News Roundup: Golden Globe Awards, Fort Lauderdale shooting, PMB still in tears

Golden Globe Awards held in LA

Last night, the Golden Globe Awards ceremony held. Well, it was a show to remember, by all accounts. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone were the biggest winners with their smash hit musical La La Land. In fact, La La Land won all the awards it was nominated for. What a movie, guys. Meryl Streep also won a Lifetime Award. However, I think Ryan Reynolds should have won one thing at least; Deadpool had us all in stitches last year. Well, the Golden Globe Awards was golden, in spite of that slight error. Wade Wilson can wait for the Oscars.

Gunman opens fire at Fort Lauderdle Airport, kills 5

On Friday afternoon, a man took out a handgun and opened fire in Fort Lauderdale Airport. At least five people died and more than 40 people got injured in the attack. However, it appears like the man had no real reason for doing this, though he reportedly suffered some mental damage before the incident. This is really getting out of hand, people. Now, it seems like more people are making up their minds to go out and kill people. We had too much of that last year. This cannot continue, guys; we have to do something.

PMB: “We are still in tears” over Chibok girls

On April 14th 2014, terrorist group Boko Haram invaded a school in Chibok, Borno State and kidnapped more than 200 girls. A huge number of the girls are still missing.

Well, they have spent 1,000 days in captivity. Some would say that it is way too much time to spend in captivity; they need to get back home, period. None of this statement stuff is bringing them back.

FRCN Rule sparks controversy as Pastor Adeboye retires

Meanwhile, the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria passed a law which put the maximum time a person can spend in charge of a company at 20 years. In response to that, Pastor E.A Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, stepped down from his position. Well, Nigerians have decried that rule. Lagos-based lawyer Chief Mike Ozehkome echoed a sentiment that a lot of people have felt. He declared the church should be exempt from these laws. Well, I believe so too; the State should not interfere in Church affairs, and vice versa. This is just meddling in God’s business.
