My Marriage with Tee Billz is over- Tiwa Savage

Finally, singer Tiwa Savage, has opened up to say her own side of the issues she has in her marriage. Earlier in the week, her husband, Tee Billz, had gone on a social media rant, accusing his wife of infidelity and so many other issues. But in an emotional  video interview with Pulse.ng.com, the singer revealed she had been miserable in her marriage for a long time.
Tiwa said she didn’t really know about what her husband had said online but what mattered to her most was that he should be found alive because he was suicidal. “I just wanted him to be found and make sure he was okay. I couldn’t respond to anything because I didn’t know the extent of what he had said because somebody had actually taken my phone away because they didn’t want me to see what was said online. I was just scared for his life, I was just panicking.  We were in my bedroom, It was around 11am that Banky’s mum came and we were praying. I know his family in LA were praying as well. We got the call that he was f…

Ten Safety Tips when driving in the Rain

The Federal Road Safety Corps has reminded all motorists and other road users to be cautious on the roads as the rainy season has set in.
This is to ensure sanity on the highways during the season even as the Corps also harps on the need for strict compliance with traffic rules and regulations among road users especially during this period.

According to the FRSC’s Public Education Officer, Corps Commander Imoh Etuk, the corps was concerned over the attitude of many drivers. However, here are a few tips to drive safely during this period according to wikiHow;
1. Keep both hands on the steering wheel at all times!
Keep all distractions, such as cell phones or even the radio, off and away from you. While focus to your front do Take a Look in Back View Mirror as well Right Hand side & Left Hand side so that you get an 360 degree over view what is happening around any mud slide or falling tree, electric pole, hanging electrical wires , or in coming hazard etc
2. Turn on your headlights.

New Minimum Wage: Labour Unions Demand 56,000 Naira

The unions made the proposal at a press conference held on Wednesday in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
The President of the NLC, Mr Ayuba Wabba, told reporters that the unions made the formal demand on the proposed national minimum wage to the Federal Government on Tuesday.
The current national minimum wage is 18, 000 Naira.
“I can say now authoritatively that as of yesterday (Tuesday) we made a formal proposal to the Federal Government of 56,000 Naira to be the new minimum wage.
“The demand has been submitted officially to the government and we hope that the tripartite system to look at the review will actually be put set up to look at it.
“Our argument is that, yes, it is true that the economy is not doing well, but the law stated that wages for workers must be reviewed after every five years.
“So, the issue must be looked into by the Federal Government and workers should not be seen as sleeping on their rights,” he said.
‘Long Overdue’
The NLC President further told the conference th…

We will fix lago-ibadan expressway despite court injunction

Funding for the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway is captured in the 2016 budget and the road will be constructed despite court injunctions against its further development, the Federal Government has said. It argued that the development of the country and the lives of the citizens should not be held in abeyance because of a court case or injunctions.
The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, who disclosed this in Abuja on Tuesday, also noted that the Federal Government would pay more attention to developing roads that carried heavy vehicular traffic across once the budget was signed into law. When asked if the government would consider giving out the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to a new concessionaire, Fashola stated that the funding for constructing the road had already been captured in the 2016 budget. He said, “The Lagos-Ibadan road as you know is now the subject of a court case. Injunctions have been obtained to stop the arrangement put in by the last administration to finan…

Review: HTC gets back in the game with its latest Android smartphone

When HTC released its One M7 in 2013, it not only proved that makers of Android smartphones could create phones that were as beautiful as Apple’s, it also pushed competitors like Samsung and LG to finally build handsets that weren’t made of creaky plastic. But with the phones it released since then, HTC seemed to stop innovating, and it quickly fell behind the competition. Which brings us to the new HTC 10. Available for preorder for $700 and on sale in early May, the 10 is the handset that HTC hopes will win you over again and make you forget about Apple’s iPhone 6s and Samsung’s Galaxy S7. Sporting a sleek new look and packing a vastly improved 12-megapixel camera, the 10 stands a fair chance of doing just that. Design and size When HTC unveiled its One M9 last year, the company took a lot of heat for failing to make any meaningful changes to the handset’s design. It was as if HTC simply copied and pasted the plans from 2014’s M8, made a few small tweaks, and called it a day. Worse…

Hands-on with Sony’s PlayStation VR: The virtual reality dark horse

It’s official, 2016 is the year of virtual reality. But you probably can’t afford it.
Systems like Oculus Rift (from Facebook) and HTC Vive (from HTC and Valve) are too pricey for many of us. That’s because in addition to the Rift and Vive’s already hefty price tags — they sell for $600 and $800 respectively — they also require you to have a high-end PC, which will cost you at minimum another $1,000. But there’s a dark horse in the virtual reality wars: Sony’s PlayStation VR. Formally announced back in March, the PSVR is both less expensive than its rivals — bundles run $500 — and doesn’t require a hardcore PC to operate; instead, it runs off your standard PlayStation 4. (The standard PSVR pack will cost $400, but it won’t include the Camera or Move controllers. To get those you’ll have to get the special pre-order bundle for $500 — or else you could presumably purchase everything separately.) I spent some time with the PSVR during a recent press event in New York, and believe that, …

Why early marriage pays

At 26, I was ready for marriage – mentally, psychologically, spiritually, physiologically – but my pocket was not! As the Academic Staff Union of Universities is wont to say: My take-home was not taking me home. In spite of that, I was counted among the lucky few who got a job shortly after graduation. Many saw me as privileged because I went to work in suit and sometimes the office car took me to meetings and events. However, since my salary was not enough to sustain me, I felt it would be selfish of me to bring in a girl to join me at that time. Having a child then would have worsened a bad situation. I was not looking for a billion naira. I just wanted to have enough funds to take care of the basic needs of a family. And I didn’t want my family to take care of my wedding or to feed my children and clothe my wife for me.
So, I waited. I eventually got ready at 32 and married at 33. That was late by my expectation, but that was the earliest I could marry. I wish I was ready earlier.…

One-Time Slave Harriet Tubman to be the new face of US$20 bill

The one-time slave turned abolitionist Harriet Tubman was named Wednesday as the new face of the $20 banknote, the first time an African American has featured on US currency.
A sweeping redesign of the US bills to be unveiled in four years will also protect Alexander Hamilton’s central place on the $10 note, once thought threatened until Broadway’s hit hip-hop musical “Hamilton” made the 18th century US finance chief a modern-day star.
Hamilton’s latter-day successor, Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew, announced the changes slated for the $5, $10, and $20 notes after more than a year of lobbying and polling, with heavy pressure for a female figure to take place on a US banknote.

An open poll of more than 600,000 people had strongly favored Tubman, a hero to African Americans for her escape from slavery in Maryland in 1849 to help run the legendary Underground Railroad that helped thousands of slaves flee to freedom in the 19th century.
The announcement brought widespread cheers.
“A woman,…

EFCC Uncovers 37395 Ghost Workers in Federal Civil Service

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission said in Abuja on Tuesday that it had detected 37,395 ghost workers on the payroll of the federal civil service. The News Agency of Nigeria reported that the Acting Chairman of INEC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, announced the figure at an anti-corruption sensitisation programme. Magu said that apart from the widespread procurement frauds in Ministries, Departments and Agencies, the issue of ghost workers was a source of serious concern for the commission.
He said that current investigations by the EFCC had revealed that the Federal Government lost about N1bn to ghost workers recently. “The EFCC has uncovered 37,395 ghost workers in the federal civil service. And investigation is still going on. “Our investigations have so far revealed that the Federal Government has lost close to N1bn to these ghost workers. “The figure will definitely increase as we unravel more ghost workers buried deep in the federal civil service payrolls,” he said. Magu also s…

Be ready to Jail 5000 Pastors, PFN tells el-rufai

The Kaduna State Chapter of the Pentecostal  Fellowship of Nigeria, on Tuesday, said the over 5,000 pastors in the PFN would rather obey God than obey the proposed preaching bill currently before the state House of Assembly when passed into law. The state PFN chairman, Prof. Femi Ehinmidu, who spoke at a stakeholders’ roundtable conference in Kaduna, expressed concern on the bill being sponsored by the state government.
Ehinmidu told the state government to be ready to jail the over 5,000 pastors in the state’s PFN if the government believed it could muzzle the citizens to pass the bill into law. He argued that the bill remained a recipe for crisis in the state when passed into law. Ehinmidu pointed out that unless the government carried out wider consultations among critical stakeholders, the bill, which he claimed started on a faulty note, was bound to fail. The Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, has, however, cautioned religious leaders against politicising the bill b…

Diabetes Cure Revealed

If you have diabetes, what I’m about to share with  you in this post could prevent you from having a premature heart attack, save your eyesight, kidneys, legs, and nerves—even save your life. www.healthvitalneeds.com Diabetes has a devastating effect on virtually every system in the body. This is what sets the stage for a variety of diabetic complications. But, as I will explain, this devastation is largely preventable if you consistently do the following: Avoid High Fat Animal Diet (Such as Red Meat and The Fats in Meats) There is an enzyme called GnT-4a.This enzyme is responsible for enabling the production of Insulin from the pancreas. When this enzyme is not available, insulin production is altered. www.healthvitalneeds.com
Scientific studies have found that eating high amounts of animal fats like red meats from cows, goats, dogs, lambs etc disrupts the production of this hormone, hence limiting or making the production of Insulin less likely by the pancreas. When Insulin is no…

Sexual Issues and Solutions

TRUE FACTS ABOUT THE PENIS (IV) As a matter of fact, about one-sixth to one-third of men worldwide are circumcised (their foreskin removed), usually for religious or hygiene reasons. Judgments differ as to whether it’s a good idea or not, but it’s largely agreed that circumcision makes a penis less sensitive. The average man has 11 erections during the day, 9 erections during the night, and will ejaculate 7200 times in his life time and one teaspoon of semen only has seven calories.
But let’s be real, it technically has zero since you’ll either spit it out, throw it up, or avoid it altogether My penis is very small compared to my mates and I’m about 35 years of age. I use to disregard the fact until recently that it is starting to affect me psychologically. What penis enlarger can I use that will give a permanent result and will have no side effect – Umoh There are very safe penis enlargers that give a permanent result. Vigrx plus is a herbal supplement for this purpose that cause …

Surgary Drinks Can cause certain cancer- Study

Researchers in a new study reported on Tuesday at the American Society for Nutrition annual meeting in San Diego that people who consume a lot of processed carbohydrates, think snack foods and sweets and sugary drinks may face heightened risks of breast and prostate cancers. According to Webmd, given that breast and prostate cancers are two of the most common cancers in the United States, the connection gives more reason for people to cut processed foods from their diets, a lead researcher Nour Makarem has said.
Makarem, a Ph.D. candidate in nutrition at New York University said, “The carbohydrate quality of your diet matters for a number of reasons.” In general, health experts already recommend limiting sugary drinks and processed carbohydrates, and eating more fruits, vegetables, legumes, fiber-rich whole grains and “good” unsaturated fats. Makarem added that the new findings, though considered preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed medical journal adds more weight to that …

How to Become a Tech Entrepreneur

A Tech Entrepreneur will argue that there is no entrepreneurship without technology.

The fact is they both work together, especially today where technology has levelled the playing field in such a way that you can start a business in your home or office.
However, you have to learn some basic element or skill to be able to maximize this opportunity.
The CEO, Precise Financial Systems, Yele Okeremi, joins us on Tech Trends to discuss how entrepreneurs can leverage on the present technology to scale their businesses.

Statistics shows that half of all start-ups fail within their first five years.
In a study carried out by small Business Administration, only 44% of firms formed in 1998 were still around only four years later.

Nigerian Troops Clear BokoHaram Out of Biggoro and Warpaya

Troops Clear Boko Haram Terrorists Out Of Biggoro And Warpaya

Troops have killed two Boko Haram members and rescued two children as they clear terrorists in some villages of Bama Local Government Area.


A statement by the Nigerian Army spokesman, Colonel Sani Usman, said that troops of 7 Division Strike Group Team B and 22 Task Force Brigade made the feat.
