We Will Assist Nigeria To Fight Boko Haram- Iran

Iran has announced today that it would assist Nigeria in the fight against the Islamist group, Boko Haram, as part of its contribution for global peace.

The country’s Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister, Amir Hossein Abdollohian, made the announcement while addressing the press on Saturday on the sideline of the ongoing 24th Assembly of the African Union (AU) Heads of State and Government in Addis Ababa.

“Boko Haram in Nigeria and Al-Shabaab in the Horn of Africa are similar with Al-Qaeda and ISIS in parts of the Middle East using similar methods of operations to cause havoc to the people of the two regions. Iran is therefore willing to use its experience in dealing with terror groups to assist in combatting these groups in Africa,“ Mr Amin said.

Why I’m Supporting Buhari & Why He Will Win- Dele Momodu

Dele Momodu in an interview published by Premium Times today has revealed why he is supporting APC's Muhammadu Buhari and why he thinks the General will win the forthcoming elections.

As a former presidential candidate, why did you decide to support Mr. Buhari for presidency in the coming elections?

Well, the mood of the nation favours a change in our state of affairs. The average Nigerian, except maybe those who are profiting from the government, believes that government has not performed. So I have looked at the political situation, based on my vast experience working with late Chief M.K.O Abiola, working with Chief Olu Falae, and working for myself and I can see that the only way to dislodge the PDP is if we all join forces. I’m not a member of the APC, I’m a member of the National Conscience Party and I never thought a day would come when I won’t support my own presidential candidate. But the reality on ground is that we have to face the reality. Continue below...

Photos How Touts, Miscreants Destroy People’s Properties During Political Rallies

Now this is not the first time I will receive such a mail, so it’s not just about APC rallies alone, it happens during PDP rallies too, even other parties that are not as popular as APC and PDP. According to a reader, his brother was so unfortunate yesterday afternoon while driving through Teslim stadium surulere, during the APC presidential rally at the stadium. The traffic was much and miscreants took advantage of that and started robbing passengers in exotic cars.  They robbed hi m and his driver and almost stabbed them in the process. Below is what he sent in. Btw, I didn’t use the previous mails because they didn’t back them up with photos.

Buhari’s Supporters Are Desperate & Unrealistic - Etcetera

Well that’s what Etcetera is telling you today.

Stupid is a word that has a broad range of applications, but it generally means a person lacks rudimentary intelligence or the ability to reason. It can also imply a congenital lack of capacity for reasoning, or a permanent state of daze or slow-mindedness. However one defines or applies the word stupid, you can hardly think of the word without directly relating it to the utterances of some Buhari’s supporters; especially the supposedly literate ones.

Over the past week, it became apparent that the level of stupidity inherent in those inclined to support certain politicians at all cost is beyond comprehension. In fact, it is frightening that so many Nigerians of voting age lack the fundamental reasoning ability of a second-grader and are even less-informed about basic facts than a kindergarten.

What Really Makes Single Girls Date Married Men In Nigeria?

Some ladies date married men because of money; some date married men because they claim they love them, while some date them because single guys don’t look their ways or not ready to settle down. What is your own reason of dating a married man? A friend’s friend met me earlier today and felt comfortable telling us how she is in a relationship with a married man. She even argued with me and said 70 percent of single ladies in Nigeria are dating married men. How true is this readers. Mi o ma gbo e le yi ri ke (haven’t heard of this before).

Fashola Challenges Agbaje, Publish Your LUC Receipts

“It is not that I hate him (Agbaje). But this is not a personal issue. This is an issue that concerns the development of Lagos State. I am saying this without mincing words. His pharmacy has not paid land Use Charge for year 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012; it amounts to N1, 629, 064.62.”

“I didn’t say you did not pay two years Land Use Charge, LUC you did. But you have four years unpaid LUC. If you have paid all your LUC, please publish your receipt,” Fashola said.
