Sports / PELE: Career Captured In Numbers (pictures) by domesifa(m): 10:53pm On Dec 29, 2022
Brazilian football legend Pelé, who burst onto the world scene as a goal-scoring teenager and led his national team to an unprecedented three World Cup titles, died Thursday at the age of 82.

He was hospitalized in late November, and doctors said in December he was dealing with cancer that had advanced along with kidney and cardiac problems. In September 2021, he had surgery to remove a tumor from his colon.

Widely considered one of the greatest football players of all time, Pelé dazzled on the World Cup stage for Brazil and in club games and international tours with his team Santos before helping generate a surge of excitement around the sport in the United States with a late-career stint with the New York Cosmos.

Born Edson Arantes do Nascimento in 1940 in Três Corações, about 250 kilometers northwest of Rio de Janeiro, Pelé signed with Santos at the age of 15.

By 16, he was part of Brazil’s national team, and in 1958 he made his World Cup debut at age 17, announcing himself on football’s biggest stage with a goal in his first match. He is the youngest player to ever score in the men’s World Cup and the youngest to ever score three goals in one game, which he accomplished in Brazil’s second match of the tournament.

Education / BREAKING: JAMB Announces 140 as Cut-off Point For 2022 University Admissions by domesifa(m): 1:10pm On Jul 21, 2022
The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and relevant stakeholders have agreed on the minimum cut-off point for admission into tertiary institutions in Nigeria.

It was unanimously agreed at the 2022 Policy meeting that 140 will be the minimum cut-off point for admission into a university. 100 was voted for Polytechnics and Monotechnics, while 80 was voted for Colleges of Education.

The cut-off point was the collective decision of all heads of tertiary institutions, private and public, taken at the 2022 Policy meeting chaired by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, in Abuja.

JAMB Registrar Prof Ishaq Oloyede explained that the aforementioned points are the minimum, but that does not mean that institutions must comply wholely to it.

“Institutions have the liberty to determine their cut-off point but must not be below the cut-off agreed at the policy meeting,” he explained.

Vice Chancellor, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Prof Charles Esimone, was among the people that adopted the motion at the meeting.

TEARS OF JOY � The wait is finally over!!! My Thesis is finally 100% done!!! �� Not sure why weeping is my reaction right now.

I’m so drained that it actually feels so difficult to celebrate. � Over the last few weeks, I’ve pushed myself SO much, both mentally and physically to actually finish this degree. Truthfully, this has been one of the most challenging experiences of my life… This paper alone has made me want to drop out of Oxford University TWICE.

I've done something only a few can do, and I don’t need to ask for anyone’s respect or flowers - I’ve earned them! � People keep asking where the party is?! LMAO I need to rest and rebuild… It is important to understand that when you have worked as hard as I have for a project like this, you get so fatigued and partying is the last thing on your mind.

I am thankful for all the people who have supported me and proud of myself throughout this process. Lastly, I am thankful to God who has been with me the entire way!!! ��

I join President Muhammadu Buhari to condemn in strongest terms, the atrocious killing of worshippers Sunday at the St Francis Catholic Church, Owa-luwa Street, Owo Kingdom, in Ondo State.

This saddens inexplicably, and I mourn the dead from this very unfortunate event. Also, my thoughts and my prayers goes to the victims and their families, the Catholic Church, and the government of Ondo state.

We will not cower to the whims of elements who lurk in darkness to unleash inconceivable wickedness on our citizens. We will keep standing against evil and Nigeria will win.

As the President as charged, emergency agencies are to swing into action to bring succor to the wounded.

We stand in utter solidarity with the people of Owo and Ondo state in this terrible moment.

Crime / EFCC Should Release Advert Executive Immediately, Lawyer Orders by domesifa(m): 9:49pm On May 22, 2022

My attention has been drawn to a statement by the EFCC on their verified social media accounts where it is reported that the Commission arrested a certain outdoor advertisement Executive in Enugu State for hosting two billboards with the inscription “2023: ENUGU PDP LEARN FROM 2007 ELECTION. EFCC IS COMING WITH KOBOKO ON CORRUPT CANDIDATES.”

In the statement, the Commission claims that the advertisement executive was arrested because of the two billboards bore the name and logo of the Commission. The Commission also claims that the billboards “bore offensive messages”, and that it was used to “threaten the aspiration of some politicians in the state in the build up to the 2023 general elections.”

The reasons given by the EFCC for their action in this case are baseless, false and legally unfounded. The use of the logo or name of the EFCC is in itself not a criminal offence. There is no Section of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (Establishment) Act, 2004 that makes the mere use of the name or logo of the EFCC, without more, a criminal offence.

Section 6 (q) of the EFCC Act provides for the functions of the Commission which includes: “carrying out and sustaining rigorous public and enlightenment campaign against economic and financial crimes within and outside Nigeria.”

By Section 24 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended), citizens have a constitutional duty to assist law enforcement agencies in the discharge of their functions.

Thus, the Commission should encourage, and not penalize or persecute citizens, who engage in rigorous public enlightenment campaign against economic and financial crimes. There is no doubt that the message in the billboards are geared towards discouraging economic and financial crimes. In essence, the Concerned Enugu Citizens in Scotland who sponsored the adverts are only discharging their constitutional duty. The message in the billboards is patriotic and timely.

What offence has the advertisement executive committed to warrant his arrest by the EFCC?

Those are saying that the advert amounts to impersonation of the EFCC are wrong. Those who hold this erroneous view should be properly guided on the elements of the offence of impersonation. For the offence of impersonation to be constituted in law, there has to be a criminal intent (mens rea).

Section 484 of the Criminal Code Act specifically defines impersonation in general as follows: “Any person who, with intent to defraud any person, falsely represent himself to be some other person, living or dead, is guilty of a felony and is liable to imprisonment for three years.”

In the billboards, it is clearly written that the advert is sponsored (powered) by “Concerned Enugu Citizens in Scotland.” It is therefore illegal, mischievous and ridiculous for the EFCC to arrest the advertisement executive despite the apparent fact that the advert is not credited to the EFCC or any officer of the Commission. There was no intent whatsoever to defraud any person. There is nothing in the billboards that warrants the obnoxious arrest of the advert executive or anyone for that matter.

The abbreviation “EFCC” is not a registered trademark of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Even if it were a registered trademark, the unauthorized use of same should be seen as a trademark infringement which is a civil wrong and not a criminal offence. Any citizen can legally use the abbreviation or acronym “EFCC” for legal and legitimate purpose.

Similarly, the use of the EFCC’s logo is not a criminal offence, except where it is used with a criminal intent.

Let the Commission refer Nigerians to any Section of the EFCC (Establishment) Act, 2004 that criminalizes the use of the logo or name of the Commission for public enlightenment purpose by citizens. If such prohibition existed, movie producers for example who constantly use the name and logo of the EFCC for enlightenment or for artistic and entertainment purposes would be liable to prosecution.

In law, it takes more than a physical act (actus reus) for a crime to be committed. There must be mens rea (criminal mind or criminal intent). These two elements must coexist. This is in accordance with Section 36 (12) of the 1999 Constitution which states that no person shall be punished except the offence and the punishment for same are expressly defined in a written law.

“Offensive EFCC Campaign Adverts” as alluded to by the EFCC is not an offence known to law in Nigeria.

The message in the advert is positive; it promotes the “war” against corruption that the EFCC is supposed to be waging. It is rather ironic that the same EFCC that claims to be investigating politicians regarding the source of the humongous sums they are using to buy nomination forms is now antagonizing patriotic citizens who are warning corrupt politicians to be mindful of the same EFCC.

The claim by the Commission that the billboards were used to threaten the aspirations of “some politicians in the state” is false and misleading. The message in the billboards was specifically targeted at corrupt candidates and politicians. There is no where in the billboards where the name of any particular candidate or politician was mentioned.

It is therefore astonishing, that a Commission that is statutorily mandated to fight corruption, is now holding brief for corrupt politicians in Enugu State. No matter how we look at it, this action by the EFCC is a setback on the war against corruption and should be roundly condemned.

I call on the Commission to immediately release the advertisement executive, publicly apologize to him, and pay him adequate compensation for the malicious damage to his billboards. The Commission should arrest the corrupt politicians in Enugu State and the rest of the country who are using stolen public funds to promote their insatiable political campaigns and ambitions.

This is a needless persecution and distraction. If the Barwa-led EFCC is in now officially supporting corrupt candidates and politicians, the Commission should say so without equivocation. The advert is commendable, and the Concerned Enugu Citizens who sponsored it should be commended by the EFCC and the public.

A.C. Milan clinched their first Italian Serie A title in 11 years, after earning a 3-0 final-day victory at Sassuolo on Sunday, with a double from Olivier Giroud and one goal from Franck Kessie, sealing the Scudetto in style.

Stefano Pioli's side came into the final round of fixtures knowing a point would be enough for them to finish on top, ahead of rivals Inter Milan, but after Giroud scored in the 17th minute, a 19th Serie A title never looked in doubt.

Frenchman Giroud scored a second goal in the 32nd minute to put Pioli's men on course for the trophy, without needing to be concerned with how Inter were doing on the back field at the San Siro stadium.

Politics / Breaking: Court Rejects Nnamdi Kanu’s Application For Bail by domesifa(m): 11:32am On May 18, 2022
The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Wednesday, declined to grant bail to the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, pending the determination of the treasonable felony charge the Federal Government preferred against him.

Trial Justice Binta Nyako held that Kanu must explain the reason why he breached the previous bail that was given to him, before he could enjoy another favourable discretion from the court.

“Until the issue of absence of the defendant for his trial, with all the bail conditions breached, is determined, the instant application of the defendant for bail will at best be premature and it is refused.

“However, the defendant is at liberty to refile the application”, Justice Nyako held.

The court noted that Kanu’s trial had since 2015, suffered various setbacks owing to over 19 interlocutory applications that have been filed in the matter.

It, therefore, implored the parties to allow the case to proceed on trial to enable the charge to be determined, one way or the other.

Kanu had in the application he filed pursuant to sections 6(6) and 36(5) and (6) of the 1999 Constitution, as amended, as well as sections 161, 162, 163 and 165 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, ACJA, 2015, prayed the court to release him on bail, pending by determination of the charge against him.

He equally prayed the court to order the Department of State Services, DSS, to produce the medical report of the defendant who is currently in its custody.

Kanu, told the court that he was severely tortured for eight days in Kenya, before he was repatriated back to Nigeria for continuation of his trial.

He alleged that his health condition deteriorated, following “a highly poisonous substance” he said was injected into his system, which he said is causing him to have constipation and increased heart beat.

Insisting that the DSS lacks the necessary medical facility to cater for his health needs, Kanu, told the court that he was confined to solitary confinement where he alleged that he was daily exposed to mental torture.

The IPOB leader told the court that he has “credible and reliable sureties”, pledging that he would not commit any offence while on bail.

Besides, Kanu, argued that he has not been tried or convicted by any court of law in the country, contending that he was entitled to bail.

He further drew attention of the court to the fact that he was previously released on bail on health ground.

However, FG, urged the court to refuse the bail application, insisting that Kanu, having realized the gravity of the case against him, would run away from the country and not make himself available for trial.


Religion / Deborah Samuel: CAN Calls For Nationwide Protest by domesifa(m): 11:13pm On May 14, 2022
The Christian Association of Nigeria, has called for a nationwide protest over the gruesome killing of Deborah Samuel, a 200 level student of Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto.

The CAN President, Rev. Olasupo Ayokunle, in a letter addressed to all bloc leaders, urged Christians to hold peaceful protests within their church premises on Sunday May 22, 2022.

He made the call against the backdrop of the Thursday killing and setting ablaze of the female student by an angry mob that accused her of blasphemy.

The letter dated May 14, 2022 and signed by CAN’s General Secretary, Joseph Daramola, reads: “I have been directed by the CAN President, His Eminence, Rev. Dr. Samson Olasupo A. Ayokunle, to request all Church Leaders, through your various Churches to organize a PEACEFUL PROTEST in honour of one of our daughters, DEBORAH YAKUBU who was gruesomely murdered on Thursday, 12 May, 2022 at the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto in Sokoto State by some Islamic extremists.

The protest will take place on 22 May, 2022 in the afternoon by 3:00 Pm in every Secretariat of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) nationwide and not on the streets in order to avoid further loss of lives. Those without CAN’s Secretariat may use any church with big premises.


“We urge those who could afford it to make use of the traditional media and the social media and others can use only the social media to give it a wide coverage in other to sensitize the whole world. We also call on Nigerian Christians in diaspora to join us using our embassies all over the world.

“The occasion can also be used to pray for Deborah’s family and friends, peace for the country, victory for the Church and godly political leaders in the coming general election.”
