Actor Terry Crews shows off his impressive massive muscles as he covers Men's Health magazine

Hollywood actor, Terry Crews is the cover star on the latest issue of Men's Health magazine.

The 50-year-old athlete-turned-actor showed off his impressive muscles for the May issue and admitted to Men's Health that he nearly lost his wife and children as he spiraled into a 'cult of toxic masculinity' in 2010.

According to him, his wife Rebecca told him she had enough of his ways and was taking their five children and leaving him because of his 'self-destructing' habits.

'I was like, "Wait a minute. I’m successful. I’ve got this and this. I’m living the dream,"' Crews recalled. 'And she was like, "You can have this dream. I’d rather be broke. I’d rather be by myself."'

'I said, "All right, leave. I’ll go get four more girls. I’ll be fine. Everybody thinks I’m great."' This is how men work,' he said. 'We roll in a circle, and that camaraderie doesn’t allow for introspection.'

Omoni Oboli berates Nigerians who attack Celebrities for speaking on topical issues

Actress Omoni Oboli has said that Nigerians make it difficult for celebrities to speak up on certain issues concerning the wellbeing of the country and the masses.
She stated this on her Instagram page in the wake of the faceoff her colleague, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, had with the presidency and some members of the public after she said Nigeria under President Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, is hellish.
She posted the screenshot above and wrote
This is something that really bothers me! Let’s discuss it!
I don’t blame celebs and public figures when they keep quiet about the issues that affect us all because the backlash lash is always so much. It makes no sense at all. Most of these issues let’s be honest, affect the common man the most but they are the ones that will insult your family if you dare speak up!
So because someone bought a car or a house, they have no right to talk about the suffering of the masses? Listen, no matter how much money you have in Nigeria today, you are poorer because you are spending more than you should cos the cost of living is higher and the standard of living is very poor!
Nigerians, na who do us this thing?!!! Smh

Lecturers connived with politicians to compromise Integrity of 2019 polls- Ex INEC chair, Attahiru Jega, says

Former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Attahiru Jega, has accused lecturers used as ad hoc staff during the 2019 elections of conniving with politicians to compromise the integrity of the polls.

Jega said this when he spoke at the 15th annual conference of Fulbright Alumni Association of Nigeria (FAAN), which took place at the Dangote Business School at Bayero University, Kano yesterday Wednesday April 17th.

The former election commission umpire, alleged that the attitude of some lecturers during the polls paved the way for faulty recruitment process of the political class during the polls.

“Look at what happened during the last elections, and the story of irregularities being spread even in the four walls of BUK. The politicians, through crooked means, got alliances with lecturers in the university to compromise the system and they perpetrated all sort of irregularities, which paved way for a faulty process for the continued entrenchment of bad people in governance.

“Maybe I am preaching to the converted or I am talking nonsense, but frankly speaking, I am beginning to think that we are not taking the obligations of scholarship and intellectual engagement with the seriousness it deserves.

“I think the major crisis in Nigeria’s democracy is that our electoral integrity has been under assault, compromised and undermined by those who have control over the process." he said

Wike, El Rufai, Ben Ayade, Masari In Tight Race For 2019 Governor Of The Year

 Nigerians have been drawn to vote for the Best performing Governor of the year, ahead of the forthcoming Democracy Heroes Awards, holding in Abuja, at Transcorp Hilton Hotel on the 12th of June, 2019. The event is organized by Face of Democracy organization, and supported by FIRS, AIT and HIP TV to recognize patriotic Democrats who has done excellently well in the delivery of true Democracy in their states, Constituency, communities and agencies.

According reports emanating from the organising team, the nominated Governors that will be competing for the Best Performing Governor of the Year in the 2019 Democracy Heroes Awards are H.E Governor Nyemsome Wike, the Executive Governor of Rivers State, Governor Nasir El Rufai, the Executive Governor of Kaduna State, HE Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State and Governor Benedict Ayade, the Executive Governor of Cross River state.

The category for Nigeria best performing Governor may have geared into a more competitive dimension, with developments of the ongoing voting exercise in Kaduna state, Rivers state, Katsina State and Cross River state.

However, with the re-election of these four nominated Governors in the just concluded 2019 general elections, it is obvious that their democratic devotion earned them the successes they attained. But the big question is, who will earn the majority vote from Nigerians as the "*Best Performing Governor of the Year*?

Amidst the inconsequential sectional crisis surrounding Kaduna state, observers have projected analysis of a fair but not considerate number of votes for Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El Rufai. However, his Rivers State counterpart has continued to heat up the waves with his influential might in the opposition party, especially the controversies that thrilled his re-election in the 2019 Governorship rerun election.

On the other hand, Katsina state's, Governor Aminu Masari has remained undoubtedly responsive in his life changing initiatives to improve livelihood, through improved security and humanitarian initiatives for the people of Katsina State.

The monitoring and evaluation team for the voting exercise also revealed that a review of the daunted democratic commitments of Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River may earn him a more appealing vote, especially with his ongoing inclusive governance of youngsters who plays a more pragmatic role in the voting process.

The Democracy Awards organisers has encouraged Nigerians to be objective in their decision in voting, stressing that the Governor with more votes from Nigerians will emerge as the "Best Performing Governor of the Year".

Name Completed Projects - PDP Reps Member, Sunday Karimi Challenges Governor Yahaya Bello

A member of the House of Representatives, Sunday Karimi, has challenged the Kogi State Government to name projects completed in the state.

Karimi spoke on a Channels Television programme Politics Today, on Wednesday, where he accused the government of looting the state in the last three years.

“What has been happening in Kogi State in the last three years is a situation where somebody came into governance by luck because Kogi people didn’t vote for him in the first place.

“He has taken series of loans from banks, there is no infrastructural development going on anywhere in Kogi state. What they have been doing in the last three years is looting of Kogi resources without anything to show for it. Let them name the projects they have done in the last three years,” he added.

The lawmaker further criticised the governor for failing to pay workers’ salaries, despite the bailout funds released by the Federal Government.

“By the time he (Bello) came into government, President Buhari gave funds to pay what it’s being owed to workers, he took bailout of N30bn. Today, what has he paid to Kogi workers out of the N30bn?

“Our workers are still being owed salary and as at today, he is still asking for a loan of N30bn from the government. Let him show us what he has used the earlier N30bn for.”

Ihedioha Kicks As Okorocha Sets Up Committee On Six Tertiary Schools

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has inaugurated a six-man committee to see to the implementation of six new universities, colleges of education and polytechnics.

Prof. Chima Iwuchukwu will lead commissioners and other members of the committee.

But the move did not go down well with the governor-elect, Emeka Ihedioha, as he has written to the National Universities Commission (NUC) not to honour the approval of more universities in the state.

Okorocha said the House of Assembly backed the committee’s inauguration with a law.

He compared the move to about 15 universities established in Ogun State, which enhanced admission opportunities and job placements.

The proposed new schools include: Aboh Ngor University of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences; University of Agriculture and Developmental Science, Umuagwo; University of Science and Technology, Onuimo; University of Creative Technology, Isiaku-Nkwerre; University of Medical Science, Ogboko, Ideato South; Marine University, Oguta; College of Health Technology; Mbonu Ojike Polytechnic, Arondizuogu; and Bishop Shanahan Polytechnic, Ahiara Mbaise.

Okorocha said the new institutions would be on 90 per cent private investors funding and 10 per cent government input, noting that government would handle infrastructure areas.

Meanwhile, medical doctors in health facilities owned by the state have commenced indefinite strike.

Chairman, Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in Imo, Kyrian Duruewuru, who briefed journalists in Owerri yesterday, accused the state government of treating the doctors unfairly.

He noted that the industrial action was to register their disaffection with the way Imo government under Okorocha had openly marginalised medical practitioners in the state.

The NMA chairman explained that the first phase of the strike would involve all doctors in Imo State University Teaching Hospital (IMSUTH), Orlu; Imo State Specialist Hospital, Umuguma; and the Hospital Management Board (HMB).

According to him, the second phase of the industrial action will involve all doctors in private hospitals and those in federal health centres in the state.

Duruewuru asserted that while their colleagues practising in other states were enjoying the adjusted salary structure for medical practitioners, Okorocha refused to implement it.

He said: “For the past four years, doctors in Imo have received 70 per cent of their salaries. Also, the doctors are being owed three months salaries by Imo government. For us, this highly unacceptable and very insensitive.”

NCC Uncovers Eight Million Forceful Subscriptions To Telecoms Services

The Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC has uncovered eight million forceful subscriptions to telecoms services, and this was revealed in  full audit carried out on 45 VAS providers that had over 65 per cent forceful subscriptions.NCC who is Nigeria's telecoms regulator, uncovered the eight million forceful subscriptions to telecoms service after an audit exercise of forceful mass activation of telecoms subscribers into various value added services was conducted in December last year. The audit was carried out after complaints by subscribers that the Do-Not-Disturb facility introduced by the NCC, had not stopped loss of airtime to Mobile Network Operators for unsolicited services.

“We identified over 8,443,367 illegal mass activations in the last audit exercise and established the fact that these practices of unauthorised mass activations of subscribers were widespread and rampant in the telecoms industry,” NCC said in the report.Based on the outcome of the investigative audit, the commission promised to direct the indicted organisations to make refunds to affected consumers as appropriate. Punch reported that the NCC added that it would impose appropriate sanctions as necessary and may suspend or decommission some VAS platforms and services in the overall interests of consumers.

NJC Meets, May Extend Muhammad’s Tenure As Acting CJN

The National Judicial Council on Wednesday started a two-day meeting where issues of appointment into the office of the Chief Justice of Nigeria are among top items on the agenda, The PUNCH has learnt.

Our correspondent learnt that the NJC might at the end of its meeting on Thursday (today) recommend to President Buhari the extension of Justice Tanko Muhammad’s tenure as the acting CJN, pending when the process of making a substantive appointment for the topmost judicial office would be completed.

By virtue of section 231(4) of the Nigerian 1999 Constitution, Justice Muhammad’s three-month tenure as the acting CJN ends on April 25, and he cannot be re-appointed unilaterally by the President without the NJC’s recommendation.

With the reported resignation of the suspended CJN, Justice Walter Onnoghen, the need to extend Muhammad’s acting tenure was said to be urgent.

“The NJC will likely recommend the extension of the acting CJN’s tenure to avert a vacuum in the office because the process of making the substantive appointment of a CJN cannot be completed in about a week’s time when the tenure of the acting CJN, Justice Muhammad, will elapse,” a source familiar with the NJC’s meeting said.

Officials of the Federal Judicial Service Commission, the body with constitutional powers of advising the NJC on the appointment of the CJN, told our correspondent on Wednesday that the process of appointing the substantive person for the topmost judicial position had yet to start at the commission’s end.

Paragraph 13 of Part I of the Third Schedule of the Constitution provides that “the Commission shall have power to – (a) advise the National Judicial Council in nominating persons for appointment, as respects appointments to the office of –

“(i) the Chief Justice of Nigeria;” among other judges and heads of other federal courts.

FSJC officials explained to our correspondent that although the process of appointing the CJN would start at the commission, the NJC would need to officially inform the commission that the office of the CJN was vacant.

“The meeting of the NJC today (Wednesday) and tomorrow (Thursday) is expected to address the issue and send the necessary notice to the FJSC,” another source said.

The NJC’s ongoing meeting would be the first routine meeting of the council after a series of its emergency meetings which followed President Muhammadu Buhari’s suspension of Justice Onnoghen as the CJN and the immediate swearing-in of Justice Muhammad to replace him in acting capacity, on January 25.

The NJC had at one of its recent emergency meetings set up a panel to investigate various allegations of misconduct levelled against Onnoghen and Muhammad.

On April 3, the council reviewed the report of its five-man investigative panel and sent its recommendations which have not been made public to Buhari.

Barely 24 hours after, Onnoghen, who is believed to have been handed a negative verdict in the NJC’s recommendations, reportedly resigned through a letter he submitted to Buhari.

Reports said Muhammad was cleared by the NJC as he was found not to have done any wrong by submitting himself to being sworn in by Buhari as acting CJN without NJC’s input.

In a report by The PUNCH, Muhammad had in his response to a query by the NJC, claimed that President Buhari did not need the permission of the council to appoint him as the acting CJN.

A group, Centre for Justice and Peace Initiative, had petitioned the NJC, asking the council to remove Muhammad as a Justice of the Supreme Court for allowing himself to be sworn in by the President without recourse to the NJC.

Citing section 231(4) of the Constitution, however, Muhammad had said it would only be required for the President to act based on NJC’s recommendation only in the case of re-appointment in acting capacity or appointment of a substantive CJN.

He stated, “In my respectful view, the National Judicial Council has no role to play in the appointment of an acting Chief Justice of Nigeria in the first instance, that is to say on first appointment.

“The council comes in where the appointment as the acting CJN is to be renewed or extended. I humbly refer to Section 231(4) of the 1999 Constitution.”
