The Nigerian Senate has condemned a proposal by the Federal Ministry of Health to borrow $200 million (N82,070,388,916.76) under the malaria program to buy mosquito nets in the 2022 budget.

What we have are recycled leaders who have chosen to kill us one by one, we will be standing up to our oppressors starting from Lai Mohammed – DJ Switch

Nigerian entertainer, DJ Switch has said that Nigerian leaders are afraid of youths and have failed to create an enabling environment for them to thrive and contribute. In her speech at the Oslo Freedom Forum, the entertainer referenced Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s 1977 hit song, Zombie, where he likened the Nigerian Army to Zombies, saying they are like ‘mindless zombies following idiotic orders.’ DJ Switch who gained prominence after doing a live video of the Lekki Toll Gate shooting last October, also chided Nigeria's Minister of Information and Culture who she described as one of the country's 'oppressors'. She said;   “As an artiste and a DJ, I listen to music a lot all the time and I am reminded of the legend — the artiste, Fela Anikulap...

One-time billionaire, Elizabeth Holmes Facing 20 Years in Prison for Fraud

An entrepreneur once dubbed the 'world’s youngest female self-made billionaire' faces two decades in prison as she awaits a fraud trial. Elizabeth Holmes, 37, is accused of lying to patients and investors of her medical tech start-up, Theranos, which at one point was valued at £6.6billion. Theranos promised to run hundreds of medical tests using a single drop of blood using its technology, but it never lived up to expectations, and may never have worked at all. Holmes is alleged to have overhyped claims about the company’s financial performance, before it went bust in 2018. Her major investors included Rupert Murdoch, who put in $121million and the Walmart’s Walton family, who invested $150million (£109million). More than...

President Buhari’s assent to the PIB is a callous act – PANDEF slams Buhari

In a statement released by the group's national publicity secretary Ken Robinson on Monday August 16, PANDEF described the signing as a "callous act" and further alleged that it simply "speaks to the repugnant attitude of disregard, propelled by arrogance, disdain and contempt with which issues concerning the Niger Delta Region are treated, particularly, by the present Administration." The group stated that President Muhammadu Buhari went ahead to assent to the Petroleum Industry Bill, despite the overwhelming outcry and condemnation that greeted its passage by the National Assembly, especially with regards to the "paltry" 3% provision for the Host Comm...

Queen Elizabeth bans military uniform for royals at Prince Philip’s funeral following debate about whether Prince Harry and Prince Andrew can wear uniforms

Queen Elizabeth II has ordered that no royal should wear military uniform for the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral. Prince Harry had faced the humiliating prospect of being the only senior male in the royal family who won't wear the military uniform after losing his honorary ranks. Harry, 36, was stripped of his three military titles when he quit royal duty with wife Meghan. Royal protocol now means the Duke — who did two tours of Afghanistan with the Blues and Royals — can only wear a suit with medals at royal functions. Also, there was serious debate about whether Prince Andrew should be allowed to wear his Admiral uniform since he's been implicated in the scandal involving convicted pedophile Jeffrey Eastern. While Andrew has lost many of his charitable patronages, he has ...

Victor Osimhen’s €60m Price Tag Outrageous – Garba Lawal

Ex-super eagles midfielder, Garba Lawal, has disagreed with French club Lille over the €60m price tag placed on Victor Osimhen ahead of a possible transfer in the summer. Osimhen, one of the hottest transfer prospects, is almost certain that he won’t stay at Lille following his impressive performance in the French Ligue 1 last season. Despite Les Dogues dropping their asking price for the Nigeria international from an initial €90m to €60m, Lawal believes that the talented forward is overpriced. “Lille are asking for €60m because they saw the calibre of clubs asking to sign Osimhen,” Lawal says. “They wouldn’t have asked for such amount if it was an average team that was willing to sign him because there is no way they could afford it. “Take for instance, if it was Aston Vill...
