Press statement from the PDP below...
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) wishes to bring to the notice of President Buhari that the apparent absence of an economic team in the third month of his administration is leading the country into economic quagmire and doldrums. In the past, we had given examples of the devastating effect of lack of an economic team and a clear-cut fiscal policy by this administration as evidenced in the lull and painful decline in the stock market, spiral rate of inflation, the disastrous outing of the government team in bilateral talks during the recent visit to the United States of America and the shambolic state of our economy at present.

This 24 year old Nigerian lady says she's slept with 600 men

The unidentified lady claims she slept with over 600 men in a year. That is definitely an exaggeration because we only have 365 days in a year and if you had every day with different men, (which is impossible, cmon!) you still have to account for about 235 days. Anyway, the student of a vocational institute in Owerri, Imo State, told Sunday Sun that she resorted to using her body for money when her boyfriend who was sponsoring her education abandoned her.
“My boyfriend whom I met at Onitsha, Anambra State when I went to visit an un­cle was sponsoring my education. We had agreed to get married as soon as possible. Then some people I regarded as friends started peddling wicked lies against me and without confirming if what they were saying was true or false, he called it quits just like that. They told him I had an incur­able disease. So, I decided to help myself because my parents cannot do anything for me. We are poor” she explained.
She also had a very interesting interview with The Sun newspaper reporter. Read that after the cut...
