Prince Charles has attacked British schools for failing to install ‘character’ in pupils and making them virtually unemployable.
The Prince said the education system is leaving children bereft of vital life skills and unable to develop the confidence needed to develop into successful adults. While conceding the importance of academic education, Charles stressed pupils need to be taught to cope with the world that awaits them if they were to have a chance of getting a job.
The Nigerian Catholic Church says it has ‘temporarily’ withdrawn its membership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in order to promote Christian unity and peaceful coexistence amongst Christians and non-Christians alike.

Cornelius Omonokhua, said the action taken by the Catholic Church will be reviewed after the annual meeting of the Conference of Bishops in February.

By Saharareporters, New York
More facts emerged in court today as to howsubsidy fraud suspects succeed in receiving subsidy claims with forged documents, as official witnesses of the Petroleum Product Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) told a Lagos High Court that their relationship with oil marketers is based on “trust.”
Victor Zamani and Tope Ogundola of the PPPRA, who testified before Justice Okunnu at the trial of Rowaye Jubril, the Executive Director of Brila Energy Limited at the High Court in Ikeja, disclosed this while explaining the agency’s process of qualifying fuel marketers for claims from the government’s petroleum support fund.
Nigeria battles to stop spread of al Qaeda chaos in Africa
By Samuel Burke, CNN
In her testimony to Congress on Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton cited jihadist group Boko Haram as part of the broader Islamic militant threat in Africa.
Clinton said that the West-African group, whose name means “Western education is sinful” is a major threat to Nigeria – Africa’s largest oil exporter.
In an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Wednesday, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan agreed that Boko Haram could pose an existential threat to his country.
The painting is called “Truth” – and shows the president with his arms outstretched. A crown of thorns rests on his head.
It is worrisome that the anti-graft body has failed to make public its findings over a year now after confirming that
investigation was ongoing, with the promise that many more arrests were likely to be made then. It smacks of a cover-up that
nothing has been heard since the EFCC extended invitations to three serving commissioners in Lagos State, namely Rotimi
Agunsoye of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs; Rotimi Oyekan of Finance and Jide Idris of Health. Also invited by the
EFCC in connection with the corruption allegations filed by the True Face of Lagos is the Special Assistant to Fashola on Works and Infrastructure, Ganiu Johnson. Read the rest of this entry
14. Several other buyers of Federal Government properties and developers of properties in Ikoyi, Victoria Island and
Government Reservation Area Ikeja were forced to succumb to the outrageous demands of Tinubu, Fashola, Commissioner
Abosede and other officials of the Lagos State Physical Planning Ministry and were made to pay ridiculous amounts to private
accounts before their redevelopments were approved. Those who refused or were unable to pay could not develop their
properties. This is a major economic strangulation of property developers and has contributed largely to the skyrocketing rent in Ikoyi, VI and Lekki axis.
15. Tinubu converted all the plots of land where Lagos Polytechnic was located at Ikosi near the old toll gate. He chased away
the Polytechnic in 2006 and went ahead to locate the choice plots to himself, his cronies and political associates. The
headquarters of Television Continental (TVC), which is owned by him, is located there. He deprived the youths of Lagos of decent education because of his greed.
SAN FRANCISCO, November 27, (THEWILL) – A contractor (name withheld) needed to collect his payment for a contract he
executed for the Lagos State Government. Having met a brick wall everywhere he went in the pursuit of his payment, his boon
came up with a quick-fix. “Let’s go and see the ‘Lion of Bourdillon,’” he suggested to his contractor-friend.
The contractor and his friend eventually managed to arrange a meeting with the ‘Lion’ at his Bourdillon Road, Ikoyi residence in
the wee hours of the day. And as the ‘Lion’ listened to the contractor as he narrated his story, it was apparent that he was
tired as all he could do in response was to yawn as he dragged himself from his chair.
“Lagos is tired,” the ‘Lion’ muttered, walking towards his bedroom, adding, “Eko wants to rest,” without minding his guests.
The bewildered contractor and his friend were confused as to what to do next as the ‘Lion’ banged the door behind them and
went off to sleep. Some aides of the ‘Lion’ however advised the early-morning visitors to come back later that day and preferably at midnight.

He (Oluwaseyi) was therefore not called to Bar yesterday.
It wouldn’t be the end of the world if our favourite football team went out of business or the wrong nobody won The X Factor.
But if nothing is done to stop the pointless, pitiless carnage raining down on Gaza…
Well, does it really need to be spelled out?
Sadly, it seems it does. So, with a heavy heart, here goes.
The Nigerian intelligence community appears unravelled by the latest maneuverings of the Boko Haram. Sources close to the Nigerian intelligence community reveal there are strong indications that agents of Boko Haram recently dispatched snipers to the North East region of Nigeria – with a changed focus towards targeted killings and/or assassinations of persons considered prized targets.
Na wao, been a man of God this days is not easy, you have to compete with the likes of Dangot, Femi Otedola to own private jets, compete with the game to rock gold piece and so on. This is the president of CAN pastor Ayo Oritsejafor rocking a rather expensive “Jeseus Piece” golden chain, is this really necessary? or just vanity? my people let us talk! because I am starting to consider a career change.. lol
‘Did I just do the Not Impressed face with the President..?” McKayla tweeted after the meeting.
Wife of the Nigerian President, Dame Patience Jonathan
Despite her return to Nigeria in pomp and circumstance about one month ago, First Lady Patience Jonathan is still sick, SaharaReporters sources say.
Saharareporters learned that shortly after the public relations exercise that attended her return, she retired into a medically-induced bed rest that has her kept her away from the public, unable to attend to official duties.
A member of the Islamic terror group, boko haram residing in Maiduguri that was arrested by the JTF yesterday disclosed that the terror sect have a helicopter.
The sect member claimed the helicopter was brought from Libya after Khadafi was killed and much of his weapons went to Al-Qaida, and he said more was coming from Somalia and Mali.
This is the second time the group is claiming to be having a heavy weapon, it occurred in 2009, when the group claim it’s having a tank which it collected from the Nigerian army.
The main problem is that the helicopter is the same colour with the Nigerian army’s helicopter. The arrested boko haram member claimed the helicopter may soon be used in an operation.
Do you know that Warren Buffet owns the largest private jet manufacturing firm in the US? Yet he has never flown in one because he says “everyone who says they need a private jet to make important appointments are liars”. “They need it for their ego. Name me one of them busier than I am who owns more US corporations than I do”.
“I travel constantly across the US and the world in commercial jetliners, live in the same house since the 70s, still buy $9 ties and $75 suits and still drive my 22 year old immaculately maintained Lincoln”. Buffet is one of the richest men in the largest
economy on earth! All you thieving Govs & politricians, pls note.
16 Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a Pastor called Bakare who believed himself to be a truth sayer. He earned a great of respect.
17 He followed Oyedepo and Oyakhilome, shouting, “These men are not servants of the Most High God, They have private Jets at the expense of their poor congregation.”
18 He kept this up for many days. Finally Oyedepo became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the man, “If it’s your own private jet you want, why not just ask!” At that moment Pastor Bakare was disgusted.
