Muhammadu Buhari's Inaugural Address

 Muhammadu Buhari's Inaugural Address

At the inauguration ceremony at Abuja's Eagle Square - Mr Jonathan handed over the constitution and national flags before Nigeria’s new President Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in on Friday, becoming the first opposition figure to win a presidential election in the country’s recent history.

In attendance were several African heads of state as well as Secretary of State John F. Kerry, who led the U.S. delegation to the ceremony.


I am immensely grateful to God Who Has preserved us to witness this day and this occasion. Today marks a triumph for Nigeria and an occasion to celebrate her freedom and cherish her democracy. Nigerians have shown their commitment to democracy and are determined to entrench its culture. Our journey has not been easy but thanks to the determination of our people and strong support from friends abroad we have today a truly democratically elected government in place.

I would like to thank President Goodluck Jonathan for his display of statesmanship in setting a precedent for us that has now made our people proud to be Nigerians wherever they are. With the support and cooperation he has given to the transition process, he has made it possible for us to show the world that despite the perceived tension in the land we can be a united people capable of doing what is right for our nation. Together we co-operated to surprise the world that had come to expect only the worst from Nigeria. I hope this act of graciously accepting defeat by the outgoing President will become the standard of political conduct in the country. I would like to thank the millions of our supporters who believed in us even when the cause seemed hopeless. I salute their resolve in waiting long hours in rain and hot sunshine to register and cast their votes and stay all night if necessary to protect and ensure their votes count and were counted. I thank those who tirelessly carried the campaign on the social media. At the same time, I thank our other countrymen and women who did not vote for us but contributed to make our democratic culture truly competitive, strong and definitive. I thank all of you.

Having just a few minutes ago sworn on the Holy Book, I intend to keep my oath and serve as President to all Nigerians. I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody. A few people have privately voiced fears that on coming back to office I shall go after them. These fears are groundless. There will be no paying off old scores. The past is prologue. Our neighbours in the Sub-region and our African brethenen should rest assured that Nigeria under our administration will be ready to play any leadership role that Africa expects of it. Here I would like to thank the governments and people of Cameroon, Chad and Niger for committing their armed forces to fight Boko Haram in Nigeria. I also wish to assure the wider international community of our readiness to cooperate and help to combat threats of cross-border terrorism, sea piracy, refugees and boat people, financial crime, cyber crime, climate change, the spread of communicable diseases and other challenges of the 21st century.

At home we face enormous challenges. Insecurity, pervasive corruption, the hitherto unending and seemingly impossible fuel and power shortages are the immediate concerns. We are going to tackle them head on. Nigerians will not regret that they ha e entrusted national responsibility to us. We must not succumb to hopelessness and defeatism. We can fix our problems. In recent times Nigerian leaders appear to have misread our mission. Our founding fathers, Mr Herbert Macauley, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Alhaji Ahmadu Bello, the Sardauna of Sokoto, Alhaji Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Malam Aminu Kano, Chief J.S. Tarka, Mr Eyo Ita, Chief Denis Osadeby, Chief Ladoke Akintola and their colleagues worked to establish certain standards of governance. They might have differed in their methods or tactics or details, but they were united in establishing a viable and progressive country. Some of their successors behaved like spoilt children breaking everything and bringing disorder to the house. Furthermore, we as Nigerians must remind ourselves that we are heirs to great civilizations: Shehu Othman Dan fodio’s caliphate, the Kanem Borno Empire, the Oyo Empire, the Benin Empire and King Jaja’s formidable domain. The blood of those great ancestors flow in our veins.

What is now required is to build on these legacies, to modernize and uplift Nigeria. Daunting as the task may be it is by no means insurmountable. There is now a national consensus that our chosen route to national development is democracy. To achieve our objectives we must consciously work the democratic system. The Federal Executive under my watch will not seek to encroach on the duties and functions of the Legislative and Judicial arms of government. The law enforcing authorities will be charged to operate within the Constitution. We shall rebuild and the public service to become more effective and moreserviceable. We shall charge them to apply themselves with integrity to stabilize the system. For their part the legislative arm must keep to their brief of making laws, carrying out over-sight functions and doing so expeditiously.

The judicial system needs reform to cleanse itself from its immediate past. The country now expects the judiciary to act with dispatch on all cases especially on corruption, serious financial crimes or abuse of office. It is only when the three arms act constitutionally that government will be enabled to serve the country optimally and avoid the confusion all too often bedeviling governance today. Elsewhere relations between Abuja and the States have to be clarified if we are to serve the country better. Constitutionally there are limits to powers of each of the three tiers of government but that should not mean the Federal Government should fold its arms and close its eyes to what is going on in the states and local governments.

Not least the operations of the Local Government Joint Account. While the Federal Government can not interfere in the details of its operations it will ensure that the gross corruption at the local level is checked. As far as the constitution allows me I will try to ensure that there is responsible and accountable governance at all levels of government in the country. For I will not have kept my own trust with the Nigerian people if I allow others abuse theirs under my watch.

However, no matter how well organized the governments of the federation are they can not succeed without the support, understanding and cooperation of labour unions, organized private sector, the press and civil society organizations. I appeal to employers and workers alike to unite in raising productivity so that everybody will have the opportunity to share in increased prosperity. The Nigerian press is the most vibrant in Africa. My appeal to the media today – and this includes the social media – is to exercise its considerable powers with responsibility and patriotism.

My appeal for unity is predicated on the seriousness of the legacy we are getting into. With depleted foreign reserves, falling oil prices, leakages and debts the Nigerian economy is in deep trouble and will require careful management to bring it round and to tackle the immediate challenges confronting us, namely; Boko Haram, the Niger Delta situation, the power shortages and unemployment especially among young people. For the longer term we have to improve the standards of our education. We have to look at the whole field of medicare. We have to upgrade our dilapidated physical infrastructure. The most immediate is Boko Haram’s insurgency. Progress has been made in recent weeks by our security forces but victory can not be achieved by basing the Command and Control Centre in Abuja. The command centre will be relocated to Maiduguri and remain until Boko Haram is completely subdued. But we can not claim to have defeated Boko Haram without rescuing the Chibok girls and all other innocent persons held hostage by insurgents.

This government will do all it can to rescue them alive. Boko Haram is a typical example of small fires causing large fires. An eccentric and unorthodox preacher with a tiny following was given posthumous fame and following by his extra judicial murder at the hands of the police. Since then through official bungling, negligence, complacency or collusion Boko Haram became a terrifying force taking tens of thousands of lives and capturing several towns and villages covering swathes of Nigerian sovereign territory. Boko Haram is a mindless, godless group who are as far away from Islam as one can think of. At the end of the hostilities when the group is subdued the Government intends to commission a sociological study to determine its origins, remote and immediate causes of the movement, its sponsors, the international connexions to ensure that measures are taken to prevent a reccurrence of this evil. For now the Armed Forces will be fully charged with prosecuting the fight against Boko haram.

We shall overhaul the rules of engagement to avoid human rights violations in operations. We shall improve operational and legal mechanisms so that disciplinary steps are taken against proven human right violations by the Armed Forces. Boko Haram is not only the security issue bedeviling our country. The spate of kidnappings, armed robberies, herdsmen/farmers clashes, cattle rustlings all help to add to the general air of insecurity inour land. We are going to erect and maintain an efficient, disciplined people – friendly and well – compensated security forces within an over – all security architecture.

The amnesty programme in the Niger Delta is due to end in December, but the Government intends to invest heavily in the projects, and programmes currently in place. I call on the leadership and people in these areas to cooperate with the State and Federal Government in the rehabilitation programmes which will be streamlined and made more effective. As ever, I am ready to listen to grievances of my fellow Nigerians. I extend my hand of fellowship to them so that we can bring peace and build prosperity for our people. No single cause can be identified to explain Nigerian’s poor economic performance over the years than the power situation. It is a national shame that an economy of 180 million generates only 4,000MW, and distributes even less. Continuous tinkering with the structures of power supply and distribution and close on $20b expanded since 1999 have only brought darkness, frustration, misery, and resignation among Nigerians. We will not allow this to go on. Careful studies are under way during this transition to identify the quickest, safest and most cost-effective way to bring light and relief to Nigerians.

Unemployment, notably youth un-employment features strongly in our Party’s Manifesto. We intend to attack the problem frontally through revival of agriculture, solid minerals mining as well as credits to small and medium size businesses to kick – start these enterprises. We shall quickly examine the best way to revive major industries and accelerate the revival and development of our railways, roads and general infrastructure. Your Excellencies, My fellow Nigerians I can not recall when Nigeria enjoyed so much goodwill abroad as now.

The messages I received from East and West, from powerful and small countries are indicative of international expectations on us. At home the newly elected government is basking in a reservoir of goodwill and high expectations. Nigeria therefore has a window of opportunity to fulfill our long – standing potential of pulling ourselves together and realizing our mission as a great nation.

Our situation somehow reminds one of a passage in Shakespeare’s Julius Ceasar There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life, Is bound in shallows and miseries.

We have an opportunity. Let us take it.

Thank you

Muhammadu Buhari

Is Nigerian Prince Buruji Kashamu arrest a Conspiracy?

Nigerian Prince Buruji Kashamu arrest a Conspiracy

Nigeria's National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has placed a senator-elect Prince Buruji Kashamu under house arrest who is wanted by the United States in a heroin drug deal, an official said on Saturday.

Nigeria's Senator-elect and chairman of Organization and Mobilization Committee of the PDP in the South West Prince Buruji Kashamu had blamed some members of his political party, including former deputy national chairman of the ruling party, Olabode George whose wife is the director general of the NDLEA for his planned arrest by NDLEA.

The agency spokesperson said the operation is in line with the legal process of extradition.

"The Agency has commenced extradition procedures against Senator-elect, Buruji Kashamu in line with the laws of country. He has been in contact with his attorneys and will appear in court on Monday"

Kashamu alleged that the storming of his private home by the NDLEA operatives confirmed the alleged plot to illegally abduct and extradite him to the USA, despite his pending suit against such an action.

Don't Be Fooled: Nigeria's Fuel Crisis Is Just Beginning

Don't Be Fooled: Nigeria's Fuel Crisis Is Just Beginning

Many petrol stations in Nigeria have now run out of fuel both for vehicles and generators.

Nigeria’s biggest mobile phone operator MTN has warned that its network faces shutdown due to fuel shortages that have crippled the nation."If diesel supplies are not received within the next 24 hours the network will be seriously degraded and customers will feel the impact," it added on its Twitter account @MTNNG on Saturday evening.

The warning from MTN, which has more than 55-million subscribers, is a sign that businesses were now being hit.

At least three Nigerian radio stations announced on Twitter they would be going off the air to ration fuel that powers its generators.

Domestic and International flights have been cancelled while few international airlines have re-routed services into and out of Nigeria to pick up aviation fuel.

In five days (Friday May 29 to be precise) President Jonathan will hand over national power to President-elect Muhammadu Buhari,. Never in the history of our country has any government handed over to another a more distressed country: No electricity, no fuel, workers are on strike, billions are owed to state and federal workers, 60 billion dollars are owed in national debt and the economy is virtually grounded.

''Today, Nigerians are roaming the streets, jerry cans in hand, searching for everything from kerosene to fuel to diesel to power their homes, keep their vehicles on the road and keep their businesses going. They are paying as much as 300 Naira per litre for fuel, if at all they can get it. Yet their government is not saying a word about the situation.”

Epic Picture of Nigeria Presidents Past, Present and Future

President Goodluck Jonathan met in the Presidential Villa on Tuesday with president elect Gen Muhammadu Buhari, former presidents Gen. Yakubu Gowon, Alhaji Shehu Shagari, Gen Ibrahim Babangida, Gen Abdulsalami Abubakar and Chief Ernest Shonekan.

“All the presidents here understand both the pressures and possibilities of this office, to have the opportunity to get advice, good counsel and fellowship with these individuals is extraordinary and I’m very grateful to all of them.

Emir Sanusi ll  is new Chancellor of UNIBEN

Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi ll has been appointed as the new Chancellor of the University of Benin(UNIBEN) by President Goodluck Jonathan. 

 Minister of Education said the appointment of Emir Sanusi followed the recent directive by President Goodluck to the ministry to review the appointment of chancellors of universities. "On the recommendation of my humble self, President Goodluck Jonathan approved your appointment as the new Chancellor of the University of Benin. "This appointment is an honour done to Kano, myself and the Emir who is the father of all of us."

Sanusi stressed the need for the government to ensure that quality education is given to the youth to enable them to contribute their quota towards the development of the country. "Education should be given the priority attention, it deserves to empower the youth to enable them to be self-reliant and contribute towards the development of the country.

"We should not mind the number of universities but the quality of education the universities give to our youth to make them self reliant." Sanusi, who commended the Federal Government for finding him worthy of the appointment, promised to contribute his quota towards the development of the university.

The newly appointed Chancellor of the University of Benin said the University of Benin had received his good attention when he was the governor of the Central Bank saying he was behind the construction of the bridge that linked the two campuses of the University.

He however stated that the agitation for the construction of the bridge was mounted dating back to the days when the late Lamido of Adamawa was the Chancellor saying it was a struggle that had taken the authorities of the University four decades to actualize.

100 Best Places To Be A Mother

100 Best Places To Be A Mother

Whether you are newlywed or just looking to become a mother, the 25 best places and countries to be a mother will shock you. The United States is not in the top 30 countries, Nigeria is ranked 166th below Libya, South Africa and other African countries.

The world's best place to be a mother is Norway as the United States drops to 33rd place in an annual survey.'An American woman is more than ten times as likely to die in pregnancy or childbirth as a Polish woman,' Save the Children said in a statement.

The ten worst places to be a mother were sub-Saharan countries including Sierra Leone and Gambia, according to Yahoo News, with nine of them being wracked by conflict.

For mothers in the bottom countries, conditions for them and their children are grim as on average, one woman in 30 dies from pregnancy-related causes, according to the report.

The contrast between Norway and Somalia is striking considering for instance that one Somali woman in 18 is at a higher risk of eventually dying of a maternal cause where in Norway it is a rare event with a one in 15,000 chance.

In Norway, children have access to good health and education but in Somalia almost 15 per cent of children do not live to see their fifth birthday, according to the report.

Nigerian billionaire wants Arsenal stake

Nigerian billionaire wants Arsenal stake
Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote, plans to buy FA cup champions Arsenal football club in the English premier league, media reported on Tuesday.

The Nigerian has been keen to take control of the Gunners for a number of years and was linked with a stake in the club when former director Lady Nina Bracewell-Smith was selling her shares in 2010.

Speaking to Bloomberg, Dangote said: "I still hope, one day at the right price, that I will buy the team. I might buy it, not at a ridiculous price but a price that the owners won't want to resist. I know my strategy."

However, the 58-year-old was quick to point out that, despite the interest, no bid for the Premier League side 'is in the pipeline'.

"We have 16 billion dollars-worth of investments in the next few years," he added. "Right now I want to take my own business to a certain level. Once I finish on that trajectory, then maybe."

Mayweather vs Pacquiao win predictions

Mayweather vs Pacquiao win predictions

After months and years of hype, Floyd Mayweatherand vs. Manny Pacquiao will step into the ring on Saturday in Las Vegas and fight for who’s the best in the world. Mayweather boxing record is clean and he will try to keep his 47-0 record (with 26 knockouts) pristine, and Pacquiao boxing record of (57-5-2, 38 KOs) will do his best to show that he, along with Mayweather, is one of the best fighters in history.

Who will win the bet between Mayweather and Pacquiao-that is the the big question. Will Mayweather’s desire to badly win this fight and preserve his legacy be enough to overtake the dangerous-punching Pacquiao? Or will Pacquiao take advantage of the theory that Mayweather, at the age of 38, has slowed down enough to allow Pacquiao — who also will have to overcome Mayweather’s mind games to succeed — to catch him with a potential knockout shot?

Osaseye bring some of the major predictions for the Saturday night live fight.

Oscar De La Hoya : The man who lost a split decision to Mayweather in 2007 and then was stopped by Pacquiao in De La Hoya’s final fight in 2008 leans toward Mayweather. Said De La Hoya, via ESPN: “I believe this fight is going to be more exciting today than five years ago because both guys are not as agile on their feet. Mayweather has lost a step or two with his legs and so has Pacquiao. Pacquiao will have a chance to connect a few punches on Mayweather and vice versa.”

Miguel Cotto: Like De La Hoya, Cotto — a world titlist in four weight classes — has faced and lost to both men. While Mayweather beat him via unanimous decision in 2012, Pacquiao totally destroyed Cotto during a 12th-round TKO in 2009. Cotto thinks Pacquiao and his trainer Freddie Roach will combine to beat Mayweather. “After working with Freddie, I think Freddie is going to be huge in the fight,” Cotto told the New York Post. “I’m going for Manny.” It should be noted that Roach also worked De La Hoya’s corner in his loss to Mayweather.

Keith Thurman: One of the most-exciting younger fighters today, the current welterweight belt-holder likes Mayweather. “[Manny is] going to be open for the counters, but I think he can make them up with some of the flurries,” Thurman told “I favor Mayweather in the fight. But it’s a great fight and I expect it to be one of the toughest Mayweather has had in the last several years.”

Paulie Malignaggi: The current Showtime boxing analyst and two-time world titlist who has a 33-6 record has a detailed explanation for why he favors Mayweather. This is what he told Grantland’s “The Ropes” podcast, viaBusiness Insider: “If Manny’s going to have a shot at winning this, he’s better off starting fast. I think it’s to his own detriment if he doesn’t start fast. … I see Floyd just taking his time and just trying to get Pacquiao missing and take away the confidence of Pacquiao in his own offense. … I think you’ll see Floyd stepping in with pot-shot counters or not stepping in at all with counters and at times having Pacquiao miss altogether.

Wladimir Klitschko: The current dominant heavyweight champion who will be remembered as one of the best ever is precise with his prediction. He toldESPN: “From a boxing standpoint, I give Floyd a 51 percent advantage, Manny 49 percent. Watching their two styles, I think Floyd has a slight advantage and will win on points.”

Mike Tyson: One of the most-feared heavyweight champions of the past 30 years thinks Pacquiao will score the knockout. Watch him here interviewed by the Undisputed Champion Network (and watch toward the end of the interview when he rips Mayweather for believing that Mayweather is the greatest of all time).
