    The catch is not the DCP’s but the ASPs and others, because the foolanis need more DPO’s to man all Police stations across the country. Especially where their tribesmen herders cause problem.
    Osinbade, please do well to reverse these promotions shortly

    “Buhari is not coming back.
    Buhari may not be dead, but he might as well be – too sick to rule, too greedy
    to leave. How can he have a broken body and a distracted mind and retain the
    strength and focus to lead Nigeria out of social, political, and economic turmoil?
    I speculate Buhari is suffering from either a kidney failure or pancreatic cancer,
    but even if Buhari comes back home, we all know his policies of the last two
    years have left the country almost completely stagnate.”

      Why was that Emir running to the presidential villa?

      Yeah, I thought as much. The other day I saw Sanusi Lamido Sanusi – the Emir of Kwankwanso, oh, sorry,
      Emir of Kano – rushing to the presidential villa two weeks ago, I suspected that Muhamadu Buhari is not
      coming back. Sanusi Lamido could not tell journalists what he came to beg Acting Vice President Yemi

      A lot of people concluded that Sanusi Lamido must therefore have come to the presidential villa in his own self-interest. Some other people said Sanusi Lamido feared that without Muhamadu Buhari who was helping
      him in the last 20 months to sweep the case under the carpet, his pending case of 1.4 trillion Naira missing
      at the Central Bank under his tenure might be brought to court as a criminal case of theft.

      The federal government audit shows that the missing money passed through his hands. If that is the case,
      Sanusi Lamido is not getting good legal advice. Theft or crime cannot be negotiated. Theft or crime has no
      time-limit for prosecution. No statute of limitations. It can be brought to court and prosecuted at any time.
      It is naive to expect that Acting President Yemi Osinbajo will intentionally overlook the case and end up
      disgracing himself, like Muhamadu Buhari. For what? To achieve what? Is Osinbajo a Hausa man too?
