Alhaji Sanusi Lamidi Sanusi, the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, has urged the federal government to invest in education. This as a means will encourage teachers to be at their best, adding that teachers were once highly respected in the society in the past.
In his interview with the NAN (News Agency of Nigeria), he said:
“What is happening now is that we have people who have moved into authority and who do not value education as the society is so materialistic.
“It is all about money now and teachers are looked down upon because they don’t have money.
“Most of these teachers have the option to do other courses but they chose to educate our children and contribute to our society.
“So, we need to look at our value system and go back to our traditional value system of respecting teachers and if we treat them with respect, we will get a lot from them,’’ he added…
“Fashion Is Pain” Toyin Abraham Admits After Struggling To Breathe In Red Corset Dress
Actress Toyin Abraham has finally admitted that wearing a corset dress was a struggle for her, after facing heavy online mocking for her choice of outfit at the movie premiere of her senior colleague, Funke Akindele, on Wednesday, September 27th.
In a captured video, Toyin Abraham was seen struggling to breathe while posing for the camera and interacting with colleagues, due to the tight-fitting nature of the corset dress.
A corset is a “stiff supporting so constricting undergarment for the waist, worn chiefly by women to shape the figure and hide their big tummy.
It is a support garment commonly worn to hold and train the torso into a desired shape, traditionally a smaller waist or larger bottom, for aesthetic or medical purposes (either for the duration of wearing it or with a more lasting effect), or to support the breasts.
Sadly after Toyin Abraham rocked her corset dress, she struggled to breathe in it.
After receiving mockery online and calls for her to fire her stylist, Toyin Abraham responded by sharing new photos of herself along with hilarious hashtags that read “I can’t breathe well, you all say Fashion is pain, this corset wants to kill me.”
Congratulating Funke Akindele on the movie premiere, Toyin Abraham said, “Big congratulations to Aunty Funke Akindele, Prime Video, and the entire cast and crew on the premiere of the series, SHE MUST BE OBEYED.
Your film was not only entertaining but also educative and funny – a perfect combination. I can’t wait to watch it on Prime Video starting tomorrow, September 29th.”

Edo2024: Osunbor Begs Oba Of Benin For Another Chance Over Gubernatorial Bid
A former governor of Edo State, Prof. Oserheimen Osunbor has disclosed his interest in running for the upcoming 2024 governorship election.
Osunbor revealed his intention during a visit to the Oba of Benin, His Royal Majesty, Omo N’Oba N’Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare 11, in his palace in Benin City on Tuesday evening.
He pleaded with the monarch to support his endeavour.
Osunbor stated that he was a governor of the state for a short period of time and he desired to come back and complete his mission.
He disclosed that he is imbued with traits of excellence and that his slogan while campaigning to govern the state in 2007 was ‘Edo for Excellence’.
According to him, “I know it is in the interest of Your Royal Majesty that whoever is coming to govern the state should be somebody who has the interest of the state and must be prepared to do what is required to be able to elevate Edo State to an enviable level.”
Going further into his background, he disclosed that he scored a first class in his Law programme the first Nigerian to achieve that feat at the University of Nigeria.
“I proceeded to the Law School and emerged as the best student in the Nigeria Bar examination in 1976. Without doing a Masters, I proceeded to do a Ph.D and in three years completed my Ph.D and started lecturing. In just eight years I applied for a position of Professor and I was appointed a Professor with just eight years teaching experience. This is very rare,” Osunbor said.
Receiving Professor Osunbor and his entourage of All Progressives Congress (APC) bigwigs, Omo N’Oba stated that the capability of the ex-governor was never in doubt. The monarch went down memory lane to recall how his guest then a Senator went the extra length to make him comfortable during the process of his screening in the Senate chambers as an ambassador designate.

Chicago Academic Record: Atiku Plans Fresh Suit Against Tinubu
The legal team of the Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is planning to file a motion to challenge President Bola Tinubu’s plea for Chicago State University not to release privileged documents in his academic records.
Atiku’s Special Adviser on Public Communications, Phrank Shaibu, confirmed this to Punch.
According to Shaibu, the legal team had up to 48 hours to respond to the motion in the US court.
Atiku had earlier secured an order for CSU to make the president’s academic records available to his legal team.
A magistrate, Jeffrey Gilbert, had last week ordered Tinubu’s alma mater to provide all relevant and non-privileged documents to the applicant within two days.
Atiku is currently challenging the victory of the former Lagos State governor at the 2023 presidential poll and his recent affirmation by an election petition court in Nigeria.
The documents sought by the PDP candidate, through his counsel, Angela Liu, include the record of admission and acceptance at the university, dates of attendance including degrees, awards, and honors attained by the former governor of Lagos State at the university, among others.
But as the deadline given by Gilbert drew nearer on Thursday, Tinubu’s lawyers approached Maldonado, arguing that the earlier decision by Gilbert needed to be reviewed by a district judge.
The request for a review and delay of the order till Monday was eventually granted by the US district judge.
Tinubu’s application, filed by his lawyers, Oluwole Afolabi and Christopher Charmichael, advanced two reasons.
First was that his academic records in issue are not useful in Nigerian courts as claimed by Atiku because the Nigerian election proceedings and the Nigerian courts have explicitly been unreceptive to the discovery.
The second reason given was that Atiku’s request is unduly intrusive because it allows Applicant (Atiku) to conduct a fishing expedition into intervenor’s private, confidential, and protected educational records.
When asked on Wednesday to confirm if Atiku has filed the suit as he earlier threatened in Monday, Shaibu reassured our correspondent that the former vice president would submit the motion before midnight.
He said, “I am sure you have seen his application. We are working on our response. We have up till midnight today (Wednesday) to respond to them. And we will.”
On when they expect the court to rule over the matter, Shaibu stated that “It is after we have responded to the court, that it will fix the date and inform the parties.”
When contacted for reaction, Coordinator of Tinubu Presidential Legal Team, Babatunde Ogala, who spoke via phone from his base in the United States told, The PUNCH he would rather not speak on the development.
“As I told you earlier, I am still on vacation,” he said.
