2023 Elections: Soldiers Are Angry, Deadly Explosion Is Coming – Soldier Writes Buhari



Buhari with the Military

Nigerian army Personnel, Sgt Hassan Adewuza has written an open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari exposing what he called continuous corruption and failure of Military Hierarchy in the the institution.

In the letter dated 10th April and obtained by IgbereTV, Adewuza revealed how Senior military officers collected huge bribe from politicians during the 2023 general elections to compromise the polls.

In the letter which was also copied to The Vice President, The Senate President, The Speaker House of Representatives, Minister of Defence, Chief of Defence Staff, Chief of Army Staff, and Chairman Senate Committee Army, Adewuza said the country is sitting on a keg of gun power and may explode any moment if the president fails to take urgent action.

The letter reads in full…

“Honestly want to call on the attention of Mr. President on the above mention subject. It is no longer a top secret but an open secret that the Nigerian military is fantastically corrupt especially, the Nigerian army. This has been proven by the events of the past few years starting from the fight against insurgence/banditry to the just concluded elections.

“Every senior officer in the Nigerian Army today care more of his pockets and careless of the lives and welfare of his subordinates. In the just concluded election, the Nigerian police paid every policeman the sum of N180, 000 whether they took part in the election or not, but in the Army, those that took part in the elections exercise where paid N10,000, N9,000 and N7,500 depending on the command and some command nothing was given to them even pure water. And it was no secret that millions of naira was disbursed to the military for this purpose. Some military commanders even collected huge sum of money to turn blind eyes on intimidations, killings and suppression of voters.

“I am writing to you today Mr. President to look into the plight of junior members of the army especially the order ranks because a day of reckoning is coming. We have suffered for far too Jong. It seems like in our cadre there is no dignity in Labour.

“We work like elephants but eat like ants. lmagine how it feels like after putting in more than 20 years of your life in the service and still be treated like trash. A young oommissioned officer today receives a better treatment than a very senior NCO, It’s very painful and we can’t take it any more.

“Mr. President, loyalty is one of the core values of the army but let me Inform you that loyalty is almost, if not completely dead in the Nigerian Army. We have more of eye service than loyalty. No soldier is willing to die for senseless leaders any more.The country is not worth dying for especially when you think of the ill treatment you receive from your leaders or is

it the ill treatment our dead colleagues families receive.

“Our lives are now seen as wasteful sacristies to fill the pockets of inhuman senior military officers. The army is poorly paid and poorly equipped e.g. In the armored corps, an armored battalion is supposed to be equipped with 36 battle tanks but name one armored battalion in Nigeria today that have 5 serviceable battles tank. How many mechanized battalion today can be proud of one or two serviceable Armored Personnel Carrier (APC).

“Toyota Hilux which is supposed to be a logistics vehicle is now our main operational vehicle in the Nigerian army and yet you call this an Army.

“Mr. President we want an Army that meets internationaI standard, we have what it takes as a nation to do that. We feel ashamed to call ourselves soldiers when we meet In foreign missions with our counterparts from other nations.

“For these reasons anger is building up in the Army. Soldiers are angry and something have to be done quickly or you will see Ghana’s June 4” 1979 happeningin Nigeria.

“This in-house cleaning will shake the nation and Africa. Soldiers leaving the job in high numbers and most reasons is loss of interest that shoold have send a signal but no. Do not Say I didn’t warn you, Soldiers are angry, do what is necessary, Do not forget this country is now sitting on a keg of gun powder and any little spark can cause a deadly explosion.”

NIS Will Focus More On Passport Insurance, Staff Welfare – New Ag. CG



The newly appointed Acting Comptroller General, Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Caroline Adepoju, has promised to promote staff welfare and passport insurance.

Adepoju, therefore, directed all passport offices nationwide to take necessary steps to ensure no Nigerian is subjected to unnecessary delays or substandard treatment in the course of applying for passports.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Service Public Relations Officer (SPRO), Comptroller of Immigration, Mr. Tony Akuneme, in Abuja, yesterday.

The Acting CG read the riot act, when she addressed top management of the NIS minutes after taking over from Alhaji Isah Jere, her immediate predecessor.

Adepoju affirmed that she would focus majorly on passport issues and staff welfare as those two aspects contribute mostly to the complaints of Nigerians and NIS personnel.

She announced that a stakeholders meeting would be convened in the next few days to x-ray the real issues in passport process and proffer far-reaching solutions.

This, she said, would include opening more front offices in the Lagos area, where the bulk of complaints emanate from.

Adepoju equally said she would adopt a bottom-top approach in tackling officers’ welfare.

“We will start by meeting all cadres of staff to hear their genuine needs, in a bid to hit the ground running with a blue print that will be based on an all inclusive needs assessment,” she said.

She appreciated the immediate past Comptroller General for making positive impact on the service during his tenure and asked God to guide him in his future endeavours.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Adepoju had served in various locations during her career in the NIS.

Until her appointment, she was the Deputy Comptroller General in charge of Finance.

Tinubu Reinstates Sanity As DSS, EFCC Squabble Over Property In Lagos




A protracted conflict between Department of State Services (DSS) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over a building at No. 15 Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, appeared to have taken a dirty twist, yesterday.

The incident, however, earned a place in the archive of the new administration as one of the first interventions by President Bola Tinubu, who was sworn in barely 24 hours earlier.

Operatives of the DSS had barricaded entrance to the EFCC’s office, located at the said building, leading the anti-graft agency to issue a protest statement.

Meanwhile, the DSS issued a counter statement, denying it barricaded the premises, and claiming it was “only occupying its own” facility.

According to a statement released by presidential spokesman, Tunde Rahman, Tinubu “directed DSS to immediately vacate the office of the EFCC in Ikoyi, Lagos,” adding, “if there were issues between the two important agencies of government, they would be resolved amicably.”

EFCC’s spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, described the incident as bizarre, given that both agencies had shared the controversial facility for decades.

The statement reads: “Operatives of the Lagos Command of the EFCC arrived at their office on No. 15 Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, this morning, May 30, 2023, to be denied entry by agents of the DSS, who had barricaded the entrance with armoured personnel carriers.

“This development is strange to the Commission, given that we have cohabited with the DSS in that facility for 20 years without incident.

“By denying operatives access to their offices, the Commission’s operations at its largest hub, with over 500 personnel, hundreds of exhibits, and many suspects in detention have been disrupted.

Cases scheduled for court hearing today have been aborted, while many suspects who had been invited for questioning are left unattended.

“Even more alarming is that suspects in detention are left without care, with grave implications for their rights as inmates. All of these have wider implications for the nation’s fight against economic and financial crimes.

“The siege is inconsistent with the synergy expected of agencies working for the same government and nation, especially when there are ongoing discussions on the matter.”

DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, however, said: “It is not correct that the DSS barricaded EFCC from entering its office. No. It is not true. The Service is only occupying its own facility where it is carrying out its official and statutory responsibility.

“By the way, there is no controversy over No 15 Awolowo Road, as being insinuated by the media. Did the EFCC tell you it is contesting ownership of the building? I will be surprised if it is contesting the ownership.

“Awolowo Road was NSO headquarters. SSS/DSS started from there. It is a common knowledge. It is a historical fact. Check it out.

“There is no rivalry between the Service and the EFCC over and about anything. Please, do not create any imaginary one. They are great partners working for the good of the nation. Dismiss any falsehood of a fight.”
