Praiz, Iyanya, and Timaya have been called out by Nigerian On-Air Personality, Tolu Oniru popularly known as Toolz who confronted Praiz after his interview with Oliseh and Maria Okan for severing ties with her.
According to the OAP, some of her male “friends” in the Nigerian music industry whom she thought were her friends left her immediately she got married and one of them is Praiz who she was opportune to speak with and hear His reason.
According to Praiz, he didn’t stop talking to Toolz, he only curtailed the frequency of their communication because of his respect for her marriage.
Timaya, on the other hand, told Toolz that she is dead to him the day she got married and apparently he kept his words because it seems she hasn’t heard from him since then. Just like Praiz, Toolz revealed Iyanya told her he stopped calling her because she got married.
To Praiz he didn’t continue because he felt he bonded with Toolz and when she got married… So? He didn’t say though but this kind of thing is quite hard to understand because like it or not she was going to marry he boo and that shouldn’t hinder FRIENDSHIP.
Toolz revealed she wasn’t happy with their decisions because she thought they were friends. OH-OH.

By now, we're sure you all know that the JAMB Mock Exam for the 2017 UTME has been confirmed to hold on February 26th, 2018.
Many UTME candidates seem not to know if they are qualified to partake in the mock examination or not.
Let’s quickly clear the confusion so you know if you are qualified or not.
In as much as a lot of you would like to write the Mock Exam, not everyone is entitled to write it.
If you did not select to write the exam during registration, you are simply not qualified to partake in the mock examination.
Also, if you are unable to print you mock exam slip or get a notification from JAMB concerning the mock exam schedule; it equally means you are not qualified for the mock exam.

| Family / Re: "I Never Believed I Would Marry An Illiterate" - Abuja Based Lady Reveals. Photo by free2ryhme: 9:19pm On Feb 20|
An Abuja based woman has revealed how she felt about marrying an illiterate some years ago before meeting her lovely heartthrob. According to her, she fell in love with the man who had no form of degree, income or career prospects but now they are happily married and blessed with two beautiful children.
Read the post shared by Humans of Abuja on behalf of the lady.
If someone had told me 5 years ago that I was going to end up marrying an illiterate, I would have presumed they were mad. But that’s what happened. I was 23 years old, happily single, with a successful career as a banker when I fell in love with a man that didn't have any form of degree, a Man with no income or career prospects.
September that year, I was transferred to Abuja and one Sunday evening, I was sitting in a restaurant waiting for a friend, when a man sat down next to me. "Do you have the time?" he asked, he looked Smart, his clothes were nice, his hair and beard well cut and we started chatting and to my surprise he made me laugh several times with his bad English. I couldn’t help but notice that despite his bad English, he was handsome and tall. After a few minutes my friend arrive and he stood up and before I could say anything further he pointed to my table and said, "tomorrow 7pm, same table" then he walked away.
My friend and I stared at each other, unable to believe what had happened. Had a man who appeared to be an illiterate order me to come back the next day? How could he be so confident? I found myself thinking about him through out that day, there was something about him that was so intriguing that I wanted to meet him again.
Finally, the next day arrived and I was so excited, I could barely think straight at work, it was 7pm and I left to wait for him at the restaurant, I waited and waited, after 20 minutes I was about to give up when he turned up. " I didn’t think you would come, I came to check just in case" he said with a smile. I smiled back and my anger melted away.
During our time together, I realised that he was simply the funniest, happiest and most optimistic person I had ever met. He had a lust for life that was both mesmerising and contagious. I had never met anyone like him before. I encouraged him to go back to school but he refused.
I helped him with his English and helped correct him whenever he spoke an incorrect one. He's currently very good in both spoken and written English and doing very well business wise. We got married 3 years ago and God has blessed us with 2 beautiful kids so far.
Congrats to her

“They are burying their heads in shame and telling people that Buhari’s led government has done nothing,” Barkindo noted.
Thanking the Lamido for his support, Buhari said that he had fulfilled major promises made to electorate during his political campaign.
He said that the fight against corruption and maintenance of peace and security were among the priorities of his administration.
“We appreciate security progress in the North East and the country at large.
He explained also that economic development had improved, especially in agriculture.

David Eyo, a 31-year-old head-teacher, who allegedly defiled his 10-year-old pupil and infected her with a disease was on Tuesday remanded in Kirikiri Prison on the orders of an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court.
Chief Magistrate, Mrs B.O. Osunsanmi, who gave the ruling, directed that the case file should be duplicated and a copy sent to the State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice.
The accused, a resident of Aguda in Surulere area of Lagos, is on trial for defilement.
“He defiled his 10-year-old pupil (name withheld) several times in the premises of the school,” he said.
Reports says that the case was reported by the pupil’s parents to the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team (DSVRT).
According to Mrs Titilola Rhodes-Vivour, Coordinator of the DSVRT, who was present in court, the child had informed her classmate about the defilement which had occurred several times within the school premises.
“The classmate who is the girl’s friend, told her mother who in turn informed the father and the case was reported to the Eric Moore Police Station in Surulere.
“At the police station, it was referred to the Gender Desk and the desk got in touch with the DSVRT for further investigation.

“According to the survivor, who was preparing for her Common Entrance Examinations, the pupils used to stay after school hours to be tutored by Eyo who works also as the headteacher, choir master and class teacher.
“Eyo had the habit of isolating the survivor from her classmates and defiling her in the classroom and infected her with a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD).
“The survivor alleged that the sexual abuse had started since September 2017 when she was in Primary Five.”
The case has been adjourned until June 25.

The FRSC has reduced the rate of road accidents in Nigeria by 62 per cent since its establishment on February 18, 1988, according to its Kaduna sector commander, Mr Umar Ibrahim. “The corps has recorded a milestone; it has reduced road accidents from 25,792 in 1988 to barely 9,694 in 2016, representing 62 per cent decrease in road accidents,” he said yesterday in Kaduna. He said that before the establishment of the FRSC, Nigeria had one of the most accident-prone roads in the world and was second only to Ethiopia. Ibrahim attributed the success to intensive public enlightenment and highway operations designed to curb road accidents. Umar, who spoke at a dinner to wind up week-long activities to mark FRSC’s 30 years, urged the personnel to work hard toward further reducing accidents on the nation’s roads, and advised Nigerians to obey traffic regulations. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that six officers of the sector, who had distinguished themselves in the performance of their duties, were given special rewards during the dinner. Those honoured included Deputy Road Commander Waheed Salihu, who emerged the best patrol man of the sector. Also honoured were Road Commander Aliyu Audu and Road Commander Sain Gwom Ambisa, who emerged second and third best respectively. Others included Route Marshal Assistant Isah Kabir, Assistant Chief Inspector Halilu Abubakar and Assistant Chief Inspector Lawal Ahmed. The Kaduna Zonal Commander of the corps, Assistant Corps Marshal Bulus Darwang, who also spoke at the dinner, commended the officers and marshals for a job well-done, and urged them to sustain the tempo.

Activist group, OurMumuDonDo Movement, has announced its plans to organize a mass action on Wednesday against what it described as the longest-ever fuel scarcity to afflict the country.
The announcement was made in a statement signed by the group and its affiliates. According to the statement, the mass action will hold at 11 am at the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Towers in Abuja.
The group noted that for over three months, Nigerians have endured agonizing shortage of crisis, which has caused a spike in the prices of commodities, hike in the cost of transportation and wastage of man-hours spent at queuing daily at petrol stations.
It equally noted that despite the inability of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to fulfill its promises, Nigerians have kept faith with the government in the hope that a solution would be found.
“We are extremely displeased that President Buhari has failed consistently to fulfill his promise of putting an to end to the fuel problem. The deceit and apathy that have been displayed toward the suffering masses by the current administration totally contradict the mandate which Nigerians gave Buhari in 2015.
“Since the lingering fuel scarcity has now reached an alarming crescendo of misery and public outcry, we at the OurMumuDonDo Movement have decided to ensure that the President, the NNPC and other stakeholders in the oil sector are compelled to find a lasting solution to the current crisis and abate the sufferings of the Nigerian people across the nation,” the group said.
It accused the government of using propaganda to explain the crisis away, while Nigerians are buying at extortionate prices in different states.
The group called on all Nigerians affected by the current fuel scarcity to join the action against scarcity.
Signatories to the statement were Messrs. Adebayo Raphael ( OurMumuDonDo Movement), Deji Adeyanju (Concerned Nigerians)
Ariyo Dare Atoye (Coalition in Defence of Nigerian Democracy), Bako Abdul Usman (Campaign for Democracy) and Moses Paul (MAD Connect).

| Politics / Re: Fresh N10bn NHIS Scam: Buhari Presidency Stinks, Has No Honour Left- PDP by free2ryhme: 8:20pm On Feb 19|
The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared that the attempts at concealing a N10billion fraud perpetrated by the officials of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) have shown that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari stinks and has lost all honour.
The PDP made the declaration in a statement issued on Monday by its spokesperson, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan. The opposition party was referring to an exclusive report on the theft, which showed how the recently reinstated Executive Secretary of the NHIS, Professor Yusuf Usman, and other officials made unauthorized withdrawals from enrollees’ funds in two installments of N5 billion each from the Federal Government’s Treasury Single Account (TSA) in the Central Bank of Nigeria, which is under the direct purview of the Presidency.
According to the PDP, the country is being pushed daily to the precipice by the Presidency's incompetence. It added that it is the height of hypocrisy for a government that is superintending over illegal withdrawals and theft stealing of funds to parade itself as fighting corruption.
The PDP stated further that the only logical explanation for the concealment is because the Presidency was complicit, while the stolen fund is being used to service members of the cabal around the President.
“Nigerians can now see the level of debauchery associated with this administration. It is appalling that a government can be so depraved that it superintended over the stealing of money meant to provide healthcare for the citizens. We challenge the Presidency to speak out on this report as well as similar reported sleazes that has occurred under its watch,” said the PDP.
It wondered who in the Presidency authorized the withdrawal of the money from the TSA and who the beneficiaries are. It equally wondered what the Presidency will say about the revelation that it ordered the reinstatement of the indicted Professor Usman to help conceal the illegal withdrawals and shield members of the cabal around the President, who were involved in the deal.
“Until and unless the Presidency clears its name by investigating, exposing and prosecuting those involved, it must directly be held responsible for this wicked act against Nigerians, who daily suffer hunger, depravation and death owing to the corruption in the All Progressives Congress (APC) government,” stated the PDP.
It called on Nigerians and the international community to note that the Presidency failed to act on the leaked memo showing the fraudulent award of $25 billion oil contracts at the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), an agency under President Buhari’s direct supervision as Minister of Petroleum.
It also added that the Presidency has refused to explain the alleged involvement of its officials in various shady oil subsidy deals as well as reported diversion of N1.1trillion worth of crude in 2017 to service the interests of the APC.
“Nigerians are aware that the Presidency has continued to shield fraudulent cabinet ministers, including those known for extorting funds from agencies under them, in addition to those indicted for corrupt enrichment. Indeed, this government stinks and has irredeemably lost all honour,” said the PDP.

Speaking to journalists in his palace in Imiegba, the royal father said: “Going by the current attacks on farmlands in many places in Nigeria including Edo North, I am very happy that I declined herdsmen’s request to come here. Sometime ago, their leader, Alhaji Adamu Fulani, came here and asked for land for grazing and I told him I could not grant him his request and deny our people access to their farmlands. “We share boundary with Ogbona and Iraokor in Etsako-Central LGA and Apana-Uzairue in Etsako-West LGA. Our farmland is our heritage and as a responsible ruler, I cannot give it out for grazing or any other extraneous purpose, not with the insecurity all over the place now.” He appealed to other traditional rulers “who collect cow gifts from herdsmen and thereafter, give them accommodation and access to farmlands to change this act.

The 30-day moving average of Nigeria’s foreign external reserves last week accrued by $442.8 million or 1.07 per cent rising to $41.54 billion as at February 14, 2018 according to latest data on the website of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). The reserves had reached a five year high mark last week as it crossed $41 billion on February 8, 2018, a level it last achieved in December 2013. Analysts project that the reserves will continue to accrue this year, rising to almost $50 billion. The rising exports in the country as well as the increased confidence and inflow of foreign exchange through the Nigeria Autonomous Foreign Exchange (NAFEX) window were also factors contributing to the accretion of the external reserves. The reserves has this year increased by $2.62 billion or 6.7 per cent from $38.91 billion which it was as at January 2, 2018. Last week, inflow of foreign exchange at the Nigeria Autonomous Foreign Exchange window, also known as the Investors and Exporters window stood at $789.9 million CBN director, Banking Supervision, Ahmed Abdullahi, while noting the increasing optimism in the Nigerian economy, said it is being fueled by “the fact that we have a very low risk rating in the economy and we have one of the lowest risk premium as per the debt market. “There is a very high confidence in the economy occasioned by the fact that the reserves is at the highest level and we are talking of reserves of about $42 billion at the moment. We closed the year at about $40 billion in 2017 and it has risen to about $42 billion,” he stated. The CBN has introduced several polices to increase the flow of foreign exchange into the country and stem the volatility at the foreign exchange market. Its most successful policy according to analysts is the NAFEX also known as the Investors and Exporters window which has seen an inflow of over $32.9 billion since its launch in April last year. According to analysts at FBNQuest, based on the balance of payments for the 12 months through to September 2017, the reserves at the end of January 2018 covered 15.1 months’ merchandise imports, and 10.2 months when services are added. FBNQuest analysts noted that the rapid accumulation of $12.69 billion over 12 months “is due to two sizeable Eurobond launches, a small diaspora bond issue and the recovery in oil export revenues (through the NNPC’s share of production). We have to add the CBN’s foreign exchange reforms in H1 2017 because the substantial autonomous inflows have reduced its need to supply forex to the various windows. We should stress that the data are gross and mask the swap transactions the CBN has entered into with local banks.”

The source also revealed that the Army is aware of the latest abductions but the army is yet to make a public statement about the incident. "The 115 Brigade of the Nigerian Army is fully aware of what happened on Damboa/ Maiduguri highway near Bulaburin and is currently working on it," he said.
The abduction was carried out less than 24 hours after three Boko Haram suicide bombers killed at least 22 people and left many others injured in a fish market in Konduga.

He stated that the fiance, Olusegun Bakare is a member of the RCCG Abuja Central Parish and even a Teenagers Pastor there.
He stated this in a tweet on twitter. And this comes as a revelation on the true religion of the Vice Presidnet's son-in-law to be.
The tweet reads,
Remember the Second Family had been criticised by many just last week that the news broke that the daughter of the VP, who is himself a pastor in the Redeemed Christain Church of God, is getting married to a Muslim man.
A lot of people claimed it is not about the religion, just as the pastor must have preached on the alter, but about the political connection that is set to come from the union.
The proposed wedding was even critisized by popular OAP, Daddy Freeze who maintained that if it was just an ordinary member of the church, the pastor would have disallowed the union, but for the fact that he is the Vice President and a top pastor, then it is just the right marriage.
Freeze referred to a case of another Redeemed pastor’s daughter Charity, who wanted to marry a Muslim, the whole CAN stepped out to stop the wedding.
Charity Uzoechina, the daughter of Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor, Raymond Uzoechina, who made headlines with her story of conversion to Islam, was set to marry the lawyer who handles her controversial case in court but the Niger state Government called it off and the Christian Association of Nigeria was also against the marriage.
But it seems the air has now being cleared as it is now obvious that Olusegun Bakare is a Christian and not a Muslim just as widely broadcasted.
We knew this before hand
