The designer of the Nigerian Flag Taiwo Akinwuni was hounoured 54 years after he designed our flag! The 77 year old will also receive a lifetime salary (salary equivalent to a Special Adviser to the Presidency), so a healthy sum…54 years too late but at least he was honoured before passed away.

It’s summer! So it’s vacation time for a lot of families! Sadly we are also dealing with a potential Ebola crisis and everyone is doing their best to stay protected against catching the virus, this includes Nollywood star Omotola Jalade Ekeinde who jetted to South Africa with her husband & four kids for their annual summer holiday.

Omotola shared the pictures on her Instagram page and in one of the pictures taken at the Murtala Mohammed Airport in Lagos, the superstar actress can be seen wearing gloves, I could be wrong but Nigeria is a pretty warm country even at it’s coldest gloves aren’t needed so I am guessing she is wearing the gloves to protect herself from potentially catching the Ebola virus especially at the airport where people from all parts of the world gather including people who could be carrying the deadly disease.
