Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state shocked many when he suspended Mr. Alhassan Mohammed for two months few minutes after swearing him in as Chairman, Etsako West Local Government Area of the state.Mohammed was sworn-in as the new chairman, following the death of the former chairman of the Local Government, Alhaji Hassan Kadiri, last Friday.Immediately after swearing him in today,the governor suspended him for two months..
Speaking Tuesday at the swearing-in ceremony, the Governor said:
“I have just performed the task of swearing in the vice chairman of Etsako West Local Government as the substantive chairman of the local government following the death of the chairman, Alhaji Hassan Kadiri who passed away last week Friday. “This afternoon I have performed a task with mixed feelings. On the one hand, I had the privilege of having to swear in a Chairman and on the other hand I am pained by the loss of someone who worked so hard for this party and who believed so much in his community but what made me even more sad is the fact that there were controversies as to what happened the very day that Hassan passed away.
“Some disgruntled elements whether they were masquerading as student union government officials or they were just touts and thugs, were hired by some persons to organise a protest that was almost turning violent such that they had to bring in the police and even the army to intervene to restore peace in the local government.”
“I was informed that the purpose of this protest was that Hassan on his sick bed should be relieved of his duties as chairman so that the vice chairman could take over his job. I do not think human beings should play God. Today, I am hale and hearty and I thank God for being here to be able to sign what I have to sign, this is not by my strength, it is only by the grace of God.
But what will become of me in the next hour I cannot say, I can only pray that I remain strong and healthy and I guess my story is the story of every human being.
“So for me, it is absolutely unacceptable that anyone will be so desperate as to instigate another to protest against a man that is bedridden and admitted in the hospital fighting for his life. Our jobs are worthless without life and all of us have our dates to depart this planet earth. So, for anyone to organise a protest against someone who is bedridden that he should be forced out of office so that another person will get promotion is unethical, and absolutely unacceptable and to publicly organise a protest against the sick making unprintable statements, disturbing the public peace and mobilizing people to do things that are capable of leading to riots with the possibility of even death, that, for me, is the height of irresponsibility and I do not think any civilized government will condone that.”
The Governor noted that,
“Therefore in exercise of the powers vested on me as the governor of Edo State under the Local Government Amended Acts, where there are weighty allegations against Local Government Officers, I have powers to carry out a thorough investigation on those allegations because we know for a fact that to allege does not necessarily mean to prove. Allegations must be proven before further actions can be taken.
“I do not have all the facts as to whom and who are responsible for these protests but I know there was a protest that could have easily destabilized the entire local government with serious implications for community relations. However who is behind it, though we know the characters that were on the street, at least some of them, we do not know the characters behind those who were on the street. As our people say, for every bat that is dancing on the road, there is someone beating the drum in the bush nearby. It is the drummers that we now must go for.
“The name of the former vice chairman who is now the chairman has been mentioned by different persons as being responsible for financing and instigating students who are supposed to be on vacation and who are on vacation to come back and carry out those protests in order to force the resignation or the removal of the chairman that was bedridden.
“As a matter of conscience, therefore, I have decided that these allegations have to be investigated and under the Local Government Amendment Acts, while these investigations are going on, the chairman has to be suspended. I have served him his suspension letter, he stands suspended with immediate effect and I will be announcing a Commission of Enquiry that we investigate all the issues that led to that protest. Until then, depending on the findings of the Committee, the Vice Chairman that has just been sworn in will act as the Chairman of Etsako West Local Government Area in accordance with the Local Government Amended Act”.
“This will last for a period of about two months in accordance with the provisions of the law. In our culture and religion, when you have lost someone known to us, we don’t celebrate, we don’t presume, it is a moment for sober reflection, it is a moment to remind us that all of us all candidates but we do not know when our moment will come and he who laughs today might be the one to cry tomorrow, so let nobody jubilate nor should we also go rioting because someone has passed on””
Kolo Toure is one of the most experienced defenders in the premier league and the stability he brings to the Liverpool defense when he is on the pitch is undeniable that is why Liverpool would be glad the Ivorian has extended his stay at the club.
The former Arsenal and Manchester City man pledged his future, at least for the next one season to Liverpool. Kolo was quite excited to be sealing a new deal with the club and would be hoping to help the club achieve far beyond 6th position next season. “Liverpool is a great club for me to stay at. Liverpool is going to be massive. I love Premier League football and I played all my years here and if I can finish here it would be great,” Toure recently told reporters. “My kids go to school here and they are half-English, and that is important as well. I play for Liverpool right now, and I am very happy. If it was to carry on, I’d be more than happy.” Liverpool would go through some changes in the summer but they have moved quickly to highlight Toure as part of their plans.
At the end of the new contract, Kolo Toure would be 36, a ripe age to either retire or move to the Middle East or MLS.

Tragedy struck in Ilorin, Kwara State capital, on Sunday night as a member of National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, serving in the state, Miss Yetunde Shukurat Idowu, was found on the street, dead.Vanguard reliably gathered that her last visit before she was found dead was to the popular shopping mall, Shoprite, located along Fate Road.
Consequently, concerned roommate and neighbours constituted themselves into a search party that found Yetunde stone dead on a street at GRA, Ilorin. Vanguard also gathered that the family of the late youth corps member had been contacted, while her corpse would be released, tomorrow on the insistence of the family. It was also gathered that the deceased, who was an indigene of Ogun State but lived along the popular Fate Road, Ilorin, was of the NYSC 2014 Batch ‘B’ set. Vanguard investigations, however, revealed that the corps member who went to Shoprite on the fateful day, must have been given a free ride.
Contacted, Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Ajayi Okasanmi, confirmed the incident, but could not confirm whether or not the late corps member was given a ride, saying they were still investigating.
Bruce Jenner‘s journey to being a woman is reportedly complete.
According to RadarOnline, Jenner, 65, underwent gender realignment surgery 3 weeks ago.
“The procedure involved reshaping Bruce’s male genitalia into that of a woman,” a source told the outlet. “He was very happy with the results, but didn’t realise how gruelling the recovery would be.”
“The surgery was more than eight hours long,” the source said. “In the immediate aftermath, Bruce thought he had a urinary tract infection, but it was simply the pain from the procedure.”
“Bruce is officially, and for all legal purposes, considered a woman,” the insider added. “Bruce’s kids have never seen him so happy. They just wish he would publicly start living as a woman, but contractually, he has to keep it under wraps until the docuseries [about his transition] premieres.”
Khloe Kardashian’s ex, Lamar Odom was spotted by TMZ and they asked him about Khloe and guess what he said? He said, “Khloe is my girl” and when he was asked if they still had a chance to come back together as a couple he said, “Of course.”
Khloe and Lamar were reported to have done nothing to move their divorce proceeding since Khloe filed for divorce in December 2013.
And recently, there were claims that the duo have been meeting secretly in a hotel.
Khloe who is currently dating French never stops posting pictures of messages about love and heartbreak on Instagram so maybe Lamar is correct, maybe there might be a chance they would be back together.
Well, Kim is a glam Queen and she makes money from being one.
So when she popped by Kelly and Michael and revealed that her daughter who turns two next month is into make -up so much she had to buy her own set of brushes, the world was not exactly surprised.
The KUWTK star, who has mentioned a few times in the past how North liked to play with her make up kit has been seen holding her daughter in many Instrgram posts while she gets ready for a gig.
According to Kim, North plays with her brush, puts it on her own cheeks “as if she knows what she is doing”
While this has come as a rude shock to many, with people condemning Kim for letting her two year old play with make up (which is never suitable for kids) on her face, it seems the little girl is just getting used to what she sees around her.
So what are your thoughts? Should Kim be buying her two year old daughter make up sets?

Reports on Saturday suggested that Di Matteo has been sacked by Schalke, but the club has debunked this and said the former Chelsea manager resigned from his position.
Di Matteo was made coach when Schalke were 11th in the league, after a disappointing run in the UCL, the club finished sixth and failed to qualify for UCL next season.
“Di Matteo was always thinking about the sake of the club. The reports that emerged on Sunday that we fired him were not true,” said sporting director Horst Heldt.
“Roberto had a clear vision of the club’s future. When it became obvious that we had different views on the future of the club, he always had the best interests of the club in mind regarding potential solutions.”
Apparently they didn’t see eye to eye.
“[Sporting director] Horst Heldt and I have not only looked back at the last seven months but also looked ahead at the upcoming season,” said Di Matteo.
“I laid out my plan for a potentially successful future and I pointed out which conditions were necessary for achieving our goals. Although those talks were always constructive it became clear that the club’s view differed and would be unable to create those conditions in the foreseeable future.
“For me, a new start seems to be the best solution for all parties involved because of the burden of the unsatisfying second half of last season and because I cannot guarantee that I can lead the club to the successes it expects under these circumstances.
“That is why I came to the decision to quit as the coach. I think a fresh start is best for a club and supporters very close to my heart.”
Assistant coach Attilio Lombardo and goalkeeper coach Massimo Battara have also left the club.
