I don’t owe anybody an explanation but when you meet me in person, you can always make up your mind," she said.

I Gave Him All I Had…Yet He Walked Out On Me Without A Single Word- Keturah Explains Relationship With Jim Iyke

Though Keturah Hamilton has once said in an interview that Jim Iyke was and ingrate and she still finds it hard to believe he left her after 6years with all she has gone through with him. Keturah while narrating what she suffered in the hands of her lover boy, Jim Iyke, says he makes her now feel men are mean and heartless. Jim is wicked, she said.

He made me sound and acted like a jealous lover in his reality show, I acted crazy, I didn’t mind what people will say about me, I acted like I was a jealous lover, because that was the exact role he wanted me to play. I didn’t know he was setting me up. He set me up for the world to see. I gave him all I had, I supported him, and just when we were about planning our lives, he walked away without saying goodbye. 

Oh dear, we hear these stories almost every day, but not like 6years tho. These guys won’t ever fall in love with a poor girl, they are always in love with made girls! Bottom line, keep your money to yourselves ladies, keep your money!!! Buy your sisters cars, your brothers, make your mom happy. Oh do you still have grandparents spoil them silly. Keep your money you worked hard for it, and no boyfriend deserves it. A source said she was there for Jim for years, ate her food for free, used her car in the States, lived in her house for months and what have you. He just used her, the source said.  I know there is someone reading this, who would say thank God I spend my money on my boyfriend and he has been very loyal. Thank God my own didn’t turn out like this…Really? Okay oh … we await your readers mail when he finally breaks your heart, lol.

A Punch reporter took out time to speak with some women who have been the breadwinners of their families for years. They narrated how their husbands lost their jobs, how some even got other jobs later on but claim they are too much to do such menial jobs, and so put all their financial pressures and that of the kids solely on them.

A Christian who also spoke on the matter said, it is unfortunate but the woman has no option than to stay in the marriage and carry her cross (her husband).

Oyedepo Speaks On Why Private Universities Are Expensive In Nigeria

Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder of Living Faith Church has said private universities in Nigeria are expensive because the cost of maintaining and giving quality education is high. He also criticized Nigerians about believing in spending millions of naira on parties, but can’t spend such on their children’s education. Bishop Oyedepo addressed this issue while speaking to Journalists on Friday in Ota, Ogun State. His words;

“I’m sure we all agree that education is expensive. Education carries cost; nothing of value is free. Our mission for years long, before we started any university or secondary school, was a bursary awarding church and we have not stopped doing that till tomorrow.”
“Our problem most of the time is priority; an average Nigerian can spend N1m on burial but to spend N200,000 on education (is a problem), because of wrong priority. Continue below..

Falling In Love Is Stupid- Etcetera

Sincerely, I really don’t care what all the love songs say and what the romantic movies and novels would have you believe. Falling in love is a waste of time and does no one any good. It wears off sooner than later and leaves you staring at your palms like an idiot.

I see a lot of romantically challenged people asking Cupid to shoot an arrow straight into their lover’s heart. How does anyone survive an arrow in the heart and love you right back? And again, can you be sure how good a shooter Mr. Cupid is? What if he misses and shoots her straight in the eye instead? I guess that won’t bother you too, isn’t love supposed to be blind after all?

Why We Pulled Out Of CAN- Catholic Bishops

CAN was formed in 1976 by five Christian blocs in the country: the Christian Council of Nigeria; the Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria; Organisation of African Instituted Churches, and the Evangelical Fellowship of West Africa.

Lagos Govt. Seizes Doctors’ August Salary For Participating In NMA Strike

The Lagos State Government has not paid all doctors working in government owned hospitals their August salaries for participating in the recently concluded Nigerian Medical Association, NMA, strike, which took place throughout the Federation.

It will be recalled that the doctors went on a nationwide strike, after the federal Government failed to meet their demands. The strike was on for two months, but was called off when Ebola hit some parts of the country. Before however calling off the strike, the doctors warned that no participant will be dealt with by the government, which was one of the factors emphasised on while calling off the strike.

Some of their demands back then included: the government improving residency programme in Nigeria, increasing doctors’ hazard allowances from N5,000 to N100,000 and also improving facilities in hospitals all over the country, which are yet to be met. We hope they get paid to avert another strike.

A 38-year old South African Football coach, Steven Darlugar has been arrested by the men of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, for trying to smuggle drug out of Nigeria to South Africa.

Sadly, Darlugar said they promised to pay him $6,000 if he succeeded in smuggling the drugs.
He had neatly packaged the drugs weighing 1.54 kilogrammes in a compartment before the officials at the airport unravelled his gimmick during the screening of Arik Air passengers on board to South Africa.

Upon interrogation, Darlugar, a married father of one confessed he was under financial pressure to cope with peers and he had worked hard to make it, but it all turned futile.

But $6,000 is too small for anyone to risk his/her life just for smuggling drugs, come on. Really feel sad for him. God help us all.
