Read footballer Samuel Eto'o's 'strong' statement on Boko Haram

Former Cameroon captain Samuel Eto'o is using his fame for a good cause as he has now given a strong statement against the deadly terrorists called Boko Haram ravaging the Northern part of Nigeria. The former Barcelona and Chelsea star has set up the Yellow Whistleblower FC foundation to raise funds and awareness to help people fleeing Nigeria and Cameroon amid the increasing amount of attacks from Boko Haram militants.

Eto’o, says it's time the world stepped up its response to this menace called Boko Haram. The 34-year-old urged leaders and the media to react as they did to the terror attack on the Charlie Hebdo magazine offices in Paris in January.
“It is important for us to talk about it — if we don’t do it, who will? We all tried to offer our support (after Charlie Hebdo). We saw African head of states coming to Paris to offer their support to France." He said in an interview with CNN.

“Why, when it comes to Africa — when it comes to our continent — don’t we do anything? Maybe because the media are not doing what they should do.

“When it comes to Charlie Hebdo, we talk about it. The media were right: It was important to talk about that. However when it comes to Boko Haram, we need to wait for the most horrific things to happen for the media to say a word." said the four-time African player of the year.

“After that, everybody stops talking about it. It is like nothing ever happened.

“I think journalists should have denounced this situation. We saw what happened in France. We were very sad about this. We were asking ourselves, ‘How can this happen? How can they succeed? How can these people take away lives of happy people who had families and friends?'”

“I was affected, like many of my African brothers, by Boko Haram. We haven’t been affected by such horrors in a very long time,” he said. “We are seeing these atrocities and we seem powerless.

“We need to cope with this situation. We need to denounce it and find solutions at our level while our armed forces do their own job on the ground.”

Eto’o said one of the most effective ways to defeat Boko Haram and its ideology would be through education, which he called “the most formidable weapon.”

“We need to create schools and give the possibility to these children to learn and understand,” explained Eto’o, whose illustrious career has taken him to Italy, Spain, Russia, England and Turkey, winning three European Champions League titles. He was reportedly one of the the world’s highest-paid players at Anzhi Makhachkala.

“Some of these children affected by the situation are young and are easily manipulable, and they are manipulated. These children are used and join this terrorist organization.”

Eto’o, who now plays for Turkish club Antalyaspor, said: “We wanted to show the right way to our young brothers, but the ignorance that we have in Africa leads to our own brothers shooting at us.

“When you are African, and you are sometimes better (at something) than Europeans or Americans, you’re not considered African.

“It’s frustrating but you can’t be mad. I refuse to be ignorant. The only message that I want to give is that I want people to have easy access to education.”

Husband Makes Wife Go Through Surgeries To Fulfil Her Dream Of Wearing A Bikini & Mark Her 40th Birthday

A woman has worn a bikini for the first time in 15 years after her devoted husband treated her to the £8,000 body she had always dreamed of as an early 40th birthday present. Emma Beardmore was gifted a tummy tuck and breast augmentation by her husband Paul, 42, as a joint present for the couple's wedding anniversary, her birthday and Christmas.
The operation, which saw her increase her cup size from an A to a D , meant she finally felt confident enough to wear a bikini for the first time in 15 years. Emma says she never believed she could wear a bikini again because she lost her body 14 years ago after given birth to their daughter and admitted she started eating a lot. Her dream of wearing a bikini has however come true after her husband spent £8000 on her for a cosmetic surgery.
It has been 11 weeks since Emma's tummy tuck and breast augmentation, which was done through cosmetic surgery experts Mya and she said she is doing very well. See a photo of her before the surgeries after the cut.

Fear of abuse from fans is preventing gay footballers from coming out- Jermaine Jenas

Is the world ready for gay footballer? I doubt it! The player who once donned the colours of London clubs Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham Hotspurs says players are scared of receiving abuse from fans and as a result will do anything to prevent revealing their gay status.

The Mirror last weekend revealed two Premier League stars are set to come out before the start of next season as gay, though neither player's name has been disclosed.

The news received widespread support from within the football community, with Thierry Henry in particular saying it would be great for the sport.

But former Tottenham and Newcastle midfielder Jenas, believes players have no qualms or issues with sharing a dressing room with a gay footballer for a long time now and it is only abuse from the fans that is holding gay players from coming out.

 "I have never come across a single player who has come out in English football, but that's not because of players' attitudes. The place a gay player would get the most support - and the least amount of problems - is from their team-mates." He said in his column for yahoo.

"When you're in a football team you're in it together, no matter what, and every player would accept a gay team-mate with no problem whatsoever.

"It's a fear of being abused at away grounds that most prevents footballers coming out. Football is a game where we still have fans meeting up for a pre-match scrap - we're talking borderline caveman stuff. You can imagine the homophobic songs that would rear their heads if a football player came out as gay."

It should be noted that no Eenglish premier league or even British footballer has ever come out to confirm his gay status.

In 2013 American Robbie Rogers became the second male footballer based in Britain to come out. At the time he was a free agent having been released from Leeds United. After coming out, Rogers briefly retired before reversing his decision and signing for the club Los Angeles Galaxy.

Kogi State University is in the news for unpleasant reason

Kogi State University is in the news for unpleasant reasons again as lesbian records involving students of the university recently emerged on the campus. Some of the students involved are those of Economics and English Education departments.

The two popular students in one of the videos revealed how deep the culture of Lesbianism had infiltrated the female hostels in the school.
Already, one of the students is considering leaving the school to avoid possible stigmatization as the videos had gone viral.

A female student in the Department of Zoology who craved anonymity, told Vanguard that Lesbianism was becoming a big issue in the university.

She said young, fresh undergraduates were lured into the immoral club as many of them do not know what was in it before joining the lesbian ring.

“Kogi State University is fast becoming the comfort zone for lesbians. Many Jambites are lured into the ring because they don’t even know what it is all about.

"What they do now is to relocate off-campus in order to enjoy the privacy needed for their illicit and immoral act. Once in it, it is so difficult to renounce because lesbians share a lot of gifts to keep victims in it.

"The authorities of this school may need to take drastic steps to restore the moral integrity and discipline for which we were known,” she said.

When Vanguard got in contact with one of the lesbians, she said she was lured into Lesbianism in her first week on campus by a very wealthy 300 student.

She said she was not aware that their s*x escapades were recorded. “My attention was drawn to the video in circulation by one of my friends. When I watched it, I knew that was the end of my stay in this school.

"Many of my course mates already have the video, so it will be difficult for me to continue. I have brought shame to myself and my family,” she lamented.

Sources say investigations into the issue of Lesbianism among the students had commenced.

You Have to Read What this Good Mother Told Her Daughter on Her Wedding Day

The best woman a man can have in his life is a wife who is not promiscuous and knows God truly. The best person a lady needs when she's getting married is a mum who's a virtuous woman. Read below:

My beautiful daughter, you are now a wife and soon you’ll be become a mother too. God bear me witness that I taught you how to cook and do other house chores. I taught you to respect your man and to explain your anger to him when necessary but if you do otherwise, I know you, not as a daughter but as my fellow woman.

My daughter, you see this your husband? You have told me that he is a gentleman, but don’t take advantage of that. Don’t bring out the beast in him... My daughter, you see this mark on my forehead? Your father gave it to me. He tolerated me everytime but on that day, he came unexpectedly. It wasn’t his intention but i dared him and he hit hard.

My daughter, men hate it when you use the word “YOU CAN’T DO IT”. He sure can do more than but he’s just protecting you from harm. My daughter, whenever there is an argument or misunderstanding, try drinking water. You can’t talk when you have water in your mouth.

Now, you have two families.You are very lucky. Tolerate and appreciate them just as you did here. Learn to welcome other people’s kids and soon, children will surround your table with love.

You see that my big pot? I bought it when I still had no child but I always cooked with it to feed children who had nothing to eat. Learn to show hospitality. Welcome a visitor and at least, offer a glass of water. Don’t discriminate.

Don’t shatter your husband’s family. Instead, bring them together. Learn to appreciate little efforts and soon, they’ll learn to do more.

Today, you are wearing a wedding gown and you look so beautiful in it but there is still another gown you need to wear. That is the MATERNITY gown. I wore it and you shall wear your’s too.

When you have a misunderstanding, don’t come back here. Sort things out and build a happy home. I built mine and your father enjoyed me.

Men like food. They like both the KITCHEN food and the BEDROOM food. Don’t deny him any of the food all because you had an argument.

If the ones I taught you are not enough, learn more for the good of your marriage and peace in your home.
