The Federal Executive Council has approved N621.2 billion for the newly incorporated Nigeria National Petroleum Company (NNPC) to reconstruct the collapsed Lagos- Badagry expressway, as well as 20 other federal roads spread across the six geopolitical zones of the country.

The approval was given on Wednesday at the weekly virtual Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo at the State House, Abuja.

Briefing newsmen after the meeting, the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, said FEC had given approval to the NNPC to take over the reconstruction of 1,804.6 kilometres-long 21 federal roads in critical conditions at a whopping sum of N621.2 billion.

The minister said it was being executed via a strategic intervention under the Federal Government Road Infrastructure and Refreshment Tax Credit Scheme.

According to him, nine of the selected projects are in North-central, three in North-east, two in North-west, two in South-east, three in South-south, and two in South-west.

Robert Sarver to sell Phoenix Suns and Mercury after N-word scandal

Published

on

Robert Sarver will be selling both the Phoenix Suns and the Phoenix Mercury after an NBA investigation revealed that he used the n-word multiple times during his tenure as an owner in the leagues. The NBA investigation also revealed that Sarver made inappropriate comments toward women, and didn’t treat his employees fairly or equally. Commissioner Adam Silver who fined him $10 million and suspended him one year over the offence, had insisted the punishment was strong enough. Sarver however announced on Wednesday morning September 21, that he is “beginning the process of seeking buyers for the Suns and the Mercury”, just after fans and multiple star players including LeBron James, Chris Paul and Draymond Green called for more severe sanctions.  He said in the statement;  “Words that I deeply regret now overshadow nearly two decades of building organizations that brought people together — and strengthened the Phoenix area — through the unifying power of professional men’s and women’s basketball.”But in our current unforgiving climate, it has become painfully clear that that is no longer possible — that whatever good I have done, or could still do, is outweighed by things I have said in the past.”I do not want to be a distraction to these two teams and the fine people who work so hard to bring the joy and excitement of basketball to fans around the world.”I want what’s best for these two organizations, the players, the employees, then fans, the community, my fellow owners, the NBA and the WNBA. This is the best course of action for everyone.”In the meantime, I will continue to work on becoming a better person, and continuing to support the community in meaningful ways. Thank you for continuing to root for the Suns and the Mercury, embracing the power that sports has to bring us together.”The post Robert Sarver to sell Phoenix Suns and Mercury after N-word scandal appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.

Court refuses to grant Baba Ijesha‘s bail application pending appeal

Published

on

Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo of Ikeja Special Offences Court on Wednesday September 21, refused to grant a bail application filed by convicted Nollywoord actor, James Olarewaju, alias Baba Ijesha. Ijesha had sought bail for an appeal to the five-year conviction for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl. Taiwo struck out the bail application on grounds of the actor not meeting exceptional circumstances and criteria.  The judge said;  “The applicant must show special and exceptional circumstances because the term given to him is five years which is to run concurrently.“There is no evidence that the appeal has been entered and there is no indication before this court that the court will not treat the case expeditiously.“It is in the view of this court that the applicant has failed to show special circumstances to warrant him bail because he is facing a serious crime.“In view of this case, I am inclined to refuse the bail application of the applicants pending appeal.”  The post Court refuses to grant Baba Ijeshas bail application pending appeal appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
