Going by reports coming from the hilltop mansion residence of Nigeria’s former military president, Ibrahim Babangida, have it that he is seriously ill. A source close to the ex-president, told This Day that the ailment is responsible for his inability to attend most public events and although nobody knows the real cause of the illness, facts emerged that it may have been age-related. Babangida, it was gathered, may also be suffering from a relapse of the radiculopathy disease which has troubled him since he was the head of the state. According to the source, the former Nigerian leader most times is unable to walk without a walking stick or the assistance of his security personnel and this became public last week when he attended the valedictory dinner for Justice Fati Lami Abubakar, the former Niger state chief judge, and was aided out of the venue before the end of the event. He has also cut down on receiving visitors at his home and often travels to Abuja where he receives medical attention. Culled

Welcome on board!!! Faith Irabor is just like your everyday girl next door with strong survival instincts. Am an International Journalist, Events planner and Blogger whose media journey dates back to June 2002 as a TV presenter with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) Ile-Ife Osun State while I was having my National Diploma in Mass Communication. I left NTA in 2005 to pursue my B.SC in Mass Communication at the Olabisi Onabanjo University OOU Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State and finished in 2008 before joining one of Nigeria's best investigative Tabloids (National Enquirer Magazine & www.enquirermag.blogspot.com). I am very privileged to be trained by one of the industry's bests, my boss and mentor Mr. Tunde Moshood Jr, the former Editor of the defunct Fame Magazine, Publisher of National Enquirer and president Miss Global Nigeria who taught me everything I know in Journalism especially the investigative aspect which is the fulfilment of being a member of the Fourth Estate of Realm (as we journalists are usually officially addressed). My desire to take my journalism practice beyond the Newspaper & Magazine came from the passion I have derived over the years from investigative journalism as Online Media is the best platform to tell a story or news the very minute it’s at your disposal without wasting time. I promise to serve you nothing but exclusive and interesting news, interviews, events, articles from around the world and please feel free to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org on spotted errors as well as ideas that would make me do better as there is no perfect being anywhere except God.
