No One Can Take Omoladun’s Place In My Heart, But I Have Found A New Love-Babasuwe

Almost six years after the death of his wife and movie partner, Omoladun, Babasuwe will anytime from now welcome another woman in their home. The comedian who says it will be difficult to forget the memories of his wife, said life must go on and indeed he has found a new love, but he isn’t just ready to let the world know who she is, but she is NOT an AVTRESS, if that might interest us. Speaking with Potpourri, Baba Suwe said;

“It has not been easy but life must go on. I believe whatever happens has been pre-ordained. The death of Omoladun was a great loss I cannot get over in this lifetime. She will remain my best companion. She understood me than any other person on planet earth. At times when we quarrel in the house, she would abuse me on set and that would mark the end of the issue,” he said.

Boko Haram Attacks Leave Over 2.1 Million Displaced In Nigeria

Mounting attacks by Nigeria’s ferocious Boko Haram Islamists have sent more than 2.1 million people fleeing their homes in northeast Nigeria, the International Organization for Migration said yesterday.

Revising sharply upwards its previous estimate of 1.5 million, the Geneva-based IOM agency attributed the increase to a very recent spike in Boko Haram’s six-year insurgency.

But the state-run National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said other factors were at play, such as unrelenting communal strife and the return of Nigerians who had previously fled the country.

Gani Fawehinmi’s First Son Talks About Disability In His Profession

The first son of Late Chief Gani Fawehinmi, Mohammed Fawehinmi, in an interview with Punch has expressed how it has been difficult being in the position he is and having to go to court to defend cases. The interview below;

How would you describe your experience accessing the courtrooms?

I have had a lot of constraints in accessing the courtrooms, but I had to adapt by getting people to carry me up the stairs because I am very passionate about the practice of law. And if I have to improvise to get it done, I don’t mind. Though I would have expected that the government would have done something about it because we are in the democratic dispensation and everything should be done in a globally compliant manner.

Etcetera Scores Buhari, Five F9s, One A1 & One C Out Of His 100 Days In Office

We often use benchmarks as measures of progress. ‘How is your favourite football team doing at the beginning of this season?’ ‘How many words does your one-year-old son say in a minute?’

And, of course, there’s the time-honoured measure of how well a new president is doing after 100 days in office. In case you hadn’t heard, that benchmark is here for President Buhari.

You may feel it’s a little impertinent for me to issue a report card for President Buhari on his performance during his first 100 days in office. Yes, I’m not his teacher, and he’s not my student.

But what the heck? It’s a free country and everyone else is doing it. So here it goes:

I Don’t Believe In Sunday Church- Jesse Jagz

Music act and M.I’s younger brother, Jesse Jagz has said he does not believe in going to church. Explaining further on what he means, the singer said he believes a man has to build his relationship with God and not necessary go to church before he builds one. Jagz said despite growing up in the household of God (a church) he has not been to one in the past 8 years (and that’s the time he stated becoming popular). Hear him;

“I think every human is spiritual. Prayer is communication with God and there is no definite way of communicating with God. My dad was a pastor so we grew up in church. However, I have not gone to church in eight years. I believe education does not only exist within the four walls of a school the same way God does not only exist in a religious institution. He exists on his own. Growing up in church has made me realise the most important thing is to have a relationship with God. Human beings take religion too seriously.”

Months After Messy Fight With Abigail Igwe, John Fashanu Moves On… MEET His New Fiancée (Photos)

The tall good looking man is now with popular Hausa actress, Rachael Bakam, who also broke up with her husband not too long after their marriage was officially sealed. According to Rachael, she and Fashanu are so in love and staying apart for few minutes seems impossible for them. She said she understands he was badly treated in the marriage he just left, and she was also treated almost the same way in her own marriage, so they share one or two things together. Anyway long story short, hear what drunk in love Racheal told Saturday Beats after the cut. No be small thing, D'banj had them in mind when he sang, You Don Make Me Fall In Love.

South Africa's Tutu Discharged From Hospital After Treatment

South African anti-apartheid activist and veteran cleric, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, has been discharged from hospital where he received an intravenous course of antibiotics over the past two weeks. The 83-year-old had been admitted to hospital for the second time in August for treatment of an "inflammation".

Tutu has been receiving treatment for a recurring infection unrelated to the prostate cancer he has been fighting for 18 years, his family has previously said.

A Nobel peace laureate who used the pulpit to preach against apartheid, retired from public life in 2010 but has kept speaking out in a wide range of issues, including corruption among South Africa's political elite. Atleast South Africans can relax now that he isn’t going the Mandela way yet.

Graduates of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) would soon be allowed to participate in the National Youth Service Corps Scheme (NYSC) and the Nigerian Law School Programme. The Director, Ilorin Study Centre of NOUN, Mr Michael Abikoye, made this known on Thursday in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin.

He expressed optimism that with the ongoing talk between the management of the Open University and the relevant stakeholders, NOUN students would be absorbed into the scheme. So I think you need to pray if you are a NOUN student, lol. His actual statement after the cut.

FG Approves N400m To Minimize Hardship Of Students On Foreign Scholarships

The Federal Government has approved N400 million for the payment of upkeep allowances of Nigerian students on foreign scholarships. The Acting Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Education, Hajia HIndatu Abdullahi, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja yesterday.

Abdullahi attributed the delay to non-release of capital allowance and the change in government which delayed the release of capital allocation for 2015. According to her, the allowance payable to the scholars outside the country is from January to December and it is calculated and captured in the budget every year.

She said that the plight of the students was being taken seriously, adding that “we just have an approval of about N400 million, we are now working with the Federal Ministry of Finance to obtain it.

“After that, we will head to the Budget Office and the Central Bank of Nigeria to ensure that the money is remitted as soon as possible to the missions. In terms of the paper work, we have concluded; we want to pay something so that their hardship will be minimised, she said.

My Government Will Still Focus On Banishing Hunger, Rather Than Social Infrastructures- Fayose

Despite people’s opinions about the governor’s popular stomach infrastructure practice, the Governor who recently distributed items such as rice, milk, groundnut oil, beverages and maggi to the people of the State said he will do more rather than repair roads or focus on education for now.

The Governor according to a press statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, said only healthy people could contribute to the development of their societies.

“We are all witnessing what is going on across the world. People are moving to places they think has greener pasture even at the risk of their lives. People from Eastern Europe are struggling to get to the West. Here in Ekiti, our concern is the welfare of the citizens. When we banish hunger, assist in the provision of good health care services, then we can talk of roads and other social infrastructure. A hungry man may not value a road that is tarred because his major concern first will be to have food to eat. We are not allowing paucity of funds to deter us. When we started last year, mockers felt the programme would fizzle out or die, but it has not and will not. We have held it thrice in Ado-Ekiti and now Ikere-Ekiti and it will go round the state,” he said.

Do you agree that a government should feed its people first before building good roads or focusing on education? Your thoughts!
