I Will probe Amaechi- Wike

The Rivers State Governor-elect, Chief Nyesom Wike, has said he would probe the outgoing governor when he gets into office. He gave this hint while receiving the interim report of the Transition Committee in Port Harcourt yesterday, where he declared that his administration would carry out a forensic audit of all government accounts. Wike says the forensic audit will help him recover funds that might have allegedly been stolen by top officials of the outgoing administration in the state.

“I am not going to be intimidated. The only way we can work together is to check the ills of the past. The right thing must be done. Those who have stolen the resources of the state must be made to account for them. I have the political will to drive the process to its logical conclusion. The massive stealing of government resources was a deliberate attempt to create problems for the incoming administration. All the top officials of Amaechi administration who have refused to cooperate in the interest of Rivers State during the transition period will soon cooperate whether they like it or not. Those who have closed the courts will be the same persons rushing to the courts when we open the courts,” he said.

Do Not Abort Boko Haram Babies, Catholic Bishop Begs

The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria has condemned suggestions by some stakeholders in the country, who have advocated that the pregnancy of some Boko Haram female victims, conceived through rape, should be terminated.

The organisation which condemned the act however says, it will be partly responsible for the upbringing of the children through support mechanisms and crisis pregnancy management centers. According to them, the babies are innocent and should not be killed for the offences of their erring fathers.

Chairman of the Health Committee of CBCN and Auxiliary Bishop of Abuja (Catholic Archdiocese), Most Rev. Anselm Umoren, stated these during a press conference yesterday in Abuja.

“Specifically, it is not tenable, the suggestion that killing the babies conceived through rape by the terrorists, is the most humane action to take in this instance. Since the babies are ignorant and innocent of the crimes – aggression, sexual assault, dehumanisation – against their mothers, it is unethical to punish them for the sins and offences of their erring fathers,” he said.

Some people looked at me funny at the pool about three days ago. They kept starring at me and talking among themselves.

Ifeanyi Uba Please Keep Your Fuel- By Joseph Edgar

Written by Joseph Edgar

Look, me and some very reasonable people are not being carried away by this Andy UBA's hemlock. His decision to release 13 million liters of fuel is nothing but crass betrayal and a childish attempt at populism in the face of imminent disgrace by the incoming government.

We are tired of this kind of symbolism, this is what has put us in this place of global mockery and national helplessness. How many filling stations does Uba have, what is the national fuel usage, he releases 15 days worth of fuel to the Nation and after that what next, we are still faced with the same issues that led to the strike in the first place.

Fuel Scarcity: I Can No Longer Watch Nigerians Suffer- Ubah

Capital Oil and Gas Industries Limited boss, Ifeanyi Ubah this evening released a press statement saying he can no longer watch Nigerians suffer due to fuel scarcity and more dying just because there has not been fuel or diesel to power hospital generators for surgeries. Ubah says it’s a crime against his fatherland to be a part of the sufferings of Nigerians. He has therefore said he will be releasing about 13million litres of the product before dawn. Read his press statement after the cut.

On Saturday 16th May 2015, we received an SMS ordering the suspension of loading activities in all depots from Monday 18th May 2015. We later realized that this directive was as a result of unpaid funds owed to transporters by oil marketers who in turn are owed by the Federal Government. This development has resulted in immense hardship to our fellow country men and women. We believe that a better solution can be pursued towards solving this problem in a way that does not adversely affect our dear citizens.
