1) Okonjo-Iweala To Be Confirmed As WTO Boss Today

Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala looks set to be confirmed Monday as the first woman and first African leader of the beleaguered World Trade Organization, a near-paralysed institution desperately needing a kick-start.

The WTO has called a special general council meeting at which the former Nigerian finance minister and World Bank veteran is expected to be formally selected as the global trade body’s new director-general.


US President Joe Biden strongly swung behind her candidacy shortly after the only other remaining contender, South Korean Trade Minister Yoo Myung-hee, pulled out.

Senate minority leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to publicly declare that he does not support violent herdsmen.

The Senate minority leader said Buhari should be concerned that a particular set of people were being attributed to crimes all over the country.


Abaribe said: “The President needs to come out and say categorically that he does not support the activities of violent herdsmen.

“He needs to say I do not support their actions, Buhari needs to come out for every Nigerian to see his intention to own this problem.

4) No Going Back On Regulation Of Social Media – Lai Mohammed

The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said that the federal government will continue with its plan to regulate social media.

Speaking in an interview with TheCable recently, Mohammed said the idea of regulating social media is not to stifle freedom of expression but to curb fake news and disinformation.


The minister noted that fake news and disinformation poses threat to the security of the nation, adding that the government will do everything humanly possible to avert chaos and violence in the country.


5) Politicians Behind Insecurity – Pastor Giwa

The cleric stated this while reacting to the statement of Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed defending Fulani herdsmen carrying AK-47.

Mohammed in his statement said the Fulani herdsmen carry AK-47 to defend themselves in the forests.


Pastor Giwa in a statement released on Sunday said: “Let Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba go, then, the senseless killings will stop. The federal government has failed Nigerians, it can no longer be trusted.”

“Politicians themselves are behind security challenges facing the nation. You could hear one of them saying there is nothing wrong with Fulani carrying AK-47.”


6) 2023: APC Plans To Pair Jonathan With El-Rufai

The ruling All Progressives Congress is planning field in former President Goodluck Jonathan and the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai for the 2023 presidential election.

Top sources which spoke with SaharaReporters noted that the former President is being considered by the party because of his influence in the southern region, while El-Rufai is being used as vice for him to become president when the presidency is again zoned to the North.


One of the sources said, “There are plans already to pair El-Rufai with Jonathan for 2023. We believe both forces are strong and have goodwill in their regions and are good for the party.”

It was gathered that pressure has been mounted on Jonathan to join the APC ahead of the 2023 presidential election.


7) Your days are numbered – Pastor Giwa tells Buhari, APC

The Senior pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, Adewale Giwa has said that the days of President Muhammadu Buhari and his political party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, are numbered, and that nothing can stop God from rising against them.

Giwa also said that only people who don’t think rationally will continue to believe that the APC has the ability and capability to turn Nigeria around.


Giwa who stated this while addressing his members in Akure on Sunday, urged Nigerians who still expect sudden miracles from President Buhari to go to the Synagogue Church of All Nations.


8) Why Fulani Herdsmen Took Up Arms – Sheikh Gumi

He said: “I blame everybody, from the President to you, the man speaking. I blame everybody. It is a combination of small, small issues here and there that produced this monster. Everybody is at fault. I don’t want any Nigerian to exonerate himself.


9) Allow Nigerians to bear arms – Bauchi herders

The Bauchi State wing of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN called on the Federal Government to allow every Nigerian to bear firearms to protect themselves.


The association Chairman in the state, Sadiq Ahmed, told The Nation in Bauchi that since the Federal Government could no longer protect its citizens, it was better for everyone to protect themselves from bandits.
