David Mark didn't buy any car for Tuface & Annie - S.A

According to a statement released by Senator David Mark's Senior Adviser on Media, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, Senator David Mark has denied giving Tuface a car gift after his wedding in Dubai on Saturday.
Here's the statement Mr Kola released, in an interview with CKN Nigeria:

Senator Mark did not visit Dubai for Tuface's wedding rather he attended the 128th Inter parliamentary Union (IPU) conference currently holding in Quito, Ecuador. He was also not represented at Mr. Idibia's wedding.

It is also instructive to state that the President of the Senate, Senator Mark, did not make a car donation of any kind to Tuface before departing Nigeria for Ecuador neither did he purchase nor send any car to Dubai as a wedding gift for the musician or his wife.

Who made the donation on behalf of the President of the Senate?

It is therefore a puerile lie for anybody to state that Senator Mark bought a Ferrari car worth N47m for Tuface. The allegation is wicked, ridiculous and irresponsible.

Signed: Kola Ologbondiyan
Special Adviser, Media & Publicity to the President of the Senate David Mark

#But the tag on the car seems very clear to me with the caption "Wedding gift from Senator David Mark to Tuface and Annie" ok maybe that's photoshop right?

Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom state gave SUV, some said two but now the commissioner is saying one, to the music star Tuface and his wife Annie Macaulay as wedding gift during their traditional wedding in Akwa Ibom.
The gesture of the Governor has since been causing heated arguement as some were arcusing the govenor of wasting the task payers' money.
The State commissioner, appearing on Channels TV programme Sunrise Daily, said the gift and money shower on Tuface and wife by the state governor is nothing comparing to what they have done for the state.

While the dust raised by the Federal Government’s  removal of the director general of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) Dr Harold Demuren is yet to settle, news filtered into the industry on Saturday night that government had also revoked the Air Operators Certificate of Dana Air.

Both the House of Representatives and Senate had earlier in the year passed a resolution asking the Federal Government to revoke the operating licence of Dana Air and to remove the Director-General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, among other things, based on the report of the committee on the investigation carried out on the 2012 Dana crash.
while all those called on phone to confirm the story declined, a  top official in the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) who spoke on a condition of anonymity confirmed the withdrawal of Dana’s Air Operator Certificate (AOC).

Commentary: what the election of Pope Francis means for the Church

Pope Francis: the perks of being elected Pontiff
Pope Francis asked first for the blessing of the crowd in St Peter's Square before delivering his own

 Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio makes Christianity compelling. Luke Coppen, editor of The Catholic Herald, analyses what his election means for the Church. 


Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio has looked like an obvious choice for pope since he reportedly came second in the balloting to Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger in 2005 - but he kept such a low profile that few commentators saw him as a leading candidate in 2013.
Clearly he enjoyed the deep respect of the world's cardinals, who must have voted for him in significant numbers from the very first ballot. He was elected tonight on the fifth vote, suggesting a massive groundswell of support in the College of Cardinals.
As he showed in his first address this evening, he is a man of great humility, asking first for the blessing of the crowd in St Peter's Square before he delivered his own.
His choice of the name "Francis" evokes St Francis of Assisi, the Italian mystic who received a call from God to "rebuild my Church". Pope Francis must believe that it is his task to rebuild a Church that has been profoundly damaged by abuse scandals and corruption within the Roman Curia.
The Jesuits have often been seen as an alternative power base to the papacy in the Catholic Church. With the election of the first Jesuit as pope, these two bases have been united for the first time in history.
Like any pope, his task is to conserve the Catholic faith, rather than alter it, so he is unlikely to effect any of the changes commonly cited by the media: approving contraception, making priestly celibacy voluntary or ordaining women.
But he will surely surprise us with his spontaneity, unstuffiness and evident personal holiness.
When I read about him in preparation for the 2005 conclave I was touched the stories of him washing the feet of Aids patients and living humbly among the poor in Buenos Aires. Many thought the cardinals would elect a kind of management consultant pope who would turn the Curia into an efficient bureaucracy. They have chosen, instead, a simple and holy man, who makes Christianity seem compelling because he so clearly lives it out.

 Information reaching me some minutes ago has it that the crisis rocking the Ogun House of Assembly (Click here if you missed it) has been settled by the State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, and peace has been restored to the house.

If they do, does any resolution passed become a law or it would be just a mere suggestion. hehe, oya let's see the what message they will now be passing to the masses.
 One thing is sure, if they are able to make law without the symbol, God forbid what might happen later in the future as a result.
Lastly, I just hope this fight won't repeat itself very soon!

Baby cured of HIV: New Hope, New Question

A toddler born in July 2010 has been 'functionally cured' of the deadly virus she was born with.

The Mississippi toddler was treated with aggressive HIV therapy within 30 hours of delivery and continued for 18 months. She is now considered cured of her infection, a team of researchers led by Dr. Deborah Persaud, a virologist at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, said in a news conference at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Atlanta on Sunday.

The remarkable case of the baby being cured of HIV infection in the United States using readily available drugs has raised new hope for eradicating the infection in infants worldwide, though scientists are still saying it will take a lot more research and much more sensitive diagnostics before this hope becomes a reality.

Dr. Hanna Gay who spear headed the girls treatment said she was surprise and panic to see the result even though the girl has not taken any medication for the past 5 months and now tested negative to HIV.
