Should Tony Elumelu Be The Next CBN Governor?

Tony Elumelu

A reader wants us to discuss this, guys.
As we all know, Nigeria’s Central Bank Governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, will be forced to leave his post in March, 2014, two months before the formal expiration of his tenure. Two sources at the Presidency and a source at the Central Bank told SaharaReporters that Mr. Sanusi has been ordered to proceed on a post-retirement leave in March. 
If Mr.President would make a replacement with someone credible and vibrant, do you think Tony Elumelu would be the right choice? 
Some are of the opinion that, “The President needs an image maker, a redeemer' while others feel that “the post of CBN Governor would kind of belittle Elumelu. The guy is poised for much bigger things.

Guys, Let's Share: What Are The Lessons You Learnt From All The 2013 Crashed Celebrity Marriages?

I was sooo shocked when I heard Princess's marriage crash story.
That in an interview with NET, Princess admitted that her marriage has not been as blissful as we all thought, saying:
‘Yes my marriage has ended due to irreconcilable differences. We have been having issues since the wedding but we still remained together hoping that we would be able to work it out. But apparently, we couldn’t work it out, hence the reason for our separation. We actually ended it several months ago, but we didn’t want to make it public. I’m sure God knows best.
So sad.
