2018, THE YEAR OF VOTE FOR ME

Published by:

As politicians begin to jostle for your vote again this New Year with several grandiose promises, such as I would provide free education, water, give you electricity, and increase your salaries and allowances, ask them to give account of what they have done with the mandate you gave to them.

The season of open store rooms is here again, where politicians are ready to lavish money on the electorates in return for their political support. This period of electioneering would experience uncanny humility and generosity from politicians. Now you would begin to see politicians in market places roasting corn and drinking akamu with children in their classes. They would even carry hoe to farm with farmers. The gimmick of politicians is never ending.

Unfortunately, after voting for them, they would disappear, never to return to fulfill their promises, only to be seen driving with a retinue of escorts in convoy. Even if they splash water on you, they would never come down to apologize. As for traffic, politicians are the worst offenders; they never obey traffic rules, choking innocent road users with their long convoys and sirens. These are the same persons that came to you begging to represent you.

Are Nigerians scum of the earth?

Published by:

NIGERIANS SCUM OF THE EARTH

Nigerians seem like scum of the earth these days, treated without respect nor dignity. Libya bores that reflection. The situation in that African troubled country where Nigerians are sold as merchandise is born out of several causes and actions. From the destruction of Libya by the West to the immigration conspiracy of European countries and the inaction of African leaders.

According to some social observers, Nigeria is not the only country in Africa, but yet it has the greatest migrant population outside its territory. It is believed that in Libya alone, there are over 500,000 Nigerian migrants locked up in detention camps.

Many people have argued that the push factors of poverty, massive unemployment, poor health care, lack of access to education, boko haram, herdsmen attacks and the plight of Bakassi returnees have continue to expose Nigerians to precarious situations outside its borders.

The social inaction of Nigerian leaders have also prompted her young population to seek alternatives for better life, since they cannot find peace and justice in their beloved country. Several of them that have been interviewed have reiterated their determination to reach Europe at all cost, even if it means putting their lives at risk over and over again.

Corrupt Nigerians politicians are to be blamed for what is happening to Nigerians in Libya.The selling of Nigerians as merchandise in Libya is the repercussion of their senseless embezzlement of state funds and mismanagement of political power.

In actual sense, they are the ones that have plunged the nation into this mess and made it a spectacle of ridicule in the eyes of the world. They have turned Nigeria into a minnows and a beggarly country.

The ongoing happenings is a clarion call for youths in Nigeria to take their destiny in their own hands.

STOP MURDEROUS WOMEN TODAY !!!

Published by:

The rise of murderous women over alleged suspicion of infidelity of their spouses has got a lot of people talking. The keys acts surrounding these killings have shown that these men never notice when it is time to leave the marriage, only to fall to the cruel hands of their attackers.

Must we always go physical with people, or even spiritual if we feel hurt or offended by a loved one? I thought we have it in our spiritual books that vengeance is of God. These days, it is no longer so, as some hot tempered women are quick to seek justice on their own terms. This has left a scourge of murderous women in our society.


I ran into some hilarious suggestions on how to reduce the rate of love related killings.
Try to develop the habit of deleting messages as you read because it will save you from untimely death.
Wives should be medically examined routinely to assess if they are mentally stable.
Use your mother’s name in place of saving your girl friend’s number in your phone.
Ensure you change your phone password regularly. Continue reading
