President Buhari condoles with Bauchi govt over ex-Deputy Governor’s death

Published

President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has
commiserated with the family, government and people of Bauchi State over
the death of the former Deputy Governor of the State, Alhaji Garba
Gadi, The President, in a condolence message issued in Abuja on Monday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, also condoled with members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

He stated that with the death of Gadi, Nigeria had been robbed of one of its “finest men of principle and integrity who set an enviable standard worthy of emulation.’’
He noted that, “despite the negative perception of politicians, there are still honourable men such as Alhaji Garba Gadi.”
President
Buhari maintained that loyalty was one of Gadi’s greatest quality,
adding that the deceased was impeached because he rejected opportunism
for the sake of principle, a quality, he said, was “uncommon among our
politicians.
The President said he held Gadi in the highest esteem for standing by his principles, in spite of the risks in doing so.
He, therefore, prayed to Allah to forgive the sins of the late Deputy Governor.
It would be recalled that Late Gadi contested the 2007 governorship election with Alhaji Isa Yuguda (former governor of Bauchi state) on the platform of All Nigerian Peoples Party (ANPP), to defeat candidates of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He
was however impeached from office by the Bauchi State House of Assembly
on August 13, 2009 based on the recommendation of the report of the
seven-man panel constituted by the assembly.
It
was widely believed that Gadi was impeached following his refusal to
follow Yuguda and members of the State House of Assembly to defect to
PDP from the ANPP on whose platform they were elected into office.
A judgment of the High Court presided over by Justice Haruna Tsammamia
in June 2010, however, ordered that Gadi should be reinstated into
office and all allowances due to him from the time he was removed as
Deputy Governor be paid to him.
Tsammamia also ordered Babayo Gamawa,
the former Speaker of Bauchi State House of Assembly who presided over
the removal of Gadi from office and subsequently elevated to the office
of Deputy Governor to vacate the office.

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
