#SaveNengiFromCancer

Hi! My name is Rachel Nengi Fubara. I’m a vibrant and ambitious, 27 year old female. I’m a graduate of Genetics & Biotechnology from the University of Calabar, Nigeria and a fashion designer. In 2018, I was diagnosed with acute Angiosarcoma (cancer of the lining of the blood vessel), a cancerous tumor, very close to my groin. Further evaluation showed that the groin mass is sitting on the femoral vessels.

It all began during my service year when I noticed a painless lump on her groin area, I went to different hospitals and was prescribed compression tights to worn at all times with hopes that the swelling will reduce or disappear. I wore this tights for almost two years (2015 – 2016) all to no avail. The swelling only got bigger and painful. I underwent a surgery in January 2018, to remove this mass. Upon conducting a biopsy to test this growth, results came back as a cancerous growth. Since then, my family has been trying to raise funds to send me to India for further medical treatment which includes another operation and chemotherapy. Walking as become difficult because of the tumor and the tumor is getting bigger.

Like most of us, I have goals and dreams, one of which is to further my education by obtaining a Masters degree and kick-start my clothing design & making business. However, all of these dreams have been put on hold to be whole again.

I need your financial assistance to fund my transportation and medical bills. Whatever donation I receive will be greatly appreciated. Thank you and God bless you!

Nigerian professor in sex for grades scandal gets prison term

Published

on

Nigerian professor Richard Akindele, accused of demanding sex from a female student, was sentenced to prison on Monday.
Akindele was convicted after pleading guilty to four criminal charges, including demanding gratification from a student and sexual coercion of a student.
Akindele had pleaded not guilty to the charges in earlier court appearances at the Federal High Court in Osogbo, southwest Nigeria. However, he changed his plea during his third appearance in court on Monday.

Akindele was sentenced to two years in prison for demanding sexual benefits from student Monica Osagie, two years for soliciting sexual benefits to improve her marks, one year for falsifying his age, and one year for altering evidence. The judge said his sentences would run concurrently, so he will serve two years.

Osagie, 23, was not in court on Monday but her lawyers  consented to a plea bargain made by Akindele, a requirement under Nigerian law.
The case against Akindele gained momentum after Osagie’s exclusive interview with CNN.
Osagie said she secretly taped a phone conversation with Akindele to gather evidence against him.

Akindele was fired by Obafemi Awolowo University for sexual misconduct one month after the interview and the Nigerian Senate launched an investigation into the issue of sexual harassment in universities.
Nigeria’s anti-corruption agency, ICPC, also started criminal proceedings, which led to his conviction Monday.
Akindele’s lawyers negotiated a plea bargain with federal prosecutors and they deliberated for four hours before Justice Maureen Onyekenu reached a judgment on Monday. The judge rejected the terms of the plea bargain, including a suspended sentence, community service and an option of a fine.
The professor needed to be “taught a lesson” to serve as a deterrent to those who abuse their authority, Onyekenu told the courtroom.

She said accepting the bargain would have downplayed the trauma victims of sexual harassment face in universities.
“I know the mental torture many of our female students have been subjected to by the likes of the respondent.
“The adverse effect of such action is huge. Many of his like have been awarding marks to those students that are ready to warm their beds, thereby releasing half-baked graduates into the society,” Onyetenu said.

A lawyer for Akindele did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Akindele’s sentence was hailed by women’s rights campaigners and prosecutors pursuing the case.

“The ripple of the outcome of this case will be felt positively for years to come,” ICPC spokeswoman Rasheeda Okoduwa said.
“It’s a clear message to all those who harass students to stop it. If they don’t, we will come after them with the law. This brings some measure of relief to students in the system if this harassment occurs,” she said.

Vote buying, act of corruption–ICPC

Published

on

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) on Friday in Lagos described vote buying as an act of corruption which the commission was committed to tackling.
Dr Musa Abubakar, the Acting Chairman of ICPC, made the declaration at a one-day ‘National Campaign Against Vote Buying and other Electoral Malpractices’ organised by ICPC in conjunction with the Youth Alive Foundation(YAF).
According to Abubakar, represented by Mr Shintema Binga, the Zonal Commissioner for South-West in ICPC, vote buying, which is a type of electoral fraud, takes the form of collecting payment from candidates after voting for them.
“Such payments are usually made through agents either directly or through phone transfer.
“Rigging can take the form of falsifying election results by changing figures to favour particular candidates.
“This is a falsification of official records and punishable under the ICPC Act 2000,’’ he said.
Abubakar urged Nigerian voters to shun attempts by unpatriotic elements in the society who might want to buy their conscience with foodstuff, cloth and cash.
“If you allow them to succeed in doing so, they will make sure they steal resources meant for provision of water, healthcare, educational facilities and construction of roads.
“If such people force themselves on you by bribing you, they will not have your time because they have already settled you.
“I will also advise you to resist any attempt by such disgruntled elements to use your children as thugs to kill, maim and threaten political opponents.
“Admonish your children to resist such attempts; if being a political thug is a worthy way of life, let them recall their children studying abroad and use them as thugs, but they will never,’’ he said.
The acting chairman said that the commission had met with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chairman where issues of training and election monitoring were revisited.
According to him, the commission is prepared to monitor the 2019 general elections.
Also speaking, Mrs Ijeoma Okey-Igbokwe, the Head of Voter Education, Publicity, Protocol and Civil Society Organisations in the Lagos office of INEC, said it was disheartening to see people negotiating at voting centres.
According to Okey-Igbokwe, vote buying starts from the period of registration of voters card.
She urged voters not to sell their votes, adding that their votes were their conscience.
Okey-Igbokwe, who was represented by Mrs Adenike Oriowo, the Assistant Chief Administrative Officer, said the commission organises educational programmes to enlighten voters on their rights.
Also speaking, Mr Chamberlain Etakuctoh, the Programme Coordinator for YAF, Lagos Chapter, said that vote-buying had become a national concern requiring the attention of all stakeholders.
Etakuctoh urged voters not to allow opportunists to destroy the future of the coming generation.
In his remarks, Dr Peter Okereke, Lead Consultant, Save Visions Africa, Lagos, said that money had become a dominant and determinant factor in the country’s politics.
According to him, poor Nigerians are victimised by vote buying because their limited level of survival makes them susceptible to material inducement and offer of basic commodities.
He said that vote buying was mainly caused by ignorance on the part of the electorate, apathy and poverty as well as deceit by politicians.

EFCC grills ex-governor’s son over alleged N27b fraud

Published

on

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday confirmed the arrest of Ogbonna Orji , is one of the children of a former Abia State Governor Theodore Orji.
It, however, denied the arrest of the sons of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The commission described the purported raid on the apartments of Atiku’s sons for foreign currencies as another tales by moonlight.
The EFCC also said it did not block or freeze the accounts of Atiku’s running mate and former Anambra State Governor Peter Obi.
It made the clarifications in a statement by its Acting Head of Media and Publicity, Mr. Tony Orilade.
The statement reads: “We have received several calls and email messages asking us to confirm the arrest of the sons of the presidential candidate of the People Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, as being alleged in some quarters.

“Some also said we raided the apartments of Atiku’s son looking for foreign currencies. This is nothing but another tales by moonlight.
“It is in the news that we have been investigating the former Abia governor, Senator Theodore Orji over alleged N27 billion money laundering. In the course of investigation, we discovered that he laundered part of the money through his sons.
“We have been on the trail of some of the purchases made by his son including the cars the boys allegedly bought.
“Last Friday, we traced one of the cars to a night club in Abuja. In order not to cause panic, we waited until the business of the club was over and when the owner of the suspected car entered to take off, we arrested him and his friend who has a similar brand of car. That was about 5am on Saturday, December 8, 2018.
“The two boys we arrested were Ogbonna Orji, 32, and Kelvin Ilonah. While Orji’s car, a Range Rover is valued at about N100 million, Ilonah’s car also a Range Rover, is valued at about N35 million.”
The statement gave the details of the interrogation of the governor’s son and his friend.
“In the course of further interrogation, the two boys led us to their apartment, three flats, and documents retrieved from the apartment showed it was rented for N13 million each per annum.
“Another new Prado Jeep, a 2017 model was recovered from the boys in the compound. The two boys in question gave useful information to the commission, which is helping in our further investigation.
“The EFCC, as a responsible organisation is abreast of the establishment mandate and we shall not deviate from such mandate.
“We never went after Atiku’s sons, neither were Atiku’s sons among the two boys arrested. There is no link whatsoever to Atiku.
“Only last week, PDP was alleged to have raised alarm that the commission blocked and or freeze the accounts of the vice presidential candidate of the PDP, Peter Obi.
“Again, this was another lie which we immediately punctured as there was no truth in it whatsoever, to the accusation. Till now, only silence has prevailed from the camp of the accusers.”

PDP Asks National Assembly To Override Electoral Act

Published

on

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign organization has tasked the national assembly to save Nigeria’s democracy by immediately overriding President Muhammadu Buhari’s refusal to sign the amendment to the electoral act.

The PDP says this legislative action has become necessary as the president’s decision is a calculated attempt to hold the nation to ransom, inject crisis into the electoral process and ultimately scuttle the conduct of the 2019 general elections, because there is no way he can win in a free and fair contest.
“President Buhari’s repeated refusal to sign amendments passed to check rigging of the election, raises issues of his sincerity of purpose and has the capacity to trigger political unrest and violence, which can, in turn, truncate the hard-earned democracy”.

The PDP invited Nigerians to note that this is the fourth time president buhari is withholding assent to the amendment, without any cogent reason.
“Nigerians can recall how the buhari presidency plotted to plunge the 2019 elections into a needless controversy by delaying the submission of the election budget to the national assembly, presenting it at the time the legislators were commencing their annual vacation and asking for virement of funds already approved for development projects, instead of sending a fresh supplementary budget for the election.
It is unfortunate that Mr. President, in his desperation to hold on to power, has resorted to taking steps that are capable of destabilizing the nation, just because the people are resolute in voting him out of office democratically”.
The PDP noted that president buhari is afraid of the amendments because they essentially checked the All Progressives Congress (APC) rigging plans, including the use of underage and alien voters, vote-buying, alteration of results and manipulation of voter register.

2019: No voting for Nigerians in diaspora – Presidency

Published

on

The Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa has ruled out the possibility of voting for Nigerians in Diaspora in 2019 general elections.
Dabiri-Erewa made the assertion while playing host to the Rwanda High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr Stanislas Kamazi, in Abuja.
She however said that the Federal Government was making necessary efforts to ensure that Nigerians in the Diaspora exercise their voting rights.
“Nigerians abroad have the touch of the government, Nigerians in the Diaspora have remitted about 22 billion dollars annually.
“But, beyond the remittance, they also want to vote and efforts are being made to achieving that; though, not in 2019.
“It is one of what we hope that will happen in subsequent elections,” Dabiri-Erewa said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the Chairman of the Independent Electoral Commission, (INEC) Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, had at a forum said that the possibility of Diaspora voting in 2019 was not certain.
Yakubu said that the National Assembly needed to amend the sections of the Constitution and the Electoral Act (2010 as amended) to make way for Nigerians living outside the country to participate in the electoral process and vote.
“The law as it stands at the moment, says that you can only vote where you are registered,” the INEC chairman had said.
Dabiri-Erewa said that those in the Diaspora were also interested in investing in the country and government was making environment conducive for that investment.
“They want to invest in their own country; so, we are providing the structures to make that possible by working with other government agencies to make that possible.
“Government is also working on data of those that have returned; lots of them are going into farming and they are not regretting investing in their country.
“So, government is making sure that the Diasporas invest in their country to bring in their wealth of their experiences and resources to develop the country.
“We want to ensure that Nigerians in the Diaspora be the best as they always be,” she said.
Dabiri-Erewa said that there were a lot of lessons to learn from Rwanda Diaspora operation.
In his remarks, the high commissioner said that there were a lot of lessons to learn from Rwanda Diaspora policy which has been in operation for some years.
Kamazi said that Rwanda’s new administration had created a platform for the Diaspora to be part of the country and enjoy the same right as the citizens in the country
“Apart from this, there is the personal contact. As a matter of fact, every year in Rwanda we hold constitutional meeting for strategy to develop the sub-sector.
“The President of Rwanda has always been part of Rwanda Day in any part of the world bringing all Rwandans together and to interact with the dynamics of the country.
“This forum formation led to the emergence of strategic investment that wants to be implemented in Rwanda and which triggers members of the Diaspora and also investors or economic operators in their host country.
“They are mobilised to embrace Rwanda economic dynamics and the opportunities that are there,” he said.
According to him, the diplomatic mission and embassy also have a clear directive to attend to members of the Diaspora.
“When they come to us we have a lot of programmes to ensure that all their needs are met and ensure that they invest in their host countries.
“The most important is to ensure that any Rwandan living outside the country enjoy the same right as those in the country, they gradually felt to be part of the nation not as it used to be in the past,” he said.(NAN).

Osinbajo cries gang-up against President Buhari

Published

on

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo says discredited elite has ganged up against President Muhammadu Buhari, praying for his death because he stopped grand corruption in Nigeria.
Professor Osinbajo spoke at the National Consultative Forum organised by the National Committee of Buhari Support Groups in collaboration of the Council for New Nigeria Initiative in Abuja.

Blocking looting
He described President Buhari as “the gate keeper” who has blocked all avenues through which the elite loot Nigeria’s resources.
He said it was because of this that the elite wanted him dead.
“They prayed for him to die he didn’t die, when he came back hale and hearty by the grace of the Almighty God, they mourned while Nigerians rejoiced…The fear of Buhari makes these people desperate even crazy.
“So now they say he is Jubrin from Sudan.
“If you can’t discredit him say he doesn’t exist! They were all alive and well when Pastor Adeboye went to London and prayed for him the day before he returned to Nigeria.
“How will one jubrin sit in Federal Executuve Council, conduct meetings, consult with his ministers , speak to me daily!
“Their strategy is simple if you tell a lie often enough some will believe you.
“Buhari is not only alive and well; he will by Gods grace live long and welll after his second term in office,” the Vice President stated.

Achievements
Professor Osinbajo said the Buhari administration has been able to accomplish a lot in three years.
“This is because he wants to use the resources of this country for the common man unlike what happened in the previous government.
“Between 2010 and 2014 our nation earned the highest amount ever in history from oil the sum of US383 billion….Just to compare in the same period, we have earned less than US112 billion.
“When we came into office in 2015 over 22 States were owing between three to six months salaries. The President insisted we must support the states to pay….Yet this was when oil was down to 30 dollars a barrel or less.”
He said; “We are earning 60% less than the previous government, yet in the past three years we have spent N2.7 trillion on infrastructure, the highest in the history of the country .
“We are not stealing the money. We are using it for the people.”

Projects executed
Professor Osinbajo enumerated the projects that the administration has executed to include; major roads in 36 states, the Lagos-Kano railway , the Warri-Aladja , the Mambilla hydro power project and the Port Harcourt-Maiduguri Railway.
He also said that the administration was feeding over 9.2 million children every day; giving two million petty traders a better deal in life with Tradermoni; employed 500,000 graduates under the NPowerprogramme and giving about 300,000 of the poorest Nigerians N5000 a month.

2019 election
The Vice President said the 2019 general election would be historic and would be a battle between those who want our country’s resources to be used for our nation and the people and those who want to privatise the commonwealth.
“The man who stands against the forces of retrogression and for the future of our children is the man called Muhammadu Buhari.
“Come February 2019 the APC will by the grace of God win the general elections.
“We will return President Muhammadu Buhari as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria for a second term…He is not perfect man, but he is an honest and truthful man,” Professor Osinbajo added.
The National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu urged Nigerians to re-elect President Buhari in 2019.
Tinubu said the integrity of President Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has given confidence to businesses to invest in Nigeria.
“Leadership is about character.
“Don’t worry, we have a good team; they will talk about herdsmen and farmers clash; if they are not the sponsors, they will know because it has been happening during their era too,” Tinubu said.
According to him, the herders-farmers conflict in some states of the country could be turned from tragedy to prosperity.
“We have the capacity in this country to do irrigation; utilise our water resources; to create green pastures and ranches. We will convert that mystery; that tragedy to opportunity to our people-livestock.
“It is economy; we have higher institutions which have conducted various studies on ranching; we can only change the way of life of some people. The Fulanis will have greeners  pastures, okay; lets build schools; let’s build ranches and create economy of farming for farmers to provide animal feeds.
“If we create slaughter labs and abattoirs, we can now hygienically transfer those feed in a cold storage-transportation; that is equally business, “the  APC National leader said.
Good will messages were delivered at the event by some APC leaders and candidates for the 2019 general elections.

Court grants EFCC leave to arraign Alison-Madueke

Published

on

An FCT High Court, Apo on Monday, granted the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) leave to arraign former petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, and a former Chairman of Atlantic Energy Drilling company, Olajide Omokore, on Feb. 25.
Alison-Madueke and Omokore, are to be arraigned on five counts bordering on conspiracy and illegal act of accepting and giving gratifications.
Trial judge, Justice Valentine Ashi, granted the EFCC leave, after the prosecution counsel, Mr Faruk Abdullahi told the court that while investigations were on going, the former minister left the country and is currently in the UK.
Justice Ashi, also ordered the EFCC to put its house in order.
He alleged that Alison–Madueke, refused to honour an invitation by the EFCC to appear at the commission.
The suspects, are to be arraigned for allegedly accepting and giving gift of properties described as penthouse 22,Block B, Admiralty Estate, Ikoyi, and penthouse 21, building 5, block C, Banana Island, Lagos.
The EFCC said the alleged offence, contravened the provisions of Sections 26(1) and 17 of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Act, 2000.
The prosecutor, Mr Faruk Abdullahi told the court that while investigations were on going, the former minister left the country and is currently in the United Kingdom.
He also said that on invitation by the EFCC Mrs Madueke refused to honour the invitation but all process are set in place to ensure she comes back to face trial.
The counsel for the second defendant, Tayo Adeniyo SAN, told the court that his client was not served with the charges and his client was read to clear his name.
NAN reports that on Nov. 11, the EFCC confirmed that the process to bring back a former Minister of Petroleum, Alison-Madueke, from the United Kingdom has begun.
Acting spokesman of the Commission, Mr Tony Orilade, disclosed this in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.
According to Orilade, EFCC’s Operations Department had made presentation to the Legal Department to commence the process, noting that the process has commenced.
He, however, said that the action had to be processed through the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation, explaining that it was not something the Commission could commence and conclude on its own.
“It is ongoing. Within the next few weeks, the extent to which we have gone will be made known to the public.
“It is not a fresh case; it is not a fresh petition that is just being looked into; the whole process is a total package.
“This request to have Mrs Alison-Madueke repatriated to Nigeria is just an aspect of Diezani’s investigation and commencement of trial,” he said.
In 2017, a Federal High Court in Lagos ordered the final forfeiture of N7.6bn alleged loot recovered from the former minister to the Federal Government.
Justice Abdulazeez Anka granted an application by the EFCC seeking the final forfeiture of the money to the government.
Granting the application, the judge had said: “I have read the motion on notice seeking the final forfeiture of the sum of N7.6bn reasonably suspected to be proceeds of unlawful activity.
“I have also gone through the affidavit in support of the application.
“In the circumstances, I am of the view that the application has merit and is hereby granted as prayed. Parties have a right of appeal.”
In October, 2017, the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, had said that Nigeria had no immediate plan to bring Alison-Madueke back home to face trial.
Alison-Madueke, who is being investigated in the UK, had urged the Federal Government to have her repatriated to Nigeria to face corruption charges against her.

ASUU strike: FG withdraws `no work no pay’ threat

Published

on

The Federal Government has withdrawn the recent threat to activate the ‘no work no pay policy’ against striking university teachers.
This was disclosed by the National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, in an exclusive chat with Vanguard Media.
Ogunyemi also said that the negotiation meeting between ASUU and the Federal Government would continue on Monday, stressing that what the union was doing was to rescue the education sector from imminent collapse and to ensure that the children of the poor get access to quality and affordable education.
The ASUU boss also said that last Friday’s meeting between the two parties did not yield much results.
He said: “Well, we have confirmed that they have withdrawn that threat (no work no pay). So it appears the threat is not there for now.
“But even if the threat is there, we are prepared for that because for our members, no sacrifice is too much to salvage Nigeria’s education.
“Shortly before our action while the NLC (Nigeria Labour Congress) hullabaloo was going on with federal government, they went to the Federal Executive Council that they were activating that rule.”
