Viv: Latest Gist!





Okay Tee. Since you are not currently in Nigeria our country, I have
decided to keep you updated on hot gists happening every day. from
political to entertainment to gossip and even rumours back to back.



I am in a good mood this month.

Why?

1. I am alive(vivian)
2. My School IT supervisor came to supervise my industrial training and
I was given excellent... Woooow. Half way to getting my desired A. Six
credits load no be here o
3. Yaaaay I subscribed fully till November.(haven't done that for like
6 months now) You know that feeling when you are assured that you will
be online till mama calls. .. hehehe
4. Ahhhhhh am a talkative abi, no mind me joor.


.

LOL Vivian thanks for sharing, I'm waiting for your posts ooooo! 

So tell me guys, what's going on in Nigeria/Lagos? It would be so cool if this post could be the one stop place for recent happenings in Naija so I'm saved the stress of going to LIB, NL, BN etc. 

All you can do for me is tell me what's happening in the news, entertainment, in the media or anything around you that caught your interest. 

And while we're at it, share your thoughts on the gestapo-style arrest of the Justices? Are you one of those "This is the change we voted for!" people, or were you alarmed to learn that there's no rule of law in Nigeria?

Let's talk.

  2. Alarmed is an understatement. Granted the Judiciary has been compromised a Long time ago. We have institutionalized corruption in Nigeria and the Judiciary is not exempted.
    I think the way and manner they went about it is wrong and it is sending wrong signals. Though some think that's the only way the fights against corruption would work. The violent taketh it by force approach.
    I just hope that as Buhari is fighting corruption, he doesn't forget the terrible state of the economy. What most people care about right now is how we are going to get out of this recession and not this one sided man-hunt. The sad thing is that these criminals would be paraded and eventually let go because the "rule of law" or "due process" would eventually drag the process till we forget and Justice would not be served. Nigerians forget too quickly and easily.

    In other news, this coming Monday is a very big day. The days after it too would determine a lot. Y'all should say a word of prayer or two for my family.😊

    And yes!!! 70 days is ending on Sunday!!! That's news to you Thelma😜 So yeah! You're welcome! 😘😍

    2. Loool.... I wish.

      Memphis I agree with you but my first reaction to what happened: "People have been predicti threat Buhari would be a dictator and the rule of law won't mean anything to him now this?" Wrong signals. Some people could have capitalized on my ignorance and that of so many other people to start another campaign of calumny. Or even worse.
      Apparently in the The Administration of Criminal Justice Act (2015) allows a person to be arrested notwithstanding that the person arresting him is not in possession of an arrest warrant on demand, but can show the warrant as soon as practicable. Section 44 ACJA. Out of all the highlights oI read, this stuck!
      Some others:
      a law officer has the power to break into and out of any house for the purpose of arresting a suspect who fails to let the arresting officer in.
      6. Section 43 (1) ACJA states: "A warrant of arrest may be executed on any day, including a Sunday or public holiday."
      7. The person arresting may not necessarily be the person to prosecute. A private person may arrest a suspect and hand him over to a prosecuting authority(Section 23 ACJA).

      That's how I mistakenly posted the comment.

    4. The Senate is now considering amending the ACJA 2015 because of what happened. Lol...these people..

  3. I remember a particular Post Thelma said something about the strong desire to strangle an ex that really messed her up. I've also seen comments from the likes of madam Obi Ezekwesili acknowledging the "Rule of Law" but saying one should have the morality to first, foremost, and vehemently condemn a suspect when you're at the receiving end of the atrocity (her comments on those sympathizing with Dasuki).

    I'm not vast on the process of the law and I'm not ready to debate the actions of the DSS, especially when we have divergent views from Lawyers and professors of Law on this matter. But what baffles me is how people forget so easily that corrupt judges are more or less terrorists in the society. How people aren't more focused on dealing with the corruption in the judiciary that has destroyed innocent lives and wrecked flourishing homes. How their judgments have caused confusions and discord in the society and dragged us centuries backwards. This is what surprises me.

    You hear DSS raids judges, probably the 1st time such a thing is happening in a Nigerian Democratic Era, and our VERY FIRST reaction is to protect the interests of these destroyers of innocent lives. Yesterday someone said on Facebook: "if you've never had a case against a rich man in Nigeria, your advocacy for the rule of law as a first reaction is understandable". And I think that was mild.

    Have you had a friend or loved one incarcerated unjustly, or had your property seized or contracts not honored and judges rule against you? If you haven't, ask those who have tasted injustice and tell them about the DSS raid. Their reaction will tell you whether they care about "Rule of Law" or "Gestapo" style.

    By the way, one of the judges had an unlicensed pump action rifle and bullets.

  4. Me, I've always said the Judiciary is the problem of this country. So I'm for 'this is the change we voted for'.

    Finally some judicial scapegoats to work with...
