Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has issued a statement distancing himself from the arrest of embattled Senator-elect Buruji Kashamu today. He said he had no part in pressuring the Nigerian government and the Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) to arrest Kashamu as is being speculated.

In the statement released through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said: 
"The comment must have been generated by desperate political spin doctors to link him with what he knew nothing about. For all intent and purposes, the issue relating to Prince Buruji Kashamu is not political and I as a governor does not have anything to do with it."

In case you missed it! Baruji Kashamu threatened suicide today if NDLEA forcefully broke into his home

So, would it be fair to say, one needs to grab a popcorn and watch how all this unfolds? Like seriously? Suicide??? Well this is according to:
SaharaReporters has learned that Senator-elect Buruji Kashamu has barricaded himself in the master bedroom of his Ogun State residence, as Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency agents surround his home. Mr. Kashamu spoke briefly with a SaharaReporters correspondent and said that he would kill himself if anyone entered his home. The stand-off has been ongoing for several hours and Mr. Kashamu has not returned our calls as of recent minutes." Find more tweets inside...

Music/Flute tips with Ebele The Flutist Pt 3

Hello Fans, its another beautiful Saturday to say "Thank You Jesus". Sure you all are doing good? Today we'll be taking the last part of the tittle we've been discussing for the past two weeks; "GENERAL TIPS FOR FLUTIST AND MUSICIANS"

‪#‎Tip11‬. ATTITUDE AND DRIVE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN TALENT!

I have had many students who were extremely gifted; yet never developed potential because of a lack of drive and a dynamic attitude. In the beginning, even if you have to fake the great attitude, do it - and before long it will become a natural part of you're being. Hard work is important here. If you don't work on your talent, its mere!

‪#‎Tip12‬. EVERYONE COMES FROM PODUNK!

DON'T ever think that you are somewhat underprivileged because you haven't had the perfect background of schools and teachers. Even those who have had the BEST of everything have felt that they missed out on that one instructor who could have made the difference in their future. The ratio of career-fulfilled folks to their unfulfilled counterparts (from "big-time" cities and schools) is surprisingly in favor of those of us who didn't have the "perfect" education and background. Small towns breed giants and leaders! Continue...

Uhh! Governor Adams Oshiomole's mother actually advised him not to marry a Nigerian woman

It has been revealed that Governor Adams Oshiomole's mother, Hajia Aishetu Oshiomhole actually advised her son not to marry a Nigerian woman. Hajia Oshiomole said she advised him to look outside Nigeria for a re-marriage in order to avoid conflicts in his family, adding that she is happy he heeded her advise by marrying Lara Fortes from Ethiopia.
"I supported him to marry a foreigner so that the relationship between my son and his children will remain cordial. Our Nigerian women will go and destroy the family just because they want property. That was the main reason I supported him to marry a foreigner when he told me about it. So I am happy about it. Besides, the new wife is a very good woman" Continue to read the rest of what she said...
