NairaBet Owner Denies Community Transformer for Asking for Bribes

The lawmaker representing Egbeda/Ona Ara Federal constituency of Oyo State, Akin Alabi has revealed why he asked a transformer to be taken to another community instead of the initial place intended.

The Nairabet founder said that the “youths” in the community demand they are “settled” so he ordered it to be taken to another community who needs it.

I bought a transformer for a community that requested for it in my constituency. When the delivery people got there, the “youths” there said they must “settle” boys before they drop it. They called me and I told them to take it to another community that asked as well. Their loss.

Akin had earlier revealed that he would use his personal funds to buy transformers for Egbeda Town when one of his followers requested so.

However, Nigerians have started reacting to his gesture narrating how some individuals and companies are making efforts to either repair roads or power but the youths and/or their community leadership request for money instead of accepting the offer.

I remember negotiating with a community in the lekki axis on behalf of a client who owned a factory and wanted to build a proper road from his factory to the Lekki expressway. The Baale demanded we pay 12M for the privilege, mind you the existing road was untarred w/out gutters

Corona Virus: US Seeks Medical Professionals for Visa Appointment

The United States has asked medical professionals around the world who want to work in America to reach out for visa appointment.

On Thursday, the United States overtook China as the country with the highest number of novel coronavirus patients anywhere in the world.


To further tame the spread of the virus and treatment of those infected, the US is calling out to medical professionals to apply to work in the North American country.

“We encourage medical professionals seeking to work in the United States on a work or exchange visitor, particularly those working to treat or mitigate the effects of COVID-19, to reach out to the nearest embassy or consulate to request a visa appointment,” the statement read.

The US is also extending visas for medical professionals in the country.

“For those foreign medical professionals already in the United States: J-1 Alien Physicians (medical residents) may consult with their program sponsor, ECFMG, to extend their programs in the United States.

“Generally, a J-1 program for a foreign medical resident can be extended one year at a time for up to seven years.

Note that the expiration date on a U.S. visa does not determine how long one can be in the United States.”
