|Education / Mentally Challenged Man Helps Students To Solve Their Assignments In Adamawa by dainformant(m): 8:36am On Dec 08|
A man identified as Sulaiman Ibrahim Jalo, has shared a story of a mentally challenged man who helps students with their assignments despite his condition in a community in Adamawa state. According to the poster, the man, Muhammad Chubado who is very smart and intelligent - was bewitched by some persons which led to his insanity some years ago.
Read the full details below as shared by Sulaiman Ibrahim Jalo;
Meet a mentally challenged personality,who by now,could have become "a great professor",from the Modibbo Adama's Kingdom of Fombina,Northeastern Nigeria.
The unique fellow is patriotically contributing his vast gift of abundant knowledge and talents positively to the service of his community in particular and to the entire humanity in general;a super brilliant,super creative,super skilful, super intelligent and of course one of the super intellectual,talented genius of all times;though mentally challenged yet highly knowledgeable in the fields of high school's science subjects of: Physics,Chemistry,Biology and Geography;highly efficient in Arabic calligraphy,literature and poetry;greatly proficient in English,Fulani and some conversational Arabic languages;excellent in high school's Mathematics like: Arithmetic, Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, Statistics, Probability and some of the elementary calculus;a current affairs and Civic education guru,national and international political expert with vast knowledge of Government,History, Economics and some Diplomatic Studies.
He is indeed one of the smartest,mentally challenged,Jack of all trades and master of all who ever lived and perhaps will live at least for a generation to come;very humble,highly humorous and exceedingly super friendly,nice fellow. Popularly called Chubado Dadi or Muhammad Chubado(also known as Muhammad Chubado Mahmud) is a sexagenarian native of Bako Ward,Yola South L.G.A,Adamawa State Northeastern Nigeria. Born Muhammad Chubado Shehu(about 8 years before the Federation of Nigeria finally resisted the British colonial rules in the year, 1960)precisely in the January of 1952 to Mallam Shehu Modibbo,a petty clothing trader from Girei L.G.A. of Adamawa state and Mallama Dadi,a house wife from Malkohi,a suburban village,just few kilometers from Yola,the administrative capital of Adamawa state, Northeastern Nigeria.
Mahmud was his guardian uncle who took care of his education and upbringing after the death of his father in 1962. He Attended Hammawa Primary School Yola for his elementary education from 1963 to 1969 and subsequently had his secondary education at General Murtala Ramat Muhammed College,the then Government Secondary School Yola, between 1970 and 1974 where he obtained his grade 3 certificate.
Later on he got employed as a library assistant with the defunct Northeastern State,stationed in Maiduguri,Borno state from 1974 to 1975 where he was later on, transferred to the Government Secondary school Yola on the same basis,he worked just for 7- 9 months when he suddenly left his work for no any other reasons(but according to some sources very close to him,he was magically charmed and bewitched by some unknown wicked individual(s),since then,he remain mentally and physically challenged and as a result of that he lost his precious sense of hearing.
The suspected wicked,unscrupulous people who bewitched him could have been so jealous of his God given,super talented intelligence and also felt highly threatened with his super amazing knowledge of many wonderful things where they casted some black magical spell in order to quench their hidden anger and inherent jealousy towards him. Despite all these challenges,the guy can read,speak and write excellently but unable to hear very well. He can communicate by writing and through speaking but can not hear.
He is currently assisting countless number of students of the community where he resides by guiding them solve some of their school's assignments and home works with excellent guidance from his pools of endowed beneficial knowledge. I requested him just recently to write his brief autobiography of which he promptly did that excellently,here I snapped and included the manuscripts of the said autobiography for your perusal.
I marvelled and I wondered with this super creative,brilliant genius who astonishingly wrote the foolscap size,4-page papers just within 15 minutes with the speed of light. He is highly loaded with great brain,full of wisdom and knowledge that is extraordinarily super amazing. He is indeed a super brilliant genius par excellence and a right honourable gentleman.
Currently he told me,he is earnestly looking for a job of a library assistant,a teaching employment of elementary or junior secondary schools or a file attendant clerk in any organization or establishment that may require his services. Please can any spirited individual help this super brilliant,super intelligent,mentally challenged,patriotic Nigerian genius secure a job or get him employed # courtesy of Sulaiman Ibrahim Jalo..

|Religion / Femi Owolabi: "Pastors Use Tithes And Offerings For Humanity" by dainformant(m): 12:35pm On Dec 06|
While the issue of tithing appears to be causing ripples and division among Nigerians, an investigative journalist and writer, Femi Owolabi, has come to the defence of some pastors and what they do with the tithes and offerings they get from the church.
Femi Owolabi took to his Facebook account to speak on the trending issue. Below is what he posted...
I live around Yaba area of Lagos. From Sabo down to Iwaya, you see boreholes donated by Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, MFM.
Many months ago, I was working on a report and I needed to carry out some laboratory tests. When I got to University of Lagos' Chemical Engineering lab, I was directed to the university's central lab which I gathered is the largest and most equipped. Entering, I saw that the lab was donated by Daniel Olukoya, founder of MFM who is actually an alumnus of the school.
As much as the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, embarrasses itself on the pages of newspaper, CAN runs one of the largest displaced persons camps in the northeast. For three years that I have been mobilizing relief materials for displaced persons in the northeast, aside individuals and a few NGOs, Christian organizations have been a larger donor of relief materials. My phone would ring, and the caller goes, "I am Pastor JJ. We have bags of cloths, please how do we get these to the displaced persons in the northeast?"
Charis Family Church, in 2015, opened its facility as a collection center for relief materials. The pastor, Bayo Adeyinka, and a team raised almost a million naira to sort logistics.
Just yesterday, another pastor whose church's team once gave me bags of relief materials for IDPs, told me they have 33k left in the account, and he asked what this can sort for the IDPs. He also wants us to meet this week so he can drop with me, bags of relief materials.
A man reached out to me many months ago. He needed information on how he can move 1000 cartons of flour (or wheat?) from Lagos to any of the IDPs camps in the northeast. I did a check on the man, he is a pastor.
In Lagos here, the Catholic Mission and a couple of other missionary hospitals are always on medical outreach to the IDPs.
I understand there is an ongoing debate on whether or not paying tithe is a Christian practice. Sincerely, those arguing against come with strong points. And sadly, responses from Daddy GO and others are so weak, far from convincing.
Get it right, it is the duty of Lagos Water Board to provide water for Lagosians, but MFM now shares in this responsibility. It is the duty of NEMA and the Refugees' Commission to attend to the victims of insurgency, but CAN and a couple of other Christian organizations share largely in this.
So, above all, if I am paying tithe or giving church my money, I do so because of some of these things I have mentioned in this post

|Crime / Timon Chukwuemeka Recounts Ordeal With SARS by dainformant(m): 6:33am On Dec 05|
Following the #EndSARS campaign against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a sports reporter and presenter at Sports Radio Brila FM, Ohagwu Timon ChukwuEmeka, has recounted his encounter with the security operatives while returning from Uyo, Akwa Ibom state where he had gone to cover the World Cup qualifiers against Zambia...
SARS operatives have been accused by Nigerians of brutality, molestation and extortion - hence the campaign to 'end the anti-robbery unit'...
Read below what the Sports presenter, ChukwuEmeka shared on Facebook;
My SARS Experience
I was returning from Uyo after the World Cup qualifiers against Zambia. Somewhere along the journey, I decided to buy bottle water to quench my thirst, then the film started
Act One, Scene One: It was a SARS check point, and I was buying one bottle water with 1000naira, the guy's eyes came alive, and he said to me, "Starboy abeg come down come show me your bag"
Well, even as a journalist I understand not to argue with anyone with a gun adiamama, so I came down, showed him my bag. He signalled the others like, "Maga don land"
They became courteous, carried my bags for me into their office, one of them started questioning me, "Confess wetin dey your bag before we start to search", I had nothing on me and did not know how they would react if I told them I was a journalist, so I held back and allowed them play their hand..
One of them rushed in, overtly excited and screamed at the one questioning me, "Collect him phone search am na, na Starboy wey him be"... I decided I had had enough, and told them I was a journalist who went to Uyo to cover the Super Eagles game, the mood in room changed immediately, then I brought out my ID, in that moment they discovered I was a pressman
The man who rushed into the room was crestfallen, he left immediately in disappointment, obviously to go look for the next victim, the one questioning me looked at me and said, "Super Eagles win nahh, na una Amaju give all the money, me self nah Nigerian"
In that moment, the one at the checkpoint walked into the room and said,, "Oga Pressman, make we at least share that water change", as an Eko boy, I knew there was no leaving there without parting ways with something, so with 500naira and a handshake the producer screamed cut, and the movie was over...
I was lucky, many others are not that lucky, though I believe a whollistic reform is more realistic...
I nevertheless join millions of Nigerians to say #ENDSARSNOW
