Word on the Street: Nigerian police gets salary increase, why Tekno is away from the music scene and more
Good morning friends, hope you had a great Monday? What did you miss yesterday you ask? Read on.
Officers of the Nigerian Police Force get salary increase
President Buhari has approved salary, allowances and pension increase for police officers across Nigeria.
This, according to Bubu will help “will increase the performance index of the police and strengthen Nigeria’s internal security system.”
Elections are coming and Bubu is acting brand new, can you imagine?
I’m glad police personnels are getting the salary increase they deserve because it has always bothered me to know that underpaid people are expected to handle weapons and “protect” Nigerians.
Tekno is sick
You probably already knew that. What you might not know however is that the musician’s ailment has damaged his vocal cords temporarily.
Ubi Franklin, owner of Triple MG, the record label with which Tekno is signed, made this known in an Instagram post yesterday.
Apparently, Tekno has been MIA from the music scene, cancelling shows and all because he’s been treating an undisclosed ailment. Get well soon Tekno Miles.
We heard Governor Ganduje donated ₦10 million to EFCC and ICPC
The Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) has actually come out to debunk this news.
Yesterday, many publishing houses published the news of how Kano State Governor Ganduje hosted the EFCC, the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) and Athletic Federation of Nigeria (AFN), the organisers of the upcoming anti-corruption marathon in Abuja and donated ₦10 million to their cause.
This is a big deal because the governor has been accused of corruption in the recent past. “Accused” seems inadequate because his corruption practices were caught on camera. He has since denied it and sued Daily Nigerian for ₦3 billion for releasing those videos on social media.
EFCC says it didn’t receive any money though. Think they are just trying to save face? We’ll probably never know.
Dahsall. Have a great Tuesday.
