President Obama's re-election speech (must read!)

President Obama is definitely one of the best orators the world has even seen. Incredible speech. See it below...
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much. Tonight, more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward. It moves forward because of you. It moves forward because you reaffirmed the spirit that has triumphed over war and depression, the spirit that has lifted this country from the depths of despair to the great heights of hope, the belief that while each of us will pursue our own individual dreams, we are an American family and we rise or fall together as one nation and as one people.
(APPLAUSE) Tonight, in this election, you, the American people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and we know in our hearts that for the United States of America the best is yet to come. I want to thank every American who participated in this election...

“Go back to your village if you cannot obey new traffic laws” – Governor Fashola

Governor Babatunde Fashola has harsh words for Lagos residents who are not willing to abide by the state’s new traffic law: go back to your village and stay there.

However, if you chose to remain in Lagos, you must be ready to obey the new traffic law and the existing environmental laws of the state to ensure the state remains environmentally-friendly.
Fashola  disclosed this on Tuesday after visiting some on-going projects sites.
He  warned visitors and those interested in coming to live in Lagos to keep abreast with the details of these laws so as not to break them.
Mr Fashola said the state government would not fold its arms while some residents live in Lagos as if they are living in their villages.
He said, “You can’t continue to live like you are in your village here in Lagos. Life in Lagos is changing by the day. The government has spent fortune to ensure good environment, drainages, roads and transportation system. It is unfortunate some people are still living as if they are in their village.
“Please, if you can’t obey our environmental and traffic laws, stay back in your village.”

Tragedy: SAD: PHD holder lived and died on refuse dump in Lagos

It is indeed tragic that such could happen in this country. What exactly happened to Dr. Olawunmi Thorpe, an Ogun State indigene, who died a homeless man, may never be known.

To passersby and residents, who saw Thorpe everyday in the rubbish dump beside the rail line at Fagba Bus Stop in Ifako-Ijaiye Local Government Area of Lagos State, he was a deranged man. But what many people did not know was that…
Thorpe had a Bachelor and Master’s degrees in Mass Communication and a PhD in English Language. All these information came to light when the Punch got information that the “mad man” who spoke impeccable English had died about 5pm Wednesday last week.
It took two ‘good Samaritans’, Mr. Larry Happiday and Mr. Dele Olawale, who had interest in Thorpe’s case before he died, to ensure that his body did not rot on the same rubbish dump he used as home.

It’s back to the White House as Obama wins 2012 President elections!

Four more years…That’s how the first black US president announced his victory, winning to stay in the White house for a second term.
President Barack Obama has defeated Governor Mitt Romney and won himself a second term Tuesday, November 6, 2012 after what has been described as ‘a bitter and historically expensive race’.
Obama is reported to have beat Romney after nabbing the crucial state of Ohio. It was however a tight race as Republican candidate Mitt Romney brought on a fierce challenge. Obama made a great head start with a 265 win in the states of Iowa and New Hampshire, leaving Romney behind with a 191 votes.
Obama hit the electoral point of 274 with Romney at 201, automatically making him the elected president. Ohio has a great history for Republicans as no republican president has ever won presidency without winning ohio.
Romney also failed to win in Wisconsin and Florida regarded as battle states showing that democrats were more preferred. Significantly, Romney lost even in his home state of Massachusetts.
We’re all in this together. That’s how we campaigned, and that’s who we are. Thank you. This happened because of you. Thank you’, Obama thanked those who voted via micro-blogging site Twitter.

After Jose Mourinho watched his Real Madrid side draw 2-2 at home with Borussia Dortmund, the 49-year-old said if they qualify from the group in second place, it will not be a problem for them.

Rather, the Portuguese said the teams that finish in first place will be in an uncomfortable position.
Dortmund currently tops the group, after winning at home two weeks ago.
“If we qualify, if this is the most difficult group and we end up second, then, that’s a problem for the other teams that end up first in their groups,” Mourinho told reporters after the game. “The two times that I’ve won the Champions League my team ended the group stage in second place.
“There is no drama here. We played a great game versus Manchester City and today it’s been another great game.
“We made two big defensive mistakes, you can’t do that against a big team, they will kill you.
“Dortmund put us under a lot of pressure. In the first half we couldn’t perform, but the second half was quite different, I liked the second half.”
