For The Records: This is what Tom Ikimi said about Tinubu & the APC


1. Following my widely publicized statement made in the aftermath of the 13th June 2014 All Progressives Congress APC National Convention I took time off to reflect on the state of the party, the emerging re-configuration of the general political Structure in the country, and the visionary effects on the state of our Nation.
2. I have spent almost 13 of the past 15 years faithfully dug in, in the trenches of the evolving democratic dispensations in our country, steadfastly pursuing my conviction that for true democracy to take firm root in Nigeria we should fall in line with the model practiced in successful democracies in the world, of a party in office and a scrutinizing alternative party holding the Government to account. We all have watched with admiration how in those other countries through a process of hitch-free General Elections, the baton of leadership changes hands from time to time from one Party to the other to provide alternative policies for their people. Therefore I have never considered my location outside the ruling party, as being in an

Mercy Aigbe’s Advise To Young Ladies On Marriage

Mercy Aigbe in a new interview has advised ladies to be calm and don’t rush into marriage, stating that the most important thing is to find the right partner and not just getting married.

They should take their time before getting married. Don’t allow yourself to be pushed into marriage. At whatever age or time you get married, the most important thing is to find your life partner because the truth is that when you find the right person, you just have to be happy. It’s when you are happy that you can be useful to your society and be productive. Maybe because marriage is an institution ordained by God, it is going through a lot of things. So, I feel the devil is taking it personal to attack marriages, be it celebrity. Marital problems are not synonymous with you being a celebrity or not. I just felt it is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. We should know that marriage is a divine institution and when we say we are

In an interview with TheNETng, Limpopo crooner, Kcee reacted to criticisms by some fans regarding his style. Kcee says he's a fashion icon & those who criticize him don't know anything about fashion
"As far as I’m concerned those that are talking about my dress sense don’t even know what fashion is all about, they just want to talk, and as a celebrity, people just want to pick on you and say whatever they like. For those that know me very well, if there’s anything that I can boast of, it’s fashion, I don’t joke with it. Most of these talks actually started from pictures I posted on Instagram, and really I got the buzz I needed at that time, so I even went on to post more pictures so people would talk more, and guess what, my followers have increased drastically with all these fashion talks. I don’t even respond to them, I don’t take it serious, I’m happy and making more money, so I’m not loosing anything. If you come to my wardrobe

Samuel Eto’o ports to a new club.
Everton FC has announced the signing of the 33-year-old Cameroonian striker on a two-year deal.
