Pictures From Expansion And Reconstruction Of The Oshodi-Airport Road

For decades, the stretch of road connecting Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos to Oshodi was a national disgrace.

The road, which is a gateway into the country, offered first time visitors a very uncomplimentary first impression of Nigeria.

From one administration to the other, the road remained in an atrocious condition – one that required urgent attention in order to salvage the nation’s image.

Sadly, the resuscitation of the road, which falls within the purview of the federal government, was completely ignored.

However, in May 2017, and with facilitation by Vice President Yemi Osibanjo, the federal government finally gave the approval for the Lagos State government to commence a total reconstruction of the road.

In the spirit of the regeneration and urbanization of Lagos state by the Ambode-led administration, work begun on the project in September 2017.

The project will see the transformation of the road from 4 lanes to 10 lanes from Oshodi to the International Airport. It would also feature an interchange and flyover that would drop commuters to the Local Airport.

Work is ongoing on the road.

The work is being handled by the construction firm of Hitech Construction Company Limited.

Basketball Superstar Lebron James Lashes Trump For Dividing America

LeBron James, the basketball superstar called out President Donald Trump on Monday night for escalating racial tensions.

“He’s kinda used sports to kinda divide us,” James told CNN’s Don Lemon. “And that’s something that I can’t relate to because I know that sport was the first time I was around someone white.”

Trump has repeatedly slammed professional athletes, some for refusing to visit the White House as has been customary after championships, and others for kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial injustice.

“Sports has never been something that divides people,” said James. “It’s always been something that brings someone together.”
James also said that while racism has always been around, Trump has enabled some of the racists.

“The president in charge now has given people, they don’t care now ― they throw it in your face now,” he said.

Saraki Releases Press Statement On Why He Decamped To PDP


I wish to inform Nigerians that, after extensive consultations, I have decided to take my leave of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

This is not a decision that I have made lightly. If anything at all, I have tarried for so long and did all that was humanly possible, even in the face of great provocation, ridicule and flagrant persecution, to give opportunity for peace, reconciliation and harmonious existence.

Perhaps, more significantly, I am mindful of the fact that I carry on my shoulder a great responsibility for thousands of my supporters, political associates and friends, who have trusted in my leadership and have attached their political fortunes to mine. However, it is after an extensive consultation with all the important stakeholders that we have come to this difficult but inevitable decision to pitch our political tent elsewhere; where we could enjoy greater sense of belonging and where the interests of the greatest number of our Nigerians would be best served.

While I take full responsibility for this decision, I will like to emphasise that it is a decision that has been inescapably imposed on me by certain elements and forces within the APC who have ensured that the minimum conditions for peace, cooperation, inclusion and a general sense of belonging did not exist.

They have done everything to ensure that the basic rules of party administration, which should promote harmonious relations among the various elements within the party were blatantly disregarded. All governance principles which were required for a healthy functioning of the party and the government were deliberately violated or undermined. And all entreaties for justice, equity and fairness as basic precondition for peace and unity, not only within the party, but also the country at large, were simply ignored, or employed as additional pretext for further exclusion.

The experience of my people and associates in the past three years is that they have suffered alienation and have been treated as outsiders in their own party. Thus, many have become disaffected and disenchanted. At the same time, opportunities to seek redress and correct these anomalies were deliberately blocked as a government-within-a-government had formed an impregnable wall and left in the cold, everyone else who was not recognized as “one of us”. This is why my people, like all self-respecting people would do, decided to seek accommodation elsewhere.

I have had the privilege to lead the Nigerian legislature in the past three years as the President of the Senate and the Chairman of the National Assembly. The framers of our constitution envisage a degree of benign tension among the three arms of government if the principle of checks and balances must continue to serve as the building block of our democracy. In my role as the head of the legislature, and a leader of the party, I have ensured that this necessary tension did not escalate at any time in such a way that it could encumber Executive function or correspondingly, undermine the independence of the legislature. Over the years, I have made great efforts in the overall interest of the country, and in spite of my personal predicament, to manage situations that would otherwise have resulted in unsavoury consequences for the government and the administration. My colleagues in the Senate will bear testimony to this.

However, what we have seen is a situation whereby every dissent from the legislature was framed as an affront on the executive or as part of an agenda to undermine the government itself. The populist notion of anti-corruption became a ready weapon for silencing any form of dissent and for framing even principled objection as “corruption fighting back”. Persistent onslaught against the legislature and open incitement of the people against their own representatives became a default argument in defence of any short-coming of the government in a manner that betrays all too easily, a certain contempt for the Constitution itself or even the democracy that it is meant to serve.

Unfortunately, the self-serving gulf that has been created between the leadership of the two critical arms of government based on distrust and mutual suspicion has made any form of constructive engagement impossible. Therefore, anything short of a slavish surrender in a way that reduces the legislature to a mere rubber stamp would not have been sufficient in procuring the kind of rapprochement that was desired in the interest of all. But I have no doubt in my mind, that to surrender this way is to be complicit in the subversion of the institution that remains the very bastion of our democracy. I am a democrat. And I believe that anyone who lays even the most basic claim to being a democrat will not accept peace on those terms; which seeks to compromise the very basis of our existence as the parliament of the people.

The recent weeks have witnessed a rather unusual attempts to engage with some of these most critical issues at stake. Unfortunately, the discord has been allowed to fester unaddressed for too long, with dire consequences for the ultimate objective of delivering the common good and achieving peace and unity in our country. Any hope of reconciliation at this point was therefore very slim indeed. Most of the horses had bolted from the stable.

The emergence of a new national party executives a few weeks ago held out some hopes, however slender. The new party chairman has swung into action and did his best alongside some of the Governors of APC and His Excellency, the Vice President. I thank them for all their great efforts to save the day and achieve reconciliation. Even though I thought these efforts were coming late in the day, but seeing the genuine commitment of these gentlemen, I began to think that perhaps it was still possible to reconsider the situation.

However, as I have realized all along, there are some others in the party leadership hierarchy, who did not think dialogue was the way forward and therefore chose to play the fifth columnists. These individuals went to work and ensured that they scuttled the great efforts and the good intentions of these aforementioned leaders of the party. Perhaps, had these divisive forces not thrown the cogs in the wheel at the last minutes, and in a manner that made it impossible to sustain any trust in the process, the story today would have been different.

For me, I leave all that behind me. Today, I start as I return to the party where I began my political journey, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

When we left the PDP to join the then nascent coalition of All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2014, we left in a quest for justice, equity and inclusion; the fundamental principles on which the PDP was originally built but which it had deviated from. We were attracted to the APC by its promise of change. We fought hard along with others and defeated the PDP.

In retrospect, it is now evident that the PDP has learnt more from its defeat than the APC has learnt from its victory. The PDP that we return to is now a party that has learnt its lessons the hard way and have realized that no member of the party should be taken for granted; a party that has realized that inclusion, justice and equity are basic precondition for peace; a party that has realized that never again can the people of Nigeria be taken for granted.

I am excited by the new efforts, which seeks to build the reborn PDP on the core principles of promoting democratic values; internal democracy; accountability; inclusion and national competitiveness; genuine commitment to restructuring and devolution of powers; and an abiding belief in zoning of political and elective offices as an inevitable strategy for managing our rich diversity as a people of one great indivisible nation called Nigeria.

What we have all agreed is that a deep commitment to these ideals were not only a demonstration of our patriotism but also a matter of enlightened self-interest, believing that our very survival as political elites of this country will depend on our ability to earn the trust of our people and in making them believe that, more than anything else, we are committed to serving the people.

What the experience of the last three years have taught us is that the most important task that we face as a country is how to reunite our people. Never before had so many people in so many parts of our country felt so alienated from their Nigerianness. Therefore, we understand that the greatest task before us is to reunite the county and give everyone a sense of belonging regardless of region or religion.

Every Nigerian must have an instinctive confidence that he or she will be treated with justice and equity in any part of the country regardless of the language they speak or how they worship God. This is the great task that trumps all. Unless we are able to achieve this, all other claim to progress no matter how defined, would remain unsustainable.

This is the task that I am committing myself to and I believe that it is in this PDP, that I will have the opportunity to play my part.  It is my hope that the APC will respect the choice that I have made as my democratic right, and understand that even though we will now occupy a different political space, we do not necessarily become enemies unto one another.

Thank you.

Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, CON
President of the Senate

Morocco To Host 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations After Cameroon Axing - Ahmed Shobier

Morocco will be handed the last minute right to host the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON), former Egypt international goalkeeper Ahmed Shobier has revealed.
The claim by the legendary shot stopper means Cameroon will be stripped of the right to host the tournament as a damning report casts doubts over the country's preparedness to host the competition.
Cameroon was already struggling to host the competition of 16 countries but the expansion of the tournament to 24 teams is bound to exacerbate their problems of the construction of new stadia.
The 2019 African Cup of Nations is the first of its kind to witness the presence of 24 teams in the competition with the first being the summer of next year.
Last year when the issue of Cameroon's problems surfaced with Morocco accused of angling to take over the competition, the North African country pledged its allegiance to helping Cameroon host a successful expanded competition.
But with the progress of work said to have overly delayed, CAF is likely to consider other options with Morocco very high on the agenda according to Shobeir.

Buhari To Vie For ECOWAS Chairmanship

Barring any last-minute change in plans, President Muhammadu Buhari will vie for the chairmanship of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in Lome, Togo, on Tuesday, TheCable can report.

A new chairman will succeed President Faure Gnassingbe of Togo at the end of the 53rd Ordinary Session of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government.

Buhari departed Abuja on Sunday for Lome in company with a team of two governors and five ministers.

Also in the delegation are Babagana Monguno, the national security adviser (NSA); Abayomi Olonisakin, chief of defence staff; Ahmed Abubakar, the DG of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA); and Godwin Emefiele, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

Diplomatic sources told TheCable that Buhari was prevailed upon Monday night by some West African countries to go for the position.

Other countries that initially showed interested in the chairmanship are Ghana, Sierra Leone and Cape Verde.

A diplomatic told TheCable: “At a dinner on Monday night, some of the West African diplomats had a long discussion with Buhari and persuaded him to run.”

TheCable had learnt at the weekend that the president was interested in the position, but senior government officials denied knowledge of it.

It is still unclear if President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana will be throwing his hat in the ring.

Omoshalewa Benson: Tales of a Lagos Babe - Episode 13 [Lets Dance]

We chose Jackie..Yeah Jackie Appiah. I don’t particularly watch Ghanian movies, well, I do sometimes. The last I saw had John Dumelo doing a girl naked, it was shot in such a way his bum was captured moving ‘up’ and ‘down’. There were also boobs to show and more sex scenes than one would see in a Hollywood settings.

To be frank, I kind of liked that Jackie was chosen. After the meeting, she invited us all to a party in a club…..it was a party of one of the Ghanaian celebrities. Mr. Oga thought that it would be nice for networking and PR for the film festival, so we all had no choice than to go. She also would tag along; I wonder what her department sent her here for. Ha! I haven’t said…Lydia’s big gist…she was here, I mean the girl from the canteen that had been rumoured to be Mr. Oga’s girlfriend. Lydia told me she had seen her come out of Oga’s room and she looked suspicious. It made me start to wonder if Lydia was right and if they were really dating. It kind of broke my heart but I convinced myself not to jump into conclusions.
Lydia and I did not have what to wear to the party so we went out of the hotel to buy. First thing I noticed about Ghana is how clean the streets are and the people were not as black as I thought. We bought our party wears and returned to the hotel.

Ehn ehn, Shalewa, wait sef! You never give me gist about you and Oga Dan o, una don start?” That was Lydia poke nosing as usual.

“Start wetin?” I eyed her playfully. She slapped my arms and went on “talk na”
“Hmm! I still dey study am”

She started to laugh “e resemble book, abeg hold him before another girl sweeps him away o, don’t you know he is one of the eligible bachelors in Lagos?”

I started to laugh as I collapsed on the bed. “Ehn ehn, what will you now say about Mr. Williams?” I asked in an attempt to hear more gists about him. “That one…”She rolled her eyes “that one go marry sha?”

She started to unwrap the ‘kenken’ we bought from our trip away from the hotel. I got up to bring out the disposable plate we had also bought. “I heard this thing make sense die…”
I smiled. We began to eat in silence. I was about to ask Lydia if she had a boyfriend when I heard a knock on my hotel door.

I was scared it may be Femi. I didn’t want to arouse any unnecessary suspicion. Radio katanga was in the radar. I wiped my palm with a serviette and walked towards the door. I looked through the peep hole and saw that it was Daniel. I breathed relief and opened the door.

“Hi!” I smiled sheepishly
“Hey!” I let him in and shut the door. Lydia wiped her palms and got up immediately “good day Sir”

“Lydia baby, how na?”

“Oga I dey o” she turned to me “Shally baby, we go see later” she winked.

Daniel had seen her but she didn’t care. Lydia was a case study. Daniel hugged me as soon as she shut the door. I stayed in his arms a while longer than I should have; only because I was doing a comparism, in his arms, it felt like a cuddle, in Femi’s arms, I felt safe, protected. I stopped thinking and came out of his embrace. He pulled me towards the bed and we laid beside each other. This is the closest we’ve ever been…in a room…beside each other. I was scared. I wasn’t a loose girl and technically, I wasn’t a V anymore. I wasn’t scared of being vulnerable; I was just scared of the outcome. Ok, ‘am talking rubbish. My first experience with sex left a terrible mark on me, I haven’t had a boyfriend since like forever and Daniel wasn’t even my boyfriend. I am attracted to him but I am more attracted to Femi. I wouldn’t want any deep romance between us right now…everything was complicated.

“Penny for your thought” Daniel touched my nose. We looked into each other’s eyes for a while. I tore my eyes away from his. Before I could say Jack Robinson, he kissed me. I didn’t kiss him back neither did I pull away.

I was still thinking of whether to kiss him back when I heard a knock on the door. I pulled my lips away and asked who it was.

“Oh shit!” Daniel swore and got up immediately. I signaled to him to be quiet. I went to the door, opened it and stepped outside. My heart was beating really fast. What is this? What is the drama about? Why can’t it be simple? Love isn’t supposed to be difficult…

“Hello Sir”

“It’s Femi, my name is Femi” he smiled. I shut the door.

“Do you have your card; we don’t want you locking yourself out again?”

I smiled “yes I do”

We both went quiet. I broke the silence. “I would invite you in but Lydia is in there” I lied. Yes I lied again. I’m ashamed.

“It’s alright, only wanted to check up on you, I promise we’ll have that talk, ok?”

“Ok. What time should we be ready for the party?”

He closed his eyes in deep thought “7 should be fine”

“Alright Sir”

“Hmm! I’m not that old you know” he smiled

“You are my boss, that’s old”

He started to laugh and then covered his mouth, he whispered “Lydia”

I faked a smile. Wait sef, what if Lydia comes to the passage. Ha! Time to run.

“Let me go get ready”

“Alright, see you at 7″. With that, he left. I rushed back to the room. Daniel had dozed off. I watched him sleep for a while. How would I break the heart of such a good man? How?
The party had all the Ghana celeb. It was an eclectic mix of the Ghana entertainment industry, the big boys and ladies in town, gents and ladies from various sector of the labor force.

My short black dress accentuated my curves. Lydia said I looked like Delilah trying to taunt Samson. Lydia had chosen a lavender maxi dress. It was stylish and really sat well on her. Daniel had worn a shirt and a jeans, casual but nice. Mr Oga…sighs! White shirt, bow tie, lovely pants, monkey jacket and a panama…he looked really good. Ha! The ‘she’….she looked really fabulous. I don’t wanna describe what she wore but I know she got head turning. She flirted shamefully with Femi and held his hands everywhere she went. She knew all the Ghana stars and was everywhere. I began to feel uncomfortable and decided to look around for Daniel or Lydia. They had both gone to get drinks and had disappeared into thin air…o ga o…sighs!

I walked passed Jackie and we exchange pleasantries. She introduced me to Van Vicker whom she was having a chat with. He looked shorter than the movies portrayed. I left them to continue my search for those silly heads. I finally found Lydia chatting or should I say flirting with John Dumelo…silly girl. Where was Daniel…oh! There he was getting a drink from the bar, I walked up to him and stopped abruptly..What the hell. An idiot just grabbed Daniel’s butt….as in a guy just…omg!!! Daniel turned to face the guy…wahala go shele…I imagined Daniel slapping the hell out of him…What won’t we see in Ghana?
