Governor Fashola writes FG on condition of Oshodi-Apapa Expressway

Lagos State Governor, Mr.Babatunde Raji Fashola, has complained to the Federal Government about the worsening condition of the Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, a major highway that links the nation’s busiest sea ports to other parts of the country. In separate letters to President Goodluck Jonathan and Vice President Nemadi Sambo, the Governor also drew attention to the horrific traffic congestion on the expressway and the need to take urgent steps to fix the ever-busy road.

But the pleas seem to have fallen on deaf ears and the result is that once again, the ever-busy expressway has been plunged into an eyesore and a commuter’s nightmare. Specifically, Governor Fashola had on September, 17, 2012 forwarded a detailed presentation of what should be done to fix the road and ease the traffic congestion to Vice President Namadi Sambo. In the letter entitled “Re: Report of the Deterioration and Regeneration of Apapa, Lagos,” Fashola sought to make a presentation on the state of the road and what the restoration would take, to the National Economic Council.

Ladies, 5 things to do if he is cheating on you

One of the worst things you can do is become obsessed with the other woman. It’s natural for you to be curious about her, but she’s not worth your time and energy.
Your husband is cheating. You’re not sure what to do. Before wrestling with that decision, let’s focus first on what you SHOULDN’T do. Most women react blindly when they find out their husbands are having an affair. They let fear, anger, hurt, or a desire for revenge compel them to do things they later regret — things which make it difficult or impossible to implement any worthwhile infidelity advice they may later receive.
This article will keep you from making a mistake that could sabotage the course of action you eventually decide to take. Regardless of whether you decide to leave your husband or stay with him and try to work things out, doing the wrong thing at the outset can make a bad situation worse. Let’s look at 5 key things you SHOULDN’T do and examine the reasons why.
1. Don’t put him out or leave him – yet.

And rather than take the end of the romance on the chin, the fiery Italian is said to have got ‘angry and upset’ with his former flame.
A friend of 28-year-old Tabby told The Sun newspaper: ‘It really did affect him. He got angry and upset and tried to pursue her. He had probably never been dumped before.’

Police arrest housemaid, boyfriend for robbing her boss and staging her kidnap

A 27-year-old housemaid, Mariam Acheme, and four persons have been arrested for robbing the housemaid’s employer and staging her kidnap on November 26, 2012.

According to the Police Public Relations Officer of the Lagos state command, Ngozi Braide, “the housemaid invited her boyfriend to her boss’ house when the madam had gone out. On getting to the house, the boyfriend and another person ransacked the entire house. They vandalised the doors and also stole all the valuables. The housemaid then padlocked the gate from outside and fled with them.”
It was gathered that when the owner of the house arrived, she discovered that all her valuables and the house maid were gone. She immediately proceeded to the Bode Thomas Police Division to report the case.
The PPRO further disclosed that “a few days later, someone contacted the housemaid’s boss and informed her that Acheme had been kidnapped. The madam returned to the police and told them that some men called and said they had kidnapped the housemaid. The men asked for N5m and said if the money was not paid, they would not release her. The housemaid spoke to her ‘madam’ on the phone, crying and telling her that she was being tortured by the kidnappers and urged her boss to pay the ransom immediately.

“Foreign coaches are coming to Africa just for the money” – Keshi

Coach of Nigeria’s senior national team, Stephen Keshi, has criticised foreign managers who are managing African teams, as he feels most of them have accepted the jobs, just for the financial packages.
“The white guys are coming to Africa just for the money,” he said. “They are not doing anything that we cannot do. I am not racist but that’s just the way it is.”
Keshi was also critical of the difference in which some African Federations treat local and foreign coaches.
