TAMBUWAL/SENATE

It is unconstitutional for the Nigerian Senate to subject the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC’s power to conduct elections to the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC.

A former speaker of the House of Representatives and Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, made this known in a statement forwarded to the press, noting that INEC’s constitutional power cannot be shared with any institution.

Citing a section of the 1999 constitution, Governor Tambuwal pointed out that the registration of voters and the conduct of elections shall be subject to the direction and supervision of the electoral body.

The Governor maintained that the rights to conduct, supervise, undertake and organize elections in Nigeria have been solely and exclusively prescribed by the constitution to INEC, and cannot be shared with the NCC, or any other authority.

S’AFRICA/UNREST

South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, has vowed that his administration will not allow anarchy and mayhem to devour the country.

President Ramaphosa made the vow as massive unrest triggered by the imprisonment of his predecessor, Jacob Zuma, led to the death of scores of persons, injury of hundreds and the looting of product supply chains and transport links.

The President, who asserted that the violence that has swept across the country is clearly planned, therefore promised to do everything possible to end the mayhem and ensure perpetrators are brought to book.

The South African President’s vow comes as the government prepares to deploy about 25 thousand troops across the country to curb the unrest from escalating further.

U.N/KENYA

The United Nations Children’s agency, UNICEF, has berated the growing reports of kidnapping and murder of children in Nairobi and other parts of Kenya.

This is sequel to the arrest and detention of a 20-year old man, Masten Wanjala, who confessed to the killing of more than 10 children.

Reacting in a statement made available to journalists, UNICEF officials condemned the kidnapping and killing, demanding that those responsible must be held to account and additional measures taken to protect children.

Report indicated that the court had detained Wanjala for 30 days pending investigations that could lead to murder charges, with police authorities saying he showed no remorse and appeared to enjoy killing the children.

U.S/RUSSIA

The United States and Germany have pledged to do all within their powers to stand together against any aggression from Russia.

U.S President, Joe Biden gave the hint while addressing a joint news conference with outgoing German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, in Washington D.C, stressing that both leaders agreed that Russia cannot be allowed to use energy as a weapon.

President Biden also said the two sides opposed anti-democratic actions by China, insisting that no stone will be left unturned to uphold democratic principles and human rights.

Commenting, the outgoing German chancellor, who has worked with four U.S presidents, expressed sympathy for the dozens of people killed by heavy flooding back home in Germany.

WORLD LEADERS/APEC

World leaders, including United States President, Joe Biden, and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, are planning to meet virtually to seek collective actions to navigate the covid-19 pandemic and its economic impacts.

A statement issued to newsmen revealed that the meeting of the Asia-Pacific Trade Group, APEC, will highlight growing concerns around covid-19 as countries such as Indonesia, Thailand and Australia face new waves of infections.

One of the U.S officials disclosed that during the meeting, President Biden will make clear that the U.S has an enduring commitment to the region and as well put forward a vision for the region.

APEC had been unable to agree on a communique at their 2018 meeting in Papua New Guinea, PNG, over unending differences between the U.S and China.

W.H.O/CHINA

Director General of the World Health Organization, W.H.O, is appealing to Chinese authorities to be more co-operative with the agency’s second phase of investigation into the origins of Covid-19.

Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus made the plea while speaking at a news conference in Geneva, Switzerland, calling for more access and transparency.

Ghebreyesus, who lamented that china did not share necessary data with the W.H.O team during the first investigation, hinted that this time around, the U.N health agency needed access to raw patient data from just before and at the start of the pandemic.

The first phase of the W.H.O’s investigation which ended in February 2021 had concluded that it was highly unlikely that the Covid-19 virus came from a laboratory in Wuhan, China, and that it probably originated in bats.

EUROPE/FLOOD

Death toll from the devastating floods that is sweeping across Western Axis of Europe have soared to at least 93, most of them in Western Germany and Belgium.

The masses of water dubbed the “FLOOD OF DEATH” by Germany’s top-selling daily reportedly caught residents of several regions unaware and left destruction and despair in their wake.

Germany’s death toll is said to be by far the highest and is likely to rise as large numbers of people are still missing in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate, the hardest-hit states.

Neighboring Belgium counted at least 12 dead persons, while Luxembourg and the Netherlands were also severely affected by the torrents of water, with thousands evacuated in the city of Maastricht.

AFGHAN/TALIBAN

Senior Afghan officials are expected to arrive in Doha, the Qatari capital, later today, for talks with leaders of the militia group called the Taliban.

The meeting comes as the insurgent group takes a hard stance on negotiations, even warning Turkey against plans to keep some troops in Afghanistan to run and guard Kabul’s main airport.

Addressing newsmen ahead of the intra-Afghan peace talks with the Taliban, head of the high council for national reconciliation, and former Chief Executive Officer of Afghanistan, Abdullah Abdullah, expressed hopes that the meeting will yield a positive response.

The meeting between the high-powered Afghan government delegation and the Taliban is geared towards jump-starting a long-stalled peace process which comes as the United States winds down its military presence in the South Asian country.

SPORTS

Arsenal’s Winger, Bukayo Saka and Red Bull Salzburg’s Karim-David Adeyemi, have emerged as some of the names on the 80-man list of nominations for the 2021 Golden Boy Award.
