Crime / Efcc Traces Dubai Properties To Diezani by johneewalker: 09:05am On 9 Sep
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has traced properties in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), to a former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke.

The properties, said to be worth billions in naira, are located at E146 Emirates Hill Dubai and J5 Emirates Hill Dubai, according to a top EFCC source.

The source said the properties were traced through cooperation with the UAE, which made available information in a register of properties belonging to Nigerians.

The commission is also set to obtain a court order confiscating and preventing sale of the properties through the instrumentality of the Mareva injunction.

Apart from these new properties in Dubai, the EFCC had earlier said it traced about N47.2billion and $487.5million in cash and properties to Diezani Alison-Madueke, adding that a search of one of Alison-Madueke’s residences in Abuja, turned up boxes of gold, silver and diamond jewellery, worth several million pounds sterling.

Another property valued at $37.5m in Banana Island, Lagos was also traced to the former minister, according to the EFCC.

She was said to have purchased the 15-storey building, which comprises 18 flats and six penthouses, between 2011 and 2012 from the developers, YF Construction and Real Estate.

On August 7, 2017, Justice Chuka Obiozor, a vacation judge sitting at the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos, ordered the final forfeiture of property on Banana Island.

The EFCC said the property allegedly linked to Diezani in Banana Island Lagos consists of two apartments at the Bella Vista Court.

It said the apartments which are Penthouses, are located on Block C-5, Flat 21, Plot 1 and Zone N, and bought for $350 million allegedly stolen from Nigeria’s treasury on November 22, 2011.

Also in Lagos, Alison-Madueke allegedly bought a block of six units’ serviced apartments at number 135, Awolowo Road, Ikoyi at the rate of N800 million on January 6, 2012.

The EFCC said other properties in Yaba, Lagos, were located at number 7, Thurnburn Street and 5, Raymond Street.

Daily Trust reports that properties in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Lekki Phase one, Lagos; Asokoro, Mabushi, Maitama, all in Abuja; among others, have been traced to the former minister.

Business / Food Prices Crash In Asaba by johneewalker: 08:24am On 9 Sep

Prices of staple food, including garri, yam and potatoes, have crashed in Asaba and environs, a market survey by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) has shown.

Buyers at the Ogbe Ogonogo Market, on Sunday, expressed happiness over the situation as the food dealers attributed the price fall to the reduction in the cost price of the items.

Some farmers said the reduction in the prices was due to the bumper harvest which resulted from early and adequate rainfall in Delta and other neighbouring states.

Mrs Angela Okonta, a food dealer, told NAN that a measure of garri which was previously sold for N20,000 now sell for 17,000.

According to her, a bushel of garri which sold for N1,000 in June now went for N700.

“A bag of potatoes was sold for N2,000 some months ago, but now we sell it N1400.

“A medium size tuber of yam previously sold for between N500 and N600 is now sold for between N300 and N400, depending on the buyer’s bargaining power,” she said.

A rice seller, Mr Eugene Nkenchor, said that a 50 kilogramme bag of rice which was earlier sold for N18,000 now sold for N17,000..

He said that there was a slight drop in the price of white beans as a bag of the commodity now went for N15,000 instead of N16,500.

“But there is a slight increase in the price of brown beans. A sack of brown beans earlier sold for N17,000 now costs N17,500.

A farmer, Mr Nwanne Obi, said there had been good harvest in the state this year due to early and adequate rainfall.

Obi said that the yams currently in the market were planted in the riverine communities between November and December last year.

He said the ones cultivated upland between March and April had yet to mature, pointing out that it took a minimum period of six months for them to mature.

According to Mr Bartholomew Isichie, another farmer, garri and other products of cassava cost higher during the dry season because of the difficulty in harvesting the crops.

“During the rainy season, it is easier to harvest; the soil is soft and it is easy to dig out cassava tubers.

He said that potatoes were much available in the market and cheap because the crop was usually planted in March and April and that it required only three months for it to mature. (NAN)

Politics / Operation Python Dance: Army Withdraws From Abia by johneewalker: 08:20am On 9 Sep

Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia has expressed gratitude to God for averting bloodbath in the state, following the withdrawal of troops deployed to Abia for a one-month military exercise code-named “Operation Python Dance.”

Ikpeazu made the remark on Sunday when he visited the secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) Abia council to commiserate with journalists over last Tuesday’s invasion of the secretariat by soldiers.

The governor noted that the presence of the troops sparked tension across the state.

He said “we are grateful to God for intervening in stopping what could have been the greatest bloodbath known in the history of mankind.”

He also thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for reposing confidence in Southeast Governors’ Forum, “by giving us a second chance to talk to our people on the need for us to live as one united nation.”

He added that the Igbos remained the most widely travelled people in Nigeria, living and conducting businesses in every nook and cranny of the country.

The governor put the estimated population of Igbos in the north at about 12 million, with Borno having the least population of about 50,000 Igbo households.

He said Abia needed peace for business to thrive, especially in Aba, the commercial nerve centre of the state.

“I am very happy to say that normalcy has returned to the state,” he said, adding that Muslims worshipped in their Mosque on Friday in Aba.

He, therefore, urged residents of the state to go about their lawful businesses, assuring them that government would continue to provide adequate security for lives and property.

The governor described the invasion of the NUJ secretariat as unwarranted, saying that “journalists do not deserve such an attack.”

He said that although journalists faced different hazards in the course of their duty, military attacks only happened under military regime or war situation and not in a democracy.

Ikpeazu, who complained that the activities of his administration were under-reported, urged journalists to help in reporting the state positively to the world.

He promised to look into some of the challenges facing the Abia NUJ, including taking steps to complete the union’s unfinished permanent secretariat.

Earlier, the state Chairman of the union, Mr John Emejor, narrated how the secretariat was invaded by no fewer than 20 soldiers without any provocation.

Emejor said that Abia NUJ was the only council in the country that still operated in rented apartment.

He described the relationship between the union and Ikpeazu’s administration as frosty and urged the governor to take steps to reverse the trend.

The Abia correspondent of The Oracle Today newspaper, Bonny Okoro, was manhandled during the attack.

His Samsung tablet, as well as a cellphone belonging to the correspondent of Daily Times, Mr Sunny Nwakanma, was also destroyed by the assailants.

Gov. Ikpeazu was accompanied on the visit by his Deputy, Chief Ude Oko-Chukwu, Rep. Sam Onuigbo representing Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal Constituency, and the Pillar of Abia NUJ, Dr Anthony Agbazuere.

Religion / What Every Husband Must Do Regularly As In A Christian Home by Kingvictor(m): 10:42am On 9 Sep
“All your males are to appear before the Lord.” Exodus 34:23 NAS
GOD SAID, “Three times a year all your males are to appear before the Lord…For I will drive out nations before you…enlarge your borders, and no man shall covet your land” (vv. 23-24 NAS).
Three times a year the men of Israel were to go on a spiritual retreat and seek God’s guidance.
And God promised to protect their families and their possessions while they were gone, and even to “enlarge [their] borders.”
So if you’re a husband who wants God to protect your family and bless your endeavours, you must take the time to submit your thoughts, actions, and decisions to His leadership. You’ll never function successfully as the head of your family until you’re under the headship of Christ.
The best thing you can do in leading your home and building a great marriage is to ask the question, “What is the mind of Christ in this matter?” (See 1 Corinthians 2:16). And then follow it. Once you’ve done that, you’ll have your wife's full attention and cooperation. Why? Because she’s no longer arguing with you and your opinions. Now you’ve brought Christ and His Word into the equation. It may take time for your wife to trust your leadership and respect your thinking, but as she sees you walk with God and practice His principles, she’ll come to trust you and feel secure.
When a woman says to her husband, “I need you to hold me,” she’s not necessarily talking about physical intimacy. She’s talking about her God-given need for security. She needs a husband she can love and trust. And God can make you such a husband.


Sports / Montenegrin Goalkeeper Lenac Shot Dead While Training by Kingvictor(m): 10:25am On 9 Sep
The 33-year-old was working on his fitness with a friend at the FC Bokelj training ground when he was fatally wounded Goran Lenac, a goalkeeper who once graced the Montenegrin top-flight, has been shot and killed while training with a friend.
The incident occurred on Saturday evening at around 7:30pm local time. Lenac was at the FC Bokelj training ground when he was fatally wounded by a gunshot to the head.
The 33-year-old was rushed to hospital in critical condition, with a medical facility in Risan later confirming that he had passed away.
Lenac had been on the books of top tier outfit Bokelj as recently as 2015 and was using his ties to the club to stay in shape.
He was a popular figure in the community, with former team-mates and those who knew him revealing that he was a committed athlete who often helped to fund the development of aspiring stars out of his own pocket.
Police blocked off the city of Kotor as the search began for Lenac’s assailant.
Local media in Montenegro - skalaradio.com - have reported that the shooter must have known the area as he was able to escape quickly in the dark without being caught.
It is also claimed that shots were fired into the air as the attacker fled the scene in an effort to
scare off potential eye-witnesses.

Phones / 5 Reasons Why Most People Love Android Devices [ A Must Read ] by Kingvictor(m): 07:36am On 9 Sep
The debate on which is the better operating system between the iOS and Android operating system is a debate that will probably never be concluded, it’s just like that of Messi & Ronaldo or like that of Wizkid & Davido
However, it is impossible to deny some of the impressive features that the Android operating system offers.
Here are the 5 reasons why most people love Android devices.
1. It’s Affordable
Buying an Android device is unlikely to devastate your bank account, and for that afford-ability remains an attractive option to many.
With varieties of devices, designs and specs, Android devices really have something to suit every budget range and offers a true and enjoyable smartphone experience.
Android’s affordability is what has driven and continues to drive its worldwide dominance.
2. It Allows Customization
Another strong feature of Android devices is the fact that it allows customization. Unlike most Apple devices, Android devices let you choose any level of customization you want and this flexibility is what really appeals to most smart phone users.
This is because many smart phone users generally tend to want to explore the limits of their devices, and they typically like having the ability to freely customize and play around with features and design of their phones.
3. It Allows For Multi-Tasking
Some might argue that iOS devices also allow multi-tasking, but what they cannot deny is that the level of multi-tasking that iOS devices support, does not come anywhere near the level of multi-tasking some Android phones offer.
Samsung phones are a good examples of Android phones that have great multi-tasking features.
This is one area that Apple is more or less playing catch-up to Android devices.
4. Its Seamless Integration With Google’s Services
Android devices integrate seamlessly with Google’s varieties of services, and this works just great because Google is largely considered the ‘king of the web’.
Apple and iOS doesn’t seem to be able to keep up in this area, and have had to yield to accommodating more Google services on their platform.
Unfortunately, the seamless integration enjoyed between Android devices and Google services, is not replicated in the integration of iOS and Google services.
5. There are Widgets!
With widgets you can ‘see all the information you need at a glance’ without having to open an app.
Widgets are a major advantage Android devices have over iOS devices, mainly because even with Apple’s recent launch of widgets on their iOS devices, it still remains very limited on iOS compared to the widgets of Android devices that are more unbounded and offer more varieties.
We hope you all enjoyed this?

Foreign Affairs / Tunisian Women Now Free To Marry Non-muslims by johneewalker: 09:00am On 9 Sep

Tunisia’s presidency has announced that women are now free to marry non-Muslims, the AFP news agency reporte.

The announcement upending the decades-old law comes a month after President Beji Caid Essebsi called for the government to scrap the ban dating back to 1973. A spokeswoman for the president posted on Facebook: “Congratulations to the women of Tunisia for the enshrinement of the right to the freedom to choose one’s spouse.”

Until now, a non-Muslim man who wished to marry a Tunisian woman had to convert to Islam and submit a certificate of his conversion as proof. Human rights groups in Tunisia had campaigned for the ban’s abolition, saying it undermined the fundamental human right to choose a spouse. Tunisia is viewed as being ahead of most Arab countries on women’s rights, but there is still discrimination particularly in matters of inheritance, the report says.


Romance / My Wife Is A Witch, Divorce-seeking Man Tells Court by johneewalker: 08:39am On 9 Sep

My wife is a witch, she appears and disappears using her wonder-working powers,” 58-year-old businessman, Olarenwaju Moruf, told an Igando Customary Court in Lagos on Thursday.

The man, therefore, urged the court to terminate the 17-year-old marriage, saying “I am no longer interested in the relationship as the love I have for her has faded.”

He accused his wife, Fatimot, who had a child for him, of witchcraft.

“There was a day my wife appeared physically to me in my hotel room when I travelled to the northern part of the country for a job, I shouted and she disappeared.

“She keeps appearing and disappearing whenever good things are coming my way. She once appeared to me and my promotion letter turned to sack letter.

“Everywhere I went for a solution, I was told that my wife was behind my predicament and I strongly believe it because I am also a witness to her devilish acts,” he said, accusing his wife of belonging to a cult.

Moruf added:“There was a day I came home unexpectedly to pick what I forgot, I caught my wife holding a meeting with a cult member.

“Fatima brings strange people into our matrimonial home, including a teenager whose father is a herbalist.

Apart from the witchcraft allegation, the man also said his wife had been threatening to poison him.

Fatima, a 47-year-old trader, however, denied the allegations, saying “I am not a witch.”

“I am not the one behind my husband’s predicament, my hands are clean; I do not belong to a cult, I am a committed Muslim.”

The respondent pleaded with the court not to grant her husband’s request to dissolve the marriage, insisting“I still love him.”

The court’s President, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, adjourned the case until Nov. 2 for further hearing.

Jobs/Vacancies / Bayelsa In Massive Job Creation by johneewalker: 08:37am On 9 Sep

The Bayelsa Government said on Thursday in Yenagoa that it created over 7,000 direct and indirect jobs through the release of N1.88 billion loan to Small and Medium-scale to entrepreneurs and cooperatives.

Gov. Seriake Dickson stated this at the 2017 African SME EXPO with the theme `Promoting SMEs for sustainable development and economic growth’.

Dickson, represented by his Deputy, Rear Admiral John Jonah (rtd), said that his administration achieved the feat in partnership with the Bank of Industry and other relevant agencies.

He said that the initiative enhanced the growth of SMEs with direct impact on the economic growth of the state.

Dickson said that In furtherance to his commitment on job creation and empowerment of the teeming youths in the state, the government was also negotiating for a N2 billion Micro, Small and Medium Scale (MSME) Entrepreneurship loan.

He explained that in 2015, the government launched Izon Microfinance Bank to provide small businesses and serious minded entrepreneurs with access to capital.

“This is important for us because funding is crucial, if people are to innovate and think outside the box.

“We have achieved so much since the commencement of the Microfinance Bank, especially because the bank, with support provided by CBN and other funding partners, has supported women groups and cooperatives in the state to venture on their own.”

Describing SMEs as panacea for the growth of the local economy, Dickson stressed the need for the promotion of locally made goods and as well as simplifying business registration process.

“We need to deliberate in strengthening the existing institutions as in the Bayelsa example, where there is a law that one per cent of the annual state budget is released to the Bayelsa State Microfinance and Enterprises Development Agency for SME development yearly.

“We must simplify the registration processes for businesses and encourage their migration from the informal to the formal sector through regulation and proper monitoring.

“As leaders and opinion shapers, we need to encourage technology diffusion through value chain processes and establish priority sectors for local investment,” the governor said.

Dickson recommended tax incentives for priority sectors, saying that it is a means of boosting local production.

In addition, he advocated for training and incentives for the utilization of local production resources for SMEs that establish operations in certain designated areas.

Dickson said the gains of his administration included the 60 tonnes per day Cassava starch factory at Ebedebiri in Sagbama that is linked with the cultivation of a 100-hectare cassava farm.

“Our Aquaculture village at Yenegwe in Yenagoa, with fish processing complex capacity of 7.5 tonness per batch, 20 tonnes per day feedmill, 500 non-earthen ponds capable of accommodating 700 fishes, hatchery with six million fingerlings per animals.

“Our plans, in collaboration with the Federal Government over the the Peremabiri Rice farms/mills in Southern Ijaw, is also one of the largest in Africa with a huge capacity that has started.

“With that in mind, the construction of a 3.5 Kms run away Cargo Airport is under way in Bayelsa,” Dickson said.

In his contribution Dr. Ebiekure Eradiri, the Director-General, Bayelsa State Microfinance and Enterprise Development Agency, applauded Dickson’s vision and support for the MSMEs sub-sector.

Eradiri said that that since Dickson took over the mantle of leadership in the state in 2012, he has been of tremendous support to the scheme.

He stated that the Africa SME Expo event had increased the perspective and that the Agency was willing to pursue vigorously its mandate to achieve its cardinal projects on fund recovery, job creation and wealth creation for Bayelsa.


Politics / Army Insists On Python Dance Ii Launch In S/east by johneewalker: 08:34am On 9 Sep

The Nigerian Army on Thursday said it would launch Python Dance II (Egwu Eke 11) in the South East and Cross River on Friday as scheduled.

Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman, Director, Army Public Relations, said this in a statement in Abuja.

Usman urged the public to disregard information credited to Abia governor and GOC 82 Division, Enugu, that soldiers would be gradually withdrawn from street in Aba and Umuahia from Friday.

“This should not be misconstrued as withdrawing of troops earmarked for Exercise EGWU EKE II. The General Officer Commanding 82 Division has not said such thing.

“Consequently, we wish to state that Exercise EGWU EKE II is commencing tomorrow as scheduled.

“Commanders have been instructed to ensure that all hands are on deck to commence the Exercise to its logical completion.

“We wish to state further that the successful completion of the exercise will dovetail into the various states security outfits till the end of this year,” he said.

He called on the people of Abia, Enugu Ebonyi, Anambra, Imo and Cross River states, where the exercise would take place to go about their lawful businesses.

Usman warned that the army would not allow any individual or group to jeopardize the conduct of the field training through unlawful or criminal activities.

“Hoodlums and criminal elements are once again warned to be law abiding and not cause any breach of peace,” he also warned.

He said troops involved in the exercise would conduct themselves in the best professional manner, abide by the rules of engagement and code of conduct.

“Any act of indiscipline by any of our personnel would be decisively dealt with.”

Politics / Doctors Suspend Nationwide Strike by johneewalker: 08:49am On 9 Sep
The Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) has suspended of its 10-day-old strike for two weeks to monitor the level of federal government’s compliance with the agreement reached.

The two weeks period is to afford the doctors enough time to further discuss with the federal government to arrive at final solutions to the contentious issues.

The doctors would, however, resume the strike if the discussion with the government fails.

The National Executive Council (NEC) of NARD took the decision at its meeting in Abuja on Wednesday night to appraise the implementation of its agreement with the government.

The chairman of NARD UCH chapter, Dr Segun Olaopa, said “the decision was reached following appeals from the public that the doctors should give the federal government more time to meet their demands”
Doctors had appealed to Nigerians to bear the situation as members of the association were pressing government to improve the healthcare delivery system in the country.

NARD embarked on a nationwide indefinite strike to press home a six-point demand.

The association had on Sept. 6 laid out terms of settlement with the federal government after the two parties met to resolve the crisis.

The doctors are protesting the sack of some of their colleagues, non-payment of “skipping’’ entitlement, non-inclusion in the IPPIS platform and non-payment of their salary arrears.

The federal government had agreed it will pay the arrears and commence the inclusion of NARD members on the IPPIS platform.

Dr Arikawe Adeolu, a member of the National Executive Council of NARD, had said the association was waiting on the federal government to redeem its pledge before the strike could be called off.

Adeolu said that more than half of members of the association were yet to receive their arrears, claiming that government is also yet to meet its other demands in the terms of settlement.

He said that the association would therefore hold a meeting to assess the response of government to its demands.
