[ Masterweb Reports: Dr. Perry Brimah reports ] - Nigeria's Acting President Yemi Osinbajo gave a touching speech on he commemoration of Biafra, 50 years after. "Greater together than apart" was the caption. But while the speech was eloquent and intellectually earnestly persuasive as is the character of the "system stabilizer" #2 man, the reality is far less eloquent, and even less persuasive. The truth is, what the Acting president delivered was a speech and an opinion, his opinion. 
 
I'll like to present the Truth and the Reality.
 
The reality is: there is agitation for a referendum. There is agitation for secession. There is also agitation for regionalism. We have seen and heard this in every single confab organised. We hear this on the streets and in the media every blessed day. There are hundreds of thousands if not millions of Nigerians clamoring for the secession of Biafra. There are equal numbers clamoring for an Odudua republic as there are multitudes fighting for republics in the north.
 
The truth is that there is disunity and lack of a sense of patriotism by those decided upon disintegration. Two years of APC has done little but increased and legitimized the call in more ways than one. The truth is, how much better are we together in geographical territory but not at heart? Is there any statistical evidence that we are better together? I am yet to see it.
 
The truth is that we were not amalgamated as one unit. We were created wisely by the British we love to accuse as a conglomeration of several parts. Nigeria was born as a true federation. Aguiyi Ironsi thought he was solving a problem when he decided to stitch Nigeria together as one single unit. Was this a wise move?
 
President Muhammadu Buhari campaigning under the umbrella of the CPC promised to restore true federalism in Nigeria. APC party leader Bola Tinubu has made the same call, predicting doom without it. The truth is that for some reason when in power, paid salaries from the government coffers, everything seems rosy and it is easy to say that we are better together. But for those deprived of all opportunity, is it so?
 
The truth is that correct me if I am wrong, but 95% of the South East did not vote for Professor Yemi Osinbajo and Buhari. As horrible as some of us regard Goodluck Jonathan, including many who voted for him, they would rather have him than have the Buhari-Osinbajo combination. How do we reconcile the fact that a section of us would rather have Jonathan who supervised the deaths of tens if not hundreds of thousands of Nigerians in the north, as leader than have the current regime? These are serious questions that we cannot simply wish away with eloquent presentations of our opinions.
 
Respectfully I listened to the Acting President narrate how he lost his friend Emeka as he described the sorrowful nature of war. But the reality is that we are at war. This is not a country in peace times. I have lost my friends, Ahmed, Murtala and Baba in the northeast. I have lost my friend, Anako in the South south. Many have lost their friends, killed by the Nigerian army in Onitsha and Zaria. And even more continue to lose their friends and loved ones every day, killed by rampaging terror herdsmen who this government sometimes pays to placate. Is this any different from the war Osinbajo recounts? Are these loses any kinder on the heart...because these were lost for no purpose compared to Emeka whose life was lost in a quest for Biafran independence? This is our current reality. This is the truth.
 
While Pastor Osinabajo referenced nations like Italy that have stayed as one, there are examples of others like India that have split into many pieces – Pakistan and Bangladesh– as has the former Soviet Union. Korea into north and south. Indeed Malaysia that we now adore birthed Singapore; both strong nations. As also there are examples of split nations like East and West Germany that have come together. You can find any kind of example you wish in the world. Nigeria's unique path has little to do with the paths of those and everything to do with them perhaps. Perhaps we may split, but also perhaps after we split we may come back together, who knows. Keeping our heads in the sand and stifling agitation is a home recipe for making time bombs.
 
The truth is that so long as the government fails to listen to the opinions of its people, so long as the government fails to listen to the agitations of its people and fails to respond with clear actions to their pains, all we build today may be lost just as Libya and Syria were torn to the ground. According to the universal laws of entropy, disorganization is the natural trend and occurs rapidly. Two years have been dangerously wasted. It's time to get down to this pressing business. The agitations of the peoples of Nigeria must be listened to and hearkened to with the three Rs on the table: Referendum, Regionalism and Restructuring. Or rather than be the ones that prevented calamity, we may be the ones who promoted it.

[ Masterweb Reports: Isiaka Wakili reports ] - The Federal Government is making a fresh loan application to increase its initial $500m Chinese loan to $774m for the completion of the East-West Road in Niger Delta.
 
The Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Usani Uguru Usani, disclosed this to State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.
 
He said: "No administration, to the best of my knowledge, within a democratic setting, has been more committed than this present government. And demonstration in this is the action of this administration to go ahead and seek extra budgetary special loan, credit from China to the tune of $500m.
 
"Now, we are making a fresh application to increase that to $774 million to be able to tackle an aspect of that road and this came under five of the special projects nominated by the president to see that work doesn’t stop. And if you look at our budget, as lean as it is, about 50% goes on the allocation to the East-West Road."
 
The minister also stated that for 2017, N8bn counterpart fund was proposed for the credit facility, "We are getting from China. So, we’re committed, but it is just impossible to say we’ll be able to allocate enough funds because the competing demands do not allow satisfaction in every sector of the economy. So, it’s a problem for us."

[ Masterweb Reports: Eugene Agha reports ] - There are strong indications that about nine policemen were shot, while over 20 suspected members of the Niger Delta militants were killed yesterday in a gun duel between them at Ode Omi waterway in Ogun State.
 
It was gathered that the policemen are attached to the Marine section of the force.
 
It was also gathered that the policemen were on a search and rescue mission to free six abducted students of the Lagos State Model College Ignonla Epe.
 
It also learnt that the abductors are now demanding for N400 million as ransom for the victims.
 
Gunmen had on Thursday morning stormed the Lagos State Model College, Igbonla, Epe and abducted six students.
 
A source said that three of the policemen who were shot are still unconscious as at Saturday evening.
 
They were said to have engaged the hoodlums in a heavy gun battle in the riverrine community in Ojebu area of Ogun State.
 
The nine policemen were as at Saturday evening still undergoing medical treatment at the police hospital in Ikoyi area of Lagos State, it was gathered.
 
A serious gun battle had ensued when suspected militants sighted some policeman around the area, it was gathered.
 
A police source, who spoke on condition of anonymity said, "policemen from the Marine Police and others were on the trail of the kidnappers when the gun battle ensued".
 
It was gathered that the militants, who were over 50, engaged the policemen in a serious duel, which lasted over six hours on the waterways.

Another source said the police would liaise with the Navy on mop up operation.
 
"You are asking of the dead bodies of the militants, it was like a war situation. We can’t just begin to pick dead bodies in the creek, there will be a mop up, but we must be accompanied by the Navy," he said.

[ Masterweb Reports: Dr. Perry Brimah reports ] - It was welcoming listening to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo declare this Children's Day that the Buhari administration would protect children from violence. We do believe and hope the Presidency knows that in keeping its promise, children must be protected from violence-enabling environments, chief of which is the Almajirinchi system.
 
10 million Nigerian children are prone to violence due to the Almajiri child abandonment education system. The Almajiri system is virtually exclusive to Nigeria and environs and is a cultural aberration that has been hidden under misinterpretations of religion. Its ties to religion are as weak as the so-called "hadith," "seek knowledge even unto China," which has been declared to be fabricated
 
Only the government can make real change. Much advocacy by the conscientious public has done its part to bring an end to the culture. Programs like ENDS' AlmajiriProject, have promoted a change in the thoughts on this practice and the urgent necessity for religious authorities to speak out against it. Gratefully, the highest Muslim authority in Nigeria, Amir-ul-Momineen Sa’adu Abubakar has declared the Almajiri practice “unislamic” with no basis in the faith. There is no better window and no more suitable government to outlaw this social aberration than now and the Buhari-Osinbajo administration.
 
If the photo-op with 80 liberated Chibok girls is a thing to be remembered, then how will Nigeria remember Buhari if and when he liberates millions of exploited and abandoned children of Nigeria, who live unrecognized and die unregistered? 
 
Buhari will permanently change the destiny of the north of Nigeria and Nigeria as a whole if he outlaws this system and commences the depopulating and dismantling of Almajiri boarding, begging "school" shackles.
 
Every child has the right to a family. No child should be exploited to beg to pay for book and board. There is no modification of Almajiri schools. Such an education system is illegal and deprives the child of his right to a family and protection from brutality and exploitation. The laws are there as are the religious condemnations. All that is left is for the Buhari government to make the pronouncement and command the police to do their job. 
 
No child should be abandoned hence forth. All children in Almajiri schools would be registered and reunited with their families. The government social protection department needs support any families of children incapable of taking care of itself. All unidentified children must gradually be transferred to proper orphanages. In the future, families that cannot take care of their children must contact the government who should take it from there. Abandoning the child to the slavery system of an Almajiri shackle must no longer be an option. Quranic education can and should only be obtained on a day-class basis, with children returning home after class.
 
It has been two years and in another two the contract to rule Nigeria will be over. 10 million Nigerian children and more to come deserve the dividends of the new administration. The time to act is now.

[ Masterweb Reports: John Chuks Azu reports ] - Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has differed on calls for secession by a section of the country. He said the affinities and friendships across the country are a reminder that unity is possible in Nigeria.
The acting president, while examining the resurgence of agitation for Biafra said no country is perfect as many such as Italy, Spain, UK, France and USA are made up of peoples with diversities, yet the citizens stay together.
Osinbajo, who was the keynote speaker at the anniversary conference on the Nigeria-Biafra civil war titled: ‘Memory and nation-building Biafra: 50 years after, a sober reflection,’ which held in Abuja yesterday, declared that the country is greater together than apart.
Also speaking, former president Olusegun Obasanjo said from inception Nigeria has not had a national leader saying, "The truth is at independence, we had three countries in one. And that problem has never really been solved till today. The outcome of that continues to be bugging us as we go along in our development as a nation."
On his part, the President of Ohaneze Ndigbo, John Nnia Nwodo hailed generosity of Nigerians for the level of people-to-people reconciliation that transpired immediately after the civil war, as other Nigerians welcomed Igbo survivors back into the fold after the war.
He however decried the official ‘policy of impoverishment’ of the defeated Biafrans after the civil war through the 20 pounds bank withdrawals, which disposed Igbos of their savings, the indigenization of multi-national companies and political marginalization.
Nwodo, who proposed a minutes silence for the victims of the war, called for steps to avoid a repeat of the civil war through equality and fair play, maintaining that "unity is not an end in itself."
