while i honestly believe Buhari is the guy behind Boko Haram
he promised us Nigeria will be ungovernable and true to his words, it is, with over 14,000 dead individuals including women and children.

weird enough, I wont mind voting for Buhari if left with nobody else other than Buhari Vs GEJ

that fisherman is just the wrong man in the wrong place.
His case is like asking a village fisherman to diagnose and fix an airbus A380.
Even a roadside mechanic will be better off and thats how i see buhari

Boko haram is taking over towns, owning tanks and APCs, even showing it in videos
yet you want to place orders for helicopters which will be sent to the same region?
i mean, is he that daft?

with his mis-management of our military, it is just a matter of time before boko haram owns one and then Aso rock will be gone
who will do stop n search in the air?

Voting Buhari equates to islamization of Nigeria. Do not be deceived to think that Jonathan leaving power will end terrorism, it will only take a different dimension as you will no longer enjoy the freedom you see today...Nigeria may become reminiscent of ISIS Iraq state. Be careful what you wish!

Health / (must Read) What Happens To Your Body When You Fast by alpinedna: 5:38pm
We are familiar with the rules of the Ramadan fast, but what actually happens to our body when we abstain from food and drink? Answer: Our body gets busy…

Detoxification

Taking a complete break from food means that your body goes into self-cleansing mode. The energy normally used in digestion can get to work elsewhere: removing built up toxins, healing old wounds and building new cells.

Religion / Re: Bidam, Let's Discuss The Right And Wrong Applications Of The Law by vooks: 5:38pm
So if they are written in the hearts of believers, what is the need for dividing them? Ceremonial vs moral?
And how do I know whether what a believer is hearing in their heart is from the Spirit?
What if somebody hears that it is OK to keep slaves and beat them just not kill them (Ex 21:20)?

About my wife? Why do you care? That's below the belt. Don't go personal unless your brains start overheating and you have nothing to add.

Bidam:
Stoning represent the penalty for disobedience...Jesus paid the penalty. The curse of the law is related to the penalty.(Gal 3:13). As for wearing of fabrics, the laws are written in the heart of the believers( law of the spirit) who doesn't follow the letters of the law legalistically(Heb 10:16).

Music/Radio / Olamide's Story For The Gods: An Exposition And A Deconstruction by TheRealAdonye(m): 5:38pm
So there is a thread right now about Olamide's Story for the gods as a song that promotes rape. This reservations have been expressed before. Here is an article about how the song promotes rape. There is also another article. A rebuttal. Well, sorta. You be the Judge of that.


Olamide’s Story for the gods: An Exposition

Mo ti mu dongoyaro (dongoyaro, dongoyaro)
And monkey tail (monkey tail, monkey tail)
Aro bami gbe claro (claro claro)
I want to do sina today, sina today
She said she cannot wait o
She said its getting late o
She said she want to faint o
Ah, story for the gods
Now she saying mo r’ogo
O ti kan mi l’apa o
O ti kan mi l’eyin o
Story for the gods, the gods o
Olamide’s Story for the gods is a jam and a half!
It’s also a terribly, terribly inappropriate song.
The song was released a few months ago and like
everyone else, I got taken with the melodies and
rhythms. Top notch production. I’d hear it come up
on the radio while driving and turn the music up. It
would turn up on my music playlist and I’d leave
what I was doing and zone into it. My jam. Dude’s
lyrical dexterity, the way he bandied the words
together, his now-typical mesmerising english and
yoruba flow. Madness. The many lingo I couldn’t
relate to because they were either too street or too
deep for me. Those didn’t really matter.
Or did they?
One day, I zoned all the way in and felt the need to
know what dude was actually preaching to me in this
awesome song.
I was distraught.
It’s interesting that this song is still a hit on the
radio while Olamide’s labelmate and protegé, Lil
Kesh’s Shoki, which was released after Story for
the gods, is getting banned. What is the NBC
looking at? What is their criteria for the suitability or
otherwise of a song to be aired on radio or its
visuals be viewed on tv? They claim Shoki is a
street synonym for ‘quickie’, but very few people
knew this and it is not a subject matter of the song;
whereas…
Story for the gods glorifies narcotic/alcohol
influenced date rape.
Let me translate the chorus for you as literally as
possible:
I have drank dongoyaro (a local herbal drink)
And monkey tail (another local herbal drink,
sometimes used as an aphrodisiac)
Madman, give me the claro (a local slang for weed)
I want to do sina today, sina today (sina is street
lingo for adultery or fornication)
She said she cannot wait o
She said it’s getting late o
She said she wants to faint o
Ah, story for the gods
Now she’s saying “I’m in trouble”
“He has broken my arm o”
“He has broken my back o”
Story for the gods, the gods o
“Story for the gods” is street speak meaning “what
you’re saying is of no worth or value”. Other
iterations you may be more familiar with are “You’re
yarning dust” or “Story for tortoise” or “Bull poo.”
Now you know what you’ve been singing or
humming along to all this time. What does this make
you feel?
Dawning realisation? Anger? Shame?
Befuddlement? Denial? Disgust?
What are your thoughts? Perhaps I’m mistaken
about something or the other. Or perhaps I did not
do the translation justice in some way.

Politics / Re: Many Feared Dead In A Fresh Bomb Blast At Kano Central Mosque by IMMUNO1(m): 5:37pm
Bokoharam has different groups with different ideologies and purposes. I don't think this is done by the secular bokoharam. Meanwhile, any body that think that removing GEJ is the solution to bokoharam should think again. Northern elites should wake up to their responsibilities and put their house in order. Only an irresponsible mother blames her own daughter,s teacher over her daughter's bad attitudes.
