Ghanaian actor Majid Michel reportedly flies out to undergo Throat Surgery

Ghanaian media is reporting that its famous actor- turned preacher, Majid Michel has been flown out of Ghana to undergo throat surgery. Although the exact country he was taken to for the operation, hasn’t been revealed.

The news of the surgery comes after Majid revealed in an interview last year that two years ago, he noticed his voice had started ‘breaking’.

“Over two years ago, I was travelling and then suddenly my voice started breaking and it’s been like this for over two years now”, he said.

He also added that he had been to the hospital for a check up, but was told there was absolutely nothing wrong with his throat.

“I don’t know what is wrong with my voice. I have checked at Korle-bu and 37 Military hospitals and they all said there is nothing wrong with my voice. They have checked my throat and everything is perfect,” he said.

Applications are invited for fully-funded PhD studentship at The Bournemouth University starting on January 2019 for 48 months. The PhD Studentships are open to UK, EU and international students.

While the PhD researcher will be based at Bournemouth University, there will be opportunities of internships at partner organisations (e.g. Nottingham, York, Ulster, Cambridge, Roehampton, Eduardo Mondlane), intended to enhance research capacity and skills and promote integration within the project.

A Tokyo politician has paid £2Million to get the virginity of this pretty 23-year-old model (Photos)

A Tokyo politician has paid £2Million to get the virginity of this pretty 23-year-old model (Photos)

A government official from Tokyo has supposedly paid a sum of £2Million to have the virginity of a 23-year-old model after she put it up for sale. 

 ‘My mum did everything for me, now it is my turn. I want her to be proud of me.’

The beautiful model whose name was identified as Mahbuba Mammadzada from Azerbaijanmade the headlines a year ago after she declared her choice to sell her virginity, saying she needed to make her mom ‘proud’. 
Mahbuba who is a standout amongst Azerbaijan’s best models, said she needs the money to pay for a house for her mum, finance her college degree abroad, and venture to the far corners of the planet. 
As indicated by online office Cinderella Escorts, the winning bidder is an anonymous ‘politician from Tokyo’, with a London legal lawyer and a Munich football player coming in at second and third place respectively. 
The office additionally uncovered that the winning bidder will most likely have a specialist to confirm if Miss Mammadzada is still a virgin yet before sleeping with her at a hotel in Germany.

Nigerian man jailed for pretending to be a white woman to defraud a white man

Justice Watilat Ibrahim of the Federal High Court 2, sitting in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital has convicted and sentenced one Agboola Taiwo (a.k.a Mary Caesar) to four months imprisonment for an offense bordering on impersonation, and contrary to Section 22(3) (b) and punishable under Section 22(4) of the Cyber Crimes (Prohibition, Prevention Etc) Act, 2015.

The convict, who was prosecuted by the Ibadan Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, was arraigned in court on December 10, 2018.

The charge that earned Taiwo jail, reads: “that you Agboola Taiwo (a.k.a Mary Ceaser) sometime in November, 2018, at Awa-Ijebu, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court, fraudulently impersonated by presenting yourself to be Katherine Bishop, a white female via your mail sent to one James, a United States of America citizen through your email address: lonelydiva2k18@gmail.com and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 22 (3) (b) and punishable under Section 22 (4) of the Cyber Crimes (Prohibition, Prevention Etc) Act, 2015.

He pleaded guilty and opted for a plea bargain, prompting the prosecuting counsel, Mabas Mabur to pray the court to convict him accordingly.

He was convicted and sentenced to four months jail term by Justice Ibrahim with effect from the date of arrest.

The convict also forfeited his two phones to the Federal Government of Nigeria, being part of the proceeds of his fraudulent act.

PhD Position for International Students at Anton Dohrn Zoological Station Naples, Italy, 2018

Man’s corpse discovered in Rivers after bleeding to death during election (Graphic photo)

Another corpse has just been discovered in the Abonnema community in Akuku-Toru Local Council Rivers State, following the violence that rocked the area in the just concluded presidential and national assembly elections.

It was gathered that the victim tried to save his life but unfortunately bled to death. Sources in the town claimed that over 20 persons were killed during the disturbances between rival political thugs that brought the polls to an abrupt end.

The military reportedly laid siege to all waterways, thus checking the movement in and out of the island locality.

Two PhD Fellowships in Lanthanide Solution Chemistry at University of Copenhagen in Denmark, 2018

I am very grateful to the over 15 million citizens who voted for me – President Buhari

Moments ago, President Muhammadu Buhari received his certificate of return as ‘president-elect’ from INEC alongside his VP, Yemi Osinbajo.

At the ceremony, President Buhari said, ‘I am grateful to God for sparing our lives to witness another milestone in Nigeria’s democratic development namely conclusion of the Presidential election in an overwhelmingly peaceful manner’.

See the rest of his statement below;

I wish, Mr Chairman, to congratulate all the Presidential candidates and their teams on a hard-fought campaign. We may have had different views during the campaign, but the one thing most of us have in common is love of our country and our desire to improve conditions for Nigerians.

From the comments of several observers both local and foreign, it is obvious that the elections were both free and fair.

Now that the elections are over, and a winner declared, we must all see it as a victory for Nigeria, our dear country. That was why I encouraged my teeming supporters, in a speech I read earlier today, not to gloat. Our God-given victory is enough cause for joy, without deriding those who were in the opposition. All Nigerians, going forward, must stand in brotherhood, for a bright and fulfilling future.

I therefore want to assure that we will continue to engage all parties that have the best interest of Nigerians at heart. Our Government will remain inclusive and our doors will remain open. That is the way to build the country of our dream; safe, secure, prosperous, and free of impunity and primitive accumulation by those entrusted with public offices.

The hard work to deliver a better Nigeria continues, building on the foundations of peace, rule of law and opportunities for all. We will roll up our sleeves afresh, and give it our all. We have no other motive than to serve Nigeria with our hearts and might, and build a nation which we and generations to come can be proud of.

I am very grateful to the over 15 million citizens who voted for me, those who contributed in many ways in the running of our successful campaign, and those at home and abroad who expressed confidence in me and the APC Government. I thank you all.

I can assure that you will see a country moving to the Next Level, as we consolidate on our fundamental areas of securing the country, reviving the economy, and fighting corruption. Many other focal areas, as stated in our campaign manual, will be added, to the good things we plan for our country.

Let me pay tribute here to those who lost their lives either through accidents or mindless violence during the course of these elections. My heart and thoughts are with the families of the victims. May God comfort and give them the fortitude to bear the loss.

Election is not war, and should never be seen as a do or die affair. I pray that we all accept this democratic approach to elections, however contentious.

Thank you all and may God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
