I cannot stop thanking you for coming into my life and showing me the God kind of love. With you, I have learnt more than I imagined. You’ve helped me to see that there is so much more to believe in. You have loved me so dear and opened my eyes to see new possibilities in unearthing my potentials. Together, God has enabled us to raise enviable children who are all now Kingdom giants in our lifetime to His glory! You are an unparalleled man of valour. Surely, the grace of God will keep multiplying upon your life and ministry in new and greater dimensions in Jesus’ name. Life has become extra special since you entered my world. Every day I awake renewed by the thought and constant echo of your love! Many men have done valiantly, but thou, my husband, my darling, the husband of my youth, excellest them all. We shall yet do greater things for God and His Kingdom! Congratulations and happy birthday darling husband, father, friend, teacher, mentor and lover! #Papa62

'President Buhari is simply incompetent, he was never ready for the job' - Ex Jigawa state gov, Sule Lamido says


Former governor of Jigawa State and chieftain of PDP, Sule Lamido, says that President Buhari is simply incompetent and was never ready for the job as President. Lamido who is presently standing trial alongside his two sons for allegedly embezzling N1.3 billion public funds while he served as Governor of Jigawa state, said this in a recent interview with DailyTrust;

“President Buhari is simply incompetent on the provision of the welfare of the citizens because he was never ready for the job, and so, he lacks the capacity to source for the wherewithal to do it well to the satisfaction of Nigerians.
If he (Buhari) cannot ensure the provision of basic needs of Nigerians, tell him to hand over to me and see how I will source for the wherewithal to do it. Imagine a husband who, before marrying his wife, promised her that he would provide all her legal and legitimate needs according to the obligations of matrimony, only to confront the wife shortly after the wedding and tell her that he didn’t know that he would have to provide her ‘this’, and he has now realized that he cannot, and she should please bear with him; and the wife, because of the love she has for him, overlooks that limitation. The following day, he confronts her again, explaining his inability to provide another basic need, pleading with her to overlook it, and she does so; again he comes to her another day to say he didn’t know that he also has to provide so and so to her, and now he has realized he cannot; it should dawn on the wife that he simply cannot discharge the obligations of matrimony to her, and it is legal and legitimate for her to seek divorce,” he said

Recession: In Niger State, hungry youths snatch food packs from nursery and primary school children

Hunger-induced crimes in Minna, Niger State capital have taken a worrying dimension as hungry youths now go about snatching food packs from nursery and primary school children on their way to school, The Guardian reports.
The latest victim, one Fati Sanusi, a four-year-old nursery two pupil of Mega Stars Academy, located in Kpakungu, Minna, alleged that her food pack, prepared by her mother was snatched from her by a youth.
Headmistress of the school, Mrs. Cecilia Bunmi Koseemani, who confirmed the incident exclusively to The Guardian, said that it was difficult to get the little girl to stop crying.
"We had to send for her mother who prevailed on the four-year-old girl before she stopped crying. The mother later rushed back home to prepare Indomie for her instead of the rice meal that was initially snatched from her." said Mrs Koseemani.
The Headmistress appealed to parents to try and put their little school children in the care of grown up schoolmates, so as to avoid such things in the future, describing the incident as a reflection of the prevailing hardship in the country.
Other cases of hunger-induced crimes includes reports of people stealing food still on fire, as well as women collecting food items from sellers in the market and deliberately taking to their heels instead of paying. It was also reported that a housewife stabbed her rival to death over the modalities for sharing a measure of Gaari (Cassava flour) brought home by their husband.

Transgender couple become first in the world to give birth to their own biological baby


A transgender man, Fernando Machado who was assigned female at birth and his partner Diane Rodriguez, who was assigned male at birth, gave birth to a healthy child after conceiving with his transgender wife, making the couple the first transgender couple in South America to do so.
The couple who gave birth in June, live in Ecuador have expressed their desire to have more children.

Machado told BBC:
“We are the same as other families. Even though we might not have the same rights, we are the same,”
The transgender couple met after meeting on social media more than two years ago.
Diane told the BBC :
"We don't have a name yet - or rather we do - we are just waiting to announce it.
"Being a mother was never something I thought I would do because I am a transsexual.The law before demanded that to be recognised as a woman you had to be castrated."We are the same as other families. Even though we might not have the same rights, we're the same.
Ms Rodriguez on the other hand said, said she never thought she would have the opportunity to be a mother.
 The couple have not undergone full gender reassignment so were able to conceive naturally.

'We live as man and woman. I'm a transfeminine woman and Fernando is a transmasculine man. The process to get here was complex for each of us,” Mr Machado said

Photos/Video: 21 Nigerian prostitutes who were beaten if they didn't bring in €1,000 a day, rescued by police in Ibiza, Spain


A major operation carried out by the Spanish police in association with the Office of Criminal Investigation in Germany and Europol has led to rescue of 21 Nigerian prostitutes and the arrest of 24 suspects, including members of 'Supreme Eiye Confraternity cult, in the exclusive districts of Ibiza, Spain. 

The prostitutes, some as young as 16 were lured to the Spanish mainland with fake promises of jobs and then forced to work 14 hours a day. The were beaten with brooms and sticks if they didn't bring in €1,000.


"The network captured very young victims among the lower classes of the major Nigerian cities, deceiving them with false job offers in Spain,"

"Once in our country, they were forced into prostitution in marathon days, being beaten if they did not earn the money demanded by the gang," said a police spokesman.

Investigators said Ibiza was chosen for the summer because of the high influx of tourists, with the gang totalling controlling the streets of the exclusive areas. They were kept in one apartment and only allowed out occasionally to buy food or to keep an appointment with a client.

"If they didn't earn 1,000 euros a day, they would be forced to kneel for hours and beaten with sticks and brooms,' said the spokesman.

Police found that 17 women were forced to share one apartment of just 30 square metres, with three to four girls sleeping in one single bed. The vulnerable women were given employment offers 'too good to refuse' in view of their poor circumstances but once captured, were unable to escape.They were subjected to voodoo rituals and sworn to loyalty contracts under the threat of family members being killed.

The women were smuggled into Europe on boats and planes and were only told their job offer was false when they arrived in Spain. 
They were then told they would have to pay up to 50,000 pounds to be freed and could do so through prostitution.

Those arrested included two women said to be the ringleaders who had 'years of experience' in recruiting vulnerable girls. Police said they took elaborate steps to avoid detection, often moving the women from house to house.

One of the gang was arrested in Germany where he had tried to hide and five others were found to be members of the 1960s cult called 'Supreme Eiye Confraternity'.

The money earned from prostitution was sent to Nigeria via Madrid where a bar was used as the front. Seven properties were raided in Spain and Germany and 20 bank accounts blocked.
