Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi has accused Governor-elect, Nyesom Wike of murder.
Amaechi stated further that God would not allow a killer to become the governor of Rivers.
The outgoing governor made the comments on Tuesday, May 26, 2015 during a public lecture to mark his 50 birthday in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
“I refused to probe Dr. Odili’s tenure because when they ask of my report, it won’t be who you probed but what you did. If Wike accuses me of corruption, he was my Chief of Staff for my many years.”
“A thief cannot call me corrupt. He was my Chief of Staff, if I have no records I have records on him. All the noise Wike is making is to have negotiation with us so they can stay in office illegally but we must go to court.”
“I am a Christian, I have never killed anybody and I will never kill anybody. Instead of killing anybody I will give up my ambition. In a bid for Wike to be governor, he hired Atake, they killed a young man and cut his private part. They slit a young mans throat and hung him on a tree.”
“God will no longer allow people who kill people be governor of Rivers state. He will allow only those who worship him. I am not perfect. If I said I was, I’d be lying. My priest continues to pray for me, he has told me God says we will defeat Nyesom Wike. God will not allow a killer to become Governor but we must learn to be patient. You must share part of my spirit of resistance.”
Wike had earlier said that he would probe Amaechi’s administration after assuming office.
The governor-elect will be sworn in on Friday, May 29, 2015.

National Association of Nigerian students, NANS has warned South Africa President,Jacob Zuma not to come to Nigeria for the Inauguration of President-Elect, Muhammadu Buhari following what they described as his poor handling of the xenophobic attacks on some Africans including Nigerians in his country in April.
According to the statement released by the body, the failure of the South African President to apologize to Nigerians after the attacks is distasteful.
The students expressed their anger in a statement signed by its President, Tijani Usman.
The statement in part reads:....
“We wish to advise the South African President (Jacob Zuma) to rather stay at home and address burning issues, rather than embarking on a visit that is the least desirable.
The South African President’s failure to apologise to Nigeria for the losses the country and our citizens incurred during the xenophobic attacks on foreigners leaves a bitter taste in the mouth.
There is therefore, no point felicitating with a people who clearly do not matter much to you. President Zuma’s visit will only amount to pretence.”
Well, na true talk them talk o but even if he comes, wetin them go fit do?

Former vice president under Olusegun Obasanjo's regime,Atiku Abubakar has addressed his problems with the ex-president.Excerpts from his interview with Punch
Your former boss, ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo, said so many not-too-complimentary things about you in his latest book, ‘My Watch’. Have you both met since then?
You know, really, I don’t give a damn (about) what Obasanjo says about me.
On if former President Obasanjo scuttled the best chance he ever had to lead this country as president?
I don’t think so. How? When?
On Obasanjo scuttling his political career
As far as I am concerned, Obasanjo may believe that he scuttled my presidential ambition, but I believe it is about God. If God says I will be president, I will be president; if He says I will not be president, I will not be president. Let’s forget about Obasanjo.
On contesting for president again
It is quite too early for such a question. We are in a transition process. We have not even formed the next government. You are asking me whether I will like to run again or not. I think it is just too early. My concern is to make sure that the transition process is smooth and complete and a new government is formed because it is the party that I belong to that is coming in. My dream for Nigeria is always that we can, from time to time, change government so that there can be competition among parties and that competition will bring about, perhaps more development and progress in the country. I think that is my most important concern now rather than thinking of whether I’m going to run again or not.
On meeting President Goodluck Jonathan before the general elections
I have told Nigerians what transpired between the two of us. He wanted me to come back to the PDP and I said I was not coming back.
Atiku still looking for relevance o. Everybody don wise and his tricks go soon begin fail o. Well, make we dey look wetin Atiku get for us.

Wiz Khalifa announced on Twitter yesterday May 21, the title of his next album “Rolling Papers 2: The Weed Album.”
The album comes four years after his Rolling Papers album. “Rolling Papers 2: The Weed Album" will be its sequel.
The first Rolling Papers was released in 2011 on Rostrum Records and Atlantic Records.
Wiz Khalifa was not impressed with the way Rolling Papers turned out.
"The mistake I made on Rolling Papers was thinking it was time to move on from that genre not knowing that it had impacted people so much. The album did great numbers, but creatively wasn’t my best work," he wrote on his Tumblr in 2012.
No release date has been announced for Rolling Papers 2: The Weed Album will be released.

It was gathered that the girl identified as Chisom Anyanwu, who hails from Umuawumi Ubomiri, murdered her 28-year-old lover simply identified as Abio, an undergraduate, in cold blood yesterday following an argument between the two.
Abio, a native of Egbeada in the same Mbaitoli Local Government Area, was said to have visited Chisom's house late on Tuesday, and she became very angry as she had earlier cautioned the boy not
to visit her at home, as she would not like her elder brothers and sisters to see him.
Abio, who was said to be the only son of his parents refused to go back when he was asked to do so, thus provoking an argument which resulted in Chisom stabbing the boy in the chest.
According to an eye witness, too much blood gushed out of Abio's body and he gave up the ghost on his way to the Christian Medical Centre, Nworieubi, in the council area and doctors clinically confirmed him dead.
TheNation reports that their effort to meet the medical director of the centre, Dr, Obinna Ozims, for comment on the incident failed as he was said to be busy attending to patients.
Meanwhile, the news of Abio's death which filtered into the neighbourhood caused revolt among some angry youths, friends and relations which resulted in the burning down the house of the parents of the accused. But the police intervened to stop them from further destruction.
Imo state Police Command Public Relation Officer, PPRO, Andrew Enwerem (DSP), confirmed the incident, saying the suspect has already been arrested. "She is in police custody, while investigation is on," he said.

According to, the suspect who resides at Adeniji Street, Meiran, a suburb of Lagos State, with her husband and step-children, told her husband, Mr. Wasiu Bello, that she was pregnant and that she has been instructed to go and deliver of the baby in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital in southern Nigeria.
Mrs. Bello was alleged to have spent two weeks in Port Harcourt before returning to Lagos with twin babies, a boy and a girl, claiming that she gave birth to them.
Curious neighbours who never saw her with pregnancy prior to her trip to Port Harcourt alerted the police at Alakuko, alleging that they suspected that the woman may have stolen the babies.
Sources said the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Alakuko Police Station, Mr. Musa Alimi, a Chief Superintendent of Police, CSP, instructed some female detectives to investigate the allegation.
P.M.News learnt that when Mrs. Bello was confronted by the female detectives, she insisted that she gave birth to the twins and also suggested the police should take her to a medical doctor to confirm her claim.
It was at the hospital that doctors confirmed that she is not the biological mother of the babies.
At that point she had to confess that she bought the babies in Port Harcourt for N1.9 million.
When her husband, Mr. Wasiu Bello, was arrested and interrogated, he told the police that his wife told him that she was pregnant and wanted to go and deliver of the baby in Port Harcourt.
He said he obliged only for her to come back with the babies claiming she gave birth to twins.
He dissociated himself from the crime.
Hmmmm, story for the gods. So him no wan follow him wife collect the trouble.

In one of her vlogs, the model and YouTube star explained how she has two vaginas, two cervixes and two uteri — a condition called uterus didelphys.
After years of heavy period bleeding and back pain, Bankson found out she'd been suffering from two menstruations a month. The reason Bankson never knew is because she has only one vulva. Everything looked normal to her, although her pair of reproductive systems was quite unusual.
In an interview, Bankson told Barcroft TV how the medical revelation impacts her menstruation and sex life.
For some people, having two vaginas can make it very painful — for others I assume there are more nerve endings so it could be more pleasurable.
I'm definitely nervous about having to explain this to future partners… I have no real idea how this is going to affect my life so it's something we would have to talk about.
To top off Bankson's discoveries, an MRI showed the young woman has only one kidney.
Whew! And you think say na you get problem pass.
