Ms. Osori made the announcement on Tuesday in Abuja while briefing journalists at the APC national secretariat. Ms. Osori emerged winner at the recent AMAC/Bwari federal constituency primary in the Federal Capital Territory.
Aisha OforiMs. Osori, who was presented with the membership card of the APC, told journalists she decided to defect after watching the APC primary because she believed in APC’s vice presidential candidate, Yemi Osibanjo, who was her lecturer at one time.
“I decided to denounce membership after watching the APC conduct its presidential primary in a fair and competitive manner and after seeing the combination of Osibanjo and Buhari, both men of integrity,” Ms. Osori said.
“Osibanjo used to teach me at the University of Lagos, faculty of law, I believe that is a great combination that would move the country forward and I want to be part of that team,’’ she said.
According to her, the APC slogan “Change” is enough reason to support the party as she was sure of winning the on the platform of APC.
Ms. Osori noted that more than 70 per cent of Nigerians were youth who wanted the change that “APC represents’’.
On what her contribution would be to ensure the success of the APC at the general elections, Ms. Osori, who leads the non-governmental organization, Nigerian Women’s Trust Fund, cited experience.
“The years of experience I garnered in the private sector as a lawyer and also as writer, first with Thisday and later with Leadership newspapers, will be of value to APC.
Reacting to the defection, the APC National Secretary, Mai-Mala Buni, who presented the membership card to Ms. Osori, expressed delight because his party was waxing stronger by the day.
“Such event will be a continuous thing. Our doors are open. Everybody, who is ready to join the party, is welcome anytime, any day,’’ he said. (NAN)
7 YEAR OLD GIRL REVEALS THAT ADEBOYE,TB JOSHUA, OYEDEPO,ORITSEJAFOR, OLUKOYA AND OTHERS WILL NOT MAKE HEAVEN
Seven year old Iretioluwa is like every other children, but what makes her different is her spiritual
proclamations, which makes her an extra-human being. When we were invited by her parents saying “our daughter wants you”. It was like a call not too clear.
But upon enquiry made by our editor, we discovered that it was not just a call but a diving call that requires a diving response.
The picture above appeared somewhere in my Instagram feed today and yes, Deborah is hot, if that is her.
Vice Presidential Candidate of the APC, Prof Yemi Osibajo says it is only Nigerians who love hunger that will return the present administration into office in 2015. He said this at a town hall meeting for artisans, tradesmen and farmers organised by the Lagos state government at the state secretariat yesterday December 30th 2015.
“No one is ignorant of all that is happening to us in this country. No one likes hunger and poverty; but people are hungry. In 2015, only those who love to continue to be hungry would prefer that the government in power at the centre remains there. By God’s grace, we would remove them from the seat of power. The people there presently cannot do anything, because they don’t know how to. They lack the capacity and capability to govern the country. I pray for the farmers and artisans that the Lord will bless us in the incoming year.” he said
Text of the New Year message to Nigerians by the National Leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu...
As we enter a New Year today, it is all too easy to give in to despair and despondency at the current state of Nigeria. The gap between our tremendous potentials as a country and our actual attainments is depressing and disheartening. For a country as endowed with human, material and natural resources as Nigeria, the level of poverty in which the vast majority of our people live is appalling and unacceptable. The voodoo statistics of illusory growth and progress peddled by those currently in charge of Nigeria’s affairs do not reflect the dire material circumstances of millions of Nigerians.
The ever widening inequality between the wealthy minority and the impoverished majority is fueled largely by a scale of corruption and outright theft of public funds that have reached unprecedented heights in today’s Nigeria.

Redeemed Christian Church of God has the highest number of members, compared to other churches and religious organizations in Nigeria, and when one of its pastors becomes vice-presidential candidate of the opposition, All Progressives Congress (APC), and another top pastor drops sound bites, criticizing the present administration, President Goodluck Jonathan should be awfully concerned.
Genevieve Nnaji has become a chief. She was installed today as the EzeAda of Amuzu Nweafor in Imo State. Her parents and the Onwugbenu twins were present at the event. She disclosed the news on Twitter earlier today with a photo captioned, ” STOP #letmeReintroducemyself ..Chief G.N (MFR) #EzeAdaof #AmuzuNweafor #NwaanyiMbaise.”
The gruesome murder of Rose Aifuwa. an Austrian based woman in Benin.She was allegedly killed by her lover ,a spare parts dealer named Festus Aimufua pictured above.
According to PMnews....Rose Aifuwa, who returned home for the Christmas and New Year holiday, allegedly met her death on Christmas eve in the hands of the suspect when she went to demand for the redemption of debt running into millions of naira from the sale of goods she imported for him.
The suspect who resided at Upper Mission road by Aduwawa, in Ikpoba Okha local government area of the state, was said to have murdered the deceased at her residence located on Lucky Way in Benin, during a heated argument.
A woman who just landed in Nigeria from the United States of America to celebrate the Christmas in her village in Anambra State, wept uncontrollably at the Maza-Maza area of Lagos State on Tuesday after a luggage carrier (porter) disappeared with her items, including $8,000 dollars (N1.4 million).
Eyewitnesses said the America-based woman, simply identified as Nkechinyere, alerted a load carrier to help her carry her luggage to one of the interstate buses at the Maza-Maza Motor Park.
The woman only looked away briefly and before she knew it, the load carrier had disappeared with her luggage containing $8,000, her passport and other important documents.
One of the eyewitnesses said the woman boarded a cab from FESTAC Town to Maza-Maza, where she wanted to board an interstate bus to Anambra State.
He said all efforts to trace the load carrier were abortive.
The woman was said to have arrived Maza-Maza around 6am on Tuesday from the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, to board a bus to the eastern part of the country before the unfortunate incident happened.
The eyewitness said: “As soon as the load carriers sighted the woman, about five of them converged on her.
“Everyone expected them to offload the luggage and put them in the bus heading to Anambra State.
“One of them walked away with the woman’s luggage.”
Nkechinyere was said to have broken down and wept after she realized she would never see her luggage, money and international passport again.
Nkechinyere reportedly screamed and asked no one in particular: “This man has killed me!
“All my traveling documents and $8,000 were in that bag.
“Where do I start now?
“Who will assist me?
“The other load carriers said they have never seen the man before.
“How do I go back to Los Angeles (USA)?
“I never knew Nigeria is still as bad as this!”
The chairman of the park, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said: “This is festive season.
“We have warned all our passengers to be wary of the load carriers.
“Before Christmas, we tried to identify load carriers in every motor park in Maza-Maza to avoid what we are witnessing today.
The Edo State Police Command of the Nigeria Police Force has declared a manhunt for a suspected witness of a dastardly murder that was likely committed in the early hours of Christmas Day.
The manhunt followed the arrest by the Ikpoba Hill Police Division of the suspected murderer, Mr. Festus Aimufua, for the wicked murder of one Ms. Rose Aifuwa, a middle-aged Benin woman based in Austria, who had come home in a healthy, hale and hearty condition to celebrate the Christmas and New Year festivities with her family and friends.
Mr. Aimufua, who was said to be a lover of Ms. Aifuwa before she travelled to Austria, murdered the
deceased and thereafter dumped her corpse on the road along Upper Mission Street extension around Oando Filling Station in Benin City in the early hours of Christmas Day.
The gory sight of the woman’s physically assaulted and mangled body on the tarred road of the highly populated market street soon attracted a large crowd of onlookers some of whom would in no time identify her corpse and family, resulting to the invitation of the police and eventually, investigation into her sudden death.
In spite of the scanty information surrounding the death, the state police command soon began to unravel the mystery surrounding the woman’s death with the arrest of the lover in connection to the murder.
Saturday Mirror reliably gathered that Mr. Aimufua, the alleged murderer and lover popularly known as “Two Million,” might have killed the deceased after she insisted on collecting a certain amount of money running into millions of naira, which he allegedly owed her.
Sources said the debt accrued from the unpaid spare parts the woman supplied the lover boy
who owns a spare parts shop in Benin City.
As at the time of filing this report, the police had already began its search for an alleged accomplice of the murder, who witnessed and possibly assisted the prime suspect to carry out the heinous act.
Saturday Mirror further gathered that the case would be transferred to the State Crime Investigation Department (SCID) for a detailed investigation of the murder.
While police investigations continue, family members and residents of the community have been calling for justice for the family of the dead since Christmas Day.

He said: “First and foremost, I have to use this opportunity to appreciate our leader, President Babangida, for his leadership, his commitment to ensuring that this country is united and we live in peace.
“Of course, you know that this is the end of the year. Within this period, people pay visits. So I have come to visit him. You know he just came back from a hospital abroad, not too long ago. Since he came back, we have not seen. I need to see my father to know how he is feeling. I am quite pleased the way I have seen him.
“Of course, you all know that as a nation, we are facing challenges: security challenges all over, not just in the North. Yes, Boko Haram in the North. The South is not safe: Commercial kidnapping and robbery.
“He is one of our experienced leaders. As somebody who is sitting where he was before, I need to see them from time to time to listen to their suggestions. That is one of the areas where we can collectively move the country forward and ensure that Nigerians live in peace.
“That is the key thing and I am quite pleased that we had a fruitful discussion”.
Also speaking to journalists, Babangida said the President means well for this country and every Nigerian who means well for the country should support him.
“What I will say is simple: The President means well for this country and he is working well for this country. Anybody who means well for this country should support the President to make sure that Nigeria survives as a united country”, the former leader said.

Harmony is a budding actress and musician. She opened up in a chat where she spoke about her very private matters, like how she likes sex and what turns her on. Her words;
“Sex is nice, everybody needs it. So long as you do it with the right person and you don’t regret after doing it, sex is good for everyone. It makes your mind open, it makes your body open, you think nicely after having sex, so long you do it with the right person and at the right time. The last time I had sex was four days ago in South Africa”
Are there many women who would tell you what turns them on or make them wet?
Hell no. But Susan Ekwe alias Harmony didn’t bat an eyelid when she threw it at us.
“ I can’t have sex with a guy that I cannot kiss. Kisses make me wet, sucking on my nipples makes me wet too” she said.
Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson has denied being a lesbian. Yvonne spoke to Vanguard’s Ekerete Udoh in New York, where she denied ever being one and said she only plays the role in movies. And as a professional she must act any role given to her.
Lesbianism is against my religious beliefs, it’s against my cultural norms and I think it was very mischievous for people to insinuate such about someone they hardly knew. The rumor was started by a notorious website in Ghana last year when they reported that they had never seen me with a man. In their warped and twisted calculation, I was thus a lesbian. Can you imagine such crass reasoning?
That they had not seen me with a man, and may have seen me with my girlfriends going out to have fun, and then automatically I was a lesbian. It was a hatchet job – an attempt to discredit me, but they all failed. I am heterosexual and would remain one till the end. When you are in the public light as I have been blessed and privileged to being, your life becomes a public property and some mischievous people will say all manner of things about you. It comes with the territory, so I forgive them”, Oshey
The Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, has responded to accusations by the Nigerian army that his platform is a propaganda media for terrorism and Boko Haram.
Mr Sowore said the Nigerian army has been reduced to a petty organization
"The Nigerian Army has been reduced to a petty organization. The other day they deployed their men chasing after newspaper delivery vans across Nigeria because some were critical of their handling of the anti-terrorism fight. Since they can’t find or arrest our copies, they’ve resorted to cheap blackmail. The content of the petition clearly speaks to how Boko Haram could be defeated, and states why they haven’t been defeated" Sowore said.

Emami's 5th wedding anniversary
Three persons including a female sex worker and her clients were Thursday midnight burnt to death as a mysterious fire razed a popular commercial sex spot near Orhowhurun Roundabout, Udu local government area, Delta state.
Properties worth millions of naira were also reportedly lost to the inferno which also gutted adjoining trading shops and residential buildings.
Cause of the incident was still in doubt when Saturday Vanguard got to the scene but speculations were rife that the fire began at about 1am, Boxing Day, from one of the rooms occupied by one of the commercial sex workers at a popular brothel in the area.
Corpses of the victims, one young man and that of a young lady believed to be in her thirties were burnt beyond recognition, sympathizers explained.
The raging fire, it was gathered, extended to other apartments and near-by buildings through electricity cables, taking out provisions, electric and pharmaceutical shops in the affected buildings.
“Corpses of the lady and most likely her male client were found on the same spot”, a witness told Saturday Vanguard after their remains were taken to an undisclosed morgue.

The vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the 2015 presidential election, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, on Thursday said the country needed a man of integrity, such as the APC’s flag bearer, Maj. Gen. Muhamadu Buhari, to end corruption in the country.
Osinbajo, who joined passengers in the Bus Rapid Transit from the Tafawa Balewa Square to Barracks area of Lagos, urged Nigerians to vote for Buhari, saying the former military Head of State is the only one that can curb corruption in the country.
The former Lagos State Commissioner for Justice addressed passengers in the bus, saying he would utilise “unusual opportunities to reach out to Nigerians on the need to vote out the PDP.”
He said, “Every Nigerian knows that Maj. Gen. Buhari is a no-nonsense person. He is going to make changes that would turn Nigeria around for the better. Remember that the APC is the party of change. Collect your PVC and ensure that you vote for the APC.
“The only way to make an omelet is to break an egg. You have to do something and I think that all of us, whatever it is that we are involved in must be interested in making a difference in this country. This country needs help desperately. Considering the economy and the security challenges, everyone of us must be involved in trying to get a change.”
While responding to a question by one of the BRT passengers, identified as Mfawa Edet, on whether Buhari was sponsoring Boko Haram, Osinbajo dismissed the allegations as “pure propaganda.” He noted that if Buhari was sponsoring the Boko Haram sect, they would not have attempted to kill him.
APC VP candidate, Professor Yemi Osinbajo turned up at the Lekki Palms on Christmas Eve in the company of carolers and choreographers. He made a short speech, wished everyone a Merry Christmas and went around the mall, shaking hands with people, signing autographs and taking selfies.More pics after cut..
