Why all the court cases in our traditional institutions?

Rubbish Nonsense:
Virtually every traditional stool in Plateau State today is faced with one litigation (court case) or the other.
No one even in the traditional circle believes failure is his.
As a matter of fact, they will all tell you they have been anointed divinely or they had seen visions.
This brings the question then: if God or whosoever has chosen you especially when such a one is a supreme supernatural being, why not take the matter to him rather than the courts?
And for you who have cheated your way to that stool, enjoy it while it lasts. For no kingdom foun ded on lies and deception ever thrives. In fact, curses are upon you and your unborn generations if you don't repent. Read and understand the scriptures and other events in history.

Rubbish Nonsense: Plateau First, Not Individuals or Parties

Gov. Solomon Lar may have been more concerned with inclusive governance and socio-cultural development but less of human capital development.

Tapgun may have prioritized unity but without the protection of state wealth,

Gov. Dariye may have prioritized human capital development also without protecting state resources and promoting staff welfare.

Gov. Jang may have done well with infrastructural development excluding unity, welfare and human capital development.
Lalong may have prioritized or be prioritizing peace and staff welfare development with less of unity or human capital development.

However, each of them has and is still doing great in the interest of the state. The greatest among them perhaps is the one that doesn't undermine the efforts or integrity of the other.

Nigerian securities might first spark civil war in Nigeria and it would begin with inter-agency battles if care is not taken

With the way some security personnel behave in this country, if the professional ones among them don't rise to counter the bad image of theirs being portrayed, civil war fit happen oo and na among them e go be.
In 2012, I remember STF personnel in Jos north torturing a young man to death for driving in a wrong lane.
Same year, my cousin was tortured by Policemen from the Anglo Division in Jos for using a cellphone near them during a civil operation to mob up motorcycles from ...Jos.
Around the same time a youngman was killed in Riyom for sharing a girlfriend with a security guy just as another in Nasarawa.
In 2015 or so, a youngman was shot by DSS men in Hamaz for an offense that still can't be ascertained.
A similar incident occurred around the same area as reported but this time involving the killing of a military personnel dressed in mufti by STF, that was late last year.
The latest of such indiscriminate acts is the killing of another soldier in Kano by men of the DSS after a misunderstanding or so. He was equally in mufti.
Now I remember several instances of security to security clashes in Jos between 2014 and 2016.
This fit occur in a monumentally devastating manner if the unprofessional personnel who only go into the force in search of jobs or undeserved respect or even vendetta are flushed.
Thank God the military in Portharcourt recently convicted one of its men for allegedly assaulting a Nollywood actress.
The efforts must be sustained and replicated in all the other agencies to avoid the dreaded.

Alh. Sanusi and the One Wife Law

So the Emir if Kano, Alh. Sanusi is considering a law to limit marriages to one wife per man in the State.
If only this was long thought of and embraced by all especially in the far north, the problem of overpopulation which results in unhealthy competition thus giving room for poverty, hunger and insurgency would have long been checked.
Perhaps our own Gbong Gwom Jos should consider same. Enough of many marriages and child births without the economic capacity to cater for th...em.

When it comes to the dirty jobs, na Christians dem deh use for Aso rock abi?

When it was time to defend the shifting of Aso Rock Chapel, it was Pastor Osibanjo that was used. When it also came to defend the new petroleum pricing regime, it was Osibanjo.
When there arose controversies on the President's style of appointments, it was Femi Adeshina and Ita Enang that were used for the defense.
Similarly, when it was time to explain the grazing reserve policy, it was Audu Ogbe that was used.
Now again, despite being the Junior media aide to Sani Shehu, Femi Adeshina is the one constantly being used to present and defend issues regarding the President's health even to defend Ademola's 500K saga.

How many less controversial issues have these people been used to speak on?
Is anybody seeing what I'm seeing?

Lai Mohammed again? N650K?

Isn't Alh. Lai Mohammed just the best Minister Nigeria has ever had?
In 2012, Plateau State government nearly closed a Ministry for generating less than N10million as IGR in a year.
Today however, an entire Federal Ministry, the Ministry for Information and culture, invariably two Ministries coming together as one generating N650,000 as IGR in a year.
And Lai Mohammed has the guts to say the Ministry wasn't designed to generate revenue? Was it designed to split the revenue or fill a vacuum only?
This Ministry has some of the best potentials in Nigeria - the culture and entertainment (mother tourism) sector. If you lack ideas on how to make the best of it, why not ask?
You are not even ashamed. What happened to all the Hollywood, Music etc that are somewhat top among their peers?
Isn't cultural imperialism or better still marketing that the likes of India and Philippines are dominating our airwaves with that our people now pay everyday to watch them on Zworld, Telemundo etc?
U deh produce 20 times less than you consume in a week and u no deh shame? Last year no be 10million you apply go China for just a week? and una deh fight poverty and financial mismanagement?
How much NCC, NTA, FRCN, NAN deh charge as subscription fees and others?
Sir, I am Masara Kim Usman and I want to personally rubbish your nonsense. Apologise oo

Rubbish Nonsense: You wanna die for your boss who wouldn't do same for you?

One of the reasons a young msn will fight or even attack me for speaking against his political icon or god father is that he or she fears that if the politician concerned loses their position as a result of my criticism, they (youth) would equally lose whatever they benefit from them.

However, If I write to say the politician who is supposed to attract a road project to your community has failed, and you openly harass me for saying such, what message would you be sending to him other than that which says you have no such needs?

And if you succeed in telling him you have no such needs and he continues without doing it till he leaves office, who is the loser?

Make una deh think well as una deh fight for una ogas.

Rubbish Nonsense: The Now Known ‘Unknown Gunmen’ in Southern Kaduna

By Masara Kim

When it was reported last year that some high valued mineral deposits had been discovered in parts of Southern Kaduna, many critical minds began foreseeing the possibility of a dead end to the quest for peace in the troubled Southern Kaduna region.

This is perhaps not unconnected to the fact that most areas that have been found to be rich in minerals have often experienced one form of conflict or the oth
picture source unavailable
er. Jos for instance started as a mining community. Till date, the city has not recovered from the upheavals of the recent past. The Niger Delta is yet another region just as many other oil-rich areas of the world.

In 2015, many including John Campbell, senior fellow for Africa Studies and former U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria, contemplated the possibility of the Middle-Belt crisis being connected to resource control. In particular, desertification in the north and erosion among others in the south were thought to be pushing people towards the Middle-Belt thus exerting undue pressure on the region.

The Southern Kaduna crisis which began gaining popularity in late 2015 followed many similar land resource related conflicts in parts of Plateau, Nasarawa, Benue and a host of other States in the Middle-Belt. Just like the aforementioned States, the Southern Kaduna killings were often reported to have been carried out by unknown gunmen.

Even when all fingers pointed towards Fulani herdsmen with more daring evidences being revealed, hardly were any of the influential people among the Muslim population in Nigeria willing to admit it was Fulani herdsmen that were behind the attacks.

In fact, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, in July 2016 claimed that herdsmen carrying guns and killing people are foreign terrorists and not necessarily Fulani. However, soon before we knew it, a number of Fulani armed men were in the news reportedly agreeing to maintain peace.

Again, on the 16th of August, 2016, a chieftain of Kaduna state Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Dr.Haruna Usman, said that the sacking of Ninte, and other villages, in Jema’aLocal Government, was in response to the killing of a Fulani ardo in Ninte.

Similarly, the Jema’a Foundation, Miyetti Allah and Mobgal Fulbe Development Association in another Press Conference in Kaduna on November 7, 2016 made statements that suggested Fulani and Hausa Muslims were behind the ethnic cleansing and destruction of villages in Southern Kaduna.

In their claims, they reportedly said the attacks were necessary to entrench Muslims’ rights to practice Islam, alleging they were being marginalized in Southern Kaduna. It didn’t stop there. On the 31st of December, 2016, Dr. Ibrahim Abdullahi, the Assistant National Secretary of Miyetti Allah also echoed the same position, that the Fulani were carrying out reprisal killings.

Payment of Ransom to Fulani attackers by Elrufai

Until then however, Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State was quoted as saying he had paid some Fulani herdsmen identified to have been behind the killings in Southern Kaduna in order to appease them to stop the attacks.

One would have thought bringing them to justice was the best thing but of course as one of the reports quotes him as saying, he is a Fulani like them and has no problem paying compensations for cattle lost during the 2011 post-election crises. In any case, the compensations were paid to the supposed foreigners who were on a ‘pay-back’ mission in Nigeria. However, the killings never stopped. Meanwhile he had said they had accepted his terms and agreed to let go.

El-rufai was all along quiet on the issues just as President Buhari. Buhari had in his 2016 Independence speech acknowledged the reality of the farmer-herdsmen crises, saying, “This Administration is firmly resolved to tackle these challenges and to defeat them.”

Instead of living up to his words, he now claims he is silent because Governor El-rufai was on top of the situation in the state which therefore didn’t call for his interference. Meanwhile, he had in April 2016 directed a crackdown on Fulani terrorists by security Chiefs. That was after the attacks spread to Southern Nigeria’s Enugu State. One wonders if the President didn’t know about Governors existing and/or working in Enugu and Benue.

El-rufai on the other hand broke his silence when the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and a host of others began calling on citizens of the affected region to defend themselves. To him, self-defense is hate speech.

Buhari and El-rufai are however not the only leaders and/or influential people whose comments condemning the attacks would have gone a long way in stemming the crisis in that region. Such like the Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), National Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) as well as the Council of Imams and Ulama of Kaduna State are equally highly influential parties.


However, while the National Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) had last year while reacting to a bill that seeks to protect the interests of Christians in Nigeria said it was recipe for anarchy, it seems not to see the injustice being meted out against the indigenous people of Southern Kaduna.

The Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has joined Gov. El-rufai and the Council of Imams and Ulama of Kaduna State to condemn calls for self-defense. The Council of Imams and Ulama has in fact demanded the arrest of Rev Zacahriah Gado of 19 DCC Fellowship, the CAN President, Samson Ayokunle, CAN Secretary-General Musa Asake, John Danfulani, and Solomon Musa, SOKAPU President over self-defense issues.

This therefore brings the question; who are truly the people behind the attacks in Southern Kaduna – foreign terrorists, aggrieved parties or local insurgents? When the Fulani herdsmen seem to be succeeding in their conquest, the concerned parties will either keep quiet or claim the gunmen are not Nigerians. But when the issues of arrest or self-defense come to the fore, they begin to speak out.

And we dare ask again, are they speaking out in their favour as their own brothers or as concerned humans? If it is as their own brothers, it means then that they have the solution to the problem. This is because they know them and they can either stop them or hand them over to security operatives for prosecution. This is even more crucial given that the Muslim attackers are battering the image of the religion.

If on the contrary, they are merely speaking out of human feelings, does it mean that the lives of the natives being slain on daily basis do not matter? These perhaps are the reasons the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) said, “It is obvious that these Imams are part of the evil network desperately trying to decimate the Christian population of Southern Kaduna and the taking over of their lands by Islamists herdsmen terrorists.” No wonder the recent calls for the creation of Southern Kaduna State to safeguard the interests of the local populace there.

It is heartwarming that the United Nations (UN) has promised to look into the killings in Southern Kaduna and ensure that justice prevails following a petition by the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP. However, to the political and religious leaders that have remained unconcerned on the issues, this does not mean anything. Meanwhile, Nigeria’s image is being battered before the international community.

After Ransom, what next?

Perhaps as Professor Wole Soyinka has humorously said, the reason President Muhammadu Buhari was silent on the killings may have been because he was waiting for Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, to first appease the killers with money so that they can stop the killings despite the reported death of over 800. He was however swift in condemning the death of five in the Unimaid mosque bomb blast.

On the Southern Kaduna issue, now that the insurgents have been settled however, why can’t the government go after them since they wouldn’t stop the killings? That has always been the practice after amnesty when government announces monetary rewards for repentant criminals. Those who refuse to show up during the grace period are usually and ideally clamped down upon.

Even if they cannot be tried in Nigeria because they are not Nigerians, they can either be handed over to the governments of their home countries for prosecution or even taken to the International Criminal Court (ICC) where they international laws apply. Now that this has not been done, it is likely that the claims of some individuals and groups that he may have given them funds to go and buy arms with which to keep terrorizing the people can be hardly refuted.

This therefore brings to bare the timeliness of the Senate’s resolve to investigate the killings although quelling the crisis is more important which the Army has finally after much destructions and public outcry has moved to take care of.

The senate’s move must however be done with sincerity of purpose, fast and in the interest of all. Any attempt to bring sentiments into it would only lead to another dead end which could lead to another outbreak of violence later in time.

Those reportedly identified and paid ransoms equally need to be brought before the law. Criminals cannot always be treated as brothers against the constitutional provisions which forbid taking the laws into one’s hands and taking another man’s life illegally. The constitution indeed is greater than any man or woman, group or tribe and it must therefore be applied on all, without fear or favour in line with the rule of law which forms the basis for democracy worldwide. For those “arbitrarily” arrested, particularly Southern Kaduna indigenes who are supposedly victims of the attacks, justice must be ensured for or against them depending on what the courts come up with after they must have been timely referred to them.

Rubbish Nonsense: Why Government Must Set Up Proper Project Evaluation Mechanisms

One of the greatest shortfalls of the past administration both at the federal and state levels is lack of proper monitoring and evaluation of projects especially roads.

As a result, projects that were meant to be completed within two years for example doubled their tenures in some cases. Again, quality was greatly undermined due to inconsistencies in followups and supervision.

Lalong might be doing well and probably likely to break Jang's records in infrastructural and staff welfare development.

However, his administration's quality assurance mechanisms appear too weak to give him that.
It is good that he has placed his field supervisors on good rewards for delivering on quality. But those are mere structural arrangements.

Technicalities however require technicalities. Field supervisors who do not have the requisite qualification or experience to test and ascertain the quality of a project might only deliver temporary results.

And because most times poorly constructed roads don't show signs of damage until after about 4 years, you are only likely to realize the shortfalls when you have left office. By then, your image would have already fallen as a or result.

Why not rework it then?
