Buhari To Gov. Shettima You Are Too Corrupt By Embezzling N600 Billion

Buhari To Gov. Shettima You Are Too Corrupt By Embezzling N600 Billion

Governor Kashim Shettima

Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State has incurred the wrath of President Mohammadu Buhari and may have been shut out from the Presidential Villa for allegedly squandering over N600Billion meant for Local Governments in the State and Internally Displaced Persons, IDP’s, Pointblanknews.com has learnt.

Sources told Pointblanknews.com that Gov. Shettima failed woefully to convince President Buhari on his expenditures of Federal Allocation of about N200Billion and N400Billion collected for 27 Local Governments in Borno State.

Gov. Shettima had approached the President for a bailout for the embattled state.

The Borno state government had revealed that terrorist group, Boko Haram controls 20 out of the 27 local government area in Borno state over the last five years. Only Maiduguri Metropolitan, Jere, Konduga, Kaga, Bayo,
Kwayakusar and Biu local government areas remain in government hands.

But the Government of Shettima has repeatedly collected funds for all the Local Governments including those under the control of Boko Haram.

The President is particularly miffed over Governor Shettima’s inability to account for over N600Billion he has so far collected as either Federal Allocations, funds meant for Local Government Areas of the state and donations from corporate organizations and individuals for Boko Haram
victims, sources within the state and the Presidency told
Pointblanknews.com.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, are currently looking at the accounting records of the state with the view to determining all those linked with the embezzlement of resources meant for the Boko Haram
troubled State.

Said one source “ The President has refused to see the Governor because he cannot account for the over N400 Billion he received on behalf of the 22 local councils sacked by Boko haram, and the over N200 Billion he received
for Borno state.”

According to the source, Buhari has an axe to grind with Shettima in the areas of funds that accrued to the state and councils sacked by Boko Haram, and how the Governor allegedly embezzled, diverted and misappropriated large chunk of state funds.

Pointblanknews.com learnt that Buhari refused to approve Shettima’s request for bail out because he could not tell him what happened to the funds meant for the sacked councils, and what he has done with the over N200 Billion received for the state from Federal allocation.

Our source said “when he requested the President asked him, how many local councils are active, he said two and that most inhabitants of the other 25 were in IDP camps, the President then asked him what about the over N400 Billion meant for the councils he said it was intact. But it was a lie. He told the President he was spending N650 million on those in the IDP’s but in reality, Shettima’s government was spending a paltry N40 million a month on the displaced people. ”

It was gathered that even though he has immunity the EFCC has commenced a full scale probe into how Shettima, who frittered over N64 Billion left in the state’s coffers by his predecessor, Ali Modu Sherrif, expended the N600 Billion that accrued to the state and 27 local councils. No of evidence of any projects in the 27 local councils.


Only recently, Pointblanknews.com exclusively reported how Gov. Shettima connived with the Managing Director of the Borno State Micro Finance,Hajia Zainab Kolo to steal N2.1billion from the Bank. Zainab in a chat with Pointblanknews.com said she only followed orders from the Governor on the N2.1billion scandal.

Pointblanknews.com gathered that Kolo is already being quizzed by the EFCC over the diversion.

According to sources, Kolo, on the instruction of the Governor put together a bogus list of beneficiaries who got between N50,000 and N500,000, but in reality, the jobless youths got N10,000 each without collateral nor guarantors.

Shettima who frettered away N65 Billion left in the coffers of the state
by his predecessor Alli Modu-Sherriff, became desperate.

Pointblanknews.com also gathered that Shettima and Kolo pulled a fast one on the state on this issue of N2 Billion from CBN. Shortly after the loan came from CBN, the governor allegedly stashed N1Billion in a third generation bank, and directed Kolo to disbursed N10,000 to few youths.

Later another N2 Billion came from Business mogul Aliko Dangote as part his empowerment drive in the state. Kashim and Kolo allegedly diverted the Dangote cash as well.

In a telephone chat with Pointblanknews.com, embattled Kolo said she did nothing wrong, and that as an employee of the state she barely followed orders.

Woman Caught After Snatching a Baby 17-years Ago Weeps and Begs in Court

Woman Caught After Snatching a Baby 17-years Ago Weeps and Begs in Court

A woman who was caught after nearly 18-years since she stole a baby from the hospital has wept profusely in court over the incident that brought her national embarrassment.

A woman accused of kidnapping a newborn baby and raising her as her own child for 17 years wept in a South African court Monday as she described her arrest. It was the first time the 50-year-old woman, who has pleaded not guilty, had shown emotion in the week-long trial in the Western Cape High Court. She was arrested on February 26 last year after DNA tests had shown that she was not the baby’s biological mother, and she was barred from seeing the girl again.

“That was the last time I saw her,” she said, before her face crumpled and she sobbed.

Outside the court, the kidnapped girl’s biological father, Morne Nurse, told reporters: “The emotion she is feeling now, we’ve been feeling for 18 years.”

The accused woman cannot be named to protect the identity of the kidnapped girl, who requested protection from the international media over the sensational case.

Last week, the girl’s mother, Celeste Nurse, 36, told how she woke up in the maternity ward to find her three-day-old baby had vanished from the cot by her side on March 30 1997.

The Nurse family was reunited with their daughter — whom they had named Zephany — in February last year after an astonishing coincidence.

When a younger daughter of the Nurses began attending high school, pupils pointed out her remarkable likeness to a final year student.

The younger girl told her parents, who met the older girl and immediately believed she was their long-lost baby. They called the police, and DNA tests confirmed that the girl was indeed Zephany. Local reports suggest that the trauma of the case led the girl to drop out of her final year of school and that the 18-year-old is now living with her boyfriend.

Morne Nurse told AFP outside the court that her biological parents had “a bit of contact still” with Zephany, but would not comment further.

The accused kidnapper told the court that after a miscarriage in December 1996 she paid a woman who promised to find her a child to adopt. In early April 1997 she was handed a baby wrapped in a blanket at a train station in Cape Town, she said.

She had not told her husband of her miscarriage, so presented the baby to him as their own child, she said. She was not cross-examined on her evidence as the prosecutor was unavailable, and the case was postponed by Judge John Hlophe until next Monday. She faces a minimum of five years in jail if convicted of kidnapping.

Wow! Meet the Newborn Born Baby That is Actually 12 Years Old (Photo)

Wow! Meet the Newborn Born Baby That is Actually 12 Years Old (Photo)

The little baby is the country's longest preserved test tube baby

A new born baby has been hailed to be symbolic and historic after he was fertilized more than 12 years ago after surviving a frozen embryo.

China is celebrating the birth of the country’s longest preserved test tube baby, who was fertilised more than 12 years ago.

He was born on Wednesday in Tangdu Hospital, Shaanxi Province after surviving as a frozen embryo for more than a decade.

It’s not a sinister experiment, but a success story that could give hope to women across the country struggling with fertility problems.

China Daily reported a 40-year-old woman who suffered from polycystic ovary syndrome as well as blocked fallopian tubes had her embryos frozen when she first started trying to get pregnant through IVF in 2003.

Thirteen years later, after the relaxation of the country’s one child policy, she gave birth to her second son (pictured) weighing 7lb 6oz.
When she first began fertility treatment, doctors harvested 12 of her eggs which they fertilised with her husband’s sperm.

The baby is hailed as historic

They implanted two of them straightaway, and nine months later she gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

Then they froze the rest which were judged to be viable and the woman paid to store them at a hospital in case she was able to have another child later on.

Out of seven frozen embryos, three survived being thawed – and one of those was the healthy baby boy born this week.

Had Jonathan Won, Nigeria Would’ve Seized To Exist – Evangelist Olomilua

Had Jonathan Won, Nigeria Would’ve Seized To Exist – Evangelist Olomilua

A former Governor of Ondo State, now a clergyman and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Evangelist Bamidele Olomilua has opined that had the Peoples Democratic Party-led government by former President Goodluck Jonathan won 2015 Presidential Election, Nigeria would have seized to exist.

Olomilua in a recent interview with Vanguard Newspaper said the decision of Nigerian electorates to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari saved the nation from extinction.

Read excerpt from the interview bellow:

Do you approve of President Buhari’s method in reining in Niger Delta militants, as against the pacifist method of former President Jonathan?

Self-discipline is what can take a man to where he wants to go. Self-denial and self-discipline are very important in the life of individuals, and a nation should have discipline, we can’t continue like this.

If PDP had continued for another five years to 10 years, we would have been in trouble, there may have been no country anymore. So there comes a time when people must stand up and say, who are mine, where am I and how far am I going?

Buhari is a man who is well known for his disciplinarian pattern of life and he wants to apply it to governance. He has the boldness and self-discipline to say let us discipline this nation. So, must we be so afraid of those who break pipes, so that there can be stability? Do you bring stability by breaking all those things that the nation spent so much money on? I don’t think so. Discipline is necessary in the life everybody.

Chief Awolowo said two things affected his life, the grace of God and self-discipline, if you don’t discipline yourself and your government, you would be afraid. Look at the way we bring our children up, some children are pampered, they can’t face life or their own reality.


It is better we face the situation squarely and it will reach a point where people would accept the fact that some people are in charge. I think that even the bible, says spare the rod and spoil the child, we need discipline. We are only praying that God should spare and keep the life of Buhari so that these saboteurs who feel so important that they can defile the laws and do what they like.

ARASE CRYS OUT!!!!! Emir Above The Law: I Can’t Free Ese Without Emir’s Help – Police IG Arase

ARASE CRYS OUT!!!!! Emir Above The Law: I Can’t Free Ese Without Emir’s Help – Police IG Arase

Solomon Arase

The Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, has said the Emir of Kano’s  Hajj trip is responsible for the delay in securing the release of 14-year-old Ese Oruru, who is being held captive in Kano State.

Arase said this on Sunday after the launch of a “Free Ese” Campaign by PUNCH, which drew the attention of thousands of Nigerians to the plight of the Orurus,  causing outrage over the shocking story.

“I have just spoken with the Sunday PUNCH’s Editor. I explained to her about the delay. The police command in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, actually followed up the matter right from Kano State, ” Arase told The PUNCH.

“The Emir decided that he was going to mediate. But, because of his trip to Mecca with the President; that was what caused the delay. But now that he is back, we are going to sort it out as quickly as possible.”

ARASE CRYS OUT!!!!! Emir Above The Law: I Can’t Free Ese Without Emir’s Help – Police IG Arase

Sanusi, Ese, Arase

Ese had been abducted in August 2015 by one Yinusa, who was a longstanding customer of her mother, Mrs. Rose Oruru, a food vendor in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.

Yinusa subsequently took Ese,  who was 13 years old at the time, to Kano where she was allegedly converted to Islam and forcefully married.

Since August 12 when her parents made the shocking discovery, trips to Kano, the involvement of the police and efforts to get the Emir of Kano, Mallam Lamido Sanusi, at whose palace the girl is believed to be held to resolve the matter and ensure the return of the 14-year-old to her parents have been resisted by those responsible for the abduction.

While her mother was told that Ese had converted to Islam and, therefore, was no longer her daughter, her father was told that his daughter was an 18-year-old adult and not 14, hence she was capable of making decisions for herself.

The fact that the teenager’s parents had reported at the Ekeki Police Station, Yenagoa, and to the Kwani Police Station, Kano, and sought the IGP’s intervention since last year without success angered many Nigerians.

The parents  had said all efforts to secure the release of their daughter from the palace had proved abortive.

Arase,  however,  explained that the police authorities did not abandon the matter as was being insinuated, adding that the release of the girl would be “sorted out as quickly as possible.”

When asked how soon Nigerians could expect the release of Ese, the IG noted that it was dependent on the intervention of the emir.

He said, “Well, that is dependent on the intervention of the emir. We have agreed to resolve the matter. I cannot give a timeline.”

When our correspondent asked again, “Sir, you mean the release is dependent on the emir, and not the police?”

Arase said, “I have not said anything like that. Have I? I have told you I have discussed these things with the editor. You can ask her. You are starting a different line of interview?

“But what I am telling you is that we did not abandon the matter as being insinuated. We have been following it up. The issue will be resolved.”

Fayose is Nothing But A Tout – Soyinka

Fayose is Nothing But A Tout – Soyinka

Prof. Wole Soyinka

Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, Wednesday night went personal against the Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, calling him a ‘tout’.

Soyinka was reacting to what he described as Fayose’s attack on judges shortly before his swearing-in as the governor of the state.

He also called on ‎ President Muhammadu Buhari to stop impunity in the country especially by the nation’s security operatives.

The Nobel Laureate was the keynote speaker, Wednesday, at the ‎10th anniversary of the annual Wole Soyinka Award for Investigative Reporting by the Wole Soyinka Centre for Investigative Journalism.

According to Soyinka, the Nigeria Military in particular is in the habit of assaulting ‎and harassing members of the public. He said that the spate of the assault does not depict the country as a democratic country.

Soyinka insisted that the report of the enquiry into the recent attack on the BRT buses by soldiers in Lagos must be made public, saying the claim by the authorities that the matter had been dealt with militarily was not tenable.

He also called on government to ensure that the nation’s laws are respected, including the order of the courts. He challenged security operatives not to take laws into their own hands.

He said: “There must be an end to unlawful detention. If the court has granted someone a bail, it must be honoured, I don’t care what the offence is.

“Anybody or institution that does this can only be compared to that tout in Ekiti. That Fayose, he is a tout. He descended on the judges and attacked them openly without any consequence.”

Under no circumstances should a person of her capacity be subjected to conform to the cultural/religious practice of the host country.

Kemi Adeosun is a Nigerian Minister visiting Qatar,she is a foreigner,therefore she is not bound by Qatari laws or culture which can’t be enforced on her.

It is utmost disrespect for her person and Nigeria as a nation to see her subjected to covering her hair to please Qatari officials.This attempt of cowardice to Qatari Islamic custom denigrates the office of the Minister of Finance and totally against Global Practice.


Madam Kemi Adeosun, next time you find yourself in an Arab nation,refuse vehemently to cover your hair,their laws are not binding on you.You are their visitor and your person must be respected.

Congratulating Okezie Ikpeazu is Endorsing Criminality’ – Alex Otti

Congratulating Okezie Ikpeazu is Endorsing Criminality’ – Alex Otti

Alex Otti

The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance in Abia State, Alex Otti has declared that he will not congratulate the Peoples Democratic Party and the governor of the state, Ikezie Ikpeazu on his Supreme Court victory.

Otti, who spoke at a thanksgiving organised by his party’s state chapter noted that despite the flaws in the judgement of the Supreme Court, he had accepted the verdict and wants the governor to succeed for the general interest of the state.

He said: “To Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, let me state unequivocally that we have nothing against him as a person but the system that imposed him against all democratic norms and practices, which attached more value to his ambition than to the lives of innocent Abians.”


To buttress his point, Otti gave the governor a sneak peak of what it would take for him to succeed.

“But for the governor to succeed, he must not only repent but also purge himself of those primitive and primordial practices that have continued to present the state as theatre of absurdities.”

“He must stop the payment of monthly stipends to some lazy and jobless persons masquerading as godfathers, leaders and stakeholders. We believe that such act is evil and should not continue in the state.”

He then addressed the agents of the PDP who have harangued him for not putting up a show of good sportsmanship and congratulating Ikpeazu on his victory.


He declared that he would not congratulate the governor on the premise that his victory is undeserved.

“While we have accepted the unpopular judgment that injures the sensibilities of Abians, we cannot congratulate you as that would amount to endorsement of criminality.”

“So, rather than arrogantly demanding for unjust and undeserved congratulatory message from me and my party, the PDP should rather express remorse, seek repentance, and be humble enough to seek for forgiveness from God and Abians.”

Otti further implored his supporters who are disappointed by the turn events to hold their peace and tread softly.

Nigerian Doctor Makes Shocking Revelation, Says Ijebus and Igbos are Jews from Israel

Nigerian Doctor Makes Shocking Revelation, Says Ijebus and Igbos are Jews from Israel

A doctor in the department of Local Government Studies from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Dr. Fatai Ayisa Olasupo has made a shocking discovery claiming that Ijebus and Igbos originated from Isreal.


Dr. Fatai Ayisa Olasupo, a senior lecturer at the Department of Local Government Studies, Faculty of Administration, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife in Osun State, wrote a book which claims that Ijebus and the Igbos are Jews from Isreal. Olasupo explained how he arrived at such finding through rigorous research.

According to the Guardian, the book entitled "Black African Jews" has been translated into six international languages. The man, who revealed that he was inspired to undertake an extensive research on Awujale of Ijebu Ode and the Igbo speaking people who, at different times, claimed to have migrated from Israel.

‘‘In 2006, Awujale was marking his 70th birthday and he granted an interview to The News Magazine, in which he said that the Ijebu are Jews, and that it is not only the Ijebu who are Jews, but that we have some Ijebu-Ibo that are Jews. We have Itsekiri people who are Jews. There are some people in Benue too who are Jews; even, among the Kanuri.

‘‘Since then (2006), I have started gathering data on what he said, and I have quoted him verbatim on some occasions. Most of the data I gathered were Internet-based.

‘‘In 2012, to be precise, I decided to write the story about the fact that the Ijebu are Jews and very importantly also that, Queen Sheba has her burial site in Oke-Eri in Ijebu. So, I decided to write a paper on it. The first paper I wrote was entitled: 'The role of Arabia and Western Civilisation in the Extinction of African Traditional Religion: South Africa, Senegal and Nigeria as a case study.' I got it published in a Canadian journal: OIDA International Journal of Sustainable Development.

“Another material about Bilikisu Sungbo that I got which I scanned is also in the journal. I got it from The Nation. You can see the title: ‘Black African Jews, the Nigerian Question and the lost Ten Tribes of Israel: A comparison of Igbo and Yoruba claims to Jewish and Judaic Traditions.’

‘‘You will recall that during the Civil War, the Igbo were claiming that they were Jews. There are enough materials about this on the net. In all the claims people have been making, I now have a prominent person and foremost traditional ruler in the person of the Awujale of Ijebuland claiming that they are from the Jews. And the entire Yoruba nation believes we are from Mecca through Egypt, down. But Awujale is insisting that the Ijebu are from the Jews. I got everything documented along with my other findings.

“After about a year, I just got a mail from a Jewish lady or woman called Elena Djima. It was entitled: ‘Publishing a book for the international audience and beyond’. She was seeking permission from me to allow them publish the material in a form of a book. Initially, I did not give it recognition, but later I gave it a second thought. Then I decided to respond.

“I didn’t solicit Elena’s permission in the first place. She just promised that if the book is published, the Jews, anywhere they may be in the world, would read it. She said the best selling bookshops all over the world would get this book. To quote her, she said, ‘This is an outstanding book, and all world leaders would read about it.’ And in fact, it is true. The book is entitled: Black African Jews written by me. If you google it, it will take you to the net and you will see the number of countries that have adopted it. It has been translated into French, Denmark, German, Swedish and virtually all the European countries, apart from English Language. Since August last year, it has been there.

‘‘A British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) report on the net also has ‘Awujale linked with Sheba?’ Part of my argument is that if the burial site was not that of Ooni not that of Alaafin, then whose is it? If a paramount ruler in Ijebu could say that, of what benefit would it be for anyone to deny his culture or lie about it? When Alaafin gave me the ‘History of Yoruba’ written by Samuel Johnson, I saw that there was, at a certain time, a female Alaafin. There was also a female Ooni in history.

“Regarding the Oke-Eri issue, there was a rampart that covers about 160 kilometres in Ijebu area, very close to Ibadan here and it extended to Benin. It must be a prominent king that must have built that kind of rampart or rather, protective wall at that time. A history from my research also showed that this woman, Queen Sheba, came to Oke-Eri. That she was very light in complexion, and that when she came, she arrived with a retinue of about 200 people. This is talking of about five centuries ago. This retinue of people or slaves that followed her to that place must have inter-married. You know the period of King Solomon, more than five thousand years ago.

“I just compared the claims of the Igbo to being Jews to that of Yoruba. Even in Egypt, there are a sizeable number of Jews there. In Israel, there are Arabs there. In Iran which is an Islamic Republic, there are Jews there. When there was holy war in Mecca that led to the massive movement of people from that area, it is not possible that only Arabs would be the ones to be moving away. The holy war was mainly targeted at the Jews, who also must be moving away with the Arabs at the same time. If Yoruba are claiming that Lamurudu came from Mecca‎, some of the Jews also would have moved with them to the West African side. So, if the Ijebu, as represented by such a prominent personality like the Awujale, are saying that they have a descent from the Jews, who will discountenance that? And nobody among the Ijebu has ever controverted what the Awujale said, unlike the Igbo who have contradicted one another on their own claim.”

Revealing further, Olasupo said: “Awujale was categorical that some Igbo found among the Itsekiri and other regions left from Ijebu. And you know that the Awujale said this when the late Ooni was alive, so also other paramount monarchs,‎ yet nobody doubted or controverted him. There has also been sufficient evidence to prove this. An Australian came to Oke Eri to conduct the interview; BBC also conducted the interview with people around there. And to crown it all, there is no any country in the world today that has laid claim to where Queen Sheba was buried, apart from the claim by Awujale of Ijebuland. So, if any other country has another burial site of Sheba, it should bring it for the world to see. It is true that she was born in Ethiopia, but in Ethiopia, they did not know where she was buried.”

He further revealed that his book is "going to bring enormous economic benefits in the area of tourism. This Queen has her story narrated in the Quoran, in the Bible. So, Oke Eri is going to be a kind of Mecca or Jerusalem. It could become a United Nations Heritage site like the Osun of Osogbo.

The Christians would be going there; the Muslims would be going there; the Jews would be going there because she combined all the three religions. Once the UN approves it as an heritage site, the whole world will be coming there for tourism.”

He assures that his book has made findings with claims that can be authentically backed. He hopes to share his new knowledge with the world.

Veteran actor, Jab Adu is dead

Veteran actor, Jab Adu is dead

Joseph Adu

One of the few surviving actors in popular old TV drama, The Village Headmaster, Joseph Adu, popularly known as Jab Adu, is dead.

The veteran actor passed on in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Sunday.

He was 83.

A source close to his family confirmed the passage  though he could not yet provide details of it.

Trained as a professional banker before settling as an actor, late Jab Adu had an illustrious career on stage, television and film.

He started his adult life as a  banker with the Central Bank of Nigeria.

While with the apex bank, he squeezed out time to participate as an actor and writer in the popular Village Headmaster, in which he played the role of Bassey Okon, the doctor, dispenser and pharmacist of Oja village.

The deceased was born in Calabar, Cross River State. Thus, it was  easy for him to play the role of an Efik speaking character in the junction town of Oja.

He left banking in 1970 and went into full time acting, writing and production.

Excerpts from Nollywood actress Eucharia Anunobi’s recent chat with The Entertainer.

How Did You Become An Entertainer?

“I went for an audition and got a role from Christian Michaels in a flick that was not eventually produced; but I met Kanayo O. Kanayo on the set and he felt impressed with my potentials.

“I want to say that I am one of the most wonderful human beings that God created. I say this because I have been told and I know too, that I have a lot of wisdom, a lot of intellect and have ability to have empathy for other human beings.

I am a very humane person, I love to love, I love to forgive, I love to feel for people.” “Again I would say, to top it all, I am a born again Christian.

My Journey Into The Deeper Knowledge Of God

The day I found Christ, I found joy unlimited; from that time I was telling God, how come I wasn’t a born again Christian all along. “I have been born-again for almost a decade now.

Nobody converted me; I woke up and decided that I should pay more attention to God. I realised then that I couldn’t have got to the stage I was without the Almighty God. So I decided I should concentrate on giving God more glory and dedicating my life to him.

“At that time, I knew that the fame that came with my movies and the jobs I did was on the high side at least by the Nigerian standard. So if I hadn’t become born-again, I probably would have been in the world. I worship with the Redeemed Christian Church of God at Ikeja,” Eucharia added.

Today you are an Associate Pastor in Fresh Oil Ministry in Egbeda, Lagos. When did you decide to take to preaching?

“You don’t take a decision to preach. When you are called and ordained into an office that gives you the opportunity to preach, you just go ahead.

I was ordained on February 5, 2012. A Christian is expected to do the work of God by loving their neighbours as themselves and preaching is just one aspect of such a lifestyle. Helping the needy around you to meet their needs is already ministry.

“I would never want to be remembered as someone who graced all the front pages of all the newspapers and news magazines in the world and did not contribute to the leading of people towards heaven.

Of a truth, you will agree with me that the job that will be rewarded by God Himself is that of soulwinning. “So, why waste my fame, money, life, face, time, speaking ability to do the things that will never be rewarded?

I would never wish to be remembered as one lady who covered or graced all the front-pages or a fashion star, or a fashion icon, or one with the best gown at the red carpet event, designed and clothed by the best hands in the world, with the best hair-style or make-up.

“Surely, these things are good and beautiful, but they will never earn anyone a single mark before the presence of God. The content of my character and my contributions to humanity through the preaching of God’s Word (for which I was originally created for) are what I wish to speak for me when my accounts and records are opened in heaven.

Akinwunmi Ambode

Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, yesterday attended the Golden Jubilee grand reunion of FGC, Warri, his alma mater. Check him out happily dressed in his school uniform with students.

At the event, Ambode said all the knowledge and discipline impacted in him during his secondary school days in the college contributed largely to who he is today, just as he urged his old school mates to come together and ensure the vision of the school was kept alive.

The governor said:

 “Indeed, my becoming a governor can be attributed to what I gained and learnt from this school. We must come together, all of us to ensure that the vision of the establishment of the school must not die.

So it is a great honour to all of us to return here after decades and celebrate this 50th anniversary. We are benefiting from the vision planted years ago.

I want to assure the principal that we are going to bring back the good old days of this school. I wish all the students well and pray that you all be better and more successful than all of us here today.

I like to say a big welcome to seniors and juniors. One great thing about this school is that no matter what you become in life your senior remains your senior.”

Nigerian Military officer pummels female sickler doctor and breaks her skull

Nigerian Military officer pummels female sickler doctor and breaks her skull

Friends of the victim, Dr Theresa share her story below…

We feel obliged to inform you of a disastrous and mind troubling incident. Dr Theresa is a Senior Registrar 1 in the department of Psychiatry of Obafemi
Awolowo University Teaching Hospital (Ile-Ife). She is a very gentle, easy going, ever smiling & hardworking resident doctor who has been battling sickle cell disease for more than 30 years.

This incident occurred at her residence in the early hours of Thursday 25th February 2016 in her service apartment building situated outside the hospital where she resides. Dr. Okpara, [A Wing Commander in the Nigerian Air Force] who is a resident Doctor in the Dept of Community Medicine in the same hospital where Theresa works also resides in that compound.

The parking lot within the compound is inadequate and as such tenants would have to occasionally call each other (through the security guard) to move their cars in the morning so that individuals are able to drive out. According to an eye witness (who is a doctor in the same hospital and also lives within the same compound), Dr Theresa’s car was obstructing Dr. Okpara’s car and he called her out to move her car.

 She had told him she was dressing up and would soon be out but he kept shouting and calling her. When she came out, he was still abusing her and being verbally aggressive. She then told him to take it easy since she had already told him she was dressing up and reminded him that he also does the same thing whenever his car is obstructing someone else’s.

As Theresa came out, entered her car and fastened her seat belt to drive out of the parking lot, Dr. Okpara continued barking asking her to move her car out,  she told him she was already in the car and asked if he wanted to move it out himself? He then said he will teach her a lesson and went swiflty around the car, opened her car door and held her dress and punched her face several times.  The Co-tenants had to run out to pull him away from her. At a point he reached for his metal pedal lock and was again restrained by tenants.

Following the incident he showed no remorse, as he continued in his verbal aggression with his shirt buttons undone calling her names. He also dared her to call whoever in Abuja suggesting that he was above the law as she made attempts to make calls after the incident. Dr. Theresa was rushed to the hospital as being a known Sickle cell disease patient, her health was paramount at the time.

 On arrival, it was confirmed that indeed she had Cerebrospinal fluid leaking from her brain. This continued to be copious before ameliorating after some hours. In addition to the frontal bone fracture detected initially, a further depressed nasal bone fracture was detected on CT scan. Theresa now has to decide between going for surgery to correct the facial deformity or live with a disfigured face.

Please join us in prayers for Theresa’s quick recovery, while we fight to ensure that Dr. Okpara is brought to Justice.

We would appreciate your help in giving this much needed publicity.

Sincerely yours,

Dr Lekan Abudu
On behalf of concerned colleagues

MEET THE WOMAN WHO MAY BE AMERICA’S NEXT FIRST LADY

MEET THE WOMAN WHO MAY BE AMERICA’S NEXT FIRST LADY

Melania Trump,

Melania Trump, 45, is the woman behind the man, Donald Trump. She is said to be a calming influence on the republican maverick, a trait Americans will be grateful for if he makes it to the white house. What’s more, she speaks five languages so she’ll more than hold her own in those diplomatic shindigs.

MEET THE WOMAN WHO MAY BE AMERICA’S NEXT FIRST LADY

She was born the daughter of a car dealer in communist-era Yugoslavia, her upbringing was humble but certainly not one of hardship as her family was well-off enough to afford holidays. She met The Donald at a party when she was 28 and he was 52, the pair got married at a lavish $1million ceremony in 2005 and welcomed son, Barron a year later.

MEET THE WOMAN WHO MAY BE AMERICA’S NEXT FIRST LADY

She was successful in her right before she met the mogul as she had modelling gigs around the world aged 17, however, she has had to beat off rumours that she married him just for his money. What attracted her to him then? ‘His mind, his amazing mind’ she says.

MEET THE WOMAN WHO MAY BE AMERICA’S NEXT FIRST LADY

If her husband does make it to the White House, she says she doesn’t intend to feature heavily in her first lady role but will instead focus on bringing up their son. Asked the secret to a happy marriage, he answer was simple, ‘separate bathrooms’, most women will agree.
