“With the ‘Blackgirl in the 90s’. We had fun! Slim be what? Ahahah

We met in 1994 and to cut the long story short, it’s been 23years of observing that face and body metamorphose, lol.

Conceptualize the type of lady in the throw back pictures. I leave that to you.
I dare not comment for I did not seek a santion on the release of the pictures. I am not troubled because knowing how adorable ‘Cashbadd’ is, she perhaps will just… oh she’s a very angelic lady o. She won’t do me ‘Feeh’. Hello everybody, today is my wedding anniversary.”

 

“…I am not done yet. Again, I did not seek the green light to post these pictures. Just so you know who to hold culpable in case I disappear. Lol.
In the picture, to the left, to the right side of the picture is a female model, now the 2nd lady of Ghana, ei your Excellency, we too we go way back o.
Not to digress… today is my 14th wedding anniversary. Yeah, the route had turbulences, it was muddy, rosy, revolting, honeyed, distasteful, so on and so forth. Graciously WE ARE STILL TOGETHER.

October 16th 2003, in retrospect, was one of the happiest days of my life; still is.

I will be back.

“Final post, assuredly. Lol

23/14 years ago I found my wife simpatico in every respect. Time, space, maturity etc changed that but we have been uncompromising with the number of kids we wanted, three.
Singing, ‘We started off as 2 now we’re 5’ (my version of ‘started from the bottom now we’re here’. You are considered to be nexus but I am still head of the house. With that concept the kids are sometimes betwixt and between but you know where they gravitate eventually, lol.

It is an indupitable fact that you are a loving and remarkable wife. Envious by all my very few friends (y’all can not disagree o, it’s my anniversary, when yours is up write whatever I will agree to it, lol). I love you and we thank God for yet another year.

Female blogger who accused government of corruption dies in bomb attack

0

Daphne Caruana Galizia, a prominent Maltese journalist and blogger who made repeated and detailed corruption allegations against Prime Minister Joseph Muscat’s inner circle, was on Monday killed by a car bomb.

Muscat has condemned the killing as a “barbaric” act and ordered security services to devote maximum resources to bringing those responsible to justice.

“What happened today is unacceptable on various levels. Today is a black day for our democracy and our freedom of speech,” he told reporters.

Caruana Galizia, 53, died mid-afternoon, close to her home in Bidnija in the north of the island.

The force of the blast reduced her car to pieces and catapulted the journalist’s body into a nearby field, witnesses said. She leaves a husband and three sons.

A local television station reported that she had filed a police complaint earlier this month about threats she had received.

Muscat added: “Everyone knows Ms Caruana Galizia was a harsh critic of mine, both politically and personally, but nobody can justify this barbaric act in any way.

“I will not rest until justice is done.”

In the final entry on her blog, posted within an hour of her death, Caruana Galizia reiterated an allegation that Muscat’s chief of staff, Keith Schembri, was a “crook” who used his government influence to enrich himself.

“There are crooks everywhere you look now. The situation is desperate,” she signed off.

Caruana Galizia’s death comes four months after Muscat’s Labour Party won a resounding victory in a general election he called early as a result of scandals to which Caruana Galizia’s allegations were central.

Newborn baby girl is found abandoned covered in ants after parents dumped her because she’s not a boy

0

A newborn baby girl has been rescued from a bin where she was found dumped in a plastic bag, covered in ants.

Police in Bhopal in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh believe she may have been abandoned by her parents because she was not a boy.

She was found by a passer-by who heard cries from inside the rubbish container, and found the severely underweight baby abandoned, DailyMail reports.

Dheeraj Rathore, who runs a tea stall, heard the baby cry in the early hours of Saturday.

Dheeraj said: ‘I was passing through the bin when I heard the cries of a baby.

‘I was was shocked to see an infant’s head sticking out of a red polybag in a garbage vat among the bushes.

‘Ants were all over her head and body.

Rathore called for help from two friends, and together they and his two friends cleared the insects from the infant’s body, wrapped her in a cloth and took her to a nearby hospital.

Medical staff say the child’s condition is critical, and she weighs just 3.5lbs. The normal weight for a baby carried to term is between 5.5lbs and 8.8lbs.

When she was brought to the hospital, she also has several bruises and marks on her body which could indicate physical abuse.

Police have registered a case and are looking for the parents.

The preference of sons over daughters is a serious issue in many parts of India, with fewer than 800 girls are born for every 1,000 boys in some states.

This has several causes; as daughters are traditionally married off with a dowry, they leave the family and are not around to care for their parents and a dowry can be costly.

Sons are also traditionally seen as potential heirs to property and the family business, however gender equality campaigners are trying to change this view.

What Fela did to government with his music – Ambode

0

The Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, has said the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, was as an enigmatic artiste who used his musician to fight bad governance.

The governor stated this during the inauguration of the ‘Liberation Statue’ in honour of Fela, erected at Allen Roundabout in Ikeja.

Ambode said apart from challenging people to free their minds of all inhibitions and actualise their true potential, the late music icon voluntarily turned his back on a life of comfort and privilege.

He said, “The phenomenon that the world knows as Fela was deeply rooted in the evolution of Lagos State. The story of music, art, entertainment and tourism in Lagos and Nigeria cannot be told without an eloquent mention of the Abami eda.

“On this day, October 15, which would have been Fela’s 79th birthday, the government and people of Lagos State celebrate Fela with the inauguration of this ‘Liberation Statue.’

“It has been 20 years since he passed on, but the memories he left us with remain evergreen. Today we celebrate a man who voluntarily turned his back on a life of comfort and privilege, and took up his saxophone as a weapon to fight for the liberation of our people from neo-colonialism and bad governance.

“This ‘Liberation Statue’ is not an image of Fela, but a symbol of Fela’s philosophy. This artwork was created as a form of respect and remembrance to this legend; what he stood for and fought for with his music, his struggle for freedom and Pan-Africanism, among others.”

Ambode said although Fela was no more, he was still alive in his music and in the music of Femi Kuti, Seun Kuti and other artistes who had followed his style of music.

Fayose Gives Indicted Commissioner, AG New Cars

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has fulfilled his promise to reward the recently released Finance Commissioner, Toyin Ojo, and the state Accountant General, Yemisi Owolabi

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, is never afraid to shy away from controversies.

14 days days after his Finance Commissioner, Toyin Ojo, and the state Accountant General, Yemisi Owolabi were released by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for alleged mismanagement of state funds, the governor opened his goody bag.

He handed over the keys to new Kia Rio cars shortly after a thanksgiving service to mark his third anniversary in office at the Government House.

The officials were released on Wednesday after spending two weeks in EFCC’s custody.

Fayose, who is a 2019 presidential aspirant, said the duo deserved to be rewarded for “enduring maltreatment, harassment, intimidation and oppression.”

Alleging that the arrest of the officials was illegal because only the state’s House of Assembly could raise questions about the Ekiti financial status, he added that the state government would sue the EFCC.

“The constitution of Nigeria does not empower the EFCC to arrest state officials over alleged graft. That function belongs to our state House of Assembly. We will sue  the EFCC for this illegality, pursue the case to a logical conclusion and get damages for this ill-treatment.

“The constitution of Nigeria is supreme and has overriding influence over any government parastatal such as the EFCC.”

SHOCKING! Aso Villa Clinic Without Syringes Got 1.9 Billion Naira

0

The Permanent Secretary emphasised that the figures were verifiable from the Ministries of Finance, Budget and National Planning

There have been reports that the State House Medical Clinic got 11.01 billion naira as appropriation for the period between 2015 and 2017.

This follows allegations that there are no essential consumables including syringes.

But the Permanent Secretary, State House, Jalal Arabi has refuted the report. He says the State House got only 1.9 billion naira within the last 3 years.

According to him, of the total capital appropriation of 2.9 billion naira and recurrent appropriation of 465.9 million naira for the period under reference, only the sum of 969.6 million naira (representing 32.97%) for Capital and 225.5 million naira (representing 48.41%) for recurrent were actually released.

He also revealed that there was zero capital allocation for the Medical Centre in 2017, while out of the 331.7 million naira being recurrent appropriation for 2017, the actual amount released up to September was 91.3 million naira, representing 27.5%.

The Permanent Secretary emphasised that the above figures were verifiable from the Ministries of Finance, Budget and National Planning.

“During the three-year period under review (indeed two years since no capital allocation for 2017), and despite the shortfalls between budgetary provisions and actual releases, the Centre continued to provide free services to the over 10,000 registered patients annually,” Arabi started.

He said that the Centre had also continued to execute on-going projects.

Giving further insight into the scope of the Centre’s clientele, Arabi stressed that apart from the Presidency, other beneficiaries of the free services include political appointees, the military, para-military, other security agencies, members of the National Assembly, and the general public
