Tinubu: Reason I Chose Shettima As Vice, Despite A Muslim

Tinubu leaves for France

The All Progressives Congress, APC, National leader and presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has declared that the choice of Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate despite his religion is determined by the need for Nigeria to forge ahead toward development and prosperity.

Tinubu explained this on Sunday in his
statement announcing his running mate to Nigerians.

My choice of Shettima

He said: “With the choice of Shettima, the APC is running a Muslim-Muslim ticket in the 2023 presidential election, a rarity in the nation’s political history.”

“Except in 1993 when MKO Abiola, a muslim and Babagana Kingibe, also a muslim, as running mate, contested the presidential election, consideration has always been given to religious diversity.”

Tinubu proceeded to say that inorder to forge ahead, religious, regional and ethnic sentiments should not solely determine the path to take.

Tinubu APC National leader

What he said

“Today, I announce my selection with pride because I have made it not based on religion or to please one community or the other. I made this choice because I believe this is the man who can help me bring the best governance to all Nigerians, period, regardless of their religious affiliation or considerations of ethnicity or region.

“May I say this to all of you, especially to those who will be disappointed in my selection based on religious considerations.

“I will not and cannot ignore the religious concerns and ethnic sensitivities of our people. Taking them into due consideration is an important part of good and able governance. But religion, ethnicity and region cannot always and fully determine our path.

“To forge ahead as a nation toward development and prosperity, we must break free of old binds. We must recalibrate our political calculations to where competence and fairness matter more than reductive demographics.

“This is why, today, I announce the selection of SENATOR KASHIM SHETTIMA as my partner and running mate in the mission to advance and reclaim the fortunes of this great country and the hopes of its people.

“Senator Kasim Shettima’s career in politics and beyond shows that he is eminently qualified not only to deliver that all important electoral victory, but, also, step into the shoes of the Vice President. As a man with the talent, maturity, strength of character, and patriotism he has my implicit confidence and faith.

“I am aware that many will continue focus on a particular detail, the question of his faith.

“However, if we truly understand the challenges upon us a nation, then we must also see the imperative of placing competence in governance above religious sentiment.

“In 1993, Nigerians embrace Chief MKO Abiola and a fellow Muslim running mate, Baba Gana Kingibe in one of our fairest elections ever held.

“The spirit of 1993 is upon us again in 2023.

“As such, the ticket we present today represents a milestone in our political history. It symbolizes our party’s determination to be a leading light among political parties in Africa

POS Operators Gets Warning From Police

POS

Warning

The Police Command in Lagos state on Saturday warned Point of Sales (POS) operators against using their trade to promote extortion at police stations and other areas.

The Command’s spokesman, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, gave the warning in his Twitter handle, monitored by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Directives

Hundeyin said the warning was part of directives from the Force headquarters, Abuja, against extortion and corruption in some police formations.

“It has been observed over time that some roving POS operators specialise in hanging around police stations.”

“Investigations reveal that their target customers are innocent Nigerians being extorted by some recalcitrant police officers.”

POS

“Their presence around the stations has made the extortion game a lot easier.

“While the Force continually purges itself of these bad officers, it has become imperative that the activities of POS operators around police stations be regulated.

“Some of them have been identified to be enablers of extortion. This regulation is in line with our mandate of not just detecting, but also preventing crime,” he noted.

Hundeyin warned that POS operators found to have knowingly enabled extortion with the police in any areas would be treated as an accomplice.

Unconfirmed sources have told NAN that some POS operators were arrested near some police stations in Lagos, but were released after warning to keep away by some DPOs. (NAN)

A few of the passengers kidnapped from a Kaduna-bound train in March have regained freedom and now reuniting with families.

A Kaduna-based publisher, Malam Tukur Mamu, disclosed this on Saturday.

Malam Tukur, who had earlier negotiated the release of 11 passengers, said the kidnappers have released seven more victims.

The abductees  were identified as Muhammad Daiyabu Paki, Bosede Olurotimi, Abubakar Zubairu, Alhassan Sule, Sadiq Ango Abdullahi, Aliyu Usman and Muhammad Abuzar Afzal, a Pakistani.

Mamu’s Statement

“I want to assure the nation that everything that was achieved today was singlehandedly initiated and arranged by me with the full support and prayers of my principal, Sheikh Gumi.”

“That is why I keep emphasising that government has the power to end the agony of this innocent victims in one day.

This is just one individual that sacrificed his life and even integrity. There is no military solution to the current security debacle in Nigeria.

When you sincerely engage these guys, even though wicked with misguided religious beliefs, they are listening. I have sufficient evidence to prove that they do listen. It is this power of engagement and sincerity that resulted to the release of this seven victims.

“In whatever I do, I don’t need or require any reward from anybody but from Allah and I hope the nation we sacrificed our lives for will recognise us,” Mamu said in a statement.

Military takeover

He also added that the released victims had been handed over to the military and were currently on their way to Kaduna.

The location they gave is remote, sensitive and risky. There was a military checkpoint before penetrating the forest.

My team was stopped by the soldiers but when they told the military our mission they contacted the GCO and he immediately gave approval for them to proceed.

And after the victims were successfully evacuated, travelling through over 40 kilometers in the forest, they were given a military escort back to Kaduna at the checkpoint,” he said.

In a video released in May, Abdullahi, who won PDP ticket for Kaduna legislative election while in captivity, had begged for the Federal Government’s intervention, saying most of the 62 abducted victims were sick.

Legislative Statement

He had said: “We have been here for 62 days. Most of us here are sick and we are not in good condition. Everyday, the situation gets deteriorates. We are appealing to the Federal Government to come to our aid before we start losing our lives.” (Daily Trust)

BLOGGING: HOW TO MAKE A LIVING ONLINE

HOW TO MAKE A LIVING BLOGGING

Blogging has taken a huge part of the information world. It is now the driven force to making anyone rich in 6-figures in days.

Blogging

This is an act of writing a blog. Blogging has a deep history to writing and in this contemporary time and 90% of tech users, one way or the other performs relative functions on the daily either as a reader or a blogger.

Sometimes, it’s very hard to believe that there are people who do not step outside the comfort of their home in search of their daily bread, despite the economic down turn in some part of the world amid global technological advancement.

Often times, people asks the following questions:

  • What are they into?
  • Is it difficult?
  • Do I need to buy anything to start?
  • Is it for only those that can write?
  • How can I start making money with it?

Well! Let’s look into the questions one after the other

What are they into?- Blogging

They are into blogging (the business of information ). Sincerely, Information is the contemporary source of all livelihoods.

So, if you are not doing the business of information then I wonder how beneficial the contemporary world will be to you.

Is it difficult?

No! Blogging is not difficult when you approach it the right way. Though, it might not start making you money in one day or two days. But, if you could build a working method for yourself and reaching out to the right audience, it could start making you money on the third day.

Do I need to buy anything to start?

Indeed! You need some technological tools to startup, but you do not need to have a huge capital to start up, since the internet is a global space full of opportunities, there are free offers for all the technological tools required to kick start the business.

Some of the technological tools required are:

  1. Smartphone /laptop
  2. Internet data
  3. Domain name
  4. Website hosting account
  5. Website

I am sure by now you would be wondering that you have the first and the second item. So, how do you get the third item (Domain name)? It is easy. You could get it for free or paid.

Free Domain

In other to get your domain name for free to start blogging ( information business), you need to sign up an account on Google blogger, WordPress, Wix ( these websites gives you items 3,4,5 for free at no cost)  or use any of the free domain name  offers from any domain name services such as namcheap.com e.t.c.

Paid Domain

Domain name is cheap depending on the kind you would like to use. Nowadays, we have a lot of domains but as a starter I would not advice you to opt in for a top level domain (TLD) except you have the money for their monthly or annual subscription plans.

Since you are getting started I would recommend you get a .com.ng domain extension, which would only cost you #1,300 naira max for a year. Faire deal right?

In other to have a paid hosting account and a website, namecheap, bluehost, godaddy powers different affordable hosting plans at little cost. For starters, go with the beginner’s plan which would cost like $14 equivalent to #8000 yearly.

So if you calculate the domain amount and the hosting plan, that will be a total of #10,000 approximately. All these for a year before renewal.

Now, after getting domain name hosting ready, you need a website and for starters you need a two pages website at a smaller cost of #20,000.

Adding all these costs together, we would finally arrive at a #30,000 naira investment for life.

So, now you know you could actually start your own business with #30,000 naira as a Nigerian.

Is it only for those that can write?

Interestingly, blogging is not limited to just textual contents alone. You may be a photographer, you can blog your work, and you may be a singer, a producer, a movie editor, a game lover, a narrator, a fashion designer, a hair maker, a barber, a furniture maker, an artist, a realtor, a pastor, an imam, a teacher , stay home mum, stay home dad, baby sitter e.t.c. Anyone can do it.

How can I start making money with it?

After fulfilling all requirements mentioned above to getting started, the next thing is to choose a niche or a business category to start the quest in blogging.

Choosing a niche or business category for blogging

Over time, people get confused when we use the word niche when it comes to online business in fact, when it comes to blogging.

According to Google resource from dictionary.com

A niche is a place or position that is appropriate for someone or something, especially due to being very specific and different from others.

So, choosing a niche is quite easy. In that business or profession you are into, consider an aspect you are very good at and which gives you comfort plus you should be passionate about it. When you discover this, do the following:

  • Plan on what you would start informing people about on the regular
  • Create content, remember not necessarily textual contents.
  • Ensure you are making something unique i.e. It’s not been done before or you are doing it in your own new way.
  • Build audience on your social media platform and gain attention while following and contributing to stuff dropped by other users. As you do, ensure you drop a reference link to your website. It is called backlink.

Doing all of these, it would surprise you, knowing that there are thousands of online users out there, sourcing for that kind of info you are pitching on your blog website and with that you have overcome the hassles of traffic generation to your website (This is the bedrock of your online business).

Osodeke said, “Let government tell usthey have finished testing the UTAS and sign the agreement, then tomorrow we will call off the strike.

“We challenge the government, when would they sign the agreement? When would they accept UTAS? These are the two questions we should ask Nigerian government,” he stated.

In line with this , a few members of the public has tweeted their reaction.
