Lagos State House of Assembly passes N874bn budget one month to end of Governor Ambode’s tenure

On Monday, the Lagos state house of assembly passed the state’s 2019 appropriation bill of N873.532 billion for 2019, barely a month to the end of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s tenure.

The approval came more than 80 days after the governor presented the appropriation bill of N852.316 billion on February 5, to the state assembly. The passage followed the adoption of the report and recommendations of the house committee on budget and economic planning, headed by Gbolahan Yishawu (APC-Eti-Osa II).

The house approved N393,841,387,020 from the consolidated revenue fund for recurrent expenditure and N479,691,073,705 from development revenue fund for capital expenditure. The budget size thereby totalled N873,532,460,725 which is N21.216 billion higher than the budget size presented by Ambode. Mudashiru Obasa, the speaker of the house, commended Yishawu and members of his committee for a thorough scrutiny of the budget.

“That a bill for a law to authorise the issue and appropriation of N393,841,387,020 from the Consolidated Revenue Fund for recurrent expenditure and N479,691,073,705 from Development Fund for capital expenditure thereby totalling a budget size of N873,532,460,725 for the Year ending 31st December, 2019 be passed into law,” Obasa said.

The house passed the bill into law after Obasa had conducted a voice-vote on each of the allocations for ministries, departments and agencies. Obasa directed Azeez Sanni, the clerk of the house, to send a copy of the bill to Ambode for his assent.

The 2019 budget is N287.68 billion lesser than that of 2018, which stood at N1.04 trillion. The budget has a capital expenditure of N462.757 billion and a recurrent expenditure of N389.560 billion. The capital to recurrent ratio of the budget stood at 54:46.

President Trump describes Mexico as one of the 'most dangerous country' in the world

President Trump has described Mexico as one of the world’s "most dangerous" countries in a Monday night tweet.

The president claimed that drug cartels are "in total control" of the area south of the U.S. border and warned that Mexico "must eradicate this problem."

"The Coyotes and Drug Cartels are in total control of the Mexico side of the Southern Border. They have labs nearby where they make drugs to sell into the U.S. Mexico, one of the most dangerous country’s in the world, must eradicate this problem now. Also, stop the MARCH to U.S" Trump tweeted.

Just last week, Trump claimed that Mexican soldiers pulled their guns on U.S. troops "as a diversionary tactic" to cover for drug smugglers.

Two U.S. soldiers were stopped earlier this month by Mexican soldiers who thought they had mistakenly crossed the border, at which time a Mexican soldier reportedly confiscated a service pistol from one of the troops. The majority of drugs crossing the U.S.-Mexico border covertly enter at legal ports of entry.

In a second tweet Monday, President Trump repeated calls for Democrats to back tougher immigration laws. "If the Democrats don’t give us the votes to change our weak, ineffective and dangerous Immigration Laws, we must fight hard for these votes in the 2020 Election!" he wrote.

Last PDP lawmaker in Lagos assembly finally defects to APC

Dipo Olorunrinu, the only Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) member in the Lagos state house, has defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Olorunrinu, who represented Amuwo-Odofin constituency I, lost his re-election bid to Mojisola Alli-Macaulay, APC candidate, in March 9 house of assembly election with just 278 votes. He, however, vowed not to challenge the result at the election tribunal.

The lawmaker informed the house of his defection on Monday at the plenary through a letter titled: “Letter of Defection from PDP to APC,” and addressed to Mudashiru Obasa, the speaker.

The letter was read by Azeez Sanni, the clerk of the assembly. Olorunrinu had earlier said that in 2015, there were eight PDP members in the house but seven defected, adding that, in all sincerity he doesn't have any regret. He said he was happy to still find himself in the midst of great administration.

Olorunrinu apologised to the speaker for his late defection. He said he has spoken with his constituents, stakeholders of different cadres on the decision to join the “moving train”.

The speaker welcomed Olorunrinu to APC and commended him for his decision while other APC lawmakers also received the defector into the party.

Two arrested over photos of Emiliano Sala's body in the morgue which was shared online

A man and a woman have been arrested after photos purportedly showing Emiliano Sala's body lying in a morgue were shared online.

The woman, 48, and man, 62, were arrested in February after they allegedly obtained the pictures of the footballer’s remains. Their arrest has just come to light after one of the images was made public.

The photo allegedly shows the Argentinian striker’s remains at the Holly Tree Lodge mortuary in Bournemouth after the star’s death in a plane crash.

Wiltshire Police said: "There is no evidence to suggest a break-in at the mortuary, and no evidence to suggest that any staff from the mortuary, or indeed any other council employees, are involved in any wrongdoing."

The suspects, both from Wiltshire, were arrested on suspicion of unauthorised access to computer material.

A file of evidence has been sent to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to decide if it will bring criminal charges, said Detective Inspector Gemma Vinton.

Ms Vinton added: "My thoughts remain with Emiliano’s family for the pain they have endured throughout the last three months, and who should not have to go through the additional anguish of knowing such distressing images have circulated on the internet."

According to Metro UK, Linda Barker, head of bereavement services at Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council, said: "We have been working with Wiltshire and Dorset Police to ascertain how images from Holly Tree Lodge mortuary were obtained.

"Maintaining the private and respectful environment of the mortuary remains an absolute priority."

Boko Haram members earn $3,000 daily but Nigerian soldiers get N1,000 - FG official, Sidi Ali Mohammed says

A member of the Presidential Committee on the North East Initiative (PCNI), Dr. Sidi Ali Mohammed, has disclosed that Boko Haram members receive as much as $3,000 daily which he claims serves as payment for carrying out terrorist attacks in the North-East since 2014.

Mohammed made this disclosure at the Presentation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Sub-Sahara Africa’s Economic Outlook Report, in Abuja on Monday April 29th.

According to Mohammed, the payment makes the N1,000 daily allowance paid to Nigerian troops at the war front ridiculous.

“I will give you an example. The Nigerian military for example, gets N1, 000 per day for being in the North East, at the war front, as an allowance. The same North-East, where if you are a member of Boko Haram you get $3,000 per day as allowance. So it is lucrative. Sometimes, they even give you money upfront. So we must do something about the youth from where they are recruiting.” he said

Shell on challenge is the latest challenge to hit the internet and doctors are warning of the dangers

The latest challenge to hit the internet is the "shell on" challenge. This challenge sees children eating food with the wrap or shell on just to go viral.

The new social media craze has been attempted by a number of people and they filmed it and shared online.

Some of the teenagers are seen eating food together with the plastic bag it came with after their friends challenged them to swallow things like banana peels, cardboard and cores of apples.

Liam Hamm, a pupil at McClintock High School in Tempe, Arizona, was filmed on Snapchat swallowing carrots and their packaging.

The video was captioned: "Y’all eat your carrots without the shell?"

Speaking to the Democrat and Chronicle, the boy said: "It just looks funny, because it’s not really a shell but people are calling things shells. I guess that is what’s funny about it."

The "Shell on" challenge replaced the "Tide Pod" challenge, which saw people eating laundry detergent pods.

As the challenge gains momentum, doctors have warned teenagers not to eat plastic. But this warning hasn't stopped people from filming themselves doing the challenged and sharing online.

P!nk reveals she's had multiple miscarriages since she was a teenager

Pink has spoken out about the secret heartache of having a miscarriage at the age of 17.

While addressing lyrics on her album Hurts 2B Human, the 39-year-old singer said she was prepared to have the child after falling pregnant as a teenager. But she lost the baby and has lost "several" other pregnancies since then.

Pink, who is now a mother-of-two, said she felt like her body was "broken" and "hated her" because it failed to give her a child.

In an interview with USA Today, Pink said: "I’ve always had this very tomboy, very strong gymnast body, but actually at 17, I had a miscarriage.

"And I was going to have that child. But when that happens to a woman or a young girl, you feel like your body hates you and like your body is broken, and it’s not doing what it’s supposed to do.

"I’ve had several miscarriages since, so I think it’s important to talk about what you’re ashamed of, who you really are and the painful s**t."

On the song Happy, Pink spoke about hating her body and feeling like her body hated her since the age of 17.

Pink first spoke about having a miscarriage in 2010 on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. At the time, she was pregnant with her daughter Willow and she was nervous about losing her.

Willow was later born in 2011. She also went on to have son Jameson in 2016.
