Daily Times Nigeria * Vanguard Newspaper : Nigeria Newspaper
« on: December 07, 2017, 03:04:02 PM »
Daily Times publisher, Mr. Fidelis Anosike has lauded Vanguard newspaper for being Nigeria_s number one on-line news platform, saying that the newspaper should, however, not lose sight of its tradition as an offshoot of the country_s earliest living newspaper, Daily Times.

Talking during an interactive session with Vanguard newspaper management at the company_s corporate headquarters in Lagos, Mr. Anosike said those newspapers that benefited from the old Daily Times should contribute towards ensuring the continuing survival and profit of the brand.

Anosike had in his delegation to Vanguard newspaper, reigning Miss Nigeria, Leesi Peter-Vigboro, Mr. Oliseh Egbunike, General Media Manager, Mr. Biodun Durojaiye, Editor, Daily/Online among others.

He was received by Mr. Gbenga Adefaye, General Manager, Vanguard Media Limited, Mr. Mideno Bayagbon, Editor, among others.

Giving the determination of the new Daily Times management to tap from Vanguard newspaper, Anosike said:

"In terms of heritage and what we must do, we're definitely going to be learning from you, it is an extremely tough and difficult business but the only way we can endure is coming up with programmes like this," Anosike said as he commended Vanguard newspaper for keeping up its leadership position as the state_s number one online platform as evaluated by on-line ranking agency, alexa.com.

Anosike, who said that the new management was laying a solid foundation for continuing growth of the newspaper said:

In relation to the business, we've laid a solid basis that can keep up this paper for the next 90years. But the thought is now how do you assemble it to profitability to the glory of the people that assembled the business."

Also speaking, Miss Nigeria 2016, Miss Peter-Vigboro said her experience as the reigning beauty queen would assemble her into a model who'd be capable of maximally affect her society.

She said: "The advantage of having a 90-year-old paper like Daily Times is that you might have an institution that understands the history of the state. We'll have a library where anyone that wants to research the history of the nation can come to. That's part of the innovation we're bringing because it's linked to Nigeria_s history and heritage."


Robbers attack Vanguard newspaper publisher Sam Amuka by The Nation Newspaper


Guessed armed robbers yesterday invaded the Lagos dwelling of Vanguard publisher Sam Amuka, carting away cash plus some things and injuring him.

The raid was the second on Amuka_s home in about two years.

The octogenarian was allegedly hit by the invaders with an iron rod. He was rushed to some hospital that was private.

Ten suspects detained in connection with the strike are being quizzed at the Special Anti-Robbery Sqaud (SARS), Ikeja.

Detectives were said to be screening all the the estate_s security personnel, domestic staff as well as Amuka_s private guards.

It was gathered that the criminals stormed Amuka_s Anthony Village home at about 1:30am after scaling the high fence that was.

They were said to have broken the burglarproof on one of the windows.

They smashed the ceiling leading to his bedroom where he was found and ordered him to bring _the money_.

The Nation newspaper gathered the criminals tied and overpowered the private guards at Amuka_s compound and held them hostage for over 45 minutes.

According to one of the guards, after covering their faces and tying their hands, four of the armed men went into the building, leaving one to watch them over.

The guard said: "I was on a seat at the entry gate once I saw five young men going from the wall close to the gate towards the home. They were accosted by me but they subdued my mate and me.

" They covered our faces while among them kept watch at the gate over us and tied our hands. Other members of the gang went inside the home and then come out about 45 minutes later and ordered the chief gate to be unlocked by us.

"As soon they left the compound, as we minded them and we heard the screeching of tyres of a car zooming off."

A worker with the Vanguard newspaper, who generally brought dailies to the publisher_s house claimed that he saw an ash colour car sped off as he approached the main gate to deliver yesterday_s dailies.

It was learnt that efforts by the Commander, Rapid Response Squad (RRS), Tunji Disu, an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), to apprehend the criminals were unsuccessful because all the gates leading to Amuka_s spot were locked.

Disu, who was the first cop to arrive at the scene with his guys, were said to have contacted the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) at Anthony, Chima Agha, a Superintendent of Police (SP) to create access, but the bandits had fled before that was achieved.

The Police Commissioner, Mr. Fatai Owoseni, who arrived at the scene much later and also visited _Uncle Sam_ at the hospital, guaranteed that the offenders will be fished out and prosecuted.


Government has close no school in Osun over hijab

The state government_s statement on whether the school was shut or not reads; __ The focus of the Authorities of the State of Osun has been attracted to a publication in the Vanguard variant of now, June 16th, 2016 where it was reported the Baptist High School, Iwo, have been ordered shut by the Authorities.

We've been briefed by the school Principal who stated that not all those who posed for photos with choir robes were students of the school, __While investigations are ongoing. __Those who needed to pose for photographs for the media sense have gone away from the school. That could not have been a rationale for the government to shut down the school. __we're miffed by the report in the Vanguard which said the school was shut. Till this moment, pupils of Baptist High School, Iwo the school where this drama that is instigated has taken place are in their classrooms.

"This, we must state categorically, is not true in all regards. __The Government got the report of moves by some people to cause catastrophe in the school as their own reaction to the judgment of the court which allowed female students to wear hijab as part of accessories to their own school uniform. __What the Government did was to ensure adequate security of the students and teachers while security guys ensured there was no risk to peace while teaching was in progress.

__We are not unaware of the desperate moves by some misguided elements of our society to cause mayhem using the decision of the court on the hijab matter as a tinder box. But we feel that the reputable news organization like yours should keep clear of the actions of such folks for news is meant to be responsible, factual, and unbiased. __We so want to tell Vanguard Newspaper of the urgent need to correct this misinformation.__

Osun religious faceoff - Composed returns hijab-wearing persists

Tension was yesterday doused after two days of what could have developed into spiritual crises following an Osogbo High Court judgement which allowed female Muslim students in the state to wear hijab along with their uniform in public schools in Osun State. Specifically, It was collected that normalcy has returned to Baptist High School, as the pupils of the school attended classes in both hijab and Christian robes Adeeke Iwo which for two days was at the centre of attraction.

In accordance with the source, the meeting which was held at the office of the state Manager of Security Services,DSS, Mr. Ike Madagwana had in attendance the state police commissioner, Mr. Femi Olanipekun, representative of the state government who were the immediate previous commissioners for Tips and Strategy, Hon. Sunday Akere and that of Justice and Attorney general and commissioner for Justice, Mr Wale Afolabi.

Also present at the meeting were representatives of other applicable security agencies and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps NSCDC in the state.

Remarking on the development, the state police Commissioner, Mr. Femi Olanipekun told newsmen that there was a peaceful meeting between the Christian body and the security agencies in the state to restore peace between the Christian and Muslim communities in the state. He stated the Christian body was also advised to live in harmony with Muslims in the state.

A statement signed by the Deputy Governor, Mrs Grace Titi Laoye-Tomori, refused the report that the school at the heart of the controversy, Iwo, Baptist High Chool was ordered shut by the authorities.

According to her; __What the Government did was to ensure adequate security of the students and teachers while security guys ensured while teaching was in progress.__ there was no danger to peace

The development in the school on Wednesday nearly led to physical assault between Muslim and Christian leaders at the gate of the school before the intervention of the traditional ruler of town, Oba AbdulRasheed Akanbi who mediated in the rift. Our generally reliable source told Vanguard that just female Muslim pupils of the school appeared in their typical hijab yesterday in the school while their Christian co-workers came in the normal uniform.

It was further learned the Christian body shifted their location after a marathon meeting with security operatives in the state on Wednesday to find away out of the catastrophe before it snow balls into religious war between the Muslims and Christians in the state.

Also,representatives of the All Progressive Congress APC in the state, government officials on Wednesday night held a meeting with the state Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, on how to conclude the problem of hijab wearing by female Muslim students in public secondary schools in the state.

NSCIA, MSSN declare open support for Osun Muslims

Meantime, the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs and Muslim Students_ Society of Nigeria have expressed disappointment over the reaction of Christian Association of Nigeria after a court judgement granting Muslims the right to wear hijab (Muslims headscarf) in public schools in Osun State.

While the Secretary General of the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, described the action of CAN as malicious, MSSN National and Lagos State Amirs (Presidents), Mallam Jameel Muhammad and Saheed Ashafa respectively labeled it an effort to cause violence.

They spoke at the Grand Finale of the 14th Biennial Qur_an Memorisation Contest. Oloyede accused of plotting to make Muslims illiterates in the country by supposedly asking them to not cover their heads CAN,. He said I don't see how hijab being worn by a Muslim lady is offensive to others. If our sisters in the catholic could go out in their own dress and it's also not offensive to Muslims, then they (Christians) should take Muslims too.

"I think we're having anti faith tendency. I am mindful that there is a case against National Youth Service Corps by a catholic lady who was requested to wear what was unacceptable to her. So, it's not just Muslims. As far as NSCIA is concerned, we cannot because we're Nigerians be de- islamised Oloyede said neither Christians nor Muslims have the right to resort to violence in a bid.

In Osun State, the National Amir of MSSN, Mallam Jameel Muhammad, urged Muslims on his part to resist the _provocative_ activities of CAN, saying, "We don_t need to be violent using them. We should be law abiding and not be deflected with statements which can be not incapable of causing madness." He also faulted the decision of some judges to refer Muslim pupils in Lagos State into a special court for constitutional interpretation on whether or not Hijab should be permitted in Lagos State public schools.
