Confirming what some already suspected, an Australian international adviser, Stephen Davis, who was deep in the trenches of North-East Nigeria for four months in an effort to rescue the kidnapped Chibok school girls from Boko Haram terrorists, has stated that the terror organization has the financial backing of some Nigerian politicians currently in power!

Davis once once an adviser to Nigerian president Umaru Musa Yar’Adua.

Speaking on the political backers of Boko Haram, Davis said,

If the president moves against them, he would be accused of trying to rig the elections due early next year. So I think this will run through to the election unabated. These politicians think that if they win power they can turn these terrorists off, but this has mutated. It’s no longer a case of Muslims purifying by killing off Christians. They are just killing indiscriminately, beheading, disembowelling people – men, women and children and whole villages. I would say it’s almost beyond the control of the political sponsors now.

N1.9bn Ebola Intervention Fund Is For New Cars Not Virus

Remember the N1.9 Billion Ebola Intervention fund announced by the Federal Government to manage the deadly Ebola Virus in Nigeria? Yesterday (Aug. 26) the Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, informed journalists that contrary to reports the N1.9 billion isn’t to fight Ebola but rather for the procurement of vehicles for the ministry.

According to a press release signed by Reuben Abati on behalf of President GEJ, on August 8, N1.9 Billion was released as a Special Intervention Fund for the management of Ebola. Mr. Chukwu has however denied that the money was released for the management of Ebola. The Minister of Health said the money was approved for the Ministry of Health.

He said,

“The N1.9billion approved by the president was for the federal ministry of health. It is not for Ebola fund. It will be used to procure more vehicles for working which have been ordered. It would be used to procure more drugs that have been ordered…and other items.”
