|Religion / Re: God Using Buhari To Punish Nigerians – Archbishop Chukwuma by Werehkpe: 10:20am On Nov 13|
I have stopped listening to Ibos! ALL they do is complain about Hausa's and northerners.
Thankfully, there are some that are not as myopic as the multitude.
I concluded that ANY Ibo that talks bad about Buhari is filled with HATE, BITTERNNESS and REVENGE - which was created during the civil war. The Ibos have have unforgiving spirits.
I thank God that most of the Ibos with this grudge and hatred for the Hausa are the old Ibos. The younger ones have a little bit more subtle impression. But Hatred is still in their genes and DNA. ALL Ibos need to be purges off this HATE, BITTERNESS, REVENGE AND GRUDGE

|Politics / Re: Which Ethnic Group Is The 4th Largest In Nigeria? by Werehkpe: 7:06pm On Oct 10|
The Ijaws are the 4th largest ethnic group in Nigeria. They extend all along the coast even as far as Okitipupa in Ondo State. They are over 10 million in population.
There are also about 367 ethnic groups in Nigeria. Try and read the book "Ethnic Pluralism, Ethnicity and Ethnic Conflicts in Nigeria"
You can thank me afterwards
|Politics / Re: Which Ethnic Group Is The 4th Largest In Nigeria? by Werehkpe: 6:51pm On Oct 10|
Ijaws are the 4th largest. They extend all along the coast from Bayelsa as far as Ondo.
There are over 360 ethnic groups although this figure is always disputed among sociologist and anthropologist.
U should try and read d book called "Ethnic Pluralism, Ethnicity and Ethnic Conflicts in Nigeria"
U can thank me afterwards

|Family / Re: How Much Is Ideal To Be Giving One's Wife As Monthly Stipend? by Werehkpe: 2:40am On Jun 20|
Is she IBO? cus na dem like money pass o.
If i am you, I wont give her upkeep money since she is already working and earning about 150k. She can use that for her upkeep and other things while you divert your funds to building a stronger home and furnishing your house. The truth is she is your wife she cannot leave your house or divorce you because you are not giving her upkeep money WHILE SHE IS STILL EARNING. The moment u accept to give her money while she is working you have laid a poor foundation and she will bleed you dry. As a man you have to take HARD and TOUGH decision.
Haba. whats wrong with these women sef. She is saving her money. and collecting from you and allowing only you to foot all the bills. God forbid but if anything goes wrong with your job, she will then have more money than you because she has been saving while you were speding on her and the house. Thats when she will start to show you shegey and talk to you like you are nothing. Bros shine you eye o
|Romance / Re: My Fiancee Confessed She's HIV+ After I Proposed To Her. Please, Help by Werehkpe: 2:30am On Jun 20|
PLEASE DO NOT MIS INFORM PEOPLE
HIV research has reached advanced stages and there drugs that now suppress the virus to an undetected level
OP PLEASE IGNORE ABOVE AND READ BELOW
1. U can go ahead with the relationship and have normal healthy children together.
2. U will have to make sure she adheres to her ART (Anti Retroviral Treatment) drugs. Ensure she takes them at the same and right time everyday
3. U can even have unprotected s3x with her without contacting HIV. BUT before you try this make sure she takes a test called VIRAL LOAD. If the result shows the level of her HIV is undetected then unprotected s3x is possible but not always advisable
4. Once in a while you may have to take pREP drugs. that Pre exposure drugs to ensure you do not contact the virus
Since you have been dating since 2014, I believe she is already on ART drugs and as such her viral load will be undetected. So you have absolutely nothing to worry about EXCEPT SHE STOPS TAKING HER DRUGS.
You can thank God I responded to this

Instead of them to be thinking of developing cars that run on solar which is what the world is working towards, they are working on old locomotive cars.

|Politics / Re: President Buhari Arrives Equitorial Guinea by Werehkpe: 11:19pm On Mar 14|

Honestly. To think than Jonathan said it will be renovated and it's still not till date, it leaves me thinking someone has "corrupted" NOT STOLEN (since corruption is not stealing) the money meant for the renovation.
EFCC is on the way to Ikeja ooooooo
|Politics / Angry Letter To Nigerian Youths That Can Make Them Rich by Werehkpe: 3:01am On Mar 06|
My dear Nigeria youths,
I am very angry and that is why I am addressing you. You are the source of my anger and I want to vent my spleen- maybe not at you directly- but at the arrogance of your ignorance. Of all nations of the world, you are to be most pitied. Do you still wonder what you have done?
You don’t have an Ivy League education but with the little below-standard education you got, all you could do with it is to write a petition against someone with the benefit of an Ivy League education. You can’t even run your personal economy as you’re almost always and perpetually broke yet you arrogate to yourself superior knowledge about the nation’s economy.
You sit in front of a computer and rant all day through social media but with every click, you make money- not for yourself- but for Mark Zuckerberg. With every megabyte of data you spend complaining and maligning, you make stupendous bucks for Etisalat, Glo and Airtel.
Over the next two years, the number of Nigerian millionaires will jump by 47% but most likely you will not be among because you are too busy whining and complaining. And yet about 60% of Nigeria’s 170m population are below 35 years. Oh, what a waste!
By the way, Mark Zuckerberg was 19 when he started facebook. Africa’s youngest billionaire, Ashish Thakkar, is 31. He escaped from the Rwandan genocide and relocated to Uganda where he started an IT business. Collin Thornton, who made his millions by fixing bad computers and setting up Dial-a-Nerd, is 35. Adam Horowitz, an 18-year-old entrepreneur, started 30 websites in 3 years before he became successful.
The only thing you have ever started is an online petition. Have you heard of Jason Njoku? He’s 33 and the founder of Iroko TV. He received $8m investment into his company just a few years ago. What he does? Sharing the same Nollywood films that you spend hours to watch online. He didn’t just hang around waiting for Buhari to make something happen or blaming Jonathan for not making anything happen.
Kamal Budhabhatti was deported from Kenya but while on the flight, he thought of the opportunities in Kenya. He found his way back after 6 months and today his company is valued at $30m. He’s 36. Have you heard of Chinedu Echeruo? Apple just paid $1b for his app. He’s a Nigerian like you and all he did was attempt to fix a problem.
But for you, the only thing you attempt to fix are your nails- and your hairdo! Chinedu moved to New York in 1995 and found it difficult to navigate the city with ease so he developed HopStop to fix the problem. Stop listing all the problems- we know them already but what are you doing about them?
Awolowo was 37, Akintola was 36, Ahmadu Bello was 36, Tafawa Balewa was 34, Okotie-Eboh was 27 and Enahoro was 27 at the time of independence of Nigeria. In 1966, the first coup was led by Kaduna Nzeogwu (29) and stopped by Murtala Mohammed (28), TY Danjuma (28), IBB (25), Sanni Abacha (23) and Shehu Yaradua (23). It brought in Yakubu Gowon as Head of State at 32 and Obasanjo at 29. You are in your 40s and you still sag your trousers.
Of course you know Linda Ikeji. You’ve spent hundreds of hours on her blog laughing and commenting while she smiles her way to the bank. She’s just built a house for her father in the village- just by you clicking on her gossip and sharing. Your day is not complete without a stop by at her blog. She was as broke as you are but she turned a hobby into a business. Are you that void of understanding?
You think the politicians have any regard for you? That is why I referred to the arrogance of your ignorance at the beginning of this diatribe. You have a false estimation of yourself. You have an over bloated ego. You are only as good as an election ticket- pure and simple.
You are only good to used and discarded like a used ballot paper. Who keeps a used ballot paper anyway? That is why they only remember you every four years.
You are like a menstrual pad that is only useful during the menstrual period. Are you hurt? Okay, let me help you. Have you heard of Prof Olusola Adeyeye before?
He is a Senator of the Federal Republic at the moment. But before he became a senator, he was popular on facebook. Even more popular than so many latter day facebookivists. I was one of his many followers. He put up posts after posts and pander to populist thinking. Then he was elected and one of the first things he did was to deactivate his facebook account. Yes, you read me right. Deactivate. How many times do you still see El-Rufai’s tweets? No longer regular? That is how it will dwindle until he disappears totally. I’m not limiting it to the aforementioned alone and this is not about any party. They are all the same.
Yet you falsely believe your future is in the hands of one politician. You will grow grey hair with that belief. And by the time you wise up, you’re on your way to the grave- not with a life expectancy of less than 60 years in this clime. Can you see you have wasted your time? And possibly your life? See, people have been complaining since independence. And they will still complain in 4 years. Will you be among them?
I agree with my friend who said Nigerian youth need mental detoxification. And maybe I should add that you need a brain transplant. Let me give you another example. I’ve watched you try to pull some people down when you don’t like their face- or their comments. You report them to facebook. And they get pulled down. Momentarily. Just momentarily.
Do you know why? Facebook knows those people draw traffic. Their posts get huge numbers of comments. And with every comment and click, someone is making money. Will you allow your best customers to leave? That is why though facebook pulled down Adeyinka Grandson’s page, he was given a facebook fan page in return. Yes, a fan page. You need to get a job and you need to get a life. There is life away from facebook or social media.
If you’re not making money from social media and you sleep on it, you’re merely existing- you’re not living. I have seen some of you take selfies and pose in all manner of ways as you paste your photos on social media. Are you a photographer or are you selling something that we don’t know? You’re unemployed because you’re unemployable. You don’t have skills. Sorry, the major skill you have is that of pointing out the problems and debating about them. That’s a no brainer! You can’t even diagnose the problems properly.
You think Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala is your problem? You are a self-inflicted problem. You are afflicted with yourself and by yourself. If you’re looking for the reason why you are the way you are- look no further than your mirror. Instead of occupying Nigeria, you should occupy your brain. The only witch chasing you from your village is you. It’s time to stop bewitching yourself.
Stop whining about lack of electricity or fuel. Do something about it. Every adversity has a seed of opportunity embedded in it. Create something. Invent something. Start something. Read up a book. Write a book. Take advantage of the present situation. Nigeria is a huge market. Nigeria is a virgin market. Waiting for you. Unleash yourself. Release your passion. Follow your potential. Invent your way to prosperity. Stop waiting for government- government only needs you when they need your taxes. Don’t depend on welfare. People who depend on welfare don’t fare well.
You think you lack capital? No, the problem is not lack of capital but lack of ideas. Just today, two men stepped into my wife’s office selling the new portraits of Buhari and Osinbajo. That’s someone grabbing an opportunity and seizing the moment. I have a friend who started out by offering after-school lessons to kids on her street- now she has a school.
I know a lady who was indigent and self-sponsored on campus. Each night, she soaked beans and made ‘moin-moin’ in the morning for sale on campus. I bought out of the moin moin as well as some other students and that was how she paid her way through University. Not prostitution. Have you heard of Ayodeji Megbope? She started her business with the last N1,000 she had on her by making moin moin. She is the CEO of No Leftovers.
I have shared the story of ‘Akara Ayo’ and invited him to talk to us before. He left his banking job to start a business frying Akara (bean cake) in Ibadan. And added some innovation to it.
Start a snail farm. You can start it with less than N100,000. I started it with nothing- I just picked up snails in my compound and raised them. In a couple of months, I had raised close to a thousand. You have a car and you are complaining you don’t have a job? Convert it for car hire. Take it to the airports and see how people will hire it for the day. Liase with good hotels and place it at their disposal. I met a young man in Calabar who charges N1,500 per hour for the use of his car. There is something in your hand that can give you the future you want. The best moment to start is now.
For God’s sake, just do something!
