Pull Out: FG shuts Czech, Sri Lanka, Serbia missions, downsizes Ukraine


The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, says the Federal Government has closed three of the nation’s foreign missions and downsized another due to insufficient funds.

Onyeama said this on Tuesday in Abuja while speaking on activities of the ministry in the last three years.

The Minister said that the countries where Nigeria closed its missions included Sri Lanka, Czech Republic and Republic of Serbia while Ukraine was drastically downsized.

Before the closure, Nigeria had 119 foreign missions.

Onyeama added that the reduction of Nigeria’s foreign missions remains one of the agenda of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.

He explained that the closure of the missions was occasioned by inability of the ministry to maintain them due to insufficient funds.

“Every embassy has written to us about their huge financial demands. and when we go to these embassies we see clearly very unattractive state that does not reflect well on the country.

“Very often the staff of the embassy really find things extremely difficult.

“Clearly, if we want to operate on the scale and scope in which we are at the moment with over a 100 missions around the world, we need to spend a lot more.

He said though Nigeria has spent a lot, it was not enough, compared to what other countries around the world spend

“What I am saying is that rather than having this terrible circle of inadequate funding for missions, headquarters and so forth we have to reduce the scope.
“We should have foreign missions that we can fund, we might not necessarily close the embassies per se, it might be reducing the number of staff in the embassies.

“Because what we found out is that it is more expensive to close the embassies than operating them,” he said. – #obyorijiblog

Magic Johnson reveals why he left Lakers


Former Los Angeles Lakers executive Magic Johnson on Monday said a breakdown in relations with the team’s general manager Rob Pelinka contributed to his shock exit from the NBA franchise.


Johnson stunned the NBA on April 9 after dramatically quitting from his post as president of basketball operations at the struggling former powerhouses.

The move caught the team’s ownership and star player LeBron James by surprise, with Johnson giving no clue beforehand that he planned to leave.

On Monday, Johnson told ESPN he had stepped down because of his fractured relationship with Pelinka, accusing the Lakers GM of undermining him.

“I wasn’t having fun coming to work anymore,” the Lakers legend told ESPN’s First Take. “Especially when I gotta work beside [Pelinka], knowing that you want my position.”

Johnson said he had grown increasingly unhappy after being made aware of a whispering campaign he believes Pelinka orchestrated.

“I start hearing ‘Magic you’re not working hard enough, Magic is not in the office,’ so people around the Laker office was telling me Rob was saying things,” Johnson said.

“And I didn’t like those things being said behind my back, that I wasn’t in the office enough and so on. So I started getting calls from my friends outside of basketball (operations) saying those things were being said to them outside of basketball. Not just in the Laker office, in the media,” he added.
Johnson said the final straw came when Lakers owner Jeanie Buss did not back his request to fire head coach Luke Walton. – #obyorijiblog

Shocking: Video shows moment a uniform man exchanged something suspicious with Nairamarley while he exited the Court.


It seems trouble follows this young man everywhere he goes. But he looked so innocent and humble when leaving the court this raining day. While exiting the court this morning, the singer was surrounded by uniform men, and the men of the EFCC.


It seemed like a very innocent video this whole day, up until Nigerians noticed that a very jumpily suspicious uniform man was trying his hardest to negatively part of the other uniform men walking with the singer.


While others were dressed in a uniform manner which we identified as the police and efcc, all looking alike with the rest, a strangely dressed one who looked more like a custom officer or a prison warden, was seen suddenly holding on to the singer’s hands for a short while before suddenly letting go, and then the singer put his hands straight into the pocket.


While some are saying it is a drug/

marijuana, others are feeling unsettled with whatever it is that had him being that desperate enough to do it in front of the camera. What exactly could that be?

Air Peace De-board Passenger For Asking Attendant To Translate Safety Instructions in Igbo


According to saharareporters, an extra loving, attention seeking, English rejecting, Nigerian  language promoting Igbo man, has taken his English language protest to a very new level after he made a scene insisting that an Air peace attendant translates the safety instruction using Igbo so he non English speaking self can understand.

According to them,  A passenger with Air Peace was today de-boarded by the airline over claims that he could not communicate in English during safety briefing.

Iwarah declared that his de-boarding was necessary in a bid to guarantee the safety of its crew and customers and said it would not tolerate an act that would jeopardise safety on any of its flights.

My Opinion

I don’t think the man did anything wrong. If he wants the attendants to talk to him in his mother tongue, then that is it. Afterall, the airline has never categorically stated that English is their official language.

It could be that the man made a scene and caused chaos. But if he was to have that done on a peacefully manner as the airline implied, that means that he is right in the court of law.
