Bishop Kukah debunks rumours – I didn’t collect even a penny from Goodluck Jonathan

The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Mathew Hassan Kukah, has rubbished allegations that he was close with former President Goodluck Jonathan because he gave him money.
Clarifying the air on the matter, Kukah denied the allegations saying: “Despite my friendship with Jonathan over this long period of time, we never discussed a penny, we never discussed one dollar; we never exchanged a penny, and we never exchanged a dollar.”
Rev. Kukah revealed this in the current edition of The Interview, Kukah said those who thought they could smear him by warming up to President Muhammadu Buhari were responsible for fantasising his relationship with Jonathan.
“Suddenly, journalists whom I knew were writing, hoping they would be given positions (by Buhari) and all those who were abusing me have gone full cycle,” he said.
 
He went on: “Those who should be ashamed of themselves are those who took money from Jonathan, tonnes of it, and have decided to lie, buried under the table; they have decided to change course in the middle of the race. Those are the guys who you should be talking about.”
In a statement, The Interview Managing Director/Editor-In-Chief, Azu Ishiekweme, said: “This is Kukah with his gloves off, anti-Kukahs of every stripe have their match in this issue.”
The clergyman revealed that “certain people in the PDP” have been telling him that Jonathan should have had a long-drawn-out exit, like the disgraced Gambian President Yahaya Jammeh.
He spoke about the continuing detention of the Shiite leader, El-Zakzakky, and the bill for a Christian court, expressing concern that “we are going back, we’re not getting better.”
The edition also explores the love language of public figures, including advertising icon, Lolu Akinwunmi; journalist Funke Treasure-Durodola; the director of Leventis Food, Tasos Amanatidis; and author and celebrity, Teju Babyface.

Notorious burglar mercilessly beaten & buried alive [Video]

A serial burglar who had been terrorizing the people in Dwarsloop village in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga of South Africa, was taught a lesson he would never forgive in his life after he was caught by residents after another of his stealing spree.

According to Times Live, after beating the suspected burglar for several minutes, the angry mob forced him to dig his own grave where he was buried up to his chest level while they continued to beat him.

The strange jungle justice which was captured on video, showed the crowd descending on the suspect who was described as a very notorious who had broken into many homes in the area and even after he was caught and beaten up several times in the past, would not stop stealing.

But after he was caught this time, the residents decided to teach him a lesson he won’t forget in a hurry.

According to the person who recorded the scene,  Tumelo Dibakwane, after he was half buried in his grave, the crowd wanted to set the thief on fire but he was lucky as the police arrived just in time just as the crowd had got the petrol and was set to set him ablaze.

“Someone was suggesting they put petrol on him and burn him. If the police were late by five minutes‚ they had the petrol‚ someone managed to get petrol. The garage was just a few meters away‚” Dibakwane was quoted as saying.

According to Mpumalanga SAPS spokesman Sergeant Gerald Sedibe, the man is still in the hospital recovering from his injuries.

“The police condemn such behaviour where people take the law into their own hands. We urge people to follow the right procedure should they suspect someone of being involved in criminal activity,” Sgt. Sedibe said.

Tonto Dikeh – “I am free from psychopaths”

Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh just shared a cryptic quote about physical and verbal abusers.

Apparently, she’s throwing a subtle shade at her estranged husband calling him a psychopath and being finally free from him.

The quote reads, “Most of us were taught to identify physical and verbal abuse, but with psychopaths, the abuse is not so obvious.

You likely won’t even understand that you were in an abusive relationship until long after it’s over.

Through personalised and idealisation and subtle devaluation, a psychopath can effectively erode the identity of any chosen target.

From an outsider’s perspective, you will appear to have lost it, while the psychopath calmly walks away, completely unscathed.

Psychopath free.

This comes after her estranged husband, Oladunni Churchill, released  evidence to refute many of his ex-wife’s claims.

The businessman’s brother, Tokunbo, in a recent interview, says he once witnessed Tonto Dikeh in “one of her moods”.

According to him, she slapped her husband and began to destroy things in their home.

Tonto Dikeh and Churchill are currently embroiled in an ongoing marital drama.

Yakubu Dogara – APC has performed very well governing Nigeria

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has said that the Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress administration has performed creditably despite its challenges.

Mr. Yakubu Dogara stated this at an interactive session with newspaper editors in Abuja on Tuesday.
The speaker said Nigerians who criticise the government’s performance should put into context what the administration met when it assumed office in 2015.

“What was it that we met on ground?” he said. “A lot has been achieved.”

Yakubu mentioned two major areas where he said the government has succeeded to be in the fight against Boko Haram and anti-corruption efforts.
“This government has ensured that the terrorists are not holding any measure of land” Mr. Dogara said.
The taming of Boko Haram has been repeatedly mentioned as one of the successes of the Buhari administration so far. The insurgents had by 2014 controlled large swaths of land in north-eastern Nigeria, particularly Borno, Adamawa, and Yobe State. President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday vowed that the Boko Haram or any terror group will not control any part of Nigeria while he is in office.
Despite losing most of the territory they controlled, the insurgents still carry out random attacks on civilians and security officials. The latest of such attack led to the kidnap of 10 people in Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State.

WINNING CORRUPTION WAR
On corruption, Mr. Dogara said sanity is gradually returning to the system.
“We are beginning to have results on corruption. Sanity is returning,” he said.
The speaker said although it was impossible to completely eradicate corruption, it was being reduced in the polity by the Buhari administration.
Mr. Dogara’s commendation of the anti-corruption war came on the same day the Senate insisted on the removal of an anti-corruption chief.
The Senate has twice rejected the nomination of Ibrahim Magu as the substantive chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, due to a report by the State Security Service, SSS, that the nominee lacks integrity to lead the country’s anti-corruption agency.
On Tuesday, the Senate refused to clear President Buhari’s nominees as electoral officials unless he removes Mr. Magu as acting EFCC chairman.
Mr. Dogara also spoke on the relationship between the executive and the legislature saying the two arms of government are not expected to have a smooth ride at all times.
“It was never anticipated for the legislature and executive to work harmoniously on a continuous basis” he said. “For you to have innovation and progress, people must be free to disagree.”
The speaker, who said the government has other areas where it needs to improve on, however, said the House of Representatives tries to work with the executive to ensure all its major projects are successful and can benefit Nigerians.

Algeria’s Sofiane Feghouli admits: It’ll be difficult to beat Nigeria to 2018 WC spot

Algeria and West Ham midfielder, Sofiane Feghouli, has admitted that it will be difficult for his country, to beat Nigeria to the 2018 World Cup ticket as the Super Eagles are very well placed to book a sport to the tournament.

The Desert Foxes are currently bottom of African qualifying Group B with one point, five behind leaders, the Super Eagles.

Reigning African champions, Cameroon is second with two points, while Zambia is third with just one point.

“I think the World Cup is the very best competition in terms of the feelings and emotions that it generates,” Sofiane Feghouli told West Ham official website on Tuesday.

“If you haven’t played in it, you can’t know exactly what it means. I was lucky enough to play in it in 2014 and Algeria played very well. It was a dream come true for millions of Algerians and we made history by reaching the last 16 for the first time.

“We played a historic tie against Germany in which we were on the verge of knocking them out. I was very happy and proud to take part in that incredible adventure.

“I’d like to play in it again in 2018, although it will be very difficult to qualify.”

Gernot Rohr: Why Super Eagles won’t play friendlies in London again

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has said that London will not be a choice of venue for their next international friendly.

The German was speaking after their second game in this FIFA window against Burkina Faso was cancelled.

The match was called off, after some Burkina Faso players failed to get British visas. Four days before, Nigeria held Senegal to a 1-1 draw at The Hive Stadium in London.

“Getting UK visas is too complicated, you know,” Rohr told Empowersmag.com.

“I think it’s better to stay in Schengen, in Europe than go to London where the people have problems. Even some players in our team couldn’t come, you know. They didn’t get the visa in time.

“We tried to find another team but it was too late.

“We had one very good game against a Senegal team that was so strong, so powerful, we learned a lot. Now we look forwards to our next games.

“The second game, between us, I could see everybody.

“Some players need to play because they don’t play all the time at their clubs. It was an opportunity for them.”

REVEALED: How I got my football breakthrough – Wilfred Ndidi

Leicester City and Nigeria midfielder, Wilfred Ndidi, has recounted the moment that paved the way  and carve a breakthrough for a career in football for him.

The Super Eagles star completed a £17 million move from Genk to Leicester City in January and has gone on to put up some fine displays in England.

However, Ndidi says he could have easily been doing something else, after his father insisted he faced his books.

He also revealed that he was the only one of 500 boys to be invited for a trial at Genk, which sent scouts to watch a Nigerian football tournament.

“I didn’t score [to impress Genk], I was actually playing in central defence,” Ndidi told Goal.

“I was told not to play long balls, so I just made a one-two and another one-two and then I gave a pass, made an assist.

“It was important because we were an academy, we played a team from the Nigerian Premier League [and we were only an academy], 3SC Shooting Stars, who were winning 1-0. I gave that pass and it made it 1-1.

“I was the only one selected out of 40 teams, 500 players. I had to go and do trials in Genk after that. Then I did the trials in Genk, After a year, they gave me a contract.

“It was difficult [coming to Europe] but I stayed with a family who tried to make me feel like I was at home. It was the time of the trial. So when I came home every day I felt like part of the family, it felt like home and made it easier.”
