Terry donated kids’ food stuffs, biscuits, snacks, drinks and others, all in large quantities.

Well done Terry G. More pictures when you continue...

D'Banj interviews president Goodluck Jonathan

D'Banj interviewed President Goodluck Jonathan today. The interview will air on Silverbird TV at 8:30pm today 17th March, 2011. Watch out for it.

How is it that the President of the Federal Republic doesn't want to be interviewed by journalists but doesn't mind sitting down for an entertainer? What exactly is D'banj going to ask him? He will probably kiss-ass throughout the interview (D'banj is one of the many Naija entertainers campaigning for the president). Now a Chude Jideonwo or a Tolu Ogunlesi, or the guys from 'What About Us' would have done a better job.
I don't know what to make of PDP anymore.

A good number of them even bring their male friends into the camp. It’s a serious development that has been detrimental to the team’s growth and performance.” - Super Falcons’ Coach, Eucharia Uche made this statement at the seminar on Women Football in Nigeria: Challenges and Prospects.

Minimum wage in Nigeria now N18, 000

"As I have stated on this page, I am committed to ensuring social justice and restoring the dignity of labour in Nigeria which is why I have signed into law the Minimum Wage Act which mandates every employer of labour to pay at least N18,000 per month to the least paid staff. We have to motivate to create wealth. We may have much or little but what little we have, must be shared more equitably." GEJ on FB

That's a little above $100 dollars a month. Not much, but better than 9k.

'Ije' Missing from 2011 AMAA Nomination list

Chineze Anyaene
Quite a number of people were surprised that the block buster movie 'Ije' featuring Omotola and Genevieve didn't make the African Movie Academy Awards nomination list. Anchor Baby, and the recently released movies, A Private Storm and Mirror Boy were nominated, so why not Ije?

When the producer of the movie, Chineze Anyaene, was approached by reporters to find out what happened, she allegedly said "Professionally I didn't enter 'Ije' for AMAA for reasons best known to me."

Errm, so one has to enter a movie before it's nominated? #confused.

Quote of the day!

"When I began this journey seeking your votes I committed myself to promising less and delivering more. I promised to reduce pressure on roads by expanding on aviation and rail infrastructure and to this end I commissioned 25 new rail coaches following which my entourage and I journeyed by rail from Lagos to Abeokuta. When I promise I will deliver." GEJ

25 new rail coaches, only for us? Wow, that's fantastic! Now can you join the debate so we can ask you questions about it? Thank you sir!

He was doing the right thing based on the information he had during his own time. At a point I hated him. But he was trying to keep me from going the wrong way." Singer, J Martins to a Vanguard reporter.
