Labour Yields To Fg’s Pressure, May Call Off Strike Monday

The organised labour may call off Monday the strike action it embarked upon last Thursday, THISDAY learnt last night. A top government official who did not want to be named said this followed talks between Federal Government officials and labour leaders at the weekend. He disclosed that organised labour might announce the suspension of the strike on Monday ahead of the tripartite committee meeting scheduled to hold on October 4.

It was gathered that labour leaders, which insisted on guarantees that Thursday’s meeting will be used to strike a deal on the new minimum wage, were prevailed upon to soft-pedal to allow the committee to conclude action on the matter.

The decision to call off the strike might not be unconnected with the intervention of the Presidency on Thursday through the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, who tried to persuade labour leaders to end the strike.

At the meeting of the chief of staff with the leadership of the organised labour on Thursday at the State House, Abuja, the Presidency pleaded with labour to end the strike, which has affected economic activities in different parts of the country.

After the meeting, President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, told journalists that the meeting was fruitful. Wabba promised that the meeting’s outcome would be tabled before relevant organs of the organised labour to determine the next line of action.

According to him, the federal government, through the chief of staff, had made a promise to the group that their agitations would be addressed. However, Wabba failed to disclose the nature of the promise made by Kyari.

“The Chief of Staff tried to give us details of government position which we will have to go and convey to our members and then we can revert back to him,” Wabba had said.

But on Friday, Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in a statement, said the federal government was working assiduously to ensure the strike was called off.

“The Presidency wishes to assure that the federal government is taking every step necessary to get the unions to call off the strike,” Shehu said.

He said the organised labour had accepted the federal government’s demand to reconvene the tripartite committee meeting on the proposed new national minimum wage.

According to him, the meeting between the leadership of labour and representatives of various employers of labour, including the federal and state governments, has been rescheduled to reconvene on October 4.

He also explained the tripartite nature of the meeting, saying it is so called because it is made up of representatives of the public sector, that is, federal and state governments, as well as the private sector, which he said comprised the largest private employer group, the Nigeria Employers Consultative Association (NECA).

Shehu listed other members of the body to include the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA), and Nigerian Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMES).

Various labour unions, particularly in the public sector, had on Thursday mobilised their members to embark on a warning strike action following the breakdown in negotiations on a new national minimum wage between the unions and the federal government. The organised labour had demanded an upward review of the current N18, 000 monthly minimum wage to N65, 500 across board.

But THISDAY learnt that at the meeting of the Tripartite Committee on the new National Minimum Wage, chaired by former Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Ama Pepple, the organised private sector had proposed N25, 000 as its next minimum wage while other unions in the public sector insisted that the least they could accept from the federal government would be N43, 000.

While the private sector and the labour unions have come up with proposals on the next minimum wage, the federa

The Bishop and the idol

Too Strange! Rings, Old Pennies, Watches, Other Items Found Inside A Goat's Intestine In Cross River (Photo)

The items found inside a goat's intestine
Goats are known to feed on grasses and at times foods eaten by human beings but a goat  in Ajere, Ekori in Cross River, has decided to feed on something else other than the natural meals meant for it. 
The goat was alleged to have eaten up metallic objects including wedding rings, old pennies (money spent in the old days), wristwatches and other times. 
Many never noticed the odd way of the feeding of this goat until it was killed and these things were found in its intestines. 
Many people have said the goat is not an ordinary goat. Some even said the goat should not be eaten by anybody as it is supernatural as they believe the goat has put many families in agony with many marriages broken.

Ronaldo given two-year jail sentence

According to Spanish publication Marca, Ronaldo has been found guilty of committing four years of tax fraud which reached a total of €14,768,897.
While the representatives of the five-time Ballon d'Or winner reiterated his innocence of the allegations, they have now accepted the hefty fine and the two-year prison sentence.
The captain of the Portugal national team officially admitted the four charges of fraud and agreed to the abovementioned settlement, after initially seeing a £12.9m (R220m) offer rejected by the Spanish authorities last year.
However, Ronaldo won't be facing any time behind bars as Spanish tax law allows first-time offenders with no previous criminal record to have a suspended sentence, bearing the misdemeanour is not repeated.
Reports in Spain have been rife that the case was a huge driving factor behind his recent exit from Real Madrid.

Osun rerun: You are an uninformed political novice – APC fires Davido

The All Progressives Congress, APC, in the United Kingdom has slammed Nigerian musician, David Adeleke, also known as Davido for raising the alarm over an alleged plans by the party to rig today’s Osun State governorship rerun election.
Davido yesterday had claimed via tweet that the: “APC already planning to rig tomorrow’s (today) rerun! Enough is Enough man! They’re ready to do ANYTHING AND I MEAN ANYTHING TO STAY IN POWER AND SUFFER THE OSUN PEOPLE FOR ANOTHER 4 YEARS! PLEASE SHARE! @inecnigeria @USEmbassyAbuja @OfficialPDPNig”
The musician, who has been a strong member of the campaign team of Ademola Adeleke, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for the governorship election, also shared a sheet, which listed the total number of registered voters in the polling units where the rerun will take place today, saying there was an uncovered plot by APC to rig the return with 812 votes
But in a counter-tweet, the APC UK described Davido as an uninformed political novice whose ‘pay grade’ was lower than the issues at stake; hence, should be ignored by the public.
Retweeting Davido’s post, the APC UK wrote on its verified Twitter handle: “Fellow Nigerians.
“Please IGNORE the #FakeNews below from the political novice. He’s uninformed and too inexperienced to dabble into such issues. The issue at hand is way above and beyond his ‘pay grade’.
“Thank you. @inecnigeria @OfficialAPCNg @apcyouthomoodua @PoliceNG”

Court orders APC to conduct fresh election within 30 days

The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday ordered All Progressives Congress (APC) to conduct fresh elections for the office of National Organising Secretary (NOS) within 30 days.
Justice Nnamdi Dimgba gave the order in a judgment on a suit filed by Sen. Osita Izunaso, the plaintiff and a contestant for the office of NOS in the recent APC elective convention.
Izunaso had asked the court to determine whether the election into the office of National Organising Secretary of APC was marred by violence leading to the disenfranchisement of delegates from some states.
He further wanted the court to ascertain whether as a result of the disenfranchisement of some delegates, APC was right in declaring Mr Emma Ibediro winner of the election since it was inconclusive.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), APC and Ibediro were named as defendants in the matter.
Izunaso told the court that some thugs loyal to Ibediro, numbering up to 100, disrupted the election into the office.
He said that they broke the ballot box making it impossible for votes of delegates from Jigawa, Adamawa, Anambra, Abia and Imo to be counted thereby rendering the election inconclusive.
He claimed that if the votes of those delegates were counted, they would have bridged the 290 vote margin which Ibediro defeated him with.
According to Izunaso, APC erred by going ahead to announce Ibediro as winner of the election in spite of the violence, thuggery and irregularities recorded.
The court agreed that exhibits before it proved that the election was marred by violence and thuggery, irregularities and non-compliance with the provisions of the constitution.
It further agreed that the election did not follow the Electoral Act and the guidelines made by the party for the convention.
The court further noted that the defendants had not presented an effective defence to the claims made by the plaintiff, and as such, it was bound by the evidence before it.
On the allegations that the thugs acted on the authority of Ibediro, Dimgba said it was not clear on whose authority the thugs acted but that what was clear was that their actions disrupted the election.
The court also said that INEC failed in its duty as an election monitor, adding that its dereliction of duty was evident in its monitoring report.
“In the report, INEC said that the elections were conducted in line with guidelines of the 2018 APC elective convention and so it failed in its monitoring function with respect to election into the office of the NOS”.
He, therefore, ordered that APC should within 30 days, pursuant to the plaintiffs' alternative reliefs, conduct a fresh election for the five states that were disenfranchised.
He also ordered INEC to monitor the repeat election as the body empowered to monitor the smooth conduct of elections in the country.
According to him, the duty of officers of the commission as election monitors is not to entertain themselves but to ensure that the elections comply with provisions of the law.
Izunaso had asked the court to declare him winner of the post of NOS but the court was of the view that while his complaints were well founded, it was better to order fresh elections in the affected states. (NAN)

Arsenal vs Watford Preview | Latest Team News | Expected Line-Up | Predicted Score

Arsenal will be hoping to make it five consecutive Premier League victories in a row when we take on Watford at the Emirates Stadium this afternoon.

We secured our fourth league victory – and sixth in all competitions – with a 2-0 win over Everton last weekend to move up to sixth in the table and we could find ourselves in the top four with a win today if other results go our way.

Unai Emery seems to be getting his ideas across to the players after a slow start and we booked our place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup with a 3-1 win over Brentford in midweek so the players should be in confident mood heading in to this game.

However, we’ll face a dangerous Watford side who’ve began the season in excellent form as they currently sit fourth in the table having taken 13 points from their six games so far, so this won’t be an easy task.

The Hornets will also be looking to bounce back after their penalty shoot-out defeat to Tottenham in midweek following a 2-2 draw while they’ve only taken one point from their last two league games so Javi Garcia will be hoping to get back to winning ways.

Team news
Arsenal have been handed a boost as Sokratis Papastathopoulos will return after recovering from a dead leg that forced him off against Everton but Emile Smith Rowe is a doubt after suffering a hip problem in midweek.

Laurent Koscielny is working his way back from Achilles surgery but isn’t due back until November so he remains on the sidelines along with Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Dinos Mavropanos.

Emery is expected to recall a number of players with the likes of Petr Cech, Hector Bellerin, Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette coming in after being rested in midweek.

Watford have been success with their appeal over the red card shown to Christian Kabasele against Tottenham on Wednesday night so the defender is available for selection today.

Troy Deeney is also available after recovering from a minor knock, however, Daryl Janmaat has been ruled out for six weeks with a knee injury.

Expected line-ups

Predicted Score
Arsenal 2-1 Watford: We’ve won eight of our last 10 league games against Watford and the Hornets have lost 15 of their last 16 away games to the ‘big 6’ so the stats point to a home win. I do think Watford will give us a tough match this afternoon but our key players will be well rested and we should have enough to edge this game to secure a vital three points.

Osun rerun: What Ambode said about Oyetola’s victory

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State, on Friday congratulated the Governor-Elect of Osun State, Mr Adegboyega Oyetola, for winning the keenly contested governorship election in the state.
Ambode, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Habib Aruna, said it was a well-deserved victory.
He said the people of Osun had made a choice to vote for continuity and experience, which Oyetola represents.
Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was declared as winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at the end of Thursday’s supplementary election in six wards.
He polled a total of 255,505 votes to defeat his closest rival and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sen. Ademola Adeleke, who polled 255,023 votes.
Ambode congratulated the APC for yet another victory, saying it was a confirmation that the people still had confidence in the programmes and policies of the party.
He also commended the people of Osun for comporting themselves during the exercise.
Ambode said that despite the inconclusive election on Sept. 22, voters defied the heavy downpour to come out en masse to exercise their franchise during the supplementary election.
“The election has been deservedly won. The good people of Osun have chosen quality continuity over uncertainty.
“I have no doubt in my mind that the Governor-Elect will bring his wealth of experience to bear and continue with the good works of Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, call for unity and take Osun to greater heights,” Ambode said.
He also urged those aggrieved with the result to channel their grievances to the appropriate quarters, rather than resort to self help.

Buhari "If I win the next election and I survive the next four years, I will do better

President Muhammadu Buhari has vowed that he'll consolidate on the achievements of his first term in office and do better as the country's leader if he wins re-election in the 2019 presidential election and survives the next four years.

The 75-year-old made this promise while addressing Nigerians based in the United States and Canada, as part of his trip to New York for the 73rd United Nations General Assembly.
While commending his administration for fulfilling campaign promises to boost the economy, fight insecurity and champion a campaign against corruption, the president also noted that there's more to be done.
"If I win the next election and I survive the next four years, I will do better," he said.
The president made this remark while talking about why Nigerians perceive him to be too slow in dealing with issues. According to him, he's committed to shedding his military skin to allow for democratic processes to take due course.
Buhari preaches world peace and security

When he addressed world leaders on Tuesday, September 25, 2018, President Buhari preached for world peace, highlighting major pressure points around the world where peace should be negotiated. He called on the international community to strengthen its resolve to combat ethnic and religious cleansing everywhere in the world.
President Buhari also condemned the illicit flow of funds across national boundaries, noting that it has huge negative impact on the stability, peace, and economic prospects of millions in developing countries.
"Corruption significantly deprives national Governments of resources to provide meaningful livelihoods to their populations who are predominantly youths, thus giving rise to more irregular migration," he said.
He urged all countries of the world to work together to achieve enduring peace and security.
