EXCLUSIVE NEWS| REVEALED: Why Amaechi Was Blocked From Entering Government House

Image
The Rivers state police command has explained the reason for barring the governor of the state, Rotimi Amaechi from entering his residence through the Forces Avenue main entrance to the Government House.

The governor who was on Thursday returning from an inspection tour of projects in the state was barred by gun-totting policemen who barricaded the entrance.

According to the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Angela Angela Agabe (DSP), the entrance was blocked as a measure to prevent a breakdown of law and order after a splinter group of the Peoples’ Democratic Party in the state opened a secretariat on the same road. All roads leading to Forces Avenue were immediately closed.

The governor’s Chief of Staff, Tony Okocha had earlier led members of a faction of the PDP to open the secretariat at 38, Forces Avenue, Old GRA, Port Harcourt. The ‘secretariat’ was, however, later closed down by the police who were said to be acting on superior orders.

Celebrities Behaving Badly: Notjustok.com’s Controversial ’10 Most Gifted Rappers’ List Incites GODWON v Sinzu Twitter Fight

Image
must confess that when I saw the Notjustok.com ’10 Most Gifted Rappers’ in Nigeria feature, I just rolled my eyes and thought, “Demola what happened?” Unfortunately, (Co-owner) OvieO is taking the heat for this list. I don’t know how you can have “most gifted” rapper list and not have a name like Jesse Jagz as #1, Vector following closely at #2, Sinzu at #3, Phyno at #4 and then the rest. “Most Gifted,” to me, has nothing to do with being a commercially successful rapper or a rapper with a hugely wide fan base. It is about an innate talent that flows in the bloodstream. The type where it is truly effortless. Jesse Jagz tops that list all day, everyday, and then the ones listed in my book above. In any event, Notjustok releases this list and apparently I am not the only one who felt there was a problem with the list. The public and artists alike have challenged Nojustok for the list, while a few have chosen to even fight each other on Twitter highways. See the heated exchange with ra…

Image
The Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwase II has defiled the order of Kingship; announcing the abolition of some of the ancient Itshekiri cultural practices.

This has led to a serious protest by angry indigenes, in Warri, Delta State who took to the street on Sunday to protest but for the quick intervention of Governor Uduaghan, it would have resulted into total mayhem.

The Olu of Warri, who suddenly turned born again by accepting the teachings of Christ, with a Four Square worship center he built in his Palace, made the announcement on the 4th of September 2013.

In a document titled "The new order of Iwere Kingdom" the Oba stated that, the "Ogiame" title which had been in existence for over 500 years would no longer exist because it is purportedly associated to a river goddess. He now only wants to serve one God.

In the document, The Olu of Warri said, "I also repent from the name and title of “Ogiame” that my ancestors and I have borne, as it connotes our allegiance to U…

EXCLUSIVE NEWS| REVEALED: Jonathan, Tukur Behind PDP Crisis

Image
Factional National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola, has identified President Goodluck Jonathan and the National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, as those behind the crisis rocking the party.

He said that President Jonathan had not taken any step towards ensuring peace in the party since the crisis that led to the party’s polarisation began.

Oyinlola, who spoke while addressing members of the PDP loyal to him in all the 30 local government areas of the state during a rally held in Okuku, his hometown, said his travails in the PDP started in 2011 as a result of his loyalty to former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

He alleged that President Jonathan was aware of his face-off with Tukur and did nothing to resolve it.  “Even when the President called both of us to a parley in Abuja, nothing meaningful was achieved. I also tried to advise Tukur as an elder that he is to me, but he turned deaf ears to my advice,” Oyinlola said.


He recalled tha…
