Jonathan Fires Sports Minister Suleiman

President Jonathan today fired the Minister of Sports, Alhaji Yusu Suleiman, just a day after he declared his intention to contest the Governorship race in Sokoto state under PDP.

The presidency said his removal was to 'afford him the opportunity to focus fully on the pursuit of his declared political ambition..'

A lazy mind jumps to conclusion. The man resigned, not sacked. Stop getting your news through telegram, telex, fax or from newspaper. Use the Internet (modern technology). Thank you.

More Christians Killed By Islamists said...

Muslim Extremists, Boko Haram, Destroy Lives, Church Buildings in Geidam, Yobe State, Nigeria.

One woman, three girls killed as northeastern states of Yobe, Bauchi heat up. In Nigeria’s increasingly dangerous northeast, Muslim extremists in this town in Yobe state helped members of the Islamic terrorist sect Boko Haram destroy five church buildings last Saturday (Nov. 26), while previously in neighboring Bauchi state Islamic radicals killed four Christians, including three girls. Boko Haram members’ weekend rampage in the Yobe state town of Geidam destroyed all Christian-owned businesses, as area Muslims pointed them out for the sect raiders, according to local Christians. Five of the eight church buildings in town were ruined, and the violence displaced about 700 Christians, sources said. When Compass visited the town on Tuesday (Nov. 29), only two of the eight pastors in the town remained. The other six pastors and their families had fled. The Rev. Amos Ajeje, 48, vice chairman of the Geidam chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, told Compass that local Muslims assisted Boko Haram members in carrying out the attacks on Christians. He said the attack by Boko Haram, which seeks to impose a stricter version of sharia (Islamic law) than that already in place in northern Nigeria and expand it to the rest of the country, had driven all other Christians from town. “There are no more Christians in this town,” Ajeje said. “All shops belonging to Christians have been looted and then destroyed by these Muslims.

Hey you ! Pay attention. I got big news for you!

Here's the real reason Mrs. Farida Waziri was fired. GEJ tossed her out because it was uncovered by foreign governments that she's been taking massive bribes from those she was supposed to investigate and jail. The president, Goodluck Jonathan got hold of the facts and kicked Mrs. Farida Waziri out of her job, unceremoniously. Remember she claimed she heard about her sacking on tv? Well, she knew why she was sacked. She was sacked because she's rotten, corrupt and had millions of dollars stashed offshore in her name. This is big scandal oooh.  Read the real story below. The rest of the info is on the link below:

Breaking News:  Corrupt EFCC May Re-open Corruption Cases Against 32 Ex-Govs, As US, UK Anti-Graft Experts Are In Nigeria.


Nigeria appears set to revitalise its anti-corruption war following the arrival in the country of top anti-graft Czars during the week, Saturday Tribune can authoritatively reveal. 

Major Western nations, which cut strategic cooperation with Nigeria when the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) was under its erstwhile Chairman, Mrs. Farida Waziri, had sent in their top operatives to explore a renewed cooperation in the area of money laundering and anti-corruption. 

It was gathered that former governors, whose cases had become moribund under the Farida-led EFCC, had become jittery as a result of the discovery that  some Western nations had sent their top operatives to re-open some of the cases.
Sources said that some meetings had been held between Nigerian officials and those foreign anti-graft Czars, who started arriving the country immediately after Waziri’s sack.

He didn't fire the guy. He accepted the guy's resignation.

Lin Lin, I don't think he was fired o. I think the Sports Minister's departure was one of mutual understanding between both parties (but I am not 100% sha). All the sackings, moves etc do not even move me. The whole system consists of recycled crap..I mean persons :-D. They just go from one post to the other. I do not know much about this guy but I am not sure how he qualifies to be a State Governor. That is why some States are in the toilet. The people at the helm of affairs are inexperienced and lack vision, save for a vision to enlarge their pockets :-p. Lord keep us till 2015 or until you want to have mercy on us and touch the hearts of Nigerians to Libya(yels I used it as a verb) some of these leaders.

me? Why I go Send? said...

Linda, this is not fair. Your blog ought to be a responsible one. Am sure that is your aim. You should also realise that what you say can influence as it appears that you are well followed and respected.
So why you dey mislead people na? No wia a serving minister go still hold him potfolio wen him wan seek elective office. They're usually required to resign their office. The way you put am con make GEJ look bad whereas na the mallam resign by himself. GEJ enemies send you? E b like say IBB and Atiku don hire you to run down GEJ. Linda, watch what you ah do o!

Waziri, sacked! Sports minister, sacked! Heheheehe. I'm anxiously waiting for GEJ to sack at least 3 most problematic governors, after all, he is their boss. *grinning*

Nigeria politics is a JOKE, which makes those leaders bunch of idiots except few that are trying to do smth.

Jonathan is brainless. It's time to stand up against the nigerian government. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

james@ how to make money on internet said...

if he must have don that he must have a reson for doing that.

James@ how to make money on internet said...

But why him...

Nkenna said...

Its just sad the ignorance of some people,and Linda its as if you r adding to it.

If you are well versed in these matters you will know that it is standard practice in Nigeria that if you are a member of the cabinet and you want to contest elections you will be "let go" as you put it .
it happened in obasanjos time for e.g liyel imoke had to be relieved of his post as Minister of Mines?education so he can face his campaign to govern his state.
I wonder why you always or instigate bashing GEJ even when not necessary, chill it looks as if your trying so hard to disassociate yourself from the envelope scandal during the campaigns !

its your perogative to post this or not, but the main imporatnt person has read it and that is you!
