Premier League Result: Manchester City 3-1 West Ham

Pep Guardiola was recruited to rewrite the record books at Manchester City, and on Sunday he made his initial entry. He is the first Manchester City manager to win his opening five games straight. It’s not the Champions League trophy; but it’s a start.

Manchester City turned on the style against West Ham to maintain Pep Guardiola's perfect start to his Etihad reign.

City sparkled in the first half before they eased up after the interval, allowing West Ham back into the game when they should have been dead and buried.

Raheem Sterling continued his fine start to the season by opening the scoring before Fernandinho made it 2-0 after 18 minutes.

City were guilty of complacency and Michail Antonio gave West Ham hope when he pulled one back with a header.

Sergio Aguero was also guilty of elbowing Winston Reid and the City striker could face a retrospective ban, ruling him out of the Manchester derby.

Then Sterling got a well-earned second late on to earn the Man of the Match award.

The scene of the incident. The victim seen in pink shirt
This is the moment a man was nabbed after he was caught trying to extract blood on a girl in Lagos.

According to reports, the man (name yet unknown) had taken the girl to a hotel and had s*x with her, and after they finished making love, he allegedly proceeded to take nude photos of her as well as attempting to take her blood.

An eye witness who broke the news, told the story thus:

"As crowds gathered outside the popular hotel (Big fish restaurant and bar) where short time rest is done, I tried to inquire what was happening and it turned out to be that a man took a girl (supposed prostitute) for a short time and after the first round of s*x, as the girl is resting, the man not only snapped her unclad but also attempted to take her blood.

"However, she woke up feeling so dizzy as someone who has been drugged then she raised alarm. He claimed to be a Naval doctor and when his phone was opened, terrible things were seen, the blood extracted was also siezed.

"Police was alerted and it turned out that he isn't a Navy officer. He has been whisked away. Please the pics are not clear cos i was trying to be discreet while snapping.

"The girl wearing pink was the victim while the man looking towards the camera wearing black is the suspect."

Revealed! This is How Dogara and Other House Leaders Looted N10 Billion In Illegal Allowances
Yakubu Dogara
Abdulmumin Jibrin, the former Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations, has alleged that the House Speaker Yakubu Dogara; his deputy Lasun Suleiman Yusuf; House Leader Femi Gbajabiamila, and other principal officers of the House received illegal allowances totaling N10 billion. This latest allegation was contained in a statement issued by Mr. Jibrin.

Explaining his decision to expose the House leadership, Jubrin said: "In line with my resolve to continue to expose individual and systemic corruption in the House of Representatives, I will today commence the disclosure of what many Nigerians believe is almost impossible to reveal or are not even aware of – the allowances of Members of the House."

Mr. Jibrin proceeded to challenge the House leadership to tell the public exactly how much they have earned in allowances instead of starting a drama.

According to Mr. Jibrin, Mr. Dogara, who has been a member of the House since 2007, received N1.5 billion in inappropriate allowances. Mr. Yusuf, the Deputy Speaker, a member of the House since 2001, and Gbajabiamila, a member since 2003, have earned N800 million and N1.5 billion respectively in dubious allowances according to him.

Mr. Jirbin’s statement continued by saying: the Deputy House Leader, Umar Buba Jubril, received N1.2 billion since 2003. The Chief Whip Alhassan Ado Doguwa received N1.7 billion since 2007. The Deputy Chief Whip, Pally Iriase is alleged to have illegally earned N700 million since 2011. Leo Ogor the Minority Leader got N1.2 billion since 2003.

The Deputy Minority Leader, Chukwuka Onyema, has pocketed N800 million; the Minority Whip Yakubu Umar Barde got N1. 2 billion; and the Deputy Minority Whip, Binta Bello, is said to have received N700 million.

Mr. Jibrin admitted to earning N650 million in allowances but said he was not comfortable pocketing such. Mr. Jibrin reiterated his willingness to testify against the principal officers and to continue to cooperate with the anti-corruption agencies.

He said, "I have done my part and left the rest to the anti-corruption agencies, the judiciary and Nigerians. After the allowances issue, the next exposé will delve into investigative hearings and oversight activities.

"My resolve to open up on the controversial allowances should be instructive to all those who think I am only out to get Speaker Dogara out of his seat. "If that is my mission, I will definitely not go into the issue of allowances, which is the only aspect that unites the entire House.

"I have said it repeatedly that this activism has been running in my blood, and thankfully the fallout of the 2016 budget became the trigger and provided me with the right avenue. I always take solace in the fact that posterity will judge not only members of the House but our leaders and Nigerians as a whole on how they support or oppose Speaker Dogara and the other accused Principal Officers' avaricious move to hold on to power in the face of these mounting accusations," Mr. Jibrin said.

The legislator added that if members of the House and the public remain comfortable with Mr. Dogara in office, despite the allegations against him and the other principal officers, then he is ready to continue his crusade alone.

"The imperative of having a corrupt-free House of Representatives cannot be over-emphasized. "It is only when the legislature comes with purity that effective oversight will be carried out and investigative hearings to expose fraud and corruption can be undertaken.

When the House is corrupt, it affects the whole country because the House of Representatives is the largest representation of Nigerians. "This must be the starting point of the fight against corruption. I dare say the root of our economic, political and social problems as a country lies in the House. No amount of economic strategy will succeed in this country if we do not put hands together and decisively deal with corruption in the House," he argued.

He explained that dealing with corruption in the House, especially dubious allowances, will change the way elections are contested. Candidates, he said, usually spend so much money, hoping to recoup such from the huge allowances they will receive when elected into House.

"When you know that there is no such money in the House to be shared, I am sure nobody will want to put in so much money just to win an election to the House. The resultant effect will be that only people who truly want to serve will vie for the office, and voters will be obliged to vote according to the dictate of their conscience," Mr. Jibrin reasoned.

Ex-Militant, Asari Dokubo Killed? Ijaw Youth Council Speaks on Rumours
Asari Dokubo
In a statement on Saturday by Eric Omare, the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) spokesman, the South-South group, has dismissed the rumoured attack by military personnel on Alhaji Asari Dokubo, founder of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF).

Punch reported that there were widespread rumours of Asari being killed in an alleged confrontation with soldiers on Saturday morning. IYC have now said that the former militant warlord was in good health and there was never a confrontation between him and military men.

IYC, an umbrella body for Ijaw youths, also called for the immediate withdrawal of troops from the region particularly the creeks of the Niger Delta following the recent ceasefire deal reached with militant youths and stakeholders in the region.

The group stated that there was no reason for military deployment in the region, adding that such was already causing tension and fear among people in the region.

Negotiate with Us Now or Receive the Boko Haram Treatment - President Buhari Warns Militants
President Muhammadu Buhari
President Buhari in a new message, has called on militants unleashing violence on the Niger Delta to enter into dialogue with his government. The president advised the militants to negotiate or risk being dealt with the same way the nation’s military dealt with members of the Boko Haram sect.
He said this would be done because he was aware of his government’s responsibility to secure the country for economic activities to thrive.

The Punch reports that according to a statement on Sunday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President spoke on Saturday evening at a bilateral meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, on the sidelines of the sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development in Nairobi, Kenya.

He told the Japanese leader that with the defeat of the Boko Haram terrorists by the military, the attention of the administration is now focused on stopping the destruction of the country’s economic assets by militants in the Niger Delta region.

Despite the violence in the region, Buhari assured existing and prospective foreign investors that their investments in Nigeria will be fully secured and protected. He outlined several steps being taken by his administration to secure the country and ease doing business in Nigeria.

The President said, “We are talking to some of their (Niger Delta militants’) leaders. We will deal with them as we dealt with Boko Haram if they refuse to talk to us. “As a government, we know our responsibility, which is to secure the environment. It is clear to us that lenders won’t fund projects in insecure environments. “We realise that we have to secure the country before we can efficiently manage it.”

Buhari also told the Japanese Prime Minister that security in the Gulf of Guinea, which is greatly affected by piracy and armed robbery at sea, was a priority for the Nigerian government.

“We have provided funds to our Navy to buy new platforms, train and effectively organise the personnel to protect the area. We are looking forward to support from developed nations for satellite surveillance covering the Gulf,” the President said.

Recalling his audience with G7 leaders in Germany, which was attended by the Prime Minister, Buhari thanked Japan for responding positively to the requests by Nigeria for the rehabilitation of victims of Boko Haram and rebuilding of infrastructure in the North Eastern part of the country.

The President however said there was still more to do on education, health and other infrastructure to ensure quick and voluntary return of displaced persons to their native communities.

On the United Nations Security Council reform, Buhari agreed to work with Japan for the reforms, stressing that the case for a permanent seat for Africa on the Council was a moral one. He also expressed Nigeria’s support for Japan in its bid for a UN resolution on the problems in East China and South China as well as the “uncontrolled nuclear tests by North Korea.”

The President said, “The UN system is sufficient for the resolutions of all disputes and no nation should be above the United Nations. “This has to be made absolutely clear and I assure the Prime Minister that I will meet as many leaders as possible at the forthcoming UN General Assembly concerning the issues.”

In his remarks, Prime Minister Abe congratulated President Buhari “for courageously tackling Boko Haram terrorism.”

He said:
Nigeria and Japan must work together to improve the investment climate in view of the many Japanese companies wishing to invest in Nigeria. He reaffirmed Japan’s commitment to rapid development in Nigeria through quality delivery of ongoing projects in the country, including Jebba hydro power scheme and the Lagos railway project.
