A man from Julia Local Government Area of Katsina State, Yahuza Ibrahim, popular known as Niga, has renamed his six-year-old daughter, whom he named after President Muhammadu Buhari, from ‘Buhariyya’ to ‘Kausar’.

The renaming ceremony which was held on Friday in Jibia town had the presence of many people.

Ibrahim when asked why he renamed his daughter said the failure of President Buhari’s administration to fulfil all campaign promises.

When asked if the motive behind renaming his daughter, he claimed that failure to fulfil all campaign promises made by the Buhari-led administration under All Progressives Congress, (APC), from 2015 to date was the sole reason for his action.

Yahuza Ibrahim was quoted as saying, “I was a diehard fan of President Muhammadu Buhari before and after he won the 2015 election; because of his honesty and integrity. To strengthen the love I have for him, I made a promise that whenever my wife safely delivers; I will name the child after Buhari if he is a boy, but if she is a girl; she will be called Buhariyya.

“I have fulfilled my promise when my wife eventually delivered a bouncing baby girl in 2015; by naming the newborn as Buhariyya”.

He noted that there is nothing to write home about in the country despite six years of Buhari’s leadership.

Yahuza Ibrahim also claimed that he delayed enrolling his daughter into public primary school; due to the plan he has of changing his daughter’s name to Kausar.

Biafra, officially the Republic of Biafra, was a secessionist state in West Africa that separated from Nigeria and existed from May 1967 to January 1970.

Over the years, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have continued to advocate for the secession of the Igbo-populated Southeast zone, by demanding a referendum from the federal government and going public with calls for the creation of a sovereign Biafra nation.

Why I Want To Be Next APC National Chairman – Ali Modu Sheriff

Published

on

A former Governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has revealed why he wants to become the next national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Naija News reports that the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee led by Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni is yet to fix a date for the national convention where new National Working Committee (NWC) members would be elected.

Speaking on Wednesday in Abakaliki, when he visited Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state, Sheriff said he wants to unite the party if allowed to be the APC national chairman.



He stated that as a former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he has all the experience needed to succeed.

The former governor disclosed that he was in the state to consult with the governor because of his influence in the South East and among his colleagues.

Sheriff commended Umahi for his “giant strides” across all sectors in the state and urged him to keep up the good work.

He added that the APC is proud of his achievements in the state, adding that the two strongest states in the Southeast are APC states.

“You are very influential in APC and your fellow governors and leaders across the country rate you highly for your infrastructural strides, among other achievements.

“The only two strongest states in Southeastern Nigeria are APC states. With what I have seen, I can now tell people to visit Ebonyi State, this is because you have made APC governors proud,” he said.

Speaking further, Sheriff said the next president can come from any part of the country, adding that Buhari should be supported to complete his tenure.

“It is, however, not the time to talk about the next president because an incumbent is still in office and should be supported to accomplish his goals,” he said.
