Governor Fashola renames hall to honour the memory slain Yobe students.

Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola yesterday Thursday February 27th renamed a hall that was initially named after him, to “Peace Hall’’, in memory of slain Yobe school children.
Vanguard reports that the hall was constructed by the Lagos Zonal Council of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), located at Fadeyi in Lagos.

See his speech below;
"I appreciate NUPENG’s gesture but I will rename this edifice `Peace Hall`, in memory of the lives of the children that were brutally slain in Yobe by insurgents. The Children will soon be forgotten but as a reminder to us and the need to stand up for what is right, I ask that the hall be re-named as NUPENG’s Peace Hall, as we all search for peace across Nigeria. While we pray for the repose of the souls of these young ones, it is also a moment we must stand up as a nation. Whatever language you speak, whatever faith you practise, whatever ethnic/tribe you claim, this is the time it will not show. No matter how diverse we are, we are still one people, this is a time when colours and flag do not matter and political ideologies mean nothing. This is the time we must show and respect the values of the lives of fellow Nigerians’’ The governor said.

May God rest the souls of the departed students.

WOW! Read Lupita Nyong'o 's acceptance speech at Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon.

       

Oscar nominee Lupita Nyong'o was one of those honored at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon held yesterday February 28 at The Beverly Hills Hotel in LA.

Read the acceptance speech she gave....powerful!

''Thank you Alfre, for such an amazing, amazing introduction and celebration of my work. And thank you very much for inviting me to be a part of such an extraordinary community.
I am surrounded by people who have inspired me, women in particular whose presence on screen made me feel a little more seen and heard and understood. That it is Essence that holds this event celebrating our professional gains of the year is significant, a beauty magazine that recognizes the beauty that we not just possess but also produce.
I want to take this opportunity to talk about beauty, black beauty, dark beauty. I received a letter from a girl and I’d like to share just a small part of it with you: “Dear Lupita,” it reads, “I think you’re really lucky to be this Black but yet this successful in Hollywood overnight. I was just about to buy Dencia’s Whitenicious cream to lighten my skin when you appeared on the world map and saved me.”
My heart bled a little when I read those words, I could never have guessed that my first job out of school would be so powerful in and of itself and that it would propel me to be such an image of hope in the same way that the women of The Color Purple were to me.

MUST READ: Would YOU take on your best friend's children if she died? One extraordinary woman did!

United: Jane with her son, Marco, top right, daughter Millie, top right and daughter Anni-Mae, bottom right. On her left are Gina's sons Lewis and Ashton who she is now raising
Jane with all 5 kids.hers & he friend's.


Sometimes the most profound moments happen in the most mundane circumstances. Two years ago, I was having a cup of tea with my late best friend's husband when four small words, uttered by me, made the biggest impact on my life I could ever imagine.
With those words, I made an irreversible decision that changed the course of not only my life, but those of everyone I hold dear. It would split my family in two, force me to give up my job and leave my days gnawed by guilt - but at the same time fill them with love.
The words were: 'Of course I will,' spoken in response to Shaun, husband of my best friend Gina, who'd been killed in a car crash two years earlier. In an extraordinarily tragic turn of events, Shaun had learned he was terminally ill with cancer just over a year before Gina died. He wanted to be sure their two sons would be cared for when he was gone.

General Minimah thanked the Committee for its concern and said, "...it will be the last of such from the insurgents." Continue...

The resolution, introduction by Senator Ojudu from Ekiti Central, was critical of the military's failure to pick up intelligence before the attack and its slowness to respond to the attack for five hours.

Ojudu said, "The North East calls for special attention and we should not be seating down here in Abuja discussing budget while our young ones are being slaughtered in cold blood."

It ordered the army to develop a strategy to curb to the attacks of Boko Haram using all military resources, and relocate to Maiduguri temporarily. 

All schools and health institutions to be provided with special security.

MUST READ: AGONY OF A FULL HOUSE WIFE



I saw this on a Facebook page, and i had to share. real men still exist.
please read below;

She was ambitious when you first met her. She told You everything she wanted to become. She told you how poor her family is and her dream to make it in life. You loved her and married her promising her heaven and earth. She believed and trusted you. You convinced her to have a baby first and then go back to school or pursuing her career. Now she has given you babies but you still keep her at home. You go out everyday and come home calling her useless. 

She asks for money to buy her cream only for you to tell her that her mates are out there making money while all she knows is how to waste it. You don't give her money to take care of herself but you go out there and buy lovely cars and clothes for yourself. You even have the gut to give your secretary a market list for her to go and buy things for your wife to cook; a big insult to any woman. Even when you allow her to go to the market, you make sure there is no coin left for her to buy a panty for herself.

Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala Admits $10.8 Billion Is Missing. Unaccounted fund from NNPC.



I have just been sent the following statement by the Nigerian finance ministry, which I understand it is putting out later today.

I am going to quote most of it, because it is gripping, in the context of the the decision of the Nigerian president Goodluck Jonathan to suspend the central bank governor, Lamido Sanusi.

The gloss from the ministry goes like this:

"The Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister for the Economy Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has asked for urgent action with regard to an independent forensic audit of conflicting claims of unaccounted funds made by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mallam Sanusi Lamdio Sanusi".

OMG! See how this lady was beaten and battered by her boyfriend..



OMG! ladies please beware. domestic violence everywhere... if you notice he's got a temper like that of the devil, he doesn't trust you with the opposite sex, he is as jealous as a blind bat, or his inferiority complex is huge enough to build a shopping complex, please flee for your dear life. thank God this lady is alive to tell her story..

In a recent interview with the Nation newspaper, the now single mother of one said ” I never thought I would be separated someday. Yes, it definitely hit me when it happened. But life goes on.”
She further revealed that she may be considering getting married again if the opportunity come..... 
“I don’t know, but I am not ruling it out because I am human. I might just fall head over heels in love again. But let me still be doing what I am doing. Wherever the Lord takes me, I will go. When I find love again, I will probably right the wrong things I did then. I mean I will do the right thing three times over.”

Ugandan President defies the west; signs the anti-gay bill.



Ugandan president, Yoweri Museveni has signed the anti-gay bill into law. he signed the bill at his official residence at Entebbe, near the capital Kampala, in front of govt officials, journalists and a team of Ugandan scientists who found no genetic basis for homosexuality, one of the reasons why he finally consented to signing the bill.

The anti-gay law criminalizes all acts of homosexually in Uganda and calls for first-time homosexual offenders to face a 14 years jail penalty. Continuous Sexual engagement by two homosexuals which involves a minor, disabled person or anyone with HIV AIDS attracts a life sentence.

IAm Not Signed To Timaya’s Dem Mama Records-Skales.

Timaya-and-Skales

Contrary to the reports that Skales had reportedly been signed to Timaya’s Dem Mama records following his exit from EME Records after EME decided not to extend the contract with the rapper/singer because they did not see him as a profitable investment, and hat he has moved into Timaya’s home
Skales has now come out to say those stories are false!
in his words;
It’s not true. I’m not signed with Timaya or Dem Mama Records. I’m just doing my thing. Timaya is my friend and that’s what it is.
I go to Timaya’s crib because he’s got a studio and we just vibe. I’ve got a studio too and he comes over. It’s all love around here.

On Sanusi, the Opposition and Fifth Columnists' - By Reno Omokri.


Here is an article written by Reno Omokri, Special Assistant to President Jonathan on New Media. 

Read below;

The recent suspension of the erstwhile Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria has ignited a debate on Social Media and as has become typical with many pundits, the discourse has been dominated by sentiments rather than facts.

As Sanusi has indicated that he will be challenging his suspension in court, I will not make this piece about him and recent events surrounding him. Yes, I will cite some examples of double standards as regards the approach taken by some analysts, but in my view, the matter is now best left to the courts.
What I will say however to those who are propagating the propaganda that the President suspended Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi to stop him from speaking is this: it was Sanusi’s job that was suspended, not his mouth and anyone who knows him knows full well that he will not let anything come between him and a microphone.

Anti-gay law:A Reply To Chimamanda Adichie's Article.

gay-cartoon

A couple of days back, one of Nigeria's highly rated writer Chimamanda Achidie wrote an article in defense of the gays, saying that the anti-gay law in Nigeria shouldn't be. she insinuated that being gay is an inborn thing, that it is embedded in the genes of whoever has it. anyways, one of the readers disagreed with this and has taken it upon himself to write a reply to Chimamanda through Vanguard Nigeria.
read his reply below;

Before I start I would like to ask you to ignore my grammatical errors. I’m not a writer so I have no reputation to protect in terms of grammatical errors. I write principally in response to your article on anti-gay law. I would really plead for your patience to calmly read my own view.
I have never read your article before now. I have heard of your reputation in writing and I had already rated you even when I had never read your articles. Unfortunately your sense of judgment is being questioned when I gave you the chance to create an impression because I’m not a type that takes a second chance to make a good impression.

Must read: Ugandan President Museveni's Response To Obama On Anti-Gay Bill.



I have seen the statement H.E President Obama of the USA made in reaction to my statement that I was going to sign the anti-homosexual Bill, which I made at Kyankwanzi.
 

Before I react to H.E. Obama’s statement, let me, again, put on record my views on the issue of homo-sexuals (ebitiingwa, bisiyaga in some of our dialects). Right from the beginning of this debate, my views were as follows:

1. I agreed with the MPs and almost all Ugandans that promotion of homosexuality in Uganda must be criminalized or rather should continue to be criminalized because the British had already done that;

2. those who agreed to become homosexuals for mercenary reasons (prostitutes) should be harshly punished as should those who paid them to be homosexual prostitutes; and

Must read:Segun Arinze defends AGN's visit to the presidency.



Segun Arinze has spoken in defence of AGN'd recent visit to the presidency, where Ms Fiberesima decorated the president,and conferred on him the title of the AGN's grand patron.
people have been criticising the visit, and some call it ass/boot licking on AGN's part.

here is what Actor Segun Arinze who was part of the entourage has to say in their defense;

I think it’s so unfair for anyone to criticise AGN for paying a courtesy visit to President Goodluck Jonathan. We are an Association in Nollywood and our visit was to discuss issues as it affects our Guild and the industry in general.  Everybody transported themselves to and fro.
We didn’t go begging for alms. Pls do read Madam President Ibinabo Fiberisma’s  speech which has been sent by mail to you. Kabat’s statement was totally uncalled for. We are very apolitical.  We have a right to visit GEJ after all he’s the president of the federal Republic of Nigeria,’  Segun began.
Chyke Bryan who is the president of screen writers guild is down with kidney problem. What have the members of that guild of whom Kabat is also a member done to raise money for his treatment?  They should stop poking their noses in other people’s business.  And focus on how to move the industry forward instead of bickering and sulking like Children. Making a mountain out of a molehill.’

Meet the new CBN gov. Mr Godwin Emefiele .


Meanwhile, while the house was busy rejecting the removal of Sanusi, Jonathan has already appointed the new CBN gov. his name is Mr Godwin Emefiele.

He is the Group Managing Director, Zenith Bank Plc, a position he has held since August 2010. Until then, he was the Deputy Managing Director of the bank, having been appointed into that position in 2001.

Emefiele has been on the bank’s management team since inception and has held various management positions in the bank, including serving as the Bank’s Executive Director in charge of Corporate Banking, Treasury, Financial Control and Strategic Planning.

House of Reps reject Pres. Jonathan's Sanusi removal as CBN Gov.

According to this tweet by Hon.Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the whole house has rejected the decision by president jonathan to remove Sanusi as the CBN gov. she says its all about covering up on-going investigations.

Breaking News:President Jonathan Sacks Lamido Sanusi, Appoints Alade As Interim CBN Gov.



President Goodluck Jonathan today ordered the suspension of Nigeria's Central Bank Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, weeks after the CBN Governor exposed the theft of at least $20 billion by officials of  Nigerian petroleum ministry.
 A press release issued by the spokesperson to the President, Reuben Abati explained that the CBN governor was suspended because of reports by the Financial Reporting Council claiming the CBN governor had engaged in "financial recklessness and misconduct". The release did not specifically name any particular financial crime but goes ahead to announce a replacement for Mr. Sanusi.
The CBN governor  is not aware of this, as he is currently traveling in Niger.

 Below is Mr. Abati's press release announcing President Jonathan's action.

Having taken special notice of reports of the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria and other investigating bodies, which indicate clearly that Mallam Sanusi Lamido  Sanusi’s tenure has been characterized by various acts of financial recklessness and misconduct which are inconsistent with the administration’s vision of a Central Bank propelled by the core values of focused economic management, prudence, transparency and financial discipline;

Rags to riches: WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum has become a billionaire thanks to a deal with Facebook

When WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum signed a deal with Facebook on Wednesday he became an overnight billionaire, but when he first moved to the U.S. he needed food stamps to survive. 
Koum, who is estimated to now be worth about $6.8 billion, was 16 when he moved to the U.S. from Ukraine with his mother. 
He had been raised in a rural community, in a house with no hot water or electricity, and when Koum moved to the U.S. his mother packed their suitcases with school supplies to save money.
But Koum's fortunes soon changed and on Wednesday he returned to the Mountain View welfare office, where he used to queue to get food stamps, to sign his historic deal with Facebook.

Teniola allegedly came out to speak, after tabloids carried the story of her being pregnant for 2face, because Annie defended her hubby, and that she is trying to protect her life.

in her words;

“My name is Teniola. Please I want my privacy kept secret. I just want to respond to Tuface’s denial of my pregnancy. I‘m 3.5 month pregnant for him and he is fully aware of it. His recent denial is to appease his wife and I understand that…

“Note, I didn’t receive any money from the magazine that published my story. My elder sister took my story there to draw public attention in case something bad happens to me. And I’m not really happy about it. Please I want privacy for myself and my unborn child.”

Omotola, stop blaming bloggers, you’ve scored a D minus in raising Meraiah.- Alonge Osagie writes.



This is an open letter written by the Netng writer Alonge Osagie, in response to Nollywood actress Omotola Ekehinde's grouse over some bloggers who made posts on her 14 year old girl, and caption her photos  ''hot & sexy''.
she was 'appalled' that her 'innocent' minor was termed that, and she demanded apology from the said bloggers. some of them have already taken the posts down.
in her words;

‘Thank you to everyone who wished Meraiah a happy birthday. However, going to a 14 year old’s ‘private’ online accts to post her pictures for public viewing is totally inappropriate. Her father and I are horrified as parents and guardian that a minor’s picture can be paraded online as ‘hot’ ,’sexy’ etc.’, she wrote on her official Facebook page.
But one blogger and writer for NETng is having none of that ''putting the blame on bloggers for putting her daughter in the spotlight'' thingy, and here below is what he wrote about the issue;
It should be noted that as at the time Meraiah’s photos were posted by bloggers, herInstagram account was set on ‘public’.
Dear Omotola, I’d like to say that the media has done nothing, absolutely nothing wrong and do not owe you an apology for publicising your daughter’s photos. You should be the last person pointing fingers as it clearly shows you’ve scored a D minus in raising this cute kid..

MEMO :To the men.


Its a very disgusting and downgrading trend this days. I've noticed ladies are becoming the very hardworking ones while guys are getting lazier everyday.
If you're a guy and you're lazying about while ladies are struggling hard I swear you're a BIG TIME FOOL.

As a guy you're in a relationship and your girlfriend is the relationships breadwinner, get ready 4 various degrees of insults on your male ego from her from time to time. You're not contributing anything to the relationship apart from bragging, you're a disgrace. 
No 2 ways about it you'll one day be forced to say this words to her " DO YOU KNOW IM THE MAN IN THIS RELATIONSHIP? " When a man audibly asks this question, then it simply means he's not the man. Being the man in your relationship goes without saying.
