Don't Use My Name To Divide Nigeria – Patience Jonathan Warns Media

Don't Use My Name To Divide Nigeria – Patience Jonathan Warns Media

Patience Jonathan has reacted to what she called as campaign of calumny against her. Her position is contained in a statement issued by her spokesperson, Ayo Adesugba, on Friday.

Earlier on Thursday, December 19, This Day newspaper published on its frontpage a report titled "First Lady Threatens PDP Governors Over Tukur."
Commenting the said report, Adesugba stated it made reference to an unnamed source which alleged that the First Lady met with some Governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and pressed them to support Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, the PDP National Chairman, to keep his position.
Patience Jonathan's spokesperson called media professionals to be more mature in reporting and adhere to the basic ethics of journalism by being fair, factual and balanced.
"The article made reference to a vague source with no name. No reporter approached the First

Obasanjo's First Wife Wrote A Book About Him: Here's what she wrote and you'll be Surprised.....

 
 Oluremi Obasanjo

The first wife of the former Nigerian president Olusegun Obasanjo has broken it in spectacular style with a tell-all autobiography, Bitter-Sweet: My Life with Obasanjo. The author paints a portrait of her husband as a vindictive "master of decoy", a "violent and unrepentant wife-basher", and a man whose "womanising knows no bounds". It couldn't come at a worse time for the 72-year-old Mr Obasanjo who has been busily building a new profile for himself as a pan-African statesman second only to Kofi Annan.

What ensues is an almost slapstick riot of affairs and breathless high politics punctuated with domestic violence and desperation. And it's one in which Mama Iyabo is happy to name names. In the early 1970s her particular nemesis was an older married woman called Mowo Sofowora. One evening, she recalls: "I was eavesdropping on the phone downstairs while Obasanjo was in the bedroom. They had spoken for about 30 minutes when she then said she was having a headache. I had heard enough, so I butted in: 'It's that

BIG BLOW: South Africa’s biggest trade union withdraws support for ANC ahead of General Election

 

South Africa’s biggest trade union has announced that it is withdrawing its support for the ANC ahead of next year’s election – a big blow to the governing party.
The 330,000-member National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) said it would not endorse any party.
Trade unions and the Communist Party have been in a tri-partite alliance with the ANC since 1994.
But poor South Africans have become increasingly critical of the ANC.
They accuse it of corruption and not doing enough to tackle poverty.
Last week, President Jacob Zuma was publicly booed by the memorial service for Nelson Mandela.
The BBC’s Milton Nkosi in Johannesburg says this should be a wake-up call for the ANC not to take its anti-apartheid support base for granted. “It is clear that the working class cannot any longer see the ANC or the SACP as its class allies in any

Ballerina Mary Helen Bowers is about to give birth to her first child, and has been dancing through pregnancy with unbelievable agility and breathtaking grace.
Bowers, the woman behind the Ballet Beautiful fitness company and the trainer who helps get Victoria's Secret models into runway form, has been documenting the stages of her pregnancy in a series of stunning photographs. She has been sharing these steps of her journey to motherhood on her Instagram account.
"I've found the entire process of being pregnant to be such a miraculous, beautiful time," she told The Huffington Post in an email Friday. "As a first-time mom I am so excited! My instinct has been not only to capture this special time, but [also] to share it with others, too. Pregnancy is magical, I've never felt more

The season of Satanic Letters - By Dele Momodu

But despite all these qualifications, Obasanjo could not lead Nigeria out of the doldrums. His tragic flaw was his decision to play God by not allowing Nigerians to choose their leaders without undue interference.  He did this successfully but unceremoniously and ignominiously on two occasions

Fellow Nigerians, I hope we have all realised that pestilence has entered our land. What is going on at the moment is akin to what happened towards the end of 1988 when Salman Rushdie wrote his controversial novel, The Satanic Verses. By early 1989, the raging inferno had engulfed everywhere and everyone was searching for any available copy. I remember then as a Staff Writer at the Weekend Concord, how we combed everywhere looking for this book that had caused so much anger and anguish in the Islamic world such that a fatwa had to be pronounced on the author. When our Editor, Mike Awoyinfa eventually got hold of a copy, some of us had to photocopy the entire book as it became pertinent to own and read a work everyone was talking about. It brought home the reality that nothing sells like controversy.
When President Olusegun Obasanjo wrote his now controversial letter to President Goodluck Jonathan, I

Nigerian Medical Association continues nationwide strike

NMA

The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), has resolved to continue with its ongoing nationwide strike action, until more concrete efforts are made by the Federal Government to meet the association’s minimum demands.
This was disclosed in a communique made available to newsmen in Abuja on Friday, signed by the NMA president, Osahon Enabulele.
The communique was issued after a National Executive Council (NEC) emergency meeting, which took place on Thursday, December 19.
According to reports:

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the association’s members embarked on a five-day warning strike in public health institutions on Wednesday, Dec. 18.
The association had listed the issues of the strike as bordering on some health sector challenges, workplace conditions and the conditions of service of doctors.

Man gets the world’s first artificial heart in ground-breaking operation (PHOTO)


An artificial heart has been transplanted into a patient for the first time in medical history, it was announced today.
French medics said that a male patient was awake and responding well following Wednesday’s ground-breaking operation at the Georges Pompidou Hospital in Paris. Marcello Conviti, head of the Carmat biomedical firm, said: ‘We are delighted with this first implant, although it is premature to draw conclusions given that a single implant has been performed and that we are in the early postoperative phase.’
Mr Conviti said the artificial heart, which is three times the weight of a real one, would beat for at least five years. Heart-assistance devices have frequently been used for patients waiting for transplants, but the new bioprosthetic device will replace the real heart
It will help thousands of people who are die each year while waiting for a donor, including many in Britain.

APC to PDP: Everything Built On Fraud, Corruption And Evil Will Collapse

 

All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has described the massive defection of prominent members of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC as the hurricane that will eventually dismantle the political culture of graft, corruption and impunity in governance in Nigeria.
Reacting to the defection of 37 PDP members of the House of Representatives to the APC, the party said, "This is a unique situation which will resonate throughout the country and cripple the forces of retrogression that have been at the core of the country’s descent into a banana republic.”
A statement signed by Osun APC’s director of publicity, research and strategy, Barr. Kunle Oyatomi said, “It will be a costly error for anybody to reduce this event to a sheer struggle for political power.”
According to the APC, “A force perhaps, beyond our comprehension, has struck at the monstrous head of evil in Nigeria right there in Abuja, which will cause the PDP house built on sand to collapse with a

It’s Time To Turn Up The Heat – Says Obasanjo

 
After firing several shots in his much-publicised letter to President Goodluck Jonathan, it appears that Nigeria's former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, is not yet done. In his latest comments on the polity and the 2015 presidential race posted on his Facebook page, Obasanjo expressed fear over the possibility of the crisis-ridden Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to make any meaningful impact in 2015.

Indicating that he has totally lost fate in the PDP as is being run today in Abuja, Obasanjo declares: “It is now time to turn up the heat. May the best party win.”

The PDP had been thrown into confusion, which had polarised the party at national and state levels, leading to their governors and lawmakers defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In order to rescue the party from its leadership and the presidency, Obasanjo had written an 18-page letter

IK Ogbonna: I Wish I Could Marry All The Girls In The World

Photo - IK Ogbonna: I Wish I Could Marry All The Girls In The World

Nollywood actor/model IK Ogbonna has paid a big price for being such a handsome guy. Recently there was an allegation that his recent trip to the US was to satisfy the sexual urge of his female customers as a gigolo and homosexual.
Seven years ago, he was a nobody, he moved to Lagos alone and had a very rough time. Sometimes he slept on the street, for like three years or so, he slept in cars and today, he is hot and famous.
IK Ogbonna's fashion weakness is the fact that he could be regarded as metrosexual in looks especially because he is not confident in wearing clothes that’s not fitted. He feels lost in clothes that are not cut to fit his body.
Apart from that he doesn’t think he has any weakness. He revealed that he has a crush on Genevieve Nnaji, whenever she’s around he loses his guards…

19 pregnant girls freed in yet another baby factory bust

(Photo: Sun News)

The police discovered a house in Umuahia, Abia state that housed a total of 19 pregnant women.
Their discovery revealed a baby factory with the women planning to sell their newborns.
Geoffrey Ogbonna, a police spokesman, said that the prime suspect who’ location is currently unknown is the owner of the property and suspected to be in the child trafficking ring.
PMNews reports:
Police “rescued 19 expectant mothers in different stages of pregnancy”, he said.
Southeast Nigeria is grappling with a human trafficking epidemic, with a series of black market maternity homes discovered in the last year.
In most cases, young women have run to such homes to avoid the stigma attached to pregnancies conceived outside of marriage.
They take a portion of the money earned from selling the baby.
There have also been reports of young women kidnapped and forcibly impregnated by

Opinion: On the battle for supremacy between Nigeria and South Africa

goodluck-jonathan-jacob-zuma-rivalry-300x225 

With such foreign policy stance, a viable economic base, an adept purposeful political leadership and viable governance structure, Nigeria would indeed be able to assert her indelible footprints once more across Africa, effectively making her the undeniable giant of Africa.

On the global arena, there has been an unceasing battle for supremacy between two super power – the US and China – both states trying to strengthen their influences not only in economics but also in the field of politics. This supremacy battle is also playing out in the African continent, between the first and second largest economies – South Africa and Nigeria respectively – are in a budding struggle for supremacy. The most populous country in Africa and indeed the black race and the fourth most populous within the continent, are undeniable hegemonic powers in their respective sub-regions and both account for half of sub-Saharan Africa’s economic might.
The relationship between both countries can be examined in four parts: firstly, during the ‘independence boom’ sweeping through Africa in the 1960s to the latter stages of the infamous apartheid epoch in 1993. This period saw Nigeria playing a prominent role in bringing to an end apartheid rule not only in South Africa,

The Princess Diaries: How Stella Oduah got away with everything

Stella-Oduah1

The crowd in the terminal is as thick as toothbrush bristles, total strangers packed so tightly that they are literally breathing down each other’s necks.
The angst is audible, the edge in the voices of the listless crowd approaches the distinctive din of an angry mob. You try to lift the mood in your little square foot of space on the queue by chatting with the traveller behind you, but because you have to crane your neck and raise your voice to be heard, you conclude the effort is not worth the reward.
Then, as abruptly as it often does in Lagos, it starts to pour, sending a surge of travellers and touts into the hall to further cramp the conditions. The roar of the rain and the jostling of the soaking new entrants tips the anger and it becomes a proper shouting match.
And then it hit you.
At first you think it is an inadvertent spray from someone who had come in from the rain and you look around to find who and to ask them, as politely as you can manage to “Puleeeease watch it”. But it does not stop; instead it grows into a steady dribble that starts to soak your hair and spatter on the flight ticket held in

TOP SECRET: See The Number One Thing Every Woman Wants In Bed

3540533-beautiful-young-caucasian-couple-in-a-bed-on-isolated-background

And that is Emotional Intimacy.
During a survey of over 1,000 women, each woman was asked about their best s*x. 96 percent of the women revealed that the best s*x they have ever had was with someone with whom they are emotionally connected.
Other reasons women (and even sometimes men) gave for enjoying s*x include “being with someone I love,” followed by “feeling good about my s*xual abilities” and “when my partner compliments me.”
So what are the top three things women crave? The survey reveals that the top three requirements for great s*x are physical attraction, emotional intimacy and feeling secure and loved.
This also laid credence to the survey conducted by Durex which revealed that 87 percent of women said the

I was forced to pay a godfather N10m monthly as Anambra governor – Mbadinuju

Chinwoke Mbadinuju

In this interview with JOHN ALECHENU, a former governor of Anambra State, Chinwoke Mbadinuju, speaks about the controversies which dodged his administration, godfathers and the inability of the Peoples Democratic Party to form government in the state since he left office.

It was speculated that you were going to be among the governorship aspirants in the last election in Anambra; what happened?
 The main reason why I didn’t pick any form and why I didn’t go into the contest is because already, most of the PDP members in Anambra were my boys, I brought them up. Some of them were my Special Advisers. Others were Special Assistants and Secretary to the State Government or one thing or the other. If I had gone into the contest with such people, the so-called godfathers will back them to try to disgrace me and win the election at all costs. Then,  you would see money bags throwing their weight and money around and I might find myself alone. If I lost, it won’t augur well for me and my supporters. I consulted with my people although I had made up my mind under the circumstances at that time. It was a personal decision; nobody forced me to or not to. After four years in Awka and all the things that followed, I felt I did enough in four

We are scared for life – Children raped by own fathers (Part 1)


It is no ordinary crime. Incest, a distant word to many, claims its victims body and soul  and shatters every sense of normalcy a child who grows up to experience such act is supposed to have. Such is the life of Bola and Tolu, who endured a sexual abuse by their father for two years. But for Susan, who had two children for her father, it is a different kettle of fish as a result of the identity problem her children will have to contend with. KUNLE FALAYI reports:

Sexual abuse is one of the greatest crimes that could be committed against a child. The United Nations Convention on Rights of Child and Nigeria’s Child Rights Act give prominence to the protection of a child in the society as a result of this and specifically make case for the importance of the “primary care giver” which is the child’s immediate family.
 But for many children, they are captives in their own family as they are constantly sexually assaulted by their own fathers. For such children, the scar the act leaves in their lives will not likely be erased anytime soon.

JUSTICE: Priest Raping Young Girls Jailed 50 Years After Abuse

Priest Raping Young Girls Jailed 50 Years After Abuse

Father Finian Egan had escaped punishment for sexually abusing young girls for more than 50 years.
50 years after he started abusing girls, Father Finian Egan has been jailed for at least four years
But now the frail and elderly Catholic priest has been jailed for at least four years for abusing three young NSW girls over the course of three decades.
Egan's victims, whose lives were irrevocably damaged by the abuse inflicted on them, stood in the District Court in Sydney on Friday and watched as he was falteringly led away to spend his first night in jail.
He will be 83 years of age by the time he is eligible for release. Egan enjoyed a position of power and privilege as a Catholic priest at a time when, among religious communities, priests were considered among the elite of society.
He abused that position of power again and again, preying on vulnerable young girls whose "powerlessness and helplessness" was exacerbated by their vulnerability, Judge Robyn Tupman said as she sentenced Egan

TB Joshua's Prophecy Now Being Fulfilled in South Sudan?

 
Sometime in late October or early November, Nigerian prophet TB Joshua prophesied that an East Africa president would be abducted by terrorists. Were it any other prophet, that would probably have gone unreported, but TB Joshua was right on the death of Malawi President Bingu wa Mutharika.

This prophecy was distorted by the internets, prompting his ministry to release the statement below...
“This is an official message from Prophet T.B. Joshua and The SCOAN. There are distorted rumors spreading on the internet concerning T.B. Joshua’s prophecy this past Sunday. Rumors are saying that the man of God said that an East African country will soon be kidnapped by terrorists and that a night club would be blown up. Do not listen to the father of lies.

“These are not the words used by the prophet. Prophet T.B. Joshua specifically asked journalists not to

Patience Jonathan Meets Anti-Amaechi Lawmakers In Rivers State
