MTN Nigeria Foundation Funds More than 50-patients To India in 2 Years

The MTN foundation, which gets its funding from one per cent of MTN’s profit after tax, has sponsored and supported over 50 patients from Nigeria with heart related diseases and other ailments to India for treatment in the last two years.
Portfolio Manager, Health, MTN Foundation, Mr. Abasi Ebong Udobong, dropped the hint in Lagos at a party organised by MTN for the recent batch of successful patients that just returned from India on a medical trip, courtesy of MTN Foundation. The Foundation bears the total cost of medical bills, including cost of visa, return tickets, feeding, accommodation and logistics of the patients throughout the duration of their treatment in India.
According to him, the foundation had several cases of heart related diseases, with some of them having holes in their hearts. Over 20 of the successful patients were celebrated by MTN at the party, with several of them giving their testimonies and thanking God and MTN for intervening in their health cases.

It pays to be corrupt in Nigeria

There is no denying that a corrupt judge is worse than an armed robber. Last week’s soft-landing for two judges accused of corruption by the National Judicial Council shows that we are not serious about the fight against corruption. Even though the NJC had been commended for its action, the action of the NJC deserves no commendation. By recommending two judges — Justice C. E. Archibong of the Federal High Court, Lagos and Justice T.D. Naron of High Court of Justice, Plateau State — whom it found guilty of compromising their sacrosanct offices, for “compulsory retirement”, what the NJC had done was to tell the judges to go home and enjoy the proceeds from their corruption. A corrupt official should be summarily dismissed or recommended for dismissal, not sent on “compulsory retirement.” Retirement presupposes that the judges are entitled to all their benefits after a meritorious service, but dismissal means that their tenure had a question mark.

One Russian, three Ukrainian and two Indian sailors were taken when gunmen stormed the Armada Tuah 40 miles off the coast of Bayelsa state on February 17.

See Photo: Burkina Faso’s Bancé Has A Message For Nigerian Soccer Fans… ‘Forget About The Face’

Aristide Bancé, Burkina Faso’s centre forward was the b*tt of jokes in Nigeria not because he tormented Nigeria’s defence when both side clashed during the just concluded AFCON 2013 in South Africa but due to his looks. The FC Augsburg of Germany striker was often given uncomplimentary remarks by Nigerian fans but the dreadlocks wearing player has posted a picture of himself on Instagram purportedly targeted at his naysayers with the caption ‘Rich & Famous Forget About the Face People!’
Maybe his latest effort will get the ‘haters’ off his back or just fuel their disdain for him. Only time will tell.

Judge suspended after groping six women

If you are a judge you get off pretty easy even after committing serious crimes.  The New Jersey Supreme Court has sanctioned a judge from the Superior Court of Ocean County, who groped six women at a party.  The court suspended judge Marquis Jones for four months without pay and ordered him to complete an alcohol treatment program.
 A complaint said the 53 years old, married father of two children, inappropriately touched five female probation officers and an employee of a pub in Toms River during the party organized by the Probation Association of New Jersey.  The judge, through his lawyer, said he was unable to remember what happened because he was drunk. Jones denied any "intentional, inappropriate" touching.

Jones earns N26 Million Naira a year.


Most of the African countries that receive foreign stars as ambassadors of a noble cause use them to raise money worldwide. Politicians in United States sought celebrities to boost their campaign funds. Not in Nigeria, politicians use workers’ salaries and funds that can be better used to relieve the pain and suffering of their people to pay foreign celebrities, failed and former politicians to grace local occasions even for a few minutes. 

It has never made sense that owner of ThisDay, Mr. Obaigbena, that could not pay the salaries of his workers, many times paid former presidents and celebrities just to peep at Beyonce’s boobs and grace various occasions in Lagos, Nigeria. Not to be outdone, Gov. Fashola also arranged for Ms. Kardashian to drop by and just say “Hey Naija”. Are these people star struck or suffering from some deep underlining complex?

Officials of the Lagos State Taskforce on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit stormed the market as early as 4.00a.m  and shut it because it was filthy.

Why spend five hundred million naira on a thanksgiving party? Why allocate 4 billion naira to a white elephant project in Abuja. Why lobby, and then accept the Permanent Secretary position in the Bayelsa State civil service when you knew you were not qualified for such an appointment? Why engage in a public quarrel with your predecessor over a public land deal in Abuja? Why lie to the nation about your medical condition and secret treatments overseas. Why the bombastic statements, and the supercilious attitude? What’s the immoderations that have come to define you?” The questions are almost endless. But this has been the ways of Patience Faka -- the wife of President Goodluck Jonathan.
