Buhari Refuses To Sign “Child Protection” Bill, 3 Others

Featured Image

President Muhammadu Buhari has declined assent to four bills.

According to a letter to the Senate, and read by the President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki during Tuesday’s plenary, the bills included: The National Child Protection and Enforcement Agency (Establishment) Bill, 2018.

NOW TRENDING: Buhari Appoints Muiz Banire As Chairman Of AMCON

“Pursuant to Section 58 (4) of Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended), I hereby convey to the Senate, my decision, on (June 21, 2018) to decline Presidential Assent to the National Child Protection and Enforcement Agency (‘NCPEA’) Bill of 2018 recently passed by the National Assembly.

“The rationale for declining assent includes all the proposed duties and responsibilities of the proposed agency are currently the statutory responsibilities of the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs.

“The creation of the NCPEA may lead to the duplication of mandates of Federal Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), which would result in the wastage of scarce financial and other resources.

“Secondly, The courts and Tribunals (Standard Scale of Fines) Bill of 2017

“Pursuant to Section 58(4) of Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended), I hereby convey to the Senate, my decision, on (June 21, 2018) to decline Presidential Assent to The Courts and Tribunals Standard Scale of Fines Bill of 2017 recently passed by the National Assembly.

“Specifically, you may wish to note that the proposed standard scale of fines appears to be ambiguous, as it does not clearly state the manner by which any given offence will fall under a particular level on the scale.

“The proposed scale of fines may conflict with existing penalties and fines under extant laws which already impose penalties and fines for various offences. This may result in confusion.

“As the Naira’s value is dynamic, a fixed scale of fines may impair the ease of future review of Nigerian laws setting out penalties and fines for offences,” according to the letter.

The third Bill Buhari declined assent was the ‘Corporate Manslaughter Bill of 2018.’

“Specifically, my attention has been drawn to Section 1(5) of this Bill, which imposes a fine upon the mere indictment of a corporate organisation of the criminal offence of corporate manslaughter.

“This provision appears to be inconsistent with Section 36(5) of the 1999 Constitution, which enshrines the presumption of innocence until the alleged offender is convicted by a court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction.

“The Bill should clearly specify the penalties to be imposed for the offences created by the Bill.”

The fourth Bill is The Agriculture Credit Guarantee Scheme Fund (Amendment) Bill, 2018.

“My decision to decline Presidential Assent to the Bill is due to the fact that the increase in the fund size to N50 billion, which is a principal basis of the Bill, will not be effective as currently drafted.

“This is because the introductory language in Section 5(1) of the principal Act which sets out the size of the fund retains the original fund size of N100 million.

“I am ready to grant Presidential assent to this Bill once this drafting is rectified,” according to the letter.

Eze and his team will support artists from Nigeria, Ghana, and Gambia throughout the continent and beyond, utilizing Universal Music Group’s global networks for wider discovery, marketing, promotion and distribution.

He will report to Sipho Dlamini, MD, Universal Music South Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The label has signed a host of Nigerian-born artists including WurlD, Odunsi (the Engine), Tay Iwar, and Ghanaian-born artists Cina Soul and Stonebwoy. In addition, the label has recently signed marquee deals with acclaimed Banku singer and songwriter Mr Eazi for pan-African releases, co-signed Nigerian artist Tekno in conjunction with Island Records UK and Tanzanian singer and songwriter Vanessa Mdee in conjunction with AfroForce1 Records/Universal Music Central Europe/Universal Music South Africa.

In making the announcement, Dlamini said, “In recent years there has been an increase in visibility of Nigerian and Ghanaian music and its influence on contemporary music around the world. Eze and his team are perfectly placed to support, nurture and help develop artists and musicians from the region, whilst creating opportunities for new talent from the region to reach the widest possible audience.”

Eze commented, “I am delighted to be officially launching Universal Music’s Nigerian division at such an exciting time for African music around the world. The world’s largest music company opening an office within the region is a huge statement of belief in our local music talent. The signings we have already made show our ambition to help our artists reach the widest global audience and we are looking forward to working closely with our UMG label partners around the world to make that happen.”

This new division will work in partnership with existing UMG operations throughout the continent including Cote D’Ivoire, Morocco and alongside key markets across English-speaking Africa in order to offer artists comprehensive opportunities throughout the region and provide pan-African talent the best possible launch pad for wider international success.

Launched in 2017 in Johannesburg, UMG Live Africa has quickly become one of the leading talent booking agencies within the continent. It has succesfully helped redefine the role of a booking agency within Africa, with a broad roster of artists made up of both UMG talent and non-UMG signed artists making more than 600 performances throughout 2017. ULive Africa was founded in 2016 and is engaged in staging, producing, programming and hosting large-scale live concerts and events throughout Africa including Runway Jazz, the innaugral African Comedy Awards, Lekki Sunsplash (30th Anniversary Edition), The Music Industry Awards in Nigeria, Afrochella and Baskets & Wine in Ghana, and Cocktails in the Wild in Uganda and Nigeria, with several other exciting projects in the pipeline.

Universal Music Nigeria is currently developing plans to open a recording studio in Lagos in order to further advance the recording facilities available to local African talent. It will become UMG’s second fully purposed studio within Africa, alongside the existing facility in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Through these strategic investments, initiatives and executive appointments, UMG is accelerating the company’s focus on growing the entire African music ecosystem including recorded music, music publishing, production, live events, brand partnerships and merchandising efforts.

New Manchester United Jersey To Cost 91,000 Naira

Featured Image
Fans of Manchester United will have to pay a hefty  fee of £192 if they wish to purchase the club’s full ‘authentic’ home strip for the 2018-19 campaign.

Manchester United unveiled their new kit on Tuesday morning to mixed reviews ahead of the start of their pre-season campaign in the United States.

Reference to the 140th anniversary of the club being founded is made with a train track graphic on the front of the shirt, with United originally being known as Newton Heath Railway Cricket FC.

Purchasing the kit in full will not come cheap, though, as supporters will pay a combined £192.85 to get their hands on the shirt with a name on the back, shorts and socks from the Adidas website.

A replica version, meanwhile, will cost £126.85 from United’s official kit supplier when it goes on sale later this week.

A statement released by the Old Trafford club read: “The latest jersey marks 140 years since the club was founded, with a train track graphic referencing United’s original name; Newton Heath (Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway) Cricket and Football Club.

“The team was originally formed in 1878 by the Carriage and Waggon department of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway depot at Newton Heath and initially played games against other departments and rail companies at their home ground at North Road, Manchester.

“In 1892, the club entered the English First Division – the highest league in the country at the time, before changing its name to the now world-renowned Manchester United in 1902, and moving to the iconic stadium of Old Trafford in 1910.”

Richard Arnold, group managing director at United, added: “There are many great moments in this club’s fantastic history, and none more so important than the year the club was founded, back in 1878.

“This shirt from adidas pays homage to the year we were founded, and marks 140 years of footballing success.”

Jose Mourinho Hails Juventus For Signing Cristiano Ronaldo

Featured Image

Jose Mourinho has congratulated Juventus for the remarkable achievement of  signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

Juventus pulled off a major coup last week by completing the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo for £100m who had previously been tipped with a return to Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho has praised Juventus for persuading the Portuguese forward to join, while also claiming that Serie A is now a real force once again.

“We see three dimensional football. Everyone will look to Italy for Cristiano, to Spain for [Lionel] Messi and England for the Premier League,” he told Teleradiostereo.

“The Spanish League no longer has the two best players in the world. Now one’s in Spain and the other’s in Italy. The Premier League is the most competitive league with the best players.

“At this time, Serie A has become the most important championship in the world. Everything can change in football, the prospects of teams like Inter, Milan and Roma now change, and now Juve is much stronger with Cristiano.

“They are more motivated by the signing, they are contributing to the quality, attention and excitement of Serie A. For this reason, I congratulate to Juventus for this coup, which involves football, marketing and merchandising. It’s the complete transfer.”

Gary Cahill Considering Quitting Chelsea Football Club

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill has reportedly started to consider leaving Chelsea Football Club

Gary Cahill has enjoyed a successful six years with Chelsea winning two Premier League and one Champions League  and he won the FA Cup last season

However, Cahill struggled for regular starts during the most recent campaign and although Antonio Conte has now left the club, the 32-year-old is not certain to be handed a recall to the team.

According to the London Evening Standard, Cahill will hold talks with new manager Maurizio Sarri when he returns from holiday and may decide to leave the Blues should he not be given assurances over his playing time.

Cahill has just one year left on his deal and it will be the club’s last chance to secure a fee for his signature or risk losing him for nothing in 12 months.

Chelsea’s main priority, though, will be resolving the futures of Hazard and Courtois, who have two years and one year left on their deals respectively.

Comedian AliBaba Reveals Why Some Husbands Prefer Side Chicks Over Their Wives

Comedian AliBaba Reveals Why Some Husbands Prefer Side Chicks Over Their Wives

Popular standup comedian, Alibaba, has given some possible reasons as to why some married men prefer their concubines – side chicks – to their wives.

His assertion is coming barely two days after hip hop star, Ebitimi Odom, better known by the stage name, Timaya, was quoted to have said that “baby daddies are better fathers than lot of husbands.”

The legendary comedian, who took to his Instagram page on Monday to make this known, also urged married women to always find time for their husbands no matter how busy they think his schedule.

Comedian AliBaba Reveals Why Some Husbands Prefer Side Chicks Over Their WivesThe post (above) came with the caption (below):

“I have taught this to many married women, who say their husband is too busy, & several of them listened and snapped out of that, IF HE LOVES YOU, HE WILL FIND TIME TO CALL AND MAKE TIME FOR YOU. Others are just set in their ways.

“That thought process is one reason many relationships break up, some before it even starts. While I agree that it’s important to be in touch, CONSTANTLY, with your significant other, I also believe that there are times when work really can hold you down & shut down the world.

“There are other times, when it’s not that you are busy, but you just don’t want any negative energies messing up your already clogged up itinerary.

“The reason a lot of ladies have the belief that you can always find Time is because there is, often times, a guy who has time 24/7. Some could be jobless, have arrived, work for themselves, have light working hours, or even in careers that gives them time to waste. Believe it or not, there are people who can actually be busy for 4 hours straight.

“I am an MC, I have started working, sometimes, from 4pm and don’t get off till 12 midnight or even later. There are cabin crew members who are airborne for 12 hours or less.

“My Point is, don’t throw away a good man, because he is always busy. Or would you rather one that is always home? Like I said, it’s a core part of relationships to stay in touch, but there are times all YOU NEED IS UNDERSTANDING.

“I have a friend whose babe starts calling him from 4:30pm. Where are you? Are you still on the road? Why didn’t you pick your call? Are you sure you are at work? Are you not supposed to have closed? Can you video call me? Blah blah blah.

“Then he met one who doesn’t stress him. She will leave messages. How was your day? Hope the work load is not too much? You have been so busy, try and get a massage this weekend.

“Should I send you lunch? Should my driver bring you orange juice? Once you give a guy the impression that you are not concerned about his career, you are on a long thing.

“This also goes for men who, short of putting a tracker on their babes, monitor them like they are on Parole. You may be more beautiful, richer and sexier… but understanding your spouse’s career is KEY”

Nigerian Model Stabbed To Death By Rival After Instagram Feud Over A Girl

Nigerian Model Stabbed To Death By Rival After Instagram Feud Over A Girl

A Nigerian model who worked for top brands including Zara and Mercedes was stabbed to death after a row on Instagram with a fellow model over a woman, a jury has heard.

Harry Uzoka, 25, was murdered by a rival model, George Koh, 24, after being taunted that his killer had slept with his model girlfriend, the court heard.

The Old Bailey was informed that Uzoka called Koh “a fake” on Instagram and arranged a fight after finding out Mr Koh had claimed to have had sex with Mr Uzoka’s model girlfriend, Ruby Campbell.

The alleged victim, who was known as “H”, arrived for the confrontation on January 11 after recruiting his flatmate, Adrian Harper. The jury heard that both men were armed with dumbbell bars.

But while Mr Uzoka and his companion came armed with dumbbell bars, Mr Koh’s group took at least three knives, including a machete, the court heard.

“It is not difficult to work out which side won. Uzoka and Harper were outnumbered and bars stand little chance against knives,” prosecutor Richard Horwell QC told the hearing on Monday.

Mr Koh’s team set out to “cause serious injury”, he said.

Mr Uzoka and Mr Harper ran off when they realised they were confronted with knives, but only Mr Harper got away, the court heard.

The prosecutor told the court Mr Koh, who “was also a model but not as successful as Uzoka”, had “something of an obsession” with Mr Uzoka, but that “admiration for another model and his success had turned to contempt”.

Horwell QC added: “Harry Uzoka was a well known and successful model with a bright future ahead of him.

“This celebrity status is relevant because it is that part of his life that brought him into contact with George Koh.

“Koh was also a model, but not as successful as Uzoka, they were occupational acquaintances but certainly not friends.

“Koh claimed that he knew Uzoka well and said that he had had sex with Uzoka’s girlfriend and that was the reason why the two men no longer talked.”

The court was also informed that Mr Koh tried to delete his account and asked his mobile phone company to change his number.

But three days after the stabbing, Mr Koh handed himself in to police and told officers that he had acted in self defence after being “knocked to the ground” by Mr Uzoka and “had no intention” to stab him in the chest.

In a prepared statement, he told police: “I feared that he would kill me or cause me serious injury.

“I was on the floor when he fell on to me. I maintain that my actions were reasonable given the circumstances.”

Jurors heard Mr. Uzoka’s girlfriend, Ruby Campbell, was also a model and was out of the country working first in Los Angeles and then in Sweden.

The trial continues…

Koffi Olomide: Popular Musician Barred From Entering Zambia

Koffi Olomide: Popular Musician Barred From Entering Zambia

The government of Zambia has barred popular rhumba musician Koffi Olomide from entering the country because of the many criminal allegations levelled against him in the southern African country, and France, BBC reports.

The Congolese Soukus singer and dancer, with real name as Antoine Christophe Agbepa Mumba, was accused assaulting a photojournalist in Zambia during a previous tour.

He has also been accused of sexually assaulting his dancers, kidnapping them and employing them without valid permits in France.

With all but set for his now called-off visit, Olomide – who lives in the Democratic Republic of Congo – had described Zambia as his “second home” and said he would like to perform in the country before “I die.”

The 62-year-old singer also issued an apology, which was aired on Zambian radio, but he didn’t really address the allegations against him.

He only said that he loves Zambian women.

It was gathered that Olomide was supposed to hold two shows in Zambia this month but the government had warned he will be arrested the moment he steps foot in the country.

On Saturday, the French embassy in Zambia also called for the arrest of Olomide.

France’s ambassador to Zambia, Sylvain Berger, threatened to involve Interpol to arrest Olomide, whom he said has not yet been cleared of the allegations against him in France.

Koffi is regarded as one of the best rhumba musicians on the continent and his show is said to always be oversubscribed.

8 Migrants, Including 6 Kids Suffocate To Death In Truck Container In Libya

Eight migrants, including six children were found dead on Monday after suffocating from petrol fumes while packed into a lorry container on the west Libyan coast, authorities have said.

Reuters quoted the security directorate in the town of Zuwara, who issued a statement with respect to the incident, as saying that another 90 migrants recovered from the container were in critical condition and had been taken to a local hospital for treatment.

“The migrants were from various sub-Saharan African and Arab countries, as well as Pakistan and Bangladesh,” the statement said.

“They had been shut inside a refrigerated container designed for transporting meat or fish which was found just outside Zuwara, close to the Mellitah oil and gas complex.”

“As a result of the length of time they were suffocated, eight of them died including six children, one woman and a young man,” the security directorate said, adding that gallons of petrol had been found in the container.

It posted pictures of at least nine plastic jerry cans inside the container, as well as a pile of life-jackets apparently intended for use in a boat crossing.

Zuwarah is one of the points along Libya’s western coastline where smugglers and traffickers hold migrants before putting them on boats to try to cross to Europe.

It is about 110km (68 miles) from the capital, Tripoli.

Ekiti Poll: Fayose Attacks Buhari, Tells Him To “Bury His Head In Shame”

Following the Saturday’s Governorship Election in Ekiti state, where his preferred candidate, Prof. Kolapo Olusola was defeated, the state Governor Ayodele Fayose has vented his chagrin at President Muhammadu Buhari, even as he told Nigeria’s supreme leader to bury his head in shame over the outcome of the poll.

NOW TRENDING: Fayose Reacts As EFCC Taunts Him |”We’re Expecting You Soon”

Kayode Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress (APC) defeated Olusola, Fayose’s preferred candidate in the election, who ran on the platform of PDP.

Reacting in a series of tweets on Monday, Governor Fayose accused President Buhari of using the security operatives to win the poll for the APC and their candidate, Fayemi.

“Buhari should bury his head in shame for using the police, army, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and INEC to snatch the mandate given to Olusola and deliver it to Fayemi whom Ekiti people rejected,” he said.

“I am Peter Ayodele Fayose , I hold with my head high . I can never be suppressed. I don ’ t lose battles and I will not lose this. I will laugh last.

“The president should note what the Bible says which applies to him . ‘He that wears the armour should not boast as he that removes it.’

“It is only Buhari that will pride himself with the security shooting sporadically at polling centres, scaring people to pave the way for the APC thugs to snatch ballot boxes.”

FRSC Set To Bar Tankers, Trucks From Climbing Lagos Bridges

FRSC Set To Bar Tankers, Trucks From Climbing Lagos Bridges

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has stated that plans are underway to place bars on some bridges in Lagos in an attempt to prevent indiscriminate parking of tankers and articulated vehicles.

Mr Hyginus Omeje, the FRSC Lagos State Sector Commander, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Monday.

According to him, a committee had been inaugurated to look into how owners of trucks and tankers could do their business without climbing bridges in the state.

“We are working on how truck drivers can use the ground instead of climbing bridges in Lagos State to prevent accidents and gridlock.

“It has been proposed by the government that we can bar the bridges to prevent accidents and indiscriminate parking of trucks and tankers on the bridges,’’ he said.

He added that putting bars on the bridges will curtail gridlock and crashes involving cars and articulated vehicles especially the over-aged ones.

The FRSC boss said that many of the tankers and trucks had been on the road for more than 25 years, saying that some of the vehicles could not withstand the load placed on them.

“Many of them break down on top of the bridges and cause traffic jam.

‘’Many truck and tanker drivers deliberately park on the bridges on their way to Apapa Port and obstruct vehicular movement. All these acts will end soon.

“We are more concerned about the menace of gridlock on roads leading to Apapa Port.

“The state government inaugurated the task force to ensure that the trucks are streamlined to allow free flow of traffic along the corridor,’’ Omeje said.

He said that the gridlock created by trucks and articulated vehicles on bridges in Lagos were dangerous and had damaging effects.

“We are sitting on a keg of gunpowder because the bridges are weak as tankers, trucks and articulated vehicles are parked on them.

“When these vehicles are stationary on the bridges for a long time, they have negative impact, including deterioration, bridge-fatigue, damage or even collapse.

“The Ijora, Eko, Carter and Third Mainland bridges were expensive projects that cost huge capital to execute,’’ Omeje said.

Buhari Orders Immediate Repatriation of Super Eagles’ Fans Stranded In Russia

Featured Image

President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the minister of foreign affairs and aviation to commence the process of repatriating Nigerians stranded in Russia.

It is understood that more than 400 Nigerian football fans have been stranded in Vladimir Putin’s country after failed promises of employment there.

Following this, Nigeria’s government has stepped in to repatriate scores of its nationals who were tricked into buying football World Cup passes to travel to Russia, the president’s spokesman said on Monday.

Some of the visitors spent days sleeping at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport while others were forced to stay outside in front of the country’s embassy in the Russian capital.

They had bought Fan IDs, which served as visas for the duration of the tournament, for 250,000 naira ($700, 600 euros) in the hope of securing work or even professional football contracts.

Others said they came to watch the tournament. But they said the bogus travel agencies cancelled their return flights and pocketed the cash.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesman Garba Shehu said in a statement that the foreign and aviation ministries had “taken the necessary actions to bring the Nigerians back”.

The director-general of Nigeria’s National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, Julie Okah-Donli, said they were aware of the situation and were investigating.
