Did you read the post you quoted?

I don't think he did, or maybe he was confused because all the sentences were questions.

Jarus:

Smh.

Is this a political appointment?

Does being a sister to the outgoing disqualify one from being the CJ is one is the next most senior Judge?

When the sisters enrolled for Law degree more than 40 years ago and rose through the ranks, was it APC that advised them to do?
Don't mind them, they believe everything is political.

take up a cutlass, preferably a gun, murder all your family members and be waiting for the federal government to ask why you did that.

you clueless northerners had decided to make yourself ungovernable, so be it!! let the blood sacrifice on the alter of power continue... keep on Imprisoning yourselves to create national tension in the name of abduction.....

What is exactly is Jonathan doing aside doing meetings and setting up committees? His government is synonymous with blood and disasters.

Politics / Re: Osun: Who Won The Election? by salaksmana(m): 11:14am On Aug 11
Considering what happened in 2011 and the people's view on the government of Jonathan, about 40% of osun electorate may decide to snub next year's general election.
Politics / Osun: Who Won The Election? by salaksmana(m): 11:05am On Aug 11
Congratulations Ogbeni, it was a clear victory, but lets wait and see how things play out in the next for years.
I do not want to believe that I would be the only one who is looking at the just concluded governorship election in Osun State differently. I am certain that dispassionate observers of the trend and dimensions of the election would be agitated by the same question, ‘Who won at Osun?’ In 2011, during the general elections, Rauf Aregbesola was barely a year on the saddle as the governor of Osun State. The Osun electorate had yet to test the man by having a taste of his style and method of leadership. The people’s expectations were, as could be said, relatively high. In anticipation of the good governance promised by Aregbesola’s party personified by the exploits of the two-time Commissioner of Work in Lagos State, they decided to give him the benefit of the doubt. The electorate in Osun voted massively for the then Action Congress of Nigeria represented by Aregbesola. The support was total. Suffice it to say that the then ACN got as much as 90 per cent of the total votes cast in an election which was not as thoroughly monitored and well-supervised as the Saturday election.
The situation that played out in Osun was not the same in other southwestern states. In Ekiti, where the events that brought about the emergence of Governor Kayode Fayemi was akin to that which gave birth to Aregbesola, the people were still in love with this gap-toothed and soft-spoken PhD holder in War Studies. Pensions were still regular; gratuities were still paid as and when due; there were not so many arrears of promotions and other subsidiary allowances like leave bonuses. However, the voters, just as was the case in the other parts of the South-West, based on the result of the presidential poll, expressed their desire to hook up with the government at the centre. The people voted for Goodluck Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party but the margin was not much. The result was, as can be said, 50/50. Needless to say, Jonathan won the presidential election despite losing about 98 per cent of the votes cast in Osun and in some other parts of the North.
Now, with Aregbesola having been fairly tested, the Osun electorate have made a statement. And the statement is clear. The candidate of the PDP, Iyiola Omisore, as the figures indicate, did not win. But, did the PDP completely lose? The total votes garnered by Omisore were more than what gave Ayo Fayose victory in the Ekiti election which was held in June. Omisore’s votes were nearly twice what brought Aregbesola to power as established by an Appeal Court judgment in November 2010.
Considering the fact that those who had a reason to vote against such a “performing governor” as Aregbesola in the election would still have enough reasons to snub him in 2015
, does this not spell doom for the opposition in the forthcoming general elections? Simply put, if the PDP retains its popularity in most or all the places it won in 2011 (like the South-East, South-South and North-Central) and gains 49.5 per cent sympathy as is the present case in Osun, what do we think would be the overall result? The APC must wake up to this reality.
Although Omisore may not have won the election, the PDP did not lose. Osun was almost entirely for the opposition until the masses tested what they could offer.

SenatorJames: My interests are:
-i want to spend less on wedding
-as a christian i believe in pastoral blessing
-i want it legalized (certificate)

I'm a fan of simple marriage, just that one have to consider the lady's interest. But do you think it's a bad idea to go to court (for certificate purpose) and invite a pastor to a traditional wedding (today's termed engagement) for blessing (or is it until someone put on white gown and suit inside the church, before the blessing can come)?
To be sincere IMO it isn't compulsory to stand before the altar before the blessing can come. People this days do meet there pastors to inform them that they wouldn't be coming to church in order to reduce expenses. It all depends on your belief, the bride and the pastor's disposition to the issue. Mind you court wedding doesn't make wedding less expensive, remember most of the money are spent at engagement and reception, it depends on how elaborate you decide to make it. This days people get married in church without inviting anybody, only the pastor, some elders of the church and immediate families will be aware. I've seen at least 5 of such church wedding, you can adopt that style in order to receive the blessing directly from the altar.

Amya:

Present to who exactly? And I hear local govts issue customary marriage certificates on request.
Customary marriage certificate? Then that makes it a court wedding sis.
Culture / Re: Is Traditional Marriage Complete Marriage? by salaksmana(m): 7:40am On Aug 10
Amya:

Yes the court of law recognizes a traditional marriage which has normally has no certification if there's evidence to prove the following
1. Parental consent to the couple

2. Presence of at least 2 witnesses to the marriage.

With just this 2 evidences above, any Nigerian court (not necessarily a customary court) recognizes a traditional marriage as a legal union.
So in case of anything, what will they present, there parent and two witnesses? The fact that traditional marriages are not backed by certificate issue under the Nigerian law still makes it incomplete.

Amya:

You say traditonal law is complete, yet in the same breath you say it's not binding under the law. And you even got ignorant likes for this.

Traditional marriages are complete and BINDING under the Nigerian law. No other type of marriage is needed after the traditional marriage
At traditional marriages they issue certificate? Do you even know what traditional marriage means? It is what most people refer to as "engagement". So after that, without going to court the law recognises them as couple?

Traditional marriage is complete because marriage only means when a man and woman agree to marry each other and the two families accepted, but it is not binding under the law that is why a court/white marriage is needed and also for the spiritual aspect of it, depending on your faith/religious belief.

Chai, APC and Hooliganism, imagine a serving senator and a professor uttering this. Unfortunately his wives and kids may not be around to vote not to talk of snapping pictures. Lets watch Aregbesola closely, and see if he'll snap his ballot paper, copy the serial number or wait till the votes are counted at his polling unit.

Politics / Re: Don’t Snap Ballot Papers, Jega Warns Voters by salaksmana(m): 9:34am On Aug 07
saintgwizard: It is criminal because it contravens the electoral act. It is also a way of inciting the people to become violent. Imagine a situation security operatives tries to stop people from doing so and some hoodlums decide to do the unthinkable.

My concern is that the families of those candidate may not even appear at the polling units not to talk of snapping ballot paper. Nigerians be wise, these men don't care if we all perish for them to actualize their personal ambitions.
salaksmana: Only Aregbe and his wife will vote, Kabiru is in Cuba, others are in other places, yet he is asking people to snap ballot paper and copy there serial number. I can bet with anybody that Aregbe won't do any of the two. Please be careful, security operatives generally are allergic to camera, be warned.
Only a fool will follow politicians' advise. You remember that Segun Oni was the only person that voted for APC at his polling unit, that means his wife & children were not around.
