In a series of tweets on his Twitter page, he wrote;

“The President/Presidency is not meant to be a tourist attraction, a museum of old fossils or a mausoleum of decaying bodies to be viewed by curious dignitaries in a distant foreign land.

It is an act of cruelty to expect this poor man to lead a nation of 180 million.Let him resign, go home and rest!”.

Obituary of a 14-year-old girl, in Lagos.

14-year-old Miss Obiamaka Orakwue, an indigene of Obosi in Anambra state was on July 10th, defiled and murdered at her parents home in the Abule Ado area of Lagos state.

According to Anambra state online Facebook page, Obiamaka was at home for the holidays when she met her untimely death. She was at home alone when some Indian Hemp smoking boys who had asked her out and she refused, scaled her family’s compound fence and gained access to their apartment.

They defiled her and left her in the pool of her own blood. Some residents living in the area who saw the boys as they scaled the fence out of the compound, alerted the mother of the deceased who returned home from her workplace immediately.

She got home to find her 14 year old daughter with blood stains on her v**ina and gasping for air. She rushed her to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The distraught mother, Mrs Orakwue, told friends and family members who were on a condolence visit:

Denied Importing Snakes And Frogs Into Nigeria- Governor Ortom

The Benue State government has denied the reports alleging that the consignments containing snakes intercepted by the Nigeria Customs in Calabar belongs to Governor Samuel Ortom.

It described it as another desperate smear campaign by members of the opposition.

Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Terver Akase Mr Akase said the report published on social media by some opposition elements had once more brought to the fore the sponsored publications to attack the person of the Governor in order to distract him from continued delivery of good governance to the people of the state.

According to him, the original report on the interception of the consignments‎ did not name the owner of the containers.

“That report on the intercepted consignments in Calabar which was skewed and published on facebook by opposition members in Benue State is proof that most of these young men who call themselves opposition on social media are bereft of any idea to help develop their state.

“The cacophony of r…

Four Things To Do When Stranded Accidentally.

Being stranded is tough and no matter how careful you might be, it happens sometimes. Considering our society isn’t exactly friendly to strangers and those in need of help, you need to keep in mind some smart tips for helping yourself when stranded.

Be Calm
It’s only when you are able to remain calm and think, that you can successfully figure a way out of the situation. If you allow yourself lose your composure and start panicking, you might end up making mistakes that will aggravate the situation.

Call for Help
You should immediately call a reliable person you know for help. Explain your situation to them and where you are so they can help you out. If you are accidentally stranded and you don’t have a phone (maybe because your battery ran down, you don’t have airtime to call or you forgot your phone), you need to be a lot wiser about how you ask for help. Due to the nature of our society, there is a lot of distrust for strangers so you are unlikely to get help by just walking up to a r…

The New World's Richest Man- Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has overtaken Bill Gates and is now the richest person in the world, with a fortune topping $90 billion for the first time ever.

When markets opened on Thursday, Bezos had a net worth of $90.6b, putting him $500m ahead of Microsoft founder Bill Gates. Amazon stock opened up 1.6% on Thursday, adding $1.4b to Bezos’ net worth. That was enough to put him ahead of Gates, who was last surpassed on Forbes’ real-time rankings for just two days nearly a year ago by Spanish retail giant Amancio Ortega.

Forbes started tracking billionaires around the globe in 1987. Bezos is now the seventh person to hold the title of the world’s richest person and the third American to top the global ranks besides Gates and Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett.

While Gates and Buffett both appeared on Forbes’ first ranking of America’s 400 Richest people in 1982, Bezos is a newer addition to Forbes’ wealth rankings. He first appeared on the Forbes 400 in 1998, a year after Amazon went pu…
