Family / Re: Is The Groom Responsible For All Bride's Family Attire? by fewj(m): 1:06am On Jun 28
It's issues like this that makes me very proud of my Yoruba roots and heritage !!!

There's absolutely no Yoruba Tribe where the groom is made to foot the cost of the attire of the bride's family !!! Wth!!

What happened to some dignity from the wife's family? Will the groom also bear the cost of the shoes, bags, cap, etc?


very few people have dignity these days

I'm sorry about your grandma and all the innocent citizens that have been caught up in this avoidable madness. The reality is, we as a people can't continue going in circles. Actions have to be taken, and I mean serious actions. If you dialogue with these avengers today, then another group of criminals will emerge tomorrow.

The government has been really fair in dealing with militants in the Niger/delta, but unfortunately the militants mistook the government's "fair deal" as cowardice. Is simple, if you are aggrieved about anything, violence is never the answer. And if you pick up arms against the state then you are probably inviting some anarchial situation in your home.

Anyway don't get stressed up, everything will be back to normal in some couple of days in the Niger/delta. We all want peace, but don't forget, some peace are gotten through brutal violence.

At this trying times in the niger/delta, May God continue to protect all the innocent fellows over there.

If you want to fight Niger Delta militants, boko haram, the devil and anything else, leave innocent citizens alone! This was the same thing the military was doing under GEJ until the amnesty international report, our security operatives must learn how to fight and not terrorize. Their actions have become a recruitment propaganda for negative elements in society.

That JUNK you called confabulation will not be implemented because it is unconstitutional, illegal and a waste of resources. Besides buhari isn't the appropriate "body" to implement it, your NA is the body to implement it. Buhari won't give in to any cheap blackmail from any part of this country. Militants say they will make his government ungovernable, we are keenly waiting for them. I promised you, the avengers or whatever they are called will regret the very first day they blew up a pipeline just to spite the president. And tompolo should pray very hard because when he is finally apprehended like the common criminal that he is, believe you me he will never be the same again.

Already the militants/economic terrorists asked for it because they thought they are somehow "invincible and untouchable", but the creeks will be comb and the rag tag militias will eventually be smoked out. It was done in sambisa forest which is by far bigger than the tiny creeks the avengers are hiding in, same thing will be repeated in the creeks.

BUHARI WILL NEVER DIALOGUE with any criminal group. Militancy in the Niger/delta will be stamped out once and for all

Militants don't live in villages, since the days of MEND, they setup their own camp out of the villages for secrecy, sadly our military acts like Nigerian police, when they arrive, it is innocent people trying to survive in very inhumane conditions (in comparison to how much the area accrues for Nigeria) that bare the brunt, my grandma slept in the bush last night because the army drove her from her thatch house and you're here jabbering from the comfort of your home. Nigerian army have invaded that region twice in two weeks, what results have they achieved? They just target and taunt innocent civilians.

What is wrong is wrong irrespective of who's doing it and why they're doing it.

Politics / Re: FG To Introduce Toll On Some Reconstructed Roads – Fashola by fewj(m): 11:18pm On Apr 30
We still don't have light and uncle fashola is now playing minister of transportation. Please mind your business and provide UNINTERRUPTED power supply!

The federal government is set to reintroduce toll on some roads that will be built or reconstructed.

The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola SAN, made the declaration while fielding questions as guest on the popular Channels Sunrise Daily programme.

The minister said it would be pretentious to assume that the roads would get better if we continued to make our roads absolutely toll free. He added that, there would however be alternative roads to the ones that would be tolled.

Fashola declared, “We should stop being pretentious that roads can be had for absolutely free everywhere. There will be toll roads if we want to get out of this situation. There will be alternative roads as well so that people can choose.”

Fashola also talked about severance package for ex-workers in the three ministries. He explained that the record he met showed that about 50,000 such workers were due severance pay and that about 47,000 have been paid representing about 97 per cent compliance.

“Now, for me, it is a clear evidence of an intention and good faith to pay. Pensioners are about 5,000 and 3,000 have been paid; that is more than 50 per cent compliant. When I queried the reasons for the delay, they told me there was a verification process going on and the approvals they had to spend money on that process had expired. I gave them a new approval”, the Minister further explained.

He said the seeming delay in payment was as a result of the verification exercise going on adding that the verification was due to the allegation that when the payment started “people were altering records, issuing employment letters at severance point and backdating them to people who were not members of staff”.

“That is what has delayed this process. The money to pay is there but they said they are not going to pay until they are sure of the people they are paying. So that process is going on. It has to be properly done and when it is completed we will pay. These are the issues. So when people get angry or agitated, it is to do so in a context”, he said, adding that it is not an unwillingness to pay as some people have already been paid.

On the call for review of the privatization policy especially with regards to the Power Sector, Fashola, who recalled that the nation’s refineries were concessioned in 2006, noted that there was agitation then “by the voices that we are now hearing”, that they shouldn’t have been concessioned adding that as a result, the YarÁdua administration responded to that and stopped the process.

He declared, “I think our choice as a nation must be experiential. The YarÁdua administration responded to the agitation and stopped the process. But that was in 2007; where are we today, nine years after? We still don’t have the quality of refineries we want”.

“The Ministry of Petroleum just shared with us the hard work they are doing getting the refineries back on after about seven years. Perhaps, as you are aware, Dangote is now building a refinery. Perhaps if we had allowed that process, and I think Dangote was one of the concessionaires at the time”, he said.

Noting that government could start reviewing and nothing would happen, Fashola said in lieu of reviewing, focus should be “on getting what is on the ground to work”, adding, “And that is what I am doing, that is what I’ve told you about getting all the various power plants to work”.

I never said petrol will sell for N40 per litre under Buhari – David-West
By Sylvester Ugwuanyi on April 11, 2016

A former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Prof Tam David-West who served when Muhammadu Buhari was the Head of State, has denied saying that President Buhari will crash the price of petrol to N40 per litre, regretting that he must have been misquoted.

This was as he stressed that it was shameful that Nigeria is still involved in importation of petroleum products despite having four refineries capable of meeting the energy needs of the country. He insisted that there is nothing wrong with the nation’s refineries.

The Professor of Virology who spoke to Daily Sun in a telephone interview at the weekend, clarified that he only canvassed the removal of some 14 items currently listed in the petrol pricing template as that which would help crash petrol price to N40.

All this noise that's almost be coming like that of Fayose, how is it adding value to the lives of the electoates in his Constituency?
The President's visits have continued to yield positive fruits whether he likes it or not. The latest is the over half a billion dollars that would have left UAE for Domnican Republic if not for the agreement signed between both Countries during one of these Visits.
That money alone is enough compensation. Besides, don't forget that America that hitherto refused selling arms to us are now even helping with the BH fight.

Thankfully I watched it, if not i'd have believed Op.

If shouting, refusing to hear out your interviewers, distorting the words of the president and ministers, giving hilarious facts means taking them to the cleaners then you're right.

Those that didn't watch it, please try and do to judge yourself.

Let me tell you what happened last, He said the ministers appear not to be doing anything that everything was at a standstill, Then they showed him a clip of Fashola inspecting power plants, Right there on live TV, the man twisted what fashola said to suit his narrative.

For those saying ChannelsTV is pro-APC, I can only laugh. Channels neutrality and objectivity have kept them above all other stations in Nigeria for a very long time now.

I didn't watch the interview, but I share the same opinion that the long awaited heavenly ministers are doing almost nothing after their appointment. I don't see how inspecting a project will boost power supply. They keep increase the tariff, increasing taxes and I keep spending a fortune on petrol to power my office and home and you have the effrontery, the impetus, impertinence, temerity, insolence, audacity and nerve to come online and argue against their their obvious sluggishness and breach of campaign promises, infact karma will answer you for me.

Same traditional ruler surrounded by PDP Flags. Once upon a time, Traditional rulers use to be very well respected in Nigeria, and then the Yahoo Traditional Rulers starting getting into Traditional Stools , and thus bringing our traditional institutions into the labyrinth of Jokes.

The late Ooni did it, when he openly turned into Osun State PDP Chairman by proxy.

The Traditional Ruler of Uromi is there.

The Late Obi of Agbor was shot by his own Palace Guards in the night while trying to rob his own guest.

There was John Nebolisa, a notorious armed robber and 419er, that was the Igwe of Akwusu in Anambra State.

The Late Onojie of Ekpoma was shot in the night by Robbers, while out chasing a female AAU student.

One Traditional ruler in OYO or OSUN raped a female Corps member.

And this one in Bayelsa, instead of sitting in his Palace, is busy politicking with thugs.

Everything in Nigeria has gone down the gutter.

And thats why its alright to shoot him? lets put partisanship aside and reject politically motivated violence!

Family / Good Grief! by fewj(m): 12:40am On Oct 02, 2015
People say i live in a big house, I’d always taught they flattered me until this night, I had come home to an empty house and for the first time i felt so lonely at home, my bedroom feeling audaciously enormous, i could feel every wind, hear every sound, it felt like the length, breath and height of this house had increased and the atmosphere had become thicker such that it took so much strength to move my feet within the house.

How did I get here?
I woke up this morning with lots of adrenaline running through my veins, the pump of today being October 1st, the holiday and festivity, the long list of amazingly carefully thought out events for the day. Sadly this feeling didn’t last very long, pretty soon I remembered the long list of responsibilities and heavy duty logistics that i needed to ensure didn’t fail, it didn’t take long before the adrenaline and pump disappeared, before long, i was thinking of the irony of the celebration amidst all the many many problems of Nigeria, what are we even celebrating i asked myself, is it the boko-haram onslaught, or the bad roads and the many problems of this country (oh please, don’t even get me started.), pretty soon i was in a full fledge plunge into depression.

Suddenly i heard the door bell, it was Lugard, one of my many sidekicks for the day, he had come to pick up keys to the bus and other things need for logistics, why is he here so early i thought, switched on my phone it was already past seven, Oh! i had been in bed for about two hours soliloquising!

The rest of the day breezed past as I didn’t really participate in the rest of the festivities, I however did try to ensure every process and requirements for the day were met, done and went as planned. I got back to Warri at about past five in the evening, reviewed items and itinerary to ensure everything was atleast ok, and then i got the call, the bomb shell! I still recall my head spinning, and me screaming at the top of my voice in both hurt and disbelieve!

Aaron had just called me, he’s one of my few guys that I have, i wouldn't really say were best of FRIENDS, but we’re definitely better than acquaintances but its sorta in-between, off and on, on a need/situation/event basis.

He sounded very odd, he sounded like he’d been crying, maybe because I’ve known him for over 10 years, i could tell he was the one, (even truecaller couldn’t identify this number he was calling with), he told me how he’s been trying to reach me all day and couldn't get me (I was out of reception coverage), i didn’t bother explaining, i could tell something was really wrong, he told me how he’d been in my really good friend’s house all day and how that something terrible had happened and he needed to tell me.

I’ve got this friends i got to know sometime in 2004 while in the university, the were instrumentalists like me, we had come to meet in a Christ Embassy church and became very close, we did most things together, we had highs and lows, funny moments and embarrassing ones jointly and serverally, we were so close that everytime i imagined the future, they were a part of it, Isaiah Obi and Joseph Guwo had become a very integral part of my life and we always somehow kept in touch even though isaiah lives in a different city. Joe as we call him went on to marry his college sweet heart chinenye (chinny as we would call her) a fews years after graduation, while in the university she had also become a part of our clique like a few others.

Suddenly i snapped back to reality, all the tiredness of the day had disappeared, what did you just say i retorted, Frank he said, Joe your friend is dead, he died in a motor accident, he was travelling to abuja in a greener line vehicle, they had an accident and there are no survivors!

I hissed and ended the call, Aaron can be a bit naughty, i just thought his level of naughtiness had increased by an extra-ordinary amplitude and i didn’t find it funny. Few minutes after the call i started to worry, i thought about it for a while and decided not to call Joe’s wife as Joe’s number was switched off, i felt if this was Aaron’s prank, it would be super weird to let chinny know about it, i thought about asking her in different ways but finally decided against it, so i decided to call the third “musketeer" as we call ourselves and he confirmed the news, he had also been trying to reach me!

I drove with such urgency, with such numbness to his home, burst through the doors without really knocking, Chinny was sitting in the couch by the door, there were a lot of unfamiliar faces, it was then i began to cry, who would have thought Frank could cry like that? I held on to Chinny’s arm so tightly as if that would take away the pain i felt inside. I starred into her eyes and what i saw was unimaginable, words and space would fail me to describe, for the first time i saw this strange emptiness, this awkward sadness in her eyes, i just couldn’t help but cry more! I know what they’ve been through together, pre-marriage and post marriage, how we celebrated and admired their union and he now has left so suddenly after less than four years of their marriage.

As i write this, i can only imagine the pain she’s going through, never in my life have i felt so small, so helpless and hapless, so weak and incapacitated, i didn’t know what to tell her, i muttered some words in the few hours i stayed, can’t really remember the disjointed, disoriented and incoherent wordings, In those moments, all my cares and worries, my dreams, aspirations and tiredness from the long day where inconsequential, all gone and replaced by this strange quantum of grief, sadness and depression!

If there was ever anything that shook the very tenants of the things i hold dear and believe, this was it, if there was ever a time i really did question the essence of life, its struggles and challenges, this was it!

Here i am, sitting in this cold tiled stairs, typing so fast and sobbing, if Joe could die just like that? maybe ………………………..

Joe pace, Mr Guwo, Eshin, My drummer boy, so you left us like this? for what now? Palley no be so!

There's a clear difference between accountability and releasing false, misleading and worthless accusations on the internet..

Politics / Re: The Many Incredible Roles Of DSS Under President Muhammadu Buhari by fewj(m): 5:13pm On Aug 04, 2015
1. Dasuki's case was one bordering on National security and they went with a warrant. It was during the search they discovered the cars. You might know (I don't think you know anyway) that to own a bulletproof car, you must have been cleared by all National security agencies including the DSS. So they were well within their constraints

2. Still Dasuki. They found on him high powered rifles which no one would have issued licence for. What is that, national security or what?

3. When oil marketers went on strike, the country was all but shut down. I think it is fair if we call our energy sector a national security one. In the USA, the FBI are called in issues of Economics that might threaten internal security or a cartel purposely hiking prices

4. Stop being a clown. When the DSS was used to escort electoral materials, you did not know you were also going to have them involved all through?

5. This is hilarious. The DSS can actually go into any crime scene they want and it is then their choice on whether to intervene or not. No arrests were made and they left them to their issues.

You people make this too easy

What is the mandate of the DSS?
Programming / How To Install Laravel on OS x by fewj(m): 9:23am On Aug 04, 2015
How To Install Laravel on OS x
If you’re reading this, chances are you are already in love with laravel, you probably have seen a couple of advantages laravel has over other frameworks, seen a tutorial video or read an article that has sparked your interest in laravel. However, loving laravel is one thing, installing it is another.

I personally got acquainted with laravel just before version 5 was released, but somehow I kept postponing diving into it, sadly, at the time I decided to, laravel 5 had been released and most of the instructions I found online for installation where either for a none XAMPP user or for version 4 for a XAMPP user and this was a pain!

So you don’t go spend so much time looking for a solution like I did, I’ve decided to be your knight in shinny armor, here’s how to install Laravel 5 on XAMMP for Mac OS X.


OSX by default has PHP pre-installed, so when you install XAMPP, you’ll actually be installing a second PHP version on your MAC. Your Computer decides which to use depending on if internet sharing is on (System preferences/sharing) or if xampp server is on and apache is started. To know which version of PHP you system is using by default, open terminal, run “which php” without the quotes.

If what you get IS NOT “/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/bin/php”, here’s how to correct it

Create a file called .bash_profile on your home directory (if you don’t have this file already) from terminal, to do this run the following commands one line at a time
