No regrets losing to Buhari-President Jonathan


President Jonathan,on Wednesday, spoke at a grand House Reception organised in his honour by the Chairman Emeritus of DAAR Communications Plc, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, owners of AIT and Raypower.

Jonathan, who was also presented by rare mementos by Dokpesi, saidac:
 ‘‘By this time people are supposed to be running away from someone who has lost an election but I am being celebrated by Daar Communications PLc.
“For me, whatever happened in the election I have accepted it in good faith. Even though, some have argued that those I entrusted with my campaign disappointed me, I have no regrets for losing because in any political processes, there are all kinds of stories and conspiracies.
“We are a very religious society; whether Christians or Muslims or some other religions, I believe it is the will of God that the election went the way it did.
I have always maintained that for the ordinary Nigerian, what is important is the style of governance, not who is even the president.“Anybody can be the President any day but if the country is peaceful, and economic activities are going on smoothly, our children are going to school, hospitals are okay and they can eat what they want to eat, then, of course people will be happy. 
I believe the incoming administration will toe that line and Nigerians will begin to see that there is no difference between political parties because even as we see there is no difference between the PDP and the APC. If you look at the number of people that moved from PDP to APC, then you will really see that both parties are almost the same.What is important to us as Nigerians is what the government is bringing to bear and I have always maintained that politicians must learn to put the people first. If our aspiration is really for the interest of the people, then you wouldn’t want to hurt these people, you wouldn’t want anybody to be slapped because of your own ambition.For me, my ambition is to see what contribution I can make for the ordinary people and that is why their lives are special to me. 
And I wouldn’t do anything that would create crisis, to kill innocent people. ‘‘People should not be surprised for the decision I took. in Nigeria. Doing that is diminishing Nigeria. I wouldn’t want to be a party that will diminish this country.‘‘There is combination of bad and good in my administration just like in any other administration, but what should be uppermost in the mind of the leader is to make sure that the bad is not more than the good. One thing I must always ensure is peace and unity of this country.‘‘We must have a nation before aspiring to hold any position: without a nation, you can’t be elected to any post. I charge all politicians to consider the people first before self. You can lose today and win tomorrow but anybody that dies in the process can’t be revived again. While looking for political offices, we must conduct ourselves in a way that will not halt the lives of innocent people,” Jonathan said.

Photos: Thief caught at Mambilla hostel at Kaduna Poly at past 1am


A Blog reader tells the story. Read below...

Woke up to the noise of students from IMO hall of the Mambila hostel of Kaduna Polytechnic, main campus, screaming out loud, saying 'throw him down'. Seems he walked into a room which wasn't his and tried to move phones of the occupants, and he was caught, he got some really good beating tho. When he was asked by someone who recognised him as Stainless, he said he was on his "trips" which means he was under the influence and he forgot his room and walked into the wrong room. After a lot of beatings, the dean of Student Affairs came to pick him up at about 1:40am and said he would handle the issue.


Woman tells how Nigerian lover proposed after 6 months,confessed he married her for Visa(Photo)

  

Deana Charles was left humiliated when her Nigerian groom was found texting another woman just half an hour after their wedding. Then he admitted he only married her for a visa.

Sales assistant Deana, from Tiverton, Devon, met Ben, 25, on a dating site in 2010. She was instantly attracted to his looks and was hooked after he struck up a flirty conversation with her. 
“My whole world came crashing down when I found out my marriage was a fake. I loved Ben with all my heart. We’d made loads of plans for the future and he seemed desperate to start a family
.”I wasn’t serious about finding love, I’d only signed up for a bit of a laugh. As soon as I saw Ben’s picture, though, I was smitten. He had gorgeous brown eyes and a great body — just my type. We started chatting and he explained he’d come to the UK from Nigeria to study for a business degree. I couldn’t imagine being so far away from my family and friends and I told him he was really brave.”

Ben was persistent online and was keen to meet up as soon as possible. Deana was nervous at first but, three months after they started talking, she agreed to travel to London to meet him for a day of sightseeing. She continued:
“It was the perfect first date. Ben took me to see Big Ben and we went to the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. As soon as we shared our first kiss I could feel myself falling for him.
He asked me to stay for a few days and I said yes. It felt like I’d known him for ages.”
Days turned into weeks and, after a fleeting visit home to pick up some belongings, Deana agreed to move in with Ben in Catford, South East London.
“I was surprised when he asked me to move in with him so soon but I was also really excited. But my mum was really concerned that I was giving up everything for someone I’d only just met.Some of my friends said the same. No one was completely sure of him. I just shrugged off their concerns because I was convinced he was the right man for me.”In August 2011, six months after they first met in person, Ben popped the question.
“Ben asked me to marry him while we were having breakfast at home. It wasn’t very romantic. He didn’t even get down on one knee, but he did buy me an imitation diamond ring. I was shocked he wanted to marry me so soon but I was completely in love.”

Though she’d dreamt of a big, romantic wedding, Ben was determined to wed as soon as possible. So Deana agreed to a register office wedding in January 2012, with a low-key reception at a local Chinese restaurant.
“My family were concerned but they all turned out and supported me. When I walked down the aisle Ben told me I looked stunning. And I meant every word of my vows.”After the ceremony, Deana urged Ben to call his family to tell them the good news.
“He was reluctant to get his phone out. He eventually agreed to call his mum but when I looked over his shoulder at the screen, a message flashed up from a girl. She’d texted Ben to tell him she loved and missed him. My legs turned to jelly as I remembered she was his ex-girlfriend in Nigeria. was in pieces but Ben begged me for another chance. He said he’d only text her because of last-minute nerves. I didn’t want to storm out of my wedding so, after lots of tears, I let it go.”
“I wanted to wait a few years before getting pregnant as I was still worried about the message. But Ben was determined to be a dad. I thought it was his way of showing he was serious. We tried for a baby but we struggled to conceive.”
 But 13 months into their marriage, Deana borrowed Ben’s laptop and her worst fears were confirmed.
“My heart stopped when I saw he’d been sending messages to a girl on a social network site and she had sent him explicit pictures. Ben told her he loved her and wanted a baby with her.
Minutes later I received a message from the girl — she felt so guilty, she’d messaged me to come clean.”
 Devastated Deana confronted Ben.
“When he realised there was no way back, he told me he’d only married me for a visa. It explained why he’d been so keen to get me pregnant — the authorities would find it harder to deport him.”Disgusted Deana packed her bags, returned to Devon the next day and filed for divorce. After two years, Ben finally agreed to it. Deana says:

“I felt relieved. Looking back, I realise how naive I was. Ben was due to finish his degree when he proposed, which meant his student visa would expire. He had to get me up the aisle as soon as possible.”
 Deana, who has not spoken to Ben since their divorce and no longer knows where he lives, says:
“It took me a long time to trust another man but I have recently met someone and am trying to move on.”
 Ben says:

“My mate used to send me dirty pictures of girls he was seeing. I knew my wife would get jealous if she saw them on my phone so I got rid of them or sent them to my email. She must have checked my email that day and then found the pictures.”

Meet the girl who refuses to shave her hairy body

A female university student has revealed she doesn't shave her body hair.Yasmin Gasimova bared all her hair in a blog post, and even showed off her downy black belly hair in a series of pictures.
The 19-year-old from Reading says the only hair grooming she undertakes is on her face - and she removes her natural beard only when she can be bothered.

The first year student at Liverpool University is studying computer science and philosophy. She says she's spent the last eight years not caring about her body hair - and only shaving her legs when she wants a one night stand.

Writing for student newspaper The Tab, Yasmin said:

"Being hairy isn't scary. In a society where women are expected to shave, I'm not ashamed to admit I don't.I might trim my pubes if I'm going on holiday, but catch me on a normal day when my armpits are bushy and my legs furry, and you might be surprised."
Brunette Yasmin recalls being bullied at school when moustache hairs started to sprout on her upper lip when she was just 10-years-old.
"I was trying to shave my noticeably hairy stomach, "I was never not self-conscious of my hair, but now I embrace it.I stopped caring when I was 11, as having naturally thick, fast-growing hair meant I'd need to waste an hour just to get prickly dots on my legs, which would grow back in a week.It's a huge inconvenience for me, as it never made me feel comfortable, gave me loads of ingrown hairs, and my hairless legs wouldn't match the rest of my hairy body."If I do shave, which is very, very rare, it's for absolute necessity.
"If I'm going on a beach holiday, having swimming lessons, or if I'm trying to pull a one night stand, I'll shave.
"I still unfortunately prefer the inconvenience of shaving to the inevitable dirty looks and rejection."
She says women should embrace themselves the way they were created
  "Although women have just as much body hair, albeit generally thinner and lighter, as a society we have decided they have to be completely hairless in order to be seen as truly feminine."But nothing about a woman's natural body should make her feel like less of a woman."
"There is also nothing dirty or unclean about body hair," she continued.
"Besides, we shouldn't hold women to a higher standard of cleanliness than men.
"This is the reality of a woman's body, and it shouldn't be hidden away."

Footballer kills mechanic over age difference(Photo)


Disagreement over age difference has led to the death of a mechanic, Moruf Sanni, in the Yaba area of Lagos State.
PUNCH Metro learnt that Moruf and a resident, identified simply as Somebody, had first fought on Sunday night.
The fight was reportedly over age rivalry as Somebody claimed to be older than Moruf, while the 23-year-old victim said he was older and deserved to be respected by the former.Some elders in the community were said to have intervened and mediated between the duo
However, on Monday, our correspondent was told that Somebody called one Jacob to beat up the victim and teach him a lesson.
Jacob, a 20-year-old footballer from Afikpo North, Ebonyi State, was said to have accosted the victim and stabbed him several times in the neck and head until he gave up the ghost.

The incident happened on Ajoke Street in Ago village, Iwaya,Yaba.A resident, Sikiru Alabi, said he was attracted to the scene of the incident by the noise made by residents. 
Alabi, who described Moruf as a hardworking mechanic, said he met both the suspect and victim’s corpse tied together in the midst of a crowd.
“That fateful Monday, around 7.30am, I heard people speaking that somebody had been killed.I did not want to go there, but when I learnt it was Moruf that was involved, I decided to see things for myself.On getting to the scene, I saw that the boy was dead. He was stabbed in the neck and head. The boy, who killed him, had also been arrested by the community and was chained to the corpse. People put the corpse on his shoulders and asked him to carry his load.”
He said to prevent a mob action, he quickly alerted policemen from the Sabo division.Moruf’s father, Lukman, a taxi driver, said he had gone to look for fuel and when he returned, a neighbour told him what happened.
“Somebody ran to my house. He said a strange man was fighting with my son. I immediately rushed there, only to see the corpse of my son.The suspect was tied to my son’s corpse. I simply thanked him for killing my son and walked away.”
Our correspondent gathered that the victim’s mother, on seeing her dead son, lost her mind.
A relative, who did not identify herself, told PUNCH Metro that it was the second time in three years that such calamity would befall the family.
She said,
 “February 20 of this year made it exactly three years that the first child of the family was killed.“A police stray bullet hit him when the police came to look for some hoodlums. So, when this one happened again, their mother just ran away and has not been seen since then.”
Our correspondent learnt that she could also not be reached on the telephone since the incident happened.
PUNCH Metro was told that Moruf’s body had been deposited in a mortuary while the suspect had been arrested by the police.Moruf’s father urged the police to release his corpse to the family for burial.
A police source, however, told our correspondent that the suspect did not talk about the age difference issue in his confessional statement.The source said, 
“He said they went for a birthday party on Sunday night and it was there they had a disagreement.The following morning, he confronted Moruf and the deceased then brought out a knife which he collected from him.
“He said Moruf then got a bottle and it was while he wanted to block him from using it that it mistakenly stabbed him in the neck.”

Army dismisses 200 soldiers for failure to capture Sambisa forest


The Nigeria Army at the Rukuba Barracks in Jos, Plateau State, has dismissed about 200 soldiers from service for their failure to capture the Sambisa Forest, a notorious hideout for Boko Haram terrorists in Borno State.They were dismissed for laxity and cowardice in the course of duty.

According to Vanguard,one of the affected soldiers, Aguloye Sunday, an indigene of Ondo State, who confirmed the dismissal to journalists in Jos, said they were arraigned on a two-count charge of “failure to perform military duty and disobedience to standing order.”

He, however, argued that they would seek redress in court as the charges pressed against him and his colleagues were “untrue, false and malicious.”
Denying the claim by the army authorities that the soldiers abandoned their duties and ran away, Mr Sunday explained that sufficient weapons were not provided for them to fight the terrorists and, therefore, they ran out of weapons.He also said the weapons provided for the troops were obsolete.According to him,
“the bombs given to us were made in 1964; they were expired, so we could not use them.“Each of us was given five bullets, not five rounds, to fire. While in the forest, our biggest weapon was to cover just a distance of 400 meters, but our enemy had aircraft weapons that could cover a distance of more than 1,000 metres, aside other dangerous weapons.“We only retreated to our base and waited in vain for ammunition for three days.”
Meanwhile, Nigerian Army has said the figure being bandied was incorrect and that no dismissals were pre-planned by the Army High Command.

Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col. S. K. Usman, in a statement, said:
 “On disciplinary action being taken against some soldiers for cowardice and desertion in the face of enemies, especially as regards the fight against Boko Haramterrorists, most of the stories and figure being peddled are far from accurate.
“Disciplinary processes or trials are never done with prior intention to dismiss anyone in the Nigerian Army. The only intention is to dispense justice and even at that, due process is normally followed.”

You are messing with the wrong person-Stella Damasus to critics of her ''Bible Photo''



A few days back,Stella Damasus shared a photo of her reading the bible by a pool.She said people were stunned to see someone reading a bible by a pool.Now,she says she head some have been going crazy over that post,saying she is too sinful to carry a bible..
"So i just got information that some bloggers have been going crazy because of my post with my BIBLE. According to them, I am too sinful to carry the bible or talk about God. When I found out that these people live in Nigeria I was wondering how my love for God and his word was more important to them than the crisis facing the nation that they should be talking about. Instead of me to get angry, I rejoiced and praised my God because I realized that the enemy cannot handle where God is taking me and the blessings that are coming my way, so he is doing all he can to push my buttons. This is my response "you are messing with the wrong person so stop wasting your time". To all those who feel ashamed or are worried about spreading the good news of Christ because of what people may say; don't let the enemy shut your mouth. Don't let him put fear or intimidation in front of you. Don't let him stop you from carrying out your assignment. Most importantly, let God fight your battles but keep spreading his word regardless. #blockoutthehaters #iamtooblessedtobestressed #Godpikin #iloveJesus #annointed #childofGod #princessinhiscourt"

Top FIFA officials arrested in Zurich this morning for collecting bribe

As FIFA leaders gathered for a meeting in the 5-star Baur au Lac hotel in Zurich this morning May 27th, Swiss law enforcement officials arrived unannounced and arrested 7 of the highest-ranking football officials in the world, at the request of the US Department of Justice. Read full story below
Seven FIFA officials were arrested in dawn raids on charges of receiving millions of US dollars in bribes. A separate criminal investigation into the how the 2018 and 2022 World Cups were allocated was also launched by Swiss authorities.
Sepp Blatter faces Prince Ali bin al-Hussein in Friday's election as he seeks a fifth term as FIFA president.
Fifa, world football's governing body, has been dogged by allegations of corruption and wrongdoing in recent years.

The latest developments are another major blow, although Fifa communications director Walter De Gregorio insisted the organisation was continuing to reform.

"This is good for Fifa," he told a news conference following news of the arrests. "It hurts, it is not easy, but it confirms we are on the right track."

The seven Fifa officials were arrested after the US Department of Justice issued a 47-count indictment charging 14 defendants with racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering conspiracies in a 24-year scheme.
"The indictment alleges corruption that is rampant, systemic and deep-rooted," said New York attorney general Loretta Lynch.
"It spans at least two generations of soccer officials who, as alleged, have abused their positions of trust to acquire millions of dollars in bribes and kickbacks."
The charges allege:
  • Nine current or former Fifa officials, including Jeffrey Webb and former Fifa vice president Jack Warner, charged with corruption
  • Four individual and two corporate defendants - including former Concacaf general secretary Chuck Blazer and Warner's son Darayn plead guilty
  • Alleged scheme "fostered a culture of corruption and greed that created uneven playing field"
  • "Undisclosed and illegal payments, kickbacks and bribes became a way of doing business at Fifa" - US DOJ
  • Majority of scheme involved corruption over media and marketing rights to matches and tournaments 

Here Are the FIFA Officials Indicted on Corruption Charges of up to $100million

Jeffrey Webb: President of Concacaf, one of the six regional confederations that compose FIFA, and vice president of FIFA
Jack Warner: Former president of Concacaf and vice president of FIFA
Eugenio Figueredo: Former president of Conmebol, the South American federation, and outgoing FIFA vice president
Eduardo Li: President of Costa Rican federation, set to join FIFA executive committee this week
Julio Rocha: President of Nicaraguan association
Costas Takkas: Former president of Cayman Islands federation
Rafael Esquivel: President of Venezuelan association since 1988
José Maria Marin: Former president of Brazil’s federation
Nicolás Leoz: Former president of Conmebol and former member of FIFA executive committee
Alejandro Burzaco: Argentine sports media executive
Aaron Davidson: President of Traffic Sports USA — a promoter of soccer events — and chairman of the board of North American Soccer League
Hugo Jinkis: Soccer media executive
Mariano Jinkis: Soccer media executive
José Margulies: Charged as intermediary who facilitated illegal payments

What About Sepp Blatter?

Sepp Blatter, president of FIFA since 1998, was not charged, though the soccer officials who were indicted might present prosecutors with information that is damaging to Mr. Blatter. An election, seemingly pre-ordained to give Mr. Blatter a fifth term as president, is scheduled for Friday in Zurich. It will go on as planned, a FIFA spokesman said.
