Statement from the office of the Vice President on fuel pricing debate

Image
Read the statement below... Fellow Citizens:  I have read the various observations about the fuel pricing regime and the attendant issues generated. All certainly have strong points.   The most important issue of course is how to shield the poor from the worst effects of the policy.  I will hopefully address that in another note.
Permit me an explanation of the policy. First, the real issue  is not a removal of subsidy. At $40 a barrel there isn't much of a subsidy to remove. 
In any event, the President is probably one of the most convinced pro-subsidy advocates. 
What happened is as follows: our local consumption of fuel is almost entirely imported. The NNPC exchanges crude from its joint venture share to provide about 50% of local fuel consumption. The remaining 50% is imported by major and independent marketers. 
These marketers up until three months ago sourced their foreign exchange from the Central Bank of Nigeria at the official rate. However, since late last year, …

Kylie Jenner and Tyga broke up because of too much drama & she felt she was too young to be tied to him

Image
Below is how TMZ reported it today...
Kylie Jenner's just too successful, too young and too hot to be tied down to one man, and that's the main reason she and Tyga are done for good this time. Sources connected with the former couple tell us KJ recently realized she wants to live the single life and soak up the spoils of being an 18-year-old multi-millionaire. That frequently means flying all over the world for appearances, and we're told that didn't sit well with Tyga ... who's focusing on his music.
As one source put it ... she wants to jet set, he wants to chill in a studio -- and they both knew it wouldn't work.
Also, we're told since their mini break last fall ... there's been constant drama over "dumb stuff" -- what to eat, what they say on social media, blah, blah.

As for the model at Mother's Day brunch with Tyga? We're told he admits having a couple models "hanging around," but no serious girlfriends -- and Kylie…

The presidency has replied British Prime minister, David Cameron, over his comment today that Nigeria and Afghanistan were possibly the two most corrupt countries in the world. In a statement released by the Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Shehu Garba, the Federal Government said Cameron's statement is certainly not reflective of President Buhari's work against corruption "This is embarrassing to us, to say the least, given the good work that the President is doing. The eyes of the world are on what is happening here.It(Cameron's statement) is certainly not reflective of the good work that the president is doing. The eyes of the world are on what is happening here. The Prime Minister must be looking at an old snapshot of Nigeria. Things are changing with corruption and everything else. That, we believe is the reason they chose him as a keynote speaker at the pre-summit conference.”‎the statement said

Photo: Criminal gangs kill 9-year-old boy after his parents delayed in paying ransom

Image
The body of a nine-year-old boy was found dumped on the road on Sunday morning, May 8 in Al-Nasiriya town in Wirshiffana district, Libya. Ehab Al-Maedani had been abducted by Wirshiffana criminal gangs for about 10 days before the kidnappers decided to kill him and throw him on the road as his family failed to pay the LYD2,000 ransom they demanded. According to Libya Observer, this criminality by Wirshiffana bandits, who are part of the so-called Tribes Army and loyalists to Gaddafi as well as to the Dignity Operation led by renegade General Khalifa Haftar, is so far unnoticed by the international human rights organisations, such as Human Rights Watch and by the UNSMIL, allowing it to become a hub for bandits and criminals.
