FG aware of countries supporting and funding IPOB- Lai Mohammed says

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, was a guest on NTA yesterday where he disclosed that the Federal government is aware of countries that are supporting and funding members of the now-outlawed secessionist group, the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB.

According to him, most of the countries were doing so out of ignorance as they have been deceived to believe that a genocide is currently happening in Nigeria and that Muslims are persecuting Christians.
“Terrorists do not publish where their funding are coming from. But we know the countries that are supporting IPOB. We know the sources of their funding though I am not at liberty to disclose them here. We are taking steps to block them and we are also taking a lot of diplomatic actions in respect of the countries that are supporting them. As we speak today, IPOB has written letters to many Governments outside Nigeria, international parliaments sending fake and cloned videos claiming there is genocide in Nigeria" he said
On the recent proscription of IPOB activities by the Defence Headquarters and the South East governors, Lai Mohammed said
“There are a lot of arguments regarding the constitutionality of the action of the military and the South East governors. People must realize that we are dealing with issues of national security and I do not think that the military and the governors should fold their arms while the country is set ablaze. I have heard a lot of comments as to whether the military has the right to declare IPOB, a terrorist group. What the military has done is to catalogue all the activities of IPOB, which are not different from that of terrorist groups,” he said.
The Minister who had previously accused disgruntled politicians of sponsoring Boko Haram activities, said activities of IPOB members became a source of worry when they set up a para-military organization, a parallel military group, Biafra Secret Service and Biafra National Guard.
“IPOB activities are not jokes. If there have not been the proactive actions on the part of the military and the South East governors, there would have been retaliation from other regions and the entire country will be set on fire. We cannot be talking about semantics or procedure when the nation is moving towards crises and precipices. It is only in the Banana Republic that you can see non-state actors doing what IPOB is doing. The actions by the military and the governors should be seen from the perspective of ensuring internal security and averting chaos,” he said.

5 Practical Lessons For Every Nigerian Graduate

Most Nigerian graduate leave an utopian dream. They have a false idea of life after the four walls. I was chatting with an undergraduate one day when she told me she can't take any job that doesn't pay at least N500,000. I was shocked to my bones. Nigeria graduates needs to brace up to reality and accept that they ahve to work extra hard to make a successful career after school. Here are 5 timeless lessons for every Nigerian graduate;

1. Don't Wait for Employment.

Every graduate irrespective of their final grade in the university, polytechnic or colleges expects to serve and get a job straight off. This feeling is even automatic among those finishing with first class, 2nd class upper or Higher credit.

NO! - Prepare yourself for the worst, start thinking of at least a source of income, if possible more right from your final year in school or during your youth service. That dream job might not come automatically, so don't wait.

2. Don't rely on your course of study. - Be ready to diversify

More than 50% of bank workers didn't study banking and finance or related courses. Sane can be said of so many profession too.

If you're in a course where employment oppurtunity is limited then eg Zoology you would agree you might not end up in a zoo or around animals.

The solution is to begin to diversify in your knowledge and skill acquisition or trade. Eg learn tailoring and become a fashion designer.

I'm summary, don't expect you would get a job in your chosen industry, so don't wait.

3. Don't expect a bank business loan.

For those who have 1 & 2 sorted out, and looking to be young entrepreneurs, done wait for a bank loan, you might not meet their requirements, so don't wait.

The solution could talking to family and friends, colleagues for partnership or part sponsoring or even fund raising.

4. Don't lose your school, NYSC contacts.

Keep your contacts, they are your first client. It's easier to convince family and friends to patronize you, that could then build your CV, portfolio or profile which would be used to get more clients. Value your links, don't lose them.

5. Don't give up

Need we emphasize this further? If you give up, your dream dies - keep going, keep doing the right things and you'll sure to stand out.

Remember, whatever happens don't give up rather change plans or you'd way of doing things.

Reps Order Banks To Unfreeze Patience Jonathan's Accounts

The House of Representatives on Tuesday directed six commercial banks to unfreeze any account belonging to former First Lady, Patience Jonathan and her relatives.

However, the affected banks are those without restriction order from court or the anti-graft agencies.

The House also asked the acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, to appear before its Public Petition Committee on October 4.

The House regretted that Magu failed to honour the Committee’s invitation on three occasions but advised the EFCC chairman that it should not be compelled to force his appearance before the panel.

At the continuation of hearing on a petition filed by Jonathan on Tuesday, some of the affected banks denied restricting access to accounts belonging to the former first lady.

The banks said access was only denied to the accounts flagged by the EFCC.

One of the banks, Diamond bank said Jonathan has three accounts with it.

The bank said one of the accounts was closed while the other two, including the one operated by her Non- governmental organization – Women For Change – were restricted.
