Exposed: Police College Ikeja - nightmare!

The deplorable state of the Police college in Ikeja was recently exposed by Channels TV. The state of the college is a big shame to an institution that has made so much noice about changing their image and even uniform when infact their internal processes are in tatters!.

I dont see how anyone trained in this college can perform  as good as we expect them to. Continue to see the appalling pictures

Nigeria Comptroller General Of Immigration, Rose Uzoma, bows out!

While some reports say she was forced to retire, here is SR's account of the sack of Madam Immigrations.........

The Comptroller General of Nigeria Immigration Service, Mrs. Rose Uzoma, has been retired from service.
Her retirement followed the recruitment scandal that rocked the Service in the last few weeks. The controversial recruitment, in which she was accused of favouring people from her region, had since been cancelled by the Minister of Interior, Mr. Abba Moro.
Saharareporters learnt today that a strong petition was forwarded to President Goodluck Jonathan from the supervising minister, part of the petition read :
"The most recent posting of Men and Officers of the Service in which due process was initially followed with all required parties involved, including the Minister of Internal Affairs Mr. Abba Moro has been reversed by the comptroller.
Three weeks after the resumptions/reporting to their new beats, the CG of Immigration unilaterally prepared an impromptu circular (without the knowledge of the Minister of Internal Affairs and other stakeholders) to remove some of the newly posted officers and replace them with her loyalists.
An example is the Festac Passport Office in Lagos where there was an open confrontation between the newly posted officer (on the actual posting) and another officer (from Mrs. Uzoma list) was created on Thursday 10th of January, 2013."

Today's "retirement" was saving grace, as Mrs. Uzoma was asked to resign which she did.
Moro had issued a statement saying the former NIS boss had been allowed to go on her terminal leave.

Early campaign by President GEJ?

Some areas in Abuja; Asokoro, AYA and Wuse 5 had posters announcing the President GEJ's decision to  run for re-election. This was not obviously a welcome idea as most of the posters were instantly defaced and replaced by other forms of communication.
However, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Dr. Reuben Abati, in an interview tried to establish the fact that the posters did not emanate from the Presidency.
'The President has not authorised anybody to print any campaign poster for him as regards the 2015 elections. The President, he said, has stated that he would talk about the Presidency from 2014.What is most important now is for the president to deliver on his electioneering promises to Nigerians and not embark on the pasting of posters.It has not come from the president. Nigerians should take the president for his word and ignore any other information to the contrary"
