Nollywood actor and comedian, Francis Odega has backed the agitation for Biafra by Nnamdi Kanu and his group, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.

Odega, known for his ‘gerara here’ slang, explained that he was in support of an Igbo nation because the North ordered Igbo out of their region.

He said the October 1 ultimatum was a warning that the Southeast people should be on their own.

“I don’t think Nnamdi Kanu is doing bad for himself. Because when one look at it, how can some Northern youths say they don’t want us (Igbos) from their states?

“That means we are not welcomed. If one say ‘leave the North, quit the North’ that means such persons don’t want us and the only thing for us to do is to have our own.

“If someone ask me not to come to his house again, what do I do? I look for my own house. I don’t have a reason to pretend about this.

“If Biafra want to come let it come,”

Following the release of her book ‘Rebirth’ where she narrated the story of her life, Nigerian actress Juliana Olayode has been attacked by fans for initially lying that she was a virgin. 
 
In an interview she granted in the past, the actress who is known for her stance on sexual purity lied that she was a virgin. However, she has confessed, in her book why she lied revealing further that she lost her virginity to her married music teacher when she was 17 years old.
 
She wrote in her book: “People had assumed I was a virgin. I had never said I was but I had never corrected their assumptions either. So, I was still in that fix. Shortly after my confession, Ebony Life TV called me for an interview. I went and for the first time in my several interviews, I was asked point blank if I was a virgin. I tried to evade the question, but my interviewer was not having it. She demanded for a yes or no. I did not see the question coming and I lied. I said, “Yes, I am a virgin”.
 
“Immediately the interview was over, I hurried to the bathroom in the studio and cried. I felt terrible for lying and told God I was sorry.  I called Dee on my way home and confessed my wrong. I explained further when I got home. The next thing he said shocked me. He said, ‘Call her and confess the truth. Ask for a rescheduling of the interview; do it again and undo your mistake.’

“I was not going to do that. I felt it was my secret and the whole world need not know about it. I was upset with myself, however, for answering her. I could have insisted I could not tell. 

“So, I proposed never to answer such again. Easier said than done, right? Shortly after, I was on another TV interview, Crux Of The Matter, with Elsie. I was invited to talk for sexual purity while the other guest spoke against. 
 
“In the process of the discussion, around the time when it was heated, I was asked out of the blues again if I was a virgin. And before I knew it, I heard myself lying again. I was mad at myself.

“I was on another TV interview that trended for a while. It was On The Couch, with Lady Ariyike. I talked about sexual purity, but thankfully I was not asked if I was virgin. After that one, I decided to stop interviews altogether. I was tired of lying or having to dread lying if I was asked straight up.”

Sleeping n*ked shouldn’t just be reserved for heatwaves – scientists claim it has a range of health-boosting benefits.
 
From boosting male virility to reducing stress, it seems simply peeling your clothes off before bed can cure all sorts of ailments and generally just make life a bit easier.
 
1. It’s literally the coolest thing you can do
 
The Los Angeles Sleep Study Institute claims that there’s a direct link between insomnia and poor body temperature regulation.
 
Their team of expert claims one of the reasons people wake up in the night and struggle to drop off again is because they’ve overheated.
 
However, by ditching the threads, the body can better maintain its own temperature and you’re less likely to wake up.
 
2. It helps combat heart disease
 
Getting a good night’s sleep has been found to directly affect your chances of getting diabetes or heart disease.
 
Researchers from the University of Warwick discovered that people who only slept a few hours a night were more prone to incident-impaired fasting glycaemia (IFG).
 
The pre-diabetic condition means that your body isn’t able to regulate glucose as efficiently as it should, and people diagnosed with it are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, and have a higher risk of heart disease and strokes.
 
3. It’s good for wannabe dads
 
A 2015 study concluded that men looking to start a family – or add to an existing one – should not only opt for roomy boxers, but also sleep in the nude.
 
Researchers tracked 500 men over a year, monitoring what pants they were wearing and their general sperm quality.
 
They found that men who wore loose boxer shorts and slept naked had sperm that was 25 percent less damaged than men who wore tight pants and kept them on at night.
 
4. Less clothes = more happy
 
A 2014 study of 1000 Brits revealed that the less fabric between partners the higher their happiness level.
 
Researches found 57 percent of couples who slept in the nude claimed to be happy together.
 
This was compared with 48 percent of pyjama wearers, 43 percent of women who wore nighties, and 38 percent of people who wore onesies.
 
5. It’s a stress-buster
 
The Huffington Post asked sleep expert Neil Robinson if there were any other benefits of stripping off before bed.
 
He said: “Sleeping naked helps to decrease cortisol, increases the growth hormone and balances melatonin, all of which work to reduce stress levels.”
 
6. Your skin appreciates it
 
Sleep expert Neil also told the publication that sleeping naked is good for your body, inside AND out.
 
He said: “Sleeping naked can also improve circulation and can keep your skin healthier.”

President Muhammadu Buhari has received the presidential media team at his Abuja House residence in London where he is on medical leave.
 
President Muhammadu Buhari with R-L: Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Senior Special Assistant Media & Publicity Mallam Garba Shehu, Minister of Information Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Special Adviser Media and Publicity Mr Femi Adesina and Personal Assistant Digital/Online Media Lauretta Onochie as he receives Presidential media team as well as Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters at the Abuja House London on 12th August 2017.
 
Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari says he is okay and that the reason he has not returned home was that he needed to obey his doctor’s order, PM News reports.
 
According to Buhari,  he wished to return home, “but I’ve learnt to obey my doctor’s orders, rather than be the one issuing the orders. Here, the doctor is absolutely in charge.”
 
The President spoke while receiving the presidential media team, and the Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters, at Abuja House, London, on Saturday.
 
Alhaji Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, led the visiting team, accompanied by Mr Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity; Mallam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, and Lauretta Onochie, Personal Assistant on Digital/Online Media.
 
Also, there was Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters.
 
According to a statement from Femi Adesina, when the team expressed delight at the much improved health of the President, he retorted: “I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge. I’ve now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed.”
 
On how he felt hearing different conjectures about his health, an amused Buhari said he followed events at home closely, lauding Nigerian television stations, and the media generally, for keeping him informed.
 
When told that prayers were going on fervently for him, not only in Nigeria, but all over Africa, and round the world, a delighted President said: “What we did in The Gambia early this year fetched us a lot of goodwill on the African continent. It gave us a lot of latitude. I thank all those who are praying. May God reward them.”
 
President Buhari sent appreciation to all Nigerians, expressing hope that he would be with them soon.

Chief Olusegun Obansanjo, Nigeria’s ex President  on Saturday at Apostolic Faith Church said he wants to go heaven because he longs to sing among the heavenly host when he get there.

He said, “You have to be fully prepared for the second coming of our Lord, there is no compromise.

“I have a friend who will always say that when we get to heaven, we will be exhausted  praising God and it will be like a prison and very boring.

“But with what I have seen by the choir this afternoon, I will want to go to heaven and join the host to sing.

“If this is an example of what  praising God in heaven will be like, then I want to be  part of it. If what I have seen here is an indication of how heaven will be, I will like  go to heaven.

“Jesus Christ came to the world to show us the way to salvation and eternal life. We have a good heritage and we have everything to be proud of.”
 
Obasanjo said God could not  fix Nigeria  except Nigerians invite God into their lives collectively and individually.

“We have a lot of things wrong with this country, if all Nigerians are sincere.

“Nigeria can be fixed by God but we have to invite Him into our lives. What we have to do about this country is in our hands.

“Gods grace abounds when we do not abuse it,” he said.

Drama as RCCG Bans Aso Ebi, Ungodly Wedding Engagement…See Details

The Redeemed Christian Church of God has banned the use of the popular aso ebi uniforms worn at wedding ceremonies.
Pastor Foluke Adeboye
 
The leadership of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has banned the use of compulsory uniforms also known as Aso Ebi worn at church functions.
 
According to Tribune, wife of the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Foluke Adeboye, disclosed this yesterday, when she spoke at the church’s women’s meeting, which was part of the activities of its 65th annual convention of the church themed “Halleluyah”.
 
Pastor Mrs Adeboye described as ungodly acts by some church leaders to compel their members to buy and wear a particular uniform aka Aso ebi during any church function.
 
She said that there have been reports that some members of some parishes in the church that cannot afford to buy some of these Aso Ebi’s have been exempted from some church functions. She warned that such un-Christianly act of keeping church members out of programmes because of Aso ebi, must never be heard of again among the women in the church, adding that those caught would be severely sanctioned.
 
According to her, Aso Ebi which should ordinarily be for the family, must not be elevated to the point of making it to overshadow the spiritual life of the congregants.
 
Mrs Adeboye also frowned at the idea of what is seen as petty lies during Christian wedding engagement, where those conducting such events would have to engage in lies to make money from the attendees.
 
According to her, there is no white or black lie, small or big lie with God. She stressed that when attendees are asked to bring air fare to fly in an item already provided for at the event venue, those involved are simply engaging in ungodly act which is a sin.
 
She called for moderation among Christian women, saying that their focus should be bringing halleluyah and spirituality into their homes and not engaging in the ungodly acts of the unbelievers.

Drama as 8 LASTMA Officials Are Arrested in Lagos…Checkout What They Did Wrong

Up to about eight LASTMA officials have been nabbed after being found out to have committed a grievous offence.
File photo: LASTMA officials
 
The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority has arrested eight of its officials for collecting bribe from motorists and other corrupt practices, Sunday Punch reports.
 
The officials, who are attached to the Agege-Pen Cinema Office of the Agency, were arrested last week. They are Adebeshin Adeola, Davies Idowu, Folashade Abolade, Shittu Lanre, Akinkotu Olusoga, Olowu Said, Olaoye Peter and Adebola Said.
 
The duo of Adeshina and Davies had earlier arrested two Lagos painted commercial buses with registration numbers FKJ 770 XT and KRD 558 XM driven by one Olatunji Mayowa and Donatus Eze respectively at Abule Egba area of the State for seat belt violation.
 
The actions of the drivers were in violations of the Lagos State Traffic laws, and the buses were subsequently apprehended and taken to the Agege-Pen Cinema Office of the Agency.
 
However, the matter took a new twist at the Agege Office when the apprehending officials in conjunction with the General Duty Officer demanded for the sum of N7,200 from each of the bus drivers before the release of the buses.
 
The drivers, knowing the position of LASTMA on corruption and having listened to various media programmes where official complaint numbers were given, alerted the Agency and marked currency were given to the complainants and collected by the officials in a successful sting operation organized and coordinated by the Provost Marshal of the Agency, Mr Femi Ajibosho.
 
The Provost Marshal arrived when Abolade was about collecting N7,200 from Donatus Eze, while the collected marked money of N7,200 of Olatunji Mayowa was found on her after search.
 
In the same vein and at the same location, the members of the patrol team of the Agency comprising of Shittu Lanre, Akinkotu Olusoga, Olowu Said, Olaoye Peter and Adebola Said also arrested a vehicle for traffic laws violation and asked Abolade to facilitate collection of bribe on their behalf from the alleged offender before the release of the vehicle.
 
All the traffic officials involved in this shameful act have been released on bail, but are to face the full weight of the Lagos State Public Service Rules and Regulations.
 
Speaking on the incident at Oshodi Office of the Agency, LASTMA General Manager, Mr Olawale Musa said the Agency has set a standard for itself to become one of the most disciplined, credible and efficient traffic management institution in the Sub-Saharan Africa.
 
He said: “LASTMA under my watch will not tolerate any act of indiscipline and corruption capable of dragging the revered image of the Agency and that of the State Government to the mud.

“To this end, all the officials involved in the shameful act will be made to appear before the Personnel Management Board (Discipline) to defend their action in accordance with the relevant sections of the Public Service Rules.”
 
Speaking further, Musa said the action of the officials were disgraceful and did not represent the training and operational manual of the Agency, adding that it also did not justify the huge motivation and investment in them by the Agency to perform excellently on the road.
 
He said the introduction of culture of civility and respect for motorists’ rights was part of the bid to curb corruption in the agency, with more emphasis on reducing rash decisions, extortion of motorists and rather concentrating on efficient traffic management and control.
 
However, the LASTMA boss said the new paradigm shift which is now responsible for sanity, orderliness and seamless traffic on Lagos roads does not preclude the Agency from sanctioning any motorist who runs foul of the law when occasion calls for it, in order to improve on the existing tempo and performance.
 
It would be recalled that the Agency recently dismissed 20 officials for various corrupt practices and 15 others received letters of warning for various acts considered inimical to the Agency and service of the Lagos State Government.
