Barcelona Set To Sue Neymar Jr... See Shocking Reasons

Having seen the Brazilian join Paris Saint-Germain for €222million, the Liga club are suing him for failing to fulfil his contract.
Barcelona have announced they are taking legal action against Neymar after alleging the Brazilian failed to fulfil his contract.

Earlier this month, the Catalan giants saw Neymar depart for Paris Saint-Germain, who met the €222million release clause in the player's contract, smashing the world transfer record in the process.

Neymar has made a stunning start to his time in Ligue 1, scoring three times in his first two games, but on Tuesday Barca released a statement confirming they were suing the forward for at least €8.5m.
Barca's complaint relates to Neymar having signed a fresh deal until 2021 in October last year, with the club hoping to recoup his "renewal premium" as well as €8.5m in damages and a further 10 per cent in arrears.

The club went on to say that if Neymar is unable to pay, PSG will be expected to cover the costs.
"In this lawsuit, the club demands from the player the amount already settled in relation to the renewal premium for a breach of contract; €8.5m in damages; and an additional 10 per cent in arrears," the statement read.

"The club also asks that Paris Saint-Germain assumes the payment of these amounts in the event that the player is not able to take charge.
"FC Barcelona have put forward these actions in defence of their interests following the unilateral termination of the contract instigated by Neymar Jr, a few months after the signing of his renewal until the year 2021."

Shortly after Neymar completed his move to PSG, Barca announced that the player would not receive a €26m loyalty bonus after they accused him of breaching his contract.

It was reported that Neymar's father - also his agent - held up the move to PSG beyond the end of July in order to trigger the payment, which had been inserted as part of his new deal.
"There were three conditions [to the bonus]: one, that the player does not negotiate with another club in the last three months before July 31," Barca said at the time.

"Two, that he will express publicly his commitment to fulfil his contract.

"Three, the collection was to be made on September 1, to ensure that he did not go to another club."
After scoring twice on his home debut for PSG - a 6-2 thrashing of Toulouse on Sunday - Neymar took aim at the Barcelona board, claiming "there are directors that shouldn't be there".

"I had four very happy years there, but Barca deserve much better. I have a lot of friends there," he added.

"I hope things get better for Barca and that they go back to being a team that can compete."

He Gave Me the Best S*x of My Life - Married Woman Confesses After Cheating

A woman who has been having an affair has confessed to relationship expert, Deidre about her predicament.
Illustration Purpose
I tried to end my long-term affair but had s*x with my lover instead. I’m married with two little sons and I’m back to square one. My husband is a fabulous dad and we have been together for eight years. I’m 29 and he is 30.

He has no idea I’ve been having an on-off affair throughout our married life. I only took time out from my lover when each of my children was born. My lover is 20 years older than me and a real alpha male. He runs his own business and knows how to live.

I met him at a trade show not too long after getting engaged. He came to my stand and asked about products and prices and all kinds of things.

As I was just standing in for a colleague, I wasn’t too sure of myself but he was very pleasant and said he was sorry for taking so much of my time. Then he invited me out for a drink to say thanks.

He was so gorgeous I couldn’t say no and we ended having s*x in his hotel bed. Afterwards, I went home and got on with my life. He would call me up now and again and I would make up excuses to my fiance, then have a boozy night out followed by fabulous s*x in a four-star hotel.

I got married the following year but our secret affair carried on. He’s now married himself but says nothing has changed.

I love him so much. I do love my husband but it’s more like the love for a friend. I decided I just had to end the affair but my lover persuaded me not to and the s*x that night was better than ever. His motto is “live for the day” and so I did a U-turn and decided: “Why not?”

I don’t know what to do. I keep changing my mind. I know what I’m doing is wrong but it makes my life edgy and fun.

Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has denied promising to commit suicide if President Muhammadu Buhari returns to Nigeria alive.
Buhari flew in on Saturday after over 100 days in the UK on medical vacation.

“Mr. Fayose never said he would commit suicide if the President returns to the country.

“It is the creation of the APC. It is their style to create such falsehood,”‎ he insisted.

Discrimination, Poor Treatment of Upcoming Actors Needs to Change - Comic Actor, Saka Speaks Up

Popular comic actor, Saka has spoken up about some of the problems plaguing practitioners in the movie industry.
Nollywood actor and comedian, Afeez Oyetoro
Nollywood actor and comedian, Afeez Oyetoro popularly known as Saka, has expressed displeasure over what he describes as poor treatment of upcoming actors.

Speaking with 'Rubbin Minds' on Channels Television, the actor explained that there is discrimination between upcoming actors and old actors especially when it comes to payment.

“There is discrimination between the young act and old act, I just believe in time, things will change. Maybe because of the resources available and then because of the organisation we have that is not strong enough to protect the interest of the actor to demand better pay, but things will change, we are working on it.”

Speaking about his personality, Oyetoro who is also a lecturer at Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education said there is a huge difference between his real self and the character ‘Saka’.

Revealed: Only One-Third Of Students Who Sat For JAMB Scored Above 200

New details have emerged about the actual percentage of students who managed to score above 200 in the last JAMB exams.
Registrar, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, Is’haq Oloyede
According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, on Tuesday said 569,395 of the 1.7 million candidates that wrote this year’s UTME scored over 200 marks.

The number represents just about a third of the students who sat for the examination. The total score for the UTME exam is 400.

The JAMB Registrar, Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed this at the policy meeting of the stakeholders of tertiary institutions in Abuja.

He said 23.8 per cent of the total number of the candidates scored below 160 marks.

He said the stakeholders unanimously agreed that the minimum cut-off marks for university degree is to stand at 120.

The stakeholders, according to him, peg that of Polytechnic to be 100, College of Education 100, while National Innovative Enterprise Institution remained at 110 marks.

The registrar said the timelines for admission of first choice was October 15, while second choice would be December 15.

Mr. Oloyede urged the heads of the various tertiary institutions to set their modalities for admissions exercises as it was not the board’s responsibility.

He said that no candidate without O’ Level prerequisite would be offered admission.

“JAMB has a Central Admissions Processing System (CAPS) to aid you on the admission exercises.

“CAPS will not replace admission processes of institutions. It will enable institutions to simply communicate with JAMB in a more dynamic and timely manner.

“It will also allow for flexible cut-off marks and candidates are allowed to make their choice of institution and course,” he said.

The registrar, however, appealed to heads of institutions not to charge more than N2,000 for admissions’ processes.

In his remark, the Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, commended the board for conducting the UTME.

According to him, the stakeholders have worked together to create synergy for advancement of education in the country.

“We restate our commitment to ensure expansion of access to students in our institutions.

“To ensure equity in regard to rural and urban areas; we are committed to refocusing our curricula to meet our development need,” he said.

Mr. Adamu, however, advised heads of institutions to accommodate qualified candidates in the most transparent and flexible manner.

NAN reports that the meeting was attended by stakeholders in both public and private tertiary institutions.

BBNaija: Gifty's Romance with Nigerian Artiste Crashes Badly

Gifty's romance with Mr 2Kay has ended over reasons yet to be made public by the duo who initially started seeing each other on a secret note.
Gifty Powers and Mr 2Kay
Ex-Big Brother Naija housemate, Gifty Powers has reacted to Mr 2kay’s interview on channels TV, where he blamed horoscope for his failed relationship with the actress.

According to him, he has high regards for astrology and believes that a partner’s zodiac sign should be fully studied before going into a relationship.

Mr 2kay said “Zodiac signs are very important for us to know, if your zodiac signs don’t really match, then it doesn’t really match because some people are not matched, they are just wasting their time with each other.’’

Reacting, however, Gifty took to her Instagram account to tell Mr 2kay to check himself spiritually rather than put his frustration on zodiac signs.

She said, ‘’is funny how some people can’t maintain their relationship and yet blame zodiac Signs.

‘’bros if e no work then check yourself spiritually.’’

‘’The neck can explain the story and not the head.’’

‘’Never put your frustrations on zodiac signs,’’ she added.

How Boko Haram is Using Children as 'Human Bombs' in Nigeria

New revelation has shown how the deadly terror sect, Boko Haram is using children as human bombs in North-Eastern Nigeria.
File Photo
The United Nations Children’s Fund on Tuesday, said about e ighty-three children have been used as “human bombs” in terror attacks in Nigeria this year.

  The children, including 55 girls, were reportedly induced to commit suicide bombings after being abducted from their families by the terror group Boko Haram.

The figure represents a rapid escalation of the horrific practice and is already four times higher than the whole of 2016, UNICEF said.

Thousands of children have been abducted by Boko Haram since the group launched a violent campaign in 2009 to form a state based on its interpretation of Islamic law in eastern Nigeria, many of which have been sent back into the surrounding community as suicide bombers.

The militants have waged a campaign of abductions, assassinations and bombings against those it considers non-believers, including the government of Nigeria and other muslims, especially in the region of Borno and the regional capital Maiduguri.

“I was in Maiduguri in July, and the frequency of the attacks is incredible,” UNICEF spokeswoman Marixie Mercado told VICE News by phone from Geneva. “I was there for eight days, and there were five incidents involving two boys and four girls. The level of stress ordinary people are living through is extraordinary.”

Most of the children forced to become suicide bombers are under 15 years old, UNICEF said. The report specified that in one gruesome incident, a victim included a baby that had been strapped to a girl.

A previous report released in April by UNICEF said the group’s exact technique for inducing children to participate in suicide bombings remains uncertain, including whether the children are lied to or promised entry into heaven.

“It is unclear whether some of these children are even aware of what they are being asked to do,” the report said. “It has been difficult to ascertain if some of these children are being used to transport the devices to other locations and other active combatants or if they are being forced into a perverse death mission in exchange for promised redemption and martyrdom.”

The terror group’s use of abducted children as suicide bombers reverberates beyond the threat of another attack. Children who are released or escape from the group are normally stigmatized, facing suspicion and rejection when they return home, according to UNICEF.

Boko Haram’s fundamentalist ideology preaches the rejection of all types of western culture, from democratic elections to clothing. The word “haram” means forbidden, and the group’s name translates loosely as “western education is forbidden.”

The use of children as suicide bombers has expanded dramatically in recent years, from an initial 4 cases during 2014, to reach a total of 125 children, 95 of whom were girls.

The figures released Tuesday by UNICEF don’t include attacks in the surrounding countries of Chad, Niger or Cameroon, which would push the figures even higher, Mercado said.

Important Tips on How to Make Your Girlfriend Love You More?

Life is not a video game, but there are still some tried and true ways you can impress your significant other. Check out some tips on how to make your girlfriend love you even more than she does now!
What can make your girlfriend love you more? Here are some practical tips that will help you.

1. Listen to what she has to say: It might seem obvious to many, but some people still manage to miss this simple but crucial step. If you are having a conversation, really listen to her. Do not just pretend to listen and then make excuses as to why you did not hear her last sentence.

According to the old Russian saying, ‘women love with their ears’. However, women also appreciate being listened to. Even if she just has to vent about her annoying co-workers, pause your work and offer a sympathetic ear. We guarantee that it will not go unnoticed.

2. Compliment her: Women do love with their ears, so a well-timed compliment will do wonders for your romance. Do not focus only on appearance, although occasional mentions of how good her hair looks are important too.

Play to her strengths, compliment her on things she is most proud of. It can be a promotion, a successful meal, a win in a marathon, or anything she worked hard for. You can also try to reduce her personal insecurities by saying how much you love them and appreciate them for making her who she is.

3. Ask her advice: Almost any person loves being helpful and important. Your girlfriend will definitely appreciate it if you ask her help in resolving a difficult situation. This tip would work great if it is her area of expertise. However, it might be hard to think of what to ask the PhD of Quantum Physics. What is the meaning of life, maybe?

4. Be her support system: Every woman needs someone she can turn to when things do not go her way. In this situation, that person is you! If you see that she is upset about something, ask her about it. Nevertheless, do not press if she refuses to answer. Simply say that you are there when she needs you. Eventually, she will tell you, and you can figure it out together.

5. Do not be afraid of her tears Many people feel very uncomfortable when they see open displays of intense emotions. But if you want to be the best partner you can be, set your feelings aside and offer your shoulder to cry on.

6. Leave the past in the past: Unless your girlfriend initiates the ‘ex talk’, do not ask her about her exes. You do not need to know who she was with before. You should only care about the relationship at hand. However, when she asks you about the people you used to date, do not compare them to her. Describe them as if you were describing one of your friends.

7. Have a good relationship with her family and friends: It does not mean that you have to be best friends with all of them. Be as nice as you can, even if your views on life are incompatible. If you absolutely hate all of them, try to limit your communication with them. Do not make your girlfriend choose between you and them. It is an unfair choice, and you will most likely loose.

8. Surprise her: This encompasses all of the cutesy romantic behaviour you can think of. Leave cute notes around the house, plan surprise dates, or show up at her workplace during lunch hour. However, make sure that she likes surprises beforehand. Do a ‘trial run’ in a safe environment or just ask her outright. Because nothing is worse than an unwanted surprise.

9. Treat her: This does not necessarily mean you need to spend ridiculous amounts of money just to please her. Make her favourite meal, take her to her favourite theatre, or massage her feet when she gets home. Little things like that will work better than any words. Although occasional big gestures like a luxurious romantic trip for two will be great for the both of you.

If you live together, do not think that she has to do all the housework. Divide the chores between you, and if she works more than you, offer to take over her responsibilities.

10. Give her space: You do not have to be together 24/7. Even though it is your partner we are talking about, you have no right to control her in any way. Let her have her moments of solitude, encourage her to hang out with her friends.

A good loving relationship should be built on trust. This means that you two can have your separate lives and still love each other immensely. Staying apart for a while will do you both some good. In those moments, try to calm your jealousy. Do not look for signs of cheating if they are not there.

11. Be yourself: This is the most important part many people forget about. If she is your girlfriend, it means that she already loves you. You do not have to jump out of your skin and demand the impossible. Just be the nicest version of yourself you can be. As long as you are a decent human being, she will love you with all you strengths and weaknesses.

These are all very generic tips. If you want to know what will definitely work for your girlfriend, why don’t you ask her? There is no definitive guide to how to make girls love you. Every woman is different, so do not be surprised if your typical wooing fails.

How to Lower Your Blood Pressure Naturally (Must Read)

If you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, you might be worried about taking medication to bring your numbers down, but after reading this article, you'd be glad we shared it.
File photo
Lifestyle plays an important role in treating your high blood pressure. If you successfully control your blood pressure with a healthy lifestyle, you might avoid, delay or reduce the need for medication.

Here are lifestyle changes you can make to lower your blood pressure and keep it down.

1. Watch your waistline

Blood pressure often increases as weight increases. Being overweight also can cause disrupted breathing while you sleep (sleep apnea), which further raises your blood pressure.

Weight loss is one of the most effective lifestyle changes for controlling blood pressure. Losing just 10 pounds (4.5 kilogrammes) can help reduce your blood pressure.

Besides shedding pounds, you generally should also keep an eye on your waistline. Carrying too much weight around your waist can put you at greater risk of high blood pressure

Men are at risk if their waist measurement is greater than 40 inches (102 centimetres while women are at risk if their waist measurement is greater than 35 inches (89 centimetres).

These numbers vary among ethnic groups. Ask your doctor about a healthy waist measurement for you.

2. Exercise regularly

Regular physical activity — at least 30 minutes most days of the week — can lower your blood pressure by four to nine millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). It’s important to be consistent because if you stop exercising, your blood pressure can rise again.

If you have slightly high blood pressure (prehypertension), exercise can help you avoid developing full-blown hypertension. If you already have hypertension, regular physical activity can bring your blood pressure down to safer levels.

The best types of exercise for lowering blood pressure include walking, jogging, cycling, swimming or dancing.

Strength training also can help reduce blood pressure. Talk to your doctor about developing an exercise programme.

3. Eat a healthy diet

Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm Hg.

This eating plan is known as the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension diet.It isn’t easy to change your eating habits, but with these tips, you can adopt a healthy diet:

4. Keep a food diary

Writing down what you eat, even for just a week, can shed surprising light on your true eating habits. Monitor what you eat, how much, when and why.

Consider boosting potassium. Potassium can lessen the effects of sodium on blood pressure. The best source of

potassium is food, such as fruits and vegetables, rather than supplements. Talk to your doctor about the potassium level that’s best for you.

Be a smart shopper. Read food labels when you shop and stick to your healthy-eating plan when you’re dining out, too.

5. Reduce salt in your diet

Even a small reduction in the sodium in your diet can reduce blood pressure by 2 to 8 mm Hg.

The effect of sodium intake on blood pressure varies among groups of people. In general, limit sodium to less than 2,300 milligrammes (mg) a day or less.

However, a lower sodium intake — 1,500 mg a day or less — is appropriate for people with greater salt sensitivity, including: African-Americans, anyone age 51 or older, anyone diagnosed with high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease.

6. Limit alcohol intake

Alcohol can be both good and bad for your health. In small amounts, it can potentially lower your blood pressure by two to four mm Hg.

But that protective effect is lost if you drink too much alcohol — generally more than one drink a day for women

and for men older than age 65, or more than two a day for men age 65 and younger. One drink equals 12 ounces of beer, five ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor.

Drinking more than moderate amounts of alcohol can actually raise blood pressure by several points. It can also reduce the effectiveness of blood pressure medications.

We no longer issue visas to Nigerians – Netherlands Embassy reveals

The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Nigeria, on Tuesday, reminded Nigerians that it was no longer in the business of issuing them visas.

The Embassy’s Charge d’ Affaires, Mr Michel Deleen, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that the Embassy had since 2013 swapped its visa issuance processes in Nigeria.

Deleen said that the Embassy had since 2013 swapped its visas issuance to Nigerians with the French Consulate General in Lagos and the Embassy of Belgium in Abuja.

“Let me also advise anyone seeking visas to the Netherlands through the French Consulate-General in Lagos and the Embassy of Belgium in Abuja, to always first apply through VFS Global.

“When you first apply to VFS Global for visas to the Netherlands, VFS Global would thereafter send them to the French Consulate-General in Lagos and the Embassy of Belgium in Abuja for processing,’’ he said.

Pastor Who Has Slept With 21 Church Members Repents As He Makes Shocking Confession

A pastor who has reportedly slept with as many as 21 church members, has repented and made a shocking confession about his wrongdoing.

A report by Daily Sun SA shows that a South African pastor from Mangaung claims God is punishing him for his sins.

The 48-year-old man from Phase 2 kasi says he has slept with 21 women in his church and now his manhood won’t get up. He believes God wants him to change his ways and stop poking his congregation.

The pastor is appealing to anyone who can help him get the s*x demon out of him. He can’t reveal his name as he does not want the husbands of the married women he slept with to find out.

“My wife died three years ago. I would invite choir members to my house and sleep with them. My problem became worse when I started poking married women in my church in exchange for prayers. Now I’m in a relationship with a woman I want to marry but my manhood won’t get up. I’m afraid she might leave me for another man if I cannot satisfy her in bed,” the pastor said.

“I have been to doctors for my problem and was told I have a low sex drive. I’ve been taking pills but the problem hasn’t gone away.

“I need help from someone who can save me from my 4-5 horror. I don’t believe in sangomas as I am a man of God.”

The archbishop of the Holy Second Apostolic Church in Zion, Tefo Modise, said: “Any sin can be forgiven. The pastor needs prayer and cleansing for what he has done.”

U.S Secret Service Goes 'Bankrupt' Over Trump's Frequent Travel and Large Family

The United States Secret Service can no longer afford to pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission due to President Trump's family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast.

Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex'' Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year.

The agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it has not relented in the first seven months of the administration.

Agents must protect Trump – who has traveled almost every weekend to his properties in Florida, New Jersey and Virginia – and his adult children whose business trips and vacations have taken them across the country and overseas.

"The president has a large family, and our responsibility is required in law,'' Alles said. "I can't change that. I have no flexibility.''

Alles said the service is grappling with an unprecedented number of White House protectees. Under Trump, 42 people have protection, a number that includes 18 members of his family. That's up from 31 during the Obama administration.

The statement was signed by Samuel Tari (Nembe), Ambrose Joseph (Brass) and Mark John (Ogbia).

“Since Bruce became a senator, he has failed to look into the basic needs and challenges currently bedeviling the East Senatorial Districts, such as issues of education, as most of our students cannot access good quality education.

“He is yet to fulfil any of his campaign promises; painfully, he is an Abuja-based senator. He refuses to visit his constituency, except only once when he visited his hometown and couldn’t even stay for up to four hours.

The student leaders gave the senator a 10-day ultimatum, to amend his ways or face consistent protest and the recall process.

An Open Letter to President Buhari by a Corps Member

A Nigerian observing his National Youth Service Corp programme in the South-eastern part of Nigeria has written a public letter to President Buhari.
President Muhammadu Buhari
Let’s make Nigeria work for all Your Excellency, With high hope of a better Nigeria, which my colleagues and I have committed ourselves, we welcome you back to the country.

Permit me, your Excellency, to on behalf of all serving corps members convey our view on some critical issues to you via this very platform. I hope it gets to you.

There is no doubt that news of your return was delighting; it has and will in the days to come panacea return to political stability. Though, the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, who stood in acting capacity, did try his best to ensure the smooth running of government.

This you must have been told and it is obvious. Yes, he did try. Now that you are back, there is a need to urgently look into serious issues demanding attention.

Attending to these issues in timely manner will in no small measure douse the rising tension in the country. The issue of restructuring, the call by some certain Nigerians for self determination, the ravaging insurgency in the North East and militancy in the South South as well as the loathsome activities of the nomadic Fulani herdsmen across the country are some.

Hate speech, which has sadly become a national code, to some, is a result of perceived marginalization and disappointment in the state of affairs. They feel if their views would no longer be entertained, they should reach the Aso Villa in some other manner. Going by the recent happenings, it is important we consider the dangers of such utterances and the failure to address the concerns of such people.

Mr. President Sir, one of the reasons that got you elected was your hard stance against corruption and insecurity, especially the spate of Boko Haram insurgency. Two years down the lane, we have heard of the improvement on the both sides, but, Nigerians, I must say are not fully satisfied with regards to your administration campaign against the aforementioned agenda.

On insecurity, the ‘technically defeated’ Boko Haram insurgents’ onslaught has been technically reinvigorated. Infact, some arrested terrorists, whom were released in exchange for the Chibok girls were believed to have appeared in a video, which showed the kidnapped lecturers of University of Maiduguri, during an attack on an oil exploration released by the group recently. Asides this, killings and maiming in that region is again on the rise. Sir, this clearly shows that the carrot and stick method may not give the desired result. It is my honest opinion that hard stance is taken against the unrepentant evil merchants.

Nigerians really want to see the end of Boko Haram. On corruption, many revelations have come out through the media and the working EFCC. But, we would not do well enough if justice is not served on those whom have personalized the commonwealth of Nigerians for years. Nigerians demand prosecution of all corrupt elements, without exception.

While you were away, sir, the National Assembly adopted some certain provisions of the Nigerian constitution for amendment. Now, the bills have been passed, Nigerians await your judgement on some of the new legislative frameworks. We would want no further delay in this regard. Before you traveled, the committee of investigation you constituted against the suspended duo of Secretary to Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal and Director General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke, have completed its investigation and the report was meant to be submitted a day after you left.

Nigerians are eagerly awaiting the report and your position on these cases. Currently, ASUU is on about a week long strike while students of Ladoke Akintola University, Ogbomoso, Oyo State, have not been in school for months. The list is endless. Our education system needs serious attention. The highest investment a government can make is not in bridges, roads and dams, but, in human development. Similarly, consideration should be given to issue of increment in salaries of our parents in civil service.

The last has not been heard of the committee set up by your administration in this regard. And to be sincere, things are not what they used to be, years ago when the current minimum balance was announced. It is widely rumoured that cabinet reshuffle is imminent. May I urge you Mr. President to put capability beyond familiarity or politics. Like I argued with an Igbo friend yesterday, leadership is not an easy task, especially when it comes to serving wonderful people like Nigerians, yet, a choice of what becomes of your administration can be made by solely you. Importantly to serving corps members, I must commend the government for ensuring our monthly allowance of #19, 800 is regularly paid.

Sir, I do passionately appeal that you consider an increase in the “allawe”, to reflect current reality. Prices of commodities are exorbitantly high. Also, a reform of the scheme will in small measure aid the betterment of the programme as well as corps members. If perhaps there is a reason Nigerians, youths especially are still united to some extent today, NYSC has played a prominent role.

Hence, it needs government attention and support. As corps members and youths, we have pledged to Nigeria; it is important the country pledges to us. We #Standwith9ja, our interest and future should be important to government at all levels. We would not want Nigeria to fail us.

Finally, it is our believe that you will overcome challenges of leadership and successfully pilot the affairs of this country to a greater height expected of you.

While I pray that Almighty God help you, endeavour to building strong institutions that can take care of needs of ordinary Nigerians, including good healthcare facilities.

May God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria!

Yours in Nation-building, MOSHOOD, MUHAMMED S.

Enugu, Enugu State.

Shocking: How a Nigerian Man Posed as Woman to Defraud American of $80,000 on Dating Site

A Nigerian man has gotten himself into very serious trouble after he was nabbed posing as a woman to dupe an American.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the Police in Osun said on Monday that they have arrested a 23-year-old suspected internet fraudster (name withheld) for allegedly duping an American of $80,000 (N28.8 million).

The Police Commissioner, Fimihan Adeoye, told journalists in Osogbo that the suspect allegedly committed the crime by posing as a woman to the unsuspecting man on a dating site on the internet.

Mr. Adeoye said the victim, who was looking for a serious relationship with a woman, was however scammed by the suspect to the tune of $80,000.

He said the suspect was apprehended with the help and information the command received from an anonymous source.

“He presented himself as a woman on the internet and he succeeded in seeking the friendship of his victim who thereafter paid the money into his account.

“Although he denied collecting $80,000 but said he collected $43,000. Our concern however is the terrible image his action has given Nigeria.

“His action and crime has gone to further show that many youths are not interested in hard work again,” he said.

Mr. Adeoye said the suspect would be prosecuted in court as soon as investigation was concluded and urged the public to see the police as their friend by releasing useful information that could help in apprehending criminals.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the police also paraded a three-man gang believed to be involved in buying and selling stolen motorcycles.

Twelve motorcycles suspected to have been stolen by them were also displayed.

Randy Man Disgraced, Shaved, Thrashed and Beaten by an Angry Mob for Molesting a Little Girl

A shameless man who tried to r*pe and sexually assaulted a little girl has been mercilessly beaten and disgraced in public.
The randy man was disgraced and beaten mercilessly
A shameless man has found himself in serious trouble after he was caught allegedly molesting a little girl in Hardoi district of Uttar Pradesh, northern India. He was shaved, thrashed and beaten in the street by an angry mob.

Narrating the incident, the mother of the alleged victim said that the suspect, Mr Balbhadra, tried to r*pe her daughter outside her home in Hardoi district of Uttar Pradesh, northern India. She then claimed that he attempted to kidnap her.

The mum said: “My daughter was playing outside the house when Balbhadra tried to molest her.”

But the young girl, whose age was not reported, reportedly raised the alarm and passersby rushed to her aid. They then held Balbhadra before he was accosted by the furious crowd. The mob shaved his head and began beating him, also thrashing him in revenge.

He was then taken to a nearby police station and handed over, according to local media.

Hardoi Superintendent of Police, Vipin Kumar Mishra, said: “Balbhadra was trying to molest a minor girl, who was later caught and beaten up by the villagers.”

Police continue to investigate the claims.

Woman Cries Out After Being Dumped by Her Husband Who Travelled to the US (Photos)

A man has been accused of dumping his legitimate wife here in Nigeria after traveling to America and contracting a fraudulent marriage in America for green card purpose.

The man who allegedly dumped his Nigerian wife

Below is how Nigerian lawyer and former legal consultant at African Development Bank, Emeka Ugwuonye, who shared the photos on 'The Due Process Advocates (DPA)', reported the story on Facebook;

THE NIGERIAN CRIMINALS, WHO GIVE NIGERIA THE BAD NAME: THE CASE OF UDE UCHE UDE

Last night, a Nigerian lady, by name, Comfort, contacted me and DPA to request help against her husband who had duped her in a big marriage fraud.

The man's name is Ude Uche Ude. The gist of it is that Ude traveled to America and contracted fraudulent marriage in America for green card purpose. For his scheme to work, two women were duped. He duped Comfort in Nigeria and duped the American woman he used for his fraudulent green card.

In her lamentation, Comfort said:

"I need an advice from you Sir please help me. I married legally to a man by name Ude Uche Ude. He went to USA for in search of a greener pasture. On reaching to USA one thing led to another. He picked a lady there as a wife and he divorce me without my knowledge or consent.

"After the incident he told me to go a head and remarry that he has divorced our marriage. Okay, give me the divorce paper, never, help me to stand own my own no way. He is doing well as a Pharmacist in USA."

I decided to investigate the complaint of Comfort. (Remember you always urge me to hear the other side, against my better judgment that the other side is usually too rooguish to be heard yet). I called Ude Uche Ude. I was as polite as I could be. He attacked me.

You don't have to be a lawyer to understand that if Comfort is right, Ude has committed a serious crime in the United States. Is it not surprising that Ude would be threatening me?

The underscore the criminal conduct of Ude, Comfort queried: "He came to USA as a married man. What happened to the married?"

This is a very legutimate question. Without properly divorcing Comfort, he remains married to her and his marriage to the American lady will be void. And every immigration benefit obtained based on false marriage will be ultimately invalid.

I have provided the pictures of Ude Uche Ude for our members who may recognize him. I also provided screenshots of my sms exchange with him.

I'm fully interested in this case and apparently, this is the type man I enjoy dealing with.

Charly Boy Supports President Buhari's Stand on Biafra Agitations

Despite leading a fierce protest in Abuja to enforce President Buhari's return to Nigeria from the United Kingdom where he had been away for 104 days, Charly Boy appears to have aligned with the President on common grounds.
Charly Boy
Maverick entertainer and good governance advocate, Charles Oputa, also known Charly Boy has thrown his weight behind President Muhammadu Buhari on the issue of Nigeria’s unity.

President Buhari, in his nationwide address Monday, reiterated his administration’s zero tolerance for secessionist agitations by some ‘irresponsible’ elements.

Reacting to the speech, Charly Boy, who penultimate week led protesters on daily sit-outs at the Unity Fountain in Abuja demanding Buhari either resumes duty or resigns his position, said that he shares similar thoughts with the President on the Nigerian project.

According to him, there is a good reason for all Nigerians to believe in the unity of the country if the fundamental issues of our value erosion are addressed. He also said that Igbos agitating for an independent Biafra state over perceived marginalization by the government at the centre of the federation are missing a fundamental point; which is sitting round with other ethnic nationalities to dialogue and fashion a way forward for a better Nigeria for all.

He told Vanguard when asked his opinion on the issue of Nigeria’s unity as espoused by the President: “A lot of my Southern brothers are asking why I should believe in Nigeria. My answer is why not if we can solve the fundamental problem bedeviling the nation which is the fact that our values have been eroded.

“The youths are learning from their elders who are the political leaders. So far, we have seen elders and leaders who are enmeshed in corruption. Who are basically riff-raffs who are running around, who have managed to corner government. These are not the kind of people to move the country forward.

“I want to see a better environment for all Nigerians. In fact, it’s painful that some of our children abroad no longer wish to return to Nigeria. Even, the ones in Nigeria want to leave the country.

“If we push hard enough, Nigeria might just get better or something more positive than the present situation might happen, because we can’t continue to exist like this.

“I am an Igbo man. Even my people are ‘yabbing’ me and asking me why break a sweat over Nigeria. Let’s face Biafra instead. But I say to them; I may be a dreamer but I still believe in Nigeria.

“It is the same fight ‘Our Mumu Don Do’ movement and what the pro-Biafra agitators are struggling for. It is almost the same fight. “Biafra people are saying that they have been marginalized and that is true. Nnamdi Kanu has brought Biafra and put on the table and exposed the marginalization of the Igbos which is right.

“But ask me; Biafra or death? No, I don’t believe in that. But let us sit around a table and discuss Biafra. Yes, I believe in dialogue. That is what we need to do.

“That is why ‘Our Mumu Don Do’ is telling young people please go and be part of this nation building and don’t leave it to the old people; otherwise you will have no future in Nigeria.”

Be Very Careful of How You Treat Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB - Fani-Kayode Warns Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has been warned of the consequences of his action if he doesn't handle the issue of Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB with utmost care.
Leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu

Femi Fani-Kayode, who is a former aviation minister has warned President Muhammadu Buhari administration to treat IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, with utmost care because he is the reincarnated copy of the trio of Chief Odimegwu Ojukwu, Major Kaduna Nzeogwu and Chief Nnamdi Azikwe rolled into one.

Fani-Kayode further revealed that the assertion by Buhari that the late Ojukwu believed in one Nigeria does not in anyway validate the manner Kanu and his IPOB members have been treated und Buhari's administration for the past two years.

The ardent critic of Buhari revealed this while reacting to the President national broadcast of Monday morning.

Fani-Kayode said instead of appealing to Nigerians for patience and understanding, President Muhammadu Buhari returned home after 105 days in the United Kingdom to “insult Nigerians” and also to “threaten them.” He described the broadcast as “thoroughly uninspiring,”

He argues that Buhari should have appealed to Nigerians to be patient and understanding with him; noting that his administration has so far displayed “ineptitude and sheer incompetence” over the last two years.

Fani-Kayode wrote: "During his throughly uninspiring six minute broadcast this morning instead of appealing to Nigerians for patience and understanding and instead of apologising to them for the ineptitude and sheer incompetence that his government has displayed over the last 2 years, President Muhammadu Buhari has returned home after 105 days on his sick bed in the United Kingdom and not only insulted Nigerians but also threatened them.

He made no attempt to reach out to the people, to build bridges and to calm the troubled waters in what is clearly a traumatised and divided nation and instead he sought to intimidate and talk down on our people and his perceived enemies.

The President appears to have failed to appreciate the fact that times have changed and that he cannot impose his will on others.

He claims that his views represents the thinking of the majority of Nigerians yet he refuses to accept the idea or acknowledge the legitimacy of a national referendum.

He is meant to be a servant leader and a democratically-elected President and not a military dictator, a Caliph or a King.
If he wants to enhance national unity, which is of course a noble and righteous venture, and if he really wants Nigeria to remain one then he must desist from his dangerous and provocative rhetoric, he must treat all Nigerians like human beings and as equals, he must exhibit a much higher degree of sobriety and accomodation of contrary and dissenting views and he must display far more sensitivity, understanding and restraint in his interactions and discourse with the opposition and those that do not agree with him.

Failing that and without a quick recourse to the devolution of power from the centre and the neat and timely restructuring of what is essentially a fake pseudo-federation and a functional unitary state, the agitation for emancipation will become more pronounced, the various ethnic nationalities in this country will eventually exercise their right of self-determination and our nation will eventually break.

The fault lines are there and they are visible for all to see. We must recognise our differences, acknowledge our fears, concerns and anxieties, sooth frayed nerves, bridge the gap, make the necessary concessions and heal the wounds or we must prepare for the very worse in the not too distant future. That is the way forward and that is the only way to ensure and guarantee lasting peace and unity.

Since the President mentioned the late and reverred Chief Emeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, the Ikemba Nnewi, the former Head of State of the old Biafra and the Eze Gburugburu of the Igbo, in his morning address let me add the following.

If this great man were still alive today to witness what his Igbo people have been subjected to over the last two years under the Buhari administration he would have been the first to insist on Biafra all over again.

And the truth is that Ojukwu, Major Chukwuemeka Kaduna Nzeogwu and the great Zik of Africa, the Owelle of Onitsha, Chief Nnamdi Azikiwe have collectively resurrected in a young lion from the east called Nnamdi Kanu who he must handle with the utmost care.
What the President is unable to grasp and fails to comprehend is this: we are not children, we are not animals and we refuse to be second class citizens.

Simply put we would rather die as free men, standing on our feet and resisting evil, tyranny and subjugation than live as servile slaves and pliant bonded servants with bowed heads and on bended knee.

All Mr. President's sinister and inappropiate talk about "red lines" and his insidious threats of bloodshed and bloodflow cannot change that and neither is anyone intimidated. Such talk is reckless, dangerous, irresponsible and inappropiate.

Worse of all other than saying that every Nigerian has the right to live in any part of the country, which in itself is undoubtedly a welcome and gratifying assertion, he refused to order the arrest or threaten to cage and bring to justice those that gave the Igbo people a chilling quit notice and that have promised to unleash genocide, ethnic cleansing and mass murder on them if they refused to abide by it and leave the north by October 1st..
This strange omission and instructive refusal by Mr. President is unacceptable and it feeds into the narrative that there may well be some kind of frightful hidden agenda unfolding.

It was also a missed opportunity to allay the legitimate fears and genuine concerns of many Igbos and southerners that live in the north.
I sincerely hope that history does not repeat itself in this regard.

Finally the President expressed his concerns about the social media.

The truth is that the internet has always been the nightmare of tyrants and dictators all over the world ever since it came into existence.
This is because it is designed to ensure the free flow of information and to expose their excesses and atrocities.

Now that our President has acknowledged his disdain and hate for this medium we will increase our efforts to make life more difficult for his government through it.

We will keep them on their toes and hold them to account by utilising the social and traditional media all the more. What he wishes to hide shall be made manifest and known to all.

His morning address was shallow, insensitive, uninspiring and divisive and, judging from what I saw, I believe that he should resign, go home and take care of his health.

That would be the best thing that he could do for Nigeria and that would be the best way to enhance national cohesion and unity."

President Buhari Reportedly Poisoned by Air

Unconfirmed reports have it that President Muhammadu Buhari was probably poisoned by traducers thereby causing his extended stay in London, United Kingdom on a medical vacation.
President Muhammadu Buhari
National Chairman, National Conscience Party, Mr. Yunusa Tanko, has said that there was a rumour that President Muhammadu Buhari was poisoned through AC (Air Condition).

The president has almost spent a cummulative period of 6 months battling an ailment in London, United Kingdom and he has failed to make any public disclosure on the nature of the sickness. This has led to all manners of speculations in the alternative media especially in a period of a tough competition between the ruling All Progressives Congress and the main opposition party in Nigeria - People's Democratic Party.

Tanko went further to say he was happy that Buhari came back safe and sound. He also said he was happy on how Buhari responded to the issue of Biafra agitation.

Tanko who featured on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily however said that the National Assembly is responsible for several agitations for restructuring in the country.

Meet The Conjoined Twin Sisters Who Share a Stomach and a Heart (Photos)

People have been left seriously touched after the story of two conjoined twin sisters who share a stomach and heart surfaced online.
The cojoined twin sisters Dwi Ningshi and Anugrah from Indonesia
A cojoined twin sisters joined at the waist, who also share a heart are defying all odds and growing up fast, learning the tricks to live happily.

Dwi Ningsih and Anugrah from Garut regency in West Java in Indonesia were born joined at the waist.

The four-year-old sisters have fully formed pair of arms but only two legs and one deformed leg dangling down their waist and share same stomach.

While doctors have ruled out any possibility of a surgery to separate the twins as they share one heart, the adorable toddlers are defying all odds and growing up fast, learning the tricks to live happily.

“They love to race with their big brother. They are surprisingly very fast.

“They are very active kids and do not sit for a moment and crawl in the whole house.

“They love to draw, watch TV,compete against each other while wearing clothes and sing together. They rarely play outside the home as kids are scared of them,” says mother Yani.

Yani, 30 and her husband Iwan Kurniawan, 34, who also have a ten-year-old son named Rendy Hermawan, were thrilled to know about the second pregnancy.

However, the couple were unaware that Yani was carrying twins until the doctors find that out minutes before the delivery and performed a cesarean section.

She said: “I did not have an ultrasound done and because my first born was healthy, I did not go for routine checkups. It was only before the delivery that doctors found out that I was carrying Siamese twins and told me natural birth would not be possible.

“The first time I saw them, I was so shocked. I did not expect I was carrying twins and that they would look like that. I could not believe my eyes and wondered why were they joined together!

“When my son saw his sisters, he felt sorry. He requested us to ask doctors to separate them so he could take them into his arms.”

Still shocked with the birth of their Siamese twins, the parents consulted doctors if a surgery can separate the girls but their hopes shattered when they were told that babies share only one heart and a surgery can result in casualty.

Conjoined twins occur when the zygote, the initial cell formed by sexual reproduction, fails to completely separate.

It is believe to occur in roughly one in every 50,000 births, but just one per cent make it to their first birthday and two-thirds are stillborn.

Kurniawan said: ”After going through several examinations the doctor declared they were unable to perform an operation because the twins have only one heart and that we could lose both of them if a surgery is performed.

“We did not want to lose any of our child so we agreed with the doctor and brought them home with the hopes of raising them up happily.”

Yani and Kurniawan have gone extents, dedicating their lives to give their daughters a comfortable life. But as they are growing up, the parents, who have to depend on donations, are finding it hard to raise them up.

Kurniawan said: “It was hard for Yani to take care of the three children. I had to be there to give my helping hand which meant I could not devote much time in work. I was asked to leave.

“Since then I am employed and are completely relying on donations.

“While we hope it would be good if they can be separated but as it is not possible, we can only hope that they survive for as long as possible.

“I only want to get a job so I can look after my children and meet their needs. I cannot live off the donors forever.”

Buhari to Face Serious Internal Problems on His Return to Nigeria

Having returned to Nigeria on August 19, after over three months treatment in the UK, the president Muhammadu Buhari will have to face serious problems. As nothing has been known about his real condition during Buhari’s absence, some old wounds in Nigeria have started to revive.

The current president came back to a country whose oil-dependent economy is in complete disorder and where the Boko Haram terrorists have been continuing to escalate numerous attacks on both civilians and the military in the north of the country, The New York Times journalist points out in the recent article.

Moreover, millions of Nigerians have been keeping on suffering from a massive humanitarian catastrophe caused by the continuous war off by the war. Numerous battles between farmers and nomadic herdsmen in the middle of Nigeria have already left hundreds deceased. Thus, plentiful Buhari`s political opponents have immediately called for his resignation.

On his short Monday`s speech, Buhari mentioned those opponents who were engaged in a blood-spattered civil war years ago to make an autonomous republic of Biafra. He pointed to enemies who “have crossed national red lines by daring to question our collective existence as a nation. It is a step too far.”

The president once again reminded that the unity of Nigeria would never be negotiable. “We will never allow reckless elements to start trouble. When things get bad they just run away and saddle others with the responsibility of bringing back order, if necessary with their blood,” admitted the head of the state.

NAIJ Nigeria also reminds that Buhari`s health condition being kept in secret by the officials has already created nervousness in the country. Therefore, numerous protests from both separatists in the south and deprived inhabitants of oil communities, who just want a better life, were set off. Ordinary Nigerians also want clarity asking the current president either to rule the country or resign forever.

At the same time acting president, Yemi Osinbajo, in political experts` opinion, exercised stable and fruitful leadership, visiting southern regions in economic chaos, presiding over significant economic forums, and going to the northeast to help war victims. After Buhari`s arrival, the vice-president told that the recovery of the president should be understood as the symbolic restoration of Nigeria.

Worries about Muhammadu Buhari’s health have provoked premature speculations about the ticket for his party in 2019 presidential election. In Nigeria, there is a particular situation between the North and the South. There are informal agreements call for the presidency to exchange after two terms between a candidate from the mainly Muslim north and the Christian south. According to the Constitution of Nigeria, if the current president, a northerner, were to resign early, the vice-president Osinbajo, a southerner, would be a president until 2019.

As Nigerian political experts say, a war against Boko Haram that went downhill during his treatment in London will be the worst trouble for the president to deal with. Presently the Boko Haram insurgents have staged frequent suicide bombings in numerous camps for displaced people and city markets. They also commit permanent attacks against military convoys and soldiers. And though the current president promised to stop the war as soon as possible, it seems nobody believes he can ever do it.

Another issue that Buhari will have to challenge is the fight on corruption. Nigeria is considered one of the most corrupted countries on the planet. However, in spite of numerous attempts to fight it, the crimes keep on flourishing. For instance, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission of Nigeria recently traced almost 500 million US dollars’ worth of cash and real estate from the oil minister under the preceding administration, Alison-Madueke. According to the commission's conclusion, the ex-minister purchased a 13-bedroom home, penthouses, and the whole apartment buildings through shell companies.

Additionally, Nigeria`s current president must also fix the nation’s collapsed roads and many other infrastructural objects that make the life of ordinary citizens miserable. Moreover, Buhari should do his best to calm down irritations in the oil-rich south, where people for years have been insisting that their poor communities do not get a fair share of oil income.

Therefore, the continuing absence of the president has reopened many old wounds in the country. They are not as dramatic as might seem to be. However, these problems must be tackled immediately.

But will 74-years old, weak president be able to find strengths to do that? The challenges he is facing now are severe.
