Briefing the press on Friday in Abuja to herald a lineup of activities to celebrate her homecoming, Jackie B who revealed the massive support from her family especially her mother, insists that despite the ugly aspects of the show, it provided her with an opportunity to grow her brand of interior/fashion designing as well as event/wedding planning to a greater level.

She said: “My mum supported me 100 per cent because she knows me, believes in her daughter, she trusts me and is more confident in who I am so she had no doubt I would go in there and not disappoint her. She has been supportive of me and she knows what am capable of and not capable of.

“It was my choice to go into Big Brothers house and she supported my decision but she sent me in with a lot of rules and prayers like any mother would because she trusted me 100 per cent and am happy I didn’t disappoint her, am thankful or that. I don’t regret anything I did because I am sure I didn’t do anything wrong. I was 100 per cent myself, and everyone who knows me knew I was being myself.”

Jackie said her seven weeks stay in the House before the eviction was divinely destined; adding that although she has no regrets, they were no plans of going back to the show as a housemate.

“I do believe in destiny and I feel I was destined to be in Big Brothers house for seven weeks and I was very happy for the weeks I spent there. I was not by another body’s power or might, I won’t give it up for anything but I won’t go back to the Big Brothers house. I am moving unto bigger things.

“The show comes with a lot of negativity and its downsides but it also comes with a lot of opportunities which I have been fortunate to acquire to mingle and grow personally and financially. I am an interior designer and I have a fashion business and wedding planning I run and am looking at expanding all my businesses across the globe.”

On whom she would choose between fellow housemates White Money and Michael, she noted that “White Money and Michael are two different personalities and amazing men in their own rights. I wouldn’t pick one over the other but I have a very different connection with Michael.

“Big Brother is more of a social experiment that has to do with the psychology, that is why they choose different people with different personalities and experiment how they can live, grow and develop together. We were not acting a script, we were all very original in the house,” she added.

Lagos Govt Trying To Avoid Truth, Blames #EndSARS Report To Computer Error – Panel

The Lagos judicial panel on police brutality says the state government is trying to evade responsibility by citing computer errors in the #EndSARS report.

According to the panel’s report, protesters were killed at the Lekki tollgate on October 20, 2020 in what could be described in context as a “massacre”.

In a white paper on the report, the Lagos government accepted 11 out of the 32 recommendations of the panel, rejected one and accepted six with modifications.

The Lagos government also said the finding of the panel that nine persons died is “irreconcilable” with the testimony of John Obafunwa, a pathologist.

PANEL REACTS

Responding to the Lagos government’s white paper in a statement released by Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, the panel said the state could have reached out to members for clarifications where necessary.

“The chairperson, all panel members and indeed the secretariat of the Panel were all within the reach of the LASG for clarifications if there was sincerity, other than picking holes in order to evade responsibility on account of computer errors and tabular alignments of cut and paste,” the statement reads.

The panel also said the duplication of names on its list of casualties was as a result of a computer error, adding that they considered several dictionary definitions of the word ‘massacre’ before it was used.

“This was a misnomer from the spreadsheet that ought to have terminated at Page 297 but mistakenly overlapped to Page 298 with the same names and same numbers,” the panel said.

“It was the computer error of the secretariat of the panel which could have been corrected as the secretariat of the panel was domiciled in the ministry of justice at all times.

“In any event, the mere fact of repetition of same names on a table cannot without more, nullify the uncontroverted evidence of death.

“The panel considered several definitions of the word MASSACRE and adopted one of the dictionary meanings of MASSACRE as being ‘the act or instance of killing a number of usually helpless or unresisting human beings under circumstances of atrocity or cruelty’.

“​The Panel considered that firing live bullets at unarmed, peaceful and unresisting protesters which led to the death of some of them, was cruel and atrocious on the part of the military and the police. The White Paper ignored these explanations and findings by the Panel.”

Nigeria’s security challenges will soon end — Osinbajo

“A lot of the security challenges we experience in Nigeria today will be resolved in due course.

“This country will be stronger and greater, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo said in Abuja on Thursday.

He was responding to remarks made by members of the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo Dynamic Support Group, who visited him.

“We must never relent in ensuring that we keep to the ideals of the country and we don’t lose sight of what we are trying to achieve here.

“The president has always remained steadfast and focused in resolving the problems of the country beginning with security.

“He is a steady hand; he is unflappable, he is not panicky, he is focused and looking at the security issues every day, and trying to advance the best possible solutions,’’ Osinbajo said.

“People who suggest that the country breaks up, whatever may be the reason for their views, are certainly not correct and we must say so to them at every turn.

“The unity of this country is important for all of the different ethnicities, religions, everybody. Whatever the group or ideology, unity is important for every one of us.

“It is wrong for a country that is the largest economy in Africa and definitely going to be one of the largest economies in the world, to start thinking in terms of fragmenting itself.

“If you fragment, the problems are going to multiply, poverty will multiply,’’ the vice-president added.

Earlier, the National Coordinator of the visiting group, Usman Ibrahim, commended Osinbajo for his commitment to leadership and promotion of national unity.

Ibrahim said Osinbajo’s performance in office, his excellence, humility, loyalty, industry, professionalism and dedication to duty were enviable.

He pledged the loyalty and support of the group for the actualisation of the objectives of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

“We appreciate you for your sacrifices and commitment to the actualisation of the `Next Level’ agenda, especially your commitment towards improving the welfare of the downtrodden through the platforms of “Tradermoni’’ and “Marketmoni’’, programmes.
