Education / Ungrateful Prince: New Children’s Book Hits Market by Irukkanews: 12:40pm On Mar 30
A new book titled The Ungrateful Prince and written by three siblings, Michael, Chidinma and Chiamaka Anosike, students of Laureatefield Schools, Montessori, Nursery, Primary and College, Olusesi Street, Onireke ,Off Ojo Military Barracks, Ojo Lagos, is now selling fast in the market.

The book teaches the negative effect of ungratefulness and the positive power of always practicing gratitude.

Speaking further on the book, Michael Anosike, the eldest of the siblings said that even though times are
hard, people should always try to be positive. Anosike, who is 12 years and in Junior Secondary School three (JSS3), said that being positive or practicing gratitude is one of the keys to success in life.

According to him, in the school, they were taught five magic words which are supposed to help people
to always remain positive.

However, he said that a lot of people are not putting the words into practice, the more reason why anger, bitterness and hatred are now ruling the world.

The child author appealed to parents and teachers to as much as possible try to raise their children with love and care.

His words,“ even as children we know that things are difficult, but it should not make people to lose their soul.

Parents and teachers should try as much as possible to be raising their children with love and care. They must not be transferring the frustrations in the world to the children. If children are raised well, the future would be much better than it is now.”

Business / Alaba Traders Lament High Level Of Extortion By Ojo Council Workers by Irukkanews: 3:47pm On Feb 10
Traders at Alaba International Market, Ojo Lagos State have appealed to the governor of Lagos State,
Babajide Sanwo-Olu to come to their aid over the menace of Ojo local government workers.

According to them, all that the workers in the council are doing is extorting traders and customers going
in and out of the market under different disguises.

They said that the attitude of the council workers is negatively affecting business transactions in the

The traders said that truck drivers pay an upward of N50.000 to different sets of council workers from
Volkswagen Bus stop to Alaba international market.

According to them, even customers who come to the market to buy electronics equipment are also
extorted on their way out of the market, adding that such has been making them to be losing valuable
customers as a lot of them no longer come back.

A dealer in the market, Chinedu Okonkwo said that doing business in Alaba is increasingly becoming
frustrating because of the activities of the council workers.

According to him, customers are no longer coming to the market because of the way they are being
harassed by the workers in the local government area.

He said that the council workers have constituted different taskforces to be extorting traders and

According to him,one of the taskforces is one that is allegedly collecting revenue for Oba of Ojo.

His words,“To bring containers to Alaba market now, you have to pay through your nose because of the
council workers who lined themselves along the road that is coming into the market. Once they see any
container coming into Alaba, they will block the only road until the driver give them money.

They don’t even mind that they are obstructing free flow of traffic. That is the main reason why traffic does not move freely along Alaba road. I am calling on Governor Sanwo-Olu to come to our aid.

Politics / Buhari Missing In This List Of Popular World Leaders by Irukkanews: 3:52pm On Jan 21
President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria is missing in the list of popular world leaders'

However, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was voted as the "most popular" among the world leaders, according to a survey conducted by Morning Consult.

Narendra Modi topped the list of 'most popular' world leaders with 71 per cent approval rating.

According to the global approval rating released by Morning Consult Political Intelligence, PM Modi has beaten notable political personalities like US President Joe Biden, UK PM Boris Johnson and many more. Recall that Modi topped the list of the "most popular" world leaders in November 2021 with a score of 70% 'approval rating'.

"The latest approval rating is based on data collected from January 13 to 19, 2022. Approval ratings are based on a seven-day moving average or adult residents in each country, with sample sizes varying" by the demographic," Morning Consult Political Intelligence mentioned on its website while explaining the process of voting the most popular political leader. It is pertinent to mention that this is not the first time PM Modi was voted the most popular leader. In May 2020, he topped the list with 84% popularity.

However, in May 2021, the approval rating dipped to 63%. Although, in September 2021, PM Modi was again ranked the most approved global leader.

Biden secures 6th position

Among other prominent global leaders, Mexico President López Obrador was at second position with a 66% approval rating and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi has a 60% approval rating. His rating went up by 2% since November 2021. While President Biden secured 43% votes, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, French President Emmanuel Macron and UK PM Johnson were voted as the least popular leaders with 37%, 34% and 26% ratings, respectively. Check the list here.

The ratings as of January 2022, stated that 71% of the average Indian (literate) population approved PM Modi, while only 21% disapproved of him. Nevertheless, when it came to US President Joe Biden, nearly 49% of the US population disliked him. In addition, at least 56% of the American citizens also believed that Biden has not outdone ex-US Presidents in areas of job performance.

The report comes as the US President has completed one-year in office. However, he received slightly better grades than his predecessor, Donald Trump, at the same point four years ago.

Politics / ABIA 2023: Okezie Ikpeazu Should Stick To Abia Charter Of Equity - Ichie Okpara by Irukkanews: 1:58pm On Jan 21
The Director General of Ihe Abia, a socio-political organisation committed to good governance and accountability in Abia State and Nigeria, Ichie Emeka Okpara has called on the state governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu and other stakeholders in Abia State to ensure that power transits peacefully to Abia North senatorial zone come 2023.

Speaking to newsmen at his country home in Isuochi, Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia State, Okpara said it was enshrined in the the Abia Charter of Equity which has been in existence and operation since 1999 that each of the three senatorial zones would take 8 years in office as governor and pass on the baton to the next zone.

He maintained that it was the turn of Abia North to produce the next governor of the state in line with the principles of equity, justice and fairness since the other two zones have also taken their turns to govern Abia State.

"The Abia Charter of Equity which is anchored on the principles of justice, equity and fairness was bequeathed to us by our founding fathers in 1999 and it has enabled us to live peacefully as brothers in the past 23 years without any zone feeling marginalized by another. The Charter gives every zone a sense of belonging because political offices are shared harmoniously", he said.

He pointed out that it was necessary for the zoning arrangement to continue from where it started in 1999 to forestall the breakdown of law and order in Abia State as every zone has had a shot at the highest office in the State.

He called on those seeking to retain power to consider the wider implications of their selfish ambition and save Abia State from politics of rancour and acrimony which is bound to creep into the State if Abia North is denied its rightful chance to produce the next governor.

"Those from Abia South Senatorial zone that insist on retaining power should examine their demands and be mindful of the dangers it portend for the peace loving people of Abia. The rotation of power has been very peaceful and any attempt to deny the due beneficiaries of this charter would spell doom for Abia now and in the future. This new division of Old Aba and Old Bende zones are not only archaic but alien to us. The constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria delineates each state into three Senatorial zones. Apart from that, any other delineation is alien to us and unacceptable" Okpara said.

He called on governor Okezie Ikpeazu to work with other stakeholders to ensure that power transits to Abia North in fulfillment of the promise he made in 2019 while campaigning for his second term of office.

"The governor made a promise to Ndi Abia during his second term bid that the torch of equity would remain alight in his time in Abia by ensuring that power goes back to Abia North in 2023, being where it started in 1999. This is the time to rally other stakeholders and redeem the promise he made. Being the last beneficiary, it is incumbent on him to pass the torch of equity to Abia North in fulfillment of his promise and in furtherance of peace and stability in Abia State.

The peace we enjoy on Abia State is a product of love and understanding. It is based on the principle of equity. We are brothers and the best we can do to maintain this peace is not to disrupt the process and allow it to run smoothly" he said.

The Abia Charter of Equity was conceived by the elders of the State in 1999 so that the three zones that make up the state would each have a taste of executive power after every eight years. In 1999 Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu from Abia North became governor and the torch moved to Chief T. A. Orji from Abia Central in 2007.

The present governor Dr. Okezie Victor Ikpeazu from Abia South is the last to complete the circle having taken over from the Central Senatorial zone in 2015 and was re-elected in 2019 to complete his second term which ends in 2023.

According to Okpara, Ihe Abia as an organization stands for peace and justice for all men irrespective of where they come from.

"If it was the turn of Abia South or Central to produce the next governor, Ihe Abia would have strongly supported that aspiration as well". He extolled the foresight of Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu in allowing the power move from the North to the Central and now in the South Senatorial zone.

"If Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu did not insist on implementing the Abia charter of equity in 2007, it is very possible that power would still have remained in Abia North till now. Such a development would have been counter-productive as other zones would have felt marginalized in their own state. I enjoin governor Ikpeazu to be as gentlemanly as is predecessors by ensuring that power moves back to Abia North in 2023".

Presently, there are subtle moves by people from Abia South where the governor comes from to retain the governorship seat even as some elements from Abia Central are also angling to take over from the incumbent.

Business / High Court Reinstates Igboanuzue Led ASPMDA Caretaker Committe by Irukkanews: 1:26pm On Nov 16, 2021

Federal High Court in Lagos Judicial Division has reinstated the Sir Sunday Igboanuzue led Auto Spare Parts and Machinery Dealers Association (ASPMDA), Caretaker Committee.

The Lagos State Governor, Babjide Sanwo-Olu had given the Igboanuzue committee between 60 to 90 days to conduct election into the executives of the market.

However, before the expiration of the date, another caretaker committee, which was led by one Anthony Ohagwu was imposed on the traders.

The imposition of the new caretaker committee made the general election which the Sunday Igboanuzue committee was planning to suffer a setback.

Recall that an order pending at the Federal High Court of July22,2021 in Suit No: FHC/L/CS/566/2021 between Ikechukwu Ogbo & Ors V. ASPMDA per Honourable Justice P.O. Lifu, which inter alia mandated all parties and the association to maintain status quo with regard to the removal from office of the Chief Sunday Igboanuzue led interim committee and conduct of the association’s election pending when the matters submitted before the court will be fully determined.

However, the traders said that to their shock and surprise, the Lagos State Attorney General wrote a letter dated 18 th October,2021, purportedly directing one Anthony Ohagwu and two others to take over the leadership of the peaceful association, when there was no letter written to the current leadership of the association, directing them to handover the leadership and despite the pending order of court.

According to them, the knowledge of the letter from the Attorney General came to them through the appointed individuals, adding that it came at the time the entire members were making move to assuage and reconcile the aggrieved parties who legitimately sought the order of competent court of law in order to pave way for the conduct of general election as directed by the Lagos State governor.

In the ruling on Thursday, November 11,2021,the Federal High Court had ordered thus:

"This Honourable Court made on the 22th of July,2021,hereby reiterated that all parties who have appeared through their respective counsel in the court today are hereby directed to maintain the status quo and advice their respective clients to keep the peace pending the hearing and determination of all pending motions and applications in the suit.”

The matter was adjourned to January 19 th 2022.

The traders hailed the court ruling and described the action of the Lagos State Attorney General as willful disrespect to the pending order of Federal High Court in Suit No:FHC/L/CS/566/2021 and an attempt to cause mayhem in the market.

Politics / Anambra Guber: Primate Ayodele Fired Blank by Irukkanews: 3:59pm On Nov 08, 2021
The Leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, got it all wrong in his prophecy on the November 6,Anambra State Governorship Election.

In a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, the prophet who wants people to believe that he is the Elijah of our time had said thus, ‘

’The government should make security available during the Anambra governorship election, they have not looked at the aspect of security. There will be kidnapping, hijacking, killings and all sorts of misconduct in the election. The aspirants too are not looking at the safety of their people’s lives, they are only conscious of their vote, if they begin to kill them, how will they vote?’’

However, evidence on ground showed that Primate Ayodele was wrong in his prophecy of Armageddon as the election was free of killing, kidnapping and the other vices.

Based on his prophecy of doom, a lot of people had to relocate from Anambra to other states. Primate Ayodele had also prophesied that Anambra people no longer want the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), that has been in control of the state for the past 16 years.

According to him, nobody in Anambra state is ready for APGA and APC.

His words,‘’People are tired of APGA, they don’t want APGA but the party wants to enforce power through rigging, they are not getting it right. Governor Willie Obiano isn’t doing his homework properly and it will affect their victory. Nobody is ready for APGA and APC in Anambra but both of them are bent on taking it by force. Except Governor Willie Obiano begs the people of Anambra and prays to God, the people will not vote for APGA.”

But contrary to the prophecy,Anambra people voted massively for the All Progressives Grand Alliance.

Out of the 21 local government areas that have been declared,Prof.Chukwuma Soludo of APGA won 18,Valentine Ozigbo of the PDP won one while Ifeanyi Uba of the YPP won one.
Commenting on the prophecy, Ngozi Emedoluibe said that it was not God that was talking to Ayodele, rather the prophet was saying what he felt would happen during the election.

According to him, what all the prophets in Nigeria are doing is mere guess work.
He said that God has used Anambra State governorship election to expose Primate Ayodele as a fake prophet.

Events / Ashdown Bass Combo, An Ideal Choice For The Working Guitar Player by Irukkanews: 3:30pm On Oct 30, 2021
An ideal choice for the working guitar player – easy to transport and fit on the smallest of stages. Ashdown bass combos are designed and aimed at serious amateurs and pro users.

Ashdown amp heads have the tone and power to get your point over on any stage. And for a product that’s handmade in Ashdown’s UK custom shop, we think it’s very good value for your money. Why not magnify your tone and hear the difference with Ashdown’s wide range of amp heads and bass combos.

Ashdown Music is well known all over the world as an industry standard in bass amplification, with a huge user-list that reads like a who’s who of the world’s greatest bass players. It’s such a strong reputation that Ashdown’s equally impressive guitar products sometimes tend to be a little unfairly overshadowed. Ashdown’s unwavering focus on design and innovation is plain to see in a product collection that encompasses tube and hybrid amps and combos, practice amps, FX pedals, and the groundbreaking B-Social – combining wireless connectivity of instruments and mobile devices to create the perfect amplification and recording hub for a bass player’s home.

Launched back in 2020, Ashdown’s Guitar Magnifier heads and combos take their inspiration from the best-selling Bass Magnifier range. Designed by amp guru Dave Green and made in the UK at Ashdown’s Essex Custom Shop, the bass combo and amp heads collection promises great tone and real-world versatility at affordable prices.

An ideal choice for the working guitar player – easy to transport and fit on the smallest of stages that work well across a wide range of genres. Used unboosted, you can go from spanky funk and reggae cleans to chiming AC-inspired jangle and a slightly gnarlier pushed crunch, which sounds great for blues and country.

There’s no favouritism for guitars; humbuckers and single coils both sound great thanks to a smooth, predictable passive EQ. With a little practice, it’s easy to dial in any instrument; there are no annoying midrange peaks or treble fizz. Flipping the Boost switch adds a significant chunk of filth, going from crunch up to screaming leads with both gain controls maxed out.

Engaging Boost mode keeps both gain knobs active as the signal cascades from one stage into the next, generating subtle shifts in colour and dynamic response as the controls are tweaked relative to each other. Meanwhile, the Clip switch alters the gain structure for more versatility, tightening up the low-end and adding upper-mid harmonics.

Sports / Manchester United Accepts Pogba To Leave The Club On Free Transfer by Irukkanews: 3:03pm On Oct 28, 2021
Manchester United have reportedly accepted that Paul Pogba will leave the club on a free transfer at the end of the season.

The France World Cup winner has entered the final year of his contract and has so far failed to agree a new deal with United.

Real Madrid, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have all expressed an interest in signing Pogba.

According to ESPN, United’s hierarchy have felt for several months that Pogba would not sign a new contract and are now resigned to losing him on a free transfer next summer.

The report claims that United will not be looking to secure a transfer fee for Pogba by selling him in the January window, and are planning to keep the 28-year-old for the remainder of the season.

United are also said to be already making plans for Pogba’s departure and will strengthen their midfield options next summer.

When asked about Pogba’s future this week, the midfielder’s agent Mino Raiola said: ‘You would have to ask Manchester United about it.

The France international started on the bench for United’s 5-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday October 24, and was sent off in the 60th minute after he came in at half time.

The effort by the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu to run an egalitarian government is being sabotaged by the officers of the enforcement department of the Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA), who are always going about on illegal duties and in the process harassing, intimidating and extorting money from law abiding business owners.

Today, July 19 2021, their illegal operation took them to Murtala Muhammed International Airport Road and on sighting where a banner that was affected by the rain that fell on Friday,July 16,2021 was been put back, at 36, Murtala Muhammed International Airport road, they shamelessly lied that what was going on was reconstruction which according to them is contrary to the Lagos State Urban and Regional Planning and Development Law 2010 Contravention Notice and as such they should be ‘settled’ or they would lock up the business premises.

When the workers at the premise refused to comply with their demand, insisting that no renovation was going on, the LASBCA official wrote Stop-Work on the fence of the company and served them a paper with “Illegal Renovation of an existing bungalow without any guidance of Lagos State Renovation permit" written on it.

The paper was signed by Ibitoye Babatunde on behalf of the General Manager.

In an interaction with news men, the Human Resources Manager of the company, Ebere Ditto, he said that the LASBCA officers have become like a canker worm to the business owners along Murtala Muhammed International Airport Road.

According to him, every time, they always come to harass, intimidate and extort money from them
under different pretenses. He said that the LASBCA officers were looking for money for sallah and that was why they came on the illegal duty but that the company is no longer ready to condone their illegality.

His words“ You can see that our roof is intact. What we are doing is just hanging back the banner that the wind removed and they said that we should settle them and if not, they would close our business premises. That is how they drag the name of the Governor to the mud, because they always claim that they come from the office of the Governor or that Sanwo-Olu is aware of their mission. I am pleading with the Lagos state Government to call these LASBCA officers, especially those in Oshodi district and discipline them because they are disgracing the government".
