7 former employees of Nigerian Airways die in one week while waiting for their pension

At least seven former workers of the defunct Nigeria Airways died in the last one week while awaiting their severance package from the Federal Government.

Chairman, Elders Forum of the defunct Nigeria Airways, Mr. Godwin Jibodu, said the pensioners died in abject poverty despite having served the nation well.  He listed names of the deceased persons as Capt. Asuquo, Capt. Akintaju, Capt. Tunde Akinyosade, Capt. Sam Ohioma, and Mr. K. C.  Amah while Mr. T. Bellgam and Mr. Ebenezer Akinbode were down with stroke.

According to him, one of the ex-workers, Capt. Charles Ntanyi, has been missing since August after boarding a commercial bus at night in the Ogba area of Lagos.  The Federal Government had earlier this year approved N45bn for the payment of gratuities and other retirement benefits of former employees of defunct airline, out of N78bn owed the workers.                                                                             Continue reading

Trump resumes Twitter attacks on Comey and ‘Crooked Hillary’

President Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday morning in order to denounce former FBI Director James Comey and take an apparent swipe at his own Justice Department.

Trump was reacting to the release of FBI documents that seem to confirm that Comey, whom Trump controversially fired in May, began drafting a statement about the outcome of the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server months before any conclusion was reached.

“Wow, FBI confirms report that James Comey drafted letter exonerating Crooked Hillary Clinton long before investigation was complete,” Trump tweeted. “Many people not interviewed, including Clinton herself. Comey stated under oath that he didn’t do this-obviously a fix? Where is Justice Dept?”

“As it has turned out, James Comey lied and leaked and totally protected Hillary Clinton. He was the best thing that ever happened to her!” he later added.

In a release titled “Drafts of Director Comey’s July 5, 2016 Statement Regarding Email Server,” the FBI posted an email Comey sent to colleagues May 2, 2016. The body of that email has been redacted, but two weeks later, on May 16, 2016, Comey’s chief of staff forwarded it to several more people asking them to “please send me any comments on this statement” for “discussion with the Director at a later date.”                                                Continue reading

A Magistrate Court sitting in the Tinubu area of Lagos on Wednesday remanded Aminu Abubakar, the son of a former Vice President, Abubakar Atiku in the transit cell for disobeying a court order.

Olaudah Equiano was born in 1745 in Eboe, in what is now Nigeria. When he was about eleven, Equiano was kidnapped and sold to slave traders headed to the West Indies.
