TUDUN BIRI BOMBINGS: A TIME FOR NIGERIANS TO UNITE AGAINST OUR COMMON ENEMIES – TY BURATAI HUMANITY CARE

In a statement released by the Chairman of the TY Buratai Humanity Care Foundation, Amb Ibrahim Dahiru Danfulani Sadaukin Garkuwan Keffi, condolences were extended to the families of the deceased, and sympathies were expressed for the wounded. Prayers were offered for the souls of the departed and for the swift recovery of those injured.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Chairman of the Foundation highlighted the concern of the Grand Patron of the foundation, His Excellency Amb Lt Gen Tukur Yusufu Buratai CFR Betara of Biu, upon hearing the tragic news.

The foundation emphasized the importance of not using this tragic incident to fuel tribal, regional, or religious tensions. It urged the populace to remain calm and allow the government and security agencies to thoroughly investigate the matter.

The incident prompted swift regret and an apology from the Nigerian Army High Command, led by the Chief of Army Staff Lt Gen TA Lagbaja, followed by Chief of Defence Staff Gen CG Musa and the Kaduna State Government. The presidency also expressed sympathy and announced the institution of an investigation panel. These actions are commendable and represent steps in the right direction. The Grand Patron of the Foundation has expressed his commendations to the Chief of Army Staff and the Chief of Defence Staff for their courage, maturity, and professional approach in handling the unfortunate incident.

However, it is crucial to recognize that this unfortunate incident occurred within the context of an ongoing struggle against bandits and terrorists who seek to undermine our nation’s security and unity. These enemies of our country will seize upon any opportunity, such as this incident, to further divide us and subvert our sovereignty.

It is imperative that we remain united in the fight against insecurity. Engaging in blame games and fostering negative sentiments will only serve to demoralize our troops and hinder our troops’ efforts to create a safe and secure Nigeria. The ongoing inquiries will help shed light on the true circumstances surrounding the Tudun Biri incident.

The foundation assured the public that the government and security agencies are fully engaged in addressing the situation. “There is no government that will deliberately kill its own people,” the statement read. “Mistakes may have been made, but we urge you to remain calm and trust in the ability of the government and security agencies to rectify the situation.”

While these inquiries are being put in place, it is very necessary to advise on the need for training and retraining of the troops in all aspects of tactics, operational art, and the use of modern technologies. Intelligence operations must be coordinated by all the security agencies at the local government, state, and national levels. This will give the added advantage for effective planning and execution of operations either jointly or by a single Service.

The TY Buratai Humanity Care Foundation has been actively involved since the incident, providing support and assistance to the affected families and communities. The foundation remains committed to helping those affected by this tragedy.

In closing, the foundation offered its prayers for an end to the insecurity challenges that continue to pose a threat to the nation. It called for unity and cooperation among all Nigerians in order to overcome these challenges and ensure a peaceful and prosperous future for all.

As the investigation into the accidental bombing continues, the TY Buratai Humanity Care Foundation stands in solidarity with the affected families and the Kaduna State Government, offering its support and condolences during this difficult time.

Lagos Lawmakers Invite Attorney-General Over Supreme Court Judgement On LGs

 

commend Police for successful operation against kidnappers

– applaud First Lady Remi Tinubu for encouraging gardens

 

 

The Lagos State House of Assembly has invited the Attorney-General of the State, Mr. Lawal Pedro, to appear before it to explain the Supreme Court judgement on local governments in the country.

 

Lagos Lawmakers Invite Attorney-General Over Supreme Court Judgement On LGs

The lawmakers said there was a need for better understanding of the decision of the apex court in relation to some provisions in the Constitution of the country.

A seven-man panel of the Supreme Court had declared on Thursday that the 774 local government councils in the country should receive their funds directly from the Federal Government as well as manage such funds themselves being a tier of government.

The court further declared that allocations to local government councils run by caretaker committees were illegal.

Ruling after a voice vote by lawmakers at plenary on Thursday, the Speaker of the Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, ruled: “There is a need for us to seek clarification and understanding of this judgement. It will be good to invite the Attorney-General to brief us and give his understanding so that we do not run foul of the judgement.”

Meanwhile, the Lagos State House of Assembly has resolved to write a letter of commendation to the Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, over the successful operation by men of the force that led to the elimination of nine kidnappers in the state recently.

A letter of commendation is also to be sent to the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Adegoke Mustapha Fayoade, for the efforts of the policemen which led to the fruitful operation.

Speaker Mudashiru Obasa, who presided over the plenary, said the police and men of the force who took part in the operation needed to be commended.

Dr. Obasa agreed with members of the House that letters be sent to Egbetokun and Fayoade further charging them not to relent in keeping the State safe for residents.

He stressed the need for stakeholders to fast-track considerations for the creation of state police to support the federal police system.

The Majority Leader of the House, Hon. Noheem Adams, had earlier recalled how the police launched the operation against some kidnappers in the Ladipo area of the state and eliminated nine of them.

According to him, there has been calm in the area since the operation was carried out.

Noheem added that the Ikorodu area of the state which hitherto had issues of kidnapping now enjoys relative peace.

In another development, the House of Assembly has applauded the First Lady of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, for seeking to encourage subsistence agriculture.

The Speaker said it was a beautiful idea to encourage Nigerians to have gardens in their houses arguing that this would help to create food sufficiency.

He recalled that schools had farms in the past adding that current situations call for a return to that period.
