Buhari Sends Powerful Message To Northerners in Eid El-Fitr 

President Muhammadu Buhari, has broken his silence, after spending close to 50 days in London, over an undisclosed ailment that has been hunting him for a while now.

The message came a few hours, after the Sultan of Sokoto announced the end of the Ramadan fasting, ushering in the Eid-El-Fitr celebration.

Buhari, who refused to disclose the actual date of his return in his message amidst speculations, urged Christians and Muslims alike, to live peacefully and shun violence.

Though, a close source in the Presidency had revealed that the actual date of Buhari’s return is unknown.

According to the Presidential Spokesperson, Garba Shehu, the message reads thus:

“I am immensely grateful to God for his mercy in guiding us successfully to conclude another Ramadan fast. My greetings to all Nigerian Muslims and our brother Christians, on the occasion of Eid-El-Fitr.

“May the lessons of Ramadan namely; piety, self-denial, prayers, and generosity to the poor and needy, be with us for all time.

“I again, appeal to all Nigerians to avoid reckless statements or actions against our fellow countrymen. We should all resolve to live in peace and unity in our great country, which is the envy of many less endowed nations.”

Post-Nigeria recalls, that Buhari had traveled to the UK on May 7, for nearly two months now, with the Presidency giving no specific schedule of his return.

Senate to Pass Bill Seeking to Reduce House Rents in Nigeria

The Nigerian Senate is reportedly working on a bill, that will seek to curtail the high house rents paid across the country.

This was disclosed by the Senate Committee Chairman on Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Senator Dino Melaye.

According to Melaye, the ‘Rent Edit’ bill, would protect tenants and landlords. He also promised that lawmakers would ensure the passage of the bill before the end of the 8th Senate.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Director of Information at the housing arm of the Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, Eno Olotu, in Abuja, on Wednesday.

“Not everybody can own a house. The Rent Edit Bill will help guide and curb excessive rents in the Federal Capital Territory and the nation at large,” he said.

“My kids don’t get enough attention from me because of my profession”- Ramsey Noah

 

Nollywood actor, Ramsey Noah has revealed that his children suffer a lot of backlash because of his profession as an actor. According to him, it is very hard to go out with his children because whenever he does, the attention he gets from fans makes his children feel neglected.

The actor made this revelation in an interview with Ghana’s Joy News. He also revealed that because of his profession it is difficult for him to go out and have fun in public places with his family.

He continued to say “Most times when I go, I always have to be nice to fans, taking pictures and neglecting them and they feel bad about it, they don’t enjoy it.”

Although, he admitted that it’s the cross most actors have to carry and that’s been going on for years and because of the divided attention, the actor said he tries to keep them out of public eyes so he can enjoy quality time with his children. He reveals he enjoys most of his private time with his children.

When asked if he would encourage his children to go into acting, he said he would encourage them to do whatever they have interest in even if it is not acting.

Ramsey Noah has been married since 2002 to his wife Emelia Philips-Nouah and has three beautiful kids- Camil, Quincy and Desiree Noah.

“Virtually all of my married colleagues still cheat” – Actress Sapphire Ogodo

The actress made the affirmative disclosure in a recent interview with SunNews. She said most of her colleague’s marriages are breaking up because they are arrogant and unfaithful to their spouses.

“Most of these celebrities never wanted marriage, they just wanted to try and see if the society would accept them. When they are with their spouses, they would keep other men in different places to satisfy themselves.

They are always with one Senator or the other, or attending one society party or the other. After seeing and mingling with all those big men, they get home and their husband says one thing, they respond with one thousand things because they are not seeing the sexiness in him again. We need to retrace our steps,” she added.

On the issue of domestic violence, the mother of two said: “Women should generally learn how to be submissive to their husbands. The feminist and ego raves have taken over the industry. Every woman wants to be a man and be in charge.

Your husband raises his hand on you, for nothing? No! He can’t. He is not a beast. Tell us, what did you do? Already you are an actress, so your husband always have it in mind that you have tendencies to cheat, so he is always on the look out. So, you have to be careful.”

“My mother wasn’t there for me when I got pregnant at 17” – Actress Iretiola Doyle

The ace actress recently opened up on some aspects of her teenage years. While speaking recently at Harvesters International Christian Centre, Gbagada, Lagos, Doyle revealed that her family members, including her mother, were hard on her when she got pregnant at the age of 17.
Her words: “You have to surround yourself with people who love and support you. I was blessed to have people around me; unfortunately these people are not family members. My mother didn’t take it lightly with me.
I wouldn’t have handled it the way she did because I belong to a different generation. I was nurtured by people I met and they constantly reminded me that my life didn’t end with that bad situation.
Impacting young girls is very important to me. If you ask me what my ministry is, I would say reaching out to young girls. One of the things I used to say to God then was that if He straightened this journey for me, I would be like a big sister to young girls.”

To overcome the stigma of early teenage pregnancy, she had to do certain things. While admitting that the situation affected her hugely, she said that she chose her friends very carefully; friends who were young ladies who had done well and had vision for themselves.

“I felt I still remained who I was.
I came from a very good home, not by wealth but value. Education was not negotiable in my family. I didn’t want that one mistake to define who I was. But it was quite difficult for me because it was the talk of the town for quite a number of years,” she said.

She urged young girls who have experienced similar situations to remember to keep their dreams alive and go back to school after having their babies. For her, it is not about how many mistakes you make or times you fell; it is about how many times you get up.

“If there is anyone in your life who constantly reminds you of the mistake, you should define the relationship even if it means your parents. If your brother or father cannot encourage you, there is a problem because that is where our love is supposed to begin” She concluded.

The Right Meal Time Saves You From Heart Attack And Stroke

It’s no secret that diet plays a huge role in your heart health…

Food is what turned around my hypertension when the doctors couldn’t.

So eating foods like fatty fish, berries and nuts, for example, keep your heart healthy and strong. Sweets, refined carbs and processed meats, on the other hand, take a major toll on your ticker.

But when it comes to maintaining a healthy heart, it’s not just about what you eat, it’s about when you eat it…

Strangely enough, mounting evidence suggests poor meal timing could sabotage your heart health just as much as poor food choices.

That means your challenge — if you choose to accept it — is to learn how to optimize your daily meals and snacks for a healthy heart…

Now is the time for a healthy heart
If you’re like most people you probably haven’t given much thought to when you eat your meals and snacks. You eat when you’re hungry or follow what you’ve been taught traditionally… breakfast by 9am, lunch around noon and supper at 6pm.

And you figure, as long as you choose healthy food that should be enough, right?

Well, the latest information published by the American Heart Association suggests that if you want to prevent heart attacks, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases you may need to take your dietary planning to the next level…

That means that now, in addition to making a carefully-planned grocery list that includes heart-healthy foods like whole-grains, nuts, fish and vegetables, you also need to consider:

How many meals you’re eating (Are you eating three well-balanced meals every day? Or are you a notorious breakfast or lunch-skipper?)
What time of day you tend to eat (Are you and early-bird eater or a late-night snacker?)
Whether you eat at the same times every day like clockwork…or whether your eating patterns are sporadic, at best.
Whether you’re a fan of fasting… or not so much.
These easily overlooked factors have a surprising impact on your heart and overall health. Skipping breakfast, for example, is a major heart-health no-no…

Apparently people who eat breakfast daily have lower blood pressure and cholesterol. People who don’t eat breakfast, on the other hand, are more likely to be obese, have worse glucose metabolism and to develop diabetes — all of which are risk factors for heart disease.

Research also shows that eating meals or snacks close to bedtime leads to weight gain… even if you skipped meals earlier in the day.

In fact, there is a school of thought (and research) that says eating all your meals by 2 p.m. (which I know sounds extreme) can give your metabolism a major boost. According to researchers, the benefits of earlier eating are due to the fact that your body has more time to metabolize your food.

The American Heart Association’s statement also mentioned that sticking to a regular eating schedule is better for your heart health than a fly-by-night approach to eating, and that intermittent fasting (one to two times per week) can help with weight loss and potentially prevent obesity — another major risk factor for heart disease. Fasting has also been shown to lower blood triglycerides, blood sugar and insulin resistance. And occasional fasting can even improve your immunity and help you live longer.

Timing your meals for optimum heart health
I know the AHA’s dietary guidelines are a lot to digest, so here’s a quick breakdown of the basic food timing rules you need to follow to keep your heart running smoothly for years to come:

Always eat a healthy breakfast. My new favorite is overnight chia breakfast pudding.
Eat three meals a day before 7 p.m. (or 2 p.m. if you’re really committed to the cause)
Try to eat your meals around the same time every day.
Give fasting a try. It may sound extreme, but there are different methods of fasting out there… maybe one would work for you.

FG will no longer tolerate threats to National Unity- Yemi Osinbajo

FG will no longer tolerate threats to National Unity- Yemi Osinbajo

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has warned that the Federal Government will no longer condone any threat to Nigeria’s unity by individuals, groups or sec­tions of the country.

He vowed that security agencies will fish out those who continue to threaten the sovereignty of Nigeria or lives and livelihoods of other Nigerians living in any part of the country.

Osinbajo declared the government’s position on Tuesday at a meeting with traditional rulers from the northern states as part of his consultations with Nigerian leaders to douse the grow­ing ethnic tensions across the nation.

The tension reached a climax a fortnight ago when some northern youths is­sued a three-month quit notice to Igbos living in the region following a sit-at-home exercise called by pro-Biafra secessionists on May 30, 2017 to mark 50 years of the struggle for the Republic of Biafra in the South East.

The Acting President ac­knowledged that there were frustrations and grievances by Nigerians, but cautioned that they should not degenerate into the type of crisis prevailing in the country.

He therefore called on the royal fathers to advise their sub­jects appropriately while the gov­ernment creates a congenial en­vironment for every ethnic or religious group to thrive.

Osinbajo said: “In all our previous engagements with Northern and South Eastern leaders, we all came to the con­sensus that Nigeria is strong­er and better together, and that these hate-filled and divisive rhetoric and agitations are un­justifiable, unacceptable and il­legal.”

“Nigeria has seen enough vi­olence and bloodshed in its his­tory; the price of our unity has already been paid in the blood and lives of hundreds of thou­sands of soldiers and civilians.”

“As royal fathers and leaders, I think you will agree with me that we all have a role to play in countering the voices of divisive­ness, and the elements who seek to take us down a bloody path.”

“Let us continue to counsel the misguided elements among our youths, who think that eth­nic confrontation is a game and that words can be thrown around carelessly without re­percussion.”

“Having said this, let me de­clare that we are not deaf to the legitimate concerns and frus­trations arising from around the country. Every part of Nige­ria has its own grievances. But these have to be expressed gra­ciously and managed with mutu­ality rather than with scorn and disdain.”

“I will like to assure you all that we are here to listen and to answer, and, very importantly, to reassure everyone that we are committed to the unity of Nige­ria, and that upon the founda­tion of that unity we can togeth­er build a prosperous and great country”.

The Acting President also told the northern leaders that, “we must never take our diver­sity for granted; the fullness of our strength actually lies in that diversity. And we must wield that diversity, not as a divisive tool, but instead as a binding agent.”

“As we round up these con­sultations tomorrow (Wednes­day) with a meeting with gover­nors, it is clear to me that we are all resolved to by words, conduct and action, promote the unity of our dear nation.”

Osinbajo said that the gov­ernment would ensure that the entire apparatus of government is deployed to ensure that no one threatens Nigeria’s territorial in­tegrity, the lives or livelihoods of any Nigerian living anywhere in the federation.

“Our objective is to provide the environment for a prosper­ous nation, a nation where all re­gardless of ethnicity or religion can pursue their legitimate aspi­rations peacefully and securely.”

The meeting was attended by the representative of the Sen­ate President, Ibn N’Allah, who is also the Deputy Senate Leader; the Speaker of the House of Rep­resentatives, Hon. Yakubu Doga­ra; the Chief of Staff to the Presi­dent, Abba Kyari; the Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Og­bonaya Onu; the Minister of the Interior, Abdulrahman Danbaz­zau; the National Security Advis­er (NSA), Babagana Munguno and the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Gabriel Olonishakin.

The traditional rulers who were led by the Sultan of Soko­to, Abubakar Sa’ad, included Dr. Yahaya Abubakar, the Etsu Nupe from Niger State. the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II; Ibrahim Sulu Gambari, the Emir of Ilorin; Alhaji Mustapha Agwai II, the Emir of Lafia; Jacob Buba Jang, the Gbong Gwon Jos.

Others were Ndakwo Ameh Oboni II, the Attah Igala; Prof. James Ayatse, the Tor Tiv; Ad­amu Buba Baba Yinusa, the Emir of Abaji, FCT; Alhaji Mu­hammed Isah Muhammed, the Emir of Jama’a in Kaduna State; and Justice Lawal Hassan, the Emir of Gumi and Coordinator of the Northern Traditional Rul­ers’ Council.
