SO after taking some hours off blogging to attend to the family, i am back into the blogging biz. Good morning@ How una dey? What's up with you guys, what news did i miss? i know you all love to read the happenings in Naija, so lets get you updated about the current happenings. BOKOHARAM WAHALA- GOWON SAYS U.S IS NOT OUR FRIEND. With the way these boko boys are waxing stronger, killing people with impunity, taking over towns and villages in the North, and the United States, has decided that it is not time to help Nigeria yet, one of Nigeria's past leader, General Gowon has stated that U.S is not Nigeria's friend. Gowon said, “The same thing happened during the Civil War. The Americas refused to sell arms to us. I wanted them to help me with some modest aircraft so that I could chase out Ojukwu’s (Col. Odumegwu Ojukwu) B52 or B56 as they called it. That was all I wanted; not to shoot it down but to chase it away so that it does not drop bombs and kill innocent people.

In a statement issued by the project director, Ademola Ajibola, he said "In line with our desire to crown new kings and queens who have in the past 10 months been amazing and incredibly excellent in their chosen fields, do we release this tentative list of nominees". "We are breaking the norm this time as we won't be celebrating the expected but the deserving. We had over 1,000 nominations and the awards jury carefully looked into the works of the 'new hawks' who are fasting taking the society by storm by being agents of change and selected the eventual 150 nominees". "We can't continue to celebrate the same set of faces, people, brands and achievers. We need to call attention to the new ones making waves and I can assure that anyone who wins any award at #TheCoronation should be checked up after 2 years to see how far they must have gone". "We look up to support for this cause and we'd appreciate every efforts taken by our nominees to reach out to us as we don't have everyone's contact. We hope to have the world gather to see the new kings and queens when crowned in February, 2015". He concluded. Under listed are the categories and nominees for the 2015 edition of the awards event. This list is tentative & is subject to change before the final list drops on the awards official website on December 22nd when the 40-day voting exercise is expected to commence.

Obafemi Awolowo University( OAU) students are staging a protest as at theh time of this report. they are showing their grouse at Jonathan's visit. They are against the fact that all activities are at a halt, because of Jona's visit...they are also angry at the deplorable way the Nigerian Education system have become, under uncle Jona's rule. More images when you continue...
Femi with some of his kids.. Ouch!!! that is gotta hurt...Waking up at 46, to discover that kids you have loved and cared for since they were born were actually not yours..That was what Happened to Afro beat singer, Femi Kuti. 2 out of his 5 kids are not his biological children.. Below is what he told Encomium; “I did a DNA test and was told two of the children are not mine. The first two (after Made), a boy and a girl. It is very serious. I never knew somebody could give you what is not yours. I’ve three boys now. I can’t father children I was tricked to believe I am their father,” he lamented.
Thousands of people have fled the ancient towns of Kukawa and Gubio in Borno State for the state capital, Maiduguri, after a letter reportedly written by the Islamist terror group, Boko Haram, threatened an imminent attack. The fleeing residents arrived at the Baga motor park in numerous vehicles, with many moving into refugee camps while others sought out relations residing in Maiduguri. Residents say; “They had attacked other local government areas around us. So when we received threat letters from Boko Haram that they would attack us soon, we all had to flee for our lives,” said Modu Kaka, one of those who fled.
The Nigerian police has dis-associated itself from the recent release of Ogwuche, the mastermind of the Nyanya bom blast that killed scores of commuters at the car park. here is the statement by the police to that effect; ''It would be recalled that the Department of State Security (DSS), that had intelligence on the Nyanya Bombing and was investigating it, made a formal request to the Nigeria Police to assist in extraditing one Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche to Nigeria from Sudan, through the Interpol channel of which the Nigeria Police is well versed. It was at this stage and for this reason that the Nigeria Police Force filed charges against the suspected fugitive Aminu Sadiq Ogwuche, based on information that he fled to Sudan.
Its another beautiful morning! a great day to be alive. i celebrate and thank every blog reader/visitors. those who comment, and the silent readers. i know you visit this blog, because my stats shows it.#shinesteth Thanks for being loyal! without you all there is no Kemi's Blog! E shey! Nagode! Thank you!!! Oya, to today's news; OBASANJO COMES FOR JONATHA'S JUGULAR AGAIN! The fight between Obasanjo and the presidency is not going to stop anytime soon. He had previously blasted Jonathan and the National Assembly members, calling them corrupt lots, and the presidency replied him. Obasanjo isnt taking the presidency's reply lying down. he has fired his own reply, “Management of democracy without resorting to brute force and dictatorial tendencies must be cultivated,” the former President said. “As a leader, you must not deliberately do evil or condone evil. You should know that you will one day give account to God, you may cover up here, but before God, there is no cover up.”
She announced on instagram that she took that selfie in her soon to be opened shop..Glad to know that these celebs are really business conscious now.. She has named the new biz MAG DIVAS.(i think MAG stands for Mercy Aigbe Gentry.)
Good morning Fam! How are you all doing. its time for the daily dose of news in brief. This news is starting on a positive note today! I say positive, because i am tired of reporting all these boko boys's news, and anything not gruesome, and bloody will do for a change. So let's get started.... FG says it will buy cooking stove and wonder bags worth N9.2Billion for women. I wouldnt know how this would improve these women's lives, but the Federal Executive Council this last Wednesday approved the purchase of N9.2bn worth of cooking stoves and ‘wonder bags’ for rural women under the National Clean Cooking Scheme. This wonder bag is a non-electric slow cooker invented by one Sarah Collins, a South African eco-entrepreneur, who came up with the idea of surrounding the pan with cushions six years ago during a power cut in her country.... My take is, if the FG is targeting rural women, who are already used to cooking with firewood, (which is a faster way of cooking by the way) how are they supposed to be integrated into the ways of using this items. and if the items are electric powered, what is the assurance that they will be used at all, with the way electricity is in Nigeria..
My people, how una dey this early morning? hope you all are doing great...Thanks for staying with me on this blog, even though it's dry sometimes(Lol). I do appreciate your loyalty... and sorry for not be here full time yesterday, I've been busy trying to move from one apartment to another. Anyhoo, i am here now, to gist you what is going on in Naija as a whole. so, grab a sit, with some pop-corn, and a can of coke, and relax, to enjoy today's news in brief.. Suicide bombers attack Maiduguri market, kill 59
Its so sad to think that one of the most secured places in the North is being gradually captured by this Bokoharamic elements..I remember my Dad telling me about his travels to the North, when i was younger, especially Maiduguri..it used to be a very safe place for people..But of late it has become a place of terror, where market men and women can no longer go about their daily business, for fear of being killed.
The police in Lagos are battling to unravel the killers of a former director of the Lagos State Government, Mrs. Oluremi Jaiyesimi. The 63-year-old was found dead in her house in the Abraham Adesanya Estate, Ajah area of the state. It was gathered that the corpse of the former Director of Social Welfare in the Ministry of Youths and Social Development was not discovered until a week after she died. By then, her body was said to have been decomposing with maggots emanating from the corpse. Our correspondent learnt that a neighbour, who was suspicious that something was amiss after the former director was not seen for days, alerted a relation in the Surulere area of the state. The relation reportedly called a friend of the deceased living nearby, who visited the house.
This is what i call making an entrance..Lol, or should i call it the ''triumphant entry'' hehe Anyways, The man on the Horse is 9Ice, the singer turned politician, (if you haven't heard of him before) He rode this horse to the APC secretariat, to submit his nomination form.. i guess the secretariat is close to wherever he started riding that horse from.. it would have been really hilarious, riding that horse from Lekki , to Ibafo..hehe(just thinking)
I agree with him a hundred and ten percent! I wont understand for the life of me, the reasons why glorified prostitutes are being celebrated.. infact the thing tire me seriously.. One cant even go on instagram in peace, without seeing some catfights...of ladies snatching each other's BF. the most sad part is that this same useless Bf will be one married man or the other..smh the wives even know about their escapades, and sometimes call these girls out on instagram too..
Good morning Fam. sorry this morning news is a tad coming late...i was a bit busy earlier today..bhet i am here now, and that is what counts, right. #shinesteeth. Lets get started!
Presidency caught showcasing Kwankwaso’s projects as Jonathan’s achievement in North-West
I really find this funny..lol. why would the presidency show other people's works as theirs... The Nigerian presidency was caught showcasing projects executed by the Kano State Government as part of the legacy projects executed by the President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration in the North-West geopolitical zone of the country. The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati,tweeted the above image on Sunday, highlighting it as one of the key projects the Jonathan administration executed in the six North-West states of Kano, Kaduna, Katsina, Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara.

That is Nigerian president, Jonathan, on a visit to the Chadian president today 24th Nov.2014... This shouldn't have made a post, but isnt this Derby guy the same person that the Cameroonian journalist tweeted about being the one sending arms from Sudan to certain individuals in Nigeria? well God knows the intent of each man's heart and he will expose all hidden plans. #Oriegwu
The beautiful actress has reacted to the allegations of rape by one Unilag undergraduate against a man who happens to be Stephanie Linu's elder brother. she says she is devastated about the news, but that Rape is rape! regardless of whom the allegations was levelled against.. her words: I am distraught and devastated to hear of the recent allegation of rape brought against a relative of mine, Daniel Okereke (my brother). While it is a very difficult time for me, and my family; I feel the need to make clear my position, lest there be any doubt. Rape is rape, regardless of who the face of the accused is. Indeed, the irony is not lost on me. I have spent my lifelong career advocating and living my conviction that women around the world should be able to live free of violence, sexual harassment or any form of abuse against their persons. This conviction led me to be involved in numerous initiatives combating violence against women in several countries including the U.S, Liberia and Sierra Leone. The conviction also led me to place much of my energy on my work with Vesico Vaginal Fistula (VVF), a passion that dates back to my time at the University of Calabar.
Good morning Folks! here is the news in brief..(In my reporter's voice) Lol FG TO CUT OIL SUBSIDY IN HALF NEXT YEAR!. The Federal Government has said it plans to cut subsidies on petroleum products by half next year after sharp falls in global crude prices, spurred a reversal of its 2015 budget downwards. President Goodluck Jonathan submitted the revised budget figures to lawmakers last week, proposing to spend 458.68 billion naira ($2.59 bln) on petrol subsidy in 2015, down from 971.14 billion naira presented for 2014. It also assumed further cuts to petrol subsidies in 2016 to 408.68 billion naira and 371.18 billion naira for 2017. The Minister of finance and Co-ordinating Minister of the Economy, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has proposed lowering the assumed benchmark oil price for the 2015 budget to $73 per barrel from the $78 proposed in September, after global crude prices collapsed. JONATHAN'S GOVT HAS PERFORMED MORE THAN ALL NIGERIAN PRESIDENTS SINCE 1960, PRESIDENCY FIRES BACK AT OBASANJO FOR scoring the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan below average, the Presidency Sunday took a swipe at former President Olusegun Obasanjo, saying his comments at an event, weekend, where he rated Jonathan’s performance “below average” were not only untrue, but also misleading.

Cameroonian investigative journalist, Bisong Etahoben, tweeted some very disturbing informations yesterday. He claimed that a close confidant of Chadian President Idriss Derby, was arrested on Nov. 17th at the Chadian-Sudan border with arms meant for Boko Haram. He claimed it was the same Idris Derby that sent arrested Mahamat to procure the arms from sudan, and deliver to some persons in Nigeria...
This is what the aspiring legislator for the Federal House of Representatives,told Sahara TV, about those who think she has money to share/ bribe voters in the upcoming elections.., “There’s no money. I can’t match the people who have been in the system for 20 to 30 years. I’m going with God and my heart. I’m not sharing money. If you continue sharing money, it will never stop.
Source:Mailonline. Islamic Shebab extremists ambushed a bus in Kenya before executing 28 non-Muslims at point-blank range in a revenge attack for police raids on mosques in the troubled city of Mombasa. The heavily-armed gunmen ambushed the bus early yesterday as it headed for Nairobi from Mandera, a town that lies on the border with Somalia. According to AFP, the extremists reportedly separated the Muslims from the 28 victims by forcing them to read versus from the Koran. Those that failed were shot in the head at point-blank range. The death toll - which included 19 men and nine women - was confirmed by Kenya's Red Cross, which said it was attempting to retrieve the victims' bodies from the scene.
TAMBUWAL SAYS HE IS READY FOR ARREST /QUESTIONING.. The Speaker of House of the House of Representatives, Mr. Aminu Tambuwal, on Saturday asked the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Suleiman Abba, to invite him for questioning and possible arrest if found to have fallen fowl of the law. Tambuwal was reacting to the directive the IGP reportedly gave to state police commissioners to invite him for questioning over the commotion that took place at the National Assembly on Thursday. Tambuwal said the IGP did not need to seek far to invite him as he was freely available to answer any questions from law enforcement agencies, being a law-abiding citizen.
Culled from Punchng.com The traffic situation on Lagos Island this week has been atrocious. Out of necessity, I had reasons to be on the island everyday of the week. I had the most harrowing traffic experience on Tuesday. It was so bad that I had to wait in a pub till about 10pm when the roads became decongested. While in the pub, I was accosted by two gentlemen who introduced themselves as admirers of my work. We started a conversation and they told me about their intentions to check out of the country for good. I was curious to know why and they gave quite compelling reasons. These are some of the things they said. “We are checking out while we still can. Someday Nigerians will realise that the Nigerian Dream is dead, and that they have been nothing but pawns and slaves to the ruling class. When that day comes, do you think the people in government are going to let them leave? Who will create the wealth for them to loot? Nigeria will soon be locked down under the pretense of something terror-related, and no one will be allowed to leave.
Parents!!! be very careful who you leave your child with. if you must get a maid, get cameras in every corner of your house.. this video just made me loose my appetite.. i am really angry, and i really hope this wicked witch of a lady is arrested and properly dealt with..
My mouth is still hanging open from the shock of watching this evil...#shudders..
Below is what FFK wrote on his Facebook page yesterday about the ungoing feud between Rivers state governor Amaechi, and president Jonathan.. and its loaded with name calling and insults. i just hope this isnt an indirect call to war between the duo... You read and be the judge. THE POT-BELLIED CREEK HARAMITE AND HIS DIRECT THREAT ''If the PDP rig the election in 2015 we will not go to court and we will make the country ungovernable. We will form a parallel government and there will be anarchy''- Governor Rotimi Amaechi. ''It is time for the President to take off the kid gloves and put this pot-bellied little monkey in his place. Once a houseboy, always a houseboy. Once a cult member always a cult member. Once a peasant, always a peasant. If Rotimi and his Haramite friends are looking for trouble then we should give it to them in full measure. It would be a pleasure. Anytime a cockroach shows it's head it ought to be crushed. continue..
NASS Siege: Hold Jonathan responsible – Tinubu Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu while reacting to the NASS gate lock down said that “No Commissioner of Police will ever embark on such an action without the clearance of the Inspector General of police and no IGP will order his men out without approval by the Presidency. Nigerians know where the buck stops. The Jonathan Presidency must take full responsibility for the attack on the leadership of the National Assembly.”
Uncle Jona is currently waddling in troubled waters, as the outcome of yesterday's NASS chaos is that more than 120 lawmaters have signed an impeachment notice of the president... here is how vanguard us reporting it. ''MORE than 120 lawmakers have appended their signatures for the impeachment of President Goodluck,immediately House reconvenes in December. Mohammed Zakari, chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, while reacting on it said “the notice of impeachment was not on the order paper today but I’m not foreclosing that some other things took place.”
Nice body i must say.. but what's with all the 'toplessness' going around lately...first it was Kim, who was tryna break up the internet(she wished..lol) and now, Lagos socialite, Freda Francis is at it again. She posed topless/backless to promote her new spa, Oasis Medspa..i think its somewhere is Lagos. #side eye.
I want to believe that all these verbal punches being thrown between Edo state governor, and Ekiti state governor is nothing personal....i mean its because of the difference in political party right? because i simply do not see the relation between Edo governance and Ekiti governance.. Well the two governors are currently on war path, and below is what happened. Edo state sent out a press release condemning the way Fayose of Ekiti behaves, and even calls him a thug.. well Fayose wont have none of it, and has replied. See Edo 's governor's statement... “We find it utterly laughable and as the height of political childishness for the Ekiti State Governor to hide behind his media aides and seek to drag the name of the Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, into his crude gangster tactics which he has re-introduced into Ekiti politics less than two months after assuming office. “If the Ekiti Governor is too lazy to read and too politically illiterate to know what is happening in Edo State House of Assembly, we expected his psychedelic media aides to simply shut their loud mouths rather than behave like capering neophytes." Continue.. “For the purpose of education, the Ekiti Governor and his media aides should be informed that there is no crisis in Edo State House of Assembly. Fifteen members of the 24-member Assembly are members of the All Progressives Congress, while nine are members of the opposition PDP. Of the nine PDP members, three are on suspension while the seat of one member has been declared vacant. So, effectively, the PDP has five members in the Edo State House of Assembly.
