Story written by Igbokweuche Chidinma


Its five hours to my wedding and I am still two hours away from the occasion. Yes, you heard me right! two hours away and I am not even sure I want to go to the venue at all. You might be wondering why a girl won’t want to be at her wedding, it’s not as if I was forced into the marriage, Nahh, I said yes on my own, no pressure from any one at all. But today, I doubt I want to say those vows with my fiancée. How did I get to this decision? What made me change my mind? Well, its kind of a long story but we still have 4 hours, 50minutes before the wedding.

Senator Uche Chukwumereije to be Buried May 22

Senate President David Mark signing Late Sen. Uche Chukwumerije’s Condolence Register, at the National Assembly in Abuja on Tuesday (21/4/15). Left is the Senate Leader, Sen. Victor Ndoma-Egba. 
Late Senator Uche Chukwumereije will be given a heroic burial on May 22 in his country home Ngodo Isuoche, in Abia State. The burial date was contained in a letter from the family of the late Senator Chukwumereije which was read on the floor of the senate during the plenary. 

The Senate President David Mark described late Senator Chukwumerije as national hero who was a pan- Nigerian in all ramifications. And told the bereaved family at Senator Chukwumerije’s house in Abuja that the late Senator was a nationalist and an unrepentant crusader for the respect of human rights and rule of law. 

May his soul rest in perfect peace.

Beautiful Photos of Oritsefemi's Fiancee & Alleged Hacker, Blessing Rawa

You stay with a man for so long; through his dark and hustling days, you stick with him. You totally respect him only for sh*t to happen and suddenly, without confirmation or warning, he throws you out to be devoured by lions, just like that! That's the story of this pretty lady pictured above with 'Nigerian international superstar' Oritsefemi, guys.

Oritse had this morning uploaded her pic on his IG account as the hacker behind his latest scandal. Drama followed such that the heartbroken lady had to respond denying his accusations in a touching note and asked Oritse to delete his post, which I can confirm he has done now. 

Her name is Blessing Rawa and she is or rather was, Oritsefemi's longtime fiancee (5 years old engagement) unless he puts up the courage to do the right thing and ask for her forgiveness asap. Check out some pretty photos of her I gathered together for your viewing pleasure. B's heart melting reply to Oritse's allegation is also after the cut.

Quick question, ladies - if you were Blessing, would you still stay with Oritsefemi after this messy drama today?

Woman Hires Assasins to Kill Husband

A 57-year-old man, Solomon Fasade, has pleaded with an Iyana-Ipaja Customary Court in Lagos to dissolve his 17-year-old marriage to Abosede.
Mr Fasade, who lives in Ayobo, a Lagos suburb, is accusing his wife of waywardness and threatening his life.
He claimed that she brought another man to their house.
“Two years after I was robbed, I later got to know my wife arranged armed robbers to my house and went as far as asking them to kill me,” he said.
When the court’s President, Mrs Shalewa Banjoko, asked him how he got to know this, he said: “It was a neighbour who told me the insect that eats up a leaf lives on the leaf. I was confused and shocked.”
The defendant, Mrs Fasade (43), said the only reason her husband thinks she is a flirt is because she sells alcoholic drinks.
“I sell alcoholic drinks in front of my husband’s house but I am not an harlot,” she said.
She said she never planned to kill her husband.
“I will never kill him because he has been responsible for the upkeep of the children I had from my previous marriage. If it was my intention, I would have succeeded in doing so because I cook for him and we sleep together on the same bed. I will never do such. I still need my husband because he is a good man,” Mrs Fasade said.
Banjoko ordered the couple to be peaceful and adjourned the matter till Thursday.

Buhari Has No Certificate, Doyin Okupe Insists

The Senior Special Adviser to the President on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe, has said that he stands by his words that the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, is not an electable leader.

Many critics of the All Progressives Congress candidate, including the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, who, in the buildup to the March 28 presidential election, condemned Buhari, had subsequently apologised after he won the election.

But Okupe, on Monday said he would stand by his words that Buhari, who he said had no West African Senior School Certificate, was not eligible to contest for President.

He stated on his official Facebook page:
These are very interesting times in our nation. 
An election has come and gone. A victor has emerged and the loser has conceded. Yet some of our folks are behaving as if we have just gone through a war between two hostile nations. APC agents all over the place are unrelenting in their tirades of abuses
