URU EKE SET TO RELEASE HER FIRST MOVIE, 'REMEMBER ME'


 Nollywood actress, Uru Eke, is set to release her first movie, Remember Me. The movie themed on corruption, projects the issue of corruption concerning illegal land leases- how companies go into a community and take over their resources, displacing the people and not offering them anywhere else to live, all in a bid to take control/exploit what is in the land...
A typical example is the village, Membe in Bayelsa, where the oil was taken and the people are impoverished without giving back, they sit on so much wealth yet have none.

THE LAST MOMENTS OF ORONTO DOUGLAS


He was diagnosed with cancer in 2008 and had been battling the disease since then with “encouraging signs” of improvement, family sources told TheCable.

At some stage, he was thought to have survived as the cancer went into remission, but he suffered a relapse in 2011. He had been visibly sick in the last one year, losing weight dramatically and sometimes needing a wheelchair to move around in the last three months. Douglas, a trusted aide of Jonathan, travelled to the US in March for his regular check-up and was told by his doctors that he could not survive further medication.

“They told him he would die in a matter of days. That was on March 18, 2015. He had to choose between dying in the US and returning to Nigeria. He decided to return home,” the source said. He was said to be in high spirits up till the moments leading to his death, which occurred at 4:58am on Thursday at the State House clinic, Abuja.

SKINCARE TALK WITH BOLA AKINBOADE-BELLO: HOW TO EXFOLIATE SKIN


Exfoliation is the cosmetic practice of removing dead skin cells from the epidermis, the top layer of the skin. Your skin can shed 30,000 to 40,000 dead cells per minute naturally; however, many people need exfoliation products to help reduce acne and get smooth skin. Exfoliation practices differ for the body and the face. Find out how to exfoliate skin.

BODY EXFOLIATION
Buy a natural bristled brush. If you want to exfoliate outside of the shower, you can use circular motions with a long-handled, natural bristled brush. This brush is available in the cosmetics section of most box stores, as well as in natural food stores. Start with your legs and move slowly up your body. Always brush in a circular motion in a small area before moving onto the next area. Work up toward your chest, then brush your back and arms.

Buy a loofah or exfoliating glove from a drugstore. These products are made with natural sponge and help to exfoliate the skin in the shower. These products are not suggested for use on the face.

FULL DETAILS OF THE MISSING KIDS IN LAGOS


A nanny employed by a middle class Sulurele-Lagos family has absconded with the three kids she was employed to care for. The nanny identified as Mary Akinloye (possibly a phoney name), had worked for the Orekoya family, who reside in the Lawanson district of Surulere, for barely a day before she took the kids away on the 8th April and hasn’t been seen since then. The missing kids are Aderomola, (11 months), Adedamola (4 years) and Demola (6 years). Reports of the missing children have gone viral on the social media since it became public knowledge.

The young nanny who claimed to be 23 years old, was contracted via the website OLX, a retail sales and service marketplace. The mother of the missing kids, Adebisi told local newspaper, Punch, that she put up a post for a new nanny on the website because the main family nanny did not show up for work after her annual leave.

HOW TO APPLY AN EVERYDAY MAKEUP IN 5 MINUTE


 Is timing makeup hard? Do you always run out of time? If yes, this is the guide for you!
  •  Wash your face.
  • Apply a hydrating cream, moisturizer and primer. Your face will thank you later.
  • Dab some concealer under your eyes. Always apply concealer in an upside down triangle shape so that it blends in with your skin more. Do not overdo, or you will do the opposite: you will accentuate the area you are trying to conceal.
  • Apply foundation or BB cream.
  • Define your brows. But not too much.

AN OPEN LETTER TO BUHARI ON HIS ELECTION AS NIGERIA’S NEXT PRESIDENT- TONY USIDAMEN


Dear President-in-Waiting,

Congratulations on your victory at the polls. I didn’t vote for you. As a matter of fact, I campaigned vigorously against your emergence as President, and really hoped that your bid would fail yet again.

My reasons are not far-fetched: First, I thought that since you subverted the wish of Nigerians when you took over power from a democratically elected government in a coup d’état back in 1983, you didn’t deserve to be President under the same system of governance you loathed.

Secondly, with the gross violation of human rights that took place under your watch, and the sense of injustice against certain persons, groups or regions, I thought that you hadn’t shown genuine remorse for your actions, and cared nothing about healing past wounds, which remain in our national psyche.

NEW PRESIDENT EMERGES IN NIGERIA-GENERAL MUHAMMADU BUHARI


General Muhammadu Buhari, a former military ruler and candidate of the opposition party, All Progressives Congress (APC), has won the Presidential election conducted on Saturday March 28, 2015 in Nigeria. Buhari won the heated and keenly contested vote by at least 3 million votes. The APC candidate got the highest number of votes in 21 states while Mr. Jonathan prevailed in 15 states and Abuja. After three previous failed shots at the presidency, Muhammadu Buhari is finally moving into Aso Rock, Nigeria’s presidential palace, as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Jonathan’s gesture and defeat is hugely significant and symbolic, as it has never happened before in Nigeria’s history for a sitting president to be defeated in an election.
