    PARIS, MAY 1, 2017: (DGW) Arewa Peace Coalition (APC) has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari for what it described as a double standard in prosecuting the anti-corruption war.

    In an open letter to the president titled ‘A tale of two anti-corruption war' by the leader of the group, Abdulkadir Mohammed, he reminded President Buhari of his pledge that  ‘there will be no sacred cows’

    It called attention to the prosecution of the personal physician of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Fiberesima, by Nigeria's anti-graft agency the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) saying that the same punishment should have been handed Babachir Lawal, the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF)rather than an administrative panel for investigation.

    According to the group, “The suspended SGF should have been handed over to the EFCC as the federal government did to the personal physician of former President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Fiberesima, who is being accused of fraud worth 285million.”

  • Frightening: Popular man of God predicts doom for NIGERIA if President BUHARI dies

    01/May/2017 // 716 Viewers

     

    A Pentecostal Bishop, Rt. Rev. Seun Adeoye has urged Nigerians to pray for the quick recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari, saying his wellbeing is so important to the nation’s co-existence and stability.

    Bishop Adeoye warned that if anything should happen to President Buhari, such would be a difficult burden for the nation to bear as Nigeria will fall into wrong hands that are ready do anything to turn this country into their private estates.  

    The cleric, who spoke during the 1st Episcopal Honours and Gallantry Awards held at the weekend at Sufficient Grace and Truth Ministry (SGTM), Rehoboth Arena, Okinni, Osun State, noted that only God can sustain the president’s health.

    He said, “I see trouble should anything go wrong with President Buhari. So, we need to pray for his quick recovery from this ailment. Buhari must not die; Buhari must live and that should be our prayers.

    “If Buhari is not the president, we will be faced with more lies and propaganda where we are going to be made to call black white. Rule of law will turn to be rule of fear and democracy will be replaced by despotism, favoritism and god-fatherism.

    “We cannot allow Nigeria to be in the hand of any of the present leaders.  None of them can be the captain of this ship; they will run it aground with their arrogance and selfish agenda. They will rob, strip us naked and put us in perpetual bondage as slaves. So, I enjoin all of us to pray for the President Buhari to get well quickly,” he said.

    On those who were honoured, Bishop Adeoye disclosed that they were shortlisted from over 100 nominees and were screened by the church’s Council of Clergy based on their courage, services to humanity and God and their various contributions to the society.

    Those on the successful list were the Commissioner of Police, Kwara State, Mr. Olusola Amore and his counterpart from Osun, Mr. Fimihan Adeoye, Professor Ayo Fatubarin, Pastor and Professor (Mrs) Olusegun Akinwusi, Dr. Kayode Oduoye, Barrister Kanmi Ajibola, Mr. Femi Adefila, Dr. and (Mrs). Niyi Oginni and Deacon and Deaconess Moses Ajayi.

    Speaking on behalf of the awardees, Akinwusi, a former Head of Service in Osun state urged Nigerians to pray fervently for the nation and not to keep mute or look the other way when things are going the wrong in the country.

  • : Kerosene explosion kills 2, injure 3 in A'Ibom

    01/Nov/2016 // 286 Viewers

     

    Two siblings have died in a kerosene explosion in Akwa State. Three persons, including their father, were injured. An eyewitness said the incident occurred at Ikono Ibom in Uyo Local Government.

    The injured victim, Mr. Michael Nsikak, a tricycle operator and father of three, sustained burns. His two children died in the explosion.

    Nsikak, who also operates a poultry near his home at Ikot Enyingne Ikono, said: “I bought kerosene from a filling station on Idoro Road after closing from my tricycle (keke) business.

    “When I got home, I lit the lantern in my poultry, to keep my chicken warm. Later, when the lantern wanted to go off, following the exhaustion of kerosene, I refilled it with the product.

    “My children were with me. As I attempted to light the lantern, there was an explosion. The fire made me to become unconscious.”

    The Nation learnt that one of the children died a few hours after the incident and the second the following day at the University of Uyo Teaching Hospital (UUTH).

    The Chairman of Uyo Local Government Transition Committee, Ben Mfon and his wife, Bridget, visited the victim at the hospital.

    A woman from the same community and her three-month old baby were also hospitalised as a result of kerosene explosion.

    He assured residents that the perpetrators of the unwholesome act would be arrested.

  • Fashola made Lagos biggest debtor with local and foreign debts well over N1 trillion - Taofiq Gani

    01/Nov/2016 // 417 Viewers

     

    The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State has praised Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for his performance.

    In a statement by its spokesman, Taofiq Gani, the party said: “Without adopting the government of Ambode, at least we can now see signs of government presence in some erstwhile abandoned areas under former Governor Babatunde Fashola.”

    The PDP advised President Muhammadu Buhari against relying on the unverified claims of achievements of Fashola because the former governor had the notorious style and practice of promoting mediocrity, propaganda and inappropriate speculation.

    In the party’s opinion, Fashola remains a misfit as a lawyer to occupy such combined ministries of engineering specialities.

    It said: “This patriotic advice is on the heels of the minister celebrating a proposed injection of a mere 30 megawatts of power from the Gurara-hydro power plant, when indeed the minister has collected monumental funding well enough to have injected over 500 megawatts into the National Grid.

    “The attempt by Fashola to celebrate a mere 30 megawatts is laughable and infuriating because Fashola should rather admit failure and feel sober having mismanaged the Power Ministry to now cause a drop of supply from over 6,000 megawatts when he took over to now less than 2,000 megawatts.

    “We sincerely advise President Buhari to be wary of the deceptive skills of Fashola, who will usually hype and celebrate even mediocrity.

    “The minister has a penchant for misrepresenting facts of his achievements in government and would always rationalise obvious inadequacies. As governor, he enjoyed unprecedented revenue and donations, yet left many services untouched or unfinished.”

    “He however deliberately funded his pro-fashola media and commentators so much that pseudo and exaggerated achievements were ascribed to him. He employed this model to promote his eight years government of mediocrity. “Fashola ended up making Lagos the biggest debtor with local and foreign debts well over N1 trillion.”

  • Outrage as ex-Reps Speaker, Dimeji Bankole, backs Buhari for second term

    01/Nov/2016 // 427 Viewers

     

    Former House of Representatives Speaker Dimeji Bankole yesterday said any economic reform to transform a nation can’t be designed and executed by a government in four years.

    Bankole said it would take at least seven years for an economic reform or policy to yield returns, and submitted that President Muhammadu Buhari needs time to fix the ailing economy.

    The ex-Speaker spoke on Sunday evening in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, while delivering the fifth anniversary lecture of the Ijebu News Xtra magazine.

    He added that the President is “doing a thankless job” to fix Nigeria.

    The magazine, published by a celebrity reporter, Dayo Rufai, had, as its anniversary lecture: “Ogun State: Stimulating Youth Enterpreneurship Potential in a Recession.”

    Bankole noted that the answer to recession is not in any textbook but in the willingness of Nigerians to make the right “sacrifices today for a better tomorrow”.

    “I feel sorry for President Buhari. He can’t solve the problem in four years. He needs a second term. No economic reform or policy can be formulated and implemented to produce the expected results within four years, it will take at least seven years.

    “He is doing a thankless job, now like the teachers. No magic or miracle about this, we have to do the work and the government needs support. It is a long distance race.

    “The question is what are you prepared to sacrifice? What risks are you going to take to make Nigeria better? We must make sacrifices to make the country work,” Bankole said.

    According to the former Speaker, technocrats sourced from the relatively stable World Bank can’t fit adequately or effectively as handlers or managers of the economy, which is volatile.

    He added that though he had not given up his ambition to seek an elective office, it would not take much away from him should he decide not to pursue the ambition tomorrow.

    Bankole said God has been kind and merciful to him, noting that he will remain eternally grateful to him, the people of Ogun State and Nigerians for giving him the opportunity to serve the nation.

    He urged the youth to make the right sacrifices, learn trade and leave a legacy people would be proud of.

  • Anglican Diocese Decries State Of South-East Roads

    01/Nov/2016 // 407 Viewers

     

    Nsukka Anglican Diocese, Enugu State, yesterday expressed concern over the decay of some roads in the South-East part of the country, saying that the neglect has affected negatively on the wellbeing of the people of the zone. This was contained in a communiqué issued at the end of its eighth synod with the theme:

    “The Return of the Ark,” held at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Nsukka Local Government Area, signed by the Rt. Rev. Aloysius Agbo, Bishop of Nsukka Diocese and President of the synod and Ven. Chinedu Onah, clerical synod secretary.

    The synod expressed dismay that 9th Mile- Makurdi Road, Enugu- Onitsha Expressway and Enugu-Port-Harcourt Road had become a death trap causing avoidable accidents and making motorists stay hours on the road as a result of the bad state of the roads.

    “Federal Government should urgently intervene to fix these roads as well as improve on the well-being of South-East residents,” it said. It also condemned the recent attack on Nimbo community in Uzo- Uwani Council Area, where suspected herdsmen attacked the community, killing many and injuring others.

    The synod also called on law enforcement agencies to expedite action in bringing the perpetrators to justice.-  New Telegraph

  • Niger Delta dialogue without restructuring meaningless

    01/Nov/2016 // 637 Viewers

     

    The Ijaw people of the Niger Delta yesterday described as meaningless any dialogue on the Niger Delta crisis that has no consideration for restructuring the country. Such an exercise, they said would be in futility.

    The people also described as disappointing, the meeting held by pan-Niger Delta Dialogue Team led by Chief Edwin Clark with the United States Under Secretary for Civilian Security, Democracy, and Homeland Rights, Dr. Sarah Sewall in Abuja, saying that the issues canvassed at the parley seemed to be a prelude to what South-South leaders will present to the Federal Government at the forthcoming dialogue being convened by President Muhammadu Buhari.

    The Ijaw in a joint statement by some groups; Foundation for Human Rights and Anti- Corruption Crusade; Ijaw Human Rights Monitors, Niger Delta Security Watch Organisation and Ijaw Peoples Development Initiative, said the Niger Delta people want a restructuring of the country that would usher in political autonomy and resource ownership by the component states.

    Meanwhile, foremost activist in the Niger Delta, Paul Bebenimibo, yesterday declared today’s meeting between leaders from the oil rich region and President Buhari over the lingering crisis in the region as an exercise in futility without the participation of former militant leader, Chief Government Ekpemupolo, aka Tompolo.

    01/Nov/2016 // 327 Viewers

     

    Miss Tourism 2016 pageant winner, Faithfulness Kennedy has revealed that her place is not beside a man who can’t satisfy her sexual urges.

    The 17-year-old noted in a chat with Vanguard that she’s a risk-taker and thus wishes to experience the greatest possible sexual pleasure in bed.

    The Rivers state born beauty queen, when asked about her take on relationships and premarital sex, said: “Sex is healthy for a relationship; it obviously builds a connection between the partners, it builds a kind of bond and trust.”

    She further said: “In this our modern world everybody’s eye is shining, imagine dating for two years without sex (do u really love me?) Okay, and we finally get married and then on our honeymoon night when we are supposed to go gaga you’re now acting like a donkey, I will divorce you immediately! 

    ''I’m very serious, because at that point the love has dropped. I am telling you this because of some people that will pretend and say they will just stay for staying sake and have sex partners outside.

    “My dear, prevention is better than cure. If we are in a relationship and you can’t satisfy me well in bed, you are a donkey, I’ll leave you, I don’t care if you are a billionaire, just know if I stay I’m staying because of your money.”
