The General Overseer of Mount Zion Faith Global Liberation Ministry Inc. Nnewi, Anambra state, Bishop Abraham Chris Udeh has called on the National Assembly to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari over his alleged move to rig the 2019 election.

Udeh said his appeal to the National Assembly stemmed from the fact that he, “saw in a vision that Buhari’s refusal to give assent to the electoral sequence was a proof that he actually wants to manipulate and rig the election.”

Speaking with News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, yesterday, the clergyman said Buhari will rig himself back into power if he’s not impeached now.

He also admonished the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to field a popular candidate that can defeat Buhari in 2019.

Udeh noted that Nigerians are tired of the Buhari administration, hence the need for PDP to field a popular Presidential candidate.

PDP should not allow the All Progressives Congress, APC, to manipulate them into fielding an unpopular candidate.

Udeh stressed that PDP was the only hope Nigerians have, hence they should bring out a popular candidate that can chase Buhari out of office because “Nigerians are tired of the antics of Buhari as a person and APC as a Jihadist party.”

He added, “So, I am therefore calling on the national assembly to either override him and adopt the electoral sequence as a working document or get him impeached now before he will manipulate the election and rig himself into power again.”

The Federal Government has suspended the further evacuation of stranded Nigerians overseas.

The development, according to Foreign Affairs Minister Geoffrey Onyeama is to allow take-off of a new policy on the evacuation of Nigerians.

Onyeama said henceforth evacuated Nigerians would not have to go straight into a 14-day government monitored isolation if they test negative from their country of origin.

The Minister said the new policy will take effect from next week.

Consequently, he said further evacuation process has been suspended to give way for the take-off of the new policy.

He said with the new policy evacuees will have to be tested at most nine days before their flight takes off.

He said those who test positive will not be allowed on the flight

The new policy, he said will give the government enough latitude to fly more Nigerians home.

Nigeria has evacuated 989 stranded citizens with 265 from the United Arab Emirates; United Kingdom (253); United States (160); Saudi Arabia (292) and Lebanon (57)

[BREAKING] School Reopening: FG Considers Morning, Afternoon Classes

The Federal Government says it is thinking of sectionalizing classes for primary, secondary, and tertiary institutions in the country ahead of school reopening amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, stated this on Wednesday during a briefing by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 in Abuja.

The minister, who faulted the reports that schools would reopen in the country on June 8, said the government could not afford to take any costly risk, especially as it regards the safety of pupils and students in the country.

He said, “Until we are sure these children can go to school, return safely and not bring up with them COVID-19 and infect people who are more susceptible than they are, then we are running a huge risk and God forbid, in our hurry, something happens to our children, I am not sure how anybody will be able to retrieve what has been lost.”

Nwajiuba said the ministry was being guided by the advice of experts including those of the World Health Organisation, noting that the decision to reopen schools would be carefully arrived at because education is on the concurrent list of the Nigerian Constitution.

He appealed to private owners of schools to co-operate with the government in ensuring a safe reopening.

“We are going to publish a specification on what we expect COVID-19 or post-COVID-19 reopening to look like. We are not talking about coping with COVID-19 but in spite of COVID-19, we expect that we will adapt.

“For a country that has over 115,000 primary schools, you will understand that 35,000 of these who are private must agree to set up the same standard in other to allow children to go in.

“We may have classes in the morning and classes in the afternoon so that we will have the whole of the infrastructure divided, provided they can serve us. I am not sure we will have classes at night. But we can do with morning and afternoon for now,” he explained.

An Igbosere Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Wednesday sent for psychiatric evaluation a nursing mother, Oluwafunmilayo Adisa, suspected of killing her baby.

Magistrate (Mrs) K. O. Doja-Ojo remanded Adisa, 22, at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), following an application by the Lagos State Office of the Public Defender (OPD).

The OPD is representing the suspect pro bono.

Its Director, Dr Babajide Martins, applied that Adisa be sent to and remanded at LASUTH “for psychiatric evaluation to help determine the state of her mental health.”

He based his application on Section 217 (3) of Lagos State Administration of Criminal Justice Law (ACJL), 2015.

Magistrate Doja-Ojo granted the prayer and adjourned till June 26, for the outcome of the tests.

Adisa is suspected by the police to have drowned her one-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Oluwanifemi, in a bucket of water.

According to a temporary charge marked C/42d/2020 attached to the OPD’s application, “Adisa Oluwafunmilayo on May 11, 2020, at about 2020 hours at Plot 222, 21/211 Road Gowon Estate, Alimosho Local Government Area (LGA) Lagos… unlawfully killed one Adisa Oluwanifemi, female, aged one and a half years, by drowning her in a bucket of water and thereby committed an offense punishable under Section 223 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.”

It was signed by Deputy Superintendent (DSP) Yetunde Cardoso.

Speaking afterward, Martins said the OPD is representing Adisa in line with its statutory responsibility of providing free legal service for the indigent and vulnerable.

He said OPD came to her rescue by providing free legal representation and ensuring that the suspect was timely moved from the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti to the Federal Psychiatric Hospital, Oshodi as an outpatient pending her arraignment for further judicial action.
