He also said that workers that gained employment into the state civil service with fake certificates would be prosecuted.

The governor, however, said that workers found guilty of altering their birth dates would be pardoned.
Bello, who commended the committee that carried out the exercise, said that issues relating to the 14-months verification exercise had finally been laid to rest with the submission of the report.
The governor promised to implement the recommendations in the report, and described the exercise as one of the "surgical operations" his administration had to embark upon toward effective service delivery.

Earlier, John Ayuba, Chairman of the staff screening and verification appeal committee, said that the committee was initially expected to attend to 32,753 workers, but ended up with 39,144
Ayuba, Director of Studies at the Administrative Staff College of Nigeria (ASCON), said that the committee identified 44 problems that were common to workers that appeared before it.

He listed the problems to include fake certificates, irregular promotion and appointments, disregard for civil service rules, inappropriate qualifications for people already in high places, among others.

The Chairman cited the case of some civil servants with primary school leaving certificates, who rose to become directors, and described the situation as strange.

Pharrell Williams has made history by becoming Chanel's first bag campaign male model.
A short film featuring the "Happy" singer dancing around in an empty concert hall and strutting his stuff while promoting the brand's newest Chanel Gabrielle bag was just released by the French fashion house.

The Grammy winner also appears to walk on a precarious beam in mid-air, nearly dropping the high-end handbag as he attempts to regain his balance.
The 44-year-old was announced as the first ever frontman of a Chanel handbag campaign in March, just months after he walked the catwalk for the iconic label's Metiers d'Art runway show in Paris in December.

Creative director Karl Lagerfeld unveiled the handbag project exclusively to WWD, noting actress Kristen Stewart and model-turned-movie star Cara Delevingne would also be starring in the campaign, along with French star Caroline de Maigret.
Karl specifically chose Pharrell to promote the Gabrielle tote to emphasise to fans the bag can be worn in "many different circumstances" by different people.

"It's not very feminine in the sense of being chichi," Karl stressed.
Pharrell is all the rage in France's fashion scene at the moment – last month he was awarded the prestigious Officier des Arts et des Lettres Award by French Minister of Culture Audrey Azoulay, who honored the star for his contribution to the arts in a ceremony held during Paris Fashion Week.

For this reason, he had to be flown to America for medical check-up.
Tekno's manager, Ubi Franklin in a chat with Punch has revealed that Tekno's illness is not life threatening.

In his words;

"He has a medical condition that he had to travel abroad to treat so that the issue does not deteriorate. Although he was at AY live and he performed, I literally had to wear his clothes for him before he could perform. His illness is not life threatening but he had to travel abroad to ensure that he is thoroughly checked and properly catered for. He would not be away from the scene for too long and I am sure he should be back in two weeks,".

After dropping his latest chart-topping album More Life in March, Drake has been mostly quiet. No tour announcement, no videos, no in-depth interviews. Besides a surprise guest appearance at Coachella , Drake has been about as silent as the biggest musician in the world can be at any given moment. Even while laying low, the 6 God has teamed up with the NBA to officially announce some major news, confirming that he will be hosting the first-ever NBA Awards show this June in at Basketball City at Pier 36 in New York City.

Along with Drake hosting, the TNT broadcast of the show will "feature integrations with the Sports Emmy Award-winning Inside the NBA studio team of Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O'Neal, along with the league's biggest stars, celebrity presenters and musical performances," according to a press release. The NBA Awards will feature presentations of the Most Valuable Player, Rookie of the Year, Sixth Man, Defensive Player of the Year, Most Improved Player and Coach of the Year awards.

Drake previously announced his role as the host and as a producer of the show in a podcast with Kentucky men's basketball coach John Calipari back in January. Clearly, he jumped the gun, and even prefaced the announcement with "I don't even know if I'm allowed to say this," but now it's official, and after how well he did when he hosted the ESPYs back in 2014 he should be more than ready to entertain when the NBA Awards on TNT airs on Monday, June 26.

Former Wimbledon FC captain, John Fashanu, says the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) should be blamed over the nation's inability to lure Dele Alli to play for the Super Eagles instead of the Three Lions of England.

Dele Alli joined Tottenham Hotspurs two year ago from MK Dons, a team Fashanu has strong links with and the teenager is now proving his worth in his first season at White Hart Lane and now an England international.
Fashanu in a chat with revealed he could have been playing for Nigeria as he made contact with the teenager during his loan spell at MK Dons but got zero support from the NFF in trying to woo him.

"I used my connections at the team to get through to him (Alli) and we spoke at length but he request we meet his dad as he was just 17 then and too young to make such a decision," he told owngoalnigeria.

"However when I got through to the NFF as I need travel with them to have talks with his parents, nobody was willing to listen to me as they were back then involved in a power tussle, that was how we lost Alli to England."
Alli was a key player for England at the last European championship took place in France last year.

The United States government has disclosed that it has spent $75 million annually in the last four years to combat the malaria scourge in Nigeria.
The US Deputy Chief of Mission, David J. Young disclosed this at its embassy in Abuja.

He said: "Today, April 25, people across the World would lend their voices and renew commitments as part of global events to control malaria."
He disclosed that Nigeria had also received approximately $419 million from the U.S. government President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) between 2010 and 2016.

According to him, Nigeria received the largest PMI budget among the 19 PMI countries in Africa. The PMI is led by United States Agency for International Development, USAID and complemented by the Centre for Disease Control (CDC).

Young restated the US government's commitment to the global movement to end malaria and urged stakeholders to play their roles to achieve the goal.
He stressed the need to end the malaria scourge to prevent more than 80 million estimated illnesses and 300,000 related deaths annually.

He said: "Ending malaria would increase school attendance, boost worker productivity and significantly lower out-of-pocket cost for treatment."
He added that this explained why malaria prevention and control had remained the major objective of the US foreign assistance.

Young stressed that the huge numbers of illnesses and deaths, motivated the PMI and USAID to commit itself to raising the awareness about the proper prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease.

He said experts had warned that early and accurate diagnosis was essential for rapid and effective disease management and surveillance.
He stressed that malaria diagnosis was important, as any misdiagnosis would allow the disease's progression from uncomplicated to severe forms, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality.

French Montana announced the collab while on the phone with Max B (from prison) & Funk Flex.

Although he remains locked up for charges stemming from 2009 on a 12-count indictment, Max B is still making waves from behind bars.
On Monday night, Max B was able to hop on the phone with Funkmaster Flex & French Montana from prison and acknowledge that he should be getting out sometime soon. When Flex asked him if he was coming home soon, Max replied "Yea man. God is good brotha.

I'm working on it. Miss y'all out there."
Unfortunately he didn't give us any time frame as for when that would be, but while on the phone, Flex & French were talking about the party they were going to throw for Max when he gets out, and that's when French spilled the news on their upcoming collab as well.

"Hold on Flex. Im 'bout to tell you now. Max B, French Montana, The Weeknd , produced by Harry Fraud . Dropping last week of May" he announced. It's unclear if Max will be out of prison at that time or if they just rolling out the single regardless, but we'll definitely be waiting for it.

( AllHipHop Rumors ) Well there are always three sides to every story, so I can't wait to see who's telling the truth here.

Word on the curb is that Instagram thot model Layla Lace's claims of being pregnant by Drake are completely fabricated!

Layla recently made public claims that Drake got her pregnant and started to dodge her once she told him. Lace claims that they met up in London and had sex, and when she reached out to the 6 God and told him they had a baby on the way, he jumped ship.
According to TMZ , sources close to Drake say that Drake has never met the woman, and his team never even reached out to her or threatened her with a lawsuit. They claim she made it all up for attention.
Layla has since deleted the social media posts, and Drake's team believes she did this because she received the attention she was looking for.

It's crazy that people really do make up things and publicity stunts for attention. Then again Drizzy is known to hit these Insta thots models raw [see
Jhonni Blaze ]. Who do you think is telling the truth?
