Micheal Phelps Will Compete In The 2020 Tokyo Olympics

Featured Image

Micheal Phelps will be competing in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Atleast that’s what Ryan Lochte thinks.

Lochte is Phelp’s strongest rival.

“I guarantee he will be there,” Lochte said. “I think so. I really think so. So Michael, I’ll see you in Tokyo.”

Phelps has two events left in the final swimming competition of 100-meter butterfly, Friday, and medley relay on Saturday.

While Phelps has hinted this is his last Olympic appearance, his fellow American swimmer Lochte, however, told NBC’s TODAY Show, Friday, August 12, his next two races are just competitions where “Phelps seeks to add to his record 22-gold medal” adding that it may not be the record-breaker’s last.

This is Lochte’s  fourth appearance at the Olympic Games. It’s Phelps’ sixth time competing.

Micheal Phelps and Ryan Lochte

Phelps’ longtime coach Bob Bowman reaffirmed his student’s lack of intent to make it back to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

“I just don’t see it happening,” Bowman said. “He’s in such a good place personally. He doesn’t need it.”

Phelps’ mother, Debbie, sounded witty when asked about how she felt about her son competing in his sixth Olympics. She replied with, “That would be wonderful. I already have the race picked out.”

Presently, Micheal Phelps is the highest record holder with 22 gold medals and 26 medals in total.

He earned his last two in the 200-meter individual medley final on Thursday, August 11.

After the 2012 London Olympics, Phelps had announced he was retiring and Lochte said Ohelps would come back. Two years later in 2014, Phelps announced he was competing for the 2016 Rio Games.

Lochte disclosed to The Telegraph at the time, “I think he will come back. He’s still young. I think he will be back for Rio. We’ll see, he’ll miss the sport.”

And he was right. If Phelps decides to compete in the next Olympics, he’d be 35 years old and one of the oldest competitors. His age didn’t stop him from beating his competitors who were younger than him this time so we doubt it’d bother him at the next Olympics.

Allegri: Juventus Could Be Perfect

Featured Image

Juventus manager Allegri is warning his squad against complacency, saying they’re close to looking perfect.

Even though the Serie A club lost Paul Pogba and Alvaro Morata. They’ve added Miralem Pjanic, Gonzalo Higuain and Dani Alves to their ranks.

Despite the gap between Juve and the chasing pack appearing to widen with those signings, Allegri has insisted nothing is decided before a ball is kicked.

“We’ve assembled a formidable squad but it will be for nothing if we do not make a good start to the season,” he told the club’s official channel.

“Our strength this year must be the ability to quickly immerse ourselves in the championship, knowing that to win the sixth title you have to work a lot and prepare for the best, because we have very aggressive competitors.

“We have the best defence [in Serie A] and the top scorer of last season. The combination is potentially perfect.

“There’s only one problem: we have zero points like all the other teams, we must take nothing for granted and ensure we start better than we did last year.”

Juve’s league campaign begins against Fiorentina in Turin on August 20.

Guardiola: Barca Was A Bigger Struggle Than City

Featured Image

Guardiola is looking forward to his EPL bow on Saturday, but maintains it is not the toughest assignment for his career.

Seeing as the Spanish manager inherited a Barcelona team that had Lionel Messi, and then the treble-winning Bayern Munich. Many see Manchester City as a challenge for Guardiola.

However, the 45-year-old maintains spending time at Barcelona will be a tougher test than taking over Manchester City.

“The hardest test is always the first one because without the first one you don’t arrive to the second one,” he told a pre-match news conference.

“I was promoted to coach of Barcelona first team because I was successful in the previous experience with the second team, so [City] is not the hardest one.

“Every one is special. To have success at home is not easy. I moved to Germany and learned German to communicate with the players and the media. In Germany it was always a big challenge.

“Of course it is special for me in the Premier League. I know I will be judged in terms of results but for me I am a lucky guy to be here.”

Not Enough

Though hilarious, it has a blend of tragic and comic elements attached to its plot.

The story surrounds two young sisters from an affluent family who out of youthful exuberance decided to know what the other side of life looks like, but they ended up endangering their lives in the hands of a make-for-all young man, Chukwudi, as played by Ekubo.

On Chukwudi’s character, it’s a role Ekubo comically interpreted like an untutored illiterate, who fraudulently acquired wealth to maintain his luxury lifestyle. As a socialite and rich young man, he happens to be the favourite of all ladies around his net.

Directed by Afe Olumowe, Not Enough is another of Ebube Nwagbo’s family engaging movie. And it’s coming after the successful release of Smile Again, and its sequel, Romantic Rumour, though plans are up for a successful premiere that will soon be announced.

Mourinho: Rivals Don’t Like To Talk About Winning EPL Title

Featured Image

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has lashed out at rivals, saying they’re afraid of saying they want to win the EPL.

The Portuguese manager says the top clubs rivalling united for the EPL would rather not say if they want to win the title.

Speaking ahead of United’s Premier League opener against Bournemouth, Mourinho said: “Many teams think they can win it (the Premier League) but they are afraid to say it, they prefer to play a defensive game in the press.

“Man United has to say on day one that we want to win the title.”

The Premier League is set for its hotest title race in decades with United having signed several high profile stars such as Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Pep Guardiola has also spent huge sums of money on the likes of John Stones, Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gundogan to push City into contention, while Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham are all being backed to be in the mix.

Ancelotti: Bayern Are Ready For Dortmund

Featured Image

Carlo Ancelotti insists Bayern Munich are ready to play Borussia Dortmund on Sunday, despite a poor preseason.

The key players at Bayern Munich are missing, due to their involvement for their country in the Euro 2016.

However, Ancelotti is confident in his side and expects them to turn up against their rivals.

“It’s the first game of the new season and we are ready for it. It will be a difficult, but important game,” Ancelotti said at a news conference.

“We are playing for the first title of the season and they are all important to us. We want to win it all. Dortmund have a good team, but we are in a great spirit. We are high on confidence.

“Courage and confidence are very important factors, as is experience. We want to be in control, even if it is an away game in a fantastic stadium. We will not focus on individuals, but on their whole team. We want to play our own game, though.

“The Germany internationals have been here since August 5, but are ready to play.

“I have not decided who will potentially take penalties. It is very important to be confident in such a situation. It is often hard to find five players who are up for it!”

Bayern will be without Jerome Boateng, Arjen Robben and Renato Sanches at the weekend due to injury, but the former two are edging closer to a comeback.

“Boateng resumed training on Thursday, Robben returns to the pitch on Saturday and Renato Sanches will be out a bit longer, he could resume training next week,” Ancelotti added.

“[Holger] Badstuber has been training individually.”

Sunderland Sign Januzaj On Loan

Featured Image

David Moyes has confirmed the signing of Adnan Januzaj on a season-long loan by Sunderland.

The Belgian winger struggled for game time under Van Gaal, whereas he flourished when Moyes was in charge at Old Trafford.

Januzaj also had an unsuccessful loan with Dortmund, before returning to United. With Sunderland prepping to face Manchester City this weekend, Moyes announced the addition of the winger.

“Adnan will give us a different variation,” Moyes said.

“I have to get him back to the level he played at two years ago – he will get every opportunity to do the business. I’m hoping the Sunderland fans will see the real Adnan Januzaj.”

The 21-year-old winger will go straight into Sunderland’s squad to face City on Saturday, along with fellow new recruits Papy Djilobodji, Paddy McNair and Donald Love.

Januzaj has so far made 50 Premier League appearances for United, with his first professional goals coming against his new club at the Stadium of Light in October 2013.

13-Year-Old ‘Guru’ Breaks Record In Mathematics Competition

Featured Image

After solving a total of 17 mathematics questions in 60 seconds, a pupil of Scholars Universal Secondary School located in Ota, Ogun State, Oluwatunmise Idowu, has set a new record in the annual Cowbellpedia Mathematics Television quiz.

The 13-year-old, mathematics guru broke the record after defeating her contemporaries to emerge the best in the Group B stage of the on-going competition.

In her quest to setting the record, she had to slug it out with:

  •  Ayomide Nafisat Abdulwaheed, a JSS 3 pupil of Reality High School, Osogbo, Osun State;
  • Olajide Osoba of Atlantic Hall, Epe, Lagos State;
  • Edidiong Okon of Topfaith International Secondary School, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State;
  • Charles Adesoba of Petoa City College, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State;
  • Vanessa Ibol of NOWA Secondary School, New Kashi, Nassarawa State.

Idowu’s new record places her ahead of the previous 15 questions in 60 seconds record which was set last year by Ayodeji Akinkuowo of Adeyemi Demonstration College, Ondo State.

Apparently elated, the undisputed genius, who revealed that she had been spending four hours every day practising Mathematics, said:

“I want to win. My parents want me to win, just like my school also wants me victorious. Winning the crown will be the greatest gift I want from God this year. Apart from the one million naira prize, the bragging right in my school and among my friends will be inestimable. I can’t wait for the glorious moment. I pray for God’s favour.”

The competition is an annual programme organised by Promasidor Nigeria Limited. The phase won by Idowu involved a test of contestants’ speed and accuracy as they were required to answer as many questions as possible in 60 seconds.

Chimamanda Adichie’s New Film Scores Ghanaian Rapper M.anifest As Music Director

Featured Image

One of Chimamanda Adichie’s short stories will be adapted into a film and the music director of choice is, Ghanaian rapper, M.anifest.

On Monday of Last Week” is a short story from Adichie’s book The Thing Around Your Neck and will be directed by Ghanaian-American producer and filmmaker, Akosua Adoma Owusu.

Akosua obtained the film adaptation rights to Chimamanda Adichie’s book which will be produced under her production house, Obibini Pictures. 

Nigerian actress Chinasa Ogbuagu, from Sojourners will play the lead character of Kamara.

Kamara is a babysitter to a middle-school-aged son of a wealthy American couple whose parents are extremely busy. With an artist mum and an over-protective dad.

The storyline is plotted in feminism, immigration, and family.

On why she chose the story, Owusu shared:

I was inspired to adapt Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s short story On Monday of Last Week after living in Ghana for two years promoting Kwaku Ananse, a coming of age film adaptation of popular mythology from Africa and the African diaspora.

This film was my first attempt at making a fiction narrative short. Traveling to festivals and museum institutions around the world, I was compelled to return to the States and create a new work by adapting literature from contemporary African writers.

The themes of race, liberalism and sexuality in Adichie’s short story On Monday of Last Week resonated with my films on the “triple consciousness” of the African immigrant as I transition between experimental cinema, fine art and African tradition to complicate the nature of identity.

On Monday of Last Week is very much in line with themes I’ve explored in previous works, specifically conventional beauty and identity, including my award-winning short Me Broni Ba (2009) and my forthcoming feature Black Sunshine.

 

While we might be too busy to read a book at the moment, we look forward to Adichie’s new work with eagerness.

NUC Scraps Diploma Programmes In Nigerian Universities

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has stated plans to scrap the diploma programmes run at undergraduate level in Nigerian universities.

The development was made known by the Executive Secretary of the commission, Prof. Abubakar Adamu Rasheed, in Abuja earlier this week, when he received the Executive Secretary of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), Dr Masaudu Kazaure.

According to Prof. Rasheed, only polytechnics had the statutory right to run diploma programmes, adding that the commission would soon notify universities to stop diploma programmes.

“We are going to formally put a deadline on it, that there should be no diploma again to be run by universities, let us allow those that are statutory, allowed to run diploma programmes, the polytechnics, to continue with them,” he said.

While making the announcement, the Executive Secretary of National Board for Technical Education (NBTE), Dr Kazaure, made use of the medium to dispel the rumours that the federal government had converted the Kaduna Polytechnic and Yaba College of Technology to City University.

It would be recalled, the NUC had announced a list of unaccredited courses in Nigerian universities.

The Commission had warned that any certificate issued for these courses – click the link above to check – will be considered void.

Lionel Messi’s Trial: It Is Time To Start “Padding” Our Tax Literary And Transparency

Lionel Messi’s Trial: It Is Time To Start “Padding” Our Tax Literary And Transparency – Adeniyi Bamgboye

Lionel Messi is unarguably a soccer god. His performance on the football pitch is always extra terrestrial. You can’t just but fall in love with his football mastery and genius. It is safe to say success is no news to him. Here’s someone who has five ballons d’or in his kitty, four of which he won consecutively coupled with other brand endorsements and several millions of dollars in his bank accounts. On 6 July 2016, he was convicted alongside his father for tax forgery by the Spanish government with 21 prison months’ sentences and fines to go with it.

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

On the home front, Gov Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State was recently ordered to vacate his office by a Federal High Court in Abuja upon allegations of false information and forgery of tax documents prior to the 2015 gubernatorial election. Although, the case is still in  court, two things stand as  key learning points from these two cases which are – ignorance of the law is no longer an excuse and also, tax literacy is very necessary for every individual irrespective of his/her status in the society.

You may say Lionel Messi is a footballer and should be less bothered about his tax obligations and remittances. Fine. But remember the onus was on him to prove himself innocent. No tax consultant  spoke for him when the chips were down. It was never on record that he complained about being under or over taxed.

READ ALSO: Tax Fraud: Lionel Messi Sentenced To 21-Month In Prison

You may say also Gov. Ikpeazu worked as a civil servant, and also expect that the appropriate amount of tax should have been deducted from his salary at source while in service. But, being someone who was about to vie for a highly sensitive position such as that of the governor of a state, nothing stops him from subjecting himself for skeletal tax health check before swimming inside the murky ocean of  politics. Maybe, the lacuna in his tax records would have been spotted and closed at that time. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Some people would say his trial is being used by his political opponents to hound him, but truth be told, he made himself vulnerable. That’s a story for another day. Always check well before you append your signature on any document. If you are in doubt, ask questions.

Taxation serves as a strong fiscal instrument of the Government. To keep the economy afloat, the government now sees taxes and other levies as the new crude and source of income especially, when the relevance of internally generated revenue (taxes) to the Nigerian economy has been on the high side since the fall of price of crude. The rate at which the federal government is trying to achieve its N4.9 trillion revenue target from non-oil collection is also a pointer to fact that it isn’t business as usual.

Tax literacy is presently at the lowest ebb in our clime which is also responsible for the high tax evasion rate being experienced. The informal sector which is the engine room of every economy needs to be properly factored into the revenue generation drive of the government. How? Through increased tax awareness programmes, transparency and accountability from government at all levels. The taxpayers should be able to have a high level of comfort that their tax payments would be used for judicious projects that will better their lives and that of their future generations and not to be looted and mismanaged. Once this is properly done, it will create an atmosphere of trust and ensure voluntary compliance from tax payers.

The word “padding” is now popular especially judging from latest happenings in the National Assembly. Now, it is the time we “pad” our tax literacy level as citizens while the government should also replicate that in ensuring transparency. For instance, an average citizen of this country should know where, how and when to filing his/her tax returns while the government should be able to provide reasonable evidence of what the tax revenue was used for. In short, ensure you pay the right amount of tax, either as an individual or a business owner/corporate entity in order to avoid the taxman’s axe.

Though, Gov Ikpeazu’s case is still in court, Lionel Messi is now an ex convict. Whether he stays in prison or not. He will have to live with that sigma for the rest of his life.

A child who has no mother will not have scars to show on his back.

Kevin Hart’s Talent-less Rapper Alter Ego Chocolate Droppa Signed To Record Label

Featured Image

Kevin Hart never ceases to crack us up and this time he returns in the form of his alter ego who is a rapper named Choclate Droppa.

Need we add this rapper has zero punchlines and so far he’s spitting shitty bars. 

Kevin can decide to be a swimmer and we’ll still love him so when the comedian made an attempt to be taken seriously as a rapper, he released videos of his “rap skills”.

This we watched, we laughed, and we laughed some more.

Needless to say, the humorous actor/rapper has signed with Motown Records, owned by Berry Gordy despite some people calling Chocolate Droppa, silly, talent-less and shitty.

Kevin Hart and Jamie Foxx

Kevin Hart seems to be blazing his own trails while taking pointers off Jamie Foxx’s book as the latter had been a comedian at first then moved into serious roles after winning an Oscar for Ray.

Foxx had also attempted a career in music and was super successful as the Grammy Award-winning musician produced four albums charted highly on the US Billboard 200: Unpredictable (2005), topped the chart, Intuition (2008), Best Night of My Life (2010), and Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses (2015).

Some of his popular songs include, Blame It and Fall For Your Type.

We trust Kevin can get it done but if he wants to make a career out of music too, then he has to take the music serious as Foxx has set a very high bar.

Dear CEO: How Immune Is Your Business To The Risk Of Fraud?

Dear CEO: How Immune Is Your Business To The Risk Of Fraud? – Adeniyi Bamgboye

The success of every businessman depends on his ability to make a decent return on investment and make reasonable profit while the hallmark of every professional lies in his or her ability to commercial his skills, knowledge and expertise. We all know how challenging doing business in our clime can be. Not to mention issues such as unstable electricity, poor transportation system and lack of infrastructural facilities plaguing our economic growth and development as a nation. Adding the risk of fraud which is the subject matter of this article would be tantamount to adding salt to injury of a typical Nigerian entrepreneur because he already has enough giants to contend with.

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

Fraudulent activities within an organisation will not only serve as a clog to the wheel of progress of such an entity in terms of causing a drastic reduction in its profitability on the short term, and its ability to continue to operate as a going concern in the  long term.

An old cliché says “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. Prevention measures should not be handled with kid gloves. Large corporations and many medium and small companies do not like to prosecute fraudster since they rationalise that it could hurt their image. Businesses can be victims of fraud in three areas.

The first area is that which relates to the customer. This common fraud involves the customer walking into a business area thereby stealing goods that are on display. It is either concealed in bags, undergarments, or elsewhere. Tracking this shrinkage can be done through an educated observation of the customer while in action. Most business owners now deploy the use CCTV cameras; even go to the extent of snapping and pasting the pictures of offenders at strategic and visible locations within the store. This is to serve as a deterrent to those who may be nursing such shoplifting ambition in the future. For professionals who are into the business of exchanging ideas and by extension, service delivery, it is worthy of note to say that plagiarist are on the prowl which makes it highly imperative for such  professionals to get sufficient copyright protections  for their ideas and initiatives.

Secondly, employee fraud is also another area worthy of mention. Most employees are not dishonest when they are first hired. They only become dishonest when the opportunity becomes available. The onus now lies on the business owner to ensure those avenues for fraudulent activities to take place are always blocked. There is high propensity for this type of fraud to occur when elements such as the items of value, perpetrator and opportunity are in tandem with one another. Employee fraud usually involves cash register thefts, payroll falsification, issuing fraudulent refunds, embezzlement and check kiting.

Hiring honest employees is crucial. A background check can be conducted to ensure the company is about to employee the right person. This exercise will depict the character, credit history, public records and references of such applicant and also help to properly evaluate the applicant with regard to his or her fraud potentials. The employee, after being hired should be provided with an environment that will discourage dishonesty. Treating employees fairly can do this although, there are still some con artists, regardless of precautions taken, that are still capable of “take your shoes, while you are standing in them”.

The last element of fraud relates to the vendors and suppliers. Businesses face vulnerabilities through kickbacks which may involve the sale of unreported stocks, which are sold and shared by the vendor and employee. The perpetrators of the fraud may also make the business pay for inventory at inflated and unreasonable prices thereby sharing the portion of the excess. This is likely to occur in a business environment where the same vendor is constantly used, the purchasing manager does not take any vacation time, and inventory shows more goods in stock whose availability cannot be accounted for.

Finally, one of the best ways to prevent your business from fraud is to prosecute any employee who commits it while others includes establishing, maintaining and adherence to internal controls,  installing various detection devices for customers – oriented business and also restricting  access to only certain employees where customers and other employees have no business or need. Establishing high moral and ethical standards within the organisation is also very important. Things aren’t too rosy in the country at these austere times to start losing those meagre profits you’ve struggled to make for your business to some racketeers and fraudsters.

By now, a CEO should be able to provide an answer to the subject of this article as regards the level of immunity his or her business has to fraud related risks and exposures.

May we all thrive, and not just survive.

Jidenna Announces Groundbreaking Global Launch for “Long Live the Chief”

Featured Image
Jidenna Announces Groundbreaking Global Launch for Long Live the Chief Alongside Epic Records, Sony Music West Africa, & Sony Music South Africa

In true pioneering fashion, Epic announces a groundbreaking alliance with Sony Music West Africa, and Sony Music South Africa for the worldwide launch of Jidenna’s anxiously awaited debut album, Long Live The Chief [Wondaland Records/Epic Records]. During this synergistic global experience, Jidenna will tour the African continent for a series of exclusive performances, album release parties and the filming of a BBC documentary, which will chronicle his homecoming journey to Nigeria.

Not only is this unprecedented for Sony Music, but it marks the beginning of a new chapter in the label’s storied history.

“Never before have our divisions collaborated on something of this magnitude, but we are a global brand with a deep commitment to celebrating artists on the continent and throughout the African diaspora,” says Sylvia Rhone, President of Epic Records.  “And we are so excited to begin this journey with someone as uniquely talented and as special as Jidenna.”  Since bursting on the scene in 2015 with his Grammy nominated debut smash, “Classic Man,” from Wondaland’s compilation EP, The Eephus, Jidenna has been blazing a bright trail in the worlds of music and fashion.  The swank master of ceremonies’ distinctive swagger and style – both musically and sartorially — quickly established him as one of 2015’s hottest breakout stars.

Born in Wisconsin and raised in Nigeria, with stops afterwards in Boston, the San Francisco-Bay Area, and Brooklyn have imbued Jidenna with a worldly demeanor and ability to connect with listeners from many walks of life. Long Live The Chief’s first single “Little Bit More” captures Jidenna’s varied influences and heritage against a background of pulsing Afro beats drums, hinting at what’s to come on the rest of the album. Speaking on the album, Jidenna shares his thoughts: “The record as a whole represents all my experiences of the many worlds I’ve lived in and traveled through from Lagos to Los Angeles. “Confidently standing at the intersection of high-fashion, globetrotting, activism, and groundbreaking art, Long Live The Chief functions as a statement for modern music and culture at large.

Jidenna will be bringing all of this and more on his trip to Africa in late August. Heading to Nigeria first, Jidenna will host an exclusive album launch event in conjunction with TRACE TV, featuring a live performance at the newly opened Hard Rock Café in Lagos; interviews with Nigeria’s leading radio stations and lifestyle publications (This Day Style, BellaNaija.com, Linda Ikeji, Mania Magazine, Beat FM, Urban FM); and Jidenna will begin filming an exclusive documentary, produced by BBC International and True Africa, about his journey back to his childhood home in Enugu, Nigeria. Then, Jidenna will travel to Johannesburg, South Africa for a promotional tour which will include interviews with Top Billing, 5FM, YFM, GQ Africa; as well as an album launch party and a special showcase in conjunction with TRACE TV. “When I first met Jidenna I recognized that he is an artist with a unique energy that transcends boundaries, and we’re turning that energy way up by having him release his debut record in a way that transcends boundaries, too,” says Wondaland Records CEO Janelle Monáe.

And Jidenna is just getting started.  The music video for his latest single, “Chief Don’t Run,” premieres onAugust 18Jidenna relays, “Launching an album like this is massive, but I wouldn’t want to do it any other way. The road ahead is long, but like the song says: Chief Don’t Run.”

Nigeria Now A Poor Country – Buhari

Featured Image

Following the acute and spiraling drop in the price of oil, President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday said Nigeria had suddenly become a poor country.

This disclosure was brought to light by the President, at the State House, while playing host to the United Nations Population Fund, UNFPA, and United Nations’ Under-Secretary-General, Prof. Babatunde Osotimehin, in Abuja.

Buhari, however, stated that the prudent manner in which his administration had been handling the nation’s resources had made it impossible for Nigerians to know of the severe shortage in the country.

He said, “It has been a very difficult year for Nigeria. Before we came to office, petroleum sold for about $100 per barrel. Then it crashed to $37, and now oscillates between $40 and $45 per barrel.

“Suddenly, we’re a poor country, but commitment to transparency and accountability is not making people know that there is severe shortage.”

<

p style=”text-align: justify”>The colossal appraisal from the President on the State of the Nation came barely a day after South Africa dethroned Nigeria in the title of Africa’s largest economy.

According to IMF data, a recalculation using current exchange rates put South Africa on top because the rand has strengthened against the dollar.

Nigeria’s currency has fallen sharply since a peg to the dollar was dropped.

Nigeria rebased its economy in 2014 to include previously uncounted industries like telecoms, information technology, music, online sales, airlines, and film production.

Most countries do rebasing, updating the measure of the size of the economy, at least every three years or so, but Nigeria had not updated the components in its GDP base year since 1990.

Hypocrite! Fans Slash Chloe Grace Moretz For Posting Bare Photo

Featured Image

Chloe Grace Moretz has been called a “hypocrite” after her boyfriend, Brooklyn Beckham posted a photo of her in bikini and a shirt over it and a second snap of her bare back. 

Moretz, 19, was reminded she had told Kim Kardashian during one of her infamous nude selfie viral moments, “I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young woman, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies.”

Kim quipped back, “Let’s all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is.”

Moretz was body-shamed for doing the exact same thing she had condemned Kim for.

  • imperfectionist@youtubeditts it’s funny because she was just throwing shade at Kim Kardashian for the same thing. Smh. I love her but don’t be a hypocrite.

While those who saw nothing hypocritical about the picture defended her.

One user wrote, “It’s called being at the beach and if she wanted to take off the straps to tan her back she can do that. A lot of women do it on the daily. Also that’s irrelevant because we’re talking about the picture. It’s just her back. No one knows if she took the whole thing off or was covering her tits or pulled down her top. This picture still doesn’t compare to Kim’s picture. It’s not even in the same context.”

  • oneofakindtaylor – Anyone calling Chloe a hypocrite or comparing this to Kim’s photo, you are seriously wasting your breath 😂😂😂 Chloe’s fans are slaying all of you haters.
  • kamikaze_inter_fc – Umm duhhh she can literally be wearing a bikini that tied around her neck!!!

Here are the pictures causing the ruckus.

Does it compare to Kim’s?  Also, do you think Moretz is a hypocrite for calling out Kim and doing the exact same thing or she’s just a victim in this case?

Hit the comment section with your thoughts.

Anxiety As CBN Orders Nigerian Bank Workers To Declare Assets

Featured Image

Banker workers may have been left reeling in the gale of anxiety following a directive by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) that all personnel working in the 19 Deposit Money Banks in the country declare their assets.

The directive, which was contained in a letter by the Apex bank through the Banking Supervision Department of the CBN, was issued about 4 weeks ago. In the letter, bank officials were given only one week to complete the assets declaration process.

According to some economic experts, the move looks a lot like the Federal Government is beginning to expand its ongoing anti-corruption crusade to the private sector, especially the banking industry.

As of today, August 12, investigation showed that only the staffers of Ecobank Nigeria, First City Monument Bank Limited and Fidelity Bank Plc had complied with the directive.

A top official of one of the tier-1 banks who spoke on condition of anonymity while narrating his experience said:

 “All our staff members, from the most junior to the most senior, were asked to declare their assets through a court affidavit. It was handled by the company’s lawyer.

“We were asked to declare all our assets, including developed and undeveloped parcels of land, properties, houses in Nigeria and outside Nigeria etc. We were asked to also declare everything, including power generators at home. We complied within one week.”

It was learnt that some top officials living beyond their means may have been hit by the repulsive tornado of anxiety.

Punch gathered that quite a number of top bankers, who own huge assets, were panicky on how they would be able to justify the huge assets in their names should the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) begin to wield the interrogative hammer.

Speaking on the assets declaration, an executive director in one of the top three banks, said:

“It is part of the ongoing anti-corruption crusade in the country. The Federal Government is trying to deepen the anti-corruption war in the private sector, and it is believed that the banking sector is a very critical sector. This is why the CBN has been mandated to do this.”

A top official of the CBN who spoke on condition of anonymity revealed that the CBN’s move was in line with a letter issued to it by the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB.

“The directive is from the Code of Conduct Bureau. It is an extant rule. Before now, most people have not been complying. So the CCB wrote a letter to the CBN reminding it about it. This is why the CBN had to write the banks to comply”.

Not Too Old To Be Cool! Drake’s Dad Releases Sultry Bedroom RnB Video

Featured Image

Drake’s dad, Dennis Graham has proven you ain’t too old to start living your dreams as he launches his music career.

A video clip of Graham’s debut music video titled “Kinda Crazy” was leaked on TMZ and music producer Jamie Iovine, son of Apple’s Jimmy Iovine, confirmed he would be working with Graham to Rollingstone.

Iovine had yearned to see Drake after the latter had worked with his father, Jimmy Iovine. Iovine Jr later met both father and son at the BET Weekend at Epic Fest.

The producer stated, “Dennis had always been sort of a legend around Los Angeles as one of the flyest, smoothest dudes in Hollywood, putting guys my age to shame on a nightly basis. He told me about a project that he was working on that I might be interested in.””

He continued, “A few weeks later, he sends me ‘Kinda Crazy,’ and I thought, ‘People need to hear this!’ I had no idea what to expect but this guy has a lot of soul and passion for music, and you can see where Drake gets it from.”

Graham has been described as a sultry “bedroom RnB” singer although he doesn’t want to be limited by just one genre.

Iovine said, “Dennis doesn’t want to limit himself to a single genre. Now that the word is out, people are hitting us up asking to be a part of this, and we are very excited about the potential this project now has.”

If the video is anything to go by, Drake is in for a competition.

Also, when shooting the next video, Graham please get the costumier to wear you fitting suits. This looks just really old. 

Watch Drake’s dad’s video and tell us what you think.
