Rivers State House Of Assembly Update: Free-for-All Fight in Rivers State House - Witness

♦ Majority leader, Speaker beaten

♦ Bipi made himself Speaker for a few minutes

♦ Bipi asked his cops, thugs to shoot Governor Amaechi

♦ Bipi resisted arrest

♦ Order later restored, with Speaker Amachree taking charge

The Rivers state House of Assembly in south-south Nigeria, for some minutes Tuesday, witnessed a very rowdy session after two months of adjournment as pro Governor Rotimi Amaechi legislators battled five renegade lawmakers rooting for the political opponents of the governor.

The minority lawmakers, whose agenda was to impeach the governor made the impeachment of Speaker Otelemaba Amachree and other principal officers the first priority. They thus sneaked into the House Chambers at about 8.30 am much earlier than the normal sitting of the House and smuggled in a mace.


I know Tinubu, I know Buhari, they cannot mix – Bode George

Chief Olabode George, former military governor of Ondo State and former Deputy National Chairman, People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in this interview, responds to topical issues in the polity and his party. Excerpts: President Goodluck Jonathan, the leader of your party is in the eye of the storm over 2015. How do you feel?
Nigeria has come this far because the concept of the PDP constitution has sustained democracy up till now.  Never in the history of our nation have we been able to sustain democracy from 1999 and we are now in 2013: that is talking about 14 years.  Never!

So, there is no need to pull anybody down because the man you pull down will also pull you down and so, where have you gone?  And it is there in Romans Chapter 14 that whosoever that God has given an authority, he did not get there by his own effort.  Let us support him.  He is our leader and it is our nation.

Part 2 :(Audio-Video- Photo): Obama is holding people at Guantanamo for no reason and force feeding them illegally – Michael Ratner

The men being held at the illegal Guantanamo terror prison have been in literal limbo for over 12 years. The fact that they are Muslim and kept offshore makes them an abstraction for the American people, who along with the media have forgotten about their plight. More than half of the illegally detained inmates have been deemed completely innocent, but U.S. President Obama, despite his endless “nice words” has refused to release them.

See The Great Harm Nigeria Is Doing To The North

Last week, National Teachers’ Institute announced that about 80 per cent of teachers in Northern Nigeria were not qualified to teach.  Just before that, the Federal Ministry of Education had announced the cut-off marks for admission into the Federal Government Colleges, known as Unity Schools, with the shocking piece of information that while the cut-off mark was as high as 139 for a Southern state like Anambra, it was as low as two, yes two, (out of a possible 200 marks) for pupils of a Northern state like Yobe.

According to the Federal Character Commission:
“In 1954 when Nigeria opted for a federal form of government, the concept of Quota System as a policy was adopted in the recruitment of persons into the officers’ corps of the armed forces and the police as well as in admissions into educational institutions,” to promote a fair representation and close the existing disparities among the parts of the nation. On the surface, it is a good idea, because it ensures that no single area gets into federal establishments to the detriment of other areas.

Check out 5 Things Women Don't Like To Hear

Communication is very important in every relationship…particularly, there are words, phrases and sentences that either partner does not like to hear. Generally, here are five things women hate to hear:
1. You are really getting fat: A woman knows when she is adding weight. I mean, she checks the mirror everyday, so she knows when her cheeks are getting too puffy or when her waistline is disappearing. Simply put, you don’t have to rub it in again…only encourage her to lose the weight. Don’t forget to tell her that she is always beautiful too…!

Dangers Of Sleeping Immediately After Meals

1. Burning sensation in the chest
Straight to bed after eating can increase stomach acid levels and trigger heartburn. Sometimes it can also cause a burning sensation in the abdomen, chest, and throat.

‘Why We Won't Back Jonathan’s re-election bid in 2015′ - Northern monarchs

AS the nation prepares for the next general election, a strong indication emerged yesterday that some key northern traditional rulers, who spearheaded the emergence of President Goodluck Jonathan in 2011, are not ready to back his re-election in 2015. The anger of the monarchs, we gathered, stems from what they see as a spirited attempt by the Presidency to deny an agreement President Jonathan allegedly reached with them before they gave their nod to his election in 2011.

Dad begs for forgiveness for defiling his two daughters

LAGOS — Policemen attached to Ikotun division in Lagos have arrested a man alleged to have been having carnal knowledge of his two daughters between the  ages of 10 and 13, in the past two years.
His daughters reportedly claimed to have been going through what they described as horrible experience since their mother left them for another man. Unable to resist their father, they endured until the elder girl confided in her friend’s mother, who then contacted some child rights groups.

The organisations were said to have effected the man’s arrest  at his 29, Omooye Street, Abaranje, last Saturday and handed him over to policemen at Ikotun division.
Explaining, the elder child (names withheld) said: “Our father started it when I was 11 years old. I did not know he was  doing same to my sister who was then eight years. I only got to know when I saw her blood stained undies and when I demanded to know whether she had started seeing her monthly flow, she revealed that our father slept with her the previous night. He usually crept to either of us at night  whenever he wanted to satisfy his urge.  He was the one who dis-virgined us.”


Choosing People Over Politics In Nigeria

SPEAKER of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal, has been preaching this message for a while – service to the people should be above partisan leanings. He has won few converts in his class.
The emphasis on party loyalty over service to the people who elected them is at the centre of the growing contests among the peoples of Nigeria and their representatives. Politicians think they are divined to be over Nigerians. They consider Nigerians irritants to be reluctantly faced during elections.
In the House of Representatives, there have been glimpses of possibilities of using politics to serve our peoples who have suffered neglects over the years. Politicians see politics as the veritable platform to place themselves above the people.
