Arewa Youths Reveals Why Osinbajo Should Fight Back Or Resign

AYCF, Arewa Youth Consultative Forum,  compels the Vice President of Nigeria Yemi Osinbajo to fight back because he has been ridiculed in the Presidency.

While reacting to the sack of some aides attached to the Vice President, FreshReporters News reports that the AYCF President General, Yerima Shettima has declared the fact that Osinbajo stands the risk of being removed if he failed to fight back or resign as Vice President.

Insisting that the current government has undermined Osinbajo, Shettima wondered why the Vice President has remained silent in the face of his travail in the Presidency.

Read Shettima's Full Statement Below:

“We have discovered that certain people at the corridors of power are manipulating the system for their selfish interest, like it or not somebody somewhere wants to ensure that the Vice President was put off the system so that he can’t find his way to the presidency in 2023.

“One thing about this government is no matter how they pretend, something is wrong. The moment they said the President and his Vice were in good terms I knew something was wrong because there can’t be smoke without a fire.

“Instead of sacking aides of the Vice President why not look at the National Assembly, if really they want to reduce the cost of governance in Nigeria why not look for a way of placing so many aides there doing nothing on allowances or reduce the number rather than look at the office of the Vice President.

“Some of us know that the battle line has been drawn. Osinbajo is serious being undermined, this is a clear indication that he is a target and they would pull him down.

“I’m surprised that he has not come out boldly to seek the sympathy of Nigerians and speak his mind. He is sitting there quietly because he wants to prove to Nigerians that he is a man of God.

“The issue of politics is not the matter of God, its about issues, professionalism must have to come to play. I know he is a Professor of law but he needs to come out and tell Nigerians what is going on, if he continues to stay quiet he will just wake up one morning and discovered that he has been removed.

“The office of the Vice President has been ridiculed so for me its either he’s out to fight or he resigns because if he doesn’t and can’t fight back then certainly they would remove him through any means.

“Nobody thought it was possible to remove the Chief Justice of the Federation but the did it easily, so how more the Vice President that is a spare tyre to the president. The head of the judiciary was removed and they frustrated him and nothing happened.”
 NYSC DG Expresses Concern Over Dress Code Controversy

 NYSC DG Expresses Concern Over Dress Code Controversy

 Shuaibu Ibrahim, the Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has expressed concern over a recent controversy on the dress code for corps members.

In a statement issued by Adenike Adeyemi, NYSC’s Director of Press and Public Relations, Mr Ibrahim urged corps members to always adhere to the dress code.

“The DG notes with great concern the negative perception of the scheme’s dress code, arising mostly from some corps members’ disobedience to the dictates of the code.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the scheme has maintained one dress code since May 22, 1973 when it was established, devoid of ethnic, religious or gender bias.

“The code remains a pair of khaki trousers and shirt; crested vest; white vest; a pair of white shorts; a pair of zebra-striped socks; a pair of jungle boots; a pair of canvas; belt and fez cap.

“This depends on camp activity at any point in any time,” she said.

Mr Ibrahim said that the national NYSC camp, predicated on discipline and decency, is a training ground for corps members.

“Any other dress code contrary to the officially-sanctioned one will not promote the course of decency,” he stated.

According to him, it will be reprehensible for a female corps member to embark on obstacle crossing and other physical training activities on camp, including parade, in skirt or gown.

“Those will expose her indecently, thus, leaving little or nothing to imagination.

“The management observed with dismay the defacing of the NYSC uniform by some corps members by reshaping their khaki trousers, making them skin-tight, which unduly expose their curvatures, particularly the female corps members.

“Some others, in the name of religion, turn the pair of trousers issued to them into skirts.

“The scheme, therefore, considers the unwholesome act as an affront to decency on one hand and constituted authority on the other.

BREAKING!!! Popular Activist Offered ₦1m Bribe To Stop Sowore Protests(VIDEO)


A political activist, Deji Adeyanju, has accused the State Security Service of offering him a bribe to shelve a protest demanding the release of Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore.

Mr Adeyanju on Tuesday in Abuja displayed ₦1 million cash he said was offered to him by agents of the SSS.

The activist led several other protesters to the headquarters of the SSS in Abuja on Tuesday morning. The demonstrators have been asking the SSS to comply with a federal court order for Mr Sowore to be released from custody.

Mr Sowore was last month granted bail by the Federal High Court in his ongoing trial for alleged treason and defamation of President Muhammadu Buhari. He met the stringent bail conditions on November 6, but the SSS has declined to release him.

Mr Sowore’s lawyer, Femi Falana, said the SSS had been plotting to file additional charges against Mr Sowore in order to continue justifying his remand in custody, which he declared as effectively illegal since Wednesday when he met all conditions.

After SSS controversially claimed on Friday that it was holding Mr Sowore because no one had come to pick him up, Mr Adeyanju held a sit-in outside its headquarters on Saturday to demand Mr Sowore’s release, but the secret police ignored the protesters.

We also confirmed Saturday that the SSS was not ready to release Mr Sowore, contrary to what it wanted the public to believe.

On Tuesday, as businesses resumed across the country following a public holiday, Mr Adeyanju returned with activists to demand SSS compliance with the court order.

Yemi Adamolekun of Enough Is Enough was also seen in pictures of the demonstration circulated on social media.

Shortly after the demonstration began, Mr Adeyanju displayed new ₦500 notes he said totalled ₦1 million before other protests and media cameras.

He said the money was offered to him to call off the protest and even promised to offer him more.

The protesters, who gathered at about 11:30 a.m., were dispersed by armed officers shortly thereafter.

Edo governor Godwin Obaseki says he has so far created 157,000 jobs out of the 200,000 he promised the state.

Obaseki made the disclosure in his speech at the 2019 Alaghodaro Youth Summit in Benin on Monday.

“I have done what many politicians will not do; during my campaign, I promised to create a minimum 200,000 jobs within my first term, through the Edo Skills Development Agency (Edojobs).

“Politicians won’t give themselves such targets in case they don’t meet it.

“If government gives the youths the needed support, you will see that 200,000 jobs will be a piece of cake.

“Today, I am glad and happy that at the last count, we have created 157,000 jobs in Edo,” he said.

The governor said that facts about the jobs were available for anyone to verify.

“It is not just me saying it; you can find this in a publication – Business Day.

“They undertook an independent evaluation and told me that the skills development agency was able to create 45, 000 through job tracking.

“From the records, 3,500 jobs were created through jobs matching and placement, 23,000 jobs through Edo Innovation Jobs, 1,300 jobs from Edo food and agricculture cluster, and 15,000 jobs from Edo Production Centre.

“We have also created 12,000 jobs from the National Social Investment Programme, 10,000 from the Ministry of Wealth Creation, and 32,000 indirect jobs. The data is all there and you can verify them,” he said.

The governor said that his administration was out to change the narrative and mindset that education was all about certificate.

“The introduction of Edojobs was to help the youth to retrace their direction in life,” he said.

Obaseki assured the people that government was keen on improving their standards of living, adding that human development had remained the focus because that was key to growth and prosperity.
