|Celebrities / Re: Charles Novia Disses Lagos To Abuja Trekker by abbey621(m): 1:18pm On Apr 22|
I can understand why so many of us are pessimistic, we don't live that kind of life and are basically lazy! In the North walking large distances is the norm, they are conditioned for such tasks. The question everyone should be asking is where does the man come from? What does he do for a living? How fit was he? Does he have family members or friends who are aware of his daily activities? These questions and more would help authenticate his claim instead of speculations!
|Politics / Re: MASSOB Urges UN To Recognise State Of Biafra by abbey621(m): 9:12pm On Apr 20|
If Biafra is what it would take to shut up the most irritating set of people in Nigeria, then so be it! At this point it's no longer funny, I would rather give them Biafra in peace than watch them take it by force! I've analyzed the situation very carefully and one thing is constant Igbos are not satisfied with mixing with Yorubas, Hausas or any other tribe, they've tried but can't tolerate it any longer, to them all other tribes stink so please President Elect Buhari, give them what they want and let us all live in peace!
|Politics / Re: Buhari Social Program: Laudable, Laughable Or Dead On Arrival? by abbey621(m): 7:03pm On Apr 19|
As clueless as Jonathan was, if he surrounded himself with bright, forward thinking minds he would have succeeded greatly. I believe a lot of people would be shocked at how successful the incoming government will be, to those doubters out there thinking this is just about Buhari please educate yourself and open your minds. Yes some of the things said during election campaigns are laughable, yes some of the things might not work out at all but rest assured the incoming government will be very effective where it counts such as stable electricity, safer roads and so much more. Nigerians have shown the elites that the power of change is real and any government would be very eager to impress!

Do you know the irony of it all? The man has more money than all the members on this thread put together, yet we are more concerned about his dressing skills. Lesson learnt: Poor people waste their time criticizing, Rich people are too busy to notice minute things. In fact, you people are infecting me already, I've spent one minute of my precious time writing this....chai!

|Religion / Re: Can A Born Again Give A Head During Sex? by abbey621(m): 1:16pm On Apr 16|
Everybody needs to just calm the f*ck down! Why must everything be religious in 9ja? I just don't get it! In this life, everyone is unique, what gets some people off won't work for others. Some people need oral stimulation to reach their peak while others are satisfied with regular intercourse. There's no sin in exploring our bodies and discovering ways to make sex more pleasurable, the sin occurs when you do it with the wrong person. If you are married, you are free to give your all to your partner if it will keep him or her satisfied!

baralatie:Yes I mentioned Abacha, what Nigeria needs is discipline and a strong leader, when other countries respect us they won't dare harbour our enemies!
|Politics / Re: U.S. Predicts Challenge In Protecting Nigerian Citizens By The New Govt In Abuja by abbey621(m): 8:51pm On Apr 15|
Why must other countries take responsibility for our inaction. The Office of the President is very powerful, Nigeria is not a country that should be intimidated, a strong president would know how to combat any form of insurgency. Who are the Northern elites? Where were they when Abacha was around? A strong leader puts mechanism in place to ensure the life of the citizens are secured!
|Politics / Re: U.S. Predicts Challenge In Protecting Nigerian Citizens By The New Govt In Abuja by abbey621(m): 5:13pm On Apr 15|
Of course it's easy to judge GEJ, what sort of president would call Boko Haram " Our brothers and sisters" ? If GEJ spent the last 4 years fighting Boko Haram as vigorously as he did during the last 6 months, he would have been seen as heroic, instead he chose to play politics with people's lives!

Stop saying jargons, only God can guarantee security and safety. Even in advanced countries, people get killed on a daily basis. Buhari will definitely improve the security of the nation but it might take time, it's not something that can be done in a day.
|Politics / Re: See How This White Man Condemned #bringbackourgirls Hashtag On Twitter. by abbey621(m): 8:26pm On Apr 14|
He's completely right, tweeting has not had the effect many people thought it would when the campaign first started. It is very important that Nigerians and other world citizens put pressure on the government, government must not relent on its efforts until victory is achieved. Words alone can't do it, more action please!
|Politics / Re: U.S. Predicts Challenge In Protecting Nigerian Citizens By The New Govt In Abuja by abbey621(m): 5:41pm On Apr 14|
Why are Nigerians so negative minded? I don't see anything wrong in the article, they nailed it right on point! Any government would have a hard time tackling the challenges facing Nigeria. What did you expect them to say? That it would be easy to combat all the problems? That Buhari would magically wave a wand and all our problems would disappear? Come on guys get real!

Nigerians, Nigerians, Nigerians, why do we always think everything demands a direct answers, all these questions are not testing for correct answer but for your method of thinking, your analytical depth and the ability to think outside the box. If you look carefully and read each question, you'll notice a lot of variance, it's not something math alone can solve!

Why are some people so daft? In a group, we have some songs written individually or as a group, he's just stating fact, why come up with some bullcrap about jealousy or separation? Peter has more dance moves, swag and fierceness while paul has the tune, the lyrics and the emotional side, both of them would be nothing without their big bro (Jude), case closed!

Life in the U.S ain't no joke, the woman you associate with can make or break you. As we all know by now, women run things here in the States, many men find themselves trapped and stressed out, at the same time we also have many men mistreating women, many men resulting to violence to keep women shut or to keep them from being exposed to their rights. The real question is how does one keep from falling into one of those two categories? May God help all Nigerians abroad!
|Religion / Re: Jide Macaulay, Nigerian Gay Pastor Writes Letter To Homophobes With Bible Quotes by abbey621(m): 3:26pm On Apr 10|
This life is simple, let the gays be gay and let the others live live as normal. I can't stop anyone from being gay but I'll be damned if anyone is going to force me to associate with them or like them. The gay pastor is definitely confused, the Bible passages were taken out of context, old testaments verses written to reflect the society at that point in time. People should leave the gays alone, let's not use religion to convince them or any other thing, leave Judgment to God and control only the things we can control.
|Politics / Re: Tinubu Blasts Party Leaders Over Loss To PDP by abbey621(m): 3:17pm On Apr 10|
I'm sorry but you are very biased. Even before the Oba made the negative statement, JK and PDP had been campaigning using Igbos as his tool, even before the Oba's statements, Igbos have been shouting Lagos is a no man's land. These things contributed to the negative atmosphere Lagos is experiencing right now. Stop using vague rhetoric to justify your point, the fact remains that Nigeria is deeply divided by ethnicity, what you can't do in Aba or Onitsha, don't come and start it in Lagos, Eko o ni baje, Igbos can never rule Lasgidi, I still maintain my position as long as Yorubas don't have a say in Enugu or Anambra, Igbos can and will never dominate Lagos a Yorubaland. Nobody is against Igbos voting for Agbaje but do it in peace, stop trying to influence the election by intimidating people, what the heck did the Igbo group go and do at the palace? Did they go there to entice him to vote for Agbaje or not? Igbos thinking they can outsmart everybody since 1960
|Politics / Re: Tinubu Blasts Party Leaders Over Loss To PDP by abbey621(m): 3:03pm On Apr 10|
You are right! Tribe should not matter, everyone should be able to vote for their candidate, I have no problem with that but what I do have problem with is the fact that one candidate is inciting one tribe against the other, what I do have a problem with is Igbos claiming Lagos is a no man's land and that they'll determine the outcome of the election. My friend forget about what the Oba said or didn't say, it's all just politics!
|Politics / Re: Tinubu Blasts Party Leaders Over Loss To PDP by abbey621(m): 11:49am On Apr 10|
Must you drag the entire tribe down with your nonsense. If you disagree with someone's statement does it give you the right to bash his or her race, tribe or ethnicity? You think you sound intelligent but you are so far from it, you can't even argue your case without resulting to insults. I'm sure you can't afford to talk like this outside and can only hide behind the blanket of social media!
|Politics / Re: Tinubu Blasts Party Leaders Over Loss To PDP by abbey621(m): 9:51am On Apr 10|
Very lengthy write up but it all boils down to one thing, perception! Can any Yoruba person or group dare go to Imo or Enugu and start shouting no man's land? Can any Yoruba person or group go into Imo or Enugu and shout that the election in those states will be determined by Yorubas? No matter how you look at it, the Igbos in Lagos are walking a very thin rope which might just snap any given day. All these issues would have been resolved if Igbos just maintain a calm demeanor and vote for whomever they like, you don't have to shout no man's land up and down trying to claim what is not yours. Yes Igbos helped build Lagos, yes Igbos should be able to vote for their candidate but that does not mean you all get to do whatever you like, Nigeria is still a country classified by ethnicity, Lagos perhaps is the most accommodating of all the States in terms of diversity and the Yorubas are probably the meekest of tribes when it comes to using force but don't mistake meekness for weakness !
|Family / Re: My 2 Months Old Marriage Is Crashing - HELP ME by abbey621(m): 12:10am On Apr 10|
Things gets easily messed up when men don't play their role. You married her, not the other way around. Sit her down talk to her, let her know what's bothering you and the implications. Reinforce this with kind words such as "I love you dearly" or " You mean so much to me". Let her know that you can't continue like this, if she truly cares she'll be willing to negotiate, if not then it's better you get elders involve. The key here is communication, if she likes malice then you must be the opposite, talk, talk and then talk some more......

Please Igbo brothers and sisters, stop ridiculing yourselves. The Oba has made a mistake, it is clear to everyone. Joke or no joke those words were not wise but to continue hurling insults at him or any Yoruba person is uncalled for, to create fake Wiki pages with no substance only means that you guys are pouring more fuel into the fire. Everybody should just f**king chill already!

|Politics / Re: Igbo Groups Drag Oba Of Lagos To NHRC by abbey621(m): 1:01pm On Apr 09|
Unfortunately I have to disagree with you, in Yorubaland an Oba is not someone that should be ridiculed, his statements were outrageous and should be rebuked but as the person on the throne one should never hurl insults at him. We Yoruba respect our monarchs especially one as big as the Oba of Lagos. No right thinking yoruba person would sit back and watch you insult the Oba, it's just like going to the North and insulting the Emir, it's just uncalled for. There are proper ways to address this issue without causing tribal war, there are ways to do things without both tribes making a mockery of one another.
|Politics / Re: Igbo Groups Drag Oba Of Lagos To NHRC by abbey621(m): 12:37pm On Apr 09|
You are taking things out of context, the Oba made the statement during a visit from some Igbo elders and his friend Pat Utomi. Even Utomi didn't see it as an insult but as a joke. Okay let's agree the statement was senseless why are most Igbos here on Nairaland seeing this as an attack by the Yoruba people against Igbos? Should the actions of one man represent the belief of an entire ethnicity?
|Politics / Re: Igbo Groups Drag Oba Of Lagos To NHRC by abbey621(m): 12:25pm On Apr 09|
Honestly speaking, it's not hard to see why most tribes dislike the Igbos. Arrogance,selfishness and outright foolishness. A Yoruba monarch said something he should not have said, most Yorubas are disappointed in him and even the political party APC are denying him yet some morons, some idiotic egghead will make it seem that the Yorubas have insulted the entire generations of Igbos. They want it to sound as if we Yorubas have maltreated them for years, even when we welcome them with open arms into our land, expose them to our culture and take interest in their traditions they still feel marginalized and neglected. Don't get me wrong, we have some good thinking Igbos out there but it seems majority of the rest can never be satisfied until they control everything. Maybe we should just serve them the head of our Oba on a platter of gold or perhaps just hand over Lagos to them since it's clear that they cannot forgive the Oba for his statements

|Politics / Re: Ohanaeze gives Oba of Lagos 48 hours to withdraw threat to Igbos by abbey621(m): 2:08am On Apr 07|
Why don't you stop deceiving yourself! Wherever a tribe is a minority they are always seen as guests. In the east, Yorubas can never dominate, there are certain things that they cannot accomplish. In the North, muslims are majority, christians will always be a minority. In Lagos even though the Yorubas are the majority, Igbos are able to accomplish a lot due partially to their hardwork and majorly to the friendly environment Lagos gives to all its citizens but don't mistake hospitality for weakness. The Oba is the traditional ruler of Lagos when he makes a mistake you don't give him an ultimatum or make threats against him and the Yorubas rather you involve elders or take matters to the Governor and other leaders of the State.
|Politics / Re: Ohanaeze gives Oba of Lagos 48 hours to withdraw threat to Igbos by abbey621(m): 1:52am On Apr 07|
I am no fan of Oba Akinolu, in fact I still believe he was not meant to be king but however harsh his statements might sound rest assured it's all just politics. The Igbos should involve elders in this matter not useless youths with wayward statements. Nobody can threaten the Oba of Lagos no matter how you feel about him, he's still BOSS. I know it must hurt to watch a monarch utter such careless statements but that's just some of the things that comes with living in another man's land; this issue should be resolved by dialogue not by issuing ultimatums.

|Family / Re: Read A Lady's Take On Woman Claiming Equal Rights With Men + Photo by abbey621(m): 3:50pm On Apr 05|
What women don't know is that this equality of a thing does not favor them. In most relationships when it comes to responsibilities the man takes the higher portion, when it comes to gift giving, the man gives way more and when it comes to security and well being of the family, the man does what he has to, if he does not do these things then he is seen as weak. No female wants a weak man, by demanding equality you are not empowering yourself, you are demoralizing your man. I think the op is right, when men treat women the way they would treat themselves then there would be peace!
