That eerie moment when a shark trails a surfer to the shore.

The thought of this makes me shudder...

Thank God the shark didnt get him, and thanks to the onlookers who alerted him of the stalker...

He didnt seem ruffled by he incident though,...saying his casual approach was a decision made on adrenaline.

speaking to Esperance express , he said:
"I'd rather try to hold my ground against it and not freak out and make a commotion," he said.

"It seemed just curious and I didn't want to give it a reason to chase me so I tried to behave casually and keep an eye on it.

"But I didn't know it came up quite so close as I was paddling into the wave to come into the beach with the other lads."

Mr Johnston came to the reef briefly before returning to the water to surf the break alone.

He said he didn't think the shark posed a threat.

"It wasn't that big, it looked smaller than a dolphin," he said.

"If you're going to say a shark is a threat every time you see one, well that's not true.

Collapsed Synagogue building wasnt registered, nor was it approved by Lagos govt.


The Synagogue Church building which collapsed early September killing 116 people was never registered or approved by Lagos State authorities, a hearing into the cause of the disaster, heard Thursday.
The Lagos State Government said the collapsed guest house within the premises of the church, had no building permit. The building collapsed on September 12, killing more than 100, majority of them South Africans.
The Lagos State Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Olutoyin Ayinde, made the information known while testifying at the ongoing Coroner’s inquest into the incident.
Mr. Ayinde told the inquest chaired by Oyetade Komolafe that investigations carried out by the ministry showed that the six-storey building had no approval.
“From our records, we saw the approval in the name of Synagogue Church of All Nations dated Jan.26, 2004,” he said. “The approval was just for the main auditorium of the church. It was an approval for a five-floor development.”
He said on a visit to the site, a government team discovered that the building had been raised to an eighth floor; making the additional three floors illegal structures.

I go to beer palour every Friday to get close to my people-Fayose, new Ekiti Governor.

Ayo Fayose

As reported by,

Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has said he patronises drinking joints every Friday in order to get close to the ‘common man’ in the state.

The governor said this in Abuja on Thursday while defending the concept of “stomach infrastructure” introduced by his government.

He told journalists that it would be wrong to assume that stomach infrastructure meant only sharing of food and money to the people.

Fayose said, “I also go to beer parlour on Fridays to stay with the common men there. Governance is not church; it is about diverse characters and you must relate with them as such.

“Christmas is coming, why do people go out of their ways to be shopping or doing other things if it is not just to make people merry?


President Goodluck Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday picked the Peoples Democratic Party nomination form to contest the 2015 presidential election on the PDP platform even as the party offered automatic second term tickets to all its incumbent governors.

The President, who spoke while picking his nomination form at the party’s national headquarters in Abuja, said he would still have bought the nomination form without the endorsement given to him by the national leadership of the PDP.

President Jonathan was endorsed as the sole presidential candidate of the party by the NEC and other organs of the party.

When two other presidential aspirants stormed the party with their supporters on Tuesday with their bank tellers and receipts from the party, the leadership of the ruling party refused to sell the nomination forms to them.

Reasons why grapes should be included in your diet..

Internet image

I was just strolling on the net when i came across this very useful health tips, and would like to share with you all. they are the benefits of eating grapes. 
there is this amazing element called  resveratrol, found in purple or red grapes, which does abso;utely wonders in the human body.
Here below are some of the amazing healing benefits of resveratrol:

Power Up Your Weight Loss

Exciting research led by MaryAnne DellaFera, PhD at the University of Georgia found that resveratrol (particularly when combined with soy isoflavones) works on the body in two ways to significantly assist with weight loss efforts: 1) it dramatically reduces cells’ ability to store fat by about 130 percent; and 2) causes fat cells to disintegrate at a rate 246 percent higher than normal.

Protect Your Heart

In research, resveratrol demonstrated the ability to improve the dilation of blood vessels, which may allow blood to flow more easily through blood vessels.  It has also been shown to relax the walls of the blood vessels, making their diameter larger, thereby lowering blood pressure, and allowing a higher volume of blood to flow through all areas of the body, delivering increased oxygen and nutrients to the body’s cells.  Another study found that just 10 mg of supplementary resveratrol resulted in a dramatic reduction in heart-attack risk factors.


Dr. Abdul-Jhalil Tafawa-Balewa
After collecting their N24m, PDP rejects two presidential aspirants

A fresh crisis is brewing in the Peoples Democratic Party over the insistence of some of its members to contest its presidential primary with President Goodluck Jonathan.

But the national leadership of the party has refused to sell its presidential nomination and expression of interest forms to two other presidential aspirants.

Two of the aspirants, Dr. Abdul-Jhalil Tafawa-Balewa and Prof. Akasoba Duke-Abiola, were at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja on Tuesday to purchase the forms, but they were turned back.

First to arrive was Tafawa-Balewa, who hails from Bauchi State. He is also the son of Nigeria’s First Republic Prime Minister, the late Abubakar Tafawa-Balewa.

It will be recalled that all the caucuses of the party, including the National Executive Council had endorsed President Jonathan as its sole presidential candidate.

Rivers Gov. Amaechi replies presidency...

This is turning into a kind of cold war ..days ago, Amaechi allegedly called president and his wife, and the presidency  replied Amaechi, through its spokesman, Abati Reuben. 
Amaechi isnt taking Reuben's reply lightly and this is what he has to say to him.

"I would want to say that the Presidential Spokesman should be careful for the kind of threats he issues to an elected Governor. He should remember that the President is not a prefect of the governor. He was elected as President just as the Governor was elected as a governor, and Nigeria is a federation.

Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi

The Presidency on Sunday came down hard on Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State over some allegations he made against President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, Patience, on Saturday.

While speaking at the All Progressives Congress mega rally held in Port Harcourt, Amaechi had, among other allegations, accused Jonathan of not implementing any project in the state and that the President had encouraged corruption as well as meddling in Rivers State’s internal affairs.

But the Presidency, in a statement by the Special Adviser to Jonathan on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, described the allegations as “false and baseless vituperations.”

Abati said the governor’s unwarranted outburst was an indication that he had lost all sense of propriety, decorum and responsible political behaviour.

He said Amaechi was peddling the falsehood in order to incite the people of the state and the country against “his assumed political foes.”

He said, “Governor Rotimi Amaechi took his obnoxious willingness to denigrate the highest office in the land in a reckless bid to advance his selfish political interests to a new level of irresponsible and rascally behaviour yesterday (Saturday) in Port Harcourt with his totally false and baseless vituperations against President Jonathan, the First Lady and the Federal Government.

Lucky Igbinedion

Igbinedion loses lawsuit to reclaim N3.3 billion lost to Venezuelan fraudsters

A legal bid by a former governor of Edo State, Lucky Igbinedion, to recover N3.3 billion he lost to Venezuelan fraudsters in a weird oil deal, has been quashed by a United States District Court.
The 2006 transaction, facilitated by former Venezuelan Ambassador, Enrique Arrundell, was enmeshed in a pile of intrigues so deep that the court ruled that the deal might not even have happened in the first place.
According to the court, beyond evidence of money transfers to New York and Swiss bank accounts, very little about the deal can be “established with any certainty.”
Part of the messy details surrounding the deal was the less-than-wholesome involvement of Nigerian oil and gas heavyweight, MRS Oil and Gas Limited, at a time when it had not even commenced business.
MRS is owned by Sayyu Dantata, cousin of Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, who is also believed to own up to 20 percent of the company.
