The US secretary of
state John Kerry visited
Nigeria amid heavy
economic and political
crisis, his visit proves
problematic for Buhari
in Aso Rock who is
faced with numerous
problems in the country
and angry citizens
calling for his
resignation.
Kerry arrived in Abuja
Tuesday, August 23,
2016, following a huge
political crisis in the
country as Nigeria faces
break up, the United
States is trying to use
her world power
influence to hold the
country together citing
several economic
interests.
With the continued
incarceration of Nnamdi
Kanu and the rise of the
Niger Delta Avengers,
Nigeria faces economic
default and total
breakdown of law and
order, Politicians from
around the world has
called for Kanu’s release
and for a referendum to
be held in respect to the
avenger’s and Biafra
agitators demand.
Buhari’s government
have been a massive
failure and the citizens
filled with discontent
amid severe poverty
and rising cost of living,
Nigeria is described as a
“failed state” suffering
from various problems
from economic to
political crisis to
corruption, unfair
treatment, and
marginalisation of the
southern region has led
to a major uprising with
series of protests seen
across the region calling
for a republic and the
avengers determined to
default the country’s
economy on an
“Operation Red
economy” mission by
destroying every
pipeline installations
and preventing
exploration and exports
as a way of protesting
the ill treatment of the
region for decades
Former president of
Nigeria, Chief Olusegun
Obasanjo describes the
situation as alarming
saying “Nigeria is on the
tip of a Gun barrel and
can explode at any
time” he also
acknowledged that the
country’s unity have
never been threatened
than now and if
nothing is done quickly
Nigeria will break up
forcefully.
John Kerry’s visit is
somehow useful at this
stage as the US is trying
to prevent another civil
war to erupt in the
country, hopefully,
president Buhari will be
persuaded to do the
right thing and release
Nnamdi Kanu to open
the door for diplomacy.

My removal, act of God, says ex-JAMB registrar

My removal, act of God, says ex-JAMB registrar

Ibadan—THE immediate past Registrar/Chief
Executive Officer, Joint Admissions and
Matriculation Board (JAMB), Professor, Dibu
Ojerinde, has said his removal was not
occasioned by rumoured disagreement he
had with the Minister of Education, Mallam
Adamu Adamu.
Professor Dibu Ojerinde, Ex-JAMB Registrar
He said contrary to reports that he had
misunderstanding with the minister, there
was no such thing, adding that he had
prepared his mind for the removal several
months before it was finally announced.
He appreciated President Muhammadu
Buhari and the minister for giving him the
opportunity to stay in office till the time he
was removed.
The professor of Test and Measurement and
pioneer Registrar/CEO of the National
Examination Council (NECO) said this during
a thanksgiving service at the First Baptist
Church, Igboho, Oyo State.
He said he was grateful to all Nigerians,
especially former Presidents Olusegun
Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan as well as
President Buhari, for believing in him and
giving the opportunities to serve his
country.
“I have always believed in God’s timing. I
had prepared my mind that anything could
happen and this development did not meet
me unexpectedly. Even when I met with the
minister, he said he would have loved that I
finished my term, I told him that it was God’s
time and that God’s time is always the best.”
”I am grateful to him and to President
Buhari as well as his predecessors in office,
Chief Obasanjo and Dr Jonathan. In fact, I am
grateful to all Nigerians for giving me the
platforms to serve my country in the last 25
years.”
Before his appointment as JAMB boss, he
was first appointed as the Director of
Monitoring, National Primary Education
Commission in 1990, and had since served
in several capacities in the education sector
including the National Board for Education
Measurement, Minna, which later became
NECO.

UEFA award’s Barca snub ‘scandalous’ – VP

UEFA award’s Barca snub ‘scandalous’ – VP

The absence of Barcelona players from the
finalists for UEFA’s Best Player in Europe
Award is “scandalous,” the club’s vice
president Jordi Mestre says.
The likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and
Neymar were not included when the
finalists were announced on Friday, with the
honours instead going to Real Madrid’s
Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale and
Atletico’s Antoine Grizemann.
“It doesn’t seem the right decision to me at
all,” Mestre told TV3. “I don’t know what
criteria UEFA applied, with all respect to the
chosen winners, but I disagree.
“That our players aren’t there, such as
Suarez or Messi, is scandalous.
“The club are very disappointed and angry.”
Barcelona won La Liga last season, with
Suarez scoring a remarkable 59 goals in all
competition, while Messi — who has won
the award twice before — added 41.
Ronaldo scored 51 goals in all competitions
as Real Madrid edged Atletico for the
Champions League crown.
All three finalists also reached the semifinals
of Euro 2016, with Ronaldo’s Portugal the
victors, while Barcelona’s three stars are all
from South America.
Journalists from each of UEFA’s 55 member
associations provided an initial list of their
five best players, with the 10 gaining the
most points advancing to a second vote to
determine the final three.
The winner of the award will be voted for at
the Champions League group stage draw on
Aug. 25.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho targets ‘unrealistic’ title

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho targets ‘unrealistic’ title

Jose Mourinho has set his Manchester
United players the “unrealistic” goal of
winning the Premier League title in his first
season.
Mourinho won the Champions League
against the odds with Portuguese side Porto
in 2004, lifting the trophy again with Inter
Milan in 2010.
United have not won the Premier League
since 2013, and finished fifth last season
under the management of Louis van Gaal.
And Mourinho said a United title this season
would be a similar feat to one of his
unexpected Champions League triumphs.
He told reporters: “Sometimes, during my
career, I created some unrealistic targets.
“By creating these [targets], you push the
team to unexpected levels. To win the
Champions League with Porto or Inter is
unexpected and a very risky objective.
“To win championships in the first season is
a little bit of the same, but I like that.
“People analyse it as arrogant and so on.
That’s not a problem for me. The reality is I
always feel this kind of difficult target can
only help us.”
Mourinho won the Premier League with
Chelsea in 2004-05 — his first season in the
Premier League — but when he returned for
a second stint in 2013 he had to wait until
his second season to do so.
Former United defender Rio Ferdinand
believes he can make an instant impact at
Old Trafford by lifting the title, telling the
Manchester Evening News: “If they get a
good start, they’ll be a hard train to stop.”
He added: “United should be aiming to win
the league — simple as that. With the players
that we’ve signed, I’m sure the players in
the changing room will be thinking the
same.
“Mourinho is not going there thinking that
hopefully we’ll be back in the Champions
League. No chance. His mentality is not like
that — he’s a winner. He’s going to want
trophies.”

Dream Team’s victory, a good beginning, says Buhari

Dream Team’s victory, a good beginning, says Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday
expressed optimism that the country’s team
will put up an impressive showing at the
2016 Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro,
Brazil.
This was contained in his message to the
Nigerian Olympic contingent.
Buhari, in a statement by the Senior Special
Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba
Shehu, hoped that the victory of Nigeria’s
Under 23 football team, the “Dream Team
Six” over their Japanese opponents in the
early hours of Friday will serve as an
inspiration to the entire contingent.
He said: “On behalf of the government and
people of our great country, I wish to
express my support to our athletes who
have arrived in Rio for the 2016 Olympic
Games. I am particularly delighted by the
outcome of the football match early this
morning in which our football team
defeated their Japanese counterparts.
“The sweetness of the victory comes from
the fact that it came against all odds. Our
team overcame several challenges to put up
a sterling performance. This is a good
beginning.” He added
He praised the resilience, hardwork and
patriotism that the athletes have put into
their preparations.
He said: “I am already aware that you have
made personal sacrifices in your journey to
the Olympic Games. The motivation comes
from strong discipline and the love of the
nation.”
“As you embark on the search for honours
for the nation, I seize this opportunity to
assure our Olympians that you have my
support and those of all Nigerians.
