Sanusi: I Said Reduce Number Of Political Appointees Not Civil Servants

                                Sanusi: I Said Reduce Number Of Political Appointees Not Civil Servants

Call it a case of jumping from frying pan to fire, but CBN governor, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi’s latest rebuttal of his controversial statement over the week where he purportedly called for the sack of half the country’s work force, will still land him in hot waters – this time, with the political elite.
Sanusi, while speaking to Channels Television’s correspondent, Chukwuma Onuekwusi, in London at the end of the 13th session of the Honorary International Investors council meeting, said that those calling for his sack “are shying away from the reality of the time”.
Also clearing the air on his statement, Sanusi said he was not talking about the sack of civil servants but a reduction in the size of political appointees who take 70 percent of government revenue leaving a mere 30 percent for the 160 million Nigerians.
According to him “what Nigeria is practising is an American system of government that is very expensive”.

Uche Ezechukwu
Less than 24 hours after it was read in the Enugu High Court in Nigeria’s South-East, the will of late Igbo leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, has been dismissed as strange and unreliable by one of his closest confidants.
The name of Chief Sylvester Debe Odumegwu-Ojukwu, the 56 years old lawyer reported to be Ojukwu’s first son but who has had running battles with other family members since the old man’s death on November 26, 2011, is conspicuously missing from the will. Recognised as Ojukwu’s children in the will are Chukwuemeka Jnr, Mmegha, Okigbo, Ebele, Chineme, Afam, Nwachukwu and one Tenny Haman, who was previously unheard of.
Commenting this morning on the will, Uche Ezechukwu, Ojukwu’s biographer and one-time media aide, said: “Ojukwu’s will has been read and it gave nothing to his sons and almost everything to his widow. Is that not strange?

Late Ijeoma Umumadumere nee Ahamefule (January 2012)
Late Ijeoma Umumadumere nee Ahamefule (January 2012)

 I have lost my sister! I have lost my sister, Ijeoma who was five months pregnant to the unprofessional conduct of a doctor and a quack policy of a clinic called “Garrison Clinic” situated at 10 Udom Street around Garrison roundabout in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria!
Since the heart breaking news of her death, sleep has deserted me as her thoughts and images have beclouded my brain and enveloped my eyes.
“God, you gave me legs and hands to walk, work and eat, and I use them and I have been unreservedly grateful. God, you gave me eyes, brain and mouth to see, think and talk, and it will be a crime against natural law and a sin against you if I do not use them. Therefore; why did you allow death to kill the innocent child that was in my sister’s stomach and still allow my sister to die such a humiliating and excruciating death?”

The heart of 68-year-old Mrs. Adebisi was shattered as she watched the remains of her two daughters, Bukky and Toyin Coker, laid to rest at the Ikoyi Cemetery, Lagos yesterday.
The two sisters, Bukky 25, and Toyin, 30 died on November 21 as a wing of their building collapsed at Jakande Low Cost Estate in Isolo, Lagos.
Although their burial service was solemn and short, the tears and wails it stirred went a long way to show that their untimely death was indeed a great loss to the entire family. The duo were the only surviving children of their parents.
Family, friends, neighbours, community and church members gathered at the Ikoyi Cemetery, looking dejected as voice of the officiating pastor, Mr. Prosper Makafui, of the Winners’ Chapel, Oke-Afa, Isolo branch read the rites. “They have gone.

Goldie and Prezzo Set To Marry Next Year!


The relationship that bloomed during the Big Brother Africa StarGame reality show between Kenya's Prezzo and Nigeria's Goldie is turning out to be one of the most controversial relationships in the celebrities world.

Their fans cannot even tell whether the two are a thing or not since Goldie rubbished the claims that they were a couple on a Nigerian national radio.

As strange as it would turn out a few days down the line Prezzo and his queen Goldie were seen at a dowry exchange ceremony in Nigeria dressed in the same attire looking like husband and wife.

A Nigerian radio station later made the claims that the couple has even married secretly and are just hiding their relationship.

The much mumbo jumbo is definitely spinning the heads of many and there is even more to confuse fans. Apparently according to a radio station in Nigeria, Prezzo flew to Nigeria to propose to Goldie just a day after her departure from Kenya.

He made the official engagement to Goldie in front of her parents and they have set a wedding date for next year February 9. We hope the El Presidante comes out clean and declares his stand.

Michael Essien Returns To Chelsea After Loan Termination With Real Madrid

Michael Essien’s loan spell with Real Madrid has been provisionally terminated to allow the midfielder to return to Chelsea and receive treatment for an injury which has kept him out of action since November 11.

The Ghanaian is expected to respond better to rehabilitation with the west London club who have dealt with his complex injury problems in the past.

Real’s assistant manager, Aitor Karanka, has hinted that Essien’s failure to respond to treatment in Spain is the main reason for his return to Stamford Bridge.
“Essien is not injured but is suffering from an allergic reaction to a drug,” stated Karanka at a press conference.

The 29-year-old has struggled for sustainable fitness in recent years and only managed 14 appearances for Chelsea last season. However, the Liga side are optimistic that his latest problem can be quickly resolved and he can return to Madrid in the New Year.
