Former White House photographer gives the backstory to Barack Obama's controversial tan suit












In 2014, Barack Obama wore a tan suit and the media had a meltdown.

The ex president stepped out in a tan suit to the Oval Office, the media made a big deal out of it.







It was so bad that the tan suit scandal was discussed on TV and across various social media platforms. Some even called for him to be impeached.

Former White House photographer, Pete Souza has now given the backstory to the tan suit and how the president told his staff "Don't tell me what to wear" when they tried to discourage him from wearing the suit.

Pete wrote:




At 7:30AM, apparently while he was on the treadmill in the private residence, President Obama sent a message to Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest via his secure Blackberry warning him that he planned to wear a tan suit to the Oval Office that day.[1]?

Earnest replied five minutes later at 7:35AM: “Talked to {White House Press Secretary Jay} Carney and we both agree this will be a big mistake. You are scheduled to make an appearance in the briefing room. Please ask XXXXXXXX to prepare a gray suit instead.”[2]?
? ?

Obama replied instantly, also at 7:35AM: “Don’t tell me what to wear.”[3]?
? ?
?
Despite the warning from Earnest and Carney, Obama did in fact wear the tan suit during his appearance in the White House briefing room, which created the biggest controversy of his administration.?

?
At approximately 4PM, Carney called an internal staff meeting with senior officials including Valerie Jarrett and Denis McDonough to discuss with the President how to handle the controversy.[4] McDonough’s notes from that day include the words, “We’re screwed; this is the end of his presidency.”[5]?



I’m Nigerian by birth - Atiku replies APC









Former Vice President and PDP Presidential candidate in the February 23rd presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, has denied claims made by the APC that he is not a citizen of Nigeria.

In a petition filed at the presidetial election tribunal, the APC had alleged that Atiku is not a Nigerian by birth. In their petition, the APC stated that Atiku was born in Cameroon and so is a Cameroonian by birth and as such, is not eligible to run for president.

Responding to APC's claim, Atiku in statement himself and his party jointly filed before the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal, denied the claim. The former Vice President said he was born on November 25, 1946, in Jada, Adamawa State, therefore he was a Nigerian.

He said while his father, Garba Atiku Abdulkadir, hailed from Wumo in the present-day Sokoto State, his mother, Aisha Kande, hailed from Dutse, now Jigawa State. The response in part reads


“Contrary to the allegations contained in paragraphs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the 3rd respondent’s (APC’s) reply, the petitioners state that the 1st petitioner (Atiku) is a citizen of Nigeria by birth and thus qualified to vote and be voted for and returned in the election to the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, held on Saturday February 23, 2019 going by the relevant provisions of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

“The 1st petitioner was born on November 25, 1946, in Jada, Adamawa State, by Nigerian parents and he is, therefore, a citizen of Nigeria by birth. The 1st petitioner’s father, Garba Atiku Abdulkadir, was a Nigerian by birth who hailed from Wumo in the present-day Sokoto State, while the mother, Aisha Kande, was also a Nigerian who hailed from Dutse in the present-day Jigawa State.

“The parents of the 1st Petitioner are both Fulani, a community/tribe indigenous to Nigeria.

“The birth of the 1st petitioner in Jada, in the present-day Adamawa State of Nigeria, was occasioned by the movement of his paternal grandfather called Atiku, who was an itinerant trader, from Wumo in the present-day Sokoto State to Jada in company with his friend, Ardo Usman. That in Jada, Atiku, the grandfather of the 1st petitioner, gave birth to Garba who in tum gave birth to the 1st petitioner and named him after his father, Atiku.

“The 1st petitioner’s mother, Aisha Kande, was the grand-daughter of Inuwa Dutse who came to Jada as an itinerant trader too from Dutse in the present-day Jigawa State. All averments concerning Germany, British Cameroons, League of Nations and Plebiscite are false and misleading in relation to the 1st petitioner and therefore completely irrelevant more so that the 1st petitioner is a Nigerian by birth within the contemplation of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended).

“The averments in the aforesaid paragraphs are indeed fabricated, contrived, made in bad faith and designed to embarrass the 1st petitioner'' he said

Man pretending to be an officer tried to pull over a real detective and got arrested












When a South Florida undercover detective almost got pulled over last week, it came as a surprise that the officer attempting to conduct the traffic stop wasn't even a real one.



Despite having red and blue lights on the grill of his 2007 white Chevrolet Trailblazer, a law enforcement light bar on top of the vehicle and and a realistic-looking airsoft pistol under the front passenger seat, Matthew Joseph Erris, 26, of Dade City, was just pretending to be deputy, according to a press release from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.



What Erris didn't know was that the driver of the car he tried to pull over was a real undercover detective.



The detective called 911 while keeping Erris' "patrol car" in sight, the release said. A short time later, Erris was pulled over by a real deputy and had his vehicle searched, where the fake gun and lights were found.





Erris was subsequently arrested for allegedly impersonating a law enforcement officer.

MJ VS Beyonce trends as Nigerians argue about who is a better performer between Michael Jackson and Beyonce (screenshots)












A heated debate has ensued on Twitter regarding who is a better performer between Michael Jackson and Beyonce.

No doubt, Michael Jackson and Beyonce are two musicians who have made great impact with their talent, but Twitter users believe they are not on the same level and have resorted to comparing MJ vs Beyonce.



This comparison comes after the release of Beyonce's Homecoming documentary which showed the efforts Bey put into making her Coachella performance exceptional. She had just given birth to twins via an emergency C-Section after suffering pre-eclampsia during pregnancy. Yet, she refused to stay home to recuperate and immediately went into beast mode, exercising and dieting just to get back into shape.



Following the release of the documentary, Some Twitter users began to refer to her as the greatest of all time and no one, not even Michael Jackson, can compare. But some tweeps felt there was no basis for the comparison as both artists were from different eras. Some said Michael was able to make so much impact globally, even without the internet, whereas the internet helped give Beyonce reach.



Some compared them based on their stage performances and the impact they had on the crowd during concerts. They pointed out that people fainted when MJ performed but Bey hasn't been able to achieve that.

So far, web users have been unable to come to an agreement as diehard Beyonce fans insist she's the best of all time, whereas, others say she's good but can't compare with the late MJ.

''New minimum wage will lead to chaos''- APC chieftain, Tony Momoh says









Former Minister of Information and an APC chieftain, Prince Tony Momoh, has warned that the new minimum wage of N30, 000 which was signed into law by President Buhari on Thursday April 18th, may lead to chaos.

According to Momoh who spoke in Abuja during a chat with Journalists as part of activities to mark his 80th birthday and 50th marriage anniversary yesterday April 19th, said the “so called” minimum wage is not a living wage and should not be celebrated. According to Momoh, most state governors who are still owing their staff the N18, 000 minimum wage, will not be able to pay the new wage.


“My prediction is that the N30, 000 minimum wage will cause chaos because many state governments that were paying N7, 500 before N18, 000 was introduced could not pay then. A lot of them are currently finding it difficult to pay N18, 000. They are already saying they can’t pay and this would lead to strikes. When that happens, the nation is in trouble.

“The N30, 000 minimum wage is not a living wage. What is the percentage of the workers in Nigeria that are entitled to the N30, 000 minimum wage? What is the percentage of public servants compared to the percentage of the entire working population in Nigeria?” Momoh said

Eight Nigerians sentenced to death in UAE for robbery (Photo)









The Criminal Court of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates has sentenced eight Nigerians to death for carrying out what it termed as “a string of armed robberies” at money exchanges and cash machines across the emirate in December 2016.


Khaleej Times, a UAE medium, reported on Thursday that the ninth suspect was however sentenced to six months imprisonment for possession of stolen money. He would be deported after serving the jail term.


The report noted that the ninth suspect denied the charge against him and claimed that one of the suspect’s brothers asked him to transfer Dh60,000 to an account in his home country (Nigeria). The court accused the convicted persons of armed robbery, public assault and seizing money by force. Some of the accused were said to have confessed to their crimes while others denied the charges.


The UAE Police said they checked surveillance cameras and found fingerprints to identify the perpetrators, which led to their arrest. One of the defendants was said to have returned part of the stolen money. A total of Dh1.8m cash was reportedly stolen from three locations.


In the ruling, which took place on Wednesday, only eight persons were convicted out of the 20 persons arrested for the crime, which involved attacking security guards in four violent attacks at ATMs and money exchanges across Sharjah in late 2016. According to a report by Gulf News, a daily English Newspaper in Dubai, the verdict was handed down by Judge Majid Al Muhairi of Sharjah Criminal Court.

Meanwhile, Gulf News said a prosecutor pointed out that the judgement could be appealed and that the sentences could be downgraded to life imprisonment.

Photos: 19-year-old student burnt to death two weeks after she filed sexual harassment complaint against her headmaster













Nusrat Jahan Rafi was doused with kerosene and set on fire at her school in Bangladesh. Less than two weeks earlier, she had filed a sexual harassment complaint against her headmaster.

19-year-old Nusrat was from Feni, a small town 100 miles (160km) south of Dhaka and was studying at a madrassa, ( Islamic school)

On 27 March, she said the headmaster called her into his office and repeatedly touched her in an inappropriate manner. Before things could go any further she ran out.

According to BBC, Nusrat went to the police with the help of her family on the day the alleged abuse happened. At the local police station she gave a statement. She should have been provided with a safe environment to recall her traumatic experiences. Instead she was filmed by the officer in charge on his phone as she described the ordeal.

In the video Nusrat is visibly distressed and tries to hide her face with her hands. The policeman is heard calling the complaint "no big deal" and telling her to move her hands from her face. The video was later leaked to local media.







Nusrat Jahan Rafi was from a small town, came from a conservative family, and went to a religious school. For a girl in her position, reporting sexual harassment can come with consequences. Victims often face judgement from their communities, harassment, in person and online, and in some cases violent attacks. Nusrat went on to experience all of these.

On 27 March, after she went to the police, they arrested the headmaster. Things then got worse for Nusrat. A group of people gathered in the streets demanding his release. The protest had been arranged by two male students and local politicians were allegedly in attendance. People began to blame Nusrat. Her family say they started to worry about her safety.

On 6 April, 11 days after the alleged sexual assault, Nusrat went to her school to sit her final exams.

"I tried to take my sister to school and tried to enter the premises, but I was stopped and wasn't allowed to enter," said Nusrat's brother, Mahmudul Hasan Noman.
"If I hadn't been stopped, something like this wouldn't have happened to my sister," he said.

According to a statement given by Nusrat, a fellow female student took her to the roof of the school, saying one of her friends was being beaten up. When Nusrat reached the rooftop four or five people, wearing burqas, surrounded her and allegedly pressured her to withdraw the case against the headmaster. When she refused, they set her on fire.







Police Bureau of Investigation chief Banaj Kumar Majumder said the killers wanted "to make it look like a suicide". Their plan failed when Nusrat was rescued after they fled the scene. She was able to give a statement before she died.

"One of the killers was holding her head down with his hands, so kerosene wasn't poured there and that's why her head wasn't burned," Mr Majumder told BBC Bengali.

But when Nusrat was taken to a local hospital, doctors found burns covering 80% of her body. Unable to treat the burns, they sent her to Dhaka Medical College Hospital.
In the ambulance, fearing she might not survive, she recorded a statement on her brother's mobile phone.

"The teacher touched me, I will fight this crime till my last breath," you can hear her say.







She also identified some of her attackers as students at the madrassa.

News of Nusrat's health dominated Bangladeshi media. On 10 April, she died. Thousands of people turned out for her funeral in Feni.

Police have since arrested 15 people, seven of them allegedly involved in the murder. Among those arrested are the two male students who organised the protest in support of the headmaster. The headmaster himself remains in custody. The policeman who filmed Nusrat's sexual harassment complaint has been removed from his post and transferred to another department.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina met Nusrat's family in Dhaka and promised that every person involved in the killing would be bought to justice. "None of the culprits will be spared from legal action," she said.







Nusrat's death has sparked protests and thousands have used social media to express their anger about both her case and the treatment of sexual assault victims in Bangladesh.

"Many girls don't protest out of fear after such incidents. Burqas, even dresses made of iron cannot stop rapists," said Anowar Sheikh on BBC Bengali's Facebook page.
"I wanted a daughter my whole life, but now I am afraid. Giving birth to a daughter in this country means a life of fear and worry," wrote Lopa Hossain in her Facebook post.

According to women's rights group Bangladesh Mahila Parishad, there were 940 incidents of rape in Bangladesh in 2018. But researchers say the real number is likely to be much higher.

"When a woman tries to get justice for sexual harassment, she has to face a lot of harassment again. The case lingers for years, there is shaming in society, a lack of willingness from police to properly investigate the allegations," said Salma Ali, a human rights lawyer and former director of the Women Lawyers' Association.

"It leads the victim to give up on seeking justice. Ultimately the criminals don't get punished and they do the same crime again. Others don't fear to do the same because of such examples."

Activists are now demanding the order be implemented and enshrined in law to protect students.

"This incident has shaken us, but as we have seen in the past, such incidents get forgotten in time. I don't think there will be a big change after this. We have to see if justice gets done," said Professor Kaberi Gayen of the University of Dhaka.

"Change has to come in, both psychologically and in implementing the rule of law. Awareness about sexual harassment should be raised from childhood in schools," she said.
"They have to learn what is right and wrong when it comes to sexual harassment."

Police rescue young lady from the hands of ritualists in Delta State (Photos)

















Officers of the Delta State police command, on Thursday, rescued a lady from suspected kidnappers/ritualists in Adana.



The lady was said to be returning from Ogbegonogo market when she boarded their tricycle. Two other gang members later joined her from both sides, leaving her in the middle.







Trouble, however, started when the rider refused to stop at the victim’s destination, forcing her to raise an alarm that attracted some policemen who gave them a hot chase and eventually rescued the girl and arrested the suspects.



An eyewitness said one of them in a bid to disappear threw a ring suspected to be magic ring in his mouth and attempted to vanish but the Police diffused the charm. Irate youths who gathered at the scene made efforts to go on jungle justice but the police prevented them.
