No provision for fuel subsidy in 2015 budget

The senate on Tuesday approved the 2015 budget of N4.493 trillion, which is less than the 2014 budget of N4.695 trillion by about N200 billion. ‎A copy of the 2015 budget seen by TheCable showed that there was no provision for fuel subsidy in it.
However, 21 billion was budgeted for the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P). This may mean an end to the controversial subsidy on petrol, and may also mean that government will be unable to pay oil marketers who may want to stop importing fuel, thereby causing scarcity of the product in the country.

Another Day, Another prophesy: Here's the new revelation for Buhari

Prophet Tibetan who predicted Buhari's victory has made more predictions. 
In a recent interview with Encomium magazine, he had this to say:
Buhari will not die in office. God prolonged the life of King Hezekiah in the Bible and this is Buhari’s portion. He won’t die in office. He has a job to do. There is no time to waste. Mr. President-elect should hit the ground running on his first day in office because he already has the template of what he wants to do to liberate Nigeria since 2003. Remember I told the world in my Prediction 2015 book that General Buhari is not chosen by God but by the people of Nigeria to liberate them and since he is the one the people want, God answered their prayer by giving him the leadership of the country. Buhari should run the affairs of Nigeria without fear or favor because he has a limited time to do this work.

Photos : Aridolf Hotel In Bayelsa Owned By Patience Jonathan

The Aridolf hotel in Yenagoa is an unlikely monument to kitsch on a reclaimed swamp in Nigeria’s oil-producing Niger delta. In the lobby, Louis XIV furniture is accompanied by bowls of plastic fruit, faux Dutch landscapes and a grotesquely gaudy chandelier. The hotel is redolent of the riches on display in a region that for half a century has generated the bulk of Nigeria’s wealth.

Only a decade and-a-half ago there was just one petrol pump in Bayelsa state, which produced a quarter of Nigeria’s 2m barrels per day of oil, and Yenagoa, the state capital, was a string of tin-roofed shacks. Resentment at the region’s under-development erupted in violence, with militants blowing up pipelines and kidnapping oil workers.

Giuliana Rancic Says Her Life Was Threatened After Making Zendaya Coleman Comments

Pass Or Play? Mariah Carey Disses Nick Cannon In New Song “Infinity”

Up until now, Mariah Carey has been very quiet about her separation
and pending divorce between she and her husband Nick Cannon. She’s
dodged paparazzi questions, kept her comments out of the tabloids and
didn’t have any visible tattoos removed.




Today, though, it looks like Mariah is ready to talk…or sing about the end of her union in a new song “Infinity.”




And while she’ll probably say publicly that it has nothing to do with
the father of her children, anyone who knows better can see that this
song is full of shade.
