Politics / Why Okorocha Erected Statue Of South African President In Imo
« on: October 18, 2017, 06:14:35 PM »

The executive governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, has spoken after being heavily criticized for erecting the statue of the South African President, Jacob Zuma in Owerri. The governor said the reason for erecting the statue was to encourage business relationship between the state and South Africa.

Read the press statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo;

“If it was in the days of PDP, Schools and Markets would have been shot down. And roads closed because President Zuma was coming. But none of such things was done because Rochas and his government have human face. “The PDP for the 12 years they held sway never attracted any meaningful visitor to the State except PDP NEC members who were coming to loot the State.

“And in case these “Galatians” do not know, if all we need to do to attract good things or investments to Imo is erecting statues, then, we have no option than to erect as many of such structures as possible. We owe no one apology. “Rochas made a promise to open the doors of Imo to the rest of the world, for good and he is doing that and we cannot be deterred by these enemies of our people.”

The governor explained that Zuma was in the state principally to sign a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, between the Jacob Zuma Educational Foundation and Rochas Foundation College of Africa.


The federal government has said that the Monkeypox virus outbreak has spread to 11 states in Nigeria with 74 suspected cases recorded.

The Minister of Health Prof. Isaac Adewole made the disclosure in Abuja on Wednesday when he briefed State House correspondents on the outcome of the meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC). The minister, who updated the Council on developments in respect of the outbreak, listed the affected States as Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Cross River, Delta, Ekiti, Enugu, Imo, Lagos, Nasarawa and Rivers as well as the FCT.

“The Council also received an update on the state of the public health of the nation. We informed the council about the latest development in respect of the Monkey Pox virus outbreak. So far as of today, there are 74 suspected cases in 11 states of the country.

“We have confirmed three from Bayelsa and 12 of the suspected cases from Bayelsa tested negative; four suspected cases from Lagos tested negative. We are still expecting the results of the other ones.

“We are also doing test at the African Centre of Excellence for Genomics of Infectious Diseases (ACEGID), Edeh, to really understand the genomics of this virus.

“Even when they are negative, the laboratory attendant should be able to tell us what exactly they are,’’ he said.

The minister also dismissed the assertion that the military was spreading Monkey Pox virus through vaccination.

Nigeria Denies Injecting Monkeypox Virus Through Free Medical Treatment

He said that the military was never involved in any vaccination in the country, adding that any vaccination must involve state governments and the Federal Ministry of Health.

“It is also important to dispel the rumour circulating in the country that the military is vaccinating people and trying to spread Monkey Pox across the country.

“The military is not involved in any vaccination exercise.

“And I must educate Nigerians about how vaccination campaigns are done. The Federal Government will take the lead but we do not conduct campaign without working with states.

“So, there is no way we will do a campaign without working with the states,’’ he said.

Foreign / Death Toll In Afghan Suicide Attacks Rises To 80
« on: October 18, 2017, 01:09:41 PM »

The death toll from two suicide and gun attacks on Afghan security forces in southeast Afghanistan has risen to 80 with nearly 300 wounded, officials said Wednesday, in the bloodiest day in the country in almost five months.

The deadliest of Tuesday’s assaults was on a police compound in the city of Gardez in Paktia province where Taliban militants disguised as police detonated three explosive-packed vehicles — including a truck and a Humvee — that cleared the way for 11 gunmen to enter.

At least 60 people, including Paktia police chief Toryalai Abdyani and civilians waiting to collect documents, were killed in the blasts and ensuing battle that lasted around five hours, Gardez deputy director of health Hedayatullah Hamidi told AFP.

Some 236 people were also wounded in the assault, he added.

“The first checkpoint for the compound was blown up by a truck bomb. Two other vehicles then entered the compound — one detonated near the second checkpoint and the other rammed into the police chief’s office that killed the police chief and his bodyguards,” said Paktia governor spokesman Abdullah Hasrat.

The militants had been wearing police uniforms and carrying fake police identification, Hasrat said — a common tactic used by insurgents to gain entry to government and security installations.

Police spokesman Sardar Wali Tabasum said two members of the security forces had been arrested in connection with the attack, suggesting the assailants had insider help.

“We think the Taliban took these vehicles (a Humvee and a police pickup truck) when Jani Khel district fell to them in August,” Tabasum told AFP. Jani Khel is about 50 kilometres (30 miles) east of Gardez.

In the second attack in the neighbouring province of Ghazni, some 100 kilometres west of Gardez, the official death toll was lowered to 20, including 15 members of the security forces and five civilians, Ghazni governor spokesman Haref Noori told AFP.

The number of wounded stood at 46.

That assault followed a similar pattern involving insurgents detonating an explosives-laden Humvee near a police headquarters then storming the building, Noori said. Six attackers were killed.

An earlier toll had put the number of dead at 30 with 10 injured.

It was the deadliest day in Afghanistan since May 31 when a truck packed with 1,500 kilogrammes of explosives detonated in the diplomatic quarter of the capital Kabul, killing around 150 and wounding hundreds more, mostly civilians.

Kabul police foiled an even larger truck bomb on Saturday — 2,700 kilogrammes of explosives stashed under boxes of tomatoes — that would have caused carnage had it exploded.

Less than two days later authorities seized a car driving towards Kabul that was carrying 300 kilogrammes of explosives.



The eye-watering bonus football star Neymar is to receive from Paris Saint-Germain if he wins the Ballon d’Or has been revealed. Paris Saint-Germain will reportedly pay the Brazilian attacker a huge bonus if he wins the Ballon d’Or in December. The 25-year-old player who became the world’s most expensive player after PSG £199million record signing from Barcelona, is on the 30-man shortlist to land the prize.

According to French outlet Le Parisien , Neymar will pocket €3million (£2.6m), should he beat out the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to the prize. The bonus equates to a whole month’s net pay for Neymar.

Neymar came third in voting the award in 2015, behind Messi and Ronaldo who between them have won the trophy every year since Kaka claimed the prize in 2007.

The Brazilian forward left Barcelona for the French club in the summer and has been in an impressive form for Unai Emery’s side, scoring eight goals and notching seven assists in his first nine games.


The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) has suspended its protracted strike action.

“We have suspended the strike and lectures will resume on Monday. But the detail will be stated in our press statement which will be issued very soon,” the ASUU Chairman in the university, Dr Biodun Olaniran, told The Punch in Osogbo on Tuesday.

With this, students of the institution will now return to their classrooms on Monday for the first time in six months. The students have not resumed academic activities since April when they concluded their 2016/17 first semester examinations.

This is after workers of LAUTECH had gone on strike on June 2 over poor funding by the two owner states of the university, Oyo and Osun.

In September, the management of LAUTECH had directed the lecturers, workers and the students of the university to resume after over eight months’ forced holiday.

After the directive, the workers’ unions in the university said they were not aware of the resumption of the institution, which was then scheduled for Friday, September 15, and as such would not obey the directive of the university authorities.

However, confirming the development, the Dean of Student Affairs of the university, Lukman Jinadu, told Premium Times that academic activities will resume officially on Monday as the local branch of ASUU called off their strike after a meeting on Tuesday.

“We are resuming officially on Monday,” Mr. Jinadu said.


Gani Adams, the Aare Ona Kakanfo–designate of Yorubaland, on Tuesday, said he would use his new position to promote the Yoruba culture and fight the cause of the Yoruba race.

Describing himself as a fighter, the National Coordinator of the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), added that he would reach out to former Lagos state Governor Bola Tinubu, and other Yoruba leaders. The OPC leader said this in Lagos while speaking with newsmen on Tuesday.

Adams stated that though he is not as wealthy as the immediate past holder of the title, the late M. K. O. Abiola, he is ready to use his structure to advance the socio-cultural cause of the Yoruba.

“I am not as wealthy as the last Aare Ona Kakanfo, but the structure I have today with six million followers is something that cannot be wished away.

“I am going to be a bridge-builder and promote the unity of the Yoruba race. I will reach out to people who will help to move the Yoruba race. I am going to reach out to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other Yoruba leaders.” Adams said.

He said contrary to popular belief, the title is not a death knell for anybody chosen.

“Most men given the title were war generals. The myth that all the Aare Ona Kakanfo ended in tragedy is not true. We shouldn’t allow such a myth to cast a shadow on the good office of the Aare Ona Kakanfo.

“I am a fighter. You must understand that death is a product of God. I have been fighting for many years and will work to promote the Yoruba agenda,” he added.

He, however, said he would tone down his radical approach to issues.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday signed the bill establishing the University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun, Delta State, into law.

The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, who announced this for his principal, said the President, at the brief ceremony, pledged continued support for the socio-economic development of the Niger Delta region.

He said the president appealed to all communities in the region to strive for peace through dialogue in resolving all conflicts not only among them, but also with business entities and the authorities.

“This administration is fully committed to supporting the Niger Delta in its endeavours to achieve socio-economic development,” Buhari was quoted as saying.

With the signing of the bill into law, the path has been cleared for the establishment of the specialised university in the Niger Delta, charged with training and research in petroleum technologies.

The Federal University of Petroleum Resources Effurun (FUPRE) was established and approved by the Federal Executive Council meeting of 14 March 2007 and admitted its first set of undergraduates in 2008.

The university was established under the Federal Government of Nigeria initiative to build a specialized university in the Niger Delta to produce manpower and expertise for the oil and gas sector.

The National Universities Commission (NUC) approved sharing of facilities between the Petroleum Training Institute Effurun and FUPRE until it moved to its permanent site on development of its main campus at Ugbomro, Uvwie Local Government Area in 2010.


President Muhammadu Buhari has questioned how some governors go to bed and sleep when workers in their states have not been paid their salaries for months.

The President raised the concern on Tuesday in Abuja following growing complaints and agitations by workers in states over unpaid salaries and allowances, in spite of interventions by the Federal Government.

“How can anyone go to bed and sleep soundly when workers have not been paid their salaries for months”, Buhari told a meeting of select governors under the aegis of the Governors’ Forum in Abuja.

Governors of Ondo, Bauchi, Jigawa, Kwara, Akwa Ibom and the Deputy Governor of Ebonyi State were part of the visit to the President.

The governors were led by the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum, Abdul’Aziz Abubakar Yari.

President Buhari at the meeting at State House said the plight of workers in the states need urgent attention as many could barely survive.

“I actually wonder how the workers feed their families, pay their rents and even pay school fees for their children,’’ he said.

The President told the governors that two out of the three-pronged focus of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to secure the country and fight corruption had received some commendable reviews by the people, noting that the challenge in payment of salaries in states had taken a toll on the people.

“God has been merciful in hearing the prayers of his servants so the rainy season has been good, you can ask the Kebbi State governor on this, and our enormous food importation bill has gone down.’’

President Buhari said the Federal Government and state executives would need to work closer together to ameliorate the situation of workers across the country.

Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has declared the National Coordinator of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), Gani Adams, as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland.

The declaration was made on Sunday during his 79th birthday celebration, a statement by the spokesperson for Mr. Adams, Segun Akanni, said, adding that his principal had received a letter of appointment from the Alaafin. The Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has said the reason he picked the national coordinator of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) Gani Adams, as the 15th Aare Ona Kakanfo-designate of Yorubaland, was based on his antecedents in the promotion of Yoruba culture.

The position was held last by the late Moshood Abiola, who died in 1998. The Oyo monarch said his decision to pick Adams after Abiola’s death was based on his vision for the Yoruba nation.

He, however, described Adams as one “equipped by God with the vitality of youth, agility of the long distance runner, unblemished patriotism, and the wisdom of Solomon.

“His antecedents in the promotion of Yoruba culture are unquestionable, and he has a clear vision of where the Nation should be in its cultural reawakening both at home and overseas.”

Announcing Adams as the next holder of the title, Oba Lamidi said: “The Aare Ona Kakanfo-designate is Otunba Gani Adams, National Coordinator (OPC) Founder and Promoter of Olokun Festival Organization, and Founder of Odua Progressive Union with active branches in Africa and other countries of the world.”

Personal Assistant to Adams, Segun Akanni, who confirmed the appointment quoted Adams as saying he was honoured to be chosen for such an exalted position in Yorubaland.
