40 % Of My Cabinet Will Be Women, Youths - Atiku

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar says women and youths will occupy at least 40 per cent of his cabinet if elected president.

He made the pledge in a series of tweets on Wednesday, four months to the general elections in 2019.

Atiku, who is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), faulted President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) government for the economic status of the nation.

According to him, Nigeria has become the world headquarters for “extreme poverty”.


The former vice president, however, explained that the way out of poverty was to empower women and youths in the country.

He recalled that during his time in government, the PDP administration designed its policies to help young people grow stronger banks and networks among others.

Atiku added that many Nigerians who travelled abroad in search of greener pastures returned to the country to start successful businesses.

He alleged that the case was different under the present administration, saying those young people who returned were already leaving the country again.

The PDP candidate disclosed that their policy document, which he said was ready, would be unveiled soon.

He explained that it was designed mainly to create an enabling environment for the youth and women to return to the path of wealth creation and gainful .

Doctor Beheaded By BF After Refusing To Marry Him

Doctor Beheaded By BF After Refusing To Marry Him

A junior doctor was reportedly beheaded by her boyfriend after she refused to marry him, say police. Teacher Shyngys Bekenov proposed to his girlfriend Nazerke Bekzhanova, 21, who had recently graduated from medical university in Kazakhstan. She refused because her parents did not approve of him, it is believed.

‘Furious’ over her rejection, the 26-year-old allegedly severed her head as they sat in his car. The man then tried but failed to end his own life by stabbing himself in the abdomen after writing a suicide note asking that they should be buried together, according to police.

Bekenov has been detained in hospital in a ‘grave but stable’ condition with knife wounds. He faces a charge of murder with a minimum sentence of 15 years.


His note claimed he had beheaded the woman after she told him she would marry him, it was reported.

The woman’s beheaded body was found in the car near a dam on the edge of Tasboget village, five miles from Kyzylorda city. A neighbour of the victim said: ‘The parents of the young woman were against this marriage. But why did he kill her? We are in shock. We did not expect anything like this.’

The couple had been seen talking animatedly several hours before her body was found. She had just started her first job at a medical centre after graduating from the medical institute in Aktobe.

'APC Doesn't Deserve Anything Of Mine' - Aisha Alhassan Removes Rugs, Computers She Bought For Party

'APC Doesn't Deserve Anything Of Mine' - Aisha Alhassan Removes Rugs, Computers She Bought For Party

Aisha Alhassan, Nigeria's former Minister of Women Affairs, has retrieved items she donated to the All Progressives Congress (APC) secretariat in Taraba State.

Following her resignation from the party after she was disqualified from contesting for the state governorship ticket on the platform of the APC, 'Mama Taraba', as she is popularly known, removed rugs, computer systems, tables, among other items from the state secretariat, insisting that "APC doesn't deserve anything of mine".

Condemning the development when he spoke to NAN on Wednesday, Aaron Artimas, APC Publicity Secretary in the state, said: "We find this development shameful, unfortunately it is true. The former Minister has emptied the office she furnished when she was a member of the APC.



"It is amazing to us because Aisha Alhassan was the highest beneficiary of the party in the state. It is a very shameful action, but we shall leave her to conscience."

However, Alhassan denied physically removing the items but said she supported those who did, as the party did not deserve them.

Her words: "I bought the items with my money. When my boys told me they were removing them from the party secretariat, I gave them the go-ahead because the APC does not deserve anything of mine.

“I could not have moved the items to Abuja. I merely gave my boys the nod to move them out because the APC was wicked to me. If I had left the party on my own, I would not have bothered about the items, but you know the circumstances that pushed me out.

“I bought the items to furnish the party secretariat, but since I have moved to the UDP, I did not see anything wrong with moving with all my belongings. They should buy their own furniture for the offices."

Senate Asks CBN To Suspend ATM Card Maintenance Charges

Senate Asks CBN To Suspend ATM Card Maintenance Charges

The Senate has urged the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to look into the suspension of the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) maintenance and withdrawal charges by banks.

This was after a motion on "illicit and excessive charges by Nigerian banks in customers accounts" was raised by Senator Gbenga Ashafa during the plenary session on Wednesday.

Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu seconded the motion, saying: "The ATM charge is not the only charge we get from the bank, there are VAT charges and so on; this is unacceptable. We have the Customer Protection Agency in Nigeria, but they are not living up to expectations."


The issue generated much debate on the floor of the Senate and after much deliberations, a few resolutions were made.

The Senate directed the committees on banking insurance and other financial institutions and finance to conduct an investigation into the propriety of ATM card maintenance charges in comparison with international best practices and report back to the Senate.

It also mandated the committees on banking, insurance and other financial institutions and finance to invite the CBN Governor to appear before the body in order to explain why the official charges as approved by the CBN are skewed in favour of the banking institutions as against the ordinary customers of the banks.

The lawmakers urged CBN to suspend the ATM card maintenance charges being deducted from customers accounts, just as they called on the CBN to instruct the commercial banks to configure their machines to extend to N40,000 per withdrawal, pending the outcome of the investigation by the committees.

The Consumer Protection Council was called upon to be up and doing in taking up the plight of ordinary Nigerians by looking into the various complaints of excess and unnecessary charges by Nigerian banks.

Ibori Loses Appeal Against UK Graft Conviction

Ibori Loses Appeal Against UK Graft Conviction

A former Delta State Governor, James Ibori who was jailed in Britain for laundering tens of millions of dollars in stolen public funds through British banks and properties lost an appeal against his conviction in London today.

The Court of Appeal’s ruling against James Ibori, is a relief for the British authorities at a time when they are trying to stem the flow of dirty money from overseas through London.

Ibori, who in his heyday was one of Nigeria’s richest and most powerful men, pleaded guilty in a London court in 2012 to 10 counts of fraud and money-laundering involving sums amounting to at least 50 million pounds ($66 million).


He received a 13-year jail sentence of which he served half, as is common in the British system, and is now back in Nigeria.

Wednesday’s ruling will allow Britain to resume efforts to confiscate millions of dollars’ worth of assets and return them to Nigerian public coffers. The assets have been frozen for years while the case has been dragging through the courts. Good news to Nigerian!

Pakistan Executes Serial Paedophile...

Pakistan Executes Serial Paedophile...

An accused pedophile and killer of eight children has been executed in Pakistan after his appeals were rejected by the courts, officials said.

Mohammad Imran was hanged at a prison in Lahore in the presence of Amin Ansari, the father of one of his victims.

The rape and murder of Ansari's 7-year-old daughter Zainab in January caused a global outcry.

The hanging took place in the early morning on October 17 and the body was handed over to the man's family, prison official Muzaffar Awan said.


Imran was arrested two weeks after Zainab's body was found at a garbage dump in the town of Kasur near Lahore in January.

Police said the girl had been raped and strangled to death. Imran confessed to having s-xually assaulted and killed another seven children during interrogation.

Ansari, whom a court allowed to witness the execution, said he felt satisfied after seeing his daughter's killer dying "horribly."

"I feel justice has been served," Ansari told Pakistan's Geo television.

Nearly 3,500 children are s-xually assaulted in Pakistan every year and most predators escape the law due to legal and social complications, Gohar Mumtaz of the charity group Sahil said.

Sodomy: Landlord Arrested For Defiling Tenant’s Sons

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a landlord, Mr. Trust Ezekiel, 34, for allegedly defiling five of his tenant’s sons at their Ijanikin residence.

The alleged paedophile and landlord of no 10 Paul Anyawu Street, Era Ijaniki Lagos, was arrested on Friday, October 11, after the 10-year-old let the cat out of the bag.

Accodring to the minor, since age five, the landlord had been sleeping with him through the anus.


Ezekiel, who is married and has two children, both girls, was said to have threatened the survivors that he would kill them if they spoke up.

One of the survivor’s, who cried that he didn’t want to die, said, “He always used olive oil to rub my anus then put his manhood inside. I always cry because it is painful.”

However, the landlord got arrested after the little boy complained to his elder brother and another little neighbour, a boy, who all concurred and echoed that the landlord threatened to kill them if they ever say anything to anyone.

He said: “In the process of recounting his ordeal, one of the the boy’s mother heard it and questioned them and they confessed.

“That was how the woman became enraged and involved people and the police into the matter.”

The suspect, who is currently at the Gender Unit of the Lagos State Police Command for investigation, is currently undergoing interrogation.

Must Watch! TV Anchor’s Daughter Wows Internet With BBC Interview

Must Watch! TV Anchor’s Daughter Wows Internet With BBC Interview

BBC Swahili anchor Anne Ngugi’s daughter Angel Wanjiru has wowed the internet after narrating how she has overcome her health problems and accompanying bullying and is now pursuing her dream of becoming a musician.

Angel was born with a congenital disorder called hydrocephalus (a buildup of excess cerebrospinal fluid in the brain at birth), which means she has a bigger head than other people. However, at just 14, she’s produced her first album.

In an interview with BBC What’s New’s Christine, Angel reveals that initially she was concerned why she was born different from other children and why people stole glances at her but with time, she accepted her condition and learnt that the best way to deal with bullying is through songs.


“Mum, why am I different from other people? Why is it that when I pass, people laugh at me?” she used to ask her mother, who she says only responded by singing. She took the cue  and the rest is history.

Mum Who Fell Off Bed & Got Paralysed During Steaming S-x Sues Bed Company For £1m

Mum Who Fell Off Bed & Got Paralysed During Steaming S-x Sues Bed Company For £1m

A woman who was left paralysed after being “catapulted” from her super-king bed during s-x is suing the bed suppliers for £1m compensation.

Claire Busby suffered a serious spinal injury after she fell from the super king-size double divan whilst changing positions.

The 46-year-old was kneeling in the middle of the bed performing a s-x act on her partner when she decided to change positions.

Claire told the High Court this is when the bed gave way and she fell off and landed on her head.


She said: “I spun around, I put my hand down and then I felt like I was catapulted off the back of the bed.

"My head hit the floor, I fell to the side and then I heard like a spring in my body snap, it felt like."

The mum-of-four claims the bed was in a “defective state” and has taken legal action against the Berkshire Bed Company, trading as Beds Are Uzzz, which supplied it.

The supplier denies any liability for Claire’s injuries and is arguing the bed was properly assembled.

The bed was one of five that were delivered to Claire’s home in Maidenhead, Berks when she was renovating the property in August 2013, the court heard.

Claire told the court she was injured a week after the bed was delivered.

Her sister, Natalie, told the court that she went to visit her sister after the accident and saw “two feet” were missing from the bed.

However, the pair did not discuss the matter right away because Claire was in such poor health.

She said: “Claire wasn't in any fit state to be having a conversation, at one point she had two heart attacks in 24 hours.

"It was touch and go whether she was going to make it."

Claire claims the divans that make up the base of the bed were never properly fastened together and the two “gliders”, or feet, were missing from the end of the bed.

She said this created a height difference between one end of the bed and another.

Her barrister Winston Hunter QC said Claire expected the mattress to support her weight, but it failed to and she continued moving “backwards and downwards”.

He told the court: "It is the claimant's case that the point at which she left the bed is precisely the location where the different height of the two divans was at its maximum.

"It represented the area where the mattress was most likely to 'fall away' due to the fact that it was partially unsupported."

Lawyers for the bed company argue the bed was properly assembled when it was delivered and even if the two feet had gone missing it still would not have caused Claire to fall off the way she said she did.

Neil Block QC, for the firm, said: "It is overwhelmingly likely that, whatever her actions, they were too close to the edge of the bed and she simply lost balance and toppled backwards.”

Nollywood actress, Dakore Akande recently clocked 40 and she said she really didn’t want to have a celebration, but her husband insisted. So they had a party and here are some pics from the celebration…


Dakore also wrote this about her party;

''So here’s the thing....I didn’t really feel like celebrating my 40th...Earlier on in the year I struggled with my new age approaching and feeling like I hadn’t accomplished all the things I had expected to have done by now( can you imagine?? This devil shaaaa)..Then the aha moment where I realized it’s a journey and I have to embrace every stage.

Photos: New Born Baby Found Dead In Nigerian Well

A newborn baby has been found dead in a well in Northern part of Nigeria. The baby was found floating by someone who had one to the well to fetch water. He raised an alarm immediately he found the baby, and the baby was brought out dead. Residents have now started making investigations to see if the mother of the child can be traced. Too sad!
