The game, in preparation for the Russia 2018 World Cup, was played in Krasnodar, Russia.

360Download: TnJ – Hip Praise Hop Worship (EP)

Featured Image

Once in a while, someone comes along to change the status quo. He or she redefines what it means to do things a certain way. In so doing, they become a phenomenon, finding their shtick in the process of creating something innovative.

Meet the creator; “TnJ aka The Gem King”, and the creation; the HIP PRAISE HOP WORSHIP (EP) project. A body of work that dares to merge the culture that is Hip Hop with church styled praise & worship, while exploring a variety of sounds in the process through Afro-HipHop/Rap.

TnJ is a bachelors degree holder of Industrial Physics (University of Benin), a Kingdom Warri Boy with the adequate charisma & excellent expertise to wield rap as a weapon of mass creation. TnJeezy has shown that he possesses enough confidence & with immense creativity, the ability to experiment with the Hip Hop genre while dabbling a bit into other genres like Afro-pop & soft rock. The end result of such a bold move – The HPHW EP.

Oghenetega ‘TnJ’ Oke who hails from Delta State, Nigeria, is an artiste very proud of his roots and has teased us in the past with singles off this EP such as ‘Oghene Is In The Matter’ and ”Merciful King’.’ In these last couple of months, these singles have stirred up an army of listeners and they are in for a treat with this EP.

The Gem King has defiled all limitations and broken boundaries with this project. He has gone where others have not dared to reach. This EP addresses a lot of issues faced by (Nigerian) Christian Hip Hop as we see the creator refusing to hold back. The Hip Praise Hop Worship EP has a mainstream appeal & even touches on subjects like love; and I’m talking about the romantic kind.

The seven-tracker EP with a bonus single, sets a new pace for the music industry as a whole, as the HPHW EP feels like an experience. The creator (TnJ) finds a way to consistently exalt his own creator (God) throughout the EP. TnJ’s motive behind this EP in summary, is nothing but a simple yet prodding question; “Who said Hip Hop belongs only in the streets and who has restricted Praise & Worship to just within the church?”

As a sign of good faith, TnJ releases a song off the EP titled JARA for free download. He says it’s his own way of adding a little ‘jara (extra)’ to the mix. The HPHW EP is a breath of fresh air, just don’t forget to exhale.

Wenger: I Can Manage A National Team

Featured Image

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger says it is possible he could branch into national management, when he leaves Arsenal.

Wenger is the longest serving manager in the EPL, having managed Arsenal since 1996, but has been under pressure in the past months.

Arsenal are currently sixth on the table, 12 points behind City, and face Tottenham this weekend.

“Maybe, yes, I will do it at some stage but until now I like to be involved every day, in the life of the club because the real test is there,” he said.

“Four or five weeks, it’s a different experience, it’s more concentrated. But I believe the real experience to manage a team is on a daily basis but I will not always have the physical strength to do that so maybe I will move into that.

When asked if the opportunity interested him, he replied: “Yes of course. I haven’t decided that, it is just a fact that my life is linked with football, it will be linked with my physical state but until the end of my life I will be in football.

“I don’t know in what kind of position, as a director, as a manager. For as long as possible as a manager but one day that will stop. I will stay in football of course.”

Buhari Directs Nigerian Military To Stop Admission Of Combatant Female Cadets Into NDA

Featured Image

President Muhammadu Buhari has ratified the National Defence Policy 2017 (Revised); Harmonised Terms and Conditions of Service Officers 2017, which is set to put an end to the admission of female cadets into the combatant course of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA).

It would be recalled, a set of 20 females, nicknamed Jonathan Queens, were first admitted into the course in Nigeria’s premier military officer training institution during the former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration in 2011.

However, it was learnt that the recommendation to end the programme was made by the Armed Forces Council which was inaugurated by the President last week.

Recommendation 19 of the Harmonised Terms and Conditions of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, which was sighted by The Punch on Sunday, read:

“Phase out the training of female regular combatant cadets.”

Speaking to the news outfit on the development, a serving general in the Nigerian Army disclosed that the military took the decision due to complaints from some unnamed northern Muslim leaders.

The general, who pleaded anonymity because he was not authorised to speak on the issue, explained that there were various types of commissions in the Armed Forces namely: Regular Combatant Commission, Short Service Combatant Commission, Direct Regular Commission, Direct Short Service and Executive Commission.

He said, “It is only the Regular Combatant Commission that can give an officer the opportunity to aspire to head any of the services or rise to become the Chief of Defence Staff, while the others have limited career path. If the military is able to scrap this programme, women will never be able to head any of the arms of the Nigerian military.

“The northern Muslim leaders want to prevent a situation where one day, a woman will lead the army and give orders to men.” “When we started the training of female cadets in 2011, we never thought it would be successful. When the first set of women cadets graduated from the academy last year, women won three awards, including the best award in the navy category.

“A female cadet, C. Lord-Mallam, won the Navy Gold award which is the highest in the navy category. The Army Silver award, which is the second highest in the army, went to a female cadet, K. O Dayo-Karim. The Air Force Silver award was also won by a female cadet, O. S Ijelu.

“However, some northern conservatives were not happy about it because most of the female cadets are either Christians from the South and northern minority groups or Muslims from the South and Middle Belt.

“Dissatisfied with how things are turning out, the northern Muslim leaders lobbied the military authorities to stop the programme for women.”

Ikoyi N13Bn: Whistle-Blower Will Go Mad If We Pay Him N860M At Once – FG

Featured Image

The Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), has said that the Federal Government does not want the whistle-blower who informed the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of the N13bn in an Ikoyi apartment to run mad.

That, according to Sagay, is why the federal government is hesitant to pay the whistle-blower his N860 million reward.

The whistleblower had in April tipped off the EFCC of funds stashed in a four-bedroom apartment on Osborne Towers, Ikoyi, Lagos.

The anti-graft agency had discovered $43 million, £27,800 and N23 million in the flat bought in the name of the wife of Ayo Oke, the sacked director-general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).

Reacting to the alarm raised by the whistleblower’s lawyer on the delay in paying his client’s reward, Sagay said the man will “almost run mental” if the money is paid to him without proper measures.

He said, “What I gathered from my inquiry is that the man is not sufficiently stable to receive such a huge sum of money. He is like someone who will almost run mental when he gets the money and will use it in an irresponsible manner, attracting not only undesirable people but even danger to himself.

“I think what they wanted to do for him was to provide counsellors. Not just counsellors for character and mental situation but counsellors who would be like consultants that would help him to really invest the money and plan in such a way that he doesn’t throw it away in five minutes.

“They are trying to help him. Nobody is denying him anything. They are trying to help him but he just misunderstands the intention and like everyone that has been deprived for a long time, he is so desperate to have it but from what I can see, if they just give him everything, it won’t last more than a month or two because so many people will start finding ways to get to him and taking their portions from him. So, they were just trying to help him but he became hysterical.”

Sagay told The Punch that the Federal Government has decided to pay the whistle-blower in tranches, adding that such a method of payment would deter him from spending it all at once.

He added, “It is better to pay him in tranches. I agree with the government because if not, he will throw it away. This is valuable money that government could have used for millions of unemployed and wretchedly poor people.

“One man is getting it and he just wants it so that he can blow it all in five minutes? No, the government has a responsibility to see that his excitement does not end in seeing the money being thrown away irresponsibly. So, I agree with the government.”

Governor Umahi Bars Party Logos, Symbols As Buhari Visits Ebonyi

Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has barred party logos and symbols during the official visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to the State beginning from Today, November 14.

David Umahi: PDP Governor Endorses Buhari For Second Term In 2019

In his address to newsmen on the eve of the State Visit, Governor Umahi said the decision was to give respect to the president.

He said: “Nobody should come to the stadium with any party logo. We don’t want to embarrass the president. If we invite the president for a state visit and PDP rolls out their logo, it is an embarrassment to Mr President.

“It is a Presidential visit; no party is coming to the stadium with a logo or party slogan of anything. It is just a simple Presidential visit. If they don’t understand they should go and find out what a Presidential visit is and what it entails.”

The declaration comes on a day the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) threatened President Buhari against his planned visit to the South East, saying there will be bloodshed.

Except for any last minute change of plans, Buhari is scheduled to visit Ebonyi through Enugu on November 14, 2017 and Anambra on November 15.

However, the pro-Biafra group warned the president against the planned visit, saying that “Tuesday 14th November 2017 will be recorded in history as a very bloody day should that Jubril masquerading as Buhari attempt to land on Biafran soil.”

Kogi To Emulate Kaduna, Considers Competency Test For Teachers

Featured Image

There are strong indications that Kogi State may emulate Kaduna State by issuing a competency test for primary school teachers in the state.

It was gathered that a team from the state, led by the Commissioner, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Jacob Tolorunleke, is in Kaduna State to understudy the competency test recently conducted for primary school teachers in the state.

Buhari Endorses El-Rufai’s Plan To Sack 21,780 Teachers In Kaduna

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna on Monday, Tolorunleke said that the move was to improve the standard of education in Kogi State.

According to the commissioner, they are in the state to get all the necessary information needed, and to be guided appropriately on how to conduct a successful and credible competency test for teachers in Kogi State.

Tolorunleke said stakeholders had been discussing on ways to address the rot in the state’s education sector, particularly the quality of teachers.

“It was based on these discussions that the state’s executive council directed that I lead a delegation to Kaduna State to understudy the processes involved in carrying out a competency test for teachers.

“This is because addressing the rot in the education sector has been a lingering issue for us in Kogi State.

“Kaduna state has just provided an example for us to follow in achieving our mission and vision in the education sector.’’

Tolorunleke explained that after the study, the team would come up with recommendations, after which relevant stakeholders would be consulted on the way forward.

He commended the Kaduna State Government for taking the bull by the horn in addressing the dearth of quality teachers in its primary schools.

“This is because any state that failed to address the issue of quality education at basic level would not achieve much in secondary and tertiary schools.

“We had a fruitful discussion with the Permanent Secretary, Kaduna State Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, as well as the Executive Chairman of SUBEB in the state, Nasir Umar.

“They have given us the needed attention, they took us step by step through the processes and provided us with all the document we need to carry out a successful competency test in Kogi state.’’

Featured Image

Two Nigerian civil servants, Mohammed Audu and Yusuf Ayodeji, have been sentenced to 105 years imprisonment for fraudulent activities by a federal capital territory high court sitting in Jabi on Monday, November 13, 2017.

It was gathered that the convicts, who were procurement officers in the office of the accountant-general of the federation, were arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in July 2016.

While Audu was arraigned on a 10-count charge, Ayodeji faced a five-count charge, both bordering on conspiracy, abuse of office and awarding contracts to companies in which they had interests, among others.

The convicts were brought pursuant to section 26 of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) Act 2000, punishable under section 12 of the same Act.

They were in charge of a World Bank project known as Government Integrated Financial Management Information System (GIFMIS), an economic reform governance project.

In his judgment, Yusuf Halilu, the judge, sentenced Audu to seven years imprisonment on each of the 10-count charge, amounting to 70 years.

Halilu also sentenced Ayodeji to seven years each on each of the five-counts charge, amounting to 35 years imprisonment.

According to him, the convicts took advantage of their positions as procurement officers to perpetrate the criminal acts at the World Bank project.

De Rossi Announces His International Retirement

Daniele De Rossi has followed Barzagli and Buffon, announcing his retirement after Italy failed to qualify for the World Cup.

De Rossi, 34, finishes his Italy career with 117 caps and 21 goals since 2004. The Roma midfielder represented Italy at three World Cups, three European Championships and a Confederations Cup.

“We will begin again, just as we did after other desperately disappointing moments,” De Rossi said.

“I don’t believe we deserved to go out considering the 180 minutes. Sweden deserve credit for their performance, but it was fairly even.

“Now the next generation is ready to take flight and we must begin again from them. It was almost an absurd moment to associate with a football match. There was a funeral atmosphere in the locker room, yet nobody died.

“I’ve been wandering around Coverciano and all over the world with this jersey for over a decade, so to take it off for the last time is a strange feeling.”

Andrea Barzagli says Italy’s failure to qualify for the World Cup, is a big disappointment for him, as he announced his retirement.

The Azzurri failed to qualify for Russia, after playing a 0-0 draw against Sweden, losing 1-0 on aggregate.

Andrea Barzagli could not pick one thing that failed Italy, as they missed out on the World Cup for the first time in 60 years.

“In football terms, it’s the biggest disappointment of my life,” he told Rai Sport.

“The Italy side gives you unique sensations. It gives you goosebumps, creates friendships between all the Italy fans. It’s a real shame to end like this.

“I don’t know what we missed, all I know is we’re out of the World Cup, it’s a unique disappointment and leaving this group of lads is painful.

“Everyone has their own feelings, but it’s really hard to accept right now.”
