Harrison Ford’s casting in “Expendables 3″ even left him a little speechless.
When CNN caught up with the busy 71-year-old actor at Thursday’s premiere of his latest movie, “Paranoia,” he initially couldn’t quite express what drew him to his new gig.

Hello My dear peeps,
Yesterday, I was inspired by a wonderful lady whose speech was being discussed in one of my lecture. This Lady is one of the famous Nigerian authors and she is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The speech was about how every one has a single story of everything. In fact, when we dig inside her thought, we come to the conclusion that she is right. We are the results of the way we’ve been socialised, We are the results of what we have been taught, we are simply the story our parents made of us.
I live in a multicultural country. I live in a rainbow country. I live multiracial country. I live in the star and key of the Indian Ocean, I live in Mauritius. The single story of most people would be that I live in Paradise. If we believe what Mark Twain once said in 1897.. “God created Mauritius first and then paradise was copied after it..” But when we go beneath this saying we see that the paradise is not filled with angels only. That on the other hand, there is a different way in interpreting what the paradise is.
The National Universities Commission, the regulatory body governing the activities of all Universities in Nigeria has again made some startling changes.
Just days after suspending all Part-time programmes being run by Universities, the NUC has suspended the operational licences of seven private universities for violating its guidelines in physical facilities and academic programmes.
The affected universities are Achievers University, Owo; Caritas University, Enugu; Joseph Ayo Babalola University, Osun; Lead City University, Ibadan; Madonna University, Okija; Obong University, Obong and Tansian University, Umunya.
NUC spokesman, Mallam Ibrahim Yakassai, confirmed this in a phone chat last night.
The decision to suspend the operational licences of the affected universities was due to their non-compliance with the regulations guiding the operations of universities in the country as stipulated by the NUC.
“The operators of the universities affected know their offences because so many times, we have informed them about their failings but they did not take necessary steps to address their shortcomings. Anyway, It’s just a suspension and it will be lifted as soon as they do the correct things,” he said.
This according to NUC implies they can’t admit new students nor continue lectures for old students until further notice.
