Come out and vote to shame GEJ, his wife and Wike-Amaechi tells Rivers state residents ahead of state rerun election

Ahead of the Rivers state rerun election for House of Assembly, House of Representatives and Senate members, former Rivers state governor and Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, has asked people of the state to come out en-mass and vote for APC so as to shame former President Jonathan, his wife Patience and the present governor of the state, Nyesom Wike.
Amaechi said this while speaking at a townhall meeting with members of Afara community in the state today March 15th. Amaechi alleged that the former President worked against the progress of the state by "forcing" Nyesom Wike on them as their governor

"We must stop Nyesom Wike and the only way we can stop him is to vote the APC in the house of representatives, house of assembly and senate. I built a secondary school and it has been taken over by weeds. It is the punishment that former President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife, in her bid to get money from me, did on us. They forced Wike on us without election. In their time, they threw APC members into detention, but is there any PDP member in detention now? That’s the difference between them and us. This is our opportunity to vote and put shame on them; we have to put shame on three persons: the first person is the former president, the second, is his wife and the third is Wike. The fourth is those who do not recognise the use of card reader, those who first said the magnitude of violence in Rivers was too heavy and moved the election tribunal to Abuja, but later came back to say there was no election, we leave them to God"he said

Lol. Arsenal fan burns his jersey after loss to Watford ends title hopes

An Arsenal fan burnt his jersey after Watford eliminated Arsenal from the F.A Cup. Arsenal is still in the champions league and premier league but face a daunting task against in-form Barcelona. They are also trailing Leicester on the EPL Table. Watch the video after the cut.

“I have instructed my lawyers to withdraw the lawsuit against the NFF. After speaking with well-meaning Nigerians, who I respect a lot, I also believe it is useless joining issues with people who are bent on deceiving Nigerians and misleading Nigerians and diverting attention from the reality. Certain vested interest​s​ in the NFF put their own interests first before that of Nigeria. My position of putting Nigeria first was a hindrance to certain vested interests in the NFF. If you put Nigeria first, you will always have problems with the NFF. This also explains why the benefits of players and wages and coaches are always placed secondary, while other things like team building trips will always be catered to first.”he said. See copies of his statement of account and video where he spoke on these issues after the cut

Tiwa Savage gets emotional after visiting orphanage in South Africa today

Tiwa who is presently in South Africa, visited an orphanage there today and wrote on how emotional she got seeing the beautiful children there. She shared these photos above and wrote
"Today I visited an orphanage in Glenvista SA called "Door Of Hope" I think it is very important to try and sew a seed when I travel. I heard about this orphanage and how it started and I decided I had to go and do my little part to help.
"I don't even know when I started crying uncontrollably. These babies are so so so beautiful, I can't imagine how much hardship and pain these mothers must have gone through to make such a difficult decision. I also thought of where these little ones would end up if no one adopts them. 💔💔💔 we live in a harsh world and we judge people sometimes not knowing what their background is or what they've had to endure. I feel in love with their little souls, just watched some of them sleeping with their little hearts beating. God help us all create a better world for the little innocent ones".

Buhari condemns the political violence in Rivers state, vows to deal with all sponsors of violence

Press statement from the presidency... 
President Buhari Tuesday in Malabo condemned recent political violence in Rivers State, saying that the killing of people over political differences was primitive, barbaric and unacceptable. "We will deal decisively with all sponsors of violence. I have given the security services clear directives in this regard. We will show that violence in any form will no longer be tolerated before, during or after elections," the President said at an interactive meeting with Nigerians resident in Equatorial Guinea.
President Buhari said that the Independent National Electoral Commission will be encouraged to explore the possibility of Nigerians abroad voting in the 2019 general elections. Noting that some African countries have started allowing their citizens resident abroad to vote in national elections, the President said that he fully empathised with the desire of Nigerians in the diaspora to vote in national elections. President Buhari pledged that he will therefore do all within his powers to fulfil that desire.
"I want all Nigerians to know that I respect them and their right to choose their leaders," he said

The President also said that establishing a new national airline was not currently on the Federal Government's list of priorities. President Buhari declared that his administration's main area of focus now was reducing the level of poverty in the country. The President said that developing the infrastructure needed to boost production in all sectors of the economy and create more jobs for young Nigerians, as well as other actions that will directly improve the living conditions of ordinary Nigerians will continue to be prioritized by his administration. President Buhari was responding to complaints by members of the Nigerian community about the absence of direct flights between Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea.

The President assured them that his administration's war against corruption will remain "fearless, relentless and merciless".
"We will be merciless and relentless in pursuing all those who abused public trust. Nigerians will see how some of the elite conspired to run the nation down," he said.
