The tables have turned and what was once the media’s favorite message — President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the election — has now grown silent. Apparently, it’s Bill and Hillary Clinton who’ve been doing the behind-scenes and suspicious dealings with Russia all along. Oh, and perhaps others in the Barack Obama administration, too.

Former Minister of Petroleum Dieziani Alison Madueke

The heat on former Minister of Petroleum Dieziani Alison-Madueke is yet to settle with recent report by the Premium Times revealing that about N47.2 billion and 487.5 million dollars in cash and property have been traced to her by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). It is believed that these funds would have been able to complete the Lagos-Kano and Lagos-Calabar rail lines.

The EFCC Boss, Ibrahim Magu told the Daily Post that only about 15 per cent of the monies misappropriated by the former Minister of Petroleum has been recovered. The alleged 1.7 billion dollars corruption trial involving Madueke and her associates, including Kola Aluko, Jide Omokore by the US government may have helped to corroborate the claims of the EFCC.

The Federal Government has continued to post recoveries made from forfeiture of cash and financial assets from corrupt politicians.

Take a look across the river, you will find the hometown (Bebelebiri) of the former Minister of Petroleum, Dieziani Alison Madueke

However, the kinsmen of Dieziani are surprised over the corrupt allegations leveled against their kinswoman because their daughter did not give them the impression that she allegedly received money while she was Minister of Petroleum, especially as there was no evidence of investment of such monies in her hometown Bebelebiri in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. Our source at the community said that many people there are complaining that despite how popular she is, they are yet to feel her impact.

A visit to the former Minister’s hometown shows a high level of poverty among most residents. The houses are dilapidated, with no access of road or bridge to the community. The children lack educational amenities, they have to cross the river to get to school daily on the other part of Yenagoa. The most common form of employment in the community is local canoe transportation, which is a major source of earning for the women. Also, drug use and cultism is rife in the area.

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that the Federal Government’s clampdown on judges was aimed at weakening the Justice system to lay the grounds for the wholesale politicization of the justice sector in the country.

The governor said that the systematic intimidation of the judiciary by the Federal Government has nothing to do with its dubious and much discredited fight against judicial corruption.

Speaking during the Special Court Session to mark the opening of the 2017/2018 Legal Year, Governor Wike said that the Federal Government is guilty of impunity, threat to rule of law and impartial delivery of Justice.

He said: “The danger in the incremental politicization of the judiciary has started manifesting in the poor quality of justice from the election tribunals where judges are appointed and directed to execute pre-determined results, and also in the quality of the Court of Appeal, where seniority, proven competence and integrity are blatantly passed over for partisan affiliations in the appointment or elevation of judges to that court.

The office which SARS uses in the state was originally built to be used as market, but because of criminal activities in the area, a building in the premises was given to the security outfit of the Nigerian Police. But, recently there has been a face off between SARS and some well placed individuals in the state and Obio/Akpor in particular over alleged misconducts of the security operatives.

The council authority in the letter noted that the call was to enable the council carry out full renovation work in order to commence the original purpose in which the property was built. It read in part: “I am directed by the Local Government Council to give you one month notice to vacate and deliver up possession of the premises/proprty of the Obio/Akpor International Market which you presently occupy as a licensee thereof on or before 30th day of November, 2017.

The Commander of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Mr. Akin Fakorede, in reply on Thursday described the letter by LG authority misleading and warned the council against making false claims.

Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi,” the letter read. Also, the Public Relations Officer of the Rivers State Police Command, Nnamdi Omoni, in a swift reaction noted that the Local Government authority had no right to evict the police from the facilty, adding that the council was not housing SARS. Omoni wondered why the LG would initiate such move to quit SARS, stressing that there was no tenantship agreement between the police and the council. He noted that a copy of the letter has been forwarded to the legal department of the command for the next line of action. Meanwhile, a swift reaction, a group under the aegis of Initiative for Transparency Strategy for Good Leadership, ITSGL, has described the development as unfortunate and disheartening. The leader of the group, Chizy Enyi, who condemned the action of the Obio-Akpor Council, noting that it was an attempt to disrupt the security formation of the state. Enyi called on the people of the state to speak against an alleged fight against security operatives to save the lives and prosperity of residents of the state.

WHAT SKIN BLEACHING CAN DO TO YOU

Jamaican Dance Hall Star, Vybz Kartel Skin Bleaching

Skin bleaching is a trend these days among many African women, especially in Nigeria, in spite of having to spend more money to look whiter.

According to University of Cape Town report, about 75 per cent of Nigerian women patronize skin-lightening products. The demand is also high in Ghana and Senegal.

The attraction is that they want to tone to restore their natural skin condition. The believe is that men are quick to compliment visibly fairer skin. According to one female respondent, “toning my skin makes me feel younger.”

It is not surprising to see adverts appearing on billboards and Tv promoting fairer skin. Many say this might have prompted the Dove advert which saw a black woman pulling off a T-shirt to reveal a white woman. According to the British Metro, London-based entrepreneur, William Adoasi describes the business strategy of Nivea as appalling.  An  American actress Monica Raymund also tweeted that Nivea’s skin-lightening agenda is racist and horrendous.

While, skin lightening producing companies like Nivea may have come under attack, what about those who patronize their products? despite the harmful effects.

The health implications surrounding the use of skin lightening creams may have proved more damaging than its benefits. Recent research shows that it leaves the women with rough skin and clots. Thus exposing the skin to harmful UV lights and cancer. The use of skin lightening creams prevents the formation of melanin. A major chemical component in the bleaching cream hydroquinone inhibits the production of melanin. Continue reading
