[ Masterweb Reports: Olalekan Waheed Adigun reports ] - The 2016 US presidential campaign is turning out to be dramatic. Many analysts have predicted a something close to an easy victory for Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton to have an easy ride in the primaries. I also recall severally downplaying the chances of Republican top-notch, Donald Trump, in some of my write-ups. I was proven all wrong as the results of recent primaries turned in.
 
I kept a vigil with CNN as the results turned in on Tuesday night hoping fighter Hillary will turn Bernie Sanders’ lead in New Hampshire around only to wake up that morning to know I was living in the world of my dreams-people are “feeling the Bern”. Not until I watched my beautiful-looking Hillary concedes defeat to Bernie, I didn’t believe it even though the major headline was “New Hampshire primary results: Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders win”!

 
The US state of New Hampshire held its traditional primary just eight days after the Iowa caucuses. Polling in the Granite State has historically been volatile in the final weeks before the primary. Once Iowa holds its caucuses, many New Hampshire voters are known to traditionally cement their opinions especially in the age of the new media.
 
The state has a reputation for predicting correctly the winner of the eventual nomination. Historically a look at votes cast in New Hampshire shows a candidate received and won the eventual nomination.
 
On the Democratic side, since 1992, Barrack Obama (2012), John Kerry (2004), Al Gore (2000) and Bill Clinton (1996) all won at New Hampshire and eventually won the party nomination.
 
On the Republican side, Governor Mitt Romney (2012), Senator John McCain (2008), Governor George W. Bush (2000 and 2004) and Senator Bob Dole (1996) all won the GOP primaries in the state and became eventual winners in the final analyses.
 
Let us have a look at how the presidential candidates fared in New Hampshire. In the Republican race, Donald Trump has a clear lead with 34% over Marco Rubio’s 11%. On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders had a clear lead with 60% over Hillary Clinton’s 38%.
 
Let us forget a little about the Republicans and restrict our analyses to the Democrats. I say this because the GOP nomination is still open to more possibilities than their progressive counterparts. If it is not Jeb Bush, it will be Marco Rubio. If it is not Ted Cruz, it should be Donald Trump. But surely the ticket cannot go to Christine Fiorina!
 
For the Democrats, the ticket belongs to whoever is “feeling the Bern” or “fighting for US”. Hillary for America strategists need not be told now that they have grossly underestimated Bernie. They also need not be reminded of the importance of NH primary. They do not need the advice that the time come for a reality check. They cannot continue to rely on Hillary or Clinton to just bring in the votes. Bernie may not be so popular with those outside America, but the results are going on just fine for him. In fact, Bernie’s strategists, the truth be told, are doing a fantastic job.
 
In a parenthesis, the loss in this year’s state’s primary is strange because New England state has long been kind to the Clintons. It is the same state that made, Hillary’s husband, Bill the "comeback kid" in 1992. And Hillary beat Barack Obama there in 2008, salvaging her campaign after a third-place showing in Iowa.
 
Also, the fact that Hillary has about 9% support among younger women, aged 18-34, should concern her handlers because records available show that Bernie cruises home with over 90% support among this strategic population. Whoever invited Madeleine Albright, first woman US secretary of state, to speak at Hillary’s NH campaign rally obviously did not do a good job. Let us hear what she had to say on younger women who are not supporting Hillary: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!” Haba Madam! Na by force?
 
Well, I have just been reliably informed that "special place in hell" is Albright’s favourite line which she has used for many years therefore it is not unique to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Again, even at that, she being a longstanding diplomat, Albright should have been more tactful speaking for a political campaign!
 
As a Hillary fan myself, I think it will be good if her handlers can look at the New Hampshire debacle from fresh perspectives. President Obama lost in the state after a good start in Iowa in 2008, yet he still won the election. In this case, I suggest her handlers do as they were doing when they started. They need to avoid attacking Sanders directly. The attacks on his campaign from Hillary for America are becoming too direct in recent times.
 
It appears there is mental fatigue on the part of Hillary’s handlers since the Benghazi Inquiry. In my opinion, the handling of that incidence is the most professional thing her campaign has done. Ever since, it has been forthcoming in providing the gap for Sanders to exploit. This only shows mental fatigue on the part of Hillary for America.
 
While we agree that is not just rocket science, we keep our fingers crossed as the results on these keenly contested primaries come in without engaging in unnecessary prognosis. One thing is sure- US politics will not remain the same after the 2016 election. The results so far show how fast the political establishments are crumbling in both parties if things continue this way. This is where Hillary’s campaign staff must analyse the issues from!

[ Masterweb Reports: Ihechukwu Njoku reports ] - Prophet T.B. Joshua continues to fly the flag for Nigeria abroad, having been selected to choose three young leaders who will represent the nation at an internationally renowned conference across Asia and Europe.
 
 
According to a post on Joshua's official Facebook Page, Humanitarian Affairs, "an international NGO that aims to empower young people who are passionate about social change to make a real impact in the world", selected the pastor for his dedication in developing 'leaders of tomorrow'.  
 
 
Joshua has been designated to "select three Youth Leaders between 18-35 years old to represent Nigeria in the 7th University Scholars Leadership Symposium (USLS)," to be held in August 2016 in Hanoi, Vietnam, who "will share the secrets behind his extensive humanitarian efforts around the world".
 
 
T.B. Joshua is well known for his charitable work over the decades, especially the provision of scholarships to students such as Mary Jean Nleya who was sponsored to Harvard University, Yinka Oduwole to the University of Oxford and thousands more to academic institutions worldwide.
 

 
Humanitarian Affairs, a member of the United Nations Global Compact, will bring together over 1,000 leaders and world leading experts from more than 60 countries at the USLS.  
 
 

 
"Ultimately, the organisation envisions building an international network of inspired, empowered and proactive young leaders who will be influential change-makers and decision-makers of the future," their website states.
 
 
One of the keynote speakers at the event, Mr Haoliang Xu, Assistant Secretary General, United Nations, said, "I think Humanitarian Affairs has created such a wonderful platform for you to gather together to discuss leadership, to discuss your own actions and to deal with humanitarian and development challenges that the world faces."
 
 
Joshua has spearheaded numerous global humanitarian projects including relief in disaster-hit countries such as Haiti and Philippines, alongside support for the physically challenged, widows, little people, orphans and elderly.
 
 
Additionally, he founded a football club for the less-privileged called My People FC, which discovered the likes of SS Lazio and Nigerian midfielder Ogenyi Onazi and FIFA U-17 World Cup MVP Sani Emmanuel.
 
 
He was also ranked among the most famous prophets in history by American website ranker.com, given the highest ranking by Google for institutions within Nigeria and awarded the 'Yoruba Man Of The Decade'.
 
 
Joshua's television station Emmanuel TV recently surpassed 300,000 subscribers on YouTube, making it one of the most subscribed Christian channels worldwide.

[ Masterweb Reports: C. K. Ekeke reports ] - I begin this year’s Lenten season with a sense of unbelief.  It is not unbelief in the Lord Jesus Christ who enters the city of Jerusalem after his desert 40-day fasting and prayer to face suffering, excruciating pain and ultimately death at the hands of Roman Generals and ignorant Jewish political/religious leaders.
 
No, I begin this season of Lent like the father of a demon-possessed boy in the  gospel of Mark, who cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief” – Mark 9:24. 
I begin this season of Lent with utter disbelief about what is happening in my country Nigeria under the watch of President Buhari/APC government. 
 
I am in utter disbelief about the state of democracy in Nigeria today.  It seems that President Buhari – a former military dictator and self-acclaimed democrat does not understand constitutional democracy, rule of law, human rights, freedom of speech, freedom of association, etc. 
 
I’m in utter disbelief of the abuse of human rights, disregard for rule of law, crack down on freedom of speech, freedom of association, etc. The Nigerian State is turning into a military dictatorship where all freedoms are denied and punished wherever found.
 
I am in utter disbelief of the killings of unarmed and vulnerable pro-Biafra prayer warriors who were invaded by Nigerian Police and Army and shot at indiscriminately massacring ten of them while several others sustained gunshot-induced injuries all over their bodies and vital organs at their usually monthly prayer meetings at National High School Aba in Abia State.  They were massacred while praying. 
 
I’m in utter disbelief of the rampant shooting of defenseless young pro-Biafra protesters who are peacefully protesting against the unlawful detention of their leader: Mr. Nnamdi Kanu, who was arrested last October by the Department of State Security (DSS) for speaking out against SE marginalization.
 
I’m in utter disbelief of a young school girl who was gunned down in Aba while walking to school by a Nigerian soldier who was angry for loosing one of his personal items.
 
I’m in utter disbelief of the indiscriminate killings of Shia Muslims in Zaria by the army – accusing the group of assassination attempt against the Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai. 
 
I’m in utter disbelief of the continued detention of their leader, Sheikh Zakzaky and the brazen destruction of Shia Muslim headquarters in Zaria by soldiers directed by Lawal Musa Daura, the Director-General of the Department of the State Service [DSS] according to the report.
 
I’m in utter disbelief of the selective fight against corrupt political officials – the selective arrest and harassment of only PDP members and none from APC including the cronies around the president – even though most, if not all members of APC today were once members of PDP.  Some APC member were in PDP until President Buhari won the presidential election last May and they started switching party. 
 
I’m utterly in disbelief of the brazen cruelty of the military force against vulnerable youngsters, who are suffering due to yoke of ethnic hatred, religious bigotry, punitive policies and corrupt political leadership.
 
I’m in utter disbelief of the indifference that world leaders are showing to hurting and marginalized Biafra group, who are simply protesting against joblessness, lack of infrastructure, and marginalization of the region. 
 
Now, we see the hypocrisy of world leaders - especially America, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China.  They are only interested in oil resources, contracts, and do not care about human lives - especially Black lives. 
 
I’m in utter disbelief of the deafening silence of Nigerian media, civil societies, human rights organizations, the elders, the statesmen, the politicians, and off-course the religious leaders, who have not courageously spoken out against the rampant shootings and killings of innocent youths by the Army and Police.  This is travesty and rape of democracy.
 
I’m in utter disbelief that all the institutions – courts, judiciary, and legislative body that suppose to protect, uphold, and balance power in democratic presidential system of government are all tamed by this president. 
 
I’m in utter disbelief that Igbos are killed and forced to remain part of Nigeria even when basis of unity does not exist anymore.  I’m in utter unbelief of such a forced adulterous marriage even when the Holy Books proscribed separation and divorce on certain conditions. Nigeria’s amalgamation expired in 2014 and the nation is fundamentally flawed and until real restructure occurs, Nigeria’s unity does not exist.
 
I’m in utter disbelief that while murderous sect like Boko haram has continued to massacre innocent Nigerians in the northeast and IDP centers across Nigeria despite the claim of the government that Boko haram is technically defeated, while the Nigerian Military and Police are busy shooting and killing innocent and unarmed Biafra youths in SE region of Nigeria.
 
I’m in utter disbelief of the resurgent kidnapping and killings of Royal Fathers, Kings, and Obas for ransom by the Fulani herdsmen in SW.
 
I’m in utter disbelief that President Buhari spoke recently at EU parliament asking for rights and self determination of the Palestine people but will kill the indigenous people of Biafra in SE of Nigeria for peacefully asking for the same rights.  What a hypocrisy.
 
Ten months ago, Nigerians voted out PDP out of power because of massive corruption and chose APC party leadership to pilot the affairs of the nation.  Nigerians wanted change – but the change we are seeing now is not what we voted for. Some democratic gains have been made since 1999 when Nigeria returned to constitutional democratic presidential system of government, but today, Nigeria’s fragile and fledging democracy at risk.
 
In a democracy, people have of freedom of speech to complain and protest against joblessness, poverty, oppression, injustice, and marginalization.  There’s nothing wrong with that in a constitutional democracy.  Nigeria is not practicing military system of government anymore and do not have plans to go back to the brutal time of military dictatorship.  Nigeria’s fragile and fledging democracy at risk if President Buhari is not going to respect the laws of the Land.  If he cannot obey the courts, than Nigeria’s democracy is risk.  If the EFCC, INEC, DSS, Military personnel and other institutions of the Federal government cannot use the rule of engagement democratically and wisely, then Nigeria’s unity is stake.  People will have no options than to defend themselves. 
 
President Buhari/APC, DSS, EFCC, INEC and the Army – please be warned.  Do not destroy Nigeria! Nigeria is a presidential democracy not military dictatorship. 
 
I’m in utter disbelief of some many things, but I remain optimistic and hopeful that President Buhari/APC government will turn-around. 
 
Let me conclude by saying my Lenten prayer:  Lord, I believe; help my unbelief even when I just cannot believe the cruelties of men in power.

[ Masterweb Reports: Evangelist Chi Benedicta Okonkwo on Love ] - Of this there are five kinds, which vary according to the object upon which love is exercised. The attribute in God is the same; but it is in its exit, or in its termination, that it assumes these different forms.
 

  1. There is the love of complacency or approbation. This is exercised towards a worthy object in which excellencies are perceived. This is exercised by God, in its highest degree, in the love of himself, of his own nature and character, because the infinitely excellent must be to God the highest object of complacent love.

The complacent love of God, therefore, extends not only to himself and his will, but to all his innocent creation and even to inanimate nature.
 
This love of complacency, however, as it is exercised in its highest degree towards himself, so also is it exhibited, in the nearest approach to that, towards those beings who are most like himself, having been made in his nature and likeness. An innocent angel, or an innocent man is therefore by nature a joy to God, as is the child to the father who sees in it a peculiar likeness to himself.
 
But the guilty cannot thus be loved. Sinful man cannot receive such love, so long as sinful. Even the penitent believer in Jesus, until the time of his perfect sanctification in the life to come, and doubtless even then, has access to God only through Christ, and, of himself, can in no respect secure the approbation of God.
 
2.The second kind of love, is the love of benevolence, which corresponds to the idea of God’s goodness towards his creatures. This is the product of his wishes for their happiness. It is not dependent on their character, as is the love of complacency, but is exercised towards both innocent and guilty. It is general in its nature, not special, and exists towards all, even towards devils, and wicked men, because God’s nature is benevolent, and, therefore, he must wish for the happiness of his creatures.
 
That that happiness is not attained, nor attainable, is due, not to him, but to their own sin.
 
When the benevolence of God is exercised actively in the bestowment of good things upon his creatures, it is called his beneficence. By the former, he wishes them happiness, by the latter, he confers blessings to make them so.
 
This is done to the wicked also, as well as to the righteous. It is to this that Christ refers, Matthew 5:45, “ He maketh his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sendeth rain on the just and the unjust.”
 
3.The third form of love is the love of compassion.
 
This corresponds to our idea of pity. It is benevolent disposition to those who are suffering or in distress.
 
This also may be exercised towards the guilty or the innocent, if it be possible to suppose that guilt and suffering are separable. It has been very commonly held that they are

 
inseparable. Pain , suffering and distress have been believed to be the result of sin, and consequently, inseparable from guilt. But this is a mistaken notion. Man in a state of innocence was made capable of physical suffering. That capacity was necessary to the protection of his physical organism.
 
It can be and is also exercised toward the guilty. We see this in the forbearance with which he delays their punishment, in his constant offers of mercy, in his yearnings after their salvation, and most signally, in the gift of his only begotten Son, “ that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16.
 
4. A fourth form of the love of God corresponds to what we call mercy.
 
This can be exercised only toward sinners.
 
Its very nature contemplates guilt in its objects.
 
It consists, not only in the desire not to inflict the punishment due to sin, and the neglect and refusal to do so, but in the actual pardon of the offender. It cannot be exercised towards a righteous being, because, in him is no sin or guilt to be pardoned.
 
Under the ancient economy, God ruled as theocratic ruler over Israel. Sins of the nation and sins of individuals in their capacity of citizens of the nation, were pardoned.
 
Under that dispensation God occupied to that people the position of an earthly ruler, and consequently could pardon sins against his government at will, upon repentance, and upon merely governmental principle-that is, such as would secure obedience to the law, peace and order, and the welfare of the nation. These were offences against the mere person of the king or the laws of his state, and not against the fundamental principles of holiness and righteousness; hence sovereignty and expediency could decide in each case what might be done, and mercy was exercised and justice dispensed accordingly.
 
But this is very different from the case of God, the righteous judge, the dispenser, not of arbitrary law, but of a law based upon his own nature and that of man, essential obedience to which is necessary, not for maintaining government, but for preserving and maintaining the right and preventing the violation with impunity of eternal law.
 
In both cases God must act in harmony with his whole nature.
 
5. The fifth form of love is that of affection.
 
This differs from that of complacency inasmuch as it does not always demand a worthy object. This is exhibited in the parable of the “ Prodigal Son.”

 
It differs from that of benevolence, inasmuch as its object is not viewed in general with all others, but is one of special interest.
 
It differs from that of compassion and that of mercy, because the object may neither be in distress, nor sinful.
 
It arises from,
 

  1. Mutual relationship; as of the Father to the Son, and of all the persons in the Trinity toward each other; of Christ to his apostles, his disciples and his church, and of the adopted sons to God the Father.
  2. From dependence; as of creatures on the creator, and of the redeemed upon the redeemer.
  3. From ownership; as of God over man of God over Israel, and of Christ over the redeemed. This is illustrated in the lost coin in Luke 15:8,9.

This kind of love originates in each of these ways in man, and, as the Scriptures show, is also found in God.
 
It is from this aspect of God’s love that proceeds grace, which is to be distinguished from love, pity, and mercy.
 
Love, as we have seen, is the general characteristic, exhibiting itself in these five different forms.
 
Mercy is one of these, but is given to the guilt only.
 
Pity is given to guilty or innocent, who may be in distress, pain or suffering.
 
Grace is also given to guilty, or innocent, and does not necessarily suppose distress in the object, but involves an affectionate interest in it, arising either from peculiar relation to it, or ownership of it, or compassion for its dependence.
 
Grace is undeserved favour to innocent or guilty arising from affection.
 
Mercy is undeserved compassion to the guilty only.

[ Masterweb Reports: Chukwuma Bright reports ] - Gone are the days when Africa cry of underdevelopment by the West was foremost on the list of issues the continent faced. Dehumanization of black Africans in India and other Asian countries is of great concern to all lovers of justice, liberty and freedom. Africans are continuously abused and killed in these countries without much response from African Union (AU) and the countries their citizens were so dehumanized or killed.
 
An irony of both the elite and political class who pay lip service to how the Asia-African relationship has been in China and India and in some cases at the fore-front of the dehumanization.
 
Every now and then, one of the Asian countries would host African heads of state for one summit, conference, Exhibition or the other without these presidents complaining about the ill treatment of their citizens in these countries.  African Union is one of the most visionless, unproductive, useless, senseless organization in the world - they have never said a word about the treatment of their citizens in other parts of the world.

[ Masterweb Reports: Press Release For Immediate Release ] - As part of the activities lined up for 40th anniversary of the demise in office of General Murtala Ramat Muhammed, the Emir of Kano and former Governor of Central Bank; Sanusi Lamido Sanusi will be leading the Jumat prayers at the MASSALLACIN MURTALA in Kano State on the Friday, February 12, 2016.



 
This is considered a rare occasion given that the Emir of Kano traditionally leads prayers in Kano Central Mosque as the leader of Kano Emirate. This gesture is seen as an act in honour of the memory of the former Head of State and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

 
It will be recalled that the Emir Sanusi spent part of his growing days under the watchful eyes of Murtala who was his guardian during his Kings College days in Lagos. It is from him he imbibed the core value that has helped shape his life.  

 
Aisha Oyebode, the Chief Executive Officer of the Murtala Muhammed Foundation (MMF) who announced the programme of event on behalf of the family stated that her father loved his country so much and was very passionate about the Nigerian project. In her words: “My father, General Murtala Muhammed believed in the corporate existence of Nigeria and called on all Nigerians to be dedicated and make sacrifice in achieving greatness for our beloved country”.

 
General Muhammed’s ideals are as relevant to our current challenges and aspirations as they were during his time. Our country Nigeria is contending with tensions arising from the activities of micro-nationalistic agitators, threatening to compound existing security challenges occasioned by the Boko Haram insurgency that has caused fatalities in excess of 15,000 people and displaced over 2 million people.

The late former Head of State of the Federal Republic of Nigeria was a foremost Pan-Africanist who placed Africa at the centre of Nigeria’s foreign policy and mobilized support for the liberation of other African countries from apartheid, colonialism and neo-Colonialism. In Nigeria, his administration fought corruption and indiscipline, while pursuing peace and security within our borders – he was a firm believer in a peaceful and united Nigeria within an integrated and prosperous Africa.

 
On the home front, his administration fought corruption and indiscipline, while pursuing peace and security within our borders – he was a firm believer in a peaceful and united Nigeria within an integrated and prosperous Africa.

 
ABOUT MMF
The Murtala Muhammed Foundation (MMF) is a non-governmental organization (NGO) with a vision to improve the living conditions of Africans by contributing to reduction of poverty and limitation of conflict, while promoting self-reliance and self-fulfillment. H.E. Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, GCFR, former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees.

[ Masterweb Reports: Parth M.N. reports ] - A mob attack against a Tanzanian woman in India's high-tech capital has renewed questions about racism in the country, particularly against African immigrants. The Tanzanian student was apparently pulled from her car, stripped and sexually assaulted in the city of Bangalore on Sunday night, authorities said. Police on Thursday arrested five people in connection with the incident, the Karnataka state Chief Minister K. Siddarmaiah told reporters.
 
 
The 21-year old university student in business management told police that a mob pulled her out of a car and set it ablaze. Later, she told police, she was beaten, molested, stripped and paraded naked.
 
Authorities said the reported attack stemmed from a collision a short time earlier in the same area in which a Sudanese driver, allegedly drunk, struck and killed an Indian woman with his car. Angry residents had set his car afire and beat him before he fled.
 
The incident involving the Tanzanian student occurred after her car traveled along the same street while the mob was out.
 
Officials have sought to dispel allegations that what happened with the Tanzanian woman was racially motivated. Karnataka state Home Minister G. Parmeshwara, at a news conference, said it was “just a response” to the earlier accident.
 
The woman has told authorities that a police constable witnessed the attack against her but did not intervene.
 
Bosco Kaweesi, legal advisor to an African student association, told reporters in Bangalore, “She tried to enter a bus, the passengers pushed her outside. She tried to get an auto-rickshaw, they refused to take her. And she was running up and down when she actually had no clothes on."
 
“Right now we are scared of every Indian around us,” the Tanzanian student told the India Today news channel.
 
There have been previous cases of attacks and anger directed by Indians against African immigrants in the country, many of whom are university students.
 
In October 2014, in the capital New Delhi, three young African men were beaten at a metro station by a mob that chanted "Victory for Mother India," according to news reports of the incident that were posted on YouTube.
 
The three men -- identified in news reports as from the West African nations of Gabon and Burkina Faso -- climbed atop a police post as the mob pursued them with sticks. They were eventually rescued when a police officer reached the scene.
 
Comments posted online accused the men of "misbehaving" with women on the train and included racist descriptions of them.
 
Earlier that year, a minister in the Delhi government, Somnath Bharti, called for a late-night raid against a group of Nigerian women who were driven out of their homes and accused of being prostitutes and drug dealers. Some allegedly were forced to urinate in public for drug testing.
 
In 2013, in the coastal tourist haven of Goa, residents put up sign boards that accused Nigerian migrants of being drug dealers.
 
"Say No to Nigerians, Say No to Drugs," the signs said. A minister in the state government called Nigerians "a cancer" and was forced to apologize.
 
The incidents betray not just a latent hostility toward blacks, who are relatively rare in India, but also the expectation among Indians that the majority is like-minded and prejudicial attacks will not be punished, said sociologist Satish Deshpande.
 
“It is not limited to race or color,” Deshpande said in an interview. “The mob is confident that society will back you after an attack on homosexuals, minorities or blacks. And it extends to the police as well. Police tend to go with the popular sentiment."

[ Masterweb Reports: Press Release For Immediate Release ] - We want to clarify that some of the media reports alleging that the EFCC is investigating former Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, are misleading and untrue. This is clear from eye witness accounts of the Budget 2016 presentation by the EFCC at the House of Representatives and gaps in the reported stories.
 
 
The headlines are a misrepresentation of what the EFCC Chairman actually said during the event.
 
 
While the headlines claimed that the EFCC Chairman, in response to a question by an APC, member Hon Razak Atunwa, stated that Dr Okonjo-Iweala is under investigation, the actual words quoted in the same reports told a very different story.
 
 
His words:
 
“Very soon we will go into the petroleum industry. Such investigation requires that we have to build capacity, we have to bring in experts to enable us tackle what we are doing properly and the investigation must be conducted properly. We have internal lawyers and external lawyers. We have to pay insurance…”
 
 
The words said to have been spoken by the EFCC Chairman cannot support the lurid headlines that Dr Okonjo-Iweala is under investigation by the EFCC.
 
 
The Nigerian media plays an important role in our democracy and we urge them to be fair, balanced and factual in their reports.

Media Adviser to Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala
