I wasn't the best partner, - Shaquille O'Neal on his failed marriage
 
06:20
There is probably not a single person in the world who has never heard of Shaq. This giant of a man simply exudes charisma, which is why it is not surprising how many women have been around him over the years. Today, let’s talk about Shaquille O'Neal and wife, as she is the woman that has been in his life for longest.Shaquille O'Neal wifeAs you most likely know who Shaquille O'Neal is, we will not bore you with his entire biography, so let’s jump right into his personal life, particularly his (unfortunately) failed marriage. For several years (from around 1998), he had been dating woman that would one day become his wife. It was none other than Shaunie O’Neal, who is now known as the producer of Basketball Wives on VH1. But back then, she was just a film marketer.On December 26, 2002, the stunning couple tied the knot in a secret wedding ceremony in the Beverly Hills Hotel. It is interesting to note that both Shaq and his wife came into this relationship with children of their own. Shaquille had a daughter named Taahirah, while Shaunie had a son named Miles.Even before they got married, the couple had already had two children together. In 2000, they had their first child Shareef, and a year later, their daughter Amirah was born. Over the next few years, their family had grown bigger by another two children. In 2003, the world saw the birth of Shaqir, and their youngest child, Me’rah, was born in 2006.While it might have looked like everything was great, there was quite a lot of trouble in their paradise. The year 2007 saw the first big crack in the marriage of Shaq and Shaunie. That year, Shaquille filed for divorce on the grounds that his wife had been secretive about her funds and assets. It seemed rather weird, as back then, Shaq made $20 million a year just from his basketball career, and even more, if you count his many endorsement deals. Why he was so upset over his wife allegedly hiding money from him? We will never know.Despite the fact that the marriage was apparently ‘irretrievably broken’, the couple managed to put their disagreements aside, and the divorce papers were put away. But not for long.READ ALSO: Lebron James wife and kidsNot two years later, things fell apart once more, this time on the grounds of infidelity. It seemed like both Shaq and Shaunie were cheating on each other. Shaunie even hired a private investigator to unearth the details of her husband’s infidelities.The couple had a prenup, so the divorce process was not all that complicated. Nevertheless, it took the couple whole two years to finalise it, and the whole thing was rather loud and messy. The children ended up with their mother, and Shaq was required to pay a significant amount of money in child support. What is interesting, though, is that Shaquille prohibited his wife to talk about their relationship on her show Basketball Wives.A few years later, Shaquille opened up on the whole affair in his memoir, where he talked about how he had ‘too many options’ and h

Meet Thomas Fuller African slave whose mathematical ability shocked the world
 
04:39
The age-long imperialist notion that Africans were intellectually lower than their European counterparts, was proven wrong by the life of Thomas Fuller, an African slave with an incredible potential for mathematical calculation. Fuller's ability to offer prompt and accurate solutions to mathematical problems shocked white slave-masters, forcing them to reconsider their views on an average black man's worth.History concurs to the claim that the name Thomas Fuller (1710 – 1782), an African who was sold to America in 1724, is synonymous with mathematical genius. Popularly nicknamed 'Negro Tom', and described by his contemporaries as a very black man, Fuller's birth place seems to have been between what we now know as Liberia and Benin.READ ALSO: Retro: Meet the first European princess of African origin, Angela of LiechtensteinAfter being sold off as a slave from Africa at age 14 to a farmer in the United States (US), Negro Tom lived in Virginia, a place linked to why he was later called the Virginia calculator.No sooner had he arrived this strange land than the fame of his prowess in numeracy began to hit the white world. For instance, when asked how many seconds there were in a year by men of no small eminence and potentials in arithmetic, William Hartshorne and Samuel Coates, Fuller replied in two minutes: 47,304000, leaving his questioners lost in wonder and amazement.Towards his gray years, Hartshorne said of him: "He was gray-headed, and exhibited several other marks of the weakness of old age. He had worked hard upon a farm during the whole of life but had never been intemperate in the use of spirituous liquors. "He spoke with great respect of his mistress, and mentioned in a particular manner his obligations to her for refusing to sell him, which she had been tempted to by offers of large sums of money from several persons."Also, Coates, having remarked in his presence that it was a pity he had not an education equal to his genius, Fuller interjected: "No, Massa, it is best I had no learning, for many learned men be great fools."Perhaps one of his most outstanding feats was his brilliant reply to the question asked by one interrogator, "How many seconds has a man lived who is 70 years, 17 days and 12 hours old? " Fuller responded in less than two minutes: 2,210,500,800. Unsatisfied with the answer, one famous mathematician at the time approached Fuller, claiming that his result was wrong by some figures less. Fuller reminded him: "Stop master, you forget the leap year." Upon including the amount of the seconds of the leap years, the calculation of the whole in both sums matched perfectly. As Fuller's mettle in calculation continued to rise, anti-slavery campaigners thought it wise to use him in staging several demonstrations that Africans were in no way inferior to Europeans.Regrettably, he died at age 72, with little or no formal learning in writing and reading. But even if he had no academic certificate bearing his name, the life and ti

I love you Fewa!” In 2017, during World Autism Day on the April 2, Temi Otedola shared a personal story on her JTO Fashion blog about living with autism with her younger brother, Fewa. She said: “No matter what I do, I need to build my life with Fewa in mind. My parents won’t be around forever and his care and well-being will become the responsibility of me and my sisters. It is true that consideration for Fewa will always affect the decisions I make in my life. Despite this, Fewa is by no means a burden. These worries do not reduce the immense love I have for my brother who has brought so much joy and shown me the purest form of love. To quote The Bard, ‘love sought is good, but given unsought is better’. It is Fewa’s unconditional love that has shaped me into the woman I am today.”

Offa robbery: Police nab dismissed SARS personnel declared wanted - Daily Post Nigeria
 
02:22
Operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Intelligence Response Team, IRT, have arrested one of the robbers declared wanted for April 5 attacks on banks in Offa, Kwara State. The suspect, Michael Adikwu, an ex-policeman, was reportedly dismissed in 2012 by the Kwara State Police Command for allegedly aiding the escape of some robbery suspects. Adikwu, until his dismissal, was attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, of the state command. Adikwu was said to have been arraigned in court and remanded in a prison, where he spent three years. He was reportedly arrested on Tuesday in a town in Kwara State by the DCP Abba Kyari-led IRT operatives, who acted on a tip-off from members of the public. A senior police officer told Punch: “He (Adikwu) was a SARS operative at the Kwara State Police Command. He used to fraternise with robbers. “There was a robbery that happened in Kwara State about six years ago. The robbers killed somebody and escaped. The police were able to arrest those robbers. “He collected money from those robbery suspects and released them. Later, the robbers were rearrested and they confessed that he aided their escape. He was arrested, tried in an orderly room trial and dismissed. “He was charged to court together with the robbery suspects and was in prison for three years.

Should you drink garri during pregnancy?
 
04:00
A lot of Nigerians love to drink soaked garri on the daily without really thinking about the consequences. Today, we are going to explore whether there are any consequences of drinking garri during pregnancy. That way, you will know for sure if you need to stay away from your favourite drink while you are pregnant.What is garri?So what exactly is garri? Well, this word is usually used to describe a ground powdery substance made from cassava plants. The name ‘garri’ comes from a Hausa word garin, which means ‘grain’. It is actually a very popular foodstuff in Hausaland, as people enjoy it in all ways. You can have raw garri in a drink by mixing it with water, sugar and milk, chew on the garri grains or cook it. Igbo people know cooked garri as utara, while Yoruba people call it eba/teba. Even though it is a staple food for many people in Africa, consuming too much garri is not a very good thing. As cassava used for making garri contains hydrocyanic acid (in other words, cyanide), one should not consume it if it is not properly processed. In such cases, the effect of drinking garri will be mostly negative, as it might cause intestinal issues, worsening of ulcers and serious eye defects.This leads to the question… Is drinking garri good for a pregnant woman? READ ALSO: Is ginger and garlic good for a pregnant woman?Many expectant mothers enjoy drinking garri first thing in the morning or in the evenings, as its sour taste prevents them from vomiting. But should they actually be drinking it?According to Mr. Razak Adeofalade, the chairperson of the Health Workers’ Union of the Lagos State Council, drinking raw soaked garri is not a very good idea, especially during pregnancy. In addition to what we have said before about consuming improperly processed garri, it might also lead to Lassa fever. Back in 2016, many Nigerians, including several pregnant women, suffered severely from the outbreak of this fever, and some even died from it. The Lassa fever was transmitted by rats who came into contact with cassava. Thus, drinking raw soaked garri led to contracting the fever and several fatalities.If you want to avoid such fate, it is best to stay away from drinking garri during pregnancy. If you still want to have garri in your diet, make sure it is thoroughly processed. You can still eat it in the form of utara/eba, as long as you cook it properly.As pregnancy is already a very stressful time for anyone involved, you should avoid adding more stress for yourself by worrying whether it is safe to consume something or not. If you are hesitant about anything, the best way to ease your worries is to ask a doctor about it. READ ALSO: Benefits of unripe plantain in pregnancySource: Naija.ng

What we did to Biafran soldiers during the civil war – Gen Onoja - Daily Post Nigeria
 
03:32
Former military governor of Katsina and Plateau States, General Lawrence Onoja has revealed his civil war memoirs.  Onoja, 70, who fought gallantly during the civil war, which lasted between 1967 and 1970, recalled his encounter with the Biafran soldiers.  The retired war hero, said his surviving the war was a miracle of God, noting that many of his friends could not make it.  Speaking with DAILY POST, Onoja, a native of Benue State, recalled how they would send cigarettes and beer across the water to some Biafran soldiers during the war.  He said, “Surviving the war was a miracle of God. A lot of Idoma officers, who were with me in Port Harcourtwere killed. I remember when they brought the dead bodies of George Lawani (younger brother to former deputy governor of BenueState) Col Shambe, a Tiv man, Francis Oluma, a native of Adoka here in Benue. I was very young.  “One day, I just received a call from the late Benjamin Adekunle (Black Scorpion) in front of his office. I could remember vividly that what was written on the steel helmet in front of his office was ‘enter my office at the pain of death.’  “Adekunle posted me to meet my kinsman, Ignatius Obeya who was the then Brigadier Commander at Itu, CrossRiver State.  “At that time, you couldn’t connect Port Harcourt from Calabar because there no road, you had to go through Aba, which was already held by Biafra.  “So, we had to connect through Igwenga to Abak, then we connected Oron before finally crossing to Calabar.  “I reported to Brig Obeya, Rtd and I was part of the operation from crossing Calabar to Itu through a river called Ikoto Okpora. I was made a brigade major to Obeya to ensure that the three battalions in the brigade were effectually controlled and commanded to fight the war.  “We were facing a place called Arochukwu across the water at the time. The Biafran were on the other side while the Nigerian troops were on this side. It was very funny, because every morning, we would wake up and talked to ourselves across the water. The Biafra soldiers would tell us, Gowon and Ojukwu are enjoying themselves in Aburi and we are busy fighting ourselves, please give us some food, we would then throw cigarettes and sometimes beer to them across the water  “But after at about an hour, we would start shooting at ourselves. I went through all this and came out alive, I think at 70, I would say I am a fulfilled man.”

2019: Sheikh Gumi lists reasons Buhari must be removed - Daily Post Nigeria
 
03:55
Fiery Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmed Gumi, has said that President Muhammadu had performed worse than the immediate past President, Goodluck Jonathan in every area.  He said Buhari ws just a common man and wondered why people seem to be afraid just because the President had a team of illiterate fanatical followers.  Gumi said Buhari was a victim of ignorant, unemployed and senseless followership that stiffle other politicians.  Definitely, the situation now is worse. The economy is worse. Feeding is a problem; medical care is a problem. There are problems everywhere. Nigeria is down. Nobody is secure. The honest people in government have pulled out.  Look at what a governor said recently; that he was resigning his position as the Chief Security Officer because he is helpless. Another governor said we have to face the fact that there is a problem in Nigeria. We can’t deny that.  “Buhari is just a common man. He is just an ordinary one man in Nigeria. We cannot be hypocrites, hiding facts because of a man.  “Why are people shivering because of him because he has a team of illiterate, fanatical followers? We can deal with them. They should not hold us to ransom. He is a victim of this ignorant, unemployed and senseless followership.  “When politicians see that, they become frightened. We won’t succumb to that. Let’s do what is right. Put the right Nigerians to lead us, if not, we will destroy ourselves. We cannot be victims to these rascals.  “When you try to correct the president, they come out in their millions trying to abuse you. They don’t even counteract your points with knowledge. If you think abusing us will deter us, you are making a mistake.  “There is problem with and in the government. We have absolute failure in government. People are dying, things are not good. We cannot continue this way.  Asked why he had not visited the Villa to advice the President, the cleric added, “I cannot get to the other room with him because I am not his wife but even somebody who has access to the other room cannot get ideas into his head.  “How do you blame somebody who does not have access to the other room? You cannot change Buhari. He is already cast in a mentality. He believes that most Nigerians, if not all, are rascals, thieves and 419.  “He believes only his own circle are the good people. You cannot get across anything. He has castigated Nigerians in many fora and everybody knows that. He is somebody who always blames others; he does not take responsibility for anything.”

NAIJ.com exclusive: Ooni of Ife to chose new Olori from these 6 ladies, 2 are allegedly pregnant
 
04:48
- Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, is set to pick a new Olori - Six ladies are said to be contending for the vacant position, two are said to be pregnant - The monarch's estranged queen, Olori Wuraola shares on social media the collapse of their marriage in August 2017 In Yoruba land, a king without a wife loses honour and respect and that means the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, cannot stay too long without a queen to be by his side in his palace. NAIJ.com exclusively gathered that the first class monarch whose queen left him in 2017 is working seriously hard in getting a befitting replacement for his estranged olori. It was also gathered that the contest to win the heart of the king is hot as ladies of means and beauty are trying to outdo themselves. They are said to come in different shapes and complexion and also from different states. In all, NAIJ.com scooped from a source close to the palace that the contestants have been screened down to six while the king is suspected to have more affection for two out of the six ladies. PAY ATTENTION: Install our latest app for Android and read the best news about Nigeria One out of the ladies is said to be based in Canada, another is said to be based in UK, another is said to be an indigene of Ondo state while another is said to have come from Ijebu in Ogun state. Of the six ladies, the Ooni was said to have presented two of the ladies to the people of Ile-Ife at different occasions during some recent public events in the ancient town. The monarch was said to have raised their hands up while he asked his people if they would like to have them as their queen. The lady from Ondo state had a chance at being presented to Ife people some months back while the lady from Ijebu was presented to the people during the recently concluded Olokun festival that was held on Sunday, April 29. She was said to have come to the event with her father. They both arrived together at the palace in a Rolls Royce with a customised plate number. Another source close to the palace disclosed to NAIJ.com that one of the criteria given to become an olori is pregnancy as the king is not ready to marry a woman who will not be able to bear him children. So pregnancy comes first before wedding. From our investigation, two of the ladies are rumoured to be in the family way already so the king might be having a double wedding soon and it might be more because as a king, he is entitled to marry as many women as he desires. NAIJ.com gather from yet another source that a woman of 45 years who has kids was initially among the contenders for the king's heart. She was said to always come with different gifts for palace staffs while coming to see the king.

2019 election: What God will do to Buhari, APC - Prophet Olagunju - Daily Post Nigeria
 
03:52
The Presiding Bishop of Divine Seed of God Chapel Ministries, Prophet Wale Olagunju has revealed what God told him concerning President Muhammdu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2019. Bishop Olagunju said even if President Buhari decides to red-carpet the whole nation, he will still lose the presidential election. He said God has condemned Buhari to defeat already because he (Buhari) placed his Fulani people in charge of security in the country and allowed killing of innocent Nigerians on a daily basis. Speaking with the Sun, the cleric claimed that it was not in the mind of God for Buhari to rule beyond 2019, adding that the President has failed Nigerians. Olagunju said, “Let me give you my own biblical view, whenever there is injustice there will be no peace. Forget about those bishops who are saying it shall be well with Nigeria. “I am a die-hard supporter of Buhari in those days. One, to me his war against corruption is too selective. “Buhari should know that corruption is a sin against God and mankind, so war against it should be total. I expect him to restructure Nigeria to balance the equation. “He should conduct transparent censors to address the injustice that is going on in this country, create job opportunity for the youths who are roaming the streets and address the problem of tribalism in the nation, correct the lopsided appointments. “It is not in the mind set of God for Buhari to rule beyond May 29, 2019. Look at the just concluded bye-election in Oyo State, yes, PDP floored APC hands down. This is just the beginning of what awaits Buhari and his APC come 2019. “As earlier predicted by me in my prophecy of 2017 and 2018, let me be frank and declare before God of heaven and the whole earth, even if Buhari should red carpet the whole nation, Buhari and his APC will not win the 2019 presidential election. “In my 2017 prophecy, the Lord told me He would raise adversaries against him and even his own kinsmen, the Hausas would disown him. What are we witnessing now? The Lord gave me the signs through my prophecy; there is no way he can win. “Some Nigerians in their own thinking has said that Buhari is a man of integrity. Where lies the integrity in the life of Buhari when he chose his own people, the Fulanis to manage the security affairs of this nation, shedding innocent blood on daily basis, marginalising the Christians and the Igbo have no say in the affairs of Nigerian nation? Why? “To me, the thinking of those who are supporting Buhari today is upside down. Under Buhari, the government doesn’t value integrity and value system is no more.”

Babangida makes shocking revelations about origin of Boko Haram in Nigeria - Daily Post Nigeria
 
03:50
A former governor of Niger, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, has revealed that dreaded terrorist group, Boko Haram would have started in the State because the sect leader, Shekau, was living in a place called Mokwa.  He said this on Monday in Abuja during the 12th annual conference and general meeting of the Society for Peace Studies and Practice.  He said his prompt action on security reports made available to him while he was governor, stopped Shekau from establishing a Boko Haram base in Niger State.  Aliyu, however, called on government at the federal and state levels, including institutions, to read every security report they get.  He said: “If I go by newspaper reports, the Jos crisis, I understand intelligence report was written and that we should have been aware three or four days to that crisis, that it was going to happen,” Aliyu said.  “Now, if you are aware that things are going to happen and you let it happen, you can judge it in your heart.  “So, what I did was to be proactive and pre-emptive. Boko Haram probably would have started in Niger State because the Boko Haram leader, Shekau, was in Niger State in a place they call Mokwa.  “They were calling their place Daral Salam. In 1991, they were only nine people who went there and asked the Village Head for a farmland and he gave them.  “By 2007 when I went to Niger, they were over 7,000 and they have enclosed themselves, they have turned it into a territory and they were the only Muslims in their own world. But they were also engaged in armed robbery and abduction of peoples’ wives and children.  “I understand before I arrived there that two Immigration officers were sent to investigate and they became members.  “So, when I went, I read all the background information. Anytime their leaders were brought to Abuja, they would go back with more strength and they would be rewarded.  “So, I was wondering who in Abuja was doing this to them. I read and I was very lucky also that I had a proactive president then, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, who assisted me and we discovered that over 80 percent of the people that were there were not Nigerians. And they were people who will be willing to slaughter you like you slaughter goat.  “What I did was to call all my colleagues who we discovered had indigenes there and alerted them that I am sending you your own people who have ran away from you, make sure you know their movement.  “The others that were not Nigerians, we took them to the borders and we paid their transportation to leave.  “And Shekau went to Lokoja, from there, we heard he had resurfaced in Maiduguri. And I thank God that he did not start in Niger because by now, I don’t know what would have happened to the Niger Bridge.”

Barr. Iliya Ashokpa Auna, pointed out that that the Alagos, were farmers and descendants of Kwararafa, with numerous culture and tradition, different from that of the Fulanis.  He said Al-Makura was inviting war to the area by approving the citing of the cattle ranches in their areas, ading that the area was already under siege by the herdsmen.  They said that it was ‘unhealthy and a time bomb’ that was capable of causing an unimaginable crisis in future.  He said, “It will naturally be of good conscious to allocate most of these ranches to areas and places like Keffi, Nasarawa and Uke local government areas which have similar cultures, tradition and speaks the same language instead of Doma, Keana, Obi and Assakio.  “We cannot fold our hands and allow our ancestral lands be allocated and taken over in the name of ranches, neither can we allow the relative peace being enjoyed in the Alago nation be disrupted,” he said  Speaking further, he accused the governor of re-locating all the state government projects cited in the Alago nation by the previous administrations to his place and advised him to also cite the cattle ranches in his place.  “It may interest the general public to know that more than six lucrative projects worth billions of Naira were cited in Kwandare village, the governor’s ancestral home with not more than approximate population of three thousand people.  “These projects include the construction of modern market Kwandare, construction of Kwandare –Keffi road, construction of Lafia Kwandere roads, establishment of Federal Primary Healthcare Hospital, Kwandare, construction of Lafia Cargo Airport in Kwandare, establishment of Model Government Girls Secondary School, Kwandare and the recent citing of the state office headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), in Kwandare, and the governor did not deem it necessary to locate one cattle ranch in Kwandere.  “It is pertinent to also note that while projects worth billions of Naira can be seen in Kwandere, the entire Alago communities put together cannot boast of a completed project of one billion Naira, but the governor finds same Alago communities and local governments suitable for ranches,” he lamented.

Whoever speaks against us will be stoned.”  The group vowed to resist those who have paid allegiance to the Northern oligarchy from taking political control of the region.  “We know PVC is a scam, it does not work in Nigeria. It is only good for bank transactions, because the powerful northern leaders will manipulate every process to make sure their anointed loyalists are imposed across Nigeria, especially our territory being their major target.  “They just want to control our natural and human resources and then frustrate the Biafran movement but we will prove to them that part of Southern Nigeria is controlled by Biafra.”

Blind cleric shares prophecies on Ekiti, 2019 elections, herdsmen killings - Daily Post Nigeria

A renowned blind cleric, Prophet Muyideen Kasali, has shared his vision on the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti.  He also advised the Federal Government to put an end to the insurgency and incessant killings in some parts of the country before the 2019 presidential election.  Kasali, who gave the advice on Saturday, said allowing the violence to go unabated may not augur well for Nigeria before, during and after the elections.  The popular cleric, who is the General Overseer of the Hour of Mercy Prayer Ministry Worldwide (Oke Alaseyori), spoke during the July edition of the monthly Hour of Mercy programme of the church in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.  He begged politicians in the state to eschew violence and not turn the state into a battle field in the name of election, saying God will avenge such unwholesome acts on the household of whoever is plotting such.  The cleric also said the 2018 governorship election in Ekiti State would be full of surprises.  “God told me mighty men will fall for in the election and the humble shall be exalted to bring a man after his heart to succeed Governor Ayodele Fayose. This He said will happen in a miraculous way.  “Politicians must not promote violence in the coming Ekiti election. God said He would visit His anger on the household of whoever does that. The results of the election must not be manipulated. Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and other stakeholders in the election must be fair and thorough in their conducts.  “Votes of Ekiti people must be allowed to count. The electoral process must not manipulated in favour of any candidate and actual winner declared winner of the election. God told me if the conduct of Ekiti election is fraudulent, the 2019 general election will fail.  “We must be careful to do the right thing concerning Ekiti elections otherwise, it may mark the end of democracy in the country. Thousands of vision and prophecies may not work.  “President Muhammdu Buhari must take the issue of security seriously in this country. If adequate security of lives and property cannot be guaranteed, God said we should forget the 2019 elections. ”  On the killer herdsmen activities in the country, the cleric said God is set to intervene in the situation as their operations will be curtailed soon.  “Power will change hand on the activities of the killer herdsmen soon. Their sponsors and promoters will soon be fish out, apprehended and prosecuted. God said we should relax and see what He is about to do about them.  “What we do not know is that, those that are behind their operations are somewhere plotting to wreak havoc on daily basis, but it is another thing and and different people we are suspecting to be the brains behind the heinous crime they are committing”.  Commenting on the plan by the federal government’s intention to establish cattle ranches across the country to curb herdsmen/ farmers clashes, Prophet Kasali said that may not be solution as other groups in the rel

Grace, 56-year-old wife of Prophet Samuel Abiara speaks on how she ‘preserved herself’ till marriage
 
04:25
Many were surprised to hear that immediate past General Evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church Worldwide, Prophet Samuel Abiara, was getting married. He however recently got married to Grace Ojewande who said she was a vi*gin at 56 years of age. They got married in March 2018. In a recent interview with Punch, she explained how she kept herself till marriage and how she met Prophet Abiara. Read excerpts below: I have never been tempted to backslide. What has been keeping me going is that I know that there is God. Everybody in life has been faced with one form of temptation or the other but for me, I noticed everything was going on fine with me apart from the issue of marriage. I told myself that if God could perform wonders in other spheres of my life, he would do it for me when it comes to marriage; I waited patiently on the Lord and he made other things available for me. I never gave up. There is an annual programme in MFM which holds around my birthday. I remember telling God a year before I got married that I had never asked Him for a birthday gift but He should give me my own birthday gift by granting my heart desire last year. Before the end of the year my prayer was answered. I faced a lot of pressure but I had God on my side. I faced pressure to the extent that my family, friends began to tell me to marry just anybody even if the person was not a Christian. Anytime I got such advice, all I used to say was ‘okay’. I never fought them because I knew that it was borne out of the love and care they felt towards me. If they did not care, they would just be watching me. It was by divine intervention; everything was prepared by God. When I say that we met through divine intervention, it is beyond human reasoning. It is beyond human imagination. But for a divine intervention to occur, God has to use people. Was it a case of match-making through a mutual friend? We did not meet through match-making. I had initially said that there was a prophecy about 13 years ago that I would get married to a man of God; so when it happened, I was not surprised. As the Lord lives, I would. What age was Sarah when she had her child? She was in her 90s, I am just in my 50s, so what are we saying. The God that did it for Sarah then is still the same God. He does not change. Throughout my university days, I was never one of those girls that had s#x with lecturers to pass their courses. I was always adequately prepared and I could stay in the classroom till 2am before I got back to the hostel to sleep. If a lecturer scheduled an early morning class, after reading I would sleep in the classroom despite the noise and after the early morning lecture, I would return to my hostel. When God prepares a person for a certain journey in life, you would not know but he would give you the strength and knowledge required for the journey.

Professionals task Gov. Obiano on completion of Anambra Airport project - Daily Post Nigeria
 
02:56
The Association of Professional Bodies in Nigeria (APBN), Anambra State chapter, has charged the state governor, Chief Willie Obiano, to brace up and ensure timely completion of the Anambra Cargo Airport at Umuleri, Anambra East local government area.  The group expressed worry over the slow pace of work or near-absence of work on the project after the hope of the citizens of the state was raised by the governor through its flag-off.  Chairman of the body, Dr. Akaolisa Ezeagu, who stated this on Friday in Awka, regretted that the speed at which the project started had dropped significantly, urging the government not to play politics with the project.  He said the body did not believe that the project was used to score political points, in view of its enormous economic significance to the state.  “Yes, infrastructure has severally been used by politicians to bargain for power. But the concept of the international cargo airport and the way the state government went about it, initially indicated professionalism.  “If the state would have the airport, being one of the states with the highest commercial activities, it’s going to boast trade in the state.  “The concept of the project is where aircrafts are going to be refuelled and others which would be the first in the Sub-saharan Africa. There will be enough dividends derivables from the project. So it’s not something government will play politics with at all,” he insisted.  Describing the airport as a key developmental project which would sustain the state’s economy for a long time, the chairman urged the government to see to its actualization before its expiration.  He said, “As professionals, we know the cost implications of the project. It’s a huge capital intensive project which will be impossible for the state to carry out single-handedly.  “That’s why it should review the Public Private Partnership policy, because if it is monolistic PPP policy, the financial capability of the company may be dwindling for that moment. The project need to be segmented with aggregated PPP in order to actualize the dream at record time.”

He has promised to be a voice of advocacy for the correct way and path to follow in our polity,” Nwodo explained.  Asked if the forum discussed the issue of ranching, he said, “There is no reason for it to arise because it is part of the general issue that we raised regarding the instability in our country and the waste of blood.”  “We did not seek his (Danjuma’s) specific reaction on any of these points. We just wanted to bring to his attention the issues that we represent and our worry that the nation is sliding into chaos and we need him as an elder statesman to advocate as the voice of reason diplomatically to ensure that we do not go into the armpit of instability,” Nwodo added.

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki has revealed when he will leave office as the president of the upper legislative chambers.  Moves have allegedly been made by some politicians recently to impeach Saraki over his defection from the All Progressives Congress, APC, to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.  However, addressing a World Press Conference on Wednesday in Abuja, the Senate President said once the numbers stated by the constitution for his impeachment are met, he and other principal officers of the Senate will vacate their office.  He said: “Let me reiterate that neither myself, Deputy Senate President nor Speaker belong to the class of politicians that are desperate to stay in power by all means and at all costs. The day, two thirds of our members feel they do not have confidence in our leadership, we will gracefully bow out. I repeat again and again, this is not about us, but about respecting the constitution and the rule of law…”  Analysts posit that a quorum of 73 out of 109 senators is required to effect the impeachment of any principal officer of the red chamber, excluding the leadership of party caucuses.

The deification of Buhari has made many people to be afraid of criticising him - Fiery Islamic schol

- The “deification” of President Buhari has made it difficult for a lot of people to criticise him, Sheikh Gumi has said- According to him, the president is not doing enough to unite the people- He added that though Boko Haram has been tamed, insecurity has gotten worse under Buhari's governmentSheikh Ahmad Gumi, a prominent Muslim cleric, has said that things are worse under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari than when Goodluck Jonathan was in power.In an interview with the Punch, the fiery cleric said he knew the situation of things would be worse even before Buhari took over power.He said there during Jonathan’s administration, there was a lot of bloodshed but there was also a lot of progress.READ ALSO: You’re Awolowo’s reincarnation, APC excos tell Ayandele as he declares for governor“Even before Buhari came I was one of the few people that advised him that the Nigerian situation at the end of Jonathan’s regime was not the best for him.

The doctor will not be looking at the protruding bones but those standing by will be looking and wondering why the doctor is not concerned about the bones. The doctor is concerned about how to save the life of the patient.“That is how Nigeria is. When you are concerned and obsessed with what can be fixed later, you are rather killing Nigeria. That is what I see in the government,” the cleric stated.Gumi said because of the problems in Nigeria, it needs a person that can truly unify the country and not one polarising or dividing the polity. He said Nigeria needs a person who can listen and bring everybody together and also have a way of negotiating in the murky water of politics.He said his criticism of Buhari has nothing to do with him being a northerner or a Muslim but has to do with what is in the best interest of Nigerians.According to him, people are scared of criticising Buhari because of the fear. “The deification of Buhari has made many people to be afraid of criticising him because the next thing, you will be alleged to either be involved in murder or EFCC will be looking for you.

An own goal from Oghenekaro Etebo and a penalty from Luka Modric gave the Croatians victory over the Nigerian side at the Kaliningrad Stadium on Saturday night.Both goals were conceded from a set piece and the Tijain Teda midfielder is concerned on how the team could not defend properly against the Croats.READ ALSO: 5 things we learnt in the Super Eagles loss to Croatia“It’s difficult to explain. We talked about it and considering the fact that we trained on it. It’s four goals conceded now from set-piece,” Mikel said in his post-match interview “We have to keep going to try to improve on set pieces.”The 33-year-old was also quick to play down talks that some of his teammates are inexperience against the star-studded Croatian side.PAY ATTENTION: Click on link to get World Cup fixtures on NAIJ.com“I think the young guys did well but we just have to keep going and trying to get better,” he added.Former Super Eagles captain Austin Okocha has blamed Gernot Rohr for his poor tactical approach in the 2-0 loss.The veteran mifielder who starred for Nigeria in three FIFA World Cups in 1994, 1998 and 2002 also faulted the team’s poor defending which led to the two goals conceded in each half.“It was a decent first half but maturity was the edge the Croatian team had over the Nigerian team,” Okocha said on SuperSport.“The Super Eagles got done by the movements of the Croatian team in their box. The Super Eagles midfielders were not doing their best both in defending and in attack.“Eagles didn’t geg the best out of Alex Iwobi and Victor Moses because the manager was trying to accommodate Mikel Obi in the team.“The manager didn’t earn his money today. We were not a threat in the first half and I was expecting him to play three at the back, five players in the midfield and two strikers to the team a chance to get back into the game.“It is sad because I know we can do better than this.

How much is Ja Rule's worth in 2018?
 
04:45
American rappers are known for their fabulous lifestyles, and it is always interesting to know how much they are actually worth. In this post, we will tell you about Ja Rule net worth and talk about the man himself. Jeffrey Bruce Atkins who is more commonly known by his stage name Ja Rule is an American artiste that has been on the scene for more than two decades. Which is why it would probably not surprise you that he is a millionaire. Sources vary on the exact number of his net worth. The Richest say that it is $5 million, while CelebrityNetWorth claims that it is $8 million. Either way, the artiste is quite wealthy by all standards. Most of this money came from the sales albums. Back in the 2000’s, Ja Rule albums topped the charts, so he pumped them out consistently every year from 1999 to 2004. That was probably when he had amassed the bulk of his wealth. Later on, though, things went downhill. For several years, Ja went on hiatus and when he returned, Ja rule music did not impress the fans as much. What was worse, the artiste started fighting with his fellow rappers, having legal problems and even getting imprisoned several times, which definitely did not help his reputation or net worth. Apart from being a musician, Ja Rule also tried other lucrative ventures. For instance, he starred in several movies, including The Cookout and I'm in Love with a Church Girl. In addition to that, he has been involved in several entrepreneurship ventures, such as a clothing line by the name of ErvinGeoffrey along with IrvGotti, a liquor company by the name The Mojito and a line of men’s sneakers named Maven x Madden with Steve Madden himself. READ ALSO: Wizkid and Justin Bieber: who is the richest? Things would probably not be all that bad for Ja Rule if he had not gotten involved with a man known as Billy McFarland. The two met in 2015 and collaborated on creating a credit card. Their end product called Magnises ended up failing, as it cost $250 per year for no good reason other than just getting money from gullible millennials. Two years ago, the duo created their own booking agency called Fyre Media, and a year later, they decided to hold Fyre Festival, which, as you might know, figuratively went up in flames. If you do not know, basically Ja Rule and McFarland promised a paradise in the Bahamas with appearances from top musicians, but the place ended up being a dump, and artistes quickly pulled out after finding out about it. As you might imagine, people that paid big bucks for their tickets expecting to have a great time, were not all that happy when they arrived to Bahamas (and could not even return home for a while). That is why Ja Rule and his associate were drowned in lawsuits. Even though the festival was supposed to happen in 2017, the legal proceedings continued until a few months ago. The brunt of the blame fell on McFarland’s shoulders, but Ja Rule’s reputation suffered another major blow. Over the years, the famous and popular rappe

Access Bank mobile money transfer guide
 
05:18
Access Bank mobile money transfer guide is created to give you the much needed information. Access Bank has recently updated their website for Internet Banking, and now there are some new options for users. There are special USSD codes to make mobile money transfers no matter what telecommunication operator you are using. Let’s take a look at the requirements needed for these transactions by Access Bank clients as well as the easy steps you need for your money operations. Despite the fact Nigeria is developing very fast, there are still a lot of people who do not know that you don't have to go to the bank to make any money operations you need. There are many Banks in our country and almost every big bank give its clients the possibility of mobile money transfers. There are three ways you can do it: Let's talk about how to do mobile money transfer using codes. Access Bank has a USSD code for mobile money transfers both to Access Bank and other banks accounts. This code is *901#. This code opens a special menu where you can do all the operations you need. There are also a few more variants of this code for some operations. So, here are requirements for making mobile money transactions: If you are transferring your funds to another Access Bank account, you can do it in two following ways. For the first is use the transfer code *901*1*Amount* Account Number of the reciever#. For example, if you want to make a money transfer of 6,000 NGN to a person with bank account number 1234567890 you need to dial *901*1*6000*1234567890#. READ ALSO: Online survey jobs in Nigeria in 2018 To confirm the transfer, it will ask you to enter the last four digits of your BVN or 4 digits security code to accept the transfer of 6,000 NGN from your credit card. In the end, you will receive the confirmation message for successful or failed transaction. For the second method, dial dial *901#. Then press “2” to go to funds transfers. To make mobile money transfer, to access the bank account, you should press “1”. Then it will also ask you to enter the last four digits of your BVN to authenticate the transfer. Remember, that money transfers between Access Bank accounts are free, but the limitation of funds could transfer a day is 100,000 NGN. For mobile money transfers on other Nigerian banks, there are also two methods. They are almost the same as for Access bank transfers, but instead of “1” you should press “2”. For example, now you will need to dial *901*2*6000*1234567890#. In the second way of making the transfer, you also need to dial *901# and press the button “2” twice.

Yoruba youths react to claim that all land in Nigeria belongs to Fulani - Daily Post Nigeria
 
02:47
The Yoruba Youth Socio-cultural Association has reacted to the claim by the Chairman of Miyetti Allah Hore that land all over Nigeria belongs to the Fulani.  The Yoruba youths warned the Federal Government against acquiring land to build cattle ranches for Fulani herdsmen.  The President of the YYSA, Olalekan Hammed, told Punch in Osogbo on Sunday that acquiring land for building ranches for herdsmen would cause a serious crisis in the future.  He said since the Fulani had already claimed ownership to the entire nation, it would be suicidal to build ranching across the country for their cows because they will be causing a serious crisis with the people of their host communities.  The youths called on the FG to treat livestock business like other privately – owned businesses so that people from other ethnic groups would not see the government action as trying to favour the Fulani people at then expense of others.  He said, “The Federal Government should not go ahead to acquire land for Fulani people because this will cause a serious crisis in the future.  “The Chairman of Miyetti Allah has already said that land in the entire country belongs to the Fulani.  “The Federal Government should not acquire land for them in Yorubaland.  “If Fulani herdsmen want to buy land for their livestock business, they should contact state governments. If there is available land in any state, such state will give them and they will make agreements on the land.  “Livestock business is private business of individuals and the Federal Government should not use the nation’s resources to create ranches for the Fulani.  “The statement that all land in Nigeria belongs to Fulani shows that they have a hidden agenda to dominate everywhere and this can never be possible.  “So, in order to avoid a crisis which the proposed ranches by the Federal Government would cause in the future, we are advising them against it now. Nobody will cede an inch of Yorubaland to anybody for ranches.”

I warned Buhari against taking over from Jonathan in 2015 - Sheikh Gumi - Daily Post Nigeria
 
02:49
A fiery Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmed Gumi has revealed how he warned President Muhammadu Buhari against taking over governance from the immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan.  Gumi said he told Buhari that he was coming to make things worse for Nigerians due to the situation on ground when he won the election.  The cleric said his criticism of the President was done in the interest of Nigerians.  Speaking with Punch, Gumi noted that things were worse now under the Buhari administration than it was during the past government.  According to him, “Our criticism of Buhari is not about being a northerner or a Muslim . It has to do with what is in the best interest of Nigerians. A leader is like a blind man. People on the ground or on the field could see what he cannot see.  “Preachers of religions who are apolitical are the ones that are the eyes , telling the leadership what to do or where things are going wrong.  “We are like the press too, we are supposed to be neutral in our presentation of facts. Once things are not going on as they should be, it is our duty to come out to explain to the people and the government what is wrong and also proffer solutions.  “Even before Buhari came, I was one of the few people that advised him that the Nigerian situation at the end of Jonathan’s regime was not the best for him. He was going to make things worse, not better.  “If you are bringing in a patient who has broken all his limbs to the hospital , the doctor will be concerned about whether his blood is circulating and not about his broken bones.  “The doctor will not be looking at the protruding bones but those standing by will be looking and wondering why the doctor is not concerned about the bones.  “The doctor is concerned about how to save the life of the patient. That is how Nigeria is. When you are concerned and obsessed with what can be fixed later, you are rather killing Nigeria. That is what I see in the government.”

We will teach you how to make sure predictions today!Sometimes, when you are watching football, it feels like you know right away who is going to win. When the match is over, if it turns out that you were right all along, you cannot help but think about how much money you would have won if you had placed a bet based on your instincts.Other times, your confidence is destroyed when the team you have been rooting for has been utterly annihilated on the field, and you no longer feel like you know anything about football. Obviously, you would want to avoid this feeling as much as possible, but how? Well, for starters, you can check out our seven tips on how to predict a football match correctly.Match prediction: Considering the variablesWhen you are trying to make your best football prediction, it is important to consider the variables. What should you base your match prediction on? With football, one of the most important things to look out for is teams’ performance data. It includes knowing about the shots on goal, shots on target, goal differential, location of shots and ball possession of the teams you plan to bet on or against.Thus, to make a correct score prediction, you will need to gather some data on the opponents of the upcoming match. Look as far as ten previous matches for each team to achieve the best results. It can be time-consuming, but it will definitely be worth the while when you make a correct prediction.Figuring out goal expectancy for the correct score predictionThere is nothing more to this than maths. Pretty much all of the betting websites offer goal expectancy for the match, but you can also find this information on betting forums. In addition to that, there is such a thing as match previews, where the commentators can provide you with all the information you need about possible goals.Ball possession rates of both teams should not be overlooked as well. This data is also readily available. When you compare the two teams in terms of their possession of the ball, it will give you some idea about how the match might turn out.Paying attention to home advantage to make a correct predictionIt is no secret for football fans that teams play much better at home than they do away. Just compare the statistics of your favourite team for the last few seasons, and you will see what we mean. One of the reasons for that is the prevalence of the home team fans on the field, and you should not underestimate how much support of the fans means to the players.This means that you can use this knowledge to your advantage while calculating the odds.
