Nigerians now celebrate people with questionable wealth – Pres Buhari says

2a

President Buhari yesterday said the decay in the value system in our society has led to celebration of some Nigerians with questionable wealth. President Buhari said this at the 65th Annual Council Meeting of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) in Abuja.

President Buhari, who was represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, said public servants and many Nigerians in the private sectors who have questionable wealth are now being celebrated with alumni recognitions, honourary degrees, chieftaincy titles and sometimes higher religious titles in the country.

“Today the attainment of wealth, power or educational influence is the mark of success which is not necessarily a bad thing except we are no longer concerned with the process of attaining success. The end it appears today justifies the means which explains why cheating in exams and fake certificates simply do not generate the sort of outrage that such conduct would have generated years ago. Public servants and many in the private sectors who have unexplanable wealth are celebrated in one form or the other with alumni recognitions, honourary degrees, chieftaincy titles and even higher religious titles. Often, cheating is with the collusion of parents and teachers. This only reflects the failure of values in our larger society.”he said.

Donald Trump hammers Snopp Dogg for shooting a clown ‘that looks like him’ with fake firearm in new music video

unnamed
In rapper Snopp Dogg’s new music video for Lavender, he parodies a presidential assassination. The clip focuses on current events including a version of a Clown-in-Chief, named Ronald Klump, holding a press conference to announce the deportation of all dogs, spelled ‘doggs’.
In the final scene, Snopp takes out a fake gun and points it towards a clown-like character with painted orange face. The clown in the controversial video puts his hands up as if under arrest as Snoop draws the pistol, with a flag popping out that says ‘Bang!’. ‘This is the final call,’ raps Snoop.

As usual, Donald Trump took to twitter to lash out. He wrote: ‘Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!’

0 (1)

Nigerians have gone on Instagram to verbally attack Foston Utomi after he put up a post following his wife’s post accusing him of battery. Just yesterday, Ajoke, Foston’s wife of one year, shared a bloody picture of herself and accused her husband of inflicting the injuries on her (read here).
She also revealed that she has left him for good and has no intention of going back.She said that the fact he bought her a Range Rover means nothing.

Soon after, Foston posted a cryptic message which, no doubt, was directed at his wife and Nigerians went ham on him. The attacks from Nigerians on Instagram were savage, to say the least.
See a few of the comments after the cut…

When you’re holding on to someone who doesn’t want to stay. – There are certain people who aren’t meant to fit into your life no matter how much you want them to. And the only ones truly worthy of your love are the ones who stand with you through the hard times and laugh with you after the hard times pass. Maybe a happy ending doesn’t include anyone else right now. Maybe it’s just you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is simply letting go and taking a bold step forward. MARC AND ANGEL

Brave 4-year-old risks wolves and below zero Siberia climate to rescue grandma

ooooo

4-year-old Saglana Salchak has been called the bravest girl in Siberia after she walked five miles through a wolf-packed forest, across a frozen river to get help for her 60-year-old grandmother who was unconscious.

Saglana, who lives with her grandmother and blind grandfather in Tuva republic, Russia, set out with just a box of matches as temperatures dropped below 29 degrees. She walked for over three hours in the cold before she was seen by neighbours who took her to the hospital for check-up. Sadly, the grandmother she was trying to save had died of heart attack which was why she was motionless.

“I just walked, walked and got there,” the little girl later told a local newspaper, Komsomolskaya Pravda, and revealed that her biggest concerns were not fear, but rather she was desperately cold and hungry.

Saglana’s journey has led to an investigation by the Tuva Investigative Committee as to why there was no adequate phone or emergency communications in the district. The committee opened a criminal case against the young girl’s mother, Eleonora Salchak, for leaving a minor in danger. If charged, she could face a year in prison.

“She knew that the elderly lacked the ability to take measures to guarantee the child’s safety,” the committee said in a statement.

Saglana now lives in a local social center.
