According to the traders, the protest is against the imposition of Iyaloja in computer village which they believe doesn’t need such.

Speaking Mr. Wasiu Agbaje, an Information Communication Technology Engineer, stated that the hub is quite different from other markets where such is done. According to him, installing such would undermine the hub because Iyaloja and technology have no correlation.

“What do the Iyaoloja and Babaloja have to offer, what value are they going to add to the hub? And what technological innovations are they bringing?”

Gov Akinwunmi Ambode: I will be Leaving Lagos better than i met it

Governor Ambode

Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has said he is leaving Lagos better than he met it, as his administration has grown the economy of the state.

Ambode said the economy of Lagos has improved despite the recession and that his administration has put parameters in place to make Lagos the third largest economy in Africa.

According to him, he meticulously followed the vision embedded in the Lagos State Development Plan, which elapsed 2025, adding that “I am drawing from what has been put there which is also my own dream to make Lagos that financial hub, to make Lagos a safe, secure city, to make it a mega city and also to compare comparatively with all developmental cities.

“So, I met Lagos as the fifth largest economy in Africa, my dream, which I have always said, is that we take Lagos to the third largest economy in Africa. That’s the dream. So, in 10 years, is that doable? I believe strongly that all the parameters that can actually grow the GDP of Lagos are in place and only need to be accelerated. We have done it to a particular stage, we have stabilized it from where we have found it and irrespective of the recession and irrespective of the slow pace of the economy, there has been significant growth in the Lagos economy which is visible.”

The governor, in an interview published by Business Day, added: “But what is the most important part of it also, we have been able to create a night economy which was one of my missions. So, one thing that we should be seeing ahead is an economy that compares comparatively with New York; an economy that actually takes that vantage position right now because we know that the next economic development in the whole global system is in Africa and Lagos is just positioned as a trigger because of its natural advantages not necessarily because of our skill-sets; it’s just positioned there and so the competencies and the skill-sets that will be drawn in terms of governance and leadership is what should see Lagos as the third largest economy and then compare favorably with cities like Mumbai and everywhere that you go. I mean, you want to see Lagos like a Tokyo but you need a lot of investment in technology.”

Ambode also spoke on how his administration was able to grow the Internally Generated Revenue, IGR, of Lagos, saying that one of the strategic instruments in that development plan was to create a financial model for Lagos State, explaining that it was not enough for “us to say we are having strategic pillars of development without knowing how to fund it and so in the development plan, a growth plan for revenue generation had actually been embedded in it.

“Fortunately for Lagos, you have statistics that favor revenue growth. Lagos is the commercial capital of Nigeria; the business community in terms of population or location is here and this is like 70 percent of what is happening in Nigeria; we have the market and again Lagos is the most sophisticated. Those indicators were just enough for anybody to carry on from where it stopped and then able to continue.

“Remember also when we came in, the revenue that was generated on a monthly basis was about N12 billion and then it moved to almost like N20 billion. Today, we are having an average of N30 billion to N35 billion a month but it is not as if the expansion is based on increase in rate or taxes, what has been done is just improvement in collection machinery and then expanding the tax net and the ability to be able to put people together and run an efficient civil service system that was able to tap into those things; and then more importantly, investing in technology to be able to carry out some of these collections.

“Yes, revenue has improved tremendously but obviously it is based on focus, and it is based on the ability to match those needs in terms of development and economic growth with how to fund it. Lagos is also favoured by the fact that because of the dynamics that we have, we are likely to be more attractive to the capital market and also more attractive to commercial banks and the ability to pay back would always give you more resources to be able to get funding for most of these projects that we have done. Remember also that 67 percent of the total revenue that accrues to Lagos State comes through the IGR so the best model is to continue to expand the IGR base in order for you to be able to cover your fixed cost and also do every other thing that we have been able to do.”

On why Lagos has always been blessed with good leadership with good vision, the governor said that the state had continually used the same set of objectives and goals in a plan that was consummated into a development plan and that the same set of policy document from one government to the other had remained, asides fact that the same party was still ruling Lagos.

“It is the same party that has been able to run the state in the last 20 years using the same set of the policy document, the same set of development and the same set of specialists so to speak. Luckily enough, the people who have been governors in Lagos have been people who have actually worked in the system and same for Sanwo-Olu that is coming in, he has worked in the system. So, that could be a positive thing to be able to draw so much of synergy from the policy document and if you don’t deviate too much, you are likely to deliver on the set objectives in the policy document.

“So, we don’t expect anything away from that and Lagos is lucky, the next four years should actually see something better than what I have done because there has been a trajectory that if you are using the same set of policy document, whoever is coming in next should actually build on what you have done and I don’t expect anything less from the incoming government,” he said.

Even if you marry Jesus and nag, He’d dump you - Prophet Frimpong

Prophet Kwame Frimpong of Yahweh Chapel International in Ghana, has revealed that even Jesus Christ can’t stand nagging.

He made the assertion while speaking on a recent TV show. According to him, “Even if you marry Jesus Christ and you nag, He will leave you. There is nothing as frustrating as a poor disrespectful wife.’’

He went further to say nagging is inherited from mothers. “Some women grew up watching their mothers disrespect their fathers. So they are used to that behaviour.

Their mothers insult their brothers and never apologize for such uncouth behaviour so they also carry it into their own matrimonial homes,” he added.

Recalling how the peregrination commenced, Ambode verbalized the facility was commissioned precisely 29 years ago, with the tardy businessman and philanthropist, Sir Mobolaji Bank-Anthony donating the first dedicated maternal and child care facility to the State Regime, in the recollection of his mother; hence the christened name “Ayinke House”.

He verbalized the hospital, which commenced with just one surgical theatre anon surmised a life of its own as first-class childbirth and maternal care center in the health sector of Nigeria as well as first cull for expectant mothers.

He verbally expressed in view of President Buhari’s tenaciousness of making macrocosmic and rudimentary primary healthcare as one of the cardinal priorities of his administration, the State Regime, under him, had consciously worked to bring quality, affordable and modern healthcare to all our citizenry, among other initiatives in the health sector.

“These and other efforts are directed at ameliorating the lives of our people, especially the women and children; and by extension the productivity of our nation,” he verbalized.

While congratulating President Buhari on his resounding victory at the recent presidential election, Governor Ambode thanked him for finding time to personally commission Ayinke House and other projects in the State, integrating that the completion of the projects would not have been possible without the President’s support, administrative direction and inspiriting.

Galaxy boss arrested over N7bn ponzy scheme

EFCC has arrested the Chief Executive Officer of Galaxy Transportation and Construction Services Limited, #Babagana Dalori, who allegedly defrauded 27,400 Nigerians to the tune of about N7billion through fake promises of mouth-watering returns on their investment in his companies.

Dalori had incorporated the firm in 2012, with one tricycle (Keke NAPEP), which, through pool investments by members of the public, later boasted of 50 tricycles. .

The entrepreneur later diversified into other business ventures while promising mouth-watering returns to investors. The Commission’s investigators discovered that Dalori initially paid 200% interest on investors’ deposits in the firm and later reduced the interest to 135% before the scheme crashed in 2018.

To suck as many unsuspecting victims into his ponzi net, Dalori engaged in massive advertisements on radio and television, including a production of a movie by A-list Nollywood actors, which aimed at convincing members of the public to invest in his companies. .

He specifically organized some actors and actresses in Kannywood to act in a movie called “Zero Hour” to show the need for people to invest in Galaxy.

“Unfortunately, his gimmicks paid off as different people took their hard-earned savings, inheritance, pensions and other source of income and invested in Galaxy. Now, the scheme has crashed and investors can no longer get their money.

He used the investors money to incorporate different entities without getting their consent. He now has Galaxy Global Energy Concept Ltd, Galaxy Miners Concept Ltd, Galaxy Global Farms, Galaxy Computers, Galaxy Block Making Factory, Galaxy Hospital and Galaxy Hotel.”

Dalori’s modus-operandi is typical of those of Nigerian wonder banks, by accepting deposits from members of the public when his company is not a licensed financial institution, the suspect and his company have committed a criminal act punishable by the Banks and Other Financial Institutions Act.

At the moment, all bank accounts belonging to Galaxy have been frozen in order to prevent further dissipation of investor

“Anybody can say whatever pleases them with their mouth. He is the one that has been spreading such stories. When a man knows everything about you, he can choose to do whatever with that information. As for me, I am okay and there is nothing wrong with me.”

“Whatever is going on is known to God. We are still together. He has never discussed all what he has been saying outside with me, so I don’t understand what he is driving at because we sleep in the same house.

“Well, he can continue saying whatever pleases him but I will not say anything bad about him. There is nobody I will discuss his matter with; I just leave him to God. God will judge between us.”

Canada’s Prime Minister looking for One million Nigerian's to apply for Canadian Employment Visa

Canada Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has begs with Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, to allow one million Nigerians enter Canada under a new Employment and Migration Programme designed for immigrants.

According to Trudeau, immigrants from Nigeria have been a strong force in Canada’s growth in all sectors of its economy.

“We can’t undermine or overlook the contribution of immigrants in Canada’s development especially our brothers and sisters from Nigeria”, Trudeau said.

The PM added that, over the past three years, Canada has granted residency to all Nigerians who were illegally living in Canada and applied to remain. “We granted them and urging everyone to apply. It’s good we document everyone to know how many people we are to cater for”, he said.

In a memo sent to the Nigeria High Commission in Canada, the Employment and Migration Programme will allow Nigerians wishing to live in Canada to first obtain job before traveling to the country.

“The programme’s website will be launched next week and all available jobs will be listed. Currently there are over 6 million vacancies and we are hoping that Buhari allows at least one million people from Nigeria”, a spokesperson for the Canadian Labour Department, Shadrack Scott said.

Earlier this year, the Canadian Parliament announced plans to add more new permanent residents in the next three years.

Canada welcomed more than 286,000 permanent residents in 2017 and projects that number could reach 350,000 this year in addition to one million seeking from the West Africa nation.

“Thanks in great part to the newcomers we have welcomed throughout our history, Canada has developed into the strong and vibrant country we all enjoy,” said Ahmed Hussen, Canada’s minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (IRCC).

Hussen, himself an immigrant from Somalia, said the influx will help offset Canada’s aging population and declining birth rate while growing its labor force.

Canada’s friendly stance towards new residents comes as many other Western nations, including the United States, are adopting more restrictive immigration policies.

Canada is especially dedicated to offering protection to refugees. The United Nations Refugee Agency reported unprecedented levels of refugees in 2017, with the number of forcibly displaced people reaching 68.5 million.

Image result for jay jay okocha

Austin Okocha

At Lagos High Court sitting at Igbosere, Lagos, South west Nigeria on Monday renewed a bench warrant for the arrest of the former Super Eagles captain, Augustine Jay-Jay Okocha, for refusal to appear in court over a case of tax evasion.

The presiding Judge, Justice Adedayo Akintoye extended the arrest warrant, originally made last January 29, following an application by the Lagos State Government.

Prosecution counsel, Mr Yusuf Sule told the court that Okocha had yet to settle out of court, the 2017 income tax evasion charge.

Okocha, who was not in court, was not represented by any lawyer.

The government alleged that Okocha had also failed to appear in court since October 5, 2017, when the case was first mentioned.

At the resumption of proceedings on Monday, Sule said Okocha had made contact with the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS).

He said: “The defendant (Okocha) is trying to settle, but he is yet to make any payment. In the circumstances, we will be asking for a further date.”

Health Benefits of Avocado to World

Avocado Fruit  is one of the best delicious and satisfying foods in the world, and its also a power house super food so far and scientifically known as  Persea americana.

This fruit is prized for its high value of nutrient and is added to various dishes due to its good flavor and rich texture. It is the main ingredient in guacamole.

Avocados are one of the most rich, delicious, and satisfying foods in the world. But as a health blogger, I am super happy to share the report than an avocado is a  nothing but a super food filling fruit.

One study out this year found that regular avocado eaters have higher intakes of fiber, vitamins E and K, magnesium and potassium–pretty darn impressive! I eat avocado in at least one meal each day, and I love how versatile they are for cooking (more on that below), but there's also more health-related news to share.

Here are the  avocado health benefits to the world

They boost satiety:

Eating good fats helps to slow stomach emptying, which keeps you fuller longer and delays the return of hunger. Avocados, which provide about 22 grams of fat each (mostly as heart healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, or MUFAs), certainly fit the bill. The addition of half of an avocado to meals resulted in a significant boost in self-reported satiety and a reduced desire to eat for up to five hours.

 Waist whittlers

According to a recent survey, Americans are still fat-phobic, probably due to the notion that eating fat makes you fat. But the truth is eating the right types of fat is actually a savvy weight-loss strategy. In addition to upping satiety, plant-based fats like avocado provide antioxidants and fight inflammation, which have both been linked to weight management. That may be why recent research revealed that regular avocado eaters weigh less and have smaller waists, even without eating fewer calories.

 Protect your ticker

The MUFAs in avocados have been shown to slash "bad" LDL cholesterol, and up "good" HDL levels–a double whammy effect that helps to lower the risk of heart disease, the #1 killer of both men and women. Avocados are also a source of potassium, a nutrient that helps reduce blood pressure by acting as a natural diuretic to sweep excess sodium and fluid out of the body, which relieves pressure on the heart and arteries (bonus: that also means avocado is a natural de-bloater!).

Nutrient boosters

Enjoying avocado at mealtime can help your body absorb more antioxidants from other healthy foods. Another recent study found that pairing avocado with tomato sauce and carrots boosts absorption of the veggies' vitamin A, a key nutrient needed for healthy skin, vision, and immunity.

I have a lots of work to do on my self, before settling down for marriage - Don jazzy Revealed

Image result for don jazzy

Don Jazzy

 The Nigerian music producer, Michael Collins Ajereh, popularly known as Don Jazzy has said that he is not in a rush to settle down for Marriage .

Don jazzy said this during a chat with Saturday Beats, he added that he is in a serious relationship but has lots of work to do on himself before taking the sensitive decision.

“I don’t bring up issues about my relationship status on purpose. People always talk about it.

“It is not difficult to find a wife; there are many beautiful women out there. It is not like I am ready; I am not the perfect version of what I would like to be to my wife and family.

“I want to work on myself until I am ready. By the time I am ready, if someone still wants to be with me, that would be great.

“It is not like I am looking for a wife and cannot find one. There are lots of nice and beautiful ladies out there. I don’t think I am there yet. I am not in a hurry.

“If time passes and nobody wants to marry me, then so be it but for now, I don’t feel I have worked on myself enough.

“I don’t want a scenario where I would get married and my music or business would take me away and the next thing would be that my wife would start complaining that I am hardly around. Then people would start saying he doesn’t care about his family. I don’t need that type of talk in my life.

“Let me be on my own, whenever I am ready, I am ready. I have a girlfriend; I have had different girlfriends in the last 10 years. I can’t just be single; I never said I was celibate. The relationship can break, she can leave me and go, and it is possible.

“My other ex-girlfriends left me, they didn’t break my heart, they just moved on, some of them are married now, if they were still waiting for me, they won’t be married by now.

“People have their personal agendas and it is understandable. For me, I am not in a hurry.”

Don Jazzy insisted that he does not have a child outside wedlock.

He was quoted as saying, “I didn’t hear anything about having a child outside wedlock. I don’t have a child yet or maybe somebody has a child for me somewhere and they don’t want me to know about it but I don’t know why they won’t want me to know about such a thing.

“If anyone has a child for me, they should bring the child forward. To the best of my knowledge, I don’t have a child yet.”

Truth is how much humility and calm are u supposed to have? Even if we want to believe that God is using the situation to test us , will he test us to our death and demise?

For what reason is such an individual wearing the uniform of one who is supposed to protect and serve the same person he is bludgeoning and raping of his rights in broad daylight so bold and so arrogant with slaps to follow and insults. Then more planking .

My God i beg u please cos i will disarm that fool and shoot him with his own gun. I swear on it.
