Lesson in Tolerance:
Ojukwu's Secret Daughter Brought Up in Kaduna As Child of Prominent Northerner
The secret daughter ex-Biafran leader left behind was brought up by a prominent Muslim family in Kaduna. She lives among the Northern elite and detests any suggestion that links her with the former warlord. This is the extraordinary story of Ojukwu’s mystery daughter. Even in death Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, Nigeria’s best known rebel leader, seems to have retained his ability to shock. The revelation that he had a secret daughter — to whom he allocated, in his will, one of his landed properties — shocked even the other members of his family. But perhaps more shocking is the discovery — through Sunday Trust investigation — that the daughter was actually brought up by a prominent Northern Muslim as his own “child”.Tenny Hamman, as Ojukwu called her, was raised in Kaduna by former Deputy Inspector General of Police Hamman Maiduguri as his own “daughter”. Although she was formally named Aisha (the name she used in school), she is also called Tani (or Aunty Tani by younger relatives). Tani is a traditional Hausa name given to a female born on Monday. Apparently the name Tenny (or Tenni) that Ojukwu called her is the corrupted version of Tani. Add a comment

The Deputy Director in charge of Media at the Federal Ministry of Power, Mr. Grey Anosike, has absolved his boss, the Minister of State for Power, Hajiya Zainab Kuchi, of the embarrassing statement that Nigeria's power woes are caused by evil spirits. Mr. Anosike claimed he was the one who made that statement.
It would be recalled that Nigeria was embarrassed recently when it was reported that Hajiya Kuchi had told a group South African investors wishing to invest in the power sector that the problems in the sector had persisted because they were caused by evil spirits. Add a comment
Jonathan Has Failed in Securing Nigeria so Power Must Return to North-Atiku, Bugaje
Northern leaders, including former Head of State, Abdulsalami Abubakar, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, former Governor Ibrahim Shekarau of Kano State and former FCT minister, Senator Adamu Aliero, met in Kaduna yesterday (Friday the 7th of December) and declared that the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan had failed in securing the country going by the violent waves of insecurity occasioned by the Islamic terrorist sect, Boko Haram, and as such passed a vote of no confidence on the administration and resolved to work for power to shift to the North in 2015.This was contained in a communique released after the meeting. In the communique read by Atiku loyalist, Dr. Usman Bugaje, the Northern leaders said “The weakening nature and perhaps the failure of the Nigerian State to protect lives and property as well as its inability to provide basic social services and guarantee freedom and rights of citizens cumulatively accounts for the current state of siege in which the North now find itself.

Top brass in the military have reacted to the Jama'atu Nasril Islam (JNI) telling them to steer clear of the military and not inject religious rivalry into its affairs.
