According to the trends data, using the past 7 (seven) days' filter 03-08-2022 to 10-08-2022.


Bola Ahmed Tinubu (49%)
Atiku Abubakar (26%)
Peter Obi (48%)
Rabiu Kwankwaso (3%)

There are still about 6 months before February 2023, but I can tell you that the significant contest will be between Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Peter Obi, and Atiku Abubakar.

There are also going to be lots of surprises, more swing states or battleground states are emerging.

Bola Ahmed Tinubu leads with about 15 states: Ekiti, Oyo, Osun, Ondo, Ogun, Kwara, Lagos, Jigawa, Plateau, Niger, Kogi, Kaduna, Bauchi, Borno, and Taraba.

It's good to share that in Lagos, Bola Ahmed Tinubu had 41%, while Peter Obi is at 38%.

Can Lagos be a swing state?

Next, Peter Obi leads with about 13 states: Edo, Delta, Benue, Nasarawa, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Cross River, Imo, Bayelsa, Abia, Ebonyi, Anambra, and Enugu.

Do you know that the FCT will also be a battleground?

Bola Ahmed Tinubu 37% and Peter Obi 37% each, according to the trends at this time.

Next, Atiku Abubakar with about 8 states: Kebbi, Yobe, Katsina, Sokoto, Zamfara, Gombe, Adamawa and Kano.

Yes, I was equally surprised with the traction from Kano - Atiku Abubakar 33%, Bola Ahmed Tinubu 26%, Rabiu Kwankwaso 24%, and Peter Obi 17%.

It’s good to share that Kwankwaso’s highest traction is from Kano, but they also have been growing in Jigawa, Katsina, Yobe, Bauchi, and Borno State.


(a) Katsina State - Bola Ahmed Tinubu 40% and Atiku Abubakar 41%.

(b) Yobe State - Atiku Abubakar 47% and Bola Ahmed Tinubu 41%.

(c) Lagos State - Bola Ahmed Tinubu 41% and Peter Obi 38%.

(d) Kebbi State - Atiku Abubakar 51% and Bola Ahmed Tinubu 49%.

(e) Edo State - Peter Obi 43% and Bola Ahmed Tinubu 38%.

(f) Plateau State - Peter Obi 37% and Bola Ahmed Tinubu 39%.

(g) Jigawa State - Bola Ahmed Tinubu 40% and Atiku Abubakar 39%.

(h) FCT - Peter Obi 37% and Bola Ahmed Tinubu 37%.

(i) Borno State - Bola Ahmed Tinubu 37% and Atiku Abubakar 36%.

(j) Benue State - Peter Obi 41% and Bola Ahmed Tinubu 36%.

(k) Nasarawa State - Bola Ahmed Tinubu 36% and Peter Obi 39%.

(l) Taraba State - Bola Ahmed Tinubu 36%, Peter Obi 34%, and Atiku Abubakar 30%.

In the 42 years existence of RCBC, we had the oldest graduating student ever in attendance. The octogenarian is mummy Ojie Mabel Iwegbundu. She is an 87 year old grandmother who was admitted and successfully completed her studies leading to the award of Postgraduate Diploma in Theology today from Faith Campus Zone, Ejigbo, Lagos State.
It is such a wonderful delight that RCBC programs have a broad spectrum appeal to diverse age groups.

Politics / FG To Implement Telecoms, Beverage Taxes In 2023 by Omooba77: 7:39am On Aug 08
The Federal Government through the Budget Office of the Federation has revealed that it will begin the implementation of its proposed excise duties on telecommunication services and beverages in 2023.

This is despite backlashes from the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Isa Pantami, and the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria.

Pantami had during the maiden edition of the Nigerian Telecommunications Indigenous Content Expo organised by the Nigeria Office for Developing the indigenous Telecom Sector, slammed the five per cent tax on telecoms services. He said, “The Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy is not satisfied with any effort to introduce excise duty on telecommunication services.

 “Beyond making our position known, we will go behind the scenes and go against any policy that will destroy the digital economy sector. We will go to any extent to legitimately and legally defend its interest.”

The Budget Office of the Federation, which is under the Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning, revealed its plan in its ‘2023 – 2025 Medium Term Expenditure Framework and Fiscal Strategy Paper,’ which was released on Friday.

According to the ministry, this was in a bid to boost its non-oil revenue streams. The minister further said that it expected excise duty revenue to grow exponentially because of the introduction of telecoms service charge.

Discussing the tax which is under the purview of the Nigeria Customs Service, the government said the NCS would introduce frameworks for recovering duties, taxes, and appropriate fees from transactions conducted over electronic networks.

Explaining one of the strategies that would be implemented to improve Customs’ revenue collections over the period 2023-2025, the office said, “Full implementation of excise duty on telecom services, alcoholic, sugar-sweetened beverages, cigarettes and tobacco products.

“Therefore, excise revenue is expected to grow exponentially because of the introduction of the telecom service charge and SSBs”

It explained that the law now empowered the FIRS to appoint anyone as its agent to withhold or collect VAT and remit same to the service.

Stating the government’s plight, the budget office said, “Revenue generation remains the major fiscal challenge of the Federal Government.

“The systemic resource mobilisation problem has been compounded by recent economic recessions. Recognising that domestic revenue mobilization is important for sustainable development, the Federal Government has instituted the Strategic Revenue Growth Initiatives to improve government revenue and entrench fiscal prudence, with emphasis on achieving value for money.

“These measures include improving the tax administration framework, including tax filing and payment, as well as the introduction of new and/or further increases in existing pro-health taxes like excise on sugar-sweetened beverages, tobacco, and alcohol. Mixed reactions have greeted the implementation of these measures.”

Speaking at a stakeholders’ forum on the implementation of excise duty on telecommunications services in Nigeria, the Minister of Finance Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, who spoke through Assistant Chief Officer of the Ministry, Mr Frank Oshanipin, said, “The duty rate was not captured in the Act because it is the responsibility of the President to fix rate on excise duties and he has fixed five per cent for telecommunication services which include GSM.

“It is public knowledge that our revenue cannot run our financial obligations, so we are to shift our attention to the non-oil revenue. The responsibility of generating revenue to run the government lies with us all.”

Responding to the new levy, the Chairman, Association of Licensed Telecom Owners of Nigeria, Gbenga Adebayo, had said telecom consumers would bear the burden of this additional five per cent tax, bringing the total tax paid by consumers to 12.5 per cent.

A report by The PUNCH had revealed that the Federal Government would generate about N160.46bn from excise duty on telecom services if it is implemented in 2023.

Speaking to our correspondent, the President, National Association of Telecoms Subscribers, Adeolu Ogunbanjo, said, “There is ample time to continue to advocate against it before then. They are set to implement and impoverish more people on their way out.

“It is unfortunate that despite the minister’s resentment, they are still going ahead. Why appoint the minister at all. Ministers are to advise the president on matters that are within their purview. They shouldn’t implement it, otherwise, Nigerians will react to this insensitive nature of the government. Let them look to other sectors, why telecoms?

“We will mobilise Nigerians to go against this.”

MAN had earlier opposed the imposition of taxes on alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, saying that it would hurt the industry.

For many, it was the greatest match of all time. On May 18, 1960, Real Madrid beat Eintracht Frankfurt 7-3 in the European Cup final at Hampden Park.

For the German side, that final will always remain in their memory because they lost with honour, but with the feeling that they would have achieved glory had they not have faced Alfredo Di Stefano's powerful Real Madrid.

The self-acclaimed Yoruba nation freedom fighter, Chief Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as ‘Sunday Igboho, has bemoaned the unabated killings and high level of insecurity in the country under the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, saying with the current situation, the country could not witness peace.

He, however, urged all Yoruba sons and daughters to think of having their own independent nation and reclaim their right, stating that Nigeria is not for the Yoruba.

Igboho, who spoke with Vanguard yesterday, through his spokesperson, Mr. Olayomi Koiki, against the backdrop of various unrest in the country, noted that he would continue to educate the people, especially the Yorubas about the union of 1914 amalgamation that was forced on 371 ethic groups in what’s call Nigeria today.

He  said: “We don’t think anyone should talk about election with the insecurity in Yorubaland and the fake 1999 constitution. Yoruba should think of having our own independent nation and reclaim back our rights.

“We won’t force anyone that want election just as we did not during the osun and ekiti. But we would continue to educate our people about the union of 1914 amalgamation that was force on 371 ethic groups in what’s call Nigeria today.

“Chief remains in high spirit and he continue to want a peaceful exit of the Yoruba people from Nigeria. Whatever Chief Said is now happening in Yoruba land.

“With the situations of things Nigeria can’t have peace. Why? We don’t have union and unity because we are all different.”

“Having a Yoruba nation is priority and won’t take the right of other indigenous people that want to live on our land so far our constitution is respected.”

“And I want ti state again, Yoruba nation awareness campaign is coming soon again. We also looking forward to the next united nation General Assembly for the next protest”

“Five million petitions have been completed. Our campaign remains peaceful according to the United Nations rights of the indigenous people,” he explained.

Politics / Terrorists Kill Three, Abduct Others In Katsina by Omooba77: 1:31pm On Aug 04
Three persons were killed in Dantsauni village in Batagarawa local government area of Katsina State when terrorists invaded the community.

The terrorists in their numbers, armed with sophisticated weapons, according to a source, explained that one of the deceased persons identified as Abdulrashid Abba Manna, a resident of Katsina, was trapped and killed by the terrorists when he went to farm in the morning at Dantsauni village.

A source said the attack came barely three days when bandits attacked surrounding communities of Babbar Ruga, Kwarin Maikotso and Kore villages where they operated freely and killed two people with eight others kidnapped.

During the attack on Dantsauni village which is about one kilometre away from Babbar Ruga village, the terrorists abducted dozens of people mostly women and children while hundreds of people were seen running towards the ancient city of Katsina for their dear lives.

Politics / NBC Fines Trust TV ₦5 Million Over Documentary About Bandits by Omooba77: 4:52pm On Aug 03
NBC Fines Trust TV N5m For Exposing Bandits

The National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) has imposed a fine of N5 million on Trust Television Network (Trust TV) over the broadcast of the documentary titled “Nigeria’s Banditry: The Inside Story”, which was aired by the station on the 5 March, 2022.

The NBC, in a letter to our company dated August 3, 2022, which was signed by its Director General, Balarabe Shehu Illela, said the fine was imposed on Trust TV because its broadcast of the said documentary contravened sections of the National Broadcasting Code.

In a statement, the management of Media Trust Group said, “While we are currently studying the Commission’s action and weighing our options, we wish to state unequivocally that as a television station, we believe we were acting in the public interest by shedding light on the thorny issue of banditry and how it is affecting millions of citizens of our country.

“The documentary traces the root of the communal tensions and systemic inadequacies which led to the armed conflict that is setting the stage for another grand humanitarian crisis in Nigeria. It presents insights into the intersection of injustice, ethnicity and bad governance as drivers of the conflict. It also aggregates voices of experts and key actors towards finding solutions, including those of the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Senator Saidu Mohammed Dansadau, who hails from one the worst hit communities in Zamfara State.

The statement added that other experts who featured in the documentary include scholars like Professor Abubakar Saddique of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and Dr. Murtala Ahmed Rufai of the Usmanu Danfodio University, Sokoto, who have both studied the subject of banditry for a long period. The documentary also brought to the fore the horrifying stories of victims of banditry.

Sorry for the blurry pics. My hand wasn't steady as I was snapping cos I didn't want the man sitting at one far end beside me to know I was taking shot of my food

Yep. So, I was not happy today and I was too tired to enter the kitchen so as I was strolling, I entered an eatery and got this for 1500. Though the man said it's 1600 but I told him it's too expensive and being a regular there ( just because of the fish), he told me to pay 1500.

At least this is better than the 1700 ogbono and semo I bought last time.

I'm still not happy. undecided.

Education / Dr. Philip Ozuah Donates $1 Million To University Of Ibadan by Omooba77: 10:16am On Aug 03
The $1 million.

The acting Dean of Medical College, University of Ibadan,Prof Adebola Ogunbiyi ,invited all the old students who are now doctors produced by the college to a zoom meeting.

The reason for the meeting was not farfetched.

The professor was sick with worry about the infrastructure decay and rot at the medical college she oversees in Ibadan.

She is aware that the Nigerian government is too broke to fund it, so she came up with a master stroke, which was to tap into the resources and social capital of the alumni produced by the medical college scattered all over the world to give the medical college a facelift.

A Zoom meeting was fixed on Monday, two days ago, and the link was sent to the former students of the medical college.

Starting off the meeting, Prof. Ogunbiyi narrated the challenges and plight the current medical students at the college are facing.

The current medical students of the college need a new hostel and their classes also need to be refurbished.

The acting Dean of the college ended her speech by appealing to the alumni of the college to support her in rebuilding and restoring the lost glory of the medical college.

Her speech opened the floodgates of donations from the medical doctors produced by the Medical College, University of Ibadan.

The donations were coming in trickles.

N1 million naira here

N200,000 there.

Until it got to the turn of Dr. Philip O. Ozuah (attached in the picture), an old student of the college who is currently the President and CEO of Montefiore Medicine in New York.

Philip Ozuah did not say too much as he went straight to the point of making a donation of $1,000,000 (700,000,000).

In his words, UI’s medical college shaped and refined him into the man he is today, so he has the duty to give back to the school.

When Dr. Philip announced the $1,000,000 donation, all of the old students in the zoom session began shouting, "Wow!" Wow..

Even the dean, who called the zoom meeting, was speechless as she did not see that coming.

None of the old students of the medical college could donate again since Ozuah had set a standard they could not match.

From shouting Wow! Wow! The Zoom fundraising meeting came to an end with the closing prayer said immediately.

It should be noted that Ozuah had his medical degree certification at the University of Ibadan and did his internship at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital before he proceeded to Southern California for his Master's program and got his PhD from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
