AMINU WAZIRI TAMBUWAL’S DEFECTION AND THE QUESTION OF MORALITY
Friday, 07 November 2014

In one of my earlier comments in relation to this whining news of Aminu Waziri Tambawal’s defection, this is how I summarised the development:

His defection is regrettable - because it places him at par with other none ideological and unprincipled politicians - but it also highlights the level of intolerance and anti democratic forces bedevilling PDP. I have always insisted that we do not have political parties in Nigeria which you can ascribe any kind of ideology to. What we have, at best, can be regarded as political groups”.

the young cream of politicians you get in the lower house.

His defection is regrettable - because it places him at par with other none ideological and unprincipled politicians - but it also highlights the level of intolerance and anti democratic forces bedevilling PDP.

Friday, 17 July 2009

ImageThe Hisbah board in Kano has destroyed thirteen truckloads of assorted alcoholic drinks consisting of 7280 cartoons and 1002 bottles of different brands of beer.

The drinks are accumulated confiscation made by the Shari’a enforcing agency over the last three months in the state. This is following the outlawed distribution and sale of beer in the state based on the reintroduction of the Shari’a legal code.

 

During the ceremony held in Kano city, the Deputy Commander General of Hisbah in charge of special service, Mallam Ali Aliyu Abubakar said the feat was achieved through the close vigilance on vehicles coming to the state by his men.

He said, with intense surveillance, the Hisbah corps are giving a tough time for deviant beer sellers who want to sneak with the outlawed product to the state through any available means. The deputy commander, explained that the distributors have now schemed a new way of smuggling beer to the state to beat the agency.

Speaking during the event, Commander General of the Hisbah guards, Malam Ibrahim Muazzam Maibushira disclosed that thousands of beer cartoons were confiscated by the Hisbah corps in compliance of ban on alcohol in the state maintaining that most have been presented for judgment while thousand bottles were destroyed in similar operations.

The drinks were crushed by a heavy-duty caterpillar.
