Fashola Spent A lot On Projects Because He Likes Quality Jobs- APC

The All Progressives Congress in Lagos State has defended former Governor Babatunde Fashola over an allegation that the former governor misappropriated public funds. The APC described the contracts awarded by Fashola while in office as a reflection of his love for quality jobs.

The APC spokesperson in the state, Mr. Joe Igbokwe, in a telephone conversation with a Punch correspondent on Thursday, asked the public to stop castigating Fashola for the amount of money he spent on execution of projects while on office. Igbokwe described the recent criticisms trailing the contracts awarded by the former governor as the handiwork of the opposition.

He said, “Fashola is not a hut builder. So, he built a bridge for N29bn? You can decide to build a bridge for N5bn. Anybody who is interested in standards can build a bridge for N100bn.

“There are grades for everything; it depends on the way you want to look at it. It shows Fashola believes in standards.” Continue.

Kennis Music Didn’t Try To Use Me To Replace Tuface -Joe El

Kennis music act, Joe El has finally cleared the air about a pending rumour that Kennis music headed by Keke Ogungbe signed him to be in form of a replacement of Tuface at Kennis when Tuface left. Joe El said that was far from the truth, and people only like to say what they know nothing about.
He also spoke about people saying he is copying Tuface’s style, saying he has always been like that before he became a fan of Tuface and everyone on earth has a look alike. My look alike is Tuface, he said.

He also described Tuface who would be forty next month, as a demi-god who is humble to a fault. His words to Saturday Beats after the cut;

Soyinka Takes Obasanjo To The Cleaners Again At Globalcom Hosting

Globalcom last night hosted Professor Wole Soyinka in a programme tagged: ‘An evening with Wole Soyinka’. He was later asked to respond to Obasanjo’s assessment of him in the former president’s book titled ‘My Watch’, where he notes that Soyinka is good at hunting and wines but a political illiterate. Soyinka however fired again saying Obasanjo is nothing but a liar and why should the opinion of a liar matter. Hear him;

“Obasanjo is entitled to his opinion. But the question is: ‘Who respects the opinion of a liar? I can spend the whole night proving that he is a liar. Obasanjo was once described by an economist, the late Prof Ojetunji Aboyade, as an economic illiterate. They nearly ‘went into blow’ that night. It was Prof. Mabogunje who separated them. So, if an economic illiterate calls somebody a political illiterate, no problem at all. In ‘ My Watch’, Obasanjo told the first lie when he said he deplored lies. Anybody who said he never plotted to have an unconstitutional third term in office, even as a writer, I need a word to describe him.”

It will be recalled that the former president and the professor have been sworn enemies for some time taking swipes at each other at any given time.

Fayose Appoints 72-Year Old Stark Illiterate As LG Chairman

Oh you were wondering why we called him a stark illiterate? No, it’s not an insult, the man himself confirmed he has never been to school for a day before.

The Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has appointed a 72-year-old illiterate, Pa Olatunde Afolayan, as the caretaker chairman of Moba Local Government Area. Fayose who announced the appointment during the inauguration of Boards, Commissions and Governing Councils in the state said under his regime anyone can be a leader regardless of the level of his or her education. The governor explained further that a professor can only cast one vote, so also an illiterate, which makes them equal under his regime.

“Some of us used them to get to positions and forget these people. In my government, whether you are educated or not, you will get something. The vote of a professor and an illiterate is the same. So, under my administration, those who are not educated can rise to any level they want,” the Governor said.

Can Our Courts Jail Fashola Or Any Governor At That? Etcetera Writes

The APC is now being haunted by the saying, “When you point one finger, there are three fingers pointing back at you.” If it knew, it wouldn’t have accused Goodluck Jonathan of running a very corrupt government. Most times, we forget to listen to the voice of reason that says, “Look in the mirror, brother. You might just be talking about yourself.” It is now clear that the APC focused on the speck in Jonathan’s eye and ignored the log in their own eyes.” 

Who would have thought that just few weeks into a new regime in Lagos State, Fashola would be engulfed with the following accusations – Drilling of just two bore holes with N139m, remodelling and equipping of the official residence of the state’s Chief Judge at N510m, reconstructing of a car park with N640m, spending N300m to relocate cables, N175m to replace the railings of a pedestrian bridge, N220m on the facility management of the Lagos State University College of Medicine, N619m on surface repair of a road, N1.2bn on the construction of an unidentified multi-storey building, N1.6bn on the construction of a 48-bedroom hotel.

Still On Migrants! 71 Die In A Bid To Get Into Austria

People light candles in front of a police station in Eisenstadt, Austria to mourn them

Hungarian police have arrested the driver of a lorry found on an Austrian motorway with the decomposing bodies of more than 70 people inside. The driver has been proven to be a Romanian. Seven smugglers also linked to the lorry had been held by authorities in Hungary.  But the main organisers are still at large, and believed to be in Romania.

The death toll was raised on Friday from initial estimates of 20 to 50 following the discovery of the remains on Thursday morning on Austria’s A4 motorway between Neusiedl and Parndorf. The truck, which had been abandoned on the hard shoulder of the road near Parndorf, had apparently been there since Wednesday. Austrian police said all those on board appeared to have suffocated and died before they entered the country.

Chinese ‘Unicorn Woman’ Grows Gigantic Horn In Middle Of Her Head

An elderly Chinese woman has been dubbed “the unicorn woman” due to an abnormal growth on her head that looks like a large horn. Liang Xiuzhen started growing something that resembled a “black mole” on her head around eight years ago, according to her son Wang Chaojun.

The 87-year-old, was left stunned when two years ago it gave way to a finger-sized horn-like mass. Xiuzhen accidentally “broke” that small horn in February - and her current, much larger, horn - which is currently 13cm long -began growing rapidly in its place.

“Now the horn hurts my mother and prevents her from sleeping. It also bleeds from time to time,” said Chaojun.

Nigerians Will Soon Term The President As Presidents To Only Northerners- APC Leaders

There was an outrage in the ruling All Progressives Congress on Thursday over the announcement of new appointments by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Shocker! PDP Members Are Pretenders &The Party Might Soon Die- Okupe

The Senior Special Assistant to former President Goodluck Jonathan on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, has admitted his fellow PDP party members are pretenders and the party might die soon if nothing is done fast to reform it. According to Okupe, APC has convinced Nigerians to see PDP as a corrupt party which has not helped the party positively. Okupe was one of the greatest critics of President Muhammadu Buhari during the last election campaign and openly lashed out at APC authoritatively telling them they can never rule Nigeria and had always said PDP was the best party and best option for Nigerians.

The former SSA, however took to his Facebook page to disclose this;

“The time has come for the PDP, if it must remain politically relevant, to embark on a total overhaul and reform itself. It must engage Nigerians in a new coalition for the sole purpose of putting our dear country on the path to true, real and the enduring change that will, once and for, all establish us as a major global player, not pretenders that we presently are.

“The PDP must reform lest it dies, God forbids, a painful and insidious death.” Continue....
