Obasanjo playing politics with his letter to President Buhari'' Bola Tinubu says
National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, yesterday said that former president Olusegun Obasanjo was playing politics with the concerns he raised about the state of the nation in his letter sent to presidnet Buhari last week. Tinubu said this when he spoke to newsmen after a meeting with Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha.
“Obasanjo wrote it about the government. It is a very good awareness on his part and they are both from the same background. I believe that is the doctrine of Military Officers (retired) because he has unrestricted access to the President, either through the Council of State or by any other means that he need to see the current President privately and he was his junior in the Army. So I think Obasanjo was playing politics with his public letter that’s all I see. He could have used other means, he met him in the AU too he has a way of discussing privately but the letter is being responded to by the government”he said
On the launch of  Obasanjo’s Coalition Movement, Tinubu said that it is too early for him to comment on the development.
''The appropriate time is not now for response on the Coalition Movement but we are in a democracy, we are in a country that is a signatory to the Charter of the United Nation which guarantees free movement, free association and free speech”he said

embrace my natural heritage and

Being featured on the m cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is. an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly. our children, that they are beautiful just. the way they are. I am disappointed that.@graziauk invited me to be on their
cover and then edited out and. smoothed. my hair to fit their notion of what. beautiful hair looks like. Had I been. consulted, I would have explained that I. cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there
is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style. and texture. #dtmh”

Man Utd 'renew Fabregas
interest', Ronaldo 'up for sale' in
Real Madrid clearout

Jose Mourinho and Cesc Fabregas have a complicated relationship, much like Sharon and Phil from EastEnders in many ways. They’ve have had their ups and downs, for sure – such as when the Spanish midfielder was accused of leading a vicious plot overthrow the Special One prior to his sacking by Chelsea, which was kind of like the time Phil hired some heavies to trash Sharon’s new pub and they ended up putting her in a coma. But love, or lust, always seems to bring them back together. And today, Mourinho is reportedly making moves to enact another passionate reunion.
The Portuguese has apparently been “warned off” bidding for his former player, but Chelsea are only willing to offer Fabregas a one-year extension to his current contract, and the former Barcelona man is demanding two years. Not for the first time, Cesc could decide that Mourinho is the only man who can give him what he wants. And as for the stuff about him leading a Chelsea revolt, that was apparently all a big misunderstanding, like the time Sharon thought Phil was cheating on her with another woman but he was actually just reconnecting with Kathy Beale on a platonic level.

Real Madrid ‘clearout’ Speaking of old flames, the Mirror is linking Arsenal with yet another bid for Karim Benzema. They just won’t let it go! The Frenchman will apparently be made available at the end of the season as part of a massive Real Madrid “clearout” that could also see Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcelo, Toni Kroos and Luca Modric being put “on the market”.

Lima is set to begin chemotherapy and radiation in the near future.

"[Devin] asked me to send you his love and gratitude for all the love and prayers you guys have sent his way," the singer shared. "He's had a tough recovery and a few really difficult days in the hospital. Thankfully he's home now resting and healing." Brad described Devin's cancer as "really rare" and "one in a million."

Fischetti continued, "I wish we had better news to share. It's devastating news but at the same time, there's nobody I know stronger than Devin Lima. No one has a stronger body, mind or soul. If anybody can defeat this, it's Devin. I know with your prayers and your thoughts and your positive energy coming down his way, there's no doubt that he will beat it."

He also expressed Devin's desire to get back to performing LFO's hit songs such as "Summer Girls," adding, "It's a motivating factor to be back on that stage again, singing again, recording new music. It's my hope and prayer that we have that opportunity again. Actually, I know that we'll have that opportunity again." In 2010, fellow LFO singer Rich Cronin lost his battle with leukemia.
