Buhari Says Obasanjo Wasted $16b On Power Projects

 



President Muhammadu Buhari raised a poser yesterday for former President Olusegun Obasanjo: where is the fruit of your administration’s $16 billion expenditure on power?

The President spoke at the Presidential Villa in Abuja while receiving the Buhari Support Organisation (BSO), led by Comptroller-General of Nigerian Customs Service Col. Hameed Ali (retd.)

Although the President did not specifically mention Obasanjo’s name, what he said was a direct reference to Obasanjo’s tenure and the controversial expenditure.

Buhari said: “I have to repeat what I want the public to know here. Some of you may not have heard it. Either there is no power in your place or even on the television.

Rain Storm Damage UNILAG Hostels (Photos)

Residents of Moremi, Makama, and Fagunwa Halls, University of Lagos (UNILAG), were severely affected by the recent rainstorm that hit the school after roofs and walls of the hostel buildings came off.

The storm which began in the early hours of Tuesday morning had roofing sheets flying off after a deafening wind briefly swept through the school.

The wall that separates Fagunwa hall from the marshes outside it also collapsed.

Narrating her experience, a resident of Moremi, Aniebietabasi Ufia, said it was very scary.

“It was scary. Initially I didn’t think it was something serious until people in my hostel started screaming.

“I ran out and saw zinc sheets in the air like nylon bags, the wind carried fire about, basins and buckets were tossed about like feathers. It was a frightful experience”, she said.

MINISTRY OF HEALTH BANS IMPORTATION OF CODEINE

                            

The Federal Ministry of Health of Nigeria has banned the importation of codeine as an active pharmaceutical ingredient in Nigeria.
The Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, in a statement on Tuesday, directed NAFDAC to immediately stop further issuance of permits for the importation of codeine.

The directive became necessary due to the gross abuse of the drug in the country.
This implies that codeine related drugs will not be imported or produced in the country any longer even codeine containing cough syrups.

BBNaija: CeeC attacked at Lagos Airport?



Upon her arrival at the airport in Lagos earlier tonight, 1st runner up of the Big Brother Naija reality TV show, Cee-C may have been attacked by a rowdy mob.

Cee-C’s security could barely pull her away from the rowdy mob who were possibly assaulting her at the airport.

It’s no doubt that the former housemate who had a lot of controversy around her while she was still in the house, might have enraged a lot of people because of her actions but did that warrant her being assaulted?

As videos of her being assaulted begin making the rounds online, people are disgusted that these mobs would do such a thing all because of a game.

And at the same time, people are saying she wasn’t attacked but people were trying to take photos with her and were not orderly about it.


Fans of the reality show took to the social media to express disappointment on the incident. Some are of the opinion that no matter her actions, she did not deserve the assault.

KUNLE AFOLAYAN GOES AGAINST AREMU’S CLAIMS, SAYS THEIR FATHER WAS NEVER POOR


                                  

Popular late actor, Adeyemi Afolayan, popularly known as Ade Love, was a famous filmmaker in Nigeria. So, it came as a shock when one of his sons, Aremu Afolayan, stated that his father lived a very poor life despite his fame.
However, Ade Love’s most popular son, Kunle Afolayan, has rubbished Aremu’s claims, insisting that their father did not die a poor man.

In his words: “Do you know Ade Love? Was Ade Love a poor man? That is his (Aremu’s) own opinion as everyone has a mind of their own. I would not say things were rosy, but we were never poor. If your parents were able to give you quality education and you enjoyed some luxuries that a lot of people didn’t have access to, then you cannot openly say you come from a poor home.”

Keyamo was recently appointed the Director, Strategic Communications for President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2019 presidential campaigns.

Ladies Who Accused Nigerian Lecturer of S*x for Grade Jailed

 

                    

The prolonged s*x-for-grade scandal that rocked Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State, eight years ago, involving Engr. Peter Otubu, a lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronics of the institution and Miss Juliet Ivie Okosun has climaxed in the conviction of two siblings, Miss Judith Ivie Okosun and Juliet Obehi Okosun.

Chief Magistrate Martina Iluobe of Ekpoma Chief Magistrate Court, last weekend sentenced the sisters who had since graduated from the institution to two years imprisonment, for unlawful detention and indecent assault of Dr. Otubu.

Delivering judgement in the case marked MEK/18C/2012, Iluobe recalled that Juliet Obehi Okosun (second accused person) had admitted in her evidence before the court that she had the key to the apartment where the first accused person, Judith Ivie Okosun, unlawfully assaulted Dr. Otubu.

The lecturer was held hostage and stripped at their one-room apartment in a private female hostel near the university on 17 July 2010.

The accused persons were also said to have made Dr. Otubu to issue a cheque in the sum of N100,000 in favour of Judith Ivie Okosun.

The court specifically established that in the recorded video clips which was also posted on the internet by one Oziengbe, now at large, the second accused person had told the court that she was in possession of the key to the apartment where Engr. Otubu was held, making her liable for the unlawful detention of the lecturer.

21 AFRICAN COUNTRIES SHOWCASING AT AFRICA’S TOURISM INDABA – STILL TIME TO REGISTER





Tourism businesses from 21 African countries and 12 African tourism authorities have already confirmed their attendance at the largest global travel trade show for the continent, and there is still time to register.

“Tourism in Africa is growing – it’s a sunrise sector for many African countries, and this is reflected in the wider range of exhibitors we are seeing at the show each year, “says Sisa Ntshona the CEO of SA Tourism and organisers of Africa’s Travel Indaba.

African countries are taking tourism seriously based on 2017 figures which show that 8,1% of Africa’s total GDP was generated from the sector (USD 177 billion). Tourism is also driving job creation in Africa with an estimated 6,5% of all employment on the continent being in the sector. These figures are based on Africa currently attracting just 5% of global travellers.

Why There Is Insecurity In Nigeria – Wike

                         Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike



Rivers State Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike says the nation’s security degenerated dangerously because the Federal Government chose to play politics with the security challenge in Rivers State.

The governor said this at the Government House in Port Harcourt on Tuesday when the Governing Council of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) paid him a courtesy visit.

According to the governor, when the state was battling with issues such as kidnappings, the All Progressives Congress-controlled Federal Government plotted to declare a state of emergency in the state instead of addressing the security challenges.

“The Federal Government politicised the issue of security in Rivers State at a time when her intervention was required. That is why the whole country has been engulfed by insecurity,” he said.

“Every day you hear (about) people being killed like chickens. In Taraba, Plateau, Kogi, Benue, Zamfara, Kwara, Nasarawa, Kaduna, Yobe and Borno States.”

Governor Wike decried the deadly robbery in Offa, Kwara State were up to 30 persons were reported killed and accused security agencies of failing to stop the incident.

He said, “After 50 persons were murdered in cold blood, the very next day, the authorities claimed that 7 persons have been arrested. If the security agencies have the capacity to arrest almost immediately, why not stop the killings?”

Speaking with Vanguard, Mohammed said, “I believe nobody should be surprised about Buhari’s declaration.

“Why? Because Buhari is a kind of man that cares less about Nigerians and wants to hold on to power as long as he can.

“It is now left for Nigerians to decide whether he stays on or not.

“What I can boldly say is that if Buhari wins another term in office, there will not be end to corruption, insurgency, and insecurity.

“His loyalists and cronies will continue to milk the country.

PART 2: HELL IN PARADISE- A case of Globacom Nigeria Staff----- Married Women

   
                
Yes, we are back with the PART 2 of Hell in paradise- A case of Globacom Nigeria Married women.  

If you recall we promised to bring to our SG readers another version of this horrendous story. Now, read another version from one of the victims and let us know your thoughts. 


Globacom is a telecommunications brand that has build a name for itself over the past years. 
Unfortunately, it's activities are shrouded in lies, deceit, oppression and treachery. It is an organisation where you work like a slave and never get commended or rewarded. It is a place where the only reward for handwork is more work and you never get promoted.

Rather, foreigners (mostly Indians) are employed with little or no knowledge and experience on the job, they get placed at the helm of affairs, get trained by you the underdog and take all the credit for the work you put in whilst more official responsibilities are allotted to you without so much as the benefit of an increment in salary no matter how small.

Glo is a company that specializes in spending billions on advertisements with the aim of increasing subscriber base so that subscribers can be scammed via hidden charges and fraudulent data charges. Glo is an organisation that doesn't care about the physical  and mental health of its staff as it does not have a health management scheme for staff and cares even less about staff welfare. 

There's no leave allowance, travel allowance and end of year bonus. As a staff , you have no choice but to factor these necessities into your meagre salaries that never experiences an increment. Experience in GLO was, simply put, one of "suffering and smiling." with no light at the end of the tunnel till date.

Don’t Get Married Yet If Your Partner exhibits these things.



                                       
Experts say it’s worth pumping the brakes if one of these things occurs before the wedding.

For engaged couples with a wedding on the horizon, it’s important to take stock of your relationship before, not after, you walk down the aisle.
Instead of spending all of your time and energy planning the wedding, think about investing some of those precious resources in your relationship ― particularly if you have doubts about whether you want to get into a lifelong partnership with the person you’re engaged to.
Below, marriage therapists reveal the behaviors that are serious enough to warrant postponing the wedding until you and your partner work things out. And if things still don’t improve, perhaps it’s worth reevaluating the relationship as a whole.

1. They frequently put other people and plans before you.

Does your partner cancel plans with you when something better comes up with his buddies? Or maybe she picks up a non-urgent work call while you two are out to dinner celebrating your birthday. If so, it might be a sign that your partner isn’t prioritizing you and your relationship.


“People get married for lots of reasons,” marriage and family therapist Aaron Anderson told HuffPost. “It’s not always for love. Make sure you’re not marrying someone who’s marrying you out of convenience. Make sure they’re putting you first. You don’t want to be the understanding spouse for the rest of your life, or soon you’ll start feeling like a doormat.”

2. They don’t communicate well.


Instead of having a productive conversation about a tricky topic ― like sex, family issues or money ― your partner either argues with you about it or just avoids the discussion altogether. It’s been said time and time again, but communication really is the cornerstone of a strong marriage. If you can’t talk candidly about the tough stuff, you might not be ready for marriage quite yet.


“The problems that develop when long-standing problems remain unsolved can ruin your relationship,” Tina Tessina, psychotherapist and co-author of How to Be a Couple and Still Be Free, told HuffPost. “Make it a point to talk about whatever seems difficult: You need to know how well you two can discuss the difficult things that will arise during a lifetime together.”

And if you can’t find a way to discuss these things without it turning into a blowout fight, it may be wise to see a couples therapist who can help you sharpen your communication skills.

“If that doesn’t work, the relationship probably won’t work either,” Tessina said.

3. They’ve cheated on you.
Infidelity doesn’t necessarily have to be a dealbreaker, but it’s certainly something that might give you pause leading up to the wedding. If your partner is genuinely remorseful and willing to do the work to uncover what drove them to be unfaithful in the first place, that’s a good sign. Before tying the knot, it’s also worth taking a closer look at any underlying issues in the relationship that could have contributed to the infidelity.

“While I disagree with the saying, ‘Once a cheater, always a cheater,’ there are always some significant mindset and behavior changes necessary to prevent this behavior from repeating,“ Kurt Smith, a therapist who specializes in counseling men, told HuffPost. “These new changes should be proven before getting married.”

4. They’ve stopped having ― or talking about ― sex with you.


Over the course of a relationship, it’s normal for both partners’ levels of sexual desire to fluctuate. What matters is whether you and your partner are able to have a healthy discussion about these inevitable ups and downs and can express what you do (and do not) like in bed. If your partner stonewalls you or refuses to take your concerns seriously now, it’s unlikely these issues will magically resolve themselves after you say “I do.”
“If you’re feeling strain in your sexual relationship now, then imagine what several more years is going to feel like,” Anderson told HuffPost. “A lifetime is a long time to be having bad sex. People think sexual difficulties are a pretty shallow reason to call off the engagement, but they’re even less understanding when it’s the cause of an affair or a divorce. Make the decision now or get the problem fixed before tying the knot.”

5. They’re dealing with addiction issues: drugs, alcohol or gambling.
Again, this one doesn’t have to be a dealbreaker if your partner is truly committed to their recovery. But untreated addictions can put a significant strain on the relationship, so you should not just turn the other cheek ― no matter how much you may love this person. If they are ready and willing to get help, that’s one thing. But if they’re still in denial, that’s another.


“Addictions aren’t easily or quickly resolved,” Smith told HuffPost. “It would be a big mistake for a partner to think they’ll be able to change this problem behavior about their future spouse. I can’t tell you how many spouses I’ve counseled who overlooked this in the beginning because they thought it wouldn’t be that bad.”

6. They’ve recently gone through a major life event like a career change, big move, or the illness or death of a parent.

These are not reasons to call off the wedding altogether, but they may be enough for you to at least consider the timing of your nuptials. It might be worth postponing the wedding until things settle and some level of normalcy returns to your partner’s life.


“Trying to build a foundation on shaky ground is never a good idea,” Susan Pease Gadoua, marriage therapist and the co-author of The New I Do: Reshaping Marriage for Skeptics, Realists and Rebels, told HuffPost. ”One couple I worked with was struggling from the fallout of the husband’s father’s illness, which took the newly married husband away from his wife. Although she understood on the one hand, on the other, she was resentful of how much he had to take care of his father. From her perspective, this should have been their newlywed time together.”
“In turn, he became resentful toward his new bride because she didn’t understand his relationship with his dad,” Gadoua continued. “Looking back, the wife could see that her husband was not fully present on their wedding day and those months prior. Intuitively, she knew he was not in a position to get married, but she thought they could ride the storm together.”

7. They’re controlling and emotionally volatile.
We all have good days and bad days. On bad days, we may not be the best versions of ourselves ― perhaps we’re cranky or short-tempered. But is bad behavior the exception or the rule with your partner? If, more often than not, your partner is having emotional outbursts, trying to control you (which could be a sign of emotional abuse) or exhibiting narcissistic behaviors, these are major warning signs that shouldn’t be ignored, Smith told
“Any behavior of this kind should be discussed with a mental health professional to determine the significance,” Smith said. “If characteristics such as these or others make you question if they might be a problem, they must not be ignored. These are some of the big causes for partners seeking marriage counseling later on.”

8. They’re dealing with significant mental health issues.


In a given year, nearly 1 in 5 American adults will experience a mental health condition. It’s that common. But if your partner is dealing with a severe, debilitating issue, the stress of an upcoming wedding may only add to their already very heavy mental and emotional load.
“I had clients who came in for premarital therapy a month before the wedding date and with each session, the male client slipped deeper and deeper into a dark hole of depression,” Laura Heck, couples therapist and creator of the online couples therapy series “ForBetter,” told HuffPost. “He hired an individual therapist who specializes in depression, who recommended he check himself into the hospital for a few days to keep him safe from self-harm. This was a major red flag and the point where it should have been clear that the wedding date was no longer the top priority.”
Against Heck’s advice to postpone the wedding, the couple married days after the groom was released from the hospital.
“Weddings can be stressful events; in fact a wedding scores a 50 out of 100 on the life change unit scale,” she said. “Anyone can experience an increase in anxiety or any preexisting conditions; however, suicidal thoughts and self-harm behaviors should take precedence and give pause to the decision to move forward with a looming wedding date. My recommendation is to postpone it and get to the bottom of where these symptoms are coming from.”

9. They keep secrets from you.
Say your partner went over budget one month or had dinner with an ex: Do they tell you, or say nothing and hope you don’t find out? Admitting our wrongdoings isn’t easy; it requires honesty and vulnerability. But ultimately, being upfront about these mistakes can help build a strong foundation for your future together.
“Lying to your partner about whether you have broken an agreement does more damage than breaking the agreement,” Tessina told HuffPost. “If you slip up, tell the truth. If it’s your partner who has slipped, be open to listening to him or her without blaming or getting upset, so the two of you can negotiate a solution to the problem.”
