Kylie may have moved out of the family house but she is still keeping up with the Kardashians.

The 17-year-old reality star looked glamorous as she joined her half-sisters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe for the filming of their reality show in Los Angeles.

Kylie was clad in her signature look of ripped jeans teamed with an off-the-shoulder T-shirt and a pair of polished heels. She finished off the look with a pair of oversize sunglasses.

The rest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan (with Kendall missing) also looked lovely in front of the cameras as they filmed the 11th season of their reality TV programme.

What Gbajabiamila Actually Presented To Pres. Buhari On July 1

Featured Image

President of Nigeria, Mohammadu Buhari’s meeting with members of the House of Representatives led by Femi Gbajabiamila started at about 9.45 pm lasted till about 11.00pm on July 1, 2015.

Here, according to PUNCH is an excerpt of the Point of discussion with President Buhari by the house of Reps below:

  1. On the 9th of June, 2015, 174 APC members in the House faithfully and loyally followed the directives of the party to vote for Hon Femi Gbajabiamila and Hon Mongunu as Speaker and Deputy Speaker while 39 other APC members colluded with the opposition party, the PDP, to elect the current Speaker and Deputy Speaker with only eight votes superiority. The party directive was based on the mock primaries conducted for all aspirants to the two positions.

  2. Whereas the candidates of the majority (Gbajabiamila and Mongunu) openly congratulated the winners and continued to cooperate with them in the House, the opposition and the 39 APC members continued to hold the APC leadership in contempt.

  3. Whereas we the 174 Party faithfuls and loyalists had been obedient to the Party, what shall be the reward of our loyalty to the Party?

  4. The Party has chosen not to punish the 39 APC members including the elected Speaker and Deputy Speaker, but chose to direct, as it is customary and conventional, on how the other four (4) Principal Officers should be distributed. Alas! The opposition and the 39 members continue to hold the ruling Party in contempt by disobeying the party.

  5. Whereas, the beneficiaries of the disobedience are citing Federal Character Principle as the main reason for their disobedience, His Excellency should note that:
    (a) During the 6th Assembly (2007-2011), the following officers were elected from the NORTH-WEST
    (I) The President and Commander in Chief
    (ii) Ismaila Kawu
    (III)Hon Mutawalle. The two occupied 2 out of the 4 principal officers positions of the Minority Party
    (iv) Hon Aminu Tambuwal was elected Deputy Chief Whip.
    (B) Also during the 7th Assembly, the following officers in Government were elected from the NORTH-WEST
    (I) The Vice President
    (II) The Speaker, Rt. Hon Aminu Tambuwal
    (III) Hon. Ismaila Kawu, Deputy Minority Leader
    (IV) Hon. Garba Datti, Deputy Minority Whip

There was never an issue of Federal Character in these instances.

  1. It should be noted that the Federal Character principle as embedded in chapter of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) IS NOT JUSTICIABLE AND OF NO LEGAL CONSEQUENCE. Its provision in S.14 of the Constitution is only applicable to appointments in Federal Ministries and Agencies. The House of Representatives is not an agency of the Federal Government and the principal officers positions are elective and not by appointment. If the Federal Character is applicable to the National Assembly, then both the Senate President and the Speaker cannot come from the North, one of them should be advised to step down.

  2. It is noteworthy that Mr. President and the Governors had strongly put their weight behind the party and had severally admonished the House to abide by the party’s position. The 39 APC members in the House continue to collude with the PDP to flagrantly disobey Mr. President, the governors and the party with a view to bringing the Party and Government to ridicule before Nigerians.

  3. The conduct of the 39 APC members colluding with the PDP is tantamount to affront, ultimately targeted at polarising our Party so as to give room for many of them to decamp to the PDP.

  4. It is therefore imperative for Mr. President to take a stand and save the integrity of the Party, by cautioning, the 39 members, which include the Speaker and the Deputy Speaker, to respect, honour and obey our Party Leaders and their directives.

  5. In conclusion, Mr. President, we as loyal Party members shall continue to abide by the Party constitution, respect and honour our party leaders and their directives. We strongly appeal to you to direct the Speaker to return to our fold and be truly elected Speaker on APC platform. He should be directed to announce the other four Party Principal officers positions as directed by the party as it has always been the convention.

11. We sincerely appreciate Mr. President for the audience trusting in his ability to successfully mediate so as to save our great party, the APC, from further embarrassment.

First it was the First Lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama, then Solange Knowles and now it’s the super star Lupita!

Leading fashion label, Maki Oh continues to prove a hit amongst Hollywood’s fashion elite as Lupita Nyong’o has joined the league of stars spotted in the brand’s design.

The Kenyan beauty was spotted wearing two classic hand-painted and hand-dyed pieces by the designer and champion of Adire.

The Oscar-award winning actress is currently on a ‘Homecoming Tour’ in Kenya, her first visit since winning the movie industry’s top award for her  breakout role in 12 Years A Slave.

And at two of her public outings, the actress made fashion forward choices including a silk scarf blouse and silk cotton skirt ensemble to a mentor-ship talk. Later at a press conference, she wore a silk satin and velvet vest teamed with silk cotton wide leg pants.

Who’s who in the corporate zoo

Featured Image

The ‘corporate jungle’ is hardly a flattering term for the management suite, but some similarities have to be acknowledged. Survival is a vital issue in both scenarios. Predatory instincts can be an asset along with the ability to mark and defend territory when necessary.

It’s not surprising, then, that leadership consultants sometimes see parallels between the animal kingdom and successful executives.

After years of approaching (some might say ‘ensnaring’) senior managers, I confess that some prime specimens do possess certain beastly characteristics.

When hunting game like this at least seven targets stand out …

Lion: some bosses may enjoy the association with ‘the king of beasts’, but probably for the wrong reasons. The lion has great presence and the roar can be intimidating, but a lion does little real work. His ‘mates’ generally do that. The power is there all right, but it stems from the lion’s ability to delegate, only moving in to claim his due when the leg-work is over.

Hyena: this sounds insulting, but results can be spectacular. The hyena is nature’s great opportunist. The corporate variety shows patience and lets others claim the kill, but then moves in to grab a big share of whatever’s going. Being first to market costs time and money. You cut risks and costs by coming second, but following up effectively.

Zebra: apparently the perfect team player. He or she seems to blend in with the herd. This is an illusion. Zebras, organisational and otherwise, constantly seek to improve their position and corner the best grazing. When teamwork is prized and aggressive leadership can prove destructive, you bring in a zebra. The team stays intact and the organisation moves in the right direction.

Cheetah: the best leadership choice when speed is crucial. When running down a target is the prime requirement and you need to outpace competitors, this speedster is ideal. Decision-making is instant. But single-minded pursuit at breakneck pace may mean other opportunities are missed. A cheetah’s acquisitions may impress, but slowing down and consolidating requires other skills.

Tortoise: a born survivor. Evolution seems to pass them by, but that solid shell keeps them from harm. They are slow, but get there. Sometimes the prime organisational requirement is a safe pair of hands. The organisational tortoise is safety personified, but may need to team up with other players if additional objectives are; set.

Eagle: the ability to see the big picture is highly prized. The eagle soars high and spots opportunity and danger from afar. But a far-sighted visionary may seem aloof. Coming down to earth and getting the job done requires great versatility – or complementary skills from a senior colleague.

Dolphin: this gifted communicator exchanges information constantly and uses feedback to coordinate appropriate responses. But perpetual chatter may lead nowhere fast. You might optimise short-term opportunities and remain safe from immediate danger, but if more aggressive goals are set, the great communicator may need help from a great executor.

It’s ironic, but in all cases these executive specimens usually improve their leadership performance by applying the human touch.
