Nigeria is lucky to have President Buhari, things would be difficult without him - Emir of Daura says

The Emir of Daura in Katsina state, Umar Faruk Umar, has said that Nigeria is “lucky” to have President Buhari in office at a time like this. 

Speaking on Friday, July 23, in his palace when the President paid him a courtesy visit, the monarch said things “would have been very difficult” if he, President Buhari, wasn’t in office.

“Your visit to Daura reflects your good character which we are very proud of. I can assure you that men, women, children, marketers and artisans are always pleased to receive you and they will be praying for you.

Today is not for speeches but for appreciation. We have been blessed so much as a community because you are the leader of the country. You have brought honor to our domain.

As a community, we have benefited a lot with the increased traffic of people and organizations coming to help us here. We know it’s because of you. May the good Lord always go before you and behind you, and remove all obstacles from your path.

Nigeria is lucky to have you at this time. I am not saying it to please you, but if you had not been in power it would have been very difficult. I doubt if we will be here today.”he said

“My lover boy spoiling me since 1800, I’m a spoilt wife” – Obi Cubana’s wife reacts to romantic gesture from husband

Few minutes ago, wife of top Nigerian show promoter and businessman, Obi Cubana, disclosed a video in which she captured some romantic gestures shown to her by her husband during vacation.

In her caption, Mrs Iyiegbu described Obi Cubana as her lover boy. She shared the video of the flower on her Instagram handle.

Obi Cubana was captured standing as his wife, who was holding the camera, walked into the room and was surprised to see beautiful fresh flowers on their bed. The romantic gesture prompted her to give Obi Cubana some kisses.

My lover boy, spoiling me since 1800

Despite being a businessman and boss, Obi Cubana still finds time to relax and have fun with friends, family and also take care of his beautiful wife. Most businessmen in his position find it hard to manage family affairs in the name of making money.

Obi Cubana knows how to manage his time so well as to strike a balance in all aspects of life, and that is an attribute of a great mentor. This explains why he has been able to remain scandal-free despite being rich and popular. I believe this would serve as a moral lesson for other rich businessmen out there.

Obi Cubana’s Source Of Income Is Nobody’s Business – Emeka Ike

About a week after the grand burial of the mum of Obi Iyiegbu, the nightclub owner and businessman, aka Obi Cubana, actor, Emeka Ike, has said those criticising the lavish display of wealth at the weeklong event have no right to do so.

Obi Cubana and wife Ebere

In a new interview, Ike said, “We all mind one another’s business in this country because people are always looking for the negative things. As he (Iyiegbu) is spending, it shouldn’t be anybody’s problem. He is simply having fun. And if it is a way of honouring his late mother, what stops him from calling his friends to come around and celebrate her life? Maybe, that’s his way of doing it. He has also said that he has helped many people and many of them would want to repay the favour.”

Ike also disagreed with those who said that Nollywood painted most rich Igbo people as occultists. He said, “There are different ways people can show their affluence. Some might choose to ‘spray’ money and it could be a one-off thing. I don’t think I have heard Kanayo Kanayo spraying money anywhere before now.

“We are not going to carpet all that because of someone spraying money at a function. Maybe Cubana had been nice to them and they decided to spray that amount of money. However, it is left for the government to decide whether to ban spraying of money or not.”

The actor also maintained that Nollywood actors were not all about showing off.

He said, “People can have whatever opinion they want about Nollywood. The industry is diverse and there are many people working in it. The fact that some actors sprayed money there does not mean we should carpet the whole Nollywood.

I’m Now Single, Looking For True Love $2K Avail For You Monthly – Beautiful Lady Cry Out

I’m Now Single, Looking For True Love- Beautiful Lady Cry Out

Five years into my marriage to Brett* I had an affair with a work colleague, Dave*. I’m not proud of myself. It is what it is.

My marriage had gone off the rails when I found out he had a criminal background that he’d kept secret from me. It felt like a huge deception. We tried to make it work, even going to counselling for a while, and decided to just co-exist for the sake of our daughter.
Part of me was still in love with Brett but the relationship wasn’t what it used to be. I had already decided I wanted to leave my marriage by the time I started my affair.

I fell head over heels. Dave was my dream man so handsome, fun to be around, financially stable and he seemed to be very much in love with me.

It was about six months into our affair that we had a serious discussion about where we saw ourselves in our near future. He told me he wanted to leave his wife, I told him I would leave Brett, and I thought we’d have our “happily ever after.”

I felt like I had finally found my person, the love of my life, and moving forward with our lives would be the life I’d always planned for myself; that I’d be loved and looked after for the rest of my life. Well, I wasn’t that naïve I knew there would be all kinds of challenges along the way. I’d seen enough of my friends going through divorces to know it’s not easy.

So you can imagine my shock when I was on the verge of breaking up with Brett, telling him I was leaving him I wasn’t going to tell him I was leaving him for Dave, as I wanted that information to come out much later when things didn’t exactly go to plan.

About two days before I’d planned to end my marriage, Dave phoned me, saying he needed to talk to me, urgently. I was worried he had already told his wife he wanted a divorce and that it hadn’t gone well.

Nothing could have prepared me for the bombshell he was going to drop on me. I remember it like it happened yesterday.

I pulled up at a café we always liked to go to for lunch and he got into the car, and I could tell right away he had bad news for me. He kissed me on the cheek that was out of character, he always kissed me quite passionately on the lips.

Sunday Igboho: Igbos Not Silent On Nnamdi Kanu – Ohanaeze Replies Critics

Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu KOKO TV NG 9

The National Publicity of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Alex Ogbonnia, has said the Igbo are not silent on the issues concerning the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Ogbonnia, in a new interview stated that the Igbo have been meeting over the issue of the IPOB leader, although they did not bring details of their deliberations into the public space.

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, had set up a 28-member committee made up of notable South-West personalities to look into the arrest of Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo aka Sunday Igboho, and other issues relating to the South-West.

Some critics, however, slammed the south-easterners for allegedly not doing enough to stand united to fight for Kanu’s release.

The Ohanaeze spokesperson, reacting to the criticism, said it was not a statement of fact to say the Igbo were not united.


He said, “The Igbo are meeting, it’s just that we are not publicising it as such. We meet and reach an agreement on steps to take. It was the Igbo elders that met and told Senator Eyinnaya Abaribe to stand as a surety for Nnamdi Kanu when he needed one.

“The Ohanaeze also provided him with legal services when his trial started. To ensure the fair trial of Nnamdi Kanu, we constituted a legal team led by the National Legal Adviser of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide and eminent Igbo leaders to monitor the legal proceedings throughout the trial.”

Ogbonnia said the South-East elders would never leave Kanu to suffer as an orphan, and that they were meeting to make resolutions on the case.

He said, “We are not silent on the affairs of Nnamdi Kanu, we have been meeting. Ohaeneze have met, other Igbo elders have also met, so we are not quiet.

nnamdi kanu

“We are a united people. The Igbo are one of the most united tribes in the world. I don’t want anyone to misrepresent the Igbo’s position on Nnamdi Kanu. We have been holding meetings to make sure Nnamdi Kanu is not left as an orphan. We don’t want the matter to appear as if we left Nnamdi Kanu alone. We have been meeting to proffer solutions to the issue.”

Kanu, who is facing an 11-count charge of treason, treasonable felony, terrorism and illegal possession of firearms, among others, jumped bail in 2017 and left the country.

The Federal Government said security and intelligence agencies were on the trail of Kanu for over two years before he was rearrested, adding that the head of the outlawed IPOB movement was detained again on Sunday – without giving details on the location of his arrest.

Remember Nnamdi Kanu in prayer – IPOB lawyer tells Nigerians ahead of monday trial

The lawyer to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has paid a clarion call on Nigerians to pray for Nnmadi Kanu ahead of his court appearance on Monday, July 26.

According to Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the hearing of his Client’s case would go on as planned on Monday and he would need the support of his sympathizers. The lawyer is fighting for the release of Kanu whiles the FG tries to indict and prosecute him for his links to IPOB.

Ejiofor wrote; “We have just received a confirmation from Federal High Court Abuja that the hearing on our Client’s case above referred will still go on as earlier scheduled on Monday next week being the 26th day of July 2021.”

“Remember Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the entire Legal team in your prayers. Thank you all and remain blessed,”

Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader, Enyinaya Abaribe, has declared that he is willing to stand in as surety again for the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Recall that Enyinaya Abaribe initially stood in as surety for Nnamdi Kanu when he was arrested by the Federal government as he placed about N100million as bond.

Abaribe has stated that he won’t think twice about providing surety for Nnamdi Kanu again if the need arises. He made his submission in an interview on TVC’s Journalists Hangout.

Abaribe said: “There is a difference between jumping bail and escaping for your life. I went back to court and deposed that on the basis of the principle of ‘last seen’, that the last people seen with him were soldiers of the Nigerian army who were invading his father’s residence.

“The judge ultimately ruled that she was revoking bail and issued a warrant of arrest, thereby removing us from the responsibility of providing him.”

“If the circumstances are the same, then why not?

How Oyedepo paid graduate pastors N38,000 monthly — Sacked pastor reveals


A pastor, who was part of the 40 pastors who were recently sacked by Bishop David Oyedepo’s Living Faith Church, has opened up about how the graduate pastors were paid N38,000 as salaries.

The sacked pastor explained that the gross salary he was receiving was N53,000 and they were paid N38,000 monthly as the remaining was used to cater for pension and housing allowance. The pastor spoke with Sahara Reporters and he preferred not to be revealed.

He said, “Oyedepo and his senior Pastors knew they would sack us before employing us. That was why they gave us employment on probation. Someone went online to post lies in support of the church that the recently sacked pastors were being paid N80,000 and house rent of N150,000.

“I will just say a little here; no employed pastor was paid N80,000 in the church. The highest salary is for degree holders which is N53,000 and, this N53,000 is not the net salary at the end of the month. The pastor will only receive N38,000 at the end of the month; N6,000 goes to the pension account and N9,000 goes to house rent account.

“It is very funny that the pastors, we honoured, could keep the money they removed from our salaries in their personal bank accounts for long without paying into our pension accounts. It was when they sacked us that they started paying into the pension accounts. Imagine that.

Mermaids Snatch Three People During Church Prayer Session At A River

There were fears that the trio was captured by a mermaid, an imaginary aquatic creature that has the upper body of a human and the tail of a fish, instead of legs.

Three people went missing during a prayer session at a river in Makasi village under Chief Mapanzure, police have confirmed.

Masvingo Provincial police spokesperson Kudakwashe Dhewa confirmed the disappearances saying police were investigating the case of three persons who went missing on Friday.

The prayer session was led by Pastor Amos Chituri (49) of Agnes Access Apostolic Church and he is said to come from Mutasa District, Manicaland Province.

Couple holding hands and praying

The village where the incident happened is about 8km from Nemwana Growth Point or 40km from Masvingo City. Reports claim Chituri came to the village to pray for one of the church members in the village who was not feeling well.

The man of the cloth reportedly took church members to the river where one of those who were supposed to be prayed for was a village head by the name Tazvigwira.

It was further claimed that while praying at the stream, three elders of the church were with Chituri when a great sound was heard.

The elders and everyone there started talking in tongues and throwing themselves into the river and disappeared. A villager who declined to be named told the publication that the whole village believes that the three were taken by mermaids.
