Obasanjo Is Nigeria’s Most Hypocritical Former Leader – Soyinka

wolesoyinka

Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka

Nobel laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, has accused former President Olusegun Obasanjo of being the most hypocritical former leader of the country, following his attempt to hijack the movement for political change.

He stated this in Abuja on Friday at a dinner organised by the International Press Institute.

“Obasanjo has crossed the red line and I will launch a publication to expose him on July 3 at Freedom Park in Lagos,” Soyinka stated.

He is trying to hijack a recovery process he is least worthy to lead.

According to Soyinka, Obasanjo is not the right person to lead any movement for reform on change of leadership in the country in 2019 and that Obasanjo’s Coalition for Nigerian Movement should not be glorified.

He said Obasanjo and other geriatric leaders of his generation should step aside and allow a new generation to lead the nation.

Responding to a question that he has not been critical of Obasanjo as he had been of other past leaders, especially late General Sani Abacha, Soyinka said, “As for Obasanjo, I have news for him. And it has been a progressive thing.

“I believe Obasanjo has really crossed the red line because he is trying to put himself as the head of a recovery process. He is trying to hijack the recovery process in this nation and I say that he is one of the least worthy of one of the former heads of States to lead that kind of movement.

“I have brought out a publication about that, the title is in Latin but it means; who watches the watchmen. That publication is coming out simply because I will like to see new blood in governance in this nation and I think these corrupt and hypocritical geriatrics should stop recycling themselves and they should stop trying to co-opt their former cronies to take over the reigns of governance in this nation.”    (Punch)

One Binge Drinking Episode Affects Gene That Regulates Sleep – Scientific Finding

One in six U.S. adults binges drinks at least four times a month, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Previous studies have linked binge drinking to sleep disruption. Now, new findings from the University of Missouri School of Medicine explain how a single episode of binge drinking can affect the gene that regulates sleep, leading to sleep disruption in mice. The finding may shed light on how sleep problems can contribute to alcoholism in humans.

“Sleep is a serious problem for alcoholics,” said Mahesh Thakkar, PhD, professor and director of research in the MU School of Medicine’s Department of Neurology and lead author of the study. “If you binge drink, the second day you will feel sleep deprived and will need to drink even more alcohol to go to sleep. It is a dangerous cycle. How can we stop this cycle or prevent it before it begins? To answer that question, we need to understand the mechanisms involved.”

Using a mouse model, Thakkar monitored the effect of binge drinking on sleep patterns. Thakkar found mice exposed to binge drinking experienced a significant increase in non-rapid eye movement sleep four hours post-binge, followed by increased wakefulness and reduced sleep during subsequent sleep periods. Thakkar also discovered post-binge mice did not experience an increase in a sleep-promoting chemical, adenosine, in the brain nor increased sleep pressure during sleep deprivation. The research also revealed binge alcohol consumption affects the gene that regulates sleep, resulting in sleep disturbances.

“What we have shown in this research is that a particular gene — which is very important for sleep homeostasis — is altered by just one session of binge drinking,” Thakkar said. “We were not expecting this. We thought it would be affected after multiple sessions of binge drinking, not one. That tells you that as soon as you consume four drinks, it can alter your genes.”

In addition to Thakkar, the study authors include Pradeep K. Sahota, MD, chair of neurology at the MU School of Medicine; and Rishi Sharma, PhD, assistant research professor of neurology at the MU School of Medicine.

Woman Runs Away With Lover’s ATM Card After Sex, Withdraws N1m |RN

Tinubu-Magistrate_s-Court

Tnubu’s magistrate court, Lagos

Afeez Hanafi

A businessman got more than he bargained for after his lover fled with his Automated Teller Machine card and allegedly withdrew N1m from his bank account.

It was learnt that the woman, Thelma Kimberly, who is based in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, visited the man named Olugbenga at his residence on Victoria Island, Lagos State, on May 17, 2018.

Our correspondent learnt that the lovers went round the highbrow area to have fun before they returned home to ‘spice up’ the experience on the bed.

The 45-year-old man reportedly slept off after some rounds of sex and Kimberly, 22, fled with his ATM card and a mobile phone.

She was said to have made withdrawals, transfers and purchases at a supermarket in Lekki using PoS.

Olugbenga reported the case at the Ikoyi Police Division and Kimberly was eventually tracked down this month.

A police source told our correspondent that while the suspect was on the run, an order was sent to a bank she used to place a restriction on her account.

“The man then sent N100,000 to her bank account as bait with a belief that the bank would alert the police as soon as she made attempts to withdraw the money.

“However, she succeeded in withdrawing the N100,000. She even snapped the police order sent to the bank and sent it to the lover on WhatsApp.

“The police had written to the bank querying why the money was paid to her despite the order. Altogether, she made away with N1m,” the source said.

The suspect, in her statement to the police, confessed to the crime but said she returned the phone to the complainant through the manager of a restaurant on Victoria Island.

She said, “I met Olugbenga in 2016 in Port Harcourt when he visited my foster father, who is his friend. On May 17, around 8:00pm, I visited him in his residence on Victoria Island. He took me out and we bought some things. We had sex several times when we came back. He was tired and slept off.

“I left with his phone and ATM card and I made withdrawals of N150,000 at ATM stands in Obalende, Ikeja and VI. I went to a supermarket at Lekki Phase I and spent N363,000. I paid through PoS.

“I also did transfers of N250, 000 to some accounts. I gave some people the money. I was just spending it and can’t calculate how much I spent altogether.”

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, said the suspect had been arraigned before a Tinubu Magistrate’s Court.    (Punch)

South-East Senators, Ijaw Youths Council, CACOL Reject Budget Cuts

The South-East Caucus in the Senate, the Ijaw Youth Congress, the Centre Anti-Corruption and Open Leaders and an Afenifere chieftain, Femi Okurounmu, have opposed the alterations made by the National Assembly to the 2018 budget.

While the South-East caucus faulted the reduction in the funds allocated for the Second Niger Bridge and the Enugu Airport projects, CACOL said the National Assembly did not follow due process.

The IYC, on its part, berated the lawmakers for cutting budgetary allocations for the Nigerian Maritime University, Okerenkoko, and the East-West Road projects.

Enugu airport, 2nd Niger Bridge votes manipulated – S’East senators

The Senate South-East Caucus expressed surprise over the slashing of the N2bn allocated to the Enugu Airport Terminal to N500m.

The Chairman, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, told journalists in Abuja on Thursday that members of the caucus were shocked to hear that the initial amount, which was jointly adopted by the Committees on Aviation at the Senate and House of Representatives, had been reduced.

Abaribe, who is representing Abia South Senatorial District, said an emergency meeting by senators from the South-East had been called to unravel who made the cut and at what point was it made.

The lawmaker, who is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Power, Steel Development and Metallurgy, said the caucus was set to meet to find out what went wrong especially at what point the cut in the allocation was made.

He pointed out that budget documents were verifiable and “we are committed and determined to find out who made the cut.”

The senator recalled that the South-East lawmakers lobbied for the allocation to the airport to be increased to N3.5bn but were told by the Ministry of Aviation that it had an envelope budgetary plan, which would not allow an increment beyond the N2bn.

Abaribe alleged that N30bn was smuggled into the power budget without his committee’s knowledge.

According to him, the money was listed for expansion and re-enforcement of infrastructure in the distribution companies to reduce stranded firms.

The allocation, he said, “never passed through the Senate Power committee.” He asked, “Where did such huge sum of N30bn come from?”

“Let the Budget Office and other relevant bodies conduct a self-examination. Such self-examination will go a long way to clear certain grey areas,” Abaribe stated.

He added, “In the case of the Enugu Airport Terminal and the Second Niger Bridge, we want to find out at what point the cut was made.”

Abaribe said members of the caucus were collectively agitated. According to him, the geopolitical zone, which hardly receives a fair share of the national projects, had the little that came its way reduced.

He stated that no right thinking Igbo man would support slashing of allocation to projects in the South-East.

N’Assembly’s action, condemnable, says IYC

The IYC  said the National Assembly showed that it was selfish by reducing the budget allocations to developmental projects including the Nigerian Maritime University, Okerenkoko and the East-West Road,  and increasing its allocation.

IYC noted that a similar reduction in allocations to developmental projects was done under the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan. This, it stated,  led to the non-completion of the East-West Road.

The IYC, in a statement on Thursday by its President, Mr Eric Omare, described the reduction in allocations to major projects as retrogressive.

Omare, “We consider the action of the National Assembly as insensitive and retrogressive to the development of the country. It is utter selfishness for the National Assembly to reduce funds allocated to key developmental initiatives and increase its budget.”

He recalled the establishment of the Nigerian Maritime University, Delta State was one of the agreements reached between the leaders of the Niger Delta and the Federal Government to ensure peace in the region.

Omare stated that it was in furtherance of the agreement that N5bn was budgeted for the establishment of the university.

The youth leader called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately send a supplementary budget to the National Assembly to enable it to correct the anomaly in the interest of the Niger Delta.

He said, “The IYC is compelled to ask if the members of the National Assembly were elected to serve the interest of the generality of Nigerians or their personal interest.  There is no single reason why members of the National Assembly would reduce funds allocated for key projects such as the Maritime University, East-West Road, Mambilla Power Project and the completion of Enugu International Airport and increase their own budget. This is, to say the least condemnable.”

N’Assembly’s action fraudulent says Okurounmu

Also, an Afenifere chieftain, Senator Femi  Okurounmu has described the action of the National Assembly as fraudulent.

He said this in Abeokuta on Thursday while fielding questions from journalists on the sidelines of an event organised by a Yoruba socio-cultural group, Omoluabi.

Okurounmu noted that the lawmakers usually hide their allowances and other expenses.

Okurounmu, a former senator, said, “They are fraudulent; not only do they do a lot of budget padding, they introduce a lot of extra-legal amounts just to meet all those illegal allowances that they are getting.

“To now accommodate their own demands, they inflate the budget. The President doesn’t know how to deal with the National Assembly; so there is always a stalemate between the National Assembly and the Presidency and the President is always going along with them because every budget the National Assembly inflates must accommodate their own demands or needs.

“These are the things that people cry about; about the horrible, extraneous allowances of legislators – senators and members of the House of Representatives. This is where it comes from.”

He noted that there was a lot of corruption to be fought in the National Assembly, arguing that it was immoral for those who were corrupt to be making laws for the nation.

He, however,  said the President had no choice but to sign the budget because there was a stalemate.

He said, “The National Assembly blackmailed him; he cannot dismiss all of them and he doesn’t have the courage to fight them. If he has the courage to fight them he can fight them but he doesn’t have the courage because he’s surrounded by corrupt people himself.

“So, just as the National Assembly can blackmail him, he too can blackmail the National Assembly. So, it’s a game of mutual blackmail.”

N’Assembly didn’t follow due process – CACOL

Also, a civil society organisation, the Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership, blamed the National Assembly for not following due process.

It said the padding of the 2018 budget was due to the power tussle between the legislative and executive arms of the government.

The CACOL Director, Debo Adeniran,  in an interview with The PUNCH, said, “The legislature has not followed the right procedures. The executive is supposed to put the budget estimates together. What one expected was that during the budget preparation, there should have been room for the legislature to send their projects to the appropriate ministries, departments and agencies, but there has been power tussle between the executive and the legislature.

“This tussle has left Nigerians in limbo because the interests of the people are not the reason why the two arms are quarrelling. This is a kind of power show which should not be accommodated. What ought to have been done was for the legislature to go back to their constituencies to carry out a needs assessment. The legislature is also to blame for delaying the budget.”

Senators, Reps clash over inserted 6. 403 projects

Meanwhile, some senators and members of the House of Representatives have expressed different views on the issues raised by the President.

The lawmaker representing Yobe East Senatorial District, Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim, pointed out that Buhari should not be condemned if the 2018 budget was not fully implemented as it had always been impossible for successive administrations to do so.

Ibrahim stated this while addressing journalists in Abuja on Thursday.

Ibrahim asked, “When in Nigeria have we implemented a budget 100 per cent.” It will take us another 100 years, maybe, to do that. So, irrespective of whatever we put in there, he doesn’t necessarily have to implement all of them. Every year we talk about 50, 60, 70 per cent budget implementation; we have ever had 80 per cent. So, does it really matter if certain things were inserted?”

But Senator Dino Melaye said Buhari only tried to whip up sentiments against the National Assembly with his criticisms.

He pointed out that the legislature was not expected to be a rubber stamp to the executive proposals.

Melaye said, “I notice that PMB is trying to whip up sentiments against the National Assembly again by alleging that the 2018 budget was padded.

“What the President is authorised to do constitutionally is to present a bill to the National Assembly.  A bill is a work in progress and not a finished work. The reason the constitution directs the bill to be submitted to the National Assembly is that it expects the National Assembly to vet it and make inputs into such a bill before passing it as the Appropriation Bill.

“The National Assembly is not just expected to rubberstamp whatever bill the President presents. If this was the norm, then there would have been no need for the constitution to direct that the bill is submitted to the National Assembly in the first place.”

The lawmaker stated, “ Mr President should, therefore, refrain from playing to the gallery and milking the naivety of the masses on the issue.

“In any event, he reserves the prerogative of refusing to append his signature to the bill passed if it meets with his displeasure. He is also free to return the bill to the National Assembly unsigned, with a note indicating his areas of disaffection.

“Therefore, Mr President should halt his chicanery and smear campaign against the National Assembly.”

On Wednesday night, Senator Shehu Sani said the National Assembly made adjustments to the 2018 Appropriation Bill to ‘slim fit’ the budget with his administration.

He said, “Baba took his cloth to the tailors and asked them to make agbada for him. They measured his frame and after six months, they made a kaftan for him. He angrily complained that they shortchanged his fabric (sic), made a wrong design and wasted his time. The tailors replied that the delay was because ‘you have been travelling a lot all this while’ and the size was because ‘you lost so much weight and now you have a slim fit.’

In the House of Representatives, some members, who spoke with The PUNCH also expressed different views.

The Majority Leader of the House, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, told The PUNCH that the matter was not for the two arms of government to take extreme positions, but to resolve it through a middle course.

He argued that the proper thing to do was to first examine the President’s observations.

Gbajabiamila stated,  “The President has made some observations.  The two arms of government will work it out in a way that is most beneficial to the Nigerian people for whom the budget is for.

“That is what democracy is all about.”

But, the Deputy Minority Whip, Mrs Binta Bello, disagreed with Gbajabiamila’s “diplomatic approach”, saying that the budget had become a law which Buhari was bound to implement.

She asked why in every budget year, the Executive would raise questions over the power of appropriation “vested in the National Assembly by the 1999 Constitution.”

Bello noted that the executive rarely admitted blame or accepted failure for non-implementation of the budget.

She added, “I think what the President is doing is to pit the National Assembly against Nigerians. He knows that elections are coming in 2019.

“When people ask him why there is non-implementation of the budget by his administration, he will blame it on the National Assembly or use insertions as the excuse.

“My advice to him is that he should implement the budget.”

The Chairman, House Committee on Financial Crimes, Mr Kayode Oladele, said under section 14 of the constitution, government’s primary responsibility remained the security and welfare of the citizenry.

He explained, “Government here means both the Legislature and the Executive, both contributing to the budget to address the security and welfare of the citizenry.

“The power of appropriation belongs to the legislature. In the US, it is called the power of the purse, where there is also frequent debates over insertions.

“However, at the end of the day, what becomes the budget is the law that should be implemented, else there will be government shut-down

We’ll speak on inserted projects worth N578bn today – N’Assembly

Meanwhile, the National Assembly will on Friday explain the 6,403 projects worth N578bn allegedly inserted by the lawmakers into the 2018 budget.

This was made known in a statement by Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Aliyu Sabi-Abdullahi, in Abuja on Wednesday night.

“It should also be noted that the leadership of both chambers have directed the chairmen of our Committees on Appropriations to provide item by item, detailed explanations on all points raised by the President for the benefit of members of the public. They will, therefore, address a press conference on Friday, June 22nd, 2018,” the statement read in part.

Journalists at the National Assembly were on Thursday informed that there would be a joint press conference by the Chairmen of the Senate and House of Representatives’ Committees on Appropriations, Senator Danjuma Goje and Mr Mustapha Dawaki.  (Punch)

Calls For BBC To Drop Lord Sugar Over Racist Tweet About Senegalese Football Team

By Helena Horton and Anita Singh

Lord Sugar could be dropped by the BBC and face a parliamentary investigation after he tweeted a “joke” comparing the Senegal football team to beach hawkers in Spain.

The businessman, who has appeared in The Apprentice since 2005, posted a doctored image of the team posing with sunglasses and counterfeit handbags and wrote: “I recognise some of these guys from the beach in Marbella. Multitasking resourceful chaps.”

Embarrassingly for the BBC, his tweet coincided with the publication of the corporation’s ethnic diversity report, which called for a “substantial culture change” and recommended that managers be given compulsory cultural awareness training.

a screenshot of a cell phone © Provided by The Telegraph The cross-bench peer and former chairman of Tottenham Hotspur was initially bullish when Twitter users called his comment offensive, saying: “Frankly, I can’t see that. I think it’s funny.”

Babita Sharma, an anchor for BBC World News, wrote that his tweet was “vile”, to which Lord Sugar replied: “You make me sick.”

But an hour later, having perhaps taken some advice from the BBC, he issued a contrite statement that read: “I misjudged my earlier tweet. It was in no way intended to cause offence, and clearly, my attempt at humour has backfired. I have deleted the tweet and am very sorry.”

Dawn Butler, Labour’s shadow secretary for women and equalities, promptly wrote to the House of Lords commissioner for standards and to the BBC, calling for an immediate investigation.

She said: “Racism has no place in Parliament or society. Swift action must be taken.”

The row overshadowed the launch of the BBC’s report into how it plans to reflect the UK’s ethnic diversity within its workforce.

Among the report’s recommendations are that two members of the 15-strong executive committee must be from a black or minority ethnic (BAME) background by 2020, and that shortlists for all jobs at middle management level and above must include at least one BAME candidate.

Cultural awareness training should be compulsory for all team managers, in addition to the currently mandated unconscious bias training.

The report canvassed staff who said that recent on-air blunders could have been avoided if the BBC had a more ethnically diverse newsroom. They included an obituary of Shashi Kapoor, the Bollywood star, is illustrated with footage of the wrong actor.

In a second gaffe, a BBC reporter asked Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, if his visit to Pakistan was “like coming home”.

Mr Khan replied: “Home is south London, mate.”   (The Telegraph)

2019: June 12 Recognition Will Boost Buhari’s Chance In S’West – Ogunyale

Buhari-honours-Abiola

 

Brown Chimezie

Shina Ogunyale is a lawyer and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC).  He speaks on the posthumous awards bestowed on the winner of June 12 election, Chief Moshood Kashimawo Abiola, his running mate, Ambassador Babagana Kingibe and others.

 President Muhammadu Buhari has honoured late Abiola and others in recognition of their role in nurturing the country’s democracy, how would you describe this development?

In my own view, it is a welcome idea. It is long overdue. It is a very good initiative in a good direction. This reminds me of the words of my late mentor; Chief Gani Fawehinmi (SAN) that June 12 is symbolic. May 29 is not symbolic because May 29 is just like October 1st; May 29 is just a mere hand-over day from military to civilian and nothing more.

What made June 12 symbolic was because that was the only day that we had a free and fair election, well-conducted with over 40 million Nigerians across tribe and ethnic divide, went out to elect Abiola as their president. You will agree with me that we have never witnessed that type of election before and even now, an election where Abiola won across all the geopolitical zones. He even won in the hometown of his major contender, Alhaji Bashir Tofa of National Republican Convention (NRC).

The step to recognise June 12 as Democracy Day ought to have been taken since, but Chief Obasanjo may have refused to do this out of petty jealousy for the person of Abiola. Imagine a Yoruba man from the same state as Abiola failing to recognise him, but a Fulani man from Katsina has done it.

But some Nigerians have insinuated that President Buhari took this step for political reason to get the votes from South-West and spite Obasanjo. Do you agree?

I agree with them. In politics, you must be smart to outwit your opponent. That means the opposition is not smart enough to take the right step at the right time. With this, every average Nigerian will vote Buhari for removing shame from their faces. It is a thing of pride to us that our late son has joined the league of past head of state, a thing Obasanjo would have done but couldn’t out of hatred and jealousy.

Come to think of it, (Goodluck) Jonathan tried to immortalise Abiola by naming Unilag after him, but enemies of democracy scuttled that arrangement. In fact, I commended President Buhari for using executive order instead of consultation. Consultation would have run into the same hurdle that ruined Jonathan’s initiative on Abiola. I can assure you that more political moves to lure the South-east, South-south and other geopolitical zone is underway.

Were you surprised that the Late Gani Fawehinmi (SAN) also got an award?

No. The award bestowed on Gani is a well-deserved one. Remember that the award was given to him by the late Yar’Adua and he rejected it. Why? If Abiola had been honoured by Yar’Adua, Gani would have followed suit. So in this case, President Buhari honoured Abiola, Gani and others who fought for democracy and I am sure if Gani was to be alive today, he would accept the award wholeheartedly.

Do you think Kingibe deserves that award?

Looking at his political antecedent, maybe he should not have been honoured but by the virtue of the fact that he was the vice president-elect to Abiola in that election, so automatically he should enjoy all the benefits that go with that office.

But the Southeast is saying, Prof. Humphrey Nwosu, the then electoral umpire should not have been left out of the honour’s list, what’s your take on this matter?

Honestly speaking, Prof.  Nwosu is one of my mentors. Like I said when he was appointed NEC chairman then, I had confidence in his ability to deliver. He deserved to be honoured. We will continue to speak with President Buhari to see the reason why the former NEC boss should be honoured. He didn’t compromise. If he had compromised, he would have stopped the announcement of the result. But he stuck out his neck to announce all the results. For this singular reason, I think he deserves to be recognised. June 12 is symbolic just like Prof. Nwosu. So without him, Abiola’s mandate wouldn’t have been realised.

As the person who organised that election don’t you think IBB too deserves mention?

If there is anything IBB deserve, it is to retrieve the GCFR from him because of his act of cowardice. In many of his interview, he said he annulled the election because of fear of young officers in the military who threatened to kill him if Abiola becomes the president. So such person doesn’t deserve the honour of valour at tall.

Using Agbara Community in Agbara Igbesa LCDA, would you say APC has done well in the past three years?

In fact, I am ashamed to identify myself as APC member in my community because our people are disappointed in the leadership style of Senator Ibikunle Amosu for his gross negligence of Ogun West senatorial district. Today roads are in bad shape and economy of the people in the area has come to a halt.

Is Senator Olamilekan Adeola still in the governorship race?

As a member of APC and a member of Yayi forum, I am telling you that Senator Olamilekan Adeola is in the Ogun governorship race. Recently he addressed his supporters in Abeokuta where he reaffirmed his stance to run for the governorship race in 2019. The news that Yayi is no longer in the race is from detractors and come 2019, he will prove his worth at the poll.   (The Sun)
