“It is hoped that we will identify our strengths and amplify them while evolving viable options to cure our weaknesses,’’ he said.

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
