Below are the headlines found on The Nation Online Newspaper for today, Saturday, 3rd February, 2018.

Sat, 03 Feb 2018
The recent open letter by former President Olusegun Obasanjo  to President Muhammadu Buhari to decline seeking reelection next year is all politics, National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, declared yesterday.

Tinubu told reporters in Owerri,Imo State ,that Obasanjo could have conveyed his opinion to Buhari privately.

The former Lagos State governor, in company with the pioneer National Chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande, was in the Imo State capital on his way to Awka, Anambra State, to attend the funeral of Second Republic Vice President Alex Ekwueme.



He also said the APC would respond at the appropriate time to the emergence of the Coalition for Nigeria being promoted by Obasanjo.


Tinubu said  Obasanjo ought to have exploited a better way of communicating his observations about the Buhari  administration other than his open letter if  he was not politically motivated.

He said: ” I think Obasanjo was playing politics with his public letter. That’s all I see.

“He could have used other means; he met him (Buhari) in the AU (Africa Union) too.

“He has a way of discussing privately, but the letter is being responded to by the government.

“Obasanjo wrote it about the government. It is a very good awareness on his part and they are both (Obasanjo and Buhari) from the same background.

“I believe that is the doctrine of military officers (retired) because he has unrestricted access to the President, either through the Council of State or by any other means that he needs to see the current president privately and he was his junior in the army.”


The APC leader then said jokingly that the letter was not written to him.

In the Coalition for Nigeria, Tinubu said it was still too early to respond to the development,

The APC, he said, would  respond to the emergence of the coalition  at the “appropriate time ” .

His words:  “The appropriate time is not now for response on the Coalition Movement but we are in a democracy.

“We are in a country that is a signatory to the Charter of the United Nation  which guarantees free movement, free association and free speech.”


On the reason for his visit, he said: “The governor (Rochas Okorocha)  is a very good friend and the government that is here is our government, the APC government.

“We are here to pay final respect to the gentleman and nationalist, Alex  Ekwueme.”

Second Republic vice president,Dr. Alex Ekwueme, took his final exit at exactly 2.40pm yesterday in his home town, Oko in Orumba North Local Government area of Anambra State.

He was laid to rest in his expansive compound after a funeral service at St John The Divine Church, Oko, before a large number of mourners from all walks of life led by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.


Osinbajo, head of the federal government delegation to the event, announced the renaming of the Federal University, Ndufu Alike,  Ikwo in Ebonyi State after the departed politician.

He said the decision was in recognition of Ekwueme’s selfless service to the country.


The former VP, Osinbajo said, practiced principles of personal sacrifice for others and would be remembered for many things not only by the people of the Southeast,  but the entire country.

The first son of the late politician, Pastor Goodheart Obi Ekwueme, thanked the federal government for the gesture and for making the burial a memorable one.

But he asked for more,a veiled reference to the deceased’s often repeated request for the upgrading of the Federal Polytecnic in Oko to a university of technology.

Preaching at the service, the Primate of the Church of Nigeria, the Most Rev Nicholas Okoh, said what the country needed to move forward was integrity in governance with its allied products of honesty, reliability.

Okoh, who led over 50 Bishops and over 100 other clerics, said if the new breed politicians could behave like Ekwueme, that the country would be a better place for everyone.

“What we need in Nigeria is integrity and its allied products,” he said.


“If you are in politics and you do it without it, you will be embarrassed and if you are in business without it, you will collapse.

“If we must rebuild Nigeria, we must bring back integrity into the system and it’s allied forces.

“Is it not a shame that countries like Rwanda, Ghana, Kenya just to mention a few are now greater than Nigeria?’

He urged rapists, kidnappers, ritual killers, cultist and selfish politicians to repent.

Former Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, in a tribute said  Ekwueme was not the  typical Nigerian politician.

Anyaoku, a close friend of the deceased, said  Ekwueme had left a remarkable legacy in three key areas-national and international service, politics and philanthropy.

He said:”Alegi (his nickname for Alex Ekwueme) ,  thank you for your royal legacies to our politicians and the citizens of this country “

Governor    Willie Obiano of Anambra State thanked President Muhammadu Buhari and the South east governors for their dedication in making sure that Ekwueme got a befitting burial.

The presence of All Progressives Congress (APC) stalwart, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, former President Goodluck Jonathan and former Vice President,  Namadi Sambo, at the funeral, drew a loud ovation from the massive crowd.



Also in attendance were Governors Dave Umahi (Ebonyi), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu), Rochas Okorocha (Imo), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia),Akinwumi Ambode (Lagos),and Ibrahim Dankwambo (Gombe),as well as  a former Chief of  General Staff,Commodore Ebitu Ukiwe,   national chairman of the APC,  Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, and his AGPA counterpart,  Dr. Victor Oye.

Others were :former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan; Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige; Minister of   Science and Technology,  Dr Ogbonnaya Onu;Minister of  Agriculture,  Chief Audu Ogbe;  former governors Sam Egwu (Ebonyi), James Ibori (Delta),  and  Bisi Akande (Osun); former chief of naval staff, Rear Admiral Allison Madueke;  Senator  Joy Emodi; Prof Jerry Gana; former Governor of Abia state, Senator  TA Orji, and   Senator  Jim Nwobodo.

Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, yesterday identified the controversial anti-open grazing laws in Benue and Taraba states as the source of the unending crisis in the two middle belt states.



The police boss told the Senate joint Committee on Police Affairs and National Intelligence that the enactment of the laws against the opposition of herdsmen was responsible for the problem in the states.

Idris appeared before the joint committee in camera following the directive of the Senate in plenary that he should be summoned to explain why he failed to comply with the mandate of the upper chamber to apprehend perpetrators of the January 1st mayhem in Benue state.

Herdsmen suspected to be Fulani swooped on two Benue communities on New Year Day and killed not less than 73 persons.


Chairman, Senate Committee on Police Affairs, Senator Abu Ibrahim, refused to brief reporters after the closed door interface with the IGP.

Ibrahim insisted that he would only report back to the Senate as directed.

A source close to the committee, however, said that Idris was categorical that the anti-open grazing laws in Benue and Taraba should be blamed for the continuing killings in the states.

The source also said that the IGP told the committee that a number of arrests have been made.

The police boss was said to have told the committee that over 120 people have bee arrested as those behind the crisis in the states.


Asked whether the IGP wanted the laws scrapped, the source noted that Idris was not categorical on the issue of scrapping the laws in the two states.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has filed a two-count charge against the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal, Danladi Yakubu Umar, in connection with an alleged N10million bribery scam.



Umar reportedly demanded for the bribe from a former Comptroller of Customs, Rasheed Owolabi Taiwo.

Umar is due to face trial in the High Court of Federal Capital Territory.

In the charge sheet, marked CR/109/18, the CCT chairman was alleged to have collected N1.8million bribe, suspected to be part of the N10million, through his Personal Assistant, Ali Gambo Abdullahi.


The suspect will be prosecuted by Festus Keyamo (SAN), on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The charges read in part: “That you, Danladi Yakubu Umar, being the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal and presiding over a case with Charge No. CCT/ABJ/03/12, involving one Rasheed Owolabi Taiwo, sometime in 2012, at Abuja, within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court did ask for the sum of N10million  from the said Rasheed Owolabi Taiwo, for a favour to be afterwards shown to him in relation to the pending Charge (No. CCT/ABJ/03/12) in discharge of your official duties and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 12(1) (a) & (b) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2003.

“That you, Danladi Yakubu Umar, being the Chairman of the Code of Conduct Tribunal and presiding over a case with Charge No. CCT/ABJ/03/12, involving one Rasheed Owolabi Taiwo, sometime in 2012, at Abuja, within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court did receive the sum of N1,8million from the said Rasheed Owolabi Taiwo, through your Personal Assistant by name Alhaji Gambo Abdullahi, for a favour to be afterwards shown to him in relation to the pending Charge (No. CCT/ABJ/03/12) in discharge of your official duties and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 12(1) (a) & (b) of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2003.

With five witnesses already lined up, the EFCC said it would rely on a petition dated 20th June, 2013, by Rasheed O. Taiwo; the statement of the CCT chairman; the Zenith Bank Statement of Taiwo Rasheed Owolabi.; the Zenith Bank Statement of Ali Gambo Abdullahi and a copy of Zenith Bank Cheque of Taiwo Rasheed Owolabi; a copy of Zenith Bank Cheque of Ali Gambo Abdullahi and all processes and documents in Charge No. CCT/ABJ/03/12.

The CCT chairman allegedly asked for the bribe from Taiwo, who was a retired Comptroller of Customs.

The ex-Customs officer was arraigned before the tribunal in Suit CCT/ABJ/03/12 for alleged failure to declare his assets.


But the judge was alleged to have asked for the bribe to throw away the case.

The ex-Customs Officer allegedly played along when he paid N1.8million out of the N10million bribe cash into the account of the Personal Assistant to the judge, Ali Gambo Abdullahi.



It was learnt that Ali Gambo Abdullahi, had appeared before EFCC more than 20 times since 2012 on the matter.

It was not clear what accounted for the charges against the CCT chairman because the EFCC had claimed that the allegations against him were “insufficient” to establish a prima facie case.

But in 2016, the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki asked the CCT chairman to disqualify himself from proceeding with his trial.
