Port Harcourt Refinery Resumes With Daily Production Of 5M Litres – NNPC

Featured Image

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) officially announced on Wednesday that it has restarted the Port Harcourt refinery, even as the refinery now produces up to five million litres of petrol daily since it came back on stream last week.

In a bid to put a final end to fuel shortages in the country, the Port Harcourt Refinery, which was shut down some months back, was re-opened, a spokesman for state oil firm NNPC said.

“It is not in full capacity. Production is between three and five million litres daily,” the Group General Manager, Public Affairs of the NNPC, Garuba Deen Muhammad said.

The announcement was made during a monitoring exercise of petrol distribution and sales at filling stations within Abuja and its environs.

The spokesperson said: “Port Harcourt has been refining for quite a while now, from last week, between three and five million litres. We expect Kaduna refinery to begin any time soon and we also have vessels discharging fuel and so, all these combined measures will bring down the situation.”

“When you have this kind of situation, people will naturally get agitated but people are getting calm now because they know the supply gap has now been bridged, and it is a question of distribution now. They are all patient and that was what happened in Lagos. The situation has virtually normalised in Lagos because the motorists cooperated.

“Still, there are some hitches here and there but improvement is what we are counting on and it is what we should be expecting.

“People always take advantage of situations and now we hear taxi drivers now take advantage of the situation and find it more profitable to join queues and round trip to sell to black market operators than doing their business. We will need to devise means of stopping people from diverting and round tripping.”

The corporation also added that it expects its other refinery located in Kaduna to come back on stream next week.

Le Graet Bemoans Tough Decision To Drop Benzema

Featured Image

FFF president Noel Le Graet has stated it was a difficult decision to drop Benzema from the squad, but integrity must be preserved.

The Real Madrid forward was suspended in December, in relation to a blackmail incident involving him and teammate Valbuena’s sextape.

The 28-year-old has been charged with complicity in an attempt to blackmail and participating in a criminal conspiracy, though he denies any wrongdoing.

Le Graet has revealed that he and Didier Deschamps took several days to come to a final decision before the head coach informed the attacker, who was left “very, very sad”.

“It was a difficult decision to make, as you can well imagine,” Le Graet told L’Equipe .

“I repeat that I have affection for the boy, but we had to preserve the France team, the collective. During the Euros, we would have been in the following situation: ‘Benzema succeeds or Benzema fails.’

“Now this is a group that will succeed or fail. It was the right time to focus our attention, that of the coach and the media, on the other players. They are the ones that will play, and they deserve it.”

Le Graet went on to say that he hopes to see Benzema acquitted, and dismissed the notion that France will have to lower their ambitions for Euro 2016 without their star forward thanks to the likes of Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann.

“You saw the game against Barcelona that Griezmann had yesterday?” Le Graet continued, referring to the Atletico man’s double in his side’s 2-0 Champions League victory over Barca on Wednesday.

“You have seen the youngsters we have? Rarely has there been so much talent in attack for France.

“Frankly, I’m not worried. The objective remains the same. We are targeting the semis or better if possible.”

Ranieri To Snub Italy Post For Retirement At Leicester

Featured Image

Claudio Ranieri is looking to get a seven year contract at Leicester City and not the Italy job.

The Italy post is soon to be vacant, with Conte set to take over at Chelsea after the Euro 2016.

And Ranieri is keen on staying with Leicester, who are seven points clear at the top, with five games to go.

When asked by Kicker about the rumours surrounding the Italy post, Ranieri replied: “I’m very happy here and don’t think about a change. I think Leicester will be my last destination as a manager.

“I hope they will give me a long-term contract – six or seven years. And then I will finish my career here.”

Ranieri was also quizzed on the key to Leicester’s success, given this time last year the Midlands club were involved in a relegation dogfight.

“We don’t have secrets,” he said. “We only act as no-one would have expected.”

Fayose Writes Chinese Government To Withdraw $6bn Loan To Nigeria

Featured Image

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has written a strong worded letter to the government of the Republic of China, seeking the withdrawal of over $2 billion loan it is preparing to offer the federal government of Nigeria.

READ ALSO: Buhari To Sign $2bn Loan Deal With China

“The government of China should be mindful of the fact that Nigerians, irrespective of their political and religious affiliations are totally opposed to increment of the country’s debt burden, which is already being serviced with 25 per cent of the Federal Government annual budget,” Fayose said.

In the letter dated April 12, 2016, with reference number EK/GOV/28/10, addressed to President Xi Jinping of China and delivered by Chief of Staff to the governor, Barrister Dipo Anisulowo in Abuja on Thursday, through the Chinese Ambassador to Nigeria, Gu Xiaojie, Fayose said some of the projects for which the loan was being sought were not captured in the controversial 2016 budget, which has been sent to the President by the National Assembly for his assent, Daily Trust reports.

The letter read, “I write as one of the major stakeholders in the project Nigeria, and a governor of one of the federating units making up Nigeria, to draw your attention to report that the Federal Government of Nigeria is on the verge of obtaining a $2 billion loan from the Export-Import Bank of China.

“This $2 billion loan is part of the N1.84 trillion the Federal Government of Nigeria has proposed to borrow to finance the 2016 budget, which is yet to be signed by the President, Mohammadu Buhari owing to unending controversies between the Executive and Legislative arms of government.

“According to reports, Nigeria desires to raise about $5 billion abroad to cover part of its 2016 budget deficit. This is projected to hit N3 trillion ($15 billion) due to heavy infrastructure spending at a time when the slump in global oil prices has slashed the country’s export revenues.

“While conceding that all nations, especially developing ones need support to be able to grow because no nation is an island, I am constrained to inform you that if the future of Nigeria must be protected, the country does not need any loan at this time.

“The government of China should be mindful of the fact that Nigerians, irrespective of their political and religious affiliations are totally opposed to increment of the country’s debt burden, which is already being serviced with 25 per cent of the Federal Government annual budget.

“It will interest the government of China to know that some of the projects for which the loan is being sought are not captured in the controversial 2016 budget, which has been sent to the President by the National Assembly for his assent. For instance, the Lagos – Calabar Rail project was not included in the budget proposal the President presented to the National Assembly and it was not included in the Appropriation Bill passed by the National Assembly.

“Most importantly, Nigeria is presently servicing debt with about 25 per cent of its annual budget and what will happen to the economy in 2017, when the country will begin to service the additional debt to be incurred this year is better imagined than experienced.

“The Chinese government must also be aware that some western nations approached by the Federal Government for loan diplomatically and cleverly declined.

“This must have been informed by the suspicion in the present government’s capacity to salvage the nation’s economy as well as the sincerity in the fight against corruption. More so that Nigeria’s Foreign Reserve, which is the only guarantee for foreign loan has declined to a very uncomfortable level.”

Icardi Not Keen On EPL Move, Amid Inter Exit Talk

Featured Image

Mauro Icardi has once again stated he has no intention of leaving Inter Milan.

The Argentine striker has been ruled with a move away from the Serie A, with Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United all believed to be keeping tabs on the 23-year-old, who has netted 14 league goals this season.

However, Icardi is determined to stay put and challenge for silverware with Inter.

“It’s the same story every year. Every year I read that I am leaving Inter,” Icardi told Corriere della Sera. “But I am happy here. I enjoy being Inter captain, being the club’s striker and to score goals here.

“Of course, I want to win trophies, but I want to do it here at Inter, like so many did before me. Next year we will be gunning for the Serie A title and to qualify for the Champions League.”

Icardi then went on to reveal two of his former idols, while also voicing his admiration for two compatriots.

“When I was little, [Gabriel] Batistuta was my idol,” he added.

“Then I joined Barcelona and I really liked [Samuel] Eto’o. He always popped up in the right positions in the area.

“I also enjoy watching [Paulo] Dybala. The way he moves in between the lines and is moving behind the striker.

“I envy [Gonzalo] Higuain for his fine form this season, scoring a goal a game. But we are quite similar types of players.”

NASS Fear Gender Equality Bill May Promote Prostitution And Lesbianism – Senator Abaribe

Featured Image

The senator representing Abia South Senatorial District, Eyinnaya Abaribe has stated that the Senate of Nigeria’s National Assembly rejected the Gender Equal Opportunities Bill because some senators feared the legislation could make women engage in immoral activities.

READ ALSO: Senate Leader, Ndume‘s Statement On ‘Bill On Gender Equality In Marriage’

Speaking during a forum on the political rights of women in Nigeria organised by the Civil Resource Development and Documentation Centre (CIRDDOC) in Abuja on Wednesday, senator Abaribe said many legislators were worried about “too much freedom” it would give to women to engage in “social vices” including “lesbianism” and “prostitution”.

READ ALSO: #MysognisticSenate: House Refuses To Pass Bill On Gender Equality

He also said that although the bill had suffered setback, it could still be amended and re-introduced to give every Nigerian the rights they deserve.

He said: “The bill was defeated at the second reading when its details were highlighted to the senators.”

“Some lawmakers started expressing deep worries about some parts of the bill that they think could give women too much freedom and lead them to prostitution, lesbianism and other social vices.”

Abaribe called on all those championing the bill to make efforts at modifying some aspects of it in order to make it acceptable to all lawmakers for passage.

“The reason why we’re here is that we think that we should be able to restrategise, we should be able to look at the bill again and see those contentious areas we may need to modify. We should be able to find those critical constituencies within the senate that we must have to address.

“We should be able to look at the narrative of the bill and how it is being presented to the public and change that narrative and make it a positive narrative.

“For example, the bill is not a north versus south bill. The bill is not a Christian versus Muslim bill. The bill is not a male versus female bill. The bill simply seeks to extend to every Nigerian all the rights that are they should enjoy. And if women by virtue of our culture, by virtue of our historic antecedents are being behind, then we need to also drag them into the economy by giving them every right that they can use to be productive members of the society and that is all that we’re trying to do.

“It has been rejected but we’re talking to the senators who are supporting the bill to know how we could move forward. It’s not easy to say the bill can pass tomorrow, but we will continue to plead with other members for their support on this bill.

“Since we’re doing constitutional review, I will advise that we find a way of putting this bill directly into the Constitution because if we just make it as part of electoral law, it could be challenged at the courts and get struck down.”

Pardew Confident In Palace Safety

Featured Image

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew is confident they can remain in the EPL, following their goalless draw against Everton.

The eagles created a string of chances, but found a stumbling block in Everton goalie Joel Robles.

Pardew saw plenty of reasons for optimism, though, as Palace moved 11 points clear of the relegation zone despite failing to fully capitalise on the sending off of Everton’s James McCarthy early in the second half.

“That point might be crucial. I’d be very surprised if anyone in the bottom three can catch us,” Pardew told BBC Sport.

“We’d have liked to have won the game. We had some great chances. It’s frustrating. But although I’m frustrated, I’m pleased with another good performance. Given before the Norwich game the pressure we were under, I would’ve taken four points.

“The next two games are important. We’ve got two draws and a win, that’s not bad after the run we were on.”

After a frustrating evening in front of goal, Pardew demanded more from his attackers.

“I want my offensive players to be a bit hotter,” Pardew added.

“[Yannick] Bolasie and [Wilfried] Zaha were okay in parts today, less so in others. They are so important to us. The key to this team since I’ve been here has been Zaha and Bolasie. They need to give a bit more than they did tonight.

“Connor [Wickham] looked like a player who has been injured. He needed that game. Connor got half a game, [Emmanuel] Adebayor looked good when he came on.”

Pique: Barcelona Is In A Slump

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique has conceded to the fact that his side are in a slump, after they crashed out of the UCL.

Griezmann netted a brace that secured a 2-0 win and 3-2 on aggregate for Atletico.

And Pique conceded after the match that his side are encountering some difficulties with their form after winning just one of their past five matches.

“We are in a little slump. You’re not always at your best. Things go better or are worse,” he told AS.

“The team was hungry to score but the ball would not go in. This is football. We believe that we are very good, but not always at our best.”

Pique hopes his team can respond by winning La Liga – which they current lead by three points – and the Copa del Rey, but admits that the European exit represents a huge blow.

“I will not deny that it has been a very hard blow that we did not expect,” Pique said.

“We have to get up. We play the league and cup and they are two very nice competitions we expect to win.”

Gov’t Should Use ‘Proof Of Life’ Video To Negotiate Chibok Girls’ Release –Senator Sani

Featured Image

Shehu Sani, a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, has on Wednesday, averred that the schoolgirls abducted on April 14, 2014, from Government Secondary School in Chibok, Borno State by Boko Haram insurgents are still alive.

READ ALSO: 2 Years After Chibok: “We Must Ensure They Are Not Forgotten” – Oby Ezekwesili

Sani, who was a former government negotiator with Boko Haram, affirmed with CNN that the recent video of the girls released by a source of the ferocious Islamic death cult showed the veracity of their parents’ claims.

The United States network news, CNN had recently said it obtained a video of some of the Chibok girls which had been sent to negotiators by their captors as a “proof of life”.

READ ALSO: 2 Years After! We Are Still Waiting For The Chibok Girls – Dele Agekameh

Speaking exclusively with CNN, Sani said negotiations with Boko Haram for the release of the girls remained frozen, given the military campaign against the insurgents.

He also urged the government to do the needful in terms of the negotiation to avoid equaling the failure of the previous administration in securing the release of the girls.

Sani said: “Negotiation at this stage has been frozen, because of the military campaign emphasised by the government. And I believe there is a need to explore the option of negotiation to ensure that the girls are brought back home alive.”

“In the last three to four credible negotiations with the group (Boko Haram) on the issue of the girls, they were emphasising on the need to release their members that have been in detention for years. The issue of ransom came very late. What is important is to get these girls out.

“There are three ways to which we can get them out. One is to negotiate. And secondly is to use force, but the use of force comes with implication and consequences. Thirdly, it is to use force and continue to open the door of negotiation. I believe the third option is very much needed. We need to continue to use force to show it clearly to the insurgents that they can’t win militarily and also to open the door for negotiation, which will make it possible for the girls to be brought back home alive.”

“We should be very careful at this time. But, the fact that we can get such a very credible video from some sources; it shows that those sources are elements that need to be used to achieve the goal of getting these girls out…

“I believe Nigeria should take this opportunity. The last government fell into the hands of many scammers, but I believe with such a very credible video, there is hope that these girls are alive. And the sources that provided the video should be used to get the girls out.”

The senator lauded President Muhammadu Buhari led government for its decisive action in the war against the insurgents but advised that at this stage, negotiations should not be shelved.

DStv Premium Open Week; It’s For Real

Featured Image

Due to unfounded rumors spreading that the DStv Premium Open Week is a scam, we bring to you an exclusive interview with Martin Mabutho; GM Marketing and Sales, MultiChoice Nigeria. He confirms that the open weak is real.

  1. I picked up some DStv Open Week information online. Some people think it’s a scam. Is it for real?

Yes it’s very real. From today, 14 April to 21 April, select Premium channels will be available to active customers across all DStv bouquets; Compact Plus, Compact, Family and Access.

 

  1. I don’t understand. What do you mean by select Premium channels?

What this means is that those channels which are normally only available to Premium customers will be open to customers on the lower bouquets for one week at no extra cost.

 

  1. Will all the Premium channels be open?

All but the M-Net channels on the Premium bouquet will window down to the lower priced bouquets during the open week.

 

  1. Why not the M-Net channels?

We were not able to conclude agreements with various M-Net content providers before we launched this offer.

 

  1. Altogether how many Premium channels will be open to the lower bouquets?

Over 40 Premium channels will be available to the lower bouquets (with Access customers enjoying the widest access to Premium content), including all the SuperSport channels and the AfricaMagic channels.

 

  1. Will customers on the lower bouquets be able to watch any new series premiere during the open week?

They most certainly will. It means that sensational new telenovela Hush, and The Voice Nigeria, will now be available to customers across all our bouquets, all the way to the Access bouquet, which is our entry level bouquet. Soccer fans on the lower bouquets will also be able to catch the Chelsea vs. Manchester City match on SuperSport 3 (DStv channel 223) on Saturday, 16 April, as well as highlights of UEFA and FA Cup.

 

  1. I like the sound of all these, how come MultiChoice hasn’t done this before?

As a matter of fact, we have open weekends from time to time, just that this time it’s an entire week. It’s an opportunity for subscribers on lower priced bouquets, to experience content on the Premium bouquet. Our Premium bouquet is home to the most exciting content. It contains the best series, movies, sports, documentaries and more.

 

  1. If you open up the Premium bouquet for the lower priced bouquets, what then is the plan for Premium subscribers?  

There are 1000 Explora decoders up for grabs, exclusively for our Premium customers. Two Exploras will be won every hour for 21 working days. This means that 48 decoders will be given away everyday. The winners will be drawn randomly from the pool of active Premium customers.

 

  1. That’s excellent news

I couldn’t agree more

 

  1. What’s the catch? Why are you doing this?

There’s no catch. As I said earlier, from time to time, we window down content to subscribers on lower bouquets as a reward mechanism.

Additionally, the DStv Premium Open Week follows recent initiatives by MultiChoice where the EPL, La Liga and Euro 2016 were made available to Compact subscribers at no extra cost and NO price increases were implemented on DStv bouquets in Nigeria on 01 April. Both these initiatives are some of the innovative ways MultiChoice is adding more value to our subscribers’ video entertainment experience, irrespective of their subscription plan.

 

At MultiChoice, we understand that times are tough for our subscribers who not only want to experience the best television entertainment but do so at a price they can afford. Our DStv bouquets allow subscribers flexibility in price and choice without compromising quality or variety.

 

  1. Thank you for clarifying

It has been my genuine pleasure.

Warriors Set Record For Most Regular Season Wins – In one of the emotional season finales of all time, the Golden State Warriors set a record for the most regular season wins.

With Kobe Bryant retiring on the same night, the Warriors faced the Grizzlies with a chance to win their 73rd game of the season, one more than the record Michael Jordan set with the Bulls in 1996.

Kevin Hart, Magic Johnson & Twitter React To LA Clippers’ Owner Donald Sterling’s Ridiculous Racist Statements

The Warriors went after the record aggressively, with Curry making sure there were no slip ups. The potential MVP ended the game with 46 points, and became the first NBA player ever to make 400 3-point baskets in one season.

“It’s a great way to finish off what was an amazing regular season,” Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said. “I just told our guys I never in a million years would have guessed that that record would ever be broken. I thought it was like DiMaggio’s hit streak, really. I was wrong, but I will say the same thing now that I said 20 years ago, ‘I don’t think this one will ever be broken.’ Somebody’s got to go 74-8. I don’t see it, and I hope our fans aren’t expecting that next year.”
