President Jonathan and his wife are back at the polling unit in Otuoke where they were turned down earlier this morning due to the failure of a card reader. It happened to both the president and his wife. The president immediately after the card reader failure addressed newsmen who were waiting to speak with him, saying he would exercise patience and be back to be accredited. He also used the opportunity to tell Nigerians who would experience such to be patient with INEC officials and remember the devices are new.
He however got accredited manually via the incident list at exactly 11:06am, few minutes ago.

Lol, I don’t know how this is news but some twitter users who spotted a young lady driving a white
Lamborghini yesterday on Awolowo Road in Ikoyi, took some photos of the car and have been asking questions about who she is. They have also been discussing why a car as low as that should be used in a country with bad roads.

Music act Terry G has said it was actually because of controversy that he asked people to be calling him Lucifer, but deep inside him he knew what he meant was Look See Far. He also spoke about the name Terry G Zuz, saying when people started calling it Jesus, he ignored it because he loves controversy. Hear him;
“That is what they think. Jesus is a name. They should make their findings, I am a child of God and I will never blaspheme. The name Jesus has been in existence even before our Lord was born. The only comma there is Christ. I cannot call myself Christ. The spelling of my name is different. It is Terry G Zuz, not Terry Jesus. But based on the fact that I love controversy, I did not mind. It is just the same way I said people should be calling me Lucifer. I knew it was going to create controversy but what I meant was ‘look see far.’ Our elders often say that what they can see sitting down, a child cannot see it even if he climbs a tree and that is what informed the name. I like thinking out of the box.”
“When I met her, I did not even know she was an actress. That is something people do not know. I hardly watch television these days because of my schedule, so there are a lot of movie stars I do not know. Whenever I want to relax, I watch movies on my laptop. The first day I met her, she did not tell me she was an actress and I didn’t know till about a week later. Continue...

Like I told you before, it’s becoming stale as a celebrity when you have a partner and you don’t show him or her off! That’s actress/singer Adokiye’s boyfriend and he is a Russian. The couple were recently spotted together having a nice time. What we however don’t know is if Adokiye has allowed him taste her sweet apple. How do I mean? Remember Adokiye says she is a virgin and ready to do a virginity test? She also said the only thing that can make her lose her virginity then was that if Boko Haram men were ready to have it in exchange of the Chibok girls. Lol.
