A Country In Recession; Nigerian Sovereign Wealth Authority Board Members Receive N250K Sitting Allowance, Lawmakers Alarmed!

The revelation that board members of Nigeria's Sovereign Wealth Authority (SWA) are paid N250,000 per sitting is not only causing serious uproar at the National Assembly, but has called for serious National concern. And in some cases according the findings, the board members sit four times in some days, totaling N1million sitting allowance per member, per day. The multiple entries of four sittings in just one day were discovered during an investigative hearing by the lawmakers, while vetting the accounts of the authority.
According to Vanguardngr.com, responding to the query, the Managing Director of SWA, Mr Uche Ubosi, said: “It is the standard practice of sovereign wealth authorities world wide to pay sitting allowances to board members.’’ This however angered the lawmakers who declared that he should produce evidence of such payments where board members were paid as much as N1 million per day.

$2.1b Dasukigate; Dasuki Wants To Call Dr. Goodluck Jonathan As A Witness

Sambo Dasuki, who is currently on trial for alleged mismanagement of $2.1 billion arms funds, says he intends to invite former President Goodluck Jonathan as his witness. Jonathan has in the past condemned the charges against Dasuki, claiming that there is no way the ex-NSA could have stolen about $2.2billion funds for arms.
While interacting with his audience not too long ago at the prestigious British Oxford University, Dr. Jonathan said: “We bought warships, we bought aircraft, we bought lots of weapons for the army.” Speaking with The Nation correspondent, Mr. Ahmed Raji (SAN), the ex-NSA’s counsel, said Dasuki wanted Jonathan to testify in court on his behalf.
Raji said: “It will be desirable for Jonathan to testify for the ex-NSA. It will throw greater light into grey areas. And it will serve the interest of Justice. It will be fantastic for him to go to court to testify. Dasuki is an agent of a disclosed and known principal.”
Another member of Dasuki's legal team said: “With w…

FBI Director Just Admitted His New Hillary Probe Is A Smear To Help Trump!

FBI Director James Comey just followed up his first memo to Congress with a “cover your ass” memo to his staff in The Washington Post. The impact within the FBI has been swift after the first memo.Newsweek is reporting that the Republican FBI Director’s inappropriate letter to Congress put him in a very danger of a “mutiny at the FBI,” whose proper role is protecting America from domestic terror threats and investigating serious crimes – not influencing elections.
In the FBI Director’s second letter, he admitted that his agency doesn’t“ordinarily tell Congress about ongoing investigations,”and that he doesn’t know anything about,“the significance of this newly discovered collection of emails.”He also claimed that,“I don’t want to create a misleading impression,”and Comey then made a final admission that,“in the middle of an election season, there is a signficant risk of being misunderstood.”Well, it’s too late now.
Sources inside the FBI told Newsweek they were furious with Director Com…

Full Sharia Implementation In Nigeria Passes Second Reading In National Assembly Without Any Opposition, Where Is Our Christian Legislators? Worrisome! - By Tonte Akpan

''I was shocked to watch the live proceedings of the House of Representatives as covered by NTA2 and saw that the bill calling for the criminal aspects of Islamic Sharia law to be implemented in our legal system in Nigeria at the Federal and states passed the second reading today 27th Oct! I was even more shocked because even though there were many Christians in the House no one raised an objection! The Speaker of the House, Hon Yakubu Dogara, who presided over the proceedings said that what this meant was that it would now move to committee level where it will be discussed fully before the House would decide on it finally, but it is curious that not even one voice of dissent was aired against it! I waited till 9pm to hear what NTA Network news would report about it, but there was a blackout of reportage about it! Of course, other issues discussed and decided in the House today were reported but not this one! The bill to amend the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of N…

How INEC Chairman, Zakari Overturned Legal Advice On Ondo Guber List On Buhari's Instruction To Cause Disaffection In PDP!

According to thetrentonline.com, facts have continued to emerge about how insider sabotage by elements loyal to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, at the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC orchestrated plans to derail the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the forthcoming Ondo governorship elections have begun to emerge.
When all the pieces come together, it paints a dark picture and a grave danger to Nigeria’s democracy. When an institution meant to be a neutral umpire is clearly partisan, it is cause for worry. Insider information from the electoral body, the decision to replace the name of the authentic candidateof the main opposition party in Nigeria, Eyitayo Jegede, with a rival Jimoh Ibrahim, is the handiwork of Amina Zakari, a national commissioner of the INEC and relative of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The action by INEC has sparked violent protests in Ondo Statewith youths taking to the streets to demand that the electoral body rescind its decision to replac…
