While the nation is mourning the gruesome killing of about 43 rice farmers by the dreaded Boko haram sect, a former minister in the Obasanjo government and former world bank vice president, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili has made some stern demands on Buhari’s health status.
As seen on her Twitter page, the fmr minister urged the Federal government to commence a verified health check on the president.
According to the fmr minister commonly called “madam due process”, she said that at this stage and depth of fragility of the Nigeria-State, it was very important that the privacy surrounding some presidential rights should give ground to the citizens right to know the state of health of the president, Muhammed Buhari
She added that with the current situation in the country, the citizens must really assess the physical or mental capability of the president to carry on the duties of the office.
On how to make this work, she advised the formation of an Independent Panel to be formed by citizens who will, in turn, help make the critical medical assessment of the state of mind and body of president Buhari.
Ever since the killings were announced, there have been quite a number of agitations from different quarters calling not he president to fire his service chiefs, others have called for the president’s resignation adding that the killings have formally announced a large scale terrorism which is waiting to explode in the north.
According to pictures and witnesses, the farmers were beheaded and their heads placed on their bodies.
The execution styled killings has once again, put fear and great apprehension in the region.
President Buhari, speaking through his media aide, Garba Shehu had expressed shock at the killings and even mentioned that he had given the military all they needed to exterminate the insurgents.
Nigerians however, feel differently as the citizens have called on the president to for once, stand up and act as the commander in chief before things get out of hand.

An incident was reported to have occurred, which took place in a wedding venue. From what was said about the incident, it happened that a couple was holding their wedding and the pastor was about joining them together when another lady stormed the wedding.
While she came and was saying things relating to the groom, she was totally ignored as the pastor kept on with what he was doing. This didn’t stop the lady from saying that she is pregnant for the groom.
The groom also couldn’t utter a word or even turn around to see the lady, probably because she must have been saying the truth. However, another lady who was reported to be the bride’s daughter ran towards the pregnant lady as she screamed angrily at her for trying to disrupt her mum’s wedding.

The Senator representing Ondo South Senatorial District Nicholas Tofowomo has urged state governors in Nigeria to cut their security votes into two and deploy them towards addressing rising unemployment in the country.
Tofowomo made the call at the end of a seven-day solar power empowerment programme, as one of his 2020 constituency projects, for more than 100 youth in Ondo South Senatorial District in Ile-Oluji on Sunday.
“Majority of the people who demonstrated during the #EndSARS protests were youth and it was because they don’t have jobs. If you have an office to go to, you will not be demonstrating here and there.
“Governors are earning about N700 million each as security votes monthly. If half of this money can go towards developing youths, in one to two years, they would have spent 2 to 3 billion naira developing youths,” he said.
Tofowomo also said he wanted the federal government to create more skills acquisition centres to address the menace of unemployment in the country.
The youth were carefully selected from the six local government areas through a constituency project, facilitated by Sen. Nicholas Tofowomo. The empowerment programme was supervised by officials of the National Centre for Hydropower Research and Development, an agency under the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology.
He said, “government is not doing enough in terms of creating opportunities. Nigeria is producing an average of 50,000 graduates every year and about 40,000 of them are unemployed.
“By the time you add it up for 10 years, that is about 400,000 graduates going around without jobs.
“Government should create centres to develop skills. Let us organise our youth and turn them into professionals. If the government organises such training every two months, the lives of our youth will change.”
Tofowomo said that the programme was put together to equip both employed and unemployed youth with the necessary knowledge on the need to embrace renewable/green energy, as an alternative to hydro or gas-powered electricity.
This, he said, would ensure that the trained youth tackle epileptic power supply that was now synonymous with Ondo South Senatorial District, especially in Ilaje, Ese-Odo, and other coastal areas of the state.
The lead consultant for the project, Rotimi Eniasoro, said the participants were exposed to the importance of solar systems and the advantages of renewable energy over other power sources.
Eniasoro said that the youth were also given special training on a business angle to solar system installations and how to repair and trouble-shoot solar inverters and other equipment.
“About 100 youths have been trained on how to handle the solar installation. I am confident that after this, they will become employers of labour,” he said.
The high point of the event was the presentation of cash grants to the participants to enable them to set up their own businesses.
The National Association of Seadogs- Pyrates Confraternity has demanded the sack of Service Chiefs aftermath the killing of 43 rice farmers by Boko Haram insurgents at Zabarmari in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State.
The NAS Capoon, Mr Abiola Owoaje in a statement ‘Terrorists Massacre of 43 Zabarmari Rice Farmers’ described the incident as “shocking and saddening” adding that “the latest in a seemingly endless cycle of murders in the north east especially, and in other parts of Nigeria, represents one of the most barbaric mass executions since the beginning of the insurgency”
According to him “the situation is increasingly becoming one of despair, with no solution in sight as swathes of territory are daily coming under the control of marauding Boko Haram terrorists and other sundry armed bandits.”
While calling on the Nigerian authorities to “redouble their efforts and be more creative by introducing a revised and comprehensive security strategy in order to assert the sanctity of the lives of our compatriots, and preserve the nation’s territorial integrity” he said it is obvious that the current strategy is not working.
The statement reads in part “In that light, it is exigent that the President Muhammad Buhari administration summons the required political will to change the current Service Chiefs with new determined and purposeful military leadership. The selection should be, strictly, on the basis of professional competence, that would bring in fresh ideas and tactics, especially on intelligence gathering, to help curb the travesty that the handling of the Boko Haram insurgency has become. In the same vein, more concerted effort must be made to address the root causes of the insurgency which mainly concerns the lack of strategic human development programs and opportunities.
“The Federal Government of Nigeria is reminded of its constitutional obligations to protect the lives and properties of Nigerians. The boisterous rhetoric of the government in the face of its continued failure in fulfilling its most important obligations to Nigerians is no more acceptable. Excuses and condolences can no more be the fulcrum of government’s response to the wanton loss of lives and property as has been witnessed in the North-East, North-West, and other parts of Nigeria in recent times.
“Considering the increasingly devastating regional scale of Boko Haram’s operations and activities, we urge Government to seek the support of friends of Nigeria towards assisting our efforts in ridding our nation and region of this violent infliction, seemingly rooted in a worrying confluence of domestic theocratic bigotry and regional terrorism.
“We urge all Nigerians to remain resolute in defiance of these terrorists, their sponsors and collaborators. We must be united in advocating and acting for the safety and security of all Nigerians across the geopolitical delineation of our country. To this extent, the innocent blood of the 43 rice farmers of Zabarmari, must compel national empathy and unify our voices in resolutely demanding: #SecureNorth! Our collective will shall prevail.”
A mathematics teacher with Elihans College, Isawo, Ikorodu, Lagos State, who allegedly beat one of his students to death is still at large four days after he committed the crime.
Head of Public Affairs Unit of Lagos State Ministry of Education, Mr Kayode Abayomi, said this on Sunday when Tribune Online asked for an update over the incident.
The teacher, who is identified simply as Mr Emma reportedly beat Master Boluwatife Omelaja to death last Thursday, November 26 within the school premises because he couldn’t answer a mathematics question he was asked correctly.
Tribune Online gathered that it was the deceased’s sibling, Lateef Omelaja, who is also a student of the privately-owned school that later opened up on the incident at home as the school authorities had reportedly lied to the family when they brought his body home that he slumped and died in class so as to cover up the atrocity.
It was also gathered that when Boluwatife’s body was brought home in the school’s bus by the school proprietress and principal that the said teacher accompanied them without knowing the real news nor his role in the death of the boy whose body was buried a few hours later according to Muslim’s rite.
And since then, the teacher has been at large.
Mr Kayode, however, said investigations have already begun with the Office of Education Quality Assurance for the state handling the matter on behalf of the state government.
Tribune Online contacted the Director-General of the office, Mrs Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, on phone, but she responded by sending SMS that she could not talk at that time and SMS sent back to her for an update on the incident was not responded to till the time of filing the report.
