PDP Calls For Postponement Of Ondo Election Over Unsettlement In Party

Nigeria’s main opposition party, PDP, has called for the postponement of the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State.

The party based its call on the non-conclusion of a court case that was to determine its rightful candidate for the election.

A Court of Appeal panel led by Justice Ibrahim Salauwa on Friday adjourned ruling indefinitely in an appeal filed by Eyitayo Jegede who seeks to be recognised as the PDP governorship candidate.

Mr. Jegede seeks to upturn a Federal High Court ruling that effectively declared Jimoh Ibrahim as the rightful PDP candidate.

Couple Freeze To Death After Husband Slips On Ice And Wife Had Accident Going To Help

A devoted elderly couple were found dead outside their home in the Outer Hebrides this morning after temperatures plunged below zero last night.

Postmaster Donald and Maureen Macmillan, who were in their 70s, have been named locally as the tragic couple who were found dead behind bins at around 8am.

As police launch an investigation into the "unexplained" deaths, locals near the couple's home on the Isle of Lewis said they thought Mr Macmillan may have slipped on the ice as he went to pit the bins out.

They fear he was injured and his wife then went out to help but also suffered a tragic end outside their home, which also housed the remote and scattered area's post office.

Facebook Considering Ways To Combat Fake News After Trump Won

After more than a week of accusations that the spread of fake news on Facebook may have affected the outcome of the presidential election, Mark Zuckerberg published a detailed post Friday night describing ways the company was considering dealing with the problem.

Mr. Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chairman and chief executive, broadly outlined some of the options he said the company’s news feed team was looking into, including third-party verification services, better automated detection tools and simpler ways for users to flag suspicious content.

“The problems here are complex, both technically and philosophically,” Mr. Zuckerberg wrote. “We believe in giving people a voice, which means erring on the side of letting people share what they want whenever possible.”

Trump Goes On Twitter To Defend Why He Is Paying $25m In Trump University Lawsuit

Donald Trump has defended his decision to settle lawsuits over his Trump University real estate seminars for $25 million, saying he does not have time to fight the fraud cases in court now that he is headed to the White House. The US President tweeted;

"I settled the Trump University lawsuit for a small fraction of the potential award because as President I have to focus on our country."

"The ONLY bad thing about winning the Presidency is that I did not have the time to go through a long but winning trial on Trump U. Too bad!" He said in a second tweet.

In announcing the settlement, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said the deal followed repeated refusals by Trump "to settle for even modest amounts of compensation for the victims of his phony university."

Atlast! Trump Agrees To Pay $25m In Trump University Settlement

Donald J. Trump has reversed course and agreed on Friday to pay $25 million to settle a series of lawsuits stemming from his defunct for-profit education venture, Trump University, finally putting to rest fraud allegations by former students, which have dogged him for years and hampered his presidential campaign.

The settlement was announced by the New York attorney general just 10 days before one of the cases, a federal class-action lawsuit in San Diego, was set to be heard by a jury. The deal averts a potentially embarrassing and highly unusual predicament: a president-elect on trial, and possibly even taking the stand in his own defense, while scrambling to build his incoming administration.

It was a remarkable concession from a real estate mogul who derides legal settlements and has mocked fellow businessmen who agree to them.

While the suspects are expected to be charged to court, including the self-acclaimed solider, they however denied molesting or harassing anyone.

Chances Mariah Carey & James Packer Will Get Back Together DEAD

The "settlement" negotiations between Mariah Carey and ex-fiance James Packer have broken down, and there are now threats of lawsuits, with Mariah accusing James of being a "lying opportunist."

TMZ broke the story ... Mariah demanded $50 million from James, claiming he uprooted her life from New York and caused her emotional distress that caused her to cancel the South American leg of her world tour. TMZ James sources say the tour cancellations were due to poor ticket sales, not distress.

We're told James has now drawn the line ... he doesn't owe her squat. He says they were never married and there's no legal basis for him to pay her a penny.

I Wasn’t Delayed At The Airport Because Of My B33bs- Cossy Clears The Air

Lol, on Wednesday, Alibaba took to social media to say himself and Cossy were on the same flight last month to the USA and Cossy was detained for two hours. He said;

“So @cossyojiakor and I were on the same flight to the USA last month… I had crossed Immigration and even checked in and realised she had not called to say she had checked in… Called later and found out they held her back at the airport for two hours. Why? I asked her. She said they said something about “No dairy products allowed”… Still don’t get it.”

But Cossy while reacting through her spokesperson said, nothing of such happened and Alibaba was just joking.

“When she saw the post she laughed because she knew that Alibaba was only joking and she does not take things like that to heart. Most times when she reads things about herself in the media, she only laughs. The only time she took offence to a write-up was when she was accused of bestiality but that is in the past. She knows Alibaba was only joking and you can call Alibaba to confirm,” he said.

40 Die, 60 Wounded As Suicide Bomber Ram Into Wedding Venue Of Police Officer

At least 40 people have been killed and more than 60 wounded after a suicide car bomb attack targeted a police officer's wedding in Amiriyat al-Fallujah in Iraq, police sources have told Al Jazeera.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the explosion on Thursday, but police said they believed that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group was responsible for the attack.

Amiriyat al-Fallujah, 35km south of Fallujah, is home to pro-government Sunni tribal fighters, who fought ISIL for more than two years and repelled many attacks on their town before the armed group was pushed out of Fallujah in June.

ISIL, also known as ISIS, has been losing territory in Iraq over the past year. It is now facing a big battle to hold the northern city of Mosul, its last stronghold in the country.

'Poverty Killing Poverty’ Aremu Afolayan Fires Those Who Murdered ‘7-Year Old Boy’

I still wonder why people think that guy was 7. Already when things happen, please go on twitter and read from live witnesses. Go on twitter and hear people’s experiences from such in the past. One or two would have experienced it. Almost everyone is on the internet now, life is better. News, happenings comes out fast now. Please note that what they did is absolutely wrong, they would have just held him and hand him over to the police. Now handing him over to the police won’t change his life, hence people must insist he is sent to a corrective home, so his life can turn out better. Actor Aremu Afolayan has however waded into the matter (he got it wrong tho) that guy wasn’t 7 and placed a curse on those who carried out the act. He also cursed the Nigerian Government. But wait let me form posh small, did Aremu actually speak like that? Those Yoruba words are too strong, yepa! What What?? Bro you are razz jor, lol. What he wrote;
