NASS transmits 2018 Budget to Buhari todayThe Sun News


NASS transmits 2018 Budget to Buhari today 

The National Assembly will today transmit the harmonised 2018 Budget to President Muhammadu Buhari for assent. 

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki disclosed this to State House Correspondents after breaking his Ramadan fast with President Buhari, Thursday night at the Presidential Villa Abuja.

Both chambers of the Assembly had on May 16, 2018 approved the budget estimates submitted by Buhari on November 7, 2017.

The lawmakers also raised the total figure from N8.6 trillion to N9.1 trillion, six months after it was presented.
The 2018 budget was prepared when crude oil price was hinged at $45/barrel, but passed when prices have risen closer to $80/barrel, prompting the National Assembly to peg the new crude benchmark at $60/barrel. Besides, the lawmakers retained the 2.2mpd oil output saying it is workable given that we’ve enjoyed some stability in output.
Prof Uche Uwaleke, Dean of Economic Department at Nasarawa State University said the raise was quite realistic given recent market and industry trends.

He however expressed fears over implementation of capital project in the budget as it has almost run half of its cycle without been assented to by President Muhammadu Buhari. “

Again, we’ve recorded some improvement in non-oil revenue generation like VAIDS. So the jerk up was justifiable and in the N9.1 trillion budget, there is bigger provision for debt servicing and capital expenditure. The country can accommodate this new budget proposal and we can look at how we can cut down on deficit,” he explained.

Uwaleke, however, expressed fears that the jerk up may attract further delays in having it passed because the executive arm of the government will likely want to scrutinise the job done by the lawmakers.

Benue, Taraba killings caused by spread of sharia –Can presidentThe Sun News


•Indicts security agencies, backs Onaiyekan on 2019 presidency

President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Revd Samson Ayokunle, has said that killings across the country were as a result of moves to spread Sharia across the country as declared earlier by the leader of the Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau.

Ayokunle who spoke exclusively with Saturday Sun in Abuja on the sideline of the celebration of Europe Day, declared absolute support to John Cardinal Onaiyekan’s recent statement that the way Christians mobilized against corruption in the 2015 presidential election, the Christendom is going to mobilize against continued corruption and insecurity in the 2019 election.

According to Ayokunle, “The problem is people taking laws into their hands; people becoming sick about religious ideas, mentally sick, thinking that they will by force, sweep over every place and convert everybody to their religion because Abubakar Shekau didn’t mince words about his intention. He said it loud and clear that his intention was to establish Sharia from the north to the south, to the Atlantic Ocean.”

Taking a swipe at the security agencies, Ayokunle said “The security agencies were not helpless, but they didn’t do their work as they ought to do. Why should they be helpless? Is it because they were not given weapons? Was it because they were not trained? They were trained, they were given weapons. But what we see which we have been talking about is complicity.”

Ayokunle spoke on this and plans by CAN to ensure that the right person is voted into the presidency in 2019, which he said, will be “somebody in the mind of God.” AIDOGHIE PAULINUS conducted the interview.

During the 2018 first plenary of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria in Abuja, you hinted that the Catholic Church would be returning to CAN. Have they returned fully?

Partially. Because they have joined us in the review of the constitution and that they didn’t do before. So, we are reviewing the new constitution together. Their promise was that they will be back fully when we finish with the constitution review because they believe that the new constitution will set the tone for the CAN of their dream.

Are you saying the CAN of their idea?

The CAN of their own dream and they feel is the ideal CAN.

What, in your understanding, led to that alienation in the first place?

It wasn’t alienation. It was because they didn’t want a misunderstanding that will blow out. Instead of being involved in rancour, they decided to step aside and then, they wrote what they wanted and we invited them and they came and we agreed that we would review the constitution and they said they will join in the review of the constitution. So, this happens in any human society.

Could it be that they didn’t like the direction the Ayo Oritsejafor-led CAN was heading to?

It was not about a personality. It is about the whole system itself, which they felt needed overhaul. The constitution that has been drafted since 1986 or thereabout needed a review. That was what happened.

The protest that CAN called for across the country in the wake of killings, how did you see the turnout? Were you pleased with it?

Quite pleased. That was the first time we will go to that extent and we did that because we cannot bear with bloodshed again. Bloodshed of innocent people and the government continues to promise that the security agencies are on top of issues and the next day, another one. If we are not careful, everybody will be eliminated. And somebody must be ready to speak for others.

Apart from that protest, what other actions do you hope to take?

Well, as things unfold, we will let you know. But we are praying. We are praying and we are also dialoguing with people, even dialoguing with government.

Are you also planning to give international dimension to it?

We have been drawing the attention of the international community to what is happening because Nigeria is an intrinsic part of the international community. If we have refugees increasing in Nigeria, it will not only affect the West African sub-region. Europe is very close to us; it will affect Europe. So, this is what we are saying. Before humanitarian crisis begins, the entire world must come to our aid to rescue this situation.

From your personal view, what do you think the problem is?

The problem is people taking laws into their hands; people becoming sick about religious ideas, mentally sick, thinking that they will by force, sweep over every place and convert everybody to their religion because Abubakar Shekau didn’t mince words about his intention. He said it loud and clear that his intention was to establish Sharia from the north to the south, to the Atlantic Ocean.

It seems that in the affected areas, the security agencies are helpless. Will you advise residents, particularly Christians, to defend themselves?

The security agencies were not helpless, but they didn’t do their work as they ought to do. Why should they be helpless? Is it because they were not given weapons? Was it because they were not trained? They were trained, they were given weapons. But what we see which we have been talking about is complicity.


So, General Danjuma was right?

Before Danjuma said that, you saw the paper I presented in Aso Rock in November 2017 when we met the president for the first time, that we are afraid of complicity because how can the insurgents who didn’t have formal military training be beating our security agencies who were well trained for their job; I mean, just like that as if they were clueless and they are still clueless. What of their intelligence service? Before these people will carry out their acts, why didn’t their intelligence unit reveal what was going to happen?

We talk of complicity again because of this situation of the Dapchi girls. Two weeks before Boko Haram struck in that school, the security agencies withdrew from that region. Was it not to give the Boko Haram safe passage? They took them away. Complicity again when they were to return the children; there was no interruption at all. They drove to the city. The girls came back with brand new bags as if they went on tour.

What do you think the government should do?

You also know what the government should do. They should be alive to their responsibility. And I have said it that they should not be campaigning for 2019 if they do not stop the bloodshed.

Is CAN coming out with a Christian presidential candidate in 2019?

No. We are not politicians, but we encourage Christians, called of God into politics to make themselves available in the service to their motherland because we believe that if God has called them, He has put what they will use to give Nigerians hope in them.

President Buhari got popular support in 2015. Will you say that the confidence reposed in him has been dashed?

Only the public can do that. I don’t know.

As we move towards the 2019 election, what is CAN planning to do?

We are already mobilizing, mobilizing in the sense of giving people political awareness. The Bible says my people perish for lack of knowledge. We have a population that is massive in this country, but we have not been taking advantage of that because of laissez faire attitude during the time of voting. People will not get voters card, they will not go and vote and bad leaders will be emerging. We must put a stop to that.

Is that move to vote out President Buhari in 2019?

It is to vote the right person in, somebody in the mind of God.
Cardinal Onaiyekan said that the way Christians mobilized against corruption in the 2015 presidential election, the Christendom is going to mobilize against continued corruption and insecurity in the 2019 election. Do you support that?

Absolutely! Will you not support that

Moses ruled out of 2018 World Cup


Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, is now left with 29 players from which to select his team for the 2018 World Cup, after Moses Simon was ruled out of the tournament as a result of an injury.

Simon, who plays for Belgian Jupiler League side, Gent, will not feature in Monday’s friendly against the Democratic Republic of Congo, DRC, nor the subsequent game against England on June 2.

Rohr confirmed the development to Premium Times in Port Harcourt.

“It is unfortunate Moses Simon will not be travelling with the team on Tuesday because he is down with an injury.

“The nature of his injury is such that he won’t be recovering quickly enough to make the World Cup,” Rohr said.

Meanwhile, the German coach will drop four more players from the squad after the game against DR Congo.

Biggest Weekend: Taylor Swift plays the hits then runs in Swansea


Taylor Swift

Image caption

Swift by name, swift by nature… the star was on stage for 28 minutes

Taylor Swift stayed true to her name, playing a brief, but flawless, set at the BBC’s Biggest Weekend in Swansea.

Effectively a stripped-back supercut of her current world tour, the six-song performance largely focused on the star’s 2017 album Reputation.

She opened with the pummelling goth-pop of Ready For It, before racing through songs like Gorgeous and Delicate.

Fans were forced to wait to the end to hear the classics Blank Space and Shake It Off – and then it was all over.

But if the 26,000-strong audience who’d crammed into Swansea’s Singleton Park felt short-changed, they didn’t show it, shimmying along with Swift and her tightly-drilled dancers.

“You’re not just singing along but you’re screaming along… which is the best,” said Taylor, as she took stock of the crowd.

“It kind of took my breath away a little bit when I first came out here.”

The star also worked in two separate plugs for her UK tour dates (which are yet to sell out) live on BBC TV and radio.

But if her set was ruthless in its efficiency, it was nonetheless a masterclass in pop – from Swift’s effortless vocals and shape-throwing choreography to her adorable between-song banter.

“Oh wait, this is in the wrong key!” she laughed as she fumbled the start of Delicate, sliding a capo up the neck of her guitar to find the right note.

“She was fantastic. She’s amazing. She’s unique,” said Lauren, a Swansea resident who’d come especially to see the US star.

“You don’t often get to see Taylor Swift in Swansea, let’s be fair.”

Swift’s Reputation was one of 2017’s biggest-selling albums

“It was briefer than I thought it was going to be,” added Chantelle from Miskin, Rhondda Cynon Taff.

“I was expecting a little bit more Swifty but she looked good.”

Charis Lee, from Abergavenny, commented: “I’d have liked to hear some of the older stuff – but she was amazing.”

Swift will be followed onto the stage by Sunday’s headline act Florence + The Machine.

Camila Cabello said she’d enjoyed her first experience of Wales

Earlier in the day, Camila Cabello – who is supporting Swift on her current world tour – gave a spectacular performance on Swansea’s main stage, playing her own hits Havana and Never Be The Same alongside snippets of Prince’s Purple Rain and Can’t Help Falling In Love.

The 21-year-old’s pin-sharp choreography and exuberant charisma made her one of the day’s stand-out performers – a feat that was all the more impressive given that she was battling the heat, jet-lagged, in a black catsuit.

“Why did I do that?” she laughed, as she spoke to BBC News after the show.

“It was so hot up there, I thought I was going to pass out at one point but I was like, ‘I’m going to give everything to Swansea. They’ll have to carry me out of here!'”

The singer, who arrived in Wales on Saturday night after playing a show on Swift’s world tour in Denver, said she’d been impressed by her first encounter with the country.

“I was in Cardiff last night and we were walking outside. It was like 11pm and there was a lady that was… drunk. She was wasted.

“She was approaching this guy [who was] playing guitar. And she was like, ‘Play Havana!’ and she started singing the chorus.

“I got out my phone to record it, and she just stumbled away!”

Media captionRita Ora made Avicii’s song the centrepiece of her set

Other performers in Swansea on Sunday included Rita Ora, who opened the main stage with a clutch of her own hits, and a tribute to dance star Avicii, who died last month.

One Direction star Niall Horan led a mass singalong to his solo tracks Slow Hands and This Town, as well as a slowed-down reggae-lite version of the 1D hit Drag Me Down.

Demi Lovato, Stefflon Don, Thirty Seconds To Mars and Jason Derulo also kept the crowd entertained as they waited for Swift and Florence + The Machine, who will close the event.

Shawn Mendes drew one of the day’s biggest crowds to the stage in Swansea’s Singleton Park

Meanwhile, Coventry’s War Memorial Park saw Radio 2 continue its contribution to the Biggest Weekend, with sets from Snow Patrol and UB40.

The main stage was kicked off by Welsh rocker Stereophonics – who aren’t used to such an early morning slot.

“Let me think how it was sold to us,” singer Kelly Jones told the BBC. “Remember that time that U2 and Paul McCartney opened up Live 8?

“And we could be back in the pub by five. So yeah, we took it.”

One artist who brought some Caribbean sunshine to Coventry was Billy Ocean, whose crowd-pleasing set included the Bob Marley classic No Woman, No Cry as well as Love Really Hurts, Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car and, of course, Caribbean Queen.

Image caption

Billy Ocean said he was thrilled by the response to his set in Coventry

“I saw lots of people enjoying themselves,” he said after coming off the stage. “The energy from them comes back to you. We keep doing what we do because we make people happy. There’s nothing like it.”

Full coverage of the four-day music festival is available on BBC TV, radio and the dedicated Biggest Weekend website.

The event wraps up in Coventry on Monday, with a day dedicated to classical music, including sets by Nigel Kennedy, Eliza Carthy and a “Strictly Spectacular” featuring the show’s professional dancers and the BBC Concert Orchestra.

Take me back to Workers’ day!
My husband informed me that Mother in Law will be visiting the day before workers’ day. Yeay! “Wetin I go cook
ooooo?” was the question playing in my head.

At this point you’re wondering, ‘Why the pressure?’ Well, it was because of one reason only – MY MOTHER-IN LAW.
Though she is sweet and loving, when it comes to criticising someone’s cooking, she becomes another person. From
“The salt is too much now” to her special yab “Between you and this pounded yam, who was pounding who?” you
simply cannot please her. I decided to make white rice and tomato stew my main dish with some dodo & vegetables on the side, hoping to make the mother of my other half, proud. Next, I made a list of my ingredients and set out to get them from my special customer, Iya Moria at the market. That was how my prayers were answered. While shopping for my ingredients, five women came in together to do some shopping as well. I noticed how they all asked for this Ogbonge seasoning powder and purchased it individually. This made me wonder what was so special about it. “This one gets better aroma o. E fit wake person from sleep” was what Iya Moria told me. So, I decided to give it a try.

On Workers’ day, I did not even wait for the alarm to ring. I was up as early as 5 a.m. to cook. I put all my ingredients
on the table and started spicing things up. Just when I almost forgot about the new seasoning powder, I saw the
attractive sachet and quickly reached for it. As I poured it into the pot, Iya Moria’s words rang in my head. One by
one, family members were practically sleepwalking to the kitchen because the aroma had drawn them in.

Everyone just gathered round the kitchen and started munching away. I actually had to make a second batch
because people were requesting for take-away packs. It was when I saw my sweet mother-in- law holding two packs
that I knew I had arrived. My yanga come dey reach heavenly places, all thanks to ROYCO STEW SEASONING MIX.
Honestly, this new seasoning powder has earned a permanent place in my kitchen cabinet so that I can make yanga
all the time. Royco you deserve some accolades!!!

Harry, Meghan go straight to work after lavish wedding


Prince Harry and his new wife Meghan began married life on Sunday after their spectacular, rule-breaking wedding, but will be delaying a honeymoon as they turn immediately to royal duties.

The newly ennobled Duke and Duchess of Sussex staged a huge party after the ceremony on Saturday at Windsor Castle, where they were greeted by around 100,000 people lining the streets and watched by millions around the world.

The beaming couple were seen driving to the evening bash in a vintage Jaguar, Meghan having changed from her sweeping Givenchy wedding gown into a sleek Stella McCartney halterneck dress, with Harry switching his military frockcoat for black tie.

On the bride’s finger was a large aquamarine ring, which belonged to Harry’s beloved late mother, Diana.

Details of the bash, hosted by Prince Charles in a house on the castle grounds for 200 close friends and family, were a top secret although fireworks were seen over Windsor late in the evening.

Some of the celebrities who attended the earlier service, including George Clooney and tennis star Serena Williams, were also spotted heading in.

The wedding was unlike no other the royal family has ever staged, a mix of the pageantry that Britain does so well, with celebrity razzmatazz and African-American culture.

In a ceremony filled with laughs and not a few tears, the couple held hands throughout, and the prince was visibly emotional as he greeted his bride at the altar saying: “You look amazing.”

A gospel choir sang “Stand By Me” and US pastor Michael Curry delivered a passionate, lengthy address about the power of love, referencing slavery.

Meghan, a mixed-race television actress, also made her mark by walking up the aisle partly on her own, and giving a speech at the evening reception.

“Kisstory: Harry & Meg’s historic change for monarchy,” headlined The Sun on Sunday, with a photograph of the couple kissing on the steps of St George’s Chapel.

“If ever there was a wedding to symbolise modern, multi-cultural, multi-racial Britain, yesterday’s was it,” the Sunday Mirror wrote in an editorial.

“Disney could not have come up with a better princess,” said the Sunday Telegraph, while The Mail on Sunday simply said: “Harry ever after!”

– Back to work –

After staying at Windsor overnight, Harry and Meghan were due to return to their home at Kensington Palace in London.

They will not be taking a honeymoon immediately, as they are scheduled to attend a garden party for Harry’s father Prince Charles, the heir to the throne, at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.

Meghan and Charles have reportedly forged a strong bond, and he stepped in to escort her to the altar at the wedding after her own father pulled out following a media furore and subsequent heart surgery.

Charles also invited Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland, the only member of the Markle family to attend the wedding, for tea before the big day and chatted to her in the church.

“Thank you to everyone who came to Windsor and those who followed from around the UK, the Commonwealth, and the world,” said an @RoyalFamily tweet.

As a formal member of the royal family, Meghan now has her own section of the royal.uk website, which highlights her charity work — and plays down her acting career.

The section “About the Duchess of Sussex” notes her activism from an early age, as well as her work with UN Women, One Young World and World Vision, with only a passing reference to “filming in Toronto”.

The biography section offers a few more details about Meghan’s near 15-year career as an actress, including in hit US television series “Suits”, shot in Toronto.

It also references her lifestyle blog, The Tig — which, like her acting, she has given up to join the House of Windsor.

NCC receives N4.7m Super Sim Card innovation project


By Emmanuel Elebeke

The Vice Chancellor of Federal University of Technology, FUT Minna, Prof. Abdullahi Bala on Monday led a team of researchers comprised of students and scientists from the university to present two technology innovation projects funded by the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC.

•Prof Umar Garba Danbatta

The two projects, Seamless multiple operator enabled SIM cards Mobile Communication Enabled Walking Stick, which are being sponsored by the NCC at the tune of N4.7million are designed to address the issue of subscribers using multiple phones and sim cards due to poor quality of service in keeping with the consideration for national roaming that is being promoted by the commission.

Presenting the novel devices, the lead researcher and head, depertment of Mechatronics engineering FUT Minna, Prof. Abiodun Musa Aibinu explained that the first project, The Seamless Data and Voice Connection Over Multiple Operator Enabled SIM Card enables a subscriber have one sim card for all networks or one mobile phone with one sim card for all networks.

The device applies to all available network in a particular location.

‘‘We are talking about disrupting the eco-system in the telecommunication industry in the sense that with just one sim card, you can access the available networks without porting or buying multiple SIMS.

‘‘People carry a lot of phones or Sims as a result of quality of service and you are not certain of the network strength of an area, So using basic engineering and the technology behind Mobile phone, we infused in it Artificial Intelligence, AI system to be able the device take intelligent decision on behalf of the user to switch from the network with poor quality of service to another with better quality service.

‘‘What this means is that subscribers are now the king and can enjoy quality of service even without having more than one phone and the product will soon hit the market.’’

On the second innovation, Development of Mobile Communication Enabled Walking Stick, Prof. Aibinu said the innovation with mobile phone imbedded was designed to aid the user, especially the aged and the blind/disabled persons navigate through dangerous sports, and at the same time make calls when necessary.

‘‘The Walking Stick is about having a walking stick that has anything you can imagine, your mobile phone is embedded in it, obstacle avoidance and then it has means of communicating with your headgear giver.’’

The Vice Chancellor of the University, represented by Deputy Director, Research, in the institution, Prof Moses Olutoye, in his remarks said the essence of the innovations is to disrupt the existing technology.

He described The Walking Stick as an equipment that can be used when one is alone at old age or when one is in danger.

He explained that the it was designed to look like a walking stick because it was designed to make calls, and also with some devices that can detect obstacles in case the user is approaching a danger point.

‘‘It is enabled for the blind and the disabled to avoid obstacles. Even, the blind or disabled people can use it too to help them when they are approaching obstacle. It guides them to know when to change their path,’’ he added.

Responding, the Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, Prof. Umar Danbatta who expressed satisfaction with the feat attained by the institution said the NCC sponsored the projects in keeping with the consideration for National Roaming Plan that is being promoted now by the commission.

He commended the team for living up to its tasks of utilizing the N4.7million grant to innovate a disruptive technology that could enhance the existing quality of service in the country.

Prof. Danabba, who was represented by the Executive Commissioner NCC, Engr. Ubale Maska said since the innovation is looking into the future it would be of immense benefit to the telecom industry because the industry is very dynamic.

‘‘A device that selects any network that is available is something that all the network operators will accept and it is in keeping with the consideration for national roaming that is being promoted now by the commission.

‘‘We are really pleased today with the results shown by FUT Minna. It shows that they have been able to accomplish every single thing with the grants given by the NCC.

‘‘They are visionary enough to look beyond what we expect them to do, and they are determined to take it to the next level.

‘‘You notice today, there are phones that have multiple SIM cards you have to consciously choose the SIM you want but their project on Super SIM card can automatically select the SIM with the available network based on pre-determined instructions, so it is very relevant.

‘‘The industry is very dynamic and this certainly looks at the future, a device that selects any network that is available is something that all the network operators will accept and it is in keeping with the consideration for national roaming that is being promoted now by the commission.

‘‘We had hoped they would conclude the project within a year so that they will get more but it has taken the last three years. But we are happy because research work like this is usually on-going all the time.

‘‘We will encourage them to get investors who will continue to explore their possibility. It is something that is keeping to the mandate of the commission, the eight point agenda of the current leadership.’’
