Tinubu Speaks On His Health Issue

All Progressives Congress chieftain and presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu, has stated that qualifying to be President of Nigeria doesn’t require strength but intelligence and smartness to overcome the numerous problems bedevilling the country.

“A President’s job is not to climb mountain, a wrestling match, or carry concrete; it is to think and perform with his brain.

“We are not looking for WWE wrestling fighter; we are looking for a thinker to provide security for us; we are looking for a doer who will look at economic opportunities and turn it around to prosperity,” Tinubu stated on Friday in Minna, the Niger State capital, where he met APC delegates ahead of the party primaries.

UK Government Missing In Action To Support Biafran Agitation – Nnamdi Kanu’s American Lawyer, Bruce Fein

Bruce Fein, American legal practitioner representing the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has tackled the United Kingdom Government over its inaction on the Biafran agitation.

Fein, on Saturday, said that for over five decades since the end of the Biafran war, the wounds were yet to heal for many as some Nigerians still agitated for the breakaway state.

Kanu, the IPOB leader, who is also a British citizen, is the most noticeable face of the Biafran movement. The Nigerian government had declared IPOB a “terrorist organisation” in 2017, but the pronouncement had not stopped the group’s activities – especially overseas where it enjoys the support of millions of Igbos in the diaspora.

Islam does not encourage killing of innocent people- Zamfara Imam, Jangebe

The Zamfara State Commissioner for Religious Affairs who is also the Chief Imam of the Muslims Foundation mosque, Sheikh Sani Tukur Jangebe has condemned the lynching and gruesome murder of Deborah Samuel of the Sokoto State College of Education.

The Islamic cleric advised Muslims to abide by the teachings and lessons of Islam, saying even the prophet Mohammed, underwent several insults and humiliations but did not order the killing of his adversaries.

He said it is a very great sin for any Muslim to take such laws into his or her hands, saying that Allah did not ordain such Islamic injunction.
