Fleeing Fulani Herdsmen Finally Returns.

The Fulani residents at Eggua in the Yewa-North Local Government Area of Ogun State have returned to their bases after a mob burnt houses and Kara market in the community.


The mob had last week took advantage of the visit of the Yoruba rights activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, to the area over the killings of farmers by Fulani herdsmen.


The mob set ablaze the houses belonging to the Eggua Seriki of Fulani and others, as well as the Kara market.

One person reportedly lost his life after the violence.


But it was gathered on Monday that the fleeing Fulani herdsmen who are residents of the area were back to their bases .


It was gathered that the Fulani herdsmen went back to their houses and Kara market after they got the assurance from the police in the state of protection of lives and property.


The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, who spoke with our correspondent on the telephone said, “They didn’t run away, they only escaped. After our meeting with them we have asked them to go and live their lives normally.


Presidency Backs Buratai, Others For Ambassador.

The Presidency has stated that it is not wrong to lobby senators for confirmation of appointments of former Service Chiefs as ambassadors.


Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had on Thursday last week forwarded a request for confirmation to the Senate ambassadorial nominations of former Chief of Defence Staff, General Gabriel Olonisakin, former Chief of Army Staff, Lt- Gen Yusuf Tukur Buratai, former Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshal, Abubakar Sadeeq and former Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok – Ete Ekwe Ibas.


But the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and some Nigerians had called on the Senate to align with the Nigerian people and reject the confirmation.


Assembly Workers Threaten Strike Over Financial Autonomy

Workers in the various state Houses Assembly under the auspices of the Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN) have given a 21-day ultimatum to the federal government effective from January 27, 2021 for a full implementation of financial autonomy for the legislature or face a total shutdown.


According to a strike notice addressed to President Muhammadu Buhari dated January 27, 2021, the group said its members have been patient for two years without implementation.


PASAN also expressed dismay over the action of the Nigerian Governors Forum (NGF) aimed at frustrating the implementation of financial autonomy for the state Houses of Assembly.


The notice, which was jointly signed by its president, Muhammad Usman, and general secretary, D. D Suleiman, warned that if the demands are not met on or before the expiration of the ultimatum, the association would be left with no option than pull her members out of duties.


CACOVID Disowns BUA’s Vaccine Donation

The private sector-led coalition against COVID-19 (CACOVID) has debunked a statement by the BUA group, stating that the company has purchased one million doses of COVID-19 vaccine for Nigeria.


The BUA in a statement on Monday stated that it had paid for the dreaded disease remedy through the AFREXIM Vaccine programme in partnership with CACOVID.


The firm revealed that the vaccines will be delivered next week, adding that it will be distributed at no cost to Nigerian citizens.
