All is set for the okwute ndigbo, Governor Peter Obi to join the race for the senatorial election into Anambra Central. Even though he has not said a word but the stars are alligning.
Just when APGA and Chief Victor Umeh campaign organization jubilated during a road show in solidarity of Umeh when the disqualification of Senator Uche Ekwunife filtered in. Ekwunife who has since moved to the Labour Party could still stand the chance of winning the Anambra central senatorial zone. Well that was before the announcement of the Okwute Ndigbo's arrival.
Later today we await the official announcement of one of igbos icon PETER OBI picking the form and representing Anambra central in the chambers.

Actors and actress (Nollywood), commiserated with Eucharia Anunobi as she bid farewell to her son Raymond after given up the ghost on a battle with Sickle Cell.

I’m a middle-aged woman. I currently reside in Bwari Area Council of the FCT- Abuja. I’m a member of one of the new generation churches, and a church worker.
After my first Son was born over 25 years ago, we stopped having other issues. My husband and I had visited several prayer houses around the country. We have even being to Synagogue Church of All Nations, to see TB Joshua, but we couldn’t see him in person. Different Pastors have prayed for us, and we truthfully exhibited high level of patience, waiting for God’s response. I had met pastors and I had met PASTORS. 40 percent of the pastors we met had made advances at me, even at my age. I realized that most of these Pastors are truly not who they claim they are. ‘’See finish’’ is what I think was my experience in their hands. I do not need to talk too much about the anointed ones, but the warning is that we all have to be careful while dealing with majority of them.

“Bloody Saturday” – Depicting a Chinese baby crying within the bombed-out ruins of Shanghai South Railway Station, the photograph became known as a cultural icon demonstrating Japanese wartime atrocities in China. Taken a few minutes after a Japanese air attack on civilians during the Battle of Shanghai, Hearst Corporation photographer H. S. “Newsreel” Wong, did not discover the identity or even the sex of the injured child, whose mother lay dead nearby.

A Cambridge University college has removed a bronze statue of an African cockerel from display following a campaign by students amid an increase in activism against symbols of Britain’s colonial past.
Jesus College said it was taking down the statue known as “Okukor” from the former kingdom of Benin, which is now part of southern Nigeria, and was looking at the possibility of its repatriation.
“Jesus College acknowledges the contribution made by students in raising the important but complex question of the rightful location of its Benin bronze, in response to which it has permanently removed the Okukor,” a college spokeswoman said.
“The college commits to work actively with the wider university and to commit resources to new initiatives with Nigerian heritage and museum authorities to discuss and determine the best future for the Okukor, including the question of repatriation,” she said.

THIS IS A POPULAR HOTEL THAT HOUSES PROSTITUTES IN OWERRI AND IT IS LOCATED OPPOSITE MARIA ASSUMPTA CATHEDRAL OWERRI. IT WAS DEMOLISHED AGAIN BY IMO STATE GOVT.
A prostitute house/hotel popularly known as Timaya has been brought down completely once again by the Imo State Govt.
It should be recalled that the same hotel was demolished early last yr by Imo Entraco at the instant of the state govt following series of complaints and ugly activities going on there which has actually brought bad name to the state. But my office observed with dismay that the same hotel owned by one Timaya, a disabled person. It was quickly erected once again with the same business of prostitution still going on. It may interest the general public to know that the most annoying part of this hotel is that it is located directly opposite a popular catholic church at control post owerri.

From Petrus Obi, Enugu
FROM childhood, Rev. Fr. Camillus Ejike Mbaka, the spiritual director of Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), showed traces of one that would be unique.
Born into a poor family of a palm wine tapper of a father, Fr. Mbaka was not discouraged as he helped out his father in his vocation with which the family was sustained.
A search into the humble beginning and make-up of the stature of Fr. Mbaka took Saturday Sun to his ancestral home in Amata, Ituku, in Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State.
Amata is a sleepy village tucked behind the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, Ituku/Ozalla and hidden from the Enugu-Port Harcourt expressway.

Thus, they view with suspicion anybody who comes to make enquiry about the fiery Catholic priest whose popularity has soared in the country and beyond because of his...
