BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — A co-chairman of Republican Donald Trump's New York presidential campaign who publicly insulted Democratic President Barack Obama and his wife has been asked to resign from a local school board. Millionaire developer Carl Paladino told a Buffalo alternative newspaper last week he wanted to see Obama dead of mad cow disease and Michelle Obama living with a gorilla in Africa. He now says the comments weren't meant for publication but were nevertheless "inappropriate." At a special meeting on Thursday the Buffalo school board voted 6-2 to ask the state education commissioner to remove Paladino if he doesn't resign within 24 hours. Paladino didn't attend the meeting. He says he won't resign.

These effectively trimmed the year-to-date loss in the stock market to -6.8 per cent compared to -11.55 per cent recorded three weeks ago. Capital market operators attributed these positive development to portfolio realignment by bargain hunters who are investing in cheap stocks and those who are taking position to benefit from companies that usually declared dividend early in the year. Moreover, they stated that the surge recently seen in oil prices as a result of the decision by member countries of Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries, OPEC, to peg output, is also impacting the market in the right direction. They noted that this positive sentiment might continue into next year, especially with the 2017 expansionary budget presented by President Muhammadu Buhari last week. Week-to-date performance On week-to-week basis, the ASI and market capitalisation rose by 3.44 per cent driven by interest in oil and gas company, Seplat Development Company Plc, which rose by 20.6 per cent, Guaranty Trust Bank Plc that returned 9.3 per cent and Dangote Cement Plc, which rose by 6.3 per cent as oil prices rallied above $50.00/b during the week. Activity level also improved as average volume and value traded rose 131.4 per cent and 47.9 per cent to 414.1 million units and N3.1 billion. According to the NSE, a turnover of 639.439 million shares worth N6.455 billion in 11,799 deals were traded this week by investors on the floor of the Exchange in contrast to a total of 823.547 million shares valued at N5.444 billion that exchanged hands last week in 11,634 deals. The Financial Services Industry (measured by volume) led the activity chart with 491.758 million shares valued at N2.211 billion traded in 6,241 deals; thus contributing 76.90% and 34.25% to the total equity turnover volume and value respectively. The Conglomerates Industry followed with 64.507 million shares worth N58.500 million in 681 deals. The third place was occupied by the Consumer Goods Industry with a turnover of 54.901 million shares worth N3.307 billion in 2,386 deals. Similar to the previous week, performance across sectors was mixed with the oil and gas index appreciating the most, recording 7.4 per cent increase on account of renewed buy sentiment in Seplat (+20.6 per cent) and Forte Oil Plc (+9.4 per cent). The banking index trailed by 6.3 per cent, driven by gains in Ecobank Transnational Incorporated, ETI Plc that recorded +21.1 per cent return and GTB, (+9.3 per cent). Similarly, the industrial goods sector added 3.5 per cent as a result of upsurge in Dangote Cement (+6.3 per cent) and Cement Company of Northern Nigeria, CCNN (+5.0 per cent). On the flip side, declines in Nigerian Breweries Plc, which fell by 2.1 per cent and Unilever Nigeria Plc that declined by 12.1 per cent dragged the consumer goods sector down by 1.7 per cent, while the insurance sector dipped by 0.5 per cent against the backdrop of losses in Mansard Insurance, 4.1 per cent and Wapic insurance which dropped by 2.0 per cent. Operators comment Reacting, Alhaji Ola Yussuff, Managing Director/CEO, Trust Yield Securities, explained that the market is not one directional but cyclical. He noted that one of the reasons why the market plummeted earlier in the year was because the country was not selling enough oil. “When the market went down, one of the reasons was that Nigeria was not selling enough oil. The price of oil was going down and Nigeria was not selling enough; now when it started going up, most of the oil stocks started going up. If oil price was at N35 and it now moved up to over N50, that has changed the invoicing of some of the oil marketers, and if that has changed their invoicing, it also changed the invoicing of the banks that were financing them. “Most of the banks that we noted earlier that were in trouble was because of their exposure to oil and gas. So, if there is improvement in oil and gas or prospect of improvement, then there will be prospect of improvement in banking and that is what we have been seeing.

Rose, 33, was all smiles in a black velvet romper and knee-high boots, while the younger Chmerkovskiy brother, 30, sported an all-black ensemble. Rose was a contestant on the latest season of DWTS (before she was voted off in week 6 of the show) and partnered up with Chmerkovskiy’s older brother Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The budding couple first fueled romance rumors in October after they were spotted cozying up together at Rose’s 33rd birthday party. “They were giggly and seemed very comfortable together,” an onlooker shared to PEOPLE. In October, Chmerkovskiy shared a photo from the festivities with the caption, “HBD MUVA.” Val Chmerkovskiy Plays Coy on Amber Rose Romance Rumors The duo also wore coordinating Halloween costumes soon after Rose’s birthday, and, as a source previously told PEOPLE, “It’s very new, but it’s going well.” Rose has not commented on the dating rumors, but the Ukrainian dancer recently joked to ET: “I’d make a cute couple with a lot of people, you know what I’m sayi.

Italian PM Matteo Renzi's referendum defeat on Sunday has left Italy facing political and economic uncertainty. Mr Renzi announced he was stepping down after his constitution reform plan was rejected by voters. He met President Sergio Mattarella and will offer him his resignation later. Mr Mattarella must decide whether to appoint a new PM or hold elections. There are concerns the instability may trigger a deeper crisis for Italy's already vulnerable banking sector. A consortium organising a possible bailout for one leading bank, Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena, is meeting on Monday to consider whether to pursue the rescue bid.

The choice Nigerians need to make in 2019 One politician strolled into the fourth republic with huge dose of democratic credentials. Alhaji Abubakar Atiku established himself as a democrat immediately he resigned from public service. He became a disciple of late Gen. Shehu Musa Yar’Adua, the great political tactician that swept the country like a hurricane. Members of this political machine included Chief Anthony Anenih, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Lamidi Adedibu, Dapo Sarumi, Yomi Edu and others. Turaki Abubakar was at the verge of winning the governorship election of Adamawa State in 1991 before former military President Ibrahim Babangida banned him and other frontline candidates across the afraid-atiku-abubakar/ot deterred by the setback, he contested the presidential primary election of the Social Democratic Party and placed third out 30 contestants. Who is afraid of Atiku and why are they afraid of him? In understanding who and why they are afraid of Atiku, we need to analyse the politics of the fourth republic and properly situate his role(s) in proper context. It is worthy to mention that he was a founding member of the Peoples’ Democratic Party and actually contributed N500m to the party. It is obvious that he had already conquered the business world before assuming office as Vice President. In modern Nigeria, I have not seen a politician more tenacious that the Turaki Adamawa in defending his beliefs and projecting same for the benefit of humanity. Anybody in doubt should take a trip to the hill top of Abeokuta and debrief former Olusegun Obasanjo. He masked his intention on a third term agenda hinged on the need for policy continuity. He did not reckon with the tenacity of Atiku to rally positive forces of the political class to checkmate him. The political fallout on the Turaki was massive. Obasanjo unleashed the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) led by Nuhu Ribadu on him. Lies were churned out and international conspiracy was activated to damage the skyrocketing political profile of the former Vice President. However, his doggedness and commitment to the creation of an ideal Nigerian society kept him going. Today, he has emerged as the leading light in the remodelling of our nation. In moving Nigeria to political stability, tolerance and developmental Eldorado, what is needed is a thoroughbred politician imbued with economic foresight and ability to create jobs for the youth population. The youths have become despondent and feel left behind by the political and economic train. A tested hand like Atiku is surely needed to coordinate the proper integration of the youths into the economic mainstream. He is the highest individual employer of labour in Nigeria and a believer in excellence. The truth that cannot be dismissed is that among those jostling to convince Nigerians for their votes in 2019, only the Turaki has experience in job creation. This is the choice Nigerian must make in 2019 without sentiment and pandering to the propaganda of surrogates of past failures. The fragility of our mutual existence as a country cannot be over exaggerated. As a matter of fact, the erosion of our cultural, religious and social commonalities is an ever constant feature of the past two decades. There is need to undertake enormous reintegration of all divergent groups into a united country. Nobody can do it better than Atiku. He is a proven man of immense conviction and political muscles to navigate us to the destination of unity. President Muhammadu Buhari came at a time he was needed to abridge our drift towards excessive insecurity and anarchy. Atiku is the man to build the country for the happiness and prosperity of all citizens of Nigeria. Read more at: http://www.vanguardngr.com/2016/12/afraid-atiku-abubakar/.

ONDO ELECTION, 2019 AND THE BATTLE WITHIN APC : Pro-Buhari elements Vs Tinubu’s men Read more at: http://www.vanguardngr.com/2016/12/ondo-election-2019-battle-within-apc-pro-buhari-elements-vs-tinubus-men/
Akure Though peaceful, last weekend’s governorship election in Ondo State was seen by many observers as a ‘bazaar’ in which the highest bidder got the lion share of the votes. But, whereas all the major political parties allegedly took part in the undemocratic game, the way the All Progressives Congress (APC) allegedly went on spending spree put to question the anti-corruption crusade of the ruling government at the federal level. No fewer than six governors of the APC whose states’ civil servants are owed salaries for several months were said to be part of the ‘bazaar’ staged in the name of election. They were allegedly led to Ondo by the Chairman of the party’s Governors Forum, Rochas Okorocha, who is the Imo State governor and a former governor of Ekiti State but now Solid Minerals Minister, Dr Kayode Fayemi. Oyegun, Tinubu and Buhari Security operatives and officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were believed to be part of the alleged voters inducement as they pretended that nothing of such was going on. They looked the other way after they had allegedly been taken care off. It was an inducement allegedly done with impunity by all the political parties. Meanwhile, the alleged voters’ inducement was done in flagrant disobedience of the police authorities threat before the election that nobody should come to the polling units with more than N5,000 as such people would be arrested. Cash-for-vote But supporters of the various parties allegedly stormed polling units across the state with millions of naira to trade in “ see and buy”, otherwise known as cash-for-vote. It was learnt that between N500,000 and N1m was sent to each of the 3,009units across Ondo by one of the major parties to induce voters while other parties sent far less. This was aside the distribution of clothing materials- Ankara- rice, salt, noodles, sugar and other consumable goods to voters by political parties. The desperation of one of the major parties to “capture” the state became so evident in the moves by some top government officials to frustrate the chances of two of the leading governorship candidates in the poll: PDP’s Eyitayo Jegede and AD’s Olusoke Oke, who was believed to have been schemed out of the primary of the APC which produced Mr Rotimi Akeredolu as the candidate. Oke moved to Alliance for Democracy (AD) allegedly with the backing of a National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, but the top government officials still pursued him and tried to frustrate him because of his backer who reportedly wanted to use him to slight them for allegedly imposing Akeredolu as the APC candidate in the Ondo poll against his preferred candidate, Dr Olusegun Abraham. Oke survived the moves after the National Executive Committee (NEC) of AD cleared him and gave him a waiver to contest the poll. The top government officials were said to have worked on the premises that with Oke and Akeredolu in the race, the federal might would be deployed to muscle the AD candidate, hence they let him go but with the popularity and acceptance of Jegede, they knew that allowing the PDP candidate to contest could spell doom for Akeredolu following which they shut him out until 24 hours to the election and all appeal, by stakeholders for a shift in the date of the poll to allow Jegede a level-playing ground, as provided by the Electoral Act were rebuffed by INEC which the PDP and Governor Olusegun Mimiko alleged had compromised the election even before it was conducted. While Oke left the APC over the alleged injustice done to him by the party leadership which allegedly imposed Akeredolu despite the criticism that trailed the party’s primary election, Jegede was made to abandon his campaign for weeks to run after an impostor, Mr Jimoh Ibrahim, who laid claim to his mandate. It was later alleged that Jimoh Ibrahim was an instrument being used by some top government officials at the federal level to level the hurdles that could prevent Akeredolu from winning the November 26 election. Separately, the election, according to Sunday Vanguard findings, was not only about Akeredolu, Jegede or Oke but also about the capture of the South-West by the foot soldiers of President Muhammad Buhari ahead of the 2019 elections when the President will be due to run for second term. Their target is said to be Tinubu whose grip and influence in the region was believed to be making some top appointees of Buhari uncomfortable and that if the 2019 project would scale through, the APC National Leader needed to be “cut to size”. Now that Ondo has been “captured” using alleged cash-for-votes, the next target of the forces allegedly trying to upstage Tinubu in the South-West to pave the way for the re-election of Buhari in 2019 is said to be Ekiti where the governorship election will hold in 2018. Sources said after Ekiti, the train is heading to Osun where although a loyalist of Tinubu, Rauf Aregbesola, is governor, Tinubu may also be stopped from installing an associate as Aregbesola’s successor in the election also due to hold in 2018. It was gathered that the capture” Ondo by the Presidency group was systematically planned and executed. No love lost If Akeredolu had failed to win the election,the people’s confidence in the administration of Buhari and the APC might have been greatly eroded and the 2019 project crumbled like a pack of caracard.
Borno can debunks alleged marginalization in reconstruction of destroyed churches Read more at: http://www.vanguardngr.com/2016/12/borno-can-debunks-alleged-marginalization-reconstruction-destroyed-churches/#disqus_thread
Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Borno State chapter, Bishop Mohammed Naga, has debunked allegations that many christian communities have been marginalized in the on-going reconstruction work of destroyed churches by government of Governor Kashim Shettima. Briefing newsmen in his office, CAN centre, Maiduguri, at the week end, the Bishop, who is also the Vice Chairman of the Committee set up by the governor to reconstruct destroyed churches due to activities of Boko Haram in southern senatorial district of the state, said, none of the christian communities will be marginalized in the reconstruction effort as claimed by some groups in Damboa Local Government Area. Earlier, Brother Simon Ularju who is Chairman of Christian Forum in Damboa, who led other members on a courtesy call on the CAN Chairman recently alleged that, “communities of Kopchi, Izgeki, Kauji, Bdagu, Yazza, Shawa, Kuburvu, Kwanjilari and other villages on the fringes of Sambisa forest, whose churches were all razed including their residential houses were denied their rights by the committee to be enlisted in the reconstruction effort”. But Naga said, Governor Kashim Shettima is committed to the plights of Christians in the state, hence the setting up of a high powered committee to reconstruct all destroyed churches across the state, which, according to him, will be done in phases as the security situation improved.
House of Representatives Committee on Maritime Safety, Education and Administration has resolved to support the rebuilding efforts of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) in its quest to reposition, reform and restructure the agency for the benefit of the nation’s economy. The committee challenged NIMASA’s management on 90 percent implementation of its budget, calling on the management to spend funds appropriated to it, according to the provisions of the law, so that the value of the projects can be realised. The Chairman of the Committee, Mohammed Umar Bago said this when he led other members of his committee on oversight visit to the agency, assuring the unflinching support of members to enable the agency deliver on its mandate, in ensuring the growth of the maritime sector, especially now that the economy is in a recession. The Committee Chairman called on the management to see their visit as a wakeup call, noting that “in the 8th Assembly, the legislative agenda is the same. “All of us apply the same approach now in trying to bring out the best in our parastatals. We should not be seen as vindictive or punitive but as partners in progress”, he said. In his remakrs, the Director General of NIMASA, Dr. Dakuku Peterside assured the Committee of the agency’s readiness to cooperate with it in the interest of the maritime industry and the country as a whole. “When you are given an assignment, you are expected to be accountable. You are expected to conduct the assignment in a transparent manner. The oversight function is part of accountability. The National Assembly appropriates for us, so we are expected to be accountable. And so we have given account of our stewardship”, he said. The NIMASA’s boss assured the Committee that there would be a significant improvement in the operations of the agency, even as he welcomed the call for a synergy between the executive and legislative arms of government for the benefit of Nigerians. He said, “The beauty of democracy is collaboration, synergy between the executive and the legislative arms of government. We are all working for a single purpose to help Nigerians. We are working to help the people to ensure that life is better for all. No single arm of government can do it alone, we must work in a collaborative manner”.
