President Buhari has approved a comprehensive relief
package valued at over N400bn to put an end to the lingering
crisis of unpaid workers’ salaries in the country. Vanguard
gathered that a three-pronged relief package that will end the
workers plight include:
The sharing of about $2.1b (N413.7bn) in fresh allocation
between the states and the federal government. The money
is sourced from recent LNG proceeds to the federation
account, and its release okayed by the president;
A Central Bank-packaged special intervention fund that will
offer financing to the states, ranging from between N250bn
to N300bn. This would be a soft loan available to states to
access for the purposes of paying backlog of salaries;
And a debt relief program proposed by the Debt
Management Office, DMO, which will help states restructure
their commercial loans currently put at over N660bn, and
extend the life span of such loans while reducing their debt-
servicing expenditures.

Guiness names the World oldest woman

At 116 years old, Susannah Mushatt Jones of Brooklyn, New
York is now officially the world's oldest living person.
Born on July 6, 1899, Jones became the record holder on
June 17, 2015 at the age of 115 years and 346 days,
Guinness Book of World Records confirmed to ABC News
"While she lost her eyesight years ago and is hard of
hearing, Jones isn't bed-bound and only takes a few
medications a day," Guinness wrote in a press release. "Ms.
Jones, also known as "T," which is short for auntie, to her
100 nieces and nephews and "Susie" to friends, will also
become the oldest living female."
The centenarian revealed to Guinness that she attributes lots
of shut-eye to her long life on this earth.
Jones will celebrate her 116th birthday today with family and
again with a larger party among her housing community and
friends on July 7.
The oldest person ever to have lived was Jeanne Calment of
France, also a female, who lived to 122 years and 164 days.

Twin sisters Katie Bowden and Amy Meredith-Davies have done everything together their whole lives but never imagined that they would give birth same day, just hours before their 30th birthday

"We’ve done everything in our lives at similar times,” said Amy, a health, social care and wellbeing facilitator who lives in Neath. "Our family are used to it. We got married within a year of each other too. Katie got married in June 2012 and I was married in August 2013.I just can’t get over the fact that we fell pregnant at the same time."

The twins welcomed their children on June 10th. See more photos after the cut...
"It was bizarre because I was in labour and had a message from my mother saying Amy was being induced,” said Katie. “But still I thought that would be the next day. It was really funny because when my mum came to visit she would tell the midwife that she now had to leave to see my twin who was also having a baby. Everyone thought it was amazing.”
