"You can't oppose and support oppression at the same time" LGBTQ activist, Pamela Adie tackles those who support Blacklivesmatter campaign and also support oppression of gays

Pamela Adie, a Nigerian gay rights activist, says it is ironic for people to support the Black lives Matter campaign and in the same vein support the oppression of LGBTQs.

In a tweet posted on her handle, Pamela says oppression of any kind is the same.

''You know what’s ironic? People who say “Black Lives Matter” but support oppression of LGBTQ people. You cannot oppose oppression and support oppression at the same time. Oppression is oppression, and you’re either with the oppressors or against them. No middle ground.''

APC screening committee disqualifies Godwin Obaseki

The Screening Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has disqualified Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, from contesting in the party’s governorship primary election scheduled for June 22, 2020.

Obaseki and five other aspirants were screened by the committee earlier this week to validate their credentials and grant them clearance to vie for the party's ticket to contest in the September 19 governorship election.

However, when the seven-member committee led by Professor Jonathan Ayuba presented its report to the party's National Working Committee on Friday, June 12, the committee said Obaseki and two other candidates were not cleared.

Prof. Jonathan Ayuba said the governor did not present his Higher School Leaving Certificate.

Ayuba noted that the committee could not ascertain the authenticity of his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate.

Ayuba said the committee recommended that he is not eligible to contest in the election.

Dr. Pius Odubu and Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu were cleared to contest.

Earlier on Wednesday, Obaseki expressed fears that he might not get justice from the screening committee as the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, was involved in the process.

Mother slams critics after photos of her 5-year-old daughter with a face full of heavy makeup went viral (video)

A mother has hit back at people who criticized her for using heavy makeup on her 5-year-old daughter.

Days ago, the little girl went viral when photos from her birthday shoot were shared online.

A number of Nigerians criticized the photo and slammed the mother for dressing her daughter in a bikini and using heavy makeup on her.

The mother has now slammed those who called her out. Adewale Yetunde Adedeji, the mother of 5-year-old Adewale Okiki, said she has been sick and couldn't respond to the critics but had to after the calls and messages became too much.

She informed her critics that the child is hers and she can do whatever she likes to make her happy. She added that her daughter likes it too and so does her husband and those who matter.

She proceeded to bring her 5-year-old daughter to speak.

"My name is Okiki Adewale. I am 5 years old. I do what I like, I like what I do," the little girl said.

The child's mother then went on to call out Nigerians for interfering in what goes on in her family. As she spoke, a man's voice is heard in the background supporting her.

She told her critics that she will do even more for her daughter next year. She told Nigerians that poverty and frustration is the reason why they have a problem with her daughter wearing makeup.

"Poverty na bastard," she said as she asked Nigerians to change their mentality.

She also advised them to direct their outrage to Aso Rock where the real cause of their problem is.

Reacting to threats that "human rights" will come after her, she said they wouldn't dare. She asked where the human rights people have been all those years when she's been taking care of her daughter, even in sickness.

She told her critics that sharing the photos of her daughter to call her out only served to make her daughter more popular. She said she has received calls from brands and from people in foreign countries asking to work with her daughter. She claimed that CNN even carried her daughter's story.

She stated that she and her husband have received multiple calls and messages from Germany and UK, asking to work with her child.

She added that the fact that she uses makeup on her children doesn't mean they will become prostitutes in the future.

She pointed out that there are people who wear hijab who get raped, babies also, so dressing her daughter in a bikini will not be a reason for a rapist to come after her child.

She further stated that those who are calling her out are just frustrated people who are finding it hard to have children of their own.

''I wish Oshiomole well'' Godwin Obaseki reacts to APC's decision to disqualify him from Edo governorship race

Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki, has reacted to the decision of the APC to disqualify him from participating in the party's governorship primaries slated for June 22, 2020.

The chairman of the screening committee, Prof. Jonathan Ayuba, today announced that Obaseki and two others did not meet the requirement set by the APC to participate in the primaries.

Reacting to the development, Obaseki in a statement released by his spokesman, Crusoe Osagie, said he had initially mentioned that going by the manner in which activities leading to the primaries were being held, there was no way he would get a fair assessment in the run-up to the nomination of candidates to fly the flag of the party in the forthcoming Edo gubernatorial election.

He said it is unfortunate that this “open show of shame, illegality, and travesty of justice is the brand of democracy which Comrade Oshiomhole has reduced the APC to”.

The governor added that he will not be appealing the party's decision to disqualify him and wished Oshiomole well.

“We have therefore decided that it would be an effort in futility to appeal whatever the unjust outcome of the evaluation and screening process of the APC will be, especially when Comrade Oshiomhole has declared that he is the Supreme Court and ultimate determiner of the fate and future of our great party.

We wish Oshiomhole well in his maladministration of the party and trust that the Almighty will help our country to find the path to true liberty, freedom, and justice,” Obaseki said

Obaseki and Oshiomole have been in a running battle over who controls the affairs of the state. The state governorship election is slated for September 19, 2020.
