Corruption: PDP tells President Buhari to demand the immediate resignation of Rotimi Amaechi as the Minister of Transportation

The Peoples Democratic Party has asked President Buhari to demonstrate his much-talked-about integrity by demanding the immediate resignation of Rotimi Amaechi as the Minister of Transportation.

The party, in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, alleged that the minister, as the Director-General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation, is using government funds to campaign for the President. The PDP made the call barely 24 hours before the commencement of campaigns ahead of the elections. It claimed that Amaechi’s action demonstrates the height of corruption.

“The party says Amaechi, as Minister of Transportation and Director-General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation is using government funds to campaign for Buhari. PDP notes that this action of Amaechi demonstrates the height of corruption both in Buhari administration and the person of his campaign DG,” the statement read.

The party further wondered how Amaechi will compare Buhari to the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar, who it claimed had been generally accepted as the next President of Nigeria. It alleged that Amaechi has lost touch with Nigerians.

The statement added, “If Amaechi has not lost touch with reality, how would he be comparing Atiku Abubakar, who is widely celebrated by Nigerians across board, due to his integrity and proven competence in managing resources, to a failed President Buhari, who Nigerians know is responsible for the grinding hardship, hunger, starvation and escalating insecurity in the nation in the last three and half years?

How can Amaechi compare Atiku Abubakar, a known and tested nationalist, who has become the rallying point for national rejuvenation and reawakening to President Buhari, who has sunk the nation deeper into the sea of nepotism, divisiveness, dissensions, and agonizing despondency?

How can anyone compare Atiku Abubakar, an epitome of wealth creation and youth empowerment to President Buhari whose tenure will only be remembered by Nigerians for hardship, unemployment, job losses, wealth destruction, economic frustrations and destruction of institutions that engender good governance and freedom?

‘I stand for sex before marriage because I don’t want to end up with something inadequate’ – Actress Queeneth Agbor

Nollywood actress, Queeneth Agbor, has revealed she is fully in support of sex before marriage, as she doesn’t want to end up with a man who is not sexually active.

Speaking on the importance of sex in a relationship during a recent chat with Sunday Scoop, Agbor said,

“To some people, sex is associated with stability because it increases the bond and maintains a level of stability. As for me, I believe that sex is overrated in a relationship though I stand for sex before marriage with a good reason. I need to test my ‘goods’ so I don’t end up with something inadequate. Cheating is a no-no for me. However, in a relationship, getting to know your partner doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with sex. I prefer to bond mentally and intellectually. I know my lover for who he truly is. Sex gone bad can actually end a relationship before you even get to know the real person.”

Governor Ajimobi pays condolence visit to the family of Iyalode of Ibadan who died two weeks to her 94th birthday

Aminat Abiodun, the iyalode of Ibadan, Oyo state capital, died in the early hours of Saturday Dec 8th barely two weeks to her 94th birthday on December 24.

Abiodun was the sole female representative in the 10-member advisory council of the olubadan of Ibadan. Following the death of her predecessor, Wuraola Akintola, Abiodun was installed as the 13th iyalode on October 19, 2007.

Abiola Ajimobi, Oyo state governor, has described the late Iyalode as a “titan” and “colossus who has made her mark in the sand of time”.

He said: “Let me on behalf of the people and government of Oyo State extend condolence to the nucleus family of Mama. By tradition and relationship, Mama was my mother.

I knew mama since I was like nine years old and she was an exemplary mother, very elegant, very beautiful. She had presence both in character and in carriage. She epitomised mobility. She epitomised elegance and consequently became the queen of Ibadanland, if you like Queen of women if that is accepted. She rose through the ranks and paid her dues. She was successful in all ramifications.

So for me I think it’s the passage of a titan of Colossus who has made her mark in the sand of time. I think for me it’s a great loss but let’s take solace in the fact that she lived well, left good children, left me, left us.”
The governor said the ancient city of Ibadan will forever remember “the irreplaceable” Abiodun who will be buried on Sunday.

‘Stop using my pictures on sourvenirs, I am not God’- Pastor Adeboye tells his members

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has warned members of his church to desist from using his pictures and that of his wife, Foluke, on souvenirs for sale. According to him, he is not God and can never share in God’s glory.

The clergyman gave the warning on Friday December 7th at the ongoing annual Holy Ghost Congress of the church holding at the Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. He said it had come to his notice that some members of his church have started seeing him as God that they use his photos and that of his wife on any of their materials. He appealed to them to stop it as he does not want to incur the wrath of God

“It has been brought to my notice that people are using my picture and that of my wife on key holders, calendars, books and other souvenirs. This is wrong and anyone found with such materials should be arrested and reported to the police. I am not God. I did not send them. I have nothing to do with those materials. I am an ordinary man of God. God will never share his glory with any man. I am not ready to die. Devil, I am not ready to go.

If at any time, God is sensing that a man is trying to share his glory, the man is dead. If you find anyone selling anything whatsoever with my picture or my wife’s, report them to the police immediately.” he said
On why he was forced to publicly call them to order, the clergyman said that recently a woman bought a key holder with his picture and his wife’s inscribed on it and gave it to her child and the child began to eat the key holder and in no time, the picture pasted on the key holder removed and surprisingly what they found was the picture of another tele evangelist, Prophet T. B Joshua.
