Buhari, according to a statement by his spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, gave the assurance at a brief ceremony in the State House where he signed the bill establishing the University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun, Delta State, into law.

He quoted the president as saying “this administration is fully committed to supporting the Niger Delta in its endeavours to achieve socio-economic development.”

Shehu also said the president appealed to all communities in the region to strive for peace through dialogue in resolving all conflicts not only among them but also with business entities and the authorities.

“With the signing of the bill into law, the path has been cleared for the establishment of the specialised university in the Niger Delta, charged with training and research in petroleum technologies,” the statement added.

Leicester sack manager – Craig Shakespeare

Craig Shakespeare

Leicester City have retrenched their manager Craig Shakespeare, four months after he signed a three-year deal with the club.

Shakespeare, 53, succeeded title winner Claudio Ranieri in February, initially on a temporary basis but later signed on a permanent basis.

Michael Appleton will take charge of the squad in the interim.

A statement from the club reads:

“Leicester City Football Club has today (Tuesday) parted company with its First Team Manager, Craig Shakespeare.

Michael Appleton will be in charge of the First Team as Caretaker Manager for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Swansea City, supported by First Team Coaches Mike Stowell and Adam Sadler.

“Leicester City Vice Chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said: ‘Craig has been a great servant to Leicester City – during his spells as an Assistant Manager and since taking over as Manager in challenging circumstances in February.

“‘His dedication to the Club and to his work has been absolute and the contribution he made to the most successful period in Leicester City history is considerable.

Leicester City vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha also have this to say

“Craig has been a great servant to Leicester City – during his spells as an assistant manager and since taking over as manager in challenging circumstances in February. His dedication to the club and to his work has been absolute and the contribution he made to the most successful period in Leicester City history is considerable.

“However, our early promise under Craig’s management has not been consistently evident in the months since and the board feels that, regrettably, a change is necessary to keep the club moving forward – consistent with the long-term expectations of our supporters, board and owners.

“Craig is and will remain a very popular, respected figure at Leicester City and will be welcome back at King Power Stadium in future, both professionally and as a friend of the club.

“The club will now begin the process of identifying and appointing its next first-team manager and will make no further comment on the process until the appropriate time.”

Shakespeare won eight of his 16 games in charge last season, and led the club to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Their next game is against Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday.

Defining Patience in my own way; is the ability to wait (hang on), even though the situation seems hopeless. Patience is waiting for the right time to do the right thing. Patience is not absent of action but waiting for the right time to take action. ‘Patience does not inculcate laziness, it inculcate thoughtfulness’.


Patience is a virtue you instill, not an inherited character. For you to be successful, you need patience. Patience is an important ingredient in the actualization of your dreams and aspirations. Rushing into things, will always lead to a rush out. When life is not giving you what you desire, you need to be patient because ‘No situation is permanent’.


Furthermore, Change is the only constant thing in life. Things change in one way or the other, sometimes it’s at first unnoticeable, but with patience it will always come to limelight at last. In Chemistry, when a reaction is going on, you don’t get your desired result by stopping it half way, you need to be patient especially for slow reactions, for the reaction to be completed before you can get the desired result. ‘Your life is never stagnant, there is always a change, though it may be slow, but it’s happening’. The patient dog eats the fattest bone and Rome was not built in a day they say.


Finally, you need patience, because you will always win at last. No matter how long or far your peers have gone ahead of you, if you are on the right track and patient enough to wait for your time, you will laugh at last, as he who laugh last, laugh best. Just make sure you are doing the right thing and with patience you have the key to unlock great success.


Ask before you buy

To be sincere, everyone knows what he/she needs at a point in time. Our mind and the present situation will always inform us if we need what we want to buy or not, unless we want to deceive ourselves.

But if you are not convinced enough by your mind and the present situation, either to buy or not, ask yourself these questions below if you need what you want to buy or not.


Question #1 – What is the motive behind buying what I want to buy? ‘There is always a reason behind every want’


Question #2 – What purpose will this product serve me? You need to identify the purpose of what you want to buy. How important the purpose is to you at that point in time should be crucial to your final decision.


Question #3 – Will it add to me or take away from me? Will it affect me positively or negatively in the long run? How positively it will affect you should determine if you will buy such thing.


If you can answer these questions sincerely, then you will know if you need what you want to buy or not.

  1. Know what you want to buy – Before you even think of buying anything online make sure you know everything about the product or goods you want to buy. You may ask; is it possible to buy what you don’t know? I will categorically say yes. It’s possible to buy what you know little or nothing about. For example, if you want to buy an android phone, you need to know the producer e.g. is it a techno, Samsung, Nokia android phone etc. You need ALL necessary & unnecessary information about the product from a well grounded source i.e either through the website or through those that knows the product very well, so as to avoid any fail in the future. I said unnecessary, because the information you termed unnecessary in the first instance, may later become the most important after all. So, it is very important for you to know what you want to buy.


  1. The price of the product/goods –You need to know the price from the real source (online shopping outlet website) and not from people around. Not even from those that have bought a product or goods from the online shopping outlet before, because prices are not always constant, they do change. Some people get disappointed when they were told this is the amount this product is sold for, but on getting to the online shopping outlet they met a totally different price. So, you need firsthand information from the outlet themselves.


  1. The exchange rate – You need to know the exchange rate of the dollar to your local currency which will give you the amount (Price of the product #2 above) in your own local currency so that you can know if you can afford it or not, especially when you are shopping on a foreign online shopping outlet.


  1. You need to know how the product will get to you – Make sure you get the right information on how the product will get to your doorstep; I mean right in your hands.


If you can follow all this step, then you are good to go.
