SHAMEFUL DENIAL: WE STAND BY OUR STORY THAT THE MD OF JUBILEE SYRINGE FACTORY IN AKWA IBOM FORCE WORKERS TO WORSHIP MOSQUE AND WORK ON SUNDAYS

Secret Reporters

Our attention was drawn to a publication where the Managing Director of Jubilee Syringe Factory Mr Zubeyir Gulabi, located in the Governor’s village, Onna denied Secret Reporters publication, where we stated that he forces his workers who are mainly of the Christian faith to worship in Mosque on Sundays.

While we observe the right of the company to issue a denial to our report, we state emphatically that we stand by the story and maintain that he forces his workers to worship in the mosque.

For the records, Secret Reporters never knew that there was a mosque in Onna, apart from the one in Uyo and couldn’t have reported what does not exist. We did not also report that there exists a mosque inside the factory, but maintained that they are compelled to worship in the mosque. As a medium known for credibility and accuracy, with access to sources within and outside Akwa Ibom States, this is one of such stories we are proud to stand by.

Of a truth, not only does the factory MD force them to worship in mosque against their belief, but also tasks them to work on Sundays against the rules of engagement that employed them, a fact which the MD agreed to. Even though he claimed that it was just for training. Who goes for training on Worship days? Why was it not done on Fridays that the muslims in the factory conduct their worship? Secret Reporters stands by its earlier story of http://secretsreporter.com/cow-governor-sharia-takes-akwa-ibom-gov-udom-syringe-factory-md-gulabi-forces-workers-go-mosque-work-sundays/.

Indeed, this is not the only atrocity happening in the syringe factory, as our sources within have revealed more.

CORRUPTION METAMORPHOSIS: MORE CORRUPTION EXPOSED AT NATIONAL HAJJ COMMISSION OF NIGERIA (NAHCON).

Secret Reporters

Hajj in Nigeria is now seen as an arable pasture where corruption is harvested in basketfuls. It appears here that corruption has penetrated all nooks and crannies of Nigeria, and not even an innermost corner is free. This is sequel to the Hajj report published last week by Secret Reporters where the First Lady of Bauchi state used the Hajj Pilgrimage in siphoning funds.

A source at the CUPS contacted Secret Reporters on the recent corruption development going on in the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON).

Here, he revealed that on Tuesday, 2/5/2015, the former President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, forwarded to the Senate for approval, the name of Alhaji Abdullahi Mukhtar Mohammad, as the new chairman of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON).

It can be authoritatively stated here that- since his assumption of office, Alhaji Abdullahi Mukhtar Muhammad has embarked on massive fraudulent activities, defrauding NAHCON of billions of Naira every year. Unfortunately, he has been doing so with impunity, until now.

‘’According to leaked information released to CUPS from ICPC files, NAHCON charges every pilgrim from Nigeria some N5,000, which is called “development levy”,’’ Stated Dr. Ahmed.

‘’The so called development levy is meant to be used for the maintenance of pilgrims’ camps and departure centres in Nigeria. Unfortunately, nobody knows what has been happening to this substantial amount of money, as it is NOT accounted for in HANCON account books.’’

‘’When one calculates the number of pilgrims that have been charged this fraudulent levy from 2014 when it started, to 2017, the amount accrues to over N5 billion!’’

‘’Furthermore, the leaked ICPC documents showed that there is massive fraud perpetrated by Alhaji Abdullahi Mukhtar Muhammad, in relation to securing pilgrims’ accommodation in Mina, Saudi Arabai.’’

‘’Before the commencement of Hajj rituals, 95 percent of Nigerian pilgrims go to Medina directly after staying in Mina briefly. The leaked ICPC document alleges that only 5% of our pilgrims go to Mina to stay, and that happens only after they have concluded their Arafat rituals.

So, the empty houses paid for by Nigerian pilgrims are rented out by Alhaji Abdullahi Mukhtar to pilgrims of other countries. The ICPC leaked document alleges that over 300,000 Saudi Riyals were generated from this fraudulent exercise. And the money has not been accounted for in NAHCON books!’’

Whilst speaking again on the issue, Dr. Idris Ahmed said, ‘’Fellow compatriots, the CUPS organisation will keep exposing the financial crimes of Alhaji Abdullahi Mukhtar, until he is made to face the full wrath of the law.’’

ZOO NATION: NIGERIA GOVERNMENT BANS NTA STAFF FROM SOCIAL MEDIA AND UTTERING EVEN A WORD ON POLITICAL AND SOCIAL MATTER IN THE COUNTRY

Secret Reporters

Workers in Nigerian Government-administered Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) have decried a recent ban prohibiting them from expressing political opinions on social networking sites.

Under a new order contained in a circular issued on Monday 15th January 2018 and obtained by Secret Reporters, the NTA Director General, Mr Yakubu Mohammed mandated the Zonal Directors, Rector TV college, General Managers, Officers-in-charge, and Community Stations to instruct staff in their stations to henceforth desist from making or engaging in any publication on social media as recent activities regarding such has been deemed to be prejudicial to the government of the day by the Board of Management.

Secret Reporters also learnt that the African Largest Television Network with its large workforce spreading across the states of the country, were also warned against taking part in political discussions or criticising the government’s policies and it’s even a taboo to ‘like’ any post that criticizes the Federal Government. The ban we gathered from some NTA staff will mean workers submitting their passwords of social media networks to the authority for routine check of their posts.

“Please note that any member of staff caught in this fast spreading serious act of misconduct, will be made to face the consequences of his/her action in line with civil service rules.” – The circular reads.

Violators of the order risk being hit by a number of legal punishments, including early retirement, demotion, disciplinary action, and even termination of service.

A staff of the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) who claims anonymity confided in our reporter about what he termed as an “attack on freedom of expression” and demanded an urgent action by the National Assembly to address the clampdown.

“This is suppressing the voices, it means even if we have problems and issues about the government of the day, we cannot speak about them,” he said, adding that the order is against their fundamental rights both as NTA employees and citizens of the country.
