I Will Not Obey Your Suspension Order, NHIS Boss Tells Nigeria’s Health Minister


The suspended Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme, NHIS, Usman Yusuf, has officially replied the Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole.

In his letter dated July 12 on the official letterhead of the NHIS, Mr. Yusuf said he would not comply with the July 6 suspension order.

He acknowledged receiving the letter directing he proceeds on a three months suspension, but gave five reasons why he would not comply with the suspension.

Mr. Yusuf, 54, took over the state-run health insurance provider on July 29, 2016. But his reign at the
health ministry parastatal has been fraught with allegations of fraud.

The suspension came weeks after the Senate launched investigations into his activities as the NHIS chief.

The lawmakers accused Mr. Yusuf of “corrupt expenditure of N292 million” which he allegedly spent on health care training “without recourse to any appropriate approving authority.”

The NHIS chief has denied any wrongdoing.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives asked the health minister to recall Mr. Yusuf.

Mr. Adewole had ordered the suspension to allow for unhindered investigation of the corruption allegations.

I Became 33rd Wife When He Touched My Buttocks, Wanted Criminal’s Wife Tells Court

 
The wife of a wanted criminal suspect, Terwase Akwaza, Mrs. Queen Akwaza, who was arraigned by the Benue Police Command, yesterday, over alleged refusal to disclose her husband’s whereabouts, has disclosed how she became the criminal’s 33rd wife.

Mrs. Akwaza, who appeared before a Makurdi chief magistrate’s court, was charged with criminal conspiracy, screening of robbery and kidnapping recruits and acts of terrorism.

However, Queen Akwaza had earlier told the police that she became the criminal’s wife when he touched her buttocks in the market.

Her words: “Immediately after that touch, I followed him and have been living with him since. “I am his 33rd wife; any woman he touches, ends up with him.”


The suspect claimed that the only child from the union, a girl, was killed and buried by the husband, Terwase Akwaza, also know as Ghana.

Yesterday, the prosecutor, Mr. Hyacinth Gbakor, told the court that the offences committed by Queen Akwaza are punishable under Sections 1(2)(b), 6(a)(b)(c) of the Robbery and Firearms Acts, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004, and Section 1(2) of Terrorism (prevention)(Amendment) Act, 2013.

Gbakor told the court that on June 15, a team of Police Joint Task Force Patrol, led by Mr. Simon Majinga, arrested eight persons, who were arraigned in the same court, on July 7, for the same crimes.

He said that Mrs. Akwaza was among the suspects, but was still at large, at the time of that arrest.

According to Gbakor, “the team reported that the suspects were carrying out acts of kidnapping, hostage taking and terrorism. It said that the criminals, led by Akwaza, his wife, Queen, and one Teryima Ihimbe, operated around Katsina-Ala, Kwande, Ukum and Vandeikya areas of Benue.”

He added that during police investigation, it was also discovered that Mrs. Akwaza was the brain behind the kidnappings and other nefarious acts spearheaded by Zendedoo Tsekaa, one of the suspects arraigned earlier.

Gbakor said that Mrs. Akwaza was arrested on July 7, and she confessed to the crimes.

Though no plea was taken for want of jurisdiction, Chief Magistrate Isaac Ajim ordered that the accused be remanded in prison’s custody and adjourned the matter to August 8 for further mention.

Ajim also ordered the prison authorities to give her a com-prehensive medical check up.

Mother Exchanges 2-Month-Old Baby For Rice, Cement, N200,000


A 20-year-old woman, Chioma Fidelis, has confessed to how she parted with her two months old son, Favour Fidelis, in exchange for half a bag of rice, six chairs, cement and N200,000 cash.

Speaking to newsmen today when she and her accomplices were paraded by the police in Imo State, Chioma said she got pregnant out of wedlock, and that being unable to cater for the newborn, she opted to batter him for the aforementioned items.

Chioma, who hails from Ehime Mbano LGA of Imo State, said she had no option but to accept the offer, allegedly because the baby was suffering from kwashiorkor, and also because she had no
husband to take care of her and the child.

Her female accomplice, one Chidimma Unakalamba, reportedly confessed to selling the baby boy to a couple, Mr. and Mrs. Jonas Anyanwu, who allegedly were in dire need of a male child.

She said the baby was sold for N600,000 to the couple. The baby has been recovered, though.

But a mild drama ensued when the couple insisted that they paid N700,000 for the child.

Unakalamba then admitted that she deducted N137,000 she spent on the child’s medical bills, and that she gave the mother N200,000 and pocketed the remaining.

Evans Hearing: Judge Fines Lawyer For Total Absence

 
Suspected kidnap kingpin, Chukwudumeme Onwuamadike, aka Evans’ lawyer Olukoya Ogungbeje was yesterday slammed N20,000 “punitive cost” for professional misconduct.
Justice Abdulazeez Anka of the Federal High Court, Lagos, said the cost must be paid before July 20.
Evans’ fundamental rights case was billed to be heard by the Judge, but his lawyer wrote, claiming to be ill. Ogungbeje apologised for his absence and asked for adjournment. But, Mr Emmanuel Eze, who represented Lagos State Commissioner of Police, opposed Ogungbeje’s application for adjournment.
He said the applicant’s lawyer did not inform the police that he would be absent, adding that any other lawyer from Ogungbeje’s office could have come to represent Evans.

According to him, it is an “affront” to the court for Ogungbeje not to send another lawyer to stand in for him.
“In view of this, we are of the view that the applicant’s counsel is most unserious with this application. We, therefore, ask for a punitive cost of N100,000 against the applicant and his counsel,” he said.
Awarding the N20,000 cost, Justice Anka said: “Counsel wrote a letter seeking for an adjournment without copying the prosecution. This, to me, is unprofessional. The court hereby warns counsel to desist from such type of practice.”
The judge said the facts before him showed that the applicant was still in police custody.
Hearing continues on July 20.

Man In love With Dead Brother’s Widow Speaks… May Be You Should Hear Him Before Commenting


So many people have ridiculed them with some even saying may be his late brother was murdered so they can have their way. But the guy has spoken up now.  May be you should read first before you judge.

The brother of a man found dead on the sofa has defended his relationship with his dead brother's  wife – saying it’s natural to want to help.

Now Mikey’s younger brother, dad-of-three Chris, who works as an electrician, has spoken out about
the sudden loss of his sibling.

He said: “Losing Mikey came as such a shock, I couldn’t even process it for hours. It felt like
someone had stuck a knife in my gut.

“I drove straight round there to be with Ashley because she had no-one else. Since then I have just been on autopilot mode trying to look after my family.

“Mikey and I were very very close. We always shared our problems with each other and we spoke most days.

“We’re a close family and Ashley and I have been great friends for 10 years but since the loss we’ve become best friends. I’ve been a rock for her and she’s been a rock for me.

“My mum finds a lot of comfort in seeing us support each other and I know Mikey would be happy to see I’m helping his wife and kids. I don’t know any brother who wouldn’t.”

He added: “He would be turning in his grave at all the vile comments we’ve been getting. It’s been a devastating year and this is the last thing we need.

“I am here to support Ashley and be a father figure for the kids but they are very clear on the fact that I am their uncle.”

Ashley first hit the headlines after she urged others to kiss their loved ones goodnight after losing her beloved husband Mikey, saying she was devastated that the last words the couple exchanged were in anger.

The 36-year-old had returned to the pair’s home after a 16-hour shift on May 16 of this year, and was banished to the couch after the fight.

She had no idea he had been working so hard to save money for the couple to be able to travel to Prague for their anniversary on July 3.

Kemi Olunloyo Calls Seyi Law Out, Says ‘Your Baby Still Fat’, Then Insults His Mom


Apparently some bloggers reported that Seyi Law rejoiced when Kemi Olunloyo was jailed in Port Harcourt and Aunty Kemi is probably just seeing this or do we say she just waited till today- tonight precisely before responding? Kemi went in on him so bad, again she called his baby fat, what actually made Seyi Law call her out before now. What she wrote… Phew! Sigh! Sigh!!

MY REPLY TO @SEYILAW1 the complete IMBECILE OF A COMEDIAN. I GUESS I CAN SAY I DID NOT REJOICE WHEN I HEARD HE WASN'T THE ONE BADOO CULTISTS KILLED...
RIGHT?

I heard you were happy I went to prison @seyilaw1. Your baby is still FAT AND OBESE. Take lessons from a health professional. There are lots of children in prison and all are healthier than Tiwa. I don't sugarcoat things. Your baby could hardly move in one crawling video. Stop overfeeding her. I heard someone called her Kungfu panda. All these fake fans hyping her baby fat are laughing behind you.


I went back to prison for another 24hrs due to a technicality and was glad to go back to check up on our 4 newborns and 5 toddlers. The food is better than your mom's cooking. There is no prison food. You cook your own food. Now I go weekly to prison to drop off supplies and money for inmates with babies and IPOB protesters forgotten by Nnamdi Kanu.

Excellence, Precious and some of those babies in there need our help, instead u are busy rejoicing about people going to prison, a pharmacist who advised u of your child's potential health danger. Shame on you and YOUR dumbass comedy. I highly regret interviewing you giving u the exposure to my 27 million global blog readers. Go and read more about #childobesity. @majeayida pls forgive my anger here. As a foremost fitness trainer in Nigeria, you promised to do a write up to address fitness in children and childhood obesity but I was locked up for posting a news tip.

People like Seyi should focus on people giving them correct info rather than promoting fake cybercrime laws against media professionals. As soon as you are back, pls DM. Sorry about the #Lekki floods. Thanks everyone for reading.

Lol Caitlyn Jenner Has Something To Say About Rob Leaking Chyna's Nudes


Caitlyn Jenner opened up about her strained relationship with Rob Kardashian in the wake of the Blac Chyna scandal, calling him "stupid" for leaking her nude photos online.

Jenner was a guest co-host on "The View" today, where the women took part in a panel discussion with Chyna's lawyer and fellow client/"The O.C." alum Mischa Barton, who recently went through a revenge porn case of her own.

After referencing Kim Kardashian by joking she "know[s] nothing about porn tapes," Caitlyn shared
her thoughts on Rob and revealed how distant the two really are.

"I don't know the Blac Chyna/Rob thing. Rob was stupid for doing that, he kind of apologized," she said. "I've never met Blac Chyna, I've never met the kid, Rob I haven't had a serious conversation with in years, so I've kind of been out of that scene."

Caitlyn went on to say some "guys can be really stupid and do stupid things," adding she's warned her children about picking their friends carefully. "It's tough to do because you can be tremendously deceived," she added, referencing Barton, "and it's not your fault but you gotta pick your friends wisely."

Barton recently reached a settlement with an ex-boyfriend who attempted to sell a sex tape with her that was made without her knowledge.

"I was shocked, I couldn't believe, I didn't want to believe it," Barton said, explaining her reaction to the tape's existence. "I'm shocked people aren't aware how illegal it is and you can never surreptitiously film someone and when I found out he was bragging about it, I was devastated to learn it was most likely true."

"I was in love with him, I trusted him, I thought he cared about me and later learned he had ulterior motives," she added.

Though she said she was "terrified" to go public with her fight, she added it "feels good when you do stand up for your rights."

'I Never Played Tennis For Money' - Expectant Mom, Serena Williams


Serena Williams, 35, recently told Uninterrupted exactly how she handled her first million dollar check, which she says she “never touched.”

“I just put it in the bank and I just remember I went through the drive through to deposit my check,” she said. “They were like, ‘I think you need to come in for this.’ So I ended up going inside.”

She continued, “I should have taken a picture of it. Selfies didn’t exist back then.”

As Williams’ career took off, so did her finances, but the expectant mother says it was just a
byproduct of her passion for tennis.

“I’ve actually never played for money. I thought you would just go out there and you would hold a trophy,” she said. “Not once did I think about a check. In fact, when I first turned pro, you had to go pick up your check.”

“At the end of the year, the tournament directors would literally hand me the check because I would never go get it,” she said. “I just played for the love of the sport.”

Williams is due to welcome her first child in September, but that isn’t keeping her off the court.

Earlier this month, she posted a video of herself practicing.

I Have Only Dated One Girl & I Lost My Virginity To Her When I Relocated To Lagos - Humblesmith


Humble has said he was a virgin till he relocated to Lagos. In a chat with Saturday beats he explained the journey of his virginity and how he lost it in lagos.

“I was born and brought up in Ebonyi State but I was a virgin till I came to Lagos. I remained a virgin when I left Ebonyi in 2009 for Asaba where I spent three years. I came to Lagos in 2012 where I lost my virginity.

 When I lost my virginity it was fun. The truth is that if you taste something you have never tasted, if it is bitter you would never try it again, but if it is not, you may want to ask for more. For me, it was
part of development and growing up.

 I still keep in touch with the lady I lost my virginity to because she has been seeing what I have been doing and we have been communicating. She comments that she is proud of me. She was the first and only girl I ever dated. At the moment, I am single.

“I am a straightforward person and I don’t think I should hide anything because I am not a kid. I am an entertainer and I am ready for anything. It is better you say the truth. I believe that it is good to teach your kids and tell them the truth so that they would know the way to follow,” he said.

The Osinachi singer also says he cant have a babymama,and spoke about his colleagues who already have a child out of wedlock; “I don’t have a baby mama but it is not a bad idea whether you intentionally or mistakenly impregnated somebody and you guys decided to keep it. I don’t have a girlfriend and I am sure it would never happen,” he said.

How My Life Changed As I Went To Buy Kerosine For My Mother - Comedian Omobaba


In a chat with Saturday Beats, the comedian who doubles as a singer said that his life changed while he was going to buy kerosene for his mother.

He explained that while he was on his way, he saw an opportunity to showcase his talent and he embraced it.

Omobaba said, “The first time I ever performed in public, it was an open field concert that was organised by different churches and they invited choristers from different churches. I was not billed
to perform because my parents actually sent me to buy kerosene.

 I saw them setting up on my way to get the kerosene, then I approached them and asked if I could perform as a comedian but they said that it was strictly music. I told them to allow me to sing even though I did not come with my band; they said that I could perform comedy for five minutes instead and if they found out I was not funny, they would cut me off. I eventually performed for 20 minutes that day,” he said.

The comedian who prides himself as being the finest entertainer in the country further said that things had not been always rosy for him because the next time he had an opportunity to perform, instead of being paid, he had to pay the organisers.

“The truth is that the next time I had the opportunity to perform, I was not paid; in fact, I paid the organisers of the show about N500 for them to allow me to perform. Eventually, during the course of my career when I started getting paid, I was given N400.

 I thank God for my life because I made my first million before I turned 27 years old. The money was paid in two instalments for the same gig,” he said.

Banker Loses Wife To Kidnappers Five Weeks After Wedding


A banker, who only gave his name as Kingsley, has lamented the loss of his newly wedded wife, Adaoma, to gunmen suspected to be kidnappers.

Adaoma and her husband were abducted on June 11, 2017 while on their way back to Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, from Ekpoma, Esan-West in Edo State.

The deceased and her husband wedded on April 29, 2017 in Port Harcourt. Narrating how they were accosted by heavily armed kidnappers around Rumuoji in Emohua LGA of Rivers State, husband to the deceased, who insisted that his name should not be mentioned, explained that he tried to escape
from the kidnappers with the reverse gear immediately they came out of the bush.

“When they saw that I was making an attempt to escape, they began to shoot at the bonnet sporadically and the engine of my car stopped immediately. They came and dragged us out of the car and moved us into the bush.

“The kidnappers were in two groups; one of the groups took my wife to one direction while the other took me to another direction. We were attacked and taken away at about 3.40pm. I was asking them (kidnappers) about my wife’s whereabouts and they assured me that she was with the other group.

“By the time I saw my wife, she had collapsed and her face was swollen. I became afraid and begged them that they should release us so that I could take her to the hospital. They gave me the beating of my life. That was about 8pm.

“When I continued to beg them, they allowed me to call a friend of mine (James) to drive down to the main road that night to pick my wife and rush her to the hospital. The kidnappers ordered me to carry her to the road while they followed me.

“The entire place was dark and I carried my wife and tried to wait and have a rest, the kidnappers would again begin to beat me. This continued until we got to the road. I was told to lay my unconscious wife by the side of the highway with some leaves used to surround her for easy identification.

“They immediately marched me back to the bush. My friend, who knew that we were kidnapped, travelled from Port Harcourt that night to the point where my unconscious wife was dropped. He eventually took her to the hospital, where she was con

firmed dead,” the devastated Kingsley added.

The husband, who was eventually released by the hoodlums around midnight, told Punch correspondent that he was still shocked that Adaoma, who he married five weeks earlier, was killed by kidnappers.

Describing her as an easy-going, God-fearing person and a devout Christian, the husband explained that he was beaten to a pulp after the kidnappers spoke with his pastor, adding that his pastor had cursed them for abducting me and my wife.

“They gave me another round of beating when my pastor spoke with them through my phone and cursed them. My wife must have been punched in the face or hit several times with the butt of a gun. They were dragging her along the bush. That might have caused her to collapse and died,” he said amid tears.

He explained that he had been traumatised by his experience in the bush and felt that the kidnappers could still waylay him again.

However, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Nnamdi Omoni, said he was not aware of the incident and promised to reach the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Emohua, where the incident happened.

Woman Fakes Own Kidnap To Force Husband To Relocate Her To US


37-year-old woman, Bukola Ogun, said she planned her own kidnap in order to scare her husband into relocating her and children to the United States.

The Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude, said while parading the suspect and others at the state police headquarters in Ibadan on Friday that Ogun conspired with three other persons, including her cousin, to arrange the crime.

He said, “The Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the command arrested a business woman who conspired with a three-man gang to orchestrate her own kidnap in order to fraudulently obtain money
from her husband, Kayode Ogun, who lives with her in Ibadan.

“The incident happened on July 4, 2017 at around 7.45pm when three armed hoodlums stormed the residence of the supposed victim and kidnapped her. Barely four hours later, the suspects contacted the husband and demanded a N10m for her release.

“The husband, who did not know that it was all arranged by his wife, contacted the police and a manhunt was launched for the hoodlums. Two male suspects were later arrested.”

The suspects arrested are Kayode Adepoju and Olalekan Anafi. Ogun said that her husband, who has dual citizenship of Nigeria and the US, worked for the stock exchange and that the whole thing started like a joke. She added that she lodged herself in a hotel at Imalefalafia area of Ibadan.

“I just woke up one day and thought of a way to make my husband see reason why he should use his American citizen status to take me out of the country. It all started like a child’s play. I told my supposed abductors to tell my husband that the ransom was N10m although I knew he would not be able to pay such money. He is just a salary earner. I lodged myself in a hotel and I was there for two days. I went back home on the third day and no ransom was paid.”

Punch correspondent gathered that the husband, who resided in the US for many years before returning home a few years ago, had already begun the process of relocating the family to the US but the wife thought the process was too slow. They have been married for six years and blessed with two children.

The cousin, Adepoju, said, “She called me and said she wanted to stage her kidnap. She said she wanted to scare her husband with it so that he would see reason why it was necessary for him to take her abroad. We did not collect any money from the husband and we did not use any weapon in the operation. I was arrested a day after we kidnapped her.”

I’d Have Burnt My PDP Card, Flag If Sheriff Had Won - Fayose


The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, said he would have burnt his Peoples Democratic Party’s membership card and the party’s flag if Senator Ali Modu Sheriff had won at the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

The Chairman, PDP Governors Forum said he went to court with a perfume with the intent to destroy the card and the party’s flag.

He said, “I never imagined myself being in the same party with impostors.” The Supreme Court in a unanimous judgement delivered on Wednesday declared Senator Ahmed Makarfi as the authentic
Chairman of the party.

Speaking in Ado Ekiti yesterday the governor, who pointed out that Sheriff and members of his faction had been forgiven, said they must show remorse for causing the party members so much pains.


“I went to court with a perfume which I wanted to use to spray my cards and party flags and set them ablaze even within the court premises if Sheriff had won, that was why I went to court.

“Though I believe that we remain the same PDP family but no one can cause our party such pains and embarrassment and expect that he would go without being asked to account for his actions.

“Even the reactions of Sheriff people shows that we remain together. But the no victor, no vanquished that we said was a mere political slogan. Whoever that participated in this charade must show some reasonable level of remorse for their actions,” he said.

With the Makarfi’s victory, the governor said the PDP would be revived and fortified to play its opposition roles so as to dislodge President Muhammadu Buhari and Acting President Yemi Osinbajo in the 2019 presidential poll.

“Our party had ever remained one indissoluble family. It was only these impostors that were causing troubles but such had been laid to rest. PDP is a formidable force and we shall work up to the grassroots level to convince our people that we are up to the task of rebuilding this nation and win election in 2019”.

Fayose said his presidential ambition was still much alive.

“I am an early starter and that has been my style of politics. In 2003, I started earlier and I defeated Otunba Niyi Adebayo and likewise Dr Kayode Fayemi in 2014.

“I want to tell you that the APC won’t return to the Villa. We shall defeat both Buhari and Osinbajo, we are removing the two together and I want you to believe this.

“When I talk, people would say I always pose like a Nostradamus – a man who can see tomorrow. Whether they like it or not, I shall be in the Villa in 2019, so my ambition is very much alive,” he added.

President Trump Sued For Blocking People On Twitter


President Donald Trump has been party to an eye-watering 4,000 lawsuits over the last 30 years, US media say. And now the mogul turned commander-in-chief has attracted one more, after seven people sued him for blocking them on Twitter.

Mr Trump is an avid user of the social media forum, which he deploys to praise allies and lambast critics. The lawsuit was filed by the Knight First Amendment Institute, a free speech group at Columbia University.

The seven Twitter users involved claim their accounts were blocked by the president, or his aides,
after they replied to his tweets with mocking or critical comments.

People on Twitter are unable to see or respond to tweets from accounts that block them. The legal complaint argues that by blocking these individuals, Mr Trump has barred them from joining the online conversation.

It calls the move an attempt to "suppress dissent" in a public forum - and a violation of their First Amendment right to free speech.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and the president's social media director Daniel Scavino are also named in the lawsuit.

Last month, Mr Spicer said Mr Trump's tweets were considered "official statements by the president of the United States".

The president's @realDonaldTrump Twitter account has 33.7m followers, while the official @POTUS account has 19.3m.

FIFA whistleblower Chuck Blazer Dies


Former FIFA executive committee member Chuck Blazer, who turned whistleblower and gave evidence to the FBI about football-related corruption, has died at the age of 72.

The American, who revealed in 2013 that he had been diagnosed with cancer and diabetes, was banned from football activity for life by world football's governing body in July 2015.

The ban was announced by FIFA's ethics committee for his "many acts of misconduct" at FIFA and as general secretary of the CONCACAF confederation after Blazer pleaded guilty in the US court to
charges of football-related corruption, including accepting bribes to vote for South Africa to host the 2010 World Cup.

Blazer's death was announced by his lawyers, Eric Corngold and Mary Mulligan, who said in a statement: "We are truly saddened by the passing of our client and friend, Chuck Blazer.

A New Book Says Spain's Juan Carlos Has Had 5,000 Lovers & And Even Tried His Luck With Diana


With a dashing stoop of his 6ft 5in frame, Spain’s King Felipe radiated old world charm as he greeted the Queen with a kiss to each cheek yesterday amid the pomp of a red-carpet welcome on Horse Guards Parade.

His impeccable manners and solicitous behaviour seemed a world away from grubby new claims that erupted just as the Spanish State Visit to Britain began, about the extraordinary sex life of his father, Juan Carlos, the ex-king whom the bearded Felipe replaced as monarch three years ago.

According to an explosive new book, Juan Carlos is a sex addict who had hundreds of relationships
even after marriage to Queen Sofia, Felipe’s mother. Princess Diana is rumoured to have been just one of the young ladies the ex-king, now 79, pursued in a romantic career in which  like his namesake, the seducer Don Juan  he is said to have bedded almost 5,000 women.

Claims about the libidinous former monarch are not new. Five years ago, a Spanish society writer claimed Juan Carlos had slept with 1,500 women.

But the new allegations, compiled by a retired high-ranking Spanish Army officer, are staggering for the sheer detail about the number of his conquests.

In one six-month period alone, the ex-king is said to have had 62 lovers, while, in what the book calls his ‘passionate period’ between 1976 and 1994, Juan Carlos apparently bedded 2,154 women.

Even in his so-called ‘winter period’ of 2005 to 2014, when he was aged between 67 and 76 and apparently slowing down, the book says he slept with 191 different lovers.

Etisalat Nigeria Gets New Name. Now "9Mobile"


Etisalat Nigeria has just greatly accelerated the pace of its effort to stabilize the troubled telecoms company by changing the name brand.

It was exclusively gathered that the new name is 9Mobile. At an executive meeting held in Lagos two hours ago, the name 9Mobile was adopted and all staff across the country are being notified of the change of name.

Emerging Markets Telecommunication Services Ltd. (EMTS) trading as Etisalat Nigeria on Tuesday informed its customers that a proposed change of brand name will not affect its operations.

The telecoms company is yet to unveil the new brand to the public.

Etisalat Nigeria has 20 million subscribers, making it the country’s number four mobile operator with a 14 percent market share. Our mandate is to make sure the business runs as profitably as it can. What is most important now is to … ensure that the business runs and meets its obligations,” the company’s new chief executive Boye Olusanya said on Tuesday.

He said the telecom company is focused on getting the group back on track.

Buhari Has Done Nothing At All To Grow The Economy & He Is A London Resident - Financial Times


The term “dead cat bounce” derives from the fact that even a dead cat will bounce if it falls from a great height. If you imagine a dead cat soaked in crude oil and dropped from a 50-storey building, you get a rough picture of how Nigeria’s economy is performing these days. Nigeria is expected to grow 2.5 per cent this year after contracting 1.6 per cent in 2016. But the population is also growing at 2.5 per cent. So in per capita terms, things are going nowhere. The reasons for the “recovery” are twofold. First, last year’s performance was so dismal it would have been difficult for the economy to fall further. Without doing anything at all — a reasonable description of policy under Muhammadu
Buhari, the country’s ailing leader and frequent London resident — the baseline effect has worked its magic. Second, the oil that makes up so much of government revenues is flowing faster. In June, production was 1.7m barrels a day, 10 per cent higher than a year ago.

One should, they say, never let a crisis go to waste. That advice has clearly not reached Abuja, where the economic collapse brought on by swooning oil prices was supposed to spur diversification. It has not happened. The danger now is that, having apparently come through the worst, Nigeria will simply go back to business as usual. If oil prices recover, so will headline growth. But the structure and basic dynamics of Africa’s largest economy will remain unchanged.

Nigeria frustrates because of its vast potential. It has 190m people, among the sharpest, most driven and entrepreneurial on the continent. But perverse incentives have diverted the energy of the best and the brightest to mostly unproductive activities: making money through political connections, speculation, round-tripping and arbitrage.

When President Buhari was elected three years ago, he promised to end all this. The economy would be transformed. Manufacturing would be re-energised. So would agriculture, which employs three-quarters of the population but contributes only a fifth of output. The government would wean itself off oil revenue. Mr Buhari — stern, principled, incorruptible — was said to be the man to see this through.

Little has come to pass. Mr Buhari took six months to name a cabinet and became embroiled in a necessary but distracting fight with Boko Haram. He has spent much of the past year convalescing from a mystery illness that has sapped his presidency of vigour and set off a merry-go-round of political jockeying to succeed him. There has been practically nothing in the way of coherent economic policy.

True, there have been attempts to punish individuals for corruption. Yet, like weeds shorn of their leaves, graft will doubtless spring back as lush as ever once the Buhari strimmer is back in its box. An example of failure to cut corruption at the roots is the foreign exchange policy. Mr Buhari was determined to defend the phoney official rate. But the only way to do so was to ration dollars. Given the yawning gap with the black market, this has delivered a delicious arbitrage opportunity to anyone lucky — or connected — enough to get their hands on precious foreign exchange at the official window.

Sadly for hopes of economic diversification, the lucky beneficiaries of dollars did not include manufacturers. Most were actually banned from receiving the foreign exchange they needed to buy inputs or capital equipment. Far from expanding, manufacturing actually shrank last year. The economy is back to square one, gasping for a recovery in oil prices to breathe life back into the system.

There are some promising signs. Agriculture is getting more attention, and there are tentative improvements in rice and other crops. If all goes to plan, by 2019, the country will have a $12bn oil refinery courtesy of Aliko Dangote, Nigeria’s richest man. This is an installation that could save billions in unnecessary imports of refined products.

Nigeria’s constitution is working. In Mr Buhari’s extended absence with illness, the competent and dynamic Yemi Osinbajo has been running the show. Foreign exchange policy has improved. In April, a “growth and recovery plan” was published, laying out plans to cut red tape, improve the tax take, reform state-owned enterprises and move towards a market-determined exchange rate. Such policy prescriptions have been discussed for 20 years. The danger is Nigeria will still be talking about them 20 years hence.

The immediate prospect is for a vicious and enervating power struggle to succeed Mr Buhari, whom few expect to contest the 2019 election. Whoever emerges victorious will doubtless promise to stamp out corruption, diversify the economy and rationalise the oil sector. Cats not only bounce. They also have nine lives.

Rob Kardashian Apologizes To His Family ‘You Were Right All Along’


Rob Kardashian is deeply remorseful for slut shaming Blac Chyna, at least that's what he told his family.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Rob's spoken with all of his sisters and his mom, telling them he has no excuse for posting nude pics of Chyna and her medical information on social media.

He said he regrets he didn't deal with the Chyna drama privately and said it wouldn't happen again.

One thing Rob did not apologize for, he flatly denied he ever physically abused Chyna.

Rob also acknowledged all of the Kardashian women warned him Chyna was "bad news" and he should stay away- advice he ignored. He told them they were right.

He also said he stayed with Chyna longer than he should have because he grew up in a 2-parent household and wanted the same for Dream.

TMZ is told Rob and family have stayed quiet through the ordeal in an effort to stop the back and forth in the best interest of his daughter.

The women accepted his apology and are hopeful he'll heed their advice.
