  • I am deeply surprised, my distant cousin who has been in the United States for 18 years just sent me a message that he is travelling to Nigeria to marry a girl he has been chatting with on facebook, he has concluded all plans. In fact, both families have met and the girl in question hired a team of old men to represent her village elders.


    This same girl has been doing Ashawo work for over 14 years, i am about to break the news to my cousin but this same girl has been begging me not to tell him. She said she will settle me Arhhh, i asked her how ? She said she will come and fvck me raw, i told her "You are mad".

    I asked my cousin how did you meet this girl, he said she added him on facebook and they have been chatting for over 8 months, they even have sex through skype. The girl brainwashed him saying she lost her virginity a year ago. I do not know how to confront my cousin about this as he has this American way of life "it ain't a problem". On the otherhand he needs to know the truth.

    Suggestions needed pls.

    The greatest tragedy that will befall us all is to allow anyone or anything distract us from the ALL IMPORTANT TASK OF reuniting the Daura HerdsmAn with his “homo” cows come 2019.

    For the sake of this all important task, please, do not let Buharists and closet Buharists use the Southeast PDP leaders complaint to score senseless ethnic point. Do not waste time defending Ndigbo by doing any comparison of how Yoruba, Hausa/Fulani or the Niger Delta people also complained about not being consulted at one time or the other. This a trap. A trap to lure you into a needless ethnic head-on-collision which will only benefit Buhari at the long run. Please, flee from this distraction

    The Southeast PDP leaders NEVER OPPOSED the choice of Peter Obi as Atiku’s VP. So those twisting the story to read that Ndigbo rejected Obi’s VP nomination are mischievous clowns. The video of their Press Briefing which I have in my possession clearly indicate their only problem was that they were not consulted and had to read such an important appointment on the social media. FOR THE SAKE OF FAIRNESS, I must acknowledge they were right to feel slighted. After staying put in the PDP at a time it was not fashionable to remain in the party and giving Atiku a block vote at the Port Harcourt convention, they earned the right to be consulted. It doesn’t mean they have the right to chose the VP. It simply means they deserve to be carried along. Politics is all about consultation. So in all honesty, Atiku ought to have consulted them.

    MY ONLY ISSUE WITH THEM IS THAT THEY OUGHT NOT TO HAVE GONE TO THE PRESS OVER SUCH THING WHICH THEY COULD EASILY HAVE SORTED OUT BY CALLING ATIKU/PDP ON THE PHONE. That ill-thought out Press drama is nonsense. It is important that we understand the issue and put them in proper perspective.

    I gathered from Thisday newspaper that this was rooted in a disagreement between the Southeast PDP and governor Wike over support for a certain candidate at the convention. Southeast instead gave a block vote to Atiku whom they believe has what it takes to drive away the herdsmAn. According to that ThisDay report, Umahi and others believe the non- consultation of Southeast PDP by Atiku/PDP was to appease Wike. After speaking with the Rivers State governor before their meeting, he (Umahi) and others planned on escalating tension but were prevailed upon by Ekweremadu. In other words, this is a supremacy war between NDIA NA NDIA (apologies to Osita).

    So don’t even allow Buharists sneak in to remind you how Ekweremadu is the owner of Chatham House in London among other 100 houses. We know they don’t like him for teaming up with Saraki to frustrate them at the National Assembly. Of course, they will also want to remind you how Osita Chidoka didn’t do anything as FRSC boss. Please ignore them. Na their way. Nothing is more important than sending Buhari back to Daura.

    Peter Obi’s name has been signed, sealed and delivered as Atiku’s running mate. In a couple of days from today, Atiku will meet with the Southeast PDP caucus, smile, shake hands and pose for a photograph with them and they will all sing and dance Kumbaya. Case closed.

    Remember, we are not ATIKUlating because we love PDP or the Southeast PDP leaders. I give no care about them and their PDP. If it was Arewa United Congress that provided the ACTIONABLE ALTERNATIVE platform to remove Buhari, I would have jumped on board. We are ATIKUlating because we simply want to stay alive. And Buhari means death and mass burial, herdsmen govt-sponsored ethnic cleansing etc. And the only ACTIONABLE ALTERNATIVE to getting rid of him is Atiku Abubakar. It doesn’t mean Atiku is a saint. It simply means that WITHIN THE LIMITED OPTIONS WE HAVE, we have chosen a man who MIGHT steal from us over a man who has been stealing both our belonging, land, and even our lives join.

    To achieve this all important task of seeing an end to Buhari’s iniquitiously atrocious rule, we need everyone on board. Both the PDP Southeast leaders, the APC people, Igbo, Hausa, Fulani, Yoruba, Edo etc. Even Buhari is free to join us in ATIKUlation to send himself back to his cows.

    Good news is, Saraki, the Senate President, along with his Colleagues, has succeeded in getting INEC to redeploy Buhari’s niece, Amina Zakari from operations department to Medical department. Her job now is to give injection and paracetamol and no longer to tamper with election result for Buhari, her Uncle. Immediately INEC redeployed her, Saraki and his colleagues sat and passed INEC budget for 2019 election. If the NASS succeed in forcing INEC to effect more changes that will reduce Buhari’s rigging chances, with the alliance between Atiku and the Generals plus his HANDSHAKE with international community, Buhari will soon go back to the only life achievement he can boast of, which is his legendary every year 150 cows. Even Mr transmission police chief can’t save him as there would be no 30,000 police thugs to deploy to help rig the poll.

    Those who say Buhari cannot be defeated will be shocked.

    Please, stay on course. The Lifeless One has caused enough damage and is even ready to cause more. For us to live, he has to leave Asorock for Daura even if he would go by wheel barrow.

    Ike Ekweremmadu is the political leader of PDP in the south east. South east political leadership believes the VP position should have gone to him .

    Atiku understands this , but he wants a Vice President who will head the National Economic Council , someone with a track record of good governance, cutting cost of governance and no efcc record . So he chose Peter Obi, the best governor Nigeria has ever had. A man who left office poorer than he was before he got in .

    A billionaire who was flying economy class and paying 30,000 to sleep in abuja hotels ,while his contemporaries who had never ran any businesses before, were flying Private Jets and living in Nicon Hilton .

    A man who was impeached because he refused to sign a contract which was inflated to 481 million and insisted on doing the job with 81 million . Even the current Presidency acknowledged this fact through Shehu Garuba earlier this year.

    Which politician in Nigeria can be bold enough to face impeachment and loss of his office rather than playing ball .

    Today Ike Ekwremmadu is at the forefront of galvanizing support for Peter Obi.

    In his words “even it means getting a Northern President and Northern Vice President, this clannish and incompetent government has to go”.

    An Atiku Presidency might excite many , but the nomination of Peter Obi is a strong signal that the man is more interested in governance than politics .

    The strategy is simple; show quickly the consequences and unpopularity of people’s actions and the wise will immediately autocorrect.

    When elders and family talk, we are not supposed to hear. If we hear, we will “shook mouth put”.

    The intelligence quotient of the people in question is exospheric. That we are talking VP in the first place is only because the dream of an East-West political highway was aborted with Postinol.

    God knows I believe from the bottom of my heart Peter Obi should be president. But for now we will take Vice President.

    Those who made the need for this post necessary must shoulder the full blame for the unnecessary distraction. Now Buhari has banned a dead man from traveling and it is not the news on the front-burner.

    I am happy to see Chidoka send this picture out. If I was harsh to him, I apologize. The stakes are too high for us to do kelekele.

    For those who think this is tribal, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege’s mother’s compound bordered ours at Olley Road Sapele. He is my Urhobo senator. I and his cousins and nephews stay friends. I have spoken to him on the phone before and he was super-sweet with me. It is his fight for Buhari vs Saraki that has made me cross swords with many I call family like his SA Henry Efe Duku and his younger one Progress Omo-Agege. These are my people.

    When I see ur support for Buhari or action is strong enough to derail the moves to remove him, mennnnnn, we become Sasaki Kojiro. Do not forget that in times of war a commander shoots his own troop if they threaten to retreat or do harm to their formation.

    Again, if I was harsh to Chidoka, I apologize.

    But I know I was not and I know I am right in these exchanges. The meeting was never about giving Atiku conditions to rule well but simply as a pushback for his choice of VP. Many felt entitled and used others who may not have understood the bile behind the move. You can spin it however you want. Such meetings were supposed to be secret if people did not mean to go to war with the choice. Some people aimed to fight it. Deny it all you want.

    I can now go back to what I was doing before this unnecessary distraction.

    We must change this change.

    PRESS RELEASE

    ICCA/Umunna to South-East governors opposed to Peter Obi should help Ndigbo find Nnamdi Kanu

    ·       ICCA/Umunna supports Atiku-Obi Ticket for 2019 elections.

    ·        Having Peter Obi as Vice-Presidential candidate a step in right direction.

    ·       The Buhari administration undermined Ndigbo, doesn’t deserve second tenure.

    ·       South-East governors opposed to Obi should put efforts in finding Nnamdi Kanu

    ·       Urge Ndigbo to participate in coming elections

    Toronto October 15, 2018.

    The Igbo Canadian Community Association (ICCA/Umunna) has declared total support and solidarity for the former Governor of Anambra State, Dr. Peter Obi as the Vice-Presidential Candidate and running mate to the former Vice President and presidential flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in the forthcoming general elections in 2019 describing the combination of the two former leaders as a good recipe for reconciliation, restructuring and restoration of the country to the deserved economic height as well as positioning Ndigbo towards a promising realization in the structure of leadership in Nigeria.

    In a statement issued in Toronto, Canada by the President, Chief Ugochukwu Okoro, through the Public Relations Officer, Ahaoma Kanu, the socio-cultural and pressure group said “the selection of Dr. Peter Obi as the Vice-Presidential candidate is a commendable recognition and an attempt at balancing the obvious disregard of Ndigbo in contributing to nation building and leadership affairs in Nigeria which the present administration took to an unprecedented nepotic level.

    “Since 2015 when Nigerians made a decision to elect the present government, the administration of President Muhamadu Buhari not only bred nepotism to a whole new level ever witnessed in a democracy, he used the instrument of government and security agencies to murders thousands of citizens in the country especially people from the South-East through the now infamous Operation Python dance, drove the economy of the country downhill while undermining Ndigbo in positions of leadership and provision of infrastructure. Buhari and the All Progressive Congress (APC) undermined Ndigbo with military occupation, government ordered executions and open discrimination against the South-East section of the country in his proclamations even on foreign soil. As if that is not enough, the government of Muhammadu Buhari and the APC has no regard for the judiciary and its proclamations and turned court orders to null while ensuring the disappearance of her citizens among them one of our sons and leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his aged father.Our mothers, daughters and wives were equally not spared as this present government suppressed freedom of expression and association of our women who were arrested, manhandled, sexually assaulted and imprisoned. This is some of the reasons ICCA/Umunna is throwing its weight behind the candidacy of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi as they seek to return Nigeria to the right pauth and restore the dignity of Ndigbo,” Okoro said.

    Going further, the Umunna President urged Ndigbo across the South-East and the Diaspora to ensure a complete participation in the upcoming elections to realize an inclusive change.

    “The present administration of Buhari and the APC promised a change which excluded us, we urge every Igbo person across all Igboland to participate in ensuring a change in government that includes us.”

    In reaction to the development of some governors of the South-East grievance of not being consulted by the PDP presidential candidate on his choice of running mate, Umunna said it is unfortunate that after 37 years of exclusion in the leadership of Nigeria some governors of South-East states would come out brazenly to point at non consultation as an excuse in opposing the choice of Dr. Peter Obi as running mate.

    “Inasmuch as we have the utmost respect for our leaders and hold them in high esteem, it is indeed worrisome that they have chosen to bring an issue that could have been discussed as Umunne inside our Obi to the market place. Since they decided to show their resentment openly instead of choosing other subtle avenues to have this consultation, Umunna, in telling truth to power, is pleading that they reconsider their stance as it will neither do them nor Ndigbo any good,” Okoro said.

    He described the development as unfortunate and exposes the self-seeking attitude of some of the Igbo leaders.

    “It is very unfortunate that our governors are standing shoulder to shoulder to cry in public in this issue, we would have expected them to have also come out publicly in demanding from President Muhammadu Buhari the whereabouts of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the hundreds of young Ibo men, women and children that were massacred during the operation Python Dance exercise in September 2018. We would have expected them to have set up Panels of Enquiry into what really happened during this state –sponsored exercises in their states as done by the Kaduna State government after the Shitte Muslims were killed in December 2015.”

    “We want to remind them that Ndigbo is still waiting for them as Chief-Security-Officers of the South-East states to inform us where Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and his aged father are being kept. The ICCA/Umunna will, through our outreaches in Igboland, make this part of the mandatory questions these our leaders seeking reelection have to answer for us to give them our support. We are certain as Igbo leaders that they must have felt the yearnings of the people and should, as Ndigbo, resolve this issue within the shortest time possible.’

    Five months ago Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, officially became a member of the British royal family after marrying Prince Harry at Windsor Castle.

    On Monday, the couple announced they’re expecting a baby, due in the spring of 2019. The boy or girl will be seventh in line to the throne, after Charles, the Prince of Wales, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, his three children and Harry himself.

    Despite being seventh in line, the baby is not automatically a prince or princess.

    In 1917, King George V limited titles within the British royal family, meaning Meghan and Harry’s child – who will be Queen Elizabeth II’s great-grandchild – will be too far down the line of succession.

    However, the Queen can step in, as she has with William and Catherine’s children, and overrule that decree.

    Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), a faction of Boko Haram, Monday executed Hauwa Leman, an aide worker with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), TheCable has reported.

    The terrorists also promised to keep Leah Sharibu, the Dapchi schoolgirl, as “a slave for life.”

    Meanwhile, former vice president and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has expressed sadness over the unfortunate incident.

    “I’m deeply saddened by the murder of Hauwa Leman, an ICRC aid worker, by terrorists. I implore the Federal Government to deploy every reasonable tool at its disposal to bring Leah Shuaibu and all the children in Boko Haram captivity home,” Atiku said.

    Also, Senate President Bukola Saraki has condemned the murder of Hauwa.

    “As I said on September 18, 2018, humanitarian workers, who go into troubled spots to alleviate people’s suffering are some of the most courageous and selfless people on the planet. They are not a target.

    “My colleagues and I in the Nigerian Senate remain committed to continuing working with our Armed Forces to find a lasting solution to these senseless killings by insurgents and improve our security infrastructure,” he said.

    The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday alleged that the “Presidency has directed the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to incarcerate, indefinitely,” the outgoing governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose.

    In a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary, of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP claimed that the “information at the party’s disposal and all over the social media indicate that the Presidency has put the commission on alert to arrest the governor at midnight today and detain him indefinitely.”

    PDP alleged that the directive by the “Presidency is not unconnected with the plot to use the EFCC and other security agencies to incarcerate the governor owing to his persistent criticism of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC government.”

    The statement added, “This uncompromising stands of the outgoing governor against the present
    administration was the reason Ekiti State was invaded and taken by force during the last governorship election.

    “By 12 midnight, the governor’s residence is expected to be surrounded by armed men of the EFCC under the pretense that they had information of his plot to escape. This is to achieve their plan to humiliate the governor and portray him in bad light to the public by dramatising his arrest.

    “Nigerians can recall that it was the governor who offered to submit himself to the EFCC despite the commission’s clear display of bias and partisanship as demonstrated in its various actions, especially its tweets and putting the governor on security watch-list.

    “EFCC even unprofessionally showed its bias in deriding the governor, making light of a very serious matter by mocking him and asking him to come before his tenure elapsed, which the governor declined in line with the constitutional immunity.

    “It is now beyond dispute that Governor Fayose is not a scoundrel running away from justice. Whatever the EFCC, APC, and the Presidency’s spin-doctors may say, it is also clear to everyone that Fayose is not a coward; neither is he afraid of the EFCC.

    “Fayose is prepared and ready to defend himself in the court of law. Neither the Presidency nor EFCC is a court of law. Since the EFCC said it had dusted up Fayose’s files, it should be ready to take him to court once he presents him at the agency’s office on Tuesday.

    “Governor Fayose has offered to walk to the EFCC office by himself and nothing must happen to him tonight. The PDP condemns this resort to fascism by the APC government, saying the whole world should be at alert to see another demonstration of crude disrespect for the rule of law and rights of Nigerians.”

    Mr Mohammed Babandede, Comptroller-General, Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), has said that the issuance of Nigerian Passport with 10 years validity will commence in December, 2018.

    He explained that the new passport would have features that could stand the test of time, adding that it would run concurrently with the old ones.

    “We thank President Muhammadu Buhari for approving the new passport with 10 years validity.

    “We have also repositioned and improved on our services as directed by the president,” he said.

    Babandede said NIS had also improved accessibility to visa through the introduction of Visa-on-Arrival for immigrants whose country was without an embassy.

    “We have initiated the centralization of Temporary Work Permit for immigrants who are in the country for a temporary assignment as well as made it easy for women to do change of name across the states.

    “We have also introduced forward-front-border patrol to curtail activities of smugglers and criminals within the border areas.

    “We will continue to ensure adequate security of the border and country at large,” he said.

    He said that the president had directed that NIS officers should patronize the bushes unlike the street patrol system which operated before his administration.

    In his response, Ajimobi charged NIS to ensure regular monitoring of the nation’s borders for the sustenance of peace in the country.

    Ajimobi, who was represented by his deputy, Chief Moses Adeyemo, admonished the NIS boss to initiate policies towards checking illegal immigrants into the country.

    He urged them to improve on border policing and ensure recruitment of credible people into the service.

  • Ahead of 2019 general election, former Nigerian minister, Oby Ezekwesili, has challenged President Muhamamdu Buhari, to a 20 hours debate.[Image: Obiageli_Katryn_Ezekwesili,_2.jpg]


    Oby Ezekwesili
     
    Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) presidential candidate, Oby Ezekwesili has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to a 20 hour debate to defend his achievements or lack of it.
     
    Affirming that debate by proxy should not be accepted by Nigerians, she said that those who shy away from presenting themselves before the people do not deserve to take the position of leadership.
     
    Ezekwesili further stated that nothing less than 20 hours of debate is acceptable to a country of approximately 200 million people. She said that the debate should be split in five sessions of four hours each, or four sessions of five hours each.
     
    The first debate, according to her statement, should be held within a week of official campaign start by INEC on 18 November.
     
    “It appears that there is a conspiracy of the minority to trivialize the issue of presidential debate in a bid to exempt President Muhammadu Buhari from defending his performance and presenting his plans before the Nigerian people. This is unacceptable.
     
    "The people need to know why they should vote for each of the candidates, and they need to know now,” Ezekwesili said in a statement on Sunday.
     
    “Make no mistake, the only people Nigerians want to hear from are their presidential hopefuls. Nigerians vote for presidents, and presidents are the ones who get the job done.
     
    "Vice Presidents will not take Nigeria out of poverty. So this is not the time to shortchange citizens with a Vice Presidential debate.
     
    "Nigerians are voting for top of the ticket, not VP, and they are aware that this is what matters. Anything less than a presidential debate will be considered gross disrespect for the millions of citizens we hope to lead,”  she added.
     
    The statement said that Ezekwesili has as the main thrust of her campaign, the lifting of over 80 million Nigerians out of poverty and making prosperity possible for every business, every family, and every Nigerian citizen.
     
    The former Vice President of the World Bank for Africa and 2018 Nobel Prize nominee has pledged to lead a government focused on competitiveness, productivity and economic prosperity if elected into office.

  • A man who bought a stolen phone has landed in a hot soup in Nyanya area of Abuja over the incident.[Image: prison-0.jpg]

    A Karu Grade 1 Area Court, Abuja, on Monday sentenced 18-year-old Abdulkudus Shuibu to three-month imprisonment for buying a stolen Nokia cell phone.
     
    The convict, a resident of Nyanya, Abuja, had pleaded guilty to a count of dishonestly receiving and purchasing stolen property and begged for leniency.
     
    The judge, Sani Mohammed, sentenced him to three-month imprisonment, though he also gave the convict N4,000 option of fine.
     
    Earlier, the prosecutor, Vincent Osiji, had told the court that the convict dishonestly received and purchased a stolen Nokia cell phone at the rate of N2,500.
     
    The value of the phone, property of one Suleiman Ibrahim, he said, was, however, yet to be ascertained, while the stolen phone has been recovered.
     
    Osiji said that in the course of Police investigation, the convict confessed to have committed the offence, which contravened the provisions of Section 317 of the Penal Code.

  • A man and his son who went out trying to catch some fish in a community in Delta state, have been found dead.[Image: flood-farm.jpg]
    The Uwheru/Ohoror communities of Ughelli North local government area of Delta State, at the weekend, was thrown into mourning following the death of a father and son, who died mysteriously by the ravaging flood, The Nation reports.
     
    The deceased whose names were given as Mr. Johnson Emegogoe, a motor-cycle mechanic and his second son, Mr. Benji Emegogoe were said to have gone for fishing when they met their untimely death.
     
    Narrating the incident to newsmen, one of the deceased cousins, Mr. Moses Young said the deceased had gone for fishing and until it was dark and until the following day before a search team was organized to look for them.
     
    Young said, “We cannot say what actually happened because none of us went with them, but a search party that went the following day only saw their dead bodies, but to ascertain how it happened we cannot.
     
    “What we suspected was the canoe they may have used for the fishing capsized and there was nobody there to rescue them and they probably struggled and died and this was as a result of the over flow of water.

    “This tragedy is much for us. If the incident had happened at the day time, may be someone would have walked into them and they would have been saved but what we suspected was that the incident happened in the dark when all had left the farm, hence no one could rescue them."

  • Ahead of 2019 general election, a senior advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana, has revealed why presidential candidates should listen to Fela Anikulapo-Kuti's music.[Image: Femi-falana-1.jpg]

    Activist lawyer, Mr Femi Falana SAN, on Monday advised Nigerian presidential candidates seeking office in 2019 to listen to the late legendary musician, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti’s music, to get solutions to the nation’s problems.
     
    Falana gave the advice during the 2018 Felabration tagged Fela @80: Overtaking Overtake, at the Fela debates titled: “African Leadership in the Millennium” in Lagos.
     
    He said that the late Fela had foreseen Nigeria’s problems. Falana added that Fela warned about the challenges and proffered solutions to such problems in his music before his death.
     
    Fela, who was born on October 15, 1938 and died on August 2, 1997, was the pioneer of the Afrobeat music genre and a human rights activist.
     
    Falana said, “I want most of these presidential aspirants to listen to Fela’s music very well. That’s where they can find solutions to most of our problems.
     
    “Our country is rich as Fela sang in his music, but our people are still hungry and poor; you must understand our society before you can lead us.”
     
    Falana urged young Nigerians to get organised so that the sky would be their starting point.
     
    He said that if Nigeria could get it right, the black man all over Africa would be happy.
     
    NAN reports that the 2018 Felabration, which commenced on Monday, will run through the week with performances by artists from Togo, France and Nigeria, dance competitions, among others.
     
    Felabration is an annual festival of music and arts commemorating the life and times of Nigeria’s foremost musical icon, the late Fela Anikulakpo Kuti.
     
    The idea and concept of Felabration as an annual celebration of Fela’s music, life and times, originated from his eldest child Yeni who conceived it in 1998.
     
    Currently, Felabration organised by the Felabration Organising Committee has grown into a week-long musical event in Nigeria, attracting thousands of visitors annually to the New Africa Shrine from all over the world.

  • Whilst growing up, I had heard once or twice about sons not on speaking terms with their fathers. To me, there was no greater absurdity. I loved my dad. He was my role model. I remember on graduation day back in high school when each of the graduating student was beamed on a large projector with what our aspirations were and who our role model was as well. I remember being the only one who put my father up as a role model. Let me chip this in real quick; My father is the spare the rod, spoil the child type of person. I was flogged up till my very early twenties with a strong leather belt. I was a stubborn child but he only made it worse. Once, he permanently damaged my left eye on something as fickle as borrowing a classmate's notebook to copy missed notes at home. He never for once said he was sorry. In a saner country, I could have easily sent him to prison. 

    My father distanced us from his maternal side of the family. My grandmother and my father's step sister gave my mom the hardest of times, some of which I witnessed when I was much younger. They seemed to believe my mom *jazzed my dad and that's why he wouldn't pick a second wife. They hated my mom with passion and I really didn't understand why. Fast forward to a early last year, I was away from home when I received a call from my mom saying that my dad had a daughter by another woman before they had me. She was a result of my dad cheating on my mom while they were in a relationship. My father named her after my own mother as a kind of apology. Here comes the weird part. My dad refused to send this child to school despite all of my mother's pleas. Whenever the girl called on the phone, my dad would tell her to ask her mother who her real father is and then cut off the phone. I grew up into my mid twenties thinking I was my father's first child and also hated my now dead grandmother not knowing she only had my step sister in mind while she acted the way she did. 

    I was privileged to enjoy some of the best education money can buy, same as my siblings but my father's daughter was under schooled and married early so as to have someone cater for her needs. She had the exact opposite of the life I had growing up. Her mother's family came to see her as an outcast. I feel like most of my life has been a lie. My step sister has two little boys. I can't believe my father never had the balls to talk to me, his first son about it. Even till now, he's never called me to explain himself. She calls me every now and then asking for assistance and in truth, I really can't. I feel so terrible for her. It's almost like she has no family. Our relationship is very awkward to say the least. 

    Lest I forget, my mom arranged the reunion (which I was absent from) because my dad thought she was the reason things became bad (financially) for us. He felt maybe she might have told her life's story to someone who played out a Nollywood script and jazzed his finances. This Easter, she came visiting again with her kids and I was around. We met for the first time and we exchange numbers. After her visit, she called to tell me my dad ignores her calls. It is for this reason that my contempt has grown. I have my own shortcomings as a son but I was basically lied to my whole life and my father never stepped forward to clear the air. When I try to bring it up, he brushes it right under the carpet. 



    Parents, be honest with your offspring. The littlest things can ruin whatever relationship you have with them. My dad is from a largely polygamous family. He's got step brothers and sisters on both sides of his parents but no siblings of the same parents. His family is terribly dysfunctional and I prided myself all my life that my dad didn't go the same path. Little did I know, I was wrong.

  • I met this girl some time ago at a supermarket were she worked. We became friends and did chat once in a blue mood. So recently we planned to hangout and we agreed on a day.


    On that day I told her were to meet me because I didn't want to pick her up. My first disappointment was when I noticed she came with a friend but I didn't let that bother me because I felt since its our first time outing, she probably didn't want to come alone for security reasons. 

    However these two girls just messed up big time. First they ordered for two plates of fried rice with chicken that was bigger than my head lol. Though I felt that was so stupid for them to do such but I just ignored and was taking my wine. All of a sudden these girls started complaining that the food is this and that. They put this and that in the food and they don't like it. There is garlic in the chicken and they don't like the smell of garlic. Asin I got pissed inside of me but I just tried to be a gentleman by smiling it all off.


    When they said they couldn't finish the food I then told the waitress to help me put them in take away packs and I paid. Can you imagine these girls started saying they can't take away left over food that I should just tell them to keep it. This left over they are talking about can reach two people as dinner. I just took the packs and told them I will be back I just want to drop it in my car then use the toilet. 

    Trust me I just left them there and zoomed off. After few minutes she called and I just said I got an emergency call so I rushed out. The stupid girl was upset saying I didn't tell them and they don't have transport back home. For my mind they were even lucky I paid for their food and drinks they wasted.
    As usual she has been sending me messages calling me all sort of names but I no fit shout.

    Abeg guys was I wrong in any way?

  • The chairman of the Reformed All Progressives Congress, R-APC, has told millions of Nigerians to vote out the president in 2019 as he lists his greatest offense.[Image: Buba-Galadima.jpg]




    While speaking at the unveiling of a group called Enyimba Progressives Association, EPA, in Abuja over the weekend, elder statesman, Buba Galadima, said Nigerians must all join hands to send President Muhammadu Buhari, back home in 2019 general election. 
     
    According to Vanguard, Galadima said the president has grossly under-performed, asking the people to give the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar a chance to put the country on a growth pedestal once again, adding that the greatest offence of President Buhari is his failure to secure lives, property and bring food in the homes of Nigerians. 
     
    The president's critic who regretted ever marketing Buhari before the world and supporting him to become president in 2015, said he would tender apology to the people through the world renowned media outfits.   
     
    Galadima, who refuted the insinuations that Buhari clan impacted on his performance, asked Nigerians to join hands and vote Buhari out next year, and  enjoined them to try Atiku who has pledged to perform better, saying that if he (Atiku) fails as well, he should be shown the way out in 2023. 
     
    He said: “I stand before you to tell you if there is any body that brought Buhari into politics, it is either me or us. Today, I will stand here to tell you that we should all put our hands together, strengthen ourselves and throw him out through the ballot box. 

    ‘’I can tender public apology on BBC or CNN. Of course, if there is any person that promoted him from January 2002 to date, I can hardly be number two if I am not number one. 

    Buhari’s greatest offence, by Galadima 
     
    “Why must he go? The answer is simple. He has been accused of so many crimes. Some of them are true, some of them may not even be true. I can tell you that.
    “But greatest fault he has is that in my religion, Islam, the leader is everybody’s father. During the Kalim Umar reign as the leader of Islam across the world, the man cannot sleep in the night. 

    “He would go around in the town, trying to find out who is hungry. And God says if an animal sleeps with hunger during your reign, you are held responsible, let alone human beings. 

    ‘’The responsibility is entirely on his head and he doesn’t give a damn. For me, that is his greatest offence. 

    “Therefore, if there is no compassion, people are being killed, maimed, communities are being wiped out, disasters are happening, he never gave a damn for two and half years. He couldn’t even visit the people to commiserate with them. What kind of a leader is that?   

    “So, the man is bad not because he is Hausa or Fulani. Muhammadu Buhari is bad. So, he should go and rest. Why I am saying so is that there are a lot of Hausa and Fulani people that are being killed, may be sleeping with hunger. Hunger, poverty, killing know no bounds. Asks Nigerians to try Atiku, throw him out if he  under-performs 

    “For now, my group has not taken a position as to who to support. I supported Kwankwaso and I want to assure that of all the candidates, forget about the primaries, he is the person that has got tentacles across the country. But the issue is that Any Body But Buhari, ABB. Let’s try Atiku. 

    If he doesn’t perform, let’s throw him out. Obasanjo doesn’t like Atiku but he has said he is better than Buhari. So let’s make progress.”

  • Millions of Nigerians have been warned by the Nigerian Optometrics over their unconventional way of treating conjunctivitis, popularly known as 'apollo.'[Image: conjuctivities-2.jpg]

    The Nigerian Optometric Association on Monday warned the general public against the use of urine, breast milk, and acid, among other unconventional stuff, when infected with conjunctivitis, popularly known as ‘apollo.’
     
    President of the association, Dr. Ozy Okonokhua, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Monday.
     
    Okonokhua frowned at such practices, saying it is harmful to the eyes.
     
    He, however, urged the populace to seek help from trained and licensed professional optometrists when infected with any eye problem.
     
    “Apollo is a virus that is self-limiting, which means it cannot be cured with local medicine or self-medication.

    “It is a viral infection enhanced by dryness more common during the dry season and the bacteria infection, which is secondary, is best treated with antibiotics,” he said.
     
    Okonokhua further advised the populace to imbibe the habit of regular hand washing to avoid contracting viral and bacterial infection of the eye.
     
    NAN reports that ‘conjunctivitis’ in medical parlance or ‘apollo’ in local parlance is inflammation of the conjunctiva, a thin, filmy membrane that covers the white portion of the eyes.
     
    Conjunctiva, which produces mucous to coat and lubricate the surface of the eye, contains fine blood vessels that can be seen on close inspection.
     
    Similarly, Dr Njong Onugu, Head of Eye care Unit, Public Health Department of Health and Human Service Secretariat, FCTA, identified apollo as a common eye problem that affects people of all age and has no cure.
     
    Onugu said that healthcare workers have high risk of exposure to viruses that could cause viral conjunctivitis.
     
    The eye care specialist, however, urged the public to maintain proper hygiene by washing their hands thoroughly before and after applying eye drops on infected persons.
     
    She identified some causes of irritation of the eye layer to include allergies in the environment which could be due to air pollution, smoke, pollen from trees and grass.
     
    According to her, when the conjunctiva becomes irritated or inflamed, the blood vessels which supply it enlarge and become more prominent, causing the eye to turn red.
     
    “Symptoms include pinkness or redness in the eye, inflamed inner eyelids, blurred vision, sandy or scratchy feeling in the eye, pus, mucous or watery discharge from the eye.

    “You must avoid sharing of towels, cosmetics or eye-drops with others that are affected as this can predispose you to it.

    “Infected children should be distanced from schools, camps and swimming pools until they are cured,” Onugu advised.

  • More endorsements have continued to roll in for Atiku and his running-mate, Obi ahead of the 2019 presidential election.[Image: obib.JPG]

    Chairman of the South East Senate Caucus, Enyinnaya Abaribe and senator representing Edo Central, Clifford Ordia, as well as the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) have thrown their weight behind the candidacy of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, and his choice of running mate, Peter Obi, ahead of the 2019 general election.
     
    Atiku announced a former governor of Anambra State, Obi, as his running mate, last week. The announcement has generated mixed reactions, with South East governors, in the forefront of opposition to Obi’s nomination.
     
    The governors argued that they were not consulted before Atiku made Obi’s nomination public.

    However, Abaribe, has described Obi’s selection as a right step in the right direction and has described Obi as an embodiment of discipline and positive attributes in good governance.
     
    In a statement released in Abuja, yesterday, Abaribe said with Obi’s choice, as Atiku’s running mate, the party has wrapped up victory in 2019.
     
    “Mr Obi’s widely acknowledged good track record in infrastructural development and economic reforms as governor of Anambra State, remains an eloquent testimony of what service delivery and good governance is all about.

    “The ticket of the duo; of former vice president Atiku Abubakar and Mr. Obi, represents the finest choice available and one that reflects the high pitch push by Nigerians; for total economic and political reforms.

     

    “The present hopeless situation of fear, despondency and hunger in the land, which is occasioned by a seemingly rudderless and clueless government requires experienced and steady hands in the saddle. Of course, the Atiku/Obi ticket presents that radical choice capable of pulling the country out of her present horrendous predicament,” he said.
     
    On his part, senator Ordia reiterated that PDP will win next year’s presidential election and called on Nigerians, at all levels, to vote massively for the PDP.
     
    “PDP is already coasting home to victory even before the elections. Everyone can see that the current government has nothing to campaign with. With Atiku and Obi, we are certain that if the elections are free and fair, the PDP will win.

    “The victory of the PDP will not only end with the presidential elections. PDP will win more governorship seats and have the majority in both chambers of the National Assembly. Nigerians must be vigilant and ensure that their mandate is not stolen in 2019.”
     
    Also, news of Obi’s emergence as Atiku’s running mate received resounding acceptance; even among pro-Biafra groups.
     
    In line with this, the Uchenna Madu-led MASSOB has congratulated Obi, although, he said MASSOB did not believe in the Nigerian project nor does it believe in being partisan in Nigerian politics.
     
    “We acknowledge the acceptance of Mr. Peter Obi by millions of Nigerians, through the eruption of joyous celebration which greeted his selection as a vice presidential candidate.

    “MASSOB, as a major stakeholder in Igbo affairs, shall not derail in any national interest that will benefit Ndigbo in Nigeria. We’re still consulting and discussing with our Diaspora groups, and other pro-Biafra groups, concerning our final position on next year’s general elections,” Madu declared.
     
    He said MASSOB had earlier declared that President Muhammadu Buhari would be the last president of Nigeria “and, we still believe that 2019 political crisis and our demand for referendum will usher in Biafra, Oduduwa and Arewa nations.”

  • A pastor has landed in serious trouble after he disappeared with a church members's car after he had asked for prayers.[Image: prison-0.jpg]


    A 46-year-old pastor, Joseph Lawson, on Monday in Lagos, appeared at an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court, charged with the theft of a car valued at N1.2 million.
     
    According to the prosecutor, ASP Clifford Ogu, the accused committed the offence on Oct. 1 at Oko-Oba, Lagos.
     
    He said that the accused ran away with a car belonging to Mr Chikwukadibia Udeh.
     
    “The complainant approached the accused for prayers, the accused told him that God told him that he should bring his car and the document for prayers.

    “The complainant obeyed and after the accused collected the car and its document, he was nowhere to be found.

    “Efforts made by the complainant to recover his car proved unsuccessful and the case was reported to the police,’’ the prosecutor said.
    Ogu said that when the accused was later arrested, he claimed to have sold the vehicle.
     
    The offence contravened Section 287 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
     
    The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Section carries three years jail term for stealing.
     
    The accused, who resides at Surulere, Lagos, entered a `not guilty’ plea to the charge levelled against him.
     
    The Magistrate, Mr J.A Adegun granted bail to the accused in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties as part of the bail condition.
     
    Adegun said that the sureties should be gainfully employed and show evidence of two years tax payment to the Lagos State Government.
     
    The case was adjourned until Oct. 29, for hearing.

  • After being exposed for allegedly taking bribe, Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has dragged the publisher of the video to court.[Image: bribe-taking.jpg]

    The Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has filed a criminal case against DAILY NIGERIAN and its publisher, Jaafar Jaafar, for defamation of character.
     
    Earlier yesterday, the newspaper published exclusive video showing Mr Ganduje receiving bribe from a contractor.
     
    The video, which generated public rebuke, has been authenticated by graphic experts before publishing by the newspaper.
     
    In a statement by the state commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba, the government debunked the allegation, saying the video was “cloned” to implicate the governor in the bribery scandal.

    “Kano state government has decided to file a criminal case against an online publication Daily Nigerian and its publisher on defamation of character after it released a clone and doctored video footage mischievously portraying Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje involved in an inappropriate conduct,” Mr Garba said.

    “The Office of the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice is challenging the implausible and eccentric posting of the cloned video that went viral in a court of law considering the gravity of the caricature, which indicates the extent to which mischievous elements can go to discredit public figures by wielding non-existent scandals against them.

    “A mere observation of the cloned video clearly shows that the video is doctored and disjointed with no material facts or evidance to prove the allegations, other than a callous attempt to tarnish the hard earned image of the office and the person of the Governor.”

     
     
    Mr Ganduje therefore dismissed allegations of receiving gratification of $5Million or any amount whatsoever from any person or body, describing DAILY NIGERIAN publisher as blackmailer.

    “It is important to draw the attention of the general public to the fact that the alleger is a serial blackmailer and extorter. We are also aware that the hidden motive is to reduce the popularity of the Governor and consequently affect the anticipated quantum of APC votes from Kano in the 2019 general elections.

    “While the state government is taking the legal action, we wish to assure the good people of Kano that His Excellency will remain focus and continue with laudable programmes that will add value to the lives of the people of Kano State. We also call on the general public, especially members of the APC to remain calm and always be law abiding,” the statement added.
     
    In reaction to the statement, DAILY NIGERIAN said it stands by its story, saying the videos were neither “cloned” nor doctored to blackmail the governor.
     
    The newspaper publisher, Jaafar Jaafar, also said the paper is ready to prove its case before the court.

  • Joe Igbokwe believes President Muhammadu Buhari is coasting to victory in next year's election regardless of the seeming challenges.[Image: Joe%20Igbokwe2.JPG]

    Joe Igbokwe, the Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, has declared that there is no vacancy in Aso Rock in 2019, insisting that all the presidential candidates put together will not be able to unseat President Muhammadu Buhari.
     
    According to Igbokwe, the ruling APC would not lose sleep over the emergence of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the main opposition party, stressing that the contest was going to be between integrity versus corruption.
     
    Igbokwe told newsmen in Lagos that Nigerians cannot trust Atiku because of the many cases of corruption hanging around his neck.
     
    He said, “Let me put it this way, all the presidential candidates put together, both the serious and the unserious, will not be able to unseat Buhari.

    “The contest is going to be between integrity versus corruption. And if that is going to be the parameter to judge, it means that there is no vacancy in Aso Rock. If corruption and integrity were to be in contest, then integrity must win. If integrity must win, therefore, Aso Rock is not vacant for now.

    “There is no meeting point between light and darkness. We cannot trust Atiku with the keys of the national treasury given his antecedent. I don’t know whether you have watched Obasanjo’s video on Atiku.

    “If there is anybody that knows Atiku very well, that person must be Obasanjo because they worked together for eight years. Obasanjo said some Americans came probably from FBI and said that they wanted to investigate some Nigerians and Atiku was one of them.

    “After that, Obasanjo was also inclusive, but they couldn’t find anything on him. Meanwhile, on Atiku, there was a damning report. And given what Obasanjo knows about the findings of those people, he said that God would not forgive him if he supports Atiku. If Obasanjo says that kind of thing, then we cannot trust Atiku with the keys of the national treasury.

    “Another point is what played out in Port Harcourt at the PDP national convention. It was a bazaar. It was an audacious and thunderous celebration of corruption, where dollars were used with reckless abandon to buy delegates’ votes. We cannot have that kind of person in the saddle. His wealth is questionable. Also remember that PDP told Nigerians that they had repented and pleaded that they should be given another chance.”
