Washington Post slams GEJ for using the #bringback hashtag for campaign

Image
Below is what Washington Post wrote about president Jonathan's supporters using the #bringback hashtag for his campaign

It was the social media campaign of the year. #BringBackOurGirls awoke the world to the ravages of Boko Haram, an al-Qaeda-linked terror group in Nigeria, and the plight of the millions of people who live in the midst of their insurgency. At the heart of the message were hundreds of missing schoolgirls, abducted in April from the remote village of Chibok by Boko Haram fighters, who vowed to make them into slaves. Continue...
The #BringBackOurGirls hashtag channeled both sympathy from abroad and local outrage and concern in Nigeria, with many angry at the government of President Goodluck Jonathan for being unable to free the captured women.
But four months later, the girls have yet to be brought back despite the efforts of the Nigerian military as well as U.S. counter-terrorism forces deployed in neighboring Chad. More than 200 girls remain missing in suspected Boko …

Have you always wanted to be an actress?

Why are you called Eja Nla?

US Air Marshal in ‘quarantine’ after syringe attack at Lagos airport

Image
A US Air Mashal is in quarantine in Houston today after being allegedly attacked yesterday by an unknown assailant at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos, wielding a syringe.

U.S. law enforcement officials told ABC News they were alarmed by the bizarre, unprovoked attack because the assailant was apparently able to inject an unknown substance into the back of one of the air marshal’s arms. The air marshal was traveling with a team of other marshals when the attack took place in an unsecured area of the airport terminal in Lagos, the officials said. He was able to board the United Airlines flight to Houston he was scheduled to work and was met early this morning in Houston by FBI agents and health workers from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Amid fears the substance could contain some form of the Ebola virus, the air marshal was immediately put into quarantine.

The FBI said he was screened “on-scene… out of an abundance of caution.” An FBI spokesperson said,

EBOLA UPDATE ON SCHOOL RESUMPTION: Doctors reject September 22 schools resumption date

Image
The Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, has rejected the Monday September 22nd resumption directive given by FG to all Primary and Secondary schools due to the Ebola outbreak in Nigeria. The NMA speaking through its National Publicity Secretary, Dr Olawunmi Layaki, said they expect all schools to remain closed until December or early next year when all Ebola suspects under surveillance have been cleared and certified free of the virus. 
"We are not happy with this decision on the resumption of schools. Schools should be shut till the last suspected case or patient is certified free of the virus. We can shift the resumption date till next year or in the next three months if that is the time it will take.  Government should have enough time to follow the standard procedure for containing   the virus. Parents have no reason to be   in a hurry because if Ebola should enter any school, it will assume another dimension. Children cannot survive isolation like adults. Nigeria is peculiar bec…

Image
OluFamous.Com has complained about this trend severally, and the worst from our observation are Yoruba and Igbo girls. Many are so arrogant they find it difficult to even say good morning to a man. How sad!

Anyway, another Yoruba guy has waded into the issue. Popular Gospel musician, Tosin Martins complained that the ladies we have today are not as submissive as our mothers and it's quite worrisome. He cited some examples that he thinks make these women proud and the reasons they have not been submissive to their husbands.

Tosin Martins has been married for 8 years now and here's what he to a Schooltips Magazine reporter about the arrogance problem in many ladies of today:  Our women today are of a different breed. Our women today are not really like our mothers. The average woman today is not as submissive as their mothers and a guy who is not ready to overlook that weakness would have a problem with marriage. These days you have to argue and defend your views and if it goes wel…
