President of Nigerian MUD Cosmetics, Onyinye Onwugbenu, had her conventional wedding a couple of days prior.
The girl of elite rich person businessperson and Chairman of Louis Carter, Chief Izu Onwugbenu got hitched to Bosah Chukwuogo, an IT proficient and will be having the white wedding function in Lagos some of the time not long from now.
The spouse’s closest companions Genevieve Nnaji & Dodos Uvieghara graced the event which occurred at the family home in Uruagu-Nnewi, Anambra state and Flavor likewise performed at the occasion.
In a lecture delivered at Babcock University’s 12th Convocation titled, ‘Transforming Nigeria economy: Opportunities and Challenges’, Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala gave the breakdown of the allocations of Nigeria’s 10 highest revenue receiving states based on the federal allocations in 2013.
Finance Minister, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala listed the states which according to her, earn more than the annual budgets of some neighboring countries and queried what these states have been doing with their allocations.
The allocations are as follows:
Akwa Ibom N260 billion,
Rivers N230 billion,
Delta State N209 billion,
Bayelsa N173 billion,
Lagos N168 billion,
Kano N140 billion,
Katsina N103 billion
Oyo N100 billion
Kaduna N 97 billion
Borno N94 billion.
“These were the allocations that all these states got last year, so the question is what did they do with it? Analysis shows that many Nigerian states receive revenue allocation which are larger than budgetary allocation of neighbouring countries such as Liberia which is $433 million, Gambia $210 million.
” So you see that our top 10 states receive more money than these countries and therefore you
should be asking what is this money being used for?” Okonjo-Iweala said.
“However it is not often that you hear people asking what has your state done? Most of their attention is turned to the federal government so we also need to ask what do our state and local government do with the resources they get?” Okonjo-Iweala further stated.

With about six weeks to vacate their offices, top officials of the Goodluck Jonathan’s administration have embarked on a looting spree, selling off priced government properties to themselves at ridiculous and scandalous prices.
To further compound the impunity of the Jonathan’s administration, a building allocated to Nigeria’s anti-graft police, the EFCC used for intelligence operations since the days of Nuhu Ribadu and Farida Waziri as heads of the organisation, has been taken off from the current head of the agency, Ibrahim Lamorde by the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan and allocated to her police ADC, one Assistant Commissioner of Police, Uche Ifeanyi.
An aggrieved top presidential aide who confirmed the last minute sharing of government properties located within the Aso Rock presidential villa, high brow areas of Abuja such as Wuse 2, Asokoro and Maitama as well as in places like Victoria Island, Ikoyi, Apapa GRA and Ikeja GRA in Lagos, disclosed that Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Senator Anyim Pius Anyim is the one coordinating the last minute looting and sharing exercise.
It was further learnt that as part of deliberate and well coordinated efforts under the supervision of Nigeria’s controversial Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Mr Mohammed Bello Adoke, SAN to cripple the EFCC soon after its immediate past chairman, Farida Waziri was relieved of her position, Lamorde largely seen as weak and docile was summoned to the villa to surrender the keys to the building located at 15 Ibrahim Taiwo road within the Aso Rock villa. “He was not even allowed to remove the EFCC furniture in the building”, the source added.
The building was subsequently allocated to Mrs Jonathan’s ADC to live in. To give the criminal effrontery official seal, the property which is a seven bedroom duplex with two bungalows is now being given to the First Lady’s aide to buy at less than the price of the furniture in the building. The source also disclosed that apart from Mrs Jonathan’s ADC, ministers, President Jonathan’s aides, friends and associates are the main beneficiaries of the on-going hurried sell-off of government choice properties across major cities.
Further details of who has bought or is buying what in the mad looting going on in Abuja will soon be made public by this medium.
The wife of the President, Patience Jonathan, on Wednesday visited her hometown, Okrika, in Rivers State. Jonathan’s visit is the first since the March 28 Presidential election, in which her husband, President Goodluck Jonathan, conceded defeat to the President-elect, Maj.Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
Patience, who expressed surprise at the large turnout of people, thanked them for their love and support. She described their warm welcome as a demonstration of their love and affection for her. Mrs. Jonathan also thanked them for their prayers, support and belief in her husband’s leadership. Some of the people, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria, said they were proud of the President’s wife.
One of them, Mrs. Remi Kuku, said Nigerian women had never had it so good until Mrs. Jonathan came on board.
“History will be kind to her, no matter what anyone or group says about her; she is a goal-getter and I wish her well,’’ Kuku said.
Also, Mr. James Bright said Mrs. Jonathan had contributed to the socio-economic development of Okrika people.
The Department of State Services has said that it is making suitable move over the affirmed threat of Ndigbo in Lagos by Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu.
Answering inquiries at the National Information Center in Abuja on Wednesday, representative for the secret administration, Marylyn Ogar, said the administration was taking care of the matter however she declined to give the subtle elements of the move being made.
“We are taking appropriate action. Yesterday, the service had once again warned all Nigerians not to stoke the embers of discord within the country. “If the presidential election had come and gone successfully, we wouldn’t want people to begin to whip up sentiments unnecessarily. So we are handling it.”
A Lagos-based lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana (SAN), has advised the Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, to take the impeachment notice served on him by the 19 All Progressives Congress members of the state House of Assembly seriously, saying the notice is valid before the law.
Citing sections 91, 96 and 188 of the country’s constitution, Falana explained that what was required to serve an impeachment notice was one-third of the members of the assembly, noting that the 19 members that signed the notice were more than the one-third of the total legislators required by the constitution.
He added that the constitution did not also stipulate that the impeachment notice must be signed in the Assembly chamber.
“Once the governor receives the notice, it has to be taken seriously because impeachment is a serious matter in the Constitution. That is why I am advising the governor to take this matter very seriously. He should seek legal advice on this matter,” Falana said.
“Section 96 (1) says the quorum of a House of Assembly shall be one-third of all the members of the House. In the case of Ekiti, the very least that can sit is eight members.
“Section 188 says that whenever a notice of any allegation in writing is signed by not less than one-third of the members of the House of Assembly and is presented to the Speaker that is known to law, the Speaker shall, within seven days of the receipt, cause a copy to be served on the governor or the deputy governor. That is enough to put the engine in motion for the impeachment of a governor. The constitution does not say the letter must be signed in the House.
“And from the look of things, that constitutional provision has been met. I do hope that the governor will take this notice very seriously, and react under the law.”
Way before colonization, when the Portuguese traders did business with the Eko people, and other ethnic groups along the coasts, Lagos was already a thriving city.
And the fact that when colonization came about, the British used the traditional rulers for indirect rule, meant the Obas actually predated that.
Shall we also tell this bigot, that the Oyo Empire was almost at it’s end when the colonialists showed up.
Another one called Cee Won, in todays world, put up a post that anyone not agreeing with him that Lagos is a no man’s land would be blocked from his wall.
I merely told him what the constitution of Nigeria said and he did the block.
How do people take of leave of their senses?
“Lagos is a colonial settlement.
“It’s a cosmopolitan city. The name itself ‘Lagos’ is a Portuguese name, not a Yoruba name, or Igbo or Hausa name. Do we have such in Igbo land? We don’t have such.
“Lagos is purely a colonial settlement, forget those who are claiming it. Some people came from Ogbomosho, they are only enjoying proximity. And they are taking the thing as the owner of the land, which is wrong.
“In those days you dare not cross Marina, there is a prison yard near that Marina there, you don’t cross there because they will arrest you and put you in cell. You don’t go there. All the Ikoyi you see, all the Victoria Island, was a colonial master arrangement, not a Yoruba arrangement. So the issue of Igbo land and Yoruba land is a different thing.
“If you say Igbo man cannot go to Oyo State or Ekiti State and contest, I will concede, but Lagos is a colonial settlement, not a Yoruba land. They are only laying claim.”

Representative Babangida Aliyu of Niger state says he would preferably leave from active legislative issues than defect from his gathering PDP to APC.
Tending to some neighborhood government Chairmen that paid him a solidarity visit at the state Government house in Minna yesterday April eighth, the Governor alluded to PDP individuals who have subsequent to abandoned as stomach legislators who are experiencing neediness, absence of ethics and honesty
“Those who have defected from PDP to APC have clearly demonstrated that they are not principled and they are suffering from poverty, lack integrity and not morals and could easily be described as stomach politicians. For me, I will rather resign from politics than defect to APC or any other party. For principles of integrity, morality, we have chosen to remain in PDP. I heard people insinuating that I have dumped my party candidate for the APC candidate. It is a lie, I will never do such a thing” he said
The leadership of the All Progressives Congress will ratify the list of persons to be appointed into the Federal Executive Council before presentation to the National Assembly. It was learnt in Abuja on Wednesday that party leaders were seeking to restore the party supremacy which some alleged was lost during the 16 years that the Peoples Democratic Party held sway.
A prominent northern leader of the party, who pleaded for anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, said the APC was working to avoid the pitfalls which led to the collapse of the PDP.
“We are looking at a situation where the party will direct the affairs of government in line with our manifesto. Recall that this was largely the case during the second republic.
“But since 1999, what we have seen is the rise of individuals whose personal interests took precedence over the general interest of the party and the people.
“The APC cannot afford to let this happen because we have a social contract with the Nigerian people who voted for the party based on the promise to bring about change in the polity.”
According to him, under the APC administration, there is no way the President’s wife would have the latitude to meddle in the party affairs to the extent of dictating who got appointed and who did not.
He said, “This time around, the party will make an input into how its elected public office holders conduct the business of delivering on promises made, because we, as a party, will share in their success and will also share in the blame, should they fail.”
While responding to a question as to how members of the cabinet would emerge, Onu said the APC was a party which was determined to do things differently to ensure that Nigerians get value from government.
“In forming government, you have to make consultations with the party. We are a party of change, we are a party that is looking forward to building a Nigeria that many of the problems we have today will be solved, and we can’t do things the way they were done before; knowing that the way they were done before didn’t give the results that were desired.”
