Gov. Aregbesola begins to pay Osun state workers; Starts with their December salary

Osun state governor Rauf Aregbesola has approved the payment of the December 2014 salary of the state civil servants. At a press conference in Osogbo, the state capital, the chairman of the state's NLC, Mr. Jacob Adekomi, said Governor Aregbesola approved the payment after a meeting between the state NLC leaders and some officials of the state government.

Mr Adekomi also stated that the Governor has approved the payment of 30% balance of November salaries of some workers who were yet to be paid in full. The NLC boss said the strike action by the state workers will still continue despite the payment of the December salary.

"We appreciate the efforts of the government to see that salary and pension arrears are settled without further delay . Our negation with government is that out of eight months owed us, the minimum we can take is Five months to resume work. As it is now, the strike continues while negotiations also continue. I appeal to all workers in the state to continue to stay at home until further notice. This payment is as good as no payment, because all deductions must have been made by our various banks. Because of this , there won’t be money for us to transport ourselves to work and feed our families. Until we have enough money to feed and for our transportation to work, we will not resume work. The strike continues.” he said

I do not feel threatened by younger comedians - Ali Baba

Fifty year old comedian Ali Baba, who is regarded as the godfather of Nigerian comedy says he does not feel threatened by younger comedians in the business.
Ali Baba who clocked fifty years old last week said there is no reason for him to feel threatened. 

"Why should I be threatened by them? how would I be giving them jokes? If I were, I won’t give them my jokes, and I would tell them not to use my jokes. I make jokes and give to some of them. So, there is nothing like being threatened by them" he said in an interview with Punch.
He stated once a comedian feels threatened by younger competition that means it's a sign for him to leave the game.

"The bottom line is that the day you begin to feel threatened by some other up-and-coming comedians, then you are on your way out. You’re supposed to be somebody they look up to, not somebody they compete with."

On his fiftieth birthday party his wife gave him a brand new Mercedes Benz.

Caitlyn Jenner needs to sound feminine

Caitlyn Jenner is done with her physically transformation and now wants to her voice to start sounding like feminine.
 Reports say the reality star and transgender advocate could undergo further surgery to achieve what she needs.

An insider tells radaronline, ''Caitlyn wants her  voice to sound feminine, and feels that her physical appearance doesn’t go along with her new image. The voice is a constant reminder of Caitlyn’s former life as Bruce. It’s been very hard for Caitlyn to move forward as a woman, while sounding like a man... She is exploring all her options, including having surgery, as well as hiring a vocal coach.''

Well, the surgical procedure Caitlyn is seeking for is called ferminization laryngoplasty (a surgery for male-to-female transgender patients) and involves remodeling the voice box – a procedure which is typically done on an outpatient basis. If she goes through with it, she won't be able to speak or even whisper for two weeks.

However, the 65-year-old seemed to be high spirits when she arrived in time for transgender actress Candis Cayne's performance - in the company of a few friends - at NYC's Pride event on Sunday, June 28 just moments after the annual Gay Pride Parade ended.

Buhari promises to improve power supply

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, again promised that his administration will give the highest possible priority to the rapid improvement of power supply across the country.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President spoke while granting audience to officials of CGGC, the Chinese Construction Company working on the Mambilla Power Project.
Adesina quoted the President as saying that it was quite regrettable that power generation in Nigeria had failed to keep pace with national needs over the years.
To salvage the situation, the President said his administration would therefore ensure that the Mambilla project and other unfinished hydro-power projects in the country are completed expeditiously to boost power supply in the country.

“I am very much interested in Mambilla and other hydro-power projects, not only for the improvement of power but also for irrigation as both power and irrigation projects will help to improve the lives of Nigerians.
“I am going to ask for details of the Mambilla Hydro-Power Project and others. Very soon, we will get together and redefine the project agreements for faster results,” Buhari reportedly said.

Chibok girls forced to fight for B’Haram – Witnesses tell BBC

Some of the 219 Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped on April 14, 2014 have been forced to join the fighters of the Boko Haram sect, the BBC has been told.

Witnesses told BBC Panorama Programme that some of them are now being used to terrorise other captives, and are even carrying out killings themselves.
The BBC cannot verify the testimony, but Amnesty International says other girls kidnapped by Boko Haram have been forced to fight.
The Chibok schoolgirls are still missing, more than a year after they were kidnapped from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State.
Three women who claimed they were held in the same camps as some of the Chibok girls told the BBC’s Panorama Programmeon Monday that some of them had been brainwashed and are now carrying out punishments on behalf of the militants.

Anna, aged 60, is one of them. She fled a camp in the Sambisa Forest in December where she was held for five months. She now sits beneath a tree close to the cathedral in the Adamawa State capital of Yola. Her only possessions are the clothes she ran away in. She said she saw some of the Chibok schoolgirls just before she fled the forest.   “They had guns,” she said.
When pressed on how she could be sure that it was the Chibok schoolgirls that she’d seen, Anna said, “They (Boko Haram) didn’t hide them. They told us, ‘These are your teachers from Chibok.’
“They shared the girls out as teachers to teach different groups of women and girls to recite the Koran,” Anna recalled.
She added, “Young girls who couldn’t recite were being flogged by the Chibok girls.”
Like Miriam, Anna also said she had seen some of the Chibok schoolgirls commit murder. “People were tied and laid down and the girls took it from there… The Chibok girls slit their throats,” said Anna.
Anna said she felt no malice towards the girls she had seen taking part in the violence, only pity. “It’s not their fault they were forced to do it,” she added.
“Anyone who sees the Chibok girls has to feel sorry for them,” she said.

APC insists on Ekweremadu’s removal

The battle for the control of the National Assembly may be long drawn as the leadership of the All Progressives Congress on Monday insisted on removing the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, of the minority Peoples Democratic Party.

Punch learnt on Monday that the ruling APC was still miffed that Ekweremadu emerged as the deputy senate president and had vowed never to allow “a senator from a minority party take over the duties statutorily assigned for the majority party.”
A leader of the APC, who spoke on condition of anonymity, explained that Ekweremadu as deputy senate president would hamper the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

The APC leader said, “As deputy senate leader, Ekweremadu is automatically the Chairman, Senate Committee on Constitution Amendment. This is a sensitive position that, statutorily, should not be held by the minority.
“Ekweremadu and his PDP co-travellers will hamper the policies of the Buhari government. By the virtue of Senate rules, a member of the minority is not supposed to be the deputy senate leader; so, he is occupying the post illegally.
“We know the body language of some of these elements to anti-corruption. Nigerians know the stance of Buhari on corruption and insecurity. These elements occupying positions in the National Assembly must be removed. Otherwise, this administration is dead on arrival.”

Okonjo-Iweala spent $2.1bn without approval - FG

The National Economic Council, chaired by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, on Monday accused a former Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy under ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, of spending $2.1bn from the Excess Crude Account without authorisation.

“We looked at the numbers for the Excess Crude Account. The last time the former Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister of the Economy, Mrs Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, reported to the council, and it is in the minutes, she reported by November 2014 that we had $4.1 bn.
“Today, the Accountant-General Office reported we have $2.0bn. Which means the honourable minister spent $2.1bn without authority of the NEC and that money was not distributed to states, it was not paid to the three tiers of government,” Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole told State House correspondents after the NEC’s 58th meeting in Abuja.
The ‘unauthorised’ spending, according to the economic council, is among the several anomalies discovered in the management of the nation’s economy between 2012 and May 2015.
Within the period, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation was said to have earned a total of N8.1 tn but remitted only N4.3tn.
Consequently, the Federal Government has constituted Oshiomhole, Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai; Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel; and Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo, into a panel to probe the NNPC and the ECA between 2012 and May, 2015.

Rep urges Buhari to intervene in N’Assembly crisis

The lawmaker representing Ojo federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Obasa, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to quickly intervene in the leadership crisis rocking the National Assembly before things get out of hand.

Obasa, who was elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, said this in a statement on Sunday.

“I plead with the President to intervene in the lingering crisis since he is the father of the nation and he has said repeatedly that he is ready to work with everyone,” the lawmaker said.
He also called on his All Progressives Congress counterparts in the lower chamber to stop overheating the polity and start thinking on how to make laws that would better the lives of the electorate.
Obasa, however, pledged his loyalty to the Speaker of the House, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, and assured Nigerians that Dogara’s tenure would be beneficial to all.
He said, “I’m not against party supremacy in decision making but all of us in the hallowed chamber should remember we are representing the interest of our constituents.”

PDP gives Buhari 10 days to name cabinet

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has given President Muhammadu Buhari ten days to set up his cabinet, saying Nigerians did not vote for a sole administrator.
The party also insisted that Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), must fulfil their campaign promises to Nigerians and confront insurgency with vigour.
 In a statement yesterday in Abuja, PDP national publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh, said after a careful evaluation of the first 30 days of President Buhari in office by the PDP, it has become obvious that Nigerians need to join hands in prayers to save the government from further “inaction and dithering.”
The party said the call for prayers has become necessary given the fact that the administration is finding it difficult to locate its bearing and even take off and face the challenges of governance at the centre, resulting in 30 days of “all motion and no movement,” a scenario it said does not augur well for the polity.

We'll soon expose Jonathan's loots - Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari said the enormity of the billions stolen during the administration of his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan, will be exposed when the loots are recovered, and returned to the national treasury soon.
Buhari, in a statement yesterday by his special adviser on media and publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, was reacting to Peoples Democratic Party National Publicity Secretary Olisa Metuh’s 30 days appraisal of his administration.
The presidential spokesperson faulted Metuh’s claim that Buhari’s men were conniving with bureaucrats to syphon money from the treasury. 

Adesina said Buhari was clearing the rots created by the PDP, especially during Jonathan’s government.
He said there was absolutely no reason for the way PDP and Jonathan ran the affairs of the country.
According to him, clearing the rots created by PDP in all sectors of the economy requires scrupulous and painstaking planning.

You can’t blackmail us - PDP tells Buhari

Press statement from the PDP...
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says no amount of intimidation, blackmail and propaganda by the Presidency would stop it from standing shoulder to shoulder with Nigerians in demanding that President Muhammadu Buhari kick-starts government and commence implementation of his campaign promises for which he was voted into office.
The party said Presidency’s excuse of clearing the so-called Augean Stable is lame and diversionary noting that it stands by its statement that the delay is creating loopholes
Through which some persons claiming closeness to the President have infiltrated executive bodies, arm-twisting and conniving with unscrupulous elements in the bureaucracy to syphon the nation’s resources in the last 30 days.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh in a statement on Monday said the party would not in any way be cowed by threats and wild allegations by the Presidency into abdicating its responsibility of speaking out as an opposition party where the system is derailing.

“The PDP and indeed all well-meaning Nigerians were appalled by the response from the Presidency regarding our call for prayers to enable President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration locate its bearing, compose a government and halt the prevailing stagnation with its huge negative impact on the system.

“Instead of addressing the issues raised, the Presidency descended to insults, abuses and innuendos, a stance which not only bears out the case made by the PDP but also raises questions about the capacity of this administration to shoulder the enormous responsibility of governance.

“While we expect the present administration to be serious about the fight against corruption, probe and persecute each and everyone involved in such, irrespective of their party leaning, we restate that these must be done within the ambits of the law and must not be used as a witch-hunt ostensibly to discredit and undermine the opposition. We therefore caution against the current drama of politicizing the issue of corruption in the country.

“Furthermore, the analogy of the Augean stable, is completely baffling to us at this level as it goes to a great length to question the capacity and the sincerity of those around the president.

“In Greek mythology, Hercules in his ingenuity took the task and efficiently cleared the Augean’ stable in a day for which he demanded a reward of a tenth of fine cattle belonging to the king.  

“Nigerians would not want to believe that in the so-called clearing of the Augean stable, although not delivering in one day, President Buhari wants to play Hercules in his demand, this time, by wanting to run the government alone without the statutory components of the executive as enshrined in the constitution.

“We ask, is the so-called clearing of mess responsible for his inability after 90 days of winning an election to make up his mind on rudimentary appointments such as Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief of Staff and his demand for 15 Special Advisers as approved by the PDP controlled Seventh Assembly since June 5, 2015?

“Perhaps we need to draw President Buhari’s attention to the fact that while he is busy clearing his imaginary mess on the pages of newspapers, some persons claiming closeness to him have in the last 30 days been piling up sleazes that also need his attention in key agencies of government.

“Despite the absence of approving and supervising officials, key income generating institutions like NNPC, NIMASA, NPA, FIRS and other strategic agencies have been invaded by persons claiming to be friends and associates of the President and this puts to question the sincerity and seriousness of the administration to affect the so-called change upon which they rode to power.

“Auxiliary to this is the issue of the construction of a helipad, amongst various expenses and other major government expenditure going on across board in the last one month and without due supervision as the eyes of the President cannot be everywhere.

“We declare unequivocally that we do have respect for the person and office of the President especially considering his age and status as an elder statesman. However, we will like to make it very clear that the President of the Federal Republic Nigeria is neither a Sherriff in the Old Wild West nor a military dictator in some Banana Republic. He is an elected president under a democratic setting.

Argentine Man Abducted in Nigeria Says Mentioning Lionel Messi’s Name Prevented Captors from Harming Him

A 28-year-old Argentine man was abducted and held captive for three days while working in Nigeria.

The man, Santiago Lopez Menendez, who is an agricultural engineer told Goal that mentioning the name of Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, calmed down his captors.

According to the publication:
Menendez had been working in Nigeria since last year, planting soya and corn crops close to Kontagora in the north-west of the country.
But he was kidnapped earlier this week and beaten violently by his captors, who hardly spoke any English and thought he was north American.
It was then in desperation that Menendez tried to tell them he was Argentine and he was eventually able to calm down his aggressors with repeated cries of “Messi, Messi, Messi”.
Held captive for three days, the engineer was eventually released after the company who employs him paid an undisclosed ransom to the kidnappers.
Back in Argentina, his brother Jorge spoke to Clarin and said: “‘Tell them I am grateful to Messi’, he told me. ‘Naming him is what saved me.'”
Menendez is now safe and will return to his homeland in the next few hours.


Driver, Gateman Killed FUTA Vice Chancellor, Police Confirm

The Ondo State Command of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has stated that two workers employed by the former Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA), Albert Ilemobade, have confessed to killing their boss.

Ondo State Police Commissioner, Isaac Eke, made the disclosure on Sunday evening in an exclusive interview he gave to a correspondent of SaharaReporters in Akure, the state capital. According to the police commissioner, the late professor’s driver and gateman confessed to police investigators to killing Mr. Ilemobade. The police boss identified the two suspects simply by their first names. One, Daniel, served as the late VC’s gateman while the other, Yemi, was the deceased academic’s driver.

The decayed remains of the former VC were discovered early on Sunday in a detached area of his large compound, according to an earlier report by this website. The alleged murderers told police that they killed Professor Ilemobade inside his compound, and then they fled.

“They confirmed to our men during interrogation that they strangled the professor to death and decided to dump his dead body at an abandoned store in the family’s expansive compound before taking to their heels and making away with his vehicle,” Mr. Eke said.

There were reports a week ago that the former university administrator was abducted along with his gateman and taken to an unknown destination.

Following news of Mr. Ilemobade’s abduction, the police had launched a manhunt for his purported abductors, unaware that he had been murdered and his dead body dumped inside a store in his compound close to a garage.

“The body [of the former VC] was found decomposed when our officers broke into the store where he was kept,” Mr. Eke said.

The police commissioner also disclosed that a team of security agents led by police officers from the Ogun State Command arrested the two domestic employees.

He said the two men were caught as they tried to sell off a red Toyota Rav4 SUV reportedly stolen from Mr. Ilemobade’s residence in Ijapo, near Akure.

“Our men from the Ogun State Command arrested the two [suspects] while they were negotiating a price for sale of their boss’s vehicle which they had stolen from him the day we thought he was kidnapped,” said Mr. Eke.

Asked how detectives found the former VC’s body, the police commissioner revealed that his command acted on a signal and immediately deployed officers to comb the compound.

According to Mr. Eke, the two suspects are being held in police custody. He added that police investigators continue to interrogate the suspects as the investigation into the tragic event continues.

SaharaReporters also learned that the remains of the 78-year old former professor of veterinary medicine had been deposited at a hospital.

The deceased vehicle was later recovered in Ogun state.

The police are scheduled to address a press conference on the matter on Monday, June 29, 2015 at 9 a.m. at the police headquarters on Igbatoro Road, Akure.

Aides kill ex-Vice Chancellor, dump body in garage

A former Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State, Prof. Albert Ilemobade, who was reported to have been kidnapped last week has been found dead.

He was allegedly killed by his gateman and driver who later dumped his body in the garage in his house at the Ijapo area of Akure, the Ondo State capital.
Ilemobade was earlier reportedly abducted by unknown gunmen on June 22 together with his gateman and driver. Since then, there had been no information about his whereabouts until Sunday when his decomposed body was found in his house.
Speaking about the incident, Ven. Ayodeji Fagbemi, who is the vicar of the deceased’s church, said some policemen from the Ondo State Police Command called him after the church service on Sunday that he should come to the house of Ilemobade at Ijapo.
He said, “I rushed down there only to see the driver and the gateman of Prof Ilemobade leading the policemen to the place where the deceased’s remains were kept after being killed.
“The driver, Yemi, and the gateman, Daniel, confessed to the policemen that they were the ones that killed the former VC and poured diesel on him to cover the odour of the decomposed body.”
The clergyman further explained that the policemen had removed the remains and deposited them at a mortuary for further investigation.
When contacted on telephone, the Ondo State Commissioner of Police, Mr Isaac Eke, said the driver and the gateman of the deceased had been arrested.
Eke said, “We have arrested two suspects in connection with the incident and we are going to parade them at the command on Monday (today).”
