IN THE NEWS: Breaking News! Bomb Scare Causes Chaos In Abuja

Panic broke out in Abuja yesterday morning after a car, which was believed to contain explosives, was discovered in the Nyanya area.

The Peugeot 406 vehicle was noticed by residents of the community who then fled to escape any resulting explosion.

A witness told Premium Times:

“The driver just parked the car and left in a hurry prompting soldiers nearby to be suspicious and people in traffic on seeing the soldiers surrounding the car began to run in different directions,”

According to reports, the car in question is currently being searched by soldiers.

You all will recall that many lives were lost in Nyanya earlier this year after 2 explosions occurred in April and May which makes Abuja residents more security conscious.

LYRICS

I am sniping everybody here, nobody’s escaping
If you’re willing to take your shots I better discover the meaning is “taping”
The illest rapper ever seen yeah u know me
Ur a clown with your ass your competition is BOVI
Fights out when they bring d mics out
Nice style? Oh damn even though its quite sour
I’m that rapper, most u rappers secretly
Admire cos when it comes to these beats am Quagmire
I’m talking bout “gigitty goo” damn
Guess I be giving to them
If you’re ready for war be ready for chores
You’re MAKING a new STEM
Guess who’s playing stem

The song urges us, in these present times, to live together as one, irrespective of our differences in tribe, tongue, and religion. The main message of “Let’s Live Together” is that our diversity is in fact a source of strength.

ABJCM LIFESTYLE: Halima Abubakar Explains Why She’s Still Unmarried

Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, has finally revealed her reasons for still being a single lady despite the fact that age is not quite on her side.

In a weekend chat with Encomium magazine, Halima talked about the ups and downs of her acting career, and more importantly, why she isn’t wearing a wedding ring yet.

Read excerpts of the interview below:

There has been a long standing question that you’re yet to give us a definite answer (cuts in)…

What is the issue?

The issue of when you’re going to settle down?

Will I ask a man to marry me? Is it not when you see the man that you want to settle down with that you can decide to marry? You can’t just settle down with anybody because you need to marry. I don’t want to go into marriage and rush out of it. There is a lot of mistrust and we also have so many irresponsible men so to speak. There are lots and lots of liars among men out there. And if they meet a girl that really loves them, they won’t know because they are used to lying.

So, they think any they meet is also a lair like them. Or if you omit one magnificent information about yourself, if they now get to know later in a negative way from another person, it’s another mistrust. The day you even say the truth and nothing but absolute truth, they won’t believe you omitted something before it came out, and it’s not like it’s a dangerous thing. But just because you forgot to include the information when you’re chatting with them, it will now become a big problem. A sort of mistrust will develop from there. And when a man is monitoring you, definitely, there is no trust in that relationship, and nobody will want to be in a marriage where there is no trust.

Would you say it has been difficult finding the right man?

Really, I have not been in too many relationships, that’s one. Number two, even if I say that, a lot of people will click on that and say it’s a lie. And I am a loyal person. I don’t like somebody who pretends to be what he’s not. I am not in a hurry the way people are in a hurry on my behalf.

That’s because at the end of the day, I am the one that will live with the man not them. And I wouldn’t want to cry to sleep. I wouldn’t want a man who will make me cry every day, instead of making me happy. Left to me, I will do everything to make him happy but is he really going to reciprocate that?

It has to be a balanced relationship but there is nothing like that.

Now, are you still hoping for a responsible man to come?

I am not hoping. It’s going to happen when it will happen. I am not searching for a husband. So, don’t quote me on that. I am just going to tell you, and as usual I don’t talk about any relationship. I am just giving you a general insight of what life is about.

Not long ago, you travelled to the US, what was the purpose of the trip?

I was ill, and was admitted in the hospital. But my super mentor just advised me that I needed a rest and I should go and rest. And that’s exactly what I went to do. But before I knew, as usual, bloggers had posted stories about my trip abroad.

Like?

I actually went to make an inquiry at New York Academy to see if I could do a course there. So, I was just there for a week and came back to continue my career. But before I came back, they had been posting that I went to get married to a US based lover.

And you’re sure you didn’t go there to meet a man?

For what? When you have a boyfriend, you have a boyfriend. It should be the guy and no one else. Let’s assume a boyfriend gives you the money to travel abroad, you will now go and meet another man there. That makes no sense. I am not in support of things like that because I know God is watching. And a day will come that I will pay heavily for that silly mistake. Not that I am saying I am perfect, I have many flaws but I am a human being, I can’t be perfect. But I am not in support of promiscuity.

INTERVIEW: My New Album “G2G” Is To Endorse President Goodluck Jonathan – Eedris Abdulkareem

In an interview with Channels TV’s Sunrise tv show yesterday, came out to say that his upcoming album, titled “G2G” is about endorsing the president, Goodluck Jonathan, and asking Nigerians to stop attacking the President and his administration.

He also added that he believes, GEJ has done well for Nigeria, and will continue to do so. See the full script of what he said:

“Since I was born a Nigerian growing up, I have always known that propaganda is the issue and they just share the money up and down. This Lagos-Ibadan expressway has been there for fifteen years by the former Minister of Works, Baba Tony Anenih and they didn’t do anything .Goodluck is doing that road. That is the Federal government road, He is working on it. Our airport has been reformed. Thirdly our agricultural sector, farmers don’t get their fertilizer directly but today they get their fertilizer, fertilizer is now a big business. So it is important we say all these things because most people don’t know. We all know that the insecurity is propaganda. “

“I was was the first person that came out in the rally when Pres. Goodluck Jonathan increased the fuel price at Ojota. I have never seen Goodluck before but what I know is going on with that guy is a big propaganda and they should leave him alone let him work. When I sang jagajaga, did anybody pay me? If opposition paid me, by now I go don get plenty billions. So its simple, the facts must be told. When I sang Nigeria jagajaga, it was 12 years ago and this is 12 years later, so why is everybody blaming the poor guy? because he is from Niger Delta or because the presidency has left the north?” he said.
