Professor Yemi Osinbajo

A civil society organisation,
Office of the Citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (OCFRN) has
commended the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, for suspending the
on-going promotion exercise in the Nigerian Police Force (NPF).

OCFRN’s convener, Mr Pelumi Olajengbesi, who
briefed newsmen on Thursday in Abuja, said that the action had shown
that the Federal Government was responsive and responsible.
Olajengbesi,
under the auspices of United Global Resolve for Peace (UGRFP), had
recently called on Osinbajo to intervene in alleged one-sided promotion
exercise in the Nigerian Police Force .
He said the group petitioned the Acting President, Inspector-General of Police and Police Service Commission (PSC) over allegations of ethnicity, nepotism and favouritism in the promotion exercise.
The
legal practitioner, who is also the executive secretary of UGRFP, had
alleged that no fewer than 72 aggrieved policemen had lodged complaints
with the group over denial of their promotions.
The Spokesperson for the PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, however said the commission had not released the names of the successful candidates.
He said that the complainants should have waited for the list before accusing the PSC of injustice.
“Recently
we petitioned the Acting President, Inspector-General of Police and the
Police Service Commission on the on-going promotion in the Nigerian
Police Force.
“There were
alleged irregularities in the process of the promotion; we want to
commend the Acting President for displaying a high sense of
responsibility.
“We are glad to receive the decision of the Acting President suspending the Police Service Commission promotion.
“This
is a demonstration of the fact that this administration will stand
against any act that is corrupt; that this administration is concerned
about the welfare of all Nigerians,’’
Olajengbesi said.
He
urged the leadership of the Nigerian Police Force to eschew favouritism
from the process and ensure that it complied with the relevant rules
and regulations.

Olajengbesi
also called on the Police Service Commission to ensure compliance with
extant rules with regards to promotion in the Nigerian Police Force
According
to him, the concept of OCFRN is the belief that every Nigerian citizen
by default and by the constitution occupies a very important office.
He
said that the initiative was in pursuit of OCFRN’s mandate as civil
rights activists and social crusaders, giving voice and vision to the
voice of the genuine emancipation of the Nigerian people.

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
