Lagos, Ondo, Ogun, Declare June 12 Public Holiday

The governments of the South-west states have declared June 12 as a public holiday to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the annulled 1993 Presidential election adjudged to have been won by the late M.K.O Abiola.

The states include Lagos, Ondo, Ogun, Osun, Ekiti, and Oyo states.

The federal government on Wednesday announced that June 12 would become a national holiday for the celebration of democracy day starting from 2019, although the day had always been public holidays in the South west.

In Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, the governor, said the recent decision of President Muhammadu Buhari to declare June 12 as the new democracy day would ensure that Mr Abiola and other martyrs of democracy who laid down their lives in the struggle to entrench good governance did not do so in vain.

FG Hits Back At Obasanjo, No Plan To Frame You Up

The federal government last night dismissed as frivolous allegation by ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo that government had placed him on a watch list preparatory to terminating his life.

Gambit Blasts Nigerians Criticizing Half Naked Girls In Music Videos, Says They Watch Them At Night

Music video director Paul Gambit has said that using scantily dressed ladies in music videos is due to their appeal on the audience. This is coming as many Nigerians complain of the common use of semi-nude ladies in music videos shown on television.

According to Gambit who has directed videos for Yemi Alade, Dija, Cobhams and others, the use of ‘half-naked’ girls ‘depends on the songs’ and it is not in every kind of video.

 “If you look at our foreign counterparts, it’s the same thing,” Gambit said.

“It’s even worse. At the end of the day, it’s about the numbers. If you look at conscious music, for example, you don’t get as much hits on YouTube as much as you get for others. Even on Instagram, if a girl is covering her head and everything, check her likes, maybe like 50 or 20.

Honour Kudirat Abiola Too, APC Tells Buhari

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to consider honouring late Kudirat Abiola, wife of late Chief MKO Abiola, with a posthumous award.

The party made the call in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abudullahi, in Abuja yesterday while commending Buhari for honouring Abiola with a posthumous Grand Commander of the Federal Republic (GCFR).

The late Abiola was the acclaimed winner of June 12, 1993 presidential election, which was annulled by then military Head of State, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida. The election, which Abiola contested on the platform of Social Democratic Party (SDP), was said to be Nigeria’s freest and fairest.

The APC said it believed that Kudirat, who was assassinated in Lagos on June 4, 1996, paid the supreme price in struggle for the actualisation of the June 12, 1993 presidential mandate and as such deserved to be honoured in her own right as a heroine and martyr of democracy in Nigeria.

Why I Won't Marry A Nigerian Lady, Dubai Afrika Boss, Tolu Adesanmi Speaks

While chatting with Saturday Beats, the entrepreneur said that he is on the verge of travelling to some African countries in search of a wife as he is not impressed with Nigerian girls.

“The viral post is actually still recent. I posted a picture of myself alone at home with a caption that I am single on my personal Instagram page and a blogger picked it up. Before I knew what was happening, it had gone viral.

Anyone that is in your life and tells you things the way they are, it is easy to love that person. It is when you are afraid of criticism that you cannot make friends with Timaya because when I go wrong, I ask him if I made the right move and he tells me the truth that I did not act right and that I messed up. 

When I am getting things right and people are criticizing me, he tells me that I am doing the right thing. If you look through his history, he is the most consistent artiste of all time.
