Crystal Okoye
Nollywood up and coming actress, Crystal Okoye in an interview has warned any guy who intends to date her to be strong, good and capable in bed or they should not get anywhere near her.

The actress who once said she fully supports sex before marriage so that she can know if her man is capable, also said that she loves sex so much and would not even consider going out with a man who cannot perform to her satisfaction and that her man must be ready to 'give' to her anytime she wants it.

Okoye in her statement: "I am not one of those women who would tell you sex doesn’t matter; it matters a lot to me.

"If a man cannot perform, I have no business with him. You have to be a complete man to be with me.

"I love sex, and I am not going to pretend I don’t. I know most girls even fake orgasm just to please their partners but I am not that kind of girl."

LASU gate

The Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo, has fixed Thursday as the deadline for the payment of school fees by its fresh students. A statement signed by the LASU Public Relations Officer, Mr Kayode Sutton, on Wednesday said that the deadline would not be extended.

The institution warned that only students who paid the school fees would be issued matriculation numbers.
It urged the new students to make all necessary payments on or before the deadline in readiness for their matriculation on Friday.

LASU said that adherence to instructions would enable it to ensure a hitch-free academic calendar.
It urged all its students to be of good behaviour and abide by the rules and regulations of the institution.
The 2013/2014 newly admitted students began their screening on 10 March.

Turkish court lifts Twitter ban

Turkish users of Twitter are expected to regain access shortly after a court ordered the suspension of the ban on the social media site.

The court in the capital, Ankara, issued a stay of execution on last week’s decision by the country’s telecommunication authority.

Once the court informs the TIB, the ban is expected to be lifted.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed to "wipe out Twitter" after users spread allegations of corruption.

At a rally ahead of important local elections on Sunday, Erdogan was quoted by Reuters news agency as saying: "I don’t understand how people of good sense could defend this Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. There are all kinds of lies there."

A ban was imposed on Friday on the grounds that Twitter had failed to remove the allegations of corruption involving senior officials.

However, users found many ways of circumventing the prohibition, which was widely criticised and ridiculed.

A number of complaints were filed to courts, arguing the ban was illegal and unconstitutional.

The administrative court in Ankara issued a temporary injunction on Wednesday ordering the TIB to restore access to Twitter, the Associated Press reports.

While the TIB has a right to object to the injunction, access to Twitter should be reopened before a second decision is made, unnamed legal experts told Turkish daily Hurriyet in an article.

The private broadcaster NTV television was quoted by AFP news agency as saying the TIB was expected to grant access to Twitter in the coming hours.

Court adjourns Fani-Kayode’s trial to Mar 6

A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, standing trial on charges of money laundering is to be arraigned on March 6.
He is to be arraigned before Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia of the Federal High Court, Lagos.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Ofili-Ajumogobia on Feb. 10, upheld the submission of Mr Festus Keyamo, the Prosecuting Counsel.

Keyamo had filed an application, seeking court’s permission to re-arraign Fani-Kayode on a fresh 40-count charge of money laundering.

But the Defence Counsel, Mr Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN), while opposing Keyamo’s application, said the court lacked competence to entertain the matter because the prosecution failed to disclose sources of the alleged laundered monies.

However, in her ruling, Ofili-Ajumogobia, upheld Kayemo’s submission, saying that the failure of disclosure of the sources was not fatal to the case.

Ruling that the court was competent to adjudicate on the fresh 40-count charge against the accused, Ofili-Ajumogobia ordered the re-arraignment of Fani-Kayode on March 5.

At the resumed hearing of the case, the court adjourned the matter to March 6 at the instance of the prosecution.

NAN recalls that Fani-Kayode was first arraigned sometime in December, 2008 before Justice Ramat Mohammed on a 47-count charge.

He had pleaded not guilty to the charges and was granted bail in the sum of N200 Million with two sureties in like sum.

The former minister was again re-arraigned before Justice Binta Murtala-Nyako, after the transfer of Mohammed.

Ajumogobia is now the third judge to hear the case in the past five years, with the EFCC dropping seven counts from the original 47-count charge.

In the charge, the accused is alleged to have transacted funds exceeding N500,000 without undergoing due financial process.

The EFCC is also accusing Fani-kayode of receiving cash payments to the tune of about N100 million as Minister of Aviation and later Minister of Culture and Tourism.

The prosecution said the offence contravened the provisions of Sections 15(1) (a) (b) (c) (d) and 15 (2) (a) (b) of the Money Laundering (Prohibition) Act, 2004.

Stressing that the administration is emphasising on transformation, he urged the new ministers to ensure they listen to the people and address their concerns.

He maintained that all the ministers are eminently qualified to be Ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Stating that more new ministers will be announced next week, he said that he will reserve his comments on the appointments till next week.
