Heartbreaking Photo: 67year Old Legendary Nollywood Actor Sadiq Daba Is Seriously Sick Suffering From Leukemia And Prostate

Activist Joe Okei-Odumakin, paid a visit to ailing veteran broadcaster and actor, Sadiq Daba, who is battling with Leukemia and Prostate. She shared her experience with him.

(For Sadiq Daba)
I am angry this Sunday morning. My friend for over 30 years, Sadiq Daba dances in pain, every moment. He is our national treasure: a consummate performer, a popicon, an idol who brought us tear jerking moments and laughers with his performances as an artist, actor and a patriot. Sadiq sleeps and wakes in pains, tortured by Leukemia and brutalized by Prostate Cancer. He hopes to see each day. But deep inside his heart, Sadiq is frustrated by being neglected by the same Nation and people he empowered: he was there for some widely known politicians and start up movie makers, entertainers and those in all walks of Nigeria.

He used his celebrated superstar status to serve and help other Nigerians. He sacrificed his fame for those not privileged his celebrity in Nigeria. Sadiq became the gate pass to many success stories across the Nation called Nigeria. But these times, as Sadiq is saddled with his pains and fights to beat Cancer, those he held up while they were down seem distanced. The promises faded into blurred visions. Nigeria is a nation that selectively celebrates those within the corridors of its powerhouse. Sadiq, though has the keys to the cities, the locks, these times are changed. And they turned their backs on him: left alone in pain and penury, left to die pleading for just N20Million to save his life. “Jebose, na where I wan get that kain money. You know me say na only movies I dey do”.

Time is against Sadiq, if he is not helped. He needs N20 MILLION. Do we have to wait for his death to celebrate him?. He served Nigeria with his heart. He dedicated his life and career to this nation. Meanwhile, down South, two foolish government officials engaged in noon day egotistical nonsense with their staff, causing mayhem and damages that are worth over N20million: mid East, a crazy Idol worshipper Governor is erecting statues of ageing Presidents, a feast that totaled more than N20Million. They want to tell me they have not heard the stories and cries of Sadiq Daba?. Haba. His home state on the Plateau tuned out the cacophonies of our pleas and his sufferings.

Sadiq Daba has been forgotten by Nigeria. Shame on you, Nigeria. The times he needed a nation to be grateful and appreciative of his contributions to our pop culture, tourism and movie industry, Sadiq is left silently weeping inside a Lagos hospital, waiting to go home and live in painful peace. Few friends dropped by to cheer him up. But the nation’s leaders continue to ignore the ailing treasure. I hate you, Nigeria. Yes. I do.- Azuka Jebose.

Jubilation As Australia Votes ‘Yes’ To Legalize Same-Sex Marriage

Australians have overwhelmingly voted in favour of legalising same-sex marriage in a historic poll. The non-binding postal vote showed 61.6% of people favour allowing same-sex couples to wed, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said.

Jubilant supporters have been celebrating in public spaces, waving rainbow flags and singing and dancing. A bill to change the law was introduced into the Senate late on Wednesday. It will now be debated for amendments.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said his government would aim to pass legislation in parliament by Christmas. “[Australians] have spoken in their millions and they have voted overwhelmingly yes for marriage equality,” Mr Turnbull said after the result was announced.

“They voted yes for fairness, yes for commitment, yes for love.”

The issue only went to a voluntary postal vote after a long and bitter debate about amending Australia’s Marriage Act.

That’s where we’ll leave today’s rolling coverage of the historic same sex marriage survey.

It was a controversial, expensive, and often traumatic exercise which in the end confirmed Australians supported marriage equality in numbers similar to those found by repeated polling.

But it won. 61.6% of people who took part in the non-binding postal survey said Yes. The No campaign got 38.4% – lower than the 40% that former prime, Tony Abbott said would deliver a “moral victory”.

No campaign leader, Lyle Shelton, blamed the media and the “relentlessness” of the Yes campaigners.

Some MPs said they would still vote no in parliament, or would abstain, but 133 of the 150 federal electorates returned a majority support for marriage equality.

Malcolm Turnbull and George Brandis hope and expect marriage equality will be law by Christmas.

Senator James Paterson gave up on his controversial rival bill, revealed just a few days ago, conceding the cross-party bill proposed by Dean Smith had the support required.

The Smith bill has been formally introduced in the Senate and Christopher Knaus is continuing to blog over on our regular Politics Live blog. Tomorrow the Smith bill will be debated and all the key developments will be covered by Politics Live.

Tonight Australia’s LGBTIQ community and its family, friends, and supporters, will celebrate, or perhaps just sigh with relief.

We Are Purging The Political Sphere, President Mugabe And His Wife Are In Our Custody” – Zimbabwe Army Takes Over TV

Zimbabwean tyrant Robert Mugabe was this morning booted out of office – as a military coup ended his 37-year iron grip on power.

The country’s ruling Zanu-PF party confirmed the southern African nation’s 93-year-old president had been “detained” in a “bloodless transition”.

Soldiers had earlier seized the country’s state TV station after tanks rolled into capital Harare.

The military has seized control in Zimbabwe and has said President Robert Mugabe, in power since 1980, is safe.

After seizing state TV, an army spokesman announced it was targeting people close to Mr Mugabe who had caused “social and economic suffering”. Messages attributed to a ruling party Twitter account described the takeover as a “bloodless transition”.

The move came after Mr Mugabe sacked his deputy, Emmerson Mnangagwa, in favour of his wife. A statement read out by a general on air denied it was a coup and said Mr Mugabe was safe, but did not say where.

Heavy gun and artillery fire could be heard in northern parts of the capital Harare early on Wednesday.

Vice-president Emmerson Mnangagwa has been installed a leader, a Twitter statement from the party said.

It said “Zimbabwe was not owned by Mugabe or his wife” – a reference to Grace Mugabe, who the statement accuses of “taking advantage” of the elderly despot.

She was widely accused of running the country for infirm Mugabe and feared to be plotting a power grab when he died.

The army finally stepped in yesterday after Mugabe fired popular number two Mnangagwa, his probable successor, last week.

It raised fears he was plotting to install 52-year-old Grace as leader.

The Zanu-PF statement added: “Last night the first family was detained and are safe, both for the constitution and the sanity of the nation this was necessary.

“Today begins a fresh new era and comrade Mnangagwa will help us achieve a better Zimbabwe.”

Mugabe was long seen as a hero of African independence movements after wresting control from Britain in 1980.

But the tyrant earned notoriety for allowing the persecution of white farmers that led to dozens of murders in the 1990s.

He also presided over a hyperinflation disaster that saw the country’s currency sink in value by 79 BILLION per cent – sending millions of Zimbabweans into poverty and lowering the life expectancy from 61 to 40.

The former British colony left the Commonwealth in 2003 on Mugabe’s orders.

He earned a reputation for falling asleep during high-level diplomatic meetings in his later years – once being snapped snoozing at the United Nation.

The leadership crisis reached a head over night when soldiers stormed the national TV station and told the nation the army was “targeting criminals” and was not planning “a military takeover of government”.

Named as Major General S.B. Moyo, he added that tyrant Mugabe and his family were “safe and sound” but warned “any provocation will be met with an appropriate response”.

The dramatic scenes came as heavy gunfire and shellfire was reported in capital Harare in the early hours of this morning.

The UK Foreign Office responded by telling Brits in the country to remain indoors.

Major Moyo added: “We are only targeting criminals around who him who are committing crimes that are causing social and economic suffering in the country in order to bring them to justice.

“As soon as we have accomplished our mission, we expect that the situation will return to normalcy.”

Libyans Auction Nigerians, Others As Slaves For $200” – CNN Report

Stranded Nigerians and migrants of other nationals in Libya are in a dire situation as smugglers now auction them for sale as slaves in the North African country for as low as $200-$400 (N144,000).

In a video footage report published by CNN, some stranded immigrants were seen in a brief clip being auctioned for sale, with the auctioneer saying they are, “big strong boys for farm work.”

According to the report, Nigerians are sold at the auctions, which usually take place at least twice in a month, for 900, 1,000 Libyan Dinars, depending on the physical strength the migrant possesses.

Illegal female migrants queue in the prison yard as they are loaded onto buses to be transferred to another detention centre, after having been sold by the militia group ruling the Surman detention camp in the west of Libya. Surman, Libya.

In the video, an unidentified Nigerian, who is believed to be in his late 20s, was sold during the transaction. The auctioneer, whose face didn’t appear in the video, but his hand resting on the Nigerian shoulder, was addressing an unseen audience about the ‘deal’ in a deep baritone voice.

Libya has become a major transit hub country for migrants looking to reach Europe from North Africa. Thousands of migrants have died attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea from Africa into Europe.

They’re refugees fleeing conflict or economic migrants in search of better opportunities in Europe. Most migrants have sold everything they own to finance the journey through Libya to the coast and the gateway to the Mediterranean.

But a recent clampdown by the Libyan Coastguard means fewer boats are making it out to sea, leaving the smugglers with a backlog of would-be passengers on their hands. .

So the smugglers become masters, the migrants and refugees become slaves. The auctions usually take place in 9 locations, namely: Gadamis, Garyan, Zuwara, Alzintan, Sabratah, Kabaw, Calsteverde, Alzintan and Alrujban.

Carrying concealed cameras into a property where the human merchandise is about to take place outside the capital, the CNN Correspondent who pretended as if they were looking for a missing person, discovered that there are scores of migrants waiting to be auctioned.
