Shortly after receiving his certificate of return, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje announced that a key focus of the government in the coming administration would be to make sure that Kano State becomes an attractive destination for investment which will improve human capacity.

The governor-elect admitted that since Agriculture is already the mainstay of the people of the state, it becomes pertinent to encourage investments which will increase outputs and unlock pervasive economic growth.
“Our government cannot do this alone. We will also unveil extensive plans and incentives for partners and private investors to come build the businesses in Kano. If you want to setup innovative businesses or educational institutions, Kano is waiting to welcome you.”
Ganduje’s speech was heavily inclined towards education, inclusiveness and a sustainable future for the state and promises that the confidence vested in him by virtue of his re-election would not be let down.

The U.S. has revoked an entry visa for Fatou Bensouda, the International Criminal Court’s Chief Prosecutor.

The office of the prosecutor confirmed the information to dpa on Friday.

The U.S. wants to prevent the court from opening an investigation into alleged crimes by U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.

Bensouda can still travel to New York when she has to report to the United Nations Security Council, the spokesperson said, adding that the prosecutor’s work will continue despite the visa issue.

Bensouda had requested judicial approval for an official investigation, saying there is sufficient evidence of war crimes and proof that U.S. soldiers and CIA employees tortured or brutally handled prisoners in 2003 and 2004.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had already threatened to revoke entry visas for employees of the court.

The U.S. is not a signatory to the statute governing the International Criminal Court and has rejected the judicial body’s legitimacy for years.

The International Criminal Court prosecutes war crimes and crimes against humanity.

It is based on the Rome Statute, which entered into force in 2002.

A total of 122 countries signed the statue, including all EU member states.

Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Foreign Affairs, has described the action as disgraceful.

The embassy in its Twitter handle @UAEEmbassyNGR said:
“In the light of the press report published this morning (Thursday 4/4/2019) alleging that the United Arab Emirates has suspended issuing tourist Visa to Nigerian nationals, the United Arab Emirates Embassy in Abuja would like to announce these news are inaccurate and stresses the importance of sourcing news from its official channel”.

Many Nigerians visit UAE, especially Dubai, on business trips.

Sterling will rally three per cent if the Brexit gridlock is resolved and Britain looks likely to leave the European Union with a deal, but the currency will tumble five per cent if negotiations fail, a Reuters poll found.

The pound tanked after the June 2016 referendum result — as predicted by Reuters polls beforehand — and was trading at around 1.31 dollar on Thursday, far weaker than it was ahead of the vote.

Since the decision to leave, the pound has gyrated wildly on any Brexit news and largely shrugged off economic data, including recent private surveys which suggested Britain’s economy is likely to shrink in coming months.

On Tuesday, British Prime Minister Theresa May said she would seek another Brexit delay to agree an EU divorce deal with the opposition Labour Party leader, a last-ditch gambit to break an impasse over Britain’s departure.

Nearly three years since the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU in a shock referendum result, it is still unclear how, when or even if it will ever quit the European club it joined in 1973.

May secured a Withdrawal Agreement with the EU in November, but has failed to get the support of British lawmakers, leaving the country’s road out of the EU unclear.

If that road is smooth and Britain leaves with a deal, sterling will gain around three per cent, the April 1-4 poll predicted.

If the road is blocked and no deal is made, the pound will fall five per cent.
“Looser fiscal policy and a Brexit deal could lead to higher interest rates and push up the pound,” said Thomas Pugh at Capital Economics.
Another option is that Britain asks for a long delay to Brexit which would prolong the uncertainty.
“But if it looks like the road out will be extended, the pound will edge up around 1.75 per cent, according to the poll.
“Political clouds could be darkening the skies over the outlook for GBP for a long time yet,” said Jane Foley at Rabobank.
Foley was the most accurate forecaster for major currencies in Reuters’ polls last year.

The wider poll of nearly 70 foreign exchange strategists said the pound would be trading at 1.32 dollar in a month, 1.35 dollar in six months and have strengthened to 1.38 dollar in a year, indicating respondents do not expect a disorderly Brexit.

But highlighting the uncertainty, the 12-month forecast range was wide, going from 1.27 dollar to 1.56 dollar.

A Reuters’ poll of economists last month found the vast majority of them saying the two sides would settle eventually on a free-trade deal, as they have in all Reuters’ polls since late 2016.

That poll also predicted the Bank of England would raise borrowing costs towards the end of this year and then again in the latter half of 2020.

In contrast, the European Central Bank will not be raising interest rates until at least July next year, another Reuters’ poll predicted, but that differential won’t give the pound any support against the common currency.

Across all four touch points in the forecast horizon — one, three, six and 12 months — one euro was predicted to be worth 85.0 pence.

It was valued at around 85.3 pence on Thursday.

A New King is a song received by a young prophetic psalmist, Christopher Ikiebe Jnr (aka Ceejay) on the 22nd of December 2018. Ceejay’s mum came home from work shortly before his 6th birthday, he ran down the stairs telling his mum that he saw Jesus and angels but was not very coherent of his dream but said he received a song, as he started to sing the song, his mum brought out her phone to record the song. Ceejay sang the lyrics, sound and rhythm.

His mum was led by the Holy Spirit to take him to Holy Ghost studio owned by Testimony Joe to record the song. Even through the recording, the power of God was tangible as he sang this song. The second stanza of the song was written by his mum and Ceejay grasped it immediately and sang it so well. Ceejay has from childhood been a lover of music. He would sing even in other languages, songs he heard in his mum’s car.

In 2013, he travelled on his first missions at the age of 10 months to Kenya and attended all the crusades held in the nation. He is a worshipper that enjoys lifting up his hands to praise God. This song came after the monthly Wind of change night vigil held in December 2018, a minister noticed so much fire surrounding him as he played the conga drums and called other ministers to pray for him.

Shortly after he had the revelation that led to this song, A New King. Ceejay has on many occasion been used by God in dreams to tell his family what God is saying including averting danger or to increase prayers. He loves to dance, model and currently had clips of Ceejay’s dance moves on his YouTube channel.

Marketing with videos is definitely trending in the business world. In fact, more and more companies are choosing to incorporate it into their marketing strategies in 2019. Regardless, if you are an upstart, small business or a large corporation, video marketing will be a great addition to your existing plan. However, you must be creative when it comes to developing marketing videos. If you combine engaging marketing videos with an effective plan, the results will be astonishing. Below, you will discover three great video marketing strategies that should put you on a competitive edge with your biggest competitors.

Tell Your Story

Most consumers are really interested in how businesses get started. Look at Amazon for instance, which begin as a small business operating out of a garage. These are stories that people want to hear. With that said, it is crucial to utilize your marketing videos to tell your story. Make it where your audience feels the need to support your company through purchases.

Marketing videos that tell stories are on a more personal level than those that do not have a story tell. If you really want to draw more traffic to your website, you will need to incorporate this effective marketing strategy into your existing plan. To avoid any backlash, it is crucial to not make the story all about you. Instead, tell a story that demonstrates all the hard work that you put into building your business. Also, be sure to include your successes and future goals. Keep it short because most people will not spend more than a few minutes watching a marketing video.

Let Your Customers Tell Their Stories

Businesses how now become aware of how important customer reviews are for their brand. Most consumers will not even consider making an online purchase without reading customer reviews first. Another thing that consumers are looking for is interactions between customers and companies. Since you are planning to produce videos to draw brand awareness, it would not be a big deal to include one or more of your existing customers' stories in the videos. If you make this habit, you will notice an increase in traffic to your website and improvement in your conversion rate.

Include Tips And How-To Guides

Like customer reviews, how-to guides and tips can be effective marketing tools. When consumers want to learn more about a product they will instantly start conducting online research for the best available guides and strategies, such as these marketing guides from video app maker Swish. These videos will give them a better understanding of how your products work and if they work as guaranteed. Including tips is also a sure way to encourage consumers to buy from you.

The idea is to show consumers that you are an expert in your field. Besides that, it will show them that you know your products from top to bottom. In the meantime, you are also providing your existing customers with important information that are guaranteed to make their experiences better, if not great.


Once your videos are posted to social media, it is a good idea to monitor their progress. Answer viewers' questions and comments in a timely to show them that you are still involved.

A Lagos High Court, Igbosere yesterday ordered the arrest of a Nollywood actress and producer, Monalisa Chinda-Coker, over alleged tax evasion. The presiding judge, Justice Adedayo Akintoye renewed the bench warrant following the failure of the actress to appear in court for trial.

Lagos State government had charged her with failure to file annual tax returns and failure to pay income tax in respect of her company, Monalisa Code Productions. When the matter came up today, April 1, the defendant and her lawyer were not in court.

Hence, the Lagos State counsel, Mr Babatunde Sumonu, told the court that the bench warrant it earlier issued is yet to be effected. The judge, Justice Akintoye consequently held that the bench warrant should subsist. She adjourned the case until June 5 for further hearing.

The court had, on January 21, 2019, given the order for the actress arrest following an application made by the State Ministry of Justice.

The state submitted that the defendant repeatedly failed to honour court summons since 2017 when the charge was filed. According to the prosecution counsel, the defendant failed to file annual tax returns and pay income tax in respect of her company, to the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service (LIRS) for six years, stressing that Monalisa Code Productions carries out its business from Lekki in Lagos State.

The alleged offences, the prosecution said contravenes Section 94(1) of the Personal Income Tax Act 2004 (as amended) and Section 56 of the Lagos State Revenue Administrative Law of 2006.
