Southern Cameroons has more than 100,000 Refugees in Nigeria, registered and not . The UN and other Organizations have been to some parts and states, yet the case of Taraba state remains still very wanting due to the distance and bad roads as well and the lack of volunteers to get to the borders and fish out some those dying in forests and bushes daily. Shey Tatah Sevidzem of Scandy Media Platform has been to some of these abandoned places with the support and assistance of his followers and network to create more awareness.

We went to one of the most dreaded places Nkiri 1& 2, inacessible with strong hired bikes thanks to support from Caroline M Ayuk, Nkeu Ndum Angafor Wo UK, we also had support from NFU-Bongbati of Denmark, Scandy media followers and fans : a message from Ambazonia front line leaders and IG : These are women in a valley hard to access known as Nkiri 1&2: The distribution took place after training on how the women can take care of themselves: About 95% of these women are from Lus,an outskirt of Nkambe in Donga Mantung County. We are grateful to all who contributed to this event : We intend visiting them again, getting kids to school and please do not hesitate to chip in something to reach out to those we could not: Shey Tatah from Scandy Media platform

Lagos state Governor Sanwo-Olu gives 20k each to 315 returnees from South Africa By Uju Maryann

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu gave N20,000 to each of the second batch of 315 Nigerians evacuated from South Africa on Wednesday, September 18th .

The fresh batch of returnees arrived a week after another 187 Nigerians fleeing xenophobia came back from South Africa. The joyous returnees arrived at the Cargo Wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos at about 7.21p.m aboard an Air Peace B777 aircraft with registration number 5N-BWI.  

The flight, which originated from the OR Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg was received by Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission and Air Peace Chairman, Allen Onyema. Also on ground was Jermaine Sanwo-Olu, Senior Special Assistant to the Lagos State Governor on Diaspora.

Presenting the token on behalf of Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Jermaine Sanwo-Olu said that the money was a palliative for the returnees saying that the returnees from Lagos State would be transferred to the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF), where they would be trained on skill acquisition.

Abike Dabiri-Erewa also told newsmen that the returnees would be profiled according to their states and local governments of origin to complement the federal government’s effort in reintegrating them. She said apart from giving the returnees stipends to get back to their respective states, there was also a medical team on ground to provide assistance to those with medical conditions.

Why term the 2019 elections in Nigeria, the worst?

2019 election was the worst ever, it will take Nigeria 40yrs to recover – Sheikh Gunmi By Uju Maryann

Popular Islamic scholar and preacher, Sheikh Ahmed Gunmi, described the 2019 General elections as the worst in the history of Nigeria.

The Islamic cleric made this statement while hosting the General Overseer of the Evangelical Bible Outreach Ministry Jos, and the Convener of the Movement of Initiative of a Brighter and Better Nigeria Prophet Isa El-Buba at his Kaduna residence on Thursday September 19, said President Buhari rode into power on corruption which he claimed he was fighting.

According to Sheik Gunmi, that it will take 40 years to recover from the ”damage’ President Buhari has done to the economy. 

GUNMI SAID, ‘THE LAST ELECTION WAS THE WORST EVER. ELECTION SHOULD NEVER BE RIGGED AGAIN. WE INVITED THE INEC, APC AND PDP, AND TOLD THEM, ‘THIS IS WHAT WE WILL DO TO STOP RIGGING IN 2015.’ WHEN THE ELECTION CAME, WE REALISED WE WERE HANDICAPPED BECAUSE NIGERIANS WERE IGNORANT BUT THEY FAILED TO REALISE THAT NIGERIANS COULD CREATE AN INDEPENDENT POLL.

“IN 2015, WE SAW THAT INEC WAS NOT READY FOR A FLAWLESS ELECTION. THEN ANOTHER GOVERNMENT CAME WITH THE MANTRA OF CHANGE AND ANTI-CORRUPTION. I EXPECTED THE 2019 ELECTION TO BE NEAT, BUT I FOUND IT TO BE THE WORST I HAVE EVER WITNESSED.

“MANY PEOPLE CAME TO ME FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY; SOME CAME WITH VIDEOS AND TOLD ME THOSE MILLIONS OF VOTES YOU SEE WERE COMING FROM JUST A FEW HUNDREDS.

“WHEN THE RESULTS WERE ANNOUNCED, THEY SAID, ‘WE TOLD YOU.’ SO, WHAT IS THE CARD READER MEANT FOR? HOW CAN YOU SAY YOU ARE FIGHTING CORRUPTION AND YOU ARE RIDING ON CORRUPTION TO COME BACK AND CREATE ECONOMIC DAMAGE THAT WILL TAKE MAYBE 40 YEARS TO CORRECT?”

El-Buba on his own part hailed the Islamic cleric for standing by the truth. He also pointed out that things are deteoriating in the North and its now time to salvage the region. 

EL-BUBA SAID, “I REALLY WANT TO COMMEND YOU FOR STANDING OUT TO SPEAK THE TRUTH, NOT JUST TO THE AUTHORITIES, BUT ALSO TO THE FOLLOWERS.

“WITH THE SITUATION OF THINGS IN THE COUNTRY, WE NEED TO PUT OUR MINDS TOGETHER AND SALVAGE THE COUNTRY. WE CANNOT CONTINUE TO LEAVE THE CONTROL OF THINGS IN THE HANDS OF POLITICIANS, IF NOT, IT WILL CONTINUE LIKE THIS.

“I HAVE TRAVERSED THE WHOLE COUNTRY AND THE NORTH IS WORST. THINGS ARE DEGENERATING THE MORE; THE POVERTY IS UNBEARABLE.”
