* Minister Haruna

President Goodluck Jonathan has dissociated himself from Minister of Youth Development, Boni Haruna's claim that the presidency is ready to grant amnesty to the Islamist sect, Boko Haram.
The Minister had on Thursday stated that the President has granted amnesty to the sect members who are willing to embrace peace by dropping their arms and ammunitions.
“President Goodluck Jonathan has declared amnesty for members of the Boko Haram sect.
“Series of integration programmes have been lined up for the members of the sect who would surrender their arms and embrace peace.
“Let me use this opportunity on behalf of the Federal Government, to call on the members of the Boko Haram sect to embrace the government’s gesture and key to amnesty programme,” Mr Haruna said at a programme organised for the country’s youths.
But Jonathan, speaking through his spokesman, Dr. Reuben Abati, on Saturday, dismissed Haruna's claim.
Fielding questions from State House correspondents, Abati, insisted the President never used the word

Well that’s one way to enforce a stop sign.
A family in Indiana, USA, got a bit of a shock on Friday afternoon when the car they were travelling in collapsed into a sinkhole.
The vehicle had come to a halt at a junction in Evansville, Indiana, when a sinkhole suddenly opened up beneath them.
Thankfully the incident looks a lot worse that it actually was.
And despite the fact that it resembles a scene from a disaster movie, everyone managed to escape without injury.

VIDEO: Obasanjo Says Pres. Jonathan Lived In Denial, Acted Slowly To #BringBackOurGirls - PREMIUM TIMES/BloombergTV

       

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan lived in denial about the abducted Chibok schoolgirls for more than two weeks, withholding valuable decisions that would have led to the rescue of the girls, former President Olusegun Obasanjo has said.
The former president said this in an interview with Bloomberg TV Africa, aired on Saturday.
“The president did not believe that those girls were abducted for almost 18 days,” Mr. Obasanjo said in the interview. “If the president got the information within 12 hours of the act and he reacted immediately, I believe those girls would have been rescued within 24 hours, maximum 48 hours.”
Mr. Obasanjo said that rather than spring into action after receiving briefings about the abduction, “the president had doubts.”
He said the president’s initial action was to ask: “‘Is this true, or is it a ploy by people who don’t want me to be president again?’”
President Jonathan’s lethargic approach to the kidnapping was the “most unfortunate aspect of the whole

"One time Beyoncé jumped off of a ledge and came running over cause she thought me and Jay had issues. And I’m like, “What the f-ck? Did she really just jump and run up on me like that?.We was at the Cosmopolitan hotel. She jumped out and was like this, “What?! That Bonnie and Clyde forreal! You try this or what, boy?! I’m here!” She bugged out at me. I looked and Jay starts laughing. He’s like, “Yo, you know what it is.” I said, “Oh sh-t! What the f-ck y’all got going on, man? Bey jumped down off of that joint like, “What?! Wassup?!” Matter of fact, Floyd Mayweather was there. We were in the Cosmopolitan in Vegas and I was bringing him to say wassup to Jay because Jay don’t really like him."

GOOD NEWS: Sudanese Woman Sentence For Marrying A Christian Will Be Freed!

Adultery: Meriam has also been sentenced to 100 lashes because the court did not recognize her marriage to Christian Daniel Wani, a naturalized U.S. citizen, who lives in Manchester, New Hampshire

Sudanese authorities are to free a woman who was sentenced to death for having abandoned the Islamic faith, a foreign ministry official says.
Meriam Ibrahim, who gave birth to a daughter in custody, will be freed in a few days, the official told the BBC.

In an interview with The Times newspaper, British Prime Minister David Cameron described the ruling as “barbaric” and out of step with today’s world.
The UK Foreign Office this week said that it would push for Ms Ibrahim to be released on humanitarian grounds.

Helen
Like any lady of her age, Helen, 19, dreamt of a bright future. That dream brought her from her hometown in Benue State, to Bariga, Lagos State, where she stayed with her sister. But in her quest for a better life, her dream was shattered last January when she was gang-raped. The incident dramatically altered her life.

Helen, who is now living with the Human Immuno-deficiency Virus (HIV), is seeking justice against those who violated her. She tells her story to Senior TheNation Correspondent, EVELYN OSAGIE.
HELEN (surname withheld) will be 20 years on October 10. But she now bears a burden that is too heavy for her age. She was gang-raped in January this year and was diagnosed with HIV last month.  
After secondary school in 2008, Helen wanted to further her education, but being the fifth of 11 children comes with its own challenge. However, determined that she would return to school some day, she began working as a cleaner in a big firm at Lekki, Lagos,
from where she hoped to save for school. She had worked there for almost a year before the tragic episode that altered her life dramatically took place. It was with a deep emotion that she

'Fuji music is very dangerous' - Singer Etcetera writes...

 
Singer turned Punch Columnist Etcetera writes on why Fuji music is dangerous. Read below...
Fuji music and I got divorced at a street carnival on October 1st, 2010. I just couldn’t take it anymore and thought it best that we went our separate ways. I guess the feeling was mutual because that was the same day I recovered my sanity and my personal cool.
What would I become if I wasn’t aware of myself anymore? Unlike many adults, I have no stomach for music that makes me want to vandalize my home and for some crazy reasons; I have discovered that some fuji songs that are popular right now make you want to assess your mental state. The simple truth is one can’t remember any of such songs getting posted daily on blogs. I can only recognise a handful of artistes mentioned by some die-hard and unrepentant fanatics in my hood.
There was a period in time when it was actually important to know who was who, and who was better than

Churches Should Not Condone Abusive Men - Funmi Iyanda

 
Funmi Iyanda has expressed her opinion on men who beat their women, saying they should be excommunicated from churches. She also gave ladies few rules and made them understand they are the captain of their own ship.
“No family/church/institution should encourage a daughter to return to an abusive relationship/marriage. If you touch my child, l will kill you.
‘Girls, rule 1. There are no princes anywhere waiting to rescue you. You own and owe you; not him or anyone else. Leave at first slap.
“Churches, if not so concerned with the bottom line of patronage would excommunicate abusive men or women,’’ she said. Funmi got upset and made those statements when a Twitter user with the handle @Moe narrated how a man almost took the life of his wife who is nursing a baby and how her efforts to separate them was fruitless.

Following Boko Haram’s audacious attack on the convoy of Emirs who were on their way to attend the funeral of the Emir of Gombe, the Emir of Askira, HRH Mai Abdullahi Ibn Muhammadu has made his thoughts known to the public.

Akinyemi had sent a message to the Emir, who is also a member of the Confab expressing his heartfelt relief on behalf of the Conference.
“Your Royal Majesty, on behalf of the National Conference, please accept our heartfelt relief at the failure of the attack on your convoy. We thank Allah for your safety,” he said.

My husband begged me to allow him use my womb for money rituals – Wife tells court

court

A man in Oyo has urged a court to end his marriage of 11 years due to his wife’s troublesome nature.
Ademola Adelanwa told the customary court sitting in the Idi-Ose, Ibadan area that his wife, Opeyemi was always nagging.
The wife on the other hand said that she had suspected her husband of stealing her panties because he had once asked her to let him use her womb for money rituals.

Ademola told the court that his wife was in the habit of blackmailing and accusing him falsely before their family members, neighbours and church members.
He added that he had since stopped attending church programmes and packed out of the family house and now stays in a rented apartment.

“I was embarrassed when I learnt she had told people about it.
“ As God would have it, she later found her panties in the village,” he said.

Boko Haram under pressure as food supply runs out

BokoHaram-WIT-GUNS

According to reports, the increased presence of Boko Haram insurgents outside their Sambisa forest stronghold might be due to the need to stock up on food.
It is believed in some quarters that the need to feed the over 200 abducted girls and the insurgents themselves, has depleted the food reserves of the sect causing them to venture out on more raids.
The members of the sect are believed to have focused their raids on markets and villages in which food is carted off with the favourites being grain and bread.
Residents of the attacked villages have said that the constant stealing of foodstuffs was suspicious prompting the belief that the 200 extra mouths of the schoolgirls might be the reason.
Punch reports:
Residents of these communities told Saturday PUNCH that the rate at which the insurgents stole their foodstuffs was unprecedented, noting that the pressure to feed the abducted girls might have contributed to the desperation of the insurgents to steal and kill the villagers in the process.
One of the villagers, Bukar Umar, who resides in Kamuyya village in Borno State, told one of our correspondents that though it was normal for the insurgents to ask

I am from Idofian in Kwara State. My father is late but my mother lives in Ibadan. She has no idea I do this kind of job and she does not even know I am in police custody.I was living with a security guard in a house at Osborne in Ikoyi.

When he introduced me to armed robbery, I asked him if there would be no problem and he assured me that there would be none.

Update on Chibok girls: Presidency accepts Obasanjo’s mediation


Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday got the Presidency’s green light to proceed with peace talks with Boko Haram on the release of the abducted 223 girls.

But the go ahead is on the condition that there will be no swapping of the girls with detained terrorists.
Chief Obasanjo was scheduled to meet President Goodluck Jonathan last night either in Lagos or Accra.

Government, The Nation gathered, believes that swapping the girls for the terrorists will not only violate the spirit and letters of the Terrorism Prevention Act but  also hurt its allies – US, UK, France and others- which have joined in the search for the girls.

It was also gathered that the offer of amnesty to the insurgents by the President on Thursday has allayed the fears of Boko Haram.

A reliable source,familiar with the talks said: “The government does not see anything wrong in Obasanjo’s

Lagos 2015 Governorship: Who Is Afraid Of Ambode?

 
Since the open endorsement of Mr Akinwumi Ambode, the erstwhile Accountant General/Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Finance, Lagos State by none other than the much-respected Oba of Lagos, Oba Akiolu1 for the gubernatorial seat of Lagos state, the political landscape has never been the same again.
Oba Akiolu had used the auspicious occasion of the launch of Ambode’s biography, The Art of Selfless Service on May 15, 2014 at the jam-packed hall of the Civic Centre to drum home his support for the man of the moment. Ambode is widely acknowledged as an accomplished accountant, whose meritorious service to the state that spanned 27 years has become a source of pride to his friends and envy to his political foes.

The Oba of Lagos had hit the nail on the head. Said he, pointedly: 
“I will not lie to you. The elders of Lagos have met and they have said Ambode should be governor. You will still meet in your party and take a decision on who will be governor. But, in my capacity and in accordance with the wish of God and the elders around I will make my position clear on this matter. When you see someone that is dancing upstairs, you should know

"I was almost frustrated because my career had over the years failed to generate the desired response from music fans. I prayed to God first for inspiration and basically retraced my steps. It was then it occurred to me that my fans actually want something dynamic for a change. Consequently, because the music we are doing is Afro hip-hop and since Fela was the king of Afro hip hop, I decided to begin by paying homage to him.Things have definitely changed. Nowadays, I don’t charge less than N3m to perform at a concert. Sometimes the concerts are funded by multinational companies and we have to tour 20 states. Multiply N3m by 20 states

A hate preacher from London Mizanur Rahman caused public outrage as he praised Boko Haram in general and particularly the abduction of more than 200 Chibok school girls.  
In the released videos Rahman, who had been jailed for 3 years after calling for attacks similar to the New York bombing in Europe, commended Boko Haram, recently characterized by the USA as the deadliest terrorist group, and said it is "not necessarily a bad thing" if they kill non-Muslims.
The videos are currently probed by Scotland Yard specialists, The Herald reports.
The leader of Quilliam counter-extremist think tank Haras Rafiq called the videos dangerous saying:
"The comments he’s made about Boko Haram are particularly dangerous, appalling and disgusting. He’s teaching how to hate and anger non-Muslims. That is a real threat to society and needs to be countered."
See the phrase from the video transcript:
"They [Boko Haram] didn’t do to these girls what the Nigerian government had been doing to the

RELATIONSHIP: 10 undeniable signs she’s trying to flirt with you

black-woman-happy

I’m going to lay something out right off the bat here: There is no definitive answer to the “Is she flirting with me?” question.

Women are individuals who each have their very own unique way of attracting you, loving you and driving you totally insane. That’s just what we do, man. However, when it comes to flirting, there are a few signs that you should be sure not to brush off as just a casual pleasantness. Women are individuals, but we are also as obvious as men are oblivious, so let me help you get laid

She’s Chatting Up Your Friend But Keeps Her Eyes On You
I’m about to introduce you to a really ridiculous thing called the “Cheeseburger Principle.” Think about when you’re hanging out with your friend and you see your friend eating a cheeseburger. Even if you’re trying really hard not to eat meat or something, just watching him eat that burger makes you want it even more. Right? OK, so some terrible advice columnist took this so-called “principle” and applied it to flirting.
Is it true? Yes. It’s true. Sometimes a woman will flirt with your friend just to try to entice you, but she’ll make sure it’s always within your vision and will direct most of the energy toward you. I’m not a fan of this. I think it’s backward, game-playing nonsense, but some people do play this card.

Don’t laugh: What would you do if your child (re)designs your visa this way? (SEE PHOTO)

Destroyed passport

Getting a visa to visit a foreign country is a tasking process so obviously those visas are well protected when eventually gotten.
Unfortunately for the owner of this passport and visa however, children don’t really have a clue about how much goes into the process hence the painting of the visa in the picture.
What would you do if you were outside the country and your child designed your visa in this way?
