Nigeria set to build first sports university

As part of efforts to fully develop the sports sector in Nigeria, the Senate says it has initiated a bill for the establishment of a Sports University in the country. Senate President, Senator Abubakar Saraki revealed this yesterday in Abuja when he played host to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Sports Writers Association (SWAN) who paid him a courtesy visit in his office.

Saraki said time has come for Nigeria to begin to do things like they are done in other countries adding that sports can only be truly developed in the country when things are addressed properly. “Sports is vital in social development of every nation and Nigeria cannot be an exception. Our main challenge is in the area of sports administration and we must begin to put in place those things that can help us to achieve our full potentials.

“Already at the senate level, we have a bill for the establishment of a Sports University in Nigeria. This is to make sure that we have the right people in this sector which is very critical for our development as a nation. At times it is frustrating the way sports is managed in Nigeria.

It is very embarrassing to here evert now and then that our athletes were stranded or that we could not register for competitions due to lack of money. “We have been working on two important bills for the repealing of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and that of the National Sports Commission (NSC) laws using every legal legislative process and as soon as possible the NFF bill will be amended.”

Ugandan Pastor tells church members to burn the Bible, says it is misleading them (Photos)

A Ugandan pastor of House of Prayer ministries, Aloysius Bugingo allegedly gathered all his church members Bibles on Easter Monday and burned them because he thinks it’s misleading them.

According to the report by Zambezi Reporters,  he says that Bibles like the King James version and the New Testament, have been tampered with and some verses omitted.

Pastor Bugingo said that the lines talking about the Fasting and Lent, in general, were erased and that the word “ Holy Ghost ” appears a whopping 99 times yet the word “Holy Spirit” appears only seven times.

He therefore, requested members of his congregation to collect all the said Bible versions and set them ablaze.

CBN to Sustain Forex Intervention, Releases Fresh $418m

The apex bank of Nigeria has moved to boost the value of the naira in the local market by pumping more forex into the economy.
The Central Bank of Nigeria on Sunday vowed to sustain its intervention in the foreign exchange market to ensure liquidity in that segment of the financial sector.
The Acting Director, Corporate Communications, CBN, Mr. Isaac Okorafor, stated this in a statement issued in Abuja.
He said as part of its determination to make forex available to genuine users, the apex bank on Friday auctioned the sum of $418m at the retail segment at the rate of N310 to a dollar.
He gave the sectors of the economy that benefitted from the intervention as aviation, agriculture, petroleum and raw materials/machineries.
The statement  read in part, “In its avowed determination to ensure ample supply of foreign exchange liquidity in the market, the Central Bank of Nigeria on Friday, 7th of April, 2017 auctioned the sum of $418m at a marginal rate of N310/$.
 
“This was in addition to the sum of $350m sold as wholesale auction during the week. In the weeks ahead, the CBN will sustain its intervention through the sale of foreign exchange to all segments of the market.”
The statement said the CBN would sell short-tenured forwards of seven-day to 30-day maturity to meet the demand of manufacturers and all other foreign exchange users.
The apex bank said the injection of foreign exchange into the market should reassure all users of its determination to continue to meet all legitimate forex demand in the market.
It added that the intervention was part of measures to achieve exchange rate stability in the financial market.
