Ajimobi ‘Was Paid’ $10million To Drop Tegbe For Bayo Adelabu - Sahara Reporters

What really happened was that Ajimobi was supposed to settle for Tegbe. Tegbe has Itsekiri blood; he is from Delta State but he was born and bred in Oyo town,” said a Government House source. “Shortly before the primary, the likes of Otudeko, Onasanya and co mounted pressure on Ajimobi to drop Tegbe for Adelabu. Ajimobi was given $10million; that is N3.57billion. Yes. Yes, yes, yes. It is an open secret in the camp of the decision-makers of Oyo politics.”
The last-minute decision of Abiola Ajimobi, Governor of Oyo State, to back Bayo Adelabu rather than Joseph Tegbe for the governorship ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was not without money changing hands, SaharaReporters has been told.
Months before the primary election, Ajimobi egged on anyone who indicated interest in succeeding him; however, as the primary election drew near, it became apparent that he was tilting towards Tegbe over Adelabu.
A source had told SaharaReporters back then: “Each time anyone went to him to say he wanted to run in 2019, the Governor always encouraged them. He would answer, ‘Of course you are qualified. You schooled and you work in a reputable company; go ahead’. Now, those aspirants misconstrued the Governor’s encouragement for endorsement, not knowing that he had been telling all them the same thing,” he said.

"His Name Is Not Jesus" - Daddy Freeze Codemns The Name 'Jesus'

Controversial OAP and online pastor, Daddy Freeze says 99% of what our Pastors and GOs taught us is false.

According to him, the word 'Jesus' has no meaning and was invented by manipulators. Read his post below...

99% of what your Pastors and GOs taught you is false!
How can his name be ‘Jesus’ when the letter ‘j’ was not part of the English language until 1634? Here is a copy of the original translation of the King James Bible completed in 1611.
How can his name be Jesus when the Hebrew alphabet doesn’t have a ‘j’ sounding letter?
The name ‘Jesus’ is less that 400 years old, how can it aptly depict a savior that resurrected 2,018 years ago?
Yeshua is Hebrew remember? So why does he have a Latin name?
◄ Hebrews 7:14 ►
New International Version
For it is clear that our Lord descended from Judah,
◄ John 4:22 ►
New International Version
You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews.
If salvation is from the Jews, why do we have a Latin Jesus, but obey the law of moses and pay tithe like the Jews?�
The names ‘Joshua’ and ‘Jesus’ are exactly the same word in Hebrew and Greek, the Bible’s first languages, the names were separated in Latin.... why?
Be careful of what name you call... The name ‘Jesus’ was invented, Yahweh had a son called Yeshua, which means salvation! the name Jesus has no meaning, it’s an invention!
Yeshua is our Saviour, while ‘Jesus’ was invented by manipulators, who aligned his birthday with Nimrod’s and the pagan ‘solstice of the sun’.
Yeshua said you can only worship him in truth and in spirit (John4), if you don’t know the truth, you end up worshiping a pagan invention. ~FRZ

FG Rejects Governors’ N22,500 Minimum Wage Proposal

The Federal Government has made it known it was not in support of the N22,500 minimum wage proposed by the Nigeria Governors Forum.

The Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige, made the stance of the Federal Government known on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.

He said, “The governors have not even done enough. I told them that this N22,500 was even rejected by the Federal Government,” he said.

The NGF had stated that they were capable of paying Nigerian workers N22,500 as the new minimum wage as against the current N18,000.

This is lower than the N30,000 proposed by labour.

Ngige added, “The national minimum wage is a national legislation being driven by the Federal Government of Nigeria in pursuance to item 34 of the Exclusive Legislative list.”

NLC Slams Governors’ Forum, Demands N66,500 Minimum Wage

The Nigeria Labour Congress has lambasted the Nigeria Governors ’ Forum for pegging the minimum wage at N 22 , 500 .

The NLC subsequently pegged the minimum wage at N 66 , 500 .

The President of the NLC , Mr. Ayuba Wabba , said this at a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday.

Wabba said the NGF was not known to law and was thus an illegal body.

He said all governors should return to their respective states and consult with workers rather than hide under the umbrella of the governors ’ forum.

Cristiano Ronaldo Equals 60-year-old Record At Juventus

Despite a slow start to life in Italy following his move from Real Madrid, superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has now equaled a goal-scoring 60-year-old record at Juventus.

The Portuguese failed to find the back of the net in his first three matches in Serie A, before finally breaking his duck with a brace against Sassuolo last month.

Since then, Ronaldo has been among the goals regularly in Italy, adding another two to his tally in his side’s 2-1 win over Genoa on Saturday.

According to the Daily Mirror, the 33-year-old has now scored seven league goals in his first 10 matches for the Bianconeri, becoming only the second player to achieve that ratio at Juve since John Charles, who did so in the 1957/58 season.

Charles ended his debut campaign with the Italian giants with 28 strikes, a tally Ronaldo will be backing himself to better this season.

Cristiano Ronaldo becomes most followed person on Instagram

A host of top names came close to the same feat for Juve, but fell short of the mark, including Gonzalo Higuain, Carlos Tevez and Filippo Inzaghi, who all managed six strikes in their first 10 Serie A matches for the club.

Meanwhile, Alessandro Del Piero, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David Trezeguet all scored five goals in their first 10 league outings for the Bianconeri

Buhari Launches Armed Forces Emblem With Appeal For National Unity

President Muhammadu Buhari, Wednesday, in Abuja launched the 2019 Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration Emblem with an appeal to political actors to be decorous in their conduct and utterances in order not to fan the embers of disunity.

The President launched the emblem and appeal fund for the support of Nigerian veterans and fallen heroes with N10 million, before the commencement of the Federal Executive Council.

‘‘We would have no country to lead if our acts of deliberate incitement lead to the disintegration of our dear nation,’’ the President said in his address at the Council Chambers.

‘‘Let us put Nigeria first and realise that in every contest there must be one winner,’’ he added.

President Buhari reminded the nation that the celebration was a painful reminder of the perils of war and the need for the nation to avoid a recurrence.

‘‘The celebration forcefully reminds us of the resolve of our citizens to remain in one united country, Nigeria.

‘‘It also points out the fact that we had been through a bitter and unfortunate war that led to the loss of millions of our compatriots and the need to do all within our powers to avoid a reoccurrence of war,’’ he said.

President Buhari also used the occasion to appreciate the gallantry and sacrifices of the Nigerian Armed Forces in the campaign against insurgency and other internal security operations.

Noting that the efforts of the armed forces have led to the return of normalcy in affected parts of the nation, the President regretted the recent murder of two young and promising aid workers; Saifura Khorsa and Hauwa Liman by Boko Haram terrorists.

‘‘It is painful that this happened despite all the efforts of government to effect release of the two victims.

‘‘We condemn the callous and cowardly act in its entirety and call on all citizens and friends to forge a united front against this common enemy of our destiny.

‘‘Once more, I extend the heartfelt condolences of the Government and people of Nigeria to the families and friends of these martyrs,’’ the President said.

The Nigerian leader pledged that the resettlement and rehabilitation of citizens affected by the war on terror will continue, commending Dangote Foundation for its partnership with Government in the rebuilding process in Borno State.

The President, therefore, called on other corporate organisations to borrow a leaf from this noble initiative as Government alone cannot satisfy all the needs, given her limited resources.

President Buhari also expressed delight that businesses operating in Nigeria are beginning to give special consideration to members of the Armed Forces and veterans.

‘‘Specifically, some airlines operating in Nigeria offer discounts to members of the Armed Forces. This gesture is commendable and in line with my call for recognition, consideration and appreciation of our Armed Forces.

‘‘I urge more business ventures to chip in by assisting the Security Forces in whatever way they can,’’ he said.

The President also thanked charity organisations for taking up the task of catering for the welfare of veterans and members of the armed forces, adding that the nation owe a debt of gratitude to men and women of the armed forces who have the responsibility of securing the Nation, and ensuring a conducive environment for businesses to thrive.

On the Bill to amend the Nigerian Legion Act to a proposed “Veterans Federation of Nigeria” Act, the President urged the 8th National Assembly to give the proposed legislation, which seeks to ensure proper welfare and health condition of military veterans, quick attention.

‘‘As Grand Patron of the Nigerian Legion (Veterans), I wish to pledge my continued support and that of the Federal Government to the organisation.

‘‘My appreciation goes to State Governors who are patrons in their respective states for the support they are giving to the Legion. I enjoin them not to relent but improve on this,’’ he said.

President Buhari called on all Nigerians and others resident in Nigeria to procure and wear the emblems with pride to identify with those who laid down their lives for peace and security of our fatherland.

The President was accompanied to the event by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, members of the Federal Executive Council, Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Olonisakin, service chiefs and the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, senior officers and veterans.

With 250 Engineers And 3400 Workers, India Unveils World’s Tallest Statue (Photos)

On Wednesday October 31st, India unveiled the world’s tallest statue in the western state of Gujurat in celebration of her unity.  

Towering at 182 metres, the Statue of Unity is a tribute to Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, a hero of India’s freedom struggle and the country’s first deputy prime minister. Patel, a Gujarati, was known as the ‘Iron man of India’ as he went about persuading all the princely states to join the Indian union after independence from British rule in 1947.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who also hails from Gujarat, dedicated Patel’s statue to the people of India on the 142th birth anniversary of the statesman’s birth. The record-breaking monument, which towers over the Narmada River, was built at a cost of 29.89 billion rupees (430 million dollars).  

Based on award-winning sculptor Ram Sutar’s creation, the statue was built by engineering firm Larsen and Toubro. The bronze statue, which depicts Patel wearing the traditional Indian attire of a dhoti and a shawl, took 33 months to build and involved 250 engineers and 3400 workers, according to the Press Information Bureau of India.

“To build this statue, [hundreds of thousands) of farmers from all over India came together to donate their tools, portions of their soil and a mass movement developed around the statue,” Modi said in his speech. The 128-metre Spring Temple Buddha in China had previously held the record for tallest statue.
