Not surprised. With the rate indecency is celebrated in Nigeria — in local movies, instagram, tweeter, facebook, and other social media platforms, the rise in the number of single mothers, rape cases, and prostitution, it won't be long until Nigeria becomes the headquarters of people living with hiv in the world.

Another evidence of being the most Religious Nation on Earth devoid of morality and Our (GOD) fear at heart in obedience.

But what do you expect when the majority of those whose actions and practices leads to the most Religious Nation name tag are busy and most concerned with the trending topic of tithing or No tithing stand point of view instead of hammering on salvation and the need to focus positively with Faith, Hope and Love in absolute obedience.

The result of their actions though is a manifestation of the embrace of negativity in secret while confessing the opposite openly which is a kind of trying to fuse Light and Darkness together, It can't be.

It's baffling sometimes when you here supposed highly 'Religious' servants talk about immorality with ease and excitement in their expressions just as even the case on a particular day that we were on transit. we couldn't believe it and their discuss actually lead to the Hausa speaking fellow passengers had to voice out the expression 'wa'an nan yan guluma ne' to mean these ones are set of Gossipers. probably they understand Yoruba to the core as the talking just went on throughout the journey.

The So called UNAIDS and other bodies too are not helping matters at all as the consistent and persistent insistence on the promotion of the use and sharing of Condoms to mark special AIDS AND HIV awareness days across media outlets is actually doing more harm than good as such actions impedes and infringes on the core African values of Obedience, Respect, Love in Unity, cultural values and morals thereby eroding almost everything great about Us owing to the infusion of foreign culture in association with the policy trust being handed down with their result and unwholesome effect of Economic underdevelopment and retardedness over the centuries.

certainly however, The Highly Religious people name tag though is in TRUTH a reality of Our nature and status Divinely as the LORD ALMIGHTY GOD is here and within setting up NIGERIA for a take over of the SPIRITUAL TOURISM HOSTING THAT ARE USUALLY OBTAINABLE IN SAUDI ARABIA & ISRAEL combining both faithful inclination.

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) has reported that Nigeria purportedly has the second largest HIV epidemic in the world and has one of the highest new infection rates in sub-Saharan Africa.

This is just as it said 720,000 Nigerians are on United States PEPFAR-supported HIV treatment with approximately four million Nigerians having received HIV counseling and testing services in 2017 alone.
The acting Public Affairs Officer of the United States Consulate, Kevin Krapf, made this disclosure during the commemoration of the 2017 World AIDS day held in Lagos.

The commemoration was organised by the consulate in collaboration with the Lagos State University College of Medicine (LASUCOM) led by the Provost, Professor Babatunde Solagberu.
With the programmed theme: ‘Increasing Impact through Transparency, Accountability and Partnerships’, Krapf said it reflects the US government longstanding leadership in addressing global HIV/AIDS, increasing our impact to move epidemics from crisis toward control.


He said: “It also highlights the historic opportunity to accelerate progress toward controlling, and ultimately ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic as a public health threat in countries around the world.
“Finally, it emphasises the critical role of transparency, accountability, and partnerships in reaching these goals.

“According to the Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), Nigeria has the second largest HIV epidemic in the world and has one of the highest new infection rates in sub-Saharan Africa.
“Many people living with HIV in Nigeria are unaware of their status due to insufficient recommended number of HIV testing and counselling centres.

“Low access of antiretroviral treatment remains an issue for people living with HIV in Nigeria, and I welcome the new commitment of the Federal Government of Nigeria to use domestic funds to provide antiretroviral drugs to an additional 50,000 people living with HIV each year.
“The US government, through PEPFAR, has helped not only to save and improve millions of lives, but also transformed the global HIV/AIDS response.

“Currently, more than 720,000 Nigerians are on PEPFAR-supported HIV treatment and approximately four million Nigerians have received HIV counselling and testing services in 2017.
“Also, approximately 50,000 pregnant women have received antiretroviral drugs to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV.” Krapf added: “We are at an unprecedented moment in the global HIV/AIDS response. For the first time in modern history, we have the opportunity to change the very course of a pandemic by controlling it without a vaccine or a cure.

“Controlling the pandemic will lay the groundwork for eliminating or eradicating HIV which we hope will be possible through the future scientific breakthroughs which will lead to an effective HIV vaccine and cure.
“The US government continues to lead the way in the global HIV/AIDS response. But no one country or entity alone can end the AIDS pandemic.
“We are proud to partner governments, the private sector, philanthropic organisations, multilateral institutions, academic institutions, civil society and faith-based organisations, people living with HIV and many others in this project.

“Through this collective effort, we also expect to reduce the future costs required to sustain the HIV/AIDS response.”
It further said: “To accelerate progress toward HIV/AIDS epidemic control, PEPFAR continues to leverage the capabilities, assets, and technological know-how of the private sector, creating innovative solutions to complex problems.”

While thanking the Lagos State AIDS Control Agency for conducting a state-wide aggressive campaign, counselling and HIV/AIDS testing through its mobile clinic initiative, Krapf said their​determination to ensure a zero prevalence of HIV in the state aligns with the strategic plan of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief.
He also commended the Society for Family Health for providing quality health services to Nigerians, particularly the poor and vulnerable.

it was just a matter of time...Nigerians had it coming too bad...Frustration,illiteracy,abject poverty that drastically increased the last 30months...,and incessant use of drugs...Drugs are inhibitors...Especially when used not for recreational purposes..


So when you use drugs as a result of all the aforementioned factors,you are bound to be reckless not thinking clearly and engage in multiple unprotected sex..No distressed society can survive without such things plaguing it...

When i saw the rate of drug abuse in 2015..I could only imagine and project this day...Especially girls...Some girls don't even remember who they slept with where and when because they are always stoned and hoppin from one hotel to the other just if they can get high..

In lekki,ajah and festac they have a group of girls called SK girls those ones appear normal but they are far from normal
..Their handbags is always fitted with 2grams of Sk and 2bottles of codeine..Steady..They are always having slurred speech and body odored because no shower as a result of the oblivion state constantly..

Most times they don't even remember what day it is..It saddens me because most of them were supposed to never have ended up like that..The guys are taking advantage of them from yahoo money they abuse them, this girls are constantly bleeped for weeks and passed around hotel rooms and they wouldn't even know because they are helplessly high.

Apart from illiteracy and poverty...Ignorance is another factor,because there are some people who believe HIV as it were isn't real...Atleast in 2015 when i was home someone still told me that and it left me in total dismay...The guy said na oyinbo sickness bros dem wan use am kill Us...He even said that is because i live abroad that i was afraid that in Nigeria nobody is afraid of it..I almost mutated into Superman and fly away ���


It's not like nigerian women obey their chemistry and possess high libido..So i don't see any reason why HIV should be prevalent i stand to be challenged...Our women are the most rigid and conservative sexually in the world..That is why after spending thousands on a random girl and she ends up in your room,she will still be asking you what do you want from me?

So if you bear this facts in mind,it would be almost impossible to phantom the reason of HIV prevalence without penning down my aforementioned factors..


Like south African countries that was the highest before in Africa we all knew it was because of alcohol,reckless sex and drugs..But we all know their women are slide to unlock when it comes to sex...0-100 in 5secs their libido has no rival.

Well before i bore you guys...The solution is 2019...Let's get a youthful leader forget all this old cargoes please...Let's make us the happy people once more...We can't be plagued with SARS,corruption,terrorism and now HIV...Please lets choose one struggle at a time...

#shalom#livefree or diehard!

false assumptions.

The sells of condom has dropped from 2012, meaning people are not protecting themselves again.

Multiple sex partners & no protection plus MouthAction is the issue

Nigeria, always setting bad records
Forget all this political statistics to undermine the emerge of Africa. Is no longer south Africa, Botswana or Uganda but Nigeria. Tomorrow it will shift to Egypt. Avoid unprotected and indiscriminate sex and other other avenues to contact the virus like sharing of needle and contact with blood. Pre-martial sex is sin.

i just dey laff una...God go help una..But i can help u guys when u fall into such temptations because it's only when a man has no purpose for waking up in the morning sleeping becomes very interesting...Sex is supposed to be for a way of showing love or affection...But can u love every girl?No..!

Sex is supposed to be for pleasure and leisure...If you want to be relevant and useful in life..You can't always be in pleasure and liesure mood..

There is time for everything...Life is a race but we all have different tracks and pace...Follow your own pace and use your own track to run your own race.

It was kinda graphic as a primary school boy thus it stuck in my head
