Politics / Atiku May Collect ₦1 As Salary If Elected As Nigeria's President. by icnsystem(m): 1:45pm On Oct 27
INDICATIONS emerged at the weekend that presidential aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC); Atiku Abubakar would simply be contented with N1 as his annual salary if he emerges the President of the country.

Already, the former Vice President may have accepted in principle the recommendations of a memo on the subject, ahead of the Policy Retreat Review at the Obasanjo Presidential Library, which gets underway Monday.

The decision, according to The Guardian’s source is predicated on the avowed commitment of the leading APC presidential to “give back to Nigeria for all that the country has done for him.”

Atiku had at the declaration of his intent to contest the 2015 presidential election said he would continue to give back to Nigeria for as long as he is able and capable.

The source confided in The Guardian that the balance of the salary that would have accrued to Atiku Abubakar should he emerge as President will be deployed to people-oriented charities of his choice.

“I believe that Turaki may be considering taking a token salary of N1 not because he is endowed like so many others but to underscore his preparedness to make personal sacrifices in the quest to rebuild and reinvent our dear country and by so doing engender a culture of sacrifice in his envisaged administration,” the source said.


However, when contacted Mallam Garba Shehu, Coordinator of Atiku Media Office said he was unaware of this development. He, however, said that nothing is off the table at the policy review retreat.

Meanwhile, the Policy Review Retreat promised by Atiku at the unveiling of his economic policy in Abuja October 15 kicks off on Monday at the Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta the Ogun State capital.

Nairaland / General / Nigerians Are Missing My Late Father –abacha’s Daughter by icnsystem(m): 8:05am On Oct 03
Gumsu, daughter of the late maximum ruler, Gen. Sani Abacha, has claimed that Nigerians have been missing her father’s dictatorial leadership.

The late dictator’s daughter stated that she came to this conclusion after having closely monitored people’s comments on the trends of political events via social media.

Writing on her Twitter page, Gumsu claimed that “all of a sudden” she now also misses her late father.

“All of a sudden I miss my late father. And I realise that Nigerians miss his leadership everyday when I read people’s comments on social media.

“Whatever you think remains your opinion. He was a loving and caring father. He had a good heart. He was the best ever.

“Happy 54th Independence Day to all my Nigerian brothers and sisters. We shall keep rising! May our nation’s tomorrow be brighter, stronger, prosperous, and safer,” a series of messages on Gumsu’s Twitter page read.

Meanwhile, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, ‘’’ Muazu, has lamented that poor Nigerians fight themselves in a bid to protect the interest of politicians.

According to Muazu, members of the ruling class whom the “poor and helpless” fight their cause are more united in achieving their political dreams.

In his Independence Day message, the PDP national leader said the masses must reject the “divide and rule” method of the ruling class.

Unity of the masses, he argued, was not in words, adding that Nigerians should begin showing it in actions as the nation celebrates her 54th Independence from colonial rule.

“The disunity and division in our nation are more visible among the poor and the helpless. Even those who divide you are united.

“Unity is not in words, it is in action. Patriotism is not for the lips, it is shown by your actions.

“Reject their divide- and-rule methodology and Nigeria will remain one indivisible entity strong and glorious.

“Happy 54th Independence Day, my great nation. Usman, have you called Tolu to tell him you appreciate him and that he is your brother wishing him ‘happy independence’?

“Make few calls across borders, reach out today and reassure them of your love, respect, admiration and loyalty,” the PDP national chairman preached.

A former Governor of Kwara State, Dr. Bukola Saraki, on his part, said both the masses and the ruling class must continue to work and pray for a better Nigeria.

Saraki, who represents the Kwara Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly, expressed optimism that “a lot of good can and will come out of Nigeria.”

Describing it as a great country, Saraki noted that the heroes and heroines worked for the unity of Nigeria as well as the health and safety of the Nigerian people.

“How often do you remember the real heroes and heroine of the battle against Ebola in Nigeria? Truly, we must not forget the real heroes and heroines that fought and won the battle against Ebola in Nigeria

“Happy 54th Independence Day. We must continue to work and pray for a better Nigeria. I pay homage to the gallant soldiers who have died in defence of our sovereignty and heroes that have worked to maintain our democracy.

“I salute the soldiers on battlefield confronting our enemies to make sure that at every October 1st, we can come together to commemorate our independence.

“I remember Chibok girls, who as of today, have been in clutches of the enemy for 170 days. One hundred and seventy days is 170 days too many,” he explained.

The former governor, however, lamented that he was being harassed by politicians aspiring to hold various political offices ahead of the 2015 general elections.

According to him, many of the politicians who have since shown interest in the All Progressives Congress as a platform to aspire their dreams, seek his support without getting their constituency’s backing.

“I keep getting SMS, tweets and calls about candidates interested in different offices. I say to you, ‘Go back home and let people recommend you.

“Anyone who believes in me should be with my people all the time. Not those that come back four months to election. The people must recommend you.

“APC politicians that want to contest in 2015, endeavour to be heavyweight at home and not only in great hall. No automatic ticket for anyone.

“No one is perfect, including my humble self, but continuously, I have tried to improve on a daily basis with the support of my people. We will put forward credible candidates,” Saraki added.

Sports / ‘glamour Model’ Fooled Into Giving Birth To Fake Footballer’s Child by icnsystem(m): 10:42pm On Sep 29
A wannabe WAG claims she was conned into believing her boyfriend was Hull City captain Curtis Davies for 18 months – and only realised she'd been duped hours before giving birth to the fraudster’s child.

Josie Cunningham – who is best known for having undergone nearly £5,000 worth of cosmetic bosom enhancement surgery on the NHS – says she was “manipulated” into having a relationship with a man pretending to be the Premier League defender.

And she is now having his baby, having gone into labour at the weekend.

Davies, who has played for West Brom, Aston Villa, Leicester and Birmingham, is hardly a celebrity footballer, making this story even more absurd.

A journeyman centre-back who has spent his career between the top flight and the Championship, Davies said he was "disappointed" in the story, which had "no legs."

Cunningham, 24, claimed she was “physically fooled” by the man, who she says is a Davies look-a-like, after he sent her photos of the 29-year-old while romancing her online.

The pair went on to have a relationship, meeting for sex in hotels, with Cunningham telling friends she was dating an unnamed Premier League star. They did not believe her, but she insisted she had bedded the star.

She only realised he was a fraud just before entering labour this weekend.

“I feel so dirty, ashamed and devastated. I've been completely manipulated by a man for 18 months pretending to be a Premiership footballer,” she said in a lengthy statement to nearly 56,000 Twitter followers.

“We weren’t in a full-blown relationship, so I didn’t see him too much. That’s how he managed to keep the lie going.

“I know I’m not that clever.”

Josie's Twitter account also features several screenshots from Facebook, where she explained the fraud in full, and some more explicit references to their relationship.

She also apologised to friend and manager Rob Cooper, who she admits warned her of the possibility that her boyfriend was not who he claimed to be.

Cunningham rejected his advice, even after asking the man to Tweet her, which he did from a clearly fake account.

It is a bizarre tale exposing the desperation for fame in modern society, and the submission of some young women to footballers, not to mention the dangers of social media and online dating.

There is also a melancholy to her comments – the lack of self confidence, the willingness to define herself by a secret relationship with a middle-ranking footballer, the dating website she has set up, tragically named "Pull the Pig".

Davies, who lives with his long-term partner, is understood to have never met Cunningham

Food / Restaurant Owner Admits To Lacing Customers’ Noodles With Opium To Get Them Hook by icnsystem(m): 3:21pm On Sep 26
The owner of a noodle restaurant in Shaanxi in China has confessed to adding opium to his dishes in order to ensure customers would keep coming back.

The noodles seasoned with an ingredient used to make opium were discovered when Liu Juyou tested positive for drugs during a routine urine test by traffic police, according to the Xi’an Evening News.

Juyou was adamant he hadn’t taken drugs and started to suspect the noodle shop he’d eaten at hours before. Relatives who also ate there took drug tests, and all came back positive.

According to the Hua Shang Bao daily via the BBC, the restaurant owner named Zhang, admitted to buying poppy buds containing seeds and crushed them into a powder to spread on his noodles. The powder, if it is allowed to build up, can give a positive drug test.

Health / Ebola:don Recommends Insects As Substitute For `bush Meat’ by icnsystem(m): 3:40pm On Sep 16
Prof. Chukwunenye Anene, on Tuesday advised Nigerians to harness insects as alternative rich sources of protein to other sources of protein or `bush meat’ causing Ebola Virus Disease (EVD).

Anene, who is the Dean, Faculty of Natural Sciences in Anambra State University, gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Igbariam near Onitsha, Anambra.

The don said that with targeted research it would be possible to convert and harness some insects to produce rich protein for a very large population.

Anene, who is a Professor of Entomology and Insect Pest Management, noted that it was regrettable that very delicious and well-known sources of protein (animal meats) in Africa, especially West Africa, are today dreaded by people.

“Insects should no longer be called pests but treated fairly as food substances and alternative source of protein.

“And where the regular protein from meat is been jettisoned by many, insect could as well replace these sources of protein for man.

“So there is a need for a co-ordinated research in this direction since it had been found out that some insects, which are helpful to man, have high protein content,’’ he said.

Anene, however, urged humans to stop the indiscriminate killing of insects as they play vital role in the existence of man.

The don also advised to health workers not to subdue all insects at the same time through their in-door and out-door non-selective residual spraying as well as other unhealthy environmental practices.

Some Africans, especially those in the West Africa, have stopped eating animal meat from the wild (bush meat), which is an available and rich source of protein, due to the EVD traceable to some wild animals.

WHO has reported that the disease has claimed the lives of about 2,500 people in the West African region since it broke-out in March.

Violent/Disgusting Non-Celebrity Crimes / Man Molests man in Lagos by icnsystem(m): 7:09am On Sep 16
A terrifying ordeal occurred in Lagos last month when a man held down another man and Molested him, a police prosecutor told an Abule Egba Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

The prosecutor, Insp. Racheal Williams alleged that the accused had drugged his victim before Molesting him.

“When the complainant woke up, his anus was paining him and there was some left-over Fluid in it,’’ she said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the accused, 38-year-old Sali Malu, a gatekeeper, lives at 31, Peace Estate, Ipaja, a suburb of Lagos.

He is facing a two-count charge of intimate assault and causing a breach of peace.

The accused pleaded not guilty to the charge of Molesting a fellow gatekeeper (names withheld) and breach of peace.

Williams said the offences were committed on March 23 in the house of the accused.

“The complainant (names withheld), who is also a gatekeeper in the estate, went to the room of the accused to charge his phone.

“The accused gave him food to eat. The man did not know that the food had been laced with drug.

“After eating the food, he slept off only to wake up to the reality that he had been Molested,’’ she told the court.

The offences, according to the prosecutor, contravene Section 166 (d) and 259 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

Ruling on the bail application of the accused, the Magistrate, Tajudeen Elias, granted the accused a bail of N500, 000 with two sureties in like sum.

The case has been adjourned to May 5 for mention. (NAN)

Health / “ewedu” Can Prevent And Cure Ebola – LUTH Consultant by icnsystem(m): 11:59pm On Sep 04
A consultant at the Lagos University Hospital (LUTH), Idi-Araba, Professor Adebukola Ositelu, has said Ewedu ‎which is known in English as the Long-Fruited vegetable, is capable of preventing and curing the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) by boosting the immune system.

Ositelu stated this at the annual African Traditional Medicine Day organised by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) on Thursday, at Ikeja, Lagos.

According to her, the vegetable had a high potency to boost the immune system such that it’s usage would prevent an individual from being infected with Ebola, or get rid of the virus in the case of an infected person.

She, however, noted that chances of being cured by an intake of Ewedu when a victim has gotten to the stage of vomiting was low, but could still be administered.

Ositelu, who is a professor of ‎Ophthalmology at the University of Lagos, Akoka (UNILAG), said to administer the ‘treatment’, the Ewedu should be rinsed thoroughly with liquid vinegar “blend and cook with drinkable water, without adding salt or kaun (pottash) or any other ingredients; then take a 25cl or half a tumbler measure once a week, first thing in the morning before any meal” for prevention, adding that those already infected should take it every morning for seven to five days.

Health / 9 Things You Didn't Know About Sperm by icnsystem(m): 12:57pm On Aug 19
We've all heard the rumors about sperm--pineapple, hot tubs, ladies who are allergic. But what's the truth? We consulted the experts for the facts:

It's Fast and Furious, Right from the Start

Get this: The first moment of expulsion contains the highest concentration of sperm, says board-certified urologist Dr. Harry Fisch, clinical professor of reproductive medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University.

It Sticks Around Longer Than You Think

Sperm typically stays in your body for 48 hours after sex, however, "it can hang around for as long as five days to a week," depending on how "friendly" your cervical mucus is, says Fisch. Interestingly, cervical mucus protects sperm and helps it stay longer in the body around ovulation, when you're most fertile.

Lots of Sex or self-service Won't Lower a Guy's Sperm Count

Don’t worry, he doesn’t have a limited supply of swimmers that he's going to use up, says reproductive endocrinologist Dr. Carrie Wambach, from Southern California Reproductive Center in Los Angeles. That said, frequent expulsion may lower the volume, but if he generally has a normal sperm count this shouldn't make much of an impact, she says.

Temperature CAN Lower His Sperm Count

Apparently, his Fluid fluctuates with the seasons. "Sperm count tends to be lowest in summer months and highest in winter months," says Fisch, because exposure to heat lessens sperm count. Overheating can include anything as seemingly innocuous as your man having a hot Macbook on his lap or as obvious as the two of you relaxing in a hot tub. "In a Jacuzzi 104 degrees and higher, sperm count can decrease dramatically," warns Fisch. In fact, this decrease can last for months after extreme overexposure to high temps. "I tell my patients, if you're trying to have kids, don't go into hot tubs." Of course, don't assume you're totally safe from getting pregnant after you take a dip, either. "It's not birth control," he laughs.

Pineapple Isn't Proven to Make Him Taste Better

Unfortunately, scientists haven't tested this one out yet (can somebody get on that, though?). Fluid does contain fructose (naturally occurring sugar), giving it a slightly sweet taste, but there's never been a real study on the connection between foods a guy eats and the taste of his swimmers, says Fisch. However, this rumor has a ton of anecdotal evidence, so if it seems to work for your partner, we say go ahead and grab the pineapple.

Male and Female Sperm are Created Equal

Sperm either have the X or Y chromosome, but their chances of making it don’t differ, says Fisch. The idea that one type is more resilient or swims faster than the other is just a myth.

MORE: The Weird Thing That Can Mess with a Man's Fertility

It's Super Rare to Be Allergic to Sperm

We've all heard that women can be allergic to sperm, causing inflammation or redness, but both Fisch and Wambach say that it's very, very rare to be allergic. "I'd look to other factors, like a womanly infection, first," says Fisch. There has also been one study on a sexually transmitted allergy to Brazil nuts (where a woman had an allergic reaction to her partner's sperm after he ate the nuts). But again, cases like this are extremely rare. In the unusual case you are diagnosed as allergic, wearing a condom can prevent irritation.

Sperm Has a Pretty Intense Journey Before the Grand Finale

It takes about two and a half months to prep all the sperm expelled in the average expulsion. It initially forms in the testicles then moves up to the epididymis. Then fully formed sperm travels through the vas deferens and swings by the seminal vesicles where it mixes with a fluid to form Fluid. Finally, the prostate adds the last little bit of fluid before expulsion.

Your Guy's Health Affects His Sperm

"Sperm may be healthier for men under 40," says Wambach. "And they'll definitely be healthier in men who avoid things like smoking, a high-fat diet, and environmental toxins." So if you're considering starting or expanding your family, keep that in mind.

Nairaland / General / Second Wedding For 9-year-old Boy & His 61-year-old Wife by icnsystem(m): 6:02pm On Jul 29
A nine-year-old schoolboy has become one of the world’s youngest grooms for the second time – marrying his 62-year-old wife again. Looking a little taller in last year’s silvery tuxedo, baby faced Saneie Masilela clutched the hand of Helen Shabangu as they repeated their vows one year on. Last year the boy, from nearby Tshwane, tied the knot with bride Helen after claiming he had been told by his dead ancestors to wed. Shockingly his family took the message from the heavens seriously and hurriedly forked out £500 for the bride and a further £1,000 for the big day. The second marriage ceremony was this time held at the home of the blushing bride in Ximhungwe in Mpumalanga, South Africa, in front of around 100 guests. Wide-eyed residents looked on as the married mother-of-five shared a piece of cake, a toast and even a kiss with her young groom Sanele – and long-term husband Alfred Shabangu, 66.

Politics / North Korea Leader Execute His Uncle by icnsystem(m): 2:59pm On Dec 13, 2013
(CNN) -- As the shock sinks in of North Korea's extraordinary announcement of the execution of leader Kim Jong Un's uncle and former protector, government officials and analysts are trying to decipher what the brutal move means.

The ruthless disposal of Jang Song Thaek -- Kim's uncle by marriage who had, until recently, been regarded as the second-most powerful figure in the secretive, nuclear-armed nation -- has serious implications for North Korea, its neighbors and the United States, observers said.

But exactly what is going on inside the notoriously opaque North Korea regime remains as murky as ever.

"We don't have a clear sense of this at all," said Victor Cha, a senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies who represented the United States in nuclear talks with North Korea.

Addis Ababa – The Police in Kenya said Tuesday said they were battling to contain a new trend of commercial sex tourism that targets young boys in the coastal towns of the country .
The reports monitored from a local radio station, quoted Police as saying the trend had caused the rise in the sale pampers in the region due to the rising health problems among boys indulging in the act.
Malindi sub county Deputy Police Commissioner, Joshua Nkanatha told Kenya local radio that boys from poor families were being lured into the trade by rich male tourists.
The Police official said the situation had lead to an increase in number of cases of HIV/AIDS spread in the area.
“A survey we conducted shows that boys engaging in intimate activities with male tourists are buying pampers because they can no longer hold their stool, “Nkanatha said.
Nkanatha, who spoke during a Public Baraza at HGM primary school, Malindi said “male prostitution had become high
in Malindi and contributing to increased cases of HIV and AIDS.
He urged educated and concerned members of the public to take up the responsibility of enlightening the youths
about the health risks of engaging in the vice.
Malindai is a resort town on the outskirt of Nairobi, the Kenyan Capital which attracts Tourists from within and outside Africa.

Family / Re: Raising A Child To Speak English In Nigeria: Is It Proper? by icnsystem(m): 3:35pm On May 06, 2013
It's widely believed in the west that sub-sahara African lack strong sense of identity.Though as a black African i found this analysis very insulting and repulsive.But a careful reflection and study of our society will attest to the authenticity of this claim.Nowhere across the world are kids forced to speak foreign languages and culture at the expense of mother's tongue at home.
Even ex-British colonies of India,pakistan,west-indies,e.t.c, children are raised with native language and culture thereby giving them very strong sense of identity.But Today,it's only in sub-sahara Africa,we have these backward mentality that equates fluency in English as measure of intelligent quotient.That is the biggest lie and propaganda.A sub-Sahara African child raised at home with native language and culture fare better in life intellectually & morally than the kids raised entirely with western values and language.Conduct an empirical research before antagonising me.
Back in my days in school, we were told that speaking our native language was vernacular and we pay fine if anyone is caught speaking native language in class.That's the greatest fraud and blackmail accepted by our parents because they lack sense of identity.Most socio-cultural values of sub-sahara Africa origin are fast vanishing because our parents denied us values that reflect our heritage through native language.We know that written tradition is easier to pass to next generation than oral tradition.That's sub-sahara's misfortune
Even if you have FIRST CLASS PHD in English or other foreign language there are still core socio-cultural values you cannot decipher from these foreign language.Not until i travelled to Europe,i never knew that the white man blackmailed us by telling us our language was vernacular and speaking queens English is sign of intelligence and accomplishments.What a fraud

This is not the time to criticize our military in Mali.If we refuse to discourage these Jihadist from spreading their campaign of terror,Nigeria and the whole Africa will surely pay huge price for sitting on the fence.
Our Troops should be supported,encouraged and well motivated to perform this supreme price of securing our peaceful co-existence and future.This is not the time to talk from both side of the mouth on security issues.Our sense of communal survival should be stronger than ever because,we are all in this together.We have decided to send our Son,Daugther,Brother,uncle,cousin,niece,sister,e.t.c,in "HARM'S WAY".Criticizing them now is tantamount to exposing their flanks to terrorists.
My prayer is that non of our military men in Mali should die,kidnapped or held hostage in terrorist or enermy(s)den.As a citizen of this great nation,i personally share their Joy and Pain in the battle to secure our freedom..WE SHALL NEVER MOURN THEM BUT CELEBRATE AND SAVOUR THEIR SWEET VICTORY.Because through their supreme sacrifice our Freedom to worship the supreme being in whatever way we damned fit is surely guaranteed.GOD BLESS THESE MEN & WOMEN OF GREAT ENCOURAGE

We are in this mess today because some Nigerian citizens have no single sense of personal identity,entitlement and decency.In a brash attempt to defend infamy,they throw their heritage and birthright to the dogs.Lack of sound education,poverty syndrome,paternal deficiency and neurological disorder have make some folk useless that they lost the capacity to engage in intellectual discourse.
Politics / Paying James Ibori's Pension:is Delta State Govt Right Or Wrong? by icnsystem(m): 9:08am On Dec 29, 2012
As a criminal that captured the governor's office by altering and concealing his criminal records,identity & looted state's treasury,MR,James Onanefe Ibori ,his cronies,family & others across the federation should be barred from accessing state fund or benefit (pension),but if these felons are to enjoy state funds via pension,then what is wrong dedicating funds to appease Boko-Haram,Kidnappers,armed-robbers & other miscreants?After all,the root of these violent crimes are attributable to greed,recklessness and shortsightedness of our elite. or is someone saying some criminals are more handsome than the other?But hold on !I'm not in anyway advocating that any criminals should be rewarded in cash or kind.But James Ibori earning pension from state he onsciously looted has serious consequence and precedence..Paying him pension is an encrypted coded message and signal to Criminals of different shades and background.We must pay serious attention to our sense of reward!Quoted from:

Violent/Disgusting Non-Celebrity Crimes / Man Hides 2.6KG Of Cocaine In Roasted Chicken by icnsystem(m): 11:24pm On Sep 01, 2012
Officials of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency at the weekend arrested an auto technician in connection with 2.655kg of cocaine hidden inside roasted chicken.
The seizure was made at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos during the inward clearance of passengers on a Turkish Airline flight from Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The street value of the seized drug is about N24 million.

The NDLEA Airport Commander, Mr. Hamza Umar, who gave the name of the suspect as Vincent Chegini Chinweuwa, described the seizure as remarkable.
Umar explained that the suspect had given investigators useful information.
“We discovered 2.655kg of cocaine hidden inside roasted chicken. It is a remarkable seizure because no one would have imagined cocaine worth several millions inside roasted chicken,” Hamza stated.

During interrogation, the suspect said he thought that the drug will not be detected.

Chinweuwa said: “It took me three days to pack the cocaine inside the roasted chicken.
“I was confident that the drug will not be detected.
“I have been living in Brazil since 2006.
“Life has been stressful because I cannot even visit my wife in Nigeria due to lack of money.
“I wanted some money to start any business of my choice back home.
“Unfortunately, I was disappointed upon arrival in Lagos.”

Meanwhile, the Chairman/Chief Executive of the NDLEA, Ahmadu Giade, said that spectacular seizures like this will help to discourage others from the criminal drug trade.
“The suspect thought his mode of drug concealment was perfect but we proved him wrong. Several drugs cleverly hidden by drug barons have been discovered and we shall continue to detect drugs regardless of the mode of concealment,” Giade said.
The suspect, who hails from Imo State, will soon be charged to court.
