Be Courageous, To Go To Court If …….. Journalist Tells Sports Minister



A Journalist known as Sylvanus Ofekun a.k.a Sly have called on the Minister of youth and Sports, Mr. Sunday Dare to toll the part of justice and approach court if he has case against him

In a statement signed on Monday in Abuja said: “ I have within the past week read several online news blog sites of a petition written against me to the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu by Nigeria’s Minister of Sports,Mr.

Sunday Dare.

I had taken it to be one of those fake news but with a confirmation from a post by an aide of the minister,John Joshua over the weekend on Facebook, it has become necessary to advise the minister to respect his office as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.Inasmuch as I love his first approach to investigate the source of the news linking him to have benefited from the Lekki Tollgate, I would advise to allow the police do their job.

From his statement yesterday, am concerned that Mr.Dare has become the accuser, the judge and the executor of the petition he brought before the number one police officer.

The office of a minister is honorable and it is expected to be treated as such; If Mr.Dare is convinced about his allegations, he ought to have approached a court of competent jurisdiction for justices rather than playing to gallery by intimidating a soft target.

While I wait for the police under the able leadership of IGP M.A Adamu to carry out a detailed investigation about the allegations of Mr.Dare,I employ him to always show respect toward his office as a honorable minister of the federal republic of Nigeria.

Eid-el-Fitr: Buhari Asks Christians, Muslims To Jointly Pray Against Kidnapping, Banditry



President Muhammadu Buhari in his Eid-el-Fitr message to Nigerians asked both Christians and Muslims to unite and jointly pray against tragic incidents of kidnapping and banditry.

He also called for practices that promote brotherhood and forgiveness noting that unity and solidarity among all citizens is imperative especially at this time when Nigeria is faced with multiple challenges.

This was disclosed in a statement signed on Wednesday by the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.

“On this blessed occasion, I wish that the Eid festival brings with it peace, safety, security, brotherhood, and love amongst all.

 “Unity and solidarity among all citizens, Muslims, and Christians are imperative especially at a time when our country is faced with multiple challenges which are surmountable only when we come together as one.

“It is important that we remember how we share, through our faiths, common bonds that should serve to unite us and not allow ourselves to succumb to those who seek to divide us, using our two great religions, for their own selfish advantages.

“We should jointly pray against the tragic incidents of kidnapping and banditry and the desperate quest for political power expressed through blackmail against the existence of our country as a united entity.

“We must resist the temptation to retreat into our communities. I urge our political and religious leaders as well as traditional rulers to encourage our citizens to turn towards one another in love and compassion,” the statement read in part.

President Buhari said further that it is noteworthy and delightful to see “Christians breaking fast and in some instances, extending goodwill and gifts to Muslim faithful during the Ramadan.”

He added that “This model also shone through with Muslim groups joining Christian festivities. These are practices that promote brotherhood and forgiveness.”

The President, therefore, urged Nigerians to continue to observe all COVID-19 prevention measures and celebrate responsibly during the holidays.
