Nigerian Youths Take Things For Granted !!! - President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari says he has no plan to groom a successor for the 2023 presidential election and accused Nigerian youths of taking things for granted.

The president stated this while reacting to one of the requests made by the members of progressives in academics, who visited him at the State House, Abuja on Tuesday.

The spokesperson for the group, Dr. Bolariwa Bolaji, had earlier urged the president to groom a successor, who will take over in 2023.
Bolaji said: “We are delighted having you and in another four years you would want to go and rest – then who takes over from you? We are suggesting that you bring vibrant youths among people who have shown interest, bring them in so that you start saddling them with responsibilities and you will be watching over these next four years so that when you want to leave the circle, you would have vibrant youths to hand over to.

“This is one of the ways the gains of this government can be made to be continues – so that there…

#PrayforNigeria : Boko Haram Kills Many In Jakana In Fresh Borno Attack

Many villagers were believed to have been killed in an attack by Boko Haram insurgents on Jakana in Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State last night, sources within the civilian joint task force said. The incident was said to have occurred at 6.30pm along the Maiduguri- Kano Road. The insurgents, who drove in six gun trucks, were reportedly shooting sporadically.

The attackers were also said to have carted away foodstuffs. Sources alleged that there was no military and police presence in the village at the time the terrorists struck, saying troops and policemen had withdrawn from the village two days earlier.

A resident, Babagana Adam, told our correspondent that the insurgents arrived at the village in six military utility vehicles mounted with anti-aircraft guns. “We thought the troops had returned because they have everything similar with soldiers until when they started shouting ‘Allah Alkar’, then everyone fled the town, they operated freely, they were brea…

Poor Attitude to work of Some #NigerianDoctors revealed :Governor Zulum's Late Night Visit To Hospitals met no single doctor out of 10 of them expected to be on duty

At around 1:00 o'clock in the night Governor Babagana Umara Zulum pays an unscheduled visit to Umaru Shehu Ultra Modern Hospital as well as the State Specialist Hospital Maiduguri. Unfortunately at Umaru Shehu the Gov. Could not find a single medical Doctor on duty, as a result of their absence the Gov  had to place a call to all the 10 medical Doctors on call, but none of them answered the call not knowing it was the Gov. That was calling.

He went round all the wards to see the situations of the patients and later requested for the hospital's staff pay book and made role call.

The Governor also paid a similar visit to the State Specialist Hospital, unlike Umaru Shehu some few medical Doctors were on duty at the Specialist Hospital when he arrived.

However, the Governor was not satisfied by the quality of services rendered at both Hospitals.

#70yearsLater - Exonerated After Execution: Judge Tosses Teen's Murder Conviction

14-year-old executed in 1944 could get new trial Seventy years after South Carolina executed a 14-year-old boy so small he sat on a book in the electric chair, a circuit court judge threw out his murder conviction. On Wednesday morning, Judge Carmen Mullins vacated the decision against George Stinney Jr., a black teen who was convicted of beating two young white girls to death in the small town of Alcolu in 1944. Civil rights advocates have spent years trying to get the case reopened, arguing that Stinney’s confession was coerced. At the time of his arrest, Stinney weighed just 95 pounds. Officials said Stinney had admitted beating the girls, 11 and 8 years old, with a railroad spike. In a 2009 affidavit, Stinney’s sister said she had been with him on the day of the murders and he could not have committed them.
