In The Interest Of The Nation, Stop Pipeline Bombings, Buhari Begs Militants

Yesterday during the breaking of his Ramadan fast with leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC)  at the Presidential Villa, President Muhammadu Buhari pleaded with Niger Delta militants to soft pedal on the bombing and destruction of oil and gas installations. He asked those close to the militants to prevail on them to take it easy in the interest of the nation.

“I honestly don’t know how many factions the militants are in the Niger Delta compared to the Northeast where you have Boko Haram,” he said. “The technology being deployed by the militants to destroy oil installations is high tech.The way they can go on high sea and international waters and target oil installations is a national problem. It is affecting development.

“No insurance company will want to insure installations that will end up being blown up and no banks will want to finance such installations. “Those of you who have friends among the leadership or even the militants themselves should plead with them in the name of God Almighty to take it easy.

My New Faith Will Not Affect My Movie Roles - Mama G

Nollywood actress, Patience Ozokwo, announced that she has given her life to Christ. In this chat with Saturday Beats, the actress talks about how she manages her new Faith and career as an actress.

“I did not just give my life to Christ. I have been a Christian all my life. The problem was that there were some compromises God wanted me to remove from my life. He wants me to be the face of Christianity so that when anyone sees me, they will know that I am a child of God. The world has mingled with the church a lot and there is no difference between the world and the church. The way the worldly people dress is the way Christians are dressing nowadays. God told me he does not want his people to dress in that manner anymore. The men would plait their hair and use earrings, all these things are making God angry and even the women should be modest according to the way it is written in the Bible. People should be known to be Christians through the way they dress, talk and approach life situations. You cannot call yourself a Christian and you drink alcohol. God does not want all that. I did not just repent now, I have been a born again Christian all these years, it is just that everybody has gone astray and we are now like unbelievers. That is what God said.

Senegal Ex-President's Son Jailed For Corruption Released

Karim Wade, the convicted son of former Senegalese president Abdoulaye Wade, has been released from prison in Senegal after being granted a presidential pardon.
Wade was immediately flown to Qatar after President Macky Sall's decree early Friday.
He was initially sentenced in 2012 to six years in prison and a fine of $240m for illegally accumulating at least $200m while serving as a minister during his father's 12-year rule.

The court ruling said that Wade had hidden away funds in offshore companies in the British Virgin Islands and Panama.
