2Baba Signs Endorsement Deal With GLO




Nigerian hip hop legend and Hypertek boss, Tuface Idibia popularly known as 2Baba has joined the likes of Olamide and Timaya as an ambassador for Nigerian Telecommunication company, Globacom.

Ibe Kachikwu- I Will Resign If Nigeria Continues To Import Fuel By 2019

Ibe Kachikwu- I Will Resign If Nigeria Continues To Import Fuel By 2019



While speaking to Stephen Sackur of BBC’s Hardtalk, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu said that he will resign if Nigeria continues to import fuel by 2019.
“I have delivered on all that I have promised when I came into office. First, I took Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and made it a profit-making organisation. This is the first time in history, I reshaped the organisation.
I removed cash call deficits of over $6bn and renegotiated it. Everything that I have promised since coming into office, I have delivered. I will deliver on the refineries and I’m committed to it.
I will also deliver a future for oil that makes sense for Nigeria. Bear in mind one has been there for one and a half years, the president has been there for two years; I can’t pretend that we’re going to solve in one day all the problems that happened in Nigeria in the past,” he said.
“Our target is 2019…don’t worry, I put the date, I’ll work it,” Kachikwu said, when asked when Nigeria will attain self-sufficiency in crude oil refining.

Sackur then said: “And if you don’t achieve it, you’ll walk?” Kachikwu replied: “Yes, of course, that is the reason why you are in government.”

Trump Slaps Off President Trump’s Hand Publicly During Israeli visit



For the US first couple’s visit to Israel, there was an unexpected awkward moment between Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump.

Walking down the red carpet at Ben Gurion Airport with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara, President Trump extended his hand to the First Lady, who promptly slapped it away in full view of the cameras.

As expected, Twitter could not get enough of their body language or the fact that the US President was walking side by side with the Israeli first couple, leaving Melania a step behind.

Unlawful Detention- James Ibori Gets £1 As Damages From UK

Unlawful Detention- James Ibori Gets £1 As Damages From UK



A London High Court has awarded £1 as damages to be paid to former Delta State governor and convicted money launderer James Ibori over his claim of unlawful detention by British Home Secretary Amber Rudd, UK Evening Standard reports.

Justice Cheema-Grubb ruled that Ibori was unlawfully held for one day, 18 hours and 10 minutes between December 20 and 21 last year.

Ibori had demanded £4,000 as damages.

“There is no compensatory loss to Mr Ibori and I fix nominal damages at £1,” the judge said.
Ibori was jailed for fraud totalling nearly £50m in April 2012.

Ibori who was due to be released on December 20, 2016, was detained by the Home Office after indicating that there was no intention to deport Ibori to Nigeria until he handed over at least £57m “proceeds of crime”.
High Court Justice May ordered Ibori to be freed on conditions, describing the attempts to detain as “quite extraordinary”.

He was subsequently released and he returned to Nigeria in February 2017.

Marriage Is Not For This Generation- 9ice

Marriage Is Not For This Generation- 9ice


Nigerian indigenous singer, 9ice after advising Nigerian young men on marriage, went further to also state that real marriages can’t be truly found amongst our present generation as they are not as submissive as they should be.

He also talked about the news, or rather rumour that stated he is married. The Hip hip artiste said he is not married, has never remarried, and he is presently single, he is not ready to mingle.
The singer went further to say that people do not understand marriage in this generation, hence his statement that marriage is not for this generation.

According to 9ice, the lack of submissiveness in the present generation will not make it possible for them to stay married. With this statement, it is okay to conclude that 9ice sees marriage in a very traditional way and he believes that there is a miscommunication between genders as guys want the traditional definition of marriage while ladies have created a 21st century definition, so to him, there has to a new definition that accommodates the needs of the couple. They should create a definition that they can agree upon and work with rather than coming together under different concept and then spend less than a year together. The marriage should be one based on love rather than traditional or family expectations.

To the singer whose yard stick for marriage is his parents, he’s looking for a woman that will kneel to serve him his meal, and he knows that the women in this generation will not do that due to “civilization” and all they have been exposed to.

So the bottom line for 9ice is; where marriage is concerned, this generation is lost and it is either they retrace their steps or find a new step to agree on and cohesively walk together.

The house-help of late actress, Moji Olaiya, Mrs. Keji, has revealed what may have caused her boss’ death.

Mrs. Keji who claimed she was a very close friend of the late actress, said that her boss may have been spiritually attacked.



She said in the last three days before she died, the 42-year-old thespian had placed several calls from her base in Canada to complain of “being uncomfortable.”

She told reporters in Lagos, “Her baby was born premature— her EDD was for May 2017 but complications arose that necessitated that she be induced to save the baby’s life as well as hers.

But since the delivery in March, her health had not been exactly perfect.”

She said that around 10p.m. Canadian time (3a.m. Nigerian time) Moji went into a crisis.
Mrs Keji, who has been the actress’ housekeeper, added, “Her blood pressure shot up and she became unconscious.

“An ambulance was called to transport her to the hospital,but her case worsened and she gave up the ghost before they could make it to the hospital.” .

Anne-Marie Imafidon Decorated With MBE At Buckingham Palace





Nigeria’s Miss Anne-Marie Osawemwemze Imafidon has been decorated by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, with the prestigious honour of Member of the Most Excellent British Empire (MBE) for her services to young women with specialty in Sciences, Technology, Engineering and
Mathematics (STEM).. The event happened this evening nd has been announced on the Royal Family official Twitter handle few days ago.

."Anne-Marie Imafidon, @stemettes founder, has been awarded an #MBE for
her work inspiring the next generation of women into STEM subjects.

6:50 AM - 19 May 2017 - "The Royal Family
@RoyalFamily"


She was accompanied to the event by her family dubbed "Britain's Most Brilliant family" to have been invited  to Buckingham Palace in central London which is the London residence of the Queen of England.

With her achievement today, she becomes the youngest scientist ever to get this award, as most young people get the Queen's honour for sports.


The eldest daughter of world renowned Professor Chris and Ann Imafidon whose family has been dubbed the Brainiest Family in Europe, Anne-Marie holds the record of being one of the youngest managers of Fortune 100 top companies and later became an assistant Vice President with German's top bank, Deutsche bank. In school, due to participation in the www.ExcellenceinEduc­ation.org.uk programme, she set a new record to become the youngest girl to ever pass two High school (GCSE)
examinations — for Mathematics and Information Technology and A-level computing at the age of 11 in Britain.

Due to her high exceptional brilliance, she received a British Scholarship to study Mathematics at the John Hopkins University at the age of 13 in 2003. Two years later, she commenced a degree at Oxford University after which she enrolled for her Masters degree setting another record of the youngest Masters degree holder from the Ivy
league university.

Dr Imafidon, who is a multi-linguist, speaks six languages and has worked with Goldman Sachs, Hewlett-Packard, Deutsche Bank, and Lehman Brothers. In 2013, she founded Stemettes, a social enterprise which inspires the next generation of women into pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics with an objective to break barriers women who pursue a career in the field face.

Stemettes, which grants awards to young women, have programs workshops and events designed to introduce young women to STEM careers, concepts, and role models, have attracted over 7000 young women from across the UK, Ireland and Europe.

The 27 year old said her achievements was as a result of her unique training administered by her parents.

“I’m ecstatic beyond words as this is divine and simply God-sent. Nobody would have expected this when my journey started with the mathematical and science games at Excellence in Education (EIE)
programme a few years ago. This programme equipped me with the unique pedagogical techniques which makes learning fun and it is radically different from conventional school. It helps anyone tackle educational and even professional challenges with ease,.” She said.

Dr Imafidon’s rather unique achievements at a young age has stood herout as a person to watch out for by the British press; she was named on Evening Standard’s recent list of ’25 under 25s’ and a Guardian ‘Top 10 women in tech you need to know’ as well as being the UK IT Industry & British Computer Society’s Young IT Professional of the Year in 2013.

Her father, an eminent adviser to European, and American governments, presidents and monarchs, Professor Chris Imafidon, known as the patriarch of Britain's brainiest family, said he received the news of this honour with shock, and that the celebrations for this award will last a year and ripple over a lifetime.

“Like every parent would feel, we are still in shock. This is simply God-orchestrated. I, personally never believed that her young career would accelerate to this historic height. This is beyond belief,” he said in a chat.


The Imafidon family definitely have the achievers blood running in their DNA as not only Anne-Marie dominates their achievements wall of fame. All five children have set new records in scholarships, sports and music. For example, Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon's sister, Christiana,
24, is the youngest student to ever study at an undergraduate institution at any British university at 11; another sister, Samantha, 17, having passed two rigorous high school-level mathematics and
statistics exams at the age of six, while the twins, Peter and Paul, made British history as the youngest students to ever enter high school when they became the youngest to ever pass the University of
Cambridge’s advanced mathematics exam, setting world records by passing the A/AS-level math papers.

However, the head of the family, world renowned professor Chris Imafidon argues that every child is a genius if provided with the appropriate tools, technology, techniques and methodology.

With the Imafidon family setting across the world, he advised parents to change their methods of education in an obvious changing world in order to explore every child’s gifts and talents. Every parent should embrace the re-engineered ExcellenceinEducatio­n.org.uk approach.

“The same God has given every child gifts and talents. We parents must join the ExcellenceinEducatio­n.org.uk in developing such massive potential. As stated in my forthcoming book entitled "The Genius in You", we can't use the old methodology of learning. Schools and
society must wake to the re-engineered system of education that understands that there is a genius in every child and greatness in every adult. This genius is irrespective of ethnicity, gender,
nationality, postcode, class or creed. So every family can equal or exceed our achievements.”

Prof. Imafidon revealed that Anne-Marie will be visiting Nigeria very soon to also offer Nigeria young minds interested in pursuing a career in STEM an opportunity to realize their dreams.

“Our grandparents taught us that charity begins at home. We are very enthusiastic about Africa and must contribute our quota to the training and education of young minds. We want to launch a bigger program in Africa, particularly Nigeria and work with the corporate community, industry leaders so that we can deploy the re-engineered learning methodology of www.ExcellenceinEduc­ation.org.uk program. We know that with these programs young Nigerians can equal or exceed our record-breaking achievement. The next generation of Africans have no choice but excel because there is a genius in everyone.”

On Wednesday, the minister disclosed that a decision on who would sign the document between Osinbajo and his principal, President Muhammadu Buhari would be taken at the appropriate time.
However, Akande had stated that Osinbajo will sign the document once he is satisfied with what was transmitted back to the Executive from the National Assembly.

Governor Ambode Permanently Bans VIOs From Lagos Roads

Governor Ambode Permanently Bans VIOs From Lagos Roads



Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode on Tuesday put the uncertainty concerning the absence of Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIO) on Lagos roads to rest once and for all, stating categorically that he has asked them to stay off the roads permanently.

Governor Ambode, who said this at the commissioning of Pedestrian Bridges, Laybys and Slip Road at Ojodu Berger, also urged the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) to limit its operations to the fringes and highways and stay clear from the main streets of the State.

He said the decisions were in line with his administration’s resolve to ensure free flow of traffic across the State, noting that their activities were contributing to traffic congestion on Lagos roads.
The Governor said, “Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, let me use this opportunity to reiterate that Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIO) have been asked to stay off our roads permanently.

“We also advice the Federal Road Safety Corps to stay on the fringes and highways and not on the main streets of Lagos. It has become evident that these agencies contribute to the traffic challenges on our roads.”

He said as an alternative, the State Government would employ technology to track and monitor vehicle registration and MOT certifications and de-emphasise impoundment of vehicles on the roads.
Speaking on the interventions in Ojodu Berger, Governor Ambode said his administration at inception, identified the axis as one of the major traffic flashpoints that required urgent attention, adding that the decision was informed by the strategic importance of this axis being a major gateway into the State.

Waking up today Saturday 13th may 2017, to see a video posted without  due consultations by ‘some’ foundation.
I wondered why people love cheap publicity. How can someone who left the hospital on Friday and return to the hospital be abandoned as she FALSELY claimed.
Nevertheless, I have consulted and instructed my lawyer to serve them with immediate effect for defamation of character and other of charges associated to this act(etc. Using the name of a child for soliciting for money illegally).

Mgbechi has however said that Tonto verbally abused and harassed her on several occasions.
Throughout the period I worked for Tonto, she always assaulted me verbally. At the slightest opportunity, she would rain abuses on me and tell that she would scatter me if I wasn’t careful. I lived in that house with her despite all the constant harassment because of her son, King. I loved the boy like my own child and it was because of him that I stayed long with her.
She has never given me money to give to my children. The only thing she did was to give me some of the clothes she wanted to distribute to motherless babies homes to give to my children.
Tonto said that she had taken me to 15 countries, let her show the world my passport and the copy of the visas she claimed to had obtained for me. The only place we went outside Nigeria together was Ghana and it was her husband, Churchill, that took us there.
The video she posted online was not the complete version. All the things I said, they did not show it. She only showed where she and others were intimidating me; they never allowed me to talk. Let her tell the world the truth because I worked for her diligently and had never conspired with anyone to tarnish her image,” she said.
 Watch below!
DISCLAIMER! DISCLAIMER!! DISCLAIMER!!! This is to inform the general public about the recently uploaded video about the nanny of my beloved dear son who in a video said I abandoned her at the hospital leaving her to fend for herself. It was so far-off from the truth. She was sadly discharged from her duties 2months ago, after the realization that she wasn't fit enough for the job as she was always suffering from one illness or another which I. Have spent Thousands treating. So I paid her off and she went back to her base, I suddenly saw her about a week ago believing she came to say hello and leave, but begged to be taken back instead. It was obvious that my son missed her, which led me to permit her to stay for a few days. To my suprise, she took ill again and I asked that she should be taken to the hospital, which I normally do whenever she fall sick and her on-Call Personal doctor provided By Me Isnt around. She was rushed to the hospital on Thursday 11th may 2017, and discharged on Friday 12th may 2017, telling me that she is better now. To my greatest surprise, I got a call from one of my domestic staff that she has gone to the hospital again.

Iara Oshiomhole,234 Others Receive Nigerian Citizenship

Iara Oshiomhole,234 Others Receive Nigerian Citizenship




A total of 335 foreign nationals were on Tuesday in Abuja granted citizenship by the Federal Government after statutory clearance and due diligence by the relevant security agencies.‎

The Minister of Interior, retired Lt.-Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau,‎ who presented the certificates of citizenship to the foreigners, charged them to be good ambassadors of Nigeria.
Iara Oshiomhole, wife of former Governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole‎, who is from Cape Verde, was one of the recipients.

Dambazau in his remarks said that the 335 applications were approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) in January, out of the over 500 foreigners that applied.

He explained that 245 of the foreigners approved were granted Citizenship by‎ Naturalisation while 90 were by Registration, mainly foreign women married to Nigerians.

“Let me say that application for the Citizenship of Nigeria which can be by Naturalisation or Registration is provided for in Chapter 3, Sections 26 and 27 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,’’ the minister explained.

The minister said that the approval was part of government’s effort on the “Ease of doing business in Nigeria” and boosting Nigeria’s image in line with international best practice.

He tasked the “new Nigerian citizens” to be of good conduct, respect the rights and customs of their communities and contribute to the development of Nigeria.

Damabazau said the last time such ceremony was conducted was in December, 2013 and pledged to ensure its sustenance on an annual basis for proper scrutiny.

Dr Lamabert Shumbusho, from Rwanda, who responded on behalf of the recipients, thanked the Federal Government and pledged their loyalty and commitment to the development of Nigeria.
Other recipients include nationals from Lebanon, Syria, Pakistan, China and some African countries, most of whom are business moguls who have been operating in Nigeria for years.

The Ministry of Interior and the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) are charged with the responsibility of processing applications for Naturalisation from foreign nationals who have stayed/lived in Nigeria for a minimum of 15 years and those by Registration who are mainly married to Nigerians.
  6 Things You Should Know About Your Cholesterol Level

6 Things You Should Know About Your Cholesterol Level



 You’ll be surprised how little people know about something as important as their cholesterol level. We share 6 things you should know about your cholesterol level.
Your Body Actually Needs Cholesterol
Cholesterol actually has health benefits which your body needs. Cholesterol helps to make key hormones, synthesizes vitamin D, is an essential component of cell membranes and is needed for brain and nerve function. The problem, however, is when the level of cholesterol in the body is excessively high.
There’s Bad Cholesterol and Good Cholesterol
Cholesterol is carried through the body by high-density lipoproteins (HDL) and low-density lipoproteins (LDL). LDL is considered the “bad” cholesterol because it deposits plaque in your arteries; HDL is considered the “good” cholesterol because it transports bad cholesterol from your batteries back to your liver, where it is removed from the body. Typically, a high LDL cholesterol poses a greater risk of heart disease, while high HDL is protective against heart disease.
Genetics and Diet Can Cause High Cholesterol Levels
High cholesterol can be caused by your diet and it can also be inherited. Some people inherit genes that cause their bodies to make too much LDL, and eating foods that are high in saturated and trans fat (like cheese, red meat, fried foods etc.) can also raise LDL.
Physical Activity
Remember the saying, “Your body has so many joints, because it was made to move”? There’s no truer saying. Aside keeping you fit, physical activity helps boost HDL and flush bad LDL out of your system.
Eat Some Nuts
Nuts and olives are the two main foods believed to contain nutrients that help to stop LDL from damaging arterial walls.
Regular Checks
It’s recommended that everyone age 20 years old and older should have their cholesterol level measured at least one every five years.

5 Signs Of Low Blood Sugar

5 Signs Of Low Blood Sugar


Sugar is a chemical substance that our body requires for proper function. However, you are at risk if the sugar content in your body is too high or too low. Hence, it has to be balanced. Hypoglycemia or low blood sugar can cause both short and long-term complications. In line with this, we discuss the warning signs of low blood sugar.
Serious hunger
If you've already eaten but still not satisfied, or if you suddenly, feel as if you're starving, your body is telling you that it needs more sugar.
Restless nights
You are experiencing sleepless nights and unable to sleep. It may be a sign that your blood sugar is low. You can eat a sugar-free snack before bed so that it can reduce the sleep disruption.
Excessive sweating
If you are sweating excessively without warning, regardless of how warm or cold the temperature may be, you need to take more sugar.
Fatigue
Tiredness and low energy are serious signs that your blood sugar level is low. This is because your body doesn’t have enough energy in the form of sugar to perform.
Vision issues
If your vision suddenly becomes unclear, a decline in blood sugar may be the problem.
