"Im very single and happy" - Ini Edo clears the air on her relationship status

Months after separating from her estranged husband Philip, the actress was rumoured to be having an affair with Mike Godson, her junior colleague in the movie industry.

However, she has again come out to debunk claims that she is in another relationship, stating clearly that she is happily single.
“No, I’m not back into the arms of any man. I’m in love with myself. I’m a single girl, very, very happily single.
I have always had my groove back on. But you know now, I’m a happy person all the time. Life is too short to dwell on regrets and pains. As for all the talks about moving into a new house, driving posh automobiles, I don’t dwell on those things. I just want to keep doing better films, doing good in my profession. I just want to keep growing,” she hinted.

Both Ini Edo and Philip have obviously moved on with their lives.

It was also discovered that her ex-husband has an 8-year old son, named after him. Phillip Eden Ehiagwina Jnr.

Jega set to quit as INEC chairman

Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Attahiru Jega, has declared that he is not interested in another term when his current tenure expires in June.
Jega was appointed by President Goodluck Jonathan in 2010 to replace Prof Maurice Iwu.
Speaking in an interview with the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC Hausa) Thursday night, Jega said having played his role in the political space for five years, it was time another person to contribute his or her own quota.
“I am grateful to God. I was asked to come and contribute my own quota to the national development and I have done my bit to the best of my ability.
“Whatever assignment one will do for five years – just like this difficult one, to me if one is able to successfully accomplish the task, someone else should be given the opportunity, because for me I am not interested and if I am requested to serve again, I will not do it, by God’s grace,” Jega said. 

Kowa presidential candidate, Mrs Remi Sonaiya has a message for Nigerians

Below is a post-election message by the presidential candidate of KOWA party, Professor Oluremi Sonaiya.
“My fellow Nigerians,
Roughly four months ago, I signified my intention to represent KOWA Party at the presidential elections. I was involved in a primary with three other aspirants and emerged our Party’s nominee. The period between then and now has been challenging, revealing and deeply rewarding. Understandably, given our political culture, we were met from some quarters with cynicism from the very beginning, ours being a relatively new party with little funding and no known heavyweights. At the same time, many Nigerians saw in our audacious candidacy the possibility of real change and a clear departure from what we have known so far as a nation.
I am proud of what we have achieved over this very short period. KOWA is now known not only across Nigeria but also by many people in the international space. We performed far above what we were expected to in every state of the Federation, and enquiries have been pouring in from many interested and inspired individuals across the nation, asking how they can join our party and help spread its ideals. (Kindly
This experience has made me, now more than ever, convinced of the need for a value re-orientation in our country. As a society we appear to celebrate people who represent the ills we complain about, or are prepared to look the other way when they offer us temporary palliatives. This has to change, and I hope to work with my Party to continue to spread this message without which our hope of building a just and prosperous nation will forever remain a mirage.
I am also convinced that there is a quiet majority out there who see the truth in our message that only a leader with strong values and an independent mind can give us the change we need. As such, I intend to spend the coming years working with other members to grow KOWA Party and establish it as a solid and attractive platform of excellence for politicians of character and integrity.
Finally, many may not be aware, but the core support for my campaign was provided by volunteers. Ordinary people like me, who shared our message broadly in spite of disbelief and even derision from some supporters of some larger parties. To these ordinary people who saw themselves in my candidacy and made sacrifices to actualize our dream, I am greatly indebted and hereby express my profound gratitude.
This is not the end. This is only the beginning. The power to change Nigeria for good lies in all of us. While we congratulate the incoming government on their victory at the polls, we also remind them that something has changed significantly about the Nigerian people at this election, and that governments will from now on be held to account. God bless you all, and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
Professor Oluremi SONAIYA

Read Obasanjo's letter to President-elect Muhammadu Buhari

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has written a letter to President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari on his victory in the just concluded general election.
Read below....
I hasten to congratulate you on your success and victory in the Presidential Elections of March 28, 2015. Your success and victory after three previous unsuccessful attempts must be great object lessons for you and for all politicians, particularly in Nigeria. For me, the totality of 2015 elections hold many lessons for our democracy and democratisation process, which are both maturing. On this occasion, the system has been unnecessarily overheated before and particularly during the campaigns when emphasis was more on trivialities and hate, divisive, undignifying and disrespectful statements and comments rather than on pressing issues requiring attention.
I know that in victory, you will be magnanimous to start binding the wounds and bitterness occasioned by the campaign and the evil disciples. 

With so much harm already done to many national institutions including the military, which proudly nurtured you and me, you will have a lot to do on institution reform, education, healthcare, economy, security, infrastructure, power, youth employment, agribusiness, oil and gas, external affairs, cohesiveness of our nation and ridding our land of corruption.

Your varied and wide experience will undoubtedly stand you in good stead. I am also sure that there are men and women of goodwill, character and virtue across the board that you can mobilise to join hands with you in the reform, repairs and redirection that will be imperative to put Nigeria back on the fast lane of good governance, unity, cohesiveness, development and progress.

Once again, I felicitate with you and wish you well.
