Woman Names Baby Born During Obama's Trip To Kenya ''Air Force One Barack Obama"


Obamamania may have seized Kenya over the weekend, but for some, the frenzy will now be life-long. A batch of Kenyan newborn babies have been named in honour of the US President, his wife and even his presidential jet, AirForceOne.

According to Lucy Akinyi Okoth, one of the new mothers who spoke to reporters:

"I have decided to call my baby AirForceOne Barack Obama so that we can all remember Obama's visit to Kenya because it is a huge blessing,"

Another, Lucy Atieno, decided to simply call her boy AirForce One.

"I have been told that it is the best aeroplane because it carries a very powerful leader of America who is also a Kenyan," she said.

The two Air Force Ones were among eight children born on Friday night at Kisumu Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Referral Hospital and named after Obama, said nurse Dolphin Akinyi.

"Yesterday from 8.30 pm we had eight deliveries and all the babies are in a very stable condition," she said.

Three girls also each got an Obama-related name. One was named Michelle after the first lady, another was called Malia, after the couple's eldest daughter, while a third was named Malia Sasha after the two Obama girls.

"I could not call my daughter any other name," said Wilkister Anyango, who took both Obama's daughters' names for her child.

So far there are no reports of children being named after Obama's armoured limousine, popularly known as "The Beast".

Kidnappers collect N500k ransom after they killed hostage

Police in Rivers State have arrested a three-man kidnap gang that killed their victim and still collected N500,000 from the family after they had promised to release him.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Chris Ezike, disclosed this at the police headquarters in Port Harcourt, yesterday.

Autopsy shows no evidence of foul play in the death of Bobbi Kristina

Medical examiners performing an autopsy on Bobbi Kristina Brown said Monday their initial findings turned up no obvious cause of death, while experts said the months that have passed since Brown was found face-down in a bathtub are working against authorities now tasked with solving how she died.

According to the Fulton County Medical Examiner, Bobbi Kristina Brown's autopsy shows "no obvious underlying cause of death."  The Medical Examiner goes on to say, "no significant injuries were noted."

The report says there were no previously unknown medical conditions that could have rendered Bobbi Kristina unconscious in the bathtub.

Experts said time is definitely an enemy in Brown's case. Any

Buhari, APC Reps’ meeting ends in deadlock

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara
The meeting President Muhammadu Buhari held with the All Progressives Congress members in the House of Representatives on Monday failed to resolve the leadership crisis in the lower chamber of the National Assembly.
At the end of the meeting which lasted about 20 minutes, members of the two factions in the House stuck to their different positions and interpreted the President’s message to them during the closed-door meeting in a manner that suited their camps.
A mild drama played out as members of the different factions struggled to grant interviews to State House correspondent.
The thrust of their positions was that the President directed them to remain with the party with a view to ensuring that the APC delivers the promised change to Nigerians.
A leader of one of the factions and former Minority Leader, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, later told journalists that the meeting dwelt extensively on party supremacy, adding that before the end of the day, Nigerians would be briefed on the decision reached.
He said, “We are still talking. But I think this is the first time everybody is coming together in a cordial atmosphere. We came together for the first time as one family, with a lot of camaraderie. I think we are almost at the point where all of these would be behind us, hopefully by tomorrow (Tuesday).
“It is not about magic; it is about what should have been done a long time ago. We have finally sat down together and we will resolve it before the night, in a couple of hours.
“The important thing is that the country wants to move ahead. The House wants to move ahead and the party wants to move ahead. Move ahead, we shall.
“Whoever or whatever outside forces that might have been stoking the fire, I think we would put that to an end this evening at the meeting.”
The National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, said the party would have a good news for the nation by Tuesday.
Odigie-Oyegun said a lot was achieved during the brief meeting.
The party chairman said, “Everything is upbeat. You can see that I am smiling. You will be very surprised that a lot was achieved in 20 minutes.
“As the chairman of the party, I can say that there are no discordant tunes. You can see the Speaker of the House standing firmly besides me and I have a feeling that in another three or four hours and by tomorrow, we will have good news for the nation.
“It is never too late to straighten the path.”
The Speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, said he had always remained on the side of the party.
“I have always stood firmly by the party. There has never been a time that I never stood firmly by the party.
“So, like my chairman has explained, we are going into consultations with the party and I am sure that sooner than later, we will have good news for Nigeria.”
The meeting which was held inside the new Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, started at about 5.40pm and ended about 20 minutes after.
Dogara and Gbajabiamila led their different groups to the meeting.
Some members of the APC National Working Committee, led by their chairman, also attended.

Buhari appeals to APC House of rep members to resolve their crisis before tomorrow

President Buhari has appealed to APC members in the House of Representatives to put aside their differences and resolve their issues before tomorrow's plenary session. Speaking at a meeting which he convened earlier today, President Buhari insisted the party members in the lower chamber must respect the decision of the party regarding appointment of principal leaders in the house.

A source at the meeting which lasted for just 20 minutes, told Premium Times that President Buhari asked the members to maintain party discipline and follow their party's directive.

"He said he never wanted to interfere in the affairs of the Legislature, but he’s now forced to do so to maintain party discipline. The president said it is unacceptable for him to be in office under the APC, and the PDP would be allowed to dictate who occupies positions in an administration he heads. Buhari urged all members to look beyond themselves and consider the country and the platform under which they were elected.” the source said
