    By Theophilus Ilevbare: Time to stop the tragedy of building collapse It was a tragedy of building collapse one too many on that balmy Friday, September 12, in the premises of the Synagogue Church, Ikotun, Lagos when the foundations of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) Guest House could no longer hold as it came down crashing like a pack of cards. 80 people lost their lives, 131 people survived albeit with varying degree of injuries, and miraculously, a 45-year-old woman walked out of the rubble alive after 4 days…

  • By Temitope Oshikoya: Red Herrings of Okonjo-Iweala’s Sycophant - A rejoinder
    By Temitope Oshikoya: Red Herrings of Okonjo-Iweala’s Sycophant - A rejoinder I feel honored that Mr Paul C. Nwabuikwu, the media adviser to Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala (NOI), Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister for the Economy, considered my article important enough to merit a rejoinder. My article can be located here online. http://ngrguardiannews.com/opinion/columnist/178125-temitope-oshikoya-golden-girl-and-the-icarus-paradox However, in his piece “Temitope Oshikoya: The Lies of a Disappointed Man,” Paul conveniently sidetracked the issues raised in my article, and instead went on vicious and vitriolic attacks that would appear to impugn on my integrity…

    By Mallam Oyakhamoh Carl Abu’Bakar: Towards 2015 Presidential Election: The Choice before APC Political calculations are just not mere number ordering as in counting quantum, but empirical studies aim at addressing the need of a political desideratum. With just a few months to the dawn of political electioneering campaigns in Nigeria and the realisation that the ruling People’s Democratic Party, the PDP, has opted for the incumbent President Ebele Jonathan as its flag-bearer in 2015 presidential polls, two things must agitate the mind of the opposition. These are: the right strategies to successfully…

  • Martins set to get N573m yearly deal
    Martins set to get N573m yearly deal Former Super Eagles and Seattle Sounders’ striker, Obafemi Martins, is set to land a multi-million dollar deal, following the upgrade recently handed to Ogenyi Onazi by Lazio. The latest word on Martins, who is a Designated Player with Seattle Sounders, is that his contract comes just 11 days after the first one. An American sports writer, Frank Dell’Apa tweeted that Martins and the Seattle Sounders FC have reached an agreement and are close to finalising a deal that would be a significant raise. Martins was already under contract through 2015 with an option for 2016. It is not yet clear if this is an extension or an entirely new deal. If the money being reported is accurate, though, it would essentially be a doubling his current salary of N280m ($1.75m) per year, but would only move him up to the 8th highest paid player in the league, from 9th. Martins is having his best scoring season ever, is on his way to double-digit assists and is probably an MVP candidate on a team that has Dempsey. Back in June Martins declared his desire to stay in Seattle when he admitted that other teams were inquiring about his services. If the…

  • FG clears air on auto policy implementation
    FG clears air on auto policy implementation The Federal Government has said that the implementation of the Nigerian Automotive Industry Development Plan is progressing as planned and that there is no intention to reverse certain aspects of the policy. The National Automotive Council said in a statement on Tuesday that the government had not reneged on its promise to shift the implementation process of certain aspects of the NAIDP till January 2015 as alleged in some media report, noting that the application of the levy exemption was only being misinterpreted. The Director-General, NAC, Mr. Aminu Jalal, said, “Government had already shifted the implementation of the full tariff on new vehicles from January 10, 2014 to July 1, 2014 to enable importers to clear the vehicles they had ordered at the old duty rates. Government only extended the concession on the importation of used vehicles only by another six months till December 31, 2014. “This was because up to three out of four imported cars are used and time needs to be given to the assembly plants to produce affordable vehicles to replace the imported used ones. Unfortunately, this levy on new cars was misinterpreted to mean that all vehicles, including new FBU imports, were exempt from levies…
