President Obama to receive Buhari

United Nations General Assembly
UNITED STATES -  President Barack Obama, will meet President Muhammadu Buhari on the sidelines of the annual United Nations General Assembly gathering this week.

President Obama will discuss with Buhari on US support for security and economic challenges in the country, as well the government’s efforts to defeat Boko Haram.

Nigeria and the US have pending agreement over the sale of US military equipment, especially attack helicopters to fight the insurgents.

White House Deputy National Security Adviser, Ben Rhodes, added that Obama would hold separate sessions with Iraqi Prime Minister, Haider Al-Abadi; and Colombian President, Juan Manuel Santos.

Rhodes, however, said that Obama will not meet Philippines President, Rodrigo Duterte, who recently insulted the US President.

The White House cancelled a meeting with Duterte during Obama’s recent trip to Laos for a regional summit after Duterte insulted him.

Duterte, who also slammed the UN and threatened to quit the world body after it criticised killings in its war on drugs, has not been scheduled to attend the General Assembly meeting.

Duterte turned down a meeting with UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, at the Laos summit.

Meanwhile, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Mr Femi Adesina, said in a statement that Buhari would deliver Nigeria’s statement at the opening of the general debate of the Assembly on “The Sustainable Development Goals: A Universal Push to Transform Our World.”

Adesina stated that the President would also attend a high-level summit to be hosted by the UN, on “large movements of refugees and migrants.”

He said, “The summit, which is the first of its kind, is expected to come up with a blueprint for a better international response to enhance the protection of migrants and refugees.’’

Important Features to Consider Before Purchasing the New iPhone 7

iphone 7
Apple, famed for sophisticated phones, is at it again with the launch of the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus which are the mobile phones of the moment. As expected, it was launched by Apple with so much pomp and pageantry and fans are very excited and look forward to laying their hands on this gadget.

Some of the key features of the phones are: Capacity- 32 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB, colour-Rose Gold, Gold, Silver, Black, Jet Black, Weight- 138 grams (iPhone 7) 188 grams (iPhone 7 plus), Display 4.7 (iPhone 7) 5.5 (iPhone 7 plus), water and dust resistant and 12 megapixel camera.

In addition, both phones have nifty processors, improved cameras, and durable battery life. However, there are certain things or features that may discourage you from buying these iPhones. Jumia Travel Africa’s No 1 hotel booking identify some them.

No radical design changes

If you use the iPhone 6 series, you probably do not need to worry about upgrading to the new iPhones. Why? Because there are no huge differences in design. The only noticeable changes are that iPhone 7 and 7 plus have bottom stereo speakers and 2 back cameras (iPhone 7 plus). Beyond this, there are no major design changes.

No Headphone jack

Apple has gotten rid of the headphone jack. Now, you can only use wireless earphones with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Hence, you may be unable to use the earphones for other mobile devices.

Nothing special about water and dust resistant

Thankfully, iPhone is finally water resistant. It may not catch the fancy of Apple fans because water and dust resistant is already a key feature in the Samsung Galaxy S7 for over several models.

It can easily shatter

The iPhone glass screen is very fragile which means it can easily shatter when it drops. Meanwhile, other mobile phones are shatter proof even if iPhones are virus and hack proof.


The new iPhones cost $649 (approximately N270,000). And considering the economic recession, buying these phones may not be on your priority list. Unfortunately, installment payment options are not available in Nigeria.

Kim is finished, nothing left!!!!

Shameless Kim
Kim Kardashian is becoming the master of wearing clothes that pretty much leave her naked.

The mother-of-two has worked hard to get her body in shape, so it's no real surprise that she's enjoying showing it all off.

Kim stepped out with husband Kanye West in Miami on Saturday in a shocking LBD just hours after posing naked once again on social media to show off her 'fake tan'.

Rocking a plunging bodysuit beneath the sheer dress, Kim left little to the imagination as her breasts threatened to spill out.

Watford condemn Manchester United to third defeat in a row

English Premier League
Juan Zuniga scored his first Watford goal since joining on loan from Napoli
Manchester United suffered their third defeat in a week as late goals from Juan Zuniga and Troy Deeney gave Watford a deserved win.

The Hornets led when Etienne Capoue converted Daryl Janmaat's cut-back, only for Marcus Rashford to level from close range.

But substitute Zuniga powered in with seven minutes left for the hosts.

Deeney then scored a penalty in injury-time after Marouane Fellaini fouled Zuniga in the box.

Watford 3-1 Manchester United
