The pastor who was the vice-presidential candidate with President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2011 presidential elections, said he would continue to pray for the day when every Nigerian would come out and make their votes count.

He urged Nigerians not to allow themselves to be deceived by ‘stomach infrastructure’ when the needed infrastructure in their communities had decayed.
Also, he said in an interview published last January 3 at Calgary, Canada, predicted he would succeed Buhari as Nigeria’s 16th president or head of state.

9th Senate Will Confims EFCC Chairman, Magu

The NIGERIA NEWS gathered through a source who wants to remain anonymous that the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, who was appointed on 9th November 2015 following the sack of the chairman Ibrahim Lamorde by President Mohammadu Buhari. The source insinuates that the 9th Senate will confirm Magu as the EFCC chairman.

Although he was appointed a long time ago by the President the 8th Senate has not confirmed him. Since the tenure of the 8th senate would elapse soon, it is, therefore, relative that it’s the 9th senate that would confirm his chairmanship of the EFCC.

Magu is a commissioner who graduated from Ahmadu Bello University. Magu was promoted on 28th April 2018 from the post of deputy commissioner to Commissioner.

The confirmation of Magu as the EFCC chairman has been a controversy for the President Mohammadu Buhari administration.

See How Much Nigerian Girls Are Being Sold For As Prostitutes In Foreign Countries

The Nigerian girls are reportedly used for sex slaves in Mali and the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, NAPTIP has intervened to curb the act, not only in Mali but in other West African Countries, NIGERIA NEWS reports.

Julie Okah-Donli, the Director General of NAPTIP brief on Saturday at ECOWAS Parliament meeting that Nigerian girls are being sold for an amount ranging from 210,000 naira and 240,000 naira in order to be used for prostitution.

The girls sold would then be given target to remit sum ranging from 1.08 million naira to 1.2 million naira to their owners which are usually called ‘Madam’, giving them an ultimatum to complete the payment within 8 months to the time they were sold and started to work.

The Director-General shed more light on the matter that the girl that could meet up with the target would be freed and she as well would become the ‘Madam’, and in the same manner as their madam did to them, they would also do the same thing and in that way, prostitution is turned into business which keeps on evolving.

Mrs. Julie gives an account on the matter, stating the number of the people who fall victim of such an act. The report states below:

“There are more than one million Nigerians residing in Mali. About 20,000 of these Nigerians are girls believed to be victims of trafficking and the number increases by 50 per day.

“Many victims are deceived to leave their livelihoods in Nigeria for greener pastures in ‘Mali.

“Some of the victims are abducted from Nigeria, including those that arrive in school uniforms.

“On arrival at the border town between Burkina Faso and Mali, many of the girls are sold off for CFA 350,000 to 400,000; their new owners then make them pay back about CFA 1.6 million to CFA 2 million with one CFA being 0.6 Naira,”.

Mrs. Julie recommends the introduction of Memorandum of Understanding, MoU between Nigeria and Senegal, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, and the Benin Republic. Not only the MoU but the parks in which the girls were being transported should be effectively scrutinized and any caught in the act should face the applicable judgment.

Mrs. Julie further added as quoted below that:

“There is a need for comprehensive sensitization of rescued victims before repatriation and a comprehensive blueprint worked out for tracing, empowerment, and rehabilitation of victims,”.

“The Malian authorities collect taxes from the victims on a weekly basis and sell condoms and other medications compulsorily to their victims every month.

“Malian women are already grumbling that Nigerian girls are taking their men, and there are fears of imminent xenophobic attacks.

“Three Nigerian girls were killed between November and December 2018,’’ stated by Mrs. Julie.

She stated that the border has not been in any way sanitized as quoted below:

“The border point between Nigeria and Seme-Krake and Burma Fas/Mali are notoriously porous, and despite numerous reports and pictures of traffickers sent to law enforcement agencies at the borders, no arrests or rescues have been made.

“The traffic madams are well known to the Nigerian community but they are afraid to report them because of the complicity of the Malian security agencies in human trafficking, especially the gendarmerie who assist the traffickers to carry out their activities.

“Nigerian victims are way-billed from a motor-park in Cotonou, dropped at Sikasso near the border with Burkina Faso, from where they are picked by Malian gendarmerie for delivery to their madams,”

Mrs. Julie, however, added that the girls used for prostitute are of age 16 to 30 in which their clients get hook up with them at a night club and sleep with them in a hut. The settlement is said to be 300 in number inside a bush in Mali and each of the settlement can contain between 100 to 150 girls.

The Minister of Justice in Mali has been seen in other to curb this act. The meeting with the Minister was positive as an association of the Malian ministry and NAPTIP is called upon to make an MoU in order to stop the human trafficking and fix back the victim to their various places.
