"If my husband cheats, I will castrate him' - Uche Jombo says in newinterview

In this interview with Sam Olatunji, Uche Jombo speaks on cheating and new movie ‘Unconditional’. What is it with the celebrity kids on your new movie, ‘Unconditional’?

There’s this little kid with a huge dream, he’s cute, girls love him, and he wants to be a mean boy, and he’s about as mean as a f**kin’ kitten, and he’s trying to act out,” says Osbourne. “It’s like pissing

Your Excellency, I bring you good tidings.

Strike: FG, ASUU meets today

THE Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, will meet today on the ongoing strike embarked upon by university lecturers over the non- implementation of the 2009 FG/ASUU agreement.
This came against the backdrop of Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chief Emeka Wogu’s denial of a newspaper report that the Federal Government agreement with ASUU could not work.
The minister said he never made such a statement and that he only appealed to the union to return to the classrooms while negotiations continued.
Last week, the two opposing sides had met with the Senate and House of Representatives Joint Committee on Education to find a solution to the crisis, so students could go back to school, but the meeting ended in deadlock and the two groups were told to go back and review their positions to come back on a latter date.

But the Minister of Education, Professor Ruqayyatu Rufa’I, while fielding questions from newsmen, yesterday, disclosed that the Federal Government had no other option than to meet with the union to resolve the crisis, so students can return to school.
Prof. Rufa’I said:   “Government has no option but to make efforts to resolve ASUU crisis. Mr. President is concerned, everybody is concerned, definitely, efforts will have to be made to have students back in classrooms.
“So we are pleading with our colleagues in ASUU to call off the strike but we are meeting with them, we are meeting tomorrow (today).
President of Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, Dr. Nasir Fagge, has said Nigeria’s economy had been taken over by Chinese as leaders in Nigeria have refused to provide quality education to the people, while the Chinese government trained its people in all sectors with the necessary facilities.
Dr. Fagge in an interview with Vanguard said Nigeria’s economy will continue to dwindle except leaders of the country provided universities with adequate facilities to give qualitative education to the youths.
He said: “The thing about it is that, if other countries are investing about 28-30 per cent of their annual budget in education, typically Ghana, even this year, Ghana has committed 28 per cent of its total budget to education, if they can do it, why not Nigeria.
“Is it because we are under the dictates of IMF and World Bank, don’t we want to do what is right, must our children continue to go to Ghanaian university for education, must our people be leaving our country, be brain-drained to other countries to go and develop their economies, must we continue this way”?
“Even now, what is happening is that the Chinese have taken over our economy simply because they have trained their people, they have educated their people and their people can compete any where in the World that is why our President is going to China to go and sign MoU (Memorandum of Understanding).
“Why cant we do the same, why cant we train our people and give them quality education so that we will also be exporting them to go and carry out assignments in other countries and then bring foreign exchange for our country and then we will not need to be importing people to come and do some sundry projects in our country.
“Most of the key contracts now are being

Child marriage: Pay her school fees not her bride price

For as long as I can remember, delusion, self-interest and greed have motivated not only the Nigerian government but the Nigerian people who often respond to the calculating, preying actions of their leaders not with outrage, but with the cunning of those who will profit by supporting what we all know to be wrong.
However, today I am proud of the outpouring of reactions following the passage of the Senate’s Bill making the age of consent in Nigeria 13 (in most European countries it is 16 and even in Spain, where it is still 13, activists, public figures, fight tirelessly to have it raised).
Child marriage has been legalised in Nigeria, everything our mothers and grand mothers have fought for, to guarantee us a right to education, a right to determine and decide for ourselves our path in life, has been swiftly destroyed. One question remains: Where are

Why would you swap Liverpool to go to Arsenal?' - Brendan Rodgers tells Luis Suarez

Brendan Rodgers has warned Luis Suarez that it would be a mistake to leave Liverpool for Arsenal following the improved offer from the Gunners in their attempt to lure the striker to the Emirates.
Arsenal followed up their initial £30m offer with a bid of £40m plus £1, believing that the price would trigger a clause in Suarez’s contract.
However, Liverpool immediately rejected the bid, and Rodgers has claimed that the Uruguayan would regret the move should he and his representatives push for a transfer.
Speaking to The Guardian, Rodgers said: "I know what we are trying to build and grow, so why would you swap Liverpool to go to Arsenal?
"I am not sure that it adds up, to be honest. Arsenal has a wonderful history in its own right but Liverpool is one of the biggest clubs in the world. Okay, we

Lady Gaga's drug use exposed in tell-all book

A former friend of Lady Gaga has penned an explosive tell-all book about his relationship with the singer and alleges she enjoyed "bags and bags" of cocaine.

Brendan Jay Sullivan - who was close to the 27-year-old pop star while she was an aspiring musician in New York City - has penned an explosive memoir about his friendship with the 'Poker Face' hitmaker, in which he claims she enjoyed "bags and bags" of the illegal substance.

In the new book, 'Rivington Was Ours: Lady Gaga, The Lower East Side and the Prime of Our Lives', Brendan alleges Gaga once brushed a mysterious white substance off the carpet at her Lower East Side apartment with her finger and proceeded to rub it into her gums.

She supposedly said: "It's mint. I wish it was coke. I used to do bags and bags of it. Mostly when I was getting ready to go out, while I was putting on my make-up.

"I'd get a delivery and then put on some Bowie and treat myself in the mirror. But I only ever did it alone. That was my one rule."

The 'Edge of Glory' songstress has previously opened up about her illicit habit prior to finding fame in 2009, revealing that depression led her down a drug-fuelled path.

She said: "I was very depressed when I was 19 ... I would go back to my apartment every day and I would just sit there. It was quiet and it was lonely. It was still. It was just my piano and myself.

"I had a television and I would leave it on all the time just to feel like somebody was hanging out with me. And especially during the period when I was doing cocaine. It was like the drug was my friend. I never did it with other people. It's such a terrible way to fill that void, because it just adds to that void, because it's not real."
