I won’t submit my NIN data to terrorist Pantami, block my line: Aisha Yesufu

No comments

Social activist Aisha Yesufu has doubled down on her resolve not to link her mobile number to the National Identification Number (NIN), a project championed by Isa Pantami, Nigeria’s communications and digital economy minister.

Mr Pantami has an unassailable link to extremism documented in print, audio, and video in which he demonstrated his avowed sympathy for the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. He also described Boko Haram terrorists as his “Muslim brothers.”

On Friday, Ms Yesufu stated that if it cost her not using a phone, she would not let her private data fall into the hands of terror-linked Mr Pantami.

“Let me repeat categorically what I have said before,” said Ms Yesufu, “I will not be linking my NIN to my phone number!”

Explaining why, she stated, “I will rather not have a phone line than willingly give my information and have it in the control of a terrorist sympathiser and his cohorts.”

Despite public opprobrium directed at Mr Pantami over the damning revelations of his association with terrorists and murderous plots to wipe out unbelievers in Jos, President Muhammadu Buhari has continued to back him.

Mr Buhari had acknowledged that Mr Pantami supported terrorist organisations and incited the Muslim communities against the Christians in the North through the declaration of jihad and fatwa but insisted that the “apology” of the minister was enough to heal the wounds and console the victims of his divisive past. 

Garba Shehu, a presidential spokesman, had said the position of Buhari’s regime on the extremist views of Mr Pantami would have been different if the communications minister was involved in a certificate forgery like ex-minister of finance, Kemi Adeosun.


North already planning to leave Nigeria: Ladoja

.... Says Southerners talk too much

Former Governor of Oyo State, Rashidi Ladoja, has said that the northern part of the country is already taking action to leave Nigeria.

On their part, Ladoja said Southerners are talking too much, demanding Oduduwa Republic and Biafra Republic with fewer actions.

For instance, the former governor noted that a railway is already being considered to link the North to the Niger Republic and a refinery might be built in Daura, Katsina State.

While speaking with journalists after observing the Eid-el-Fitr prayer at the University of Ibadan Central Mosque, on Thursday, Ladoja warned against call for self-determination in the country.

He said, “Let us start with tolerance. At a certain level, people will be talking, but we only know the beginning of a war, not the end. Nobody will remember how the war in Syria started and it is still on for years. And everything they built is being destroyed. So, I think we have to do it softly. We have started democracy. We are not happy with the way it is going.

“But even Quran says there will be a time when God will give you good leaders; there will be a time when the leaders that you are given by God are not as good because He wants you people to see the difference. We should assume that this too will pass. It started six years ago. In another two years, it will go.

“If you are saying because of that you want to go or you don’t want to go, who even tells you that the North is not even getting ready to go? Let us look at it, people in the South are talking too much, and people up North are acting too much.

“In Yorubaland, we talk too much. The North is also preparing to leave and they are working at it. Do you think it is a mistake that they are constructing a railway to the Niger Republic when we have not built a railway from Ibadan to Kano, not even Abuja, and they said it is the first place we are going to spend our money?

“Can’t the refinery in Kaduna be repaired? Why are they saying they would build another refinery in Daura (Katsina State)? And they would be bringing crude oil from the Niger Republic to the place. Don’t let us deceive ourselves, maybe a time will come when all of us will sit down together and separate peacefully.”

No comments

Michael Owen has criticised Sadio Mane for showing a ‘lack of respect’ towards Jurgen Klopp following Liverpool’s victory over Manchester United on Thursday evening.

Two goals from Roberto Firmino, as well as strikes from Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah, helped Liverpool secure a 4-2 win at Old Trafford.

Mane, meanwhile, started the game on the bench and was brought on with 16 minutes remaining.

After the final whistle, Mane appeared to be furious with Klopp as the Senegal international snubbed the offer of a handshake from the Liverpool manager as he made his way back to the dressing room.

Klopp played down the incident in his post-match interview and revealed that he had made a late decision to start Jota ahead of Mane for Liverpool’s visit to Old Trafford.

‘I thought Jurgen Klopp played it well in the interview, played it down, didn’t want to take the shine off what was a great performance and a great win,’ Owen told Premier League Productions.

‘But, and there is a big but, you can’t do that to your manager, not in front of the glaring public.

‘Yes, go knock on his door tomorrow [after the game], yes, if you’re not happy then say something, but you don’t do that.

‘That’s a lack of respect. It sends a bad image to the fans, to his teammates.

‘Don’t forget, he didn’t play, three players did, those three players – Salah, Jota and Firmino – scored all four goals between them, so he’s [Klopp] hardly wrong in what he did.

‘I said before the game I’d play Mane, I think he’s wonderful, I think he’s a brilliant player, I love watching him, I’d have hated to have played against him if I were a defender.

‘But at the end of the day, the team that he did pick, the three strikers scored four goals. You [Mane] just can’t to that. That’s a lack of respect, especially with Jurgen Klopp who shows respect to everybody. I thought it was poor play.

‘I totally understand it, I’ve been left out of a cup final before, but you can’t do that. If you feel that strongly, go back to the training ground, text the manager or knock on his door, anything, so many different ways of reacting bar that one in front of the cameras. There’s so many ways you can deal with it, that’s the last way you deal with it.’

Meanwhile, Paul Scholes has accused Mane of acting ‘like a petulant child’ towards Klopp.

‘As a player you’re going to be really disappointed, of course you are, you haven’t played in such a big game,’ said the former United midfielder.

‘But I think he’s acted like a petulant child, really. A complete lack of respect for his manager.

‘He’s been left out of the team for a game, it happens, it happens to the best players in the world, deal with it. He needs to grow up, he’s acting like a little kid.

‘You’d say if the team had got beat then yeah, possibly he may have a little argument.
