Again, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has scheduled a mock Computer-Based Test, CBT, for Unified Tertiary and Matriculation Examination, UTME, candidates on Saturday April 29, 2017, following a failed attempt to conduct a similar exercise earlier in the month.
Lionel Messi had a black eye, a bloody mouth and his Barcelona shirt in his hands. The board had gone up signalling two minutes left in the clásico: not enough for anyone – this was the game that should have gone on for ever – but just enough for another twist, even later and more dramatic than the first.
Full text of the speech by Kano Emir, Muhammadu Sanusi II at the first annual lecture on Chibok Girls.
I am aware that my recent picture with Nnamdi Kanu at Federal High Court, Abuja, has generated a lot of reactions and comments; some witty, others dim-witted, not that I blame them though. I am also aware that the picture has encouraged a vast number of people to take a decisive position on whether or not Biafra is the right cause. Even more, I am aware that the picture has left many people confused and skeptical of reports that I am now supporting Biafra. Na wa.
Are you guys telling me that there is no one in Abuja who has the balls to tell Aso Rock that they cannot be judge and jury in their own court in a case which directly involves them? The $50 million scandal involves the National Intelligence Agency [NIA]; the N9 billion Grass-cutter question over the Presidential Initiative on the North East [PINE] hangs over the head of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation [SGF].
I am honoured to take a moment to talk about the life of my incredible, humble but strong Mother and ask her if I will ever dance with her again?
If you are an ordinary Nigerian looking for where to invest your little savings, just approach any stock broker in the country and ask whether they are authorised to sell the Federal Government Savings Bond (FGNSB). If you get a Yes answer, tell them you’re interested in investing your little cash-as little as five thousand Naira - and you’ve become an investor and a player in the capital market. It is that simple and fast.
The administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari was subject to a very slow start; it took the president about five months to appoint his ministers, took seven months to present first budget, 16 months to shift grounds on the naira and two years to show the Nigerian people an articulate economic plan.
I have just returned from Abuja travelling through the Kaduna airport. As we disembarked from the aircraft and moved towards the arrival section, I could hear an announcement being made. The diction of the announcer was clear. She didn’t sound like those On-Air-Personalities (OAP, they are called) who speak as if they have hot water on their tongues. Airport continuity announcers in Nigeria tend to imitate these OAPs.
