          Cameroun:Soixante-dix-neuf (79) élèves ont été enlevés lundi dans la région du Nord-Ouest du Cameroun, le plus important kidnapping dans cette zone anglophone depuis le début du conflit entre des séparatistes et l'armée      Cache   Translate Page      
L’image contient peut-être : 7 personnes, personnes assises
Soixante-dix-neuf (79) élèves ont été enlevés lundi dans la région du Nord-Ouest du Cameroun, le
plus important kidnapping dans cette zone anglophone depuis le début du conflit entre des séparatistes et l'armée, à la veille de la prestation de serment du président Paul Biya.
Ce type d'enlèvement de masse d'élèves est sans précédent au Cameroun. Il est pratiqué dans le nord du Nigeria voisin par le groupe jihadiste Boko Haram comme à Chibok où plus de 200 jeunes filles avaient été enlevées dans leur internat en 2014, suscitant l'indignation du monde entier.
Outre les 79 élèves, le principal de la Presbyterian Secondary School de Bamenda (capitale régionale du Nord-Ouest), un enseignant et un chauffeur ont également été kidnappés par des hommes armés non identifiés, a indiqué à l'AFP une source gouvernementale camerounaise.
"Les recherches pour retrouver les otages ont été lancées, la mobilisation est totale", a ajouté cette source qui s'exprimait à l'issue d'une réunion de crise.
"L'établissement est quadrillé par les forces de sécurité. Nous n'y avons pas accès", a précisé la source proche de l'établissement.
L'enlèvement des élèves dont les âges n'ont pas été dévoilés a été confirmé par une source proche de l'établissement et une source sécuritaire.
Dans une vidéo de 6 mn obtenue par l'AFP, onze garçons d'une quinzaine d'années déclinent un à un leur identité et indiquent avoir été enlevés à la Presbyterian Secondary School de Bamenda par les "Amba boys", les séparatistes anglophones.
"Nous allons ouvrir nos propres écoles ici, nous allons rester ensemble et combattre pour l'+Ambazonie+", l'Etat fantasmé que les séparatistes entendent créer, indique un homme au micro du téléphone filmant la scène.

La vidéo n'a pu être authentifiée de source indépendante.
"Plus de 700 élèves" étudient à la Presbyterian Secondary School, selon le site web de l'établissement qui souligne recevoir des élèves "de toutes les origines religieuses et linguistiques du Cameroun".
"Tout ce que nous savons c'est que les élèves enlevés seraient essentiellement des garçons", a précisé la source proche de l'établissement.
- Écoles visées -
Cet enlèvement de masse survient à la veille de la prestation de serment du président Paul Biya, 85 ans, au pouvoir depuis 1982, réélu pour un septième mandat avec 71,28% des votes.
"Des enfants sont une fois de plus victimes d'une crise qui n'est pas la leur. RIEN ne peut justifier l'enlèvement d'enfants innocents!", a réagi sur les réseaux sociaux Allegra Maria Del Pilar Baiocchi, coordinateur humanitaire de l'ONU pour le Cameroun.
Dans la même région du Nord-Ouest du Cameroun, le sous-préfet de l'arrondissement de Noni a également été enlevé dimanche.
Dans les deux régions anglophones du Nord-Ouest et du Sud-Ouest, une crise socio-politique sans précédent s'est installée fin 2016. Elle s'est transformée fin 2017 en conflit armé.
Des affrontements entre armée et séparatistes, regroupés en groupes épars dans la forêt équatoriale, s'y produisent quasiment tous les jours depuis plusieurs mois.
Les séparatistes ont décrété un boycott des établissements scolaires, estimant que le système scolaire francophone marginalise les étudiants anglophones.
Les attaques de séparatistes armés contre des écoles sont nombreuses depuis le début du conflit.
Mi-octobre, six élèves avaient été enlevés dans une attaque de lycée à Bamenda, selon des sources concordantes. Les autorités avaient démenti.
Le jour de la rentrée scolaire début septembre, un directeur d'école a été assassiné, un professeur mutilé et plusieurs lycées attaqués.
- Bandes armées et pillards-
Le conflit armé a redoublé d'intensité dans la région du Nord-Ouest après plusieurs mois d'accalmie, les affrontements s'étant concentrés durant l'été dans la région du Sud-Ouest.
Le 30 octobre, un missionnaire américain a été tué par balles dans son véhicule à Bambui, en banlieue de Bamenda. Les raisons de son assassinat restent inconnues, mais l'Etat a accusé les "terroristes" d'être à l'origine de sa mort alors que Washington a évoqué des "tirs croisés".
Selon des sources concordantes, aux séparatistes armés se sont ajoutés des bandes armées qui rackettent les populations et les entreprises.
Les autorités, qui refusent le dialogue avec les séparatistes qu'elles qualifient de "terroristes", ont procédé depuis début 2018 à un important déploiement de forces de sécurité pour "rétablir l'ordre".
Plus de 175 membres des forces de défense et sécurité camerounaises ont perdu la vie dans ce conflit, ainsi que plus de 400 civils, selon les ONG.
Dans la zone, plus de 300.000 personnes ont fui les violences, pour la grande majorité en brousse et dans les grandes villes des régions voisines, et d'autres sont parties au Nigeria voisin.

          Don’t Forget Leah Sharibu! - An Article By Tony Ogunlowo      Cache   Translate Page      
On the 19th of February this year, more than a hundred girls were kidnapped from the Government Girls Science and Technology College, Dapchi in Yobe state by a faction of the dreaded Boko Haram. Five weeks later, 105 girls were released, 5 had died in captivity and one girl was held back.

The name of the girl held back is Leah Sharibu, only 14 years old at the time, and her captors refused to release her because she refused to convert to Islam.

Eight months on and she is still being held against her will with her captors threatening to execute her at any time: they have already executed two Red Cross health workers kidnapped earlier this year.

Lai Mohammed, the Minister for Information and Culture, has recently said that the government was doing everything within their power to secure her release: but considering the ongoing Chibok girls saga this can mean virtually nothing substantial is being done. Politicians will always say one thing and do something else – or do nothing at all. Hopefully she won’t be used as a political bargaining tool in the run-up to the 2019 elections.

For such a young girl to put her life on the line for her faith I don’t see any of the so-called ‘Men-of-God’ in Nigeria lining up to fight for her release – or even mention her( Pastor Adeboye only mentioned her briefly in a sermon in March and that was it!). Is this because they are too busy collecting tithes, faking miracles or pocketing backhanders from politicians? Or are they too busy trying to win more souls to their churches (- to pay more tithes!) they can afford to ignore the plight of one deeply religious girl?

By refusing to convert to Islam and facing an uncertain future, Leah has displayed more courage than most people. How many people in her predicament would resist the urge to convert to Islam just to get out of there? ( I know I would! I would convert fast, call myself ‘Mohammed’ and run like a mad-man as soon as they released me!). How many of our so-called ‘Men-of-God’ would be brave enough to hold on to their faith faced with such a predicament? It’s one thing to hold a Bible and preach to a multitude and another thing to be prepared to die for what you believe in.

Recently the kidnappers have issued a demand for N100bn ransom for her release – a ludicrous amount -  and her family are busy running around trying to raise some money to appease her captors. None of our over-paid, under-worked and ‘too-rich’ politicians have stepped in to help. Neither have any of the so-called ‘Men-of-God’ either. It would be good if our pastors, Defenders and Preachers of the Faith, dipped into all the tithes they’ve been collecting from people all these years and find a way to pay her ransom – and help her family financially: it would be the Christian thing to do. Or are they waiting for her to become a martyr so they can use her name to preach?

This poor girl must not be allowed to become another statistic of the murderous Boko Haram campaign !

There are influential politicians out there who can affect her release straight away but they are too busy buying up votes ahead of the impending 2019 elections to do anything. There are top ‘Men-of-God’ out there who have the Presidents’ ear but instead of fighting for her release they are only interested in engaging in  photocalls to further their own popularity .

Something needs to be done.

          NLC Suspends Nationwide Strike As FG Agrees To Pay N30,000 Minimum Wage      Cache   Translate Page      
  
The organised labour unions have called off the planned nationwide industrial action initially scheduled to commence today to press home workers’ demand for a new national minimum wage.
 
The National Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, announced the suspension last night in Abuja at the end of the last meeting of the tripartite committee set up to come up with the new minimum wage.
 
Wabba said the decision to suspend the action was reached after agreements were reached and documents signed.
 
“Having reached this position and agreements signed, the proposed strike action is hereby suspended,” he said.
 
Wabba however, refused to disclose the figure of the new minimum wage arrived at by the committee.
 
He said the figure would only be made public after the committee’s report would have been presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by 4.15pm on Tuesday.
 
According to him, only one figure would be presented to the President.
 
Daily Trust however, authoritatively gathered that the government agreed and signed the N30, 000 demanded for by the workers.
 
Two union officials and a senior government official confirmed the N30,000 agreement.
 
The Chairman of the committee, Amma Pepple, expressed delight that their assignment had been concluded.
 
“I am happy to report to you that we have concluded our assignment and we will submit our report to the President by 4.15pm on Tuesday.

"We will reveal the figure at the presentation,” she said.

          Why Wait Three Years To Present Forged WAEC Certificate? – Charlyboy To Buhari      Cache   Translate Page      
Maverick entertainer and co-convener of OurMumuDonDo movement, Charles Oputa, also known as Charlyboy, has claimed that the attestation of result issued to President Muhammadu Buhari by the West Africa Certificate Council Examination, WAEC, is fake.
WAEC, through its Registrar, Iyi Uwadiae, had last week Friday, issued an attestation of result to Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Reacting to the result, Charlyboy wondered why it took Buhari three years to present a forged certificate.
In a tweet, the Maverick entertainer also described Buhari as lifeless. 
He wrote: “After wasting our money, hiring plenty dozens of lawyers, it took you almost three years to present a forged certificate. “Your lifelessness no get rival. You no even get shame. I no blame you, I blame us, Mumu Nigerians, this certainly cannot be the best from our northern brothers.”

          Prince Charles Set To Visit Nigeria - British High Commissioner Reveals       Cache   Translate Page      
 
Prince Charles and his wife, Princess Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwal
 
The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright, announced in Abuja on Sunday that Prince Charles would engage in peace-building activities, including addressing the persistent attacks of herdsmen on farming communities in Nigeria.
 
The Prince of Wales and his wife, Princess Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, are expected in Nigeria from November 6 to November 8 in a high profile visit during which the royals would also have audience with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.
 
Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) ahead of the visit, Mr Arkwright said that one of the events on the agenda was for the prince to discuss practical solutions to alleviating the tensions, arising from the activities of herdsmen.
 
Herdsmen have launched a deadly onslaught on farming communities in Nigeria in recent years, raising concerns over the future of agriculture in a nation, having majority of its populace engaged in subsistence agriculture.
 
“People do want to come together and if we can provide that kind of environment then hopefully, we can come up with some ideas and solutions to resolving some of these conflicts.

“Some of the issues like the farmers/herders crisis are deep-rooted and are about the economy, land resource, climate change and cultural issues.

“The Prince of Wales will be looking at the causes, talking to people who are working in this area and together, seeing if we can find solutions and move on.”
 
Mr Arkwright said that addressing the root causes of conflicts would lead to a peaceful and more prosperous Nigeria and also become beneficial to the relations between Nigeria and Britain.
 
He noted that the visit was also aimed at strengthening the existing ties between Nigeria and Britain as members of the Commonwealth.
 
The prince, who took over as the Head of the 53-member Commonwealth of Nations last April, succeeding his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, has already visited 44 African nations.
 
“Prince Charles has not been here since the past 12 years. 2006 was the last time he was here and the Duchess of Cornwall, has never been to Nigeria. So it is about strengthening ties, particularly people-to-people ties.

“We want to ensure that through the Commonwealth, which is another theme of the prince’s visit, we develop links to develop relationships whether in trade, environment or in education, all of which are important to the future of the Commonwealth and to the future of Nigeria.”
 
The top diplomat said that other events lined up on the agenda of the visit would focus on culture, music, fashion, among others.
 
“Prince Charles will be talking about rural livelihoods, agriculture, the environment, some of the passions that he has which is so relevant to Nigeria today and to young people and the importance of getting young people into jobs.

“One of his passions as well is how do we build the skills of young people so that they will be equipped for the world.

“There is a whole range of interests that he has and I think Nigeria is a wonderful place to come to because it brings together all of these interests.”
 
The duchess is also to engage in literary activities with children and some Nigerian authors, while the prince would meet with traditional rulers and hold peace-building meeting with Nigeria Working Group on Peacebuilding and Governance.

          Former Petroleum Minister, Diezani To Be Extradited From Britain To Face Trial In Nigeria      Cache   Translate Page      
Former Petroleum Resources Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke is to be extradited from Britain to face trail in Nigeria, The Nation learnt yesterday. The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is to approach Attorney-General of the Federation Abubakar Malami (SAN) this week with a request to file charges against Mrs Alison-Madueke based on its findings.


As part of its investigation, the EFCC has traced N47.2 billion and $487.5million to the ex-minister, it was gathered.

Besides, about N23,446,300,000 and $5milion (about N1.5billion) have been located in various Nigerian banks.


But only about $37.5million Banana Island property has been finally forfeited by the ex-minister.

Justice Chuka Obiozor of the Federal High Court in Ikoyi, Lagos, ordered the final forfeiture of the property.

According to a fact-sheet The Nation stumbled on, the EFCC has concluded the investigation of the allegations against Mrs Alison-Madueke.

More than 50 suspects in some of the cases linked with her have been arraigned in court, especially the alleged N23.29billion 2015 poll bribe.

The EFCC review team felt it will be “in the interest of justice to extradite the ex-minister to Nigeria for trial”. She is believed to be in Britain.

Some of the investigated allegations against the ex-Minister, with substantial evidence, include the following:

  • release of $1.3b NNPC cash to the Office of the national Security Adviser (ONSA) in 2014 to fight kidnapping in Niger Delta;
  • whereabouts of $18.5billion earnings by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC);
  • $15.8billion NLNG dividends  between 2000 and 2014( especially about $9b component between 2010 and 2015);
  • $1.7billion oil contracts involving Mrs Alison-Madueke and two business associates;
  • N23.29b 2015 poll bribery scam;
  • $37.5m property on Banana Island; and
  • acquisition of many properties at home, in Britain, and in the UAE
A source, who spoke in confidence, said: “The EFCC has reached a convenient bend to request for the extradition of Diezani from the UK. Most of the cases against her have reached maturity level for her trial at home.


“The commission will formally approach the Attorney-General of the Federation, Mallam Abubakar Malami( SAN) to assist it to invoke the extradition treaty between Nigeria and the UK against Diezani.

“Through the office of the AGF, appropriate charges will be filed in court to commence the process for the extradition of the ex-Minister.”

Responding to a question, the source added: “The extradition process is without prejudice to the ongoing investigation of Diezani in the UK.

“The US end of Diezani probe has been done. The EFCC has also hauled evidence to the UK to assist the authorities. Some detectives from the UK have visited this country too.

“For the Nigerian flank of the probe, it is necessary to extradite Diezani to answer allegations against her.”

The source, however, added that the AGF has the final say on whether or not to initiate the extradition process. He stressed that all the allegations against the former minister are within the extradition treaty between Nigeria and the UK.

          Serving Policeman, Two Others Arrested For Armed Robbery      Cache   Translate Page      
Operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Imo State Police Command, have arrested a serving policeman, Chibuike Omego, and two others for alleged involvement in armed robbery. The state Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi, said the cop and two others – Ebuka Nwosu and Anayo Zeigbo – were arrested between October 31 and November 2 in Enugu and Bayelsa states, respectively.

The CP stated that the suspects were tracked down by the F-SARS operatives for robbing the driver of a serving Chief Magistrate, Chika Ezerioha, in Imo State.

The CP, who spoke with Southern City News on Sunday, said, “At Uwani in Enugu State, and Yenagoa in Bayelsa State, from October 31 till November 2, F-SARS operatives, coordinated by its Commander, Godfrey Victor, arrested one serving policeman, Omego Chibuike, 24.

“He was serving at the Ogui Police Station in Enugu State before his arrest. The other suspects are Nwosu Ebuka, 25, of Uwani Police Barrack in Enugu State, and Anayo Zeigbo from Enugu State, but resident in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

“They were arrested in connection with a case of armed robbery. It is important to note that on October 6, 2016, at Egbeada by Nkoromi filling station near the flyover in Imo State, one Robert Ekeh, a driver to Chief Magistrate Chika Ezerioha, was robbed at gunpoint and his Toyota Avenza car, golden colour, with registration number: IMSJ 148, was taken away.

“The suspects have confessed to their involvement in the crime. Upon recovery and in order to evade arrest, the car registration number was changed to MUS 986 FK. Effort is on to arrest one Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps operative, who is one of the main suspects.”

Galadanchi stated that the investigation, which spanned over two years before the suspects were arrested, was an indication that the community policing strategies of the Inspector General of Police being implemented by his command were effective.

“If we can arrest one of our own in connection with a crime, that means that nobody is above the law. We are committed to crime fighting and making sure that the Yuletide season is crime-free in Imo State,” the CP added.

          Presidency And WAEC Disagree On President Buhari's Certificate      Cache   Translate Page      


 
The controversy surrounding the issuance of certificate to President Muhammadu Buhari by the West African Examinations Council has taken a new twist as Presidency on Saturday, disagreed with WAEC on the reason for the issuance of the Attestation of Results.
 
According to Punch, while the Presidency insisted that Buhari didn’t apply for the results of the West African School Certificate Examination, which he claimed to have sat for in 1961, the examination body said the document was issued because the President applied for it.
 
WAEC’s spokesman, Damianus Ojijeogu revealed this in an interview with Punch on Saturday.
 
Ojijeogu, in the interview said, “We would not have given him the document if he didn’t apply. It is only Buhari or a court that can ask for the results. There is no other person. So he asked for it.”
 
Also, WAEC said in issuing an Attestation of Results to replace a lost or missing WAEC certificate, the subjects, where the candidate had F9, would no longer be captured.
 
WAEC Nigeria said these on its Twitter handle, @waecnigeria, on Saturday, while answering questions from several Nigerians on the omission of F9 from Buhari’s attestation.

“That is WAEC Twitter handle. It is correct,” Ojijeogu added, confirming the authenticity of the post on the handle.
 
The documents were presented to the President at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, during a courtesy visit by a delegation of WAEC led by its Registrar, Dr. Iyi Uwadiae.
 
Uwadiae was accompanied by the Head, National Office, WAEC, Olutise Adenipekun; Head, Public Affairs, WAEC, Abiodun Aduloju; and the Zonal Coordinator, WAEC Abuja, Olufemi Oke.
 
Buhari received the documents amidst the controversy generated over his claim in his details presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission that his credentials were with the Military Board.
 
The board had subsequently declared the President’s certificate missing, hence the need for him to get an attestation and a confirmation.
 
Earlier on its Twitter handle on Saturday, the examination body had stated, “You cannot apply for Attestation of Results or any other document if you have not registered and sat for the examination.
 
“The documents for application are a letter of application, police report on lost or damaged certificate, photocopy of lost or damaged certificate, two recent passport-sized photographs of the candidate, sworn affidavit for collection of attestation of results and administrative fee of N20,000.”
 
But the Presidency, which spoke through Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said the initiative to make the documents available to the President was that of the examination body.
 
Shehu, in an interview with SUNDAY PUNCH on Saturday, said WAEC authorities made it clear that they read about the controversy generated by the President’s missing certificate and saw the need to save the council’s integrity.
 
The presidential spokesman added, “No, the President did not apply for the documents. I made this clear in an opinion I wrote on Friday.

“The presentation of the documents to the President was strictly an initiative of WAEC.

“They said they read about the controversy on the pages of newspapers and saw the need to save the integrity of the council.”
 
Shehu had, in an opinion, titled ‘President Buhari, WAEC and PDP’s toxic air’, on Friday, quoted the examination body as saying that the controversy concerning Buhari’s school certificate was embarrassing and felt a sense of duty to produce and deliver the documents to him.
 
He had said, “This is a god-send, with WAEC being a non-political entity. This should put to rest the absurd allegations by the Peoples Democratic Party, brought up again and again, that he (Buhari) did not attend a secondary school.”
 
WAEC said the controversy surrounding the President’s picture was due to a guideline that the council used the photograph of the applicant for the attestation and not the pupil’s picture as of the time of sitting for the examination.
 
WAEC also said it did not issue the attestation of results to Buhari in 2015 because there was no application for it.
 
It said, “WAEC does not record fail in certificates. He (Buhari) did not apply for it in 2015. In August 2015, the council introduced Attestation of Results that can be obtained on request and that can serve as a replacement for lost or missing certificates.

“It should be the passport photo he (Buhari) submitted during the application for Attestation of Results. Attestation of Results carries passport of the candidate’s application when he or she applied. Candidates were first issued Attestation of Results by WAEC Nigeria in 2015.

“What we presented to President Buhari on Friday was a Statement/Attestation of Results and not a certificate. Subjects that a candidate had F9s in are no longer captured in certificates or Attestation of Results.”

          Confusion As Father Cancels Daughter's Wedding On D-Day Without Prior Notice      Cache   Translate Page      
A wedding ceremony came to a dramatic end in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, on Saturday, when father of the bride suddenly called off the wedding of his daughter, Oluwaseun Adugbe to his fiancée, Tunji Curtis, a few hours to the commencement of the ceremony.

Mr Adugbe, a native of Edo State and father of the bride was said to have announced that the wedding would no longer hold and directed her daughter to return all the goodies brought by the groom’s family to them immediately without giving any reason.

Members of the groom’s family, who had arrived from Lagos in the early hours of Saturday, were said to have been left in shock and could not understand why the family of the bride would cancel their daughter’s wedding without any prior notice.

They were said to have been told that the wedding could no longer hold and that all preparations should be suspended. The father insisted that no marriage would hold in his house and that he would not be a party to the union.

Sunday Tribune learnt that Tunji and Oluwaseun have been dating for about five years and their relationship has produced a child, who will clock five in a few months.
When pressed by Tunji’s family for reasons for his would-be father-in-law’s actions, it was said he had accused Tunji of failing to honour a meeting with other members of the family on Friday, a development which left them with no option but to cancel the wedding.

Sunday Tribune gathered that Tunji arrived at his fiancée’s family house on Friday evening with no inkling that his wedding would be called off the next day.

According to him, he arrived in Ibadan on Friday morning and was asked by the bride’s father to come for what he described as a crucial meeting with other members of the family, but failed to meet up with the 1p.m appointment due to other engagements.

He claimed that he arrived late at his fiancée’s house on Friday, but no one told him the wedding had been cancelled as preparations for the next day had begun.

He claimed that he had no problem with his fiancée’s father and could not understand why such a drastic action would be taken without his being informed. He added that his wife to-be could not explain the rationale behind her father’s decision.

“This is shocking. I don’t believe this is truly happening, because my wife and I had no issues at all and I can’t remember having any issue with her father. In fact, I sent money to her father last week Thursday as part of my contributions towards the wedding,” he said.

 
Distraught Tunji, who was almost moved to tears while speaking with Sunday Tribune, said no one could explain to him what went wrong as things were still not cleared to him as of the time he was talking.

According to him, “I asked my father in-law what went wrong; he told me that I failed to honour a meeting yesterday. I tried to explain to him that I was extremely busy making sure that everything was in place so that we could have a smooth celebration.”

Asked what his next plans would be, Tunji simply said: “ Right now, I just want to forget about this drama and cool off. I will think of the next thing to do when I wake up tomorrow.”

Also speaking with Sunday Tribune, Tunji’s elder sister, Abibat, who came to Ibadan with about 15 persons, including family members and friends, said she was disappointed by the actions of the bride’s family, adding that: “You can imagine the excuse that they gave for the cancellation of the wedding. I have never seen any family that is as irresponsible as this. I don’t blame them; I blame our son, who took the wrong step. The wedding is over and we will be going back to Lagos anytime from now,” she lamented.

Another member of the family, Olayinka Ogunbajo, who brought the wedding cake from Lagos said the family members met the father of the bride on their arrival from Lagos with the cake, saying “the father told us where we would keep the cake on Friday. He welcomed us heartily into his house and there was no reason for us to think otherwise. On getting here this morning, we were told that the wedding had been called off. I am speechless.”
At the bride’s family house in Oshodi area of Felele Rab, where Tunji in company with his friends and family members were told  that the wedding had been cancelled, residents and other well-wishers lamented bitterly.

The atmosphere was pensive when Sunday Tribune arrived at the house of the bride as no one was willing to disclose what had happened. People could be seen muttering words that suggested that all was not well between the two families.

Some members of the family were seen moving their gifts and other foodstuffs back into their cars as they blamed the bride’s father for ruining their day of joy.

However, some residents of the area cashed in on the moment as they were seen with polythene bags filled with cooked meat meant for the celebration.

One of them, who spoke with Sunday Tribune, said since the wedding had been cancelled and everybody was confused, “their pain is our joy”.

Efforts to speak with the bride’s father proved abortive as he declined comment when Sunday Tribune approached him for his reaction in his house.

His response was “I am not ready to talk to anybody. Please go.”

The bride also declined comment.

          Malaysia-Based Nigerian Man Killed In Benin For Suspending Wedding Over Wife's Alleged Infidelity      Cache   Translate Page      
There was tragedy over the weekend for the family of Egom in Benin City as their Malaysia-based son, Olisemeka Egom was shot dead after he was said to have suspended his wedding when he discovered that his would-be wife carries three months old questionable pregnancy.

The 34 years old was shot dead in his family residence at Akugbe Street, Off Okunseri Street, Off Dumez road, Sapele road in the state capital in the presence of his father, would-be wife and their three-year old boy.

He was said to have returned home to marry the girl who had a baby boy for him and has been leaving with his parents since he traveled out last year.

“My son and the girlfriend Judith have not been quarreling before, but when my son arrived last August, he accused the girl of carrying another man’s pregnancy.

“The girl agreed but said my son was responsible. My son said it is impossible because he has not been around, the last time he visited Nigeria was July 2017.

“He said he would not go ahead with the wedding. So this was the issue on ground. 

He further accused the girl of complicity in the brutal murder of his son.

Police said a case of murder was reported and advised the bereaved family to come forth with information.

          'Only God Can Explain', Says Wife Of FRCN Driver Who Jumped Into Lagos Lagoon       Cache   Translate Page      
 
According to a report by Punch Meto, the family of Rauf Oladejo is currently in a state of confusion as to the reason why the sexagenarian would take his own life by jumping into the lagoon. The deceased, according to News Agency of Nigeria, was a driver attached to an Assistant Director in charge of the Information Communication Technology unit of the FRCN.
 
He was said to have been newly posted from the FRCN Training School located in Shogunle to the Broadcasting House in Ikoyi, Lagos.
 
According to reports, the driver had alighted from a brown Toyota Corolla car and jumped into the water, head-first on Friday morning.
 
It was learnt that Oladejo’s body was later recovered by a joint team of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Marine Police, Lagos State Waterways Authority and Rapid Response Squad, and later taken to the LASWA jetty at Ebute Ero.
 
PUNCH Metro reports that the family of the deceased is based in Ibadan, Oyo State, and that the father of eight had retired from the service of the FRCN earlier this year before being employed as a driver on an ad hoc arrangement.
 
Speaking with PUNCH Metro on the telephone on Sunday, Rauf’s wife, Zainab Oladejo, said she could not give an explanation as to why her husband decided to take his own life, adding that he was a peace-loving husband and father.
 
The distraught wife said, “God is the only one who sees the intention of his heart for choosing to take his own life; I don’t know what could have been his reason. We have been married for over 40 years and nobody ever tried settling a dispute between us.

“When he was leaving for Lagos on Sunday, he prayed for us and one of the children followed him to the park. He was a peace-loving man; he was not in the habit of fighting with anyone and anytime he had money, he would buy things for all the children around.”
 
The second son of the Ibadan, Oyo State indigene, Sheriff Oladejo, said his father was not suffering from any sickness, adding that lack of money was not a problem for him either.
 
He stated, “My father was not sick and he was not thinking about anything. If he was thinking about anything, he would have told me, because he did not hide anything from me. He did not have any money issue too, because if he needed money, he would call to tell us. Even the day his body was retrieved from the lagoon, more than N10,000 was recovered from his pocket.

“I believe that what is hidden to us as humans is open to God.”

          Identity Of Man Who Jumped Into Lagos Lagoon Revealed      Cache   Translate Page      
The man who drowned after he reportedly jumped into the Lagoon in Lagos on Friday has been identified as a staff of the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria. 

A staff of FRCN, who pleaded anonymity, told the News Agency of Nigeria that the deceased was a driver attached to an Assistant Director in charge of Information Communication Technology unit of the corporation.

The source said that the deceased was newly posted from the FRCN Training School located in Shogunle to the Broadcasting House in Ikoyi, Lagos

The source, however, described him as a gentleman. Tunji Disu, Commander of the Rapid Response Squad, told NAN that his men got to the scene almost immediately and invited marine police and local divers who recovered the corpse from the lagoon.

“The deceased parked the vehicle he was driving on the Third Mainland Bridge and told other occupants of the vehicle that he wanted to urinate

“The occupants were shocked as he dived into the Lagoon,” said RSS Commander, Disu, Assistant Commissioner of Police.

          Okorocha Is An 'Embarrassment' - Oshiomhole Insists Uzodinma Is APC Candidate For Imo State      Cache   Translate Page      
  
Speaking while addressing a press conference on Friday in Abuja, the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole attacked the Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, calling him an “emperor.”
 
According to PREMIUM Times, Oshiomhole, who was reacting to comments made by the governor on the outcome of APC primaries, described Okorocha as “an embarrassment” to the APC.
 
Recall that Okorocha on Thursday, after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari, said the party chairman is destroying the party with his method of handling party primaries.
 
And in a swift reaction on Friday, Oshiomhole accused the governor of imposition of candidates in his state.
 
Oshiomhole declared that the “NWC has met and we have upheld the result of the Gulak committee and we have prepared the name of Hope (Uzodinma) to be submitted to the INEC.
 
“If Governor Rochas chose to relocate to the (Presidential) Villa and use the ground of Villa to try to intimidate me to create a dynasty, I will – even on one leg but powered by the truth – uphold the best interest of APC members and indeed of APC people in Imo State.”
 
The national chairman, who has been accused of mishandling the party, assured Nigerians that his party will defeat the candidate of the main opposition People Democratic party (PDP) in next year’s presidential election.

Sun 4 Nov

One of the three happiest days of my life - our first Sunday in the new IPC building. Adult Sunday School in the old chapel, Arthur Keefer on Proverbs. He has a Cambridge doctorate on this and now he is chaplain and divinity teacher at Eton. Paul preached from Mat 11, John the Baptists questions about Jesus. It was emotional for preacher and this hearer. Paul thanked our building committee, five members, two of whom have now moved elsewhere. The building is in the 'far more abundant than you ask or think' category. The chapel was cold so we have some things to sort out and chairs to buy, but fellowship was extra happy and warm.
   My brother and sister in law returned to Harrogate after morning worship. I did tandoori chicken for the Keefers. He is American, she of Nigerian heritage and doing research into cystic fibrosis. They were formerly in Cambridge EPCEW and our other lunch guest, James Fowler is also American and formerly at Durham EPCEW.
   In the evening Paul preached on Balaam, Num 22 and I did my 12th man duty. When the elder due to preside at the table had forgotten so was unprepared, I was ready, willing and honoured to preside.

Mon 5th

          "Politics = Personal" is eating away at my marriage       Cache   Translate Page      
The election results of Nov 2016 were shocking for both me and my husband, but we're dealing with things differently. I'm worried about him, which in turn makes me worry for us.

I am angry at much of what I see in the news, but refuse to let myself ruminate. I won't let people who anger me live rent-free in my head, preferring instead to look for positive ways to give back to the community. Barring that, I can admit I'm not doing everything I can to be politically active and be the change I want to see in the world, so I try to accept the handful of people I know who have different priorities and thus are supportive of this administration. I've gone into forums to try to have respectful discussions with people who disagree with me - not very satisfying, but hey I made the effort.

My husband, on the other hand, has become angry and judgmental and weirdly confrontational. He has cut off his father, stepmom and the guy who was his closest friend for voting Trump - hasn't spoken to them in the last 2 years. He gets into lengthy arguments on Facebook with friends of friends - being so rude that his own friends who AGREE with his viewpoints are asking him to tone things down when he argues with their friends. He goes into the pages of old high school classmates connected to him on Facebook, takes screen captures of their profiles showing their political leanings and "outs" them in his own statuses. Yesterday he got into it with his cousin who simply posted a picture of herself with her Trump-supporting 80 year old father, commenting "Eff that guy! He's personally responsible for white nationalism, child separations, rape culture glorification, anti-conservation, dead Nigerians etc..." And it was an innocuous picture captioned "Love hanging out with my dad." After the heated exchange that followed, he wasn't satisfied that he'd made his point so he made another vague Facebook status passive-aggressively directed at his cousin -something about how "people should only spend time with good people, not bad people who are nice to them."

Then he gets stressed out about/can't let go of the conflicts he's having and asks me to help him calm down. He feels justified in being unpleasant and confrontational because he is so thoroughly offended by the politics of our time that he sees anyone supportive of the current administration as the enemy. He feels very righteous in his positions and anyone who disagrees deserves his ire.

Still, he wants me to help him feel better. He doesn't, however, want to hear from me that he brought any of his agitation upon himself. He wants my validation. His grievances are absent of self-reflection. "What's wrong with people?", he complains. "How can they go about their daily lives being so accepting of others when others have such disgusting views?"

Apart from his Facebook activism, I feel my husband does nothing to bring about change. He's not phone banking, registering voters, getting involved locally, supporting local poor families, battered women, homeless, etc. He doesn't avoid pollutants, recycle consistently, conserve energy or water (in our drought state). He doesn't give as heavily to campaigns and charities as I do.

In fact, at home, he's rather lazy, doing less than his share of chores (classic female emotional labor imbalance stuff), spending the rest of his non-work, non-Facebook time obsessed with the two cars he has and shopping for his next car. His kneejerk response in life is to find fault with anything that interferes with his desires and needs. He's likely to feel attacked by any attempt to point out ways in which he might be unfair.

So because I see his selfishness and shortcomings at home and interpersonally, I am the last person to have patience for his self-righteous lambasting of others. We've had a couple arguments about his conduct online. I've flat out told him I don't support his activities or his judgmental posturing. I can't even get him to throw away his own trash, and he wants fist bumps from me because he called out another friend for lacking accountability?!?

I do think it's important to speak out, but in a way that persuasive - that doesn't alienate the people most likely to be on your side.

His behavior...it's really wearing on our relationship. He's anxious, seething and eaten away inside from current events. I sympathize with his feelings but can't get behind the way he expresses them. I fear soon he's going to turn on me for not being supportive enough. I believe he's already resentful.

Does anyone see any way to turn things around? I'd do therapy with him, only he's not shown much ability to reckon with his own flaws. I do want to make this relationship work.

          Migrante spaccia, subito libero. E il giudice ordina: "La polizia gli ridia i soldi"      Cache   Translate Page      
Ci sono voluti mesi di indagini, mica solo qualche giorno. Però alla fine la polizia municipale di Treviso era riuscita a catturare un richiedente asilo dedito allo spaccio di droga. Un crimine "infame", come lo ha più volte definito il ministro Salvini. Peccato che lo sforzo degli agenti non sia bastato ad assicurare al pusher la permenenza dietro le sbarre. Anzi.I fatti risalgono a tre giorni fa, quando i quotidiani locali hanno diffuso la notizia dell'arresto da parte della polizia locale di un 21enne nigeriano richiedente asilo e ospite da due anni nella Caserma Serena di Dosson. La Municipale gli aveva messo gli occhi addosso già a luglio ma solo pochi giorni fa è riuscita a portare a termine l'operazione. Lo hanno visto nel centro storico in bicicletta, lo hanno bloccato e perquisito. Nelle tasche aveva qualcosa come 250 grammi di marijuana e una sorta di libro contabile dove - secondo i vigili - avrebbe tenuto i nominativi di altri stranieri cui forniva le dosi da spacciare. Il resto della droga, però, è stata trovata nella sua stanza alla Caserma Serena dove il migrante viveva ospite a spese dei contribuenti. Qui la polizia e la cinofila hanno scoperto altri 230 grammi di droga: in totale fa quasi mezzo chilo di droga. In camera poi è stato rinvenuta anche una carta prepagata, alcuni cellulari e diverse banconote (250 euro).Tutto bene quel che finisce bene, direte. O forse no. Perché lo spacciatore nigeriano è stato processato per direttissima e condannato dal giudice a due anni di carcere per detenzione di stupefacenti ai fini dello spaccio. Grazie ai benefici di legge, però, è subito stato rimesso in libertà con tanti saluti agli sforzi della Municipale. Non solo. Perché come se non bastasse, la toga ha anche ordinato alla polizia Locale di ridare all'immigrato i soldi, la carta prepagata e i vari cellulari trovati durante la perquisizione.Il sindaco si è infuriato: "Chiedo rispetto nei confronti delle forze dell'ordine e dei cittadini che ci chiedono sicurezza - ha detto Mario Conte (Lega) - Presenterò al Ministro dell"Interno Matteo Salvini una relazione dettagliata perché non è possibile buttare all"aria mesi di indagini per la mancanza di certezza della pena. Se viene fermato uno spacciatore con 500 grammi di droga, 250 euro in tasca e cellulari e di fatto risulta nullatenente non è possibile che venga dissequestrato il denaro". E pensare che per la Municipale si tratta di un grossista dello spaccio e non di un piccolo spacciatore. "Siamo allibiti - dichiara il Comandante Maurizio Tondato, come riporta TrevisoToday - Dopo mesi di pedinamenti, intercettazioni, ricerche sul campo e tante energie profuse, vediamo un importante grossista della droga del trevigiano che probabilmente non viene punito a dovere, dovendo noi come Polizia Locale restituirgli quanto sequestrato in precedenza perché non è certo fosse provente della sua attività di spaccio, nonostante il ragazzo avesse dichiarato di essere nullatenente".

          German Far Right Raises Profile      Cache   Translate Page      
Although the United States is not officially a nation based primarily on lineage and blood and soil, Germany is. There are apparently more than a few Germans who do not like the idea of sharing their country with non-Germans one bit. At all. The relatively recent influx of mostly non-European immigrants and migrants into Europe has been the single biggest boost to right-wing, reactionary and downright fascist political parties across the continent. As the video below the fold makes clear, as dislike for immigrants becomes more acceptable to vocalize, Nazi sympathizers and actual Nazis successfully shift the Overton window far enough to the right to include some even uglier ideas. 

Although for obvious historical reasons Europe in general and Germany in particular get most of the media attention for this sort of stuff there are places all over the planet where people make it clear that they aren't overly fond of THOSE people. THOSE people can of course be of any race or ethnicity and could even be (to me) visually indistinguishable from the people yelling for their expulsion. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the idea of Black South Africans chasing down and assaulting Black Nigerian or Black Zimbabwean immigrants or refugees.

It's important to keep in mind that we're not all the same, we can't all get along, and nations aren't disappearing any time soon. The noxious Steve King had it right when he said that European right-wingers and Nazi sympathizers would be Republicans if they were Americans. I think that most Germans have enough sense not to politically support would-be Nazis. That said though mass immigration from the Third World into Europe will continue to be a politically destabilizing event.

          Sick "scholarly" paper of the day says that Israel must be destroyed - and academics must do their part      Cache   Translate Page      
This academic journal article, in Settler Colonial Studies, was just published last week.



Here's the abstract in academic gobbledygook:

Seeing Israel through Palestine: knowledge production as anti-colonial praxis
Yara Hawari, Sharri Plonski & Elian Weizman
Published online: 31 Oct 2018
ABSTRACT
Knowledge production in, for and by settler colonial states hinges on both productive and repressive practices that work together to render their history and present ‘normal’ by controlling how, where, to and through whom they tell their story. This makes the production and dissemination of knowledge an important battleground for anti-colonial struggles. The State of Israel, in its ongoing search for patrons and partners, is focused on how to produce and appropriate ‘knowledge’, and the arenas in which it is developed and shared. In so doing, it works to reshape critique of its political, social and economic relations and redefine the moral parameters that inform its legitimacy and entrench its irrefutability. Inspired by existing literature on and examples of anti-colonial struggles, this paper challenges the modalities through which Israel produces and normalises the colonial narrative. By critiquing existing representations of the Israeli state – and the spaces and structures in which these take hold – our article contributes to the range of scholarship working to radically recalibrate knowledge of ‘Israel’ and ‘Palestine’. As part of this work, the article purposefully centres indigenous anti-colonial frameworks that reconnect intellectual analysis of settler colonial relations, with political engagements in the praxis of liberation and decolonisation.

The paper takes it as a given that Israel must be destroyed ("liberation and decolonisation") and wants to ensure that no one looks at it as anything other than an evil, artificial colonialist entry.

The paper starts off with a quote from Benjamin Netanyahu at the UN that it regards as the perfect example of how Israel is trying to fool the world into thinking that it is a liberal, normal state:

Ladies and gentlemen, we live in a world steeped in tyranny and terror where gays are hanged from cranes in Tehran, political prisoners are executed in Gaza, young girls are abducted en masse in Nigeria, and hundreds of thousands are butchered in Syria, Libya and Iraq, yet nearly half – nearly half of the UN Human Rights Council’s resolutions focusing on a single country have been directed against Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East; Israel, where issues are openly debated in a boisterous parliament, where human rights are protected – by independent courts, and where women, gays and minorities live in a genuinely free society.

The paper doesn't even attempt to refute Netanyahu's words. In the circles that these academics travel, facts aren't important. It is so axiomatic that Israel is inherently, uniquely evil that Netanyahu's words do not evoke the desire to argue with it as much as the desire to show that they prove that Israel is so bad that its prime minister is forced to divert the world's attention from its evil.

As with "pinkwashing" - the absurd concept that is roundly rejected everywhere outside the anti-Israel and academic worlds - anything that Israel does that is consistent with liberal values is really immoral, they just have to figure out how.

The article is also concerned that the field of "Israel Studies" helps to make Israel sound like a normal state. The authors are very concerned that academia itself cannot be objective in describing how evil Israel's colonialism is:
Given our discussion above of counter-hegemony – and the fact that hegemony is a field of struggle – can we then consider all spaces as potential sites for contestation? What tools do we have to turn the study of Israel into a platform for transforming settler colonial relations, when we are working from within one of the key centres of colonial hegemony, the academic arena? Again, this involves challenging how we work, whose voices are centred, and the connection we make between scholarship and praxis, between understanding settler colonialism and resisting it.
The point of these academics isn't to understand Israel - but to resist it.
The strategyof fomenting Indigenous studies as a starting point for studying the Israeli state and society (as part of critical Palestine Studies), is also a political endeavour. 
Throughout this article, we have been working towards a re-reading of Israeli state and society as part of critical Palestine studies; an epistemological starting point that would make visible and disrupt the hegemony increasingly held by Israel Studies in its reproduction of Israel as a ‘normal – if complex – modern state’, as posited in the quote that introduced this article. We have drawn on Indigenous studies and anti-colonial scholarship to make the point that the only way to do this, is to ensure that when we investigate the Israeli state and society, it is with the goal of its transformation. This is informed by a political commitment, requiring not simply that Israel is understood, but that scholars are in solidarity with its decolonisation.
If you are a scholar of Israel and not actively working to dismantle it, then you have no legitimacy in today's academic environment.

This paper freely admits that when the topic is Israel, academia is part of the "resistance" - meaning exactly what Hamas means when they use the term. There isn't even the pretext of objectivity or scholarship where Israel is concerned.

Fifty-five years ago today, the Beatles played the Royal Variety Performance.  It'd had been a swift rise to the top.  A year before, they had only just recorded their first single, and now here they were, dominating the British charts.  In a few months, they'd conquer America.

But the performance is best remembered for one thing--John Lennon's quip:

For our last number, I'd like to ask your help.  Will the people in the cheaper seats clap your hands?  And the rest of you, if you'll just rattle your jewelry?



He'd threatened to say it in a much nastier way, but the Beatles in 1963 wouldn't have done that, not even John.  You can see he knows he's being cheeky, and the audience loves it.

The Beatles were different in that they generally said what they wanted to, and didn't have managers that controlled them that way.  It was refreshing, though sometimes got them in trouble.

You may be thinking of John's statement about the Beatles being bigger than Jesus, but I'm not even referring to that.  That was from an old interview that hadn't caused much of a stir until it was reprinted and played up in America.  On the other hand, Paul was the first to admit he took LSD (though I believe John and George were more enthusiastic about it) and that was a big deal immediately.

When The Beatles got their M.B.E.s (making them members of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) in 1965, it was a big deal, and somewhat controversial.  They wouldn't have imagined then being flippant or dismissive about it.  But by 1969, they were so big, or maybe so jaded, the John returned his with a note to the queen:

I am returning my MBE as a protest against Britain's involvement in the Nigeria-Biafra thing, against our support of America in Vietnam and against 'Cold Turkey' slipping down the charts.

At this point, John was doing a lot of bizarre political stunts, though I have to admit, this one's pretty funny.

I wonder how the rest of the band felt about John.  Not that they could have done anything--he started the band, after all.  I wonder if they ever get tired of him going on like that?  I doubt it had much to do with them breaking up--that was probably going to happen sooner or later anyway.

          Chitwood Announced as Candidate for International Mission Board’s Presidency      Cache   Translate Page      

IMB CHITWOOD SPEAKSRICHMOND, Virginia—The International Mission Board trustees’ Presidential Search Committee announced Tuesday, Nov. 6, that the committee will recommend Dr. Paul Chitwood, 48, to be elected as the 173-year-old entity’s 13th president.

RICHMOND, Virginia—The International Mission Board trustees’ Presidential Search Committee announced Tuesday, Nov. 6, that the committee will recommend Dr. Paul Chitwood, 48, to be elected as the 173-year-old entity’s 13th president. The vote to elect Chitwood is scheduled for the Nov. 15 plenary session during the Nov. 14-15 IMB board meeting in Richmond. 

Paul Chitwood, currently executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, has been nominated as the 13th president of the Southern Baptist Convention International Mission Board.Paul Chitwood, currently executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, has been nominated as the 13th president of the Southern Baptist Convention International Mission Board.A former board chairman of trustees for the Southern Baptist Convention's global mission organization, Chitwood currently serves as executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, the state’s largest religious organization with 750,000 members in 2,400 churches and 70 associations. He has served in the role since 2011. 

For 18 years, Chitwood served as the pastor of local churches of varying sizes: First Baptist Church, Mt. Washington (2003-11), where he is a member; First Baptist Church of Somerset (1999-2003); First Baptist Church of Owenton (1995-99); and South Fork Baptist Church in Owenton (1993-95). As a pastor, his churches averaged giving 18.5 percent through the Cooperative Program.

During his pastorates, he served as chairman of the IMB trustees from 2008-10, part of his tenure as an IMB trustee from 2002-10. His overseas short-term mission involvement includes work in Brazil, Peru, India, China, South Africa, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Kenya, England, Spain, Germany and Haiti.

“A decade ago, I had the privilege of working with IMB President Jerry Rankin, Clyde Meador, Tom Elliff, and David Steverson to pen the IMB’s vision statement,” Chitwood said. “While the wording was and is important, it simply captures the vision God has graciously given us in His Word. It’s His vision, and the culmination of the work that He has been doing through His church and, since 1845, through Southern Baptists. Our vision is unchanged: a multitude from every language, people, tribe and nation knowing and worshiping our Lord Jesus Christ.”

‘We need him’

“It is so obvious that God has been preparing Paul for this role in so many ways,” said Dr. Rick Dunbar, chairman of IMB’s trustees and a member of the search committee from Madison, Mississippi. “Examine his work history, denominational experience, trustee background, educational history, leadership and team-building history; hear his heart for missions and the Lord, to be shared with the entire world; listen to his wife as she eagerly anticipates this role — and I think you will agree: We need him.”

Dunbar said the more the search committee talked, prayed and thought about Chitwood, “the more the entire committee has come together united in knowing he is God’s choice for our next president. He has the biblical foundation, a heart for missions and a proven track record of leading a big organization.” 

Dr. Chuck Pourciau, chairman of the Presidential Search Committee and senior pastor of Broadmoor Baptist Church in Shreveport, Louisiana, echoed Dunbar’s endorsement.

“Little did the Presidential Search Committee anticipate the meandering path that would be this search,” Pourciau said. “There were many twists and turns, but our commitment remained singular. It didn’t matter what path we took as long as we ended up in the right place. The right place is to locate and recommend to the trustees the person God had already chosen as the next leader of the International Mission Board.

“We are unanimously agreed that we have done just that in recommending to the IMB trustees Dr. Paul Chitwood as our next president. Dr. Chitwood is uniquely qualified to lead us into the next era of Southern Baptists reaching the nations. His missions heart and leadership acumen will serve us well in the years to come. I am eager to watch God work through him as he leads our international missions efforts. Yes, brothers and sisters, we did indeed arrive at the right place, and that right place is Dr. Paul Chitwood.”

‘Passionate about missions’

Paul ChitwoodPaul ChitwoodAs executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, Chitwood has led the organization to a greater focus on strengthening local churches, planting new congregations, evangelizing the unchurched, and shifting more funding to international missions. He identified the need to move more Cooperative Program funds from state mission budgets to the Southern Baptist Convention budget and, ultimately, to the IMB budget. Last year, the convention reported more churches planted and growth in the number of Kentucky Baptists involved in volunteer mission work in Kentucky and around the world.

In consideration of leading the largest denominational missionary-sending body among American evangelicals, Chitwood has stated that he is committed to the organization’s next executive vice president being someone with significant mission-field experience. Chitwood has traveled extensively overseas in support of the IMB and worked alongside IMB missionaries, Dunbar said, which gives him a view into the missionary life and task but also makes him realize how much he will depend on men and women who have long-term overseas experience.

“I am very happy to join with the rest of the Presidential Search Committee in recommending that Dr. Paul Chitwood be approved as our next IMB president,” said Duane Ostem, an IMB field leader from Asia who served on the committee to provide a field-based perspective. “Dr. Chitwood is passionate about missions. He understands the workings of the IMB. He loves missionaries. His humble but strong leadership style will enable him to work well with our Richmond personnel, our field missionaries, and our Southern Baptist churches. His vision for the future will inspire and guide the IMB as we seek to make disciples of all nations.”

By Chitwood’s request, pending trustee approval, Dr. Clyde Meador will remain in the President’s Office as interim EVP during the transition. Meador has served as IMB interim president since Sept. 27, 2018.

“I have known Paul for 16 years and have consistently been impressed by and thankful for his commitment to the spread of the gospel to the ends of the earth, as well as his excellent leadership skills,” Meador said. “When Paul was serving as chairman of IMB trustees, he became an integral part of the leadership team, even to the point of having a significant part in crafting our vision statement that continues as a guide even today.

“Paul’s keen insight, leadership strength, commitment to the Great Commission, humility, and understanding of the lost world that lies before us, as well as unusual knowledge of the SBC, all combine to make him the ideal next president of IMB.”

‘A proven leader’

Chitwood was Kentucky Baptist Convention president in 2005-06; first vice president in 2003-04; and president of the state pastors’ conference in 2002. He was chairman of the SBC Committee on Nominations in 2015-16, and he also has served on several other state mission committees and in associational leadership committees. He has served as a trustee of Crossings Ministries, Sunrise Children’s Services, Kentucky Baptist Foundation, Oneida Baptist Institute, Baptist Haiti Mission, and Bridges to Nigeria.

He is an adjunct professor of leadership at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He previously has been an assistant professor of missions and evangelism at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, University of the Cumberlands and Boyce College.

A native of Jellico, Tenn., Chitwood is a 1992 graduate of Cumberland College (now University of the Cumberlands), where he has served as a trustee. He earned a master of divinity degree from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1995 and a doctorate from the seminary in 2001. He currently is pursuing a master’s degree in nonprofit administration from the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame.

“As I have studied our IMB history and our past presidents, it is clear that God continues to build on the foundation laid down by so many,” Dunbar said. “I have served as a trustee under Jerry Rankin, Tom Elliff, David Platt and Clyde Meador. They are all different, but I believe that each was called to this position with a unique perspective and giftedness, and we thank God for all of them. Paul brings a unique perspective also. He is a proven leader, motivator, and mobilizer, he is committed to missions, and he gives his all to the pursuit of God’s will.”

Chitwood and his wife, Michelle, have been married for 25 years. Their family includes son Daniel, 22, and daughter-in-law Derrika; daughter Anna, 20; daughter Cai, 12; and a foster daughter, age 6, who they hope will soon join the family through adoption.

“Michelle, his wife, is fully committed to this role, and we see qualities in her that will compliment Paul in the president’s role,” Dunbar said. “She is eager to be an active part and sees this as a calling for her also. She embraces the challenges this role presents. She sees their family’s role not as a sacrifice but an opportunity. She will be a great asset to the IMB. You will love her.”

Transitional activity

On Feb. 12, 2018, former president David Platt asked trustees to begin their search for the next president of the mission entity. The trustees’ presidential search committee accepted presidential nominations through May 15, and a committee of more than a dozen trustees plus a former field leader have worked diligently since February. Trustees will vote on the recommendation of Chitwood as president during their plenary session, scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 15, at 10 a.m. EST. 

Prior to the vote, Southern Baptists will honor the appointment of new missionaries during a Sending Celebration in Richmond on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 7 p.m. EST. Join the celebration via Livestream. Forty-two Southern Baptists will be presented as candidates for appointment at the Nov. 14 meeting.

          Obasanjo May Withdraw His Support For Atiku      Cache   Translate Page      


 Obasanjo May Withdraw His Support For Atiku
Olusegun Obasanjo
 
The Arewa Consultative Forum(ACF) has disclosed that former president, Olusegun Obasanjo may withdraw his support for the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar before the 2019 elections.
 
Secretary-General of the forum, Anthony Sani  told Independent on Sunday;
 
“Former President Obasanjo is a factor in national politics having governed the country under both military and democracy. His commitment to one united Nigeria cannot be taken away from him, but whether such attributes can translate into electoral value is in doubt. More so that Obasanjo has been a product beyond himself.

“When the late Murtala Muhammed was assassinated in 1976, the military hierarchy at that time asked Obasanjo to take over as Head of State.

“It was not his efforts that got him the position. Also in 1999, the retired Generals and Northern leaders went and brought him out and made him the president. These are not his personal efforts. So, Obasanjo is a product of forces beyond him.”
 
He pointed out that despite Obasanjo's endorsement, the Atiku camp is not rejoicing yet because the former could change his mind at any moment.
 
“As to whether Nigerians will pander to the former president’s endorsement of the presidential candidate of the main opposition party is also in doubt, precisely because of his inconsistency that does not accommodate conviction and vision expected of a statesman of his status.

“Consider the former president tore his party card of PDP and wrote off both APC and PDP as unserviceable. He then formed a nonpartisan Coalition Movement which he later transmuted to a political party called ADC against his earlier ‘new year resolution’ not to be partisan.

“Former President Obasanjo said God would not forgive him if he endorsed his former VP for president, only for him to now leave his ADC and endorse Atiku.

“I believe not only Nigerians but even Atiku himself cannot bask in the glow of the endorsement by Obasanjo out of the fear that the manifest inconsistency can make him change his mind before the elections,” he said.

Tiwa Savage Becomes First Female To Win MTV Best African Act
Tiwa shows off her award
 
Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage has become the first Nigerian female artist to win the MTV Europe Music Awards (MTV EMAs) in the Best African Act category.
 
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Afro-pop singer snatched the record-breaking award at the 2018 MTV EMAs held on Sunday at the Bilbao Exhibition Center, Bilbao, Spain with several music stars across the world in attendance.
 
The African act category, in 2005, was infused into the MTV EMA to enhance musical alliances across borders, and promote cultural integrations.
 
NAN reports that until Tiwa’s win, three Nigerians had taken the award home including 2Baba in 2005, D’banj in 2007 and 2012; and Davido in 2017.
 
In 2018, Tiwa was nominated alongside fellow Nigerian act, David Adeleke, aka Davido; South Africa’s Distruction Boyz and Shekinah; Kenya’s Nyashinski and Fally Ipupa from the DRC.
 
Celebrating the award, Tiwa took to her Instagram page @tiwasavage to dedicate the win to African women and aspiring young girls.
 
She said, “Almighty God, you are so faithful. My savage soldiers did it for me.

“I have been through a lot but I have kept my head up and weathered the storm because I know some little girl somewhere is dreaming like I did,” Tiwa said.

However, the biggest winner at the awards night was the Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello.
 
She scooped four awards, winning “Best Song,” “Best Artist,” “Best Video” and “Best U.S. Act” in a show that featured a stellar performance from Janet Jackson.
 
Cabello, 21, who already led the pack at the MTV Video Music Awards in August, urged her fans in the United States to vote in the 2018 midterm elections as she walked the red carpet in the northern Spanish city of Bilbao, Reuters reported.
 
The singer, who rose to fame as a member of the girl group “Fifth Harmony,” formed on the U.S. edition of the X-Factor, said she relished being seen as a role model.
 
“I feel like the message for me has always been just like do what makes you happy, even if it’s scary, it’s worth it to take the risk because your happiness is your responsibility,” Cabello said.

“That’s always been my message and I talk about it a lot but I feel like it’s a good message. And yes, very important, go vote!” she said.

          Consultant at WaterAid Nigeria      Cache   Translate Page      
WaterAid is an international not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping the poor and marginalised people break free from poverty and disease, and change their lives for good through improved access to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. Since 1995, WaterAid has dedicatedly worked with the governments and people of Nigeria to support the implementation of sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) interventions and programmes.&nbsp;&nbsp;We are recruiting to fill the position below:Job Title: Consultant (Supervision of WaterAid Nigeria Water Facilities and Institutional Latrine Construction)&nbsp;Location:&nbsp;Kirfi LGA, Bauchi&nbsp;DetailsWaterAid aims at achieving sustainable access to clean water and sanitation in specific states in Nigeria. In line with this, WaterAid works in partnership the Local Government Authorities (LGAs) and the state Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agencies (RUWASSA).To achieve its objective, WaterAid Nigeria is implementing the Strengthening WASH Delivery System project in Bauchi State.

With respect to latrines, the dimensions and specifications were sometimes not followed by contractors, resulting in the latrines being poorly finished. Water schemes constructed sometimes failed resulting in further hardship for the intended beneficiaries. This situation, apart from leading to massive waste of resources also poses a great reputational risk for WaterAid Nigeria. As a key player in the WASH sector, the quality of WaterAid&rsquo;s work in Nigeria is critical in achieving its influencing objectives.

Cameroon School Kidnap: More Than 70 Pupils Seized in Bamenda
BBC World Service

In the video released of the children the man holding the camera turns it on himself at the end
Dozens of people, mostly school pupils, have been kidnapped from a boarding school in the west of Cameroon.

At least 79 students and three others, including the principal, were seized early on Monday morning in Bamenda, the capital of the North-West region, a government official has told the BBC.

Regional governor Adolphe Lele L'Afrique blamed separatist militias.

Cameroon's North-West and South-West regions have been hit by a secessionist rebellion in recent years.

Cameroon's English-speaking rebels

Militias, who have been demanding the independence of the two English-speaking regions, have called for a school boycott.

But no single group has said it carried out the kidnapping at Bamenda's Presbyterian Secondary School, which has pupils aged between 10 and 14.

A video of some of the children, believed to have been filmed by one of the kidnappers, is being shared on social media.

The students, all boys and crammed into a tiny room, all look nervous as the person holding the camera orders them to say their names and where they are from.

They also repeat the phrase: "I was taken from school last night by the Amba boys, I don't know where I am."

Amba is short for Ambazonia, the name of the new country that the separatists want to create.

One student, who managed to avoid capture by hiding under a bed, told the BBC that events unfolded quickly as the kidnappers entered the school.

"One of my friends, they beat him mercilessly. All I could think about was to just stay quiet. They threatened to shoot some people... all the big boys they rounded up, and the small ones they left them behind."

A teacher at the school described what she saw as she entered the principal's office after students had been taken from different dormitories.

"The military came in and went to the principal's house where we realised that her door was bashed and entered into, the glasses are still there on the ground," she told the BBC.

'Praying for the kidnapped'

The moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon, the Right Reverend Fonki Samuel Forba told the BBC that he had spoken to the kidnappers.

"They don't want any ransom. All they want is for us to close the schools. We have promised to close down the schools," he told the BBC.

"We hope and pray they release the kids and the teachers," he added.

A government official later said a massive search had been launched for the hostages involving the Cameroonian army. "Every man has been called in," the official said, according to AFP news agency.

It is not the first time students have been abducted in the area, known to be a stronghold of separatist fighters, reports the BBC's Ngala Killian Chimtom.

On 19 October, five students of the Atiela Bilingual High School were taken by unidentified gunmen. Their whereabouts are still unknown.

The separatists say that the Cameroon school system suppresses the English-speaking system that the North-West and South-West regions inherited from the British.

Separatist rebellion

The militias, who want to create Ambazonia, began to emerge in 2017 after a security force crackdown on mass protests, led by lawyers and teachers, over the government's alleged failure to give enough recognition to the English legal and education systems in the North-West and South-West.

The government was accused of relying heavily on people trained in the French legal and educational tradition to work in key posts and generally marginalising Cameroon's English-speaking minority, who make up about 20% of the population.

President Paul Biya, who has been in power since 1982, was recently re-elected for a seventh term with more than 70% of the vote.

Opposition parties allege that the poll was rigged, but legal attempts to overturn the result failed.

Africa's borders were "carved up" up by colonial powers

Colonised by Germany in 1884
British and French troops force Germans to leave in 1916
Cameroon is split three years later - 80% goes to the French and 20% to the British
French-run Cameroon becomes independent in 1960
Following a referendum, the (British) Southern Cameroons join Cameroon, while Northern Cameroons join English-speaking Nigeria

          Comment on How Apple News is gearing up to cover Tuesday’s U.S. midterm elections by Mike      Cache   Translate Page      
but you believe Trump tweets? Fox and Friends? Hannity? Limbaugh? Drudge? Breitridge Analytica? KGB Times? The Washington Post has tracked the lies coming from the White House, and they are unprecedented. Tricky Dick was more honest than Trump. As noted above, Trump discredits everyone because that way he can get away with anything. Hats off for full employment -- let's give Trump credit for that even though the trend is absolutely linear extending back to 2010 and the fact that actual job growth and wage growth lag significantly behind his outlandish campaign promises. On the other hand, the list of misdeeds and whiffed opportunities by Trump and his lieutenants is long. -once Trump bragged about stocks continuing to grow on his watch. Not anymore, the expensive sugar high is already wearing off. After spending $1.5 trillion of taxpayer money to corporations, their stock buybacks and executive bonuses have done nothing to maintain the rate of growth seen from 2009 through January 2018 - GDP growth, a crude macroeconomic measure if ever there was one, i also cited by Trumpanzees as being great. Never mind that growth under Trump's predecessor was consistently positive from 2010 on, with GDP growth peaks that exceeded Trump's in both 2011 and 2015. - Trump campaigned on balancing the budget then signed the biggest deficit budget in history - Trump whined incessantly about trade imbalance on the campaign trail -- and despite all the trade disruption, the trade deficit has actually grown 0.25% since Trump took office. - Trump commanded the ripping apart of immigrant families and detained children without supervision in tent camps but interestingly, the actual number of arrests and deportations has declined. Basically, Trump has driven illegal immigrants further underground, where law enforcement doesn't have the time or resources to unroot them. Instead Trump makes a big production of border harassment. - Trump has offered no immigration reform plan other than taller walls, undoing reasonable bills like DACA that allowed background-checked registered children to finish their educations in the USA - The revolving door of aides spins so fast that not even special agent Ivanka can keep up. - Trump has the audacity to meet Putin behind closed doors with no US aides present - Trump pulls out of international agreements left and right, putting international trade in turmoil and American farmers out of work - Trump erects unilateral tariffs then offers special exemptions for his hand picked favorites, skewing commodity markets and spurring price inflation that hurts American manufacturers and consumers - scandals like Pruitt's corruption, Price and Carson's huge expenses, and so forth are unending - cabinet officials with zero ability are put in charge of departments that need the most reform. end result is that idiots like deVos flounder attempting to push religion instead of recognizing the necessity of division between church and state. - hurricane damage comes again; Trump pretends Puerto Rico isn't part of the US - "Fire and Fury" leads to publicity photos with Trump liking the fat autocrat and .... nothing else happens - After much trade turmoil, NAFTA is rebranded with nothing but minor tinkering that, in a sane environment under a reasonable president, could have been implemented in a month quietly by competent trade negotiators - Syria remains a gaping wound on the planet, Trump avoids discussing it - military budgets continue to be bloated, Trump sent an additional 6162 troops into Afghanistan. American taxpayers maintain troops all over the middle east, Nigeria, holding a few lonely misguided guilty-until-proven-innocent muslims in Cuba, and sabre rattling elsewhere - Trump directly contradicts his staff repeatedly. - climate accords and TTP are proceeding without the USA involved to make meaningful amendments for the benefit of future Americans, essentially putting America at a disadvantage for future deals in these blocs - Trump has gone out of his way to insult former allies and piss all over the accomplishments of multinational organizations including NATO, the UN, and others. - Trump kissed the hem of Saudi dictator's robes, and being an oil addict, Trump has done nothing whatsoever to aid justice in response to what appears to be an international murder at the hands of Saudi officials - while tech giants play whack a mole with russian sponsored trolls, Mueller works to root out illegal behavior linked to the White House. Trumpanzees cover their eyes and yell, "nothing to see! nothing to see here!" while Trump does everything possible short of firing Mueller directly to derail the "witchhunt" that keeps finding witches. - with no plan for increasing inexpensive preventative healthcare for all Americans, the US is flooded with opiods, with death from cheap synthetic crap like Chinese fentanol pushing up death rates 27% in the last year. Trump does nothing. - Trump undermines American business with continued rhetoric based in isolationism. https://www.economist.com/graphic-detail/2018/11/06/tracking-america-in-the-age-of-trump Of course dumbocrats have no answers to the ills that plague the nation, but when the current president spends all of 2018 tweeting, TV watching, and campaigning rather than solving problems, then he should be graded on those results. Like Apple, America is coasting on past accomplishments. It is time for both entities to chart a better direction and take on the hard work of improving how we do things. I fail to see how Trump or Cook have been up to the tasks.

          SHOCKING: INEC Discovers 22 Polling Booths in Politicians' Residences       Cache   Translate Page      

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Akwa Ibom State has discovered 22 polling booths hitherto located in politicians’ houses.

The commission has equally relocated the affected polling booths to appropriate locations in different parts of the state.

The state Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Mr. Mike Igini revealed this at a news conference in Uyo, the Akwa-Ibom capital, on Saturday.

At the conference, however, the resident commissioner did not mention those private residences that had been used as polling units before now.

The resident commissioner said the relocation became necessary to forestall the influence of the election process by the owners of such buildings.

He disclosed that a total of 175,995 PVCs out of 1,893,379 delivered were yet to be collected by their owners in the state.

The INEC commissioner made known that only 4,346 out of 85,226 PVCs delivered to the state in the first quarter of this year were collected by their owners while 49,313 out of 127,880 delivered in 2017 were collected with only 1,663,725 out of 1,680,957 collected in 2015.

Igini added that INEC would continue to maintain neutrality in the election process and leave a legacy of free, fair and transparent elections that remain precedence on future elections in the state.

“In Akwa Ibom, votes would counts in 2019. As a people and as a commission, we remain committed to the legacy of bequeathing a transparent free and fair election. We have started the process and we hope to achieve this in line with our mandate,” the resident commissioner said.

He assured that the commission would conduct elections in the troubled Etim Ekpo and Ukanafun Local Government Area, noting that peace had gradually returned to the areas following the amnesty programme initiated by the state government.

According to him, it will no longer be business as usual for politicians who have perfected strategies to circumvent the electoral process stating the card readers have been reconfigured to reduce incidence of vote rigging during and after the election.

He, equally, added a platform has been developed to ensure that election results are transmitted electronically and on real time while efforts have been made to ensure that electoral officers would not have monopoly of election result sheets.

He REC urged politicians and elites “to play by the rules regretting that they remain the greatest problem of Nigeria. Electoral tribunals in the country will become useless if only politicians would accept polls results with a transparent process.

Igini said the preparations for the 2019 elections commenced in 2015 with Akwa Ibom and the other states of the federation keying into the Election Project Plan and indicated that the display of voters register would commence in all the 2,981 polling units of the state from next week.

Pointing out that over 1.6 million voters have been registered in the state, the resident commissioner said the figure could jump up to 1.8 million when the final figures are finally released in January next year.

          You’re a thief if you dump music for politics – Brymo says      Cache   Translate Page      
Nigerian singer, Olawale Ashimi, popularly known as Brymo has said musicians who “suddenly” leave their craft for politics are “thieves”.
Brymo says
The singer stated this in an interview with Sahara TV at the recently concluded 2018 Ake Books and Arts Festival. According to Brymo, musicians have many issues to address within the entertainment industry, and should focus on that, rather than “suddenly dumping music for politics”.
His words: “I think it is a very difficult move in the sense that there are years invested in every industry. So, you’ve been a musician for 10 to 15 years, and suddenly you dump that to go and become a politician and run for office. You’re just a thief, because there are issues in the entertainment industry you can take part in to fix. Why do you have to run for public office? There are things you can do as a musician in your own music industry and make things better there. If you cannot make things better there, how are you going to make things better in public office?
“I believe everybody should stay in their lane. Let musicians be musicians and let politicians be politicians; let everybody do their job. I have invested 15 years in music and I have no intention to throw all that away for another career. This is my career; this Brymo. I feel everybody should treat their music that way and leave politics alone for politicians.”
Brymo, who recently released his debut novel entitled ‘Oriri’s Plight’, eulogised the late Afrobeats maestro, Fela Anikulapo Kuti as the greatest musician whose music was not appreciated until he died.
“A lot of our parents were like ‘don’t listen to Fela’s music’. The government says ‘don’t go to Kalakuta Republic’. Everyone was against him and now everybody says he is the greatest. Same thing applies to us; you can not quantify what we are doing right now until when it is done. When the next generation gets here, then they will say these people did something that was amazing. Right now, the story is being told.


“I don’t think there is any need for comparison, because we have had more of the most skillful Nigerians now than then. There are a lot of amazing, talented people, but have we been able to show, to come out, to be bold like they were? Not so much. However, skill-wise, I think we’ve been able to match the last generation. But we need to show more buzz; we need to take the initiative and be musicians,” he said.

          “There is no part of the country I haven’t been to” — President Buhari      Cache   Translate Page      
Yesterday in Abuja, President Muhammadu Buhari has reassured Nigerians that his administration will sustain massive investments to upgrade and develop the country’s transport and power infrastructure.
He spoke when he received members of the Association of Retired Career Ambassadors of Nigeria (ARCAN) led by Ambassador Oladapo Fafowora. The President told the retired Ambassadors that Nigerians will never forget the ‘‘lost opportunity between 1999 and 2015,’’ when the nation had huge resources at its disposal.
“There is no part of the country I haven’t been to, having attempted to be President four times. I know the condition of our roads. The rails were literally killed, there was no power despite the admittance of some previous leadership that they spent $16 billion on the sector.
Today, we are getting our priorities right and we believe that of the three fundamental issues we campaigned on security, the economy and fighting corruption, we have remained very relevant and Nigerians believe we have achieved something,” the President said.
President Buhari also used the occasion to appreciate the People’s Republic of China for financing some of the rail and power projects in the country through concessionary loans.
“I will do my best to see that where there are possibilities of making a quick improvement on infrastructure, we will do it,” he said.
President Buhari also appealed to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) to consider what this government inherited and the more it is doing with fewer resources in putting the economy right.


The President took note of some concerns raised by the retired Ambassadors including an appeal for the adjustment of their pension entitlements, retention of diplomatic passport for retired career ambassadors, allocation of land for ARCAN headquarters in Abuja and adequate funding of the Foreign Affairs ministry, among others.

          NLC suspends planned strike      Cache   Translate Page      
The Leadership of the Nigeria Labour Congress NLC and the Trade Union Congress TUC have suspended its proposed nationwide strike which was slated for November 6th.
NLC suspends planned strike
The labour unions had planned to embark on an indefinite strike on Tuesday to press home their demands for an upward review of the minimum wage from N18, 000 to N30, 000.
Rising from a meeting of the tripartite committee set up by the federal government, NLC president, Ayuba Wabba, told reporters that the decision to suspend the industrial action was taken after agreements were reached and documents signed.
“Having reached this position and agreements signed, the proposed strike action is hereby suspended,” he said.
Efforts to resolve the disagreement between government and labour initially suffered a set back on Monday as both parties failed to reach consensus on the minimum wage.
After meeting for over seven hours, the two teams arrived at different figures. While labour insisted on N30,000, the government delegation proposed N24,000.
Chris Ngige, minister of labour, had said the two figures would be forwarded to President Muhammadu Buhari for approval.
The meeting continued at 10pm and after two hours of deliberation, both sides agreed on an amount.
Wabba, who did not disclose the figure of the new minimum wage arrived at by the committee, said only the amount would be presented to Buhari.


He said the amount would only be made public after the committee’s report would have been presented to the president by 4.15pm on Tuesday.

          Aplazan medida coerción contra nigeriano acusado de asesinar a su esposa en Sosúa      Cache   Translate Page      


PUERTO PLATA. Un juez de la Oficina Judicial de Servicios de Atención Permanente de aquí aplazó para el próximo miércoles el conocimiento de la solicitud de medida de coerción contra un ciudadano nigeriano, acusado de matar a golpes a una mujer en el municipio Sosúa, de esta provincia.
La decisión obedeció a que no había un traductor que asistiera a Oluseye Adesegun, señalado como la persona que mató a Zaida Yonay Rosario Paniagua, de 29 años, cuyo cadáver fue hallado entre unos matorrales el pasado jueves, luego de haber sido reportada como desaparecida el lunes 29 de octubre.
En informe del médico del Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Forenses (INACIF) actuante en el caso certificó que la causa de la muerte de Rosario Paniagua se debió a politraumatismo cráneo encefálico severo, múltiples heridas abiertas en la boca y los pies, además estrangulamiento directo que le dejó rasgos de violencia en el cuello.
Según el expediente del Ministerio Público, el extranjero estuvo compartiendo con la victima el día de su desaparición.


Entre las pruebas que tienen las autoridades judiciales, figura un video de una cámara de seguridad del Alicia Beach Hotel, en el cual se observa cuando el nigeriano sacó la dama desvanecida y tomó un rumbo desconocido.
El Ministerio Público solicita que le sea impuesto un año de prisión preventiva al imputado.
El tribunal fijó el conocimiento de la medida de coerción para la 9:00 de la mañana de la referida fecha.

          New minimum wage: Full text of what Buhari said after receiving report      Cache   Translate Page      


President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday approved N30,000 as the new national minimum wage.

He gave the endorsement while receiving the report of the Tripartite Committee on the Review of National Minimum Wage at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Buhari thanked the committee and restated his government resolve for better welfare for Nigerian workers.

His full speech below after receiving the report below:

“On 27th November 2017, I inaugurated the National Minimum Wage Committee with a mandate to recommend a new minimum wage for the workers of our country.

“This exercise became necessary for many reasons. The last review took place in 2011. We all know since then, the prices of key consumables have increased and the most vulnerable of our workers are struggling to make ends meet.

“Since 2011, many changes have taken place. Nigeria rebased its GDP to become the largest economy in Africa. We reported very strong GDP growth rates and exceptional performance of our capital markets. However, these reported successes did not flow into the pockets and homes of majority of Nigerians.

“In the last three years, we focused on correcting this deficiency. We are working to create a diversified and inclusive economy.

“We are pushing to clear pension arrears owed to our retired workers with the limited resources available to us.

“We supported State Governments to pay workers salary. And of course, we set up a committee in order to review the minimum wage of workers.

“In constituting this committee, we took into account the need for all stakeholders to be adequately represented – the government, the private sector and most importantly the workers. Our goal was to get an outcome that was consensual.

“From the onset, we knew the committee had a difficult task ahead of it. But at the same time, we were also confident that the patriotic and professional background of its members would produce realistic, fair and implementable recommendations that will be considered by both the executive and legislative arms of government.

“I am not surprised that the committee has worked for close to one year. I am also not surprised that on a few occasions, the debates got heated and sometimes, these differences came out.

“What is truly inspiring is that, in almost all instances of disagreements, the committee members always came back to the negotiating table with a common goal of improving the welfare of Nigerian workers. On behalf of all Nigerians today, I want to thank you for your commitment and sacrifice in getting us to where we are today.

“In the past few days, I have been receiving regular updates on your deliberations. And today, I am pleased that you have completed your work in a peaceful and non-confrontational manner. The entire nation is grateful to you all.

“The Committee Chairman highlighted some of the challenges encountered during your deliberations, especially as it relates to having a consensus position acceptable by all parties.

“I understand, on the government side, the concerns raised were around affordability – that today many states struggle to meet their existing salary requirements.

“On the side of labour, the points raised focused on the need for any increase to be meaningful.

“In a way, both arguments are valid. I want to assure you all that we will immediately put in place the necessary machinery that will close out these open areas. Our plan is to transmit the Executive Bill to the National Assembly for passage within the shortest possible time.

“I am fully committed to having a new National Minimum Wage Act in the very near future.

“Let me use this opportunity to recognise the leadership of the organized labour and private sector as well as representatives of State and Federal Governments for all your hard work. The fact that we are here today, is a notable achievement.

“As the Executive Arm commences its review of your submission, we will continue to engage you all in closing any open areas presented in this report. I therefore would like to ask for your patience and understanding in the coming weeks.

“May I therefore, employ workers and their leaders not to allow themselves to be used as political weapons.

“Thank you and may God bless our country.”
          What Prince Charles discussed with traditional rulers – Emir Sanusi      Cache   Translate Page      


The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles on Tuesday met with some traditional leaders.

Prince Charles and his wife, Princess Camilla met with the traditional rulers in Abuja on Monday during a visit to Nigeria, the final leg of an eight-day tour to three West African countries to discuss, among other issues, peace and security, and educating the girl-child

Speaking with newsmen, following closed-door meeting, the Emir of Kano, Muhammed Sanusi II said the Prince gave a brief summary of discussions held with President Muhammadu Buhari on a range of issues, from climate change to demographic explosion.

Sanusi said that the proper education of the girl-child would address the issue of demographics in the country.

“We talked about town planning. Now take the north for example We have had a huge demographic explosion in the last 40 to 50 years but we have not yet changed the way we build our houses.

“So every time there is pressure for housing, the government takes over farmlands. Very soon we will not have enough farmland to feed Kano and we are not going to have grazing routes.

“We have got to start thinking how we could build vertically so that more families live on one plot, we free up the land, improve the yield on agriculture and begin to confront some of these challenges of demographics.

“Educating the girl child basically kills so many birds with one stone; we had a conversation around and the whole idea is how to work with the British Government in dealing with these issues and see how we can learn from each other’s experience,” the Emir said.

The Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba Ewuare II also told newsmen that the issues of human trafficking and youth empowerment were discussed adding that “I made my commitments”.

The seven traditional leaders received by Prince Charles are the Obi of Onitsha, Nnaemeka Achebe; Etsu Nupe, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar and the Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II.

Others are the Oba of Benin, Omo N’Oba Ewuare II; Shehu of Borno, Gabai El-Kanemi; Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja II) and the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III.

Prince Charles and Princess Camilla would visit Lagos on Wednesday, where they will engage the business community on a wide range of businesses, trade and investment.
