Fashola, Fayemi, Amaechi
Tough times await ministerial nominees in the Senate on Tuesday as the Peoples Democratic Party senators on Friday vowed not to lower their guard during the screening at the upper legislative chamber.
Saturday PUNCH reliably gathered that although some nominees had indirectly contacted the senators across party lines, their efforts had not yielded desired results.
Investigations also showed that the PDP senators might stop the screening, unless President Muhammadu Buhari presents all the 36 ministerial nominees, as against 21 he submitted on Tuesday.
It was learnt that the move by President Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress and the senators to reach out to the PDP senators was being coordinated by his Special Assistant on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang.

 Following the release of 21 names of ministerial nominees sent by President Muhammadu Buhari to Senate President Bukola Saraki last week, the social media has been abuzz with lots of speculations over who heads what ministry among the nominees who are expected be screened by the senate before the President announces portfolios assigned to each of them.

Let The Wixked Try By Hon. Chinedu Nkwonta

I was woken up late last night by a phone call from a close friend I have not heard from for a while. This guy got a text that had some news, some bad news about the Governor that had my name to it. I became curious to know what it was, crazy talk of the insane, the same desperate old group and their desperate moves, a cheap move to sow a seed of mistrust. After my explaining the motive behind their evil intensions, my friend saw the cheap joke in the entire rubbish. I had not heard from my man for some months previous, so at least, the frustrated miscreants got us talking again.

Epistle On Diezani Allison-Madueke By Michael Egbejumi-David

I have met the former Minister of Petroleum, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke before.  It was about three years ago in an Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston.  Unfortunately for me, former US president, George W Bush Jnr was also at the event.  Everyone – including my woman! - rushed off to have their picture taken with Bush.  Not me.  I kept my eyes on Diezani.  In the end she gave me her card and asked me to call on her whenever I was in Nigeria. Diezani Alison-Madueke
In Nigeria, I ferried myself to her imposing office after a few unreturned phone calls.  It was, ‘come today; come tomorrow’ until I ran out of steam and returned to the UK.  That was the last time I collected a card from any visiting Nigerian person.  But even at that, I’ve always had a soft spot for Mrs Alison-Madueke.

EffortsTo Stem Tide of Gun Violence In US Was Frustrated

Following the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College, a “smoldering” (as one commentator put it) President Obama gave a revealing speech — a clarification, a culmination, of much that had come before. “[W]hat’s become routine,” he said, “of course, is the response of those who oppose any kind of common-sense gun legislation. Right now, I can imagine the press releases being cranked out: ‘We need more guns,’ they’ll argue. . . . Does anybody really believe that?” “This is a political choice we make,” he claimed, “to allow this to happen every few months in America.”
The president’s frustration, after delivering a sad series of similar speeches, is understandable. But his argument is still indefensible.
