Politics: Sessions defends himself against extraordinary Trump attack, says he'll 'continue to discharge my duties with integrity and honor'

jeff sessions

President Donald Trump expressed disgust that his attorney general asked an Obama-era internal watchdog to investigate allegations of surveillance abuse.

  • President Donald Trump on Wednesday slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for tapping the Justice Department's inspector general, who was nominated by President Barack Obama, to investigate allegations of surveillance abuse.
  • Trump questioned why Sessions wasn't using the department's lawyers instead.
  • Sessions said on Tuesday that he thought it was "the appropriate thing" for the inspector general to take on the investigation.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended himself on Wednesday against a public attack from President Donald Trump, saying the Justice Department will continue its work in a "fair and impartial manner."

"As long as I am the Attorney General, I will continue to discharge my duties with integrity and honor, and this Department will continue to do its work in a fair and impartial manner according to the law and Constitution," Sessions said in a statement.

Trump had lashed out earlier at Sessions for asking the Justice Department's internal watchdog, who was nominated in 2011 by President Barack Obama, to investigate allegations of surveillance abuse rather than using the department's lawyers.

"Why is A.G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse," Trump tweeted, referring to surveillance warrants granted by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. "Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn't the I.G. an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!"

Sessions announced Tuesday that the Justice Department's inspector general, Michael Horowitz, was investigating House Republicans' accusations — laid out in a controversial memo released earlier this month by the chamber's Intelligence Committee — that the FBI abused its authority in seeking a warrant to surveil a former Trump campaign adviser in 2016.

House Democrats on Saturday released a memo countering those claims, arguing that the Justice Department and the FBI provided ample evidence to the surveillance court that justified seeking the so-called FISA warrant.

Horowitz has been the department's inspector general since 2012. Trump hasn't nominated anyone for the post, so Horowitz has stayed on the job.

"We believe the Department of Justice must adhere to the highest standards in the FISA court, and yes, it will be investigated, and I think that's just the appropriate thing," Sessions said at a news conference Tuesday, adding that the inspector general would lead the investigation.

Trump's tweet on Wednesday was far from the first time he has publicly criticized his attorney general. In a dayslong Twitter rant last week, the president demanded to know why Sessions wasn't investigating Obama in connection with the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 US election.

Trump has also berated Sessions since the attorney general recused himself from all matters related to the Russia investigation in March. Trump has said he wouldn't have nominated Sessions as attorney general had he known Sessions would do so.

Romantic: 7 sex games you absolutely have to try with bae

3 convenient truths about a friends-with-benefits relationship

Sexy games that are way more fun than truth or dare and pillow fighting.

Here are seven sexy games to try with bae when it feels like things are becoming a little boring and routine in the sack.

Even if things aren't boring yet. who says no extra fun?!

Depending on where you are in your sex game with your boo, these seven games will surely bring an extra spark or pump up the energy and intensity of your relationship.

1. What is your fantasy?

You and your bae write down fantasies you have yet to share with your partner. Put the slips of paper into a hat or a bowl, then take turns unfolding them, one by one.

What's next? Of course you execute them! This allows you to try out a whole bunch of new, super-sexy things.

2. Make believe

You'll need a large bag full of props for this one — a fireman's hat, a nurse's dress, a face mask, cheerleader's skirt, etc

Take turns reaching nto the bag. Whichever prop you grab is a role play fantasy you have to act out.

Hey, a little role play never hurt anybody, right?!


3. Time bomb

To have a blast with this game, [you catch the pun, right?] pick a time interval — 15 minutes sounds fair enough.

Whatever interval you choose, tease each other with kissing, touching, and every form of foreplay you want but you absolutely should not allow penetration until that much time has elapsed.

This is perfect if you have been having problems with hurried foreplay. Take your time on this one and rediscover the magic of roving hands and warm lips.

ALSO READ: You and bae should try sex at these 20 places at least once

4. Blind man's buff

A necktie, scarf, or a blindfold and you're ready to roll with this one.

Blindfold him and lead him to the bed or some other part of the house you prefer. Proceed to ravish him as slowly, recklessly and teasingly as you want.

Being unable to see during sex has two major effects — it dramatically increases sensitivity and psychological vulnerability. Enough said.


5. Naughty girl

Whisper in your man's ear all the wrong things you did that day.

Did you fail to finish your task at work? Did you leave the dishes in the sink when you promised to wash it? Did you curse a colleague at work or forgot to call a client you should have?

Just report yourself to him then kneel on the bed. Your man spanks you using his hand or a hairbrush or a not-too-scary disciplinary accessory.

A smart smack on the butt creates a tingly, alert sensation that combines well with the other feelings of sex. You'll love it.

6. Follow the honey

Bring in a squeeze bottle of honey and plant little dollops of honey on parts of your body that you want your partner to kiss. Just be sure to have some tissue or wet wipes around.

You could draw a little treasure map toward your underwear, or use the sticky markers to note erogenous zones he hasn't explored yet, like your toes or collar bone.


7. Hide and seek

This is an x-rated version of that childhood game everyone loves.

The next time your partner is on their way home, leave a pile of your clothes by the door and a note in the entryway saying you're hiding somewhere naked.

Once they find you, they get to decide what comes next — and then you can do the seeking for round two.

Kaduna youths rioting in 2017

Eyewitness said some men in military uniform armed with AK 47 rifles stormed the house of one Abdullahi Tandama and Alhaji Sufyanu.

Two suspected armed robbers and one resident were killed following an armed robbery attack on Tandama village of Danja Local Government Area of Katsina state

ChannelsTv reports that an eyewitness whose brother was killed by the suspected armed robbers, at about 1:15 am this morning, said some men in military uniform armed with AK 47 rifles stormed the house of one Abdullahi Tandama and Alhaji Sufyanu.

However, collective resistance by community members led to the death of two of the gunmen after they killed one of the residents.

“My brother and few others were sleeping outside our main house but the hail of gunfire woke them up to assist but they later got killed, although we do not have guns, we outnumbered them with bow and arrows, we killed two of them before they eventually retreated on hearing the arrival of the police,” the eyewitness said.

The Katsina state police command in a press statement said the suspected armed robbers engaged the police in gun duel which resulted in the death of two of them.

“Our rapid response team was able to recover one AK 47 rifle with breach number 197797754 alongside double magazine containing ten rounds of live ammunition”.

The command also confirmed that special anti-robbery squad unit is currently on the trail of the fleeing suspects.

Meanwhile, twelve people have been confirmed dead as a result of the clash in Kasuwan Magani in Kaduna state.

The company said this in a statement issued on Tuesday, February 28 by the company. The pay-Tv provider stated that this shows people are only willing to pay for what they watched.

In recent time, Nigerians have been calling for a pay-per-view (PPV) model which allows subscribers to pay Tv platform to only pay for what they watch. Inadequate power supply in Nigeria has made the monthly subscription a loss of money to the people.

StarTimes started the pay-per-day pricing model in November 2017.

The Brands & Marketing Director of StarTimes, Mr Qasim Elegbede, said the number of new and existing customers subscribing to the pay-per-day program is soaring fast on a daily basis. He said this is to show the daily plan resonates with the income level of the majority of Nigerians.

“Our Subscriber base continues to soar fast and statistics have revealed that most of our new subscribers come in asking to be placed on the pay per day plan, which is the latest package that allows you pay only for the number of days you wish to watch.”

He added that: “Being the only pay TV operator that offers daily subscription package, it is not surprising that this has been in our favour as most people no longer want to pay for TV subscription they hardly watch.”

The company is the only pay-Tv operator offering daily viewing plan in Nigeria.

Politics: White House officials are reportedly tired of hearing about a 'bloody nose' strike against North Korea

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in an undated photo released by North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on September 16, 2017.

The term loosely refers to a limited strike, aimed at sending North Korea a message to curb its nuclear ambitions.

  • White House officials and aides reportedly dislike the "bloody nose" strike label.
  • The term loosely refers to a limited strike, aimed at sending North Korea a message to curb its nuclear ambitions.

The "bloody nose" strike against North Korea that was reportedly proposed by White House officials appears to have brought about as much confusion now as it did shock when it was first reported.

The term has been circulating around foreign policy circles after The Telegraph published an article that cited "well-placed" sources in December. Since then, the two words have alarmed North Korea analysts for its brazen approach that could spiral into further conflict with North Korea on an unprecedented scale.

The term has even spread to South Korean news outlets, which have translated the phrase literally and prompted scathing opinion columns from critics.

But White House officials denied using the term and said in classified briefings and in public that they would not support the policy, according to a Washington Post report on Monday. One administration official reportedly believed the term would have "petered out."

"The phrase has never, ever been uttered by anyone in the White House," a senior administration official said in The Post.

The apparent conflict between the widespread reporting of White House discussions of a limited strike, and the denials of the existence of a "bloody nose" strategy by several senior US officials, may just be semantics, foreign policy analysts said in The Post.

National security adviser H.R. McMaster, who reportedly denied having a plan to carry out a "bloody nose" strike, was previously believed to have been one of the main advocates for the plan, according to sources in a CNN report.

Despite the conflict between McMaster's denials and reports of his proposal, he reportedly became frustrated with the term and joked to his aides that they ought to work on a "stubbed toe" strategy, The Post reported.

Though the exact scope of the strike remains unclear, the prevailing theory is that of a limited strike intended to send a message to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. One former US security official described it as "options that would allow them to punch the North Koreans in the nose, get their attention and show that we're serious," according to The Telegraph.

Buhari: 'Prepare for 2019 elections,' President tells APC leaders

'Prepare for 2019 elections,' Buhari tells APC leaders

Buhari also slammed the Jonathan administration for allegedly depleting the Nigeria's treasury, adding that the country was nearly collapsing.

President Muhammadu Buhari has asked leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to start preparing for the 2019 elections.

He said this when he hosted top members of the party at the presidential villa in Abuja. on Monday, February 26, 2018.

He expressed gratitude to the party members for standing by him despite the "antics of the opposition."

The President said, "I must heartily thank the party officials and members for the successes we have achieved in the 2015 elections in securing majority of the states, majority in the national assembly and majority in the state assemblies.

"We must remember that this resounding success would not have been achieved without the unity of purpose we exhibited in challenging and defeating an incumbent government.

"Those outstanding successes would not have been possible without your hard work, dedication, and above all, sacrifice. I wish to individually and collectively thank you all sincerely for believing in me and remaining steadfast party members despite distractions and antics of the opposition. This unity and success are needed now more than ever, because elections are now looming.

"Now that INEC has come out with the timetable for elections in 2019, the party should prepare itself for congresses at A. Wards, B. Local Governments, C. States and D. Centre.

"We should strictly follow the constitution of the Party in undertaking these party elections. We should ensure internal democracy and avoid shortcuts and illegal maneuvers which have characterized the opposition party with the consequences that they are now divided.

"The APC has a history of conducting free and fair primaries whenever consensus about any candidacy is not reached. Regardless of the outcomes of the primary processes, it is imperative that we all work together to ensure the victory of our party."

 

Buhari also used the opportunity to, again, list the failures of his predecessor Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a whole.

He said Nigeria was on the verge of collapse before he took over, adding that Jonathan's government was characterized by monumental fraud.

The President further said, "I must state at the outset that to succeed we must in all our actions and decisions follow strictly the constitution of our party. It is easy to forget that we succeeded a government with a record of unprecedented theft and systematic mismanagement.

"Nigeria was fast heading for a state of collapse. It is easy to forget the fuel subsidy fraud, arms fund diversion, depleted excess de Account savings, depleted foreign reserves, massive unpaid debts to contractors and suppliers amidst failure to invest or even maintain our infrastructure namely railways, roads, electricity, inspite of having earned over US$500 billion from Oil & Gas alone, during the 16 years of PDP rule.

"Lest we forget, we must always remind ourselves of the dire situation in which we came to office.

"Therefore we must not be shy in projecting our tremendous achievements from 2015 to date. The territorial integrity of Nigeria longer under threat. A number of security challenges still exist, but they exist in even the most well policed and well-secured countries. I am confident that the measures we are taking will tackle the acts of rural banditry, herdsmen/farmers conflicts, communal clashes, kidnappings and other crimes."

ALSO READ: 5 young candidates who want Buhari's job in 2019

Although Buhari is yet to formally announce if he would be seeking a re-election in 2019, it is widely believed that he would run.

He recently directed the national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to reunite and reconcile aggrieved members of the party nationwide ahead of the 2019 elections.

Tech: Rome just got hit with a rare 'Beast from the East' snowstorm, and even priests at the Vatican came out to play

Roofs are seen covered in snow in downtown Rome, Italy February 26, 2018.

The Earth seems to be running a serious fever. The arctic is at its warmest temperature in years, while a "Beast from the East" cold snap is hitting Europe.

Rome wasn't built in a day, and it wasn't built for snow, either.

In fact, the Italian capital had seen white powder only once in the past 30 years, until Monday.

That's when thermostats at the Vatican dipped below freezing, shocking priests and nuns who got stuck in the snow. Even the army had to be called in to help clear the Roman streets, Reuters reported.

But the Romans aren't the only ones shaking in their bitterly-cold boots. Across Europe, people are dealing with a blast of cold air this week, as a so-called "Beast from the East" moves across Europe, bringing chilly, extreme weather in from Siberia.

Scientists are pointing out that it's all part of a disturbing trend: the polar jet stream has been acting weird lately, and the North Pole is actually warmer than parts of Europe this week.

Meteorologist Eric Holthaus called it a "shocking sign of our Earth's accelerating planetary fever."

Take a look at how Italy looks in the snow:

Roman temperatures normally never dip below zero.

The average low temperature for February should be 3.5 degrees Celsius or 38 Fahrenheit, while the high is typically near 13 Celsius or 55 Fahrenheit, according to the World Meteorological Association.

But on Monday, the temperature in the city dropped below 20 degrees Fahrenheit, or -7 Celsius.

More than four inches of snow fell in four hours at the airport, Reuters reported.

The city ground to a halt, closing schools and urging residents to stay home.

Roman city officials asked places more used to seeing snow if they could borrow snow plows, according to Reuters.

The last time the city saw real snow like this was in 2012, which was Rome's first fresh powder dusting in nearly three decades.

That's when a blistering cold snap killed hundreds of people across Europe.

This week, the World Meteorological Association (WMO) is issuing cold weather warnings across the European continent once again.

“This cold period … could be a risk to life for vulnerable people exposed to the cold,” the WMO said.

Source: Reuters

The cold blasts didn't stop these tourists from pausing to snap a selfie in front of the Spanish Steps.

And this priest couldn't resist a rare chance to hurl a snowball from St. Peter's Square, at the Vatican.

Other priests just marveled at the highly unusual sight.

The abnormally chilly European temperatures are one indicator that the world's climate is in chaos.

Climate scientist Robert Rohde from Berkeley pointed out on Twitter that temperatures across the Arctic have also been going haywire recently, averaging 54 degrees Fahrenheit higher (+30 Celsius) than normal.

Pope Francis recently blasted climate change deniers, saying: "Those who deny this must go to the scientists and ask them. They speak very clearly."

Source: National Catholic Reporter

The Pope also said "history will judge" those who don't take action on climate change.

Aboard the papal plane in September, the pope said politicians have a "moral responsibility" to do their part to fight the planet's shifting temperatures, which are a consequence of the greenhouse gases emitted by humans' burning of fossil fuels.

"When you don't want to see, you don't see," the Pope said.

The freeze, fueled by a flip-flop-like disturbance in the Arctic jet stream, is expected to continue across Europe in the coming days.

Politics: 4 far-right terrorist plots have been foiled in the last year in the UK, and the threat is only growing

mark rowley

Britain's head of counter-terrorism policing has warned of unsettling similarities between Islamist terrorism and the far-right.

  • British authorities have stopped four far-right terror attacks in the last year.
  • The UK's outgoing head of counter-terrorism policing has warned of the growing danger of the far-right.
  • "For the first time we have a home-grown proscribed white-supremacist neo-Nazi terror group," Mark Rowley said.

The threat of far-right terrorism in the UK is growing and British authorities have foiled four terror plots in the last year, a retiring senior police officer has warned.

Assistant commissioner Mark Rowley, the UK's head of counter-terrorism policing, said in a speech at think tank Policy Exchange on Monday that the threat from the far-right in Britain is "of grave concern," and it is becoming increasingly organised.

"For the first time we have a home-grown proscribed white-supremacist neo-Nazi terror group, which seeks to plan attacks and build international networks," he said, according to a transcript of his remarks. "You will agree this is a matter of grave concern."

He also made comparisons between the far-right and the threat of Islamist terrorism: "Ironically, while Islamist and Extreme Right Wing ideologies may appear to be at opposing ends of the argument it is evident that they both have a great deal in common.

"I think it important to expose some of what we see as extremists systematically and determinedly trying to undermine a peaceful, tolerant and democratic society."

He added: "Islamist and right wing extremism is reaching into our communities through sophisticated propaganda and subversive strategies creating and exploiting vulnerabilities that can ultimately lead to acts of violence and terrorism."

Far-right leaders Tommy Robinson and Jayda Fransen — neither of whom have been accused of terror offenses — were accused by Rowley of producing "extremist rhetoric with the common goal of increasing tensions and divisions in communities."

British law enforcement currently has more than 600 terrorism investigations underway across the spectrum (Islamism, the far-right, and others), with more than 3,000 subjects of interest.

"10 conspiracies of an Islamist nature were stopped since the Westminster attack," Rowley said, referring to the March 2017 terror attack in London that left 6 dead.

"And I can tell you today that over that same period police have been able to prevent a further four extreme right wing inspired plots in the UK.

"It is important we make these figures public in order to illustrate the growth of right wing terrorism."

In February 2019, Darren Osborne was sentenced to life in prison after driving a van into a group of Muslims outside a mosque in Finsbury Park, North London, killing one person and injuring nine others. The judge said Osborne was "rapidly radicalised over the internet by those determined to spread hatred of Muslims."

World: Lower oil prices force saudis to widen their circle of friends

Oil wells in the Midway Sunset oil field, California's oldest, near Fellows, Calif., Jan. 22, 2013. While Saudi Arabia is still a major energy producer, it must compensate for its lost revenue, and the U.S., China and Russia are all circling in hopes of gaining a financial advantage.

Saudi Arabia has long been the dominant force in oil, leaving the world at the mercy of its ambitions and interests. Now the kingdom must refresh its strategy to reflect a weaker hand — and in many ways, a different game.

The changing nature of the energy industry — the oil production boom in American shale fields, the persistence of lower crude prices, and the rise of natural gas — has transformed the geopolitical equation.

While Saudi Arabia is a major energy producer, it must compensate for its lost revenue. And the United States, China and Russia are all circling in hopes of gaining a financial advantage.

Russia, smarting from Western sanctions and lower oil prices, is moving to embrace Saudi Arabia for energy deals despite their rivalry in Syria, where the two countries support competing sides. China, with its domestic oil production in steep decline, seeks a stable flow not just of Saudi oil but of Saudi investment in its growing petrochemical and refinery industries.

And Washington is willing to overlook those flirtations in the hope that Saudi Arabia will continue to be a strategic bulwark against Iran.

The desires of all three superpowers fit neatly into Saudi Arabia’s strategy to find new investment partners as part of a broader push to diversify its oil-dependent economy, trim large budget deficits and secure the future of both the kingdom’s welfare state and its monarchy.

The keystone to the project is the proposed initial public stock offering of Saudi Aramco, the national oil company, a deal that could be worth hundreds of billions of dollars.

The changing geopolitical game was on full display in December when Saudi Arabia’s energy minister, Khalid al-Falih, braved the Russian arctic cold as President Vladimir Putin’s guest of honor at the opening of a giant natural-gas export terminal.

For Putin, it was an audacious embrace of a U.S. ally as he moved to expand his nation’s energy riches despite the sanctions. For al-Falih, it was a chance to discuss future gas sales, attract investment in Saudi Aramco and coordinate efforts to prop up global oil prices.

“If we continue to work the way we do, we will turn from rivals to partners,” Putin told al-Falih at the public ceremony. The Saudi official readily agreed.

The ultimate success of the Saudi Aramco public offering and the entirety of the kingdom’s economic reform remain in question, and progress so far has been mixed. Nevertheless, U.S., Chinese and even Russian financiers are entwined in a complex dance around the initial public offering, promised later this year.

President Donald Trump has called for the IPO to be listed in New York. A Saudi listing now appears more likely, with additional trading in London or Hong Kong. Global financiers say they want a piece of the action wherever it occurs.

The interest in the IPO has given the kingdom greater leverage at a time when the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, through which it has long wielded power, has lost clout.

“The Saudis are compensating for their lost power in OPEC and they are showing pure geopolitical pragmatism in their new energy and foreign policy,” said Bill Richardson, a former energy secretary and ambassador to the United Nations. “But they are not just compensating for lost power. They are adding to their power in world politics.”

Saudi Arabia has had a central role in global energy since at least World War II. When the kingdom created a global glut of oil to gain market share in the mid-1980s, it sent prices into a tailspin that contributed to the bankruptcy of the Soviet Union at the same time that it was financing Afghan rebels fighting the Soviets.

The kingdom was such a crucial supplier of oil to the U.S. that Washington went to war in the early 1990s in part to protect it from a possible Iraqi invasion. And when China needed energy supplies for its expanding economy in the early years of the new century, Saudi Arabia was there with an ambitious oil exploration program to meet the demand.

But OPEC can no longer control oil prices alone. A flood of oil from American shale fields has enabled the United States to slash imports of OPEC oil and begin exporting to markets that were once dominated by Saudi crude.

The Saudis, led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, are seeking to link cuts in OPEC production over the past two years with cuts by Russia, another oil-exporting powerhouse, to buoy prices. Over the longer term, the Saudis want to import natural gas to replace domestic consumption of oil for electricity, freeing more crude for export.

At the same time, the country is expanding its investments in refineries and petrochemical plants around Asia and the United States to guarantee markets for its crude while making additional sales of higher-value gasoline, diesel and other refined products.

“Low oil prices have made the Saudi way of life unsustainable, so they have to find alternatives,” said Bruce Riedel, a former Middle East analyst for the Central Intelligence Agency and the author of “Kings and Presidents: Saudi Arabia and the United States Since F.D.R.” “Any partner they can find that can help them do that, they are going to embrace enthusiastically.”

The most surprising partner is Russia, which remains on the opposite side of the Syrian civil war and is also trying to build better relations with Iran, Saudi Arabia’s bitter regional rival.

In the fall of 2016, the crown prince’s father, King Salman, made the first official trip to Russia by a reigning Saudi monarch. Multiple cooperation agreements including military sales were reached, as well as a commitment by Russia’s largest petrochemicals company, Sibut, to build a plant in Saudi Arabia.

Kirill Dmitriev, chief executive of the state-run Russian Direct Investment Fund, recently expressed interest in the Saudi Aramco IPO, even suggesting that a group of Russian and Chinese investors could join in a bid.

Relationships between the Chinese and Saudi oil companies had already grown close in recent years. Saudi Aramco bought a 25 percent stake in a refinery in Fujian province operated by the state-owned oil giant Sinopec, and the companies have joint refinery ventures in Saudi Arabia. China and Saudi Arabia also signed a preliminary agreement last summer to create a $20 billion investment fund for infrastructure, energy and mining projects.

“We might as well work with them,” said Sadad Ibrahim al-Husseini, a former Saudi Aramco executive vice president. “They desperately need energy, and we have a heck of a lot of energy, so the pieces fit.”

Such deals also promote Saudi Aramco’s efforts to become a global refining powerhouse. That can only increase the value of the proposed initial public offering of the company, which already produces more crude than any other in the world.

Many international banks, including JPMorgan Chase, HSBC, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse, have been seeking a role in the eventual deal.

“Every global investment bank should be interested in a lead role given the quality of the company and the fact that it would be the largest IPO in history,” said Osmar Abib, global head of oil and gas at Credit Suisse Securities.

The kingdom has valued the company at $2 trillion, a number that investment bankers say would be realistic only if oil were worth $100 a barrel, nearly $40 more than the current price.

Many energy experts doubt that the stock offering will be completed because of persistent questions about the rule of law in Saudi Arabia, as well as the special privileges granted to Saudi royalty. They predict that members of the royal family will be reluctant to give up the confidentiality of their earnings from the company, which are now hidden from the public. International investors have also been shaken by the recent roundup of wealthy Saudis who were forced to pay for their freedom.

“It’s going to be very hard for them to persuade anybody to buy a hunk of Aramco until they figure out how to be more transparent about the royals’ take and the actual value of the company,” said David L. Goldwyn, who was the State Department’s top energy official early in the Barack Obama administration.

Saudi oil executives say the issues of valuation and governance will be worked out in the end because the crown prince and his father view the public offering as central to remaking the economy with more foreign investment.

“There is no backtracking,” al-Husseini said. “The IPO commitment is driven by a central leadership, by people who are empowered to make decisions. It’s not a winding narrow road that comes to no conclusion.”

Opinion: In China, fears of a 'super-president' with 'no limits on his power'

Chinese President Xi Jinping attends a meeting at the United Nations European headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, January 18, 2017.

Xi, who has been president since 2013, has tried to cultivate an image as a benevolent father figure who is working to promote China’s peaceful rise.

President Xi Jinping’s efforts to indefinitely extend his rule as China’s leader, announced on Sunday, raised fresh fears in China of a resurgence of strongman politics — and fears abroad of a new era of hostility and gridlock.

Xi, who has been president since 2013, has tried to cultivate an image as a benevolent father figure who is working to promote China’s peaceful rise.

But the ruling Communist Party’s decision to amend China's Constitution and open a path to a third term for Xi heightened a sense of resentment in China among academics, lawyers, journalists and business executives. Many have watched warily as Xi has used his power to imprison scores of dissidents, stifle free speech and tighten oversight of the economy, the world’s second largest.

Wu Qiang, a political analyst in Beijing who is critical of Xi, said the change to the Constitution would turn Xi into a “super-president.”

“He will have no limits on his power,” he said.

Government censors rushed to block criticism of the decision. Internet memes depicted Xi as an emperor with no regard for the rule of law and showed a portrait of Xi replacing Mao’s hallowed image in Tiananmen Square. Another repurposed an ad for Durex condoms, adding a tag line — “Twice is not enough” — to poke fun at the idea of Xi angling for a third term.

The party’s move comes as Xi has proclaimed an era of China’s greatness, when the country, he says, will take what he see as its rightful place as a top global power. Already, it is establishing military bases in the Western Pacific and Africa, building infrastructure across Asia, parts of Europe and Africa, and running what Xi hopes will be the world’s No. 1 economy within two decades or sooner.

“China feels it is on the road to great power status and they want to perpetuate the trajectory they are on,” said David Finkelstein, director of China Studies at CNA, a research institute in Arlington, Virginia.

Some analysts outside China said they worried that allowing Xi one-man rule might worsen an increasingly tense relationship between the United States and China.

Fulani Herdsmen: Niger govt to revive, expand 30,000 hectares Bobi grazing reserve

Niger state government to expand 30,000 hectares Bobi grazing reserve

Gov. Abubakar Bello stated this while inspecting the site on Sunday.

The Niger State Government says it is reviving and expanding the 30,000 hectares Bobi Grazing Reserve in Oro village of Mariga Local Government, as part of efforts to curtail farmers/herdsmen clashes.

A statement by Jibrin Ndache, Chief Press Secretary of the Governor, said on Sunday in Minna that Gov. Abubakar Bello stated this while inspecting the site on Sunday.

It quoted Bello as saying that reviving the grazing reserves was part of Federal Government’s efforts toward ending the clashes that had continued to claim human and animal lives.

Bello said that a committee had been put in place to meet with herdsmen on modalities for operating the reserve.

The statement added that government was assessing facilities at the grazing reserve with a view to renovate them and expand the fields to cater for a minimum of one million ruminant animals.

It quoted Bello as saying that “our forefathers foresaw a situation of conflict among us that was why they provided the grazing reserves over 50 years ago’’.

It said that existing structures and facilities would be renovated and refurbished while schools would be revived to meet the educational needs of the herdsmen.

“We will need more grazing areas, so it has become necessary to grow grasses. We will also need milk collection centres and veterinary services at the grazing reserve,’’ Bello said.

According to him, the Niger government is planning to enforce a cattle tax system for security purposes.

He said that the tax regime would ease the monitoring of herdsmen occupying the grazing reserve area.

“To ensure the success of the programme, we are considering tax, though we have not concluded our arrangement,” he said.

He said that the tax system was good for security purposes as strange elements would easily be detected.

Bello warned those that had encroached into the land for farming to steer clear of the gazetted area to avoid clashes with herdsmen.

“I don’t expect any farmer here. I have just been told that there are some farmers who are here illegally.

“So, if there is any farmer here, I have just given instruction that notice should be given and they should know that this is strictly a gazetted Grazing Reserve,’’ Bello said.

Mr David Sado, Officer in Charge of the Grazing Reserve, told the governor that past administrations had not paid any attention to the facility ever since it was handed over to the state government in 2006.

Sado explained that Bobi Grazing Reserves consisted of 30,000 hectares of land divided into seven blocks with about 700 households and six earth dams, a solar-powered and motorized boreholes and five pasture blocks.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Bobi Grazing Reserve was established 50 years ago and was handed over to the Niger government in 2006.

INEC: PDP rejects agency’s investigative committee on under-aged voting

Under-Aged Voting: PDP rejects INEC's probe panel

The PDP said the panel lacked credibility as it comprised officials of INEC, which had been accused of complicity in the issue.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the eight-member in-house committee constituted by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to investigate reports of under-age voters in Kano State.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, on Sunday in Abuja, the PDP said the panel lacked credibility as it comprised officials of INEC, which had been accused of complicity in the issue.

It said that the panel had been detailed to arrive at pre-determined findings and recommendations to exonerate the commission and play down on the electoral implications of the existence of under-age voters.

The party said that the scope of the inquest, particularly the exclusion of Katsina State from the probe in spite of vast evidence of under-age voters in that state, was not acceptable.

It alleged that the fact that the All Progressives Congress (APC) rose in staunch defence of INEC over the existence of minors as voters further confirmed that the ruling party had more than vested interests in the illegality.

“Nigerians have been wondering why INEC is afraid of looking at its register in Katsina state.

“Is it because Katsina is the home state of President Muhammadu Buhari and a probe is likely to expose cans of worms?

“Is INEC afraid that a sanitised register would lead to a massive drop in the voting population in the state and cripple APC’s rigging plan?

“Nigerians are also wondering why INEC has vehemently refused to include other stakeholders, including political parties, credible NGOs and Civil Society Organisations in this important assignment to guarantee its
credibility,”
it stated.

The party alleged that by excluding other stakeholders, INEC was definitely not sincere with the sanitisation of the voter register in Kano, Katsina and other states.

“INEC, under Prof. Mahmood Yakubu is already manifesting weaknesses and bias, which further confirms why it should not be trusted in the conduct of the 2019 general elections.

“Consequently, the PDP and all aligning stakeholders will not accept any findings or recommendations from INEC’s in-house committee as such will not reflect the reality on the ground regarding the contaminated register,’’ it added.

The party insisted that INEC must be bold enough to extend the inquest to Katsina state as well as other states where minors were registered.

According to it, failure by the commission to do so implies that it has already caved in to pressure ahead of the 2019 elections.

The PDP charged the INEC chairman to quickly redeem the image of the commission by immediately disbanding the flawed committee.

It advised the commission to set up a more credible and transparent panel made up of political parties, credible NGOs and CSOs, and extend the inquest to Katsina and other states.

It said Nigerians would not accept anything short of a credible, free and fair general elections in 2019, adding that any attempt by anyone to subvert the will of the people would have himself to blame.

Meanwhile, the PDP has urged the Federal Government to provide answers to urgent questions surrounding the abduction of schoolgirls in Dapchi, Yobe.

It said in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, on Sunday in Abuja, that the Presidency needed to react to the allegation that security was compromised around the school.

The party said that the Federal Government should account for all the misleading reports that frustrated the immediate rescue of the girls.

“Nigerians have been in shock over revelations by the Yobe Governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Gaidam, that the abduction was preceded by withdrawal of troops around Dapchi, thereby paving the way for insurgents to attack and abduct the girls.”
