     The footballer has confessed how difficult it has been for him as regards his pursuit of a suitable life partner..This is what he said;
    "I know, normal people don't go through what I am going through now when it concerns finding a wife to marry, and normal people don't at all.
    Believe me it's so so difficult, very difficult, it's so so difficult you just have to leave it to God.
    There might be someone who really loves me truly for who I am but I may not be aware and maybe you don't know... or you may think she's one of those who loves you for who you are or what you have, or because of your money, maybe she's there for you, you never know, you get so confused. Now I have decided I will just leave it to God to decide who I get married to"

    Aero Resumes Flights, Recalls Workers

    1906F03.Aero-Contractors.jpg - 1906F03.Aero-Contractors.jpg
    Nigeria’s major carrier, Aero Contractors resumed flights yesterday after recalling over 600 workers it sacked about two weeks ago.
    The airline stopped its operation and sacked over 600 of its workers a fortnight ago when it had industrial disagreement with the staff, who were protesting over the plan to outsource part of its manpower as cost-cutting measure. But when it wanted to resume operations the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) insisted that it must carry out re-evaluation exercise in order to restore its operational certificate.

    THISDAY learnt that what delayed the re-evaluation was that the airline’s manpower was very low for its operational capacity, so NCAA insisted that it must beef up its manpower by recalling the workers before it would be allowed to resume operation.
    At its Lagos operational base at the domestic terminal of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos (MAA2), Aero workers were   seen yesterday selling tickets to customers and there were officials of the airline at the check-in counters.

    THISDAY also learnt, from one of the workers who was hitherto sacked got a message from Aero management to resume work yesterday morning and the same message was relayed to other workers of the airline.
    THISDAY visited the ticket sales counters yesterday and at 2 pm passengers were still trickling in because there was no prior information about the airline’s resumption of flights.

    Meanwhile, thousands of passengers who wanted to travel for the Easter holiday thronged the ticketing and check-in counters of Arik Air at the General Aviation Terminal (GAT) of the Lagos airport yesterday.
    The crowd that was almost uncontrollable created a chaotic atmosphere that it was extremely difficult to walk into the airport terminal, particularly if the person has luggage.

    Photos: Pope Francis Lies On The Floor In Prayer During Good Friday Service

     Prayer: The pontiff led the Celebration of the Lord's Passion in the Vatican

    The pontiff actually did this today, as he led the Celebration of the Lord's Passion in Saint Peter's Basilica.
    Presiding over his first Easter week as pope, the former Archbishop of Buenos Aires lay prostrate, praying to God before the famous church's alter atop a rug with his arms resting on a pillow.

      He visited a prison yesterday to wash and kiss the feet of convicted criminals.

    He held a major Easter Week service at Casal del Marmo young offenders’ prison in Rome, where he told the inmates that he was happy to be with them, that they shouldn't give up hope.
    In a first for a Pope, he also attended to the feet of two woman prisoners. Several of the 12 were also Muslim and he has carried out similar ceremonies in Argentinian jails.

    Pope Francis already has officials on the back foot with his lack of regard for protocol as he has garnered attention for his humility and willingness to break from tradition.

    Recall I told you he had insisted he will not live in the lavish Papal apartment, a 12-room property on the top floor of the Vatican's Apostolic Palace.
    On seeing the apartment, Pope Francis had reporedly said: ‘But there is room for 300 people in here.’
    So, instead, he chose a modest two-bedroom hotel-style residence at the Domus Santa Marta building.
    Pope Francis wants to lead the church in a direction that prioritises care for the most disadvantaged in society.

    Worship: Pope Francis prays in front of the alter at Saint Peter's Basilica during a Good Friday service
    To his feet: The 76-year-old is helped to his feet during the service, which is his first as pope To his feet: The 76-year-old is helped to his feet during the service, which is his first as pope
    Tradition: Pope Francis washed and kissed the feet of inmates at a young offenders prison in Rome
    Ritual: The Pope kisses the feet of one of twelve prisoners during the Holy Thursday ritual

    Rick Ross Explains Date Rape Lyric

    Rick Ross has been catching heat for a controversial rap lyric that appears to endorse date rape. He featured in a rap song where he spit:
    “Put molly all in her champagne/she aint even know it/I took her home and I enjoyed that/she aint even know it."
    In an interview on New Orleans radio station Q93.3, Rick says his lyric was misunderstood: 
    "I wanted to come down to the radio station. There is certain things you can’t tweet, you have to verbalize. I want to make sure this is clear, that woman is the most precious gift known to man, you understand? It was a misunderstanding with a lyric, a misinterpretation where the term rape wasn’t used. I would never use the term rape. As far as my camp, hip hop don’t condone that. The streets don’t condone that. Nobody condones that. So I wanted to reach out to all the queens that’s on my timeline, all the sexy ladies, the beautiful ladies that have been reaching out to me with the misunderstanding. We don’t condone rape and I’m not with that."

    I Haven't Ever Been Turned Down By A Lady - Lynxxx

    Below is what Lynxxx told City People in a recent interview:
    Have you ever been turned down by a lady?
    Lynxxx: No
    Even in your KC days? (He attended Kings College)
    I haven't ever been turned down because I always make sure there is green light first. And my game was too much then. Now I don't even have time to be chasing women. I am just focused on my music.
    On marriage
    I am trying to settle down as I am getting older. It is only right you settle down because when you are exposed to this kind of attention, it's very easy to go off track. And you don't know if the women want you for who you are or for your money or for your fame or to destroy you. You are a target once you are famous. So you have to be very smart and don't get exposed in a negative way.
