Ahead of the 2015 general elections, the Ogun state Independent National Electoral Commission has released names of governorship candidates of various political parties ,for the All Progressives Congress.
The National Publicity Secretary of APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed had the following to say about GEJ;
“Mr. President said he wants to put in place the institutions to tackle corruption before taking on the cankerworm that has almost destroyed the fabric of our society. Pray, whatever happened to the EFCC and the ICPC? Were they not institutions specifically created for the purpose of tackling corruption, but which the Jonathan administration chose to castrate?, part of the statement read.
‘’There is no better way to say this: President Jonathan lacks the political will to tackle corruption, and he will not tackle it if he spends 60 years in office.”
“A President who has spent the last six years trying to diagnose the main problems facing the country will apparently need another four years to plan how to tackle the challenges. By then, all of us would have been buried under the rubble of corruption and our country would have been decimated by insecurity, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said.
The General Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has prophesied that Abducted Chibok girls would return this year. During the church’s crossover service into the New Year on Thursday morning, Bakare told his congregation;
The Chibok girls will be returned this year; some people will say ‘they are just using religion to deceive themselves. How will the girls be rescued?’ You will see. I didn’t say it, it is what God said and I believe it.Whether you are from the East or from the West or from the North or the South, you will experience joy in 2015. Other nations will say ‘how did they do it.’ It will be indescribable joy. The nations of the earth will testify. I bring good tidings of joy to every part of the nation but I am not going to deceive you, we are going to go through some shakings. Let us not desecrate ourselves, saying this one is Ngbati-ngbati or that one is Aboki and things like that. These are terrible things. Some people will say ‘if you see a snake on one side and a Fulani man on another, first kill the Fulani. There is also a terrible joke some people tell about the Igbos.
During a New Year sermon, popular catholic priest Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka dumped Goodluck Jonathan and threw his support behind Muhammad Buhari. The sermon — titled ”From Good luck to Bad luck” — was given at the Catholic Adoration Centre in Enugu.
Fr Mbaka said,
”I love President Goodluck Jonathan and I used to be his ardent fan, but I want good for my people and that’s why I want Nigerians to vote out Goodluck Jonathan and vote General Muhammad Buhari. I don’t care if Buhari is a Muslim and from the North; all I care about is that Buhari can save Nigeria.
Stella Damasus is always lending her voice when it comes to issues relating to women or the girl child. This time, she wrote a passionate appeal against domestic violence...
"We are sick and tired of people telling us, it's okay for your husband to hit you just because he paid your bride price. We are sick and tired of the ignorance surrounding domestic violence in Africa. We are sick and tired of the law enforcement agencies in Africa, telling us that it's a domestic affair and should be resolved at home. We are sick and tired of mothers telling their daughters that it's okay to be beaten by their husbands because they went through the same thing. Domestic violence is not a peculiar problem, it is universal. It has taken too many lives and it must stop. #NoMore domestic violence, #Nomore sexual assault, #Nomore silence. @nomoreorg @sayno_unite @unwomenla @unitednations @unwomen @worldbank"

I am a strong believer in the will of Allah. I strongly believe that nothing comes to you without the knowledge of God. Talking about survival over the years, I will say it has been the grace of God and His mercy. In life, you can’t avoid challenges; they are part of your existence as a man born of a woman. One thing that you have to be careful about is how to handle the situation when challenges come up from any angle of life.
It is normal for one to go through difficult moments in life, some of the problems we go through end up making us a stronger person, if you look back into those years, has there even been an event or occurrence you wished had never happened to you?
Yes, there was a particular one that forced me out of theatre. It was a very tough moment in my life and I said to myself that I wasn’t interested in this job again. The event happened
