President Buhari is not a woman hater, says Minister

ABUJA, NIGERIA - The Minister of finance, Kemi Adeosun has spoken up for her boss, President Buhari, following the bashing he received for saying his wife, Aisha Buhari belongs to the kitchen.

Buhari slammed his wife for alleging that some powerful people who did not work for him to come to power, have taken over his government.

Adeosun said Buhari is not a woman hater, adding that the presence of women on his cabinet is an attestation to the fact.

According to her, “I think the fact that he has appointed women into very senior positions says his view about women. I work with him very closely and I don’t see any misogynistic tendencies in him; in fact if for anything, I think he is very much in favour of women.”

The minister also denied reports alleging that she stated that the country will come out of recession in six months.

She said “I didn’t say six months, I have refused to give a date and what I have said consistently is that we have to invest in infrastructure to get growth back again. Who is going to predict when we are going to come out of recession? It is a function of many things. It is a function of global oil prices and how the economy responds to the spending stimulus. What we have said consistently is that if we stick to the plan that growth will return.

“We are doing the Affordable Housing Programme and the contractors have just moved to site this week and that is aimed at addressing the cost of living issue.

“We understand the peoples pain and what we are trying to do is spend our money in a way that addresses that pain.”

Speaking on what the government is doing to put Nigeria’s economy back on its feet, Adeosun added that “We have released about N720 billion in about four months and that is the highest ever and we are still going to do more in investing in infrastructure because that is what has held Nigeria back.

“For a number of years and almost for a whole generation we were moving in the wrong direction depending on oil, we didn’t invest in infrastructure. And everyone has known about the power challenges in Nigeria, the road challenges, the health challenges and the only thing that was just keeping us up was the high oil price and the high oil price has been stripped away and we have been laid bare, so it is going to take a bit of time to recover.”

Meanwhile, the Deputy Minority Whip of the Senate, Senator Biodun Olujimi, said Buhari’s comment about his wife reflects the composition of his government and the disdain to which women are held by the President.

Chelsea humiliate Manchester United on Mourinho's return to Stamford Bridge

                                 Chelsea beat Manchester United

Jose Mourinho was humiliated on his return to Chelsea as his former club blew away his Manchester United side at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues, who sacked Mourinho for a second time last year, led after just 30 seconds when Pedro capitalised on slack defending to roll in.

Gary Cahill smashed in the second after United allowed Eden Hazard's corner to bounce in their box.

United offered little sign of making a comeback, falling further behind when Hazard drilled in a precise 15-yard strike.

N'Golo Kante skipped around a static defence to slot in and seal victory as Chelsea moved within a point of Premier League leaders Manchester City.

The comprehensive win lifted the Blues above Tottenham into fourth, with just one point separating the top five.

United stay seventh as the gap between them and the early pacesetters widens to five points, with almost a quarter of the season gone.

Tanya, 22, said: “They should realise that not everyone has a B cup. Some of us are bigger than that.

“I’m not fat but the safety bars and seats are not designed for large-breasted women.

“It was really embarrassing having to be chucked off a ride and do a walk of shame past everyone. It ruined my day and I wasn’t even offered a refund.”

GettyImages-93241382

A male escort has spoken on the career of being paid to have sex .

The Australian man, 29, mainly based in London, said he preferred clients not "conventionally considered attractive" because he prioritised cleanliness, enjoyment and respect for his boundaries.

"I associate all of the above more with older, overweight, bald etc," he says.

He revealed the strangest request after 10 years in the business was a male client who wanted to stand clad only in undies while he kicked him in the testicles with shoes on.

“I can kick hard," the escort reportedly said.

"Anyway, he could take it.”

In a Reddit discussion, he opened up about his career as a love-maker, detailing how he also attends dinners, shows, casinos and holidays with clients as an escort.

He says most of his clients are bi or bi curious men but he also sees couples.

And many of them have wives, husbands, boyfriends or girlfriends. Some times they're single women. Read in full

Donald Trump threatens to sue all sexual misconduct accusers as another woman comes forward

US-Republican-presidential-candidate-Don

Donald Trump has threatened to sue all the women who have come forward accusing him of sexual misconduct.

Trump was speaking at a rally in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Saturday when he said he will be taking action once the campaign is over.

"Every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign," he said. "Total fabrication. The events never happened. Never. All of these liars will be sued after the election is over."

He said a "simple phone call" to news outlets "gets them wall-to-wall coverage with virtually no fact-checking ever."

The Republican hopeful also suggested Hillary Clinton's campaign had something to do with the women's allegations.

He continued: "It was probably the (Democratic National Committee) and Hillary's campaign who put forward these liars with their fabricated stories.

"But we'll probably find out later through litigation, which we're so looking forward to."

A number of accusers came forward after a video surfaced showed Trump bragging about groping women and making lewd comments.

One of the woman's lawyers replied to Trump in a series of tweets on Saturday afternoon.

Lisa Bloom, who represents Jill Harth who has accused Trump of making sexual advances on her on two seperate occasions, wrote: "If Trump sues accusers we then have subpoena power to require not only Trump but all his enablers to appear for depositions. A field day."

It comes as an 11th woman came forward accusing him of sexual misconduct.

Porn star Jessica Drake claims the Republican presidential candidate offered her $10,000 and access to his private jet to come to his penthouse hotel room following a golf event in 2006. More

SHOCKING: £148m lottery winner evicts disabled best friend over £250 rent row

Kym-Mills-with-her-daughter-Keera-Mills

The treat friends give will determine the level and commitment of that friendship.
When their shops stood side-by-side they were the best of friends.

They scrimped and saved to go on ­holidays and offered each other help and advice if times were tough.

Back then, £250 here and there was the difference between sinking and swimming for the likes of Kym Mills and her fellow traders Adrian and Gillian Bayford.

Until 2012, that is – when the Bayfords scooped £148million on the Euromillions .

Life changed forever, the Bayfords went on to become landlords for Kym and her daughter but the friendship has turned toxic in a row over a monthly rent rise... of £250.

Now disabled Kym has been evicted from a house owned by 45-year-old Adrian , who split from Gillian, 43, in 2013.
Dispute-between-Adrian-Bayford-and-Kym-Mills

Yet it would take barely 30 minutes for £148million to generate interest of £250.

In an interview today Kym also claims they fell out big time after she helped sell items from his 90-acre estate.

She said: “I’m just hurt – they were my best friends. And at the end of the day they’ve got it all and I’ve lost everything. I wish none of this had ever happened.

“Life was so much simpler before. This money split my friends up and ruined the relationship we had. I’ve got stuck in the middle of it and it’s not fair.” Read More

President Buhari steps up to end feud with Tinubu after secret meetings

Tags
Tinubu-Buhari

The prolonged cold war between President Muhammadu Buhari and his erstwhile close political associate and South-West political strongman, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, may soon come to an end.

Reliable sources within the party told SUNDAY PUNCH during the week that the two sides began planning to bury the hatchet during a recent meeting that President Buhari held with some of Tinubu’s loyalists in Aso Rock.

The President had met with the trio of Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, former Osun governor, Chief Bisi Akande, and Senator Olusola Adeyeye last week Sunday. The sources also said both parties agreed that the President needed to take some confidence-boosting measures to restore Tinubu’s faith in him.

The two men reportedly fell out following what Tinubu and his loyalists saw as attempts to diminish his contributions to President Buhari’s victory at the 2015 poll and erode his political capital in his South-West base. Some supporters of the former governor had also complained that the President rejected Tinubu’s ministerial nominees, and worked against the ex-Lagos governor’s candidates in the Kogi elections and Ondo governorship primary, among other ills.

A reliable source who was privy to the events that culminated in the meeting said its seeds were planted during President Buhari’s three-day state visit to Germany. Prior to that time, Buhari and Tinubu had not had any private communication in a while. But the source said the President contacted Akande, who is one of Tinubu’s closest associates and a former Interim Chairman of the APC, asking him to see him in Aso Rock.

The President’s call reportedly came barely 48 hours after the controversial interview the President’s wife, Aisha, granted the British Broadcasting Corporation. In the interview which went viral, the president’s wife accused her husband of neglecting those who helped him to power in 2015. Mrs. Buhari also threatened not to support her husband in 2019 if the President did not change tack.

Sources said although both men’s relationship began to sour almost as soon as Buhari won the election, it deteriorated when Professor John Paden, in his book titled ‘Muhammadu Buhari: Challenges of Leadership,’ claimed that Tinubu was against the emergence of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo as Vice President.  Both Buhari and Tinubu were present at the book launch.

Insiders say this did not go down well with Tinubu and his men, as the All Progressives Congress national leader’s camp saw it as yet another attempt by the President and his men to reduce his contributions to the emergence of the APC government and also rewrite history.

Shortly after, Tinubu in a scathing open letter asked the National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, to step down, after alleging that the chairman doctored results of the Ondo State APC governorship primary. Odigie-Oyegun, a former Edo State governor, who had been cautious in his initial response to Tinubu’s letter, paid a visit to Buhari in Aso Rock and thereafter launched an attack on Tinubu, describing his letter as ‘reckless.’

Seeing that he was fast losing at the centre, the APC chieftain, popularly known as the Jagaban (of Borgu), started reaching out to his political foes in the South-West in order to consolidate his influence in the region. With several meetings held, Tinubu’s most vocal critics such as Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, Sir Olanihun Ajayi, among others, began to drum up support for him publicly.

A source in the presidency told our correspondent that Akande, who cut short his trip abroad to see the President, did not mince words during the meeting.

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Akande told Buhari that despite the roles Tinubu and the South-West played in making him President, he had relegated the APC national leader and the region.

The source said, “Baba Akande told the President that they were not happy with him. He told Buhari that apart from not giving Tinubu sufficient consideration during the ministerial appointments, everything that played out in the Kogi and Ondo elections showed that the President was supporting Asiwaju’s enemies.

“Baba also said Paden’s book was a major slight and that they believed the President was aware of the content of the book before it went public. He further said some of the people around Buhari were hell-bent on ensuring that the President and Tinubu became enemies because of what they would gain from the crisis.”

The source stated that Buhari countered that he was unhappy with the acrimony in the ruling party and that he had tried to be fair to all parties. But Akande was said to have disagreed with the President in his response, and cited further examples.

Nigerian Police rescue 12-year-old girl, apprehend Kidnapper

Odele-Tosin

According to punch's report, the Ogun State Police Command has arrested a suspected kidnapper, Odele Tosin, for allegedly masterminding the kidnap of a 12-year-old girl, Eniola Oyekanmi, in the Ketu area of Lagos.

The victim was said to have been kidnapped on Friday by the gang at the Orimerunmu area of Ketu.

Policemen from Mowe Division of the command reportedly rescued Oyekanmi around 1am on Saturday in a hotel at Mowe, Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of the state.

The victim was taken to the hotel, while the gang demanded a ransom.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, told SUNDAY PUNCH that the victim was kidnapped by the gang while she was running an errand for her parents.

He said, “She was taken to a hotel in Mowe where the kidnappers kept her and started demanding a ransom. They ran out of luck when the anti-robbery team from Mowe Division, led by the Divisional Police Officer, Francis Ebohuwa, got a tip-off and stormed the hotel. One of the suspects was arrested while others escaped. The victim was rescued unhurt.”

Oyeyemi said the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, had ordered a manhunt for the members of the gang who escaped.

He said Iliyasu had also directed that the suspect be transferred to the Anti-kidnapping Unit of the command headquarters at Eleweran, Abeokuta, for further investigation.

Terminator's teen heartthrob Edward Furlong looks unrecognisable after drug addiction

Terminator2

Terminator star Edward Furlong looked remarkably different from his fresh-faced days as John Connor in the 1991 hit movie Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

The 39-year-old was joined by a female friend for a bit of shopping in Los Angeles this week.

Rocking a pair of ripped jeans and tight-fitting white Coca Cola t-shirt, the actor was sporting a bit of stubble and has kept his hair fairly long.

With heavy bags under his eyes, Furlong looked as if his personal battles have taken their toll over the years and looked fuller in the face.

He carried a plastic bag containing his purchases as he made his way around an LA mall with his female friend. More photos
