US President Barack Obama told cheering supporters early Wednesday that "the best is yet to come" for the United States as he stormed to a second term by defeating Republican Mitt Romney.
After taking the stage at a raucous Chicago victory party with wife
Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia, Obama returned to the themes of
his re-election bid, vowing to fight for the middle class and the
"In this election, you, the American people, reminded us that while our road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up. We have fought our way back," Obama told hundreds of cheering supporters.
"We know in our hearts that for the United States of America the best is yet to come."
Obama said he had spoken to Romney, congratulating him and his running mate Paul Ryan on a "hard-fought campaign" and vowing to sit down with the former Massachusetts governor to discuss the way forward.
"We may have battled fiercely but it's only because we love this
country deeply and we care so strongly about its future," Obama said.
"In the weeks ahead I also look forward to sitting down with governor
Romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country
Obama reached out to those who supported his opponent
in the closely-fought race, saying: "Whether I earned your vote or not, I
have listened to you. I have learned from you. You've made me a better
"With your stories and your struggles I return to the
White House more determined and more inspired than ever about the work
there is to do and the future that lies ahead," he said.
"Despite all the hardship we've been through, despite all the
frustrations of Washington, I've never been more hopeful about our
future. I have never been more hopeful about America."

secured his re-election to a second four-year term, calling them the
"best campaign team and volunteers in the history of politics."
Near the end of his speech Obama hinted at a more far-reaching agenda in
his second term despite the lingering partisan gridlock in Washington,
calling for a future that "isn't threatened by the destructive power of a
"I believe we can seize this future together
because we are not as divided as our politics suggest. We're not as
cynical as the pundits believe. We are greater than the sum of
individual ambitions," Obama said.
"Together with your help and God's Grace we will continue our journey forward and remind
the world just why it is that we live in the greatest nation on earth.
Thank you, America. God bless you. God bless these United States."

The Lagos state governor, Babatunde Fashola has vowed to enforce the new traffic law and the existing environmental laws of the state to ensure the state remains environmentally-friendly.
The governor, who disclosed this on Tuesday after visiting some on-going projects sites, however warned visitors and those interested in coming to live in Lagos to keep abreast with the details of these laws so as not to break them.
Mr Fashola said the state government will not fold its arms while some residents live in Lagos as if they are living in their villages.
"You can't continue to live like you are in your village here in Lagos(YES KE ,EKO ONI BAJE). Life in Lagos is changing by the day. The government has spent fortune to ensure good environment, drainages, roads and transportation system. It is unfortunate some people are still living as if they are in their village.
"Please, if you can't obey our environmental and traffic laws, stay back in your village," the governor warned.

Tonto Dike's word is everywhere again,this time around,not about her singing or acting career.
The pretty actress posted a tweet about her virginity which got some of her fans angry .
Her tweet read ‘I got disvirgined by @DONJAZZY” i think this a lil bit Too Much info.’
She is not alone on this thought as a lot of her followers on twitter also think the same way and it’s beginning to generate an uproar.
Already Don Jazzy has tried making a joke of it by quickly re-tweeting ‘lol me dat im still a V,’ (‘V’ standing in as Virgin).
Fans, however, are not sniffing the lighter side of this development as many have pounced on the tweet by Tonto alleging she’s going low and desperately trying to remain in the public eye with such tweets. Others claim it was unnecessary, joke or no joke.
Well, she has since remained quiet about this! (Thank heavens)
@Tonto's fans should please calm down,sure she is
From her prime seat at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Beyonce rocked a new shag cut with blunt bangs. But don't get too attached to her current 'do of stick-straight, long blond locks, because the "Run the World (Girls)" singer has been known to change her hair as often as fellow pop stars Rihanna and Katy Perry. Bey's past styles have included loose locks, glitter highlights, and a head full of long braids.
While the bangs were a hit, the ensemble that Beyonce sported along with her new bangs ... not so much. That's because she appeared a little too comfy in her geometric-print burgundy and ivory separates by Tibi. What's up with the bizarre trend of celebs wearing ensembles that look like pajamas?! But instead of stepping out in a pair of slippers, Beyonce accessorized with heels by Giuseppe Zanotti, earrings by Erika Pena, and a ring by Yves Saint Laurent.

So I resumed work after the sallah break, this man has been very annoying ….where do I start from? His giving me work not meant for me, not approving my work, the query on why I resumed Tuesday(after I explained I wasn’t feeling fine) or his getting irritated over everything I do?....it’s actually been terrible ,but I have just been enduring all the shit!....I don’t need to be afraid like a friend would say FEAR could mean ‘forget everything and run or face everything and rise’, at the moment I KOFO DANIELS is ready to face everything and rise…….

Today been November 5, 2012 a general mail was sent to all marketing staff about a new type of account the bank is introducing which is very good for people that travel out a lot and every marketing staff is expected to open at least 10 before the end of November, the opening balance of this account is N250,000. #angryface so this people don’t even want to know if you are a corper or not……..well they might have to pursue me at some point, because I don’t think I’m cut out for all these>>>>
We held a meeting this morning and my Boss was emphasizing on the fact that he won’t take it likely with anyone who doesn’t meet up with his/her target (shuuuuuuu na by force,I be corper na),he afterwards said he has noticed some sort of lackadaisical approach to work from some member of staff, and that even the corpers are not exempted in this , especially KOFO DANIELS who thinks she can add a day to her holidays by claiming she wasn’t fine, and that he needs a medical report to that effect and that he hopes the reply to the query he gave me this morning…(this man is now angry because I insisted on travelling to see my YOMI….#ISOKAY)….About 30 minutes after the meeting he instructed the Business operations manager to make sure the salary for that day is deducted from my money by month end when salaries will be paid, the Business Operations manager (BSM) sent me a mail to that effect just to inform me……(hmm ,salary wey I don’t get plan for, God dey) as usual I called TOBI who advised I just keep calm about the whole thing, that everything would be fine(but when????) He just informed me that we would be seeing a new customer today (why would I want to go out for marketing with this devil?????),I am just praying this won’t be another round of *let’s do lunch together stuff, I’m just going to keep a straight face*(EMI ORAYE NONSENSE)…..now on our way..
