Buhari’s regime has lost ideas, best known for blame game –Gov Mohammed
The Governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, has come out hard on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration, saying it is full of blame game, nepotism and corruption.
Mohammed , who made this assertion in an interaction with journalists on Thursday at the Ramat House, Bauchi, after the Sallah parade at the palace of the Emir of Bauchi, said the deteriorating economy which has led to widespread insecurity and poverty in the country, was as a result of loss of ideas by the Federal Government.
Mohammed added that there was truth in the assertion by the Southern governors who recently said that the northern part of the country was favoured more than the south.
If you are not fair and equitable in your administration, in your management, if there is nepotism, only one section is given positions in government, then what the southern governors said is true.
“What we know in this country, as a federation, there is always a balance in terms of appointments of federal offices, in terms of appointments even at the local level because if you don’t practise fairness at the top, then you cannot get it at the lower level. And people will begin to think of self-actualisation, self-determination, and so on,” he said.
Mohammed insisted that the Buhari regime had no ideas on how to grow the economy, noting that it was best known for blame game, just as corruption was thriving in the regime more than previous administrations.
“I think the Federal Government has lost ideas on how to grow the economy. They are just involved in a blame game. What they are best known for is blame game, always saying this and that.”
Four killed in Customs, smugglers gun fight in Oyo
Four people have been reported dead after a crossfire between operatives of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) and suspected smugglers in Iseyin area of Oyo State.
The gun fight caused fear among residents celebrating the Eid-el-Fitr while fleeing for safety
Muftau Abilawon, the former Caretaker Chairman of Iseyin Local Government Council, confirmed the crossfire to Newsmen.
“I have been duly informed by a traditional chief, the Ikolaba of Iseyin, Chief Ismail Tikalosoro, who called me and narrated the incident to me on the phone.
He advised that I brief the special adviser to the governor on security about the matter, which I did immediately, and he has promised to intervene,” Mr Abilawon stated.
He added, “I understand that the four corpses were taken to the palace of the Aseyin of Iseyin, where the chiefs appealed for calm and asked the aggrieved residents to deposit the corpses at Fadoks hospital.
“The chiefs also begged them not to set the Customs base in Iseyin ablaze, which they yielded to, but it was too late for the Toyota Hilux van as it was on fire already before the appeal.”
Reason Why President Buhari Was The Only One Sitting Down During The Ramadan Prayer (Photos)
Today our Muslim brothers and sisters all over the world celebrate the Eid al Fitr after several days of fasting.
The Eid al-Fitr, also called the “Festival of Breaking the Fast” or Lesser Eid, or simply Eid, is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan.
The president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari is a Muslim, and today he celebrated the Eid al Fitr in Aso rock alongside his wife and children.
The President was the only one sitting on a chair while others knelt down to pray. A lot of people kept wondering why President Buhari didn’t join others to kneel while praying.
After some research online, I realized that kneeling may not be necessary to reverent adoration, but it does promote a proper attitude. God is holy and we are not. The Muslims recognize this fact when they prostrate themselves before Him in prayer.
According to Islamic traditions and practices, if individuals cannot stand, they are allowed to pray seated or laying. If they are able to stand, they should maintain correct postures as much as they can. “The kneeling posture (sujud) increases the elasticity of joints.
President Buhari who recently received medical treatments in United Kingdom may not seem physically fit to knee during the prayers which is why he was offered a chair to sit.
According to Al-Baqarah: 238, Allah says: “And stand before Allah with obedience”.
For obligatory prayers, if a person sits down to pray when he is able to stand, his prayer will be invalid before Allah. Truly, such prayer will not get any reward. More so, this is actually counted as a sin.
