ECOWAS Lifts Sanctions On Niger And Other Junta-led Nations

Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has removed the economic sanctions imposed on Niger Republic, Burkina Faso, Mali and Guinea.

Lifestyle Nigeria reports that the Chairman of ECOWAS and Nigerian President, Bola Tinubu, on Saturday, said the decision was based on humanitarian considerations, especially because of the Lenten period and the approaching month of Ramadan.

Tinub spoke at the extraordinary summit of ECOWAS on the political, security, and peace conditions held in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

The regional bloc, however, said the political and targeted sanctions remain.

The West African bloc had in a swift response to the military coup in Niger, enforced a no-flight zone over the country.

The Nigerian government also cut off the power supply to the military-ruled country to persuade the juntas to restore democracy in the country.

Tinubu, according to a statement by his Spokesperson, Ajuri Ngelale, said: “Everything we did was in hopes of persuading our brothers that there existed a better path, a path that would lead to genuine improvement of their people’s welfare through democratic good governance. And this was a path each of our nations had solemnly agreed with one another pursuant to formal regional treaty and protocol.

“However, the sanctions that we contemplated might help lead our brothers to the negotiating table have become a harsh stumbling block. In my mind and heart, that which is hurtful yet ineffective serves no good purpose and should be abandoned.



Divorce: Court Bars Wife Who Stripped Pastor In Public From Coming Near Him – Lifestyle Nigeria

An Ibadan Customary Court has granted the prayer for divorce by Pastor David Odeniyi from his wife, Bolanle, citing disturbing allegations of domestic violence and public humiliation.

The Pastor, a resident of Basorun, Ibadan, brought his case before the Mapo Grade ‘A’ Customary Court, detailing a pattern of physical abuse and emotional distress inflicted by his wife.

According to Pastor Odeniyi, Bolanle subjected him to physical attacks, including an incident where she stripped him naked during a church service, causing a scene among the congregation. He also alleged that she abandoned him and their child, traveling to Libya without his consent and remaining outside Nigeria for two years.

Despite previous attempts at reconciliation through legal channels, Pastor Odeniyi was forced to revisit the court due to Bolanle’s failure to amend her behavior. During the proceedings, Bolanle was noticeably absent when called to defend herself against the allegations, further complicating the matter.

Describing the anguish he endured, Pastor Odeniyi stated, “She pulls and drags my trousers to disgrace me. Had I known my wife would treat me like this, I would never have married her.”

Presiding over the case, the court’s President, Mrs. S.M. Akintayo, acknowledged the gravity of the allegations and granted Odeniyi’s request for a divorce. Additionally, the court issued a restraining order against Bolanle, prohibiting her from further harassment or interference in her estranged husband’s private life.

Fuel Subsidy Back, Costlier Than Before – El-Rufai


The immediate past governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has said the Federal Government was now paying more for fuel subsidy than before.

El-Rufai disclosed this while speaking with newsmen after delivering the lead paper at a capacity-building workshop on Enhancing Skills of Government Officials in Policy Implementation and Productive Human Resource Management for political appointees in Maiduguri on Monday.

He said, “The federal government is now subsidizing fuel; many people don’t know this.”

Applauding the policy, El-Rufai added, “It is a right policy. I have always supported the withdrawal of oil subsidy; but in the course of implementing the policy, the government realised that subsidy has to be back; right now, government is paying a lot of money for subsidy, even more than before.

“You start implementing a policy because you are absolutely sure it is the right policy, but in the course of implementation, you come across bottlenecks, and you modify.

“The keyword in leadership, in my view, is pragmatism. You should be pragmatic. So when you make a policy, you start implementing it, and it doesn’t seem to work well. You should have the humility to stand back and say this is not working, and you modify it.”
