Following the allegation of financial looting levelled against a former Nigerian Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon (retd), the government of the United Kindom has finally reacted. 

The Nation reports that the United Kingdom distanced itself from the alleged looting, saying that a member of its parliament, Tom Tugendhat, who made the allegation is on his own. 

It was gathered that the action followed a petition to the British parliament by a group, Igbo for a Progressive Nigeria (IPAN), demanding details about the allegation.

The report said that Tugendhat had during the Westminster Hall debate on November 23, accused Gowon of looting half of the Central Bank of Nigeria while he (Gowon) held sway.

Tugendhat had said:

“Some people would remember when General Gowon left Nigeria with half of the Central Bank, so it is said, and moved to London.”

The newspaper also noted that while replying IPAN’s petition in a letter dated December 21 and signed by a member of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, Nigeria unit, one Angela disclosed that Tugendhat made the statement in his own personal capacity, and not for the British Parliament or the United Kingdom.

I Thought EndSARS Protests Was Against A Virus - Anthony Joshua Says

International Boxer Anthony Joshua said he thought the #EndSARs protests which rocked Nigeria in October was a fight against a virus Severe acute respiratory syndrome which also has the SARS acronym. 

In an exclusive interview with Punch correspondent, Joshua said because he had never been a victim of police brutality while in Nigeria, he had never heard of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

Joshua joined global stars in supporting the #EndSARS movement after Nigerians had gone to the streets to protest against the activities of SARS whose officers were accused of extrajudicial killings, unlawful detentions, torture, extortion and various forms of abuses.

The boxer said it was after his uncle called his attention to the protests in Nigeria that he had to read more about SARS and Nigeria’s history.

“I never knew what SARS was during my time in Nigeria; I never encountered SARS, so, when the movement started happening, I thought SARS was maybe like a virus, I didn’t know SARS. One day after training, my uncle called me and this was just before the issue of the Lekki toll gate, about five hours before it, he called me and told me about the situation on the ground. He told me the people of Nigeria loved me and wanted to hear my voice on it,”

“I told him I didn’t know enough about it to talk about it and he said I should just lend my voice and bring awareness. So, I said if it’s what I can do for now, let me just lend my voice and bring my attention to it because I have a big platform. So, I just said it’s important to find a common ground because you can’t overthrow the government in a minute, but we need to find a common solution that will benefit the people.

“So I thought it was important for me to send out a positive message and shortly after that, about four hours later, people had been murdered at the toll gate. So, I said this wasn’t only about finding a common ground, this had to stop. But I didn’t want to go back on my message, I had sent a message out and I had done a lot more research about the #EndSARS movement.

Facebook Removes Apple’s Blue Tick Verification Amid Escalating Feud

Facebook appears to have removed a blue tick verification from Apple’s social media page.

The Mark Zuckerberg-founded company usually gives giant businesses an organizations blue ticks to symbolize their authenticity.

Apple’s main rivals, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard and Samsung, all have been given blue tick verification by Facebook.

It comes amid a feud between Facebook and Twitter over privacy.

At the crux of the issue is changes to Apple’s iOS 14 that will require users to give permission in order for apps to track them for advertising purposes.

The changes will restrict companies, including Facebook, from gathering data on users to provide personalized ads.

Media consultant Matt Navarra noticed the blue tick had vanished from Apple’s page on Facebook Tuesday morning – a week after the Mark Zuckerberg-founded site slammed the iPhone maker over its upcoming privacy changes.

‘Facebook has removed Apple’s blue tick Page verification,’ Navarra wrote.

On Facebook, almost all big brands and organizations are given a blue tick on their official social media pages to symbolize their authenticity.

Apple’s main rivals, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, and Samsung have all been given such ticks by Facebook.

It is unclear exactly when Facebook decided to delete Apple’s blue tick. has reached out to the company for comment.

Apple still has a blue tick verification on Instagram – which is owned by Facebook.

Silicon Valley’s latest war over privacy erupted last week. At the crux of the issue is changes to Apple’s iOS 14.4, which will go live next year and require users to give permission in order for apps to track them for advertising purposes.

Why My Health Centre Project in Ibadan is ‘Too Small’ – Akin Alabi

Akin Alabi has explained that the health centre being rehabilitated in Ajiwogbo, Ibadan is for a small village, Igbere TV reports.

Mr Alabi came under criticism on social media when he shared photos of the heath centre on Wednesday night.

Some social media users said the building was “too small”.

Responding to the criticism, the lawmaker said he only rehabilitated the heath centre, adding that he did not have the power to expand it.

“About those saying the place is too small. Good question. Well, it is a small health center in a small village that was rehabilitated. The place gets like five patients a day. I am not sure there is any sense expanding it. I don’t even have the powers to have it expanded,” he wrote on Thursday.

He added: “Some are asking why was the contract given to an Abuja contractor. The answer is I had no say. That question has to go to National Health Care Development Agency. I do not award contracts. Lawmakers do not award contracts. I have never met this contractor. I don’t plan to.”

Appeasing his critics, Alabi said he was not boasting about the project.

“In the original post, it wasn’t like I boasted that this was massive or an ‘ultra modern’ or a world class facility. I helped connect the village and the agency, worked hard to make sure it happened. The entire details are in the pictures. No bragging. I don’t understand the vex,” wrote the legislator.

‘Nigerian Graduates Are More Dangerous Than Illiterates’ – Afe Babalola says

Founder of Afe Babalola University in Ado-Ekiti, (ABUAD), Aare Afe Babalola (SAN), says Nigeria’s standard of education has fallen so drastically that graduates from Nigerian Universities have become more dangerous than uneducated people in the society, IgbereTV reports.

Babalola stated this when he spoke at a reception held in Igbajo, Boluwaduro Local Government Area of Osun State for Prof. Damilola Olawuyi, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academic, Research and Strategic Partnerships of the institution who recently became a Senior Advovate of Nigeria (SAN).

“The common saying is that ignorance is a disease. I do agree. Indeed, poor education is worse than illiteracy. Poor education is even more dangerous than ignorance. But what do we have today?

Due to poor education, Nigeria is today producing graduates whose education makes them more dangerous than uneducated people. Today, Nigeria produces graduates who cannot write simple and correct sentences; graduates who do not understand the difference between transitive and intransitive verbs.

We have graduates who do not know the place and import of prepositions in grammar; graduates who do not know the use of adjectives and adverbs; graduates who do not know the place of agreement of nouns and number; graduates who do not know the import of adjectival and adverbial clauses.

There are graduates who do not know the difference between Tropics of Cancer and Tropics of Capricorn. There are those who do not know Magellan line, that is, the line that divides the earth into two.

There are many graduates who do not know the distance between the earth and where the rain starts to fall. There are also those who do not know why we have day and night or the difference between Neap or High Tide or the fact that what is called heaven consists of billions of stars and different planets.

“Whereas our towns will only be better if we have quality education, our nation will be better if we have quality education, and the world will be better if we all have quality education,” he said.

The minister also noted that peace and security are critical factors needed to enable the government to accomplish its mission of revitalizing the economy, improving foreign direct investment as well as generating employment opportunities for over 100 million Nigerian youths in the next 10 years.

Aregbesola advised Nigerians and Christians in particular, to adhere strictly to the COVID-19 protocols and guidelines as stipulated by relevant authorities, during and after the yuletide, especially with the second wave of the outbreak of the disease.

The minister who reiterated FG’s commitment to the fight against banditry, kidnappings and other crimes and criminalities in the country, called on Nigerians to support the efforts of the security agencies by providing them with information that will enhance intelligence gathering.

While admonishing all Nigerians to remain focused, determined, patient and patriotic, Aregbesola expressed confidence that the year 2021 would be a better year for all Nigerians, urging Christians to use the period to pray for Nigeria.

Anthony Joshua Says He Wants to Take Tyson Fury’s ‘Head Off His Shoulders’

 With a super-fight between the Brits now closer than ever to materialising, Joshua, 31, said: ‘All I wanted was his Rolex watch. He said before that spar (to Boxing News), “If you can beat me up or knock me out, you can have my Rolex watch”. 

‘I was hungry then and I am even hungrier now. It was a good spar. I didn’t really know too much, it was just passion. Now I have some boxing IQ and passion, I know it will be a great fight.

‘There was a Rolex but now there is an even bigger pot of gold at the end of this rainbow and I want to take his head off his shoulders when that fight happens.’

Joshua, the IBF, WBA and WBO champion, added: ‘After the Pulev fight I didn’t want to do any interviews – less talk and more action. I stood by that. But now that we’re talking about it, a week or so after, and I’m ready, I’m keen. If that fight happens I’m sure that I’ll win. How close are we? I promise you conversations are happening. We’re definitely looking at the landscape. But until you hear it from me, don’t buy into anything.

‘I’m taking my time – because there has been a lot of back-and-forth for years. I’ve been chasing this road to undisputed and when the time is right I’ll announce it and I’ll have my mind fully focused on the job at hand. 

‘The offers will be made, substantial offers. I’m looking more optimistically as if it will happen to be honest with you. He should take this fight with both hands.

‘I promise you this: I will put in a serious offer to fight Tyson Fury and if he’s serious himself, he will take it. If he’s not I will fight (Oleksandr) Usyk and leave it there.’

Heavyweight boxer, Usyk is among the problems around the fight for the undisputed title, given the Ukrainian is the mandatory challenger for Joshua’s WBO belt.

With the WBO currently holding Joshua to his obligation to fight Usyk next, Joshua could have to vacate the belt in order to complete negotiations with Fury.

Asked about giving up one of his titles, Joshua said: ‘The belts do make it special but I feel like the cries from the public are just for me to fight Tyson Fury.

‘I am the sort of guy who will let my team just put a social media poll and whatever the fans vote, I will do. If they want to see me fight Fury, and I have to relinquish… There is nothing more in it than me wanting to compete against the best.

‘If that is Tyson Fury, then fine. If they want me to fight Usyk, and get him out of the way, then fine. I believe I will beat Usyk and then Tyson Fury can happen at the end of the year. Either way, I am just doing my next couple of fights next year on what the public wants me to do.’

In terms of his future, Joshua indicated he has a point in mind for when he will retire.

He said: ‘I have a time frame, I want to go to around 38.

‘I am not just looking at Tyson Fury, but how long I can give to the sport. What more do I have to give? I am young and fit, I don’t do anything else so boxing is fun for me and keeps me busy.

Tyson Fury is a good challenger, someone to help me progress, he will be a great learning fight. And, once that is done, I will go on competing with the best, challenging myself and making history.’

Ondo PDP Suspends Former Chairman and Four Others After Visit to Fayose

Five members of Ondo state chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) have been suspended for alleged anti-party activities.

Members of the party who were suspended are former state chairman of the party in Ondo State, Ebenezer Alabi; former lawmaker, Rasheed Elegbeleye; former Publicity Secretary, Ayo Fadaka; Oyedele Ibini, and Lad Ojomo.

The suspended persons are said to be part of a delegation that paid a visit to former Ekiti Governor, Ayo Fayose, to solicit support for a chieftain of the party, Eddy Olafeso, who aspires to become the Zonal Vice Chairman of the party in the South-west.

The party’s spokesman, Kennedy Peretei who stressed that their suspension was in line with Section 58 (1)(a)(b)(f) and (h) of the Party Constitution (2017 as Amended), also denounced the visit to Mr Fayose amid the division in the party along the support lines of Mr Fayose and the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde.

The statement read;

“By this decision, they are expected to stop parading themselves as members of the party. All organs of the party are to take note in this regard.
They stand suspended until the outcome of the report of the State Disciplinary Committee.”

The State Working Committee also dissolved the State Elders Committee. The statement added;

“In accordance with the provisions of our constitution (2017 as Amended), another State Elders Committee will be constituted in due course.
We also want to put it on record that, the State Executive Committee of the PDP in Ondo State did not send any delegation to anywhere to represent the Party.
Whoever lays claim to such is an impostor and does not represent the opinions of our teaming supporters in the State.”
However reacting to the suspension, Fadaka allaged that it ”was part of the dirty politics to keep him away from clinching the position during the congress”.

He told Premium Times;

“Fayose is supporting us but governor Makinde is not, so they decided to suspend me indefinitely so that I cannot be elected.
I did not do anything. I am not a person who will be involved in anti-party activities, it is just to keep me from being elected.
No reason other than a blanket tag of anti-party activities have been established by them as the basis for this step.”

“May Allah Protect us From Jealousy and The Evil Eye” – Woman Overjoyed at Husband Marrying Second Wife

A Muslim woman has expressed her happiness and excitement after her husband married a second wife.

Safa, who is based in New Jersey, took to Twitter on Saturday, December 19, to share the good news, praying for Allah’s protection for her family.

She wrote;

“I have a co-wife y’all!!!!! I’m more excited than my husband May Allah grant us tawfiq and protect us from jealousy and the evil eye. Ameeen”.

The tweet also elicited some criticisms. A Nigerian Twitter user Vivian Akinosoye said that the life of the woman’s children can never be the same after the second marriage.

Safa responded, saying “Our children are just fine. This is the way their Lord decreed for it to happen. May Allah guide you. Ameen".

To the man who said that polygamy is a criminal offence in America, Safa told him to respectfully go to hell.

“By wanting for your sister what you would want for yourself. By taking pride in sisterhood and unity. By placing my Trust in Allah (Subhanahu wa ta a’la.” she added.
