Osun political thugs will be dealt with - Pres. Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday assured the people of Osun State that the August 9 governorship election would be peaceful.  He dared political thugs to attempt to disrupt the election and risk being dealt with by security operatives, who would be deployed in the state for the election.

"Being a Second Wife is Not a Crime"' - Nkiru Sylvanus

While trying to debunk rumours that she got married and is now the second wife of a popular politician in a new interview with Punch, Nollywood actress, Nkiru Sylvanus made this statement. Do you agree with her?
“I had an interview on the television where I was asked if I could be a second wife for any reason and I said yes. You can never say never because anything is possible, life is full of surprises. Being a second wife is not a crime, it is not something you do and get condemned for life. If you find the right person and he is married and willing to take you
into his home and you are willing to accept the challenges, then why not give it a chance. So if I find myself in that situation where I find a man that I love, appreciate and want to spend the rest of my life with and he is married, I would follow my happiness.
