Words on the street yesterday suggested Nigerian
stylist Toyin Lawani and her boyfriend/fiancee

What a way to dismiss rumour. She shared a

caption of the summer (below).

Words on the street yesterday suggested Nigerian
Nuhu Ribadu shocked the media and Nigerians
when it was revealed that he has left APC for
PDP. He had his reasons however. He explained
on his facebook page to his friends and followers his
“I know how difficult it may be for you to come to
terms with my defection to another party. But I
must assure you that it’s a carefully considered
decision for which I do not wish to hurt anyone’s
feeling. I’ll not embark on a needless animosity with
my good friends, irrespective of political, religious,
regional and ethnic affiliations.
Let me quickly make it known that I did not issue a
statement disparaging APC and its members,
including Governors Amaechi, Kwankwaso… These
were clearly fabricated, expected backlash, by
mischievous characters interested in misleading the
public and drawing a picture of non-existent feuds
between me and my good friends.
My defection shouldn’t be seen as an initiation of
political antagonism with my good friends in another
party. I still hold them in high esteem, and even
where there are marked differences, I believe there
are decorous and honorable ways of resolving them.
So, kindly disregard any statement said to be by me
attacking the personality of any politician since my
defection. I’ll never allow myself to be drawn into
such disrespectful exchange.
As for my next step in this political struggle, this
would be made known in due time. For now, I
wish to assure you that my defection is in pursuit of
a good cause, and never out of any selfish interests
as portrayed by a section. Thanks for bearing with
me on this decision, and for those who have been in
solidarity with my struggles and still giving me the
benefits of the doubt, I’m most grateful. I’ll never
let you down on this new path. Thank you!
Kcee took us down memory lane today,
Wednesday… Just because Throw Back Thursday
is too mainstream.
The hitmaker shared a touching story of his life as a
footballer when he was much younger and how
much he wanted to be a celebrity.
“You cannot expect victory and plan for defeat, I
had a dream that one day I will be a celebrity. I
remembered vividly waking up as early as 5 am
every day in Ajegunle shuttling between mara kana
football pitch and boundary market . Believe in
your self and work hard for your self definitely
with the grace of GOD #OGADINMA,” he
Ik Ogbonna and his Colombian sweetheart, Sonia

Here’s a heartrendering article written by
journalist, Cheta Nwanze.
There’s a statue in Yaba, Lagos, of a man, whom
many in Nigeria have forgotten. His family never
have. And now, we all have a chance to remember
him, and in a way, to honour him. He is the man
on our one Naira coin.
Herbert Olayinka Samuel Heelas Badmus
Macaulay, had a daughter, Sarah Idowu Abigail,
who would get married and give birth to a son,
Babatunde Kwaku Adadevoh. Babatunde would
grow up to become a doctor, and have kids of his
own. One of these children, Stella Ameyo, became,
like her father, a doctor.
She would go on to work at a hospital in
Obalende, Lagos, First Consultant Hospital, not
very far from where her famous ancestor was once
imprisoned by the British.
It was to be at that that place of work that Stella
Ameyo was to perform an act that would save the
lives of possibly hundreds of thousands, and sacrifice
her own in return.
On July 20, 2014, a patient was wheeled in from
the Murtala Muhammed International Airport.
Patrick Sawyer, the patient, had shown signs of
high fever during his flight from Monrovia, and was
taken straight from the airport to the hospital. By
the next day, his condition had deteriorated, and he
was immediately placed under observation, while his
blood sample was taken, and sent for tests. That
same day, Mr. Sawyer insisted, with the help of
officials of the Liberian Embassy, on being
discharged. Stella Ameyo, as supervising doctor,
stood her ground that he should not leave the
hospital. It was at that point, while reinserting his
needles, that she came in contact with him, and in
effect signed her own death warrant. One of her
junior colleagues, Justina Obi Ejelonu, who had
the day before when Sawyer was brought in, helped
in checking him, also assisted in placing him back in
care. Like Stella Ameyo Adadevoh, Justina Obi
Ejelonu, has passed away.
There is no other word to describe the actions of
both women, and indeed their entire facility. In
preventing the escape of this patient who had
insisted on leaving, in his condition, for Calabar,
750 kilometres away, both women saved countless
lives. What if Mr. Sawyer had decided that the
best way to go to Calabar was to go to Jibowu and
take a bus? Even if he’d chosen to go by air, which
would have made his fellow passengers that much
easier to trace, the potential damage is incalculable.
The most tragic part of the passing of both women
is that they cannot even be buried decently, and with
all the respect that their sacrifice demands. The
very bug that cut them down is so virulent, so
unforgiving, that even that honour, will be deprived
The sacrifice that Dr. Adadevoh and Nurse
Ejelonu have made is the highest form of sacrifice
that any man, or woman, can make for his, or her,
fellow human being. It is said that there is no
greater love than to lay down your life for your
Both women, and their colleague, put their lives on
the line for 170 million of their fellow citizens, many
of whom do not even understand the concept of
what it means to be a citizen. The very least that
Nigeria can do in appreciation, is to honour them.
I have a suggestion for such an honour, and not
some meaningless title or coin which will soon fall
out of use. Nigeria should declare August 19 each
year a national holiday, and in the names of both
women. That way, some Nigerian child in six
decades can ask his parent, “Mummy, who is Stella
Ameyo Adadevoh?” And the parent can reply,
“That woman saved my life, and the lives of all of
us”. It is the least we can do. It is the least we
