Jim Iyke reveals his reasons for not marrying Rita Dominic.

Jim Iyke, has revealed why he did not marry his colleague, Rita Dominic, despite their great onscreen and real-life chemistry.

The 40-year-old actor opened up on his relationship with Rita.
the father-of-one revealed that he had no intention of settling down with the award-winning actress because they were colleagues among other reasons.

He said, “Rita and I met when I was just beginning to embrace fame, and the comforts that came with it. The laurels, the distraction, even the destruction. And Rita is not the kind of woman that hangs around a lot. We were very deep with each other. We still are great friends, though we don’t speak constantly. As a matter of fact, it may surprise you that we haven’t spoken to each other in over two years.

“But when we meet, we are cordial and respectful. There is that deep-rooted thing of a man or woman you shared something with.

“I don’t think Rita at that time was looking at longevity, truthfully. Don’t forget, I was the kid with the crazy Afro, ready t…

Cancer is not only for the adult, children also suffers it.-Dr Anunobi.

Dr Nkechi Anunobi, Chief Consultant Paediatrician, Gwarimpa General Hospital, says early detection of cancer in children is treatable.

“Children also suffer cancer, childhood cancer is treatable if detected early; cancer is not only for the adult, it also occurs in some infant.

“There are different types of cancer in children but the most common is the leukaemia, cancer of the blood.

“ The cause of cancer in children is usually not the same ones that cause cancer in adults, such as smoking or exposure to environmental toxins.

“In most cases, however, childhood cancers come from random mutations in the genes of growing cells.

“Because these changes happen randomly and unpredictably, there is no effective way to prevent them,’’ she said.

Anunobi said leukaemia which are cancers of the bone marrow and blood, are the most common in childhood. She added that leukemias can cause bone and joint pain, fatigue, weakness, pale skin, bleeding or bruising, fever, weight loss and other symptoms.

Oloyede listed the challenges faced by JAMB.

This was due to insufficient space to accommodate interested students in some of the computer-based centres across the nation.

However, the registrar, while inspecting the Blue Ocean Technology centre and Veritas University centre in Abuja on Monday said that he was satisfied with the level of preparedness he noticed.

Mr. Oloyede said the board is aware of the challenges of lack of even spread of facilities in some states. He urged indigenes from such areas to establish a computer-based centre there.

“It is not that we cannot have more candidates but the spread that the candidates chose (is a challenge). For instance, if you are taking candidates that chose Pankshin as their centre, the examination will last for three days so we chose the one on ground. But there are enough spaces in Ibadan, Lagos, Oyo but you can’t move these candidates from Plateau State to these parts that have vacancies. So, its better to pick what a town can accommodate, so we have apologised to the students,” he sa…
