Family / Re: Pls Help!! My Wife Fought With My Mother Following A Quarrel. What Should I Do? by emmatok: 8:28am On Mar 28
MadCow1:



My take..

First and foremost Sir, you are a married man and your loyalty is to your wife and kids not your mother. This is the harsh and hard truth.

Secondly your mother has the least right when it comes to making demands in your matrimonial home. The mother of the baby refused to give her pictures of the baby and she has every right to do so because she is the mother. Remember that your mother's beef with your wife stems primarily from the fact that she is your mother so technically she is being served with her own medicine.

And the fact that your mother threw the first slap is even most shocking to me. Some wives would have laid her out with one blow.

Finally, if all efforts to genuinely broker peace fails, then in the interest of your immediate family, keep your mother in her home and keep your wife in hers. Nothing says they must be friends. But in all, your primary interest should be towards your wife not your mother.


And when his wife leaves him, he will run back to his mother.
Well our mothers are always forgiven.

there is no fire without smoke. that woman is your wife, while should the mum slap her in the first place. to tell u the truth, your mum is a visitor in your matrimony home and should abide by the norms and condition set be the wife. we nigerians are very sentimental about issues, the mum should be educated enough to know that you can't slap some people and go scot free especially if u re in the person's home.

You forget that she's also the daughter inlaw to the woman.

If she can slap her Mother in law, then she can slap her biological mother.

My advice stay and keep your family working. it's not right to send your wife out of the house on the grounds of family instruction.. this is 2015, not 1982 where families decide on whatever they feel like and then leave the pain to you and kids... No matter what, keep ur family intact... Mothers can be the sweetest and also can be the most annoying sometimes, but if she meant peace shld wouldn't have slapped ur wife or take such a decision while you were not at home... No matter what. your Mom will always remain your Mom, no family decision can change that, but as for your wife, it's ur happiness and kids happiness and ur Godly ordained blessings that they want to trample upon. May God give you a complete wisdom to handle the issue right... If it were me, I would scold my mom, my sistrr get friend and the family that said or gave the instruction... What they won't accept, they shld rub it off on u.. Simple!

This is 2015 and divorce rate is on the high side.

The wife is behaving that way to separate t
he man from his mother.This woman will destroying the man, then ru away.Thats code of 2015 selfish wifey.

I won't sacrifice my happiness for any selfish woman.
Marriage is not a must.

It's high time we go beyond partisan/ethnic/religious sentiments and say the truth when we see one, acknowlegde victory when we see one, and show gratitude/appreciation when it's required.
Those men on boots and helmets are my real heros..they are offering their today so that we might have tomorrow, so show them some love and gratitude, they have earned every ounce of it.

And how many times will GWOZA be recaptured?

2007:
Buhari got 6.6m votes when he ran against Yaradua under ANPP. Anpp had 6 Governors as incumbents.

2011:
He sran against GEJ and Got 12million votes.

Notice that he always score 12m against Christian Candidates but less against Muslim/Northern Yaradua.

This time, the vote will not be any much different. He doesn't even come close in all previous elections. He de depend on Old ACN wey no fit win SW for Atiku(

You forget that Buhari will get lots of voters from SE/SS.
The SW has changed from 2011, the candidates the for 2011 elections was Ribadu.

This is the first time Buhari will be getting lots of voters from the SW.

Politics / Re: INEC Releases Statistics Of PVC Collected In All 36 States And FCT by emmatok: 8:49pm On Mar 24
wiseoneking:


Pls before you start rejoicing be aware that there are atleast 2 million igbo voters in NW minus other minority southernerns and Christians that will change the tide. Go further and ask them here in Lagos and know the power of the igbo votes. SE zone is different from Igbo population. Remeber to always multiply the SE zone population by two, then you would appreciate the number of voters. By the way, SE has the lowest number of non indegines living in their zone. we will always give Jona a bulk voute of 98 but never in kano or other states/


SE PVC collections show how irrelevant SE voting power will be during the election.

The same Igbos threatened Fashola with their votes and Fashola still won.
Most Igbos have started shouting about the security issues on saturday, Some will stay at home, some will travel and few will vote.

Politics / Political Parties Spend N4.9bn On Political Adverts by emmatok: 10:07pm On Mar 22
Parties spend N4.9bn on political adverts

By Princewill Ekwujuru

With just five days to the March 28 elections, advertising spend on political campaigns has been estimated to have cost political parties, friends and well wishers of those seeking elective offices a princely N4.9 billion so far. However, federal and state advert regulatory agencies have expressed displeasure over publications of unapproved advert materials.
Campaign-posters
According to data gathered from different advert agencies and reports from advert regulatory bodies, the print media have so far raked in about N1.382 billion of the advert spend, with the All Progressives Congress, APC spending N332.503 million on its presidential candidate, while its Peoples Democratic Party, PDP counterpart spent N1.049 billion, which is 65.5 per cent higher than the amount spent by APC. Field reports further put other expenses on campaign rallies for PDP and APC at N1.057 billion and N595.082 million respectively. Both parties also spent N224.36 million on outdoor campaigns.
The broadcast campaign coverage for the presidential candidates were put at N508.35 million and N391.05 million for PDP and APC. Electronic media adverts were N733.9million for PDP and N555.6 million for APC respectively, bringing the total amount to N2.5 billion. In summary, a total of N4.973 billion has been spent on campaign expenses, with PDP and APC spending N3.549 billion and N1.424 billion respectively.

Sir, I do understand and appreciate your passion for watching reality TV, but I must remind you that such armchair observations recorded from the comfort of your living room in Lagos are of very limited practical significance, when it comes to understanding the operational policies of police forces outside of Nigeria.

Have a good day, and keep trying for that UK visa, so that you too can see with your own eyes how the law works outside of Nigeria.

LoL, you people can talk anyhow here, so UK visa is now so difficult.

KoloOyinbo:


Now we are converging! This is a definite possibility. Although my thought is that it should be recognised in passing and move on! I do my best to help.

I have been coming to Naija for 15 years training people.

Once on my course was a guy who kept arguing against everything I was teaching. He was easily proved wrong but at the end to cover his embarrassment he said:

Why do we need to pay you guys so much and bring you from Europe to train us. Why not use another Nigerian?

(A VERY valid question by the way and one I have GREAT sympathy for)

I answered simply:

If you had anyone here who COULD do it them you would be using THEM and not me. (Lack of Airfares etc would make it MUCH more economical).

Then I added:

If he had spent less time arguing (and it was simply that he wanted to prove an oyinbo wrong) and more time learning then HE could very well be one of those who WOULD be doing the training instead of me!

Lets stop looking for things to blame and work together to progress Africa!


This is exactly what the Asians, Japanese, Chinese e.t.c are doing to get developed.

Education / Re: Are Science Students Really More Intelligent Than Art Students? by emmatok: 10:53pm On Mar 19
fidnas:


intelligence and creativity are two distinct qualities and some theories believe there's a relationship btw both. A science student is more likely to show intelligence than creativity because learning is repetitive with little top ups once in a while. there's repetition of theories n formula passed from one generation to another. that does not mean that science students cannot be creative as well. hence the tech innovations, new formula etc. This also does not mean students in arts classes aren't intelligent. knowledge is passed but arts classes are more prone to allowing new ideas. hence d much creativity here.

A science student- intelligence
An arts student -- creativity

Business student-intelligence + creativity
