President lauds Benin Kingdom for stabilising Nigeria
President Muhammadu Buhari on
Thursday expressed delight with the stabilising roles that the Eweka
Dynasty of Benin Kingdom had been playing in the affairs of the country. Malam Garba Shehu, the
President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, in a
statement in Abuja, said Buhari stated this when he received the Oba of
Benin, His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II at the State House.

According
to the president, Nigerians have reasons to be proud of the stabilising
roles Benin chiefs played right from the colonial era to the current
period, not only in the Delta region but the entire country.
He singled out the role of the immediate past Oba of Benin, Oba Erediauwa I, whom he described as his “back bone of support”.
In
the late 1970’s when Buhari was a Federal Commissioner of Petroleum
Resources, the late Oba was a Federal Permanent Secretary.
“I cannot hold back my emotions, talking about my relationship with your predecessor.
“After
General Murtala Mohammed was assassinated, I was moved from the
North-East as governor to Ministry of Petroleum. Your father was then
Permanent Secretary.
“My relationship with him was very strong. I have lost count of the number of visits to his palace as Oba,” he said.
Buhari praised the late Oba for “stabilising
that part of the country because of his firmness. I must also commend
the immediate past governor, Adams Oshiomhole for stabilising Edo
State.”
The President commended
Ewuare II for following the footsteps of his predecessor while
reiterating his support for the traditional institution.
“I
know and respect the traditional institution. I try as much as possible
to understand why the authors of our Constitution kept silent about
their role,”
he said.
He, however, noted that this was probably the best way to preserve their neutrality.
He said: “Your Royal Majesty, you are safe where you are.’’

In his remarks, Oba Ewuare II, who commended the President for his handling of security matters in the country, urged the Federal Government to establish industries in the rural areas to curb unemployment, rural-urban migration and human trafficking.

Oba Ewuare’s delegation was made up of chiefs from other parts of Edo, including the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Oba Ewuare’s visit to Abuja and the Presidential Villa was the first after his coronation in October 2016.

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
