Donald Trump Calls for Banning Muslim (63% Immigrants)

Donald Trump Calls for Banning Muslim (63% Immigrants)

Muslims make up just less than 1% of the U.S. adult population. According to Pew Research Center's 2014 Religious Landscape Study (conducted in English and Spanish), 0.9% of U.S. adult population are Muslims.

A 2011 survey of Muslim Americans, which was conducted in English as well as Arabic, Farsi and Urdu, estimated that there were 1.8 million Muslim adults (and 2.75 million Muslims of all ages) in the country. That survey also found that a majority of U.S. Muslims (63%) are immigrants.

A recent Pew Research Center report estimated that the Muslim share of immigrants granted permanent residency status (green cards) increased from about 5% in 1992 to roughly 10% in 2012, representing about 100,000 immigrants in that year.

For Trump, America should be devoid of Immigrants and then Muslims. Read below a copy of Trump statement to ban all Muslims in America


(New York, NY) December 7th, 2015, -- Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on. According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population. Most recently, a poll from the Center for Security Policy released data showing "25% of those polled agreed that violence against Americans here in the United States is justified as a part of the global jihad" and 51% of those polled, "agreed that Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah." Shariah authorizes such atrocities as murder against non-believers who won't convert, beheadings and more unthinkable acts that pose great harm to Americans, especially women.
Mr. Trump stated, "Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again." - Donald J. Trump

Pope Francis in Kenya, Talks About Corruption, Peace, Terrorism

Pope Francis Kenya

Pope Francis' African tour started in Kenyan as he delivered a historic first African Mass on Thursday at the University of Nairobi. Pope Francis arrived in Kenya on Wednesday for his first papal trip to Africa -- one that will take him to Uganda, and the conflict-ravaged Central African Republic. Francis is the fourth pope to visit Africa.
Pope visits Kenya

During Mass, the Pope called on citizens to reach out to the downtrodden.

"I appeal in a special way to the young people of the nation," he said. " ... May you always be concerned for the needs of the poor, and reject everything that leads to prejudice and discrimination, for these things, we know, are not of God."

'God of peace, not violence' -"All too often, young people are being radicalised in the name of religion to sow discord and fear, and to tear at the very fabric of our societies,"

"The God whom we serve is a God of peace. His name must never be used to justify hatred and violence."

"Experience shows that violence, conflict and terrorism feed on fear, mistrust, and the despair born of poverty and frustration," he said.

The visit is a turning point in Kenya’s, and indeed Africa’s, history. Let's not forget that President Obama’s visited Kenyan in July. Kenyans are fed up with the political corruption— five government ministers were fired this week in connection with allegations of graft — and many said they hoped the pope would talk about it in a #MessageToThePope

Sepp Blatter, Michel Platini banned, First African president of FIFA

Sepp Blatter, Michel Platini banned

More chaos in Football as FIFA suspends Presidents Sepp Blatter, Michel Platini and Secretary Jerome Valcke. The current scandal at FIFA is the organization's worst crisis in its 111 years of existence. A statement from FIFA's ethics committee stated that the suspensions come into force immediately and that the individuals were "banned from all football activities on a national and international level". 
“The grounds for these decisions are the investigations that are being carried out by the investigatory chamber of the ethics committee,” FIFA said in a statement.

The suspensions leave FIFA, as well UEFA to find new acting presidents. FIFA's statutes state the most senior vice-president should step in for the president of the organisation and Issa Hayatou, president of Africa's football confederation (CAF), was confirmed as FIFA's acting president becoming the first African president of FIFA.

In 2011, Hayatou was reprimanded by the International Olympics Committee's ethics commission after telling them he was paid by FIFA's former marketing agency International Sport and Leisure in 1995.

Spanish Football Federation president Angel Maria Villar is set to take over from Platini as he is the European governing body's highest-ranking vice-president.

The citation reads, “President Buhari was the first chairman of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and was the mastermind behind the construction of 20 oil depots throughout Nigeria, a project involving over 3200 kilometres of pipelines,” the magazine said. “Both the Warri and Kaduna refineries were built under his leadership. He also established the blueprints for the country’s petro-chemical and liquefied natural gas programmes”.

On environment, it said Buhari is “an active environmentalist who has drafted several plans to preserve wildlife in Nigeria. He has also exerted great efforts on the conservation of nature in Nigeria; such as controlling the logging industry whereby he has ensured that double the number of trees felled are replaced by loggers. He has also worked on restricting the Ecological Fund Office so it can deliver on environmental challenges.”

Nigerians happy with Buhari's Independence Day Spending Cut

These cuts were backed by almost all Nigerians. Perhaps Change has finally. President Buhari Nigeria's Independence Day spending over the past 5 years are:  

Some of the comments as obtained from includes:

Akhidenor Dominic: PMB knows exactly where the shoe pinches him — the state of the national economy demands prudent spending. The amount budgeted is in order!

Urama Jerry: Good decision. I remember in Jonathan’s government, billions of naira were squandered just for celebration while the poor masses where dying of hunger.

Agbasi Uzonna Christian: Some people talk even when they know they are not making sense, but would like to talk. Cutting down the expenses, where then will the money be diverted to if not on useful venture or he will come and tell you he build hospital with the money abi? O boy! Blame your papa for not going to school and not to sit and condemn all done by the leaders.

Celestine Nnamani: It [the number] looks quite big, but, considering what it takes to organize a ceremony and care for dignitaries from across the world, l think it’s fair enough.

Eyituoyo Shugaboy: Look at the way most of you a commenting, saying what’s the use of the money, what are we celebrating? Come October 1st, you guys will be the ones killing all sorts of meat and food. My dear, don’t be hypocrites. The present govt is really trying. Most of us don’t know anything about politics but yet we will criticize every effort made my an office-holder. You guys should a least watch news sometimes, it’s not all about Africa Magic. Just saying.

Ejimogu Innocent: Some of us talk too childish here! Do you know how important it is for a country to mark their independence! Other countries do the same. What is the logic behind the reduction?

Abdwahab Ayinla: #70 million for just a day’s celebration?

Itoro Usoro: Mr president, you are a wicked man. People will pay their way to the avenue, but you will not give them water to drink. People wil fuel their car to come to the avenue, but you will not give them money to the fuel back home. Thousands of students will come out, but you will not fuel their cars for them to come back to their destination. Is that wat you call change? Old man, why don’t you bring your children and your grandchildren to come organize the the event?

Marayesa Babajide: We do not have a breakdown of what the money is intended for. So we can not crucify GEJ or give kudos to baba Buhari. Moreover, the populace is eagerly waiting to reap the dividend of change promised by baba Buhari.

Genevive Ogochi Anulugwo: Are they going to use the money to put food on the table of the poor people who can not afford food on that day? Or what? Give me the breakdown on how the money will be spent.

Ifeanyi Uzogara Are we really independent? On what is the money meant for spending? 36 states & FCT to share N70,000.00? Why?

Ifeanyi Biose: Story story, just one of his travels has already made up for the difference, and he does that every week so cutting the expense is hypocrisy. Why does he not say how much he spends on each trip? Only when they want to bamboozle people with false humility would they tell us the amount. But when it’s time to loot you won’t hear the amount. Tell us how much you waste on each international trip?

Minds were put together on how the said amount could have been used differently to benefit the most unprotected groups of Nigerians.

Macmarshal Okoro: 70 million naira can set five water bottling companies with over 50 persons employed. Now tell me what he is using the money for as a prudent and economical president?

Chima Kalu: Let him cut down the salaries and allowances of politicians, lawmakers, governor, ministers, etc. Then I will proudly say he is corruption-free and corruption fighter.

Rabi Abdullahi: Why wouldn’t we celebrate this year’s independence in a differnet way? Pick 70 unemployed gradutes and give them one million each. By Octber next year, we cal them back for testimony to see howthey businesses are going.

Letsmahn Samni Elsacc: Though I’m not a Nigerian, I live here in Nigeria, I have a business here, and I have employed some of your country men and women here. I think that this sum is too much to be spent on an independence celebration. At least if he could reduce that to N55 million, that would have been reasonable. However, credit must be given to President Muhammadu Buhari for cuttin down the cost to N70 million.

Danny El Guidotti: I’m not in support of GEJ spending more than #70m for independence celebration, neither am I in support of PMB’s #70 m budget for the celebration. If I may ask, what are we celebrating? Is it the fall in the Naira’s value? or the bombing activities of the Boko Haram? or the number of unemployed graduates out there? or the unpaid civil servants? I don’t know what we are celebrating with a whole #70 m. My town has never had light for the past seven years… Oh! We’re going to celebrate power instability in the country, right? PMB, there are too many troubles in the country for crying out loud. People are dying from starvation, man-made disasters, and we’re celebrating. I thought by now, we would have been hearing better news than these budgets and asset declaration stuffs. Please use this money to do something better.

Efe Ayo: What are we celebrating? Darkness, corruption, Boko Haram, kidnappings, bad roads, strikes as a result of non-payment of salaries,etc. After many years of independence, are we moving forward or backward? I think back when we were under colonial masters was better than gaining independence.

Ogechukwu Magnus Onyedimara: Celebrating bad roads, high cost of healthcare, unemployment, poverty on the masses, bad economy since last year till end of this year, lack of money to pay d few workers, insecurity, etc? Can’t they use that 70m to build one industry and employer workers? If they want to drink shampaign they have money to do so from all they bribe collected or appreciation money they get from companies!

Malachy Richard Celebrating with such amount of money under this insecurity? Hmmmmmmm… So Nigerians are still happy spending and celebrating while most families are there suffering in the hands of Boko Haram… So because your family is not affected, you are happy celebrating?

Jhoie Ekeledo: What has the government improved on so far that is worth celebrating? It is so foolhardy to think that the average Nigerians today, docked by unemployment, starvation, homelessness and lack of other basic amenities, would gladly cheer up in celebration. N70m would have made a lot of sense if we had something really worth it.

Joe Nneke: First of all, what are celebrating? Failure. They should bury their head in shame, using 70m to celebrate failure is most shameful. That money can build a factory that can employ some of our youth. Bring it down to 10m. The celebration means nothing to our failed state.

Regina Vormann: My state lacks good roads, they are federal roads. My street has turned into swamp in Calabar City, yet, we celebrate carnival yearly, now this sum for Independence! What a waste. What are we celebrating? Good economy, jobs, good roads, steady electricity supply, good drinking water? None of these. Oh the rich will ever remain rich while the poor sleep hungry.

Blaize Moreways: It is much because the boys are not smilling. No work, no roads, no water, no food, no shelter, no peace, no development, no education. People are begging on the streets finding it so difficult to eat one square meal per day. In fact, we should stop celebrating it in a mega way because we as a country are not mega: people are poor, have no money. Give the money to them people… Give us good governance, not ceremonial system as it used to be.

Innocent Akinde: What do they need it for? I’ve worked for 28 years serving the fed govt, and genuinely can’t boast of #100,000 in my savings. How does that affect our poverty or any average Nigerian?

Jibrin H. Rano: Means he has allocated N0.40 to each Nigerian to enjoy the 55th Nigeria’s Independence Day.

Full Text Nigeria Independence Day October 1, 2015 by President Buhari

The President Delivers Change Remarks at 55 Nigeria's Independence Day Celebration in Abuja. Read President Muhammadu Buhari full text October 1, 2015 below:

“No temporary problems or passing challenges should stop us from honouring this day. Let us remind ourselves of the gifts God has given us. Our Creator has bequeathed to us Numbers – Nigeria is the ninth most populated country on the planet. We have in addition arable land; water; forests; oil and gas; coastline; and solid minerals

“We have all the attributes of a great nation. We are not there yet because the one commodity we have been unable to exploit to the fullest is unity of purpose. This would have enabled us to achieve not only more orderly political evolution and integration but also continuity and economic progress.
“Countries far less endowed have made greater economic progress by greater coherence and unity of purpose.

“Nonetheless, that we have remained together is an achievement we should all appreciate and try to consolidate. We have witnessed this year a change in our democratic development.
“The fact that an opposition party replaced an entrenched government in a free and fair election is indicative of the deeper roots of our democratic system. Whatever one’s views are, Nigerians must thank former President Jonathan for not digging-in in the face of defeat and thereby saving the country untold consequences.

“As I said in my inaugural speech, I bear no ill will against anyone on past events. Nobody should fear anything from me. We are not after anyone. People should only fear the consequences of their actions. I hereby invite everyone, whatever his or her political view to join me in working for the nation.

“My countrymen and women, every new government inherits problems. Ours was no different. But what Nigerians want are solutions, quick solutions not a recitation of problems inherited.
“Accordingly, after consultations with the Vice President, senior party leaders and other senior stakeholders, I quickly got down to work on the immediate, medium-term and long-term problems which we must solve if we are to maintain the confidence which Nigerians so generously bestowed on us in the March elections and since then.

“As you know, I toured the neighbouring countries, marshalled a coalition of armed forces of the five nations to confront and defeat Boko Haram. I met also the G-7 leaders and other friendly presidents in an effort to build an international coalition against Boko Haram.
“Our gallant armed forces under new leadership have taken the battle to the insurgents, and severely weakened their logistical and infrastructural capabilities. Boko Haram are being scattered and are on the run.
“That they are resorting to shameless attacks on soft targets such as I.D.P. camps is indicative of their cowardice and desperation. I have instructed security and local authorities to tighten vigilance in vulnerable places.

On power, government officials have held a series of long sessions over several weeks about the best way to improve the nation’s power supply in the safest and most cost-effective way.
“In the meantime, improvement in the power supply is moderately encouraging. By the same token, supply of petrol and kerosene to the public has improved throughout the country. All the early signs are that within months the whole country would begin to feel a change for the better.

“Preliminary steps have been taken to sanitize NNPC and improve its operations so that the inefficiency and corruption could be reduced to a minimum.
“Those of our refineries which can be serviced and brought back into partial production would be enabled to resume operations so that the whole sordid business of exporting crude and importing finished products in dubious transactions could be stopped.

“In addition to NNPC, I have ordered a complete audit of our other revenue generating agencies mainly CBN, FIRS, Customs, NCC, for better service delivery to the nation. Prudent house-keeping is needed now more than ever in view of the sharp decline in world market oil prices. It is a challenge we have to face squarely. But what counts is not so much what accrues but how we manage our resources.

“We have seen in the last few years how huge resources were mismanaged, squandered and wasted. The new APC government is embarking on a clean up, introducing prudence and probity in public financing.
“At an early stage, the federal government addressed the issue of salary arrears in many states, a situation capable of degenerating into social unrest. The APC government stepped in to provide short-term support to the debtor states and enabled them to pay off the backlog and restore the livelihood of millions of Nigerians.

“Fellow Nigerians, there have been a lot of anxiety and impatience over the apparent delay in announcement of ministers. There is no cause to be anxious. Our government set out to do things methodically and properly. We received the handing over notes from the outgoing government only four days before taking over. Consequently, the Joda Transition Committee submitted its Report on the reorganization of Federal Government structure after studying the hand over notes. It would have been haphazard to announce ministers when the government had not finalized the number of ministries to optimally carry the burden of governance.

“Anyway, the wait is over. The first set of names for ministerial nominees for confirmation has been sent to the senate. Subsequent lists will be forwarded in due course. Impatience is not a virtue. Order is more vital than speed. Careful and deliberate decisions after consultations get far better results. And better results for our country is what the APC government for CHANGE is all about.
“I would like to end my address this morning on our agenda for CHANGE. Change does not just happen. You and I and all of us must appreciate that we all have our part to play if we want to bring change about. We must change our lawless habits, our attitude to public office and public trust. We must change our unruly behaviour in schools, hospitals, market places, motor parks, on the roads, in homes and offices. To bring about change, we must change ourselves by being law-abiding citizens.
“Happy Independence Celebrations. Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria

Man Orders Domino's, Gets $1,300 In Cash Instead

Man Orders Domino's, Gets $1,300 In Cash Instead

When you order Dominoes Pizza and instead of chicken wings you get cash, that is the story trending this week.

A Domino's in Berkeley, California, made just such a delivery on Friday, and the customer didn't even open the box right away.

Mike Vegas, a bartender at AT&T Park in San Francisco, told NBC Bay Area he thought he was going to have the night off so he ordered some pizza and chicken wings. But when he got called into work, he stuck the box of wings in the fridge unopened.

"I got off work really late, and when I came back home I found the cash in the delivery box -- a refrigerated deposit," Vegas told the station. "I was rubbing my eyes at 5 a.m., laughing at myself."

Domino's driver hid nearly $1,300 in cash in a box marked "chicken wings" but only if you don't accidentally deliver it to a customer. Vegas said the driver had called looking for the missing money, but since he had been at work, he ignored the calls. 

Vegas posted an image on Facebook showing two stacks of bills -- one containing $666, the other $633:

Less Expensive Weddings In Nigeria So Far

Expensive Weddings In Nigeria

It has been studied and validated that if you want a happy marriage? Have a big, cheap wedding. A new study found that couples who spend less on their wedding tend to have longer-lasting marriages than those who splurge. The study, by two economics professors at Emory University, found a similar correlation between less-expensive engagement rings and lower divorce rates.

The study's authors didn't examine why, although they floated a few theories.

"It could be that the type of couples who have a ... (cheap wedding) are the type that are a perfect match for each other," said Professor Hugo M. Mialon, who co-authored the study with Andrew M. Francis.

"Or it could be that having an inexpensive wedding relieves young couples of financial burdens that may strain their marriage," he said.

A Unique Nigerian Wedding different from the typical Most expensive Nigerian weddings.
! Two Nigerians fell in love, decided to get married without the usual bug bucks associated with weddings in Nigeria. The event held at a beach in Lagos on a warm Sunday afternoon and there were only 8 people in attendance. They exchanged their vows and the event was over in minutes and they were ‘husband and wife’… happily married and yet their purses didn’t bleed much in the process

First 100 days of Nigeria Buhari's presidency

Buhari...The First 100: An Illustrated Calendar

As the historic Nigeria presidency reaches its 100-day milestone, osaseye offers a look back at Muhammadu Buhari 's news-packed start, day by day, up until the first 100 days in office.

What have we learned so far from the first 100 days of Nigeria Buhari's Presidency? Here is my top 5, some of which are in tune with Garba Shehu SSA Media and Publicity to the President.
  1. The new government inherited enormous problems created by previous administration but has been able to keep corruption checked. 
  2. Nigeria is safer but still not safe from Boko Haram 
  3. Foreign policy with U.S, U.K, Global leaders and other African President has been strengthened. As described by the president spokesman ''The United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon who came calling this week said that our president is “courageous, focused and firm. Relations with the G 7 group of industrialized countries have since been reset and the dividends of this have begun to flow inwards.
  4. Good governance and economic management. Major boost in finance sector from payment of  expense from the previous administration, quality electricity supply, strengthening the Naira currency and revival of refineries. 
  5. Agriculture continues its up-growth although this was a major transformation agenda from the previous administration.

500 Days Later, Nigeria remembers Bring Back Our Girls horror


Memorials and services for the 500 days since 200 Nigerian Chibok Schoolgirls were taken. It would be 500 days on August 27, 2015, since Nigeria's Chibok School girls were abducted by the Boko Haram insurgent group.

People around the world campaigned with the hashtag #bringbackour girls. A campaign which hits over 2 billion tweets and the biggest social media fails in 2014. Most of the parents of the missing teens still harbor griefs, frustrations and a thin hope that their daughters will be rescued coming to 500 days after they were abducted at Chibok.

Co-ordinators, Dr. Oby Ezekwesili and Hadiza Bala Usman are planning a “Global Week of Action” to commemorate the tragedy of their abduction.

They said “we never envisaged that our girls would still not be rescued nearly 500 days after their abduction. We are extremely saddened as the 500- day mark approaches.

“However, in the last few weeks, we have had cause for a rekindled hope, our confidence boosted, and are more assured that sooner than later our girls shall return.

“This is as a result of some pragmatic steps our government has been taken recently: our president’s December 2015 deadline to have the terrorists decimated; what we see as the compliance by our military to annihilate the terrorists by November, and so on.

“We call on all to hold special prayers at their various places of worship this weekend. We encourage many more, who are empathetic to the cause of our #ChibokGirls in Nigeria, and around the world to join in this “Global Week of Action.”

“This Friday, August 21, 2015 marks the beginning of our “Global Week of Action” (GWA), themed, “500 Days On, Chibok Girls – Crying To Be Rescued, Never To Be Forgotten.”

Crazy Girlfriend Cheating Revenge gone too far?

Cheated wifes revenge gone too far

In the past, we have seen revenge wife or girlfriend smash car windows, dashboards, speedometers, headlights, taillights or tires. Others go flood the rooms or destroy expensive furniture's and belongings. We have also seen cases of acid attack but not this one.

This case is different. Revenge crazy girlfriend gone too far- to set him on fire or kill him while asleep.

In a 30-second clip shared by Elite Daily, the man is seen fast asleep in a white bed wearing just underwear and a pair of high socks.

His girlfriend or wife, whose face cannot be seen, carefully and quietly removes the blanket that is partially covering him.

She then opens a bottle of nail polish remover and slowly pours some of the liquid over the groin area of his underwear.

With a long lighter, she sets the front of his underwear on fire. It only burns for about a second before her boyfriends jolts awake, screaming and batting at the flames.

'You cheating on me with my f***ing co-worker, you didn't think I was gonna find out?' she is heard saying as he rolls over and moans, holding his crotch.

'Get your s*** and get the f*** out,' she says, as he falls off the bed and stumbles off camera.

Not funny and not clever at all. The woman may face prosecution or criminal charges.

Poverty keeps too many children out of school in Nigeria

 children out of school in Nigeria

UNICEF has said that no fewer than 10.5 million Nigerian children are out of school. UNICEF is currently collaborating with some stakeholders to strengthen the newly-introduced Quranic School System to reduce the number of out-of-school children in Nigeria.

Jean Gough, Country Director, United Nations International Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said that the fund had concluded plan to tackle the issue of child malnutrition in the state as it had discovered that 90 per cent of child diseases was as a result of malnutrition.
Gough also announced that UN body would curb public defecation, especially with more than 2,000 communities in the state defecating in open places.

"We intend to ensure that before I leave the country, at least one local government area in Bauchi state is public-defecation free.
"We will also work in collaboration with the state government to boost water and sanitation towards the supply of adequate and portable drinking water.
"I will, therefore, want to appeal to the state government to pay its counterpart fund to enable us execute some of the projects," she said.

Alert: Bloggers death toll rises ''could be much higher'

Bloggers death toll rises ''could be much higher'

Be alert ladies and gentlemen, four bloggers have been killed this year alone in Bangladesh. Reports says a number of author, bloggers or writers are killed one after another. Blogger Neel was slaughtered in his flat in a building at North Gorhan around 1:45 PM, Khilgaon police officer in charge Mustafizur Rahman told BD News.

Two months later, secular blogger Ananta Bijoy Das was killed in Sylhet on busy streets, near the victims’ homes. These bloggers were critical about religious extremism and expressed their views freely in the Muslim-majority country.

Bangladesh has been witnessing several deaths of bloggers.

Blogger Roy was hacked to death in a similar manner near the Dhaka University premises on February 26.

In March, Washiqur Rahman, 27, was hacked to death by two men with knives and meat cleavers just outside his house as he headed to work at a travel agency in the capital, Dhaka.

Haider, an architect by profession, ran a blog that was instrumental in demanding trials for the perpetrators of the mass killings during the Bangladesh Liberation War of 1971, a move that was widely seen as aimed at radical Islamists.

BUhari Exposed Former Ministers Oil Money Laundering Cases

BUhari Exposed Former Ministers Oil Money Laundering

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged to recover "mind-boggling" amounts of Nigeria's stolen oil money and bring those responsible to justice.

The 72-year-old head of state, in Washington for talks with US officials, alleged that 250,000 barrels of crude were being stolen every day by former ministers of the past regime, with the profits going into individual bank accounts.

Buhari, a former military ruler, has carved a reputation as a no-nonsense crusader against graft and has vowed the corrupt and corruption "will have no place" in his government.

He told members of Nigerians In Diaspora Organisation,at the Nigerian Embassy in Washington on Tuesday evening that the United States and other countries "are helping us to trace such accounts now".

"250,000 barrels per day of Nigerian crude are being stolen and people sell and put the money into individual accounts''

"We will ask that such accounts be frozen and prosecute the persons. The amount involved is mind-boggling. Some former ministers were selling about one million barrels per day," he alleged.

"I assure you that we will trace and repatriate such money and use the documents to prosecute them," he said, according to a statement from his spokesman Femi Adesina.

Nigeria Buhari Names Ministers and Cabinet

Buhari Names Ministers and Cabinet

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has said in an opinion piece in The Washington Post that he will not appoint cabinet ministers until September, having taken office on May 29 despite calls that he is taking too long. Is 6 weeks too long? Why are voices so desperate for the release and appointment of Buhari's cabinet?

"Nigeria must first put new rules of conduct and good governance in place," wrote Buhari, in an article for The Washington Post.

"When cabinet ministers are appointed in September, it will be some months after I took the oath of office. It is worth noting that Obama himself did not have his full cabinet in place for several months after first taking office; the United States did not cease to function in the interim''

"In Nigeria's case, it would neither be prudent nor serve the interests of sound government to have made these appointments immediately on my elevation to the presidency; instead, Nigeria must first put new rules of conduct and good governance in place.

"So the path we must take is simple, even if it is not easy: First, instil rules and good governance; second, install officials who are experienced and capable of managing state agencies and ministries; and third, seek to recover funds stolen under previous regimes so that this money can be invested in Nigeria for the benefit of all of our citizens", he noted.

First NBA game in Africa - Aug 1, 2015

First  NBA game in Africa

The first NBA game in Africa will take place on August 1st, 2015 at Ellis Park Arena in Johannesburg, South Africa. The game, which will be aired in Africa on SuperSport, will feature a Team Africa versus Team World format and will be played in support of Boys & Girls Clubs of South Africa, SOS Children’s Villages Association of South Africa and the Nelson Mandela Foundation. The NBA has a long history in Africa with more than 35 players from the continent that have featured on NBA rosters since Hakeem Olajuwon was drafted in 1984.

Organisers  and sponsors include Econet Global Limited, Ford Motor Company of Southern Africa, NIKE Inc., South African Airways, SuperSport,  FM 947  and others.

“This is a historic moment for the NBA and the sport of basketball in Africa, and we are excited to work with such a broad range of partners to make this game possible,” said Amadou Gallo Fall, NBA Vice President and Managing Director-Africa.

“The game will impact young people throughout the continent, both on the court and in the community, as we bring some of the world’s most recognizable athletes to Johannesburg to celebrate our long tradition in Africa.”

Team Africa, comprising of players from Africa and second-generation African players, will feature team captain and two-time NBA All-Star Luol Deng (Miami Heat; born in South Sudan), Serge Ibaka (Oklahoma City Thunder; Congo) and Gorgui Dieng (Minnesota Timberwolves; Senegal).

Team World, comprising players from the rest of the world, will feature team captain and eight-time NBA All-Star Chris Paul (Los Angeles Clippers; U.S.), Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards; U.S.) and Kenneth Faried (Denver Nuggets; U.S.).

U.S. Government Pressure Nigeria To Accept Gay Marriage

U.S. Government Pressure Nigeria To Accept Gay Marriage

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari plans to discuss Islamic terrorist Boko Haram and Nigeria’s economy during his upcoming visit to the U.S. White House. Reports from , U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Linda Thomas-Greenfield said the U.S Government will pressure Nigeria to accept samesex marriage. 

Thomas-Greenfield said “As a government, it is one of the highest priorities and strongest values that discrimination against anyone based on their sexual orientation and gender identity is wrong. We believe human rights should be available to everybody. As a policy, we will continue to press the government of Nigeria as well as other government who have provided legislation against the LGBT community.”

Following the U.S. Supreme Court ruling last month that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, Obama has received mounting criticism in African nations for his support of the LGBT community. Kenyan leaders have warned the U.S. president not to bring his “gay agenda” with him during his visit to Kenya later this month.

Buhari, however, has so far kept quiet about his stance on same-sex marriage as Nigeria struggles with tumbling oil prices and Boko Haram violence. Nigeria needs U.S. military assistance to fight the Islamist militant group, and the U.S might ask for something in return- that Buhari accept Nigeria’s gay legislation in exchange for U.S. funding.

Obama had threatened to sever foreign aid to Nigeria when then-president Goodluck Jonathan signed a law barring same-sex marriage in the African country in January 2014.
