new fake shekau

We have serially demonstrated to our readers that the leader of Boko Haram; the so-called Abubakar Shekau has since been killed and several impostors and computer animations have been used to continue to present him as immortal; aided by certain foreign media to continue to support the reign of fear and terror on Nigeria. SEE: NewsRescue-Boko Haram Leader Abubakar Shekau Is Dead!

After one of the late leader’s better impostors was killed in Konduga this year, the follow-up releases have been most fake with one video having a “Shekau” stand very far from the Camera that his features could not possibly be made out; and this one as described by NewsRescue reader had so many fake elements to it, we brand it “Cartoon Shekau.”

TJ Ahmad said: I write to rescue my people chained by ignorance of advanced technology. I studied in great depth the recent video uploaded on Youtube in which Cartoon-Shekau gave threat to the Emir of Kano, and later found that the video was fake and a mere propaganda. 1- When you turn the sound of the video to the zero level, you will notice that the hand of ‘Shekau’ is not as black as his face. 2- Notice the movement of his hand, you will see that the hand is clearly moving unnaturally just like a cartoon. 3- His body moves at once towards new position which is also a clear feature of cartoon video. 4- Watch his lips carefully, they are repeating a single sounds throughout the speech. 5- His hand appears to be long for his body and wind blows there but his papers stood firmly. God save Nigeria from the hand of those who have been working tirelessly to see off the North.

IF PETROL LANDING COST IS  NOW BELOW THE PUMP PRICE WHEN SHALL MOTORISTS BENEFIT FROM THE REDUCTION?Against the backdrop of the fall in global oil prices, the landing cost of Premium Motor Spirit, commonly known as petrol, has dropped to N82.57 per litre as of Thursday, December 18, from N127.57 on November 3.

The Federal Government’s spending on petrol subsidy has, therefore, fallen to a five-year low of N1.06 per litre as of that, compared to N44.94 on November 3, according to data obtained from the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency.

Subsidy refers to the money paid, usually by government, to keep prices below what they will otherwise be in a free market system.

For instance, the Expected Open Market Price (retail price) of petrol is N98.06 per litre as of December 18, but the regulated price is N97. The difference is subsidy.

As of November 3, the retail price of petrol was N141.94 per litre, according to the PPPRA.

Nigeria, Africa’s top oil producer, relies on importation for most of its fuel needs as the country’s refineries are in a poor state. The fall in oil price has triggered the decline in the landing cost of petrol.

There have been calls in some quarters on the government to reduce the pump price of refined petroleum products as the price of crude oil, which constitutes a major component in the pricing template, have plunged by more than 45 per cent.

Global benchmark Brent crude has lost almost half of its value since its mid-June spike of $115 per barrel, hovering around $61 on Sunday. It recently fell below $60 before rebounding last week.

An executive in the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, who pleaded anonymity, gave an indication as to why there had not been a reduction in the pump price of petrol in the country.

The executive explained, “Reduction of the pump price of petrol doesn’t happen like that because we don’t know how long this fall in oil prices will be. We had the same situation in late 2008 and early 2009. Oil price fell and we had over-recovery (a situation whereby the total cost is lower than the regulated price).

“So, the government went ahead to reduce the pump price of petrol to N65 from N70. The following day, we started having subsidy again because the oil price started increasing. By April of that year, the price had reached N140. So, the market is such that we don’t know what can happen next.”

The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Financial Derivatives Company Limited, Mr. Bismarck Rewane, had in November, when the oil price was still above $80, said that subsidy on refined petroleum products would decline from N2tn by almost 30 per cent.

According to energy specialist at Ecobank, Mr. Dolapo Oni, the weakening of the naira by low oil prices has moderated the gain from the 45 per cent decline in prices.

“While the spot price of West African grade gasoline (which is much lower than typical premium gasoline blends in Europe) has fallen by about 50 per cent, the increase in value of the dollar has limited the gains for Nigerian importers,” Oni said two weeks ago.

 A NIGERIAN REVOLUTION IS COMING UP IN 2015 AGAINST THE PDP...OSINBAJOJonathan leading a visionless govt –Osinbajo

Vice-Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has described the President Goodluck Jonathan-led Federal Government as “inadequate and visionless.”

The former Attorney-General of Lagos State said it was unfortunate that in spite of the fact that Nigerians had given “so much” to the present administration, they have got nothing in return for their sacrifices.

Osinbajo argued via his Twitter page that the APC presidential candidate, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, is a “strong character” that brings to the table a ray of hope for millions of Nigerians.

According to the Ogun State-born serving pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Nigerians should, as a matter of urgency, join the “common sense revolution” that would alter the status quo come February 2015.

“My fellow citizens, thank you all for your support. I am honoured to serve. Nigeria is great and her citizens give so much, yet get nothing in return from today’s inadequate and visionless leadership.

“When strong character like GMB (Buhari) is leading, it provides inspiration that change is possible and hope is not lost. Join the common sense revolution that GMB leads for a new Nigeria!

“To serve is an urgent task. One all must answer! Are you ready?” he asked in a series of messages on Twitter.

Also, a former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, argued that the 2015 presidential election afforded Nigerians the opportunity of choosing between integrity and corruption.

“APC vs PDP: The choice is between integrity-competence of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and Osinbajo versus the incompetence and corruption of the shoeless ones,” the Kaduna APC governorship candidate said on Twitter.

But a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has disagreed with Osinbajo over his claims that the APC is poised towards taking the country to greater heights.

Describing Osinbajo as a “friend and brother,” Fani-Kayode said since he learnt of his nomination as Buhari’s running mate, he had been feeling a deep sense of pity for him.

In a Facebook post entitled, “A word for Prof. Yemi Osinbajo,” the former minister accused Osinbajo of “jumping into bed” with the enemies of democracy.

“I have known Yemi (Osinbajo) for a number of years and I must say that he is not only a very pleasant and civilised person with a warm and gentle disposition, but he is also a cerebral lawyer with a brilliant mind. I have immense respect for him.

“Yet, sadly, ever since I heard about his nomination and announcement as Buhari’s running mate I have felt nothing but sheer pity for him and a deep sense of pathos.

“A gifted servant of God who is a favoured spiritual son of Rev. Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church Of God, has jumped into bed with one of the most consistent enemies of democracy and Nigeria?

“This is very sad. The truth is that each and everyone of us, including my friend Yemi, will ultimately have to answer to God for the choices that we make and we must live with the consequences of those choices,” Fani-Kayode argued.

Meanwhile, the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, has begun an aggressive online campaign to mobilise funds for the Jonathan 2015 re-election.

To this end, the party has launched a website,, a fundraising platform to raise money online.

The PDP stated on the website that it would begin receiving what it described as voluntary “small money donations” that would provide ordinary Nigerians the opportunity of contributing to the President’s campaign.

“Support the Transformation Agenda. Donate to the PDP. We hold nothing against those who prefer to donate anonymously to the PDP Fund.

“Whether it is one naira or one million, we encourage PDP Fund donors to register their donation on for necessary acknowledgement. Small money donations that can be made from the comfort of your home online and on the web or on mobile devices are coming soon.

“The PDP cannot be indebted to one man or a group of financiers, the many who said they would give to the PDP hold us by our promise to defend democracy,” the presidential fundraising said.
