Polish EU lawmaker Janusz Korwin-Mikke on Thursday came under investigation by Parliamentarians on Thursday for making comments claiming that women “must earn less” because they were “weaker,” “smaller” and “less intelligent.”The hate speech investigation, which could result in a penalty including a fine and a temporary suspension, was launched following comments Korwin-Mikkemade during a plenary debate on gender pay gap Wednesday night.women“Of course women must earn less than men because they are weaker, they are smaller and they are less intelligent, they must earn less, that’s all,” Korwin-Mikke said.EU lawmakers, who were visibly flabbergasted by the comments, called for sanctions against Korwin-Mikke, who is thechairman of a eurosceptic, conservative party in Poland but is not affiliated with any parliamentary party at the EU.“Such statements clearlyfly in the face of the fundamental principles of gender equality in this house,” said Gianni Pittella, leader of the parliament’s social democratic bloc.
– An aggrieved Nigerian has narrated how he was duped by a Nigerian bank, blocked by its social media team- He was just got blocked for speaking up against impunity in the Unity BankI just got blocked for speaking up against impunity in the Unity Bank. Three weeks ago, my mum used the bank’s Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) and her account was debited while the machine failed to dispense. A whooping sum of eighteen thousand (in this recession) was carted away by the bank’s ATM.After twenty-four hours, Unity Bank failed to reverse the error, she did the needful by filling the ATM dispense errorform at the Gtbank.After three weeks, I engaged the bank’s social media team and after 14 hours, they called me on phone. The lady who spoke to me displayed lack of skills for such an important position, I almost toldher to resign. She assured me that they would treat my complaint.After a short while, I received a mail informing me of the procedures that I have exhausted. I went on twitter (@OTolulope) to lecture them a bit.They started asking unreasonable questions but I didn’t fall for it. I treated them with diplomacy.Alas! Unity bank blocked me from sending them private messages on Facebook and twitter.I showed them the evidence that the problem was from their end. I will fight impunity with the last drop of blood in me. I have reported them to media houses let the change begins with Unity Bank.
A Nigerian businesswoman and writer, Joy Chinenye Azubike, was hosted on “TRIPLES WITH S-BUCHI” by the event’s convener on Facebook, Solomon Buchi Bartholomew.Joy Chinenye talked about getting raped at 17, marrying her rapist at 18, and divorcing her alleged rapist/husband 6 years later on the online talkshow. According to the show’s host, “this is so far almost the most terrifying experience” he has featured on the show, as he cried while interviewing her.This is a story of rape, of how she didn’t speak out, of how she was forced into marriage, of how he abused her, would beat her and she’d loose consciousness for days, a story of how she’d pray and fast and speak in tongues but nothing changed, until she parted ways with him.

Delta State Police have arrested a 43-year-old Ngozi Ojei and Ewere Samuel (20) for selling a two-week-old baby girl to a widow for N600,000.Samuel is the mother of the baby. Samuel gave birth to the baby girl while she was Ojei’s housemaid in Aba, Abia State.But because Samuel could not identify the person who impregnated her, she and Ojeiagreed to sell the baby to avoid keeping a bastard child. They sold the baby late January to a woman simply identified as awidow.Parading them alongside suspected armed robbers, kidnappers and traffickersat the command headquarters in Asaba yesterday, the Commissioner of Police, Zanna Ibrahim, said in November 2016, Ojei asked Loveth Ojie to help her get a housemaid before she brought Samuel.“In January 2017, the said Ngozi Ojie came to Ekwuoma (in Ika North East Local Government Area of Delta State) to see the mother of Ewere Samuel after which she took her to Aba.“The said Ewere Samuel delivered a babygirl and the suspect sold the child. The suspect confessed selling the baby for N600,000,” the commissioner explained.But Ojei said she and the mother of the baby girl got N250,000 each from the proceeds.While Ibrahim said investigation was ongoing, Ojei’s husband, Mr. Edwin Ojei (50), of No. 22, MCC Osisioma Ngwa, Abia State, who was paraded alongside his wife, said:“I only came home for burial when I was arrested.”
A group, Nigerian Project for Human Development, NPHD, has joined others voices calling for the termination of popular Reality Show, Big Brother Naija.The group has petitioned the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, the Presidency and the Nigerian public that the airing Big brother Naija be stopped.Recall that a Lagos lawmaker, Segun Olulade yesterday advised the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, on the negative implications of Big Brother Naija on the nation’s cultureand youths.But in a statement by its coordinator, Dr. Mojisola Araba, NPHD claimed that the petition to cancel Big Brother Naija had gathered 10,000 signatures.According to the group, the “Petition has collected 10,000 signatures from concerned Nigerians to cancel the Reality TV Show ‘Big Brother Naija.’”It added, “The on-going TV Reality show, Big Brother Nigeria is indeed a corruption of TV Reality shows.“The Nigerian public is complaining about the moral perversity in the House of the Big Brother Nigeria.“In one episode last two weeks or so, the inmates were shown openly kissing and caressing one another. This is a celebration of obscenity, eroticism and idleness.“More importantly, it is a big mockery of Nigerian culture and tradition. Since the inmates are Nigerians, they should have been projecting the Nigerian cultural heritage. But instead of doing that, they are bastardizing it.“When Endernol, the Dutch, first conceivedthe idea of BBA in 1997, open kissing and caressing by the inmates and celebration of obscenity were never considered by him.“Even the TV Reality shows in other countries do not contain the obscenity we are watching in the on-going Big Brother Nigeria. There is a great danger in importing the destructive foreign lifestyle to Nigeria.“Explicit sexual overtures which appeal to the prurient interest in sex, damages a country’s moral ecology in an analogous way in which oil pollutant damages a country’s ecology.“The biggest tragedy of the on-going Big Brother Nigeria is that our children also glued to the TV screen watching it. Children are our future.“Therefore we should protect them from lewd exposure, which might prevent their growth into free, independent and well-developed citizens.“The Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) must live up to its bidding as a bodycharged with controlling, monitoring, regulating the electronic media and monitoring of satellite transmission in Nigeria. Our TV stations cannot become dumping grounds for all sorts of immoral programs.“NBC must stop the airing of Big Brother Nigeria now.”
At a time when the recession is biting harder than ever, there is nothing great than having to learn on or two secrets ofwealth, especially how to acquire it at anearly age.“In a free-market economy, anyone can make as much money as they want,”emphasizes self-made millionaire Steve Siebold, who has also studied over 1,200 of the world’s wealthiest people.And it’s never too early to start.To help you reach the seven-figure markby 30, we have rounded up 9 important nuggets of advice from people who became millionaires at a young age, as well as those who have studied hundreds of self-made millionaires.That one would become a millionaire cannot be quaranteed, but doing these things won’t hurt your odds.1. Focus on earning“In today’s economic environment you cannot save your way to millionaire status,” writes Grant Cardone, who went from broke and in debt at 21 to self-made millionaire by 30. “The first step is to focus on increasing your income in increments and repeating that.“My income was $3,000 a month and nine years later it was $20,000 a month. Start following the money, and it will force you to control revenue and see opportunities.”Earning more money is often easier saidthan done, but most people have options. Read about 50 ways to bring in additional income, some high-paying jobs you can do on the side, how you can earn passive income, and the first step to take before starting any business, from an entrepreneur who earns up to $170,000 a month.2. Develop multiple streams of incomeOne way to earn more is to increase your streams of income. In author Thomas C. Corley’s five-year study of self-made millionaires, he found that many of them develop multiple streams of income: 65% had three streams, 45% had four streams, and 29% had five or more streams. These additional streamsinclude real-estate rentals, stock market investments, and part-ownership in a side business.“Three streams of income seems to be the magic number for the self-made millionaires in my Rich Habits study, butthe more income streams you can create in life, the more secure will your financial house be,”he writes.3. Save to invest, don’t save to saveWrites Cardone:“The only reason to save money is to invest it. Put your saved money into secured, sacred (untouchable) accounts. Never use theseaccounts for anything, not even an emergency. This will force you to continue to follow step one (increase income). To this day, at least twice a year, I am broke because I always investmy surpluses into ventures I cannot access.”Investing is not as complicated or daunting as we make it out to be. The simplest starting point is to contribute toyour 401(k) if your employer offers one, and take full advantage of your company’s 401(k) match program — which is essentially free money — if it has one.Next, consider contributing money toward a Roth IRA or traditional IRA, individual retirement accounts with different contribution limits and tax structures — which one you can use depends on your income. If you still have money left over, you can research low-cost index funds, which Warren Buffett recommends, and look into the online-investment platforms known as “robo-advisers.”The key to consistently setting aside money is to make it automatic. That way, you’ll never even see the money you’re contributing and you’ll learn to live without it.4. Don’t show off — show up“I didn’t buy my first luxury watch or car until my businesses and investments were producing multiple secure flows of income,” writes Cardone. “I was still driving a Toyota Camry when I had become a millionaire. Be known for yourwork ethic, not the trinkets that you buy.”Need inspiration to save more and spend less? Read up on tips and strategies from regular people who saved enough of their incomes to retire before 40.5. Change your mindset about money“Getting rich begins with the way you think and what you believe about making money,”self-made millionaire Steve Siebold explains.At the end of the day,“The secret has always been the same: thinking,” he emphasizes. While the masses believe becoming wealthy is out of their control, rich people know that making money is really an inside job.”6. Invest in yourself“The safest investment I’ve ever made isin my future,”writes Tucker Hughes, who became a millionaire at 22.“Read at least 30 minutes a day, listen to relevant podcasts while driving and seekout mentors vigorously. You don’t just need to be a master in your field, you need to be a well-rounded genius capable of talking about any subject whether it is financial, political or sports related. Consume knowledge like air andput your pursuit of learning above all else.”Many modern-day successful and wealthy people are voracious readers. Take Warren Buffett, for example, who estimates that 80% of his working day isdedicated to reading.7. Set goals and visualize achieving themIf you want to make more money, you have to have a clear goal and then a specific plan for how to achieve that goal. Money won’t just appear — you have to work at it.Rich people choose to commit to attaining wealth. It takes focus, courage,knowledge, and a lot of effort, self-made millionaire T. Harv Eker emphasizes, and it’s possible if you have precise goals and a clear vision:“The number one reason most people don’t get what they want is that they don’t know what they want. Rich people are totally clear that they want wealth.”8. Hang out with people you admireAndrew Carnegie, who started with nothing before becoming the richest man in the US, credits all of his riches toone principle: the Master Mind.The idea is to surround yourself with talented people who share your vision, because the alignment of several smart and creative minds is exponentially more powerful than just one.Plus, we become like the people we associate with, which is why the rich tend to associate with others who are rich.“In most cases, your net worth mirrors the level of your closest friends,”explains Siebold.“Exposure to people who are more successful than you are has the potential to expand your thinking and catapult your income. The reality is, millionaires think differently from the middle class about money, andthere’s much to be gained by being in their presence.”9. Shoot for $10m, not $1m“The single biggest financial mistake I’ve made was not thinking big enough,”writes Cardone.“I encourage you to go for more than a million. There is no shortage of money on this planet, only a shortage of people thinking big enough.”Source: Business Insider.

He said do not worry my son, I will be with you. If you are wondering why my case is different, it is because God told me that He will be with me and He has been faithful to His promise.”He also narrated some unpalatable experiences he had in repositioning the church.All parishes of mission, yesterday celebrated theend of the 40-day fastingand prayer which commenced on Wednesday, January 11, 2017.

Mrs Ronke Kehinde, a style editor with the defunct Compass newspaper, has recounted her experience on how she was almost kidnapped with a flyer.In an interview with Tribune, she recounted how she collected a lethal flyer innocently in broad daylight on the streets of Lagos and she was almost kidnapped after that. All thanks to her faulty car air-conditioner!Mrs Ronke KehindeRead her experience below:”I was coming from Computer village, Ikeja last week Wednesday, driving towards Ikeja General Hospital. There was a traffic hold-up due to the traffic light under the bridge that was on red at the time. Then, a lady appeared from theblues with flyers in her hand. She was by the passenger’s window, but her hands were already inside my car, holding the flyer to my face. It was property sales flyer. I wasn’t interested, but I took it, because I wanted her to go so I could drive on. At this time, the traffic light had turned green. I took the flyer from her and dropped it on the seatbeside me. As soon as I moved, I noticed something strange. I was feelingsome sensation in my eyes.PAY ATTENTION:Get all the latest gossips on OLAXALI SUPER App”They were peppery. I looked at the flyer suspiciously and quickly threw it on the floor of the car, because I wasn’t sure if what I was feeling was as a result of the flyer or where I was at that time. I took the roundabout turning beside LASUTH, then connected the flyover near Awolowo House on Oba Akran Road. AsI continued to drive, I was feeling so dizzy and uncomfortable. My eyes were getting unbearably peppery. Curiously, as I was getting close to Guinness, I noticed a light brown car following me. There were three men in the car. Anytime they got to my side, in the traffic, they would all look at me intensely.”It was at this point I realised somethingwas wrong. It was then I started suspecting a set up. I stuck my head outside the window while driving, so I could get fresh air because I was actually choking.”I suspected that those guys were expecting to see an unconscious woman. The lady that gave me the flyer must be working with them.When they noticed that I was fully conscious because I was looking at them, they stopped following me.”On her advice to the public, she said:”I will say people should not read the flyers given to them on the road immediately. If it is folded flyers, they should not open it. They should wait till they get to a safe place before they openit. Some police officers called to rejoice with us, and they offered some security tips to apply in such dangerous situation.”One of them said the best thing to do is to drive to the nearest police station when you are being followed. He said when they see you driving towards the station they will know that this is a bad market.They also advised that if you already have a suspected flyer or card inyour car, please don’t put on the air conditioner of your car. Put down the windows of your car to give room for cross ventilation. If my A/C had not been faulty, maybe the story would havebeen different.”
