‘If Buhari doesn’t perform, stone us’

Momoh AMID anxiety in the land over the state of the nation, former Minister of Information, Prince Tony Momoh, says President Muhammadu Buhari was capable of tackling headlong the myriad of problems confronting Nigeria, adding that he remained the only President since independence who diligently sought the office and got it. Momoh, who spoke in Auchi, Etsako West Local Council of Edo, stressed that the agitations notwithstanding, the South East geo-political zone stood to be the biggest beneficiary of the current administration. The Auchi prince thundered: “At the end of the day if Buhari doesn’t perform, stone us because he is going to perform.” The former minister, who is also a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) went memory lane, saying: “He is the only one who came since independence to be president of Nigeria and succeeded. No other one. Tafawa Balewa wanted to be a broadcaster, he became prime minister. Shehu Shagari wanted to become a senator, he became pr…

New Year brings fresh challenges for Pope Francis

PHOTO: Pope Francis faces a tough 2016, Vatican insiders say, with no let-up in his physically demanding schedule or the political battles over his efforts to modernise the Church. The 79-year-old pontiff, who eschews holidays and has appeared worn out at times during the last year, has already scheduled major trips to Mexico (February) and Poland (July). Visits to Kosovo and Armenia (to mark the 100th anniversary of the World War I genocide there) are expected to be added to his diary while France and his native Argentina are also seen as possible destinations in the next 12 months. Laid low by the flu over Christmas, Francis nevertheless had the energy to insist that his wave-making shake-up of Vatican governance would be pursued in the New Year. “The reform of the Curia (the Vatican bureacracy) will progress with determination, clarity and resolve,” he said in his end-of-year message to the faithful. Top of the agenda for 2016 is the creation of two new …

Explain repayment of N1.84tr loan, PDP tells Buhari

Olisa Metuh, National Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party. FOR the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), the plan by President Muhammadu Buhari to borrow N1.84 trillion loan to fund the N6.08 trillion 2016 budget will aggravate the nation’s economic crisis instead of reducing it. The opposition party thus yesterday asked the Federal Government to explain to Nigerians how it intends repaying the loan. In an interview in Abuja yesterday, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Olisa Metuh, explained that a breakdown of the N1.84 trillion showed that Nigeria would be borrowing N5 billion daily for the next 365 days, starting from January 1, 2016, even as he lamented that there was no corresponding provision for economic production and a clear repayment plan, a scenario he noted that would spell doom for the nation in the future. Metuh said: “Some people may be wondering why we raised the alarm about the budget. The reason is simple. When we analysed the budget, we disc…

Odion Ighalo…Nigeria’s gift to the EPL

ODION IGHALO completed a permanent switch to Watford in October 2014, having initially signed on a one-year loan from Udinese just three months previous.

Bafarawa pledges support for Buhari’s anti-corruption war

Former Governor of Sokoto state, Alhaji Attahiru Bafarawa, has endorsed the ongoing anti-corruption war of President Muhammadu Buhari. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Bafarawa, who is standing trial in the ongoing arms deal corruption trial made this known to newsmen in Sokoto on Wednesday. “In spite of our ongoing trial by the court in relation to the arms deal allegations, I still support Buhari’s anti-corruption war. “Nigerians should support the President’s efforts to tame the social monster, corruption as it stalls the even socio-economic development of the nation. “I also fought corruption to a standstill when I was a governor in Sokoto state between 1999 and 2007. “That was why I was able to leave over N12 billion in the coffers of the state when I left office in 2007,” he added. Bafarawa said: “I have taken the matter as an act of God and I am happy that Allah has enabled me to take it as such.
“As for me, I will not comment on any issues now since the matter is c…

Hollande under fire over call to strip citizenship from terror convicts

France President, Francois Hollande President Francois Hollande’s call for convicted French-born terrorists to lose their citizenship if they have a second nationality has triggered uproar among those who see him adopting right-wing ideas that recall dark moments in France’s history. Ever since the French Revolution in the late 1700s, “le droit du sol” (“the right of the soil”) has been a fundamental principle, giving everyone born in the country the right to citizenship. But in the aftermath of November’s jihadist attacks in Paris, Hollande announced to an extraordinary session of both houses of parliament that he would seek changes to the constitution so that dual nationals — even those born in France — could be stripped of their French passport. The idea has huge support from a jittery nation, with nearly 90 percent backing the measure in a poll for BFM TV. Hollande’s Socialist government has staunchly defended the move with Prime Minister Manuel Valls saying the measure was alread…

Gbajabiamila Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, House Leader of the House of Representatives, on Wednesday said that the 8th Assembly in its six months of existence had sponsored a total of 327 bills as against 132 presented within the first six months of the 7th Assembly. Gbajabiamila said this in Lagos, at an end of the year media briefing on activities of the 8th House of Representatives from June 9 to Dec. 22. He said that 264 Bills out of the 327 had passed through first reading and awaiting second reading while a total of 40 Bills had been referred to committees. According to him, inspite of a bumpy start in June when the house was inaugurated, the House has been able to step up to the plate and has busied itself in working for the progress of Nigeria. “In keeping with the resolve of the President to address the issues of insecurity, unemployment and corruption amongst others, we developed a legislative agenda that will guide the House in achieving its set objectives. “The Bills and Motions …

Bill Cosby charged with sexual assault: prosecutor

Cosby (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File) US comic Bill Cosby has been charged with sexual assault in Pennsylvania over an incident that took place in 2004, a prosecutor said Wednesday — the first criminal charges filed against the actor after dozens of women claimed abuse. “Mr Cosby is charged with aggravated indecent assault. This is a felony,” Kevin Steele, assistant district attorney for the state’s Montgomery County, told reporters in Norristown, in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Cosby, 78, was to be arraigned later Wednesday. If found guilty, the veteran television star could face up to 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine. More than 50 women have already publicly claimed abuse by the pioneering African-American comedian, who attained his greatest fame for his role as the lovable family doctor and pater familias in the hit 1980s sitcom “The Cosby Show.” But his attorneys have repeatedly denied any wrongdoing by Cosby, who has gone from megastar to pariah in the face of the allegations, w…

Goodluck, Jonathan!

JonathanTHE comma in the middle of my headline converts it from a name to a remark or a sentence. As in prison sentence.
For I predict that by this time next year, the best-known bearer of that name, Nigeria’s former leader Mr. Goodluck Jonathan, will be serving one. In the closing weeks of 2015, what was sometimes conveniently dismissed by his supporters as heavy criticism of Mr. Jonathan has proved to be fair. That tragedy is that he did not run a government; he ran a-no-rules and no-responsibility bazaar to ennoble, and enable, the shameless privatisation of Nigeria’s resources. A case in point (and the only envelope to be opened so far): what some people now call Dasukigate: an arms-purchase scandal anchored by the National Security Adviser (NSA) Sambo Dasuki through which federal funds meant for arms for the military were being distributed to the well-connected. It is unclear when and how it became the business of the NSA to purchase military armament. Nigeria’s appropriation law…
