LoveWorld USA TV: Israel Is The Center Of The World – Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

“Israel makes a huge difference for the betterment of humanity as a whole”, says Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. This past Saturday, February 10, 2018, LoveWorld USA TV aired a special episode dedicated to Jerusalem and the close connection Evangelical Christians have to the modern day and Biblical Israel. The program: ‘Your Loveworld‘ that airs daily on different relevant topics, placed this show’s focus on Israel through an Evangelical lens. In the show, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome declared Israel as the center of the world, asserting its spiritual importance for Christians in North America and around the world. Israel is where Jesus Christ originated from, it is the historical and biblical land of the ancient and thus modern day Israelites. The show captures Pastor Chris interviewing leading Israeli military and academic officials on the different struggles modern day Israel faces on several fronts. LoveWorld TV has been establishing itself as a leading Evangelical channel across the world from Nigeria, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and now in the United States (reaching Canada as well). Believers’ LoveWorld Inc. (BLW), the megachurch behind the different TV channels, recently signed a contract with Verizon, one of the largest networks in the US. The move is planned to take place on the 1st of March and is seen as the next step in the expansion of the church’s reach in North America and around the world. The very fact that LoveWorld USA made the decision to dedicate an entire episode to Israel is a true indicator of Pastor Chris’ connection to the American Evangelical community. The show was a part of a short visit Pastor Chris made a few months ago to the Holy Land. Israel has a special place in the hearts of many Evangelical in both the religious and political aspects. It is the land where Jesus walked on water, it is the land that Christians believe hold a close connection to God. It aims to increase the accessibility of Christian materials to all believers across the world through TV, social media and much more. Similar to Pastor Chris, Evangelicals in North America hold the same views towards Israel, as it plays a crucial role in their faith. Through this shared belief, the BLW community has the capacity to expand and establish a relationship between America and Israel. The topics discussed on the show Pastor Chris displayed a deep understanding of the complexity of the situation in Israel; religiously, politically and militarily. He conducted an interview with Brig. Gen. Shalom Harari, and Israeli counter terrorism expert. They spoke of the different threats to Israel, as well as the historical, archaeological and Biblical connection the Israeli people have to the land of Israel. They discussed the deep connection Israel has with the Bible and how the Holy Scripture is used in every aspect of life, even in military services in museums and monuments to commemorate fallen soldiers. An additional interview was conducted with the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) intelligence veteran Prof. Mordechai Kedar. Pastor Chris was interested in hearing about the way Christians are treated in Israel in comparison to other Middle Eastern countries in the region. The different terror threats were discussed as well, in conjunction with Kedar’s expertise. Kedar acknowledged the shared importance of Jerusalem to both Christians and Jews alike. When asked by Pastor Chris regarding the world’s hostility towards Israel, Kedar expressed his wish that all the nations around the world will declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move their embassies to the city as well. Pastor Benny Hinn made an appearance on the show as well. He explained the historic significance of the existence of Israel to Christians. Additionally, many are unaware that Pastor Hinn is originally from Jaffa, Israel. He shared some of his early childhood experiences from that special time in history and how that affected the way he sees the world. He shared that his close connection to Jesus, as well as his avid dedication to preaching the Word of the Lord, was shaped through his childhood experiences. LoveWorld USA is for all Evangelicals This show is just one example of the many ways LoveWorld TV is not just a regional channel. It is universal. Specifically, LoveWorld USA caters towards the US Evangelical community, providing them content that fits their values and needs as Christians. The content on the channel is diverse and provides a range of options for the viewer. From children friendly shows, to daily sermon, and even local and global news. It is a channel that fits the needs of any American Christian with a need for ethical TV that places Jesus and the community first.

SGF Rushes To Ekwueme’s Bedside After It’s Exposed Buhari Refused To Pay Medical Bill

Following news reports on Monday that President Muhammadu Buhari’s government has refused to pay for the medical expenses of the ailing former Vice President Alex Ekwueme, the presidency is in panic mode seeking for ways to do damage control. Sources told Vanguard that the federal government has reneged on its promise to bear the full cost of treatment and transportation of the elder statesman to a hospital in London, and referred the issue to the Anambra State government where Ekwueme hails from. This shocking decision comes even as President Buhari attempted, last week, to score cheap political points with the illness of the 2nd Republic politician. The president had announced that Buhari had “approved” for Ekwueme to be flown abroad for treatment and that the government would cover the cost of the treatment. The statement generated a media storm with experts saying that the former vice president is entitled to such benefits and it wasn’t at the discretion of the sitting president. Nigerians took to social media platforms to shame the president for the propagandistic approach of the Buhari government in dealing with the sickness of the former vice president. A few of the comments on Twitter are below: They lied to Nigerians to get to power, Buhari-led APC Govt is still lying to Nigerians. After announcing that Buhari approved the medical cost for Alex Ekwueme, according to interview in Vanguard newspapers, his family confirmed that is a LIE!!!! 😓😓😓 pic.twitter.com/b1u2WIK0q6 — Adetutu Balogun (@Tutsy22) November 13, 2017 So the Federal Government isn’t paying for Ekwueme’s treatment and hasn’t even paid his entitlement since Buhari took office. But let’s wallow in propaganda. https://t.co/yhILpk5re8 — The Nick of Time (@nicholasibekwe) November 13, 2017 Who remembers when I Tweeted this? What did I hear Ekwueme’s family is saying now? https://t.co/8qfaLTC7ff — Mr Stanley Nwabia (@MrStanleyNwabia) November 13, 2017 How the Buhari-led APC Govt is willing to lie so shamelessly is no longer a matter of banter or politics but an assault on decency, and an insult to common sense. Announcing it was wrong and backtracking on it is even worse. This Govt is a huge mess.https://t.co/jUWenT85Qm pic.twitter.com/Y000MpeJoJ — Demola Olarewaju (@DemolaRewaju) November 13, 2017 Propaganda dey smell. You publicize an action which is due a former VP & then don’t even do what you publicized. https://t.co/xT3Rxq1sIH — Eromo Egbejule (@EromoEgbejule) November 13, 2017 So after all the noise from Aso Villa vagabonds about approvals for former VP Ekwueme’s treatment abroad. It turns out his treatment won’t be financed by the FG after all. In fact it’s been said that he has been denied his entitlements since Buhari became president. — Babasola Kuti (@SKSolaKuti) November 13, 2017 Two very disturbing stories in this piece. 1)Our FG used Alex Ekwueme’s condition for insidious propaganda, showing that nothing is sacred to them. 2) Journalist attacked by security men, yet again, showing that nothing is sacred to them.https://t.co/laKQK1JxtS — Chxta (@Chxta) November 13, 2017 Buhari the 419 President. Wants to profit from someone’s misfortune. Claiming credit for what is statutorily former VP Ekwueme’s entitlement pic.twitter.com/tHCM5mspjn — Babasola Kuti (@SKSolaKuti) November 3, 2017 Following an intense backlash on social media, the government sent the newly appointed secretary to the government of the federation, Boss Mustapha to visit Dr. Ekwueme in the hospital where he is being treated for what the family say is a chest infection. According to Garba Shehu, one of the spokespersons of the president,  “Mustapha has conveyed President Muhammadu Buhari’s goodwill message to former Vice-President, Dr Alex Ekwueme in a London hospital”. The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha has conveyed President Muhammadu Buhari’s goodwill message to former Vice-President, Dr Alex Ekwueme in a London hospital. pic.twitter.com/FxUdNLH4O6 — Garba Shehu (@GarShehu) November 13, 2017 He again, tried to remind Nigerians that Ekwueme was taken in an air ambulance to London on Buhari’s approval. But he was curiously silent on this matter of the federal government saying it cannot pay the ailing statesman’s medical expenses. The presidency says that Mr. Mustapha was in London before Ekwueme’s arrival. “Mr Mustapha told the Ekwueme family that the President and all Nigerians are praying for the speedy recovery of the elder statesman, adding that he believed that the doctors were doing their best,” Garba wrote on Twitter on Monday, November 13, 2017. The SGF, who was in London before Dr Ekwueme’s arrival, was received by his spouse, Mrs Helen Ekwueme on behalf of the Ekwueme family. — Garba Shehu (@GarShehu) November 13, 2017 Equally worrisome is the revelation that Dr. Ekwueme’s entitlement as a former vice president has been withheld since 2015 when Buhari came back to power. The 2d Republic vice president was removed from office in a 1984 coup by General Muhammadu Buhari. Ekwueme, who was vice president, was jailed in a prison for over two years while his president, Shehu Shagari, a Muslim from the North of Nigeria, was kept under house arrest in his palatial home in Sokoto.

‘Osinbajo, Stop Attacking Christians To Prove Loyalty To Buhari’ – CAN

Olasupo Ayokunle, the national president of the Christian Association of Nigeria, replies Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on his constant attacks on the Christian community in the country and recent attempts to dismiss Islamisation plot of the Muhammadu Buhari regime. In a statement, e-mailed to The Trent on Wednesday, November 1, 2017, personally signed by Reverend Ayokunle, the CAN president restated the evidence of a move by Islamists in government to Islamise Nigeria and called on Professor Osinbajo to educate himself or stop proving his loyalty to Buhari by slamming Christians in the country. Below is the statement: I think I have to speak at last in response to what His Excellency, the VP, Prof Oshinbajo said which seemed to be a misunderstanding of CAN leadership’s position on the collaborative grand plan to Islamize Nigeria. First of all, his statement may be based on his lack of enough facts on the subject matter of the grand plan of Islamization of Africa and Nigeria in particular in which the government of Nigeria has been collaborating with OIC & Islam in Africa Organization. The OIC met in London in 1983 with a follow up meeting in Nigeria in 1989 and with a communique to Islamize Africa with Nigeria capturing a great attention. You can read this in Wikipedia or browse for OIC’s Conference in London, 1983 and Abuja Declaration of 1989. Nigeria was later made an observer member of the body (OIC) through Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida. Later under Abacha, a Muslim again, we were made full member in total violation of the constitution that the nation is secular and our government should not be religiously partisan. Thereafter, different administrations in Nigeria started drawing us into joining different Islamic organizations in keeping with the resolutions of OIC & Islam in Africa Organization(IAO). (See their communique tagged ‘Abuja Declaration of 1989).’ We are not opposed to Islamic Evangelism by the Muslims if it has no violence in it as we Christians are also been evangelizing the nation through peaceful means of revivals and gospel rallies. But we are opposed to our government shifting attention to Islamic resolutions of Islamization by making Nigeria, a non-Islamic Republic a member of Islamic Organizations. It is a tacit support for Islamization. Let our VP who is a constitutional lawyer address that and do something about it. Apart from this, why did the government of Nigeria in the past donate twenty one billion dollars to Islam in Africa Organization? Let the VP cross-check whether that was true or not and give us an answer. This fact is on Net and can be verified. Is that not as well tacit support for Islamization? In the VP’s latest address in Lagos, he did not tell us why government of Nigeria started to be active in Islamic Alliances and organizations in total violation of the constitution. It is not about the benefit we would derive from Sukkuk Bond or lack of it, it is about the constitutionality of it. Is it constitutional? Was it not part of the resolutions of OIC & IAO that adoption of Islamic sharia compliant financial system should be vigorously pursued for all governments in Africa? Furthermore, why has the present government joined Islamic Military Alliance against terrorism? Are we an Islamic nation? Can’t we fight terrorism without joining Islamic coalition? Why is the government careless about heating up the polity? Can’t the government be more circumspect in a multi-religious nation. Is the government’s participation in Islamic Sports Federation not part of what OIC set up to Islamize many countries?Why was Nigeria led into membership? Who gave the approval and who was consulted before participation? Muslims in Nigeria can be part of all the above but not the Nigerian government. Enough is enough! I know the VP must satisfy his principal that he is loyal but that is not at the expense of our religious freedom and violation of the constitution. If CAN has its problem, there is no organization without its problems, that will be addressed differently. As a Christian too and member of CAN, let him be more feasible in offering his on positive contributions to CAN but not on the pages of newspapers. We love Nigeria and we are shouting that government must do something to constant attacks of Christians and predominantly Christian communities all over the nation. Why has this government not arrested the murderous herdsmen killing and maiming people in communities? Why didn’t the VP address this? The nation deserves more from him!

Explosive Pension Looter Maina’s Audio Confession Going Viral [LISTEN, TRANSCRIPT]

The latest scandal that erupted in the Muhammadu Buhari regime over the recall and promotion of indicted pension looter, Abdulrasheed Maina, is a gift that gives on giving with new twists on each passing day. The latest addition to this unfolding story is an audio recording said to be made by Maina telling his own story to someone who called and said he was calling from Unity Fountain in Abuja. There’s no way of authenticating this audio recording because the former pensions reform chairman is now a fugitive again, following a brief stint at the Ministry of Interior. The audio, obtained by The Trent on Sunday, October 22, 2017 has now been transcribed. In the audio, the person who identified as the man at the centre of a N169 billion pensions fraud uncovered under the administration of Goodluck Jonathan claims innocence of all charges and rather, points his fingers in the direction of almost everybody else. Below is the transcription of the audio recording which you can listen to below: I did not take one kobo and nobody has given me one kobo in Nigeria. Nobody has ever given me a budget. Nobody has given our office N10, the office of head of service has always been in charge of our office. Our task force includes 15 officers from EFCC, 15 officers from ICPC, 4 officers from SSS, 2 officers from NIA, 15 officers from Head of Service, 3 officers from Accountant General, 3 officers from Auditor General’s office, 2 officers from Attorney General’s office and Public Complaints Commission and Rep from National Association of Nigerian pensioners. I was only the head anything that happened in that office must be endorsed by all this agencies before it is brought to me to endorse. So why is that people are calling my name Maina, Maina they are not calling that team. The reason is because I refused to bend backwards. No1, I want the Nigerian people to know, nobody has ever given me a budget of N10. If there’s anybody in the National Assembly or budget office or the ministry of finance that has ever given me N10, let them produce that N10 and show Nigerian people and say this is the amount of money we appropriated to the team to Maina to handle, let them show Nigerians. Instead I am the one, me and my team who recovered N282 billion and the Minister of Finance put it in Central Bank. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala she’s alive and present emir of Kano was the CBN Governor. I was not a signatory to the account, former accountant general and the minister of finance, these were the signatories tothis account. This money I have not seen this money in cash , I have only seen it in the pages of the newspapers, so how did I come across this money? If there’s anybody who knows how money entered my hand or how govt came and gave me money let them come and show. People are talking in the papers and all this is because of the following: (1) My team was asked to restructure the police pensions office. We went to the police pensions office and found out they were taking N300m from the account every day and I reported to the minister of finance and told her there is a certain account where there’s N24 billion for police pension arrears , she said yes. I told her but that money is not being used to pay police pensioners, it is being used to remove N300m daily and these are the people who are removing the money and the matter was referred to the EFCC for investigation and the ICPC for investigation. (2) They were giving police pension N1.5 billion every month as monthly pension and we went and found out that the actual amount was N488 million , that means they had been stealing that N1 billion every month for so long, definitely I have to have enemies. We asked the minister of finance to stop this money from being paid to this people. This N24b where they have been stealing N300m everyday I have proof to show Nigerians, I have the check stubs. I have shown Nigerians these stubs when I was on AIT, everybody has seen how they have been stealing this money. We went and did biometric exercise ,all the offices that I mentioned took part in the biometric exervise in Nigeria , EFCC, ICPC, SSS, NIA , Acct Generals office , Public complaints commission, Ministry of Finance office, Head of Service office. All this offices took part in the biometric enrollment exercise. Why then is the name Maina being called, I am not the only person in the team nor do I approve anything for the team. It is only Head of service and minister of finance who approve money for the team. And they can go and ask minister of finance or head of service if they have approved N1 to Maina. We never had an account or operated an account . All this people who stole money are the ones giving money to the media people to rubbish my name. They are rubbishing my name because they know if Maina is around ,Maina will reveal a lot of things. We blocked leakages in government we were able to save the government billions of naira. We were able to create an e-pension management system. We said all this verifications where pensioners are dying should stop, we created the e-pension management system. We gave pensioners e – smart cards where a pensioner will verify himself at his own convenience. Every month the pensioner will go to his LGA and slot in his card in a machine and the system will verify him, there is no need for a pensioner to go and line up and die because of verification. Also govt was going to be paid N4b from that. This is police pension I am telling you. Coming back to Head of service pension, we came and did biometrics , people are saying we went to do biometrics abroad, there are no pensioners abroad. In New York alone we have 360 pensioners, these are former ambassadors and members of the diplomatic community , they are there living in the US. We found out that the Head of Service payroll was N5.12b every month but the actual amount was N825m. So why should Maina go and tell the minister of finance to stop spending N5b, that was my crime, that was the big crime I did , because this money is being shared all over. It was when we were doing all this, the senate found out that there’s money in pensions and there is a team investigating and the team has recovered so much. Those people who stole and are being prosecuted distributed money to the media to spoil my name. I don’t have the money to buy the media because I don’t have money. And now they are spoiling my name. Now when I was coming out from the President’s office , where I went with the minister of finance to discuss these monies that have been paid. When I came out at 9o’clock my car was shot 3 times , apparently some people wanted to assassinate me.They tried to assassinate me so that they can shut my mouth up. After they tried to assassinate me they sent me a txt message. Thanks to the car because by then i had complained to the President of suspicious txt messages and movements around my house, he asked the Chief Security to give me a bullet proof car for the meantime. I was inside that bullet proof car when they shot, the car is inside the villa now because it still has the windows shattered by the bullets, I have the pictures and everybody in Nigeria knew it. The same people sent me a txt message the following day that they will come and kill me whether or not they miss this opportunity , unless I stop this work I am doing. If I stop the work they said I am free. I sent this text message to headquarters of the police and the the SSS. I got a reply by the Police signed by the present IG, it was the IG who replied me saying , ” we have seen your letter about the threat to your life and we are investigating. I have a copy of that letter. Nobody has done anything about it but this present IG tried. Nobody did anything about it so I had to go under, I had to hide myself because i was going to be killed. If I am killed Nigerians will just say the thief has been killed nobody will know the truth. The senate was saying I refused to come and honour their invitation then they asked for my arrest. So I took the senate to court. I am a civil servant. I saved the government so much money and no one has given a budget of one naira and people are saying I stole money. All these things are happening and nobody is helping me. The Head of service is not helping me and I said why should I be a lone soldier so i went to court. If I come out and testify half of this people will run away and leave Nigeria that is why I am being persecuted. The former President is alive, the former minister of Finance is alive let them tell us, where is the money Maina recovered? How can they say there’s no money to pay pensioners. It was during my time we got approval for 53% pension increase, this was money we recovered. We recovered cash, N282 billion, which the minister of finance deposited in the central bank. Also because of the information I gave security agencies, we were able to recover N1.6 trillion from the pension thieves. The two security agencies did a good job. The National Assembly are saying I stole money because the first day I attended hearing. The pension thieves in Kuje were brought into the Senate and were given coffee, they were being treated like kings, while me and Lamorde were being accused, we were in the dock. I want all the Nigerian pensioners to know that I fought for 53% increase, why are we now talking about 33% and people are saying i should keep quiet. What have I done!? The police pension they claimed that time was N1.5 billion monthly but the actual amount was N488 million. Also they collected N24 billion that they want to pay pensioners arrears. Ask Police pensioners have they being paid arrears NO!!!! Instead after they collected the N24 billion they went and opened an account in a bank in Lagos.

There’s No Plot To Impeach Governor Udom Emmanuel – Lawmaker

Online reports of a purported plot to impeach Governor Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State, by the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly has been dismissed as a hoax by Idongesit Ituen, a lawmaker in the oil-rich state. According to Prince Ituen, who represents Itu State Constituency at the House of Assembly, the reports are “manufactured by mischief makers” with the intention of createing unnecessary political distraction in the polity. Ituen, who is also the house committee chairman on works and transport, made these remarks at a session with journalists on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 the eve of his 40th birthday. Prince Ituen while reacting to questions on a news story published by a state based tabloid, The Guide Newspaper, alleging that, the commissioner for works, Ephraim Inyangeyen, in league with members of the State Legislature, are plotting the impeachment of the governor, said the allegation is unfounded, preposterous and laughable. The Itu born Lawmaker maintained that, Governor Udom Emmanuel cannot be impeached by the State House of Assembly, having not committed any impeachable offences, nor any such matter brought or muted against him from any quarters whatsoever and stressed that, the State Legislature have absolute confidence in the vision and leadership potential of Governor Udom Emmanuel. Describing the current Assembly as proactive and progressive, Prince Ituen commended the Speaker of the AKHA, Rt. Hon. Barrister Onofiok Luke for the what he said, is the firm, open and dynamic leadership of the State Legislature, which has resulted in the cordial collaboration with the other arms of government to deliver good governance and sustainable development of the state. Prince Ituen averred that, according to scripture, a throne is established by righteousness, arguing that, both Governor Udom Emmanuel and Barrister Onofiok Luke qualify as God fearing and faithful leaders, are rest assured that, they will complete their tenure. On the allegation against Mr Inyangeyen as sponsoring the alleged plot to impeach Governor Udom Emmanuel, Prince Ituen said, such blackmail is dead on arrival. He explained that, some disgruntled persons are behind such smear campaigns to score cheap political goals, regretting that, sometimes even highly placed officials engage the service of blackmailers in desperate attempts to tarnish the hard won reputation of their perceived or imaginary political rivals. Prince Ituen exonerated Commissioner Inyangeyen from such fictional plot, insisting that he is a fiercely loyal and dependable aide of Governor Udom Emmanuel, whose passion for service is excellent. On his fortieth birthday, Prince Ituen thanked God Almighty for being gracious to him and sparing his life. He said, he remains more determined than ever to work hard for the betterment of his constituents and Akwa Ibom State. Additional reports by Calabar Reporters.

BREAKING: Boko Haram Leader, Shekau’s Wife Killed In Airstrike

Mallama Fitdasi, a wife of Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram has been killed in an airstrike near Konduga in Borno State, a statement from the Nigerian Air Force says. The statement, e-mailed to The Trent on Wednesday, October 25, 2017, signed by Olatokunbo Adesanya, a spokesperson of the Nigerian Air Force, revealed that Fitdasi was co-ordinating a meeting with her husband and other terrorists at the location when she was killed. “Human Intelligence indicates that the wife of the leader of the Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) Organization, Mallama Fitdasi, appeared to have been killed in recent successful airstrikes on DURWAWA settlement on the outskirts of URGA, near KONDUGA,” Air Commodore Adesanya said in the statement. “Mallama Fitdasi was reported to have been representing her husband in a coordinating meeting with other terrorists at the location of the airstrikes.” “It is recalled that the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) had reported the successful aerial attack of a large number of Boko Haram terrorists at DURWAWA on 19 October 2017. “Battle Damage Assessment had indeed revealed that the aerial attack set off a fire, causing damage to the BHT structures within the settlement and neutralized most of the BHTs with a few of them fleeing the location. “Efforts are ongoing to confirm the reported killing of Shekau’s wife, alongside other Boko Haram terrorists,” the statement ended. Buhari Defeats Boko Haram? Late December 2016, President Muhammadu Buhari declared victory over the Islamist terrorist group after Nigerian troops announced that they have recaptured Camp Zero in Sambisa forest, the base of the deadliest terrorist group in the world. The Nigerian Army later presented the president with the flag belonging to the terrorist group in a “mission accomplished” ceremony. Since the declaration a week ahead of Christmas Day 2016, Boko Haram has launched a number of deadly attacks in the North Eastern region of the country where the terrorists have murdered at least 50,000 since they began their campaign to establish an Islamic caliphate in the country.

EFCC Storm $2 Million Abuja Mansion Of N165 Billion Fugitive Pensions Looter, Maina

Police officers attached to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Monday, October 23, 2017 stormed a mansion belonging to the wanted Abdulrasheed Maina. Mr Maina has been on the anti-graft commission’s wanted list for about two years. He was dismissed in 2013 during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan by the Federal Civil Service Commission following a recommendation by the Office of the Head of Service. He was accused of massive pension fraud scheme amounting to more than N165 billion. Premium Times reports that Police officers stormed the building located at No. 10 Hamisu Musa Road, Jabi, Abuja, around 3:40 p.m. giving cover to an operative in mufti who was marking the house in red. The building is believed to have been bought for $2 million. Another of Mr. Maina’s houses located at No. 12, Road 11, Kado Estate is also billed for similar exercise. The whereabouts of the embattled civil servant is yet known. Backlash:  Buhari Caves Sacks Maina Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has caved to public pressure and ordered the immediate disengagement of EFCC wanted Abdulrasheed Maina from the civil service.

PMB orders immediate disengagement of Mr Abdulrasheed Maina from service. Asks for full report on circumstances of his recall. — Femi Adesina (@FemAdesina) October 23, 2017 Fugitive Pensions Looter, Maina Recalled and Promoted On Sunday, February 17, 2013, a fugitive fled from Nigeria to escape arrest by the police and other security agents on his trail. Alhaji Abdulrasheed Maina was reported to have fled to Saudi Arabia, and then settled in the United Arab Emirates following an arrest warrant issued against him by the Senate, and the decision of the Presidency at the time, to discipline him for absconding from his duty post without permission. Upon arrival in the UAE, Maina began to make frantic efforts to seek out influential people in Nigeria to intercede on his behalf. Maina had fled the country, following a pension scam involving several billions of naira stolen from retired police officers. In 2010, Maina had been redeployed from the then Ministry of Internal Affairs by the Goodluck Jonathan administration to sanitize a corrupt pension system. However, scandal broke in February 2012 when Maina was accused of leading a massive pension fraud scheme amounting to more than N100 billion. Based on the allegations against him, Maina was invited by the Senate Joint Committee on Public Service and Establishment and State and Local Government Administration. The Senate after completion of its investigation issued a Warrant of Arrest against Maina. Ignoring the panel, Maina sued the Senate and the then Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, and then went into hiding after being declared wanted by the police. Following his disappearance, Maina was dismissed by the Head of Service for absconding from duty and attempting to evade arrest, and was charged to court. On July 21, 2015, he was mentioned by the EFCC as a major accomplice in a 24-count charge filed against Stephen Oronsaye and two others before a Federal High Court bordering on procurement fraud and obtaining by false pretence. While Oronsaye and the two other accused were in court and pleaded not guilty to the charge, the EFCC said Maina was still at large. Fugitive recalled Three days ago, online news site, Premium Times, broke the news that Abdulrasheed Maina had been secretly reinstated into the civil service. Multiple sources confirmed that Maina, who is still wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), was secretly recalled and promoted to the position of director in charge of Human Resources in the Ministry of Interior. This new position was a step ahead of the position he held before he was appointed to chair the pension task force. The news of the reinstatement first filtered through a congratulatory message for Mr. Maina by a group called League of Civil Society Organisations which commended the federal government for the reinstatement. A notice on the EFCC’s website reads: The public is hereby notified that Abdulrasheed Abdullahi Maina, former Chairman of Pension Reform Task Team (PRTT), whose photograph appears above, is wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for offences bordering on Procurement Fraud and Obtaining by False Pretence. Dark complexioned Maina is allegedly complicit in the over N 2 billion Pensions Biometric Scam in the office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation. He remains at large, after charges were filed against his accomplices. Despite this, the Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, in a statement by his press secretary, Ehisienmen Osaigbovo, confirmed that Maina is now in charge of the Human Resources Department of the ministry. Dambazau however denied responsibility for Mr. Maina’s recall to the service. The statement explained that Maina “was posted few days ago to the Ministry of Interior by the Office of the Head of Service on an Acting capacity to fill a vacancy created following the retirement of the Director heading the Human Resources Department in the Ministry”. Dambazau’s statement said that the Office of the Head of Service of the Federation and the Federal Civil Service Commission were responsible for Maina’s recall, and that the two bodies are responsible for “issues relating to Discipline, Employment, Re-engagement, Posting, Promotion and Retirements of Federal Civil Servants.” The statement did not say if Dambazau was aware that Maina is still a fugitive wanted by the EFCC. “It is understood that Maina’s last posting was with the Ministry of Interior, and that is probably why he was re-posted back to the Ministry,” the statement added.

The Explosion Of Online Gaming In Africa

he online casino and gaming sphere is a multi-billion, if not a multi-trillion pound industry. Gaming and casinos were huge before the Internet came a long, but when the World Wide Web was introduced to the industry, it took it to a whole new level. Online casinos and sports betting sites, as well as apps, are used constantly by people from all over the world but one area where things are rapidly changing is Africa. In fact, experts suggest that Africa is the place where the industry is currently growing the fastest. Many would be forgiven for thinking that sports betting and gambling was the new “in thing” in Africa but it’s been around for a very long time already. It’s the fact that things remained more traditional for a long time and it’s only recently that the modern forms such as online gaming and betting have begun to gain popularity. African nations such as Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda and Tanzania are already seen as key players in the rapid growth that shows no signs of slowing down. Whereas elsewhere the majority were introduced to online casino and sports betting operators like Unibet through the use of a desktop computer, with many now migrating over to play on smartphones; in Africa it seems that the desktop phase has been sidestepped with the rapid growth in large down to smartphone use alone. The reason for the recent explosion of online gaming differs from a lot of other places though. In the case of Africa, locals visiting online sports betting and casino operators, do so not only because they love their sports and games; but it is also viewed as a real way of winning big and thus improving ones economic position. This is especially attractive to the younger generation of gamblers who are also more adept at using smartphones; together with the fact that it is easier and more affordable to have a mobile device as opposed to a laptop or desktop machine. There are of course various land based casinos and sports betting opportunities spread across Africa and they are a huge draw for tourist from all over the world due to the fact that they’re set in luxurious resorts. This is also one of the reasons why online gaming has become so popular with locals. They appeal more to tourists than they do to your everyday run of the mill local and the majority of African’s prefer the convenience and ease of being able to enjoy their sports betting and favourite casino games at a few touches on their smartphone screen. The explosion of online gaming has also been a huge boost to the African governments too. They’re literally raking in the cash and this money can then be used in other areas to improve the countries on the whole. It can go into improving tourism which will then increase the profile of the country and the economy too. So African nations have massively benefited from the surge provided through the amount of people enjoying online gaming on a regular basis.
