Why Did Chibok Girls Wear Mufti For SSCE Photos? – Dokubo Asari Raises Fresh Posers

Published

on

Ex-militant and ardent supporter of President Goodluck Jonathan’s second term ambition, Mujahid Dokubo Asari, has insisted that the Chibok school girls’ abduction is a ‘scam’.

Over 200 female students of a government-owned school in Chibok, Borno State were abducted more than two months ago by Boko Haram insurgents with the international community rendering assistance, at the behest of the Nigerian government, to locate and rescue the girls.

In spite of the worldwide attention – powered by a social media campaign with the hash tag ‘#BringBackOurGirls’ – the abduction generated, the repentant militant still believes no girls are missing.

According to a post on his Facebook, in response to the recent publishing of some of the abducted school girls’ photographs and their names, Mr. Asari wondered why they were all dressed in mufti instead of a school uniform.

He argued that since the passport photographs were for the girls’ registration for the Senior School Certificate Examination, SSCE, they ought to have worn their school uniforms.

      With all the cameras, ships, planes, satellites, other equipment have they traced the Malaysian airline 370? To make you happy, assume that all the bombings, attacks on villages, etc are lies. People like you and Asari are sectional and insensitive to other people’s plights.

        Ode, think before you reference. the whereabouts of the malaysian M 370 airline has been discovered. It was sucked into a wormhole. I tink your brain cells might be a little too slow to process the meaning of this. Do your research there was a worm hole close to the Bermuda and that was the last place were signal was last received from the craft.
        Besides there is more to that plane than meets the eye. The Airline was carrying some company officials of some newly developed computer chip.
        Do a google search with this combination and you would find the truth “Malaysian MH370 Airline Rothschilds Chip Revealed” i cant completely remember the name of the company.
        As for the chibok girls there are no girls kidnapped. use your head. dont be a pawn to politicians.

    To some extent Asari was right,I want you all to think deeply before you start raising an abuse on him.Asari was not talking about the cloth they were kignap with,He was refering to the waec passport published here.

      Dickson, please note. When I was in school years ago I snapped my passports at home, in mufti, before resuming school. When I filled docs I attached my passports in mufti. Schools don’t provide photographers to snap passports of school children in uniforms. Now that Im a parent, my children who are in schools snap passport at home, in mufti during holidays. Lets be reasonable and be sensitive to other people’s plight. You have not experienced Boko Haram directily. My brother was killed in Damaturu – Im guardian to one of his sons now. My brothers friend was slaughterd in Damboa near Chibok, he was uried around March 2013. My newphew was gunned down in Maiduguri. My school mate lost a son in FGC Buni Yadi when Boko Haram attacked and burnt that school and so on. Dickson, may God keep you away from Boko Haram otherwise you will never agree with Asari. God save and blessed Nigeria

    Dy wea in hostel wen dy wea adopted?does It means dy ve separate hostels for ss3
    students? It wasn’t lik dis wen I was still in sch. God hlp us. All I knw is dat its either GEJ 2015 or divided nation. Its all abt politics. Its a shame dat some of south east nd south south governors has join APC. Hw do we ve our own Republic wen we can’t stand as one in unity? Biafra must live. Ojukwus fight shall not b in vain

    You know, Asari is making a point there. The pictures, if they were the ones used to register for WAEC exam, should have been taken with their school uniform. WAEC does not accept photograph taken at home. Moreso, this year’s WAEC registration was done by consultants who went to the school to take the students’ pictures and thumb print right there in the schools’ premises.

    Som pple jst tink dey can get somtin out of insults always wen truth is bein told. Asari is right weda u pple like it or not, do u pple write WAEC in mufti in ur state or do u have uniform immunity? Why must u claim u wrote ur own WAEC without uniform or do u think WAEC is an almajiri school. Stop fooling urselves cos u cant fool me.

    Asari Dokubo is making sense and i quite agree with him if not America camera should have spotted d girls even if under d ground and if their SSCE photographs were displayed it should be in uniform

    Even if the girls where sleeping or it was on sunday or the north even claim they have a diffrent waec from what we all know.the girls should even be on their hostel uniforms cos mofti is not allawed in secondary schools.we all passed through it.stop being tribalistic help this nation.

    You can love him or hate him but anyone who is opinionated or can think on his own will see some facts with what asari said. When you register for waec, you do so with the uniform of the school and not mufti. I am begining to think there are some things we are not being told.

    Asari might be an ex-militant, but methinks he is making sense here. His claims should be investigated. Someone should match those photos against those in WAEC database. The Education minister should take note. Come to think of it, how can the forces of America, China, France, Britain and our own Nigerian forces combined be unable to at least locate the ‘missing girls’ with all the sophisticated anti-terrorism gadgets at their disposal, not to mention securing their freedom. Someone should think.

    I am not a politician and do not like them for anything, but truth be told there some hidden truth about this missing girls from chibok, firstly the girls’ whose pictures where circulated then in hijab do not look like sss student not to talk been in sss3, they look more like Jss students, besides you can never use mufti to take waec photographs, its only school uniforms that is allowed. And for those arguing that they were abducted at night, in boarding schools even though mufti are not allowed students still smuggle them in, and you can be sure the school will have house wear they can wear at night atleast if sleep wears were not allowed, but sure sleep wear would be allowed and virtually all the sss3 girls would have because they the most senior in the school, lastly I would where were the house masters or mistresses at the time of this abduction let them come out and tell us how to find our missing baby(girls).God bless Nigeria #shun tribalism.

      I dont think Jona is your father but a fellow Nigeria. Whoever rules is not the issue. The issue is good leadership, without corruption that is focussed for development. Think about Nigeria – No light, good roads, pipe borne water, securty, etc yet billions of US Dollars are stolen. We need someone that can fix Nigeria – whether Jona or any other from any Zone or tribe. Your ideology has never helped Nigeria. How much was missing during IBB, Abacha, Obasanjo and now Jonathan. Think and pray for your country.

    This are not WAEC pictures. Everybody supporting Asari seems not to think before speaking. If you said WAEC doesnt allow pics in mufti, then it is simply not WAEC pics.

    WAEC is a strict body that enforces compliance to Rules and Regulations…their case not an exception. So the Big Mouth and his supporters should know that this are not WAEC pictures.

    No girls are missing, if they were where are their parents?, which parent would relax peacefully knowing that his or her child/children is being held hostage?, which parent in such distress would sit quietly when the first lady summons them to bring solution to their grieve? These are the questions we need to ask ourselves & of course which Nigerian govt. School that allows mufti in WAEC examinations?
    All these things are strategies that the Anti-Goodluck Jonathan parties are using to di-stablize our good President for the forth coming 2015 elections. But the good news is God pass them (all of them)!!

The issue is good leadership, without corruption that is focused for development. Think about Nigeria – No light, no good roads, no pipe borne water, no securty, etc yet billions of US Dollars are stolen/missing and you defend the system that gives you nothing and cannot guaranty the future of your children. How much was stolen/missing during IBB, Abacha, Obasanjo and now Jonathan. We need someone that can fix Nigeria – whether Jona or any other from any Zone or tribe or religion. Selfish ideologies have never helped Nigeria. Think and pray for your country, if you care.

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.
