When Governors Look To Heaven For Economic Salvation

The alarming rate at which elected officials are outsourcing their statutory responsibilities to God is fast reaching a frightening crescendo. In Benue State, what seemed like a revival or crusade was held to lift up the burdens and economic hardship of the land to God with expectations of the miraculous.

This piece was written by Ayodele Adio. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

The occasion had in attendance the governor and his entire cabinet, a former governor of the state and now senator (George Akume) and a former chairman, Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party and also senator (Barnabas Gemade) amongst other high profile individuals. The sight of these statesmen, technocrats and politicians helplessly throwing their hands in the air and shedding crocodile tears, in the effort to arouse public sympathy ended up provoking indignation in many of us.

To think that these individuals have decades of experience in governance, top notch trainings and enviable global exposure but would resort to such shocking display of powerlessness means they are either cold hearted or are intellectually bankrupt. It is worthy to note that anytime an elected leader says, “God will help us” or suggests that we lift our eyes to the heavens, be sure that a colossal mistake has been made in electing such a person and the society will regret this deeply.

Since politicians are quick to depend on religious mysteries to confound economic and socio-political setbacks, it would only be right that we expose their feet of clay. There was a certain Joseph in the bible, who rose from the prison to become prime minister in Egypt and midwife the country through a period of economic turbulence.

Not once did Joseph call for a national day of prayer to save Egypt from famine, he had already instituted clever policies, that emphasised savings in times of surplus, and certain austerities in times of famine. There was food in Egypt throughout the seven years of famine because a 30 year old prime minister was visionary, strategic and had an impeccable management skills.

After the genocide had ended in 1994, over a million Rwandans had lost their lives. The country’s economy was in a total mess, life expectancy short, and children were dying at an alarming rate. Paul Kagame became president and the rest is history.

Rwanda grew its GDP at an average of eight percent for over a decade, life expectancy doubled and the rate of children dying under the age of five was reduced from 230 per 1000 to less than 55 per thousand. Avigdor Liberman, a former foreign secretary of Israel made the following proclamation, “No one believed, neither in Rwanda nor outside it that this small, divided Central African country would recover and rise from the ruins”. If Mr. Kagame could do it, why can’t Governor Ortom? Or maybe Kagame is favoured of God and Ortom isn’t and hence the need to seek the face of the Almighty more ardently?

For Goodness sake, Benue State is supposed to be the food basket of the nation, blessed with magnificent soil and hardworking farmers; hence to leave the people only to faith would be nothing short of irresponsibility on the part of the executive. That carefully managed theatrics of clever politicians, using religion to manipulate the masses has proven a master stroke each time it is deployed but someday the wind will blow so hard and the buttocks of the proverbial hen will been seen in the open. When that time comes, the oppressor will then become the very victim of a social structure turned volcanic.

Rather than gaze into the cloud in search for what will never appear, the governor of Benue is better off rolling up his sleeves and harnessing the tremendous potentials of his gifted State. It is okay if the governor does not have all of the capabilities to galvanise his state forward, no one does, but what smart leaders do is to get the best brains together in a room, hand them a bold and compelling vision and task them to create a road map and not waste their time in a crusade.

“God cannot be mocked, whatever a man sows that he shall also reap”.

11 Nigerian Governors Dragged To International Court Over Unpaid Salaries

Featured Image

A civil society organisation, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), has dragged 11 Nigerian state governors to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for failing to pay workers.

In a petition dated July 7, 2016 and signed by SERAP Executive Director, Adetokunbo Mumuni, the organisation said it was seriously concerned that non-payment of workers’ salaries by several state governments in Nigeria had made life impossible for the workers and their families.

The group called on the prosecutor of ICC, Mrs. Fatou Bensouda, to investigate allegations of collective punishment and crimes against humanity – against tens of thousands of Nigerian workers – as a result of non-payment of their salaries for several months.

SERAP listed the names of the 11 governors it dragged before the ICC as Rauf Agbesola of Osun State, Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State, Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State, Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State and Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

Others are Bayelsa’s Governor Seriake Dickson, Samuel Ortom of Benue State, Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi State, Yahaya Bello of Kogi State and Simon Lalong of Plateau State.

The petition reads in part: “SERAP contends that severe deprivation and mental or physical health challenges faced by Nigerian workers as a result of the non-payment of their salaries fulfil the requirements of this provision. This means that individual liability may attach to governors who continue to hide under the excuse of ‘limited allocations from Abuja’ to deny these workers the fruit of their labour.

“The state governors ought to know that their actions and/or omissions would likely cause serious physical or mental suffering or a serious attack upon the human dignity of workers whose salaries are not paid.”

“Non-payment of salaries for several months have reduced Nigerian workers to ‘bare life’, or life not worth living, thus taking away their human dignity. The inhumanity of the non-payment of workers’ salaries is illustrated by the serious threats this poses to the workers’ physical and mental health, and family life as well as their ability to contribute to the development of the country. The non-payment of salaries has created an environment of powerlessness for several workers and perpetuated a system of impunity in many states.

“Article 7(1)(k) of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court criminalises other inhumane acts intentionally causing great suffering, or serious injury to body or to mental or physical health. The treatment of many workers in several states reaches the level of ‘inhumane acts’ covered under this provision.

“Serious and systematic levels of inhuman and degrading treatment have expressly been recognised as qualifying as other ‘inhumane acts’. The same applies to the deprivation of adequate standard of living of thousands of workers such as adequate food, shelter, and medical care as a result of the non-payment of their salaries.

“In the present case, the inhumane acts include non-payment of salaries of workers; failure of governors to use their executive authority to ensure a viable and corruption-free state, failure to provide the necessary administrative, financial and political conditions to facilitate prompt and timely payment of workers’ salaries.

“To the extent that these acts expose tens of thousands of workers to inhumane acts while denying them the ability to challenge the legality of the action by the state governments, the acts can only be seen as a course of conduct involving the commission of inhumane acts.

“SERAP believes that the non-payment of salaries of workers amounts to a serious attack on human dignity covered in the definition of ‘other inhumane acts’ under the Rome Statute, and fit within the ICC’s mandate. The gravity of non-payment of workers’ salaries for several months should not be dismissed a priori as lesser than that of the radically egregious acts the ICC has so far prosecuted.

“SERAP argues that to deprive workers of their salaries is to deprive them of their livelihoods and basic necessities to the right to life and human dignity, and to and cause them suffering of sufficient gravity and severity comparable to enumerated acts of crimes against humanity under article 7 of the Rome Statute. Because no person can live without the means of living, the non-payment of workers’ salaries has affected individuals’ well-being and prevented them from enjoying basic necessities of life and caused great suffering to them and their family members.

“International human rights law requires states to protect the rights of workers including to timely payment of salaries. The ICC can and should exercise its mandates under the Rome Statute to enforce these internationally recognised human rights by holding individual governors accountable for the crimes against humanity committed against many Nigerian workers.

“Nigerian workers have for many years been victims of particularly heinous violations of international human rights law caused by massive looting of public treasury and mismanagement by high-ranking public officials.”“

Burna Boy

Lyrics off his first three-minute freestyle flowed thus:

Nigga sucking dick for airplay, my life’s a movie like Netflix, laying down and smoking mary jane, my life’s a movie like Netflix, my spaz on your bitches say hello, niggas lose their bitches everyday, smoking that loud and their mellow.

Y’all niggas talking on hearsay, even feds hate, now my phone is tapped bitch I hang with the whole gang bitch I’m so bang bang, I’m so damn damn, smoke that bomb dang straight from Amsterdam, grams on grams, grams on grams on grams. grams on grams on grams…..

They don”t know.

Did you feel it or his lyrics just seem laced with mere vulgarity and no content? After all it’s just a freestyle. Share your thoughts.

Fans’ thoughts:

 Ayo Ibitayo1 – Man, I expected more. Burna is honestly a natural freestyler, like I’m pretty sure 95% of his songs are freestyles.

Millian868 – Man like burna, should have cut out some of this.

Datboi forthere – It does sound good on a track but sometimes it makes me cringe when he is rapping like a yard man and then you find out of Wikipedia that he was born in Nigeria. I’m not hating, he can do his thing but it is getting kinda jarring.

SAM UOENO – Just bare vibes.

Buhari Appoints Mohammed Usman As Chief Of Defence Intelligence

Featured Image

The President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government has approved the appointment of  Air Vice Marshal Mohammed Saliu Usman as the new Chief of Defence Intelligence (CDI) for the armed forces.

Usman’s appointment on Thursday followed the current security challenges facing the country, particularly the resurgent militancy in the Niger Delta.

He is expected to replace Major General John Saduana Davies, who had been on acting capacity since January 2016, when the former CDI, Air Vice Marshal Monday Morgan retired.

According to the Armed Forces Statutes, the position of CDI, which is the apex in the intelligence community is rotational among the services.

With the Army and the Navy serving their terms of three years, it fell to the Airforce but AVM Morgan who got appointed when Buhari assumed office in 2015, was caught up with (ROD), ‘run out date’ and had to retire.

Vanguard reports that Major General Davies was therefore appointed on acting capacity until a suitable CDI whose recommendation was approved by President Buhari was appointed.

Air Vice Marshal Usman, was until his appointment, the Director of Air Intelligence at NAF HQ. He had served at the Defence Intelligence Agency as the Director of Intelligence before he was appointed Director of Air Intelligence.

In his career, he was an instructor at the Armed Forces Command and Staff College, Jaji and the Defence Intelligence School, Abuja. He was also a onetime Security Officer to a former Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Isaac Alfa (rtd).

Elated by the appointment, Usman expressed his ‘most profound’ gratitude to President Buhari, even as he promised to work in harmony with the services to ensure peace and security for the nation.

“Eight months ago, I was posted from here (DIA), to the NAF headquarters. I never knew that I will come back this way. I have taken it as an act of God. My doors will be open to all and I will be fair to all and I will carry everybody along”, he told officers and men of the Agency.

“I want to urge all of you to be up and doing because we are in challenging times. Let us put integrity into all that we are doing. Let us consider DIA as one family and let our actions speak for us” he said.

The CDI congratulated Major General Davies for his services to the nation noting that “during the short time he spent as Acting CDI, he took the organization to a very high level adding, “I will continue from where he stopped.

The declaration came few days after the state governor, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, stressed that there was no going back on his administration’s decision to cut down salaries of its workers.

However, Adeka stated that the state government’s reluctance to reverse its decision left them with no choice but to declare the strike action.

He said, “We staged a peaceful protest to the government house on Monday 4, where we made it clear that if by the government did not reverse its decision to cut our salaries would embark on strike.

“We told the Deputy Governor, Mr. Silas Agara who came and received our petition on behalf of the Governor that at the close of work on Monday, government must reverse the workers unfriendly decision or face strike.

“Since the government remains adamant, the unions would use its only weapon which is strike to press home its demands until the government return and maintain the status-quo.”

Featured Image

Pep Guardiola, new Man City boss says he is counting on Yaya Toure ahead of his debut season in the EPL.

Rumours had it the midfielder, who was sold by Guardiola, was going to be sold. Roberto Mancini, is keen on bringing his former player to Inter.

However, Guardiola was happy to confirm he would be counting on the 33-year-old for now, even though he failed to rule out the midfielder being sold on.

“All the players are coming back from holiday, they’re only beginning to train now. Not just Yaya, but everybody,” he told reporters at his first press conference as City boss.

“I’ve know Yaya for a long time. He did very, very well in Barcelona and here as well. He’s a huge, huge talent and of course all the players who are here right now count on me.

“After that we’re going to see what’s happening in the future. Not just in the case of Yaya, but the other players too. But Yaya is here, I count on him.”

Toure has made over 250 appearances in all competititons for City since joining them from Barcelona in 2010, winning two Premier League titles as well as an FA Cup in that time.

However, he was part of the club’s slump in the second half of last season that saw Manuel Pellegrini’s men fall out of contention for the title, prompting talk he was set to be sold.

#WhoFightEpp? Kemi Olunloyo Fat Shames Eniola Badmus For “Downgrading” Her Brand

Featured Image

Eniola Badmus is Kemi Olunloyo’s most recent vessel to spew her venom on as the popular social media critic called the actress out in a not too subtle diss for “downgrading” her brand.

What began the fight was a tweet by Eniola which read, “Aunty Kemi Olunloyo, spread love, not hate” to which Kemi replied, “@BadmusEniola, spread muscle, not fat”. And thus the banter began in full course.

Eniola replied, “Aunty Kemi Olunloyo me I no go exchange words with you oo Na hustle and money dey important right now anyway Aunty Kemi Aw market.”

Kemi took to her Instagram to share  her own side of things lest it be said, she courted trouble first.

She captioned her post:

Comedienne Eniola Badmus stepped on my toes today and got a clapback response. Because Im a social critic does not mean I spread HATE. HATE is a very strong word!

Go to her handle splashed with Etisalat and read the second tweet. She downgraded my name and brand in front of Etisalat. What happens when I ask them for a sponsorship? Always focus on the bigger picture.

Eniola’s fans cheered their support just as fans of Kemi Olunloyo lashed at Badmus.

Fans of Kemi begged the retired journalist to have mercy on the actress.

Cech Announces Retirement From International Football

Featured Image

Arsenal goalie, Petr Cech has announced his retirement form international football. He has won a record 124 caps for Czech.

The 34-year-old veteran shotstopper played all three matches at the Euro 2016. With Czech picking up just one point and finishing bottom of Group D.

After 14 years on the international scene, the veteran goalie has called time on a career that started in February 2002.

“It is a definite decision,” Cech told the Czech Republic Football Association (FACR).

“The fact we did not win at the Euros had no effect on my decision, although obviously I would have preferred a triumphant farewell.

“I like to do things 100 per cent and there will come a time where I have to ease the burden on myself. That time may not be now, but qualification for the World Cup takes two years and it would not have been right to announce that I do not feel I can carry on in the middle of that.

“Therefore it is better to make the decision now and close a beautiful chapter.”

He added on Twitter: “We lived some amazing moments together – wishing the team all the best for the future.”

The FACR paid tribute to Cech, thanking him for his achievements, saying: “Petr Cech has announced the end of his Czech representation. He played in 124 games, which nobody has beaten. Petr, thank you for everything!.”

He played in the 2006 World Cup as well as four consecutive Euros, with the highlight being his side’s run to the semi-finals at Euro 2004.

Bielsa Resigns As Lazio Manager Two Days After Appointment

Featured Image

Recently appointed Lazio coach, Marcelo Bielsa has announced his resignation as coach of the club, just two days after he was appointed.

Lazio announced on Wednesday, that the ex-Chile coach was going to be at the helm of the club. With an official statement released to that effect.

However, in a turn of events, and reports stating Bielsa was having doubts about the move. It has emerged, that the manager has walked away from the job.

Ex-striker, Primavera coach and last term’s interim boss Simone Inzaghi is set to temporarily re-assume the role of head coach in the dugout as the outfit weigh up their next options amidst the chaos.

“We acknowledge with astonishment the resignation of Marcelo Bielsa, inclusive of his collaborators, in blatant violation of the deal agreed via the contracts signed last week and lawfully deposited with the Lega and the FIGC, according to all the related procedures,” a club statement read.

“The club reserves the right to take all actions that will protect its rights, and hands the leadership of the team during the preparatory training to Simone Inzaghi.”

Early speculation has suggested Gerardo Martino’s decision to step down as Argentina coach may have prompted countryman Bielsa, who previously coached the national team from 1998 to 2004, to reconsider his next move.

Reports state that Lazio will take legal action against Bielsa.

Micheal Jackson’s Son, Prince Jackson Slammed For Saying #AllLivesMatter And Not #BlackLivesMatter

Featured Image

Prince Jackson has faced serious social media vitriol after he took to Twitter to address the hashtag and focus on #BlackLivesMatter and opted the world should rather be focused on #AllLivesMatter following the racist shooting of two black men, Anton Sterling and Philando Castille this week.

The teenager refused to see either cause as a separate movement and opined all lives were just as important regardless what skin color or race.

prince jackson

Prince Jackson slammed for comparing #BlackLivesMatter with #AllLivesMatter

He wrote in a series of tweets:

“I understand that you want to focus on #blacklivesmatter but why only focus on one life that matters when all do. Why just protect only one race I honestly cried when I saw #AltonSterling son cry because I know what it’s like to have a father taken.

It’s time to stand up, for your safety, your family’s safety, your loved ones’ safety and even your neighbors’ safety.”

That’s not to say all cops are brutal racists, that’s not the case, but there are a significant few who have ruined the lives of many. Because the one group of people who are tasked(and payed) for our protection are shooting our brothers and sisters.

We are now living in a world where it’s dangerous to go to public gatherings because of terrorist attacks and we cannot feel safe.”

But to focus on one race excludes other races. I was raised by the world and know how different races are prosecuted. If there is some confusion let me correct myself.

Black lives do matter and unfortunately are being wrongfully executed. Something must be done. ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻🌎🌍🌏#AllLivesMatter #ManintheMirror.

Everyone need to look in the mirror and start the change there because it’s not just black lives that matter it’s all lives.”

Wiz Khalifa Talks Fashion And Why He Is Revamping His Sense Of Style

Featured Image

Wiz Khalifa is revamping his fashion as he wants his new sense of style to better portray him both as a man and as an artiste.

The 28-year-old disclosed during an interview he has been working with a personal stylist, Lauren Matos, for over a year and half as he wanted to upgrade his look to “something more tailored and mature.”

He said, “Before, I was more into streetwear, like a lot of Supreme and Palace when it was first dropping. Lauren really put me onto more high-end designers who can still get that streetwear look. I don’t want to look like a mannequin. I feel like when people start getting money, they start dressing weird.”

Listing his five fashion must-haves, Wiz Khalifa explained how each piece influences his fashion game.

Wiz Khalifa is uping his fashion style

Jeans – You can always catch me in a pair of Saint Laurent jeans. The black ones right now are my favorite, but I love white, too. I like to wear all white: white shirt, white hat, white jeans. It just looks awesome. I look like a little scoop of ice cream.

Shirt – I have a favorite style: I call them my party shirts. Nice button-ups, real silky, with crazy prints. I get them from all over. This look also started a year and a half ago, when I met Lauren. But I also want to graduate my style. I’m 28 years old, so you can’t dress like no little kid anymore.

Jacket – I’ve been wearing this black bomber a lot. This is actually a custom jacket that my stylist, Lauren, got sent to me. As soon as I got with Lauren, she really put me onto the tailoring game and how to up my closet. We get a lot of stuff custom-made. I’m really skinny, so a lot of pieces, unless they’re from certain designers, they’re not built for my body.

Shoes – My favorite shoe right now is the Gucci loafer. I’ve got the slide style and the full loafer. I have brown, black and the ones with the fur on them, too. I’ve been wearing the all-around loafers more, but in L.A., I can wear whatever, because at nighttime it gets a little chilly, so I can wear the fur joints.

Accessories – Being that I’m from the ’Burgh and a Steelers fan, I always rep Pittsburgh with black and yellow jewelry. I’ve been through that whole Rolex phase.

Khalifa is gearing for the release of his new album this fall as well as a July tour with Snoop Dogg. The father-of-one was raised in Pittsburgh but now lives in Los Angeles.

He also considers himself as a budding fashion icon and having his own style brand might be in the works of his future.

Rondo: Bulls Is Still Butler’s Team

Featured Image

Rajon Rondo has stated on that the Chicago Bulls has three alphas in him, Dwayne Wade and Jimmy Butler. But the team still belongs to Butler.

The Bulls officially announced the signing of the Point Guard on Thursday, with the details not disclosed. However it is rumoured to be a two-year $28 million contract.

“Jimmy’s the youngest, he’s the engine here,” Rondo told reporters. “It’ll be Jimmy, Wade, and then it will be a pecking order.”

Rondo, 30, said he’s confident he will be able to coexist with Wade, 34, and Butler, 26, in Chicago.

“The main thing is that we have three alphas. There will be three alphas on the team,” Rondo told reporters. “Just trying to mesh together and try to make sure we are doing the best thing for the team.”

He said he learned from watching the Big Three in Boston (Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen) that the key to three stars coexisting on a team is to “sacrifice for one another.”

“Playing in Boston, playing with the Big Three, I was able to see how those guys interacted with one another. Knowing that everything doesn’t have to be perfect in practice,” he said.

“You’re going to disagree, but if you all have one common goal at the end of the day and that’s to get a W, that’s all that matters. Egos go out the window and we all have one common goal.”

“He’s a very important player just as he has been with Atletico Madrid throughout the season.”

“Wakaa! The Musical” a Nigerian stage production which tells the story of four young graduates who reached an agreement before separating to pursue individual endeavors, have achieved a great feat as the first Nigerian play to be performed to a London audience.

Webbed in love, money, power and broken dreams with a dash of Afrobeat, Wakaa! received great reviews after its showings last year and is now geared to be performed for London audiences as each character in the play will reveal life as it’s lived by young Nigerians today.

“Wakaa! The Musical” played to 9,000 people in a 12-performance run in Lagos last December, and will open at the Shaw Theater in London on July 21.

Wakaa! The musical sets to debut on London stage

Written and produced by Bolanle Austen Peters,  she described “Wakaa!” as the story of “a young guy who wants to leave Nigeria to live the fast life in London, but then he discovers (the) grass is not always greener elsewhere”, Yahoo reports.

Austen added that “Wakaa!” is a story about the graft and excesses of Nigerian politicians.

The writer cum producer started her profession as a lawyer before opening the popular Terra Kultura arts center, in Lagos several years ago. She began her art with plays before moving to musicals and expanding to a much wider audience.

Deschamps: France Made History By Beating Germany

Featured Image

Didier Deschamps has praised his France side for making history in the win over Germany. A 2-0 win over the world champions, ended France’s 58-year wait of a win over Germany.

Antoine Griezmann’s brace sent France to the final, eliminating Germany. This is the first time France has beaten Germany in a major tournament since 1958.

#Euro2016: Griezmann Brace Sends France To Final, As Germany Misses Out

The Atletico man opened the scoring from the spot. And completed his brace 18 minutes from the final whistle, to send the hosts to the final.

And Deschamps lauded his squad as France look to claim a third European Championship crown.

“We’ve already [written history]. It was a long time since we’d beaten Germany but that didn’t mean anything today,” he told reporters after the match.

“We’re into the final and there’s a trophy up for grabs. I’m delighted for the players, it was a very tough game against a team who made us suffer but we suffered together.

“When you see the passion and the fervour in the stands around the ground…this team has everything it takes to be loved.

“It’s a great emotion – we had to suffer but never gave up and that’s great for me. This is a great story – the players wrote history by knocking out Germany.

“We don’t have the power to solve people’s problems but we can generate emotions so they forget their worries. We generate passion and fervour, we can see that.”

Deschamps, who won the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000, was asked if Thursday’s triumph was the best moment since he stopped playing.
And he added: “It’s a great emotion, of course, I don’t know if it’s better than anything else.

“It’s a great moment, a Euro semi at home and you see the ground packed to the rafters. Although we had to suffer we never gave up and that’s great.”

France now look ahead to Sunday’s showdown with Portugal, a quick turnaround for the hosts, who only have two full days of rest.

“It’s very short before the final, just three days so we have to savour tonight,” the 47-year-old continued.

“I will ensure that even if it’s just two or three per cent we will go into Sunday’s game in top possible condition.

“Of course, having played football it’s not quite the same between three and four recovery days but that’s the way the fixtures were published.

“We had seven days between earlier games and that was too much, but that’s just the way it is. We will do everything we can with the medical team.

“We have a chance and Portugal have a chance, just because we are the host nation and beat Germany, it doesn’t give us additional powers.

“Portugal believe in themselves, we believe in ourselves.”
