'As An Igbo Man Trained In Business By The Hausa Fulani, I Sincerely Believe The Igbos Should Stay With Nigerian' - Orji Uzor Kalu Says As He Joins APC

As an Igbo man who have seen it all, trained in business by the Hausa Fulani and started business in the South West. I sincerely believe it is better for the Igbos to sit where other Nigerians are sitting. I recall that on complaining of how the bad roads in the South East has been a great source of worry to me and our people, President Muhammadu Buhari personally promised me that all the contractors in the South East will return to sites before the end of November. 

Today, contractors are fully back to the many abandoned Federal roads in Eastern Nigeria. These are part of the reasons for joining the party. I joined the APC because President Buhari has fulfilled the promise he made to me and we are hopeful he will do more.

I have approved the disbursement of 522 billion naira to the State Governments, to enable them pay salary and pension arrears, and put money in the economy. We have stipulated that at least 50% of the funds should be dedicated to salaries and pensions, and we will audit disbursements to ensure compliance. The Ministry of Finance is currently processing the first batch of 153 billion naira, which, I am told, will be released to 14 States.

The Ministry will provide more details on how the funds will be disbursed and how we will monitor the utilization to ensure that Nigerians receive the full benefits from their State Governors. As I said in my Independence Day Speech, I firmly believe that this recession will not last.

'I Wish All My Children Came From One Woman But I Have No Regrets Because God Ordained It' – 9ice

Popular singer, 9ice, is one of the few artistes in Nigeria whose love life has endured a lot of public scrutiny. In a chat with Saturday Beats, the singer who has four children from three women said that he wished he had all his children from one woman.

But then, he quickly added he has no regrets.

“I wish I had all my children from one woman because it is a good thing and it makes you connect easily with your children. For example, I have to go to Abuja, Lagos and America to visit my children. Imagine if all my children were from one woman. However, I have no regrets because it has been ordained, people are just complaining but God has already ordained that these things would happen,” he said.

And even as his love life has been trailed with so many controversies, the Gongo Aso crooner said he doesn’t mind the controversies as they actually fuel his creativity.

He said, “I think people would never understand me because it is not their life but mine. Everybody has the way they want to live their life and we all have factors and elements that work for us. I know the factors that work for me, I am living my life and I am enjoying it. I think it is for people to enjoy my songs and like it. As for my love life, it is mine, if I live my love life the way people want me to, I would be suffering while they would be enjoying. They should leave my love life for me because I think I deserve some happiness and an enjoyable love life. I have some factors and tactics that work for me and it is not in my position to explain it to people. Without the negative criticisms I receive when it comes to my love life, I would not be doing music again because what would I sing about. What would I put in my music? I love all the controversies surrounding my love life.”

9ice seized the opportunity to talk about his recently released album, ID Cabassa, and reiterated the fact that all proceeds from the album sales would go to his long-time producer, ID Cabassa.

He said, “This is my way of saying thank you to ID Cabassa for all he has done for me. Cabassa is not broke, nothing is wrong with him. I understand that in Nigeria, we only support people when they are down or dead. I am just doing my own; the idea has been there for a while and I felt it was the right time for me to make it a reality.”
