  • How My Husband Deceived Me, Introduced His Lover To Me As His Aunt - Woman Makes Stunning Claim
    [Image: sad%20woman.JPG]

    An Oke-Ogbere Customary Court in Ibadan on Thursday dissolved a three- year marriage between one Temilade Oyeyemi and her husband, Ayo Oyeyemi, over deception and adultery, NAN reports.
     
    Court president, Mr. Sulaiman Olaniyi, said, “In the interest of peaceful living, the union between Temilade and Ayo has ceased to be.

    “Temilade shall take custody of the two-and-a-half-year-old child produced by the union while Ayo shall pay a monthly allowance of N3,000 for the child’s upkeep in addition to being responsible for his welfare.”
     
    Olaniyi, who also held that no form of deception could last forever, advised young men to take care of their parents so as not to incur the wrath of God.
     
    Temilade, 28, narrating her ordeal, told the court that her husband deceived her by presenting his concubine to her as his aunt.
     
    “After I had pledged my future in marriage with Ayo three years ago, he completely deceived me that his concubine was his aunt.

    “During the wedding, he introduced the same woman to my family as the only person that could stand in place of his late mother; and my family, unknowingly, accepted his deception.

    “Ayo then took me to his mistress’s apartment to live,’’ she said.
     
    Temilade said that the lady gave her all that she needed and she was happy living with the two secret lovers.
     
    “However, I noticed that at around 1 a.m. on most days, Ayo would leave my side on our matrimonial bed.
     
    “He would move to the floor where his secret lover he referred to as his aunt was sleeping to romance and have sex with her.

    “He often would blame the hot weather for his usually reason for leaving my side to sleep on the floor.

    “It then became clear to me that Ayo and that lady were never related but that they were, in fact, secret lovers.’’
     
    Temilade said that when she was pregnant, Ayo never took care of her but he abandoned his responsibilities to his parents-in-law.
     
    “Ayo is not trustworthy, he is a wicked man,’’ dissolve our union Temilade said.
     
    The respondent, Ayo, 38, conceded to the dissolution of the marriage after he had denied some of the allegations leveled against him by Temilade.
     
    Ayo, who claimed to be a building engineer, contended that his wife was a good-for-nothing and lazy woman.
     
    “My lord, I am responsible for my cooking and washing; I have all along catered for Temilade’s needs,” Ayo said.
     
    In his testimony, Ayo’s father, however, pointed out that his son was a terrible husband and a fornicator.
     
    “Ayo never told anybody in the family about his wedding and we are surprised about how everything has turned out.

    “No one knows the concubine he is parading as his aunt.

    “In fact, Ayo has never taken care of me since I had an accident in 2010.

    “I am praying this court to settle the matter for them,” Ayo’s father begged.
     
    Some of Temilade’s family members in their separate testimonies presented evidence of how Ayo maltreated the petitioner and prayed the court to terminate the union.
     
    The News Agency of Nigeria  reports that Temilade resides in Agbeni area while Ayo lives in Monatan area of Ibadan.

  • A man has confessed before the police how he killed his pregnant wife and two daughters in Colorado. [Image: killer-husband.JPG]



    A Colorado man confessed Wednesday to killing his pregnant wife and their two young daughters, a day after authorities launched an investigation into their mysterious disappearance, reports said.

     
    Chris Watts, 33, admitted killing 34-year-old Shanann Watts, who was 15 weeks pregnant, and daughters Celeste, 3, and Bella, 4, FOX31 Denver reported, citing a family source.
     
    Two law enforcement officials reportedly told the Denver Channel that Watts confessed to the killings, and that authorities believe they know the location of the bodies.
     
    Watts was detained and awaiting charges, authorities in the town of Frederick tweeted early Thursday.
     
    A pickup truck was towed from outside the Watts' home Wednesday night, FOX31 reported. A makeshift memorial was also set up outside the family’s home overnight, the station said.
     
    The mother and daughters were first reported missing in Frederick, about 30 miles north of Denver, on Monday. Local police asked for the public’s assistance the following day. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation and the FBI later joined the investigation.
     
    Nickole Utoft, a close friend of Shanann Watts, told FOX 31 she had last seen Watts at her home about 2 a.m. Monday when they got home from a work trip. The two planned to get together later that day.
     
    When Shanann Watts didn’t answer her phone, Utoft said she called police.
     
    Shanann Watts’ purse, keys and phone were found at the home during a welfare check. Chris Watts had told reporters earlier Wednesday that he was traumatized by the disappearance and was hoping for his family's safe return.
     
    “It’s not something I could ever, ever fathom would happen in my lifetime, and I have no inclination of where she is," he said at the time. "She said she was going to a friend's house with the kids and that’s the last thing I heard, and that was it. It was very vague."
     
    When the Denver Channel asked if he thought his wife just took off, Watts responded: “Right now I don’t want to just throw anything out there. I hope that she’s somewhere safe right now and with the kids.
     
    “But could she have just taken off? I don’t know, but if somebody has her and they’re not safe, I want them back now.”
     
    Watts told the station that he and his wife “had an emotional conversation” the night before her disappearance and said he’ll “leave it at that,” when asked if they had an argument.
     
    Watts said he waited up the previous night “with every light in the house on,” unable to sleep from not knowing whether his family was safe.
     
    “I was hoping I would just get run over by the kids running in the door, just barrel rushing me, but it didn’t happen,” he said. “It was just a traumatic night.”
     
    When asked about his relationship with his children, Watts said they were “his life” and that their “smiles light up my life.”
     
    He said he missed telling his kids at dinner that “you got to eat that or you’re not going to get your dessert.” He also said he missed cuddling with them on the couch.“It was tearing me apart last night,” he said.
     
    “I just want everybody to come home. Wherever they’re at, come home. That’s what I want,” he told the station.
     
    The station concluded the interview asking what would Watts tell his wife and kids if they could see the interview. 
     
    Watts, looking directly into the camera, said: “Shannan, Bella, Celeste, if you’re out there just come back. If somebody has her, just bring her back. I just need to see everybody. I need to see everybody again. This house is not complete without anybody here. Please bring her back."
     
    Town officials said they would provide an update Thursday at 10:30 a.m. local time.

  • A government official has revealed how at least 400 snakes of different varieties are being exported from Nigeria to Liverpool in England every month. 



    [Image: snake-medicine.jpg]Authorities of the Snakebite Treatment and Research Centre, Kaltungo in Gombe state, have revealed that over 400 snakes of different varieties are being exported from the centre to Liverpool in England every month.

     
    Abubakar Ballah, officer in charge of the centre, who made the disclosure to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaltungo on Thursday, said the snakes exported served as raw material for the production of anti-snake venom.
     
    “The manufacturers extract the venom from the snakes to produce the drugs,” he said.
     
    He said the raw material provided for the processing of the anti-snake venom made the drugs cheaper in Nigeria when compared with countries that did not supply raw material for its production.
     
    Mr Ballah said countries that do not supply the raw material were buying a single vial of the drug at the cost of $1,900, which is equivalent to N684,000, while the same drug in Nigeria is N35,000.
     
    According to him, the same drug in the United States for rattle snake that undergoes the same process of production costs between N7 million and 8 million, which is very expensive.
     
    He said the centre engaged people within Kaltungo and its environs to catch the snakes and package same, at the cost of between N500 and N1, 000 per snake, depending on the size reptile.
     
    The officer in charge said the snakes were usually taken to Abuja from Kaltungo, from they are packaged and exported to England.
     
    “On arrival in England, they will undergo some screening to ensure they have not suffered because Animal Rights Organisations are on the watch; after following the process, drug production commences,” he said.
     
    NAN reports that Kaltungo town in Kaltungo Local Government Area of Gombe, popularly called the ‘Snake Haven’ lies within the Snake belt region of Northern Nigeria, and is known for its abundance of different species of snakes.
     
    The common species found in the area are Carpets Viper, Puff Adder and Cobra.

  • A Nigerian man who died in Canada after officers forcefully tried to remove him from the country has been identified. Widow Of Nigerian Man Who Died While Resisting Deportation From Canada Cries Out For Help (Photo)
    [img]webkit-fake-url://ac0c64e9-2e0b-4aa0-8c22-997153cc665f/imagepng[/img]

     

    The wife of the 49-year-old Nigerian man who died in Calgary, Canada has been left inconsolable since the news of her husband's death reached her.
     
    The man died after a confrontation with two officers, who were charged to ensure his deportation, last week Wednesday. He was identified as Bolanle Idowu Alo, according to Calgary Eyeopener. 
     
    The unnamed wife has called for investigation over the husband's death.
     
    Before his death, Alo was on board a KLM flight destined for Amsterdam. The altercation occurred prior to takeoff. The plane was forced to return to the gate, where the Calgary police airport unit was called to the scene.
     
    Officers found him in medical distress. He was rushed to hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Alo first arrived in Canada in 2005, making a refugee claim.
     
    He was, however, denied at every stage and ordered removed from Canada in February 2018. The documents said he had been cooperative with the Canada Border Services Agency, but maintained he didn’t want to return to Nigeria.
     
    “Mr. Alo is adamant that he will face harm if he is returned to Nigeria and has consistently told officers that he will not return to Nigeria on his own and that he would only return if he is forced to,” stated the documents.
     
    Once he was ordered removed, Nigerian High Commission officers interviewed Alo and raised concerns that he could become violent.
     
    “Mr. Alo’s statements have increased from statements such as ‘I will not go back’ … to statements like “You will have to carry me like a dead man because I’m not going to my death,” said one of the CBSA documents.
     
    His widow, who lives in Lagos with the couple’s two children, is said to be “heartbroken” and hoping for details about the circumstances that led to her husband’s death.

  • [Image: Boko.jpg]


    According to Premium Times, a UN report has revealed that the predominance of the cash economy is a major factor fuelling the nefarious activities of the Boko Haram and other terrorist groups in the Lake Chad Basin region.
     
    This was contained in the 22nd Report of the Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team, pursuant to resolution 2368 (2017) concerning Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant – ISIL – (Da’esh), Al-Qaida and associated individuals and entities.
     
    The report identified extortion, charitable donations, smuggling, remittances and kidnapping as parts of ways Boko Haram is funded.
     
    The report was submitted to the Security Council Committee pursuant to resolutions 1267 (1999), 1989 (2011) and 2253 (2015) concerning ISIL (Da’esh), Al-Qaida and associated individuals, groups, undertakings and entities.
     
    The Boko Haram insurgency in Northern Nigeria has caused over 100,000 deaths. The activities of the country’s security forces have largely limited the terrorists to three North-east states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe. Nigerian forces are also working with those of neighbouring countries, Chad and Niger, in a multi-national force to defeat the terrorists.
     
    In its report, the UN said the number of doctrinally based non-governmental organisations sending funds to local terrorist groups was growing, and Member States were concerned that radicalisation was increasing the threat level in the Sahel.
     
    The report said: “Meanwhile, Boko Haram (QDe.138) and the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) have had a similar impact in their areas of control, including the Lake Chad basin.

    “The predominance in the region of the cash economy, without controls, is conducive to terrorist groups funded by extortion, charitable donations, smuggling, remittances and kidnapping.

    “In Nigeria, 111 schoolgirls from the town of Dapchi were kidnapped on 18 February 2018 and released by ISWAP on 21 March 2018 in exchange for a large ransom payment,” the report stated.
     
    The report was signed by Edmund Fitton-Brown, Coordinator, Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team, who said the report was “comprehensive and independent”, and Kairat Umarov, Chair, Security Council Committee.
     
    The UN Security Council committee on al Qaeda sanctions blacklisted and imposed sanctions on the Islamist militant group Boko Haram in 2014 after the insurgents kidnapped more than 200 Chibok schoolgirls.
     
    The designation, which came into effect after no objections were raised by the Security Council’s 15 members, subjected Boko Haram to UN sanctions, including an arms embargo, asset freeze and travel ban.
     
    The UN Security Council had last week said it remained concerned at the security and humanitarian situation caused by the Boko Haram terrorists and other armed groups in Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad.
     
    In a Presidential Statement, the 15-member body regretted that Central African countries were beset by ongoing terrorist activity, instability and the effects of climate change, and asked Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to review the work of the UN Regional Office for Central Africa (UNOCA), and recommend areas for improvement.
     
    The presidential statement read: “The Security Council strongly condemns all terrorist attacks carried out in the region, including those perpetrated by Boko Haram and the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as Daesh).
     
    “These attacks have caused large-scale and devastating losses, have had a devastating humanitarian impact including through the displacement of a large number of civilians in Nigeria, Cameroon and Chad, and represent a threat to the stability and peace of West and Central Africa.

    “The Council notes with particular concern the continuing use by Boko Haram of women and girls as suicide bombers, which has created an atmosphere of suspicion towards them and made them targets of harassment and stigmatisation in affected communities, and of arbitrary arrests by security forces.

    “The Council emphasises the need for affected States to counter-terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, including by addressing the conditions conducive to the spread of terrorism, in accordance with obligations under international law, in particular international human rights law, international refugee law and international humanitarian law”.
     
    The Security Council welcomed the support provided by UNOCA and the UN Office for West Africa and Sahel (UNOWAS) for the development of a joint regional strategy to address the root causes of the Lake Chad Basin crisis through regular contact with regional leaders.
     
    The Council encouraged partners to increase security assistance to Lake Chad Basin Commission countries, and humanitarian and development support across the region for those affected by Boko Haram activities.
     
    “The Security Council remains deeply concerned at the grave security situation and related violations and abuses of human rights in parts of Central Africa, in particular the continuing terrorist activities of Boko Haram and other terrorist groups in the Lake Chad Basin,” it said.

    “The Security Council expresses its ongoing concern at continued tensions linked to disputed electoral processes, social and economic difficulties, and conflicts between farmers and herders,” the statement added.
     
    The 15-member Council noted that UNOCA’s priorities would include to work closely with UNOWAS to address trans-regional issues such as maritime security in the Gulf of Guinea, conflict between farmers and herders, and combating Boko Haram.

  • A married pastor has been exposed by a Judge after he fathered a child with one of his church members. 

    A Ghanaian pastor, Martin Kofi Danso, based in Canada has been exposed after he impregnated and fathered a child with an ex church member.
     
    The case was exposed after a Canadian judge, Justice Fred Myers, on Tuesday dismissed a request by the pastor to extend a publication ban that would keep his identity secret in the paternity case just because the publicity could damage his reputation and hurt him financially
     
    According to The Toronto Star, Myers removed the publication ban, which another judge had imposed at the end of July, exposing the pastor, who was in court on allegations that he had fathered a six-month-old child with former church member, Chris-Ann Bartley.
     
    Martin Kofi Danso, who is the founder of Miracle Arena for All Nations, which operates 17 churches had in a sworn affidavit filed with the court claimed he had never had intimate relations with Bartley.
     
    Danso’s lawyer, Daniel Robertson, argued that without anonymity, his client will face “emotional, harm, and stress,” particularly if allegations involving other members of the church are released to the broader public.
     
    “He’s a public figure. He is not someone who will not be harmed by certain allegations,” Robertson said.
     
    “It cuts both ways, doesn’t it?” replied the judge. “That also brings about the possibility of a public interest when somebody’s out there with 17 churches raising charitable money and tells a couple of big, fat whoppers in a sworn affidavit.”
     
    According to the Miracle Arena website, “Prophet Danso” is a devoted father of four who travels the world “impacting and empowering millions of lives through his powerful preaching and teaching ministry.”
     
    His wife, JoAnne Danso, is a reverend in the church known as “Mama.”
     
    Court heard Tuesday she is expecting twins in the near future.
     
    This case is coming two years after the pastor was gifted a private jet by his church members

    The Catholic Church Should Be Ashamed Of Itself: Letting priests fcuk kids has to be the worst thing ever.

    The Catholic church has done a lot of good things for the earth. However, good things do not cancel out bad things. And the Catholic church must face opprobrium and many of its leaders damnation for the evil they have meted on children and their futures.

    I have always been suspicious of men who say they will forfeit sex for all of their days. There is something unnatural about such a vow. Apostle Paul did show admiration for those who “will not marry for the Kingdom sake”, however he was quick to say that those who cannot hold themselves should marry.

    The Catholic church priests take vows of chastity, celibacy and poverty. Wow! Great ideals. But how has the church held its priests to it? Have they? Or instead has the church been facilitators and co-conspirators and cover up artists of these very sick men?

    Now before you stand up in anger over what you perceive as insult to you beloved Catholic church, WHAT IS THE ANUS OF YOUR SEVEN YEARS OLD SON WORTH TO YOU? What is the hymen of your 9 years old daughter worth? How would you feel if your son who you gave to God as a mass server is being fcuked by priests in turns and years later your son is so traumatized he becomes gay, a drug addict, depressed and suicidal? That is what these beast called priests have done to other people’s children. Do you really want to defend the church that allowed this happen?

    Again, the Catholic church has done a lot for humanity, including what is today organized nursing and mental hospitals etc. But one good deed does not cancel out bad deeds and the Catholic church has been a den of evil when it comes to sex and abuse and pedophilia and rape and sadomasochism and every sexual evil that exists.

    So you know, the Catholic church does not sack priests that rape even a boy of 5 years.

    Do you know they do not report these animals to the police for prosecution?

    Do you know the hierachy of the church, all the way to the Pope, hide this crime from the police and congregation?

    Do you know all they do is transfer these devilish priests to new parishes and leave other children at the mercy of these predators?

    In Pennsylvania, over 300 …. THREE HUNDRED PRIESTS have FCUKED over 1000 children… CHILDREN!!! Your baby, your little babies, these animals have RAPED these kids and passed them from one to the other and for years. And THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS BEEN AWARE and have spent years and years covering up these animals. Maybe the church is taking this passage “blessed are those whose sins are covered” too literally. And this 1000 plus kids are the children that spoke up. Many many manyyyy other parents and children must have hid the rape and SODOMY from the world and internalized this abuse and went about their lives DAMAGED ETERNALLY.

    And yes, the Catholic church has spent billions buying people’s silence. Enough evidence of this lines the US legal system discoverable by simple google search. If it is a crime to help a thief escape justice, think of the CRIMINALS THAT LINE THE HIERARCHY OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

    In fairness to Pope Francis and the Catholic church of recent, there is a zero-tolerance for such evil in the church. Yet a lot of the recorded rape and sodomy has happened in the last 10 years.

    And yet the church does not excommunicate a priest that ruins the life of children

    They allow these devils continue as priests or merely remove them from working as preachers in a church

    Instead of going to JAIL and being committed to Satan forever

    Enough of homosexuals, pedophiles and rapists hiding under the Catholic Church. ENOUGH!!!

    And even if these gay priests were fcuking themselves instead of children, at least we would say it is a case of two consenting adults

    But to be fcuking children and being covered by the church?

    ENOUGH!!!

    The Catholic church should be ashamed of itself. They are a disgrace to Christ and all that is good.

    And yes, I was born a Catholic and my dad continues to be Catholic

    But the Catholic Church should hide her head in shame.

    Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Wednesday called for the immediate release of Premium Times Newspapers reporter, Samuel Ogundipe, who was arrested and detained by the police over a report.

    The party condemned the alleged denial of personal freedom and manhandling of the newspaper’s Editor-in-Chief, Musikilu Mojeed, and its education correspondent, Azeezat Adedigba by the police.

    PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan, said the continued detention of Ogundipe is against his fundamental right to freedom as enshrined in the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

    The party added that the incessant clampdown on journalists and media houses by the Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration is “completely unacceptable in a democracy and only reminiscent of military Decree 4 of 1984 that empowers then dictatorial regime to arrest and detain journalists over reports considered to be against its interest.”

    PDP called on the media and all lovers of democracy and free speech in Nigeria “to speak out against the unabating assault on the media by the APC administration as such poses a huge threat to our democracy and the rights of citizens in our country.”

    Former Nigeria international, Adokiye Amiesimaka has called on football authorities to find out reasons for Chelsea winger, Victor Moses’s retirement from the Super Eagles.

    Moses, in an Instagram post on Wednesday, explained that he will no longer feature for the Super Eagles but wants to focus on his family and Chelsea.

    Speaking to Vanguard, Amiesimaka said there was more to the retirement than the reason Moses gave.

    He said: “At 27, Moses may have been forced to quit because of issues of that nature that that may not be known to the ordinary football fan.

    “There could be more to it than meets the eye. It is worth finding out. He is still young and can still play for Nigeria.

    “At 27, Victor Moses should be at the peak of his career. Ronaldo and Messi are in their 30s and are still with their national teams. It means playing for Nigeria was a distraction.”

    On why he retired from international football at 24, Adokiye said “I left because of the nonchalant, nasty, shoddy manner football officials treated footballers then.

    “I was not a professional footballer because I was a lawyer, it is just that I was naturally endowed with footballing skill. We went to a tour of East and South Africa and I sustained an injury. When we returned, it was like ‘to your tents O Israel’ and I was left to treat myself. And I said to myself, what rubbish. And I quit.”

    Former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has enjoined Nigerians not to lose hope in the face of impunity, persecution and maladministration noting that “anything evil cannot last for long.”.

    Jonathan stated this at the 2018 new yam festival of the Obi of Obinugwu and Chairman, Igbo Traditional Rulers Forum, Eze (Dr) Cletus Ilomuanya in Orlu Council Area of Imo State.

    The former president urged Nigerians to appreciate and always endorse goodness and character above parochial momentary interests.

    “We must appreciate goodness even when threatened with persecution because evil doesn’t last for long. A leader must be prepared to face a lot of challenges at some point in life, which is what leadership often entails,” he said.

    Also speaking, the former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon Emeka Ihedioha described Jonathan as “a friend in need and a friend indeed.”

    According to him, the former president remains a reference point in leadership in Africa, stressing that Jonathan has laid a lasting foundation for all other succeeding presidents to build upon.

    hedioha commended the Obinugwu Community for their spirit of oneness and resilence.

    “We associate ourselves with what former President Jonathan has said. We made mistakes and have also learnt from our mistakes,” he said.

    The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday said President Muhammadu Buhari’s “poor understanding of current global economic dynamics and his cover of humongous corruption in his presidency have completely wrecked the nation and is directly responsible for the accumulated N22 trillion national debt burden.”

    PDP said Buhari should heed wise counsel from it to allow competent hands manage the nation’s economy.

    A statement by PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan said, “Since President Buhari assumed office and took control of our once robust economy, his administration has not been able to articulate any germane policy to sustain, let alone, grow the economy, but had instead, resorted to borrowing, while allowing his cronies and APC leaders to fritter away trillions of naira earned by the nation in the last three years.

    “Why would the Buhari administration not accumulate debts when it has continued to cover up corrupt practices under its watch, including the alleged stealing of N9 trillion, through underhand oil contracts in the NNPC and Ministry of Petroleum Resources as well as the alleged illegal lifting of crude oil worth N1.1 trillion by 18 unregistered companies to service APC interests, among others.

    “Moreover, the Buhari Presidency has refused to explain the whereabouts of trillions of naira unremitted oil revenue, resulting in the deadlock at the Federal Accounts Allocation Committee (FAAC).

    “If these monies were properly accounted for and utilized, Nigeria will not be in this dire economic situation which has brought hunger and starvation on Nigerians and rendered millions of compatriots jobless, while President Buhari and his officials live in affluence.”

    PDP recalled the various “red flags by international agencies, including Transparency International and the World Bank on the poor management of our economy. Besides, the Presidency has been concealing the fact that Petroleum sector under President Buhari has been inducted into the FOI Hall of Shame by Media Rights Agenda (MRA) following government’s relentless secrecy and violation of rules in the sector.

    “We invite Nigerians to note that since President Buhari intensified his re-election bid, there have been huge dearth in investment inflow, further depreciation of the naira and a dangerous slide in the capital market, all signposting that our nation will continue to face perilous time as long as President Buhari is on the saddle with his array of persons with doubtful credentials as ministers and special advisers,” the party noted.

    The opposition party also urged the President to take “responsibility for the escalated debt, stop offering excuses and get ready to accept defeat and quit the stage in 2019, so that more competent Nigerians can revamp our economy on the platform of the repositioned PDP.”

    The Nigerian gas sector outlook may remain bleak if lingering challenges, especially unfavourable regulatory framework and poor monetary policies are not addressed.
    Nigeria had 5,111 bcm of proven natural gas reserves as of 2014 and ranks ninth among nations with huge natural gas reserves in the world, but gas production remained relatively low when compared with the large amount of proven reserves.
    Stakeholders in the sector, including President, Nigerian Gas Association (NGA), Dada Thomas, President of Nigerian Association for Energy Economics (NAEE), Prof. Wumi Iledare, Former President, Nigerian Association of Petroleum Explorationists (NAPE), Abiodun Adesanya, told The Guardian that fiscal policies, especially the monetary policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), lacked sanctity of agreement.

    They added that uncertainties created by political interests in the country would continue to frustrate foreign direct investment into the sector in the face of growing gas discoveries across the world and massive projects in the US and Asia.

    According to them, the situation will hinder development of gas value chain in the country, limit gas based industrial potentials, particularly for the manufacturing and power sectors, create revenue shortfall and reduce the country’s ranking in the international market as well as limit job creation potentials.

    Thomas said investors, especially those, who would primarily invest in gas fields and infrastructure have been hindered by a 2015 policy by the CBN, which stipulated that all transactions in Nigeria must be settled in naira and at the apex bank’s rate, not minding that most gas transactions are in dollars.Besides, the inability of the government to pass the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) to address the challenges affecting the sector would also continue to delay the development of the sector, the NGA President said.

    To him, capping the price of gas and influencing electricity billings against market realities, remained unacceptable.“The major reasons why investors are not coming into the Nigerian space to invest are that nobody wants to invest in a project in which they don’t get their money back and they can’t get their money out of the country. Also the nature of gas project in Nigeria is challenging. Customers especially the power sector have been taking gas and not paying for gas.

    “When you want to attract investors to a sector in a country either locally or internationally, you use fiscal policy, so that when they do their economics of a project, it is good and positive and they can take their money back to bank from where they borrowed.“Nigeria has no respect for sanctity of agreement. Contracts and agreements have become worthless, in most cases when you are dealing with government companies and power plant. We need to address all these problems as a nation if we are going to get off this darkness,” Thomas said.

    Professor Iledare raised concerns about the manner in which Nigeria is missing viable opportunities, stressing that politicking and the uncertainty in the country’s regulatory structure, especially the non-passage of PIB post critical challenges to the projects. Iledare said while government plans to attract investment, the right frameworks that would bring investments on board are lacking.

    “Three things are beclouding the sector; the downturn of the global LNG market, the lack of conducive political environment and investors’ perception of non passage of PIB,” he said.According to him, the industry is too risky to deal with market and political uncertainties, adding, transparency, accountability and governance of the industry are still key challenges.

    Iledare said: “We use to be number two in the gas market globally, now we are number five and trying to bring our way back to number four when train seven comes on stream. Governance, stability in taxation regime and sanctity of contracts are too important, those are what investors look at.”Abiodun said the country’s risk index is posting a serious challenge to inflow of foreign direct investment into the oil and gas sector.

    While availability of gas feed remained a key challenge holding down projects, Abiodun said there was need to invest into dry gas fields to get more gas for the country.
    According to him, since the market opportunities are dynamic, Nigeria must know that other countries are gaining our potential markets.

  • Senate President, Bukola Saraki has opened to a foreign media platform that he is considering running against President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 general election. [Image: bukola-saraki-1%20(2).jpg]






    While speaking in an exclusive interview with Bloomberg at his residence at the federal capital, Abuja, the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, considered running against President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2019 presidential election in February 2019.
     
    The 56-year-old said: “I am consulting and actively considering it. I believe I can make the change.

    “The PDP has learnt its lesson from the loss in 2015, and I think unfortunately the APC did not learn from their victory.

    "While negotiating with the PDP “we listed a number of issues. We talked about how to sustain and improve the fight against corruption; the issue of providing more powers to the states; inclusion and having a more nationalistic approach on things we do; to continue to improve the environment that will ensure investments. 

    "We listed a number of items during the discussions with the PDP, and there is a written agreement to that. We trust that we can hold them to that.

    “We would ensure that the party is strong on security. The APC too have not done well on the issue of security. We have the opportunity with the right kind of presidential candidate and president to provide the leadership for the party. The party has a good opportunity to lead the country in the right direction.”
     
    The Senate President also spoke of the Department of State Services (DSS) blockade of the national assembly, wondering what would happen during next year’s elections.
     
    “If a government can go and lock up an arm of government - and it’s never happened in our history, we should all be very concerned. We should not be surprised that they would use security agencies for elections.”
     
    Saraki also alleged that investors have lost confidence in the Buhari government, criticising the current administration’s handling of fuel subsidy.
     
    “Most of the inflows that have come in are merely hot money, and that is because the oil price has gone up. Investment in the real sector is not seen. 

    "The private sector, in my view, has probably taken a position that the confidence is not there in the government. The country requires a government that is truly pro-business, and a president that sees himself as a chief marketing officer.” 
     
    Speaking on the involvement of security forces in political matters, Saraki said: “There has been a persistent disregard for due process and a lack of neutrality for some of these issues. 
     
    "For you to have credible elections, you must have safe elections. Security agencies are actively getting involved in the politics.

    “The fundamentals of whatever we are going to develop is going to be based on sound democracy, credible elections, freedom of choice of Nigerians. If we don’t have that as a foundation, then everything else cannot happen.”

  • A Nigerian prophet has made a shocking proclamation concerning Senate President Bukola Saraki, should he contest against Buhari in 2019.[Image: Saraki.jpg]


    A renowned seer, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, has warned politicians to be mindful of the fights happening between the Senate and the Presidency, saying that it could result in the disintegration of Nigeria.

     
    Ayodele, who is the founder of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, warned that the ‘political coup’ being allegedly hatched by politicians over the raging National Assembly crisis may lead to the collapse of democracy in Nigeria.
     
    He further added that the 2019 generl elections will be tougher than 2015.
     
    The clergyman predicted that embattled Senate President, Bukola Saraki will win the presidential election if he grabs the ticket of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
     
    Ayodele spoke on Wednesday in his native Ikere-Ekiti at an empowerment programme he organized in memory of his late father, Elder Olalekan Oluwadare Ayodele, who passed on fifteen years ago.
     
    Ayodele also advised Ekiti State governor-elect, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, to listen to the people for him to succeed in his administration.
     
    He advised Fayemi to carry the people along in his day-to-day running of the government, promising to be part of the people to checkmate the governor-elect when his regime takes off.
     
    Ayodele advised the All Progressives Congress (APC) to put its house in order in Osun State to achieve victory at the September 22 governorship election.
     
    He said the Osun APC has the “right candidate” adding that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has to take lots of drastic action before making headway.
     
    Commenting on the state of the nation, Ayodele said: “We need somebody to restructure this country, it is either we restructure or we disintegrate. The government in power hates the truth.”
     
    On the National Assembly crisis, he said: “Whatever they are dong in the Senate or in government, that is their own problem.

    “I had said that nobody can remove Saraki, I don’t know Saraki, I have not met Saraki and I don’t know Akpabio. The issue of Saraki, I am not interested because I am not a politician.

    “Who is that politician that is not corrupt and who is that politician that does not steal money? Saraki is one of the anointed persons in this country. I don’t see Atiku going too far.”

    “I am not defending Saraki but if Saraki is removed, PDP will sink and if PDP wants to move forward and Saraki having the ticket, PDP will win.

    “This country needs prayers, the country will break. Nigerian democracy will fizzle out, PDP and APC will fizzle out. This political coup they are planning will damage the country.

    “The 2019 election will be tougher than that of 2015. I see storms but we will still survive.”

    The landlord arrested alongside gang members
     
    A 43-year old landlord, Taoreed Adegbite and father of four has been arrested by men of the Nigeria police in Ogun state for leading a gang of armed robbers to rob his  neighbour, Mr Wale Okeyingbo and robbing him of his vehicle at Oke-Odo Community.
     
    Taoreed was arrested along with his accomplice, Taiwo Raheem, a herbal seller at Oke-Ata area of Abeokuta on Wednesday while trying elope with the vehicle.
     
    According to the victim, Okeyingbo, Taoreed was his close neighbour and friend, who taught him how to drive the same vehicle three years ago.

    “It was about past 3:00am when I heard gunshot from my neighbour’s house and I started praying that they should not come to my house. Before I know it, they were already at my door trying to break in, when they could not come in, they demanded for my car key; so I threw it to them from the window. Then they kept asking for money and I told them I don’t have money and that they should please go.

    “When they left my place, I picked my phone to call my neighbours, so they helped me to call Lafenwa Divisional Police Station. The police then went after them and the vehicle was recovered from them at Oke-Ata and that was where I discovered that the man who led the gang was my neighbour who taught me how to drive with the same car he stole,” he said.
