Remove the bad eggs in govt- African Union tells Buhari



The African Union, A.U, has enjoined President Muhammadu Buhari, to remove the bad eggs in his government to ensure success in the fight against corruption in Nigeria.

The A.U said this through the Nigerian representative at the Economic, Social and Cultural Council, ECOSOCC, Dr Tunji Asaolu.

ECOSOCC expressed worry over the reported  alleged cases of the involvement of top government officials and institutional corruption going on in Nigeria.

Addressing a coalition of the Civil Society Organisations, CSOs, on the anti corruption posture of the Nigerian government in Abuja on Friday, Dr. Asaolu reminded President Buhari of his resolve to end corruption in the country, asking him not to disappoint Nigerians.

Noting that corruption is an enemy of development, ECOSOCC which is a consultative Civil Society and platform for people from African States, enjoined the Nigerian leader, who is the anti corruption champion for Africa to “remove the bad eggs in his government and call his house to order”.

Insisting that President Buhari is respected globally, Dr. Tunji Asaolu who said he had been receiving letters from the CSOs since the week appealed to them to not to take laws into their hands and desist from taking to the streets in protests at the slightest provocations.


Earlier, Splendour Agbonkpolor, of the Initiative for Leadership and Economic Watch in Nigeria, who spoke on behalf of the CSOs, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to address the myriad of issues of graft being leveled against government officials.

Alleging that corruption had eaten deep into the fabrics of Nigeria, Agbonkpolor expressed displeasure over the  revelations from the recent probe of the IMC of the NDDC, saying more disgusting findings may emerge if MDAs are to be investigated.

He wants the government to ensure that public officers allegedly accused of corrupt practices step down for investigation and possible prosecution if found culpable.

Comrade Jacob Okpanachi, Director General,  Accountability and Good governance Initiative decried the deepening curve created by corruption in Nigeria, adding that most of the agencies associated with corruption issues are usually govt owned.

The Civil Liberty Organisations, CSOs, urged the President to overhaul the anti graft agencies, MDAs, the North East Development commission, NEDC, Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund NSTIF, and especially the NDDC, saying that corruption will sink the nation if nothing is done urgently to address it.

Evacuation: 324 more Nigerians depart U.S. for Abuja



Another flight evacuating Nigerians stranded in the United States due to the coronavirus pandemic has departed for Abuja.

The fully booked plane, with 324 passengers on board, left the Newark Liberty International Airport, New Jersey, on Friday night.

It is expected to arrive at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on Saturday afternoon.

This is the third evacuation flight from the U.S. arranged by the federal government in two months, bringing the total number of evacuees to 811.

The travellers were screened for COVID-19 symptoms and subjected to other monitoring requirements, including presentation of their coronavirus test results.

As usual, the departure operation was coordinated by officials of the Nigerian consulate in New York on behalf of the Nigerian missions in the U.S.

The Consul General, Benaoyagha Okoyen, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that three persons were denied boarding for failing to present their COVID-19 test results.

NAN recalls that nine persons, including a family of five, were dropped from the last flight for the same reason.

Mr Okoyen said arrangement had been made to accommodate them in the next flight scheduled for July 28.

COVID-19 test result is one of the requirements for evacuation under the Revised Quarantine Protocol of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.

The U.S., which has been an epicentre of the COVID-19 crisis, is grappling with what experts call a second wave of infections, with a record 75,600 new cases on Thursday alone.

With the consular officials at the airport was Philip Ozuah, a nationally-recognised U.S.-based Nigerian medical doctor and Chief Executive Officer of Montefiore Medical Centre, New York.

Mr Ozuah told NAN he was there in solidarity with the consular officials for “the amazing evacuation operations”.

Some executive members of the Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation Americas (NIDOA) led by their Treasurer, Kazeem Bello, were also on hand to lend their support.

They distributed free safety kits, including masks and hand sanitizers, to the evacuees.
