See SCARY Things That Will Happen To You If You Don’t Vote In Nigeria’s 2019 Election

With the Nigerian general elections holding in less than two months away, there has been talk of a boycott from the South East even as many other people refuse to get their PVCs that will enable them cast a vote.
While you have one vote and it doesn’t seem like much, here are some scary things that will happen if you don’t vote:
 
1. Nigeria will continue to have the worst-in-the-nation voting gap between the rich and the masses. The voices, demands, and needs of the masses will not be heard because your vote is your representation. If you don’t vote, there is no representation for you.
2. More people are losing their voting rights. Right now, people living in different communities who have served their time but are still on probation/parole do not have the right to vote. If you don’t vote, that will just be the beginning of silencing as many voices as possible.
 
3. Your kids’ future. Your votes determine what kind of laws and policies that will be created to make your lives and future better. Future generations are relying on us to vote for them.
 
4. Going backward on all the change that has been made. From the reduced corruption, to removal of a glass ceiling for women, to a more livable minimum wage, to barriers removed for people with criminal records to jobs so they can rebuild their lives. These changes in everyday people’s lives are in danger of going away if we don’t vote and make it clear we want these changes to grow, and even more so, we are ready for more change.

The leaders during the meeting considered the report of the Defence and Security committee set up by the leaders in Ndjamena, Chad earlier in December. They are looking to overhaul strategies to counter Boko Haram and other security threat in order to stabilise the crisis-ravaged region.
 
President Buhari during the opening ceremony of the meeting said he believes that military strategy must be complemented by the mobilisation and deployment of adequate resources. He insists this will ensure reconstruction, rehabilitation, and rebuilding of civil authority and provision of relief to affected persons.

He noted that the Lake Chad region had suffered decades of neglect and poor infrastructural development, saying that the Boko Haram crisis in the last eight years had worsened its already bad situation.
 
In his words, “We must take cognizance of the fact that sustainable growth and development of the sub-region is dependent on the quick attainment of peace and stability in the area. We must put an end to the crisis in the sub-region to enable meaningful development for its people. We must remain resolute and committed in our collective efforts at attaining peace as well as eradicating terrorism and violent extremism from the sub-region. The time has come for the evil of Boko Haram to be brought to a definitive end. I am sure that this summit will take the right decisions in this regard.”
 
The meeting holds a month after President Buhari traveled to N’djamena, Chad to convene a similar meeting to review the security situation and intensify the efforts to rid the region of insurgency.

(VIDEO) WOW!!! WATCH How Drivers Scramble To Grab ‘100 Million Naira’ After Bullion Van Spills Money

Police say the investigation determined that two plastic bags containing $140,000 and $370,000, respectively, had fallen through the open door of the bullion van onto the roadway, causing the bags to open, reports ABC7. The vehicle traffic along with the windy weather conditions caused the currency to become airborne and scatter across the highway.
 
Passing motorists stopped to gather money, while others began to assist the personnel inside the bullion van. Officials said they were only able to recover $205,375 from the highway. Later, five individuals either contacted the East Rutherford Police Department or another police agency, which led to the recovery of an additional $11,090. Which means that $293,535 is still missing.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! Atiku Abubakar Explodes In Anger, Attacks President Buhari, VP Yemi Osinbajo

The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has described the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, at the burial of the Soldiers killed in Metele attack, in Maiduguri, as ‘totally unacceptable’.
Atiku in a statement he personally signed on Saturday, said it was even more painful when the Federal Government refused to send a delegation to represent it at the funeral.
 
He stated that Buhari should learn from French President, Emmanuel Macron, who on March 28, 2018, took a whole day off to attend the funeral of Lt. Col. Arnaud Beltrame, who was killed by a terrorist, after a March 24, 2018 terror attack on the South of France.
 
Atiku stated: “Today, I saw the pictures of the funeral of the Officers and men of the 157 Task Force battalion of the Nigerian Army, based in Metele, and who were killed by Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists, and my heart went out to the men, their families, and to our entire Armed Forces. May their souls rest in peace, and may God grant their families fortitude at such a trying time.

“I am further pained that neither the President or his Vice were in attendance at the funeral, and that the Federal Government did not send a high powered delegation to represent the government at the funeral. This is sad and totally unacceptable. This is beyond politics. This touches our shared humanity. What would it cost for the President to take a day and fulfil his role as Head of State, by attending the funeral of such men of honour and valour?
 
“The sad part of it, is that a day before their funeral, President Muhammadu Buhari took time out of his busy schedule to host Nollywood Stars at the Presidential Villa.
 
“I appreciate Nollywood, and I have personally done a lot, both in my private capacity and when I was Vice President, to promote that vitally important industry. However, it does not send a right message to the men and women who are fighting for Nigeria, if you can attend a get together of entertainers, but you cannot find the time to honour those who make the peace we are benefitting from possible.”

Community In Fear Over Police Siege

The people of Ubaru in Igbariam, Anambra East Local Government of Anambra State, on Saturday claimed that the police had laid siege to the communityThey said no fewer than 16 persons from the community including an 84-year-old retired headmaster had been arrested and detained by the police in Abuja over a communal land dispute in the area. They claimed that seven houses were destroyed by some suspected hoodlums allegedly aided by some security operatives.
Speaking with our correspondent in Awka, the state capital, Mr. Nnalue Iloegbune, whose house was destroyed, called for government’s intervention on the matter, adding that the entire community was living in fear. He said every male adult of the community had deserted the area for fear of being killed or arrested by the police and their hirers.
 
He said, “The land in issue was part of the Igbariam farm settlement which our community donated to government during the Michael Okpra administration of the old Eastern Nigeria. After the civil war, 360.085 hectares of the land, which was part of the farm settlement, was given back to Igbariam community. The community decided to share it into eight portions, each for the seven villages and one portion reserved for community development. We have been making use of the land, but in 2014, our president-general (name withheld) said we should keep part of the land for him.
 
“When we objected and called for the survey of the land for parcellation, our traditional ruler, Igwe Nneli Kelly refused and threatened to banish Ubaru village which was in the forefront of the demand.
Another woman, Mrs. Catherine Ogini, said in addition to destroying her house, the hoodlums collected N300,000 belonging to her church women’s group in the community. She claimed that they collected a television set from her house and threatened to deal with her should she shout.
 
When our correspondent visited the palace of the traditional ruler of the area, Igwe Nneli, to get his own version of the story, two young men suspected to be his security guards said the monarch was out of town.
 
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr Mohammed Haruna, said he was yet to be briefed on the matter and promised to get back to our correspondent, but he never did.

The KSHB’s Assistant Commander on Special Duties, Mr. Nahabani Usman, who made the disclosure, said the action was in compliance with the penal code of the Board, which prohibits drugs or any intoxicating substance. He also urged the state government to incorporate its newly-proposed Drug Control Agency into the activities of the Board and constitute a special court to address the cases of illegal drug-related offences in the state.

The assistant commander urged professors and other wealthy individuals, who had only one wife but intended to marry more, to pick the forms from the Board or from his office. He claimed the move is to make them participate in the forthcoming mass wedding of widows and divorcees being sponsored by the state government.
 
“I am appealing to professors or wealthy individuals, who are interested in having more wives to come forward and collect the forms for registration to participate in the mass wedding,” he stated.

IMPENDING DANGER!!! Farmers Cry Out Over Fulani Herdsmen Invasion

Some farmers and residents of some communities in Guma, GwerWest and Logo Local Government Areas of Benue State have raised the alarm over the influx of Fulani herdsmen with their cows into their areas. Many others were said to be making attempts to cross over from Benue-Nasarawa states’ borders into their communities for open grazing.
A number of farmers in the areas, who have fled their homes and farms, are still taking refuge at various Internally Displaced Persons camps in the state following frequent attacks by the herdsmen on the farming communities in the state.
 
A displaced farmer currently taking refuge at the IDP camp in Abagena, Mr Atsar Mnsoor, who spoke to our correspondent in Makurdi, said he decided to leave the camp to his village to see if he could return home with his family to engage in dry season farming only to see thousands of cows around the area advancing from Nasarawa State to his land.
Mnsoor said, “I normally grow cassava and guinea corn during dry season and this is the period we start the preparation. So, I went to the area thinking l could do it now after l lost over N2m worth of harvested crops last year due to the attacks. I was astonished to see herdsmen around the area again. My community was attacked early January by herdsmen. After killing several people, they razed our homes, farms, food barns and warehouses where we usually stocked our produce for sale to traders. From all indications, even if we return to our communities today, it could take us another two to three years to be able to reorganise our farms. And these marauders are still seen within our community.”
 
Another farmer from Tser Jooji in the Gwer West LGA of the state, Mrs Sewuseer Anume, said if not for the presence of the troops of Operation Whirl Stroke stationed around the area, herdsmen could have overrun their community because they were already milling around the area.
 
She stated, “For the past 11 months, we have abandoned our home. But just this month, we went home only to see Fulani herdsmen in the area again and immediately we saw them, we reported the matter to the OPWS who came to flush them out. I’m pleading with the Federal Government to address the issue of herdsmen coming into Benue to avert another round of killings.”
