Peter Okoye Shades Nigerian Police, Reveals He Will Show Off His Wealth On Social Media


Peter of the Psquare clan doesn’t agree with the press statement released few days ago by the Nigerian Police Force imploring all celebrities and citizens of the great country – Nigeria to ease up on how they show off their wealth on social media.
The Police in the statement reveals that showing off wealth on social media can easily make one vulnerable and a target for criminals.
Peter Okoyedoesn’t seem to buy the idea.
The singer took to his instagram to share a photo of his luxurious garage and ranted a bit. He said»»
“So if you work your as’s off and buy all dis cars will you hide them in your garage? Pls feel free to show off what the good lord has blessed you with. Because e no easy. After all we all go to church and testify the goodness of the Lord(testimony). Simple as ABC. Thank u#WorkHardAndShine #GodIsGreat”

Nigeria At 55: Read Full Text Of President Buhari’s Speech


“October 1st is a day for joy and celebrations for us Nigerians, whatever the circumstances we find ourselves in because it is the day, 55 years ago; we liberated ourselves from the shackles of colonialism and began our long march to nationhood and to greatness.
“No temporary problems or passing challenges should stop us from honouring this day. Let us remind ourselves of the gifts God has given us. Our Creator has bequeathed to us Numbers – Nigeria is the ninth most populated country on the planet. We have in addition arable land; water; forests; oil and gas; coastline; and solid minerals
“We have all the attributes of a great nation. We are not there yet because the one commodity we have been unable to exploit to the fullest is unity of purpose. This would have enabled us to achieve not only more orderly political evolution and integration but also continuity and economic progress.
“Countries far less endowed have made greater economic progress by greater coherence and unity of purpose.
“Nonetheless, that we have remained together is an achievement we should all appreciate and try to consolidate. We have witnessed this year a change in our democratic development.
“The fact that an opposition party replaced an entrenched government in a free and fair election is indicative of the deeper roots of our democratic system. Whatever one’s views are, Nigerians must thank former President Jonathan for not digging-in in the face of defeat and thereby saving the country untold consequences.
“As I said in my inaugural speech, I bear no ill will against anyone on past events. Nobody should fear anything from me. We are not after anyone. People should only fear the consequences of their actions. I hereby invite everyone, whatever his or her political view to join me in working for the nation.
“My countrymen and women, every new government inherits problems. Ours was no different. But what Nigerians want are solutions, quick solutions not a recitation of problems inherited.
“Accordingly, after consultations with the Vice President, senior party leaders and other senior stakeholders, I quickly got down to work on the immediate, medium-term and long-term problems which we must solve if we are to maintain the confidence which Nigerians so generously bestowed on us in the March elections and since then.
“As you know, I toured the neighbouring countries, marshalled a coalition of armed forces of the five nations to confront and defeat Boko Haram. I met also the G-7 leaders and other friendly presidents in an effort to build an international coalition against Boko Haram.
“Our gallant armed forces under new leadership have taken the battle to the insurgents, and severely weakened their logistical and infrastructural capabilities. Boko Haram are being scattered and are on the run.
“That they are resorting to shameless attacks on soft targets such as I.D.P. camps is indicative of their cowardice and desperation. I have instructed security and local authorities to tighten vigilance in vulnerable places.
On power, government officials have held a series of long sessions over several weeks about the best way to improve the nation’s power supply in the safest and most cost-effective way.
“In the meantime, improvement in the power supply is moderately encouraging. By the same token, supply of petrol and kerosene to the public has improved throughout the country. All the early signs are that within months the whole country would begin to feel a change for the better.
“Preliminary steps have been taken to sanitize NNPC and improve its operations so that the inefficiency and corruption could be reduced to a minimum.
“Those of our refineries which can be serviced and brought back into partial production would be enabled to resume operations so that the whole sordid business of exporting crude and importing finished products in dubious transactions could be stopped.
“In addition to NNPC, I have ordered a complete audit of our other revenue generating agencies mainly CBN, FIRS, Customs, NCC, for better service delivery to the nation. Prudent house-keeping is needed now more than ever in view of the sharp decline in world market oil prices. It is a challenge we have to face squarely. But what counts is not so much what accrues but how we manage our resources.
“We have seen in the last few years how huge resources were mismanaged, squandered and wasted. The new APC government is embarking on a clean up, introducing prudence and probity in public financing.
“At an early stage, the federal government addressed the issue of salary arrears in many states, a situation capable of degenerating into social unrest. The APC government stepped in to provide short-term support to the debtor states and enabled them to pay off the backlog and restore the livelihood of millions of Nigerians.
“Fellow Nigerians, there have been a lot of anxiety and impatience over the apparent delay in announcement of ministers. There is no cause to be anxious. Our government set out to do things methodically and properly. We received the handing over notes from the outgoing government only four days before taking over. Consequently, the Joda Transition Committee submitted its Report on the reorganization of Federal Government structure after studying the hand over notes. It would have been haphazard to announce ministers when the government had not finalized the number of ministries to optimally carry the burden of governance.
“Anyway, the wait is over. The first set of names for ministerial nominees for confirmation has been sent to the senate. Subsequent lists will be forwarded in due course. Impatience is not a virtue. Order is more vital than speed. Careful and deliberate decisions after consultations get far better results. And better results for our country is what the APC government for CHANGE is all about.
“I would like to end my address this morning on our agenda for CHANGE. Change does not just happen. You and I and all of us must appreciate that we all have our part to play if we want to bring change about. We must change our lawless habits, our attitude to public office and public trust. We must change our unruly behaviour in schools, hospitals, market places, motor parks, on the roads, in homes and offices. To bring about change, we must change ourselves by being law-abiding citizens.
“Happy Independence Celebrations. Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

Google Celebrates Nigeria’s 55th Independence with ‘Eagles’ Doodle.


It’s Independence Day! My Beloved Nigerians. It’s Nigeria’s 55th Independence.
Apparently, Search Engine and Industry Giant, Google has been creating illustrative artwork that features the culture, colors and style of Nigeria.
Recall last year, in a bid to Celebrate Nigeria’s 54th Independence, Google had a .gif doodle which featured the three most popular means of transport for daily commuters in Lagos – the Country’s Commercial capital – The Motorcycle (Okada), Bus (danfo) and tricycle (Keke Marwa).
The passengers in these vehicles also appear to represent the three major tribes — Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba — respectively, dressed in their native attires and carrying the Nigerian flag, grining and waving as they ride on.
Nigeria gained independence on the 1st of October, 1960. This is the third doodle for Nigeria’s Independence Anniversary to be created by Google since October 2010.
In 2015, below is the picture of what Google used to celebrate Nigeria’s 55 years of Independence

Happy Independence Day Nigeria! A Journey To Independence | Read Here»»


55years aback, Millons of ebony shining skinned individual meddled in this part of the world to form a country named Nigeria. From the stand point of crudeness, How ignorance bred colonialism – A sting never to be forgotten. Those brutal stripes our fathers had borne so much hard work for no cost, we were slaved night and day. Although split into various clusters of ethnicity, colonized by people who saw us not as humans but as animals.
At the clock of 1914 we were amalgamated, controlled by one head light of power. As time went one the baton of leadership was dragged from the hands of our dear colonial masters. we debated between Military rule and Democracy but weigh more in strength for Democracy wwe have only but stood for one government, a government for the people as the rule of law prevails over all ramifications.
Through this journey,states were formed out of regions, Splited into diversity,Yet we have survived all attacks on unity. We have delved together in pains, cried alongside in times were blood was shed. We have held strong to oneness, moved from one tenure to the another and are proud to stand Head’s high to corruption with a blossoming economy. We have learnt to love ,To accommodate justice in our hands to prevail over diversity.
From the North to the South, to the West and East,Nigeria being so rich in nature’s heritage has produced fertility.We have a large choice of wealth,ranging from Agriculture,Oil-produce and other Natural minerals.Education had spread forth it’s wings and has embraced us to knowledge, We have held strong wisdom as key and has wroth wonders in and out of this dear country of ours.
We 55 years stronger today. From crudeness,We have journeyed through ignorance to certainty, moved from dependence to freedom. We are a sovereign Nation, self subsistent,so powerful in influence.
We are the Gaint of Africa-Nigeria..
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE NIGERIA!
And a Happy Independence Day to our most distinguished readers! Have a wonderful day!

19. Ibrahim Jibril
20. Audu Ogbeh (Benue)

NB: aanuadey.wordpress.com cannot independently confirm the authenticity of this list.
There had however been reports that the trio of Babatunde Fashola, Rotimi Amaechi and Kayode Fayemi during the screening with the security agency were disqualified on the ground that they had some issues relating to financial misappropriation.
Following the apprehension that trailed the long delay in the release of the ministerial list, President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday, October 1, hadconfirmed to Nigerians that he submitted the first set of the ministerial nominees he would want in his cabinet to the Senate for confirmation.
According to a top presidency source, a last minute change by President Buhari favoured the former governor of Anambra state, Chris Ngige, whose name came in at the eleventh hour.
The inclusion of Ngige was to dispel the notion that the current administration is marginalising South-easterners on the basis that they did not support the presidency during the last general election.
