Nigeria’s Ambassador To South Africa Resigns, Dumps APC

A member of the All Progressives Congress and Nigeria’s ambassador to South Africa has dumped the party after resigning. 
Nigeria’s Ambassador to South Africa, Ahmed Ibeto, has resigned.
He has also dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress and crossed over to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.
Ibeto was reported to have arrived Nigeria from Pretoria on Sunday and on Monday morning, he handed over his letter of resignation at the Ministry of External Affairs.
Our correspondent could not confirm if the envoy saw President Muhammadu Buhari before returning to Minna on Monday evening.
Ibeto was a deputy governor of Niger State on the platform of PDP.
Checks revealed on Tuesday that Ibeto have left Minna for his home town of Ibeto in Magama Local Government Area of the state.
According to sources, the former deputy governor was received by over 1,000 supporters on his way to Ibeto.

A source close to the former deputy governor told our correspondent that he would join governorship race immediately he registered with PDP.
It could be recalled that former Ambassador was a member of the PDP until the primary election of the party in November 2014, during which he lost the governorship ticket to Umar Nasko, a former Chief of Staff to ex-governor Babangida Aliyu.
He resigned his membership of the PDP along with thousands of his supporters after complaining about “the injustice” melted to him by the then ruling party.

‘We Are SHOCKED By President Buhari’s Silence On Illegal Attempt To Impeach Governor Ortom’ – R-APC Blows Hot

The Reformed-All Progressives Congress (R-APC) says it is shocking that President Muhammadu Buhari has not deemed it fit to condemn the “illegal” attempt to impeach Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue state.
Eight lawmakers of the state house of assembly commenced impeachment proceeding against the governor on Monday, while some 22 others were reportedly blocked from attending plenary by the police.
Reacting to this Kazeem Afegbua, spokesman of the R-APC, said Buhari’s silence suggests he is the “chief promoter of undemocratic illegalities that have consistently undermined our democratic engagements in the last three years”.
He alleged that there is an attempt to force down the “bitter pills” of Buhari’s second term agenda down the throat of Nigerians.
“On the one hand, the APC party leadership declared that they aren’t losing sleep over our members activities ostensibly to present a fake personae but it has consistently mounted pressure on our members to capitulate under the influence of mouth-watering promises,” he said.
“Now that our member Governor Ortom has given the APC red card, and deservedly so, heaven has been let loose and President Buhari has maintained a conspiratorial silence and deliberately feigning ignorance over the democratic gangsterism that has dominated Benue assembly at present.”
The group said the Monday incident and similar ones in Benue show Nigeria’s democracy is “seriously under threat” by those trying to “armtwist the Benue people against their will.”
According to the statement, “this desperation is getting too much and it must be arrested forthwith without equivocation before this democracy is reduced to a mindless rubble.”
“We cannot afford to feign ignorance over this heinous crime against humanity under an atmosphere of threat, tension and harassment that has assumed the second nature of this government,” the group added.
“It is becoming petty that this government has descended to a level of irredeemable dictatorship and outright desperation in the name of forcing the bitter pills of second term down the throat of Nigerians.
“We cannot continue to pretend that all is well when our country is gradually descending to the abyss of maximum rulership orchestrated by the president’s foot soldiers.
“We are therefore raising alarm that this democracy must be saved from the indecent grip of APC agents of suppression and oppression under the clear supervision of the president.”

CONFESSION!! Brazil Star Neymar Finally Admits To Diving

Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil superstar, Neymar Jr., has admitted to diving during the 2018 World Cup.
He has, however, vowed to change his ways.
Neymar and his team-mates were dumped out at the quarter-final stage by Belgium, after largely underperforming during the tournament.
The 26-year-old came under fierce criticism for his theatrics and exaggerated reactions to fouls.
He has now used a sponsor’s advertisement with manufacturer Gillette, to accept criticism and vow to bounce back.
The ad started with Neymar saying: “Boot-stud on the shins. Kick in the spine. Stomp on the foot.
“You may think I overreact, and sometimes I do. But the truth is I suffer on the pitch. You have no idea what I go through outside of it.
“When I leave without talking to the press, it’s not because I only like winning, it is because I still haven’t learned to disappoint you.
“When I look impolite, it is not because I am a spoiled kid. It is because I have not learned how to deal with my frustrations.
“There’s still a boy inside of me. Sometimes it dazzles the world. Other times, it pisses everyone off. And my fight is to keep this boy alive. But inside of me, not inside the field.
“You may think I’ve fallen too much, but the reality is I did not fall. I crumbled. And that hurts more than anyone stepping on your operated ankle.
“I took time to accept your criticism. I took time to look at myself in the mirror and become a new man. But now I’m here, with my heart wide open.
“I fell but only those who fall can get up. You can keep throwing rocks at me or you can throw your rocks away and help me get up because when I do get up, the whole country gets up with me.”

The future of Robert Lewandowski is once again on the front of the stage. According to several media, the Polish international striker has reiterated his wish to leave Bayern to join Real Madrid.
The galactic desired by Florentino Perez is perhaps named Robert Lewandowski. The striker of Bayern Munich has never hidden his attraction for Real Madrid and it is not today that it will change.
The departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus Turin leaves a huge void to fill and he would enjoy it. According to Sky and Marca (who is making a Sunday on the subject), Lewandowski warned Bayern management of his desires elsewhere. Or more exactly of his desires of Real …
A reaffirmed will that will not surprise the Bavarian leaders. The fact remains that Madrilenians must now take action if they really want to move forward on this issue. Bayern having repeated several times that it was not a seller, it will not be easy. The two entities nevertheless have good relations and the two parts will therefore be quickly fixed.
“Lewandowski’s dream is to play Real, but from there to make it happen …”, argues a relative of the player, quoted by Marca. Under contract until 2021, the Polish changed agent this year (Zahavi) so that his situation evolves in the direction he wants. But Bayern is still at the heart of its problem

Fire & Fury!! President Buhari Sends 1,000 Strong Military, Fighter Jets To Fight Attackers In Zamfara

The federal government has assembled a 1000-strong military force, comprising the army, air force, police and the civil defence to launch fierce attacks on the bandits terrorising villages and towns of Zamfara State.
Bandits suspected to be cattle rustlers have killed hundreds of people in villages across the state. Several villages have also been razed by the attackers who also kidnap for ransom.
A statement by spokesperson to Mr Buhari, Garba Shehu on Sunday said following directives by President Muhammadu Buhari, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has begun the deployment of fighter aircraft to Katsina, the airport with the closest proximity to Zamfara State, to allow for immediate and effective response to the menace of the bandits.
“This had not been possible in the past because there was no fuel depot facility in Katsina, but NAF has devised a way around the problem,” the statement said.
The president has also authorised the engagement by NAF, of advanced satellite surveillance technology to help in accurate detection of movement and locations of the bandits.
“The government had to go to this extent because of the limitations of conventional surveillance, as the use of satellite technology could make the task of NAF less problematic.
“Following directives from the president, at the weekend, the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Sadiq Abubakar, was in Gusau where he met the Deputy Governor of the State,” Mr Shehu said.
He also said the Chief of Air Staff reiterated the president’s pledge that he would never abandon victims of attacks to their fate, reaffirming that security remains one of the cardinal pillars of his campaign promises and no leader would be happy to see his own citizens killed by criminal groups across the country.
“It will be recalled that since his election, the president has kept faith with his promises to re-equip and motivate the country’s military and other security services.
“The army and other security services are now better equipped and motivated to face the challenges of their responsibilities.
“The presidency, therefore, appeals to all Nigerians to unite and speak with one voice on security issues and urges politicians to stop exploiting national security challenges.
“Those praying for the president to fail in this effort can be likened to one stabbing oneself in the heart and celebrating about it,” Mr Shehu said.
He also said security should not be reduced to petty politics as doing so could only embolden the terrorists and other murderous gangs.
“We therefore appeal to members of the Nigerian media to avoid unhelpful and deleterious sensationalism in the coverage of events that border on national security.
“The media should under no circumstances make the bandits or terrorists feel like super stars because doing so could hurt all of us.
“Terrorists seek to achieve maximum publicity and they do so by launching large scale attacks on soft targets and the media must resist every attempt to play into their hands unwittingly,” the spokesperson said.
At the peak of the Zamfara attacks, the state governor. Abdulaziz Yari, said he was resigning as chief security officer of the state as he was helpless about the insecurity in the state.
Although the constitution recognises state governors as chief security officers, Nigeria’s unitary security structure means all the major security agencies are controlled by the president.
Mr Yari’s stance was, however, criticised by many including senators from the state who accused him of failing in his constitutional duty.

‘Alex Iwobi Close To Signing New Deal’- Arsenal Boss Unai Emery Confirms

Alex Iwobi is close to signing a new deal with Arsenal, head coach Unai Emery has confirmed.
Iwobi, whose contract runs to 2020, made 26 appearances in the Premier League last season and scored three times for the Gunners.
And the Nigeria international will soon renew his contract to commit his future to Arsenal, Emery told reporters ahead of an International Champions Cup meeting with former club Paris Saint-Germain.
Iwobi, who has been linked with a number of European clubs this summer, including Lazio, played no part in the 3-1 penalty shoot-out defeat to Atletico Madrid, having only just returned from a break following his exertions for Nigeria at the World Cup.
“I have the information – he’s near,” Emery said. “First, I want to work with every player, and they are coming.
“Mesut [Ozil], Iwobi, [Mohamed] Elneny are starting to work with us, the first week is very good. My information is he is going to sign and continue with us.”

“We Are Not Coming Back To APC” – House Of Rep. Members

Members of the House of Representatives, who defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from All Progressive Party (APC) on Tuesday, have laughed off the dream of the APC that they will make a U-turn and return into its fold.
The members noted that the decision to dump the ruling party didn’t come easy but it came anyway, after they had weighed all other options and concluded that defection was the best.
Their reactions came on the heels of fresh reconciliation moves by the APC and alleged offer of return tickets to the members to contest the 2019 polls.
Thirty-seven lawmakers had on Tuesday defected from the APC. Thirty-two of the lawmakers defected to the PDP, while four members moved to the African Democratic Congress.
One member has yet to name his new party.
The Coordinator of the 32 defectors, Mr. Razak Atunwa, reacted angrily to the thought of returning to the APC.
Atunwa, who is the chairman, House Committee on Justice, said the APC had “limited understanding” of governance, a reason the party reduced the defection to just return ticket.
He said:-
“Ticket or no ticket, this is a decision that we have taken and we know this is the best.
“We are talking about fundamental national issues, lack of good governance and generally, a government that has failed to deliver on its promises to the Nigerian people.
“When you reduce it to ticket, you make this whole fight look unserious or merely which party has majority or not majority. We are talking about a government that has failed.”

Transfer News! Real Madrid Finally Take Final Decision On Chelsea Star Hazard

Real Madrid have taken their final decision on Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.
New manager, Julen Lopetegui now plans to shape his side around Spanish forward, Isco.
The La Liga giants have been heavily linked with a £170million move for the Belgian international, as the player told reporters after the World Cup that he was ready to make the move to the Bernabeu.
Chelsea have long been aware of Hazard’s desire to eventually move to the Spanish capital but the Blues also believe they are in a strong position to keep the player.
The 27-year-old has two years to run on his deal at Stamford Bridge.
AS reports that the Blues’ position has convinced Real Madrid that a deal for Hazard would prove too expensive, and new boss, Lopetegui is now ready to put his faith on Isco instead.
That leaves Hazard in a precarious position as Chelsea are determined to extend his deal to make him the highest paid player in their history and also hand him the captain band.
Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri is desperate to keep Hazard.

L.A.X – I Will Be Bigger Than Davido And Wizkid In One Year

Nigerian singer L.A.X, in a exclusive interview with Star Tracker, speaks on his successes, recent projects, plans, hopes and more.
Read the excerpts below:-

What New Projects Are You Working On At The Moment?

Right now I’m working on my album. Last year I was working on it but I lost my hard drive on which I had close to 90 songs on. This happened early last year after I dropped ‘Run away’.
I felt like there was a reason I lost those songs, so I focused on creating a new sound for myself. So when you hear my music now you will notice that the sound is different from what I had on ‘Caro’ or ‘Ginger’.
It’s now a different vibe all together. I just felt like that is the direction God wants me to go. Right now my album is on the way and it will be ready before the end of the year.

Where Do You See Yourself In The Next One Year?

I will be as big as Wizkid and Davido, even bigger than them. There’s nobody that can’t be. I let my music speak for me, I have sat with people that won’t lie to me, people that are bigger than me and when they listen to my songs it’s the same feedback.
