Budding Nigerian actress, Nancy Igbojionu has shared some of her challenges plying her trade as an up and coming actress in Nollywood.

Nancy Igbojionu who had an interview recently reported by Kemi Filani revealed that almost every director and producer wants to see the color of her pant before giving her a role in their movies.

According to her, this trend makes her feel very worthless as filmmakers do not look at what she can do with her talent but only have an interest in her kpekus.

My challenges coming up was that everybody wanted to see the colour of my panties with the promise that they will make me a star. Of course, it made me feel worthless, like all they want is just the pant, and not what I have to offer, my talent”.

Sharing her bad sex experience, the script interpreter said:

“I don’t experience bad sex because my man crush is so yummy on the bed. I have experienced bad sex once; it was not good at all.”

Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Adamu
…charges them to deploy their wealth of experience in tackling security challenges

Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu on Tuesday decorated seven newly promoted Assistant Inspectors General of Police and seven Commissioners of Police with a charge the officers to deploy their wealth of experience towards curtailing the myriads of security challenges confronting the nation.

Adamu said, “I am convinced that all of you, newly promoted officers fit perfectly into my human capacity development vision. Let me however; remind you that to whom much is given, much more shall be expected.

“The Police leadership demands of you, higher sense of commitment to duty, and the nation expects  of you exceptional display of loyalty, courage and professional competence which are needed to move the Nigeria Police and our beloved country into the next level in relation to internal security”.

“I trust that you shall not fail the Nigeria Police Force, neither will you fail the nation in the critical responsibilities that your new rank shall impose on you”.

Noting that, “No organization can advance beyond the competence of its strategic leaders; neither can any organizational goals and plans be attained without a crop of highly committed personnel to drive the implementation process” the IGP said, “This assertion is even more critical for a law enforcement agency that is as strategic to internal security of the nation as the Nigeria Police force”.

“This is because the increasing complexity of crime and the challenges of policing a nation as diverse as ours require quality police managers that have the requisite professional knowledge, experience and competency to effectively provide leadership”.

He added, “It in cognizance of this that I have been collaborating with the Police Service Commission in ensuring that appropriate processes are emplaced to identify and promptly elevate deserves officers for promotion.

“This is a strategic management approach that is directed at motivating the workforce of the Nigeria Police personnel in committing to the duty of addressing current emerging internal security challenges”.

Towards this end, IGP Adamu said, “I am delighted to note that between January 2019 to date, a total of 141,391 officers and men of the police force have been promoted across all ranks. This comprises 41,480 officers and 99,911 Inspectors and Rank and File.

Among the AIGs decorated are AIG Habu Sani, AIG Aminu Pai Saleh, AIG Okon Ene, AIG Dasuki Galadanchi, AIG Joseph Mukan, AIG Ali Janga, and AIG Mukkadas Garba.

The Commissioners of Police decorated are CP Benjamin Nebolisa Okolo, CP David Jimwan, CP Rabiu Hussaini, CP Oyediran Oyeyemi, CP Monday Bala, CP Shuaibu Samaila and CP Abubakar Adamu.

Non–teaching staff in the universities will today commence indefinite strike over the Federal Government’s handling of the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System, sharing formula of the N40 billion earned academic allowances and non-payment of arrears of the new minimum wage.

Already, the National Joint Action Committee, JAC, comprising the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria Universities, SSANU and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Educational and Associated Institutions, NASU, has written to the branches to commence strike today.

A copy of the notice signed by SSANU National President, Mohammed Ibrahim, and NASU General Secretary, Prince Peters Adeyemi, was sent to our correspondent on Thursday.

Recall that the JAC had announced that it would proceed on an indefinite strike from February 5 following the alleged failure of the Federal Government to meet its demands.

Other demands include the non-payment of retirement benefits to former members, non-constitution of visitation panels to universities, poor funding of universities, teaching staff usurping the headship of non-teaching units, among others.

In a bid to stop the workers from embarking on strike, the Federal Government team led by Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige met with the leadership of the unions but the meeting ended in a deadlock on Tuesday.

Following the inability of the government to avert the strike through the meeting, a committee was set up to resolve the dispute over the N40 billion earned allowances and complaints about IPPIS.

Part of the notice read: “In view of the outcome of the meeting, the leadership of JAC of NASU and SSANU at the branches are hereby directed to commence joint general meetings on Friday to give reports on the outcome of the conciliation meeting and pass resolutions on the way forward.

“In the meantime, the nationwide strike takes effect from 12 midnight, Friday, February 5, 2021, pending any contrary resolution by the branches.”

Vanguard gathered that out of the seven demands, only the issues of IPPIS and the payment of arrears of the minimum wage were discussed at the meeting.

The government had told the unions that there was no money to pay for the arrears of the minimum wage and that a supplementary budget would be submitted to raise the money.

Buhari dashes South East’s hopes, allegedly appoints new Police IGP from Borno

President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly appointed Zanna Mohammed Ibrahim, an Assistant Inspector-General as the acting Inspector General of Police; effectively dashing the hopes of the South East which had agitated for the region to produce the next IGP.

AIG Ibrahim, the alleged new appointee, hails from Borno State.

However, 1st News reports that the appointment is yet to be confirmed by the Presidency.

Nevertheless, feelers indicate that the development has already began to spark celebrations among sections of the Police Force. Meanwhile, the appointment of AIG Ibrahim by President Buhari comes in the wake of the retirement of Adamu Mohammed Abubakar; the erstwhile IGP.

Buhari

Zanna Ibrahim, an indigene of Borno State, was born on November, 26, 1962. He obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a Master’s degree in International Relations and Strategic Studies; both from the University of Jos, Plateau State. He was enlisted into the Nigeria Police Force, on 15th March, 1988.

On successful completion of training at the Nigeria Police Academy Annex, Kaduna; he was posted to the Borno State Police Command, where he had a one-year compulsory attachment at Biu Divisional Police Headquarters. Also, he later served in various Commands and Police formations across the country.

Equally important, the acting IGP was appointed Zamfara State Commissioner of Police on 2019.

Until his appointment, AIG Ibrahim was the Commandant of the Police Academy, Kano State.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has called on critics complaining about the purported worsening security situation in the country to end the needless emotion.

He challenged them to come up with facts and figures to buttress their claims, adding that the security situation had rather improved compared to when the administration came to power in 2015.

The minister said this when he featured on “Politics Nationwide”, Radio Nigeria programme on Tuesday, February 2, in Abuja.

Recently, A female Police officer got dismissed from service after she got pregnant. You may be wondering why she was sacked from service, simply because she got pregnant. Well according to the news report, the female Officer was not married. And so when she got pregnant, they saw it as an embarrassment to the Police Force, and she had to be relieved from all her duties. I guess she might be regretting her actions now, because it has caused her her work.

A Police Public Relations Officer, reacted to the news, and he defended the Dismissal of the Female Officer who got pregnant out of wedlock. According to the Police PRO, he said that getting Pregnant without being married is disgrace to the force. And so, the Police force was right in the decision they took against her. Activist Aisha Yesufu reacted to what the Police PRO said. She reacted to the news through her Twitter account.

Aisha in her reaction, asked the Police PRO a question, that was bothering her about the news. She asked that, what about Impregnating women out of wedlock? Here is the screenshot of her tweet.

From what Aisha asked, I guess that she feels that, what should be done to the Female should also apply to the male.

Here are some Reactions from of her followers

127 soldiers tender resignation from Nigerian Army

A total of 127 soldiers have tendered their resignation from the Nigerian Army, This is despite the worsening security challenges the military is currently combating in some parts of the country.

The soldiers, drawn from various formations of the army across the country, are all of the junior cadres who are mostly at the forefront in the field.

Their resignation may not be unconnected to the dwindling morale within the rank and file of the officers which has caused a lot of disaffection between high ranking officers and low ranking officers.

Also, the inability of military funding to translate to actual weapons of engagement for the troops against the insurgents, may be responsible for this latest round of resignation. This is despite the defense sector taking a large chunk of Nigeria’s budget.

The soldiers are to proceed on terminal leave WEF 26th April, 21 while their disengagement date takes effect from 26th May 21 in accordance with the NA administrative policies and procedures No. 27 paragraphs 3 and 4,” the memo addressing the soldiers read.
