Is Governor Fashola Becoming A Bad Governor? - By Uzoma Ahamefule

Image
By Uzoma Ahamefule How can Nigerians be governed with this high level of cruelty by means of obnoxious laws here and there? Why is it that laws are executed with the speed like that of an angry hunting lion when it has to do with the poor in this country but when it concerns the bigger criminals in the name of political leaders and elites every government begins to form committees that never find them guilty? Why this impunity of recklessness? Why is it that Nigerian leaders at various levels are very insensitive to the cry of the people, but yet expect to win the war against crime and social vices? Objectively speaking, how can Nigeria’s “vision 2020” policy of being one of the world’s leading political and economical powers in 2020 be realized when average Nigerian citizens still live under $1 per day and their leaders do not see them as partners but rather treat issues concerning them like masters and slaves? What have we Nigerians done wrong to our leaders? Who is advising Govern…

74-Year-Old Landlord Shoots And Kills Two Tenants During Argument Over Parking Space

A young couple was shot dead by their landlord after arguing with him over parking their cars in his driveway, police say. Derrick Thompson, 19, and Alivia Welch, 18, were killed in their apartment on Saturday just three minutes after police left the property in Biddeford, Maine. Officers believed they had quelled an argument between the tenants and James Pak, who owned the duxplex, authorities say. Pak, a 74-year-old Korean War orphan and local business owner, lived in one half of the duplex and rented out the other half. Neighbors described him as a 'horrible landlord,' with an short temper who spied on the people who rented from him. Pak also shot and wounded Mr Thompson's mother, Susan Johnson, 44, who was also living in the apartment with her six-year-old son, police say. The young boy was found hiding in a back bedroom. He and Ms Johnson, as well as Pak's wife, were rescued by officers shortly after the shooting, the Portland Press Herald reports.

Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines says her doctors discovered the clot during a follow-up exam Sunday. Reines says Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants.


KEVIN LAMARQUE/APSecretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has been admitted to a New York hospital after the discovery of a blood clot stemming from the concussion she sustained earlier this month. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was undergoing emergency treatment for a blood clot Sunday night at a Manhattan hospital. Doctors said the clot stems from a concussion she suffered this month when she fainted while battling a stomach bug and hit her head. Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines said doctors discovered the clot while conducting a followup exam Sunday. She was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital Columbia, where she was being treated with anti-coagulants. Clinton has a history of blood clots. In 1998, a clot was found behind her right knee and she was put on a blood thinner, but stopped when her health improved. “…

61-Year-Old Grandmother Rises From The Dead For The Third Time

Image
A grandmother has been brought back from the dead twice - and has even survived spending three days in a morgue. The 61-year-old Russian woman has been declared dead twice by doctors, but each time has come back to life - and once was minutes away from being cut open for her autopsy. Hardy Lyudmila Steblitskaya spent 3 days laying in a freezing cold morgue, while her family mourned the retired cook.

Lyudmila Steblitskaya, her daughter Anastasia, and granddaughter Nelli, all had a horrific shock. The mother's eery habit of returning to life has not only left her family torn between grief and hope that she may come back to life, but perplexed doctors too, The Siberian Times reported.

She has scared both doctors, friends and family once in November last year and in October this year. The initial confusion began last year, when Lyudmila was taken to Tomsk Regional Clinical Hospital and spent days in hospital because she felt unwell.

When her 29-year-old daughter Anastasia, who has a daugh…
