How Jonathan disgraced Suleiman Abba, leaving Police IG working hours after sack

IGP Suleiman Abba

President Goodluck Jonathan deliberately humiliated Police Inspector General, Suleiman Abba, out of office Tuesday, delivering his decision by Twitter without an advanced communication, and leaving Mr. Abba, one of Nigeria’s most criticised police chiefs, at work several hours after his dismissal, PREMIUM TIMES can authoritatively report.

By 11.23p.m. Tuesday, more than 10 hours after his removal was announced via the internet, Mr. Abba was yet to receive any brief or correspondence from the president or his representatives informing him of his removal, this paper can confirm.

A statement following the Twitter message, signed by presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati, named Solomon Arase, a former Deputy Inspector General, as Mr. Abba’s replacement.

Mr. Arase, ironically, was Mr. Abba’s superior by years of service, having joined the force in 1981 while the ousted IG enlisted three years later.

But details of Mr. Abba’s sack, pieced together Tuesday, left no doubt the former police boss who courted controversies for most of his nine-month tenure, was deliberately disgraced out of office.

Associates of Mr. Abba told PREMIUM TIMES of a man embittered by the rude treatment, who wondered what his sins were after serving the government and the nation.

A presidency release, on Twitter and as emailed statement to newsrooms, offered little information about the dismissal beyond details of the replacement and the immediacy of the succession.

The statement, signed by Mr. Abati, said Police IG Abba was standing down “with immediate effect”.

Yet, several hours after the announcement, Mr. Abba received no communication or brief from either the president or any senior administration official, and remained at his desk. He told associates who called to inquire that he was unaware of his sack, several sources told PREMIUM TIMES.

The first tweet announcing the sack was sent by Mr. Abati at 1.24p.m, followed by another at 1.47p.m. on Tuesday. Mr. Abati issued a statement at 1.46p.m, where he named Mr. Arase as the new IG. The statement gave no reason for Mr. Abba’s removal.

When contacted by a friend at about 3p.m., Mr. Abba said he had not been informed of any sack and that he was at work.

As of 11. 23 p.m., shortly before midnight, he repeated the claim.

Election Casualty

Mr. Abba became the first casualty of an administration winding down in about five weeks after an election defeat.

Officials at the presidency and the police told PREMIUM TIMES it was clear the former police chief was punished for his role in the just concluded elections.

While the police faced several allegations of bias from the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress during the polls, our sources said the PDP was more disenchanted with Mr. Abba’s failure, or refusal, to provide sufficient police support to its candidates, including President Jonathan, to win the elections.

“I can confirm that the relationship between the President and the IGP went cold after the election,” an administration official, asking that his identity be protected, said. “The government felt the IG failed to do enough to help the president to victory.”

The officials pointed at police deployments ahead of the polls, particularly in troubled spots like Rivers State.

PREMIUM TIMES had reported exclusively how an angry President Jonathan reversed Mr. Abba’s deployment of Assistant Inspector General of Police Tunde Ogunsakin to Rivers State ahead of the April 11 governorship election.

The presidency, infuriated that the move was designed to curtail the PDP’s capacity to win the election, ordered Mr. Ogunsakin out of the state immediately.

Beyond its public outbursts against the police, PREMIUM TIMES understands the PDP, at private meetings, accused Mr. Abba of not doing enough to help the party despite receiving huge funding. The PDP said Mr. Abba’s policies deliberately favoured the APC, instead.

The concern about funding followed a secret arrangement by the National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, in which all of the nation’s security units were directed to submit budgets and proposals of how they could help Mr. Jonathan and the PDP win the polls.

All security services including the police filed their proposals and received adequate funding. But the PDP, our sources said, believed the police contributions and deployments during the polls did not reflect the funding and guarantees given by Mr. Abba.

American connection

Yet, if Mr. Abba’s loyalty to the president seemed doubtful particularly after Mr. Jonathan lost the election, a meeting between the police chief and the American Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle, on Monday, less than 24 hours before the sack, drove that concern to its zenith, our sources said.

At the force headquarters where the American envoy visited, an elated Mr. Abba sat with other senior police officers as Mr. Entwistle extolled the police for its conduct during the elections.

Ambassador Entwistle thanked Mr. Abba and the police for “a wonderful job” and for delivering superbly on a “staggering assignment” of stemming violence during the heated polls.

“I just came to thank everyone who was responsible for the incredibly historic, peaceful elections in Nigeria,” the envoy said, highlighting how the success reflected months of cooperation with Mr. Abba ahead of the polls.

While commending the civil society and the media for helping in keeping violence low, the ambassador said the police did a great job. “I just came over to say thank you,” he said.

He praised police coordination in matching polling units with its personnel, a process that undoubtedly stretched the force’s manpower.

For a force accustomed to criticisms for its many wrongdoings, and struggling with an image problem that escalated as the nation moved closer to elections, the messages appeared heart-warming.

Associates said Mr. Abba had hoped the remarks would burnish his credentials for a possible tenure extension by the incoming Buhari government, more so, given his own iniquities in the run-up to the polls. Notably, Mr. Abba authorised a police assault on the National Assembly November 2014, and unilaterally declared (without a court pronouncement) the sack of speaker Aminu Tambuwal of the House of Representatives, for defecting from the PDP.

Thrilled by the ambassador’s remarks, the police took to Twitter, YouTube and its website tweeting several messages and describing the comments as “an impressive commendation from the Government of the United States of America”.

Mr. Abba later told the ambassador commendations for the polls should not only go to the leadership of the police, but to personnel on the field and at the polling units.

He said the police’s election strategy started 2013, and that its implementation commenced shortly after he took over as IGP in July 2014.

Overall, Mr. Abba said the success was anchored on a clear directive to police officers to be “civil, nonpartisan and not-biased” while on election duties.

Those three words, officials said, catalysed the presidency’s action hours later.

Mr. Abba himself confirmed to close associates Tuesday that he had been told by several persons close to President Jonathan, how the presidency interpreted those words, his associates told PREMIUM TIMES.

For the president and the PDP, the comments smacked of arrogance, and confirmed suspicion that he did not work for the party even after being funded.

“It is unbelievable that the IG could dare to publicly announce how personnel were instructed not to be partisan or biased despite the promise he made to the presidency and the resources he was given,” an administration official said.

Throughout Tuesday and early Wednesday, the Nigeria Police’s Twitter account stayed quiet, ignoring rather strangely, the removal of its chief, Inspector General Suleiman Abba.

The usually lively handle tweeted no information about the sack, in sharp contrast with Monday when it flaunted the ambassador’s praise.

Associates of the ousted IGP say he was most concerned that his removal has put paid to his second project for the police, after elections.

Mr. Abba, they said, planned to launch a sweeping campaign for attitudinal change of an average police officer, a project that was due to start in weeks.

The sacked police chief’s associates are now advising him to, in the interest of his safety, travel out of the country to rest “until the present madness ends”.

    the madness of our country.

  • tundemash

    We knew all these all along even when some mor0ns were claiming Dumbo shold be made a Pope for conceeding an election he got defeated. There would be ore casualities as Dumbo is determined not to go down alone. Dumbo’s quick acceptance of defeat was also to spite the PDP who failed woefully everywhere Dumbo spread is “dollarised” message.
    But I am certain, there would be earth-shattering revealtions once the psycopath Dumbo and his band of rogues depart Aso rock May 29th.
    Stay tuned ……

    • Guguru


      I have been saying the same thing too. Well said. Jonathan’s vindictiveness knows no bounds, and he will take it out on the PDP and everyone who may have cause him to lose the election. Jonathan is determined to get his pound of flesh back.

      • eddy

        He should continue… the can of worms are beginning to open up. We all have front role sits… with my popcorn in hand. Exciting times ahead.

        • Guguru


          LOL. Very true. Don’t forget your 16 ounce cup of soda too.

      • Wähala

        You… “Jonathan is determined to get his pound of flesh back.”
        Dumbo should equally be determined to donate his pound of flesh back to all the people he offended especially his, “motor park tout” Baba Iyabo; the “lion of budillon” Bola Tinubu and his political nemesis, Gen. Buhari, whom he commissioned TV propaganda of lies in a vicious campaign of calumny during the elections. Remember a beaming Dumbo at his last rally by Ministers in his corrupt cabinet? Speaker after speaker derided the person of Buhari to cheers and smiles of PDP bigwigs. So, carving a pound of suya from Suleiman’s back portion is not the end of vindictive politics o bros, dem too must be ready to bend over and donate nyash… a lot can be garnered from Doyin Okupe, for instance!

        • dd

          You call GEJ Dumbo, I can’t call GMB dry face illiterate right?

          • Wähala

            What is the title of Dumbo’s PhD thesis?
            DiarisGodu oo! #WiarisGworzaSef?? Your idea of education is contaminated by environmental degradation down yonder. You should be grateful to Nigerians for putting a stop to the disgrace you marketed as the most educated Nigerian president. Well, not this time. Nigerians have woken up… Go-Siddon!

          • chris Gabriel

            It is baffling when people insult others that they can never match in their life time.

        • Guguru


          LOL, “…a lot can be garnered from Doyin Okupe…” Very true.

          But I think Jona is mad that money he could have looted and stored in a Swiss bank account were handed to people who did nothing with it. In essence, he is probably mad that other people re-looted his original loot. LOL.

      • chris Gabriel

        Do you really know what it means to be vindictive?

        • Guguru

          Yes, I do.

    he madness will soon end if the present regime is gone.

  • Wähala

    “It is unbelievable that the IG could dareto publicly announce how personnel were instructed not to be partisan or biased despite the promise he made to the presidency and the resources he was given,” – Presidency

    The IGP was fired for instructing the police to do their jobs without partisan sentiments and bias. So, Sambo funded security to “help the president and the PDP win the elections” ba? Nigeria is one country where people are punished for doing the right thing. Methinks, Suleiman Abba deserved the kick he took in the ass for allowing himself to be made Dumbo’s lap dog. He was fired for: a) Not deploying Ogunsakin in time after agreeing to do so to allow Hippopatience rig the elections in Rivers State. In fact, it took a phone call directly from Dumbo to order Abba to send Ogunsakin out of Portharcout on the morning of the elections after Mama Piss got really pissed-off with Jona for ignoring the effrontery of the IGP. b) Abba was suspected of leaking the subsequent order that sent Ogunsakin packing and seething with anger. The only other person in the meeting with Dumbo was his SA, Domestic Affairs, Dudafa. Dem say, even Dumbo was shocked to read about the directive in online news services. c) Abba was present at the INEC presentation of certificate of return to Buhari. A jealous Dumbo’s presidency saw it as “warming up” to Buhari and pandering for his retention as IGP. These are the main reasons Abba bit the dust besides failing to help in heist of the general elections by making “strategic transfers” that would have helped the ruling party rig-win the contest. An action hailed by James Einwistle when he visited Abba and his men at police HQ on Monday. Dumbo is an evil man whose deceit has obviously not deceived too many Nigerians… Clown!

    • Bayo Ola

      Nice analysis. If I may add to yours: Jonathan fails to realise that the best option open to him is to embrace peace and leave the stage in peace. If he thinks he can disgrace Abba because he works for the interest of Nigeria in the election by passing out out PDP clandestine moves to the American Ambassador, I have a word for Jonathan. Dumbo, Jonathan should know that even as a sitting president of Nigeria, he does not have the political or economic clout to confront the United States political strategies. If he tries to rubbish the Americans, they will certainly get back at him on June 1, 2015. I will not be suprised if Patience Jonathan is cooling off somewhere in Kirikiri at this time of next year. Jonathan is not only a mumun, but sorround himself by mumun. He should have just let a slleping dog and let Buhari deal with Abba, who is not popular with Nigerians. Now, he has made hero out of a presume villain.

      • Guguru


        Very nice. Your understanding of the situation is very deep. Too bad that Jonathan does not have the capacity to understand what you have written. Thanks.

      • Wähala

        He thumbed his nose at the Americans especially when he expelled their military advisers on Boko Haram, that added to his flagrant accusation of the Americans of leaking info to SA authorities who impounded Ayo Oletsejafor’s money-laundering jet plane. Maybe not at the ICC but certainly, I see Dumbo chained to the dingy floors of a prison cell before all this is over. Too many crimes against the persons of Tinubu, Buhari ati Baba Iyabo not to get struck by at least one of their vindictive bullets. Mama Piss Dumbo, case closed…
        long jail term!

      • dd

        Some of you leave your brain in the walldrope and start using nose to think. You think USA can do that rubbish? Maybe you want to wake the sleeping lions in the creek.

        • Bayo Ola

          We are going to be happy to wake the sleeping lion in the creek. You will soon know it is not about the size of the lion but the size of the fight in the lion. You have been babysat for too long by the generousity of the whole Nigerians. You bloody barbarians mistook the affection and understanding of your plight in the Niger Delta for a weakness on the part of other Nigerians. Your Asari even threathend the rest of Nigeria certain consequences if we failed to vote for Jonathan. A threat and not a persuasion to vote certain way in Democrazy!! Are you kidding me? Now the gloves are off the hands.Bring it on. You have a choice: live peacefully and enjoy your loots from Jonathan. Or, forfeit it all including your lives. You cannot defeat the will of the good people of Nigeria and their allies. A word enough for a wise!!

          • dd

            In three months time, I will come back and reply you. Hope you will be online. You be small pikin!!!

          • Bayo Ola

            Okay old pikin. We await you. You will know the will of the America government in alliance with a new Nigeria, is beyond what Niger Delta millitants can break. Try our will. Wait for the outcome; hope you will be alive to provide a feedback about the outcome in a few months, if you are a party to the creek antics. Better dust your houseboy file and re apply to you last master preceding Jonathan wasteful years. That is the only career that suits most of you. You are not wired to be dignified, nor could lead a multi ethnic nation. In short, you lack leadership attributes: Compare Jega’s reaction to Orubebe action. You will respect fulani and innate leadership attributes. Although it sounds condecsending to others, “Born to rule” statement by the Fulani resonates more having tried Jonathan. Mind you, Babangida, Abacha and Abdulsalam are not Fulanis. Check out the profile of other Fulanis that ruled Nigeria. They are not cowards, and they are not corrupt. So you have a game. Bring it on. In fact, we have the power and political will to relocate you all from that creek to a new location. How many are you? Less than two million people, yet want to fight with 148 million others? Even if you have the military might of Israel, you are in for a game by numbers

          • dd

            The problem of Yariba is that they talk more than action. You are already telling me who will help you when I start smashing your head against the rock. See how petty you are? In three months time, we wait for you to relocate us. Three months time will define what APC really want. By then we understand if they have respect for bread winner, then you understand that same Israel you mentioned – although is a tiny nation, but no massive arab nation can stand them. Three months time I will reply you. It is stuupid to talk too much without action. Action first then talk follows

          • Bayo Ola

            I’m a Yoruba and not Yariba man. I do not intend to engage you intellectually as you seem intellectually weak for such semantics we might be inclined to discuss. Besides, judging from your thought flow, you are not my type. I’m not your type, too. Asari Dokubo is your type. Align with him. You threatened Nigeria with war in a few months. As a patriotic Nigerian and a global citizen, I responded to your shenanigans. I did not utter a threat to you, but responded to your threats by asking you to do some reality check before you self destruct. The choice is yours. It might interest you to remember tha Yorubas are highly sophisticated and educated people. Our ways of doing things might appear to dullard as cowardice, but strategic to smart people. We need not rush to war to kill innocent people, except the other alternatives of winning war without firing a shot, have been exploited. When Abiola’s election was annulled, we did not rush to war yet got what we wanted without firing a bullet. There are more than one way to skin a cat. If going to war with Nigeria is your wish in the creek, I REPEAT and emphasis is deliberate, that you will not live to enjoy your “oyil” money. Did you get that? Alternatively, you can embrace peace and respect other then live peacefully among us after this pestilence Jonathan years are over. Can someone say it to you in your native language, please?

      Nice analysis.

    • dd

      Abba deserve to be hanged. He was partisan. Even when police called him from the north that underage kids were voting he did nothing about it. He simply was systematically rigging the election for APC. Let stop all these praise of Abba.

      • Bayo Ola

        If there are underage votings in the north what about over voting in Delta state and in Rivers and Akwa Ibo states. The only part of Nigeria where there seem to be a reflection of the will of the people is in the South West of Nigeria. You can see the results of elections in the South West are more believable in anormal democrazy. So, you need to remove the log in your eyes,by recognizing the monumental rigging in the SS and SE, before you can pick the one in the eyes of the northerners–underage voting

      • chris Gabriel

        No the praise is normal. In Nigeria today, the easiest way to earn praises is to insult or work against GEJ. But it is a good thing because the freedom to abuse those in power will never be taken away again. There’s never going to be decree 4 again.

    • Tunsj

      As usual, I believe you hit it right on the head again.

      • Wähala


  • Bayo Ola

    President Buhari first task is to strenghten Nigeria institutions so the occupant of the Presidency, including Buhari himself, will be unable to influence their operations for personal or party advantages. This will secure the future, not only for Buhari, but his adversaries. A strong Police, Judiciary, Army, DSS, Customs, etc., is in the interest of everyone. We can learn from the Jonathan experience and self correct in the interest of everyone. This charade, such as the Jonathanian charade, must not, I repeat, must never, be allowed in our territory again.

    Mr Abba go on holiday and rest, when you come back your job could be waiting for you.
    For those criticising IGP Abba (myself included) I have just realised that may be his actions from the past was always be the one in charge to help unseat PDP. if he had stopped doing PDP and GEJ’s bidding from the onset he wouldn’t have lasted 2 months!
    So maybe this was always the plan, act like he is with them not knowing he was against them

    • King Carlos

      Thats anoda angu oo… chai ..u get sense

    • eddy

      U may be right there…

      My take is, I guess after he goofed with the assault on the national assembly he must have had a rethink about his actions and decided to go down the right path not minding who is affected.

  • MIKO

    All this every day award to Jega and Abba is now beyond suspicion to being true that something grievous went wrong during the election. The meddlesome attitude of American and British governments in the election is becoming embarrassing. To the nose pokers, the election was free and fair but to us Nigerians rigging was across board. The nose pokers’ game plan is yet to be fully revealed. Lets be careful less Nigeria will disappear with a BANG and it turn out to be THERE WAS A COUNTRY.

        LOL. How do you define spiritual wickedness? Have you experienced spiritual wickedness before? How does it feel? You suddenly know what is good or bad for my existence? How are you able to do this? What God and what kingdom are you referring to? I was not attacking any personalities. I was merely providing a requisite and helpful description of their character and personality. When has doing so become a sin? Deizani is not a technorat. She is a criminal that needs to be brought to justice ASAP. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala is a pedestrian academic, luck to have worked at the World Bank, and who fashions herself as an expert when in fact, all she does is exhibit the finest in intellectual quackery.

        It was so obvious reading the article. Jonathan appears on track to destroy his legacy of concession to Buhari by willfully failing to control his propensity for vindictiveness.

    • Omoba1

      A president who concedes prepares his house and not mourn over failure. Jonathan did not concede, he lost woefully and had no choice but to accept that he was outplayed and all his strategies failed.

      • Guguru

        Well said.

      • Bridgebuilder

        Did anyone truly believe Jona conceded all by himself? Seriously? I submit he wasn’t capable of taking such a momentous and clearheaded decision all by himself. It just doesn’t tally with his DNA!!.

      • chris Gabriel

        woefully? what is the meaning?

  • dd

    He was sacked for double standing. Promising GEJ in the day and running to Buhari in the night. Every northerner did what he did. Like Jega did the same thing slightly different – he told the public he will be neutral but told Buhari at night not to worry. Jega is able to manage his emotion of GMB biased victory but Abba is not able to manage is emotional tsunami hence the uncontrollable behaviour. He deserve the sack.

    • Danbaba

      Mr. dd
      Why do you think he was being partial towards the North, you remember when he withdrew the Speakers security detail? Aminu Tambuwal is from the North
      Also now Jega was pro-Buhari what happened in 2011? GEJ won remember. So you think Jega rigged the election for GEJ in 2011 and now for GMB in 2015.
      Why do we in Nigeria always reduce everything to tribe and religion?

      • 007iwo

      BUHARI’S ELECTION VICTORY [now showing on hope for nigeria

      Buhari’s Election Victory in Kano, Katsina, Jigawa, Kebbi, Kaduna and Bauchi exposed to Nigerians.
      He promised to punish electoral offenders, but it is now certain that his election was the most fraudulent election in the History of Nigeria aided by Prof Jega and his scams called Card Reader and PVC.
      It is a shame!!!

    Has anyone heard of whether Governor Akpabio, the professional houseboy, still shuttles to Aso Rock since after Jonathan’s loss, to help continue to confuse and deceive Jonathan? I know Okupe, the village id!ot, is still defiant and in denial about reality. I hear Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, the consumate sycophant, has run away to Washington DC and is now an adviser-at-large to Buhari, and Deizani is still unsure when she might begin her prison term for untold and unmitigated corruption, and I hear she is even unsure if she can ever talk to Jonathan again who might probably slap her if she ever comes close to him again in this life. Where are these goons these days?

    Irony, like life can be funny sometimes. The choices that a person makes as they got thru life, eventually makes up that person’s life experiences. i have not been too fond of Mr Suleiman Abba, since Nov. 20th 2014, whose events shall be part of IGP’s Abba legacy, just as the fine/professional conduct of the NPF during the recently concluded elections will also be part of his legacy as IGP. for me personally I would have liked to see if the IGP could have successfully implemented part 2 of his reforms for the NPF. Again this outgoing government has opened a small window into the vindictive, petulant, and selfishly small mind that is President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GFCON. The historians will ask how such a creature got to be President of the greatest black nation on earth. Books will be written, scholarly works will be done, for it is a mighty blemish on our sacred honor.

      Are u hearing for the first time Nigerian being appointed on air and fired on National TV—–Abba is as guilty as the word guilty itself—–when u commit an offence————–most especially for the Apes in APC–there is always a prize for it——-I said it right from the very day he appointed an ijaw AIGP to be in charge of dogs in the Police I knew Jonathan was in trouble—–from Dasuki to David mark tambuwal all worked against the president–because of his tribal marks as an ijaw man—-he Jonathan saw himself as a Nigerians——little did he realise that those from the old region of the country—–saw him as a useless drunken sailor fisherman—That is why he foolishly built roads an schools for the fulani north and left the SS dry and openniless————–he left nothing for his ijaw people until the USA fired him for buhari—————————–separation is the answer

      • QDouglas

        If south south separate now. You will still come back to square one. Can you tell us all Jonathan’s achievement to develop the south south as president of Nigeria. By now south south should be paradise place in Nigeria. You have Tompolo, Asari etc. With their millions of money they did nothing progressively in the south south. So please stop talking, just sit down and think deeply before you say anything more. You are behaving like child!

  • burning spear

    @WAHALA AKA GUGURU—why don’t u confine your regional thoughts—-to the matter at hand—–? The question which is begging for answers is that why is it that the American Ambassador- is behaving as if he is the elected president of Nigeria? Can’t the so-called Soyinka–Falana and Sagay who sold themselves to the CIA via their regional pronouncements ask the Ambassador to stop meddling in the affairs of the Nation—Just hours after Jega announced Buhari as the president-elect the Ambassador honored Jega with an Award from Obama————This is the first time since our flag independence that an American president—-is honoring the Chairman of INEC—–Where were they when after the murder of Abiola—obj was installed as president by the Fulanis——————-The outgoing IGP–used police officers to project zones where elections were rigged for APC in the South-west—All the pictures of under-aged kids—-voting in the Fulani North were taken by the police——and posted on the Web–to the chagrin of the president—-while the American CIA operatives- and their counter parts worked round the clock to doctor figures for the Apes in APC—————

      burning spear,

      How many inches are remaining on that your croooked spear that has nearly burnt to ashes? LOL. Wahala and I are two different people. I guess you either missed the memo detailing our differences or someone in your office shredded the memo before you got back to the clinic this afternoon, right? LOL.

      So, tell us how you arrived at the conclusion that anyone sold themselves to the CIA? And what criteria did you use to make a determination of the US Ambassador’s purported behavior? Americans have honored Nigeria in many ways in the past, even if those facts elude your capacity to recognize them. So honoring the INEC Chairman for conducting a most challenging task whose potential failure had the capacity to ruin Nigeria, I think, is worthy of all the congratulatory paraphernalia and honor available. So, America acted as rationally as any sane entity should. Do you understand sanity and do you value being honored?

      OBj installed by the Fulanis? Under-aged kids? Did any of these kids rush their birth certificates to your door step on March 28th, 2015 in order for you make a determination of their age? You actually witnessed the police taking these pictures? On what wall were you a fly taking these pictures that no one else has seen? You actually saw CIA punching their work cards as they worked round the clock?

      LOL. My good friend, take your medicine this morning. Do you need me to remind you take your medicine every four hours? The flashes of inconsistency and fairy tales i have read from your write up today should concern everyone because we value you and love you. We know all you said was out of your control. So, we forgive you for stumbling upon a computer without adequate supervision this morning. My brother, we love you.

      • Bayo Ola

        Good one. Say it louder. They are bunch of millitants ignoramus. They should tell their principal to go to court with his facts of underage voting in the north or forever keep his peace. They should not forget over voting in Rivers, Bayelsa, Delta, Akwa Ibom and most SE states. Showing a picture of a child from Bayelsa state, dressed in Hausa Fulani attire to decieve the uncritical, does not fly with inteligent people. After all, same barbarians and militants in their zone made sure all the PVC card readers in their zones did not function so they could engage in manual voting and rig the elections. Bloody buffons

        • Guguru


          LOL. Very true.

    • 007iwo

      Go to court with ur uderage voting claim. This Abba guy worked for PDP right from when he was appioonted IG nobody complained. PDP lost the election they looking whom to blame. Nobody is taking about the national treasury GEJ, Rueben Abbati, Doyin Okupe etc have looted dry. Could that not be the reason they lost the election?

    • deetruuth

      Burning spear-DERI incarnated; underage voters in the North and disappearance and resurfacing of doctored result sheets in the South are a sad reminder that elections in Nigeria is a sham that still needs a lot of cleanup work by all that care about the country. Leave the western, eastern, northern and southern powers out of this. You can’t blame outsiders for Nigeria’s wows. You must look at yourself in the mirror and take stock of everything from the inside-out.

      A child that will not grow up will always be contended to be directed by hisher father. Nigeria simply refuse to grow up and therefore needs to be chastised by those who thinks they know better. You and everyone knows that vote do not count in Nigeria. The power that be simply collect result sheets, goes to their dungeons and fill out numbers to suit their interest, end of story. This time around, APC has been able to outsmart PDP, and that’s DEE TRUUTH.

    • Bunduma Mohammed

      I am sure you are still sick of your failure to win at all cost. Jonathan is the most clueless thoughtless and unreasonable President Nigeria has ever produced. I congratulate Abba for taking a new lease of life. American know how Jonathan evil support for Boko haram is doing to the country. Jonathan is evil. Buhari may review this useless action and bring Abba back for doing a good job of keeping police out of election rigging

    • Tonnero

      As usual, lots of words but ultimately pointless.

  • burning spear


    Buhari’s Election Victory in Kano, Katsina, Jigawa, Kebbi, Kaduna and Bauchi exposed to Nigerians.
    He promised to punish electoral offenders, but it is now certain that his election was the most fraudulent election in the History of Nigeria aided by Prof Jega and his scams called Card Reader and PVC.
    It is a shame!!!

    • Guguru

      burning spear,

      Is it not troubling to you that you happen to be the only one who can see whatever you claim to have exposed? My brother, are you melting down like Chernobyl? Even your spear is almost burnt to ashes. LOL.

    • End of South-South

      I pity you Melting arrow! GEJ should neither blame IG Abba nor those who cheated him for DOLLARS. The thing pass IG and DOLLAR power, it is Allha’s work who give the INEC the wisdom to use the “CARD READER”. With the use of CR, no more indiscriminate rigging in our elections. In 2011 GEJ scored 22 million vote while GMB got 12 million vote. Where come this unreasonable difference?

      • emmanuel

        End of south south?

        It is end of Jonathans presidency. The South South will soon speak on pumping Oil for export and Gas for power plants, then the Western World can come to your rescue.

        The SW can rely on VIO and LASTMA to generate revenue. Nor be people wen see money buy fuel go drive car?

        • Tonnero

          You keep failing with your predictions but you continue to make other predictions. Wetin dem dey call that one?

  • Ibrahim

  • sammyctu ode

    jonathan and pdp are not human beings but most evil people on earth. A president and a useless party who wants to stay in power at all cost despite very poor performance, a president who takes his personal agenda ahead of that of millions of Nigerians, a president who wants power at all cost and one who ruined everything for the country. IG Abba, don’t be ashamed God will reward you.

    • walejohnson

      Yes I am sure that God will look after Abba. He is young, educated, and has a brighter future than Jonathan. He should either go back to his village and rest, or go somewhere to relax while watching Jonathan how nature will be handling him. Jonathan will live a miserable life after retirement. HE WILL END UP SO, SO.

  • asking question

    Dear President Jonathan:

    But why remove the Inspector-General if you are running away, anyway,
    and not just running away, but throwing away the 1999 Constitution as
    you flee office without caring if your successor is a constitutionally valid
    candidate under the oath you took as president in May, 2011?

    Less and less people now have faith or trust in your ability to think
    You unravel everyday as impulsive, un-thinking, immoral and empty.

    If Nigerians prefer a primary six certificate holder to you, what you
    should do next is look into the mirror and you’ll see your problem.
    What will the army generals who stuck their necks out to disclose
    Buhari’s non-existent WASC certificate now think of you? What will
    anybody who’s stood out in your defence in the last five years think
    of you now, if there’s no single educated decision you took in office?

    • concernednigerian

      Have you finished?

  • Abdulazeez Oyibo

    Again, the clueless has unwittingly armed the opposition to deal with him ruthlessly.

  • MushinSpeaks

    Whoever said GEJ is a hero should be taken to LUTH for medical check up.

    • Tonnero

      There is not enough space in LUTH for the 98% of Igbo that think so.

  • emmanuel

    The USA used several institutions (including the police and Jega) to help Obama execute his Islamic and Gay agenda in Nigeria.

    One major reason why Nigeria never move forward, is that the West help most leaders come in through tainted means and thereafter blackmail them not to implement people friendly policies that may affect the USA economic gains from Nigeria.

    Buhari has fallen prey of the West already. Watch out!

    President Ebele Jonathan sacks the former IGP Suleiman Abba because,the former IGP failed to coordinate his regional police formations in Lagos-State,Ogun,State,Oyo State,Osun State,Kwara State and others to get the police to rig and manipulate the presidential poll for president Ebele Jonathan.That was the sin committed by the former IGP beside the former IGP served president Jonathan partisan and carried out some unconstitutional order for president Jonathan.
