They are popular, they are influential and some are powerful by the virtue of the political positions they occupy. They’ve been able to use their fame or positions to influence People, their Environ And Communities. There are also the top 20 Most Influential Nigerian Entertainers. 1) STEPHANIE OKEREKE LINUS Stephanie has much access to the presidency more than any other entertainer. The relationship between the first family and Stephanie dates back to the time Jonathan was still the deputy Governor of Bayelsa state.

AN OPEN LETTER TO ALL MEMBER(S) OF THIS FORUM This part of my letter is on the securities matters only, and the next time, i will justify on another incapacitation of president Gudluck Jonathan Admin. Every patriotic Nigerians will not re-elect President Gudluck Jonathan in the upcoming general Election of 2015 because of the following reasons 1. When President Goodluck Jonathan steps off the presidential jet from his Jeniva trip today, he will have 150 days left in office. In July 2011 when I penned his Countdown Calendar for the first time, he had almost 370. 2. Those 150 days come from the constitutional clock. In practical terms, the Jonathan presidency ran out of time and meaning a long time ago. In the past couple of months, President Jonathan has proved to the world, sadly, that his critics were right. 3. Last week, he journeyed to South Africa supposedly to discuss the militancy challenge confronting Africa. According to his spokesman, Reuben Abati, he was expected to discuss with continental lead ...
Special Adviser to the president on media and publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati noted in a statement that the Nairobi meeting.
The Presidency on Sunday said there was no truth in media reports that President Goodluck Jonathan was flown to Germany on Friday for medical attention. Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, said this in a telephone interview with our correspondent from Germany, where the President had been since Friday on a “private visit.” Abati had last Thursday issued a three-paragraph statement, indicating that Jonathan, with a few aides, was travelling to Germany on a private visit and should be expected back this week. Media reports however had it that the President had been taken to a German hospital after he suddenly fallen ill. According to the reports, an earlier planned dinner for members of the just-concluded 2014 National Conference on Thursday had to be cancelled because of the sudden illness of the President. But Abati told our correspondent on the telephone that the reports were “the figments of the writers’ imagination.” He said the President had the right t ...
From Nasir Lawal Danmowa's wall. Jonathan’s Illness Exposes Nation’s Need For Healing The concealed state of health of President Goodluck Jonathan, who is on medical treatment in Germany, has reinforced an urgent need for the nation’s healing in the areas of unity, socio-cultural cohesion and strengthening of enduring bridges of understanding. Less than 10 hours after LEADERSHIP Weekend’s exclusive story on the medical visit that was masked as a private trip by Presidency officials, online reactions to the publication exposed the deep regional, political and religious sentiments in the country. Commentators were sharply divided along such lines. Jonathan’s trip to Germany had elicited suspicion and speculations on Thursday night when his spokesman Reuben Abati issued a terse statement announcing the visit to the European country as the president was scheduled to host members of the just concluded national conference on Thursday night at the Presidential Villa. LEADERSHIP Weekend had made frantic ...

While Jonathan and the national leadership of the PDP conceded defeat to Aregbesola , the PDP in Osun rejected the election result. The APC candidate who is the incumbent governor of the state polled 394,684 to defeat his PDP counterpart, Iyiola Omisore, who scored 292,750 in the final results announced by the Returning Officer, Prof. Bamitale Omole, on Sunday morning. Jonathan, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, congratulated the winner and said the peaceful conduct of the election reaffi ...
Jonathan declares state of emergency over Ebola 2014-08-08 18:34 Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan declared a national state of emergency on Friday over the Ebola outbreak in Africa's most populous country, and approved 1.9 billion naira ($11.7 million) of emergency funds to contain it. Nigeria has confirmed seven cases of Ebola in its commercial capital Lagos since a man fell sick on arrival from Liberia, two of whom have died. Several dozen people who came into contact with the man are under surveillance. Jonathan's spokesman Reuben Abati said the money would pay to "strengthen steps to contain the virus such as ... additional isolation centres, case management, contact tracing, deployment of additional personnel, screening at borders, and the procurement of required items and facilities".

THE CLOSED DOORS MEETING OF President Goodluck Jonathan WITH THE PARENTS OF CHIBOK GIRLS, ABDUCTED MORE THAN 3 MONTHS AGO BY Boko Haram INSURGENTS, HAS REPORTEDLY FINISHED. According to The Nation, among those who attended the meeting were about 51 secondary school girls that escaped from terrorists, their parents, some parents of girls still in captivity and community and opinion leaders from Chibok, Borno State. Speaking with his guests at the Banquet Hall of the State House, the country leader promised to bring back the girls alive. He assured parents that the Nigerian government was doing everything possible to let the victims reunite with their families as soon as possible. After the 2.30-hour meeting not allowed to be attended by the journalists the President’s media aide Dr. Reuben Abati briefed the journalists: "It was a very successful event and a good development because Mr. President had always been looking forward to this opportunity… Statements were made by all the representatives of peo ...
by Dr. Peregrino Brimah Firstly, in desperate and disaster times like these and despite the deaths, loses, tragedies and adversity, there is one victor and we felicitate with them: Toyota! Who wan buy bullet-proof Toyota? Err, we sell and supply bullet-proof Toyota, contact us for yours, everyone get one or die trying to. Seriously, we bet Toyota are already on the ground in Nigeria examining and documenting the first actual real-life test of their bomb-proof vehicles. Watch-out for the next Toyota ad- ‘saved a Nigerian opposition politician, General Buhari, live and direct….’ So, here is a list of the suspects who may want Buhari dead; not particularly arranged in any order: 1. Reuben Abati: The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to Goodluck Jonathan, the Presdent of Nigeria. Reuben Abati is not a particular fan of General Muhammadu Buhari. We recently detailed how it was Reuben Abati that cooked up the libelous and slanderous accusation of Buhari being behind terror in Nigeria. His infamous ...
JONATHAN MEETS WITH PARENTS OF ABDUCTED hundred days after the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls in Chibok, Borno State, by Boko Haram terrorists, President Goodluck Jonathan, yesterday, met with parents of the girls. At the closed-door meeting were 53 of the girls, who had earlier escaped from their abductors as well as representatives of Chibok community and other stakeholders. The meeting which started at about 11 o’clock ended at about 2:15 pm. Also at the meeting were Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State; Governor Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State and the Senate President, David Mark. An earlier attempt to hold the meeting did not materialize as representatives of the community declined to meet the President after meeting Pakistani girl-child education activist, Malala Yousafzai. Speaking on the outcome of the Abuja meeting,Dr. Reuben Abati (Special Adviser to the President on Media & Publicity), said President Jonathan reassured the Chibok community that his Administration was doing everything hu ...
"Insult Upon Injury" - By Hussaina Ishaya Audu via Premium Times - July 16, 2014 “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” Abraham Lincoln I don’t like Goodluck Jonathan. I have asked myself why because I believe emotions should have a rational basis. It would be illogical for me to have an unexplainable aversion for someone. I dislike Jonathan because I detest insincerity. And I hate people trying to insult my intelligence. Why should Jonathan use over $1.2 million of Nigeria’s money to clean up a mess he created all by himself? After all, didn’t he appoint Reuben Abati and Doyin Okupe all by himself? How then can he justify hiring a PR firm at said cost to repair an image he has undone by his own action and inaction and with the help of his two aides? Is he going to sack them or are they going to continue receiving salaries while Levick and co do their work for them? And thinking about it, it’s actual ...
Reuben Abati: 'Mr President is thinking of changing his middle-name from "Ebele" to "eBELLO" in an bid to appease Boko Haram'.

Well, can we forget the Reuben Abati example??. I think not.
Tell that to Jonathan,he is the only person you can mislead. Or share this with Reuben Abati.

[TODAY] CHIBOK GIRLS: Jonathan is not the problem – Reuben Abati
The Presidency on Friday said it was not true that the Goodluck Jonathan administration was repressing the opposition in the build-up to the Ekiti governorship election. Mr. Jonathan’s spokesperson, Reuben Abati, in a statement on Thursday said the allegation by the APC National Chairman, John Oyegun, was like crying “wolf where there is none.” “It is absolutely wrong to accuse this administration of repression,” Mr. Abati said. “If anything, this administration has been most tolerant of opposition and most respectful of everybody’s right of association. This accusation cannot stand at all.” Mr. Oyegun and the APC had earlier accused the Federal Government of using security agencies to frustrate its activities including barring its governors from entering Ekiti to campaign for Governor Kayode Fayemi. “We urge President Goodluck Jonathan to live up to his pledge, made several times over, that he would always ensure that elections held under his watch are free and fair, and that his ambiti ...
Roli Nigerians received the news of Roli Adeniyi’s appointment as new NDLEA chairman with shock.Roli is the wife of PDP top shot, Chief Bode George and her appointment was announced in a statement signed Reuben Abati, meaia aide to President Goodluck Jonathan. This is because most people see her more as a socialite than someone who can handle a ‘serious’ organization as national drug law enforcement agency. The public image of Roli is that of a beautiful woman with flamboyant lifestyles. However, that opinion seems to be a no-no to those who know her from close quarters. The former university of Benin beauty queen has brains too. Roli was a commissioner of the Nigeria Population Commission (NPC) for sometime but the office didn’t put her in the spotlight as her recent appointment as Chairman of NDLEA. The question is, what will change in NDLEA now that Roli is there?Pray that any leader of core-supporter of the opposition party, APC is not arrested,otherwise to would be called political victimiz . ...
If Jonathanians can congratulate a rumoured and an imaginary Kano Emir more than 5 hours before the real confirmation by the Kano state government, I wonder what is stopping Reuben Abati, Labaran Maku or Doyin Okupe from sending President Jonathan's good will messages to Allah's anointed Emir of Kano HRM Sanusi Lamido Sanusi more than than 4 hours after the official announcment. There is God oool!

No Wonder Rere dey Run, By Pius Adesanmi - Aso Rock Villa. Living Room of the President’s private residence. Israeli, American, French, Chinese, Cambodian, Somalian, Sudanese, and Ghanaian security operatives protecting the Nigerian president are in the background. They try to make themselves unobtrusive. Also in the background, chanting Quranic hymns on mats imported from Chad, are marabouts from Niger, Senegal, and Gambia. At the centre of the living room, some distance away from all the foreign intelligence and spiritual protectors of the President, the usual suspects gather, wearing gloomy faces: President Goodluck Jonathan, Chief Tony Anenih, Baba Iyabo, Ayo Oritsejafor, Mohammed Adoke, Doyin Okupe, Reuben Abati, and other inconsequential AGIPs.

May 30, 2014 “Prophet Abati” by Tony Dada    “It is very easy in a Presidential position in Nigeria, nay Africa, to get carried away with the ceremonies of office, to be largely overwhelmed by the fawning attention of sycophants and opportunists, and as the intensity of this increase, the man of power begins to imagine himself a superman, and he soon forgets his primary assignment and begins to enjoy the office for its own sake and what it can bring. It is both a practical and psychological pitfall, the drama of which has been played out all too often in many African states, to the great discomfort and disadvantage of the people. It looks like President Goodluck Jonathan is beginning to fall into that pot. He needs to watch his steps.” Culled from the article “Hurry up, Jonathan” by Reuben Abati, published by The Guardian, May 15 2010.   I have been engaged in an innate riot of thoughts in my head since I recently stumbled on the aforementioned article posted on one of the online media plat ...
You wake up struggling with your resolve last night not to talk about the yellow card offences of the Government. It is disheartening. How do you deal with the wobble of President Goodluck on the challenge of the insurgency. He says one thing, Youth Minister Boni Haruna says another, Reuben Abati counters Boni Haruna's public posture. Then Information Minister runs his mouth with the most outlandish conclusions on what Nigeria is faced with. Where in the world do you ban a protest like the ? First you organize a counter, which receives a public donation and raids the original one, the the Commissioner of Police of the Federal Capital bans public protests. Were these acts thought out Government would have acted differently. Now what? Those dumbos do not realise that media focus on a protest in however remote a corner of the world takes it to the centre? All morning, my dear country Nigeria has been with the laundry. Insults don't wash dirt. They pile up on dirt to become grime. I am looking at Nigeria's gr ...
Mahmud Jega advises the Jonathanians to "DISOWN THESE ONES AS WELL" - 2nd June 2014 - Mahmud Jega He has been a minister for only a few months. He was a state governor for eight years who fell out with his political godfather, remained in PDP and made into the Federal cabinet after he organised a group of former governors for Jonathan 2015. He ended up in the less-fancied Ministry of Youth Development and at the weekend, Mr Boni Haruna received a public dressing down from higher quarters without precedent in the Jonathan presidency. Haruna had in a speech on May 29 urged the youth to support the amnesty program that he said President Jonathan offered to Boko Haram insurgents. But the president’s spokesman Reuben Abati harshly disowned Haruna at the weekend, saying the minister is on his own and that the president did not use the term amnesty in his televised May 29 speech. According to Abati, the president only “spoke about those who are willing to denounce terrorism, those who are ready to embrace pe ...

is empty without money. This man is just a procurement officer! Who out of inferiority complex procures the oil big boys as friends. Who out of incompetence procures the print media. Who due to lack of credibility procures Professors and former Presidents. Just yesterday has again procured social media consultants and has handed them his mission statements: 1- Bring down President Jonathan at all cost. 2: If (1) doesn't work, then paint a picture in the hearts of Rivers people, that has entered a pact with President Jonathan to remain in APC to support Mr. President's re-election. 3: and Mr President has in turn given his nod to bring an "unworthy" successor. It is important to alert the unsuspecting public that The Vanguard newspaper has already been procured for this assignment (The release of Rivers jet and Jonathan's friend balderdash). Therefore, with permission from the desk of Dr. Reuben Abati, I wish to emphatically say that the story is completely false and unfounded. Mr. President did not ente . ...
We are confronted with all manner of spokespersons reeling out information after another. They are brazen and audacious, in total lack of decorum and sedateness. We once had a Minister in this country who told us telephone was not for the poor. Can you beat that? In the last one month alone, they have been all categories of information handlers who do nothing but confused the populace. But truly speaking, who should we listen to? Is it Doyin Okupke, Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs, Reuben Abati, SSA on Media and Publicity, Labaran Maku or Anyim Pius Ayim, Secretary to the Federal Government? Let us stop at this four personalities but, to be candid the list is endless. We could go on and on. When the White House releases a statement, most likely it emanated from Jay Carney, when the British foreign office speaks, who else but William Hague is communicating. So who speaks for Aso Rock? Didn't they say information is power? Or better still, precise and concise information is not just power, it get ...
“People who have never run a poultry are grandstanding about running a country. Lai Muhammed is not in the position to talk about competence,"—Abati. Reuben Abati —"It is very clear that the APC is being dishonest. Its intention is to play politics with insurgency and terrorism. “I think the question needs to be pointedly asked: `What country does the APC belongs to? “What country is the APC seeking to preside over? “As it appears, the APC seems blinded by its own narrow ambition and that is why in recent times, you can find some persons purportedly speaking for the APC making completely illogical and unreasonable statements. “If you look at the statement by Lai Muhammed, he is accusing the government of abdicating its responsibilities. “President Jonathan has never at any time abdicated responsibilities. .“He has consistently made it clear that the safety of every Nigerian is important to him, that the security of lives and property is central to all the goals and objectives of this ad ...

Jonathan Leaves For Paris To Mobilise Joint Action President Goodluck Jonathan will on Friday travel to Paris, France to participate in a security summit convened by President Francois Hollande where fresh strategies for dealing with the security threat posed by Boko Haram and other terrorist groups in West and Central Africa will be mapped out. According to the presidential spokesman, Dr. Reuben Abati noted that Jonathan would be joined at the summit by heads of state and government of Benin Republic, Cameroon, Niger and Chad. “It is also expected that Britain, the United States of America and the European Union will be represented at the talks which will give special attention to the coordination and intensification of efforts to curtail the destabilising activities of Boko Haram in Nigeria and neighbouring countries in the wake of the recent abduction of college girls from Chibok, Borno State,” Abati stated. He further said President Jonathan, “who will be accompanied by the Minister of Defence . ...
The President of The Federal Republic Of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan earlier today expressed his optimism towards intervention from the international community whom he said are set to deplore a considerable amount of military, intelligence accumulation skills and assets in support of Nigeria’s on-going war against terrorism. A statement released by the President’s Senior Special Adviser on Media, Dr. Reuben Abati claimed that the President said this while speaking with the Israeli Prime Minister, Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu via telephone. He said the Israeli leader called on Sunday afternoon to convey his country’s sympathy and solidarity with Nigeria and offered anti-terrorism assistance. President Jonathan welcomed the offer by Mr. Netanyahu to send a team of Israeli counter-terrorism experts to assist in the ongoing search and rescue operations for the school girls abducted from their school dormitory on April 14 2014 in chibok, Borno State. Abati said, “The President briefed Mr. Netanyahu on actions ...
Sir. You snap very clear pictures. You would be our own Reuben Abati but a credibe Abati when Gen Buhari is elected by 2015.
GEJ should rid of Reuben Abati & Labaran Maku with immediate effect, else they should take a crash course on Info. & comm. mgt.
If i were President Jonathan, I would stop having all these unpresidential media chats, I would make few comments on air, I would get good and excellent PR consultants to develop responses to lots of these issues in the front burner. I would sack Reuben Abati, Doyin Okupe, Labaran Maku, and the cohort. I would also convince mama *** to be a silent wife of Mr president, appearing in public with Mr president but never to be heard. I would also lead in the present by tackling issues as a Nigerian and not as a Christian president, an Ijaw president, a south south president, a minority president etc. I would try to engrave and emulate great leaders of contemporary times with international best practises. But who am I but a bloody bone setter and tormentor of bad governance.
OmG someone shud just shoot me. I'm done I'm done with the pple in GEJ's gov't. Reuben Abati, Doyin Okupe, Labaran Maku n the rest. Oh lord!
Reuben Abati, Doyin Okupe, Labaran Maku, should all bury their head in shame for belonging to this kind of Government of pain, I so much detest every bit of their contribution and support for Jonathan. They have murdered truth and truth is ready to expose and confine them into shame and regret for not telling us the true state of the nation. Rather they enjoy packaging Jonathan with false hood and lies. Nigerians must realize that now is the time to unlock the door to our deliverance from state of despair. Can we win this WAR?
CHIBOK UPDATE British to deploy Advanced Tracking Imaging capabilities for the search and rescue operation of Chibok girls. This was made known by Presidential media aid, Reuben Abati after President Jonathan have a telephone conversation today with British Prime Minister, David Cameron. With the deployment of this modern tracking technologies devices couple with support by American and Nigeria securities, the operation will be successful but my fear is the safety of those girls. Military actions in rescue operation always result in casualties. The Beslan School and Moscow Theater are case study. We should not only dwell on but we should also consider because they can be brought lifeless. God forbid.
I have always seen the information minister, Labaran Maku, presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati, S A to president on political affairs, Doyin Okupe all speaking on Terrorism, but, neither d senior or state minister of defense has issued a word/statement on the state of affairs on security matter in Nigeria, why?
Reuben Abati is Nig. Govt Spokesman; Jay Carney is White House Press Sec. One of them is lying. One is the most likely to be lying. (2)
THE RISE & FALL OF Gulak THE TALKATIVE Last Tuesday, the Presidential spokesman Reuben Abati announced the termination of the appointment of Alhaji Ahmed Gulak, Special Adviser (Political), to President Goodluck Jonathan. Abati, in a short statement, said the sack was with immediate effect. In the statement, Jonathan thanked Gulak for his services to the present administration and wished him success in his future endeavors. He said a replacement for Gulak, who hails from Adamawa State, would be announced in due course. The statement failed to reveal the reasons for the sack of Gulak, a lawyer and former legislator, who once served as National Coordinator of Goodluck Support Group (GSG), a group which campaigned for President Jonathan’s election in 2011 and which has commenced fresh campaigns for the 2015 re- election bid of Mr President. But Mr. 10 Things gathered that the sudden termination of the appointment of Gulak might not been unconnected with his alleged interference in the politics of Akwa Ibom ...
President Goodluck Jonathan has sacked his Special Adviser on Political Matters, Ahmed Gulak, with immediate effect, presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati, has said.
Now that President Goodluck Jonathan has confirmed that “Gen. Muhammadu Buhari is a true patriot, respected former Head of State and elder statesman and a nationalist", there is no further reason to doubt that Reuben Abati, Doyin Okupe and Olisa Metuh are just bags of wind! Their principal, President Jonathan has more or less said in effect, "Father Buhari forgive them, for they know not what they say!" Does it still make sense for anyone to link Buhari with Boko Haram? I'll not speculate whether it is Buhari's threat of going to court that prompted this volte face; it is sufficient that he has been cleared by the Chief Security Officer of Nigeria. I want to believe that Jonathan's conscience could not bear the continous slander of Buhari without any iota of evidence; and this is what prompted this U-turn; otherwise, he is not worthy of the office of president if what he said is a lie! It demands an uncommon level of humanity to dispel prejudice, so those who still insist on linking Buhari with Boko Har ...

INA SAKANIN KU BANDA MARI ! Nigeria's suspended Central Bank Governor, Sanusi Lamido, accused by President Goodluck Jonathan of wasting public funds on unapproved projects, has provided details of how the president himself personally authorized some of those spending, one of them a multibillion naira purchase of helicopters for the police, and another, a N2.1 billion renovation of the cabinet meeting room in the Presidential Villa. Mr. Sanusi said the police project, which also involved buying other security equipment, cost N19.7 billion, and that it was carried out "upon the instruction" of President Jonathan. The president, he said, also requested that the CBN pay N3.2 billion for the construction of a new counter terrorism centre for the office of the National Security Adviser, alongside other projects. "Consistent with our policy of development, upon the instruction of His Excellency, the President, the CBN intervened by paying N19.7 Billion to the Ministry of Police Affairs for the purchase of armour ...

Top News for Thursday - 20th March, 2014 1. President Goodluck Jonathan, yesterday, at the Federal Executive Council ordered for the cancellation of the controversial Immigration aptitude test where over 18 people lost their lives. Jonathan equally disclosed that families of the deceased candidates should provide 3 candidates each for the job, while the injured candidates will equally be given automatic employment. 2. President Goodluck Jonathan, yesterday, argued that the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court lacks the jurisdiction to preside over a suit seeking to overturn the suspension of governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi. Jonathan, through his counsels had argued that Sanusi should have filed the suit at the National Industrial Court, instead of the Federal High Court. 3. Despite Bayelsa state government’s claim that it did not mandate one, Mr. George Uboh to file a suit against the EFCC over the recovered loot of former Bayelsa state Governor, Diepreye Al ...
REUBEN ABATI - If he were to still be an editor in his former work place, I imagine how he would 've taken on the Jonathan led Fed. Govt. on the NIS Job seekers sad story. The gross inability to organise and execute. The robbery of N1000 from over a million youth (over N1billion). The death of over 19 job applicants + several injured and still purpotedly receiving "generous" treatment courtesy of the FG. The comments of the Minister of Interior Affairs. The unreasonable response of his boss Just wondering what the 'spokesperson of the president' would 've said or written. Hmm! How time and people change.
The suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi yesterday responded to the allegations of financial recklessness filed against him by the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRCN) which led to his suspension last month. Last week, presidential spokesman, Reuben Abati challenged Sanusi to respond to the allegations and stop playing the victim. In a 28-page reply emailed to Daily Trust yesterday, Sanusi said the response was necessary to clarify the allegations against the CBN cited as the reasons for his suspension from office with effect from 19th of February 2014. Sanusi gave detailed explanation on the issues raised by the council and attached evidences on each allegation against him. The response tilted: ‘Memorandum Responding to The FRCN Allegations,” Sanusi said some of the monies alleged to have been spent recklessly were paid on the instruction of the President Goodluck Jonathan. For instance, on the intervention projects which were regarded as unlawfu ...
National News Thursday, March 20, 2014 1. Jonathan Cancels Fatal Recruitment Exercise • Grants job concessions to families of deceased, injured victims • Sets up special committee to conduct fresh employment • NIS board blames minister for tragedy President Goodluck Jonathan has cancelled last Saturday’s recruitment by the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), which turned tragic when over 16 job seekers died in stampedes at various centres nationwide. He directed the conduct of a fresh employment process that will be supervised by a special committee headed by the Chairman of the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC), Mrs. Joan Ayo, to fill the vacancies in the NIS. Also, in a bid to appease the families of the deceased applicants and those injured during the exercise, the president has ordered that they should be given preferential treatment in the recruitment process. Minister of Information, Mr. Labaran Maku, told State House reporters yesterday in Abuja after the weekly meeting of the Federa ...
What happened on Saturday was a national tragedy and I pray for The Lord to console the families of the departed ones. The incident could only happen in a country like Nigeria or how would you explain that. Those who organised the recruitment were inhuman and should not remain in their posts any longer. People are unemployed and you are asking them to pay 1000 Naira, to steal or beg? Who suggested this? Who are the people who agreed to the suggestion. The people must be hanged, they are not good for our society or any society at all. It is only in Nigeria that such a Minister will remain in post and not resign. It is not enough for the President to hive a warning. In an ideal world or a disciplined society that is not corrupt the incident was a gross misconduct. The automatic penalty should be at least a sack if the Minister has no shame to resign honourably. What am I saying is there any thing honourable in our society? I wonder what Dr Abati would have written in his Guardian news paper column but he is ...
The Sunday Sting, Abuja Reno Omokri, the under fire presidential spokesperson, has accused his village witches of being behind his recent travails. The outspoken presidential aide, who was recently accused of attempting to spread false story about the suspended Central Bank Governor, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi using a fake ID, insisted he was not to blame for the lapse in judgement. Omokri explained the situation on NTA’s AM Express this morning: ‘Let us be clear, I did not really attempt to link Mallam Sanusi with Boko Haram. What happened was that a draft of a short story I was working on was sent out prematurely. My assistant was hypnotized by these wicked witches to send it out before we could properly mask our signature on the document. I repeat, what you guys saw on the internet was a short fiction I was working on, and that name, Wendell Simlin, is my pen name for fiction writing.’ ‘It was all the doing of the witches who have been working against me all along. They didn’t want me to suc ...

Badeh is CDS, Jibrin heads Navy, Amosu heads Air Force President Goodluck Jonathan has replaced all the military chiefs in sweeping changes at the top of the Nigerian armed forces announced yesterday. He named Air Marshal Alex Badeh as Chief of Defence Staff after removing Admiral Ola Sa’ad Ibrahim from the post. Major-General Kenneth Tobiah Jacob Minimah has, as predicted by Daily Trust, replaced Lieutenant-General Azubike O. Ihejirika as Chief of Army Staff. Daily Trust exclusively reported in January last year that Major-General Minimah was being groomed for that post (see the full story reproduced on this page). Further details on the changes show that Rear Admiral Usman O. Jibrin has replaced Vice Admiral Dele Joseph Ezeoba as Chief of Naval Staff while Air Vice Marshal Adesola Nunayon Amosu takes over from Air Marshal Badeh as Chief of Air Staff. A statement from presidential spokesman Reuben Abati said the president had already briefed the leadership of the National Assembly on the new appointmen ...

Oghiadhome’s kinsmen celebrate his removal from office... Report has it that there was jubilation on Tuesday in Fugar, Edo State, country home of President Goodluck Jonathan’s former Chief of Staff, Mike Oghiadhome over his removal from office. Kinsmen of the former CoS, including market women, who had accused him of abandoning his people, were said to have sang and danced round the community as news of Oghiadhome’s exit from office became known. Though, a communique by Jonathan’s spokesman, Reuben Abati, on Monday said Oghiadhome voluntarily resigned to pursue his political ambition, his kinsmen have continued to insist that he was sacked from office. One of Oghiadhome’s kinsmen told newsmen that, “We were happy when we heard the news. Of what relevance is Oghiadomhe to Fugar people that he has neglected? Rather, he used his position to oppress and intimidate our poor people. “Look at what the late (Mike) Akhigbe did for us, but sadly he (Oghiadomhe) preferred to keep enmity with him (Akhig ...
Reasons Nigerians Should Vote Out Jonathan ––Fani-Kayode Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has been in the eye of the storm since the deportation of some Igbo from Lagos to Anambra State. The former Minister of Aviation has been critical of the Goodluck Jonathan administration which, he said, has performed abysmally. In this first part of the explosive interview, Fani-Kayode speaks on his trial, Olusegun Obasanjo administration, 2015 elections and other salient issues. Excerpts: How is life out of government and what are those things you are actually missing? I do not miss being out of government. I have served my country for four years at the highest level and it is good enough. Recently, the President’s spokesman described some of you that worked with the Obasanjo administration who are critical of the Goodluck Jonathan administration as yesterday’s men.

My Dear Chief Anenih . LEADERSHIP NEWSPAPER BACKPAGE The world is expecting me to respond today to the letter you wrote me, so I will go straight to the point. Your letter to me, sir, was a little strange because I can’t see what you intend to achieve. But, as my Esan friend recently told me, there is a saying in your place that “when a bird suddenly begins dancing on top of the tree, then there is music under the ground”. As the Iyasele of Esanland, you must be well familiar with that adage. But even with the music playing from Aso Rock, you should not have allowed yourself to write that kind of letter. The letter greatly diminished you, sir, and you must have already realised that from the kind of comments about you all over the social media since your letter was released. If the responses in the social media do not mean anything to you, surely, they will to your children and grandchildren. That is the stuff Nigerians have come to expect from Ahmed Gulak, Doyin Okupe and Reuben Abati, and, honestl ...

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has sacked his military high command, his spokesman Reuben Abati has said.
Aso Rock is presently under serious heat and it is as a result of the revelation of this Kenyan woman that a lot is going on with Nigeria's money that we Nigerians are not even aware of. Hear what she said below: "Your president (Goodluck Jonathan) visited my country with seven private jets and that's never happened before... This is Nigeria. It's the country with the largest private jets. Seven private jets only. I know there must be more but for us still that was wow. Everybody came in their own jets." Reuben Abati is claiming that all the 7 jets that landed on the said day in Kenya are not people in Jonathan's entourage, but Nigerians know that there are 10 jets in the Presidential Fleet and Jonathan is even trying to buy an additional one for over N1.5billion in 2014. When will people like Reuben Abati working in the Presidency learn to say the truth as it is? help us

Buhari.It is crystal clear that massive dissatisfactions from all over,and the subsequent swimming to safety from this wrecked ship called PDP is sending chills down the spine of the remnants,and the only hope from a hopeless situation is to play the RELIGION game.This is no different from what happened in the past;it started in 2003,and since then the tricks has not change;2015 will be another election year.The idea was to up the ante in early 2014 in preparation for 2015;compounding the volatility,using religion and ethnic ...

Ekiti 2014: Jonathan and my home state – An open letter to the president from Alofe Sunday (Culled from The Dailypost) Mr. President, At this time when everyone is writing you a letter, mine is not to hop on the bandwagon, especially as it relates not with your 2015 ambition. But it would do Nigeria, that is if you really care about her well-being, a whole world of good if you could find time out of your busy schedule to peruse this letter by yourself. Handing this letter to Reuben Abati, Doyin Okupe or Labaran Maku would be tantamount to handing over the Bible to Satan to preach from it. Your Excellency, bearing in mind your busy schedule, I’m going to be brief. The purpose of my letter relates with my home state, Ekiti. In late 2012, I saw something that scared me to the bone. I was lying on my bed, not sleeping when I saw in a trance revolution written as “reVOLUTION”. I sought to know the meaning and the interpretation of all respected men of God consulted tallied.

Both the intelligent and the unintelligent. Even okada drivers have become budget analysts.” Dr. Reuben Abati on SaharaTV. (Somewhere in Oshodi, Lagos. Mid-day. Two okada drivers meet each other as they take a break. ) Driver No1: O’ boy, Happy New Year to you. Driver No2: Happy New Year, my brother. How market? Driver No1: O’boy things dey slow. Since this budget commot, nothing dey move. Driver No2: Which budget? Driver No1: The federal budget. Driver No2: Oh, I never see am. I still dey talk about that huge crocodile captured in Omole Estate. Imagine, the thing spoke to people asking for a human being to eat. Driver No1: Forget that long tori. This budget has better stories inside. Driver No2: You get copy for here? Driver No1: Yeah! (He dips his hand into a goat skin bag attached to the passenger ...
Something is certain though,the likes of Reuben Abati,Ahmed Gulak,Doyin Okupe,and most especially Asari Dokunbo and Edwin Clark et al are only doing damages to whatever remains the sympathy the public have for Jonathan. I wonder if the South-south region or these fools can help Jonathan realise his ambition in 2015 all alone.
I hope Jonathan will not wake up one morning to discover that Madam Peace (Patience Jonathan) has defected to the All Progressives Congress and Reuben Abati and Doyin Okupe abandoned their duty posts to seek political asylum overseas.
Rotimi Amaechi is desperate for power--- (Reuben Abati)---The Nation--- If your paymaster is not desperate, why did he leave teaching to join politics or why did he betray his boss when he was a deputy governor of bayelsa state?
HARDFACTS ; Who is afraid of privatization of refineries? Former TUC PRESIDENT, Peter Esele provides insight and indepth analysis into the issue of ''THE PRIVATISATION OF REFINERIES''. TOPIC: The Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) yesterday said it would privatise the four refineries in the country next year. Last month Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke had told Bloomberg TV Africa London that the country will round off talks on privatizing the four refineries in the first Quarter of 2014. . Ref: Thisday news online…. And now Reuben Abati says FG has no plan of privatizing … who are we to believe? Do you welcome this development? Federal Govt To Privatise Our Refineries: ''for'' Or ''against''??? The Federal Government budgeted about N971billion for subsidy on Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) otherwise called petrol in 2013 while over N635billion has been spent on subsidising kerosene for the last three years. This money would have been spent on other areas of the economy if the r ...
Reuben Abati doing what he knows best. Hear him: “Nigerians are concerned about corruption. [President Jonathan] too is concerned about corruption.” Abati also accused the media of showing support for the opposition, thereby, discarding objective journalism. “The media as we have it in Nigeria today is heavily in the hands of the opposition. Whatever the President says, they twist it,” he said. He also praised Jonathan as the only president that has given Nigerians a road map. “What he (President Jonathan) has been able to do is historic. We have never had a president in Nigeria that presented Nigeria with a road map,” he said. *Well, I hope the media are not twisting his remarks on this one too. But what exactly is this ROAD MAP leading us to actually?*
This is Reuben Abati of those days. The days of political opposition and struggle for good governance. The days when govt are BAD. The days he condemn deregulation strongly. Coming to Abati of today, a man who now believe govt policies are the best. He now attack his fellow comrades who criticise GEJ's administration. He now sees nothing wrong anymore. Its a pity he can't hold back his integrity, honesty and stand.
Just listened to Reuben Abati on Channels TV as he was shamelessly defending the crippled GEJ govt. I was so ashamed that this was the same man I didn't miss his columns on Fridays and Sundays for years in The Guardian. His incisive and objective criticisms adhered him to me but today he's now lost. So sad.

Watching Reuben Abati on Channels TV politics today l laughed and am still laughing. Ђoώ can the spoke person O̶̷̩̥̊͡f No1 person O̶̷̩̥̊͡f Nigeria βε̲̣ talking like this. The Abati l know has really changed. Hmh. I† Į̸̸̨§ obvious that this govt has exhausted all they have. Na wa oh. I still dey laugh.
I remember years back, i used to read Reuben Abati column in the Guardian Newspaper. But watching him speak tonight on Channels TV i feel sad. How time & events changes people. Reuben Abati that used to castigate every former administration in this country now defending the worst administration Nigeria ever has. A case of who pay the piper dictate the tune. But Abati forgot that the piper controls the rhyme of the tune. Abati is someone i respected so much but tonight he has lost my respect. Nobody is to be respected in this country anymore. A case of doing what it takes to grab part of the national cake. Abati is grabbing his own. Why am i even saying this. Didnt thesame thing happen in my local govt INELG. Nigeria is a nation of HYPOCRITICAL CITIZENS. I TRUST PEOPLE BUT CAN NEVER TRUST THE DEVIL INSIDE THEM.
I pity Mr. Reuben Abati. He simply talks out of ignorance. He is too eager to impress his pay master. Kindly watch him make fool of himself on Channels TV.
Hm. .. just wondering what's the worth of Reuben Abati' bank account as compared to when he was with The Guardian Newspaper...
I can see Reuben Abati on Channels TV live struggling to defend Mr. president's achievements in 2013. It's not really easy to lie. I can see him struggling.
Reuben Abati is suffering from a political disease called Megalomania . His principal, Ebele Jonathan is suffering from a serious mental illness called Paranoid delusion . This is the way I see his claim that Jonathan is the only President thas had given Nigeria a road map. Which Map ? Map of Poverty; map of corruption ; map of ineptitude ; map of failure in so many directions. Really, this man Abati does not know anything about Nigeria. He is a big fool.
Reuben Abati, the Presidential spokesperson claimed that the media have been taken over by opposition. What he needs to know is that, the media landscape has widen, with the advent of technology. Nigerians no longer wait for the monotonous NTA or FRCN to come and read a scripted protocol news that is full of commending our extravagant leaders, their wives and cronies. The market place of ideas has been widely open, Nigerians have their voice through the social media. You cannot force them to listen to the "story-story" coming out from the NTA and FRCN. You cannot also force them to believe your lies while in reality they see opposite.

*President Jonathan has brought light to Nigeria says Reuben Abati *President Jonathan has transformed Nigeria to look like London says Doyin Okupe *President Jonathan has provided jobs for 1.6 millions Nigeria youths in 2013 says Okonjo-Iweala
SaharaTV1: "President Jonathan has brought light to Nigeria." Reuben Abati I think Reuben Abati has finally gone mad.
'President Jonathan has brought light into Nigeria' - Reuben Abati Please where is the light? Still searching. Sometimes its best to keep silent than make further fool of yourself! Help me tell Abati!
What is this jargon Dr. Reuben Abati is up to now on media, Why not let someone not in GEJ 's government speak? Who will the houseflies follow? If not the one with wounds! Good government is never in words but in action!
FLASH! "General Olusegun Obasanjo left Nigeria in Darkness and President Jonathan brought Light" Reuben Abati on he is lying through his false teeth!
Goodluck Jonathan and problems he did not create I had the rare privilege, as a 13-year-old many years ago, of witnessing the enormous message-registering power of body language in the humble apartment of a neighbourhood uncle with whom I shared mutual fondness. His “tear-rubber” wife had sauntered into the sitting room while I was savouring the excitement of humour with him. Within 20 seconds, she had recited the line “honey, I’m sure you know I love you” at least three times as she fidgeted in different directions of the room. Then, without minding the little presence disturbing their romantic peace, radiant smile playing suggestively on her face, she lowered her captivating athletic frame onto his laps and delivered the bewitching line “e tie rerin” as she rubbed the glittering wedding ring on her index finger against his tingling nose. Uncle and I understood what she recited in English because we both spoke the language. We also got the music she sang in Yoruba, which meant “you are no ...
So which story do we believe now?, Well will the Kenyan lady say what she did not see?, and am sure Reuben Abati too should know if the President traveled with
