MISS IMO, MISS BOLD & BEAUTIFUL NIGERIA 2018 PROFILE

MISS IMO
My name is Odusanmi Olamide Ayobami from Osun state. I am 23 years old. My hobbies are traveling, dancing and listening to music. I live by the principles of honesty and simplicity.
I have always dreamt of being a beauty queen but I didn't have the opportunity. But now I see the opportunity I figured it will be a great time to give it a shot.

Don't let anybody tell you are not good enough. Being a plus size is not a barrel. Also to do a lot of studies learn new things everyday to be knowledgeable. And to give what you can do.
I want to change that impression. I want people to look at me and say her beauty and body is 20 percent of what makes her attractive. I want to be remembered as the queen that had beauty with a purpose. Whoever will take over from me has to know that being miss big bold and beautiful Nigeria is not all about the glamour and the fame, she has to know that same point, she will step down from that realm and actually get to work.

MISS EBONYI, MISS BOLD & BEAUTIFUL NIGERIA 2018 PROFILE

MISS EBONYI
I am Ironua Nkechinyere Okoh,I am nineteen years, a nursing student of Abia State University Uturu. I hail from Ndi Ojiaku Abam Arochukwu L.G.A, Abia State. I am contesting to become MBBN because as a Nigerian, I would be given the opportunity to uphold the rights of every plus sized lady, addressing the issue of Nigerians thinking that being plus sized is a disadvantage to girls making them feel that they do not have opportunities in the society and cannot attain greater heights therefore reducing their self esteem to the minimum. And as the Queen, I would encourage every plus sized girl out there no matter their ethnicity, religion, culture and tradition that she can do anything and become whoever she wants to be despite her size. Being fat is not a barrier, being thick is not also a barrier. I would put an end to abuse of every Nigerian lady which falls in the category of being plus sized.

MISS ABUJA, MISS BOLD & BEAUTIFUL NIGERIA 2018 PROFILE

MISS ABUJA

My name is favour Attamah, I'm from nsukka in enugu state. I'm currently a final year student at the federal college of dental technology and therapy Enugu. I'm 22 years old. I love cooking, traveling, making new friends, listening to good music, dancing (even though I'm not a very good dancer), I like talking too (i could pass for a presenter). I was the miss bold and beautiful of my school 2015/2016 academic session. I'm in this contest because it's something I have always looked out for. It's a platform that appreciates the diversity in the size of African women, I trust it to give a voice to chubby, fat and plus ladies and I want to be a part of that movement. If crowned the queen I intend to use my position to reach out to all those who have been denied sensitive positions, offices, those who have lost out in relationships and life changing opportunities as a result of their body sizes, I want to let them know it can be recovered because size  is not a barrier. Thick ladies to the world!!!

MISS ABIA, MISS BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL NIGERIA 2018 PROFILE

MISS ABIA
My name is Azih Sophia. I am 19yrs old. I was born on the 4th of November 1999. I am currently a student of the University of Nigeria Enugu campus (UNEC) studying medicine and surgery 300level.  I am from Ogbunike in Oyi local government Anambra state.  My motivation for joining this contest was nothing other than the fact that it is for thick girls. Everyone is given hope when there is life and for some reason I don’t see why the world believes that only the slim or smaller girls have potential or some things are just meant for the slim girls only. Not to forget that so many thick girls out there are really beautiful and sexy beyond reasonable doubt. Anything a slim girl can do, thick girls can do as well. We may not be 100% perfect but I know that we are all special in our own different ways.
I have a lot of talents and my best is dancing. Most people are always surprised when they see me dance because they believe that since I am thick I can’t move my body well. But shame on them cause I can do a whole lot of things that they can’t imagine.
If I am crowned MISS BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL NIGERIA 2018, I would be very proud of myself and knowing that people believe in me would make me really happy. And as a Queen I have a kingdom and I have my subjects to love and fend for and also to protect them. So as the Queen I will do my best to serve my people and help my kingdom blossom.

It is a great privilege and honor to become one of the candidates for Miss bold and beautiful Nigeria and since the organization will be helping people realize that their  body size is not a barrier whereas this year's theme to "kick out body shaming" As the queen I would like to join this movement in creating awareness and enlightening people more on how to appreciate their body, not just for plus size women and men but for people who have been tagged unfit for certain roles in the society because of their body size.

MISS EKITI, MISS BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL NIGERIA 2018 PROFILE

MISS EKITI
My name is Nnamani Sandra Chinecherem, I am 19years old. I am from Akpugo Nkanu west local government area, Enugu State. I am a 300 Level student of the department of Food Science and Technology in Enugu State University of Science and Technology. I reside in Kaduna State where I was born and brought up. I live there with my family. I am the first of four children.
I am a plus sized lady, dark in complexion, I weigh 104KG, I am 5Ft 4Inches tall and my statistics are 50, 44, 53.
My hobbies are dancing, cooking, visiting new places, making researches and reading novels. I like honesty a lot because I believe it’s the best policy. I dislike liars, being cheated on and deceit.
I am in this contest to gain an opportunity to discover my strengths and perfect them, realize my weaknesses and transform them into strengths. I always wanted to have a chance to perform, to showcase my talents on stage. I am also in this contest because in our society, people marginalize fat women a lot, and no one ever really speaks up for them, so I am contesting for this to show them that fat people can also be models, and have a voice. To also show them that big people are worth all the sauce and that beauty has no size limit.
I intend to use this opportunity if crowned the queen, to correct the views of society towards fat women. I will empower fat women and give them a voice. I will make sure I create a platform where fat women would be given health tips on how to live a healthy life.
Besides empowering fat people, I also intend to create awareness to all the girls who have lost hope and have less belief in themselves or who have low esteem in their appearance and think that being a certain size in today’s society is the norm, but being a large size woman would not stop the ability to achieve greater things.
I will teach them how to be confident in themselves, in their own skin and how to go for what they want, anything thinkable is achievable.
I also intend to visit female adolescents and educate them on puberty, because female children between the ages of 10 and 14 are young and na├»ve and ‘it can be alarming and embarrassing when it occurs suddenly. If given the opportunity, I will visit the orphanage homes and offer help to them.

MISS BENUE, MISS BOLD & BEAUTIFUL NIGERIA, 2018 PROFILE


MISS BENUE
I am Neto Onuoha, I hail from Igbo-Eze local government area, Enugu state. I am a graduate of Zoology and Environmental Biology, University of Nigeria; Nsukka. My hobbies are singing, cooking, reading, dancing, baking, playing badminton and meeting new people in no other of priority. My strengths are my attitude that I believe I CAN do anything I put my mind to, self-motivated, ability to take success and failure in a balanced manner and I am a fast learner. My ethic is to be the change I want to see in the world.
Back in secondary school where body shaming starts, I discovered that most girls in lieu to the fact that they could not control their body development and size, developed low self-esteem which affected their confidence, their day to day activities and their productivity. This geared me towards taking part in this honorable contest.
I want to use this event to spread the message that size is not a limiting factor to actions and dreams one chooses to achieve but the ability to overcome hurtful words love and accept you over the increasing urge to be accepted in the society as a norm. In other words, I dare plus-sized ladies to be unique, bold and unstoppable. I want to encourage them to appreciate those stretch marks, belly rolls, big hands and size for that is our uniqueness and hence does not affect our inner beauty of character, creativity, and overall greatness.
To support my awareness of self-acceptance and being limitless as a queen I would support the plus-sized in business and skill acquisition by hosting empowerment programs and self-acceptance seminars across the nation. The key to self-love is truly loving and being happy with oneself.

Two Escape Death As Fire Guts EFCC Office

At least two persons escaped death while equipment worth millions of naira was damaged after a fire incident at the  old head office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in the Wuse 2 area of Abuja on Monday.

Although the cause of the fire could not be ascertained as of press time, it was learnt that the fire started from the ICT department which formerly served as the newsroom.

The EFCC said in a statement by its acting spokesman, Mr. Tony Orilade, that the damage would have been worse if not for the timely arrival of men of the Federal Fire Service.
This happened in the evening.


Buhari to study governors’ position on N30,000 wage


President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday met with representatives of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF) over the proposed N30,000 minimum wage logjam.

It was not immediately clear what the Aso Villa, Abuja meeting decided. The governors did not brief the media.

A source, however, said the governors stuck to their line of argument that should they be made to pay the least paid worker N30,000, their states should earn more from the Federal purse.

“They presented a document to the President, saying only Lagos can pay N30,000 and asking that the revenue allocation formula be adjusted for them to pay,” the source added, pleading not to be named.



The President was said to have collected the document and promised to study it. He is believed to be planning to compare it with what the tripartite committee proposed and get back to the governors.

The Ama Pepple Tripartite Committee on the Review of National Minimum Wage on November 6, submitted its report to the President and recommended N30,000 as the new national minimum wage.

The President expressed his commitment to ensuring the implementation of a new national minimum wage and pledged to transmit an Executive bill (on National Minimum Wage) to the National Assembly for its passage within the shortest possible time.

He was delighted that the committee had successfully completed its assignment.

However, the governors expressed reservation over the proposed N30,000 new minimum wage, saying the state governments were not in a stable financial position to pay. Many are unable to pay N18,000 — the current minimum wage.

The Chairman of the Governors’ Forum and Governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji Abdul’aziz Yari, at the end of an emergency meeting of the governors in Abuja, on November 15, said paying N30, 000 was impracticable.

NAN reports that representatives of the Governors’ Forum, who met with the President over the issue, included Governors of Zamfara, Lagos, Kaduna and Enugu. The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, was also in attendance.

Chairman Trade Union Congress (TUC), Kwara State chapter Kolawole Olumoh, urged governors to cut down their expenses on political appointees and others.

Olumoh said this would enable the governors save funds to pay the N30, 000 minimum wage.

According to him, some governors appointed many political office holders with jumbo pay that do not justify their functions, at the expense of the core civil servants.

He noted that complaints by the governors over inadequate revenue would not arise, if they cut their expenses on political appointees.

Olumoh said most governors appointed special assistants or advisers who were not relevant to governance.

“It is surprising that the governors could renege on their initial agreement at the tripartite meeting where it was agreed that they would pay the N30, 000 minimum wage or,” he said.

He urged the Federal Government to put in place measures that would give workers value, for the new minimum wage to avoid inflation in the prices of goods and food stuff.

The TUC chairman hoped that President Buhari would soon sign the White Paper report on the new minimum wage for passage to the National Assembly.

According to him, this will hasten its full implementation.

He, however, urged workers to continue to exercise patience, assuring them that everything would be done to ensure their interest is properly taken care of.

Buhari greets Jonathan at 61




President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday praised former President Goodluck Jonathan, saying his predecessor was an inspiration to Nigerian youths.

Buhari gave the compliments in a message to congratulate Jonathan on his 61st birthday.

The former President turns 61 today and he billed to make public his memoir, My Transition Hours, to mark the event.

Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, in a statement, said the President joined Jonathan in celebrating his birthday.



He also commended Jonathan for the publication of his memoir, saying it was the right way to go.

The President called on Nigerians to emulate Jonathan by writing more memoirs to share their experiences.

However, the statement didn’t say whether Buhari too would write his own memoir after leaving office in 2019 or 2023, whichever would come first.

The statement said Buhari “believes the life journey of the former President remains an inspiration to every young Nigerian of the possibilities that await anyone willing to learn, work hard and participate in making the country great”.

It was observed that Buhari has lately praised his predecessor, seizing available opportunities to extol his virtues.

Buhari, the first opposition candidate to successfully defeat an incumbent President in Nigeria, on October 19, showered praise on Jonathan for accepting defeat.

Sambo Dasuki will be tried in absentia – Court


The Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday ordered that the trial of detained former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, on charges of money laundering and illegal possession of firearms would proceed in his absence.

Justice Ahmed Mohammed, in making the order, invoked the provision of section 352(4) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015, which allows the trial of a defendant to proceed in their absence if there is no reasonable explanation for the absence of the defendant.

The judge fixed December 11 for the continuation of trial with or without Dasuki in court.

He noted that the ex-NSA, who will be three years old in the custody of the Department of State Services by December 30, 2018, wrote a letter dated November 12, 2018 to the court informing the court of his unwillingness to appear in court for his trial.


Justice Mohammed added that Dasuki’s letter, coupled with his absence from court on November 13, the day after he wrote the letter, and on Monday, had shown that he was no longer interested in appearing in court for trial.

The judge ruled, “It is very clear that the defendant is not willing to be attending court for his trial.

“I hereby invoke the provision of section 352(4) of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act by ordering the trial proceed in his absence.”

Earlier moving the application for the invocation of section 354(2) of ACJA, the prosecuting counsel, Mr. Dipo Okpeseyi (SAN), informed the court that the prosecution had complied with the earlier order of the court directing the prosecution to file an affidavit stating that the ex-NSA had refused to attend court.

He noted that the retired military officer had refused to attend four court sessions since January 2018.

Okpeseyi said, “He has been absent for four times. To compound the effrontery, he wrote to this court.

“That is a direct challenge to the authorities of this court.

“We urge this court not to take the challenge lightly.”

But opposing the application, defence counsel, Mr. Victor Okwudiri, challeged the competence of the affidavit, which he said failed to bear the seal of the lawyer who deposed to it.

He maintained that the failure to affix the lawyer’s seal to the affidavit amounted to a breach of Rule 10(1), (2), (3) of the Rules of Professional Conduct.

Okwudiri added that the affidavit failed to comply with the earlier order of the court which, according to him, directed the prosecution to state the fact that Dasuki had failed to appear in court in respect of the day’s proceedings.

He said in contravention of the said directive, the prosecution had only given an account of the alleged instances of alleged previous refusal of the defendant to come to court but not for Monday’s proceedings.

But dismissing the grounds of objection, Justice Mohammed noted that the affidavit was filed in accordance with the court’s earlier directive.

He said the affidavit did not breach the Rules of Professional Conduct for Legal Practitioners as alleged by the defence counsel, as the lawyer who deposed to it did so in her capacity as a witness and not as a lawyer.

Dasuki had in his letter urged the court to stop his trial on the grounds of the Federal Government’s continued refusal to comply with the series of court orders granting him bail.

He cited five court orders, including one by the Court of Justice of the Economic Community of West African States that ordered his release but continued to be violated by the Federal Government.

His letter dated November 12, 2018 was addressed to the Registrar of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

The letter personally signed by Dasuki, was titled, ‘Unabated persecution of Col. Mohammed Sambo ( retd.) by the Federal Government of Nigeria’.

He stated in the letter, “At this point, I strongly believe that there must be an end to this hypocrisy and lopsided/partisan rule of law.

“Since the Federal Government has resolved not to comply with judicial orders directing my release, it is better for the court to also absolve me of the need to submit myself for further prosecution.

“Justice should be evenly dispensed, as opposed to same, being in favour of the Federal Government of Nigeria.”

Dasuki is currently being prosecuted on three sets of charges with two of the sets relating to his alleged diversion of funds meant for the purchase of arms, which is pending before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Maitama, Abuja, and the other set bordering on illegal possession of firearms and money laundering pending before the Federal High Court in Abuja.

He narrated in his letter how he had at different times been granted bail by the courts in respect of the three sets of charges but the Federal Government refused to comply with the orders.

He recalled that he was re-arrested at Kuje Prison in Abuja on December 29, 2015 shortly after he was released on meeting the terms and conditions of the bail granted him in respect of the three sets of charges instituted against him before different judges.

Randy OAU lecturer, Akindele, arraigned, remanded in prison


A Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo on Monday remanded in prison custody Prof. Richard Akindele, a former lecturer with the Obafemi Awolowo University. He was accused by one of her former students, Monica Osagie, of demanding s.e.x to upgrade her score from fail to pass.

Akindele was arraigned by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission before Justice Maureen Onyetenu on four counts, bordering on alteration of age and demand for sex to pass his student.

Dressed in white, Akindele pleaded not guilty to the four counts pressed against him.

The charges read, “That on the 16th day of September, 2017 or thereabouts, you corruptly asked for sexual benefits for yourself from one Monica Osagie for a favour that would be thereafter shown to her by upgrading her academic record from fail to pass, thereby committing an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 8(1)(a) and 2 of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission Act 2000.



“That you solicited for sexual benefits from the victim on the 16th of September, 2017 or thereabouts for a favour to be given to you, the act contrary to and punishable under Section 18 (b) of the ICPC Act.

“That you deliberately concealed evidence, with the intent to remove parts of the conversation between you and the victim, contrary to Section 15 (1) and (2) of the ICPC Act.

“That you falsified your age by saying under interrogation that you were born on April 19, 1961 while in your personal file retrieved from OAU, you claimed you were born on April 19, 1959, an act contrary to and punishable under Section 25 of the ICPC Act, 2000.”

A Senior Legal Officer with the ICPC, Kehinde Adetoye, told the court the prosecution was ready for the trial of the matter.

Defence counsel, Francis Omotoso, who appeared with two other lawyers, however, observed that the name of the counsel that signed the charge sheet was not marked. He said three names were listed but the one that signed the charge sheet among the three was not marked.

Responding to the observation, Adetoye explained that Ebenezer Adenekan, the lead counsel for the ICPC, signed for other counsels involved in the matter.

Asked by the court if he was ready for definite hearing of the matter, the defence counsel, after initially declaring readiness for hearing, pleaded for more time to study the charge sheet.

He said the prosecution only served him 30 minutes before the court sitting commenced.

The defence counsel made oral application for bail for the defendant but Justice Onyetenu insisted on a formal application.

She subsequently adjourned the matter till Tuesday, November 27, 2018 for definite hearing and remanded Akindele in the prison custody.

Kizz Daniel refunds performance fee to Babcock students



Singer Kizz Daniel (real name is Daniel Anidugbe) on Monday refunded the sum of N3m, which was allegedly paid to him by the organisers of the Freshers’ Fair at Babcock University, Illishan-Remo, Ogun State, to perform at the event.

A report posted on Instagram earlier on Monday claimed that the popular artiste had incurred the wrath of some students of the university, who held him hostage on Sunday night for failing to perform.

The report also alleged that the students were angry because Kizz Daniel kept them waiting for seven hours and when he eventually arrived, he refused to perform on the pretext that the fee was small.

The students, it added, then surrounded the vehicle that brought him to the venue of the show and demanded a refund of their money.



A video showing the aggrieved students surrounding the singer’s car and calling him names was also posted on the social media platform.

A few hours later, the Babcock University Students Association, in an official statement, announced that the artiste had refunded the money paid to him.

The association said that Kizz Daniel could not perform at the show because he arrived late from a trip to Dubai.
