BBnaija finalists tell it all as they campaign for votes

The top 5 finalists in the Big Brother Naija reality show competition were asked by Big Brother to give speeches telling the public why they should vote for them. They were given only 40 minutes to get dressed and prepare for the speech.

While speaking, Efe who is from Delta state was almost in tears as he recounted how he had to work hard in order to survive.
He defined his name stating that An Efe is anybody working hard to make it in life

Who is Efe ? Efe is that boy from Delta state. Efe is that graduate of economics in unijos!!! No!!!! Efe is you that is trying to get yourself together. Efe is that mother that sacrificed everything to make sure her child gets an education. Efe is that boy that helps his mum to sell pepper but knows in his heart that he will get better.. Efe is you, using generator to watch tv, read, .... Efe is you trying to put your two feets on the ground against all odds Because rain is falling doesn't mean you won't go and hustle Because the road is bad doesn't mean you won't go out..

Bisola during her speech thanked everybody who has voted and is till voting for her, she revealed that she didn't go to the University due to financial constraints and sometimes feel insecure when other talk about their university days. She talked about growing up, saying that even though her name means 'born into wealth', that hasn't been the case for her.

"I usually have a complex but i don't let that complex take over situations and me. I have never being in the university before. I'm not a graduate. So sometimes i feel envious when I hear people or the housemates talk about what they did in school. It wasn't because I wasn't intelligent enough to be in the university but because I didn't have the fund to do so. I still struggled and told my self, you know what Bisola you have a talent which can feed you. You should not let the circumstance you find yourself throw you down"

Tboss, while giving her speech said she came into the house a princess but is leaving as a queen and she's saying it in all humility. She thanked everybody who voted for her till now. She revealed she has no idea why they kept saving her and suggested it was because they probably saw beneath her piercings and tattoos.
"In all sense of humility, I'm a princess, I came into this house a boss lady. The truth is, right now I stand before you all a queen because I feel like I have grown. I came here thinking I was amazing and I'm taking this money home. Then I got stocked up with these people who are different from me, their orientation, upbringing and everything but I struggled and made it to top 5. I want to say I did this myself. People out there kept me here. I want to say thank you to them for investing in me"

Marvis took a more funny approach in her speech saying she needs to win because W.I.N is in her body. she described herself as a go getter and has accomplished things she thought she would never have. She used the pidgin english to give most of her speech

My people, I die put, i cry put, even times when i dey form honesty, I lie put. So abeg, pick me, no pick me like nose wey you fit throwaway but pick like beans so i fit stay so i go fit win.

Debbie Rise who was the last to speak said she didn't have her family's blessing to come on the show but she ran away from home not because she wants to be rebellious but because she wants to be an example to everyone to chase their dreams at all cost.
"I ran away from home to be here because there was something I believed in. I wanted to be more than the usual and not just for myself. I wanted to be able bridge the gap and meet people at the point of their needs. I ran away from home not because I wanted to be rebellious but because we have a standard and doctrines and principles and I was scared to be alone. I want just want to prove a point that this career, this passion that I have to be an inspiration and a sense of motivation to girls."

According to Florida authorities, he was on Wednesday charged with over 40 counts of child sex abuse, providing obscene material to minors, lewd and lascivious behavior on a victim younger than 12, and an additional charge on a victim age 12 to 16 after the victims came forward with sexual assault claims.

No child of God should ever suffer such horror- Donald Trump explains why he attacked Syrian airfield

Donald Trump gave a statement on Thursday night after the US attacked the Syrian base in retaliation to what he has described the chemical attack in Idlib province which killed several men, women and children as an “affront to humanity”. Trump said the photos of the dead Syrian people affected him profoundly and transformed his thinking about the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad. He called on 'all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types'. Read his full statement after the cut...

My fellow Americans, on Tues Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians. Using a deadly nerve agent, Assad choked out the lives of helpless men women and children
It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack.
No child of god should ever suffer such horror.
Tonight I ordered a targeted mil strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched. It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons. There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the chemical weapons convention, and ignored the urging of the UN security council.
Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all failed and failed very dramatically.
As a result, the refugee crisis continues to deepen and the region continues to destabilize, threatening the United States and its allies.
Tonight I call on all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria and also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types
We ask for God's wisdom as we face the challenge of our very troubled world. We pray for the lives of the wounded and for the souls of those who have passed. And we hope that as long as America stands for justice, that peace and harmony will in the end prevail
Goodnight and God bless America and the entire world.
Thank you.

"We will not accept any excuse that leaves part of this pension funds hanging- Dogara

Hon Yakubu Dogara, Speaker of the House of Representatives, on Thursday, urged the executive branch to ensure that all backlog of pension payments are promptly made, adding that no excuse will be accepted for failure to do so. Dogara made this statement after the minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun and Minister of Budget and Planning, Sen Udoma Udo Udoma, briefed the House on efforts they had made so far to offset arrears owed to Nigerian pensioners.

The Speaker said he was confident of the promise made by President Muhammadu Buhari that non-payment of pensions to retired Federal civil servants will be promptly taken care of. He said payment of the 33 percent arrears, should be made preferably within a month.

He said:

"We will not accept any excuse that leaves part of this pension funds hanging. When the President made a commitment that he was going to release money for bailout to States so that they can pay backlog of salaries and pensions, it happened, even though we were in the midst of a very biting recession. Now the President has said this issue of pension must be solved.

"I don't know where you got the money to bail out the states from, wherever you got the money from, that is where we are going to get the money to solve this problem. And for the ministers who are representatives of the president, I believe you won't make him (Buhari) break his words because his words are cherished. I want to believe this will be the last intervention we will be having with regards to the issue of pensions in this country. That is my charge.

"The message the House will be sending to the President through the Ministers is, when you meet him to brief him about this engagement, just tell him that we have taken his words to the bank and we believe that we will cash it."

In his remarks, president of National Union of Pensioners (NUP), Dr Abel Afolayan, thanked President Muhammadu Buhari, Speaker Dogara and the House of Representatives for listening to their issues and taking action.

Wife of Former President Obasanjo claims her twin brother and future daughter-in-law are in collusion to assassinate her

Wife of Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Mrs Taiwo Obasanjo claims that her twin brother, Chief Kenny Martins, her future-daughter-in-law, Tope Adebutu ( daughter of lotto boss, Baba Ijebu) and future mother-in-law, Ms Rosemary Dacosta, hired certain people to assassinate her after a court action she filed last month to postpone her son’s wedding.
In a petition to the Commissioners of Police, Lagos State, which was dated 4 April, 2017, Mrs Obasanjo alleged:

” I was reliably informed that the three person mentioned above have perfected their plans to assassinate me because I requested the court to shift the wedding date of my son from the month of May to June 2017. Please continue....

“They also have a plan to start smear campaign on my person using various media platforms such as newspaper, internet etc..
Mrs Obasanjo’s petition to the Police Commissioner, Lagos

“Their third plan is to frame me up on false charges and get me arrested and detained by the police from the 10th -14th May, 2017 and also to involve the military police to achieve their plans.

“Sir, this issue reported here is neither a small matter nor a figment of my imagination because sometime during the time of late Head of State , Gen. Abacha, when Daddy Obasanjo was in prison, the late Stella Obasanjo got the military to detain me at DMI Apapa by Frank Omenka on false charges

“Sir, what is unfolding now is not a wedding preparation but a desperate attempt to kill me because I told Rosemary Dacosta and her daughter Tope Adebutu to allow the wedding to hold after the month of May 2017.

“Chief Kenny Martins is the leader of the planned assassination on my life. Sir, I am reporting this issue so that you can please use your good office to step in to the situation because there is a deep strange desperation attached to the wedding of my son which is now do or die wedding ceremony for them.”

When contacted, Chief Martins declined to comment on the petition, saying he was not aware of any petition by anybody against him.

“I don’t have any petition from the police on my table so I don’t react to what is not before me,” he said.

Ms Dacosta also refused to comment on petition, saying she is not interested in whatever anybody has said or saying about her.

“I don’t wanted to listen to anybody. I have no say on what is happening because I don’t know anybody. Thank you so much and bye bye,”

Anambra state Speaker Rita Maduagwu absconds with Mace to avoid impeachment

There was commotion in the Anambra State House of Assembly on Thursday after 28 members of the House had assembled at the hallowed chamber to make moves to impeach the speaker of the house, Mrs. Rita Maduagwu. When the Speaker noticed the move, she disappeared from the room with the mace, which is a symbol of authority of the legislative House.

According to reports, Governor of Anambra state, Chief Willie Obiano, heard about the impeachment move and drove to the House of Assembly complex to intervene.
The governor addressed the 28 members of the House who were members of the APGA, and tried to make a case for Mrs. Maduagwu not to be impeached but his argument fell on deaf ears. When the Speaker realized that the members were insistent on carrying out their mission, she absconded with the mace, unnoticed.

When the bell that signified her entry into the chambers rang several times, the Speaker was nowhere to be found.

Her absence made the Majority Leader, Victor Okoye, adjourn the sitting till Tuesday, April 11.

Speaking with journalists, Mr. Onyebuchi Offor, representing Ekwusigo constituency said:

“We came this morning to hold our normal session, only to be disappointed that the Speaker had absconded with the mace.
We have had poor leadership under Rita Maduagwu. But I’m assuring you that justice must prevail. No matter where she runs to, we have determined to take a decision on the leadership of this House. There is no going back, because we are here to serve Anambra people well.”
