See the N330million Exotic Cars Saraki Just Bought (Photos)

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has taken delivery of new exotic cars purchased by the National Assembly management for his official use, despite the widespread criticisms against such lavish spending at a time of national economic crisis.

PREMIUM TIMES had exclusively reported that the Nigerian legislative body proposed to splash about N4.7 billion on at least 400 vehicles for leaders and members of the Senate and House of Representatives.

Among the proposed vehicles were 10 top-of-the-range cars for Mr. Saraki and his official convoy.

Mr. Buhari said he had rejected a proposal for new vehicles to be purchased for him as part of 2016
budget expenditure.
“I turned down a N400 million bill for cars for the presidency, because the vehicles I am using are good enough for the next 10 years,” the president said during his first media chat.
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo also wrote members of the National Assembly asking them to jettison the plan to buy official vehicles.

But the National Assembly management ignored such concerns and, finalised procurement processes for the vehicles, and indeed took delivery of them for Mr. Saraki.

At least four of the 10 vehicles meant for Mr. Saraki have already been delivered by Lanre Shittu motors and the lawmaker has since put them to use. The four cars delivered yet, and confirmed by the paper, are three Toyota Prado SUVs and one Mercedes Benz S500.

PREMIUM TIMES also confirmed that the procurement processes for the purchase of 120 Toyota Land Cruisers for the remaining 119 Senators were also concluded last December.

An estimated N4.7billion would have been spent by the time the acquisition of cars for Mr. Saraki and his 108 colleagues are completed.

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu

Former governor of Lagos state, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has been conferred with an honorary doctorate degree at the Combined Convocation of the University of Abuja (UniAbuja).

NAN reports that former Vice-President, Dr Alex Ekwueme, former Chief Justices of Nigeria, Justice Idris Kutigi and Maryam Aloma Mukhtar, were also conferred with honorary doctorate degrees.

A total 25,878 students were awarded various degrees at the 15th to 20th combined convocation of
the institution on Saturday.

Ekwueme was said to be unavoidably absent as he was represented by his daughter, Mrs Chidi Onyemelukwe.

In his acceptance speech on behalf of the other recipients of honorary degrees, Tinubu thanked the institution’s authority for deeming them worthy of the award. He said that UniAbuja symbolised national unity and epitomised a collective desire to build a strong nation.

“The institution must realise its important position in the educational salvation of our youth and the rejuvenation of our nation.

“I urge a continuous commitment to quality and excellence.
“The university, numbered among the new generation universities, must strive in the tradition of groundbreaking scholarship and research.

“In spite of the challenges of infrastructure and funding, the university must not compromise its academic standard,” he said.

The highlight of the event was the investiture of Alhaji Shehu Idris, the Emir of Zazzau, as the Chancellor of the institution.

Robert Mugabe's $1million-dollar 92nd Birthday Party Sparks Criticism in Zimbabwe



President Robert Mugabe

Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe days ago marked his 92nd birthday at a $1.1 million party organised by his supporters.

This party has however drawn criticism from his opponents who said the celebrations in the drought-stricken country was an affront to his countrymen.

Mr Mugabe, Africa's oldest leader, turned 92 on February 21 and thousands of his party supporters gathered to pay tribute to the country's only leader since independence from Britain in 1980. He has shown no intention of stepping down.

Mr Mugabe, who was accompanied by his wife, Grace, and their children, released 92 balloons and
sat listening to poetry readings, songs and chants by supporters hailing him as an African icon and a visionary.

Robert Mugabe's $1million-dollar 92nd Birthday Party Sparks Criticism in Zimbabwe

A giant cake made to look like the ancient ruins for which Zimbabwe is named was set out in a nearby marquee. School children, foreign diplomats, government ministers and security chiefs were also present.

Pupurai Togarepi, ZANU-PF's youth leader said 50,000 people were expected to attend and defended spending $1.1 million on the birthday celebrations.

"Money is not the issue here. You cannot put a price on the contribution of President Mugabe to the history and development of this nation. All these things are worth more than money," Mr Togarepi told Reuters.

The opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) however called the celebrations "obscene". They said:
"The obscenity of this particular exercise is that he throws this bash not just based on public funds... but he does it in one of the worst-affected drought-stricken parts of the country.

ZANU-PF should be utterly ashamed of hosting an expensive birthday bash for their aging ruler whilst more than 90 per cent of Zimbabweans are wallowing in grinding poverty caused by decades of Robert Mugabe's misrule and mismanagement of the economy.

The money that is being budgeted for this ill-conceived birthday bash should actually be used to import maize to avert the impending starvation in Masvingo province and other parts of the country."

Critics blame Mr Mugabe for many of the problems facing the country.

Nicki Minaj & Meek Mill are Officially Over

Nicki Minaj & Meek Mill are Officially Over

Rapper Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj

Rapper Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj are officially over and this time it's for real, according to MediaTakeOut though.

They are reporting that Nicki has hired a moving truck and moved all of Meek's clothes out of their Los Angeles home and is having it shipped to Philly. Their relationship is reportedly at an all time low.

According to a snitch, Meek got caught being sloppy with it. A Philadelphia stripper contacted Nicki Minaj claiming to have been sleeping with Meek. And that was all Nicki could handle.

TMZ has confirmed that Nicki and Meek are breaking up. According to TMZ, the couple recently
had a huge fight over the Philly rapper’s impending house arrest. Their sources state the dust up was caused because Mill wants Minaj to stay with him while he serves out his 90 day in-home stint.

But Nicki isn’t willing to just sit around for a full three months. According to the report, this fight was bigger than any of the couple’s past squabbles.

I Paid N480,000 to Arrange Special Room for My Husband in Prison – Wife of kidnap kingpin

I Paid N480,000 to Arrange Special Room for My Husband in Prison – Wife of kidnap kingpin

The Police have nabbed the wife of a kidnap gang leader, Mr Prosper Nengi David, who coordinates the activities of his gang from the Port Harcourt prison.

A member of the gang, Mr Ifanyi Nwanfo, who spoke while in the custody of the Anti-Kidnap Unit of the Police, had said that David was in detention at the Port Harcourt prisons and coordinated the activities of the group from the prison with a phone.

According to Nwanfo, the group always gave David’s share of the ransom to his wife at a spot on Aboloma road.

Meantime, David’s wife, Clara, who was arrested by the anti-kidnap unit, told newsmen yesterday
before the Officer In-charge of the Police Anti-Kidnap Unit, in Port Harcourt, that she collected money from a member of the gang at separate times, pleading that she did not know her husband was a kidnapper.

She said she only knew her husband to be an illegal oil bunkerer. She said the man was yet to perform all the marriage rites on her but they had a son and had lived together as husband and wife since 2011.

According to her, the husband, Mr David asked her to give N480,000 to a warder so they could arrange a private room for him and some other inmates in the prison custody. She said she gave a total of N480,000 to the warder in three installments. Her words:

“My name is Clara Collins, I sell wrapper. I am 26 years. They arrested me, saying I collect my husband’s share of ransom paid by kidnappers. I did not know my husband, Prosper Nengi David is a kidnapper.

When they detained my husband last October, one of his friends brought N950, 000 to me as support since my husband was in detention. Later, my husband sent another money to me and told the person who sent it to me that it was for me to give a lawyer that was seeking his release. This time, they gave me N1.5 million naira.

Then, I got one million naira again.

The state Police Commissioner, Mr  Musa Kimo said between January and February  four cultists were shot dead by his men, adding that a total of 46 kidnappers were arrested. He said 18 AK47,  3 Pump actions, 3 English pistol, 9 magazines, 124 cartridges were among items recovered from criminals in January.

 While assuring that there will be no hiding place for hoodlums in the state the state Police chief said 11 vehicles were also recovered from armed robbers  between January and now.

Facebook spying on users with Artificial Intelligence

Facebook spying on users with Artificial Intelligence

Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook users may not probably have realised yet, but the social media platform has started using artificial intelligence on its users.

The social network is able to recognise patterns in how you interact with things and deliver content in response. If you often “like” updates from a certain person, Facebook might suggest different (sometimes weird) ways for you to see more from that person.

That much was put in perspective by Mark Zuckerberg during a town hall in Berlin, Germany, Thursday.

“So much of what you do on Facebook — you open up your app, you open up your News Feed, and there are thousands of things that are going on in your world, and we need to figure out what’s interesting,” Zuckerberg said. “That’s an AI problem.”

Zuckerberg was joined by Yann LeCun, Facebook’s head of AI research. The session was broadcast live via the Facebook app, with over 100,000 people watching at any given moment.

The two characterised Facebook’s current AI capabilities as basic pattern recognition, or “supervised learning.” What that means, basically, is that Facebook is good at understanding how you use the News Feed and at automatically making suggestions for you — surfacing an article it thinks you’ll find interesting, for example — but that’s all happening in a closed environment. That AI technology isn’t able to learn how to do anything other than surface material on Facebook.

This kind of AI has been around for a while. IBM’s Deep Blue computer was able to get good enough at chess to defeat champion Garry Kasparov in 1997. But Deep Blue couldn’t then apply any of its “learning” to checkers.

That said, modern technology is evolving rapidly. Pattern recognition, as Zuckerberg and LeCun pointed out Thursday, is complex enough now for driverless cars to exist, or for tech to recognize what certain ailments look like.

“[AI can] make every doctor as good as the best doctor in the world at diagnosing skin cancer,” Zuckerberg said.
“Lives are going to be saved by AI,” LeCun said.
While Facebook’s algorithm might seem a bit inconsequential compared to a cancer-detecting robot, Zuckerberg said his company is in a key position to further AI research in general.

“You have a lot of the smartest people in academic environments, but a lot of the infrastructure is in corporate environments,” Zuckerberg said, explaining that he wants to leverage the resources at Facebook to create more advanced AI.

Anglican Church Forces Bride to Wear Yellow Wedding Gown B'cos She is 2 Weeks Pregnant (Photo)

Anglican Church Forces Bride to Wear Yellow Wedding Gown B'cos She is 2 Weeks Pregnant (Photo)

Anglican Church has been shamelessly promoting discrimination against women and i CAN NO LONGER KEEP QUITE. This rubbish going on in the Anglican church has to stop.

Any form of gender bias is ungodly. This church mandate that couple who want to get married must go for pregnancy test 2 weeks before wedding and if the woman is found to be even a day pregnant then she will be humiliated while the husband who got her pregnant will go scoot free.


I am elated when my friend invited me to her wedding which was supposed to hold at All saints cathedral Onitsha. I was billed to serve as one of her train. Imagine my shock when I got there 3 days to the wedding day only to see my friend crying herself to bits. She has lost a lot of weight and would not eat or be consoled.

 When I inquired to know what was eating her up. She told me she was pregnant and I was like  she should be celebrating after all her wedding was in 2 days time while her traditional wedding was done almost 2 months back. That was when she spilled the beans. She told me that the Church said that she would wear black wedding gown because she was not supposed to get pregnant before the wedding day. I was bemused.

 Worse is that they will not even inform you of this stupid law until you must have paid the wedding fee of N30,000. At that point, They will only have you at their mercy because its already late for you to change venue and your invitation cards may have been all sent out.

The part that worries me greatly is that the women are the target of this new discriminatory law. This is the 21st century for crying out loud. Why would the bride alone be punished for something that bothe She and the groom did? Why would the groom be allowed to adorned his full tuxedo while the bride is forced into some hideous clothing.

Yes, No sex before marriage is good but honestly it is outdated to not understand your partners sexuality before marriage. Worse is that some impotent people hide under the guise of born again to deceive other innocent people into marriages. Now when you finally end up with a barren or impotent partner, the same church will tell you that you must never divorce. Hell no.

This lunacy must stop. The Anglican Communion must clean up its mess and stop attacking women.

Revealed: Why Window Shades have to be Kept Open during Takeoff and Landing

Revealed: Why Window Shades have to be Kept Open during Takeoff and Landing

Passengers are always asked by cabin crew to raise their blinds at the start and end of every flight. If you've ever wondered why, we can now reveal the answer.

Passengers are asked to take this step so that cabin crew members can look out of the windows to assess which side of the aircraft is safest to disembark from in case of an emergency .

Aviation safety officer Saran Udayakumar explained on question-and-answer website Quora that the window shade opening is "a part of a long process to prepare the cabin for sudden unexpected
emergencies."

The opening of the shades, along with the folding up of tables and putting seats in upright positions helps the cabin crew evacuate all passengers - a procedure for which they only have 90 seconds in total.

In case of sudden emergencies, "every second counts," Udayakumar wrote. "Therefore if shades are open, crew can easily see outside conditions to help them in planning the evacuation (which doors to use for evacuation etc.)"
