Politics: Guy Verhofstadt says David Davis' 'unhelpful' Brexit deal claim has undermined trust

Guy Verhofstadt

Brexit Secretary David claimed on Sunday that the deal agreed last week was a "statement of intent" and not legally binding.

  • Guy Verhofstaft says David Davis claim that Brexit deal isn't legally binding "undermines trust" between Britain and EU.
  • The EU Parliament's chief Brexit coordinator wants the agreement to be amended following Davis' remarks.
  • Brexit Secretary Davis claimed on Sunday that the Brexit deal agreed last week was a "statement of intent" and not legally enforceable.
  • Davis agrees to work with Verhofstadt to have agreement enshrined in legal text.


LONDON — The EU Parliament's chief Brexit negotiator has accused David Davis of being "unhelpful" and undermining trust between the two sides after the Brexit Secretary claimed the deal agreed last week wasn't legally binding.

Guy Verhofstadt tweeted on Tuesday that the EU Parliament will insist the text of the deal be amended to reflect the EU's position that the agreement on the first phase of Brexit talks is legally enforceable.

Theresa May held overnight talks with the EU, the Irish government and DUP last week to reach an agreement on the issues of citizens' rights, Britain's financial settlement, and the Irish border.

Verhofstadt, a prominent EU Parliamentarian, said today the agreement should be "translated into legal text ASAP."

Davis announced on Tuesday afternoon that he has agreed to work together with the EU Parliamentarian to get last week's agreement enshrined in legal text.

Davis told the BBC's Andrew Marr on Sunday that the deal reached by British and EU negotiators last week was merely a "statement of intent" and could be scrapped if the EU doesn't offer Britain satisfactory future trading terms.

He denied suggesting that the deal was not legally binding on Monday morning, telling LBC: "They [the media] completely twisted my words, I am afraid."

However, his claim was picked up by Verhofstadt, who has tabled an amendment to the wording of the agreement which the EU27 will agree this week.

The Irish government warned the UK government that it would be prepared to veto further progress in Brexit talks if the agreement reached on avoiding a hard border was not treated as legally binding.

A spokesperson for the Irish government added: "Both Ireland and the EU will be holding the UK to the phase one agreement."

The Irish government’s chief whip, John McHugh, told the country’s RTE broadcaster that the UK government's refusal to accept the phase one agreement as binding was "bizarre" and will not be accepted by the EU27.

"We will as a government, a sovereign government in Ireland, be holding the United Kingdom to account, as will the European Union," McHugh said, responding to Davis' remarks.

"My question to anybody within the British government would be: why would there be an agreement, a set of principled agreements, in order to get to phase two, if they weren’t going to be held up? That just sounds bizarre to me. This, as far as we’re concerned, is a binding agreement, an agreement in principle."

Pulse List 2017: 7 best Nigerian album covers of year

Photographic portraits, paintings, collages -- all these and more are on Pulse’s best album covers of 2017.

Photographic portraits, paintings, collages -- all these and more are on Pulse’s best album covers of 2017.

It isn’t just about the music anymore.

While the sounds is still the major essential element of an album, but you can’t deny the role of album covers in ensuring that you make your decision to either buy or ignore a body of work.

While the cover art of albums have changed over the years with technology and improvement in our understanding of colours and how it affects art, the basics of it still means that people should relate a striking and symbolic album art to the music on display.

Photographic portraits, paintings, collages -- all these and more are on Pulse’s best album covers of 2017.

Ajebutter22 – “What Happens In Lagos”
 

Ajebutter22’s conceptual album art takes the win here for its descriptive symbolism of the project. The art shows a young Lagos boy in all his stages of life as he navigates the city in the hope of attaining success.

Olamide – “Lagos Nawa”

 

Baddo made an album for the masses of Lagos, aptly tagging it the ‘Wobe’ album. What else defines the Lagos populace better than it’s most famous means of transport – the Danfo buses. Olamide’s album art is the characteristic official colour of the mainland Danfo buses.

D’banj : “King Don Come”

 

An album about his legacy, D’banj went for symbolism on this one. Created by Nduka Abii, popularly known as Duks Arts, the project draws inspiration from the HBO hit TV series “Game Of Thrones.” The album art which was shared by the singer via social media showed the Nigerian superstar depicted as a medieval king. D’banj is sitting on a throne placed against the backdrop of a raging battle. He is dressed in kingly robes and jewelry, with animal fur draping his shoulder, and his famous DB gold chain on his neck.

Simi – “Simisola”

 

Simi is the girl next door. From her branding to everything else, she’s the relatable star, who is unashamed in her skin. Her debut album “Simisola” is all about her person, and at the core of that is that persona. She captures that essence in the music, and the album art.

BOJ – “Magic”

 

Stare deep enough at BOJ’s cover art for “Magic,” and things begin to get psychedelic. From descriptions of his art, to photo representations of his guests, the art, with its ominous design throws up a million possibilities, hinting at the very title of the project – Magic.

Jesse Jagz – “Odyssey”

 

Jesse Jagz named his album ‘Odysseus’, which simply means ‘journey’. To sell that record, he dug deep into his archives, to a historic photo of his origins. The little black girl in the middle is Jesse and M.I Abaga’s mother in 1975. It was taken at Baissa, Taraba State, where she grew up with the Boer family, who were Christian missionaries. It was the origin of his story, this journey that has led him to music.

Bemyoda – “Stark”

 

Bemyoda’s album art for stark hits a part of you that you can’t describe. That monochrome photo of the kid, pulls at your heart strings. In a way that feeling is stark, and it connects with exactly what the music is about: a record about the human experience and all the iterations of living in a conscious mind.

Politics: Trump says Democrats are promoting 'fabricated' sexual-abuse stories about him because the Russia probe has stalled

trump florida rally

President Donald Trump tweeted the morning after NBC's Megyn Kelly interviewed three women who had accused Trump of acting inappropriately toward them.

  • President Donald Trump on Tuesday dismissed claims of sexual abuse against him as "FAKE NEWS."
  • He said Democrats were seizing on them as a way to make up for a lack of findings in the Russia investigation.
  • There are indications, however, that the Russia investigation will produce results in the near future.


President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday morning that Democrats had turned to promoting "false" and "fabricated" stories against him because the investigation into Russian election meddling had stalled.

"Despite thousands of hours wasted and many millions of dollars spent, the Democrats have been unable to show any collusion with Russia - so now they are moving on to the false accusations and fabricated stories of women who I don't know and/or have never met. FAKE NEWS!" Trump tweeted.

Allegations of sexual harassment against Trump were renewed Monday morning following a segment on NBC's "Megyn Kelly Today" in which Kelly interviewed three women who had accused Trump of acting inappropriately toward them.

Trump has categorically denied the accusations, which were in focus at Monday afternoon's White House press briefing.

The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said that the allegations had been public before the election and that "the people of this country had a decisive election supported President Trump, and we feel like these allegations have been answered through that process."

But while the special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Trump's ties to Russia during last year's presidential campaign is ongoing, several recent developments indicate its pace is only accelerating.

Indictments in October yielded a guilty plea from George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign adviser who admitted to making false statements to the FBI.

Both Papadopoulos and the former national security adviser Mike Flynn appear to be cooperating with Mueller's investigation, which may indicate they're helping to provide information on officials higher up in Trump's political organization.

At the same time, top Democratic senators have called on Trump to resign because of the allegations made against him by 19 women; multiple lawmakers have stepped down recently over accusations of sexual misconduct.

With Trump campaigning for Roy Moore, the Republican US Senate candidate in Alabama who has been accused of sexual misconduct, Democrats may seek to make the issues of sexual harassment and the Russia investigation key pillars of their 2018 campaign, in which they will seek to win back the House and the Senate.

Arsenal Haven’t Offered Mesut Ozil Final Contract – Arsene Wenger

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has refuted reports that Mesut Ozil has been given a final ‘take-it-or-leave-it’ contract offer.

Reports in the national press claim the Gunners have made their last attempt to tie down the German star, whose current deal expires at the end of the season.

But, asked today if negotiations were at a ‘take it or leave it’ stage, Wenger replied: “No. Negotiations are always going on with everybody.

“I said that many times [that I want Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil to stay] and that’s all we can say. Is it two years to go? One year to go? Three months to go? The door is always open and for the rest I cannot tell you much more.”

Politics: Over 1 million children and pregnant women are on the brink of losing health insurance — and Congress hasn't done anything about it

President Donald Trump greets children in Houston after Hurricane Harvey ravaged the city earlier this year.

If Congress doesn't reauthorize funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), at least 1.2 million children could lose their healthcare.

  • If Congress doesn't reauthorize funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), at least 1.2 million children could lose healthcare coverage.
  • A handful of states are expected to run out of money by early next year.
  • Medical officials in those states are beginning to send termination notices to families as they prepare for the worst.
  • Even if Congress does restore CHIP money, the delay in funding will have already cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel brought his newborn son on stage Monday night to make an emotional plea for Congress to restore funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which has provided healthcare to millions of Americans and helped to drastically reduce the uninsured rate of children since its implementation in 1997.

"Now CHIP — [it] has become a bargaining chip," Kimmel said, cradling his son Billy, who received life-saving open heart surgery just hours after birth earlier this year. "It's on the back burner while they work out the new tax plans. Parents of children with cancer, diabetes and heart problems are about to get letters saying their coverage could be cut off next month. Merry Christmas, right?"

Kimmel's criticism comes as states continue to warn that for the first time in the history of CHIP, they may run out of funding.

A lack of funding could result in 1.2 million children losing coverage and becoming uninsured, according to an analysis by the Urban Institute.

"These are families making $8, $10, or $12 an hour that don't have insurance. And they're going to get letters saying 'your insurance is canceled,'" Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown said during a debate on the Senate floor November 30. "How can we let that happen?"

The reauthorization deadline for CHIP passed over two months ago without Congress agreeing to an extension, making it the longest lapse in funding since the program was first introduced.

"The politics are ugly. This should not be a Republican or Democratic issue," Colorado Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne told Business Insider. "There's never been any talk of it not making sense."

"I feel like there's a little hostage taking with kids and pregnant women in the middle," she added.

The only other time Congress failed to reauthorize it was in 2007, when then-President George W. Bush vetoed reauthorization because he believed the Democrats' proposal to spend billions more on the program would encourage families to leave the private insurance market. After just five days, lawmakers compromised and funding was quickly reissued.

Today's gap in funding has forced states around the country to rely on leftover funds and emergency government grants to maintain coverage for the millions of people who might otherwise be uninsured. But those temporary funds are quickly disappearing.

"We're concerned about the cost to the people and the magnitude of the anxiety it is producing," Lynne said. "Imagine if you're a pregnant woman and you're going to lose your insurance?"

CHIP proponents are holding out hope that something can be done by Christmas. Theoretically, Congress could address the problem by lumping money for CHIP in with an overall funding measure that must be in place by December 22 to avoid a government shutdown.

Such a move would be the quickest way to end concerns families may have about the future of their coverage, says Tricia Brooks, a healthcare policy expert and former CHIP director for New Hampshire.

"We are guardedly hopeful because unlike all of the other health policy initiatives Congress has tackled this year, CHIP actually has bipartisan agreement in the House and Senate," Brooks told Business Insider.

"The fact that states had leftover funds and that there was emergency money distributed to states gave Congress the feeling that were wasn't as much urgency. But that cushion is getting extremely thin. Congress needs to act," she added.

'We don't have any money anymore'

CHIP itself is not controversial. It has wide bipartisan support as Brooks says. But exactly how the annual $15.6 billion program should be paid for is the issue under dispute. Republicans have proposed cutting back the Affordable Care Act to pay for CHIP while Democrats have proposed tying the program's reauthorization in with measures to stabilize Obamacare.

"We're going to do CHIP. There's no doubt about it in my mind, " said Sen. Orin Hatch of Utah, who helped craft the program with Sen. Ed Kennedy of Massachusetts in the 1990s. "But the reason CHIP is having trouble is because we don't have any money anymore."

CHIP currently provides health insurance for roughly 9 million children nationwide who come from families with incomes just above Medicaid eligibility levels.

The program also includes coverage for more than 327,000 pregnant women through the "unborn child option." Technically, these recipients are classified as children even though the women are the ones who are actually being treated.

How states can respond to a loss of federal funds depends on how they implemented CHIP in the first place.

For states that used the money to expand Medicaid to insure more children, they will still have to cover those recipients, albeit with some other source of funding, even if the government no longer helps.

For states that created separate CHIP programs, those recipients are likely to completely lose coverage, or at best, receive more expensive coverage through employer-sponsored or marketplace exchange alternatives if their families can afford those options.

Some states have a combination of CHIP-funded Medicaid expansion and separate CHIP programs, complicating the situation.

States plan emergency measures

A handful of states are on the brink of running out of money, some as soon as next month.

Carrie Williams, a spokesperson for Texas' Health and Human Services Commission, told Business Insider that without Congressional action, the Lone Star State will be forced to end CHIP coverage by February 1 for more than 450,000 children.

Under state law, HHSC must notify families that their plans are being canceled at least 30 days before termination. In the meantime, HHSC has requested an additional $90 million from the government's Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which administers CHIP.

Texas' situation is especially dire because of the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey. After the disaster struck, the government waived co-pays and enrollment fees for CHIP recipients. That meant the state would be collecting less money, which is why they're relying on the federal government for an additional grant.

"Based on our conversations with CMS this week, we are confident that a redistribution of funds will happen, which will allow the program to continue through February for Texas," Williams said.

Texas has the most CHIP recipients in the country after California, but 16 other states could run out of money by February.

West Virginia's Children's Health Insurance Board has gone so far as to already approve a plan to close its program — which currently covers 21, 321 children — by February 28. The state's Department of Health and Human Resources plans to start sending termination notices to families by early January, according to communications director Allison Adler.

'We've never had to do this before'

The longer Congress delays funding, the more states must prepare contingency plans in the event that money is not restored.

But it's hard for medical officials to gauge exactly when they should take action — such as sending out notice letters to families and doubling up on call center staffing for the inevitable barrage of inquiries — since they are reliant on Congress to make the next move.

"They [states] are trying to hold off on taking action as long as possible because they don't want to cause concern among families," Samantha Artigo, an analyst at the Kaiser Family Foundation, told Business Insider. "But as we get farther along, they are really going to be bumping up against difficult deadlines where they will need to begin taking action. It cannot be done overnight."

Medical officials in Colorado, which is preparing to run out of money by January 31, have already sent notice letters to the families of the roughly 75,000 children and 800 pregnant women who might lose coverage.

Florida has enough funding to last through January. The healthcare of 198,605 children is on the line in that state, according to Shelisha Coleman, a spokesperson for Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration.

On December 1, Nevada received a nearly $5.6 million grant to provide coverage through this month and into January. Utah has also warned recipients that it will exhaust funds by the end of January.

Officials in Connecticut and Virginia said they are planning to send out letters by mid-December.

"We've never had to do this before," Linda Nablo, an official with Virginia's Department of Medical Assistant Services, told Kaiser Health News. "How do you write the very best letter saying, 'Your child might lose coverage, but it's not certain yet. But in the meantime, these are some things you need to think about'?"

Families are preparing, too.

Myra Gregory is the mother of 11-year-old Roland, who has a rare form of lung cancer. Last month, Gregory wrote an op-ed in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch pleading Congress to get its act together.

"If Congress forces Missouri to drop Roland's coverage, our family will be in an impossible situation. I don't have the savings to pay for Roland's care out of pocket," Gregory said. "I don't have family and friends — much less a bank — who will loan us tens of thousands of dollars for Roland's treatment.

Gregory created a GoFundMe page to raise money for her son's treatment.

A lose-lose for the taxpayer

The kicker is that states will still lose money even if Congress restores funding.

Writing, printing, and mailing termination notices to families requires time and money. So does notifying insurance providers and other stakeholders, submitting paperwork to the CMS, and paying call center staff overtime for helping concerned parents figure out how to proceed in the absence of CHIP.

A Georgetown University study estimated that ending CHIP will cost Colorado, for example, at least $300,000.

"Inaction by Congress costs states time and money as officials grapple with various 'what if' scenarios," the study authors wrote.

In early November, the House passed a bill that would provide funding for CHIP for five years. The bill stalled in the Senate.

"There's no question that if CHIP isn't refunded, we're going to do a turn on the success in covering children that we've had," said Brooks, the healthcare expert. "Where are the values in this country?"

We can do without celebrity scandals in any given year. Here are the top 5 celebrity scandals of 2017.

2017 saw a couple of celebrities excel in their career while some were involved in one scandal or the other.

Based on how they trended on social media and the buzz they got, we bring to you 5 of the biggest celebrity scandals of 2017.

1. Psquare's split

 

The fight between the Peter and Paul Okoye was the biggest scandal of the year as it attracted massive attention from everyone. It all started as a message Paul Okoye had posted on his Instagram account which got his followers hinting about a possible friction in the house of the Okoyes.  It was followed by shades upon shades from both brothers and even the wife of Peter Okoye, Lola Omotayo was even reportedly called out as the brain behind their feud.

Then was the release of the viral video which broke the Internet, in it were the brothers calling each other names and almost resulting in attacking themselves physically. This scandal rocked social media for a long time speculating the end of the group Psquare. Both brothers have gone their separate ways and have started solo careers.

2. Mercy Aigbe’s bloody photos

 

April 2017 marked the beginning of one of the biggest scandal that in the year. Mercy Aigbe had announced that she had left her husband's house over alleged claims of domestic violence. It didn't end there, she followed her statement by releasing photos of her brutally bruised face which held her estranged husband, Lanre Gentry responsible for.

Now the release of those photos caused a big commotion on social media and made her trend for weeks. This was followed by back and forth accusations from both parties over what really transpired. Even though there have been speculations about the couple getting back, they are yet to openly come out to debunk or accept that claim.

3. Tonto Dike’s messy separation

 

Tonto Dikeh is known to be a very controversial actress but this year she has been involved in one of the biggest scandals of all time. In August 2017 the beautiful actress announced her separation from estranged husband, Churchill Oladunni. Now that's where the scandal began as she began to reveal a lot that transpired while she was still married to him.

From videos to letters, Tonto Dikeh's divorce became a major headline. It got so messy that she had her bride price returned to the family of Churchill Oladunni. On his own part, Oladunni Churchill released video evidence of Tonto Dikeh destroying their home and fighting him.

4. Burna Boy's alleged involvement in Mr 2Kay attack

 

Well, this is the scandal that rounded up the year 2017 as no one saw it coming that Burna Boy would get himself involved in a scandal. Back in October 2017, singer, Mr. 2Kay was robbed and beaten to a pulp at Eko Hotel and Suites after a show where he had performed.

After the attack, the police took over the investigation and they arrested four suspects who later confessed to committing the crime but called out Burna Boy as the sponsor. All hell went loose as the scandal shocked everyone.

Then it was found out that Burna Boy had threatened to deal with Mr. 2Kay after he had called him out for speaking rudely about pastors. The robbers confessed to having been paid N100,000 to carry out the attack, Burna Boy was declared wanted and is yet to report to the police to clear his name.

Another celebrity scandal that rocked the entertainment industry in 2017 was the arrest of the singer, Dammy Krane in the United States for credit card fraud and identity theft. When the news broke of his arrest it became a big story because everyone was talking about it.

When mug shots of him were released by the police it looked like the career of the music star was coming to a halt. However he was later released and he made it clear to everyone that he wasn’t guilty of any of the charges held against him rather, he wasn't aware that he had been booked on a flight with a stolen credit card.

First Dates: Where to have the best first date in Lagos

If you want to avoid the usual dinner and drinks, here are some alternative first date ideas to do in Lagos

 

Lagos is a vibrant city with lots to do but even then, we still seem to get stuck in the same first date rut of dinner and drinks.

Whilst there's nothing wrong with getting to know somebody over a meal, we have put together the ultimate list for a less than ordinary first date which is bound to score you a second, providing you don't mess it up.

Paint & Bake- Chocolat Royale

If you thought this was just for kids then you thought wrong because creativity and fun has no age limit. Paint and Bake is available at 3 locations of Chocolat Royale all over the island and offers you the chance to let out your inner Picasso. Create a piece of pottery of your choice and decorate it however you like and the kind people at Chocolat Royale will bake it for you and you can take it home as a souvenir. A cute first date idea would be to make something for the each other to take home as a momento of your time together.

 

Lekki Conservation Centre

Lekki Conservation Centre is probably one of Lagos' best hidden gems. Tucked away just off the Lekki-Epe expressway, this is one of the largest conservation areas in Lagos and is home to a variety of animals including monkeys and throw in the odd crocodile or two. If you want to experience plants and animals in their natural habitat, then this place is a must visit for that special date. The NCF was set aside to sustain the natural habitation of plants, and animals as urbanisation began leading to the intrusion of areas meant for them. This meant that in a city like Lagos which is fast becoming a bonafide urban jungle, we can enjoy a slice of wildlife. Take along a guide and tell your date about the types of plants and animals as you stroll along. If that doesn't impress them then what will?!

 

Nike Art Gallery

Art is one of those things; either you like it or you don't but due to a rise in young contemporary artists who are pushing the boundaries of what it means to be an artist, the art world is becoming far more accessible and relatable. Whether you're an art lover, a novice or simply curious, Nike art gallery is a must visit. Take your date on a stroll along the grounds and take in the pieces together. You don't have to know anything about art, you simply have to tell each other what you see and how it makes you feel. Looking at art together can be quite an emotive and intimate way to spend time together. If you're lucky, you might meet Mama Nike and get to discuss with the legend herself. An unforgettable experience.

 

Zip-line at Lekki Leisure Lake

Calling all adrenaline junkies! What better way to get to know someone by seeing them scared out of their mind! First dates can be awkward and uncomfortable with both parties needing that little push to come out of their shells. Zip-lining is a fun and exciting activity that will break the ice in no time. Lekki Leisure lake is a hub of fun activities so after having a go on the zip-line, how about a ride on the quad bikes or drinking a cocktail on the beach and toasting to surviving your whirlwind first date.

Pulse List 2017: Top 10 quotes in Nigerian politics for the year

Buhari sympathises with Egypt over mosque massacre

Nigerians got more than enough in the way of quotes from the political arena this year.

2017 has been a rollercoaster year for Nigerian politics.

Much of it started with President Muhammadu Buhari's medical vacation in London which led to strains between the executive and the legislature.

Several public officers also went at loggerheads with each other to...assume dominance?

Out of the rubble of all that drama comes a few gems that defined Nigerian politics in 2017:

1. "I was distressed to notice that some of the comments, especially in the social media have crossed our national red lines by daring to question our collective existence as a nation. This is a step too far." - President Muhammadu Buhari

After his return from his second medical trip to London that took 103 days, President Buhari returned to rebuke Nigerians' irreverent use of social media to make reckless comments.

Whether he intended it or not, he made "national red lines" a catchphrase that'll be remembered for a while.

2. "You speak the truth, you die; you lie, you die. I, Dino Melaye, I have chosen to speak the truth and die." - Senator Dino Melaye.

 

Senator Dino Melaye didn't become the country's  most infamous lawmaker by keeping his mouth shut for anyone or thing.

He has been actively involved in his fair share of public spats this year, and the above quote, along with his hilarious song and dance, is probably this year's most iconic political moment, for the wrong reason.

3. "It is criminal. It is unconscionable. It is wicked for people who are so highly privileged, who are the wealthiest people in the country to still be sucking our blood dry by collecting these things which they don't need and depriving others of them." - Prof. Itse Sagay.

One of this year's longest-running public feuds involved the Senate pitted against the chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Professor Itse Sagay.

He didn't hide his bile for the upper legislative chamber, and that gesture was generously reciprocated…

4. "This man talks like a man who is constantly under the influence of some substance and perhaps possessed as he employs the language of a tout with no civility. He is probably constantly excited and incensed by the fact of having his first opportunity to find himself in the corridors of power." Senate spokesperson, Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi in response to Sagay's scathing criticism.

Immaturity in high places.

5. "The Buhari administration has done nothing. They deploy propaganda and lies at a professional level." - former President Goodluck Jonathan.

 

The former president appeared to still be smarting from his loss to President Buhari in 2015 and lashed out at some of the veiled jabs made at his administration by the presidency.

6. "Let me tell you today that if Baba said he is going to contest in 2019, I swear to Allah, I will go before him and kneel and tell him that 'Baba I am grateful for the opportunity you gave me to serve your government as a minister but Baba just like you know I will support only Atiku because he is my godfather' if Atiku said he is going to contest."

In one of the biggest moments of Nigerian politics in 2017, a serving cabinet minister, Aisha Alhassan, endorsed a potential rival, Atiku Abubakar, to her principal's possible re-election bid, and even promised to quit to drive home her point.

Oh, the drama!

7. "No matter where we go, our hearts are always at home. It's not different for Alh. Atiku Abubakar. Home for him is PDP. Wherever he goes, just like footballers on loan, who can decide to stay or return home, Atiku always returns home, just that this time, he's returned to his vomit." - Lauretta Onochie

President Buhari's Personal Assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie has been designated the president's attack dog on social media, and her reaction to former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar's resignation from the ruling All Progressives' Congress (APC) is one of 2017's highlight.

8. "God has answered the prayers of the weaker Animals, The Hyenas and the Jackals will soon be sent out of the kingdom. We strongly believe in the prayers and support of the weaker animals. Long live the weaker animals, Long live Nigeria."

There's no denying the people's great love and admiration for the First Lady, but she doesn't manufacture great moments quite as well as our former love, Dame Patience Jonathan.

However, she hasn't shied away from her fair share of gems, famously trading cryptic messages with Senator Shehu Sani on Facebook in July.

Nigerians were not amused with being represented as weaker animals.

 

9. "So I want you people to tell me what my offences are so that I can adjust. If I know my offence, I will definitely apologise, but should someone accuse me wrongly, go and ask Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, ask Jonathan, they were once President of this country, one ended up in the grave, another ended up in Otuoke." - Nasir El-Rufai.

Kaduna State governor, El-Rufai, does not back down from a fight, and he showed that by making a distasteful callback to one of Nigeria's most painful political events.

10. "Hunger and poverty have no political party, hunger and poverty have no religion. To have brought people to discuss on the line of APC or PDP is not correct because the poor PDP man and the poor APC man all go to the same market." - Senator Dino Melaye.

Hate his guts all you want, but Melaye gave Nigerians the most relatable quote of 2017.

If this was a quote competition, he'd be the winner.

Tech: Jimmy Kimmel makes tearful plea alongside 7-month-old son for Congress to save child healthcare program

jimmy kimmel billy son

"Parents of children with cancer, diabetes and heart problems are about to get letters saying their coverage could be cut off... Merry Christmas, right?"

  • Jimmy Kimmel made a tearful plea to lawmakers to secure funding for CHIP.
  • The Children's Health Insurance Program covers 9 million children who would struggle to pay for healthcare without it.
  • Kimmel held his son Billy, who has a heart condition that has required several surgeries.
  • CHIP's funding expired while politicians were finalising details of an impending tax bill.


Jimmy Kimmel took his seven-month-son on air to make a tearful plea to congress to save the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which covers 9 million children in the US.

Kimmel appeared alongside Billy after a week-long break from his show, "Live." Billy was born with tetralogy of fallot with pulmonary atresia, a rare defect which required open heart surgery just hours after his birth.

Billy has undergone a series of surgeries in his short life, but Kimmel said he now has just one more to go.

CHIP, first introduced during the Clinton administration, recently had its funding lapse as Congress focuses on passing tax reform. An analysis by the Urban Institute found that 1.2 million children, many of them in low-income families, could lose their healthcare.

Speaking with his son in his arms, Kimmel immediately began to tear up while compelling Congress to act to fund CHIP, and his viewers to demand action from their representatives.

"CHIP has become a bargaining chip. It's on the back burner while they work out their new tax plans, which means parents of children with cancer, diabetes and heart problems are about to get letters saying their coverage could be cut off next month," Kimmel said. "Merry Christmas, right?"

"Imagine getting that letter, literally not knowing how you will afford to save your child's life. This is not a hypothetical. About 2 million CHIP kids have serious chronic conditions," Kimmel said.

Kimmel pointed out that CHIP usually gets bipartisan support in the Senate and House but said "this year they let the money for it expire while they work on getting tax cuts for their millionaire and billionaire donors."

Pulse List 2017: Top 5 TV and web series of the year

Battleground Poster

From "King Women" to "Jemeji," check out the top 5 TV and web series of the year 2017.

This year's TV offerings brought us some impressive storytelling, failed whodunits and also the outrightly terrible ones. 

As is the norm, Pulse has put together the best five TV and web series of the year.

This list focuses on the well-written, superbly acted, and beautifully shot and directed TV and web shows.

In ascending order, check them out.

1. "This is It"

 

One of the year's treasure is this profoundly heartfelt web series by Dolapo Adeleke, also known as LowlaDee.

With an impressive ensemble of talents such as Nick Mutuma, Chiagoziem Nwakama, Stan Nze and Bimbo Ademoye, the series delves into an exposition of married life at a young age and the truths that loiter behind closed doors.

With an arresting script, charming music and seamless editing, the series leaves viewers enthralled, creating characters that they can root for, grieve with and celebrate with.

2. "Sons of the Caliphate"

 

A drama about the lives of three rich, entitled, passionate and ambitious young men, Kalifah, Nuhu and Diko, "Sons of the Caliphate" thrives on power play and revenge, with a well-rounded talented cast that have you coming back weekly.

Its fealty to real-life elitism is one of most impressive aspects of the series.  "Sons of the Caliphate" is a rich and accurate picture of the Northern Elite class, delivered with a palpable dedication.

With well-crafted humour, plot, dialogue and top-notch production design, "Sons of the Caliphate" earns a spot on this list.

3. "King Women"

 

With “King Women,” Kemi Adetiba elevates conversations to a place of inspiration and empowerment.

A refreshing, feminine, brilliant and powerful web series, “King Women” is an interview-based series by Adetiba.

As the host, she understands how to build relationships with her interviewees and get them to share their unheard stories.

The women in each episode tell their stories from their hearts. It's the passion and sincerity with which they share their live story that evoke emotions from viewers.

4. "Battleground"

 

An entertaining reflection of our society, "Battleground" is a family drama that explores relationships, betrayal, infidelity, politics and romance.

It tells the story of a wealthy man who cheats on his wife, secretly marries his side chick, has kids with both women, and following a set of events, sees his two worlds suddenly collide.

Basically the ingenuity of a team of young talents, the series boasts several first-time talented actors, including Nonso Bassey (Dr Emeka), Chike (Mayowa) and Ron Mgbatogu (The General), and is guaranteed to create household names.

A consistently poignant and logical show, "Battleground" is a win for 2017 TV.

5. "Jemeji"

Africa Magic's "Jemeji" is stylishly satisfying and shocking. The show unravels at a hypnotic pace, drawing viewers into the lives of the citizens of Aji.

The show is a hybrid of well written and directed jaw-dropping and ethereal moments.

However, what makes it more compelling is the cast, whose dedication and enthusiasm for their characters and the show, in general, clearly comes off the screen.

Tremendous acting from Tope Tedela, Omuwumi Dada, Demola Dedoyin and Ayoola also gives it an extra advantage.

Mesut Ozil: Arsenal ready to offer £300,000-per-week contract to midfielder

Mesut Ozil

Arsenal’s new offer is close to the £300,000-per-week which Ozil is looking for.

Arsenal are making a last-ditch attempt to keep midfielder Mesut Ozil by offering him a £300,000-per-week contract.

Ozil’s contract expires at the end of the season but talks over a contract extension have since broken down with reports linking him to a move to Manchester United and Barcelona.

The 29-year-old midfielder has impressed in recent weeks and the Gunners are making another attempt to persuade him to pen a new contract.

ALSO READ: Ozil stars in Arsenal win

According to reports from England, Arsenal’s new offer is close to the £300,000-per-week which the Germany international is looking for.

If talks are successful, Ozil will be the highest earner in Arsenal’s history and will also be a big relief for Arsene Wenger who is resigned to losing Alexis Sanchez either for a fee in January or for free in the summer of 2018.

Ozil's Arsenal stint so far

Ozil joined Arsenal in the summer of 2013 and although he has been inconsistent, he has still managed to win three FA Cup titles with the Gunners.
