Gov Umahi Distributes 18 Prado Jeeps Worth N279m To 18 Traditional Rulers

Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has distributed 18 Prado Jeeps worth N279 million to 18 traditional rulers in the state.

The governor, who made the announcement during the distribution at Government House, Abakaliki on Saturday, said that about 80 traditional rulers in the state would benefit from the largesse.

He appealed to traditional rulers who have not collected their Jeep to be patient or indicate the vehicles of their choices for money to be provided to buy them.

“The Prado Jeeps cost N11.5 million each when we assumed office, but currently they cost N25 million each and they are scarce. We have made the necessary commitment to the supplier as the vehicles might not even be purchased at that amount in 2017,” he said.

Trouble? FIFA Tells NFF, Return Cash You Can't Account For

World football governing body FIFA has warned the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to refund any cash paid to them for football development they could not account for.

This followed a rash of queries raised by FIFA over the $801,229 development grant they paid the NFF. The review was done between August 16 to 18, 2016.The audit by PricewaterhouseCoppers (PwC) said the money was spent without supporting documentation, like receipts, invoices and contracts.

FIFA has therefore warned that if the NFF could not provide adequate supporting documentation for the disbursements, it should make refund on sums unaccounted for. They also expressed displeasure with the unrestrained practice of cash payments, which they maintained should have been greatly minimized.

Shina Peters Younger Brother Drags His Name On The Pages Of Newspaper Again

Not just a few believe that Shina Peters and his brother, Yomi, do not have a cordial relationship. And to buttress this,  Yomi  said that the last time he saw his brother, Shina, was about four years ago and they have spoken only once since then.

The juju singer relocated to America many years ago and when asked why he left the shores of Nigeria, he claimed it was his brother that called him an armed robber.

“I relocated to the United States because I had a clash with my brother over our father’s property and he called me an armed robber on the pages of newspaper. I was so mad and we fought. I took our fight to the radio and television to talk about it and he had to leave Nigeria because of that. The fight was very tough. I told him that he could only run to heaven, so I travelled to America to meet him and we started our fight again. At the end of the day, God took the glory. I made sure I let everyone know that my brother lied against me. That lie really affected me and when I got to American embassy, they asked me some questions about it. Luckily for me, instead of such news destroying me, it helped me and I was given multiple visa because they pitied me and they were glad that I fought to remove the stain on my name,” he said.

Dogara Denies Affiliation With Ibori

Our attention has been drawn to a statement credited to Senator Peter Nwaoboshi who was reportedly quoted as saying that former Delta state governor, James Ibori, supported the emergence of Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara as Speaker of the House of Representatives.

We have watched the video clip and noticed that there is no where the Distinguished Senator mentioned Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara by name. However, reports published in both online and print media insinuated that senator Peter Nwaoboshi referred to Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara.

For the record, we want to state that the Rt. Hon. Speaker was elected by the votes of members of the House of Representatives. There may well be silent supporters and well wishers of the Honourable Speaker from far and near, some of whom he may not be aware of.

David Moyes May Stop Anichebe From Eagles Friendlies

Super Eagles’ coach Gernot Rohr is reported to have compiled names of Europe-based players that he wants to bring back into the fold for the forthcoming January friendlies with Cote d’Ivoire and Senegal. Moyes says it shows how well he has done since heading to Wearside and reviving his career. Don’t worry, though, Sunderland fans, Anichebe won’t be leaving the relegation scrap.

 Nigeria failed to qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations and their forthcoming friendly games fall outside of the international calendar, which means even if Anichebe is selected, they can’t demand his release and Sunderland don’t have to release him for duty.

Moyes said: “Victor would love to play for Nigeria, I’m sure, but not now! “Nigeria have good players and a good squad. It shows how well he is doing, though. You would be very hard placed to replace him given the quality he has shown.”
