Paul Ryan’s speech in 3 words

 

By Sally Kohn

FoxNews.com

Aug. 29, 2012: Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan addresses the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. (AP)

1. Dazzling

At least a quarter of Americans still don’t know who Paul Ryan is, and only about half who know and have an opinion of him view him favorably.

So, Ryan’s primary job tonight was to introduce himself and make himself seem likeable, and he did that well. The personal parts of the speech were very personally delivered, especially the touching parts where Ryan talked about his father and mother and their roles in his life. And at the end of the speech, when Ryan cheered the crowd to its feet, he showed an energy and enthusiasm that’s what voters want in leaders and what Republicans have been desperately lacking in this campaign.

To anyone watching Ryan’s speech who hasn’t been paying much attention to the ins and outs and accusations of the campaign, I suspect Ryan came across as a smart, passionate and all-around nice guy — the sort of guy you can imagine having a friendly chat with while watching your kids play soccer together. And for a lot of voters, what matters isn’t what candidates have done or what they promise to do —it’s personality. On this measure, Mitt Romney has been catastrophically struggling and with his speech, Ryan humanized himself and presumably by extension, the top of the ticket.

2. Deceiving

On the other hand, to anyone paying the slightest bit of attention to facts, Ryan’s speech was an apparent attempt to set the world record for the greatest number of blatant lies and misrepresentations slipped into a single political speech. On this measure, while it was Romney who ran the Olympics, Ryan earned the gold.

The good news is that the Romney-Ryan campaign has likely created dozens of new jobs among the legions of additional fact checkers that media outlets are rushing to hire to sift through the mountain of cow dung that flowed from Ryan’s mouth. Said fact checkers have already condemned certain arguments that Ryan still irresponsibly repeated.

Fact: While Ryan tried to pin the downgrade of the United States’ credit rating on spending under President Obama, the credit rating was actually downgraded because Republicans threatened not to raise the debt ceiling.

Fact: While Ryan blamed President Obama for the shut down of a GM plant in Janesville, Wisconsin, the plant was actually closed under President George W. Bush. Ryan actually asked for federal spending to save the plant, while Romney has criticized the auto industry bailout that President Obama ultimately enacted to prevent other plants from closing.

Fact: Though Ryan insisted that President Obama wants to give all the credit for private sector success to government, that isn’t what the president said. Period.

Fact: Though Paul Ryan accused President Obama of taking $716 billion out of Medicare, the fact is that that amount was savings in Medicare reimbursement rates (which, incidentally, save Medicare recipients out-of-pocket costs, too) and Ryan himself embraced these savings in his budget plan.

Elections should be about competing based on your record in the past and your vision for the future, not competing to see who can get away with the most lies and distortions without voters noticing or bother to care. Both parties should hold themselves to that standard. Republicans should be ashamed that there was even one misrepresentation in Ryan’s speech but sadly, there were many.

3. Distracting

And then there’s what Ryan didn’t talk about.

Ryan didn’t mention his extremist stance on banning all abortions with no exception for rape or incest, a stance that is out of touch with 75% of American voters.

Ryan didn’t mention his previous plan to hand over Social Security to Wall Street.

Ryan didn’t mention his numerous votes to raise spending and balloon the deficit when George W. Bush was president.

Ryan didn’t mention how his budget would eviscerate programs that help the poor and raise taxes on 95% of Americans in order to cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires even further and increase — yes, increase —the deficit.

These aspects of Ryan’s resume and ideology are sticky to say the least. He would have been wise to tackle them head on and try and explain them away in his first real introduction to voters. But instead of Ryan airing his own dirty laundry, Democrats will get the chance.

At the end of his speech, Ryan quoted his dad, who used to say to him, “”Son. You have a choice: You can be part of the problem, or you can be part of the solution.”

Ryan may have helped solve some of the likeability problems facing Romney, but ultimately by trying to deceive voters about basic facts and trying to distract voters from his own record, Ryan’s speech caused a much larger problem for himself and his running mate.

Five Australian soldiers killed in Afghan incidents

KABUL/CANBERRA |
(Reuters) – Australia suffered its worst combat losses since the Vietnam War when five troops were killed in Afghanistan, officials said on Thursday, prompting Prime Minister Julia Gillard to return home early from a regional Pacific leaders’ conference.

Officials from the Australian Defence Force and the NATO-led coalition said three Australians had been killed in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday by an Afghan wearing a soldier’s uniform, bringing to 45 the number of NATO-led coalition troops killed in rogue shootings this year.

Australian officials later announced another two troops had died in a helicopter crash in the south on Thursday.

“This is news so truly shocking that it’s going to feel for many Australians like a physical blow,” an emotional Gillard told reporters in the Cook Islands, where she was attending a forum of Pacific islands leaders.

Gillard said she would cut short her visit and return to Australia later on Thursday for briefings on the deaths.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is due to lead a U.S. government team to the 16-member forum from Friday.

The alarming rise in the number of rogue shootings and other attacks has increased pressure on coalition members to fast-track withdrawal plans.

Under the current timetable, most foreign combat troops are due to leave Afghanistan by the end of 2014, handing security responsibility to their Afghan counterparts.

Opinion polls in Australia say Australians overwhelmingly want their troops out of Afghanistan, although Gillard ruled out any early exit.

“We are there for a purpose and we will see that purpose through,” Gillard said.

Australia’s neighbor New Zealand said last week it would accelerate the withdrawal of its troops after three more were killed by a roadside bomb.

HUNT

Australian and Afghan forces are hunting for a man in an Afghan army uniform who shot and killed the three Australian soldiers at a patrol base in Uruzgan province, where around 1,500 Australian troops are based.

Fifteen coalition troops have been killed in similar incidents this month alone.

Australian Defence Force Air Marshal Mark Binskin told reporters in Canberra the gunman used an automatic weapon at close range.

Binskin said the other two Australians, both special forces soldiers, were killed when their helicopter was attempting to land during an operation in neighboring Helmand province.

He said there was no sign the accident was caused by enemy action but refused to give further details.

The deaths marked Australia’s worst day in the war in Afghanistan, which it joined in late 2001. A total of 38 Australian troops have been killed there since the war began.

NATO-led forces have increased security to try to counter the increase in insider shootings, including requiring soldiers to carry loaded weapons at all times on bases.

U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Martin Dempsey visited Kabul last week to discuss the worrying increase in rogue shootings. U.S. President Barack Obama also expressed his “deep concern” over the insider attacks.

The Taliban have claimed responsibility for many of the incidents as evidence of their ability to infiltrate Afghan security forces, raising worrying questions about the readiness of Afghan forces to take over.

Afghanistan’s government said last week it would re-examine the files of 350,000 soldiers and police to help curb rogue shootings of NATO personnel.

Former Republic Governor Backs Obama Will Speak to Democrats

Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist’s surprise endorsement of President Barack Obama suggests the Republican-turned-independent may be positioning himself to try to win back his old job as a Democrat, The Miami Herald reported Monday.
In an op-ed column in Sunday’s Tampa Bay Times, Crist hailed Obama as “the right leader for our times” and said the president “has a strong record of doing what is best for America and Florida.”

Meanwhile, CNN reported that Crist will speak at the Democratic National Convention next month in Charlotte.
Crist, who once called himself a “Reagan Republican” and a “Jeb Bush Republican,” appears to be giving himself a political makeover with an eye to positioning himself to challenge incumbent GOP Gov. Rick Scott in 2014, the Herald said.
A one-term Florida governor, Crist saw his career tank in 2010 when he left the Republican Party and ran for the U.S. Senate as an independent. He lost to Republican Marco Rubio.
ABC’s OTUS blog reported that a Democratic official said Crist’s convention speech would be a testament to the event’s spirit of openness and bipartisanship.
“Gov. Crist can personally speak to this, and contrast the president’s vision with Mitt Romney’s, which caters to the most extreme elements of the Republican Party and undermines the middle class,” the anonymous official said, according to ABC.
Crist’s endorsement of Obama emphasized those themes, criticizing the Republican Party for catering to “an element so far to the extreme right on issues important to women, immigrants, seniors and students that they’ve proven incapable of governing for the people.”
Lenny Curry, chairman of the Florida Republican Party, condemned Crist’s endorsement of Obama, which came on the eve of the Republican convention, as “political opportunism, plain and simple.”

US Ambassador to Nigeria Commissions Mega Fish Project at CRARN Centre

Ambassador Terence McCulley and Consul General Jeffrey Hawkins cutting the Fish Project tape at CRARN Centre

The United State Ambassador to Nigeria , Mr. Terence McCulley, on Saturday
commissioned an ultra modern fish project at Child’s Right and
Rehabilitation Network (CRARN) Centre, Ikot Afaha in Eket, the major oil
city of Akwa Ibom State in Nigeria.

Speaking at the commissioning ceremony, Ambassador McCully stated that the
US government was prepared to support groups and organisation that work
towards enhancing the quality of lives of the vulnerable and the less
privileged members of the society.

“We will continue to give our support to organisations and community that
pay greater attention to alleviating poverty in the midst of its community
and gear up quality lives of the under privileged people, the women and
mostly children who need helping hands, who crave for support and comfort.”

The Ambassador commended CRARN for paying greater attention to the
underprivileged children and women who suffer torture and other forms of
horrendous abuses in the hands of those who owe them a duty of protection
and love. He acknowledged that his office had been following the good work
of CRARN for quite a long time and found it worthy for its support; and

Ambassador Terence McCulley and his team at CRARN Centre Eket

promised to give further assistance to organization and the community.

A community leader and former Eket chapter Chairman of the defunct NPN,
Apostle Okon Harry Ekpuk expressed the community’s deepest appreciation to
the Ambassador and his team for selecting the Eket community as one of the
beneficiaries of their projects. Apostle Ekpuk averred that the fish
project will go a long way in touching the lives of the ordinary people.

“His Excellency, the US Ambassador to Nigeria, let me at this moment

lives of the ordinary people of this community and beyond and we will do
everything humanly possible to protect and sustain it. Our community is a
humane and hospitable one, so our is culture…. ” Ekpuk said

Apostle Ekpuk who spoke glowingly of the good work of CRARN said despite
daunting challenges, the organization was still working hard to save live
of children. He urged CRARN to continue with its services to humanity for
which he said holds abundant, nature and God’s reward.

huge asset to world and entire human race, given its philosophy, advocacy
work and humanitarian record of saving and indeed transformation of
children lives and the aged ones beyond its scope of operation.”

In his response, the principal attorney to CRARN, Mr Pius Madaki expressed
gratitude to the Ambassador for citing a project of such magnitude at the
CRARN Children Centre; and expressed the willingness of the organisation
to train the community to replicate it in various communities. He said the

self-reliant.

” It is my strongest belief that this project will touch the lives of the
disadvantage children, foster parents, the ordinary people and the
community towards becoming self-reliant…” Madaki asserts

Neil Armstrong, first man on the moon, dies

(CNN) – Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, has died, his family said Saturday. He was 82.

“We are heartbroken to share the news that Neil Armstrong has passed away following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures,” Armstrong’s family said in a statement.

Armstrong underwent heart surgery this month.

“While we mourn the loss of a very good man, we also celebrate his remarkable life and hope that it serves as an example to young people around the world to work hard to make their dreams come true, to be willing to explore and push the limits, and to selflessly serve a cause greater than themselves,” his family said.

Armstrong gives rare interview to Australian accountant

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden put Armstrong’s death in perspective.

“As long as there are history books, Neil Armstrong will be included in them,” he said. “As we enter this next era of space exploration, we do so standing on the shoulders of Neil Armstrong. We mourn the passing of a friend, fellow astronaut and true American hero.”

Armstrong flew into space twice. He made his first journey in 1966 as commander of the Gemini 8 mission, which nearly ended in disaster.

Armstrong kept his cool and brought the spacecraft home safely after a thruster rocket malfunctioned and caused it to spin wildly out of control.

During his next space trip in July 1969, Armstrong and fellow astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins blasted off in Apollo 11 on a nearly 250,000-mile journey to the moon that went down in the history books.
It took them four days to reach their destination.

Time: Life up close with Apollo 11

The world watched and waited as the lunar module “Eagle” separated from the command module and began its descent.

Then came the words from Armstrong: “Tranquility Base here, the Eagle has landed.”

About six and a half hours later at 10:56 p.m. ET on July 20, 1969, Armstrong, at age 38, became the first person to set foot on the moon.

He uttered the now-famous phrase: “That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.”

The quote was originally recorded without the “a,” which was picked up by voice recognition software many years later.

Armstrong was on the moon’s surface for two hours and 32 minutes and Aldrin, who followed him, spent about 15 minutes less than that.

The two astronauts set up an American flag, scooped up moon rocks and set up scientific experiments before returning to the main spacecraft.

All three returned home to a hero’s welcome, and none ever returned to space.
The moon landing was a major victory for the United States, which at the height of the Cold War in 1961 committed itself to landing a man on the moon and returning him safely before the decade was out.

It was also a defining moment for the world. The launch and landing were broadcast on live TV and countless people watched in amazement as Armstrong walked on the moon.

“I remember very clearly being an 8-year-old kid and watching the TV … I remember even as a kid thinking, ‘Wow, the world just changed,’” said astronaut Leroy Chiao. “And then hours later watching Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin take the very first step of any humans on another planetary body. That kind of flipped the switch for me in my head. I said, ‘That’s what I want to do, I want to be an astronaut.’”

Tributes to Armstrong — who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1969, the highest award offered to a U.S. civilian — poured in as word of his death spread.

The untold story of Apollo 11

“Neil was among the greatest of American heroes — not just of his time, but of all time,” said President Barack Obama. “When he and his fellow crew members lifted off aboard Apollo 11 in 1969, they carried with them the aspirations of an entire nation. They set out to show the world that the American spirit can see beyond what seems unimaginable — that with enough drive and ingenuity, anything is possible.”

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said the former astronaut “today takes his place in the hall of heroes. With courage unmeasured and unbounded love for his country, he walked where man had never walked before. The moon will miss its first son of earth.”

House Speaker John Boehner, from Ohio, said: “A true hero has returned to the Heavens to which he once flew. Neil Armstrong blazed trails not just for America, but for all of mankind. He inspired generations of boys and girls worldwide not just through his monumental feat, but with the humility and grace with which he carried himself to the end.”

Armstrong was born in Wapakoneta, Ohio, on August 5, 1930. He was interested in flying even as a young boy, earning his pilot’s license at age 16.

Armstrong studied aeronautical engineering and earned degrees from Purdue University and University of Southern California. He served in the Navy, and flew 78 combat missions during the Korean War.

“He was the best, and I will miss him terribly,” said Collins, the Apollo 11 command module pilot.

After his historic mission to the moon, Armstrong worked for NASA, coordinating and managing the administration’s research and technology work.

In 1971, he resigned from NASA and taught engineering at the University of Cincinnati for nearly a decade.

While many people are quick to cash in on their 15 minutes of fame, Armstrong largely avoided the public spotlight and chose to lead a quiet, private life with his wife and children.

“He was really an engineer’s engineer — a modest man who was always uncomfortable in his singular role as the first person to set foot on the moon. He understood and appreciated the historic consequences of it and yet was never fully willing to embrace it. He was modest to the point of reclusive. You could call him the J.D. Salinger of the astronaut corps,” said Miles O’Brien, an aviation expert with PBS’ Newshour, formerly of CNN.

“He was a quiet, engaging, wonderful from the Midwest kind of guy. … But when it came to the public exposure that was associated with this amazing accomplishment … he ran from it. And part of it was he felt as if this was an accomplishment of many thousands of people. And it was. He took the lion’s share of the credit and he felt uncomfortable with that,” said O’Brien.

But Armstrong always recognized — in a humble manner — the importance of what he had accomplished.

“Looking back, we were really very privileged to live in that thin slice of history where we changed how man looks at himself and what he might become and where he might go,” Armstrong said.

Agents of Godswill Akpabi Sent to Assassinate Frank Okon and Peter Ataha

By Thompson Essien

Godswill Akpabio-Akwa Ibom State Governor

Engr. Frank Okon-Akpabio’s torn in the flesh

I have just received two different SOS messages from those who are close to Godswill Akpabio that he has dispatched agents to London to assassinate Engineer Frank Okon. Another gentleman reported to be a target of assassination by Akpabio is described to me only as Peter King Ataha. I have no idea who this man is, but he is said to be an airport consultant in Nigeria and is also one of the, if not the strongest, supporters of Frank Okon. I cannot confirm it, but I was also told that Mr. Peter Ataha is either Frank Okon’s financier or is the one who arranges legal funding for Frank.

All efforts to reach Frank Okon have been unsuccessful. Those close to Frank have confirmed that he has a knowledge of the plot and that he is in hiding. Regarding Mr. Peter King Ataha, I have not been able to establish contact with him.

It may be recalled that just before the expected ruling of the pending case between Frank Okon and Godswill Akpabio on July 12, 2012, Frank was receiving several death threats. Reliable sources have confirmed that assassins constantly stalked his house at the time. When the ruling was not issued by Justice Karfarati as expected, Frank finally returned to London and that infuriated his assassins. His house was vandalized and his vehicles and other personal items were destroyed or carted away by the agents of Godswill Akpabio.

I am still collecting information and making contacts on this matter. As soon as new information is received, I will post an update. Meanwhile, if anyone knows how to contact Mr. Peter King Ataha, please contact me through the information posted below. Please let’s work together to save lives from the madness of Godswill Akpabio. Thank you in advance for your help.

Abuja Airport Taxi driver who returned N18 million

Ime Usuah a Abuja Airport Cab Driver from Akwa Ibom State

WITHOUT doubt, the case of Imeh Usua, the toiling taxi driver, who returned the sum of N18 million to the owner who had forgotten it in his taxi cab underlines the point that integrity does, even if sparsely, inhabit the Nigerian landscape. Usua’s example would most likely have been jettisoned by many citizens in his shoes, more so as he did not actively move to possess the money, and he could have denied ever seeing it. The pervasive poverty in the land would have been another excuse for taking the money. The driver deserves the torrents of commendation and awards coming his way, for rejecting greed and thereby returning the money to its owner.

In categorising phenomena, social scientists are wont to use the dominant category. In Nigeria’s socio-economic and political milieu, corruption rules among the ruling elite and it has so permeated the rest of society that observers characterise the country as corrupt; while global rating agencies such as Transparency International have on several occasions rated Nigeria as the most corrupt. Such sweeping slur has no time to look at the other side of the coin – islands of integrity.

Yet they exist in the country, among the high and low in the society. Usua, perhaps ruled by his conscience, reified overtime by parental moral suasion not to covet anything that is not his, decided to return a whooping N18 million to the owner. Given his level of deprivation as a driver of a car for which he had yet to complete payment, reason, or objective realities would have dictated that he took advantage of the cash in his car and swing his fortune to opulence. He defied those basic instincts of man and chose the realm of virtue – integrity.

On his routine trip to and from Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Imeh Usua picked up a foreigner visiting the country. After dropping off the foreigner, he left, not knowing that the foreigner left a fortune in his car forgetfully. When he found out, he reported to his park chairman and took the money back to the owner. That was his act. There was no prevarication and no hesitation. It is exactly the stuff with which fables are made and virtues are spurned. The morally weak would have helped him/herself and perhaps still get caught by the long arms of the law. Usua did not choose the path of infamy. He did not steal it and was not expecting reward for returning the money. Its echoes were heard but soon faded away in a clime that rarely prioritises such virtue but venality.

This would be one deed that refuses to fade into oblivion. Integrity often lies where it is least expected. For Usua’s rare gesture in 2007, five years ago, he is being honoured by sundry organisations. First was the Nigerian Network of Women Exporters (NNWES) who honoured him with its Service Delivery Award. For the latter, it was not too late to ‘recognise sincerity’. Like an avalanche, the National Orientation Agency (NOA) also followed with an award, the agency’s Civic Responsibility Recognition Award for being an icon of ‘Do the Right Thing’ catchphrase. Besides the award, he was also given a cash gift of N30,000. Reportedly, he has also been honoured by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). He deserves these awards.

Indeed, it is not about cash. There is no honour and no money worth more than the virtue that is honesty. Other countries will embark on passionate search for it in abidance to the Nietzschean exhortation to search for the ‘good conscience’ in the labyrinths of depraved modernity. In these parts, people seem not to have a vision of the good, much less searching or recognising it when found. This perhaps explains while it has taken years to recognise the virtue, which Usua exuded in the line of duty while at the same time, the country’s leadership honours those who don’t deserve these honours.

It is good thought that Usua is being recognised. It is never late to do so. Despite these awards, symbolic in essence, the 66 year-old Usua deserves national recognition and should be held aloft as a role model for children. His virtue should be proselytised in schools and religious houses. Nigerians have witnessed in this country how national honour is splashed on persons who scarcely merit it; and the government has, by this act, cheapened national honour and made such worthless. It could be more dignified by recognising individuals like Usua who abound in this country, in all walks of life, in ways that would rebound to the moral amour of a country in need of moral re-armament.

Suspects: we drugged Cynthia before killing her

By Jude Isiguzo and Precious Igbonwelundu

BEFORE a shocked audience of reporters and policemen, two youths, who are cousins, spoke yesterday of how they killed Cynthia, daughter of Major-Gen. Frank Osokogu.
Odera Ezekiel (23) and Okwoma Nwabufor (33), suspects in the alleged murder of the model, are 300 level Accounting undergraduates of the Anambra State University and the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
They said their intention was to rob the late Cynthia whom they believed was coming into Lagos with a large sum of money but when they did not find enough on her, they beat her to death.
According to them, she died as they struggled with her to take all they found on her.
They said when the late Cynthia arrived in Lagos, they checked her into a hotel where she was drugged with 10 tablets of Rohypnol, which they injected into three packs of Ribena juice which they served her in her room.
Ezekiel and Nwabufor met the late Cynthia through a Blackberry group chat. They got close and decided to invite her over, thinking that as a businesswoman she would be coming with alot of cash.
Although the suspects claimed that they did not rape the deceased, pictures taken by the police showed that they may have.
One of the pictures of her private part taken at a close range showed traces of semen on it. Used condoms littered the hotel room, the police said.
Besides, there is a picture showing the suspects tied up the late Cynthia’s mouth and hands. They also chained her legs.
Ezekiel and Nwabufor claimed that the deceased came with a vibrator (sex toy), and that she used the condoms on the toy.
They also confessed to have robbed and raped several other girls.
Narrating his role in the murder, Nwabufor said: “It was a mistake. I invited Cynthia who is my friend, and in the process I hit her and she died in the hotel.
“She came in from Abuja on Sunday morning, July 21. I was trying to dislodge her by tying her and I hit her and she died.
“I tied her because I didn’t want her to know I was escaping from the hotel. We had a mutual agreement for her to come over. I met her on Blackberry group chat, so she was coming to buy stocks for her boutique in Abuja. We had a disagreement. I didn’t rape her; it was the handwork of the devil. I wanted to run because I know I have committed a serious sin against her.
“I thought she had things on her, such as money that I could collect. So, in the process of struggling, I tied her with cellotape and a chain. I also tried to make her not to shout by holding her excessively.
“I was not the only one, it was myself and my cousin who tied her and beat her.
“I invited her and in the process of the disagreement we felt like robbing her of all she has. The condom that was seen in the room is something personally not for her. I used it on the sex toy she has with her. She came with a sex toy, so I inserted the condom on the sex toy and later dropped it there. I didn’t sleep with her.
“If the Police test the condom forensically, it will prove that I didn’t use it on her. She was with me for over 12 hours.
Nwabufor spoke about how the late Cynthia was drugged. He said: “The drug was inside the Ribena I offered her. The Ribena was bought by my cousin and we mixed the drug, Rohypnol, inside the Ribena by injection.
“It was three packets of Ribena but she didn’t finish the three. My cousin said about 10 tablets of Rohypnol was mixed in the three Ribenas. After she took some, she started feeling weak.”
He also spoke about his background and escapades.
“I am a student of UNILAG, 300level Accounting (DLI). This is the first time I’m having a murder case, but I have used the drugs about four times on girls, before Cynthia, but none of the girls died.
“I sleep with them and after they take the drink, they will lose memory of everything that happened to them,” Nwabufor said, adding:
“The hotels I used to go to include Benny, Chelsea, Opera-Mini. And the hotel I took her to was Cosmilla Hotel, (Lakeview Estate, Phase 1, Amuwo-Odofin). I live on Sixth Avenue, but I use Festac because that is where hotels are.
“I am not feeling good about it because I didn’t bargain to kill her, in the first instance. It was just unfortunate and an accident.”
Ezekiel said: “I am a 300level Accountancy student from Anambra State University, Awka. The morning it happened, he (Nwabufor) called me and told me to come to the hotel and help him bind the girl so that we could dispossess her of her belongings, so I came into the hotel that morning and helped him in binding her. In the process of binding the girl, she tried to struggle and we maltreated and rough handled her and she passed on in the process.
“I didn’t hit her with anything; we had no weapon. He (Okwuoma) said he wanted to run with her things.
“I have not been doing it; he just called me. I live at Ojo Barracks, not inside the cantonment. Okwuoma was the one who told me about the drug. He asked me to buy Ribena, which I bought from a shop. I was there when she died because when he told me she was not breathing, I touched the girl and told him she was breathing, then I left the hotel.
“Later, he called me and said he had not heard from her for a long time and had not seen her online. I was in school when they came on Sunday and arrested me”.
Commissioner of Police Umar Manko, who paraded the suspects, said, “On July 22, somewhere in Festac, a young lady was found in a hotel dead, chained and tied. We were worried.
“Somebody called the receptionist of the hotel to say that they should go and take a dead body or “the bastard” away from the room and on getting to the room, the young lady was found dead and her identity not known.
“So the police had to trace the killers through that number that called the receptionist, until we got her passport number from the internet.
“Through the immigration, we were able to link her up and then established her identity. From the footage of the CCTV, we discovered that two young men came into the hotel with the lady, and came out after a while. So, we started from that number and were able to link the young men we saw on the footage of the CCTV.
“They were arrested and they confessed to have killed the young lady. We asked them why and they said they chatted with her on the internet and discovered she was a business woman. So, as she was coming to Lagos to buy her stocks, they felt she would have enough money.
One of them gave her a ticket from Abuja to Lagos and gave her accommodation in that hotel. After injecting a drug inside Ribena, they gave her, it knocked her off and so they decided to go into the business she came for but, unfortunately, they could not find much money on her. They struggled with her before she collapsed and was killed in the process.
“Both suspects are cousins from Anambra State and we are told it was not the first time they have done it but we have not been able to establish vividly if their victims were killed.
“We are trying to go round the other hotels they have used, it is a very long investigation and I think we still have much to uncover but because of insinuations from the press, we felt we won’t keep quiet longer than necessary. That was why we invited the media to parade them,” he said.

CBN to introduces N5, 000 note; to redesign N5, N10, N20 as coins

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on Thursday announced that it is going to introduce N5,000 note into the system.

The faces of three prominent Nigerian female activists are to be used on the new note. They are those of late politician and social mobiliser, Margaret Ekpo (1914 – 2006); late politician and activist Hajia Gambo Sawaba (1933 – 2001) and late politician and women’s right activist Funmilayo Kuti (1900 -1978).

Addressing journalists in Abuja, the governor of the CBN, Sanusi Lamido said that the plan is aimed at enhancing the quality of banknotes, incorporate a more effective feature for the visually impaired as well as reduce cost of production, distribution and disposal of banknotes.
“On the 28 of November 2011, the CBN board considered and approved the new currency structure. It subsequently sought, and on 19 December 2011 obtained, the approval of his excellency the president Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GCFR),” Mr Sanusi said.

“Under new structure the existing denomination of N50, N100, N200, N500 and N1000 will be redesigned with added new security features.

“It is our pleasure to tell you that a new high currency denomination will also be introduced. It is the N5000 note.

“In the same vain, the lower bank notes of N5, N10 and N20 will also be coined.

“Consequently, the Naira currency structure will now be 12. These are six coins and six bank notes denominations.”

The CBN helmsman said that efforts are on top gear to ensure that the redesigned N50 and new N5000 notes are launched early next year.
