AFCON 2015: Nigeria's Super Eagles Back In Contention After Beating Congo 2 - 0 At Home

Reigning African champions, Super Eagles of Nigeria, have revived their hopes of qualifying for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations with a 2-0 win over the Red Devils of Congo in Point Noire, Congo.
The two goals were scored by  Villareal striker, Ikechukwu Uche and China-based Aaron Samuel. The decisive victory was sufficient for the Super Eagles to avenge a 3-2 defeat  they suffered at the hands of the Congolese national team in Calabar back in September 2014.
The Congolese team looked fit and ready to crush the Eagles during the  first half, but they crumbled in the second with Nigeria playing more aggressively to take over the game.
 The Nigerian side was awarded a penalty from Emmanuel Emenike’s surging run (fouled by the goalkeeper) and Samuel's sweet curling goal for Nigeria’s was the second of the game
Before the match, Congo were second in the Group A standings on seven points from four matches, three points ahead of third-placed Nigeria (only the top two teams guaranteed automatic passage to the

The court, presided over by Justice Binta Nyako, also restrained the Federal Government and NAFDAC from further interfering with the use of the vaccines.
Abalaka, an Abuja based medical practitioner, had challenged NAFDAC for banning him from using the vaccines he discovered in 1999 for the treatment and prevention of HIV.
Joined in the suit were the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Attorney General of the Federation.
Testifying before the court, Abalaka, who also called three witnesses, said he discovered a recipe to turn the virus in the infected blood of HIV infected person into both preventive and curative vaccines.

SEE Cannibal Trio Who Kill People Just To Reduce World's Population (PHOTOS)

                              Jorge Silveira (l) and his wife Isabel Pires pictured after their arrest
Jorge Beltrao Negromonte, his wife Isabel Cristina Pires, and his mistress Bruna Cristina da Silva claimed to be part of a sect that wanted to reduce the world's population and so have resulted into killing humans.
They lured a teenage mum to their home after promising her a job, slit her throat, and then fed bits of her flesh to her one-year-old child, whom they later started training to be a cannibal before they were arrested four years after.

Jorge Beltrao Negromonte, 52, his wife Isabel Cristina Pires, 53, and his mistress Bruna Cristina da Silva, 28, were also accused of killing and eating at least two women, as well as stuffing their victims’ flesh into pies they sold to schools and hospitals.
The trio have now been found guilty by a court in Olinda, north east Brazil. Negromonte was sentenced to

Al-Mustapha Replies Obasanjo: 'I Do Not Head Any Killer Squad For Jonathan Against 2015'

Hamza Al-Mustapha who was not too long ago released from prison has replied former head of state, president Olusegun Obasanjo that he knows nothing about a killer squad neither does he head anyone for the present head of state. In an interview with Premium Times Al-Mustapha described the accusation has rather unfortunate and also explains why he wants Mohammed Abacha to be the next Kano State Governor.
PT: How would you respond to the allegation by former President Obasanjo that you are heading a killer squad for President Jonathan?
Al-Mustapha: I have replied him that it is most unfortunate. That is what I said. And for him to have come up with that I’m sure he has no fact, he has no figures, and he has nothing to say other than what he has done. If he’s angry that God has granted us freedom, that’s another thing entirely. But to give such an allegation, weighty as it is in the eyes of the law, certainly that is a fundamental issue that cannot be brushed aside. I

Suicide Bomber: How Teacher Saved Another School Assembly Disaster in Niger State

Culled from Vanguard:
It was never imagined that two schools could be targeted by bombers within two days in Niger State, but it happened.
The first was a tertiary institution – Federal College of Education, Kontagora – while the other was Maryam Babangida Science College named after a former first lady, Maryam Babangida, by the government of Dr. Mua’zu Babangida Aliyu. Two bombers were involved. That of the Federal College of Education, Kontagora was perpetrated by a female and the mission was accomplished but with low casualty while that of Minna by a male was aborted.

Maryam Babangida Science College is a female  college planned to be a model school.
On the fateful Thursday, the students were at the assembly ground not knowing that there was a sinister move meters away by a bomber. At about 7.30 a.m., a female teacher hurrying to school suspected strange movements in the bush. She also perceived the odour of Indian hemp which sent a signal to her that

S&P Downgrades Ghana Cedi To "Junk" Status

Standard and Poor’s (S&P), today announced that it has downgraded Ghana’s long term currency credit rating from ‘B’ to B-, a move that has moved the Ghanaian cedi dangerously within ‘junk’ status.
S&P’s, which is one of the largest credit agencies in the world, made the assessment arguing that despite successful billion dollar loans issued to Ghana by international creditors, the Ghanaian economy was in a precarious situation considering staggering current account deficits.
Ghana’s economy has experienced a significant slow down, a situation it has attributed to volatile market prices for key commodities like cocoa and gold.

The country is currently in talks with the IMF to secure an emergency loan which Ghana hopes will help bolster the Ghanaian cedi long enough till Ghana ramps up oil production next year.

Trouble started barely a year into their marriage, when he discovered that he was about to lose his wife, Barakat to his best friend, Tunji Bello with whom she had been entan­gled in a secret romance.

2015 Presidency: Tinubu finally dumps Buhari for Tambuwal?

According to a report by Vanguard, APC national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and his supporters are in the process of dumping General Muhammadu Buhari for Speaker Aminu Tambuwal. But how true?

Team Tinubu was said to have been compelled by some former leaders and Northern Islamic leaders to drop its support for the 2015 presidential aspiration of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.

Reflective of the pressure which also came from some close associates of Asiwaju Tinubu, the political group has switched support towards the presidential aspiration of Speaker Aminu Tambuwal who with his entry this week, immediately turned into a major contender for the ticket.

Tambuwal has Buhari and Atiku Abubakar as the main challengers for the party’s presidential ticket.

Several other factors were taken into consideration by the Tinubu camp in switching support...
Close associates of the political leader disclosed to Vanguard that among the other factors was the alleged overbearing influence of some close associates of Gen. Buhari, who they claimed were likely to fence out

'Marrying My Ex-Wife’s Niece Is No Big Deal' - K1

Alhaji Ayinde Wasiu Marshal, K1 has said he won’t be the first person to marry his ex-wife’s niece and people talking about it should let them be. While speaking in a fresh interview K1 hinted that it is true he married his ex-wife's niece and what's the big deal about that.
Doesn’t it bother you when people talk and reel out such scandals about you marrying your ex-wife’s relative?
It doesn’t make any meaning to me. Do you read the Bible very well? The Bible contains a lot of things even for generations yet to come to learn something from. The Bible is a book of life. Talking about my personal life doesn’t make any meaning. If you start tracing the lineage of some people, you would even find out that some men may have married their sisters and nothing happened. It is not a big deal. If they didn’t kill them then, why would somebody talk about my marrying my ex-wife’s niece and such jargons? It doesn’t make

But buried deeply in the girl’s heart was a painful secret she had never told a soul. With threats, pleading and persuasion, Gloria’s brother, Obi, tried to get the truth about who was responsible out of Gloria, but the little girl was too afraid to tell the truth.

Timid and innocent, she looked at the floor as she spoke softly, delving into the account of a sexual abuse she had gone through in the last five years.

2015: House of Reps members Buy Presidential Form for Tambuwal

The quest for top political offices in the APC ahead of 2015 has taken a different dimension. Speaker Aminu Tambuwal’s presidential aspiration has taken a new turn as 20 members of the House of Reps put money together to collect the presidential nomination and expression of interest form on his behalf.

APC’s national organising secretary, Senator Osita Izunazo, said Reps spokesman Zakari Mohammed led others to the APC secretariat where they collected the form for Speaker Tambuwal.
Recall that Tambuwal, while defecting to the APC two weeks ago, gave political developments in his home state, Sokoto, as the reason for his action. 
It was taken for granted that Tambuwal would be picked as the APC consensus candidate for the Sokoto State governorship election but now all that seems to have changed...

Why We Won’t Sell War Helicopters To Nigeria – US

The United States has defended its refusal to sell cobra helicopters to Nigeria, saying the Government is free to buy fighter jets from any other country.

“Nigeria has purchased helicopters that originated in countries other than the US and nothing in our decision prevents Nigeria from obtaining weapons and equipment from other sources,” its State Department spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, said on Wednesday.

Psaki was responding to questions from journalists on the allegations by the Nigerian Ambassador to the US, Prof. Adebowale Adefuye, that Washington declined to sell lethal arms to Nigeria.

Adefuye had also told members of the Council on Foreign Relations that Washington was not doing enough to assist Nigeria in combating the Boko Haram insurgency in North-East zone of the country.
He said, “The U.S. government has up till today refused to grant Nigeria’s request to purchase

Charles Novia slams Chika Ike's Manager, calls her an Industry lap-dog

Just incase you haven't been following this story, during Chika Ike's recent Dubai trip, Charles Novia criticized her for showing off ....Her manager  Serah Donald then took to social media to blast him, calling him a failure and a jealous under achiever ..Well, Charles Novia has given a wicked response on his blog titled A SALVO FOR SERAH:
I have mulled a bit about how to put out a riposte to a character called Serah Donald who went on an uncouth rage against my person on social media recently.My first reaction was to ignore her as I saw through the statement that she really had nothing to say but perhaps wanted to gain some little fame through an open insult directed at me. And so I did.

But in retrospect (and knowing that most things put out on social media are usually twisted the other way to suit such whims, as it were) I decided not to really let it rest but to perhaps give a riposte on some of her rabid tirades.
I use the word ‘rabid’ because the impression I have of this Serah, which still persists, is that
