Nigerian fans on social media have raised eyebrows about this picture of Nigerian music artistes, Olamide and Wizkid holding each other closely.

Some netizens within the Nigerian social media space have rumoured that Wizkid and Olamide could be homos*xuals following this ‘public display of affection’ as they met publicly.

A section of social media users feel the picture is harmless as both parties are technically linked to women with children.

Olamide and Wizkid have had a smooth working relationship since 2011 with Olamide featuring Wizkid on his hit track titled ‘Omo to Shan’.
Usman Bugaje, an ambassadorial nominee from Kastina state, has turned down his appointment by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Bugaje is the second nominee to reject the offer, after Pauline Tallen, former deputy governor of Plateau state, turned it down as well.

While Tallen announced her decision to decline the appointment in public, Bugaje prevailed on by top government officials not to announce his rejection of the offer in the media.
Tallen had rejected her nomination on the grounds that there was no “proper consultation”. She had also explained that her decision was done in fairness to other parts of the state.

Speaking to state house correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, Simon Lalong, Plateau state governor, commended Tallen for her decision.

“Pauline is an astute politician from my state, and part of the issue we also raised was on some of the appointments that were made,” he said.

“So, all the states that had complaints are going to put it in writing and the president promised he is going to look into it.”
Regarding Tallen’s decision to reject the appointment, Lalong said:

    “Well, it is not only about her husband; I think is the dimension of plateau politics because I had already made complaints to Mr President that appointments should not be concentrated in one zone.

“And so, all these appointments came again from one zone, in that particular zone. So the complaints that are coming from our state is not about her own personal interest; it is the fact that two ambassadorial appointments are coming from the same zone.
Oh yah!.. Love knows no bounds. This couple pulled massive attention at their traditional wedding ceremony which was held recently in Akwa Ibom state.

A 20-year-old man identified as Emmanuel Effiong has said he beheaded a woman at the Aba park on the instructions of a mad woman, who allegedly advised him to throw a human head into a river or he would go mad.
He said:

    “I gave a mad woman money one day in Aba and she told me to look for a skull or human head and throw inside a river or I will go mad.
    One morning, when I saw a lifeless body in front of the park, I decided to cut off the dead woman’s head for the exercise. I threw the head into the Aba River to remain a normal person,”
Effiong made the confession while in the custody of the police. He had been arrested by police operatives in Aba, Abia State in connection with a threat to kidnap and kill one Ikechukwu Udogu. It was gathered that the search for Effiong started when the police got the information that an unknown person, through a phone text, threatened to kill one Udogu, if he failed to pay him a N15m ransom.
It was learnt that police operatives attached to the Central Police Station, Aba, swung into action and arrested the suspect with the mobile phone number used in sending the threat message.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Adeleye Oyabade, who confirmed the arrest of the suspect, said he confessed to the crime.
Oyebade added that the suspect also confessed that he was behind the headless woman found on September 29, 2016 at the Aba main motor park. He said three knives and a phone were recovered from the suspect, adding that investigation was in progress to unravel the mystery behind the dastardly act.
Speaking with Southern City News, Effiong, who said he hails from Ikot Edet in Akwa Ibom State, accepted that he demanded the ransom from Udogu for refusing to pay him his salary since September 2009.

He said:

    “I served Mr. Udogu for many years as his gateman, but he stopped paying my salary since September 2009. So, I decided to send him the threat message to get my money from him.”
Nigerian governors who wish to tackle the root causes of Boko Haram insurgency should demonstrate that they are ‘transparent and accountable’ to the people by declaring their personal assets, disclosing government expenditures and delivering justice to friends and foes, an official at the U.S. State Department told northern governors on Tuesday.

About eleven governors and a deputy governor from northern Nigeria gathered at the U.S. Institute of Peace, USIP, in Washington DC, on Tuesday for a three day symposium to proffer solutions for a region ravaged by a seven-year insurgency and lagging behind in virtually all development indices.
At least 2.5 million people remain displaced in northern Nigeria following an insurgency that has killed more than 25, 000 people in seven years, and left thousands of women kidnapped, including the Ckibok girls who were abducted in their school more than two years ago.

The insurgency and instability in Nigeria’s northeast have left a region in ruins and in need of money to rebuild at a time oil prices are historically low. With Boko Haram’s strength significantly reduced, the governors who gathered here seemed to be looking at the post insurgency.

The gathering agreed that corruption, injustice, poverty, hunger, illiteracy and lack of inclusiveness in government among other things are the root causes of extremism, and any long term solution would have to tackle them.
Dr. Sarah Sewall, Under Secretary for Civilian Security, Democracy and Human Rights at the U.S. States Department, called on Nigerian governors to ‘build trust’ with their people by being ‘transparent and accountable’.
She said personal disclosure of assets is a pivotal part of being accountable to the people.

Out of 36 governors in Nigeria, including those in northern Nigeria who are in Washington DC, less than two percent have declared their assets publicly.
President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo reluctantly declared their assets publicly after making the promise during the campaign. And even that declaration was not detailed and inquiries at the Assets Declaration Office translated to nothing.
The Nigerian governors, who often pledge in public to fight corruption, but refuse to declare their own assets, have refused to follow the somehow example of President Buhari.
Apart from declaring their assets, the governors should also disclose government expenditure daily for people to trace money flow, Dr. Sewall said, adding that a more transparent government would attract more foreign investments and donations.

Besides, she said, the governors have to deliver justice to the people to sustain trust in government. She mentioned the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, who after their members were massacred by the Nigerian army, were recently banned by the Kaduna state government.
Amnesty International had said that close to 400 shiites in Nigeria were killed by Nigerian troops last December and no officer has been held responsible. The troops fired at protesters, they said, to protect the Nigerian Chief of Army Staff, General Tukur Buratai, from being assassinated.
But, the Shiites disputed that version, saying that they were having their annual celebration and had partially obstructed the road and were punished for that. A Commission of Inquiry has said that hundreds of Shiites were killed by the army.

Dr. Sewall said justice and accountability would increase trust in government and urged governors to pursue that goal. They must also ensure they pursue inclusiveness and diversity in the people they decide to partner with.

More importantly, she said, the governors should continue to communicate with their people to sustain the social contract. ”You can never over-communicate,’ she said.
We refer to the confessions of crime made by Hon Justice John Inyang Okoro, JSC and Hon Justice Sylvester Ngwuta JSC and call on both justices of Nigeria’s apex court to resign from office and service within the next.
Our considered call made with deepest sense of responsibility and  after the broadest consultation is founded on the fact that both Justice Okoro  and Justice Ngwuta confessed to have suppressed an alleged corruption advances from two ex-governors, serving as ministers in the federal government, contrary To clear provisions of the law.
While Justice Okoro claimed that he was approached by the former governor f Rivers State and current Minister of Transportation, Barr. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi to influence the outcome of the Appeal Court in the Akwa Ibom State gubernatorial Election Petition, Justice Ngwuta deposed to an affidavit claiming that both Amaechi and Dr Ogbonnaya Onu, tried to influence the outcome of Supreme Court cases in Rivers and Abia State respectively.
Our concern here is not whether the allegation by the senior judicial officials as contained in their respective letters to the National Judicial Council (NJC) are true of false, as the NJC and /or the Federal High Court  will be in a position to establish that in trial, when the judges are expected to substantiate the allegations.
Of immediate concern to us is that both judges have confessed to committing of crimes if their allegations are true and would still have committed a crime, if they are false.
Section 23, Sub-sections 1, 2 and 3 of the Corrupt Practices an Other Related Acts, 2000 ion of persons Act states as follows:
Duty to Report Bribery Transactions :
    Any Public officer to whom any gratification is given, promised or offered, in contravention of any provision of this act, shall report such gift, or offer together with the name, if known of the person who gave ,promised or offered such gratification to him, to the nearest officer of the Commission (ICPC) or Police officer.
    Any person from whom gratification has been solicited or obtained or from whom an attempt has been made to collect such in contravention of any provision of the act, shall at the earliest opportunity thereafter report such soliciting, or obtaining ,or attempt to obtain the gratification together with the name, if known or a true and full description of the person who solicited or obtained, or attempted to obtain the gratification from him to the nearest officer of the commission or Police officer.
    Any person who fails without reasonable excuse to comply with subsections (1) and (2) shall be guilty of an offence , and shall on conviction, be liable to a fine, not exceeding One hundred Thousand Naira ,or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years or both fine and imprisonment
In the case of Justice Okoro, he claimed to have informed the Chief Justice of Nigera (CJN) only on February 1, 2016, nearly one year after the said advances were allegedly made. In the case of Justice Ngwuta no such report, according to his own confession was made at all until after his arrest by the Directorate of State security (DSS) and subsequent bail on self-recognition
These judges were by the letters of the cited law supposed to approach the Police or the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) and lodge a report, which ,they failed to do.
Given the foregoing, both judges have admitted guilt and have indicted themselves to be guilty in line with Section 23 (1 and 3) of the cited act. And this is not within the bracket of responsibilities of the National Judicial Commission (NJC).
In making this call, we are fully conscious and well –advised on the legal principle that confession is superior to any other evidence.
This is without prejudice imposed by law on the two judges to prove their assertions as it affects the accused ministers in court, failing which the two judges would have fallen into the self-made trap of lying under oath and contravening the law of perjury, which is still criminal in nature and beyond the responsibilities of the NJC.
We are equally surprised that, particularly in the case of Justice Okoro, who claimed to have informed the CJN, albeit one year later, the office of the CJN did not advise or remind the former on what steps to take in the light of the subsisting law, so cited ,but rather sat on the complaint if true.  Hence the only reason why we would not call on the CJN to resign is because he has two weeks to retire from the bench, from office and from service.
Our considered call must be sharply distinguished from well-intended request by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) for the judges to stand aside as a confidence boosting measure, curiously opposed by the NJC. Whereas NBA’s request is founded on temporary withdrawal of service, as was done in the case of Justice Ayo Salami, JCA, former President of the Court of Appeal, pending the consideration of the allegations in the NJC and in court, ours is a call for resignation based on respective self-indictments evident in the respective statements of the two senior judges..
We call on all well-meaning Nigerians, to take timely steps to get these two otherwise honourable justices, who have brought odium to the judiciary to grant the institution a reprieve from the shadows of corruption.
We insist that anyone, no matter his/her current position, political persuasion or standing in society indicted by any prima fascia evidence produced in the course of trial of the judges, including the ministers mentioned should be prosecuted, but certainly not on the basis of verbal public declarations by embattled ,highly placed suspects.
Once again we call on all facets of the judiciary and all strata of the Nigerian society to appreciate the common good contained for Nigeria in winning the way against corruption, which this federal government is advisedly pushing to the hilt.

Mrs. Magareth Alameiseigha, the widow of the First Executive Governor of Bayelsa State, Late Diepreye Solomon Alameisegha, yesterday exonerated the leadership of the All Progressive Congress (APC) from the events which led to the October 2015 death of her husband.
According to Mrs. Alameiseigha, though the events leading to the last year death of her husband sparked off controversy between the PDP and APC ahead of the Governorship election, the killing of her husband started with his removal from office,arrest,trial and seizure of owned properties under the leadership of the PDP.
Mrs. Margareth Alameiseigha, the widow of former governor of Bayelsa state, Late Chief D.S.P Alamieyeseigha, while speaking with news men during the First Year Anniversary of his death, said ‎the controversy surrounding the death of her husband was not necessary, ” the PDP that frustrated and sent her husband to his early grave
and not the All Progressives Congress (APC) as widely speculated.”
According to her, “I can categorically say today that it was the PDP that arrested my husband, seized all his properties and humiliated him to the point of his death.It is PDP that killed my husband and not the APC. It was PDP that arrested my husband, it was PDP that humiliated my husband and killed him. At the end they seized everything that belonged to him.”

    “It was the PDP that tormented my husband and he died as a result of the humiliation he suffered in the hands of the PDP. As far as am concerned, the humiliated me and took everything away from us.”
Mrs. Alamieyeseigha, described her husband as a man who wholeheartedly fought for the emancipation of the Ijaw people but that it is sad to note that the same people he fought for that sold her husband out to the PDP that eventually killed him.
Recounting how her husband was protested against and humiliated before he was arrested, she called on the people of Ijaw ethnic nationality to shun
acts that may cause them to betray their leaders.

    “When my husband took over the mantle of leadership, he saw how his people were suffering. As an intelligent man, he saw the need to fight for resource control as the way out for his people.”

    “But at the end it is the same people that he fourth for that betrayed him. They sold him out to the PDP that eventually killed him. I want to advise the Ijaw people to stop betraying their leaders, so that they can move forward.”

Most people relate mornings with the feeling of potential and energy that each day brings. Nevertheless, starting the day in the wrong way can prevent good mood and all the positive energy. In the mornings you need to:

1. Expose Yourself to Some Sun
According to a study which was published in “PLoS One” exposure to sun can help you lose weight. There were 54 participants in this study, and all of them wore devices on their wrist for a week. These devices recorded the morning sun exposure of the candidates.

Throughout the week the candidates noted down their calorie intake and what they ate. Candidates who had been exposed to sun more had a BMI which was lower than those who spent less time being exposed to sun, regardless of physical activity, diet and age.

Our daily rhythm and biological clock is affected by morning light. Moreover, morning rays contain blue light, which has a powerful influence on the daily rhythm.

All you need to do is expose yourself to morning sunlight for 20 to 30 minutes every day.

2. Focus
Being aware of your actions will make it easier for you to control your body weight. Doing things deliberately is crucial. Moreover, this is going to reduce stress.

According to a study from the University of Utah, which included 38 participant aged between 20 and 45 years, people who are more aware of their action experience less stress that those who are not aware.

Morning meditation is a perfect way to start your day.

    Don’t Buy Your Meals

Prepare yourself a healthy meal at home, and avoid buying food from the nearest bakery. Eating something healthy is of crucial importance when it comes to the process of losing weight.

Natural cures for warts
Warts are a result of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) which has somewhere over 100 types which affect people in different ways, but most often it depends on the immunity. Strains which cause the common warts are harmless to some extent, while other strains are much more serious.

If a certain medical treatments which contained chemicals did not help you, feel free to try these natural, home cures.

Experts for body language are dealing with the relationship between different facial expressions, body movements, and positions on emotional state, social, and personal life of a person. They have developed many theories about personality based on different body movements and behavior. One of these experts, Patti Wood, suggested that sleeping

positions that you have with a partner in bed can tell you much about your relationship. This phenomenon is due to subconscious mechanisms that replace conscious mind when we are asleep. Body experts have identified several sleeping positions and explained them in terms of relationship with a partner.

The Spoon Position
The spoon position is a sign of a protective role that one partner has in the relationship. Less than 20% of couples sleep in this position. The spooned partner is the vulnerable person that needs protection and the spooning one is more confident and offers to protect.

The Loose Spoon
After some time, couples go from the spoon position to the loose spoon in which they make a bit of space between them. Woods says that this is identical pattern of relationship, but occurs in more mature couples. This is less sexual position than classical spooning.

The Chase
This position looks like spooning, but it is changing during the night, because one partner always kind of tries to get some space and the other one is chasing them. This is often referred to as “illegal spooning”, because it means that one partner does not feel like being in close relationship, while the other one insists.

The Tangle
This is a very intimate position and it is not common at all. It is more common in the beginning of the relationship and it is very sexual. Probably, many couples are in this phase occasionally, but not for a long time.

If the report from the Presidency is anything to go by, President Muhammadu Buhari, has concluded plans to dump Vice President, Yemi Obasanjo, ahead of the 2019 General Election, Post-Nigeria gathered.
According to reports, Buhari has agreed to settle for a top politician in the South-East, who is presently a serving Governor.
The decision to dump Osinbajo, is allegedly connected to the recent comment made by the Vice President, who had faulted the recently launched biography of Buhari, where he (Osinbajo), disclosed that he was ‘nominated’ to become Buhari’s running mate in 2015.
Sources averred that the comments had not gone down well with Buhari.
The book, written by Professor John Paden, and titled: ‘Muhammadu Buhari: The Challenges of Leadership in Nigeria’, claimed that the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Leader, Bola Tinubu pressured the President against choosing Osinbajo as running mate, in the 2015 Presidential election.
Faulting Buhari’s biography, Osinbajo gave an insight into how he became the number two citizen of Nigeria, though he was not a politician, in the midst of the intrigues, and build up to the 2015 general elections.
Osinbajo’s explanation came last Wednesday night, against the backdrop of the controversy trailing how he was nominated, and his eventual emergence as the Vice President.
Speaking at a dinner organised in honour of over 200 graduates and beneficiaries of the Presidential Amnesty Programmes, at the Presidential Villa, Osinbajo gave an indication that he was not in the reckoning abinitio.
    His word, “I was in a group of young men and women, and one of them asked the question; how did I become Vice President, I was never a politician, or anything like that.
    “So, I tried to explain; it is quite simple that someone somewhere has to recommend you. Somebody somewhere has to give you a helping hand, whether to be a Vice President, or to be an Aircraft Pilot, or to be an Engineer; somebody somewhere has to give you an opportunity.”

Reacting to Osinbajo’s statement on Monday, the editorial Board Chairman of the Nation Newspaper, Sam Omatseye, who is also a core loyalist to Tinubu said: “After all the hoopla, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, came with the jab. It was a simple sentence: “I was nominated.”

    “He sentenced the controversy to a permanent rest. The so-called authorised biographer of PMB, was exposed as a phony scholar. Even if you write an authorised biography, it is no excuse to lie. He lacked rigour, or the curiosity of enquiry. He should have consulted Osinbajo himself. He didn’t. No one should do research under such a Professor.
    “With that sentence, Osinbajo demystified a scholar, punctured a cabal of malevolent naysayers, and spoke to history.
    “He spoke with the conviction of an Evangelist, the clarity of a Lawyer, and the comeback of an avenging angel. He mentioned no names, and abused no one. He merely said he was nominated. He was not a politician. He belonged to a group, and someone has to put you forward to such a high office. And who else could have done it!”

The Lagos Division of the Federal High Court on Tuesday fixed December 12 for its ruling on an application filed by Government Ekpemupolo (popularly known as Tompolo), to refer his case against the Nigerian government to the Court of Appeal. Mr. Ekpemupolo, who was declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in February, had sued the Nigerian government seeking an end to his trial for alleged fraud.
The former militant leader is facing prosecution by the EFCC for allegedly stealing about N45 billion. He had ignored several court summons since February, and has been on the run ever since. In the same month, his lawyer, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, approached the Court of Appeal, asking it to set aside the warrant of arrest issued against him.
In April, he filed an action before a federal court in Lagos asking for an interpretation and nullification of sections 221 and 306 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015. He said the said sections violated his constitutional rights.
Section 221 of the law states that: “Objections shall not be taken or entertained during proceedings or trial on the ground that of an imperfect or erroneous charge.”
According to Section 306: “An application for stay of proceedings in respect of a criminal matter before a court shall not be entertained.”
Mr. Ekpemupolo said the sections prevented the court from exercising its jurisdiction to entertain any objection to a criminal charge and an application for a stay of proceedings pending appeal.
On Tuesday, Tolu Mukoro, counsel representing the Attorney-General of the Federation, urged the court not to grant Mr. Ekpemupolo’s application on the grounds that the Nigerian Constitution permits the government to enact any law, including the Administration of Criminal Justice Act.
“That is reasonably justifiable in a democratic society and Tompolo cannot seek to strike down the ACJA,” he said. Mr. Mukoro added that since the ex-militant leader had consistently failed to respond to court summons, he should not be allowed to benefit from his wrongdoing by obtaining a favour from the court.
I.B Mohammed, counsel to the EFCC, argued that since the matter commenced under the Fundamental Rights Enforcement Procedure Rules, it can no longer be referred to an appellate court.
“There is no provision in the said fundamental rights rules to justify such transfer,” Mr. Mohammed said. In his reply, Mr. Adegboruwa said the Section 45 cited by Mr. Mukoro was inapplicable, adding that his client was not seeking to strike down the entire ACJA but two of its provisions.
Mr. Adegboruwa also argued that the EFCC could not rely on its main counter-affidavit at the interlocutory stage since the substantive case is yet to be argued. After taking argument from all counsels, Justice Olatoregun Ishola adjourned the case to December 12, 2016, for ruling.
