Minister Allison Madueke Hospitalized In London For Cancer


Nigeria’s controversial Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Allison-Madueke, has returned to a London hospital to continue treatment for an undisclosed ailment that is believed to be cancer.

Sources say the woman, who has her name in most of the corruption revelation in the NNPC, made the journey last week, and began a daily therapy.

Her one-week absence from Abuja has emboldened those Nigerians who have been calling for her removal to further pressure President Goodluck Jonathan to sack her as Minister of Petroleum Resources. But she's known to be a close friend of the President.

Recently, the French government impounded a private jet that was carrying Jide Omokore, a businessassociate of the Minister, on suspicions that the jet - a Bombardier Global Express XRS - belongs to her.

Investigations show that the jet was purchased by the Bank of Utah Trustee in June 2012 through the same process that was recently used in purchasing private jets for the governors of Rivers and Akwa Ibom States.

Cross River Governor, Liyel Imoke Undergoes Treatment For Chronic Kidney Disease In The US


Last week, there were rumors that Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross River State had passed away. However, SaharaReporters was able to determine that Mr. Imoke is in the US where he is receiving regular dialyses for a renal disease. 

One source disclosed that Mr. Imoke is staying with relatives in the state of Maryland, near Washington, DC. 

“Liyel [Imoke]’s kidneys are in bad condition and he’s undergoing regular dialyses,” said one of our sources. 

Another source said the governor maybe undergoing surgery for kidney transplant since he has remained unreachable in the last 48 hours. 

Governor Imoke has been out of Nigeria for several weeks after he disclosed that he needed to take time off to address a health condition. However, Mr. Imoke did not reveal that his health problem has to do with his kidneys and that he was proceeding to the US to receive monitoring and treatment. 

One of our sources said that the ailing governor “has no immediate plans to return to Calabar,” the capital of Cross River State. 

Mr. Imoke shot into national prominence when he headed a technical committee on the power sector during the administration of President Olusegun Obasanjo. Mr. Obasanjo had tasked the committee with ensuring that Nigerians began to enjoy regular, uninterrupted electricity supply. However, the Imoke committee and the Obasanjo administration squandered close to $16 billion without achieving any improvement in power supply. 

Despite widespread criticism that dogged Mr. Imoke, President Obasanjo and the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) nominated him as the party’s governorship candidate for Cross River State.

40-Year-Old Mad Woman Regains Her Senses After Being Hit By A Car


The story has been told about the miraculous cure of a 40-year-old mentally ill woman who has been simply identified as Olubisi Aina at Sanyo area of Ibadan, Oyo State on Tuesday, 11th December, 2012 after an auto accident.

According to the Tribune, which reported the story, the way and manner in which Olubisi Aina regained her sanity after about a decade or more of insanity is amazing and it could be described as a wonder. Aina had been insane for 10 years or thereabout and paraded herself, most often nakedly, on the Sanyo-Temidire-Agbamu road, her habitation for over a decade.

She usually slept on her back with her face up in drainages or on the main road close to the bridge on Damo River in the area; and come rain or shine, Olubisi was always in her habitat and is well known in the neighbourhood. Perhaps that was her saving grace on Monday, 10th December, 2012 when a car ran over her where she was sleeping at about 9a.m.

Olubisi was quickly rushed to Oore-Ofe Hospital and Maternity Home where her bruised mouth and legs were attended to. However, after being discharged, patron of the hospital, Mr Toyin Adesina, advised that she should have a bath. She was later led by acquaintances to Damo River where she was given new sponge and soap for her bath. As she raised the sponge above her head, she said “Thank you God” in Yoruba Language. Instantly, she regained her sanity and whatever question was posed to her, she answered accurately!

Pastor Attacked After Being Caught Red Handed In Neighbour’s Wife In Bed


A youthful clergyman is nursing injuries at a hospital in Kakamega after he was badly injured by an angry husband who caught him red handed in a compromising manner with his wife.

The two had come from an evening service from the church when the woman, who is the youth leader in the church, invited the pastor to her house for a cup of tea.

The ‘cup of tea’ extended into the late hours of the night and as the husband stays in a nearby town, the good pastor was tempted to spend the night.
Unknown to them, however, word had already reached the husband that his house had been turned into a ‘brothel’.

The husband came home on that night raging with fury and ready to devour whomever he found in his house, even if it was his blood brother.
He arrived at around 11pm and noted that the front door was locked. Luckily, he had spare keys for the back door.

Azazi’s Last Wishes For Nigeria

azazi  Azazis last wishes for Nigeria

The late former National Security Adviser (NSA) to President Goodluck Jonathan, General Andrew Azazi who died in a helicopter crash in Bayelsa on Saturday perhaps had a premonition of his death when he spoke at his last public outing in Lagos, on Thursday, at the fourth Christopher Kolade symposium organised by the Nigeria Leadership Initiatives.

The late Azazi, who was one of the discussants at the event in Muson Centre, said that Nigeria would overcome the dreaded Islamic Sect, Boko Haram, and also confirmed that he saw his June 22 sack coming.

Azazi made case for national security data centre that would serve as a warehouse to monitor the society, noting that such information base must be secured and not made available, for Nigerians to use against each other.

When asked of his legacies as NSA, Azazi said his period in office was too short, stating however, that he released a booklet on building block of national security strategies in addition to putting counter-terrorism measures in place.

Azazi used the opportunity to explain that he saw his sack coming but was not sure of when , stating that his Chief of Defence Staff job was his very last as any other one after was an addition.

“I knew I was going to be fired but did not know the time. However, it was not true that I was sad after the sack. The decision was communicated to me after a security meeting and I took it like that I even talked to press men after,” he said.
Azazi identified corruption, massive theft, inefficient bureaucracy, unemployment; decay infrastructure as some of the challenges affecting leadership in the country.

woman Nigerian woman calls police after they had a fight, says husband is going to blow up plane

A Nigerian man was grabbed by police at Newark Airport on Saturday after police were tipped off that he planned to ‘blow up’ a Delta Airlines flight to Paris.

But authorities now believe that the information, that came from the suspect’s wife, was a false accusation following nothing more than a domestic dispute.

The New York Post reports that Eunice Ukaegbu, 50, rang police on Okieze Ukaegbu, 58, because the couple had just had a big fight and she didn’t want him to leave the country without her.

Eunice (pictured above) told the Post that she just thought she was just acting on her civic duty. ‘He told me he was going to blow up the airplane. I did what an honest citizen would do,’ she said.
The NJ nurse claims her husband ‘is a little secretive.’ Her story is that she first became concerned as Okieze had been acting distantly.

Taribo West Thinks The Present Crop Of Super Eagles Cannot Win The 2013 Nations Cup As The Team Is Just Evolving
Former Nigeria defender, Taribo West has declared that the Super Eagles will not win the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The 1996 Olympic gold winning West, listed a combination of factors that will work against the Eagles. “You know the team is just evolving and when teams are in the re-building process, it is very difficult to win any major trophy,” West said.

“I am saying this because the Super Eagles would need another two years to become a better team. The young players are doing well. They have been able to show great courage and determination since Stephen Keshi took over.

“I have watched them at close quarters and noticed that they are a bunch that wants to succeed at all times. But sincerely speaking I don’t see them as champions at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

“They will do their best in the tournament. They will create enough upsets but they will not win the trophy. Not because they are not good, but for the fact that it will take another two years of consistent hard work to become world beaters. ”

Taribo however assured that with the rebuilding process going on in the national team under Stephen Keshi, the Super Eagles could be on their way to winning the next edition in 2015. ” I am looking forward to see the Super Eagles getting their hands on the trophy in the next edition of the tournament,” he concluded.
