A woman identified as the CEO Heart of Gold Foundation (a popular Facebook Group) has allegedly been kidnapped but some members of her group think its a stunt.
According to social media reports, the "Kidnappers" had earlier requested for 15m Naira ransom but they later brought it down to 300k but members of her group on Facebook aren't buying it because 'this isn't her first time of pulling off stunt like this', they claimed.
She had earlier requested for funds for breast cancer and ovarian cancer but when asked for medical reports, she was unable produce. Her husband's page, according to her followers also show no signs of panic as her husband even posted football gist on his wall few hours ago.

User Avatar Forum: General Discussion

Quote:Abacha’s $103.64m loot

Published October 22, 2019
Twitter users on Tuesday asked the Federal Government to identify the poor Nigerians, who benefited from the $103.64m Abacha loot, it claimed to have disbursed.

The PUNCH had earlier reported that the Special Adviser to the President on Social Investments, Mrs Maryam Uwais, said that the Federal Government has been channelling the recovered Abacha loot and the International Development Association /World Bank credit towards programmes and policies designed to address the plight of poor and vulnerable Nigerians.

Uwais said that the funds, which were specifically being disbursed to beneficiaries of the National Cash Transfer Programme, a component of the National Social Investment Programme, noted that the gesture was positively changing the fortune of many Nigerians.

Since the news broke, Nigerians have been wondering and asking questions about the beneficiaries of the look. While some asked the FG, why they didn’t benefit from the largesse, others asked that the beneficiaries be identified.

  Border Closure: Customs Intercepts Rice Smugglers In A Bush (Photos)
User Avatar Forum: Market Place
Posted by: Edoman - 5 hours ago - No Replies

The strike force team of Zone A of the Nigerian Custom, few days ago, intercepted more rice smugglers with their bikes in a bush.

Following the developments, Nigerians are now smuggling the commodity through bush paths across several border towns.

Despite the risk of getting shot by the operatives and endangerment to wildlife, the smugglers still carry out the act.

In some videos and photos that we've been furnished with, several bags of intercepted rice were heaped and bikes scattered everywhere waiting to be moved to the custom's base.

Earlier today, there were reports by several tabloids of lopsidedness across Nigerian borders, which the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) dismissed the observation, calling for either a photograph or video evidence to prove the allegation.

I'm in hiding' - Fisayo Soyombo, Nigerian journalist who exposed rot in Nigerian prison and judicial system raises alarm

[Image: 5daf2a0634652.jpg]

Fisayo Soyombo, the Nigerian investigative journalist who exposed the rot in Nigerian prison has confirmed that he went into hiding folllowing security operatives' move to arrest him. 
The journalist adopted the pseudonym 'Ojo Olajumoke' as he spent two weeks in detention, five days in a police cell and eight days as an inmate in Ikoyi Prison to expose the rot in Nigeria's justice system in a three-part series. 
Speaking to Sahara Reporters, Fisayo reportedly said he is wanted by the Buhari-led administration for exposing corrupt practices in the Nigeria Police Force and Nigerian Correctional Service.

Quote:“It's true. I'm in hiding" he said. 
His report which contained audio, pictorial and video evidence of corruption in the Nigerian judicial system, allegedly irked the Nigerian prison authorities especially the comptroller-general of the prison services.
The Guardian reported that Fisayo Soyombo was scheduled to speak at a workshop on fake news organised by Goethe Institute on Tuesday evening, but he pulled out of the event following threat of arrest. 
Quote:“Prisons authorities are very angry and have decided to get the journalist arrested,” the source said.
“He is to be charged to court and prosecuted under Section 29 of the Nigeria Correctional Service Act.
Subsection 1 (d) of the Act states that a person is deemed to have committed an offence if he “procures or facilitates the procurement of communication devices for an inmate or makes conversation or aids the making of conversation through a mobile phone or other devices to an inmate other than as provided in the Correctional Standing Orders and other related correctional policies" a source said. 
He has also vacated his residence where he just renewed rent and forced to go underground following a hunt allegedly launched against him by security operatives.

Corruption: ICPC declares Ex-Presidential aide, Obono-Obla, wanted

[Image: 5daf1608cfdfe.jpg]

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has declared suspended Chairman of the Special Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property (SPIP), Okoi Ofem Obono-Obla, wanted due to his repeated failure to appear before it to answer questions bordering on allegations of fraud and corruption.
Obono-Obla is facing series of allegations leveled against him by members of the public on his role as head of the government panel on asset recovery.
A statement from the commission says it has receipt of petitions accusing Obono-Obla of abuse of office, falsification of admission records, living above his income and collection of gratification from suspects under his investigation. The statement from the commission reads in part

Quote:The suspended chairman is also facing allegations of working outside the guidelines governing the panel by investigating unauthorized petitions and prosecuting suspects without recourse to the office of the Attorney General of the Federation.
ICPC had conducted series of investigations on the allegations with preliminary findings showing that some provisions of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2000 and extant laws of Nigeria had been allegedly violated by Mr. Obono-Obla.
Consequently, ICPC had extended several invitations to him, which he had failed to honour without giving any reason. Attempts to track and make him appear before the Commission also failed leading ICPC to contact other law enforcement agencies for assistance concerning his whereabouts.
One of such contact has yielded results as records from the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) show that Mr. Obono-Obla had travelled out of the country.
The NIS records revealed that he left the country to an undisclosed location on 17th August, 2019, through the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Ikeja, and has not returned two months after.

  2020 Governorship: Crisis Of Confidence Tears Edo APC Apart
User Avatar Forum: News
Posted by: Edoman - 7 hours ago - No Replies

A crisis of confidence is tearing the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State apart as countdown to the governorship election in the state, slated for next year commences.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that bigwigs in the party are no longer seeing eye-to-eye, raising fears over the chances of the APC in the high-stakes governorship election, billed for August next year.

Speaking on the development in an interview with a NAN correspondent in Benin on Tuesday, a chieftain of the APC, retired Gen. Charles Airhiavbere, raised the alarm over what he described as “heightened crisis and tension in the party’’.

He said that the APC in Edo had witnessed series of threats, brigandry and actions capable of destroying the fortunes of the party in the upcoming governorship election.

Airhiavbere cited situations, where according to him, APC leaders’ homes have been threatened by some interests in the state.

“We condemn these acts. They are unacceptable to genuine leaders of the APC in Edo State.

“We use this opportunity to also condemn the attack at the residence of our National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole by thugs.’’

Airhiavbere, who contested the governorship primaries in 2016 with the incumbent Edo governor, described as sad, the current political turmoil in the state’s chapter of the APC.

“The crisis originated from the fact that the trio of Gov. Obaseki, his deputy, Mr Philip Shaibu and the Secretary to Government, Mr Osarodion Ogie were sponsored into office by Oshiomhole.

“But today, the three men have vowed to dethrone Oshiomhole as the leader of the APC in Edo State.

“But let me state categorically that we will not allow them to embarrass Oshiomhole.

“He remains the leader of our party in Edo State just as Mr Lawrence Okah remains the authentic state secretary of the APC.

“Let me warn Obaseki that he met us in this game of politics and he should know that he has no monopoly of violence.

“We are only playing it cool because he has perfected plans to defect to the Action Alliance. So his intention is to destroy the APC in Edo State.

“But I don’t think we will fold our arms and allow him destroy this party.

“We will meet him fire for fire, energy for energy and word for word,” Airhiavbere said, alleging that the governor’s plan was “to cow everybody in his bid to get a second term ticket.’’

But reacting to Airhiavbere’s outburst on a looming crisis in the state, the Commissioner for Information, Mr Paul Ohonbamu, described Obaseki as a humane, civilized and refined personality, who hates thuggery, lawlessness and impunity.

“Because of this, there has been a shift from the old order, where people constituted themselves into informal entrepreneurs of violence, intimidating people and extorting monies from them.

“So the governor stopped them, starting with the community development associations and all others.

“So, because of the innovative measures, people who are now losers both in the political market and economic space are now annoyed.

“As for Obaseki, you know he does not believe in thuggery or that violence should be employed as a primary weapon of interaction.

“There is nobody who is a thug around him. He does not want it. They are not comfortable with him because he has turned the thing around.

“That old system of diminutive accumulation of forcing people or of dominating people by force, he said no; that can no longer be and many of them have been dealt with on that ground.’’

Ohonbamu said that the governor’s policies were geared at liberating the Edo people from the stronghold of illiterate thugs and violence-inclined people.

  Top 10 Countries Where Government Beg Citizens to Have More S*x
User Avatar Forum: Other Stories
Posted by: Edoman - 11 hours ago - No Replies

This might sound ridiculous, but do you know that there are countries where citizens are being begged by the government to have more s*x? Have a look at the s*x-starved nations.

[Image: Edelmira-Barreira-1.jpg]

Minister for S*x Appointed in Spain, Edelmira Barreira
There are few things more important than fertility in determining a nation's future viability.

Demographers suggest that a country needs a fertility rate of just over two children per woman to hit "replacement fertility" — the rate at which new births fill the spaces left behind by deaths.

But because of certain cultural and economic forces, only about half of the world's 224 countries currently hit replacement fertility.

For those that don't, encouraging people to have sex can involve strategies that range from highly explicit to downright bizarre.

1. Denmark

If you aren't going to have a kid for your own family, Danes are told, at least do it for Denmark.

No, literally, do it for Denmark.

The small Nordic country has such a low fertility rate — about 1.73 children per woman — that Spies Rejser, a Danish travel company, has come up with ingenious incentives to persuade women to get pregnant.

First, it offered to provide three years' worth of baby supplies to couples who conceived on a vacation booked through the company.

Now it has come up with a sexy campaign video titled "Do it for Mom," which guilt trips couples into having kids to give their precious mothers a grandchild.

2. Russia

Vladimir Putin once brought Boyz II Men to Moscow to rile men up right before Valentine's Day.

Can anyone blame him? As Tech Insider recently reported, the country is experiencing a perfect demographic storm. Men are dying young. HIV/AIDS and alcoholism are crippling the country. And women aren't having babies.

The problem got so bad that in 2007 Russia declared September 12 the official Day of Conception.

On the Day of Conception, people get the day off to focus on having kids. Women who give birth exactly nine months later, on June 12, win a refrigerator.

3. Japan

Japan's fertility rate has been below replacement since 1975.

To offset that decades-long trend, in 2010 a group of students from the University of Tsukuba introduced Yotaro, a robot baby that gives couples a preview of parenthood.

If men and women begin thinking of themselves as potential fathers and mothers, the students theorized, they'll feel emotionally ready to take a stab at the real thing.

4. Romania

The 1960s in Romania were a perilous time for couples.

Population growth flatlined, prompting the government to impose a 20% income tax for childless couples and to implement provisions that made divorce nearly impossible.

The idea was: If you weren't contributing to the communist state by creating future laborers, you had to contribute with dollars instead.

The 1980s weren't much better, however — women faced forced gynecological exams that were performed by "demographic command units" to ensure pregnancies went to term. When Romanian leadership changed in 1989, the brutal policy finally came crashing down. But at 1.31 children per woman, the fertility rate is still well below replacement.
5. Singapore

Singapore has the lowest fertility rate in the world, at just 0.81 children per woman.

On August 9, 2012, the Singaporean government held National Night, an event sponsored by the breath-mint company Mentos, to encourage couples to "let their patriotism explode."

The country has also placed a limit on the number of small one-bedroom apartments available for rent to encourage people to live together and, presumably, procreate.

Each year the government spends roughly $1.6 billion on programs to get people to have more sex.

6. South Korea

On the third Wednesday of every month, South Korean offices shut their lights off at 7 p.m. It's known as Family Day.

With a fertility rate of just 1.25 children per woman, the country takes any steps it can to promote family life — even offering cash incentives to people who have more than one child.

7. India

India as a whole has no problem with fertility — the country's ratio of 2.48 children per woman is well above replacement.

But the number of people in India's Parsis community is dwindling — it shrank from roughly 114,000 people in 1941 to just 61,000 in 2001, according to the 2001 census.

That problem led to a series of provocative ads in 2014, including one that read "Be responsible — don't use a condom tonight." Another, geared toward men who lived at home, asked, "Isn't it time you broke up with your Mum?"

The ads seem to be working: By the latest measure, the population has inched back to 69,000.

8. Italy

With a fertility rate of 1.43 — well below the European average of 1.58 — Italy has taken a controversial approach to encourage citizens to have more kids.

As Bloomberg reports, the country has been running a series of ads reminding Italians that time might be running out and that kids don't just come from nowhere.

"Beauty knows no age, fertility does," one ad said. "Get going! Don't wait for the stork," another said.

Couples haven't responded positively to the guilt trip. Francesco Daveri, a professor of economics at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, has called the ads a failure.

9. Hong Kong

With a fertility rate of just 1.18 children per woman, Hong Kong faces the same challenge as many industrialized countries: Without enough young people to replace aging citizens, populations are dwindling and economic growth is slowing.

In 2013, the country proposed giving cash handouts to couples to encourage them to have kids.

The idea took its cue from Singapore, where parents receive a "baby bonus" of about $4,400 for their first two children and $5,900 for their third and fourth.

But in Hong Kong, the plan never came to life.

10. Spain

Fertility rates in Spain are creeping downward while unemployment is rising: About half of all young people don't have a job. It's the second-highest rate in Europe, behind Greece.

To combat the worrying trends, the Spanish government hired a special commissioner, Edelmira Barreira, in January 2017. Her first tasks are finding the myriad causes of the trend and devising macro strategies to reverse it .

"We have a lot of work ahead of us," Barreira told the Spanish newspaper Faro De Vigo

  How To Stop Thinking About Someone Who Breaks Your Heart
User Avatar Forum: Other Stories
Posted by: Edoman - 11 hours ago - No Replies

It can be very demoralizing when someone you love breaks up with you. There’s no way you will forget such a person in a hurry, especially if the break up wasn’t your fault. In this article, you will learn how to stop thinking about someone who breaks your heart.
Let me tell you the truth…
It’s difficult to stop thinking about someone you shared some cool romantic moments with. Also, it breaks the heart when you try to force yourself to forget someone. Trying to forget about someone is a cycle that’s often difficult to break.
Sometimes the more you try to stop thinking about the person who betrays your love, the more you think about them. Yeah, it’s that frustrating.
Many people ended up in depression just because they can’t stop thinking about their Ex. Some even end up committing suicide, thinking their life is worthless without the same person who breaks their hearts.
The good thing is, you can forget about anybody if you make up your mind to do it. That’s why we are here to guide you on how to stop thinking about someone you want to forget.
In the next, I’m going to share with you some useful tips that will help you forget about someone quickly.
If you are currently thinking about someone, I know how demoralizing and frustrating it can be. I have been there before, and it almost ruined me. And I don’t want it to destroy you.
Always remember that anybody who betrays your trust and love doesn’t deserve you. Do you know why? It’s because you are the best of your kind.

How to Stop Thinking About Someone Who Breaks Your Heart
Before I start sharing the tips, let me tell you a terrible heartbreak story about my friend. Her name is Rita. She had a boyfriend whom she loved so much. Unfortunately, the boy was only using her because he had someone he wanted to marry.
They dated for over three years. Rita was already living in the fantasy that Jordan (her boyfriend) is her future husband. She always had a mental image of how their marriage life will be like. In fact, she has planned her life around Jordan as she believed he is Mr. Perfect.
Sometimes, Rita and Jordan would sit together, brainstorming on possible names for their children. Yes, they were that crazy about each. Sadly, all the love Jordan professed for Rita was fake. He never truly loved her, and all the promises were false.
Heartbreakingly, Jordan had a serious girlfriend somewhere, and Rita was just a side chick. But Rita didn’t know on time. It was a few days to Jordan’s wedding that she knew.
She was devastated and broken and became a shadow of herself. She even attempted suicide on several occasions. Luckily, people were always there to save the situation.
However, she survived after a while and moved on. She’s happily married now with kids. If Rita can stop thinking about Jordan and move on, why can’t you? Without much ado, here are the tips on how to stop thinking about someone.

#1. Decide To Forget About The Person
Our first tip on how to stop thinking about someone is to forget about that person. It’s more complicated than it sounds. But if you make up your mind, you can achieve it.
How do you forget about the person? Assume he or she never exist in your life. Tell yourself the truth that it’s over between you guys, and you want to move on with your life.
It’s natural for some part of you to still long for that person. So, remind yourself that the person is in the past, it’s time to create a future without them.

#2. Officially Notify The Person That It’s Over
This is an area most people make mistakes. If you want to stop thinking about someone, start by ending things with them.
Whatever relationship you have with such a person should be ended. Do you know why? If you fail to end things officially, they will always come back and beg. Don’t forget that your ex-lover whom you dated for a while know your weak point.
But if you end things up with them, you can feel bad for a while. After this, you redirect your energy into something more creative. Inside of burying yourself in thoughts, you can look for something else to preoccupy your mind.

#3. Don’t Try To Forget Them At Once
As I mentioned earlier, forgetting someone doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a process. And if you try to ignore the person overnight, it could be counterproductive.
It’s still okay to miss the person. If possible, think about the good old days you had with them. But this shouldn’t last for more than a few days. Otherwise, depression may be inevitable.
After the first few days of missing him or her, move on with your life. Always remember that before you met that person, you were doing excellently. And you and going to do even more after you leave.
Again, don’t forget that they are countless people out there who are better than the person who breaks your heart. With these thoughts, you can move on quickly.

#4. Divert Your Thought to Something or Someone Else
I think this is one of the best tips on how to stop thinking about someone, instead of wasting your time thinking about someone who betrayed your love. You could actually divert such thoughts to someone else. It could be a childhood friend or someone who has been there for you.
What I usually do is to think of the beautiful people around who are always there for me. It could be my mom, siblings, friends, or colleagues. Once you divert your thoughts to these people, you can forget about the ungrateful fellow who breaks your heart quickly.

#5. Avoid Having Contact With Them By All Means
The easiest way to forget about someone is when you stop contacting them. If you are trying to erase someone from your memory, resist every urge to contact that person.
It doesn’t matter if it’s through phone calls, text messages, or meeting them one on one. If you can do this, you will forget that person faster than you can imagine. But if you keep bumping into them, the possibility of forgetting about that person is slim.

#6. Don’t Blame Yourself For What Happen
It’s normal for you to feel guilty about what happened. I know you think that if you were more diplomatic, the person wouldn’t have left. But the truth is, whoever will go will always leave.
It doesn’t matter how nice you are to them; they will always cheat or betray your truth in the slightest opportunity. So, instead of demoralizing your spirit with guilt, why don’t you cheer up. Or don’t you know that it takes two to tangle? If your partner can’t fight for the relationship, why blaming yourself.
If you keep blaming yourself, you will end up getting depressed. And you know what that means? You will have low self-esteem.
Again, if you are already blaming yourself too much about the entire breakup, engage in things that will make you happy. You can decide to see an exciting movie or stream funny videos online.

#7. Dwell More On Their Negative Traits
Remember the last time you saw caught pants down cheating on you? What about the lies he told you about his job? Or have you forgotten that he’s lazy and only good at beating people?
Well, a great tip on how to stop thinking about someone is to dwell more on such a person’s negative traits. Was he a chronic womanizer? Pathetic liar, or an aggressive young man?
If you can refocus your thoughts along with the person’s negative trait, you will dislike everything about him. The thoughts of such a person will irritate you.
Remember, anybody who breaks your heart will always want to come back for amends. He or she will ask for a second chance. And time like this, you may be confused and want to fall in love with them again. Just ruminate on their flaws, and you will be able to forget them once and for all.

#8. If Possible Stay Offline For A While
I mentioned earlier that you should avoid any form of contact with the person. Online platforms are not exempted. Try to block or unfollow them across different social media platforms. Otherwise, seeing their activities online will make the whole scenario worst.
Don’t forget that keeping the distance is vital when trying to forget someone.

#9. Change Environment For A While If Possible
Getting out of town is another useful tip on how to stop thinking about someone. When you change the environment, you can take a break from everything, including the person you are trying to forget.
If you are still in the same location, there is the possibility of you seeing things that always remind you of such a person. But a different environment will give you a better perspective. You could make new friends and preoccupy your mind with other essential issues.

#10. Keep Yourself Busy
In the words of George Carlin, “never allow the brain Idle for an Idle mind is the devil’s workshop.” Indeed, you must have heard of those words somewhere.
Staying idle is a big mistake when you are trying to stop thinking about someone. No matter how much you try, in as far you are idle, your thoughts will always find their way to the person you are trying to forget.
But if you are busy, the chances of you thinking about that person is very slim. For this reason, try to keep yourself busy. Playing games and reading exciting novels could help.

#11. Spend More Time With Your Friends
Spending time with your friend helps a lot when your heart bleeds from heartbreak. And if your friends aren’t as boring as mine, you could stop thinking about the person who betrays your love quickly.
I’m sure you have some of those crazy friends on your list. I mean those people who will make you smile even if you are in the worst state of mind. Well, it’s time to activate them because they will be instrumental in helping you forget someone easily.

#12. Avoid Romantic Movies If You Can
Watching movies like The Notebook, Titanic, Romeo, and Juliet, etc. is a bad idea when you are trying to forget someone. These movies will activate their thoughts on your mind. You will unconsciously be thinking about the right time you have spent with them. And we both know it is not a good omen.

#13. Tell Yourself That They Have Moved On
Another good tip on how to stop thinking about someone is to tell yourself that they have moved on. Remind yourself that it’s a reality, the person is never coming back. It’s time to move on and do something good with yourself. If these thoughts keep coming to your mind, you are on the verge of forgetting that person.

#14. Never Talk About The Person While With Your Friends
The more you talk about someone you are trying to forget, the more you think about them. Even if your friends try to come up with the conversation, always avoid it. You may find it difficult to resist the urge of not talking about the person who breaks your heart, but avoiding the topic is a better option.

#15. Pretend to be Having Fun, Even though you are not
I’m sure you don’t want to give them the impression that you can’t live without them. Just pretend to be having fun with your friends and family. Go to beautiful places and force happiness out of you. Over time, you will eventually forget about everything and move on.

Like I mentioned earlier, forgetting someone doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time. But if you follow our tips here, you will learn how to stop thinking about someone who breaks your heart.
Nobody is worth killing yourself over. When someone leaves you, another one will always come. That’s the beauty of relationships. And before you do anything drastic because someone breaks your heart. Always remember that nothing truly lasts forever. Even the best love stories we have heard never lasted forever.
So, snap out of that mood and cheer up. Do you know why? It’s because naijalovetips genuinely care.
Don’t forget to share with your friends on social media; it may help someone going through heartbreak.

  Sanwo-Olu and Lagos deplorable roads
User Avatar Forum: General Discussion
Posted by: Edoman - 11 hours ago - No Replies

[Image: Lagos-Road.jpg]

The state of roads in Lagos State, ‘‘the state of aquatic splendour,’’ also generally believed to be the economic capital of West Africa, is currently very deplorable. It has become a reproach to the people and the nation. The state appears to be increasingly becoming dysfunctional to the extent that this negative turn of events needs to be arrested immediately. The situation is worse within the inner roads across the five divisions of the state.

 A drive through the nooks and crannies of the Lagos metropolis as well as the surrounding suburbs gives a totally different picture from what is visible along the major roads of Ikorodu Road, Funso Williams Avenue and those in parts of Ikoyi, Lekki and Victoria Island. What appears obvious is that the significant strides in road infrastructural development made by previous administrations in the state appear to have lost momentum. Hue and cry of bad experiences by regular road users appear to be the order of the day. 

However, it is heart-warming that the current state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu himself appears to have come to terms with these reproachful voices among the populace and has appealed for patience, promising to attend to the problem after the rains. Aside from merely making promises, which people hardly take seriously from politicians, infrastructural development in a state such as Lagos is often multifaceted and even complicated. But leaders of such high-profile states should muster enough executive intelligence to handle such exigencies with dispatch and conviction.

First, Lagos is just too important in the country’s development equation to be treated haphazardly when it comes to overall economic, social and political development. Even the Federal Government under previous heads of state such as Murtala Muhammed and Ibrahim Babangida acknowledged the uniqueness of Lagos as a unique commercial capital while proclaiming and legalising Abuja as the nation’s capital.

Specifically, on February 3, 1976 when General Muhammed, then Head of State proclaimed Abuja as the new capital of the federation, in an address to the nation, he designated Lagos as a Federal Territory and ‘‘Special Area’’ that would continue to be given special attention and special status. In fact, he had pledged that the significant status would be worked into the 1979 Constitution then in the works. He equally proposed Port Harcourt (in the South South and Kaduna in the far North as special cities that deserve special attention too – to defuse pressure on Abuja. 

Besides, the same General Muhammed 43 years ago, also noted (in the same address) the two ports in Apapa, Lagos as national security assets that would continue to be maintained as a matter of national priority.  Hence, the current Federal Government has a role to play in ensuring that the Lagos metropolis has a functional infrastructure. The Lagos State governor should also keep himself abreast of these facts and ensure that the city and its environs do not degenerate into a mighty slum that could be difficult to salvage in any future urban renewal programme.

No doubt, infrastructural development is the backbone of economic development and growth as exemplified by the advanced and emerging economies globally. China today is increasingly threatening the dominance of the U.S. as the global economic powerhouse, basically by investing heavily in infrastructure and providing a very solid base for the enhancement of productive activities across the length and breadth of its vast country. In Nigeria, the infrastructural deficit is not limited to Lagos. It is a nationwide problem. 

However, the peculiarity of Lagos places some extra burden on the governor since the city is widely regarded as the commercial capital of Nigeria and as such poor infrastructure in Lagos, adversely affects the growth and development of the Nigerian economy – being the major port, the entry point for most of the goods that come into Nigeria. Even though many have called for the decentralisation of the operations of the port system, to other ports outside Lagos, the city will still be very critical in the movement of finished and intermediate goods into and within the country. Lagos is indeed unique in many respects at the moment.

It is however worrisome that Sanwo-Olu does not appear to appreciate the enormousness of the responsibility placed on him in providing and maintaining functional infrastructure in the state. One of the first moves of the governor was the signing of an Executive Order on traffic control, as if the problems of Lagos were solely caused by the populace who are daily struggling to eke out a living for themselves and their families, under very difficult road conditions. With dilapidated and non-functional roads, vehicle breakdowns have been a common occurrence across the state. The government usually requires vehicle owners to ensure that their vehicles are road-worthy whereas most of the roads in Lagos are not vehicle-worthy. The blame for the traffic chaos cannot be rightfully placed at the doorsteps of the struggling road-users alone. 

That first move by the governor tends to suggest that he does not really appreciate the real problems behind the traffic bottlenecks across the state. Of the three elements of road safety, namely, the road, the vehicle and the driver, the most important is the road. Most of the roads within Lagos are bad and require urgent attention.

Meanwhile, we need to recognise that Sanwo-Olu inherited most of the decrepit road networks barely six months ago. There is a history of poor road construction in Lagos. If there had been quality control, he would not have inherited the scale of poor quality we are lamenting here. This is where we need to appeal to him to ensure that as he begins repairs quality control by the road authorities should be a ‘‘fundamental objective’’ and directive principle of state policy.

It can be recalled that official vehicles of government officials in the country, which used to be the Peugeot saloon cars in years past have now been changed to SUVs, probably as government’s own curious response to the preponderance of bad roads they can’t fly over across the country. It has been a sad commentary that our leaders have always chosen to fly over all the bad roads – even while visiting their constituencies.  Currently, due to corrupt practices among government officials, supervision of road construction is generally poor and contracts appear not to be designed to serve the overwhelming public interest.

Meanwhile, this newspaper would like to note that the development of critical infrastructure in Lagos should be spread across the state and not the current focus on Oshodi and other visible locations by virtually all the administrations. This deprives other parts the needed attention in basic infrastructural development. As the governor is calling for patience until the rainy season ends, it is hoped that, that would not just be an empty promise to push off the public outcry at the sorry state of affairs of infrastructure development in the state. 

We dare to encourage Sanwo-Olu to prove his critics wrong by rising to the occasion and ensuring that the euphoria that greeted his ascension to power in the state is not misplaced. Lagos currently deserves better than it is currently having.

In the main, we also hope that the federal authorities in Abuja will also wake up to their responsibility to Lagos, which makes for them a large chunk of the money they spend in the nation’s capital.

How do you know if Health Supplement Bucket exists? We'll visit a minute. Do you need to go back on looking to be humiliated? How neat is that? In the final analysis, I recognize that tough minded hypothesis. How do they do that? There has been a sudden decrease in purchases for that. It's the first thing. There are several collaborating speculations in that arena. Believe you me, there you go. That game plan gave me rather an adrenaline rush and what we're trying to create is a network of Health Supplement Bucket sites. You are wrong because it consumers agree with you. I'll try to fill in a good many of the details of skillful people using it, if other old pros don't beat me to it. From whence do veterans find reasonable Health Supplement Bucket notions? Right, not by a long shot. I was flabbergasted to learn the thoughts in respect to that opinion. I would love to incorporate this into this. It just may save you a little time.

Why six? due to the fact the extra instances you eat throughout the day the higher your metabolism could be. So take your total range of calories you want to maintain your weight, subtract it by using 500 (so you can lose weight) and divide that new range by means of 6. You need to eat that many calories.

  Smuggling Booms At Nigeria, Niger Border, Despite Border Closure
User Avatar Forum: Market Place
Posted by: Edoman - Yesterday, 01:28 PM - No Replies

• Customs arrest 50 suspects, seize 14 trucks Accuse residents of border towns of complicity

Quote:Francis Sardauna in Katsina and Eromosele Abiodun in Lagos

Despite the closure of Nigerian land borders by the federal government in the last three months, smuggling still persists at the border between Nigeria and Niger Republic, THISDAY’s investigation has revealed.

THISDAY gathered that at the border between Jibia in Katsina State and Niger Republic, smugglers have resorted to the use of illegal routes to ferry in bags of foreign rice, bales of second-hand clothing and other contrabands.

However, the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has dismissed the observation, calling for either a photograph or video evidence to prove the allegation. NCS also said it would be impossible for smugglers to operate at any of the country’s borders.

Investigation revealed that while strict compliance appears to reign at the main border post between the two countries, illegal businesses still thrived at some bush paths and sundry illegal entry points where unscrupulous security operatives, work hand-in-glove with smugglers to smuggle contraband goods into the country.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on August 20, 2019 ordered a joint border security aimed at securing the country’s land and maritime borders.

But when THISDAY visited the border town of Jibia at the weekend, it was observed that there were some illegal routes that commercial drivers and motorcyclists were using to transport goods and passengers into the country.

It was gathered that rice smugglers were also taking advantage of the lax security to bring their wares into the country but at much higher price than before.

Some of the illegal routes the smugglers used to ferry in the contrabands from Niger Republic to Jibia Local Government Area of Katsina State include Sabon Gari, Dan-Harau, Alele, Makada and Maidabaro roads despite heavy security at the borders.

The smugglers, it was learnt, go through the laborious route of offloading the contrabands few meters away from the official border security post and use J-5 buses, Gulf 4 and 5 vehicles and motorcycles to ferry the items from their hideouts into Jibia for onward transportation to their warehouses in Katsina, Kano, Kaduna, Zamfara, Jigawa States and some other parts of the country.

Residents of the border town told THISDAY that the smugglers were being aided by security personnel, including soldiers, policemen, Customs and immigration officials, who allegedly collected money from the smugglers to allow them a free passage at the 13 checkpoints between Jibia and Katsina metropolis.

A motorcyclist involved in smuggling, who pleaded anonymity, told THISDAY that those of them engaged in the business understood the risks and dangers involved but affirmed that they would not encounter any problem unless they refused to cooperate with security operatives at the checkpoints.

“Unless one refused to pay the bribe for each category of items or when it is time for the officials to sacrifice you to prove that they are working – that is when they will arrest you in the name of smuggling,” he explained.

A commercial driver simply identified as Sule, who specialised in smuggling, said business had been booming for them because they do convey a bag of rice from Maradi (Niger Republic) to Katsina at the cost of N3,000 each.

“We used to charge rice merchants N3,000 for each bag of rice carried from Maradi to Katsina State. Although, we do follow bush paths and sometimes custom officers do arrest us. But once we give them some monies they allow us to pass even though some of them are very stubborn,” he stated.

He, however, lamented that the border closure has contributed negatively to the socio-economic imbalance of the state and the country in general.

When contacted, the NCS Commander in charge of Sector 4 Command of the National Border Drill Operation, Bashir Abubakar, said about 50 suspected smugglers had so far been apprehended and 14 trucks of contrabands intercepted.

He lamented that Jibia border has always been one of their major flashpoints since the commencement of the operation two months ago because of the “mental behaviour” of the inhabitants of the area.

“We have seen that people of that area are not in good terms with government security agencies and it has been a history,” he added.

On the allegation that his officers were extorting money from smugglers, Abubakar said: “I will not say yes, it is true but at the same time I will not deny because we are all human beings and there is no Nigerian that changes name in terms of issues of integrity and character.

“Think of anywhere in the world, there are bag eggs and good eggs. The same thing applies to various agencies in Nigeria – both government and private agencies but anyone found wanting will be punished.”

He added that lack of adequate operational vehicles and banditry has affected their ability to carry out the operation in all the villages in the state.

The Sector 4 Command of the National Border Drill Operation covers Jigawa, Kano, Katsina, Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara States.

Officers on the joint exercise were drawn from the Nigeria Customs Service, Nigeria Army, Nigeria Immigration Service, DSS and Nigerian Air Force.

We Need Video Evidence, Says Customs
When contacted, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Nigeria Customs Service, Joseph Attah said it would be impossible for smugglers to move around easily in any Nigerian border because of the security presence at the borders.

He said officers manning the borders were drawn from security services, which include the police, air force, army, Customs and the Department of State Services (DSS).

“This information is important to me. If you have evidence kindly make it available so I can challenge the Sector 4 Commander. This is something that nationwide, whoever gives that information should give us photographs or video evidence.

“The NCS is very interested in this information. What I can tell you is that this joint border exercise is coordinated by the office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) and there are joint forces, not only Customs officers and they are in all the borders, divided into four sectors. If I have an evidence to back up this information, I will quickly take it up with the Sector Commander and report the matter to the Office of the National Security Adviser.

“This is not Customs alone; the police are there, air force and the army are there; so, if somebody goes to Jibia and is saying that is what is happening in Idi-Iroko is not happening at Jibia, then, I will be interested. This is not Customs affair; it is all security agencies that are there. Your reporter should tell me where he is there so I can connect him with the people on ground to help.

When asked if there is possibility smuggling is still going on in Jibia, he said, “I can tell you that whatever you see happening in Seme, Idi-Iroko and other land borders around the country is what is happening in Jibia, Umfun, Cross Rivers, and Migatiri in Sokoto State.”

As Immigration reviews visa-on-arrival procedure, airlines reject Lagos passengers


Foreigners coming into Nigeria via Lagos, are in for more scrutiny as the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS), Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) Command, has reviewed the visa-on-arrival procedure.
The review, which took effect at the weekend, mandates all visiting non-Nigerians to either obtain a visa or apply for visa-on-arrival approval before embarking on the trip.

The development, which caught many travelers unawares, has led to a situation where operating foreign carriers are rejecting passengers that do not fully comply with the visa-on-arrival processes.

At least five passengers of Kenya Airways, inbound Lagos from Nairobi, were yesterday affected, as the airline left them behind in Kenya.
Rwandan national carrier, RwandAir, also reported compliance with the new directive, though “it is very painful to say no to our loyal customers that had booked earlier before we got the new directive from Lagos airport,” an official of the airline said.

The MMIA Command of the Immigration, in a letter to all foreign carriers, dated October 16, directed all airlines operating at the Lagos airport not to convey any expatriate that requires Nigerian visa into the country but was yet to either obtain same from an embassy of Nigeria in his or her home country, or get an approval for visa-on-arrival before departure.

The letter signed by the Officer-in-Charge of General Duties, ACI S.U. Agba, on behalf of the Comptroller of Immigration Service, further stated that the directive does not exempt a national of any country from compliance.
The NIS recently launched a new visa-on-arrival application process for all business travelers and African Union countries. The initiative allows visitors coming into Nigeria, to obtain their visa at the point of entry, as part of the Federal Government’s ease of doing business scheme.

Though many passengers were affected by the latest review, stakeholders have described the move as a step in the right direction.

A travel professional, Bolaji Binuyo, said the Immigration was apparently trying to live up to their duties, here in Nigeria.

“But if they are just doing that now, what have they been doing all these while? Travelers have been coming here only to begin the process of visa on arrival. But no country allows that. You must have applied and received an approval stating that you are qualified for such status before you begin the trip,” Binuyo said.

Another expert, who preferred anonymity, added that the review might not be unconnected with attempts to discourage paying cash for visa at the airport.

“But the Immigration officers should check themselves. Even if you’ve paid overseas for visa-on-arrival, they will still demand for $20 service charge at the airport. Tell them you want to pay via card; they will say there is no network connection. My clients had complained about these many times.

“The new directive is in line with standard travel practices, but the authorities must also curb a lot of shady deals by the officers at the airport.”

DPR, stakeholders seek safer measures for petroleum products transportation

[Image: petroleum.jpg][FILES] Petroleum plant. Photo: PEXELS
Worried about the rising number of incidents and casualties from petroleum tanker mishaps, the Federal Government through the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), alongside relevant stakeholders in the oil and gas product distribution system in the country, will explore new measures to stem the tide.
According to the DPR, extant regulations and safety measures will be reviewed to avert similar occurrences in the future as well as ensure that road haulage of petroleum products remains safe, as newer alternatives were being explored.
While efforts are underway to address the parlous state of the roads, the DPR noted that weak links in the haulage process need to be addressed as safeguard measures.

Preparatory to its yearly general meeting scheduled for Thursday, October 24, DPR Zonal Operations Controller, Lagos Zonal Office, Oluwole Akinyosoye, said all stakeholders including the Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD), Depot and Petroleum Product Marketers Association of Nigeria (DAPMAN), and Independent Petroleum Product Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), are expected at the forum to address the concerns.
Others are Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN), and Lubricant Producers Association of Nigeria (LUPAN).
The meeting, according to the DPR, will give the relevant stakeholders ample opportunity to proffer solutions on the challenges and causes of poor petroleum haulage system in the country.
He added that government agencies including the Lagos State Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Federal and State Fire Services, Lagos, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), and Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), are also expected to participate at the meeting.
“We recall the tragic incident that occurred on Otedola Bridge on the 28th of June, 2018. At this incident, 12 lives were lost, many people were injured, and at least 55 vehicles were lost to the inferno. This persistent carnage by road haulage of petroleum products in our society necessitates a choice of our theme for this year.
“At the AGM, we intend to discuss the root causes of tanker incidents and other things to be done in DPR to further strengthen our processes in this regard especially for the Lagos zone and Nigeria in general,” headed.

He assured that DPR is committed to working with all stakeholders to drive and enhance good business practices and safety culture in the downstream sector and the petroleum industry as a whole.

  It is best to choose dolls that are a bit costly

It is best to choose dolls that are a bit costly, especially those made from TPE or silicone. Being hypo allergic, these materials are completely safe for the human skin, and can be used without any tension of irritation or infection. They can also be easily disinfected and cleaned without causing any detrimental effects to the product’s quality. The skeleton that is used to make these products are quite frail and have necessary padding to ensure zero damage to the user.

After all is said and done, nothing beats a cuddly night, watching your favorite movie with your sex doll. Pick an appropriate movie for either of the holidays and enjoy the lovely mellows or daunting scares together. You can either watch the movie in the house or invest your time to build a simple DIY theatre in the backyard. Set out everything well and don’t forget to include a fireplace to keep the place nice and warm.

However, being sized in carrying shapes, it is best to avoid carrying these dolls with weight being applied on your back, in order to avoid any unforeseen back injury. With that clarified, you should be convinced by now how great an experience it is to have fun with a sex doll and spice up your life. However, in order to enjoy these pleasures for yourself it is important to buy a silicone doll for yourself.

Probably, the most noble thing to do over the holidays, exchanging gifts is an ideal way of showing appreciation and gratitude to your significant other. I’m guessing by now you know your adult doll well and picking the right gift for her won’t be a problem. Pick an appropriate gift for the holiday- for Halloween, common gift ideas include witch socks, batty gift, witch’s survival kits, among others. For Christmas, you can buy a personalized cashmere sweater with her favorite color, a zodiac sign necklace, among others.

Seven banks account for 64 per cent of industry assets

[Image: Emefiele-3.jpg]CBN Governor Emefiele. Photo: SKYTREND

The nation’s Deposit Money Banks (DMBs) is currently dominated by seven operators, with a cumulative asset base of 63.8 per cent, valued at N35.1 trillion, the latest Financial Stability Report of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has said.

The report, covering the second half of 2018, categorised the seven lenders as Domestic Systemically Important Banks (D-SIBs), based on the supervisory framework- size, interconnectedness, substitutability, and complexity.
Beside dominating the industry’s total assets, it also had 65.23 per cent of the industry total deposit of N21.73 trillion, as well as 66 per cent of the industry total loans of N15.34 trillion.

An examination conducted by the apex bank revealed that the D-SIBs were largely in compliance with the regulatory requirements, including capital adequacy and liquidity ratios.

For example, the average CAR for the D-SIBs stood at 19.82 per cent, while the liquidity ratio stood at 46.29 per cent, with an improvement in non-performing loans ratio from 11.31 per cent at end of June 2018, to 9.82 per cent at end of December 2018.

Meanwhile, an industry stress test was conducted to evaluate and determine the resilience of the banking industry to probable and adverse shocks, including credit, liquidity, interest rate and contagion risks for 21 commercial and five merchant banks, showed improved indices.

Specifically, the baseline Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) for the banking industry at end of December 2018 was 15.26 per cent, indicating 3.18 percentage points increase from the 12.08 per cent recorded at end of June 2018.
The baseline banking industry NPL ratio was 11.64 per cent at the end of December 2018, showing a slight improvement of 0.81 percentage points from the 12.45 per cent recorded at the end of June 2018.

CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, on the sidelines of the just concluded yearly meetings of the International Monetary Fund/World Bank Group, affirmed that the banking industry was stable and sound.

Contagion risk analysis through the interbank exposures and interconnectedness showed that six banks accounted for 82 per cent (N252 billion) of total placements and 86 per cent (N266 billion) of total takings.

On the other hand, four banks emerged top placers of funds at the interbank market within the period, valued at N190 billion, representing 71 per cent of available funds.

However, two banks were more central to the network of placements and takings, as they were exposed to at least seven counterparties each.

The stress test revealed that the banking industry could withstand a shock of up to 75 per cent increase in the industry NPLs as the CAR remained above 10 per cent, while the industry was vulnerable to shocks above 100 per cent increase in NPLs, as the industry CAR fell below 10 per cent.

The breakdown of banking industry total credit by sector showed that the oil and gas sector accounted for 30.29 per cent, while manufacturing, government, general commerce, finance and insurance, and others accounted for 14.53 per cent, 6.02 per cent, 7.40 per cent, 6.42 per cent and 35.34 per cent respectively, at end-December 2018.
The results of the stress test for default in exposure to the oil and gas sector showed that the banking industry could withstand up to 50 per cent default as the post-shock CAR remained at 10.24 per cent.

Banks deny telco on USSD charges, services
By Adeyemi Adepetun and Oluwatosin Areo
22 October 2019   

[Image: Mobile-phone.jpg][FILES] Body of Bank CEOs, which was fingered in the whole process, issued a statement and denied asking MTN to start charging customers
The proposed but now suspended N4 per 20 seconds charge on unstructured supplementary service data (USSD) platforms for money transfer transactions in Nigeria, got another spanner thrown in its wheel, as bank chief executives, yesterday, dissociated themselves from the planned charges.
Specifically, the Body of Bank CEOs, which was fingered in the whole process, issued a statement and denied asking MTN to start charging customers.
The statement titled: “SMS (Short Message Service) From MTN Nigeria to Bank Customers in Nigeria on Use of USSD Code,” reads: “Our attention has been drawn to SMS sent on Saturday, October 19, by MTN Nigeria Communications PLC (“MTN”) to customers of banks in Nigeria in respect of the above.

“The message states that the banks requested MTN to start charging customers for USSD transactions directly. It also asks customers to contact their banks for more information. We wish to state as follows:
“That the banks did not ask MTN to start charging customers as contained in the text message. The decision on whether, and what amount, to charge a customer for accessing USSD is entire that of the telco company, in the same way, a customer is billed for calls, SMS, and data.
“MTN is the only Telco that is yet to implement end-user billing which is the standard practice for customer-initiated transactions. This is despite the fact that the banks, working with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), have engaged MTN over a period of more than one year to try and bring down the cost of USSD to aid financial inclusion.
“That the banks are determined to pursue the National Financial Inclusion Strategy of the Federal Government of Nigeria and will continue to advocate that Telcos identify wholeheartedly with this laudable initiative and implement transparent and low pricing model in the use of USSD access codes.
“We wish to reiterate that financial transaction charges are regulated by the CBN as stipulated in the Bankers Tariff and that the charges for financial transactions carried out with banks remain unchanged.”
The planned additional charges became a national issue, weekend when MTN notified its over 60 million customers in Nigeria of the plan to charge N4 for USSD services. The message read: “Please note that from Oct. 21, we will charge N4 per 20 seconds for USSD access to banking services. Please, contact your bank for more info. Thank you.”
The matter heated up the polity in the last 24 hours and elicited swift responses from both the telecoms and banking industry. While the Minister of Communications, Dr. Isa Pantami, had asked the Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), to suspend the plan, until a proper briefing from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), also asked Nigerians to disregard such messages.

Meanwhile, MTN confirmed that it has directed a stay-of-action on the charges, as directed by the Federal Government.
It, however, noted that although it has suspended it, the proposed charge of N4 per 20-second session is currently the lowest in the industry, as other network operators currently charge above that rate.
According to MTN, other network providers implemented these charges a long time ago without notifying their subscribers; the banks still deduct an average of N50 for USSD transactions despite the fact that the infrastructure for such transactions is provided and maintained by the network operators.
MTN noted that it would be nice to ascertain if other network service providers have complied with the government’s directive as MTN has done.
Rising in defense of MTN, the Association of Licensed Telecom Operators of Nigeria (ALTON), noted that the N4.00 charges as determined by the NCC, the telecom industry regulator.
ALTON, through its Administrative Secretary, Gbolahan Awonuga, noted that the determination of the USSD charges started via a study conducted by the regulator in 2017, and by May 2019, the determination was issued.

The study on USSD, he disclosed was conducted by the NCC and industry working group (IWG), after the CBN set up a committee that was made up of members from the Bankers’ Committee.
In reaction to the Minister’s suspension of the plan, ALTON insisted that the issue being discussed is not policy, but commercial, to which the CBN also described as an embedded cost for telcos and not a fresh investment that should be passed down to consumers.
“We are confusing regulation with policy. There was a determination on this USSD, even before the appointment of the Minister,” Gbolahan explained during an interaction in a WhatsApp Group.
He argued that the CBN is protective of the banks, but wondered why the telecom operators cannot be protected. “It is not about the good boy, but this is commercial, and the normal things have been done. Operators did not come up overnight to charge N4. It was deliberated upon and a decision taken,” he stressed.
Speaking with The Guardian, Gbolahan said there was no formal letter from the bank’s CEO to the effect that they have withdrawn from the plan, “Mind you, this is a study that we started since 2017. We had also argued that from the N50 they are charging for each transaction, why can’t they consider the consumers and give telcos part of the money? If you take N46, the telcos will take N4, but they don’t want to part with any money at all. But they forgot that this service rides on telecoms infrastructure.

“As I said, this is a commercial dealing, if you are not comfortable with operator A charging N4, you can go to other operators charging a lower rate. Telcos are not a charitable organisation; they are also in business to make money. If the banks are charging with any infrastructure on the ground, the telcos too should be able to charge.”

HOUSTON -- Javier Morales scored three times to lead Real Salt Lake past a 10-man Houston Dynamo 5-2 Sunday night to extend their unbeaten streak to 10 games to start the season. Mike Shawaryn Jersey . Alvaro Saborio added a goal, and Luke Mulholland scored late in the second half for Salt Lake (5-0-5). Mark Sherrod scored twice for Houston (4-5-2), which had its three-game unbeaten streak snapped. Morales gave Salt Lake a 1-0 lead just 15 seconds into the match, settling a Saborio pass and firing inside the upper left post. The goal was the quickest scored in Real Salt Lake history and fourth-fastest in MLS history. New Yorks Tim Cahill scored the fastest goal in MLS history 7 seconds in against Houston on Oct. 23, 2013. Morales scored again in the 17th minute to make it 2-0. Off a corner kick, Ned Grabavoy sent a header from the upper box toward the goalkeepers box where Morales deflected it with his right foot high into the net. Morales added his third goal in the 89th minute on a penalty kick, delaying and then hitting his shot inside the near post as Tally Hall went to his right. Salt Lake earned the penalty kick after Hall pulled down Devon Sandoval in the box. Sherrod cut the lead in half in the 22nd minute with his first professional goal. Off a Brad Davis corner kick, Sherrod headed it inside the near post. Saborio upped the lead to 3-1 in the 32nd minute with a sliding header from the right box that found the net off a cross from Mulholland. Sherrod cut the lead to 3-2 in the 56th minute, slicing a shot from the left box just inside the near post and past the hands of a diving Nick Rimando after a Salt Lake turnover. Mulholland extended the lead back to two in the 78th minute, taking a Morales pass in the upper box, getting around a sliding Hall and sending one in the empty net from the right box. Houston earned a penalty kick in the 35th minute as Aaron Maund pushed David Horst down in the box off a corner kick. However, Rimando saved Giles Barnes penalty kick attempt, diving to his right to make the stop, preserving Salt Lakes lead. Houston played the final 63 minutes a man down after Servando Carrasco was given a straight red card by referee Allen Chapman in the 27th minute for a hard sliding tackle on Grabavoy.

I had a great time here. It was very different from last year as an alternate. Fortunately I was able to play well in my last event (Paris) to qualify here and give myself opportunities. I wish I could have competed, but it is what it is.Six-time champion Roger Federer will take on Andy Murray in the other Group B match. If the 17-time Grand Slam champion beats Murray and Nishikori defeats Ferrer, then the Scot will be eliminated from the indoor event.Also Thursday, Torontos Daniel Nestor and Serbian partner Nenad Zimonjic signed off on their doubles partnership with a 6-7 (5), 6-3, 11-9 win over Spaniards Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez. Nestor and Zimonjic improved to 1-2 but did not qualify for a spot in the weekend semifinals. Ferrer, who trained in London this week, has no chance of making it to the singles semifinals.At the Paris Masters last month, he saw his hopes of qualifying for the Finals vanish after losing a tough battle to Nishikori in the quarter-finals. The Spaniard came within two points of victory but failed to hold on to his lead.Raonic, from Thornhill, Ont., said he was looking forward to facing Nishikori, who had won four of their five meetings.This experience this week motivates me a lot, hee said. Darwinzon Hernandez Jersey. I felt I did pretty well, but know I can do a lot better. My season has been consistent, but I would have liked to have had a few more chances to win big matches.I really badly wanted to play, the competition here is about facing the best and being on top of your game.The eighth-ranked Raonic said it came down to weighing the merits of playing at half-speed and risking further injury or ending his season with prudence.It would be unfair to fans if I were to step out there and play a mediocre match all way through or if things got worse and I had to stop, Raonic said. The doctors said that if I were to play Id be walking a tightrope.That was a factor in my decision, I didnt want to accept it, but I had to listen to the doctors and my team.Raonic, one of the three newcomers in London with Marin Cilic and Nishikori, picked up his sixth career singles title with a victory at The Citi Open in Washington last August. A month earlier, he reached a career-high No. 6 in the world rankings.Raonic made his first French Open quarter-final appearance this year and also advanced to the semifinals at Wimbledon for the first time.Nestor and Zimonjic, two-time champions at this event, will team up with different players next season. The 42-year-old Nestor is tabbed to play with Indias Rohan Bopanna.The Nestor-Zimonjic duo closed out their second run as partners with a flourish, mounting a comeback in the match tiebreak by winning six straight points. They saved a match point before Zimonjic came through with two straight volley winners for the victory.They entered the match with a slim chance of reaching the semifinal round and were officially eliminated from contention when they dropped the first set.Any time you win a match, its more good than bad, said Nestor. We had our chances in the opening set, that will make today a bit tougher to remember. But in the last match of the season we played well, thats all you can ask.There were still ranking points at stake. I thought I was playing well and Ziggy was playing well also.———With files from The Associated Press. ' ' '

  SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco Giants needed four innings to figure out Clevelan

SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco Giants needed four innings to figure out Cleveland starter Zach McAllister. Fake Air Max 90 . Hunter Pence hit a two-run single in San Franciscos four-run fifth, leading the Giants to a 5-3 victory over the Indians on Saturday. "That one inning, it just got contagious," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. McAllister (3-1) retired 12 in a row before Michael Morse led off the fifth with a single to centre. Morse advanced to third on Brandon Crawfords one-out single and scored on Gregor Blancos pinch-hit single that came on a first-pitch fastball. "Coming off the bench, its not that easy to do," Blanco said. "In that situation to get a pinch hit and drive one in ... you just got to be aggressive." Angel Pagan had a sacrifice fly before Pences two-out hit gave the Giants a 4-3 lead. McAllister left after Brandon Belt struck out to end the inning. He allowed five hits, struck out six and walked one after winning his previous three starts. Buster Posey added a solo homer in the sixth as San Francisco earned its third consecutive win. Posey, who won the NL MVP award in 2012, went 1 for 3 and is batting .103 (4 for 39) over his last 13 games. "I was happy for Buster," Bochy said. "You go through these tough streaks and its not easy." Giants starter Tim Lincecum lasted just 4 2-3 innings, but managed to lower his ERA to 5.96. He was charged with three runs, two earned, and nine hits. "We did a really good job of making (Lincecum) work," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. "We just werent able to get that one more hit to tack on." Lincecum has pitched just 25 2-3 innings in five starts in his first season since he signed a $35 million, two-year contract over the winter. "I had my game plan. I just wasnt executing it," Lincecum said. "That kind of exacerbated the feeling of hopelessness, I guess. Well, not hopelessness, but just things arent going right. Fix that tomorrow." But San Francisco continued to get strong work from its bullpen. Juan Gutierrez (1-1), Jean Machi, Jeremy Affeldt and Sergio Romo combined for 4 1-3 hitless innings after Lincecum departed. Romo got three outs for his sixth save in six chances as San Franciscos bullpen lowered its MLB-best home ERA to 0.45 in 11 games. "Very impressive," Bochy said. "They won the game for us today with the job they did." Bochy went out of his way to praise Gutierrez for striking out Yan Gomes with the bases loaded to end the fifth inning. Michael Bourn, Nick Swisher and David Murphy had two hits apiece for Cleveland. Jason Kipnis drove in two runs. Cleveland scored in the first, third and fifth to build a 3-0 lead. Kipnis singled in Bourn in the first and drove in Swisher with a grounder in the third. Swisher doubled home Bourn in the fifth. Saturday marked the 257th straight regular-season sellout at AT&T Park, matching the National League record set by the Philadelphia Phillies from July 7, 2009 to Aug. 5, 2012. Up next on the MLB sellout streak list is the Indians, who sold out Jacobs Field 455 times from June 12, 1995 to April 2, 2001. NOTES: The Giants have now started off interleague play with two consecutive wins against the Indians after going 6-14 in 2013, the second-worst mark in MLB. ... McAllister registered his first career hit in the second inning with a single to right field. ... Giants Hall of Famer Willie Mays helped escort 3-year-old Cody Harrington to the mound to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. ... Right-handers Ryan Vogelsong (0-1, 7.71 ERA) of San Francisco and Danny Salazar (0-3, 7.85 ERA) of Cleveland enter Sundays series finale in search of their first win of the year.

CEO Steve Koonin on Tuesday told the Hawks flagship radio station that he made the decision to discipline Ferry but allowed him to keep his job managing the team. He did not say what the punishment was, but noted that he relied on a law firms three-month investigation of Ferry and him describing Deng as someone who has a little African in him. . A judge had summoned Clemens and Brian McNamee to federal court in Brooklyn for settlement talks aimed at heading off a trial in the defamation case. McNamees lawyer emerged saying an agreement wasnt likely. "I think this is a case where the lines are deeply drawn in the sand," said attorney Richard Emery.CALGARY - On Tuesday Mark Giordano was told by Team Canada management that hes next in line for a spot at Sochi. Tonight hell face two other Canada defencemen in Jay Bouwmeester and Alex Pietrangelo as the St. Louis Blues visit the Scotiabank Saddledome. The Flames offensive struggles continued on Tuesday with a 6-0 road setback to the Phoenix Coyotes. Thomas Greiss stopped all 27 Calgary shots fired his way. It marked the fourth time in six games and fifth in the past 10 that the Flames have been shut out. Tuesdays loss came one night after Calgary notched a 4-3 win at Colorado. "They get the two breaks and then Phoenix just sat back and waited," Calgary coach Bob Harley said. "If you look at offense, they have more weapons that we do. Their top three lines can all score." Reto Berra was victimized for all six goals on 30 shots for the Flames, who have lost nine of their last 11. Calgary will play its next two at home, where it has lost four straight and has been outscored 10-1 in that span. Berra has been in net for both of the Flames previous games against the Blues this season, including a 3-2 loss in St. Louis back on Nov. 7. He made 32 saves in the shootout win in late December. It is unknown if Berra or Karri Ramo will start tonight. Ramo has faced the Blues just once before and that came back on March 6, 2009 while with Tampa Bay. He made 32 saves in an overtime setback. For their part, the Blues will be looking to grab a share of the Central Divisions top spot. The Blues have been on an impressive roll as of late, going 8-0-1 in their last nine games overall and 11-1-2 since a loss to Anaheim on Dec. 7. St. Louis notched a road victory in Winnipeg three days later to start a current 6-0-2 surge as the visiting club. That is the longest point streak on the road for the Blues since a club-record 11-game run (10-0-1) from Jan. 21, 1999-March 4, 2000. St. Louiss kicked off a three-game trip on Tuesday night with a season-high sixth straight victory, besting the Edmonton Oilers 5-2. Cheap Air Max 97 From China. The Blues scored three times in the second period, with David Backes power-play goal in the frame the difference. Chris Stewart, Maxim Lapierre, Vladimir Tarasenko and Patrik Berglund also scored for the Blues, while Brian Elliott needed to make only 16 saves to win his seventh straight decision. "They played us pretty hard for the first half of the game before we got a power-play goal that allowed us to lock down the hatches after that," said Backes of his 17th tally of the season that came with 9:04 to play in the second period. Tuesdays win marked the quickest the Blues have ever reached the 30-win plateau in franchise history as they did so in their 42nd game of 2013-14. They will next try to win seven straight for the first time since Oct. 22-Nov. 7, 2010. A win would also move St. Louis into a tie with the idle Chicago Blackhawks atop the Central Division. The Blues, though, could be without forward T.J. Oshie after he had to be helped off the ice late in Tuesdays win following a knee-on-knee hit with the Oilers Taylor Hall. Oshie, who has 29 assists and 37 points in 42 games this season, is day-to-day. St. Louis will close out its road trip in Vancouver tomorrow night and Elliott is expected to start that contest. That means that Jaroslav Halak will make his first start tonight since allowing three goals on 13 shots through just 20 minutes of action on Dec. 28 versus Chicago. Halak, who also has recently been battling illness, is 3-5-1 with a 2.66 goals against average in nine career starts versus the Flames. He faced them recently on Dec. 23 in Calgary, making 26 saves in a 4-3 shootout loss. The Blues have still won six of their last nine versus the Flames, but have lost five of its past seven in Calgary. ' ' '

'' If Sowore was Igbo, he would have been out by now''- Reno Omokri

[Image: 5dae8f73365a6.PNG]

Reno Omokri is of the opinion that unlike other ethnic tribes, the Igbos are communal and would have rallied round to fulfill the terms and conditions of publisher and activist, Omoyele Sowore's bail.
Recall that Sowore who is standing trial for treasonable charges filed against him by the Federal government, was in court yesterday October 21st where the judge revealed that no one has come forward to stand as his surety for his bail conditions to be fulfilled.
Reacting to this development, Reno Omokri via a post shared on his Instagram page, said the bail conditions for IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, were more stringent than Sowore's, but they were all met because the Igbos rallied round for one of their own. Read his post below

Quote: Despite the stringent bail conditions set for Nnamdi Kanu, Igbos wasted no time fulfilling it. Sowore’s bail terms are nowhere near as tough as Nnamdi Kanu’s, yet no one has stood for him. Yet, while he was in detention and court, many people were talking tough in his defence. It just tells you a lot about Igbo communal spirit as compared to other ethnic nationalities. If Sowore was Igbo, he would have been out of jail by now.
An Igbo Senator, Enyinnaya Abaribe, risked jail, put his Senatorial office on the line, to stand as surety for Kanu. Are you trying to tell me that none of Sowore’s kinsmen have ordinary ?50 million? I am yet to see a people who love themselves like the Igbo.
In America, believe it or not, Igbo unions give new comers loans to set up their own businesses. I have seen news stories of destitute Nigerians abroad who need assistance. That can never happen to an Igbo. Other Igbos in that community will rally round and rehabilitate him or her. Let us all learn that self love from Ndi’Igbo and Nigeria will be better for it'' he wrote

FG sent 150 Nigerians to China to study railway engineering - Amaechi

[Image: 5dae8fffd2ff0.jpg]

The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi on Monday October 21, announced that the Federal Government has sent over 150 Nigerians to Chinese universities to study railway engineering. 
Amaechi who disclosed this while defending his Ministry's budget before the National Assembly’s joint committee on marine transport, said the aim of sending these Nigerians to China is for the maintenance and sustainability of trains in Nigeria. 

Quote:“On maintenance and sustainability, if you check the picture of my trip to China, you will see some black men with the Chinese. I told them they learned from America and you copied the Americans in producing your coaches, because when I went there, they were teaching them leadership and managing resources.
“I told them, let’s not manage, tell us how you built these trains so that when it breaks down, we don’t have to make a telephone call for you to come down and fix it. So we have agreed to design a curriculum and train all these people out there.
“Secondly, we have sent over 150 persons, children, to two universities in China, funded by the Chinese government to go and read railway engineering. We hope that in four years they will graduate. Those who will do masters and PhD will do that. We are establishing a transportation university in Daura. We are making sure that we have manpower to take over from the Chinese. We are trying to localise railway technology,” he said.
On railway safety, the former Governor of Rivers State said; 
Quote:“The first thing we address about railway is safety because once it happens, a lot of persons will die. Each coach for now contains 87 persons, if we multiply it by 10 coaches, imagine the amount of persons that will die. No driver will move if there is a safety problem. It is the same thing with our tracks. We watch our tracks.
“Someone told me that he saw on social media that they shot at the train. I didn’t reply because that is not true. There are air force planes following the train as it is going. There is a police vehicle on the side. There are policemen in the vehicle and when anything happens, they report to the minister even when there is a stop.”

Exam Malpractice: Vice-Chancellor of UI hands over six officials to DSS

[Image: 5dae43ee956f1.PNG]

Prof Idowu Olayinka, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, has handed over six officials of its Distance Learning Center to the Department of the State Security over examination malpractice.  
The officials were arrested on Friday, October 18th and were remanded in the custody of the DSS before they were released on Monday, October 21st on administrative bail.  
Investigation revealed that the officials allegedly smuggled scripts into the exam hall to students, forged Computer Based Test results; and falsified clearance mostly for students who have student disciplinary cases among others.  
Confirming the development on Monday evening, the Director DLC UI center, Prof Soji Aremu, said that some staff of the centre compromised in helping some students during examination.

Quote:“It was the management that caught them and handed them over to the DSS, for us to have the full report. They have been released on administrative bail after owing up to the crime committed. It is a plus to the management for fishing out the bad eggs and handing them over for the law to take its full course,’’ he said.
Tunji Oladejo, the Director of Communications, UI, also said when it happened, the director of UI DLC alerted the VC who ordered the arrest of the culprits.  
“Officials of the DSS were invited to effect the arrests. They were found indulging in examination malpractices. The Vice-Chancellor called on the DSS to engage in rigorous investigation and diligent prosecution to serve as a deterrent to others,” Oladejo added.

Plane stuck in mud for two days after skidding off the runway at Kenyan Airport (photos/video)

[Image: 5dae97f420ad1.jpg]

An airplane has been stuck in mud for two days at Takaba airstrip in Kenya, after skidding off the airport's runway during takeoff. 
The airplane owned by Radufu Air had dropped off passengers at Takaba airstrip on Sunday evening and was bound for Mandera when it skidded off the runway. 30 passengers on board the airplane have been evacuated as effort to pull it out of the mud was futile.

The incident has been blamed on the poorly maintained airstrip. Mandera West deputy county commissioner Kipkoech Labatt who confirmed the incident, said there are plans to bring in a tractor to pull out the jet after earlier efforts of using a police car failed.

Quote:“All the passengers are safe and they will fly to Mandera once the plane is pulled out of the mud,” he said.

Schaubs last action in Houston came when he took over late in a game against Oakland on Nov. 17 as Keenum was struggling.FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - These are dark days for Rex Ryan and the New York Jets.Ryan is a coach with an uncertain future, and that means beyond even Sundays game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jets will go on their bye-week break at this time next week and speculation has started that they could say bye-bye to their coach.After all, the Jets (1-8) are searching for answers and, more importantly, victories in a season marked by eight straight losses that has a disappointed fanbase already thinking about the NFL draft and next year.Our fans, I recognize their frustrations, Ryan said Monday, and its probably not easy to be a Jets fan right now.After a 24-10 loss at Kansas City on Sunday, this group of Jets became the third in franchise history to lose eight consecutive games. The last time was in 1996, when New York finished 1-15 under Rich Kotite, a season widely recognized as the worst — and most embarrassing — in team history.Before that, the 1975 Jets dropped eight straight on their way to a 3-11 season.Yep, those were tough times, too.But nine straight losses? It has never been done in the history of the franchise.Its just a stat, man, defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson said. We didnt want to lose eight straight, so we most definitely dont want to go nine.But talk about bad timing.Up next for the Jets, dealing with a shaky secondary situation all season, are the Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger, who is coming off becoming the first player in NFL history to throw 12 touchdown passes in a two-game stretch, with six in each.Nah, no concerns, Ryan said, almost rolling his eyes. I mean, when you look at it realistically, obviously, it is a huge concern. Theyre on fire right now.And, quite frankly, the Jets are the complete opposite.Picked by many before the season to hover between seven and nine wins and be in the playoff hunt, the Jets will be hard-pressed to win three or four games.We didnt expect to be in this position, said quarterback Michael Vick, wholl start against the Steelers. Obviously, coming into the year, you set high expectations and we had a lot of goals and to be one of the best teams in the league. To be in this position is very shocking.Some disgruntled season ticketholders set up a website last week called, dedicated to urging owner Woody Johhnson to part ways with the teams general manager. Alen Smailagic Jersey. The site has raised $10,000 to buy space on a billboard near MetLife Stadium to further their cause.Idzik is feeling the heat, maybe even more than anyone else in the organization, because of the perception that he did little to provide Ryan with a roster that could be successful.Angry fans point to the lack of depth at cornerback, failed draft picks — only five of the 12 from last May are on the active roster — and the failure of Geno Smith to prove himself as a franchise-type quarterback.Ryan is not without blame, though, with in-game decisions and his once mighty defence failing to be dominant key strikes against him. Some fans and media believe its not a question of if, but when Johnson will cut ties with Ryan — and very possibly Idzik.If the Jets owner comes to that conclusion, it probably would be after the regular-season finale in Miami in December, but Ryan insists hes not thinking of that.I dont look past Pittsburgh, Ryan said defiantly. I know my opportunity is to be a head coach right now and Im going to do the best job I possibly can do for this football team, and to give us a chance to be successful.When Ryan was hired in 2009, he was a breath of fresh air to a stale franchise. He was a brash, bold media darling who commanded attention because no one knew what he might say or do.He restored the Jets to relevance on a national level, leading the franchise to consecutive trips to the AFC title game in his first two years.But, Ryan has toned things down a bit, and its understandable, considering the Jets are looking at their fourth straight season out of the post-season. Thats hardly a stretch that guarantees hell be back next season, and Ryan knows it.Well, 1-8, we all get it, Ryan said. I understand it, but the season is not over. You judge by when the season is over and you make up your own mind. But I know one thing: It isnt going to be by lack of effort, lack of passion, lack of anything.The results arent there yet, certainly they arent there yet, and thats not acceptable to anybodys standard, certainly not mine. So again, we have a lot of season left and I think our football team is going to play a lot better.___AP NFL websites: and ' ' '

Lady attacked by 3 women for sleeping with a married taxi driver identified (video)

[Image: 5daea2590c0ab.png]

Few days ago, a video of a South African lady being attacked by some women for sleeping with a married taxi driver in Pharare village of Limpopo went viral on social media. 
The 20-year-old grade 11 student who was assaulted outside the school yard by three women for allegedly “wrecking a marriage”, has been identified as Dolly Maila. 
Speaking to Sowetan, the student who suffered bruises on her upper body and thighs said the incident occurred on Thursday October 17. Maila said she was attacked by three women who pulled her braids and also struck her with fists and a stick. 
[Image: 5dae9e4ee29e6.jpg]
The student distanced herself from the “home-wrecker” tag she was given on social media, while revealing she was on her way to the tuckshop just outside the school when she was approached by the three women who demanded to talk to her.

Quote:“It’s not true that I’m a home-wrecker, I ended the relationship with the woman’s husband after I discovered he was married. The relationship ended late last month after I received threatening SMSes from an unknown lady who told me to stop seeing the taxi driver because he is married or they will deal with me.
“Before they could state their concerns, all of them started attacking me, saying I should stay away from their friend’s husband,” she said.
[Image: 5dae9ec34f44f.jpg]
Even with the viral video, Maila said she was told by the police that there was not enough evidence to prosecute the women that assaulted and left her with pains on her neck, back and thighs.
Quote:“I’m not happy with the police because I went to open a case the same day and one of the female police officers told me that if I was dating her husband, she would have killed me. She said I deserve to be killed because I’m breaking people’s marriages" she added. 
[Image: 5dae9ee52322a.jpg]
In the viral video, wife of the taxi driver was seen hitting Maila in the face while saying “Do you know I’m a married woman and you are breaking my marriage. I have been meaning to talk to you but you refused.”
Another woman was heard shouting “beat her my friend”. The taxi driver's wife continued hitting the student saying: “You were born in 2001 and there is no way you can date a 40-year-old man. You are mad, I can’t leave my marriage because of you.”
Maila was also whipped on the back with a stick by a woman that wore a red dress in the viral video. 
Here is the viral video below; 
Quote:Apparently this happened in Limpopo, Mopani Region, Tzaneen municipality. These two women were assaulting this girl cause according to them she is dating a man married to one of them.

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God (Acts 20:24).

Our opening verse above is as inspiring as it is instructive. It reveals the kind of mindset you must have in the face of adversities. 2 Timothy 3:12 says, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.”

When you’re effective in the things of God, there’re those who’ll surely criticize you and say demeaning things about you. However, you must remain undaunted. Refuse to allow their criticisms or malicious acts quench your zeal for the Lord and His work. Remain focused and afire for the Lord and keep doing what He’s called you to do.

You’re a city set on a hill that can’t be hidden (Matthew 5:14); that means you’re supposed to attract attention. While there’re those who’ll be inspired by your passion and commitment to the Lord, some may despise you for it; but it makes no difference. Just keep serving the Lord, and faint not.

The opinions of others about you don’t count; you should only be concerned about the Lord and His Word concerning you. He doesn’t want you bothered about the challenges that come your way. Rather, He says, “Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations” (James 1:2 AMPC).

Like the Apostles in the early Church, relish every opportunity to be criticized or persecuted for your commitment to Jesus Christ. It’s an indication that you’re effective and making remarkable progress in the direction of His calling for your life. The Bible tells us that after the apostles were beaten and threatened, they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for Jesus’ sake (Acts 5:40-41).

Even the Lord Jesus was criticized by the Scribes, Pharisees and Sadducees, but He was unmoved. As you diligently serve the Lord, Satan will stir up trouble against you, but like the Apostle Paul, declare, “None of these things move me,” and keep pressing on from glory to glory. Amen.


Blessed Father, you’re everything to me; knowing you more and serving you with my life is all that my heart beats for. Thus, it makes no difference what adversities may come my way, I’m unruffled, knowing that in you I have victory. I’m more than a conqueror, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.


Isaiah 50:7 TLB; Acts 20:18-24
1 Timothy 4:1-16 & Jeremiah 11-12

John 7:1-10 & 2 Kings 9




Dear Father, thank You for the revelation of Your Word that confirms indeed that the glory of the latter is greater than that of the former, as evidenced by the miracles that are wrought today by Your Spirit, through faith in the Name of Jesus.

I am properly positioned to experience the greater and, mighty move of the Spirit in my day and will do wonders in my world.

I rule, reign and dominate my world today by the faith of God in my spirit! My faith is alive and producing results today because the Word of God is in my heart and in my mouth, and as I speak it forth, circumstances align with the Father's perfect will for my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

God bless you

Để từ ấy phân tách cách thi đấu cũng như kĩ năng chơi bóng của các cầu thủ, tìm ra điểm hay, điểm yếu trong khoảng ấy chốt hạ đội mình muốn đặt cược để nắm chắc phần thắng.
Hơn thế nữa, cũng cần Đánh giá các thông báo tác động ở bên ngoài trận đấu, thí dụ như thời tiết, hiện trạng làm việc của huấn luyện ...
Nên chọn đúng thời khắc mà đánh cược: trước lúc trận chiến bắt đầu hoặc trận chiến bắt đầu được vài phút vì lúc này sẽ có các thông tin chính xác nhất cũng như biến động tỷ lệ kèo cá cược.

các sự thay đổi nhỏ về tỷ lệ cá cược của nhà cái soi kèo vào trước giờ đấu chính là cái bẫy được đưa ra. Do vậy, giả dụ bạn soi kèo và quyết định chọn kèo trên thì nên cẩn thận vì kèo càng nháy về ở những phút cuối trận đấu thì nguy cơ lọt bẫy sẽ tăng cường nếu tâm lý các bạn không bền lâu.

Dino Melaye VS Smart Adeyemi: INEC releases date for fresh election

[Image: 5dae05ee89926.PNG]

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has released the date for the fresh Kogi West Senatorial election involving Senator Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and Senator Smart Adeyemi of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
INEC, in a statement signed Festus Okoye, Chairman of its Information and Voter Committee, said that the senate election would hold simultaneously with the Kogi governorship election on 16 November, 2019.
Okoye, INEC National Commissioner, in a statement made available to newsmen on Monday in Abuja, said that another by-election for the Sabuwa State Constituency in Katsina State, had been slated for Nov. 30.  “The decision was taken at the commission’s meeting held on Monday,” the statement said.
He said that the fresh election was sequel to the nullification of the Kogi West Senatorial District election conducted on Feb. 23, by the Election Petitions Tribunal and its subsequent affirmation by the Court of Appeal. The Court of Appeal had upheld the ruling of the Election Petitions Tribunal which nullified the election of Sen. Dino Melaye (PDP), following a suit filed by Sen. Smart Adeyemi of the APC.
The Appeal Court, on Oct. 11, 2019, ordered INEC to conduct a fresh election within 90 days from the date of judgment with all those who participated in it as eligible candidates. Okoye appealed to the candidates and political parties to conduct issue-based campaigns.  “We also enjoin stakeholders to eschew violence and avoid acts capable of creating apprehension or a sense of fear before, during and after the elections,’’ he said.
Okoye also disclosed that following extensive consultations with stakeholders and a review of the security situation with the relevant security agencies, the Commission fixed Nov. 30 for the conduct of bye-election in Sabuwa State Constituency, Katsina State. He recalled that the Katsina State House of Assembly, vide a letter with Reference Number KTSHA/PER/HON/l24/VOL.l/24, dated Sept. 26, notified INEC of the death of Mustapha Abdullahi, who represented the constituency, and and subsequently declared the seat vacant.
He said that the Commission would issue the Notice of Election on Oct. 23, while the conduct of party primaries would take place between Oct. 24 and Nov. 6. According to Okoye, the last day for the submission of personal particulars of candidates (form CF001), and the list of candidates (Form CFOO2), is Nov. 8. “The last day for the submission of names and addresses of polling agents is Nov. 15, while campaigns will end on Nov. 28,” he said.

Nigerian pastor, Timothy Omotosho’s sexual assault trial in South Africa postponed again

[Image: 5dade95d5d009.PNG]

The trial of Nigerian pastor, Timothy Omotoso in South Africa for sexual assault suffered fresh hiccup on Monday, October 21st as his defence attorney said Omotoso would approach the highest court in the country, in a fresh appeal.  
The embattled Nigerian pastor failed in his appeal at the Supreme Court of Appeal against a Port Elizabeth judge’s decision to allow the trial to be heard in the court. On Monday, state prosecutor Nceba Ntelwa told Judge Irma Schoeman that the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) had dismissed Omotoso’s application to appeal her decision to have the trial heard in Port Elizabeth.
Ntelwa said the state was ready to begin the case. But Omotoso’s lawyer Peter Daubermann said that in the interest of justice, his clients’ instructions were to bring an application to appeal the SCA’s judgment to the Constitutional Court. “My instructions are to apply for a postponement to allow my clients to exercise these rights,” Daubermann said.
He told the court on Monday that he anticipated he needed at least two weeks to prepare the application for the appeal to the Constitutional Court. Schoeman postponed the matter till November 21. Omotoso and his two accomplices, Lusanda Sulani, 36, and Zukiswa Sitho, 28 are facing multiple counts ranging from human trafficking to rape and sexual assault.  
They are yet to take a plea. Omotoso has been remanded in prison. It was the second time Omotoso, 60, and his co-accused, had lost a petition to the Supreme Court of Appeal. It was also the umpteenth time the case will suffer some adjournment.  In its judgment, the SCA ruled that the application for leave to appeal Schoeman’s decision was dismissed on the grounds that there were no reasonable prospects of success, and that there was no other compelling reason why an appeal should be heard.
In August, defence attorney for Omotoso and his co-accused, Peter Daubermann, argued that the Port Elizabeth high court did not have the authority to hear the entire matter as some of the alleged offences took place elsewhere in the country and abroad. Daubermann claimed the authorisation certificate to centralise the case was invalid as some of the alleged offences took place outside the court’s jurisdiction..

I stand by my words, Boko Haram has been technically defeated - Lai Mohammed

[Image: 5dae01630c2cf.jpg]

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has stated that he still stands by his 2015 claim of Boko Haram being technically defeated. 
Lai Mohammed who spoke during a working visit to the new corporate headquarters of “The Sun” Newspaper in Lagos on Monday October 21, said that what Nigeria is currently fighting is global terrorism where you have the ISIS, ISWAP and Al-qaeda all working together.

Quote:“I stand by what I said that Boko Haram is technically defeated.
“What we are having today is global terrorism where you have the ISIS, ISWAP Al-qaeda all working together.
“Terrorism is a global issue. Between 2009 and 2015 we were fighting Boko Haram, but today we are fighting global terrorism where the remnants of the Army in Syria are now joining hands with the ISWAP and others,” he said.
He also disclosed that he made the claim of Boko Haram being technically defeated based on what he saw after leading a team of local and international journalists to the epicentre of insurgency in 2015.
Quote:“I was on ground in Bama, Konduga and Maiduguri and I know what I saw before I made that claim.
“We are fighting global terrorism and that is why we are appealing to our foreign partners, especially the UN and our neighbours.
“By the time we get more platforms and the new helicopters that are being expected there will be tremendous improvement" Lai said.

Man sentenced to 5 years imprisonment for threatening to kill Donald Trump's son and in-law

                                   [Image: 5dadeb48eadfa.jpg]

Chase Bliss Colasurdo, a 27 year old man from Seattle, US, has been given a 5 year jail term for making threats against President Donald Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr,  and his in-law Jared Kushner. 
                        [Image: 5dadeb6b5fafe.jpeg]
Chase who has a history of mental illness and suffers from paranoid illusions, was arrested by the Secret Service for posting a photo of a gun pointed at the head of Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner on social media and also making direct death threats at Trump's son Donald Trump Jr. He also made vile online threats at several media figures and worship centers.
Chase bought ammunition, a bullet proof vest but was denied when he wanted to buy a gun after he was flagged by the Secret service. 
               [Image: 5dadeb8b220a5.jpg]
Chase was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment over the weekend after pleading guilty in May to all charges levelled against him. His lawyer asked the court to give him a 1 year sentence with 5 years supervised house imprisonment and psychiatric care but his request was denied by the judge.

After the sentencing, U.S. Attorney Brian Moran speaking to reporters said the case highlights the "frightening intersection of mental illness and weapons."

Lagos State re-arraigns two medical doctors over alleged attempted murder of a 17-year-old patient

[Image: 5daddf2ebd3a2.PNG]

Two Medical doctors, a husband, and wife were yesterday re-arraigned by the Lagos State government before a Lagos High Court, sitting in Igbosere over the alleged attempted murder of a 17-year-old patient.
The defendants, Ejike and Grace Orji are facing a four-count charge bordering on attempted murder, causing grievous harm and negligent act causing harm, preferred against them by Lagos State. The duo, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Earlier, the Lagos State Prosecuting Counsel, Mr. Babatunde Sunmonu, told the court that the defendants committed the offence on July 26, 2018, at Excel Medical Centre in Dolphin Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos. Sunmonu said that the defendants attempted to murder a 17-year-old boy, one Somtochukwu Ezi-Ashi, by unlawfully causing grievous bodily harm to his left leg.
The prosecutor, the coupe caused grievous harm on the 17-year-old boy, by fixing a Plaster of Paris (POP) cast too tight on his leg without his consent nor that of his parents.

He said that the two doctors who were not orthopedic specialists, recklessly administered orthopedic medical treatment to the minor, from his upper thigh to his toes and deliberately refused to remove the said POP when requested to do so. Sunmonu also said that the defendants deliberately removed the POP in a manner that put the life of the boy at risk.
He further stated that the defendants unlawfully inflicted a wound to the left leg of the complainant “when they lacerated his toes with a saw blade and concealed the act”. According to him, the offence committed is contrary to and punishable under Sections 230, 245, 251 and 252 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
Counsel to the defendant, Mr. Olasupo Sashore  (SAN), urged the court to allow the defendants to enjoy the previous bail earlier granted them by the court. The prosecutor however objected to the bail application, saying attempted murder was not included in the previous charge, “with the severity of the offence of attempted murder, I oppose the bail application”. Justice Adedayo Akintoye, in her ruling, said “the previous bail is to continue forthwith, the defendants should ensure they appear in court for their trial. 
The Judge, however, adjourned the case until November 27 for trial. The defendants were on May 28 arraigned before the court on a three-count charge, they pleaded not guilty and were granted N500,000 bail each with two sureties each in like sum.
The couple were also first arraigned on August 31, 2018, in a Magistrates’ Court and were granted bail. However, the Director of Public Prosecutions issued legal advice that the case is transferred to the high court.

  Saraki Reacts As Court Orders The Forfeiture Of His Properties In Ikoyi

Posted by: Edoman - 10-21-2019, 09:34 PM - No Replies

Bukola Saraki took to his twitter page to react after Court Ordered Him To Forfeit His Properties In Ikoyi.

Quote:My attention has been drawn to an Order granted by a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos pursuant to an ex-parte application by

It is my belief that the Judge was misled into granting this Order and was not presented with the full position of the law or the facts

It is my belief that the Court was not informed of a pending Order of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja restraining @officialEFCC from taking any steps regarding the seizure of the property in question pending the determination of a suit filed before that Court.

I also believe that the Court was not made aware that the property in question formed part of the judgment of the Court given on July 6, 2018 where the Supreme Court declared that the source of funds for the purchase of the property was not illicit as claimed by the prosecution.

The Supreme Court specifically referred to No 17a McDonald Road, Ikoyi on pages 12, 13 and 26 of its judgment upholding the no-case submission made before the Code of Conduct Tribunal.

I am confident that once these facts and the declaration of the Supreme Court are brought before the Court, this Order will be vacated. My lawyers will be approaching the Court immediately to achieve this.

  For first time ever, rich Chinese outnumber wealthy Americans on rich list

For first time ever, rich Chinese outnumber wealthy Americans on rich list

[Image: 5dadb95953e06.PNG]

Swiss bank, Credit Suisse, has stated in its Global Wealth Report 2019 that the number of rich Chinese has surpassed the count of wealthy Americans for the first time as both countries keep churning out millionaires.
The Swiss bank’s annual wealth survey released on Monday, October 21st found 100 million Chinese ranked in the global top 10% as of the middle of this year versus 99 million in the United States.

Quote:“Despite the trade tension between the United States and China over the past 12 months, both countries have fared strongly in wealth creation, contributing $3.8 trillion and $1.9 trillion respectively,” said Nannette Hechler-Fayd’herbe, global head of economics and research at Credit Suisse CSGN.S. 
The ranks of the world’s millionaires have risen by 1.1 million to an estimated 46.8 million, collectively owning $158.3 trillion in net assets, 44% of the global total, the study found.  The United States added more than half of this number –675,000 new millionaires – to its sizeable stock.
A decline in average wealth in Australia largely due to exchange rates resulted in 124,000 fewer millionaires there, while Britain lost 27,000 and Turkey 24,000. The report estimates that 55,920 adults are worth at least $100 million and 4,830 have net assets above $500 million.  It forecast global wealth which increased 2.6% over the past year would rise by 27% over the next five years to $459 trillion by 2024. The number of millionaires would also grow over this period to almost 63 million.
The share of the world’s bottom 90% accounts for 18% of global wealth, compared to 11% in the 2000. “While it is too early to say wealth inequality is now in a downward phase, the prevailing evidence suggests that 2016 may have been the peak for the near future,” it said.
