2019: Britain Speaks, Makes Stern Warning Ahead Of 2019 Election, Inform Nigerians On The Grave Consequences Of………

The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ms Catriona Laing, has warned that Nigerian politicians who incite or execute violence during Saturday’s elections would be banned from visa issuance and assets in the UK seized.

Laing gave the warning at a press briefing on Wednesday in Abuja to unveil the Election Situation Room of the Civil Society Situation Room set up by a coalition of civil society organizations to monitor the polls in Abuja.

She reminded political parties that apart from their assets being seized in the UK, they could experience a worst case scenario of prosecution.

“We will apply this absolutely across board, not directed to any particular party; so, we are monitoring and looking out for hate speech.

“We are concerned about the Peoples Democratic Party rally which has hate speech a lot and we will like to call that kind of thing out.

“Our two worries are on security, not just on the role the Police will play to ensure peace, but about the role individuals play by getting angry or militias being paid to disrupt elections.

“Then, another worry is fake news, that is why we rely on CSOs and we will work with them to get information,’’she said

UN Secretary-General for West Africa and the Sahel, Mr. Mohamed Ibn Chambas, thanked the CSOs for the launch of the situation room, describing it as a good work toward the elections.

Ibn Chambas said that it showed that the groups were prepared for the elections and ready to monitor the voting process, thus helping UN with ideas on the process in the country.

The American Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. Stuart Symington, said that the special thing with the room was not just about what CSOs would say and do, but also about what every Nigerian would say and do.

“The time has come for the outside world that cares so much about Nigeria to listen to the people of Nigeria and to see what each of them do and then forward the results to lift Nigeria up,’’ Symington said.

Head of the EU Delegation to Nigeria, Ambassador Ketil Karlsen, said that the work of CSOs over the last years gave hope that continued consolidation of democracy clamoured for internally could happen.

Country Director of Open Society for West Africa, Mr. Jude Illoh, said that though there were a lot of apprehension about the election, Nigeria would overcome it.

Illoh said that Nigeria’s democracy had experienced good progress.

Baby born with an abnormal bulge that is pushing her BRAIN out of her skull

A Pakistani baby girl who was born with an abnormal bulge on the top of her head is desperately waiting for life-changing surgery.
Anila Ali, from Dokri in the Sindh province of Pakistan, was born with an unusually large, soft head, which doctors diagnosed as a severe form of craniosynostosis.
This is thought to be causing pressure to build inside the three-month-old’s head, which is forcing her brain to spread outside of her skull.
Medics are baffled as to how to treat the newborn, who also suffers from a severe form of spina bifida, which they claim has caused a tumour to develop on her back.
Anila’s 19-year-old mother Naushaba, said: ‘I was happy when I gave birth to Anila, my first child, three months ago in a private clinic.  But, I got afraid when I first saw her head.
‘Her head was not developed properly and doctors told us to take her to the children hospital in Larkana. Her head was so soft that doctors told us that even a small injury on her head can do her a lot of damage.’
Naushaba and her husband Amad Ali, 21, took Anila to Larkana where doctors then advised them to take her to Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Centre in Karachi.
Unable to afford to make the 270-mile (430km) journey, the couple’s friends and family gave them £800 to cover the cost of their travel and stay in Karachi.
Amad, who earns just £4 a day as a daily wage labourer, said: ‘We took a lot of loans to arrange a visit and stay in Karachi.  I wish our daughter gets the right treatment here.’

While Buhari is the special guest of honour, Obasanjo is the occasion’s chairman.

The presidents of Kenya, Guinea, Togo, Niger, Senegal, Zimbabwe, Gambia, Mali and Ivory Coast are also expected at the occasion.

Former President Dramani Mahama of Ghana; Yakubu Gowon, Ibrahim Babangida, and Abdulsalami Abubakar, former military heads of states, are among the expected guests.

Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Namadi Sambo, Jonathan’s deputy between 2011 and 2015, will also grace the occasion.

Theophilus Danjuma, former minister of defence, is the chief book presenter, while Salihu Alfa-Belgore, former chief justice of the federation, will review the book.

A sample of the invitation letter signed by Bashir Yuguda, a former minister, who is chairman of the book presentation committee, said My Transition Hours “gives some insight into the 2015 presidential election and also reflects on some key decisions by the former president while in office.”

Two match ban for AC Milan forward Higuain

Argentine striker, Gonzalo Higuain has been given a two game ban and a warning after his sending off in AC Milan’s defeat to Juventus.
The striker was booked by referee Paolo Mazzoleni late in the second half, which prompted a furious reaction.
He shouted in the official’s face, resulting in a second yellow, and had to be dragged away by teammates and former Juve teammates.
That could have resulted in a long ban, but both he and Bianconeri striker Cristiano Ronaldo made it clear he hadn’t said anything insulting to Mazzoleni.
Video replays appeared to show him screaming “you always whistle at me!”, indicating he was sent off for the severity of his reaction, rather than what he actually said.
Today the Lega Serie A has released its disciplinary report, with Higuain given a two game ban and a warning.
It was found Pipita had reacted in “an uncontrolled and threatening way” while “blatantly reiterating his protests” as he refused to leave the pitch.
That means he’ll be suspended for the Lazio and Parma games after the international break, but available thereafter.
Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic has also been given a one game ban for his two bookings against Atalanta.
Karol Linetty of Sampdoria and Tomas Rincon both picked up their fifth booking of the season and will miss Week 13.
Empoli Coach Giuseppe Iachini has been given a one match ban for a “blasphemous expression” which was picked up by the fourth official.
