Falana accuses Jonathan of violating Nigerian laws

Lagos Lawyer, Femi Falana

By using a soldier as his Aide-De-Camp, ADC, President Goodluck Jonathan is violating Nigerian lawyers, a lawyer has said.

Femi Falana, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, stated this on Saturday during a sit out organised by a pro-democracy group, Nigerians United for Democracy, at the Gani Fawehimi Park in Lagos.

The lawyer, who said Mr. Jonathan is breaching the constitution by several of his actions, also said the president was wrong by stating during a media chat that he could remove the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Attahiru Jega, from office.

He said even though the president nominated the Mr. Jega, his nomination and removal of the INEC chairman is subject to approval of the Senate.

“If the president wants to do so (remove the INEC chairman), he will go to the Senate with an address, itemizing why he is desirous to remove Jega,” he said. “And I can assure you, there are no cogent reasons, no compelling reasons to ask for Professor Jega’s removal.”

Mr. Falana urged the election chief to use the postponement of the election to put his house in order, adding that Mr. Jega’s office “is not under control of anybody including the president. Nobody, including the NSA or the service chief can remove Jega”.

While addressing the gathering on the president’s ADC, Mr. Falana said the president’s action violates Section 419 of the Police Act which states that the president shall have as his Aide De Camp a police offer not bellow the rank of a superintendent of police.

“We also want to join issues with the president who said in his presidential media chat that he is guarded by soldiers, and he is the only one in the country that is guarded by soldiers; if anybody attacks him those soldiers can kill and nothing will happen,” the activist said.

“We want to tell the President and Commander in Chief of Armed Forces that as far as the constitution is concerned, the president is not supposed to have soldiers in his convoy. The president is not supposed to have a soldier as Aide De Camp. Under Section 419 of the Police Act, the president shall have as his Aide De Camp a police officer not below the rank of a Superintendent of Police, not a soldier. So we are asking the president to comply with the Police Act by having as Aide De Camp a police officer.

“This is important for all of us. In the Second Republic, when we had the president then, Alhaji Shehu Shagari had a police officer as aide de camp for four years, today all the governors in Nigeria have police as their aide de camp. The president, when he was a vice president had a police officer as his aide de camp. It was because General Obasanjo who had a soldier attached to him as a retired general, that was why the man was taking a soldier all over the place. It is embarrassing that that is what our president is trying to copy. It’s a dangerous thing,” he said.

Mr. Falana also cautioned Joseph Mbu, the Assistant Inspector General of Police who was recently posted to Zone 2, on his actions and utterances.

“There is somebody in Lagos now who is harassing people, please, warn AIG Mbu. I understand he said if one policeman is killed, he will 50. Please let him be told that that threat, as far as our constitution is concerned, it is illegal. Please we do not want anybody to kill a policeman. A policeman is a human being like all of us, like Fela said, “uniform na cloth, na tailor dey sow am.”

“Please if any Nigerian is killed including a policeman, what the constitution requires is that we arrest those persons and prosecute them, nobody has the power to kill any other person in place of anybody who has been killed, therefore, Mr. Mbu should be warned,” Mr. Falana said.

Speaking on the purpose of the sit out, he said it was meant to send warning signals to “anti- democratic forces”.

“Today is the first outing of this new organization, United for Democracy. We are being told that today (Saturday) is the day of lovers, Valentine. Today is the day for love for democracy. What we are doing today is service of notice, we are warning the anti-democratic forces in our country”.

He warned that Nigerians would not accept any further postponement of the election.

“Any other postponement, we are going to fight, we are not going to accept any other postponement,” he said.

Mr. Falana also advised the National Security Adviser not to interfere with the affairs of INEC, stating that his portfolio is to advice the president. He said he stood by his earlier statement that the actions of NSA and the military chiefs that led to a postponement of the elections was tantamount to a coup.

“I got an information two days ago that they are threating to go to court. They cannot write to me, so far they have not written to me, but they have written to one newspaper to retract what I said, to apologize on my behalf. Let them be told, I have no apology to offer.

“As a matter of fact, I’m daring them to go to court, I will defend that newspaper free of charge, I will join issues with them. They haven’t seen nothing yet. I will come out with more earth-shaking revelations on the destruction of the constitution by these guys, what I said is just a tip of the iceberg, let them be warned therefore not to provoke the Nigerian people”.

He urged youth gathered at the park not to be used by political parties as electoral thugs.

“All their children are either abroad or in special schools In Nigeria. The children of any politician will not be used as thug, so why do you want to be used as thug?” Mr. Falana asked.

On the leaked recording revealing how the Ekiti gubernatorial election was rigged, the lawyer called for investigation and prosecution of those involved.

“The criminal manipulation of the Ekiti governorship election….all those indicted in the tape must be brought to book, they must all be prosecuted and another election must take place in Ekiti State.

“Let me inform you why the election was postponed last week. It was because of that revelation because that was the plan they had for the entire country so they now have to go back to the drawing board to plan their new strategy”.

Also speaking at the sit out, lawyer and activist, Jiti Ogunye, said it was disappointing that those in government now did not fight for the return of democracy.

“If you were part of the success that led to the arrival of civil rule in 1999, you can’t but be angry and terribly be disappointed,” he said.

  • Gbemiga

    Get out, my friend. You’ve lost credibility with your hypocrisy.
    As far as you are concerned Raji Fashola – your feeding bottle –
    does not, and has never violated any law or regulation ever!!!

    • Ola Majekodunmi

      Femi Falana: Where were you when this other criminal violation occurred?

      Between May 1999 and now, Lagos state government has earned $40 billion dollars
      as revenues but the money – less salary and running expenses – was partly shared
      between Bola Tinubu, and Raji Fashola under corporate guise in the worst scam ever
      in modern Yoruba history.

      In 2012, Lagos state floated a loan bond of ₦87.5 billion loan in November to borrow
      at 14.5% interest rate and got public investors to subscribe for repayment with interest
      but once the bond was fully subscribed, Raji Fashola took 40% of that money –
      about 35 billion Naira or so – and handed it over in cash to Bola Tinubu, via
      bogus corporate fronts, namely: (a) Lekki Concession Company, (b) ARM company,
      and, (c) Hitech company;
      in a bogus “buy-back deal” of a supposed concession right
      on the 15-kilometre Lekki Expressway.

      • Ola Majekodunmi

        Femi Falana: Where were you when this other criminal violation occurred?

        This patently corrupt deal was ostensibly to buy back Lagos state ‘concession rights’
        on the Lekki tolled Expressway, according to Raji Fashola. But what the corrupt and
        clever by half Raji Fashola did not say is that the land at issue belongs to Lagos state
        and was never sold to Bola Tinubu’s company in the first place.

        Or did Bola Tinubu’s companies invest 35 billion Naira developing the road.

        In other words, by sheer fraud, Raji Fashola paid Bola Tinubu 25 years profit upfront;
        without further work, A lien was then imposed on Lagos state allocation of federal revenue
        for the next 3 years to pay for this 80 billion Naira bond debt by all Lagos residents.

      • Ihatesycophant

        Go to court.

      • tundemash

        Must Falana do everything for you. Why don’t u take up this case too and run with it ??????

        • Airspace

          No, but Femi Falana must stop pretending. He is NOT a civil rights activist.
          He is instead fully in conspiracy with perjurers like Bola Tinubu and Buhari.

          • tundemash

            You expose Tinubu and co and leave Femi Falana to keep exposing the PDP rogues. Both ways, the masses gain except of you are one of the goats that eat yams of PDP !

  • Chiotu Nnamdi

    Long live democracy.

  • musa amina

    na waooo Jonathan administration gives room to everybody to talk as they like, i belt u mr. lawyer that if it was during OBJ’s regime u dare not open ur wide mouth to talk any how or is it during buhari’s regime only if u want to rout in jail, i don’t blame u. hypocrisy. #gej4naija #no2buhari

    • tundemash

      Dummy …. Nigerians fought for their freedom!
      The greatest opposition to OBJ were the Yorubas but you were in the bush then with Tompolo and Asari so you do not know wha was happening?
      Who were those who were on the street protesting the inhuman treatment of Dumbo Jo Turai ? Was Dumbo not hiding under the bed ?
      Stop dabbling into issues clearly beyond your reasoning and next time, try use a pseudonym that makes sense. An Hausa will not have a female name as second name Mr creek rat !

      • emmanuel

        Which Yoruba opposed Obj? Obj secretly empowered million of Yoruba guys through illegal Crude and petroleum patronage allocation for which monies meant for NNPC account were paid into private companies.

        A lot of my contemporaies Yoruba guys bought Oil bearing vessels and were stealing crude like pure water bag then.

        I beg nor bring Yoruba into this talk. Let Falana carry im fake cross alone.

        • tundemash

          Like i told your other creek rat, you were probably in the bush with terrorist Asari to know what was going on.
          You claimed OBJ secretly empowered million of Yoruba guys through illegal crude and yet you couldn’t name two of those millions !
          And yet you didn’t know Wole Soyinka, Falana, Tunde Bakare among others were on the street protesting Turai’s locking of Dumbo behind the doors. Name me just two Ijaws who protested this ?

          Cl0wn …. before that amnesty windfall that got you that laptop, we have been on SaharaReporters even during OBJ’s time protesting the looting of Nigeria by this PDP rogues currently represented by Dumbo. To your feeble mind, GEJ and OBJ are different but to sane and discerning mind, they both belong to same killer PDP group raping Nigeria since 1999!! I guess na GEJ you voted but not PDP .

          • emmanuel

            My contemporaries in Oil business during Obj time amount to amnesty? No wander Tinubu and Buhari are trying to set us behind. Even the guys they call sharp hrains manning their propagada machines do not have common sense.

            I will employ you and remunerate you very well, with. Laptop, I-note, a car for you so you can stop working for this your jankara media house.

            Bullshit amnesty.

            Even the South South people leave una to carry go the time when una dey steal crude, but now una nor want make the South South boys steal too, yet both Oba, chiefs and as little as primary school children dey steal petrol for Arepo, satelite town, Ejigbo etc.

            Mumucious.

          • tundemash

            An he-goat being fed with PDP yam wants to employ me ?
            ha ! ha!! ha!!! what a deluded f00l. Those who feed you with yams couldn’t even achieve that ! Not everyone is a Fani Kayode or Ofonagoro Mr. creek rat !
            Ask your e-rat fore-bearers Deri the Redeemer, Reno, akpso1, Oleku, Otile if that is possible. Those were the cl0wns on SaharaReporters, u were a nonentity!

          • emmanuel

            Mumu so you know that Akpos and co have all left your forum as a result of your media gagging? What is their use being here when PT refuses to publish their post? Wahala and co have migrated with them to carry out Liars assignment there.

            The game is to make readers believe that there are no dissenting voices to the lies peddled here.

            What a news medium managed by lame ducks whose news item are targeted negatives about the president alone. No single foreign, business related or even a celebration of achievements anywhere.

            Why not simply capture PT as a Journal founded for the pulling down of Nigeria FG and PDP – that will rather be very appealing to your readership.

            Tunde I know PDP will not bother engaging a liability like you to do media job for them.

            Majority of those who speak against your APC here are people who are well fed and defend Nigeria from intruders from Burdillon, not paid agents like you

          • tundemash

            We had Abacha goons on SaharaReporters then we kept telling us SaharaReporters would soon die off; guess what SR outlived them so shall PT and SR outlive you, PDP and Dumbo !

          • emmanuel

            If you talk Sahara Reporter, make I give you the name I used then.

            I decided to use my name long after, because wen person dey old he go dey sidon bath.

            We made SR popular and we walked out on them enmass when they began to sttiffle post from dissenting voices, by which time Sowore don dey shop from the devil. Same thing we did to 234 next when El-Rufai and cothink say dem smart pass all of us

            Ask SR what the readership and followership is today. I still receive their Newsletter daily. Mumu.

            Just watch this your pure water medium – PT after election when your pay master treasury dries up (when alfa Beta is buried)

          • Don Messi

            You are blessed for this…

          • tundemash

            And yet in al this rant , u still failed to mention the name u used ???? Keep jabbing the air !

      • Otile

        Say the truth. Who was on the street protesting during the evil regime of Imam Mohamed Buhari? Who was on the streets of Berlin protesting during Adolf Hitler’s terror regime? How many Zulu men were seen on the streets of Pretoria protesting during the apartheid regime?

        Say things as they are, don’t cover up for your master Imam Buhari.

        • tundemash

          Bipolar disorder at its extreme; you deserve pity for your affliction !

          • Otile

            Don’t change the subject. Did you find Imam’s genuine certificate?

          • emmanuel

            You know whem Tundemess get hit, when he changes discurse from real burning issues.

            He lacks character like Falana. Let Falana take the ADC case to court and go back to same court three months after, the man go don abandon the case!

          • Otile

            I know my friend Abubakar tundemash very well. He knows he is always wrong when he tries to defend APC. Once you pin him down to a corner he tries to change the topic and resort to name calling. His favorite passwords are: e-rat, clown, dummy, and dumbo.

            When he dusts up those words you know he has ran out of ideas.

          • emmanuel

            Same goes for the one stuck in Germany called Wahala.

            He don go sidon for Sahara Reporter as people not too know am there. He don dey boast say he be big man for Germany when he nor fit buy ticket come back home or even to support him Buhari broda for campaign. I beg we go raise funds for Wahala to come see Nigeria again after about three decades. Imagine person when take quota scholarship go abroad in the nineteen eighties, nor fit bring himslef back

          • Otile

            Of course all of them were sent to US and Europe on federal character scholarships. Even then, a good number of them did not get a degree, yet they will brag, boast their heads off, and insult anybody who does not support their corrupt party.

            Despite free education provided to the North and West, illiteracy is bliss especially in the North, yet they want to rule over educated people. Born to rule my foot.

          • Funso

            Otile ọmọ àlè.

            but the favourite and known pass word is that Otile na ọmọ àlè.

          • musa aliyu

            Only crasses like you that have plenty ‘bought certificates are left to continue wasting your time on this issue . Tell your oga, who bought a PhD that he is no match to the person you pass assertion to. He os not fit to be his cobbler!

          • Otile

            You don’t need to insult me to defend the evil practice of Buhari. Let him just show his genuine certificate as required by law. We are not talking about PhD or any degree here. How low can we water down qualification to accomodate him?

          • musa aliyu

            Which qualification? “Mr Water High?”

          • Otile

            The qualification is secondary school certificate which Buhari does not have. Ka ji ko?

          • Funso

            Ọmọ àlè ni ẹ.

          • Funso

            Ọmọ àlè.

          • tundemash

            Quote the law Otile Shekau !

            Even your looting masters have shifted gear agter letting he-goats like you loose ! Today is Feb,.15th, you are still talking about certificate, if not your jittery masters shifted the poll, we would be discussing President Buhari’s inauguration ow while you lament certificates.
            By the grace of God, u would still be here March 29th/30th lamenting certificate while we will be discussing President Buhari’s inauguration !

          • Funso

            but the genuine certification is that Otile ni ọmọ àlè.

          • tundemash

            Otile Shekau, drop the bottle and read this article again…. was the subject about certificate ?
            Your bipolar disorder is very acute indeed !

          • Funso

            but the unchanged genuine fact is that ọmọ àlè ni Otile.

        • Richard

          Go and ask Arogundade , who was the NANS president in 1984, and other students’ leaders. I was a student at UniLorin. It is obvious that you guys don’t know history of struggles in Nigeria and that is why you were questioning the struggles Falana was involved in .

          • Otile

            Imam Buhari did not care what people did in the North, he was after people in Eko and those from east of the Niger. We know history, Falana was almost nobody during the evil regime of Mohamed Buhari.

          • Richard

            No, I disagree with you. You don’t know history or you intentionally want to manipulate history.

          • Funso

            but the history is Otile na ọmọ àlè.

          • Otile

            While intelligent people write ideas idiots_ write insults. Pathetic.

        • Funso

          the truth is Otile na ọmọ àlè.

    • Richard

      May I ask when you were born. May I also ask if you ever know anything about Gani Fawehinmi, Wole Soyinka, Femi Falana etc. These people were made popular because of their challenge to various military governments. No one could ever cow them not to talk. Definitely you don’t know these and other people that was why you could make that statement . You are also in the category of the people that think your being alive is a privilege . If you don’t know it is your right to live , to be able to say your mind anytime and anywhere , even to live a good life is a right, to be educated is a right, to be secured in your country is a right. So stop seeing your rights as privileges.

      • emmanuel

        Guy Falana is a fake.

        Anyone who would ask that a good man drop a forgery case against a crook simply because they were of the same ethnic group is a rotten egg. Biko, do not ever mentioned Falana’s name along with Gani, they never where in the same boat. Even Soyi.ka who jas necome a boy to Amaechi negotiated for Gani not to prosecute Tinubi.

        He has taken up over fifty cases against the FG, most of them he ends up abandoning before some ate even mentioned in court.

        Tue man lacks character. Infact, he got his SAN because of sympathy and quota

        • musa aliyu

          just like Richrd is no match to your gaffe “do not ever mentioned Falana’s name along with Gani, they never where in the same boat.” Better get back to your English teacher so you can learn tenses and collocation.

        • King Carlos

          is he lying against Jonathan?

    • BTT

      Our problem in this country is simply respect to person. God fatherism has beclouded our sense of judgement. People like Femi Falana stood for the uncompromising truth, and our country is currently in this situation because nowadays politicians refuse to take to their advice. If US president could be criticized, why should a Nigeria president or governor be spared? They campaigned and begged for my vote, why would I not be able to criticize them?

    • Rasheed

      @ musa amina: What you are seeing is the beauty of democracy. To wish for otherwise is to be on the sideline of civilization.

    • King Carlos

      Where were you when Femi Falana and other lawyers were fighting for the return of democracy after June 12 was annulled? In fact, i think our human rights lawyers, civils societies and our activists have been soft on Jonathan.

  • emmanuel

    Is Falana the name of a dog or a he-goat?

    Make you nor let Gani spirit catch for that square o, if not je go strike you down. Unfortunately, the dead has no such power. Abi nor be the camloen when ask Gani not to persecute Tinubu for certificate forgery? Of course Gani was a man with character so he ignored the fake civil right man.

    E be like say he wan use this new one collect money from Oyinbo

  • Otile

    Many people are now beginning to believe that Mohamed/Muhammadu Buhari did not pass School Certificate, for if he did he would have shown a genuine certified copy. What is the need calling a press conference to explain away what Cambridge can send on demand the next day?

    Here is a person promising to fight corrupting, but is trying to smuggle himself in by perjury and forgery. Can the devil fight himself?

    • Colonel Mariama(rtd)

      Buhari does not have a cerFiticate to show.
      This issue is now settled for posterity. He ain’t got it because if he did then the army would have a copy on file.

      • Valerie

        It means Buhari lied on oath to swear affidavit saying he has WAEC certificate!
        Buhari is in real trouble for perjury – which is a criminial offence in criminal law.
        Obasanjo who should respect himself wants to prove Buhari’s certificate with talk.
        Instead of with proof of evidence which a person with common sense should know.

        • Ademola G.

          Does it mean Femi Falana does not know any law again on this Buhari matter?

          • Otile

            Does it mean Femi Falana is not corrupt in favor of Imam Buhari in this matter?

          • Funso

            No it means Otile na ọmọ àlè.

        yeye colonel, you think buhari is like you, who stole in exams rooms to get credit? go to shit

        • emmanuel

          Person wen nor pass WAEC? Buhari is just a dunce, how can a man who called himself a retired General do an Oluwole certipicate and paste him 73 years photo, nor be mumu General be dat?

          Infact Buhari should do restitution by going back to school like the Ota Baboon who has been promoted with failure since he returned back to school

          • musa aliyu

            I am a versatile Nigerian and proud to write pidgin English.

            I beg tell me about your Oluwole certipicate. A certificate prepared by three rogues – Tinubu, Buhari and Liar Mohammed could not survive a single day of public scrutiny.

            Bros i nor enter secondary or higher institution with two credit like you. If na lie, make we paste our results. Biko nor use affidavit.

          • musa aliyu

            Oga Mr One million credit, I’ve never been to the walls of any school, yet you can’t use the wasted money that bought you credits for exposition to think. All your credits remain valueless so long as you remain pigeon-holed to thinking that pen robbers that tether themselves to PDP in order to perpetuate a continuos bleeding- white syndrome to our dear country, using myopic fallouts to think of ethnicity while we remain faltered by their obnoxious sit-tight policies. With like-minded bigots like you, Nigeria has no future. It is a nation full of wasted breeds.

        The so called headline is a distraction from the certificate scandal.

    Falana is a complete nuisance. He is proof that SAN rank is worthless and meaningless. He is a disgrace to the legal profession.

    • Otile

      That’s an APC lawyer for you.

      • Funso

        Otile na ọmọ àlè.

        • Otile

          While intelligent people write ideas idiots_ write insults. Pathetic

        • TRUTH MASTER

          Funso, please don’t be deceived. Orafidiya is Otile and Otile is Orafidiya: Empty barrel that makes the loudest noise!

    • Harry

      GEJ is a complete GOAT

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        You are correct because GEJ is the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT).

        • Funso

          Ọmọ àlè ni Adekunle.

        • A Aminu

    • Rommel

      Why? give your reasons to contravene what he quoted from the constitution or are you the one who is insane?

    • TRUTH MASTER

      It is a cruel irony that a man of low achievement will be the one trying to demean a man of high achievement. A political hireling who spends his valuable time internet trolling, whose words are always laced with anger and effusive nonsense, will still have the audacity to malign anyone, least of all a man whose achievements the entire Orafidiya lineage can only dream of!!!

  • Dazmillion

    With a career criminal like Adoke advising Jonathan on legal issues how will the president know what the law says?

  • A Aminu

    No Femi. President Shagari had a colonel I G Usman as his ADC as well as a superintendent of police SP Gimba Umar as ADC but most of the times the policec ADC operates at the background with Col. Usman more visible and at most times sitting with President Shagari side by side. I presume the army officer ADC has to do with the president being the commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the federal republic of Nigeria.

    • emmanuel

      There was no need discussing the issue. The popular opinion was that Falana should go to court and he will abandon the case shortly after without even withdrawing it.

      Falana has mental reversal (Alzhemier), foisted on him by greed and attachment to Burdillon

      • Lemmuel Odjay

        The issue, please. Shadow boxing has gone out of fashion. Let’s keep our eyes on the ball. What did the law say about this issue?

    • Lemmuel Odjay

      Yes, my brother. BUT WHAT DID THE LAW SAY ON THIS ISSUE?

      • NwaMbaise

        He quoted POlice law- SEction 419, what about the army, navy and airforce? Why would he absolve obasanjo who is retired since more than 20 years to keep a soldier, and then a current president will not? THis hatred will kill us all in this country. Falana is becoming very petty. I thought he wanted to replace Gani Fawehinmi? BUt he has reduced himself to a busy body.

        • Lemmuel Odjay

          I thought the functional law of society when it comes to internal security, is the one that set up the police law and what the police should be responsible for. As for the military and their separate system that concerns them only, I remember their tradition requires that one soldier be delegated to every retired general till death. That is their law. Maybe I’d provoke Falana one of these days to explain further…

  • favourtalk

    Keep the wood work sir, they have destroyed what many patriotic nigerians stand for because of thier greed and personal sentiments to remain in power and to win at all cost. Nigerians have known the truth and will never allow them to cause a problem anymore. We need change in our country

  • Rambunctious Billionaire

    He is commander -in-chief and he should not have a military ADC? What kind of law do these people study? Even common sense dictates that he should have a military ADC as commander in chief of the armed forces.

    • Lemmuel Odjay

      I am surprised, my brother. But what did the law say about this? Should we obey the law first and complain later? I’m just surprised. Please, your advice, before I go to town again…

    • Dan Arewa

      I will approve a soldier to be his ADC only if he is going to sambisa forest.

  • Tella Aderemi

    Jona don fail.lawful or not lawyer in his actions

    • emmanuel

      He can use an Airforce, Naval, Army or Policeman, but not quasi military.

  • MushinSpeaks

    Breach of law; CHANGE we want!

  • Mr. Abdin

    change all the way.

  • ufoma

    Moron lawyer sef, this Falana, go and check other climes, you will not go and do litigation, leave politics alone!

  • Ade

    Does this lawyer ever see the bad behavior of Obasanjo? Is he scared to attack Obasanjo or what?

  • BlackieUmukoro

    Another idiotic statement. Was late yar adua’s aide camp a police officer too. Or that of shonekan was. Who did Mbu harass. Oloshi

  • uche

    It is obvious that Falana and his APC are angry that GEJ said anybody that attacks him will be shot. That shows they are behind the attacks. Let me sound my warning, Any further attack on the President will be dealt with decisively. RUBBISH! HE DID NOT ADDRESS THE ISSUE OF THE ATTACK ON THE PRESIDENT RATHER PREFER TO TALK RUBBISH. EVIL SHALL CONSUME YOU ALL FOR THE LACK OF RESPECT ON THE PRESIDENT. ALL YOUR EVIL PLANS SHALL RETURN BACK ON YOUR HEAD SEVENFOLD.

    • musa aliyu

      May the wrath of Amadioha fall on anyone who ha ours respect for thieves in the clothing store of leadership.
