Keshi Resigns As Coach; Yobo, Enyeama And Odemwingie Quit Super Eagles

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 38 Second

Stephen Keshi has resigned as head coach of Nigeria and some top Super Eagles’ players, Vincent Enyeama, Captain Joseph Yobo and Osaze Odemwingie said they plan to give chance to younger ones in the Super Eagles as they are also quitting to concentrate at club level.

The Super Eagles reached the last 16 before losing 2-0 to Didier Deschamps' side on Monday thanks to a Paul Pogba header and a Joseph Yobo own goal, both of which came late in the game.

Keshi, who took over as Nigeria coach in 2011, said: "It's time for me to go back to my family and face fresh challenges."

Keshi, 52, has stepped aside before only to be convinced to return, after the Confederations Cup last summer, but is to move on and has been linked with the South Africa job.

"I wanted to leave on a high for my country. Defeat by France was not the right way to go but I'm happy with all I've done for the national team."

In separate interviews at the mix zone, they said they have had their time and would want to concentrate at club level.

Peter Odemwingie said, “I am confident I should go now, and I can say I have no bad feelings. I am happy we played well but lost. I am not too sure now whether to wish we played badly and win or the other way round. Whatever the case, I am happy I am leaving the team in the hands of capable upcoming juniors. They should be held together for a long time. For me I am not getting younger, I need to get home and evaluate what plans I have for the future.”

In response to the fact that he was still young, he said “That is why I was not conclusive. But to tell you, I will like to face club action. I still have three years left in my contract. I will like to stick with the club. I am not discussing any moves. I am happy at my club. For me, I have had a fulfilled time with the national team. I have enjoyed every moment of it. I need to quit now. The upcoming players in the team are good. They need all the chance. I just have to go.”

Enyeama on the other hand apologised to Nigerians for the failure of the team to beat France.

He said, “I want you all to forgive us. You have all done well to support us to this stage.”

NAN reports that Yobo no doubt made history by reaching the 100th cap mark in the national team, indeed the first Nigerian to have accomplished it.

However, he had scored an own goal in the 90th minute – a not so impressive record on a special day in his national team career.

“It happens; it was not really his fault. That should not diminish his contribution to the national team,” Mike Umeh, the Vice-President of the Nigeria Football Association said.

Boko Haram: We Are Not Overwhelmed by Emergencies, Says FCTA

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 33 Second

In spite of the incessant bomb blasts being orchestrated by the Boko Haram sect in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), the FCT administration has stated that it has not been overwhelmed by  emergencies arising from the disaster.

The Director General, FCT Emergency Management Agency, Alhaji Ababs Idriss, gave this hint  yesterday in Abuja while fielding questions from journalists in his office on the readiness of the agency to emergencies in FCT.

Idriss, who spoke through the  Director of Administration and Finance, Mrs. Alice Odey-Achu, who said that the agency maintains its five minutes response time to emergency admitting that there are a lot of factors that impede response time.

He disclosed further that the agency's response time to the last Wednesday's bomb blast at  EMAB Plaza was seven minutes, stressing that two fire stations were on ground immediately after the explosion occurred.

Idriss revealed that in order for the agency to perform its duty effectively, it had engaged voluntary workers known as 'Voluntary Vanguard' to assist in rescue operation in times of emergency, adding that the vanguards exist in all the six area councils of FCT.

His words: "We are not overwhelmed because our men were there. Within seven minutes of getting the call, Asokoro Fire Service was already there and was later joined by Gwarinpa and then these two fire stations were able to put the fire under control.

"In fact, by the time the management team of FEMA heard that there was a blast, we were having our management meeting in Zone 6. Look at how close Zone 6 is to EMAB Plaza but the time we moved from there to the Plaza, all the fire was down. We saw our men already carrying the dead and the wounded. Our ambulances were on ground."

Boko Haram: Catholic Church Rehabilitates Widows

0 0
Read Time:2 Minute, 17 Second

 The Catholic Church has commenced a programme of hope and rehabilitation for the over 2,000 women widowed largely by the Boko Haram insurgency in its parishes in Borno, and Yobe States including part of Adamawa State in the North-eastern part of the country.

Speaking with journalists at the workshop on financial management organised for the first batch of the widows who were selected to benefit from the scheme, the Bishop of Maiduguri Diocese of the Church, Most Rev. Oliver Dashe Doeme, said the initiation was in keeping with Christ's teaching that the less advantaged members of the society should be supported.

He said the widows needed to be empowered, having been made to go through a lot of suffering after their husbands’ death.

Doeme said: "The widows suffer a lot once the husbands are gone, they become neglected, most of the family members do not come close to them, let alone to help them.

"We have an obligation to take care of the poor and needy. So we call the widows first for the workshop and then to give them a little assistance that will help them to take care of themselves. We want them to be able to go back to establish small businesses."

He added: "Our major target is to help them take care of their children, for many of them are left with six, seven, ten children with no work and they need assistance from somewhere to raise these children."

Doeme said: "Right from the word go, the church has always been taking care of orphans, widows and other less privileged in the society as that was the reason for our Lord's coming, Jesus Christ was doing good and was particularly taking care of the poor.

"In my capacity as a leader of the church and a representative of Jesus Christ, the Bishop of Maiduguri Diocese which covers Borno, Yobe and parts of Adamawa State, I have to take up the challenge of taking care of the widows in our parishes in the area."

He said the church standing in the place of Christ the widows who have no place to run to have to run to it and it has no choice but to assist them.
The Bishop, who said after the workshop the widows would be given some financial assistance to start up a businesses, disclosed that the first batch of those to be assisted are in Borno/Yobe axis and that the train would move to Adamawa axis by weekend.

He also disclosed that in the next phase the widows would be assisted to acquire skills, which would lift them from their present situation upward.

NIGERIA: Church Bans Women from Carrying Handbags to Service

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 12 Second

The Catholic Diocese of Enugu has banned women from coming to church services with handbags for security reasons.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria ((NAN)), it was gathered that the development is aimed at tightening security measures following the activities of Boko Haram on places of worship in the country.

The Bishop of the Diocese, Rt. Rev. Calistus Onaga, who announced the ban, also directed all parish priests within the diocese to make the official announcement in their parishes.

He appealed to the faithful to cooperate with the church in that regard, adding that the exercise was not meant to embarrass the women or anybody but was rather borne out of the present disturbing insecurity challenges facing the nation.

The head of the Catholic Church in Enugu State said the measure would be done with human face, and in a civilised manner.

A worshipper in the church, who spoke on condition of anonymity said: “I must tell you, that the Bishop and the entire Catholic faithful in Enugu, are apprehensive with the rumour of the insurgents infiltrating the east, especially the alleged recent escape of two buses conveying Boko Haram members to Abia state, during a security check.

He said: “I support the development that henceforth, women will no longer be allowed to enter Catholic churches during masses with hand bags, apart from their purses, which will also be subjected to thorough scrutiny by church workers.

Court Can’t Force AGF to Prosecute MTN for Suppression of Evidence

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 36 Second

A Federal High Court yesterday ruled that the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister for Justice cannot be compelled to prosecute MTN Communications Nigeria Limited for alleged suppression of evidence.

A former Governor of Osun State, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, had filed the suit for an order of mandamus to compel the AGF to prosecute MTN for withholding the calls log between leaders of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and retired president of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami.

Although, MTN produced calls log for three months, Oyinlola claimed that the communication firm ought to have submitted a calls log for one year as mandated by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

The former governor consequently applied to the court for a judicial review to compel the minister to initiate criminal prosecution against MTN for allegedly suppressing evidence.

But in  a judgment yesterday, Justice Adeniyi Ademola held that although Section 174 of the Constitution provided for the granting of order of mandamus against a public officer to compel him/her to perform his public responsibility, the section equally provided the Attorney General with the discretion to  initiate public prosecution.

The judge held that granting order of mandamus under Section 174 of the Constitution, which Oyinlola relied on in his application, was discretionary in nature, and that the court had the discretion to grant or refuse it.

He further held that for order of mandamus to be issued on a public officer, there must exist a public duty and not one in which the officer had a discretion to perform, and that it must be a duty that such public officer must perform, but which he refused to perform, which did not include a duty to institute public prosecution.

Justice Ademola held that Section 174 granted the 1st respondent (AGF) discretionary powers and not duty to initiate public prosecution.
He further held that, as against the contention by the applicant (Oyinlola), Section 174 preserved the discretion of the AGF.

The judge said: “The 1st respondent (AGF) in exercising his discretion under Section 174 of the Constitution cannot be questioned by anyone, not even the person of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

He added that if the AGF abused his position, he could only be checked through public opinion or reassigned to other offices or removed from office by the president, who appointed him.

On plaintiff’s argument that the AGF appointed a political appointee, in the person of Simon Egede, as an acting Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), the judge held that  if the court was to vitiate the letters written by Egede, on the grounds that he was not qualified to act in that capacity, “it then means the applicant’s application for order of mandamus will have no leg to stand on, because it would have become statute barred and would have been liable to be dismissed in line with the provision of Order 34 Rule 4 of the court’s Civil Procedure Rules 2009.”

Justice Ademola held that having earlier held that the cause of action in the suit arose in October/November 2013 on the basis of the documents authored by Egede, tendered by the applicants, “if the letters by Egede is vitiated, the applicant’s application would have been caught by the Limitation Law under Order 34 Rule 4 of the court’s Rules.

“In conclusion, this court cannot issue an order of mandamus to compel the 1st defendant to initiate prosecution against the 2nddefendant for alleged attempt to suppress evidence,” the judge held.

On the plaintiff’s argument that the AGF could even direct the police to prosecute the 2nd defendant (MTN), the judge held that, even if the police take it upon themselves to prosecute MTN, the 1st respondent had the powers, under Section 174 to discontinue such action.

“Having taken into consideration the public interest, interest of justice and the right of the AGF to prevent the abuse of legal process and that in the exercise of his powers under Section 174 of the Constitution, the 1st respondent has discretion; accordingly, order of mandamus cannot be issued against the 1st respondent. The application fails and it is hereby dismissed,” the judge held.

UNEP Report: MOSOP Coordinators Kick Against Planned Protest

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 32 Second
The Kingdom Coordinators Forum of The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has dissociated itself from the planned protest by a faction of MOSOP led by Mr. Legborsi Saro Pyagbara. A statement signed by the Chairman of the Forum, Frank Jonah said the protest will not only endanger the lives of people but will in no small measure work against the interest of the Ogoni in the present political dispensation.
 
Mr. Jonah Spoke to newsmen in Bori, Ogoniland at the end of a consultative process with chapter leaders of MOSOP.

The MOSOP Kingdom Coordinators expressed deep concern about the security of lives in a protest in Abuja or in any part of the country given the present security situation.
 

The Forum expressed displeasure over the insensitivity of the Pyagbara-led group to the present realities and strongly condemned the call for a street protest at this time.
 
The Coordinators therefore urged the FCT Police authorities to ensure that no protest of that sort is allowed in any part of the FCT noting that the real motive of the protest is to embarrass the government rather than the implementation of the UNEP report as claimed by the Pyagbara led MOSOP.

The MOSOP Coordinators also expressed worry about the deep cooperation between the Rivers State Government and the Legborsi Pyagbara led MOSOP whose activities continue, not only to embarrass the Ogoni people, but jeopardizes every effort at resolving the crises surrounding the non-implementation of the UNEP report on Ogoniland.
 

While calling on all Ogonis to reject the cleanup protests, The MOSOP Coordinators urged the federal government to dissolve the present HYPREP and setup a more transparent and credible agency to oversee the implementation of the Ogoni UNEP report.
 
Signed,
Letom
Media Assistant to Frank Jonah

Chairman, MOSOP Kingdom Coordinators Forum
