Joint wedding for P-Square?

P-Square are reportedly planning to have a joint white wedding.
This comes after one of the identical twin brothers, Peter recently had his traditional wedding.
His brother, Paul said they couldn't have their traditional weddings on the same day because of cultural differences.
Paul's fiancé, Anita Isama, is from Kogi and Peter's wife is Yoruba.
Paul said, "So because im dey marry Yoruba woman, wey dem go do am here, if my own na from Kogi, all of us go do am for Lagos? Make una chill. That's why it's a traditional marriage. You do it in a girl's home. When I go do my own, I will do it in her home."
Paul added, "If na for white wedding, I will answer you" prompting speculation that their white wedding will be on the same day.

NAFDAC closes 54 sachet water factories

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) on Thursday said that the agency had sealed 54 table water producing factories in the Niger state.
The NAFDAC Coordinator in Niger, Mr Dadi Mantum, said this at news conference in Minna.
He said that the 54 sachet water factories were closed in Suleja and Minna for allegedly contravening the agency's regulations.
Mantum said that the agency took the action following tip-offs that the factories were operating illegally, adding that the factories were closed as part of efforts to protect public health.
He stressed that NAFDAC would strive to be more proactive, warning that it would sanction any individual or organisation found wanting in compliance with extant regulations on water packaging.
"It is the simple laws that we are going to enforce. These include laws on hygiene, cleanliness, proper storage of water, proper mode of transportation and employment of correct personnel.
"We have decided that these simple laws would be enforced.
"Acquisition of equipment is not enough. In fact, these producers buy equipment which is quite expensive.
"We, however, need to enforce the laws on hygiene so as to guarantee that the sachet water being produced is fit for human consumption," he said.
The NAFDAC coordinator identified lack of personnel as one of the limitations which constrained the agency from getting to the grassroots regularly.
Mantum said that with the assistance of the state government, task forces were being set up to carry out the enforcement of health standards in the rural areas.
"We are constrained when is comes to reaching out to the people in the rural areas as regularly as we do with the people in urban areas.
"That’s why there is still much disparity between monitoring in the urban and rural areas," he said.
