Lionel Messi Arrives at Court to Face Tax Evasion Charges

Four-time FIFA footballer of the year Lionel Messi and his father Jorge arrived in a Spanish court this morning Friday September 27th to answer charges of alleged tax fraud. Messi and his father are being accused of hiding over £3.4 million by filing incomplete tax returns from 2006 to 2009.

The charges against father and son was lodged by a state prosecutor in June 2013 claiming that they tried to conceal earnings from Messi's image rights - charges they both deny.
"I never take care of that (tax) stuff myself and neither does my father," Messi said in July. "We have our lawyers and our wealth managers to take care of that and we trust them and they will sort this out. The truth is I don’t have a clue about all this and that is why we have people taking care of it."
Messi has already paid the Spanish authorities the unpaid tax he's owing plus interest (he paid £4.2m) but because tax fraud is a serious offense in Spain, he still has to make an appearance in court where the courts will determine whether the case is pursued any further.

“During the attack, a pastor and his two children were killed,” he said.
The church “and two other houses in the community were burnt by the gunmen before fleeing the scene of the incident,” the statement further said.

MUST READ: 9 Things You Do NOT Need to Be Happy

“You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of.  You will never truly live if you are forever looking for the meaning of life.”
―Albert Camus
Today, as I was walking to a coffee shop in downtown Austin, a school bus stopped in front of me and a little kid waved at me frantically through the bus window.  I laughed and waved back.  There was instantly a look of surprise and then extreme happiness on the kid’s face just because I waved back to him.  This reminded me of how, as children, we need very little to make us happy.
As adults we somehow grow into the belief that we need everything to be a certain way in order to find and appreciate moments of happiness.  But the truth is, to be happy we need much less than we think we need.  In fact, I believe one of the best feelings comes when you realize that you can be perfectly OK and happy without the things you once thought you needed.  And that’s precisely what this short article is about – the things you do NOT need to be happy...:

Governor Fashola apologizes to the Igbos over destitude deportation

Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola yesterday Thursday Sept. 26th apologized to the Igbos over the deportation of destitute from the state to Anambra State a few months back.

Governor Fashola tendered his apology at a ceremony to mark the Silver Jubilee anniversary of Aka Ikenga, an Igbo social-cultural group in Lagos. He said:
“The truth is that I do not have a problem with the Igbos, they know that because the largest herd of cattle I received during my father’s burial came from the Ndigbo. Those people who came under their many colours are not people I have a problem with, they are my kindred and my people. Also, there were people who did not clearly understand me and they have misunderstood words said or misrepresented actions taken in the way that it has pleased them to do so. To those people, I owe an explanation, not a defence of what has happened and that is partly why I am here.

Spotted: Drake Wears Jaden Smith's Face on His Shirt

There were plenty of outrageous outfits on celebs at the iHeartRadio Music Festival this weekend, but forget Miley's cheeky ensemble and Ke$ha's lack of pants. The outfit that really got people talking was Drake's shirt, which was emblazoned with a picture of Jaden Smith.

And it wasn't just any picture of the young Smith. It was the shot that went viral from last month's MTV VMAs, where it looks like Will's son is either worshiping Drake or totally appalled.

Anyway, the shirt was designed by Drake's line, October's Very Own. Unfortunately, it isn't for sale on the OVO website just yet. Maybe soon?

For the record, Jaden has yet to comment on his silkscreened face. So far.

Jonathan ineligible to run in 2015 – New PDP

The leadership of the New Peoples Democratic Party has  said that  President Goodluck Jonathan is not qualified to seek reelection in 2015.
The reasons why he cannot contest, according to the group, are: The 1999 Constitution, an agreement the President  entered into and his open statement in Turkey in 2011.
The President had  on Monday said that the 1999  Constitution allowed  him to be in  office for a maximum of eight years.

He had said, “Already, we have a constitution that makes provision for maximum of eight years for anyone who wants to become a President or a governor.

“There is no President or governor that all citizens vote for but at the end of the election, if somebody emerges, you must allow the person to work.

“If you love your country, you would want your country to work. That does not mean that you will not vote against the person if you don’t like the way he works, but you must allow him to work.”

But the New PDP, in  a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Chukwuemeka Eze,  warned  that Jonathan’s second term ambition was not in the best interest of the country.
