This photograph went viral Saturday. When you look at the faces in the photo, you would say, ” Why not”.
Pay attention; a drama with a complex, intricate plot is unfolding right before our recession-tainted eyes.
The revered justices whose homes were raided and invaded by the Department of State Services (DSS) are now singing like canaries.
Singing bribed glorious tunes, so sonorously that the sounds are transported into rivers, for the glory of the ministry.
ABUJA-The Rivers State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja, has slated Monday to decide whether it has the jurisdiction to hear and determine petitions challenging Governor Nyesom Wike’s election, outside Rivers state.
The Justice Pindiga-led panel adjourned for ruling after it heard a preliminary objection that was moved this morning by counsel to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Dr. Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN.
In its motion, INEC challenged the legality of the tribunal which it said ought to have in line with section 285(2) of the 1999 constitution, as amended, conducted its proceedings in Rivers state instead of Abuja.
It insisted that going by the aforementioned section of the constitution under which the tribunal was established, “a tribunal sitting in Abuja cannot qualify as a tribunal established in Rivers state”.
Besides, INEC contended that the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, lacked the powers to relocate the tribunal to Abuja when a state of emergency has not been declared in Rivers State.
“The reason ascribed to this anomaly is that there was pandemonium, chaos in Rivers State. My lords should take judicial notice that the Court of Appeal is currently sitting in that state, even the Federal High Court too. The seat of government is there and very functional.
“It is our contention that the only constitutionally exception to the provision of section 285(2), is in line with section 304 of the constitution dealing with the power of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria declaring a state of emergency in any state. There is no such declaration in Rivers State till date.
“The power vested on the President of the Court of Appeal is not such that enables her to override the provisions of the constitution”, INEC lawyer submitted.
Can someone please explain to me whats going on here before i pass my own comment as i just cant explain this
Pix in The Guardian shows Senate President David Mark addressing workers of the National Assembly who were on a peaceful protest about allowances not being paid. Among these workers are those that work in the accounts department that probably know what some distinguished senators take home both over and under the table.Since we do not know the amount for sure, could one senators’ total emolument be the total sum of allowances of those gathered here.Then we now have a classic case here of “Unnecessary begging!”(apologies Abami)
This is a picture of Akpabio in Canada during an official visit to see the Prime Minister.why would he wear dark glasses inside the building?Is he there as a security officer,or does he have apollo? Isn’t this against protocol?I am sure the Canadians might be hesitant doing business with someone who looks like a hit man,but then they just might,especially if he is ordering another of his favourite toys,an executive van or jet?
WE thank FEMI ADEJUMO for sending us this photograph a reflection of the level of hustle and degenerate behavior of Nigerian politicians
