Mr. Gwadabe noted that currency speculators leveraged on the delay in the sale of forex to BDCs on Thursday to manipulate the market.

He, however, said that the naira was expected to bounce back fully by the coming days as the CBN, Travelex and some commercial banks were working hard to ease the liquidity challenges.

Tragedy As Commercial Driver Kills 4 FRSC Officials In Zamfara

Featured Image

The gale of tragedy struck in Talata Mafara town in Zamfara State, as a Gusau bound commercial vehicle killed four officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), on Friday, October 28, 2016.

According to a source, who witnessed the incident, the commercial vehicle, a Volkswagen Golf, which was heading to Gusau from Sokoto, at a very high speed, crashed into the FRSC officials, who were holding mobile court along the busy Sokoto-Gusau Road.

The source said: “The FRSC officials tried to stop him but because he was golf driver was driving at a very high speed, he could not stop, so hit them and it resulted in the death of four of them.”

The source who preferred anonymity also disclosed that the driver absconded into the bush abandoning the passengers in his vehicle, on sighting that he had killed four officials of the FRSC.

When contacted, the Zamfara State Sector Commander of the corps, Mr Amos Y Thliza, who confirmed the tragedy, remained apparently reticent in view of his sad mood.

Also speaking, another source at the scene of the accident said the injured ones have been rushed to a medical facility for treatment.

Meanwhile, the driver has since been arrested and handed over to the Police for further investigations and further necessary action.

According to a press release signed by Bisi Kazeem, Head, Media Relations and Strategy of FRSC, Mr. Boboye Oyeyemi, the corps marshal, directed that the full weight of law must be applied against the driver for the dastardly killings‎.

Nigerian Gov’t Begs Oil Workers To Shelve Planned Strike

Featured Image

The Federal Government of Nigeria has pleaded with oil workers to shelve their planned strike over the alleged sacking of 3,000 of its members by oil companies.

The appeal was made by the Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, on Friday, when speaking with newsmen in Abuja.

READ ALSO: Nigerian Oil Workers Threaten Strike Action Over ‘Sale’ Of National Assets

Oil workers under the aegis of the National Union of Petroleum and National Gas (NUPENG), and Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN), had on October 26, issued a 21-day ultimatum to the government.

The unions had called on the federal government to intervene on the matter by putting a stop to the sacking of its members.

Speaking on behalf of the government on the matter, Ngige said the ministry, earlier in the year, had several meetings with the employers, leadership of the unions and employees in which an agreement was reached.

His words: “We all had an agreement and the agreement was that instead of retrenchment, they should focus on reducing some of their top most positions of the establishments.

“We also agreed that some allowances should be shielded up, while some offices of directors and top management staff should be pegged.

“They all agreed and that is what they have been doing, we also formed a kind of forum between the employers, employees and unions with my ministry.

“The forum is supposed to be meeting to fashion out oil and gas labour relations which will guide whatever is happening there.

“I do not know if NUPGENG is dissatisfied with what is coming out from that forum.’’

The minister recalled that two months ago “NUPGENG and PENGASSAN had submitted petitions against the oil and gas companies, and there were marathon meetings held with the employers.”

According to Ngige, the ministry had then convened series of meetings where issues were looked into on companies’ basis to understand why they should not retrench.

The minister stated that he had then directed the companies to recall their retrenched workers as the right procedures and due process as stipulated in Section 20 of the Redundancy Law was not followed.

“I will find out why NUPGENG is issuing the 21-day ultimatum and also call for a meeting to look at the developing issues.

“If there are particular companies that have deviated from the agreement we have reached, we will call those companies and ask them to comply,’’ the minister said.

Nigerian Senate Amends CCT/CCB Act, Transfers President’s Power To NASS

Featured Image

The senate on Thursday amended the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunal Act (CCB/CCT Act) – effectively transferring the president’s regulatory power over the bureau and tribunal to the National Assembly.

The senate also reintroduced a provision which authorises the CCB to invite anyone found culpable in asset declaration to make necessary correction as against being charged to the tribunal for trial – a provision that had earlier been expunged from the extant law.

The passage of the bill comes few months after the trial of Senate President Bukola for false asset declaration commenced at the CCT.

The senate president had flayed on the CCB, which filed the charges against him, for not inviting him for questioning on the charges before it filed them.

Although, actual amendments to the Act were done by the house of representatives and passed on May 31, the senate concurred with the house and passed the bill on Thursday, October 27, 2016.

Yesterday, the senate passed 14 amendments to the Act.

It amended section 3 of the Act thus: “Upon complaint(s) of any breach or where it appears to the bureau that there is a breach of the provision or this Act, the person concerned shall be given particulars of such non compliance or breaches to explain before any reference to the tribunal.”

This means that the CCB cannot immediately refer a matter to the CCT without giving a public officer a notice; one of the contentions of Saraki.

Section 1 (4) which was expunged, and replaced with “the chairman and members shall serve for a term of five years subject to renewal for one further term only”.

Section 4 (2) was amended to substitute the word “president” with “the national assembly” as the one to confer powers on the bureau and the tribunal.

The parliament also succeeded in stripping the president of the power of total control over the CCB by amending section 18(1) & (2) of the CCB/CCT Act and simultaneously transferring such powers to the National Assembly.

Section 18(1) & (2) of the extant Act provides thus: “The president may by order exempt any cadre of public officers from the provisions of the Act if it appears to him that their position in the public service is below the rank which it considers appropriate for the application of those provisions.

“The president may by order confer on the Bureau such additional powers as may appear to it to be necessary to enable it discharge more effectively the functions conferred upon it under this Act.”

The “president” in the above provisions has now been substituted with “National Assembly” which implies that the National Assembly will now determine the power of the CCB.

The National Assembly, also in the amendment, will now determine who should be exempted from asset declaration or not.

Rangers Manager Mark Warburton Not Interested In Wigan Job

Featured Image

Mark Warburton hopes his future as Rangers manager is long term after reports linked him with the vacant managerial post Wigan.

The Rangers boss is reportedly a rival to MK Dons boss Karl Robinson and former Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs for the Latics job, which has been vacant since the sacking of Gary Caldwell.

Speaking ahead of the visit of Kilmarnock on Saturday, Warburton said: “I am absolutely bemused where these reports come from. I am amazed they even make the papers.”

Warburton, who signed James Tavernier, Martyn Waghorn and Rob Kiernan from Wigan last season, was said to be highly-rated by the club’s chairman David Sharpe.

However, Warburton denies having a relationship with Sharpe and insists he is committed to Rangers.

“I didn’t actually deal with David. I have no relationship there at all,” Warburton added. “With all respect to Wigan I have no idea where the rumour has come from.

“I am the manager of Rangers, I would never talk about another club or another job. I am just amazed that it even makes the tabloids.”

“I hope very much it is long term [project at Rangers. We spoke about building foundations.

“We look at where the club has been the last four or five years, rightly or wrongly, and the club needs to move forward on strong foundations.

“That is our task and our aim, and working closely with the chairman and the board and everyone involved with the club and if we can do that and put the club on sound footings then we will be in a good place.

“I just don’t think we can afford to move too recklessly and try to move too quickly without those strong foundations.”

Manchester United have not received any approach from Wigan for permission to talk to Warren Joyce, according to Sky Sports.

United’s U21 boss Joyce is reportedly in line for the managerial vacancy at the struggling Sky Bet Championship club and bookmakers have reacted by slashing his odds to succeed Gary Caldwell.

Joyce is highly regarded at Old Trafford and helped nurture the careers of Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Adnan Januzaj to name a few.

The 51-year-old, who was previously in charge of United’s Belgian feeder club Royal Antwerp, has won back-to-back U21 Premier League titles at United.

United legend Ryan Giggs, and former MK Dons boss Karl Robinson have also been linked with the DW Stadium hot-seat.

Samson Siasia Finally Given His Outstanding Salary

Featured Image

Former Nigerian football coach Samson Siasia has finally been paid 5 months’ salary being owed him by the Nigerian Football Federation.

Siasia, who lead the Flying Eagles to bronze at the 2016 Olympics, had threatened to disrupt preparations for the 2018 World Cup if he wasn’t paid.

“I have given them a two-week ultimatum to pay me or I will sit inside the NFF office in Abuja until I get paid,” he told the BBC in September.

“The national team is preparing for a World Cup qualifier and to be honest my unhealthy distractions are the last thing they need right now.

“I’ve made it clear in my letter that my assistants and I should be paid the backlog owed because it’s inhuman.

“As head of our families we sacrificed everything for the country but the NFF refused to pay us – it’s not only heartless but wicked.”

All is now well between both parties, as Siasia confirmed to Goal, saying “Yea, I have gotten my salaries, thank you.”

Aitor Karanka says Adama Traore will become “an amazing player” at Middlesbrough once he learns the art of teamwork.

The Barcelona academy graduate, who moved from Aston Villa to Teesside in August, was handed his first Premier League start in Boro’s goalless draw at Arsenal.

The 20-year-old was named Man of the Match for his display at the Emirates Stadium, drawing praise from Karanka.

“He has massive potential,” the Boro boss said. “He needs to learn tactically but he’s ready to learn.

“I said before the Arsenal game that Adama can bring us the pace we didn’t have. In the Premier League you need players like him.

“It’s more about him understanding that he’s come into a really organised team. He needs to understand everything. When he does he will be an amazing player.”

The 21-year-old academy graduate revealed his delight to complete his new deal, and targeted a return to fitness after a thigh problem.

Gary Caldwell Saddened By Wigan Exit

Featured Image

Gary Caldwell has released a statement expressing his “great sadness” that he was not given the time to finish the job he started at Wigan.

Caldwell was sacked by the Sky Bet Championship strugglers after just 18 months in charge at the DW Stadium.

The 34-year-old former defender led the Latics to the League One title last season in his first managerial position but a poor start this term – which yielded just two wins in 14 matches – cost him his job.

“I am obviously incredibly disappointed to be leaving Wigan Athletic after more than seven years at the club,” said Caldwell.

“Having led the team to promotion in my first full season in charge as manager I was hopeful of being given the time necessary to turn results around and so it is with great sadness that I will now not be able to finish the job I started.

“I am fully aware that the results recently haven’t been good enough but having not lost by more than one goal all season, I truly believed that we were not far away from getting things right and turning the corner.”

Serie A champions Juventus are keeping an eye on Sergio Aguero’s situation at Manchester City, according to Don Balon.

In recent weeks, Pep Guardiola has chosen not to start the Argentina international in a number of high-profile fixtures – away at Barcelona and, more recently, in Wednesday’s EFL Cup defeat to Manchester United.

Luke Shaw Is Spoiling To Impress Mourinho

Featured Image

Manchester United left back, Luke Shaw is determined to step up and prove his worth to coach Jose Mourinho.

The England international has had an indifferent start to life under Mourinho and at Unites, partly due to injury.

Shaw is eager to cement his position as left back and was well on the way to that after impressing in preseason. However, a mistake in the 3-1 loss to Watford drew scathing criticism from Mourinho in September.

After missing the 4-0 thrashing to Chelsea, he was utilised in the EFL cup against Manchester City due to the unavailability of Bailly and the Englishman is eager to return to the starting XI.

“It’s normal you’re frustrated on Sunday because I would have loved to play in that game [against Chelsea] but it obviously wasn’t meant to be and at the end of the day it is the manager’s decision,” said Shaw.

“Obviously with the injury with Eric now it might be my time to step up and show the manager what I can do and that he can trust me.

“The first half [against City] wasn’t the best of mine. I thought I did good but on some of the crosses I wasn’t maybe getting tight enough, but he [Jesus Navas] is a very quick player and it was quite tough.

“But I came out in the second half and I felt much better. I was closing him sharply, we made sure he got no crosses in and I felt really good. Hopefully I play on Saturday and get another 90 minutes and a good result with that.”

Shaw and United welcome Burnley to Old Trafford on Saturday, seeking to end a three-game winless streak in the Premier League.

As soon as the EFCC released the former spokesman, the anti-corruption agency got a warrant to further detain former FCT Minister, Bala Mohammed.

The electoral commission also named Mr. Alabi Ebenezer Omotayo as his running mate.

The decision was in clear obedience to a ruling by a Federal High Court in Abuja which ordered that Mr. Ibrahim be used to replace Eyitayo Jegede.

The decision is coming against the backdrop of another court ruling on Thursday by an Akure High Court which ordered that Mr. Jegede still be retained as the candidate of the party.
