The COP28, UN Climate Change Conference in Dubai, with recorded 97,000 participants, should not become a model for the future in terms of attendance, head of the UN Development Programme, Achim Steiner, said.

“I personally believe that these conferences have become too big,’’ he said in an interview with DPA in Dubai on Monday.

But Steiner said he did not want to tell anyone not to take part.

“And if a country like the United Arab Emirates has the opportunity to organise such a large conference, then I don’t think that’s our biggest problem.”

However, it should be borne in mind that the growth of conferences means a lot of effort, time and costs.

It could become more difficult to find host countries to accommodate around 100,000 people and provide a conference site for them, Steiner said.

Commenting on the debate among the 200 or so countries on whether a formal decision should be made to phase out coal, oil and gas, Steiner said “It will be very important to see whether this conference ultimately manages to recognise that the age of fossil fuels is over.’’

There will be arguments about the wording and about timelines, he said.

“But ultimately it’s about recognising that the future of our energy and transport systems will no longer be based on fossil fuels,’’ Steiner said.

He added that, the whole world senses and knows that the decarbonisation of our economies has become inevitable.

This year’s UN Climate Change Conference, hosted by the United Arab Emirates in Dubai, has been the largest ever staged.

According to the UN Climate Change Secretariat, 97,372 people were registered on site, including around 52,000 state delegates as well as observers and almost 4,000 journalists.

This makes the conference almost twice as large as its predecessor in Egypt, which hosted the largest climate conference to date with around 50,000 participants.

Gunmen kidnapped two landlords in the Federal Capital Territory’s Asokoro expansion neighborhood on Sunday.

The terrorists are seeking N20 million in ransom to free the captives.

According to our source, armed guys pointed a gun at one of the area’s landlords, whom they utilized to get access to a victim.

A resident of the area named James told our correspondent that the other victim was on his way into his house when he was kidnapped by the armed men.

He said, “It happened around 11pm on Sunday. Because of the heat, one of the landlords slept outside. They saw him and pointed a gun to his head. They asked him to take them to his house, and he showed them but they were not satisfied with the kind of house he lives in.

“There were other big houses next to his house. So, they went with him and asked him to knock on the gate of one of the houses. When he knocked, as a well-known neighbour, the gate was opened for him. That was how they accessed the man’s house and kidnapped him.

“The second landlord had issues with his car and came home with a motorcycle. He was about to enter his house when they attacked him and whisked him away.”

The source noted that the kidnappers had reached out to the families and demanded N20m to release the landlords.

He said, “Two hours after their operation, they called the two families to pay N10m each. One of the families pleaded to pay N2m and assured them that they would get it almost immediately, but they rejected and instead threatened to kill him if the N10m is not complete.”

The FCT Police spokesperson, Josephine Adeh, could not be reached for comment as of the time of filing this report.

The Asokoro Commander of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria, Mohammed Seidu, confirmed the incident to our correspondent, adding that effort was ongoing with the police to rescue the victims.

“Policemen attached to the Asokoro Police Station are aware of the matter. We have been combing the nearby bushes to see if we can rescue them,” he said.

Following planned maintenance by the Transmission Company of Nigeria in its Kubwa substation, several portions of the Federal Capital Territory will be without electricity for several hours on Monday.

Ndidi Mbah, TCN’s General Manager of Public Affairs, announced this in a statement late Sunday night.

According to her, maintenance of its three 33kV feeders in Kubwa Substation will begin Monday at 10:00 a.m. and will go until 5 p.m.

Consequently, the power supply from Abuja Distribution Company to Kubwa, Bwari and its environs will be interrupted for maintenance.

“The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) wishes to announce that its crew will perform scheduled maintenance on three 33kV feeders in Kubwa Substation. Maintenance will commence on Monday, 4 December, 2023, from 10.00 am to 5:00 pm.

“Consequently, there will be power interruption on the feeders mentioned, affecting power supply through AEDC to its customers within Kubwa, Bwari and environs for seven hours tomorrow.

“Power supply will be restored to the affected areas as soon as maintenance is completed,” the statement reads.


An American warship and multiple commercial ships came under attack Sunday in the Red Sea, the Pentagon said, potentially marking a major escalation in a series of maritime attacks in the Mideast linked to the Israel-Hamas war.

“We’re aware of reports regarding attacks on the USS Carney and commercial vessels in the Red Sea and will provide information as it becomes available,” the Pentagon said.

The British military earlier said there had been a suspected drone attack and explosions in the Red Sea, without elaborating.

The Pentagon did not identify where it believed the fire came from. However, Yemen’s Houthi rebels have been launching a series of attacks on vessels in the Red Sea, as well as launching drones and missiles targeting Israel as it wages war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.


A company in China is refining leftover hotpot oil so it can be transformed into sustainable jet fuel.

At an upmarket restaurant in the hotpot-loving Chinese city of Chengdu, diners plunge sliced meat and vegetables into cauldrons of spicy, oily broth, largely unaware that their leftovers are set to take on a second life as jet fuel.

With around 150,000 tonnes of used hotpot oil thrown out by restaurants in the city each year, local business Sichuan Jinshang Environmental Protection has found a niche processing the greasy waste and exporting it to be turned into aviation fuel.

“Our motto is, let oil from the gutter soar in the sky,” Ye Bin, the company’s general manager, told AFP.

Ye said his company, which launched in 2017, was now producing up to 150,000 tonnes of industrial-grade oil annually from a combination of hotpot restaurants and other eateries across Chengdu, including KFC outlets.

On a typical night, collectors hired by Jinshang visit hundreds of these restaurants around the southwestern metropolis.

The process begins right after customers leave, with waiters emptying their hotpot broth — so rich it is used purely as a cooking medium — into a special filter that separates oil from water.

Donning thick aprons and elbow-length rubber gloves, collectors then arrive to pick up jerrycans of the scarlet grease.

“It’s a great job — I play mahjong during the day and work at night,” one collector named Zheng told AFP as he packed a minivan with containers of the pungent sludge.

That sludge is then ferried to a business park on the city’s outskirts where Jinshang’s mostly spotless plant is based.

The only trace of the oil there is a faint scent of hotpot at the unloading dock and telltale orange stains at the bottom of some equipment.

The oil is piped into massive vats and undergoes a refining process that removes remaining water and impurities, resulting in a clear, yellow-tinged industrial-grade oil.

That is exported to clients based mainly in Europe, the United States and Singapore, who further process it to make what industry insiders call “sustainable aviation fuel” (SAF).

SAFs are critical to decarbonising the aviation sector, which was responsible for two percent of global energy-related CO2 emissions in 2022, according to the International Energy Agency.

But they are still not widely used — making up less than 0.1 percent of all aviation fuels consumed — because of processing costs and the relatively small number of suppliers.

The International Air Transport Association estimates their widespread adoption could “contribute around 65 percent of the reduction in emissions needed by aviation to reach net-zero in 2050”.

Jinshang has plans to expand into its own SAF-producing facility soon, using equipment from US firm Honeywell to produce 300,000 tonnes annually.

– Food waste problem –

Jinshang’s business model is part of wider efforts in China to tackle the mountains of food waste generated by its population of 1.4 billion.

Around 350 million tonnes of farm produce — over a quarter of annual output — goes to waste in the country each year, discarded by restaurants, supermarkets or consumers, according to a 2021 Nature study.

In landfills, rotting food waste emits atmosphere-warming methane gas more quickly than most other materials, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency.

It’s a massive headache for Chinese cities and a major threat to global climate goals — one Beijing has vowed to tackle in a recent methane emissions plan that calls for the construction of innovative food waste processing projects across the country in the next few years.

In Shanghai, municipal waste treatment facilities have turned to the humble black soldier fly to turn tonnes of food waste each year into fertiliser and animal feed.

At the Laogang waste treatment plant, a cavernous sealed room houses 500 million maggots, which chomp their way through up to 2,500 tonnes of food waste each day, according to plant deputy director Wu Yuefeng.

The wriggling grubs excrete a fine, black, dirt-like substance that is repurposed as fertiliser, while the larvae themselves are killed and harvested at peak plumpness to be turned into livestock feed.

Back in Chengdu, the thought that his dinner will have a long, productive afterlife brings comfort to hotpot fan Dong.

“This utilisation and circulation of waste throughout the whole of society is more beneficial,” he told AFP.


The Rivers State Police Command has said 13 of its officers have been arrested for indecent dressing in different parts of Port Harcourt.

This is as the command assures that the killers of the former Divisional Police Officer of Ahoada East Local Government Area of the state, SP Bako Angbashin, would be apprehended and made to face the law.

The State Commissioner of Police, Olatunji Disu, disclosed this during a live programme organised by the Force Public Relations Department transmitted on a radio station in PortHarcourt on Saturday and monitored by our correspondent.

Disu said the policemen were arrested during a patrol by the command monitoring unit in various parts of Port Harcourt and were now in detention.

According to him, “During a routine patrol in different parts of the city, we arrested about 13 officers who were indecently dressed.

“This is part of an ongoing effort to stop indecent dressing by officers of the command.

“And the head of the divisions where these arrested officers are serving will be vicariously liable for the personnel’s conduct.”

He assured that the death of SP Angbashin would not be swept under the carpet.

Recall that SP Angbashin was captured and decapitated by a suspected Iceland cult gang led by one Gift Okpara, aka 2Baba in Odiemude community in Ahoada East LGA in September.

The state police boss said he is overwhelmed by the concern shown by members of the public about the murder of the DPO.

He disclosed that he was in talks with stakeholders in Ahoada and also getting advice from them in a bid to arrest the prime suspect, Gift Okpara.

On his objective for the command, CP Disu said his objective is to have police officers who are effective and friendly.

The CP added, “As police, we cannot succeed without cooperation and partnership from members of the public.

“I have started fostering a partnership between the police and members of the public.

“I had a meeting twice with the traffic section of the police to remind them that they must be civil in their dealings with members of the public.

“I want to work with members of the public so they can trust us and give us information.”


Jay Boogie has reacted after he was accused of lying to Nigerians about a non-existing medical condition to obtain funds. 

Recall that Jay Boogie accused a Nigerian doctor of performing a botched surgery on him in Lekki, Lagos State. 

Later, videos of him crying for help while revealing he has kidney issues emerged. He also said that he is “dying”.

In a post, a medical doctor gave an update, saying that Jay has not passed out urine in 24 hours. 

The medical doctor also said that Jay Boogie’s two kidneys have failed and he would be needing a kidney transplant.

However, after weeks of seeking funds from Nigerians, one of those who opened a GoFundMe account to source funds for Jay’s treatment came out to state that the donations will be returned because Jay is not being forthcoming with information about his diagnosis. She added that they have asked Jay to provide a hospital report but he has been acting shady. She then stated that the money donated will be returned to the public. 

Jay has now reacted. He said that he never told Nigerians that he needed a kidney transplant but he said he had other health issues and needed money for treatment. 

"I never said I needed kidney transplant" Jay Boogie says after he was accused of seeking donations from Nigerians with fake medical diagnosis

He wrote: “I never scammed Nigerians, I never lied, and I did not defraud anyone. I had sepsis and acute kidney injury, and I was on dialysis.” 

He added that he was discharged from the hospital on November 28 and he is now getting better. He said he also feels better and no longer needs dialysis.

Nigerian Catholic priest, Fr. Kelvin Ugwu, has shared his opinion of why the women most men end up marrying, look nothing close to the ones they once dated. 

“As funny as it may seem, one of the toughest decisions a man would make is choosing a wife. On the flip side, one of the easiest decisions is choosing a girlfriend,” he wrote in a Facebook post on Saturday.

“The way men think when asking a girl to be their girlfriend is not the way they think when asking a girl to be their wife. This is why the women most men end up marrying, may look nothing close to the women they once dated.”

The Federal Government has assured Nigerians that the N27.5 trillion 2024 budget presented by President Bola Tinubu to the National Assembly will mark the beginning of the transformation in the country after it is passed into law.

The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris,  made this known while speaking at the 2023 annual public lecture of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) in Kaduna State.

Idris explained that the proposed budget signifies a pivotal step towards the realisation of President Tinubu’s renewed hope agenda

“President Tinubu’s administration recognises the importance of economic stability. As the 2024 appropriation bill moves through the legislative process, we are very optimistic that its passage will mark the beginning of a transformative era, bringing tangible improvements to the lives of Nigerians,” Idris said.

“Just this week, he presented the 2024 Appropriation Bill of N27.5 trillion to the National Assembly, the first full-year Budget of his Administration. The budget as presented signifies a pivotal step towards the realisation of the Renewed Hope Agenda, by aligning fiscal strategies and priorities with broader national development objectives.

“In addition to its focus on development priorities, the budget demonstrates a commitment to fiscal responsibility.”

The minister stated that before the budget presentation, President Tinubu had assented to a Supplementary Budget, signed some landmark Bills and Executive Orders into law, and inaugurated special presidential initiatives on fiscal policy reform, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Food Security, MSME Support, and other critical areas of the economy.

“The goal has been to deliver relief to the Nigerian people, and lay the groundwork for true and lasting prosperity,” the minister said.


Nollywood actor and comedian, Michael Uba has informed reality star, Tolanibaj why all seven men she dated ended up dumping her.

Recall that Tolanibaj, in the recent episode of the Bahd And Boujee Podcast co-hosted by her and actress Moet Abebe, revealed how she has dated seven men and thought every one of them was her future husband but they always left her.

She further noted that all the good men are now taking since what is left in the dating pool are now remnants.

Reacting to this, Michael Uba advised the reality star to sit and ask herself questions if she thinks all seven men are the problem.

The cast of the popular comedy series, “Jenifa’s Diary” also cited Tolanibaj’s admission that her sole contribution to her relationship is her sweet p*ssy, and pointed out that this could also be the problem.

In his words: “You’ve been with 7 men and dey are all d problem? Sit and ask urself questions. Sometimes having bad experiences in relationships doesn’t necessarily mean u are a bad person, sometimes u have a poor choice in picking partners, sometimes u don’t know how to date, sometimes u just don’t know wat it takes to keep a relationship, and finally sometimes the only tin u bring to d table is ur *coughs*….if u know u know.”
