Bianca Ojukwu sues Femi Fani Kayode for defamation

Bianca Ojukwu is suing Femi Fani Kayode for defamation by claiming they had an intimate relationship while she was still a spinster. Here is a little summary; 

Following the deportation of some Igbos from Lagos some weeks back, Femi Fani Kayode made some comments which made some people accuse him of being tribalistic. Reacting to these allegations, he claimed he has had intimate relationship with 2 Igbo women, one of which was Bianca (when she was a spinster). Being a Yoruba man, he believed this proved he was not tribalistic else he would not have dated from another tribe.
  In a recent Thisday publication, Bianca Ojukwu's lawyers wrote to Femi Fani Kayode asking him to apologize and also retract the statement he made a few weeks ago about dating her some years back or face a lawsuit.  

Letter from Bianca's lawyers below and Femi's response after the cut...

 “We have been briefed and our services retained by Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu, Nigeria’s Ambassador to Spain to demand from you an unreserved apology and a retraction of a false and malicious statement, which you published online and also caused to be published in the Leadership Newspaper of August 16, 2013.

Pastor J of God's House speaks on the Ese and Pst Biodun's adultery saga

Pst Biodun of COZA
Ese - the lady who accused Pst Biodun
of having sex with her for 7 days

For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.”
Isaiah 9:16 . Let them alone: they be leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. Matt 15:14

I was going to be silent on this sad, pathetic but true (in many shades) allegation against Pastor B and his popular and trendy ministry. My silence was borne out of respect for the kingdom of God and things that pertain to God. But all this changed when I heard the horrific tales of people who had been through the mess of this blind man, and the fact that he had no moral motivation to deny or accept the allegation; all he showed on Sunday was a demented swagger and perverse talk.

My sole purpose in writing this piece is to open the eyes of the world and believers to the hypocrisy and nonsense behind the pulpit, and to plea that these wolves and blind men stop deflating the faith of people who Christ died for. I am a Pastor, a full time minister at that, and I shall not sit back while
the name of my God, the ministry, and the works of other shepherds is brought to disrepute by the activities, action and inaction of a few blind men behind the pulpit.

" I Have A Dream" - Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King
Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the day MLK made the famous 'I Have A Dream' speech. Large crowd along with President Obama, Ex- presidents, celebrities gathered at the Lincoln Memorial square to honour this great man. Read MLK's speech he delivered 50 years ago and and Obama' s complete speech  at the 50th anniverary event below;

I HAVE A DREAM - Martin Luther King

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.
But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds."
But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice.
We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children.

Sources claim it is Michael who wants to end the union and not Catherine with a friend of Catherine quoted as saying 

'‘Michael has gotten to be a mean old man. He finds fault in her all the time, it is an ugly atmosphere. He is grouchy and hard to live with. They have been arguing for years.’ 

For now, there is no plan of a divorce but if they eventually divorce, Catherine has a pre-nuptial agreement which gives her £960,000 for every year of marriage. She will also be advised to hang on to several of their eight homes.

Michael and Catherine got married in 2000 and have two children together, Dylan, 13, and Carys, 10.

UNFORTUNATE: Nigeria’s first indigenous car: 16 years after, designer, Izuogu yet to get FG grant

Sixteen years ago, history was made when an engineer, politician and researcher, Dr. Ezekiel Izuogu, invented the first Nigerian car after eight years or research.The invention was celebrated with, at least 20 foreign ambassadors and over 50,000 other dignitaries, including Gen. Oladipo Diya (rtd.), who represented the then Head of State, the late Gen. Sani Abacha, when it was unveiled in Owerri, Imo State.
To compensate him for a commendable effort, the Federal Government promised to motivate him with N235 million after the panel of inquiry gave the car a clean bill of health, certifying it road-worthy. However, 16 years down the line, Izuogu, lamented that he was yet to get a dime from the Federal Government approval, even when the amount was a paltry sum compared to N1.5 billion government gave a foreign car manufacturing company then.
Narrating his frustrating and efforts of his to enlist Nigeria as industrial nation, Izuogu disclosed that he even had to reject a huge offer from a country that promised him $400 million if he could transfer the technology or design to them.

Boy takes flight in tyre compartment of Arik Air plane

Disbelief trails the fact that a young boy successfully boarded a flight on an Arik Air plane through the tyre compartment of an Aril Air air plane  travelling from Benin to Lagos.  When apprehended in Lagos, the young boy was said to have boarded thinking the plane was bound for a trip over seas and not Lagos. 

Arik Air through their spokesman Banji Ola narrated what happened below;

The management of Arik Air has expressed shock over the incident wondering how the teenager beat the Aviation Security personnel at the Benin Airport to get to the runway. 

The pilot of Arik Air flight W3 544, departing Benin Airport for Lagos at 9.00am today 24th August, 2013 reported to the control tower the presence of a strange boy in the bush about 200 – 300 meters at the end of runway 23. The control tower told the Captain that they were sending security men to the place to arrest the boy. As the captain was making his final turn, preparatory for take-off, a cabin crew called his attention to the information by some of the passengers that they saw a boy running towards the airplane.

Prison Break Actor, Wentworth Miller comes out publicly

There has always being rumours that the star was gay but he never publicly admitted it until recently. He was invited to the Russian film festival but had to decline due to the series of anti-gay laws the country passed. 

Russian President Vladimir Putin in July signed a law banning the adoption of Russian-born children by gay couples, a bill that classified 'homosexual propaganda' as pornography and provides for fines and arrest for those making it accessible to minors and a law that bans public gay pride events in Moscow for the next 100 years.

Wentworth wrote:

 Thank you for your kind invitation. As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes. However, as a gay man, I must decline.I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government. The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.
Perhaps, when and if circumstances improve, I'll be free to make a different choice.Until then.

Actor Lee may have committed suicide due to 'Yoruba' religion

All my life, i have never known there was a religion called Yorùbá but according to this news report by uk.eonline,actor, Lee Thompson Young may have taken his own life after he started practising it. Anyone know  about this African religion that makes people want to kill themselves? Let us know!

 The Rizzoli & Isles star, who was 29 at the time of his death, "didn't drink or party," says a source, adding,  "He was the opposite. Lee loved to travel and was always the first to tell everyone to take a breath and enjoy the beauty of life." He was always "gentle and unassuming," despite his early success, and didn't have the typical "look-at-me" attitude.

That said, those close to Young noticed things "really changed" a few years ago when he began practicing Yorùbá, an Africa-based religion which has a saying, "iku ya j'esin",meaning  "death is preferable to ignominy." Some have questioned whether this means that suicide is an acceptable way to preserve personal or family honor in the face of public shame.

ASUU STRIKE UPDATE:We can’t meet ASUU’s N92bn demand – FG

The negotiation between the Federal Government and members of the ASUU ended in a deadlock as both parties rescheduled the meeting to Monday next week.
The Governor of Benue State who also doubles as the Chief Mediator on behalf of Federal Government, Dr. Gabriel Suswam, told journalists after a marathon meeting on Tuesday that “tremendous progress” has been made in the negotiations, particularly on the NEEDs Assessment and Earned Allowance issues raised by ASUU.
However, the hopes of an early resolution seem to be dampened by the position of the Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, who has been quoted as saying: “At present, ASUU wants the Federal Government to pay N92bn in extra allowances, when the resources are not there, and when we are working to integrate past increases in pensions. We need to make choices in this country as we are getting to the stage where recurrent expenditures take the bulk of our resources and people get paid but can do no work".

Three-kilometer auditorium: Angry Nigerians blast Adeboye, say N1billion per person donation is criminal

Controversies have continued to trail the recent plans by the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye to erect a new auditorium, stretching three kilometres in length and breadth at the camp ground, along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, which is expected to run into billions of naira.
Adeboye has been at the receiving end of harsh criticisms by angry Nigerians over what they tagged, criminality on the ongoing move to embark on the new project.
It would be recalled that Daddy G.O, as his teeming followers would call him, had at the just concluded 61st annual convention announced the church’s plans to erect a new auditorium stretching three kilometres in length and breadth at the camp ground, along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The cleric during the programme appealed for donations for the new auditorium, which would accommodate over one million people when completed.
“We need N1 billion from ten people. If you are one of them, please see my personal Secretary after we finish today,” Mr. Adeboye told the congregation.
“We also need N100 million from those who can afford it, if you are in that category. Please see my personal Secretary as well.

Kim Kardashian's mother replies President Obama on the Kim and Kanye Diss!

President Obama
President Obama recently made a statement about Kim and her Boo Kanye which the Kardashian clan did not think was fair. Kim's mother and voltron, Kris Jenner quickly responded. Read both comments below;

OBAMA: “The American Dream involved some pretty basic stuff. A good job where you felt some security. A good education… People felt if they worked hard they could get there… I don’t think people went around saying to themselves, ‘I need to have a 10,000-square-foot house’… I think, there has also been a shift in culture. We weren’t exposed to the things we didn’t have in the same way that kids these days are. There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.”
Kris Jenner

KRIS: 'I find it so odd that he's picking on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Well, Kanye West, first of all, doesn't go on vacation. Ever,' And Kim Kardashian is the hardest-working young lady in the world. She never sleeps, she never stops, she never slows down and works so hard for what she's got,'But, I wasn't aware that you could only set the bar so high and that we could only dream so big,'

'I bet the President has some friends with 10,000 square foot houses and he probably wouldn’t mind going over there when asking them to have a party for campaigning for dollars to run for president,' 
Kanye & Kim
