Breaking news from INEC. They have just set up a fact finding mission to ascertain the veracity of the claims and allegations of irregularities in Rivers State.
A statement by the Secretary to the commission, Augusta Ogakwu, at the National Collation Centre for the Presidential Election in Abuja on Monday, said it was necessitated by the call for the cancellation of the elections in the state by the All Progressives Congress.
Ogakwu said members of the committee had left for a fact-finding mission to the state and were expected to submit their report before the end of collation of results of other states and the Federal Capital Territory. She said the commission would subsequently make its decision known after receiving the report of the fact-finding committee. More tweets below

The Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, has declared a dusk-to-dawn curfew on Port Harcourt, the state capital, hours after the Independent National Electoral Commission announced the result of the presidential and National Assembly elections in the state.
In a terse statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, George Feyi, the governor said the curfew will hold from 7p.m. to 6a.m.
“The curfew will continue till further notice,” a part of the statement said.The declaration of the curfew comes amidst heightened tension occasioned by the conduct of last Saturday’s election in the state. Mr. Amaechi and the All Progressives Congress had boycotted the polls over the failure of INEC to supply result sheets to many polling units especially in the party strongholds.
But the elections continued despite the boycott and the result of both the presidential and National Assembly polls were announced at about 2pm amidst protests and call for cancellation by the APC.

According to her,
“Getting my bra size can be very difficult. It makes it more expensive. I always want to ‘pack’ myself. I wouldn’t want to appear in a movie where I would need to run or walk fast and my boobs would be bouncing. I don’t like it. When you ‘pack’ yourself very well, when anything happens, you are ready. I have to go the extra mile to look for good bras.
“I spend at least N10, 000 on a bra. At times, I get my perfect size when I travel abroad especially in the US. If anybody is going to the US, the only favour that person can do for me is to buy bra for me. It is the only gift that I can appreciate from anybody and it would make me happy,” she lamented.

I received this mail from a male TILB reader and I'm putting it up with the same caption he used, mail unedited. Please read:
I just wanna share this message for the health and life of our people especially our girls. I know it may sound irritant or abusive but this is not a joke. I just wanna let everyone know that almost 40 to 50 something percent of Nigerians that is here in Angola is HIV positive! Many of them may come back to Nigeria and some of our girls will start following and dating many of them without minding of asking the person to go for any test because he is from abroad.
Please girls, beware of whom you follow for the better of all of us, don't fall immediately just because he is back from abroad. Please don't fall the victim. I didn't say you should not trust your man if he is based here in Angola, and I didn't say it's only Nigerians. I know many people may think that am lying or may be is a joke but God knows that I have done my own part and this is what I can do. Thanks.
