Zinedine Zidane should make a sensational comeback to Juventus as a sports director, according to Libertad Digital.

Zidane resigned as Real Madrid director after winning the Champions League title for the third year in a row.

The Frenchman would return to Serie A club 17 years after his departure as a player, in a world record of 77.5 million euros at Real Madrid.

After hanging his boots, Zidane worked on the floor in Santiago Bernabeu, before replacing Rafa Benitez in 2016.

Zidane would work alongside current sports director Fabio Paratici.

Paratici is currently working alongside Beppe Marotta, the managing director, and the two have worked together to bring Cristiano Ronaldo to Turin in a £ 88m contract.

If Zidane joined Juventus, he would go back to working with Ronaldo, the pair aiming for a fourth consecutive European crown.

 Eight people suspected of taking part in the kidnapping of Chibok's 276 schoolgirls in Borno State were exhibited by the Nigerian police in Maiduguri, the state capital.

The eight suspected Boko Haram terrorists, among the 22 protesters, were reportedly arrested by members of the Inspectorate General's Intelligence Response Team (IRT) in Borno, Adamawa and other nearby communities.



Abba Kyari, deputy police commissioner, confirmed that 22 alleged members of the militant group were arrested in different locations in the neighboring northeastern states of Yobe and Borno.

"Eight of them, including a commander, have confessed to being involved in the planning and abduction of Chibok girls," Kyari said.



"It was an intelligence-led operation and we have been monitoring them for about six months to a year."

The suspects reportedly orchestrated more than 50 suicide bombings in Maiduguri and Adamawa. They also launched several other attacks leading to the death of thousands of Nigerians.



Students at Government Girls High School in Chibok were captured by members of the terrorist group on April 14, 2014, an incident that sparked international outrage and the campaign to rescue schoolgirls.

So far, 112 girls have regained their freedom, mainly as a result of negotiations between the federal government and representatives of the terrorist group.

 In an act of pure bravery, this young man entered a burning Toyota Prado SUV, in a fire scene, and drove him away from further damage.

This event occurred earlier today in a building at Engineering Close, near Idowu Taylor Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.

The hell would have been caused by some people who used fueling a generator directly from a tank truck while the generator was still on.

Fortunately, there was no case of a human victim. Indeed, this young hero deserves some congratulations.

 A Facebook user identified Adeoye Sunday, took on the social networking platform to post some pictures of a cat who was spotted sitting on a bench with an open book between his paws in a hall of Obafemi Awolowo University , Ile Ife.

While students were reading at the Awo café, the cat joined them, took up space on an empty bench, and began reading a book to entertain the students.

The photos that were shared on an OAU Facebook group were captioned: "Even in the OAU animals, read, imagine a cat reading in the Awo café".


The administrative panel constituted by the Federal government to investigate the financial state of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund has uncovered about N62.555 billion fraud in the agency, saying the money was spent without proper accounting procedures being followed.
 
The panel finding is contained in a report submitted to government on Wednesday just as the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige said any member of staff indicted by the report will be made to face the law in accordance with extant laws and the provisions of the civil service rules.
 
Chairman of the Administrative Panel, Ishaya Awotu said while presenting the final report of the panel to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige that the financial book of the fund has not been fully audited since 2011.
 
The panel discovered that several unauthorized allowances were paid to the staff and management of the fund while over sea trips and training were carried out without the necessary approval from the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation as required by the civil service rules.
 
The Minister of Labour and Employment had, in February 2018 inaugurated the panel to investigate the finances of the fund following a damning report from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission indicting former Board members of the fund.
 
Some senior management staff of the fund was also sent on compulsory leave to allow the panel carry out its assignment without any interference.
 
Awotu said that the panel noticed weaknesses In the operation of the Fund, adding that even though the Fund had External Auditors for the period 2011 to 2015, the audited financial statements and the management letters for year 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 were submitted to the Management, but were not concluded reports.
 
He said “As at the time of forwarding this report, none of the years audited accounts has been concluded while the audit reports remained unsigned. The basis for Management’s re-appointment of the External Auditors for the auditing of 2015 Accounts could not be ascertained;

“The Fund does not have Financial Operational Manual to guide in its financial activities while compliance with the provisions of the Financial Regulations in carrying out their financial transactions was very weak;

“Bank reconciliation of most of the bank accounts of the Fund was not carried out. Without the reconciliation of the bank statements, irregular payments and fraud committed on the accounts cannot be detected. Furthermore, financial statements prepared from unreconclied accounts cannot be reliable. Non-reconciliation of bank accounts violates section 716 of the Financial Regulations;

“The internal Audit function of the Fund was ineffective. The Panel observed that for the period 2013 to 2017, the internal Audit Department did not audit the cashbooks of the various bank accounts at the Headquarters of the Fund, books and records of Investments and Treasury Department, Procurement Processes, Registration of Employers and payment of contributions by the Employers, Enforcement and Inspection activities, Fixed Assets etc. The lack of effective auditing of the Fund’s accounts and records violates section 1701 of the Financial Regulations;

“It was observed that the Fund was operating with incomplete books of accounts. Several bank statements of the various bank accounts, cashbooks, etc were not submitted for audit examination and sighting. Financial statements (accounts) produced from such accounting system cannot be reliable;

“There were several transfers of funds in between bank accounts without authorization and approvals. The sum of N15,737,757,697.91 (Fifteen Billion, Seven Hundred and Thirty Seven Million, Seven Hundred and Fifty Seven Thousand, Six Hundred and Ninety Seven Naira, Ninety One Kobo) was transferred from one account to another. Evidences to show the approvals and payment vouchers authorizing the transfers were not presented to the Panel;

“The Panel observed that the sum of N2,990,184,262.77 was expended on computerization and other related lCT equipment. Despite this expenditure, not (much was achieved on computerization of the Fund defeating the purpose of the expenditure;

“It was also observed that Oversea Tours and Trainings were undertaken by the Fund without the approval of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation;

“Contrary to the provisions of Financial Regulation 402 the Fund does not maintain Expenditure Vote Control Books required for the monitoring and control of the various sub-heads. None maintenance of the vote-books made it impossible for the Fund to control extra budgetary spending.

“The sum of N2,650,731,225.93 (Two Billion, Six Hundred and Fifty Million, Seven Hundred and Thirty One Thousand, Two Hundred and Twenty Five Naira, Ninety Three Kobo) deducted from various payments in respect of Withholding Tax, Pay-As-You-Earn (PAVE), Value Added Tax, Pension and National Housing Fund were no remitted to the relevant Authorities.

“Irregular allowances totaling N5, 744,968,834.13 were paid to Staff and Management of the Fund. These allowances were paid without the approval of National Salary, incomes and Wages Commission for allowances being paid to its staff and management.

“Some of the allowances such as Management Staff Allowance, Staff Education Allowance. DSTV Subscription Allowance, Dressing Allowance, Generator and Motor Vehicle Fueling Allowance paid to staff and management were not provided for in the Condition of Service of the Fund.

“Payment vouchers in the sum of N27,056,598,053.92 (Twenty Seven Billion, Fifty Six Million, Five Hundred and Ninety Eight Thousand, Fifty Three Naira, Ninety Two Kobo) were not presented to the Panel for audit examination and sighting;

“Payment vouchers in the sum of N8,376,083,789.72 (Eight Billion, Three Hundred and Seventy Six Million, Eighty Three Thousand, Seven Hundred and Eighty Nine Naira, Seventy Two Kobo) were without adequate supporting documents”
 
The panel recommend that the Management of the Fund should without further delay conclude the External Auditors’ Reports for the period 2011 to 2015, while another set of External Auditors should be appointed with immediate effect to audit the accounts of 2016 and 2017 financial years as audited accounts for 2017 financial year ought to have been submitted on 30th May, 2018 in accordance with the Financial Regulations.
 
The panel also said that NSITF should carry out full reconciliation of assets acquired and recorded in the cashbooks against the Fixed Assets Register, saying “Schedules to the Fixed Assets should be updated to correspond with fixed assets balances in the general ledger. Henceforth, the Fund should endeavor to update their Fixed Assets Register and schedules as the assets are acquired .

“The Fund should ensure that Accounting Operational Manual is prepared to guide in carrying out its financial activities. In the interim (before the Accounting Operational Manual is put in place), the Fund should be guided by the relevant sections of the Financial Regulations;

“The Staff Condition of Service should be reviewed, with immediate effect, to correct lapses contained therein. There is also the need to review the investment Policy Document of the Fund;

“A Professional Firm of Accountants should be engaged to carry out in-depth examination of transfers in-between the accounts to ensure that the transfers of N15, 37,757,697.91 (Fifteen Billion, Seven Hundred and Thirty Seven Million, Seven Hundred and Fifty Seven Thousand, Six Hundred and Ninety Seven Nalra, Ninety One Kobe) were properly accounted for.

“The Firm should also canyout the bank reconciliation of the accounts of the Fund from its inception to date to assure that there are no financial losses resulting from the non-reconciliation of the accounts;

“The Fund should be asked to produce the payment vouchers in the sum of N27,056,598,053.92 (Twenty Seven Billion, Fifty Six Million, Five hundred and Ninety Eight Thousand, Fifty Three Naira, Ninety Two Kobe) that were not presented to the Panel for audit examination and sighting;

“The Fund should also produce the relevant supporting documents. For the various payment vouchers with total monetary value of N8,376,083,789.72 (Eight Billion, Three Hundred and Seventy Six Million, Eighty Three Thousand. Seven Hundred and Eighty Nine Naira, Seventy Two Kobe) to substantiate the payments.

“The Staff should be trained on the utilization of the acquired it. Equipment to add value to service delivery. Henceforth, all approvals for Overseas Tours and Trainings should be obtained from the Secretary to the Government of the Federation in line with extant circulars before they are undertaken.

“The Fund should prepare a financial plan on how they intend to remit the N2, 650,731,225.93 deducted from Staff salaries to various Authorities to avoid sanctions that may lead to going concern (non continuity) of the Fund.”
 
Receiving the report, Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige assured that the report of the panel will be implemented fully and the lapses identified corrected.
 
He said “Those findings especially about over sea trips which are unauthorized will be dealt with because they are actions that breached public service rules. It is not true that parastatals are exempted from public service rules. This report will be fully implemented and areas of lapses corrected. So many government organizations have gone under because of situations like this.”

He said further that “Following the whistle blowing policy of this administration, the EFCC moved into the place and did some forensic auditing of the accounts of the agency.

“After reading the EFCC report, we felt it was necessary to set up this administrative panel to find out why the internal audit mechanism broke down in such a way that the N62 billion contributed cannot be seen.

“No good investment, no bank reserve and failing to carry out their responsibilities to their workers to the extent that the PAYE deducted, the pensions, and the National Housing Funds deducted were not remitted to the appropriate authority and the money is no where to be seen in the account. These are very strong financial misapplication and misappropriation.

“You have helped us to create a new NSITF that will be financial ok. It was I lieu of this that the Ministry did not want to be stampeded to put in place a new Board especially because the EFCC report indicted some members of the former board.

“Those indicted included those nominated by the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Nigeria Employers Consultative Association. So. We were not in a hurry because we needed to give the new board a new lease of life because you don’t put new wine in old wine skin.

“I am very happy because this is a water shed in the history of NSITF and I want to assure you that we are taking notes of the financial infractions mentioned here and we are also in position of the schedule that will help us look at what has been done, the road map you have been drawn will be implemented to the later.”
 
-Culled from The Nation

Barely a week after the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, kickstarted a campaign against the proliferation of fake news, a top member of the ruling party has been caught posting false information on his social media page.
 
Decrying the spread and the imminent danger posed by the spread of fake news and hate speeches, last Friday, Mr. Mohammed said that fake news not only threatens the peace and security but was also a threat to the corporate existence of the country.
 
“In a country like Nigeria which is multi-ethnic and religious, fake news and hate speech is time bomb.

“We also launched the campaign to sensitise Nigerians that each and every one of us can play a role in combating the rising level of fake news.

“Fake news is a global issue, it is not just a Nigerian issue but we are more concerned about Nigeria because of the potential it has to our corporate existence,” Mr Mohammed said.
 
But on Tuesday, the publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos, Joe Igbokwe posted a clear misinformation to thousands of his followers on his Facebook wall.
 
Accompanied with a picture, which was apparently taken inside Aso Presidential Villa of a police officer walking past President Muhammadu Buhari, who was sitting behind a desk in the background, Mr Igbokwe posted:

“Please meet ACP Obinna Chukwuka, the tear rubber Chief Security Officer to Mr President,” Mr Igbokwe wrote. Tear rubber in local parlance means ‘new’.
 
 
The post was apparently used to depict the president, who has come under verbal attacks over the perceived lopsidedness of his political appointments, as a detribalised leader.
 
PREMIUM Times investigation revealed that the claim made in the post was false as the president is yet to replace his Chief Security Officer, Bashir Abubakar.
 
Mr Abubakar was appointed as the president’s CSO in July 2015 after his predecessor, Abdulrahman Mani, was sacked.
 
Before his appointment the President CSO, Mr Abubakar wss an assistant director of the secret police, Department for State Security (DSS) in Bayelsa State.
 
When contacted, Mr Abubakar said it was not true that he had been replaced. He, however, declined further comment, stating that he was busy at the time.
 
As at Wednesday afternoon, the post had attracted over 140 likes and had been shared over 30 times.
 
The president’s Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, did not return calls made to his mobile phone and has not responded to an sms sent to him for comment.
 
“Is it false?”
When reached for comments Mr Igbokwe said the post did not originate from him adding that he merely copied it “because it was trending”.
 
“If you look at it you will see that it was copied. The thing has been trending. I copied it from… you know sometimes you copy from a reliable source. It didn’t come from me. It was from a particular source I can trust,” he said during a telephone interview.
 
But when asked if he confirmed whether the news was true before posting, a bemused Mr Igbokwe replied: “No o. No o, because I said I trust those people. I have my friends on Facebook. Is it false? Is it false? If is false. I have pulled down so many stories that are false.”
 
 
He added that he did not confirm the veracity of the post because nobody has flagged it as fake.
 
“Because I have seen it trending and nobody has said it was fake news, I have seen some of my reliable partners post it that is why I shared it.”
 
Penchant for posting controversies?
Mr Igbokwe has over 21,000 followers on Facebook and many of his posts attract hundreds of comments, shares and likes. He has a penchant for posting controversial items on Facebook.
 
On July 8, soon after PREMIUM TIMES’ story revealing that the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun forged her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) exemption certificate, Mr Igbokwe posted a photoshopped image of Ms. Adeosun in a corps member fatigue with the tag: “Wailers will you keep quiet."
 
“Wailers” is a slur used by supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari to describe his critics. The term was popularised by Femi Adesina, Mr Buhari’s top media aide.

Liverpool is getting closer to Alisson's signing after agreeing a £ 66m ($ 86m) fee with Roma for the Brazilian goalkeeper, Goal said.

The Reds have had intensive talks with the Serie A club this week, and are now allowed to talk to the player about a move to Anfield.

The agreement would make the 25-year-old the most expensive goalkeeper in history, and Jurgen Klopp is looking to strengthen a position that was a problem well before Loris Karius' high-profile mistakes in the Champions League final in May.

Alisson, understandably, is open to the idea of ​​a move to Merseyside, but Liverpool could face competition from Chelsea, who seems to want to lose his own goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, to Real Madrid.

Liverpool, however, are increasingly confident they can win the race, which would mean they have broken the world transfer record for goalkeepers and defensemen in the last seven months.

The Reds have already added Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri to their team in 2018, and the addition of Alisson, identified by the club's recruiting team as their best target last season, would be considered a huge boost from the new Premier League campaign.

Liverpool will fly to the United States for a three-game tour Saturday, although Alisson should not return to training before after all.

Klopp had designated Alisson as his favorite target, with the Reds' boss aware that no Karius, Simon Mignolet or Danny Ward had managed to clinch first place at Anfield.

Karius' mistakes in the Champions League final against Madrid in Kiev, and doubts about the lasting effect they will have on his confidence, have re-energized Liverpool's efforts to recruit Alisson.

Ward is said to impress Klopp in training, but it now seems unlikely that he will have a lasting chance of claiming to be the first choice as the deal for Alisson gets closer.

Roma had been keen to avoid a repeat of last summer when they sold Mohamed Salah to Liverpool at what seems now a ridiculously low price and made it clear they are not ready for the same thing with Alisson.

However, Liverpool's bid has now met Roma's assessment, leaving the Serie A club to step up their search for a replacement.

Alphonse Areola, from Paris Saint-Germain, seems to be on their radar, while AC Milan No. 1, Gianluigi Donnarumma, is well known.

 She is 43 years old and is more attractive to human eyes than many of her younger colleagues with her luscious skin that could kill the glow of gold.

She recently released a beautiful dress and a perfect smile that has been described as the best makeup that a woman could wear. Other photos of her in a red jumpsuit will make any critical thinker think why she is still single.

Rita Uchenna Nkem Dominic Nwaturuocha won the Africa Movie Academy Award for best actress in a leading role.

Paul Pogba wants to return to Juventus after being frustrated by life in Manchester United, according to Tuttosport.

The deal would make 25 years the most expensive goalkeeper in history.
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is closer to Real Madrid for € 35m (£ 31m / $ 41m), reports Marca.

The Belgian number one has long been linked to a return to Spain to be with his family, after being loaned three seasons at Atletico Madrid between 2011 and 2014.

Only one year from his contract, the Blues will be forced to sell the 26-year-old player at a relatively low rate rather than losing him for free next summer.

Arsenal offered Chelsea the opportunity to sign again goalkeeper Petr Cech, according to the Daily Mail.

Cech spent 11 seasons with Chelsea before switching to the Gunners, who are looking to raise money for additional purchases this summer.

The Blues expect to lose Thibaut Courtois this summer, and have also identified Kasper Schmeichel and Gianluigi Donnarumma as possible substitutes.

The President Muhamamdu Buhari-led Federal Government has today in London, unveiled the name and logo of a new National Carrier, known as Nigeria Air.
 
The Minister of State for Aviation, Hadi Sirika, who disclosed the name and logo at the Farnborough International Airshow in London during the unveiling, said the National Carrier will be private sector driven and not a “social service”.
 
“This will be a National Carrier that is Private sector-led and driven.
 
“It is a business, not a social service. The government will not be involved in running it or deciding who runs it. The investors will have full responsibility for this”.
 
 
He added that the Federal Government will not own more than 5% (maximum) of the new National Carrier.
 
The Minister had in January disclosed that the National Carrier will be unveiled this year, although it could not be established as earlier said in 2017.
 
He has now reaffirmed the FG’s commitment to ensuring that the nation has a functional airline before the year ends.
 
On job creation, the minister said the establishment of the airline will create economic and job opportunities.

“We want to use this new private-sector-led airline to make a statement that, ‘Yes, Nigeria can do it!’ and we also want to promote our cultures and traditions. It will also create economic opportunities and jobs”.
 
The minister also noted that negotiations are ongoing concerning the aircraft for the airline which will be announced soon.
 
“We’ve been talking to Airbus and Boeing (and they’re present at this event) regarding the aircraft for #NigeriaAir, and we will be making announcements very soon. We are currently negotiating”.
 
Nigeria’s first national carrier was established in 1958 and stopped operations in 2003 with more than 30 aircraft on its fleet in the 1980s.

A magistrate court in Isabo, Abeokuta, capital of Ogun State, ordered the detention of Ms Mercy Duru in prison.

The woman was arrested yesterday on three counts of attempted murder, impersonating a doctor and obtaining false pretenses.

She will remain in prison until the next adjournment date of October 5, 2018.

The charge bearing the reference number MA / 512c / 2018 reads as follows: "Madam Mercy Duru, between the 23rd of June 2018 and the 1st of July 2018, at around 5 pm, in the Oluwo area, Adigbe, Abeokuta, in the Abeokuta Magisterial, tried to illegally kill a Mr. Olawale Hassan by injecting him with drugs Rocephine and Zoladex, which you claim to be able to cure heart disease, which almost cost him his life and thus commit a crime contrary and punishable under Article 320 of the Criminal Law of Ogun State, Nigeria, 2006.

"That you, Mrs. Mercy Duru, on the same date, time and place, in the aforementioned Magistral District, did so with the intention of defrauding a Mr. Olawale Hassan, falsely presenting you as a doctor, working at the Federal Medical Center , Abeokuta and so committed an offense to the contrary and punishable under Section 484 of the Criminal Law of Ogun State, Nigeria 2006.

"That you, Mrs. Mercy Duru, on the same date, time and place, in the aforementioned Magistral District, made by false pretense and intent to defraud, obtained the sum of # 400,000 from a Mr. Olawale Hassan under the pretext that you would use the money to buy medicine for him, that you have neither bought nor refunded the money and committed an offense to the contrary and punishable under Article 419 of the Criminal Law of Ogun State, Nigeria 2006 ".

After reading the accusations, which she claimed to understand, her plea was not made.

The Presiding Judge of the Court 1, A. I. Adelaja (Ms), ordered that she be remanded in custody, while the case was adjourned until 5 October 2018.

 
The outgoing French Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Denys Gauer, has identified impunity and injustice as the factors driving the killings and bloodshed in Plateau, Benue, Kaduna and other parts of the country.
 
The envoy attributed the killings to struggle for land, noting that foreigners were not involved in the bloodshed in the Middle Belt region.
 
Addressing journalists in commemoration of the 2018 French National Day in Abuja on Saturday, the diplomat who would be rounding off his tour of duty at the end of the month, said Nigerians deserved to enjoy effective security and better governance than the government was currently providing.
 
He admonished the Federal Government to punish those behind the killings. The envoy advised the government to develop agriculture and animal husbandry to address the crisis.
 
“The reason for the killings is demography; some people are fighting for land, so there must be direct policy to develop agriculture and animal husbandry. I think impunity is encouraging the killings and those responsible must be punished. I don’t believe foreigners are involved in the killings,” he said in response to a question about the claims by the Federal Government that Libyan mercenaries were responsible for the bloodshed.
 
The envoy added, “The second is justice. When there is that kind of killing, there must be proper prosecution and perpetrators must be properly sentenced. If that does not happen, then, it cannot end.”
 
Gauer noted that foreign investors and partners would not be willing to invest in the affected areas on account of the security challenges there.
 
According to the diplomat, Nigeria has recorded great progress against Boko Haram, but the sect, he said, had not been eliminated.
 
He explained that the security forces needed to maintain their offensive against the insurgents so that the displaced persons could return to their communities.
 
The envoy said that there was a need for the relationship between the two countries to be expanded to involve exchange of culture, renewable energy, agriculture and smart cities. He said France would inaugurate the “Season of African Culture” in 2020 as part of strategies to promote African culture.
 
The departing diplomat stated that he enjoyed Nigeria, adding that he had visited Sokoto, Kano, Enugu, Abeokuta, Osogbo, Lagos and other cities, but added that insecurity and bad roads were a challenge. Meanwhile, the Muslim Rights Concern has advised Nigerians to stop blaming President Muhammadu Buhari for killings around the country.
 
The group gave the advice in a statement on Monday by MURIC’s Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, and made available to newsmen in Ibadan. Akintola blamed politicians, tribal bigots and a section of the media on the spread of wrong information about killings around the country.
 
“Nigerian lawmakers should take the lion’s share of the blame, followed by the citizens and the media. They should all accept their culpability in this peculiar mess instead of blaming the executive since the latter has done what is humanly possible within the law,’’ Akintola said.
 
He said it was unfair to blame Buhari for Nigeria’s inability to stop killings because security was a collective responsibility, particularly the different arms of government.
 
MURIC urged Nigerians to adopt a holistic approach to killings occurring in the country.
 
“Farmer-herder clashes are common everywhere, particularly in West Africa and Nigeria is not an isolated case but we are behaving as if Nigeria is an island.

“Take Ghana as an example. Earlier this year, cattle rustlers invaded farmlands in Ashanti, Volta, Brong Ahafo and the Eastern regions leading to killings and the destruction of farms.

“But Ghanaians did not crucify their president because of the clashes but solve the problem by establishing their first cattle ranch last week at Afram Plains in the eastern region. It plans to establish more in the Volta and Ashanti regions.

“It is time to face realities. We must borrow a leaf from Ghana. That country is as multi-religious and multi-cultural as Nigeria,’’ Akintola said.
 
He said herders and farmers clashes could be avoided if Nigeria objectively considered the recommendation for the establishment of ranches.
 
Akintola said Ghanaian President Akufo-Addo had in March expressed his administration’s intention to establish cattle ranches to curb the menace of herders.
 
“He has succeeded in doing that because Ghanaians did not look at their tribe or religion. They considered what will benefit them,’’ Akintola said.
