"In Nigeria,a married woman should evoke respect for values"-Charles Novia reacts to Tiwa Savage's new video.



My tweets on Tiwa’s new video were my personal opinions. And most times, my personal thoughts could be the voice of a silent, quivering majority or a hemlock to the dense, obtuse and dim-witted minority.
The latter best describes proponents of the video who have been screaming to high heavens that there is nothing wrong with the video. Indeed, there is nothing wrong go them. How can anything be wrong to those set of people? Those kind of people who dress up and go to Church on Sundays and come out all holier-than-thou but have selective obedience to the teachings of their faith? Those kind of people, a new and lost generation mostly, who were born into a world of seamless and acceptable sexual laxities and swallow anything the mainstream American pop media spit out at them without even thinking for themselves?

PHOTOS; Man has 13 pound TUMOUR removed from his face after suffering for more than 10 years.

Stefan Zoleik spent 10 years living with the swelling, caused by a rare disease called Madelung that sees fat fibres grow wildly across his faceStefan Zoleik
before the tumor                                      with the tumor

Doctors have removed a tumour weighing almost a stone from the face of a Slovakian man.
In 2004, Stefan Zoleik developed a thankfully rare condition called Madelung disease, which caused fat tumours to grown on his face.
One of them grew from ear to ear under his chin causing people to stop and stare at him in the street.

‘Everybody was turning and looking at me,’ Mr Zoleik told Reuters the news agency. ‘It was very unpleasant. It also bothered me all the time when I moved my head.’
Finally, Igor Homola, a surgeon, spent five hours cutting away the growth and Mr Zoleik is more than happy with the resuts saying: ‘This is amazing, much better than it was before, which was horrible. ‘I don’t even feel any pain now.’

UPDATE One of the emirs attacked by the bokoharam sect is dead. + see press release by Abati on the issue.






Competent security sources confirmed that the Gwoza emir is dead.
Some sources said he died of heart attack while fleeing into the bush after the gunmen had fired several vehicles at their vehicle which forced it to stop.
“Already, arrangement is being made to bring his corpse to Gwoza from Shafa. His corpse was found in the bush,” a source said.
The emir of Uba, who is said to be younger had escaped while many of the people in their entourage have been reportedly abducted by the attackers.
It was gathered that most of the vehicles in the convoy have been set ablaze.

Boko Haram kidnapps two first class traditional emirs in Borno state



Boko Haram sect has kidnapped two first class traditional rulers in Borno state – the Emir of Uba, Ismaila Mamza and the Emir of Gwoza, Idrisa Timta, security officials aware of the incidence have told PREMIUM TIMES.
The two emirs were seized by gun-wielding insurgents at 10a.m Friday near Shaffa while they were travelling to Gombe to attend the funeral of the Emir of Gombe, Shehu Abubakar, who died on Tuesday evening at the Royal Marsden Hospital, London, where he was undergoing treatment for cancer.
The two abducted emirs were elevated to First Class traditional ruler status only in January.
The Borno state government is yet to issue an official statement on the abduction.
The abduction came 46 days after the Boko Haram sect whisked away over 250 schoolgirls from their dormitories in Chibok.

Democracy day speech by president Jonathan.



Below is the presidency's speech for the Nigerian democracy day.

Fellow Nigerians,
 I greet and felicitate with you all, today, as we mark 15 years of uninterrupted democratic governance in our beloved country.

  Our dear nation, Nigeria, has certainly come a long way and made notable progress since our first Democracy Day on May 29, 1999 when the military finally relinquished power and handed over to a democratically-elected government, marking the true beginning of a government of the people, by the people, for the people.”
 Although I have ordered a low-key commemoration of this year’s Democracy Day in deference to the current mood of the nation, there can be no doubt that the past 15 years, the longest period of sustained democratic governance in our country, have been a blessing to us, as a people.

There was a loud bang in the Kurudu, Jikoyi community in the outskirt of Abuja earlier today, and residents took to their heels, thinking it was another bomb blast.

The Senate Committee on Finance which investigated the NNPC over allegations of fraud leveled against it by the suspended Governor of the Central Bank, Mallam Lamido Sanusi, Wednesday submitted its report to the Senate saying no funds were missing.

Sanusi had spuriously claimed in a leaked letter to President Goodluck Jonathan that $49.8 billion in crude oil revenue was missing.

The detailed report according to sources at the Senate also cleared the NNPC and the Ministry of Petroleum of any wrong doing.

The report however directed the NNPC and the Ministry of Finance as well as other relevant agencies to reconcile a sum believed to be around $300 million dollars.

MUST READ: Nigerian woman and societal pressure-By Regina Askia



I just read a social media fight between two people I know and I chuckle to myself because my friend was blowing some hot words there - she was really vexed. 

Reading through the literary missiles, a few questions came to mind. Why is it that, generally when Nigerians fight their profanity centers around a woman's marital status, her age and to top off the insults, her private parts? Are these the yardsticks that we measure our women by? 

The marital status thing. Does it mean when a woman is not married she has no identity, she is less of a person or what? For a Nigerian woman to get any type of respect there has to be a man in the picture in what ever capacity? So it does not matter if you are wife number 6 at least you are wife? 

There is a vulgar saying that goes "Toto wey nobody get, na everybody get am". For real? That pretty much means that a woman unattached is nothing but a mobile body part that anyone can do anything to or with.....chaaii!! 

And so begins the race where mothers groom and condition their daughters to believe that their ultimate duty on Gods earth is to "find a man and born for am". I have often listened to educated folks down so much on women with comments like "They should have no say, after all they are going to get married off",

Monica Chidebelu and Nkem Chidebelu

Nkem Chidebelu a student of UNIJOS recounts the sad story of how she lost her mom in the twin bomb blast that happened on the 20th of this month in Jos.
read excerpts of her interview with punchng.




What is your name?
My name is Nkem Chidebelu. I am a student of the University of Jos. My mother, Monica Chidebelu, died in the bomb blast. She was 62 years old.

How did you know your mum was affected?
I was at the main campus when it happened. I heard some people saying that the blasts took place near the Jos University Teaching Hospital, and that was close to where my mum sold oranges and banana. She moved to that place when they chased them away from the previous spot she occupied. When I wanted to come down to the blast scene, one of my lecturers restrained me and told me to calm down. Later my twin sister told me about the blasts. We went to several hospitals to look for her but we did not find her. There were also conflicting reports in some hospitals.When we described her, we were told some people had come to claim the body.

22-year-old mother who sold her baby for N430k arrested.

chinelo
Twenty-two-year-old Chinelo Huma, who sold her one-month-old baby for N430,000 has been arrested by the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit of the Enugu State Police Command.

Three other women, Nkechi Ugochukwu, Maria Asomba and Esther Obi, who allegedly played roles in the sale of the baby were traced to Onitsha, Anambra State and arrested by the police.

Enugu State Commissioner of Police, Mr Mohammed Adamu who disclosed this, told Sunday Sun that Huma got pregnant while she was engaged in prostitution. Her boyfriend who was not quite ready to bear the responsibility of fatherhood rejected Huma’s pregnancy.

Incidentally, Huma already had two children, who were being cared for by her mother. So having another child out of wedlock was not an idea that appealed to her one bit and she decided to relieve herself of the burden of caring for the baby.

SAD:Teacher Recounts How He Lost Wife,Daughter & Sister-inlaw In The Jos Bomb Blast.

That morning, we all woke up quite early to have morning devotion. My wife then said she was going to visit an uncle at the old Jos Teaching Hospital. At around 8am, I said goodbye to my family and headed for the office. Later that day, at round 5pm, I got a call informing me about the bomb blasts in Jos. The first thought that crossed my mind was ‘my wife is in Jos.’ Immediately, I started dialling her number but it didn’t go through, I also tried that of my sister-in-law, but it didn’t go through too..

Vice-President Namadi Sambo Loses About 2000 Cows, Worth Over N200m To Thieves.



This is certainly not a good season for Vice President Namadi Sambo. He is not only battling to be relevant in a government he is second in command, the former governor of Kaduna State is equally contending with influential forces within the rank of some Northern governors angling to take his place as a running mate to President Goodluck Jonathan should thelatter decide to run for another term in 2015.
Beyond the political pressures almost suffocating him in the Aso Rock presidential villa, Arc Sambo’s business empire has also come under attack about a fortnight ago when he lost over N200 million to armed night marauders.
Saturday Sun gathered that the incident, which has been kept under wraps and downplayed in government circles, has greatly unsettled the number two citizen ,who is not only unhappy that gunmen could enter his premises in Kaduna and cart away his life investments unhindered, but also that almost three weeks after, security agencies, especially the police, seem not to have any clue on how a sitting vice president would be so brazenly robbed.

Breaking news! Another Bomb Blast Rocks Jos.



Another bomb blast has happened in Jos, the capital of plateau state.
Details is still sketchy. But sources claimed the bomb went off just opposite the university quarters. It is also claimed that the bomb was carried by a suicide bomber who got blown up before he could reach his designated target. He was said to have been heading for a football viewing centre, but blew up about 20meters from his target.
Will bring an update as events unfold.
Pray for the Peace of Nigeria.

Bishop Oyedepo tells it all in this recent interview with Punchng.

Bishop David Oyedepo

Bishop Oyedepo, founder, Living Faith Church aka Winners Chapel, granted his first interview in 2014 to Saturday Punch and he cleared up a whole lot of insinuations and speculations about the church's wealth, University...he also spoke about why it seems its only the rich that attend his church!

See excerpts from the interview below: 


You preach as if you have committed the entire Bible to your memory. How many times have you read the Bible?
The Bible is an unfinishable book, you keep reading. A student once met me after a meeting and said that I quoted 68 scriptures verbatim. He asked if I memorised the scriptures, I said no, I eat them. No matter how unintelligent you are, you can’t forget the food you ate last night, except you are mentally derailed. If you are given three seconds, you could tell what you ate about five days ago, if you truly ate it. So, the Bible is just not for reading, it’s actually for eating. I’m not among the people that have read the Bible three or five times, I don’t know how many times I have read the Bible and I’m not planning to know how many times. I just know it’s my delight to feed on it daily, and I can’t claim to have finished reading it.

Is it true that church members here pray for the dead and they wake up, even in the mortuary, how do they do it?
(Cuts in..) By tapping them and saying wake up (laughs). We must know the source of everything that we experienced or observed. No man has the power to raise the dead. Jesus is the only one that has the keys of resurrection and death in his hands. So, we rely on him to do those things and he quickens whosoever he wills; he determines who to bring back and who not to. We only believe in God to bring back whosoever he wishes, if we have the key, we would be delighted to bring back everybody, and even open a clinic for bringing back the dead.

WORDLESS POST.

(huh!!!) the claim is that the wedding was staged for a reality TV show.it is also being rumored that the said TV show is not been aired due to the fact that Maje has refused to go on with the show as planned. 

What Toke Makinwa told her teeming fans was that the wedding was a surprise and it was totally unplanned. According to her, there were no invited guests because did not know she was even get married till that day. However, Kunbi Oyelese of April by Kunbi, who made Toke Makinwa’s registry outfit debunked the claim, saying she was called by Toke, three days to the supposed wedding. and as such Toke knew about the wedding beforehand.
Kunbi Oyelese, in an interview with Dolapo and Bolanle on EbonyLife TV which aired on Monday, Feb. 3, 2014, when asked about Toke's dress said:
”I worked under pressure to get it done….Toke called me up and said ”I’m getting married” and when I asked when? She said ”in 3 days” …and I am like seriously…..so I had to work towards a short deadline ….but it was all good”.
i still do not want to believe they would both stoop that low....so many questions to be answered by Toke and Maje..
