President Buhari received the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, in the state House, Abuja today August 31.


Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who is also a pastor in RCCG and the Chief of Staff to President Buhari, Ibrahim Gambari, were also on hand to receive the clergyman in the statehouse.

Adeboye's visit comes amidst the controversy generated by the newly signed CAMA law that enables the Federal government to remove and replace the board of trustees of any church

While some clergymen have thrown their weight behind the new law, others like Bishop David Oyedepo and Apostle Suleman have come out to vehemently oppose it.

Adeboye is yet to publicly comment on the new law.

COVID-19: Presidential Task Force warns against hasty reopening of schools


                            COVID-19: Presidential Task Force warns against hasty reopening of schools

The Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 in Nigeria has warned states against rushing to reopen schools saying such action have escalated COVID-19 management situation in some other countries.


Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and Chairman of the PTF, Boss Mustapha, speaking on Monday August 31 in Abuja said it would be in the best interest of Nigeria to stick to it's slow phased easing of lockdown rules because it was effective.

 “It is in the above context that the PTF appreciates the on-going calls for re-opening of the education sector and indeed some sub-nationals are already making preparations for such.' Boss Mustapha said.

“Whilst the PTF does not discourage making such preparations, we need to be guided by experiences from countries such as Germany, France, the United States and the UK where opening of schools in some cities led to an increase in confirmed cases and fatalities.”


He also said more sectors of the economy may soon be reopened, and that the PTF would present its recommendations to President Muhammadu Buhari this week, which will determine the next phase in the national response.


According to Boss, the last three weeks had shown a slowdown in the number of confirmed Coronavirus cases in the country, as in the last four months of testing, the lowest daily figure of confirmed cases (138) was reported on Sunday August 30th.

Mariah Carey reveals she felt ‘extremely uncomfortable’ during Ellen DeGeneres interview pushing her to confirm pregnancy


Mariah Carey reveals she felt ?extremely uncomfortable? during Ellen DeGeneres interview pushing her to confirm pregnancy

Grammy award winning singer, Mariah Carey, has recalled how she felt ‘extremely uncomfortable’ during a 2008 interview with Ellen DeGeneres in which the talk show host forced her to confirm she was pregnant.  


Back then, Mariah appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show amid speculation she was expecting a baby with then-husband Nick Cannon.  


During the interview, Mariah said that she ‘didn’t want to discuss’ the rumours but Ellen then presented her with champagne so they could ‘toast’ to her not being pregnant.  


When Ellen noticed that the Grammy-winning singer pretended to sip the alcohol, she exclaimed: ‘You are pregnant!’ 


According to Mariah that incident was uncalled for even though Mariah at the time was indeed expecting a baby.  Sadly, she miscarried shortly after. 


Reflecting on the interview now, Mariah told Vulture: ‘I was extremely uncomfortable with that moment is all I can say. And I really have had a hard time grappling with the aftermath.’  


Explaining why she was reluctant to share the news on the Ellen show, Mariah added: ‘I wasn’t ready to tell anyone because I had had a miscarriage.’  


Mariah three years later welcomed twins Moroccan and Monroe, now nine, with ex-husband Nick in 2011. 


Mariah’s comments come weeks after Ellen's show was accused of having a toxic environment behind the scenes. 


She then referred to the scrutiny currently surrounding Ellen and stated: 

‘I don’t want to throw anyone that’s already being thrown under any proverbial bus, but I didn’t enjoy that moment.’  ‘[There’s] an empathy that can be applied to those moments that I would have liked to have been implemented. But what am I supposed to do? It’s like, [sings] “What are you going to do?”’ Mariah added.

Drogba's election team said on Thursday it expected FIF's decision which claimed he was ineligible to run for the position.


"Drogba's staff isn't surprised by this decision to reject the bid. But we remain unfazed. We will react to conform to the texts which surround this election," Mahamadou Sangare, a member of Drogba's team, told AFP.

Now FIFA has waded in.

"We request the suspension of all action in relation to the election process until further notice," a documen released by FIFA, dated August 27, 2020 and sent to FIF said.

Drogba is standing against FIF's former third vice-president Idriss Diallo, as well as the current vice-president of the national body and president of the League Sory Diabate.


Trump could start a civil war by not leaving the White House if he’s beaten by Joe Biden - Veteran filmmaker Spike Lee


Trump could start a civil war by not leaving the White House if he?s beaten by Joe Biden - Veteran filmmaker Spike Lee

Veteran Hollywood filmmaker, Spike Lee has warned that US president Donald Trump could start up a civil war if he decides not to leave the White House if he's beaten by Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, in the November election.


The director's comments came in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper on Friday August 27.

Lee in the interview said the "hate"that is spread by Trump is "heartbreaking." He spoke about the recent shooting of Jacob Blake, and how "black and brown people" and "black and brown trans people are being shot down like animals."


"We have so much hate in the world – specifically the United States of America," Lee said.

"This guy in the White House, and what he's done, and what this just, level of hate, Anderson, it's heartbreaking," Lee told Cooper.


Lee added that he "prays to God" that Trump is "out" of the White House on November 3.

"I think you talked about this, too. I have — I think there’s going to be shenanigans, some skulduggery that if he loses, particularly in a close vote, he might not want to leave,” Lee said.

“Anderson, are we coming to a civil war? Lee asked.

"The next civil war in the United States of America. I ask you that question.”


Lee admitted he "can't have a restful sleep" because "black and brown people being burdened, shot down, for no other reason because of their skin.


The BlacKkKlansman and Chiraq director's comments comes a week after Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Trump would "investigate ballots" before accepting the result of the November election.

"The president has always said he’ll see what happens and make a determination in the aftermath," McEnany said as she was questioned by reporters about Trump's unsupported claims that mail-in voting will cause fraud.

"It’s the same thing he said last November."

"He wants a free election, a fair election, and he wants confidence in the results of the election, particularly when you have states like Nevada doing mass mail-out voting to their voting rolls," McEnany added.

''His actions on the night were not those of an honourable man"- Prosecutor slams Man. U. captain Harry Maguire's version of his arrest


Greek Prosecution lawyer, Loannis Paradissis, has slammed Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire's account of his arrest on the Greek island of Mykonos.


Maguire was arrested this week after allegedly assaulting police officers while holiday in with friends and family in Greece.


The brawl allegedly started as a result of two Albanian men injecting the defender's sister with a date-rape drug. He was found guilty of charges of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and repeated attempts of bribery after the incident, but claims he is innocent as he thought he was being kidnapped. 



Maguire, who is appealing the suspended prison sentence he was handed, with the backing of Manchester United, sat down with the BBC on Thursday August 28, his first interview since the verdict, and claimed that he was scared for his life as he thought he and his friends were being kidnapped, adding that he tried to run away after being assaulted by a police officer.




Paradissis, however, believes none of Maguire's account, slamming it as 'ridiculous'.
According to the lawyer, Maguire's actions on the night were “not those of an honourable man”.


Speaking to MailOnline, the prosecutor said: “I've seen and read what Maguire said and it's ridiculous and only adds further insult to the harm he caused the policemen he attacked and the Greek justice system as a whole.

“Maguire claims that he feared he was being kidnapped yet his response is to run away and call his agent, leaving behind his fiancee, brothers and sister and childhood friends. Even if you accepted this as true, which I don't, these are not the actions of an honourable man.

“If I was his fiancee or any of the others in the group, I would be very angry with him for leaving them behind and would want him to do some explaining."


Maguire, of course, claimed that his actions were made out of panic, having said in his interview: "They started hitting us, he got one of my hands in the handcuff and he was hitting my leg saying, 'Your career’s over, no more football, you won’t play again'.

"At that point I thought there’s no chance these are police, I don’t know who they are, I tried to run away. I was in that much of a panic, fear. I was scared for my life."


Paradissis, on the other hand, feels that Maguire should have known what was happening to him.

He said: “Maguire claims that when the minibus stopped, he did not know that it was outside a police station. I would urge all people to have a look at Mykonos police station. It is clearly obvious what this place is either during the day or night.

“There are many police cars parked outside it at night, there is a sign stating that it is a police station and there are officers coming in and outside of the building. The only way you would not be able tell if it was not a police station is if you are very drunk.

“Clearly, he was not that drunk, because according to him he was able to fight off a group of men who he thought were kidnappers and try and escape. If he had the clarity of mind to do that then obviously, he would have also been able to see that the minibus had pulled up outside a police station.”


In the initial statement given by Maguire's friends, they said two Albanian men injected the centre-back's sister with a date-rape drug, but Paradissis brought into question as to why the BBC did not press Maguire on how he and his friends ascertained the nationality of the attackers.

“Why didn't the BBC press him further on this,” he said. “How did Maguire and his group know that these men were Albanian? Is the Manchester United captain and those with him experts on Albanian culture and people? Do they speak Albanian?

“In his interview, Maguire makes no reference to Albanians, as his friend did in court and others did in his group? Why is this? Why is their story now that it was simply two men and noting about Albanians? Why did the journalist not question him further about this?”


Maguire also stated in his interview that he will not apologise to the Greek police as he has done nothing wrong.

“Where is our apology for his behaviour? Three policemen were injured and had to be treated at hospital,” Paradissis said.

“A rich man came to Mykonos and thought that he could behave how he wants. He then goes on an international television channel to justify his actions and there is not a single apology to us in anything he says.”


Rebekah Vardy 'files legal papers to force Coleen Rooney to head to court immediately amid their ongoing feud


Rebekah Vardy

Rebekah Vardy has reportedly filed legal papers to drag Coleen Rooney to court 'immediately' amid their ongoing feud.


The shocking move comes after Rebekah came to the conclusion that Coleen, 34, is purposefully 'dragging her heels' and wants her to "put up or shut up" in their legal battle. 


According to The Sun, the session, which will be held later this year, will determine whether the wife of footballer Jamie Vardy was 'libelled' when Coleen accused her Instagram account of leaking stories to the press.


A source told The Sun: 'Things have been rumbling on for ages, and costs ­spiralling too.


'This will mean that a judge can actually get to the crux of the case — and make those involved put up or shut up. It should mean things can finally get moving and dealt with quickly.


'This is a shot across the bows. It effectively says, "Come on, stop mucking about, let’s get on with this".'


The insider added the move would not be want Coleen would have wanted as it puts her on the 'back foot'.  


The publication states Rebekah took the decision as Coleen has so far failed to bring forward a defence to court, with her legal team apparently requesting more time to build a case. 


They added that if a judge finds that Coleen was directly blaming Rebekah for selling the stories, then she will have to head to court and 'prove' her claims and 'back it up' with 'evidence'


The mother of five is suing Coleen Rooney for libel over their online fallout.


The former friends have been at loggerheads since Coleen, the wife of former England striker Wayne, accused Rebekah - who is married to Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy of 'selling stories' about her private life to The Sun publication in 2019, a claim Rebekah vehemently denies.

Piers Morgan calls for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to be stripped of their titles after Meghan hits out at Donald Trump

Piers Morgan has called for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to be stripped of their titles after Meghan hit out at Donald Trump.

The Duchess of Sussex was a surprise guest on Michelle Obama’s When All Women Vote event on Thursday, August 20, and appeared to take a dig at the President ahead of the election, saying: "We all know what’s at stake".

Meghan said: "We vote to honour those who came before us and to protect those that come after us…that's what community is all about and that's specifically what this election is all about.

"We all know what's at stake this year. I know it, I think all of you certainly know it if you are here at this fun event with us.

"You’re just as mobilised and energised to see the change we all need and deserve. This fight is worth fighting and we all need to be out there mobilising to have our voices heard.

"If you aren't part of the solution, you're part of the problem. If you are complacent, you are complicit."

Meghan's comment angered Piers Morgan and he accused her of breaching royal protocol as royals are advised not to give political opinions.

In a tweet on Friday evening, the Good Morning Britain host urged the Queen to remove Harry and Meghan’s titles.

Piers wrote: "The Queen must strip the Sussexes of their titles. They can't remain as royals & spout off about foreign elections in such a brazenly partisan way."

He added: "Last time I checked she's still calling herself the Duchess of Sussex".

Remove Obasanjo and Wike as speakers at our conference- Muslim lawyers tell NBA leadership


Remove Obasanjo and Wike as speakers at our conference- Muslim lawyers tell NBA leadership

The Muslim Lawyers Association of Nigeria has asked the leadership of the Nigerian Bar Association to remove ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo and Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, as speakers at the forthcoming Annual General Conference of the NBA scheduled for August 26 to 29.


This is coming on the heels of the leaderships decision to disinvite Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai from the AGM after some lawyers demanded he be disinvited. The lawyers argue that Governor El-Rufai has been overtime accused of human rights abuses.


The NBA leadership bowed to the pressure from the lawyers and disinvited the governor. Read here. This has however been met with stiff opposition. Members of the Jigawa state chapter and the Bauchi state chapter have threatened to boycott the AGM if the decision to disinvite the governor is not reversed.


In an interview with Punch on Saturday, August 22, the president of the Muslim Lawyers’ Association of Nigeria, Ibrahim Abikan, said his association has objected to having Obasanjo and Wike as speakers at the conference because they are allegedly guilty of the same allegations filed against Governor el-Rufai.


“We insist that if any standard is set for withdrawing el-Rufai, the same should apply to other speakers too. El-Rufai is a public officer and any other person who has the same record of allegations of human rights abuses should also be disqualified. We expect that the same standard should apply to Obasanjo and Wike.

People have started forwarding petitions to me of allegations of human rights abuses and disrespect for the rule of law against Obasanjo and Wike. They have started forwarding it to NBA Conference Planning Committee and the NBA as a body.

Our position is that whoever is going to be speaker should be able to give us quality presentation.” Abikan  said


The immediate past president of MULAN, Funminiyi Adeleke, in a separate interview, also condemned the decision of the association's leadership to disinvite Governor el-Rufai. He argued that Obasanjo and Wike do not have the pedigree to be speakers at the AGM.


“We looked at the parameters upon which el-Rufai was dis-invited. Other speakers on that platform are equally guilty. For instance, Obasanjo is one of the worst abusers of human rights in Nigeria. We know what happened at various times when he was in the military and when he came back as a civilian leader.

He doesn’t have the pedigree to be a speaker.

What of Wike? Wike is the first governor to declare his state as a Christian state, which is an affront to Section 10 of the Nigerian Constitution which states that no state shall adopt a religion as the state religion.

But even when confronted, Wike continues to say that Rivers is a Christian state. He has committed a lot of atrocities – he destroyed mosques, hotels, he did a lot of things and we have a catalogue on them.

Our position is that the NBA should drop Obasanjo and Wike and get any other person because if you dis-invited el-Rufai for disregard for the rule of law, the two other speakers on the platform are equally guilty.” Adeleke said


 Other speakers at the conference with the theme, ‘Step Forward’, include Vice-President Yemi Osibanjo; House of Representatives Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila; Chief Justice of Nigeria, Tanko Muhammad; Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami.

Update: Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire released from Police custody after pleading not guilty over alleged police altercation in Mykonos

Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire has been released after pleading not guilty to charges following an alleged altercation with police while on holiday on the island of Mykonos. 


The 27-year-old England international was released from police custody pending a hearing which will be heard on the island of Syros on Tuesday, August 25. 


Maguire will be represented at the hearing by his legal team, meaning he is free to travel back to Manchester this weekend.


Update: Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire released from Police custody after pleading not guilty over alleged police altercation in Mykonos


A Manchester United statement said: “Following the appearance in court today we note the adjournment of the case to allow the legal team to consider the case file.


“Harry has pleaded not guilty to the charges. It would be inappropriate for the player or club to comment further while the legal process takes its course.”


Maguire was one of three men arrested by police on the island of Mykonos in the early hours of Friday morning, August 21.


Reports said he was involved in an altercation with other British tourists last night. When the officers tried to intervene, three men including the England international allegedly fought back physically and verbally while resisting arrest.


A statement by the Hellenic Police alleged that one of their officers was hit in an altercation with the three men, who later "resisted, pushing and beating" officers when transported to a police station.


"Three foreigners, aged 27, 28 and 29, were arrested today (August 21, 2020) in Mykonos by police officers of the Mykonos police department," the statement read.


"Patrolling police officers in the area of Mykonos intervened and normalised a dispute between citizens, however, three foreigners involved in the incident turned against them, insulting and hitting a police officer with fists.


"The three foreigners were taken to the Mykonos police station, where upon their arrival they strongly resisted, pushing and beating three police officers.


"One of the detainees then tried to offer money so that the trial against them would not be completed. The arrested (men) were taken to the Syros prosecutor's office."

Taylor Swift donates £23,000 to teenager who set up a GoFundMe so she could attend university


Taylor Swift donates ?23,000 to teenager who set up a GoFundMe so she could attend university

Taylor Swift has donated over £23,000 to a teenager who started a GoFundMe appeal so she can go to University.


Vitoria Mario, a Tottenham teenager, wants to become a mathematician. In her online appeal, she explained that despite being offered an unconditional place at the University of Warwick to study mathematics, she could not afford to take it up.

Taylor Swift found her GoFundMe appeal and decided to make a generous donation while leaving a touching message for the teenager.


Taylor wrote to the teen: "Vitoria, I came across your story online and am so inspired by your drive and dedication to turning your dreams into reality. I want to gift you the rest of your goal amount. Good luck with everything you do! Love, Taylor."

Governor El-Rufai reacts to NBA's decision to withdraw his invitation to their annual general meeting



Governor El-Rufai reacts to NBA

Kaduna state governor, Nasir el-Rufai, has reacted to the decision of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), to withdraw an invitation previously extended to him to speak at its annual general meeting.

NBA withdrew the invitation following an outcry by some lawyers who said the governor stands against what the profession represents. 


In a statement released on Thursday August 20, by his spokesperson, Muyiwa Adekeye, Governor el-Rufai described the withdrawal of his invitation as an unfortunate embrace of injustice. He said he will continue to make his voice heard on the things the country needs to do to make progress. 


His statement in part reads

“While the decision about who speaks at its event is clearly the NBA’s, Malam El-Rufai wishes to make clear that he did not seek the platform and is not agitated that he has one less speaking engagement,” the statement read. 

However, the circumstances of the last few days warrant some comments. That a professional organisation has elected to endorse a one-sided narrative on a profound national issue is something that its members may wish to reflect upon.

For an association, whose bread and butter is about justice, to make a ruling based on the stridency of people who lampoon judicial processes against certain individuals without hearing the other side is odd. It bears noting that in its response to pressure, the NBA leadership has signalled an unfortunate embrace of injustice, unfairness, absence of fair hearing and total disregard for the rule of law.”


60-year-old fake doctor treating Coronavirus patients arrested


60-year-old fake doctor treating Coronavirus patients arrested

A 60-year-old fake doctor identified as Charles George has been arrested for treating COVID-19 patients. 


The Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria who confirmed the suspect's arrest on Thursday August 20, said he was apprehended at his one-room apartment at Block 1, Julius Berger Junior Staff Quarters popularly known as Berger Camp in Kubwa, by police detectives from the office of the Commissioner of Police, Federal Capital Territory.


Syringe (for abortion) and kidney dish among others were recovered from the fake doctor who was accused of subjecting his clients to unprofessional medical treatment which “may lead to sudden and unnatural death.”


The police presented a fake letterhead and COVID-19 cure threat SMS which the suspect was allegedly blackmailing his clients with, said in its statement;


"George has been vetted as a regular customer of the FCDA Police Station and Kubwa Area Command Headquarters for several matters in connection with mixed medicine and extortion of his clients since 2016.”


The Deputy Registrar and Head of the Inspectorate Department of the MDCN, Dr. Victor Gbenro on his own part said; 


“The arrest of the suspected fake medical/alternative medicine practitioner, by name Dr. Charles George, at his Kubwa premises is a major breakthrough for the MDCN under the leadership of the Registrar, Dr. Tajudeen Sanusi.

“Acting on an intelligence report from the IG intelligence team, the Inspectorate Department of the MDCN as directed by the registrar effected the successful arrest of the fake doctor, who has been defrauding unsuspecting members of the public and posing as a member of the NCDC COVID-19 team.

“The suspect is alleged to have been practising alternative medicine without registration or licence from the MDCN, which is statutorily mandated to regulate the practice of medical, dental and alternative medicine in Nigeria.

“Investigation revealed that his practice is not known or registered by the FCDA Private Health Facility Registration Agency. The police have commenced further investigation and prosecution of the suspect. This is one among the several efforts of the council at sanitising the medical profession in the country.”
