Featured Image

Moises is Oscar de la Renta’s only son whom he adopted after his late wife’s demise in the eighties.

Last year, the fashion wife suffered a blow it is yet to recover from, when the news of the demise of one of the world’s greatest designer, Oscar de la renta was announced.

And celebrities all over the world poured out condolences, reason was not farfetched, the man was a legend in the fashion world and he had dressed people like Jackie Kennedy and even Princess Diana was a huge fan of his.

However, months after he passed, it has been made known that the late great designer, left his son very little out of his million dollar fortune.

And guess what the reason was?

Moises, some ten years ago, tried to start his own line for women but clearly, Daddy was not excited about his little project.

And so, Oscar was angry and they had an issue about it.

And even though the line never really picked up and nobody knew much about it, it is allegedly the reason Oscar left his son almost nothing.

He willed majority of the wealth to his second wife and only left his son the remaining which Moises would have to share with his father’s step children (the kids his second wife had before marrying him)

According to the will, if Moises contests it, he would lose the little he was left.

RIP Oscar.

5 problems President Buhari vows to tackle

Featured Image

On Friday the 29th of May, General Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in as the fourth president of Nigeria’s fourth republic. Nigerians and the rest of the world watched as the man on who lays the burden of change pledged his absolute service to his country. In his inaugural speech, President Buhari vowed to address a number of issues, from insecurity, corruption and unemployment, “head on.”

Insecurity

Over the past decade, Nigeria has grown more insecure, largely due to, but not restricted to ethno-religious crisis and Boko Haram’s insurgency in the north. While the Islamic terrorist group has run rampage in the north, killing, kidnapping, maiming and displacing civilians, the south has also been plagued by constant kidnapping.

With daily reports of bomb blasts and kidnapping by the media, Nigerians now live in constant apprehension. The issue of insecurity is considered to be the biggest failure of the former administration.
In his inaugural speech, President Buhari described insecurity as the “the most immediate” issue to be dealt with. He reminded citizens of the recent progress made by the security forces of the country, and also emphasized that efforts will be intensified to see the rescue of the Chibok girls and every other person under the captivity of Boko Haram.

Corruption

Nigeria faces quite a number of challenges, and corruption maintains a top spot on the list. The 2014 Corruption Perception index of  Transparency International, revealed Nigeria as one of the countries mostly perceived as corrupt, and rightly so.

Poor education system, fake drugs, and rigged elections are just a few consequences of corruption in Nigeria, a pandemic that has remained unresolved for decades. From bribery in both the public and private sector, internet fraud among the youths (yahoo scams), to embezzlement by government officials, extortion by members of the armed forces, favouritism and nepotism; Nigeria serves a breeding ground for all forms of corruption.

During his campaign, tackling corruption was President Buhari’s focus, as he promised to rid the country of all corrupt practices. “My fear is that if we don’t kill corruption in Nigeria, corruption will kill us. So, the choice before us is to resolve to kill corruption and free our country from the firm grip of corrupt men and women,” he said at a presidential rally in Port-harcourt.

His administration has already started taking measures towards corruption eradication as Nigeria’s Anti-Corruption Agency recently arrested senior officials of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and over ten others from commercial banks across the country for currency fraud. Also, Nigerian citizens are told to report hiked fuel sales at neighbouring stations around them to the Department of Petroleum Resources. The country clearly has renewed hope in the president, a man who has a strong reputation for being incorruptible.

Fuel Scarcity and Power

Economic activities in Nigeria’s major cities recently came to a halt following a strike by oil marketers and transporters over disagreement on the removal of subsidy. Endless queues formed at filling stations, the price of transportation doubled, workers and students were forced to remain at home, and banks shut down. It was a major crisis.

Despite being blessed with the resource of oil, and the existence of five refineries in the country, Nigeria has continued to rely on imported petroleum products, causing its citizens to be at the mercy of oil marketers as petroleum products are subsidised. Trillions of naira that could have been diverted into other sectors of the economy has been wasted on subsidy.

As if by plan, while citizens decried the scarcity of fuel, there was no power in these cities as well, making living conditions almost unbearable. As the president rightly put it in his speech, “it is a national shame that an economy of 180 million generates only 4,000MW, and distributes even less. Continuous tinkering with the structures of power supply and distribution and close on $20b expanded since 1999 have only brought darkness, frustration, misery, and resignation among Nigerians.” While he stated this, the inauguration was being powered by generators.

Unemployment

Though a recent report by the National Bureau of Statistics says unemployment in Nigeria is down to 6.4 per cent from 28 per cent, it still remains one of the major challenges faced by the country. Years of corruption, mismanagement of finance and resources have hindered the country’s economic growth, which adversely results in unemployment.

Owing to the number of unemployed youths roaming the streets on a job hunt, Nigerians were outraged by the reports of the bureau, calling it delusionary, and fallacious. “Changing figures on paper does not reduce the number of the unemployed in the job market. This is a very unserious way to deal with a national problem,” said Mr. Husaini Abdu, Country Director, PLAN International.

The president on Friday vowed to attack the problem of unemployment “through the revival of agriculture, solid minerals mining as well as credits to small and medium size businesses to kick – start these enterprises.”

Economy

The present state of Nigeria’s economy is surprising given the country’s natural and human resources. With unpaid salaries, increase in the price of goods and services, and a consistent drop in oil price, Nigerians, no doubt, entered 2015 frightened.

Over the years, the economy has suffered a decline due to poor governance, political instability, and recently oil price drop. The latter has led the country to incur huge external and domestic debt, the depletion of its foreign reserves, and the fall of the currency.

During his campaign earlier in the year, the president had pledged to strengthen the country’s weak economy. In a meeting at the Lagos State Government House, tagged ‘GMB means business’, the president had promised to design practical economic policies suitable to promote Nigeria’s prosperity and the creation of jobs, giving a breakdown of his plans. “We shall quickly examine the best way to revive major industries and accelerate the revival and development of our railways, roads and general infrastructure,” he stated in his inaugural speech.

Falcao Would take Pay Cut To Play For Chelsea

Featured Image

Falcao was a disappointment in his first attempt at the premiership, scoring 5 goals in 28 appearances for Manchester United. The Colombian is however desperate for another chance to prove he is good enough for the league and would even take a pay cut to see it happen.

Falcao has been linked with a move to Chelsea as Monaco are unwilling to keep the player due to his wage bill. His wage bill is also the reason why Chelsea and other big clubs from making a move. Facao currently earns 265 thousand pounds a week and is willing to take a pay cut of up to 50 percent to push his move to Chelsea through.

Chelsea are yet to make a move, but speculations abound that they will. If Falcao wants to prove a point to Manchester United, Chelsea would provide the best platform for him to do so.
