Treasury said it would largely focus on sanctioning people and their personal assets not any businesses they operateBut US officials speaking on condition of anonymity said there was no certainty

false most of the statements made last week Monday by the Minister of Power Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola about the power sector According to them the comments made by the Minister on metering power generation and transmission capacities and stranded electricity among others were significantly distorted Fashola while briefing journalists on the status of Nigeria’s power sector at the headquarters of the Federal Ministry of Power Works and Housing in Abuja last week identified a lot of lapses on the part of the Discos But in a 28-page document released in Abuja on Tuesday the Discos responded directly to about 14 issues raised by the Minister They said Fashola’s ministry had consistently promoted policies that had resulted in sector-wide confusion infringed on the responsibilities of the various sector players The 11 Discos’ joint response to the minister was issued by the Executive Director Research and Advocacy Association of Nigerian Electricity Distributors Sunday Oduntan They said “It is with much regret that we feel compelled to respond to the significantly distorted picture that has been painted of the electricity distribution companies by the minister in his press briefing “This is a contradiction of his convenient assertion now that customers with no meters should turn to the Discos The metering gap a major concern for our customers and us unfortunately has become a politicised issue “As a means of tracking and accounting for our revenues there is no greater interested party in comprehensive metering than the Discos “With the farming out of the responsibility of metering to third party vendors under the Meter Asset Provider regulation enacted by NERC it is our hope that the challenges of estimated billing will be minimised for our customers over time” “To continue to prevent the Discos from receiving the allowable revenue needed to run the sector effectively and turn around and accuse them of not investing in the sector is disingenuous “This is principally the reason the Discos can’t contract directly with the Gencos “The minister ’s position is inconsistent with the facts Indeed the various interferences in the past four years have simply created a continuous shifting of the goal post “We are also left wondering whether such demonising of the Discos is a camouflage for the absence of the effective policy leadership that is desired for implementing the enabling environment that is necessary for the viability and sustainability of the NESI “We recognise that we are on the crux of a political season in which all manner of advantage is being sought by political contenders and we however do not want to be used as the whipping dog to advance other people’s agenda “We do not understand the constant references to the increase of generation capacity to 7 000 MW from 4 000MW for the period of 2015 to 2018 that has been used as the basis of defining the Discos as incapable of taking on more power – the stranded 2 000MW “A review of NERC’s ‘Daily Energy Watch ’ for January 28 2015 would indicate a generation availability of 6 421 MW (divided into peak of 4 230 MW and constrained energy of 2 191MW) “In other words it is misleading to state that available generation has grown from 4000MW in 2015 as a measure of progress given that a volume of generation slightly under 7 000MW already or previously existed prior to the beginning of this administration “Furthermore there is no stranded 2 000MW While there is an available capacity of 7 000MW the best that can be generated at this time is 5 000 MW “This is because there is insufficient gas to power the thermal plants due to gas line limitations (for instance the non -completion of the Oben pipeline) and the absence of a commercial framework that would encourage gas exploration Generation that is constrained by gas amounts to an average 1 500MW daily” The Discos further faulted claims that the Transmission Company of Nigeria currently had capacity to wheel over 5 000MW stressing that in spite of the TCN’s tested wheeling capacity of 5 500 MW with the two historical generation peaks of 5 074 MW recorded on February 2 2016 and 5 222 MW on December 18 2017 only 4 577MW and 4 265 MW were wheeled or transmitted respectively “In simple terms the TCN has not wheeled energy in excess of 4 265 MW ever” the firms added On the assertion by the government on the reconciliation of some of the electricity debts that it owes the Discos described this as troubling They said their position was in the light of the fact that the government continued to owe them for energy that it consumes adding that the debt had continued to grow “contributing to a market shortfall that is estimated to be in excess of N 13 tn on the Discos ’ books” They also said that they had no clarity on the N37 bn government metering initiative that the minister announced some months ago The Permanent Secretary of the Ondo State Local Government Pensions Board Mr Olipede Dare Ezekiel who was arrested by the operatives of the Special Fraud Unit (SFU) in Akure the state capital has debunked the allegation of N60million SURE-P fund misappropriation leveled against him Olipede was arrested last Friday over his alleged involvement in N60million SURE-P fund misappropriation when he was a local government director in Owo Local government The Permanent Secretary described the allegation was sheer falsehood and an embarrassment to his person He said the allegation was maliciously sponsored by his adversaries to tarnish his image and the integrity of the state government that appointed him Olipede who disclosed that he was a director of local government for more than 20 years stressed that he had never received any warning letter not to talk of querry for wrongdoing The Permanent Secretary spoke with reporters in his office at Alagbaka Akure the state capital He said ” I am embarrassed about the allegation of fraud against my person There is no iota of truth the allegation was malicious and a calculated attempt to tarnish my Image and the reputation of the state government that appointed me into office “Before now I have been Director of Local Government for over 20 years and I have never received any warning letter not to talk of querry The issue of SURE-P fund was given to all local governments The money came into being shortly before the 2016 gubernatorial election “ Olipede explained that the last administration in the state doled out N60million to all the 18 local government areas of the state for capital projects He stressed that the said money was judiciously utilized in Owo Local government where he was a Director of administration at that time The Permanent Secretary alleged that some group of people had earlier written a petition against him to the EFCC and the ICPC adding that the matter had been investigated and closed after he was found innocent Olipede hinted that the N60million was spent on visible projects across the length and breath of Owo local government “The government of Dr Olusegun Mimiko gave each Local government N60million in October 2016 for the execution of capital projects in all the 18 local government areas of Ondo state In Owo local government where I was working then the N60million was judiciously utilized “When a petition came principal officers of the local government were invited to the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and explaination was made satisfactorily and the case was closed “The same group of people wrote another petition to the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) and the state government Investigation was also conducted and no one was found guilty “The N60million was spent on visible projects in Owo Local government It included the construction of over 1000 meters line drainages in the nooks and crannies of Owo local government construction of cow market evacuation of refuse dumps in the nooks and crannies of Owo Local government repair of the local government faulty grader renovation of legislative chambers and provision of furniture items provision

wearing seat belts and alcohol was not involved in the crash The road was wet because of rainFisher is about 10 miles west of CrookstonThe dogs – Shih Tzus Maltese and Yorkies and crosses of those breeds – are currently living in foster homes spread out across the region One of the homes is that of 4 Luv of Dog Vice President Amy KrachtThe dogs’ former owner Darcy Darrell Smith 51 of Wheatland waived his rights during a Cass County court hearing Monday to regain custody of the dogs A judge gave custody to the Cass County sheriff who turned the dogs over to 4 Luv of Dog for adoptionProsecutors are still considering criminal charges against Smith"We’re tired" Kracht said Friday afternoon at a fellow rescue worker’s home where some of the dogs were playing in the yardKracht had been up since 4 am answering a mass of emails about the Wheatland dogsThe age of the adoptable dogs ranges from months-old puppies to older dogs of 13 or so although age can be difficult to determine precisely in rescue dogs Many of the dogs suffered neglect and undernourishment before their seizure Some had coats so matted they were immobilized by their furKracht said potential owners can fill out applications online but should be aware the process may take a week to 10 days to complete Each adoption requires an in-home visit with a rescue volunteer to make certain potential owners have fenced spaces and other appropriate arrangements for a dog"Some people are calling up and comparing it to adopting a baby" she said of the adoption process Some people are complaining the process is too involvedThe process was developed to keep dogs from coming back Kracht said because a hasty or poorly thought out adoption could end with an adopted rescue dog being surrendered by its new owner"Sometimes people will make an impulse application" and not tell their spouse they’re doing so she said which rarely ends well for that dog "We do visits to make sure your house – and all the people in it – want the dog"Kracht said one of the most positive outcomes of the coverage surrounding the Wheatland case is that it drew attention to the rescue and its mission of finding homes for the region’s homeless dogsDonations and other help for 4 Luv of Dog are critical in the months to come she said The Wheatland dogs are now the property of the rescue and they will need continued medical care "We’ve gotten some great fosters some great volunteers from this" Kracht saidIn the modern world we try to invent ways of making even the most boring things fun Examples include In-flight entertainment beer yoga and Twenty20 cricket And what could be more boring than studying for a law degree As such it is only natural that you can now do a law course based on the magical world of Harry Potter and his pals Credit: PAThe course starts in December at one of Indias top law universities in Kolkata West Bengal The idea is that students will use their imaginations to draw parallels between the stories in JK Rowlings novels and real-life scenariosFor example the course module draws comparisons between social class issues in India and the enslavement of house-elves and the marginalisation of werewolves in the magical wizard booksOther subject matter includes the ministry of magic the persecution of Tom Riddle the Wizengamot trials and the innocence of Sirius

further students requesting that the class be expandedBut before you start beating yourself with your broomstick for missing out on the opportunity take some comfort from the fact that you never really had the option of doing the course as it is only available as an elective to 4th and 5th year students of the BA LLB (Hons) programme at the National University of Juridical Sciences The course was designed by Professor Shouvik Kumar Guha who said he chose the fantasy novels as the basis for the course due to their unparalleled popularity in India Speaking to the BBC he said: "In our current system we simply tell students the black letter of law"Will they be able to apply pre-existing laws to situations that have never come up before"You can also see so many examples of how media is subverted by political institutions in the Potter books and see parallels in the real world"Rowlings universe talks a lot about how legal institutions are failing in some scenarios"The course module opens with a Potter extract bound to get fantasy wizard nerds salivating:"Are you planning to follow a career in Magical Law Miss Granger" asked Scrimgeour"No Im not" retorted Hermione "Im hoping to do some good in the world"Hermione must be a nightmare to teach the precocious little fart sniffer via GIPHYBut to those reading this thinking the world has just gone mad it hasnt just gone mad – it
