D'banj gives Naeto C 2012 Porsche Cayenne as wedding gift

The singer presented a 2012 Porsche Cayenne to Naeto C at his wedding reception today and some people are saying he did it on behalf of someone else. No, he didn't! D'banj bought the brand new 2012 Porsche Cayenne himself and presented it to Naeto, who is one of his best friends and brother in the music industry, as a wedding gift.

I don't want to speculate on the amount because people from D'banj's camp refused to tell me, but from findings on Google, the car is worth between 12million and 15million. I know it's hard to believe that someone will buy such a gift for another person, but that was D'banj's gift to Naeto C. Guess the kokomaster has a large heart! God continue to bless him!

Patience Jonathan wants presidents' wives roles included in the constitution

Our dear first lady is canvassing for the inclusion of roles of presidents’ wives in the constitution. According to her, the inclusion would enable First Ladies get retirement benefits along with their husbands when they leave office.

What she said yesterday after she was sworn-in as Permanent Secretary in the Bayelsa State Civil Service
We the wives of political office holders, if our names are not in the constitution and our husbands retire with benefits, the Constitution amendment committee should also look into the issue of wives of political appointees. We should be included in the Constitution so that we too can retire with benefits. With that we can enjoy our career."
Enjoy their career? OK!

This movie with a galaxy of stars like Joke Silva, Alex Usifo, Patience Ozokwor, Zulu Adigwe amongst others, is intended to educate people on  the ills that the children and the society face when child neglect, child abuse and infringement upon the rights of children, With their education can cause them within social circle, these acts are still in practice even till date.
