Why you should Waist train and Body Shape

With celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Amber Rose advocating for waist training we decided to delve in and see what all the fuss is about. And we infact found reasons why it is such a rave. See below for our good reasons

What is Waist Training?

Waist training is a gradual process of waist reduction using a steel boned corset. Also known as waist cinching or tight-lacing the practice came to prominence in Victorian times but has made something of a comeback in recent years. Wearing a tight-lacing corset, exercise and eating a healthy diet can radically reduce the waist of women.

Furthermore, the wearing of a corset whilst undertaking a healthy diet helps reduce food volume intake by constricting the internal organs thus helping promote the healthier practice of smaller meals, more often, rather than three large meals a day.

Tight-lacing as a means of permanent waist-reduction and re-shaping is a practice requiring discipline and is best achieved when the following 3 components work in harmony:

  • Waist Cinching using a traditional steel-boned corset
  • Healthy Diet
  • Regular Exercise
Furthermore waist training is a faster way of loosing weight and achieving a hour glass figure while your at it. Its really a win win situation
For those that want to go the extra mile and shape their whole body they are not left out.
Body Shaper does a more rounded job in that it works on the whole body and
  • Reduce fat in the crotch area
  • Corrects posture and shapens overall figure
  • Smoothens irregularities and helps prevent additional deposits.
I'm sure you're probably wondering hmmm how do I get these amazing products well that's why I'm here for you I've already purchased mine at an unbelievable price infact it was so unbelievable that I  had to rush and grab it before it finished. You can too!! Just contact Vicky at 2BC286F4 or call/whatsapp at 08071220858

Couple Stabs Young Girls Privates and Smears it with Pepper

A 10-year-old girl, Chidinma, has been admitted at an undisclosed hospital after a couple – Eucheria Chukwuma and Jerry Oko-Oboh – allegedly beat her up and stabbed her in the private parts with a broken bottle.
It was learnt that the couple and the victim’s family lived on Joshua Street, Agbabiaka, in the Ajangbadi area of Lagos.
Punch Metro Reports that the couple assaulted the minor for allegedly fiddling with the vagina of their three-year-old daughter, Peace.

It is gathered that Chidinma, who denied the allegation, had played with Peace at about 7pm on April 6. It was alleged that the toddler later cried and told her parents that Chidinma fiddled with her private parts.

Angered by the complaint, 30-year-old Chukwuma, it was learnt, went to Chidinma’s mother, Ofia, demanding that Chidinma follow her to her room.

A few minutes later, Ofia reportedly heard her daughter screaming and rushed to Chukwuma’s apartment to see what was wrong.

On getting there, the door was said to have been locked by the couple who reportedly beat up the victim repeatedly with punches. Not satisfied, the wife allegedly stabbed Chidinma in the private parts and smeared them with pepper.

Our correspondent was told that the couple fled the neighbourhood when blood started gushing from Chidinma’s vagina. They were later trailed and arrested by the police after the attack was reported at the Okokomaiko Police station.

The police said Chukwuma, in a statement she voluntarily made at the station, confessed to the crime, saying she became furious when the girl declined comments about Peace’s allegation.

She and her husband were subsequently arraigned before an Apapa Magistrate’s Court on three counts bordering on assault.

The offence, according to the police prosecutor, Olusoji Ojaokomo, is punishable under sections 171, 243 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2011.

The charges read in part, “That you, Eucheria Chukwuma, 30 and Jerry Oko-Oboh, 32 on April 6, 2015, at about 9pm on Joshua Street, Agbabiaka, Oke-Agbo, Ajangbadi, in the Ojo Magisterial District, did conspire to commit felony and unlawfully assaulted one 10-year-old Chidinma, by beating her up with fist blows in her eye, which caused her harm.

“That you, on the same date, time and place, in the aforementioned magisterial district, did unlawfully assault one Chindima by stabbing her with a broken bottle in her private parts.”

The accused persons, however, pleaded not guilty to the offence.

The presiding magistrate, Mr. P.A. Adekomaya, admitted them to bail in the sum of N100, 000 with a surety each in like sum. He added that they be remanded in prison.
Well with the rate of child abuse in the country I can understand that the parents of the baby were furious because the Chidinma tried to defile their child but personally I think they went too far.  

Meet The Man Who Trekked his Way to Stardom

Some residents of Abuja  yesterday took to the streets to jubilate following the arrival of Mallam Suleman Hasheem, the man who trekked from Lagos to the Federal Capital Territoey (FCT) in celebration of General Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in the March 28 presidential poll.
Hundreds of the residents, chorusing, ‘sai Baba, sai Baba” lined the streets of Abuja to welcome Hasheem.
The man, escorted by the police, arrived in Abuja at about 5.p.m. from Suleja. At Mabushi bridge, scores of people queued for several hours to catch a glimpse of Buhari’s admirer even before his arrival.

Clad in a red jersey, black tracker and snickers, Hasheem beamed with smiles as he trekked the streets of Abuja. Apart from the shout of sai Baba that rented the air, a police van trailing him, blared siren.

He waved at the crowd, but refused to address the fans. He arrived in Minna, Niger State last week.

Hasheem left Lagos on March 30 after Buhari, the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) was declared winner by the Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC), Prof. Attahiru Jega.

Meet Petro. Minister Alison Madueke's Extravagant Son

Ugonna Madueke is the son of Nigerian Petroleum Minister, Diezani Allison-Madueke, who has very serious allegations of corruption in the past year. These pictures of him are from the DailyPost.

Six Countries Turn Down Petro. Minister Alison Madueke's Aslyum request

The report, dated March 2015, focused extensively on Nigeria’s general elections. It said the notorious Minister, whose impunity is known to have been closely-protected by President Goodluck Jonathan, will be coming under the microscope for the first time in her Ministerial career.
No fewer than six countries have already refused to grant an asylum request by the Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, the Business Council for Africa (BCA) said in its just-released monthly report, noting that about US$ 1 trillion is the latest estimated figure of the looting of the Nigerian treasury between 1960 and 2005 alone.
The report, dated March 2015, focused extensively on Nigeria’s general elections.  It said the notorious Minister, whose impunity is known to have been closely-protected by President Goodluck Jonathan, will be coming under the microscope for the first time in her Ministerial career.
“Given her reputation, it comes as no surprise to learn that 6 countries have already refused to grant her asylum to live in their countries as she now wishes to leave Nigeria at the earliest possible opportunity,” it said.
BCA recalled President-elect Muhammadu Buhari lamenting that the rest of the world looks at Nigeria as the home of corruption, one where stealing is not corruption but a way of life, and that his administration will pursue all public offices and individuals who are believed to be guilty of corruption.
It observed that despite an earlier promise, it is now understood that Buhari’s anti-corruption fishing net will include Ministers currently serving under President Goodluck Jonathan.  Alison-Madueke’s departure from Nigeria is likely to be followed by several other PDP elders, party members and supporters as well as some former Government officials, as Buhari’s anti-corruption drive will be far-reaching.

Minister of Petroleum Alison Madueke Tries to Run Away From Her Scandals!

Barely two months to the inauguration of a new government, the fear of the President-Elect, General Muhammadu Buhari is already driving corrupt officials who wield enormous power under the out-going Goodluck Jonathan administration, out of the country. Buhari has declared that the fight against corruption will be a major drive of his in-coming administration. gathered that following her failure to get President Jonathan and ex-Head of state, Gen. Abdulsalam Abubakar secure a soft landing deal for her from Gen Buhari last weekend, controversial Nigeria’s Petroleum Minister, Mrs Diezani Alison Madueke has fled the country to the United Kingdom, from where she might escape to a safe haven.
It was gathered that Diezani who has a plethora of corruption allegations against her left the country through the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Monday aboard a British Airways flight. A reliable source in the presidential villa told that “madam had to take off far ahead of the inauguration of the government of Gen Buhari because she is scared he may turn his searchlight on the oil sector.” Ironically, the minister who is widely known to travel around in private jets had to travel this time in the first class cabin of the British Airways flight.
When contacted to confirm the Minister’s whereabout, one of her aides who pleaded for anonymity confirmed Mrs Alison-Madueke indeed left the country on Monday morning but gave a different reason for the trip. According to the minister’s aide “it is true the Hon. Minister traveled but she went to take care of her health because she has been down medically and she needs proper medical attention.”
On when the Minister will be back in the country, the aide said “no one can say when she will be back. That depends on her health and the advice of her doctors. She may come before May 29, she may decide to stay back with her children over there till anytime to take care of herself.” however learnt that the once powerful woman feigned sickness and actually pretended to be seriously sick while going through immigration at the airport departure lounge over fears that she might be stopped from fleeing the country.
Nigerians are waiting to see Mrs Alison-Madueke account for the $20 billion former CBN governor and now Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi has continued to insist was diverted from the federation account by the Minister and her cronies in NNPC.
Apart from this, a group of whistleblowers against corruption has accused Diezani Alison-Madueke, of squandering millions of dollars of public funds to rent private jets for the conduct of her official activities. In a petition to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the group, known as Crusader for Good Governance, demanded that Ms. Allison-Madueke be investigated for her habit of spending extravagant sums to rent private jets for her official hops.
Mrs. Alison-Madueke has frequently traveled around the world in private jets since becoming a minister, first under the late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua and later under President Goodluck Jonathan. In addition, she often moves members of her family in private jets.
In 2010, President Jonathan appointed Mrs. Alison-Madueke to the Ministry of Petroleum Resources, the nerve center of the Nigerian economy and traditionally the vortex of corruption in a country that is widely regarded as one of the most corrupt in the world.
Since being appointed minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Alison-Madueke has become one of the most powerful Nigerian government officials. Several reports have linked her to sleazy oil deals and a penchant for wastage of public funds.
She has spent some N2 billion on private jet rentals, according to the petition submitted to the EFCC by Enugu-based “Crusader For Good Governance.” The petition was signed by Okechukwu Obiora Nnamdi, the group’s leader.
The group accused Mrs. Alison-Maduekwe of spending $300,000 on an average international trip outside of Nigeria. She reportedly spends as much as $500,000 on trips to such destinations as China, Malaysia and several North American countries, according to the petition. The petitioners listed some of the minister’s most lavish trips.
During Easter break, she flew a private jet to Dubai with members of her family at the cost of $300,000.
During President Jonathan’s visit to South Africa, she flew in a private jet that cost Nigeria $300,000.
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), a government agency she oversees, maintains a Challenger 850 Visa jet which serves the minister’s needs as well as those of her family. The cost of running the jet is $500,000 per month.
Ms. Allison-Madueke went to a meeting of the Oil Producing and Exporting Countries (OPEC) in Austria in a private jet.
In addition, the petitioners alleged that, in the last two years, the Petroleum minister has never attended any meeting outside Nigeria in a commercial jet or in any of the jets maintained by the Nigerian Presidency. They stated that she had wasted more than N2 billion on the maintenance of aircraft in the last two years. They accused her of being the only minister who consistently uses private jets to arrive at destinations when the Nigerian president travels abroad.

The petition also carpets Mrs. Allison-Madueke for often doing official jobs out of her house, which means that she is frequently absent from her official desk at the ministry.
As alleged in the petition to the EFCC, Mrs. Alison-Madueke also frequently uses the services of Vista Jet, a Swiss luxury aviation company that provides jets to wealthy businessmen around the world. Vista Jet has done deals with such Nigerians as Governor Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom State and Nduka Obaigbena, the flamboyant publisher of Thisday newspaper.
Curiously, Vista Jet has a Nigerian businessman, Kola Aluko, on its board. Mr. Aluko, who once acted as Vista Jet’s West African representative, is known to be close to Ms. Alison-Madueke. “[Kola] Aluko and Mrs. Diezani Allison-Madueke are neck deep in the oil business,” said a source at the NNPC. “She helped him [Mr. Aluko] to land a choice allocation of pricey oil blocks through a company called Seven Energy,” added the source.
In a petition sent to the Nigerian Senate by the Delta Producing Communities, Ms. Alison-Madueke is accused of transferring the ownership of four oil mining licenses (OML), 30, 34, 26 and 42, to Atlantic Energy Drilling Concept which belongs to Mr. Omokore.
The US-educated minister was long known for her interest in wealth and social climbing. During Nigeria’s last years of military dictatorship, she was linked to several military officers, including one-time Foreign Minister, General Ike Nwachukwu (retd.) and Rear Admiral Allison Amaechina Madueke (retd.), her current husband who was once Nigeria’s chief of naval staff.

The Scandals Of Petro. Minister Alison Madueke Part 2

It continues;

Another attempt to steal money failed: 
While the dust raised by this incidence was yet to settle, another erupted on the 24th June, 2014, exactly three weeks after the first one, when an attempt was made to break in and steal another large sum of money from the minister’s residence at Fredrick Chilubah close, off Jose Marti crescent, beside Ogun State governor’s Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja.

This time too was another of her steward and alleged love bird by the name Sunday Azubuike who felt cheated when Mac-Millian made away with such amount of money when he was the one doing the main job of ‘banging’. Young, handsome and agile Sunday whom many within and around the minister’s residence publicly suspected to be madam’s favourite lover boy was said to have broken into her bedroom, stole another large sum of money which was alleged to have been the replacement for the one Ofojareri stole three weeks earlier, before he ran out of luck and was caught red-handed, arrested and detained in the Police cell for a very long time.

The report was said to have been brought to the Police high command this time by one Superintendant of Police (SP) Okundaye Ewere who is the minister’s Chief Security Officer (CSO). Meanwhile, it was revealed that the young Sunday Azubuike during the preliminary investigation made some very useful but damaging and indicting statements against the Honourable Minister and so was invariably charged to court for house-breaking and theft.

It was further revealed to us that the young man who had benefitted immensely from the “madam’s lover” relationship did not show any remorse, insisting he had done the right thing. The minister was alleged to have rented and furnished a two-bedroom house as a love nest and bought a car for him for prompt and easy movement when duty calls before now.

The Honourable Minister, whom some insiders described as “very lewd and flamboyant lady” we learnt is always seen walking about her premises and even attending to visitors in “Boom-shots” and short but sexy tops unmindful of the presence of security operatives and other young domestic staff in her residence.

While the case is now on-going in court, attempts are also being made by the minister to promptly withdraw the matter on the advice of the prosecution since the attempt was unsuccessful and as Mr. Azubuike backed by his lawyer has threatened to spill the beans. It will, therefore, be in the interest of the minister to withdraw this matter from the court as Nigerians will shout it to the roof top and demand for her removal once it is made public.

Powerful but scandalous minister:
According to report made available to this Magazine, Nigeria’s Minister of Petroleum, Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke is undoubtedly one of the most powerful but scandalous minister in the country today. Apart from holding a very sensitive position in the executive council, she hails from Bayelsa state and also has the ears of President Goodluck Jonathan. The beautiful young woman, we also learnt has several ‘underground and undisclosed’ relationships with so many younger men especially in the oil and gas industry whom she is alleged to have made multi-billionaires today.

Christopher Aire’s oily jewel: 
Sometimes in 2011, NEXT, one of Nigeria’s most authentic newspapers, ran a series of investigative reports that linked the Minister herself to monumental corruption. In one of those reports, titled “Oil Minister, her jewelry and their sweetheart deal” the minister was alleged to have discretionally licensed one Christopher Aire, a 47-year old United States of America-based Nigerian celebrity jewelry designer and merchant, to be lifting crude oil.

On the 7th April, 2010, a day after her appointment as Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison Madueke was alleged to have flown to Beverly Hills in Los Angeles to revel in a lavish party and fashion show put together by Christopher Aire, whom she met during her 15-month tenure as Minister for Solid Minerals and Steel Development.

By the time the bejeweled Mrs. Alison Madueke returned home a few days later to resume duties as Nigeria’s first female oil minister, she was alleged to have achieved three clear objectives from the trip – she had unlimited fun with her new lover, acquired some of Aire’s exotic gold and gemstones and handed her new lover, Mr. Christopher Aire an invitation to become one of Nigeria’s biggest crude oil lifter. That was the beginning of the beautiful friendship. But how the relationship blossomed or failed after that is a story for another day.
Dapo Abiodun’s oily romance: 
Shortly after PowerSteering’s elaborate publication on the minister in September, 2013 with the cover “OIL INDUSTRY UNDER ALISON MADUEKE STINKS”, another mind-boggling revelation made about Diezani’s extra-marital relationship with a Lagos–based oil and gas big boy, Dapo Abiodun became so revealing and virile on the social media. According to those who knew about their affairs, Diezani and Dapo dated for quite a while and while it lasted, both enjoyed it to the fullest both at home in Nigeria and at various places abroad. The source said Dapo was the “apple” of Diezani’s eye during the late President Umaru Yar’Adua’s tenure when she was the Minister of Transport and later Solid Mineral Resources.

PowerSteering was reliably informed that the affair between Diezani and Dapo was closely and jealously guided but only a few people in the corridors of power including President Jonathan who was then the Vice President knew of it. Dapo Abiodun who owns Heyden Oil, one of the major players in the oil and gas sector, was alleged by insiders to have gotten more patronage through Alison Madueke’s influence while the relationship lasted. Unfortunately for the love birds, somewhere along the line, we learnt Dapo fumbled and Diezani had a bitter fight with him. When eventually, Diezani Alison Madueke became the Minister of Petroleum, Dapo lost the patronage and got nothing from her afterwards.

Above Presidential reproach: In recent time, Diezani Alison Madueke has been trailed by allegations of corruption, fraud, cronyism, abuse of office, and lately high-level promiscuity but no one is able to call her to order, not even the president.

All attempts to get the Senior Special Adviser on Media to the Honourable Minister on his mobile line – 08029508778 including text messages to comment on this was unsuccessful for three days before going to the press as he neither picked our calls, – returned them, nor reply our text messages.


The Scandals of Petro. Minister Alison Madueke Part 1

How President Jonathan tried to cover up
*In June, she lost N2billion to a domestic staff
*Another attempt after 21 days
*Another $10million theft led to the $700m discovery
Goodluck Jonathan… another headache for a troubled President
When one realises what is happening around Nigeria’s Petroleum Minister, Mrs Diezani Alison-Madueke, one will be tempted to imagine the type of possible stealing and corruption going on within the Federal Government of Nigeria which certainly is mind boggling.

Information available on claims that $700 million was allegedly found in the house of Nigeria’s Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke.

The huge sum in foreign currency was discovered recently by some security agents while conducting a search of the house of one her aides who resides within the minister’s house, but who allegedly stole $10 million from the Minister.

Police…stopped from following up on the suspects

Madueke, according to source admitted to the ownership of the huge sum of $700 million. 

“She must have kept that very particular money in her aide’s apartment, because the unnamed aide is said to be one of the trusted one among others”, our source stated.

It was further gathered that when this discovery was reported to President Goodluck Jonathan, the president felt so sad and disappointed, he immediately invited Diezani Alison Madueke to his office for questioning and rebuked her severely.

President Jonathan asked the Minister
 “for God’s sake what are you doing with $700 million in your home?”
Mrs. Madueke retorted 
“I am keeping the money for you”. 
How far this was true could not be double-checked. It is however gathered that President Jonathan just smiled and promptly asked her to go in peace.

President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration has been criticised by many Nigerians as being the most corrupt considering the president’s feeble stance on corruption.

The N2billion theft: The last might not have been heard about the proflicacy and indulgence of Mrs. Diezani Alison Madueke, the embattled Honourable Minister of Petroleum who has hardly been able to wriggle herself out of the myriad of allegations of corruption against her person, especially the rot Nigerian in the National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) over the $20billion scandal in her ministry.

No day, week or month passes without very negative reports about this first Nigerian female Minister of Petroleum who is the second wife of Rear Admiral Alison Madueke, the former governor of the old Anambra and Imo States.

Reports reaching us revealed that Mrs. Alison Madueke is enmeshed in so many fresh official and domestic scandals and have developed thick skin over them to the point that it seems she is now immuned to embarrassment and does not bother herself anymore.

Flighty N2billion disappear in her house: 
In one of the fresh reports made available to PowerSteering recently, Diezani was alleged to have lost a whooping sum of N2billion in various foreign currencies to her domestic staff on the 3rd of June, 2014 without batting an eyelid.

It was revealed to PowerSteering Magazine that in a build-up to the campaign for Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) elections in June 2014, Diezani was alleged to have collected the said amount in different foreign currencies with the aim of using same to cushion and cruise her way through settling and lobbying appropriate stakeholders to victory as the Secretary General of OPEC.
She took the said amount of money to her home in two Ghana-Must-Go bags when her steward, one Mac-Millian Ofojareri broke into her bedroom while she was out, removed the two bags and vanished with the said N2billion worth of foreign currencies into the thin air. Mac-Millian was said to have quickly escaped from Abuja to meet his family in Ajaokuta in Kogi State before proceeding to Dubai, United Arab Emirate within days without being stopped.

Diezani although realised the gravity of the offence but considering the effect this incident would have on her personality, the image of the country and the integrity of Mr. President with whose knowledge she allegedly got the money, she quickly asked the former IG of Police Mr. Mohammed Abubakar and a few others involved to discontinue the case after it was unofficially reported at the Force Headquarters and preliminary investigations concluded on the matter.

A very reliable source disclosed that such stories of missing money were very frequent and common in the minister’s residence as she cannot even account for the actual amount of money brought into her residence by those needing her help and those owing her favours on daily, weekly and monthly basis. Our source who has been working for the Minister for over five years now, recalled that the minister has been loosing monies to domestic staffers but only decided to lay complaint officially to the police this time because of the huge amount involved.

A check at the immigration border check points during the investigation confirmed that Mr. Mac-Mallian Ofojareri actually headed for Dubai with the N2billion to cool-off with his family. How he was able to do that with such huge amount of money without being caught is still a mystery and a great lapse on the side of the security agents.

Mac-Millian, an average aged man whom every member of Diezani’s family alleged was a very religious and pious person was the least expected person to have done such a thing to madam minister. He was trusted and even given the privilege to enter every corner of Mrs. Alison Madueke’s residence without restriction.

This, it was alleged contributed largely to Diezani’s losing the bid to becoming Secretary General of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) in addition to allegations of corruption levelled against her. Her inability to provide the welfare (money) needed to settle the kingmakers and stakeholders was one of the reasons she lost the bid.

Information available to PowerSteering Magazine, revealed that her hope of becoming the Organisation’s first female Secretary General was dashed when OPEC members opted to extend the tenure of the incumbent Secretary General, Abdullah Al-Badri till 30th June, 2015, instead of appointing Madueke who after promising to settle could not keep her promise because Mac-Mallian had stolen the N2billion meant for that purpose.

Our investigation further revealed that the embattled Petroleum Minister who was reportedly nominated and heavily backed-up and sponsored financially by Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan was aptly turned down by the body in June 2014, when she failed to make the grade, especially the financial obligations to the stakeholders who would have paved the way for her emergence as the Secretary General of OPEC.

The initial proposal to have Alison Madueke occupy the position was to solve the deadlock over the post created by opposing candidates from Saudi Arabia and Iran. While this rejection may not mean much to many Nigerians, it will definitely go a long way in affecting Madueke’s career in future, especially within the international community.                     
Minister organised the stealing of the money: 
An insider who spoke under anonymity also opined that the disappearance of such huge sum of money from the minister’s residence couldn’t have been possible without her knowledge, considering the security provided at her residence and insisted that it must have been a planned in-house job between the minister and “Pastor” Mac-Millan. He went further to explain that the Minister must have made that last minute plan sensing that she was not going to win the OPEC election after all, because of the myriad of allegations of corruption against her even at the home front, in spite of the large financial and moral support given to her by President Jonathan. And instead of wasting such amount of money on what she knew was not going to be possible, she may have decided to divert it to settle and pay-off Mac-Millain whom we later learnt was at the verge of blackmailing her for some immoral behaviours.
Watch out for Part 2!!

Femi Fani Kayode Speaks on Presidential Elections

Femi Fani Kayode lets us into his mind after the results were announced

Ladies and gentlemen of the media,

We have come here today to express our gratitude to the Nigerian people for the overwhelming support that we received over the last few weeks when it comes to the issue of the Presidential election.

We fought a virile, strong, aggressive and very effective campaign on behalf of our candidate, President Goodluck Jonathan and we put the case to the Nigerian people as to why we believe that he ought to have been elected as President for a second term.

We are very proud of the efforts of our President and of our party and we are also very proud of the efforts of every single one of those who participated in the Presidential Campaign Organisation. As a Directorate we could not have asked for anything more in terms of support and encouragement from our colleagues and comrades within the party and the Campaign Organisation. I am personally very proud of my team, every single one of them; my Assistant Directors, my officers, my advisory team and every single one of those that joined hands to help us to state our case and to sell our candidate to the Nigerian people.

It has however come to a point that we must tell the world and the Nigerian people about how we feel about the outcome of the election. What we will say here today is basically to reiterate and to reflect the words of our leader and President, President Goodluck Jonathan. We start by saying that we commend and we congratulate General Muammadu Buhari for winning this election. We also wish to commend our President, President Goodluck Jonathan, for having the courage to concede that he has lost the election at the earliest moment and also for being able to stand up and rise above party politics and being able to speak like a statesman.
We therefore urge the Nigerian people and our teeming supporters to stand firm and continue to support the democratic process and continue to agitate for a better Nigeria. We urge them to continue to support our party the PDP as best as they can even though we lost this election. We ask them to co-operate with the incoming government and to remember that we are first and foremost Nigerians before anything else.

On the day of the election when I went to vote at Ile-Ife, I held a press conference in which I told the people that more than anything else that we should try our very best to keep the peace in this country and to keep the country moving forward. I also reminded them that in every election there will always be a winner and a loser. It is a mark of our humanity and it is also symptomatic of the type of people that we are and who we are that when the time comes we can say we fought a good fight but we lost.

And having lost, it does not mean that it is the end to the world, it just means that we need to re-group, re-organise ourselves and begin the process all over again because another elections will come in a few years time. And that is where we are today. We have conceded that we have lost. We acknowledge the fact that we fought a good fight. We do not have any fears about the future. We did the right thing during the campaign. We have no regrets about our candidate or the way in which we conducted our campaign and we will live to fight another day

Finally let me commend all our colleagues on the other side for also standing up for what they believed in. There was absolutely nothing personal as regards this Directorate or myself. I had nothing personal against anybody. I was simply doing my job for which I have no regrets and I wish them well and I sincerely hope that they will take Nigeria to a level that we can all be proud of.

May God grant each and everyone of us peace. May He watch over our nation. May He guide our President for the next two months whilst he is still in power and thereafter and may He guide and lead the President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, in the herculean task that lies ahead for him. My prayer is that he brings our nation together, heals the wounds and that he builds the bridges in terms of religion, ethnicity and region that he needs to build in order for us to make Nigeria a better place and to ensure that Nigeria becomes a great country that she is destined to be.

I want to end this message by thanking our colleagues in the press for always responding to us so quickly and for always being ready to hear our message and for putting it out there. Also those on the social media, both friend and foe, we thank you for your efforts. We thank our foes because they kept us on our toes and we thank our friends because they encouraged us and gave us hope.

May God grant you all peace and joy and may you live long and prosper.

President Elect Gen. Buhari Acceptance Speech

General Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria’s president-elect this afternoon been issued a Certificate of Return by INEC. Read his acceptance speech after the cut:
I am immensely grateful to God for this day and for this hour. I feel truly honoured and humbled that the Nigerian people have so clearly chosen me to lead them. The official announcement from INEC was the moment the vast majority of Nigerians had hoped and been waiting for. Today, history has been made, and change has finally come. Your votes have changed our national destiny for the good of all Nigerians.
INEC has announced that I, Muhammadu Buhari, shall be your next president. My team and I shall faithfully serve you. There shall no longer be a ruling party again: APC will be your governing party. We shall faithfully serve you. We shall never rule over the people as if they were subservient to government.

Our long night has passed and the daylight of new democratic governance has broken across the land. This therefore is not a victory for one man or even one party. It is a victory for Nigeria and for all Nigerians. Millions of you have worked for this day. So many have risked life and livelihood; and others have died that we may witness this moment.

And it is with a very heavy heart that I report many deaths and injuries amidst the jubilations yesterday. We send our sincere condolences to the families and friends of those who lost their lives; and wish speedy recovery to those who suffered injuries. I appeal to all our supporters to celebrate this victory with prayers and reflection instead of wild jubilation.

May the souls of those who died rest in peace. Let us take a moment of silence to honour all of thosewhose sacrifices have brought us to this fine and historic hour. As the results of the election haveshown, their labor has not been and will never be in vain. Democracy and the rule of law will be re-established in the land.

Let us put the past, especially the recent past, behind us. We must forget our old battles and pastgrievances—and learn to forge ahead. I assure you that our government is one that will listen to andembrace all.

I pledge myself and our in-coming administration to just and principled governance. There shall be no bias against or favouritism for any Nigerian based on ethnicity, religion, region, gender or social status. I pledge myself and the government to the rule of law, in which none shall be so above the law that they are not subject to its dictates, and none shall be so below it that they are not availed of its protection.

You shall be able to go to bed knowing that you are safe and that your constitutional rights remain in safe hands. You shall be able to voice your opinion without fear of reprisal or victimisation. My love and concern for this nation and what I desire for it extends to all, even to those who do not like us or our politics. You are all my people and I shall treat everyone of you as my own. I shall work for those who voted for me as well as those who voted against me and even for those who did not vote at all. We all live under one name as one nation: we are all Nigerians.

Some unfortunate issues about my eligibility have been raised during the campaign. I wish to state that through devotion to this nation, everything I have learned and done has been to enable me to make the best possible contribution to public life. If I had judged myself incapable of governing Iwould never have sought to impose myself on it. I have served in various capacities and have always put in my best.

But despite the rancour of the elections, I extend a hand of friendship and conciliation to President Jonathan and his team. I hereby wish to state that I harbour no ill will against anyone.

Let me state clearly that President Jonathan has nothing to fear from me. Although we may notagree on the methods of governing the nation, he is a great Nigerian and still our president. Hedeserves our support and permanent respect by virtue of the office he has held. This is how anhonourable nation treats its servants and conducts its affairs; and this is how Nigeria should be.

I look forward to meeting with President Jonathan in the days to come to discuss how our teams canmake the transition of administrations as efficient as possible.

Here, I want to thank my party for selecting me as its candidate. I thank our party leaders andmembers for the steadfast contributions they made to bring our dream to fruition. I thank INEC, thepolice and all other government agencies for performing their tasks in a proper manner and forrefusing to be induced to undermine the election and the democratic process.

I also wish to thank religious Leaders, traditional leaders, the media, labor unions, Civil Societyorganisations, organised private sector, youths and students for their roles in this election.

I give special thanks to President Obama and his timely intervention and support for peacefuland credible elections in Nigeria and for sending Secretary John Kerry and other United Statesofficials. The European Union - especially the United Kingdom, France, Germany and other nations thatwere actively involved in ensuring the success of this election are equally appreciated. My sincerethanks to the United Nations Secretary General Mr Ban-Ki Moon. The Commonwealth, China, India andother Asian and Gulf states are also hereby appreciated. Finally our brothers in the African Unionand ECOWAS have truly and clearly shown and demonstrate their commitment to ourdemocratisation process. Former Presidents John Kuffour, Amos Sawyer, Bakili Muluzi and histeam are well appreciated. I must also add my appreciation for the role played by civil societies,national and International observers, other world leaders in ensuring that Nigeria holds free and fairelections.

I assure all foreign governments that Nigeria will become a more forceful and constructiveplayer in the global fight against terrorism and in other matters of collective concern, such as thefight against drugs, climate change, financial fraud, communicable diseases and other issuesrequiring global response. I want to assure our fellow African nations that Nigeria will nowstand as a more constructive partner in advancing the matters of concern to our continent, particularly with regard to economic development and eradication of poverty.

Former head of state and president Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, General Yakubu Gowon, Alh. ShehuShagari, General Ibrahim Babangida, Chief Ernest Shonekan and General Abdulsalami Abubakardeserve commendations for their statesmanship and words of caution and counsel for peace duringthe tense moments of this electoral period.

Most of all, I thank the people of Nigeria for reposing their confidence in me at this trying moment.Our nation wrestles many challenges including insecurity, corruption, economic decline. I pledge to giveyou my best in tackling these problems.

The good people of Nigeria, your obligation does not end with casting your ballot. I seek your voiceand input as we tackle these problems. This will not be a government democratic only in form. Itwill be a government democratic in substance and in how it interacts with its own people.

No doubt, this nation has suffered greatly in the recent past, and its staying power has beentested to its limits by crises, chief among which is insurgency of the Boko Haram. There isno doubt that in tackling the insurgency we have a tough and urgent job to do. But I assure youthat Boko Haram will soon know the strength of our collective will and commitment to rid this nation ofterror, and bring back peace and normalcy to all the affected areas. We shall spare no effort until wedefeat terrorism.

Furthermore, we shall strongly battle another form of evil that is even worse than terrorism—the evil ofcorruption. Corruption attacks and seeks to destroy our national institutions and character. Bymisdirecting into selfish hands funds intended for the public purpose, corruption distorts theeconomy and worsens income inequality. It creates a class of unjustly-enriched people.

Such an illegal yet powerful force soon comes to undermine democracy because its conspirators haveamassed so much money that they believe they can buy government. We shall end this threat toour economic development and democratic survival. I repeat that corruption will not be toleratedby this administration; and it shall no longer be allowed to stand as if it is a respected monument inthis nation.

I ask you to join me in resolving these and the other challenges we face. Along the way, therewill be victories but there may also be setbacks. Mistakes will be made. But we shall nevertake you for granted; so, be rest assured that our errors will be those of compassion andcommitment not of wilful neglect and indifference.

We shall correct that which does not work and improve that which does. We shall not stop, standor idle. We shall, if necessary crawl, walk and run to do the job you have elected us to do.

I realise that the expectation of our people today is as high as their commitment to change hasbeen strong and their belief in us unshaken. While we pledge to begin doing our best without delay,we would like to appeal to them to appreciate the gravity of our situation, so that we become more realisticin our expectations.

We will govern for you and in your interests. Your vote was not wasted. This is not the first time Nigerianshave cast their votes for us, and this is not the first time they have been counted; but this is the first timethat the votes have been allowed to count. With the help of God, we pledge to do our utmost to bringforth the Nigeria you seek.
Thank you for your patience and attention.
General Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR
Federal Republic of Nigeria

Asari Dokubo Issues a NEW Threat

Asari Dokubo, the former militant who promised to unleash violence on the country if the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan failed in election, has issued a new threat.
He promised to return “to the creeks” and blamed the Yoruba and Hausa for working against Igbo and Niger Deltans.
Dokubo said the election of General Muhammadu Buhari as president “is a clear indication that the country is not united” and blamed the Yoruba and Hausa for cooperating to frustrate Jonathan, who applauds from the Niger Delta region.
In a comment realesed by his spokesperson Rex Ekiugbo Anighoro, Dokubo saud: “Nigerian union clearly reinforces the fact of self determination and that Nigeria remains a very divided and separated entity whose claim to unity remains a fraud of gargantuan proportion.
The celebrated victory of Buhari is not the victory of the people but victory of regional conspiracy and supremacy. The voting Partern has clearly shown that the Gambari North and the Yorubas are United in the conquest of the Niger Deltans and the Igbos of defunct Biafra with the middle belt now used as pawns.
“The victory of Muhammadu Buhari is a historical reminder that we are a conquered people who are mere appendages existing at the pleasure of the supremacist and the regional overlords.
“We remain a people separated by our ideologies and interests, we are not integrated nor reconciled.”
Former militant supposed that the elect administration could endeavor to sabotage the interest of the Niger Delta and called for a return to the creeks.

He added: “The conditions that advanced the need to embrace the creeks have been sadly re energised, it is clear that a vicious government who may maim and murder the voice of the so called minorities may have just been birthed. Indeed integration is nonexistent as regional gang ups and supremacy is symbolic with this victory.
While President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan enjoys his moments and bask in the euphoria of a now world renowned statesman having congratulated Muhammadu Buhari his conqueror, we must quickly remind that our struggle was never about Jonathan nor about presidency.
“President Goodluck Jonathan was an establishment beneficiary of our struggle, our sweat and blood that many bled and died for,  he was never in the struggle and he can never wish away our collective march forward for statesmanship. Yes Indeed to an extent he was a  mitigating factor in self determination pursuit as we went on sabbatical, this mitigation he seem to have willingly repudiated.
“The days coming will be critical, we shall study all the conditions and consult widely before determining the way going forward for our collective existence and survival as a people. The days coming shall either drive the quest of integration or further separate us.”
It should be noted that the fake tweet circulated yesterday on the media. It stated that Asari Dokubo acclaimed President Jonathan and said he is a friend to any government, but later former militant denied the such news, saying that he would stay lyoyal to Jonathan.

President Goodluck Speaks After Defeat

<b></b>President Goodluck Jonathan  released an official statement, a concession speech, after the announcement of the presidential election results.
Based on the figures on the all 36 states, Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, won taking 20 states while the incumbent president took 16.
Even before the INEC gave the figures from Borno state, Jonathan called Buhari to personally congratulate him.

Here is the public message,  provided by The Nation.
“Fellow Nigerians,
“I thank you all for turning out en-masse for the March 28 General Elections.

“I promised the country free and fair elections. I have kept my word. I have also expanded the space for Nigerians to participate in the democratic process. That is one legacy I will like to see endure.
“Although some people have expressed mixed feelings about the results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), I urge those who may feel aggrieved to follow due process based on our constitution and our electoral laws, in seeking redress.
“As I have always affirmed, nobody's ambition is worth the blood of any Nigerian. The unity, stability and progress of our dear country is more important than anything else.
I congratulate all Nigerians for successfully going through the process of the March 28th General Elections with the commendable enthusiasm and commitment that was demonstrated nationwide.
“I also commend the Security Services for their role in ensuring that the elections were mostly peaceful and violence-free.
“To my colleagues in the PDP, I thank you for your support. Today, the PDP should be celebrating rather than mourning. We have established a legacy of democratic freedom, transparency, economic growth and free and fair elections.
“For the past 16 years, we have steered the country away from ethnic and regional politics. We created a Pan-Nigerian political party and brought home to our people the realities of economic development and social transformation.
“Through patriotism and diligence, we have built the biggest and most patriotic party in Nigerian history. We must stand together as a party and look to the future with renewed optimism.
I thank all Nigerians once again for the great opportunity I was given to lead this country and assure you that I will continue to do my best at the helm of national affairs until the end of my tenure.
I have conveyed my personal best wishes to General Muhammadu Buhari.
May God Almighty continue to bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
I thank you all.”
Meanwhile numerous politicians are praising Jonathan for conceding defeat. Speaking on the issue, Nigeria's former vice president Atiku Abubakar thanked GEJ for his gesture by which he won the admiration of the world.
