The same group that initially attacked him then set upon him again opening three of its doors to kick and punch him until bystanders came over to intervene.

Forbes names Dangote, Putin among world’s most powerful


The Forbes magazine, in its annual ranking of ‘The World’s Most Powerful People’, has listed the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, as the most powerful ahead of Germany’s Chancellor, Angela Merkel, and United States President, Barack Obama.

Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, is also listed among other world leaders.

Observers view Putin’s ranking could be traceable to Russia’s capacity to check the US threat to attack Syria.

The Russian President has been so ranked by the magazine for the third year in a row.

“Putin continues to prove he’s one of the few men in the world powerful enough to do what he wants,” Forbes noted.

Merkel, earlier ranked as the most powerful woman in the world by Forbes, rose from the fifth position in the overall ranking last year to second place in 2015.

Her firm bearing in tackling the influx of Syrian refugees and the Greek economic crisis pushed her to the new level.

The list has 73 people who are presidents, financiers, philanthropists and entrepreneurs. Nigeria’s billionaire businessman, Dangote, was listed in the 71st position, followed by Donald Trump and Margaret Chan of the World Health Organisation.

“The men and women who are featured on Forbes’ annual ranking of the World’s Most Powerful People are the 0.00000001% – the global elite whose actions move the planet. These heads of state, financiers, philanthropists and entrepreneurs truly run the world,” Forbes stated.

The magazine also noted that it considered hundreds of candidates from various spheres and based its decision on four criteria.

No going back on N5,000 allowance to jobless youths – APC

 























The All Progressives Congress has assured Nigerians that it will
not renege on its campaign promise to
pay 5,000 Naira each monthly to 25 million most vulnerable Nigerians, while calling on the citizens to ignore the mischievous attempt by the PDP to confuse and mislead them on this issue.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said even though the PDP-led Federal Government plundered the common wealth in its time, it (APC) has devised creative means not only to pay the money but also to fulfill its other campaign
promises to Nigerians.

It said the non-implementation of the payment policy so far is due to the fact that it was not included in the 2015
budget, which was prepared by the PDP-led Jonathan Administration, and also because of the need to first block
all financial leakages.

”Now, the Buhari administration has been busy putting into place measures that will make it possible to start the implementation of this project. Such measures include the introduction
of the Treasury Single Account (TSA).

”We are happy to inform Nigerians that as of the end of September 2015, over 1.4 trillion Naira – which hitherto was
lying unproductively in various commercial banks – has been recovered
and paid into the TSA,” APC said.

The party said that in its usual jumpy and superficial approach to issues, the PDP has already rushed to judgement on the issue without bothering to hear from the APC, which made the promise in the first instance.
