Terror Alert: Group Knocks U.S , U.K, Others For Going Public



Citizens Stability Forum Addressing the Press


A Civil Society Organization under the aegis of Citizens Stability Forum (CSF) has berated the United States of America (USA), United Kingdom (UK) and the Canadian over their recent  public terror alerts that the trio raised that went viral.

The group questioned the motive behind the three countries going public instead of notifying the Nigerian government, establishing that Nigeria as a country have been enjoying long diplomatic relationship with them.

In a press conference to journalists in Kano state, the group frowned that it is expected that when a foreign mission like the US is faced with such intelligence to channel such warnings and intelligence through diplomatic channels where adequate plans and provisions will be made to not only avert the situations but to also apprehend the planners and sponsors of such act.

The group lamented that such warnings from from the trio of the US,UK and Canadian embassies had endeared Denmark and Australia to follow suit, the warnings it said had plunged the entire Nigerian capital into perpetual fairs where businesses and schools have started closing down because of the fairs of terror attacks.

“The recent happenings surrounding the terror alert raised by the United States, the United Kingdom and Canadian embassies in Nigeria have left a bad taste on the side of Nigerians, putting into question the sort of diplomatic relationship vis-à-vis rules of diplomacy that currently exist between the said countries and Nigeria.

” As Nigerians, we the Citizens Stability Forum (CSF) would like to ask the following questions: Why did the US act in such a manner to Nigeria? Also, will the US act in such a manner in other countries such as Saudi, UAE, Turkey, Egypt etc? Most importantly, does US act in such a manner in its own soil when faced with such security intelligence? We all know answers to the last two questions is an absolute No”.

“It is thus very unfortunate that the US went public with intelligence type of warning without sharing any solid or useful information with the Nigerian government, thus deliberately creating widespread speculation and panic and creating undue anxiety among Nigerians.

The group also noted that no countries in the world is impeccable of one security challenge or the other, adding that the US has the peculiarities of gun violence and mass shooting, that many school children usually victims of.

It said that there is a report that the security challenge of gun shooting have put many children and teens into serious mental health crisis, steadily eroding their sense of wellbeing and safety.

” Every country around the world has its own security challenges, which of course can be in different forms. The US for example has serious challenges of gun violence and mass shooting which is epidemic that school children are not spared. It has been reported that the security challenge due to gun violence and shootings have put many children and teens into serious mental health crisis, steadily eroding their sense of wellbeing, safety and efficacy known to be essential for development. According to published statistics from the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)there was 19,384 deaths in 2020 due to gun violence and mass shooting “.

Paradigmatic Shift in Literary Ignorance: Ajami on Naira Reloaded-Adamu

Echoing the sentiments of the group is its lead convener, Muktar Lawal who also expressed his displeasure over the public security alerts by the US,UK and Canadian embassies.

He noted that the issuance of the security alerts has endeared a lot of trepidations, fears and anxieties amongst the Nigerians living in the federal capital territory.

He wondered why these country had refused to relay such intelligence to the Nigerian government since there are favourable diplomatic ties amongst the country.

” The reason why we convene this press conference is for them to understand that issues like this, issues of security are very important and critical.

“They should channel it to the appropriate unit of the Federal Republic of Nigeria instead of going public and viral, and by doing this our security agencies will rise to the occasion and do the needful”, Muktar said.

Inclusive Action for Adolescent Girls’ Education in Kano State: Baseline Survey Findings Revealed




KANO, Nigeria – In a significant step toward fostering inclusive education for adolescent girls, a gathering was convened in Kano state to disseminate the findings of a baseline survey conducted in Nassarawa and Kano Municipal Local Government Areas (LGAs). Salisu Galadima, a key figure in the initiative, addressed the assembly, shedding light on critical issues affecting girls’ education in the region.

Galadima, while addressing the gathering, emphasized that a staggering 90 percent of school dropouts among adolescent girls in Kano state can be attributed to factors rooted in poverty. He pointed out that economic challenges force many families to withdraw their daughters from school, hindering their educational progress.

Another significant factor contributing to school dropouts, as highlighted in the survey, is the failure of adolescent girls to pass qualifying exams. The pressure and implications of these exams, often shaped by cultural and social norms, create barriers that disproportionately affect girls’ educational journeys.

Iliyasu Muazu Sharada, a village head of Sharada , proposed a unique solution to address the issue. He suggested the cancellation of the Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE) qualifying exam, contending that such a move would minimize school dropouts. His proposal sparked discussions on the broader implications of exam-centric educational systems and their impact on vulnerable populations.

Amidst the discussions, a prevailing sentiment emerged – the potential negative consequences of monetizing every aspect of education. Participants in the gathering voiced concerns that excessive financial demands within the educational system could exacerbate disparities and lead to increased dropout rates among adolescent girls.

The initiative’s commitment to inclusivity was evident in the diverse group of women drawn from the selected LGAs. The gathering served as a platform for these women to express their perspectives and experiences, contributing valuable insights to the ongoing discourse on improving educational outcomes for adolescent girls in Kano state.

As the dissemination of baseline survey findings marks a crucial step forward, the call for inclusive actions to address the multifaceted challenges faced by adolescent girls in pursuit of education gains momentum. The collaborative efforts of stakeholders and community members aim to create a more equitable educational landscape, ensuring that every girl has the opportunity to thrive in the pursuit of knowledge.

NNPP seeks EU, U.S, A.U interventions in Kano guber election verdict




The New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, has sought the interventions of the United States, European Union and African Union over what they described as manipulations of electoral verdict to overturn the victory of Kano State Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf.

At the protests staged on Wednesday in the embassies of U.S, E.U and AU in Abuja, the acting National Chairman of the NNPP, Abba Kawu Ali, said the lower court have compromised in their judgment with the Certified True Copy, CTC, of the Appeal Court verdict indicating that Governor Yusuf validly won the March 18 election.

He added that the NNPP protest in the embassies was to bring the issue to the notice of all well-meaning nations and well-meaning democratic organizations.

Ali said: “If at the point of delivering the judgment, there was a pronouncement that our Appeal failed but the CTC of the same judgment in its conclusive findings actually resolved all the issues in our favour, and even awarded costs in our favour against the APC, this definitely is a riddle.”

Speaking further,  the acting Chairman of the NNPP told the EU that, “We need you to bring your diplomacy, your soft power to play over the Nigerian government, the Nigerian presidency, so that the judiciary is left to do its work.

Further, Ali said, “We don’t need any favors. We want justice. We want justice for the people of Kano. And we say this because Kano is one of the most volatile states in this country”.

Ali, who warned of dangers of electoral injustice, noted that, “It happened in 2019. And it’s happening again. It’s some form of deja vu. We have done our best to tell the people of Kano to remain calm”.
