Nigerian Medical Doctor Shot Dead By Her Husband In US.

Tall,elegant and brilliant Nigerian medical doctor Isioma Ebegbodi was murdered in cold blood by her Nigerian husband in Texas state of America on Saturday March 22, 2014.She attended Queen’s College Yaba Lagos and later proceeded to University of Lagos to study Medicine.

She was until her gruesome murder a medical resident physician at Marshfield clinic in Texas.

What really went wrong between a 36 year old wife and her 63 year old husband?Was she suffering in silence until the tragedy happened?So many questions with limited answers.

A 63-year-old Nigerian man was later charged with murder after he confessed to the shooting to death of his wife around 3 a.m on Saturday March 22,2014 in west Harris County, Texas USA.

Martin Ebegbodi went to a neighbour’s house and asked him to call police after getting into a fight over argument and then shot his wife, 36-year-old Isioma Ebegbodi.
The Harris County Sheriff’s Department arrived at the house in the 19700 block of Youpon Leaf Way and arrested Ebegbodi.

Gbemisola Boyede,former schoolmate to Isioma wrote this tribute for her on Facebook

Here I am just as I was breathing the sigh of relief that justice was done in the case of Titi Arowolo murdered by her husband in a grotesque act in their own home here in Nigeria
And watching with bated breath the ongoing trial of Oscar Pistorius who shot dead his girlfriend in his luxury house in Pretoria on Valentine day
I got the rudest shock of my life that a colleague, friend, former classmate in medical school was shot dead at 3am on Saturday in Texas, United States by her own husband! This is too close home for comfort!
Someone tell me what’s going on?
Why are people who professed to love forever and who vowed before God and man pulling the trigger to abruptly cut short the lives they are to protect?
How do we explain this to the innocent children who are going to be deprived for life of parental love and care? Mum is dead but dad isn’t available because he’s serving terms for killing mum?
How? How?? How???

Medical doctor killed

Please if you’re in an abusive relationship riddled with domestic violence, this is the time to get out!
Please stop keeping the front of happiness when you’re dying inside!
The society may not understand, we may even condemn ignorantly
But you owe it a responsibility to those innocent children to be ALIVE!
Please get out NOW to a safe house
I don’t want to ever mourn another victim of spousal or domestic abuse
I can’t begin to describe all the emotions I’m going through
So you can only imagine what her parents, sister and children will be going through!
This is so sad and how many times I’ve wished in the last 48 hours, we can turn back the hand of the clock!
Rest in peace Isioma, Issy Awele Ebegbodi and I pray God comfort your children and family and us all mourning you!
It shall be well!
With deep sadness, We announce the untimely passing of our dear friend and Colleague OGQC (93, “Z” set) Dr Isioma Ebegbodi Nee Unokanjo on Saturday 22nd March,2014 in Texas in the most tragic circumstances.

 

From a confirmed source,Isioma’s friends and colleagues from Medilag(Unilag medical school) and concerned Nigerians are presently collecting funds together towards her three children’s education.

May God grant her family and friends the fortitude to bear this immense loss.

God bless and replenish you as you contribute to this worthy cause.

2015: Jonathan Makes Secret Pact With Fayose, Fani-Kayode, Others To Frustrate Corruption Trials

President Goodluck Jonathan
By Saharareporters, New York

Facing the prospect of a stiff challenge to his reelection in 2015, President Goodluck Jonathan has stepped up plans to neutralize his political foes and make new friendsand allies.

A key part of the president’s plan involves a secret deal to scuttle the ongoing prosecution of several former public officials on corruption charges in exchange for their political support.

An investigation by SaharaReporters discovered that Mr. Jonathan, who faces a major challenge from the opposition, especially the All Progressives Congress, and from within his own party, the Peoples Democratic Party, has started preliminary negotiations with several suspects in corruption cases on the possible obstruction of their prosecution in court.

Already, the president’s strategy has met with some key success for him as well as for suspects being tried by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). One of our sources said one of the early successes of the president’s strategy was the “victory” of former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole, in a case the EFCC filed against him before an Abuja high court.

“Dimeji Bankole walked home free as a result of a deal that was reached with the Presidency,” a source familiar with the case claimed. Mr. Jonathan reportedly courted Mr. Bankole’s support for the 2015 presidential election. In addition, Mr. Jonathan encouraged the former speaker to run for the office of the Governor of his home state, Ogun, under the platform of the PDP.

Many of Mr. Bankole’s key aides have, however, vowed not to support him because, as one of them stated,  “He has told us that he won’t contest.”

President Jonathan’s coddling of corrupt suspects has created some disquiet among some leaders of the EFCC. An official of the highly compromised anti-corruption agency told our correspondent that he could not believe that the president would fraternize with a figure like Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti State. Mr. Fayose, who is facing prosecution for massive money laundering, recently emerged as the PDP’s governorship candidate in Ekiti State.

Before the primary, which has been described as “a sham” by 13 disaffected aspirants, including Mr. Jonathan’s immediate past Minister of Police Affairs, Caleb Olubolade, Mr. Fayose had gone to town to state that the president had endorsed him.

Buruji Kasamu, a suspected drug baron who is wanted in the United States of Americafor drug trafficking, is also backing Mr. Fayose. Mr. Jonathan’s chumminess with Mr. Kasamu, despite his well-known legal troubles in the US, was one of the factors cited by former President Olusegun Obasanjo for withdrawing from PDP activities.

former chairman of the PDP’s Board of Trustees, Mr. Obasanjo insisted that it was too much of a moral burden for him to be in the same political party with a wanted drug baron.

Last week, President Jonathan met with Femi Fani-Kayode, a major opposition critic as well as one of the major former public officials being prosecuted for corruption by the EFCC.

A source close to Mr. Jonathan told SaharaReporters that the president’s inner circle recommended courting Mr. Fani-Kayode after the latter made sharp outbursts against his party, the APC. “The president saw a great opportunity to use Chief Fani-Kayode’sprosecution as a winning tool to woo him,” said a source familiar with the ongoing negotiation between the two men. The source assured that the cases against Mr. Fayose and Mr. Fani-Kayode would end up the same way former Speaker Bankole’s did.

Our source added that some members of the president’s camp were opposed to the strategy of offering deals to corrupt politicians in order to curry their support. “Some of us have cautioned that he [President Jonathan] doesn’t need to do this. He should not be desperate because the opposition is already in disarray. But some hawks insisted that he has to toe the line of wooing corrupt politicians.”

The source stated that the cases against Mr. Fani-Kayode and Mr. Fayose would soon be dismissed, with the Presidency quietly instructing the EFCC not to appeal the verdicts.

“We can win election without these people, but I still don’t know why the President continues to listen to people who advise him to seek alliances with every moneylaundering suspect,” said a source.

President Jonathan has demonstrated a bold support for corruption and for corrupt officials. He has retained Petroleum Minister Diezani Alison-Madueke on his cabinet despite her involvement in several corruption scandals. He also pardoned former Governor Diepreye S.P. Alamieyeseigha from his home state of Bayelsa. The former governor was arrested in London for money laundering, and was subsequently convicted for corruption in Nigeria and served a short jail term. Mr. Jonathan also seems reluctant to fund any serious anti-corruption effort. A top official of the EFCC recently stated that the commission was broke.

Suspected Boko Haram insurgents on Tuesday abducted no fewer than 100 girls at the Senior Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, following a violent attack in the town.

But the BBC quoted parents to have told it’s Hausa service that at least 200 girls were abducted.school girls

Eyewitnesses said the girls who were in school preparing for their Senior Secondary School CertificateExamination were abducted at about 3.00am.

Mr Joseph Walama, a resident, said the attackers numbering about 50, stormed the town in a convoy ofToyota Hilux vehicles before unleashing terror on residents.

“They arrived in the town at about 10.00pm in a convoy of no fewer than seven Hilux vehicles and took controlof the town and set fire on residential and public buildings,” Walama said.

He said some of the attackers engaged in mass looting of food items, while others harassed residents at will.

“Then suddenly they headed for the Senior Secondary School, Chibok, which is a WAEC examination centre.

“Some of the teachers and students took to their heels on sighting them, but they eventually abducted those who remained in the hostel.

“They packed food items and the students into an abandoned lorry before heading for the Sambisa forest,” he said.

The Borno Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Lawal Tanko, confirmed the attack, but said he did not have details of the incident.

Kano Rally: Jonathan attacks Kwakwanso, accuses governor of maladministration.

-Premium Times 

Mr. Jonathan said the Kano government under Mr. Kwakwanso has received over N255 billion as local government funds since 2011.

President Goodluck Jonathan, Tuesday, accused the Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwakwanso, of improper use of the state’s local government funds since assuming office.

The president made the accusation during the rally to officially welcome Ibrahim Shekarau, a former Kano governor, to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Mr. Shekarau decamped to the PDP from the All Progressives Congress, APC, in January after the incumbent joined the latter from the PDP late last year.

Speaking at the rally, Mr. Jonathan said the Kano government under Mr. Kwakwanso has received over N255 billion as local government funds since 2011. He asked the 44 council chairmen in Kano to challenge the governor on what he has done with the funds.

The president also said that contrary to Kano governor’s claim, Mr. Kwakwanso did not support him in the 2011 presidential primaries of the PDP.

The governor recently said he regretted ever supporting the president during the primaries and for the 2011 elections. He said he would not receive the president when he arrived Kano because of Mr. Jonathan’s poor performance as president.

In his reaction at the rally, Mr. Jonathan said Mr. Kwakwanso did not vote for him at the PDP presidential primaries.

He said when it became clear to everybody that Mr. Jonathan would win the primaries, held at the Eagles Square, Abuja, Mr. Kwankwaso left the venue midwayto the elections.

“How can he therefore say he elected me,” Mr. Jonathan said.

The president also accused Mr. Kwakwanso of refusing to release money provided for Kano delegates’ refreshment.

Mr. Jonathan, who did not make any reference to 2011 general elections, said that Mr. Kwankwaso did not also give Kano PDP delegates monies provided for them as allowance to facilitate their movement to the venue of the primaries.

While speaking on the federal government’s plan for Kano, Mr. Jonathan said the federal government was committed to agriculture and that groundnut pyramids would soon return to the state.

In his speech, Mr. Shekarau called on President Jonathan to do something about the lingering poverty in the state.

He urged him to help the people of the state by revamping the irrigation and Fadama farming, saying, this would create employment opportunities to the residents

Mr. Shekarau assured the president that if he does this, PDP would get massive votes from residents of the state in 2015.

WAEC RESULTS : EX-GOVERNOR PETER OBI AND OTHERS.

Obi, ex governor Anambra State

Obi, ex governor Anambra State

With the recent released of 2013 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) by West African Examination Council (WAEC),Anambra State former Governor,Mr.Peter Obi stole the show.Anambra State topped other states and produced the best students with good results and grades.This silent achievement bowed out of Anambra State Government House humbled and fulfilled.His tireless and unprecedented efforts in rewriting the educational history in the land of the Ikemba shocked me.

Surprisingly,states in the Niger Delta region made an impressive records.States like Rivers,Delta,Bayelsa and Cross River with lean resources and allocation from the federal treasury,less sycophants,internet attack dogs,anthem of ‘free and compulsory’ education from Primary School to Secondary School on AIT,Channel TV,NTA,AKBC Radio and Television,were busy restructuring,revamping and revolutionizing their education sector without ‘noise’ and self-praise.

Ex-Gov.Peter Obi provided over 750 buses to schools in Anambra State,generators,sickbays,laboratory equipments,internet facilities and over 25,000 computers etc without granting CNN interviews and no diaspora assessment.The act reminded me of a literature book I read in my Secondary School days “This is our chance” by James Ene Henshew.Bambulu,one of the characters said these “this is the child of my brain,the product of my endeavour,and the materialization of my inventive genius.It is an anti snake bite vaccine.Western science has not succeeded in producing anything so potent.But I Bambulu,have,without laboratories,without help,produced this medicine from herbs of this village.”Peter Obi knew about service is all about and he worked assiduously to its implementation.

The breakdown of the results show that 12 states in Nigeria recorded percentage that were above national average.The states are
1.Anambra 67.85%
2.Abia 65.17%
3.Rivers 58.56%
4.Lagos 56.03%
5.Cross River 53.34%
6.Bayelsa 51.66%
7.Enugu 50.22%
8.Delta 46.49%
9.Imo 46.03%
10.Abuja 43.9%
11.Ogun 39.92
12.Kaduna 39.47%

Where is my state-Akwa Ibom?With the free and compulsory education well orchestrated by paid agents.what is our position and percentage?

Methinks performance has no relationship with noise-making,but the output adds credibility and bring out the needed positive outcome.It is not late for appraisal,it is not late for a rethink,it is not late to make the free and compulsory education to be qualitative and it is not even late for the authorities to stop unnecessary media hype.

The Most Loving Thing You Can Say to Your Partner.

Communicate better and strengthen your bond.

The worst thing you can do for your partner and your relationship is believe that you know how to make intimate unions work.

Love exceptional

Love exceptional

In reality, there’s no way that any of us could know. Biology, which takes many, many generations to change, has not prepared us for love’s special challenges in our rapidly changing culture. Tradition is hopelessly outdated – the old socialized roles and norms have broken down almost completely – and pop-psychology gives little more than platitudes or oversimplified and contradictory advice.

But don’t despair: The human brain is amazingly adaptive and capable of learning. The only thing that blocks us from being able to learn how to love better is the ego; we simply don’t want to admit that we don’t know how to do it right. To be relieved of the awful burden of ego, repeat the following out loud, three times: I don’t know what the hell I’m doing when it comes to making a modern intimate relationship work!

Once relieved of the burden of defending our egotistical preconceptions and prejudices about how relationships should be – and how our partners should see themselves and the world – we’re free to apply our intelligence and creativity to learning how to love the unique persons we come to love. The most loving thing you can say to your partner is:

Teach me how to love you, and I will teach you how to love me.

Learning how to love your partner, while teaching your partner how to love you, will surpass any kind of marriage counseling or self-helpmaterials you might come across. Therapists and authors are better at telling you what doesn’t work in relationships than they are at illuminating what will work for you and your partner. They can tell you what works for them and their partners (although they are notorious for suffering highdivorce rates), but that can do more harm than good for you and your partner, if held as a standard of love that you must contort yourselves to attain.

Make It Easy for Your Partner to Love You

While there’s no question that modern intimate relationships require work and negotiation to be successful, the last thing we want to do is make it hard for our partners to love us. In fact, we want to make it as easy as possible. The following little exercise can help.

Ask your partner: What can I do to make you feel loved?

Write down your partner’s response (ex.: Surprise me now and then with flowers.)

Assuming that your partner responds with something you can do, say: This will make it easier for me to do what will make you feel loved. (ex.: Tell me you are pleased with the flowers when I bring them.)

And tell your partner: I feel loved when you … (ex.: … greet me when I come home.) I will make it easier for you to do this by … (ex.: … showing appreciation when you do it and doing the same for you). Is there something else I can do to make it easier for you?

And then write your partner’s response.

Communicating with your partner as in the above exercises will go a long way toward establishing a safe and satisfying intimate relationship. Love looks a little different with each couple. How to do it well is a lesson you must teach other.

WOMEN: THE UNTOLD TRUTH

-Festus Bassey

have you noticed?women, the untold truth

1. If you suck one nipple, the women herself offers the other one. And that was the origin of “buy one get one free”!

2. everything on a woman‘s upper body starts with a “B”. Blouse, Bra, Bikini, Boobs & lower body with a “P” Peticoat, panties, pussy…No wonder men suffer from high B P!

3. Before sex, you help each other get naked. After sex, you dress only yourself. Moral: In life no one helps you once you’re screwed.

4. Success is like pregnancy. Everybody congratulates you but nobody knows how many times you got screwed to achieve it.

5. What is the difference between frustration and satisfaction? What the Fuck! and What a Fuck!

6. 3 people having sex is a threesome, 2 is a twosome. So next time someone calls you ‘HANDSOME’, don’t take it as a compliment!

7. Life is like a dick, sometimes it becomes hard for no reason.

8. Practical thought: A husband is supposed to make his wife’s panties wet, not her eyes. A wife is supposed to make her husband’s dick hard, not his life..!

Now that I’ve educated. you, go ahead and educate someone else.
When a lady is pregnant,

all her friends touch her stomach ad say “Congrats!”.

But none of them come and touch the man’s Penis and say “Well done!”.

Moral: Hard work is never appreciated: Only result matters..
