[ Masterweb Reports: Isiaka Wakili reports ] - The Federal Government has approved that a department of traditional medicine be established in the Ministry of Health to look for malaria cure in the forests. The Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, disclosed this to State House reporters on Wednesday after the cabinet meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari.
 
He said the department would provide the leeway to research into many of the traditional products in the country.
 
Adewole said the Federal Executive Council also approved the use of Naprisan for sickle cell anaemia.
 
"The approval of Naprisan is coming at the eve of an approval granted by government for us to establish a department of traditional medicine in the Federal Ministry of Health.
 
"This will be the first time that this will happen and that department will really provide us the leeway to research into many of our traditional products and the first mandate of this department will be to look into cure for malaria in our forests," he said.
 
Earlier, he said the council approved the licencing agreement between the National Institute for Pharmaceutical Research and Development and May and Baker Plc in respect of scaling up the commercialisation and marketing of Niprisan, a very potent anti-sickle cell drug for use in Nigeria.
 
Adewole said it was estimated that about 25 percent of Nigerians carried the sickle cell gene, while over two million had sickle cell anemia, "that is having the two genes combined. And for many of them, when they are under stress, take ill, what happens is invariably they develop severe bone crisis, they develop infection and some of them will die from this.
 
"This drug was first used in Oyo State over 20 years ago and NAPRED conducted clinical trials to ensure that we are able to document that it is safe, it is efficacious and drug was licenced at an international organisation which went into bankruptcy.
 
"What we have done is to reactivate the product and it will now be marketed in Nigeria through this agreement and we believe that the marketing and production in Nigeria will bring a lot of comfort to millions of Nigerians who are infected with sickle cell gene."
 
The minister said the council also approved N840.8 million for the construction of a trauma centre at the Federal Medical Centre Owerri.
 
He said the centre would serve as a first class centre of care for accident and trauma cases along the Port Harcourt, Owerri, Enugu axis and would "really change the dynamics of care in these areas."

[ Masterweb Reports: Press Release For Immediate Release ] - Integrity Leadership Organisation, a non-governmental organisation (NGO), has faulted the demand by traditional rulers in Ekiti State that political parties must zone the governorship position in the July gubernatorial election to the South senatorial district of the state.

 
Governor Ayodele Fayose had at the weekend called the traditional rulers to a meeting in the Government House where they demanded that the governorship seat in the July election be zoned to the South senatorial district of the state.
 
But the group in a statement in Ado-Ekiti by its State Coordinator, Lekan Oyediran, faulted what he called "a stage-managed request instigated by Governor Fayose", to force the traditional rulers to make themselves available for the governor's personal agenda "dressed in altruistic, collective initiative of the people represented by the obas".
 
"We sympathise with the Obas that were coerced into yesterday meeting to help Fayose push a ravaging and consuming personal agenda that he started more than two years ago.
 
"We understand the condition under which the Obas live in Ekiti State under Fayose where the governor had on many occasions resorted to making them his messengers in matters that are clearly beyond their powers just because Fayose wants to paint a picture of participatory governance.
 
"The Obas cannot be messengers for Fayose in political matters that should better be left to Ekiti people and political parties to decide, and so it is curious that after a meeting with the governor, the traditional rulers read out a statement given to them as if that prepared statement by Fayose represented their general position," he said.
 
The group reminded the Obas that their constitutional roles do not include deciding the zoning of political offices, regretting that acceding to Fayose's request to push a personal political agenda is unconstitutional and abuse of power.
 
"We want to let our Obas know that they are not politicians. Political parties are constitutionally required to field candidates in elections and not Obas.
 
"We know that Fayose corralled the Obas into this political matter of office zoning, but we want to point the attention of the Obas to the fact that they are not politicians to decide such matter; therefore, their call at the behest of the governor is unconstitutional, offending both the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the constitutions of the various political parties," the group explained.
 
Urging the monarchs to operate within the confines of the law, the group also counselled them against being used as tools of disunity in a homogeneous Ekiti State that shares same values, language and culture.
 
"From Otun-Ekiti to Omuo-Ekiti, Ikere-Ekiti to Igogo-Ekiti and Oye-Ekiti to Ogotun-Ekiti, we speak one language and share the same culture and values unlike other states of the federation with a multiplicity of cultures and languages.
 
"We have been living with this unique opportunity for ages and it has helped us in shaping our destiny for good, hence it will be a gross disservice to our people for one man to rankle that great peaceful co-existence for a self-serving agenda at the detriment of Ekiti unity with our traditional rulers being used as tools.
 
"We sympathise with our Obas that are being coerced into this self-serving agenda, but then we expect our revered obas to also exercise discretion in kowtowing to the whims of the governor who believes that his preferences represent the collective will of Ekiti people," Oyediran said.

[ Masterweb Reports: Isiaka Wakili reports ] - The chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Convention Committee, Governor Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa State, says Senate President Bukola Saraki and Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal are not quitting the party.
 
Badaru said this in an interview with State House correspondents on Monday after meeting with the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari.
 
He dismissed reports that the Senate president and the governor of Sokoto State were not negotiating with the opposition People's Democratic Party.
 
Badaru noted that the APC had no reason to comtemplate Saraki and Tambuwal's exit from the ruling party.
 
"It is not true that Tambuwal and Saraki are negotiating with the PDP. We have not heard of that. Some few weeks back, there was a rumour about the governor of Benue and he made it clear at our last NEC that he is not moving anywhere. Those are rumours flying around, but they don't have consequences.
 
"We are united. Governor Tambuwal is with us and distinguished Senator Bukola Saraki, the Senate President is also with APC and we have not had any reason to think that they are negotiating elsewhere, no," Badaru stated
 
The governor expressed optimism that the APC's convention would be preaceful and rancour-free, saying the party was United.
 
"I am sure the convention will bring everybody together, and in democracy, if you are open and straight forward, things get done well, I don't think there should be any problem."
 
Badaru also dispelled rumours of political unrest in his state, describing the weekend's happenings at the APC rally there as "normal political "shaunting" between groups contesting the same position.
 
"People passing by and some groups will shunt for their own and others will shunt for another person and that was what happened. That was a great rally. It is normal in every gathering, you have different supporters supporting different people contesting the same position," he explained.

[ Masterweb Reports ] - Emma Kanu, younger brother of Nnamdi Kanu, fugitive or missing leader of a faction of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) that was proscribed by Nigeria last year, yesterday in Umuahia again demanded for the disclosure of Nnamdi's whereabout after the invasion of their compound by soldiers on September 14, 2017. Emma's call came on the heels of rumours that Nnamdi Kanu was cited in Ghana and their parents in Umuahia recently.
 
Speaking to newsmen in Umuahia yesterday Emma said: "If the military knows Nnamdi Kanu and my parents’ whereabouts, they better let us know and provide them without delay. If they know where they are, they should go and bring them, it’s as simple as that. How come my parents are with us in Umuahia and we cannot see or communicate with them? It’s impossible; they know what they are doing.
 
"Is it not the same military that denied the invasion of our house that came out now to say my parents are in Umuahia and Nnamdi in Ghana; they should go to Umuahia and bring them, let’s see or go to Ghana and bring Nnamdi Kanu let’s see."
 
"The other time, some people said they saw Nnamdi Kanu going to London through Malaysia, others have said they saw him in Germany, Ghana and Cameroon. The military will soon come out to say they saw him in Kano. It’s like my brother has now become a ghost that he should be seen every’where".
 
"If this is so, it goes to confirm our fears that the military who took him away when they raided our home last year had killed him and his ghost is now moving about in those places."
 
"All this are tissues of lies being propped by the military with the intention of diverting attention from people asking them where my parents and brother are. All these are tissues of lies from the pit of hell being junked out by the military thinking that will stop the family, Biafrans and the international community from asking them where they kept Nnamdi and his parents because they (military) saw them last."
 
"All we are saying is that they should allow us see Nnamdi and our parents because we know they are with them; where they are dead, they should release their corpses to us for burial. I thank them so much for the information they are giving us, they should do us more favour by telling us exactly where they are so that we will go and meet them."
 
"The Nigerian army is known for telling lies, even when they invaded our house they lied they never did even when they were confronted with hard evidence they still lied about it. They are a set of people who lie so much and they will continue to lie."

[ Masterweb Reports ] - The family of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), through Emma Kanu, Nnamdi's younger brother has demanded release of his body by the Federal Government for him to be accorded proper burial. Kanu's family believe he was killed when the army invaded their compound September 14, 2017.
 
Emma Kanu speaking to Daily Sun said: "Now that it has been reported that he is dead, the federal government should, without hesitation release his corpse to his family, so that we and the entire Igbo nation can give him the befitting burial he deserves because he is a true Igbo son."
 
He continued: "The call by Danjuma for people in the country to defend themselves means that the elder statesman has just started seeing what the IPOB leader, Kanu saw years back. All the same, it is a clarion call which IPOB will adhere to, no matter the circumstance."

[ Masterweb Reports: Isiaka Wakili reports ] - Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says the present administration is paying N5,000 monthly to over 300,000 of the poorest families across the country. The vice president said the payment was being done without discrimination along party lines.
 
Speaking on Thursday in Umuahia at the launch of Abia State Tele-Health Support Centre, Osinbajo said the federal government was giving loans to over 300,000 traders and artisans, feeding 125,624 pupils in 742 schools "and we have 1,569 cooks in total; for microcredit loans under our GEEP scheme, we have given loans to 7,585 small businesses."
 
He said the government had so far invested about N2.4 billion of the Social Investment Programmes' funds in Abia State "and specifically in healthcare, we have the Saving One Million Lives Initiative, which has made available $1.5 million to each state government – including Abia State – to improve the quality of basic healthcare available especially to our women and children."
 
The vice president said the federal government's plan for the nation was a universal health coverage for all Nigerians.
 
"Health insurance is the most effective way of ensuring access to healthcare when needed and at the same time funding our healthcare system, and ensuring that healthcare personnel are well rewarded," he said.
 
He said President Muhammadu Buhari was committed to the welfare of all Nigerians, especially the poorest and most vulnerable, regardless of their ethnic or political affiliations.
 
"This commitment has meant two things. First is President Buhari’s determination to break from the past where the federal government only supported states where the party in office was their own. At the inauguration of the NEC in 2015, he publicly declared that our own NEC will assist every state because poverty in our nation is no respecter of ethnic group, religion or party affiliation. Consequently, as of today the federal government has supported states without discrimination along party lines to the tune of N1.91 Trillion.
 
"The second is that the Federal government has prioritized social and economic policies and programmes that will bring the greatest benefit to the greatest number of our people. We have examples of these in our Social Investment Programmes. Today, we are feeding 7.5 million children in our Home-grown School Feeding Programme in 22 States. We have employed 200,000 graduates in our N-Power scheme, 300,000 more are waiting to be formally engaged. Every single local government in Nigeria is covered," Osinbajo said.
 
He said the creation of the Abia State Tele-Health Support Centre would reduce the time spent travelling in search of healthcare, or waiting in line to see a doctor in healthcare facilities and close the access-to-healthcare gap between urban and rural areas.
 
"It will also make Abia State standout, within and outside Nigeria, as a forward-looking, people-centred state; one that is open to new ideas and to life-changing innovation," the vice president added.

[ Masterweb Reports: John Chuks Azu reports ] - The founder of Daar Communications PLC, Raymond Dokpesi has protested the inclusion of his name among the Federal Government's recently released "list of looters".
 
In a letter dated April 4, 2018 addressed to the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed by his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), Dokpesi said the publication by the minister is defamatory.
 
Dokpesi is currently facing allegations of receiving the sum of N2.1 billion in several tranches from the former National Security Adviser (NSA) in 2015 before a Federal High Court in Abuja. But the case has suffered many adjournment without conviction.
 
Ozekhome said the publication has damaged his client's "hard-earned reputation" leading to his suffering riducule, psychological trauma and business losses.
 
"Take note that unless you carry out the above minimal demands immediately to redress the incalculable damage done to our client's hard-earned image and reputation consequent upon your defamatory and mendacious publication, we shall, without any further communication from us, commence legal action against you to redress your unrestrained and unwarranted assault against our client's hard-earned image and reputation," Ozekhome said in the letter.

[ Masterweb Reports: Submission by Makweembo Mwanasa ] - "The value of money is not only to build mansions or buy fleets of cars… The value of money is to use it to help others." is a statement made by Prophet TB Joshua of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) during the provision of a scholarship worth over £10,000 (N5m) to Hngshin Daramy-Williams a Sierra Leonean-Singaporean student to pursue his Master’s Degree in Leeds University, United Kingdom.
 
He is one example from the multitudes. From the onset of Joshua’s ministry, the provision of scholarships – ranging from primary to tertiary levels of education – has been an ongoing exercise. However, out of the thousands of recipients who have been partakers of this benevolence, irrespective of religious or ethnic affiliations, two cases shine above the rest – Oduwole Olayinka from Nigeria and Mary Jean Nleya from Botswana.
 
ODUWOLE’S STORY
 
Oduwole Olayinka gained admission into the University of Lagos to study Electrical/ Electronics Engineering at the tender age of 15. She was academically brilliant but came from a humble home which lacked sufficient financial means to supplement her dreams. A devoted member and worker in the ‘Youth Department’ of The SCOAN, Yinka’s intelligence and diligence soon drew the attention of TB Joshua.
 
"I remember how Prophet TB Joshua would come into our midst and tell us his life history and the challenges he faced. He encouraged and motivated me do better than my best," she recounted. When Yinka graduated with a First-Class Degree, the cleric stated during a Sunday service: "The church will take care of her education and she will attend the best university in the world. This will be done until the Lord says it is enough."
 
True to his promise, Prophet TB Joshua sponsored Yinka to University College London (UCL), renowned as one of the top 10 academic institutions in the world. The fees of £18,425 (N9m) for her Masters Degree in Technologies for Broadband Communications were paid by Joshua and the "Emmanuel TV Partners" alongside all other living costs. Yinka passed with flying colours, obtaining six distinctions and two good passes to obtain the best result in her entire class which comprised international students gathered from around the world.
 
"Afterwards, I got an unconditional offer from Oxford University to pursue a PhD in Engineering Science." This extensive program lasting four years cost well over £100,000 (N51m). "This was paid by Prophet TB Joshua and Emmanuel TV Partners. To the glory of God, I got a PhD in Engineering Science, Oxford University on September 16, 2017," she said.
 
"When I was growing up in Lagos, Nigeria, I never imagined that I would one day be an alumnus of the most prestigious university in the world," now Dr Yinka Oduwole said after her graduation. "Positive examples are motivators for success. My success I owe today to Prophet TB Joshua who took me, nurtured me, motivated me, inspired me, sponsored me and taught me to believe that I could achieve far beyond what I could ever dream."
 
"I never forgot where I was coming from," she continued. "I am achieving this not for myself alone but for the thousands all over the world who are right now being helped, equipped and trained because of TB Joshua and Emmanuel TV Partners. We are the leaders of tomorrow."
 
Professor Geoffrey Thomas, Founder and First President of Kellogg College, Oxford, as well as Professor Tom Buchanan, Acting President of Kellogg College, both testified to Yinka’s academic brilliance during her time there. She was even highlighted as the sole African representative in Oxford’s Woman in Engineering – a list containing just 25 female scholars who are excelling in their chosen fields.
 
Yinka, whose PhD studies helped take definitive strides forward in the search for a cure for cancer, is now lecturing at the University of Surrey, as well as partaking in ground-breaking research into 5G technology. She plans to take the broad knowledge she gained from her academic endeavors to introduce such technology into her homeland. And her final advice to young students? "Work as if everything depends on you and pray as if everything depends on God."
 
NLEYA’S STORY
 
Mary-Jean Nleya came to The SCOAN from the Southern African nation of Botswana as "an ordinary visitor." When she met Prophet TB Joshua, "I told him that I had no father – not that I had no biological father but I had no father that was responsible for my education. He informed me that I needed only Jesus Christ to be my father. From then on, I became a SCOAN Scholarship Recipient," she explained.
 
"A number of years ago, I tried to secure funding from the Department of Tertiary Education Financing but my application for a bursary was rejected twice," the young student recalled. "That rejection left me dismayed but I didn’t know that the Lord was using that rejection to preserve me and set me up for a greater level in life."
 
Mary-Jean first received sponsorship to complete her studies at the University of Pretoria in South Africa where she graduated with a LLB Magna Cum Laude. With the help of Prophet TB Joshua and Emmanuel TV partners, she then had an internship at the International Criminal Court at The Hague, Netherlands.
 
"During my time in The Hague, Prophet TB Joshua encouraged me to apply for a Masters at Harvard University. I was daunted by the prospect, given the low acceptance rates. However, I applied and later gained admission to Harvard Law School." Her course at Harvard cost nearly $85,000 (N30.5m), which was paid for in entirety by Joshua and the Emmanuel TV Partners.
 
"Who knew that I would attend a renowned university that has trained world leaders and presidents of superpower nations," she reflected. "But I, Mary-Jean, born in Botswana, have had this opportunity."
 
Showing her appreciation for Prophet TB Joshua, Nleya stated: "As Thurgood Marshall once said, none of us get here simply by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. Somebody had to bend down and help us pick up our piece. This is very true for me. I did not get here by pulling myself up alone. Somebody in the form of Prophet TB Joshua bent down and helped pick up my boots."
 
In appreciation, Nleya dedicated her thesis to the Nigerian cleric. "I literally phoned you crying because I thought I would not be able to finish this research paper successfully; but you calmed me down, uplifted me and told me it was possible. Thank you for leading me by example and setting high standards for me to reach. Thank you for your prayers and the endless lessons you teach," she wrote in her dedication.
 
Nleya is the Founder and Editor-In-Chief of The Global Communiqué, a digital current affairs magazine which "provides compelling content in the form of interviews with those at the grassroots level and prominent figures". She is additionally a correspondent for One Young World and Your Commonwealth, global initiatives that have enabled her to travel to events such as G20 summits and interview world figures. Nleya has additionally written articles published in international media such as Al Jazeera and CNBC Africa, which have earned her numerous accolades.
