A small group of women this morning gathered at the Federal Secretariat in Abuja, in support of embattled minister of Aviation, Ms Stella Oduah. The women carried placards which read ‘a fight against Stella Oduah is a fight against women’. Erm, I don’t think so..

What-is-Kanye-West-Really-Looking-At-Kim-Kardashian

Yeezus star, Kanye West obviously has a very weird  strange way of expressing his love for his fiancé, Kim Kardashian in public. In fact both are so in love that they don’t really care how and where they express that love.

Both stars were hanging out few days after their famous engagement night and Kanye was just stirring at ‘something else’ other than the 5-carat diamond ring he begged Kim to marry him with in San Francisco. Neither was he looking at her pretty excited face nor her very sexy white lacy dress.

So what was he really looking at which made him smile like a 16 year old college kid?

Hey Kanye, ‘jesus’ won’t love this! lol

The Senate Committee on Aviation yesterday said the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) has confirmed that it purchased 202 vehicles.

It said that FAAN also confirmed that two Lexus Limousines and two Toyota Prado Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) are part of the vehicles.

The Committee said FAAN claimed that two of the vehicles were bought for Aviation Minister Stella Oduah while another two were purchased for the FAAN Managing Director, Mr. George Uriesi.

It said some of the vehicles were bought for the use of directors of FAAN.

Uriesi told the committee that the limousines were bought for N60m each.

He however, said he did not have details of the cost of the Prado SUVs.

He told the committee the cars were in the custody of an unnamed bank which funded the purchase of the four top of the range vehicles.

The MD claimed that the Aviation Minister approved the purchase, while somebody whose name  he did not disclose signed on his (Uriesi) behalf.

Chairman, Senate Committee on Aviation, Senator Hope Uzondinma, spoke on the car purchase at the continued Public Hearing on the crisis in the aviation sector.

Uzodinma said,  ”Investigation is still ongoing and it will not be fair for me to preempt it. FAAN did confirm that among the operational vehicles they purchased, four of them are armoured vehicles, two for the MD and two for the minister.

“We told them (FAAN) to go back and put everything in writing and make a comprehensive statements on all vehicles purchased.

“FAAN said they bought a total number of 202 vehicles for different operations. So until they come back on Monday we cannot rush into conclusion. The MD FAAN said they did a funding arrangement with a commercial bank.”

He said his committee would do a thorough investigation of extra-budgetary spending by the agencies in the Aviation Ministry.

According to him,”This investigation will be a very deep one so that at the end of the day, we do a holistic approach and look at how the sector will be repositioned so that all anomalies will be corrected…”

At least 128 people have died in a five-hour gun battle between troops and members of the outlawed Boko Haram in Damaturu, the Yobe State capital.

According to a report by Associated Press (AP), military and hospital sources claimed that at least 95 militants, 23 soldiers and eight police officers were killed during the encounter.

Details still trickling in days after the Thursday and Friday attack on Damaturu raise doubts about military claims that it has the upper hand in the fight to halt an Islamic uprising in the North-east, nearly six months after the government imposed a state of emergency on Adamawa, Yobe and Borno States.

Reporters saw that the extremists had set ablaze four police command posts and an army barracks where they looted vehicles and weapons.
Police and witnesses said at least two civilians died — a man believed killed by the insurgents and a civil servant shot by soldiers for breaking the curfew.

Meanwhile, the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, Tuesday called on perpetrators of violence in the North to stop killing in the name of religion.

The sultan, while receiving in his palace in Sokoto a delegation led by a former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, said Islam abhorred the killing of innocent people without following due legal process.

According to him, the senseless killings of innocent citizens by insurgents was un-Islamic and should stop forthwith.

He added that such killings have nothing to do with Islam and as such, the Sultanate Council dissociated itself from those perpetrating such dastardly acts.

“Islam abhors killing of innocent souls unless through legal process where the court has sentenced an individual to death for a crime committed in line with Islamic law.

“So, I am calling on those perpetrating such killings in the name of Islam to stop such nefarious acts because what they are doing has nothing to do with Islam and we therefore, dissociate ourselves from such dastardly acts,” he said.
The sultan stressed the need for Muslims to learn to live peacefully with their Christian brothers for peace to reign in the polity.

He explained that they could, through their good conduct and adherence to Islamic tenets, persuade adherents of other religions to convert to Islam based on their good conduct.

He told the delegation, which was in Sokoto to attend the inauguration of the Sokoto State University, that the event had gone beyond celebration, as it was an indication that the administration of Governor Aliyu Wamakko was listening to the yearnings and aspirations of the people.

He lauded the former head of state for his commitment towards peace not only in Nigeria but in the world.

Earlier, Abubakar told the monarch that he was in Sokoto to inaugurate the state university.
He called on Nigerians to give peace a chance, stressing that without peace, there would be no Nigeria.

Abdulsalami was accompanied to the palace by former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, New Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Alhaji Kawu Baraje, Adamawa State Governor Murtala Nyako and other top politicians.

President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday blamed the slow pace of economic development in the country on the several crises being experienced in parts of Nigeria. According to him, the challenges had consistently impeded the growth of the economy and it was out of place for anyone to talk of economic development in a society where there is no peace, when it is common knowledge that for any given economy to develop, there must be internal democracy and stability.

The president stated this while receiving the 2013 Africa Peace Award from the United Religions Initiatives (URI) at the Presidential Villa. This is just as the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting did not hold. Although no reason was given for why the council meeting did not take place, it was learnt that it may not be unconnected to the fact that the president had just arrived the country from Israel in the early hours of yesterday, where he had been since last Wednesday and engaged in a number of activities, and would need to rest.

At the presentation of the award, President Jonathan noted that there was no way any meaningful economic development could take place in a country where its citizens had resorted to settling their differences by fighting.

“Even when countries are fighting, at the end of the day, they still come to the dialogue table to resolve. They have hardly solved any crisis through the barrel of the gun. Even if they had the most sophisticated weapons to fight with, they would still come to negotiate, otherwise you can never live in peace. So let me call on all Nigerians, especially the young people. If you come to the south part of this country you hear about militancy, kidnapping and if you go to the North, you have this issue of Boko Haram.

“For us to develop our country we must all embrace peace. There is no way the government can perform magic when the people are shooting guns, because economic growth and development is in the hands of the private sector,” the president said.

Jonathan noted that it was because of this that the African Union (AU) as well as the Economic Communities of West African States (ECOWAS) became interested in helping African States to achieve peace, even as he added that African nations share the belief that the they must help each other govern their countries.

He dedicated the award to all Nigerians, saying he would not relent in doing that which would enhance peace and guarantee political stability in Nigeria, as economic growth, development and stability are tied to political stability.

He further said, “We will continue to do our best. For me as an individual, I will continue to play my role in spite of the challenges. Let me use this unique opportunity to call on all Nigerians and all the people of the world to embrace peace. You cannot talk about development when you are fighting.”

The regional director of URI, Ambassador Mussie Hailu, who presented the award to President Jonathan explained that it was in recognition of his immense contributions to religious harmony in Nigeria, as well as peacekeeping operations under the United Nations.

Noting that the award was a non- monetary honour for people who had distinguished themselves and exhibited exceptional leadership qualities, he added that previous recipients of the award included former president of Mozambique, Joaquin Chissano,  Girma Woldegiorgis of Ethiopia, Paul Kagame of Rwanda and Blaise Compaore of  Burkina Faso amongst others.

“We have been following with great interest the great role the president plays in his country, West Africa and Africa as a whole since he took up office as president of Nigeria. We commend his leadership qualities in the West African sub-region in particular as ECOWAS Chairman and also laud the current transformation agenda of his administration,” he stated.
