  • The Guardian Editorial: Cancellation of multiple checks at airports The Guardian Editorial: Cancellation of multiple checks at airports
    The executive order issued recently by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, may have yielded fruits as the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), has since cancelled multiple checks at the Murtala Muhammed International Airports in Lagos. The development would give relief to passengers travelling through the airports, who hitherto, were subjected to multiple checks and levies by different agencies of government. Travelling through the Nigeria’s airports has often been a nightmare compared with airports in other climes, where passenger screening is…

    On behalf of my wife, family and government, I wish Muslims in Ghana and around the world Eid Mubarak. We thank Allah for seeing us through one month of fasting, prayer and devotion. I have no doubt that after nights of intense prayer and devotion, Allah would increase his favour upon our country and, insha Allah, by the next Ramadan our country would be better than it is today. The month of Ramadan has certainly drawn us closer to Allah…

  • Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko near £35m move to Chelsea - sources Sports Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko near £35m move to Chelsea - sources
    LONDON -- Chelsea are closing in on the £35 million signing of Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, sources have confirmed to ESPN FC. The Premier League champions identified Bakayoko, 22, as a priority target heading into this summer, and after weeks of negotiations both clubs now expect the deal to be completed once personal terms with the player are finalised. Bakayoko's arrival at Stamford Bridge will pave the way for Nemanja Matic's departure, with Jose Mourinho keen to bring the Serb to Manchester United and confident of completing a deal that could be worth up to £40 million, before taking his squad to the United States for preseason on July 9. Chelsea hope that Bakayoko -- who was rewarded for his role in Monaco's run to the Ligue 1 title and Champions League semifinals with a debut cap for France in March -- will be the first of several high-profile signings as they aim to give coach Antonio Conte a squad capable of competing on multiple fronts. The £35m fee agreed for Bakayoko will make him the most expensive midfielder in Chelsea's history, and the most lucrative signing since the club-record £50m acquisition of Fernando Torres from Liverpool in January 2011,…

  • Kenya: Uhuru, Ruto cite projects as they step up re-election bid Business and Economy Kenya: Uhuru, Ruto cite projects as they step up re-election bid
    President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto on Monday evening stepped up their bid for re-election by citing their achievements as they accused the Opposition of “copying” them. During a session preceding the official launch of the Jubilee manifesto, the two leaders argued that they had achieved a lot within a short period. “We should be happy with what we have achieved. We need to work harder for what lies ahead of us,” said Mr Kenyatta. “There are many things they said we can’t accomplish, which we have. I am sure if given time, there is more we can accomplish.” DEFENDING RECORD The President was defending his record, citing Huduma centres, free maternity healthcare, regional integration and improving relations with the outside world. “You were told that if you elect us, the world will reject us. Today, people from various countries want to visit Kenya. There is no country that has refused to accommodate a Kenyan president,” he argued, referring to the image issues surrounding their cases at the International Criminal Court.
