  3. Former vice-presidential candidate Peter Obi has said the office of the First Lady should be scrapped as it only serves as an avenue to waste public funds. Office of first lady is unnecessary, waste of funds – Peter Obi Mr Obi said on Tuesday at an annual event organised by Foursquare Gospel Church in Lagos that the yearly budgetary allocation for the office should be stopped because it increases cost of governance in the country. He said such allocations should be used to fund education and health to halt medical tourism overseas. “The wives of the president, governors and by extension the local government councils did not stand for any election, never campaigned, so on what basis should the office exist in the first place,” he said. “With billions being voted for it, it calls for question from which political trajectory are we hinging our dispensation to allow such to go on without question. “We are confronted with low revenue and borrowing to fund budgets and debt servicing not to talk of teeming youths without jobs to contend with.” The former Anambra State governor added that with the routine staff attached to the offices of first ladies across the country, the chunk of the nation’s funds goes into servicing unproductive set of people whose existence should have been queried. In his remark, general overseer of the church Rev. Sam Aboyeji said that the religious body would continue to focus on areas of the polity that required attention for a better society.

  4. The Piggyvest Bamise scam allegation started after an Instagram user @_trapselena_ alleged that Piggyvest and some other top organizations in Nigeria invested in the company, Imagine Lenders managed by Bamise and his wife, Elizabeth. It is alleged that the couple is currently on the run with billions of Naira in investors’ funds, while efforts are being made by some persons to track them down in the United Kingdom where it is believed they have been hiding. Piggyvest reacting to the alleged Bamise ImagineLenders scam has reassured their customers saying all Piggyvest user funds remains safe and secure as always. Instagram user @_trapselena_ wrote: Just like MMM, Muyiwa and Glory Osei, MBA, etc, another financial fraud couple have struck again. Nigerians will never learn. This couple Bamise and Elizabeth are currently on the run with monies of Nigerians running into billions. The man operates a micro lending platform for small and medium scale traders. He collects money from investors, lends to the traders at 22percent interest then returns 10 percent of the profit to investors monthly. The lady is one of the clique members of Naija brand chic them and she runs a domestic staffing platform for hiring help. For the past couple of months, investors have neither seen their money nor heard from them. At this point now, both couple are in hiding and are possibly out of the country as they have investments outside nigeria. They have a house in Dubai and one in the UK. Late last year they bought citizenships to Antigua and Barbuda for themselves and two kids. The lady is enrolled in East London University UK. Major investors include Elevation church which gave them 500M naira. They attend Daystar Christian Centre where some of the money have been donated towards church programme.

  5. Past governor of Kano State, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso was on Saturday October 16 interrogated by the EFCC over allegations of abuse of office, diversion of public funds and fraudulent allocation of government properties to cohorts. The Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party was first invited by the EFCC in September, but reportedly failed to honour the invitation. An associate of the politician told Channels Television that Kwankwanso may have been invited in relation to a petition by some retired employees of the Kano State Government. The retired employees had claimed that the former governor mismanaged pension remittances to the tune of N10 billion between 2011 and 2015, to fund a housing project for his cohorts.

  8. The Pandora Papers listed Peter Obi among top leaders, public officials, and celebrities who use offshore shell companies to hide huge sums of money claims the former Anambra state governor has now reacted to. The Pandora Papers was put together by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ)revealed the underhand dealings of over 330 politicians and 130 Forbes billionaires, celebrities, fraudsters, drug dealers, royal family members and leaders of religious groups around the world; detailing how these wealthy individuals incorporate shell companies and other legal entities in low tax jurisdictions to evade taxes, clean up dirty drug money, hide funds looted from public coffers through corrupt practices, and make other legal investments and asset purchases. According to the release, Peter Obi set up and operated businesses abroad in tax and secrecy havens; and breached Nigerian laws while he was a serving governor by failing to declare these assets with the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB. He set up his first offshore company, Gabriella Investments Limited (named after his daughter who bears a similar name), 4 years into his time as governor of Anambra state. The creation of the company, which was domiciled in the British Virgin Island (named as “one of the world’s most notorious tax havens noted for providing conduits for wealthy and privileged corrupt political elites to hide stolen cash to avoid the attention of tax authorities”) was facilitated by Acces International, a Monaco based organization known for facilitating such covert operations. Acces is said to have been paid to provide figurehead directors to sit on the board of Gabriella Investments Limited in order to conceal its true ownership structure. Another company operating in the British Virgin Island, Aleman Cordero Galindo & Lee Trust (BVI) Limited (Alcogal), a Panamanian law firm, was contracted as the local agent to set up the company for Mr Obi. Reacting to the reports, Peter Obi said he did not declare companies and the funds and property he jointly owns with his family members or anyone else in his asset declaration filings with the Code of Conduct Bureau because he was unaware that the law required him to do so. “I don’t declare what is owned with others,”, he told Premium Times. “If my family owns something I won’t declare it. I didn’t declare anything I jointly owed with anyone.” He said the offshore entity is the holding company for most of his assets and that the business structure he adapted was to enable him to avoid excessive taxation. “I am sure you too will not like to pay inheritance tax if you can avoid it,” he said.
  9. No fewer than ten persons were said to have been set ablaze and many others were slaughtered while ten women were abducted by bandits in Kachiwe village Sarkin Pawa ward, Munya local government area of Niger State. Bandits kill 10 people, abduct 10 women in Niger The bandits destroyed the village during the attack on the community. They also succeeded in their nefarious activities due to the jamming of mobile networks in communities affected by banditry. Confirming the development, the Secretary of Munya local government area, James Isaac Jagaba on behalf of the council chairman revealed that the incident happened on Thursday morning at about 2am. “The bandits invaded the community on motorcycles and cars. The next day when I visited the community, there were car tracks after the Council was notified of the attack,” he explained. He said the bandits set all the houses in the community on fire, burnt 10 people alive, kidnapped about 10 women and slaughtered several others, adding that the whole of Kachiwe village has been annihilated with no survival. Jagaba revealed, “the whole community was wiped out by the bandits, nobody survived. We got to know about how they carried out the activities from the women who escaped and are still in shock” “The three people who survived are currently in shock and suffering from trauma. They need to be helped medically and otherwise because all they have been burnt down by the bandits”. He also said the bandits moved to Shapè village under the Sarki Pawa ward and killed nine people while other members took to their heels, while seven persons were slaughtered in the Gogope ward. The council secretary lamented, “All efforts to reach the security personnel proved abortive. We were told that for some days mobile network in Munya local government was seized. The people could not reach out to the security neither could they reach out to the council. And we at the Council got the message very late and efforts to get the security was not possible”. He then pleaded with the state government to tackle the issue of mobile network seizure in Munya local government area to help curtail future attacks on the area.
  10. Decorations, horses and fighter planes Usually, almost a week before October 1st, there would be flags and buntings on Awolowo Road all the way to Tafawa Balewa Square and on the other side of the neighbourhood, there would also be flags, balloons and buntings from Obalende Road, through Moloney Street and then to Catholic Mission Street (beside Tafawa Balewa Square). I was always torn between going outside to see whether the mounted police escorted the president all the way from Ribadu Road to Tafawa Balewa Square or watching the arrival sequence on TV. I always ended up watching it on TV. I was never quite sure if the mounted police escorted the president all the way from their barracks on Ribadu Road or whether, as a soldier on parade told me, they only escorted him from outside the arena into the arena. My Favourite part of the parade began from the 21 gun salute onwards. I would usually go and stand in the doorway and I’d usually hear the explosion from the artillery guns on TV first and then in real life. It took longer for the sound to travel directly to me than it did for me to hear it on TV. Then, immediately after the gun salute, I’d see the fighter jets on TV and I’d go outside to see two fighter jets and two attack helicopters flying over Five Cowrie Creek. There’s usually green and white smoke trailing the jets. Someone told me that they used to threw toys from the helicopters once upon a time, but I don’t know if that’s true. I also loved watching the various armoured vehicles as they rolled past. There was a particular year that I felt sorry for President Shagari. I was wondering how he was able to stand at the saluting dais for such a long time. Almost at the same time, my mum asked how the president was able to cope with the noise from all the armoured vehicles that were going past. Taiwo Obileye and Dame Julie Coker My favourite Independence Day commentators on the NTA were Taiwo Obileye and Julie Coker. Taiwo Obileye was absolutely wonderful. He would tell you the name of the parade commander and the name of the parade commander’s horse. He would also tell you the number of times that the horse has taken part in these kind of parade and explain that that’s why the horse was still when the 21 gun salute was fired and when the armoured vehicles and fighter jets went past. Taiwo Obileye’s diction was absolutely flawless and it was a joy to listen to him. I was in love with Julie Coker and so I watched anything that she presented. She was a perfect professional. Obasanjo and Thabo Mbeki I remembered Taiwo Obileye during one of the Independence Day parades in the early 2000s. That’s because the parade commander’s horse nearly threw him off and bolted when the 21 gun salute was being fired. The horse was frightened. Then the NTA showed Obasanjo and Mbeki and they were both laughing at the parade commander. I wonder why they didn’t use a horse that had experienced that kind of frightening noise before. None of the horses in the 1970s and ‘80s panicked like that. The crazy people It was also quite interesting to see the various schools that were marching past. C1982 (or was it 1981) a particular group of crazy students (who shall not be named) displayed a particular brand of madness while they were right in front of President Shagari. Schools usually try to put on a unique display when they get in front of the president, but that one was just insane (and you won’t believe the things they told me afterwards). Nigeria is 25! President Babangida usually staged a “Command Performance” on the night before Independence Day (September 30th). This was usually a dinner at which the major entertainment acts in Nigeria at the time would perform. I remember that the cast of the New Masquerade performed a couple of times, as did the cast of Samanja (it was said that Samanja was General Babangida’s favourite TV show). A lot of activities were lined up for Nigeria’s 25th anniversary celebrations in 1985. Famous singer, Bongos Ikue, wrote the lyrics of a television jingle. It went ♪Nigeria is 25 The odds we did survive Arise salute the nation Come join the celebration A people united will never fall *********************** Nigeria is 25! Nigeria is 25! Nigeria is 25! ♫ * = forgotten lyrics. President Babangida wanted the most famous comedian in Nigeria at that time, John Chukwu, to host the command performance, but JC had gone to his village on holiday, so President Babangida had to send the presidential jet to pick him up and bring him to Lagos. I remember that the NTA showed a (pre=recorded) variety show that morning and there were lots of stars on the show. I remember that Veno Marioghae was on the show as well as Samanja. I remember it because all the guests were made to sing along to a song that was composed for the anniversary (I think the song was by Veno). My aunt laughed heartily when Samanja sang his part. She couldn’t believe that Samanja could sing. 1986 Independence Day Drama. The usual arrival sequence on Independence Day during the military era was, 1) The service chiefs and the inspector general of police (they received the general salute) 2) The minister of defence & chairman joint chiefs of staff (he received the general salute) 3) The chief of staff Supreme Headquarters/chief of general staff (he received the national salute. The first 4 lines of the anthem) 4) The president/head of state and commander in chief (he received the national salute. The full anthem). This was also the order of precedence at national events. However, there was a coup on August 27th, 1985 which created a strange arrangement. 1) The president was Major General Ibrahim Babangida. 2) The chief of general staff was Commodore Ebitu Ukiwe 3) The minister of defence and chairman joint chiefs of staff was Major General Domkat Bali 4) The service chiefs were Major General Sani Abacha (chief of army staff), Rear Admiral Augustus Aikhomu (chief of naval staff) and Air Vice Marshal Ibrahim Alfa (chief of air staff). The question was, how can a commodore (one star general) be the chief of general staff (military vice president) when the minister of defence and service chiefs were two star generals? This was a recipe for disaster. Furthermore, General Bali was actually President Babangida’s senior and Admiral Aikhomu had been the chief of naval staff in Buhari’s administration when Ukiwe was just the flag officer commanding the Western Naval Command! Well, the answer was that Ukiwe served in the Biafran Navy during the Civil War and therefore he lost a round of promotion. He could have also been a two star general if the Civil War had not happened. Anyway, these issues came to a head ahead of the 1986 Independence Day parade. It was decided that Commodore Ukiwe should arrive the arena before the service chiefs. Commodore Ukiwe was not happy about this, so he did not attend the parade. This is exactly the way I remember it. There were sirens and a motorcade arrived. The commentator said, “. . .the sirens heralding the arrival of the chief of general staff”. I looked through the window of the car and I could see a white naval uniform, so I naturally assumed that it was Ukiwe, but it was not. It was actually President Babangida and he was dressed in the uniform of an admiral! Ukiwe did not attend the parade at all! Later that day, I heard that Ukiwe had been placed on house arrest. It was later announced that he had been retired from service. Four days later it was announced that Rear Admiral Aikhomu was the new chief of general staff and Rear Admiral Patrick Koshoni was the new chief of naval staff. The next year, on October 1st, 1987, President Babangida promoted himself to a four star general, Aikhomu was promoted to a vice admiral (three star), Bali was promoted to a lieutenant general (three star), while the service chiefs were left as two star generals. Abuja The first national Independence Day parade that was held in Abuja was held during the Shagari era. This was sometime between 1981 and 1983. The Akinola Aguda Lodge was hurriedly built to serve as the presidential residence during the celebration. The old Parade Ground was also built at this time. (See picture of the 22nd anniversary decoration in Abuja below) President Babangida also staged the 1986 and 1987 Independence Day parades in Abuja. The Nicon Noga Hilton Hotel was built for the 1987 Command Performance, which was staged in the Congress Hall of the hotel. (See picture of the Nicon Noga Hilton Hotel in 1987 below) No Parades The 1987 Independence Day parade was the last national Independence Day parade for a long time. There was no parade in 1988 and in fact, no parade was staged until 2000. My brother said that President Babangida was afraid that he would be killed in the same way that Anwar Sadat was killed. Third picture below = Vice President Alex Ekwueme. Fourth picture = General Buhari 1961 Independence Day Parade video We see the saluting dais at the Race Course in Lagos. Then we see the prime minister, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, stepping out of the Rolls Royce Phantom. He is welcomed by the service chiefs as school children cheer. Then President Nnamdi Azikiwe and Mrs Flora Azikiwe arrive in the state Rolls Royce. Dr Azikiwe is dressed in the uniform of a field marshal. He exchanges salutes with the GOC Nigerian Army, who also bows to him and then with the other service chiefs. Then we see President and Mrs Azikiwe on the review vehicle (a Land Rover Series) as they receive the cheers of the crowd. There is a clip of the VIP stand and we can see some of the ministers of the First Republic. The parade commander salutes Zik who returns the salute, then we see armoured vehicles (mainly ferrets) drive past the saluting dais. Finally Sir Abubakar and Dr Azikiwe watch as first the troops and later the school children march past the saluting dais (there's a cheeky school boy that sticks out his tongue at the camera). 1971 video We see the Nigeria Police Mounted Troop escorting the state car (a W108 Mercedes Benz S Class) into the arena. General and Mrs Gowon alight from the car. We see General Gowon and Kam Selem walking towards the saluting dais. Then we see General Gowon reviewing the troops from the back of an open top Land Rover. And then we see the troops marching past. Reviewing the troops on the saluting dais are General Gowon (who was promoted from the rank of major general to general on that day), Rear Admiral Nelson Soroh (who was promoted to the rank of rear admiral on this day), Alhaji Kam Selem, Major General David Ejoor and other senior military officers. We see policemen marching past and then fighter planes flying overhead. Then we see a cross section of the crowd watching the parade. We see Mrs Victoria Gowon and then the Lagos State Governor Brigadier Mobolaji Johnson. Then we see the federal commissioner (minister) for information and labour, Chief Anthony Enahoro. Finally, we get another view of the audience. 1973 Independence day speech "Of particular importance is the progress which we have continued to make with the implementation of our policy of increasing our control over the strategic sectors of our economy as well as encouraging indigenous ownership of business generally. The Federal Government now holds 40 per cent of the equity shares in the three major expatriate commercial banks and has its appointees serving on their Boards of Directors. Further, negotiations which have been in progress and aimed at securing Government participation in the existing oil companies and their concessions have been concluded successfully. As a result, the Federal Government now holds at least thirty-five per cent of the equity shares in each of the oil companies operating in the country. With effect from tomorrow, 2nd October, 1973, the Nigerian Bank of Commerce and Industry will open business to members of the public. The Bank, as you know, aims at providing equity capital and funds by way of loans to indigenous persons, institutions and organisations for medium and long term investments in industry and commence. These past few years have witnessed erratic weather conditions all over the world. Scanty rainfalls in the Savannah Region stretching across North Africa, Central Asia and Latin America have caused the worst drought in these areas in recent history. Parts of Nigeria, especially the northern districts of the North-Western, North-Central, Kano and North-Eastern States have been badly affected. It would like to seize this opportunity to express the deep concern of the federal Government about the plight of the people in all the affected areas. To provide immediate succour to the people in the areas affected by the drought, the Federal Government has made grants totalling 12-million Naira (16.4 million sterling) to the four states gravely affected, partly for the purchase of foodstuffs and livestock feeds to augment whatever is available locally and partly to improve water supply facilities by the provision of bore holes." 1974 video The video begins with a street scene. We see a banner on the street that reads, “Happy 14th year anniversary”. Then we see the Tafawa Balewa Square. We can see Western House in the background. The Nigerian Police Mounted Troop escort the state car into the venue. The horses’ hooves kick up too much dust, so I can’t tell for sure if the car is the iconic w100 Mercedes Benz 600 (the number 1 state car) or if it was a W108 S Class. Judging from the length of the car, I think it’s the 600 limousine. Then we see a cross section of the members of the public who are watching the parade. Next we see General Gowon in the uniform of an admiral. Behind him is the chief of staff, Supreme Headquarters, Vice Admiral Wey. They are both climbing up the stairs to the saluting dais. Then we see the troops marching past. Then we see General Gowon, Admiral Wey and General Ejoor on the saluting dais. We next see policemen marching past and then it’s the turn of school children to march past the saluting dais. We also see some foreigners in the audience who are taking pictures. We see the parade commander and then there’s a loss of sound as the 21 gun salute is fired. There’s still no sound as we see naval ratings give three cheers to the head of state. Finally we see the officers on the saluting dais. It was on this day that General Gowon made a major mistake. He had previously promised that he would hand over to a civilian government in 1976. However, in his Independence Day speech in 1974, he said that the 1976 handover date was no longer feasible. Many soldiers were tired of military rule. They were tired of being involved in government and they wanted to return to purely military duties. After this speech, Shehu Musa Yar’Adua, Joseph Garba and Abdullahi Mohammed started plotting to overthrow General Gowon. They staged their coup in July 1975 and handed over to Murtala Muhammad, Olusegun Obasanjo and Theophilus Danjuma, who announced that they would hand over to a civilian government in 1979. 1975 video There was no national Independence Day parade in 1975. Brigadier Murtala Muhammad ordered a low key celebration. However, states were encouraged to have parades at which school children marched. This is the Lagos State parade at the National Stadium, Surulere. The video begins with a view of the crowd outside the main bowl of the stadium. Then we see the Lagos State governor, Navy Captain Adekunle Lawal, delivering his speech. While Governor Lawal is reading his speech, we also see the NBC cameraman and a cross section of the spectators, including white cap chiefs. Finally we see the school children as they march past the governor. I can recognise Methodist Girls High School, St Gregory’s College Ikoyi and Igbobi College Yaba. 1976 video We see the head of state, Lieutenant General Olusegun Obasanjo, getting on the review vehicle (a Land Rover Series) to review the troops, the school children and the crowd. Then we see the troops marching past the saluting dais. The school children also march past the saluting dais before the troops fire a 21 gun salute. Then we see Major General Yar'Adua (the chief of staff, Supreme Headquarters), Lieutenant General Danjuma (the chief of Army Staff) and Vice Admiral Adelanwa (the chief of Naval Staff). 1978 video This video begins with a view of Tinubu Square. You can see an LSTC bus as it passes the old fountain at the square. Then it cuts to the Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS). We see the mounted police escorting the head of state into the arena. These are mounted policemen from the Ribadu Road Mounted Troop Barracks, just a short distance from Dodan Barracks. The state car, a Peugeot 504, comes to a halt and the head of state, General Olusegun Obasanjo exits the car. General Obasanjo walks past Colonel Mamman Vatsa (who was the commander of the Brigade of Guards at the time) and greets Major General Shehu Musa Yar'Adua (chief of staff, Supreme Headquarters), Lieutenant General T.Y. Danjuma (chief of army staff), Vice Admiral Michael Adelanwa (chief of naval staff), Air Vice Marshal John Yisa Doko (chief of air staff), Alhaji Muhammadu Dikko Yusufu (inspector general of police) and Navy Captain Ebitu Ukiwe (governor of Lagos State). Then we see General Obasanjo reviewing the parade. They didn't show my favourite parts - the armoured vehicles and the planes and helicopters. Then they show the head of state leaving the arena, escorted by the police mounted troop.
