Federal Gov. set to tackle rebel govs, Baraje

The crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party may take a turn for the worse while the Presidency and the Federal Capital Territory Administration intensify actions against “rebel” members of the party.
Our Source gathered on Monday that while the Presidency was set to remove such rebel members holding  board appointments, the FCTA  was determined to make sure that more  governors sympathetic to the Alhaji Abubakar Barage-led New PDP lose their landed properties in Abuja.
One of many seven governors in the New PDP, Rabiu Kwakwanso of Kano State, had a selection little bit of land allocated to him in Maitama District, Abuja, revoked by the FCTA on Saturday.
Our Source gathered that the FCTA was also set to remove what it termed “illegal structures on the land” measuring about 2,500 square metres.

Jonathan Lacks The Knowledge To Tackle Nigeria’s Problems - Fashola

Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola (SAN) has declared that President Goodluck Jonathan-led federal government lacks the requisite knowledge and capacity to tackle Nigeria’s problems, saying that there is the need to effect a change at the centre in 2015 for the country to achieve positive development.

Fashola, who stated this during an exclusive interview with a team of LEADERSHIP editors in Abuja yesterday, was giving the rationale behind the ongoing merger talks by his party, the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), and the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) towards dislodging the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the centre in 2015.

FG Skips Planned Refinery Projects - Jonathan Must Tackle Fuel Subsidy Corruption–Labour

This development came to the fore as organised labour expressed surprise at President Goodluck Jonathan’s N161bn supplementary budget on fuel subsidy for 2012.

Soldiers, police tackle protesting UNIABUJA students

5 hours 16 minutes ago // News | General | Soldiers, police tackle protesting UNIABUJA students

Detachments of soldiers and policemen on Tuesday morning battled to dislodge protesting students of the University of Abuja from some major streets of the federal capital.

The students had taken their protest to the streets after UNIABUJA authorities shut the school.

The authorities were reacting to the students’ protest, which disrupted activities in the institution on Monday.

The students moved to the streets of Abuja and remained overnight, demanding action on the non-accreditation of some courses in Engineering, Agriculture and Science faculties by the National Universities Commission.

Their street protest grounded Gwagwalada, the Abuja suburb where the school is located, as well as Airport Road, Abuja.

Many motorists and other road users were stranded on some roads in Abuja overnight.

More details later.
