Mark Zuckerberg

Zuckerberg rejected the notion, countering that Facebook is working to ensure “free and fair elections” with an online platform that does not favor one side over another.
Zuckerberg’s post at Facebook on Wednesday came after Trump accused the social network of bias in a morning tweet that read:
“Facebook was always anti-Trump.The Networks were always anti-Trump hence,Fake News, @nytimes(apologized) & @WaPo were anti-Trump. Collusion?”
Early morning Twitter tizzies have become a hallmark of Trump’s presidency.
“Trump says Facebook is against him. Liberals say we helped Trump,” Zuckerberg said in his post.
“Both sides are upset about ideas and content they don’t like. That’s what running a platform for all ideas looks like.”
Facebook last week said that Russia-linked ads on the social network aimed at inflaming tensions around last year’s US presidential election will be given to Congress.
The ads sought to sow discord among Americans on hot-button social issues.

When pythons dance: IPOB, Kanu and the Biafra struggle

Image
Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu
In the wake of his disappearance, where are his lieutenants or, indeed, his foot soldiers who had vowed to storm the ‘zoo’ and make life unlivable for its inhabitants and their clueless leaders? The foregoing are relevant questions for IPOB, leaders of the group and their supporters.
And there can be no credible answer to any of the questions until such an answer recognises the difference between a genuine and strategically planned and executed struggle as opposed to the fascination with the optics of such a struggle. More on this shortly but a word first on ‘Python Dance 2’.
This is the code name of the ongoing operation embarked upon by the Nigerian military in the wake of the renewed agitation for a separate Biafran state by members of IPOB in the South-east. It was ostensibly launched to rein in the activities of kidnappers, armed robbers and other undesirable elements in its theatre of operation.
This as the country m…

Trump Administration Adds New Countries To Travel Ban

Image
Sunday the Trump administration rolled out new travel restrictions, amending its initial ban, controversially signed into action earlier this year. These new restrictions will now apply to foreigners from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezela, and Yemen with restrictions varying by country and the implementation of a ‘phased-in’ approach. “Making America Safe is my number one priority,” President Trump tweeted Sunday evening. “We will not admit those into our country we cannot safely vet,” President Donald Trump tweeted just after his administration released the details of the restrictions Sunday night.

The new ban will officially take place on October 18.

‘I Want To Enlarge My B.utt So That I Can Make Things Happen’ – Actress Cossy Ojiakor

Image
That Cossy Ojiakor has one of the biggest B00bs in the Nigerian entertainment industry, is a fact that has never been contested. Even though there have been a couple of new bloods who have displaced Cossy as the ultimate ‘boob queen’ in the industry, the part-time singer is still one to be reckoned with in that department. However, it seems Cossy is no longer satisfied with her mammoth mammary glands; she also wants bigger B.utt. She uploaded a picture of her B.utt on Instagram recently and asked for her followers’ opinion as to whether she should go under the knife for a bigger backside. In an exclusive chat with Sunday Scoop, the actress explained why she is lusting for a larger bum. “I am so happy that Nigerians are looking $exy. As a matter of fact I want to go and enlarge my B.utt. I think it is very small so I want a bigger one. I may have the surgery in December, January or any time I choose. I am seriously thinking about it. My message to everyone out there is, if you have an…

”Everyone In Nigeria Is Living In Danger And Fear” – Femi Falana

Image
Human rights lawyer Femi Falana in an interview with Punch has said it is an irony that those clamouring for the division of Nigeria are not consistently at the regions considered as their origin – while Nnamdi Kanu(IPOB leader) together with his wife has dual citizenship, Yerima Shetima (leader of Northern coalition that gave quit notice to Igbos) lives in Lagos. He said; ”’It is an irony that Kanu, who is leading the struggle for the balkanization of Nigeria, has dual citizenship, while Mr Shettima Yerima, who gave the quit notice to Igbo people in the North lives in Lagos. Everybody’s life is in danger. Nigerians are shot dead in their homes by armed robbers or on the roads by soldiers or policemen or by armed herdsmen on their farms…Even President Muhammadu Buhari had to be flown to Britain for medical attention because his life was in danger here.” He says it is not fear that made the Buhari administration to declare IPOB a terrorist organisation but the belief that the unity of…

IPOB Not A Terrorist Organisation – US Government

Image
The United States government has said that it does not see the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB , as a terrorist organisation. While the Federal Government of Nigeria has proscribed IPOB and labeled it a terrorist organization, the US government, however, said it does not see IPOB as a terrorist organisation. It said, although US is strongly in support of a peaceful resolution of internal crisis in Nigeria, however, under the United States’ laws, IPOB does not fit in as a terrorist organisation. Recall that the Nigerian army’s Director of Defence Information, Major General John Enenche, had pronounced that IPOB was a terrorist organisation after a reported clash between military personnel and IPOB members in Umuahia, Abia state. Maj.-Gen.

Inaccurate billing responsible for irregular power supply in Nigeria – Osinbajo

Image
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that the problem of irregular power supply in Nigeria is caused by inaccurate billing system resulting from insufficient metering machines.
Osinbajo made the remarks on Saturday in Onna local government area of Akwa Ibom while inaugurating an Electric Metering Factory as part of activities marking the 30th anniversary of Akwa Ibom creation.
The vice president said that Nigeria’s economic development hinged on effective power supply, lamenting that Distribution Companies (DISCOs) had not been able to collect tariffs because of non-availability of meters.
“The electric metering factory is an important project. Inadequate power is the major obstacle to full economic development in Nigeria.
“We have also identified the facts that DISCO is unable to collect tariffs effectively from consumers because we are unable to afford the cost of metering.
“I think that there is an important policy innovation as there is no restriction on those who can actually p…

Versatile dashing Nollywood actor, Dave Ogbeni, who may very well clinch the Best New Actor of the Year award at forthcoming City People Awards has nothing but huge praises for Nigerian women, saying they are the most romantic in the world. Dave poured out his heart in a one-on-one session with Potpourri over the issue of Nigerian women being romantic or not.
Dave Ogbeni “Nigerian women are among the most romantic women in the universe, that is, if they want to. When a Nigerian woman is genuinely in love with you, prepare yourself for a romantic jolly ride. As a student in University of Benin I have dated several hot ladies who were very romantic in all ramifications. And as an actor I have come across many African ladies at home and in diaspora. The way they handled me is in different ways. If you ask me of all the African women I have had something to do with, I can categorically affirm that Nigerian women are the most romantic,” he declared. Speaking further, the actor disagreed w…
