Politics / Implications Of Dino Melaye's Failed Recall by emmatuxz(m): 12:40pm On Apr 30, 2018
The failed recall of Senator Dino Melaye on Saturday provides an opportunity for lessons to be drawn from the implementation of the recall constitutional provisions. Out of 189,870 signatories to the petition for Melaye’s recall, only 18,742 were verified by the Independent National Electoral Commission. This is a paltry 5.34 per cent of the total number of registered voters in the senatorial district and therefore did not satisfy the requirement of the law demanding a simple majority of the signatures of voters registered to vote in the constituency.
The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 in Section 69 provides for the recall of senators and members of the House of Representatives. It requires that a petition signed by more than one half of the persons registered to vote in the member’s constituency alleging that they have lost confidence in that member be presented to the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission. Thereafter, the petition is subjected to a referendum conducted by INEC and if it is approved by a simple majority of voters registered in that member’s constituency, the member stands recalled. In between the presentation of the petition and referendum, a verification of the signatures of the petitioners is conducted by INEC. For the verification to succeed, 50 per cent plus one of the registered voters in the constituency need to be verified.
The provision for recall of legislators is based on the sovereignty of the people affirmed in Section 14 (2) (a) of the Constitution to wit; that sovereignty belongs to the people of Nigeria from whom government through the constitution derives all its powers and authority. It is about the right of the people to change their mind on the mandate they gave to a representative, midway into a legislative term. It is democratic and tallies with the right of the people to choose their representatives. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. In the secular world, it is the equivalent of the holy book in the great religions. Every other law derives its validity through compliance with the foundational principles and philosophy of the constitution and any law in conflict or inconsistent with it is void to the extent of its inconsistency. Provisions of such a foundational law are not to be invoked for mere atavism or just to prove an empty political point to a political opponent.
Media reports monitored last Saturday indicated that there was a very low turnout and the constituents were not in any mood to recall their senator. They were also unaware of the sins of Melaye that would have led to the commencement of the recall process. They constituents simply stayed away and went about their normal routine business. Again, the media reported “fictitious and forged signatures and names of dead persons affixed to the recall petition by its promoters”. The constitution does not anticipate or provide that signatures would be forged or the names of dead persons be inserted in a petition to recall a serving senator. It is imperative to state that forgery is a criminal offence for which the offenders should face stiff penalties and sanction. It is the expectation that the police and INEC should proceed with the same rigour and vigour with which they moved to recall the senator and go after the culprits and bring them to book.
The constitution anticipates a good faith process based on honesty of purpose. For constituents to lose confidence in a legislator, there must have been some misdeeds or offences committed by the legislator. Maybe, they mismanaged constituency project money and converted the same to their personal use. Or they have committed a grievous offence known to the law. Alternatively, they sleep in the chambers of the Senate and fail to bring up issues of importance to the constituency in the Senate. Also, the member has been docile without sponsoring appropriate bills and motions. None of these could be attributed to Dino Melaye in his representation of his people. I do not want to believe that people can make up their mind to recall a legislator for the fun of it to justify the number of petitioners who started the process. Alternatively, could it be argued that about 95 per cent of the persons who signed up for Melaye’s recall changed their mind? That would be magical and so drastic and would not have been the case in the logical and natural sequence of human action. It is a very remote probability.
The fact that those who perpetrated the forgery made the federal treasury to spend hundreds of millions of naira which should have otherwise been used to solve life and death challenges facing the nation makes the case for their prosecution more compelling. Our hospitals and schools are run down and need so much in resources to rehabilitate and our government states that the money is not available. Yet, some little minds on an ego trip decided to make Nigeria go through this punishing fiscal schedule. Yes, money must have been spent to defend the litigation from the Federal High Court to the Court of Appeal, pay the personnel that went to the field, and the logistics for the exercise, etc.
There must be a limit to the misuse of executive and state power to prove a point which has nothing to do with the interest of the people. Recalling a senator is not a tea party.
Due to the way the Melaye recall had gone initially, it encouraged some level of rascality leading to some persons in Senator Ennyinna Abaribe’s constituency in Abia to allegedly start the noise of his recall process. According to media reports, part of his sin is that he “insults” President Muhammadu Buhari in his contributions in the Senate. This is so trivial and if we do not learn lessons, it could start the process of a journey to nowhere that would waste public funds.
Let it be known that this discourse is not against the provisions of the constitution or the idea of recalling legislators. But the message is that recalls should be based on empirical evidence, good reasons and honesty of purpose. It should not be an opportunity to settle political scores or to flex muscles to show an opponent that you can lord it over them.
Let this serve as a deterrent to those who want to rig the system through forgery, so as to ensure that in future, no one will try to game the system in future.

Celebrities / Dr Sid Harassed By SARS Officials Who Mistake Him For Yahoo Boy by emmatuxz(m): 1:58pm On Apr 19, 2018
Dr. Sid might not be supremely active in the entertainment scene but he is still one of the more recognizable faces of Nigerian music, so you can imagine how surprising it was when he was reportedly stopped by officials of SARS and harassed.
According to eyewitness reports, the singer was driving in Lekki when he was stopped by SARS officers who asked him to park and then proceeded to search his phone.
He was presumed to be a Yahoo boy and when his phone produced no evidence, they decided to seize it. The basis for their suspicion? He was on dreads.
It took the intervention of fellow label mate, Reekado Banks and comedian Basketmouth who happened to be driving by at the time before he was released by the law enforcement agents.
According to Ogunleye Olaide, an eyewitness, he said the following;
In *Lasisi Elena’s voice * something just happened now . Sars operatives stopped a random vehicle on freedom way ,Lekki Phase 1,thinking the driver was a yahoo boy, after routine check , they found nothing implicating , and resorted to seizing the phone of the driver.
Little did they they know , that this person is Dr Sid , I mean Dr Sid of Mavin Dynasty . They insulted and attempted to assault him physically . Thanks to @ReekadoBanks and K-Solo , who were there …
Before @basket_mouth who was driving by saw them and stopped to know what was wrong . Then ,it dawned on the SARS operatives that these guys were not their “yahoo boy customer ” Ise baje
“That’s how Dr Sid vex too and started to call. Just imagine that it was an “ordinary ” civilian that was harassed today, baba for don dey cell now.”
He was insulted and things might have gotten physical if not for the intervention of his fellow celebrities.
Dr. Sid is yet to say anything about the incident.

Politics / How One Hack Changed APC Overnight by emmatuxz(m): 4:03pm On Apr 17, 2018
Whether the All Progressive Congress (APC) denied the controversial @APCNigeria twitter account or not, one thing is certain, they used it at some point, got it verified by Twitter and somehow lose control of the account to Philip Obin, the man who created and managed the account for the party.
But the controversy has somehow open a new frontier for the party. A phase that will be welcomed by most social media influencers, digital strategists who has been calling and waiting for the party to define a digital strategy for the party.
When the news of the hack first broke out and was eventually confirmed by Philip via tweet, I was of the opinion that APC as a party should not only doll out millions of naira monthly to a faceless Buhari Media centre but should be bold enough to create new social media handles, got them verified and work on establishing a good social media frontier that will not just promote their program and propaganda but will also connect them with the digital realities of our World.
While they have listed the following as their new social media handles;
Twitter: https://twitter.com/OfficialAPCNg
Facebook: https://web.facebook.com/officialapcng/
Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/officialapcng/
YouTube: Official APC Nigeria
It is very important to point out that this is commendable but it is only the beginning.
I am worried about our tomorrow, while, we at least pray and expect that the APC will use their new handles to promote social goods, i feel that Philip Obin and the @APCnigeria issue was not well handled by the leadership of the party.
So the problem of APC is actually the APC. I pray the APC and indeed other corporate organization will learn one lesson or two from the controversy, creativity must be rewarded and we should note that loyalty is not a person but a process, it can change depending on so many factors.
Hacking is very possible, but these five ways will help you to overcome it.
1. Beware of public WiFi, It’s so dangerous.
2. Turn off your WiFi when you are not using it
3. Change your passwords frequently
4. Always check permissions on apps before installing and make sure they aren’t accessing unnecessary information. if you don’t trust an app, don’t install it.
5. After using a public WiFi, make sure you click forget the network after you finish using it.

Celebrities / #bbnaija: Cee-c Breaks Down In Tears After Being ‘left Alone’ by emmatuxz(m): 7:43am On Apr 17, 2018
As Big Brother Naija 2018 nears its conclusion, Cee-C, the most controversial contestant on the show this season, is starting to feel an emotional vacuum.
After the eviction of Khloe, Anto and Lolu on Sunday, there are five housemates left on the show; Miracle, Nina, Cee-C, Tobi and Alex.
Miracle and Nina are an item while Tobi and Alex are close friends.
Together, the four of them are chatting buddies, leaving Cee-C alone, without a friend, companion or confidante for the home stretch of the show.
The reality show star whose real name is Cynthia Nwadiora is starting to feel the effect of being ‘left alone’.
On Monday, while the other housemates were cozying up in pairs, she was on her own — doing laundry and fighting back tears.
For a few seconds, Cee-C pressed a cloth to her face to muffle her tears.
Earlier, she had prayed for strength to get through the “tough week”.
She had said: “It’s going to be a very tough week. Staying strong, trying to complete what I started. I need all the strength that I can get for this week. See who’s playing a victim. What a life?
Meanwhile, Nina has been chosen as the final head of the house. The selection was done through a vote by the housemates.
Nina was chosen by Tobi and Alex, while Miracle and Nina picked Cee-C.
However, Tobi and Alex objected Cee-C’s selection, saying she was impatient and troublesome.
The five remaining housemates are on course to win the N45m grand prize on Sunday.

Politics / Second Niger Bridge: Doyin Okupe Makes 15 Shocking Revelations by emmatuxz(m): 9:54am On Apr 14, 2018
Doyin Okupe, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has made what he called 15 revelations about the Second Niger Bridge.

In a message he entitled “GEJ, Buhari & The People,” Okupe wrote:

[1] The Bridge is NOT Being Constructed by the FGN.

[2] It’s a PPP Project which the FGN contributes a tiny fraction.

[3] The 2nd Niger Bridge Will Cost about N117 billion.

[4] Started in 2013 and should have been completed in 2017, but worked stopped for 31 months. Completion date Not certain now.

[5] FGN share of the Cost is N30billion. Jonathan through the Sure-P paid N21.2billion (71%) including N7billion for the completion of preparatory work (Phase 1).

[6] 38% of the work has been done as at Jan 2015.

[7] The N140b Oshiomhole said was wasted on Admin cost on the bridge was a lie, as admin cost will not be higher the to cost of the whole project.

[8] Buhari’s Govt Paid N2billion NOT $2billion as Osinbajo said during the Anambra state election. They will be paying another N3.05 when 2018 budget is approved.

[9] Work has restarted in earnest at the site and about 5%-7% has been completed bring the total completed work to about 43% to 45% according to an engineer I spoke to.

[10] All the pictures flying all over the internet are pictures of work-in-progress made during the 1st quarter of 2015.

[11] In summary Jonathan Govt have paid 71% of FGN share of the cost, While Buhari’s govt has paid 6.1%.

[12] Julius Berger, the Major Contractor and Construction company will put Toll Gate on Completion of the Bridge to cover their cost.

[13] The Construction Company is Funding the Project and the People using the Bridge will bear the cost via Toll Charges.

[14] The real People building the Bride are Nigerians that will use the Bridge, as they will REPAY the cost to Julius Berger.

[15] For those celebrating Politicians and sharing old or fake pictures of 2nd Niger Bridge, the #Facts are Not on your side.

Politics / Re: Fulani Herdsmen Attacks: Senator Shehu Sani Attacks Buhari by emmatuxz(m): 7:01pm On Mar 15, 2018
APC senator has taken a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari for failing to protect Dapchi schoolgirls from terrorists’ abduction after criticizing ex-President Goodluck Jonathan over Chibok schoolgirls kidnapping.
Sani, who represents Kaduna Central senatorial district, said this after President Buhari bragged about responding better than Jonathan in the schoolgirls’ abductions by Boko Haram insurgents.

Buhari had said, “The federal government’s response to the unfortunate abduction of the schoolgirls is a clear departure from the insensitivity of the past administration which looked the other way while the Chibok girls were taken away in 2014 and held in captivity for over three years,” he said.
“Due to our commitment, over 100 Chibok girls have been rescued and reunited with their families, sent back to school and empowered with requisite skills,” the president said during a townhall meeting in Damaturu, Yobe state, on Wednesday.
Reacting via his official twitter handle on Thursday, however, Senator Sani described President Buhari as a “superman” who failed to meet the expectations of the people after criticizing the past administration when the insurgents first kidnapped the Chibok girls from their hostels.
“The SpiderMan who couldn’t protect Chibok is blasted by the SuperMan who couldn’t protect Dapchi from alien invasion,” tweeted the lawmaker.

Romance / Microcheating, What Is It And Are You Guilty? by emmatuxz(m): 12:18pm On Mar 13, 2018
Microcheating is the term for small things you do that could have whispers of infidelity, without even being physically unfaithful but just as dangerous.

Signs of micro-cheating  (Bustle)
Microcheating is the term for small things you do that could have whispers of infidelity, without even being physically unfaithful, and can take you into territories you might regret. Think of it as the little sister to emotional cheating. We explain exactly what micro cheating is and whether or not you are guilty.
“Microcheating happens when you create small opportunities for affectionate behaviours that fall outside your relationship,” explains sex and relationship therapist Tammy Nelson, PhD, author of The New Monogamy: ­Redefining Your Relationship After Infidelity. You may be doing it when your partner is not around or even in front of them and with or without their knowledge. But given that such a habit can build up to something more, it can spell trouble.

What are common signs of micro-cheating?
Although physical cheating is quite easy to define, microcheating tends to be more of a grey area. However, common examples of this type of infidelity can include:

Lying about your relationship status
Obsessively checking another person's social media feed
Texting or contacting someone without your partner's knowledge . . . and trying to mask the evidence
Listing a so-called "friend" under a code name in your phone
Engaging with a past lover, whether it be in person or on social media
Sharing secrets with someone you're attracted to outside your relationship

Microcheating whilst in a relationship.  (The Independent)
How to be sure that you're microcheating
If you're not sure whether your own behaviour counts as micro-cheating, certified coach Jillian Turecki suggests asking yourself this: Would you be acting the same way if your partner was sitting right next to you? "Anything that’s done on the sly or is not congruent with who you are in front of your person is a problem," explains Turecki.

No matter how small the act of microcheating feels, Turecki suggests thinking about what you value. "Instead of thinking, 'I can’t micro cheat,' it’s more useful to think of what you value. If you value integrity, respect, and loyalty, then commit to acting in accordance with that. I believe that is an important standard everyone must have for themselves, coupled or not. It leads to greater happiness as well. We like acting in alignment with what we value. It feels good."

Does this mean the end?
But should this behaviour really be a deal-breaker in a relationship? If it makes you feel uncomfortable or insecure in your relationship, then perhaps.

However, it's important to talk to your partner about the issue in a diplomatic and rational way, taking are to explain the observations you have made, and how they have affected you. 

If you think "there may be more to the story'' it may be wise to talk to your partner about the situation and ask calmly "Is there something I need to know about your feelings for this person?"

Another effective approach would be to ask: "How would you feel if I did something like this?". Sometimes people do not understand the magnitude of their actions until they are the ones on the receiving end of such behaviour. A little empathy can go a long way.

Microcheating is largely forgivable but the danger is that it can lead to cheating in the more traditional sense. Sometimes, little actions have subconscious effects on us and before we know it, a small fancy can spell big trouble for your relationship. Always bear in mind what you have and remind yourself about why it's not worth it to put what you and your partner have built at risk.

Politics / Fulani Herdsmen Attacks: Senator Shehu Sani Attacks Buhari by emmatuxz(m): 12:49pm On Jan 08, 2018
The Senator representing Kaduna Central in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani, has pointed out that every drop of blood of Nigerians following herdsmen continued attacks, erodes the credibility and integrity of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Sani noted that the mass murder in Southern Kaduna, Taraba, Benue, Numan and other affected places are “unpardonable and despicable crime.”
He also noted that enough blood had been spilled by the blood thirsty herdsmen.
He said this in a statement he made available to newsmen in Abuja yesterday.
According to the lawmaker, “The mass murder in southern Kaduna, Taraba, Benue, Numan and other affected places are unpardonable and despicable.
“These killings and bloodletting threatens the peace, stability and unity of our country.
“Helmsmen must confront Herdsmen. One minute silence and repeated words of condolences and sympathy cannot address the problem or end the bloodshed.
“Every attack erodes the credibility and integrity of the present administration and every drop of blood stains the conscience of all men in the position of power.
“Enough blood has been spilled by herdsmen to stain the Rivers of Niger and Benue.
“Mr President, there are vultures flying over the heads, the villages and communities of our people. No policy or programme or agenda of government is more important than human lives.
“No policy or programme or agenda of the government is more important than human lives. These five Ps must stop; protecting, pampering, paying, politicising and prevaricating on the herdsmen must stop.”

Romance / 12 Ways Men Show That They Are Truly In Love With A Woman by emmatuxz(m): 4:14pm On Jan 02, 2018
In some conversations that I have with women regarding a man they are just starting to date, or even one they have been with for awhile, I often hear how he is not as verbal as they would like when it comes to showing their affection. Many things I suggest in my article suggest open and free communication between men and women in terms of showing how they value each other, but the truth is, it takes a certain kind of man to frequently put his feelings into words for you.
It is not better or worse, it does not mean more or mean less, it just shows that men all express their affection in their own ways (as do women, of course).
So, even if your guy isn’t telling you how he feels, here are some ways he might show you.
1. He brings you around his friends.
Or family. Or whoever is closest to him. When a man starts to make you part of the important things in his life, it is a good sign that he is serious about you. He wants others to experience the happiness that you bring to his life (and maybe show you off a little bit — in a good way because he is proud to be with you).
2. He stays close to you physically.
It could be keeping his arm around you, hugging you randomly, or cuddling up on the couch — a man who truly cares and enjoys your company will always want to be in close proximity to you. Physical contact, even when ‘innocent,’ sends non-verbal messages that are worth paying attention to.
3. He really listens to you.
One of the major things that men often get accused of is being terrible listeners. Whether we don’t remember that it was your friend’s birthday this weekend, or which scented candle was your favorite one at the store — the small details matter most. A man who really cares for you will listen intently and do his best to absorb all of the details that he can. It is his way of showing you that he values you and what you have to say.
4. He is all smiles after you kiss.
You know, that feeling…
5. He stays in touch with you just because.
Two people who genuinely enjoy each other’s company don’t need a reason to talk to each other. If he texts or calls you just to say hello, to see how your day is going, or to say good morning and goodnight, it is a clear sign that he thinks about you often and wants you to know it.
6. He doesn’t care what you do, as long as you’re together.
Oh, you have to go grocery shopping today or go out and get things for your party this weekend? Count him in. For the man who wants to spend as much time with you as he can, it’s not just going to be on date night or when you are intimate together. A meaningful relationship is just as much about sharing in everyday things together, as it is about the exciting things.
7. He mirrors your behavior and body language.
While some of us recognize this as an effective form of communication as well as a method to make someone more comfortable around us, many people will just become so in-tune with the person they are with that they subconsciously start duplicating gestures, positions, or postures. If you find him touching your arm after you touch his, uncrossing his legs after you uncross yours, or leaning in to you during conversation after you lean in to him — it shows he is paying close attention to you, whether he realizes it or not.
8. He puts thought into the gifts he gives you.
While, obviously, special occasions are not the only time that a man (or woman) should do something special for you, they are more traditional in the sense that it is an opportunity to slow our lives down and show somebody how much we appreciate them. Whether it is a gift you have wanted or an experience you have desired to partake in — a man who really cares about you will not just pick up a stuffed animal and some flowers at the store. He will do something special that is clearly specifically for you.
9. He compromises.
No great relationship was ever built on the foundation of “what’s in it for me?” A man who is just playing the field will have no reason to sacrifice his own self-interest for somebody… unless he feels something deeper for them. When we begin to develop love for someone, we want to see them happy, even if that means putting our own self-interests aside for the sake of theirs. Her happiness becomes our happiness.
This is not to say he will become a doormat — there is a big difference between compromise and sacrifice. It goes both ways.
10. He will go pick up your dry-cleaning.
Or whatever it is that you don’t have time to do yourself. He will put in the effort to help you out in order to make your life easier, just because. A man who is not serious about you will not be around often enough, nor willing enough, to do these things.
11. He asks for your advice.
If a man asks you for your advice on a decision he is trying to make or a situation that he is in, it means he values your opinion enough to take you seriously and actually use it as a guiding light in his own life. If a man values your thoughts, it means he values you.
12. He will always make you feel safe.
Men are naturally protective. Millions of years of biological evolution has brought us to the point where we naturally want to protect those we love, whether they need it or not. It could mean protecting you from getting hurt emotionally or physically, but protecting nonetheless.
A man who loves and cares for you will make you feel safe. He will never make you question whether or not he will be there for you in a time of need. He will stand by your side when he must, in front of you when he must, and behind you when he must. He will be your teammate through life.
A man who loves you will make you feel it in his own ways. When he really cares, you will know it — if he doesn’t, you will be wondering all the time if he does.

Romance / 8 Ways Of Making Your Older Crush Fall For You by emmatuxz(m): 1:09pm On Dec 24, 2017
At a younger age, chances are you’d have had a crush on an older woman and there are some good reasons why this match could be a good one.
Between the ages of 18 and 21, sexual and physiological factors are at its peak for men and same goes for women when they are in their mid to late thirties which may be one of the reasons for the younger man, older woman match.
However, women that are free and willing to go into a relationship with a younger man are fewer than those who wouldn’t. The question now is how can you compete against the vast number of women not willing to go into a relationship with a younger man?
Here are a few tips that can help you seduce and secure the attention of the older woman you’ve been eyeing.
Stick Your Head Out
The simple fact that you’re young is a source of attraction for older women. Older people love the youthfulness and freshness of the younger ones.
Irrespective of your age, women have certain traits they long to see in their male companions. Being confident and having a set of opinions is one thing older women are on the lookout for.
Being indecisive is something she doesn’t want to see. Be assertive and show her that inspite of your youthful age, you have a mind of your own.
Know When To Keep Shut
This is not to say you shouldn’t voice your opinions as she would enjoy that, but the essence of this point is to remind you to allow free flowing discussions.
A lot of young men tend to want to dominate conversations but acting in such manner would most likely make her feel unimpressed as she’s used to being independent and opinionated.
The best way for you to go about this is to avoid saying anything on conversation subjects you know little about. Listen more and you’d have her liking you.
Avoid The Age Talk
It’s obvious that there’s an age gap between you and her but you shouldn’t bring it to the fore in discussions.
Avoid making references to anything that will make her remember she’s older as that will be less than impressive. Instead of talking about age, comment about how smart and intelligent she is.
Give Her Space
She has her own life to live and you must respect that fact. You don’t expect her to save all her time to hang out with you. Wanting to spend too much time with her will only make her feel choked and stifled. This might make her crave for someone that is more of her age.
Compliment Her
She’s smarter than the average girl you’ve rolled with and knows how to appreciate any odd compliment. As a matter of fact, she’s more likely to want you complimenting her than ever before. Pick your words carefully and watch her glow in appreciation as she slowly falls for you.
Dress To Kill
Every older woman out there has probably seen and experienced much more than you have of emotional situations and every other thing. This means she has a good grasp of what and how to dress for every occasion.
For you to have a shot at her, you must get your dress code right whenever you meet up with her. For instance, you don’t expect to have her falling for you if you’d wear a T-shirt to a corporate event.
The situation is even made worse if you have been able to establish some form of romantic connection with her as this may lead to her feeling embarrassed in front of her mates. This situation will likely lead to the end of whatever you dreamt of having with her. Do your research and live up to her expectations.
Stay Clean And Trim
One of the reasons she wants to consider you is because of your youthful vigour and trim physique. Keep your beards well trimmed and don’t allow yourself get heavy or lacking in fitness. Pay good attention to personal hygiene. Smell good and keep your body trim.
That’s what would keep her attracted. If not these things, she’d have stayed with someone that’s more in her age range.
Select Good Locations
You’d definitely have to take her out on dated and that can be a lot tasking given the fact that she has quite a lot of experience in that area.
What you should have at the back of your mind while selecting a place is that she’s a strong confident woman who has an idea of what she wants. Choose a location that’s matured and cool. A place a woman of her age deserves.

(ii) Does EFCC actually understand their duties here ?
(iii) Is EFCC by their action not sabotaging Nigerian economy ?
(iv) If EFCC should to arrest any of the parties , shouldn't GTBank who dubiously deducted Innoson money from his account and have debt of about N8billion to pay Innoson that they should arrest ?

Romance / This Hilarious Piece On “slay Queens” Will Make Your Day by emmatuxz(m): 1:39pm On Nov 15, 2017
Slay Queen has been making calls since she joined this Bus.

Slay Queen is talking loud; so loud everyone can hear her phone conversation.
Slay Queen is using an iPhone 7. I didn’t know it was an iPhone 7. Aunty kept telling her caller that her iPhone 7 battery is low and she wasn’t with her Samsung galaxy 8.
Slay Queen said she missed her flight to the U.S but she’s not bothered because she didn’t want to go there in the first place, that her Father forced her to go on a vacation she didn’t want.

Slay Queen said she was on her way to her ‘5 star’ hotel to cool off from pressure from office and her Rich we even have any 5 star hotel in Nigeria?

Slay Queen said she just made a payment of 500k for shoes and bags she bought from an online store in Dubai.
Slay Queen said it’s either a Diamond Jewelry or nothing.

Slay Queen ends the call.

If she was that rich why didn’t she simply Uber her Movement? Anyways maybe she was so humble and wanted to have a feel of life on the other side.

I’m here thinking of my life. Life has been Unfair. The only thing I can boast of is a tecno phone and a monthly subscription. Calling me broke will mean that there’s light at the end of the tunnel because my situation is far worse and someone paid 500k for just shoes and bags.

No Problem.

Victor 0 Village People 1

‘Madam that Rice small for #100 oh, add small rice for me na. Okay put beans #50, plantain 50, spaghetti 50 and 2 meat. Madam double the nylon for me abeg. Thank You’

That Voice sounded familiar.

I left my space on the queue and took a quick peep on the last person that bought food in Mama ‘Do Me Well’ shop.
It was our own Slay Queen.

This time the sun had separated the brown powder from the Red powder on her face like it was some fractional distillation.

Don’t they have food in the hotel or is t they have food in the hotel or is the Chief Chef in the Hotel on maternity Leave? Abi the 5 Star Hotel don catch fire?

Again I said to myself, Maybe she was so Humble and wanted to have a feel of life on the other side.

May God bless that Slay Queen. So down to Earth.

Sports / No Red Card Betting Tips (the New Goldmine) by emmatuxz(m): 7:22am On Nov 03, 2017
NO RED CARD TIPS:

The key to successful sports betting is in gaining a regular edge over the bookmakers which will culminate in consistent profits. If you can have a little bit of fun along the way then that’s a huge
bonus . Certain types of alternative markets, such as the ‘cards market’ in football, fall squarely into both categories and are therefore worthy of serious consideration.
The football cards market isn’t, as the name might suggest, a massive trading post where people meet up to swap their stickers or play Top Trumps. It’s actually a type of bet where using
skill, judgement and ability to correctly extrapolate the relevant information, you can make financial gain by predicting how many cards will be shown in any given game, which player or players are most likely to end up in the referee’s little black book or which side will amass the most bookings.
There are five fundamental factors to take into consideration before placing any cards market bet.

Five Factors of Betting on Football Bookings (Card Bookings)

#1 - The Referee
#2 - The Diver
#3 - The Local Derby
#4 - The Niggler
#5 - The Strong Centre Half

#1 - The Referee

While it’s ever-more fashionable to berate referees and bang on about how much technological help they need, be it in the form of vanishing spray, goal-line technology or indeed a brand new pair of spectacles, knowledge is power when it comes to assessing how strict or how lenient each ref is.
There are several useful resources for ascertaining a ref’s harshness, such as soccerbase.com, statbunker.com, guardian.touch-line.com and so on. These and others are handy to assess referees’ form in terms of their previous ‘card history’ which are vital tools in predicting the frequency of yellow and red cards .

#2 - The Diver

The cliché ‘make the ref make a decision’ is applied to that master of the theatrical fall, the diver. The more divers picked for a match, the higher the number of cards dealt out will be. Put it this way, if the diver is successful, he will get his opponent booked. If unsuccessful, it is almost equally as likely that he will be on the receiving end of a card.
Obviously, the English Premier League’s most persistent diver, a certain Mr Luis Suarez, no longer plies his trade in the UK, but there are plenty more players who fit the bill. Arguably (and sadly) there is at least one diver in every Premier League first eleven these days as divers are an essential part of all clubs in the age of ‘the best con artist wins’.

#3 - The Local Derby

Derby matches turn even the most mild-mannered players – and fans – into total lunatics for the days leading up to the game and the 90 minutes plus stoppages (for pitch invasions) on match day. Inevitably, cards are rife in derby matches and although the odds often shorten as a result, there is nothing wrong in backing what virtually amounts to a sure thing. Can you really imagine a Celtic/Rangers match, for example, without any bookings?
Factor in which ref has been assigned to preside over the fighting in the event a football match might break out at some point. Some refs, although they are admittedly a dying breed, enjoy the thud and blunder of a derby match and will go to great lengths not to get their book out until someone is virtually decapitated.
Examples of ‘heated’ Premier League derby matches: Newcastle v Sunderland, Aston Villa v West Brom, Arsenal v Tottenham, Manchester City v Manchester United, Everton v Liverpool.

#4 - The Niggler

Like the diver, all top professional football clubs have at least one niggler. You know the one. He’s the player who always pulls shirts, trips opponents up, argues with the ref and generally does everything in his power to get booked, despite his coach claiming that he’s a reformed character and is showing a ‘new found maturity’.
Identify the nigglers before you make your cards market selection and consider yourself to be first in line at the payout queue if both sides happen to have three or four nigglers in their ranks.

#5 - The Strong Centre Half

Inevitably, the strong centre half will have to ‘take one for the team’ from time to time in order to stop the opposition striker having a clear run on goal. There are several strong centre halves plying their trade in the Premier League at present and if there happens to be four of them on the pitch at any given time you might want to turn away as the carnage unfolds.
Politics / President Proud Of His Administration's Achievements In 2 Years by emmatuxz(m): 6:14pm On Oct 31, 2017
President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed his admiration for the significant achievements of his administretion since he assumed power two years ago.
Pointing at issues such as the 'technical defeat' of Boko Haram, the Niger Delta, improved power, the Treasury Single Account (TSA) policy, and agriculture, the president said the country's prestige has gone up due to the great works of his administration.

He made these remarks at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the All Progressives' Congress (APC) at the National Secretariat in Abuja on Tuesday, October 31.

The president expressed his appreciation for the support of his party's leadership in helping his government run smoothly even when he was on medical leave in London for months.

He also thanked the principal officers in the National Assembly especially Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Speaker Mr. Yakubu Dogara for helping his administration achieve great success by putting Nigeria above their own personal interests.

The president said, "We can be proud of our achievements in the last two years, Boko Haram, Niger Delta, Regular Fuel, Improved Power, TSA, Agriculture and Fertilizer, above all, the knowledge that corruption will not be tolerated in this Government. We all know there is CHANGE.

Nigeria’s prestige has gone up, Nigeria is now credit-worthy, a clear testimony of which was the over-subscription of the Euro-Bond by 4 times.

"Nevertheless, we are not resting on our achievements. I am quite aware of the challenges before us.

"Let me thank you all again for the commitment and dedicated service to our Party and to remind you that much more will be required of you in the coming months. I hope we can continue to depend on you.

"If we keep united and rise above petty or personal quarrels we will surely achieve the desired CHANGE in the country."
Politics / New SGF Is Babachir Lawal’s Cousin’ by emmatuxz(m): 6:05pm On Oct 31, 2017
Following the sack of Babachir Lawal as Secretary General of the Federation and the appointment of Boss Mustapha as Secretary to the Government of the Federation, a member of the House of Representatives during the Second Republic, Dr Junaid Muhammed, has revealed that Boss Mustapha is Babachir Lawal’s cousin.

Juniad told Punch’s correspondent;

“Before you begin to celebrate the appointment of Boss Mustapha as the new SGF, do you know that he is in fact, Babachir Lawal’s first cousin? This is a continuation of the cronyism and nepotism the Buhari-led administration has become infamous for”.
However APC’s National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, has risen to defend Buhari after Nigerians dragged him for failing to direct further actions on the sacked officials.

“Few days ago, when the President directed the dismissal of Abdulrasheed Maina, some people said that was right but what about the suspended SGF, BD Lawal? But we as a party said look, the President is the only person who has all the information. All of us can only have one side of the story or the other.
“But the President by the virtue of the position he occupies is the only one who has all the information and he would do what is necessary at the right time, now we have been vindicated and it shows that the President has not in any way waived his commitment not to tolerate corruption at any level no matter who is involved.”
Similarly, the Arewa Consultative Forum applauded President Muhammadu Buhari for sacking Lawal and Oke. In its reaction to the development, the ACF through the National Publicity Secretary, Muhammad Ibrahim Biu, said, “The action taken by President Buhari on the report submitted by the Osinbajo Committee that investigated the suspended SGF and the DG NIA is appropriate and timely” Bolaji said.
Politics / Buhari Aware Of Maina’s Reinstatement, I Warned Him —hos In Leaked Memo by emmatuxz(m): 5:59pm On Oct 31, 2017
The Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita,  has said  President Muhammadu Buhari is aware of the reinstatement of a former Chairman  of the Pension Reforms Commission, Mallam Abdulrasheed Maina, into the civil service.

She however said she warned the President against it.

Oyo-Ita said that her warning was based on the implications such reinstatement would have on the anti-corruption war of the Federal Government.

The HoS stated this in her memo to the Chief of Staff to the President, Mr. Abba Kyari.

The memo, with reference number HSCSF/HCSF/LU/COR/FCSC/750/T, was dated October 23, 2017.

The memo, titled, “Re: Abdulrasheed Abdullahi Maina,” was received in the office of the Chief of Staff to the President on October 23.

A copy of the memo was sighted by our correspondent in Abuja on Monday.

The President had directed the HoS to investigate the circumstances that surrounded the return of Maina to the civil service.

He gave the directive following the public outcry that trailed Maina’s reinstatement.

Maina, whose whereabouts is still unknown,  has been accused of embezzling pensioners’ funds running into billions of naira and is currently under investigation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Explaining further, the HoS said she met the President after the Federal Executive Council meeting of Wednesday,  October 11, where she verbally warned Buhari against bringing Maina back to the service.

She, however, did not say what the response of the President was after briefing him.

Oyo-Ita said, “Please, note that the OHCSF was never in agreement with the reinstatement and consequently never conveyed the approval of the FCPC to Mr. A. A. Maina, nor approved his posting to the Ministry of Interior or any other MDA

“Rather, I sought audience with His Excellency, Mr. President on Wednesday, 11th October, 2017 after the FEC meeting where I briefed His Excellency verbally on the wide-ranging implications of the reinstatement of Mr. A. A. Maina, especially the damaging impact on the anti-corruption stance of this administration.”

The letter partly read, “Further to your letter Ref. SH/COS/100/A/1570 dated 23rd October, 2017 on the above subject matter, I write to inform you of the circumstances leading to the irregular recall of Mr. Abdulrasheed Abdullahi Maina.

“I wrote to place on record the following facts as it permits to Mr. A. A. Maina who was dismissed from service on 21st February, 2013.

“The move to recall Mr. A. A. Maina was at the instance of a series of letters from the Attorney General of the Federation to the Federal Civil Service Commission requesting the commission to give consequential effect to the judgement that voided the warrant of arrest issued against Mr. A. A. Maina which formed the basis for the query and his eventual dismissal.

“The letters herewith attached as Annexes I-III are:

(a)  Ref. HAGF/FFCSC/2017/VOL.1/1 dated 19th January 2017,

(b) Ref. HAGF/FFCSC/2017/VOL.1/ 2 dated 21st February 2017; and

(c)Ref. HAGF/FFCSC/2017/VOL.1/1 dated 27th April 2017.

“The FCSC thereafter requested that the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation should advise the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior to consider the AGF’s letter and make appropriate recommendations to the commission and this was so communicated to the Ministry of Interior.

“The Ministry of Interior took the matter to the Senior Staff Committee of the ministry and recommended the reinstatement of Mr. A. A. Maina into the service as Deputy Director.

“The OHCSF forwarded the recommendation to the FCSC which has the constitutional responsibility for appointments, promotion and discipline for further action.

“The FCSC in consideration of the letter from the AGF and the recommendations of the SSC of the Ministry of Interior consequently approved and conveyed the reinstatement of Mr. A. A. Maina with effect from 21st February, 2013 vide letter herewith attached as Annex IV.

“(vi) The letter of reinstatement, as communicated to HCSF Ref. FC. 4029.82/Vol. III/179 dated  18th September, 2017 attached herewith as Annex IV, ostensibly also copied the Ministry of Interior which is the one erroneously used to document Mr. A. A. Maina on a claim that he has resumed work since 28th September, 2017. The Ministry of Interior informed the OHCSF of this development vide letter Ref. MI/1436/II/24 dated 16th October, 2017 from Ministry of Interior stating that Mr. A. A. Maina has resumed with effect from 28th September, 2017 is attached as Annex V.

“Please note that the OHCSF was never in agreement with the reinstatement and consequently never conveyed the approval of the FCSC to Mr. A. A. Maina nor approved his posting to the Ministry of Interior or any other MDA. Rather, I sought audience with His Excellency, Mr. President on Wednesday, 11th October, 2017 after the FEC meeting where I briefed His Excellency verbally on the wide-ranging implications of the reinstatement of Mr. A. A. Maina, especially the damaging impact on the anti-corruption stance of this administration.

“However, I have requested the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, to provide any documentary evidence to support the claim of reinstatement and posting of Mr. A. A. Maina by OHCSF, since after his dismissal.

“The letter to the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior is attached as Annex VI. The foregoing is accordingly submitted for your information and further consideration.
