BUNI TV presents The Presidential Word Association Game

What our leaders past and present really think about Nigerians, Democracy, and a certain V-word.

Abdel Fattah El-Sisi wins Egypt's presidential election

Egypt's General Abdel Fattah El-Sisi cruised to a landslide victory in an election some claim was little more than political theatre. Low voter turnout could threaten his claims of public popularity and mandate to govern.

Abdul Fattah al-Sisi said he won 23.38 million votes, with left-wing politician Hamdeen Sabahi taking 735,285. Invalid votes were 1.07 million, or nearly 350,000 more than the number of votes for the 59-year-old Sabahi.

The victory by retired field marshal Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi was never in doubt, but the career infantry officer had pushed for a strong turnout to bestow legitimacy on his ouster last July of Egypt's first freely elected president, the Islamist Mohammed Morsi.

Famous Ukrainian Prankster, Vitalii Sediuk Assaults Brad Pitt during 'Maleficent' Premiere

Event security wrestled the man to the ground and detained him until LAPD arrived, took him to the Hollywood precinct, and arrested him for battery.

Read President Goodluck Jonathan's Democracy Day Speech

Fellow Nigerians,

1. I greet and felicitate with you all, today, as we mark 15 years of uninterrupted democratic governance in our beloved country.

2. Our dear nation, Nigeria, has certainly come a long way and made notable progress since our first Democracy Day on May 29, 1999 when the military finally relinquished power and handed over to a democratically-elected government, marking the true beginning of a government of the people, by the people, for the people.”

Hospital fire mishap claims 21 lives, injures dozen

A fire swept through a hospital in South Korea early Wednesday, killing 21 people and leaving six others in a critical condition.

Most of the patients who died at the hospital in Janseong county, south of the capital Seoul, were in their seventies and eighties, Yonhap news agency said, citing police and fire officials.

Iran summons Mark Zuckerberg, blocks Instagram and WhatsApp

Iran has ordered Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to appear in court to answer complaints by individuals who say Facebook-owned applications Instagram and WhatsApp violate their privacy.

The order which was deliver by judge in southern Iran also ordered the two apps blocked. It is highly unlikely that Zuckerberg would appear in an Iranian court, since there is no extradition treaty between Iran and the United States. Some Iranian courts have in recent years issued similar rulings that could not be carried out.

Facebook is already officially banned in the country, along with other social websites like Twitter and YouTube, as well as their mobile apps. However, some senior leaders like Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif are active on Twitter, and many Iranians use proxy servers to access banned websites and applications.

The administration of moderate President Hassan Rouhani is opposed to blocking such websites before authorities create local alternatives. Social media has offered a new way for him and his administration to reach out to the West as it negotiates with world powers over the country’s contested nuclear program.

Chelsea Release Lampard, Cole, Eto’o

Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole and Samuel Eto'o look set to leave Chelsea this summer following the expiry of their contracts. The club have yet to comment, but the trio are included on the list of released players submitted to the Premier League.Although they could yet be retained, the list indicates that offers to extend their deals have not been agreed.

Cole, 33, had recently said on Twitter that he expected to leave Stamford Bridge following a season in which he lost his place in the team to Cesar Azpilicueta.
Eto'o, too, had appeared certain to move on after just one year in west London, with the Cameroon international criticising coach Jose Mourinho following remarks he made earlier in the campaign about his age.

However, Lampard, 35, was thought likely to sign an extension along with club captain John Terry, who finally committed to a new deal earlier this month.

Also departing the club are back-up goalkeepers Mark Schwarzer, who deputised for Petr Cech at the end of the season, and Hilario, who had been with the Blues since 2006.
Milan Lalkovic and Sam Hutchinson are among the others to exit. Hutchinson had come through the youth ranks at the club before being forced into retirement in 2010 only to re-sign in 2011 after an improvement in his knee injury.

Meanwhile, striker Demba Ba has revealed that Mourinho convinced him to stay at Chelsea.

5 Things your man will never tell you

1. He finds your best friend/sister/mom attractive. If you think she's pretty, he probably does too.

2. He's scared of rats. He's going to suck it up and kill that giant rat that got into the room even though it freaks him out.

3. You two probably have a lot in common, but there are definitely one or two things he does just because it makes you happy. He will sit there and get excited about Africa Magic Yoruba, and he will take his hatred for it to his grave.

4. He's scared of the future. Making a five-year plan is scarier than rats, but only marginally scarier.

5. If you've gained weight. He will never touch this one. No matter how many ways you phrase, "I think I need to lose weight," he will change the subject. He will start a house fire just to avoid the subject.

Youtube set to acquire the largest on-line game streaming video platform, Twitch

Two online video titans are about to team-up. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google's YouTube is in negotiations to buy video game streaming service Twitch. The deal has been reached, with a price of $1 billion. The WSJ, though, contends talks are still in an early stage.

Should the deal go through, it would be a massive validation for Twitch, which has become the Internet's go-to spot to watch and broadcast live gameplay sessions in a mere three years.

Assuming that $1 billion price tag is correct, this would be the fifth largest acquisition in Google's history -- right below the company's 2006 purchase of YouTube for $1.65 billion -- underscoring the site's importance to Google.

The truth between Monalisa Chinda and Lanre Nzeribe - By Grace Amanda

My name is Grace Amanda I am a friend to both Lanre Nzeribe and Monalisa Chinda I have decided to write my name in this story so that both parties know exactly where this is coming from.

I know both parties well, I have related with them well enough to know what they are capable of and I know almost everything that went down in that relationship and I can assure you this story is true. I know commentators would wonder why I bother writing this or how it’s my business what happened between those two but I think I owe it to humanity to speak because most of what you people know is either wrong or not completely true. Most of you have concluded that Lanre Nzeribe is the demon and villain while Monalisa Chinda is the victim in that relationship but I tell you the opposite is the case. I guess the saying is true, “appearance is deceptive”

Dusk To Dawn Curfew As Church, Mosques Burnt In Southern Kaduna

A dusk-to-dawn curfew has been imposed following the burning of a church, and at least two mosques, including some buildings today in Southern Kaduna by armed Christian and Muslim followers. The skirmishes occurred in the military town of Kachia that houses both the Nigerian Navy and Army institutions, military personnel confirmed the occurrence of the attacks to SaharaReporters.

The source, speaking to us on the condition of anonymity, said angry Muslims had attacked a church after their own praying ground was torched by Christians in the area. The military source also said the Nigerian military, and police officials, have both taken over the town as a dusk-to-dawn curfew was imposed by the Kaduna State government in view of a possible escalation.

The mood in Kachia on Sunday evening following both events is “tense,” say our sources. The police authorities in the state are yet to make an official public announcement of their on-the-ground observations on the unfolding events of recent hours.  On the issue of casualties, possible fatalities, and details of property damage to the other buildings inside Kachia are not yet known.  

Police officials have also not yet released any information following the series of attacks, nor what caused the inflamed religious confrontations in Kachia.
