Check out Lamar Odom Emotional Tribute To Late NBA Legend Kobe Bryant

Former NBA star, Lamar Odom has penned down an emotional post to Kobe Bryant who died in a helicopter crash on Sunday January 26 alongside his daughter, Gianna and 7 others.

Sharing a photo with the late Basketball legend as teammates at Lakers, Lamar disclosed that Kobe taught him so many things which were necessary in life on and off the basketball court. He added that their relationship was like that of a teacher and a brother. Odom also compared Bryant’s death to the loss of his 6½-month-old son in 2009.

According to Lamar, if God had come to him when he was in coma and said he would take him and spare Kobe Bryant, he would have been okay with that.

He wrote on Instagram;

These picture are just the tip of the iceberg of our relationship. He taught me so many things in life that were necessary on and off the court. On the court he taught me how to carve out defenses and how to take my time. How to make winning my ultimate goal. Off the court he taught me to sign my own checks lol.

Of course anyone who knows my story knows I’ve suffered a lot of loss but the only loss I can compare this to is when I lost my son. Even though our relationship wasn’t father/son, it was more like him being a teacher and me being his brother. I’m glad I got to be the ying to your yang as far as the locker room was concerned. It was my pleasure. I couldn’t even catch my breath today when I heard this news. I just knew if he was in a helicopter crash he would have been the one

Stop Gloating, Atiku Will Soon Reclaim His Mandate - PDP Tells President Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked President Buhari to stop gloating and showboating on Nigerians with what they described as "the stolen 2019 Presidential mandate".

According to PDP,  the 'people's candidate', Atiku Abubakar would soon retrieve the presidential mandate from Buhari at the tribunal. The party said this in a statement released by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan. Read below

The party further describes President Buhari’s renewed attack and blame game on PDP administrations as a lame attempt to divert public attention from the overwhelming evidence that he rigged the elections, as well as from the plots by his Presidency to obstruct the clear winner, Atiku Abubakar, from going to the tribunal to reclaim the mandate freely given to him by Nigerians.

It indeed speaks volumes that President Buhari, in his claimed integrity and anti-corruption stance, is grandstanding over the violent rigging of the elections and his attempt to foist himself into a second term in office on the pedestal of stolen votes.

President Buhari and his All Progressives Congress (APC) should know that the PDP and Nigerians are focused and will not be distracted by any sort of blackmail in the pursuit of the mandate and we are confident that our justices will never allow an illegitimate government to sit over the affairs of our dear nation.

Moreover, if anybody has a question to answer on the administration of the nation’s resources, it is President Buhari, who has not been able to offer any explanation on the looting of over N14 trillion from revenue generating agencies in a space of three years under his direct supervision.

We ask; was it the PDP that siphoned over N9 trillion, through underhand contracts, as detailed in the leaked NNPC memo, in the same sector President Buhari directly supervises as Minister of Petroleum Resources?

Was it the PDP that stole the over N1.1 trillion worth of crude illegally lifted and diverted with 18 unregistered companies in 2017; the over N1.4 trillion in fraudulent oil subsidy regime and many more scams, including funds meant for the welfare of victims of insurgency in the North East under the Buhari administration?

Whereas the PDP administrations created wealth and applied our national resources on massive infrastructural development in all critical sectors; paid off our huge foreign and domestic debts and grew our economy to be one of fastest growing in the world, President Buhari, within a space of three years ran our economy into recession and cannot point to any development project his administration initiated and completed despite the huge opportunities at his disposal.

President Buhari must note that Nigerians are no longer interested in his incompetence and blame game and this is the very reason they voted massively against him on February 23. He should therefore end his diversionary tactics and get ready to meet the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in court.

The Court Case Against My Re-Election Is Not Surprising - President Buhari

President Buhari has said that the legal challenge against his re-election is not surprising. 

The President made the statement while addressing newsmen shortly after he and his wife cast their vote in Daura, Katsina state, earlier today. INEC had on Wednesday, February 27 declared Buhari winner of the 2019 presidential election. 

Buhari won the elections in 19 states, polling a total of 15,191,847 votes, he defeated 72 other candidates including his closest opponent, Atiku Abubakar, who polled a total of  11, 255,978 votes and won in 17 states and the FCT.

In reaction to the defeat, Atiku put together a legal team to challenge the verdict. The PDP presidential candidate sought redress at a tribunal, demanding that materials used for the Feb. 23 presidential election be inspected by his legal team

However, President Buhari in his reaction to Atiku and the PDP’s move told newsmen on Saturday that he expected the challenge beforehand. Regarding fears of a possible eruption of violence during the governorship elections, President Buhari said he is leaving the situation to the law enforcement agencies. 

He said the police have identified all flashpoints and have made arrangements to counter them.

Shehu Sani Backs Buhari’s Call For PDP Members To Explain How They Squandered $592bn During Their Administration

Senator Shehu Sani, says he supports President Buhari's decision to question members of the main opposition party PDP, over the $592 billion expended on projects when the party was in power for 16 years.

Recall that President Buhari, yesterday March 7th, said Nigerians need an eplanation from the opposition party on how it expended such amount of money.
“PDP has not successfully explained to the country what they did with the money. They said they spent $16 billion on power, but where is the power? The irresponsible expenditure of that period has not been explained, and Nigerians deserve an answer on that terrible mismanagement of the country.”the president said when he played host to Labour leaders
Writing via his Twitter handle, Sani said everyone that was once in the PDP should go and prepare for a presentation before President Buhari on how they expended the $592 billion.
“I support the President’s demand that the PDP should explain how they squandered $592 Billion. I advise the opposition party to recall all its past and present members (1999 to 2015),to prepare and present to Mr President and the nation a full report of such a monumental waste.” he wrote

You're 82, Take Some Rest And Stop Attacking Buhari - Alake Of Egbaland Advises Obasanjo

The Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Aremu Gbadebo, on Tuesday, advised former President Olusegun Obasanjo to desist from his ceaseless attacks on President Muhammadu Buhari.

The monarch gave the advice in his goodwill message to mark the 82nd birthday anniversary of Obasanjo at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta.

Gbadebo, who noted that Obasanjo had been ‘‘a warrior’’ all his life, urged him to rest, fight less and rather take a position of a consultant at his new age. ‘‘At 82 years, I think you should keep your sword more rather than use it always,’’ he said.

Gbadebo, who served as a military officer during the military administration of Muhammadu Buhari between 1984 and 1985, said he had always told Obasanjo to leave his boss (Buhari) alone.

Obasanjo, who responded to goodwill messages from friends, family members and well-wishers at the programme, responded by saying that the issues between him and Buhari were not personal.

According to the elder statesman, governance is not a family affair, adding that democracy involves criticisms and consideration of all sides to an issue.

‘‘There is nothing personal between President Buhari and I. ‘‘In a democracy, you can criticise a policy, a government or a leader because democracy is not a family affair. ‘

If it is my brother that is occupying the leadership role and he is not doing what I believe he should do, he must be criticised and that is what democracy is all about. I have been in that position longer than any Nigerian will ever be there.

‘So if I say anybody in government in Nigeria is not doing well, let that government prove that it is doing well,’’ he said
