Yesterday I told you about some on Twitter Nigeria being up in arms after the First Daughters – Zahra and Halima Buhari were spotted with their mother – Aisha, at the ongoing UN General Assembly in New York.

READ: Aisha Buhari Dragged For Flying To New York With Personal Makeup Artiste & Daughters For UNGA

Last night after facing criticism from Twitter NG, the President’s SSA on Media & Publicity, Shehu Garba clarified that the government did not pay for their tickets, he said their flights were paid for by the Buhari family.

That explanation flew right over their heads with many even asking for proof because they just did not believe the words coming from the presidential spokesman.

Former US Secretary of State Colin Powell not only has the tea on the Clintons and Donald Trump but he’s also not afraid to spill!

In newly leaked e-mails obtained from private accounts belonging to former Sec. of State, he reveals his true feelings about both the Democratic & Republican presidential Clinton, Trump. Until now many thought Powell and the Clintons were good friends, but thanks to one of the jaw dropping emails in particular where he called Hillary “greedy”and said he would rather not vote for her, he pretty much has everyone questioning their friendship.

Blame Buhari, Recession? Twitter Nigeria Reacts To Arik Air’s Suspension & Resumption of Operations

Yesterday Nigeria & West Africa’s largest airline fleet – Arik Air suspended operations due to its inability to immediately renew its aircraft insurance. This came just two weeks after Aero Contractors and First Nation suspended flight operations. Apparently the suspension was caused by the recession and the persistent problem currently plaguing most businesses in Nigeria right now, very limited access to dollars to remit payments.

According to Bloomberg Africa, Arik Air had to change insurance providers as initial one couldn’t get forex to remit premiums abroad.

The suspension left thousands of travellers in Nigeria and abroad stranded.

However less than 254 hours after their suspension the carrier resumed flights this morning [Sept. 14]. As expected Twitter Nigeria had a lot to say about the suspension and resumption of operations, with some blaming Buhari for the airline’s woes, while others pondered the dire state of Nigeria’s aviation industry.

Governor of Edo State Adams Oshiomhole might be 64 years old but he can move better than kids half his age!

The Governor showed off his world class dance moves yesterday at the Samuel Igbemudia Stadium venue of the APC Gubernatorial Rally which was also attended by President Buhari.

While his wife kept it cute, gently swaying in her APC branded iro & buba, Oshiomhole with broom in hand, gave them some serious konko below moves that would make even the most hardcore dabbers proud.

PMB didn’t join in the dancing, he just low key watched Gov. Oshiomhole with amusement.

I got my entire life and more when Oshiomhole and Governor of Kaduna State Nasir El Rufai danced it off, both seeing who could go down low the fastest without breaking a knee.
