Great Leaders Read Books, Our President Reads Cartoons In Newspaper - Reno Omokri

President Muhammadu Buhari
Former aide to the former president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has attacked the presidency over its comments on the arrested man who named his dog Buhari.

Recall that the presidency in reaction to the man’s arrest and subsequent appearance in court had said the President loves caricature noting that the cartoon section of the newspapers were the president’s favourite part.

In reaction to the reply, Reno Omokri took to his twitter page to attack the president’s reading skills and habit as he linked his interest in cartoon to the current economic situations facing the country.

Driving home his point, he mentioned that other great leaders have great repository of photos to back their reading habits up but Buhari has none even on the world’s most popular internet search engine.

See his tweet below:
More on the #CartoonLovingPresident and why the economy is in the state it is in!

FRSC Set To Ban The Use Of Substandard Tyre Sealing Paste And Gum By Vulcanizers

The FRSC claims about 5,000 lives have been lost on Nigerian roads due to tyre burst from 2010 till date. This has necessitated them to intensify the effort on sensitization programmes and ultimate ban of the use of food-based and substandard sealing pastes mostly used by Vulcanizers to fix tyres across the country.

The Corps Marshal - Boboye Oyeyemi’s interest to intensify this sensitization and enforcement campaign is further reinforced by the House of Representatives’ Resolution (HR.65/2016) to curb the influx of substandard tyres, non-lubricant rims and fake tyre sealing pastes, as well as the use of food-based products on tyres by vulcanizers.

According to him, the Corps Marshal has stressed that Vulcanizers are culpable for the way and manner they improperly handle tyres during repairs, he added that the dangerous practice of engaging fake sealing pastes is capable of causing rusts on rims as well as wears on tyres.

He already met with The Vulcanizers’ Association to intimate them of their inappropriate and dangerous conducts.

PHOTOS: Black Schoolgirls In South Africa Protest After Being Told To Straighten Their Hair

Pretoria Girls High School is facing a furious backlash after instructing black school pupils to straighten their hair. Black school girls claim that they have been subjected to racism and that their blackness has been discouraged. They added that school rules forbid African hairstyles such as afro, Bantu knots, dreadlocks and braids.

#StopRacismAtPretoriaGirlsHigh is currently trending in South Africa. Videos and photos of pupils protesting at the school, one of them sporting an afro, went viral over the weekend

A petition STOP RACISM AT PRETORIA GIRLS HIGH which has over 9,889 signatures so far, has been set up asking the authorities to investigate the school. Part of the petition read:
"Learners at Pretoria High school are demanding that racist practices at the school are brought to an end. Girls attending the school have been forced to straighten their hair; are accused of conspiring when standing in groups and face other intolerable comments and actions"
The Gauteng Department of Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi arrived at Pretoria High School for Girls on Monday to investigate racism allegations by its black learners. He is currently in a meeting with parents, management as well as the school principal Karen Du Toit.

Spokesperson, Elijah Mhlanga told DRUM that it is too soon to determine what action will be taken against whom at the school if the girls’ concerns are valid.
"I can’t have a blanket solution for every time there is an outburst of racism at a school because each case is unique," he says. "We want to know what is going on here before we can make a comment"
The girls also claim they are not allowed to speak their mother tongue and that a teacher called them monkeys when they were singing and chanting in class.

Meanwhile, the situation at the school has escalted with political youth movement gathering outside the main gate. Members of SASCO,COSAS, the African National Congress Youth League and Economic Freedom Fighters tried to force their way into the school premises after the school's management barred parents from coming in to fetch their children.
