Not Everybody Is Qualified To Marry- Ojekanmi

Abraham Olusanjo Ojekanmi is an author, counsellor and the founder of the School of Marriage, International. Mr Ojekanmi who has touched many marriages says not everybody is qualified to marry and empazied he does not believe in divorce too, because the worst marriage is better than divorce. He also spoke about the best age to get married while chatting with Rita Okonoboh of Tribune. His words;

I don’t always come to that point because I believe even the worst marriage is better than divorce. When a couple divorces, it means they have failed. If people view it from that point of view, then it will be avoided at all costs. At the point of divorce, people don’t always know the impact. The destinies of the children involved are shattered and many other things are affected. Continue below...

Has God Cursed Nigeria? Etcetera Writes

I’ll like to state that I am writing as a Christian, and one who is tolerant of other beliefs. And I do not want this to be seen as a debate whether or not God exists. So, you religious hammer throwers should hold on. But feel free to read if you can shed your holier-than-thou skin momentarily, and see the premise of this write-up.

For so long, I have wondered whether or not God curses nations, long before I started wandering back and forth in my faith. What brought the thought back to my mind more forcibly this time is the recurring crisis this country has seen in recent times and the political rhetorics and lies used to choke back the cries of the people. We have constantly prayed for God’s deliverance upon this nation. Has he answered? Yes! and he will continue to answer. But he has also blessed us with a free will to decide our paths.

Surrendered Insurgents Won't Be Killed, They Will Undergo Rehabilitation- FG

The Federal Government yesterday said members of Boko Haram who had surrendered to military authorities would be rehabilitated before being reintegrated into the society. Coordinator of the National Information Centre (NIC) and Director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Mr. Mike Omeri, said this at a briefing yesterday in Abuja.

He explained that the rehabilitation strategy, as contained in the counter-terrorism document launched by the government, would be strictly followed in handling the surrendered insurgents.

“Those terrorists, who surrendered their arms and embrace peace will undergo the process of de-radicalisation and rehabilitation, so that they will be admitted into society and given the opportunity to continue contributing their own quota to the development of this country.

“But for those who insist on carrying arms against their country, against their fellow citizens, they will have themselves to blame," Omeri said.

Fake Uti Nwachukwu Exposed! Read Chats

So this chic Temmy got an invite from a Fake Uti Nwachukwu on BBM, obviously knowing it’s not Uti, cos Uti has warned people several times online to be aware of the fake guy going around, pretending to be him. She then played along.

He felt he could lure her into bed by offering her a N12m modelling contract. He asked her to pay a certain code fee and asked if she could sleep with a certain man (which will definitely be him) so she could get the contract without going back and forth. The girl knew it was all a hoax but played along. After the guy saw she wasn't forthcoming after so much pressure, he quickly deleted her so she won't expose his pin. She later came online to tweet their chats at Uti. 

That’s how this one would have taken her money and still steals her ‘pride’….lol awon ole. The munched chat after the cut.

Yoruba Speaking Actresses Can’t Survive On Acting Alone- Iyabo Ojo

                                                 Iyabo Ojo and her colleagues at a party last weekend
Iyabo Ojo has let the cat out of the bag by confirming what a lot of people have assumed over the years on how actresses survive. Iyabo says most of her colleagues can’t survive on acting alone, and that is why she also has different businesses she runs. Hear her;

It is not possible for Yoruba speaking actress to rely on movies alone. How do you want to survive on that? Acting is just something I like to do, whether it is rewarding or not. Like I said, even before I became an actress, I have always been into buying and selling of goods. I was even into property at a particular point. The most important thing in life is to learn how to manage what you have to make the best out of it’.

Iyabo a mother of two owns a beauty salon and spa in Ikeja and also runs an event management company, Fespris, a combination of the names of her kids, Festus and Priscilla.
