Former President Obasanjo congratulatory message to President-elect, Gen. Buhari

                        
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has sent a congratulatory message to Gen Buhari on his victory today. Read his message below;

"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, agri-business, 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. is blessed with 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 re-direction that will be imperative to put Nigeria back on the fast lane of good governance, unity, cohesiveness, development and progress. 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 ” the statement read

Although some people have expressed mixed feelings about the results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), I urge those who may feel aggrieved to follow due process based on our constitution and our electoral laws, in seeking redress.

Former VP Atiku Abubakar congratulates Gen. Buhari... read his post on Facebook below;

My hearty congratulations to His Excellency, General Muhammadu Buhari, for being elected the next president of our beloved county, Nigeria. You have led our party, the All Progressives Congress to an unprecedented victory within two years of it’s official formation, and in so doing, written the most important chapter of our democracy.

The great Nnamdi Azikiwe once wrote that “history will continue to vindicate the just”. Your victory in the polls, with votes from across the length and breadth of our country, bears witness to the acceptance of not just our party, the APC, but also your ideology of justice, fair play and zero tolerance for corruption as the bedrock for national rebirth.

2015 Election: Mr. President GEJ concedes, calls to congratulate Gen. Buhari

                        
                       
Wow! according to a report circulating the social media channels, Mr. Chude Jideonwu said  Mr. President, Goodluck Jonathan has called to congratulate Gen. Buhari for winning the presidential elections 2015 even though the final results has not yet been announced by INEC. Well, the fact that it remains only but one state to go which also stands in favour of APC no doubt must have sent the signal that it is a lost battle.

Well, it must be noted though that Mr. President action is commendable and a sign that he sue for peace despite loosing the elections.

UK court turns down Google appeal

                             Scale
The UK Court of Appeal has turned down Google’s assertion that users in the country could not sue the company for its activities in the UK.

There were other issues, but that was the key one. For privacy campaigners, it signals the end of immunity against local court action claimed by Google and the other US internet giants against users in the UK and Europe, according to ComputerWeekly.com.

In a much more limited county court action in 2014, Microsoft, Facebook and Google made the same defence – that a UK user could not sue them in a UK court for actions they performed in the UK – in Guildhall Court in London.

Photos: Boxing living legend, Floyd Mayweather's chauffeur shows off fleet of cars


Boxing super star, Floyd Mayweather Jr. who still holds a staggering record as an undefeated boxer shows off his state of the art car collections.

What good is being crazy rich if you don't have an insane amount of exotic cars to choose from? Floyd Mayweather's chauffeur, Bruce "The Driver" Miller, shows how the boxing champ has put his millions to use in the garage, and how meticulously Miller is expected to handle the rides.

Presidential, N’Assembly elections vicious,unprincipled, vulgar and violent –Soyinka

                                     Prof. Wole Soyinka
Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has described the presidential and National Assembly elections as the most vicious, unprincipled, vulgar and violent he had ever witnessed.

Soyinka, in an interview with The Guardian UK on Sunday, was quoted as saying, “We’re talking about a very positive response by the public in terms of determination to register and vote but, you know, this has been one of the most vicious, unprincipled, vulgar and violent exercises I have ever witnessed.

“I just hope we won’t go down as being the incorrigible giant of Africa.”

According to Soyinka, the stakes appear to be so high that all scruples have been set aside and it’s very distressing to compare this election with that of 1993, which was one of the most orderly, civilised and resolute elections the country ever had.

"Persons located in threatened coastal areas should stay alert for information and follow instructions from national and local authorities," it added.

Village in India bans kissing in public

                             Image result for Kissing couple
An Indian village in a western coastal state has imposed a ban on couples kissing in public, claiming the sight of such “obscene” behaviour is unwanted by local residents.

The village parliament of Salvador-de-Mundo, eight miles north of Goa’s capital Panaji, unanimously passed a resolution this week warning holidaymakers against engaging in public displays of affection.

“We have adopted this resolution following complaints from villagers about couples kissing in public. This was the only way to put an end to it,” deputy village chief Reena Fernandes told AFP on Thursday.

She said they had complained to local authorities but a lack of response had forced the council to take matters into its own hands and pass a resolution which also “banned public drinking and playing loud music.”

However, she declined to comment on whether punitive action will be taken against potential violators of the bylaws.
