President Jonathan greets Nigerians in the New Year, promises a better 2014

Dear Compatriots,

I greet and felicitate with you all as we enter the year 2014 which promises to be a momentous one for our country for several reasons, including the fact that it is also the year of our great nation’s centenary celebrations. I join you all in giving thanks to God Almighty for guiding us and our beloved nation safely through all the challenges of the outgoing year to the beginning of 2014.

Exactly 100 years ago today, on January 1, 1914, the British Colonial authorities amalgamated what was then the separate Protectorates of Southern Nigeria and Northern Nigeria, giving birth to the single geopolitical entity known as Nigeria.  For us therefore, today is not just the beginning of a new year, but the end of a century of national existence and the beginning of another. It is a moment for sober reflection and for pride in all that is great about Nigeria.

Nigerians condemn Chris Okotie for wasting N130m on two exotic cars

Okotie & ex wife, Stephanie
Several angry and disappointed Nigerians who recently bared their minds to us on the conditions of anonymity have openly condemned flamboyant and controversial man of God, Rev. Chris Okotie for wasting the sum of N130 million on a Rolls Royce Phantom (N80m) and 2014 Range Rover Autobiography (N30m).
The serial presidential losers bought both wonder-on-wheels to celebrate his 27 years as a pastor and 30 years as a born again Christian.
These angry Nigerians wondered why Okotie, whose second marriage recently crashed, would spend such a huge amount on two cars, when millions of Nigerians are hungry and finding it difficult to eat just a meal in a day.
 "He's already acting like those occupying Aso Rock and other government houses, yet he has not won any election. With this kind of open love for material acquisition, it means Okotie would do worse than those in Aso Rock, if he gets into office," asserted one of the disappointed Nigerians.
Another, while reacting, said there was no difference between the ex pop star and typical Nigerian politicians.
