A new article in this week’s New York Times Magazine titled “The Resegregation of Jefferson County” by Nikole Hannah-Jones looks at how predominantly white towns in Alabama are increasingly pulling out of regional school districts and creating new schools that are overwhelmingly white.

A parishioner, who simply identified himself as Valentine, said the assailant struck around 9am.

Gov Fayose speaks on why he adopted his deputy, Prof Kolapo Olusola as his successor.
“Man proposes, God disposes. Sometimes, you wish some [people] as girlfriend, but they become your wife as perfection, judgment and finality are exclusively of God. The young man is outstanding in character.
“Above all, constitutionally, my deputy is at liberty to run [for election] and I am at liberty to support anyone of my choice. Above all, other aspirants have nothing to fear if they have capacity to defeat him [Olusola] as the primary election is ahead.
“If my support was for them, they would not complain. Rather, they would be celebrating it by now. Most of the aspirants complaining made a success of their political career through God’s grace and by my humble self. They never complained when they were rising at the expense of others.
“The adoption [of Olusola] does not mean there will be no primary. Even for sole candidates, there must be a no or yes answer, so the primary must hold.”
Rivers State Deputy Governor Dr. Mrs Ipalibo Harry Banigo has commended the State Chief Executive Nyesom Ezenwo Wike for matching words with action in the prompt release of counterpart funds for the execution of developmental projects and programmes that positively impact on the lives of the Rivers People.
In a statement from the Government House in Port Harcourt Dr. Banigo said the Governor’s release of one hundred million naira, second tranche counterpart fund for the Rivers State Government/European Union Niger Delta support Programme (RSG/EU NDSP) for Water and Sanitation Projects in Opobo Nkoro and Akuku Toru Local Government Areas is highly commendable.
“His release of the second tranche with the speed of lightening, and his willingness to extend the projects to other Local Government Areas speaks volumes. This has shut the lips of the few critics who are of the view that development is purportedly concentrated on the State Capital” she said.
Dr. Banigo who reaffirmed the State Governments commitment to reduce the disease burden of the Rivers People and improve life expectancy said the Wike led Administration will continue to partner with the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) to improve the living condition of the Rivers People, stressing that the Governors commitment to pay all counterparts funding is unequivocal.
