    Zverev, Busta set up semi-final clash in Miami, Anderson out

    Fourth seed Alexander Zverev overcame a slow start on Thursday to wear down Borna Coric 6-4 6-4 and set up a Miami Open semi-final against Pablo Carreno Busta, who earlier defeated Kevin Anderson.

    After a power failure delayed the start of the match by more than an hour, Zverev faced two break points in the second game but then settled down and took command.

    One break in each set was enough for the German to clinch his first win in three career attempts against the Croat.

    Zverev advances to a Friday semi-final against Spanish 16th seed Carreno Busta, who survived a match point to upset South African sixth seed Anderson 6-4 5-7 7-6(6).

    The other semi-final pits Argentine fifth seed Juan Martin del Potro against American 14th seed John Isner.

    Zverev did not use the power failure as an excuse for his slow start.

    I didnt particularly care, he said, adding that he spent the time watching an NBA game on a locker room television.

    I think I lost the first six points of the match. It wasnt the best start. Im just happy to get through.

    For Carreno Busta, who arrived on court in fine form having dropped only 12 games over his previous tee matches, the win was his first in five meetings against Anderson and avenged his fourth-round Indian Wells loss to the world number eight.

    It was an amazing match, no? Carreno Busta said.

    He played some unbelievable points, passing shots.

    I lost to him, 7-6 in the third set (at Indian Wells). And today, well, at the beginning of the match I started playing really good, returning good, serving good, being very aggressive.

    Anderson saved a pair of match points in the second set and shifted momentum in his favor but Carreno Busta, seeded 16th at Crandon Park, regrouped in the decider where the two players stayed on serve until the tiebreak.

    Carreno Busta was staring at defeat when 6-5 down in the tiebreak but was let off the hook when Anderson missed with a forehand.

    From there the South African pushed a backhand volley wide and then mishit a second serve that handed the win to Carreno Busta after two hours, 42 minutes.

    Anderson, whose year already includes an ATP Tour title at the New York Open and runner-up finishes in Acapulco and Pune, has now lost all 10 of his quarter-final matches at the Masters 1000 level the highest-tiered tournaments after the four grand slams.

    Ostapenko books Miami final with Stephens
    French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko will meet US Open champion Sloane Stephens in the Miami Open final after putting a decisive end to American qualifier Danielle Collins dream run.

    The match will be played at 18.00 Nigerian time on Saturday.

    The 20 year-old Latvian needed just two sets and just under two hours to defeat Collins 7-6(1), 6-3, and become the youngest player to reach the Miami final since 2009, when 19-year-old Victoria Azarenka claimed the title.

    Her opponent Collins came into the matchup having already played almost 12 hours of tennis in Miami alone, battling through two rounds of qualifying to bring her total of matches to seven. Along the way shes knocked out the likes of childhood hero and No.8 seed Venus Williams as well as CoCo Vandeweghe and Monica Puig, putting together a fairytale run into the semifinals.

    But she finally met her match in Latvian powerhouse Ostapenko, who notched wins over No.9 seed Petra Kvitova and No.4 Elina Svitolina in to register multiple Top 10 wins in the same tournament for the first time in her career.

    Ostapenko found herself under pressure from the get-go against Collins gutsy tennis. The American was crushing the returns and brought up five break opportunities in Ostapenkos first two service games alone, pushing her to deuce seven times.

    But despite the pressure it was the Latvian who broke first, getting ahead with a break to love at 3-1 on a sloppy Collins service game. Collins was undaunted, and kept apace with Ostapenkos heavy hitting the gambit worked and she broke straight back to level the score.

    The pair stayed toe-to-toe as they marched into the first set tiebreak. Here it was Ostapenko who has yet to lose a tiebreak here in Miami that rose to the occasion, extending that record against Collins. She played almost perfect tennis to snap up four points in a row and allow her opponent just one point, closing it out 7-1.

    Ostapenko carried the momentum into the second set, starting off with a break right away. Although Collins was able to create seven break chances in the first set converting two she wasnt able to make a dent at all on the Ostapenko serve in the second set. Instead the big-hitting Latvian bracketed the set with another break of serve to finish, closing out the match after an hour and 41 minute battle.

    Through to the final without dropping a set, the win guarantees Ostapenko will reach a new career-high ranking come Monday, jumping up one spot to World No.4. I think now Im playing more consistent and Im just really happy to be here,she said.

    Shehu Sani, 2 Kaduna senators block El-Rufais $350m loan request
    The three senators from Kaduna state, led by Shehu Sani on Thursday blocked the approval for a $350million loan request by Governor Nasir El-Rufai.

    It was like a vengeance of sort as all the senators spoke against the loan.

    El-Rufai has had a very poor relationship with the trio, even demolishing the home of one of them Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi, used as an office for a faction of the All Progressives Congress in the state.

    The position of the senators was clearly demonstrated during the debate at the Senate on Thursday before the rejection of the loan request.

    Too bad for the governor. His most trenchant political opponent, Senator Shehu Sani heads the Senate Committee on Local and Foreign Loans and Debts.

    In the report presented as the Chairman of the Committee, Senator Shehu Sani, said the committee rejected the request.

    Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi and Danjuma Lai, also spoke against the approval of the loan.

    The committee said if approved, the loan will make the state the second most indebted in the country.

    Sani said the loan obtained by the state from 1960 till now was $232 million, adding that if approved, the additional $350 million will bring the states indebtedness to $582 million.

    Easter: Lets emulate virtues of Christ  Saraki

    As the World celebrates Easter, the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has called on Christians and Nigerians across the nation to work towards emulating the virtues of Jesus Christ as epitomized by his passion, persecution, death and resurrection.

    In a message signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, in Abuja, Saraki also stated that all Nigerians must remain constant in their efforts to promote unity across all lines.

    He noted that it was imperative for all Nigerians to come together in order to build a country that both present and future generations can take pride in just like the work of Christ which has endured for over 2000 years and has continued to inspire generations.

    This weekend, we join our Christian brothers and sisters in Nigeria and across the world to celebrate the Easter festivities.

    This commemoration is a time for deep reflection as it marks the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and his victory over death. It is a time to reach out to our brothers and sisters in need.

    It is also a time for all of us regardless of faith, or ethnicity to come together to pray for the peace of our nation.

    We must all remain constant in our efforts to promote unity across all lines because united, our nation remains stronger and we thrive as a people.

    As we do this, we must all collectively work towards playing our part in the development of our nation and its economy, Saraki stated.

    Security chiefs warn of plans to disrupt 2019 election process

    The Security operatives have raised the alarm of plans by some groups to disrupt the processes leading to the 2019 elections.

    The evil plan, according to security, was for the groups to create a stalemate.

    They warned the media against the activities of some unregistered groups that had lately been active in trying to undermine critical institutions such the law-enforcement agencies and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

    Malam Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, in a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday, said the security chieftains made this known at an interactive meeting with owners and decision makers in the media industry.

    The meeting which was held at the State House Conference Centre in Abuja on Tuesday, was addressed by the Directors-General of the Department of State Services, Mr. Lawal Daura , and his counterpart in National Intelligence Agency, Mr. Ahmed RufaI as well as the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Gabriel Olonisakin.

    The security heads, however, assured that security situation in the country was within the control of the government but could be helped where the media reduced sensation from their daily coverage.

    In their own assessment, our state of national security is not as bad as it is painted by the media.

    Shehu said: In seeking the support from the media towards the achievement of security for everyone, the heads of the agencies emphasized that sharing and coordination among security agencies and the media is essential to counter the ever-changing threats faced by the nation.

    The security chieftains also called for closer cooperation from the media to prevent terrorists and radical ideologies directed from abroad from undermining the ongoing efforts to restore security in parts of the country facing the challenges of terrorism, economic sabotage, criminality, farmers-herdsmen clashes and the spread of illegal weapons.

    In a special submission by the NIA, its Director-General, Ahmed RufaI, recalled unsavoury developments of the last one year, which had put the agency in a negative limelight, but said that such developments were not peculiar to the Agency.

    Similar institutions across the world have passed through this phase. What is, however, important is for the right lessons to be learnt from these developments.

    I see these challenges as impetus to reposition the Agency for effective service delivery in realization of its core mandate, as a critical component of our National Security Architecture, he said.

    He appealed for media support to enable the agency to reform and remain focused on tackling the challenges of international nature facing the nation which included terrorism and violent extremism manifested in activities of Boko Haram (BH), ISIS, AQIM, Al Shabaab, Al Qaeda, Ansaru, among others.

    He said the nation also faced threats from the human trafficking and illegal migration, smuggling, slavery, forced labour, prostitutions, drugs trafficking, activities of drug cartels and their networks, as well as trafficking in small arms and light weapons (SALW).

    He pledged that the NIA would henceforth accord much attention toward addressing the challenges of financial Crimes, identification of financial resources and properties suspected to be obtained by corrupt means belonging to Nigerians especially Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs).

    RufaI said Herdsmen and Farmers clashes, cattle rustling etc; Piracy and Militancy, particularly in the Niger Delta: Oil theft, illegal oil bunkering, pipeline vandalism; and Cyber Crimes/ Cyber security: activities of online fraudsters and hacking would also receive priority attention.

    The intelligence and security chieftains also expressed the view that the Nigerian media has a role in securing Nigerias national interest.

    This expected role of the press is in tandem with global best practices, particularly on issues that have bearing on national security, they observed.

    They, therefore, invited the media as partners to continue to be security conscious and exercise restraint in disseminating information that could expose the Services to ridicule or harm our National Security.

    They therefore maintained that prior consultation with appropriate members of the Intelligence Community is the best way to go.(NAN)

    Saraki mourns, extols late Jibrin
    By Ifeanyi Nwoko

    President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has expressed sadness over the Jibrin, the Deputy Leader of the House of Representatives, who died in the early hours of Friday.

    In posts on his social media pages, Saraki said that Nigeria has lost another seasoned legislator and champion of the common man.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the family and constituents of the late Rt. Hon Umar Buba Jibrin, deputy leader of the House of Representatives, who passed away early this morning.

    As a former Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Jibrin, was a seasoned legislator and a conscientious lawmaker who always put the interests of the common man first and championed them at the federal level. He will be greatly missed.

    My deep condolences go out to Speaker Dogara, his colleagues in the House of Representives and the government and people of Kogi State over this great loss, Saraki said.

    My deep condolences also go out to Speaker Dogara and the government and people of Kogi State over the loss of Hon. Jibril.

    May the Almighty forgive his shortcomings and grant him a place amongst the righteous ones in Aljannah Firdaus. Amin.

    Bukola Saraki (@bukolasaraki)

    Jibril, a three time member of the house, died in the early hours of Saturday in Abuja, one of his political associates, Mr Amuda Dan Sulaiman confirmed to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) .

    He was until his death, the Deputy Majority Leader of the house, as a member of the All Progressives Congress.
    He was also a former Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly.

    Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello expressed deep shock over the demise of Jibril, who he described as one of the states most astute politicians.

    Bello described the late Jibril as a man who lived in the hearts of his people, saying the vacuum he left in the state and the ruling party will be difficult to fill, according to a statement by Kingsley Fanwo, the Director General of Media and Publicity.

    Presidency to PDP: Apology not enough, return your loot
    The Nigerian Presidency has advised Nigerians to be cautious of the less-than-honest apology offered by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Mr. Uche Secondus.

    It rebuffed the opposition partys apology and instead asked it and its members to return the money stolen from the public till, during the partys 16 years in the saddle.

    In a statement Malam Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari, said PDPs apology should be seen in the context of a former ruling party which is desperate to recapture power because it no longer has unhindered access to national resources for private uses.

    The PDP has not even acknowledged the fact that it plundered the national economy, and for a party that dismissed the anti-corruption war as a political witch hunt, it is impossible to believe that its public apology comes from the bottom of the heart.

    Shehudescribed as apt an earlier statement by the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, that there are heavy moral duties that go with apologies if the culprits want to be taken seriously.

    Even desperate thieves apologise because they are caught and not because they are incapable of repeating the crime if they had another opportunity.

    We believe that the PDP should not only apologise for the imposition of candidates, and the culture of impunity, but must also come clean and acknowledge that they participated in large scale corruption and massive diversions of public funds to private pockets while poverty was ravaging the ordinary Nigerians.

    We challenge individual PDP leaders to publicly and voluntarily tell Nigerians how much they stole and then agree to cough up their illegal acquisitions of wealth if they want their apology to be taken seriously.

    Apology borne by desperation to recapture power without a desire to admit how much they stole and the reluctance to return the loot is morally hollow. This goes beyond rebranding. Nigerians are not interested in brands. They want their money back.

    For such apology to gain acceptance, the offenders must first of all show remorse; then return that which was unlawfully taken or restore the damage caused the nation; and commit to never doing the wrong they did again. The PDP has done none of these for them to be taken seriously by anyone.

    Instead of addressing this cogent issue raised by the Minister, the PDP veered off to accuse this administration of borrowing money but failed, in that regard to admit that they borrowed to steal, while Buhari administration is borrowing to set up long-delayed infrastructure.

    They accused the President of unevenness, of inflaming ethnic and religious tensions, when it is on record that they gave this country its divisive president who chose the hallowed premises of places of worship to read important national statements.

    President Buhari never fails in his duty as the Chief Security Officer of the nation. He acts fast whenever and wherever there are incidents by ordering law-enforcement agencies to do their job and fact-finding mission to give him actionable reports.

    PDPs uncaring attitude to these matters, including the kidnapping of 270 girls from Chibok is the hallmark of the long years of misrule.

    Another issue of moral and political significance is about the recent disclosure by US investigators that the PDP government engaged in massive data theft that included the hacking of Candidate Muhammadu Buharis personal data before the last general elections. PDPs continued silence on this reprehensible heist only goes to confirm their remorselessness even as more and more facts are emerging that the same unfair method was the modus operandi that they used to capture political power in the 2017 elections.

    Lagos  to introduce 5,000 new buses
    Lagos is to introduce 5,000 new buses and 13 terminals as part of its plan to improve the it transport sector.

    The state is also to introduce an assembly plant for the production of buses, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, said this during the inauguration of the Ikeja Bus Terminal alongside President Muhammadu Buhari.

    He said the plan of the government is to introduce the buses within a space of three years and also introduce 820 environment-friendly buses before the last quarter of 2018.

    The Ikeja Bus Terminal is one of our flagship transport infrastructure under the State Bus Reform Initiative.

    The first phase of this programme will see 13 new Bus terminals introduced including major terminals at Oshodi, Yaba, Ojota, Agege and the already completed Tafawa Balewa Bus Terminal.

    We have commenced the introduction of 5,000 new buses into the Lagos economy in the next 3 years.

    We will inject 820 environmentally-friendly high capacity buses in the first phase of this reform by September 2018, 300 New Bus Stops, 3 Bus Depots, and Intelligent Transport System which will aid Lagosians to plan their journeys on our public transport system, he said.

    Furthermore, the governor explained that the success of the state largely depends on the efficiency of the transport system, hence the need to invest more in the sector even beyond road transport.

    This according to him, will help to meet the connectivity and mobility needs of Lagos residents as well as promote healthy lifestyles.

    Our concentration is not only on bus/road transportation. We are promoting Non-Motorised Transport such as walking and cycling paths to give our people modal choices while promoting healthy living.

    Work is ongoing on the 27-kilometre Blue Line Rail project from Okokomaiko West of Lagos to Marina in Central Lagos. We are in discussions with various investors and stakeholders on our urban rail project, the Red Line from Alagbada to Marina.

    The success of a highly populated, cosmopolitan smart city-State like Lagos is strongly dependent on the efficiency of its transportation system.

    We are committed to a functional, efficient and integrated transport system which will support our population and facilitate our commerce and we will continually work till we achieve this objective and we will always count on your usual support, , he said.
