I can Act Nudé if the Story Goes with it –Actress Tessy Oragwa

Beautiful actress Tessy Oragwa has proved that she is one of the next actress to watch in the industry. Despite her parents’ attempt to thwart her career because of the wrong impression of actresses in the movie industry, she tells The Sun's Christian Agadibe how far she can go in business of "rough" acting.

What challenges did you encounter when you started?
It was really challenging just like every business comes with its own challenges. I could remember a time I got a job for a very good role after going for the auditions from the outset. I was inside the location bus when the EP talked to the PM and the Production Manager came to tell me that the Executive Producer said that I didn’t look like Eucharia Anunobi and that they have someone who looks very much like her, and that was the person he wanted. I accepted, dropped the script, came down and went back home.

How did you feel?
I felt bad, because I really gave my best right from the audition and got the role.

Maybe the other actress has features more than you do as Anunobi?
Excuse me. The person that it was given to, how is she? She does not look an inch of Eucharia Anunobi. Please, don’t even go there because I don’t want to talk about that issue.

Are you sure it’s not because of séx for role?

President Jonathan Sick, Flown To Hospital In Germany

In Nigeria, public office often usually 'lie' about their health status. Contrary to the official claims that President Goodluck Jonathan travelled to Germany on a private visit, Leaders has disclosed that the president actually took ill and had to leave the country for Germany to seek medical care.

Efforts to get a confirmation from the Presidency failed up until the time of going to press, as several calls to his spokesman, Dr Reuben Abati, did not go through and he didn’t respond to an email enquiry either.

Similarly, the senior special assistant to the president on public affairs, Dr Doyin Okupe, did not pick or return several calls to his mobile number last night.
It was gathered that President Jonathan, on arrival in Germany, headed for a private hospital in the Germany for urgent medical attention.

Adamawa Governorship: Presidency Dumps Ribadu

Jolted by the acri­mony trailing his en­trance into the PDP, the Presidency may have withdrawn its support for the former EFCC chairman, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu.

Saturday Sun checks revealed that Presidency was worried by the gang up by certain governorship aspi­rants for the Adamawa gov­ernorship ticket on PDP plat­form against Mallam Ribadu and intelligence reports that former Vice-president, Atiku Abubakar was waiting in the wings to exploit the acrimo­ny in the ruling party to the advantage of the main oppo­sition party, the APC.

A source fin­gered a presidential aide from Adamawa State and arrow­head of the Ribadu governor­ship project as the one who misled the Presidency on the political weight of Nuhu Ribadu.
“The race in the coming days is likely to be very in­teresting but we have all re­solved to be very careful because in politics, you cannot take chances, especially ones that are likely to jeopardise the chances of your party.  When the issue of Ribadu first came up, some indices which we are witnessing now had not come up then...

Toolz Opens Up On How The Guy She Love Broke Her Heart

Love is beautiful, love is wicked; it's a case of different strokes for different folks. Radio personality Toolz in a recent chat with Entertainment Express, opened up on how a guy she liked did not want to her. *Sad!*
"There was this guy I met during my final year at the University. He had just moved from Houston and didn't know a lot of people in London and after a few random conversation about course work, he asked me out. Our first date was amazing and after about a month of seeing each other a few times a week, I was almost certain he was "the one". After dancing around the issue for a week or two, I was finally brave enough to bring up the "where are we" issue. 
"His exact words were, 'I really like you Tolu, but I'm not looking for a relationship right now'.

Ribadu, What Happened To You?

Nuhu Ribadu and The Rest of Us by Dele Momodu
Fellow Nigerians, it has been a week of serious fireworks and heavy bombardment against one of our own on social media. The brouhaha erupted over what should have been a simple migration of Nuhu Ribadu from his erstwhile political Party, APC, to PDP, a Party most of his fans turned attackers consider to represent a complete opposite of the politics that Ribadu professes as well as a total abandonment of his avowed principles.

As much as I tried not to dabble into what I considered a personal decision, I was forced at a stage to state some facts on Twitter. I intend to expand the content of that intervention today.
The fury expressed against Nuhu was certainly borne out of acute frustration by those who looked upon him as a saint in a terribly polluted environment. How they arrived at the deification of this gentleman is worth exploring. For those who may not know him well, let me sketch, as much as I can, a vivid picture of a man we all know as Mallam Nuhu Ribadu.

Nobody Can Stop Jonathan In 2015 ––EK Clark

Tough-talking Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Clark, has said that President Goodluck Jonathan will contest the 2015 presidential election and that nobody can stop him.

He said there is no way another four years of Jonathan Presidency would bring an end to the country, claiming that all those who had ruled the country before spent two terms.

Clark stated this in Abuja on Friday while playing host to a delegation of Northern Women in Politics under the aegis of - Northern Women Mass Movement for President Jonathan 2015 Ambition.
He said, “Jonathan will contest in 2015 because of two things; one, he is qualified to do so under the law and secondly, he has performed well to the extent that those who voted him in 2011 are willing to do so again. 
“Nobody has a right to stop him from contesting. Every President who has ruled this nation spent two terms. We voted for Alhaji Shehu Shagari as President in 1979 and 1983 respectively. 
“Everybody in this country is created equal, no matter the tribe, gender or background as long as such person is a Nigerian and educated.”

I Prayed To God and He Saved Me From Ebola ––Dr. Brantly

One of the United States aid workers who recovered from an Ebola infection, Dr. Kent Brantly, has said he is “thrilled to be alive” as he and another patient were discharged from the hospital.

In his first public speech after the leaving the hospital on Thursday for treatment of the deadly virus, Brantly, 33, thanked supporters for their prayers.
“Today is a miraculous day,” said Brantly, while addressing reporters at Emory University hospital. 
“I am thrilled to be alive, to be well, and to be reunited with my family. As a medical missionary, I never imagined myself in this position. When my family and I moved to Liberia two years ago, Ebola was not on the radar. We moved to Liberia because God called us to service in Liberia.”

Is Nigeria's Arik Air Truly 'The Wings of Africa'?

by Wale Odunsi 
When Nigeria's leading airline, Arik Air commenced operations on October 30, 2006, citizens, likewise foreigners heaved a sigh of relief. It was the final arrival of the long-awaited large bird-like machines; fresh wine in a new glass though on an old platter. Having endured average (in some cases below par) services of existing airlines at the time, not a few travellers wasted no time in telling them to make way, as 'the virgin-bride is here'.

Currently flying to 18 domestic destinations, 11 regional and international destinations and with fleet size of 26, Arik Air is undoubtedly the Nigeria's number one. So huge is its strength, that it is the national carrier of West African country, Sierra Leone. In fact, there was a period, analysts, industry experts as well as a number of nationals rooted for it to become the nation's official flag carrier after Air Nigeria (June 2010 - September 2012) bankrolled by billionaire businessman, Jimoh Ibrahim, ceased operations.

But sadly, the company once regarded as the principal of local players in the sector seems to have lost the passion, vigor and professionalism with which it entered the market nearly a decade ago. That fire is no longer burning. Indeed, the goodwill and admiration for Arik Air has dropped drastically, albeit travellers still maintain some form of loyalty.

Governor Mimiko Finally Dumps Labour Party, Decamps to PDP

President Goodluck Jonathan is doing everything possible to win the 2015 election. The game has started and it is sure going to be interesting between PDP and APC, hopefully Jonathan versus Buhari, or Atiku.

After months of 'speculations', the Ondo state governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko on Friday formally declared his intention to dump the Labour Party and join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In order to effectively work for Jonathan in 2015, Governor Mimiko has dumped the party he has sustained as governor and national leader since 2006 and he is now a PDP man.

Billionaire Businessman Gives Skales the Biggest Record Deal In Naija Music Industry

In most cases, it is true that patient dog eats the fattest bone. Since his departure from E.M.E early in the year, Skales has been on a roller coaster ride. First he unveiled his own record label, then he dropped a couple of chart topping singles, got signed on to a new record label, acquired a new car and he’s preparing to drop his elusive debut album in November 2014.

Well, here’s the real story of his new mouth watering record deal with Baseline Records.

The first advantage of his deal is the fact that despite being signed on to Baseline, led by industry veterans Howie T and Dipo Abdul, Skales gets to still maintain control and leadership of his own label OHK records, where he nurtures and grooms fast rising acts and producers.
The new deal Skales signed with Baseline is worth about N200m; the terms ensure he gets a brand new car, house, cash advance, and upkeep allowance, all totalling almost N200m.

REVEALED: Why Omisore Lost Osun To Aregbesola ––Falana

In this interview with Punch's Olusola Fabiyi, Femi Falana, who is a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, reviews the outcome of the August 9, 2015 governorship election in Osun State.

You predicted Governor Aregbesola was going to win and he won. What gave you that confidence?One didn’t have to be a futurologist to know that Governor Rauf Aregbesola was going to win the election. He is generally acknowledged to have taken governance very seriously. Having been involved in popular struggles, he has had no difficulty in connecting with the grass roots. Through his people-centred policies he has formed an organic link with the masses. In spite of the limited resources of Osun, Ogbeni Aregbesola is trying to address the crisis of poverty and underdevelopment. Through the social security scheme, the government pays N10, 000 monthly stipend to the elderly and unemployed youths numbering about 20, 000. The school feeding programme, the ‘Opon Imo’ (tablet of knowledge) revolution, the establishment of a textile factory for sewing school uniforms and other programmes have impacted positively on the people. Mind you, the government has also constructed thousands of kilometres of roads. The fact that he had endeared himself to the people was the basis of my confidence.

But his opponent rattled him? Don’t you agree?
I do not agree with you. Aregbesola spoke to me when the undue delay in the announcement of the results of the election caused so much tension and anxiety. Given the support of the people, he was on top of the situation. But the Independent National Electoral Commission refused to collaborate with the anti-democratic forces, who were hell-bent on truncating the electoral process.

Did the arrest and detention of APC leaders work against the APC and in favour of the PDP?
For sure, the wave of arrests was designed to manipulate the election in favour of the PDP. But it was a wrong calculation. Aregbesola mobilised the people and so they trooped out to vote. And when the returning officer had problems with the announcement of the results, the voters surrounded the INEC office at Osogbo. At that juncture the security forces pitched their tent with the people.

Can you please justify this?

I Caught My Husband Sléeping With My Best Friend

A laboratory technician, Modupe Ajayi, on Wednesday opened up at an Igando Customary Court, Lagos, that she caught her husband in bed with her best friend. Modupe, 40, was responding to Ajayi’s petition, urging the court to dissolve their 12 years marriage for alleged threat to life and lack of respect.

The wife made some socking relations:
“My husband is a shameless man. He slépt with my best friend. My husband is a womaniser, I caught him making love to my best friend in her house. I refused to employ any house help again as he has turned them into séx machine.”
She said that she stopped having sex with her husband, Mr. Ajayi, 50, since September because “I always had séxual infection some days after he made love to me. 
“I stopped making love to him and I stopped washing his clothes when I discovered that I always see and smell spe-rm on his boxers,” she said.
She said few days after their wedding, her husband abandoned her to go enjoy himself with another woman but he told her that he wanted to travel to the village to see his father...

Spouses of 2 Medical Personnel who Died of Ebola Have Tested Positive In Lagos

These are indeed sad times for the family of those who have been visited by the deadly Ebola Virus. Nigeria’s Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, on Friday confirmed that two more people have been infected with Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), bringing the number of current established cases to four.

Chukwu, who made the confirmation during an interaction with journalists, said the latest Ebola victims, are the spouses of two of the five people earlier killed by the disease.

It was earlier revealed that the spouse to late nurse Justina Ejelonu was admitted as a suspect case two days ago, now he has tested positive alongside the spouse of another doctor that earlier died of Ebola.

Why did Nigerian Dr. Adadevoh Died but US Dr. Brantly Survive?

Stella Damasus is not happy about this development. As Nigeria mourns the death of Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh, who treated the late Liberian Patrick Sawyer and got infected with Ebola Virus on the line of her duty, some top entertainers have lend their voices in a resounding tribute to the doctor.

However, actress Stella Damasus is questioning why American Dr. Kent Brantly, who contracted the Ebola Virus while treating infected individuals in Liberia, survived from the virus while Nigerian Dr. Adadevoh had to die. According to Ms. Damasus, it is all about nationality and governance.
In the words of Stella Damasus: “These two doctors were infected with Ebola. The American doctor (Dr kent brantly) has been treated and will be released from the Emory university hospital in Atlanta on Thursday. The Nigerian doctor (Dr stella Ameyo Adadevoh) is dead because there was no treatment for her.

“They both did the same work, trying to save people but one’s nationality saved him and the other one’s nationality killed her.”

That First Lady Patience Jonathan’s Fight in Namibia

Dame Patience Jonathan was in Namibia in July. There are reasons I take note of it. She had followed in the footsteps of President Goodluck Jonathan who was in that same country earlier this year. Nigerians shouldn’t forget that, on that occasion, Namibians had honoured their leader with the highest national award in their behalf, in the process thanking Nigerians for their assistance in the course of Namibia’s war of independence.

That’s a point once noted on this page, pointing out then that compared to other people from that part of the continent which enjoyed the same assistance from Nigeria, Namibians stand apart; they are a grateful people. So, just as one had stated then, and because every act of gratitude deserves another round of assistance if it’s needed, it’s repeated here that Nigeria should continue to stand by Namibians anytime, anywhere. 

For this reason, when Nigeria’s First Lady...

Update On Adamawa Guber: Atiku Moves To Displace PDP

Following the crisis currently rocking the PDP in Adamawa State, former vice president, Atiku Abubakar has begun moves to capture his home state for his party, All Progressives Congress in the governorship election billed to hold next month.

Leadership Friday gathered that Atiku is banking strongly on his growing profile as the undisputed leader of the APC in the state which has blossomed with the impeachment of former Governor Murtala Nyako and the defection of former chairman of the EFCC, Malam Nuhu Ribadu to the PDP last Saturday to test his political might in the forthcoming governorship by-election in the state.

A source close to the state chapter of the APC said the party leaders have turned to Atiku for direction in the battle to capture Adamawa by ensuring the choice of a formidable candidate who would take advantage of the confusion created by the defection of Ribadu to the PDP.

Ribadu Washes Hands Off Attack On Amaechi, Kwankwaso

•Rivers APC sheathes sword, withdraws statement
Emerging cracks in the relationship between former Chairman of EFCC, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu and Governors Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers State and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of Kano State have been mended after Ribadu distanced himself from a robust attack on the two governors.

In a reciprocal gesture, the Rivers State chapter of the APC early this morning withdrew its press statement in which it berated Ribadu, describing him as a political prostitute who has committed political suicide by defecting to the Peoples Democratic Party.

Explaining why he defected and washing his hands off the attack on Amaechi and Kwankwaso, Ribadu had said in a message to his Facebook friends:

Mike Brown: Must US Police Always Shoot To Kill?

Minorities are up in fiery protests over yet another point-blank killing of an unarmed US African-American youth. This is one more instance in many in which unarmed US minority youth have been summarily killed by US police.

In February of 2012, 18 year-old Ramarley Graham was killed in his home by invading New York police. As happens most times in these cases, when the police officers who killed young Graham were acquitted, Constance Malcolm the mother of Ramarley Graham in exasperation in the court raised her voice in protest.

When she was restrained by the judge, she said, “what more can you do to me?” You already killed my son, “what more can you do to me?”
