Yvonne Nelson Speaks Out About Fight With John Dumelo

Ghanaian actors Yvonne Nelson and friend John Dumelo had a very publicized fight on social media.
John who was absent at the a Yvonne Nelson led protest against shabby power supply. John was reported to have defended the president of Ghana and Yvonne called him a kiss ass. The 31-year old took to his Twitter page to call her out and she has finally responded.

The model/actress spoke to a radio station Y107.9FM saying

“I’m sure everyone knows John will forever be my baby boo, love, friend, best friend… charley I can go on and on. Chaley I love John oh, we were not fighting, it was just some little child’s play on social media. So me and John we are good, don’t get worried and don’t get scared. His an amazing guy, I don’t think he is in Ghana now. When he comes I know he is going to say all the nice things about me. Me and John we are homies, we are Fantes.”

Amaechi, The Lion of Niger Delta Politics, Strikes Gold


For a man to clock the golden age of 50 in a country like Nigeria where the life expectancy is much lower surely calls for a celebration. My good friend and political leader, Rivers State Governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, therefore has every reason to roll out the drums as he strikes gold today, Wednesday, May 27, 2015. Silver and gold have I none to give the man of the moment but at least I can pay him a tribute, chronicling how he emerged from humble circumstances to become one of shapers of modern Nigerian politics within his first 50 years of sojourn on earth.

As a close friend who has watched Amaechi from close quarters over a long period of time, I will attempt to expose what makes him tick politically and how he piloted the unseating of a sitting President and a political party that prided itself as the largest in Africa.

In my previous articles, I pointed out that His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi’s tie with the destiny of Rivers State is mysterious and different from that of any other political leader from the State. He is the only political leader so far who has played a key role in shaping the political future of the State who shares the same birthday with the State. Whilst he was born on May 27, 1965, Rivers State was created two years after on May 27, 1967. This, somehow, underscores why his commitment towards the emancipation and development of the State is total and unique.

Another unique thing about this great leader is that he shares the same date with the day on which Nigeria celebrates the Children’s Day. Inspired by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the Federal Government of Nigeria decided in 1964 – a year to the birth of Amaechi – to set aside the May 27 every year as Nigeria’s Children’s Day. On this special day the whole Nation celebrates the Nigerian Child and the Federal Government declares a public holiday for schools across the country. The day is usually marked with fanfare, featuring dances, singing by children in colourful dresses and youth parades considered by many as the highlights of the day.

Buhari Warns: It Is No More Business As Usual

President Muhammadu Buhari has reaffirmed his willingness to work with any leader that emerged from the normal process in the National Assembly, irrespective of what part of the country he comes from.

In a statement released in Abuja, Buhari said that this clarification has become necessary in view of the continued name-dropping in some circles linking his name to some candidates.

“I am prepared to work with any leaders that the House or Senate selects,” Mr. Buhari said in the earlier statement two weeks ago. “It doesn’t matter who the person is or where he or she is from.”
He added: “there is due process for the selection of leaders of the National Assembly, and I will not interfere in that process”.
There has been controversy over the election of new leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives, as the All Progressives Congress which has the majority seats has failed so far to allocate the offices to different regions of the country.

Sources in the party say the delay is apparently because Buhari has refused to approve any formula for the election. Party leaders will not jettison zoning, but the party will consider merit first.

Photos: Baby Born With 12 Toes And 12 Fingers

A baby born with 12 fingers and 12 toes has left doctors baffled – but his Mum says, ‘I quite like the extra fingers’.
There were no signs that there was anything wrong with seven-month-old Jacob Duffy before he was born in November last year.
But mum Rachael Hendry, 24, and dad John Duffy, 28, found that baby Jacob had four extra digits – and an undiagnosed complex syndrome which has left him with a number of defects, including a hole in the heart and eye conditions.
Rachael said: ‘We joked around a bit at first and said that at least he will be good on the piano but obviously we quickly realised that things were a bit more serious.
‘I quite like the extra fingers and I don’t really want the surgeons to chop them off but kids are quite cruel and I could hardly send him to school with them.’
Doctors aim to operate after he is 12 months old – and his parents are now trying to raise cash for a sensory room to aid his development

A Boko Haram survivor currently residing at Mararaba Gurku near Abuja, James Yaduma,tells Leadership how he lost almost all his family members in one fell swoop to the rampaging Boko Haram insurgents who struck his Zha community of Hong Local Government in Adamawa State about 7 months ago.

Yaduma, who was a farmer before he was sent packing from his village, has since started a new vocation in his new found abode to keep body and soul together by scooping sand in a nearby stream and disposing it to builders of houses as the place is a beehive of construction.

In his narration of what he suffered, Yaduma said life for him will never be the same since the gory and unfortunate incidence occurred, having witnessed how his aged father, mother and other relatives were burnt alive by Boko Haram insurgents.

“We have to get these kinds of stories out to young people — this is not a recreational drug,” she said.

PDP Moves Against Femi Fani-Kayode


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has ordered the immediate probe of one of its trouble-shooting members, Femi Fani-Kayode, for criticising the party’s leadership and calling for its resignation.

The party said Fani-Kayode should be sanctioned for launching a media war against its leadership.

Fani-Kayode, who was the spokesperson for President Goodluck Jonathan’s presidential campaign team, on Tuesday accused two unnamed members of the party’s National Working Committee of working for the opposition All Progressives Congress.

In a dramatic response on Wednesday, the party ordered the PDP in Osun State, Mr. Fani-Kayode’s home state, to immediately investigate and punish the former minister.

In a letter signed by its National Secretary, Wale Oladipo, the party mandated the PDP in Osun to first establish whether Mr. Fani-Kayode has been a “registered and financial member”.

Buhari’s Close Men, Ex-Governors set to Fight Bola Tinubu


According to Punch report, a gigantic test of wills is rocking the All Progressives Congress just days to the official inauguration of President-elect Mohammadu Buhari as Nigeria’s substantive President.

Impeccable sources within the party said that some ex-governors, Buhari’s associates and mutinous party men from the South-West are trying to whittle down the influence that the national leader of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will have on the incoming government in Abuja and across Nigeria.

Tinubu, the party’s undisputed leader, is widely feted as the force behind the
merger of all the parties in the country which led to the emergence of APC as Nigeria’s major party.

On many occasions, Buhari, who defeated Goodluck Jonathan in the March 28 presidential elections, has also acknowledged the efforts of Asiwaju Tinubu, fondly referred to as Jagaban by his admirers.

Sources within the party told Punch that the relationship between the duo might have become strained in recent times as forces within the party are bent on making Buhari to see Tinubu in another light.

JONATHAN: The Sad Story Of How He Was Used & Dumped


“False friends are like our shadow, keeping close to us while we walk in the sunshine, but leaving us the instant we cross into the shade” - Christian Nestell Bovee, a famous New York writer.

President Goodluck Jonathan told the world that his friends had deserted him. He made it known that he was not fazed by their action, adding that he expected more friends and associates to abandon him because he lost the March 28 presidential election to the candidate of the APC, Muhammadu Buhari.

The President spoke at a special thanksgiving organised in his honour at the Cathedral Church of Advent, Life Camp in Abuja. He must not have been oblivious of the popular saying that ‘failure is an orphan.’ Indeed, even in politics, success comes with making more friends.
President Jonathan is seen as someone who has so much confidence in his aides, friends and associates. As a perceived gentleman, building trust in someone does not take a long time for him. But this quality, unfortunately as analysed in several quarters, contributed to his losing the just held election. 

As more and more revelations continue to pour in on why the Peoples Democratic Party performed poorly in the elections, both at the national and state levels, the picture is also becoming clearer that a lot of intrigues, mud-slinging, betrayals and lack of unity worked against the party and Jonathan as a candidate. In the build-up to the elections, one thing which is difficult to explain is whether the President saw all these antics from his close associates coming.

Some of them even allegedly worked for the opposition, according to observers. Today, they have begun to keep some distance when he has yet to leave office. Unfortunately, they did not know that the election had been lost and won long ago, since the successful merger between the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), All Nigeria Peoples Party and a section of the All progressives Grand Alliance.

PDP will be buried if I resign-Mu’azu

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu,on Sunday stated that he would not resign despite the threat of some members to form a faction of the party.
Speaking through his Special Adviser on Media, Mr. Tony Amadi ,he told Punch

“Let them go and form their parallel party and let us see where they are going to get their votes from.The only reason Mu’azu doesn’t want to resign is because if he does, those who want the PDP buried will succeed.Why are these people trying to create problems for themselves and the outgoing President?
The President has said let us sheathe our swords; that is why we have not said anything for the past one week and we obeyed the President. He is our leader; why are they doing this?I thought that we have finished elections, we have got a President-elect and we are going to hand over to the President-elect. Why are they taking us back?

Nigerian Visa Sells for Just One Dollar in Many Countries


While many Nigerians may have known visa fees of different European and American countries, not many take interest in what the country charges other nationals for the document.

But the fact is that the Nigerian Immigration Service has a long list of the fees on its website, indicating clearly the differences in terms of countries, the visa type and number of entries.

If what the NIS displays on the website is anything to go by, nationals of
Mauritania, Monaco, Morroco, New Zealand, Panama, Uruguay, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Burma, Dominican, Chile and Colombia are charged between N100 and N 200 for a single-entry Nigerian visa. For those applying for multiple entries, the fee is multiplied by the number of entries they are seeking.

Weighed against the current exchange rate, it implies that a Nigerian visa is still going for half a dollar or just one dollar.

Applicants from the United States are charged the highest. They pay N14,000 for either a single or multiple-entry visa.

Russia and other former members of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics are next to the US, and a visa application from the region attracts N10,500.

A traveller from the United Kingdom, who is applying for a single-entry Nigerian visa, pays N9,700, whereas a multiple-visa applicant is charged N16,200.
