Jonathan Sneaks Budget? N30millions for Phantom Aircraft, Boats in Foreign Embassies

Jonathan Sneaks Budget? N30millions for Phantom Aircraft, Boats in Foreign Embassies
The 2014 budget presented to the National Assembly by President Goodluck Jonathan last week contains fraudulent request for funds.
In what clearly appears a ploy by officials to brazenly steal public funds, the Federal Government is asking the National Assembly to approve about N30million which it purportedly plans to spend on fueling aircraft and boats owned by Nigerian embassies abroad.
The fraudulent request is coming when government officials know that none of Nigeria’s foreign mission owns a plane or boat.
Details of the 2014 Federal Budget presented last week by the Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, to the National Assembly on behalf of President Goodluck Jonathan, revealed that the foreign affairs ministry is asking for about N30million to cater for these phantom expenditures.
Officials claim Nigeria’s foreign missions in Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Ethiopia, Algeria, and Mali would need an average of N1.785million each to fuel aircraft, and another N2.381million each to fuel boats during the year.
Similar provisions, concealed under the general fuel and lubricants subheads, were made for the embassies in Turkey, Lebanon, and United Arab Emirate, UAE.
The budget for the mission in Mali also has ludicrous demands for aircraft maintenance cost (N638,365); boat maintenance cost (N635,435), and railway equipment maintenance cost (N999,8240).
When released, these funds will simply go into the pockets of corrupt officials since the embassy does not own aircraft or boat and has no railway line to maintain.
The spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ogbole Odeh, said in a telephone interview in Abuja on Tuesday that the provision for aircraft fuel cost in the budget for the foreign missions was strange, as the federal government does not maintain aircraft in any of its embassies abroad.
“Aircraft fuelling cost? This sounds strange to me. I have never heard of such,” Mr. Odeh said, in response to an enquiry. “What is normal is motor vehicle or generator fuelling costs. To the best of my knowledge, none of the Nigerian Missions abroad maintains an aircraft. Or what purpose is the railway equipment maintenance supposed to serve? I don’t know. It sounds ridiculous.”
This is not the first time when fraudulent fund requests smuggled into budgets by corrupt officials have been uncovered.

GRAPHIC PHOTO: Gay Man Burned Alive In Uganda Days After Anti-gay Bill Was Passed Into Law!

Uganda recently signed a bill that further bans homosexuality. According to CNN, a man was burned to death for being gay shortly after.
The bill's original 2009 version, named "Kill The Gays," went as far as calling for the death penalty for certain homosexual acts; that provision was shelved following international furore.
Under its latest iteration, anyone who conducts marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples faces seven years behind bars. Failure to report homosexual activity to police is also criminalized. Doctors who treat gays, landlords who rent them property and those suspected of being gay are subject to five-year prison terms under the bill.
Anyone who offers support to homosexuals will also be committing a criminal offence, which can reportedly extend to counselling.
Though homosexuality has already been illegal in the South-east African nation, some argued this bill needed to be passed to safeguard against Western values.

Christmas Tragedy Occurs In Lagos And Cross River States

It was a bloody Christmas celebration in Lagos and Cross River states as no fewer than nine persons were killed in auto accidents on Tuesday night and on Wednesday morning.







Five people comprising a baby, her mother, two brothers and a driver died on Wednesday in the Lagos State accident, while four youths died in the Cross River accident.
In Lagos, our correspondent learnt that apart from the five people that perished on Christmas day, another lady suffered a fracture after a container which was on an articulated truck fell on a commercial bus on Alaba Suru Road in the Ajeromi-Ifelodun area of Lagos.
Eyewitnesses said the baby, her mother, the two brothers and the bus driver, who were victims of the accident, were returning from the Lagos Island.
It was said the two brothers went to purchase bangers for the New Year celebration
The crash was said to have been caused by a mentally unstable woman, who laid in the middle of the road, thereby creating confusion for the truck driver who was on top speed.
Eyewitnesses told PUNCH Metro that the yellow LT bus, with number plate, MUS-975-XC, had also stopped by the side of the road to drop off a passenger, which precipitated the accident.
A resident, Mohammed Wasiu, said, “The incident happened around 8.30am. I saw the mad woman walking around this morning. She just decided to sleep on the road at that time.
“The LT bus was going towards Mile 2. There were about eight people in the bus. The driver decided to stop because someone wanted to get down from the bus.
“As this was going on, the truck was coming on full speed. There were two trucks; one was already ahead, so the second truck driver wanted to catch up.
“When he got to that point and saw the mad woman on the road, he wanted to avoid crushing her. As he maneuvered the truck, its side hit the bus, and the container fell on the bus.”
Wasiu said residents immediately rushed to the scene and began to cut the vehicle with saws in order to save the occupants who were in pain.
Another eyewitness, who did not identify himself, said, “The two brothers who were at the back of the bus were trapped. They had packs of bangers that they just bought. The woman, who wore a shawl, and was carrying a baby, could not also escape. They all died, including the driver.
“It was only a lady that was at the entrance to the door that escaped with a fracture.”
After the accident, angry residents were said to have seized the mentally unstable lady and beaten her up. Some of the residents said it was the second time she would trigger such accident. She was, however, rescued by policemen.
At the rescue operation scene were officials of the National Emergency Management Agency, Federal Road Safety Corps, Lagos State Traffic Management Agency, policemen, and the Lagos State Emergency Medical Services.
The NEMA spokesperson, South-West Zone, Ibrahim Farinloye said, “The incident happened at 8.30am, but we were not alerted till around 11.46am. NEMA was able to mobilise other rescue officials to the scene. At the end of the rescue operation, a woman and her baby with two men died, while a lady was rescued alive. She however had a fractured leg. The corpses have been taken to a mortuary in Oshodi.”
The police Public Relations Officer, Lagos State, Ngozi Braide, said she would call back to give details on the accident.
In Cross River, four youths were on Tuesday killed, while several others were injured after a Mercedes Benz 911 truck rammed into them by the road side at the Akamkpa area of the Calabar-Ikom highway.
The incident, which occurred around the state’s college of education in Awi, Akamkpa Local Government Area, left the community in mourning.
PUNCH Metro gathered on Wednesday that the truck with number plate, Lagos FKJ 505 XC, was immediately burnt by angry mob, while the driver, Chidi Duruba, and the truck conductor, Edwin Oragunye, were thoroughly beaten up.
Two of the injured persons are Blessing Etim and Okechukwu Mbaka. The whereabouts of the six other injured persons could not be immediately ascertained.
An eyewitness, Ekam Emmanuel, said, “About 6am on Tuesday, some youths from Mbarakom community decided to go for a road walk along the Calabar-Ikom highway.
“A Mercedes Benz 911 truck with the number plate, FKJ 505 XC rammed into them from behind and the incident claimed four lives on the spot while several others were injured.
“This incident happened at 6am when I came to clean my shop. I met the youths jogging on the highway but suddenly a truck coming from Calabar on high speed climbed on the four that died on the spot.
“As a result of the tragedy, the Mbarakom youths got angry, the truck driver and his conducter were almost killed when they stopped to see what had happened. They were seriously beaten up, while the truck was set ablaze.”

Emmanuel said another truck, marked Cross River, KAM 45 XA, was also forcefully stopped by the angry mob and set ablaze. He added that the driver escaped being lynched.
She said the anger continued as the youths further burnt another oncoming Audi 80 commercial car, adding that the intervention of the combined team of military and police patrol teams brought the situation under control.
A police officer in the Akamkpa division, Eric Bassey, who is of the traffic department, confirmed the report. He said, “The DPO got an early morning distress call that there was a riot going on in Awi. He immediately gave us orders and on getting to the scene we discovered that three vehicles were burnt and some casualties were there.
“The casualties included some dead bodies, while several others, who sustained injuries, were taken to the hospital for medical attention.
“We were informed that the driver and the conductor of the truck that caused the accident were being held hostage at Mbarakom. We acted swiftly, but discovered that they had been beaten up badly. We rescued them and took them to the General Hospital at Akamkpa where they are still receiving treatment.”
He said peace had been restored in the troubled community.
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Hogan Bassey, confirmed the incident, adding that the police had been able to bring the situation under control.

On Tuesday, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan congratulated Nigerians, especially Christians, who celebrate Christmas.
Acting on President's behalf, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati said the President joined Christians and all other Nigerians in giving thanks to God whose grace and benevolence has helped the nation to overcome the many challenges it has faced since last year.

"Let us all therefore resolve this Christmas to make the ideals of peace, harmony, tolerance, love and goodwill to all even more manifest in our interactions with others.
"It remains my sincere belief that no height of human accomplishment is beyond us as a nation, if we can overcome our differences, such as they are, and forge a binding national consensus to put the progress and well-being of the country above all other considerations," the statement by the President said.
He promised to do everything within his powers to ensure that participants at the planned national conference make significant contributions towards national peace, unity and progress.
The President expressed belief that the conference would contribute to the resolution of contentious issues currently hindering the nation's progress.

FG Spends N360bn on 51,247 Workers' Benefits
The Federal Government said on December 24, 2013, Tuesday, it had spent more than N360 billion on the payment of severance benefits to workers of the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN).
Mr. Benjamin Dikki, the Director-General, Bureau of Public Enterprise (BPE), confirmed it in an interview to newsmen in Abuja.
He stated that the payment was in accordance with the agreement to settle the severance benefits to the affected workers.
According to Mr. Dikki, at the beginning of the privatization process, the budgeted cost for the settlement of labour liabilities in the sector was put at N401 billion.
“The BPE contributed N315.6 billion from the sale of PHCN asset, while the Federal Government provides N45 billion to bring the amount so far remitted to more than N360 billion.
“It would be recalled that the federal government had demonstrated great commitment in resolving labour issues in the power sector reform and privatization.
“From the beginning, it had committed the entire proceeds realised from the sales of the power assets to the payment of the worker’s terminal benefits.
“The N360 billion so far spent was forwarded to the office of the Accountant-General of the Federation to settle 51,247 PHCN Staff, both active and retired,” he said.
The DG of BPE further noted that of the 51,247 workers – 47,913 were active staff, and 3,334 were retired staff of the company.
Mr. Dikki added that 2,158 staff, comprising casual workers and those not properly documented, were yet to be settled.

"Why I converted to Islam' - former actress Vivian Metchie opens up


Recently divorced Nollywood actress Vivian Metchie says she recently adopted the Islamic faith because she found the Christian faith too confusing. Speaking with Yes! magazine on her conversion, Ms Metchie said it was a personal decision she had to take...
"Yeah it is personal. I understand the Koran more than the bible. All of a sudden, the Christian confusion was driving me nuts. My dad was catholic, my mum was Deeper Life, I married someone in the Redeemed Church and then all of a sudden, the few religions had something bad to say about each other. I just couldn't take it anymore. A friend of mine who is close to me said that once you are grounded on the word, it wont be confusing. Unfortunately, maybe I wasn't grounded in the word, but I still could see what I see. But in my quest and study and research, I don't know: I was probably looking for peace. Yeah! That was what I was looking for and I found it in the Koran".
The mother of 4 who has adopted Fareedah as her muslim name says her decision was well received and respected by her dad who has since stopped calling her by her native name and now calls her Fareedah.

Plane that broke down on Abuja runway was carrying bulletproof cars!

The Saudi Arabian plane that broke down on the runway of the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport on the 4th of December leading to the closure of the airport for over 20 hours was carrying 5 set of bulletproof cars weighing 58 tonnes and another set of five bullet proof cars weighing 42 tonnes, according to the Saudi Arabian Embassy. 

In a bid to clear the air, the Embassy released a press release stating the content and who owned them. The statement in part reads 
“The goods were a portion of a supply contract for 10 bullet-proof cars to a government agency in Nigeria, which were to be conveyed from Sharjah (UAE) via Abuja, through Fast Forward Cargo US UAC, to Defence Industries of Nigeria (DICON), 45 Ahmadu Bello Way, Kaduna, through the company’s contact person: Mr Nwajpudu Livinston/CCC. The goods were manufactured in South Africa.”
The aircraft broke down at about 9.19 pm on the runway immediately it landed. Security officials and agencies have kept mum on the issue since the incident happened.

Kemi Olunloyo plans to disrupt Pastor E.O Adeboye's yearly Ibadan crusade:calls him a Gay cultist!!

The very controversial  Kemi Olunloyo has been posting updates on her fan page regarding Senior pastor of Redeemed Church of God Pastor E.A Adeboye
Cultist and Gay Pastor PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE will be in Ibadan Monday. Since he is coming to leave my city with his CURSE, I hope his private plane crashes on take off at Alakia if curses rain that day. Post a comment and try disrespecting my views on my page and you will see the block button fast. Do you think Adeboye is an overstretched modern cultist who sells pure water, bread, schools with N635,000 a term tuition filled with cocaine addicted children and simply turned his congregation into religious bondage? The church is a business and not a place to fool and lie others.


ADEBOYE spelled backwards means EYOBEDA "Take the Knife out where?" Not in my city. Take it out in your church on the Express and stab every congregation member in the back as you've done. Don't let any megapastor stab u in the back. They cannot pay your child's school fees or let u attend their schools easily. N630,000 per term.
RCCG COUNTDOWN: ZERO more days and its over for Pastor Adeboye.

Good Morning Ibadan. To all my REAL loyal fans in this city, THANK U for helping me SUCCEED in stopping Adeboye's Expressway church from infiltrating our city. We don't need all that here. Our people are starving on the streets and many don't have light or water. Adeboye is not planning to move around the city today to give to the poor. Instead, he is planning to cause fanatical gridlock around Adamasingba and a total disaster that will cost our city MONEY we have to pay the NPF to direct traffic and many of you stuck under Mokola bridge on your way to Shoprite for food shopping. 
Take that nonsense elsewhere. I counted down here that it WON'T happen cos GOD said so. Not today, I wrote them that I will organize a huge protest disrupting his preaching. We don't want fanatical Christianity anymore.

Hmmn this woman....

Deeper Life Kumuyi says Christmas is idolatrous, warns members against celebrating

The General Overseer of The Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor W.F Kumuyi warned his church members during their annual National December Convention which held on Saturday Dec 21st, against celebrating Christmas, because according to him it is idolatrous and unscriptural.

Kumuyi said;
“We don’t celebrate Christmas. It actually came from idolatrous background. That is why you don’t hear us sing what they call Christmas carol, Never! We always say it is the December retreat. We are only gathering together because it is the holiday period and love the lord more, and rededicate ourselves more.
“When you find anybody coming in, or any leader, trying to introduce the idolatry of mystery Babylon, that they call Christmas and you want to bring all the Christmas carol saying that is the day that Jesus was born, and you don’t find that in the Acts of the Apostles or in the early church, then you don’t find that in the church either.  If you don’t know that before, now you know.
Well, let's all try to respect other people's beliefs. Meanwhile, other Christian leaders have replied Kumuyi, saying Christmas is not idolatrous but biblical. Continue..



A Catholic priest, Monsignor Gabriel Osu, said
“I don’t know what he means by saying the practice of celebrating Christmas is wrong. Is he saying that Christ wasn’t born? That he didn’t come to die for us? Does he not celebrate his own birthday? Do Kumuyi’s pastors not celebrate him? It is not everything I react to; some people just seek attention. If Kumuyi is a Christian, then he must believe in Christ.

“The celebration of Christmas didn’t just start today; it is too public an event for anyone to say that they don’t know what it is about. “If Kumuyi is condemning the commercialisation of Christmas, I can understand that. Christ came to redeem us from our lost state; this was actualised through his coming, his birth; that is why we celebrate Christmas. It is the fulfilment of God’s promise.”

"Kumuyi is just saying what he feels; he is not making any doctrinal statement.”

"I’m Not In Music To Chase Women" - Jaywon

What are the pains and gains of being an artiste?

There are lots of them and because nobody forced me into doing music,
 I have to cope with the bad ones, like being misunderstood by 
the press, who in turn push those wrong messages to your fans. 
Sometimes, you don’t even realise how big your act is until one wrong
 incident happens and you experience the outpour of reactions. Also,
 you don’t seem to have a private life apart from constant criticisms. 
I am yet to see someone who goes to the toilet and bathroom with 
his phones. So, when someone accuses me of not taking my calls, 
I laugh and ask if he takes his phones to those places because it’s 
possible that I may have been taking my bath when he called. 
The gains are many. People pray for you and some even pay you to 
come and party with them. It’s not that I was invited to perform; it’s just 
to come and identify with the host. That’s the kind of love people have for me.

I expected you to list your female fans as part of the gains of your profession…


It depends on the artiste and I think that goes for the very young artistes. 
have been around for a while and there are some things, which, if I do now,
 I will look stupid. I am not in this industry for girls; I am here for a lot more 
serious reasons. I have a female fan base and our relationship is platonic.

PHOTOS: Brave Mother Of 2 Marries Dying Boyfriend In Hospital Bed Ceremony

Cola Glenny, 22, said 'I do' to Felix Glenny, 23, as he lay in Medway Maritime Hospital Kent, suffering from incurable bowel cancer.
Felix was able to make it out of his bed to celebrate the 'perfect' day afterwards with his new wife, while their two children Ralph, two, and Pearl, four months, looked on.
He was admitted to hospital in November after suffering for several weeks with what he thought at first were stomach cramps.
But after being admitted to hospital on 11 November, doctors found a large tumour in his bowels.
Although they were able to remove it, further tests showed that the cancer had spread and Felix had only weeks to live.
After finding out last week that the cancer is terminal, Felix and Cola decided to marry as soon as possible, and invited their friends and family to a ceremony conducted by the hospital chaplain yesterday.

Speaking to MailOnline, Cola said: 'After a second operation last Friday they discovered that the cancer had spread everywhere. That's it now, there’s no stopping it.
'When they told us I had to leave the room – it was too much to take it. 
'After it all settled down and we got our heads round it as much as we could, Felix just said he wanted to get married as soon as we could. We arranged it for yesterday.
'It was crazy because we were really happy, but it was so emotional.
'It was a lovely day and we’ve been thinking about it today, saying “It was perfect and it couldn’t have gone any better”.
'We had talked about getting married even before he was ill - and when we found out the cancer was terminal we wanted to do it straight away.
