We suspended Dana licence in error – Federal Government

Minister of Aviation, Mrs Stella Oduah
The Federal Government on Friday admitted that the suspension of the Operating Licence of Dana Airlines immediately an aircraft belonging to the airline crashed on June 3 was against global aviation practices.

The FG said the best it could have done then was to isolate the particular aircraft involved in the crash and carry out the necessary investigations.

Minister of Aviation, Mrs. Stella Oduah, gave the explanation on a Channels TV breakfast programme. She was reacting to the strong condemnations from the family members of the victims of the crash, after the FG restored the airline’s operating licence on Wednesday.

What is wrong wth this photo?

No words! Lol

Cynthia Osokogu's burial postponed

The burial of Cynthia Osokogu which was scheduled to hold yesterday September 7th in Delta State has been postponed indefinitely, her family announced yesterday.

Pathologists at the Ikeja General Hospital told the family that they needed more time to complete the autopsy, since its result is vital to the trial of her killers. As soon as that is concluded, Cynthia will be laid to rest.

A service of songs was held on Thursday September 6th at St. Mulumba Catholic Church, Jos, for the late 24 year old who was raped and murdered in a hotel in Festac by men she met on a BB Group chat.

2.6 Million Lagos Residents Are Illiterate - Lagos State Government

According to the Special Adviser to Governor Fashola on Education, Mr. Abdul-Fatai Olukoga, only 2.6 million Lagos residents are illiterate. He said a recent survey carried out on the 20,546,999 population in the state revealed that 17,875,889 people are literate while 2,671,110 are illiterate.

He said this on Thursday September 6th during this year's celebration of International Literacy Day in Lagos State.

17.8 million Lagos residents are literate? I don't know how they arrived at this, but it sure sounds good to my ears.

Woman falls from the sky? Oh dear! :-)

Why do people believe such stories? I don't! But some of  you might, so decided to share..:-). According to a LIB reader who took the photo and sent the story in; around 4am this morning, a woman (pictured above) supposedly fell from the sky in front of a house that was doing all night prayer. The house is behind Redeemed Christian Church of God, Eagle Island, Port Harcourt, Rivers State. They said after she fell, she started crying and speaking a language nobody could understand.

Usually with stories like this we hear of mob action. But nobody tried to beat this woman. People were too scared to go near her. Halleluyah for that!

Some of you remember that 11 year old boy that was set ablaze some years back in Surulere, after some people claimed he fell from the sky? Fashola arrested quite a number of people for his murder, but were all later released. Why do some people believe such stories? Do you? Are there really flying witches at night? I'm on the fence on this one :-)

Actor Emeka Ossai & wife expecting twins

What they didn't know at the time was; after waiting for five years, God decided to double their blessing. Emeka and Jumai Ossai are expecting twins. So happy for them!

Dear LIB Readers: My sister's husband wants her to get an abortion

From a LIB reader
Recently My sister's husband asked her to get an abortion and I'm really pissed cause I don't get why he'll even think about it knowing they have just 2 kids(girls) and he's doing great(rich). Would like to know if this is appropriate(right). Why will you ask your wife to get an abortion? And women would you go ahead with it if you are asked?

How can anyone do this to a child?

I really battled with myself whether to put this up or not. I've had the photos for a while but it just didn't seem right at first...but someone around me now said it's information and should be passed on. If some of you find it offensive, then I will take it down.

A few weeks back, some people (one of them a LIB reader who sent in the story and photos) saw this beautiful baby stone dead dumped at the canal before UNILAG maingate, at Abule Oja. They alerted the social workers at the Family Welfare Centre at Birrel Sabo, who came immediately and removed the baby from the canal. The LIB reader took some photos and sent to me...he said seeing that dead baby in that canal was the worst thing he had ever seen...and was in shock for days.

It's the saddest thing to see really. A child! Whoever did this, how dare you? Even if the child died at home or something, why not a proper burial? Incredibly sad. If you have stomach to, then see the beautiful baby after the cut...

Davido and crew walk out during Wizkid's performance at NEA?

That is what US based comedian Foxy P is reporting via his Africa Today Show, where he provides a complete recap of the 2012 Nigerian Entertainment Awards which held this past Sunday September 2 in New York City. His report below
Davido and his HKN crew including Sina Rambo and B-Red came very late to the event and instead of waiting for a lull they just bounded all the way down the steps to the front row where EME stars Banky W, Skales, etc were sitting. They were relatively calm till towards the EME performance that started with XO Senevoe, Rotimi, Skales then Banky and Wizkid. At the time Wizkid came up Davido just got up with his whole crew and they all walked out. It wasn't like they were rushing anywhere because everyone was eventually going to the after party so there was no hurry. I came out after he did and noticed that the entire HKN crew were just standing outside the auditorium doing nothing. It was clear to see they came out because they couldn't stand to watch Wizkid perform.

Dear LIB readers: My wife is a nympho and I'm traveling soon

From a LIB reader...
I'm a Ghanaian man married to a Nigerian woman from the south and in all my years of dating women, I have never come across a woman who loves sex like my wife does. Initially I was flattered by it thinking she found me irresistible, but I've realised it's not about me. She loves sex so much and can't go for more than a week without it. One time I traveled to Abuja for business and after being in the city for five days, my wife she flew in just to have sex and left the following day. Since being married (two years with two kids) we have never really been apart for so long so I have always managed to satisfy her sexual needs.
The reason I'm writing in now is because I'm traveling to Europe soon for business and I will be away for two months. If not for the little children, I would have taken my wife with me. If she can't do without sex for more than a week, how are we going to survive two months apart? I am afraid she will cheat on me.

Toke Makinwa and Maje Ayida's wedding plans still on!
