Politics / Meet The Five Nigerian Senators Who Support The Controversial Social Media Bill by nelsonjay(m): 5:25pm On Nov 28, 2019
The bill, ‘Protection from Internet Falsehood and Manipulations Bill, 2019,’ seeks to guide how activities on the internet can be tolerated as well as curb fake news on the internet.

Mohammed Musa, who sponsored the bill, said it seeks to address the growing threats which if left unchecked, can cause serious damage to our polity and disrupt peaceful existence.

He also argued during the lead debate that one of the disadvantages of the internet is the spread of falsehood and manipulation of unsuspecting users.

Although the bill was passed by a voice vote, indicating that a majority of the lawmakers supported it, four senators, apart from the sponsor, spoke in its support during the debate.The four are: Ibrahim Gobir (APC, Sokoto East), Abba Moro (PDP, Benue South), Elisha Abbo (PDP, Adamawa North) Bala Na’Allah (APC, Kebbi South).

Chimaroke Nnamani (PDP, Enugu East) was the only one who spoke in opposition to the bill. Perhaps coincidentally, the four lawmakers who spoke in support of the bill have a history of online criticisms of their actions. Read All..


Celebrities / Unbelievable! Over 700 Tapeworms Found Inside Man's Brain After Eating Uncooked by nelsonjay(m): 3:48pm On Nov 28, 2019
More than 700 tapeworms were found in a man's body, including his brain and lungs, a month after he ate uncooked pork.

Zhu Zhongfa, 46, ingested the eggs of the parasite Taenia solium - better known as the pork tapeworm - from his dinner.

The construction worker, of Hangzhou in the Zhejiang Province of East China had suffered regular seizures for the few weeks following.

When he went to hospital, he was foaming at the mouth and losing consciousness, local reports said.

Doctors said the worm larvae had entered Mr Zhu's body through his digestive system and then made their way to his brain through the bloodstream.

The larvae - newly hatched worms - get into body tissues and form cysts there. These cysts can then decay and cause infections.

Symptoms such as chronic headaches, blindness, seizures and dementia follow, but may not appear for years after ingesting the eggs.

A Taenia solium infection, taeniasis, happens after someone eats tapeworm eggs in contaminated or uncooked pork.

Tissue cysts cause the infection cysticercosis, which are particularly dangerous when they occur in the brain or nervous system, an infection known as neurocysticercosis.

The eggs may also mature into adults in around two months. This can happen in various organs of the human body, as well as the muscles, skin, eyes and the central nervous system.

According to Newsweek, Mr Zhu revealed he had eaten a hot pot about a month ago and he was unsure the pork was fully cooked.

He sought medical attention after suffering from regular seizures and random fainting over a period of a few weeks.

The cysts had also reached his brain (pictured, the white blobs in a scan of his skull) causing seizures and lack of consciousness

Dr Huang Jianrong, from the Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine, ordered brain and chest MRI scans.

These revealed that Mr Zhu's brain and chest were riddled with cysts of the pork tapeworm.

Dr Huang said: 'He not only had numerous space-occupying lesions in his brain, he also had cysts in his lungs and chest muscles.

'Different patients respond differently to the infection depending on where the parasites occupy.

'In this case, he had seizures and lost consciousness, but others with cysts in their lungs might cough a lot.'

Dr Huang added: 'We killed the larvae using antiparasitic drugs and prescribed medication to protect his organs and reduce any side effects brought on by the treatment.

'Phase one of the treatment has now concluded after a successful week. Now we'll run further tests.'

It is still unclear whether Mr Zhu will suffer any long-term effects from the tapeworm infection.

Cysticercosis and neurocysticercosis are most common in farming communities in developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

In 2015, the World Health Organization identified T. solium as a leading cause of death from food-borne diseases.

The parasite has been virtually eradicated in the US and tapeworm infections are rare in the UK.

A Nigerian Lady has taken to her social media account to share her sad story of how she was defiled at the age of 8 by her own father!.

Read her post below ;

In her words ;

Finally gathered the courage to write my true life story out here. I was 8 that cold night my dad had come home drunk as usual, i was sleeping on the couch in the parlor, i had pee on my body as usual, always peeing almost every night.

My dad had chased everyone out of the house as at 12am in the morning i was still sleeping so i had no idea what was going on.

I felt something in my vagina it was quite painful at the same time watery, I woke up (half awake but feeling sleepy) opened my eyes and found my dad almost naked standing close to me with my pant on his hands, my vagina was wet with some slippery fluid ( what i didn’t know was sperm or normal discharge) I was 8 so i don’t have such discharge, I was naked.

I remember sleeping with clothes on, what came to my mind was why my dad with my pant and why was my vagina wet with slippery substances that looks white. My dad stared at me and gave me back my pant, asked me to wash up and put it back on. I felt some sharp pain in my vagina but wasn’t too severe so i did not bother, i was only 8 so what do i know about sexual abuse.

Politics / Buhari Accuses Political, Religious Leaders Of Fueling Insecurity In Nigeria by nelsonjay(m): 3:02pm On Jun 12, 2019
President Muhammadu Buhari says most instances of inter-communal and inter-religious strife and violence were and are still being sponsored or incited by ethnic, political or religious leaders.

The President, who stated this in his Democracy Day address on Wednesday in Abuja, said that the leaders were hoping to benefit by “exploiting our divisions and fault lines, thereby weakening our country’’.

He noted that in spite of activities of the saboteurs, his government had remained focused in fulfilling the campaign promises in the areas of security, economy and fighting corruption.

“When I took the oath of office on May 29, 2015, insecurity reigned.

“Apart from occupying 18 Local Government Areas (LGAs) in the Northeast, Boko Haram can at will attack any city including the Federal Capital Territory; can threaten any institution including bombing the United Nations building and Police Headquarters in Abuja.

“Admittedly, some of the challenges still remain in kidnappings and banditry in some rural areas.`

“The great difference between 2015 and today is that we are meeting these challenges with much greater support to the security forces in terms of money, equipment and improved local intelligence.

“You will be comfortable because you are close to nature. Every individual is a stakeholder in the agriculture value chain.

Politics / Breaking: EFCC Goes After Tinubu Over Bullion Vans During 2019 Election by nelsonjay(m): 2:58pm On May 25, 2019
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday vowed to investigate the National leader of the All Progressives Congress Bola Tinubu over the bullion vans that drove into his home in February

Although the EFCC has declined comments about whether it had launched an investigation to find out how former Lagos governor, Bola Tinubu, came about the bullion vans that drove into his home in February.

Nigerians have mounted pressure on the anti-graft office to open money laundering probe against Mr Tinubu, after the ruling party chieftain was seen on February 22 receiving at least two armoured vehicles believed to be bearing cash.
The development raised controversies because it came a day to the presidential election on February 23.

Mr Tinubu is a senior leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), and a strong ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, who was seeking reelection at the time.

Critics said there was no doubt the vehicles were conveying cash to bribe voters with, especially since such trucks are used in Nigeria almost exclusively to convey cash by banks, government institutions and cash-in-transit firms.

Politics / Igbo Presidency Is A Must In 2023 – APC Chieftain Attacks Amaechi by nelsonjay(m): 11:22am On May 22, 2019
The Senatorial candidate of the Accord Party (AP)for Abia North District in the just-concluded 2019 general election and now, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Onyekachi Iheme, has slammed the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, over his comment on the quest for the Igbo extraction to produce next Nigeria president in 2023.

Amaechi had declared that Igbo have no chance of taking over from President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

Amaechi said this was simply because, the South East geo-political zone voted against Buhari in the 2019 presidential election.

Iheme, while reacting to the minister’s statement, in an interview with newsmen, Tuesday, explained that South East, as integral part of the country got 25 per cent votes for the President during election, wondering why the federal government had continued to marginalize Igbos despite the performances of the APC in the South East.

According to him, “It is not true to say, that Ndigbo did not vote or support APC. Because, if you look at the performances of the party in the last 2019 election, you can bear me witness that President Buhari, like never before, polled the required 25 per cent votes needed in all the five eastern states put together. And he got more votes in Abia and Imo States.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo knelt down for then Vice President Atiku Abubakar in his desperate bid to secure the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2003 poll, according to Professor Wole Soyinka.

The revelation came yesterday as the Nobel laureate gave a rare insight into the high-stake lobbying and negotiations that preceded the PDP’s presidential primaries in which Atiku was highly favoured to win at the expense of his then boss Obasanjo.

Besides, Soyinka spoke on how genuine efforts by Chief Bola Ige to reposition the energy sector as Power Minister between 1999 and 2000 were sabotaged by Obasanjo.

Soyinka was replying a question at a special reading session to mark the presentation of his latest book, “Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes?: Gani’s Unfinished Business”, at the Freedom Park, Lagos.

Speaking at the event, Mr. Louis Odion, one-time Edo State Information Commissioner and The Nation columnist, asked the literary giant whether he believed a sensational claim last year by Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose of witnessing Obasanjo going down on his knees in Tripoli before the late President Muamar Ghaddafi in his desperate bid to secure the Libyan strongman’s support for an extension of his chairmanship of the African Union (AU), since the former Nigerian President has neither denied nor confirmed the account.

Fayose’s account was published by an Abuja-based monthly magazine, The Interview.

Politics / EFCC Uncovered How Patience Jonathan Collected N4.9 Million Salary After Retirem by nelsonjay(m): 10:36am On May 14, 2019
Dame Patience Jonathan, wife of former President Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, has been accused of collecting a total of N4,900,000, which is N700, 000 monthly salary seven months after she retired as a civil servant.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) ON Monday alleged that the former First Lady, who effectively retired from the Bayelsa State Civil Service as a Permanent Secretary on October 14, 2014, was paid her salary up till May 2015, when her husband left office.

The Commission stated this at the Federal High Court in Lagos during hearing of a forfeiture case it brought against Mrs. Jonathan.

The agency is praying the court to order the final forfeiture of $8.4 million and N7.4 billion allegedly belonging to her.

Justice Mojisola Olatoregun declined to grant EFCC’s application for final forfeiture but directed parties to give oral evidence to justify ownership.

She said there were conflicting depositions in the affidavits before her, adding that oral evidence was needed to clear them up.

The judge had last April 20 ordered the funds’ temporary forfeiture to the Federal Government.

Mrs. Jonathan, Globus Integrated Services Ltd, Finchley Top Homes Ltd., Am-Pm Global Network Ltd, Pagmat Oil and Gas Ltd, Magel Resort Ltd and Esther Oba are the respondents.

Among the temporarily forfeited sums are N1.085billion and N226.3million found in Finchley’s Ecobank account and N39.4million found in its Diamond Bank account, as well as N55.9million found in Pagmat Oil and Gas’ Diamond Bank account, among others.

Mrs. Jonathan’s lawyers, including Chief Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN) and Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), had argued that the funds included donations and legitimate earnings by the companies linked to her.

But, EFCC said the money was “reasonably suspected to be proceeds of unlawful activity”.

At the commencement of proceedings yesterday, Mrs Jonathan’s lawyers called a former Head of Service of Bayelsa State, Mr. Fraser Ogboru, as its first witness.

In his testimony, Ogboru, who said he retired from Bayelsa State Civil Service on December 31, 2014, told the court that he had knew Mrs. Jonathan when her husband was a Deputy Governor.

He claimed he was still in service when Mrs. Jonathan was appointed a permanent secretary.

During cross-examination by EFCC counsel, Rotimi Oyedepo, the witness said he had no knowledge of when Patience Jonathan’s salary was stopped as he had already left service by then.

Oyedepo: “The first respondent’s (Mrs Jonathan) effective date of retirement is 16th October, 2014. Would you be surprised to hear that the first respondent was still earning salaries till May 2015?”

Ogboru: “I would be surprised.”

Ogboru said a Permanent Secretary’s monthly salary was about N700,000 while the gratuity upon retirement was just over N20million
