US ENVOY LEADS PROTEST OVER ANTI-ISRAELI 'BIGOTRY' AT UN COUNCIL

Image
The UN Human Rights Council has a dedicated fixture on its schedule which is exclusively devoted to resolutions condemning Israel's treatment of the Palestinians, which is known as Agenda Item 7 (AFP Photo/Fabrice COFFRINI) More Geneva (AFP) - The US ambassador to Germany led protests outside the UN Monday over what he termed the "bigotry" faced by Israel at the Human Rights Council, as nations weighed condemnations of the Jewish state. Several hundred people joined the protests which were largely focused on the council's so-called Agenda Item 7, a fixture on the council's schedule exclusively devoted to resolutions condemning Israel's treatment of the Palestinians. Israel is the only country with a dedicated agenda item, which is one of the main factors that prompted the United States to leave the rights council last year. "This is not just a form of bigotry. It is a sign of intellectual and moral decay," US envoy Richard Grenell told the crowd. "Li…

The Bill, which was laid and presented by Senator Francis Alimikhena, sets the new minimum wage at N30,000. Speaking on the passage of the Bill, President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki said: “Let me join our colleagues to commend the efforts of the committee. More importantly, let me commend the patience of Nigerian workers and the leadership of the Labour Union, who have over the years been calling for this minimum wage and have carried their efforts responsibly. “I want to commend the leaders of the organisations of the union. Let me also state that as government, we should ensure that at times like these, we should not wait for there to be strikes to do what is truly deserving for our workers. “I hope that with this minimum wage our workers will double their efforts to increase their p…

28,000-YEAR-OLD BABY MAMMOTH RESURRECTED BY A JAPANESE BIOLOGIST

Image
Yuka, a female woolly mammoth is displayed for an exhibition in Yokohama, suburban Tokyo on July 12, 2013. Even in retirement, 90-year-old Akira Iritani still dreamed of resurrecting the prehistoric woolly mammoth. After decades of trying, the Japanese biologist admits he almost gave up. But when he heard about a well-preserved specimen embedded in the Siberian permafrost in 2012, he knew he had to investigate. Turns out the 28,000-year-old baby mammoth, dubbed "Yuka", was just what Iritani wanted. In a groundbreaking experiment, his research team successfully revived Yuka's ancient cells, journal scientific reports revealed this month. "I'd been trying to find dormant mammoth cells for 20 years but as I'm (now) 90, I thought I should just give up and accept death," says Iritani, an animal reproduction expert and former director of the Institute of Advanced Technology at Kindai University in Wakayama, Japan. "I'm so happy with this latest research. …

Justice Onnoghen’s trial was adjourned last week following his absence on health grounds. His counsel, Adeboyega Awomolo, had tendered a letter from the CJN, explaining that he developed issues with his tooth and could not make it to court. The prosecutor, on the other hand, Aliyu Umar, said he had also received a copy of the letter as well as a medical report indicating he had a high blood pressure. In today’s sitting, the prosecution, Mr. Umar, called for the first witness, Mr. James Akpala, a Senior Investigative officer with the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

He said that the petition was received from one Denis Aganya alleging breach of Code of Public Office including non-declarat…

UDOM’S RE-ELECTION WAS DEFY FOR GOD- After After

Image
After After who had earlier in November, 2018 remarked the manner and ways through which Senator Godswill Akpabio would be overtaken, has maintained that Governor Udom Emmanuel’s victory was a direct challenge to God Himself. He revealed that, among the three reasons for which God answers our prayers, God has involved Himself in the Udom’s guber because it was a fight for God to prove himself. According to him, “Godswill Akpabio did not only impose himself on the Akwa-ibomites but also lords himself over them. No man had spoken in the manner Akpabio had spoken and had their lives in them.  King Herod developed live maggots because he spoke like God; Mohamed and many others did and never lived above their time.” He further said that Godswill Challenged God with the following statements: 1.        “I cannot kill my gateman, but when my gateman misbehaves I can fire   him. My gateman has misbehaved, I shall fire him” 2.        “If Udom Emmanuel wins the next election they should cut my head …

"Beyoncé and JAY-Z are global icons and passionate defenders of human rights and acceptance for all people," GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said in a statemen…

OKOROCHA IN THE WORSE MESS

Image
Narrating his reason for the declaration, Ibeabuchi had said he was "held up at the centre by supporters of Mr Okorocha”, who insisted he must complete the announcement. The returning officer’s account might have necessitated the omission of Okorocha's name from INEC’s list, as the commission simply explained the omission on its website as "declaration under duress". The name of Rochas Okorocha, the outgoing Governor of Imo State, is missing from the list of senators-elect published by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Monday. Okorocha contested to represent Imo West Senatorial District in the February 23 election. After the collation of results, Innocent Ibeabuchi, INEC Returning Officer for Imo West Senatorial District, declared Okorocha winner of the election. However, Ibeabuchi has since said he was “forced” to declare the results at the Imo West election collation centre in Orlu.
Narrating his reason for the declaration, Ibeabuchi had said he w…

R. KELLY SEX ABUSE TAPE DISCOVERED, SAYS LAWYER

Image
One of the lawyers representing women who claim they were abused by R&B star R. Kelly said Sunday a new videotape had emerged which showed the singer “sexually abusing children.” Kelly is currently on bail after being accused of sexually abusing four women, including three teenagers, between May 1998 and January 2010. The latest discovery was announced by lawyer Gloria Allred at a press conference where she told journalists it was found by couple Gary and Sallie Dennis in a box of old VHS cassettes at their home. Neither Allred nor Dennis elaborated on how the tape came to be in the couple’s possession. “Prior to learning that such a tape was in their possession, Sallie had viewed the Lifetime documentary called ‘Surviving R. Kelly,'” said Allred. “She was emotionally very disturbed by what the women in the documentary alleged had happened. “Sometime after that, Sallie and her husband discovered to their surprise that they had a VHS tape that could be helpful in learning what had ha…

OKEZIE IKPEAZU DANCES TO HIS VICTORY

BREAKING: TWO SUICIDE BOMBERS STRIKE AT CATHOLIC CHURCH IN ADAMAWA

"The bombers arrived 30 minutes into the mass," Bishop Stephen Dami Mamza said. Two suicide bombers who targeted St. Pious Catholic Church in Shuwa, Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State, have detonated their bombs. They, however, killed only themselves, SaharaReporters can report. Papka Medugu, a parishioner who witnessed the incident, told SaharaReporters on Sunday morning that suspected Boko Haram members "targeted our church while the morning mass was going on, but to God's glory they both exploded before they could access the church". "Vigilant Catholic cadet boys on patrol around the church vicinity prevented the bombers from gaining entry into the church, thereby forcing the explosives to detonate before getting to their target," the eyewitness said, just as he confirmed that only the two bombers were killed in the incident. Most Reverend Stephen Dami Mamza, Catholic Bishop of Yola Diocese, confirmed the attack to SaharaReporters. "Cat…

WIKE, HAS ALLEGED THAT APC IS PLANNING TO KIDNAP THE RESIDENT ELECTORAL COMMISSIONER IN THE STATE

Image
He claimed that it was being planned in connivance with some security agencies in the state with the aim of forcing the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to postpone the Governorship and House of Assembly elections in the state. The governor made the allegation on Tuesday during a town hall meeting at the Rivers West Senatorial District in Ahoada.

WHERE WAS GOD WHEN I MADE YOU GOVERNOR - AKPABIO CHALLENGES UDOM

Image
Protocol, Gentlemen of the press, it is with a heart full of gratitude to God Almighty that we are pleased to address you this afternoon. As citizens of Akwa Ibom State and Fathers of Faith in the land, we cannot but give glory to God for the peace and progress that our state has witnessed in the last four years. It is against the backdrop of the socio-economic development that has put Akwa Ibom in national and global spotlight that we had expected that our political transitions by way of the 2019 general elections will be conducted in an atmosphere of peace, devoid of threats, intimidations and brigandage. However, events that have characterized the electioneering process have left many peace-loving citizens wondering why we should come this low in the quest for political relevance. This unpleasant political atmosphere came to the fore since the uncommon defection of our son and former Governor, Senator Godswill Akpabio from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the All Progressives Con…

APC HIRED THUGS TO OUTWIT UDOM EMMANUEL

ATIKU PREPARES FOR LEGAL WAR

Image
He said: “I have just inaugurated my legal team and charged them with the responsibility of ensuring that our stolen mandate is retrieved. Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has inaugurated his legal team to challenge the outcome of the presidential election. Atiku had secured 11,262,978 votes and lost to Buhari, who polled 15,191,847 votes on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC). A statement issued on Saturday by Paul Ibe, his media aide, noted that the legal team would be headed by Dr. Livy Uzoukwu (SAN). He said: “I have just inaugurated my legal team and charged them with the responsibility of ensuring that our stolen mandate is retrieved. “I am encouraged by the presence of fearless men and women of the Bench. The judiciary, which had in the past discharged itself ably, is once again being called upon to deliver judgement on this matter that will be untainted by lucre and uncowed by the threat of immoral power."

TYLER PERRY EXPLAINS WHY HE'S RETIRING HIS BELOVED MADEA CHARACTER

Perry told CNN in a recent interview why he's saying goodbye to the feisty character after 10, soon to be 11, successful films. "I'll be 50 this year and I'm just at a place in my life where this next 50 I want to do things differently," he said. "This character has been amazing. So many people have loved her. It's been a great franchise." But Perry left the door open, somewhat slightly, that maybe one day down the road she'll be back. "She's also run out of things to say in my point of view. So if there's something else for her to say maybe one day she'll return but for right now, no, I think I'm done." Perry first debuted Madea on stage in the play "I Can Do Bad All By Myself" in 1999 and she made her screen debut in the 2005 film, "Diary of a Mad Black Woman." Despite the film's title, it's not Madea's funeral and Perry says he did that for a reason. "No, you can't kill her. …

ATIKU KICKS AGAINST DEPLOYMENT OF MILITARY ON MARCH 9

Image
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the just-concluded election, Atiku Abubakar, is asking the Federal Government not to deploy the military in the Governorship and House of Assembly elections coming up on Saturday March 9, 2019. According to the media aide to the former Vice President, Paul Ibe, this formed part of Mr. Abubakar’s demands during the meeting between the National Peace Committee and some PDP leaders on Thursday. In a statement, Abubakar also made reference to the electoral infractions the party claimed it observed during the Presidential election. He added in the statement, “Ahead of the 9 March governorship and state house of assembly election, the Atiku Abubakar team called for the unconditional release of all those illegally arrested and detained for political reasons. “Atiku Abubakar and his team reaffirmed that the presidential election of 23 February was the worst in the history of the country since the return to democracy in 1999.” He s…
