7 Books Every Leader Should Read, According To A Harvard Business School Professor

Reading lots of books
Max Bazerman, a business psychology professor at Harvard Business School and the author of the best book on general decision making that I’ve ever read, "Judgment in Managerial Decision Making," came out with 7 book recommendations.
I hadn’t heard of two of these, which I picked up.
I think we’ve all heard of this one. Bazerman says:
The development of decision research is the most pronounced influence of the social sciences on professional education and societal change that we have witness in the last half century. Kahneman is the greatest social scientist of our time, and" Thinking, Fast and Slow" provides an integrated history of the fields of behavioral decision research and behavioral economics, the role of our two different systems for processing information (System 1 vs. System 2), and the wonderful story of Kahneman’s relationship with Amos Tversky (Tversky would have shared Kahneman’s Nobel Prize had he not passed away at an early age).

This is contained in a statement issued by Mr Olisa Metuh, the National Publicity Secretary of PDP on Thursday in Abuja.

“When we said that the All Progressive Congress (APC), as it is presently constituted aids and abets terror in Nigeria by omission and commission, some Nigerians doubted us.

The couple, who conceived when the then elementary schoolgirl was aged just 11, gave birth to a healthy baby daughter weighing 7-pounds-4 last weekend.
Friends say the pair are "totally in love," are planning to bring up the infant together and eventually want to get married.

"The baby's mum and dad have been in a relationship for more than a year, so it isn't a fleeting romance. They intend to stick together and bring their daughter up together," he added.

Am Running In 2015 Presidential Election– TINUBU

Former Governor of Lagos State and a leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has declared that nobody can stop his ambition in 2015 if he declares for the presidency or any public office.

Speaking yesterday at the APC secretariat in Lagos, the former governor said APC will feature the best candidate in 2015 election, whether the person is a Christian or Muslim. Tinubu later told the party members, who asked him about his decision on the 2015 presidency, “I will let you know my decision.”

Military Retracts Earlier Statement About Rescue Of Girls Abducted From Secondary School In Chibok

Nigeria’s armed forces have formally issued a retraction to the unfolding story of the kidnapping of more than 100 female students in the country’s northeast Monday.

The statement, issued by Chris Olukolade, a Major General who also serves as Coordinator, and the Director of Defense Information, centers on a discrepancy of fact, and concerns a mis-quote from the School Principal whose students were abducted in the Monday siege. In an attempt to set the record straight, Olukolade’s statement reads as follows:

The controversy that has been generated around the efforts at securing the lives of the abducted students of Government Girls’ Secondary School, Chibok is unfortunate. The ongoing frantic efforts of security forces along with vigilante groups including hunters working to locate and free the abducted students have continued to be keenly monitored at the Operation Centre of the Defense and Army Headquarters as regular progress reports are being received from troops on the ground.

Caution To Olisa Metuh On His Unguarded Utterances

Now that the notorious White Widow, Samantha Lewthwaite, has been linked (whether confirmed or yet to be confirmed) to the dastardly bomb blast at Abuja, Nigerians should accept that the hen has finally come home to roost. Our worst nightmare is virtually at our doorstep. Terror has found a foothold in Nigeria. Teeth are still gnashing while tears are yet to dry. Nigeria is a nation at war, a nation in mourning. Peace has taken flight.

Nigerians are still continuing to express their shock and disgust at the unending cycle of violence that has now consumed the country. Losses are still being counted. The reality of a severe state of insecurity in which we all dwell stares blankly at us all in the face. However, of significance are four events which occurred just after this heinous crime to humanity. These are:

1.    Flags are yet to be flown at half-mast as Nigeria does not perceive this particular bomb blast (one in a series of unending tragedies) as particularly significant, painful or sorrowful.

2.    In the same perspective, President Goodluck Jonathan after the conceited mien and piety displayed at Nyanya in the course of his condolence visit, went on a whirlwind of politicking the following day. The bomb blast occurred on Monday 14th April whilst the President of the affected nation was on a felicitation visit to mark the centenary birthday of a traditional ruler (the Olubadan of Ibadan) on Tuesday 15th April 2014.

The EFCC said Bappa’s trouble began after a petition by one Yusra Babakusa, a female student of the Bayero University, Kano.

Messi mentally fatigued, says former Barca coach

Lionel Messi
Former Barcelona head coach Cesar Luis Menotti believes that Lionel Messi is suffering from mental fatigue following a poor run of form.
Messi has faced criticism for a lacklustre showing in Barca’s UEFA Champions League exit to La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid at the quarter-final stage last week.
The Argentina international also failed to reach his usual high standards as Barcelona crashed to a 1-0 defeat at Granada on Saturday – a result that severely hinders their hopes of retaining the Spanish title.
Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta leapt to Messi’s defence earlier this week, insisting that all is well with the 26-year-old despite his slump in form.

FRCN Lacks The Power To Probe Me, Sanusi Insists

Deposed Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Sanusi Lamido on Thursday maintained that the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (FRCN) lacks the statutory powers to investigate him.
In his originating summons on a suit he filed against FRCN and its executive secretary at a Federal High Court in Lagos, Sanusi accused the council of bias in its investigations of him, and therefore urged the court to halt the process.
As contained in the suit — filed by his Senior Advocate of Nigeria-lawyers, Professor Yemi Osibajo, Dr Kanyinsola Ajayi and Kola Awodehin — Sanusi requested the court to declare that by constituting itself into investigating body in the manner contained in newspaper advertorials of 24 March 2014, FRCN acted ultra vires.

UPDATE: APC Governors Shun Security Meeting Called By President Jonathan

All governors under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) were conspicuously absent when the meeting convened by President Goodluck Jonathan started by 2.00pm at the First Lady Conference Room in the State House, Abuja, on Thursday.

Jonathan had on Wednesday summoned all governors and National Security Council to a meeting over rising security challenges in the country.
After the President met the Service Chiefs and the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar in his office earlier, they all moved to the First Lady Conference room where governors were already seated.

Again, PDP accuses APC of terrorist connections

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh
The Peoples Democratic Party has reiterated its allegations that the opposition All Progressives Congress is responsible for the escalation of terrorist activities in Nigeria.
This was contained in a statement by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, on Tuesday.
The party explained that inflammatory statements made by the leaders of the APC sparked off the hatred against the President Goodluck Jonathan-led PDP administration.
He urged Nigerians to stand up and resist those he called unpatriotic elements, whose actions and utterances had continued to fuel insurgency in the country.
According to Metuh, inflammatory utterances by certain “key politicians” against the emergence of President Goodluck Jonathan sparked off hatred against the administration by their followers, while attracting impudent insurgents, who started demanding the ouster of the President with threats to cripple the system through acts of terrorism.
The statement partly read, “When the PDP, said that the APC is responsible for the spate of terror in Nigeria, many had an emotional response, but it is now time to dispassionately focus on the facts in order to stop the carnage on innocent Nigerians.

Soldiers, hunters comb bushes for abducted girls

Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh
Soldiers, policemen, local vigilantes, hunters and volunteers combed the bushes on Wednesday in search of over 100 schoolgirls abducted on Monday by Boko Haram Islamists in Chibok, Borno State.
The rescue teams, aided by surveillance helicopters, were said to have moved deeper into the vast forest that extends into neighbouring Cameroon and other states in the North-East.
A senator representing Borno South in the National Assembly, Ali Ndume, made this known to the Cable News Network just as President Goodluck Jonathan summoned military chiefs and governors to emergency security meetings on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Before the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, made this known, the Federal Government had said it was not yet in possession of full details of the abduction of the girls from   their hostel in the Government Girls’ Secondary School, Chibok.

B’Haram link: Apologise or face litigation, Buhari tells PDP

Former Head of State, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd),
A former head of state and a chief of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Peoples Democratic Party, to retract its wild accusation linking him with the Boko Haram terrorist acts, tender an unreserved public apology to him or face a legal action.
In a statement personally signed in Kaduna on Thursday Buhari said, “I cannot sit back and allow my image, and that of my political party be smeared by falsehood in the name of politics.”
He said the widely publicised and very serious allegations made against him by the PDP and its spokesman, Olisa Metuh, to the effect that his utterances were responsible for the current state of insecurity and terrorism bedeviling Nigeria, were absolutely without basis.
The former Head of State said, ”To support his claim, Metuh engaged in twisted logic and outright distortion – which he called facts – in which he said that I, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, beckoned on my ‘supporters to go on lynching spree’ should I lose the 2011 presidential election, as a result of which ‘an unprecedented violence broke out claiming the lives of hundreds of innocent people’.

The International Boxing Union (IBU) is demanding $1 million (N162 million) sanctioning fees to be paid latest April 30 or Nigeria will lose the hosting right.
Agwai, however, said Nigerians should see the Guinness Book of World Record fight as a national project and help the boxer to source for the money.
“If we can produce in every geo-political zone one Bash Ali, that means we are going to get at least six world champions.

EFCC recovers N4.3b of N422b subsidy fraud

More than three years after the subsidy fraud that deprived Nigerians of over N422 billion of tax payers money, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC said yesterday that it had been able to recover a paltry N4.3 billion from the oil dealers.
Chairman of the commission, Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde, announced the figure when officials of the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency, PPPRA, visited him in his office.
The PPPRA officials were led by their Executive Secretary, Mr. Farouk Ahmed, who sought greater collaboration with the anti-graft agency for better performance of their duties.
Lamorde said the recovery of the amount from the oil firms indicted in the subsidy scam was made possible by the synergy between the EFCC and the PPPRA and called for more teamwork to retrieve more from the firms.
