Catholic Priests Begs Nigerians To Vote Out Jonathan In 2015

Popular Catholic Priest, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, who heads the Catholic Adoration Centre in Enugu, has begged Nigerians to vote out President Goodluck Jonathan in the forthcoming elections which will take place next month. The Catholic priest said the president was no longer fit to rule, and therefore urged his members to vote the All Progressives Congress candidate, Gen Muhammadu Buhari in place of the president.

The priest who made Goodluck Jonthan the topic for his New Year sermon titled the message  “From Good luck to Bad luck.” During his sermon he said, “I love President Goodluck Jonathan and I used to be his ardent fan, but I want good for my people and that’s why I want Nigerians to vote out Goodluck Jonathan and vote General Muhammad Buhari. I don’t care if Buhari is a Muslim and from the North; all I care about is that Buhari can save Nigeria,” he said.

Ironically the priest had also promised to pray for Jonathan before now, when the first lady visited him, but said the sign he got from God shows he was no longer fit to rule the nation.

Our Resolutions For Naija Celebs In 2015- Etcetera Writes

I think it is a must read, lol. Hopefully no celebrity will reply him openly.

Every January, resolutions are made with conviction, only to be dropped like a hot akara sometime before February as unattainable, or just plain boring. All through last year, we watched our celebrities and critiqued their behaviour. Maybe we shouldn’t have. Maybe we should let them make their own mistakes. Or maybe we should assess celebrity behaviour in 2014 and determine which celebrities could use some suggestions for their New Year’s Resolutions to make 2015 a great year. And that’s just what we’ve done. So Don Jazzy, Cossy, Omos*xy and others, listen up.

Early New Year Drama! Man Tweets About How He Was Sidelined From A London Trip

Oh dear who ever hurt Atom has done far too baddd. So apparently they have been working with this set of politicians and one of his colleagues have been in charge of 'settling' them with cash and giving them ‘mouth-watering gifts’ so long as they keep dancing to the politicians tunes. Now there’s a big card on the desk, they want to invite them to London and Atom’s name was excluded and all hell was let loose this morning on twitter, threatening he will open their ‘nyansh’, and yes that was the word he used, lol. It’s just so dramatic. You need to start reading his tweets from the last one upwards to understand why he is so bitter. Enjoy!

Update: Oh so what actually happened was that the drama was based on one @Oddy4real on twitter and Mr Atom was just being sarcastic, it wasn’t about him at all.  I found out from other tweets. Sorry Mr Atom.
