SeCRAP, you are doing 'extremely' well. 7 cases out of 125 you promised us is not a pass mark but it is a start. All the cases are your suits against FGN. May we take it that it is only you that FGN ignores? That speaks volumes. Also most of what you asked is in public domain/
On 29 October 2019 the Asset Tracing, Recovery and Management Regulations 2019 – which were issued by the federal attorney general on 24 October 2019 – came into effect. They replaced the existing Proceeds of Crime Regulation 2012, with effect from 31 October 2019./
This is one of the reasons why I am not part of the bandwagon to give Malami accolades he does not deserve. When you file your nuisance and vexatious cases and they are not robustly nipped in the bud by the AGF, then you begin to acquire undeserved clout. In one of your 'success'
cases, you asked a court to compel the FGN to prosecute people (you called them rogue DISCOs) and Malami allowed you to even get a word in up to the point of getting an order of court? How do you ask Government to prosecute people it agreed (GEJ) to even compensate if they failed
I also asked you for the position of all the cases on appeal? I am hoping these 7 cases are going to metamorphous into 125 cases & that you will showcase human rights abuse cases you alleged. I give you these inane 7 & count them as plus to you, but on my side, I have 118 credit

1. Patriots, we got our noses bloodied in Edo and for the light of me, I can't even claim genuine sadness. From the onset my views were and remain clear. As the battle between Osiomole & Obaseki raged, we pleaded that they make up and find a way to work together for APC's sake/
2. The two continued on a campaign of calumny till the outcome became POI against Obaseki. That outcome was sad for me on two fronts. I wanted Obaseki to do his fight honourably and use another platform other than PDP. So for me, I engaged in "siddon" look. Well, the people have
3. spoken and loudly too. They want Obaseki no matter from which party. I am not an inner core APC so I don't know what are the politics that are playing out but one thing I can recognise is that what we have in Nigeria is "transactional" politics and not politics of ideology/

1. The greatest problem in Nigeria IMO stems from an educational system that fails to produce logical minded people. A critical mass of people find it difficult to understand how a conclusion is reached from a logical sequence of major to minor premises./
2. Many can't spot fallacy in their own or other people'd arguments. A fallacy is "a mistaken belief, especially one based on unsound argument". Being able to detect & avoid fallacies is criteria of good reasoning. Knowing fallacies is needed to arm us against the most enticing/
3. missteps we might take with arguments. Philosophers of old like Aristotle, Richard Whately & John Stuart Mill invested energy in teaching us how to become logicians-to reason in a logical manner, but alas, this Logic is not in our curriculum & this has been a detriment/

1. Morning friends. On this CAMA Act, I finally have to agree with myself that we have a critical mass of Nigerians that are "upside down" thinkers & this cohort is led sadly by people who ought to know better. I took a look at the website of @SERAPNigeria and the roll call ehn/
2. The roll call is full of lawyers. The known ones o...the Human Rights SANs. The founder is a lawyer, the Board of Advisers of whatever have many lawyers (many of them I know very very well). . First that website is a jumble of confusion. I am not sure/
that SECRAP actually knows what it is all about. They are like a bull in a china shop-their horns are just out marauding & causing all sorts of confusion. Now follow my logic a bit:
CAMA is passed into Law by @nassnigeria. It is an amendment of an Act that has existed since 2004/

1. I am actually neanderthal on this app. Many people on this app are so young and while many seek to learn and have a teachable spirit, many don't want to learn at all & this last group can be so irksome. Please understand that what has been introduced into the CAMA is normal/
2. Churches and Islamic Organisations like NASFAT etc are all Incorporated Trustees. They have always been subject to regulation under the old CAMA. They submit their Constitutions to CAMA and these govern them. What is contained in their Constitution is also prescribed by CAMA/
3. However, over the years, CAMA stopped asking questions, and Incorporated Trustees including NGOs started going rogue. Let us look at it this way: If no one scrutinises my audited account, as an NGO, why will I present credible results. As an Incorporated Trustee, all the .../

1. I am always scared of the power that is in the hands of the arrogantly ignorant. The fascination for mischief & the allure for confusion. But I refuse to allow you do this mischief. Your thread is total rubbish @ChiefOjukwu please note. Let me educate the public through you/
2. S.705 of the new CAMA you take umbrage to deals with Companies that are Insolvent and describes the practitioners (different professionals) that can legally act as liquidators. This has always been the law -that not anybody can act as liquidator. The Act then recognises the/

1. My kid sister arrived from the US about 3 weeks ago. She had been stuck in the US on account of COVID. I was a bit upset that she had seemingly ignored me since returning to Nigeria, but she then told me that @NCDCgov had had her under quarantine since returning. She was/
2. She was quarantined at home but her report has given me so much joy. She said @NCDCgov officials called every day to ask after her health. She was given a temperature chart and asked to record her temperature everyday. What made me so happy was that she said, the officers were
