Speaking at a book presentation in Lagos on Monday as organised by the Save Nigeria Group (SNG), el-Rufai, however, warned those who may have reservations about the contents of the 700-paged work to write a rejoinder, instead of trying to castigate him.

And Denrele had this to say to her....
My super star friend sways away and I stand watching till she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says "she's gone"...Gone where?.
Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as gorgeous now as when last I saw her.
Her slightly disappearing figure and total loss from my sight is in me, not in her.
And just at that moment, when someone at my side says she's gone, there are others who are watching her coming over their horizon and other voices take up a glad shout - There she comes! That is what dying id - An horizon and just the limit of our sight.
My lifeline, my lexicon, Therapist and support system. We have known lots of pleasure, at times endured ppai, we have lived in the sunshine and walked in the rain.
I had acute malaria (was shaking terribly) but performed “skibobo” with you at the Industry Night and Loud&Proud show, I sprained my ankle but still shot your three videos in a row in S/A.
I left my family house and moved in with you and your family right after all the Big Brother Africa madness, I did all the damage control.
I fought every organizer simply cos I wanted you on the bill with me and split my show earnings with you, I dragged you to the American Embassy even if it meant I had to get up at 4am.'
I endured negative criticism because shallow minds couldn’t comprehend your brand essence – I started wearing block heels (you got me the most fabulous pair of Jeffrey Campbells) and I damned the consequences.
I recorded the reality show “Tru Friendship” with you because you went on and on about it and I wanted to please you.
I have been your fierce-alter ego in all your videos, I have fought your fights, endured countless eccentric P.As with you. I can go on and on and this is how you leave me? You chose an eternal sleep over a fabulous life with me?
Lest I forget, I ate the entire box of birthday chocolates Bola sent to you.
Phew, I can’t type anymore, I’m playing “Good To Me” (always disturbed you to release that song) and my notepad is a misty mess of my never ending tears. So sad when people who give you the best memories, become a memory!
The Goldie I knew, despite your success and worldwide recognition, still wondered, “Am I good enough?” “Am I pretty enough?” “Will they like me?” It was this burden that made you great…And that made you stumble in the end.
Goldie if you can hear me now, you weren’t just good enough – You were abso-frigging-lutely GREAT! You sang the whole damn song without a band- you made the picture of a showbiz star look so perfect!

The official autopsy for singer Goldie Harvey has been done and shows that the singer died of intracerebellar hemorrhage caused by hypertensive heart disease.
The autopsy carried out February 19, was signed by Dr. O.O Oyewole of the Department of Pathology and Forensic Medicine. The burial arrangement for the former Big Brother Africa house mate will be announced by the family.
Goldie died on Valentine’s Day shortly after she returned from Los Angeles, United States where she attended the 55th Grammy Awards.
For millions, this condition has stopped them from getting that perfect girlfriend or posing for that lovely picture.
Acne (or pimples, spot or zit) is a common skin condition in which the skin pores become clogged, forming pimples which become inflamed and infected pus (abscess).
Although it has spoilt the perfect dinners for many, it is surprisingly very easy to control despite the brouhaha over it. Acne tends to develop in teenagers as a result of the interaction among hormones, oils and bacteria found on the skin and in the hair (like Propionibacterium acnes).
During puberty, sebaceous (oil-producing) glands in the skin become hyperactive and the excess oil blocks the skin pores with the formation of what is called a comedo. Bacteria in the pores break fats in the skin further irritating it. It is worse in winter and better in summer, because of the sun.
Most form on the face, neck, back, chest and shoulders. Anyone can get acne, but it is common in teenagers and young adults. It is not serious, but it can cause scars, and many consider it 'uncool'.
Now, it is important to state that diet has little or no effect on acne even though some think they are sensitive to certain foods. But, stopping the food and taking it after a few weeks can help determine if there is a correlation. That said, you can buy a bottle of groundnuts on your way to school this morning...lol.
It may also appear during menses in young women and may either increase or decrease during pregnancy. Teenagers using anabolic steroids are going to worsen their cases, and the same goes for some cosmetics. Stress can also worsen it so stop worrying!
WHAT TO DO:
A 25-year-old Nigerian tiler, Ebenezer Makati, who allegedly bit off part of his girlfriend’s two ears, following a lover’s spat, on Tuesday appeared before a Tinubu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.
Makati, who lives on Marwa Street, Elf Bus Stop, Lekki, is facing a two-count charge of unlawful assault and infliction of grievous bodily harm on his girlfriend, Peace Tunde.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Daniel Ighodalo, told the court that the accused committed the offence on 16 February at the Goshen Estate in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos at 11:00 p.m.
He said that the lovers fought following the absence of Tunde at the residence of the accused on Valentine’s Day.
According to him, the couple had been in a relationship since 2010.
Ighodalo said that accused went to Tunde’s house to confront her over her absence at his place on Valentine’s Day and to inquire about the man that picked her phone when he called.
“When he did not get the desired response from her, Makati, who claimed to be under the influence of alcohol and drugs at the time, beat her up and bit off parts of her ears,” Ighodalo said.
He added that the offences contravened Sections 171 and 243 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Lagos State, 2011.
The accused pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The magistrate, Mrs O. M. Ajayi, granted Mataki bail in the sum of N100, 000 with two sureties in like sum and adjourned the case to 6 March.
