Amaju Pinnick Retains Control Of NFF As Nigeria Avoids FIFA Suspension

Amaju Pinnick Retains Control Of NFF As Nigeria Avoids FIFA Suspension



World Football governing body FIFA has lifted a threat to suspend Nigeria from international football as the country recognised the head of its national federation.

FIFA has received assurances that “legitimate leadership” of Nigeria’s football federation is restored to power and has control of its offices. Amaju Pinnick, who was elected head of the Nigeria Football Federation in 2014, was in a standoff with Chris Giwa, who had appealed the result and won a favourable court ruling in June 2018.

FIFA football rules prohibit interference in how elected officials run football federations under threat of teams and administrators being suspended from international games and meetings.

“The suspension of the NFF will not take effect,” FIFA said in a statement. “FIFA received confirmations that the legitimate leadership of the NFF under President Amaju Melvin Pinnick and General Secretary Mohammed Sanusi has been given back effective control of the NFF and its offices.”

Govt. To Shutdown Third Mainland Bridge Temporarily For Four Days

Govt. To Shutdown Third Mainland Bridge Temporarily For Four Days


The Lagos State Government has said that the Third Mainland Bridge will be temporarily shut down for four days starting from midnight of August 23 to midnight of August 26, 2018 for Investigative Maintenance Test to be carried out.

A release signed by the Deputy Director, Public Affairs, Ministry of Works & Infrastructure, Sina Thorpe, states that Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Mr. Ade Akinsanya, said the decision was taken after due consultation with the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing.

The four-day closure, according to Akinsanya, will enable the contractors assess the true state of the bridge after which works would commence by the end of the year or early in 2019.

It would be recalled that the Federal Government had earlier announced plans to shut the bridge in July, but had to be shelved after due consultation with the State Government and wide deliberations with other stakeholders, who expressed concern about the indiscriminate parking of articulated vehicles on other alternative routes which would have adversely affected traffic.

Subsequently, a Joint Task Force set up to remove the articulated vehicles from the highway was able to achieve tremendous success.

Justifying the need for the closure, Akinsanya said: “The 3rd Mainland Bridge which was opened about 30 years ago by the then military government has had haphazard maintenance and repairs in the past which the present Federal Government is committed to correct by carrying out proper and continuous maintenance and repairs on it.”

Consequently, the State Government appealed for the cooperation, support and understanding of all motorists and residents, advising them to minimize non-essential travel and movements during the four-day closure.

Besides, Akinsanya said all traffic management agencies including the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, Federal Road Safety Corps and the Police, among others, have been mandated to ensure smooth flow of traffic on all the other alternative roads and traffic corridor across the metropolis to ensure free flow of traffic.

Emma Nyra Welcomes A Set Of Twin



Nigerian artist Emma Nyra gave birth to a set of twin on Sunday 11 August 2018, and she expressed extreme joy.


In her own words

“I have never been so inspired and full of love as I am today. With style and full force, you’ve both entered this world and forever impacted my destiny. My career has been my top priority for the past ten years of my life, so you can imagine that I was surprised and shocked for what God had in store for me! Last year I over booked and over worked myself tirelessly just to be able to accomplish one of my biggest goals which was to move into my dream home in Lagos!
“I was in a place in my life where I couldn’t imagine being more content! My parents were extremely proud of all of my accomplishments and my personal life was full of love and friends that encouraged me, since we all have similar goals and dreams.

Emma did a good job in hiding it from the media, as she kept it low key. We rejoice with her as she has begun motherhood.

Atiku- I’ll Serve One Term If Elected President In 2019

Atiku- I’ll Serve One Term If Elected President In 2019




Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar says if elected president, he will sign an undertaking to serve for just a term.

The former vice-president, who said this in an interview with THISDAY, added that his case would not be like President Muhammadu Buhari who allegedly reneged on his promise to serve for one term.
“If I am elected as the president in 2019, I give an undertaking that I would only do one term,” he said.
“Having said that, let me remind Nigerians that Buhari also gave such an undertaking in 2011, but he is not living up to it today. My own case will be different. I am prepared to sign an undertaking to do only one term.
“I am not Muhammadu Buhari. I do not make promises I cannot keep. I am assuring Nigerians that I will keep this promise. I am making it out here in the open.
“I am willing to sign a written document. If you or any other Nigerian can come up with an iron-clad legal document that binds me, I am willing to publicly commit to it.”
“Hypocrisy has always been the APC’s stock in trade. They claimed that the PDP mismanaged Nigeria for 16 years, yet in just three years of APC being in power, Nigeria experienced a recession, which we never experienced under the PDP.”
“Nigeria’s currency became the fourth worst performing currency in the world and in just three years, they have taken more loans than the PDP took in 16 years. They claim the PDP was corrupt, yet Nigeria made its best showing in Transparency International’s annual Corruption Perception Index under the PDP in 2014 when we moved eight places forward, from 144 to 136. Meanwhile, under the so-called anti-corruption government of the APC, we made our worst performance ever, moving 12 places backward, from 136 to 148.
“They claim that the PDP lost the war on terror and they declared victory. But look at where we are today? Terror has spread nationwide and the man who said the PDP was weak on terror says there is nothing he can do but pray! So when you talk about hypocrisy and the APC, you are referring to two evil twins that are so identical that one can pass for the other.”
