NIGERIA NEWSPAPERS: TODAY'S THE VANGUARD NEWSPAPER HEADLINES [12 JANUARY, 2018]


Below are the headlines found on The Vanguard Online Newspaper for today, Saturday, 13 January, 2017.

The organised labour, yesterday, called on the police to arrest the Special Assistant to Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State on Public Affairs for allegedly leading the suspected thugs that attacked workers during the protest rally organized by the leadership of Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, Thursday. The Special Assistant on Public Affairs, Mouktar Maigamo according to a statement signed by the General Secretary of the NLC, Dr. Peter Ozo-Eson was allegedly seen with suspected hoodlums with dangerous weapons that attacked the workers.
The statement read: “We have been reliably informed that the thugs who were sent to attack workers during our mass protest in Kaduna on Thursday were led by the Special Assistant to the Governor of Kaduna State on Public Affairs, Mouktar Maigamo who was seen among the machetes wielding hoodlums as they moved towards the secretariat of the State Council of Nigeria Labour Congress in Kaduna. “Though we have also been reliably informed that 10 of the hoodlums were arrested, we insist that the Special Assistant must also be arrested. All those arrested must be prosecuted by security agencies. “We condemn the security agencies for preventing several union leaders and workers from entering Kaduna city as all the entry points were occupied by heavily armed security agents. The actions of the security agents, ostensibly at the behest of the Governor, are clear violations of the fundamental rights of workers, like every other Nigerian, to free movement. “Before the mass protests, we had informed all security agencies especially the police and Department of State Security and what we expected of them was the provision of adequate coverage and security for the protection of workers participating in the procession and not the prevention of labour leaders and workers into Kaduna city.

Africans have reacted angrily after US President Donald Trump reportedly referred to their nations as “shithole countries”, with many accusing the US president of racism and ignorance.
The 55-nation African Union condemned the remarks on Friday, while a statement from ambassadors of all countries from the continent at the United Nations demanded a retraction and apology. The African Group of UN ambassadors said it was “extremely appalled at, and strongly condemns the outrageous, racist and xenophobic remarks by the president of the United States of America as widely reported by the media”. Ambassadors unanimously agreed the resolution after an emergency session to weigh Trump’s remarks. The comment was “clearly” racist, said Ebba Kalondo, spokeswoman for AU chief Moussa Faki. “This is even more hurtful given the historical reality of just how many Africans arrived in the United States as slaves, and also terribly surprising as the United States remains a massively positive example as just how migration can give birth to a nation,” Kalondo said. He stressed the US was “much stronger than the sum total of one man”. Trump reportedly demanded to know why the United States should accept immigrants from “shithole countries”, after lawmakers raised the issue of protections for immigrants from African nations, Haiti and El Salvador.
