Three Ways To Connect With Him

We all know that physical attraction is one of the main keys to an attraction. However, what happens when the beauty begins to fade?
This is why it is important to emotionally connect with him so that he sees you more than just a friend.
You need to understand that a man and a woman’s psyche are different.

Throwing a few jokes or stories is not a guarantee that you will get a part of his heart. You are probably afraid that if you express your true emotions, it will be a turn-off.

Yet, there are some women who naturally attract men to themselves.

The good thing is they learned this skill and you can too. It all boils down to getting acquainted with some personality traits.
First, you have to find out if he is emotionally available. This is because some have placed barriers that make them inaccessible emotionally. Examples of these kinds of men abound. The classic player, devoted husbands, committed businessmen who have cut off love, extreme conservatives.

If he is, then you move on to the stage of encouraging him to open up.

The biggest rule to take into cognizance here is that first impression matters and that includes your dressing and your grace. You want him to look forward to meeting you again and you want to look stunning all the time. You might want to look at your dress looks again.

The next step is mesmerising him intellectually. This will make him think you have something to interesting to contribute. Now that you have got his attention, stir up him emotional interest by using the right words and actions via planting ideas, flirting and being versatile in your conversations.

Reuben Abati, Daniel, In Kashamu’s Candidates’ List To INEC

INEC

Abeokuta – The former Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Dr Reuben Abati and the former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, were amongst the names of candidates submitted by Senator Buruji Kashamu’s faction of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State to Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

In a statement personally signed by the Senator, Leke Shittu, who emerged at the primaries conducted by the faction led by Adebayo Dayo remained the gubernatorial candidate of the party, while Abati was named as his running mate.

Daniel, who is the Director General of Atiku Abubakar Presidential Primary Campaign Organisation, was also named as the Ogun East Senatorial candidate of the party, the current position occupied by Kashamu.

The Senator also revealed that all the candidates by Adebayo Dayo exco in all levels have been received and acknowledged by the electoral body.

The statement read, “The candidates’ list of the Kashamu backed Bayo Dayo exco of Ogun PDP has been received and fully acknowledged by INEC for the 2019 elections. Prince Leke Shitu and Dr Rueben Abati were duly acknowledged as the Ogun PDP Governorship and Deputy Governorship candidates respectively.

“Former Ogun state Governor, HE Otunba Gbenga Daniel is for the Senate, Ogun East and all other candidates for the Senatorial, Federal House of Representatives and the State House of Assembly were equally accepted and duly acknowledged.”

The Senator, who took a swipe at the National Chairman and the National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Uche Secondus and Kola Ologbondiyan, respectively, saying that the duo were deliberately acting unlawfully having refused all wise counsel.

Kashamu said the leadership of the Party was ignorant of the fact that both the chapter Chairman and Secretary can sign on behalf of the National Chairman and the Secretary in the event of judicial resolution in the case of Ogun State.

He further alleged that the leadership of the Party has an unexplainable desperation to install Ladi Adebutu as the governorship candidate in the state.

He however vowed not to be intimidated out of the Party, insisting that the PDP is a creation of Nigeria for all Nigerians who are willing to be members.

He said: “Any rumours being peddled around by our National Chairman and National Publicity Secretary through a purported press release should be disregarded as the duo are deliberately acting unlawfully and beyond their powers to which they’ve refused wise counsel to tow the path of rule of law.

“The guarantee of our democracy under established regulations and rule of law is that no party official, no matter how highly placed could use the office for selfish preservation/promotion  of his own interests and legacy at the detriment of the interests and legacy of other party members.

“This resolve to act with unchecked impunity shall be fully resisted in a fight to finish battle to strengthen our party’s internal democracy.

“Ignorantly, the National Chairman is unaware that where there is dispute resulting into a judicial resolution as in Ogun state matter, the State Chairman and Secretary could sign in place of National Chairman and Secretary when backed by validly subsisting court judgements.

“Whatever makes our National Chairman to be this resolute at challenging the constituted electoral regulatory body, INEC and also dwelling in nauseating impunity against Nigerian court judgements out of unexplainable desperation to install Ladi Adebutu as PDP Ogun governorship candidate should as well have forced him to create his own INEC and conduct elections inside his office.

“The PDP as a Nigerian creation by law is for all Nigerians by established regulations and national statue; nobody can as such intimidate us in our democracy.

“All the state elders, leaders and party faithful are again enjoined to continue and remain focused on the ongoing aggressive mobilisation and reconciliation efforts for our party, PDP to come out victorious in the forthcoming elections. I’m emboldened by the power and grace of almighty Allah and shall NEVER succumb to injustice.”

US-backed Syria force suspends anti-IS attacks after Turkey hits

A fighter from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) attends the funeral of a commander, killed a day earlier in the town of Hajin during battles against the Islamic State (IS) group, in the Kurdish-controlled city of Qamishly in northeastern Syria, on October 29, 2018. – The Islamic State group ousted a US-backed coalition of Kurdish and Arab forces from its holdout in eastern Syria on October 28, killing dozens of fighters, a monitoring group said. (Photo by Delil SOULEIMAN / AFP)

A Kurdish-led force backed by a US-led coalition on Wednesday suspended operations against the Islamic State group and said they would not resume until Turkey halts its attacks on Kurdish militia posts in northern Syria.

The Syrian Democratic Forces, joint Arab-Kurdish units under Kurdish command, announced a “temporary halt” to their operation, launched in eastern Syria on September 10, and condemned Turkey’s “provocations”.

On Wednesday, Turkish shelling of Kurdish positions in the Kobane sector of northern Syria killed four fighters, according to Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news agency.

The SDF condemned what it called the “coordination” of Turkey’s attacks with a fightback by jihadists and warned of “a prolonged halt to our military operation” against IS if Ankara keeps up its strikes.

Hundreds of Kurdish civilians, carrying party flags and portraits of jailed Turkish Kurdish separatist leader Abdullah Ocalan, demonstrated in the streets of the northeastern city of Qamishli to denounce the Turkish attacks.

“These attacks serve to support the mercenaries” of IS, said a protester, 44-year-old teacher Rizan Hamo. “The international community and the world must stop the Turkish state.”

Backed by coalition air strikes, the SDF aims to expel IS from a holdout on the Iraqi border, but the jihadists staged a fierce fightback last week under the cover of a sand storm, using suicide bombings to force a retreat.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the IS counter-attack killed at least 72 fighters from the SDF, which is dominated by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).

The monitoring group said hundreds of Kurdish fighters, men and women, had since been deployed on the outskirts of the IS holdout of Hajin.

But, the Britain-based monitor said Wednesday, “on the ground, everything has come to a halt”.

On Tuesday, two days after another round of shelling of Kurdish posts in northern Syria, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country had completed preparations for a new operation to “destroy” the YPG militia, which Ankara has branded a terrorist group.

“We are going to destroy the terrorist structure in the east of the Euphrates. We have completed our preparations, plans, programmes regarding this issue,” said Erdogan, who has made similar threats in the past.

The YPG has worked closely with the United States in the fight against IS jihadists in Syria, straining ties between NATO allies Washington and Ankara.

The animosity between Syria’s Kurds and Turkey underlines the complexity of the multi-front Syrian conflict that has cost over 360,000 lives since it broke out in 2011 with anti-government protests that were violently suppressed by the regime.

Earlier this year, Turkish military forces supported Syrian opposition fighters in seizing the Afrin region, west of the Euphrates, from the YPG in a two-month air and ground offensive.

Ankara previously launched an offensive between 2016 and 2017 against IS on its border with Syria, as well as blocking the YPG from linking up areas under its control.

2019: Bisi Akande tasks USA chapter of APC on re-election of Buhari 

USAFORMER Interim National Chairman of All Progressives Congress, Chief Bisi Akande, has urged the leadership of the United State (USA) chapter of the party to contribute its own quota to the success of APC and the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari, come 2019.

Chief Akande made this call while delivering his goodwill message at the 2nd National Convention of the chapter held in Washington DC where Prof Adesegun Labinjo emerged as chairman to take over from Mr Tony Isama.

Labinjo is the former APC-USA Deputy National Chairman South.

The new national officers were sworn in by Hon. Judge Dele Alade, who is APC-USA Leader and chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT).

                          ALSO READ: US President Trump plans to end birthright citizenship ―Axios

Akande commended the party leadership for demonstrating a high level of discipline, organisational skill and orderliness which, which he said were worthy of emulation.

Also elected, in a statement signed by the chapter’s spokesperson, Dr Francis Onukwuli, were Chief Emeka Molokwu (Deputy National Chairman South) and Dr Charles Mambula (Deputy National Chairman North) while Mrs Ronke Ekwensi as the national secretary.

Other include: national publicity secretary, Dr. Onukwuli; national organizing secretary, Mr. Foly Coker; national treasurer, Mr. Ayo Olashege (CPA); national financial secretary, Ms. Constance Iloh; national women leader, Alhaja Adenike Oyejide; national welfare officer, Mr Abisoye Oladejo; national legal adviser, Ken Nwele Esq;, national youth leader, Mr Olalekan Ogunmeno and deputy national secretary, Mr Ademola Tijani.

The rest are deputy national publicity secretary, Prince Adebanjo Adejuwon; deputy national organising secretary, Mrs Modupe Ayangbesan; deputy national women leader, Ms Elizabeth Olagunju; deputy national welfare officer, Mr Bishop Adejube; deputy national legal adviser, Banji Dada, Esq and deputy national youth leader, Mr Oyakhilome Bello.

Political Adviser to President Buhari, Senator Babafemi Ojudu; immediate past chapter, Lagos State chapter of APC, Otunba Henry Ajomale; the party national vice chairman Southwest, Barrister Bankole Oluwajana; Chief Kareem Daramola, Mr Bola Ajimotokan, Mr Folu Ojutalayo and Mr Ade Omole, all took a turn to address the convention.

Goodwill messages were read at the convention, including messages from APC Deputy National Chairman (North), Senator Lawal Shuaibu; Chairman APC-UK Chapter, Dr Philip Idaewor and Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Foreign Affairs & Diaspora, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa.

The statement said APC-USA members, at the convention, called on Nigerians to continue to support the Buhari/Osinbajo government and the party as they continue to position Nigeria for development and greatness in the 21st century.

According to them, the Buhari administration had stabilized the Nigeria economy and that the single payer account system of the Federal Government had saved Nigeria a lot of money by blocking the loopholes through which the corrupt elements syphoned money.

They equally said that the rapid infrastructural developments and the gigantic progress in the agricultural sector, and the war against corruption and terrorism of the Buhari administration must continue.

Speaking further, the statement called on Nigerians to reject the current gang up against President Buhari and the APC by those it called corrupt and discredited politicians and some corrupt high profile individuals in the country.

“These are the people that plundered our commonwealth and looted our treasury making Nigeria one of the poorest countries in the world despite the abundant natural and human resources in the country,” it said.

It called on Nigerians to take their destinies in their hands and reject the PDP and its candidates at all levels, saying: “We cannot afford to go back to the sixteen years of destruction and unabated looting by the PDP during Obasanjo and Jonathan administrations. When you fight corruption, corruption fights back.”

The statement, therefore, reiterated the APC-USA’s commitment to continue to support Buhari and APC candidates at all levels and to make the expertise and the technical knowledge of its members available to the party-led governments at all levels to help in executing their programmes for the country.

Minimum Wage: NLC Speaks Tough, Vows To Paralyse Nigeria’s Economy

Labour strike

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has rejected the N22,500 proposed by the state governors as the New National Minimum Wage for workers in the country.

Mr Ayuba Wabba, NLC president, said this while briefing newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) had issued a communique after its meeting claiming that state governors can only pay N22, 500, as the new national minimum wage.

“We wish to reiterate our position adopted at our National Executive Council (NEC) meeting on Oct. 23 that any figure below N30, 000 will not be accepted by us.

“We call on our members to continue to mobilise in preparation for the commencement of an indefinite strike on Nov. 6, if by then necessary steps are not taken to adopt the recommendation of the Tripartite Committee,� Wabba said.

The NLC president also said that the NGF was not a negotiating body but merely a party in the negotiation for the convenience of state governors.

He also noted that the Tripartite Committee from inception sent letters to each state government to send their memorandum as their contributions to the new national minimum wage negotiating process.

The President, however, said that 21 states sent in their memorandum quoting figures.

“Second, the demand of organised labour is not N30, 000. Our initial demand is N66, 500. N30, 000 is the compromise figure arrived at the end of negotiations by the tripartite partners, which are the governors, employers and organised labour.

“The new minimum wage was a product of intense negotiation that lasted for almost one year,� he said.

He also noted that the governors had six representatives on the tripartite committee; one state governor represented each of the geo-political zones.

He said that the representatives of the state governors were part and parcel of the negotiating committee from the beginning to the end.

Wabba said, “It is important to note that the National Minimum Wage is not an allocation to workers but a product of negotiation by the tripartite partners.�

He said that the unilateral pronouncement by governors is an abuse of every known principle of industrial relations, laws, processes and international best practices.

“Third, the NGF, erroneously, stated that the population of salaried workers is five per cent of the general population in Nigeria.

“This five per cent represent the nation’s workforce including teachers, health workers, police personnel, military men and women and among other workers labouring for the development of our country.

“Of what benefit are roads, rails and bridges without human beings to run them?

“Fourth, we are also very concerned about the huge pressure being brought upon the Organised Private Sector (OPS) to compromise their stand on the N30, 000 New National Minimum Wage.

“This pressure by enemies of the Nigerian people was what led to the recent statement by NACCIMA that sought to cast aspersion on an already negotiation on the New National Minimum Wage.

“I have spoken to the Head of NACCIMA and she has disputed what has been published by many newspapers.

“I am also aware that the Nigeria Employers Consultative Association (NECA) will also issue an official statement, “Wabba added.

He explained that labour demands that the constitutional, legal and morally right step to be taken at this point is for the Chairman of National Minimum Wage Tripartite Negotiating Committee to submit the report of the already concluded negotiations to Mr President.

He also advised all the governors to return to their respective states and gather their workers and tell them reason they cannot pay N30,000 not just coming to Abuja to announce they cannot pay

FIFA bans Ghana's former football president for life

(FILES) In this file photo taken on June 23, 2014 President of The Ghana Football Association Kwesi Nyantakyi answers questions during a press conference in Maceio during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. An explosive documentary has rocked Ghana's football association, showing executives including the organisation's head allegedly proposing bribes worth millions of euros. Nyantakyi was caught suggesting lucrative deals to undercover journalists posing as "investors" in the film "Number 12", which was shown pn June 6, 2018 at a preview attended by diplomats and politicians in the capital Accra. / AFP PHOTO / Carl DE SOUZA

Ghana’s former football president Kwesi Nyantakyi has been banned by FIFA from football for life and ordered to pay a hefty fine after being found guilty of bribery and corruption.

FIFA’s ethics committee banned Nyantakyi “for life from all football-related activities (administrative, sports or any other) at both national and international level,” it said in a statement issued Tuesday.

The committee found Nyantakyi guilty of “conflicts of interest”, “bribery and corruption” and “commission” after being caught on camera accepting bribes.

Along with the ban, Nyantakyi faces a fine of CHF 500,000 ($496,000, 438,000 euros).

In June, a documentary by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas was broadcast showing hidden camera footage of Ghanaian officials taking bribes, including Nyantakyi.

Nyantakyi was accused of requesting $11 million (9.3 million euros) to secure government contracts.

The revelations rocked Ghana, where football is the national sport and which prides itself as being a stable democracy in an often turbulent region.

In September, the Referees Association of Ghana said it had banned eight referees and assistant referees for life while 53 officials were subject to 10-year bans.

Football analysts have described corruption as a “curse” on African football.

On Tuesday, 10 youth players from Benin were jailed for one month each for lying about their age after they were kicked out of qualifying for next year’s under-17 Africa Cup of Nations finals.

At the same hearing, the former president of Benin’s football federation, Anjorin Moucharafou, was sentenced to two months in jail.

Dani Alves Trains With PSG Teammates Hopeful Of Return From Injury

Alves

Dani Alves trained with his Paris St-Germain (PSG) teammates for the first time in almost six months on Wednesday, French media said on Wednesday.

The training was the first step in the Brazilian defender’s efforts to return from a serious knee injury.

Alves damaged the cruciate ligament in his right knee during the French Cup final against Les Herbiers on May 8 and has not played since.

This had led to his missing the 2018 FIFA World Cup for Brazil and pre-season training with his club.

The 35-year-old former FC Barcelona and Juventus FC player began light training earlier this month but club officials did not put a date on his return to first-team action, L’Equipe reported.

Alves joined PSG in July 2017 on a free transfer.

Atiku to Buhari: Selling National Assets To Fund Budget Fiscally Irresponsible

Buhari,Atiku

Lagos – Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has described as ‘fiscally irresponsible’ plans by the Muhammadu Buhari administration to sell national assets to fund the 2019 budget.

In a statement signed by Atiku Campaign Organisation on Wednesday in Abuja, Atiku said the action by the officials in the Buhari administration has the effect of ridiculing their principal.

He also said many of the assets the Buhari administration are planning to sell were built and established during the era of PDP and some are Atiku’s brain child.

“It will be recalled that on Monday the 29th of October, 2018, President Buhari accused past leaders of the People’s Democratic Party of not building public infrastructure, while delivering the 75th Anniversary Business lecture of the Island Club, Lagos.

“However, some of the assets listed for sale in the policy document of the Buhari Administration, were assets built or established under the PDP administrations that governed Nigeria between 1999 and 2007. Some of them were the brain child of the Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.

“Our question is this: If the PDP did not build infrastructure, as alleged by President Muhammadu Buhari, who built these assets that this administration wants to sell to fund their 2019 budget?

“As head of the Economic Management Committee during the Obasanjo administration, His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar, supervised the successful policy of privatisation. Privatisation works because it is a long-term strategy to engender efficiency in the economic system and expand the frontiers of private sector activity.

“Its primary goal is NOT to raise money for short term stabilization of what is clearly a fragile fiscal system.  The government’s planned sale of assets will cause long term pains and only provide short term gains.

“It makes no sense to sell public assets simply to fund a ‘business-as-usual’ budget that is essentially 70% recurrent. It is irresponsible to part with valuable assets simply to consume the proceeds (Like selling your family house to take a trip overseas on holiday).

“We knew that such a day would come, which is why His Excellency Atiku Abubakar has on various occasions made it clear that what is needed at this time is fundamentally fiscal restructuring to eliminate our addiction to oil revenues and strengthen our internal revenue generating capacity and a restructuring of the budget in favour of capital spending.

“For instance, last month, the PDP Presidential candidate questioned the wisdom behind the Federal Government sharing $322 million Abacha loot to certain Nigerians, only to obtain a $328 million loan from China, allegedly for ICT development.

“Rather than share that money, the Buhari administration ought to have put that $322 million in an escrow account to be used for funding the 2019 budget.

“Also, we recall that $43 million was found in an Ikoyi apartment. While we note the failed promise of the Buhari administration to come clean on who was behind those monies, we make bold to say that those funds should equally have been placed in escrow for use in funding the 2019 budget.

“It is a testament to our candidate that he helped build and develop national assets that are now so valuable that they can be sold. Creating more of such assets is at the core of his agenda to Get Nigeria Working Again.

“It is our hope that the Buhari government will accept this patriotic pro bono advise and retrace its step accordingly.�
