|Politics / Lawyers Ask DSS To Release A’ibom Invasion Report by kinggenesis(m): 5:51pm On Sep 06, 2015|
ADE ADESOMOJU, ABUJA
Some lawyers, under the aegis of the Akwa Ibom Lawyers Forum in Abuja, have asked the leadership of the Department of State Service to quickly investigate the alleged invasion of the Akwa Ibom State Government House in Uyo by its operatives and make its report public.
But they also condemned what they described as “the incessant attack by the Peoples Democratic Party on the Department of State Security Service” for performing its lawful duties.
Coordinator of the forum, Mr. Leo Ekpeyong, who along with
some other members of the forum, who spoke in Abuja on
Saturday, said the group’s findings had shown that the DSS did not invade the Akwa Ibom Governor’s official residence, but a guest house of the Akwa Ibom State Government.
He however urged the leadership of the DSS to release its report of investigation on the invasion so that Nigerians would know the true state of affair.
Ekpeyong said, “We urge the leadership of the DSS under the
able leadership of Mallam Lawal Daura, who has brought to bear professionalism and expertise in the discharge of its duties to expedite action in the course of this investigation. We urge the leadership of the DSS to complete its investigation speedily and let Nigerians know the outcome.
“The safety of lives and property of Nigerians cannot be
negotiated for any reason whatsoever. We urge the leadership of the DSS to make public the outcome of its investigation as soon as it is concluded so that Nigerians will know the true state of affairs because it is clear that only the guilty are afraid.”
One of the PDP’s top figures, the Ekiti State Governor, Mr.
Ayodele Fayose, only on Friday criticised the DSS for the alleged invasion into the Akwa Ibom State Government House.
He warned the PDP against unnecessary attack on the security

collaboration between the professional service providers, states board of internal revenue and FIRS, would mark a turning point for taxation as well as reduce the country’s reliance on oil.
The statement reads in part, “The meeting focused on the need to harmonise exchange of information across all the revenue authorities as well as ensuring a synchronised auditing of all the various companies in the country.
“At the end of their meetings agreed to share information with
members of National Assembly, particularly on tax laws in
collaboration with other professional bodies as well as relevant stakeholders.

various audit firms will carry out joint audits of the various
companies to ensure accuracy of the exercise, enhance
transparency and drive compliance.
“These audits will be completed within 30 days and will take

activities of the various companies.”

stakeholders was necessary for the expansion of the nation’s tax net, information dissemination, building capacity of tax
administration as well as sharing information that would
promote voluntary compliance.
Through partnership and consultations with the relevant
stakeholders, the Acting FIRS Boss said, there would be a
significant improvement in tax revenue and tax administration.

|Romance / The Twist About Ladies Who Think They Are Ugly by kinggenesis(m): 9:06pm On Sep 03, 2015|
By Exzel DaCreame Dollar™
That Moment When You Tell A Girl Who Knows And Believes She Is Ugly That She Is Beautiful. Most Ladies Who Think They Are Ugly Don't Find It Funny When You Pass Such Compliments... Why? Because They Believe You Are Saying It Just To Take Advantage Of Them Even When You Are Been Sincere.
Moreso, If The Compliment Is Coming From A Guy They Find
Quite Charming, They Become More Insecure And Withdrawn.
Some Begin To See Themselves As Unworthy Of Keeping A Guy That Is Good Looking, Or Thinking "He Is Out Just To Take Advantage Of Me" Believing He Has Other Women That Are Better Looking At His Beck 'n' Call, So Why Settle For Her...
So As A Guy, Not Every Lady That Avoids You Or Refuse To Date You Is Being Pompous Or Don't Like You. Some Are Simply Struggling With An Inferiority Complex That They Find You Too Much For Them To Date.
And To The Ladies Who See Themselves As "UGLY." Stop Doing That To Yourself. Because Out There, There Are Men Who See BEAUTY In Your EYES.

|Food / 15 Amazing Health Benefits Of Cashew Nuts by kinggenesis(m): 9:57am On Aug 29, 2015|
Who doesn’t know about cashew nuts? OPA-CASHEW is
what we call them in my dialect (Igala).
The kidney shaped or bean shaped nuts have many health benefits, a few of which are presented below:
1. Prevents Cancer
Proanthocyanidins are a class of flavonols which fight against tumor cells by stopping them to divide further. These proanthocyanidins and high copper content in cashew nuts help fight against cancerous cells and keeps you away from colon cancer. This is one of the major cashew nut benefits.
2. Healthy Heart
Cashews contain low fat content when compared to other nuts and that too in the oleic acid form which is very healthy for heart. They are cholesterol free and the antioxidants present keeps you away from heart diseases.
3. Lowers High Blood Pressure
Cashew nuts lower your blood pressure with the help of magnesium present in them.
4. Helps Hair
Copper is the mineral which helps your hair get that color. So if you take cashews which are full of copper content, you can get that black hair that you always wished forn
5. Healthy Bones
Like calcium, magnesium is also important for bone
health which is the main content in cashew nuts.
6. Healthy Nerves
Magnesium is stored on the bones surface which prevents calcium from entering the nerve cells and thus keeps the blood vessels and muscles relaxed. Insufficient amount of magnesium can lead calcium to enter the blood vessels leading them to contract. It also leads to high blood pressure, migraine headache etc.
7. Prevents Gallstones
Daily intake of cashewnut can reduce the risk of
developing gallstones up to 25%.
8. Helps in Weight Loss
Even though cashew nuts are considered as fats, it contains good cholesterol. So contrary to popular belief, those who eat cashews at least twice a week gain less weight when compared to those who eat less.
Selenium, copper, magnesium etc. act as co-factors for many enzymes.
10. Helps Digestion
Cashew nuts help in growth and development, nucleic acid synthesis and digestion.
11. High on Vitamins
Cashew nuts are rich in vitamins like riboflavin, pantothenic acid, thiamin, niacin etc. These vitamins keep you safe from sideroblastic anemia, pellagra, etc.
12. Healthy Gums and Teeth
As mentioned before, the magnesium content present in cashew nuts is very good for bones. So it gives healthy teeth as well as strong gums to hold them.
13. Pleasant sleep
After menopause, these cashew nuts can give you relaxed and pleasant sleep during nights.
14. Free Radicals
Cashew nuts help our body to utilize iron properly and eliminate free radicals which cause health problems.
15. Macular Degeneration
Cashew nuts have the ability to filter Sun’s UV rays
and protect us from macular degeneration ( 12 ).
Now that you know the health benefits of Cashew nuts, ensure that you eat a few once every week I am sure you already love them.
