“Asta Got millions Of Different Currencies From Officers Seeking Transfers, Promotions”

Allegations and counter allegations are being made against the immediate past Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris on the premise that he used his last wife, Asta Idris to siphon money belonging to the Nigeria Police.

It will be recalled that shortly after he assumed duty as the number one police officer in the country in 2016, Ibrahim Idirs reportedly claimed that his predecessor, Mr. Solomon Arase went away with lots of vehicles belonging to the force.

But sources revealed that whatever Arase did as I.G was a child’s play compared to Ibrahim Idris’ alleged sleaze as the number one police officer in the country.

We were informed that the allegations against Ibrahim Idris were so damning that the present Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar Adamu reportedly ordered a probe into the financial dealings of his immediate predecessor.

We gathered that the probe report met a huge amount of money running into billions of naira and millions of dollars and other currencies in the bank accounts of his wife, Asta Idris.

Idris was said to be formerly married to the daughter of the very influential Etsu Nupe.

It was gathered that Idris settled down with the daughter of the Emir of Nupe after many marriages.

We learned that Idris started dating Asta, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, described as a very smart lady shortly before he was elevated to the position of Inspector General of the Nigeria Police Force and that he later divorced his wife and settled down with the woman.

Sources alleged that Asta took over the affairs of the police force codedly immediately she married idris and rumours started circulating as to how she  was getting proceeds from senior officers of the force to remain in the good books of the police boss.

We were told that Asta was indirectly in-charge of deployment which made  officers struggled to impress her so that she could facilitate their deployment to juicy positions and that she was rewarded with huge amount of money that were allegedly deposited into her accounts.

“On leaving office, the present I.G, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar Adamu, who was inundated with complaints and petitions on the posting of senior and junior personnels called for investigations” said an insider

We were told that in the process, the bank account of Asta in Guaranty Trust Bank and other financial institutions were allegedly discovered to have been loaded with millions of different currencies and it was alleged that junior and senior officers funded the accounts either for promotion or to maintain their positions.

State of the art cars, mansions and shopping complexes were said to have also been traced to Asta’s name, as the insider put it, “what was discovered is unimaginable considering the short time the former I.G spent in office.

The source further confided in us that the amount of rots discovered by the new inspector general would take the force nothing less than twenty years to recover from.

The couple, idris and asta also allegedly employed questionable characters to superintendent over critical activities of the force in guise of being consultants

We were told that those loyal to the embattled ex inspector general, Ibrahim Idris have started making efforts to appease the present Inspector general.

The Kaduna State-born lady was alleged to have dated several officers before she finally settled down with the ex-I.G she is said to be a trained pilot.

With the way things are, sources maintained that nemesis might soon catch up with Asta and her husband, Ibrahim Idris as it was alleged that “they have loads of skeletons in their cupboards too numerous to suppress. “

We sent a text to Asta regarding these severe allegations and she called us promising to call back as soon as she consults with her hubby which she never did.

Exclusive: Details Of Bola Tinubu’s 2023 Mother Of All Presidential Campaign

Published

on

  • “He Will Win APC Primaries Unopposed”

While tongues are wagging over the timing of a subtle campaign for the 2023 presidential election by the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, there are reports that the campaign is just about to begin in full.

Sources within the camp of the sensational and celebrated politician revealed that Tinubu is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that he takes over power from the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023, when he must have completed his second term in office.

“#IstandwithAsiwajuBolaAhmedTinibuforNigeriaPresident2023” campaign appeared to have gained much popularity with members of the party going round the country to convince the people on the need to support Tinubu as the next President of Nigeria.

We were informed that leaders of the APC, including the National Chairman of the Party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole are in support of Tinubu’s candidature because “he is full of ideas that can move the nation forward.” Tinubu’s profile were reeled out as the reason for pushing him forward as the next President of Nigeria from 2023.

Some watchers of events recalled that from his southwest base, Tinubu has handpicked governors, ministers, senators, a president and a vice president.

“He has also sacked governors, a party chairman, a president, a senate president, annihilated political opponents, ended careers of those who wouldn’t do his bidding and made Nigeria’s commercial capital city of Lagos his own–all on a whim.

“His Bourdillon Lagos address often mills with party faithful and hangers-on looking for favors. “No politician wields as much influence as Tinubu does today. He may be looking at wielding all of that influence from the center,” they said.

It will be recalled that, when APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, was asked about the posters of Tinubu for President, he didn’t rule out a Tinubu presidential run. He only said it wasn’t time to discuss the subject.

“So, I stand here as National Chairman of APC not only to deny those posters as they affect me but to deny those posters as they affect any leader of our party because it is not yet time.

“At this point in time, all hands must be on deck to support President Muhammadu Buhari and all our state governors in their respective states to work together unanimously to deliver for the good of our people in the states and at the federal level,” Oshiomhole said.

It is also worthy of note that Tinubu has not ruled out a presidential run in 2023 or denied the posters. The voices of some APC chieftains have even confirmed that Tinubu’s is preparing for the election:

“Bola Tinubu will make a good president. Other issues notwithstanding, Tinubu will make a good modern president because the presidency these days is scientific. Nigerians, by convention, seem to have agreed that there should be rotation of the presidency.”

Babachir Lawal

Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal.
“In the South-West today, the tallest person politically can’t be better than Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, so I will encourage and plead with him to run for the office of president. I know his antecedents, I know his pedigree and I know he can run the affairs of Nigeria effectively and smoothly. Look at the financial engineering foundation he laid for Lagos State, which explains why governors that came after him found it easy to run the affairs of the state.”

“Tinubu is the most prominent Yoruba person that has paid his dues and is knowledgeable about the politics of Nigeria. I am confident he can lead Nigeria well if he becomes president.”

-Former Minister of Works, Adeseye Ogunlewe
It was gathered that the southwest APC is positioning itself for the presidency in 2023 based on a rotational arrangement in the polity.

“At the moment, only Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and of course Tinubu, look like they want the job when it makes its way down south.

“And everyone knows that Osinbajo defers to Tinubu on all matters politics. If Tinubu wants the job, best believe Osinbajo would be stepping aside for ‘Oga’ to have a go.

“Those who say Tinubu should be content with playing the statesman or godfather role for the remainder of his years, appear to have forgotten that Tinubu schemed to be Buhari’s running mate before the 2015 presidential vote,” said a source.

Those close to the strong man of Nigerian politics revealed that it is certain that everyone would yield to him as he has paid his dues over the years and that it is now pay back time for Tinubu to reap the fruits of his labour and go to the central to control the affairs of the country.

“To state that Tinubu is great is to state the obvious, he is the greatest living Nigerian politician. He has paid his dues over the years and we are all ready to support him.

“If it is money, the resources are there for this man of means and character and I can tell you that we are ready for the candidates of other political parties, Tinubu will defeat all of them,” said a chieftain of the APC, who added that the issue of APC primaries is a forgone conclusion, “Tinubu will win unopposed.”

Pressure Mounts On VP, Yemi Osinbajo To Change Deputy Chief of Staff, Ade Ipaye + Inside Details Of The Latest Scheming

Published

on


This is coming days after news filtered to town that some of the aides of the VP were sacked by the presidency.

Sources within the seat of power in Abuja revealed authoritatively that it is a matter of days before the lawyer-turned-politician, Ade Ipaye would be shown the way out of office to give room for some other fellow with much influence and who could get things done in time.

It was argued that Ade Ipaye has not been able to manage the office effectively and that this has not helped the Vice President, who we gathered needed to do more to prove that he could quickly get things done for the government.

We gathered that Senator Tokunbo Afikuyomi was initially suggested as the Deputy Chief of Staff in the Preaidency attached to the Vice President in 2015 based on his vast network of friends and associates before Ade Ipaye, who was a commissioner in Lagos State, was eventually picked.

Afikuyomi reportedly became influential right from the days of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and the National Republic Convention (NRC) and he is seen as a necessary evil.

He was also said to be close to the likes of Baba Gana Kingibe and Alhaji Maman Daura.

“Tokunbo Afikuyomi is close to the creme of northern politicians now seen as the cabal and he could leverage on this for Osinbajo who is not a politician,” said a source, who added that some other people were being considered for the plum job, but that Afikuyomi’s name tops the list.

We were further informed that the Ikenne, Ogun State-born Vice President is allegedly favouring only members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God including the immediate past Minister of Trade and Investment, Mr. Tony Enelamah, in appointments in the seat of power.

He was also accused of favouring his family members, who never contributed to the success of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in his appointments including the Chief Executive Officer of the Nigeria Export Promotion Council (NEPC), Mr. Segun Awolowo.

Sources alleged that despite the fact that Segun Awolowo was not appointed by the current government he ought to have been removed, when his tenure ended, but that he is enjoying the favour of the Vice President, who married a grand daughter of the Awolowos.

Sources alleged that the fact that a large percentage of the aides of the VP are either members of the RCCG or members of his family has become a source of concern to the cabal in Aso Rock.

First Weekly Magazine was informed that Osinbajo did not show any form of commitment to those who sponsored him, which sources said was part of the reasons he wasn’t given any consideration in the scheme of things in Lagos.

It was learned that the godfathers of Lagos politics felt disappointed by Osinbajo since he got to office in 2015 and that they have vowed to take a pound of flesh from him.

“Osinbajo belongs to Lagos political circle. But the leaders of the party in the state are not happy with him because he has not done much for them since he got into office.

“He is completely lost in what he is doing in Abuja and he has not addressed any of the issues we took to him that is why we do not reckon with him in the state,” said a source.

The source added that the leaders of the party in Lagos have made Osinbajo to understand that he still had enough time to amend his ways “before it is too late as time is no longer on his side. 2023 is just around the corner, when his tenure as the nation’s Vice President would end.”
