APC On PDP: Everything Built On Fraud, Corruption And Evil Will Collapse!

All Progressives Congress (APC) in Osun State has described the massive defection of prominent members of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC as the hurricane that will eventually dismantle the political culture of graft, corruption and impunity in governance in Nigeria.
Reacting to the defection of 37 PDP members of the House of Representatives to the APC, the party said, "This is a unique situation which will resonate throughout the country and cripple the forces of retrogression that have been at the core of the country's descent into a banana republic."
A statement signed by Osun APC's director of publicity, research and strategy, Barr. Kunle Oyatomi said, "It will be a costly error for anybody to reduce this event to a sheer struggle for political power."
According to the APC, "A force perhaps, beyond our comprehension, has struck at the monstrous head of evil in Nigeria right there in Abuja, which will cause the PDP house built on sand to collapse with a thunderous sound," adding that, "things cannot be the same anymore with the ruling party because what held it together has melted from its own heat - corruption, graft, mismanagement of funds and total misrule of Nigeria."
The party referred to the utter misuse of illegitimate violence to muzzle dissent and terrorise opposition parties, rig elections and frustrate the will of the majority of the people, as a crime that was playing out with impunity in several states.
"The wind of change does not recognise obstacles," the APC said, adding that "everything built on fraud, corruption and evil will collapse. The PDP cannot be an exception."

BLOODY WATER: Graphic Pictures Shed Light on Annual Whale Kill

For more than four centuries, the dwellers of the remote Faroe Islands located 200 miles off the coast of Scotland have been killing pilot whales for blubber and meat.
Recently, the gory tradition has piqued the interest of an American photographer with ties to the region who travelled to the archipelago to capture the horror and grotesque beauty of the annual whale hunt.
Benjamin Rasmussen, of Denver, visited Faroe Islands, a protectorate of Denmark, to shed light on the startling practice in which entire villages go out in boats, herd pods of pilot whales close to shore and then cut their necks, turning the waters red with blood.
After the hunt, which takes place every summer, the blubber and meat of the slaughtered animals is distributed among all the members of the community.
'It is an incredibly bloody and horrific spectacle, but so are the factory farms and slaughterhouses that raise American beef, pork and poultry. It is just that those abattoirs exist behind closed doors,' Rasmussen told the blog FeatureShoot.
For years, animal rights activists around the world, including the non-profit organization Campaign Whale, have been railing against the practice of killing whales, calling it inhumane, barbaric and completely unnecessary. It is important to note that pilot whales are not an endangered species.
However, the Faroese, who number around 48,000, are extremely protective of their cultural heritage and customs, chief among them the whale hunt, which dates back to the 1500s.

ULULATIONS over the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, calling off its five-month-old strike have overtaken the damage the long-drawn dispute has done to education. How do we ensure that in the new year, another ASUU strike does not occur?
What appears to be important is the fact that the lecturers are returning to the classrooms. Government is relieved that it has stopped the embarrassing headlines of universities that have lost five months of academic activities while haggling over a 2009 agreement.
How important is education to the authorities? How would the lost learning time be recovered? What is the quality of certificates the students would obtain after the long absence from school?
ASUU�s refusal to call off the strike until government produced proof of depositing the money to meet its demands in the Central Bank is another chapter in government�s relations with ASUU. Other labour unions would adopt the same measures in resolving own issues.
Government has failed to gain the trust of labour unions. When the Academic Staff Union Polytechnics, ASUP, went on strike, government did not speak to the union for three months. The issue remains partially resolved. Governments sign agreements with no intention of keeping them. The disputed 2009 agreement is due for re-negotiation, yet it has not been implemented.
Our governments should change their policies of planning for immediate needs. ASUU is not the only labour union in education. Its strike that took so long to resolve is not the major challenge education faces.
At the foundational levels, challenges with number and quality of teachers, teaching aids, classroom space, learning environment, and curriculum persist. The thinking that once the universities are open, education is on the proper ken is deceptive. Higher education is at most vacuous when foundations at the primary and secondary school levels are ignored.
Governments urgently need to address these issues as well as the bureaucracies in education. They are wasteful; savings from emerging them could release funds for core education.
What are governments� plans beyond depositing N200 billion to end the ASUU strike? How would they tackle sustainable funding to stem another wave of strikes next year? Would governments ever consider education important enough that it should run without disruptions?
Thousands of conferences held annually on the future of education are mere talk sessions that hardly improve education. When will the changes be made? Do governments require strikes to realise the importance of education? What are governments� plans for education?
Unions, which always consider the welfare of their members as a first charge, cannot determine the future of education. Governments should provide sustainable means for funding education, not to avoid strikes, but to underline the importance of education.

The 60 year old actor has been absent from the movie scene for quite a while now because his condition has become critical according to family sources.

Some of his colleagues are not even aware of his current health situation.  

PHOTOS:Drug smugglers jailed after importing £2 million of cannabis in crates of ONIONS!!

The gang set up a fake grocery business as a front for bringing in the drugs from the Costa del Sol
Four smugglers who imported £2 million of cannabis hidden in crates of ONIONS have been jailed.
The gang set up a fake grocery business next to the north west's busiest fruit and veg market as an elaborate front for the deal.

Paul Farrell was jailed for five-and-a-half years

Gary Wilkinson was jailed for six years

Stephen Potter was jailed for six years

Andrew Soloman was locked up for nine years

They set up a company called 'Walker and Sons' next door to the New Smithfield Market in Manchester in August 2011, the Manchester Evening News reports.
A sign was put up above a unit at Norbury Court, Openshaw, and a website set up claiming the company had been going since 1958.
They arranged for 375kg of cannabis to be smuggled to Manchester in 20 pallets of onions after travelling to Costa del Sol to clinch the deal.
A genuine shipment of groceries was organised in a dummy run.
But officers from the National Crime Agency had been secretly bugging their unit and caught the gang red handed minutes after the consignment arrived at the unit at 7am on October 16 last year.
At Manchester Crown Court Gary Wilkinson, 50, formerly of Astley, Wigan, and Paul Farrell, 34, formerly of Clinton Avenue, Fallowfield , were jailed after admitting conspiracy to import cannabis.
Wilkinson was jailed for six years, Farrell for five-and-a-half years.
At an earlier hearing Andrew Soloman, 46, formerly of New Beech Road, Heaton Mersey, Stockport, and Stephen Potter, 41, formerly of Paisley Avenue, St Helens, Merseyside, were both jailed after admitting conspiracy to import cannabis.
Soloman was locked up for nine years after also admitting being concerned in the supply of heroin. Potter was jailed for six years.
Each of the gang had lined up buyers for their share of the drugs and when they were caught they were packing the resin and skunk cannabis into boxes for wholesale distribution.
Steve Baldwin, head of Investigations for the NCA, said: “This was drug trafficking on an almost industrial scale.
“These men were key players in a criminal organisation that had the ability transport huge amounts of cannabis across international borders. They were motivated by the chance to make huge profits.”

Mother of 4 kills husband over N100 in Ilorin!!

Tragedy struck, yesterday, at Oloje area of Ilorin when a housewife simply identified as Mariam allegedly struck her bricklayer husband to death with a stick following altercations  between them over N100.
Vanguard reliably gathered that the woman, a mother of four all late, had recently returned into her matrimonial home after she parted ways with her  husband following irreconcilable differences.
The incident which occurred yesterday, had since thrown the community into mourning as sympathisers thronged the deceased’s compound.
An eye-witness told Vanguard that  their relationship went sour again yesterday morning, leading to a hot argument between them  over N100 which the woman was said to have demanded from the husband.
The deceased,the source added, was said to have told the wife that he had no money which did not go down well with the wife thereby degenerating into a hot argument between them.
During the process, the wife was said to have picked a stick and hit the husband on his head and he fainted.
He was immediately rushed to a nearby private hospital where he was pronounced dead.
As the news of the man’s death filtered in,the woman on realising the gravity of the incident was said to have locked herself up in a room and inflicted wounds on her body using a razor blade.
To avert another tragedy, residents of the area, according to sources, forced the door open and dragged the culprit out naked before the police were invited to effect her arrest.
When Vanguard visited the decease ‘s  family compound,family members  and resident of the area maintained sealed leaps.

Wait until we give go ahead, Delta ASUU tells striking lecturers

ALTHOUGH the Delta State Commissioner for Higher Education, Prof. Hope Eghagha has called on students to return back to classes, the leadership of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in the State led by Dr. Emmanuel Mordi is insisting that lecturers should still hold on until necessary protocols are concluded. 
He has therefore told his colleagues to remain at home until they get the green light from the local ASUU over the suspension of the strike.
Mordi insisted that “after the suspension of the strike by NEC and briefing of DELSU congress on the outcome of NEC meeting lecturers will be free to resume teaching.
“The University administration as the University Senate may direct, will make the revised academic calendar public and all things being equal, this should happen in the next 96 hours”, he stated.

Commissioner Hope Eghagha made the appeal at the official handover ceremony of e-library complex at the Anwai-Asaba campus, weekend while urging parents to ensure that their children and wards go back to their campuses as government had invested much in the provision of educational facilities in DELSU and other state-owned higher institutions.

Senator Yerima Divorces His 17-Year-Old Egyptian Wife, Marries Another 15-Year-Old

Three years after marrying a 14 year old Egyptian girl named Marian, which was widely protested in Nigeria, former Zamfara state governor and serving senator of the federal republic of Nigeria, Sen. Ahmed Yerima, 
has reportedly divorced her to marry a new wife. According to reports, Sen.Yerima and four men, said to be members of the Zamfara State House of Assembly were in Egypt a few weeks ago for the wedding fathia of a new bride said to be 15 years old. 
Marian who is now 17 and a mother of one, is believed to be the daughter of the former governor's driver whenever he visits Egypt. The reason he divorced her is to enable him take a new wife as he's not allowed more than four wives.
The Senator is alleged to have married and divorced a few women in the last few years but has never changed his first three wives, only the fourth ones.

Sen. Ahmed Yerima this year was strongly against the deletion of the section of the 1999 constitution which pegged the official marriage age in Nigeria as 18 year, saying it was anti-Islam.

Keshi Okays Iheanacho's Trip to England to Seal Man City Deal

Keshi Okays Iheanacho's Trip to England to Seal Man City Deal
Golden Eaglets’ forward, Kelechi Iheanacho, got one step closer to joining the English Premier League giants, Manchester City, as the Head Coach Stephen Keshi released him from the Super Eagles camp in Abuja on December 16, 2013, Monday.
Ben Alaiya, the Eagles Media officer, confirmed this in statement, adding that Iheanacho’s departure from Abuja was on the heels of the request made by his father.
Alaiya said that Keshi had to sanction the departure of the player after his father, James Iheanacho, made a personal call to him requesting the release of his son for the trip to England.
“Initially a young man came declaring that he was the agent of Iheanacho, but I declined to deal with him until I hear from the family because the boy is still a minor,” Keshi said.
“It was soon after my rejection that I got a call from his father who told me that they have gotten travelling visa to the United Kingdom and that I should oblige him with his son’s release. I did and told the young man to go and do the nation proud at whichever club he finally chooses to settle down with”.
The Media officer added that Keshi acknowledged Iheanacho’s talent, but also cautioned that the player should be handled gently and professionally as he navigates his professional career.
The national team also cancelled its second Monday training session after it appeared that the close to three hours morning training session may have taken its toll on the players.
“We have to be cautious not to push the players too hard so that nobody will break down”, Keshi said.
It would be recalled that Iheanacho has been named as the Most Valuable Player at the recent FIFA U17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates, where the Golden Eaglets showed great performance and won the title.

OUTRAGE: Photojournalist Nearly Lynched by Policemen in Lokoja for Suspected Bribe Picture (PHOTOS)

Photojournalist Nearly Lynched by Policemen in Lokoja for Suspected Bribe Picture The officers of the Nigeria Police Force went violent against a photojournalist, Okanyi Enemali, who was alleged to have taken a shot of a policeman taking bribe. The incident took place in front of the Lokoja Specialist Hospital, in the evening of December 13, 2013, Friday.
About eight armed policemen were seen beating the helpless man for about 30 minutes, until he almost lost consciousness.
Then the policemen dragged him into their Hilux van which the inscription: B OPS KGS COMMAND 1.
People who witnessed the incident believe that the photo reporter needs proper medical attention, otherwise the consequences of this beating may be fatal.
As he was being bundled into the vehicle, Okanyi kept crying, “I'm a journalist, save me”.
However, the Police Public Relation Officer in the state later told SaharaReporters that the Divisional Police Officer in the area did not report any incident of such to the Police command. He said nothing of such happened in the state.
Nowadays policemen in Nigeria are getting more and more nervous over compromising pictures and videos of bribe-taking among their ranks, as the material may leak online and lead to their sacking, dropping in ranks or other sanctions.
There are still no updates on condition of the remanded journalist.

First Lady, Patience Jonathan, Changes Name To "Mama Peace"

The First Lady, Mrs. Patience Jonathan on Friday inaugurated the Subsidy Reinvestment 
and Empowerment Programme Maternal and Child Health otherwise known as MAMA Project with a declaration that henceforth she should no longer be called Patience but “Mama Peace.”According to her, the peace evangelism was what she would be preaching to bring an end to insurgency and terrorism including the menace of Boko Haram islamic sect in the country. She also stated that her non-governmental organisation, Women for Change Initiative, had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with some international health agencies and hospitals to build, equip and manage the best hospital for women and children in Africa.

The First Lady said:
“My name is no more Patience but now Mama Peace because I believe that without peace, there will be no more women, no more children and no more health sector. Without peace, the international community will be afraid to come and invest in our country. Peace is from the heart and not from the tongue or lips; not what you say but what is in you. We pray for genuine peace because peace is the key to our arriving at our desired destination as a nation. We are approaching the new year which is a year of peace, progress and so many good things to come. 2014 is going to be a year of no militancy and no Boko Haram because God will shower peace and make us take a U-turn from disaster.”

"It has come to an end"-Toke Makinwa confirms breakup with fiancee of 12yrs Maje

Toke Makinwa has finally acknowledged she and her fiancee of 12 years are over.She told City People
“I am not under any pressure to get married. It’s the society that puts pressure on women not minding that divorce rates are high. I was once in a long term relationshipwith Maje Ayida and it has come to an end. I think it’s unfair for me to speak about ourrelationship because he is not here to defend himself.  He is an amazing guy but it was not meant to be.  It’s strange being single again but I am taking it one step after the other.  One of the mistakes I made in my last relationship is that we dated for a long time. They were amazing years but they were also 12 long years. When you are faithful to someone, know what you can tolerate.  My Mr Right has to be God-fearing, who would not do certain things because he is God-fearing. He has to understand what I do and must not be selfish in any way”.
