The picture below shows Nnamdi Kanu at the parent's burial performing the traditional burial rite of shoving sand into the grave as a son would do.
This is as against wide speculations that he never showed up during the period to witness and pay last respect to his deceased parent.

|Health / Mild Autism Symptoms by Panther123: 8:00am On Feb 09, 2020|
I realized that my nephew 5 exhibits some autism symptoms. Do we need to be worried? My impression is that he will outgrow it. The father said himself was autistic but outgrew it while growing.
|Travel / Re: The US Travel Ban: 6 Important Lessons For Every Nigerian Traveler by Panther123: 12:53pm On Feb 08, 2020|
Davidflight:I think the major cause of the ban is the Bubu's visa on arrival policy that will accommodate all and sundry including terrorists who will be readily assimmilated as citizens so far they are Muslims and claim they are from Kano.
Were the records not like this before ? Why is US just waking up? Let's ask these salient questions. Our brainless leaders keep dragging us to mud.

Nltaliban:He spoke in parables. I remember the Jews trying to stone Christ for churning out some rare statements capable of being understood spiritually but infamy to mere mortal men.
Its simply to be chewed and understood. It could mean: "keep the secretary at arms length" and not "relieve her of her job". The audience also matters in parables and words capable of deep deciphering. It is always directed for consumption of the spiritually mature, but mere canal minded that also get wind of it will always go berserk.

|Travel / Road Bumps/ Speed Breakers Don't Have Signs In Nigeria by Panther123: 10:16am On Jan 02, 2020|
I realised that in Nigeria, there are no signs indicating where there are bumps erected on the roads for speed controls. This makes driving especially in the night very challenging. This is really sad.

|Celebrities / I Saw This Ice Prince's Poster In Monaco by Panther123: 4:57pm On Jan 01, 2020|
I was wondering wether Ice Prince is probably up to some concerts in Monaco after he fizzled into the thin air for a while now that no one knows his next plan. Or could this be an already performed concert where even Akon perfomed?

Excellentmind:with due respect to the views of the man of God, those sound so trivial to buttress his point. What's the weather weather thing in an era when things are losing their usual times due to global warming. Don't MFM have experts that would have better advised him on those comments before he went public ?

By the way, what's that weather mantra about the time In Bethlehem and the census? OMG. What of global warming that has changed most things about weather and how they used to be? I am more than disappointed .

|Celebrities / Why Is Fela So Respected Despite His Shortcomings? by Panther123: 7:42am On Dec 26, 2019|
Just a view, Fela Kuti the Afrobeat music legend lived with many reprehensible habits despicable even to the traditional African norms which he extolled in his songs and also to the western values and religion which he conversely criticized. For instance, Fela had multiple sex partners who he dubbed his wives. He smoked weed in unimaginable proportions and declared free sex and weed so to speak in his shrine.
Good he was an advocate of liberty and good governance which gained him several persecutions in the hands of the Nigerian government and also endeared him to many even outside the shores of Nigeria. He detested religious dogma and neocolonialist tendencies of the West.
I also know legends like Bob Marley and Michael Jackson whose shortcoming are often spoken of
alongside their great deeds and fame but not Fela. Even among the Muslims and Christians which faiths he derided with relish desist from any comment that seems to malign him. Fela once said that white people brought Jesus Christ in order to destroy Africa. I have never seen this being used to even shortcircuit his posthumous accolades. What a man!
Omoyele Sowore in his little struggle has got a lot of backlash even from his kinsmen accusing him of being a political charlatan for speaking from both sides of the mouth, reason they refused to intervene in his cause; he was left to face the music till his American papers and affiliations gained him a resounding freedom from DSS gulag. Nnamdi Kanu also faced a similar fate.
It is true that charismatic leaders' charisma beclouds the psychie of their followers and admirers but Fela possessed no mere charisma, he was and is an enigma. Charismatic leaders like Late Chief Gani Fawehinmi and Ahmed Isah which people I am opportune to come in close contact with never wield such height of attributes. They are mere men but Fela had something of a god. Gani for instance made a regulation for his own funeral and even demonstrated it beyond what may be called a Will; which road map hitherto stands un truncated decades after he was gone. But Fela died and never died!!

This pot hole opposite Gwarinpa Dominos Pizza broke my car back axle. I call it trap pot hole . you will never know that its a pot hole. But if you run on it, the impact is quite surprising. I have never seen a place like Nigeria in my years of travel.
|Travel / Re: FRSC Arrests Mary Ikoku For Using Google Maps In Abuja by Panther123: 12:52pm On Dec 04, 2019|
Kayharry:DM me if you can. This is not an established offence. I will do this case for you if you are interested and they will rather pay you damages for wrongful arrest. Besides, you can't move around aAbuja without GPS. There are just few directional signs
|Car Talk / Re: FRSC: Using Google Map While Driving Is A Serious Offence by Panther123: 6:31am On Nov 28, 2019|
fergie1989:there are just few directional signages in Abuja different from what we have in major cities like Jo'burg, New York and even Lagos. The major thing that will direct you is google map. Without that you are just driving by mere instincts, climbing bridge and coming down. I heard the same FRSC has been directed to award this contract and huge amount allocated but they are still rotating it around interests for easy embezzlement. FRSC lacks the moral justification to be taking about prohibition of google maps especially when it come to Abuja. Nigeria is the only place where you run with the hare and at the same time hunt with the hounds. I have never seen a place like this in any part of the world.

Pls add this in your prayer times.

So much noise about a mere cob that looks harmless. The courage that shot the Valium could have comfortably caged her to a nearby zoo or games park. Funny the way things are done here. ���
|Pets / LSG Tranquilizes, Removes Lion From Victoria Island by Panther123: 9:43am On Nov 19, 2019|
Samson Folarin The Lagos State Government has tranquilised the lion found in a house at the Victoria Island area of the state. The Head of the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit, Mr. Yinka Egbeyemi, confirmed the development to our Correspondent on Monday. He noted that the lion was removed around 1.30pm. The task force boss told The PUNCH that the Indian owner had yet to honour the invitation of the government. ￼ Veterinary doctor, other state officials with the tranquilised lion’s cub.

NewHeaven3:so sorry, just try your hands again but rethink your answers to those questions . I have never in my life encountered a moment as embarrassing as visa denial in the manner I met it at us embassy. I lived and studies in Europe and just came back from the UK just before my interview. I never knew someone on a scholarship could be denied visa. So I was kind of naive with the Europe mentality. But then we keep pushing it.
I also deferred after 2 refusals but I am trying to improve on documenations .
It is well, let's give God the glory for his mercy above all.

|Travel / Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by Panther123: 7:20pm On Nov 11, 2019|
Adibebenny:our stories look similar. I was also refused the F-1 Visa and that would be my second refusal while Preparing for Spring January resumption.
Mine is more bizarre cos I have full funding. To cut a long story short, the question I remebeered that was repeated on the second interview was my family. I am married with 2 kids and the apparent suspicion I reckon could be that I am planning to abscond with them to the US. I told the VO that my wife has a big business but that peharpse sounded unconvincing meanwhile they are not going with me but would visit during vacation and I would also visit when I'm on holls. Besides my phd research entails field worl that would .evwn be done in Nigeria after about 2 yeare of course work. After the first refusal everyone including my school was like just be straight to point and maintain a simple rule : if you are not asked, don't answer; if you are not requested to, don't supply. I did this and got fokd again. I remebered I was even discussing my research with the VO on the first interview and she listened with rapt attention. About the above rule, I think some straight answers are shrouded in some negative assumption when further explanations are not rendered. Again, it seems to me like any visa for longer stay no matter what justification has got some strict restrictions recently. VO was quick to increasingly probe my family including asking the kind of work my wife does and how old my kids are but ignored the information that I managed to quease in under tense questioning that my company gave me a leave of absence and that I earn really big (who will leave such salary behind?). I have enough money in my account despite the funding and my brother also gave me his account statement and sponsorship letter (he didnt want to see that). It may be sheer luck against me but its quite bizarre. I have since braced up and become more determined than ever (pls no spiritism here, I don't really entertain such like village people things)
Lastly I am also in a big dilemma whether to try. 3rd time. And could there be a date in this December?
Its still a mystery to me why the visa was denied a second time.
