The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria has warned against the on-going conspiracy between the Federal Government through the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and some major telcom companies to further increase their data rates from December 1, 2016.

TUC disclosed this in a statement by its chairman, Comrade Bobboi Bala Kaigama.

The statement reads:”It is really startling the extent government and its capitalists cronies would go to frustrate the lives of Nigerians.

“We feel particularly awful about the move because data is one of the cheapest ways to empower the teaming youth. This move if allowed would make it unaffordable. In our view, this is insensitive and criminal on the part of the parties involved.

“Naturally, we had expected that government would increase awareness for greater citizens’ participation especially in ICT, but unfortunately they are doing the opposite. One cannot really situate Federal government policy direction these days; on one hand, the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is banking on ICT for youth empowerment while on the other, the NCC is trying to cut youth participation. All the promises made to the Chief Executive Officer of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg when he visited the country cannot be achieved if the policy is implemented.

“This is not the BEST WAY TO MAKE MONEY. This move is spineless and should be done away with. What then would be the benefit of the policy to the self employed who depend on data for their businesses? The truth is, cheap internet data is a vehicle of some sort to economic development. It is very unfortunate, very unreasonable and inhuman to come up with such idea at a period of recession. Any call for increase in anything for now is most unreasonable, uncalled for and a calculated attempt to record more suicide cases and insecurity in our already tension-soaked country.

“The telecoms sector was often used as a case study to justify the removal of fuel subsidy. But the question is, is the telecoms sector truly deregulated? What happens to the issue of free market in the telecoms sector? There is so much deceit and insincerity in the system. We are calling on government to come up with godly policies that would encourage investment and stimulate growth, instead of deliberately trying to stifle businesses”.

TRENDING: Message to Reverend Mbaka from Reno Omokri


Dear Reverend Fr. Mbaka, The wife of an evangelist was beheaded-you kept quiet. Her suspected killers were acquitted-you kept quiet. However, today you have find your voice to defend President Muhammadu Buhari and condemn former President Goodluck Jonathan. 
As a Reverend Father, were you called by God to speak for a man who has 5 media aides and a minister of information all speaking for him or where you called to speak for the poor and powerless children of God who face injustice with no one speaking for them?

Chimamanda Adichie uncomfortable with her new beauty campaign

                               Chimamanda Adichie uncomfortable with her new beauty campaign

In a conversation with The New York Times, Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie talked beauty, feminism and femininity. When asked if she consider fashion and makeup entry point to a wider audience, the brutally honest award-winning writer, who was recently made the New Face of Boots No7 makeup said:

“I decided to do this No7 thing because I thought it might be fun, and then they will give me free makeup. And I’m always up for free things. It wasn’t a carefully calculated thing. It was actually just my being blinded by the selfish overwhelming love of makeup. But I have to be honest, there were times when I thought, “Well, what have I done?” I wasn’t quite aware of how many pictures of me would be out there. It makes me feel a little vulnerable. 

I told my friends to stop sending me pictures of when they see me at the bus stop in London or something. It’d be very dishonest to say it’s all wonderful. It’s not so much a question of regret. But it does come with feelings of vulnerability that can be uncomfortable” Read the full interview here.

I’m A Celebrity’s Ola Jordan reveals baby goals after sex confession: ‘I would like to be a mum’


The blonde star opened up about her hopes of becoming a mother

She quit Strictly Come Dancing so she could star a family, and then was offered a spot on I’m A Celebrity, but now Ola Jordan has been given the boot from the ITV show and has already started practising with her husband James.

The former Strictly dancer, 34, spoke about her desire to have children while in the jungle with her campmates.

The blonde star revealed that she’s not sure if she has any fertility issues, but is keen to become a mother.

“We talked about our kids, having kids, wanting kids. We did talk about it,” she told The Sun

“I would like to be a mum one day. I don’t know if I can or I can’t, you just don’t know. I would like to one day.”

Ola also shot down any suggestion that any of her fellow campmates tried to make a move on her, as she said: “No way, no. Everyone knew I was very happily married.”

I’m A Celeb star Ola admitted she jumped straight into bed with husband James after leaving the jungle.
The former Strictly professional admitted she had to scrub herself down for an hour after gathering layers of dirt from camp.

She then enjoyed a steamy sex session which “only took two minutes”, according to hubby James.

She said: “I had a bath, got in and had a proper scrub, then I had a shower to wash it all off. And we had a kiss and a cuddle.”

Sitting next to Ola, James , 38, added: “It only took two minutes.”

The professional dancer, 34, insisted that “a lady never tells but we have a very healthy relationship

“Missing James was the hardest part. Definitely. Missing James, missing my family. It’s hard.

“People just see the days we are on TV, but I’ve been away from James for three weeks, it’s a long time.

The young Republican who’s bigger than Trump on Facebook

                                 Tomi Lahren
One of Facebook’s most popular conservatives burst into prominence with sharp viral rants against liberals. But how will her underdog attack style play under President Trump?

She’s a free speech advocate who tells her opponents to sit down and quit throwing tantrums.

An anti-feminist who admires strong women. A sharply partisan commentator who says she feeds people the truth. A rap fan who’s made an enemy of the Black Lives Matter movement. And a combative polemicist who says that all really she wants to do is start a conversation.

Meet Tomi Lahren: a 24-year-old Republican provocateur, a photogenic rising media star, a high-energy mass of contradictions – and one of the most popular commentators on Facebook.

Lahren presents a programme on conservative news outlet TheBlaze, but her fame stems mainly from one segment in particular. “Final Thoughts” are three-minute screeds delivered at blistering pace – she talks more than 50% faster than the average English speaker – directly into the camera.

They’re biting, outlandish, dripping with sarcasm and – depending on your political perspective – either righteous and rousing or obnoxious and infuriating.

Lahren’s videos routinely get more views than even those posted on Donald Trump’s official Facebook page.

Perhaps her most notable video essay took aim at mixed-race American football player Colin Kaepernick, who touched off controversy this year when he declared he would kneel instead of stand when the US national anthem is played before games. Kaepernick says the gesture is a protest against racial oppression, and it’s been the subject of fierce debate. Read More on BBC

Germany extremism: Intelligence agency employee arrested over Islamist comments

                                This file photo taken on February 4, 2014 shows the headquarters of a German domestic intelligence (Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution) (Bundesamt fuer den Verfassungsschutz), in Cologne.
An employee of the German intelligence agency (BfV) has been arrested after making Islamist statements and sharing agency material, German media report.

A BfV spokesman quoted by Reuters news agency did not confirm a report in Die Welt newspaper that the man was suspected of planning a bomb attack on the BfV’s Cologne office.

“There is no evidence to date that there is a concrete danger,” he added.

The BfV said the man, a German, had previously “behaved inconspicuously”.

“The man is accused of making Islamist statements on the Internet using a false name and of revealing internal agency material in Internet chatrooms,” the spokesman added.

Die Welt also reported that the man was caught by an agency informant, with the pair having online conversations about a possible attack.

BfV did not confirm which part of the intelligence agency the accused worked in, though German news magazine Der Spiegel said the man was recently hired to observe the Islamist situation in Germany.

It also reported that the man’s family had no knowledge of his conversion to Islam, which the publication said took place in 2014.

The BfV – the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution – is Germany’s domestic intelligence agency. Its counterpart, the Federal Intelligence Service (BND), deals with foreign intelligence.

There are an estimated 40,000 Islamists in Germany, including 9,200 ultra-conservative Islamists known as Salafists, the head of the BfV told Reuters news agency earlier in November.
