REVEALED: How Nigeria’s Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun “Skipped NYSC, Forged Exemption Certificate”

A report has emerged online that Nigeria’s Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, did not participate in the mandatory one-year national youth service scheme but instead, she forged an exemption certificate many years after graduation.

Premium Times reports that the Finance minister, who earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from the University of East London and a Postgraduate Diploma in Public Financial Management from the University of London, allegedly forged an exemption certificate many years after her graduation from the University of East London.

The news outlet further claimed that Adeosun’s official credentials show that she parades a purported NYSC exemption certificate, which was issued in September 2009, granting her exemption from the mandatory service on account of age.

“When she eventually returned to Nigeria in 2002, Mrs Adeosun still did not deem it necessary to participate in the NYSC scheme. She simply accepted a job offer at a private firm, Chapel Hill Denham.”

“However, ostensibly concerned that she might run into trouble for skipping the mandatory scheme, Mrs Adeosun, sometime in 2009, procured a fake exemption certificate,” the online news outfit claims.

Mrs Adeosun’s ‘certificate’ is dated September 9, 2009, and was purportedly signed by Yusuf Bomoi, a former director-general of the corps.

Officials said Mr. Bomoi stepped down from the NYSC in January 2009, and could not have signed any certificate for the corps eight months after. The retired brigadier general passed on in September 2017.

Buhari Vows To Deal With Politicians Sponsoring Violence Across Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday vowed to deal with some unnamed politicians who he alleged are behind the violence rocking parts of the country.

According to him, such politicians would be fished out and dealt with accordingly.

A statement issued on his behalf by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, quoted him as saying this when he spoke at the closing event of the 2018 Army Day celebrations held in Borno State.

The President was reported to have said the disgruntled politicians who have lost out were sponsoring violence in order to get relevance.

While thanking the armed forces for keeping the country safe, Buhari acknowledged that there were still challenges being faced by the nation

His words: “This does not mean there are no challenges. There are pockets of violence in several states.

“Some deliberately instigated by disgruntled politicians who have lost all arguments and are desperate to cause mayhem as a way of seeking relevance.

“We shall fish them out and punish according to the provisions of the law.”

“We have worked tirelessly to ensure and preserve the dignity and sanctity of life. When I was sworn in as the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I promised that this administration would tackle the challenges of insecurity, poor economy and fight corruption.”

“We are all witnesses to the fact that our once battered economy as a nation has exited recession and is once again vibrant. Our nation is safe again, thanks to the efforts of our security agencies.”

“I want to use this opportunity to reassure the world, Nigerians and the families of the remaining kidnapped Chibok girls and Leah Sharebu of the Dapchi School girls that this administration will not relent in our efforts to see that they are all released.”

Jim Iyke Reveals Why He No Longer Features On Nollywood Films

Prominent Nigerian actor, Jim Iyke, has revealed that he no longer features in many Nollywood films these days because movie producers can no longer afford his fees.

The Nollywood actor, best known for his play boy roles,  told Netng on Friday, July 6, that he always interpreted his roles professionally and would still act if he got the right pay.

“I have not been away, it is the producers who cannot afford me. So, I know my worth. But I have been busy creating opportunities and jobs for Nigerian youths so that we all can live better lives,” he said.

Iyke further spoke about the crop of actors who have formed the ‘New Nollywood’ and the general notion that today’s artistes lack creativity and talent.

He said, “I don’t think that is the case. It is wrong to say today’s artistes lack productivity and talent. When the likes of Ramsey Nuoah, Emeka Ike and I were acting, that was what was said about us as well, but I did not let it bother me. We learnt on the job and we got better with time. So I think the new crop of actors will also get better with time.”

The actor also revealed that his team recently created an App that makes it easy to find quality service providers and job recruiters.

INEC To Suspend Continuous Voter Registration In August

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday announced that it would suspend the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) on August 17 until after the 2019 general elections.

The disclosure was made known in a statement issued by Solomon Soyebi, National Commissioner and Chairman, information and Voter Education Committee, in Abuja.

Mr Soyebi, however, said that the collection of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) would continue until a week to the commencement of general elections, Feb. 16, 2019.

The decision, according to him, was taken following consultative meetings the commission had with major stakeholders in Nigeria in the electoral process.

INEC has within the week met with leaders of political parties, the media, civil society organisations and security agencies.

He said that the stakeholders stressed the need to comply with statutory timelines and unanimously agreed that sufficient time be given between the capture of data, its processing and the production of the PVCs.

“Given the activities necessary for this, the commission, acting on the recommendation of the stakeholders has decided to suspend the ongoing CVR at 3p.m on Friday, August 17, until after the general elections.

“The collection of PVCs will, however, continue until a week to the commencement of general elections on Feb. 16, 2019,” he added.

He said that the commission would overhaul and intensify its publicity initiatives to ensure that all qualified Nigerians who wish to register were able to do so and collect their PVCs before the general elections.

Bye Bye To Jati Jati! Senator Melaye Dumps APC, Sings For PDP (WATCH VIDEO)

Featured Image

The  Senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, Dino Melaye, has dumped the ruling All Progressive Party (APC) and may have returned to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In a video released on social media on Friday night, the senator, while calling the PDP his home, claimed that the ruling party “suffered” him.

In the video post, which has the caption “Bye Bye To Jati Jati,” the senator sang “PDP! Oh my home, oh my home, oh my home, when shall I see my home? When shall I see my PDP, I will never forget my home.”

“Oh my home, oh my home, oh my home, when shall I see home? APC suffer me o. When shall I see my PDP, I will never forget my home.”

The lawmaker was elected to the House of Representatives under the platform of the PDP in 2007, but he decamped to APC before the 2015 general elections.

However, he fell out with the APC, after a disagreement with the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello.

The drama took a different dimension in May this year, after the police arrested him.

But when he returned to the Senate after different court cases, he decided to sit among PDP lawmakers.

Barber Who Set Self Ablaze Near Omole Estate Dies In Hospital

Featured Image

A Lagos-based barber, simply called Ahmed, has reportedly taken his own life after setting himself ablaze on a road leading to Omole Estate, near Akiode Bus Stop, Lagos.

According to The Punch, the barber, who died while he was receiving treatment at a hospital, had reportedly emerged on the road around 4:30pm on Wednesday holding a five-litre jerrycan of petrol.

He subsequently poured the fuel on his body; struck a match and lit himself but a passerby, who was standing a few metres away from the scene, rushed to put out the fire.

But Ahmed was said to have died shortly after he was rescued from the scene around 5:00pm by officials of the Lagos State Ambulance Services.

It was also gathered that before the arrival of the emergency officials and policemen from the Ojodu Division a mild drama played out.

A source told the news outlet that Ahmed was running a barber’s shop until his life recently took a drastic turn.

The source who witnessed the incident added on Saturday that “while a man used a piece of torn carton to fan the man, some passersby were busy taking his photograph.”

 “I saw him pouring the fuel on himself but I thought it was water. Within seconds, he brought out a pack of matches from his pocket and set himself ablaze. Fortunately, a food seller close to the gate had some water. A man quickly took the water to put out the fire. Some people and I joined him. It was strange to me.”

Another source, a resident, said: “He was a barber and used to have a shop around Akiode. He closed the shop sometime ago and started roaming about the neighbourhood. He smoked a lot which I think affected his brain.

“Two days ago, I met him on the road and talked to him that he needed to change. I told him that I would take him to church next Sunday for special prayers. He asked me to buy roasted corn for him which I did after he assured me he would follow me to the church.”

Another eyewitness, Samuel, described Ahmed as a drug addict, saying that he had been mentally unstable for some time.

“Many people around here know him. He used to be a decent person before he suddenly changed as a result of drugs. He lived with his family within this community and they are aware of his plight,” she said.

A senior emergency official told our correspondent on Friday that Ahmed gave up the ghost while he was receiving treatment.

“It is unfortunate that we could not save the man’s life. He died while receiving treatment and his corpse had been handed over to his family,” the official disclosed.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, confirmed the incident, but said he had yet to be briefed on the man’s death.

#WorldCupWith360nobs: Brazil Boss Tite Admits His Players Where Not Clinical Enough Against Belgium

Featured Image

Brazil boss Tite has put his team’s 2-1 defeat to Belgium down to the opposition being more clinical in front of goal.

The Brazilians had 26 attempts on goal during the match, only seven of which were on target, and Tite was left ruing his team’s missed opportunities after the final whistle

“I thought it was a great match and we had a lot of it, with plenty of possession and a lot of opportunities. But Belgium were more effective in converting their opportunities,” he told reporters during his post-match press conference.

“They have a lot of top players and finished well. [Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut] Courtois also made a real difference. It was a very impressive game between two games with fantastic technical qualities.

“For all the pain I feel right now, if you like football, you have to watch this game. It’s going to give you pleasure. If you’re neutral, you can sit back and say ‘What a match!’ Anyone who appreciates football can see that this was a beautiful game.”

“I never lost a game on the tactics board, it’s the execution that matters and the execution was magnificent. Players have to be brave to change the way we play and we had two days to do it. That is down to desire, they wanted to make it happen.

“It is special. We can’t let them down back home now. We have beaten Brazil in the World Cup, we have created a nice memory, let’s treasure it and pass it down. Now we need more energy for the semi-final.”

Report: Crystal Palace Star Wilfried Zaha Rejects £125,000-a-week Contract Offer

Featured Image

Wilfried Zaha has turned down a £120k-a-week deal at Crystal Palace, reports the Sun.

The forward is currently being chased by the likes of Tottenham, Everton and Dortmund.

Wilfried Zaha’s nine goals played a major part in Crystal Palace securing their Premier League status last season.

Zaha failed to make the grade at Manchester United when Sir Alex Ferguson signed him for £15m in 2013.

Tottenham are leading the race to sign Zaha, but Palace have put a £70m price tag on him in a bid to stave off interest.

The Eagles are now believed to considering offering him an improved £135,000-a-week deal in an attempt to ensure he stays with them.

#WorldCupWith360nobs: David Beckham And Zlatan Ibrahimovic Broker Friendly Bet Ahead Of England Vs Sweden

Featured Image

David Beckham has signed up for a pretty unusual bet with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as the two legends prepare to watch their nations do battle in the World Cup quarter-finals on Saturday.

With Sweden set to take on England in the World Cup quarterfinals, the current LA Galaxy star and the former Galaxy, Man United and Real Madrid midfielder have agreed upon a little friendly wager.

Zlatan initiated the bet (naturally), offering to buy Becks dinner “where ever you want in the world” if England win.

If Sweden wins, Zlatan, the country’s all-time leading scorer with 62 goals, has demanded that Beckham buy him an item of his choosing from Swedish furniture chain IKEA. Fitting.

Beckham accepted Zlatan’s terms regarding IKEA but rebutted the England terms, saying if England win, Zlatan must “come watch an England game at Wembley wearing an England shirt and enjoy fish & chips at halftime.” Now wouldn’t that be a sight!

The other interesting thing to think about is Zlatan’s order at IKEA. He has shown he is a man of expensive taste in the past so the possibilities are endless here. A Lion-embroidered couch? A picture frame for a photo of himself? This might be reason enough to pull for Sweden.

Ibrahimovic also urged his countrymen to seize the moment against England, as he suggested they could finish this competition as world champions.

“They have a big chance to win the World Cup. They beat Mexico (in the group stage) which was good. They made a big statement and by winning against the Swiss,” Ibrahimovic told reporters on Wednesday.

“They’re going well and doing things that no one thought they could do. They believe, and they thought they could do it. They’re making good things, and hopefully, they could continue.

“We are there to push them. Every Swedish person in the world is proud, and we will be proud however it goes in the coming games.

“They should continue doing what they’re doing. It’s difficult to play against them and to score against them. If they can keep it up, they have a good chance.

“Now, it’s not only about how good you are, but there are a lot of emotions in the game. It’s a quarterfinal, and a lot of emotions come into the game. Whoever can handle that best has an advantage.

“When Sweden wins, let’s see what David Beckham tells me.”

Sweden Vs England: Match Preview, Team News, Prediction, Statistics, Head To Head #WorldCupWith360nobs

Featured Image

  • Sweden vs England
  • 3:00 pm Saturday 7th July
  • Samara Arena  

England and Sweden are preparing for their biggest games in over a decade when they face up in the World Cup quarter-final on Saturday at 3 pm.

England have not reached the last eight of the World Cup since 2006, where defeat by Portugal on penalties in Germany.

The Three Lions beat Colombia 4-3 on penalties – the nation’s first-ever shootout victory at a World Cup – to reach the last eight of the tournament.

Sweden beat Switzerland in the last 16, and are looking to reach the last four for the first time since 1994.

Sweden are the lowest scorers in the tournament too, having scored six goals in four games to date – and their manager Janne Andersson feels their predictability could prove an advantage.

“I think there was a coach who once said about their team that they’re quite easy to analyse but quite difficult to beat. I think that’s a right description for us.

“It shouldn’t be that difficult to get an idea of what we do – the surprise is probably that we’re terribly consistent. Whether or not you take us seriously and how they perceive it, that’s very difficult for me to say.

“We’re really strong in our beliefs and we really have been from the outset.”

Head to head

England and Sweden have met 24 times, with the Three Lions winning eight games, losing seven, and drawing nine.

The Three Lions won the last competitive fixture between the two side as Andy Carroll, Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck all scored in a Euro 2012 group game.

Team news

England striker Jamie Vardy could not play a full part in training on Friday due to the groin strain suffered in the win over Colombia, taking part in his own recovery exercise, but  Gareth Southgate suggested he may be ready to play a part pending a fitness test on Saturday morning.

Mikael Lustig is suspended for Sweden, but all other members of the squad have trained, despite a couple of injury niggles threatening to unsettle Andersson’s line-up.

Possible line-ups

England  Starting XI: Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Trippier, Young, Henderson, Alli, Lingard, Sterling, Kane

Sweden  Starting XI: Olsen, Krafth, Lindelof, Granqvist, Augustinsson, Claesson, Svensson, Ekdal, Forsberg, Berg, Toivonen

Southampton Midfielder Jordy Claise Set To Return To Former Club Feyenoord

Featured Image

Southampton midfielder Jordy Clasie has been linked with a return to his former club Feyenoord following a spell at St Mary’s.

Jordy Clasie joined Southampton from his boyhood club for £8m in 2015 but is now understood to be nearing a return, despite having come in as a highly rated player when he made the switch to England three years ago.

The 27-year-old struggled to adapt to life in the country and could not reproduce the sort of performances that prompted the Saints to make a move for him in the first place.

He spent last season on loan in Belgium with Club Brugge, and despite giving a good account of himself in the Jupiler League, Southampton aren’t thought to be ready to take him back.

According to Voetball International, the player is keen on returning from whence he came and it is expected that a deal will be ironed out ahead of next season.

The Dutchman is still very popular among the Feyenoord support, who would likely welcome him back with open arms.

Speaking with newsmen on Friday, the Commissioner of Police in charge of the Federal Capital Territory, Sadiq Bello, disclosed that the errant cop is “on remand awaiting commencement of trial.”

He said that Peters should not have shot at the car, adding that his claim that the girl was shouting for help was not sufficient ground to fire his weapon.

Bello explained that the two males in the car with the deceased told detectives that they were coming from a joint and that Igwetu stood up and brought out her head through the sunroof while having fun, stressing that she was not in any danger.

He said, “Police have taken necessary measures; the policeman that opened fire has been arrested, necessary disciplinary procedures have been concluded.

“He (suspect) has been dismissed from the force and arraigned before a court of competent jurisdiction and he is currently on remand awaiting trial.”

“It was alleged that the lady, one Angela Igwetu, stood up and brought out her head through the sun roof of a Toyota Camry car shouting and calling for help that she was kidnapped.”

 He appealed to residents for calm and assured the family of the deceased that justice will be done in the matter.
