Gambia to shift to local language: President

Gambia President Yahya Jammeh says he wants to implement new policy that would change the country’s language from English to a local language.

“We no longer subscribe to the belief that for you to be a government you should speak English language. We should speak our language,” President Jammeh said Friday.

The statement comes after the Gambian government announced its withdrawal from the Commonwealth, describing the association of 54 countries as a “neo-colonial institution” in which the West African country would never join.

Jammeh also recently criticized the United Kingdom for having no “moral platform” to talk about human rights.

    “What brought the British to the Gambia in the first place - which was bigger than it is now —was trade in ivory because the Gambia had a lot of elephants,” he said, adding, “They wiped out all the elephants and ended up selling Africans.”

In 1965, Gambia joined the Commonwealth, the 54-member grouping made up largely of former British colonies.

According to the London Declaration of 1949, the British Queen acts as the symbolic head of the Commonwealth.

Gambia, a country in West Africa, is a tiny sliver of land wedged into Senegal.


Photo: Biola Ige Refuses To Make Comment On Nudity Saga

A particular picture of two Nollywood newbies has been circulating online since. And they named the girl in the act Biola Ige, I googled her, and I don’t think they are the same person, but then….So a journalist got in touch with her this morning and asked what she has got to say about her semi-nude picture circulating online, and Biola gave a shocking reply. Her words;

'Thanks for calling but at this period. I shall not be talking but I appreciate the fact that you called and I promise that soon when I have something to say I will call you'.

Really? Is she enjoying this ‘fame’? What’s there in saying it was leaked and I feel bad, or it’s not my pic or it was simply photoshopped?

Serie A giants Inter and AC Milan battle over Mikel Obi

Super Eagles midfielder Mikel Obi is at the centre of a bidding war between two Serie A giants Inter Milan and AC Milan, according to reports.

Inter have been joined by city neighbours AC Milan in the race to sign the out-of-favour Chelsea star, [football] direct news claims.

The Nigerian midfielder holds a contract with the English side until 2017 but reports of a summer exit have loomed large after he dropped down the pecking order under Jose Mourinho.

Mikel joined Chelsea in 2006 and has played an important part in the club’s success over the years, but a planned summer overhaul is likely to see Mikel and others move out of Stamford Bridge.

[FDN] understand that AC Milan are keen to add the Nigerian midfielder in a double pivot alongside another former Blue – Michael Essien.

However, they will face competition from city rivals Inter Milan who are also keen.

More friendly matches for Super Eagles

Nigeria may get more friendly matches added to their build-up to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil according to the Nigeria Football Federation.

The Super Eagles are already scheduled to face Scotland, Greece and USA leading up to June’s World Cup.

The General Secretary of the NFF, Musa Amadu, told media yesterday that a fourth friendly could be squeezed into the Super Eagles’ schedule if coach Stephen Keshi wanted it.

“We’re putting all measures in place to ensure that the team is properly prepared for the World Cup and that is why we have lined up friendlies up until June 7.

“And if the coach accepts, we could squeeze in one more game before our first game at the World Cup,” said Amadu.

Group F consists of Nigeria, Iran, Argentina and Bosnia-Herzegovina with the Super Eagles’ big clash against Argentina happening on June 24.

Nigeria face Iran in their opening fixture of the world showpiece on June 16 and a win will be settle the team down well in their pursuit of World Cup glory.

“It is very important that the Super Eagles win their first group game against Iran. This would go a long way to determine how far the team would go at the World Cup,” Amadu added.

11 Ways Mainstream Porn Misleads Women About Sex

Anyone who has watched even a few minutes of porn may end up with some very particular ideas about what real-world sex entails.

Porn -- at least, the kind where super-toned, tanned, hairless women are penetrated in a variety of acrobatic positions by equally toned, tanned men -- is full of myths about sex. Redditor black_brotha decided to ask women on the site what they "learned" from porn that turned out to be completely untrue in the real world.

Here are 11 of the most worrying un-truths women said porn taught them:

1. That their bodies were abnormal: "I was 100% convinced that I needed labiaplasty and was really ashamed to be naked in front of [a] guy because I thought he would think I was a freak."

2. That all sex focuses on the guy's pleasure: "I thought having sex with a man meant having to pretend I enjoyed it even if I wasn't, that it didn't matter if I had an orgasm, and that it was normal for a guy not to give a shit about my pleasure."

3. That "sexy" is purely physical, and incredibly specific:

    I felt like I had to fit into a box I could never fit in. It made me feel dysphoric about not just my body, but who I was. I'm a clumsy, boyish, awkward female, that couldn't do an attractive striptease to save their life AKA the antithesis of your typical "sexy female"... There is more than just one kind of sexy and its all subjective. I've realized that Im sexy in my own way and I'm much happier now.

4. That men don't like women with hair "down there": "I thought men would expect completely hairless women and they would be repulsed by me."

5. That orgasms are almost effortless: "I thought orgasms were much easier to achieve than they actually are. As a result I thought something was wrong with me for a long time. I just assumed that PIV=almost instant orgasm. I was so disappointed to find that wasn't the case."

6. That men only find certain bodies (white, toned and smooth-skinned) attractive: "It did make me think that only women with perfect bodies ever had sex."

7. That all penises are circumcised and eight inches long: "I didn't know uncircumcised penises existed, because all the porn I'd seen prior had circumcised male performers."

8. That insanely complex sexual positions feel good for everyone:

    Those positions? Yeah, most of them don't feel good.I know everyone's different, but it is VERY DIFFICULT, bordering on impossible to have an orgasm with that much distance between the partners! Besides, one of the best things about sex is the closeness of skin-to-skin contact.

9. That you had to do everything women in porn videos did in order for your partner to enjoy themself: "It didn't occur to me until like age 27 that I didn't have to let a guy come on my face if I didn't want to. Or I didn't have to swallow. Or that it was okay to not moan if I didn't feel like moaning."

10. That men are always ready and willing: "I thought that all men liked being aggressive and dominant, like in porn, and that if they were under 50, they were always going to be able to get hard and orgasm."

11. That sex between two women is just something that happens between two straight ladies out of boredom: "I thought lesbian sex involved long fingernails, looking bored/disgusted, and waiting for a man to show up."
