Aero contractos, First Nation, are not folding up- NCAA says

Authorities at the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority NCAA have come out to debunk reports that airlines, Aero contractors and First Nation, were folding up. This rumor followed the suspension of operations by both airlines. The Director-General of the NCAA, Capt. Muhtar Usman, in a statement released today, said the decision for the airlines to suspend their operations was taken so as to ensure that they carried out the required maintenance of their aircrafts. “The First Nation Airlines on its part is in the middle of an Engine Replacement Programme for one of its aircrafts. Another aircraft is due for mandatory maintenance as allowed by the regulatory authority.In these circumstances, these airlines clearly cannot continue to undertake schedule operations, hence the inevitable recourse to self regulatory suspension.”NCAA boss maintained that both airlines had not folded up but that they were “merely suspending their operations temporarily to enable them undertake certain operational o…

Nigerians on Social Media React to PDP's Call for Buhari's Resignation

President Muhammadu Buhari The main opposition party of Nigeria, People's Democratic Party earlier this week called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign, following the economic woes of the country in the last 15 months which has seen the naira fall to an all time low at the interbank and parallel markets, increased inflation at 17.1%, 4.8 million loss of jobs, folding up of several multinational and local companies amongst other problems.

"I married my husband so people could stop calling me an evil mistress'- says Ese Walter who had an affair with COZA pastor

She revealed that she didn't love him when they got married two and a half years ago and had issues trusting him so many months after marriage. She says she has gotten some help and is currently dealing with all the issues. She shared the photo above and wrote; "When I agreed to marry him two and a half years ago, I didn't love him. Heck I didn't love my own self. I just needed a change of story. I needed to stop being the girl everyone called an evil mistress and "graduate" to somebody's Mrs. I thought the Mrs title was going to save my ass and bring me some sort of redemption. I was wrong. 
Calling what happened next a disaster is putting it mildly. Weeks into living together brought out the worse in both of us. I thought I made a mistake. I didn't trust him so why was I married to him. We would argue over everything and I convinced myself I wa…

Darryl Howard, who was sentenced to 80 years in prison after a 1995 court trial was released from the Durham County Detention center in North Carolina on Wednesday after spending 21 years for a crime he didn't commit. 
Howard was convicted of the 1991 strangling and sexual assault of 29-year-old Doris Washington and her 13-year-old daughter, Nishonda., but the judge yesterday threw out the double murder conviction and ordered Howard's immediate and unrestricted release from prison, saying there was no DNA evidence unavailable at Howard's 1995 trial.

DNA tests unavailable at the time of Howard's ori…
