Putin Is A killer, He’ll Pay The Price – Biden

President of the United States of America, Joe Biden has described Vladimir Putin, Russian president, as a ‘killer.’

According to Biden, Putin will “pay a price” for interfering in the presidential election held in November 2020 in the U.S.

On assumption of office in January, the Biden administration had vowed to take a hard line against Russia over its history of attempting to assassinate and imprison dissidents and political opponents.

A report released on Tuesday by the U.S. intelligence said that the Russian leader authorized election influence operations aimed at denigrating Biden’s candidacy.

According to the report, Russia backed former President Donald Trump in undermining public confidence in the election and sowing divisions.

Seven Russian officials had earlier this month been sanctioned by the U.S. over the poisoning and jailing of an opposition leader.

And appearing on ABC on Wednesday, Biden said that he believes Putin is a “killer.”

“He will pay a price. We had a long talk, he and I. I know him relatively well and the conversation started off, I said, ‘I know you and you know me. If I establish this occurred then be prepared,’” Biden said.

“I said, ‘I looked in your eyes and I don’t think you have a soul.’ He looked back and said we understand each other.”

Recall that it took Russia some times to recognise President Biden as the President-elect after the November 3, 2020 general elections.

Joe Biden defeated his closest rival and incumbent President Donald Trump with 300 electoral votes and was sworn in on January 21, 2021, as the 46th President of the United States.

Mbazulike Amaechi, Nigeria’s First Republic Minister of Aviation, has accused the North of bringing inequity, inequality, and unfairness into the country’s governance.

The long military government led by Northerners, according to Amaechi, developed a lot of inequity and disparity in the country’s governance structure.

In a recent interview with journalists, the elder statesman claimed that the presidency can come from any part of the world.

He did, however, point out that Nigeria’s condition is not ideal since all of the country’s constituent units are not as they were formed by the founding fathers or inherited from the British administration.

According to Amaechi: “In an ideal situation, a President of Nigeria should come from any part of the federation but the Nigerian situation is not ideal because all the component units of Nigeria as presently constituted in the present-day Nigeria, which the founding fathers of the country created or inherited from the British administration, are not as they were created.

“The long military government led by the North introduced a lot of imbalance, injustice and unfairness.”

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday evening arrested a former governor of Imo State and senator representing Imo West senatorial district, Chief Rochas Okorocha, over alleged sleazes while he served as governor.

The former governor, it was learnt, was arrested in his Abuja residence by the operatives, who were said to have been on his trail for some time.

A source in the commission informed the Nigerian Tribune that the former governor was arrested following his failure to honour several invitations sent to him to report at the anti-graft agency’s headquarters in Abuja.

“EFCC resorted to his (Okorocha’s) arrest following his refusal to honour invitations sent to him. Many invitations were sent to him to report at the Abuja headquarters but he failed to do so. Before his arrest today (yesterday), our operatives have been on his trail for some days,” the source told Nigerian Tribune.

EFCC’s Head, Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed Okorocha’s arrest to Nigerian Tribune, saying that, “it is true he was arrested today. He is with us now.”

As of the time of filing this report, the former governor was still being questioned by interrogators and it is uncertain if he would be granted administrative bail to go home.

Though Uwujaren did not reveal the reason behind his arrest, sources informed that the senator had been on the anti-corruption commission’s radar since he left office in May 2019 and in July 2019, it sealed off some properties linked to the former governor, his wife and daughters in Imo State.

Group Decries Extra-Judicial Killing Of Fulani

A coalition of Fulani youth groups has called on the federal and state governments to ensure a halt to what they described as “the extra-judicial killings of Fulani in the country” by those opposed to the existence of the race.

The coalition in a communiqué after a press conference, Tuesday, in Abuja said they would not sit and watch their people labeled as miscreants and killing them like fouls in their own country.

The coalition under the aegis of Fulbe Umminobe Sukabe Development Association of Nigeria (FUSADAN) dissociated themselves from the group that reached an agreement with state governors over the recent crisis in parts of the South west.

Speaking on behalf of the group, the leader of FUSADAN, Comrade Mohammad Ardo, said of all the tribes in Nigeria, non is as law abiding as the Fulani, insisting that the stock have benefited the least from the Nigerian government.

He said the Fulani nation is fed up with being described as criminals whenever security challenges occur in the country.

“Of all the tribes in Nigeria, none is as law abiding as the Fulani but the Fulani have not benefited in any way from the Nigerian government; no schools, no place to graze, no electricity, water etc. This accusation of criminality must stop.

“Miyetti Allah is a Fulani group but they are not delivering their responsibilities, which is why the Fulani youths have gathered themselves to take a stand because they are not delivering what we want.

“A meeting was held recently in the South-west where some Fulani organisation signed and accepted an agreement that grazing should be stopped. If it was a real Fulani organisation, they wouldn’t have accepted because if the government wants us to stop, they must provide certain things for the Fulani because we have had grazing reserves before independence.

“Fulani are fully Nigerians and they have the right to travel, live and graze anywhere in Nigeria as enshrined in the Constitution of the country. Any newspaper, magazine, journal or any other news channel that uses the name ‘Fulani’ to qualify any crime or criminal should be ready to meet our lawyers in court. We say emphatically that, enough is enough of these senseless killings of innocent Fulani and their herds across the South-West and South-east states of the country.”
