Shettima Disagrees With FG, Says “Boko Haram Degraded, Not Totally Defeated”

Featured Image

Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State has spoken in contradiction to the federal government’s claims that Boko Haram has been defeated; even as he said that the group has only been degraded.

The governor made this known in Abuja during the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Profoturo, a global charity organisation based in Madrid, Spain; the Northern Nigeria Governors Forum (NNGF) and the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN).

Shettima, whose state was the hub of Boko Haram nefarious activities, argued that whoever said the terrorists were defeated was just being economical with the truth.

The governor further stated that even though Nigeria had made a lot of gains in the fight against insurgency, a lot still needed to be done.

His words: “We have to give it to this government that they have done marvelously well in containing insurgency, but they have not been totally defeated anybody. Who told you so is economical with the truth. But they have been degraded to such a level that they are no longer a threat to the corporate existence of this country.

“It is a work in progress, the commoners in the North are ever willing to cooperate with government agencies in returning peace and development of the country, because there cannot be development without peace.”

Brook Confirms Another Broken Eye Socket

Featured Image

Kell Brook has confirmed he sustained a broken eye socket in his IBF welterweight title fight loss to Errol Spence Jr on Saturday.

Brook went on his knees in the penultimate round, with his left eye causing him a lot of distress, before the referee callrd a hakt to the match.

The Special One’s other eye resulted in his defeat to Golovkin, and after his fight against Soence Jr, he was inflicted with the same injury.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, Brook said: “They kept me in until about 3am. I had a CT scan on my eye and the eye is broken again, same as the Golovkin one, so, maybe surgery again.

“I’m devastated. I knew from round seven that the eye had gone and progressively as the rounds went on. I tried to get through the fight and it kept going double vision and then coming back into line.

“In the later rounds 10 and 11, especially 11th round, it stuck there and that’s why I went down on one knee and I remember the surgeon saying to me after the Golovkin fight if you would have gone another round or so you could be blind so I’ve got that going through my mind as well.

“I’m in my own city, I’m in Sheffield. I wear my heart on my sleeve. There were many things going through my mind but I remember thinking I live to fight another day.”

“I think the time is now maybe to move up,” Brook added. “I’ve been making welterweight since I was a teenager. My first fight I was about nine or ten.

“I went up to middleweight in my last fight, I put a lot of muscle on and it was so hard to get to welterweight.”

Spence Jr Beats Brook To Win IBF Welterweight Belt

Featured Image

Errol Spence Jr inflicted Kell Brook’s second defeat of his career on Saturday, claiming the IBF welterweight belt in the process.

The unbeaten American inflicted damage on the special one to win in the penultimate round, leading the scores on all the judges scorecards.

Brook was left with a swollen left eye after the match, a mirror of his last defeat to Golovkin, where his second eye was damaged.

Spence Jr has been cool and calm throughout his one week stay in the UK, before the match, and started out with his trademark body shots from the opening bell.

Brook tried to bully and bulldoze his younger and less experienced opponent with his speed and even though his body shots were not obvious, they were ever present.

Spence Jr endured a difficult sixth round, but inflicted enough damage in the seventh round and it became obvious, as Brook’s eye started to swell.

The bell saved Brook in the ninth round, but a combo of body shots in the next round had the former IBF welterweight champion doubling over in pain.

But the injury to Brook’s left eye was too severe and, with Spence Jr given an obvious target, it was causing more and more problems. Brook was blinking worryingly, and he sunk to his knees before the referee saved him.

British Council And Polly Alakija Partner With Lagos State For The Rivers Of The World Art Exhibition

Featured Image

The official displaying of the Flying flotilla under the remodeled Falomo Bridge took place on Children’s day 27th of May.

The students transformed 6 canoes into beautiful works of art which represents their immediate surroundings, while under the supervision of the world renowned Polly Alakija.

The Flying flotilla has recently been selected to represent Nigeria as part of the Rivers of the world art exhibition which is to be showcased at the prestigious Thames festival. The “Rivers of the World” is the Thames Festival Trust’s flagship art and educational project delivered in partnership with the British Council.  It is an international arts education programme that works with schools across the world and young people aged 12 to 14 to help inspire, educate and connect them to their local river and waterfront.

Working with professional artists, the participants explore environmental, social, ecological and cultural aspects of their river and communities. They then create immense artwork inspired by their findings which help share their stories, ideas and hopes. Pupils at Akande Dahunsi Junior Memorial School, Grace High School Gbagada, Boys’ Junior Academy, New Hall International School Lekki, Lagos State Junior Model College and Daregoes Private School Ipaja had the rare privilege of working with the amazing Polly Alakija to produce the flying flotilla.

The Canoes will be displayed under the Falomo Bridge till August . After which, they will be displayed on the South Bank of the River Thames in London just outside the Tate modern gallery for three weeks as part of Totally Thames festival. The transportation of the Flying Flotilla to the Totally Thames festival will be sponsored by the Lagos state government as part of the Lagos @ 50 celebrations and this avails Lagos State an opportunity to showcase the creativity of children in the state to the world at large and also further establish Lagos State as one of the emerging tourist destinations in the world.

Ahmed Mohammed a Director from the British Council said, the British Council strives to create opportunities and build trust internationally and with our local communities. We offer engagement with school leaders and influential policy makers, educators and young people in Nigeria through our schools projects.

He also added that they have a range of school projects that have helped young people and educators demonstrate an increased capacity in the skills, understanding and outlook required to work in a global economy and contribute responsibly to society, locally and globally. This is critically reflected in the River of The World Project, we aim to support teachers as they continue to prepare young people to live and work in a dynamic, fast-changing and interconnected world.

Polly Alakija, who is currently the Chairperson of Arts and Culture in Lagos state, thanked the various ministries in the state for the opportunity to leave her mark in this public space. She urged other state governments to emulate the good work being carried out by the Lagos State government as the creative industry remains an untapped resource that can sustain the economy of Nigeria.  She also gave thanks to the several organizations like MTN Nigeria, Dangote Group and Kansai Plascon that partnered with her to ensure the event was a success.

In her address, she noted that the government alone cannot solve all the problems of Nigeria and also the creative industry needs support from the private sector as it is obtainable in developed countries.

Details of ransoms demanded from the remaining parents had yet to be ascertained while the others were reportedly told to meet with the school authorities and the state government to raise the money.

One of the parents of the abducted schoolchildren, who spoke to The Punch on condition of anonymity, said the kidnappers called between 3pm and 5pm on Saturday.

The parent said: “They allowed me to speak with my son. I asked him if he was fine and he said yes. They asked me to meet with the school authorities to raise N400m for my child to be released.”

Another parent of one of the pupils said they begged the kidnappers that they had only menial jobs when they demanded the same amount.

“I said N400m was much, but one of them told me not to worry myself. He said I should meet with the school authorities and the government. I was also allowed to speak with my child. I spoke with two other parents and they said they were asked to pay N100m each,” the parent said.

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, said the police had yet to be informed about the ransoms, adding that investigations were ongoing.

Nigeria Releases N54 Billion For Settlement Of Pension Liabilities

Featured Image

The Federal Government has released N54 billion for the settlement of inherited and current liabilities to retirees on the platform of the Contributory Pension Scheme.

This disclosure was made by the presidential spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, when he featured on an interactive radio programme, “Hannu Da Yawa” on the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, FRCN Kaduna.

The programme was part of activities to commemorate the second anniversary of the Buhari administration.

He also revealed that the Buhari administration had further directed that regular monthly remittances be made into the Retirement Benefits Bond Redemption Fund (RBBRF) with the Central Bank of Nigeria to ensure the continuity of timely payment of benefits to retirees.

According to him, under the Buhari administration, PTAD saved N5.7 billion through the efficient administration of the pensions of parastatals and universities.

“In addition, pension assets increased from N4.96 trillion in June 2015 to N6.42 trillion as at March, 2017, indicating a growth of over 29 percent.

“The government of President Muhammadu Buhari will continue to ensure the strengthening and accountability of PTAD,’’ the presidential spokesman assured.

Shehu, who is the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, said the Buhari administration had brought to an end the series of fraud and scandals around the issue of pensions in Nigeria.

He said that this feat was achieved by strengthening the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD), which had introduced a number of innovative measures over the past two years.

According to him, one of the measures is the automation of pension payment processes.

Shehu noted that the Bank Verification Number (BVN) policy had also been implemented in the pension scheme, with over 103,000 civil service pensioners verified.

“Pensioner records have also been digitalised for secure archiving, with thousands of thousands of old, physical pension folders converted to e-files.

“In addition, the government of President Buhari has enforced a new level of commitment to the welfare of pensioners and retirees, with the PTAD creating an automated and centrally administered complaints management process with a dedicated call centre that receives and treats over 200 calls on a daily basis,’’ he said.

He stated that in contrast to the past when a record number of pensioners died on queues trying to get their rights, “the new arrangement ensure that the pensioners are attended to with utmost care’’.

He added that the arrangement had also provided conducive atmosphere for verification, food and water as well as wheelchairs for those that have mobility challenges, adding that infirmed pensioners were verified at their home or hospital.

The Senior Special Assistant also claimed in the programme that the reform carried out by the administration in the National Drug Law Environment Agency (NDLEA), had brought “respect to Nigerian international travelers who now face less harassment at airports in other lands’’.

He revealed that under the present administration, the NDLEA had seized more than one million kilogrammes of various drugs, destroyed about 110,000 hectares of drug farms and arrested 17,000 suspected drugs dealers.

He announced that so far, about 5,000 persons had been convicted in the last two years.

Year 2019 And The Search For The Nigerian President

Year 2019 And The Search For The Nigerian President, By Majeed Dahiru

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

In a few days the Muhammadu Buhari administration will be two years old. following the historic elections that swept an incumbent president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan out of power and reduced the majority of the former ruling PDP to a minority in the National Assembly, Nigerians were fully mobilised for a change in approach to governance that would hopefully transform our collective misfortune to progress and prosperity.

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

Unfortunately, the mid-term score card of the first four-year mandate of the Muhammadu Buhari presidency, records a disappointingly low performance in most critical aspects of its core responsibilities of the security of lives and property, economic well-being of the citizenry and national unity. Under the current administration, the economy slipped into a debilitating recession, leading to a drastic reduction in the already poor standard of living of most Nigerians. As a direct result of the non-conciliatory posture of the victorious APC’s Muhammadu Buhari, following the defeat of PDP’s Goodluck Jonathan in the 2015 presidential election, which is expressed by his doctrine of a political scorched earth policy of rewarding only areas and peoples who voted for him (95 percent) and punishing areas and peoples who voted against him (five percent) and made real by his pattern of appointments and patronage, this has left the Nigerian nation as the most divided in its entire history as a sovereign nation.

This foregoing followed the pattern of voting in the 2015 presidential election, which was largely influenced by ethno-religious sentiments that saw the former President Goodluck Jonathan receiving massive support from the predominantly Christian population of his home region of South-South, and the closely ethno-geographically affiliated South-East region, while his main challenger and current President Muhammadu Buhari enjoyed the near total support of his predominantly Hausa-Fulani Muslim enclave of the North-West and the equally closely ethno-geographic Muslim population of the North-East region, thereby polarising the country into two extreme halves. The contest was tipped in favour of Muhammadu Buhari by the unbounded votes he received from significant sections of the Christian northern population of the central states, coupled with a slight majority of votes from the South-West. These were people already weary of the corruption-riddled government of the succeeding PDP administrations, and hence voted objectively for change as they were not affiliated to Buhari by tribe or religion but were drawn to him by his personal qualities of integrity, honesty and incorruptibility, which was bolstered a great deal by his consistent challenge of every incumbent PDP president in every election since 2003.

However, with the level of sectionalism witnessed under the current administration, it has become abundantly clear that the president owes his electoral success more to the support he had consistently received from the Muslim North but not the votes he obtained from other parts of the country, which made the difference in his electoral fortunes the last time. So far the president has largely implemented the original “Arewa agenda” that propelled his interest in partisan politics in the first instance, which led him to throw his hat into ring of contest to wrestle power from the South back to the North in 2003. Apparently, it was his devotion to this agenda that kept Muhammadu Buhari in the race and not his love for Nigeria, as previously widely believed. The negative consequences of this high level of sectionalism are largely responsible for the lack of progress in all aspects of national lives today.

Matters have been made worse by a corrupt and incapacitated political establishment, which controls the two major political parties, the APC and PDP. There appears to be no difference in approach to governance between the former ruling party and the current one. The same set of individuals who “destroyed Nigeria in sixteen years” now congregate in the ruling APC and holding forte in government at every level, from the top to the bottom. The more the APC blames the PDP, the more the former is looking and behaving like the latter. The current political establishment has become obsolete and is increasingly degenerating into political irrelevancy because it has failed to fulfil the promise of the economic dividends of democracy. The major preoccupation of the establishment is still power rotation and sharing of our national resources among the ruling elite, who because of their extreme comfort, are careless about the collective well-being of the citizens.

As 2019 approaches, Nigerians must begin to look beyond APC’s Muhammadu Buhari for good governance, progress and prosperity. The bar and standard of the quality of leadership must be raised above ethno-religious sentiments to pragmatic solutions to our problems as a nation. One lesson learnt is that the old order of power struggle, which is usually resolved by rotation and zoning of political offices leading to the institutionalisation of sectionalism in government business at every level, has not paid off the intended beneficiating sections of the country.

The original intention of power rotation, which was to ensure equitable distribution of resources and the even spread of development across the federating units, has unfortunately degenerated into a cesspool of corruption, resulting in an equitable distribution of loot among the ruling elite, cutting across all ethno-religious divides. For example, after six years of the “our son” presidency of Goodluck Jonathan, the fortunes of the Niger Delta region remains unchanged. He did not succeed in transforming the landscape of the polluted oil rich environment to a clean and safe place for his own people, neither did he significantly improve their socio-economic life. His developmental legacies in the Niger Delta are mostly of abandoned projects, including the vital East-West road. Similarly, the rate at which the Buhari presidency is underperforming, the enormous problems confronting the Northern region will largely remain unresolved. After his first four-year mandate and despite his sectionalism, the North will remain in the unenviable list of educationally disadvantaged regions.

His sectionalism will not improve the socio-economic fortunes of his North-West, which still ranks very low on the Human Development Index as one of the poorest regions in the entire world and hence the twin scourge of Al majiri and Boko Haram will remain with the North. Clearly, that a president comes from a section does not always guarantee benefit to the people. Therefore, the clamour for a northern presidency in 2019 by some regional groups is a recipe for retrogression.

There are no northern solutions to Northern Nigerian problems, neither are there southern solutions to Southern Nigerian problems. There is only a Nigerian solution to Nigerian problems, north or south, to be administered by a Nigerian president. The search must begin in earnest for a Nigerian president in 2019 – a president who will not be defined or limited by tribe, religion or region but by a broad based pan Nigerian agenda. Our next president must be a man who is not sectional in both his private or public life. The antecedents of our next president must be scrutinised to ensure his beliefs, association and personality exemplify a united pan Nigerian sentiment. The vital unifying tools of integration and assimilation of Nigerians into any society of their choice in any part of the country should be exemplified and promoted by the next president. In order to move ahead and catch up with the fast developing world, Nigeria should begin to exist more for economic reasons and cease being a waste land of negative politicking. We need a president who will drive the process of running Nigeria as a competitively profitable entity for both the government and citizens in the league of global competitive nations.

The agenda before the next president must set right by the citizens. To achieve rapid development, the next president must embark on a revolutionary educational reform, whose core principle will be to re-educate this current generation and educate the next to achieve political and economic development. One major objective of our educational system should be to produce Nigerians who are completely rid of the bias of ethno-religious mind-sets, with the necessary skills to contribute positively to the economic development of their fatherland.

No nation on earth is blessed with abundant human and natural resources, least of all Nigeria. Nigeria, like other prosperous nations, must necessary look beyond its borders for extra sources of income by tapping into the natural resources, markets for finished goods and quality human resources of other nations to shore up our own. Nigeria’s economy must begin to shift from a dependency on Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) to becoming a major player in global trade as an Overseas Investor Nation, beginning with the domination of trade in the West Africa sub-region. Therefore, to achieve these objectives seamlessly, the next president should be a visionary leader who is knowledgeably equipped enough to properly articulate for Nigeria, workable foreign, immigration and defence policies aimed at negotiating and getting a sizable chunk of global resources through bilateral/multilateral trade agreements. The discourse on the next president of Nigeria continues.

Allegri Looking To Win UCL To End Beautiful Season

Massimiliano Allegri is hoping to finish the beautiful season, after they ended the Serie A season with a 2-1 win over Bologna, with winning the UCL.

The Bianconeri came from a goal down to win 2-1, with Dybala equalising and Kean scoring the winner in the death, with his first goal.

And even though Allegri praised the young Juve squad, the final against Real Madrid wasn’t far from his mind.

“The season, right now, is beautiful,” he told Mediaset Premium . “We have Cardiff and, from Monday, we will prepare only to win.

“It’s beautiful to note the games of Kean and [20-year-old goalkeeper Emil] Audero. There are other good guys, who will play next year. The team did well and we woke up after the goal.

“The first time we went [to the Champions League final against Barcelona in 2015] with a gentle pace. We will go to Cardiff with serenity, which is how finals are won.

“It will be a fascinating game against an extraordinary team. We have to play with confidence – it is an important match that does not happen every year.

“We will play the second after three great seasons, thanks to the boys and the club. It takes enthusiasm [to win] but also serenity.”
