Parallel APC Executives Emerge In 8 States

It was, however, not so in Ondo State where the division between Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and some National Assembly members and other stakeholders escalated to violence that led to the thorough beating of as many as 50 journalists, politicians and observers by thugs. A member of the House of Representatives, Bamidele Baderinwa, was stripped naked and bludgeoned with machetes by the thugs at the rival congress.  Osun State Commissioner for Regional Integration, Bola Ilori, who is from the state, was among the victims who got a taste of the beating by the thugs. There were, however, largely uneventful congresses in several other states including Borno where all former officers were returned unopposed and a development that kept the structure of the party in the hands of Governor Kashim Shettima. Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State was, however, not as lucky as stakeholders opposed to his ascendancy ignored a last-minute court order to elect a new executive for the state chapter of t…

My Verdict On The Movie "Black Panther" By OLANIYI ADEGBOYEGA

Heard numerous people said the Movie "Black Panther" is over hyped. Left to me, it's not.

Black Panther is a movie that is meant to be well documented in Black nation's library, Africa especially if we have one. It's a movie every African child have to see.

A movie that is targeted to bring African nations together, reminding us of the good, golden and memorable old days. Bringing to heart what and how Africa have ever been before. How strong, cultured and self reliant we were before the intervention of the greedy whites who truncated our growth, punctured our tradition and stole our pride away all to encapsulate them in their museum.

'Wakanda' as used in the movie is a conglomeration of Africa countries. Our vibranium is our wealth of abundant natural and mineral resources which are enough for us to control the world.

How about our catchy and inviting cultures that are enough for us to drive the world in terms of tourism. Whites knowing this secret just…

The popular female journalist Madam Kemi Olunloyo also known as 'Madam koo' may join the Governorship Race in Oyo state by becoming the first female Governor of the State, she said this on her Facebook page which read thus:

After what happened in the APC primaries yesterday in #Ekiti, you can see why I wanted to run as an independent candidate in 2019 for Governor when I announced in 2017. No credible primaries. If they don't approve independent candidacy, I will join a credible mushroom party. They told my dad not to RUN in 1983. He won! Nobody will tell me. I work for my people. My dad says he'll support me but the state is sexist. He's RIGHT! Bear in mind we are the only state and a pioneer pacesetter state which has never had a FEMALE DEPUTY GOVERNOR in Western Nigeria who started that phenomenon.

I MAY STILL RUN as the first elected FEMALE governor of Oyo State Government and Nigeria...PERIOD. Forms are free for women. Stay Tuned...

However all fingers crossed …

By Hassan Yakubu John 

With its purest of waters
Your feet is lifted high,
Then your eyes metamophorsize slowly into the redish flames of fire.
And seeing a thousand men in one ordinary man standing before you.

With its caffine free invitation, you  are called upon like the lamb to the slaughter.
In dangling feets like the swing in the play ground of a basic school.

Do not try to climb any stirs, 'cause it will be a journey from egypt to the promise land.
40  years of futility and struggles!
Take a gulp and the bullets penetrates you like the speed of light
Then you'll see what  a vodka mixed drink of 250mle and 18volume evidences
Especially when you drink more.
'Just enjoy the pre-mixed drink responsibly'
No do pass your self!

I've Not Changed My Mind About Buhari - Obasanjo

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo says assessment of Buhari’s administration in the three years remained the same, describing the president’s performance as a total failure. In a statement by his media aide, Kehinde Adeyemi, on Wednesday, May 2, Obasanjo said Buhari failed to redeem himself during his visit to the US where he met with President Donald Trump. “It has come to the attention of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo that some elements in the Muhammadu Buhari camp and or support group are desperate to secure a second term, fair or foul. In this desperation, everything is fair, including telling libelous lies against persons and institutions, instead of addressing the fundamental issues of statecraft and economic management.” He said in the last 24 hours the internet has been bombarded with deliberate falsehoods aimed at hoodwinking the unsuspecting Nigerians to believe that he has now endorsed Buhari for his second term because of some perceived Buhari’s ‘superlative’ performance in hi…

An Argentine woman Brenda Barattini accused of cutting off her boyfriend’s penis with gardening scissors said she was provoked because he showed his friends their homemade sex tape, according to reports.

According to Fox News, hospital employees were unable to reattach Fernandez’ penis. The incident rings similar to the ca…

'Mikel Going To Arsenal Bad For Mancity' - Pep Guardiola

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiolahas said that a Mikel Arteta move to become Arsenal’s manager after Arsene Wenger’s exit would be bad for City. Guardiola described the former Arsenal captain as a great coach who has been instrumental to City’s success this season. Wenger recently announced his decision to quit as Arsenal manager after 22 years in charge and replacements are already being suggested. The 36-year-old Arteta is being tipped as a good fit as he understands the club’s philosophy. His position is further boosted by favourite, Luis Enrique’s demand of a £200 million war chest as a precondition for penning a deal to become the London club’s manager. Arsenal’s bosses are said to be reluctant to provide such a huge amount, which may prevent the deal from sailing through. Pundits say this opens the door for an Arteta move and Guardiola does not appear ready to part with his coach. He said,”My opinion about Mikel is overwhelming. He deserves the best. “Hopefully we are so c…
