BBNaija Star, Gifty Powers Married For The Second Time
Gifty Powers got married to her baby daddy, as confirmed by the reality show star in an interview she granted Vanguard.
 
Gifty Powers who disclosed why she is keeping her baby daddy identity a big secret, told Vanguard’s Potpourri that she is now married for the second time to him.
 
She said:
 
"Well, a father is one who takes full responsibility of his child, who adores his child, who makes sure that an “ant” never reaches his child’s shoe lace. So, to answer your question, I’m keeping the identity of my daughter’s father (my husband) because we always protect those we truly love,”
 
“This is my second marriage and yes, it is official and ordained by God. Well, my first marriage was never official (which I thank God actually).The truth is, everyone is trying to make a name just by playing unnecessary stunts available on ground.

"Now, everyone is entitled to their own point of view whether ugly or stupid, but that doesn’t matter to me. I’ve got lots on my plate, especially now that I have a daughter in my life, that’s my number one priority and it will always be. But I will cross millions of miles if any soul drags my daughter’s name or tap her unnecessarily, whether knowingly or unknowingly, she’s my life. So any talk is pointless.”

PDP Reacts As Buhari Says 'Snatch Ballot Box, Pay With Your Life'

PDP Reacts As Buhari Says 'Snatch Ballot Box, Pay With Your Life'
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday reacted as President Muhammadu Buhari threatened those plotting to snatch ballot boxes during the general elections.
 
President Buhari had made it clear that anyone who tries to disrupt the electoral process, will be doing so “at the expense of his own life”.
 
Reacting, PDP said the remark was a direct call for jungle justice which was aimed at directing the attention of the public.
 
In a statement signed by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP accused the Buhari’s Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC) of plotting to trigger widespread political crisis to derail Nigeria’s democratic process by plunging “our nation into anarchy.”
 
PDP said, “Buhari’s threat to the lives of Nigerians, at the opening of APC’s national caucus meeting in Abuja today, is a direct call for jungle justice and attempt to divert public attention from their closed session where details of their dastardly plot to truncate our democratic process will be perfected.

“We do hope that this call by President Buhari is not camouflaged for the fake soldiers mobilized by the APC to shoot at innocent Nigerians, snatch ballot boxes and execute their rigging plans on the election day. It is indeed a license to kill, which should not come from any leader of any civilized nation.

“The underlining fact to the above is that President Buhari and APC leaders, upon getting to their voting constituencies last Saturday, realized that there is a nationwide rejection of Buhari’s re-election bid, and this has thrown them into a panic mode.

“President Buhari must, however, bear in mind that his resort to threats and scaremongering will not deter Nigerians from coming out en-masse to vote him out of office on February 23.

“We are aware that President Buhari, who had earlier boasted that nobody can ‘unseat’ him, is bent on using every dictatorial and tyrannical act to truncate the process of a free, fair and credible election.

“Intelligence available to us shows that the Buhari Presidency has directed the leadership of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately reshuffle the Resident Electoral Commissioners (RECs) in order to deploy compromised officials to manipulate the electoral process in President Buhari’s favour, as they did with the police shortly before February 16.”

Manchester United
Premiership club, Manchester United have reportedly received a whopping £3.8BILLION takeover bid from Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.
This comes after United chiefs were last year seen spending an increasing amount of time in Saudi Arabia over the proposed takeover bid
According to The Sun, the Saudi royal family, who are worth a staggering £850bn, are hoping to tempt United's current owners the Glazers into selling the club before the start of next season.
Sources close to the Glazer family claim that they are against selling the Premier League club but an offer that big could certainly tempt United's owners.
One of the insiders also added that the £3.8bn valuation from the Saudi Prince is dependent on whether or not United can secure Champions League football next season.

The woman gave birth after falling into a coma
 
A teenager who didn’t have a clue she was pregnant fell into a coma and woke up with a baby.
 
Ebony Stevenson, 18, initially suffered from a splitting headache in early December last year but then suffered a series of seizures and was rushed to hospital where doctors put her into a coma.
 
She then woke up on December 6 to discover she had given birth to her gorgeous baby Elodie.
 
All the time the student was pregnant she never missed a period, didn’t develop a baby bump or had morning sickness.
 
Ebony told the Star on Sunday: “Waking up from a coma to be told I had been pregnant and had given birth to a baby girl was overwhelming to say the least.

“Meeting my baby was so surreal. It felt like an out of body experience.“I didn’t think I even wanted kids – at least not for another ten years – and I never expected to be a young mum.”
 
Doctors discovered Ebony had a rare condition called uterus didelphys where the person has two uteruses. Elodie had grown unnoticed in the one towards Ebony’s back.

Sheree and Ebony’s grandmother Geraldine initially looked after the newborn for four days while Ebony was in the coma.
 
When nurses first presented Ebony with her baby she thought they had made a mistake but after Sheree explained what had happened mother and daughter soon bonded.

Why I Opposed My Wife's Third Term - Tinubu
Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and wife, Remi
 

National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has revealed how some influential members in the Lagos APC Governor’s Advisory Council, GAC, upturned one of his critical decisions not to return his wife, Remi, for a third term in the Senate.

Tinubu, explained that the “coup” was hatched prelude to the conduct of the last primary elections across the 245 wards of the 20 Local Government Areas in the state, last year.

He said this while addressing party leaders and members at a stakeholders’ meeting, prior to the postponed Presidential and National Assembly polls, at Police College, Play-Ground, Ikeja in Lagos.

Tinubu, who was reacting to the allegations  of imposition levelled against him, said some of his decisions are also being influenced by leaders in the party.

He said: “Let me tell the story of how Bayo Osinowo, APC Senatorial candidate for Lagos East emerged (displacing incumbent Senator Gbenga Ashafa). I was still thinking on the way to go for the primaries.

“I told them, we will not follow the third term syndrome. No candidate will go for a third term which also affected my wife Remi. I did not want her to go for a third term. But Prince Tajudeen Olusi, leader of the GAC and some members led the coup against that decision. I told them I wanted my wife back at home but they insisted that I must listen to them. And after much argument, I conceded and said I will obey you. That was how Remi got the APC third term ticket.

“Now coming to the East, (where Ashafa was also bidding to go for the third term and eventually lost out to Osinowo) I was contemplating on who could be our candidate when Kaoli Olusanya led leaders from Ikorodu to my house saying they have resolved to send Bayo Osinowo to the Senate for the East Senatorial District and that was it.”


He said the clarification became necessary following series of allegations of imposition of candidates levelled against him in some quarters, particularly, from the opposition parties.

To achieve victory at the poll, Tinubu announced the setting up of a Special Taskforce to take public complaints, mobilization, and monitoring of the exercise.

Tinubu, also urged the special taskforce, executives of the party to embark on final reconciliation of all aggrieved members through series of meetings in order to have a consolidated electoral victory across board.

My life is in danger - Kogi deputy governor, Simon Achuba cries out

My life is in danger -?Kogi deputy governor,?Simon Achuba cries out
Kogi State Deputy Governor, Simon Achuba, on Sunday raised the alarm that his life is in danger following the withdrawal of his security details allegedly on the order of the state governor, Yahaya Bello.

Achuba made the allegation at a press briefing where he said he was shocked after returning from a trip to his village where he had gone for the Saturday’s scheduled elections to find the gate to his official residence empty without any of his security personnel.
He said, “I was surprised to see that all policemen attached to my house had been withdrawn. I then put a call across to the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Busari, who also expressed shock and promised to give the matter an urgent attention. After about an hour, I called him again but he refused to pick my call. I sent a text message to him and up till now, he has not got back to me.”
The deputy governor called on the acting Inspector-General of Police to intervene so as to maintain law and order in the state.  He also called on the Federal Government to intervene in the affairs of Kogi State whose citizens, he claimed, had been subjected to hardship.

“When God gives you the privilege to rule a people, the people should not be taken for granted. You don’t have to use force for your policy to scale through if they are popular and people-oriented,” he said.  He said that the point of departure between himself and the governor was in the area of urging the government to do things according to the will of the people to which no one had been listening.

When contacted, the Director-General, Media and Publicity to the governor, Kingsley Fanwo, said it was not the state governor’s responsibility to post security details to the deputy governor.
