"I chose her above the others because she has been through it all with me.”

"Annie is my first and true love. I had known her before I met the other women in my life. As a Christian, I had to marry one woman and it just had to be Annie. We had a secret wedding after we had reached an agreement and amicable understanding about the mothers of my children. It was a tough decision to make, one of the toughest in my life."

“I secretly married her because I have so much respect for my other babies’ mothers; I cannot afford to hurt their feelings with a sudden society wedding with Annie, not now. I chose her above the others because she has been through it all with me.”

That's it, it's so so emotional but I have got to say I really do respect the path he choosed to follow in this regad.

Reuters claimed that someone, possibly one of the kidnappers, had made the demand in a phone call on Monday. However, there was no way of confirming the genuineness of the phone call.

“We have to identify the source of the call. Anybody can make spurious calls and demands,” said Delta State Police spokesman, Sergie Ezegam, without giving details of who was contacted or what was demanded.

“We still don’t know the reason for her abduction. What we know is that this is a crime, the woman’s life is in danger and we are making frantic efforts to rescue her.”

The mother of the Finance Minister was kidnapped on Sunday afternoon from her home in Ogwashi-Uku by eight men who invaded her husband’s palace.

Few hours later, the police affirmed that they have authentic information to get hold of the kidnaper's. Days after, we stil await verifiable confirmation of the the claim.

Minister of Works, Mr. Mike Onolemenem, stated this on Monday, and announced that reconstruction work would commence thereafter.

He also said after reconstruction, toll gate would be reintroduced on the road but was silent on who would manage it and the cost of the project.

The minister spoke during a press conference at the Shagamu Interchange end of the road where one of our correspondents observed a Julius Berger team working simultaneously at three different points.

The minister said, “The recovery and rehabilitation work will last for eight weeks and between now and then, all the processes leading to the award of the reconstruction contract in line with the Public Procurement Act would have been completed. We expect that as soon as the rehabilitation work is completed, the reconstruction work will commence.

A letter written by Omokaro’s Counsel, Prince Peter E. Uwadiae-Igbinigie and, dated November 28, 2012 and made available to journalists in Benin, explained that the amount was “for the callous and senseless killing of our client’s daughter, Miss Imienfan Omokaro.”

Besides, Mr. Omokaro’s lawyers want Kingdom Heritage Model School to tender unreserved apology in three national newspapers, warning that if the demands were not met within 14 days, “we have the irrevocable instructions of our client to commence legal action against the school (Kingdom Heritage Model School) and Church (Winners Chapel) without any further correspondence from this Chambers.”

Imienfan Omokaro, a KG I pupil of Kingdom Heritage Model School, was said to have drowned in a drum of water in a toilet in the school on November 1, 2012.

Also, teachers of the school allegedly did not inform her mother when she came to pick her from school on that fateful day until late in the evening.

The school authorities and Winners Chapel had reportedly kept the girl for more than an hour, praying for her before finally taking her to Irowa Hospital in Benin, where she was confirmed dead.

The girl had died before being brought to hospital, doctors said.

Forget Tax, Government Should Fund Church Activities Instead - Rev. Nicholas Okoh

The issue of taxation as it relates to churches in Nigeria has always been greeted with mixed reactions. Rev Nicholas has made his feelings known, and he thinks it's absolutely ridiculous to tax churches.

It Is Ridiculous To Tax Churches - Rev. Nicholas Okoh

"It is unfortunate to hear that someone will suggest that Churches should start paying taxes to government. Considering what Churches are doing for the country, I want to say that government should instead, fund some of our activities and give some kind of funds to Churches.'' Rev Nicholas remarked in Abuja at the 2012 Carnival for Christ, organised by the Abuja Diocese of the Anglican Communion.

What is Caesar's must be given to Caesar, that's my candid opinion on the Church and Taxation.

Lesson 101 For Nigeria Politicians, Obama and Romney Meet At White House For Lunch

It's no secret that the current generation of Nigeria politicians are miles away from being diplomatic during and after a rivalry which see them use demented and over-the-line approach in bringing down their opponents. However, the scar remains when a party is declared the winner, the loosing and main opposition party automatically becomes a notorious enemy using the election petition tribunal to pursue a cause of action; most times it is the barristers and SAN's who end up being enriched by the paymaster as the case is strucked and thrown inside the trash-can.

Lesson 101 For Nigeria Politicians, Obama and Romney Meet At White House For Lunch

I can argue it till eternity that our diplomatic failure isn't based on our democracy still being nascent, that conclusion is old and boring. If other African nations can conduct elections without political rivals engaging in damaging verbal stunts, then Nigeria simply has got no excuse. Afterall she is the glorified giant of Africa. When a situation especially one as delicate as an election becomes a "do or die" affair as one of Nigeria's ex-president best described the process, it would be insane not to understand why the political chemistry in Nigeria has remained in disdain.

Very often when following the trend of an election in the west especially the United States, one becomes so amazed how political rivalry can be squashed immediately after the results are announced. This is done in national interest and to preserve national integrity. The loosing camp immediately initiates the process of conceding defeat and congratulates his opponents.

Now, Three weeks after the election, Mitt Romney made it to the White House. It wasn't the start of a term as Romney had envisioned. But it was, at least, all on good terms with the man who defeated him, President Barack Obama.

Reports suggested that  Obama and Romney had a private lunch on Thursday -  In the menus was some white turkey chili and Southwestern grilled chicken salad. They both ate and had conversation - a kind of conversation that never happens while two presidential nominees are bashing each other's ideas during a campaign.

They shook hands in the Oval Office. They spoke of American leadership in the world. They pledged to keep in touch. Maybe even work together.

That's it, the bang. I can only dream of when a report can be published in the media of how two political opponents sat and had lunch in Nigeria. Perhaps, it might not take a while before my doubts are cleared. 2015 can't come fast.
