South African President, Jacob Zuma given until November 30 to defend corruption charges him



South African President, Jacob?Zuma given until November 30 to defend corruption charges him
South African president, Jacob Zuma who was recently honoured with a huge statue by the Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha has been given till November 30, 2017 to defend the corruption charges against him in his country.

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) told Zuma yesterday that it will only consider new representations on why he should not face corruption charges by the said date.

This comes after the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) earlier this month dismissed an application by Zuma and the NPA to appeal a High Court ruling that the 2009 decision to drop 18 corruption charges against him was irrational. The charges related to Zuma's alleged involvement in the country’s multi-billion rand arms deal.

NPA spokesperson Luvuyo Mfaku detailed the timeline for Zuma’s possible prosecution, including that he has until November 30 to make representations as to why the prosecuting authority should not charge him with corruption. 
 
"The NDPP (National Director of Public Prosecutions) is of the view that, in light of the judgment of the SCA, it appears that any further representations envisaged by Mr Zuma should relate to issues not previously considered," Mfaku said in a statement. 
 
On April 6, 2009, then-NPA head Mokotedi Mpshe said recordings of telephone conversations between then-Scorpions boss Leonard McCarthy and former NPA boss Bulelani Ngcuka showed political interference in the decision to charge Zuma.

Since inception in 2003, NAPTIP says it has convicted 331 persons of human trafficking



Since inception in 2003, NAPTIP says it has convicted 331 persons of human trafficking
The National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, NAPTIP, created on 14th of July 2003 by the Trafficking in Persons (Prohibition) Enforcement and Administration Act 2003 says that 331 persons have been convicted for various human trafficking offences in the country.  

The Director-General, NAPTIP, Julie Okah-Donli, spoke at the agency’s headquarters in Abuja while receiving the United States’ anti-trafficking delegation.  

The delegation was led by the Acting Director, US Trafficking in Persons Office, Washington, DC, Kari JohnStone.  

Okah-Donli, who was represented by the Director, Public Enlightenment, Arinze Orakwe, said, 'we call on the US and other international partners to come up with a policy that will ensure increased surveillance in the form of security checks along the controversial migrating routes especially within the North African countries. This will complement the efforts of Nigeria in combating human trafficking and reduce the associated tragedies. The number of convictions the agency has secured since inception is now 331 as of September 2017. This feat is commendable considering the series of technicalities associated with prosecution of cases such as human trafficking'.

The US director, JohnStone, said the Trafficking in Persons rating done for Nigeria was based on other controversial issues of child soldiers in the North as well as the situation in the Internally Displaced Persons camps in some parts of the country.  The US official noted that the TIP report was not an indictment on NAPTIP, but rather to spur policymakers, government and non-governmental actors to accord the desired attention to curbing the menace of human trafficking.  JohnStone assured that the United States would consider possible assistance to NAPTIP in the areas of awareness creation, capacity development and other operational needs.

"Kwara people who are supporters of Baba Adinni aka Bukola Saraki caged and locked out of the wedding ceremony of the daughter of their great leader. I hear they were locked out so as to prevent them from erupting into nuclear battles over amala, semo or jollof rice. Hunger is real in Kwara State. I don’t even care if Kwarans insult me as usual this morning but this is a disgrace to humanity."

Robert Mugabe removed as WHO goodwill ambassador after only Two days in the post
Days after the World Health Organization named Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe as a goodwill ambassador, a move that angered and stunned human rights activists, it rescinded the appointment.

WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said "I have listened carefully to all who have expressed their concerns, and heard the different issues that they have raised. It is my aim to build a worldwide movement for global health. This movement must work for everyone and include everyone."

Tedros said he consulted the Zimbabwean government and concluded it's in the organization's best interests.

The public health agency announced the appointment on October 19, 2017, saying the African leader would focus on noncommunicable diseases on the continent such as heart attacks and strokes but the public outcry that followed led to the new decision.

3.4 million people suffer malnutrition In North-East Nigeria - United Nations



3.4 million people suffer malnutrition In North-East Nigeria -?United Nations 


In a new report, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN-OCHA) says about 3.4 million people need nutrition assistance due to food crisis caused by the Boko Haram insurgency in North-East Nigeria.

In the report for the month of September, UN-OCHA Humanitarian Situation Report revealed that 2.7 million people were targeted for immediate intervention, adding that only 936,200 people were reached with nutrition support within the period under review.  The report indicates that three Stabilization Centres (SC) were set up at Damboa, Dikwa and Ngala Local Government Areas to enhance management of acute malnutrition.  It says some 60 health personnel were also trained in Borno and Yobe States to enhance operations at the stabilisation centres.

The UN agency added that effective modalities were evolved to streamline the Infant and Young Child Feeding scheme with the Blanket Supplementary Feeding and Emergency Food Distribution programmes to control the scourge.  It adds that the UN in collaboration with humanitarian partners had decentralized activities in 8 local government areas of Borno State to combat malnutrition.

The report lists the affected areas as Damasak; Ngala, Dikwa, Bama, Gwoza, Kukawa, Kala-Balge, Gubio, Nganzai and Guzamala. “The progress toward key indicators is on track except for the management of Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) with medical complications, which remain hampered by the unavailability of services especially in the newly accessible areas. Lack of access to most areas has been the impediment in providing life-saving nutrition support to those in need. Nutrition activities are limited to few areas where humanitarian actors have access and where healthcare structures are in place,” it stated.

It also points out that about 6.5 million U.S. dollars was required to implement five projects and facilitate smooth running of the nutrition support services in the affected communities.  It disclose that a maternal and child health week exercise would be conducted to contain malnutrition in the war ravaged region.  OCHA said that some of the activities line up for the campaign included supplementation of micro-nutrients deficiency, screening and referral of under-5 children.  “The campaign is design to help children who were not assisted under the routine exercises to achieve its target”, adding that mobile outreach is critical in the campaign.

'You are hallucinating, PDP remains the best choice for Nigerians' party tells Lagos APC publicity secretary, Joe Igbokwe



Read the press statement from PDP below:
Our attention has been drawn to a statement credited to the State Publicity Secretary of the Lagos State Chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Mr. Joe Igbokwe in which he insinuated that Nigerians will no longer trust the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with their votes.
Mr. Igbokwe was quoted to have made the Statement while reacting to the Former Governor of Imo State, H. E. Achike Udenwa, who lambasted the APC for its misgovernance and hope that President Buhari will emerge as Candidate of the APC in 2019 to grant the PDP easy ride to victory.
Mr. Igbokwe’s Statement is a clear display of unpatriotism, selfishness, desperation and clear indication of how much the APC leaders and supporters are willing to go, to further plunge the Country beyond the present decay.
It is no longer news that the State of the Nation before we handed over power to this APC failed Administration was better economically, politically, socially and democratically. Nigerians were more united, our foreign and local debt profiles were serviceable and the PDP Government at all levels were more in touch with the people better than what is obtainable today. The Facts are on the Streets!
The Rhetorics of the likes of Igbokwe that those complaining of maladministration and ineptitude of the APC Government were partakers of the so called "looting and corruption" further buttresses our earlier assertion that this APC Administration has express agenda to disorganize the Country, promote sectionalism, cause chaos and then blame it on opposition parties especially, the PDP.
In view of the above and more, we therefore warn Mr. Igbokwe and his anti people collaborators in the APC to keep quiet henceforth since it appears they have nothing else to say to launder the Broken and Dilapidated Image of their Party, the APC. Nigerians are not stupid and will never make the Same Mistake of voting the APC in 2019 or any other Elections in future. Again, the Facts are on the Streets!
To butress, we believe that Mr. Igbokwe is simply hallucinating and requires serious medical attention to think that Nigerians will vote the APC into power again with all round failures of the Party in government at all levels.
Finally, the Oneness and Unity of this Country lies in the Hands of the Electorates and how they will cast their votes in the 2019 Elections. For emphasis, we believe that the Electorates are more informed now, and they know that any vote for the APC in 2019, will be a vote to further promote extreme hunger/starvation, poverty, indebtedness, insecurity, anti-democratic tendencies, etc. But a vote for the PDP at all levels, will be a vote to return to real democracy, good governance, inclusive and participatory government by all sundry irrespective of region, tribe and religion, people-oriented policies and programmes. Indeed, PDP is Government of the People for the People!

Catholic priest dumps priesthood one year after being kidnapped in Kano


A popular Kano based Roman Catholic priest who was kidnapped last year, Father Gospel .J. Inalegwu, has “resigned” from priesthood.
.
According to a report by Sunnews, Fr. Inalegwu has since tendered his resignation letter to the Bishop of Kano Diocese, Most Rev. John Namawzah Niyiring, and has traveled out of the state with all his belongings.
.
A priest of the Catholic Church who decried his action, said the Church was yet to recover from the shock of his unprecedented action. He feels the affected priest might have been affected by the trauma of his abduction, adding however that, “there could be other personal reasons behind his action”.
.
It was gathered that after the priest regained freedom, he was granted a period of rest, but was eventually asked to resume at his old parish contrary to his expectation.
.
According to His Lordship, the Bishop of Kano Diocese, Most Rev. John Namawzah Niyiring, “I had some discussions with him to try to persuade him not to do what he is doing. I think he probably wants something else.”
.
The Bishop went further to debunk insinuations that the priest’s action was informed by his abduction experience, insisting that, “ Long before his kidnap saga, he had voiced out his desire to do what he did. And we have a record of that”
.

The Benue born Catholic priest, who was kidnapped at his parish at St Joseph Catholic Church, Jitan – Dutse, Kano State, was ordained in Kano State in 2013.

Saying someone is “sexy” is obscene. I don’t like being told I’m sexy – Actress Adewuyi

 .
Nollywood actress, Adebola Adewuyi, has revealed that she hates being seen as a sex object. In a recent interview with Vanguardngr, she said: “Well, I really don’t like people telling me things like, I’m sexy and stuff like that.
.

The truth is that when men know you are an actress, the first thing that jumps into their minds, is that, she must be a prostitute. I don’t want you to see me and the next thing that comes to your mind is sexiness. Beautiful is okay but sexy is obscene.”

People who smoke cannabis are just donating madness to themselves – Baba Fryo


Veteran musician ,Baba Fryo, has said that he stopped taking weed and other related substances three years ago, told Sunday Scoop that foolhardiness is what makes artistes abuse drugs and alcohol.
.
He said, “To me, it is just stupidity for one to abuse anything or take hard drugs because I don’t see the benefit. Anyone who takes hard drugs is just ‘donating’ madness to him or herself.
.
Most of these young guys indulge in these things because they either want to show off or are influenced by their friends. As for me, drugs don’t add anything to me. Now, I only take alcohol and that is whenever I am in the midst of friends, but I don’t drink excessively..
I took weed for so many years, but I stopped about three years ago. I asked myself what it was adding to me and I didn’t get any positive answer. I would just be calm and quiet for like four hours and people would keep wondering what was wrong with me.
.

I also calculated the amount of money I was spending monthly to sustain the habit and it occurred to me that this tidy sum could be put to better use. For anyone who takes cocaine or any other type of hard drug, he or she is killing himself gradually.”
