Bill on Loans for Undergraduates Passes Second Reading in House of Reps

Bill on Loans for Undergraduates Passes Second Reading in House of Reps

Femi Gbajabiamila

A prominent lawmaker in Nigeria is sponsoring a bill to empower Nigeria students financially to enable them invest in businesses.

A bill seeking to make Federal Government to provide loan to students to pursue tertiary education passed second reading at the House of Representatives on Tuesday. Speaking on the bill, its sponsor, Femi Gbajabiamila (APC-Lagos), said that it was intended to provide students with easy access to funds for higher education.

Gbajabiamila said that a great population of Nigerian students would be enrolled for higher education if the bill scaled was successful.

He, therefore, canvassed for the establishment of Nigerian Education Bank. Gbajabiamila also advocated that the loans should be interest-free, saying “Nigeria is blessed with abundant natural resources to tap from and encourage quality education for future generations’’. According to him, education is a right and not a privilege for Nigerians. Students’ loans speak volume if a lasting legacy is to be bequeathed to future generations.

Contributing, Rep. Nnanna Igbokwe (PDP-Imo) said that passage of the bill would provide more opportunities for Nigerian students who were financially incapacitated to further their studies. “More opportunities would be given to young Nigerians who are intelligent but are having financial constraints to continue with their education," Igbokwe said.

The lawmakers unanimously endorsed the passage of the bill for the second reading through a voice vote. In his remarks, Speaker of the House, Mr Yakubu Dogara, commended members for their contributions and referred the bill to the Committee on Tertiary Education and Services for further legislative actions.

Heartland drag IfeanyiUbah to LMC over Ebele Obi’s transfer

Heartland drag IfeanyiUbah to LMC over Ebele Obi’s transfer

Heartland have written to the League Management Company (LMC), claiming that IfeanyiUbah FC, have infringed on fundamental transfer rules.

The Nnewi Warriors are interested in signing goalkeeper Ebele Obi from Heartland, in the mid-season window.

“We’ve written to the League Management Company because FC IfeanyiUbah breached procedural norms as it relates to players’ transfer,” Heartland spokesman Solomon Onu told Completesportsnigeria.com.


“The ideal thing which is enshrined in the football league books is that you first write the club indicating your intention to buy the player.

“Then, the club will now say they will sell or not. Or better still, they will tell you how much to pay and give you permission to discuss with the player.

“IfeanyiUbah did not do any of these. Instead, they went ahead to poach our player and the implication is that the player’s concentration and commitment could be impaired.

“So we have written to the LMC. We are expecting their response any moment from now. We did not place the player on transfer. This is modern day football. The era of impunity is over because we live and operate in modern time not in the jungle.”

Buhari neglected Utomi, Falae, Ezekwesili for ‘mosquito economic team’ – OPC founder, Fasheun

Buhari neglected Utomi, Falae, Ezekwesili for ‘mosquito economic team’ – OPC founder, Fasheun

Dr. Fredrick Fasheun

Founder of Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, Dr. Frederick Fasehun has averred that Nigeria is presently having serious economic challenges because of President Muhammadu Buhari’s choice of a “mosquito economic team” in neglect of those who can advise him on how to run the economy.

Speaking on Wednesday in an interview with the Independent, Fasehun, who is the National Chairman of the Unity Party of Nigeria, UPN, said the president has done nothing in his first year in office, adding that the President is left with just three more years to either change those misadvising him or bring in fresh experts.

“Four years in the life of a country is a short time. I am appealing to every Nigerian not to breach the peace of the country. Out of the four years of Buhari’s tenure, he has about three years more, let us give him time and see what he would do right or wrong. So far, I have not seen what he has done right, but he has three years more to prove himself whether to change those who are misadvising him or to bring in fresh experts.

“I happen to know that one of the writers of economic channel that the present government should keep is Pat Utomi. Nigerians know that Utomi is a guru in all aspect of the economy. Unfortunately, when Buhari was compiling his cabinet, he left out the man who was a torch light to the administration.

“Should Utomi be left out in the economic team? Should people like Olu Falae, Oby Ezekwesili and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, a natural team for the president be ignored? Unfortunately, he chose to go for a mosquito economic team and that is why we are having the problem we are facing today.

“The economy should not be a partisan thing; it is supposed to be a natural one. Let the good people of this country like the Balarabe Musas the Ciromas and the Umars continue to advise the government on the right path to go. I don’t want anybody to do anything that would disrupt the peace of the country but give the President the remaining time and see what he would do,” he said.

Allocate grazing land for our cattle – Fulani herdsmen beg Cross River Governor

Allocate grazing land for our cattle – Fulani herdsmen beg Cross River Governor

Fulani herdsmen in Cross River State on Wednesday urged the state Governor, Prof. Ben Ayade to allocate grazing land for their cattle.

Leader of the Hausa/Fulani community in the state, Mr Sani Baba-Gombe, who made the passionate appeal in Calabar, the state capital, explained that the major challenge facing herdsmen in the state was a grazing land, hence the need for the state government to come to their aid.

According to Baba-Gombe, the land if allocated will put an end to the crisis between farmers/ herdsmen in the state, adding that it would also stop herdsmen from encroaching into people’s farmlands in search of feed for their animals.


“We use to instruct our people to always ask for permission before entering into any land to graze. If I were to be a farmer, I won’t be pleased if any cattle come along to destroy my crops.

“If a grazing land is provided, the animals would not stray into farms and this would further prevent any future crisis between herdsmen and farmers in the state.

“All we are appealing for is a grazing land that is different from the farmlands; this would help us to stop encroaching into people’s farmlands in search of food for our cattle.

“We have also sensitised our people to always have a good understanding with their host communities,’’ he said.

I will do everything possible to protect oil facilities in Niger Delta — Buhari

I will do everything possible to protect oil facilities in Niger Delta — Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to do all within his powers to ensure the security of oil installations in the Niger Delta region.

The President, who was represented by the Secretary to Government of the Federation, Babachir David Lawal, gave the assurance at a lecture organised by the Save Democracy Group Africa, to mark this year’s democracy day in Abuja on Tuesday.

Buhari’s assurance is coming at the heels of several attacks on oil pipelines by resurgent militant group, the Niger Delta Avenger, with Chevron Nigeria Limited being the worst hit.


According to Buhari, while he seeks a non-military solution to the vandalism and destruction of oil facilities in the Niger Delta region, he would not succumb to intimidation and blackmail by militants.

“You will agree with me that two major reasons why our economy is in such a deplorable condition is the slump in crude oil prices.

“It is also due to decline in production as a result of the recent upsurge in activities of criminals and saboteurs in the oil producing region.

“While the control of the selling price of our crude oil is not solely in our hands, the challenge of militancy, criminality and vandalism is solely within our control.


“I, therefore, wish to restate that I have directed all the nation’s security outfits to take all steps necessary to secure the oil facilities and other government assets in the Niger Delta region.

“While our doors are open to dialogue, political and non-military solution on the matter, this government will not succumb to intimidation and blackmail by criminal element, coming to inflict further unnecessary social and economic hardship on the citizens.’’

The President further urged those behind the attacks on oil facilities to desist from the act or face the consequences.

Let’s face it, life outside senate is suffocating, says senator

James Manager, a senator from Delta state, has called for a “special package” for ex-senators, saying that life outside the upper legislative chamber is suffocating.

Manager said this while eulogising the late Umar Hambagda‎, an ex-senator from Borno south senatorial district, on the floor of the senate on Wednesday.

He said that the late ex-senator was not well taken care of after he left the senate.

“Let’s face it, life outside the senate is suffocating,” he said.

In response, Senate President Bukola Saraki said that the senate would work out an internal mechanism of aiding ex-members.

‎Earlier, Ali Ndume, senate leader, had raised a point of order to announce the passing of Hambagda, who was in the fifth and sixth senate.

He said that the deceased was survived by a wife and 16 children.

Meanwhile, the senate has considered the request of President Muhammadu Buhari on the 2016 budget proposal for the Niger Delta Development Commission (NNDC)‎ and that of the federal capital territory (FCT).

Saraki‎ referred the budget proposals to the appropriate committees for more legislative treatment.

Fulfill your campaign promises or risk revolution in Nigeria – Cardinal Okogie warns Buhari

Fulfill your campaign promises or risk revolution in Nigeria – Cardinal Okogie warns Buhari

Cardinal Okogie

Archbishop Emeritus of Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos, Anthony Cardinal Okogie has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to return to his campaign promises to Nigeria or risk a revolution.

Speaking with reporters yesterday in Lagos, the cardinal claimed that one year after inauguration, the Buhari-led government has derailed from its promises to the people, stressing that the poor masses now roam about without proper guidance while majority are left in penury in the midst of plenty.

According to Okogie, “The swearing in of the APC government last year was perceived as a major milestone in the people’s quest for positive change and improvement in their quality of life. But a year later, thousands of workers are being laid off every day, the value of the Naira is falling drastically, while many states are owing their workers many months of unpaid salaries.”


Pointing out the high poverty level among the youths in the last one year of the current administration, the Cardinal warned that the Federal Government must tread softly with the Biafra agitators and Niger Delta Avengers, noting that there was so much poverty among the youth.

“There is a popular saying that to jaw jaw is better than to war war, I am aware that the Niger Delta Avengers have reeled out a number of conditions to be met before seizing further attacks on oil installations. I am equally aware that President Buhari has vowed to deal decisively with the militants.

“While condemning the disruption of our oil facilities under any guise, I equally want to, stress that the use of military force is not a solution,” noting that option of military would only aggravate the situation,” he said.

Many PDP members are defecting to newly formed PMP – National Chairman

Many PDP members are defecting to newly formed PMP – National Chairman

Chief Perry Opara

The newly formed Peoples Mega Party, PMP, has disclosed that many members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, have joined its fold.

National chairman of the party, Chief Perry Opara, who made this claim at the inauguration of the party’s new national administrative headquarters in Abuja, on Tuesday, said the party had resisted attempts by moneybags from other political parties to hijack it.

Disclosing that some rich politicians had been approaching the party leaders with tempting offers to take over the party, he said he told them that the party was not for sale as the vision behind its formation was to have a platform that young Nigerians could use to contest elective offices in future.


Opara said: “Five days ago, a group of PDP members came here to say they are defecting to the PMP.

“PDP professionals’ forum has also declared for the PMP, while some aggrieved members of PDP stakeholders’ forum in Abuja also defected to the PMP.”

He, however, assured that the, “hidden powers and individuals behind the PMP will be unveiled in the next seven weeks,” to put to rest speculations over the sponsors of the new party.

PMP, which is seeking registration from the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, as one of the recognised political parties in the country, also stated that some members of the Labour Party, LP, and the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, had made similar advances.


Reacting to the staggering amount charged by political parties in the country as nomination fees, Opara said: “We are going to reduce the cost of elections so that young professionals can have opportunity to contest.”

Governors owing salaries despite security votes, IGR are corrupt – TUC President

Governors owing salaries despite security votes, IGR are corrupt – TUC President

Comrade Bobboi Kaigama

President of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) Comrade Bobboi Kaigama, has expressed dismay over security votes for governors and other political office holders, describing it as an avenue for corruption.

At a press conference in Jalingo, Taraba State, yesterday, Kaigama, said while security votes were often diverted, most governors also do not make public, expenditure of their internally generated revenue.

Kaigama disclosed that the TUC was collaborating with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) to ensure that governors were made to account for the bailout funds released to their respective states by the federal government.


The TUC leader recalled that the first condition before states were created was that they should be able to pay their workers’ salaries with the internally generated revenue of their states.

“It is disheartening to note that in spite of billions of naira that monthly accrue to states from the federation account including their own internally generated revenue they cannot pay salaries,” he noted.

Kaigama called on the EFCC and the ICPC to prosecute all corrupt political office holders.

We will use force to subdue Niger Delta Avengers, not negotiation – Army

We will use force to subdue Niger Delta Avengers, not negotiation – Army

The Nigerian Army on Tuesday insisted that it will continue to use force until leaders of resurgent militant groups in the Niger Delta region are arrested.

It dismissed negotiation with the militant group, Niger Delta Avengers, which has launched several attacks on oil installations and weakened crude oil production in the region.

Represented by Brig.Gen. J. Hamakim, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.Gen. Tukur Burutai said this in Abuja while justifying the Army’s ongoing onslaught in Gbaramatu, Delta State.


During the conference on Tuesday, the Army was accused of failing to explore dialogue with the Niger Delta militants but resorting to the use of force, which the people said could lead to war in the region.

The Army was also accused, during the event, of attacking members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, who were allegedly demonstrating peacefully in Onitsha, Anambra State, on Monday.

Hamakim while reacting claims that the Army has refused to explore dialogue with militants said there was no sign that the Niger Delta Avengers’ members were ready for talks.

According to Hamakim, “I quite agree that dialogue is very important. But where it is not too obvious that the adversary is ready to come out and talk, you can also force such a person.


“I think that is what the Nigerian Army is trying to do. Yes, we don’t know the group’s leader, for now; that is the only option, possibly we have to bring the people out to know who you can talk with.”

The representative of the army Chief stated that the activities of the group has reduced the nation’s oil production to 1.1 million out of 2.2 million barrels per day.

Hamakim denied the claim that soldiers who were involved in the operations in Gbaramatu were killing innocent residents and raping women.

“We have done our investigation and nothing like that is happening,” he said.

He however, described the demonstrations by supporters of the Biafra struggle that left several people dead and others injured in the South East as violent.

“Remember that lives were lost; policemen were killed; some were thrown overboard and the military has rules of engagement.

“The rule of engagement is that if you feel threatened, you have the mandate to respond. What we can say is that that was not at all a demonstration that you can say was peaceful,” he added.

I gave Lagos banker fake special soap to get rich, defrauded him of N2.5m – Herbalist

I gave Lagos banker fake special soap to get rich, defrauded him of N2.5m – Herbalist

Operatives of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested a 33-year-old herbalist, Seye Olufokunbi, who defrauded a Lagos banker, simply identified as Lekan.

Olufokunbi defrauded the banker to the tune of N2.5m after he asked him to pay for a ‘special soap.’

The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, SP Dolapo Badmos, on Tuesday paraded the suspect before newsmen at the command headquarters in Ikeja.


She said the suspect would be arraigned in court at the end of investigation.

Badmos advised members of the public to be wary of those they transacted business with.

“We are still hunting for the fleeing members of the syndicate and at the end, we will make them face justice,” the PPRO added.

In his confession, the herbalist said he told Lekan, who worked in one of the banks on the Victoria Island, that the soap, when kept in a box for two days, would produce a lot of money.


The money magic reportedly failed, leading to a petition to the state Police Command Rapid Response Squad, RRS, in February 2016.

Officials of the Command were said to have trailed and arrested Olufokunbi in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State.

Olufokunbi said he was initially selling herbs to Lekan before the banker told him to perform money ritual for him.

“I have known Lekan for a long time and he is my customer. He was initially patronising me for herbs for his ailment but he later approached me for money ritual, saying the money he was making as a banker was not enough for him. I said I could do it if he could give me N2.5m.

“He brought the money and I gave him a bar of soap. I told him to keep the soap in a box for two days, after which he should check the box and he would see a lot of money.

“He did that, but it failed, he then reported me to the police, who arrested me,” the suspect added, noting that he had been into the job since 2011.

“I don’t work alone, I have members. I got N500, 000 from the money the victim paid, while the rest of the money was shared among the group members.

“I was initiated into this job by my brother. My ex-wife, whom I divorced after a disagreement, is not aware I am doing this.

“I was doing this because after I finished studying Business Administration in 2002 in a polytechnic in Oyo State, I couldn’t get any good job,” the herbalist stated.

Muhammad Babandede

Newly appointed Comptroller-General, C-G, of the Nigeria Immigration Service, NIS, Muhammad Babandede has told Zonal Coordinators and Comptrollers of the Service that he does not want their “blood money”, which he defined as ‘returns’ from “organized crime law enforcement.”

He stated this yesterday at the maiden briefing of comptrollers and other senior officers at the NIS headquarters in Abuja where the C-G unveiled his vision and agenda for the Service. Noting that indiscipline and corruption have become the order of the day, he described himself as a missionary for the realization of greatness for the NIS as well as a missionary of justice and fairness.

Babandede expressed worry over what Immigration officers are doing in liberated territories in the troubled Northeast, lamenting that, “heartless Immigration officers set illegal check points at hinterland to bully and extort money from citizens already devastated by Boko Haram insurgency.” He then declared that he will not accept the Service being turned to “the 2nd grade of Boko Haram”.


Promising to run a most efficient service delivery system in the history of the NIS, he vowed to make more leaders out of the officers, adding that he will empower and build the capacity of all officers at every level of service delivery.

Blame yourselves, not Buhari for South-East woes – Group tells Igbo leaders

Blame yourselves, not Buhari for South-East woes – Group tells Igbo leaders

The Buhari South-East Youth Movement, BUSEYM, has warned politicians in the South-East geo-political zone of the danger of creating fathom political issues in the zone and blaming same on President Muhammadu Buhari, stressing that the current political configuration of the country which had placed South-East in the opposition was neither created nor caused by the President.
The group, in a statement jointly signed by its director-general, Engr.

Nwabueze Onwuneme and national publicity secretary, Comrade Igwe Samuel Obinna and made available to newsmen in Owerri, was reacting to some statements credited to some speakers in an anniversary lecture held by Alaigbo Development Union in Enugu as reported by a national daily on May 28, 2016.

Stressing that it did not wish to join issues with some of the personalities who gathered recently in Enugu to make their assertions, BUSEYM urged the region’s political leaders who have not contributed to the socio-economic development of the zone to apologise for their ineffectual leadership rather than resort to the blame game and weaving of fiction.

While regretting the position of some Igbo elites who believe that the Buhari administration had relegated the Igbo to the background, it wondered how they arrived at this conclusion.

It accused the elites of failing to ask questions on the supposed developmental projects that should have accrued to the Igbo when the PDP was at the helm of affairs and totally neglected the zone as seen in the near collapse of infrastructure/socio-economic growth of the zone. It said these problems were not brought about by just one year in office of the APC led administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The statement reads, “Lest we forget in that era we had Igbo as Senate President, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Minister of Finance and Co-ordinating minister of the Economy, Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria to mention but a few.

“But in those 16 years it is regrettable to note that projects that were dear to the hearts of Igbos were not executed as seen in the Second Niger Bridge and Enugu-Onitsha which ditto till now was not done till the advent of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration which just of recent backed words with action by the release of N13billion and N5.5b respectively for the projects”

BUSEYM maintained that while they would not cross swords with any individual/group, their position is that those seeking relevance in the polity should come up with clearly stated programmes that would contribute to the upliftment and betterment of the wellbeing of the people. It advised against wiping up tribal/religious sentiments which has been the bane of the Nigerian nation and its people.

The group further maintained that Buhari had been very fair in his treatment of all tribes in the nation and Ndi Igbo inclusive as seen with the appointment of six Igbo sons as Ministers in the federal executive council.

The group advised that rather than trade blames or fan the embers of disunity, Igbo elites should re-strategise and re-align their political objectives and jettison platforms and personalities who had their turn, but failed to deliver.

“Let me again appreciate the work of the National Assembly for the painstaking and consensual work they did with the Executive to deliver the 2016 Appropriation Act.

“I hereby re-state the commitment of this administration to observe the principles of separation of powers which define and delineate the functions and powers of each arm of government.

“Thus far, we in the executive have restricted ourselves to our constitutional roles. Therefore I, as the President, and we as the Executive arm of government will not interfere in the functions, functioning and process of the Legislature nor the Judiciary.

“In the same vein, I urge other arms of government to please appraise and ensure that each action conceived and taken by it is in strict accord with its constitutionally limited powers.

“I urge you as legislators and the legislature to take out time and communicate with your constituents and other Nigerians the policies of the government which are based on laws approved by the National Assembly.”

BREAKING: IGP orders disarmament of IPOB

‎Solomon Arase, inspector-general of police (IGP), has ordered the immediate disarmament of members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Arase’s order followed the killing some police officers in Asaba, Delta state, by a mob of Biafra campaigners on Monday.

What killed Abacha also killed Abiola, I have video evidence against Yoruba people – Al-Mustapha

What killed Abacha also killed Abiola, I have video evidence against Yoruba people – Al-Mustapha

Major Hamza Al-Mustapha

A former Chief Security Officer to the late Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha, Major Hamza Al-Mustapha, Monday, said he would soon open up on what actually killed his boss and the acclaimed winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election, Chief Bashorun MKO Abiola.

Al-Mustapha said he would unveil the untold story of how the duo died in his new book, Mustapha’s Memoirs, which, according to him, is still being worked on.

Al-Mustapha, who addressed journalists in Lagos yesterday, said one thing killed his boss and the late MKO.


He said: “For instance, when Chief MKO Abiola was in prison, many notable Nigerians visited him. They will visit him in the morning, and when they come back to the Villa in the evening to see Abacha, they would say a different thing entirely.

“Unknown to these notable Nigerians, particularly notable Yoruba personalities, who visited Abiola, their visits were recorded on video. I did the video recording without their knowledge.

“These people would visit Abiola and come back to tell government a different thing about him.

“These same people would still go and tell Abiola a different thing about government. They are on video. The agencies of government have these videos evidence.


“These same people told MKO Abiola never to accept any compromise or negotiations. They advised him never to come back home without his mandate. All these things are on video.

“Of all the Yoruba leaders, only Oba Tejuosho told MKO Abiola the truth: to accept the conditional bail and go home.

“Only Oba Tejuosho told MKO Abiola that Abacha was his friend, urging him to reconcile with Abacha who was ready for reconciliation. It was Oba Tejuosho who told MKO Abiola that he still had the goodwill and would win if he re-contests after Abacha.

“What killed Abacha is what killed MKO Abiola. But I would reveal that after my court case, still at the Supreme Court. I would publish a book which has three volumes— the Mustapha’s Memoirs, which will tell what happened under Abacha and how he died.”

On Abacha loot still being returned to the country from abroad, 18 years after his death, Al-Mustapha said he was shocked the first time he heard of Abacha’s loot.

He added that most of what was today known in the media as Abacha’s loot were mere media campaigns aimed at smearing the late Sani Abacha’s image by local and international persons he stepped on their toes while he was Head of State.

Also, Al-Mustapha restated his call for a public debate, where former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, would come to backup claims in his infamous 18-page letter that he (Al-Mustapha) was contracted to head a killer squad of 1,000 snipers for former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, ahead of the 2015 general elections.

He said: “Nobody contracted me to catch 1,000 mosquitoes under the Jonathan administration, let alone human beings. I am Al-Mustapha. I have my background away from the propaganda peddled by the likes of Obasanjo.

“Obasanjo has had his day. I am doing my investigation and I have discovered so many things as to what made him (Obasanjo) make such allegation. I have it. I will release it very soon and that is why I have challenged him to an open debate. “Obasanjo is my senior in the force; he was a former Military Head of State, but when issues of law and rights of man are being discussed, definitely equality comes to the fore.

“You cannot put an allegation against your junior because you are a senior, and you believe the junior would keep quiet. No, I would not. That would amount to ignorance. I am not ignorant about our laws.

“I challenge Obasanjo to an open debate so that he can substantiate his allegations before the whole world; but he is yet to oblige the challenge.

“Thank God a new government is here today, where he (Obasanjo) can bring up the issue, requesting it to investigate and, if there is any contract between Jonathan and I to catch one single mosquito, I want to say that I am guilty and want to be tried.”

Ogoni clean-up: Buhari visits Niger Delta June 2 amid bombing of installations

Ogoni clean-up: Buhari visits Niger Delta June 2 amid bombing of installations

President Muhammadu Buhari will launch the Ogoni land clean-up on June 2, a statement has said.

This was contained in a statement issued by Chijioke Amu-Nnadi, the Head of Corporate Affairs unit of the Niger Delta Development Commission, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Monday.

It stated that the Minister of the Environment, Amina Mohammed, confirmed the date when she visited Bodo in Gokana Local Government Area of the state to inspect an oil spill clean-up demonstration.


The statement quoted Mohammed as saying that the President had given assurances that the area would be cleaned-up in fulfilment of his electioneering promise to people of the Niger Delta.

She was quoted as having said: “I can confirm that President Buhari will visit Ogoni land on June 2 to flag-off clean-up of oil spills in the area as recommended in the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) report.

“Buhari would return to Ogoni land where he inaugurated a fish pond in 1984 where the once flourishing pond regrettably had been destroyed by oil pollution.

“The Federal Government is coming back to restore the ecosystem to what it used to be and as such restore the peoples’ source of livelihood.


“We are not just committed to implementing the UNEP report but we are also going beyond that by taking steps to improve security, good governance and economy of the Niger Delta region.

“I can assure that the clean-up exercise is only the beginning, as Mr President is focused on restoring hope to people of the region.”

Mohammed solicited support of all stakeholders to make the exercise a success.

The statement also quoted Ibim Semenitari, the Acting Managing Director of the NDDC, as saying that the clean was of utmost importance to the commission.

Semenitari lauded the President for taking steps to fulfil his electioneering promise of improving welfare and living conditions of people of Ogoni and others in the region.

She said: “Ogonis are united behind this effort by the Federal Government to clean up their environment, and as such, the people will help in ensuring sustainability of the clean-up.”

Semenitari said NDDC, through the Niger Delta Regional Development Master Plan Forum, would mobilise and coordinate support of various stakeholders to make the clean-up a success.

The UNEP report was released in September 2011, with a call on the Nigeria and multinational oil companies to clean-up Ogoniland.

2016 budget was a nasty experience, I’ve never heard of ‘padding’ – Buhari

2016 budget was a nasty experience, I’ve never heard of ‘padding’ – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has described the process that finally led to the signing of the 2016 budget as “a nasty experience for us”.

Buhari said the issue of “padding” made the budget process more difficult for him and members of the Federal Executive Council, as some of them heard about it for the time.


Buhari, on Monday told State House Correspondents that: “Things were even more difficult during the budget, which you all know about.

“For somebody like me, for the first time, I heard what is called padding.

“So, really, it was a nasty experience for us. It was also a nasty experience for some of the ministers who were never in government, for them to sit down day and night to work.

“I saw them, some of them literarily lost weight because they were sleeping less, eating less and working on every kobo to be spent.”


Buhari acknowledged that the country’s reliance on one commodity, oil, had adversely affected the nation’s economy.

He said: “This is the condition we found ourselves and this change mantra had to go through hell up till yesterday.”

PDP needs Sheriff, Governors begging him to withdraw suit – Taraba Governor

PDP needs Sheriff, Governors begging him to withdraw suit – Taraba Governor

Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku has disclosed that PDP governors are begging the ousted chairman of the party, Senator Ali Madu Sheriff, to withdraw the court case he instituted challenging his removal.

Ishaku told newsmen in Jalingo yesterday that Sheriff had done his best for the party and deserved to be honoured.

Ishaku recalled that he and the governor of Gombe State, Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo, endorsed Sheriff as the only candidate for the party’s chairmanship from North-East.


He said they, however, changed their mind at the party’s national convention held in Port Harcourt, when Sheriff was rejected by 10 out of 12 governors.

“It’s only myself and Dankwambo that supported Sheriff at the convention and we have no option than to allow the voice of the majority to prevail,” Ishaku said.

He said the only solution was for Sheriff to withdraw his suit from the court, complaining that the treatment Sheriff got was not proper as he did his best for PDP.

‘‘We need people like Sheriff in the PDP and therefore, we must beg him to withdraw his case because, failure to do that could lead to more crises,” he said.
