Former President of the United States, Donald Trump has launched his campaign to win the Republican presidential nomination in 2024, promising to make America “great and glorious again”.
Fidel Info reports that Mr Trump became the first candidate in the race nearly two full years before Election Day.
He declared despite candidates he backed having performed poorly in the midterm elections last week.
His motivation was partly to discourage other potential Republican presidential candidates, including his chief rival Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, from running.
Announcing his candidacy in the ballroom at his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida, Mr Trump, 76 said: “America’s comeback starts right now. In order to make America great and glorious again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States.”
“This will not be my campaign, this will be our campaign all together. We will again put America first. Are you getting ready? I am too.”
He added: “Our campaign is based on freedom, values, individual responsibility and just plain common sense.”
Mr Trump said his campaign was going to be “about issues” and would “unify people”.
He accused Joe Biden of “leading us to the brink of nuclear war” and added: “Ukraine would never have happened if I was your President.”
Al-Nassr superstar hit with lawsuit for promotion of crypto exchange Binance
Portugal and Al-Nassr superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has been sued for promoting the controversial cryptocurrency exchange Binance.
The 38-year-old Portuguese star has been hit with a proposed class-action lawsuit from plaintiffs Michael Sizemore, Mikey Vongdara, and Gordon Lewis, all of whom claim they suffered severe losses from his promotion of crypto exchange Binance – as reported by Coin Telegraph.
Back in 2022, Binance announced a multi-year deal with Ronaldo, in a bid to promote a series of his own non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Within the complaint, it has been claimed that users who signed up through Ronaldo’s promotion of the platform were more likely to use Binance for other reasons, such as investing in alleged “unregistered securities”.
A filing to a United States district court in Florida on November 27 regarding Ronaldo’s involvement with Binance claimed: “Ronaldo’s promotions solicited or assisted Binance in soliciting investments in unregistered securities by encouraging his millions of followers, fans, and supporters to invest with the Binance platform.”
The suit also alleges Ronaldo was previously aware or should have known “about Binance selling unregistered crypto securities” because of his “investment experience and vast resources to obtain outside advisers”.
Ronaldo will have to turn his focus away from the ongoing issues regarding Binance currently, as he prepares to face Al-Hilal, who recently lost Brazilian star Neymar to a season ending injury, on Friday evening.
Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr team currently sit in second place in the Saudi Pro League behind their upcoming opponents, as they look to close the current four point gap with a win in the coming days
Adeleke Embarks On Working Vacation To Europe, Moves To Woo Foreign Investors
Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State has embarked on a short working vacation to Europe and Asia to finalise partnership deals with investors and development partners.
The Governor, who has not gone on a break since assuming office a year ago, is billed to conclude partnership deals in several sectors with investors who had earlier visited the state.
Speaking before departure, the Governor said Osun people have the right to know about the movement of their Governor, hence his public disclosure of his short vacation abroad.
“This is a democracy. My masters are Osun people who elected me into office and to whom I am surely accountable. My trip is however a working one as I will be meeting foreign partners who are eager to join several sectors of our state economy.
The last one year has been rewarding as we have stabilised the state from inherited rot. We are reconstructing and simultaneously delivering good governance. That is why our 2024 budget is tagged budget of reconstruction and recovery.
In one year, we place Osun state on a path of sustainable development, upgrading critical sectors like education, health, culture and entertainment, water, sports, digital economy, workers’ welfare, infrastructures, and agriculture. We cap it with a multi-billion naira infrastructure plan now under implementation.
I thank the Osun people for their continuous support and prayers. At home and abroad, I am committed to delivering on our five-point agenda for a better life for our people, the Governor was quoted as saying
Nigerian student faces deportation from Scotland after threats to university
A Nigerian Masters student at the Dundee University in Scotland, Somtochukwu Okwuoha faces jail and deportation after a jury found him guilty of making terrorist threats against the school.
According to the BBC, Okwuoha claimed he had enlisted Isis to help bomb the university and told staff he planned to target the city in a chemical attack.
The international energy studies student was found guilty of seven charges and was remanded in custody.
The 26-year-old will be sentenced next month.
Sheriff William Wood will also consider the Crown’s motion for an order to deport Okwuoha to Nigeria.
A trial heard that Okwuoha told university staff he planned to carry out mass murder on the Dundee University campus.
Witnesses described how Okwuoha claimed he had a military background and was capable of making bombs and unleashing a deadly virus on the city.
Keith Mackle, 58, now retired director of student services, told Perth Sheriff Court he became aware of “serious concerns” in the autumn of 2021.
He said staff members received emails making terrorist threats.
One said: “Expect a massive bomb explosion at the University of Dundee. I have contacted Isis terrorists to plant bombs on campus.
“I can assure you staff and students will die in great numbers. 9/11 will be a joke compared to what will happen.
“Blood will spill and flesh will be scattered.”
Accommodation officer Shane Taylor told the court Okwuoha accused him of being racist and said he planned to wipe out Scottish people as revenge.
Okwuoha, a prisoner at Perth, was found guilty of threatening to murder staff at the university and commit terrorist crime between December 2021 and June 2022.
He was found guilty of threatening to commit mass murder, using biological weapons, revealing staff details to international authorities, and claiming to have planted bombs.
He was also found guilty of threatening to behead police officers and detonate bombs he had planted at Dundee University
