Health / Re: “ewedu” Can Prevent And Cure Ebola – LUTH Consultant by koruji(m): 8:44pm On Sep 05
All these unfounded & exaggerated stuff are distracting us from taking concrete actions to address the immediate and longterm issues raised by the spread of Ebola in WA.

We have being eating Ewedu for aeons - may be it does boost the immune system LIKE MANY VEGETABLES EQUALLY DO, but it has not cured and will not cure any disease, talk less of a virulent/acute one like Ebola.

Enough already!!!


icnsystem: 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.

Just like GEJ to declare victory too soon. What vision is he talking about? The same still-born vision he had in 2011? Or another vision coming out of his sleep-walking rule since then? Everything is falling apart under his watch, but it is cheaper to attack phantom enemies "as in those who said our country will break apart" than to show evidence of performance.

Whatever Nigerians do in 2015 GEJ should be given a courteous thank you, and told to step aside.

Politics / Re: Osun Poll Today, What Is Happening In Your Area? by koruji(m): 10:51pm On Aug 09
It is indeed near 30% when you consider that only about 990,000 out of about 1.45 million actually collected their voter cards that were used for the election. Another total tally that I have seen is about 400,000 which will make it closer to 40-50%

obayaya:

This can't be the final results!!!!

Osogbo has 100k voters and the number of votes here is less than 15k (15%)

ife central has 95k voters and the number of votes here is less than 8k (7%)

this doesn't add up!!!! Average voters turnout in Nigeria is always between 30-40 %

And the media reported huge voter turn out!!!

lemme wait for INEC!!!

Politics / Re: Adolf Hitler Made A Mistake: He Should Have Attacked Africa First by koruji(m): 5:27am On Nov 16, 2013
Your brain has turned to mush.
If you so hate your race that much you know what to do.
There is a big river with hungry crocodiles near you.
Take yourself out of this misery - go join your hitler.

oily+Yoruba:
Going by what the dark continent had turned out to be after colonialism, I make bold to blame Adolf Hitler. I blame Hitler for Africa's problems because he could have put Africans out of their misery by simply wiping them out. If Adolph Hitler had attacked Africa first, the rest of Europe and would not had been perturbed because they all hated Africans anyway and Africans were still under colonialism.

If Hitler had attacked Africa and killed of everything on the continent, we would not have had all the conflicts that sprung up in Africa then and now. The reason why I say these things is because Africa is a huge mess and it need to be put to an end. Africa is a breeding ground for all manner of sadistic folks as seen in nigeria, Somlia, Congo DRC, Sierra Leon, Liberia etc. Most of these places had witnessed (and still experiencing) wars in which civilians are put through the most inhuman kind of treatment. Pregnant women's foetus cut open, civilians thrown in wells, Molesting of young girls, as displayed by Ahmed Yerima, beheadings, and all kind of evil you can think of.

So, somebody should tell me why we should have an Adolf Hitler to put out the dark continent of Africa?

Yeah, it is the president we are talking about...the president who is president only when we are talking about the spoils of office. At all other times he is the "excuse-giver-in-chief". Did you even read about the 8-year road construction that happened to be completed just in time for the funeral? This is the same thing he did when he was going to collect blessings at RCCG along Lagos-Ibadan road. Good thing Jerusalem was not in Nigeria, he would have fixed the road to that place too for his pilgrimage !!!

Goddex: What do you mean sef? The President should have boarded Arik or Chanchangi to Port Harcourt or what? Or other sympathisers who could afford private jets should not have used them? The scenario you described here is not new for those of us that worked in airports. It's the President you are talking about. Bear it, afterall, it's once in a long while.
Politics / Re: Bizzare: Aregbesola Introduces Ifa As A Subject In Osun State Schools by koruji(m): 5:06am On Oct 07, 2013
Obviously, you have little knowledge of that which you speak of.
Ifa corpus is the codification of ancient Yoruba sacred knowledge and practices.

I happen to have a text of the Ifa corpus collected by a European who travelled all over Yoruba land and translated it into English.
What strikes me in reading part of this book is the close similarity between specifications of animal sacrifices to tackle adverse human conditions and those in the Bible book of Leviticus (boring to read in both cases I must tell you).

The fact is that all the religions of the world have a common origin - they are all different stories that have changed with time and distance from their initial source of origin in the "land of the gods" in middle north-east Africa.

What we call religion today was actually human's first rudimentary attempt at science - an attempt to study and provide explanations for the mysterious. In those days what you call Ifa worshipers or devotees today would be the ancient professors of that science i.e. Ifa in the Yoruba sphere of influence.

I would not object to introducing this as a subject in schools - so long as it is voluntary.
We already have our schools teaching Bible and Quaran knowledge - and I hope these are voluntary as well.

In addition, Ifa is common to all those gods you mentioned - as it codifies all sacred knowledge.

....hehehe I am probably wasting my time here, as your post (quoting as it is from another forum post with no link to any other public source) probably has a more sinister motive as usual.



Sincere 9gerian: Osun State governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, said last week that his administration plans to introduce the study of Ifa as one of the subjects in the state’s secondary school. The schools’ computer tablet already have application for Ifa studies.

Ifa is a combination of traditional belief and worship of the gods that remain obvious in the names of the yoruba race. There are other gods that may need studying, Ifa is just one of many traditional ways in yoruba land.

The reason for this choice is not clear but the Governor has spoken, Nigerians really don't care as they have more socio-economic headaches to worry about, but parents may want to take their kids away from public schools on the account of being thought the Ifa ways.

There is a need to increase and sustain the teaching of our culture and values in schools, however, the introduction of the study of Ifa may not be apt for attaining this objective.

Maybe the worshipers of Ogun, Obatala, Sango worshipers etc also clamour for the introduction of their own studies? Should traditional studies be introduced in schools? Please share your thoughts on this as a student!

Car Talk / Re: My Road Trip From Lagos To Ibadan. Pictures! by koruji(m): 3:23am On Sep 24, 2013
@OP Great pictures. Wished I took pictures like these about three weeks ago when I passed through that terrible road.
Your pictures provide good pictorial evidence of my point in another thread, where GEJ's people were reconstructing the Lagos-Ibadan road online by subterfuge. What I saw on that road were about 10-15 RCC workers shuffling feet on less than 1 km of their section of the road - no real work was going on, they were moving around like they really were there to show up.

That "GEJ bootlicker" said I was praying for the road not to be finished - when asked them to to wait for it to be finished before showing us pictures of less than a kilometer of some movement on the existing road, instead of mixing RCC signs with JB trucks. That is not how you construct a 5-lane each way road. The fact is there is nothing to write home about being done on that road, as far as construction or even rehabilitation is concerned. That is the unmitigated truth!!!

Politics / Re: Lagos-ibadan Expressway: President Jonathan Lies Again by koruji(m): 4:50am On Sep 17, 2013
When I passed through that terrible road about two weeks ago there were about 5-10 RCC workers - shuffling around. It occurred to me that GEJ was getting ready for another campaign of subterfuge. This was the same man that had Julius Berger come shuffle feet on that road almost a year ago - but proclaimed it like a reconstruction contract.

Well, to all the GEJ praise-singers, those pictures are worth exactly nothing. The project is supposed to be 5-lanes on each side. There is nothing in the pictures that show anything close, and the total length of the section where they are "shuffling feet" is no more than 1/2 a kilometer. There is nothing to indicate the kind of monumental work implied by the proclaimed re-design of this road is about to take place.

Incidentally, on that very day I had just passed through the ongoing work on Aregbesola's LOOP between Osogbo and the Ibadan-Ife road, and you are left in no doubt about the plan and the ongoing work. Compared to the proclaimed redesign of the Lagos-Ibadan road this loop is a much smaller project, yet the amount of equipment and men all along that road was impressive.

It seems RCC is there, for some reason, to provide a photo-op for exactly this type of NL post. Or may be Mr. GEJ is on his way back to the Lagos-Ibadan road praying ground!!! JB probably refused to do the dirty work for them this time, so it is RCC's turn to play along!!!

Whichever is the case, this post is a waste of time. It needs to wait until the road is about to be commissioned.

Stop talking with your mouth so full of GEJ's breastmilk.
Even if Kogi is of "average intelligence" - that would still be a thousand times greater than your parent's, and infinitely greater than the near zero intelligence that calls your upstairs home.

Ikengawo: Wole Soyinka is not an intellectual for one. Someone needs to just admit this and move on. He doesn't show the traits of someone with an above average intelligence. He's just against any and everything moving and like a person of average intelligence will delve into petty insult matches. He has no ideas, no solutions, and no vision like people of high intelligence, he just attacks without resolve. In a functioning country such a person would be the 'average' citizen, but in a land where the low IQ is the loudest, Soyinka is seen as some type of intellectual or sage. People that are ready to say he's an intellectual sage can not name any of his works, have seldom read any of them, and when you have, as I have, you have a difficult time admitting that it was average par work because you're made to believe this guy is a 'brain' in the nation.

Typical to tribal fashion though, the 'corruption' and 'mismanagement' he's 'against' wasn't a big deal when he worked for the most openly corrupt, middle class eliminating opposition killing election botching dictator nigeria has ever had, Babangida.

Typical of a man without vision he has been caught being for and against the exact same things at the exact same time not because of it's moral or intellectalcandor but because of a fixation on what average to low intelligence people fix on: person. When GEJ and Okonjo Iweala was ready to take away the fuel subsidy, Soyinka was stiffly against it. When Ribadu wrote a report announcing what Okonjo Iweala had announced almost a year before him; that there's corruption in the subsidy sector, Soyinka was asking for heads to roll and wondering why the evil GEJ wasn't doing anything about it.

So what is the end result of years of passionate opposition to GEJ? Against his corruption, and mismanagement, what happens when Soyinka has a chance to get off the streets and meet GEJ face to face?

seighapaul: why are Nigerians so biased when it comes to things like this. Almost all the comments here are obviously borne out of sentiments. Most people have said all sorts of nonsense against the judiciary since Al-Mustapha's release because they are opposed to the court's verdict to release him. I'm not surprised. Meanwhile they have applauded the same judiciary moments ago because of appeal courts verdict on Rev. King. When will you guys learn to look at the facts and not your feelings.

Al-Mustapha is NOT a Killer but a fine Military officer who was not afraid to carry out orders as is the norm in the military profession. He quite admitted those he committed but did not mince words to say he acted on orders. The court saw reasons to acquit him on those based on the obey before complain practice in the army but he had repeatedly told everyone that he was not involved in Kudirat's issue, a fact the court looked through and thought it wise to acquit him. Having been discharged and acquitted, he is not an ex convict, for those of you who does not understand what that means.

Most of the evils that have been perpetrated on planet earth were actually the way of life of some people - that did not make them permissible or something that should be practiced in the 21st century.
