Somebody asked me to define recession. This is my definition: When you replace an Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala who has a PhD in regional economics and development from the Massachussets Institute of Technology as her highest educational qualification with Kemi Adeosun who has a a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from the University of East London as her highest educational qualification, the result you get is recession.

A Man Should Be Willing To Do Housework, There Is No Rule That Says My Wife Must Cook Or Do Other Things - Zack Orji
In a recent interview with Punch, Zack Orji said:
I did domestic chores and I still do. In fact, my son slept on my chest the day they returned from the hospital. For me, a man should be willing to do housework because it is his house.
I wash the dishes sometimes. It is not about showing love for one’s wife or one’s family. I just believe that since it is my house, it is something I should do. Also, when the children see such a thing, they will endeavour to emulate it. It will become a habit. Sometimes, whenever my children are reading, I will pack my plates myself to the kitchen after eating rather than disturb their reading.

Hilda Dokubo while ministering at a Lagos church recently explained how she lost her dad at 9 and how her life and that of her mother became miserable shortly after his death. She explained how she went through a lot and how she eventually got out of the situation. While using her life to minister she said;
“I was born with a silver spoon, but death turned me poverty-stricken after my father died when I was just 9. I turned away from God at that point, because I felt disappointed that despite how much my father loved and served God, he still died. After my dad died, my mother completely lost her mind. .
If she were living in the US, I’m sure she would have been diagnosed as a mental case. You know, in Nigeria, we don’t consider people mad until they have started eating from dustbins. I rebelled against God at that point, and I stopped going to church at the age of 9.
A mobile phone software marketer, who specialises in downloading applications on mobile sets, has been reportedly found dead in a hotel room in Ovwian, Udu Council area of Delta State after allegedly demanding sex from a female customer who could not pay for the service he rendered to her.

A Lot Of Women Forget To Be Sexy Wives And Assume 100% Role Of Mothers, Do You Agree? - Adejoro Olumofin Asks
A lot of women have forgotten to be sexy wives and assumed 100% role of mothers or business women neglecting their looks, shape, beauty and their duty to please their husband. These women who fall into this category have not visited the gym in about 2 years or don't even have a gym card or workout DVD, they pay no attention to their body shape and size, they're of the opinion that " ITS FOR BETTER FOR WORSE" I.e Dear Husband/ BF love me even if I'm as big as Yokozuna, they always forget the REALITY PRINCIPLE.
Some of these women stay home watch Africa Magic on weekends,eat Gala, chips, spend their whole day in the kitchen. When their husband comes home from work they're smelling of tomatoes, ata rodo, onions and kerosene. Their husbands already lose interest in them physically and sees them as a cook or sister.
Also, A lot of men have "seen their girlfriend or wives finish". "See Finish Syndrome"
A 23- year-old lady, Omolara Oluwagbemi, has been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for stabbing her fiance, Sodiq Dauda, to death. The incident happened on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 at 10, Onirugba Street, Ijebu Ode.

The suspect had told the police that her lover had sent her away from their apartment over the issue.
But she said on hearing about the case, Sodiq’s mother asked her to return to him, promising to come over to settle the disagreement between them.
Nnaji Juliet Ijeoma, 30, was arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos, today, during an inward screening of passengers. If she had succeeded in smuggling in the cocaine into Nigeria, she stood to reap the sum of N1m from her sponsors. During interrogation, Nnaji who hails from Enugu State, said:
“I work as a hair stylist in Brazil where l reside for the past two years. I studied mass communication, but because of lack of job, I work as a hair stylist in Brazil. I was approached to smuggle cocaine to Nigeria and I accepted because of the money involved.
Singer Oritsefemi is among so many Nigerian fathers who are over-protective of their daughters and he has no apologies for that. As much as many people thought he was joking on Instagram recently when he warned men to stay away from his daughter, the singer has told Saturday Beats that he meant every bit of the threat.
The Double Wahala singer said that he had to drop the warning because he realised that the value system in the world was fast changing and he would want his daughter to get to a certain stage in life before men being to woo her.
“I was very serious about warning men against my daughter. Every parent wants their kids to get to a certain level in life before they begin to think about relationship and mine is not different. That was why I posted the message on my Instagram page. I have already spoken to my daughter, so I decided to talk to the general public and plead with them to allow her grow older before they begin to chase her. It may sound like a joke but I was seriously passing a message across. It does not mean she would not have a boyfriend or get married someday,” he said.
Mavin’s first lady, Tiwa Savage, got so many mouths agape when she got an international deal so many of her colleagues only fantasise about. The singer recently signed an international deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation Records and some people began to insinuate that the deal might tear Mavin apart just as such deal allegedly tore apart Mo’hit Records which was then run by D’banj and Don Jazzy.
But then, the singer said she wasn’t going to let such apprehension affect the advancement of her career even as she claimed she wouldn’t know what caused the rift between D’banj and Don Jazzy.
“I really don’t think the international deal was what broke Mo’Hits. I would not like to think that and I don’t think any of us can really talk about that issue because it is only the two of them that really know what happened between them. For me, this is a blessing and I would not allow something that happened before to make me nervous. Maybe this is a way for us to get a second chance as Nigerian artistes and second chances rarely happen,” she said.

So they don’t make profit? Hmm, this is why nobody should be envious of another person, you never know how they make their money despite what they do as cover up. If the workers were the ones that imported it, NDLEA would have said the ‘workers’ and more so, it’s N2bn, not N2m or N200m. There is really a God. Cocaine has spoilt a lot of people’s lives, made many mad, turn around destinies, and one big man somewhere sneaked in a N2bn worth? Ha! Olorun mu yin! Please read…
The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, has confirmed that the substance found in a container imported by an Ikeja-based multinational roofing materials company (names withheld) is cocaine.
In an exclusive chat with Vanguard, the Head of Public Affairs of NDLEA, Mitchell Ofoyeju, said the drug was worth over N2 billion. He said that the substance weighed 214.732kg and that investigation had begun.
Deported Europe-Bound Migrants Tell Tales Of Woes As They Narrative Their Journeys Via Sahara Desert, Libya And The Perilous Mediterranean Sea
Deported migrants, hitherto Europe-bound, have recounted distressing narratives of their journeys via the Sahara Desert, Libya and the perilous Mediterranean Sea.
They are among the lucky ones who remain alive to tell their stories. This year alone, over 3,600 Europe bound migrants have died, even though thousands of others were able to enter Europe.
The survivors recounted their stories live on TV at the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), a Lagos based church on 16 October.
The church led by Pastor T.B. Joshua has found itself continuously coming to the aid of deportees, who, after making these regrettable journeys, visit the church in need of financial and psychological support.
Wife of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Patience, has urged a Federal High Court in Lagos to restrain a human rights organisation, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, from coercing the Attorney General of the Federation to prosecute her over “unfounded and malicious allegations that she stole $15m.”
Patience claimed that the $15m over which SERAP allegedly asked the AGF to prosecute her was a gift she received over the last 15 years from friends and well-wishers.
The Executive Director of SERAP, Adetokunbo Mumuni, said in a statement on Thursday that the organisation had been served with court papers in Patience’s suit marked, FHC/L/CS/1349/2016.
According to Mumuni, the suit was filed by members of the Union of Niger Delta Youth Organisation for Equity, Justice and Good Governance on behalf of themselves and Patience.
Why Do "Most" Married Women (Mostly Newlyweds) Cut Off Their Single Friends Who Stayed With Them, Gave Them Moral Support, Bought Their Aso Ebi? Adejoro Olumofin Asks
