With the recent violence recorded in the general elections, Toke Makinwa thinks we might be having a rethink and appreciate the former president, Goodluck Jonathan.
The media personality took to her Twitter page on Monday, February 25, 2019, where she tweeted about the various irregularities at the just concluded general elections which included violence and ballot box snatching.
“Ballot box snatching, burning down election materials cos you are dissatisfied it’s not going in your Favor is weak! If you lose, lose with some dignity, I hope we all appreciate Goodluck now. Sighhhhh,” she tweeted.
She went on to say that the problem Nigeria is facing is greed, selfishness and lack of love which are all man-made.
“I even get tired of calling God into our matter as Nigerians, he has given us so much, blessed us so much. Our problem is man-made, selfishness, greed, lack of love ￼,” she added.
Whether we like it or not, Toke Maknwa appears to be making a whole lot of sense and we think some people might agree with her on this one. Since the build-up to the elections, Toke Makinwa has joined the list of celebrities who have been quite vocal about it.
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board has closed the sale of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination forms.
The board’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that the sales of the forms, ended on Thursday.
Benjamin, however, said that online registration was still ongoing.
Benjamin said, “This is because some people earlier bought e-pins for the exams but were unable to register before now, so we are monitoring them online and would avail them the opportunity to register.
”Therefore, we cannot give the exact figure of the registered candidates for now until this is over. ”
He added that the registration would continue until the board decided.
NAN reports that the board had commenced the sale and online registration of 2019 to 2020 UTME forms on January 10 and was scheduled to end on Feb. 21.
On the issue of rescheduled dates for both the mock and main examinations, Benjamin said that the board was yet to decide on a new date but would give updates as soon as possible.
NAN reports that the board considered rescheduling the initial dates for the examination because of the shift of dates for the general elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Speaking also on the suspension of 17 Computer Based Test (CBT) centres across the country, Benjamin said that the suspension would not, in any way, affect the process of the examinations as the board had over 700 accredited centres nationwide.
The Police Command in Enugu State has debunked a social media reports of a bomb explosion within Enugu metropolis, few hours before the general elections.
Late Friday evening, rumour went round that there was a bomb explosion at at popular Otigba junction Enugu.
Another report claimed a bomb was also discovered at New Market, Enugu.
The Police Command in Enugu State has now reacted to the rumours in a fresh statement issued by the command’s Police Public Relations Officer, SP Ebere Amaraizu.
The statement which was entitled: “No Bomb Explosion in Enugu State: Disregard Mischief Makers Misinformation,’’ said that the command’s bomb explosive specialists only picked up a suspicious object in the metropolis that looked like an explosive for further analysis. He said;
“The command through its operatives of the Explosive Ordinance Department have commenced full analysis of the object picked near a bush close to a fence of a building located at Old Ngwo Road in Enugu today.
“It was gathered that through information received that an object suspected to be explosive ordinance was found as a man was clearing the bush near the said fence at about 9:30 a.m. today.
“Our operatives promptly got to the scene and recovered the object which is currently being analysed for further necessary action,’’
Attorney Michael Avenatti, last Thursday, handed an R. Kelly sextape to Cook County prosecutors. The 45-minute videotape is said to show R Kelly performing multiple sex acts with an underage girl, whom both Kelly and the girl describe on tape as being 14 years old.
Read below details about Attorney Michael Avenatti as he addressed the investigation against R. Kelly.
R Kelly was charged on Friday with multiple criminal counts of sexual abuse of a teenager.,”
Avenatti told CNN last week:
“My client knows the identity of the girl and R. Kelly. He identified the two of them on the videotape. He worked for and has known R. Kelly for decades and he met the girl on a number of occasions.”
Who is Attorney Michael Avenatti?:
• He represents 6 clients. Retained in April of last year by a concerned parent.
• I am representing at least one individual involved in the grand jury indictment.
• Says he’s been retained on a pro bono basis because of the miscarriage of justice in this case and the vulnerability of R Kelly’s victims.
• Avenatti says he represents the parents of one of the women believed to be with R Kelly right now.
John Legend explains why he spoke about R. Kelly
Attorney Michael Avenatti on R Kelly:
• Attorney Michael Avenatti says R Kelly did not do this alone & it was all in the interest of money. “They didn’t want to kill the golden goose.”
• Says 2008 trial was rigged by R Kelly and his team. A team he consistently refers to as “enablers.”
• Avenatti refers to video brought up last week, but says his office knows of at least two more videos incriminating Kelly.
• Says they may add additional charges. Calls charges brought upon Kelly today well-thought out, conservative and the tip of the iceberg.
Avenatti’s message to R Kelly:
After 25 years of serial sexual abuse and assault of underage girls, the day of reckoning for R Kelly has arrived.
He will die in a prison…he should never walk free. The fix was in the first time…I’m highly confident that nothing is going to get screwed up this time.”
There’s no question that people very close to R Kelly participated in this conduct and enabled it…all in the interest of money.
It is high time you face justice for the conduct you’ve engaged in for the better part of two decades…don’t count on ever getting out of prison.”

ATTORNEY MICHAEL AVENATTI
Read Attorney Michael Avenatti’s statement below:
Good afternoon. Let me start by thanking state attorney Kim Fox and her exceptional staff for their dedication and professionalism that they have exhibited while working with me and my clients over the last few weeks.
The city of Chicago and Cook County are very fortunate to have Kim Fox and her professional staff at the helm of this criminal prosecution and I am highly confident extremely confident that at the end of this journey, R Kelly will be convicted on multiple counts.
Miss Fox, from the very first moment that I approached her in connection with the information that we had uncovered has been nothing but dedicated and professional.
She gave me her personal assurance the first time that I met her in person earlier this month that she was going to see to it that a fair and thorough investigation was conducted by her office. That they were going to be diligent and beyond thorough as it related to getting to the bottom of this evidence and potentially bringing criminal charges against R Kelly.
This has not been a rush to judgment by any stretch of the imagination they have been very thorough as I said earlier, dedicated and methodical in their investigation.
I presently represent six clients – two victims two parents as well as two whistleblowers who can both be described as knowing R Kelly and being within his inner circle for the better part of 25 years.
My office was originally retained in April of last year by a concerned parent. We began a thorough investigation, we traveled the United States, we interviewed witnesses, we uncovered documents and we did so very very quietly so as to ensure that no complaints could later be made that we were pursuing this for any other reason other than justice.
Again, we began in April of last year. Earlier this month, we uncovered and recovered a videotape of over 40 minutes in length. We promptly brought it to the attention of Miss Fox and others in her office.
This tape leaves no question as to whether R Kelly is guilty of multiple sexual illegal acts against a 14 year old girl.
GRAPHIC DETAILS OF R KELLY’S SEXTAPE WITH THE 14 YEAR OLD GIRL STARTS HERE:
The tape was shot in the late 90s approximately 1999. It depicts two separate scenes shot on two separate days within Mr. Kelly’s residence at the time.
The audio on the tape is clearly, you can clearly listen to it it is clear. The video is far superior than the video that was used in connection with the 2008 trial. It is an entirely different video.
Repeatedly on the video, both the victim and Mr. Kelly referred to the victim’s age as being 14. That occurs in excess of 10 separate times on the video both the victim and mr. Kelly can be heard referencing her age.
It is also clear from other things that are depicted on the video that this was in no way role playing during some sexual act. It is clear that this young lady was 14 years of age during the time the video was shot.
Mr. Kelly, throughout the video stops what he’s doing, stops his acts of sexual assault and he needs to move the video camera and adjust the camera angle zooming in, changing the direction of the shot and things of that nature. So there’s no question that he knew exactly what he was doing at one time or at one point in time on the video.
In the first scene it is clear that Mr. Kelly is having the victim watch another piece of pornography which appears to be him with yet another young girl on a big-screen television in the background.
Repeatedly on the video, the young lady refers to mr. Kelly as daddy. The video depicts mr. Kelly engaged in oral sex with the young victim, both receiving as well as giving, as well as vaginal intercourse and anal penetration.
There are also instances of Mr. Kelly urinating on the young girl on the videotape.
This video was turned over again to Miss Foxx and others in her office earlier this month within days of our recovery of the tape. We have since provided additional information and evidence to Miss Fox and others in her office.
We envision continuing to do so because our investigation is not complete. We are aware of two other tapes in existence one of which we have recovered. The second of which we are in the process of recovering and as soon as we do, we will be providing those tapes as well to miss Fox and others in her office.
Today marks a watershed moment in the 25 years of abuse by this predator known as R Kelly.
He together with those that enabled him undertook a course of action over two decades to abuse and sexually assault young girls especially many of whom were the most vulnerable in our society.
Girls that many would not listen to, girls that came from very tough times in tough neighborhoods in many instances. These were the most vulnerable and yet this predator mr. Kelly preyed on them repeatedly.
I want to send a message to the enablers of mr. Kelly to the agents, the managers and the attorneys and the others who stood idly by and looked the other way and turned a blind eye as he assaulted for over two decades. I will not rest until each of you is brought to justice.
We will uncover evidence relating to your participation in these crimes. Mr. Kelly did not do this alone. He did so with the assistance of all of these folks and it was all let’s be clear in the interest of money.
These people, these agents, these attorneys and these managers, they looked the other way while these young girls were being taking advantage of instead of doing the right thing because they didn’t want to kill the Golden Goose.
They didn’t want to interfere with their own individual paydays and as far as I’m concerned they are just as guilty as the predator R Kelly.
It is disgusting and every parent in America should be disgusted not only by the conduct of mr. Kelly but by those that turned a blind eye, that looked the other way while this occurred for over two decades.
As a father of two teenage girls 14 and 16, I am especially outraged and disgusted by this conduct and the amount of time that it is taken to bring this predator to justice.
I stand here before you as a father and as a man that believes in the rule of law and that of justice, with a sense of satisfaction, temporary satisfaction today as a result of these very serious charges but our job is not done.
We are going to continue to represent our clients, we are going to continue to do what we’ve done for over ten months all in the pursuit of justice and what is right.
I am highly confident that mr. Kelly will be convicted.
I am confident that he will be convicted in other jurisdictions as well and he will rightfully die in a prison, somewhere whether it be in Illinois or elsewhere in America.
He should never walk free another day in his life as a result of the over two decades of abuse that he dished out and participated in time and time again.
APC chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has reacted to a report that he owns ACT Technologies, a company responsible for printing permanent voters cards, PVC, and card readers.
The company which reportedly manipulated results in the 2015 elections is said to supply materials to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
Reacting to the report that he is among the owners of the tech company, Tinubu through his spokesman Tunde Rahman denied the claims via a statement seen below.
“If lies were sand, this story would be a desert. Perhaps the only thing this story manages to get correct is the spelling of Asiwaju’s name. However, the story is but an unfortunate and crude attempt to malign Asiwaju’s name. Asiwaju has absolutely no relation to, or interest in, Act Technologies Limited. He had never even heard of the company until the PDP (and its cronies in the media) started this campaign of calumny a few days ago,”
“Moreover, Asiwaju has never been involved in the supply of card readers, voter registration and accreditation frameworks or any other materials or services to INEC. Never.
“Let us be clear in this matter. If any political party was in control of INEC’s procurement practices in 2014/2015, it would have been the one in control of the federal government at that time. Asiwaju never asked for, nor did he receive, anything or any contract from Jonathan’s government. As incompetent as his administration was, even President Jonathan would not have sat idly by while important electoral contracts were being handed over to his most implacable political foe. As often happens with fiction concocted by amateurs, the application of a little common sense causes the entire story to fall apart.
“Even the technological aspects of the report are fantastical and unfounded. The whole thing simply makes no sense from a technical point of view.
“The report only makes sense as part of a concerted effort to attack Asiwaju. Why the PDP and their media boosters fear him so much, we leave for them to answer. But it is odd that they expend so much time and energy manufacturing falsehoods against someone whose name will not even appear on any ballot.
“This story is simply another effort by those opposed to President Buhari and the APC to justify their plans to distort the elections by alleging that the APC government is illegitimate and was rigged into office.
“The only problem being that the facts do not support their claims nor their rationale for cheating. These people are incurable. They do not rig because they were once victimized by rigging. They rig because rigging is not only in their blood, it is their blood.
“Such errant nonsense has no place in our national discourse”, Tinubu stated.

In the wake of gender equality and same-sex marriage, schools in France will now be unable to refer to a child’s parents as their “mother” or “father” on documents, instead the titles will be replaced with “parent 1” and “parent 2,” so as to accomodate gay couples.
The amendment was passed in parliament as part of the country’s Schools of Trust law and aims to reduce the discrimination faced by same-sex parents.
“To prevent discrimination, school enrolment, class registers, parental authorisations and all other official forms involving children must mention only Parent 1 and Parent 2,” the amendment reads.
French President Emmanuel Macron’s Republique en Marche party backed the change, with MP Valérie Petit saying this amendment of the wider law recognises “children’s family diversity in administrative forms”.
“We have families who find themselves faced with tick boxes stuck in rather old-fashioned social and family models,” Ms Petit said. “For us, this article is a measurement of social equality.”
A powerful 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck eastern Ecuador during the early morning hours of Friday and at least six three people have sustained injuries.
The earthquake occurred at 5:17 a.m. ECT/EST with the epicenter in the rural area located near the central border of Peru and Ecuador, according to the United States Geological Survey.
That was followed by a 5.5 magnitude earthquake that occurred less than 25 minutes later in western Ecuador, near the city of Guayaquil. There has been no immediate word of fatalities, and Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno stated that preliminary reports do not indicate major damage occurred.
Six people were injured in Gualaquiza, Macas and Cuenca, according to a press release from the National Risk and Emergency Management Service of Ecuador. Six houses were affected, along with two health centers in Guayaquil and Gualaquiza. As a precaution, the airport and tunnels of Guayaquil were closed but have since reopened.
Power outages were also reported in Chone, Portoviejo and Sucre. Power has since been restored. Regional emergency centers had been activated in the event they are needed, National Public Radio stated.
