|Travel / Re: Before And After Photo Of Igwuruta-Chokocho Road Constructed By Rivers State by Mordecai(m): 5:30am On Jul 27|
Ayam not understanding ooo.
Lemme go back and recheck if there are two Igwurutas and Chokoches in Rivers.
Due to the impassable state of the Enugu-PH expressway from Aba to PH, this road referenced here has been our way in and out of PH.
And I assure you, there are still whole sections of the road that look exactly as pictured in the (Before) picture.
But I will check again, maybe the chicken grew a tooth yesternight.

|Politics / Re: Shettima's Cabinet As Governor Had Nigerians From All Parts Of Nigeria by Mordecai(m): 7:24am On Jul 13|
This is someone that had SAs in their thousands. Hundreds of whom he never had any sort of interaction with.
Ask him to identify these SAs from a lineup and watch confusion set in.
He is a bigot. The audio recording of his conversation with Amosun made it clear.
We won't be deceived.

There is only one way to sell Tinubu's candidacy - Tribalism and ethnic sentiments.

So you have always known that only a court of competent jurisdiction can pronounce one guilty, but you have written sick words about a lot of persons who till date are not convicted by any court.
Now, you mention privacy laws to protect someone who is vying for the highest office in the land, on the matter of his age. Something he should first and foremost declare openly and honestly even if he was applying for the office of a clerk in Yorro LGA.
Hypocrisy at it's worst, if I may say.
I have always maintained that all you BMCs do is play the tribal card. You and your principals are just some dirty lowlife rascals out to fleece the country without a care for even educating the children or providing quality basic healthcare.
Granted, some of you have stolen enough to buy a taste of the good life. But then, dirt is dirt. And you're all dirty inside despite your whitewash. You all stink.
Get in line behind PO. You might still have a chance at redemption.

You acknowledge the differences in the male and female anatomy. You acknowledge the differences in the wy their sex organs function. You acknowledge that the male tends to be stronger than the female, physically. Yet you expect that female aggressors will tend towards the same M.O. used by males?
Please don't go around making baseless arguments. Males can be raped by females. Period.
Disregard this baseless assertion, please. Men can and have always been known to be stroked to hardness/erection while sleeping, or even unconscious. It is not even a topic for argument.
When a man is unconscious, he even tends to stay erect for much longer.
|Romance / Re: Raped By A Lady by Mordecai(m): 4:38pm On Jun 05|
It sickens me when I see people talk of physical strength and assume that because of physical strength, a lady can't rape a man.
If a lady decides to remove your boxers forcefully, the reality is that while she cannot overpower you, you would be the one begging her not to.
If you use your strength, and she shouts and attracts attention, it would be difficult to convince anyone that you're not the aggressor.
The same ones doubting its possibility would be the same ones to treat you as a rapist.
Understanding your situation, you would be the one begging her to keep her voice low, you'd be the one trying to negotiate a way out. And while you're at it, keep it at the back of your mind that ladies mostly do not take no for an answer, especially when they really fancy you.
So please, let us apply wisdom in all things and note that physical strength is not everything

Your first and last paragraphs can only come from a place of bitterness.

If a man hurt you that badly, maybe you should seek out closure. You sure ain't fine.

The question you asked me reeks of contempt. A Nigerian cannot know what a psychopath is?
You're clearly on a mission to indoctrinate Nigerians on Nairaland. You're not from here, you do not understand us, you are not even an onlooker trying to understand. You have been extremely opinionated on family issues, issues you have no clue about the undercurrents. You do not even give a da*n.
At times, you pretend to be a Christian quoting scriptures, at other times, you toss the scriptures to the dogs. The only constant is the ideology you're trying to sell.
Meanwhile, regarding your being a psychopath, you're gradually ticking all the boxes.
|Family / Re: Who Takes Over The Schooling Responsibilities When A Lady Student Gets Married? by Mordecai(m): 8:26pm On Feb 12|
To understand this, you have to see what transpired throughout the process of the wedding.
Most likely, the man was made to pass through a lot of unnecessary hurdles by his in-laws. This can lead to a situation where he would feel he owes his FIL nothing.
This would explain why he's taking such a hard stance immediately after the wedding. It's not normal.
If what I think happened is what really happened, then the FIL should know that there is no way on earth the groom will let his bride return back to her parents, yet he would not raise a finger to assist in her schooling. As a matter of fact, the lady would even take her husband's side secretly because he is justified.
The FIL should vomit out the funds he extorted from the young man for the wedding and pay his daughter's fees. People like him are the ones giving our traditions a bad rep.

I keep noticing you in Family section giving loads of marriage advice.
It appears also, that you are not from around here, you do not even know the culture nor do you appreciate it.
Unless, you're a psychopath, should it not worry you that you've been leading helpless people down the wrong path? Especially because even you would be lost if you were to be married and resident here.
Despite our economic woes, we are a people with diverse and rich cultures, traditions that we hold dear, and would not toss them out the window just to please some directionless moneybags. We would evolve, like humans do.
So, if you have a motive to indoctrinate Nigerians, it would be dead on arrival.
|Politics / Re: God Fatherism: Oyetola Was Installed By "Emperor Tinubu" – Adeoti by Mordecai(m): 8:31am On Feb 11|
Lol, it's like saying that Islam is godfather in Kano. Or that the Pope is godfather in Argentina or Brazil, or that Mbaka is godfather in Enugu.
Granted, the Catholic church has always wielded influence in Anambra because the majority of Anambrarians are Catholic.
Also, because of the role the JCA played in keeping people alive during the war, the elder generation will always defer to the influence of the Church.
However, the Catholic church cannot determine who becomes Governor in Anambra State. They never did. Infact, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, the first Civilian Governor of the new Anambra state is not Catholic but from Salvation Army. Ditto Mbadinuju.
The Catholic bishop of Awka has influence on Obiano, but none on APGA. That is the extent of his power. Nothing more than that.

It's good now, but it was bad when Anenih was godfather in Edo, when Saraki was godfather in Kwara ?
This was the kind of comments by Oshiomhole and Tinubu that fueled the "Edo no be Lagos" decimation of Oshiomhole in Edo State.
Try and be circumspect in your reasoning. Learn to put public interest above your personal political leanings. It won't hurt.
And FYI, godfathers like BAT thrive because of the ease of election rigging. Fix the electoral system up to 60% efficiency and see if BAT, Theodore Orji and other similar

This thwarts the aspirations of millions of highly capable Nigerians. Officials extract “rent” by controlling access to business opportunities. The objective thus becomes to slow down investment not speed it up.
Even the Road Safety Officer whose task is to keep the road safe places himself as a road block, endangering road users, just to extract "rent".

It's because of stunts like this that giving custody to bitter women is not advisable.
One can only imagine how much she'll attempt to poison the child's mind against the father if she had custody.
Fight with the man, ridicule him all you can, but making the child an active part in the conflict is sick and sickening.

|Travel / Re: IELTS: English Proficiency Test Cost As Against The French Proficiency Test Cost by Mordecai(m): 5:05am On Jan 27|
Wrong. So wrong.
Diaspora remittances is the almost the largest source of foreign exchange in Nigeria, second only to crude oil.
The forex from crude oil gets stolen by government officials and somehow find their way back out of the country illegally, but a large percentage of these diaspora remittances actually go into growing our economy.
In 2020, CBN actually tried to make policies that would take advantage of these remittances to crash the dollar rates. Till date, they pay N5 for every incoming dollar.
When Okonjo-Iweala was Finance minister, she once mooted the idea of Nigeria formalising policies to officially become an exporter of labour.
In a nutshell, the Nigerian economy actually gets far more in value from those travelling out than it ever gave them while they were here.
Now, the economy is spending forex it does not have on IELTS. Why should the government not take necessary steps to reduce it?

Authorities need to commission research into these juju practices, and subsequently review our laws, to enable the state prosecute ritualists that kill or harm other humans.
Only fools deny that these things don't work and their denial is giving government the boldness to look the other way while criminal minds are increasingly killing citizens for rituals.
|Business / Re: CBN To Implement E-Invoice For Importers, Exporters From February 1 by Mordecai(m): 5:41am On Jan 22|
To submit a Form M today, invoices are attached.
With an e-invoice, the only difference will be that once the invoice is uploaded and submitted, the various parameters in the invoice, e.g. price, item, invoice number, hs code, date would be uploaded to a database and these invoices, aggregated will assist NBS in mining data later.
Hitherto, invoices were being checked before approval of the form M. The same people will still do the same checks before approval.
Another instance was the assumption that the e-product certificate will enhance quality of goods imported into the country.
We all know better today.
In a nutshell, the government just gets to make money from invoicing of goods, and get statistics of all invoices in a relational database for use later.
That's all that changes.
|Politics / Re: IDP, Aisha Umar Commits Suicide After Being ‘Raped By NGO Official’ by Mordecai(m): 10:41pm On Jan 19|
My comment was not about right or wrong. Maybe you should reread it again.
But then, safarigirl, we can tell what is wrong. We always can tell. We know for one, that the horrible act of rape is wrong.
We also know that Aisha Umar's death was tragic and wrong too. For heaven's sake, she lost her virginity at the hands of a slowpoke, lost her sanity too. But her life still had potential, despite what she must have felt. She was not finished.
Insanity, justifiable or not, has never excused killing oneself.
So please, stop romanticising suicide.
Tomorrow, when someone gets raped, they do not need to feel it's okay to end it all.
At that point, when it feels like its all lost, that is when they need hope the most. And your emotional justification of suicide will point any impressionable mind in the wrong direction.
I hope you clear your head and correct yourself.
