"They’ll find a way to let him back on”- Bill Gates says Trump should be allowed to return to social media


"They?ll find a way to let him back on?- Bill Gates says Trump should be allowed to return to social media

Billionaire Microsoft co-founder, Bill Gates has stated that former U.S. president, Donald Trump should eventually have his social media accounts re-activated. 

Twitter cut the former president off from some 88 million followers after the deadly riot on Jan. 6, when a group of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol while Congress was certifying President Biden's victory, leaving five people, including a U.S. Capitol Police officer, dead. At the time, Twitter said that Trump's tweets posed "the risk of further incitement of violence."

Facebook, Snapchat and Reddit also suspended Trump's online presence indefinitely following the attack.

Now Gates says that social media companies should let President Trump back on their platforms, despite his "corrosive" election fraud claims. 


Gates, asked during an interview with CNBC on Thursday, February 18, whether he would let Trump back on social media if he were a member of Facebook's oversight board, he replied;. 

"I think at some point he probably will be allowed back on and probably should be allowed back on," the billionaire philanthropist said.

Gates suggested that if social media companies allow Trump to return, they could put a warning label on any false statements he makes.

"It’s weird when you’re, you know, saying that the election was stolen without any facts there. And how corrosive that is," Gates said. 

"But I’ll bet they’ll find a way to let him back on."

House Democrats, joined by 10 Republicans, impeached Trump on Jan. 13. The Senate voted 57-43 in favor of the impeachment count, ten short of the 67 needed to convict.


"You know in a way ... people’s interest in what he says may go down quite a bit," Gates added. "That’ll be interesting to watch." 

Man runs off with girlfriend's mother after birth of his son


Man runs off with girlfriend

A new father has abandoned his newborn child and girlfriend, and ran off with his girlfriend's 44-year-old mother instead.


24-year-old Jess Aldridge told The Sun that she was shocked to find out that her boyfriend and baby daddy was having an affair with her own mother. She revealed that she was betrayed by her partner Ryan Shelton, 29, while she was heavily pregnant and they lived in a support bubble with mum Georgina and her husband Eric.


Within weeks of their moving in, the gran-of-six began flirting with Ryan. And, by the time Jess came home with newborn Reuben, they had run off together and moved into a new home 30 miles away.


Jess said; 


“We were stuck together for months in the house during lockdown. It was so hard, especially as Ryan and mum were always being so flirty. I felt so uncomfortable, it was a horrible experience.”

It was further learnt that Ryan Shelton sent a text to Jess hours after she had given birth to their son, telling her he was ending their relationship.


She added; 


“You expect a new grandmother to fall in love with the baby — not the father. 

“She is meant to be a granny to my two children and helping me look after them but instead she’s off shagging my boyfriend.”

When Jess confronted her mum, she shrugged and said; 


“We can’t help who we fall in love with.”


Jess had been with car parts salesman Ryan for three years after meeting online. She gave up working as a housekeeper at a Premier Inn in ­Chipping Norton, Oxon, before ­having their first child Georgiana in ­September 2019.

Recounting how Ryan broke up with her after the birth of their son, she said; 


“Ryan had seen baby Reuben for only a few minutes after he was born and then 10 minutes the day afterwards as he was moving all his stuff.

“They were in such a rush. He had even had my mum waiting for him with the car packed in the car park.”

The new lovers have gone public with their relationship on Facebook, leaving friends and family stunned with the act.  Jess who has now returned to the two-bed rented home she used to share with Ryan in Willersey, said; 


“They’ve just been so selfish. I’m horrified.

“How am I supposed to explain to everyone that the kids’ dad and their gran are in a relationship?

“Some of our friends saw his new relationship status on Facebook and were stunned.

“I’ve had lots of messages asking what happened and if I’m OK.

“Last Valentine’s Day Ryan was really romantic and bought me a litre bottle of Gordon’s pink gin, a box of Cadbury’s Milk Tray and a card.

“But this year he’s left me and our children and gone off with my mum. I’ve been put off men for a long time. I’m not looking for a boyfriend any time soon.”

Banks are turning female marketers to sexual slaves – Senator Ayo Akinyelure says as he sponsors Bill to prohibit employment of graduates as casual workers


Banks are turning female marketers to sexual slaves ? Senator Ayo Akinyelure says as he sponsors Bill to prohibit employment of graduates as casual workers

Senator Ayo Akinyelure sponsored a bill at the Senate that seeks to stop employers in the private and public sectors from engaging employable Nigerian graduates as casual workers.


The Prohibition of Casualisation Bill 2020 scaled second reading on Thursday, Feb 18, and was referred to the Committee on Employment, Labour and Productivity to report back within four weeks.


Akinyelure said casualisation of Nigerian graduates in the Nigerian labour market, all because employers want to cut costs, has become worrisome.


He said: "Statistics from the Nigeria Labour Congress shows that many workers in the telecommunications, oil and gas sectors are engaged as casual labourers by employers of labours.


"Other sectors with thousands of casual labourers include mining, steel, banking and insurance."


Akinyelure especially focused on the banking sector. He said banks have turned female marketers into harlots and sexual slaves due to the unrealistic deposit targets they give them.


He said: "In the banking and insurance industry, for instance, many young graduates particularly females are employed as marketers and given unrealistic customer deposit targets running into millions."


"They are hired and fired at will when such unrealistic targets are not met.


"The female among them who are desperate in keeping their jobs turn to harlotry and sex slavery.


"They, move from one office to the other looking for invisible customers who have large funds to enable them meet their targets.


"It is high time this evil and devilish act is stopped."


Supporting, Senator Biodun Olujimi said: "Our girls have been turned into what we cannot imagine.


"Most of them have been asked to look for funds, and when they come to us, I always tell them, I do not even have the funds to eat; how can I have funds to keep with you in the bank?


"They will never be promoted if they don’t bring in such funds, and this is a banking industry that is privately owned, yes, but has made so much profit, and from the profit they could at least take the few that they can manage properly, rather than take a lot that they will be giving pittance."


The Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, in his remark charged the Committee on Employment, Labour and Productivity to strike a balance in the Prohibition of Casualisation Bill to ensure that casual workers in the country were not laid off from their jobs.

Protesters storm Edo Government House with corpse of man killed by herdsmen


Protesters storm Edo Government House with corpse of man killed by herdsmen

Residents of Ovia Northeast Local Government Area of Edo State stormed Government House, Benin, with the body of one of the seven persons killed in their area by criminal herdsmen.


The protesters arrived at the government house on Thursday evening, Feb 18, where they gave Governor Godwin Obaseki a three-day ultimatum to ensure adequate security of lives and property.


They said they resorted to taking the body to the State's Government House because when they reported to the police in their area, they were simply told to deposit the body in the morgue.


The protesters said they had experienced frequent killing of innocent residents by herdsmen in the last few weeks.


Seven persons were killed by criminal herdsmen in the farming communities of Ugboke, Oshodi, Okokodo, Ariyan and Yoruba camp in the LGA.


The leader of the protesters, Michael Idahosa, said residents of the affected communities could no longer bear the incessant attacks by the criminal herdsmen.


He said: "We are here to protest the killings by herdsmen in our communities. Governor Godwin Obaseki came to Ovia Northeast LGA in 2017 when herdsmen killed one of our persons and he promised to tackle the problem of herdsmen in our area, but Edo State government did not address the issue."


Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, who received the protesters, reassured them that the state government would intensify efforts at providing adequate security to check the criminal activities of killer herdsmen in the state.


Shaibu said: "As a state, we have made up our mind not to lament, but to look for solutions on how to protect our country and our state.


"There was also an attack in the early hours of today in Niger State. It is a national problem. As we speak now, Governor Obaseki and other governors are in Abuja to discuss this insecurity issue in our country.


"You will remember that we are bringing in local vigilance members to collaborate with law enforcement agencies. We are strengthening our system and we will still need your support.


"We do not want to take laws into our own hands, but at the same time, we cannot fold our arms and watch the people kill us. Take it easy; some bodies are yet to be found, I have had a discussion with the security agencies. Their personnel will move into the area.


"I can assure you that they will recover bodies of all the victims and we will intensify the security in the area.


"We will categorise the area as one of the flashpoints in Edo State. So that you can sleep with your eyes closed."
