|Foreign Affairs / Re: Gambia Talks Fail As President Refuses To Step Down-bbc by Werehkpe: 8:03am On Jan 14|
Barrow should never have said he would arrest and imprison Jammeh.
That's were all d wahala started. D moment he said that Jammeh said he us no longer stepping down
As public figures we need to b careful with our utterances. Now Barrow and Jammeh will send the country through perhaps chaos and war. Two silly crazy old men
|Romance / Re: I Discovered Her Real Age 3 Months To Our Wedding What Do I Do? by Werehkpe: 7:43am On Jan 14|
First thing u MUST know is this
ANY union (marriage, friendship, political party or religious body) founded on lies is bound to fail or not work
So my advice is first explain to her how much u love her and that nothing will change it as long as she is truthful to u.
Next ask her to ask her if she has lied about anything to u and if she is hiding anything from u!
If her answer is No and she insists on d false age she initially told u, then i will further advice u forget the marriage plans and tell her why u are not going ahead with d marriage plans.
If she can lie about something as petty as her age, then she can lie about anything. She may be a divorcee or even have children and may be lying to u she doesn't.
|Culture / Emir Sanusi On The Problem With Nigeria And Nigerians by Werehkpe: 4:27pm On Jan 03|
I came across this online. Its an abstract from Sanusi Lamido (Emir of Kano). I cannot confirm its authenticity but its worth sharing
The former Central Bank Governor, and Emir of Kano His Royal Highness Muhammadu Sanusi Lamido, surprised guests present at the Muson Centre for the launching of the book of Sir Olaniwun Ajayi.
Please find below his unedited speech.
“Let me start by saying that I am Fulani (laughter). My grandfather was an Emir also fulani my uncle and guardian was also the immediate late Emir of kano Alhaji Ado Bayero and therefore I represent all that has been talked about this afternoon. Sir Ajayi has written a book. And like all Nigerians of his generation, he has written in the language of his generation.
“My grandfather was a Northerner, I am a Nigerian. The problem with this country is that in 2009, we speak in the language of 1953. Sir Olaniwun can be forgiven for the way he spoke, but I cannot forgive people of my generation speaking in that language.
“Let us go into this issue because there are so many myths that are being bandied around. Before colonialism, there was nothing like Northern Nigeria, Before the Sokoto Jihad, there was nothing like the Sokoto caliphate. The man from Kano regard himself as bakane. The man from Zaria was bazazzage. The man from Katsina was bakatsine. The kingdoms were at war with each other. They were Hausas, they were Muslims, they were killing each other.
“The Yoruba were Ijebu, Owo, Ijesha, Akoko, Egba. When did they become one? When did the North become one? You have the Sokoto Caliphate that brought every person from Adamawa to Sokoto and said it is one kingdom. They now said it was a Muslim North.
“The Colonialists came, put that together and said it is now called the Northern Nigeria. Do you know what happened? Our grand fathers were able to transform to being Northerners. We have not been able to transform to being Nigerians. The fault is ours.
Tell me, how many governors has South West produced after Awolowo that are role models of leadership? How many governors has the East produced like Nnamdi Azikiwe that can be role models of leadership? How Many governors in the Niger Delta are role models of leadership? Tell me. There is no evidence statistically that any part of this country has produced good leaders.
You talk about Babangida and the problems of our economy. Who were the people in charge of the economy during Babangida era? Olu Falae, Kalu Idika Kalu. What state are they from in the North?
“We started the banking reform; the first thing I heard was that in Urobo land, there will be a curse of the ancestors. I said they (ancestors) would not answer. They said why? I said how many factories did Ibru build in Urobo land? So, why will the ancestors of the Urobo people support her?
“We talk ethnicity when it pleases us. It is hypocrisy. You said elections were rigged in 1959, Obasanjo and Maurice Iwu rigged election in 2007. Was it a Southern thing? It was not. “The problem is: everywhere in this country, there is one Hausa, Ibo, Yoruba and Itshekiri man whose concern is how to get his hands on the pile and how much he can steal.
Whether it is in the military or in the civilian government, they sit down, they eat together. In fact, the constitution says there must be a minister from every state.
“So, anybody that is still preaching that the problem of Nigeria is Yoruba or Hausa or Fulani, he does not love Nigeria . The problem with Nigeria is that a group of people from each and every ethnic tribe is very selfish. The poverty that is found in Maiduguri is even worse than any poverty that you find in any part of the South.
The British came for 60 years and Sir Ajayi talked about few numbers of graduates in the North (two as at independence) . What he did not say was that there was a documented policy of the British when they came that the Northerner should not be educated. It was documented. It was British colonial policy. I have the document. I have published articles on it. That if you educate the Northerner you will produce progressive Muslim intellectuals of the type we have in Egypt and India. So, do not educate them. It was documented. And you say they love us (North) more than the south.
“I have spent the better part of my life to fight and Dr. (Reuben) Abati knows it. Yes, my grandfather was an Emir. Why was I in the pro-democracy movement fighting for June 12? Is (Moshood) Abiola from Kano ? Why am I a founding director of the Kudirat Initiative for Nigerian Development (KIND)?
“There are good Yoruba people, good Igbo people, good Fulani people, good Nigerians and there are bad people everywhere. That is the truth. “Stop talking about dividing Nigeria because we are not the most populous country
in the world. We have all the resources that make it easy to make one united great Nigeria . It is better if we are united than to divide it.
“Every time you talk about division, when you restructure, do you know what will happen? In Delta Area, the people in Warri will say Agbor, you don’t have oil. When was the Niger Delta constructed as a political entity? Ten years ago, the Itshekiris were fighting the Urobos. Isn’t that what was happening? Now they have become Niger Delta because they have found oil. After, it will be, if you do not have oil in your village then you cannot share our resources.
“There is no country in the world where resources are found in everybody’s hamlet. But people have leaders and they said if you have this geography and if we are one state, then we have a responsibility for making sure that the people who belong to this country have a good nature.
“So, why don’t you talk about; we don’t have infrastructure, we don’t have education, we don’t have health. We are still talking about Fulani. Is it the Fulani cattle rearer or is anybody saying there is no poverty among the Fulani?”, he said.
This is a great message to our generation.
In 1923, nine of the wealthiest people in the world met at Chicago's Edge Water Beach Hotel.
Their combined wealth, it is estimated, exceeded the wealth of the Government of the United States at that time. These men certainly knew how to make a living and accumulate wealth. Attending the meeting were the following men:
1. The president of the largest steel company,
2. The president of the largest utility company,
3. The president of the largest gas company,
4. The president of the New York Stock Exchange,
5. The president of the Bank of International Settlements,
6. The greatest wheat speculator,
7. The greatest bear on Wall Street,
8. The head of the World's greatest monopoly &
9. A member of President Harding's cabinet.
That's a pretty impressive line-up of people by anyone's yardstick.
Yet, 25 years later, where were those nine industrial giants?
Let’s examine what happened to them 25 years later.
1. The President of the then largest steel company (Bethlehem Steel Corp), Charles M Schwab, lived on borrowed capital for five years before he died bankrupt.
2. The President of the then largest gas company, Howard Hubson, went insane.
3. One of the greatest commodity traders (Wheat Speculator), Arthur Cutten, died insolvent.
4. The then President of the New York Stock Exchange, Richard Whitney, was sent to jail.
5. The member of the US President’s Cabinet (the member of President Harding's cabinet), Albert Fall, was pardoned from jail just to be able to go home and die in peace.
6. The greatest “bear” on Wall Street, Jesse Livermore committed suicide.
7. The President of the then world’s greatest monopoly, Ivar Krueger, committed suicide.
8. The President of the Bank of International Settlement, Leon Fraser, committed Suicide.
9. The president of the largest utility company, Samuel Insull, died penniless.
What they forgot was how to "make" life while they got busy making money!
Money in itself is not evil; it provides food for the hungry, medicine for the sick, clothes for the needy. Money is only a medium of exchange.
We need two kinds of education:
a) One that teaches us how to make a living,
b) One that teaches us how to live.
There are many of us who are so engrossed in our professional life that we neglect our family, health and social responsibilities.
If asked why we do this, we would reply that "We are doing it for our family".
Yet, our kids are sleeping when we leave home. They are sleeping when we come back home!! Twenty years later, we’ll turn back, and they’ll all be gone, to pursue their own dreams and their own lives.
Without water, a ship cannot move. The ship needs water, but if the water gets into the ship, the ship will face existential problems. What was once a means of living for the ship will now become a means of destruction.
Similarly we live in a time where earning is a necessity but let not the earning enter our hearts, for what was once a means of living will surely become a means of destruction for us as well.
So take a moment and ask yourself, "Has the water entered my ship?" I hope not!
Hope the above story will drive all of us in a better direction in life.
''Alone I can 'Say' but
together we can 'talk'.
'Alone I can 'Enjoy' but
together we can
'Alone I can 'Smile' but
together we can 'Laugh'.
That's the BEAUTY of
We are nothing without
each other .

|Religion / Re: God Using Buhari To Punish Nigerians – Archbishop Chukwuma by Werehkpe: 10:20am On Nov 13, 2016|
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, 2016|
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, 2016|
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, 2016|
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, 2016|
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
