Non-Academic Staff Strike: Reps Probe N23 Billion Disbursement To ASUU

Members of the union were directed to resume work immediately marking an end to the strike which was embarked upon by the union since December 2017.

“The union embarked on the strike action on December 4, 2017. This is the 4th month and up till now, the strike has lost direction, it has lost focus. The government is not inviting the union, most universities are in session, academic activities are in progress. And so, we felt the best we could do is to call on our members to resume work immediately.

“This idea was muted by the congress and it was unanimously adopted. On this note, the SSANU members have been directed by the congress of SSANU, Ahmadu Bello University chapter to resume work with immediate effect,” Bello said.

The SSANU members also expressed anger over the purported expulsion of their chapter chairman and resolved that, the letter of expulsion issued to their chairman, Ilyas Abdulrauf Bello was null, void and of no effect.

Astori Autopsy Reveals Cardiac Arrest As Cause Of Demise

Featured Image

An autopsy done on Davide Astori, late captain of Fiorentina, who passed away on Sunday has revealed cardiac arrest as the cause for his death.

The Serie A club revealed the 31-year-old defender died in his sleep in his hotel room, ahead of their match against Udinese.

And an initial autopsy has revealed that Astori most likely suffered bradyarrhythmia – meaning his heartbeat got slower and slower until it stopped – while he was sleeping from Saturday night into Sunday morning.

“Based on the evidence of the autopsy examination, carried out on March 6, 2018, on the body of Davide Astori, with reference to the cause of death, this cause can be indicated as of a cardiac nature, most likely a bradyarrhythmia with pluri-visceral congestion and a pulmonary oedema,” Antonio De Nicolo, the chief prosecutor of Udine, told RAI television.

“From the preliminary results, it does not seem like there is any external causes other than that of a natural death, but prudently our advisors are telling us that we must wait for the result of histological examinations before making a definitive statement.”

There will be further and deeper investigations into Astori’s passing with the results expected in 60 days.

Italian authorities confirmed on Monday that they had opened manslaughter proceedings into the death of the 14-cap Italy international.

Under Italian law, the only way an autopsy could take place on Astori in order to discover the cause of death was to open such a case.

Buhari Snubs Obasanjo On His 81st Birthday

Featured Image

A former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo, clocked 81 on Monday, March 5, and as usual got congratulatory messages coming from well-wishers and critics alike.

But as of Tuesday, President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to circulate a public statement congratulating the former President on his 81st birthday – an action that completely deviates from the presidency’s tradition of felicitating with former heads of state and some top Nigerian dignitaries on their birthday anniversaries.

It is understood that while the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, former Deputy Governor Iyiola Omisore of Osun State, Senate President Bukola Saraki, former Senate President, David Mark, Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have all congratulated the former leader, the current president is yet to do so.

It would be recalled that in 2017, Buhari had from his hospital bed in London, telephoned Obasanjo to congratulate him on his 80th birthday.

“Those of us who served under you in various capacities recall a man with boundless energy, with razor sharp mind, and one who does not suffer fools gladly. Working with you was a school in itself, and the lessons learnt are worth their weight in gold,” the president had reportedly said of Mr. Obasanjo at the time.

The reason for not felicitating with the former president this time remained unclear as his spokespersons – Femi Adesina and Garba Shehu – have kept mum on the matter despite multiple calls and questions on social media.

However, there are speculations by some Nigerians that the presidency may have deliberately ignored the former president’s birthday due to the recent sour relationship between the duo.

This is because between January 1 and March 4, the presidency had circulated at least 18 such messages, felicitating with dignitaries, ranging from JK Randle, renowned chartered accountant and administrator, who turned 74 on January 12,  to former Super Eagles Coach, Adegboyega Onigbinde, who clocked 80 on March 5, the same day Mr. Obasanjo celebrated his 81st birthday.

But bear in mind that in January, Obasanjo had written Buhari advising him not to seek reelection, adding that the President has failed to meet the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians.

Shortly after the letter, Obasanjo began a political movement, aimed at reclaiming power from the current APC government in 2019.

U.S. Announces Major Interest In Nigeria’s 2019 Elections

Featured Image

The President Donald Trump led government of the United States of America has disclosed that Nigeria’s 2019 general elections and a peaceful transition remain its major priority in view of  the country’s strategic position in the West African sub-region.

The U.S Secretary of state, Mr. Rex Tillerson, who said this ahead of his coming visit to Africa, said Nigeria’s 2019 general election is a major priority for the U.S because the country would be the “third most populous country in the world by 2050”.

The U.S Secretary of state, Mr. Rex Tillerson

The U.S Secretary of state, Mr. Rex Tillerson

He is expected to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari and other top government functionaries, and also leaders of Chad, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Kenya during his travels from March 6 to 13.

Tillerson also lauded the progress Africa, as a continent, has made with democracy. He pointed out that there are still challenges but noted that the election of Mr. George Weah in Liberia is encouraging.

The department said over two decades ago, the number of countries in Africa with really democratically elected government were really very few – only three or four.

He said: “Now we had over two dozens African countries with democratically elected governments and which are hopefully not going to have transitions in government through coup d’etats and other illegal methods.”

“As we look at the 20 elections, obviously Nigeria, though it’s not this year – it’s going to be next year – that really is a major priority focus, because that’s going to be the third most populous country in the world by 2050.”

“It has really very complex political issues and ethnic and tribal issues and security issues.”

“And that’s an area that we really are focusing on how to do a peaceful transition, a democratic transition, but more important is how to hold governments accountable to the people.”

“Horrendous rule of Charles Taylor and the degradation of the institutions there, but now we’ll going back and they’re building, and I think with the election of George Weah that’s going to be a positive thing.”

“How do we advance political and economic reform that will help in the transition process? Those are issues too that we’re working in Zimbabwe with the transition between Robert Mugabe and Emmerson Mnangagwa.”

“And also, we’re looking hopefully at South Africa with the election of Cyril Ramaphosa from Jacob Zuma and seeing how that’s going to transition.”

Real Betis want to bring Iker Casillas back to La Liga. The former Real Madrid shot-stopper enjoyed a first season with FC Porto but has been relegated to the bench for the majority of the 2017/18 campaign.

Lazio have identified a replacement for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. The Serbian midfielder has been named as a Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid transfer target in recent weeks and it looks likely he will move away from the Italian capital in what could be a blockbuster summer move.

N’golo Kante was missing from the match day squad to face City on Sunday and this is due to him fainting in training two days before the match.

The midfielder was cleared to face Manchester City, but felt down on Sunday and was dropped as precaution.

Kante was attended to by doctors at the training ground, running cardiology tests to rule out heart problems.

Drinkwater and Fabregas played in midfield against the table topping City, as Chelsea lost 1-0 away to drop five points behind the top 4.

Nigerians Agonise Over Dirty, Shortage Of Smaller Naira Notes

In an attempt to quell currency scarcity and improve the circulation of N5, N10, N20, and N50 in the economy, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) had last week commenced the disbursement of smaller naira notes to traders in the country.

“The notes we will be disbursing are mints. This money is not meant for you to keep in your house or to go and spray at weddings or sell.

“We have our operatives everywhere and whoever is caught selling these notes will be prosecuted.

“These notes are meant to be used for daily transactions so that when a customer comes to the market, you won’t tell him or her that you don’t have change,’’ the acting Director, Currency Operations Department, Mrs. Priscilia Eleje, said at a publicity campaign on “Disbursement of Lower Denominations of the Naira’’ in Wuse Market, Abuja last Tuesday.

Hector Bellerin Reportedly Furious With Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger After Being Dropped Vs Brighton

Featured Image

Hector Bellerin is furious with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger after being axed just two hours before their defeat at Brighton, according to reports in the Sun.

The Spain international, 22, is contracted to the Emirates until the summer of 2023, but is ready to once again push for a move back to Barcelona, who he played for as a youth and where he was born.

Hector Bellerin was expected to start against the Seagulls at the Amex Stadium and had trained as normal with the squad for the previous two days in preparation for the match.

However, Wenger is understood to have hooked Bellerin from the starting XI just two hours before kickoff, replacing him with Calum Chambers.

Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger Not Ready To Quit

Featured Image

Arsene Wenger has reportedly told his backroom staff that he will not resign as Arsenal manager at the end of the season.

Arsene Wenger signed a new two-year deal with Arsenal last summer, but calls for him to end his 22-year stay at the club have once again reached fever pitch following a run of four successive defeats across all competitions.

Sunday’s 2-1 loss at Brighton left Arsenal 13 points off the Champions League places and 33 behind leaders Manchester City, leading Wenger to concede defeat in the race to finish in the top four.

However, The Times reports that Wenger is still adamant that he is the right man for the job and is determined to see out the remainder of his contract before reviewing his future again in summer 2019.

Wenger has reportedly told his coaches that the club will have to sack him if they are to get rid of him before then, with the Frenchman hoping that the strength of his relationship with majority shareholder Stan Kroenke will keep him at the Emirates Stadium.

A number of key directors have begun to lose faith in Wenger, but would still prefer him to step down rather than take the decision to sack him.
