10 Years On: The Full Story Of Michael Jackson's Final Day

The story of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson's final day on earth some ten years ago, has been re-lived.
Michael Jackson News of a medical emergency involving Michael Jackson started filtering through at around 22:00 BST on Thursday 25 June 2009. I know because I was on my way to watch cheesy 90s boy band East 17 in the Dance Tent at the Glastonbury Festival. They were a warm-up act the day before the event properly began. My editor called. Michael Jackson might have been rushed to hospital. He might be in a coma. That was according to TMZ, which was gaining a reputation for celebrity scoops. But no-one knew if it was true. Strange stories about the King of Pop often bubbled up. A few weeks earlier, it had been reported that he had skin cancer, which was later denied. Even so, I turned around and headed back to the dusty backstage cabin I had just been working in and searched for an update. In London, Los Angeles and around the world, newsrooms swung into action to try t…

Graduates Who Omit NYSC Can Compete For Gubernatorials - Court rules

A High Court ruling in Abuja said that graduates who omit the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme are qualified to compete for a gubernatorial election.

Justice M.A Mohammed gave the ruling in a pre-election suit filed by Senator Iyabo Anisulowo, confronting the eligibility of Ogun state governor, Dapo Abiodun, contesting the state governorship election. Abiodun in his CFOO1 form submitted to INEC last year showed he did not have NYSC discharge certificate. Abiodun did not engage in the compulsory NYSC program, even though he finished his first degree in 1986.
Anisulowo had asked the court to disqualify Abiodun as the APC governorship candidate since he failed to participate in the mandatory NYSC scheme.
At the hearing of the case yesterday June 26th, Wale Ajayi, the counsel to the governor, asked that the court set aside the case since it was never stated that the participation in the NYSC scheme was a standard to hold public office.

The same people who blamed Jonathan each time Boko Haram struck are the same ones asking for patience when Boko Haram strikes under Buhari – Reno Omokri

According to Reno Omokri, ‘the same people who blamed GEJ each time Boko Haram struck are the same ones now asking for patience when Boko Haram strikes under President Buhari’.

He went on to say; The same people who protested when GEJ named University of Lagos after Abiola are the same people applauding Buhari for naming a dilapidated stadium after Abiola. The same people who accused Jonathan of corruption for fuel subsidy of ?600 billion are saying it is not Buhari’s fault when his fuel subsidy is double the cost at ?1 trillion. The same people who accused Jonathan of tribalism for appointing just an Ijaw man as NSA are the same men rationalising why the entire 10 intelligence and law enforcement agencies in Nigeria, along with the heads of the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary are headed by Northern Muslim men. You see, the greatest problem of Nigeria is HYPOCRISY, not CORRUPTION
