Sir Roger Moore: A Woman Cannot Be James Bond

Featured Image

One of the actors who has played 007 in James Bond movies, Sir Roger Moore has advised against giving a woman the role.

Moore is regarded as one of the greatest acts to ever play the role, having starred in 7 movies including Octopussy and The Man with the Golden Gun.

Current Bond, Daniel Craig is reportedly relinquishing the role ahead of the next Bond movie, but there is no word yet on his replacement.

He said: “You could have a female, a Jane Bond, but it would have nothing to do with James Bond. No, Bond is Bond.”

On who he’d like, he said, “I really don’t know. I do think Aidan Turner looks very good, Tom Hiddleston looks very good and he’s also doing a good job as a UNICEF ambassador.”

The DG said the current management of the scheme was encouraging public-private partnership to complement the efforts of federal and state governments, towards enhancing all aspects of its operations.

This disclosure was made by the Theater Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj.-Gen. Lucky Irabor, while briefing newsmen in Maiduguri, the state capital.

“It is true that about 39 soldiers were declared missing,” he said.

“I want to inform you that a sizeable number of our soldiers had returned to base.”

The commander, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), however, admitted that a few soldiers were yet to be found.

“I think it is only a handful that have not been found,” he said, declining to state their exact number.

He said the military was engaged in an ongoing operation to uproot insurgents from the area.

“Operations are ongoing in the area,” he said.

“I think that we will give you the details in due course.”

He added that the military was focused on rescuing the remaining Chibok girls and all those in captivity.

“We have a task before us that anyone held by the Boko Haram terrorists must be rescued,” he said.

” We will do everything possible to rescue them.”

He said the military had recorded progress in its quest to apprehend collaborators of the Boko Haram terrorists in the North-east.

“So far, we have arrested 30 suspects in connection with the crime of collaborating with the terrorists. We have four soldiers, two policemen, vigilantes and other civilians,” Irabor said.

He said the suspects were undergoing interrogation to determine their level of involvement in the crime.

My Lord, Tell Me Where To Keep Your Bribe

My Lord, Tell Me Where To Keep Your Bribe, By Niyi Osundare


My Lord
Please tell me where to keep your bribe
Do I drop it in your venerable chambers
Or carry the heavy booty to your immaculate mansion

This piece was written by Niyi Osundare. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of

Shall I bury it in the capacious water tank
In your well laundered backyard
Or will it breathe better in the septic tank
Since money can deodorise the smelliest crime

Shall I haul it up the attic
Between the ceiling and your lofty roof
Or shall I conjure the walls to open up
And swallow this sudden bounty from your honest labour

Shall I give a billion to each of your paramours
The black, the light, the Fanta-yellow
They will surely know how to keep the loot
In places too remote for the sniffing dog

Or shall I use the particulars
Of your anonymous maidservants and manservants
With their names on overflowing bank accounts
While they famish like ownerless dogs

Shall I haul it all to your village
In the valley behind seven mountains
Where potholes swallow up the hugest jeep
And Penury leaves a scar on every house

My Lord
It will take the fastest machine
Many, many days to count this booty; and lucky bank bosses
May help themselves to a fraction of the loot

My Lord
Tell me where to keep your bribe


My Lord
Tell me where to keep your bribe

The “last hope of the common man”
Has become the last bastion of the criminally rich
A terrible plague bestrides the land
Besieged by rapacious judges and venal lawyers

Behind the antiquated wig
And the slavish glove
The penguin gown and the obfuscating jargon
Is a rot and riot whose stench is choking the land

Behind the rituals and roted rigmaroles
Old antics connive with new tricks
Behind the prim-and-proper costumes of masquerades
Corruption stands, naked, in its insolent impunity

For sale to the highest bidder
Interlocutory and perpetual injunctions
Opulent criminals shop for pliant judges
Protect the criminal, enshrine the crime

And Election Petition Tribunals
Ah, bless those goldmines and bottomless booties!
Scoundrel vote-riggers romp to electoral victory
All hail our buyable Bench and conniving Bar

A million dollars in Their Lordship’s bedroom
A million euros in the parlour closet
Countless naira beneath the kitchen sink
Our courts are fast running out of Ghana-must-go’s*

The “Temple of Justice”
Is broken in every brick
The roof is roundly perforated
By termites of graft


My Lord

Tell me where to keep your bribe

Judges doze in the courtroom
Having spent all night, counting money and various “gifts”
And the Chief Justice looks on with tired eyes
As Corruption usurps his gavel.

Crime pays in this country
Corruption has its handsome rewards
Just one judgement sold to the richest bidder
Will catapult Judge & Lawyer to the Billionaires’ Club

The Law, they say, is an ass
Sometimes fast, sometimes slow
But the Law in Nigeria is a vulture
Fat on the cash-and-carry carrion of murdered Conscience

Won gb’ebi f’alare
Won gb’are f’elebi**
They kill our trust in the common good
These Monsters of Mammon in their garish gowns

Unhappy the land
Where jobbers are judges
Where Impunity walks the streets
Like a large, invincible Demon

Come Sunday, they troop to the church
Friday, they mouth their mantra in pious mosques
But they pervert Justice all week long
And dig us deeper into the hellish hole

Nigeria is a huge corpse
With milling maggots on its wretched hulk
They prey every day, they prey every night
For the endless decomposition of our common soul

My Most Honourable Lord

Just tell me where to keep your bribe.

* Large, extremely tough bags used for carrying heavy cash in Nigeria

** They declare the innocent guilty
They pronounce the guilty innocent

Aisha Buhari’s Interview Breached Norms And Values Of A Decent Wife – Women’s Group

Featured Image

The Adamawa League of Women Empowerment has said that First Lady Aisha Buhari’s controversial BBC interview “breached the norms and values of a decent housewife of a serving president”.

The women’s group described the interview as “Ill-timed and counter-productive”, saying it was criticism of her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari’s approach to governance. The spokesperson for the group, Ms. Maryam Ibrahim , a Fulani and idigene of Yola said on Thursday that Aisha Buhari did not exhibit the character expected of a Fulani woman who should respect the traditional “Pula’aku”

The women said the first lady’s statement created a negative impression 0f her status of wife of the President and exposed her and her entire family to ridicule and disrespect from both Nigerians and the rest of the world, adding that her action was capable of encouraging the President’s enemies to “assault” him

The statement from the group read: “It is also necessary to point out that Aisha Buhari’s media outburst has breached the norms and values of a decent housewife of a serving president. In fact, she has set a bad precedent, as no president’s wife in Nigeria has ever exposed her husband to this state of shame and ridicule”

“However, we would like to use this forum to reiterate our total support for and cooperation with President Muhammadu Buhari in his effort to restore the lost glory of Nigeria as the giant of Africa. It is against this backdrop that we collectively faulted Mrs. Aisha Buhari’s BBC interview because it is ill-timed, counter-productive and was done in bad taste.”

“Consequently, Mrs Aisha Buhari’s action negates the spirit of ‘Pula’aku, modesty and decorum which are virtues of Fulani”

MUSIC Review: Dice Ailes Ups His Energy With a Miracle

Featured Image

Almost a year since we’ve felt the climax of musical excitement from Dice Ailes. Around November 2015, he released the critically acclaimed “Machinery” which was later covered by Reekado Banks.

Dice Ailes ft. Lil Kesh – Miracle

Dice Ailes’ Miracle Artwork

Dice Ailes may have released other materials before now that may have sounded exceptional but his collaboration with Lil Kesh and Chocolate City’s in-house producer “Ckay” is one hell of a swinging joint.

The tune is well laced with the perfect turn-up vibe for every listener. The production is efficient from start to finish. The song kicks off with an epigrammatic intro by Dice, followed-up with a witty hook “Oh girl your body is a miracle // She tell me her name is miracle // The way she wine, unbelievable // I need a miracle”.

The voice composition (lyrical delivery) of both Dice Ailes and Lil Kesh effortlessly made the song melodically soothing …everything on flick, including the concluding section by Francis Odega.

Dice, Lil Kesh, and CKay were steering for the ears of the party lovers, high-tempo music lovers, and the club. And, that’s where “Miracle” hits.

From an optimistic view, the tune which is already gaining immense love will be around for a while.

Mariah Carey’s Billionaire Fiance James Packer Calls Off Engagement

Featured Image

Singer Mariah Carey and Australian billionaire James Packer have reportedly called off their engagement.

Packer is said to have been the one who dropped the ax on the relationship, with his reason being “her new reality TV show and extravagant spending”.

Packer wasn’t prepared to have his entire life on a reality TV show, and allowed her to keep the $10-million ring he bought for their engagement.

“It’s all over,” one close family friend told Woman’s Day. “James had huge reservations about Mariah’s new reality TV show and the fact that she was willing to expose their lives to the world.”

There are also reports of tension between the award winning singer and the casino mogul’s family, claiming Packer’s mum didn’t like her.

Victor Valdes Creates New Dating App Called “Hola”

Victor Valdes has created a mobile dating app named “Hola Dating” as the former Barcelona goalkeeper enters the technology market.

Valdes, 35, has partnered with students at the Autonomous University of Barcelona to develop his very own dating app – called ‘Hola’ – which is on the cusp of being launched into the public sphere.

Speaking about the process in a video posted to Twitter, Valdes said: ‘Here I’m on the app and the system says “Hola” and gives me a brown-orange colour. The system is giving me a completely random colour.

‘Then, I show this message to the person I want to start a conversation with and that person can search for me and my profile thanks to the colour I’ve shown them. So then, we can start a conversation in a private channel.

‘We think that in the dating world, you can feel attracted to someone on the bus, the metro, in a cafe, or in a college or club

‘But, you don’t necessarily have the courage to approach them and break the ice. Therefore you need this app.’

Welsh Pirlo : Joe Allen Insists Criticism Over His Time At Liverpool Was Unfair

Featured Image

Stoke’s Joe Allen says a more advanced position is the reason for his recent burst of four goals in three Premier League games.

Allen scored seven goals in 132 appearances for Liverpool, but he says that record was down to his the position he was asked to occupy.

“At Liverpool, the role I had was to provide a platform for the special players like Coutinho, Firmino, Sturridge, Sterling and Lallana – the list goes on,” Allen told Sky Sports. “The onus was on them to score the goals.

“For that reason it’s sometimes disappointing to come in for criticism, but since I’ve come to Stoke I’ve had that role and responsibility.”

Allen also conceded that it soon became obvious that he didn’t have a long-term future at Liverpool once Jurgen Klopp arrived.

“I wasn’t in his initial team and it was clear I wasn’t going to be a first-choice player, which was disappointing,” he explained. But at a club like Liverpool, that can happen. From my point of view, I didn’t want to be sat around and be a bit-part player.

“There were no hard feelings about the situation, but it was time to move on.”

Allen has also transferred his goalscoring to the international stage. He’s netted for Wales in his last two appearances – a 4-0 win against Moldova and the 2-2 with Marko Arnautovic’s Austria.

Karius, who arrived for £5m from German club Mainz during the summer, has displaced the Belgian as Jurgen Klopp’s No 1 in recent weeks after missing the start of the season with a broken hand.

I don’t want to be a No 2, that’s clear. I want to play,” he said. “I will never give up fighting because that’s not in my character to just give up.

“Secondly, because I am not in a situation where I can sit on the bench. I’m 28 years old and I want to play week-in, week-out.

“So I’ll work hard and I’ll never give up – giving up is not what I want to do. I see it as a challenge that I can overcome. So hopefully it will be a fair challenge based on performances put in on the pitch.”

Klopp confirmed Karius was currently his No 1 ahead of the Spurs tie but Mignolet is determined to force the Liverpool manager to change change mind and will keep fighting for his place.

“I don’t want to think about that. It’s not in my character,” Mignolet said. “I will always support the team and the club. Hopefully I can get my chance again to show what I can do. I am happy with my performance against Tottenham.

“I will keep fighting to get my place back…to be honest, the only thing I can do is work hard, keep my head down.”

Two senior officers – a major and a captain – are being held by the Nigerian Army in connection to the alleged sabotage of the ongoing counter-terrorism operations in the North-East.

On Wednesday, a source in the military revealed that the Army authorities were intensifying efforts to rid the service of saboteurs in the ongoing counter-terrorism operations.

The Army had commenced a careful but discreet investigation into the activities of some of its personnel after the Boko Haram attack on troops’ location in Gashigar, on October 22, 2016.

In a statement issued last Saturday, the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman, had stated that 13 soldiers were wounded during a surprise Boko Haram attack on troops at Gashigar in the north of Borno State.

The Amy spokesman also added that some soldiers were missing after the attack, but did not give the exact number of those missing during the Gashigar attack.

The news of the missing soldiers during the Gashigar attack left both President Muhammadu Buhari and the Chief of Army Staff Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, greatly alarmed.

This led to the Army embarking on a discreet investigation into the telephone conversation of some of the security personnel and their civilian counterparts and uncovered some suspicious activities through the screening.

A military source said on Wednesday that the Army was intensifying investigation to unravel two established cases against the arrested suspects, which were the leakage of information on troops’ movement to the insurgents and the raising of funds to finance Boko Haram operations through cattle rustling.

The military source said:

“The President was furious and discussed the matter with the COAS when some of the heads of that units were ambushed by the Boko Haram.

“The Army leadership took out time to screen the communications lines of the officers for several days without making it known.

“The suspicion was that they have links with some civilians and the links were traced. They are giving them vital information concerning the movement of soldiers.

“How come that the Borno State Governor and other officials have not been attacked, yet they ambushed the Chief of Army Staff. They have not attacked civilians but they attacked the COAS.”

When contacted, the Army spokesman said:

“Investigation is ongoing and once we conclude, the suspects would be arraigned before a court of competent jurisdiction.”
