Buhari denies barring AIT, blames overzealous aides

Nigeria’s president-elect Muhammadu Buhari, has instructed all his staff, including the personnel attached directly to him, to steer clear of all dealings with the media, and leave all media affairs to his official media team.
Buhari_acceptance


In a statement in Abuja on Wednesday, April 29, by the Directorate of Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Mr. Buhari aligned himself with the pronouncement of his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC which had earlier expressed disagreement with the temporary barring of the African Independent Television (AIT) from covering his activities.


“I would like everyone to henceforth stay within his/her defined area of responsibility,” Mr. Buhari said.


The president-elect added that his media team should be left to continue to deal with their media colleagues in the best possible way.


According to the statement, Mr. Buhari was neither consulted nor informed about the AIT barring, and only became aware of the matter after the public uproar it generated.


“The time of CHANGE has come,” he said, “and we must avoid making the same mistakes that the outgoing government made.”

My Personal Advice for Young Nigerians !

The three most dangerous ventures that I will advice young, ambitious and desperate Nigerians never to consider for one second of their life are listed below.
The-Nigerian-Youth

Firstly, attempt to travel to Europe by land across the Sahara desert of North Africa in search of a greener pasture in Europe. Secondly, jumping into those over-crowded smugglers’ or pirates’ boats in North Africa that sail across the Mediterranean sea to Europe. Thirdly, carrying hard drugs to Indonesia to get rich overnight.

Federal Government demands bodies of 4 Nigerians executed in Indonesia

The Federal Government has condemned the execution of four Nigerians by Indonesian authorities over drug-related offences, despite pleas for clemency by President Goodluck Jonathan, describing it as a disappointment.
fg

The government however extended its condolences to the families of the deceased, demanding the repatriation of the corpses of the executed persons for them to be given a decent burial in their various communities.


A terse statement on Wednesday night from the Public Communications Division of Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Abuja, gave the names of the executed Nigerians as Martin Anderson, Okwudili Oyatanze, Jaminu Abashin and Sylvester Obiekwe.  The government however warned all Nigerians to desist from drug trafficking and other offences, which attract maximum punishment in several countries of the world.


The statement read,


“The Federal Government of Nigeria has received with deep disappointment, news of the execution of  four Nigerians, Messrs Martin Anderson, Okwudili Oyatanze, Jaminu Abashin and Sylvester Obiekwe by the government of Indonesia for drug-related offences.


“These executions have taken place despite spirited pleas for clemency made at the highest level by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, and more recently Ambassador Aminu Wali, Minister of Foreign Affairs, on April 21, 2015, during the 10th Anniversary of the New Asian-African Strategic Partnership Summit, which took place in Jakarta, Indonesia,


“The Federal Government wishes to express its condolences to the families of the deceased.  It has asked the Indonesian Government for the repatriation of the remains of the executed persons, so that they can be accorded decent burial in their various communities.


“The Federal Government  seizes this opportunity to once again, warn all Nigerians to desist from drug trafficking and other offences that attract maximum punishment in several countries of the world. The Federal Government will continue to promote the welfare and protect the lives of Nigerians abroad, no matter their circumstances.


“Furthermore, government is committed to engage the government of Indonesia and other friendly countries regarding the conclusion of Prisoner Transfer Agreements and other bilateral means of safeguarding the interest and welfare of Nigerians.”


The convicts were reportedly taken to the Nusakambangan Island where they were executed by firing squad on Tuesday evening.


Abashin was said to be homeless in Bangkok when a new “friend” offered him $400 to take some clothes to Indonesia.


He was nabbed in Surabaya with 5.5kilogrammes of heroin and sentenced to death in 1999.

Atiku Advises President-elect Buhari To Reverse The Privatisation Exercise Of The Power Sector

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has advised the in-coming government of Gen. Muhammad Buhari (Rtd), to reverse the current privatizations exercise of the power sector for it to move forward, Leadership reports.
apc


Atiku made this statement at the 36th Kaduna International Trade Fair’s Seminar organised by the Kaduna Chamber of Commerce, Mines and Agriculture (KADCCIMA).


He said the failure experienced in the power sector of the economy has been due to successive governments’ approach in tackling the problems in the sector. According to him, President Goodluck Jonathan also took a wrong step in solving the power sector problem which has accounted for the current epileptic power supply in the country.


In response to why private investors were unable to collect licenses to build private refineries during the Obasanjo/Atiku administration, he said that in his eight years as Vice President to ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo, he knew nothing about what happened in that sector as Obasanjo doubled as the Minister of Petroleum Resources.


“During our administration, there was no transparency and accountability in the oil and gas industry. There was a time we were handed a Ghana-must-go memo on the oil and gas sector and asked by the president for our input and I refused to support it”, he added.

There Will Be No Minister Of Sports In Buhari's Administration [Reports]

Reports have started to gather steam that President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari will not appoint a minister to head Nigeria’s sports ministry.
buhari

According to source close to him, the incoming government is not keen on appointing anyone to oversee the affairs of the ministry, preferring instead to allow the Director General of National Sports Commission (NSC) to relate directly with the presidency.


The source said: “When you appoint somebody who knows next to nothing, what you get is the kind of crisis playing out now. Their interest has nothing to do with developing the sector”.


“Now we don’t know if the National Sports Festival will hold at all. We competed at the Commonwealth Games without official kits. It was that bad.”


He added that they have advised the incoming government to let the NSC be as doing so would help the Commission focus strictly on sports development instead of using limited funds to cater for needs of ministers.


It would be recalled, the presidency sacked Hon. Gbenga Elegbeleye, the director general of the NSC. Dr Tammy Danagogo, the sports minister, appointed Alhassan Yakmut, a director in the NSC, as the acting director general to replace Elegbeleye.

Nowhere To Run: DARPA Develops self guided bullets.

In a rather unnerving development, the US military has released footage demonstrating new “smart” self-steering bullets that can change direction to hit moving targets, perhaps guaranteeing that snipers almost never miss.
bullet


 The technology, developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), was shown in February tests to help both experienced and novice shooters accurately hit a moving target, according to video released Monday.






The Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO) program developed a system consisting of maneuverable 50-caliber rounds fired through a rifle equipped with an optical guidance system. The system tracks the target in real time and can shift the path of the bullet in mid-air to adjust.


The EXACTO program’s page says the system is meant to let snipers kill targets more quickly and in adverse conditions like high winds or dust.


“This live-fire demonstration from a standard rifle showed that EXACTO is able to hit moving and evading targets with extreme accuracy at sniper ranges unachievable with traditional rounds,” wrote DARPA program manager Jerome Dunn, who called the adaptation of the technology to a.50-caliber rifle a “breakthrough” which could open the door to “guided projectiles across all calibers.”


The video of the EXACTO system shows several rounds by an experienced shooter and one by a novice, tracing the predicted and eventual path of the bullet as it adjusts towards the moving target — hitting it every time.





The bullet has fins that move to adjust its path according to information received in the optical guidance system about the new location of the target.  The EXACTO program is entering its second phase of development, and DARPA says they hope it will increase accuracy for snipers since fewer rounds fired mean less risk of exposing soldiers’ positions.


President-Elect Buhari Invited For G-7 Summit In Berlin

The German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, has invited the President- elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, to the forthcoming Group of Seven industrialized nations of the world (G-7) summit in Berlin.

The invitation to the summit slated for May 8 and 9 in the German capital was delivered to Buhari by the German Ambassador to Nigeria, Michael Zenner, at the Defence House, Abuja, on Tuesday. The G-7 nations are Canada, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, and the United States.


Merkel is the head of the G-7 group.


The Ambassador, however, did not elaborate on the details of the letter, but told journalists after holding a closed- door meeting with the President- elect that he came to congratulate him (Buhari) on his election and handed over to him the letter from the German Chancellor, inviting him to the G7 summit.


“We have a very deep and intense relation with Nigeria and there are several areas where we can deepen our relation and develop them further such as in the area of economy and energy among others.


“We have a bi- national commission with Nigeria and we are one of the countries with which Nigeria has this bi-national commission and it covers the whole range of political, economic and security areas. There are many areas in which we can move further and deepen our very close cooperation,” the envoy stated.


The French Ambassador to Nigeria, Denys Gauer, who was also at the Defence House, said the French government was ready to collaborate with the Nigerian government to end terrorism in the country in particular and the sub-region in general.


He told journalists after his meeting with Buhari that “As the French Ambassador, I came to congratulate the President- elect for his brilliant achievement. His election is an enormous achievement for Nigeria and the democratic development of Nigeria. The people of Nigeria had expressed their confidence in the President- elect. The challenges of Nigeria are enormous and I have come to wish him success.


“We also held a small talk about our bilateral relations. As you know, our relationship has developed quite well in recent years. In the economic field, Nigeria is already the first commercial partners of France in Africa.”

Court dissolves 3yr old union over wife’s lack of vagina opening

An Abeokuta Customary Court sitting in Ake on Wednesday April 29th dissolved a three-year-old marriage between Mr Femi Olayiwole and wife, Kemi, due to the absence of vagina, deceit and frequent fighting. Olayiwole told the court that his wife deceived him to marry her knowing that she could not bear him a child.
court

He accused his wife, who had failed to appear in court after being summoned several times, of living a false life, frequent fighting and threatening his life.


“My wife had been deceiving me since we got married I have never seen her pass through menstruation. My wife does not have any vagina opening. Anytime I ask her for sex, she would give an excuse to back up her refusal. Meanwhile, we have been praying to God to give us children. My wife did not tell me anything about her condition before we got married, until February this year that she confessed to me that she had never experienced menstruation in her life.

I thought she was lying, so I went to see her parents who told me it was true, and that they thought their daughter explained to me before we got married,” Olayiwole told the court. He pleaded with the court’s president to dissolve his three-year-old marriage that had nothing to show for both now and in future. The News Agency Nigeria reports that the defendant was absent in spite several summons by the court.


The court’s president, Mr, Olalekan Akande, dissolved the marriage, saying that both parties had made up their minds to part ways. Akande said that both parties were free to remarry anybody of their choice, adding that the document of the marriage dissolution should be sent to Kemi.

Another $370m Abacha Loot Traced To Luxembourg – Swiss Ambassador

The Swiss government Monday revealed that $370 million of Nigeria’s money allegedly looted by the former Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha has been traced to Luxembourg.


abacha_loot


The Switzerland Ambassador, Hans Rudolf Hodel revealed this when he paid a courtesy call on the President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari at the Defence House, Abuja.  Also at the Defence House, an oil magnet, Prince Arthur Eze stated that with the coming of Buhari as president, the oil companies that had left the shores of Nigeria would come back. Arthur Eze came in company of the the Managing Director of Total Upstreams and the Chairman of the Oil Producer Trade Section (OPTS), Mrs. Elizabeth Proust to pay a courtesy call on Buhari.


Arthur Eze fielding questions from journalists said: “We are glad that General Buhari is one of the most disciplined leaders that we have in Africa and particularly in Nigeria. He is going to organize this country so that you will not see all these poor people again. Things will change in this country. It is God that gives power, and God has given it to Buhari.


“He is coming to change our economy especially the oil sector, as you can see, most of the oil companies who left Nigeria are now coming back.”

Asked why he visited Buhari, when he was a close associate of President Jonathan, he said: “You know General Buhari has been President of Nigeria and also a former oil minister. He knows the oil industry very well; he is a man who has ability to take a decision. He has been in the system for a very long time, that is why God brought him back. Everyone of us is supporting him because God has giving him power”.


The Swiss Ambassador speaking on corruption, said: “This is a long standing issue. Our laws are there to help all countries which are fighting corruption. We will help this government. If you remember, many years ago we gave back the Abacha money to Nigeria. The situation in Switzerland has changed. The policy is no longer the same. In the past people come to deposit money in Switzerland without too much controversy. Now, it is not possible to deposit money in Switzerland because of legal origin. Before banks had to prove that the money is illegal. But now, before you deposit money in a Swiss bank, you have to prove that you have earned that money legally. If you are a wealthy businessman, you have money in billions legally, but if, for example as a journalists you come to Switzerland with $2 million and say you earned it because you did a very good job, nobody will believe you”.


Asked if there was any Nigerian money in Switzerland needed to be refunded, the Ambassador said: “None that I know. Recently, there was another request by Nigeria to the Swiss authority to look for Abacha money and some amount has been found in an account in Luxembourg. That is now between the Abacha family and the government. They have tried to find a deal so that this money can also come back. The recent one is 370 million dollars.


On how soon the money would be released, he said: “The Swiss government is not involved. The Nigerian government has asked for legal assistance. When the government makes a request to my government, we work together on it. But this case is different. That is the Abacha family directly with the Nigerian government finding a deal. So, the Swiss government is not involved and the money is in Luxembourg. They have asked for legal assistance and we have provided them with this information. It is not a classical case and we would have prefer a classical case where we can give the money back and make sure that it is used in the interest of the people. Now it is up to the Nigerian government”.


The Cuban Ambassador, Mr Carlos E. Trejo Sosa, who also visited to congratulate the President-elect stated that his country would collaborate with Nigeria in many areas.
