Illegal Abortions: Report Vindicates Nigerian Army

Illegal Abortions: Report Vindicates Nigerian Army

 

A new report released yesterday by the Centre for International And Strategic Studies (CISS) has exonerated the Nigerian Army from the allegations of illicit abortion leveled against it by Reuters.

The news medium had claimed in its publication that the Nigerian Army had since 2013, “conducted a secret, systematic and illegal abortion programme in the country’s north-east, ending at least 10,000 pregnancies among women and girls who have been victims of insurgency.”

The report conducted in collaboration with the Coalition Of Civil Society Organisations On Rights And Security (CCSOHRS) described Reuters’ report as propaganda and slander against the Nigerian military.

It pointed out that the report by Reuters was a concerted effort designed to discredit the Nigerian Military.

It said it was time, therefore, for the Nigerian government and the Nigerian military, to follow up on the activities of NGOs in Nigeria, especially in the northeast zone.

The report read:  “The report “Nightmare in Nigeria: A Conflict Waged on the Lives of Women and Children” by Reuters, against the Nigerian military is false and stands dismissed.

“The Nigerian military is a professional military that stands tall among the best militaries of the world. She understands the rules of engagement and in the fight against Boko Haram insurgency in the North East, the Nigerian military plays by the rules and has in no way, been found liable of any war crimes and crimes against humanity as alleged by Reuters.

 

“This will help checkmate and prevent their propaganda and slander campaigns against the Nigerian military. When all is said, it must be submitted that the Nigerian military has been very professional in the fight against Boko Haram insurgency and has not by any means, been found culpable.”

Soil Science Institute Trains Extension Agents, FarmersOnuminya Innocent in Sokoto

The Nigeria Institute of Soil Science (NISS) has been tasked to monitor the step-down training on its Updated NISSAGRO Mobile App nationwide, by the trained extension agents and farmers.

Managing Director of KNARDA, Dr. Junaidu Yakubu, stated this at a one-day train-the-trainers workshop for extension agents and farmers, including a cross-section of NISS staff.

The workshop was organized, in collaboration with ADPs, in the North-west geopolitical zone on the use of NISS AGRO Mobile App, Version 2.0, which was held in Kano.

Yakubu, who was represented by the Director Extension of KNARDA, Mr. Gambo Isa, commended the efforts of NISS in upgrading its App, Version 1.0 to 2.0, also tasked the participants to learn the App fully so that they will disseminate the information and train others on the new App.

The App that was developed by NISS is an online and offline agricultural one-stop shop, designed to collect and analyse data, proffer solution and give advice to farmers, extension workers, agro dealers and other stakeholders towards improving agricultural productivity.

The training, coordinated by Professor Nafiu Abdu of the Department of Soil Science, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, on behalf of NISS North-west Zonal Coordinator, Professor Samaila Noma, of Usmanu Danfodiyo University Sokoto, has Aisha Buba from NISS Abuja, as the resource person.

 

Buba, who was assisted by other members of NISS, took participants on the background information of the upgraded version of the App, pointing out all the different components and special features added into the latest version.

According to her, “the NISS AGRO Mobile App, Version 2.0, is an upgrade on the pioneer 1.0 version, with contacts of registered soil scientists, information about latest agricultural techniques, more language selection beyond the major languages.

“It also showcased improved agricultural services already verified and satisfied by NISS. All that is required is a smartphone or an android enabled phone to download the app.”

She also explained the technical issues agitating the mind of the participants taking them through how to download the App, registration, log in and other relevant information about the App.

The gathering, however, demanded that more crops and publications in form of cartoons and local dialects should be added to the App.

A cross-section of the farmers and extension agents expressed their satisfaction and happiness on the improvement in the Mobile App and promised to step down the training to other members of farmer associations and groups.

Certificates of participation were presented to all the participants who expressed their heartfelt gratitude to the Registrar and CEO of NISS for his foresight and dedication.

TY BURATAI HUMANITY CARE FOUNDATION CALLS FOR EXPULSION OF A CHINESE FAMILY OWNERS OF A SUPERMARKET THAT SEGREGATES NIGERIANS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Global News Unveils That In a bold statement released by the TY Buratai Humanity Care Foundation, a call has been made for the expulsion of the Chinese family owners of a supermarket in Abuja, Nigeria, who deny Nigerians access to shop. The foundation, led by it’s Chairman Amb Ibrahim Dahiru Danfulani Sadaukin Garkuwan Keffi and Betara of Biu, expressed deep concern over the discriminatory practices of the supermarket, which only allows Chinese citizens to enter and purchase goods while barring Nigerians from doing the same.

 

 

 

 

 

TY BURATAI HUMANITY CARE FOUNDATION CALLS FOR EXPULSION OF A CHINESE FAMILY OWNERS OF A SUPERMARKET THAT SEGREGATES NIGERIANS 

 

 

 

 

The Grand Patron of the Foundation, His Excellency Ambassador Lt Gen Tukur Yusufu Buratai (Rtd) CFR, former Chief of Army Staff, condemned the discriminatory actions of the supermarket owners, likening it to racism. He emphasized that no foreign citizen should be denied his rights in Nigeria as long as he or she abides by the country’s laws. Gen Buratai questioned the audacity of foreigners dictating terms to bona-fide citizens on how to live or stay in their own country.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gen Buratai further criticized the discriminatory policies of the supermarket owners, stating that there is no valid reason for a company in Nigeria to refuse to sell to Nigerians. He labeled the actions of the Chinese family-owned establishment as a clear case of racism and called for decisive action by the federal government against any individuals, foreign or Nigerian, who flout the rules and regulations of the nation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The TY Buratai Humanity Care Foundation’s stance on the issue serves as a strong message against segregation and open hatred towards Nigerians. The foundation urges the government to address such discriminatory practices swiftly and firmly to uphold the rights and dignity of all citizens in Nigeria and even abroad.

Generals At War: How Sadique, Monguno’s Media Brokers Allegedly Approached Editors, Bloggers With Scripts To Disparage Buratai

 

By: James Bwala

 

 

I anticipated that this article could involve treading on some sensitive ground. But I am aware that standing up for the truth may also be heroism. Nigeria will be a better country when those with the proper minds stand up for the truth. When he arrived with the notion of a rekindled optimism, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu held this position. Therefore, it is too early for those whose selfish interests aim to stifle government to make way for a better Nigeria.

 

 

 

 

Recent assaults by Sahara Reporters on the former head of the Army, Lt. General Tukur Buratai, have revealed more people and organizations with ill will toward the current leadership. Additionally, they are currently attempting to put the current president against the former army chief for their selfish political reasons.

 

 

 

 

 

While we continue to keep an eye on their activities, it is becoming more and more obvious that these elements will be exposed in their upcoming attempt to assassinate the character of the former Army Chief, whose political relevance in the new administration is giving them nightmares because their hired media shills have been exposed too.

 

 

 

 

It is evident that one of their leads, Hon. Kabiru Mohammed has been to Lagos to finalize a plan to pitch President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu against Lt. General Tukur Yusuf Buratai, the former head of the army. a project allegedly supported by certain ex-comrades who became involved in politics and are starting to learn how to play the system by causing trouble and blackmailing people after hanging up their boots and looking for importance in the new administration.

 

 

 

 

This is happening as President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s new government is systematically handpicking the best people to assist him in leading Nigeria ahead in the direction of a vision of renewed hope. Well-meaning Nigerians praised President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s announcement of the appointments of his chief of staff, deputy chief of staff, and secretary to the government of the federal. Their tactics is to deny him the privilege of strategic thinking in appointing the best as he will.

 

The rumour making the round is already making some former service chiefs fall over themselves with a sinister mind of working for themselves or their preferred persons against any choice they feared President Tinubu may make, which is contrary to their plans of holding the government’s jugulars. The Tinubu’s administration is yet to make the announcement of who makes the ministerial lists but names running the rumour mill over the possibility of bringing former Army Chief Lt General Tukur Yusuf Buratai is already unsettling former military Generals under the Buhari administration. 

 

 

 

 

 

General Monguno and Ex- Air Chief Sadique Abubakar were mentioned as already fighting General Tukur Yusuf Buratai for whatever was left unfinished while in the army or for mere ego that they feared he possessed an intimidating record to stand taller in the next move by the president.

 

 

 

Recall that long ago, while Buratai was in charge of the Nigerian Army, attempts were made to undermine his successes in repositioning the security architecture. Emmanuel Onwubiko, the Coordinator of HURIWA, claims that moles have been put in the Army whose actions are intended to undermine General Buratai’s efforts to combat terrorism, particularly in the northeastern region of Nigeria.

 

 

 

 

Onwubiko’s statement reads: “There is no gainsaying the fact that the transformation of the Nigerian Army rapidly manifested under the leadership of the Chief of Army Staff; Lt. Gen Tukur Yusuf Buratai (Rtd), who was proactive in the war against terrorism despite efforts by moles and saboteurs embedded within the Army who were derailing the objectives of the counter Terror War and the efforts for the respect for fundamental human rights.”

 

 

 

 

Onwubiko suggested that perhaps those who haven’t been persuaded by the remarkable transformational measures devised to reposition the Nigerian Army for successful counter-insurgency battles and maintain military-civilian relationship practices are either bad historians or have poor memory retention.

 

 

 

He claims that recently, as part of the celebrations for the 2020 Nigerian Army Day and its corporate social responsibility, the newly constructed Camp Delta Force Quick Reaction Base was commissioned to improve the readiness of the military to respond quickly to terrorist activities in the communities. This was done in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State.

 

 

 

 

He said that the tremendous accomplishments that helped the Nigerian Army rise to the position of leadership in the security community would not have been possible without the devotion and selfless service of the previous Army Chief. This did not sit well with other groups, who, as Onwubiko noted, had hired spies to blame for the victories that had a direct bearing on the fighting in the northeast and, by extension, the northwest of Nigeria.

According to reports, the tainted relationship between the former Army Chief Lt. General Tukur Yusuf Buratai and the outgoing NSA General Monguno retired was a continuation of the feud that began between the late Chief of Staff to former President Muhammadu Buhari, Mr. Abba Kyari, and the outgoing NSA General Monguno retired. The article further stated that given the present political situation, outgoing NSA General Monguno has reaffirmed his commitment to preventing any influence or appointments for former Army Chief Lt. General Tukur Yusuf Buratai inside the Tinubu government.

Additionally, it was learned that the outgoing NSA went above and above to compile a long list of supposed events that took place during General Buratai’s heyday as COAS in an effort to discredit and denigrate him in the public eye. Even though it was revealed that the former Air Chief Sadique Abubakar was behind recent attacks by Sahara Reporters on the personality of the former Army Chief, Lt. General Tukur Yusuf Buratai, it is rumored that General Monguno may not be the only person seeking General Buratai’s downfall in the unfolding political relevance of the former Army Chief.

“From late yesterday to this morning, I received calls from some of my editor colleagues, including SR itself, about an approach made to them to publish a well-scripted damaging story on the former Army Chief, Lt. General Tukur Yusuf Buratai, alleging that he secretly helped PDP during the last presidential election that Asiwaju won,” said the editor who expressed his thoughts on the misguided attempt to smear Buratai’s name. I think they’re playing a game here to pitch the current administration against the old Army Chief, who is already starting to matter politically under the Bola Tinubu-led administration.

It was gathered that on Hon. Kabiru Mohammed was being used in media campaigns against the former Army Chief for at least two years now. He was said to be presently in Lagos in the pursuit of the dastardly assignment.

We also gathered that General Monguno (rtd0 is doing an executive summary of all the alleged infractions, which he plans to present to President Tinubu later this week. Hon. Kabiru will then ensure regular publication of snippets in the social and mainstream media – all with a view to damaging the reputation of the General and stopping his good relationship with the new administration.
