Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello, is not dead, he is hale and hearty- Media aide says

Brangelina Divorce: Battle between Jolie & Pitt for custody of their kids continue

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt made headlines when their supposedly perfect marriage crashed and Angelina sought for primary custody of their children. Well, the battle is on as Brad has not only filed legal documents requesting for joint custody, but Angelina is reportedly not willing to stand down. Read TMZ's report after the cut...

Angelina Jolie is ready and willing to fight Brad Pitt in court over the custody of their children and "until he gets his s**t together" she only wants him to have monitored visitation ... sources connected to Angelina tell TMZ.

Angelina's wish list is basically what she and Brad agreed to temporarily while the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services investigates a confrontation between Brad and Maddox. As we reported, DCFS is looking more broadly at interactions in the family.

Our Angelina sources say she ultimately wants the family repaired so she and Brad can resume a "normal" parenting regime, but until then she will fight hard for sole physical custody. She believes Brad has substance abuse and anger issues that must be addressed.

Sources connected with Brad tell us ... the custody arrangement is riding on the conclusions of DCFS, and they believe the agency will determine Brad is a good parent.

One Angelina source said this is looking more and more like "War of the Roses redux."

Chika Ike says she is not a role model

Chika Ike shared a sultry picture on Instagram with this write up;
"I'm back home ,sitting on my couch and thinking  of how blessed i am to have you all in my life. Your constant  love and support has kept me going all these years. I get a lot of messages ,emails and comments from people asking why I started "African diva" reality tv show . The sole purpose is to give a young African woman a platform , an opportunity and a startup capital that will enable her face the world ,be productive and be a person of value .It's  also my little way of giving back and also appreciating God for all the blessings he has bestowed on me. I didn't have it all rosy and I know what it feels like not to have at all, to feel helpless and to have a burning desire to achieve your set goals. My goal is not to be a role model or some kind of super woman , I'm doing what I love doing with all my heart and if while I am at it I encourage and motivate someone then good enough. The truth is you can be whatever you want to be if you believe in you ,with hard work and the grace of God, nothing is impossible.NEVER stop believing .NEVER stop working hard . Never stop Praying. Love you all❤️

Photos: Protest as Lagos bans LAGBUS from plying Ikorodu Road

Residents of Ikorodu community in Lagos state are currently staging a protest following the decision of the state government to ban the LAGBUS(red buses) from plying their route which already has the BRT (blue buses) plying it.

Acting Commissioner for Transportation, Prince Anofiu Olanrewaju Elegushi, at a press conference on Friday, said the decision was taken ahead of plans to introduce Intelligent Traffic System along the BRT corridor in the state.
Elegushi said consequently, all LAGBUS would no longer be allowed to load or drop passengers along the BRT corridor, pointing out that it was part of steps taken to relocate all other franchises from the use of the corridor.
“Henceforth, the LAGBUS buses can only provide end to end bus services using the expressway and service lanes along the Ikorodu Road stretch. The restriction does not extend to charter staff buses run by LAGBUS; does not preclude access to depot along Ikorodu road and express services are allowed with only few designated stops. All routes from Ikorodu hinterland will now terminate at TOS Benson Bus Stop after which there will be no loading of passengers. However, the operations of LAGBUS buses have been moved to other 14 routes identified by the Lagos State Metropolitan Transport Master Plan.”
This decision however left many of the commuters stranded this morning. They are currently staging a protest and calling on the government to rescind its decision.

"The only way out of recession is to spend for growth. You can only spend for growth either from savings or from borrowing.
The question is: what are you borrowing for?
Are you borrowing for consumption or for production?
When you borrow for consumption, you are heading for disaster."
-- Peter Obi.
" I had to stop the Presidential lodge in Anambra... A project awarded at 400million. I had to close down state house in lagos and Abuja... Because I felt we dont need it.... Even when other states had."
" They said President Obasanjo is coming... I went to borrow the kind of cars they wanted... Instead of spending millions... From a neigbouring state."
"I requested Obasanjo to spend the nights in my lodge Since they said he must sleep over... I asked my wife to pack out of my bedroom... We went opposite to lodge in a hotel (name mentioned) for the week, we paid N30,000 instead of N100,000."
"I used the 150million for 2 bullet proof cars to buy almost 50 Peugeot cars at 3 million each.. gave 17 to JUDGES and 18 to permanent Secretaries (because i discovered they did not have cars) and kept 10 for govt house... which I used as Governor... I did not use bullet proof cars as Governor."
"They said we should attend world Igbo Congress in U. S.... That the budget WAS cut from 40 to 32million.... I asked them why... That only one person should go and come and tell us what was discussed."
"Instead of paying 30,000 for each security personnel (about 30) per night in Abuja, I told IG to give me Police whenever am in Abuja....I travel alone... Ppl complained.... The 15 drivers lodged in Abuja state house...who come to airport to cause confusion, i asked to go, kept only 3. The others to go back to Akwa or look for job... I asked the cook to go back to Akwa instead of giving him 30,000 per plate."
"When Governors lodge and Govt house was burnt before I came... With budget of 400million and 300 million, I repaired them for 42 million and 80million respectively. They wanted to impeach me that I did not spend by due process... Following the awarded Contracts and contractor.... I saw a table.. That my predecessor used, they said its old... I asked them to renovate it... That all i needed was a table to write as Governor... "
" So so so I was able to save money and made sure that ANAMBRA HAS THE BEST ROAD NETWORK THAN ANY OTHER STATE IN NIGERIA....."
