Dont be surprised if your dreams dont come to pass

You keep going to a job you hate, doing work that doesn't interest you and working towards a career that you are not even remotely passionate about!

You keep spending money you don't have on things you don't really want or care for and wonder why you are in the position you are currently in.

You have a lazy attitude when it comes to your health and you keep over eating and only exercise when you need to squeeze into that dress for someone's wedding...then you wonder why you don't have the energy to work on your dreams, goals and yourself!

You are more interested in being entertained than learning, growing & developing as a person so you waste your time playing candy crush and watching the latest TV series at night rather than reading books that will change your life or working on your blue print for success, joy and fulfilment!

Please Don't be surprised or disappointed if your dreams don't ever come true!

They simply can't come true because you keep doing the same things that everyone else does and you think for some strange reason the outcome of your life will be different...

I'm here to tell you it won't be different if you keep following everyone else and Keep doing what you have been doing up to this point in your life!

Unless you can start to think differently and change yourself and your life your dreams are unlikely to ever come true.....It is up to you to change yourself and your actions, habits, attitude, beliefs and values so that you can create the life and results you want! -cc before5am

It reportedly dragged Aliyah to the back of the house where two other Alsatian dogs joined it in attacking her. .

They inflicted multiple injuries on her body in an attack residents said lasted for about two hours.The father, Wasiu, who was responsible for the care of the dogs, had reportedly gone to buy the dogs' feed when the incident happened on Monday.

Around 11pm of that day, some residents reportedly invaded the house and killed Rover.Aliyah was taken to the Ikorodu General Hospital.The father told punch  around 4pm on Wednesday that his daughter had a minor surgery at the hospital, before she was transferred to LASUTH.

He said, "This afternoon, the doctors said her condition had worsened and she was not breathing normally again. They said they would need to take her to the Intensive Care Unit where I would spend about N500,000 per day. They have not been asking for money from me, except for the drugs. Please help me ask Nigerians for support."


Around 6pm, Wasiu informed PUNCH Metro that Aliyah had been pronounced dead and broke down in tears.He lamented that his life would never be the same again.The Director of the Office of Public Defender, Mrs. Olubukola Salami, expressed sadness at the news, adding that measures were being taken to forestall a recurrence in the state.

Salami said the agency was making an arrangement to remove the 15 dogs in the house where the incident happened. 

FG rules out borrowing from IMF

The Federal Government, yesterday, ruled out the option of obtaining any loan facility from the International Monetary Fund, IMF, stating that the country was not having a balance of payment problem. It also cited the painful and stringent conditions associated with borrowing from the organisation. .
.
.
Speaking in an interview monitored on CNBC Africa in Abuja, Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, said Nigeria was only faced with fiscal problems and the Federal Government would want Nigerians to take responsibility for their future. .
.
.

She said: "The issue of the IMF borrowing is a huge national debate. For us, the IMF is a lender of last resort, when you have balance of payment problems. Nigeria does not have Balance of Payment problem per se, it has a fiscal problem, which is that its major revenue sources lost so much value. First we lost price, then we lost quantity." .
.
.

She explained that Nigeria's challenges are different, adding that what the IMF does for any country seeking to borrow money from it is that they give them a programme of reforms. Adeosun noted that the country is already doing as much reforms as any IMF programme would impose on Nigeria. .
.
"So, my question is what would that bring that we are not already doing? What measures would be introduced that we are not already doing?" she queried. She further stated that Nigerians must take responsibility for their future, while the country must initiate home-grown, home-designed programmes of reforms that Nigerians could take ownership of, due to the fact that reforms of the IMF were painful.
.
.
.

The minister said: "When you go through this type of adjustment of your economy, the reforms are very painful and I think they have  got to be home-grown; we have got to take responsibility for this ourselves, so that when it succeeds, Nigerians are going to say, 'yes, we did this.' "I am not saying that the IMF is bad; I am just saying that right now, we do not see that need. We feel that this is a problem that Nigerians created one way or the other, and Nigerians must solve."

EXPOSED!!! Tonto Dikeh Blackmails Husband, Spreads Propaganda With Colleagues On Social Media (SEE Recorded Evidence)

Indeed, the marriage crisis of controversial actress Tonto Dikeh is getting heated up with the latest moves by a source close to her to ensure her husband Olakunle Churchill is portrayed in a bad light. According to exclusive information from AbujaCity News,  actress who started the marriage crashing scandal with the removal of the husband name on her instagram, was reported to have allegedly fuelled the PA and husband romance to attract public sympathy.

It was revealed according inside source, that the mother of one, boasted to her husband that she would drag his image to the mud with her overwhelming influence on social media. She threatened to bring him down on social media as the husband does not command such authority or fame on the Internet.  Her supposed determination to downplay him and his image, instigated her messy disposition in her mother- inlaw's house, where she was alledgedly accused of attacking and pushing down her mother- in law. Her 2 hours breaking of home properties was reported to be as a result of her marijuana related reactions in her family home. Which according to source was the height of embarrasing the husband faced that prompted him to travel. Tonto Dikeh, hurriedly removed her husband's name on instagram to elicit fand sympathy for her and public condemnation for the husband.

As the issue of the alleged infidelity of her husband was gradually phasing off as the accused lady refuted the claim on TV, Tonto Dikeh was fingered to have sponsored her colleague, one Uche Maduagwu of TINSEL to fire another allegation of Gay accusation, with recorded Youtube video -  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zeiHZteQPac    The unpopular young Actor earlier posted today that Bobrisky and Lagos designer Swankyjerry were his bae? The post was hurriedly  removed. Uche Maduagwu quickly posted again that his account was hacked to defend the earlier posted. Swankyjerry is said to be the friend to Tonto Dikeh and a family friend of the couple. The Misleading story from Uche Maduagwu attacking Churchill on Instagram was brought down by some blogs including Instagblog for its strong defaming impression.‎

The latest gist which is believed to have emanated from an online media few hours ago in a rumour capacity but consciously sponsored gossip, is the domestic violence which was alleged to be one of the reason she left the married. This seem very obvious that the excuses to justify her celebrity marriage breakup is to keep throwing stones on the husband and sacrificing her family secrecy on the alter of social media

Corrupt Police, Army and Customs officers to blame for high cost of food items - Minister of Agriculture

Chief Audu Ogbeh, has blamed rising cost of food items on corrupt practices of men of the Nigeria Police, Nigeria Army, and Nigeria Customs Service. .

.
These truck drivers based on raw lamentations made to the Ministry in recent time, alleged that at every check points, they are always forced to part with reasonable amount of money by any group of the security agencies, which they said, made farmers to have no option than to factor cost of the extortion into prices of the food items."

Saturday, February 4, 2017, was World Cancer Day.

As we celebrate the World Cancer Week, Kelina Hospital wishes to bring to the knowledge of the general public that it is very important for people to see their doctor at the earliest possible time when they notice the following on their bodies: ·  A new swelling, which was not there before. ·  Bleeding from any orifice of their body, which is not physiological ·  Difficulty breathing, swallowing, passing urine, or defaecating

These are some common signs of tumours or cancers in the body.

Some people are afraid of surgery and would definitely prefer "key hole" or Minimal Access Surgery. This is what Kelina Hospital is known for. These surgeries have the following advantages, amongst others: ·  There is less blood loss ·  The scar is so small, and sometimes there is no scar at all ·  There is less pain ·  There is early return to work. Over half of our patients go back home the same day after this type of surgery ·  Patient can very quickly return to normal life, including normal feeding

When surgery is over-delayed, tumours become extremely big and, in most cases, Minimal Access Surgery is no longer possible. The advantages of minimal access surgery are lost.

We had a case of an abdominal tumour that weighed 24kg which we removed in this hospital. Surgery lasted 3 hours and patient required 6 pints of blood transfusion. Patient did well post-operatively. We thought we should bring this information to the general public because it is the fear of surgery and fear of losing an organ that made patient delay this surgery. Unfortunately, that delay meant that Minimal Access Surgery using lasers or endoscopes or laparoscopic approach was no longer feasible at the time patient presented in the hospital. This made it necessary to talk to our citizens, that surgery delayed causes more harm to the patient than when done early, and the very thing people try to avoid may sometimes become impossible because of that delay. Cure is much more difficult, and delay, in the case of cancer surgery, can result in spread.
Thanks immensely.

Wait Till 2019 Before Judging Us- Amaechi

Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, yesterday, said All Progressives Congress, APC, government did not promise to fix Nigeria's problem within a year and cautioned those lamenting the economic hardship to wait till 2019 for the desired change .
.

Also, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, cautioned Nigerians against making statements that could cause religious disharmony, warning that "no nation has ever survived religious war." .
.

The ministers spoke in Ilorin, Kwara State, during a North Central town hall meeting for the people of Kogi, Niger and Kwara states by the Federal Government. .
.

Amaechi, who was the Director General of the Campaign Organisation of President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2015 elections, said though the Federal Government knows that things are difficult, .
.

Nigerians should wait till the end of the four-year mandate given to the administration before they can judge whether the government had performed or not. .
.

Rotimi Amaechi According to him, "we did not promise you that those challenges will be solved in one year or you would have given us a one-year mandate. But you gave us four years mandate, so wait till the end of four years before you can conclude that we have not done well." .
.

While giving stewardship of his ministry, the minister lamented that the refusal of the National Assembly to approve the government's borrowing plan from China was drawing the government back, urging the people from the three states to prevail on the National Assembly to approve the loan. .
.

According to him, if accessed, the loan would enable the government embark on the rivatalisation of rail projects, which would create more jobs.

Emir Sanusi wants Mosques converted to primary schools

The Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi, has called on governors of northern states to convert mosques to primary schools, especially in the villages. The emir made the call in his remarks at an event in the Kano Educational Week programme.
.
.
"I was in Morocco sometimes ago and I asked to see their universities. They took me to mosques where I saw each serving as classrooms teaching Computer Science and other subjects," he said.
.
.
Mr. Sanusi said mosques were not initially meant for prayers alone. He said historically, mosques were also used for other things like marriages, scholarly activities and leadership trainings.
.
.
He urged the northern state governors who have many mosques to return to the practice so as to save money for other needs. The Emir said if the idea was adopted, funds allocated to building schools could be channeled to training of teachers and providing for their welfare and other teaching instruments. 

Boko Haram gave me N200 to detonate explosive and go to heaven – Teenage suicide bomber

An 18-year-old Boko Haram suicide bomber, Amina, who was intercepted by men of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, on Tuesday in Maiduguri, said she was given N200 for the mission. .
.
She told the News Agency of Nigeria in Maiduguri that she was abducted two years ago by the sect members in Madagali, Adamawa, and taken to Sambisa forest. "They gave us N200 each which they said we should use to buy food for ourselves.

It took us three days to come to Maiduguri on a motorcycle. We were directed by the sect members to detonate our explosives any where we saw any form of gathering. .
.
.
They said if we press the button, the bomb would explode and we will automatically go to heaven. I was scared, so, I told them that I could not detonate any explosive. So, they said if Zainab detonated her own, it would serve the purpose.
.
.
On our way to Maiduguri, we encountered the military and they were shooting. I was very scared and the people that brought us ran away," Amina said. .
.
She said that her father, mother and younger brother, Umar, were all killed when they tried to escape from the Boko Haram enclave where they were held hostage. .
.
"We came from Gobarawa along Damboa, Madagali and Algarno axis, in a community where a lot of us were held hostage and married off by the sect members. I also am married to a Boko Haram Commander known as "Amir," she added.
.
.
At about 6.45 a.m, today, personnel of the NSCDC had intercepted two female suicide bombers, who tried to ram into motorists at the NNPC Mega Station along Damboa Road, Maiduguri. .

Samuel Ikon of the Peoples Democratic Party in Akwa Ibom; and Mr. Mohammed Garba-Gololo, also of the  APC in  Bauchi State. .

'Yes, sex is food' - Actress Nkechi Emmanuel tells married Nigerian women

Nollywood actress, Nkechi Emmanuel popularly known as Nurse Titi in the TV Series 'Clinic Matters' has advised married Nigerian women to see sex as food if they don't want their husbands to look elsewhere for it.
.
.

According to Vanguard, Nkechi said in a broadcast:
"Sex is not all about making children. You must be a different woman to your husband every time. Seduce your husband, don't always allow your husband to ask for sex, there must be no timetable for sex.
Be creative, don't be predictable. .
.
.
. .  Give him what he wants. If you lose influence over your husband, you have lost womanhood. Be part of your husband's plans. Allow your
husband to check in and out anytime. When a man is sexually satisfied, he is emotionally stable. .
.

Stop saying, is it food? Yes, sex is food. Pamper your husband, put his head on your chest and pray for him. Give him unannounced kiss from the back…. mwahhhhhh, don't be too holy to kiss and appreciate him in the public. He is your "Baby" and you are his "Mother" & your husband for God sake. Be romantic joooo, it is good for the heart. .
.

Some people are not happy that you're happy in that marriage, proof them wrong that you love him and he is your crown, always feel good when you hold him," she added. 

EFCC has frozen my accounts again – Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Saturday said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission had again frozen his personal accounts with Zenith Bank.The governor said the bank refused to honour his cheque based on a directive from the EFCC when he went there on Friday.
.
.

This came three days after a Federal High Court, Ado Ekiti, dismissed a motion for stay of execution of the judgment unfreezing the accounts for lacking in merit. .
.

Justice Taiwo Taiwo while ruling on the motion filed by the EFCC against his judgment unfreezing the accounts and delivered on December 13 said that "once a judgment is being executed, you cannot stay the execution again." .
.

Fayose said, "This is the impunity we are condemning. The bank and the EFCC got all the judgments of the court, but the agency still harassed the bank to act against the law. If I sent somebody with a cheque, they could give excuse but I was there myself; acts of impunity such as this cannot continue. We will challenge them." .
.

He added that he had received revelations that he would be "number one" in the country."Have you noticed that every attempt to impeach me has failed? How I will get there don't ask me." .
.

On his recent election as the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party's Governors' Forum, Fayose said, " By the grace of God, we are going to reposition our party. The PDP is only a sleeping giant and when it wakes up, those mocking us now will quake. Charlatans who are one leg in, one leg out and causing confusion in the party would have to decide where to belong." punch.
