Donald Trump?describes Canadian Prime Minister,?Justin Trudeau as

Many business experts say President Trump is starting a ‘trade war’ with most of its allies but the US leader is not bothered and he just described Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau as ‘very dishonest and weak’ following events that took place at the 2018 G& summit.


According to Trump, ‘PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, “US Tariffs were kind of insulting” and he “will not be pushed around.” Very dishonest & weak. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!’.


He also added that, ‘based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!’.

Three Ebola patients escape quarantine in Congo, two found dead a day later

Three Ebola patients escape quarantine in Congo, two found dead a day later

Three patients infected with the deadly Ebola virus escaped from a hospital holding them in a quarantine station in Mbandaka, Congo.

Two of the patients got out on Monday but were found dead a day later, said Henri Gray, the head of  (MSF) mission in the city.

Another left on Saturday, but was found alive the same day and is now under observation, Gray added.

“This is a hospital. It’s not a prison. We can’t lock everything,” he said.

The report came as the World Health Organization warned that the fight to stop Democratic Republic of Congo’s ninth confirmed outbreak of the hemorrhagic fever had reached a critical point.

“The next few weeks will really tell if this outbreak is going to expand to urban areas or if we’re going to be able to keep it under control,” WHO’s emergency response chief Peter Salama told ministers and diplomats in Geneva.

“We’re on the epidemiological knife edge of this response,” he added at the U.N. body’s annual assembly.

Health officials are particularly concerned by the disease’s presence in Mbandaka, a crowded trading hub upstream from Congo’s capital, Kinshasa, a city of some 10 million people. The river also runs along the border with the Republic of Congo.

The outbreak, which was first spotted near the town of Bikoro, about 100 km (60 miles) south of the city, is believed to have killed at least 27 people so far.

Health workers have drawn up a list of 628 people who have had contact with known cases who will need to be vaccinated.

“It’s really the detective work of epidemiology that will make or break the response to this outbreak,” Salama said.

”Even a moron knows you have failed” – Obasanjo attacks Buhari again…

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has once again hit hard the Buhari led administration. In a statement released by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi today, Obasanjo said some supporters of the Buhari-led administration are peddling rumors that he is now in support of his re-election bid.


According to the former president, this is not true as the poor performance of this administration can be seen by all and sundry. He says he cannot endorse failure.


On President Buhari’s trip to the US, the former president said US president Donald Trump in a condescending manner, ordered President Buhari to go back home and stop the killings going on in Nigeria. Read the statement below

It has come to the attention of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo that some elements in the Muhammadu Buhari camp and or support group are desperate to secure a second term, fair or foul. In this desperation, everything is fair, including telling libelous lies against persons and institutions, instead of addressing the fundamental issues of statecraft and economic management.

In the last 24 hours the internet has been bombarded with deliberate falsehoods aimed at hoodwinking the unsuspecting Nigerians to believe that Obasanjo has now supported Buhari for his second term because of some perceived Buhari’s ‘superlative’ performance in his encounter with Trump during his visit to the White House in Washington DC.

In another breath, these blackmailers insinuated that Chief Obasanjo met with some Nigeria Labour Congress leaders in his house in Abuja on Workers’ Day. What a pathetic fallacy! Chief Obasanjo never met any Labour man or woman on May 1, 2018 to make any supposed volte face to support Buhari. Furthermore, neither was Chief Obasanjo in Abuja on that date nor does he own a house in Abuja. Any time he visits Abuja, he usually stays in a Guest House or hotel.

For the record, Obasanjo has not and cannot endorse failure. His position remains as stated in his January 23rd, 2018 statement on the state of the nation. Chief Obasanjo sympathises with the plight of those campaigners and supporters of Buhari. He doesn’t believe dishing out fake news that can only be believed by imbeciles will turn black into white.

Nigerians know that Chief Obasanjo has only spoken the truth about widening poverty, alienation and social disunity and near disintegration of the country through Buhari’s incompetence. Obasanjo will continue to exercise his right to free speech and no amount of hate speech will assuage Nigerians who are in need of a brand new leadership. The mediocre performance of Buhari cannot be described by anybody as ‘superlative’ even by morons not the least President Obasanjo.

From the Buhari/Trump meeting, Chief Obasanjo only saw through three points:  One, the US will continue to reduce purchase of crude oil from Nigeria and there is nothing Nigeria under Buhari can do about; two, the US will export agricultural products to Nigeria and Buhari’s government will encourage that; and three – all the killings taking place in Nigeria by herdsmen are being done by expatriates trained by Gadaffi and no Nigerian is to blame and Buhari cannot do anything to stop it.

For whatever the meeting was worth, President Buhari again bungled another opportunity to self-redeem. No wonder President Trump ordered him in a rather condescending manner to go back home and stop the killings going on in Nigeria! We hope now Buhari will heed Trump’s advice which hopefully will be considered non-abusive.

Therefore, Chief Obasanjo is more convinced in his statement of January 23rd and will not change his position.  No lies, fake news dished out by these desperate and unintelligent supporters is worth believing and these misinformation cartel and social media tigers will do more damage to the flint reputation of their principal.

Chief Obasanjo understands that the internet has good and bad uses. Those abusing the media should desist from this barbaric act as it will only expose them to greater ridicule at the end of the day.

Obasanjo will continue to speak out. He will continue to issue patriotic statements under his signature or cause them to be issued on his behalf under the signature of his media representative, Mr. Kehinde Adeyemi.

Former Wife Of South African Hero Nelson Mandela, Winne Mandela Dies At Age 81

Winnie Mandela, former wife of Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s first black president has died aged 81.

South African anti-apartheid campaigner Winnie Mandela has died aged 81 and the couple – famously pictured hand-in-hand as Mr. Mandela walked free from prison after 27 years – were a symbol of the anti-apartheid struggle for nearly three decades.

However, in later years her reputation became tainted legally and politically.

Zodwa Zwane‚ her personal assistant, confirmed her death Monday afternoon.

“It is with profound sadness that we inform the public that Mrs. Winnie Madikizela-Mandela passed away at the Netcare Milpark Hospital‚ Johannesburg‚ South Africa on Monday, April 2‚ 2018,” he said in a statement.

She died after a long illness‚ for which she had been in and out of the hospital since the start of the year.

“She succumbed peacefully in the early hours of Monday afternoon surrounded by her family and loved ones,” her family said in a statement.

Born in Bizana in the Eastern Cape in 1936‚ she moved to Johannesburg to study social work after matriculating.

She met her husband in 1957 and they were married a year later.


The deceased was actively involved in the anti-apartheid struggle of her ex-husband, who died five years ago.

2019: ”APC government plans to use corruption charges to silence key opposition figures” PDP alleges


In a statement released on its social media page, PDP says it has gotten information of the APC-led government’s plan to use corruption charges to silence some key opposition figures ahead of the 2019 general elections. Read the statement below

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s attention has been brought to alleged clandestine plots by certain agents of the Federal Government and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to clamp down on key members of the opposition parties ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Part of this heinous plot is also to arrest members of the civil society, opinion leaders, the media and professional groups who refused to buy into the fabrications, lies, deceptions and propaganda of the APC and the Federal Government.

The PDP is reliably informed that the plot against opposition will be hinged on trump up charges of corruption, allegations of plotting to disrupt the processes leading to the 2019 general elections as well as alleged politicization of security issues in the country.

The first leg of this scheme is to commence a vicious intimidation and harassment of PDP members who have refused to succumb to pressure to join the APC in their undemocratic quest to create room for a one party state in Nigeria.

This will be followed by arrests, detention as well as jailing of members of the opposition and others perceived to be opposed to the interests of the APC ahead of the elections.

It is important to state that the trajectory of our political history neither provides a space for a one party state nor a self-succession shenanigan that seeks occupation of political offices without elections.

The PDP, which grew our democracy to become sustainable and successfully handed power to the opposition after the 2015 general election, has a responsibility to ensure that democracy and the application of its tenets flourish without let in our country.

The PDP and the majority of Nigerians, rallying under our repositioned platform, will never be intimidated or cowed on the principles of democracy.

All we are saying is that the APC and its Federal Government must provide good governance and live up to its campaign promises of eradicating corruption, vanquishing insurgency and bringing our currency to the value of one naira to one US dollar, among others.

We want the APC and the Federal Government to know that this country belongs to all of us and that this plot against the people will be firmly resisted not only by the members of our party but also by generality of Nigerians and the international community at large.

When I become the president of Nigeria, every youth corper

Sahara reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore continues his campaign promises ahead of the 2019 presidential elections and this time he says, ‘If You’re A Youth Corps Member (“Corper”) And You Agree To Serve Anywhere In Nigeria You’re Posted Your Take Home Allowance Will Be N50,000 starting From May 29, 2019, When I Become The President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria’.


He added that, ‘It Will Be A New Day For The SHORTCHANGED Youths Of Nigeria.

They get N65,000 as “Bush Allowance” and N70,000 as “Feeding Allowance”. This is separate from school fees in private schools and foreign universities, air tickets in addition to looting. The costs are ginormous to the extent that President Buhari had to fire PAUL Boroh a few days ago. Nigeria Can Certainly Afford N50,000 as starting “allawee” for its corp members. They deserve decent bush and feeding allowances too!’.

Lagos State government reduces the controversial Land Use Charge

Governor  Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos state has reduced the rates of the land use charge following widespread criticism.


The government had reviewed the rates upward, charging property solely occupied by the owner for residential purpose at the rate of 0.076 percent per annum; property occupied by the owner and tenant(s) or third parties at 0.256 percent per annum; while investment property fully occupied by tenants or third party(ies) for revenue generation at 0.76 percent per annum.


It also threatened to penalise those who do not make payment after receiving notice. Failure to pay between 45 and 75 days attracted 50 percent increase; after 105 days, a 100 percent increase. The law prescribed that a property shall be liable to enforcement if payment is not made after 135 days of notice.

However, at a press conference in Alausa, Ikeja today, Akinyemi Ashade, commissioner of finance, said commercial property owners would get 50 percent discount. Owner-occupier 25 percent, while there would be waiver for late payment and tax credit for those who are prompt in payment.

Payment in instalment was also introduced in the new arrangement. The government took the action after the pressure from individuals, pressure groups and civil society organisations (CSOs).

China’s parliament endorses a constitutional amendment that’ll make President Xi Jinping stay in power indefinitely


China’s largely ceremonial parliament yesterday overwhelmingly endorsed a controversial change to the country’s constitution, paving the way for President Xi Jinping to stay in power indefinitely.


Inside Beijing’s Great Hall of the People, nearly 3,000 delegates to the National People’s Congress (NPC) cast their ballots on a series of proposed amendments including removing the restriction that had limited the presidency to two consecutive five-year terms.


Out of 2,964 ballots, just two delegates voted against the move and three abstained, suggesting minimal opposition to Xi’s push to rule for life. The amendments’ passage required two thirds of the vote.


The ruling Communist Party announced the proposals on February 25 and, amid a backlash in some quarters, has justified the change as a necessity to align the presidency with Xi’s two other, more powerful, posts heads of the party and the military that have no term limits.

From national to international collaboration, Tiwa Savage is really on a roll to win and win big this year. The Nigerian superstar’s name was recently cited gracing a street in Lekki Phase 1.

This is a huge deal because not every artistes in the industry gets a street named after them.

Tiwa would be another popularly Nigerian contemporary hip hip artistes after 2Baba and AY Makun who was named after their streets in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos, Nigeria.

According to 2Baba, Tiwa Savage Street is just after his own which is to say that these street were named because the artistes live there.

What does it take to name a street after someone?

From history and how things have worked so far,  streets  are named after people to celebrate them for all they have achieved in their field or if they have created massive impact in the society. Streets are also named after landmarks or things people generally know them for. Sometimes some wealthy people although can submit their names for review to be considered and some people also believe that the first person to build a house in a given area gets to name the street after them. Some think if you  buy the entire land in an area your name could be given to the street or you can file paper works and pay some fees to get that done.

Now these said, we have no clue as to the option with this new achievement for Tiwa Savage other than what we would like to believe which is it being the reward  given to the talented artiste for her hard work.

So is this street already on the map?

Well, who hears about  a new street and refuses to check the map on Google?🤔

A lot of people because the truth is, some streets are not even on google map… yet, and a street as new as Tiwa Savage might definitely not be seen there for now, so we totally understand and we say a big congratulations to Tiwa for this new badge… keep rising girl!💪🏾
