So I have heard from a friend and you guys might just be right afterall. It means one has to now approach and assess matters of the heart with a permanent pinch of salt.
|Politics / Re: Amaechi: I Didn't Join APC To Become VP!! by Ilekokonit: 2:37am On Dec 21|
True. And Nigeria is probably more corrupt than Russia is.
So, is this man as powerful, decisive and strong, as Putin? I doubt it, and age isn't even on his. Hence I'm not too optimistic about anything. Regardless, he's still 100 times better than GEJ.
I had my qualms when his party merged with Tinubu's ACN to start with as Tinubu is one "super" corrupt carpet bagger but I was heart gladdened when I read that he vehemently told Tinubu to his face that instead of having Tinubu as his VP, he would rather resign as the party's Presidential candidate, So there is still fire in the old dog and with the guys clean living, he is not dying very soon and even if he tries to sanitise the system in 4 years and then resigns, he would have set the stage and path to Nigeria's re-emergence as not a joke but a country to be reckoned with in the comity of nations. Even Obasanjo as corrupt as he is created the EFCC which scares the s.hit out of corrupt politicians talk less of what a non-corrupt Buhari will do. And if Buhari sets the stage for a non-corrupt nigeria in 4 years and then steps down for a Fashola or even a non-corrupt PDP President after 4 years then his work is done.
Even if Goodluck as clueless as he is renounces corruption unequivocally today, he will get my vote. My problem is not with Goodluck, my grouse is with corrupt politicians of ALL parties. Tinubu included, Buhari excluded.

I'm speechless and frustrated at the same time. Speak of arrested development. If only we had a non corrupt leadership ?

The major problem at the root cause of ALL of Nigeria's problem is corruption by politicians of ALL parties. The USP of Buhari is like you say Nostalgia but good Nostalgia and the HOPE that with the mans obvious frugal lifestyle and lack of corruption or sticky fingere.d tendencies, Nigerias wealth may become more equitably distributed amongst the millions who are currently suffering and smiling.
For me, an old, dunce who is non-corrupt is better as Nigeria's President that a young smart thief.
Buhari ruled for just 20 months before being toppled by a Corrupt Babangida who was scared Buhari's probe of corrupt senior Officers was getting too close for comfort.
Buhari was a thorn in the flesh of corrupt politicians that he replaced. For starters their stolen cash became too hot to handle for them 'cos a masterstroke of Buhari's was for him to unexpectedly change the design and colour of naira bills in 1984 thus forcing everyone who had naira in their posession to go to the banks to exchange the old notes for the new ones. Now corruptly enriched ex-politicians dared not take their loot to the bank to exchange as the fear of Buhari then was the beginning of wisdom.
Buhari stands head and shoulders above the rest in terms of his frugality and honesty. Buhari is simply a cut above Jonathan in terms of integrity and all Nigerians know this.

In other words, women don't like men who are sincere with them but will adore a man who pretends he is giving them what he is not. And to think that women have always being like that even since 1748.
In fact, the man is also saying that only weak men trust women. Now that is scary.

Means that I have to brush up on my rusty chess and utilise its tactics religiously when it comes to dating.
But doesn't that take out the spontaneity out of love or is love really and truly dead like everything in the world seems to point to ?
|Family / Re: The Manipulated Man - A Book By Esther Vilar by Ilekokonit: 11:06pm On Dec 20|
True talk. Especially if you are someone who is naturally trusting. Marriage is becoming worse than politics by the day. More like Russian roulette.
|Family / Re: Man Fights Wife Cus Dad Bought Her A New Car by Ilekokonit: 8:34pm On Dec 20|
That means you want your daughters marriage to last. But some FIL's especially the ones who only had daughters themselves repeat the error of thinking they can bully their son in law like they bullied their daughters and wives. Their error eventually proves fatal for their daughters marriage.
No man wants to be controlled by another man. Men are that territorial.
|Family / Re: Man Fights Wife Cus Dad Bought Her A New Car by Ilekokonit: 8:26pm On Dec 20|
EVERY body pre-marriage fails to realise that the wedding day is a 100 metre dash but the "marriage proper" is a marathon that only lasts if you patiently waited until you met your soul mate. fools rush in where angels fear to thread. Inlaws and outlaws should be circumspect in meddling directly or indirectly in a couples affairs especially when it comes to finances or the lack of it.
|Family / Re: Man Fights Wife Cus Dad Bought Her A New Car by Ilekokonit: 8:09pm On Dec 20|
I'll add that Marriage is a completely different kettle of fish with some dynamics that even the Pope can not comprehend.
A marriage may be tottering on the bring but an outsider including inlaws and outlaws may not know this and any real or perceived intrusion or perceived judgemental presents and/or criticisms from any parent might be just the final nail in the coffin of a marriage that is beginning to tire one or both parties.
A muslim father would probably have given the car gift to the couple jointly so as not to unintentionally call the mans capabilities into question. (I've seen this in real life).
Its possible that the husband has some hidden animosity towards his father in law from past issues that borders on the father in law's unwillingness to release his daughter from his apron strings or maybe the father in law had meddled in their marriage openly or covertly in the past.
|Family / Re: Man Fights Wife Cus Dad Bought Her A New Car by Ilekokonit: 8:03pm On Dec 20|
Now, I get your logic.
Basically what you are saying is that the parent of one party to a marriage should not use the other parties perceived or real weakness to spite that party.
It happens a lot in nigerian marriages where for example the husbands mum is looking out for the wifes weakness or the wifes dad is looking out for the husbands weakness (maybe lack of money) and is stepping in to fill that gap with or without the husbands knowledge or consent.
Its very common with men who only have daughters as children and because they have not brought up a male child in real life, they forget how territorial a man is and once their daughter WRONGLY starts telling them how she is suffering in her husbands house, the dad WRONGLY steps into their marital affairs to the chagrin of the fiercely independent husband. I've actually seen a marriage with 2 kids break up because of the overbearing influence of the wifes dad in the marriage and the fiercely independent husband not being ready to be colonised by a fellow man.
I actually blamed the woman in my example for going behind her husbands back to give her dad a running commentary of happenings in her marriage over a long period and the dad advising her on how to relate to her husband. the wifes dad in this case also had only 3 daughters and because he was used to bullying them including their mum, he WRONGLY thought he could bully a fellow man in his son in law with the result that he scattered his own daughters marriage with his meddlesome character.
My advise to couples is NEVER involve any inlaw or outlaw or parent or pastor into your marital matters. They may mean well to start with but they complicate matters on the long run.
|Family / Re: The Manipulated Man - A Book By Esther Vilar by Ilekokonit: 7:25pm On Dec 20|
It solves her problems temporarily but stores bigger problems for her in the future as anything built on a foundation of lies WILL not last.
Also, only a man that doesn't ask probing questions will be fooled. If you are someone with an inquisitive mind, a retentive memory, someone who doesn't sweep things under the carpet and who can also add 2 + 2 to give 4 then her lies will come crashing down in no time.
I'm one for laying your cards face up upfront to avoid future BIGGER disappointments which tend to hurt more than if you had told the truth in the first place.
|Family / Re: The Manipulated Man - A Book By Esther Vilar by Ilekokonit: 6:48pm On Dec 20|
Funny but true. Some women are just unbeleivable in the lies they tell.
|Family / Re: The Manipulated Man - A Book By Esther Vilar by Ilekokonit: 6:33pm On Dec 20|
And yet she had the effontery to pose as a victim in her full faced rebuttal video - thus compounding an already bad situation for her kids in the future.
What a pathetic joke some of these women are turning out to be right before the very eyes of their hapless kids. They clearly underestimate the smartness of todays kids. A lot of these women will have some serious questions asked of them in the very near future especially by their male children.
They are underestimating the character of a male child. If only they knew.

|Politics / Re: Ekiti Assembly Sits, Suspends Seven PDP Lawmakers by Ilekokonit: 5:22am On Dec 20|
"The hallowed chamber of the Ekiti State House of Assembly is the only venue for the sitting of the State House of Assembly and those meeting in hotels and paraga joints in Lagos and Osun States should know that they are just advertising their collective idiocy," Olugbemi said.
Paraga joints. See the mindset and caliber of people holding public office in Nigeria.
And kids are watching and learning from the unending tragicomedy with enough comic elements that is Nigerian politics and making up their young minds as they grow up.
At this rate, hope God will not become scared of Nigerian Politicians.
|Celebrities / Re: Photo: Chief Tony Anenih & His Young Wife by Ilekokonit: 4:30am On Dec 20|
Greed pure and simple.
And as there are not enough Rich men to go round, hence the millions of ageing women in their 40's still single and searching for "their knight in shining armour" because they were chasing ready made men in their 20's and 30's and playing hard to get to guys who were still finding their feet financially.
Now they shamelessly are becoming 4th wife to a Commissioner who will probably use them for juju soon.

|Education / Re: 70% Of Candidates Fail Nov/dec WASSCE by Ilekokonit: 3:29am On Dec 20|
A lot of the 70% that failed to get 5 credits probably relied on fake expo instead of dilligent study.
The competition to excel in academics in nigeria is dying down with every kid wanting to get rich quick by yahoo, "runs" or "trying" to go the way of olamide or tiwa savage forgetting that tiwa had a degree before we even knew her.
Now factor in the fact that some parents even pay for invigilators to allow their kids cheat in exams and you wonder why 70% of kids won't rely on fake expo to their detriment.
Also to buttress your point above, the internet has gradually reduced productivity in the world in general.

Very true. That's the result when a lot of people cheat to pass exams even in medical school. Shocking.

Reminds one of the single mother in Dublin that got her intimate pics posted online by her "boyfriend" about a week ago.
They both lead to the same place.

That's such a shame and I think the lowering of educational standards has a big part to play in that coupled with riff raff's now becoming undergraduates because the entry scores have been lowered and also the amount of exam malpractice that goes on in our exam halls.
|Family / Re: The Manipulated Man - A Book By Esther Vilar by Ilekokonit: 1:41am On Dec 20|
I think its "delayed womens liberation" a.k.a "independent womans syndrome".
A case of assertiveness gone wrong as evidenced by the horde of single black women in their late forties and even early fifties and the battalion of single mothers who have mismanaged their own marriages due to their cantankerous nature and wrongly copying every thing oyinbo literature and TV tells them.
Just log onto pof.com and you will see approx 500,000 people online at any time - a sizeable proportion being women.
|Family / Re: The Manipulated Man - A Book By Esther Vilar by Ilekokonit: 1:00am On Dec 20|
A clear case of inferiority complex.
If only they knew what these men say about their body parts to their mates who haven't been with a black woman before.
Seeing that you did not grow up in Africa, how did you manage to keep a strong black identity in a country that has perpetually knocked everything black overtly and covertly ?
|Family / Re: The Manipulated Man - A Book By Esther Vilar by Ilekokonit: 12:51am On Dec 20|
Its amazing how fast these women type when they want to send you multiple "per second" texts and want to brow beat you into accepting their point of view BY FORCE.
Most of these texts at the end of the day are childish to say the least.
