61  Forum / Politics / 20 Senators And 200 Reps Sign Impeachment Motion Against GEJ on: 26-11-2014 11:36AM

Twenty Senators have signed a motion seeking to institute impeachment proceedings against President Goodluck Jonathan.
The House of Representatives which commenced collecting signatures for the president’s ouster last week now has about 200 in support of the proceeding, according to Minority Whip, Samson Osagie.
The lawmakers are going for President Jonathan’s jugular, after last week’s invasion of the National Assembly by security agencies where they teargased the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal and his colleagues.
A senator who spoke to Gistmania yesterday said already “more than 20 of us have signed the motion and we are edging closer to getting 2/3.”

“We are determined to take it to whatever level because things cannot continue like this,” he said.
The impeachment notice is being collated by a Senator from one of the states of the South West geo-political zone.
Based on provisions of the 1999 Constitution, 1/3 of Senators must append their signatures to the motion before the president can be served the impeachment notice.
Consequently, 36 of the 109 members are required to activate the process of impeachment in the Senate.

67  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Is Your Range Rover China Or Original? LandWind Unveils China Range Sport [Pix] on: 24-11-2014 04:54PM
It looked like an updated version of the Range Rover Evoque at first glance during the unveiling motor show.

It has the same signature body shape, lights and radiator grill and silver logo across the front edge of its bonnet. A spitting image of the Original. However, it was indeed an unabashed copy of the hugely popular UK-designed Range Rover and guess what? it is going for a fraction of the price.
Chinese carmaker LandWind launched its £14,000 X7 at the Guangzhou motor show in China last week, a far cry from the £40,000-plus Evoque’s design.
This however provoked an angry response from Jaguar Land Rover, which may take legal action to protect its brand as they also found out that this has been ongoing for a while.

71  Forum / Politics / We Raided The APC Data Office Due To Ongoing PVC Fraud In Lagos on: 24-11-2014 10:31AM

The Department of State Services (DSS) has disclosed why its operatives invaded the data office of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos on Saturday.
Spokesperson of the DSS, Ms. Marilyn Ogar on Sunday, said the agency acted on a petition it received about some activities of the company.
The petition, she disclosed, alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission’s permanent voter’s cards (PVCs) were being duplicated by APC agents.
According to Ogar, the petition alleged that the “cloning” of the cards was with the intention of hacking into INEC’s data base, corrupting it and replacing them with the “cloned” data.
The statement said: “A petition was received by this Service about some activities at No. 10, Bola Ajibola Street, Allen Avenue, Ikeja, Lagos.
“Based on this information, the Service placed the building under surveillance; and having been convinced that some unwholesome activities were going on in the building, it undertook a raid of the premises.
“In the process, some persons were arrested while a server, three hard drives, and 31 ‘Ghana must-go-bags’ of hard copy documents were recovered and taken away for further investigation.
“It must be noted that the said location had no sign post indicating whether it was a private or government office”.
72  Forum / Relationships & Romance / Grabbing Your Woman’s BUTT In Public, Is It Disrespectful Or PDA? on: 24-11-2014 09:59AM

Ordinary people do it all the time—and the celebrities also do it. In fact, Twilight star-Robert Pattinson was spotted last Friday grabbing the butt of his new girlfriend and among my friends, some said it is PDA—and others said, it was disrespectful…
Over the weekend, the conversation continued on the topic and still there were many views which opposed each other on what this sort of act, mostly done by men actually means.
 PDA seem not to be a problem at all because men seems to be the one doing it all the time. If it is PDA, the women should also be wanting to do it too.

This is quite commendable and kudos to the team behind this. Just like Wikipedia and Google, Twitter is set to add Yoruba language to its list of translations.
The campaign to get support for the language on the social networking site commenced on March 1st, 2012 with about 24,000 tweets posted in Yoruba language and another 38,000 posted on 'tweet Yoruba day' in 2013. Twitter noticed the campaign and promised that support would come in a few months.
Meanwhile, Kola Tubosun (@baroka on Twitter), a Yoruba scholar and linguist and other brains behind this project are working on translating Twitter's standard glossary of terms to Yoruba and once this is done, Yoruba will be the only other African language asides Afrikaans (currently in beta) to be supported by the network.

There's currently heavy police and SSS presence at the National Assembly in Abuja as the House of Reps reconvene today to discuss the proposed state of Emergency extension in Yobe, Adamawa and Borno state. Some people are saying that the security operatives are there to deny the Speaker, Tambuwal, access into the complex. In fact some individuals are scaling the locked gates to enter the complex. Not sure if these ones are lawmakers.

South African coach, Ephraim ‘Shakes’ Mashaba, said his team has one aim at the Nest of Champions in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State and that his to break the jinx of not bating Nigeria in any competitive match.
South Africa have already qualified and Nigeria need to win to book their place in the 2015 African Cup of Nations. But Mashaba indicated that they will not hand Nigeria any favour in the crucial AFCON qualifiers.
“Nigerians don’t want to lose against South Africa. That alone will make this match a tough one and we also have the assignment to break the hoodoo that we always lose when we play against them,” Mashaba said before the Bafana Bafana left South Africa.
“We have to go out there positive and believe we will do well. We are defending well but there are still some things we need to do, especially in the middle of the park where we are not picking opponents tight and that will cause us problems especially against a team like Nigeria which is very good in that area.”
