Chibok234: I Know Where The Girls Are - Senator Ahmed Zanna

Senator Ahmed Zanna

Nigerian lawmaker representing Borno North in the Upper Chamber, Senator Ahmed Zanna, has confirmed he knows the location of the abducted girls. 

Pained that the government allegedly refuse to listen to him, he further stated to CNN that he won’t divulge the whereabouts of the girls and the dreaded Islamist group. 

The senator made this declaration Monday night on CNN when he was being interviewed via a telephone call by Isha Sesay. 

When the lawmaker was asked about what he felt about the latest video released on Monday by the Boko Haram terror group showing some of the abducted school girls, the senator said he experienced mixed feelings when he saw the video and he was happy to know they are still alive. 

When asked where he thinks the insurgents might be keeping the girls, the senator replied, “I won’t tell where they are being kept again because I have told the Federal Government where they are likely being kept before the video was released. Now that I saw the video, the vegetation in the clip confirmed what I have told them earlier,” 

“If they want to know where they are being kept, then the government should remember what I told them before. What I can tell you is that the girls are no longer here in Chibok.” 

The lawmaker also stated that it would be difficult for Nigeria to get back all the girls abducted by the insurgents, saying the girls have not only been split by their abductors but ferried through Lake Chad to neighbouring countries among which he said were Chad, Niger and Cameroon. 

The senator who blamed the military for failure to rescue the girls before the development given that they got all immediate information about the movement of the insurgents from him, also suggested that he receives updates on the movement of the girls. 

He said, “I have been constantly in touch with the security agencies, telling them the developments, the movement of the girls from one place to the other and then the splitting of the girls and eventually the marriage of these girls by the insurgents. What bothers me most is that whenever I informed them where these girls were, after two to three days, they will be moved from that place to another and still, I will go back and inform them that see, this is what is happening. 

“I lost hope two days ago when I found out that some of them were moved to Chad and Cameroon. Actually, some of them move through the Mandara Mountain that is in Gwoza and some of them are just a stone throw from their barracks, even now as I am talking to you, some of them are in Kolofata, which is in Cameroon but about 15 kilometres or even less to the borders.” 


The Good side of Patience Jonathan we never talk about:
She possesses traits of The Best Kind Of Wife Any Man Can Pray for Despite Her Grammatical Expression!!!
When I see the way people have been ridiculing Patience Jonathan, the First Lady Of Nigeria, I only pity the future of most of our youths of today especially the Men. Many have been using words like:
"There is God ooo!!"
"Na only you Waka Come"!!
"All the Blood we are Sharing"!!!
Interestingly, That is
*The Woman who stood by GEJ when he was living with all his brothers in a one room apartment.
*That is the woman who took GEJ to her Uncle in Zoology Dept. of Uniport in order to help him secure admission which he did.
*That is the Woman that stood by GEJ when he had no food to eat and would bring Food stuffs for
him in school every weekend.
*That is the Woman who used her money from her business to help GEJ to pay for handouts and textbooks when he was an Undergraduate.
*That is the woman who stood by GEJ despite him having extra-marital affairs.
*That is the Woman who stood by GEJ till he became a Lecturer, to Deputy Governor, to Governor, to Vice President, and then becoming the President of Nigeria. Hmmm...
So to all of you mocking her, here are my Questions for you all:
*How many of you ladies here can do this for the Love of a Man?
*How many of you Guys can boast that your girl can stand by you thru thick and thin, like Patience did?
Many of you have left your boyfriends because he doesn't have Money for now (I'm talking from experience...
So No Matter how bad her English may sound (need I remind you that English language was her L5, behind Okrika-Ijaw, Igbo, Pidgin and Ogbia-Ijaw(her hubby's dialect) in the pecking order of languages she speaks?) She is the Best kind of wife you can pray for in life!!

8 Reasons Why You are Still Unemployed

1.    You didn't ask any questions
Prepare questions the night before the interview. This is your chance to see if you are right for the job, but also shows the employer you are interested in the role. Aim to ask questions on the job role itself ? what are the main objectives of the role? Why has the role become available? How does this role fit within the team structure in your company? Keep the questions professional.

2.    You asked about salary and holiday
You should never ask about the pay or holiday in your interview! This is something that is usually discussed if you have been offered the job. The employer may bring it up in the interview which is ok, but don't be the one to mention it first! It looks totally unprofessional.

3.    You're unprepared
Always make sure you spend the night before the interview researching the company. Who are their clients? What achievements have they made in the past year? An interviewer will not be impressed if they feel you don't know much about their company as it will seem you aren't really bothered about working for them.
4.    You aren't dressed well
There's the saying, "dress for the job you want", take this on board! If you're going for an interview at a corporate firm in the city, wear your smartest attire. Guys, wear a dark suit and tie, and girls, smart trousers with a blouse or a pencil skirt and shirt will do. If you want to wear a dress, make sure it is smart enough for the office and not too short! However, if you're applying for something in retail or media, you could get away with something a bit more casual, but that doesn't mean you can wear jeans! You should look personable but professional.

5.    You arrived late
The worst mistake you can make is to arrive to the interview late. Allow plenty of time to get to the interview, even if it's just a 20 minute car journey. You can't predict how bad traffic will be!

6.    You didn't follow up the interview correctly
When you've walked out that interview room, don't think the job is over just yet. Send the interviewer an email as soon as possible to express your gratitude for the time they took to interview you, and say you are looking forward to hearing from them. Provide one line at the bottom to enforce why you would be a good candidate. You don't want them to forget about you, but it also looks polite to follow the interview up.

7.    You didn't seem confident
Employers want to see confidence in their candidates. That means no fiddling with your hair and definitely no avoiding eye contact. Speak clearly, look the interviewer in the eye when speaking, sit up straight. Even if you are feeling nervous, put on a front and act as if you aren't!

8.    You aren't on LinkedIn
One of the first things employers do these days is look candidates up online, specifically LinkedIn. If you don't have a LinkedIn profile, now is the time to sign up! Post all your work experience and connect with as many business professionals as you can. This will certainly impress employers as social media is so prominent in the work environment nowadays.

...And Again Senator Yerima divorces 17year old Egyptian wife, marries another 15yr old


Senator Yerima divorces 17year old Egyptian wife, marries another 15yr old
Former Zamfara state governor and serving senator of the federal republic of Nigeria, Sen. Ahmed Yerima,divorced 14 year old Egyptian girl named Marian after three years of marriage and marry a new wife.
The reports says, Sen.Yerima and four men, said to be members of the Zamfara State House of Assembly were in Egypt a few weeks ago for the wedding fathia of a new bride said to be 15 years old.
Marian who is now 17 and a mother of one, is believed to be the daughter of the former governor’s driver whenever he visits Egypt. The reason he divorced her is to enable him take a new wife as he’s not allowed more than four wives.
The Senator is alleged to have married and divorced a few women in the last few years but has never changed his first three wives, only the fourth ones.
Sen. Ahmed Yerima this year was strongly against the deletion of the section of the 1999 constitution which pegged the official marriage age in Nigeria as 18 year, saying it was anti-Islam.
