The Ministers Who Must Not Return To Buhari’s Cabinet - Jaafar Jaafar

Apr 28, 2019.

I have not known a Nigerian president who left his cabinet intact, for better or worse, throughout his tenure than President Muhammadu Buhari. He is so allergic to change that he maintained the portfolio of the ministers for nearly four years.

The best sinecure in the world, editorial board of Guinness World Records will agree with me, is the Buhari cabinet job. No assessment, no sack, no queries and, of course, no worries.

Kashim:A War Time Master Builder And A Pillar Of Modern Borno

A few people in the North are conversant with the legend of the master builder - Muhammadu Durugu, known as Babban Gwani, who was the greatest builder and sculptor in the north. He built virtually all the Emirs' palaces in the north, with their artistic designs that adorned the entrance and the main Emir's palace. Infact, he was killed because of his art, so that he would not replicate the beauties he produced in other lands.

6 Days And A Night In The Hand Of Kidnappers: My Encounter V — Buhari A. Sa'ee

The breakfast is done and I was eager to be served and finish eating. Let my name be called. Let someone tell me to get ready. At this moment, me and Rev. Father have since began talking to become friends on different social media platforms. He told me the name he's using on Facebook which I promised to search, send my request and inbox him my digits as soon as possible. We began orchestrating how it's going to be while we are out. If it's dark, he's going to give me a place to sleep and leave early in the morning. Rev. Father was one of the best people I've seen in my life.

6 Days And A Night In The Hand Of Kidnappers: My Encounter IV — Buhari A. Sa'ee

DAY 4
(Monday 8th April, 2019)

But wait, Aliyu's rescuer was expected to either send someone or bring the ransom himself yesterday but he didn't! That alone, it led to a serious trouble for Aliyu. He's been treated as someone who's been lying all through. Couldn't his situation be well understood having narrated his own ordeal as someone who has no blood relative(s) to help him out and was in fact testified by his so-called rescuer?

6 Days And A Night In The Hand Of Kidnappers: My Encounter III — Buhari A. Sa'ee

It was our first day but the level of commitment shown by other victims in calling their families/rescuers couldn't be overemphasized. So we had to emulate from it. Because it is either they have gone through whole lot of torture and change of camp(s) or they have possibly seen so many terrible things and are scared to add a day in the forest. Yes, if you overstayed in a particular camp because your family couldn't meet the required price, they'd take you to another camp, more tougher than the previous one because they have many camps in the forest.

6 Days And A Night In The Hand Of Kidnappers: My Encounter II — Buhari A. Sa'ee

In my previous narration, I am sure someone would perhaps want to know how I slept and woke up the next day in the forest especially being someone who has never experienced such a traumatic episode in his life before. Well, when I put my head on the ground attempting to sleep, despite the cut on my foot which was real and deep, I had so many scary things in my mind but in the end I just had to console and convince myself that I was dreaming. Yes, you heard me right. Dreaming! And would definitely see myself at home the next morning.

6 Days And A Night In The Hand Of Kidnappers: My Encounter I — Buhari A. Sa'ee

(It was Thursday 4th, April 2019 @6:50pm)

I think taking us back to how the journey began isn't that necessary but the narration of my encounter with the kidnappers which took place at around 6:50pm of Thursday 4th April, 2019. Your guess is as good as mine being someone who has never experienced it. Yes, it was highly chaotic and the aftermath is psychologically traumatic.
