“I distract people, I get distracted” – Nike Oshinowo reveals why she doesn’t go to church

The leggy queen of beauty, Nike Oshinowo, former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, for those who know her too well is a paragon of beauty inwardly and outwardly.
This tall, sexy and ever-radiant woman of essence, who is not just beautiful but also intelligent, has opened up on the reason why she does not go to church despite the fact that the word of God says we shouldn’t forsake the gathering together of holy fellows. The reason behind this, as we are made to know, is because of unnecessary attention her presence often causes whenever she steps into any church. The former beauty queen’s decision was exposed in a TV programme she was featured in not too long ago one part of the secrets she shared about herself is why she does not have a place of worship and the reason why she prefers to commune with God inside the four corners of her house. “Any time I enter a church, people are always quick to notice me and some may not even concentrate on the service anymore as I always become the center …

“I don’t mind marrying a younger lover” – Bimbo Akintola

Although some hitherto eligible babes in Nollywood – Mercy Johnson, Funke Akindele, Stephanie Okereke and few others  have recently waved ‘Bye’ to spinsterhood, Bimbo Akintola remains single with ease.
Although she has been experiencing marriages, but it is in various films and plays where she usually emerges as one of the play makers, as she recently did in Sefi Atta’s The Naming Ceremony staged in London during the Olympic Games. In Hoodrush, produced by Dimeji Ajibola, she is Alhaja who sucks romance from young Shez (O. C. Ukeje), who needs her financial muscle and support to wade through trying times. Despite such romance with the altar, any of Akintola’s fans who thinks she is missing real life marriage had, however,  better purge him/herself of such a thought.  According to her, time ought to have taught any discerning person that the traditional attachment people have to marriage can no more remain the same. Besides, she believes that age is no longer a barrier to marriage as it …

Varsity vs Polytechnic education: The unending HND-BA/BSc dichotomy

…UTME may have worsened situation
WITH no more than 38 per cent of applicants sure to gain admission into the nation’s higher institutions this year, attention of students has started shifting from universities to polytechnics and colleges of education. The grass, however, is not greener on the other side as a large number of students still struggle for limited admission spaces. For these students, the polytechnics and colleges of education are just a “how-for-do” option after unsuccessful attempts at securing university admission. This, coupled with discrimination against non-university degree holders by employers of labour does not bode well for the educational system. While in office as President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo on January 5, 2006, at a meeting with members of the House of Representatives Committee on Education and the then Minister of Education, Mrs. Chinwe Obaji, approved a policy, which reversed the discriminatory policy restricting holders of the Higher National Diploma (…

Kim Ramsey, 44, feels constantly aroused and the slightest movement can trigger a climax. Trains, driving and even housework start the reaction. But unlike women who yearn for the “Yes, yes!” experience, Kim just thinks “Oh no!”
The orgasms leave her in pain, exhausted and unable to have a normal relationship. She said: “Other women wonder how to have an orgasm — I wonder how to stop mine.” Kim was diagnosed with incurable Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder. Doctors blame spinal cysts caused when she fell down stairs ten years ago. Kim, from Hitchin, Herts, but now living in Montclair, New Jersey, US, first had problems after sex with a new boyfriend in 2008. She said: “I had constant orgasms for four days.

Obasanjo blasts Eedris Abdulkarem again: “How could a reasonable man call Nigeria jagajaga?”

For those who thought former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s anger towards Nigerian rapper, Eidris Abdulkarem’s 2004 hit song, “Nigeria jaga jaga”, has subsided and gone with the years goofed because the dust is yet to settle on the matter. The two time president of Nigeria  while speaking at a forum organized by Nigeria Leadership Initiative (NLI)in Lagos on Tuesday, condemned the attitude of our modern day youth towards Nigeria. Still so embittered over Abdulkareem’s hit track, which ruled the airwaves in 2004, Baba, as many would call him affirmed that it shows that the singer doesn’t believe in future of the country. While lamenting the rate of corruption and suffering of the masses, Obasanjo maintained that with such mind set our youths are carried away with so much venom and hatred for their country. According to him, “One of the worst problems Nigeria is facing is disbelief. Nigerians no longer believe in themselves neither do they believe in their country. That takes me back to that…

IBB to Buhari 'I Will Expose Your Dirty Laundry', As Elrufai Lists His Corrupt Past

A few hours after President Goodluck Jonathan and ex-Head of State, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari took a swipe at former  leaders, ex-Military President Ibrahim Babangida fired back.

He asked Dr. Jonathan to learn to accept criticisms and threatened to expose the “holier-than thou-attitude” of Gen. Buhari.

Gen. Babangida, who spoke through Prince Kassim Afegbua, his media adviser, reminded Gen. Buhari that those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

He also advised Dr. Jonathan to look elsewhere, not him, if he is blaming past leaders that are criticising him.

Kassim said: “On President Jonathan, there is nothing wrong in criticism if it is constructive and in the interest of the country. Gen. Babangida is one unique former President who does not criticise a sitting President as a matter of courtesy.

“If President Jonathan is blaming past leaders, he should look elsewhere, certainly not IBB.

“On Gen. Buhari, it is not in IBB’s tradition to take up issues with his colleague former Presi…

Access Bank marketer die of hypertension trying to meet target

A report on Newsacross, claims that in desperate bid to increase its capital base, Access Bank, has resorted to numerous unethical practices. In a desperate bid to remain in business, the bank has set unrealistic targets for their female staff, insisting that they either live up to expectations or lose their jobs. A huge number of female bankers, have either lost their jobs due to non-compliance or kept the jobs by embracing what has now been tagged ‘corporate prostitution’. The report also states that Access Bank, has even gone a step further by buying official cars for some of the ladies, who go about in skimpy revealing dresses to seduce high net-worth ‘customers’ to make deposits. This ‘trade’ has been so mastered by some ladies that they don’t have to fix a date or a venue for the exploitation, as they have ‘ready-made package’ for randy depositors who wish to explore the spontaneity aspect of the business.
According to Newsacross: “One of the female marketers, Solabomi Olugbemi, …

2015: Northern leaders’ opposition to Jonathan, a huge joke – Gulak

Alhaji Ahmad Gulak, a lawyer and politician is the Special Adviser on Political Matters to President Goodluck Jonathan. He can be described as a sharp shooter because he does not mince words on issues bothering on the administration and Nigeria. His depth of knowledge of contemporary Nigerian issues, eloquence, fearlessness and outspokenness, especially on matters that seem to touch on his boss, have singled him out as one of the most visible aides of President Jonathan. In this interview Gulak takes the opponents of the President to task and warned them to desist from distracting Mr. President from concentrating on the job Nigerians elected him to do. He particularly warns former President Olusegun Obasanjo to stop stirring the political waters ahead of the 2015 poll and describes northern leaders’ opposition to Jonathan’s 2015 ambition as the greatest joke of the century. The interview is explosive and irresistible. Excerpts:
WHAT do you make of former President Obasanjo’s alleged endor…
