We’ll never hang Buhari’s portrait in our offices –PDP

The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party has refused to recognise Muhammadu Buhari, as President by failing to hang his official portrait at the party’s national secretariat.

Buhari’s official portrait is not hung at any of the offices in the PDP’s Wadata House national secretariat, located at Zone 5, Abuja, Punch reports.
Despite the fact that the party has removed the portrait of former President, Goodluck Jonathan, it has vowed to never put Buhari’s portraits on its walls.
National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh, revealed to Punch that APC did not hang the portrait of Jonthan in its offices before his defeat in the presidential election.
“We will never hang his portrait in this office, because President Buhari is not known to our party. He is not a leader of our party and therefore we will never put his portrait here. We are a political party, very partisan and therefore, we are not going to hide that.”
 “Can you find out if the APC had the portrait of former President Jonathan in their office before he was defeated? That is just it.”

Femi Fani Kayode Says That Nigeria Is Built On A Satanic Foundation

A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, says Nigeria has refused to develop because it was built on a ‘satanic’ foundation.
The former minister said this in a Facebook post titled, ‘Lord Lugard’s Magic and Flora Shaw’s Spell.’

Fani-Kayode, who also served as the Minister of Tourism under former President Olusegun Obasanjo, said the manner with which Nigeria was created in 1914 was the reason the country was still struggling.

He said both Lord Fredrick Lugard, who was the first Governor-General of Nigeria; and his wife, Flora Shaw (later Flora Lugard), who gave Nigeria its name, were worshippers of Satan.
Fani-Kayode said, “It is generally agreed though not commonly admitted that both Lugard and Flora Shaw wereLuciferians who practised the black arts and all manner of satanic rituals.
“He (Lugard) was a ‘High Priest of the Freemasons’ whilst they were both avid followers of Aleister Crowley, the leading satanist of his day and the self-styled ‘world’s most wicked man.’”
“This explains a lot. It also explains why Shaw gave us the name Nigeria – a name which has questionable roots. Anyone that doubts this should consider the literal translation of Nigeria into Latin: it means “the area of darkness” and there is a deep spiritual and mystical reason why she gave us that name.
“It comes with a lot of baggage because not much good can come out of an area of darkness.”

Fani-Kayode, who was the spokesperson for former President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign organisation, said most of the African countries that were colonised by Britain had since changed their names.
He said only Sudan and Nigeria refused to change their names and that was why they were still struggling.

He added, “Most of the former British colonies changed their names after independence for similar reasons but because most of our leaders in Nigeria were not aware of these matters, they refused to do so.
“Lugard and Shaw were an unlikely couple who had no children. What held them together was more spiritual and mystical than anything else and Nigeria and Sudan are their joint legacy to the world.

“Sadly, both countries are having major challenges today. Sudan has broken into two after a protracted and bitter civil war while Nigeria is experiencing serious regional, ethnic and religious tensions. It is clear that our nation needs a good deal of prayers. May God deliver us from Lord Lugard’s magic and his beautiful wife’s spell.”

Fani-Kayode said Nigeria was created such that the North could rule forever while the resources of the South would continually be exploited.
The former minister said it was a miracle that Nigeria had only witnessed one civil war since it gained independence in 1960.

He argued that the only thing that had kept Nigeria united was the oil in the Niger Delta as well as the strength, patience and collective will of the people.
He said, “This was his (Lugard’s) vision: a northern Nigeria that was essentially the ‘head of the household’ and that would remain in control of all the powers and resources of the state and a southern Nigeria that would play the role of a passive and subservient wife whose destiny it was to remain in perpetual subjugation and bondage.

“The truth is that the British colonialists were masters of divide and rule. The amalgamation of the southern and northern protectorates was a Greek gift which was designed to fail and to crumble at the appropriate time. Nigerians have done well to have held it together for so long and the fact that we have only experienced one civil war is miraculous.”

“Comot joo” – Obasanjo tells journalists as he meets with Buhari behind closed doors(Photos)

President Buhari and former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, Tuesday, had a close door meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The meeting between the duo lasted for about one hour at the President’s office.
However, Obasanjo refused to speak to journalists when Buhari accompaigned him to his vehicle at 4:17pm.
In his usual hilarious manner, the Ota farmer simply told journalists that approached him: “comot joo.”

Queen Elizabeth shapes UK's history, becomes longest-reigning monarch

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, who ascended the throne aged just 25 as her exhausted country struggled to recover from the ravages of World War II, makes history as she becomes the UK’s longest-reigning monarch.
At about 5:30pm (1630 GMT) on Wednesday, Elizabeth, 89, who is also the nation’s oldest ever monarch, will surpass the 63 years, 7 months, 2 days, 16 hours and 23 minutes that her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria spent on the throne.
British Prime Minister David Cameron led the tributes to the queen.
“Over the last 63 years, Her Majesty has been a rock of stability in a world of constant change and her selfless sense of service and duty has earned admiration not only in Britain, but right across the globe,” Cameron said.
“It is only right that today we should celebrate her extraordinary record, as well as the grace and dignity with which she serves our country.”
Those close to the queen say she is fairly blase about the milestone, believing it represents little more than the fact that she has lived for a long time.
“It’s business as usual as far as she is concerned,” said one senior aide.
Initially she did not even intend to mark the event publicly, but she has bowed to public pressure and will now undertake an official engagement in Scotland, where she traditionally spends her summer holiday.
Along with her husband Prince Philip, who has been at her side throughout her reign, she will take a journey on a steam locomotive to mark the opening of the longest domestic railway to be built in Britain for more than 100 years.
As a young princess, Elizabeth had not expected to become monarch as her father George VI only took the crown when his elder brother Edward VIII abdicated the throne in 1936 to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson.

Pastor rapes 16 year old girl during 3-day deliverance prayer

A pastor, Abraham Sunday, has been arrested for allegedly raping a 16-year-old girl, in Adalemo Estate, in the Toll Gate area, on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway.

This happened last Wednesday, September 2.
Apparently the girl who was ill at the time, had been taken by the pastor to a house in Adalemo Estate on August 28 for deliverance prayer when the incident occurred.
Her mother who wasn’t aware of the session, immediately became worried when she couldn’t place her daughter’s whereabouts.
The matter was said to have been reported to the police by the landlord of the house where Sunday allegedly camped the teenager to rape her.
A police officer revealed that the girl was then taken to a hospital, where a medical test confirmed that she had been raped. The pastor was thereafter arrested.
He said, “The pastor was like a foster father to the girl. She was ill and had gone to a hospital in the area. While returning from the hospital, she boarded the same bus with the pastor, who said he would take her to a place for prayers.
“Since the suspect was a family friend, she did not doubt him. So, they went to the pastor’s apartment, where he camped and raped her for three days. The victim’s mother did not even know about the deliverance prayer.
“On Monday, the landlord and some neighbours got suspicious of the pastor’s arrangement with the teenager and they alerted a non-governmental organisation in the area, which in turn invited the police. The girl was rescued and rushed to a hospital, where a medical test confirmed rape. The suspect was arrested immediately.”
