President Buhari is trying to jail Obasanjo?

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of plotting to arrest and detain him.

In a statement by his media aide, Kehinde Akinyemi, Obasanjo claims there is a plan by the current government to “frustrate, intimidate and blackmail him into abandoning his divine mandate to protect the rights of the people to better life”.

The statement claims that the former president is now on the security watchlist of the government and there is an attempt to “hang a crime” on him. It further reads, “The content of the alleged beastly designs, it was learnt are two-fold for now. One, to seize his International Passport and clamp him into detention indefinitely, in order to prevent him from further expressing angst on the pervasive mediocrity in the quality of governance, economic management and in the protection of lives and property by the government.”

Chef, writer and host of CNN’s Parts Unknown, Anthony Bourdain has died after committing suicide in his hotel room in France.

He was found unresponsive by a French chef, Eric Ripert in the early hours of today. According to CNN, Bourdain was in France working on the latest episode of his show.

The news of Bourdain’s death comes only days after the death of handbag designer, Kate Spade who also died in a case of suicide.

There has been an outpouring of tributes on social media since the news of Bourdain’s death broke, with many emphasising on the need to reach out to friends and family in distress.

TwitterNG is still upset about Chimamanda Adichie’s opinion on holding doors

Remember Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie appeared on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah recently and shared her opinion on people holding the door for women?

She said, “I think it’s a lovely thing to hold the door but we should hold the door for everyone. Like, I hold the door for men and for women. And so I think the idea of someone holding the door for a woman because she’s a woman… I have trouble with it.”

It appears a lot of TwitterNG users are not quite pleased with Adichie’s stance and the others? They just don’t get the fuss:

June 12 is NOT a public holiday – Federal Government 

It is with pain that we bring you this heartbreaking piece of news from the Federal Government of Nigeria.

Days ago, when President Muhammadu Buhari announced that June 12 would now replace May 29 as Democracy Day, a group of Nigerians rejoiced only for the hope of another public holiday next week.

But those hopes have now been dashed as the Federal Government has clarified that June 12 will not be a national public holiday for now but may be considered in “future years”.

Whew! A lot of us needed that extra break, to be honest.
