Why I Refused Gani Adam’s Request To Visit Me – Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said he had no quarrel with the Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams. The former president said he had refused to grant Adams’ request to visit him when he was president and after he left the office.

We Passed Buhari’s $5.5 Billion Loan Request To Save 20 Million Jobs – Senate President

The passage of the $5.513 billion loan request by President Muhammadu Buhari will save 20 million jobs, President of the Senate Ahmed Lawan said at the weekend. Dr. Lawan explained that the national Assembly did not give frivolous approval. He said Nigeria was able to get concessionary, multilateral or bilateral loans with very favourable conditions of one per cent, 10 years or 20 year moratorium. He also claimed that over 400 bills are being processed in the national assembly to add value to Nigerians’ lives. He said there has been less friction between the Legislature and the Executive because a Special Committee is working behind-the-scene to avert feuds as it was between the two arms during the Eighth Assembly.

The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, on Thursday said he has received a letter from 35 civil society organisations calling for the immediate dethronement of the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, for disobedience to constituted authority.

Why We Rejected Buhari’s $30bn Loan Request – Shehu Sani

Shehu Sani, ex-chairman of the committee on local and foreign debts in the previous senate, has defended the lawmakers’ decision to reject a $29.96 billion loan request from President Muhammadu Buhari.

Judge denies R. Kelly’s request for release with singer likely to remain in jail until his 2020 trial

Singer R. Kelly is likely going to remain in jail until 2020. A Brooklyn judge on Wednesday, October 2, denied the singer’s request to be released from jail while awaiting trial. According to TMZ, prosecutors say Kelly is definitely a flight risk if he gets out of jail while his criminal case is pending. But his lawyers argued that even if Kelly was out of jail he does not have the funds to leave the country. New legal documents obtained by TMZ show that prosecutors believe the singer is still deemed a flight risk following his initial plans to travel to Dubai with his two girlfriends earlier this year after he was released on bail in Illinois. Prosecutors also refute claims that Kelly won’t tamper with or intimidate witnesses, saying the singer “has a history of coercing wome...

Court Denies Meek Mill’s Request To Be Released From Prison

A Pennsylvania court has denied Meek Mill's request to be freed from prison and allowed to post bail. The state's Superior Court on Tuesday denied the request from lawyers representing the 30-year-old rapper and instead directed a lower court to handle the case. Mill's attorneys contend the judge who sentenced the musician refuses to respond to their post-sentencing appeals. The Philadelphia-native was sentenced this month to two to four years in prison for violating probation on a roughly decade-old gun and drug case. The sentence came despite recommendations from Mill's probation officer and a prosecutor that Mill not be jailed. Mill's legal team previously has asked for his release and for the judge to be recused from his case.
