[ @janga12: ] A lady by the name Halima Waziri has sent an apology to former president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan for criticizing him while he was in office, only to realize that he was far better than the current leadership of the country.

Her apology reads: Dear former president Goodluck Ebele I Azikiwe Jonathan GCFR, GCON.
My name is Halima waziri I will like to use this medium to officially apologize to you for criticizing and condemning your administration in the year 2015.

Until after you left office that i realized the kind of person exactly you were.
you are indeed a man of integrity not acclaimed integrity,
you are a real Democrat not a dictator.
Looking at what is happening with our Democratic system today I recalled one of your post on your Facebook wall on 8th Jan.2015 which you wrote:
“My dear Facebook friends,
I have said it before and I will continue to say and live by the fact that my ambition, and indeed the ambition of anybody, is not worth the blood of any Nigerian. Therefore, I urge all Nigerians to look forward in hope as we fulfill the dreams of our founding fathers to ‘build a nation where peace and Justice reign.
In that regard, we must make the election of February 14th, 2015, a contest amongst brothers rather than a struggle between foes.
The apology has however sparked a reaction from movie star, Omotola Jalade who was of the opinion that there was nothing to apologize about has the Goodluck administration had its own flaws.
According to Omotola “This in itself is a problem. There is nothing to apologize for. That Administration(Jonathan’s) was wasteful. Although it was a way better time than now, it was not the best for Nigerians anyway. We cannot want a one eyed cause its better than a blind. We must value ourselves to want Full vision.

Good one HALIMA, I will join you to also apologize to him for criticizing your administration. This current one is in hell.

[ @janga12: ] The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, on Friday said many Nigerians would be shocked by the outcome of its probe into examination fraud between 2009-2019.

JAMB Registrar, Prof. Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed that the board has discovered that some prominent Nigerians occupying high positions in the society today did not take its examination themselves.

He said that although the board may not be able to punish these persons because they had already left the system, but it would go ahead to publish their names to shame them.

The JAMB Registrar spoke at the 23rd annual seminar of the Nigerian Academy of Education under the topic, “Admissions into tertiary educational institutions in Nigeria.”

He added, “If I were to be punishing every staff of JAMB that is committing infractions, I will not focus on the assignment.

“I will be going from one disciplinary committee to the other and my attention will be diverted.

“And that is why I go for the shortest route; once you are caught to have committed one infraction, you will not be assigned with examination duties again.

“It is a privilege, which I can withdraw. If you are that bad that I don’t want to see your face around me, I will transfer you to another place.

“If we have to take disciplinary action against all of them; look at it, today we have 100 people not less than 100 in police cells across the country who were caught for examination malpractices.

“I have appointed a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, who is a former Solicitor-General to help me oversee all these so that the suspects can be brought to book.

“And my Director of Legal asked me, what offences should we charge these people for; for multiple registrations? And I said why can’t we go to the Examination Malpractice Act?

“So, my problem has started by having to draft the charges, despite the fact that we have evidences against them. That is the beginning of the problem.

“I will now ask to be paying my staff to travel out of Abuja to be testifying in court as they are adjourning month after month the cases and we will be wasting money and time on transport.

“So even now, what we have seen, I tell people that I am more tolerant of corruption in JAMB than when I was as a vice-chancellor at the University of Ilorin.”

According to the Professor, the board has de-listed no fewer than 76 Computer-Based Test Centres for various infractions in the recently concluded unified tertiary matriculation examination.

[ @lisamelz: ] City FM On-air personality, Benny Ark was sacked today by the management of the radio station just weeks after he sparked a controversy online.





Reports say he was allegedly sacked by the MD of City FM, Mrs Adedoja Allen, over his issues with colleagues.



The OAP was seen weeks ago in a video stating that singer, Chidinma was the reason why Kizz Daniel decided to start his #Fuckyouchallenge simply because they broke up.



However, the information by Benny Ark didn’t sit well with Chidinma’s camp which later forced the OAP to tender an apology.

According to Chidinma’s manager, Rasheed Ogunsanwo:



“When she heard the news, Chidinma was just laughing. Left to her, she would not have said a word or written a letter to the radio station or the OAP. It was her management that decided to take the issue up because it was blatant rubbish. If the story was true, Chidinma would have lost her cool.

“Chidinma is an artiste who doesn’t interfere in public issues; she just focuses on her music. It was annoying when an OAP came out to say what he wasn’t sure of. And he said it with so much confidence; that pissed everyone off.



On Tuesday, we wrote to the management of the radio station. We asked them to tell us where they got the information from. I think he (Benny Ark) has tendered an apology. But despite the apology, we would still look at the situation and decide if we should take the matter up legally. It was obvious the OAP was lying.”

However, this is not the presenter’s first run with stirring controversies.

The popular Abuja-based OAP was tongue-lashed on social media few months ago after he stated that Tiwa Savage only shouts and can’t sing on stage.

However, the OAP reacted to the call out by Tiwa Savage’s fans by stating that his opinion is unbiased regardless of whose ox was gored.





That's rather a wicked act to say the least.

[ @lisamelz: ] Okunola Mariam, popularly know as ‘Mory_Coco, an Instagram comedian who got married to KraksTV boss, Femi Bakre has revealed she would have loved to get married when there was no social media.





In her beautiful post about her wedding to Femi Bakre which she prayed will skip every eye, Mariam stated that would have loved to have her wedding on the days where there was no social media. According to her this is because she is so private, but since they’ve made lifetime friends on Instagram it is only right that their happy moments with them because that’s what friends do.



She wrote;




If I were to chose, I would have loved to have my wedding on the days where there was no social media, because I’m so private to the point where I honestly don’t know certain things about my self but we have made lifetime friends via this platform and it’s only right that we do right by them by sharing our happy moments with them because that’s what friends do.

We originally wanted to have our wedding during the month of Ramadan on a Monday on the Island with just our parents and 3 friends each, because we believe that being private cuts away as much negativity as possible and I also believe that evil eye is real (call me old school dun care)

Lol but that was a battle we couldn’t win, what would happen to all the aunties that used to send me money when I was broke? The neighbor that had to baby sit me and change my diaper when my mum was not home, My favorite cousins that used to help me eat my Eba when I was young so that I would not get into trouble for not finishing my food? The friends that we read for exams together and I passed because of them ? The friends that helped me submit assignment when I couldn’t go to class for one reason or the other? The aunties that always give me their baff ups so I could slay at events? The aunties that used to take me to birthday parties when I was young? The aunty that bought me my first body spray and diary?



How were they supposed to miss my big day? It took a long time for me to accept that they were supposed to share this joyous day with usbut by the time I did, it was already too late for me to properly plan a wedding, so we started doing wuru wuru.

Initially I wanted every vendor to be a family member or a friend or at least someone I knew but I had to mix old and new all together .

Now let’s start with @tmtbylayinka I called her last week at about 9 pm to book a slot, when she said she would be available I screamed for joy, fast forward to today, she kept to time! And she was too pleasant, I had a surprise in the middle of the make up and used tears to almost scatter the whole thing but she was just there smiling, like as if she was already expecting it.

[ @lisamelz: ] The Lagos state police command are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a six-year-old boy, Treasure Akinsohun, whose body was allegedly found inside a freezer of a neighbor in the Ketu, Alapere area of Lagos.





According to reports, Treasure and his mother lived in Ikorodu and had gone to Ketu to celebrate the Easter with his mother’s younger sister. Treasure and the other children in his aunt’s compound were playing when he suddenly disappeared. His body was later found inside a freezer at Orisigun Street, about five streets from where his mother’s younger sister resides.





Narrating how it all happened, his distraught mother, Eunice Akinsohun, said she noticed her son was not among the other children that were playing in the compound, and When she asked for his whereabouts, the other children could not give an answer. She searched around for him but could not find him. She immediately went to Alapare Police Station to report her missing son.




“I also called my husband on the phone to inform him of the development. “Before I got back home, a crowd had gathered at my sister’s house at Alapere to help in the search for my son. Throughout that day we couldn’t locate the exact place where he was. When my husband eventually arrived, he also tried his best with my sister’s husband and some elders in the community. He was still not found. That was how we went to back to Ikorodu that night with tears and anguish.” she told New Telegraph

Eunice said she and her husband were on their way back to Alapere from Ikorodu when they received a phone call that her son had been found in a woman’s freezer at Orisigun Street.




“Immediately I saw the corpse of my son, I fainted. I was later revived at the hospital. “What surprised me was how my son got into a freezer at another Lagos CP, Mu’azu street. I still don’t understand how he got into the freezer as I speak with you. But it is left for the police to investigate.”

[ @lisamelz: ] After thousands of people attended Kanye West’s Sunday Service during Coachella’s second weekend, the rapper is now said to be considering starting his own church.





A source close to West told PEOPLE: “He is extremely passionate about his faith and wants to share it more regularly with people. He spends a lot of time studying and praying, and wants to share his journey.”



The source went on to explain, “Say what you want about Kanye, but he really does want to help people who need support. He understands brokenness and the need for healing, probably more than most people. He believes in the healing powers of music, but also believes that God can step in and heal people’s brokenness and their issues.”



The insider said West has “talked about starting his own church, and what exactly that would be,” adding, “It wouldn’t be the traditional, 3-hymns-and-a-sermon thing. Instead, it would be a way to point people to Jesus through the arts and through a community of people who love and care for each other. He also wants his kids to be raised in faith, and the best way for him to do that is to live out his faith.”



This comes after Coachella production sources told TMZ that 50,000 festival-goers woke up early to see West on Easter Sunday.

The services attracted plenty of celebrities, including West’s wife, Kim Kardashian West and her sisters Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Kendall Jenner. Kylie’s boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott, was there.



Other A-listers in attendance included DMX, Lizzo, Donald Glover, Teyana Taylor, 2 Chainz, Kid Cudi and Chance the Rapper.

Recall that it was reported yesterday that a gateman has rejected a house offer as a parting gift from his boss whom he served for 25 years. He, instead, requested that a borehole be sunk for his community which he said lacked water. Usman, who had served the Indian national, Mr. V. Verghese, who is also the Managing Director of a pharmaceutical company, Jawa International Limited in Lagos, for 25 years, left the service in order to reunite with his family in the village.



When Usman was leaving, Verghese offered to build a house for him to appreciate his diligence while he was his gateman. He however opted for a borehole in his community.




Akin Alabi who reacted to report admitted that it was selfless, but however stated that it was not a wise decision because he could have collected the house, sell it and sink multiple boreholes. He wrote;

Selfless decision but not very wise. Collect the house, sell it and sink multiple boreholes. The suggestion is not in the verbatim. With some critical thinking, he would have gotten a better deal.

Who is talking about chasing money? We are still on the charity level. Maybe he would have gotten two boreholes. Maybe a borehole and repair of village classroom. Boss was ready to build a house. He could have gotten more for his people with deeper thinking.

[ @Steppex: ] The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday alerted that the life of its Osun State governorship candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, is in danger.



Briefing journalists in Abuja, the party, through its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, alleged that “certain desperate elements of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who are unsettled that they cannot stop Senator Adeleke from retrieving his governorship mandate freely given to him by the people of Osun State, are now viciously plotting to use all means to put him out of circulation.”

“Given the series of unrelenting attacks, threats and the desperation now being exhibited by the APC, our party has become apprehensive that there are plots to silence Senator Adeleke as a way to terminate his efforts to retrieve his governorship mandate in the court.

He said: “Part of the plot is to frame and arrest the Principal of his (Adeleke’s) school, Ede Muslim High School, Ede, Mr. Kadili Adejare Abass, on trump-up charges that Senator Adeleke’s School testimonial was forged with the aim of using such fabrication as a basis to smear and clamp down on Adeleke.

“Yesterday, April 24, 2019, the Nigerian police in collaboration with the APC arrested Mr. Abass, the Principal of Ede Muslim High School, Ede, as well as the wife of the school’s Registrar, Mrs. Rofiyat Oladepo and her nine months old baby.

“Information available to the PDP shows that AIG Adeleye Oyebade of Zone II, Osogbo, ordered the arrest of the innocent principal of the school and the registrar.

“When the registrar, Mr. Kabir Oladipo, could not be reached as he is undergoing treatment for legs and arms injuries he sustained in a motor accident, Oyebade allegedly ordered one ASP Faliyu to arrest the wife, Mrs. Rofiyatu Oladepo, with her nine months old baby. Both the innocent mother and her baby were dumped at the Zone II Police Headquarters, Osogbo.”

Meanwhile, the PDP urged the IGP to order the immediate release of the school principal, wife of the school registrar and her baby.

It also implored the APC and its allies to end their schemes against Adeleke.

It, therefore, asked Nigerians to hold the APC and its agents responsible should Senator Adeleke becomes a victim of any harm or sudden disappearance.

[ @Steppex: ] Emmanuel Adebayor has revealed he contemplated suicide while he struggled to deal with the pressure of making it as a professional footballer.



Adebayor, 35, says he was under so much strain when he was trying to make the grade as a player in France he started to plan to end his own life.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City star admits the expectation of people back home in Togo was getting too much for him to deal with as a 16-year-old playing for Metz.

Speaking to the Mail, Adebayor said: “I was 16. All I wanted to do was help my family out but they put huge pressure on me. I could not cope with it.

“When a family is poor, everyone is poor and there is huge solidarity. People will take a bullet for you. But when one makes it, it is like you owe everyone.

“At Metz I was on maybe £3,000 a month. My family asked for a house worth £500,000. The club were tired of me because of my behaviour.

“I remember sitting on my bed one night and thinking ‘What am I doing here? Nobody’s happy with me, so what is the point of living?’ “There was a pharmacy below my apartment, I bought packet after packet of tablets.

“They did not want to sell it to me but I said it was for a charity in Togo. I made the preparations, I drank all the water. I was ready to go.“Then I called my best friend at midnight. He told me not to rush, that I have things to live for.

“‘You have the potential to change Africa. I thought ‘You are a dream-seller and I am not buying any dreams right now.’

“But he took me out of the moment. I thought God must be keeping for something.”

Adebayor went on to enjoy a successful career at club and international level, also enjoying spells with Monaco, Tottenham, Real Madrid and Crystal Palace.

[ @Steppex: ] The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), Ilorin Zonal Office has arrested a legal practitioner, Akeem Jimoh for getting involved in an alleged scam over plots of land that belong to his client, one Alhaji Saka Kareem Oladele to the tune over N7million (Seven Million Naira).



Oladele in his petition to the EFCC alleged that he gave a power of attorney to Jimoh to sell his 35 plots of land, out of which he sold 20 plots to one Mr Michael Jolaiya.



Oladele further alleged that Barrister Jimoh after deducting his commissions on the 20 plots refused to remit the money realised from the sales to him. Jimoh he also alleged, having prepared a sale of land agreement for the 20 plots, still went ahead and fraudulently resold the plots of land to an unsuspecting buyer who have been erecting illegal structures on them, including the 15 plots that are yet to be sold.

“Despite all persuasions and attempts to settle this matter amicably with Mr Akeem Jimoh, he had turned deaf ear to wise counsel and believe that he is above the law. He has also boasted to deal with me”, Oladele stated.

The suspect during interrogation in the Commission, admitted that the petitioner gave him power of attorney to sell the plots of land.

According to him, “The land was handed over to me by Alhaji Saka Oladele via power of attorney dated 2004 to sell his 35 plots of land, situated at Tanker Area, Ilorin, Kwara State, but there was no specific amount mentioned in the power of attorney as at that time.”

The suspect will soon be arraigned in court.

[ @Steppex: ] Okunola Mariam, popularly know as ‘Mory_Coso, an Instagram comedian who got married to KraksTV boss, Femi Bakre has revealed she would have loved to get married when there was no social media.



In her beautiful post about her wedding to Femi Bakre which she prayed will skip every eye, Mariam stated that would have loved to have her wedding on the days where there was no social media. According to her this is because she is so private, but since they’ve made lifetime friends on Instagram it is only right that their happy moments with them because that’s what friends do.



She wrote;

If I were to chose, I would have loved to have my wedding on the days where there was no social media, because I’m so private to the point where I honestly don’t know certain things about my self but we have made lifetime friends via this platform and it’s only right that we do right by them by sharing our happy moments with them because that’s what friends do.

We originally wanted to have our wedding during the month of Ramadan on a Monday on the Island with just our parents and 3 friends each, because we believe that being private cuts away as much negativity as possible and I also believe that evil eye is real (call me old school dun care)

Lol but that was a battle we couldn’t win, what would happen to all the aunties that used to send me money when I was broke? The neighbor that had to baby sit me and change my diaper when my mum was not home, My favorite cousins that used to help me eat my Eba when I was young so that I would not get into trouble for not finishing my food? The friends that we read for exams together and I passed because of them ? The friends that helped me submit assignment when I couldn’t go to class for one reason or the other? The aunties that always give me their baff ups so I could slay at events? The aunties that used to take me to birthday parties when I was young? The aunty that bought me my first body spray and diary?

How were they supposed to miss my big day? It took a long time for me to accept that they were supposed to share this joyous day with usbut by the time I did, it was already too late for me to properly plan a wedding, so we started doing wuru wuru.

Initially I wanted every vendor to be a family member or a friend or at least someone I knew but I had to mix old and new all together .

Now let’s start with @tmtbylayinka I called her last week at about 9 pm to book a slot, when she said she would be available I screamed for joy, fast forward to today, she kept to time! And she was too pleasant, I had a surprise in the middle of the make up and used tears to almost scatter the whole thing but she was just there smiling, like as if she was already expecting it

[ @Steppex: ] An undergraduate who was arrested by the Niger State Police Command, has stated that he only participated in robbery not kidnapping.



The suspect whose arrest came, after one Emenike Odenigbo claimed to have caught two men attempting to abduct his sick son, Chinedu. The three-man gang had attempted to kidnap Chinedu Odenigbo of Angwan Kadara Maitumbi area of Minna.



The suspects, Onwan Onyedika, 20 and Eze Athanasius, 27, who were students of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka and both from Enugu State, were subsequently arrested by the police detectives attached to Maitumbi Division and they claimed they took to crime to make quick money.

Investigation revealed that they came to from Abuja in the company of one Sunday Odenigbo, the younger brother to the complainant, to abduct his nephew. Confessing to the crime, Onyedika who is a 400-level undergraduate of the UNN said he participated in robbery not kidnapping and was reportedly dragged into the crime by Sunday, said to be a 500-level student of the same institution.

He said, “Sunday told me that he wanted to start a business while in school and begged me to accompany him to his brother’s house in Minna to rob him, stating that his brother will not give him the money otherwise, and I accompanied him.

“I don’t know what pushed me to this act. I never knew that my friend had a different thing in mind. To be sincere, I followed him to rob his brother not to kidnap his son. I have disappointed my late father; I don’t have reasons to get involved in this mess I found myself. How can I face my poor widow mother after disappointing her? I have ruined my life.”

[ @Steppex: ] Akin Alabi, Nairabet CEO and House Of Reps Member-elect has stated that the man who rejected a house offer for a borehole in his community didn’t make a wise decision.



Recall that it was reported yesterday that a gateman has rejected a house offer as a parting gift from his boss whom he served for 25 years. He, instead, requested that a borehole be sunk for his community which he said lacked water. Usman, who had served the Indian national, Mr. V. Verghese, who is also the Managing Director of a pharmaceutical company, Jawa International Limited in Lagos, for 25 years, left the service in order to reunite with his family in the village. When Usman was leaving, Verghese offered to build a house for him to appreciate his diligence while he was his gateman. He however opted for a borehole in his community.



Akin Alabi who reacted to report admitted that it was selfless, but however stated that it was not a wise decision because he could have collected the house, sell it and sink multiple boreholes. He wrote;

Selfless decision but not very wise. Collect the house, sell it and sink multiple boreholes. The suggestion is not in the verbatim. With some critical thinking, he would have gotten a better deal.

Who is talking about chasing money? We are still on the charity level. Maybe he would have gotten two boreholes. Maybe a borehole and repair of village classroom. Boss was ready to build a house. He could have gotten more for his people with deeper thinking.

[ @Steppex: ] A parrot has been taken into custody by the police after he almost jeopardized a police raid by tipping off drug dealers to the presence of police.



The parrot, who plays lookout for two crack-dealing suspects, repeatedly yelled “Mamãe, polícia!” meaning “Mama, police!” when it saw police officers moving to raid the hideout.

According to Brazilian police in the state of Piauí, they encountered the unnamed parrot at the home of the two alleged crack cocaine dealers, perched inside a small brick one-story home with a windowless facade. Brazil’s R7 news channel reported that as police searched for the suspects, it seemed the lime-green bird knew exactly what to do.

One officer involved in the operation said: “He must have been trained for this. As soon as the police got close he started shouting.”

The bird’s efforts were not successful, however. Footage of the raid’s aftermath aired by R7 shows police cataloguing small bags of crack while the parrot sits obediently on a countertop next to a racecar helmet and a glass bottle. His apparent owners, a man and teenage girl, were arrested, local newspaper Meio Norte reported.

The “trafficking parrot” (papagaio do tráfico, as news outlets are calling him) was also seen as an officer carried him out of the house on his fingertip, before placing him in a cage and taking him into the Teresina Police Department.

[ @amways: ]
There are so many wonderful initiatives around the world that people are taking in order to stop the catastrophic environmental effect we have on this planet, from animal extinction to water and air pollution, we have definitely made a huge mess on this planet and it’s important to find new and creative ways to stop and restore the damage that has been done. So, there is no surprise that once somebody comes up with a great eco-friendly idea, it is up to encourage it and support it.

One day, Canadian entrepreneur Robert Bezeau got tired of the plastic bottles laying everywhere so he decided to create a new way of reusing them


So, he moved to Bocas del Toro, Panama where he started creating the Plastic Bottle Village. The main goal of this village is to reduce plastic waste that pollutes our landfills and bring this used plastic back to life by incorporating them in construction.



In his public message, Robert states:
“I want the world to realize that we can reuse plastic bottles in many other applications such as:

1. Home insulation
2. Rapid temporary shelters after disasters
3. Buildings for animal’s on farms
4. Building swimming pools
5. Water catchment tanks
6. Septic tanks
7. Agriculture waterways (land drainage)
8. Commercial warehouse construction
9. Barns
10. Roads”

What might not look so pretty during the construction, actually ends up looking like a beautiful house that many of us would love to live in

But building homes is not the only thing this initiative is interested in, their main goal is to raise awareness about the tragic state our planet is in and the importance of reducing plastic waste. Their website also analyzes the history of the plastic waste around the world and what events throughout history had the biggest impact on the plastic bottle pollution that we are currently facing.


“1978: Coca-Cola and Pepsi, introduced the first 2l PET plastic bottles to the World.

We all thought back then that was fantastic, and the greatest invention. You could drop the bottles, re-open them many times, perfect for pick-nick box, etc.

What we did not think about was that the bottlers were going from a returnable glass bottle with consignment, to a non-returnable plastic bottle without consignment.

The bottlers transferred their responsibilities to recycle to us humans of the World. They did not need to pick-up the empties any more, and bring them back to the factory. One way only, WOW what a reduction in cost, and more profits.”

Their website also offers some before and after shots of the home


In fact, everybody can buy a piece of land and build a house on the island. According to the website, the land costs around $19,000 and the architects are ready to build the home of your dreams there.


It takes around 14,000 plastic bottles to build one 100 square metre house in the village

“We will be living inside what we have consumed and thrown away, and will
re-construct those materials into modern, stylish, and quality built residencies. The homes are also earthquake resistant, and very cool in temperature, so there is no need for air conditioning. This will aid in conserving energy for The Village, which is a solar friendly community.


The village also states that the houses are energy saving since the temperature difference between the outside and the inside wall of a plastic bottle home is around 35F cooler, so there is no need for air-conditioning.


“The disadvantage of living on an island, is that all the consumer goods that arrive by FERRY on the island are packaged into plastic. The goods are consumed, and the plastic packaging stay trapped on the island. NEVER YOU SEE THE FERRY RETURN WITH PLASTIC.”


“This island receives more than 100,000 visitors per year that stay on average 5 days. You now have 500,000 visitor days. If each visitor consumes only two drinks a day, you have 1 MILLION plastic bottles a year left behind on a small island.”


The plastic village also offers a stay at the Plastic Castle

The main idea behind the castle is to inspire others to understand how much plastic surround us every day and to encourage people to use less of it or at least reuse it mindfully.


It took 2 years to finish the castle, it has four levels and is built using 40,000 PET bottles.


It took 2 years to finish the castle, it has four levels and is built using 40,000 PET bottles.
There are two guest rooms in the castle and one royal suite, there is also a dining bar as well as a dining area and a gathering level with a fantastic view.

There is also a plastic bottle “jail” that you can visit and educate yourself on the terrible impact our actions have on the planet

Visiting the “jail” aims to encourage people to help the planet as well as educate young children on the importance of environmental issues.


Although crimes against the planet due to plastic bottle waste is very real, The Dungeon is a fun vacation place where one can become part of the pollution solution by ‘jailing yourself’ for these crimes.

Castle Inspiration offers a unique opportunity to sleep in a jail cell where you have the key. Combining the need for a more earth-friendly existence with a humorous twist on the consequences of ones actions. A stay at The Dungeon presents the opportunity to become more aware of the growing plastic problem while having a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.


In fact, this is not the only place people use plastic bottles for a good cause

Image credits: UNHCR

According to the UNHCR, in the remote desert of southwest Algeria, a young refugee is filling used plastic bottles and building shelters that better withstand the harsh climate. The idea of using plastic bottles as a material to use for construction is spreading across the world as it is not only cheap it also solves a huge pollution problem.





This is creativity in display.

[ @janga12: ] Give Nigerians reason for visit, PDP tells President
Olusola Fabiyi, John Ameh, Olalekan Adetayo and Adelani Adepegba

The Peoples Democratic Party and the Coalition of United Political Parties on Thursday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to disclose his reason for embarking on a 10-day trip to the United Kingdom.

They said it was wrong for the President to embark on a journey without telling Nigerians what he would do while away.

Their reactions followed a statement from the Presidency that President Muhammadu would travel to the UK on Thursday on a “private visit.”

The President, who was on an official visit to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, on Thursday, was expected to travel to the UK after the trip to the north-eastern state. He will be away till May 5.

Due to this, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo presided over the Federal Executive Council meeting where the Federal Government approved N52bn for the electronic monitoring of Nigeria’s borders with neighbouring countries.

The statement by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, stated, “Further to the official visit by President Muhammadu Buhari to Lagos on Wednesday where he inaugurated a number of projects executed by the state government, the President is scheduled to depart for Maiduguri, the Borno State capital for another official visit on Thursday.

“He is expected to inaugurate developmental projects especially in the sectors of education, health care and roads.

“At the end of the visit, President Buhari will be proceeding to the United Kingdom on a private visit. He is expected to return to Nigeria on May 5, 2019.”

However, the National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, who spoke with one of our correspondents, said it was improper for the President to travel with public funds but fail to “disclose his movements.”

He said it would be wrong for the President to allow Nigerians to be speculating on whether he (the President) was attending to his health or not.

Secondus said, “The President is not travelling as in individual. He is travelling as the President of Nigeria who was elected by Nigerians in 2015 to lead them.

“He is not going to the UK on a commercial airline; but on a presidential jet that is being maintained by taxpayers. Nigerians are going to be responsible for his welfare and the welfare of those who are going with him.

“The President should therefore open up and tell Nigerians his itinerary in the UK. Is he going on holiday? Is he going for medicals? Who are those who will be his guests there and where will he visit? Is he going on a short break?

“These are not too much to tell the people, especially by a man who preaches integrity and always claims that his government has nothing to hide.”

Nigeria is on autopilot under Buhari, says CUPP

In its reaction, the CUPP said the trip had proved that the country had been on autopilot since he assumed office.

The coalition’s national spokesman, Imo Ugochinyere, said this in an interview with one of our correspondents.

Ugochinyere also said since his trips were funded with taxpayers’ money, the President should disclose the reason for his latest travel instead of tagging it a private visit.

He said, “The President is taking Nigerians for granted. He does whatever he likes without bothering about anybody. After spending over a year outside the country in the last four years, he has again embarked on what he called a private visit with the taxpayers’ money.

“The man is not doing anything. The country is on autopilot. The country has been on autopilot since he took over and it is still on autopilot.

“If he is going for regular medicals, he should be bold enough to tell us. If he is going on holiday, he should also tell us because his trips are funded with taxpayers’ money.

“It is clear that the country does not have a competent leader. The job of the President is a 24 hours job but this man is not doing this job.”

Buhari’s frequent trips alarming, says group


On his part, the Executive Director, United Global Resolve for Peace, Shalom Olaseni, said the President had the constitutional right to leave the country even for more than a week without disclosing his itinerary in as much as proper handing over to the Vice-President was done.

He, however, expressed concerns over Buhari’s frequent trips, which he said, had not yielded any benefit to the nation.

Presidency declines to shed more light on President’s ‘private visit’

However, in spite of the crticisms by the opposition, attempts made by The PUNCH to get the reaction of the President’s media managers did not yield fruit.

An enquiry mail The PUNCH sent to Adesina and the Senior Special Assistant to Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, was not responded to as of the time of filing this report on Thursday night.



Buhari is also set to hold a valedictory session for members of the Federal Executive Council on May 22, less than a week to his inauguration for a second term on May 29.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Mr Lai Mohammed, disclosed this while speaking to State House Correspondents at the end of Thursday’s FEC meeting in Abuja.

Mohammed stated that the cabinet would be intact until May 22 when the President would host the ministers to a valedictory session.

“We will be having a valedictory session on May 22.The cabinet remains intact,” he added.

Recall that the ministers were a week earlier directed to submit “status reports on policies, programmes and projects” under their watch by Wednesday, April 24, preparatory to the winding down of the first term of the President.”

Mohammed said the fact that the valedictory session of the federal cabinet would be held on May 22, 2019 did not mean that the cabinet would be dissolved on the same day.

Clarifying his earlier statement to State House correspondents after Thursday’s Federal Executive Council meeting in Abuja, the minister said it was the prerogative of the President to dissolve the cabinet anytime he chose.

“It is therefore inaccurate to extrapolate from my statement – that the FEC valedictory session will hold on May 22 – to say that the President will dissolve the cabinet on the same day. They do not mean the same thing,” he said.

FEC okays N52bn for e-border monitoring in Buhari’s absence


Meanwhile, the FEC on Thursday approved N52bn for the electronic monitoring of Nigeria’s loose borders with neighbouring countries in Buhari’s absence.

The Minister of Interior, Lt. Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (retd.), who spoke on the border projects, said 86 border posts would be covered.

He added that the 1,400 illegal smuggling routes along the borders would also be monitored electronically on completion of the projects.

The minister said, “You will recall that when we came, I made the observation that our borders are very porous and diverse and that it is impossible to man these borders physically. Therefore, there is the need for modern technologies to be able to monitor our borders. We also thought of the capacity to respond to emergencies at the borders.

“It is on this note that I presented a memo today (Thursday) for this e-border solution. This process started in 2012 but we picked it up to move forward when we came in. The project is to be completed within the next two years and it will cost about N52bn.

“There is a pilot project already which has been very successful; it was installed to monitor two borders.

“This project is going to cover 86 border posts in the country. We will be able to also monitor 1,400 illegal routes that are used for smuggling and all kinds of cross-border criminal activities.”

In addition, the FEC approved N202.6m for the completion of the Ingawa Dam in Katsina State and the Mangu Dam located in Plateau State.
