Indignation following the seat of the residence of Judge Odili
As of Friday, as yet unidentified security agents besieged the Abuja residence of Supreme Court judge Mary Odili, waving a search warrant that was found to contain irregularities. The condemnation of the siege – of Nigerian Bar Association and seasoned lawyers – was quick.
Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike on Sunday called the incident a an assassination attempt and called on the federal government to act within the next 48 hours.
Meanwhile, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, denied any knowledge of the operation.
Quote: “The problem here has nothing to do with the attorney general, we are glad he said he was unaware,” Governor Wike said. “We said, okay since you don’t know, we’re giving you 48 hours to tell us who’s responsible.”
President Buhari meets Tinubu
Sunday, President Muhammadu Buhari met another pillar of APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the State House in Abuja. The couple had already met in London two months ago when Tinubu was recovering from knee surgery. After the visit, the president left for Glasgow to attend the biggest climate change event of the year, COP26.
Quote: âI would like to thank, first of all, the President for his visit to my residence in London after the operation; wishing me good luck and uplifting my mind, âTinubu said after meeting the president. “Indeed, that’s what an exceptional leader will do.”
PDP offers new frameworks
After overcoming legal threats, the opposition party finally held its national convention on Saturday (and Sunday) and was able to elect new leaders to run its affairs.
Former Senate Speaker Iyorchia Ayu, perhaps unsurprisingly a consensus candidate, has become the new national president. And a 25-year-old Muhammed Suleiman was elected National Youth Leader. You can find the full list of frames here.
