Nigerians should expect more investment in Education – President Buhari

President Buhari today in Paris, France, assured Nigerians that allocations to the educational sector will be improved as revenue increases, describing the sector as a major engine for the development of any country.

The President, during an interactive session with the Nigerian community in Paris, said the about 5 per cent allocation to the sector was inadequate to propel the desired growth for the economy, pointing that United Nations target of 26 per cent remains ideal.

“We are currently reviewing investments in the entire infrastructure of the country like road, rail and power, including investing more in education. We will certainly need to do more in education,’’ he said.

President Buhari enjoined Nigerian elites, both at home and diaspora, to do more in contributing to the educational sector of the country, expressing surprise that the elites tolerated the fall in standards and structures of educational institutions despite oil windfalls in the past that would have made all the difference.

“I am doing my best now to utilize our resources to develop the country,’’ he said. “ We are already getting results on road, rail and power. My frustration is that some people still have plenty stolen money stashed in Europe, U S and other countries.’’

President Buhari said return of stolen assets in some safe heavens will bolster the administration’s current effort of investing more in critical infrastructure that directly impact on the livelihood of Nigerians .

The President said the war against terrorism will be reinforced with new weapons and hardware for the military, while the challenge of abduction and kidnapping in some parts of the country will receive more attention with better gathering of intelligence.

“We campaigned on three key issues; security, improving the economy, and fighting corruption, and we have not been controverted by anyone that we have not recorded some results,’’ he added.

‘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.

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.
