Bovi's challenge to GEJ & Buhari over 2015 election

 
@officialbovi: "That no one shall die. In 2011, at the announcement of the results, riots broke out in d north because buhari lost. So many innocent souls perished. Amongst them were innocent youth corp members of southern extraction who had no say in the matter. If indeed our presidential candidates love Nigeria, they should come out together in a joint press conference, in arms, and jointly urge every Nigerian, every supporter to shun violence in next years elections. If it's too hard to do, then we are far from a democratic and united nation"

Why We Stopped Buying Nigeria’s Oil, By White House

 
OFFICIALS of the United States government have for the first time in months presented an explanation on the sudden termination of oil imports from Nigeria since July, an action which spurred concerns whether there were any possible political connotation especially because of the current strain in Nigeria-US diplomatic relations.

Answering a question on the issue from The Guardian, during the week, White House Director of the US National Economic Council, Mr. Jeff Zients, said the cessation of oil imports from Nigeria had to do with the significant rise in US oil production.

Zients, US Labor Secretary, Thomas Perez, and White House Policy Council Director, Cecelia Munoz, were addressing a few US journalists on Thursday afternoon on the state of the American economy when The Guardian raised the question wondering why the US brought oil imports from Nigeria to a complete

Patience Jonathan replies Gen. Buhari on scrapping the office of the First Lady

 
General Buhari stated yesterday in an interview with Weekly Trust that if elected as president in next year’s presidential election, he would abolish the office of the First Lady. The office, though not constitutionally recognized, has been maintained by past and present administrations and is even seen as being key in policy decisions. He said that ministries, which are constitutional, should be allowed to play their roles instead.
"There is the Ministry of Women Affairs, and so on. I was raised by my mother, as I lost my father when I was under 6 yars, so I know what a woman can do if given the chance”.
In a subtle way of replying Buhari's comments, First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan, emphasized the importance of the office of the First Lady in the Nigerian politics, saying that the office has been an avenue for mobilizing women for mass participation in politics. 
She said this in Abia state during a reception organized for her by the Ohuhu community, her maternal home

PHOTOS: Mum Of Five Who Suffers Rare Disorder Has Broken Almost Every Bone In Her Body

 
This is the stunning mom of five who has dislocated or broken every bone in her body and even yawning isn't safe for her.

Jojo Meadows, 38, suffers from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), a rare condition that causes her bones to dislocate up to a whopping 10 times a day. Simple tasks such as driving, opening doors, and even yawning are enough to force Jojo's bones to pop out of their sockets.
It’s so bad that some of the bones in her body pop out at every slightest task, without Jojo even knowing. At least she visits the hospital 100 times in a year.
Jojo says the genetic condition, which she first became aware of when she was 12, means the collagen in her body is too weak to hold her limbs in place now that she is 38.

Is Wizkid on ice again? - Etcetera writes...


People won't let Wizkid hear word with this his 'In My Bed' song...lol. Singer turned writer Etcetera also thrashes it. Read below...

Six weeks ago, I was in Benin City to support a friend who was getting married that weekend. We drove down to Ugbowo campus of UNIBEN, laughing along the way at bini guys and the way they pronounce certain words. We got stuck in an unusual traffic jam and my friend who was driving, took the opportunity to reply his pings, pausing only to turn up the radio when Wizkid’s “In My Bed” came on. A few seconds later, he increased the volume even more. I accepted that since I was in his car, I had to endure his choice of songs. So I listened, trying to figure out why he was interested in that particular song. 

It saddens me that I don't get shows in Nigeria - Seun Kuti

 
Seun Kuti has once again made it clear  that he doesn't  believe in marriage. He also says he is saddened by the fact that,while he does on successful tours in Europe,  he hardly gets shows in Nigeria .He told Punch:
I don’t know. I come back here to rest because I don’t get jobs here. I don’t understand it as well. At times, I am saddened by it because it is just a shame. It is not even about me but the band which has the pedigree of being a big band. But just for political reasons, we are being excluded. I believe afro beat should be in high demand in Nigeria, Fela did a lot for Nigerians. I watch the shows here and it is not as if they are better than what I do.
Don’t you think you are not invited to perform here in Nigeria because your songs are so controversial?
In America, political artistes hardly get shows. The entertainment industry is highly corporate these days. Artistes are no longer artistes, they are businessmen. You hear them calling

Policeman battered by Naval officer goes blind (PHOTO)

 
The police officer who complained of losing his sight after being attacked by a naval officer has gone blind. As­sistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) was attacked on the eye by the naval rating, identified as Warrant Officer Unaji Ene­jor on February 22 in the Kirikiri area of Lagos State.

The 50-year-old victim had suffered glaucoma on his left eye before the incident, and a punch from his attacker on his right eye dealt a big blow to his overall sight.

All efforts made by Mbilla to regain his failing sight proved abortive. He told Saturday Sun that he had visited many hospitals in Lagos in a quest for a cure for his battered eye.

Presently, the policeman, who was previously doing virtually everything on his own, including driving his car, has now turned vegetable, relying on his two wives for help. In her narration, the second wife told the Sun:
“My husband and I were in my shop, when we suddenly heard a loud noise like a crash just

North Korea called President Barack Obama "a monkey" and blamed the U.S. on Saturday for shutting down its Internet amid the hacking row over the comedy "The Interview."
