Triumphant Super Eagles arrive home to heroes welcome

Nigeria’s Super Eagles arrived back home here on Tuesday, after winning the country’s first Africa Cup of Nations trophy in nearly two decades and were welcomed by adoring crowds ahead of meeting the president.

The newly crowned African champions Nigerian Super Eagles arrives in Abuja to a warm reception by fans and government officials after defeating Burkina Faso to win the 2013 African Cup of Nations in South Africa.

They were also due to attend a reception on Tuesday, to be hosted by President Goodluck Jonathan.
Along the road from the airport toward the city, school children dressed in their uniforms waited for the team convoy and waved Nigerian flags.
The Nations Cup victory in South Africa has thrilled Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation but where the team has in recent years failed to play up to its potential.
A 1-0 win over Burkina Faso, thanks to a winner from Sunday Mba, gave the football mad nation its first African championship since 1994.
Celebrations however were initially tainted by the announcement that coach Stephen Keshi was resigning before the Nigerian Football Federation released a statement said to be signed by Keshi, that he was changing his mind after the sports minister intervened.
Keshi is one of only two men to win the African Cup of Nations as both a player and a coach.

husband and wife bag phd in unilag

A married couple, Olusegun Samuel and his wife, Temitope Samuel stole the show at the 50th Convocation Ceremony of the University of Lagos where they made history by becoming the first couple to bag doctorate degrees on the same day at the institution.

While Samuel did his PhD work on Marine Ecology, with a focus on Ecotoxicology- the study of how poison and chemicals affect the ecosystem, his wife focused on Dermatophyte, a group of fungi that causes skin diseases.

Samuel who joined UNILAG as a lecturer in the Faculty of Science in 2007 met Temitope at the same institution and they got married in May 2010. Temitope on the other hand, obtained her first and second degrees at UNILAG. They are blessed with a child but decided not to have another until they complete their PhD programmes, Temitope told Punch.

“We decided that we were not going to mix pleasure with business. The two don’t go together. Why should we have another baby so soon? When we got married on May 1, 2010, we both agreed on what would happen before we started our PhD programme. But now, the programme is over, we can return to that,” she said.

They said it took them a lot of hard work, sleepless nights, and huge financial resources to complete the programme.

“It took a lot of sacrifice. But since we were both involved, we were able to manage our time. Whenever I was not at home, my wife would be there. Again, at times, we worked so late on the campus that we did not get home until 11.00pm,” Samuel told Punch.

He added that he is proud of his wife’s achievement and doesn’t feel threatened by it. “It is what we both agreed to do. I don’t feel threatened that my wife has attained the same academic feat with me. It is for the benefit of the family.”

They don’t intend to stop at a PhD but plan to pursue their post-doctoral works.

“Definitely, getting a PhD is not the end. The next thing is to pursue post-doctoral works outside the country, because there is no facilities for such in Nigeria. Then, there is the need to get our findings published in a reputable journal. For some, it costs about $500 to get published. Some may say they want to publish it free, but it may take more than two years to get published. For two years, they may tell you that they are still studying your findings,” Samuel said.

Their achievement is indeed admirable and we wish them the very best.

Man jailed for stabbing 16-year-old boy

Magistrates’ Court in Abeokuta on Tuesday sentenced a 20-year-old man, Bidemi Jayeola, to one year imprisonment for stabbing a 16-year-old boy.
The Magistrate, Mr Matins Akinyemi, sentenced Jayeola after he pleaded guilty to the charge of assault filed against him.
Akinyemi, who did not give the convict an option of fine, said the sentence was with hard labour.
The magistrate said that the offence was classified as a violent crime.
He said that Jayeola inflicted “serious bodily injury” on another person, therefore, he had to go to jail and think about his actions.
The Police Prosecutor, Mr Sunday Eigbejiale, told the court that the offence was committed on Dec. 24, 2012, at about 8 p.m. at Olorunda village in Abeokuta.
He said that the convict stabbed one Yusuf Ojubanire on his neck, hand and ribs while on his way to church.
“The young boy and his brothers were on their way to church, when Jayeola accosted them and threatened to collect their belongings.
“When the boy refused to give him, Jayeola stabbed him on the neck, hand and ribs, he ran away leaving the poor boy in a pool of blood.
“The boy was rushed to Ayetoro General Hospital by a passersby.
Luckily, he survived the injuries,” he said.
The prosecutor also said that upon investigation, the convict was arrested at an uncompleted building where a cutlass and some charms, numbering 28 were found on him.
Eigbejiale argued that the offence contravened Section 355 of the Criminal Code Law of Ogun, 2006.
Earlier, the convict had pleaded for leniency.

Should I Cheat On Him?

Dear Readers,

I would prefer to go as Anonymous. I have been married for one an a half years now. I am a 28 year old woman. My husband and I decided not to have kids until after two years of marriage, to enable us enjoy the home before the kids come. Sometime last month, My husband was taking a shower after work.

His phone rang and I decided to take the call for him. That is not wrong because we take each other's calls – I am his wife now! My husband stored this number as Seyi. I quickly took the call and what I heard really shocked me: Baby, I have been trying to call you, why didn't you pick my calls on time? Are you home yet? I was stunned, just a year and a half into marriage and my hubby was already cheating on me? I answered the lady and told her I was Tunde's wife and she quickly dropped the call. When he came out of the bathroom, I confronted him and he didn't deny.

He asked me to forgive him, that it was the devil's handwork, that it would not repeat itself again – but it did. I feel betrayed and cheated. Why did he cheat on me? What will happen when we start having kids? Should I cheat on him, so i don't feel hurt when he does the same?

Please I need your honest opinions.

Prostitutes offer free services in Benin after Super Eagles won AFCON 2013

Commercial sex workers in Benin City on Sunday night offered free services to any man that came their way as part celebrations marking Super Eagles’ victory at the just concluded African Nations Cup in South Africa.

Many of the sex workers in Ugbague, Dawson road near Felona Hotel and Wire Road told our correspondent that the Eagles victory had given them “happiness.”

In the hotel shout of “up Super Eagles” rented the air.

“See Mr. Journalists, if you want sex, I will give you for free because our guys in Super Eagles today are my men. If Victor Moses, Sunday Mba and others are here today, I will have offered them free service.

“Oga, reporter, am an Igbo woman, the guy that scored the goal for Nigeria is my brother, if see him, I will service him specially, or can you link me up.

“Since the Super Eagles players are not here for us to be offered free services, any of our customers that come will benefit from these services.”

Also on Sunday, two people were reportedly killed by vehicle while celebrating Nigeria’s triumph in the tournament.

The victims were killed opposite a brothel in the Edo State capital by an Opel Omega, said to be on high speed.

The men, according to one of their friend, who simply identified himself as Samson, said that they all left the hotel to cross to the other side of the road when the vehicle ran over the victims, killing them on the spot.

Meanwhile, Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has congratulated the Super Eagles on their victory at the tournament.

In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Peter Okhiria, Oshiomhole said “the victory of the Eagles is a reflection of the can-do spirit which makes Nigerians stand out anywhere in the World

9 stages of love all couples go through

Relationships are unique.
And one experience of love is never ever the same.
You may have been in several relationships in your life, and all of them may have been very different from the earlier one.
But there are a few traits about every single relationship that binds all relationships along a similar path.
Relationship stages in your love life
Relationships, just like life, have their own stages. It starts off with infatuation and goes through several stages along the way.
And these stages are like tests that check your compatibility with each other.
Go wrong anywhere along the way, and your relationship will take the brunt of the fall.
Have you ever met a couple who seemed like they were going to stay together forever, but ended up breaking up a few years later?
Perhaps, in all probability, they went wrong in one of these stages of the relationship.
The 9 relationship stages that all couples experience
Are you in a new relationship? Or are you in a seasoned relationship with someone you’ve been with for several years?
It doesn’t matter how long your relationship has lasted, because all the relationships will fit snugly in one of these relationship stages.
Find your own relationship stage here, and it’ll definitely help you understand your own love life better.
Stage #1 The infatuation stage. This is the first stage in every relationship. It almost always starts with an intense attraction and an uncontrollable urge to be with each other. Both of you may be intensely sexually attracted to each other, or both of you may just love the cuddles and each other’s company. In this stage, both of you overlook any flaws of each other and only focus on the good sides.
Stage #2 The understanding stage. In this stage, both of you start getting to know each other better. You have long conversations with your partner that stretches late into the night, and everything about your partner interests and fascinates you. You talk about each other’s families, exes, likes and dislikes and other innocent secrets, and life seems so beautiful and romantic.
Stage #3 The stage of disturbances. This stage usually forces its way into a happy romance after a few months of blissful courting. Do you remember the first fight or angry disagreement you and your partner had? For the first time ever in the relationship, both of you confront each other over a conflict, even though it’s sorted out quickly.
Stage #4 The opinion maker. In this stage, both of you create opinions about each other. As the months pass by, both of you know what to expect from each other, and you make an assumption about your partner’s commitment towards the relationship.
When these opinions and expectations about your partner differ now and then in real life, it can either leave you ecstatic or depressed.
You don’t expect your man to buy you flowers, but he does. You feel ecstatic. At the same time, you expect him to pick you up from the airport on time. But he arrives an hour later because he forgot all about picking you up. It depresses you.
Stage #5 The moulding stage. You have your own expectations from an ideal partner. And in this stage, both of you try hard to mould each other to fit your own wants in a perfect partner. This stage is a lot about give and take, and both partners constantly try to subtly convince each other to change their behavior towards the relationship. This is a power struggle, and one that can end the relationship if both partners are domineering.
Stage #6 The happy stage. If the relationship survives past the moulding stage, both of you may have changed equally for each other and understood each other’s expectations. In this stage, the relationship cruises along perfectly and both of you may be blissfully happy with each other.
Almost always, this is the stage when both of you feel like a perfect match. You may even decide to get engaged or get married. This happy stage is also the stage of attachment when both of you truly feel connected to each other and love each other intensely.
Stage #7 The stage of doubts. It’s been several years since both of you have been in a relationship with each other. And somewhere along the way, doubts start to creep in. The intensity of the doubts depend on how happy both of you are in the relationship.
You start to think of your past relationships, your exes, and other prospective partners. You tie your happiness in life with your relationship. If you’re unhappy, you blame it on the relationship.
In this stage, you start comparing your relationship with other couples and other relationships. Would your relationship survive this stage? It definitely could, as long as your relationship isn’t monotonous and repetitive.
Stage #8 The sexual exploration or bust stage. This is the stage when your sex life starts to play a pivotal role. Both your sex drives may change or one of you may get disinterested in sex.
In this stage, you either give up on passionate sex or constantly look for ways to make sex more exciting. If sexual interests start differing here, one of you may end up having an affair. But on the other hand, if you find creative ways to make sex more exciting, your relationship could get better and bring both of you a lot closer.
Stage #9 The stage of complete trust. This is the happy stage when both of you love each other and trust each other completely. But at the same time, the unbreakable trust in each other could also turn into taking each other for granted.
In this stage, both of you know the direction of the relationship and both of you are completely happy with each other and find it easy to predict each other’s behavior and decisions. But with stability in love comes the urge to take each other for granted.
As pleasant as this final stage of love may be, it’s still no excuse to take each other lightly or stop appreciating each other, because love is an intense emotion that can be rekindled by anyone else at any time if you fail to express your romance to your lover.
If you’re in a relationship for a while, you may have experienced all or most of these relationship stages. And if you’re still in a young love, don’t let the dark side of these relationship stages scare you.
Instead, look at these 9 relationship stages as stepping stones into a better future, one that’s filled with a lot of love and happiness, just as long as both of you remember to keep love alive all the time.

Bizzare! Chinese Gay Couple Weds

 An elderly gay couple recently [Jan. 31] broke taboos in China by getting “married” in a live webcast — with the “bride” in a white dress and veil. One of the men wore a traditional bridal gown and headdress when he exchanged vows with his partner in a ceremony broadcast on China’s equivalent of Twitter. The happy couple — a teacher and a bottled water delivery man, from Pinggu district — smiled for photos, with the groom looking dapper in a dinner suit while the bride proudly held up her bouquet of red roses.
The ceremony was attended by friends and family who watched as the pair — dubbed Big Treasure and Little Treasure — downed a celebratory spirit. But reports said the festivities became too much for one of the men’s sons who eventually threw all the guests out.
