Woman who killed husband & children omitted from obituary poster.

The mother who killed her husband, their three kids, and herself in a murder-suicide in Benue State, has been omitted from the obituary poster of the family.

The deceased identified as Mr. Nicholas Adetsav Alanga was found dead with his wife and children at their home in Vandeikya street, Makurdi, Benue state.

The attack began following a disagreement and the wife, who neighbours say has been known to be violent, went on a rampage. She damaged her husband’s car then killed her entire family before taking her life.

On the obituary, the husband and his three kids’ photos were placed with the words:

“Wonders shall never end.”

The burial will hold on Friday, November 16th at their hometown in Gwer-East local government of Benue state.

Oshiomhole Speaks As NLC Dares Governors Over N30,000 Minimum Wage..

National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Comrade Adams Oshiomhole  said yesterday that Nigeria can afford living wage for workers.

He said non payment of salaries by governors creates a viscious circle leading to low production and eventual loss of jobs.

Oshiomhole said as a governor, he told his colleagues that payment of salaries was  no burden, but a means of enhancing the development potential of the state, adding that the country’s major problem is stealing of public resources in the name or salary payment.

The former Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) president spoke on a television programme.

Labour yesterday rejected the governors’ claim that states cannot pay N30,000 minimum wage if it is eventually approved. The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) condemned  the threat by the govermors to sack workers should the new wage come into effect.

To NLC President Ayuba Wabba, the threat is not new in the struggle for review of the national minimum wage.

He said workers might be prevailed upon not to vote for governors who fail to pay the new wage.

“Therefore, the current one by the governor of Zamfara (Abdulaziz Yari) cannot be used to intimidate labour,” Wabba said in a statement, reiterating the directive that workers should vote out anti-labour governors and politicians. “The consequences of workers’ retrenchment are too grievous for any political office holder truly elected by the people to contemplate.

“Few political office holders are bent on enslaving Nigerian workers with peanuts mislabelled as salaries.

“We urge such elected public officials to subject their humongous salaries and allowances, reputed to be among the highest in the world to public perusal. Pro rata with the minimum wage, they want to force down the throats of Nigerian workers,” he said.

Wabba urged each of the governors to go to their state and inform workers on their individual position on the new national minimum wage of N30, 000.

”To the oppressors, we have only one answer for you, we will never sleep on our rights.

“We hereby reiterate our directive to Nigerian workers to vote out any politician or political party that refuses to pay the new national minimum wage of N30, 000.

“We shall continue to consolidate our efforts to strengthen already existing platforms and structures to give teeth to our resolve to vote out anti-labour governors and politicians in the forthcoming 2019 general election, ‘’Wabba said.

He urged President Muhammadu Buhari to speedily present to the National Assembly the bill on the National Minimum Wage for appropriate amendment and implementation.

‘Fake Buhari’ Narrative Is Foolery, Ungodly And Despicable – APC Chieftain..

Read the press statement below; 

Those peddling the narrative of ‘fake Buhari’ leading Nigeria have been described as gullible mischief makers, who are being urged on by those who have prayed for President Muhammadu Buhari’s death.

Giving this explanation in a statement issued and circulated in Port Harcourt on Thursday, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers state, Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, also revealed that the narrative had been part of the strategies of those who have plundered the nation’s wealth without conscience before President Buhari came in to end their reign of unchecked stealing.

According to the party chieftain, the authors of the narrative had hoped that the president would not return alive from his prolonged sick leave abroad, but were shocked to see him back healthier and pushing the anti-corruption campaign more vigorously, adding that their ‘plan B’ was taking advantage of the gullible and hateful, selling them a story that has become the butt of jokes across the world.

“These misguided fellows, who are products of the dismantled looting system that looted our common patrimony with impunity, would have loved to see President Buhari dead so that the efforts to recover their looted lot will be impossible, but unfortunately for them through the prayers of some innocent children of God that include the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby and Pastor Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, who visited him in London, and other religions leaders he survived to their uttermost shame and chagrin.

Eze highlighted that those peddling this falsehood are despicable and doubters of the ability of God to heal should take consolation in the words of Archbishop of Canterbury who later personally received the Nigerian president at Lambeth Palace, London stating that he was delighted to see the rapid recovery Mr. Buhari has made from his health challenges, noting that it was a testimony to the healing powers of God, and answer to prayers of millions of people round the world.

President Muhammadu Buhari who thanked Pastor Adeboye for visiting him saying on his twitter handle ‘thank Pastor Adeboye for visiting today, and for his prayers and good wishes. May God continue to bless him and his work’

According to Eze, others that visited President Buhari during this period were the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara

Apart from his Media Team, the State Governors, some selected Ministers and the then Acting-President Yemi Osinbajo led the stream of visitors.

Eze wonders how all these high ranking personalities couldn’t detect the ‘fake President’ and regretted that instead of us rejoicing that President Muhammadu Buhari survived their evil plot they resorted to cheap blackmail of trying to cast doubt and aspersion on the person and personality of President Buhari”, he said.

Eze also described the onslaught on the person of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as mischievous, unpatriotic, evil, demonic and unacceptable, saying “how could a foreigner, as claimed by these mischief makers, come in to act as the President of Nigeria without either the wife of the President or his children raising alarm over such an unislamic and unholy act?

“How could he have known both the president’s home in Kastina, recognise all the political actors in Nigeria, including his ministers and governors. Proponents of this satanic game should understand that Nigerians are aware, wise people and not fools who will accept such a dubious and diversionary strategy”, he said.

Eze recalled the statement of  Mr Yakubu Dogara the Speaker of the House of Representatives, “Today we visited His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari. I am glad that he is doing well. His health has improved tremendously. I urge all Nigerians to continue to pray and offer thanks to God for answered prayers and for the safe return of Mr President.We must give thanks to God for this highly welcomed recovery. It is clear that Mr. President’s insistence on following his doctors’ advice has yielded the desired results. Mr. President exhibited remarkable recovery and was very conversant with all the political happenings back at home and across the continent”.

Eze therefore counselled the egg heads in PDP to come up with serious campaign issues instead of such elementary and awkward diversionary styles of blackmailing.

He also assured Nigerians that President Buhari’s survival was divine as enemies of Nigeria never expected him to survive, adding “with all the great works his administration is doing to revive our economy: revival of the power sector, agriculture, roads and rail line and many others, Nigeria should be ready to ensure that he is reelected to avoid taking us back to the era of looting system of government associated with PDP leadership.”

Young Man Arrested For Criticising Politician.

A social media influencer, Hon Eneh Victor Chigozie, was arrested by the police for allegedly defaming a prominent politician in Anambra state.

On Wednesday night, the news of Eneh’s arrest and detention went viral, thereby sparking concerns among internet users who called for his unconditional release.

It was reported that one Chief Chinedu Obidigwe, a former political adviser to governor Willie Obiano and the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) flag bearer for Anambra East and West Federal constituency – was allegedly behind the arrest of Eneh for always criticising him and his political ambition ahead of the 2019 election.

The young man was whisked away in Enugu by men of State CID Awka.

According to media reports, Eneh was arrested in Enugu on Wednesday around 1 a.m and was allegedly driven straight to Aguleri in Anambra to Chinedu Obidigwe’s house in a Toyota Sienna and three hilux vans where he was handcuffed and humiliated as can be seen in the pictures.

Report by Chief. Bonaventure Mokwe had it that Chinedu Obidigwe came out and said to him that he himself is the headmaster and started flogging beating him (Eneh) mercilessly along with others.
He was subsequently taken to the state C.I.D. after that and allegedly tortured again.

It was gathered that Chief Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah and Chief Bonaventure Mokwe, swung into action and aided the young man’s release after the illegal arrest.

They saved the day if not Eneh would have been dumped at the Amawbia prison after a second round of torture at the CID and an emergency arraignment with no right to attorney.

Airport project : Be ready for jail, Bayelsa APC tells Dickson.

Related image
All Progressives Congress, APC, in Bayelsa State and the state government were yesterday engaged in diatribe over an alleged fraud in the International Cargo Airport built by the administration of Governor Seriake Dickson in the state.

The party threatened that it would jail the governor after his tenure over the matter.

The APC described the state airport project reportedly scheduled for inauguration soon, as a “cesspit of fraud”, adding that the project was a fraudulent scheme put up by Governor Dickson to facilitate the siphoning of state funds.

The state government in its reaction, described  the APC in the state under the leadership of former governor, Timipre Sylva, as a ’’rejected party  of sick, confused people.” The APC, in a statement yesterday in Yenagoa, by its  Publicity Secretary, Doifie Buokoribo, said Governor Dickson should be prepared to stand trial for alleged crimes against the people of Bayelsa State.

According to the party: “The  Bayelsa airport project is clearly the most expensive airport project in Nigeria, as none of the 26 owned by the Federal Government or the eight owned by states is near that figure. “The airport is economically unviable as it lacks vital intermodal network for easy accessibility.

“Governor Henry Seriake Dickson collected N40 billion credit facility from a commercial bank to commence work on the project. As against the initial estimated cost of N40 billion, the Bayelsa State governor disclosed in Amassoma, Southern Ijaw Local Government Council, on May 26, 2018 that N80 billion had already been spent by the state government

“When added to the new figure, and the interest of N32 billion, the cost comes to N112 billion. It is clearly the most expensive airport project in Nigeria.’’

However, the state government in a statement by  the Commissioner for Information, Mr. Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said the APC had become a leprous organisation.

He said: “Timipre Sylva and the APC once told Bayelsans that the Nembe Road had no economic value but he uses that road to his community anytime he visits Bayelsa.

“The same clique of politicians bereft of ideas is saying the Bayelsa Airport does not have economic value in their desperation to criticise and condemn anything PDP.

“The fact is that APC is a sinking party of sick, confused minds, who lack the capacity to see tomorrow.”


Govs earn over N600,000, not N500,000 – Investigation.

Image result for fayemi
Contrary to the claim by Governor Kayode Fayemi that governors in Nigeria earn N500, 000 per month, the official monetised salary of a governor in the country is actually N648,580.62, findings from an investigation have shown.

Fayemi had said that professors in Nigerian universities earned as much as he earned, and that, in some cases, they earned more than him on a monthly basis.

He said that as a governor, he earned N500,000 monthly salary, arguing that a professor sometimes earned more than that.

The governor berated Nigerian academic for allegedly not taking advantage of certain opportunities which, he said, he was privy to.

However, a document, Remuneration Package of Political, Public and Judicial Office Holders, obtained from the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission by our correspondent in Abuja on Thursday, showed that there were other allowances which the governor was entitled to.

While a few of the allowances are paid periodically, there are others that are not monetised which the state provides fully, according to the preference of the governor.

The governor’s monthly salary is made up of three items – basic salary, hardship allowance and constituency allowance.

According to RMAFC’s document, a governor is entitled to a monthly basic salary of N185,306.75.  He is entitled to a monthly hardship allowance of N92,654.37 and monthly consistency allowance of N648,580.62.

These add up to a monthly salary of N648, 580.62 or an annual sum of N7, 782,967.50.

Other allowances of the governor that are not part of the monthly emoluments are 10 per cent leave allowance which amounts to N222,370.50 per annum.

Should a governor so desire, he is entitled to 400 per cent Motor Vehicle Loan which amounts to N8,894,820.

When a governor completes his tenure, he is entitled to 300 per cent severance allowance, which amounts to N6,671,115. This is apart from what is provided by each state as pension and gratuity.

However, the majority of the allowances that a governor is entitled to are not monetised. This means that the state makes full provision for such items – to the taste of the governor.

Such allowances include the following: Motor vehicle fuelling and maintenance, special assistant, personal assistant, domestic staff, entertainment, utilities, security, and newspapers/periodicals.

Other allowances that are fully provided by the state for the governor are accommodation, furniture, duty tour allowance, estacode and medical.

According to the document, the annualised salary and allowances of the President is N14,058,820 while that of the Vice-President is N12,126,290.

For a senator, the salary and allowances add up to N20, 669,280 per annum. Those of a member of the House of Representatives add up to N17, 271,347.75.

For a minister, the salary and allowances add up to N14,705,164, while those of presidential aides add up to N14, 085,843.75.

On the face value, therefore, it appears that even the aides appointed to serve both the President and the Vice-President earn higher than these two key officials of the state.

However, the reason is that while most of the allowances of lawmakers, senators and presidential aides are monetised, the allowances that are supposed to be earned by the President and the VP are provided by the state – without any limit, just like the governor.

Apart from the salary, the regular allowances that are monetised for the President are only hardship allowance, N1, 757,350.50 per annum; and consistency allowance, N8, 786,762:50 per annum.

For the Vice-President, the hardship allowance is N1, 515,786:25 per annum, while the consistency allowance is N7, 578,931:25 per annum.

The irregular allowances for the President are the severance allowance – 300 per cent of the annual salary or N10, 544,115 – and leave allowance – 10 per cent of the annual salary or N351, 470:50.

The irregular allowances of the vice-president are the severance allowance – 300 per cent of the annual salary or N9, 094,717:50 – and leave allowance – 10 per cent of the annual salary or N303, 157:25.

Other allowances that the President and the Vice-President are supposed to enjoy which are not provided in monetary terms include motor vehicle fuelling and maintenance, special assistant, and personal assistant.

Others are domestic staff, entertainment, utilities, security and newspapers/periodical allowances.

These irregular allowances include accommodation, furniture, duty tour, estacode, medical, and severance/gratuity.

Two other officials of the state whose most allowances are not monetised but provided for by the state are the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

In the states, governors and Speakers of the State Houses of Assembly enjoy similar privileges.

These items,  which are supposed to constitute allowances for the President and the VP are to be fully provided for these key office holders by the state according to the Remuneration Package of Political, Public and Judicial Office Holders prepared by the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission and passed into law in 2007 by the National Assembly.

The country’s annual budgets give an indication of how much the nation spends on the items required by the President.

Following the outcry of citizens for a downward review of the emoluments of political office holders as a result of dwindling oil earnings of the country, President Muhammadu Buhari had in 2015 directed RMAFC to review the emoluments.

The work of the agency which was concluded in 2016 came to nothing as the President could not act on the report which was submitted to his office.

Man hangs self in Akwa Ibom.

Image result for suicide rope gif
A young man, who works with an undisclosed Federal Government agency, allegedly hanged himself in his one room apartment, along NEPA Line, Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital.

Vanguard gathered that the residents and neighbours only came to know about what happened when some of his colleagues at work came to check on him yesterday’s morning.

Although sources around the area said the man hails from Rivers state, they however said they did not know him very well because he was new in the area.

His identity could not be ascertained at the time of filing this report, as people residing within the same compound refused to talk when newsmen visited the area yesterday. A resident, who spoke to Vanguard on the ground of anonymity, said, “I don’t know anything about the man. It is like he moved into the apartment not long ago. Maybe those living in the compound may have better information about him.

“I only see him when he is going to work in the morning. In fact many people around here don’t know him by his name because he looks very gentle and he does not socialize.

“In fact, the news everywhere is that people in his office tried contacting him this morning (yesterday) through his mobile line when they did not see him at work and he did not pick up the calls.

“I think they decided to come to his residence here at NEPA line to find out why he did not come to work and when they arrived they dialled his number again and it was ringing inside his room.

“After several calls without response they decided to peep into the room and saw that he has hanged himself. That was how many people got to know what happened. And the police from C division also came to that compound this morning but they did not remove the body. That is all I can say about that” Contacted, Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Odiko Macdon, said he was yet to be briefed about the matter, adding “however, I will call the division concerned to ascertain the authenticity of that information and if it is true proper investigation will be carried out.”
