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.

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.

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