See what Ed Sheeran did that's got the world hailing him as the perfect gentleman (photos)

Ed Sheeran and his girlfriend, Cheery Seaborn, were guests at a BRITs after-party attended by a number of celebrities but what he did after the party is what has set him apart and put his name in the mouth of everyone.

While leaving the Cîroc Warner after-party, Cherry's heels broke and instead of leaving her to manage on her own, the Thinking Out Loud singer took off his trainers and gave them to her to wear then he held her broken sandals for her then walked in his socks alone.

The 25-year-old star has always been outspoken about his love for Cheery whom he's known since high school and he has hinted that he would likely get married to her and start a family. His show of chivalry towards her is evidence that he is not just all talks.

Caitlyn Jenner lashes out at Donald Trump’s Transgender Bathroom bill

Republican and transgender activist, Caitlyn Jenner, who was a great supporter of Donald Trump is speaking out against President Donald Trump‘s latest move to lift federal protections for transgender students, which Pres Obama ordered. Obama's federal order stated that transgender students should be allowed to use public school bathrooms that matched their chosen gender identity. President Trump rolled back the order and gave the authority to states to decide on what to do.
Apparently Caitlyn Jenner, missed the part which said it was up to each individual state to either allow transgender people use any bathroom or not because, Jenner released a video statement on various social media platforms lashing out at the President, saying he should call her. She said:

“I have a message for the trans kids of America: You’re winning. I know it doesn’t feel like it today or every day, but you’re winning,” Jenner said. “Very soon, we will win full freedom nation-wide and it’s going to be with bipartisan support. You can help by checking out the National Center for Transgender Equality and letting Washington hear you loud and clear.” Watch the video below:
Well @realDonaldTrump, from one Republican to another, this is a disaster. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me.— Caitlyn Jenner (@Caitlyn_Jenner) February 24, 2017

Operatives of the Rapid Response Squad of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested two cable vandals from Oyo and Jigawa States. The first vandal, Bayo Agboola, 30, from Oyo State, a cart pusher, was arrested at 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday, at Oba Akran Road, Ikeja, with an armoured saw and two sets of cutting pliers trying to cut a cable from an unlit lamp post.

Usman, who was also arrested with a hand-saw and two pieces of cut cables measuring up to 2 meters each, said:

"I bought them from a friend minutes before I was arrested…. I purchased it at a cost of N500 from another cart pusher around 3:30 a.m. because my Boss, Mandela, buys anything electrical from us…. He buys cable at a very good price."The two suspects have been transferred to Lagos State Taskforce for prosecution.

Don't abandon Buhari, continue praying for him, CAN tells Christians

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has once again asked its member to continue praying for President Muhammadu Buhari until he returns back to the country hale and hearty from the United Kingdom where he has been since January 10,2017.

The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina, on Tuesday in Abuja said the results of President’s medical tests suggested further rest.
In a swift reaction to the new development, the CAN President, Rev Dr Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, on Thursday in Abuja, urged all well-meaning Nigerians especially Christians not to cease praying for the President, the acting President and the country until he returns in good health and sound mind.

Ayokunle, in a statement issued and signed on his behalf by his Special Assistant (Media and Communications); Pastor Adebayo Oladeji reminds Christians that it is their responsibility to pray for the country and her leaders in season and out of season.

“I call on all well meaning Nigerians, especially Christians not to cease praying for President Muhammadu Buhari as he takes further rest as advised by his doctors until he returns back to the country hale and hearty to continue his good works.

“It is needless reminding you that as Christians, our responsibilities include but not limited to making supplications, prayers, and intercessions, and giving thanks for our leaders and for all that are in the position of authority, ‘that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour…’” (1 Timothy 2:1-2).

The CAN President also allayed fears being expressed in some quarters that the prolonged absence of Buhari has created a vacuum in the Presidency cited the transfer of power to the Vice President “who is up to the task” unlike what happened during the Presidency of the late Umaru Yar Adua.

“We don’t see the need for any hue and cry being made by some people that his unprecedented absence could create a vacuum in the Presidency since President Buhari has done what is needful by transferring power to the Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo who is up to the task.

“The Church should also continue praying for him for divine wisdom, knowledge and understanding as he discharges his constitutional responsibilities.”

Meanwhile, Ayokunle called on the security agencies to rise up to the security challenges in the Southern Kaduna by flushing out the hoodlums who are still killing the innocent people despite the presence of policemen and soldiers in the area.

“We call on the security agencies in the country to stop the killings in Kafanchan despite their presence in the area, we heard of recent attacks in Atakar and Kaninkon villages of Kaura and Jema’a local government areas in the state”.

“All hands should be on deck to flush out those criminals from their hideouts in order to restore a permanent peace to the Southern Kaduna communities once and for all.”

Lagos state House of Assembly member asks FG to stop airing BB Nigeria, says its against our values as Nigerians

A member of the Lagos state House of Assembly, Segun Olulade, has called on the Federal government to direct the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission NBC to stop airing the reality TV show, Big Brother Nigeria.

In a statement released today, Chairman, Lagos State House of Assembly Committee on Health Services, Olulade, said the show is not in anyway promoting African values. According to him, the content of the show is aline to the values and culture of Nigeria. His statement in part reads;

“We have culture and tradition in this country that we must not allow to die. The Federal Government, through the Minister of Information and Culture, needs to reconsider the implications of Big Brother Naija on our culture and youths. The content of Big Brother Naija reality show is alien to our culture. This show is contrary to the rich cultural values we are trying to promote and bring to the front burner. It is sad that our young children including adults are made to watch such content. This kind of programme promotes obscenity and immorality. We must not encourage such if our hallowed cultural heritage would be preserved. We cannot prevent our inquisitive young ones from watching the obscene displays that permeate the show. I think the Nigeria Broadcasting Commission (NBC) should, without delay, stop this programme if this government means business in the promotion of our cultural values. The show does not add any value to our education, social and economic life. It is a big mockery of Nigerian culture and tradition. I will want to urge all parents and guardians to be on their guard and guide their children and wards aright on what they watch on TV. The implication of allowing the children to keep watching this show can be negative. Our children should not be allowed to be corrupt because this may affect their future aspiration,”
