New Video Reveals Davido Performed With Dancers At The 3 Thrones Concert

According to this report by DNMT boss, Michael Igbelabo shows that Davido actually performed with dancers at at the 3Thrones concert and Kaffy wasn't even at the concert.

TheNETng reports that:

Our correspondent immediately reached out to the lead choreographer of DNMT, Michael Igbelabo who spoke to us exclusively, saying Davido did not send his dancers off stage at any time.

In his words, ‘I really understand and appreciate Kaffy standing up for dancers but on this 3 Thrones show, she was not around or involved, the only way she came in is through Tiwa Savage, she’s been her official choreographer for a long time. But for Davido and Phyno’s set, DNMT were the official dancers and no one was sent off stage.’

He continued to say, ‘All Davido said during rehearsals was he won’t want the dancers to do all the songs because he’ll want to do some songs alone, but the organisers insisted and he was cool with it. We did all the songs together and no one complained or shouted backstage and that was why I even posted the video on Instagram the next day.

Davido may have offended Kaffy before that day I wouldn’t know, but am sure of this particular one and of course my dancers know I’ll always fight for them no matter what if he did send them off stage I’ll be the one calling him out.’

Watch the video evidence showing Davido performing with dancers at the show....

Seized $15m: Patience Jonathan Seeks N200m Damages

A Federal High Court in Lagos has fixed December 7, 2016 to hear the N200m fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by wife of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience, against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and Skye Bank Plc to challenge the freezing of four bank accounts containing $15m.

The EFCC placed a ‘No Debit Order’ on the four accounts opened in the name of four companies which were linked to a former Special Adviser on Domestic Affairs to ex-President Jonathan, Waripamo-Owei Dudafa.

But Patience had sued the EFCC and Skye Bank claiming the ownership of the $15m found in the four bank accounts.

According to PUNCH, the matter came up for the first time before Justice Babs Kuewumi on Wednesday.

At the hearing, Patience’s lawyer, Mr. Granville Abibo (SAN), urged the court to restrain the EFCC from tampering with the $15m in the frozen accounts pending the determination of the suit.

He said despite being served with court processes, the EFCC was still making moves that could overreach the court.

After listening to the parties, Justice Kuewumi adjourned till December 7, 2016 for the hearing of the case.

Patience is urging the court to compel the EFCC to immediately remove the ‘No Debit Order’ placed on the four bank accounts in question.

She also wants the court to order Skye Bank to pay her damages in the sum of N200m for what she termed a violation of her right to own personal property under Section 44 of the 1999 Constitution.

Filed in support of the suit was an affidavit deposed to by one Sammie Somiari.

Somiari said it was Dudafa who helped Patience to open the four bank accounts which the EFCC froze.

According to him, Dudafa had on March 22, 2010 brought two Skye Bank officers, Demola Bolodeoku and Dipo Oshodi, to meet Patience at home to open five accounts.

He, however, claimed that after the five accounts were opened, Patience later discovered that Dudafa opened only one of the accounts in her name while the other four were opened in the names of companies belonging to Dudafa.

Police Arrest Lagos Banker For Allegedly Sending Assassins To Kill Her Husband

Ogun State Police have arrested two suspected assassins following an attempted assassination of one Mr. Tochukwu Onyebuchi on alleged order of his estranged wife,who is a staff of one of the new generation banks in Lagos.The suspects identified as Chigozie Nworie and Kingsley Ofotele, were nabbed while escaping to Anambra State with their victim’s Range Rover Jeep, a Sport Utility Vehicle(SUV).

The duo and another suspect currently at large, attacked Tochukwu Onyebuchi in his Compound at Ajah area of Lagos State using cutlass and rods before pouring acid on him. Fortunately, he survived the assassination attempt.

According to The Nation, the suspects were hired by the victim's wife, Oluchi Onyebuchi, 32, to eliminate her husband. She also supplied the weapons used in the botched assassination bid.

Parading the suspect today, before newsmen at the Eleweran Headquarters of the Police Command. the Police Commissioner in Ogun State, Ahmed Iliyasu, said the suspects were taking the SUV to Oluchi’s brother in Anambra as instructed by her when the Police in Ogun arrested the at Ijebu – Ode stretch of Sagamu – Benin expressway last Wednesday. Further investigation led to the arrest of Oluchi on Tuesday, October 25th, at Ayobo area of Lagos State, where she was found hiding in her maiden home.

"One Oluchi who is married to her husband(Tochukwu Onyebuchi) years ago, but the marriage recently has some problems which prompted the couples to separate from each other. The custody of their only child is being contested in court, but Oluchi has another plan. She arranged with the trio of Chigozie Smart Nworie, Kingsley Ikechukwu Ofotele and one other who is now at large to eliminate her husband. She arranged for the weapons – cutlass, Iron rod and acid to be used and kept somewhere in the husband’s compound in Lagos and described where the weapons were kept to the assailants. 
"The suspects went there as planned, matcheted the man severally on his head and poured acid on him. It was the offensive odour that came out from the suit worn by the victim when the acid touched it that made the suspects to quickly abandon him and took away his Range Rover Jeep which the wife instructed them to take and deliver to her brother in Anambra State. Luck ran against them when the Policemen of Ogun State Command sighted the vehicle along Ijebu – Ode – Benin expressway and stopped it for a search. 
While searching the vehicle, blood stain was seen and the two occupants – the suspects, were unable to give satisfactory account of themselves, hence they were arrested," Iliyasu said.

However, while admitting that her marriage of three years is going through rough patch, Oluchi claimed she never intended to kill him and also denied hiring the trio to eliminate her husband.

MUST READ: The Death Wish Of The Ninety Percenters By Isaac Aluko Ademoroti

By Isaac Aluko Ademoroti

Going by all available records, Nigerian politicians generally, shortly before and immediately after independence from Britain, were often referred to as ten percenters.  This was a reference to a situation where ten per cent of the worth of any contract awarded by the then political leaders ended up in their pockets or personal coffers.  It is another way of saying that a tenth of the nation’s resources was misappropriated or stolen by those politicians.  Not unexpectedly, this was a phenomenon that was to be the harbinger of all other forms of corruption. Those were the heady days of Regional politics.

However, according to records, in one or two of those Regions, the leaders, at least, managed to use the remaining ninety per cent of our resources to introduce free and qualitative education and to ensure that the people had access to good medical care.  There was full employment.  There was also a well- thought- out programme of integrated rural development which meant that development was extended to people who lived in the remotest parts. This was the era of farm settlements. Even though there was no oil boom at this time, the first modern sports stadium was built.  The first television station in Africa was also built.  Those leaders were able to notch up several other firsts.  All these things were accomplished using ninety per cent of our resources.

Now, looking back longingly, one could say that the politicians of that era were mere choir boys compared to the present ones who are dangerously rapacious by any standard.  It is a shock that what happens these days is that our politicians steal ninety per cent of our resources.  Perhaps, this was why the immediate past president of the country, Goodluck Jonathan, defiantly refused to accept that stealing is corruption.  To him, political banditry is normal.  This is hardly surprising considering that this was a man who presided over the looting of the nation’s treasury.  The former president’s stance was simply a confirmation that we are dealing with depraved, hardened opportunists.

Is it any wonder that with only ten per cent of our earnings remaining, we do not have enough left to develop the country?  How can ten percent of our resources be sufficient to run a country of almost 200 million people?  Why should people then be surprised when many of our poorly equipped soldiers who go to the war front are brought back in body bags?  Should we not all spare a thought for the family of an Air Force pilot who is ordered to go on a sortie in a rickety, malfunctioning, Stone Age military aircraft?  In all these, the death wish of the ninety percenters is simply coming to pass.

What about our youths?  Millions of these youths are idle as they roam the streets.  It is because only a meagre 10 per cent is left in the national coffers.  There is simply not enough to keep them usefully engaged.  Many university graduates cannot get jobs.  There is no doubt that an idle mind becomes the workshop of the devil.  This explains why many of these youths are attracted to cults which promise them heaven on earth.  They do not realise that they are just being set up for destruction.  Rather than build hundreds of 21st century colleges of Arts, Science and Technology all over the country where the youths can be trained and retrained in all kinds of trades, they are left to roam the streets.  We would rather pander to the wishes of the ninety percenters than care for the future of our youths.

Our motorways, the railways and the waterways are all in a state of disrepair because 90 per cent of our resources are in private accounts.  Money is needed to repair, rebuild and revamp these transport infrastructures.  It is a shame that a nation that generates billions of dollars can also not pay government employees simply because the ninety percenters must have their fill first.  What about our senior citizens, people who have spent their whole lives serving the nation.  Some God-forsaken ninety percenters do not care if these retirees perish as they criss-cross the country chasing their stolen pensions.

The ninety percenters make sure that Nigerians do not have access to good medical care as there is no money left to build modern, excellently equipped hospitals.  Many people, as a result, die from easily preventable, treatable ailments and diseases.  We must not forget the poor, the weak, the disabled and the disadvantaged who are mostly all on their own.  The 90 percenters have always chosen to turn a blind eye to the plight of these people.

Ultimately, the wish of the ninety percenters is for the hopes of the people to be dashed.  It is their fondest desire for our collective aspirations to be destroyed and for the union to die a slow death. Frighteningly, the grim reality is that should this trend continue, the dispensation of the ninety nine percenters may just be around the corner.

This connotes a period when only one percent of our resources will be left to run the country.  When the era of the ninety nine percenters arrives, the chances are that places like Banana Island, Lekki, the exclusive residential areas in Abuja, all government reservation areas in all the state capitals and other places regarded as safe havens by our deluded elite may no longer be safe.  It is then that our leaders will come to the realisation that it might not be wise after all for them to think that they can always shut themselves away from the plight of the generality of the people.

We Will Return Nigeria To Good Old Days Of Accountability - President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has restated the determination of his administration to restore the country to the “good old days of accountability”. Speaking at a meeting Tuesday with the Director, Global Upstream of Shell Oil Company at the State House, Abuja, President Buhari said he will leave a legacy of improved infrastructure, particularly in the power sector, and ensure better security in the Niger Delta.

“It is only by doing this that investor morale and confidence will return, and the economy will be positioned on the path of growth,” the President said. President Buhari, who commended Shell for their faith in the economy and staying power, gave assurances on some issues of concern raised by the company.

On the protracted issue of cash calls, the President assured that the Federal Executive Council will soon consider a proposal for the easing of unpaid arrears owed by the government. President Buhari assured that the security of oil infrastructure will continue to be prioritized side-by-side with the dialogue with stakeholder-communities in the Niger Delta. He, however, urged oil companies to take more responsibility in the protection of oil installations to complement the efforts of Nigerian Navy in the region.

In his remarks, the Shell Director, Mr. Andrew Brown, informed the President of the resumption of oil exportation through the Forcados terminal following its restoration. He called for continued protection by the Nigerian Navy in view of repeated threats of attacks by militants.

Brown commended the anti-corruption posture of the Buhari administration as well as the efforts to streamline and stabilize the economy for long term projects, saying all the efforts will go a long way to reinforce Shell investment plans in Nigeria.

Herdsmen Threat: Fayose Asks Ekiti People To Be Ready For ‘War’

Following the warning given by ‎the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigerian (MACBAN), an association of herdsmen in Nigeria, that the anti-grazing activities of Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose, may degenerate into an unquenchable inferno if not curtailed. 

Governor Fayose yesterday addressed a press conference in the state where he asked residents of the state, particularly those living in border towns to be ready for war with the herdsmen whom he described as 'Philistines'

“I am therefore using this opportunity to put Ekiti people, especially residents of border towns in the State on red alert. Ekiti people must be prepared to defend their land against these Philistines whose attributes and characters are extremism, violence, bloodshed and destruction.”‎

Read the full text from his press conference below:

On Saturday, October 22, 2016, the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), the umbrella body of herdsmen in Nigeria openly threatened to wage war against the government and people of Ekiti State, lying that four cattle belonging to its member were killed by the newly inaugurated Ekiti Grazing Enforcement Marshal (EGEM). Four days after this threat was issued against the government and people of Ekiti State by the Miyetti Allah, the federal government is yet to act in any manner that will disabuse the minds of Ekiti people, who believed that the federal government is in support of the threat. 

The silence of the federal government has no doubt further confirmed the insinuation that there is plot to give tacit support to the herdsmen to invade some border towns and villages in Ekiti State and cause chaos in the State so as to justify the evil agenda of declaration of a state of emergency on the State.
Nigerians should be reminded that in May, this year, Myetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria said openly that the reason for the killing of over 1,000 people in Benue State was the killing of over 800 cattle by Tiv youths. 

In other words, Miyetti Allah boldly told Nigerians that its members (herdsmen) killed over 1,000 Agatu people of Benue State because their cows were killed! 

Up till today, no one has been arrested for the massacre in Agatu in Benue State and now, Ekiti State and its people are being threatened by this same Myetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, and the federal government has pretended as if nothing was wrong. From the words and antecedents of the Miyatti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, it is clear that they have assurance beyond their personal minds from the federal government to kill Nigerians in place of their cows. If not, by now, the man who signed that press statement, threatening the entire people of Ekiti State ought to have been arrested and questioned. 

Therefore, in view of the above, we wish to tell Nigerians and the entire world that in the event of any invasion of Ekiti State by killer herdsmen, the federal government should be held responsible. The herdsmen and those urging them on should also be informed that any attack on one Ekiti person is an attack on all Ekitis and we shall not sit back and allow our people to be killed under the guise of cattle rearing. 

In the event of federal government’s security agencies refusal to secure the lives and properties of Ekiti people, the people will have no option than to defend themselves. Our forefathers did same in the famous Kiriji War and we won’t mind doing the same now! I am therefore using this opportunity to put Ekiti people, especially residents of border towns in the State on red alert. Ekiti people must be prepared to defend their land against these Philistines whose attributes and characters are extremism, violence, bloodshed and destruction. For the avoidance of doubt, the Prohibition of Cattle and other Ruminants Grazing in Ekiti State Bill, 2016 that was signed into law on August 29, 2016 remains in force.Nigeria is a federation and each State is empowered by law to make laws to protects its people. 

Therefore, the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria should rather tell its members to comply with this law by seeking from the government designated land for grazing ranch, which the government is always willing to give. Five cattle that were arrested last week are being kept in the government ranch and their owners can take them back as soon as the necessary fines are paid. 

It is strange that the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria kept silent when its members killed two people and injured several others in Oke Ako in Ekiti State. So strange that the same Miyetti Allah that defended the murder of over 1,000 Agatu people of Benue State and kept silent when herdsmen killed over 100 people killed in Enugu State and a traditional ruler was killed in Delta State suddenly found its voice when Ekiti State government decided to curb the murderous activities of its men. Why didn’t Miyetti Allah that is now calling on President Mohammadu Buhari to warn me, the custodian of the mandate of Ekiti people warn its members when they were killing Nigerians and destroying farmlands? Are their cows more important than human lives? 
To us in Ekiti, lives of 5,000 cows cannot be equated with those of human beings that are being killed daily by herdsmen across the country. 

Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria should know that cattle farmers are not different from other farmers. If they want to rear cows in Ekiti, they should do so in accordance with the laws of the State. After all, law prohibiting sale and consumption of alcohol was made in Kano State and the law is being enforced while Sharia Law made in some States in the north is also being enforced. We therefore want to appeal to all security agencies to be alive to their responsibility of protecting the lives of Nigerians and their properties.

Lagos State Becomes The 5th Largest Economy In Africa

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode on Tuesday expressed delight at the emergence of Lagos as the fifth largest economy in Africa, just as he said his administration is in the process of setting up an Economic Management Team comprised of distinguished individuals from the private sector and the public sector to manage and scale up the successes recorded in that direction.

Governor Ambode, who spoke at the Lagos House in Ikeja when he received a delegation from the Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce on courtesy visit, said the emergence of Lagos was very instructive, adding that government would explore synergy with private sector with the view to catapult Lagos into a true global city-state in the true sense of the word.

“Very soon we would be setting up what we would refer to as an Economic Management Team to drive the fifth largest economy, because that’s the way we need to envision our self and this Economic Management Team will involve nominees from the Chambers and other people in the private sector, so that we can collaborate because majorly this economy is driven by the private sector, our duty is to create an enabling environment and fuse all that together, I think that synergy can just catapult Lagos into that global city state that we want it to be,” Governor Ambode said.
The Governor said there was no doubt about the fact that the economy of Lagos was in the hand of the private sector and the willingness on the part of government to ensure an enabling environment for businesses to thrive, which according to him, was why his administration has been investing massively in security and other business incentives.

According to the Governor, his decision to come up with the Office of Oversees Affairs and Investment, otherwise known as Lagos Global, was part of efforts at encouraging investment in Lagos both from within and outside, among many other initiatives of the present administration.

He said:

“I think it is very instructive to clearly state that the economy of Lagos is in the hands of the private sector and beyond the fact that Lagos is now the fifth largest economy in Africa, the drive to take Nigeria out of recession actually resides in the private sector and willingness on the part of the public sector. 
Because our economy is in the hands of the private sector and we are willing to allow them drive it, that is why we have decided to formulate policies and decisions that will make the private sector to thrive in this State and that is why in the last 18 months, we have been running this administration on a tripod of security, job opportunities and infrastructure development.”

A Mad Woman Told Me To Sacrifice Human Head - Suspect

A 20-year-old man identified as Emmanuel Effiong has said he beheaded a woman at the Aba park on the instructions of a mad woman, who allegedly advised him to throw a human head into a river or he would go mad.

“I gave a mad woman money one day in Aba and she told me to look for a skull or human head and throw inside a river or I will go mad. One morning, when I saw a lifeless body in front of the park, I decided to cut off the dead woman’s head for the exercise. I threw the head into the Aba River to remain a normal person,” he said.

Effiong made the confession while in the custody of the police. He had been arrested by police operatives in Aba, Abia State in connection with a threat to kidnap and kill one Ikechukwu Udogu.

It was gathered that the search for Effiong started when the police got the information that an unknown person, through a phone text, threatened to kill one Udogu, if he failed to pay him a N15m ransom.

It was learnt that police operatives attached to the Central Police Station, Aba, swung into action and arrested the suspect with the mobile phone number used in sending the threat message.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Adeleye Oyabade, who confirmed the arrest of the suspect, said he confessed to the crime.

Oyebade added that the suspect also confessed that he was behind the headless woman found on September 29, 2016 at the Aba main motor park.

He said three knives and a phone were recovered from the suspect, adding that investigation was in progress to unravel the mystery behind the dastardly act.

Speaking with Southern City News, Effiong, who said he hails from Ikot Edet in Akwa Ibom State, accepted that he demanded the ransom from Udogu for refusing to pay him his salary since September 2009.

He said, “I served Mr. Udogu for many years as his gateman, but he stopped paying my salary since September 2009. So, I decided to send him the threat message to get my money from him.”

Shocking Pictures: Galaxy S7 Edge phone Explodes While Charging

Another Samsung phone may be in trouble. A Galaxy S7 Edge owner has released shocking photos amid claims that his phone exploded while charging.

DailyMail reports that an unidentified worker from 'one of the big' US mobile networks claims that a customer brought in severely heat-damaged S7 Edge that had supposedly exploded.

The owner of the phone is said to have been charging it overnight and had recently turned in their Note 7, following the firm's massive product recall.

You recall that Samsung eventually recalled the product and ceased production entirely following numerous reports of the batteries overheating and exploding.

This latest report is not the first time that an S7 Edge is said to have exploded.
A man in Ohio recently sued Samsung after he claims that his handset overheating in his trousers last month, allegedly leaving him with second and third degree burns, reports PhoneArena.

Reacting to this new story, a Samsung spokesperson told MailOnline:

I Did Not Rape Her, I Only Put My Manhood In Her Mouth-Teacher Who Defiled 12-year-old Pupil

A teacher, Enilolobo Olamilekan at Agbokunloko College, Ikotun, Lagos State, yesterday denied defiling a 12-year-old student, insisting that he only put his penis in her mouth.Olamilekan, who hails from Lagos State, admitted to have lured the girl to his parent’s apartment , where he took advantage of the 12-year-old Junior Secondary School 2 student.

While paraded by the Police yesterday,20-year-old teacher, Enilolobo Olamilekan, told newsmen

“I usually teach the victim and two others after school hours at Ikotun. When the girl was brought to my place, I said they should buy a notebook for her, but her parents did not.
Last Wednesday, I gave her an assignment, but she did not do it. When she came to me on Thursday during school period, I asked of the notebook, she said her mother did not give her the money. I told her to go to JSS one class and join the other two girls; that I would soon be with them.
“When I was done with my classes, I joined them there and taught them for the day. My house is not far from the school.
My mum called me to come home and do the dishes. “I told the girl to go with me, that I would buy the notebook for her at a woman’s shop near my house. She went with me; I bought the book for her and she said she was hungry. I bought biscuit for her and as I was about to go, the woman said I should bring her bottle which had been with me. I told her I would bring it later, but she refused.
She said the victim should go with me to the house, so that I would give her the bottle. That was how the girl went with me to the house. “I took her inside our parlour. I put her on the chair and put my manhood in her mouth.
I did not touch her private part. They have done a test and confirmed I did not touch her there. She did not cry and she did not complain. But she went home and reported to her parents.
“I only put my male organ inside the mouth of the girl. I did not rape her. I just do not know what got into me. However, I’m ready to face the consequences of my action. I know I have committed a crime and I’m guilty.Whatever is my punishment; I’ll face it and hope God would have mercy on me. I have never done something like this before. I do not have a girlfriend"

The bubble burst after the girl’s curious mother got wind of what happened and subsequently reported the case at the Ikotun Police Division.

Budget: Pres Buhari Writes NASS To Borrow $29.96bn External Loan

President Buhari today forwarded a letter to the National Assembly requesting legislative approval for external borrowing plan of $29.960 billion to execute key infrastructural projects across the country between 2016 and 2018.

The president also requested for virement of N180.8 billion in the 2016 budget for provision of needed votes for some critical sectors across the 36 states of the federation and the FCT. President Buhari made the requests in two separate letters addressed to Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara.

The president, in the external borrowing plan, explained that targeted projects cuts across all sectors with special emphasis on infrastructure, agriculture, health, education, water supply, growth and employment generation. President Buhari in the letter, stated that the cost of the projects and programmes under the borrowing (rolling) plan is $29.960 billion. This is made up of proposed projects and programmes loan of $11.274 billion, Special National Infrastructure projects $10.686 billion, Euro bonds of $4.5 billion and Federal Government budget support of $3.5 billion.

He explained further that the loan was very necessary in view of the serious infrastructure deficit in the country. He said the country had huge infrastructure deficit and enormous financial resources required to fill the gap in the face of dwindling resources.

“This is in addition to the inability of our annual budgetary provisions to bridge the deficit. It has become necessary to resort to prudent external borrowing to bridge the financing gap. This will largely be applied to key infrastructure projects namely power, railway and roads among others,” he said.

Buhari said the N180 billion would be moved from monies already appropriated for special intervention programmes both recurrent and capital for funding of critical recurrent and capital items.

The letter reads in part: “In the course of implementing the 2016 Appropriation Act, several MDAs have presented issues pertaining to salary shortfalls, the settlement of part of which has led to the depletion of the Public Service Wage Adjustment. This Vote, which had a provision of N33,597,400,000, now has a balance of N2, 758,296,000. The provision for NYSC in the 2016 budget is inadequate to cater for the number of corps members to be mobilised this year. In fact, an additional N8.5 billion is required to cover the backlog of 129,469 corps members who are due for call-up but would otherwise be left out till next year due to funding constraints. Similarly, the provision for meal subsidy for the Unity Colleges is inadequate for the number of students in the schools. Due to the devaluation of the Naira, the budgetary provisions for the foreign missions are no longer sufficient to cover all their costs.”

In another letter dated October 24th, President Buhari also requested the National Assembly to approve the virement of funds appropriated for special intervention (recurrent) and special intervention (capital) to fund some critical recurrent and capital items.

According to him, the reasons for the request for virement, include shortfalls in provisions for personnel costs; inadequate provision ab initio for some items like the amnesty programme; continuing requirements to sustain the war against insurgency and depreciation of the naira.

“However, considering the fact that budgeted revenues are running behind target due to the renewed violence in the Niger Delta. Also there are no supplementary revenue sources, the most viable option for now is the virement of appropriated funds from heads or sub-heads that may not be fully utilised before the end of this fiscal year,” Buhari added

'I Believe We're Winning In Polls, Don't Believe The Media' - Donald Trump Tells Rally

Donald Trump on Monday told a crowd of supporters in Florida that he is in the leading the White House race in polls, telling them to forget reports by the main stream media such as CNN who in a recent poll said Clinton was passing Trump by 5% among likely voters..

"Some great polls have just come out. I believe we're actually winning," Trump said, while slamming the mainstream media.

The Billionaire business man then cited two polls, which show he's in the lead.

"The Investors (Business) Daily poll, which was the single most accurate poll for the last three cycles. The last three presidential races. We're up. We just went up. We were down three. We were down five. We're now two up in Rasmussen. Just came out this morning. We're up in another couple of polls," Trump said.

However, the majority of national polls show Trump isn't leading.

A new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows Clinton with a 12-point lead over Trump among likely-voters.
Trump also told the crowd in Florida he was leading in key states.

"We're up in Ohio, we're up in Iowa. We're doing great in North Carolina," he said. "I think we're doing great in Florida. I think we're really -- I think we're going to win Florida big."

Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway revealed over the weekend that Trump was behind and said Clinton's big name supporters such as Obama and Bill Clinton is responsible for her position in the polls

"We are behind. She has some advantages," Conway told NBC's "Meet the Press," adding that Clinton "has a former president, happens to be her husband, campaigning for her; the current president and first lady, vice president -- all much more popular than she can hope to be. And she's seen as the incumbent."

Jason Miller, Trump's senior communications adviser, told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on the "Situation Room" Monday that the campaign is doing "fantastic."

"Let me tell you where he's behind. He's behind in Pennsylvania, slightly. He's behind slightly in Michigan. There's these blue states Mr. Trump is putting into play where we get zero credit for doing so," he said. "We're leading in places like Iowa, which has been blue the last couple of cycles. We're leading in Ohio. We're probably a tied race in North Carolina. We might be slightly ahead there.

 In Florida, I believe we're within the margin in that state. We're ahead with absentees at this moment.
: "We believe we're winning this race. Mr. Trump said that in his very last rally that he was in. That's the real reflection of where we are as a campaign."

FCT Bans Cows From Streets

The Federal Capital Territory has started a major wipe out on cattle movement in the streets of Abuja. This is happening after residents held a protest that the animals constitute nuisance and possess threat to their healthy living, prompting the FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Bello to hold a meeting with members of the Miyatti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria in Abuja, where he ordered the herdsmen to move their cattle out of the city for the safety of the residents.

‘You have to understand that when Abuja Environment Protection Board says cattle should not roam the city, it is not because they want to prevent cattle breeders from raring cattle in the FCT. Basically, it is just for safety, it’s for the safety of your cattle and above all, safety of the citizens.’ Meanwhile, according to the reports culled from News Agency of Nigeria, the Ministerial Task Team on environment under the Chairmanship of Squadron leader, Abdullahi Monjel will take up the responsibility to combat movement of cows from the street.
