Under the country’s system of government, a Maronite Christian occupies the post.
In a speech to lawmakers after he was sworn in, Mr. Aoun addressed security, the economy and the repatriation of more than one million refugees from neighboring Syria as some of the main challenges facing Lebanon, a country of 4.3 million people, according to the United Nations.

Hon. Yussuf Attah, the Majority Leader of the Assembly, who read the Kidnapping, Abduction and Forced Labour Amendment Bill 2016 before the Assembly today Monday, October 31, said the committee of the whole Assembly passed the bill after considering the amendment.

Again, Iheanacho named as Europe’s most clinical striker per minute

And now after last weekend’s games across Europe, BBC Sport in their survey chose the Super Eagles’ striker as the deadliest striker vin the continent judging by the same criteria.

Iheanacho has made waves since debuting for the Manchester City first team in the 2015-16 season. He had never played a competitive game of football and even had minimal experience in the English youth system after City signed him from Nigeria’s Taye Academy in 2014.

Obafemi Martins signed an outrageous contract with Chinese club

OBA GOAL’ one-year extension will reportedly pay him equivalent of $12-15 million.
Obafemi Martins’ move to China hasn’t always been smooth, but it has been undeniably lucrative and it’s about to get even more so.
The former Seattle Sounders forward has reportedly signed a contract extension that will keep him at Shanghai Shenhua through 2017 and net him about $9 million. If Martins were still playing in MLS he’d need to be paid about $12-15 million in order to net that much, almost double what the highest paid players in the league get. It’s enough to put him safely in the Top 10 among the top paid players in the English Premier League.
Martins joined Shanghai Shenhua last February and was due to make about $6.6 million on a nine-moth deal. But he got off to a slow start, going scoreless in his first seven appearances and having just one goal through 11 matches while mostly coming off the bench.
After a season-ending injury to Demba Ba, however, Martins was suddenly starting and scoring. In the 11 games since Ba’s injury, he has scored six of his nine goals, and has helped Shanghai go 6-1-5 in CSL play to move to fourth in the table.

Clinton Email Saga, why Comey's decisions raises more question than answer

 A look at FBI Comey's decisions in the Clinton email case

America still learning how to deal with national issues and avoid chaos 

The FBI's announcement that it recently came upon new emails possibly pertinent to the Hillary Clinton email investigation raised more questions than answers.

Mimiko, Ondo Gov.
The first elections under the 1979 constitution were held on schedule in July and August 1979, and the FMG handed over power to a new civilian government under President Shehu Shagari on October 1, 1979. Nigeria's Second Republic was born amid great expectations. Oil prices were high and revenues were on the increase. It appeared that unlimited development was possible. Unfortunately, the euphoria was short-lived, and the Second Republic did not survive its infancy.
Five major parties competed for power in the first elections in 1979. As might be expected, there was some continuity between the old parties of the First Republic and the new parties of the Second Republic. The National Party of Nigeria (NPN), for example, inherited the mantle of the Northern
