BOMBSHELL | Buhari opens up on why Babangida & His Boys took over his government

President Muhammadu Buhari has finally opened up on the 1985 coup, saying he was removed from office 31 years ago because he was planning to purge the military hierarchy of corruption.

Billionaire Indimi’s Daughter cries out Over Her Failed Marriage to Babangida's Son

They lost that loving feeling and the magic that imbues marriage with bliss; little wonder Mohammed Babangida, scion of the Ibrahim Babangida dynasty and his first wife, Rahma, the daughter of billionaire businessman Mohammed Indimi got separated.

Though Mohammed and his friends are keeping the news close to their chests, it is already a common topic of discourse in high society circles. We gathered that Mohammed is especially sad and shocked about how things degenerated to the point of separation between them. But he is taking solace in the fact that nothing happens without the imprimatur of the Almighty.

What is said to be giving the easy-going son of Nigeria’s former military leader happiness is Umuani. Both of them are already married as you read.

How Buhari/Osinbajo Government Plan to Save the Economy

The dwindling revenue due to several known factors are threatening these good plans. Nigerians are still hoping for the very best from this government, which came into power with a lot of goodwill.


by Ayo Sogunro
Last week, the Central Bank of Nigeria confirmed what has been obvious to millions of us: that these are difficult times in Nigeria. To be clear, it is hard to say there was ever an easy time for Nigerians. Yes, there were times—particularly between the late 60s and early 80s—when an educated minority had it good. Yes, for the political class, it is always good to be Nigerian. But, for the majority of citizens, it has never been easy.

The story of Nigeria, for the vast majority of us—the unemployed, subsistence farmers, minute-scale market traders, domestic workers, factory workers, wage earners and daily labourers—has been one of colonial exploitation, social inequality, underdevelopment, civil war, dictatorship, political corruption, economic instability, religious violence, and insecurity.

Still, things are about to get even more difficult...

TB JOSHUA: If I was using Occult Power, this is what would have happened...

Respected prophet TB Joshua, the founder of The Synagogue Church of All Nations in this interview with The News reveals some of the things many people don't know about him:

Many people are confused and they keep asking; what is the source of your power? There are critics who keep saying you use demonic or occult power, while others think otherwise.
The source of my power? It is written that by their fruits, you shall know them. If I open my mouth and say this is the source of my power, it would seem I am arrogant or boasting. Rather, I should boast about what God is doing in my life. It is by this kind of trial that you know the true minister of God.

So, if I am not of God, I will not survive this trial. But if I am of God, this trial will not destroy me. Trial is the soil in which faith flourishes. God sees his own people through trial.

State Governors can't pay salaries, but refusing to cancel their Multi-Billion security vote
