See T.B Joshua back in the day pics and experience growing up

The popular Lagos prophet shared some throwback photos of himself on his Facebook page and story about growing up in poverty and overcoming it. What he wrote below...

"I found myself in a family background that irritated me. My natural circumstance of birth was poverty. I come from a very humble background. Poverty loomed large in the family. The little education I had was through self effort. I know many people with a similar circumstance of birth who did otherwise. They allowed their circumstance to influence their will. Their dreams crashed on the rocks of disappointment, failure and setback.”

Doctors found 50-year-old fetus inside woman's abdomen

Doctors in Chile discovered 50-year-old fetus inside a woman's abdomen. BBC reports the woman, who is said to be in her 90s, went to the hospital after a nasty fall and that's where doctors learned via X-ray that she had the decades-old fetus inside.

 The phenomenon is known as a lithopedion and occurs when a fetus dies during pregnancy and then becomes calcified outside the uterus, allowing it to stay in the body. Doctors say they sent the woman home and do not plan on removing the fetus because operating on a patient her age may be too risky.

APC Crisis Deepens As APC Senators Engage In Physical Combat Over Sharing Of Principal Offices

The crisis rocking the APC over selection of principal officers Tuesday deepened as the meeting of the caucus members of the party in the upper chambers ended in deadlock. At the meeting of the APC senators to address the problem, some senators engaged in physical combat thereby bringing the meeting to an abrupt end. At resumed plenary, Senate President Bukola Saraki had after adjournment announced that a meeting of the APC caucus was fixed for 2:00pm.

According to a source, the meeting which was the first time the two camps (Saraki and Lawan) would agree to a meeting after Saraki edged out Ahmad Lawan in the race for the Senate presidency. The meeting was held behind close door in meeting room 3: 01 and had about 40 APC Senators in attendance.  At the meeting, Senator Danjuma Goje, Gombe Central led the group loyal to Saraki on one side, while Senator Barnabas Gemade, Benue North East led the group loyal to Lawan.

A source told Vanguard that the position of Saraki’s group was that candidates must emerge through an electoral process, the four favoured zonal caucuses should meet, conduct elections at zonal levels, then communicate winners of such elections to the Senate President and that once the zonal caucuses conclude their elections by the end of Tuesday, the Senate President would announce those to fill the posts at Wednesday plenary.

The Unity Forum which supported Lawan were opposed to it as they insisted that the names nominated by the APC leadership to take the positions be adhered to.

There was a melodrama when Senator Kabir Marafa, Zamfara Central, pushed and attacked Senator Tayo Alasoadura, Ondo Central for daring to challenge the decision of the party. Alasoadura was saved by the timely intervention of Senator Rafiu Ibrahim (Kwara) who held Marafa firmly and prevented him from hitting at his target.

Other Senators also joined in saving the ugly situation even as rains of abusive words intensified from all angles in different languages.
