SECURITY, THIRD TERM AGENDA: Buhari, Tinubu tackle Jonathan, hail El-Rufai

Soni Daniel, Regional Editor North; Emeka Mamah, Henry Umoru & Johnbosco Agbakwuru
ABUJA — Chieftains of the new opposition Mega party, All Progressives Congress, APC, General Muhammadu Buhari (Rtd), and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, yesterday, lamented that the government was concerned about its survival and was spending too much money on security at the expense of education.
Both spoke in Abuja at the presentation of a book, “Accidental Public Servant”, written by former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Mallam Nasir el- Rufai.
Buhari, in his address, regretted that unlike in the past when priority attention was given to education by the country’s leaders, the present system has not been paying more than two or five per cent to the sector.
Education first —Buhari
Buhari said: ‘The little I read about Accidental Public Servant reminded me of the visit of Obama to Ghana, leaving Nigeria and South Africa before returning to the United States. He did say that promoting democracy requires strong institutions not strong people. The British established strong institutions for us – the Police, the Civil Service, the Judiciary and the Military, that when compared to other countries, you will have some respect.

Annie Macaulay/Tuface Idibia wedding date finally announced!


After much dilly-dallying, the much anticipated wedding date of the power couple Tuface Idibia and Annie Macaulay has been announced by the bride.
Annie went on her facebook page and wrote…
The wedding will hold on March 23, 2013, in Dubai.
Annie had earlier in the year, given everyone a hint of the venue by turning all attention on their case to Dubai after she posted pictures of herself on Instagram while holidaying at a resort in the rich midde-east country.
Investigations then also revealed that family and friends would be flown on a special chartered plane to the strictly by invitation wedding and lodged in luxurious hotels in Dubai.
What no one knew then was the date.
Tuface warned right from the beginning that his dealings with Annie would be very secret. His traditional marriage almost passed un-noticed and he is trying to do the same with his white wedding.
Annie however doesn’t look to be on the same page with him on this one. She is squealing in every way she can. We trust we’ll have wedding pictures from her as well.
Big congrats to them both!

Nigeria are through to the final of the Orange Africa Cup of Nations, South Africa 2013 after cruising to a 4-1 semi final victory against Mali on Wednesday at the Moses Mabhida stadium.

First half goals from Elderson Echiejile, Brown Ideye, Emmanuel Emenike and a second half Ahmed Musagoal paved Nigeria’s passage to the finals despite Cheick Diarra‘s consolatory goal on 75 minutes.
In a match that was described as the clash of Eagles, Mali proved a threat on set pieces in the first quarter of the game but never made the most of their chances.
It was no turning back for Nigeria when they got their foot on the ball as the got the opening goal on 25minutes when Victor Moses’ inch perfect caught the Malian defence ball watching as  Echiejile Elderson headed home past Mamadou Samassa.
The goal gave Nigeria the ascendancy and they extended their lead five minutes later when Victor Mosesreleased Emmanuel Emenike on the right as the Nigeria stiker crossed into the box for Brown Ideye to beat the Malian goalkeeper.
The Super Eagles wrapped up the game before the break when an Emmanuel Emenike freekick at the edge of the Malian box was deflected into the net by Momo Sissoko for Nigeria’s third.
Head coach Stephen Keshi was forced into bringing in Ahmed Musa for Victor Moses who picked up a slight ankle injury.
That proved to be an inspired substituition as the CSKA Moscow striker got on the score sheet on the hour mark to make it four for Nigeria.
Mali did get a consolation through Cheick Fanta Mady Diarra but it will be a match to completely forget for the Eagles who were completely outclassed by the Super Eagles.
