Nigerian Newspapers: 10 things you need to know this Friday morning

Good morning! Here are 10 things you need to know this morning:

1. Femi Kuti has threatened that the Kuti’s family will reject the centenary award for the late Fela Anikulapo Kuti. He said the family will not accept the award when the Federal Government has not apologised to the family for killing his grandmother, Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti and destroying the Kalakuta Republic. The awards hold today in Abuja.

2. The statement credited to Elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark that Nigeria will not disintegrate after its 100 years of existence made the headline this morning. Clark said all the tussles in the country were mere struggle for power, and not for disintegration. He was speaking as a guest lecturer at the 7th Distinguished Lecture Series of School of Media and Communication, Pan Atlantic University, Victoria Island, Lagos.

3. Kaduna State Police Command has announced the recovery a two‑month‑old baby, Sulaiman Adamu,who was stolen from his mother at Maraban Jos, in Igabi Local Government Area of the state. The culprit, Hassana Mohammed had ran away with the child while plaiting her hair.

4. Still on the centenary award, the family of the late Gani Fawehinmi has rejected the award for the late lawyer. The family said it would be improper to receive such an award when the late Human Right Activist, if alive, wouldn’t have received such an award when insecurity and corruption have taken over the country.

5. The National Judicial Council (NJC) has suspended two judges, Justice Gladys Olotu of the Abuja Federal High Court and Justice U. A. Inyang of the Federal Capital Territory High Court over allegation of judicial misconduct. The NJC has also sent a recommendation letter to President Jonathan for onward removal of the two judges.

6. The Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers state under the leadership of Felix Obuah has accused the Rivers State Governor, rotimi Amaechi for being behind the kidnap of its members in the state. Chairman of the party in Port Harcourt Local Government Area, Mr. Ikechi Chinda, a former member of the House of Representatives, Mr. Chinyere Igwe and Mr. Allwell Ihunda have all been kidnapped by some unknown gunmen.

7. No fewer than 37 people were killed in Adamawa state on Wednesday by suspected islamist terrorists when they launched an attack on four communities to include; Michika, Gulak , Shuwa and Krichinga. Report says the Military took to their heels when the communities were attacked.

8. That the country’s unity is threatened is an understatement as three former Heads of State, General Ibrahim Babangida, Gen. Buhari, and Olusegun Obasanjo failed to show up at the opening ceremony of the Nigerian Centenary. Equally absent was the Senate President, David Mark. No reason was given for their absence.

9. It is in the news this morning that 20 Auditors trained in gas and oil auditing have been contracted to examine the accounts of the NNPC. This was disclosed on Thursday by the Auditor General for the Federation (AGF), Mr Samuel Ukura while addressing the House Committee on Public accounts.

10. Finally, Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain has sent a congratulatory message to President Goodluck Jonathan, the Federal Government and Nigerians on the occasion of the country’s centenary. She said the occasion brings back the fond memories of her visits to Nigeria in the past, emphasising on the solid relationship between Nigeria and Britain..
