Politics / Re: Scrap Office Of First Lady – Peter Obi by Reptyle(m): 11:45am On Oct 17

https://www.vanguardngr.com/2021/10/scrap-office-of-first-lady-peter-obi/

Abeg all of these politicians should go and sit down with their pedestrian suggestions for good governance.

Office of first Lady or not has never been the problem of governance in Nigeria. Yes it is not a constitutionally recognised office. But there is hardly any where in the world where the wife of the President will not be accompanied by top security and have a retinue of aides even if she chooses not to be in the public eye.

Cutting off the office of first Lady is too pedestrian to make it a campaign promise. Rather, tell us what you will do to undertake a wholistic review of the entire governance architecture, keeping the cabinet as lean as possible to eliminate waste.

Tell us how you plan to catalyze the constitutional review that is necessary to take the fluff and perks out of governance so that only the people that are genuinely interested in serving the people come into politics and aspire for office.

All of these first Lady talk is becoming jaded abeg!

Religion / Re: Pastor Paul Enenche: Compulsory Vaccination Is From The Pit Of Hell (Video) by Reptyle(m): 9:50pm On Oct 15

My take on this is simple: God said the antichrist will come. Neither he nor his agenda can be prayed away. The only solution to escaping the antichrist according to the Holy Bible is to be raptured with Christ when he returns to take the saints home. So I do not know what sort of empty prayers a lot of Christians are praying these days binding the antichrist and his activities.

The government has clarified that contrary to reports in the news, they are not forcing anyone to take the vaccination. But they will not allow access to any Federal Government building without full Covid 19 vaccination as of December 1st. It makes common sense to say that in exercising your right not to take the vaccine, you cannot impede the right of others to a safe workplace. Take the vaccine or stay home...PERIOD!

May God have mercy on his church!
Politics / Re: Falana To Buhari: Don't Let Police Disrupt Upcoming #EndSARS Protest by Reptyle(m): 10:44pm On Oct 14

https://punchng.com/dont-let-police-disrupt-endsars-protests-falana-tells-buhari/

Citizens are within their right to organize a protest...but I do not think a protest is necessary at this time given the fragile security situation across the country IMHO. The tendency of an open protest getting hijacked and running out of control like we witnessed last year is extremely high and no matter how we view it, the Police does not have the capacity of coordinating and controlling a street protest against government.

We all watched on TV as the almighty American security infrastructure struggle to control violence during the BLM protests and again during the post-election violence in America last year. The Nigerian police is under-staffed, under-trained and ill-equipped to effectively manage a protest and prevent it from degenerating into a riot.

There are much more civil ways of marking the events of last year in a much more solemn way rather than a street protest. WHile criticizing government, we also need to be responsible citizens.

Family / Re: My Cousin refuses to do any house chores because he's a guy by Reptyle(m): 5:29pm On Oct 11
Abetterperson:
My mom sister son decided to stay with us because of his family financial struggles. He's a bit older than me but we are of the same age group. Firstly I noticed this guy is sexist and when I say sexist I mean it. He believes a woman job is to clean the house and take of the family, a good woman in his eyes is a woman without an opinion, smile and always do what she is told.
He views me as an inferior, he tries to order me around and gets angry when I refuse. He doesn't really talk to me which honestly I think is for the best.

When he first arrive at our apartment he was shocked that he had to do any chores calling it a woman's work. He doesn't respect females infact he body shames women.

Am on my period and we are the only ones in the house because of my cramps am in pain. In the morning we ate bread with bama and tea. Just now this guy asked me what we are going to eat because he's hungry (he's doesn't like eating outside, he prefer homemade food). I told him I don't know,next thing he told me to figure it out.

Just because I Know the kind of person he is, I kept quite. He came to me again asking the same question, I told him to help me ground pepper and a bit of onion so that I will be able to prepare stew and rice, normally I would use our bender but because there is no light and am afraid to put on our gen because of my mom.

Next thing I hear is this guy just shouting like a failed musician, telling me that I don't have character and respect. I didn't answer because to me he's a madman

Am waiting for my mom to come, I Know she will take his side because she doesn't want him to feel maltreated but what is all this.

Am not his wife still yet this is no way to treat a woman whether she is your wife or not.

The guy unfortunately picked up this poor mindset from his upbringing. There are a lot of homes where parents actively make their male kids feel superior to their female kids by not allowing them to do any house chores. Secondly, you can have a situation where the boy watched his father treat his own mother like a house maid in the name of "culture and tradition" and felt that is the way life is wired.

I think your mum and dad can lovingly but firmly help him correct this warped mindset now that he lives with your family. On your own part, you need to be a bit more understanding of the fact that he just comes from a different upbringing from yours. Rather than tow this part of hostile aggression, I suggest you adopt a more friendly approach so your position on the matter can be well received.

https://politicsnigeria.com/breaking-ipob-not-as-bad-as-terrorists-bandits-in-the-north-gov-ikpeazu/

This governor's take is like saying a burglar is not as bad as an armed robber because a burglar can be reasoned with and is only stealing because he is hungry.

We need to stop this attempt to rationalize evil. What is bad is bad. Boko Haram did not start off as this uber-violent terrorist organization we know today. They evolved because northern politicians and ethnic jingoists were all over the place rationalizing their existence rather than stamping them out. Guess who is suffering it the most today?

The southeast needs to take a stand against this growing IPOB/ESN menace before it grows out of hand. There are more peaceful platforms and means to negotiate the terms of our nationhood than this open call for violence.
Health / Re: Nigeria Missing As UK Recognises COVID Certificates From Over 50 Countries by Reptyle(m): 3:39pm On Oct 04
vanbonattel:
Nigeria is no longer a recognised country and has become a pariah among the committee of nations. The world has now come to see that a bunch of terrorists are in charge of Nigeria, hence they are being snubbed by all world bodies.

Nigeria is not the problem. Nigerians are the problem.

It is not Nigeria that asked Nigerians to begin to sell vaccination cards to travelers that are yet to be vaccinated at the airport. It is not Nigeria that asked Nigerians to set up a syndicate that sells fake covid 19 results and vaccination cards to travelers in the UK, US and UAE.

Nigeria has become a pariah because Nigerians just do not know how to behave themselves. We carry our knack for crime outside the shores of this country and begin to blame Nigeria when those other countries resist our misbehavior.

Nigerians need to do better.

Chigold101:
May God console the family.

Shame on you for concluding that's it's IPOB that killed him even without any investigation from any security agency

This is a very good take on the issue at hand. I like how you called for investigations before jumping to conclusions. The question is, are you usually this pragmatic when the media announces that herdsmen have committed another murder without any shred of evidence?

Would you have been this restrained if the family had announced that the murder may have been carried out by herdsmen? Would you have called for investigations before accepting the claim?

I know it is hard to swallow the fact that your kinsmen have evolved into the evil that you condemn in others...but it won't help if you people begin to make excuses for them. IPOB may be fighting a worthy cause but the fact is that there are bad eggs among them that are exploiting the struggle for their own personal and violent agenda.

Boko Haram did not start out as the ultra-violent force that we know them to be today until some violent and extreme entities joined the Group. Then they also began to enjoy the support of politicians and people alike who saw them as an agent to disrupt southern politics and chase Christians away from the north. They thought Jonathan will rule forever so they were happy to make the country ungovernable for him. Northerners cheered them on until they turned into the hydra-headed monster and destructive force they are today. Now Jonathan is no longer President but it is too late and the north is suffering the effects of their hypocrisy today.

The Southeast needs to condemn these violent crimes and call a spade a spade. IPOB has deviated from its core objectives of peaceful agitations and is now feeding on its own children. The Southeast needs to understand that the Buhari they all love to hate, will soon wrap up his tenure and retire. But if IPOB is allowed to perpetuate this legacy of evil, it will soon get out of control. It is time for the Southeast to speak with one voice and curtail the activities of these renegades before it gets out of hand.

ijustdey:


https://tribuneonlineng.com/futo-alumni-write-institution-want-explanation-on-pantamis-professorship/

So if I understand clearly, what this article is saying is that a body of ex-students of a school are threatening to sue a school they graduated from because of an administrative decision the school took to hire a new teacher?

How does that work? Is the administration of the school accountable to the alumni? Why do we thrive in "anyhowness" in this country?

The best the alumni can do is express their disagreement sighting reasons why they feel Pantami should not be hired. But to seek to compel the institution to reverse their decision by writ of summons is an aberration. That case is going no where.

The university does not owe the alumni any explanation as long as the university senate approved the move and it was endorsed by the owners of the school, in this case the Federal Government of Nigeria, case closed!
Travel / Re: Pilot Fights Passengers Over Max Airline Flight Delay (Video) by Reptyle(m): 9:45am On Sep 20
micronut:
A serious disagreement was recorded here inside Max Airline flight going from Abuja to Bauchi when a woman complained over the 4 hours flight delay, and the pilot and the other crew, demanded that the woman should be taken down from the flight for insulting them even though they are trying to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure safety.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dz5FgnGN8sY

The Pilot was seen particularly exchanging words with the woman while other passengers supported her and social reaction from people have shown people calling for the pilot to be sanctioned for being rude.


For some people, it's a parody of "Customers are always right" while for some others "delays can be excused for passengers safety".

Who is wrong here, the passenger or the pilot? see People's reactions on Facebook as Shared on Wall of Hajia Aisha Alubankudi.

With this pilot's disposition, I would think twice about flying on this plane with him in command.

Lot of people do not understand that one of the main dangers of flying is having a pissed-off or mentally challenged pilot who might be harboring suicidal thoughts.

This one in the video looks like he is going through a great deal of mental stress and I would be very wary about being on a plane he is flying.
Health / Re: Ever Had A Bone Dislocation? Share Your Experience With Traditional Bone Setters by Reptyle(m): 5:42pm On Sep 15
Most of those trado-bonesetters end up doing more harm than good. To them, all bone and muscle injuries can be corrected by pulling and rubbing the area roughly. That way, they could end up aggravating what would have otherwise been a minor injury.

I STRONGLY advise anyone against patronizing them. Instead, seek out a good orthopaedic surgeon and get your injury checked out. It might be more expensive. But at least it could help save your limb.

I’m sure the owner of the bread business has made all his profit now.

When I read statements like this, it just makes me feel that most Igbos do not have a problem with oppression if it is being perpetrated by fellow Igbos.

Is this the sort of repressive administration that IPOB wants to run in the Southeast? An administration that legislates people's freedom of movement and robs them of their rights to freely determine what they would like to do? If that is the case, why do they have a problem with being a part of Nigeria then? Or is it no longer oppression when an Igbo oppresses a fellow Igbo? Would you be this pragmatic if the bread seller was attacked by people from another tribe?

Car Talk / Re: I Left Front Seat For My Friend's Wife But She Cautioned Me by Reptyle(m): 1:14pm On Sep 14
Stankovic22:
Good evening nairalanders!

This is what happened. A friend of mine who is like a brother to me and has impacted my life positively in every way bought a new car. We work together and live in the same neighborhood so we go-to work together.

It happens that I do sit in front with him always while the third guy stays at the back. So today, on our way back from work, the wife called for him to come pick her and when we got close and stuck in traffic, I decided to vacate the front seat and move to join the other guy at the back but while trying to go my friend was like guy where u dey go... I say I wan create space for Iyawo and he was like Wetin dey worry u, sit down jor but I insisted and went to the back.

So when we beat the traffic and picked up the wife she was like why is the front seat vacant and my friend said... He left the seat for u... The wife was like, please its wrong, that I shouldn't have left.

I was like its your space and I felt it was the right thing to do, to join my other guy at the back before we get to you.

People was I wrong to have vacated the seat?

Neither of you was wrong. You were right for respecting yourself and vacating the front seat because for some women it is a big deal and they can embarrass you.

She is not wrong in telling you not to vacate the front seat for her next time. She was basically just letting you know she has no qualms with such deference to her status. At least now you know that you won't be embarrassed if you decide to keep the front seat next time.

For some women, it is so much of a big deal that they will take exception if their mother-in-law or even their own mother decides to take the front seat.

I have a friend whose wife kicked up a very big fight by pointedly telling her mother-in-law to vacate the front seat where she was already seated and get into the back. The mother-in-law came down and angrily decided to take a cab to the venue of the event. Husband got angry, came down, and decided not to go to the event, and "madam front seat" was left alone to drive herself to the event. This incident happened last year. But I can tell you that things are yet to return to normal in that home even today because of that singular incident.

I do not know why people make an issue of small things like where to sit in a car.

We scheduled to get married last July but due to the financial issue and her parents saying we have to wait till she is done with school we have to change our plan but she is so bitter that she is not getting married as she planned. She will be going back to school in 2 weeks' time. since

Now, I have discovered that she hardly cum during sex, in fact, she hasn't cum while we make love. She once told me she makes herself cum that is before we met in person around February which she promised to stop.

After she found out my finances is not strong, she got back into chatting with men for cash, yes she told me that is how she makes money to survive in school, that she presents an aura of relationship to men and they will be giving her money, and when she is tired or when the person insist in seeing she will block or just fisle out.

Now she just told me she is lesbian, she is cos she can't get pregnant as her father is a pastor and can be satisfied without the risk associated with men/woman relationships. That she is attracted to women though she hasn't done that for a while as she has prayed against it. She still masturbates while in my house.

The scholar wrote extensively on how the President’s surname, Buhari, was not his father’s real name but a name derived from a particular town.

Kperogi added that Muhammadu Buhari’s father is called Adamu Bafallaje (or Bafalle in Hausa).

Travel / Re: The Bad Behaviour Of Some Nigerians Abroad by Reptyle(m): 2:39pm On Aug 09

I think the behaviour of Nigerians in diaspora needs to be curtailed or rather we need to caution them often as they are bringing more problems to us. I don't get how some people will be lucky to get visa to a more developed country and go there to constitute nuisance and commit crime to earn a living, some of them even plan before hand to go and overstay their tourist or visit visa and become illegal immigrants.

This is all shades of wrong, we are doing more harm to ourselves as a nation, we should stop that. Some parts of Europe, Nigeria is synonymous with prostitution, while India, South Africa, Thailand etc, a Nigerian is being looked at as a potential drug dealer, other countries like Turkey, Ghana,UAE etc, the scammers there have done a very good job in giving us a bad name.

Recently, some Nigerians in Dubai engaged in cult clash taking human lives in the process which ended up getting a direct employment visa ban on Nigeria.

Ghana, on the other hand has visa free access to Singapore, Dubai, South Africa just to mention a few, while a Nigerian passport holder will have to go through a lot of cash and stress just to visit these places.

I know the country is bad and most people are looking to leave, we should not go to another country to commit crimes, we are only making this harder for ourselves, we will all be stuck here with nowhere to go.

There's no reasonable place a Nigerian passport can take you without visa, even amongst the visa free countries and visa on arrival countries, there's still a high chance of being sent back at the port of entry.

Imagine Nigerians having to wait for four to five months just to get a response from South African embassy here, same Africa oh, just response, not that it'll be approved oh.

Please we should be good ambassadors of our country, there are a lot of Nigerians doing fantastically well in various sectors as medical doctors, nurses , in academia as lecturers, engineers etc, let us not allow the bad deeds overshadow the good deeds.

You'll hardly hear of a Kenyan, a Senegalese etc being caught in a crime outside of their country. The pressure to make it big and fast then come back home to pepper others is a contributing factor! We can do other legitimate business and still make money.

Stop going to Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Malaysia, Thailand, Turkey etc all in the name of collecting UPDATE to make it!. Please!

It is really unfortunate that with all of these and so many more criminal activities of our fellow Nigerians in diaspora, we are quick to lampoon the country for the poor state of our international passport. Ghana recently gained an ease of visa restrictions to the UAE for instance and Nigerians went amock on social media blaming Buhari for the situation.

I feel that until we all realise that we are all collectively responsible for improving the country's image by carrying ourselves in line with the laws of other countries, we will not make much progress.

I won’t be surprised if those awards were bought. He seem like a good cop, but I will like to know why he is yet to arrest any one from the north where banditry and terrorism has ravaged. Why only the southern most of which they kill extrajudicially. We don’t even know if they are guilty or not.

He did not arrest anyone from the north you say?

Are you sure you read everything that was posted? Read the list of arrests and accomplishments again...this time, slowly.

Are you trying to tell me that Buhari met one on one with Boris and Boris did not order him to release Igboho and Kanu with immediate effect or face sanctions shocked

If you had even bothered to read the full story, you would have realized that the "Tope Alabi" referred to here isn't the gospel singer but a "normal citizen".

Please normalize reading beyond the headline ffs! angry
