#ENDSARS: ERELU TINUADE WARNS BUHARI AGAINST IMMINENT PROTEST. Says SARS to SWAT Means Same Problem With Different Name.*

 

 

 

Renown philanthropist, custodian of African culture and tradition Tinuade Mabel Onaneye, The Erelu Oodua of Aye Kingdom has on Tuesday 20th of October, 2020 blamed President Muhammadu Buhari for the on-going protests which have started two weeks ago all over major cities in Nigeria and warned him to act fast before the mass protest degenerate into the much-dreaded revolution.

 

 

 

The resolute and articulate crusader and advocate for true federalism made the declaration from her base in Texas, the United States through a release she signed and made available to the press and the general public via her media aide, Saint-Olawale Jimoh on the beautiful morning of Tuesday, 20th of October, 2020. She emphatically mentioned the moment Nigerian leaders fear so much has finally arrived and that there’s nothing any of them could do about it.

 

 

 

‘Nigerian leaders who have always behaved like Nigerians don’t amount to anything are beginning to realize the masses are no longer the fools and slaves they have been taking them to be. Unfortunately, they are unable to see the handwriting on the wall.’ Erelu stated.

 

 ‘In the same vein, I won’t be surprised if President Buhari takes the protests as the handiwork of a few rabble-rousers or at the very worst, opposition elements. It’s pathetic and the reality is staring right at them and borrowing from the words of our own Oonirisha, the youths are now fully awake.’ She added.

 

 

 

Erelu Mabel Tinuade further posited the protest is beyond #EndSARS and that even though the President has switched from SARS to SWAT which basically amounts to renaming the same problem instead of solving it. She assured the movement is for the soul of Nigeria. The masses are in addition to #EndSARS demanding a systemic overhaul of governance and institutional reforms as the barest minimum. She mentioned that judging from reports from Nigeria where for instance a governor was asked to come down from his long convoy before he could pass the roadblocks mounted by angry youths and a few other instances, then the revolution is very near than expected except President acts fast, the unexpected might happen.

 

 

 

It would be recalled that in some of Erelu’s past press statements, she has lamented the poor state of things in Nigeria and the new level of poverty Nigerian masses have been catapulted to by Buhari-led government. She had expressed worry over how Nigerian governments at all level treat the masses like some pieces of cabbage and warned that the masses might fight back if they’re pushed to the wall. Unfortunately, the time has come and she’s hoping the President might enter an agreement or dialogue with the protesters to calm the situation.

 

 

 

‘If the President can negotiate with terrorists, he can as well negotiate with peaceful protesters!’ She concluded.

GTBank suffers mass staff resignation

Published

on

 

The  IT division at GTBank has suffered a continual decrease in personnel within the last six months. It has caused a significant technical lacuna and work overload for current employees. Reports reaching 1st News have it that GTBank has been slow in promoting its staff; inadvertently triggering a wave of exits into the labour market which had attractive offers for their talent.

The shortage in manpower is bringing about increased workload; and mounting pressure on the remaining IT employees.

One staff said, “I was handling one application then it doubled as a result.”

Another one also: “There’s a particular team where three members left in the space of one month. Now, four people’s responsibilities are being juggled by one person.”

And yet another staff said, “The pressure is crazy. One person is doing three people’s jobs all in the name of efficiency. That’s why our cost to income ratio will always be the lowest in the industry.”

An undisclosed source said the frequent loss of experienced workers without commensurate hiring resulted in gaps in technical capabilities.

He said: “The application I am managing was handled by two people; but my partner has gone to join another team. If I’m leaving now, a new person can’t cram; and get a good grip of everything in my handover note within 3 weeks. We simply need more people on the team!”

This gap is often reflected when there is a service downtime towards the end of the month caused by server overload. During this period, transaction volume increases due to salary payments; and other month-end payments; leading to more pressure on existing resources.

Pyramids’ Road Trip Video to Aba Stadium, a Wake up Call, Says Egbe

Published

The Chief Executive Officer of Monimichelle Group, Ebi Egbe, has called on the federal government to do something on the state of the roads in the country, declaring that the state of the Port-Harcourt Aba Road has become a bad advertisement for the country.

The poor state of the federal highway came to the fore over the weekend when Egyptian side, Pyramids Football Club who flew in the club’s private jet landed

at the Port Harcourt Airport and made a video of the horrible road trip to Aba and posted it on the social media, calling it a shame.

Pyramids held Enyimba 1-1 in Aba yesterday but qualified 5-2 aggregate for the semi final of the CAF Confederation Cup.

But Egbe whose outfit constructed the Enyimba Stadium turf noted that the Egyptians deliberately wanted to paint the country in bad light by showing the video to the world.

Egbe was however quick to add that government on its part also need to avoid the country being embarrassed by her international visitors by fixing our roads.

“That video by Pyramids is to me, a wake up call for us to not only fix our stadiums but also fix our roads.

“Teams that come to Aba to play have always commended the playing turf. We need to get it right on all fronts. This is why I am appealing to the federal government to get our roads fixed.

“Our teams would return to the continent next term and it would be a shame if teams from other countries that are far less endowed come in and mock us that we ve got no good roads in the country,” Egbe stressed

He further charged the various state governments to also upgrade their stadium facilities just like other countries are doing.
