Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has presented a six-point demand to Muhammadu Buhari.

Members of the National Peace Committee, led by a former Military leader, Abdulsalam Abubakar met with Atiku, his running mate, Peter Obi and other PDP bigwigs last night.

Atiku, who was defeated with a margin of over three million votes by President Buhari on Saturday, had vowed to approach the court to seek redress.

Top on Atiku’s demands to Buhari was unfreezing of opposition politicians’ bank accounts, according to Vanguard.

Another major demand presented to the Peace Committee was demilitarisation of subsequent polls.

The Peace Committee will later meet President Muhammadu Buhari with the demands.

Other demands made by the ex-VP include:

That accreditation of voters should take place before voting in subsequent elections.

That there should be no deployment of the military in subsequent elections.

That should open its back end server to all participating parties.

That there should be a release of all politicians detained illegally by FG.

The newspaper quoted Atiku as warning “ that tensions are building up in the land.”

Member of the Committee included Cardinal John Onaiyekan, Bishop Kukah and Rev. Fr Atta Barkindo.

Atiku attended the meeting alongside the National Chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus; Director General of PDP Campaign, Dr. Bukola Saraki, Peter Obi, among others.

They told the NPC team that the was the worst in 20 years since the country returned to democratic rule.

According to them, the polls were marked by brazen rigging with no consideration to the will of the people.

    My website covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail.

    First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    thoughts before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!

Senate takes final decision on Tanko Muhammad as substantive CJN Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad 1024x576

The Senate has confirmed Justice Tanko Mohammad as the substantive Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The confirmation followed a two-hour question and answer session between the senators and Mohammad, who had been in acting capacity as CJN since January.

of the Senate, Dr Ahmad Lawan announced the confirmation after a voice at plenary on Wednesday.

NAN reports that Mohammad who entered the National Assembly complex at exactly 10:10 a.m., went into closed-door session with the lawmakers at 11:13 a.m. and left by 1.06p.m.

The new CJN took turn to provide replies to questions from the senators in areas like financial autonomy of the judiciary, concept of imprisonment and corruption in the judiciary.

He also spoke on the concept of individualism and collectivism in administration of justice as it affects criminal matters.

Muhammad spoke extensively on the roles expected of the parliament in addressing alleged rot in the judiciary.

He urged National Assembly and states Houses of Assembly to review the criminal laws in the country to effectively fight corruption.

Speaking further, he said: “Nigerian judiciary is part of the Nigerian system. Therefore, I’m not surprised if some judges are corrupt, that doesn’t mean that those judges should not be identified and dealt with.

“The most worrisome of it is that it happens at the lowest ebb of the courts. This is where the main problem arises.

“Let me say generally that that corruption inherent in the person who is corrupt and the person who is corrupted. But all of them should be made to face the music.

“I therefore urge the National Assembly and the state House of assembly to take a look at our criminal laws.

“The parliament should sanitise the society. Much as we in the judiciary want to do that, the parliament should make new laws and amend old ones,” he said.

On judicial autonomy, he said: ” We have started seeing the autonomy. But go to some states, the judiciary is still refused ordinary monthly grants to run its offices.

“It is the duty of the legislature to touch these places. To close all ends and identify all people being corrupted.

“It is my view that it is only the legislature that can put things right.I can’t go and ask or beg anybody for anything, I’m contented with what I have.”

Later in his remarks, Lawan thanked the CJN for coming to answer some questions from the Senate.

He also promised him that the 9th Senate would ensure an harmonious relationship with the judiciary.

“My Lord, thank you for coming to answer questions from members of the Senate. We are all ready to work with the judiciary.

“We must ensure that the judiciary is properly funded and remunerated. If we are asking them to live above board. We should do the right thing,” he said.

The confirmation of the CJN followed a recommendation made by the National Judicial Council (NJC) attached with his curriculum vitae distributed to the lawmakers on Tuesday.

Buhari has failed, cannot solve Nigeria’s problems – Soyinka blows hot

buhari has failed, cannot solve nigeria’s problems – soyinka blows hot Buhari has failed, cannot solve Nigeria’s problems – Soyinka blows hot Wole Soyinka 1024x576 1

Nobel laureate, Wole Soyinka, has insisted that the Muhammadu Buhari administration has failed.

According to him, the problems confronting Nigeria were beyond Buhari.

Soyinka stated this while playing host to students who paid him a visit on his 85th birthday.

The literary icon made it clear that while state governments differ in success rates, “central government has failed”.

“The problems of this nation are beyond the solution that can be offered by this government, that’s the first admission; they have to stop thinking in partisan government

“There has always been a major problem with successive governments. It’s easier on the state level to say that a particular state is definitely doing better than another state. But the central government has failed, that’s my view in the main.

“There is a minimal level which any government which has been elected to power must achieve to be considered a true representative of the people.

“Look at what’s happening today with the cattle all over the place, that’s a security issue which should never have reached this level. That singular act has resulted in hundreds of people being killed, farms were taken over; it has wiped away a lot of the positive achievements of the government.

“They need to confront this nation as a habitation of human beings where very serious issues like economy, security, health, even threats of secession come up every day and convoke at the same time, a national conference, what I call an Indaba across all section which we will all meet and debate everything, including the economy of this nation,” Soyinka said.
