Rochas Okorocha: How I felt when I saw Buhari

The governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha has disclosed how he felt when he first saw ailing Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari in London on Sunday.

The governor made the disclosure when he spoke on Channel TV last night, saying that he was shocked to see a healthy man that still had his good sense of humor.

According to Okorocha, there were speculations that President Buhari was so ill and was on life support prior to the visit, but that to his greatest shock he saw a man who was so healthy who is fit to return home any moment from now.

“To my greatest shock, when I arrived in London with the Party Chairman and the governors of Kano, Kaduna, Kogi, Nasarawa and the Minister of Transport, we saw a man that was full of humor as usual and we were wondering whether it is the same person that they are talking about.
“All I can say is that Mr. President is in good health, he is not on life support and he will soon be back. And he is not in the hospital.

“I was thinking I was going to see him in the hospital, but he is not even in the hospital. He was at home relaxing and having a good time.

“When I made inquiries as to why he is still waiting, why he is still not back home, all I got as an answer is that he is just taking some vitamins to increase his appetite to regain his lost weight.

“But I think the man is in good spirits and I think the prayers of Nigerians have worked to a great extent and President Buhari is coming back in full force to resume his work. What Nigerians should be talking about now is what should be his next line of action.”

“On when President Buhari will return back home, the governor said “The Buhari I saw two days ago will be back to Nigeria as soon as possible.

“I don’t think that he will stay longer than necessary, unless for some other reasons. I saw a man that was quite healthy, in high spirits and very sound – except for the fact that he has lost a bit of weight.”

6 Signs of a Failing Hard Drive

There are a lot of factors that can affect the lifespan of a hard drive; thankfully most hard drives give signs of impending failure before they eventually fail. Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency shares 6 signs of a failing hard drive to look out for.

Corrupted Files

If your files are frequently being corrupted, it’s a sign that your hard drive might be failing. Of course, corrupted files can also be caused by other factors like overclocking SATA bus, driver issues, viruses, sudden power failure etc., however if the incidence of file corruption is overly frequent, a failing hard drive is more likely the cause. It is advisable to immediately backup your data and diagnose the hard drive for problems.

Slow Response Time and Transfer Rates

Whenever a hard drive is failing, its performance typically reduces significantly causing slow response time and transfer rates. This reduced performance is so bad that it might take several minutes to send a small audio file, or it takes a ridiculous amount of time to open simple programs like Windows Explorer. Slow response time and transfer rates can also be caused by other factors like system load, fragmentation, infections etc., so it may or may not be indicative of hard drive failure. Nevertheless, if it persists it could lead to hard drive failure. It is therefore advisable to backup your data as a precaution.

Accumulating Bad Sectors

Hard drives typically store data in tiny clusters and whenever these clusters get corrupted or damaged that part of the hard disk is no longer functional and thus referred to as a bad sector. These bad sectors can cause serious damage to your data and when you run into them, and bad sectors alongside frequent freezing of your device is definitely a bad sign. It should be a strong reminder to backup your data as soon as possible.

Strange Noises and Extreme Heat

Mechanical hard drives tend to make noise while functioning because of several moving parts inside it. However, when your hard drive starts to make odd clicking and grinding noises, it’s mostly likely caused by physical damage or deterioration of the hard drive. It might be a damaged header, failed motor etc. Whatever it might be, these strange noises indicate that it is time to backup your data as soon as possible.


S.M.A.R.T is a Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology that helps to analyze current hard drive state and predict hard drive failures. Most modern hard drive support this technology, be sure your hard drive is one of them and try using this technology to predict possible hard drive failure especially when your hard drive starts acting abnormally.

Other Signs Include…

Some other possible signs of impending hard drive failure are: frequent but irregular crashes especially when booting up Windows; frequent and cryptic error messages when performing activities like moving files etc.; disappearing files and folders; disappearing data and disk errors; and scrambled and changed folder and file names.

Atiku will take over in 2019, Osinbajo will soon replace Buhari – Prophet Chukwudi

Founder of Kings of Kings Deliverance Ministry, Prophet Emmanuel Chukwudi has claimed that God revealed to him that the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo will soon be sworn-in as the substantive President of Nigeria.

Chukwudi, who made the disclosure while addressing journalists in Ulepa Ntezi, Ishielu local government area of Ebonyi State said Osinbajo can only last till 2019 as he would face serious battle from dark forces who will ensure he leaves office.

The prophet maintained that Osinbajo’s swearing-in will be soon.

He also claimed that former vice president, Atiku Abubakar has been anointed to take over from Osinbajo in 2019.

According to Chukwudi, “I saw Buhari saying that he is no more in charge. Then I saw Osinbajo being sworn in. But the opposition is just too much.

“He can only last till 2019. He should battle very well not to be removed from office before then. This is not the first time I am saying that Buhari will not pilot Nigeria into 2019, and this is not the first time I am being shown Atiku as the next president.

“It’s over three years now that Atiku was first reveled to me.

“Buhari has handed over power spiritually to Osinbajo. He cannot return to power, in case anyone is expecting him. So says the Lord, Onye Ruo Uka Ohu Nanya.”

Fani-Kayode says Femi Adesina is under Aso Rock curse

Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation, has said that the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina, is “now exhibiting symptoms of ‘the Villa curse’”.

Fani-Kayode was reacting to Adesina’s remarks explaining why a video of the President addressing Nigerians formally has not been recorded.

He wrote on his Twitter page on Wednesday: “Stop complaining about Buhari, nobody forced you to vote for him”- Femi Adesina.

“Femi is now exhibiting symptoms of ‘the Villa curse’.”

Adesina had said: “It is a matter of personal style, there is no style that you can call ‘the’ style. The style of our president is what you have seen on display and by now two years after he came, I am sure that we should understand him.

“We should know the kind of person he is, we should know how he prefers to do things and that is how the President is.

“That just tells you that that is the way our President is, we elected him willingly and we have seen that this is the way he is.”

Makarfi says it is stupid to think about 2019 presidency

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi has spoken about putting himself up as a candidate for the next general elections in 2019.

Makarfi, who defeated Senator Modu Sheriff at the Supreme Court in the party’s leadership tussle, said he was not allowing the ambition distract him at the moment.

In an interview with Daily Trust, he claimed that it was one of the things that derailed Sheriff.

“A party picks a candidate after you win nomination. Before you win nomination, you put up yourself.

“I am not thinking of that because it would be foolish of me to start thinking of that when you have a major responsibility on organisation of the party and putting it on the right course. That is one of the issues that helped in derailing Modu Sheriff, and I would be stupid to follow the same path.

“So I didn’t seek for this office, I was called upon to do a job and I am glad with how far we are going. I would be happier when we get there, conduct all-inclusive elections, conventions and all that, and I would take a break,” he said.
