I think GEJ deserves the vacation because its not easy to run Nigeria. But how many ex presidents of other countries or high profile people can boast of vacationing in Nigeria? It goes to show how far behind Nigeria has fallen. GEJ did not take care of this country

Where in the article did it say its confirmed she has the virus? What if she has malaria? You cannot arrest someone just for "showing the sign" of EVD without ben confirmed.
What if other nations starts to arrest nigerians abroad because the have temperature? How would you react to that?

The Nigerian emergency agency should have learnt from the USA and other countries why can they chatter a ferry just like the other countries did? US government had to use a ferry to evacuate its citizens to Malta, at least to make sure they are safe. Naija with its way of politics!

Yes, but i don't think that his coaching reputation would ever recover from that one,
Nah i disagree, its just a bad time management. its nothing compared to Bill Belichick decision to go for it on 4th down at his own 28 yard. I am not a Les Miles fan but all he has to do is win more games and it will be forgotten

|Religion / Ukraine-based Nigerian Pastor, Sunday Adelaja, In Fraud Charges by buckeye(m): 11:17pm On Mar 22, 2009|
Flambouyant Nigerian pastor and apparently Ukraine’s most prominent Pentecostal leader, Sunday Adelaja, has been indicted on fraud charges. Pastor Adelaja is the senior pastor of the largest church in the Ukraine, "The Embassy of the Blessed Kingdom of God for All Nations, Kiev."
The Ukrainian Interior Ministry has accused him of defrauding citizens of money, the ministry’s Department for Media Liaison and International Activity said. Sunday Champion gathered that the amount is over $100m.
"The investigator has brought charges against Nigerian citizen Sunday Adelaja, who permanently resides in Ukraine and is a senior pastor at the Embassy of God church. The charges were brought under Part 4, Article 190 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (the embezzlement of funds in very large amounts via fraud)," the ministry said.
Last month, several church members went to authorities saying they were unable to recover the money they invested, which left many of them bankrupt. Police later arrested one of King’s Capital leaders, Aleksandr Bandurchenko, on suspicion of fraud.
Speculation about Adelaja’s involvement with King’s Capital grew after reports surfaced that he was part of a bank in Nigeria known as GS Microfinance Bank Limited. Some speculated that Adelaja, a native of Nigeria, invested funds from King’s Capital in the African bank and planned to leave the country.
Adelaja, however, said those accusations are unfounded. He said he has never been involved with King’s Capital but denied that it is a Ponzi scheme, which uses later investments to pay dividends to earlier investors.
He said King’s Capital was a legitimate business that failed under the pressure of the global financial crisis. He said because the company poured most of the investment capital into real estate, which decreased in value, it has been unable to pay investors.
"When the economic crisis came, all the real estate is no more selling. The land is enough to pay back the money owed. , The problem is , everything is stopped in the country--nothing is selling now in Ukraine,’’ he said.
Adelaja said Interior Affairs Minister Yurii Lutsenko accused the church of involvement because he wants to undermine the evangelical movement in Ukraine. With several thousand members across the nation, God’s Embassy is one of the most influential congregations in Ukraine.
"(Lutsenko) is in a very bad situation," Adelaja said. "He’s got to prove now that (King’s Capital) is a pyramid scheme, but he cannot."
Adelaja said he never encouraged his church members to invest in the company and cautioned them to invest in businesses that offer insurance. "Of course , if you invest with insurance you get less percentage," he said. "What happened was many people said they didn’t need insurance because the (King’s Capital leaders) were Christians."
He acknowledged being affiliated with GS Microfinance, but said he invested his name and influence in the bank, not millions of dollars. He said GS Microfinance was formed to give small loans to poor Nigerians as a way of lifting them out of poverty. "It’s not about what you can get, but the vision of the program is to elevate and get as many people out of poverty as possible," Adelaja said. "That is one of my lifetime passions , because I grew up in poverty."
Although Adelaja has repeatedly denied any involvement in King’s Capital, which has not officially been deemed a fraudulent business, Pentecostal and charismatic leaders across Ukraine are calling on him to repent, saying they heard him encourage church members to invest in the company on several occasions.
"He was not a president of this company, but he was the No. 1 spiritual leader, and he told them what they have to do," said Bishop M. S.Panochko, leader of the All-Ukrainian Union of Pentecostal Churches of Evangelical Faith, which is comprised of 1,500 churches across the nation. "He can do everything to tell them that he is not involved, but all the leaders have a lot of facts, and we have a lot of video of when he was pushing people, and he encouraged people to invest in this business."
Panochko was one of 10 leaders who met with Adelaja last Tuesday to confront him about his alleged support of King’s Capital and the negative impact some of his actions have had on the evangelical church in Ukraine.
The Pentecostal bishops, who together represent more than 2,500 congregations, listed seven items of concern and said Adelaja has a pattern of making exaggerated statements. They pointed particularly to his alleged claim that he led the 2004 Orange Revolution--when Ukrainian voters protested a presidential election many considered fraudulent--and his reports that God’s Embassy has 100,000 members across the nation. The bishops say those and other statements are untrue.
After the meeting, Adelaja issued a statement saying he did not organize the Orange Revolution, though his congregation participated in the demonstrations. He also asked forgiveness for the negative impact the King’s Capital scandal has had on Ukrainian churches, but he added that he did not personally have any involvement in the company.
Despite the statement, Panochko said the bishops would continue waiting for Adelaja to apologize for allegedly endorsing King’s Capital. If he does not repent, Panochko said the bishops would issue a statement to Christians in Ukraine and abroad, and to the Ukrainian government, denouncing Adelaja and claiming no affiliation with him.
Moscow-based pastor Rick Renner, founder of the Good News Association of Churches and Ministries for Russia, Latvia and Ukraine, said Adelaja’s claims are hurting Christians in the former Soviet Union.
If convicted, Adelaja may spend up to 12 years in imprisonment, according to Part 4, Article 190 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.

|Music/Radio / Jay-z Inks $150 Million Deal With Live Nation by buckeye(m): 6:35pm On Apr 05, 2008|
When it comes to Jigga, someone should invent a language called money, because that's all the man speaks lately.
After leaving his job as president of Def Jam a couple of months back, many have been grasping at straws trying to guess Jay-Z's next move. Now the speculation has ended: Hov's choice has been made, according to The New York Times.
Hova has inked a $150 million deal with concert giant Live Nation. According to reports, the deal includes 'financing for his entertainment venture, in addition to recordings and tours for the next decade.' The deal is one of several for Live Nation, which aims to directly compete with the industry's music labels. As part of the deal, Live Nation will have access to not just CD sales, but a larger share of an artist's overall revenue.
Live Nation, known mainly for major rock and country tours, is making its first major foray into the hip-hop genre after inking a deal with Madonna last year that's reputedly worth about $120 million over 10 years. According to their latest agreement, Jay-Z will receive financing from Live Nation for the start-up of a venture described as an 'umbrella for his outside projects, which are expected to include his own label, music publishing, and talent consulting and managing.' Live Nation will also contribute $5 million a year in overheads for five years, with another $25 million being made available to fund the rapper's other acquisitions or investments. The venture, known as Roc Nation, sees a split of profits with Live Nation.
The massive agreement also includes an upfront payment of $25 million, an advance of $25 million (which includes fees for his current tour with Mary J Blige), and an advance payment of $10 million an album for at least three albums during the course of the 10-year term. Other payments dealing with specific publishing, licensing and other rights will add up to approximately $20 million.
Jay-Z spoke briefly about the deal this week, noting that it has the potential “to reach the consumer in so many different ways right now. Everyone's trying to figure it out. I want to be on the front lines in that fight,” he said.
Jay also said that radio play wouldn't be necessary for his future as an artist: “In a way I want to operate like an indie band,” he said. “Play the music on tour instead of relying on radio. Hopefully we'll get some hits out of there and radio will pick it up, but we won't make it with that in mind.”
Live Nation's chairman Michael Cohl also addressed the matter. “He could be doing more tours and doing great. There could be endorsements and sponsorships.” He added, “The whole is what's important.”
