GEJ’s Ex-Aide Discharged And Acquainted Of Alleged N1. 6bn Fraud

The Federal High Court in Lagos has discharged and acquitted former President Goodluck Jonathan’s aide, Dr Waripamo Owei-Dudafa of an alleged N1.6billion fraud charge.

Justice Mohammed Idris held that EFCC failed to prove any of the 22-count charge beyond reasonable doubt against Owei-Dudafa and a Heritage Bank worker Joseph Iwejuo.

He said the anti-graft agency’s case was “based on suspicions” but that suspicions “cannot take the place of legal evidence”.

Justice Idris also observed that the EFCC failed to call vital witnesses, including Jonathan and former NSA Sambo Dasuki, who could have helped its case.

The judge noted that a particular vital witness, Sompre Omeibi, who could have linked the defendants to the offences, was not summoned to testify. “Why did the prosecution fail to call Sompre Omiebi to testify?” the judge wondered.

The court also dismissed the EFCC’s claim that the bags delivered by Dudafa to Jonathan contained dollars. Justice Idris held that there was no proof for that.

“How did the prosecution know that the bags contained dollars?” the judge wondered again. He said the Prosecution failed to carry out proper investigation.

The President Has Canceled The Printing Of E-passport Contracts Abroad

President Buhari made this known on the evening of Thursday, July 11

The president, however, ordered that all Nigerian e-passport must be produced locally

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered that the production and personalisation of all e-passports and related documentation to be the sole responsibility of the Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Company (NSPMC).

It was reported that The Mint company was established in 1963 with the objective of producing the nation’s currency notes and coins for the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) as well as security documents for Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of government, banks and other blue chip companies.

Femi Adesina, the special adviser on media and publicity to the president, in a statement isued on Thursday, July 11, said that with the new directive from the president, all existing memoranda of understanding and contracts on printing by other institutions/ companies would not be renewed.

The statement read: “The Mint is the largest banknote and security documents specialist printing company in West Africa. However, its performance was rapidly dwindling in terms of both currency production and security documents prior to 2014.”

He said under the chairmanship of the CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele, the new targets were set and managing director/chief executive officer of The Mint, Abbas Umar Masanawa, recounted some of the achievements to include: zero importation of currency from 2014 to date, with attendant benefits of conservation of foreign reserve, revenue and employment generation, as well as safeguarding the nation’s sovereignty.

According to the statement, Masanawa said: “The Mint has returned to profitability. From a moribund organisation with heavy losses, the company grew from a loss position of N14. 6 million in 2014 to a profit of N14. 3 billion in 2018. Turnover also grew from N17.8 billion in 2014 to N61. 4 billion in 2018.

Other achievements include enhanced production capacity, revenue diversification, reduced cost of production, institutionalization of corporate governance, improved staff welfare and industrial harmony, among others.

The managing director pledged that The Mint would justify the renewed confidence reposed in it by the president, adding that, “as we are moving to the Next Level, and poised to boost national security and integrity, we will conserve scarce foreign exchange, improve revenue generation, create job opportunities, and boost acquisition/transfer of technology

Buba Galadima Denies Fall Out With President In 2015

Buba Galadima, who is a former ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, told the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, on Monday, denied the claim that he fell out with the President in 2015 because he was not appointed a minister.

Galadima, who is the first witness for the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, said he fell out with Buhari because of alleged injustice in his administration, lack of inclusiveness and failure of the administration to secure Nigeria.

“You fell out with the 2nd respondent (Buhari) because he did not make you a minister in 2015,” Olanipekun asked.

Responding, Galadima said, “No. You should know that I fought all the previous governments since 1999 because of injustice.

“We made good promises to Nigerians, including justice, inclusiveness, and to secure the country, which he has failed to do.

“It has always being part of my characteristics to fight injustice.”
He confirmed that he had supported Buhari in the 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015 election cycles until the 2019 election.

While being cross-examined by the All Progressives Congress’ lawyer, Lateef Fagbemi (SAN), the witness said he was aware that there no registered party called the Reformed APC, but maintained that he was still the chairman of the group.

He, however, said he remained a member of the APC since had “not been sacked”

Galadima, a spokesperson for the Atiku Campaign Organisation, “I’m still a member of APC. I have not been sacked. We are in court. I don’t want to be subjudice.

“I’m not a member of PDP, but we have a memorandum of understanding with the PDP to produce God-fearing, good and educated leader.”

President Buhari Ready To End The Mance Of Terrorism Afflicting The Country

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday reiterated his readiness to end the menace of terrorist, and herdsmen afflicting the country.
He said the government will punish murderous herdsmen, terrorists and all other criminal elements in the country.

Buhari, who was represented by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, made the promise at the grand finale of the 2019 Nigerian Army Day Celebration and Combat Support Arms Training Week at Ikeja Cantonment Parade Ground, Lagos.

The Nigerian Army Day is an annual event held every July 6, since 1976, in honour of the Nigerian Army with the theme; ‘Professionally Responsive Soldering: A Panacea for Successful Military Operations’.
The President said the security challenges in the country were being tackled in collaboration with the Nigerian Armed Forces.
“The challenge for us is to recognise this sick extremism of Boko Haram for what it is and form alliances across faith, ethnicities, to destroy an evil that confronts us all.

“We will continue to demonstrate the political will and determination towards ensuring that our land is rid of insurgency and that criminality is kept at the barest minimum.
“There are also other situations of insecurity in our midst, the Fulani Herder and farmer conflicts, random killings, banditry and kidnapping.
“In different parts of the country, there are challenges that the army has had to intervene in, in many occasions.

“We assure all Nigerians that these challenges are being seriously tackled by the federal government working with the states through a multi-pronged approach, working with the Nigerian Army and all our security forces and law enforcement agencies.

“Nobody will be allowed to maim, kill or commit other crimes and escape. It is our duty to apprehend and punish these criminals and we are doing that and we will continue to do so,” he said.

The president also implored the judiciary to ensure timely dispensation of justice in the cases of arrested bandits.
“Several bandits’ hideouts and camps have been destroyed and hundreds of arrests have been made.

“It is now up to our Judiciary to ensure that justice is meted out, not just comprehensively, but in a timely manner,” he said.
On chibok girls, he siaid his administration would intensify efforts to bring back the remaining Chiboks girls, Leah Shuaribu and others who were still in captivity.

“We want to reassure the affected families and friends that this administration will not relent in its efforts to bring back all the remaining girls, including Leah Shuaribu, who has become a postal child for the heinous activities of Boko Haram insurgency.
“We will reunite them with their families and friends by the Grace of God,” he said.

Some dignitaries present at the event were the former Military Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon (Retd), Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, who was represented by his deputy, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat, the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ibas and Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Abayomi Olonisakin.
Also present were Gov. AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara, the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, represented by Sen. Solomon Adeola, Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu.

In Spite Of Sacking The President Chief Of Staff, Buhari Has Stuck With Abba Kyari

President Muhammadu Buhari has stuck with Abba Kyari in spite of a recent protest by the All Progressives Congress’ stakeholders calling for the sack of the president’s chief of staff.

Kyari is widely considered as the master puppeteer in Aso Rock while President Buhari is seen as the puppet. But both Buhari and the APC have repeatedly denied the allegation even though the First Lady, Aisha Buhari felt otherwise.

There was a protest in Abuja on June 24 in which the former military dictator was asked to give Kyari the boot.

However, the Presidency said the protest was sponsored.

While on the next day, another group of protesters marched to the Presidential Villa supporting Kyari. The Presidency did not condemn the group as being sponsored.

Yesterday Buhari approved the reappointment of Boss Mustapha as Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and Kyari as CoS to the President.

The reappointment came 38 days after the president was sworn in for a second term.
President Buhari has yet to appoint his ministers.

He has also not announced the reappointment of the two presidential spokesmen, Femi Adesina and Garba Shehu.

Kyari’ s first coming was on August 27, 2015 while Mustapha became the SGF on October 30, 2017 when his predecessor, Babachir David Lawal, was shamefully eased out of office following his alleged grass-cutting scandal.
