The movie was released in 1975 and when the news broke out in 2006, Jackie Chan had no choice but to come out and openly accept the fact that he starred in the movie.

This were his exact words;

Sylvester Stallone up

Sylvester Stallone is inarguably one the greatest action film of our generation. He is currently worth 400 million dollars, but before he made so much money he was very broke. He even starred in a movie titled 'The Party at Kitty and Stud's.'

Sylvester Stallone openly said that he was so broke that he didn't have a place to stay or sleep. When he saw the role, he had no choice but to take it. He said either that or stealing and he rather did that. He was paid 200 dollars for two days. This were his exact words

Luckily for Sylvester Stallone, his big break came 6 years later after he starred as Rocky in the Rocky Franchise and became an international sensation. The movie won two Oscars and catapulted Stallone into the international scene.

Don’t reopen varsities now, Chancellor tells FG

The Chancellor and founder of Oduduwa University, Ipetumodu, Ile Ife, Dr Abdulrahman Adedoyin, has urged the Federal Government not to reopen universities and other schools, including that of students, who are about to sit for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination if the figures of new cases of COVID-19 being released daily are correct. School Resumption

Adedoyin, whose position is different from many other founders of private varsities, said this in an interview with our correspondent in Ibadan on Monday.

The founder of Oduduwa University said it was not safe to ask students to return to schools amidst the rising cases of coronavirus being recorded all over the country.

He, however, said schools, markets, churches, mosques and other places should be reopened if the government had realised and accepted that the people would have to live with the virus for a long time.

Adedoyin also called for the dissolution of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 headed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, because despite the huge amount of money the committee  claimed to spend every day, the cases had continued to soar.

He said, “ As far as I am concerned, It is better to be alive than to die. If the Federal Government is right with the figures of rising cases of coronavirus everyday, schools should not resume at all.” School Resumption
WAEC Exams Will Start By August 17, Schools To Reopen By August 4 – FG
The Federal Government on Monday asked schools in the country to reopen for graduating pupils effective August 4.

It also announced that this year’s West African Senior School Certificate Examination would commence on August 17. This was contained in a statement signed by the Director, Press and Public Relations, Federal Ministry of Education, Ben Goong.

In the statement titled, ‘Exit Classes To Reopen August 4th’, the ministry said the agreed dates were part of the resolution reached after a consultative meeting with the education commissioners of the 36 states of the federation and other stakeholders.
Imsugist had earlier reported that the FG initially announced that the 2020 WASSCE would start on August 4 through September 5 but later cancelled the planned reopening of schools for graduating pupils citing health concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic which had necessitated the closure of schools across the country since March. However, the statement signed by Goong on Monday read, “Secondary schools in the country are to reopen from the 4th of August 2020 for exit classes only. “Students will have two weeks with which to prepare for the West African Examinations due to start on the 17th of August 2020. “These were the unanimous decisions reached today at a virtual consultative meeting between the Federal Ministry of Education, Honourable Commissioners of Education of the 36 states, the Nigerian Union of Teachers, the proprietors of private schools and the Chief Executives of examination bodies. “It was agreed that the exit classes should resume immediately after the Sallah break, from the 4th of August 2020, to enable them to prepare for the WAEC examinations scheduled to commence from the 17th of August 2020. “The meeting also resolved that a passionate appeal be made to the Federal Government through the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 and public-spirited Nigerians for assistance to schools across the country to enable them fast-track the preparation for safe reopening, as agreed. “Another meeting is to be convened tomorrow between the Federal Ministry of Education and the Chief Executives of examination bodies namely, NECO, NABTEB and NBAIS to harmonise their examination dates, which will be conveyed to stakeholders expeditiously by the Federal Ministry of Education.”

Joy Nunieh: I Slapped Akpabio For Sexually Harassing Me

Joy Nunieh, former acting managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), says she slappped Godswill Akpabio, minister of Niger Delta affairs, for sexually harassing her.

Speaking on Monday, during an interview on Arise TV, Nunieh said the incident happened at the minister’s guest house in Abuja.

She said her reaction to the alleged harassment proved her intolerance for “nonsense” as a woman from Rivers state.

“Why did he not tell Nigerians that I slapped him in his guest house at Apo? I am the only woman that slapped Akpabio. He thought he could come up on me. He tried to harass me sexually,” she said.

“I slapped him. He tried to come on me. I am an Ogoni woman and nobody jokes with us. I showed Akpabio that Rivers women do not tolerate nonsense.”

The former NDDC MD also accused Akpabio of trying to inflate the NDDC budget.

She said the minister directed her to include some projects from the refugee commission in the budget of the NDDC.

“Akpabio wrote me to put a list of projects from the refugee commission in the budget of NDDC. Refugee commission is another federal government commission for IDPs,” she said.

“How do you tell me to put some of their projects in the NDDC budget when we have so many things to do in the Niger Delta? How do you explain that?”

Nunieh and Akpabio have made allegations against each other following the activities of the senate ad hoc panel investigating the alleged mismanagement of N40 billion by the interim management committee (IMC) of the NDDC.

Akpabio had told the panel that he knew nothing about the expenditure of the NDDC under Nunieh because she refused to give him briefings.

But Nunieh alleged that the minister engineered her removal for failing to follow his orders.

“When we first came to the NDDC, on the day of going for the inauguration, he told me in the car that Madam MD, If you don’t do what I say, the same pen which I use to sign your letter, it will be the same pen I will use to remove you,” she had said.

Nunieh had also alleged that Akpabio asked her to change the dollars in the NDDC account; sack the head of the legal team who is from the north; remove all directors who refused to follow his instructions and also to implicate Peter Nwaoboshi, chairman of the senate committee on NDDC.

I Should Sue Jude Okoye, If He Said I Owe Him - Cynthia Morgan Fires Back
Cynthia Morgan has fired back at her former label boss Jude Okoye and her former manager, Joy Tongo over their rebuttal to her disclosure days ago.

Speaking in another Instalive video session with former Miss Globe Nigeria Cassandra, the dancehall singer averred that she never said Jude Okoye took away her Instagram account.

Cynthia Morgan who insisted that the music executive took over her VEVO account, said she should be suing him. She stated that if Jude Okoye is saying he took over the account because she owes him money, then he didn't do his job well because she was a big brand while still with Northside Entertainment. The singer further recalled how they turned down a gig because those in charge of the show only wanted to pay N3.5m while they wanted N4m.

She went on to reveal that she was not happy in the first three years of her contract, as she had more issues with Joy than with Jude.

El-Rufai Threatens To Prosecute Parents Who Enroll Children Into Almajirai
Governor Nasir El-Rufa'i of Kaduna State has warned that parents who enroll their children into the Almajirai education system stand the risk of prosecution and up to two years jail.

El-Rufa'i stated this in Kaduna yesterday when he visited some 200 Almajiri children repatriated from Nasarawa State and undergoing rehabilitation and optical screening at Government College, Kurmin Mashi, Kaduna.

The governor also said that any Islamic cleric who enrolls any child into the Almajiri system would also be prosecuted and jailed as well as fined N100,000 or N200,000 per child.

He said that all the Almajiri pupils repatriated from other states of the country were indigenes of the state, adding that the government would give them all the opportunity they deserved to grow and develop.

El-Rufai expressed satisfaction with the ongoing transformation of the Almajiri pupils from hopelessness to hope and confidence.

According to him, the state has a responsibility to do whatever it can to give them hope and a better future.

"We will, therefore, continue to take delivery of every Almajiri pupil indigenous to Kaduna state for rehabilitation, treatment and enrollment into formal school nearest to where their parents live.

"We will continue to do this until we clear Kaduna state of the menace of Almajiri system, which is not education but the abuse of the privilege and future of a child.

"Our ultimate goal is for them to acquire formal education without depriving them of the opportunity to acquire Quranic education.

"They will continue their Quranic education but under the care of their parents and not under someone who does not know them or paid to look after them."

He explained that the Ministry of Human Services and Social Development (MHSSD), along with UNICEF would closely monitor them and ensure that no child would leave his locality until he finished primary and junior secondary school.

The governor stressed that every child in Kaduna state must get 12-year free and compulsory primary and secondary school education.

"Those that cannot proceed to senior secondary school will have the opportunity to go to vocational school, also free.

"As such, no parent has any excuse for his child not to go to school," El-Rufa'i said.

He thanked MHSSD and other state agencies for the commitment and passion for the welfare of the children.

He equally thanked AMA foundation and other NGOs and civil societies for supporting the government to provide the Almajiri pupils with the needed medical care, food, and clothing, among others.

The governor particularly appreciated UNICEF for supporting the state government in ensuring that all the repatriated children were well documented.

El-Rufai said that the care and support provided had restored the sense of dignity of the children.
