Boko Haram is fighting for justice —PDP Chieftain

National-Chairman-PDP-Alhaji-Bamanga-Tukur

The PDP’s National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, on Tuesday said that Boko Haram members are fighting for justice.

Alhaji Tukur said this in Abuja when he received PDP members from Gombe State.

He said there must be justice in the country for peace to reign.

According to him, many Nigerians feel aggrieved and seek various means of airing their grievances.

He however regretted that the activities of the sect were preventing some northerners from travelling to their home states.

Tukur said there was no way angry people would control their anger when there was nothing on their stomachs.

He said, “Let there be peace in the North so that we can have security.

“We can’t even travel again because of the insecurity in the region. Boko Haram is fighting for justice. Boko Haram is another name for justice.

“People feel aggrieved. They are angry because they are hungry. Unless we remove the hunger, we too may not be able to rest.

“We should remember that a child who says his mother would not sleep will also not sleep.”

The former governor of old Gongola State said he accepted to be honoured by the members of the party from the North-East on Saturday in his village because he wanted people know that things were not working well with the people in rural areas.

He said, “People would be wondering why I took the reception to my village in Jada. And they would be asking why not a place like Abuja, where we have good roads and all that.

“I did so, so that people would know what is happening in rural areas. Those that were there must have seen the bad roads. We must help people who cannot help themselves.

“That is why we are in government. You cannot do anything unless you are committed to it. We must build this party on equity and justice.”

    What is wrong with this man. If Boko Haram is fighting for justice are the innocents they are killing the people that denied them of justice? I think Bamanga Tukur is going mad or he is a financial of Boko Haram for him to say this rubbish. hissssss

    By killing innocent men,women & kids in coldblood;by bombing markets & schools;by bombarding churches and shooting peaceful worshipers.Mr tukur,if this is ur idea of justice,then u’ve not only spat on the graves of hundreds of our children fallen by the guns of BH but u’ve also succeeded in letting the whole world know how bloodthirsty & barbaric u & ur partylikes are..& its our fervent prayer that u’ll b the next target so that justice would be complete

    I sincerely believe that something has gone wrong with Bamanga Tukur. Why look for the sponsors of Boko Haram when the PDP Chieftain is openingly endorsing their killing of innocent people in the name of ‘Justice’. I think he should be investigated.

    It is a pity that the National Chairman of PDP does not know the meaning of juctice. May be his age would not allow him to know the difference between juctice and terrorism. HABA CHAIRMAN.

    Who meted out these injustices that boko haram is fighting for, from what particular time to when? Oh, that Jonathan shouldn’t have contested for the presidency so that a notherner could continue. The truth behind all these is gradually coming out.

    May 16, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    Its such a huge disappointment that somebody as high placed as bamanga can make these comments. Poor Jonathan! These power hungry people are out to frustrate you just because you are not a northerner. They are all working together, those close to you and those far away from you, all are out to achieve one thing…………kick you out. Our mighty Jesus will defend you.

  25. Matthew Ebuloku

    May 16, 2012 at 9:54 pm

    Truth is one thing that is hard to destroy. For Bamanga Turkur of all people to publicly say that boko haram is fighting for justice means that northern elders are deeply involved in the wanton destruction of innocent lives and properties of unprotected citizens of this country. Now that all the federating regions are quite ready to part ways we shouldn’t separate by killing and destroying lives and properties. This ‘ll cause a great deal of setback.
    The hour has come for referrendum that ‘ll lead us to peaceful and not violent disintergration.

    Tukur,if Boko Haram are angry and hungry, are they eating those they have killed in the country, most especially in the church? You, poor leaders of little or no knowledge, greedily keep your your people in darkness. You can’t deliver good things of your poor knowledge betrayed by your careless utterances. Go back to modern primary schools where kids would readily enlighten and tell you what to say as a leader in public. Did you go to school at all ?

    Nigerian and all security agents, what are u people waiting for when the real sponsor of BH has reveal himself. By the statement of PDP chairman Mr. Mumu Tukur reveals that he is strongly behind BH of their insurgent and he should be properly investicated and sentence to death by acid bath. Why are BH not targeting mosque? If the federal government does not take action against this fool I swear, there would be a second civil war in this country or better still, this country will be split into several parts as possible. May God almighty punish Tukur and his entire race and keep his soul for eternal condemnation. I swear, if I can see him in person, I will feed his flesh to crocodile. Fool.

    I don’t even know why so call north should be part of Nigeria. From all indications, 95 percent of northern population are immigrant from Niger, Chad and part of cameroon and I will suggest all northern parts of Nigeria been disjoint and given to the above countries. Some of their elders are fool and they should go back to school and be properly oriented about Brotherhood.

    don’t blame all our leaders in nigeria bcos 99 percent of them are just holding certificate, they are not creative. I believe wit God power dat very soon no nigerian except foolish wil waste their finger and vote al dos criminal calling themself leader and al dis useless leader dat cannot protect their people. By dat time leader would b voted base on their technology. By dat time all d world will know dat nigerian are bless with good talented people and job wil be available 4 ALL bcos our major problem is UNEMPLOYMENT.

    Let the federal Government know that it has not failed, it will not fail whatever level the violent situation in the country might be deliberately carried to by the evil people. However the moment the federal government give in to these criminals and terrorist(that are now drunk with the blood of the innocent -crying for justice) in the name of dialogue, the Government may have then killed what might be seen as the last hope of righting the wrong. Moreover history would not forget the man who presided over the government that failed to give millions of souls a reason to hope for the triumph of good over evil no mather the cost. Note: If you dialogued with these demons our innocent brothers had died in vain.

  54. eris paul

    May 17, 2012 at 1:56 am

    Tukur’s way of defining ‘justice’ is dangerous, foolish & ridiculous.If standing on the heads of others, destroying churches & killing innocent souls is the knowledge of true justice, Tukur is outside the map of education. He is a man of very low intelligence, he is a cool blooded animal whose bite is poisonous in public office. This not time to learn the limitations of kidness, Tukur should go to his viliage & use his head as a sacrificial lamb & free the heads of others whose lives are gratitudes to God & not scapegoats. Human beings can be transformed, but animals you cannot, that’s what we face in the North. How can a man let himself so down in such a virtue & he is still in a public office? Just few years of South South’s rule they have started crying blood? Let him resign & wait for his turn to sacrifice Nigerians. We will not allow people to scratch our backs after sharing our own environment with them in the name of brotherhood. We are also keeping our eyes open on the vultures of this country. No matter how clever a cat thinks, he must know that his bargain was not made with the man or the dog. So if the Buhari’s & Tukur’s think they are mejorities & could ride on us, we will tell them that the Land Use Degree Act of the seventies was not made with the Ijaws.

Any way let them continue marrying 7wifes with many almajiri, the average begger in north have many wifes with a lot of almajiri. So who create their poverty for them, not talk of religious mentality and sharia law which the use it to draw Nigeria backward shame on them

    This is to show you the calibre of leadership we have in PDP and in Nigeria. the man Mamanga Tukur wants to be on the good books of Boko Haram…so the bombing of churches and killing students who gather for fellowship is the justice they are looking for, may the next bomb be in his house and upon his wife and children so that justice will be well served. divide the country Jareee..we cant live with mad people

    It is sad that certain individuals in the country are so myopic…the poverty in the north goes way back to the 1960’s. The north has been a victim of its own leaders,right from the days off the revered Aminu Kano…what happens to all the allocation that the northern governors receive?.. go to Gombe, it is appalling. Let them stop making muslims out as illiterates…and islam as a jihad driven religion for buhari he does not speak for the north…he is a frustrated politician..

    May 17, 2012 at 7:15 am

    It is very painful peter,but asking God for the impossibilities is want HE will not do. Mamanga tukur has said something and is for you to search the truth bearing in mind that the press is not helping matters.

Infact d brohala over it won’t die down in many yrs to come. But here,it’s nothing;he n his brothers are sacred cows n untouchable. To make matters worst,this brain damaged,demented n senile idiot sits over a party dat is in Governance n to which I belong to! I feel sorry for him n his cohorts. Let it pain them harder even to their bone marrows-Weda they like it or not,GEJ is there for 4 yrs. D problem is dat he refuses to correct d injustice done to d south 50+yrs ago. Instead he is playing nationalist. We in south are keenly WATCHING!!!

    IT IS HIGH TIME THE UNPOPULAR BOKO HARAM WHICH SEEMS TO BE A FORMULATED POLITICAL EMBARRASSMENT TOTALLY ERADICATED IN NIGERIA. …TO BE SINCERE, NIGERIAN ELITES SHOULD BE A ROLE MODEL TO THE YOUTHS IN THE SPHERE OF POLITY. ARE WE SURE THOSE WHO ARE USING THIS UNREGISTERED POLITICAL NAME TO EMBARRASS INNOCENT NIGERIANS ARE THEY NOT DOING THIS TO PREVENT PROPER ACCOUNTABILITY OF NIGERIAN WEALTH BOTH HOME AND ABROAD???? THIS IS A QUESTION THEY SHOULD ANSWER ALL NIGERIANS FROM THE NORTH TO THE SOUTH,FROM THE EAST TO THE WEST!! THEY SHOULD UNDERSTAND THAT NIGERIA AS A COUNTRY INVESTMENT ABROAD SHOULD BE ACRUEING CERTAIN PROFIT FROM TIME TO TIME .. THOSE WHO SET THE BOKO HARAM ARE THE NOT THE CAUCUS WHO WILL NOT ALLOW NIGERIA AS A NATION TO KNOW A BIT OF( RONIA); RETURNS ON NIGERIA INVESTMENT ABROAD!!! THEY SHOULD PLEASE STOP PERMANENTLY THEIR BOKO HARAM ISSUE IN NIGERIA.EVERY NATION IS VYING FOR PROGRESS YOU ARE BUSY SHOUTING BOKO HARAM IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY WHAT A STUPID IDEAS!!! PLEASE PUT A FULL STOP TO IT !!

    I think bamaga is confused, who is talkin about justice here, has he forgotten how he stole Sabiya’s mandate in Gongola? Even after the court ruled that Sabiya won the election ten years later yet he is addressed as former governor of Gongola, where is justice? If he want to talk about justice, ya nuna gurbi mai kyau ya fadawa duniya gaskiya. For him to even say Boko Haram means justice is total deception what has boko or haram as concepts got to do with the concept of justice? Is he trying to invent another dictionary? let him try harder this one cannot work.

    The man is not a fool, he is simply confessing his crimes and extent of his sponsorship. Buhari did so, El-Rufai, Sanusi, Atiku, etc. More confessions to come. God will vindicate us.

    Things are not well in your rural areas, what did you do to develop these areas when you are governor of your state? How many years was the power with the northerners?. Why are these rural areas not developed throughout these years? Take your fights to your leaders and leave us to live in peace. Is bombing of churches justices to you? Almost all Nigeria passed leaders are muslims why did boko haRAM not surface then? YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSE TO BE THE PARTY CHAIRMAN OF THE RULING PARTY. Shame on you.

    This Chairman should be arrested because he is a suspect of sponsoring Boko Haram if he can make such ill-fated statement. This is absolutely barbaric.

The potential for iGaming in Nigeria uncovered

Published

on

There is a growing positivity surrounding the Nigerian iGaming industry. As the nation breathes a collective sigh of relief following the announcement of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), it’s hoped that many burgeoning industries such as the world of iGaming can be allowed to flourish and bring much-needed tax revenues to the country.

Many analysts within the iGaming industry believe Nigeria has the potential to become Africa’s iGaming hub. Its domestic market is already forecast to be worth $2 billion, due largely to sports betting and the fascination with Nigerian soccer stars overseas like Odion Ighalo at Manchester United. Meanwhile, the domestic penetration of smartphones is also recognised, with some 83% of the population now owning a mobile device.

Nigeria was also a major focal point during this year’s SBC Digital Summit Africa, which was understandably conducted virtually earlier this month. Ahead of the summit, experts enrolled in the event were asked to vote on which African country offered the best foundations for iGaming operators to thrive. Nigeria outperformed every other nation, with 31% of all votes labelling Nigeria as the country with the highest potential to make a real
success of its domestic iGaming sector.

Even South Africa, which has a well-established domestic iGaming market, ranked second with just 28% of the vote. Prospective Nigerian iGaming operators should certainly take a leaf out of the book of South African iGaming brands, many of which have cultivated a strong customer base through the use of incentives and sign-up bonuses. The vast majority of offers available at platforms like Casinos.co.za, direct gamers to the safest and most reputable
platforms.

One of the main reasons that industry experts believe in Nigeria’s iGaming potential is that it already boasts an engaged target demographic. Many of its young adults are already betting on sports like soccer and boxing, and there is a feeling that introducing them to casino gaming verticals would not be too difficult a stretch. Marry that with a growing number of smartphone users, which is predicted to reach over 140 million people by 2025, and you can
see the potential for iGaming apps and web applications to provide immersive, secure gaming
on the go.

Presently, the country has three separate bodies responsible for licensing online betting activities – the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC), the Special Control Unit against Money Laundering (SCUML) and the National Office for Technology Acquisition and Promotion (NOTAP). At the time of writing, online betting at a domestic Nigerian site is strictly prohibited by law. Loopholes regarding offshore operators make it possible for
Nigerians to play elsewhere, but it seems somewhat short-sighted for the Nigerian government to steer clear of creating its own regulated, revenue-making iGaming industry.

In a nation of substantial population, supporters of developing a domestic iGaming industry in Nigeria believe that the most would be a positive step, creating new career opportunities for everyday people. This could be in customer support, game development or any other facet of an iGaming operator. All the while, generating tax revenues for the Nigerian government and helping to breathe new life into the domestic economy.

There is a general feeling that Nigeria’s gaming industries tend to follow the same path as South Africa’s. The SBC Digital Summit Africa revealed that there has been a “seismic shift” from sports betting markets to casino games in the last eight months, including live dealer tables, that’s according to Sean Coleman, CEO of the South Africa Bookmakers Association.

Live dealer games seemingly “appeal to millennials” across South Africa. Dean Finder, CEO of Evolution Services SA believes the fact that live dealer games are “not gender biased” is an opportunity to reach out to female players, which are an often “unserved market” across Africa.

For these trends to follow suit in Nigeria, operators will need to build further trust in their
games and regulatory measures to curry favour with the country’s legislature.

Oke

Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
