Donald Trump Look-a-like Paraded Topless Around City Center Like A Dog. Photos

A semi-n@ked Donald Trump look-a-like being was made to ‘walk’ around on a dog lead. The video footage – published in local media – shows oligarch Aleksandr Donskoy parading the Trump-style ‘dog’ around the city in St Petersburg, Russia.

The man, stripped to the waist and wearing a blond wig and a rubber Trump mask, snarls at passers by as Donskoy urges him: “Bite! Bite!”
As shoppers and office workers start to laugh at the spectacle, Donskoy leads the bogus hound to his car where he barks at people through the window.
Donskoy – who dubbed his stunt ‘Trump, Heel!’ – said: “The politician, who has given people great hope – not only in my country, but also the majority of Russians, Americans and residents of many other countries – was not able to keep his promises and follow his principles.”

The footage was initially available on YouTube, but it was later taken down, with a message saying: “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s policy on harassment and bullying.”
Donskoy – once the he Mayor of the northern Russian city Arkhangelsk – is known in Russia for his weird video stunts.

Ebonyi speaker makes case for LG autonomy

NULGE rally
NULGE rally in Abuja
By Chukwuemeka Opara
Mr Francis Nwifuru, Speaker of Ebonyi House of Assembly has assured members of Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE ) Ebonyi chapter, that the state government supports local government autonomy.
Nwifuru spoke in Abakaliki on Wednesday when NULGE members marched to the assembly complex to seek the lawmakers support for local government autonomy, already endorsed by the National Assembly.
The National Assembly endorsement to sail through, it must be endorsed by the houses of assemblies of two-thirds of the 36 states.
According to Nwifuru, besides the Assembly being in support of local government autonomy, Gov. Dave Umahi, is also highly in support of the autonomy.
According to the speaker, the governor endorsed the autonomy in a letter for constitutional amendments he sent to him as required by all State House of Assembly speakers.
“The speakers were invited to Lagos on the issue of constitutional amendments with relevant sections to be amended and asked to present the letters to their governors.

“My governor fortunately voted in support of the autonomy and told me that we should try them and leave Nigerians to see and deal with them if they fail,” he said.
The speaker advised NULGE not to hold him responsible for the outcome of the assembly members’ votes on the autonomy, but to immediately consult with their constituencies’ representatives before resumption from recess.
“You watched the National Assembly voting process during the constitutional amendment and you saw that the Senate President and Speaker of House of Representatives did not vote.
“They will only vote when there are contradictory situations to ascertain whether the issues will scale through or be rejected.
“Go and discuss with your representatives so that when we reconvene by Oct. 3 and start debating on them, you must have given them inputs to support the autonomy.
“You should dialogue, educate and give them clear explanations on the merits of local government autonomy because it is what all of us needs and can be achieved through unity,” he said.
Mr Leonard Nkah, Ebonyi NULGE President, noted that autonomy would ensure that local government chairmen would stop blaming state governors as excuses for non-performance.
“It will curb the excesses of the chairmen and abolish issues like bloating of workers and teachers payroll with its attendant vices and consequences.
“Autonomy will also enable the local governments bounce back with activities and replicate the state tier of government in areas of road construction, agricultural enhancement, revenue generation, among others.
He also remarked that autonomy will create a political-level playing ground for true grassroots politicians to emerge as chairmen and councillors.

“This will create a level of stability that will attract high profile individuals to participate in grassroots governance and contribute toward the tier’s enhancement.
“Autonomy will also create financial discipline to check financial mismanagement and obligation of the holders of the peoples’ mandates,” he said.
Mr Abimbola Babalola, National Trustee member of NULGE, who represented the National President, noted that autonomy of local governments would also ensure the autonomy of the state houses of assemblies.
NULGE members during the rally marched to the government house and through major streets of Abakaliki.

Pop star Justin Bieber’s testicle puts nurse in trouble

Nurse: sues for justice over sack in Justin Biebar’s testicle problem
The female nurse terminated after being accused of illegally accessing pop star Justin medical record when he was taken in for twisted testicle, is crying for justice.
Her employer accused her of accessing Bieber’s medical file to confirm rumour that he had sexually transmitted infection.
The former employee at Northwell Health in Long Island has sued, claiming wrongful termination based on alleged incident involving the pop star’s medical records.
Bieber visited Northwell Health in Long Island in May, fearing he had twisted a testicle playing soccer.
Now, New York employment attorney David H. Rosenberg tells Billboard that his client Kelly Lombardo, a former staffer at Northwell, was fired over accusations that she illegally accessed Bieber’s medical file during the May 18, 2017 visit.
On the day in question, according to Rosenberg and an administrative action filed Tuesday (Aug. 29) with the New York Division of Human Rights, Lombardo heard a rumour that Bieber was in for a sexually transmitted infection.
But she alleges she didn’t believe the STI claim and maintains that she never had access to the pop star’s files nor any contact with him at all.
Rosenberg says that when Lombardo denied the accusations to her employers, they implied that as a young female, she must have been curious to know why Bieber was in the ER.
Lombardo is filing for administrative action with the New York State Division of Human Rights, alleging gender discrimination and wrongful termination.
“My client never accessed Mr. Bieber’s medical file. She was falsely accused of doing it because of her gender,” Rosenberg tells Billboard.
“We look forward to vigorously prosecuting these claims at the New York Division of Human Righ

Germany’s Allianz takes over Nigerian insurer

Allianz CEO Oliver Bate: Takes over Nigerian insurer
Germany’s Allianz plans to pay $35 million for 98 percent stake in Nigerian insurer Ensure Insurance in a push for growth in Africa, where many people are uninsured.
Foreign insurers are banking on growing premiums as the continent develops its infrastructure and a consumer class demands protection from risk.
Allianz said that it would acquire the stake from UK-based holding company Greenoaks Global Holdings. Ensure Insurance offers life and non-life cover to businesses and retail clients and generated 11 million euros ($13 million) in gross premiums last year.
The Allianz group has operations in 16 African countries and views the Ensure acquisition as an opportunity to tap into Nigeria’s strong demographics and economy.
“The transaction gives Allianz access to the fifth-largest insurance market in Africa and is in line with our strategy to capture long-term growth opportunities on the continent,” said Allianz Africa spokeswoman Bettina Sattler.
“It is also a market with significant entry barriers, which is another reason why this acquisition is a great opportunity for us. Entering Nigeria with a team that knows the market was essential for us.”
Allianz expects the acquisition to close this year and said it intends to retain Ensure’s management team.
The german insurer plans to focus on property and casualty insurance, particulary underwriting industrial and speciality risk in the energy sector as well a large complex risks such as infrastructure.
“In the past two years, we have been quite visible in Nigeria, sharing our risk-management expertise in power, oil and gas, as well as cyber insurance,” Sattler said.
“Now that we have a company locally … the retail sector is another growth sector for us.”
Allianz follows British insurer Prudential which last month bought a majority stake in Nigeria’s Zenith Life to gain access to the African country’s fast-growing insurance market.
South African insurer Liberty Holdings, which bought remaining shares it didn’t already own in Nigeria’s Total Health Trust in August 2015, said in February that it would acquire a 75 percent stake in an unidentified Nigerian long-term insurer for 160 million rand ($12 million).
France’s AXA acquired Nigeria’s fourth-largest insurer Mansard Insurance three years ago.

Mimiko left over N220b debt, says Akeredolu

By Ayodeji Alabi/Akure
Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State says his administration inherited a debt burden of N220.58bn at its inception.
Akeredolu made this known in Akure on Wednesday while swearing-in commissioners and special advisers. He advised the people of the state to refrain from acts that could further push the state into deep economic crisis.
But his claim about the debt legacy was promptly attacked by a former commissioner for Information during the Mimiko administration, Mr Kayode Akinmade, who said that Mimiko left N20billion in the kitty of the state government. Akinmade skirted the issue of debt and also did not explain why Mimiko failed to match the N38.64 billion left in the kitty of the state government by his predecessor, Gov.Olusegun Agagu.
Akeredolu said with a debt of more than N220 billion, it was not difficult for anyone to know that the government’s capacity for adjustment to cater for the people had been stretched to its limit.
According to him Internal Debt of N53.15billion constituted almost a quarter of the debt legacy.
Others are External Debt, N17.48billion; Unpaid Salaries and Allowances, Aug. to Dec. 2016, N17.27billion; and Jan. to Feb. 2017, N6,91billion, Ondo State Pension Liabilities, N4.80billion; Ondo State Gratuity, N15.04billion; Unpaid Local Government Salaries and Allowances Aug. to Dec. 2016, N9.3billion; Jan. to Feb. 2017, N5.19billion.
Local Government Pension Liabilities of N25.23billion; Local Government Gratuities N20,96billion; Contractors’ Liabilities N39.74billion; Outstanding payment requests in the Office of the Accountant-General without cash backing, N5.45billion made up the rest of the debt profile.
However, Akeredolu promised to provide the needed leadership to move the state forward and make life more abundant for the people.
“We will continue to strive to keep that vow within the available resources. We can turn things around positively,’’ he said.
The governor also congratulated the commissioners and special assistants, adding that they should use this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the people.
Mr Femi Agagu, who spoke on behalf of other commissioners, thanked the governor for the privilege given them to serve the people.
“We are aware that your administration has a blueprint to transform the state. Collectively, we will take the state to a glorious destination.
“We pledge to discharge our duties faithfully and with the fear of God. We will defend the oath we have sworn to and we will uphold this honour you have bestowed on us,” Agagu said.
The commissioners are Mr Taofiq Abdusallam, Mr Rasheed Badmus, Mr Solagbade Amodeni, Chief Adegboyega Adefarati, Mr Saka Yusuf-Ogunleye, Mrs Omowumi Olatunji, Mr Donald Ojogo, Mr Yemi Olowolabi and Dr Wahab Adegbenro.
Others are; Mr Funso Esan, Mr Wale Akinterinwa, Pastor Emmanuel Igbasan, Alhaji Olurimisi Ismaila, Mr Femi Agagu, Prof. Bayonle Ademodi, Mrs Julianah Fagbemi, Mr Timilehin Adelegbe and Mr Kola Olawole.
The special advisers sworn in include Mr Victor Olabimtan, Mrs Olubukola Ademosu, Mr Tunji Ariyomo, Mr Tobi Ogunleye, and Mr Akinboye Oyewunmi.
Others are Dr Olawunmi Ilawole, Dr Jibayo Adeyeye, Mr Tunji Fabiyi, Mr Alaba Isijola, and Mr Raheem Aminu.
Former Gov. Olusegun Mimiko handed over to Akeredolu on Feb.24, 2017.

Police DPO Arrested For Colluding With Junior Officer To Aide Ritual Killer’s Escape

A Divisional Police Officer in Rivers State has been arrested on the orders of the State Police Command for his alleged involvement in the escape of one Ifeanyi Dike (pictured) who killed an eight-year-old for alleged money ritual, Punchng reports.
A reliable police source disclosed that the DPO, who was arrested on Monday, was deeply involved in telephone calls between him and Johnbosco Okoroeze, a dismissed police sergeant, which indicated that there was a premeditated action by him to allow the suspected ritual killer to escape.
It was gathered that while preparations were ongoing by both the father of the deceased, Dr. Ernest Nmezuwuba, and the suspect (Dike) to write their statements, several calls were received from the said DPO by Okoroeze.
The top police source said, “We have enough evidence to believe that the DPO was working hand in hand with the ex-sergeant, who has been remanded in police custody. The DPO has been arrested.
Even the father of the girl that was killed had said that there was communication with the IPO (dismissed sergeant) handling the matter and somebody that has not been disclosed. This happened while they were bringing the suspected ritual killer to the State Police Headquarters.
All these and many more will serve as evidence against the DPO, who we believe has a lot to explain about his possible involvement in the escape of Ifeanyi Dike, who killed an eight-year-old boy, ostensibly for money ritual.”
Ifeanyi Dike had allegedly raped, killed and removed vital organs of an eight-year-old girl, Victory Chikamso, before escaping from police custody. He was able to escape because one of the policemen on duty on Saturday night had unlocked the handcuffs for him to write his statement.
