1. Fate of Nigeria’s football rests on Oliseh
The Nigerian Football Federation has pinned its hopes solely on Sunday Oliseh.
They say ‘don’t put all your eggs in a basket’ but the NFF may have just done that.
NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, appears to be in love with him, with these words- “He is not just a coach, he is a manager. He manages the confidence of the players.”
2. The sweeping lawmaker(s)
No money, no work. Workers go on strike, masters do the work.
This is the story of the workers in the Osun state House of Assembly, who have absconded from work.
Since the state government is unable to pay their wages, they have decided to leave the work for state’s lawmakers.
3. Don’t scam Amnesty members of their N65K
Possibly speaking from experience, the Amnesty Programme coordinator, has issued a strict warning.
Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh (retd.), has instructed Banks paying out the N65,000 allowances, to not cheat the amnesty members.
According to Boroh, it is not going to be business as usual.
4. To Buhari, change is not just a word
The APC ‘Change’ mantra may seem like just another meaningless word in the Nigerian political vocabulary.
But President Buhari says it is not just a slogan.
5. Mr. Speaker, they played a caller tune, ‘My Sweetie, my lover’
Nigerians are fed up with unsolicited promotions and caller-tunes… and their lawmakers are fighting for them.
“Mr. Speaker, they played a caller tune, ‘My Sweetie, my lover'”, Ali Madaki, who championed the motion, said at the House of Representatives.
“This is illegal and it must stop”, another lawmaker, Tajudeen Yusuf, said.
6. APC chieftain believes Buhari has embarrassed the party
Due to President Buhari’s delay in appointing Ministers, some of his party members feel embarrassed.
Party chieftain, Paul Ikonne, says; “PDP people and those that didn’t believe in the APC are just mocking us but we are not disturbed”.
Mr Ikonne, forget the National Assembly debacle of July, keep feeling mocked by President Buhari’s lack of ministerial appointments.
7. Sit-tight African Presidents unhappy with Obama
Life Presidents, Yoweri Museveni of Uganda, and Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, are lashing out on President Barack Obama for criticising them.
The pair can’t seem to see anything wrong with the fact that they have been President’s forever.
Consequently, these sit-tight bedfellows have no apology for their sit-tightedness.
