A situation happened between two best friends I thought I should share. For the sake of this post I’ll call friend A, Rihanna and friend B, Beyonce. Okay now, here goes:
Rihanna and Beyonce have been best friends for a long time. They have been there for each other through thick and thin. There was a time when Beyonce was critically sick. Rihanna practically became her mother in order to take good care of her. She would bathe, cook and feed her everyday till she got better. Till her dying day, Beyonce will never forget that act of kindness.
Rihanna has a boyfriend with whom she is deeply in love with. Beyonce had not met him yet but she heard so many things about him from Rihanna. Beyonce and Chris later became friends via social network, talking about facebook, etc (well, you know them all). Na hia wey story start.
Beyonce and Chris got chatting to the point that they chatted dirty one day, well, in their minds it was “clean dirty talk” or at least, in Beyonce’s mind (U grab?). Somehow, somehow, Rihanna got to know about it and Gan-Gan! A quarrel, No! Actually, some quarrels ensured. Rihanna wasn’t comfortable about this and spoke to Chris but he thought it was no big deal. This put a strain on the relationship between the three of them.
Guys, what do y’all think? Was Rihanna overreacting? Was Beyonce deliberately trying to hurt Rihanna? Did Chris really mean the things he said to Beyonce?
For the sake of their relationship, I hope there will be an intervention (probably a divine one) in the matter soonest cos they were all happy and close before the misunderstanding. I’m a sucker for peace, hence the post.
So it’s no longer news that Gov. Gabriel Torwua Suswam of Benue State won at the election appeal tribunal at the Supreme Court Abuja. The very moment it happened, radio stations all over Benue state were agog with the news of his victory.
This has being a long drawn battle between the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and All Nigeria’s People’s Party (ANPP) since the announcement of the results of the Governorship election in 2011. Clearly, this did not go down well with them. Let me take a minute here and bring you up to speed.
Prof. Steve Torkuma Ugbah of ACN and Prof. Daniel Saror of ANPP both dragged Gov. Suswam of PDP to court over the allegation that the election was not free and fair and that it should have been in their favour. The case went from one lower court to the next higher court, probably delayed as it went. By the time it got to the Supreme Court for hearing, the 180days time frame (according to the 2011 amended constitution of Nigeria) was over and the court had no choice but to rule in favor of the PDP.

So a lot of people began to ask, was the justice system actually fair. A lot of controversies surrounded the Apex court 8th of June ruling in Abuja, but hey, the PDP got their deserved victory right?
I can’t help but notice how very confident the PDP were before the ruling. Radio jingles, billboards and banners across the state had inscriptions to show their confidence in their preempted victory.
Anyway, there was a lavish celebration for the PDP back home in Benue state, as politicians gathered in their numbers at the Ibrahim Babangida Square (IBB Square) to celebrate from 10:00am to 4:00pm.
This is wishing you, Rt. Hon. Dr. Gov. Gabriel Torwua Suswam a victorious celebration! Benue sons and daughters are counting on you Sir, to deliver your promise to move the state forward.
