Pantami Is My Friend, But He Can’t Be Defended – Farooq A. Kperogi

Saturday, April 17, 2021 By Farooq A. Kperogi Twitter: @farooqkperogi This is a difficult column to write because although scores of people have importuned me to intervene in the controversy regarding Communication and Digital Economy Minister Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami’s utterances before he came into government, my wife, who knows Pantami is my friend, pleaded with me to stay out of it. But I would be a hypocrite and betray the meaning of my name (and also my late father who taught me the meaning of my name when I was too young to fully grasp it and who never failed to remind me to live up to it) if I sidestep this consuming national controversy because it puts my friend in a bad light.

Money Printing Scandal: PDP asks Buhari to sack finance minister, Zainab Ahmed

The People's Democratic Party has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sack Minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed for “attempting to mislead Nigerians” over allegations of the federal government printing N50-60 billion to support states’ allocations in March. Recall that while Zainab Ahmed denied claims of the federal government printing money for states to share,  Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Godwin Emefiele said "there's no need for all the controversy around money printing as the concept of printing of money is about lending money." However in a statement released on Friday April 16 by PDP's spokesperson Kola Ologbondiyan, the opposition party said "the admission by CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, that the apex bank has been printing money at the bidding of governme...

Controversy As Linesman Asks Haaland For Autograph After Man City Game

Erling Braut Haaland has become such a superstar, even match officials appear to want his autograph. After Manchester City 's 2-1 defeat by Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-final first leg, one of the Romanian assistant referees followed Haaland down the tunnel at Etihad Stadium, with his flag under his arm, and appeared to get him to sign a red and yellow card he produced from his top pocket. "You shouldn't be [doing that] anyway," said BT Sport pundit Owen Hargreaves. "The officials had a job to do and a difficult first half. They got a lot of things wrong. You can be a fan but you can't do that in front of other players - it doesn't look right." Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola - who wants to sign Haaland - seemed less fussed.

Supreme Court Dismisses Ruling that Said Trump Violated Constitution by Blocking Twitter Followers

The US Supreme Court has wiped away a lower court opinion holding that then-President Donald Trump violated the First Amendment when he blocked followers from his Twitter account.

How To Resolve The Hijab Controversy By Farooq A. Kperogi

People who don’t understand the imperative of lexical economy that column writing imposes on columnists wondered why I didn’t write more than I did last week on the hijab controversy in Ilorin and why I didn’t suggest ways out of the problem I analyzed. First, as much as this is a legitimately religious issue, it is really mostly a social class issue. Most upper-class and middle-class Muslims send their daughters to private schools where the hijab isn’t even an option, and they don't mind. And many wealthy Christians have no problems with the religious restrictions in prosperous Muslim societies like the United Arab Emirates and elsewhere. Only the children of poor people attend public schools where the hijab excites passions, where the politics of public displays of religiosity ...

The Premier League has confirmed that referee Lee Mason will not take charge of any of this weekend’s games. Mason, 49, was at the centre of controversy last Saturday, during West Brom’s 1-0 victory over Brighton at the Hawthorns. He disallowed a Lewis Dunk free-kick, despite blowing his whistle for play to restart. It led to mass protests from the Brighton players and resulted in heavy criticism. Mason, who was due to be the fourth official for Liverpool’s game at Sheffield United 24 hours later, was then withdrawn, due to a ‘calf injury.
