Heartbreaking Moment Chibok Moms Saw Their Abducted Daughters In Proof of Life Video



Yesterday a video surfaced showing about 15 of the Chibok schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram militants two years ago. The video which was obtained by CNN provides proof of life by the abductors of the girls, in their negotiations with the Federal Government.

It was shown by the CNN correspondent to 3 mothers, whose daughters were among over 200 kidnapped in 2014. They were able to identify all 15 girls in the video, but this was followed by heartbreaking tears from one of the mothers – Rifkatu Ayuba when she realized her daughter was not in the video.

That moment will move even the most hardened person to tears.

Information Minister Lai Mohammed confirms that they have received the video & are still reviewing it. He also confirms that the Buhari government is negotiating with the Boko Haram terror group for the release of the girls.

Twitter Nigeria Has A Lot To Say About Bayelsa State Owing Workers 5 Months Salary



Punch Nigeria is reporting that government workers in Bayelsa state have resulted to begging as they have not been paid up to 5 months salary by the state government.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that with unpaid wages workers are unable to take care of themselves and their families, most can’t even afford to  transport themselves to work.

A manager at government owned Izon Ibe Community Bank told the publication,

I work in the state-owned micro-finance bank, but since November, I have not been paid. I can’t go to work because I need to look for something to do to feed my family. It has been very tough. Surviving in Bayelsa State has become so difficult. I wonder why an oil-producing state like Bayelsa cannot pay salaries. We learnt that states like Ebonyi and Taraba, with one of the least allocations, still pay salaries. But here, we are working in an oil-producing state without salaries.”

Interestingly the Governor – Seriake Dickson last year promised to pay salaries owed but he didn’t & he has been very quiet about the issue.

Since the news hit, Twitter Nigeria has been buzzing about the sad situation – non stop, see what they had to say after the ju


Reno Omokiri Calls Out Buhari For Using Presidential Jet To Fly To China. 



When GEJ was flying around the world with the presidential jet I wonder why Reno Omokri who until May 29, 2015 was his Special Assistant on New Media, didn’t say anything but when the current president Muhammadu Buhari uses the same jet to he has a whole lot to say.

This morning the author who now spends a lot of his time sharing nuggets of wisdom on Twitter wrote this,

I mean no one is saying Buhari doesn’t travel a lot but your former boss used the same jet and you didn’t say s**t, so you are in no position to criticize the use of the same jet now.

Abi na you wan use am?
