Untold Security, Intelligence Conundrum Of The Buhari Administration
The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has been drawn to ongoing campaign by agents of misinformation and destabilization as championed by reports published in Sahara Reporters, an online news report, entitled: Untold Security, Intelligence Conundrum Of The Buhari Administration, authored by a certain Sani Tukur.

Ordinarily, we would have ignored the report and allow it to end up in the dustbin of history, for that is where it actually belongs, but for the fact that it is a follow–up to an earlier, similar, report also titled: EFCC’s Attempt To Arrest Abba Kyari Sparks Panic In Aso Rock, which we considered an attempt to silence the Commission from carrying on with its constitutional duties of fighting corruption; we have considered it necessary to clarify issues in relation thereof.

Bisi and Vice President
APC chieftain and former Osun state governor, Bisi Akande, says President Buhari is bound to fail because of the system of government Nigeria practices. Speaking at a news conference in his country home, Ila, Osun state as part of activities to mark his 79th birthday, Akande said the presidential system of government Nigeria is practising can no longer sustain its growth and success and that the best form of government for the country to practice if it desires to be in the league of other developed countries, is the multi-party parliamentary democracy .

According to him, the American democracy system of multi-party presidentialism was too complicated and costly for a country of poor people with large illiteracy rate like Nigeria.
“President Buhari is my friend and I want him to succeed but he is running a difficult system of government. Nigeria’s democracy is a military democracy of sharing and if we continue like this, there is no how we can succeed. Up to this present age, evidence-based analyses has proven parliamentary democracy to be the most accountable transparent form of government in the whole world.”

AU ambassadors demand apology from Trump over ‘racist remarks’

African Union ambassadors to the UN demanded an apology from U.S. President Donald Trump for his “racist remark” on the people of Africa.

The group of over 50 nations in a statement said: “the AU expressed its disappointment and outrage over the unfortunate comment made by Mr Donald Trump, President of the United States of America.

“The remarks dishonour the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity.

“While expressing our shock, dismay and outrage, the African Union truly believes that there is a huge misunderstanding of the African continent and its people by the current administration.

“There is a serious need for dialogue between the U.S. administration and the African countries. The African Union, through its member States, values the strategic partnership with the U.S.

Edo state & Chinese firm deal for Gelegele seaport to create 200,000 jobs

Efforts by the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led administration to transform Edo State into an industrial hub and create the 200,000 jobs he promised Edo electorates during his electioneering campaign are clearly in sight with the successful signing of two Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with Chinese companies for the development of Gelegele Seaport and other infrastructure as well as a 5,500 modular refinery in the state.
While the Gelegele Seaport will open up Edo State to the international market, the 5,500 modular refinery will boost the refining capacity of local refineries and will address the age-long fuel supply crisis resulting from inadequate capacity to refine petroleum products locally.

The MoU signing ceremony in China on Monday, will see China Harbour Engineering Company, the biggest infrastructure company in China, with a robust portfolio covering the broad infrastructure spectrum, lead the development of the Gelegele seaport that will serve as the gateway for exporting manufactured goods from the Benin Industrial Park under construction and other manufacturing companies in the region.

The MoU signing is the result of series of engagements between Governor Obaseki and the Chairman of China Harbor Engineering Company (CHEC), Mr Lin Yichong, which started last year.

China Harbour Engineering Company Limited is a global player in infrastructure development handling the construction-dredging/excavati on for waterfront development in Yanbu, southwest Saudi Arabia and on the northern shore of the Red Sea as well as the Lagos moles repair project, being executed by the Nigeria Port Authority.

China Demolishes a Known Mega Church

Authorities in northern China have demolished a Christian megachurch in a move denounced by a religious rights group as “Taliban-style persecution”.

China’s officially atheist Communist authorities are wary of any organised movements outside their control, including religious ones.

The huge evangelical Jindengtai (“Golden Lampstand”) Church, painted grey and surmounted by turrets and a large red cross, was located in Linfen, Shanxi province.

Its demolition began on Tuesday under “a city-wide campaign to remove illegal buildings”, the Global Times newspaper reported, quoting a local government official who wished to remain anonymous.

“A Christian offered his farmland to a local Christian association and they secretly built a church using the cover of building a warehouse,” the official said.

The local housing department had stopped construction of the church in 2009 when it was almost complete, he added.

Administrator frowns at flogging of students as corrective measure

Sis Martha Imhandiojie, Administrator, Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Model School ( EHJMS ), Kubwa, Abuja, on Wednesday condemned flogging of children as the main and only method of correcting and instilling discipline in them.

Imhandiojie, in an interview urged school administrators, parents, guardians and teachers to find alternative and more effective ways of achieving this.

She said that resorting to excessive flogging of children would not only cause severe physical harm to them but render the method ineffective over time.

According to her, when you resort to flogging all the time and children get used to it, then flogging will no longer be an effective way of correcting them when they misbehave.

She said there were better and more effective ways of correcting children who did wrong without flogging them.
