RadarOnline Scolds Mariah Carey For Coming To Nigeria, Calls Nigeria 'World’s Center Of Bank Fraud & Human Trafficking'

When will these people learn to refer to Nigeria, Nigerians with some respect?!
Please read what website RadarOnline wrote about Mariah Carey's visit to Nigeria. *sighs*

But maybe the songbird should have done some homework before agreeing to the gig?Her show was at Access Bank’s Christmas Party which was also a farewell bash for the

Saidi Balogun Replies Ex-Wife Fathia Balogun, Exposes Her Past Divorce

Another ex-lovers' catfight is gradually playing itself out.
Please read Saidi's statement concerning his ex-wife's accusation that Saidi lied about their being in court over 'name cusody'.
I bet some of us didn't even know this would be the second time Fathia Balogun is going through a divorce.

Yesterday I was accused of lying to the press on a recent rumor that has been circulating. I separated from my ex-wife Fathia Balogun in 2006, over 7 years ago.  
Since we were LEGALLY MARRIED IN COURT, we had to LEGALLY DIVORCE IN COURT to finalize the issue. The public is welcome to go to the Lagos High Court to verify these records.  

Be Ready To Pay The Price Of Treason, Presidency Warns APC


Earlier on today, the All Progressives Congress (APC), in a statement, had asked the National Assembly to rise beyond partisanship and save Nigeria from imminent collapse by immediately kick-starting the process of impeaching President Goodluck Jonathan for gross misconduct.

According to APC, they were issuing this call with a high sense of responsibility and the strong belief that the impeachment of the President is a legitimate constitutional option available to the National Assembly not only to protect the nation’s democracy but also to ensure the country’s unity.

State House, through Dr Reuben Abati just released their reply:
We have noted with utter disdain, the reckless and irresponsible call by the APC on Sunday for the National Assembly to commence impeachment proceedings against President Goodluck Jonathan. 
Ordinarily, we would not have dignified Alhaji Lai Mohammed’s latest vituperations in

Nelson Mandela: 10 Things You Didn't Know About His Widow, Graca Machel

Not only is Nelson Mandela the former president of South Africa and a Nobel Peace Prize winner, but he is also a father, grandfather and even great-grandfather of a huge family. Mandela has been married three times and has fathered six children. Here he poses with his wife of 15 years, Graca Machel.

Nelson Mandela once said his wife, Graca Machel, makes him "bloom like a flower."
Despite her reluctance to marry him at first, they've been inseparable since they tied the knot on his 80th birthday.
Here are 10 things to know about the woman who was at the international icon's side to the very end.
  • She's been First Lady of two nations, buried both husbands.
Before she got married to the South African anti-apartheid icon, Machel was the first lady of Mozambique. Her husband, President Samora Machel, died in a mysterious plane crash in 1986.

Quote Of The Day: Rotimi Amaechi On Why Politicians Are & Won't Stop Robbing Nigerians

The Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, said this in Lagos during an event organized to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela.
In his words:
“If you see a thief and you allow him to be stealing, what have you done? You have stoned nobody, that is why we are stealing. Who have you stoned?  
They came out and started dancing oil subsidy, oil subsidy. They told you that they stole N2.3trn, what did you do? Instead you are protesting ‘bring more oil subsidy’; the oil subsidy that is not reaching the poor. A few individuals are going away with the money and you have done nothing.  
You are mourning Madiba, who lived up to 95, and he was very angry with Nigeria when he died. You’ve heard that $50bn is missing and you have done nothing about it. In some countries people will go on the street until they return that money. It is N8trn, it can change Nigeria. Me I want to steal only $1bn, let them bring it.  
You read Obasanjo’s letter and you are asking why is he writing the letter, is he a South-South man? In fact, when he was there what did he do? You, what have you done?  
If you don’t take your destiny in your hands, we will go and other leaders will come and continue stealing.”
