Nigeria Centre for Disease Control Project Director, Dr. Abdulsalami
Nasidi, has said that the health ministry is monitoring about 400 people
in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, for signs of Ebola after they came in
contact with a Port Harcourt doctor who died of the disease but hid the
fact that he had been exposed. Nasidi
said this on Thursday in Geneva, saying that there is a sense of
“hopelessness” due to the lack of proven drugs or vaccines to treat
Ebola that has infected 18 people in the country. In an
interview with Reuters, he said that more isolation wards were being
opened in the oil industry hub but voiced confidence that there would
not be “many cases” there.

A 16-year-old schoolboy has been found dead, hours after collecting his GCSE exam results. The death of Temidayo Joseph, who was also known as Simon or Dayo, was announced on Friday morning by Ockendon Academy near Thurrock, Essex, where he was a pupil. Mr Joseph, who was a talented footballer and athlete, had been at the school on Thursday to collect his results. The circumstances of the teenager’s death are not yet known but it is not being treated as suspicious. In
the statement on the school’s website, it said: ‘It is with great
sadness we have to tell you of the death of one of our students,
16-year-old Temidayo Joseph.
Rumors of divorce have plagued Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon for
months. On Thursday, Cannon finally spoke out about the headlines and
confirmed that they may be headed toward a split.
“There is trouble in paradise. We have been living in separate houses for a few months,” Cannon told “The Insider with Yahoo” adding, “My main focus is my kids.” He and Carey have 3-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
While you can never really
bet on a celebrity marriage to go the distance — and who knows how it
will all go, though TMZ says a divorce is imminent — this A-list couple
made a whirlwind six-week courtship and subsequent marriage last almost
six years. Pop powerhouse Carey, 44, and “America’s Got Talent” host
Cannon, 33, got hitched in 2008 at a surprise ceremony at Carey’s house in the Bahamas, calling each other “soulmates.”

I’ll love to appeal to Nigerian entertainers to stop
the habit of going about cap in hand begging for votes each time they
are nominated for awards. If your materials are good enough and the
award process is transparent, I see no reason why you should go about
embarrassingly soliciting for votes like a politician. No award should be given based on public opinion.
There should be a “competent” panel of judges selected to review the
nominated materials and advise the organisers who the winners should be.
It calls to question the motives of award organisers. Same goes for the
numerous music talent shows in Nigeria today. Have you ever wondered why
all telecoms companies in Nigeria have a talent hunt show
attached to their names? It is very simple. Television is the biggest
means of communication in the country today. It reaches millions of
people residing in cities, towns and villages (those who are lucky
enough to have electricity). You can find a wide variety of

So i told you'all that Ribadu has migrated to PDP,well here is the statement he posted on his facebook page today...
My good friends,
I know how difficult it may be for you to come to terms with my defection to another party. But I must assure you that it’s a carefully considered decision for which I do not wish to hurt anyone’s feeling. I’ll not embark on a needless animosity with my good friends, irrespective of political, religious, regional and ethnic affiliations.
Let me quickly make it known that I did not issue a statement disparaging APC and its members, including Governors Amaechi, Kwankwaso… These were clearly fabricated, expected backlash, by mischievous characters interested in misleading the public and drawing a picture of non-existent feuds between me and my good friends....Continue........
