Nigeria's First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan  have been in the news  these days on controversial topics. 
1. Her appointment as a Permanent Secretary in Bayelsa state is yet to settle down 

2. The  squabble with the former first lady, Turai Yar’Adua over a property located in the central business district of Abuja. Although the Attorney General of the Federation has asked the court handling the case to discontinue further hearing, and the case would now be settled out of court.

3.Recently, she was in the news over the rumoured purchase of 200 cars for the African First Lady’s Summit. A newspaper had reported that the Federal Government procured a total of 200 “exotic cars” for the African First Ladies Summit, which formally opens in Abuja.

But, The Presidency in a quick statement signed yesterday by Presidential spokesman, Dr. Reuben Abati,wanted to clear the rumours and straighten up the facts.

The full statement reads;
 “The true facts of the matter are as follows: The African First Ladies Peace Mission which is holding its summit in Abuja is a Non-Governmental Organisation. Its activities are funded by stakeholders and members of the private sector who support and identify with its objectives.
“In accordance with its modus operandi, the AFLPM set up several committees, including a finance committee to raise funds and sponsorship for the organisation of its Abuja Summit.
“As part of its own contributions to the successful hosting of the summit by the First Lady, Patience Jonathan, Coscharis Motors Ltd.  offered to provide some cars for the event at no cost to the organisers or the Federal Government of Nigeria.
“Under an agreement signed by the committee and Coscharis Motors, all the cars will be returned to the company after the summit.”

The reality is does not solves any of our problems here in Nigeria....and it is not an impossible scenario. We know the type of country Nigeria is and i will not be suprised it is proven otherwise. For now, we take Mr Abati for his words.  Madam First Lady is obviously living her life.....i guess it is her time.


K-Stewart was photographed kissing her married "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders is not new.... and yes Kristen Stewart (22) cheated on Robert Pattinson (26) much as it is suprising. it is not suprising at the same time. The things that goes on behind the closed doors in Hollywood.......are not things many of us know unless the cover gets blown. It is only those who are caught red handed that suffer.....and its only those you hear that shocks you, how about those ones we have not heard and will never get the chance to hear????
Who would have thought that K-Stewart will do that to Rob? It all seemed perfect and you know people just loved them..... but a lot of things are not what they seem. How exactly does a 22year old hottie get caught up in a fling with a man in his forties?  and how does a man married to a model succumbs to such a temptation? These things can get messy sometimes and you never know.... Hollywood isn't as perfect as it looks. I guess on movie sets, emotions do run wild.....
"I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected,This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."
Rob may be having some quiet thinking right now.....the feeling of being cheated on is hurtful and annoying. I am so much of his fan but i feel really bad for a guy of his type who had this to say about cheating:

When Us Weekly  asked the British actor whether he could ever date a married woman, Pattinson replied, "Life is not black and white. There are married couples that never see each other. Is that marriage?"
On Cheating he said; "But there's a thing I've never got: That is, why do people cheat?"
"I can understand the impulse," Pattinson continued. "But not how you can keep two relationships going at the same time for long."
Before K-Stew scandalised herself in this supposed fling, pals told Us Weekly that Pattinson was preparing to propose to his Stewart.
"I'm not the casual-affair kind of guy," he told Vanity Fair. "If I choose to be with someone, it's because I really want it. When I have a relationship, I'm 100 percent into it." (Ouch! it really hurts)

Liberty Ross,  Sanders wife also appeared in the film – as the mother of Stewart’s character.Yesterday, just as news of Stewart and Sanders’ affair broke, Ross tweeted a famous quote from Marilyn Monroe, "Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” That post was followed by a single word, “Wow,” and then Ross deleted her account soon after.  I guess, the tweet meant just more than words to her. 
Sanders  also issued one of his own. "I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family,My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together."

This is a marriage relationship....forgivesness as hard as it is remains the best thing!
