'Any leader who can’t perform should get out of office' - Obasanjo

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo today said any leader who cannot perform in office by providing leadership should get out of office.

Obasanjo, who spoke at the Lagos State University, LASU, Convocation lecture in Lagos, Southwest Nigeria said such a leader should not think of seeking re-election but to get out of office.

The former President, though, did not mention the name of President Muhammadu Buhari in his speech, but his words betrayed him and pointed to the president. Obasanjo spoke on the “Role of tertiary education in promoting social cohesion and peace: Opportunities and Challenges for Nigeria.” He said four needs were basic features anyone leading a country must be ready to bring to fore because they worked together.

According to him, “We need those four things. If for any reason, you, as a leader in any walks of life, you cannot give leadership, maintain good governance; you cannot understand what development is and maintain and cherish values within our cultures, you must ship out no matter any level of leader you are. If we continue with business as usual, our chances of development within the committee of nations will be very slim. We have to do things differently in Nigeria for us to get things right. If we do this, we will be reckoned with globally. But if we fail, the world will leave us behind. As a leader, you must be ready to Give, or get others to Give (delegate). And if you cannot do either of the two, you must Get out. If we don’t have them, we are deceiving ourselves. God has given Nigeria what it needs. But we will get there if we apply the three Gs,” he stated.

The former president stated that though the country had diversified ethic groups, the problem the nation had with diversity was lack of management which brought nepotism, favouritism and others into the polity, adding that diversity in the country’s ethnicity must not hinder equal treatment for all since everyone is citizens of the country.

'In 2018, herdsmen have killed 425 people in Benue State' – Governor Ortom

Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue state, says suspected herdsmen have killed 425 people in Benue in 2018 alone. The governor spoke yesterday during the burial of two Catholic priests Felix Tyolaha and Joseph Gor along with17 parishioners killed by gunmen during a raid on Saint Ignatius Parish, Mbalom, Benue.

The governor regretted the attacks on the church, wondering: “these people were in the church and not on their farms; by this act, they gave moved their narrative to include other motives”.

He called on the federal government to arrest the killer-herdsmen, saying ” we know our killers but they are not arrested or invited for interrogation; they have stated at several fora that they would reclaim their land.” The governor said the anti-open grazing law passed by the state assembly and accented by him, was the best way in curbing incessant clashes between herdsmen and farmers in the country.

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo who attended the service said the killers will not go unpunished. The vice-president, who was accompanied on the trip by ministers, top ranking politicians of different political shades, expressed the government’s commitment to end the attacks. He said the perpetrators of such dastardly and heinous crimes do not deserve to live among decent people but prayed for the conversion of their souls.

The bishops who spoke at the burial called in the government to ensure the killers were brought to book. A team representing the Catholic Church in West Africa were also at the burial. The corpses of the Mbalom church attack were laid to rest at a small hilltop village situated on the outskirts of Ikpayongo, in Gwer east local government council around 2:45pm

New York parents sue their only son, 30, because he won't move out from their family home. (Photos)

A New York judge has finally ordered a 30-year-old unemployed man to move out of his parents' home after the couple's attempt to have him vacate their home for months were abortive.

At a Tuesday hearing in court which was attended by the couple, Mark and Christina Rotondo of Camillus, New York and their son Michael, it was heard that their unemployed only-son does not pay any rent, nor does he help with any chores around the house.

The New York State Supreme Court Judge Donald Greenwood who presided over the case also heard that the couple have been trying for months to kick their son out, and even offered to assist when he finally does.

According to Mail Online, Michael argued in court that legal precedent allowed him six months notice before his parents could kick him out. But the judge pointed out another case that nullified that previous decision, and called six months an 'outrageous' amount of time to ask for. Michael responded that it was 'outrageous' to evict him.

He left court frustrated, refusing to speak to his parents and saying he didn't think the judge read the case fully, according to CNY Central. He says he will appeal the decision.

The judge later asked the couple to come up with an eviction order that he would sign. But it was not decided in court how long Michael would be given to move out.

It was also reported that the couple's lawyer is planning to get an eviction notice that would be enforceable by the sheriff, despite the fact that Micheal plans to appeal.

According to Zillow, his parents home is owned by his mother, who bought it in 1988. The four-bedroom home is worth an estimated $218,000

Here are letters the couple have written to their son, informing him that he must leave the home.

Sweden distributes "be prepared for war" leaflet to all 4.8m homes

The Swedish government has started sending out information leaflets to the 4.8 million households in the country, telling them what to do in the event of a war.

This comes one month after Russian state-owned television explained to Russians how to stock their bunkers with water and basic foodstuffs in case a war breaks out.

The pamphlet distributed by the Swedish government, titled Om krisen eller kriget kommer (If crisis or war comes), explains how people can secure basic needs such as food, water and heat, what warning signals mean, where to find bomb shelters and how to contribute to Sweden’s “total defence”.

This is the first time in more than half a century that Sweden is sending out such leaflet. The 20-page pamphlet, illustrated with pictures of sirens, warplanes and families fleeing their homes, also prepares the population for dangers such as cyber and terror attacks and climate change, and includes a page on identifying fake news.

The brochure says: "Although Sweden is safer than many other countries, there are still threats to our security and independence. If you are prepared, you are contributing to improving the ability of the country to cope with a major strain."

Similar leaflets were first distributed in neutral Sweden in 1943, at the height of the second world war. Updates were issued regularly to the general public until 1961, and then to local and national government officials until 1991.

The leaflet advises people to think about how to cope if there was no heating, food became difficult to buy, prepare and store, there was no water in the taps or toilet, and cash machines, mobile phones and the internet stopped working.

It advises checking the source of all information, warning that “states and organisations are already trying to influence our values and how we act ... and reduce our resilience and willingness to defend ourselves”.

A detailed page of “home preparedness tips” advises the population to stock up on water bottles, warm clothing and sleeping bags, and “non-perishable food that can be prepared quickly, requires little water or can be eaten without preparation”.

In the event of armed conflict, it says, “everyone is obliged to contribute and everyone is needed” for Sweden’s “total defence”: anyone between 16 and 70 “can be called to assist in the event of the threat of war and war”.

Sweden has not been at war with another country for more than 200 years. If it is attacked, the leaflet says, “we will never give up. All information to the effect that resistance is to cease is false.
