Why I Did Not Pick Aluko As My Cos - Ekiti kete gov. Fayose

EkitiState Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has said the allegation by the former Ekiti State Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Tope Aluko, that the military was used to influence the outcome of the June 21, 2014 governorship election in the state was another ploy in the fruitless efforts by the All Progressives Congress to rubbish the mandate freely given him by the people of the state.

He also said such a wild allegation could only have come from a questionable character like Aluko who he refused to appoint his Chief of Staff because he could not be entrusted with such sensitive position.

Bayelsa Bombing & Water Pollution: When Did Nigerians Become This silly?

With Heavy Heart I Ask When Did Nigerians Become This silly? Multiple bombings of Agip oil pipelines have caused thousands of barrels of oil to pollute waterways, farms and fishing grounds in southern Bayelsa state, residents said. Fishermen say oil flowed unchecked for two days. A spokesman for Italian parent company ENI says 16,000 barrels of oil per day were lost and the company Monday began working to resume production. The rules of the official’s job do not allow him to be quoted by name. Community leader Eke-Spiff Erempagamo says the spill is “massive — the biggest in years” in the Brass local government area. Residents blamed the explosions on Thursday and Friday on militants who want a bigger share of oil revenues for the producing states. The government said similar attacks last week are costing $2.4 million a day.

This article was written for the Unz Review: http://www.unz.com/tsaker/week-sixteen-of-the-russian-intervention-in-syria-a-us-invasion-of-syria-next/

This week was marked by major successes for the Syria military the Sheikh Miskeen region of the Daraa Province in the south of the country. In the meantime in the north, the Syrian Army continues its offensive north of the strategic Kuweires air base. But these military successes were eclipsed by rumors that the US was setting up and air base in northern Syria, possibly near Rmeilan, a town in the al-Hasakah Governorate in the northeast of Syria, and that this might be the preparation for a US ground intervention. Interestingly, the US media also began circulating rumors that the Russian were setting up a 2nd air base in northern Syria. Erdogan even declared that he “would not tolerate” a 2nd Russian air base in Kurdish Syria. And then, of course, there was the statement of Joe Biden who spoke of a US ‘military solution’ in Syria if no negotiated solution could be found. Listen to him claim that the US is capable of “taking out” Daesh:
