Admin: pls share this story with our dear members, I need their comments ...: DID I DO WRONG??? One evening last week, my wife and I were getting into bed. Well, the passion starts to heat up, and she eventually says, "I don't feel like it, I just Read more ... want you to hold me." I said, "WHAT?!! What was that?!" So she says the words that every husband on the planet dreads to hear... "You're just not in touch with my emotional needs as a woman enough for me to satisfy your physical needs as a man." She responded to my puzzled look by saying, "Can't you just love me for who I am and not what I do for you in the bedroom?" Realizing that nothing was going to happen that night, I went to sleep. The very next day I opted to take the day off of work to spend time with her. We went out to a nice lunch and then went shopping at a big department store. I walked around with her while she tried on several different very expensive outfits. She couldn't decide which one to take, so I told her we'd just buy them all. She wanted new shoes to compliment her new clothes, so I said, "Lets get a pair for each outfit." We went on to the jewellery department where she picked out a pair of diamond earrings. She was so excited. She must have thought I was one wave short of a shipwreck. I started to think she was testing me because she asked for a tennis bracelet when she doesn't even know how to play tennis. I think I threw her for a loop when I said, "That's fine, honey." She was so excited. Smiling with anticipation, she finally said, "I think this is all dear, let's go to the cashier." I could hardly contain myself when I blurted out, "No honey, I don't feel like it." Her face just went completely blank as her jaw dropped, "WHAT?" I then said, "Honey! I just want you to HOLD this stuff for a while. You're just not in touch with my financial needs as a man enough for me to satisfy your shopping needs as a woman." And just when she had this look like she was going to kill me, I added, "Why can't you just love me for who I am and not for the things I buy you?" Do you agree?

Willy HIV+ teacher weeps in court AN HIV positive teacher at Gwanda’s Sitezi Primary School wept in court as she narrated how her husband continues to have extra-marital affairs. An emotional Eunice Emelang Marupi, 40, who continuously wept in court, to Read more ... ld magistrate Sheila Nazombe on Tuesday that she wanted a protection order against her “abusive and cheating” husband Chemistry Ndiweni who, she alleged, sometimes threatens to take her back to her parents’ home. Marupi claimed that her husband’s infidelity has become the talk of their neighbourhood. “I am now living in fear of my husband and every time he comes home I develop a headache and even when I try to touch him. He threatens to assault and kill me and sometimes threatens to take me back to my parents’ home. “My husband sometimes wakes up in the middle of the night to visit his girlfriends. I have told him to change his ways but he doesn’t and the whole village is talking about his affairs. Now I cannot live in my house because his girlfriends have planted things in my house so that I don’t live there. I am now staying at the clinic with my sister,” said Marupi. She said she usually develops sores on her private parts but her husband would demand sex with her despite the pain. She said one of his girlfriends, Simangele sometimes openly brags about sleeping with Ndiweni. The accused denied the allegations levelled against him and urged his wife not to listen to “jealous rumour mongers”. “The main issue here is about our HIV status. She doesn’t want to go to hospital but prefers visiting traditional healers,” he said. Magistrate Nazombe refused to grant the protection order saying Marupi had failed to support her application. The magistrate said the two should seek the help of pastors or family members to resolve their matrimonial problems. Marupi was ordered to seek proper medical attention instead of blaming other people for her ailments while Ndiweni was advised to show love to his wife.#stolen

The ANIMAL TALK America's unjustified hatred of dandelions is killing a link in the food chain. Honeybees are starving into extinction, and there must be laws to protect them and the flowers that feed them. This starts with dandelions, which only last 4 Read more ... -6 weeks in the spring, and a few weeks in the fall; mowing and sprays should be banned until they go to seed. We have endless fields, roads and lawns, but where are all the flowers? There is a universal language between all living beings (cool!) Unfortunately I don't know it well, but can share a few ‘words’ I have learned from animals: 1. Blinking their eyes and/or looking away and back again: this means they are non-threatening (and look for you to unconsciously do the same.) 2. Looking at you, then at something, then looking back at you: they are trying to tell you about what they are looking at. 3. Running away (especially if they're wild) after you helped them somehow, then stop and look back at you, before running off again: this is them saying "thank you!" We were walking in a field once and found a dog trapped in a hole, who got hysterical when he heard us talking and coming closer. At first, I was scared to go in to get him because he seemed so wild, but he wouldn't let go of my eyes, so I cautiously climbed down. And he was beside himself—I could barely hold him enough to hand him out. When he was out, he ran around the pit and us twice at full speed (maybe he didn't want to be rude running off so quick) then took off for home at the same top speed, stopping suddenly in mid tracks to turn around and look at us—and I knew he was saying thanks. I couldn't help but laugh and tell him to get home, which he did! 4. Eyebrow arched up (or head cocked) is the same as us: question/curiosity. 5. Forehead pulled back—this means accepted, resigned ‘ok’ attitude (even if they don’t agree), humility, or on guard (from fear, humility.) 6. Ears standing up: attention; Ears pulled back: aggression, on guard 7. Tail wagging: happy; Tail between legs: scared (and will protect itself.) 8. Mouth open and “smiling”: they are happy and are smiling! 9. Tongue hanging out: they are cooling their tongue, which cools their body, like a cold drink cools our mouth, which cools our body. 10. Nervous, timid: owners use too much authority or too overprotective; never letting the animal make decisions or mistakes to learn from (same in humans.) 11. A cry for help is a universal cry for help. 12. Staring: threatened, or preparing to attack. Also getting/wanting someone's immediate attention to what they’re staring at. 13. Looks down, can't look you in the eyes, shoulders and eyes downcast: the animal (or human) is sorry or timid (expecting unwarranted criticism or punishment) or even a broken spirit. 14. Animals talk with their eyes, as do great men; cons deceive with their eyes, animals don’t. 15. All living beings are born with instincts (especially wild animals and highly intuitive people who can 'feel' things); and instinctively know when there is danger. I once worked in a store in Phoenix that had a big parrot in the back office, who liked to sit on top of his cage during the day. A huge, homeless man had recently started going through our trash looking for food (which 25-30 years ago was uncomprehendable to me) –so I, so unfortunately, didn't understand or have any pity for (how things have changed.) He was mentally ill (again something new to me, being from small-town Midwest); had a vicious hate for women (but would snap to a military attention in front of a man); and, we found out, had just been released and let out on the streets to fend for himself (like Charles Manson.) One day when I was in the back office working alone through lunch, he came in through the alley door. He had a fixed, manic blank stare, coming straight for me; but I didn't have time to blink or be alarmed, when all hell broke loose. The parrot went nuts—he started screeching and screeching as loud as he could (which was loud!), flapping his wings and ready to attack. I was even more surprised and alarmed at this, but the screeching broke the man's attention (insanity, senility and head-injuries can't focus or hold their attention), and he started screaming and waving his arms at the bird, yelling at it to mind it's own business, as he stormed out. And all of this happened within 30 seconds, and all before I even knew what was going on. But the parrot knew and reacted instantly, and I believe, saved my life. Thank you, Picasso. (They sold Picasso to some stranger, which made me so sad because he loved the owner so much—he would waddle over to his desk and lay on his back and let him scratch his tummy, when no one, not even myself (even though he saved my life) could get near him. How cold and ruthless our society is to buy and sell animals like slaves—kept in chains and cages to entertain us until we tire of them.) The homeless man was taken into custody again, and for the first time I saw that, for whatever tragic reasons this was where some people really belonged (even though he and Charles Manson obviously didn't receive any help from the government, American Medical or Legal Society, or even from us, the people, who are ignorant and blind to any kind of life that we never have lived or seen.) I also now shamefully realize that this man wore a green coat that many Viet Nam vets wore (I was only eight when we were in Viet Nam); and am filled with disgust and repulsion that many of our vets have been abandoned. And we're in another Viet Nam, telling Iraq how to run their Country when we can't even take care of our own “…All wars are started by people who condemn other countries, but never take care of their own...” —Rudy Giuliani "Jail and mental hospitals are failed societies: No one is born bad—no one.” Universal Laws—There are basic needs and instincts in all living beings, which include food, rest, warmth, security, survival, fellowship and freedom. But the most misunderstood part of our universal laws/language is since animals and insects don’t have written laws, their laws come from superiority and respect. So when two dogs fight (over whatever basic need), let them fight! (unless, of course, it's constant and one is a bully which needs corrected; including that he may be bored or needs attention, the same as in children.) In all of nature, most fights last only 2-3 minutes, until one gets respect. For example there were two dogs on leashes next door, one in back and one (bigger but younger) next to my garage. When the older one in back was let loose to run, he immediately came running over to me. This instantly created such a jealous or protective instinct in the younger one that he actually broke his chain to get to the dog. Needless to say, it was a loud, vicious fight right next to me, but when the owner came screaming for them to stop—I yelled at him to leave them alone! And, against his better judgment (or maybe because I was the one standing right next to the two fighting dogs), he stopped and watched. And sure enough, one came out the winner--the older dog kicked the bigger, younger one’s butt in two minutes flat--without any blood on either dog or myself. I then calmly talked to each one (not petting them), looking at both when I spoke to them, telling them “thank you...you did good...ok...it's over...ok…thank you...you did good... ok..." (I love being fought over, ha ha.) I explained all of this to the owner, who was still in disbelief that I was not only right, but had stood (but not interfering) right next to the fight—that sounded so vicious! Since both dogs were loose, they started enjoying their freedom in the yard, and as we talked, the older dog ran up to the owner. This must have again looked threatening to the younger dog, who came charging over once again. However, this time, the dogs did not immediately get into a fight, but stood tense, nose-to-nose at this guy’s feet. I repeated to let them go, but since I was making the calls, I told him that he may want to take a step back—which immediately sent them into another loud, vicious (half minute) fight. It was over much more quickly, the younger dog had respect, no one was hurt and if these two dogs were left free, would have become the best of friends. It is very important to note, that this could have never happened if either dog was tied (or caged), that the one tied would have to fight until it was dead or the other one was dead or gone (there can be no respect for someone in a restrained area—another law of the universe.) But, the older dog knows this, and usually doesn’t want anyone else’s area, so the older dog will gladly take the long way around another dog’s leash. Unfortunately, puppies don’t know this and from being so happy and trusting, they learn this lesson the hard way--as they must (in most cases, an older dog will terrify (and even nip, but not hurt, the puppy just enough to teach him a good lesson, and let the puppy escape, once.) And unfortunately, in this free country, animals are housed and treated like we house and treat our criminals (denial of freedom in a jail/cage, bin, house, aquarium or on a leash), and they don’t get to go through these universal meetings, rituals and laws. Fellowship, Fun, Social Contact—This is especially crucial in children, but just as important in adults for well life and being. For example, human babies or animals with cold, absent or unhappy parent/s or owners that don’t give a child enough love or attention (do your eyes light up when your child enters the room?), or teach them how to laugh, play or have confidence: become withdrawn, autistic, pathological or develop a numb (listless) or an aggressive attitude (negative attention being better than being alone.) This includes adults after retirement (going from a 440v life to a 110v life which many can't run on), prisoners and the homeless who are bored, lonely, without purpose, social contact or friends—who see their bodies and minds break down, and senility, Alzheimer’s and mental illness set in. (Social contact and being happy are crucial for well-being.) Ironically, public people who are constantly surrounded by crowds but who must always wear a mask; or people who charm or need everyone to love them best (always acting or performing), often become unable to tell what is real or a play, and too, pay the highest price of all (R. Reagan being one example.) This basic need is the same in animals—goldfish will learn to follow or play with your finger on the glass and will even figure out a game with you (all people and animals learn to play); or an insect or wasp that you feed sugar to (trapped in your home in the winter) will watch or hover closer and closer, interested in what you do (opposite ends of evolution, but the same basic needs.) I use to dog sit for a family that purchased an invisible fence/collar. I will never forget a neighbor dog coming over, and after the normal ritual and introduction, they started playing and having lots of fun. Then when the other dog ran out of the invisible fence and looked back waiting for (Jake) to follow, I saw Jake stop, but wanted to play so badly that he (to my horror) walked slowly through the electric fence. I could actually see the current ripple through every part of his body. The expression on his face was even worse, but I certainly was not going to yell or stop him after he had gone that far and wanted to play that bad. (And of course he came home after he was done playing.) Freedom—Our country killed and died for freedom (and still is), and yet we cage and tie and control other living beings? If your stupid American vet says your dog inherited hip problems, let the dog run (and run) for a few weeks, and see how soon this hip problem disappears! Better yet, why don’t you spend 1-5 in your dogs (or goldfish’s) space, and see how your legs feel. If you don't have room to run (acreage in ratio to size and weight), or you tie or cage your animals—you're not smart enough to have animals (or kids); and your life is cut out like a paper doll, doing what's always been done without thought. (“Blending without offending or defending”: the true meaning of communism.) Federal prisoners complain about living and sleeping next to their toilet—but American livestock live and eat in their waste up to their knee? Mutual Exchange is the law of the Universe, and the way to make things right with the world is to teach the world from your mistakes and how to keep them from ever happening again; and lessons and solutions you've learned. (Teaching the world to not cage, tie or fence innocent animals is a good start...) However, long term prisoners and animals, and abused or controlled/ confined children that have had their social and survival skills restricted or stripped, are like an abandoned animal who will do anything to eat and get back to their cage/jail where, despite all costs, there is food and either safety or a known danger (the same as Charles Manson and the mental patient mentioned above.) However, in a pet stores at night, the animals must truly survive on their own—in prison without guards... "Now tell me again. What's the difference between cages and jails?" "Jails (and cages) are a failed society." (No one is born bad, no one.) Teaching—Teaching and supervision is a necessary, crucial part of animal ownership and parenting. You teach your kids not to play in the streets, so you must teach your animals the same thing. Treat all living beings, animals and kids under your (rule) and care with kindness, letting them make decisions and mistakes without ridicule, praising them for every right step no matter how small and how many others were wrong. And the best way for mankind to do this, is to take your time to grow up and learn, before you have kids or pets. This means learning about eating and starving; being warm and being cold; being safe and being scared; companionship and loneliness (the first time will bring you to your knees); being rich, being poor and being middleclass; and being free and being in jail—especially for something you never did wrong (animals are imprisoned without a trial.) "Who put man above God's other creations? Religion?" Maybe if seniors cared for animals in shelters (for purpose and pay; and for fellowship for the seniors and the animals); and everyone stopped purchasing pets and lobsters at Wal-Mart—maybe America will truly be a free country, instead of a controlling dictated ‘Christian’ nation. --jl'04

In the summer of 2013, the Australian government took Japan to the ICJ, the principal judicial arm of the United Nations, in a bid to expose the true nature Japanese scientific research programme under which it has previously killed over 7,000 in the Antarctic region. For despite an international whaling moratorium in force since 1986, Japan continues to catch whales in the Antarctic under the 1946 treaty that allows unlimited whaling for scientific research. Yet critics say this is just a smokescreen and they are really being hunted for their meat, which is eaten by many Japanese consumers who consider it a delicacy.

Special forces capture B’Haram leader, kill 70 insurgents MARCH 22, 2014 BY FIDELIS SORIWEI 73 Comments Boko Haram members The campaign against insurgents in the North- East intensified with the capture of a top leader of Boko Haram and the killing Read more ... of about 70 insurgents at the sect’s stronghold in Gwoza Hills, Borno State. Saturday PUNCH investigations revealed that the leader was arrested on Thursday evening while he was trying to flee the bombarded Gwoza Hills with some black Toyota Land Cruiser sports utility vehicle in his escort. It was learnt that the Special Forces captured him alive and flew him immediately out of Borno State to Abuja for interrogation in one of the military formations in Abuja. A source, who confided in our correspondent, said that the arrest of the man suspected to be one of the topmost commanders of the sect (if not the leader), had triggered anxiety among security agents in Borno State. Security officials were of the view that the captured Boko Haram leader might be a very key person to the operation of the sect for him to have such a massive and luxurious escort comprising Toyota Land Cruiser vehicles. The source said, “On Thursday, soldiers arrested a top member of the Boko Haram around the Gwoza Hills after the battle of Wednesday night when troop took over the hills. “The Boko Haram member must be a very high ranking member of the group if not the head because he had several Toyota Land Cruiser jeeps in his escort when he was captured. “Another thing is that they didn’t want anybody to know his identity; the commanders immediately flew the man to Abuja; as we are talking, the man is being interrogated there. A highly placed security source confirmed the arrest of the Boko Haram leader but would not make any further comment on the issue. Investigations further revealed that troops killed over 70 insurgents at Bita community in Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State and Bama headquarters of Bama Local Government Area of Borno State. The insurgents were said to have been killed in two different gun duels with troops at Bita and Bama where Armoured Personnel Carriers and military tanks were fully deployed for the combat on Thursday. Investigation revealed that the soldiers attacked the insurgents when they were moving to launch an attack on Bita community a day after troops overran their Gwoza Hills enclave on Wednesday. The source said that some soldiers sustained gunshot wounds and were being treated at a hospital in Maiduguri. It was learnt that some other insurgents were killed also on Thursday evening on their way to Bama after the first encounter which resulted in the killing of over 40 members of the sect. It was gathered that the special forces waited for the convoy of the insurgents on their way to Bama when an intelligence report was received that they (the insurgents) were on their way to launch another attack in Bama. A security source said that the insurgents were moving in 15 trucks loaded with fighters when they ran into the ambush of the troops. The source said that the troops destroyed seven of the trucks which caught fire and killed about 30 of the insurgents.” However, it was stated that the insurgents escaped with eight of the vehicles in the convoy. When our correspondent contacted the Director of Defence Information, Maj. Gen. Chris Olukolade, he confirmed the deployment of APCs and military tanks but asked to be given more time to confirm the capture of the Boko Haram commander and those killed in the two battles. “That APCs and military tanks were deployed is no news but you have to give me some time to confirm this story from the relevant places,” he said. However, Olukolade said that the troops arrested a middle-aged Cameroonian who served as the arms courier for the sect. He said that the arrest of the Cameroonian led to the discovery of a large cache of arms and ammunition which was hidden in the premises of a burnt church. Olukolade said that weapons recovered from the insurgents in the premises of the church in Kalabalge Local Government Area of Borno State included anti-aircraft guns, rocket-propelled guns, other brands of machine guns and thousands of various calibres of rounds of ammunition. He said that the Cameroonian led troops on a cordon and search operation to a hideout where a terrorist was captured. He was silent on the rank of this particular terrorist whose singular arrest featured in his news statement.

Azzaman Benue liberation Alliance (BLA) press briefing MARCH 22 2014 NUJ HOUSE, UTAKO –ABUJA By Prof. Tor Iorapuu (Patron) Bar. Mike Utsaha & Ene Edeh The objective of this important Press Conference is to add our voice to already existing infor Read more ... mation before the Federal Government, the Nigerian public space and the entire world, relating to the persistent attacks on Benue people and their ancestral homes over the years. The Benue Liberation Alliance is particularly scandalized that with all the first hand information before the Federal government, very little action has been taken in terms of providing adequate security and protection of lives and properties of the people of Benue. The Benue Liberation Alliance wonders that if a state with an Air Force Tactical Command Base and a strong Military formation is under siege, it means something is fundamentally wrong. Clearly, we are witnessing similar security challenges Plateau State experienced in recent past. The manner of brutal attacks and massacre of unarmed women, children and men in Benue State is similar to the clinical cleansing of communities in Plateau State. Similarly, the pattern of narratives that followed the Plateau attacks from some media, political elites; even religious and traditional institutions are what we are witnessing with the Benue attacks. Nigerians are aware that the ancestral home of the Tiv Traditional Head was attacked and occupied. The village is occupied even as we present this press conference. The world is aware that the Governor of Benue State, Dr. Gabriel Suswam and his entourage were attacked as they visited some of the sacked communities. BLA and Nigerians are scandalized that with all these evidences, there is still no security intervention. As we speak, the population of displaced persons is massive. Sadly, no camps have been established for the dislocated persons. We are worried at the delayed actions and response of NEMA, the security agencies and the federal government. The affected communities include: Gwer West, Gwer East, Guma, Logo, Kwande Local government, some parts of Makurdi and Agatu local government areas, etc. This is in addition to the huge population of Benue People that are attacked daily, brutally killed and uprooted from their ancestral homes in Nasarawa and Taraba States. What are the Statistics? • In the last decade, perceived Fulani invaders and mercenaries have attacked and killed over 7000 Benue people, many who are women, children and young people. A lot of the women are raped and killed. There seems to be an organized approach to obliterate the productive group. • Over 1 million displaced internally displaced people are without food, water and medical supplies. • Hundreds and thousands sleep in open places; relations and well-meaning Benue people shelter some and others find themselves in primary schools. Several of the women and children beg on Makurdi streets. • Economic loses: at least N10 billion loses in terms of food crops, economic trees, and properties and still counting. Even in the next 10 years the economy of Benue cannot recover from this shock. • There is impending food crisis, as the farmers are not even able to farm. • These figures are conservative because hundreds of Tiv and Idoma people are missing and cannot be accounted for. • Stats: just yesterday, papers reported that over 200 villages where sacked in Guma and Kwande LGAs Security agencies: • Complicity of security agencies against the Benue people • Lack of adequate response from the security agencies • Overhaul the security structures in Benue • We recognize that the national security adviser and the minister of defence are all of Fulani stalk. Accordingly, we demand a show of sincerity and immediate protection of the ancestral homes of the dislocated persons. • Operation Zenda: We urge the state government to strengthen the capacity of Operation Zenda with adequate facilities to enable them comb the boarders of the state particularly, states sharing boarders with Benue i.e. Nasarawa and Taraba. Condemnation: • We condemn in strong terms the occupation of Tiv and Idoma ancestral homes by the Fulani and their hired mercenaries in Benue, Nasarawa and Taraba States. • We condemn in strong terms the attempted murder of Benue state executive governor, Dr. Gabriel Suswam or any other human being in Benue or Nigeria at large. • We condemn in strong terms the neglect of Benue’s humanitarian crisis by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA). NEMA has shown total neglect of the humanitarian crisis in Benue thus we wonder if Benue is no longer in Nigeria or Benue state is not entitled to benefit from NEMA’s intervention programme? Is NEMA also part of the conspiracy theory against Benue people? • We condemn the total silence on this crisis by the Northern Governors Forum. • We condemn in strong terms the measured silence by the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF). Benue under siege • Benue is still under siege as the occupation of Tiv land continues by the Fulanis and their hire mercenaries. • What is happening in Benue is clear case of settler imperialism, which is worst than colonialism as setter imperialisms seeks to annihilate a tribe and settle on their lands. Poor response from Benue Citizens • Indeed the response by Benue sons and daughters to this crisis is to say the least, appalling. • Benue currently has the Senate President, Senator David Mark and the Senate Minority leader, Senator George Akume. This high profile Senators have indeed not paid the desired attention to this crisis. Until recently, they were all sitting ducks until they began to respond lately. Senator Gemade too only began to respond lately. • Also the Federal Representatives of the local governments that have been ravage by the crisis haven’t done much either. Theories • Helicopters have been cited even in Benue dropping armed mercenaries. • We have reasons to believe Chemical weapons have been used on Tiv people. • Deliberate use of state power against Benue people reminiscent of the Jos experience We call on the arrest and prosecution of Miyyeti Allah Cattle Breeders since they publicly admitted they killed Tiv people in a so called self defence. Other recommendations: • The borders into Nigeria be closed immediately by the FG • Camps and shelters be built across Benue the IDPs • NEMA should immediately send food supplies to the affected communities • Government should ban open air grazing across the country. Anyone who want to keep cattle should buy land and build ranches just like it is done in other parts of the world. Besides, the north has the biggest and best dams, why can’t they grow pasture for their cattle? • The National Human Rights Commission should investigate human rights abuses during this crisis. The statistics below is from Nzorov ward of Guma only. Below is a select statistics of the destruction by the Fulani and some pictures. 1. On Sunday May 26, 2013, the Fulani attacked and burned 109 homes at Gbayange and Atsenyer killing 40 people including old women and children.

On November 21, the Fulani wrecked havoc on the following villages: Tse Tingir, Iorfa, Tse Adega, Tomanyiin, Tse Kwagh, Tse Abeda, Sambe Begha and Alaban.

On December 24, the destruction was more massive.

Samuel Before Jonathan came into power... 1. Poverty: Before you came to power Mr. President, the poverty rate in Nigeria was 54% according to the World Bank records, today it is over 70%. The National Bureau of Statistics tells us that at least 112millio Read more ... n people are living below $1.25. Sir, since you came in, the number of unemployed youth has increased by 15million, with over 70% of graduates unable to find work. 2. Education: Before you came into power sir, according to The Federal Ministry of Education records, the average WAEC and NECO pass rate was between 30 - 35% , today it is less than 11% . We also know what happened with the ASUU strike. 3. Health Care: Sir, before you came into power, Nigeria ranked 5th in Maternal mortality (which was bad as it were), it has now worsened; we now rank 3rd in the world. Sir, HIV prevalence since you came in has gone from 3.1million to 3.4 million (which is a mixture of both more people being infected and more people living longer with the disease) according to the National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA) data. Sir, Just in the year 2012 alone, according to the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Nigerians spent over $130million USD on health care in India, far above what was spent by Nigerians seeking health care in all our Teaching Hospitals combined. Sir, even you do not believe in our health care system. According to several media reports you checked into a London Hospital just to treat gastroenteritis, your wife even reportedly "died" 7 times in a German Hospital. Mr. President if you cannot even patronize our hospitals, do you then expect me to do so? 4. Security: Sir, before you came into power, Nigeria ranked 20th in Kidnapping in the world, today it ranks 5th. We are now often referred to the Kidnap capital of Africa. Sir, over 7000 people have died from Boko Haram related violence since you stepped in. The only time we had any number exceeding that was during the Biafra war were over 1million died! Sir, you even had the guts to bypass our navy and hand over the security of our pipelines to a former murderer and militant, Tompolo, who unarguably is now a multimillionaire in USD. Mr President, who does that? Do you think if Osama Bin Landen had repented, the American government will give him millions of dollars to guard the American water ways? Mr. President you are simply a true reflection of what your haters call you - "Jonadaft". 5. Energy: Sir, while I commend you for the privatization of PHCN, many Nigerians are yet to see any improvement. Tariffs have gone up beyond the reach of average Nigerian citizens. Sir what is happening? 6. Corruption: , corruption sir, I dear say that in the history of Nigeria, we have never witnessed the monumental corruption that has taken place since you stepped in. Most recently, Transparency International rated us 144th in the world down 11 points since you came. By doing a simple arithmetic on monies stolen, we will end up with over $40billion or N6.3Trillion in less than 3 years, that is if you add the $15billion subsidy, missing $20billion , decimated $5billion from the ECA and several billions here and there that have been stolen. Sir, what is Stella Oduah still doing in your cabinet? Why is Alamesiegha celebrated in your government? Why is Maina still working free? Finally sir, Nigerians will not judge you on the basis on how much our economy grew, whether FDI is highest in the world, or all Okonjo-Iweala's many inglorious presentations around the world, very far from that. Rather, Nigerians will say you were the best president if they can find jobs, can walk out without fear of being killed by boko haram, can send their kids to decent schools, can have light, can have water, and a decent health. This Mr. President is what the ordinary Nigerian understand as good governance. Unfortunately, we never really had them before you came to power, but the facts shows us that under your watch these basics have gotten worse. In summary Mr President, you are the worst president ever to preside over this great nation, and before you finally destroy this blessed nation, we MUST kick you out. We will never be cowered by EFCC, the law courts, SSS etc. You have no space in this country, you belong to the deepest part of the abyss. God Bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Purpose Episode 2 Alhaja Nnenna Bahaushe was the first wife of Alhaji Babajide Bahaushe, a major gold and jewelry merchant. He began his business as a trader to the north in the early seventies, selling gold in bulk to top wholesalers and retailers. He was Read more ... so shrewd in business that his customers named him Nyamiri, an offensive term used for Igbos, even though he was Yoruba. Afraid that the name would stick and spoil his business, he began to call himself Alhaji Bahaushe. Bahaushe was simply the term used to refer to the Hausas, especially those from the core north. With time, the name stuck on Babajide, even though he was neither an Alhaji nor a Muslim. But to fit in better with both his suppliers that were mainly from the Middle East and his end buyers, he changed his religion and took a second wife, a true blood Hausa lady from a well-known family. His first wife, Nnenna, Jimi’s mother was displaced after her stubborn refusal to convert to Islam. She was sent to live in Jos while the new wife lived with Alhaji in Lagos. Eventually, Nnenna, to keep her marriage and retain her status as first wife, converted from Christianity and turned into a fulltime veiled Muslimah, a Niqabi, or Eleha as she was called by the Yorubas. Yet she retained her Igbo name and offered her children freedom to practice the faith of their choice. Jimi and his two sisters chose Islam while Jimi’s elder brother and the younger stuck to Christianity. Nnenna had no problems with the diversity and encouraged both faiths in her house, sometimes even indulging in a healthy argument about the Bible with her first son. It was with this same liberality she ran her business. All the girls that worked under her, she treated with respect and generosity. Terdoo was one of them. She had worked with Nnenna for five years before she was transferred to Jimi’s home. She was the most trusted amongst the girls. And it was the same with Marie who only started working for Nnenna a few weeks before the Christmas of 2010. She had shown up at Nnenna’s high-end jewelry store at The Palms asking to fill in the vacancy for a new salesgirl. The post was already taken but Marie’s face held unexplainable charm that Nnenna was drawn to and she offered her immediate employment. Marie became all that any shop owner could hope for. In just three months she established that she was not just a reliable employee but also a charming money-maker. However, Marie’s greatest advantage presented itself the day Nnenna invited Jimi over to the shop to pick up a pair of silver and diamond earrings for his elder brother’s wife. It had taken Nnenna over ten minutes on the phone to persuade him to come over. She could have easily chosen his younger brother for the errand but Nnenna was worried about Jimi’s gynophobia turning into a fear of everything else that could keep him outdoors. She wanted good things for him, to see him become as successful as his father. She also desired for him to fall in love with someone and get married, and that was not just for the main reason of dealing with his phobia. Nnenna had an entirely different reason for seeing him tie the knot. Alhaji had announced to both his wives that he was soon going to be sharing a blinding 80% of his wealth amongst his children. Obviously, the boys were to have larger shares, followed by those who were married and had children. Nnenna didn’t want Jimi to have less than what was due him, so she sought for ways to hook him up with her friend’s daughters but nothing worked. Every disastrous meet-up and failed date only drove him deeper into his shell. Therefore, Nnenna looked for opportunities to have him out in the wild at the mercy of females. She had gotten to the point where she wasn’t going to care if he came home with a girl who wasn’t up to their status; all she wanted was for him to be normal. Hence, on the day he came to collect his sister-in-law’s jewelry from the store, Nnenna urged him to take a stroll round the mall just to enjoy the ‘sights’. “Come on, mom, I’ve been here a dozen times.” “You have?” she feigned surprise. He rolled his eyes. “Yeah.” “When?” “Not important. Can I take the earrings and go, please?” Nnenna didn’t like his impatient tone and she also had a strong urge to yank off the unflattering sunshades he was wearing. She shook her head at him in pity and called for Marie who was in the inner office. “My dear, please bring that jewelry box I gave you to keep earlier.” “Okay ma!” Marie replied and Nnenna leaned towards Jimi briefly. “Come here. There’s something on your nose,” she said. When Jimi got closer she pulled off his sunshades. “Mom, don’t you get tired of doing this? You’re removing my glasses when you’re all covered up like a ninja.” “That’s not a nice thing to say to your mother.” Nnenna shoved the frames into her handbag as Marie emerged from the office with a gift bag. Jimi who had in an instant lowered his head, slightly lifted it in a side glance to stare at Marie as she stepped out. And like a bolt of lightning, he was struck. Nnenna noticed what was happening with him and she wished she could get out her phone to record it. Though not fully facing Marie, Jimi’s head had remained in an angle that left his eyes on her. He stared without blinking. It was something Nnenna had never seen before and she didn’t want to disrupt the moment. “Give the bag to him,” she whispered and Marie obeyed with a step in Jimi’s direction. His concentration became broken when she appeared before him and he returned to his senses, lowered his head and managed to push out a croaky “hi”. Another thing Nnenna had never seen him do. Usually, the females she introduced him to made the first move. “Good afternoon, sir,” Marie replied. “Hi,” he said again and Nnenna held a chuckle. Her poor boy was in a mess and it was fun for her to watch. He looked her way. “Mom, my glasses.” Nnenna handed the pair to him. “I’m leaving,” he said to her and she nodded, watching him as his eyes grazed over Marie one more time before they went behind the sunshades and he hurried out of the shop. When she got home that day, he visited her bedroom where she was unveiled and the creamy tone of her subtle skin lay exposed under dim lights. He talked about pointless topics, walking round the bedroom with his hands in his pockets. She knew he had something else on his mind but she waited for him to bare it out. It took him over an hour though, but he did come round to saying the purpose of his visit. “Mom, that girl I saw in your shop today…Marie? I think…I like her.” Nnenna almost came to tears. The last time she had heard him use similar words was in his Primary Three. He had come home one hot afternoon and slammed his schoolbag on the kitchen counter and said, “mommy, I’m in love!” Her immediate reaction had been hearty laughter. What could a seven year old boy possibly know about love? But Jimi was not joking. Sade, the object of his affection, became a constant name on his lips. He often helped her with her homework, shared his lunch with her and used all his savings to buy a pair of blue studded earrings from Nnenna for her birthday. Like every observant mother, Nnenna saw that the relationship was one-sided but she thought it was a jinx to disrupt one’s first crush, so she let him be, waiting for the day his heart would come back home to her in pieces. And it did. On another hot afternoon, he slammed his bag on the kitchen counter again and went, “I hate Sade! And I hate girls!” When Nnenna asked what had made him change his mind, he said nothing and stomped to his room. She threw the same question to his elder brother, Jude but Jude shook his head and said, “I’m not telling you.” Nnenna never got to know what happened that day but she was okay with it, since it did not affect Jimi’s grades. In fact, it seemed his heartbreak helped him do better in school, but there was something her eyes missed about him and his interaction with girls. By the time she noticed it and was zooming in on correcting it, he had gotten his heart broken a second time, alongside his head and elbow – the result of a bloody fight with a senior in secondary school over a girl who embarrassed him in front of his entire classmates. The details of that encounter also remained sketchy to Nnenna but what bothered her more was the way Jimi stayed away from females like they carried a deadly disease. The journey to try to cure him would take a rough road with visits to psychologists, imams, pastors and even native doctors. Yet Jimi would remain the same, excelling in every other thing but lacking in the love zone. Now, here they were, after all the trying years and he was saying he liked a girl. No doubt, Nnenna was the happiest mother but she maintained her calm. “Let me just clear this off your mind sha,” Jimi said, leaning on her bathroom door. “I’ll not go near her or toast her, so don’t try to set us up or something like that. I just want to observe her from a distance at my own pace.” In a strange manner, Nnenna understood him; she recognized his need to be fond of someone from a distance. It was his own way of telling himself he was still normal and could still have feelings. However, Nnenna wasn’t going to be satisfied with his way alone. There was a lot for him to lose, inheritance-wise from his father and it was her duty as first wife and mother to ensure that all her children were well settled. As a result, she spoke with Marie three days later when she noticed that Jimi made good on his word for not going near her. “My son likes you,” she stated matter-of-factly as Marie was dusting the glass shelves that held expensive diamond jewelry in the shop. Marie stopped and so did Terdoo, who was mopping the floor. Terdoo was in charge of another branch of Nnenna’s shop at Allen Avenue but Nnenna had invited her over because she had plans for Marie. Noticing Terdoo was eavesdropping, Nnenna turned to her. “Tee, go and mop my office.” Terdoo curtsied and disappeared with the mop into Nnenna’s office. “Pick that stool and come here, Marie.” Marie did as she was told and sat on a high stool before Nnenna. “Where are you from?” she asked. “Adamawa.” “What are your full names?” “Chimarya Dauda.” “How old are you?” “Twenty-five, ma.” “Level of education?” At this point, Marie paused. She was sure the CV she submitted to Nnenna before she got the job had all the information. Still she answered. “Diploma in accounting.” “Married?” “No.” “You have a child?” “No.” “Ever been pregnant?” “No.” “Any family disease, mental or otherwise I need to know about?” “No.” “Any disease you have now?” “No.” “Where are your parents?” “They are dead, ma.” “No sister or brother?” “Just one brother. He lives in Yola.” “Any criminal records?” “No.” “Who do you live with in Lagos?” There was hesitation again. Nnenna narrowed her eyes. “You can confide in me.” “My boyfriend.” “You have sex with him?” Another hesitation. “Yes, ma.” Nnenna nodded and pulled her handbag close. She got out her wallet and drew out some money. She also scribbled down a note on a small piece of paper and handed it to Marie. “There’s a clinic at Phase One. That’s the address. Go and get yourself tested. I want your blood group, genotype, HIV status, everything. I have already spoken to the doctor and they’re waiting for you. Just ask for Doctor Itopa.” Marie nodded. “But please ma, what is it for?” “Just go and when you return, we’ll have a talk.” Nnenna watched her as she left the shop, taking a full view of her body. She approved of what she saw. The results of Marie’s test came in the following day and the doctor declared her ‘clean as a whistle’. Nnenna was elated. She went in for the kill while she and Marie were walking towards her car in the parking lot. “How would you like to go on a date with my son?” Marie was shocked at the question and all she could do was stare at the ground she walked on. Nnenna asked no further questions until after they were seated together in her car. “You haven’t replied me yet,” she said to her. “Ma?” “I asked you a question earlier.” “Ma… I have a boyfriend.” “Has he proposed to you yet?” “No.” “Then the relationship is useless as far as I am concerned.” She turned to Marie with a slight shift and took off her veil, exposing her face to her for the first time. “My son, Olujimi likes you, which is a miracle. A huge one. And I don’t want it to turn into a nightmare for him when he finds out he can’t have you. So here’s what you’ll do for me. You will make the first move, date him and then marry him.” “What?” Marie smiled but only to hide her shock and unease. “I will pay three million naira into your account to be my daughter-in-law. I have no hidden agenda, I am an easy woman to be with and Jimi is the most gentle of young men. You will be marrying into a prestigious name and family and you will be well taken care of.” Marie began to perspire. Nnenna started the car and turned on the air conditioner. “What do you say to my proposal?” “Ma, I have a boyfriend.” Nnenna rolled her eyes. “You already said that but what has he offered you? Just look at you. You’re beautiful, intelligent and charming but you’re just a salesgirl! Is that how you planned your life to be? You deserve more and the Bahaushes can do that for you. Once you get married to Jimi, you can go back to school or open your own business or work wherever you want to work. Nothing will stop you from achieving your dreams. Don’t tie yourself to someone you’re not certain will be there for you tomorrow, either financially or emotionally. But I can assure you that my boy will love you the way no man has ever loved you before.” Nnenna knew she was beginning to sound desperate but she didn’t give a damn. She was going to throw all in for Jimi, the one who gave her most trouble, the one she loved most. “Ma, can I think about it?” “Okay. Here’s what I’ll do. I’ll give you five million naira. Five.” “Let me think about it ma. Please.” “Okay. Put on your seatbelt.” Nnenna started the car and they drove away. ******** Marie’s answer came in the next day. She accepted the offer. Agreeing never to mention the deal to anyone, she had her first pay which was not inclusive of the five million. It was for a shopping spree for new clothes. Jimi showed up the following afternoon for some vague errand as requested by Nnenna. This time around, he avoided Marie but Nnenna noticed he had come without his shades. Later, at home, he spoke about Marie’s good dressing over dinner and wondered out loud if she had a boyfriend. “None that I know of,” Nnenna replied. “That’s good.” Jimi nodded and got a smirk from his younger brother, Sesan. “Dude, just yarn the girl or simply shag her.” Nnenna eyed Sesan from her place on the table. “I am sure Doctor Itopa switched you after I gave birth. You’re not my child because no son of mine will be suggesting that kind of rubbish in front of me.” “Alhaja! The only Hajia in my life.” Sesan laughed, licking ogbono soup off his thumb. “Ma binu but did Jimi tell you he cannot shag a girl or that he’s a virgin?” Nnenna was on her way to replying Sesan but she paused and considered his question. She looked at Jimi. “Not now, mom,” Jimi replied, his head bent. “He’s been disvirgined,” Sesan mouthed inaudibly to Nnenna and rose from his chair. Sesan was a short boy with a small stature but he carried around a big mouth and didn’t know how to use it. Picking up his plate of soup, he did a sorry moonwalk whilst singing TLC’s Red Light Special as he left the dining area. “Jimi, is it true?” Nnenna asked. “You’ve had sex? With who? How did you manage to…?” Jimi shot Nnenna a mean stare with a raised brow. “Drop the issue, mom. Besides, it’s Sexy and his antics. No one should be listening to him.” “Okay o.” Nnenna kept quiet and picked out a huge piece of kpomo from her soup dish and left it hanging in the air. “I’m just surprised that you didn’t tell me there was a girl at some point in your life that you’ll even go all the way to have sex with her.” “Mom!” Jimi snapped. “Haba!” “I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I won’t talk about it again.” “Thank you,” he said in annoyance. “By the way, your father and his wife will be here for dinner tomorrow. Your sisters also. Make sure you get back from the office on time. Your father wants to have a word with you.” Nnenna watched Jimi’s jaw clench and observed how he slowly lost his appetite. He wasn’t his father’s favorite and family dinners with both of them always ended in fall outs. Alhaji was coming to discuss his displeasure at Jimi’s ‘issue’ even as much as Nnenna had begged him not to. Alhaji was very certain Jimi was gay and hiding it. He was determined to prove it and after doing so, cut him off from his wealth. But first, he enjoyed the game of harassing him. If there was anybody Sesan took after, it was Alhaji. Always one to think fast, Nnenna dialled Marie after Jimi left the table and invited her for the family dinner the next day. Smiling on her bed as she went to sleep that night, she imagined the shock that would be on everyone’s face when she introduced Marie as Jimi’s girlfriend. Jimi, she was certain, would be mad, but she was Mommy Dearest to him and everything she did was for his good. He always understood that and he would forgive her no matter what she did. The dinner came and went the following day and everything happened as she had planned; she couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. The whole dinner table was silent after her introduction of Marie. Jimi was embarrassed and wanted to deny the relationship but Marie’s hand found his under the table and held it. If Nnenna hadn’t been observant from where she sat beside Marie, she would have missed that special moment when Marie wanted to pull away but Jimi held on tight and some form of peace filled his face, yet revealing nothing of what was going on under the table. After that night, their relationship progressed without her butting in. It was difficult to stay away but she felt she had done her bit already. As soon as they announced their engagement seven months later, she found some quiet place to cry and to thank God. Like every Nigerian mother would, she arranged the wedding and made sure it was a noisy one. Jimi got his share of the inheritance, Marie got her deal money, they both were expecting a baby and Nnenna was proud of herself. When Kiki was born her joy reached a new high and she went all out to shower her love on her. She sent Terdoo to Jimi’s as both nanny and housemaid. Her payment to her was school fees for part-time evening classes at the Lagos State University for a postgraduate diploma she had been seeking to acquire. Nnenna also put Terdoo in the house as a spy, to report any strange behavior from Marie towards Jimi but Terdoo never had any reason to suspect Marie. In her words, Marie loved Jimi wholeheartedly. With that report, Nnenna assured herself that Marie had fallen in love with Jimi and the money had nothing to do with it. She had believed it was going to be smooth sailing henceforth but Marie’s sudden death jolted her from her castle in the air. It hit her almost as hard as it did Jimi. She cried for weeks and refused to eat or even leave the house. Her dread was for Jimi and how he would recover from his loss. All her efforts were to waste and finding someone new to fill in the void Marie left was near impossible. She allowed Jimi mourn but when she felt he had suffered enough agony, she traveled to Jos to get him home. He was not the son she used to know. Hollow cheeks, sunken eyes and an overall skinny frame greeted her eyes when she sighted him but she remained strong for both of them. On their return to Lagos, she made sure he was settled in and comfortable. She didn’t mind that he didn’t want to go back to work; she was just glad to see that he was coping fine. Before now, she was back in business and had even expanded her line of shops to Port Harcourt. Jimi’s return home gave her reason to rest for a while. After a short week of taking it easy, she was spending the last evening with Kiki before she made another week-long journey to Dubai and Qatar. Kiki had gotten into a tantrum at dinner time and while Nnenna was trying to force her to feed, they were interrupted by her ringing phone. Nnenna instructed Sesan to answer the call but he passed the phone to her instead. “Must be your business people,” he said. “Private number.” Nnenna clicked on the answer button and put the phone to her ear while trying to get Kiki to stop crying. “Hello?” There came silence from the other end. “Hello?” More silence. “Hello? Who is on the line?” She heard the sound of someone clearing their throat and finally a voice came. “Mo…Mommy?” Nnenna’s eyes shot out at once. The phone left her hand and fell to the floor. Sesan who was strumming the strings of his box guitar nearby, turned to her. “Alhaja, kilode?” But Nnenna couldn’t move. She glared at the phone on the floor with eyes of fear and kept pointing at it without speaking. Sesan put his guitar away and hurried to where the phone was. He picked it up and saw that it was still connected to the caller. “Hello?” No one spoke. “Who is this? Hello?” A man’s guttural voice came on. “Give the phone to your mother, young man.” “Who the hell are you?” “Give the phone to Alhaja!” Sesan put the phone on speaker and urged Nnenna to speak up. “H-hello?” she said. “Mommy…” The initial voice Nnenna had heard returned. “It’s me. It’s Marie.” Nnenna held her chest to keep from falling. Sesan held her, his own shock palpable as well. “I’m not dead. I’m alive. Mommy,” Marie began to cry over the phone, “this man…he kidnapped me and he won’t let me go unless you do what he wants.” “Are you okay?” “Yes, I am.” “What does he want?” Sesan asked. “Kiki. He wants Kiki.” “Why?” Sesan almost shouted. “Kiki doesn’t belong to Jimi, mommy. I’m sorry. She belongs to him… to my kidnapper.” Nnenna looked down to see her precious granddaughter who was now clinging to her leg, her cries abated, her thumb in her mouth. Nothing was making sense to Nnenna at that juncture; not Marie’s resurrection from the dead and certainly not the strange phone call. All she knew was that she wasn’t giving Kiki up. “No. Nobody will take Kiki o.” Sesan nodded in agreement. “Very well,” the man’s guttural voice returned. “Prepare another funeral for your son’s real baby whom Marie is carrying as we speak! Have a nice evening.”

Hassan Mr President, Nigeria is much worse than you met it. Except for our Super Eagles victories, you have done nothing but destroy the very fabric of Nigeria.

Sir, over 7000 people have died from Boko Haram related violence since you stepped in. The only time we had any number exceeding that was during the Biafra war were over 1million died! Sir, you even had the guts to bypass our navy and hand over the security of our pipelines to a former murderer and militant, Tompolo, who unarguably is now a multimillionaire in USD.

Mr. President you are simply a true reflection of what your haters call you - "Jonadaft". 5.
