"It is Preposterous for Anyone to Imagine that Buhari Would Describe Nigerians as Criminals" - Presidency Reacts to Brouhaha Over Telegraph Interview

The State House has described as misconstrued, the various interpretations of President Muhammadu Buhari's comments in an interview granted to the UK's Telegraph newspaper on February 5, 2016.

In a statement released in Abuja on Tuesday, February 9, Malam Garba Shehu (Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity) noted that the wave of negative reactions to the President's remarks about the reputation of Nigerians abroad was as a result of an incomplete understanding of President Buhari's point.

"President Buhari was asked about the flood of migrants from Nigeria and the fraudulent applications for asylum put in by people desperate to leave their motherland at any cost, and it was this question that elicited his response," he said, encouraging Nigerians to avail themselves of a full text of the interview, which has now been made available on the Telegraph's website.

‘Ndigbo Have Collectively Sold Their Birthrights to Those Who Have Hard Currency to Spray…’

The unbridled quest for money and the attitude of “only money counts” in all Igbo affairs, came under severe attack Tuesday, when the Catholic Bishop of Nsukka, Most Rev. Professor Godfrey Igwebuike Onah, delivered the 33rd Public Lecture of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, FUTO, titled “Intellectualism and the Development of a People”. 

According to the fiery Catholic cleric, the toll Igbo people have paid in values for this, has been enormous, adding that money and what money can buy seem to be all that matter to Ndigbo. 
“Even our proverbial egalitarianism and republicanism seem to have disappeared as the super rich became the owners of the community and their praise singers remind those who were in doubt that the community or town, indeed belonged to some people”, Professor Onah lamented. 

Val's Deeper meaning is Not About Singling Out Romantic Love as the Focus - Charly Boy

The legend of St Valentine is a tale of true love that transcends mere sentiment, it is certainly not about putting your lover on a looooong thing, or writing shopping list. Its noble purpose should inspire everyone in this new time of religious persecution, wahala all over the world to be equally vigilant and heroic in upholding and defending the traditional definition of marriage now under decay. 

Let St Valentine be our model and inspiration for life and humanity

Valentines Day is a great opportunity for us to broaden our understanding of love and its power. It is not about singling out romantic love as the focus. There is a deeper meaning.

Reps‬ Pledge Support for EFCC’s Anti-Corruption Crusade

The Chairman, House of Representatives’ Committee on Drugs, Narcotics and Financial Crimes, Kayode Oladele, has pledged the support of the members of the House to ensure that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), is adequately funded to enable it discharge its duties effectively.

He made the promise during the EFCC’s budget defence before the committee members on February 8, 2016.

“The funding of the EFCC remains a priority for the government and we are here to ensure that you are well-funded,” Mr. Oladele said.

Acknowledging the important role of the anti-graft agency in executing President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption war, Mr. Oladele assured the EFCC of an effective representation before the appropriation committee.

We’ll Probe Okonjo-Iweala, Diezani Soon, says EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission will soon begin the probe of the nation’s oil and gas industry as part of the current anti-corruption war of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
The roles of some principal officers in the former Goodluck Jonathan administration, including the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke; her counterpart in the Ministry of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala; and an oil magnate, will come under intense scrutiny.
The Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, said this in Abuja when he appeared before the House of Representatives Committee on Financial Crimes to defend the commission’s 2016 budget proposals.
In his presentation before the lawmakers on Monday, Magu tactically avoided giving direct answers to questions on whether Alison-Madueke would come under the searchlight of the agency.

2 Employees Set House of Chinese Boss Ablaze…After Stealing N450,000 in Edo State

THE greed of 30-year-old Frank Chukwuneye and Abdullahi Zakari, 25, was on steroids, when they conspired to steal N450,000 from their employer, Tom Wu, a Chinese businessman based in Benin city, capital of Edo State. The evil duo of Chukwuneye and Zakari were employed three months ago by Wu, to serve respectively as his interpreter and security guard.

While Chukwuneye was placed on a monthly salary of N70,000, the Chinese paid Zakari N30,000 per month. He did so regularly.

But demon of greed took hold of their minds and the seed of conspiracy was sown. During the yuletide period, on December 29, Wu withdrew N450,000 from the bank. Upon reaching home, he asked Chukwuneye to put it on the top of the drawer in his bedroom. Later he went out with Chukwuneye.

Nigerian artistes and Their Baby Mama Palaver: Tuface, Olamide, Davido, 9ice, Flavour and Their Out-of-Wedlock Families

They are young, handsome, rich and upwardly mobile. Little wonder they attract legions of adoring female fans. The baby mama syndrome is fast becoming the norm, as it seems some young musicians don’t see anything wrong in sowing wild oats. In fact, it has become the trend for young Nigerian artistes to father children out of wedlock, without any intention to get married to their baby mamas. From Tuface Idibia aka Tubaba who is regarded as ‘father of many nations’ to youngsters like Wizkid and Davido, the story is the same. This is the world of notable musicians with baby mamas.

While he has been a pioneer of sort in the music industry, Tuface Idibia is also a pioneer as far as baby mama palaver is concerned. In a career spanning two decades and still counting, Tuface has developed a legendary reputation for sowing wild oats, and to date, over a dozen women have claimed that he’s the father of their babies.  Tuface’s baby mamas include Sumbo Adeoye nee Ajaba, Pero Adeniyi and Annie Macaulay. Between them the women have seven kids for the musician.

2016 is just into its second month and a  lot has gone down in the entertainment industry, most of which were hilariously unfortunate. Here is another, but this time it’s a good one. Michael Stephens, otherwise known by his stage name, ‘Rugged Man’ has written an open letter to his erstwhile friend, Abolore ‘9ice’Adigun, over his belated apology with regards to the accusation leveled against him, six years ago, by ‘Alapomeji Records’ boss, 9ice. 

Rugged Man You will recall that six years ago, the ‘Gongo Aso’ crooner accused Ruggedman of sleeping with his wife ‘Toni Payne’, which eventually led to their separation. Six years after, though all parties involved have moved on, 9ice publicly apologized to Ruggedman and his wife over the unfortunate incident. Ruggedman, in his usual fashion, has responded to 9ice’s apology by writing a lengthy open letter to his now sober friend. Below is a copy of the letter. 

You Maybe a Really Good Person Deep Down Inside, But I Don't Carry Around a Shovel, Relating with You Should Not be Digging Deep - Ali Baba

I Read this 3 times. It is what comes out of you that We will relate with. When you say things we hear them. Because they were consequences of your thought now given life. When you send a text message, We take it that that is you talking. We are not going to start digging into how horrible you were feeling when you sent what you sent. 

The way you act or what you do, helps to shape our reactions. And if you have done that same thing several times before, then it becomes clear to us that that is you. Apologies don't count. YOU MAY BE A REALLY GOOD PERSON. But until you show it, We will keep relating with who you have shown to us. 

One book of wisdom said, out of the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks. If you want to go to KANO, and you are asking how much it is to get to Enugu and We react to your Enugu question, don't come back and tell anyone, you know I actually meant KANO. You didn't ask about KANO.
