Read President Jonathan's New Year Message To Nigerians


Dear Compatriots,

I greet and felicitate with you all as we enter the year 2014 which promises to be a momentous one for our country for several reasons, including the fact that it is also the year of our great nation’s centenary celebrations. I join you all in giving thanks to God Almighty for guiding us and our beloved nation safely through all the challenges of the outgoing year to the beginning of 2014.

Exactly 100 years ago today, on January 1, 1914, the British Colonial authorities amalgamated what was then the separate Protectorates of Southern Nigeria and Northern Nigeria, giving birth to the single geopolitical entity known as Nigeria. For us therefore, today is not just the beginning of a new year, but the end of a century of national existence and the beginning of another. It is a moment for sober reflection an…

Ibrahimovic urges Messi to join PSG

Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes signing Lionel Messi would take Paris Saint-Germain to the next level and make them European title contenders. According to Skysports, rumours in the French media have suggested the big-spending Paris side are preparing a record bid for Barcelona’s Argentina playmaker. Ibrahimovic played alongside Messi during his two-year spell at Camp Nou but struggled to forge a successful partnership with the diminutive forward. However, the Sweden international believes the addition of his former team-mate and four-time Ballon d’Or winner would make PSG a force to be reckoned with in Europe. “If he’s up for sale then the whole world will be after him, not just PSG,” Ibrahimovic said at a winter training camp in Doha. “I don’t know the situation but I think he’s very happy at Barcelona.(read more after the cut)

Kanye West And Kim Kardashian Named Worst Neighbours Of 2013

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have been named as the worst neighbours of 2013 in a new survey.
Theyhad the dubious honour of taking first place in the poll by real estate website Zillow in their Celebrity Neighbour Survey. A quarter of Americans surveyed in the list named West and Kardashian as the least desirable neighbours of the year. 

Zillow’s Chief Marketing Officer Amy Bohutinsky said: “No one wants to live next door to a family who has cameras following them everywhere and seems to seek out as much attention as possible. However, with more than one-third of surveyed Americans preferring a non-celebrity neighbor, what remains clear is that many people don’t want to live next to any celebrity, regardless of why they are famous.”
16 per cent of people surveyed claimed that Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber would be the worst neighbours imaginable, with 4 per cent plumping for Lady Gaga instead. Comedian …

Jonathan Celebrates the last sunday of 2013 with Nigerians

Yesterday, President Goodluck Jonathan spoke before the congregation at the Sunday church service in Apostolic Faith Church in Jabi, Abuja.
Among other things, he recalled how he rose from a tiny community in Bayelsa State to become President of Nigeria by the grace of God and thanks to support of the people.
He also noted that lack of love and unity has been the greatest problem facing Nigeria today.
"We will try our best, but this is not the time to reel out what we are doing or what we are not doing, otherwise they will think I am here to campaign," the President said. "But I assure you, this congregation, and, indeed all Nigerians, that by the will of God and your support, I am here today from nowhere. "Any child of Nigeria can be where I am. I come from the smallest state in this country, even within the state, one of the smallest communities in Bayelsa state. Even within the community, one of the smallest families, but I am here today by the grac…

Obasanjo guilty of his allegations against Jonathan –Tunde Bakare

The Serving Overseer of the Latter Rain Assembly, Lagos, Pastor Tunde Bakare, says former President Olusegun Obasanjo is guilty of the sundry allegations he levelled against President Goodluck Jonathan in his (Obasanjo) recent letter to the President. Bakare, who said this during his sermon in his church in Lagos on Sunday, noted that the former President’s letter to Jonathan painted a portrait of Obasanjo himself while he was in office as the nation’s helmsman. Obasanjo had written an 18-page letter to Jonathan, calling the President’s attention to critical issues in the polity, which he believed could plunge the nation into chaos if not urgently addressed before they degenerated. Jonathan had responded to the ex-President letter, where he tried to justify his actions and policies while calling Obasanjo to produce the evidence to back up his claims, especially the former President’s assertion that Jonathan was raising about 1,000 st…

Pastor Tunde Bakare Says The President Sent Him A Cow For Xmas! El-Rufai Reacts

Here is what tunde bakare has to say concerning the cow;                                                                    I had a cow from the presidency. I didn’t ask for it. They dropped it at the Save Nigerian Group (SNG) office. But is it cow that we need? If you check their books, one cow was bought for $5000g. The rest of the money is pocketed. We don’t need cow, we need a country that will move forward. They prevailed on not to return it. Thanks for the cow, but no thanks! That means no cow for me next year. (Laughs). But we will have good roads, schools etc! We are the cause of our problem. We feel big. Mr President sent me hampers etc. We go to them for contracts etc. Until we change ourselves, we cannot expect change from those who lead us. Nasir El-Rufai ‏is also presently with Pastor Tunde Bakare. He announced he was going to meet with his ‘egbon’ (the pastor) this morning on twitter. Apparently, Pastor Tunde told him about the cow, and you trust El-…

Put your mouth where God puts it- Cradinal Okojie tells Chris Okotie

Former Bishop of Lagos, retired Cardinal Anthony Okojie has finally reacted to the offensive remark made by Chris Okotie of Household of God where he said all Catholics will go to hell because they worship Satan and are led by an anti-Christ Pope.
Reacting, Cardinal Okojie said Okotie needs to watch what he says or he'll be disgraced

“It is always good to talk on what you know, not on what you do not know. The problem we have today is that a lot of people put their mouth in what does not concern them because they want people to know that they too are there; that they can be reckoned with. “I don’t think that is the way to do things, no. I think the best thing is to always put your mouth where God puts it, if you don’t want to be disgraced.” Okojie said

Lamar Odom Finally Takes Off His Ring

                                                                          Days after Khloe Kardashian filed the divorce documents that told the world she didn’t want him to be her Lammy anymore, basketball player Lamar Odom has taken off his wedding ring.

Few days ago, Lamar was seen leaving an L.A. nightclub, and he made sure that the waiting cameramen got a good shot of the big silver wedding ring still on his finger.
But no longer. It appears that Lamar has decided to ditch his marital bling for good. Photographers snapped him wearing a black sweatshirt, black workout shorts, and holding a cell phone.however, the silver ring is nowhere in sight.
As for Khloe, she hasn’t been spotted with her ring at all since filing for divorce on December 13. Lamar was a bit slower to take it off — perhaps trying to send the message that this decision was Khloe’s, not his — but it now seems like he’s ready to ditch the bling and make a public statement that he’s ready to move on.
Now …

Chelsea Is killing Me-Jose Mourinho Says

Jose Mourinho is starting to feel drained at having to watch his Chelsea team hang on for scrambling victories despite dominating opponents, the manager said after Thursday’s 1-0 Premier League win over Swansea City.
The 2012 European champions were always in control at Stamford Bridge but only had Eden Hazard’s first-half goal to show for their superiority.
“They kill me every game,” said a smiling Mourinho after Chelsea climbed to third in the Premier League, two points behind leaders Arsenal.
“Every game I am tired at the end. At half-time we should all be relaxed with a comfortable score but time goes on, we didn’t score the second goal and you feel the opponent is keen to risk a bit more and put in a second striker and you are a bit in trouble,” he said.
“But the boys worked hard defensively and in the last part they looked comfortable and we had control of the game…

How Goodluck Jonathan Lied To Nigerians

Mr. Jonathan had claimed on Thursday that the media quoted him out of context in their reporting of the remark he made at a Christmas Day service that the war against insurgency in Nigeria could not be totally won.
In the statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Reuben Abati, the president lambasted a section of the media for carrying headlines, which, in his estimation, suggested that the war against terrorisms might never be won in the country.
He particularly criticised two headlines “Terrorism Has Come to Stay” and Insurgency Far From Over – Jonathan” by two newspapers he did not name, saying they were most incongruous with the thrust of his remarks and amounted to taking extreme editorial liberties with his comment at the church service.
Mr. Jonathan, accompanied by members of his family, his aides and some ministers, worshipped at the cathedral church of the Advent,…
