â€˜BuhariMustGoâ€™ circulated across many social medias for mobilization
The architects perceptively realized, along the line that removal of an elected president is exclusively a legislative affair, and not a street affair by masses, thus, not feasible by civil disorders or protests. In fact, it doesnâ€™t end with the Legislature; National Assembly as any impeachment proceedings must be endorsed by a Panel to be set up by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, to proceed as provided in Section 143(5). And Subsection 6 (Sec 143) gives the accused president a right to defend himself of the allegations. In all these, the powers of the masses are only wrapped inside their elected NASS representatives. The Parliamentarians are therefore peoplesâ€™ mouths except for peaceful protest merely to draw attention of authorities on pressing issues for urgent intervention.
Applicants in the category of â€˜Households loansâ€™ have a maximum of N3,000,000 (Three million Naira) obtainable without collateral as done in advanced countries. The basic requirement is to have a bank account with BVN (Bank Verification Number). For large-scale businesses, the maximum grant is N25, 000,000 (Twenty-five million naira). There are other schemes designed to support citizensâ€™ businesses particularly helpless masses that lack requisite facilities to meet up for loans from commercial banks. They include a grant of N30,000 as Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Survival Fund to 9,000 artisans in each of the 36 states of the federation and FCT. Those that applied were mobilized accordingly.
bitterly disagreed with Buhariâ€™s claims. The blames should go to the
elected representatives for not acquainting members of their
constituencies of federal governmentâ€™s programmes meant to empower the
masses. This is the primary reason federalism is patterned to have
representatives from all constituencies. From records, Buhariâ€™s claim to
have empowered 10.5million people stemmed from verifiable records of
total number that have so far benefitted from his administrationâ€™s
various financial empowerment schemes. It is therefore imperative that
elected peoplesâ€™ representatives should carry the people in their
constituencies along to benefit from the Executiveâ€™s initiatives as a
responsibility irrespective of the political party in power.
Governmentâ€™s target is 100 million beneficiaries, thus, the schemes are
not over though in phases.
which is going to the extreme, it must be noted that the phrase is a
figure-of-speech, and used to describe the few, violently agitating for
secession. Itâ€™s metaphorical, and not addressed to Igbo ethnic group but
the small fraction aggressively taking laws into their hands. So far,
leaders-of-thoughts and political leaders of Southeast geopolitical zone
have not endorsed secession but restructuring for equitable
distribution of national resources. The same goes to Southwest and
Southsouth regions. The people of the zones are represented in the
Parliament of the Federal Republic of Nigeria accordingly. The
governments of the various States are all part of the Nigeria nation
alongside their respective governors as members of Federal Executive
Council. These are the voices of the people in the states.
is therefore a height of absurdity for a â€œDistinguished Senator of the
Federal Republic of Nigeriaâ€ to join the gullible masses to misconstrue
the figure-of-speech and sarcastically, publicly wearing a branded
t-shirt inscribed â€œThe DOT-Nationâ€. This is absurd and unacceptable.
Senator Enyinaya Abaribe goofed. Instructively, a dot in a circle is a
metaphor, and literally means a paltry portion in a large space. It is
self-explanatory. Sensibly, the president wouldnâ€™t have tagged one of
three major ethnic groups her people spread globally as a dot in a
circle. The great Igbo nation is clearly not IPOB that Buhari was
answering questions about its activities. And Igbo leaders have never
supported arsons and violent civil disorders, but few misled youths in
the region. Public officeholders must always display maturity.
