Court dismisses case against man who named his dog Buhari
Nigerian court has struck out a criminal case against a man who named his dog after President Muhammadu Buhari, his lawyer said on Wednesday.

Joachim Iroko Chinakwe has been standing trial since August last year in Ota, south-west Nigeria, and admitted naming his pet in honour of the head of state.

But his lawyer Ebun-Ola Adegboruwa told AFP: “When the case came up for hearing on Tuesday, the chief magistrate was angry because of the absence of the prosecuting police officer without notice.

“The court also noted the unseriousness of the prosecution and therefore granted the prayer (plea) of the defence counsel to strike out the case for lack of diligent prosecution.”

Police had accused textile trader Chinakwe, a southern Christian, of conducting himself in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace as the president was a northern Muslim.

Religion is a constant source of tension in Nigeria and frequently boils over into violence.

Chinakwe has denied disrespect, saying in September last year he had “great love and admiration” for the 74-year-old former military ruler.

He also revealed he had named his daughter Aisha, after Buhari’s second wife “to further demonstrate my love for the Buhari family”.

Why the man in Aso Rock is not Buhari – Ex-APC spokesperson, Abdullahi

Former National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bolaji Abdullahi, has shared his reasons the Muhammadu Buhari Nigerians voted into power in 2015 is not the same President at Aso Rock today.

Abdullahi, who was part of the mass defection from the ruling party, called on Nigerians to jump out of Buhari’s train, adding that the man presiding over the affairs of the nation today was not the leader Nigerians trooped out enmasse to elect in 2015.

He said this Monday in a chat with Vanguard in reaction to the vote of no confidence passed on President Buhari on Sunday by leaders of the Northern Elders’ Forum.

The Director, Communications and Strategies of the PDP, Presidential Campaign Organisation pointed out that he was not joining the cloning debate, but insisted however, that Buhari had dumped the principles for which he was widely adored.

He said, “Some of us risked our political careers to rally round Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 and today we have realised that we are in a one-chance vehicle. But I say that having realized where we are, it is time to get down from that one-chance vehicle.

“The Northern Elders Forum was one of the strongest supporters of Buhari in 2015 but they have now realised that the Buhari we have today is the not the Buhari they voted for in 2015.

“The Buhari most of us risked our political careers for was the Buhari whose memory we carried with us since 1983. That Buhari had zero tolerance for corruption and was a strong -willed leader.

“But the Buhari of today has been receiving corrupt people into his party who are hoping he will give them cover. Today, the position of the Northern Elders Forum has vindicated some of us who saw the wisdom in leaving the party (APC) to join the crusade to rescue Nigeria.”
