Must Read: 'I SHED A TEAR' - An Emotional Poem Dedicated to the 59 Students Murdered in Yobe


Light out They say",
Awaiting a new dawn,

The bandits appears with no sympathy
Silting, shooting and torching them together,
Just for draconian views to be accepted.
I shed a tear over mans.

A darkness void less one that
Conceives all greater evils.
Then we blame the devil for such atrocities,
We are the devil ourselves
Lurking, looting and destroying.

Tell me didnt they plead for mercy from you Coward.
Still it felled on dead ears
And happily triggering maiming carried out your atrocities.
I curse you and your counterparts a life so miserable
That you seek for death that it wouldnt come.

How do you rest after such evil,
Tell me dont their cries haunt and taunt you.
Or do you just ignore them.

I shed a tear over mans,
For demons we are with an appetite for devastation.

A Poem dedicated to those students who were murdered on 24th feb.2014. 

MUST READ: President Jonathan's Centenary Broadcast

The speech starts with the national anthem. The president said he feels great pride leading Nigeria into its second century. find the complete text below:

Dear Compatriots,

1.         I extend warm greetings and felicitations to all Nigerians as we celebrate our nation’s centenary; a significant milestone in our journey to Nationhood.

 2.        One hundred years ago, on the 1st of January 1914, the British Colonial authorities amalgamated the Southern and Northern Protectorates, giving birth to the single geo-political entity called Nigeria which has become our home, our hope, and our heritage.

 3.        I have often expressed the conviction that our amalgamation was not a mistake. While our union may have been inspired by considerations external to our people; I have no doubt that we are destined by God Almighty to live together as one big nation, united in diversity.

President Jonathan’s Social Media Aide Reno Omokri Exposed As Author Of Fake Document Linking Ousted CBN Governor To Boko Haram - SaharaReporters

Reno Omokri is been accused as the brain behind a fraudulent attempt to link Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), to the recent spike in Boko Haram violence in Borno and Yobe States. If any of this is true then this has got to be some really weighty allegations that demands adequate investigations, below is how SaharaReporters have packaged the story.

Reno Omokri, the outspoken Special Assistant on Social Media to President Goodluck Jonathan, was today unmasked as the brain behind a fraudulent attempt to link Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, the suspended Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), to the recent spike in Boko Haram violence in Borno and Yobe States. In one of the recent attacks, Boko Haram terrorists slaughtered some 60 secondary school students at their boarding house.
Posing as “Wendell Simlin,” Mr. Omokri circulated a Word document linking the former CBN Governor to the recent attacks. The ruse was however uncovered when some Internet-savvy Nigerians traced the IP address of the source document and it turned out that it had been authored and circulated by Mr. Omokri.
This scandal, the latest in a series of ethical and corruption issues rocking the Jonathan administration, set Twitter on fire today. Outraged Nigerians called for Mr. Omokri's sack. The timing of Mr. Omokri's fraudulent act is particularly insensitive, with many commentators questioning why a member of President Jonathan’s inner circle would seek to capitalize on the blood of slaughtered innocent children by forging documents to implicate a perceived "enemy" of the Jonathan administration.

Massive outrage across Nigeria over Boko Haram's slaughter of 59 students

Armed assailants descended on Federal Government College, Buni Yadi in Yobe in the dead of night Tuesday, setting the hostels alight as the pupils slept in their dormitories, before shooting and hacking to death those who attempted to flee.
One of the bereaved parents was quoted by activist Ibrahim Wala as narrating how his son narrowly escaped death by jumping into a ditch where he witnessed his school mates being slaughtered.
According to the boy’s father, for the hours the attack lasted, and despite the presence of security operatives in Buni-Yadi town, no security personnel or rescue team showed up at the school.
Anger and frustration reverberated across Nigeria Wednesday, a day after the extremist Boko Haram sect slaughtered nearly 50 students in Yobe State, in a bloody assault that stirred a nation fatigued by Boko Haram killings, and ridiculed President Goodluck Jonathan’s claim of success against the sect.

Paula Patton And Robin Thicke Split has just announced that they are separating after 9 years of marriage.

The couple released, a statement, "We will always love each other and be best friends, however, we have mutually decided to separate at this time."

It shouldn't be all that surprising considering Robin's constant flirting with other women ... like the time he grabbed a female fan's ass after the VMAs last year the same night Miley Cyrus was grinding all over him on stage but Paula has repeatedly said the behavior didn't bother her.

Gunmen kidnap President Jonathan’s uncle in Otuoke, Bayelsa State

On Sunday night, gunmen abducted Chief Inengite Nitabai, 70, who is believed to be an uncle to President Goodluck Jonathan in Otuoke, Ogbia Local Government Area in Bayelsa.
Mr. Nitabai was reportedly abducted by 10 heavily armed gunmen when he was returning from an outing in his car at about 9:30 p.m.
A security source said the victim’s vehicle was later recovered at Onuegbum community waterfront where it was abandoned, an indication that the gunmen might have made away with their victim through the creek.
Though the motive of the kidnappers is yet to be ascertained, a community source told PREMIUM TIMES that it might not be unconnected with a land tussle between the victim and some youth in the community.
The incident has led to heavy security presence in the community, which is also host to the Federal University, Otuoke.
The Deputy Commander of the Joint Task Force, Operation Pulo Shield, Ime Ekpa, and a team of security agents visited the crime scene on Monday to assess the incident.
The Bayelsa State Police Public Relations Officer, Alex Akhigbe, confirmed the kidnap.
He said one person has been arrested in connection with the abduction while the victim’s vehicle used in whisking him away had also been recovered.
“Investigation is in progress to unmask the kidnappers and rescue the victim,” Mr. Akhigbe said.

VIDEO: Ukraine peace deal halts violence as President visits Kharkiv for a meeting

A breakthrough peace deal for Ukraine halted two days of violence that had turned the centre of the capital into a war zone and killed 77 people, bringing sweeping political change that met many demands of the pro-European opposition. Russian-backed President Viktor Yanukovich agreed to give up powers, hold early elections and form a government of national unity. 

Parliament voted for changes to the legal code that could see the release of Yanukovich's jailed rival, opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko. By nightfall, opposition leaders who signed the deal were addressing peaceful crowds from a stage in Independence Square, which for the previous 48 hours had been an inferno of blazing barricades and protesters were shot dead by police snipers. 

Although the flames were out, the crowd was still defiant, holding aloft open coffins of slain demonstrators and making speeches denouncing the opposition leaders for shaking hands with Yanukovich. 

Viktor Yanukovych visited Kharkiv, considered his eastern political base, for a meeting Friday, according to a US official in Washington.

Champions League - Messi and Alves finds the net as Barcelona win 10-man City

Martín Demichelis was sent off as second-half goals from Lionel Messi and Dani Alves handed Barcelona a 2-0 win over 10-man Manchester City from their Champions League last 16 first leg tie at the Etihad Stadium.

After a tightly-fought first half in which neither side created many chances, Barcelona assumed control when Demichelis was red carded after he sent Messi crashing to the ground on 54 minutes.

Messi only had Joe Hart to beat as he sped in on goal. Replays suggested the tackle was made outside of the box, but Demichelis had to go as Messi picked himself up off the deck to send the ball down the middle with Hart diving to his left.

Despite their numerical disadvantage, City fought gamely with Victor Valdes forced to make a solid save from a David Silva volley in the final 10 minutes.

From then on Goldie started gaining recognition not just for her music, but for her style as well which was described as “UNIQUE”. Her self-proclaimed trademarks were her bold make up, blonde hair, eccentric fascinators, loud and shiny dresses, over the top costumes among others.

Atiku Decamps To APC

Former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has decided to abandon the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to join the All Progressive Congress (APC).

In a press statement in Abuja yesterday, he described the PDP as bereft of ideas and refusing to live up to the promises it made in the past.

He said his decision was the right one, recalling that in 2006, he and his supporters were pushed out of a party they had worked tirelessly with other compatriots to build as a vehicle to restore democracy to Nigeria. “We later returned to that party in 2009 when a new leadership of the party and the country promised a new direction, a direction of inclusiveness, of internal democracy, of an end to impunity, adherence to the rule of law and respect for the dignity of members and Nigerians,” he said, regretting that those promises were not kept and that the PDP continues to be beset with mostly leadership-induced crises. According to him, as in 2006 it is the struggle for democracy and constitutionalism and service to Nigeria and her people that have driven his choice and decision.  See the

George Zimmerman wants to beat up Kanye West for attacking "defenseless people."

George Zimmerman wants to beat up Kanye West ironically because the rapper has a history of attacking "defenseless people" hehehehe i bet this is a case of pot calling kettle black.

Y'all remember George Zimmerman and the armless black teenager he killed in supposed self defense? I'm guessing you now see the irony in all of this. Anyway, promoters for Zimmerman's upcoming celeb boxing match tells TMZ he badly wants to step in the ring with Yeezus.  The promoters are deliciously Machiavellian knowing for many it will become a choice between 2 evils thus becoming a must-see spectacle.

We're told George's beef with Kanye is not just that he attacks paparazzi  ... but the innocents as well like the 18-year-old who allegedly called Kim an "N***** lover."

The promoters say if Kanye takes Zimmerman up on the offer they're willing to move the fight to L.A. Hmmmmmmm we're waiting for Kanye's response.
