Nigerian Society of International Law and the Challenges of International Law in a Season of Change


Saturday, October 21, 2017 - By Bola A. Akinterinwa ‘International Law in this Season of Change,’ was the theme of the 40th Annual Conference of the Nigerian Society of International Law, held on Thursday, 19th and Friday, 20th October, 2017 at the Ayo Ajomo Auditorium of the Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (NIALS), Unilag Campus, University of Lagos. One major rationale for the conference, apart from the need to celebrate forty years of existence of the society, is the determination of the place of international law in a globalising world of deepening disregard for the law of nations. International law, often referred to as the Law of Nations, is generally weak in terms of enforcement essentially because there are no enforcement agents in the manner of municipal law. Put differently, what would the world be like in the absence of international law, as a regulatory mechanism and in light of mounting nationalism? The conference was structured into four main parts: the opening session, wor ...continue

S’West govs absence from APC consultative meeting, a protest — Source


Saturday, October 21, 2017 - John Alechenu The growing rift among leading figures in the All Progressives Congress has been cited as the reason behind the absence of all governors of the South-West states from the party’s consultative meeting in Abuja. It was learnt in Abuja on Saturday that the absence of the governors was designed to “send a message” to the party’s administrative leadership. The consultative meeting, which was held at the party’s National Secretariat, Abuja, on Wednesday, was at the instance of the Chief John Odigie-Oyegun-led National Working Committee. Apart from the deputy governor of Ondo State, Agboola Ajayi, who represented his governor, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN), none of the other five South-West governors attended the meeting or sent in representatives. It was also unclear whether they sent in apologies as is usually the practice. A top-ranking source within the party’s hierarchy, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said, “It was a message to all who care to understand the way the So ...continue

Don’t deceive us with second Niger Bridge, MASSOB tells FG


Saturday, October 21, 2017 - Chukwudi Akasike The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra has called on the Federal Government to declare an emergency on the roads in the South-East and South-South regions of the country. MASSOB said rather than make empty promises on the construction of a second Niger Bridge, the Federal Government should concentrate on the reconstruction of the bad roads in the two regions. National Director of Information of the pro-Biafran group, Mr. Sunday Okereafor, expressed surprise that while the roads in the South-East and South-South had become death traps, the Federal Government was promising to construct a second Niger Bridge. Describing as an empty promise the recent pledge by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to deliver a second Niger Bridge to the people of the South-East, Okereafor, who spoke with SUNDAY PUNCH on Saturday, said such promise was a mere election campaign aimed at getting Ndigbo to vote for the All Progressives Congress in 2019. “Rather than m ...continue

Survival Nigeria: Why Buhari must listen to the people —Ladigbolu


Saturday, October 21, 2017 - Archbishop Ayo Ladigbolu is one of the strong voices among the southern leaders agitating for the restructuring of the country. He speaks with MOSES ALAO on the likely fate of Nigeria if the current leaders failed to act on the agitation of the people.   RECENTLY, former Kaduna State governor, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, noted that the South-West has been secessionist from the beginning, calling to question the position of the Yoruba on Nigeria’s unity. As a Yoruba leader,  how will you react to that claim? Let me take you down memory lane. When the sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, was arrested and jailed on a trumped up charge of treasonable felony, the late Prime Minister, Alhaji Tafawa, was quoted to have expressed it as “a sad event for Nigeria.” In reaction to him, according to the book, Post-Independence Political Evolution of Western Nigeria: The Obafemi Awolowo Factor, by Pa Adio ‘Mosanya, Papa Awolowo said; “Balewa’s heart is right but his head wrong.” The fact that Balewa felt ...continue

Ogbeh wrong, US didn’t reject Nigerian yams — Exporter


Saturday, October 21, 2017 - OKECHUKWU NNODIM and BAYO AKINLOYE A Nigerian yam exporter, Dr. Timothy Ijir, who is based in the United States, has said that the US authorities did not reject any yam exports from Nigeria. He stated this in an interview with SUNDAY PUNCH on Saturday. He said, “I am the only person who has imported Nigerian yams into the US and I can say without equivocation that they were not rejected. Any statement to the contrary is false and misguided. “Some of the statements and quotes credited to the Minister of Agriculture and Natural Resources are false. I am currently working on importing my next consignment. Our US Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration import permit is still valid.” Also, an expert in the agricultural sector, Prof. Joseph Ukpabi, has accused the Federal Government of not carrying out proper consultations before approving the exportation of yams from Nigeria to the United States, China and the United Kingdom. In June this year, Nigeria commenced yam ...continue

Accessible education for all and not the few - Vanguard News


Saturday, October 21, 2017 - By Denrele Animasaun “The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think — rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.”- Bill Beattie Many of our learned elites benefited from free and high quality education and it did not only transform their lives but that of their families and the next generation. The quest for knowledge is not new; it is innate and transformational when it is allowed to flourish. My father always reminded my siblings and I that: “education is an inheritance, that once it is acquired no one can take it away from you”. The nation’s intellegenzas hold in their hands the foundations of thinking, creative, progressive and a dynamic society. llustration: A teacher. TRCN says 50% private schools employ unprofessional teachers.

Ajasin: Why is the best behind us?


Sunday, October 22, 2017 - THE best is yet to come” is a statement of hope and promise that has become very rare in Nigeria of today. Each time we discuss this country, we are always nostalgic about the past. Our golden age, so to say, lies in our past. The giant strides we have ever made lies in our past. The hope and promise of a greater tomorrow we have ever had lies also in our past. The great men and women of vision who impassion us today are not those of present times but of ages past. Especially so in the South-West, yesterday’s leaders maintain an intimidating presence and like Colossus, they not only bestride the Lilliputians of today but make a mincemeat of them, laughing the best of their efforts to scorn. This was the case again on Tuesday, 3rd and Wednesday, 4th October, 2017 at the Olusegun Aganga Hall of the International Conference Centre, University of Ibadan, at a two-day conference in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the transition of Pa Michael Adekunle Ajasin, ex-governor of old Ondo ...continue

Na’Abba’s theory of accidental leaders - The Nation Nigeria


Saturday, October 21, 2017 - Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Umar Na’Abba, two weekends ago reiterated what is universally acknowledged in these parts, that Nigerian presidents and heads of state assumed office unprepared for governance. Though he limited his conclusions to his observation of the period between 1999 and 2017, nothing in the country’s history contradicts the fact that since independence, no Nigerian leader had come into office prepared, not even President Muhammadu Buhari whose spokesmen solemnly insisted last week was different on account of the efforts he expended in the four times he struggled to get elected as president. Hon Na’Abba drew his conclusions while speaking in Abuja at the 2016/2017 Matriculation and Fellowship Endowment Ceremony of the National Institute for Legislative Studies (NILS)/University of Benin Postgraduate Programme. According to him, “It is a sad commentary on our political life that today recruitment into leadership has been subv ...continue

Oil sector scandal: Proceeds from stolen 1.492billion barrels of crude oil to be recovered  - Vanguard News


Sunday, October 22, 2017 - …Reps conclude probe, may soon table report …727,460 metric tons of gas allegedly unaccounted for (Cost $461million, allegedly traced to 7 countries) …Cost of Crude Allegedly Traced: US, $12billion; China, $3billion; Norway, $839, 522,600 By Emman Ovuakporie The idiocy of the Nigerian state is magnified by the fact that whereas Nigeria has crude oil  worth over $15billion stolen from its shores, at a time when the selfsame country is  chasing after loans that represent just a fraction of what its citizens in collaboration with foreigners have  stolen from it. Therefore, the spectre of gloom that continues to stare Nigerians in the face as a result of the present economic situation may not be about to end unless the Federal Government of Nigeria ensures that  the move to recoup  proceeds from stolen crude, get some traction.   The story is as  stupefying as it is unbelievable. An estimated 1,492,000,000 (One billion, four hundred and ninety million barrels of crude ...continue

“Ogbeh Lied, US Didn’t Reject Nigerian Yams” - Exporter - 360Nobs.com


Sunday, October 22, 2017 - Contrary to claims by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Mr Audu Ogbeh, that the authorities of the United States have rejected yam exports from Nigeria, an exporter has said it is not true. A Nigerian yam exporter, Dr. Timothy Ijir, who is based in the United States, has said that the US authorities did not reject any yam exports from Nigeria. On June 29, Nigeria started to export yams to Europe and the United States, as part of moves to diversify its oil-dependent economy and earn much-needed foreign exchange. The minister had complained that the US rejected yam exports from Nigeria because of their poor quality, adding that his Ministry would investigate the matter. “I have been mandated to brief on one or two developments in the agricultural sector. One, is a new development about the consignment of yams which was exported from here to the US which according to report we heard today, was found to be of poor quality. “The ministry will investigate because the mi ...continue

PDP leaders push for chairmen from South West - The Nation Nigeria


Saturday, October 21, 2017 - •Beg South-South governors, others to abandon quest for slot •Fresh fears over push for ex-Governor Ladoja to join race •Cracks in S/West widen ahead of December convention Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders are mounting pressure on South-South governors of the party and other stakeholders to concede the national chairmanship slot of the party to the Southwest ahead of the December convention. The party has already agreed to pick its next chairman from the south and its 2019 presidential candidate from the north. The South-South leaders of the party are believed to be rooting for Prince Uche Secondus to occupy the post. Secondus was, until recently, a deputy national chairman of the party. The Southwest has no fewer than five aspirants vying for the post. They are a former deputy national chairman, Chief Bode George, ex-Governor of Ogun State Gbenga Daniel, ex-Minister of Education, Prof. Tunde Adeniran, ex-Minister of Sports, Prof. Taoheed Adedoja and ex-governorship candida ...continue

Restructuring Nigeria cannot be possible, unless… —Babalola


Saturday, October 21, 2017 - Senator Andrew Gbenga Babalola represented Oyo North Senatorial District in the Senate between 2007 and 2011. He speaks with MOSES ALAO on the agitation for restructuring and efforts to rebuild the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the national and state levels. Excerpts:   For quite some time, the call for the restructuring of Nigeria has dominated political discourses, with views divided on the components and methods needed to restructure the country. You were a member of the 6th Session of the National of Assembly, which did not witness this kind of agitations. What is your take? I think the agitations have been merely shop talks without any action. I am saying this because everyone has been talking about restructuring but what have they done with the 1999 Constitution, which gives the National Assembly all the powers it has today. You cannot restructure Nigeria as it is today with the structure of the National Assembly in place. Something has to give way. In every attempt a ...continue

Political Neurosis in Contemporary Nigeria - The Nation Nigeria


Saturday, October 21, 2017 - New Hampshire campaign worker: How is the senator this morning? Mary, Senator’s daughter: Oh! Alienated as usual. An American Melodrama: The Presidential Campaign of 1968, p.78 The above conversation was about Eugene McCarthy, one of the most graceful, cerebral and charismatic individuals ever to grace the American senate. Urbane and telegenic to match, McCarthy’s dramatic entry into the 1968 American presidential sweepstakes and subsequent resounding victory at the New Hampshire primary forced the incumbent, Lyndon Baines Johnson, to withdraw from the race. But even at the summit of human distinction, there is a pecking order. The main reason for McCarthy’s “alienation” was because the Minnesota politician was in a class of his own: a star among stars and an outstanding senator in an outstanding senate. He was a poet, essayist, scholar and former small-town college professor of Sociology. Many considered him remote, cold, overly refined and offputtingly high-minded. Now compare th ...continue

Bishop Oyedepo Reveals How He Escaped A Third Potential Plane Crash - 360Nobs.com


Sunday, October 22, 2017 - Bishop David Oyedepo, the General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners’ Chapel, on Friday narrated how he escaped from a recent incident that could have led to a crash of the plane that he was travelling in. The revelation was brought to light in a written testimony read out to the congregation by a church member during a thanksgiving service at the Canaanland headquarters of the church in Ota, Ogun State. It was gathered that Oyedepo was travelling from Cyprus to Israel in company with his wife and three other key members of the church. According to the testimony, it was the third potential plane crash that the bishop would escape. He said the first was an incident in 1997 while travelling from Kaduna to Lagos while the second was during a Lagos flight to Kano in 1998. He said, “In the second incident, one engine of our aircraft failed in-flight. On May 4, 1998, we were on a flight to Kano when I noticed our plane was going down. I went to the cock ...continue

APC crisis: How govs frustrated Oyegun’s plot to abort convention


Sunday, October 22, 2017 - National chairman, All Progressives Congress, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun The last may not have been heard about the crises currently rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC). This is because Sunday Tribune can reveal that the meeting between the chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun and the governors elected on the platform of the party, held last Wednesday, was characterised by a stormy session. The agenda of the meeting called at the instance of Chief Oyegun, was to sound the governors out on the party’s national convention which had been aborted twice this year. Other issues discussed were the interim report of the party’s Committee on True Federalism led by the Kaduna State governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai and  the report of the committee on APC Constitution amendment presented by its chairman and the party’s national Legal Adviser, Muiz Banire, (SAN). A party source revealed to Sunday Tribune that  the APC constitution amendment committee report was an alleged ploy b ...continue

How 7 states blew billions on white elephant projects - The Nation Nigeria


Sunday, October 22, 2017 - Some mega projects worth billions of naira, which were initiated by previous governments in seven states, have been abandoned by the current state governments. The Nation investigation in Abia, Rivers, Niger, Ogun, Plateau, Bayelsa and Akwa Ibom states revealed that the projects, abandoned at different levels of execution, are left to rot away, even as some of them now harbour criminals, reptiles and other dangerous animals. Most of the projects, we learnt, were initially financed through loans, some of which are still being paid or serviced by the affected states. For example, the Monorail Project in Rivers State, which was conceived and began by the former governor of the state, now Minister of Transportation, Chibuike  Rotimi Amaechi, in his first tenure as governor in 2008, was designed to cover 12 kilometres at the cost of N50 billion. It was however abandoned at the point of 2.6 kilometres when the former governor completed his second tenure in office. Sources said the work al ...continue
