Caveat: 'Sometimes Clueless' in the title is used cautiously and contextually considering the also 'sometimes good work' the NPF do like the recent rescue of the Igbonla kids etc. and  the Presidency too (I struggle to recall an example for the presidency as I type, this may be as a result of my memory momentarily failing me or because there isn't just spectacularly good work unmissable to the mind...I dunno. Sighs)

Now on to the matter


Exhibit One - THE PRESIDENCY 
Recently, Laolu Akande, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo's media aide gave information via twitter that two newly confirmed ministerial nominees will be sworn in BUT
↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓↓
Garba Shehu the Senior Special Assitant on Media and Publicity to President Buhari quickly rubbished the news as false. 

In the end...it turned out that Laolu Akande was right. The ministers were sworn in as earlier tweeted. Do bear in mind that these two are working for the same presidency yet giving differing opinions about the same issue. Is this not cluelessness or somebody's inability to get up to date information before reacting to media reports

Exhibit two - THE NIGERIA POLICE FORCE 
On discovery of an alleged Badoo shrine in Ikorodu, One Alhaji Alaka Abayomi was arrested and accused of being the owner of the shrine.

Here is how the cluelessness is playing out...
As reported by The Punch Newspapers, Alhaji Abayomi told their correspondent that the police lacked evidence and had released him, the police command said he was still in custody.

According to the Alhaji...
I am at home now; you can come now. How did people arrive at the name Badoo? Nobody knows those who are perpetrating the attacks. I have been living in Ikorodu for over 30 years and everybody knows me. I am into oil and gas. I use the shrine for healing different ailments. I took the police there. They didn’t allow journalists to interview me and they didn’t take my statement. I will sue the police for blackmailing me. Let them bring out any exhibit found in the shrine or in my house. Why did they release me if indeed I have connection with Badoo? They said investigation would continue.”

According to the NPF...
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole said
“He is assisting the police with investigations. Through investigations, we discovered that hoodlums in the area wanted to start protests. And it is possible that the evidence that may be used against him and others may be destroyed at the shrine, his home or place of business.

“We have gone to secure all those things, with the suspect in our custody. We will get back to you on what we have done. The suspect is still in our custody, but was told to go and protect those evidences with investigators.”

Having considered both exhibits, who do you think is more 'sometimes clueless'?
