A video of Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole went viral yesterday where he told a widow that “if she is a Widow, she should go and die”.
Apparently the Governor had ordered the woman’s goods be seized but she begged him to save her only means of Livelihood as she is a widow and that was when he blasted her.
Well it looks like it did not go down well with many as outspoken former Aviation Minister, Femi Falana-Kayode and actress, Bianca Johnson have shared their opinions.
2  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Peter Okoye Finally Reacts To Story That His Family Is Against His Marriage on: 29-11-2013 11:11PM
Peter Okoye in a new interview with Encomium has denied the stories that his family members were not in support of his marriage to wife Lola.
Or that that was the reason his elder brother Jude didn't attend his wedding.
In the chat, Peter said:Is there any iota of truth in the tale that your family didn’t support the wedding?
That is very far from being the truth. I saw some of those reports and was full of laughter. Everybody is just laughing because the reports are like comedy to us. Honestly, there is no iota of truth in the rumour. But it’s one of the prices you pay as a celebrity, so I remain focused.

How would you describe your wife?
Honestly, she is a wonderful woman. She has virtually all the qualities that every man would want in his ideal woman. She’s caring, loving, God-fearing, hard working – just name it, that’s my wife for you.

What are the sterling qualities that endeared her to your heart?
I just said that now. No man will not want to spend the rest of his life with a woman that possesses the qualities I mentioned.

Why was the wedding delayed till now despite you having all it takes to be a husband?
The truth is that we have always known that the wedding will come up. We just didn’t want to rush things unnecessarily. We waited for the right time.

Entertainers are not used to keeping one woman, how is your own case going to be different?
Entertainers don’t keep one woman? I don’t think so.

Paul and Peter Okoye, popularly known as P- Square, are unarguably the hottest musical sensation in Africa at the moment, and since doing things together comes naturally to them, many had expected that they would get married on the same day.
But Paul was left behind when Peter got married to traditionally to the mother of his two sons, Lola Omotayo, on the 17th of November, 2013.
According to reliable sources, when asked why he did not also perform the traditional marriage of Anita Isima, his fiancee and baby mama on the same day, Paul disclosed that the main reason Peter got married before him was that the two women are from different tribes and different traditions and ways of doing things.
“Anita is Igbo, while Lola is Yoruba. The traditional marriage has to be in her (Anita’s) hometown. But we might be having a big, white wedding together”. Paul said.

6  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Kogi State University, ASUU Disown Arrested Lecturer Accused Of Being A Boko Har on: 29-11-2013 07:01AM
Following the arrest of Dr. Mohammed Nazeef Yusuf, a lecturer at Kogi State University, Ayingba by the Department of State Service, DSS over alleged involvement with the Boko Haram sect, the university authority has dissociated the institution from the activities of the lecturer and the alleged plan to carry out terrorists attacks in the state.
Also, the Kogi State University Chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities declared that the suspect was never an active member of the union.
ASUU Chairman in the university, Dr. Sylvester Ukwuteno said contrary to report from the other suspects that Dr Yusuf was a strong member of the organization, the suspect has never been an active member of ASUU.
According to him, “the only link between him (Dr. Nazeef Yusuf) and the association was because ASUU’s due is deducted at source from lecturers’ salaries. And he, like everyone else has his dues deducted to make him an automatic member. But he’s not a strong member as it has been widely claimed. I cannot remember the last time he attended any of our meetings”.
Also, the institution in a statement signed by the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Hassan Isah admitted that though the suspect, Dr. Mohammed Nazeef Yusuf who was recently paraded by Security agent is a lecturer in the institution the governing council and the management of the school do not know anything about him beyond his duty as a lecturer
“The Governing council and the management therefore condemned and dissociated themselves from all criminality and terrorism in whatever shape or form, where ever and whenever it exist.”
The VC noted that it became imperative to respond to the situation as the alleged involvement of the lecturer has elicited a lot of enquiries from friends, well- wishers, students, stakeholders and sister institutions.
“In view of the negative interpretation and implication for our hard-earned reputation, and the damaging impression on unsuspected members of the public, the institution dissociates itself from all criminal and criminal activities including those of the dreaded Boko Haram sect.”
He assured that security has been beefed up in the school with enough surveillance to curtail any attack from gunmen “In the meantime, the governing council and management of the institution have strengthened security and increase surveillance on campus with the view to stamp out all criminals and criminalities, including Boko Haram activities. We wish to assure the general public, particularly all our students, their parents and guardians, that the campus is safe and there is no threat whatsoever to human lives and property.
“Members of the university community are advised to go about their normal life as the university has adequate security measures to deal with all criminals and criminal activities on campus whenever and where ever they are detected”, he said.

8  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Japan To Turn Moon Into Giant Solar Power Plant on: 28-11-2013 03:34PM
Shimizu Corporation, a Japanese architecture and engineering firm,
 has a plan to effectively turn the moon into a giant solar power plant.
It proposes building a massive collection of solar panels (a "Luna Ring")
 6,800 miles long by 12 miles wide on the moon's surface.
That's certainly a heavy-duty construction job for human beings, so Shimizu
plans to get the work done with robots, only involving humans in supervisory roles.
Once complete, this hypothetical plant could continuously send energy to
 "receiving stations" around the globe by way of lasers and microwave
This idea gets around two major hurdles for solar power, as there is no weather
 or darkness to curb electricity production on the moon.
If operating in ship-shape, Shimizu says it could continuously send 13,000
 terawatts of power back to Earth.
By comparison, it took the United States all of 2011 to generate 4,100 terawatts
 of power.
It's big thinking that we're skeptical will ever see fruition, but we like where Shimizu's
 coming from.
It believes that "virtually inexhaustible, non-polluting solar energy is the
ultimate source of green energy that brings prosperity to nature as well as
 our lives.
Shimizu Corporation proposes the Luna Ring for the infinite coexistence of mankind
 and the Earth.

A 17-year-old girl, who has been accused by her sister-in-law of stealing N3,000 from her handbag, died in Kubwa, FCT, on November 26, 2013, Tuesday, after taking substances suspected to be poison.

The girl was allegedly beaten and had her hair shaved with bottle before being stripped unclad by her sister-in-law at NEPA Road in Kubwa.
A police source at Kubwa said the sister-in-law blamed the teenager in taking her money, shaved off the girl’s hair with broken bottles and stripped her unclad on the street after torturing her.
“The woman was furious because she accused the deceased of always pilfering from her handbag every day and out of anger, she beat up the deceased, scrapped her head with broken bottles and stripped her unclad publicly,” the source said.
According to eyewitnesses, the teenage girl, who could not bear the disgrace, ran into the kitchen and drank what they called rat killer as a way of proving her innocence.
The girl was said to have been taken to Kubwa General Hospital where she was confirmed dead.
Tony Olofu, the Assistant Commissioner of the Kubwa Police Area Commander, confirmed the incident, saying the suspect is in police custody at Kubwa where she is being interrogated.
The case will soon be transferred to FCT Criminal Investigation Department (CID) after the results of autopsy and other medical reports on the deceased.

13  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / South African Students' Rage As They Meet Question On Rape At Exam on: 28-11-2013 12:52PM
Students in South Africa were outraged by a question they faced at the national school-leavers’ drama exam which asked students to direct a rape scene.
They were asked to describe how they would get an actor to maximize the horror of the rape of a baby, using a broomstick and loaf of bread as props.

According to the reports, anti-rape activists and the author of the play, Lara Newton, have said the question was“insensitive”.
The official statistics says that South Africa has one of the highest rates of sexual violence in the world.

Newton’s award-winning play Baby Tshepang is based on the actual rape of a 9-month old by her mother’s boyfriend.

However, South Africa’s Education Department has defended the question’s inclusion in the paper.
They commented the situation,

“Nowhere is it expected of the candidate to have to literally describe the actual act of molesting a nine-month-old baby.”

According to the statement, the question is aimed at assessing the pupils’ concept of using metaphor as a theatrical technique.

However, it is evident, some students were really disturbed by the question.
One of them said,

“Everyone was in shock that we were asked such a question. It was so gruesome and we were not sure how to answer it,” South Africa’ Times newspaper quotes a Durban pupil as saying.

It was reported that many students interviewed were too embarrassed to repeat what they had written in their answers.

“While drama is all encompassing, we never expected such a question or topic. This is sickening to say the least,” one pupil, who asked not to stay anonymous.

The Federal Government has issued a one week ultimatum to the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, to call off the ongoing strike.

The union embarked on the action on July 1, 2013 over government’s refusal to implement the 2009 agreement both parties reached.

Acting Minister of Education, Nyesom Wike, while briefing journalists Thursday morning in Abuja made the position of the FG known.

DailyPost gathered that government has also given Vice Chancellors of Universities to declare the jobs of the striking lecturers vacant as from Wednesday, December 4.

Recall that the Union, last week, at the end of the ASUU NEC meeting, resolved to take a definite position on the government’s offer and the strike after meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan this week.

However, no date has been fixed for the meeting yet.

18  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Money Laundering: Trial of Sule Lamido's Sons Will Go On – EFCC on: 28-11-2013 11:20AM
The trial of the sons of Jigawa State Governor Sule Lamido, Aminu and Mustapha, accused for money laundering, will proceed despite the governor’s refusal to defect from the People’s Democratic Party to the opposition All Progressives Party.
A senior official of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) confirmed it in the night of November 27, 2013, Wednesday. The EFCC stated once again that the arrest and investigation of the governor’s children over funds amounting to N10 billion had no political undertone.
The operative said the agency did not want to be seen as playing politics with a serious issue of money laundering, for which the suspects had already made some statements that would lead to prosecution at the appropriate time.
“This is a pure case of money laundering and does not have anything to do with the governor’s position on PDP or APC and we do not want any political meaning to be given to the matter, which is being investigated,” the EFCC official said.
He further reminded that despite being released on bail, Aminu and Mustapha would soon be made to return for questioning in connection with the matter.

20  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / TRAGEDY: Man On Fire Enters Church, 2 Die on: 28-11-2013 10:58AM
A bizarre fire, which burst out in one of the churches of Ocean City, Maryland, Washington area, USA. The tragedy left 2 people dead, including the church’s longtime pastor, and a woman critically injured.
The fire started on Tuesday when a man — his clothes and body on fire — entered St. Paul’s by the Sea church in a section where services are provided to the area’s needy.

According to a witness, somebody tried to pull the man out and then the building caught fire from there.

Fire and police officials said, the blaze, possibly helped by the use of an accelerant, spread quickly.

A 56-years-old man, who caused the fire, was identified as John Raymond Sterner. Sterner was found dead inside the building by firefighters.

The church pastor, the Rev. David Dingwall, was found unconscious on the second floor of the church amid “heavy smoke and heat conditions,” authorities said. Unfortunately, he later died at a hospital.

One woman was critically injured, police said.

It’s not yet clear how Sterner came to be on fire.

The Rev. Canon Heather Cook of the Episcopal Diocese of Easton told The Baltimore Sun that a church parishioner and volunteer at the food bank that operates out of the church rectory were preparing to open when the man came in, screaming for help. “I’m heartbroken. I’m sick,” church organist Shirley Hailey told WJLA.

The church members are mourning this week over the terrible tragedy.
