Daily News Roundup

Nigeria's Presidency on Monday December 2, 2023 slammed former President Olusegun Obasanjo for describing the seven years of President Muhammadu Buhari in office as horrible and hell on earth for Nigerians. It described Obasanjo’s government as corrupt, adding that the former leader was morally bankrupt.

 There are indications on Monday that moves by the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, to persuade aggrieved Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governors to embrace peace have failed. This came to the fore on Monday as the aggrieved governors are scheduled to visit Ibadan on Thursday for the inauguration of their Oyo State counterpart, Seyi Makinde’s campaign.


The Nigerian Medical Association has condemned the murder of one of its members, Dr Uyi Iluobe, who was reportedly killed by relatives of his patient at a hospital in Oghara, Delta State. Iluobe was murdered on December 31, 2022. The NMA, in a statement by its President, Dr Uche Ojinmah, on Monday, urged the National Assembly to criminalise violence against healthcare workers in the country.


 A trigger-happy Nigerian Army officer, Abubakar Idris, attached to the Presidential Guard Brigade, on Monday, opened fire on some motorcyclists in Abuja, killing a passenger on the spot. It was gathered that the incident happened around 1 am close to a bridge along Aguiyi Ironsi Way, Asokoro, where Idris and his colleagues were stationed for guard duty.


. A mentally unstable woman, identified only as Lara, gave birth to a baby boy   in the Ido Local Government Area of Oyo State. The lady, whose age was said to be between 25 and 30, gave birth to the baby in an uncompleted building around 3pm on Sunday.


 The immediate past governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola, said he had a divine revelation that the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the 2023 polls, Senator Bola Tinubu, would be elected president. Oyetola also said God told him he would return as governor of Osun State, calling on members of the party to work for the victory of all candidates of the APC at the general election.


. Four policemen attached to a former governor of Imo State, Ikedi Ohakim, were killed when gunmen attacked the former governor’s convoy on Monday. It was gathered that the incident happened as the former governor was returning from Orieagu in Ehime Mbano area of the State.


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said that the endorsement of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi, by former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, speaks volumes. The governor, who made the statement at a road project’s flag-off in Emohua Local Government Area of the State, said for the ex-president to endorse Obi instead of his former vice, Atiku Abubakar, something was fundamentally wrong.


 The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has vowed to apprehend underage voters and their parents if they attempt to vote during the 2023 elections. Its National Commissioner for Information and Voter Education, Festus Okoye, stated this, yesterday, during an interview on a live television programme monitored in Lagos.


. A fresh survey conducted by Market Trends International (MTI) on all presidential candidates in the 2023 election has placed Labour Party (LP) candidate, Peter Obi, ahead of Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and Bola Tinubu of All Progressives Congress (APC).


 The Katsina State Police Command says it repelled a terrorist attack on its Magama “Nipping Point” along Jibia-Katsina road and killed one of the terrorists while others escaped with various degree of gunshot wounds.
One AK-47 rifle and four magazines containing ninety (90) rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, money and other exhibits were recovered from the assailants.


Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher has blamed two players, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Harvey Elliot for their role in the Reds’ Premier League 3-1 defeat to Brentford on Monday night.
Carragher was unhappy with Liverpool’s performance against Brentford and specifically criticized Alexander-Arnold for his defending and Elliot for his dummy attempt, branding it as ‘absolutely shambolic’.
Liverpool lost to Brentford after an own goal from Ibrahima Konate and a goal each from Yoane Wissa and Bryan Mbeumo.


Manchester United boss, Erik ten Hag has hailed his defender Luke Shaw, describing the Englishman’s recent performances as ‘fantastic’.

The Dutchman recently moved Shaw from his usually left-back position to become an emergency centre-back.

Lisandro Martinez has not returned from his World Cup break after helping Argentina clinch the trophy in Qatar and Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof have not been at their best.
The manager had to bring in Shaw to play alongside Raphael Varane in the heart of the defence and the left-back has performed exceptionally in his new role against Nottingham Forest and Wolves.

And Ten Hag says Shaw’s ‘fabulous’ performances at centre-back have proved he’s now an ‘option’ there for the future.

“We have seen the last two games. I think he did fabulous and was impressive, but we also know he is really good as a left full-back but it’s an extra option and [that] is always good for a team,” Ten Hag told the press ahead of Manchester United’s clash with Bournemouth.

Manchenter United are sitting in fourth place in the Premier League table ahead of their next game against Bournemouth.

  1. I wonder why the Presidency is not happy with OBJ's comment that PMB's regime was horrible and hell on earth for Nigerians. This govt has done more harm than good to Nigerians. Thank God their reign is almost coming to an end.
    May God give us a well deserved leader come next month.

  2. I always look forward to this great post. It's like using one stone 🪨 to kill ten birds.
