I am tired of having children, Annie needs me more — 2face

2face Idibia recently declared that he was tired of having babies and that he wants to concentrate on his marriage to Annie, the mother of his last two children.

According to the music star, it was time for him to give more time to his wife and ensure that the family gets the best of his attention as they continue to grow together.

He stated this last weekend at Gbenga Adeyinka’s Laffmatazz in Ibadan, after performing his hit tracks at the show.

While performing, he frequently used spiritual words like “receive it”, “take it” and when asked if the words he was saying on the stage ironically means that he was planning to have more children, he was quick to deny the insinuation with a declaration that he was done as far as having babies is concerned.

“I am tired of having babies. At this point in my life, I want to show my family all the love and support they deserve. I love my wife and there is not going to be anything like have babies outside wedlock.

All I need to do now is to show love to my family and friends who stood by me over the years”, he said.

I revealed those behind Boko Haram to Jonathan – Maharaj Ji

The Spiritual Leader of One Love Family, Satguru Maharaj Ji, has said that he had revealed the sponsors of the sect to President Goodluck Jonathan two years ago.

Guru who recently declared that both sponsors of the group and those behind the April 14 bombing at Nyanya Park in Abuja that claimed scores of lives would face repercussions of their action before the end of October.

In an interview with Daily Independent, the spiritualist said “I had told President Goodluck Jonathan those behind these nest of killers (Boko Haram) through several publications.”

“I have asked the President to arrest them before now because they said after the 2011 general elections that because power did not return to the North, they would make the nation ungovernable.

“The spirit of the creator is against them. They are going to be dealt with. I will call them to order in the interest of innocent Nigerians, enough of the bloodletting.

“If President Jonathan had listened to the advice I gave him two years ago when I was at Aso Rock, all the killings by Boko Haram would have stopped. After my visit to the villa, the bombings stopped but because those in government did not continue to tap from my spiritual grace, the bombers returned.

“Nigeria belongs to all of us. As Living Perfect Master, I cannot be here and all these continue. I am challenging the Northern leaders to an open debate on a national television.

“Let them swear by the name of the Creator and all the seven elements of the earth that their actions were not the direct reflection of Boko Haram onslaught.”

Boko Haram: I warned Jonathan but he was lackadaisical – Soyinka

Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, yesterday blamed the escalating activities of terrorists in the country on President Goodluck Jonathan.

According to Soyinka, the problem would have been over if Jonathan had sought international assistance long ago before the situation reached this height.

The literary doyen also blamed Jonathan for not heeding to his earlier warnings, and waking up to challenge the insurgency “very late and lackadaisically.”

He spoke on Tuesday during a global affairs interview television programme, Amanpour, on Cable News Network, monitored by our correspondent in Lagos.

Soyinka described the video released by the leader of the sect, Abubakar Shekau, as “gleeful obscenity” and called on the international community to intervene.

He said, “President Jonathan should have asked for it (assistance) from the very beginning. I don’t believe in false pride. The history of the movement to which Boko Haram belongs is one which is a menace to the entire world.

“This is a government which is not only in denial mentally but is in denial of certain obvious steps to take. It is the missing humanity that the problem will go away; an attitude that occurs in the subconscious.

“But, one thing is certain, the President and his government cannot sleep easily after what has happened to Nigeria. The era of denial and indifference has ended. The situation has now gone beyond the President and the solution must be internationalised.”

He decried the slow response of the Federal Government to the news of the abduction of the female pupils of the Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, Soyinka said, the development was “really agonising.”

“The government of the nation is in serious trouble. The person who has no excuse is the President of the nation. I’m calling now not on the nation but on the international community to take action. This is a global problem and the foothold is being very deeply entrenched in West Africa,” Soyinka added.

Details Of Abducted Muslim Girls That Are Being Raped In Sambisa Forest

In Chibok Local Government in Borno state, 90% of the people there are Christians. That, accounts for majority of the girls abducted to be Christians!

But, Why did Boko Haram visit Chibok Local Government? Why didn’t they visit so many other Local Government Girls Secondary Schools in Borno State where we have more Muslims?
