Police Arrest Student For Studying Too Much At School

A British school called the police to remove a student who is so obsessed with studying and refused to leave the library.

The 18-year-old student Jamie Gagliardi was expelled from Ifield Community College in southern England, after refusing to leave the library.

The school accused Gagliardi, who is expected to be a student of being “obsessed” with learning after school and said they called police because the student was causing a “nuisance.”

Gagliardi, who was forced to call his mother to pick him up, said, “I have been punished for wanting to do well. I am a hardworking and a dedicated student, and this could have such an impact on my future.”

The student went to the library despite being banned from the premises for the day as punishment for disrupting the school principal during a meeting to request special meetings.

Marilyn Evans, director of school administration, said: “He became loud and angry that he could not study after school.”

Gagliardi is described as the “best student”, who wants to do well on tests, but had been “causing a nuisance and a disturbance on the property.” The school authorities added that “He is obsessed with making the revision after school.”

A police spokesman confirmed that officers were called to the school to remove a “disruptive” student who refused to leave the premises, but said Gagliardi will not face charges.

Federal Government Suspends Importation of Private Jets

The Ministry of Aviation has announced a suspension of the importation of private jets into the country pending the renewal of the policy on private jets. This suspension affects private airplanes, helicopters and other lighter aircraft.
The suspension would continue until the formulation of a new policy on importation of private jets and helicopters.
The Special Assistant (Media) to the Minister of Aviation, Joe Obi, who confirmed the development told Punch that the suspension did not affect the importation of commercial and passenger jets being used by domestic airlines.
The domestic airlines are free to bring in their normal passenger planes. But the suspension only affects private jets. The government is trying to work on a new policy for the private jet. You will agree with me that the current policy on private jets is old, and there is a need to renew it.  Pending that renewal, all applications for importation for now will have to hold on.”
When asked if there was a time frame for the lifting of the suspension, Obi said, 
There is no definite time for now. It depends on when the new policy is completed. Government is working on the policy. When it is completed, every body will be informed.”

Same-Sex Marriage is Evil- Pastor Adeboye

“Same-sex marriage is an anathema to the will of God for human beings to be fruitful, replenish and multiply on earth. Anything contrary to that is evil.

 “How can a man who marries a fellow man produce a child and how can a woman who marries a fellow woman produce a child?

House of Reps Move to Ban Sale of Energy Drinks in Nigeria

Energy drinks have often been described as drinks that have potentially dangerous health consequences, the dangers lying in the high levels of caffeine contained in them.
For this and other reasons, the House of Representatives on Tuesday moved to ban the importation and sale of caffeinated drinks, popularly known as ‘energy drinks’, in the country.
Following a motion sponsored by a member, Yacoob Bush-Alebiosu, the house directed its Joint Committee on Health/Commerce to investigate the importation and distribution of the drinks.

According to Punch, Bush-Alebiosu listed Germany, Norway, France and Denmark among some of the countries that had banned the sale of the drinks in their jurisdiction “as a result of health risks caused by the consumption of energy drinks, including reported cases of deaths.”
He said that research conducted by the Cardiovascular Research Centre at the Royal Adeliade Hospital and Adeliade University in Southern Australia reveals a link between students consuming a particular brand of energy drink and the unstable state of their hearts.

Folorunsho Alakija Displaced As Richest Black Woman By Isabel Santos

Earlier this morning, Forbes gathered a recent report on a woman (Isabel dos Santos) who is now believed to be the richest black woman in the world, displacing the Nigerian business mogul, Folorunsho Alakija that got the position few months ago from Oprah Winfrey.
Over the past few years Isabel dos Santos, the oldest daughter of Angolan President Jose Eduardo Dos Santos, has been buying more shares of publicly traded companies in Portugal, including shares in a bank and a cable TV company. Those stakes, combined with assets Isabel dos Santos owns in at least one bank in Angola, have pushed her net worth over the $1 billion mark, according to research by FORBES, making the 40-year-old Africa’s first woman billionaire.
