Melaye Admits To Hurling Abusive Words At Tinubu’s Wife [Read Full Statement]

Featured Image

Senator Dino Melaye, the lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial district, has finally admitted to using abusive and threatening words at Senator Oluremi Tinubu, the senator representing Lagos central, during the senate’s closed-door session on Tuesday.

Melaye, however, said he was willing to apologise if he had wronged any individual in the matter.

“If there are instances that I am not a super human being, if there are instances where as a human being I have reacted negatively I am also ready to be apologetic about it. But in this particular instance, I have never mentioned anybody’s name, I never even used insolent languages.

In a press release, Melaye, said:

It is my sincere pleasure to address you this morning. It wouldn’t have been necessary to address you on the subject matter am about to address you on but it has become expedient that despite the fact what I am addressing you transpired in the executive session of the senate but because of the misinformation by people of inundinate ambition out there. It has not only become expedient but it has become very, very paramount that I address you on this subject matter.

On Tuesday, the 12th of July, we had an executive session to discuss basically on the issue of forgery case in court and when I stood up to address and I want to say that on my honour as a christian on my honour as a father and on the oath of my office as a senator of the federal Republic of Nigeria I am telling you the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

I have never being a coward, I will not start an apprenticeship programme now on how to become a coward. Whatever I say anywhere I can boldly repeat everywhere. When I stood up and I made my submissions that day in the senate, all I did was to pacify my colleagues and asked that the case in court be withdrawn because already there is a resolution of the senate that the rules of the senate were not forged and since there was a resolution of the senate that the rules of the senate were not forged then I said all those who have gone to court should go and withdraw their names from court and that if at the end of the day those who refused to withdraw their names from court we should penalised them by suspending them, I said that. MelayeBut I did not use any insolent abusive degrading or mannerless language. So there was no reaction from any of our colleagues as regards my presentation.

After I spoke so many other senators spoke and I did not mention the name of any senators while I was making my presentation, unfortunately senator Oluremi Tinubu got up and was recognised to speak and immediately she started speaking she specifically mentioned my name even when in my presentation I did not mention anybody names I only appeal to the sensitivity of my colleagues and asked them to withdraw their case from court and reminded them already that there was a resolution of the senate that the rules were not forged. But because of reasons only known to senator Oluremi Tinubu she got up the first thing she said was that she’s being harrassed in this chamber by senator Melaye. I kept quite at that point, she went ahead to say that why will he come here and be threathening senators and there was a large chorus from senators how, when, where, senators reacted. At that point I was still very calm, she got up again and said that this thug must be tamed at that point I got up and I told her that she is very stupid. The next statement from her is that you are a dog.

She called me a dog and when she called me a dog I stood up and I reacted and I told her that this is not Bourdillon and that she should look at my face, I am not one of those senators who normally come to prostrate to them in Bourdillon. And I told her I am from Kogi State, I am not from Lagos State and that there would never be a day that I will come to you for political assistance. This were my words and she went on shouting dog, thug. I want to tell you gentlemen of the press for every reaction there must be an action. When I got up to address my colleagues she was not the only senators there. If I had used insolent language or foul languages you will know the type of senators we have they would have reacted and some of them would have even addressed you guys by now to say Dino insulted us. But because she acted in the manner she did not one seantor stood up in her defence when I was tongue lashing her.

Even the senators from Lagos was there, Ashafa was there he didn’t stand up fro his seat. It is not true that anybody circled her because there was no need to. I did not leave the spot where I was sitting I didn’t get up from my seat. So there wouldn’t have being anybody to but somehow she got falsehood sold to the saharareporters. Nobody amongst those of us who spoke there actually talked about impeachment. Infact the issue of the presidency or president was not the subject matter we were discussing on how the senate can also come together and solve the forgery case.

There wouldn’t have being any need to even discuss about Buhari or the Presidency but because of deliberate wickedness and satanic manifestations they brought in the issue of presidency to garnish their aim and purpose. Today, I read on the pages of newspaper that in Nation to be very precise that senator Borrofice calling me names. Unfortunately, this expatriate senator, absentee senator called senator Borrofice was not even in the Chamber and he has not being in the chamber for the past two months. He was not in the chamber, I was surprised maybe he has celestial powers to understand what happens in his absence. For him to open his gutter and pass insolent languages on me. I have never being a coward and I will never be, I fight my battles alone and I stand by it and there is nothing I say anywhere that I cannot repeat everywhere. If there are instances that I am not a super human being, if there are instances where as a human being I have reacted negatively I am also ready to be apologetic about it.

But in this particular instance, I have never mentioned anybody’s name, I never even used insolent languages but because they are here to heal from the wound of defeat of the election of the senate president and because of my key role in this exercise where she and her husband called me severally to appeal to me to backoff Saraki and I say I will not backoff Saraki, I will continue to support Saraki, Saraki is my brother, he is my friend and I will continue to support him and this will not change today, it will not change tomorrow, it will not change in this four years of our stay in the Senate. Every human being can have ambition, it is not a crime to be ambitious. saraki had the ambition of becoming a Senate president and God endorsed it, president Muhammadu Buhari is an ambitious person that is why he contested for the presidency four times before God answered him. I am an ambitious person, I event want to be president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria very soon. So it is not a crime to be ambitious. So if you go through the papers today there has been a lot of misinformation, a lot of lies, a lot of blackmail, planted stories just to discourage the person and personality of Dino Melaye but I want to assure everyone that I remain resolute in my compaternal convictions, I will continue to stand by the truth, I will continue to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, I will continue to be a voice to the voiceless and in reaction I heard that Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu said my political career has come to an end.

I want to say that Tinubu is no God. I fear only the God almighty, I fear no soul I only respect souls. So far my political journey to the House of Representatives and the Senate have no political, financial or moral contribution of Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the God who has brought me this far is mighty, strong and enough to take me further, what God has given me no man can give and what God has given to me no man can take. I want to assure you that this is the true story of what transpired. It is falacious, malicious and a lie that I said I will impregnate Mrs Tinubu. Biologically it is even impossible to impregnate Mrs Tinubu because she has arrived menopause.

If you also look at that statement for those of us who are intellectually mobile, how can you say you want to beat somebody and at the same time you want to impregnate the person if you juxtapose the two is there any correlation, does it make any logical sense. So, when they planted this falsehood they did not think deeply. I want to say that I will continue to uphold the culture the tradition, the values of the Kogi West Senatorial district and I will not abuse it. But it is absurd for a woman to look for her colleague and call him a thug and a dog when he has not personally addressed you. unfortunately I did not have the anointing to be quite when you are being insulted I replied accordingly.

I repeat there is no reaction without an action. If she did not call me a dog or a thug there is no way I would have responded. I responded I have no regrets for responding and defending my person and if tomorrow or in the next 1hour, Senator Tinubu again called me any name I shall equally respond accordingly.

Obama’s Middle East Misadventure And The Rise Of Radical Islam – Majeed Dahiru

Obama’s Middle East Misadventure And The Rise Of Radical Islam

The Obama administration’s foreign policy in the Middle East has contributed immensely to the rise of radical Islam and worldwide jihadist movements. His policy of appeasement and compromise, which is characterised by hesitation, indecision and contradiction, has only succeeded in further complicating the already complex situation of the predominantly restive Muslim Middle East region.

This piece was written by Majeed Dahiru. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

Historical Fault Lines

This historic region is fraught with deep fault lines along religious and racial divides. The root of the three leading monotheistic faiths of Judaism, Christianity and Islam is traceable to the region. These differences have often times found expression in economic and political struggle, with conflicts and wars as consequences. The region has witnessed bloodshed and massive loss of lives over several centuries. The Middle East region is richly blessed with oil mineral resources which have attracted a lot of foreign interest, particularly from the Western powers of Europe and the United States of America. In order to have access to the oil mineral resources of the region, estimated at 266 billion barrels of proven reserves of crude oil, Western powers have often applied a realist foreign policy in the region, which has left a deep feeling of suspicion and mistrust on the part of the predominantly Muslim population against the predominantly Judeo-Christian Western nations.

The Palestine-Israeli Conflict

President Barack Obama’s greatest foreign policy misadventure in the Middle East has been his inability to move the Arab-Israeli peace process forward. Due to his irregular policy initiative, the peace process has collapsed almost completely.

Palestinians have been reduced to a fully subjugated people and their territories occupied, with the rapid expansion of illegal Jewish settlement in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, which constitutes a clear violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention, leaving the Palestinian people without any hope for statehood. His inability to carry out, conclusively, a fundamental shift from the traditional Washington-Tel Aviv foreign policy with the aim of a quicker and amicable settlement and final resolution of the Palestinian issue, in line with his initial intention, has only succeeded in reducing the people of Palestine to hopelessness, while also alienating the Israelis who are traditionally the most trusted ally of the US in the region.

Consequently, the United States has lost its leadership role in the Middle East and a very defiant Israeli government might, under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has been unleashed unchecked on the Palestinian people. Currently, over 380,000 Israelis are living in the occupied West Bank with another 375,000 living in East Jerusalem. The Israel-Palestine crisis is a major source of the hate doctrine and radicalisation against the West, because it feeds the emotion and sentiment of a Judeo-Christian Western conspiracy against Muslims. The earlier the peace process is back on track and quickly perfected, the sooner the wind of radicalisation will wane and the World will become a more peaceful place. The failure of the entire international community, led by Europe and the United states, to peacefully resolve this ugly situation it partly created and bring to an end the human tragedy that is Palestine today, has deepened the animosity against the Judeo-Christian West throughout the Muslim world. This situation, more than any, has provided ideological weapons for radical Islam. However, President Barack Obama has only left the people of this region hopeless by his non-decisive and lack of clear leadership approach to the issues.

The Obama Complication

Senator Barack Obama got elected as the president of the United States in 2008, on the promise of CHANGE. As a senator, from Illinois, Chicago, he opposed the invasion of and war in Iraq. This narrative resounded well before the American people who were war weary and clearly disenchanted. The war, from the beginning, was unpopular both at home and abroad. Approximately 60 percent of Americans opposed the war based on the fact that the premise for war was false. Saddam Hussein was alleged to be in possession of weapons of mass destruction. However, several independent and credible sources rightly disputed this claim. The war in Iraq further strained the already frosty relationship between the United States and the Muslim world.

President Obama proposed a new approach to the American-Middle East relations, which would be based on mutual respect and cooperation aimed at assuaging the feeling of suspicion that has existed between both peoples. He quickly set a time-table for a phased withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq and faithfully attempted to implement it. President Obama has since been steadfast in his no boots on the ground policy. He showed enthusiasm for a quick and just resolution of the Israeli-Arab peace process and consistently pushed for a two state solution along the 1967 line of armistice, living harmoniously and peacefully, side by side. This show of tactical deviation from Washington establishment foreign policy, earned him praise and accolades worldwide and particularly from the Muslim world. He was awarded, early in his administration, the Nobel Peace Prize in clear appreciation of his peace efforts.

However, the Nobel Peace Prize proved to be his greatest undoing. As a recipient of the distinguished award, he tried hard to live true to his reputation and, in the process, his duties as the Commander in Chief of the World’s most powerful nation has suffered greatly. In pursuit of peace, he has allowed both the state and non-state actors to take the advantage of his pacifist policies to undermine vital US strategic security and economic interests. Severally, he failed to act quickly and decisively, to arrest the situation the region found itself in. His hurried withdrawal of troops from Iraq and his no boots on the ground policy were taken too far and have proved to be a tactical military mistake.

Bush and the Iraqi Question

For the records, the invasion and war in Iraq in March 2003 (Operation Enduring Freedom) was and remains unjustifiable. The war was believed to be a personal project of vendetta of President George Bush, backed by the Republican power establishment. A war based on false intelligence on the possession of weapons of mass destruction remains one of the greatest foreign policy blunders of the United States of America in modern times.

However, that President George Bush fought a wrong war does not mean that President Barack Obama should not fight the right war and save the world from forces of destabilisation. The United States has a tradition of standing up to defend oppressed people everywhere in the world. This great nation has, time without number, sacrificed for others to live. If President Franklin Delano Roosevelt wasn’t decisive during the Second World War, and refused to put boots on the ground, the consequence of a Hitler dominated world could better be imagined. If President Bill Clinton did not swiftly intervene in the Balkans, many more Muslim Bosnians would have been slaughtered.

Political Islam In the Mix

Another contentious issue that has contributed to the rise of violent and radical Islamic movements is the inability of political Islam to find space and expression through a democratic process. Political Islam is a system wherein aspirations by Muslims to be governed by Islamic law, the sharia, can be achieved through an electoral and people-centered democratic process. To an average Muslim, Sharia law is the answer to all human problems. A utopia of some sort. It is believed to be a divine law, infallible and without which, its total application, one’s faith as a Muslim is considered incomplete. These are the reasons why Islamist groups enjoy mass appeal and legitimacy among a broad section of Muslims. A good example of a democratic Muslim country is the Islamic Republic of Iran. However, it is regrettable to note that Western powers have often conspired with their traditional allies in the region to frustrate political Islam out of the fear of having a radical regime at the head of a legitimate state. Recall that the Front for Islamic Salvation (FIS), an Islamist party was set to take power through a free and fair democratic process in Algeria in 1990, but the elections were cancelled and a coup by the military ended the entire process. This began a prolonged armed conflict which claimed thousands of lives. Several years later in 2005 when Hamas was overwhelmingly elected by the Palestinian people, the western world refused to recognise or negotiate with the Islamist party, despite being democratically elected. When Islamic rule cannot be achieved through a peaceful democratic process, the only other option will be to resort to violent agitation and radical jihadist movements.

Violent crackdowns and brutal suppression of Islamic political groups like the Muslim brotherhood, have given rise to radical and violent Islam as an alternative. A people have the right to be governed by whatever form of government they wish.

The Coup In Egypt

Recently, President Barack Obama stood by and allowed a Muslim Brotherhood government that was freely elected to be overthrown through a military coup in Egypt. Leadership and membership of the Justice and Freedom Party, the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, were hounded, humiliated and jailed, with the party itself proscribed. The Muslim Brotherhood is the most influential political Islamic movement in the whole of Arabia.

The destruction of this movement has unleashed an army of radicalised Muslims whose beliefs and aspirations couldn’t find expression in a democratic process and have resorted to violent agitations because it has become evident to them that Islam is not compatible with popular democracy. The Egyptian experience further exposed the hypocrisy and contradiction of the Obama foreign policy initiative. A dictator has replaced a dictator in Egypt in a clear reversal of the democratic gains ushered in by the Arab Spring.

President Obama should have prevented the overthrow of Mohammed Morsi, the first democratically elected president of Egypt and allow the democratic process to endure because Islam is very consistent and compatible with democracy. The fall of political Islam in the World’s most significant Muslim country has given rise to violent and radical Islam as the only alternative because it has reinforced the widely held belief in the Muslim world that the West is fighting Islam.

Syria and the Sunni-Shia War

The civil war in Syria and conflicts in Iraq and other parts of the Levant, are largely proxy wars between the Sunni power block, led by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Shia power block led by the Islamic Republic of Iran. Following the invasion of Iraq by the US and its coalition partners in 2003 and the fall of the Arab Sunni regime of Saddam Hussain and the subsequent rise to power of a Shia regime under the leadership of Prime Minister Ayad Allawi, an insurgency arose from some Sunni groups who were dissatisfied with the new arrangements. Sunni Iraqis largely felt marginalised and oppressed under the new Shia leadership. The militant jihadist organisation known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) was a major participant in the Iraqi insurgency. The group was originally founded in 1999 by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a Jordanian, under the acronym of Jamaat al-Taw id wa-al-Jihad (the organisation of monotheism and jihad). In 2004, about the time of the beginning of the Iraqi insurgency, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi pledged alliance to al-Qaeda and the group became known as AL-Qaeda in Iraq and carried out massive insurgency activities against the US occupation forces and their Shia regime ally in Baghdad.

Following the outbreak of conflicts in Syria, the group was revitalised and metamorphosed into ISIL, which has become a major fighting force against the Iranian backed Shia regime of Bashar al-Assad. The group also made a strong attempt towards Baghdad to remove the government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, a Shia who was having a serious political struggle with the Sunni leadership of Iraq. It will be observed that this group is most active in countries with Iranian backed Shia governments, Iraq and Syria. This group which is currently led by Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi is enjoying legitimacy among some Sunni Arabs and non-Arabs alike because of the theological differences between the two sectarian divides.

The Iran US Nuclear Deal

The Obama administration through some of its policies in the Middle East, particularly towards Iran, has alienated its traditional Sunni allies in the region, especially Saudi Arabia. The nuclear deal with Iran is one of such policies. It is unclear how the deal will prevent Iran from becoming nuclear armed because the interpretation of the deal in Tehran is different from the Washington narrative, with each side claiming victory for its national security interests, which are known to be diametrically opposite fundamentally. This has created unease in the region on the side of Sunni Arab regimes. The thought of any attempt to tilt the balance of power in favour of Iran in the region is precipitating more crises. The timing was also not very good. Iran is the champion of Shia Islam. It exports both political and radical Shia Islam which threatens the power base of Sunni regimes in the region, particularly Saudi Arabia and other Arab Gulf countries. The power struggle between these two regional rivals—Saudi and Iran, has escalated into proxy wars at different theatres throughout the volatile region.

The al-Assad Regime and Obama

Another clear failure of the Obama policy is its inability to end the civil war in Syria. This Levantine space is a majority Sunni Muslim country that is however ruled by the Assad family from the minority Allawi Shia community. The ruling dynasty was founded by Hafez Assad, when he became the president of Syria in 1972. He was succeeded upon his death in June 2000 by his son, Bashar al-Assad. However, the continuous stay of Bashar al-Assad in power is counterproductive to achieving lasting peace in the region. The al-Assad regime has crossed every red line set by President Obama. He has used chemical weapons, barrel bombs and indiscriminate air bombardment of civilian targets, including women and children. Yet, each time, President Obama has refused to act decisively. He has refused to impose a no fly zone on al-Assad and degrade his airpower. Rather he has only ordered a targeted airstrike on the Sunni insurgent group, ISIL. This is why ISIL has expanded its activities beyond their traditional aim of confronting Iranian backed Shia regimes in the Middle East to a global jihad against the West. They see the West as collaborating with their enemies.

This largely explains the efficiency of the radicalisation mechanisms of the world’s deadliest terror group and their ability to rapidly recruit members from every part of the globe. The regime of al-Assad should give way in Syria as a starting point for lasting peace. To end the scourge of ISIL and other terror groups, Syria must be freed from Assad and given back to the people of Syria through a transparent and just democratic process. A democratic process will afford the world another opportunity to test the viability of political Islam and reduce the propensity for radical jihadist movements as alternatives to achieving Islamic rule.

“For me he is an important player. All the players know that I see the pitch during training to choose my starting eleven.

“John Terry is captain, when he plays and when he doesn’t play. He is the captain always.”

Conte also confirmed his involvement in Terry being handed another contract extension, which was reported at the time to involve a heavy reduction in salary.

He added: “John Terry is an important player for me, for the fans, for the club. We made all the decisions together, I’m very pleased he signed a new deal with Chelsea.

Raul: At Madrid, There’s Life After Ronaldo

Featured Image

Los Blancos legend, Raul is confident in the fact that Real Madrid will survive after Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese star has been the main man for Madrid since joining from Manchester United in 2009.

Nevertheless, Raul is confident the Spanish giants are not overly reliant on the Portugal captain.

“There is definitely life after Ronaldo,” Raul told AS. “What Cristiano has been doing is huge, but Madrid have a great team with players who can still offer more. The important things is that they keep working as a unit.

“Cristiano has been the top scorer for the last seven seasons or so. Nobody expected him to perform like this, he has an incredible desire to meet his objectives and keep working.

“I have a good relationship with him. And there is a mutual admiration. It’s a shame that we played together for just one year, but it was an important year and we had a connection.”

Conte Ready To Fire On With Chelsea

Featured Image

Antonio Conte has stated he intends to turn Chelsea into a blazing inferno. He said this the moment he took over as manager.

The Italian manager was introduced to the press, for the first time on Thursday. He was appointed Mourinho’s successor.

Chelsea finished 10th on the table, their worst finish following a title defence. And Mourinho lost his job in the process.

They will now aim to return to the summit of the table under Conte in a season in which Pep Guardiola also arrives in the English top flight and Mourinho takes charge at Manchester United.

“First and foremost, I felt very emotional about coming to Chelsea and it feels incredible,” Conte told reporters.

“I am aware the league will be very competitive and I hope the winners of the Premier League next season deserve it.

“I think we’re underrated but I hope we can surprise people. I hope there is a small flame flickering that can grow into a blazing inferno.”

While admitting that the title race will be demanding, Conte set qualifying for the Champions League as a minimum target for his team.

“The fans need to find a team ready to fight until the end, and to compete with the other teams,” he added.

“Then, I know, that there is only one team who wins the title. But we must stay there at the end of the season, to fight for the title and be there for the Champions League.

“Chelsea belongs in the Champions League, and we must stay there.”

Bobbi Brown spearheads a special campaign tagged  “Be Who You Are” for its twenty-fifth anniversary.

The beauty cosmetics brand that has catered to practically every female celebrity on the planet since its existence and has honored women with its beautiful and extensive range of beauty products introduced its new campaign to celebrate every woman who has ever used the Bobbi Brown brand over the past two and a half decades.

The “Be Who You Are” campaign featured a diverse mix of both models and non-models wearing natural makeup looks.

A statement from the brand said, “we believe a woman is most beautiful — and more importantly most confident — when she looks and feels like herself.”

Bobbi Brown celebrates its 25 year anniversary with new “Be Who You Are” campaign

After she launched her line in 1991, Bobbi Brown started with lipsticks, she only began making foundations due to a creative stunt which turned out amazing.

She said, “As a makeup artist I would be on set and it was really difficult finding foundations that actually matched the models’ skin.”

“Most of the foundation back then didn’t work. It was paint, it was artificial, and so for models who were black or any kind of mixed race, it was impossible.”

“When I launched the brand, I knew that I wanted any woman who needed foundation to be able to find it at my counter.”

“Even if it’s a lower selling shade, I still won’t get rid of it.”

“I think that probably, a lot of the other competitive brands might look at things based on numbers and what is profitable.”

“I look at the numbers, sure, but I ultimately make my decision based on need from my customers.”

Bobbi Brown disclosed she loved the art of no-makeup makeup as she used models who are “great beauty role models, on the inside and out.”

She said her goal was to help every woman in finding the right color for her skin and makes her look as close to her natural beauty as possible.

“Finding colors that are right for your skin and makes you look natural are what enhance your own natural beauty” – Bobbi Brown.

Should Parents Kiss Their Children On The Lips? Victoria Beckham Whipped For Kissing Her Daughter

Featured Image

Victoria Beckham was whipped for kissing her five-year-old daughter, Harper Beckham, on the lips.

In a snap shared for the tot’s five-year-old birthday, the image depicted the former Spice girl planting a kiss or rather a peck on her daughter’s mouth while in a pool, with the caption, “Happy Birthday baby girl 🙏🏻💕 We all love you so much 💜💜💜 X… kisses from mummy.”

The image seemed to offend some as the comments opined it was wrong for her to kiss her own daughter on the lips.

While some had sexual undercurrents as to their reason for rejecting the image, others were more health conscious, considering adults have more dirt and bacteria in their mouth compared to kids.

And yet another stated, “It is strange to kiss your parents on the lips. Stop saying to other people it isn’t if they think it is because guess what they aren’t the only one.”

While Victoria Beckham was getting shaded, her husband David Beckham got more favorable response with his own birthday shot of his daughter.

#TaylorSwiftIsOverParty: Twitter Roasts Taylor Swift After Calvin Harris Shade

Featured Image

Taylor Swift has courted the scorn of her fans as they attempt to bury her with the trend #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty.

She – through her management – revealed herself to be the writer of Calvin Harris’s song with Rihanna, This Is What We Came For, which she had penned down under a pseudonym, Nils Sjoberg.

After the identity of the real writer of the song went public, the DJ and ex-love of Swift shared a series of tweets which described how she wrote the lyrics and voiced a bit of the song while he wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals.

Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift in #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty

Harris was disappointed she went to the press to reveal she was the original writer seeing as Swift hadn’t wanted anyone to know she was the writer, hence the alter-ego-title.

This made him to accuse her of being bored seeing as she was off tour and needed something “new to bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it.”

Harris refused to be buried by Taylor.

What do they say about digging two graves when you’re on a revenge mission?

#TaylorSwiftIsOverParty Taylor just invited herself to her own party… or maybe funeral.

In his tweet, the famous DJ was referencing her long-standing feud with Katy Perry whom she accused of stealing her dancers and her twitter drama with Nicki Minaj over Anaconda video.

Also add the most recent one with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian where she denied approving a controversial lyric.

During a GQ interview, Kim said Taylor lied about approving Kanye West’s use of a controversial lyric in private in order to play the victim.

“She totally approved that. She totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn’t.” Kim said.

“I swear, my husband gets so much s*** for things when he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved.”

Basically, Kanye called Swift to get her approval to call her a bitch and rap about sleeping with her before and that he could do it again ie sleep with her again.

Step into the scene, is Katy Perry, with a 2015 retweet of a “Time, the ultimate truth teller” post and social media caught fire with everyone against Swift.

All these adds up to what has made fans detest Taylor, birthing the trend #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty to destroy the singer as many have called her a lying, deceptive and manipulative person.

Well, by tomorrow she’ll probably release a song which will make us all forget about why we were mad at her in the first place.

Or it just might be real and Taylor might have buried herself by herself.

His results came back and he was informed it was non-reactive, that’s negative in basic English.

The Prince stated that if it had come back with two dots i.e him being positive, well the conversation would be different.

The delighted Prince acted just how anyone who didn’t know their status but just found out they are negative would, he shifted from nervous to confident.

Speaking for the sake of those watching back home Prince Harry said he appreciated getting tested as it was a “life-changing moment” for him.

NIS Threatens ‘Contravening’ Jonathan’s Ministers With Jail Term

Featured Image

The Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has threatened that ministers or top officialswho served under former President Goodluck Jonathan’s tenure – could get a two-year jail term if they fail to submit their diplomatic passports.

The decision was in line with a directive issued to the NIS from the Nigerian government that all federal, state and local government institutions and agencies to henceforth include the return of diplomatic passports as part of the conditions for the payment of retirement and severance benefits.

The comptroller-general of the NIS, Mohammed Babandede, in an interview with The Punch Newspaper on Wednesday said that although some officials have started to return their diplomatic passports, others are still using it.

He warned that if the former ministers and other officials fail to return their diplomatic passports, they might go to jail.

He said: “Following the reluctance of some former office-holders to return their diplomatic passports, I wrote to the Presidency and proposed that we could take certain measures to compel those who are not entitled to the diplomatic passports to return them.

“The NIS has received approval to write to federal, state and   local government institutions to henceforth include the return of this government document as some of the things to return before  payment of retirement benefits.

“If you are a senator or member of the House of Representatives, before you finish your tenure, there is something that is called severance benefits and before you collect the benefits, you must return your diplomatic passport.

“Also, you cannot cross the border with the diplomatic passport whether going or coming if you are not entitled to it, we will collect it. The best I can do for you is to give you photocopy of the passport or a letter that I have confiscated the passport.”

The NIS boss said he once warned a former minister whose name he did not mention, that he could get two years jail term for refusing to surrender his diplomatic passport.

“The next thing we will do is to go from house to house to collect it. It is an offense. I told a former minister that it is an offense for you to hold a (diplomatic) passport when you don’t deserve it . It attracts two years jail term; will soon begin to catch defaulters.  People have started returning a lot of the passports,” he said.

Featured Image

Sir Alex Ferguson has something to say about Cristiano Ronaldo. And it is calling him the best player of this generation.

The former Man United manager, was on hand to see his former ward finally get some success on the international scene.

And Ferguson insists that Ronaldo’s work rate and hunger plays a key role. And the 74-year-old believes that’s what sets him apart.

“He has an incredible desire for football, Cristiano is looking forward to each workout. He always wants to be better, to win. He especially loves these big games,” Ferguson told Bild.

“During my time at Manchester United, Cristiano was the player who developed the most. Through much hard work.

“He constantly worked on his shooting technique, with the right, left, his heading ability, his bounce.

“His performance improvement is incredible. And what is remarkable, today’s football is so athletic, so fast.
“Usually top players can only play for about five or six years at the highest level, then it’s over. Cristiano has been doing this for over 10 years. That makes him so exceptional.

“Every generation has its special footballer, Cristiano is currently.”

Ronaldo was forced off with an anterior cruciate ligament injury as Portugal beat hosts France 1-0 to win the Euros at the Stade de France.

“My condolences go out to the lives that was lost in Dallas,” Young Buck said.

“But I do feel like we have the right to protect our lives. Look at this way. For 400 years, back and forth, we’ve been having racial issues or what not,” he added.

Read a snippet of The Get Back lyrics 

Good morning, I woke up smelling gun powder, call this their black power, eleven bodies in four hours, five hundred and fifty eight already died though in 2016 gunned down by a five-o.

Iyanya Calls Popular News Website “Liars” Over Fake Story

Featured Image

Iyanya has called a popular news site “liars” for publishing a false story about him leaving his record label Made Men Music Group, MMMG, due to managerial issues with Ubi Franklin, his manager. 

The 2008 MTN Project Fame West Africa winner had shared a statement that he would be leaving MMMG, of which he is a co-founder, to start his own thing.

He wrote on Instagram, Monday, (July, 11): “I’ll be launching my new label n new album soon.”

Iyanya calls popular news site liars

With this piece of information, rumors circulated that the Calabar-born artist was having issues with his management, particularly with Ubi Franklin.

The banter also declared that he wasn’t in support of his friend’s marriage to Lilian Esoro as she was one of the reasons both men were at odds with each other.

The Kukere hitmaker released a statement, Thursday, (July, 14) refuting the allegations as he called the publishers liars.

He said, “All this r lies …I’m not fighting Ubi ..his wife is the best woman in the world for him,she is a good woman.she’s a good cook too.you guys please chill all 😄😄😄😄😄.”

The false story which was published, Tuesday, (July, 12) read:

Singer is leaving MMMG record label due to problems with Ubi Franklin

This announcement is the culmination of a long period of incessant in-fighting and clash of decisions. Ubi and Iyanya, have been at loggerheads over finances and a lot of other key decisions on the running of the label.

Last year, the label had to let go two artistes, Emma Nyra and Baci, which according to sources, did not go down well with Iyanya. Baci, most especially had a special bond with Iyanya, a friendship that had been honed over several years.

Financial mismanagement issues are also a huge part of the disagreement. Iyanya and Ubi have long not seen eye to eye over the remittance of booking and appearance fees. According to our source, there have been concerns over Ubi’s handling of the business finances.

Things got worse during and after Ubi’s celebrity wedding to Nollywood actress, Lilian Esoro, in November 2015. It is believed that Iyanya is not in favour of the union, and the effect it has on the business.

“Iyanya does not like the wife, and does not support the union”, our source revealed.

iyanya

We are cool, Iyanya declared.

Iyanya has cleared the rumors.

He is cool with Ubi and Lilian Esoro and just wants to do his own thing without anyone blowing the calm situation out of proportion.

Featured Image

DJ Drama, former official DJ to T.I sets to release new track titled Boyz in the Hood off his fourth music album, Quality Street Music 2. 

Drama who presently serves as A&R for Atlantic Records recruited the likes of Meek Mill Pusha T  and TY Dollar Sign to work their magic on the joint.

Meek took the first verse, Ty Dolla Sign laid the hook, Meek Mill came back in the second verse with Pusha T closing in on the third lines.

DJ Drama, former official DJ to T.I

On verse No. 1, Meek went back to his time in jail, as he rapped about memories he would rather forget:

“Uh, sorry your honor if I was too arrogant, that money was staggering. They locked me PC with them trannies and rats, man that shit was embarrassing.

“Twenty-three hours in cell by myself, man you couldn’t imagine it. They fed me some shit I won’t feed to my dog, man that shit was the nastiest.

Can you imagine me losing my mind? Doing push-ups, fifty-two at a time. Do the whole debt just to get through the time. Just to get to my son and get back to my mom.”

He kept flowing, “Papi keep asking me, where am I at? I told him in jail and I said I’d be back. He said when you’re back “Can you get me from school?”

“Shit like that there will turn boy to a goon. Onto the graveyard, there’s only one stop. We live fast, die from gunshots.

In this lifestyle when we sling dope. Bust glocks, why you think we say “fuck cops”? Cause when they lock us up all the fun stops.

And when the ice cream truck come to one stop. So for the little babies all the fun stops. And we posted on the corner like the bus stop. Waiting on the state bus ’til the cuffs lock.”

Who knew Meek had such a hard time in jail?

General Buhari’s Speech During Nigerian Army Day Celebration In Zamfara

SPEECH BY HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI, PRESIDENT COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF OF THE ARMED FORCES OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA ON THE OCCASION OF NIGERIAN ARMY DAY CELEBRATION 2016 IN GUSAU ZAMFARA STATE

General Buhari leads the Nigerian army to battle

General Buhari leads the Nigerian army to battle in Zamfara state

Protocol:

I am delighted to be in your midst today in Gusau, Zamfara State to witness the Grand Finale of the Nigerian Army Day Celebration 2016. I am particularly glad with the choice of Gusau for the conduct of this exercise and for the wisdom of incorporating a live Field Training Exercise into the celebration to clear remnants of cattle rustlers and armed bandits terrifying innocent citizens in this general area.

2. The remarkable success recorded during the conduct of the exercise has no doubt served the purpose and aptly drive the realization of the theme of the celebration which is, Optimizing the Capability of the Nigerian Army to meet Contemporary Security Challenges.

3966875_4_jpeg9679ccb5a92f650b83fcf29e0a6a67753. I sympathize with the people of this area for the enormous losses they suffered as a result of the incessant activities of the insurgents and cattle rustlers whose actions have made farming, livestock management and other economic activities more difficult even in the face of the general economic challenges.

4. I am quite optimistic that the operations of the last few days will surely lead to the restoration of economic activities of surrounding communities bedevilled for some time now by the menace of cattle rustling and banditry.

5. I therefore commend the Chief of Army Staff for this foresight and initiative and for mobilizing adequate resources to ensure precision in the conduct of the exercise. I also applaud the collaboration with sister services and other security agencies in order to degrade and decimate the miscreants. I urge you to intensify and perfect current strategies, approaches, techniques and tactics towards curtailing all forms of lawlessness across the country.

6. It is quite gratifying to inspect the equipment displayed which showcased the robust capability of the Nigerian Army to ward off internal and external aggression against the nation. The Command Post Exercise also reminds me of the importance of staff work in the field during the civil war in the 60s and the Chadian Operations in the 80s.

7. I am pleased at the dexterity, prowess and level of professionalism displayed by various components including the combat airborne jump by personnel of the Nigerian Army supported by the Nigerian Air Force. I am quite confident that the Nigerian Armed Forces have been amply repositioned more than ever before to resolutely confront contemporary and emerging security challenges in the country.

3966873_2_jpegea571676ce9b75b0730a5d56350ae93e8. The involvement of private partners in the defence sector especially in terms of provision of specialist equipment under the Public Private Partnership is a welcome development. I urge the Armed Forces to leverage on this opportunity towards enhancing capacity.

9. On the part of the Government, let me assure you of our resolve and continued support to enhance the operational efficiency of the Nigerian Armed Forces to effectively discharge their constitutional roles. We remain committed to ensuring that you are provided with the required resources and impetus to operate professionally and efficiently.

10. Finally, I congratulate all the award recipients for their outstanding contributions to the successes recorded by the Nigerian Army. I urge all officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army to sustain the current tempo. I also congratulate the Nigerian Army for its one hundred and fifty three (153) years of noble and purposeful existence and for being a critical instrument of national unity, cohesion and integration. We look forward to better days ahead.

Thank you and God bless.

He said to the audience and viewers watching the live telecast, “The racial profiling has to stop. The shooting to kill mentality has to stop.”

Wade continued with, “Not seeing the value of black and brown bodies has to stop. But also, the retaliation has to stop. The endless gun violence in places like Chicago, Dallas, not to mention Orlando—it has to stop. Enough. Enough is enough.”

LeBron James closed the oration by advising athletes to do better by going back to their communities and using all tools and resources available at their disposal to effect positive change in their communities.

Muhammad Ali was honored by Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Chance The Rapper

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar recanted the first time he met the late boxing legend to the audience which included Muhammad Ali’s family.

The retired basketball player said. “I think that encounter epitomized everything that made Ali, at that point in time, the most famous man in the world, his showmanship.

“His ubiquitousness. It just seemed like he was everywhere. And most of all, his magic.”

“That ability to make the impossible seem real. Every athlete handles fame in their own way,” he continued.

“Some people revel in it. Some people aren’t so comfortable with it. Muhammad Ali used it to speak his mind.” Jabbar added.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar urged everyone to emulate Ali

Kareem urged everyone to remember Ali’s “fearless fight to help solve injustices and important causes close to his heart.”

“We’re never going to see his likes again walking down the street.”

“But I hope his death spurs his successors to remember what truly made him the greatest.” Abdul-Jabbar concluded.

Chance the Rapper alongside Donnie Trumpet, Jamila Woods, Peter Cottontale, and Teddy Jackson performed a special song for the boxing legend.

In  1964, Ali won his first championship at the age of 22, winning the title again in 1974 and 1978.

In July 1979, he publicly announced his desire to retire from professional boxing.

On Dec. 11, 1981, the greatest boxer of all time wore his fighting gloves one last time in a final fight.

The boxing legend’s legacy will forever be remembered.
