Coalition condemns campaign of calumny against Mallam Yusuf Bichi; DG, Department of State Services.

 

 

 

The Coalition of Civil Society Groups Against Terrorism in Nigeria has described the unfounded rumours and various sponsored campaign of calumny against the Director General of the DSS, Mallam Yusuf Bichi as an attempt by mischief makers to smear his name.

 

 

Coalition condemns campaign of calumny against Mallam Yusuf Bichi; DG, Department of State Services.

 

 

The group in a statement signed by it’s Convener and Secretary, Comrade Oladimeji Odeyemi and Barrister John Atani, described the detractors and some highly partisan purveyors of those fake news and false narratives against Mallam Bichi and most importantly the
Department of State Services (DSS), as visionless and unpatriotic attention seekers.

One of such sponsored propaganda, is the myopic insinuation that the Director General siphoned an imaginary payment of Thirty-five thousand naira (₦35, 000) meant for the payment of wages approved by President Bola Tinubu for personnel of the service, while an average Nigerian knows that the statement is a figment of the imagination of the enemies of this great Country and criminal elements who are afraid of the work of the Service. The personnel of the DSS have been enjoying an improved welfare package since the assumption of office of Mallam Bichi. While it’s a statement of fact that the personnel of DSS cannot be classified as Civil servant rather a security organization rendering essential services to the nation. Staff welfare, allowances and packages has been one of the cardinal programmes of Mallam Yusuf Bichi, hence we condemn this insidious attempt to cause disaffection within the service and it’s leadership.

This is to also condemn the activities of a certain, Jackson Ude who on his X (Twitter) handle @jacksonpnb, posted, accused the person and office of the DSS Director-General Mallam Yusuf Bichi of increasing an imaginary “goodbye allowance” for outgoing DG from N120million to N200million.

According to him Bichi would pocket N200million as he prepares to leave the agency he had once retired from.

Ude insiated that the operatives are angry at the level of corruption under Bichi, maintained that it is the worst in the history of the DSS especially with the involvement of his wife and other family members in contracts in the spy agency.

But the Coalition of Civil Society Groups Against Terrorism in Nigeria said the allegations is baseless, careless and unfounded and should not be taking serious by any discerning mind. The said Jackson Ude is on a voyage of self destruction and he does not care to drag an innocent soul into the mud with him.

The group maintained that, Under Mallam Yusuf Bichi, the DSS operates within the bounds of the law and adheres to international best practices because he is an astute and versatile administrator, a resourceful, a highly detribalized Nigerian, an Intelligence Officer of immense repute and more importantly a transparent and prudent leader,.who possesses a high level of experience and exposure that has no doubt repositioned and made the Service one that Nigerians and the personnel are proud of.

The Coalition urges the said Ude and all other sponsored characters and their team to desist from tampering with the credibility of Mallam Yusuf Bichi whose tenure have witnessed tremendous progressive changes and reforms in the Services.

In concluding the Coalition reiterated that, it’s a statement of fact that Mallam Yusuf Bichi and the DSS enjoys a high level of confidence from President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the Nigerian populace, and what Mallam Yusuf Bichi and the DSS deserves from Nigerians are accolades, and not mudslinging and wicked propaganda from highly partisan characters.

Governor Sanwoolu Replicates Primate Ayodele’s ‘Palliative Market’ Initiative In Lagos

Hunger Is Making You Go Blind’’ – Analyst Blasts APGA’s Chinedu Obigwe For Tackling Primate Ayodele

*Governor Sanwoolu Replicates Primate Ayodele’s ‘Palliative Market’ Initiative In Lagos*

 

 

Since Nigeria has been enmeshed in economic hardship that started after the removal of fuel subsidy last year, Primate Elijah Ayodele, a Nigerian prophet, has been practically taking several measures to alleviate Nigerians from penury through different philanthropic activities.

 

Governor Sanwoolu Replicates Primate Ayodele’s ‘Palliative Market’ Initiative In Lagos*

 

Long before fuel subsidy was removed, Primate Ayodele has always dedicated the first Sunday of every month for ‘food service’, a service where everyone would go home with packs of food items like Rice, Beans, Garri, crates of eggs, tubers of yam, and a token.

Immediately fuel subsidy was removed, Primate Ayodele doubled his effort by making food service almost every Sunday. He understood the effect of the fuel subsidy removal on Nigerians and as an influential personality in the country, he effectively played the role of a succor provider for the people.

As time went on, the federal government announced that it will release some funds for palliatives in order to reduce the impact of fuel subsidy removal which has turned out to become a full blown economic hardship. When the government came up with this idea, Primate Ayodele knocked down the idea and said it would be another means to embezzle funds because it won’t get to the right people.

These were his words,

’’The N8,000 palliative is corruption, I see nothing in the palliative and it will not reach out to the poor masses. Despite the fact that Mr President has signed it, it will not make any impact. The governors will use it for their selfish needs. The poor will not enjoy it at all.’’

‘’It will not be a blessing to the majority, the palliative is just a waste of time and energy, it cannot work for its purpose,’’

Tinubu’s N8k palliative corruption in disguise – Primate Ayodele

Ever since, Primate Ayodele proposed in his heart to teach the government how to effectively organize a palliative that will impact the people directly. Instead of merely talking, Primate Ayodele went ahead to organize a ‘palliative market’ where he sold food items for ridiculous prices.

The idea behind this palliative market was to purchase items at the exorbitant prices they are being sold for and sell to the people at cheap prices. The first edition which was held in November 2023 saw a bag of rice sold for less than N5,000. There were other items like beans, indomie, tubers of yam, garri, groceries, turkey, groundut oil sold for very ridiculous prices and this wasn’t opened to church members alone, people from distant places benefited from this initiative.

As if that wasn’t enough, again on Wednesday,14th Of February 2024 to celebrate his annual thanksgiving programme, Primate Ayodele held another edition of palliative market and sold a full bag of rice for N20,000. There were also different food items bought at exorbitant prices by the man of God and sold to the people at cheap prices.

While speaking at the palliative market, Primate Ayodele called on state governors to replicate the same palliative market initiative in their various states because of the economic hardship in the country. He explained that affordability of food will go a long way in reducing the impact of the hardship on citizens.

In response to Primate Ayodele’s actions and calls, it appears Lagos state government has keyed into the palliative market initiative with the announcement of Governor Babajide Sanwoolu on Thursday morning during a live interview session.

Given the rising cost of food and other staples, Mr Sanwo-Olu expressed the state government’s resolve to open more markets where residents can buy food items at discounted rates.

Specifically, the governor disclosed that plans have been concluded to open Sunday Markets in at least 42 identified markets across the state where residents will be able to buy food items at discounted price. “You will only be able to buy items worth up to N25,000,”

This is no doubt a welcome development and it vividly shows that state governments are now interested in doing the right thing for the benefit of the people. If other state governments follow suit, the impact of economic hardship would be reduced to its barest minimum.

Labour Party Candidate Accuses Former Chairman of Forgery and Electoral Sabotage in Ebonyi State

Labour Party Candidate Accuses Former Chairman of Forgery and Electoral Sabotage in Ebonyi State

Labour Party Candidate Accuses Former Chairman of Forgery and Electoral Sabotage in Ebonyi State

 

 

Eze Oko Splendour, the Labour Party’s 2023 governorship candidate for Ebonyi State, has levelled serious allegations against the party’s former National Chairman, Julius Abure, in a statement released on Wednesday. Splendour accuses Abure of orchestrating a campaign of “criminality, deceit and manipulation” to deny him the governorship candidacy.

 

 

 

 

Following his victory in the party’s primaries, Splendour claims Abure pressured him to step down in favour of Edward Nkwegu Okereke, who had unsuccessfully contested the primaries for the All Progressives Congress (APC). When these efforts failed, Splendour alleges Abure resorted to forgery, fabricating a withdrawal letter bearing his forged signature and submitting it to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to facilitate an illegal substitution.

“I was left in utter shock when I eventually caught wind of the reprehensible actions of the former Chairman,” Splendour states in a speech he read at a press conference. He describes Abure’s actions as a “betrayal of trust” and a “brazen act of criminality” that undermines “internal party democracy, free and fair elections, and the rule of law.”

Splendour further claims that after pursuing legal action, the Federal Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) recommended Abure’s prosecution. However, he expresses concern that the case has stalled, prompting him to appeal directly to the new Attorney General of the Federation, Lateef Fagbemi.

“The prosecution of Abure is not only a matter of justice but also a reaffirmation of our commitment to the principles of transparency, fairness and accountability in governance,” Splendour emphasizes. He urges Fagbemi to take swift action, highlighting the importance of holding those who attempt to manipulate elections accountable.

He concludes with a call for upholding the rule of law and ensuring no one is above it. While Abure has yet to respond to the allegations, Splendour’s accusations raise concerns about potential manipulation within the Labour Party and the integrity of electoral processes in Ebonyi State.

Also the party Governorship flag bearer in plateau state had his name removed and substituted by National Chairman, Julius Abure who allegedly forged his signature on purported letter of withdrawal.
