Obasanjo Urges Wealthy Citizens to Help the Poor

A former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has called on rich and wealthy Nigerians to come to the aid of the hopeless and the less-privileged members of the society.

Obasanjo made this call at the carol service organised by him in the Chapel of Christ The Glorious King, located inside the premises of Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, capital of Ogun State, on Tuesday night.

He said there were many poor people in the society.

He said, “I want to appeal to the rich in the society to always remember the less-privileged in the society. There are many children without hope out there. We should come to their aid. There are boys and girls in our communities with such problem.”

Obasanjo cited an example of a gospel musical group from Ibadan, made up of orphans, who entertained guests at the event.

He said, “They have been part of us here and I want to thank the governor for promising to assist them after I had told him about their plight. For us with hope, we should help t…

He made the prediction at the governor’s office in Ado-Ekiti while praying for Governor Ayodele Fayose and the people of the state.

Obama personal chef to hang up apron after 6 years

Political advisers, chiefs of staff, press secretaries and national security advisers have come and gone in the nearly six years Barack Obama has been president. Now, the White House chef is also waving goodbye.

Sam Kass has been a fixture at the executive mansion, serving up nutrition policy as well as meals for Obama, his wife, Michelle, and daughters Malia and Sasha. He was not only their personal chef but also senior adviser for nutrition policy, giving him a seat at the table where administration officials hashed out everything from updated food labels to new requirements for healthier school lunches.

Kass, a newlywed, is leaving the White House at the end of the month, but don't ask him what the Obamas like or don't like to eat. "Top secret," he said.

"I love this family and believe in everything the president and first lady are doing and this has been the greatest job of my life and I assume will be the greatest job of my life," the 34-year-old sai…

The picture above is that of a 18 year old young man who was shot dead on Dec. 23rd by a police officer at a gas station not far from where Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri. But the police say this is a totally different case because Antonio Martin had a gun and pointed it at 34yr old unnamed officer, who pulled out his own gun and shot three times, killing Antonio.

Antonio pictured above pointing a gun at the police officer as the officer responded to a call of a theft in the area. The police officer fired three shots, one hitting the teen. Antonio, who didn't fire his weapon, was pronounced dead at the scene by responding EMS officers.

Dangote Loses $7.8 billion as Naira, Stocks plunge

According to a report by Forbes, Dangote, Tony Elumelu and Jim Ovia lost a lot of money as a result of the devaluation of Naira. The Forbes report by Mfonobong Nsehe below...

A few weeks ago, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, announced a nearly 10% devaluation of the Naira, Nigeria’s currency, after admitting that a plunge in world oil prices and dwindling dollar reserves were making it difficult to defend the value of the currency. The Naira is now trading at N187 to $1, compared to N165 in November. In dollar terms, the devaluation has knocked more than $40 billion off the value of Nigeria’s economy.

Dangote is the biggest loser among Nigeria’s richest people as the Naira’s slump, coupled with falling stock prices, has erased more than $7.8b of his fortune since Feb, when Forbes locked in the values for its annual ranking of the World’s Billionaires.

Dangote was worth $25 billion at the time; as of market close on Tuesday, he’s worth $17.2 billion. More …
