Amaechi
Governor Rotimi Amaechi's woes seems not to be over as the embattled governor keeps sinking deeper in crises. The Rivers State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in an official statement sent to SHOWBIZPLUS, says it still maintains its earlier position that the purported passage of the State 2014 budget outside the legislative chambers of the State House of Assembly by a few lawmakers loyal to Amaechi remains illegal, null and void, with no effect.

Exposed! How politicians hide fortunes in real estate, hospitality sectors


EFCC Boss, Lamorde

The fight against corruption at all levels of government may not be yielding positive results as politicians are increasingly using property acquisition and investment in the hospitality business to launder the money they are stealing from the treasury.
Investigations by our correspondent revealed that the politicians, who hitherto preferred to put their money in the capital market and foreign bank accounts, have now opened their eyes to property acquisition in choice areas in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and Kano, among others.
Although it was gathered that a number of politicians still keep their money abroad, a large percentage of them now prefer to invest in property because of its easy conversion to liquid cash and also because it serves as a hedge against inflation.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission said during the week that it had uncovered money laundering schemes in the Federal Capital Territory in which the perpetrators disguised the proceeds of crime by investing in properties.
The Chairman, EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde, said over 270 cases of land scams were reported to the commission in the last three years.

However; it's the other details that are causing issues," a source told British magazine Now.
"Kanye's insisting there's a provision in the prenup that Kim must try and get pregnant with at least one more child. As an incentive, he'll give her $5 million for one more child and $10 million for two."

The Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) Rivers State Chapter says available evidence shows the embattled state's government can no longer meet its responsibilities because it is broke despite the contrary view of Gov. Amaechi’s Information and Communications Commissioner, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari.

Why Heirs Holdings is investing in Planet Labs satellite technology -Tony Elumelu

Elumelu
  Heirs Holdings, the pan-African proprietary investment company founded by Tony O. Elumelu, CON, has announced its investment in US start-up Planet Labs’ innovative satellite manufacturing technology. Heirs Holdings is the only African investor in the project, which is based in San Francisco.

Planet Labs aims to transform the way imaging of the Earth is carried out, through the introduction of ultra-small satellites called “doves.” These “doves” circle the planet in low orbit and are significantly cheaper to produce and deploy than existing technology.

As part of our business philosophy of Africapitalism, we are committed to supporting entrepreneurs and start-ups to enable them to bring scale to their projects and we look forward to following Planet Labs’ achievements over the coming years.”
