2019: Former CBN Chief, Moghalu, To Run For Presidency

Featured Image

A former Deputy Governor of the CBN, Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, announced on Monday that he was consulting widely to run for the presidency in 2019.

Moghalu told political correspondents in Lagos that time had come for technocrats, intellectuals and experienced people to take power from Nigeria’s career politicians.

He said that he would not be deterred from joining the race, in spite of speculations that 2023 was the year slated for Igbos to have a shot at the presidency.

Moghalu argued that politics in Nigeria should be detribalised for Africa’s most populous nation to grow and take its rightful place in the comity of nations.

`It is the turn of any competent Nigerian to aspire for the post of presidency because career politicians have failed Nigeria.’’

He said that zoning, which had been used by the major political parties, might have been relevant in the past but that it was no longer necessary because competence should be placed above tribe in present day Nigeria.

“Zoning was an internal arrangement by political parties that was not constitutional. It should no longer matter where the president comes from.

“The future of Nigeria rests in technocratic interventions. We need thinking people that will take Nigeria from the politics of stomach infrastructure to politics of mental infrastructure.’’

The former CBN chief said that the first part to progress for Nigeria was for the people to begin to think differently and beyond tribe in choosing those who would lead them.

Speaking on a second term for President Muhammadu Buhari, Moghalu said that the president had constitutional rights to seek re-election.

“I don’t fathom how anyone can say the president should not run for a second term. It is his choice, the decision on who becomes Nigeria’s president in 2019 rests with Nigerians.‘’

Gareth Bale Worth As Much As Neymar, Claims His Agent

Featured Image

Gareth Bale’s agent believes that it will take a world-record fee to prise his client away from Real Madrid

Gareth Bale has been consistently linked with a move back to the Premier League in recent transfer windows, with Manchester United often cited as the most likely destination should he leave the Spanish capital.

However, agent Jonathan Barnett insists that the Welshman is “very happy” at Madrid and stressed that his future does not depend on that of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has also been linked with a move away this summer.

“He’s worth at least the €222m (£200m) paid for Neymar. Gareth is very happy with Real Madrid. He loves Madrid,” Barnett told Tuttosport.

“Gareth doesn’t need Cristiano Ronaldo to leave. Bale is already a star at Real Madrid. I remember the pen Florentino Perez gave me, he’s a great gentleman, I always carry it with me.

“Bale was close to signing for an Italian club, but Spurs didn’t accept the offer.”He’s happy in Madrid now, although things can change quickly in football, however I know that no Italian club can afford to buy him at this point.”

Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic has insisted that he has no regrets over turning down moves to Tottenham and Arsenal earlier in his career.

On Spurs, he added: “There was the opportunity but at that moment I told them I was happy where I was and that’s why we didn’t sign the deal. But I made my choice using my head and if I made that choice not to go to an English team it was for good reasons.”

Phil Neville Believes Phil Jones And Chris Smalling Are A “Disaster”

Former Manchester United defender Phil Neville has branded Phil Jones and Chris Smalling as a “disaster” pairing for the club

Phil Jones conceded a calamitous own goal during a recent defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, while Smalling was penalised for diving against Newcastle United on Sunday, with the Magpies going on to score the winning goal from the resulting free kick.

“They have got the best defensive record because they have the best goalkeeper in the world in David de Gea and Matic out in front who protects them really well,” Neville told BBC Sport.

“But the last two away games, Smalling and Jones have been a disaster. Against Dele Alli and Harry Kane, they got bullied. Against Newcastle did they make many mistakes, no, but they created a nervousness and a tension.

“They were making decisions that were strange. They were making decisions all day where you were thinking: ‘What are you doing?’”

Riyad Mahrez Going AWOL After Failed Manchester City Move Was A Mistake- Claude Puel

Featured Image

Leicester boss Claude Puel has described Riyad Mahrez’s self-imposed exile from the club after a Deadline Day move to Manchester City failed to materialise as a “mistake”.

Riyad Mahrez subject of a £60m offer from Pep Guardiola’s side, returned to training on Friday for the first time since he handed in a transfer request on the penultimate day of the January transfer window.

“I think since the beginning of the situation it was tough to manage, but all the time we kept united about this situation and about Riyad,” Puel was quoted by the Leicester Mercury.

“That was the most important thing. Sometimes some players can make a mistake. It was the first time for him and it was a mistake but the most important thing is to look forward and put it right.

“He is fantastic player for us, his team-mates and the fans. It is a pleasure to watch him… It is important we continue together.”

Mahrez released a statement which described assumptions about his absence as “completely untrue” and said his club were always aware of his whereabouts.

“Over the past 10 days, many people claiming to be my friend have spoken about me and things they know nothing about,” read the statement.

Off the back of that, many people and journalists have made assumptions without properly checking the story, so I would like to clarify that all those so-called assumptions of why I was absent are completely untrue.

“Myself nor my advisers have ever made any statements about that, so all presumptions made are totally without foundation.

“Leicester City were always aware of my whereabouts and had knowledge of my thinking either directly or via my advisers.

I have been a part of the Leicester City team that has achieved much success including promotion to the Premier League and being champions of the league.

“My goals have always been the same and I have always given my full 100 per cent when I play for the club, the fans, and my team-mates.

“Those goals remain the same today and in the future and, when I am asked to be a part of the Leicester team, rest assured I will continue to give my all.”

Max Meyer, 22, is contracted to Schalke until June 30 2018, meaning he will be available on a free at the end of the season.

“Max is very happy here, Schalke is his home, we will try to make it him as comfortable financially as possible.

He is playing the best season of his life, and the coach has found a position for him that Max didn’t believe he could play.

Dani Ceballos joined Real from Betis last summer, but has managed less than 700 minutes of action this season under Zinedine Zidane.

“I spoke with him [Ceballos]. Before and during the process in which he spoke about the possibility of coming here. He wanted to return to Betis. He always said that, if the moment came to possibly leave Real Madrid, it would be to return to Betis, to his home,” he told ABC.

Wojciech Szczesny Has No Problem With Gianluigi Buffon Staying Longer At Juventus

Featured Image

The agent of former Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny insists his client will have no problem with Juventus if they offer Gianluigi Buffon a new deal.

The 40-year-old’s current contract is due to expire at the end of this season, but reports are growing that he will stay for one more year.

That would mean Szczesny, who joined Juve last summer for £10m from Arsenal, would face another season of battling to be the club’s No 1.

Understandably the 27-year-old is keen for regular action but his agent, Jonathan Barnett, says there would be no issues if Buffon opted to stay for another year.

“Szczesny loves Juventus and the fans, and he has an extraordinary relationship with Buffon,” Barnett told Tuttosport.

“If he renews, it’s no problem for us. Juventus did an incredible deal to buy Szczesny at that price. They were good and quick in understanding his enormous potential before everyone.

“Wojciech will become one of the best goalkeepers in the world, just you watch.”

Experts Reveals Why Men Should Stop Using Tramadol For ‘Highness, Delayed Ejaculation’

Featured Image

A Consultant Pharmacist, Dr Clever Okeke, has warned that the use of Tramadol for “highness” or delayed ejaculation during love making could lead to depression and irrational behaviour.

The pharmacist further revealed that even though Tramadol is meant for the treatment of severe pains, it is sometimes abused because of the euphoric feeling that comes with its use.

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the health expert said:

“Tramadol belongs to a group of analgesics called Opioid Analgesics. It is the lowest in the class of cocaine.

“It has a very strong analgesic effect which is used for strong or severe pains.

“But you find that because of the opioid effect- the euphoric effect- which is one of the side effects, it makes the user feel high.

“The pain goes away but the euphoria remains.”

Okeke disclosed that some users may be tempted to seek out the drug after the completion of treatment because of the ‘good’ feeling experienced while using it to kill pains.

According to the pharmacist, the recommended dose of Tramadol is 50mg to 100mg with a maximum of 200mg in severe cases.

“Anything above 200mg will cause a massive euphoric effect,’’ he added.

Okeke, however, noted that because cocaine was not easily accessed, some people resort to using an overdose of Tramadol to get the desired ‘high’ effect.

“Getting high or achieving delayed ejaculation cannot be gotten with the recommended dose,’’ he added.

NAN quoted him as warning that high doses could cause convulsions and seizures.

Lagos Issues 24-Hour Quit Notice To Oshodi-Mile 2 Illegal Traders

Featured Image

The Lagos State Government has issued a 24-hour quit notice to all furniture traders on road setbacks and walkways from Oshodi to Mile 2 area, urging them to vacate the premises.

Speaking on Sunday on the quit notice, Chairman of the Lagos State Task Force Superintendent of Police, Olayinka Egbeyemi, said that the state government issued the ultimatum due to the environmental nuisance being constituted by the traders.

He said no responsible and responsive government would tolerate heavy environmental degradation being perpetuated by illegal traders around that axis.

He said: “Illegal shanties constructed by these illegal traders who specialise on new/fairly used furniture along Oshodi to Mile 2 Expressway, particularly, around ‘Itire’ and ‘Ijesha’ area have now become an abode for criminals.

“Residents around these areas could no longer sleep with their two eyes closed because of criminal activities being perpetuated by some miscreants and hoodlums who pretend to be new/fairly used furniture traders around Itire and Ijesha axis.”

Egbeyemi also warned residents living around Oshodi to Mile 2 areas to desists from dumping refuse on the median, road setbacks and walkways.

He said the warning became imperative as anyone caught dumping refuse at un-designated spots would be charge to court for prosecution.

Buhari Meets With Service Chiefs Days After Herdsmen Beheaded Elderly Farmer

Featured Image

President Muhammadu Buhari is presently in a meeting with the nation’s Service Chiefs at the presidential villa, Abuja.

The meeting is also being attended by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, the Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), as well as the Comptroller General of Immigration.

Although, the media is yet to be fed with the agenda of the meeting, it is understood that it might not be unrelated to the current security challenges facing the country.

Buhari’s government has recently come under intense criticism following killings by suspected Fulani herdsmen in some parts of the country.

During the weekend, some suspected Fulani herdsmen beheaded an elderly farmer identified as Mustapha, alias Bebe Jeje, in his farm at Iseyin, Oyo State.

Speaking with Vanguard about the incident, the President-General of Agbekoyas Worldwide, Kamoru Okiki Aremu, said the herdsmen also injured the farmer’s son who was with him on the farm, destroying further the crops in his farm.

His words: ”We are grieving. These herdsmen went to Baba Jeje’s farm, beheaded him and also injured his son who was with him.

”We have had enough of these herdsmen; we are Agbekoyas and we don’t look for trouble. But for this that had just happened, we have sent all our members to comb the bushes for any herdsmen and deal decisively with them.

”If the federal government and Governor Ajimobi fail to bring these people to justice, we are going to handle them in our own way. We are not afraid of anybody.”

Hundreds Of Boko Haram Suspects To Know Their Fate As Nigeria Begins Mass Trial

Featured Image

Hundreds of Boko Haram suspects were due back in court Monday to hear if they will be prosecuted, sentenced or released, as proceedings resumed at a military base in central Nigeria.

The first major prosecutions of people arrested during the insurgency began last October, involving 1,669 suspects held at the facility in Kainji, Niger state.

The justice ministry has said 468 were released after it was found they had no case to answer; 45 were sentenced to between two and 15 years in jail; and 28 had their cases transferred.

A further 82 pleaded guilty in exchange for a lesser prison sentence or release taking into account time served in custody.

The remainder have had their cases adjourned pending further investigations.

Nigeria’s government banned the media and public from attending the trials, leading to criticism from the UN and human rights groups.

But the justice ministry said the second phase of proceedings would now be open to some civil society groups, including human rights organisations and the media.

Nigeria’s military has been accused of arbitrarily arresting civilians and holding them for years on end without access to lawyers.

Conditions have been described as overcrowded and unsanitary, while detainees have allegedly been tortured, died from illness or disease or were summarily executed.

Nearly nine years of conflict have left at least 20,000 dead and forced 2.6 million others from their homes, triggering a humanitarian crisis across the region.

Nigerians With Property In UK Crash VAIDS Phone Lines – Panic Over New Law

Featured Image

Nigerians, who own property in the United Kingdom on Friday crashed the hotlines of the Voluntary Assets and Income Declaration Scheme (VAIDS) of the Federal Ministry of Finance with their incessant calls as they seek to inquire about how the new UK government Unexplained Wealth Orders, UWOs would affect their property in that country.

A highly placed source at the VAIDs office told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday that the unprecedented level of calls was not unconnected with the new UK regulation on Unexplained Wealth Orders (UWOs).

The source who pleaded not to be mentioned disclosed that the VAIDs office have been receiving massive calls and frantic requests from taxpayers based in the UK in the last 72 hours, asking for extension of time to enable them complete their VAIDS declaration forms.

The UK Government had last week introduced a new law that requires foreigners who own properties in the country to explain the source of their funds or risk forfeiting them to the government.

According to the new law, the UWOs could be obtained on any property or combination of properties valued at 50,000 pounds ( N25 million) or more, for which the owner is unable to explain a legal source of its funding.

The source said the data already in the possession of the VAIDS office in the Federal Ministry of Finance revealed that many UK property owners had underpaid their taxes before transferring funds overseas to buy properties.

“Concerted efforts are ongoing to restore the hotlines following the crash last Friday.

 “Most of the calls received are from high net worth individuals, including company executives, bankers and even a governor.

 “All seem to be in panic over the prospect of losing their investments,” said the source within the VAIDS Office.

PDP Reacts As APC Candidates Win All 44 Seats In Kano Local Government Polls

Featured Image

The Kano State Independent Electoral Commission (KANSIEC) on Sunday declared All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the state’s local government election held on Saturday.

The results were declared at a press conference at KANSIEC Headquarters on Sunday by the Chairman of the commission, Prof. Garba Ibrahim Sheka.

According to him, the ruling APC swept all the 44 chairmanship and 484 councillorship seats.

He also disclosed that security reports received during and after the council poll showed that election was peaceful as no violence was recorded or arrest made during the exercise.

Sheka said that 25 political parties, including the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which featured one chairmanship candidate, participated in the election.

While acknowledging that there were few challenges during the exercise, he, however, dismissed allegations of malpractices, insisting that the poll was free and fair.

Accepting that there was delay in the commencement of the election in almost all the polling units, he attributed the shortcoming to the late arrival of sensitive materials, which he said were ordered from China.

Sheka affirmed the neutrality of KANSIEC, saying:” I will not hesitate to declare any other party winner if any candidate from other political parties had won the election because we are not against nor in favour of any particular party.”

But in a swift reaction yesterday, the PDP rejected the results of last Saturday’s House of Representatives’ bye-election in Katsina State and the local council election in Kano State in which the APC candidates emerged victorious.

The PDP, however, urged its members in the two states to remain calm as it takes decisive but legitimate steps to reclaim their stolen mandate.

The Kano State Independent Electoral Commission (KANSIEC) on Sunday declared All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the state’s local government election held on Saturday.

The results were declared at a press conference at KANSIEC Headquarters on Sunday by the Chairman of the commission, Prof. Garba Ibrahim Sheka.

According to him, the ruling APC swept all the 44 chairmanship and 484 councillorship seats.

He also disclosed that security reports received during and after the council poll showed that election was peaceful as no violence was recorded or arrest made during the exercise.

Sheka said that 25 political parties, including the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which featured one chairmanship candidate, participated in the election.

While acknowledging that there were few challenges during the exercise, he, however, dismissed allegations of malpractices, insisting that the poll was free and fair.

Accepting that there was delay in the commencement of the election in almost all the polling units, he attributed the shortcoming to the late arrival of sensitive materials, which he said were ordered from China.

Sheka affirmed the neutrality of KANSIEC, saying:” I will not hesitate to declare any other party winner if any candidate from other political parties had won the election because we are not against nor in favour of any particular party.”
