OAU sex scandal exposes Buhari-Saraki impotence So, whenever her daughter took me to her room, everyone thought her gesture was in line with the family’s love. Aunty Iyabo would lock me up in her room, strip naked and do unprintable things with me. I was too young and naïve to know there was a difference between her strange fantasy and the washing of plates or sweeping. At times, she would get me under the tap in the bathroom, carry and press me insanely to her naked body. Later in her room, she would put my tiny hands to every part of her body and I would watch her wriggle. For some minutes, it could be fun to me – watching this ‘big aunty’ playing with a little me, covering us up with a huge blanket as she tickled, giggled and laughed. After a while, I would lose interest in the groping, telling my big guest I wanted out, but she would beg with candies and biscuits and place my head on her bosom, rocking me with pleas and promises. I decided to open up on this personal experience because parents, guardians and the society largely believe that only female children need to be protected against sex predators. In my own case, though I found it strange, I didn’t even know what the aunty was doing wasn’t good, hence I didn’t deem it fit to report. Aunty Iyabo was a friend to my mum’s youngest sister, who lived with us.

Women groups across Nigeria are asking for the seat of the Vice President, they request that the number 2 highest ranking seat in the country, should be reserved for women, in the coming 2019 General Election.
They made this call when they visited president Buhari at Aso Rock, earlier last week.
What are your thoughts?
The Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari not to address Nigerians on the occasion of the 2018 Democracy Day Tuesday. In a statement Sunday night by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said the government had violated all tenets of democracy, trampled on citizens’ rights and should not be associated with democracy under any guise whatsoever.
The former ruling party noted that Nigerians had become frustrated and despondent by the magnitude of lies and deception told by the Buhari-led APC government and would prefer to spend the next twelve months contending with such past deceptions than fresh falsification. “Indeed, this administration should not come close to the emblem of democracy, as such would be an unpardonable spat on the faces of millions of suppressed Nigerians and the graves of victims of extra-judicial executions under this administration, as catalogued by international bodies including, Transparency International (TI), Amnesty International (AI) and even the United States Department of State,” the statement read. “Instead of celebrating Democracy, Nigerians are today groaning in regret for electing an administration that has completely turned against them, engaging in clampdown with utmost impunity, setting aside our constitutional provisions and desecrating all democratic established institutions.” The Federal Government last week declared Tuesday May 29 a public holiday to celebrate this year’s Democracy Day where the president traditionally addresses the nation.
A myriad of issues has clouded the polity in the lead up to next year’s general elections, particularly with fears of a crackdown on the opposition.
Buhari however maintains that his administration has done the most, with least resources, a claim dismissed by the opposition.
The war of words between the President Muhammadu Buhari and ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo continued Sunday with the presidency saying the Peoples Democratic Party “toppled” elected state governments using the police and the secret service during the former leader.
In an article to commemorate the third anniversary of the Buhari Presidency last night, Senior Special Assistant to President Muhamadu Buhari on Media and Publicity Garba Shehu recalled how former Governors Joshua Dariye (Plateau), Rashidi Ladoja (Oyo) and Peter Obi (Anambra) were removed for reasons not noble, TheNation writes. “It took an insider collaboration to thwart the unseating of Governor (Chris) Ngige (of Anambra State) by a powerful thug sponsored by the PDP administration,” Shehu alleged. “The parliament at the centre seized the law-making powers of the Rivers State House of Assembly as a way to save Governor Rotimi Amaechi, the then chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, from impeachment by the PDP presidency. “A five-man legislature met at 6:00 am and ‘impeached’ Governor Dariye in Plateau; 18 members out of 32 removed Governor Ladoja of Oyo from office; in Anambra, APGA’s Governor Obi was equally impeached at 5:00 a.m. by members who did not meet the two-thirds required by the constitution. His offence was that he refused to inflate the state’s budget. The lawmakers had reportedly met with representatives of the President in Asaba, Delta State and then accompanied to Awka by heavy security provided by the police Mobile Unit. “The PDP President at that time had reportedly told Obi to forget re-election in 2007 if he did not join the PDP because he (the President) would not support a non-PDP member.” Shehu touched on Ekiti, where Governor Ayodele Fayose in his first term was removed with a State-of-Emergency declared. “He appointed Brig-Gen. Adetunji Olurin (rtd) as the sole administrator of the state on October 19, 2006. In an earlier incident in Anambra, it took an insider collaboration to thwart the unseating of Governor Ngige by a powerful thug sponsored by the PDP administration.”
Is this the perfect time to say #ourmumudondo ? .
Scores of supporters gathered in front of the Federal High court, Kano on Thursday, to offer a special prayer against the EFCC and President Buhari because former Governor of Kano and Education Minister, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau was arraigned over N950m campaign fund. .
It almost turned violent and the police had to use tear gas canisters to disperse the crowd.
[Buhari's 3 years- My take]
I can understand the anger with this Buhari administration given that many believe that they are generally slow to act on issues starting from the very beginning with the selection of the cabinet members to their tobmne deafness to the call to tackle the fulani herdsmen chaos. The corruption fight has also been perceived as selective. Well, the people have got the right to be furious with the administration given the general let down by previous leaders over the years. But on the other hand, taking a step back and really analyzing what has happened over the years in this country, is the assessment of this government given that it inherited a sack of rot from past leaders? If anyone thought things would take a 360 turn in just 3 years, then we would been trying to separate ourselves from reality. The Nigerian problem, mainly corruption, has eaten deep into the fabrics of the nation and so, it will fight back hard! I believe the administration has made progress in the fight against corruption; in the building of new roads and other mediums of transportations; Empowerment of the rural dwellers; Encouraging Agricultural development; they are making progress in building our institutions and trying to improve accountability. Is it enough? Absolutely not!

President Buhari Hosts Wives Of 36 State Governors
President Buhari has commended the wives of Governors for the various humanitarian activities they carry out in their states. He made the commendation last night when they paid him a visit under the auspices of the Northern and Southern Governors Wives Forum at the Presidential Villa on Saturday 26th May, 2018.
President Buhari assured the governors’ wives of his support and assured them that he would canvass more moral and financial support for them.
President Buhari also encouraged them to interface with Central Bank of Nigeria and Federal Ministry of Agriculture over new and existing opportunities that women farmers and entrepreneurs can take advantage of.
The wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, speaking at the occasion, underscored the complementary role that wives of Governors play in supporting the programmes and policies of their husbands, stressing the need for the governors to encourage them. She highlighted areas where efforts are more pronounced as girl-child education, child abuse, women and youth empowerment and health promotion.
Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has vowed never to criticise President Muhammadu Buhari to prove that he was still in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Mr Umahi made the declaration on Saturday night in Abakaliki during a media chat and dinner he organised for journalists as part of the 2018 Democracy Day celebrations.
The PDP governor noted that his decision was a matter of principle, stressing that Mr Buhari remained his only boss. “I have left all those issues to political parties not because the president is doing everything right but because he is not God. “He might not be doing everything 100 per cent but it is not my duty to castigate my boss and will only face my duties. “It is also not my duty to write petitions about the past administration in the state and I am focused towards my duties as child of God who has a calling and is committed,” he said.
On corruption, the governor noted that it was not a party affair but an issue that has to do with the individual engaging in it. “The Bible says that with the fear of God, men depart from evil and without effective tackling of corruption, Nigeria will never develop. “It is not an issue concerned with the PDP and if those who decamped from the party to the country’s ruling party says it is corrupt, then they have infected their new party with corruption,” he said.
