• Jim Iyke: Dear Lord, please give me a daughter

    26/Dec/2016 // 911 Viewers


    Three months after his son turned one, Nollywood actor Jim Iyke, wants another child, this time around, a girl.

    The actor took to social media on Boxing Day to pen a note of prayer to God, describing it as a petition he must submit before the year ends.

    “Please give me a daughter,” he pleaded and stated that he would be the “father, fathers dream of”.

    Jim Iyke said he wants the public prayer to God asking for a daughter to be his “most ardent test of faith”.

    The letter reads in part: “Dear Lord, I decided to quickly submit this petition before the year runs out. I’ll keep it short and straight. The last time we had this convo, King Harv showed up. My life has never been the same since. It’s being an amazing cocktail of unprecedented blessings, self-realisation, bold endeavours and forging of powerful alliances.

    “Now to the matter at hand. My sister says I’m a career cynic. My Ghanaian ex says my head is too strong for love. My Nigerian and past exes say I’m amazing but Gladys took the last iota of love I have for any woman with her.

    “I want a baby girl Lord. A daughter that will keep me on her permanent mumu button. I’ve done this before when King came and turned even the hardest skeptics to awestruck as I took fatherhood to the letter as naturally as fish in water.

    “Please give me a daughter this time Lord. You know I’m one that never brings my private affairs to the public but I want this act of vulnerability to be my most ardent test of faith.

    “I’ll be the father fathers dream of. I’ll pour my body, soul and spirit into raising her. Besides, King needs a sister to protect and love.”

    The actor added that he would like his dream daughter to have the physical attributes of Shade Adu and the intelligence of Michelle Obama.

    “I moved my file from the middle to the top of the stack when the LORD asks for it. A little addendum if you pls; I want her to look like Shade Adu in her teens with the brains of Michelle Obama.”

  • Watch! ‘Cucumber action’ Miss Anambra in lesbian sex video scandal (Part 2)

    26/Oct/2016 // 1802 Viewers


    CURRENTNEWSNOW: Some days ago, we posted a video showing the beauty queen engaged in lesbian acts with one of her close friends, a lady known as ‘Ada’. Chidinma was shown in the video using a cucumber to penetrate herself  before Ada came over to help out by smooching and caressing her vagina while she continued the ‘cucumber action’.

    Ada is said to be a beauty queen too, she was the 3rd runner up of the Queen of Democracy 2014 and she also doubles as Chidinma’s personal assistant.


    After the video had been trending online for a while, Chidinma came out to deny she is the one in the video. She insisted it was photoshopped and her face was super-imposed into the existing pictures.

     She wrote:  ”My attention has been drawn to a concocted photograph/ video being circulated in the social media wherein my face was superimposed on an existing picture of persons engaging amorous conduct through the art of photo shopping.This act is perpetrated by hodlums who are out to blackmail me or tarnish my image and promising career by presenting me in bad light. I wish to say that the said image is certainly not mine by any stretch of imagination.

    ”I am a highly responsible person who was brought up in a family with impeccable reputation. I can therefore not subscribe to such act how much more engage in same .

    Meanwhile, I have referred the matter to my lawyer for possible prosecution of the culprits and civil claim. Please be advised to discountenance the said photograph/ video and regard it as handiworks of detractors. Thank you.

    Okeke Chidinma” But lots of her followers won’t have any of it as they think she was playing on their intelligence. Well, the blackmailer is unknown yet and the reasons behind him/her releasing the very private video is not known yet.

    Olofofos claim that the blackmailer is someone from Chidinma’s close circle of friends. And the blackmailer has released the part 2 of the video which is very clear, shows the face of the beauty queen and her PA. The video is about 59seconds long.

  • Nollywood actress reveals why men fear women with fame

    27/Aug/2016 // 293 Viewers


    THE NATION - Lola Faduri is a psychologist and surgical assistant in the United States of America who, for her passion in the make-believe world, decided to pursue a degree in filmmaking at the renowned New York Film Academy. Fondly called Adetoun L’America among her folks, the light skinned lady, who started her acting career in 2001 with the popular Odunfa Caucus, recently produced two films. In this interview with DUPE AYINLA-OLASUNKANMI, she speaks on her journey in the motion picture world, among other issues.

    TELL us about your new movies?

    I just finished producing two movies. One of them is titled Ayamo meaning ‘Destiny’. It is basically about people who think they cannot succeed or survive in Nigeria without traveling abroad. They do not know the daily struggles of those living there and they think life is smoother on the other side. The irony of it is that people stay here in Nigeria and succeed without having to travel.

    There’s a lot to learn from it but it simply teaches us that wherever you are destined to be, God will locate and prosper you. We do not need to travel abroad before we make it in life. The second movie is titled Ife Odale. It’s a story of betrayal, hurt and greed between couples. It also emphasizes reasons why distance can damage homes and relationship.

    If a spouse relocates abroad and the other spouse is back home, should there be trust? Could such marriages work? Can such marriage stand the test of time? All these answers can be found in the movie Ife Odale.
    One of the challenges producers face is funding. How have you been raising funds for your projects?

    Well, acting and movie making are not the only careers I have. I work in the medical field here in the US and I’m also into buying and selling.

    Moreover, our industry is not as profitable as before but that doesn’t mean we still don’t make money from the movies we produce. Most of my colleagues have other businesses, and we fund our movies ourselves because it’s what we have a passion doing.

    What are the challenges of staying abroad and getting roles in Nigeria?

    It’s hard, to be sincere. It’s a big challenge but if you are determined, things will always work out the way you want. There are lots of actors that are based in US and UK. In fact, Nollywood US produces lots of movies every year. We have an industry here too. I know people who produce here in US without having to travel home.

    My last production, Adetoun L’america was shot here in US. I mean 90 % of it and only few scenes were shot in Nigeria. I’ve featured in a lot of productions here that don’t have a single scene in Nigeria, so it’s not so hard to get roles here. But I personally have to travel to shoot my movies and get roles in Nigeria and I get roles here in US too.

    How true is the perception that most actresses are wayward?

    Well, I don’t know about that. There’s no industry that does not have wayward people as you mentioned, so it’s not only in our industry. It happens everywhere and in every career but just because we are role models, people tend to think there should be perfection in Nollywood, I do not see or know any wayward colleague but if some of them are actually wayward, then it’s very bad.

    People also believe their wayward attitude could be one of the reasons. They get married late and end up divorced?

    Some people marry late for reasons best known to them, not because of waywardness. Actually, there are two sides to it. Some men are reluctant to marrying female actors because of the fame and they think they cannot control them; this could lead to female actors marrying late.

    On the other side most men that eventually marry them for the stardom part and not real love which eventually leads to divorce in no time except the very few God-fearing men. Yes, I could start mentioning happily married female actors that don’t have any problem in their marriages. There is a lot of us.

    You must have been in the business for a while; cell you tell us about it?

    If you have passion for something and you aren’t seeing yourself doing it, it saddens you. Acting has been my passion, so if I know any one that knows someone in the industry, I was always quick to tell them to introduce me. There was this brother I know; he’s a very popular musician in London. His name is Jide Chord. He and Uncle Alade Aromire were very close friends. He introduced me to Alade Aromire in 2002 and he tutored me till 2005 before I relocated.

    Same way I met Uncle Yinka Quadri in 2001 through his brother Waheed Olateju Quadri. He told me he is Yinka Quadri’s brother and I was like you have to take me to see him. That was how I started going to Odunfa. I used to go to LTV 8 to see Uncle Alade Aromire back in 2003 at his Yotomi studio. He knew I was in Odunfa but I took him as a brother and because he was a veteran, I learned a lot from him, I pray his gentle soul continues to rest in peace.

    What is it like combining acting with a medical career?

    Acting is my career and medicine is my job. I have passion for both but acting is my life: Healthcare brings me money, I combine both easily without one affecting the other.

    Do you think you can have a break with you

    staying abroad?

    Yes and I’m not only aiming to become a top shot in Nollywood, I plan to make big movies that will be shot in Los Angeles and I will cast Hollywood actors, I went to NY Film Academy here and most of my colleagues we graduated together have relocated to Los Angeles to start a career.

    We do keep in touch and I plan to make an Afro/American film project soon. I hope to cast both Hollywood and Nollywood actors. Acting for me is not all about the country I was born alone but also about the county I live. I’m aiming higher and with God nothing is impossible.

    What was your reason for joining a caucus?

    Back then, it was necessary to join a caucus. You see, people don’t produce movies then like we do now. Before you can even feature in one movie, you have to really try. It wasn’t coming easy and there were few producers. But now, I do not belong to any caucus. We produce singly, we have marketers and we feature other actors. There are still caucuses and I always and will always represent Odunfa caucus but I don’t belong to any now.

    Are you also of the opinion that joining one is the only way to survive in the Yoruba movie industry?

    No, I don’t believe that the only way to survive is to join a caucus but it’s good to join one especially if you are just coming up as an artist.

    Is Ife Odale your story?

    No, it’s not my story but it’s a true life story of what is happening in our society. It is assumed that producers sometimes tell the story of their life through their works. But if they do, they will let the audience know it’s the true life story. Not every story is true life. There are lots of things happening in our society, and there is a lot to write about.

    Are you one of the actresses who believe marrying a white man makes their career easy to maintain?

    I don’t believe marrying a white man makes life easy abroad; neither does it make a career easy to maintain. Marrying black or white here does not make any difference unless for people marrying the white to get their papers and eventually getting divorced at the end.

    Did you pay those you featured in your new movie, or it is the normal norm of exchange, which is popular in the Yoruba sector?

    I paid them all, although I cannot finish paying them. Can we finish paying each other? No. The works we do is much but the pay is little, we help each other a lot too, may God bless our hustles.

    You also act in English movies too?

    Yes, it started from my church. Half of those English movies are produced By COGA Cathedral, and one of the movies was directed by Doyin Hassan and others by reputable Christian movie directors. I’m a devout Christian and a child of God. I’ve featured in other Nollywood English movies as well.

    What is your take on those who flaunt their charity works on social media?

    It’s good to do charity but not as means of cheap publicity.

  • I needed a break, says Mercy Johnson

    27/Aug/2016 // 212 Viewers


    Curvy cum busty Nollywood actress, Mercy Johnson-Okojie, has revealed how much it was worth to create time out of her extremely busy career schedule to go on holiday with her husband in the United States for approximately three weeks. 

    Shortly after her return to her home country, the pretty mother of three spoke to Potpourri on the importance of taking time out to go on vacations. 

    “We went to spend time together, three kids, three years, its fun; it’s awesome. In marriage, it’s necessary to have time to reminisce, plan and talk” she said excitedly. 

    Responding to why she’s already working barely a week after her return from the United States with her husband, she responded; “It’s not about the money, as a person I combine my marriage, my kids, my work together. I’ve done that for the past five years. 

    My kids are on holidays now, so it’s a better time for me to work before they get back to school; it’s actually a better timing. Like I always say, it’s not about the money but the passion I have for my work.” - Vanguard

  • Ex-pianist, DURO IKUJENYO to Fela Anikulapo-Kuti calls for revolution in Nigeria, narrates how Fela stormed Dodan Barracks with mother's coffin

    27/Jan/2017 // 569 Viewers


    PARIS, JANUARY 27, 2016: (DGW) Ex-pianist to late Afro-beat king, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, assuming the role of his former master has descended heavily on Buhari on his birthday in a chat with TSW published by Daily Sun.

    The pianist, Duro Ikujenyo, who traveled with the late Afrobeat maestro across the world said in the interview said that Buhari's change does not border on the Age of Aquarius but material things which if dwelt on will make one hypertensive.

    While marking his 60th birthday, Duro Ikujenyo, said he feels great and talked about so many things including what happened when Fela Anikulapo Kuti invaded Dodan Barracks, Lagos with his mother's coffin.

    Pianist, Duro Ikujenyo

    He called for a revolution in Nigeria apparently protesting the hard times adding that the Nigerian government has no policy direction which speaks volumes for the ongoing hardship across the country.


    Have you made money from music, are you fulfilled?

    My happiness is an everyday thing. My philosophy is that I don’t depend on perishable things. And that is what my band; The Age of Aquarius is all about. The Age of Aquarius is not the change Buhari is talking about. Buhari is talking about material things. If you dwell on material things you will have hypertension and be taking coca-cola and all the things that will destroy you without looking for your own original roots. I use chewing stick because it is very medicinal; you can also crush it and put it in your tea, it is the strongest vitamin C and mint. When I was growing up, with N1000 you could buy a car so how can you be talking about being fulfilled when Nigeria is getting underdeveloped. When I read Walter Rodney’s “How Europe Underdeveloped Africa”, I forgot about the Nigerian  government because they can never ever change. Like I said, I live with the people. They come and say they are hungry, they have not eaten, no light and no water. And my landlady has bought five pumping machines and they all went bad. In fact, I don’t want to talk about fulfillment. If you are talking about fulfillment in Nigeria just forget it because any day there is an election there is always fuel pump price increment. Do you know how many times they have increased fuel pump price after elections? There is no planning in Nigeria. My fulfillment will be that day when we have a revolution. I have a song entitled Revolution which I specially composed for Nigeria. And the revolution must be dynamic and coordinated. Fela was a leader with a strong philosophy. We must know that as Nigerians or Africans, we are all one. But the first thing we must think of is how to organise ourselves into a community. That is why we have an organization called May25 Group which originated from Fela’s MOP (Movement Of The People ). You can hear it in  Fela’s song, the one dedicated to the day he carried his mother’s coffin to Dodan Barracks. I was right there at the front of the action that very day.

    Can you recall what happened?

    It was a Sunday, the last day before Obasanjo handed over to Shehu Shagari. Fela rented two buses, a coaster and a normal bus and put the coffin in the small bus while 75 people boarded the coaster bus. We took off from Fela’s house in Ikeja by 12pm and drove straight to Eko Bridge. We were in traffic and police tried to stop us because they informed them that Fela was coming so we did a detour and came in through Apapa. When we got to Dodan Barracks, there were no soldiers because Obasanjo was handing over power the next day and the gate was opened so we drove inside  because there was no soldier to assault us.  We had a photographer by name Femi Osula. There was also another photographer from Punch by name Dare. Femi climbed over the fence and took photographs and disappeared. That was when the army got wind of what was unfolding and they alerted the barracks that ‘ahh… there is wahalao-o! Fela has brought a coffin.’ Before we knew it over 1000 soldier jumped on us from every angle with every kind of weapon and beat us blue black! However, one intelligent officer ordered them to stop so we were bundled into the bus and they took us to a mobile police station on Awolowo  Road where they used to interrogate armed robbers. About 52 of us where put in two small rooms. After four days they took us to court and the case was thrown out because there was no offence and besides, the military was no longer in power.

  • WATCH VIDEO: Jilted Nigerian university lecturer leaks sex video of his female student

    27/Nov/2016 // 1011 Viewers


    PARIS, NOVEMBER 27, 2016: (DGW) As part of the stringent measures to control the excesses of some randy Nigerian university lecturers, the Nigerian senate passed a Bill prescribing a five-year jail term for randy lecturers.

    This was condemned by lecturers who criticized the federal lawmakers for abandoning  challenges plaguing the country to frivolous issues when the masses are dying of hunger and starvation as result of the failed policies of the present administration.

    However, some lecturers in Nigeria's tertiary institutions  have been accused of sexually victimizing their female students in return for marks. This act has been condemned by some women groups across the country.

    Some argued that awarding marks to female students who know next to nothing in such courses could be very dangerous for the country for they are , in fact , preparing half-baked graduates which will not augur well for the country's workforce.

  • I will get married when my husband finds me - Genevieve Nnaji

    27/Oct/2015 // 439 Viewers

    Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji has said she will get married when her Prince Charming finds her.

    The beautiful actress who has been off our screens for a while, also explained she has been picky with scripts in the last 5 years.

    Speaking with Encomium Magazine on when she will be getting hitched, she said: “When he finds me”.

    On why she has been off our screens for so long, she said: “I didn’t take a break. Yes you haven’t seen me in any film but it is not my doing. I read at least three or four scripts a week for the past five years. That is to show you how bad it is. I am very careful when it comes to what I take part in.

    “There is so much or nothing you can do to convince me. I have to love a story so that I can bring it to life. It is not a one man band. The story needs to entice. The character needs to be appealing and then, you are one with it. With that, it becomes easy to be a good actor. If I don’t get a good script, I am not going on set. I haven’t seen anything worth my while in years, that is the truth. I don’t know who did what we did in the 90s. If you can’t beat your last job, what is the point? You might as well take a bow but I am not bowing out yet.”

  • 4 ways to deal with a cheating boyfriend

    28/Apr/2016 // 389 Viewers


    Cheating may be a deal-breaker in your relationship, or it may not, depending on the circumstances. There are lots of different factors to consider, and emotions at stake. Follow these steps to help decide how to go forward

    1. Investigate. Play detective, and notice his suspicious mannerisms. Ask yourself the following:

    Has he been less intimate with you? If you notice sex become less frequent, he might be getting something on the side.[1]

    Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 1Bullet1

    *Has he been dressing to impress? Men do this when they’re first interested in someone, but when things get serious, they tend to slack on their appearance. If he suddenly starts working out or takes an unusual interest in his looks, he’s looking good for someone else.[2]

    *Is he “working late” more frequently? If “working late” becomes more regular, or if he’s spending nights away “on business,” he’s probably seeing someone else. Unless he’s been overwhelmed with work, in which case he probably tells you all about specific things he’s stressed about. 
    If he’s vague about his late nights and business trips, and doesn’t tell you very much about them, there’s a solid chance he’s seeing someone else.[2]

    *Does he check his phone a lot, and is he secretive about it? Some men are simply more private than others, but if he becomes defensive when you ask him who he’s corresponding with, he’s hiding something.

    Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 1Bullet4

    *Has he become protective of his personal accounts? More so than usual? If he suddenly installs a password on his cell phone or computer, or starts intercepting the mail to open bank statements in private, he is likely having an affair.[2]

    *Has he been withdrawn and distant from you lately? If he’s behaving anxious around you, there’s a chance he’s having an affair. But remember, men can be distant for many reasons, so don’t go jumping to conclusions. But if he is being unfaithful, he will most likely be nervous, whether it be out of guilt or paranoia.

    *Has he been snide to you in front of company? He may try to justify their infidelity by convincing himself you’re the bad guy.[2]

    Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 1Bullet7

    **Has he been mentioning a female acquaintance or colleague a lot more lately?[2] This may mean he has a crush, whether he knows it or not. The good news is, if he still mentions her to you, he may not have acted on those feelings yet, since they’re still tantalizing him. If he did the deed already, he’d probably never mention her again.

    Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 2

    Ask the woman that he’s having an affair with, if you know or suspect who she is. Most women will sympathize and tell the truth. Oftentimes, this is exactly what she wants—for you to know. She may want you to leave him, so she can have your man all to herself. Many women are offended to be somebody’s secret, or second choice.

    Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 3


    3. Ask him. He may not answer honestly, but you can still infer by his reaction whether he is hiding something.
    If he reacts defensively or nervously, and fervently denies all accusations, he's hiding something.

    If he "doesn’t dignify your question with an answer," it’s usually because he doesn’t want to lie to you, but he really doesn’t want to tell the truth. If instead of answering, he asks, “How could you think that? Don’t you trust me?” he’s probably just avoiding your question.

    Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 3Bullet2

    If he comes clean, it is for one of two reasons. Either he is telling you because A) he wants to leave you, or B) the guilt of the affair is killing him. If he breaks down and cries, or keeps his head down when he tells you, it’s because he’s ashamed and he regrets his actions. Ask him what his intentions are in telling you, whether he wants to work things out with you or not.

    METHOD 2. How to confront him

    1. Prepare yourself for every possibility beforehand. “Cheating” isn’t always black and white. Depending on how many times he’s cheated on you, how long he’s been unfaithful, how invested he is in his affair(s) and how many women he’s been with, you may be able to salvage your relationship.
      • If he’s exclusive to one mistress and he sees her frequently, and buys her things, and does romantic things with her, this means he’s in love with her and your relationship is over.
        Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 4Bullet1
      • If he’s slipped up several times, but always with different women who he cares nothing about and hasn’t kept in touch with, he may be fixable, because this means you still give him something other women don’t, if you’re the only one he’s with repeatedly. But you will have to make a change if you want him to change his ways, or it won’t work, and he’ll fall back into old habits.
        Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 4Bullet2
      • If he only cheated once, and it was out of character, and he sincerely, utterly regrets it, he deserves a second chance.
        Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 4Bullet3
    2. Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 5
      Decide what you consider a deal-breaker. Where will you draw the line? When you find out how seriously he’s been cheating, at what point will you be through with him? How willing are you to forgive him and move on?
    3. Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 6
      Realize that you may be partly to blame. Obviously, his actions are inexcusable, but they may be the result of something deeper, and you may be part of it. Ask yourself if you’ve been driving him away. Maybe you’ve been snapping at him, putting too much pressure on the relationship, getting serious too quickly, or not getting serious enough. It could be any number of things, but you may not be satisfying all his needs, and if you want to work things out, there may be aspects of yourself you have to change.
    4. Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 7
      Confront him calmly. If you approach him angrily, he will immediately be on the defensive, and he won’t be rational or honest with you.
      • Be as understanding as possible. Let him be heard. Listening to him may relieve some of the tension that led him to betray you in the first place.
    5. Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 8
      Ask him specifically how much he cheated.
      • How many times?
      • How many women?
      • How frequently?
      • How long has it been going on?
      • Has he cheated in past relationships?
      • How serious is he about these women/this woman?
    6. Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 9
      Ask him what his intentions are with you. Does he want to stay with you? Or was cheating his easy way out of this relationship? Is he in love with someone else?
    7. Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 10
      Decide if you are willing to work through this, or if you're through. Should you stay or should you go?
      • If in your heart, you can't fully forgive him, and you don't think you'll be happy if you stay with him, it isn't worth your misery to try to work through it, no matter how much you wish you could.
      • If you believe in him and trust him to stay faithful from hereon, you should give him a second chance.

      METHOD 3

      Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 11

      Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 13


      Cheating can be avoided altogether if you know what causes it. Avoid doing the following:

      1. Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 14
        Give him space. Don't smother him. If you're clingy or possessive over him, he may push you away. If he feels trapped with you, he may resort to cheating as a means of freeing himself.
      2. Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 15
        Satisfy him sexually. If he doesn't feel his needs are being met, he will find a way to meet them, and if you can't satisfy those needs, he'll find someone else who will.
        • Be adventurous in bed and open to do the things he wants to do, as long as his demands are reasonable.
        • Boring or repetitive sex can drive him to find somebody else to satisfy his urges.
        • Genuinely enjoying sex makes all the difference. If he thinks he isn't satisfying you, this may cause him to reassure his ego that he is good in bed by satisfying someone else.
      3. Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 16
        Be careful not to play the blame game with him. Blaming and accusing him for every little thing will push him to seek acceptance elsewhere, not just sexual acceptance, but emotional as well.
      4. Image titled Deal With a Cheating Boyfriend Step 17
        Don't partake in power struggles. Love is not a competition, so don't try to win. Dismissing everything he says or being condescending with him will cause him to retaliate.

    In 2016, many politicians became famous for things other than what they were elected to do: be public servants.

    From whistleblowing to publicity stunts to court cases that had more plot twists than a Nollywood movie, the transition from the halls of power to the spotlight has been a smooth one for many politicians.

    Here are seven politicians who became celebrities in 2016.

    Bukola Saraki

    Saraki, former governor of Kwara state, further grew into his role as senate president in 2016, but his trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal kept him in the public eye as often as possible.

    On the party front, Saraki’s relationship with other leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was often speculated upon. Series of reports, exclusives, conspiracy theories emanated regarding his loyalty to the ruling party.

    Abdulminin Jibrin

    The name of Abdulmumin Jibrin, a lawmaker representing Kiru/Bebeji federal constituency in Kano, became synonymous with budget padding.

    Through Facebook and Twitter, Jibrin embarked on a weekly cycle of allegations, suggesting that Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the federal house of assembly, padded Nigeria’s budget with N4bn.

    Jibrin was suspended by the House over his role in the budget padding saga. He subsequently left Nigeria for London, where he vowed to remain in exile until he could safely return home.

    The lawmaker claimed that there were numerous assassination attempts on his life.

    Lai Mohammed

    The information minister more often than not drew the ire of Nigerians on the stance of the federal government on several issues.

    One of his most controversial comments was in response to the issue of unemployment. The minister said, “dressing masquerades can create a thousand jobs per week”.

    The comment infuriated many Nigerians who felt Mohammed was trivialising the issue of unemployment.

    Dino Melaye

    The senator representing Kogi west was famously in the eye of the storm when he clashed with Remi Tinubu, a fellow senator and wife of Bola Tinubu, APC national leader.

    Melaye was alleged to have said he would beat up and impregnate Tinubu. He subsequently denied this, stating that he could not impregnate her as she had ‘arrived’ menopause.

    The senator also continued to flaunt his collection of exotic cars and lavish lifestyle on social media.

    Solomon Dalung

    The minister of sport was guilty of occasional blunders and goofs throughout 2016.

    Dalung irked Nigerians with controversial, sometimes embarrassing comments, most of which he said were misquoted and misleading.

    He made the headlines almost once per month. In December alone, he was heavily criticised over the handling of the Super Falcons team and officials after winning the African Women championship.
