Coalition of civil Societies calls for Sack Of SP Mohammed Musa for gross Misconduct

Following several allegations of gross misconduct and breaches capable of undermining discipline and good faith amongst officers and men of the Nigeria Police, a coalition of civil societies, Nigeria Initiative For Security, NIFS, has called for sack of Mohammed Musa, a Superintendent of Police.

The coalition in a statement in Abuja, Monday, accused Musa, formerly of SPU Base 2, Lagos State, but now serving in Yobe state of undermining the police hierarchy and leaking information to the media.
In the statement signed by Odey Ochaba and Mallam Isah Usman, they noted that Musa had been queried by the police authorities via petition No. AP.105697/FS/FHQ/6 bordering on; Disobedience to Constituted Authority; Absence from Duty; Divided Loyalty; Refusal to Accept Posting; Discourteous Behaviour to the Public and, Conduct Unbecoming of a Public Officer.
“It is regrettable to note that rather than respond and await the review of his gross misconduct, SP Mohammed Musa, has continued to use his friends in the media with the intent to undermine and disrespect not just the Office of the Inspector General of Police, but the Nigeria Police Force as the primary security architecture in the country,” part of the statement reads.
The duo further noted that “it is unfortunate that an officer, who was once just a driver at the Police Service Commission will ignore and refuse to appear before the Force Disciplinary Committee, have become a danger not only to himself, but the NPF as a whole.
“Let it be known that it is compulsory for every policeman that has been issued query to appear before the committee as it serves as an avenue to explain and exonerate themselves but because SP Musa believes he is larger than life, he shunned the committee and he couldn’t be reached because he turned off all his phones.
“For the avoidance of doubt, all the DIGs as well as the Force Secretary are members of the committee,” the coalition said.
According to them, to maintain discipline and safeguard others from undertaking the perilous path, the coalition urged for the “immediate sack of SP Mohammed Musa given that his litany of woes are innumerable and such a character known to take advantage of the system should not be allowed to infect others.”

My becoming Governor is an act of God, so no one could truncate it, says Diri

Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa, has indicated that it is only God that made it possible for him to be Governor considering the unusual circumstances that threw him up as the winner of the election.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Daniel Alabrah.
The statement quoted the Governor to have spoken on Sunday when he joined other Christians in his state to offer praises to God for witnessing the first Sunday of 2021 he said people must continue to thank God for everything they own daily.
Diri, who worshipped at St. Peter’s Anglican Church in Sampou, his hometown, told the congregation that he never knew the community would produce a governor, while he was supporting the governorship aspiration of others.
He indicated that when it was time for God’s destined purpose, nobody could stop it.

He said: “Sometimes I wonder that all the time I had been supporting the governorship aspiration of others, I did not know that God had destined me, even before I was born, to be governor. So when your time comes, nobody can stop it.
“If the same God could do this for me, He will do it for you. Just be faithful, have a free mind and He will do it again and again,” he said.
The governor urged Christians to be faithful to God in order to unlock more earthly blessings, just as he called on the people of the state to always give thanks and pay less attention to their worries.
He commended the people of Bayelsa for taking out time across the state to thank God today.
“What can you offer to God other than to say ‘thank you’ to Him?

“He has the gold and silver. He also has the power, as power comes only from Him.

“I, therefore, join the rest of the people of Bayelsa to say thank you Lord for keeping us to see this first Sunday of 2021,” Diri said.

He also urged the citizens to realise that they were special in the sight of God, adding that He always manifested Himself in the affairs of the state, whenever the agents of evil tried to plunge it into darkness.

“For us in Bayelsa, we are a special people, and until we realise that we are special, we will continue to give room for darkness,” he said.

Ex Buhari’s ADC accuses him of being remote-controlled by nephew


In recent times, President Muhammadu Buhari has come under severe critisms from many sections of the country for ineptitude to govern the country, this time around his former ADC during his military regime Mustapa Jokolo has indicated that he is being remotely controlled by his nephew, Mamman Daura.
The former emir of Gwandu in a piece said the President Buhari cannot wriggle himself out of the woes the nation was going through since he has allowed himself to be criticised on every side.
He alleged that Buhari’s nephew, Mamman Daura was manipulating him, saying that the best thing is for Mamman Daura to be moved from the villa to Kaduna so that the President could have a breathing space to do what is right and just.
He said there is something fundamentally wrong for President Buhari to be ignoring wise counsel without.

He advised Buhari to dissolve his cabinet for a rejig, even as he listed those he should give attention, once they advise him.

“As for President Muhammadu Buhari, though I personally believe he is under spell and total control of the cabal led by his nephew, Malam Mamman Daura, he cannot exonerate himself from the atrocities happening in Nigeria.

“Everyone, high and low have offered wise counsel which he is turning deaf ears to. He will not only answer to the Nigerians but worse, he will answer to the divine and Supreme Judge, Almighty Allah SWT here on earth and the hereafter.

“The way he came in supported by majority of Nigerians no other leader in the past had it (17 out of 19 States in the North; 5 out of 6 States in the South West; Edo State in the South South and Imo State in the South East).

“He should kindly listen to the advices given him by such notables like Dr Junaidu Muhammad, Hajiya Najaatu Muhammad, Major General Ishola Williams, Col Abubakar Dangiwa Umar, Simeon Kolawole, Chief Duro Onabule, Dr Ahmad Gummi (when he is not too personal ) Sheik Dahiru Bauchi, Sheik Sherif Saleh, Engineer Daura, Alhaji Tijjani Zangon Daura, Sheik Yahaya Jingir and scores of others too numerous to mention.

“He should send Mamman Daura back to Kaduna, drop two thirds of his ministers, change his Security Chiefs (except DG DSS), change his Personal Staff. All Boards of Parastatals that need change should be changed.

Jokolo also lampooned former President Olusegun Obasanjo and the former Chief of Defence Staff, Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma, describing the elder statemen as “rotten eggs”, for consistently attacking the present administration.

“Recently, President Obasanjo has been relentless in his personal attacks on President Buhari even predicting that Nigeria will soon go to war.


“Recall that in 1983 these same Generals denigrated President Shagari which resulted in the 1983 Coup de tat. We have not forgotten their atrocities in Odi and Zaki Biam. Now they have Bishop Mathiew Kukah and Dr Ahmad Gummi in their sustained call to arms preaching against President Buhari.

“We will not expose their plans and treacherous ploys if they had been honourable, sincere and patriotic. But the whole plots are only self serving and not in the interest of Nigeria!

“Which rulers committed more atrocities in the history of Nigeria like the duo of Olusegun Obasanjo and T.Y Danjuma? We are tired of these rotten eggs continuously messing us up.

“While making new appointments, he should reflect Federal Character as enshrined in the Constitution of Nigeria.

“He should also initiate a Constitutional Review to reduce the preponderance of the National Assembly Members to one Senator per State and one Representative per Senatorial District.


“He should also ensure the compliance of his Executive Order whereby the State Governors should hands off Local Government and State Judiciary Funds. No State Governor should leave his State except on very dire circumstances.

“All State Governors’ Lodges must be sold & funds returned to the State Treasury. Abolish State INEC to allow people choose their representatives without the control of the Governors.

“Monitor the Judiciary and Lawyers at all levels closely and get rid of the bad eggs. Encourage InterFaith Relationship by strengthening NIREC.

“Establish a National Traditonal Rulers Council with State Council of Chiefs Chairmen as members.

“Also have a Commission to discipline the Traditional Rulers like the National Judicial Council is rather than the State Governors . Establish Zonal Presidential Liaison Offices to monitor the Federal and State Activities, to avoid embarrassments like the State Governors hoarding Palliatives, unknown to the Federal Government.

“There should also be Committees at Federal, State and Local Governments Levels charged with moral discipline and prayers for Almighty God’s Salvation and Divine Intervention. May Almighty God defend, protect, guide Nigeria and Nigerians, amen.”
