Woman allegedly sees Jesus in x-rays of her teeth during dental check-up[Photo]

An Arizona woman got an early Easter surprise when she saw what she believes to be the image of Jesus Christ in her dental x-rays during a check-up last month, DailyMail reports. 
Kym Ackerman saw the son of God in an x-ray of one her left-side molars when she went for a dental check-up on March 25.
Ackerman, 32, spotted the image and pointed it out to both the dentist and hygienist. 
Although the hygienist agreed about the sanctified shape, the dentist was substantially less excited and 'started looking at my teeth',she said. 

The dentist didn't find any cavities during the check-up and Ackerman has vowed to keep her mouth, and especially that holy molar, healthy. 
She's also planning on framing the x-ray. 

Popular Yoruba actress says all women are prostitutes (Must Read)

Busty and controversial Yoruba actress Bose Arowosegbe has said all women are prostitutes. In a chat with Vanguard she revealed why she named her soon to be released movie ‘Tani Asewo’ literally meaning ‘Who’s a Prostitute’

“It’s because people think that actresses are prostitutes. To say the truth, I believe that all women are prostitutes. People who think it’s only actresses should go to other fields and see what they do there.
To me, I still insist that every woman is a prostitute. People should go and watch my film, and they’ll know how. They should go to other fields, and they’ll see for themselves that those people are even worse than actors. God gave me the inspiration and I did it. It was God’s saying. Besides, this is the fifth film I’m producing by myself. Besides, I noticed that everybody, both in the industry and outside, loved the title and the concept. The movie aims to dispel the notion people have that all actresses are prostitutes. Between a banker, actress and police, who is the prostitute?

Full text of President Jonathan’s Easter message to Nigerians

President Goodluck Jonathan has felicitated with Nigerian Christians as they celebrate this year’s Easter, urging them to be prepared and willing to make sacrifices for greater unity, peace, political stability and progress in our beloved country.

Below is the full text of the message:
Fellow citizens,
I greet you all, especially our Christian brothers and sisters, as we celebrate Easter in commemoration of the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
For Christians all over the world, the major lessons of Easter, which we celebrate this year in the midst of general elections in our nation, are to be found in the Messiah’s Divine love and glorious self-sacrifice for the redemption of mankind.
This year’s celebration of Easter is taking place at a period of very critical national choices and decisions, during which we must all be prepared and willing to make sacrifices for greater unity, peace, political stability and progress in our beloved country.
We must therefore seize the opportunity of the Easter holiday to reflect deeply on what more we need to do as a people, to ensure that the political process in which we are currently engaged is successfully concluded and that our beloved country, Nigeria continues to move towards a better future for all of its citizens.
Happily, we have already successfully scaled the hurdle of the Presidential and National Assembly Elections. I am quite hopeful that the Gubernatorial and State Assembly elections will also be conducted peacefully.
To the glory and pride of our fatherland, our collective actions since March 28 have assured the world that the democratic spirit is alive and well in our nation.
By the grace of God, our beloved nation, Nigeria is moving forward despite all challenges.
Let us all pray this Easter, that God Almighty who has brought us this far, will continue to bless our nation as we march onward towards the fulfillment of our collective vision of a truly united, strong and prosperous nation.
I wish you all very happy Easter celebrations.
Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR

    The defence headquarters spokesperson, Chris Olukolade had in a statement said the duo were moving around “restricted areas” in Yobe and Borno states without protection, accreditation or clearance.

    Rihanna Finally Addresses Those Leonardo DiCaprio Dating Rumors

    Rihanna is now reportedly shutting down those Leo rumors. According to the Daily Mail RiRi said in a recent interview that she doesn't have time to date right now, so obviously  she's not seeing Mr. Titanic.

    Apparently in response to the interviewer's question, "how does Rihanna DiCaprio sound to you?" ( that a real question?), the singer said, "It sounds to me like you should stay away from the blogs because they will screw you every time...I'm so busy right now that I just don't have a lot of time to offer to a man so it wouldn't even be fair to be thinking of pulling somebody else into this life."

    The 72-year-old also went on to explain that if she did settle down with someone, they'd have to be 'man enough' to handle her complex schedule.
    "But if I did, he would have to be man enough to live with my schedule and not get scared," 
    Most recently, RiRi and the 40-year-old actor were spotted getting cozy with one another at Rihanna's birthday party on Feb. 20. The following night they were spotted once again at West Hollywood's 1Oak night club.

    President Jonathan and family have started moving their personal effects out of Aso Rock

    President Goodluck Jonathan and his relatives are gradually moving their personal belongings out of Presidential Villa, reports say.

    The Punch correspondent observed several buses loaded with bags as they were leaving the villa on April 4, Friday.
    A source disclosed that the early removal could be connected with the need to carry out renovation at the residence before the inauguration on May 29.
    Therefore Jonathan might have to operate from outside the residence from now on.
    It was also learned that the presidency has started investigating how the recording of the telephone call between him and Buhari, in which he congratulated the president-elect, had leaked online.

    The presidency was said to have been dissatisfied with the release of the audio. It is yet to be ascertained whether the conversation was leaked by Jonathan’s or Buhari’s camp.
    The source explained:
    “Definitely, unauthorised release of a raw recording of the President’s telephone conversation, if from our (presidency’s) end is a security breach that cannot go without being investigated.”
    Meanwhile it was reported yesterday that Goodluck Jonathan and Muhammadu Buhari met yesterday behind closed doors at Aso Rock, apparently to discuss the transition ceremony.

    Khloe Kardashian slams Jamie Foxx for transgender jokes about Bruce Jenner

    Khloe Kardashian is standing up for her step-dad!
    On April 2, Koko defended Bruce Jenner against a very insensitive joke Jamie Foxx made about the Olympian at Sunday's iHeartRadio Music Awards.
    The reality star felt the "joke", which mocked Jenner's reported plan to transition into a woman, was a "low bow" considering Foxx has been a close family friend for years.
    Khlo explained:
    "I just think it's a low blow. I think it's very mean, but you know, I wish him all the best. It is what it is. I just think — and I know Jamie, so I think that's also why that's a really low blow, but hey. Guess that's what he felt the need to do for a little press."
    The Keeping Up with the Kardashianstar's sentiment echoes that of her step-brother, Burt Jenner. Burt was NOT happy with Jamie's jab either.
    Wonder if the actor will apologize for the comment, considering it offended Bruce's family AND a lot of people in general.

    Charly Boy Showers Praises On GEJ, Jega In New Article

    Charly boy, now known for his controversial post, has something more reasonable to say this time.
    Read below;
    I must first congratulate Mr. President, Goodluck Joanatan for his maturity, magnanimity and statesmanship by being the first to congratulate General Muhammadu Buhari on his win at the polls, e no easy sha. Accepting defeat. This is a sign of a shift in the right direction. Nigerians should be proud of the freest and the fairest election ever! Elections in Africa, over time, have come to be a time of despair for contesting candidates, and for the citizenry whose energies at seeking decent leadership for their  countries have always been a worthless effort. 
    It is also a time for the opposition to endure all that comes with an uneven political playing field such as harassment of opposition leaders and their members as well as the abuse of state machinery to further intimidate opposition supporters and retain government. For the electorate, it is again, a time when they have to be fed on a diet of lies, misconceptions and falsehood, those similar to folktales. In short, tales by moonlight.
    Snce the birth of our democracy, it has never been said that incumbent administration lost presidential spot; even though we have seen a few States like Oyo where incumbents have never returned to that seat.
    In the same vein, elections have always been marred with clear signs of malpractices until the 2011 polls that saw the installment of Jega as the Electoral Boss. For the first time, we had an election that was adjudged by all as free and fair, as was evident that the people’s choice emerged. This year again, history has been repeated and made even better. These elections have been ruled by not a few to be free and fair; which might, for the first time in history, change the history of oppositions and power of incumbency.
    I should probably say that this man Jega is a man of many firsts, besides his obvious qualities of courage and tenacity.
    I have never been into Nigerian politics but when it comes to identifying and celebrating deviants (in a good way), I really do for obvious reasons: I am one myself. This time around we need to give it to this man Jega. He deserves our standing or sitting ovation. 
    I wish that our youth can learn a thing or two from his administration, his willingness and ability to take in pressure, not break, stay focused and deliver on set task not minding whose ass is fucked.
    I want to now see a Nigeria where our youth will rise up and take the challenge to do things right even in the face of great opposition and going outside the norm. A nation where the youth are driven by the desire to do what is right and not what is normal, bearing in mind that the annals of history have no space to feature men who repeat history, rather, men who deemed it worthwhile to go out of their way, break protocols, create new realms and standards.
    Jega is a lesson in calmness, a brilliant Professor and am very proud of him. Today, the International Community is full of accolades for Nigeria because of this achievement. Everybody, including the super powers, has one thing or the other to learn from this to better their own. Now, that’s unbelievable as commendable!Say what you may about Jega, failed card readers, lateness of INEC officials to polling units, late accreditation, late night voting, announcing of election results in series as in soap operas, whatever; this man is a moving train. He knows what he’s doing and Nigerians better know that.
    In my opinion, and I think I speak for many, the success of the 2015 presidential  elections is a vote for Jega.
    Once again, I salute your courage Attahiru Jega, history, I am sure, has a place for men like you. Once again our young democracy seems maturing as elections can be said to reflect the will of the people. I can’t judge if that ‘will’ however, is the best alternative to our young democracy but we sure have joined the rest of some other African countries like South Africa, Benin Republic, Cote d’Ivoire, Senegal and Ghana, who have taken the courage to move away from the ruling party syndrome.
    So fellow Nigerians, with a standing ovation wherever you’re reading this, raise your glasses, let’s doff our hats as I propose a toast to the focused, undeterred, visionary,  tenacious, resilient and outstandingly brilliant Professor, Atahiru Jega!!

    Nobody Should Celebrate Buhari- Etcetera Writes In New Article

    Singer turned critic, Etcetera has something to say about the new government. 
    Read below...

    Why are we dancing? Why do we keep rolling out the drums each time we have a new government, only for us to start crying few months down the line? Is it that we are too quick to forget or we just love to dance? Do you celebrate a child who’s about to write his exams or the one who has written and passed? What is this jubilation for? Because I really don’t understand. Is it that the election of Buhari in itself has suddenly alleviated our sufferings? I am really confused here, hearing how six bikers lost their lives in Zaria celebrating Buhari’s victory.

    One would think that a people who have been shortchanged for so long by past presidents will know better to be calm and take every word of the new president with a pinch of salt until he proves to be different. This process is becoming an unending circle, again and again we’ve danced and again and again, we’ve cursed and cried at the end.

    It is still shocking to me that a lot of Nigerians fell for the story that the president was born without shoes. Was anyone born with shoes on? Buhari’s triumphant entry into the presidency last Sunday which coincidentally was a palm Sunday doesn’t yet prove he is the redeemer. Just like the second coming of our supposed political messiah Obasanjo didn’t prove any significant improvement in our lives.

    We all thought he was the one anointed by the gods to take us by the hands and lead us right straight into the promised land, where we shall have no more gnashing of teeth. But when he left office, the roads were still as bad as they were before he took office. The hospitals were still without facilities and most importantly, he failed to defeat the demon in the power sector even with billions of dollars thrown at it. The demons in the same power sector have claimed Jonathan just like they did Yar’Adua, Abdulsalami Abubakar, Sanni Abacha, Shonekan, IBB and Shagari. Even Buhari himself had already been defeated by this demon before. So what says it is not going to be the same this time around. Remember obasanjo was defeated twice by this same demon.

    Why won’t our leaders take us for granted when they’ve noticed that we are always ready to jump to our feet and “judile” with the announcement of every new regime? When Buhari overthrew the democratically elected government of Shehu Shagari in 1983, many of you reading this took to the streets to boogie down. When Babangida sent Buhari packing a couple of months later, a lot more of you got drunk and vomited all over the place. Even Abacha’s sudden death brought smiles on the faces of most bar owners across the country as they ran out of booze. Is something wrong with us as a people? We are forgetting a very important fact that this election proves that we are and will still remain a divided people. We are divided by our ideologies with no realistic integration in sight. The election has also reinforced the thinking that we are divided by regional, tribal and religious interests and not national. These are some of the significant issues that will define our tomorrow.

    Finally, some of you who are reading this may be saying, oh Etcetera, can’t you be optimistic for once? My brother, I can’t. Optimism and its younger brother, hope have proven to be very dangerous especially in Nigeria. They have sent millions of Nigerians to their early graves. What is the point of being optimistic in a system that has always left me in tears and heartache? Or is it till I get arrested by Mr. Cardiac? Tufiakwa!
