Good morning! Here is today’s summary from Nigerian Newspapers:

1. Senator Oluremi Tinubu, wife of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has stated that her husband was sidelined after the party won the 2015 elections. Oluremi, who represents Lagos Central Senatorial District at the Senate, on Monday alleged that Tinubu was pushed to the side despite his efforts towards ensuring that APC won the polls. She disclosed how she prevailed on her husband to discontinue his loyalty to the Presidency and the APC.


2. The AITEO/Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) awards held in Lagos on Monday with Victor Moses emerging the 2018 Player of Year. Moses defeated Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi and Lobi Stars’ Anthony Okpotu. In attendance were FIFA President, Gianni Infantino and his CAF counterpart Ahmad Ahmad, Lagos state governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa and Francis Peters, the Deputy Managing Director, Aiteo Group.

3. A former President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Anthony Cardinal Olubunmi-Okogie, has told the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration that Nigerians are angry over poverty and insecurity in the country. Okogie, a former Lagos Archbishop of the Catholic Church, also called on the President to take note of the criticisms by former President, Olusegun Obasanjo; former military dictator, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida; the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria and others, saying that they should not be dismissed with a wave of the hand.

4. No fewer than seven persons sustained various degrees of injuries in an accident involving a passenger bus and cows at Omi-Adio Ibadan end of the Ibadan-Abeokuta expressway on Monday. Reports says that though, no death was recorded during the accident, a bloody clash between the Fulani settlers and residents in the surrounding villages (host communities) was promptly averted by policemen who came to evacuate the injured at the scene of the accident.

5. Wife of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Uchechi, has spoken out on the whereabouts of her husband, insisting that her husband is in the custody of the Nigerian Army. Mrs Kanu said she doesn’t know if he is alive or dead.


6. The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has attacked the Federal Government for telling Nigerians that the country is in safe hands, when the reality on the ground shows that the nation is drifting to the precipice. The party said that due to the incompetence and corrupt proclivities of its current handlers, Nigerians have suffered untold hardship.

7. The Kogi State Chapter of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) has described the mega rally organised by Gov Yahaya Bello as a colossal waste of the state resources.
The party described the governor’s action as wicked, callous, inhuman and insensitive to the plight of Kogites, stressing that the rally cost the state N2bn at a time when salaries and pensions hangovers are in the region of 22 months.

8. Only six banks have met the Central Bank of Nigeria’s directive on dividend payout by commercial banks and discount houses. They are: Access Bank, Zenith Bank, Guaranty Trust Bank (GTB), First City Monument Bank (FCMB), Wema Bank and United Bank for Africa (UBA). This was contained in a report released on Monday by Afrinvest West Africa, an investment and research firm.

9. Report says dozens of school girls from Government Girls Secondary School, GGSS Dapchi may have been abducted by insurgents who stormed the town Monday evening with heavy gunfire.


10. President Muhammadu Buhari has said all unclaimed looted assets, including landed properties recovered by the Federal Government, would be sold and the proceeds deposited into government treasury. Buhari disclosed this on Monday while addressing members of Daura Emirate coalition who paid him a condolence visit at his residence in Daura, Katsina State.
