I’ll teach you how to defeat Tinubu in Lagos, Saraki tells Lagos PDP

IMG_20180918_200556

Senate President and presidential aspirant of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr Bukola Saraki, yesterday, excited members of the party in Lagos as he assured them that he will do everything within his reach to ensure PDP produced the next governor of the state.

Saraki, who spoke at the PDP secretariat in Lagos State, where he was endorsed as favourite candidate, said he had the medicine of the man terrorizing Lagos State.

He said: “What you have been fighting for many years, you will have it during the coming election because you now have somebody that has intention and charisma to deal with those disturbing you.

“I have a medicine of the man who regards himself as godfather terrorising Lagos State. We have their formula, come next year, PDP will take over Lagos.”

Saraki warned Nigerians to be mindful of presidential aspirants promising to restructure Nigeria, if elected president.

He said restructuring agenda was not something a president could single-handedly promise as it required the input of the legislature.

He said:  “Many aspirants will tell you that they will restructure Nigeria, but don’t let them deceive you because restructuring is not something only a president can do because certain laws also need to change.

“So you need a president that has political sagacity to carry people along. But there are very few aspirants today that possess such charisma. Once I assume office, I will devolve more powers to the state.’’

On unemployment

On unemployment, Saraki said no government could create enough jobs, stressing that it was only private sector that could do so.

He said: “You need a president that can speak private sector language. So, this is the time to elect the right president to lead the country.

“In Nigeria, we are at the crossroads and we need to save the soul of this country because we have not been so divided like we are currently across the country.

In his response, Acting Chairman of Lagos State PDP, Alhaji Wali Hassan, assured the Senate President of their support, even as he commended him for the love he had for the party in Lagos.

“As you can all see, he had his primary and secondary school education in Lagos and his wife is a Lagosian, so we are going to support him,” Hassan said.

On his entourage were former Minister of State for Power, Alhaji Mohammed Wakili; immediate past governor of Kogi State, Captain Idris Wada; Dr. Doyin Okupe, former Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to former President Goodluck Jonathan; Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye; and Chairman of the defunct nPDP, Kawu Baraje, among others.

Buhari presiding over a divided Nigeria

Meanwhile, while meeting with delegates in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Saraki described Nigeria under the control of President Muhammadu Buhari as a divided nation, where citizens don’t have a sense of belonging.

He said: “Today in Nigeria, we are here at the crossroads. The country is divided and to unite the country, we need someone who will make everybody feel a sense of belonging. Today, there is no sense belonging in some parts of the country.

“We need a president that rules and represents Nigeria. We want a president where everybody will say they belong here. Where there is no unity, there can never be progress. After unity, we can talk about development and progress.”

My Opinion

These may will certainly falsely promise and do everything in their power to get your vote. It happens every four years and we still fall for it for the sake of personal interest, religion and preference. When are we going to open up our eyes to the fact that these men are not held accountable for their actions after assuming the seat. At least Trump is keeping his promise to his people, even though no one can beat him up for not doing it. These men just show so much Desperation at the election level,and we always fall for it like we are puppies. When will this ridiculous circle stop in our nation? Only God can help us.

Boko Haram kills nurse, threatens to murder Leah Sharibu

download

Boko Haram has killed one of the health workers kidnapped from Kala-Balge, Borno State, Saifura Khorsa, a midwife with the International Committee of Red Cross.

In a video seen by an online newspaper, The Cable, the deceased who was wearing a white hijab was shot from behind.

The sect also threatened to kill Hauwa Liman and Alice Ngaddah who were abducted alongside Khorsa in March, 2018, as well as Leah Sharibu, the remaining Dapchi schoolgirl in Boko Haram captivity.

At least four soldiers, policemen and three humanitarian workers were killed in the attack in Rann, Kala-Balge Local Government Area.

Liman, one of the workers abducted, had sent an audio to one of her friends, demanding that her parents be informed that she had been kidnapped.

Liman and Ngaddah, a mother of two, who worked with United Nations International Children Fund, were the ones in captivity among the three people abducted in Rann on March 1.

According to The Cable, the insurgents claimed that they had contacted the government over the captives but did not get any response.

“We contacted the government through writing and also sent audio messages but the government has ignored us. So, here is a message of blood,” said a spokesman of the group who did not give his name.

“The other nurse and midwife will be executed in a similar manner in one month, including Leah Sharibu,” the sect threatened.

The ICRC in a statement on Monday by its spokesman, Aleksandra Mosimann, condemned the killing, and described the action as sad while calling for the immediate release of the two others still in captivity.

The statement read, “The International Committee of the Red Cross condemns in the strongest terms the tragic killing of its abducted colleague Saifura Khorsa.

“It is appealing to the armed group to immediately release a second ICRC midwife and another health care worker taken in north-eastern Nigeria in March.”

The statement quoted the head of the ICRC delegation in Abuja, Eloi Fillion, as saying the murder was devastating.

He said, “Saifura moved to Rann to selflessly help those in need. Our thoughts are with her family and other loved ones at this incredibly difficult time.

“At the time of their abduction, Saifura, as well as our colleague, Hauwa Mohammed Liman,  and Alice Loksha, a nurse working in a UNICEF-supported centre, were providing essential antenatal care to communities in Rann, whose population has more than doubled after an influx of people fleeing violence.”

“We urge those still holding our colleague, Hauwa, and Alice: release these women. Like Saifura, they are not part of the fight. They are a midwife and a nurse. They are daughters, a wife, and a mother – women with families that depend on them,” Fillion stated.

Since the women’s abduction six months ago, the ICRC said it had made sustained and committed efforts to secure the three healthcare workers’ release, stressing that it would continue to do everything in its power to ensure that Liman and Loksha were released and returned to their families immediately.

ICRC, in another statement by its Communication Officer, Eleojo Akpa, said it condemned the murder. It asked the Boko Haram insurgents to release another two workers still in their captivity.

Meanwhile, the United States has condemned the murder of Khorsa, describing it as a heinous and inhuman act.

The US embassy in Nigeria in a statement said, “We utterly condemn this heinous and inhuman act and stand in solidarity with the ICRC and all those who work in service with the Nigerian people.”

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday, condemned the killing of Saifura.

A statement by Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, said, “The government of Nigeria strongly condemns this reprehensible and inhuman act. No religion permits the killing of the innocent.”

                          Opinion:

Someone is definitely going to a great to take president Buhari out of that seat. So  for God knows how long, this Boko Haram sect guys  were all quiet and inactive and  even  turning a new leave. So how come now, just when many people are forcing their way into the seat of presidentity, and suddenly the same sect has been awokened and even killing the women in their captivity and threatening to kill more. This is once again a reason for this evil politicians to use every thing they have to make the president look bad. This innocent woman’s life was used to in the dirty political of this country. These power hungry northern politicians will stop at nothing to show their Desperation. This is just sad. May she rest in peace.

Abuja residents panic as military fighter jets was spotted over houses.

images

According to PUNCH, There has been panic in Jikwoyi, Nyanya and Karu satellite areas of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, over some military fighter jets reportedly hovering over houses and creating deafening noises.

Residents told PUNCH Metro that the jets had been combing the areas since Saturday in “a war-like manner.”

It was gathered that the military aircraft, said to be about seven, flew on Monday at low levels in the Three Arms Zone and Asokoro areas of Abuja, creating panic for passersby and people going about their business.

One of the eyewitnesses, who gave his name as Umar Bichi, said the noise of the military aircraft flying at low levels made communication impossible, while some people also scampered to safety because of the effect.

“We were in the office around 1pm when the fighter jets flew almost at a landing level. There were about seven of them which I counted. The noise was deafening and it created panic for everyone such that some people thought it was a terrorist attack,” Bichi said.

The Nigerian Air Force on Monday confirmed the deployment of fighter jets to fly around at low levels.

The NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, Commodore Ibikunle Daramola, said the deployment was meant for rehearsals of aerial display in Abuja ahead of the October 1 Independence Celebrations.

He said, “The NAF will carry out aerial display as part of activities to mark Nigeria’s 58th anniversary celebration. Consequently, there will be movement of NAF aircraft within the Federal Capital Territory from Monday to October 2, as NAF pilots commence rehearsals for the occasion. “Fighter aircraft will be flying at low levels during the rehearsals. The NAF, therefore, wishes to advise members of the public not to panic but to go about their normal business.”

badgalriri-1537220545125

Rihanna has shared the beautiful set of photos from her #Allure cover shoot, which weren’t  like what we are use to getting from the star,  but we still consider it ok, following the fact that she was being interviewed about her love for makeup and creating them for the word to enjoy. But however, the fans are not sure of the outcome of her shoot, because it looked different from what we are use to seeing from her. Looking like what we saw ik the early 2000. But then again, it is Rihanna and  she could care less for what is being said about her look at any point in time. Here  are the pictures.  What do you think?

Model who went into labour after walking Rihanna’s Savage X fenty show, writes her a letter.

obyoriji-1537218744793

Just when everyone was proud of Rihanna for involving every category of woman on her show and celebrating their bodies just the way they are, she even had a pregnant Slick Woods walk the show. While the slim Slick Woods was not particularly with a very purtruding belly, no one who didn’t know her to guess that she was already in her ninth month. The model gave birth to her son just hours later and pen down a letter of appreciation to a happy Rihanna.

I met you during the Fenty Puma season 2 show in paris- it was my first time out of the country.  I always thought your a hit was made for me,and I wanted nothing more than to model for you. So hearing that I was cast in the show had me ecstatic. That you continued to use me was just surreal as business turn family. You introduced me to a more mainstream level of exposure. I was famous for all of the wrong reasons before. People like the idea of slick, but you gave me countless platform for people to actually fall in love with who I am. You made inclusivity cool and that is evolutionary. Now people are putting toward inclusion rather than putting money towards a certain supremacy. It is a beautiful pace, and you have my loyalty untill the end of time. My gratitude for the growth,love and support you’ve in my life will never subside. You are a true angel and the most multifaceted immortal boss I have ever met. I am so thankful for you but you knew that.

Slick Woods Model.

Rihanna replied : @badgalriri – @slickwoods 😩😩😩 I love you soooo much! Thank you for these beautiful words from your open letter in @allure !!! You have been just as significant to my platform sis! And you bout to knock motherhood out the park! ❤️💋💪🏿

Remy Ma and Papoose to star in a new VH1 reality show.

Screenshot_2018-09-17-21-55-57

My favourite love and hiphop couple seem to be capturing more than my heart. Their composure and cuteness together are obviously being noticed by the world. The couple who have been in love for as long as it took them through thick and thin. While in the prison, miscarriage and now expecting a child together. The hiphop couple are incredible together.  They hold eachother down and promote just about everything they are both involved. I specifically loved the fact that theyou don’t engage in the numerous fights going on in these reality shows, whoxh could be the reason why they havery landed just another one. Remy posted the news of their new show on her instagram page while gearing fans to get ready for the show which is clearlying going to be about  LOVE.

When people say ” you act like a girl” it use to get to me, but not anymore — Denola Grey

denolagrey-1537104686495

“You act like a girl” you act like a woman” That used to get to me, until I realized that taking it as an offense was a huge problem as well. Why would I be offended because my mannerism fit the script of something of am half of?

Furthermore,  the use of my mannerism being  feminine, as an insult further perpetuates and feeds into heteronormative patriarchal ideals where women are seen as less-than, weaker or possessing  qualities that men should not aspire to.

Along the journey of trying to blend in and fit into the jigsaw puzzle of what masculinity should be, I got to end and found out that ultimately it is empty.I had only found fragment of myself in there… Not the full picture.

From TheBossNewspapers.com

“Silas Adekunle, Nigeria’s 26 years old Robotic Engineer, has emerged the highest paid in the field of Robotic engineering, the world over.

Born in Lagos, Nigeria, Silas Adekunle is the founder and CEO of Reach Robotics, whose company is reputed to have developed the world’s first gaming robots. He graduated with a 1st class degree and has a four year background in robotics.”Here is a great interview where he talks about his journey and the importance of opportunity.

“…Creating an environment that gives the opportunity and allows you to take advantage of that opportunity – (the right people, grants, space to work out of, connections etc) once opportunity is there you can then decide what to do with it.”

“But if the opportunity isn’t there, no matter how brilliant, hungry or ambitious you are, you will never be able to do anything with it. Opportunity would be what I’m most grateful for.” Silas Adekunle
(Scary thought!😱)

We absolutely must strive to create opportunities for our youth to thrive.
