|Romance / 7 Things Every Woman Thinks Before, During & After Love Making by 19Ebisco: 7:15pm On Jul 03, 2020|
Women are faced with different types of thoughts once it comes down to sex. It could be anything from scary to downright funny. Most times, they find it hard to vocalize these thoughts. Here are some of the things every woman, thinks, or has thought about at some point in her life during sex:
1. ‘What is he thinking about?’
The common thought after sex (probably for both sexes) is about what the other is thinking. For some women, these thoughts could involve things like, ‘Did he enjoy it?’ While for other women the thoughts may revolve around things like, ‘Could he be wanting a round 2?’. ‘I wish he lasted longer.’
2. ‘Is he asleep already?’
Its very easy for men to fall asleep after sex, and for some women too. Then again, when the arm a woman has been resting against hasn’t moved for a while, or the cuddle grip around her waist is still tense, its highly likely the thoughts in her head are plain and simple – has he fallen asleep already?
3. ‘What’s for breakfast tomorrow?’
No matter how good sex is, a lot of women can’t rid their brain off of their daily chores, especially if they have responsibilities such as young kids. After some fun nighttime stretching, it is quite likely that a woman deep in thought right next to her husband on the bed is thinking of nothing more than what her children might have for breakfast or what to give them to school for lunch.
4. ‘Do I need to trim a bit down there?’
Most women want to please their men in bed. It’s also no secret that men are moved by what they see, even if you have been married for 20 years. A lot of times, sex may have fallen into a schedule for some couples, and a woman’s thought before the big night is if she needs to have a trim or not.
5. ‘Am I going to have an orgasm now?’
Having an orgasm for some women, is like finding the proverbial golden fleece, in simpler terms it may never happen. That doesn’t mean that they don’t think about it. Most women permit their minds to wander in this direction, especially when their husband is touching and hitting them in all the right places.
6. ‘I wish he could last longer. Sigh’
Imagine you’re hungry, and you’re given 5 spoons of rice, there is no way you are going to be satisfied. Same thing applies for sex, some women’s hunger for sex (don’t worry, you’re not a sex freak) is high, and most men do not take the time to tune into this, that they end up not lasting long enough to satisfy their women. So, women, end up filling unsatisfied and having thoughts on how they wish their husbands could last a bit longer in bed.
7. ‘I hope my body looks attractive in this position’
You’re both having a good time, and all of a sudden he moves you into a different position, and you are self conscious about your tummy hanging out, or your boobs looking like two fallen heroes?. These thoughts are normal, but give your self some credit, you’re the mother of his children, the woman he has been with for how many years? He loves every curve and flaw you have.

|Celebrities / My Relationship With Teddy A Started As A Game – Bambam by 19Ebisco: 7:27am On Aug 10, 2019|
BamBam talked about her engagement to Teddy A and how real it is in a new interview she granted, just after it became a major topic on social media last weekend.
The reality show star stated that the engagement is real and also advised couples to become each other's best friend so they can know their limits and boundaries in their relationship.
“It (engagement) is real. Just like every other thing, you would see it happen. I can’t start giving (wedding) dates" she told Saturday Beats.
“If you cannot make a best friend out of your intending partner, where you know their limits and their boundaries, then you are messed up really. I am blessed that Teddy is mature, not careless, and as public figures, we know how to manage situations that seem beyond our control" she added.
BamBam also revealed that her relationship with Teddy A began as a game before fate happened.
“Fate happened to us. I can’t say it was pre-planned. He had a serious relationship that was one-year-old before I met him. He had a girlfriend he was serious with, so we did not plan to fall in love with each other. We did not know we would last this long.
"We had a very rare connection in the house. We both knew it but we kept telling ourselves ‘it’s just for the game’ but it was no game. So, I can’t predict what fate has designed. So, people should not go in there hoping to be a Teddy A and BamBam. I went to the house for a different purpose, but ended up getting Teddy as a bonus" she said.
|Health / 16 Die Of Yellow Fever In Ebonyi by 19Ebisco: 6:26pm On Aug 09, 2019|
No fewer than 16 persons have been confirmed dead in a fresh outbreak of the deadly viral disease, Yellow fever.
Dr Chris Achi, the Permanent Secretary Designate of the State Ministry of Health who confirmed the development to newsmen today Friday August 9th, said the outbreak occurred in Ndungele community of Izzi Local Government Area (LGA) of the state. According to Achi, the outbreak occurred since July 15, but was not reported early to the health ministry leading to the death of 16 persons before the ministry’s intervention.
“A member of the community called me one early morning to report deaths of indigenes in the community with the victims dying of same symptoms. I informed our health workers and members of the state Rapid Response Team (RRT) and when they got there, they discovered a case of yellow fever with symptoms of yellowish eyes, skin, among others. We then moved into the community, notified the Federal Ministry of Health and National Centre for Disease Control and they have been in the state for about two weeks.
“They came with drugs, vaccines and other interventions as some of the patients who could not be managed in the community’s health centre were moved to the General Hospital Iboko.
The problem about the outbreak was that our people did not believe that they will go to the hospital when they experience this yellowness of the eyes, they believe that they can be treated with local herbs that’s why we recorded causalities which should not have been” he said
Achi added that the victims were also taken to the South East Virology Centre in Abakaliki where the samples taken further proved that they died as a result of yellow fever.
Speaking on how the disease is transitted, Achi said it is caused by a type of mosquitoes called `Aedes Aepyti’, which is predominant in the tropics and sub-tropics.
“It is transmitted from person to person through mosquitoes although there are forest monkeys that transmit it. When the mosquitoes bite monkeys and bite someone in the forest, it will transmit the virus and if it bites another person, the transmission will continue,” he said.

|Politics / ‘report Alleging That I Can Influence Election Tribunal Malicious’ by 19Ebisco: 7:52am On Apr 06, 2019|
Senator Godswill Akpabio, has refuted reports alleging that he claimed to have the connection to influence the outcome of his petition before the election tribunal in Akwa Ibom State.
The former senate minority leader, in a statement issued by his media aide, Mr Anietie Ekong, and made available to newsmen in Uyo, described the news report as one of several fake news being peddled by his detractors to damage his reputation, adding that he never made such a statement.
Akpabio, who lost his bid to return to the Senate for a second term, is at the tribunal to challenge the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)’s declaration of his opponent, Chris Ekpenyong, as the winner of the just concluded senatorial election for Akwa Ibom North-west.
The statement read in part: “The attention of the Senator representing Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial District, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has been drawn to a malicious piece of fake news titled: ‘I will win at Appeal if tribunal judges refuse to perform – Akpabio,’ with an equally malicious rider, ‘says Appeal Court President in his palms.’
“We want to state categorically that Distinguished Senator Akpabio, at any forum or private discussion, never uttered any of these words mischievously ascribed to him. The article is political propaganda manufactured from the pit of hell.”
Akpabio said those who produced and circulated the story wanted to use it “to intimidate and blackmail the members of the Akwa Ibom State election tribunal and sway them from the course of justice”.
The senator said, “Our suspicion is that having accessed the quantum of unassailable evidence at the disposal of the election petition tribunal of how Senator Akpabio was robbed of his victory in the February 23 National Assembly election, these devious characters have resorted to underhand tactics to overawe the Judges from dispensing justice without fear and intimidation.
“We are of the belief that the sickening brazenness and impunity, with which the election of Senator Akpabio as Senatorial candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) was rigged, cannot be left unchallenged.
“It is not just about Senator Godswill Akpabio, the right of the people of Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial District to freely choose their leader cannot be mortgaged on any account.”
The senator said his opponents were jittery because of his confidence of victory at the tribunal.
“What the authors of this fake news seek, is the desecration of the judiciary on the altar of propaganda.
“Treating an arm of government with such disdain must be condemned by well-meaning Nigerians and lovers of democracy.
“Once again, we are confident that justice will be done as no judge worth his onions will bow to childish propaganda,” the senator said.

|Politics / Imo Governorship: Uche Nwosu Heads To Tribunal, Blames APC For His Loss by 19Ebisco: 8:39am On Apr 03, 2019|
Son-In-law to Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha and governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) in the recently concluded general election, Uche Nwosu, has gone to the election petition tribunal to challenge the outcome of the poll in the state.
Nwosu, who disclosed this on Tuesday, blamed the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for losing the election to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Emeka Ihedioha.
He said APC lost the election when it refused to give him the party’s ticket, noting that the outcome of the election had shown that he was more popular than the APC governorship candidate, Hope Uzodinma.
Expressing hope he will be declared Imo governor by the tribunal, he said he was willing to form an alliance with the APC and other parties to actualise that.
“The national leadership of the APC made a mistake by not giving the party’s governorship ticket to me. We warned them against giving the ticket to Hope Uzodinma, but the leadership of the party ignored our warnings.
“The outcome of the elections has justified us. We joined the AA two months to the election and I won the governorship election if not for the manipulations.
“We also won eight seats in the state House of Assembly. Action Alliance also won two seats in the House of Representatives.
“Now that they have realised their mistake, we are ready to form alliance with APC to reclaim our mandate,” he said.
On why he is challenging the governorship election result, he said Ihedioha’s declaration by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was an aberration.
He said, “I have petitioned the tribunal and I am sure that the issues raised which bother on the constitution cannot be swept away. I am certain that I will reclaim my mandate in no distant time.”
While Nwosu came second to Ihedioha, the APC candidate, Uzodinma came fourth behind All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate in the governorship election.

The Edo State government has ordered the closure of two secondary schools in the state with immediate effect, Ihogbe College and Oba Akenzua II.
The acting governor of the state, Philip Shaibu, gave the order on Monday following a series of alleged cult clashes involving students from the schools.

He explained that the schools would be closed a week early to allow a mentorship committee set up by the government to address the incessant clashes between the two adjoining schools.
According to him, the committee will come up with solutions to the lingering crises and produce a template that will ensure that the students imbibe acceptable social behaviours and good morals.
“What is key is that these students need serious moral rearmament. We have to refocus their minds towards education.” Shaibu said.
|Politics / Kogi: My Death Would Have Put Lots Of People In Trouble — Osinbajo by 19Ebisco: 1:12pm On Apr 01, 2019|
Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, said had he died in the February 2 helicopter crash in Kogi State, his security, as well as those not connected with his entourage, would have been in trouble.
Osinbajo and his team escaped death when his helicopter crash-landed in Kogi state. He, however, continued with his engagements and plans for the day in the state.
The vice president said this, yesterday, when the Aso Villa Chapel, Abuja, led other worshippers in the local assembly to celebrate the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari and his, in the February 23 presidential election.
The service titled: The State House Thanksgiving Concert, was to thank God for the success of the 2019 presidential poll.
He said: “On February 2, God gave me a reason to know that but for his grace, we would have been consumed, when our helicopter crashed.
“When the crash occurred, for a moment, there was complete silence.
“For a second, it occurred to me that if we had died, that was what it would have been; complete silence. But, we all got out without a scratch. God delivered us.
“God also delivered those in charge of our security; the Government of Kogi State would have also been in trouble.
“We give God all the glory. I pray God will also be kind to you all also, that you will never be lacking in support, care and genuine prayers.”
Osinbajo said if he was told before 2015 that he would have been in politics, talk less of touring the 36 states of the Federation, plus the Federal Capital Territory, he would have doubted it.
The vice president said he is constantly reminded by his wife that he promised her a quiet life, but, with politics that is no longer politics.
“I am constantly reminded by my wife that she wanted a quiet life, which I promised as an academic but, here we are today.
“I know that I don’t have special qualification; all the exaltation comes from God,” the vice president said.
Assistant General Overseer and Pastor-in-charge of Northern Region of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Ezekiel Odeyemi, delivered the sermon.
He thanked God for preserving Osinbajo and his family from evil; since he assumed office.
Odeyemi recalled the apprehension that preceded the general election and asserted that the aftermath, however, that “God is Nigerian,” which is why peace has returned to the land.
Noting that war is not something anyone should wish even his enemies, Odeyemi stressed that the challenge facing the country, notwithstanding, Nigerians owe God thanksgiving and gratitude.

A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain and a member of the Abia state Advisory Council, Alhaji Suleiman Ukandu, has berated President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government over the current state of things in the nation.
He pointed out that Nigerians were tired of the present All Progressives Congress-led administration, saying that the party has failed in its promises to fix the nation’s economy.
Ukandu who made his feelings known, in an interview with newsmen in Umuahia, said that Buhari and his APC-led government cannot deceive Nigerians again with fake promises.
He stressed that every segment of the Nigeria society has decided that APC will go in the coming February presidential election.
According to Ukandu, “The bottom line is that the Nigerian masses have decided that Buhari and the APC should pack and go this year. Because, our presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar will bring structural transformation that will connote a quantum of change.
” APC has nothing to put on the table because their administration is becoming disastrous to the citizenry. Buhari made a lot of promises prior to 2015 election, none of the promises has been executed or fulfilled.
“Honestly, Nigerians are fed up with these government and its fake promises. The people cannot be fooled any longer, because, they have tested Buhari and found out he has failed in all facets of governance in the country.

The charges against Justice Onnoghen were filed and served on him last Friday at his official residence in Abuja preparatory for his appearance before the Code of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, today.
But reacting, Shehu Sani, while condemning the FG decision, said the move against the CJN should be resisted and rescinded.
He tweeted, “The move against the CJN Onnoghen is a political assault on the sacred temple of justice; it should be resisted and rescinded.
“The government has moved in the crane to the Court in order to remove a Bench from the roof.
“This amount to throwing a bolt on the runway of our democracy and peace.”
|Politics / Mystery Executions Going On In Kogi – PDP by 19Ebisco: 12:34am On Jan 14, 2019|
The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council (PDP-PCCO) on Sunday raised the alarm over the alleged secret execution of political opponents in Kogi State.
The organisation said no fewer than three members of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), were murdered on Friday.
Spokesperson of PDP-PCCO in Kogi, Austin Okai Usman, in a statement entitled: “Kogi State Is Under Siege”, said: “Nigerians may recall that January 6 2019, this council uncovered a plot by the outgoing accidental Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Adoza Bello and his agents to roll out an elaborate agenda to roll out calculated violence in the state targeted at members of the opposition.
“Not only was this revelation made to the world and selected foreign missions, the council noted that the project will be bankrolled by the state government.
“Whereas agents of the screamed blue murder and employed all the outdated tricks to cover up their plot to endanger Nigeria’s democracy, the events of the last 3 days has clearly validated our intelligence report.
“It is for this reason that the attention of the highest echelon of the Nigeria Armed Forces, the Department of State Services and the Nigeria Police Force is drawn to the fact that on the last count, paid agents of the Kogi State Governor, provided with full security and supervised by a member of the cabinet of the outgoing governor, Yahaya Bello have summarily executed three (3) members of the opposition especially the Social Democratic Party (SDP) by gunshot.
“We note that this operation lasted for at least 2 hours 3 minutes starting from 1:30am on January 11 2019.
“While this ‘point and kill’ operation went on, every access members of the opposition had to security agents were either interrupted or cut off. Members of the opposition who could phone local police formations were ignored as the phone calls rang out.
“We also wish to draw the attention of the Embassy of the U.S and Germany as well as the High Commissions of the U.K. and Canada that perhaps the prediction of the disintegration of Nigeria by 2015 is still valid as all indices point to a fact that the date merely changed and that Kogi State, being a former capital of Nigeria with access to waterfront resources has been designated as the point from where the first shots signifying commencement of the 2nd Nigerian civil war will be fired.
“The PDP Presidential Campaign Council also notes that currently, at least 2 families in the over 210 electoral wards in Kogi State have at least 3 victims of political violence which comes in form of festering wounds, permanent disability or even death as the case is with the Ojo Enesi family in Okene, Kogi Central.
“In the last two years, the state government has openly invested state funds in the acquisition of military hardware – booths, camouflage, rifles, grenades, machetes and bullets some of which were seen on live television.
“We are concerned that if pump action rifles and AK47 can be used as though they were hand fans without consequences, the actors of last night could be emboldened to resort to IED’s, dynamites or even recruit suicide bombers to commit mass murder.
“It is pursuant to these developments that the PDP Presidential Campaign Council demand in immediate stop to the killings in Kogi State just as we call on the Presidency to prove that it is not complicit in this by instructing the Inspector General of Police to arrest the major actors who have been identified.
“We also invite the Nigeria Navy to without delay commence patrol of the water ways of Kogi State and show proof of same on camera because there are strong indication that some criminal gangs regroup there.
“We demand patrol by the Nigeria Army and the Department of State Services along identified hotbeds in the state especially between the hours of 7:30pm till 6:00am.
“While we challenge the Federal Government to prove it’s non involvement in this attempts to cause mass bloodshed in Kogi State, we urge members of the public to stay strong and recommit themselves to terminating the reign of those who embolden impunity and reward killers via the ballot.
“Our hearts remain with the families of the dead and we pray their souls find eternal repose.”

|Politics / 2019 Enugu Guber: Support For Ugwuanyi Overwhelming — PFN Chairman by 19Ebisco: 10:20pm On Jan 12, 2019|
The Chairman of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) in Enugu State, Bishop Godwin Madu, has described the gale of endorsements for the re-election of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi by the people from various facets of the society as overwhelming and a sign of good leadership.
Bishop Madu, who spoke during the New Year prayer rally organised by Enugu State workers, on Friday at the new state secretariat, thanked God for the New Year and appreciated Gov. Ugwuanyi for entrusting the state to the hands of God.
Describing Ugwuanyi as “a kindhearted governor and a man we know for his dividends of democracy”, the PFN chairman commended him for making the welfare of the workers one of his administration’s priorities, stating that “we no longer thank the governor for payment of salaries regularly, but for paying the 13th month salary every year”.
The cleric told Gov. Ugwuanyi that it was because of the peace and good governance he has entrenched that “the labour force in Enugu State is standing behind you; the social community and the religious community are standing with you,” proclaiming that “your tenure as governor is eight years”.
Bishop Madu who agreed with the theme of the prayer rally that “All Power Belongs to God”, noted that “everywhere he (Ugwuanyi) went it is endorsement”. He added that Gov. Ugwuanyi has enjoyed such tremendous goodwill and support from the people because of his humility and uncommon style of leadership and prayed fervently for the governor’s victory at the March governorship election and more God’s blessings in his life and family.
Prayers were also offered by other clergymen for the progress of the state, Nigeria, workers/pensioners/union leaders, and successful and hitch-free general election.
In his address, Gov. Ugwuanyi applauded the organised labour in the state for initiating and sustaining the inspiring and highly uplifting religious event, “to give God praise and glory for the love and compassion He showered on us in the previous years and to seek His grace, guidance, protection and all round favour in this New Year”.
The governor, who pointed out that his administration committed Enugu State into the hands of God at its inception “because He alone was the reason why we are here”, stated that “we will therefore continue to seek His face in prayer at all times and in all circumstances”.
According to him, “prayer is the key to all things that are good and it has certainly been the key to our survival and progress as a state and as a people, especially in these challenging times”.
Reiterating his administration’s commitment to things of God, the governor thanked workers in Enugu State and indeed all the people of the state for their unrelenting prayers, overwhelming solidarity, cooperation, support and endorsements, saying: “It has been a journey of praise and everything shall surely end in praise because Enugu State is truly in the hands of God.”
