|Romance / How Do I Handle This Trouble Maker by Brunosamel(m): 10:58pm|
As a professional barber I went to shop on Sunday cuz we are always busy and have large customers on Sunday after a hectic day I decided to close for the day while walking home my apprentice called me, saying I should come to the shop that it is important, I told him I have already close but due to the way he was pressing my attention I decided to go back. On getting to the shop I met a strange man who was not barbing but his friend was, he's gionee phone was having issues, showing error on the screen I simply told him oga your phone needs flashing but he said it's not flashing that I should do factory reset for him, I didn't hesitate I did factory reset and the phone was stock on
On boat showing encryption unsuccessful...
The man took rampage as I tried to explain but he wasn't listening instead he accused me of spoiling his phone. I said oga bring the phone tomorrow I will use system to flash it but unfortunately he didn't bring the phone the following day but brought it a day after due to the fact that he took to other places and they brick the phone completely, it was not charging and won't power on either.
Due to the fact I only work on weekends he gave the phone to my boy telling him I should fix the phone if I don't want trouble of which I ignored until the day we met...
The day we met I told him to take his phone to gionee office and they will repair it for him but he found it offensive and threatened me whether I wanted us to go to police station, I told oga don't threatened me with police cuz I'm not a criminal I was only trying to help, I have never been charge for any criminal offence the only time I went to jail was when I you younger and dumb I stole my sister money and she put me in jail for that a day. He wanted to attack me but some guys in my shop held him and begged him to leave me he started bragging about taking a gun shot going to prison and the rest I kept my cool and didn't utter a world at the end for peace to rain I apologize and offer to take the phone to gionee office he gave me two weeks...
Due to my tight schedule I couldn't take the phone to gionee office for two weeks and the day that I took the phone to gionee office the staff told me its not Nigeria use and they can't help me, tired and disappointed I called him and told him he's phone is dead that they couldn't do anything about it... He said I should come to a particular venue close to working place....
On meeting him he talk and brag I kept quite he asked me on what I'm going to do about it I said nothing, he consulted a third party and four of us lay down what transpired... After said and done the third party asked him what he want me to do and he's response shocked me He said I should give him 20k he will add it up to buy a new phone, I said okay I will get back to him cuz I don't have any money on me and he was like telling the third party that he want to fight me to the extent he remove his watch, I didn't utter a word cuz I have already see he want trouble I told him oga I won't fight you cuz you are my senior and I left the venue to look for the money to give him cuz he a gave me one week deadline....
Sad and disappointed cuz my clear intention to help him turn against me, I took the phone to my friend who repairs phone and explained to him what happened to the phone and he said he can't do anything about it, after pressing him he said I should open the back of the phone he directed on what to do after some trials boom the phone boots up, at the moment I became the happiest person in the room cuz the phone was worth way more the money he said I should give him....
Now my mind is in limbo cuz I don't know if I should give him back his phone or sell it at a higher price and give him the 20k he demanded for I already have a buyer who want to buy the phone 30k What's you opinion on this?

|Religion / Re: Pastor Kumuyi Coming Down From Limousine by aluyapreston: 10:55pm|
first of, I dont go to church. secondly, you dont know anything about the bible and you usually sound like a very bitter person. Kumuyi does not demand offering and tithes and util you have a video to prove otherwise go to your cave and research
Malachi 3: 10
New International Version
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
King James Bible
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
now for the new convenant God never condemned that his servants feed from offerings and tithes
Luke 11:42 NASB
But woe to you Pharisees! For you pay tithe of mint and rue and every kind of garden herb, and yet disregard justice and the love of God; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others.”
Moreover, as you Philippians know, in the early days of your acquaintance with the gospel, when I set out from Macedonia, not one church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you only; for even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me aid more than once when I was in need. Not that I desire your gifts; what I desire is that more be credited to your account. I have received full payment and have more than enough. I am amply supplied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent. They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.”
2 Corinthians 11:8
New International Version
I robbed other churches by receiving support from them so as to serve you.
now just so you know, paul was a pastor who worked yet he received supplications. then you with your flayed knowledge state that a pastor that do not work should run a church and not sustain himself and his family. i know there are fakes out there but abeg stick to your blind feminism as your narrow mindedness there is always appreciated by your fellow little brain women. the same person that support femal promiscuity wants to talk about bible
|Politics / Re: 2023: How INEC Employed Card Reader To Shortchange The South by Eriokanmi: 10:53pm|
2015 and 2019 elections were marked with irregularities to favour buhari. We saw videos where teenagers were massively thumbprinting for the apc in the north and one old man watched on, with cash in his hands to share with them. If INEC eventually walks their talk by embracing electronic voting system eventually, there's going to be war because northerners are election riggers historically. They may not accept the result if it doesn't favour their candidate . It would be worse than 2011 riot as instigated by Buhari in his usual unguarded utterances.
It still amazes me how borno, a war torn state recorded such huge number of votes when a great number of electorate had been displaced with lots housed in the IDP camps.
Right now, the number of BVN entolees in Lagos is higher than that of kano by millions. In a free and fair election, there's no way the north could have an upper hand in any general election, expecially those deciding who would be president of Nigeria, should the candidate come from the south. When the north recently claimed that they voted obasanjo a northerner massively , I laff. They had no option than to do so because their military leaders had said power must go to the south as backed by the UN when Nigeria was returning to democracy in 1999. After the election, they came up with political sharia to topple his government because he didn't allow them to share free money. The earlier the south realises that the north would never feel cool with a southern candidate and, the better for them. We have two countries in Nigeria, the north and south.

Infinite Love 107
As King Tessy entered his jeep, he let out a quiet sigh of relief. If anyone of Otobo’s man had indeed opened his car door they would have detected the persons they were looking for, under the traditional clothes that he had bought for his wife in the back seat.
They were even properly hidden, if they had only looked closely, they would have easily detected them because four people cannot be well hidden under the few clothing in the back seat. If they had been discovered, Otobo would have riled up his men and extricated them and he, even though a king would have not been able to help them because Bayelsa was not his kingdom and even in his own kingdom, many people still didn’t support him for breaking the age-old tradition of marrying a local as his first queen. He was indeed fortunate that he had managed to bluff his way out of that tight corner. He slotted the key into the ignition and as the jeep roared into life, Otobo came to the driver’s side window.
“Bros!” he said.
Tessy was startled by his sudden reappearance that he at first, became frozen out of shock. “Hmm!” was all he could muster at Otobo’s gravely looking bony face.
“I respect you, dat’s why I kom bak.” He said whispering.
“Hmm.” Was still all that Tessy could manage to say.
“I no be persin wey like faolense an I no wan fall ya hand…”
“… so I kon tel you say, make you see like bad persin. And I no be ya enemy. Infact, I be ya friend, if f**king bodi dey tear eye for you make you kall me. I mean any f**king persin. I go kom, no mata where ya dey or de persin dey.”
“Ya! I dey tel you. I promis you!”
“Ya, becos I hear say many peeple dey give you sh*t for ya town on top say ya marry Yoruba woman. If ya make I clear dem jus kol me one time! Dat tis rasizem, me I dey like make persin dey rasist. You hear me, bros?”
“Hmm.” Tessy hummed as if mouth was still full of the mysterious item he was chewing and also because he wasn’t sure how to respond. Otobo before now had been antagonizing him but now he was offering to be a hitman for his opponents. “What is going on here?” he thought but then he remembered that he still had the runaways that Otobo was searching for partially concealed behind him. So, he spread himself up straight as much as he could so as to block the back-seat view from Otobo.
“So, bros abeg ehn? I wan make ya help me meet wi de agensi about my amnesty pardon. All dis chiefs, dis old men for we land no dey try at all. Na so so moni dem go dey collekt. You na fresh blood like me. Ya got fee push dis pardon well make e happen, abi no be so?”
“Hmm!” hummed Tessy finally understanding Otobo. He had realized that annoying the chiefs and making a scene at the Eternal Ruby would not work in his favour and so he was looking for protection himself.
“Gud, thank you bros. I go kol you, ya hear?” and with that he stepped away from the jeep and turned back to see his men facing him in curiosity.
“I SAY MAKE YA KARRY YA BUCKET KOMOT FOR HEAR! Ya mates dey buy new cars, you stil dey buy Tokunbo. And you go say you be king. Abeg roll!” he growled at Tessy in order to reinforce his tough guy status with his men. And Tessy turned the ignition once more and finally drove away from them while constantly checking the side mirror to make sure that they weren’t following them.
After driving for a few meters, Tessy was finally convinced that they were out of danger of Otobo.
"Alright, you guys can relax now! I don't think anyone is following us." he announced.
"Oh thank God!" Michael said emerging from underneath the clothes.
"Thank you very much, king sir! You have really saved our lives. Gerry, how are you doing?" Dayo asked.
"Fine. I can't believe it's all over. Now I can put that man behind me forever." she said relieved.
"Oh, your highness. Thank you so much! You have saved us as I knew you would. I have complete faith in you, your highness." Onos said and Dayo added.
"Oh, yeah? If you had complete faith in him then why have you peed your pants?"
"Wha...no, I didn't..."
"Yeah, you did. Your pants have wet stains."
"Those are from sweating. I was sweating!"
"Sweating In this cold car?"
"Yes, I was..."
"ALRIGHT! Mr Onos, please come and sit beside in the front up here." And Onos practically ran out of the car to sit beside King Tessy.
"Thank you again, your highness. If not for your quick thinking, we wouldn't be here."
"You're welcome. I am glad I could help you."
"Erm...but, how exactly did you manage to get us out?" Onos asked.
"Well, I basically threatened to put a curse on them with my royal charms."
"Do you have royal charms?" Dayo asked from behind.
"No, of course not. Look!" and he opened his mouth to reveal what looked like brown sugar "Chocolate!"
"What?" Michael gasped.
"I don't have royal charms. I'm a Muslim!"
"You are?!" Onos asked.
"Yes, I am. I promised left traditionalism many years ago. That's the main reason why I have many oppositions in my tenure. To many people, I have abandoned my native traditions for a woman, an outsider for that matter."
"Oh, I see." Onos said.
"And why did you do that?" Dayo asked.
"It was a condition for marrying my wife at the time and I don't regret it."
"So, you really didn't curse those guys?" Michael asked smiling.
"No, of course not. I don't know how to do that. But my grandfather had always told me that a royal charms are feared by all, so i faked it." Tessy said and they all laughed.
After they had crossed into Delta state and Tessy had driven them to the boundary...
"Well, sadly this is where I have to drop you guys off."
"You have been very kind and generous to us sir. You have given us a lot today." Michael said.
"It's no problem. I did what anyone would have done."
"Not really, sir. You did more than that. You saved our lives by putting yourself in danger when you could have easily walked. Onos was right. You are a great king!" Dayo said and Onos leaned into him.
"Now, who's tripping over him." and they laughed once again.
"So, what's next for you guys?"
"Well, I have to get back to my family in Bayelsa. I have to go pick my wife and wife and take them back home."
"We're really sorry about all the trouble, Onos." Michael said.
"Yeah, we really didn't mean to disrupt your family life like that." Dayo said.
"Are you kidding? This has been amazing! I don't regret anything, not one tiny thing. I've missed you guys." And the three best friends hugged. "Oh, but what about Gerry?"
"Me? Now that I'm finally out of that house and that place I can finally get back to my work. I've been wanting to get back to reporting much sooner but without my family's support, I've been hesitating to go about it alone. Maybe i'll try working for the BBC again but this time from London."
"London? You mean like abroad?"
"Uh huh. Yeah!"
Dayo thought about her leaving and for some reason he panicked. He didn't want her to go. He wanted to spend some time with her as he had hoped that they would get to know each other better.
"No, no you can't go!" he said.
"Why?" she asked.
"Yeah, why?" Onos and Michael asked.
He started at their faces, they were waiting for him to give them a good reason. He hadn't expected that. He hadn't even expected to object to her travelling in the first place. But still, he didn't want her to go so he added.
"Well, she...has men searching for her, Otobo and his men for example."
"Which is exactly why she should leave. So that she would be safe."Tessy said Michael aggreed.
"Yeah, but...she would be alone and who says London doesn't have worse people than Otobo. She shouldn't be alone. She's a married woman for God's sake!"
"You know what, you're right?" She said.
"I am!" he said not expecting that.
"Absolutely, I need to go with someone who will keep me safe."
"Yeah, and you're my husband, so you should come with me."
"Wha... you want me to come with you...to London?" he asked surprised.
"But...what would I be doing in London?"
"Annoying Londoners, of course!" Onos said and Michael laughed.
"Anything you want." she said smiling and Dayo looked to Michael for agreement.
"You should absolutely go!" Michael said.
"Yeah, I'm in agreement." Onos added.
"Okay, then I will." he said.
"But what about you, Mr. Michael? What are you going to do?"
"Oh, I'm going to the aviation school in Kaduna state, sir?"
"Oh! Zaria right?" Tessy asked.
"Then take my card." and he fished for his complementary card from his car and gave it to Michael. "Here! Tell them you're the king's candidate for the region this year and anyone who denies you will have to answer to the entire Edo Kingdom."
"Wow!" Dayo gasped "YOU'RE THE BEST KING IN THE WHOLE WORLD!"
"See? I told you so!" Onos said.
"OH MY GOD!" Michael said and gave his gratitude over and over again. Eventually, they had to part. Onos travelled back to Bayelsa and Tessy went home while Gerry and Dayo followed Michael to the very gates of his aviation school.
"Well, you did it man. You brought me here!" Michael said to Dayo.
"We did it together, Mike."
"With a little help from me, right?" Gerry added
"Of course, dear." Dayo said as he hugged his wife and kissed her on the cheek. Michael still couldn't believe that they had grown very fond of each other in the few days that they had met while only about last week, they were both complete strangers until they rushed their marriage so that Michael could get into aviation school.
"Darling, could you give me a minute with Michael alone please?"
"So, how is marriage life treating you?" he asked first.
"It's okay. Actually, it's great. If I had known getting married would make me happy I would have done it sooner." he smiled.
"Yeah, you got really lucky because she's a great person."
"Yeah I know, right?" he said staring at his brand new bride giving a few notes to the Almajiri beggars and looking so amazing in her new armless white traditional Fulani dress that she bought if only a few minutes ago at the market. They both stared at her for a few moments until Dayo became serious and said.
"Michael, I know you don't want to talk about this but...what about Angela? If getting married has taught me anything, it is that you have to marry the right person. And Michael, she is your right person. Don't you think you should at least..."
"Dayo, look. She got engaged. She made her choice."
"Yeah, but she doesn't know how you fee..."
"DAYO! I really can't talk about this right now! I have to focus on achieving this. THIS! Everything counts on this! Right now and I cannot be distracted by anything else. OKAY?"
Dayo fell silent. He really knew the kind of pressure Michael was under but he also knew how sad he was about Angela getting engaged to someone else. But if Michael wasn't ready to talk about it there was nothing he could do. Except hope that, when he was finally ready to talk about it, it will not be too late.
"Okay. Okay, man. I'm sorry for...bringing it up. You're right! You have to focus on this, right now. You're here. Can you believe it?"
"Really, I can't."
"Your dad would be so proud!"
"I know. Thanks man. For everything." and they hugged for the longest time until they both let go and went their separate ways.
It was the worst Day of Angela Nwolisa's life. She felt worse than sad, she was depressed. She was engaged to marry a man she never wanted and everyone kept pushing her towards it regardless of her feelings. Her mother was against her. At work they kept talking about it and about how it would help her career to get married to a fellow actor. They practically threatened to ostracize her if she refused. Her friends told her to do it and nobody for once asked her what she wanted. And she had tried several times to reach Michael on the phone to no avail. She tried calling his phone several times it was always switched off. So she left a text message.
You have no idea how much I have missed you. If I had a chance to hear your voice I would gladly leave everything and run to take it.
Do you remember during secondary school how you stood to the principal and that boy for me? All my life, those days are all I have ever thought about. You, the boy who stood up to giants and monsters and defeated them for me.
You had and you always have made me feel so special and important. The value I have placed on myself I learnt if from you. It is through your eyes that I have always looked at myself and believed in myself because it is only through your eyes that I have been made to feel priceless.
I love that about you and I love you. I want to belong to you, you alone and no one else.
But please, Michael. Please come back. The giants and monsters have come back and I cannot fight them alone. I'm not ashamed to tell you that I am not strong enough to fight them all because with you I can just be myself and that is enough.
Come back is all I ask. After this I will never ask anything of you ever again. Please, come back, Michael. Come back to me.
"Ife mi?" she called him in her affectionate term for him meaning 'my love' in Yoruba language.
"Yes, eshet?" King Tessy answered his wife.
"Who is Michael and ...who is Angela?" she asked holding an old Nokia phone.
"Who?" he asked confused.
"I found this phone while taking out my clothes from your car and it seems to belong to someone called Michael and his girlfriend must be this Angela person."
"Oh, yes of course!" he said remembering. "I gave Michael and his friends a lift from Bayelsa to Warri a few days back. He must have misplaced his phone in my car."
"That's a shame! I hope he would have seen this Angela soon."
"No, I doubt it. He went to Zaria and if everything goes well, he might be gone for a long time."
"So, you mean...there's no way he will get this message?"
"I don't think so, eshet."
"Oh, that is so sad." she said and they kept the phone on their table feeling sorry for the estranged couple.

AntiChristian:My beloved Muslim friend brother, I am going to throw a bit of quite a lump of stuff, and sure hope you can keep up with me. I promise that I'll try and keep it short and sweet
The Hebrew word, Elohim, is a masculine plural noun. This fact is arrived at because of the 'im' suffix, which is the masculine plural suffix. Now the interesting thing is that the Hebrew language is not English language and so Hebrew plurals do not always work the same way as they do in English language.
Here is an example that explains. The Hebrew word עץ (i.e. ets) means 'tree' and is a singular noun. Now, the plural form of this word is עצים (i.e. etsim), even so, funnily enough, it doesn’t mean 'trees' but rather, it means 'wood.' Sο in Hebrew, 'wood', a singular, is written with a plural noun. Another example to explain with is דם (i.e. dam), which means 'blood', a singular concept while the plural form is דמים (i.e. damim), it does not mean 'bloods' but instead means 'bloodshed', another singular concept.
So what's the point, being driving at here? Well, it is that, in order to know, if the plural noun in Hebrew is being used as a plural or a singular noun you need to look at the context, both textually and grammatically how the word, Elohim, is used. Take a look at the following phrase from Exodus 12:12.
'"Please," Jacob implored him, (i.e. Esau)
"don't refuse. If I'm to receive favor from you, then receive this gift from me,
because seeing your face is like seeing the face of God, since you have favorably accepted me. '
The Genesis 32:22-32 narrative has polysemous interpretations and so one, can say that, Jacob wrestled with more than one 'man' in that night. He first wrestled with himself. He wrestled with Esau. He also wrestled with God
Let me ask you a few personal questions. The questions are:
1. Have you ever in your altogether spent life on earth experience a sciatica attack before?
- I have and I can tell you for free that, it isnt a good experience to have
2. You do know what a sciatica attack is, dont you?
3. Do you know one of the causes of sciatica attacks and how it actually happens?
'Then Jacob asked Him,
“Please tell me Your name.”
But He said, “Why is it that you ask My name?”
And He declared a blessing [of the covenant promises] on Jacob there.'
Note from Genesis 32:29 above, that Jacob never thought he encountered Gods or gods. Also noticed that Jacob didnt talk with a 'them' but he talked with a 'Him' Also the response Jacob got back didnt come from a 'them' or 'they' but the reply came from a 'Him' and 'He'
The point is that when you look at the passage contextually, the textual and grammatical clues, reveals that although the word Elohim is a plural noun, but because of masculine singulars in the verse, the word Elohim actually is being used in a singular sense and so therefore must be translated as 'God' and not be translated as 'gods' nor 'Gods'
AntiChristian:Remember from above up there, that the grammatical and textual context needs to be reviewed, in order to know, if a Hebrew plural word is being used as a singular or plural noun.
In this context, Elohim is singular, so please give it a rest and seriously dont sweat it anymore

Last last you na agree you agree that you and your religious organisation and leaders don't follow God's viewpoint on any of your own teachings
1. Now you jump enter Jesus viewpoint. Jesus viewpoint was absent when God's viewpoint said you should worship Jesus too
how did Jehovah's servants know God's name in the new testament......Janosky
How will they know when God's viewpoint deliberately removed and omitted it from the new testaments?
How will they know when God's viewpoint states Jesus and his apostles never utter it from their lips not to talk of mouth paapaa?
Acts 1:6-7 & Luke 19:11, will Achorladey accept that he is LYING.... Janosky
This part na serious laughter so you know times and seasons ARE not under your Jurisdiction but under God Jurisdiction but that same God and God's viewpoint states the preaching work will end in the twentieth century
Last last na agree you agree that you and your religious organisation and leaders don't follow God's viewpoint on any of your own teachings. Na Web! Read the conversation again and again na inside web You fell into it straight.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with a one who believes in Jesus Christ owning industries, land , etc., so long as that income is not fleeced from God's flock in the name of God.
What is wrong is when men install themselves, and their businesses over God's flock - in the name of God - and then proceed to depend on them for their personal enrichment, no matter how modest you may think it.
