The Iyase of Udo kingdom, Patrick Igbinidu, on Tuesday placed curse on his subjects who fails to vote for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Godwin Obaseki, in the September 10 governorship poll in Edo.

The monarch placed this curse when he received Obaseki and members of his campaign team at the palace, in Udo, near Benin, in Ovia South West Local Government Area of Benin.

According to the monarch, “The ancestors of the land await those who will vote against the governorship candidate of the APC, Mr Godwin Obaseki.

“You all have seen it, this is who the Udo people should support, who said he won’t vote for him, he should wait for the ancestors. The entire Udo kingdom should vote for him and anyone who gives his votes to another person is on his own.

“You all should support him because he is the person who Oshiomhole, our benefactor, have chosen to succeed him.”

Igbinidu said his position development strides of the incumbent Governor, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, especially as regards the dualisation of the road leading to the kingdom, Siloko road.

It will be recalled that the same monarch, had told the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Osagie Ize-Iyamu, that the kingdom awaits right person who will help the Oba develope the land, when he (Ize-Iyamu) visited him during a campaign rally in the area.

While addressing the rally, Mr Godwin Aidenomo, a leader of the party in Udo,said Oshiomhole’s government ended the people years of suffering by contracting the Siloko road.

He urged the people to vote against people who believe in sharing the common wealth of the people against development.

On his part, the governorship candidate, Mr Godwin Obaseki said he will continue with the developmental strides of the current government, which he said, he has been part of since 2008.

Nigerian businesses are about to receive some much needed help with the launch of Simplified Corporate Logistics, a full service procurement, shipping, clearing and forwarding and warehousing suite that offers a simple online solution to easy making and receiving of orders.

Speaking during an interview with the CEO, Simplified Corporate Logistics, Nduka Udeh, he stated that the company aimed at solving the problem many Nigerians face while making and receiving ordered goods from global suppliers.

“Thousands of Nigerian business face difficulties making orders and receiving ordered goods from global suppliers. Either they are battling with substandard suppliers, high shipping cost from unreliable shipping companies, or they are struggling with unscrupulous agents who in most cases cause demurrage and other port charges to accumulate.

“With the world going digital, it’s about time Nigerian business experience a one click solution to these problems, where from the comfort of their office, they can use a simple solution to process shipment from their suppliers globally, procure items globally, process their customs documentation, manage their warehouse inventory as well as process shipments for exports,” he said.

Udeh explained that with the company has also launched a suite as part of its solution to aid companies needing to export goods to the United States of America in an easy straight forward process where ever they may be in the country.

“The service covers the full spectrum of business cargo handling from procurement to delivery, saving clients myriad of costs and risk associated with shipping, storage and clearing of inward bound cargoes. Businesses simply place their requests online using a secured platform, and Simplified Corporate Logistics takes care of the rest, whether import or export,” he said.

He also explained that the organisation offers other services which include, forex sourcing and financing as well as help in equipment support as needed adding that it also provides businesses with access to
cheaper equipment in partnership with major auction companies in the USA that offer re-sale of fairly used equipment in good working condition.

He said,“One of the biggest challenges facing small and medium scale businesses in Nigeria is that of lack of a simplified solution that caters for all their logistics needs that can be accessed from one simple online portal. The process of procurement, shipping, clearance and delivery of goods has turned into an incredibly expensive and time-exhausting one for business owners due to hidden customs charges introduced by agents whose unreliable business practices has lead many business to pay huge amounts on clearing. These hassles of time and money can be the thin line between business survival and growth or stagnation and collapse.

“Sourcing of Forex has also become one of the most time consuming part of running any business and SCL is set to ease these burdens for Nigerian businesses by allowing businesses to simply pay in Naira, and SCL will source the Forex, procure, ship, clear and deliver to their doorstep. To reduce charges and fines incurred by customers, we provide support in clearing documentations such as PAAR, Certificate of Origin, SONCAP certificate and other relevant documentation prior to shipment arriving. This allows us to offer a guaranteed clearing of all goods in 6 business days or less. Best of all, our customers can do all these right from the comfort of their office, giving them more time to focus on their core business”.

Pensioners in Edo State have lamented the continuous non-payment of their gratuities and arrears years after their disengagement form the state civil service and appealed to the state government to come to their aid.
The said three of their members died while others are presently languishing in total penury following their inability to meet up to their responsibility to their families.
The pensioners drawn from various establishments in the 18 local government councils and state with placards had protested along major roads and streets in Benin the state capital with a call on Governor Adams Oshiomhole to urgently come of their rescue as some of them are dying gradually but painfully.
The pensioners took their protest to the State House of Assembly  Benin and NUJ  secretariat in  respectively to lodge their complaints.
Besides, they blocked the Airport road thereby causing hours of traffic gridlock for motorists nod others.
 Spokespersons for the pensioners, Mr. Gabriel Osemwenkha disclosed this yesterday during a protest by hundreds of pensioners over alleged failure of the state government to settle their arrears of pensions and gratuities owed them which runs into several months  and millions of Naira.
Osemwenkha stated that the victims had died due to deteriorated health conditions following paucity of funds to cater for their needs and also meet other domestic issues affecting them and their families.
They also called on the Governor to immediately set up the state pensions board with a view to addressing some of the challenges confronting them in the payment of arrears and gratuity of pensioners in the state.
The aggrieved members further faulted the claim by the state Commissioner for Labour and  Establishment Comrade Didi Adodo that “we are being sponsored by somebody”, saying that “this is far from the truth as we are retired responsible gentlemen and women and as things are, no one can come out to tell us, compel us to demand for our rights. We know it is our legitimate right, we are entitled to it, it is our own entitlement. Let him pay us that is what we are appealing him to do for us”
Osemwenkha said, “This is the fourth time we are coming here (Secretariat of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ, Edo state)  and we are appealing to well meaning Edo people to help us prevail on the governor to pay us our pension arrears and gratuities; the composition of pensioners here are local government pensioners and state pensioners in all fields of human endeavors.”
“We are appealing that you should come to our aid, help us, we are begging you in the name of God . Help us prevail on him to pay us because most of us are highly indebted to our creators and many are dying; in short, three persons died during the week. We are fed up, we don’t know where to go again hence we decided to come and appeal to you to help us talk to the Comrade Governor”, he stated.

…demand withdrawal of statement,

The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has condemned the statement credited to the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, accusing lawyers in the country as rogues.

The NBA in a press statement signed by the NBA General Secretary, Isiaka Abiola Olagunju Esq. issued in Abuja called on the commission to withdraw the statement.

‎Olagunju criticzed the chairman of the anti-graft agency for using uncivil language of ‘rogues’ and vultures ‎on lawyers who are doing their constitutional duties.

The General Secretary said, “The inaugural address of the NBA President was a statement of nearly 30 pages, which set oits vision and direction of his programmes for the Nigerian legal profession. He committed himself to leading a brave new Bar fully aligned with the aspirations of Nigerians in their quest for national development which can only be abchored the rule of law built on strong institutions.

“In the paragraph of the statement dealing with corruption, the NBA President restated the commitment of the NBA in the fight against corruption. He commended the modest achievement of the EFCC‎ but called for the reform of the agency to enhance its capability to deliver on its mandate on a consStent and sustainable basis devoid of political interference and on the basis of well established institution safeguard that demands proper regulation of the wide discretionary power involved in the investigation and prosecution of criminal matters.

“The NBA condemns in the strongest term the use of abusive and uncivil language of ‘rogues and vultures‎’ and such structures by the public authority. Name calling and abusive language is not expected of any public institution. It is unacceptable. The NBA demands unequivocal withdrawal of these statements and unreserved apology from the EFCC”.

‎The association called on th EFCC to. Endeavour to get its facts corretly before making statements or insinuations.

Last weekend the EFCC boss described the Nigerian Bench as one populated by rogues and vultures.

It said such group of people cannot sit in judgement over others or command their respect.
The EFCC in a statement by its spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren in response to the call by the new President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Abubakar Mahmoud, for the restructuring of the anti-graft agency.
Mahmoud had after his inauguration as the president of the NBA called for the restructuring of the EFCC.
Among other proposals, he said the anti-graft agency should be stripped of its prosecutorial powers.
But the EFCC in the statement by Uwujaren said the call by Mahmoud was a self serving one.
The EFCC said the aim of the call was to create “a cabal of untouchables” since some of the country’s senior lawyers are undergoing trial now for cases of corruption.

It vowed that there would be no sacred cows in the bid to stamp out corruption in the country.
The statement said: “It is too much of a strange coincidence that the suggestion to strip the EFCC of its prosecutorial powers is being floated few months after the Commission, in unprecedented fashion arraigned some senior lawyers for corruption.”

…say Boko Haram Has Been Degraded

The Coalition Against Terrorism and Extremism (CATE), a coalition of over 5000 Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) on Tuesday in Abuja held a peaceful protest in appreciation of the success made by the  administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and the current military leadership in the war against Boko Haram insurgents.

Addressing journalists during the rally which kicked off at the federal secretariat and ended at Office of the Secretary to the Federation (SGF), Secretary General of the Coalitions, Comrade Daniel Obaje said since the government of President Buhari came into office, significant progress has been made in addressing the security breaches that had threatened the integrity of Nigeria.

He said areas where Boko Haram once set up camp have been cleared, adding that some displaced persons are already beginning to return to their homeland.

14163661_10154307189066839_528644907_oHe said, “The Army freed over 5000 persons that the terrorists once held captive even as efforts are being intensified to free those that are yet to regain freedom.

He said, “Remnants of the terrorists are risking death to flee across the desert into the Mediterranean. The group in his defeat can only now think of hit and run attacks by drug addled fighters who now increasingly opt to fail in their assignment so that the military can capture them for rehabilitation.

“The recent weeks have seen the higher echelon of Boko Haram decimated with several commanders killed in troops’ operations. Others have been captured, which has left the group being fragmented with split in its leadership. Everything points to a group that has been finished.

“We therefore want to urge Mr President not relent in continuing with measures that will ensure Boko Haram terrorists are not allowed to regroup anywhere on our territory ever again. In fact, we urge that Nigeria does all that is necessary to make sure these killers do not regroup in Cameroon, Chad and Niger Republic, all of which share borders with us.

Responding on behalf of the SGF, Ibrahim Bapetel Hasan, SSA to President on policy development analysis said the report will be passed to president Muhammadu Buhari.

He thanked the group for acknowledging the efforts of the current administration in the war against Boko Haram, saying obviously, much progress has been made since President Buhari came into office.

He added that the current administration is happy that Nigerians acknowledge the efforts of the military.

At least 10 people have been killed in a suicide bombing near the Somali president’s palace in Mogadishu, which caused a huge blast and destroyed two hotels nearby, according to police.

Reuters news agency said al-Shabab fighters claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s attack.

Al Jazeera has learned that at least 10 people, including government soldiers, died in the attack and 20 others were injured.

Witnesses and social media users reported hearing a loud explosion in Mogadishu, followed by gunfire.

“There was a blast close to the SYL Hotel area, near the main checkpoint of the presidential palace,” said Ibrahim Mohamed, a security officer.

National Deputy Chairman (South) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Segun Oni on Tuesday linked money bags politicians whose intent, he says is to destabilise Buhari’s government, to the incessant attacks and invasion of villages to kill innocent Nigerians hitherto linked to fulani herdsmen.

The APC Chieftain was however, quick to stressed that  the APC-led Federal Government  has scored pass mark in term of fight against security challenges even as he  stressed that Boko Haram insurgents have been decimated  and that Nigerians should support the security agencies to consolidate on the success achieve so far in ending the activities of the terrorists.

Former Ekiti State governor stated this while speaking to select journalists in his office at the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja, yesterday where he also expressed concern over the rising profile of the dastardly act.

Recall that, there have been series of attacks in some villages of Benue, Plateau, Enugu, Nasarawa,  Kaduna, Taraba and other places, which has led to lost of several lives and property worth huge sum of money and in most cases these attacks are  linked to fulani herdsmen, a situation that has heightened tension as well as apprehension  across  the nation.

Oni however maintained that “this, personally worries me because these  gunmen who suddenly  becomes so notorious invading  villages and so on are people that have always been around. But my guess is that many of these are sponsored by people who had so much money and want to create instability.

According to him, ” I believe that  many of these have political motives and people who just wanted to trouble the government of the day, who doesn’t want peace because they believe peace would also not be what they would want to see. It is very very difficult  you will just here one version here today, another striking us there tomorrow like an organised snipers and so on. It is also a way of saying that what we are battling with is not ordinary.

He said “But one thing we can say for sure is that Boko Haram has been mutilated,  I believe the average Nigerian can see that, can feel that and understand that, whatever  is left of it let us encourage the  security agencies to move ahead and move fast and take further control. I don’t think the security situation is as terrible as it used to, no, it is not. Therefore, as far as security is concern, I would say that we have earned the past mark,  but we can do better

Reacting to President Buhari resolved to treat the Niger Delta militants like the Boko Haram he said, “I think is a warning, I think is a warning,you know at times a father would also warn his child don’t cross this line ohoo so that I would not, I would not ehnnn be hard on you. I think is a warning. And that warning let us also see it in good style, let us try and calm nerves down because the President is the president of everybody and it is in his interest and in our own interest  that things must run normal and I believed that  such warning, such body languages and so on would also have a way of encouraging people who genuinely want to see peace to go after it.

On the dwindling fortune of the nation’s economy he explained that “Well, the Public are right to expect that we would do magic, but the right thing is there is no magic way out of the problem on ground for  Nigeria. The economy was trumatized by a government which only agenda was to win another round, therefore, everything that they could put into trying to win a second round even bastardizing the economy were all done and we are all here.

“Now, fortunately for them I would say they are not there any longer. The reality on ground is that if the previous government were in power by now Nigeria would have virtually packed off may be many of us would have been refuge by now.  So is very easy not to remember where we are coming from. Yes, we are elected to do the impossible, we will do our own  best I just want to plead that people should give us more realistic expectation.

“This economy must work, we must get Nigeria back, but it is not as quick as anybody could imagine by touch of a hand. So people are entitled to their expectation, we as a government we will do our best to ensure that the end would justify his course. We are not elected to run Nigeria for one year or two years, we are elected to run Nigeria for four years and before we get to an appreciable length of time I am sure, I am confident that we would begin to see very very obvious changes.

Facebook is apologizing after featuring a fake, sensational news story about Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly in its influential “Trending” topics section.

The story, which has since been removed from the list, falsely claimed that the cable channel had fired Kelly for being “a closet liberal who actually wants Hillary to win.”

The story about Kelly’s supposed firing came from the right-wing website End The Fed, which boasts headlines like “What Obama Has to Say About ‘White Folks’ Will Make Your Blood Boil” and “Eric Bolling Exposes New Dirty Tricks Clintons Used to Escape Jail Time and Become Millionaires.”

The fact that Facebook was taken in and promoted the fake story was captured by the Independent Journal Review’s Justin Green, who tweeted a screenshot of Facebook’s Trending list before it was corrected:

Nigeria camp swelled on Tuesday morning with the arrival of Mikel Obi for the Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania billed for Uyo.

Brown Ideye, Victor Osimhen, Imoh Ezekiel, Musa Mohammed, Jamiu Alimi and goalkeeper Emmanuel Daniel were the early birds as they arrived on Monday afternoon.

The Chelsea star returns to the senior national team after leading the Dream Team VI to winning 2016 Rio Olympics bronze medal following their defeat of Honduras in the third place match.

Meanwhile, technical adviser Gernot Rohr and some invited foreign pros who have flight delays in Lagos are expected in the Akwa Ibom State capital on Tuesday afternoon.

Result of Saturday’s qualifier at the Akwa Ibom Stadium counts for nothing as Egypt have already picked the lone ticket from the group.
