WHY ARE WE DRIFTING BACK TO THE WOES OF THE PAST?—(5 Minutes Read).

Without mincing words,Nigeria as a nation is gradually drifting back to the woes of the past that portrays nothing but a blur and a bleak future with the recent advent of fuel scarcity being gradually witnessed across the Lagos Metropolis.

 

Initially, it seems unbelievable and unexpected when the news or rumour started filtering around that fuel is gradually becoming scarce but the reality dawned when it was observed in my vicinity and neighbourhood  queque of vehicles waiting to be attended to fuel attendants in the fuel filling stations.

This kind of experience has been the order of the day in some years ago when the festive period beckons but it became abated at some point and we all think that the days of gloom is over until recently when this unpalatable reality pop up and splashed on our face like a piece of shit.

 

 

fuel scarcity 2.jpg

The kind of break experienced across the length and breadth of the entire Nigerian nation from fuel scarcity was somehow believed to be as an outcome of the magic wand pulled by the preset administration of All Progressive Congress when the issue of fuel subsidy was partially scrapped leading to the hike of fuel skyrocketting to high heaven.

 

Eventhough, the Nigerian masses accepted their fate after so many unabated hullabaloo about the removal of fuel subsidy that made the pump prices of fuel to soar to high heaven at 145naira per litres for petrol and 180naira per litres for diesel,this removal have been able to offer temporary succour in preventing the scarcity of this product.

The realities on ground about fuel stations being jampacked with vehicles with varied volumes of Jerry-can at display by consumers really shows that the present administration is gradually loosing the magic wand or the magic wand that made the perpectual fuel scarcity been experienced around festive period is gradually becoming weak and it is about reaching the breaking point.

 

 

FUEL SCARCITY 3.jpg

The issue of constant supply of fuel has been a source and a topic of debate in the time past with all the political parties and their aspirants been seen to have maximized this situation as a source of electoral campaign and manifestos in the time past but one could see that it is just a lip- sevice that might have been orchestrated as a political gimmick and sophistry to deceive innocent Nigeria in order for them to get their vote during electioneering.

 

 

Past and Present administrations have made constant,continuous and unending promises concerning the revamping and maintenance of our moribund refineries in order for the refineries to be able to meet up maximally with the local consumption supply of fuel but this has been a dream and a drive that has not been able to materialised into fruition and it can be submitted to have been a source of siphoning public fund.

 

It is of neccessity to point out at this point that there is a need for Nigeria government to start thinking about the construction and commissioning of new set of state of the art refineries if the old ones can not be revamped and maintained.

 

A situation whereby the present Minister of State submitted at a point in time that the commencement of full production at the Dangote Private Refinery in Lagos will boost local production capacity is an indication that the Nigeria Government is irresponsible in the discharge of their statutory function of governance.

 

At this point in the histrory of our national existence,the only way out of this impasse is for Nigeria government to commence the construction of new sets of refineries plant or the should see to the removal of policy bottleneck that is preventing public private partnership(PPP) from taking over the business of crude oil refinery in Nigeria.

It is the full introduction of cutting edge technology that will see to local refinery of crude oil maximized to meet local demand and consumption that Nigeria as a country will be delivered from the woes of the past.

 

 

Any deviation from this, is an indication to the fact that the realities of long queque might be a permanent reality that Nigerians have to manage and cope with for a long period of time.

 

 

There is a need for our government to be prompt and decisive in their approach to nib the bud so that this ugly trend that is unexpected and uncalled for in the 21st century from an oil producing state is a national embarrassment and digrace that all dick and harry must find possible solution to.

 

In conclusion,Nigeria will emerge a great nation if local production is maximized in meeting the local consumption demand.

NEWS EDITORIAL:WHY TRIGGERING ANOTHER WAVES OF TENSION IN THE MIDDLE EAST?—-(8 MINUTES READ)

The kind of ambience and tranquility obtainable between Israel and Palestine for some times now have been encouraging and and it beats the wildest imagination of people all over the world.Kudos to the ingenuity of everyone who contributed to the maintenance of peace between this two nations of the world. It was expected to  become a means of strengthening  world peace across board all over the world by building on the benefits accruable from the establishment of peace which the entire human race has been yearning and longing for in the time past.

 

 

While reading and perusing on a particular online news published on http://www.reuters.com yesterday by Dan Williams in Nidalal-Mughrabi,I kept asking myself questions that bothered my mind why our world is being tossed around by war-mogering leaders.

 

 

“As if to say that the tension in the world is not yet enough,he(Trump) with all other allies decided to trigger another waves of tension in the middle-east that might make the fragile peace being managed across the length and breadth of the entire world to varnish into thin air”.

 

 

Libya, Yemen, Syria, Iraq and many parts of the world have already become a failed state due to civil wars and battles that nobody knows when it will fizzle out.ISIS,Al-Queda,Boko Haram,Hamas, Hezbollah and others are some of the terrorist groups that has held the world down at a point and there has not been any solution till now.

 

 

“Why could a President of the United State of America be bothered and concerned about the location of the capital of another sovereign state.”

 

 

jERUSALEMPALESTINE.jpg

 

Without any doubt,it is easier to conclude that there is an ulterior motive by Donald Trump in dipping his hand to a very sensitive issue of this magnitude which might made mainy Islamic countries and other muslim fatefuls to feel cheated thereby leading to some of them  taking up arms and other weapon of destruction.


(Page 1)

 

“At the onset of this declaration,it was reported that the Islamist group Hamas urged Palestinians on Thursday to abandon peace efforts and launch a new uprising against Israel to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as its capital”.

 

 

“Protest so far have been scattered and largely non-violent.But dozens of Palenstinians gathered at two points on the gaza border fence with Israel and threw rocks at soldiers on the other side.Inside Gaza, thousands of Palestinians rallied,some chanting:”

“Death to America!Death to the fool Trump! and burning tires”.

 

These are some of the reports published on http://www.reuter.com yesterday pointing to the advent of another challenge that is potent enough to lead to another humanitarian crisis that might be difficult for the world and the United Nation UN to handle.

 

 

This present realities will put more innocent souls and christians at the risk of being susceptible to attack and dangers all over the report.

 

 

“According to report published yesterday, it was reported that Palestinians switched off christians lights on trees outside Bethlehem’s church of the Nativity,where chrisitians believe Jesus was born, and in Ramallah,next to the burial site of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in protest”.

THE CONTENDING ISSUE

According to the report on http://www.reuter.com,Israel considers Jerusalem its eternal and indivisible capital.Palestinians want the capital of an independent state of theirs to be in the city’s eastern sector,which Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East War and annexed in a move never recognized internationally.

 

 

Trump announced his administration would begin a process of moving the u.s embassy in Tel Aviv to  Jerusalem, a step expected to take years and one that his predecessors opted not to take to avoid inflaming tensions.

 

 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,who hailed Trump’s announcement as a “historic landmark”,said on Thursday many countries would fellow the U.S move and contacts were underway.He did not name the countries he was referring to.

 

 

trump 1

“President Trump has immortalized himself in the chronicles of our capital.His name will now be held aloft alongside other names connected to the glorious history of Jerusalem and our people,”he said in a speech at Isreal’s Foreign Ministry.

 

 

On the contrary,according to the report on http://www.reuters.com,the EU’s foreign policy Chief Federica Mogherini said:

 

 

“The European Union has a clear and united position.We believe the only realistic solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine is based on two states and with Jerusalem as the capital”.

 

 

“STRATEGIC DANGER”

 

Israel and the United states consider Hamas,which has fought three wars with Israel since 2007,a terrorist organization.Hamas does not recognize Israel’s right to exist and its suicide bombings helped spearhead the last intifada,from 2000 to 2005.

 

 

“We have given instruction to all Hamas members and to all its wings to be fully ready for any new instructions or orders that may be given to confront this strategic danger that threatens Jerusalem and threatens Palestine,”Hanniyeh said.

 

 

“United Jerusalem is Arab and Muslim, and it is the capital of the state of Palestine,all of Palestine,”he said,referring to territory including Israel as well as the Hamas-controlled Gaza strip and Israeli occupied West Bank”.

 

 

Haniyeh called on Western-backed Abbas to withdraw from peacemaking with Israel and on Arabs to boycott the Trump administration.

 

 

Abbas said on Wednesday the United States had abdicated its role as a mediator in peace efforts.Palestinian secular and Islamist factions have called for a general strike and rallies on Thursday.

 

 

Fearing recrimination could disrupt reconciliation efforts between Hamas and Fatah,Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Al-Hamdallah and other Fatah delegates arrived in Gaza on Thursday to meet Hamas.

 

The International community does not recognize Israeli sovereignity over whole of Jerusalem, believing its status should be resolved in negotiations.No other country has its embassy in Jerusalem.

 

 

Trump decision fulfils a campaign promise and will please Republican conservatives and evangelicals who make up a sizeable portion of his domestic support.

 

 

He said it was not intended to tip the scale in favour of Israel and that any deal involving the future of Jerusalem would have to be negotiated by the parties,but move ws seen almost uniformly in Arab capitals as a sharp tilt towards Israel.

 

 

The United States is asking Israel to temper its response to the announcement because Washington expects a backlash and is weighing the potential threat to US facilities and people,according to a state Department document seen by Reuter.

 

Protest broke out in areas of Jordan’s capital,Amman,inhabitated by Palestinian refugees, and several hundred protesters gathered outside the U.S consulate in Istanbul on Wednesday after Trump’s announcement.

 

 

Protests are expected on Thursday in Pakistan,where the government said of Trump’s move:

 

 

“It is a serious setback to the rule of law and international norms.Its signals a severe blow to the Middle East peace process”.

 

 

Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan said the United States was “exposing its colonial ambition in muslim territory”.

 

 

In conclusion, there is a need for bevery leader all over the world to be deep in thought and their approach to issues that has to do with their subordinates and followers should be handled carefully in order to prevent exposing their subject to the risk of extremism that might stand as a resultant effect of their actions or inactions concerning a subject matter.

 

 

There is a need for the establishment of an  enduring peace all over the world.

TODAYS EDITORIAL REVIEW–If you’re not happy with government, vote right in 2019—Ooni.—(5 minutes read)

This was the submission made by the Ooni of Ile-Ife,Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunnusi in an interview on “THE OSASU SHOW’ recently while addressing Nigerian Youth on the need to stop complaining about Nigerian government, rather they should put on their thinking cap in putting the right set of people into political offices through their vote in 2019.

 

 

In the light of this,this is the editorial review on the aforementioned by mylittlesimplethought”:

 

 

No doubt about it, he was right by challenging Nigerian youth to stop being spectators that spend bunch of their time lamenting and complaining about the present realities in Nigeria now.

 

 

It is not a gain saying that  Nigerian youth has been at the receiving end of bad form of governance that our so called leaders are known for.

 

 

The economy is at a low ebb, unemployment is skyrocketting, poor infracstructure, health sector and educational sectors are not left behind in being poorly managed by the present day government.Insecurity and poor electricity provision are part of the present realities the nigerian society is baffling with with no single solution in view that will put an end to these series of abnormalities and anomalies the nigerian society is experiencing.

 

 

The blame should be apportioned to nobody but the nigerian youths that have been passive and have no interest in their contribution to leadership in Nigeria.

 

 

Democratic principles gives us an opportunity to determine our fate every four  years in casting our vote for the right person but instead of conrtributing our quota in electing leaders that will serve us well, we are always fond of electing wrong and incompetent leaders as long as they are financially capable  and buoyant enough to use money to buy our votes and after electing them and they refuse to give us the dividends of democracy, we starts complaining and lamenting about the poor state of things in our society.

 

 

Instead of complaining and wailing, all hands must be on deck to take our destiny into our hands in casting our votes for leaders who understands deeply the what is needed to salvage the plight of the masses at the moment of our national existence.

 

 

In a country whereby leadership is defined in the concept of corruption and personal aggradisement to the point whereby some individuals can even be submitted to be far richers than the Nigerian State,there is nothing meaningful that will be outcome of such a society other than criminalities and vices with the future of our youth being a mirage.

 

 

The Nigerian society is in dire need of leaders that believed in sacrifices and selflessness, not leaders that are interested in leadership because of the juicy realities any of such position provides for those who are opportuned to navigate their ways to the corridor of power through crooked means.

 

 

The time to take action is now,we are almost getting to another electioneering period whereby many will surface from no where as a saviour but at the end when they get to the place of leadership, they end up playing brutus on people that invested their time and energy to the election that made them what they are.

 

 

Presently, there is no need for a dibia and soothsayer to tell all of us that we are in a deep shit with the way things are now.Many states government are having catalogues of salary arrears that are yet to be paid with their states been bankrupt now and the inhabitatnts of such states keep wallowing in abject poverty.

 

 

Nigeria is a nation that is blessed with leaders that knows little or nothing about the concept of leadership and this is really affecting the society at large with little or nothing to show as dividends of democracy since 1999.

 

 

It is time all nigerian youth stand up and rise up to their responsibility to fashion a way whereby our society becomes better.We should stop wasting our time lammenting about poor performance of our so called leaders who are bent on pushing this country into extinction and abyss of darkness.

 

 

The only time that give us the opportunity to get things right is every four years whereby we are always opportuned to decide our fate on the platform of balloting.Our fates for the future needs to be decided by us and it has to be developed and designed to the realm whereby posterity will have something meaningful as a record or breathough that they will meet on ground.

 

 

No one pray for battles and wars but the present realities and confusion been rampart in the Nigerian States might spell doom for the entire Nigerian nation with the drums of seccession, terrorism and extremism, Fulani Herdsmen attack,militancy, kidnapping and every other source of vices being in reality in the Nigerian Society.

 

 

The Nigerian States really need restructuring as it is submitted by erstwhile military ruler but resrtructuring is not enough if the structure of governance is still centre around prolifigacy and corruption is not niped in the bud on time.If we restructure without finding a means of eliminating the thirst of citizens of Nigeria for sharp practices, it will just amount to an effort in futility.

 

 

 

We are to build our future by ourselves by being active and participatory in taking the mantle of leadership that has the core of its tenets in sacrifice, servanthood and selflessness.It is until when this is done that our hope of building an eggalitarian society becomes achievable and a reality that will transcend the present and the coming generation will end up being a partaker of what is obtainable in this form of leadership.

 

 

The Nigerian nation must be saved from the grip of those who are bent and unrepentant in their desire in turning Nigeria to a failed state.

 

 

The time is ripe and rife for all of us to put our hands on deck to deliver this great nation from the grip of bad leadership that has made a country once known as a giant of Africa to be wallowing and struggling to live up to her expectation in every ramification of national existence.

 

 

Lets work together to build a great nation.

SAUDI ARABIA SAYS CINEMAS WILL BE ALLOWED FROM EARLY 2018.—(3 Minutes Read).

In a report published on Reuters on the 11th of December 2017.

It was reported that Saudi Arabia said on Monday that public cinemas would be allowed in the conservative kingdom for the first time in over 35years,and that the first ones were likely to open next March.

Cinemas were banned in the early 1980s under pressure from Islamists as Saudi society turned towards a restrictive form of the religion that discouraged public entertainment and many forms of  mixing between men and women.

 

Under reforms led by 32-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman,the government is easing many of those restrictions,and also plans to lift a ban on women driving next year.It says the economy,hit hard by low oil prices will benefit from the growth of an entertainment industry.

 

cROWN pRINCE

 

 

“Openning cinemas will act as a catalyst for economic growth and diversification,”said Minister of Culture and Information,Awwad bin Salah Alawwad.

 

 

“By developing broader cultural sector we will create new employment and training opportunities as well as enriching the kingdom’s entertainment options”.

 

By 2030,Saudi Arabia is expected to open over 300 cinmas with more than 2000 screens,a government statement said,predicting the cinema industry would contribute over 90billion riyals($24 Billion) to the economy and create 30,000 permanent jobs by 2030.

Regional cinema chain operators are already believed to be studying entry into Saudi Arabia,industry sources said.

 

A  commission chaired by Alawwad will announce details of licensing and regulations over the next few weeks ,the government said.

In a country whereby leadership is defined in the concept of corruption and personal aggradisement to the point whereby some individuals can even be submitted to be far richers than the Nigerian State,there is nothing meaningful that will be outcome of such a society other than criminalities and vices with the future of our youth being a mirage.

 

 

The Nigerian society is in dire need of leaders that believed in sacrifices and selflessness, not leaders that are interested in leadership because of the juicy realities any of such position provides for those who are opportuned to navigate their ways to the corridor of power through crooked means.

 

 

The time to take action is now,we are almost getting to another electioneering period whereby many will surface from no where as a saviour but at the end when they get to the place of leadership, they end up playing brutus on people that invested their time and energy to the election that made them what they are.

 

 

Presently, there is no need for a dibia and soothsayer to tell all of us that we are in a deep shit with the way things are now.Many states government are having catalogues of salary arrears that are yet to be paid with their states been bankrupt now and the inhabitatnts of such states keep wallowing in abject poverty.

 

 

Nigeria is a nation that is blessed with leaders that knows little or nothing about the concept of leadership and this is really affecting the society at large with little or nothing to show as dividends of democracy since 1999.

 

 

It is time all nigerian youth stand up and rise up to their responsibility to fashion a way whereby our society becomes better.We should stop wasting our time lammenting about poor performance of our so called leaders who are bent on pushing this country into extinction and abyss of darkness.

 

 

The only time that give us the opportunity to get things right is every four years whereby we are always opportuned to decide our fate on the platform of balloting.Our fates for the future needs to be decided by us and it has to be developed and designed to the realm whereby posterity will have something meaningful as a record or breathough that they will meet on ground.

 

 

No one pray for battles and wars but the present realities and confusion been rampart in the Nigerian States might spell doom for the entire Nigerian nation with the drums of seccession, terrorism and extremism, Fulani Herdsmen attack,militancy, kidnapping and every other source of vices being in reality in the Nigerian Society.

 

 

The Nigerian States really need restructuring as it is submitted by erstwhile military ruler but resrtructuring is not enough if the structure of governance is still centre around prolifigacy and corruption is not niped in the bud on time.If we restructure without finding a means of eliminating the thirst of citizens of Nigeria for sharp practices, it will just amount to an effort in futility.

 

 

 

We are to build our future by ourselves by being active and participatory in taking the mantle of leadership that has the core of its tenets in sacrifice, servanthood and selflessness.It is until when this is done that our hope of building an eggalitarian society becomes achievable and a reality that will transcend the present and the coming generation will end up being a partaker of what is obtainable in this form of leadership.

 

 

The Nigerian nation must be saved from the grip of those who are bent and unrepentant in their desire in turning Nigeria to a failed state.

 

 

The time is ripe and rife for all of us to put our hands on deck to deliver this great nation from the grip of bad leadership that has made a country once known as a giant of Africa to be wallowing and struggling to live up to her expectation in every ramification of national existence.

 

 

Lets work together to build a great nation.

NEWS EDITORIAL:WHAT IS WRONG WITH US IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD?

This is the question that occupied my mind when I read a particular publication on http://www.lailasblog.com as news filter around the entire Nigeria nation of a governor who appointed  and swear-in her sister as commisioner for Happiness and Couple’s fulfillment.


(Page 1)

The original publication goes thus:

 

According to http://www.lailasblog.com,Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has sworn-in 28 commissioners and 27 Transistion committee chairmen for the 27 local government councils in the state.

 

He charged them to prove their worth in the service of the state and her people.

 

One of the commissioners sworn in by the governor is his biological sister,Mrs.Ogechi Ololo(nee Okorocha).She is now the  state’s commissioner for Happiness and Couple’s Fulfillment.

Ololo,who is married to Chuks,an engineer,was the All Progressive Congress’s candidate into the House of Representatives for the Owerri Federal Constituency seat in 2015 and she has served in various capacities since Okorocha because the state governor in 2011.

rOCHAS SISTER

 

She had, before her new appointment,served as her brother’s Deputy chief of staff and special Adviser on Domestic Matters.

 

Swearing in the new commissioners and the Transition committee chairmen on Monday at the Imo International Convention Centre,Owerri,the governor charged them to leave their marks in their respective ministries and local governments.

 

He urged them to see themselves as men and women on a rescue mission.The governor added they had come to be part of the success story of his administration.

Okorocha said,

“You are the priviledged group that has the opportunity to make names for yourselves. I want to remind all of you that this appointment is not business as usual.We shall not tolerate any sharp practice or corruption of any type.Neither shall we accept indolence or laziness.You have been called to duty to help us achieve our vision in the Rescue Mission project”

“At this moment ,I charge you all to be good ambassadors of the Rescue Mission wherever you find yourselves.To the Transition Committee chairmen,you must ensure that ongoing projects must be completed especially the schools,chapels etc”.

 

The commissioners sworn in and their portfolios are:

  • Prof.Nnamdi Obiaraeri—–Information;

  • Lady Ugochi Nnana-Okoro—Agric.and food security;

  • Gertrude Oduka—Primary and Secondary Education;

  • Dr.Jones Uzoka–Niger Delta Affairs;

  • Uchendu Mark—-Public Utilities;

  • Gerald Okolie—-Rural development;

 

Others are:

  • Dr.Cyril Okafor—–Tourism;

  • Emmanuel Ojinere—Trade and Investment;

  • Chief Lasbery Anyanwu—Transport;

  • Onwueyiagwu Valentine—Youth Development;

  • Mrs Ngozi Njoku—-Gender and social Development;

  • Chief Joseph Udoji—Works;

  • Achilike Nwawuike—Internal Resources and Pension Matters;

  • Prof.Emenalo Chizoba—Tertiary Education;

  • Nwamerenini Chukwuka—-Labour;and

  • Dr.Iyke Njoku—Planning,Budget and Statistics.

The Transition Committee chairmen sworn in include:

  • Okechukwu Onyechere—Ideato South;

  • Sir Anyehe Okeneme——Ikeduru;

  • Julius Onyenecho—-Isiala Mbano;

  • Akas Paschal—-Isu;

  • Steve Odoemena—-Mbaitoli;

  • Eke Chudi—-Ngor Okpala;

  • Aloysius Onwuegbuchulam—Njaba;

  • Paschal Onwukaike—-Nkwerre.


(Page 2)

This sort of reality is quite overwhelming and unexpected in the corridor of Nigeria polity whereby the needful is left undone and unattended to,shadows are being dished out to Nigeria citizens and substance has become a mirage with people’s expectations and hope of a brighter and a better society being dashed by the crop of clowns elected as our leaders in this part of the world.

 

“What could have warrant such a display of mediocrity and insensitiveness?”

 

“What will end up being the impart and impact of a commissioner who was given a portfolio of Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’Fulfilment if not that another avenue or channel is being created to siphon state treasury?”

 

It is a pity that  we find ourselves in a mess that no one is sure when an end will come to it.This is another continous and constant display of incompetence that is eaten deep the fabrics of our society.Leaders in this part of the world are leaders who lacked ideas and some of them can be submitted to be suffering from dementia that seems to be chronic and incurable.

If we fail to build our society on the concept of good leadership,it cannot be too extreme to submit that Nigeria as a nation is on a long walk to freedom.

NEWS EDITORIAL:WHY TRIGGERING ANOTHER WAVES OF TENSION IN THE MIDDLE EAST?—-(8 MINUTES READ)

The kind of ambience and tranquility obtainable between Israel and Palestine for some times now have been encouraging and and it beats the wildest imagination of people all over the world.Kudos to the ingenuity of everyone who contributed to the maintenance of peace between this two nations of the world. It was expected to  become a means of strengthening  world peace across board all over the world by building on the benefits accruable from the establishment of peace which the entire human race has been yearning and longing for in the time past.

 

 

While reading and perusing on a particular online news published on http://www.reuters.com yesterday by Dan Williams in Nidalal-Mughrabi,I kept asking myself questions that bothered my mind why our world is being tossed around by war-mogering leaders.

 

 

“As if to say that the tension in the world is not yet enough,he(Trump) with all other allies decided to trigger another waves of tension in the middle-east that might make the fragile peace being managed across the length and breadth of the entire world to varnish into thin air”.

 

 

Libya, Yemen, Syria, Iraq and many parts of the world have already become a failed state due to civil wars and battles that nobody knows when it will fizzle out.ISIS,Al-Queda,Boko Haram,Hamas, Hezbollah and others are some of the terrorist groups that has held the world down at a point and there has not been any solution till now.

 

 

“Why could a President of the United State of America be bothered and concerned about the location of the capital of another sovereign state.”

 

 

jERUSALEMPALESTINE.jpg

 

Without any doubt,it is easier to conclude that there is an ulterior motive by Donald Trump in dipping his hand to a very sensitive issue of this magnitude which might made mainy Islamic countries and other muslim fatefuls to feel cheated thereby leading to some of them  taking up arms and other weapon of destruction.


(Page 1)

 

“At the onset of this declaration,it was reported that the Islamist group Hamas urged Palestinians on Thursday to abandon peace efforts and launch a new uprising against Israel to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as its capital”.

 

 

“Protest so far have been scattered and largely non-violent.But dozens of Palenstinians gathered at two points on the gaza border fence with Israel and threw rocks at soldiers on the other side.Inside Gaza, thousands of Palestinians rallied,some chanting:”

“Death to America!Death to the fool Trump! and burning tires”.

 

These are some of the reports published on http://www.reuter.com yesterday pointing to the advent of another challenge that is potent enough to lead to another humanitarian crisis that might be difficult for the world and the United Nation UN to handle.

 

 

This present realities will put more innocent souls and christians at the risk of being susceptible to attack and dangers all over the report.

 

 

“According to report published yesterday, it was reported that Palestinians switched off christians lights on trees outside Bethlehem’s church of the Nativity,where chrisitians believe Jesus was born, and in Ramallah,next to the burial site of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in protest”.


(Page 2)

 

 

THE CONTENDING ISSUE

According to the report on http://www.reuter.com,Israel considers Jerusalem its eternal and indivisible capital.Palestinians want the capital of an independent state of theirs to be in the city’s eastern sector,which Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East War and annexed in a move never recognized internationally.

 

 

Trump announced his administration would begin a process of moving the u.s embassy in Tel Aviv to  Jerusalem, a step expected to take years and one that his predecessors opted not to take to avoid inflaming tensions.

 

 

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,who hailed Trump’s announcement as a “historic landmark”,said on Thursday many countries would fellow the U.S move and contacts were underway.He did not name the countries he was referring to.

 

 

trump 1

“President Trump has immortalized himself in the chronicles of our capital.His name will now be held aloft alongside other names connected to the glorious history of Jerusalem and our people,”he said in a speech at Isreal’s Foreign Ministry.

 

 

On the contrary,according to the report on http://www.reuters.com,the EU’s foreign policy Chief Federica Mogherini said:

 

 

“The European Union has a clear and united position.We believe the only realistic solution to the conflict between Israel and Palestine is based on two states and with Jerusalem as the capital”.

 

 

“STRATEGIC DANGER”

 

Israel and the United states consider Hamas,which has fought three wars with Israel since 2007,a terrorist organization.Hamas does not recognize Israel’s right to exist and its suicide bombings helped spearhead the last intifada,from 2000 to 2005.

 

 

“We have given instruction to all Hamas members and to all its wings to be fully ready for any new instructions or orders that may be given to confront this strategic danger that threatens Jerusalem and threatens Palestine,”Hanniyeh said.

 

 

“United Jerusalem is Arab and Muslim, and it is the capital of the state of Palestine,all of Palestine,”he said,referring to territory including Israel as well as the Hamas-controlled Gaza strip and Israeli occupied West Bank”.

 

 

Haniyeh called on Western-backed Abbas to withdraw from peacemaking with Israel and on Arabs to boycott the Trump administration.

 

 

Abbas said on Wednesday the United States had abdicated its role as a mediator in peace efforts.Palestinian secular and Islamist factions have called for a general strike and rallies on Thursday.

 

 

Fearing recrimination could disrupt reconciliation efforts between Hamas and Fatah,Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Al-Hamdallah and other Fatah delegates arrived in Gaza on Thursday to meet Hamas.

 

The International community does not recognize Israeli sovereignity over whole of Jerusalem, believing its status should be resolved in negotiations.No other country has its embassy in Jerusalem.

 

 

Trump decision fulfils a campaign promise and will please Republican conservatives and evangelicals who make up a sizeable portion of his domestic support.

 

 

He said it was not intended to tip the scale in favour of Israel and that any deal involving the future of Jerusalem would have to be negotiated by the parties,but move ws seen almost uniformly in Arab capitals as a sharp tilt towards Israel.

 

 

The United States is asking Israel to temper its response to the announcement because Washington expects a backlash and is weighing the potential threat to US facilities and people,according to a state Department document seen by Reuter.

 

Protest broke out in areas of Jordan’s capital,Amman,inhabitated by Palestinian refugees, and several hundred protesters gathered outside the U.S consulate in Istanbul on Wednesday after Trump’s announcement.

 

 

Protests are expected on Thursday in Pakistan,where the government said of Trump’s move:

 

 

“It is a serious setback to the rule of law and international norms.Its signals a severe blow to the Middle East peace process”.

 

 

Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan said the United States was “exposing its colonial ambition in muslim territory”.

 

 

In conclusion, there is a need for bevery leader all over the world to be deep in thought and their approach to issues that has to do with their subordinates and followers should be handled carefully in order to prevent exposing their subject to the risk of extremism that might stand as a resultant effect of their actions or inactions concerning a subject matter.

 

 

There is a need for the establishment of an  enduring peace all over the world.

WHY ARE WE DRIFTING BACK TO THE WOES OF THE PAST?—(5 Minutes Read).

Without mincing words,Nigeria as a nation is gradually drifting back to the woes of the past that portrays nothing but a blur and a bleak future with the recent advent of fuel scarcity being gradually witnessed across the Lagos Metropolis.

 

Initially, it seems unbelievable and unexpected when the news or rumour started filtering around that fuel is gradually becoming scarce but the reality dawned when it was observed in my vicinity and neighbourhood  queque of vehicles waiting to be attended to fuel attendants in the fuel filling stations.

This kind of experience has been the order of the day in some years ago when the festive period beckons but it became abated at some point and we all think that the days of gloom is over until recently when this unpalatable reality pop up and splashed on our face like a piece of shit.

 

 

fuel scarcity 2.jpg

The kind of break experienced across the length and breadth of the entire Nigerian nation from fuel scarcity was somehow believed to be as an outcome of the magic wand pulled by the preset administration of All Progressive Congress when the issue of fuel subsidy was partially scrapped leading to the hike of fuel skyrocketting to high heaven.

 

Eventhough, the Nigerian masses accepted their fate after so many unabated hullabaloo about the removal of fuel subsidy that made the pump prices of fuel to soar to high heaven at 145naira per litres for petrol and 180naira per litres for diesel,this removal have been able to offer temporary succour in preventing the scarcity of this product.

The realities on ground about fuel stations being jampacked with vehicles with varied volumes of Jerry-can at display by consumers really shows that the present administration is gradually loosing the magic wand or the magic wand that made the perpectual fuel scarcity been experienced around festive period is gradually becoming weak and it is about reaching the breaking point.

 

 

FUEL SCARCITY 3.jpg

The issue of constant supply of fuel has been a source and a topic of debate in the time past with all the political parties and their aspirants been seen to have maximized this situation as a source of electoral campaign and manifestos in the time past but one could see that it is just a lip- sevice that might have been orchestrated as a political gimmick and sophistry to deceive innocent Nigeria in order for them to get their vote during electioneering.

 

 

Past and Present administrations have made constant,continuous and unending promises concerning the revamping and maintenance of our moribund refineries in order for the refineries to be able to meet up maximally with the local consumption supply of fuel but this has been a dream and a drive that has not been able to materialised into fruition and it can be submitted to have been a source of siphoning public fund.

 

It is of neccessity to point out at this point that there is a need for Nigeria government to start thinking about the construction and commissioning of new set of state of the art refineries if the old ones can not be revamped and maintained.

 

A situation whereby the present Minister of State submitted at a point in time that the commencement of full production at the Dangote Private Refinery in Lagos will boost local production capacity is an indication that the Nigeria Government is irresponsible in the discharge of their statutory function of governance.

 

At this point in the histrory of our national existence,the only way out of this impasse is for Nigeria government to commence the construction of new sets of refineries plant or the should see to the removal of policy bottleneck that is preventing public private partnership(PPP) from taking over the business of crude oil refinery in Nigeria.

It is the full introduction of cutting edge technology that will see to local refinery of crude oil maximized to meet local demand and consumption that Nigeria as a country will be delivered from the woes of the past.

 

 

Any deviation from this, is an indication to the fact that the realities of long queque might be a permanent reality that Nigerians have to manage and cope with for a long period of time.

 

 

There is a need for our government to be prompt and decisive in their approach to nib the bud so that this ugly trend that is unexpected and uncalled for in the 21st century from an oil producing state is a national embarrassment and digrace that all dick and harry must find possible solution to.

 

In conclusion,Nigeria will emerge a great nation if local production is maximized in meeting the local consumption demand.

This kind of experience has been the order of the day in some years ago when the festive period beckons but it became abated at some point and we all think that the days of gloom is over until recently when this unpalatable reality pop up and splashed on our face like a piece of shit.

The kind of break experienced across the length and breadth of the entire Nigerian nation from fuel scarcity was somehow believed to be as an outcome of the magic wand pulled by the preset administration of All Progressive Congress when the issue of fuel subsidy was partially scrapped leading to the hike of fuel skyrocketting to high heaven.

 

Eventhough, the Nigerian masses accepted their fate after so many unabated hullabaloo about the removal of fuel subsidy that made the pump prices of fuel to soar to high heaven at 145naira per litres for petrol and 180naira per litres for diesel,this removal have been able to offer temporary succour in preventing the scarcity of this product.

The realities on ground about fuel stations being jampacked with vehicles with varied volumes of Jerry-can at display by consumers really shows that the present administration is gradually loosing the magic wand or the magic wand that made the perpectual fuel scarcity been experienced around festive period is gradually becoming weak and it is about reaching the breaking point.

 

 

FUEL SCARCITY 3.jpg

The issue of constant supply of fuel has been a source and a topic of debate in the time past with all the political parties and their aspirants been seen to have maximized this situation as a source of electoral campaign and manifestos in the time past but one could see that it is just a lip- sevice that might have been orchestrated as a political gimmick and sophistry to deceive innocent Nigeria in order for them to get their vote during electioneering.

 

 

Past and Present administrations have made constant,continuous and unending promises concerning the revamping and maintenance of our moribund refineries in order for the refineries to be able to meet up maximally with the local consumption supply of fuel but this has been a dream and a drive that has not been able to materialised into fruition and it can be submitted to have been a source of siphoning public fund.

 

It is of neccessity to point out at this point that there is a need for Nigeria government to start thinking about the construction and commissioning of new set of state of the art refineries if the old ones can not be revamped and maintained.

 

A situation whereby the present Minister of State submitted at a point in time that the commencement of full production at the Dangote Private Refinery in Lagos will boost local production capacity is an indication that the Nigeria Government is irresponsible in the discharge of their statutory function of governance.

 

At this point in the histrory of our national existence,the only way out of this impasse is for Nigeria government to commence the construction of new sets of refineries plant or the should see to the removal of policy bottleneck that is preventing public private partnership(PPP) from taking over the business of crude oil refinery in Nigeria.

It is the full introduction of cutting edge technology that will see to local refinery of crude oil maximized to meet local demand and consumption that Nigeria as a country will be delivered from the woes of the past.

 

 

Any deviation from this, is an indication to the fact that the realities of long queque might be a permanent reality that Nigerians have to manage and cope with for a long period of time.

 

 

There is a need for our government to be prompt and decisive in their approach to nib the bud so that this ugly trend that is unexpected and uncalled for in the 21st century from an oil producing state is a national embarrassment and digrace that all dick and harry must find possible solution to.

 

In conclusion,Nigeria will emerge a great nation if local production is maximized in meeting the local consumption demand.

TECHNOLOGY IS DESTROYING A CHILDREN’S IMAGINATION.—(3 Minutes Read).

In a recent report published on http://www.femalefirst.co.uk on the 23rd of November 2017.

 

According to a new survey, technology is reportedly killing a children’s imagination following the rapid decrease of imaginary friends.

 

tECHNOLOGY 1

 

A new survey conducted by Snarzaroo has learnt just 17percent of children have imaginary friends,which is a rapid decline from the 2001 record that found almost half of British kids had made up invisible playmate.

 

And the study believes devices,such as iPads and other electronic goods are the culprit and are damaging a child’s creativity.

 

tECHNOLOGY 2

 

Speaking about research, Dr Amanda Gunner-who is the founder and CEO of Fundamentally children- said:

 

“Imaginative play is hugely beneficial for childre-being able to transport themselves into -make believe worlds with imaginary characters can help them make sense of their world or provide an escape from it(something that supports good mental health in later life).

 

“Suspending reality give children the opportunity to think outside of the box and be as creative as they like,with none of the restrictions that are placed on real life activity”.

 

And Gummer has urged parents to encourage “imaginative play” or artistic outlets.

 

She continued:

 

“Parents can help children engage in imaginative play by providing them with a balanced play diet and managing the amount of time children spend as passive receivers of digital contents”.

“Tools such as face paints, building blocks,dressing up clothes and play dough can help to stimulate this”.

 

“Free, child-led play is the super-food of the play diet and can balance the less imaginative play activities that are sometimes found in high toys and screen play”.

NEWS EDITORIAL:WHAT IS WRONG WITH US IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD?

This is the question that occupied my mind when I read a particular publication on http://www.lailasblog.com as news filter around the entire Nigeria nation of a governor who appointed  and swear-in her sister as commisioner for Happiness and Couple’s fulfillment.


(Page 1)

The original publication goes thus:

 

According to http://www.lailasblog.com,Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has sworn-in 28 commissioners and 27 Transistion committee chairmen for the 27 local government councils in the state.

 

He charged them to prove their worth in the service of the state and her people.

 

One of the commissioners sworn in by the governor is his biological sister,Mrs.Ogechi Ololo(nee Okorocha).She is now the  state’s commissioner for Happiness and Couple’s Fulfillment.

Ololo,who is married to Chuks,an engineer,was the All Progressive Congress’s candidate into the House of Representatives for the Owerri Federal Constituency seat in 2015 and she has served in various capacities since Okorocha because the state governor in 2011.

rOCHAS SISTER

 

She had, before her new appointment,served as her brother’s Deputy chief of staff and special Adviser on Domestic Matters.

 

Swearing in the new commissioners and the Transition committee chairmen on Monday at the Imo International Convention Centre,Owerri,the governor charged them to leave their marks in their respective ministries and local governments.

 

He urged them to see themselves as men and women on a rescue mission.The governor added they had come to be part of the success story of his administration.

Okorocha said,

“You are the priviledged group that has the opportunity to make names for yourselves. I want to remind all of you that this appointment is not business as usual.We shall not tolerate any sharp practice or corruption of any type.Neither shall we accept indolence or laziness.You have been called to duty to help us achieve our vision in the Rescue Mission project”

“At this moment ,I charge you all to be good ambassadors of the Rescue Mission wherever you find yourselves.To the Transition Committee chairmen,you must ensure that ongoing projects must be completed especially the schools,chapels etc”.

 

The commissioners sworn in and their portfolios are:

  • Prof.Nnamdi Obiaraeri—–Information;

  • Lady Ugochi Nnana-Okoro—Agric.and food security;

  • Gertrude Oduka—Primary and Secondary Education;

  • Dr.Jones Uzoka–Niger Delta Affairs;

  • Uchendu Mark—-Public Utilities;

  • Gerald Okolie—-Rural development;

 

Others are:

  • Dr.Cyril Okafor—–Tourism;

  • Emmanuel Ojinere—Trade and Investment;

  • Chief Lasbery Anyanwu—Transport;

  • Onwueyiagwu Valentine—Youth Development;

  • Mrs Ngozi Njoku—-Gender and social Development;

  • Eke Chudi—-Ngor Okpala;

  • Aloysius Onwuegbuchulam—Njaba;

  • Paschal Onwukaike—-Nkwerre.


(Page 2)

This sort of reality is quite overwhelming and unexpected in the corridor of Nigeria polity whereby the needful is left undone and unattended to,shadows are being dished out to Nigeria citizens and substance has become a mirage with people’s expectations and hope of a brighter and a better society being dashed by the crop of clowns elected as our leaders in this part of the world.

 

“What could have warrant such a display of mediocrity and insensitiveness?”

 

“What will end up being the impart and impact of a commissioner who was given a portfolio of Commissioner for Happiness and Couples’Fulfilment if not that another avenue or channel is being created to siphon state treasury?”

 

It is a pity that  we find ourselves in a mess that no one is sure when an end will come to it.This is another continous and constant display of incompetence that is eaten deep the fabrics of our society.Leaders in this part of the world are leaders who lacked ideas and some of them can be submitted to be suffering from dementia that seems to be chronic and incurable.

If we fail to build our society on the concept of good leadership,it cannot be too extreme to submit that Nigeria as a nation is on a long walk to freedom.

IRAN-IRAQ EARTHQUAKE:445 PEOPLE DEAD FROM DEVASTATING QUAKE IN BORDER REGION.–(4 Minutes Read).

According to a publication on http://www.independent.co.uk on the 13th of November 2017 by Bethan Mckernan in Beirut,death toll in magnitude quake climbs as rescuers continue search for survivors in a badly hit Iranian town of Sarpol-e-Zahab.

 

The number of people killed in an earthquake that struck Iran’s western province has risen to 407,officials have said.

 

Iranian state news said on Monday that most of the casualties are from border town of Sarpol-e-zahab in Kermanshah province.

 

Behman Saedi,a spokesman for the country’s crisis management headquarters was quoted by the semi-official Fars and Tasnim news agencies as saying the death toll was now 407.

 

A further 6700 people have been injured, and the emergency services warned the toll was likely to increase as they gained access to more remote mountanous areas.

 

A total of 70,000 people are in need of emergency shelter across fourteen affected provinces around the country,the Iranian Red Crescent warned in a statement.

 

Electricity has been cut off in many cities across the two countries and fear of aftershocks has driven many people outside despite cold November temperatures.

 

Rescue workers continued despite the difficulties posed by landslides and health ministry put out a call for emergency blood donations.

 

At least 14 provinces across the country had been affected,local media reported.Awoman and her baby were reportedly pulled out alive from the rubble.

“We need a shelter”,a middle-aged man in Sarpol-e-Zahab told state TV.

“Where is the aid?Where is the help?”.

 

His family could not spend another night outside in cold weather, he said.

 

Relief workers said while much aid had been pledged, there was an immediate need for blankets,childrens’clothes,medicine and large cans to store drinking water.TV aired footage of some people weeping next to corpses shrouded in blankets.

 

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khmenei has offered his condolences and three days of mourning have been announced in Kermanshah.Anational day of mourning was announced for Tuesday.

 

In Iraq, the earthquake killed at least seven people and injured 535 others, all in the country’s northern semi-autonomous Kurdish region,according to its interior ministry.

 

Iran-iraq

 

Turkey, despite recent tensions over the Iraqi Kurdish Regional Government’s(KRG) controversial independence referendum,said on Monday it would send aid including tents, beds,heaters and food to help alleviate the situation expressing “deep sadness”at the loss of life.

 

Many of the heavily damaged complexes in Sarpol-e-Zahab were part of the construction projects begun under former hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The  disparity in the fatality figures between the two countries immediately drew questions from Iranians, especially because so much of the town was new.

 

Kokab Fard, a 49-year-old woman from the town, said that she could only flee empty-handed when her apartment complex began to shake.”Immediately after I managed to get out, the building collapsed…I have no access to my belongings,”she said.

 

Raza Mahammadi,51,said he and his family ran to the alley following the first shock.”I tried to get back to pick some stuff but it totally collapsed in the second wave.”Mr Mohammadi said.

 

The magnitude 7.3 quake was centred was centred 31kilometres(19miles) outside the eastern Iraqi City of Halabja, the US Geological Survey said.It struck at a relatively shallow depth of 23.2kilometres(144miles),which usually leads to broader surface-level damage, and tremous recorded as far west as the Israeli coast of the Mediterenean and as far South of Baghdad.

 

“I was sitting with my kids having dinner and suddenly the building was just dancing in the air”Majida Ameer, who ran out of her Baghdad home,said.

 

“I thought at first that it was a huge bomb.But then heard everyone around me screaming:’Earthquake!”‘

 

Iran, which sits on several geological fault lines, is prone to earhquakes.A magnitude 6.6 quake in 2003 killed 26,000 in the city of Bam.

BUCKINGHAM PALACE JUST ADDRESSED THOSE PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE ENGAGEMENT RUMOURS.—( 3 Minutes Read).

In a report filed by Christina Pellegrini on the 26th of November 2017 on MSN News.

 

There’s a major royal rumor circulating that Prince Harry is about to pop the question to Meghan Markle.

 

And it seems like the whole world is here for it.In fact,Buckingham Palace just addressed the engagement rumors.And now, we don’t know what to think.

 

If you can believe it, Prince William and Kate Middleton wed nearly seven years ago,and so much has happened since then.

 

William and Kate are already expecting their third child.Everyone seems to be ready for royal wedding part two.Even the bookmakers agree-they have suspended bets on a 2018 royal wedding because the possibility seems so highat this point.

 

Prince Harry 2

 

It’s no secret that things are serious between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

 

According to reports,Markle has moved out of her Toronto residence and into Nottingham Cottage,Harry’s residence at Kessington Palace.Apparently,it’s not so much of an “if” they get engaged,but “when”.And that could seriously shake up the British Monarchy.

 

Perhaps eyes on the royal family even more so than usual,given that this year marked the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death.

 

We’ve also seen more incresible fairytale wedding(most recently,Serena Williams’s to Alexis Ohanian), and that’s only got us jonessing to see more.

 

So, what does the royal family have to say about all  this?

 

Well,according to Hello!;a spokesperson from Buckingham Palace responded to the rumors,only saying that they’would not give a running commentary on Harry’s love life.

 

If you ask us,that seems very suspicious.

 

Royal expert Katie Nitcholl agrees that an engagement seems like it’s comin soon, according to ET.But she does make a strong point that “it really is all about timing”.

 

“You have to remember there are other engagements and events coming up in the royal calendar that an engagement simply couldn’t clash with,”Nicholl to ET.”I think that the new year is probably a more realistic prospect for an engagement announcement.

IRAN-IRAQ EARTHQUAKE:445 PEOPLE DEAD FROM DEVASTATING QUAKE IN BORDER REGION.–(4 Minutes Read).

According to a publication on http://www.independent.co.uk on the 13th of November 2017 by Bethan Mckernan in Beirut,death toll in magnitude quake climbs as rescuers continue search for survivors in a badly hit Iranian town of Sarpol-e-Zahab.

 

The number of people killed in an earthquake that struck Iran’s western province has risen to 407,officials have said.

 

Iranian state news said on Monday that most of the casualties are from border town of Sarpol-e-zahab in Kermanshah province.

 

Behman Saedi,a spokesman for the country’s crisis management headquarters was quoted by the semi-official Fars and Tasnim news agencies as saying the death toll was now 407.

 

A further 6700 people have been injured, and the emergency services warned the toll was likely to increase as they gained access to more remote mountanous areas.

 

A total of 70,000 people are in need of emergency shelter across fourteen affected provinces around the country,the Iranian Red Crescent warned in a statement.

 

Electricity has been cut off in many cities across the two countries and fear of aftershocks has driven many people outside despite cold November temperatures.

 

Rescue workers continued despite the difficulties posed by landslides and health ministry put out a call for emergency blood donations.

 

At least 14 provinces across the country had been affected,local media reported.Awoman and her baby were reportedly pulled out alive from the rubble.

“We need a shelter”,a middle-aged man in Sarpol-e-Zahab told state TV.

“Where is the aid?Where is the help?”.

 

His family could not spend another night outside in cold weather, he said.

 

Relief workers said while much aid had been pledged, there was an immediate need for blankets,childrens’clothes,medicine and large cans to store drinking water.TV aired footage of some people weeping next to corpses shrouded in blankets.

 

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khmenei has offered his condolences and three days of mourning have been announced in Kermanshah.Anational day of mourning was announced for Tuesday.

 

In Iraq, the earthquake killed at least seven people and injured 535 others, all in the country’s northern semi-autonomous Kurdish region,according to its interior ministry.

 

Iran-iraq

 

Turkey, despite recent tensions over the Iraqi Kurdish Regional Government’s(KRG) controversial independence referendum,said on Monday it would send aid including tents, beds,heaters and food to help alleviate the situation expressing “deep sadness”at the loss of life.

 

Many of the heavily damaged complexes in Sarpol-e-Zahab were part of the construction projects begun under former hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The  disparity in the fatality figures between the two countries immediately drew questions from Iranians, especially because so much of the town was new.

 

Kokab Fard, a 49-year-old woman from the town, said that she could only flee empty-handed when her apartment complex began to shake.”Immediately after I managed to get out, the building collapsed…I have no access to my belongings,”she said.

 

Raza Mahammadi,51,said he and his family ran to the alley following the first shock.”I tried to get back to pick some stuff but it totally collapsed in the second wave.”Mr Mohammadi said.

 

The magnitude 7.3 quake was centred was centred 31kilometres(19miles) outside the eastern Iraqi City of Halabja, the US Geological Survey said.It struck at a relatively shallow depth of 23.2kilometres(144miles),which usually leads to broader surface-level damage, and tremous recorded as far west as the Israeli coast of the Mediterenean and as far South of Baghdad.

 

“I was sitting with my kids having dinner and suddenly the building was just dancing in the air”Majida Ameer, who ran out of her Baghdad home,said.

 

“I thought at first that it was a huge bomb.But then heard everyone around me screaming:’Earthquake!”‘

 

Iran, which sits on several geological fault lines, is prone to earhquakes.A magnitude 6.6 quake in 2003 killed 26,000 in the city of Bam.

CIA TRIED TO KILL FIDEL CASTROL WITH POISON PEN ON DAY OF KENNEDY’S ASSASSINATION,JFK FILES REVEAL.— (3 Minutes Read).

According to the report published by Tom Powell of Evening Standard online news.

 

The CIA was working to kill Fidel Castro on the day John F Kennedy was assassinated,newly released files reveal.

 

The latest batch of JFK documents,published online on Thursday contain details of a US plot to kill the Cuban leader with a lethal ballpoint pen.

 

FIDEL CASTRO

 

President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas on November 22,1963.On the same day, a CIA officer in Paris gave a  Cuban asset a pen rigged with a syringe.

“The evidence indicates that the meeting was under way at the very moment President Kennedy was shot”the document says.

 

The plot was one of many considered by US defense forces to remove Castro, who was feared by Kennedy as detailed in the files.

“We cannot overemphasize the extent to which responsible Agency officers felt themselves subject to kennedy administration’s severe pressures to do something about Castro and his regime”the report says.

 

The release of more than 13000 records by US National Archives is the fourth release of documents this year.

 

Most of the overall collection comprising about five million pages of records has been released to the public but some documents have been withheld over the years to protect individuals intelligence sources and methods and national security.

 

The latest documents are being released according to a law that President George H.W.Bush signed on October 26,1992.

 

That law required all records related to the assassination being released 25 years, unless the president says doing so would harm intelligence, law enforcement,military operations or foreign relations.

 

Last month, on the 25-year deadline,President Donald Trump wrote in a memorandum that he had”no choice” but to agree to requests from some government agencies to continue withholding certain information.

 

Mr.Trump, however, directed agencies to again review each of their redactions during the next 180days.

 

He said agency heads needed to be extremely circumspect in recommending that information still needed to be withheld from the public.

 

Government agencies have until March to tell the National Archives why any part of their records should still be redacted.

 

The records included in this latest public release have not been re-reviewed by the agencies as part of the process.

 

FIDEL CASTRO (2)

 

Conspiracy theorists have long questioned the official conclusion the Mr Kennedy was murdered in Dallas by Lee Harvey Oswald and that he was acting alone.

CIA RELEASES VAST BIN LADEN ARCHIVE SEIZED IN COMPOUND.

In a punchng.com” news culled on the 1st of November 2017 by “www.wordsmithscibe.com”.It was recorded that the Central Intelligence Agency on Wednesday released a vast archive of documents and video seized in the 2011 US raid on Pakistani compound that killed Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.

 

Researchers from Washington think-tank who has prior access to the newly declassified dossier say it includes Bin Laden’s son’s wedding video and diaries left by the Saudi-born militant.

 

WORDSMITH SCIBE.

 

“Todays’ release….provides the opportunity for the American people to gain further insights into the plans and workings of this terrorist organization”said CIA director Mike Pompeo.

 

The CIA has put online 470,000 additional files seized in May 2011 when US Navy SEALS burst into the Abbettabad compound and shot dead the leader of Al-Qaeda global extremist network.

 

According to Thomas Joscelyn and Bill Roggio, scholars from the foundation for Defense of Democracies who were allowed to study the trove before it was made public, it provides new insights.

 

“These documents will go a long way to help fill in some of the blanks we still have about Al Qaeda’s leadership”.Roggio said.

 

The inclusion of Hamza Bin Laden’s wedding video for example, give the world public the first image of Bin Laden’s favorite son as an adult -an image apparently shot in Iran.

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY:QUEEN WATCHES WHITEHALL SERVICE FROM BALCONY FOR THE FIRST TIME AS PRINCE CHARLES LAYS HER WREATH. —(4 Minutes Read)

It was a remembrance Sunday indeed yesterday-the 12th of November 2017 as the Queen of England watches whitehall service from balcony for the first time as Prince Charles lays her wreath.

 

In a news report published at 2:11PM on the 12th of November 2017 by TELEGRAPH REPORTER.

 

The Prince of Wales had led the nation in honouring the Country’s war dead on Remembrance Sunday, as the Queen observed the service from the balcony.

 

The Queen asked Charles to lay the wreath at the Cenotaph, in the first time the monarch has broken with tradition and not performed the symbolic duty whle in attendance at the Whitehall Service.

 

A two minute silence took place at 11am and wreaths were laid at the foot of the Whitehall Memorial by Senior royals and political leaders including Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn.

 

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh watched the service from a Foreign and commonwealth balcony along with the Duchess of Cornwall.

 

The Duchess of Cambridge, countess of Weaaex and Princess Alexandra watched from a second balcony, looking on in sombre contemplation.

 

For Royal-watchers,the Cenotaph ceremony will have been a significant moment as the heir of the throne represents his mother in one of the key public duties of the year.

 

Announcing the decision last month, Buckingham Palace said the Queen wished to be by her husband side of the balcony and had asked the Prince to lay a wreath instead.

 

The Duke’s equerry laid his wreath, before the Prince laid his own wreath,his second of the day.

 

The Duke of Cambridge, Prince Harry,the Duke of York laid their own wreath together, followed by the Earl of Wessex, the Princess Royal and the Duke of Kent.

 

Other political figures laying wreaths included Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Liberal Democrats leader Vince Cable,and commons speaker John Bercow.

 

Joining the Queen in observing the service from Foreign office balconies were the Duchess of Cambridge, the Duchess of Cornwall,the countess of Wessex, Princess Alexandra, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence.

 

The firing of gun marked the end of silence, and The Lat Post was sounded by the Buglers of the Royal Marines before the wreath was laid.

 

Prince Charles has laid a wreath before on behalf of the Queen in 1983 when she was out of the country, and when the Queen was in South Africa in 1999 she laid a wreath at the cenotaph in Durban.

 

This year marks the centenaries of women’s service in the regular armed forces, the Battle of Passchendaele and the creation of the commonwealth War Graves commission, as well as the 100th birthday of forces’sweetheart, Dame Vera Lynn.

 

It also marks the 75th anniversary of the Battle of El Alamein and the creation of the RAF Regiment.

 

Irish Taoseach Leo Varadkar laid a green laurel wreath at the Cenotaph at Enmiskillen in CoFermanagh.

 

It is 30years since an IRA bombing there killed 12 on Remembrance Sunday.

 

Northern Ireland Secretary James Brokenshire, DUP leader Ariene Foster,Police Service of Nothern Ireland Chief of Cinstable George Hamilton and the US representative in Berlfast laid wreaths.

THE OLDEST PRESIDENT IN THE WORLD RESIGNED.–(3 Minutes Read).

History  was made today as the oldest president in the world and the oldest president in Africa resigned after a long year of service as one of the longest serving head of state in the continent of Africa.

 

Though, the resignation came as a result of military intervention that was tagged as “bloodless corrrection”.

 

Now, it is celebration across the length and breadth of Zimbabwe.

 

The street of Harare and its environ will be filled with pomp and peangentry now.

 

What a dawn of a new era for all Zimbabwan.

 

In a report published on the 21st of November 2017 by SAHARA Reporter in NEW YORK.

 

Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe has resigned, according to parliament speaker Jacob Mudenda.

 

The 93-year-old’s resignation followed the commencement of impeachment proceeding on Tuesday.

 

Mr.Mudenda annoumced that Mr.Mugabe resigned in a letter written to parliament and consequently suspended the impeachment proceedings.

 

Mr.Mugabe, who has ruled the Southern African nation since 1980 was expected to announce his resignation on Sunday after his ruling ZANU-PF ousted him as leader.The party had given him 24hours to resign as president or face impeachment.

 

In his nationally broadcast address to Zimbabwe,however,Mr.Mugabe defied expectations and said he would remain in power.

 

mugabe resigns 1

 

Last week ,Zimbabwe’s military placed Mr Mugabe under house arrest and urged him to resign peacefully.

 

The military takeover was prompted by Mr Mugabe’s sacking of his Vice-President,Emmerson Mnangagwa,a move seen by many in the military as a purge intended to clear path of succession for his wife,Grace Mugabe.

 

Military tanks rolled into the Capital City of Harare on November 14 and the military announced the next day that the president had been placed under house arrest.

 

Mr.Mugabe has ruled Zimbabwe since the country gained independence in 1980.While seen by many across the continent as a heroic liberator and anti-coloniast,Mr.Mugabe drew criticism for his authoritarian grip on power and poor handling of the national economy.

DEATH AT SEA.–(6 Minutes Read).

The publication was originally presented on my facebook page on the 8th of November 2917 and I believe it will serve a purpose of informing my avid readers, viewers and followers.

It goes thus:

 

The recent publications about casualties recorded at the Mediterrenean Sea that engulfed every media space in which about twenty-six Nigerian women or ladies lost their lifes is quite appalling, disheartning and disappointing.

 

It can be concluded to be result of a society that has lost her values in all ramifications thereby making her inhabitants and occupants to start looking for solutions desperately even at the expense of their lifes.

 

Our society in this part of the world is a society that has her consciousness and sensitivity platformed on some ideologies and philosophies that are quite suicidal in all facet sicne the idealogies and philosophies are premised on the fact that critical and desperate situations warrant critical and desperate solution, a kind of belief that trigger and spur the superiority of extremism over existentialism.

 

There are some sorts of creed that makes the essence of existentialism to be subjected to extremism thereby making existentialism to be inferior in all ramification.Hence, many prefer the concept of extremism to existentialism even if it warrants putting their lifes on the line.

 

Our society has made some people to believe in the worship of god of mammon whereby you are waht you are based on the financial status quo you are known for.Hence, everybody struggle and strife immensely without giving a damn about whose ox is gored to accummulate properties and acquire wealth at the expense of their lifes and that of the next person around them.

 

Hence, they become hell bent in search of greene pasturesby embarking on a suicide mission to Europe through the desert and through the sea.

 

Many arguments are on course now about Nigeria government being indifferent to the news of these ladies that lost their lifes.I wonder why we keep blaming Nigeria government on this without subjecting the issue at hand to root cause analysis that will proffer meaningful solutions to this issue this menace that is eating deep the fabrics of Nigerian society.

 

Day-in-day-out, there have been a lot of jingles sponsored by the National Orientation Agency NOA warning desperate and innocent Nigerians on the dangers of embarking on a self-destructive journey into Europe through desert and through the sea but we can see that many of us have allowed our reasoning to become blur by our inordinate quest for wealth and materialism at all cost.

 

Since they are all ladies and their corpses were discovered close to Italy, it can be concluded that they are on a journey to add to the census and statistics of prostitution netwiork and drug trafficking cartel in Italy but their hope was dashed and varnished into thin air in the middle of the high sea.

 

It is pertinent for the Nigerian society to be subjested to treatment and sensitization against the evil of inordinate quest for materilaism and wealth.

 

Any society that glorify and grandeurises money and all its offers will end up trading and mortgaging her future for money accompanied with the loss of lifes of her young who are believed to be leaders of tommorrow.

 

A progressive society has her yopung ones weeping for the death of the old but a retrogressive society that is hell bent on wealth and material acquisition at all cost will have the old weeping for the death of the young ones.

 

Such society can be asserted to have a bleak future.

 

What makes a bad society is when the elders in such society are busy doing nothing in checkmating the extreme desire of the younger generation for money and gold.

 

They ended up loosing their lifes in search of greener pastures because they forget that the pastures are always green anywhere in the world even in the desrt but time and season for pastures becoming green differs from each other.

 

Therefore,it is seasonal.

 

It is when the millenia understand the concept of time and season as it affects life that they will stop embarking on an endeavour that will take their lifes or soil their image.

 

The Nigeria Government shoild engage more stringent measures to curtail and nib in the bud the cartel of human trafficking that are orchestrating the illegal exodus of Nigerian youth into the heart of Europe in order to facilitate their illicit and dirty businesses that have to do with prostitution, drug trafficking and human trafficking.

death at sea (1)

The Nigeria borders are known to be porous and permissible, and this has made this illegal trade of human beings so easy in this part of the world.Presently, there should be an arm of our security agencies and parameters that will be empowered constitutionally to trail and burst this anti-social organisation that is feeding fat on the innocence of desperate Nigerians.

 

In the meantime, all media spacies were awashed with news of the burial conducted on the 17th nopf November 2017 by the Italian Government with the news of the burial becoming an International headlines.The results of the autopsies have being confirmed that the girls likely drowned,according to the Guardian.

 

‘There were no signs that they had been raped or physically abused’ a medic who worked on the postmortem examinations of the bodies said.”They most likely couldn’t swim”.

 

All but two of the girls found remain nameless.The two young women authoritioes were able to identify were pregnant,Reuters reported.

Marian Shaka,was named by her husband, and Osato Osaro, was identified by her brother who had been in the boat with her according to CNN.

 

In the meantime, the effort of Italian Government for giving them a befitting burial is appreciated and recognised eventhough Nigeria Government didnt see any reason in being represented in the burial of her citizen that lost their lifes.

The Nigeria borders are known to be porous and permissible, and this has made this illegal trade of human beings so easy in this part of the world.Presently, there should be an arm of our security agencies and parameters that will be empowered constitutionally to trail and burst this anti-social organisation that is feeding fat on the innocence of desperate Nigerians.

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY:QUEEN WATCHES WHITEHALL SERVICE FROM BALCONY FOR THE FIRST TIME AS PRINCE CHARLES LAYS HER WREATH. —(4 Minutes Read)

It was a remembrance Sunday indeed yesterday-the 12th of November 2017 as the Queen of England watches whitehall service from balcony for the first time as Prince Charles lays her wreath.

 

In a news report published at 2:11PM on the 12th of November 2017 by TELEGRAPH REPORTER.

 

The Prince of Wales had led the nation in honouring the Country’s war dead on Remembrance Sunday, as the Queen observed the service from the balcony.

 

The Queen asked Charles to lay the wreath at the Cenotaph, in the first time the monarch has broken with tradition and not performed the symbolic duty whle in attendance at the Whitehall Service.

 

A two minute silence took place at 11am and wreaths were laid at the foot of the Whitehall Memorial by Senior royals and political leaders including Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn.

 

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh watched the service from a Foreign and commonwealth balcony along with the Duchess of Cornwall.

 

The Duchess of Cambridge, countess of Weaaex and Princess Alexandra watched from a second balcony, looking on in sombre contemplation.

 

For Royal-watchers,the Cenotaph ceremony will have been a significant moment as the heir of the throne represents his mother in one of the key public duties of the year.

 

Announcing the decision last month, Buckingham Palace said the Queen wished to be by her husband side of the balcony and had asked the Prince to lay a wreath instead.

 

The Duke’s equerry laid his wreath, before the Prince laid his own wreath,his second of the day.

 

The Duke of Cambridge, Prince Harry,the Duke of York laid their own wreath together, followed by the Earl of Wessex, the Princess Royal and the Duke of Kent.

 

Other political figures laying wreaths included Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Liberal Democrats leader Vince Cable,and commons speaker John Bercow.

 

Joining the Queen in observing the service from Foreign office balconies were the Duchess of Cambridge, the Duchess of Cornwall,the countess of Wessex, Princess Alexandra, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence.

 

The firing of gun marked the end of silence, and The Lat Post was sounded by the Buglers of the Royal Marines before the wreath was laid.

 

Prince Charles has laid a wreath before on behalf of the Queen in 1983 when she was out of the country, and when the Queen was in South Africa in 1999 she laid a wreath at the cenotaph in Durban.

 

This year marks the centenaries of women’s service in the regular armed forces, the Battle of Passchendaele and the creation of the commonwealth War Graves commission, as well as the 100th birthday of forces’sweetheart, Dame Vera Lynn.

 

It also marks the 75th anniversary of the Battle of El Alamein and the creation of the RAF Regiment.

 

Irish Taoseach Leo Varadkar laid a green laurel wreath at the Cenotaph at Enmiskillen in CoFermanagh.

 

It is 30years since an IRA bombing there killed 12 on Remembrance Sunday.

 

Northern Ireland Secretary James Brokenshire, DUP leader Ariene Foster,Police Service of Nothern Ireland Chief of Cinstable George Hamilton and the US representative in Berlfast laid wreaths.

CIA TRIED TO KILL FIDEL CASTROL WITH POISON PEN ON DAY OF KENNEDY’S ASSASSINATION,JFK FILES REVEAL.— (3 Minutes Read).

According to the report published by Tom Powell of Evening Standard online news.

 

The CIA was working to kill Fidel Castro on the day John F Kennedy was assassinated,newly released files reveal.

 

The latest batch of JFK documents,published online on Thursday contain details of a US plot to kill the Cuban leader with a lethal ballpoint pen.

 

FIDEL CASTRO

 

President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas on November 22,1963.On the same day, a CIA officer in Paris gave a  Cuban asset a pen rigged with a syringe.

“The evidence indicates that the meeting was under way at the very moment President Kennedy was shot”the document says.

 

The plot was one of many considered by US defense forces to remove Castro, who was feared by Kennedy as detailed in the files.

“We cannot overemphasize the extent to which responsible Agency officers felt themselves subject to kennedy administration’s severe pressures to do something about Castro and his regime”the report says.

 

The release of more than 13000 records by US National Archives is the fourth release of documents this year.

 

Most of the overall collection comprising about five million pages of records has been released to the public but some documents have been withheld over the years to protect individuals intelligence sources and methods and national security.

 

The latest documents are being released according to a law that President George H.W.Bush signed on October 26,1992.

 

That law required all records related to the assassination being released 25 years, unless the president says doing so would harm intelligence, law enforcement,military operations or foreign relations.

 

Last month, on the 25-year deadline,President Donald Trump wrote in a memorandum that he had”no choice” but to agree to requests from some government agencies to continue withholding certain information.

 

Mr.Trump, however, directed agencies to again review each of their redactions during the next 180days.

 

He said agency heads needed to be extremely circumspect in recommending that information still needed to be withheld from the public.

 

Government agencies have until March to tell the National Archives why any part of their records should still be redacted.

 

The records included in this latest public release have not been re-reviewed by the agencies as part of the process.

 

FIDEL CASTRO (2)

 

Conspiracy theorists have long questioned the official conclusion the Mr Kennedy was murdered in Dallas by Lee Harvey Oswald and that he was acting alone.

IRAN-IRAQ EARTHQUAKE:445 PEOPLE DEAD FROM DEVASTATING QUAKE IN BORDER REGION.–(4 Minutes Read).

According to a publication on http://www.independent.co.uk on the 13th of November 2017 by Bethan Mckernan in Beirut,death toll in magnitude quake climbs as rescuers continue search for survivors in a badly hit Iranian town of Sarpol-e-Zahab.

 

The number of people killed in an earthquake that struck Iran’s western province has risen to 407,officials have said.

 

Iranian state news said on Monday that most of the casualties are from border town of Sarpol-e-zahab in Kermanshah province.

 

Behman Saedi,a spokesman for the country’s crisis management headquarters was quoted by the semi-official Fars and Tasnim news agencies as saying the death toll was now 407.

 

A further 6700 people have been injured, and the emergency services warned the toll was likely to increase as they gained access to more remote mountanous areas.

 

A total of 70,000 people are in need of emergency shelter across fourteen affected provinces around the country,the Iranian Red Crescent warned in a statement.

 

Electricity has been cut off in many cities across the two countries and fear of aftershocks has driven many people outside despite cold November temperatures.

 

Rescue workers continued despite the difficulties posed by landslides and health ministry put out a call for emergency blood donations.

 

At least 14 provinces across the country had been affected,local media reported.Awoman and her baby were reportedly pulled out alive from the rubble.

“We need a shelter”,a middle-aged man in Sarpol-e-Zahab told state TV.

“Where is the aid?Where is the help?”.

 

His family could not spend another night outside in cold weather, he said.

 

Relief workers said while much aid had been pledged, there was an immediate need for blankets,childrens’clothes,medicine and large cans to store drinking water.TV aired footage of some people weeping next to corpses shrouded in blankets.

 

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khmenei has offered his condolences and three days of mourning have been announced in Kermanshah.Anational day of mourning was announced for Tuesday.

 

In Iraq, the earthquake killed at least seven people and injured 535 others, all in the country’s northern semi-autonomous Kurdish region,according to its interior ministry.

 

Iran-iraq

 

Turkey, despite recent tensions over the Iraqi Kurdish Regional Government’s(KRG) controversial independence referendum,said on Monday it would send aid including tents, beds,heaters and food to help alleviate the situation expressing “deep sadness”at the loss of life.

 

Many of the heavily damaged complexes in Sarpol-e-Zahab were part of the construction projects begun under former hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The  disparity in the fatality figures between the two countries immediately drew questions from Iranians, especially because so much of the town was new.

 

Kokab Fard, a 49-year-old woman from the town, said that she could only flee empty-handed when her apartment complex began to shake.”Immediately after I managed to get out, the building collapsed…I have no access to my belongings,”she said.

 

Raza Mahammadi,51,said he and his family ran to the alley following the first shock.”I tried to get back to pick some stuff but it totally collapsed in the second wave.”Mr Mohammadi said.

 

The magnitude 7.3 quake was centred was centred 31kilometres(19miles) outside the eastern Iraqi City of Halabja, the US Geological Survey said.It struck at a relatively shallow depth of 23.2kilometres(144miles),which usually leads to broader surface-level damage, and tremous recorded as far west as the Israeli coast of the Mediterenean and as far South of Baghdad.

 

“I was sitting with my kids having dinner and suddenly the building was just dancing in the air”Majida Ameer, who ran out of her Baghdad home,said.

 

“I thought at first that it was a huge bomb.But then heard everyone around me screaming:’Earthquake!”‘

 

Iran, which sits on several geological fault lines, is prone to earhquakes.A magnitude 6.6 quake in 2003 killed 26,000 in the city of Bam.

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY:QUEEN WATCHES WHITEHALL SERVICE FROM BALCONY FOR THE FIRST TIME AS PRINCE CHARLES LAYS HER WREATH. —(4 Minutes Read)

It was a remembrance Sunday indeed yesterday-the 12th of November 2017 as the Queen of England watches whitehall service from balcony for the first time as Prince Charles lays her wreath.

 

In a news report published at 2:11PM on the 12th of November 2017 by TELEGRAPH REPORTER.

 

The Prince of Wales had led the nation in honouring the Country’s war dead on Remembrance Sunday, as the Queen observed the service from the balcony.

 

The Queen asked Charles to lay the wreath at the Cenotaph, in the first time the monarch has broken with tradition and not performed the symbolic duty whle in attendance at the Whitehall Service.

 

A two minute silence took place at 11am and wreaths were laid at the foot of the Whitehall Memorial by Senior royals and political leaders including Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn.

 

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh watched the service from a Foreign and commonwealth balcony along with the Duchess of Cornwall.

 

The Duchess of Cambridge, countess of Weaaex and Princess Alexandra watched from a second balcony, looking on in sombre contemplation.

 

For Royal-watchers,the Cenotaph ceremony will have been a significant moment as the heir of the throne represents his mother in one of the key public duties of the year.

 

Announcing the decision last month, Buckingham Palace said the Queen wished to be by her husband side of the balcony and had asked the Prince to lay a wreath instead.

CIA TRIED TO KILL FIDEL CASTROL WITH POISON PEN ON DAY OF KENNEDY’S ASSASSINATION,JFK FILES REVEAL.— (3 Minutes Read).

According to the report published by Tom Powell of Evening Standard online news.

 

The CIA was working to kill Fidel Castro on the day John F Kennedy was assassinated,newly released files reveal.

 

The latest batch of JFK documents,published online on Thursday contain details of a US plot to kill the Cuban leader with a lethal ballpoint pen.

 

FIDEL CASTRO

 

President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas on November 22,1963.On the same day, a CIA officer in Paris gave a  Cuban asset a pen rigged with a syringe.

“The evidence indicates that the meeting was under way at the very moment President Kennedy was shot”the document says.

 

The plot was one of many considered by US defense forces to remove Castro, who was feared by Kennedy as detailed in the files.

“We cannot overemphasize the extent to which responsible Agency officers felt themselves subject to kennedy administration’s severe pressures to do something about Castro and his regime”the report says.

 

The release of more than 13000 records by US National Archives is the fourth release of documents this year.

 

Most of the overall collection comprising about five million pages of records has been released to the public but some documents have been withheld over the years to protect individuals intelligence sources and methods and national security.

 

The latest documents are being released according to a law that President George H.W.Bush signed on October 26,1992.

 

That law required all records related to the assassination being released 25 years, unless the president says doing so would harm intelligence, law enforcement,military operations or foreign relations.

 

Last month, on the 25-year deadline,President Donald Trump wrote in a memorandum that he had”no choice” but to agree to requests from some government agencies to continue withholding certain information.

 

Mr.Trump, however, directed agencies to again review each of their redactions during the next 180days.

 

He said agency heads needed to be extremely circumspect in recommending that information still needed to be withheld from the public.

 

Government agencies have until March to tell the National Archives why any part of their records should still be redacted.

 

The records included in this latest public release have not been re-reviewed by the agencies as part of the process.

Conspiracy theorists have long questioned the official conclusion the Mr Kennedy was murdered in Dallas by Lee Harvey Oswald and that he was acting alone.
