buhari administration at 7: services to the people nothing else
BUHARI ADMINISTRATION AT 7: SERVICE TO THE PEOPLE, NOTHING ELSE Exactly seven years ago, Muhammadu Buhari took the oath of office as President, promising to serve Nigeria faithfully in all spheres of national life. He concluded the first four years, and Nigerians in a show of confidence massively renewed his term for another four years, which lapses this time next year. The seven years milestone presents a major landmark and opportunity to review the service of President Buhari to the country, and its people. What are the highpoints in terms of legislation; what Bills have been signed into law, and what salutary impact have they made on the nation? What are the strides in infrastructural development; roads, bridges, rail, air and sea ports, housing, and many others? Oil and gas reforms? Digital economy? Mines and steel development? Agriculture? Education, Health, Creative Industry, Sports, and many others? And security, yes, security, despite the current challenges. Here’s a one-stop shop of the achievements of the Muhammadu Buhari administration at 7. Revisionists would want to look at security challenges, which are being robustly tackled, alone. But we look at the entire gamut, and honest and fair Nigerians will admit that a lot has been done, and a lot more will still be done in the 12 months ahead. Come along, and let’s together plumb the depths of the strides of the Buhari administration at 7. It’s service to the people, and nothing else.

Napoleon Bonaparte who is born on August 15, 1769 is one of the most divisive emperors in history a man who was recently called an icon of white supremacy. On October 28, 1785, Napoleon Bonaparte graduated from a military academy in Paris with a fairly low rank he became a second lieutenant in the French army by then his father had died of stomach cancer Napoleon then took charge of his family even though he was not the oldest son, he was only 16. At 23 Napoleon fought for Pascal Pauli a leader supporting Corsica’s independence from France when Paulie won he turned against Napoleon, his family had to flee France. In the following year, 1793, after the French King, Louis XVI, who convicted for high treason in a near-unanimous vote had been beheaded, France became a republic, this saw to the return of Napoleon Bonaparte, and his rise began with the French revolution he led a military expedition to recapture the city of Toulon he quashed a rebellion in Paris. At the age of 27 he was appointed the commander of the French forces in Italy his troops conquered much of Italy and parts of Austria he became a hero. Napoleon's military planning and his war strategy boosted his position in France he defeated the Egyptian forces even tried invading modern-day Syria and he failed he deserted his army and returned to France then he staged a coup overthrew the five-man executive body of France and became the first council of the country in the year 1799. Napoleon who was just 30 years old got married and this was just the beginning of his climb, he led France, he reformed the education System, the banking system, instituted a Napoleonic code much like the modern day penal code, at 33 he became the first council for life then he crowned himself the Emperor of France, he censored oppositions, exiled his critics installed several paintings of himself in prominent, Napoleon also restored slavery, but with all these, Napoleon close to 15-year rule of France will be mostly remembered for his wars, the country was almost always at war. In the year 1803 Napoleon sold modern day Louisiana to United State under President Thomas Jefferson for 15 million dollars and he used this money to fund wars he tried fighting the British Royal Navy and he failed, he fought the Russians, he defeated the Austrians twice, he defeated the Prussian army, by 1807 napoleon had control of most of Western and Central Europe and his law was applicable in all of these lands but he knew that his forces would never be able to take on the British Royal Navy so he introduced a blockade a blockade on British trade he forbade European countries from trading with Britain this system failed because European countries including Russia pulled out of the trade blockade and to punish Russia Napoleon decided to invade it he failed miserably he lost 5000 soldiers to cold weather and disease the year was 1813. Napoleon was 44 years old it was his worst defeat ever within a year forces from Britain, Russia, Spain, Austria invaded France Napoleon was forced to surrender he was exiled to the Island of Elba in the Mediterranean he came to France one year later he regained power but this time his rule lasted for only 100 days Napoleon Bonaparte was defeated in the battle of waterloo, he was then exiled to the island of saint Elena far from France where he was monitored by British guards. On May 5, 1821, Napoleon's life ended like a Shakespearean tragedy, he died within six years in exile he was just 52 years old, the year was to some he remains a military genius to some he is an emblem of friend supremacy but for much of Europe he is one of the continent's most divisive leaders a blot to Europe in history from a minor noble family napoleon went on to become the ruler of much of continental Europe his story was a message for all of us each one of us has the ability to change the course of history but it's up to us to decide which way we want to steer it.

why we are at okorocha's home - efcc
Why We Are At Okorocha's Home - EFCC Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on May 24, 2022, arrived at the Maitama, Abuja home of a former governor of Imo state, Senator Rochas Okorocha, to effect his arrest. https://t.co/G09HhjSOEU The move followed the refusal of the former governor to honour invitations after jumping the administrative bail earlier granted him by the Commission. EFCC had on January 24, 2022 filed a 17-count criminal charge bordering on diversion of public funds and properties to the tune of N2.9billion against Okorocha. The case was assigned to Honourable Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja but attempts to arraign Senator Okorocha were twice stalled owing to the absence of the ex-governor who evaded service of processes. At the last adjourned date, March 28th, 2022, Justice Ekwo before adjourning until May 30th, 2022, had warned that it was “the last adjournment I shall grant in this matter”. In the circumstances, the Commission is left with no option than to effect the arrest of Senator Okorocha and bring him to trial. Wilson Uwujaren Head, Media & Publicity 24 May, 2022

photo speaks: president buhari honoured with global integrity and anti-corruption award of excellency
PRESIDENT BUHARI HONOURED WITH GLOBAL INTEGRITY AND ANTI-CORRUPTION AWARD OF EXCELLENCE In recognition of his lifetime outstanding commitment to the fight against corruption and selfless service with exceptional integrity, President Muhammadu Buhari has been honoured with the Chartered Institute of Forensics and Certified Fraud Examiners of Nigeria (CIFCFEN) GLOBAL INTEGRITY AND ANTI CORRUPTION AWARD OF EXCELLENCE. The President was presented with the Award on Tuesday in Abuja by the Chairman Governing Council CIFCFEN Board of Trustees, Dr Iliyasu Gashinbaki. The award is the highest honour of the Institute reserved for only African Heads of States with impeccable character and unimpeachable ideals. The Nigerian leader is the first African leader to be bestowed with the award. Receiving the award, President Buhari thanked the Institute for the honour, saying: ''This recognition further imbues in me hope that we will as individuals and citizens of this country begin to live right and imbibe the ideals and ethos of the founding fathers of this great nation.'' The President pledged ''to look into and assent accordingly'' a bill seeking the formal establishment of CIFCFEN, acknowledging that the Bill is presently before him. He commended the Institute for working and effectively complementing the efforts of law enforcement agencies, including the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) and the Police. He directed the anti-corruption agencies to continue partnering with the Institute for the benefit of the country. Furthermore, the President directed the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning to work with the Institute in areas of providing technical assistance and capacity building to all revenue generating agencies and regulators in the public sector. The President lauded the Board of Trustees for issuing the first independent review of graft fighting strategy of the country, adding that he is pleased to receive copies of the latest flagship publication, the Annual (2021) CIFCFEN Country Report, themed around the review of the Country’s National Anti-Corruption Strategy 2017-2021. ''This is the first independent review of graft fighting strategy and I commend the Institute for this initiative.'' Justifying the importance of forensics and fraud examination in the fight against corruption, President Buhari said: ''The need for forensic experts arises in educating, preventing, detecting and prosecuting fraudsters, while fraud examination helps mitigate vices like embezzlement, money laundering, misuse and mismanagement of public resources. ''Many Nigerians, who are serious about eliminating corruption in our country, will welcome this review of the National Anti-Corruption Strategy midwifed by the Federal Ministry of Justice and the Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption in 2017 and supported by our International friends. ''This has been our flagship effort in fighting corruption and we did this by distilling all previous strategies geared towards fighting corruption into a single strategy, while this review comes with recommendations that will be carefully reviewed by the Office of the Attorney General and adopted in our 2nd National Anti-Corruption Strategy that will be unveiled shortly. ''This effort by the Institute to undertake the review of the national anti-corruption strategy is highly commendable and it has shown the usefulness of partnerships with professional bodies and my administration will continue to partner with the Institute and as well as other private institutions, the academia and other stakeholders in the fight to stop sleaze and mitigate corruption.'' In his remarks, Dr Gashinbaki noted that the Institute was established in 2011 by the Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN) as the Society of Forensic Accounting and Fraud Prevention (SFAFP), but was later changed to CIFCFEN. He said as a partner to the government, the Institute has noted certain commendable international best practices by this administration, which should be sustained by even successive administrations. He listed the following: ''Principle of complete non-interference with investigation activities; elimination of the culture of political investigations and prosecutions; strong will in reforming the oil and gas sector; sustainable reforms in the maritime sector; treasury single account; recoveries of the proceeds of crime and forensic audit of revenue generating and big spending agencies.'' The Chairman Governing Council CIFCFEN Board of Trustees added that sustenance of best practices such as open government partnership, as well as the open contracting regime and beneficial ownership disclosure would have the significant potential of increasing the nation’s revenue by N10 trillion in the short term.
