Sometime last year, Matthew Okikiolakan Aremu Olusegun Obasanjo, at a private meeting with two former aides and a former minister (while they were still hibernating in the All Progressive Congress, APC) implored them to ensure that Goodluck Ebele Jonathan did not return as President in 2015. It was at that meeting that Obasanjo revealed that should Jonathan return next year as President and Commander-in-Chief, those at that meeting would have to go on exile because, according to a source who was in attendance, the former Nigerian leader said, ‘Jonathan would go after all of you here, including me; so you all would have to go on exile. But I, Obasanjo, would be here. Therefore, he must be stopped’ by whatever means! During a closed door meeting with the leadership of the APC sometime late last year, Obasanjo admonished it to do whatever it would take to ensure that Jonathan did not return. Again, Obasanjo, just this month, repeated the same threat of stopping the President in a BBC Hausa Service radio ...

INTERESTING CHOICE_3 MPs OUT OF 9 DITCH REBELLIOUS BITI Three MPs have reportedly already written to the MDC leadership begging to be pardoned for their involvement in the failed coup plot, which was led by the party's expelled former secretary general, Tendai Biti. MDC spokesman Douglas Mwonzora told this writer Wednesday afternoon that, in fact, seven rebel MPs had made requests verbally but were asked by the party to make written submissions. Information obtained through confidential sources shows that Willas Madzimure (Kambuzuma), Moses Manyengavana (Highfield East) and Bhekhithemba Nyathi (Mpopoma Pelandaba) have formally requested to be pardoned while offering to make confessions about their involvement in the rebellion. The submissions of Manyengavana, Madzimure and Nyathi were confirmed by top MDC sources. Two other rebel MPs, whose identities were not revealed, are said to have also put their requests in writing. Said Mwonzora, 'In fact, there are seven MPs who have come forward but we asked them ...
The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) has finally resolved its impasse, barely few months after 17 members of the group laid claim to the top position of the group. A new executive committee has finally emerged in the group after the intervention of prominent Ijaw leaders. Those who intervened to broker peace in the group included Ijaw foremost leader, Chief Edwin Clark, who is said to have waded into the crisis to settle the discrepancy that led to the factionalisation of the group. It was learnt that the new executive council emerged over the weekend in Lagos following a hitch-free election exercise conducted based on the zonal agreement agreed upon in the group. Sources said the Presidential Adviser on Niger Delta Affairs, Hon Kingsley Kuku and Dr. Felix Tuodolor, Commissioner for Ijaw National Affairs, Bayelsa State as well as an Ijaw leader, T. K. Ogoriba were said to have midwifed the process of the election upon the mandate given to them by Clark and other Ijaw leaders. Former Secretary General of the cou . ...

The text of the submission made by her is reproduced below: “It is my aspiration that health will finally be seen not as a blessing to be wished for, but as a human right to be fought for.” Mr Kofi Annan, Former Secretary General, United Nations “The right to health does not mean the right to be healthy, nor does it mean that poor governments must put in place expensive health services for which they have no resources. But it does require governments and public authorities to put in place policies and action plans which will lead to available and accessible health care for all in the shortest possible time….” Ms M ...
NATIONAL CONFERENCE: ANYAOKU ADVOCATES TRUE FEDERALISM -Vanguard Lagos — Former Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, has said that the proposed National Conference should be used as a platform to evolve a workable federal structure for Nigeria.

Women are powerful change makers and their leadership is critical in development of any society. With the unique set of skills and knowledge that they possess, women play a crucial role in tackling the world's most urgent issues. Recognizing this very fact, United Nations adopted the promotion of gender equity as one of the Millennium Development Goal (MDG 3). Kofi Annan, the Former Secretary General of United Nations has also indicated that "Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development and building good governance." It is evident that empowering women would ultimately lead to economic growth and sustainability of the society. Women form almost half the global population and account for 60% of the workforce, but still have no or little say in decision making and own only 1% of the world's real estate (ILO). Women face political, economic and social, discrimination indicating prevalence of gender biasnes ...
