NIGERIA NEWSPAPERS: TODAY'S THE PUNCH NEWSPAPER HEADLINES [13 FEBRUARY , 2018].


Below are the headlines found on The Punch Online Newspaper for today, Tuesday, 13 February, 2018.

Tue, 13 Feb 2018


At the closing of the two-day summit on national security organised by the Senate, state governors and the federal parliament have agreed to allow states to have their police.

They backed Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo who stated at the opening of the event on Thursday that state police was “the way to go.”

Participants, who included the leadership and members of the Senate, governors and service chiefs, as well as community, religious and traditional leaders, also raised the issue of restructuring and true federalism at the summit.

Strong indications emerged after the summit that some issues raised might come up as amendment bills to alter the constitution.

Speaking with journalists at the NAF Centre Abuja venue, Chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum and Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, said governors called for the decentralisation of the country’s police.

He said, “The takeaway from this summit is that the Vice-President raised some of the key discussions on that day – 17th August, 2017 – about state police. Yes, the state police issue is something that we have agreed on in 2011 and 2015 during constitution amendments.

The Benue State Police command has said that  the body of one of the officers it declared missing after an attack by Fulani herdsmen on Saturday night at the Azege-Ayilamo community in the Logo Local Government Area of the state had been found.

In a statement by the command spokesman, ASP, Moses Yamu, made available to our correspondent in Makurdi on Monday, the command lamented the death of one of the missing policemen.

Yamu stated, “He was found brutally slaughtered, with both eyes  and ears as well as nose removed. We pray that God Almighty grants him eternal rest.”



The command said that it remained committed  to its statutory  and daunting obligation of ensuring security of lives and property in the state.

The command had stated on Saturday that suspected herdsmen had ambushed a patrol team at Azege Ayilamo in the Logo council area with four of its men missing.

Two of the missing policemen were said to have been rescued on Sunday.

In a related development, suspected Fulani herdsmen, on Monday, shot and killed two officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, who were on special operations at the Guma Local Government Area of Benue State.

The incident, according to a security source, occurred at Awamye near Kasseyo village in the local government area.

The victims were said to have been ambushed by suspected Fulani herdsmen at a stream in Awanye.

A former Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Alani Akinrinade, has said that restructuring is unavoidable and inevitable for Nigeria in the face of national consensus which has coalesced around the issue.

The former Chief of Army Staff from October 1979 to April 1980, therefore, called on the Federal Government to take immediate steps towards restructuring the country in the best interest of the citizenry.


Akinrinade expressed these positions on Monday in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, while delivering a lecture, titled, ‘Restructuring and the Dawn of a new Nigeria’ as part of the activities marking the sixth anniversary of Governor Seriake Dickson.


Proponents of restructuring, who formed a panel of discussants  include, a former governor of Anambra State, Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife; President of the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, Mr. Shettima Yerima; Spokesman for Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin; and the founding President, Nigeria Oral Literature Association, Prof. Godini Darah.

While stressing the need for state police, Akinrinade particularly urged President Muhammadu Buhari to initiate a bill to unbundle the overburdened centre by removing some of the items in the current Exclusive List.

“In the last few weeks, a national consensus seems to have coalesced around the issue. Restructuring is unavoidable and inevitable for Nigeria. It is not a done deal yet; neither are the procedures and modus operandi cast in marble.

“But with the All Progressives Congress committee on the subject turning in one of many of the cardinal imperatives of restructuring report with a bold approval and the Peoples Democratic Party buying substantially into the project through its legislative caucus, a new vista of bi-partisan cooperation has been opened.

“If we cast our mind to the recent battle for restructuring in Nigeria, we see all the rich ironies of history in slow motion. Four years ago as the battle for the restructuring of the nation raged unabated, then President Goodluck Jonathan convoked a National Political Conference with the express mandate to look at the grave political issues facing Nigeria and come up with an acceptable solution.


“Given the urgency of the situation, one would have thought that the convener would have acted with express resolve once the conference turned in its report. But for reasons best known to him, Jonathan delayed and prevaricated until he was defeated in a landmark presidential election, which for the first time in the history of the nation had the opposition winning by a landslide.

“In his own case, and as if the government is a radical discontinuum, President Muhammadu Buhari would have nothing to do with the conference report. In fact, it is on record that the former infantry officer went as far as to flatly assert that he would make sure that the report ended up in a permanent cooler – the archives. This was not just a case of benign indifference but active hostility.”

The Federal High Court sitting in Wawa Cantonment, Kainji, Niger State, on Monday sentenced 35-year-old Haruna Yahaya to 15 years imprisonment for terrorism offences.

Yahaya, whose left arm and left leg are crippled, was convicted for being a member of the proscribed Boko Haram terrorist group and participating in the abduction of over 200 schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State, in 2014.
He was said to have participated in Boko Haram’s attacks in Chibok, Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State and Gabsuri town in the Damboa Local Government Area of the state.


Yahaya had on Monday pleaded guilty to the two counts preferred against him by the Federal Government, but pleaded for mercy, saying he was forcefully conscripted into the terrorist group.

Four judges of the Federal High Court are sitting in the special courts established in Kainji by the court management to fast-track the trial of over 1,000 suspects currently held in the Wawa Cantonment.

The National Human Rights Commission and the Nigerian Bar Association were on the ground to observe the proceedings.

The defendants are being prosecuted by lawyers from the Federal Ministry of Justice while they are being defended by lawyers from the Legal Aid Council.

The Monday’s proceedings which commenced at about noon were still going on as of when the report was filed at about 7.30pm.

As of the time of filing this report, over 30 cases had been heard by the four courts.

At least 20 persons, who pleaded guilty to the various crimes they were accused of had been convicted as of the time of filing this report.


They were convicted for offences mainly bordering on being members of the Boko Haram sect, giving information to the sect in support of its operations and refusing to disclose information to secure the apprehension of members of the sect to law enforcement agencies.

They were charged and convicted under various provisions of the Terrorism Prevention Act 2011 (as amended).

Others who pleaded not guilty had their cases transferred to Abuja for continuation of trial.

The OurMumuDonDo group led by popular musician, Charles Oputa a.k.a. Charly Boy, and other civil rights groups have protested against the registration of underage voters in northern Nigeria, particularly in Kano State.

The groups, therefore, called on the Independent National Electoral Commission to ensure that children are not allowed to vote in 2019.


The call came amid pictures trending on the social media showing children between the ages of eight and 15 voting during the recently concluded local government election in Kano State.

The coalition also called on INEC to ensure that the process of registration and collection of Permanent Voter Cards were not cumbersome.

Mr. Deji Adeyanju, who read a statement at the headquarters of INEC in Abuja on Monday, said if the process of registration was too difficult, many Nigerians would be discouraged and ultimately might not vote in 2019.

The letter, which was received by the Assistant Director in charge of security, Mr. J. Musa, was signed by Charly Boy, Deji Adeyanju (Concerned Nigerians); Ariyo Atoye (Coalition in Defence Of Nigerian Democracy), Bako  Usman (Campaign For Democracy) and Moses Paul (MAD Connect).

The coalition also said it was interested in working with INEC to address voter apathy and disenfranchisement “as a result of the long time practice of rigidity in the electoral process.”

The group highlighted the issue of electronic voting and the challenges of documentation and population of eligible voters, which it said needed public engagement.

“We humbly request a strategic engagement with INEC to discuss the issues identified above and other likely developments obstructing the electoral process and how we can equally be of significant help as stakeholders,” the letter read in part.

The movement stated that if necessary actions were not taken to remedy the deficiencies plaguing the electoral process, “it will be difficult to eradicate voter apathy and disenfranchisement, and even more difficult to sustain our democracy.”


However, the Kano State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Prof. Riskuwa Shehu, said INEC did not organise local government elections and so could not be blamed for any cases of underage voting.

Shehu said the voter register used for the local government election was different from the one used by INEC and promised that children would not be allowed to vote in Kano State in 2019.


He referred one of our correspondents to the Chairman of the Kano State Independent Electoral Commission, Prof. Garba Sheka, for more comment.

Efforts to speak with Sheka, however, proved abortive as he did not respond to repeated telephone calls.

Meanwhile, the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has enjoined students in tertiary institutions in the state that are 18 years and above to ensure that they have a PVC by making themselves available for voter registration at the INEC office nearest to them if they have not registered before.

Okowa gave the advice on Monday at the College of Education, Agbor during a one-day sensitisation/awareness on voter education in tertiary institutions which was organised by the Directorate of Orientation, Governor’s Office in collaboration with the COE, Agbor.

The governor, who was represented by the Information Commissioner, Mr. Patrick Ukah, disclosed that the advice had become necessary as it would enable them to make a well-informed decision on who represents them at the various levels of government.

“We will be failing in our duties if we fail to tell you of the power that you have as eligible voters; you have enormous electoral power to elect any candidate of your choice but you can only do this if you have your PVC,” Okowa stated.

While thanking the Directorate of Orientation and the COE, Agbor, for collaborating to organise the sensitisation/awareness programme on voter education, the governor implored students to put what they were taught into practice by actively exercising their franchise in a responsible manner.

Earlier in his welcome address, the Executive Assistant to the Governor on Orientation, Eugene Uzum, said the import of the sensitisation programme was to adequately enlighten students in tertiary institutions of learning about the need to have a PVC.

Uzum disclosed that the sensitisation/awareness on voter education would take place in all the tertiary institutions of learning in the state, adding that voter education was an essential ingredient needed to stimulate students’ interest in the electoral process.
