The Federal Government has insisted that the January 18th resumption date for schools in the country remains intact despite fears over the surge in COVID-19 cases in Nigeria.

“After extensive consultations with relevant stakeholders, including State Governors, Commissioners of Education, Proprietors and heads of institutions, staff unions and students, the consensus of opinion is that the resumption date of 18th January should remain,” the Federal Ministry of Education said in a statement issued on Thursday by its Director, Press and Public Relations, Ben Bem Goong.

This had sparked fears among many Nigerians that schools resumption might be put on hold indefinitely even though many states in the country had set dates for the reopening of the learning centres.

Dele Momodu and Lauretta Onochie

Chief Dele Momodu, a Nigerian journalist, has responded to the attack from Lauretta Onochie, President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Assistant on Social Media.

<p class="has-drop-cap" value="<amp-fit-text layout="fixed-height" min-font-size="6" max-font-size="72" height="80">Onochie called Dele Momodu, the king of scavengers after the publisher of Ovation magazine stated that Muhammadu Buhari has failed.Onochie called Dele Momodu, the king of scavengers after the publisher of Ovation magazine stated that Muhammadu Buhari has failed.

Why reacting to a tweet attacking him for supporting Buhari in 2015, Dele Momodu said: “I did not bring Buhari. I did what most reasonable Democrats would have done in the circumstance of PDP’s failure after 16 years in power by trying the next most electable candidate and when he failed tried the next, Atiku, and that is the essence and risk and flaw in Democracy!!.”

Responding to Dele Momodu’s comment, Lauretta Onochie said: “He (Buhari) “Failed” because he won’t dish out cash for photos that can easily be obtained on Instagram and other picture apps. #BabaNoDeyDrop.

“Because #BabaNoDeyDrop, your ego-massaging, ostentatious and filthy-wealth-flaunting customers, can no longer afford you. Try Diversification.”

In another tweet, Onochie wrote: KING OF SCAVENGERS! Hahaha! Look who’s talking…
DELE MOMODU IS SYNONYMOUS WITH SCAVENGING. Dele Momodu has a scavenging history. I don’t.

Here is a short history of his scavenging:

He latched onto late Chief MKO Abiola years ago.
Scared of Gen. Abacha, he went into exile.
He returned to Nigeria and latched onto Gen. Sani Abacha and began to scavenge from him, didn’t he?
Then he latched onto the nouveau riche in Nigeria.
After them, he latched on to Pres. Buhari. But #BabaNoDeyDrop. He even dried up the taps of the emergency millionaires that Dele latched unto.
So to former VP. Atiku he ran. That was not profitable. He didn’t win the presidency so the serial scavenger ran off.
From Atiku he ran and latched onto a former Ghanaian President.
Ghanaians brought him down to the ground and used his face to wipe the floor during their last presidential election.
Now Dele is looking for how to get off the Ghanaian floor and he’s angry with our President again.
He thinks I’m the reason his scavenging is not producing results. He thinks i have taken his place.
Who wants to buy photos that I have already shared on the Social Media? He’s busy eating his vomit that he cannot reason properly.

You’re not the only one affected by the downturn of the world economy. I’ll help you. Try diversification, it won’t kill you. Some states are recruiting teachers. Retrain and see if you’ll have a proper job. Or open a restaurant.

President Buhari is diversifying the Nigerian economy and it’s working. Nigeria recently moved from the 46th to the 25th richest nation in the world, contrary to the expectations of unpatriotic angry birds like you. And You dare call him a failure. You King of scavengers!

Keep speaking from your wild imaginations, insulting the President and his Vice, and I’ll keep stuffing your mouth full of bitter facts.

Dele Momodu, in response to the attack, described Lauretta as a troublesome woman.

He said: “Once again, my attention has been drawing to the tweets by a troublesome woman called Lauretta who claims to be working for President Muhammadu Buhari on social media but continues to attract public odium to the exalted office of the Nigerian President. Here’s my simple response.

“Lauretta is obviously peeved that I described her as a scavenger in the corridor of power. I stand by that assessment and assertion. If she has any iota of shame, she would’ve resigned after her nomination was sent to the national assembly, but rejected, as an INEC Commissioner…

“Lauretta was promptly and soundly rejected by a national assembly that is largely controlled by the ruling party APC and the shameless woman has no modicum of self-respect that would have enabled her show she can survive outside power, but NO, Buhari is her last HOPE in life!!!

“Lauretta now calls me a scavenger for doing my job professionally & objectively without any tinge of vindictiveness. Her reasons? I covered the Abachas, Atikus & others because I was hungry. Imagine such chicanery. A supposed media aide who doesn’t know the basic tenets of media!

“Lauretta, what have I done wrong by interviewing and interacting with fellow Nigerians? Apart from being a journalist, I was a Presidential candidate like your boss in 2011 and you should know that leaders interact with fellow leaders while their lackeys are busing breaking heads!

“Lauretta, have you forgotten that Abacha once served under Buhari but Buhari later served under Abacha when the tides changed. Buhari even praised Abacha to high heavens and said he was never corrupt! Pls quote, anywhere I ever praised Abacha! I covered a wedding like other media.

“Lauretta, have you forgotten that Buhari’s military government was toppled by Babangida in 1985 and they became sworn enemies. But this did not stop Buhari from visiting Babangida in Minna several times when he needed his endorsement. Yet a journalist cannot report newsmakers!!

“Lauretta, please be patient as I take you down memory lane since you were trying hard to eke a living abroad while we were busy fighting for the good of Nigeria. Buhari visited Obasanjo for endorsement despite their altercations in the past. Did he do so because he was scavenging!!

“Lauretta, you said I ran to England during the Abacha era but was I scavenging in England like you? By the grace of God, I managed to build a global brand & still found time to join hands with freedom fighters like Soyinka, Akinrinade, Tinubu, Oyegun, Fayemi, Afikuyomi & others!

“Lauretta, get a life. You are the biggest nuisance drawing negative vibes constantly to your boss. You dey lucky say Buhari no dey sack, you for don scatter since.”

The Nollywood industry is once again greeted with the death of another well known actor, and this comes as a tragedy to fans just after the new year celebration.

Many Nollywood fans may be familiar with the veteran actor named, Jim Lawson Maduike who has influenced the movie industry on his own specific ways.

The Imo-born actor died today, January 9 and according to reports he passed on after complaining of body pains at around 12 pm during the day.

Maduike joined the movie industry in 2004, and then went on the seal his name in the category of veterans.

Asides being an actor, Maduike was a radio broadcaster, writer, voice-over artist, a television personality and filmmaker. Check out some photos of Jim Lawson Maduike below.

May his gentle soul rest in peace, and he will forever remain in our hearts.

The Nigerian Army has redeployed 210 generals and over a thousand of its officers to various new positions in a major shakeup.

In a list obtained by Channels Television on Saturday, a total of 1,546 officers were redeployed.

Besides the generals that were redeployed, 450 Colonels, 309 Majors, 251 Captains and 322 Lieutenants were also affected.

According to the communication signed by Major-General GAT Ochigbano, all affected officers must take over from the effective dates.

“It is the responsibility of all formation/unit commanders whose officers are affected by this posting to implement accordingly,” the statement read.

– This is as the police council is set to hold a crucial seating in February as Mohammed Adamu’s service year ends in February

– There are, however, indications that the president may extend the tenure of the police boss

A new inspector general of police may be announced in February 2021 by the Nigerian Police Council (NPC), a credible media source has suggested.

According to The Punch, the current IGP, Mohammed Adamu, will retire from the force next month with a slim hope of tenure extension.

Adamu, who is the 20th IGP the country has produced, was appointed as the police boss by President Muhammadu Buhari, replacing Ibrahim Kpotun Idris of Niger state on January 15, 2019.

There are, however, hopes that the Adamu’s tenure may be extended by the president in order to allow him to execute some reforms in the police force.

<p class="has-drop-cap" value="<amp-fit-text layout="fixed-height" min-font-size="6" max-font-size="72" height="80">The president has on many occasions expressed trust and confidence in Ibrahim’s leadership of the force and has shunned demands for the sack of the security chiefs amid a deluge of security challenges.The president has on many occasions expressed trust and confidence in Ibrahim’s leadership of the force and has shunned demands for the sack of the security chiefs amid a deluge of security challenges.

Earlier, President Buhari extended the tenure of the comptroller-general of Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) and the commandant-general, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Muhammadu Gana.

But should Buhari decide not to extend Adamu’s tenure, many assistant inspector generals of police have been named to take over from where the current IGP ends his tenure.

“We know that AIG Moses Jitiboh (former Chief Personal Security Officer to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan) still has over five years but they are trying to spoil his chances. Apart from him, about four other AIGs from the North also have good chances of being appointed.
