“Akwa Ibom people, judge o. Because we are not here for lies. We are not here for propaganda. Because their own number one campaign is corruption. As if them are not corrupt. They are not corrupt,” Mrs. Jonathan said.
“What do you call corruption? He has a house. You, are you living outside? Are you living in the forest? It’s corruption.
“In abroad, if a young boy works so hard and buy a copter, we praise the boy. But in Nigeria, if a young boy works so hard and buy a copter, we say he’s corrupt. Why?
“Why can’t we encourage the young ones to grow? Why can’t we encourage them to do better? We, our mother born us and train us, why they train us is that we s…

Interim Government: We have proof against Jonathan – Fayemi

Image
President Goodluck Jonathan and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP lied in their claim that no entreaty was made to woo All Progressives Congress, APC national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu into a proposed interim government, former Governor Kayode Fayemi said Sunday.
Fayemi, presently the director of policy in the Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation who disclosed the existence of verifiable proof of the plot also reassured the president and his aides that a future APC national government would not witch-hunt them through a probe.
Fayemi, who spoke in Ado Ekiti nevertheless cautioned the PDP led administration against allowing any harm to the person of Tinubu, warning that any such harm would mean crossing the red line as he said that Tinubu’s assertion of a threat to his life was true.
Fayemi spoke at Aramoko Ekiti Sunday during the 40-day Fidau for the late Pa Jejelola Akingbolu and Mrs Raliat Akingbolu.
Tinubu had last week alleged that the presidency had made a bait towards…

Image
EKITI State governor, Mr. Ayo Fayose, has said the alleged withdrawal of support of former Vice President Atiku Abuba-kar and leaders of thought in the North for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Major Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), was enough signal that the APC has lost the battle.
Fayose declared that the new development has deflated the ego of the opposition party to the extent that it has tactically conceded defeat few days to the March 28 presidential election.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti, Fayose added that the U-turn made by the northern leaders, which had realised that Buhari would be made to shortchange the North, had rattled the party.
The governor noted that Atiku and his supporters were already retracing their steps back to the PDP and that the North had seen the deceit in APC South-west leaders in pushing forward Buhari, even against the man’s interest.
Fayose also disclosed that the issue of health…

Image

The bombs were found in the city’s Yerwa primary school, prompting panic until soldiers destroyed the bombs from a distance.
The school was converted into a camp for Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) after Boko Haram Islamists captured the town of Bama, some 70 kilometres (43 miles) from Maiduguri, last July.
“Two improvised bombs were found in Yerwa primary school IDP camp by the people who notified soldiers stationed nearby,” local vigilante Ari Butari said.
“The soldiers asked people to evacuate before shooting the bombs from a distance, triggering two explosions that didn’t harm anyone,” he said.
“Two men were arrested on accusation that they were involved in planting the bombs. They drew suspicion because they were not known to be living in the camp,” …

Jonathan Rains Dollars On South-West Obas

Image
The March 28 presidential election has made some traditional rulers in the South-West geopolitical zone millions of naira richer, SUNDAY PUNCH has learnt.
Findings show that this change of fortunes was brought about by President Goodluck Jonathan’s quest for the support of the traditional rulers and their subjects for his re-election bid.
Jonathan, the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, has virtually relocated to the South-West since the Independent National Electoral Commission postponed the general elections. The President has traversed the geopolitical zone, holding series of meetings with traditional rulers, groups and individuals.
Analysts have said South-West voters might determine the outcome of the presidential election. As a result, the All Progressives Congress and the PDP are making strenuous efforts to win the votes of the region.

Read: Reason Why D'bang Can't Make Another Hit Song

Image
In the last 2 years, quite a lot of ‘Open Letters’ have been written by fans to their favourite pop stars. However, this one meant for Kokomaster, D’banj by Joy Isi Bewaji of Sabinews has been trending and it is not difficult to know the reason.

In the letter, Joy highlights the fact that D’banj needs to look beyond music and explore the full potentials and strength of his brand.

Read the letter below…
‘I thought we had passed this phase of Dbanj’s career? Sizing up his phallus, suggesting sexual machismo, endorsing chauvinism and being a general nuisance?
For all of his self-proclaimed virtues, we now know Dbanj is incapable of making another hit song. It’s like losing your wife and realising all those years of “great sex” was untrue, because the minute she left and you hooked up with another woman, she tells you- without the advantage of love- that your skills are lame. Dbanj has struggled. Oh dear! Every song- and you can see that he lost sleep, sweated blood, outdid himself, and upp…

Rihanna becomes Karrueche's friend over Chris Brown betrayal

Image
Some of these media outlets just make up these stories but it's still interesting. Hollywoodlife.com reports that Rihanna is more than open to having a friendship with her former enemy Karrueche and “feels sorry” for her after Chris Brown baby shocker. “Ri understands exactly what she’s going through and knows firsthand what it’s like to be tortured and disappointed Chris.

The circumstances were totally differe…
