Enjugu was quoted in a statement from the NNPC on Friday to have said that “the good news from our stand point is that we have scored 24 out of the 24 parameters for the production of aviation fuel and I must say that this is made possible because of the never-give-up attitude of workers of the great PHRC.”

The MD added that the refinery has successfully blended ATK and was only waiting for appropriate conditions to commence full scale production of the product in response to demand of the aviation sector.

Speaking at the event, Baru described PHRC as the nation’s flagship refining company, noting that the corporation would do everything possible to ensure that the refinery was not just in operation but also operating profitably and contributing effectively to meeting local demand for petroleum products.

He said, “We cannot under-estimate the importance of refining because that is our identity and we shall do whatever it takes to ensure that your two plants are running at all times and work to tackle whatever could militate against your achieving set targets and objectives.”

The NNPC added that this is part of efforts to reposition the refinery for profitability, in line with the 12-point agenda of the management of the apex oil firm.

CBN Governor Emefiele Calls For A Tax On GSM Calls Above 3 Minutes

Featured Image

In the wake of the current recession, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, is calling on the federal government to consider taxing Nigerians on every call above three minutes.

The call by the governor of the Apex Bank is aimed at raising additional revenue and getting the country’s economy back on track.

The Cable quoted him as saying this at the Annual Bankers’ Dinner in Lagos on Friday, November 18.

His words:There are several ways we can raise additional revenue to finance the increased expenditure that is needed to engender fast and sustainable growth in the economy.

I think we can consider introducing a negligible telecom surcharge to be entirely borne by the initiator of a call. In order to protect the poor and vulnerable amongst us, we could structure it to only take effect after the third minute of talk.

Some analyses have indicated that the government could earn about N100 billion per annum from this alone. Obviously this surcharge will mainly be borne by middle and upper class people since I do not know many poor people who make calls for more than 3 minutes.”

He continued:

“Nigeria could consider introducing minimal property taxes across the country. This not only raises money for the government but also could be a veritable weapon against corruption since it creates a database of who really owns homes in this country”.

“Another option to consider would be to fully implement the 2003 Cabotage Act. This is Act stipulates that all cargoes and passengers in the inland and coastal waters be transported by ships and ferries built, owned, crewed and manned by Nigerians.”

“Contrary to the requirement of this Act, there are several foreign-owned vessels providing shipping services locally. Out of about 600 ships that operate within our waters, only about 60 of them are owned by Nigerians and are mostly idle, in violation of the Act.

“Industry sources suggest Nigeria may be losing as much as N2 trillion annually from this anomaly. In addition to raising revenue, a full implementation of the Act could also spur job creation, capacity building, and significant backward integration.”

Pochettino Praises Kane As One Of The Best Strikers In The World

Featured Image

Harry Kane’s late brace helped Tottenham record a 3-2 win over West Ham earning him high praise from Pochettino, who believes he is one of the best strikers in the world.

The England international needed just 160 seconds to score both goals. Antonio put West Ham in front, before Harry Winks equalised for the Spurs. Lanzini then restored West Ham’s lead from the spot.

However, in the dying minutes of the game, Kane equalised from close range, pouncing on a rebound, before scoring from the spot.

“We showed great character and personality and we always tried to find the goal and fight until the last minute,” Pochettino told BT Sport.

“We created more than West Ham and if one team deserved to win more it was us. It was not our best performance or best game but it was difficult and so it is a fantastic three points.

“It was important to us to recover that feeling that you only get with winning games.

“Harry Kane is always very important, he is our main striker and one of the best strikers in the world. You miss that type of player when he does not play for 10 or 11 games.”

Busquets: Messi And Suarez Absence Not An Excuse

Featured Image

Barcelona midfielder, Sergio Busquets says the absence of Messi and Suarez should not be used as an excuse for the goalless draw against Malaga.

The blaugrana lacked a bite up front and Malaga’s goalkeeper, Carlos Kameni was at his best to help his side earn the draw.

Barca’s attack was noticeably blunted without Messi, who withdrew from the squad shortly before kick-off due to an illness, and the suspended Suarez.

Busquets, however, feels it was a matter of luck deserting his side as they dropped points at Camp Nou for the third time this season.

“Messi and Suarez are two of the best and you always miss them, but it’s not an excuse. We tried a thousand times and we couldn’t score,” he told BeIn Sports.

“We wanted to get all three points. They sat back and it was really difficult to beat them.

“We put a few more crosses into the box in the second half but we’re missing a bit of luck at the moment. They wanted to defend, that was their game-plan and we couldn’t find a way through.

“We knew they would play with five in defence but they played with everyone behind the ball. We knew they would and we know these kind of games are difficult. We scored goals that were disallowed and we missed out on the points.”

Biafranisation Of Nigeria [Must Read]

Biafranisation of Nigeria – Muyiwa Adetiba

I can only remember meeting Professor Vincent Chukwuemeka Ike once or maybe twice—it was so long ago and time plays tricks on one’s memory. But I do distinctly remember spending an evening with him at his Yaba residence some four decades ago. I was then a young man in search of literary direction. I had seriously considered veering into creative writing—poems, plays and novels—and sought the best way to go about it.

This piece was written by Muyiwa Adetiba. 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 book: ‘Toads for supper’ by Professor Ike was one of the toasts in town at the time so I was going to one of the best as it were for advice. I had a manuscript I wanted him to look at and advise on. If he had seen hundreds of such manuscripts and met thousands of wannabe writers, he made a good job of hiding it.

He was polite and patient as he explained the constraints and hurdles along the path of young writers. He did not in any way discourage me. In fact, I think he gave me one or two names I could call on for further assistance. I left feeling grateful. Since then I had only met him on the pages of newspapers. I was to come across him again two weeks ago on the pages of Vanguard Newspaper where a blazing headline screamed, ‘Biafranisation.’

It was credited to him. Professor Ike leading an ethnic campaign? It didn’t quite gel with the image I had carried of him and quickly rushed to read the article. I was not only relieved after I had read the article, his arguments resonated with me. In fact, I had canvassed some of them some years ago during a meeting with a top Yoruba leader. If the government at the centre was as inept as claimed, I had reasoned, why then were the Yoruba leaders relying so heavily on it for direction and support. Why couldn’t they look inwards?

His argument was that the centre was so powerful that no section of the country could survive without it. He cited the proposed intra-state railway line among the South-West states that was supposed to encourage easier movement of goods and services within the states but which was purportedly scuttled by the centre as an example. I didn’t think that was enough deterrent and said so. I also said that the slogan of an Oduduwa nation or any other slogan for that matter, would make no sense to me if Osun State for example could not show me that it could use its resources— men and material—better than say Rivers State.

I had to be sure I would be better off leaving the whole for the part. Next to squash, my favourite game is chess. It is a game that teaches you to look inwards in a strategic way. Each time you lose an officer, you look at the remaining officers and their placement on the board. You look at your strength. It is what determines which way to go. Your competence in chess depends on how you can strategically use your officers to gain an upper hand. That was the core of Professor Ike’s message. The need to look inwards and use your comparable strengths to your advantage. He used the Biafran imagery because it was something his Igbo people could identify with.

The Biafran spirit is a can do spirit. It was the spirit that came to the fore during the unfortunate civil war. Sweet they say, are the uses of adversity. Left with little money and little resources, the people surprised even themselves. They had few vehicles, they made more. They had few guns, they made more. They ran out of fuel, they refined their fuel. There were even accounts, largely unsubstantiated, that they had started making rockets and bombs. This was about 50 years ago. You can imagine if they had continued at that pace after the war. That is the spirit Professor Ike was trying to evoke.

First, for Anambra State where he comes from, then the entire South-East. That is the spirit I am trying to evoke for the rest of the country. Look inwards. Stop depending on the centre in the case of the federating units. And stop looking to Europe in the case of the centre. That was in part, the message that won Donald trump the election. He might have been uncouth, bare knuckled and downright insulting about it. He might have couched it in a way that sounded racist and xenophobic. But he connected with people who felt marginalised in their own country.

He connected with people who felt US jobs were going out to other countries and with it the competitive advantage of the country. The whole world is afraid of the Trump presidency for many reasons. A lot of them are valid because the world has come to accept the leadership and a certain measure of stability that US brings to the world. I am afraid too. But the issue of immigration scares me the least. Heavens won’t fall if he makes it harder for Nigerians to come to the US. It might even be a blessing. Our people should stop emigrating from home and learn to make something of their country.

Our politicians and government officials should stop ferrying looted money to Europe and learn to re-invest it in their country. Our leaders should trust and use home-made resources whenever possible. Looking inwards means encouraging the production of local gin instead of declaring it illegal. Nothing says alcohol has to come from grape or barley. If it can come from palmwine or kola nut, fine.

Elsewhere, local alcohol is promoted as a tourist attraction, not banned. And I still can’t get the logic behind destroying small refineries at the creeks when our refineries are not working. Why not organise them and give them templates they can work with. That way, we’ll create cottage industries and find jobs for the youths. Our dependence on European standards in everything is destroying local initiatives. Lagos, Ogun, Abia and Kebbi states seem poised to develop their respective areas of strengths.

But they are works in progress at best. I know people who want to invest heavily in Lagos and Ogun States for example who are being frustrated by bureaucratic bottle necks and nonchalant officials. One, a secondary school mate of Ambode, has his foreign backers in place, his technical partners in place. It is a big project that should transform a rural area. All he wants is the co-operation of the state which as at today, is not forthcoming despite all the talks of Lagos being an investment friendly State. I know someone who wants to—with his backers—invest massively in housing nationwide and finds the minister in charge uncooperative.

One way of shaking off the insults that Trump was alleged to have heaped on Nigeria and Africa is to show that we can on our own, come up with the goods. Whichever way you look at it, the Trump presidency will present an enormous challenge for Africa.

TPL 042

Featured Image

The Twitter Premier League (TPL), an alternative league with players recruited from Twitter, is gearing up to return to Enugu, the home of Rangers International (the reigning Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) Champions, this month for the second edition of the amateur/semi-professional football league.

The maiden out-of-Lagos TPL, tagged #TPL042, symbolizing the phone dial code of Enugu, was held on March 19th 2016 at UNEC Temporary Stadium, Enugu with four teams, representing 4 major areas in Enugu Metropolis, fighting for the coveted trophy.

These teams include @OtigbaFC (New Haven), @ConneFC (GRA), @OringoFC (Trans Ekulu) and @FCBisala (Independence Layout).
Eventually, FC Bisalla emerged as the winners after beating Otigba FC in the final tagged #8HoursDerby via a penalty shoot-out. The event, which attracted players and fans from all parts of the city, was an overwhelming success and had over 700 people in attendance.

Based on popular demand, the #TPL042 organisers have decided to introduce the league format, in contrast to the straight knock-out format used in the maiden edition, and thence increased the number of teams to eight (8) to enable teams/players from other areas in Enugu Metropolis to participate. The new teams are @ZooAthleticFC, @HeroesFC (both GRA), @SoccerssimoFC (Abakpa) and @Umu-AliFC (Achara Layout).

The eight (8) teams have since been grouped into two. Defending Champions, FC Bisalla are top seeds in Group A and will start the defence of their title against one of the new boys, Soccerssimo FC. Oringo FC and Umu-Ali FC complete the group. Losing finalists, Otigba FC will lock horns with the three clubs from GRA, ConneFC, Zoo Athletic FC and Hereoes FC in Group B.

The teams in each group will play against each other between November 12th 2016 and November 26th 2016 at Adorable Pitch at Emene, with both the winners and runners-up of the groups advancing to the semi-finals and finals. The semi-finals & final, which are slated as the main event, will be held at UNEC Temporary Stadium on 10th December 2016. The day will also see the introduction of the new female football teams via an exhibition game. Radio power houses, Urban Radio and Dream FM, will also battle for the airwaves in a friendly.

Furthermore, the TPL is not just about the football; it is also a networking platform for youths to connect with each other, strengthen old bonds and foster new long-lasting friendships whilst promoting grassroot football. It also provides a wonderful opportunity for young entrepreneurs and SME owners to promote, market and sell their products and services.

In keeping with TPL tradition, there will be fantastic side attractions at the event such as dancers/cheerleaders, food and drink (palm wine, abacha with nkwobi, small chops etc) vendors, great music, video games, snooker, table tennis and card games. This is a great way to relax after an exhausting week at the office or school. It’s also a great way to support grassroot football and entrepreneurship in the City so don’t be left out, tell a friend to tell a friend.

It is #GameOn.

Mourinho’s Comments After Man United’s 1-1 Draw With Arsenal

Featured Image

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that the Red Devils are the unluckiest team in the Premier League.

Mourinho’s comment is coming after the Red Devils were stunned by a late Olivier Giroud goal in the 88th minute, which cancelled Juan Mata’s early strike and left Old Trafford in silence.

Mourinho’s side could have been awarded a penalty in the first-half after Nacho Monreal appeared to foul Antonio Valencia.

However, referee Andre Marriner ignored the appeals.

Speaking with Sky Sports, Mourinho said:

“Of course it is two points dropped. We were the best team by far. They had no chances to win.”

“They could not be Arsenal the way they normally play football. We were phenomenal defensively. The way we pressed and the way we controlled their counter attacks. Then when we had the ball we were very comfortable.

“We scored a fantastic goal, we had chances to win the game and then the only time they go there and the only time we had a situation we could not resolve they scored.

“They are the lucky ones and we are the unlucky ones.

“The team played very well. This team at the moment is the unluckiest team in the Premier League. That is the reality. The team is playing well.

“Phil Jones played more matches this season than the past three seasons I think. I don’t remember him playing two matches consecutively and big matches.

“I am happy with the work and the guys and I am super happy with the fans. They are amazing. They know to be fair and applaud a team that has dropped two points.”

On whether United should have had a penalty earlier in the game, he said:

“I don’t want to speak about it. I have a very good feeling with Andre Mariner. He is the kind of referee who if he make mistakes against my team there is no intention.

He doesn’t want to be the star of the game, he is a good referee. I don’t want to say if it is a mistake or not, I know because I saw the video, but I don’t want to say because he is a good referee.”

MMM Donates Relief Materials Worth N5M To IDPs

Featured Image

‘MMM-Nigeria’, a community of mutual financial aid and donations, on Saturday, donated relief materials worth N5 million to two Internally Displaced Persons camps in the Federal Capital Territory.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the gesture was part of the community’s humanitarian week tagged ‘MMM cares’ to mark its first anniversary.

The Gwoza and Bama IDP Camps located in Durumi area and the New Kuchingoro IDP camp were the two beneficiaries of the relief materials.

Bags of rice, beans, garri, as well as cartoons of beverages and noodles, were some of the items donated by the group.

The group also donated clothing, drugs, and educational materials to the pupils among them.

A Guilder in the ‘MMM Community’, Mr. Seyi Bello, said the donation was motivated by the desire  of the group to affect the society positively, especially the less-privileged.

He said, “We are marking our first year anniversary and we have decided to come and celebrate it with our brothers, mothers and children in the camp.

“As a community, we do not only provide help to our members, we also extend that to the larger society as part of our social responsibility.

“In these times of economic challenges, the IDPs are the ones that need help and support more than any other person; that is why we visited them today,” he said.

Bello explained that besides providing help and donations to its members, humanitarian service was a flagship programme of the group.

He said that the relief items were bought from free-will donations of members in their quest to touch lives positively.

He said, “The N5 million was raised from voluntary donations my members in the FCT.

“That is what defines us as a community of people providing financial help to each other on the principle of reciprocity and benevolence.

“In MMM there are no lenders and no debtors. One participant asks for help, another one helps.’’

Bello appealed to individuals, groups and corporate bodies to always remember the IDPs across Nigeria, since government alone would not be able to provide for them adequately.

He said, “They are our brothers and sisters who have left the comfort of their homes and are now struggling for survival here.

“No matter how little, let us always extend a hand of help to them to complement what government and other donors are doing.”

The General Secretary of the IDP camp at New Kuchingoro, Mr. Enoch Yohanna, who received the items, expressed gratitude for the gesture which he described as `timely.’

He said, “The Christmas season is very close; we thank MMM-Nigeria for bringing these items to us.

“We hope to share them satisfactorily among us for everybody to be happy and have a happy Christmas celebration.”

The visit to the IDPs camps was preceded by a two-hour environmental sanitation by members of the group on Nyanya/Mararaba route, a suburb of the FCT.

Members of the group came out in their numbers to clear garbage from drainage and streets in the area.

President Buhari Signs Eight Bills Into Law

Featured Image

President Muhammadu Buhari has signed eight bills passed by the national assembly into law.

The special adviser to the president on national assembly matters (senate), Ita Enang, made this known to state house correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Friday, November 18, 2016.

Enang revealed that the bills signed into law were: prevention of crime amendment Act,‎ 2016; the national crop varieties and livestock breeds (registration) amendment Act‎, 2016.

Others were telecommunications and postal offences amendment Act,‎ 2016; the national agricultural land development authority amendment Act‎ 2016; the produce enforcement of export standards amendment Act‎ 2016.

The president also signed the agricultural and rural management ‎training institute amendment Act‎ 2016; bee import control and management amendment Act‎ 2016, and water resources amendment Act‎ 2016‎.

Enang said the president expressed appreciation to the leadership and membership of national assembly, “for the great work they did in considering the bills and the details that have gone in to consider them”.

“Mr President considers the act as very vital to the present administration and in consonant with ‎All Progressive Congress’s agenda and thanked the national assembly,” he said.

He said the president also directed ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) and all government functionaries to always participate actively and make inputs when new bills were being considered.

Enang commended the president for assenting the eight bills at a time, saying “this is unprecedented because this is the very first time in this administration that eight bills are forwarded to him at a go for assent”.

“In all my years in the national assembly except for the 46 bills which were passed a day to the end of that administration, no such number of bills had been passed and forwarded at once ‎to the president for assent and no such number of bills had been assented to, at a record time,” he said.

“This shows that the executive and the legislature are working together because the ministers attended every hearing that was called in respect of the bills.”

Conte: Costa Has A Handle On His Temper

Featured Image

Chelsea gaffer, Antonio Conte is impressed with the fact that Diego Costa finally has a handle on his temper, after improving his disciplinary record.

The Spain international has been on four yellow cards since the 3-0 defeat to Arsenal, and has not picked up any warnings, which will lead to an immediate suspension.

Conte was initially worried about Costa’s flagrant temper when he joined the blues, with the forward receiving two yellows in the first two PL games, but he thinks that Costa has improved his temperament as well as other areas of his game, in recent weeks.

“Diego is showing he can control himself, It’s fantastic,” Conte said at a press conference at Cobham Training Centre. “Diego is improving a lot under a lot of aspects. For me now, Diego is one of the best strikers in the world.

“He must continue that, working in this way, with his commitment and work-rate. It’s fantastic to see his work during the games, but also in training.”

Costa is the Premier League’s top goalscorer with nine goals in his first 11 league games of the season while his three assists also mean that he has been involved in more goals than any other player, so far this season.

Conte credited Costa’s work rate as setting the standard for the rest of the Chelsea squad, as they aim to continue their run of five wins against Middlesbrough on Sunday at the Riverside Stadium.

“Diego is a very good player. The same for Eden. It’s important for me, for their team-mates, to see that in every game, Diego works a lot with the ball and without the ball. He’s an example for all. And I want to continue this way.

“If he continues to score, I’ll be very happy. But I’ll be happier to see this commitment, this work-rate during training and in games, to work with the team with and without the ball.

“If all the players are able to think in this way, it’s fantastic and we’ll be a good team, a very tough team to play.”

Mourinho Slams Koeman’s Comments Over Depay’s Contract

Featured Image

Everton manager, Ronald Koeman has made his interest in Memphis Depay public knowledge and it is an action that has angered United gaffer, Jose Mourinho.

The former PSV manager has not made an impact since joining the Red Devils from the Netherlands outfit in the summer of 2015.

But despite his limited playing time, Mourinho was unhappy to learn of a rival boss talking about one of his players.

“I prefer not to make [such comments],” the manager explained in Friday’s press conference.

“I think my normal answer is if somebody asks me about a player from another team, my answer is the player is not my player.

“The player belongs to another team, the player belongs to another manager, no comments at all. I think that is the ethical answer, when we are always worried about ethics, respect and rules.

“I just say that if it was me making those comments about an Everton player, I would be in trouble.”

The 22-year-old forward has netted just seven times in 55 appearances for United in all competitions and is yet to find the net in the 2016-17 campaign.

Klopp Rues Not Signing Mané For Dortmund

Featured Image

Former Dortmund manager, Jurgen Klopp has admitted he missed out on signing Sadio Mané in his time at the club.

The Liverpool manager was in the position to bring the forward from RB Salzburg in 2014, before he signed for Southampton.

Instead, Klopp ended up sanctioning a £34 million move to acquire the Senegal international at his new club and says he did not hesitate the second time around.

“With Sadio it was pretty simple because I made the mistake at Dortmund where I didn’t take him,” Klopp told reporters.

“We talked. I think everyone knows we met each other and by the end I didn’t feel this [claps hands together].

“Around about three months later I would have punched myself so I knew already that the next chance I had I would take it. So it was not difficult to take this decision, it was very easy.

“When the club came and when Michael Edwards [Liverpool’s new sporting director] said we have an opportunity, no talks were necessary anymore. It was a case of ‘let’s do it’.”

Mane returns to St Mary’s on Saturday as Liverpool visit Southampton looking to extend their 12-match unbeaten run in all competitions.

“I don’t know why I didn’t sign him before,” Klopp continued. “I like the player, it was more of a feeling.

“At Dortmund we could only get one player for this position, not two or three, so it needed to be exactly the right fit in this moment.

“I’ve said a lot of times, I’m not a genius and I couldn’t exactly imagine where he was in terms of playing in the Austrian league and what does the Austrian league mean for the football [at Dortmund]?

“I have made more mistakes in my life like this but he would have been more expensive if we had taken him to Dortmund and then he had been sold to Liverpool, so all good for Liverpool.

“The more I think about it, that was my first Liverpool decision. Nice.”
