The north is a lot organised. Little card reader problems and everyone acting civil.

Massive turnout too. Turnout in the North makes one dizzy

From what I gather the turn out was massive, people were patient and that helped the process. I thought that the at would be a problem area arising from insecurity.

Good day Nairalanders,

Nigeria is on the verge of making history with another general election. I think it would be nice for Nigerians at home and diaspora to follow happenings in polling stations around the country from this morning till the close of the poll and as the results are announced. It would be nice to scan and upload results sheet as pasted in polling centres too.

Please let nobody turn this thread into a campaign ground; it's useless. People have made up their minds already.

May the best man win!

Hi Sirius,

I don't know you, I don't know anything about you.... Hey, I am sure none of us can. But through your eyes thousands of us have come to see the fight the NA is undertaking in the North East with a new perspective. Many of us have come to appreciate the NA more through your efforts.

I honestly don't know why, but I feel so sad that you are forced to leave us. You have come to symbolize what we want in the average Nigerian Soldier; intelligent, knowledgeable, focused, courageous and confident. It feels like I am missing a family member!


God be with you sir. You will be home before long to the arms of your loved ones and in the hearts of your grateful compatriots! Just make sure you keep them journals. One day, I hope to be first in line to buy a copy. History and Nigerians unborn will be immensefully grateful. Stay safe!

Following this thread I have come to identify with the hope, concerns, morale, frustrations, pride, patriotism, and sacrifice these military boys are going through. For the first time in a long while I feel the pride reading about the resilience of these our "boys". I just feel sadness that what they truly need is yet to get to them. Any time I get here I always wish I were in position of authority to do all Sirius Black has been suggesting. I just wonder what we as ordinary citizen can do to help our boys in uniform......what?

I am not an Iran advocate but the man has not been stopped from practising his private religion like is the case in China. I am saying he knows the law in Iran and chose to break it.

Under an Islamic state, Jews and Christian communities are allowed to set up their own courts because they are not judged by the Sharia , conduct their businesses (including alcohol and pork) within the state as was the case with the Ottoman Empire.






No no no no no sir, the issue is that the man was the BE HANGED for leaving Islam, not for practicing his religion. Then the charge was REDUCED to preaching (which Madam Veronique obviously did) which carried a three year sentence.

While Veronique is getting applause for conversion and bring 1000 people to Islam, Ndarkhani was to be HANGED for doing same!

Youcef Nadarkhani, 34, spent three years behind bars waiting to be executed to refusing to renounce Christianity. His charges were lowered to evangelizing to Muslims, which carried a three-year sentence.

Politics / Re: 10 Outrageous And Exorbitant Proposals Of Nigeria's 2014 Budget by tiarabubu: 11:08am On Jan 03, 2014
I think there are some outrageous items there but also there are some perfectly logical allocations that makes sense.

Here is my take;

1. Newspapers

No surprises there. The Presidency comprises several parastatals: National Hospital, BPP, BPE, NBC etc. The State house has a formidable bureaucracy comprising the President, VP and senior aides, Permanent Secretaries, Directors, Deputy Directors, Special Assistants, Secretaries etc. Also, there are archives, libraries, meeting rooms, waiting lounges etc that will be supplied papers. It is fair to concede that these people will be supplied Newspapers.

If just 30 Punch Newspapers is supplied per day @ 150, thats N4,500. If that is extended to 10 Newspapers. that will be N45,000 . There are also magazines, journals and foreign publications that will be bought for archival and perusal by those who should know.

So I think this expenditure is in order.

2. Villa Zoo

This one is indefensible. Who ever included this in the budget should be caged for life! Zoo? In the State House? And 14.5 for two animals? Are they buying Dragons? shocked shocked shocked Utter nonsense.



3. Budget Preparation

Actual serious budget preparations require money. Whether that is done in this Country is obvious. There are needs for state surveys, sector analysis and surveys, data crunching, review meetings, consultations, even hiring and purchases of specialist software (e.g. for what if analysis, modelling etc),hiring of consultants in some cases etc. But are these done? I am not sure of the cost and I doubt if it is properly applied



4. Another Private Jet

Even if you are a GEJ die hard fan, this one is so indefensible. I am sure GEJ himself will have no justification for this. This is callous and wicked spending


5. Fuelling Generators

This is expected. Unless the OP is contesting figures. The other day a VC was complaing that his campus spends N1.8 million a month running Generator due to unreliable power supply. Its a no brainer.


6. Foreign and Local Trips of the Presidency

I am sure that this money is to cater for GEJ's outrageous entourage (BTA and hotel bills etc). Its outrageous.



7. Good Governance Tour

Outrageous. Fashola is sooo on point on this one



8. Magical block of classrooms

*falls from iroko tree* If someone is not fired for this..... Well... Odua is still around abi? Hope NASS does the needful.


9. State house feeding

There must be rats in the state house stealing expensive cutlery. How else can one explain the purchase of cutlery year in year out? Do they expire? and the cost is too outrageous.

10. Airport Flowers

This one interests me. One needs to see the actual line description in the Budget. If it says landscaping, I could agree that landscaping (hard and soft, earth movement and drains, pavements and surfacing etc) for such a place can cost a lot. But just flowers is indefensible. One principle of landscaping is the use of local plants to ensure ease of maintenance. And following that principle, the cost is on the high side

Religion / Please Spare A Thought & Prayers For Iraqi Christians This Christmas by tiarabubu: 9:46pm On Dec 25, 2013
While we celebrate Christmas please;

(i) spare a thought and prayers for Christians in Iraq
(ii) spare a thought and prayers for Christians in Eygpt
(iii) spare a thought and prayers for the repose of the Madalla Bomb victims and their families as well as others who were martyred for their faith in the course of the year



Another dark Christmas for Iraq's Christians


(Reuters) - It's Christmas in Baghdad, and once again Iraq's Christians are celebrating behind blast walls and barbed wire.

At least 34 people died in bomb attacks in Christian areas on Wednesday, some by a car bomb near a church after a Christmas service. A church attack in 2010 killed dozens.

As prayers are offered and gifts handed out, many are wondering what a surge in violence to its worst levels in half a decade and politicking ahead of April elections means for a community whittled down by years of carnage and migration.

On Christmas Eve, the Mar Yousif Syriac Catholic church in western Baghdad looked like a walled fortress. Soldiers and police ran bomb detectors across cars, searched trunks and bags and patted down visitors before the evening ceremony.

Inside, the red confetti-strewn Christmas tree, bright blue-and-white tile mosaic, and strings of Santa Claus-themed bunting contrasted with drab streets strewn with concrete blocks and barbed wire outside.

But pews which would have overflowed with worshippers a few years ago were barely two-thirds full - a reflection of the fact that the Christian community has fallen from about 1.5 million before the U.S.-led invasion to about half that.

"The future is very critical because of immigration," said human rights activist William Warda before Tuesday night's service, estimating 10 to 20 Christians were still leaving the country each day.

"Many Christians ... are fleeing from the country because of this issue, because there is no sign of a bright future."

Egypt's Coptic Christians feel vulnerable amid nation's upheaval

KERDASA, Egypt — Three times a week without fail, the sound of ancient chants reverberates from the blackened walls of the Church of the Archangel Michael. Once aglow with precious icons and flickering candlelight, the Coptic church outside Cairo now stands nearly bare, looted and burned by an angry mob more than four months ago.
In this holiday season, many Copts, adherents of one of the oldest Christian sects, see Egypt's turbulent times as a test of their faith. Although the country as a whole has been roiled by violent political upheaval, its Coptic minority feels particularly imperiled, as do many fellow Christians elsewhere in the Middle East.
In the region that gave rise to their religion, Christians are a dwindling minority. A long-standing Christian exodus has accelerated amid the war in Syria, an increase in sectarian violence in Iraq and gnawing hardship in the Palestinian territories. In some countries, the uprisings of the "Arab Spring" also strengthened the hand of Islamists, adding to Christians' anxiety.
Copts, who make up about 10% of Egypt's population, have long suffered discrimination and oppression, not only at the hands of fellow Egyptians, but under successive governments as well. Since Egypt's 2011 uprising against Hosni Mubarak, they have been buffeted by the rise — and spectacular fall — of the Muslim Brotherhood, the region's largest and oldest Islamist movement.

Syria's minority Christians under threat from extremist Muslim rebels


DDAMASCUS — The Arab Spring has turned very wintry for many Christians in the Middle East.

As the Christian minority in Syria celebrates Christmas, local leaders say they feel increasingly imperiled by extremist Muslim rebels, an added threat amid a deadly civil war.

Christians and Muslims co-existed for centuries in the region, but in several countries including Egypt, Tunisia and Libya, ultra-conservative Islamic groups have launched violent attacks on minority groups in order to rally their supporters against infidels and propel themselves to power.

Extremist rebels regularly shell Christian neighborhoods in Damascus and kidnap Christians for ransom in areas under their control. GlobalPost has learned that Christians are also being kidnapped in Damascus by militias supporting Bashar al-Assad.

Some 10 percent of Syria's 22.5 million people are Christian, both Orthodox and Catholic. Each Christian faith has its own story.

Islam for Muslims / Re: A Muslim's View Of The Ban On Alcohol In Kano State by tiarabubu: 10:48pm On Dec 02, 2013
BetaThings:

Really?
Please can you quote where you did this type of analysis when Muslims were (and still are) precluded from building a mosque in Rivers State University while the authorities of same University built several churches for Christians
They have even ignored court judgment
Sorry, Christianity CANNOT be an intolerant religion! Only Islam is



But Christians mounted a sustained campaign against Islamic Banking in this "free" country!
I can even be an unwitting victim of the reckless driving by an inebriated motorist.
So outside religion, some people in free countries frown at alcohol because it can fuel violence or accidents
I am scratching my head how Islamic Bank to be funded by private money (just like GT, First, Zenith and other banks) will affect anyone to justify the opposition by Christians
I am sorry, I missed the memo, Christianity CANNOT be an intolerant religion


Here we go. Christians have been fighting against Hijab for ever. What harm it does to them, I cannot fathom
They cane Muslim pupils in PUBLIC schools. When a newspaper reported that Lagos state had banned the Hijab, Christians were agog online
Sorry, I forgot that Christianity CANNOT be an intolerant religion

I have not seen Muslims take a position on a matter that will make Christians commit any sin. None
Christians want Muslims to deal in Riba (a sin) by using conventional banks
Christians want Muslims ladies to expose part of their bodies that Allah require them to cover (a sin)
The FG spending public money put up a national christmas tree in Abuja and ensured members of diplomatic corps were present
This army that would have been screaming against Hijab ban did you seen them? - please can you show me Muslims protesting?
But Islam is intolerant!

Let me ask: what would have been the reaction of CAN if it were a national Eid-el-Mawlid tree?

Hijab is a religious obligation and is compulsory everytime a Muslim lady is outdoors (it is not required at home)
Just like normal societies don't ask people to go out in the nude and take their baths at home with their clothes on
Banning alcohol is not an attack on any religion - it is not a religious duty - we should not mix dissimilar issues

BTW If people want to get drunk, they should be free to provided they don't run me over
However even Guinness recommends people start drinking as from 6pm

As for VAT, I support isolating VAT income from non-halal sources
Allah is sufficient for those who place their trust in him. Muslims should not eat from haram sources

Unfortunately, you are not a very good debater that is why I seldom reply you. In your haste to reply you very easily lose context, focus and synergy. I will make an exception today and give a short reply for the sake of your minions. And by the way, the answer to Muslim's missteps is not "Non-Muslims did it too" or "Non-Muslims caused it".


Unfortunately, comparing the biased action of a University with that of a whole State like kano confirms your lack of ability to balance an argument. Unfortunately for you, what you are saying this has been a reoccuring complaint of the Non-Muslim community in places like UDU and even KSU. It is no qualms for Kastina state to build 34 of Mosques with government funds (over a quarter of a billion naira) while some of its citizens are non-muslims and it has more pressing socioeconomic problems! But I let it be so you go figure.


The resistance to Islamic banking was about the CBN using government money to promote a bank that is based on religion. This was the reason for the opposition - e.g. setting up of "expert Council" within the CBN made up of Islamic Scholars, using CBN money to promote the bank etc. That was CAN's official position. Of course, others misunderstood, misinterpreted and of course even some Christians misunderstood CAN's official position. CAN's position carried the day as CBN allowed private individuals to fund the bank and did not carry out that misstep of using government money to spend on a religious based bank. And crucially, there were no burning of mosques and murders etc during the Islamic banking debate.

As per your opposition to drinking, thats your problem. As bad as it is, as long as it is not illegal, you can only persuade people through education and reason not some brute force 16 century style of coercion.

As per people not covering up... What is your idea of covering up? If a lady dresses normally and decently and you are still hot under the collar because of exposed hair or face, check yourself. Its your twisted perverted mind that is the problem and not the girl.

As per the Christmas tree, you are joking right? When Muslims were at the helm and bought hundreds of goats and distributed during sallah at the government expense, who complained? Did you know the Minister of FCT and almost all northern governors distributed rams with government money too? Who protested? I was in Nigeria during the last Sallah and many major intersections in Abuja had large signboards proclaiming Sallah greetings from the MFCT, who protested? In fact I will stop here before I unwittingly become guilty of what I am accusing you of.



Just know that Kano was wrong in that action, pure and simple. That action should be judged for what it is . Claiming non-muslims "actions" as the basis for the action is sooooo lame.

I agree wt ur opinion nd jst wanna mk dis clear dt as a current resident of Sabon Gari in kano state, the smashing of d beer bottles was nt done inside sabon gari, bt since the sharia law is not applied in sabon gari, I think d govt cn avoid creatin confusion to Non kano residents by issuin out licenses to those allowed to sell alcohol inside sabon gari, this way their activities nd distributions of d drinks cn b well monitored


One more reason to make some people brand/continue to brand Islam an intolerant religion. While some Muslims insist on their rights in places they are in minority, other Muslims deny some other people those same rights. And for some twisted logic, its ok?!

Just to be clear, I dont do or support alcohol consumption for health and religious reasons, but I believe those who choose to do so can do so. Its a free country and they have the same right to love the bottle as I have the right to despise it. They can sleep on it, but I will never taste of it - Its their choice and its my decision. End of story.

For one the alcohol were seized ON THEIR WAY into Kano. Is the Kano government saying to blazes with non-muslim bear drinkers, we DONT respect your rights to the bottle? What will the same government say if another state were to say to blazes with Muslims, we dont want to see you in Hijab in public, wear it in your homes? Some people will be here scream of their rights as Nigerians to freedom of religion while forgetting that some peoples freedoms to the bottle are being crushed to smithereens in Kano.

Infact lets not even start with the hypocrisy of Kano receiving VAT money, a large part funded by tax on the very bottle this hisbah are breaking.

The OP is right and I am pleased that some Muslims see this for what it is - hypocrisy.

Sad, really sad.





Police enforcing Islamic law in Kano State on Wednesday destroyed some 240,000 bottles of beer, the latest move in a wider crackdown on behaviour deemed “immoral” in the area.

The bottles had been confiscated from trucks coming into the city in recent weeks, said officials from the Hisbah the patrol team which enforces the strict Islamic law, known as Sharia.

AFP reports that Sharia enforcers called Hisbah destroyed over 240,000 bottles of beer along with over 8,000 litres of local brew called burukutu.

Kano’s Hisbah chief, Aminu Daurawa, said at the bottle-breaking ceremony, he had “the ardent hope this will bring an end to the consumption of such prohibited substances.”

A large bulldozer smashed the bottles to shouts of “Allahu Ahkbar” (God is great) from supporters outside the Hisbah headquarters in Kano.

Kegs containing more than 8,000 litres of a local alcoholic brew called burukutu and 320,000 cigarettes were also destroyed.

“We hope this measure will help restore the tarnished image of Kano,” said Daurawa.

Since September, the Hisbah have launched sweeping crackdowns and made hundreds of arrests in Kano following a state government directive to cleanse the commercial hub of so-called “immoral” practices.

The 9,000-strong moral police force works alongside the civilian police but also has other duties, including community development work and dispute resolution.

Alcohol is typically easy to find in Kano, including at hotels and bars in neighbourhoods like Sabon Gari, inhabited by the city’s sizeable Christian minority.

But the Hisbah boss vowed that this was set to change.

We hereby send warning to unrepentant offenders that Hisbah personnel will soon embark on an operation into every nook and cranny of the state to put an end to the sale and consumption of alcohol and all other intoxicants,” Daurawa said.

No, because Islam is from Almighty God, the Creator of the Universe, while pagan beliefs and practices come from the common people of each individual tribe, who came up with these superstitious mumbo-jumbo to alleviate the fear and uncertainty in their bleak and ignorant lives.

Once a land becomes Muslim, it remains the inviolable territory of Islam FOREVER. We as Muslims are FORBIDDEN to cede even one square inch of Islamic territory. God has blessed us with countless miracles in our conquests over the infidels in the Arabian Peninsula, Levant, Western Asia, South and Southeast Asia, North Africa, and Andalusia. It's not our land to cede or give up, it's God's land which has been given to us to enlighten with Islam, and we have no right to abandon this duty from God.

That's why Northern Nigeria (all areas between the Niger and Benue Rivers) is non-negotiable. Same with Andalusia (Spain and Portugal) and Palestine (Israel, West Bank, Gaza).


Then why did you cede Spain and Portugal? Why didnt Allah intervene? Must he use you to capture lands for him if he is the creator of the Universe? Please!

You are dreaming.... please wake up and smell the coffee. Islamic territory indeed! grin grin grin grin grin

alnaijiri: I applaud this gesture for peace, but the real issues remain unsolved. Jos is a Northern state, traditionally a Muslim area. Xians there should either convert back to Islam or move out. Why should the original inhabitants (Muslims) be forced to change their culture in order to accommodate the newcomers and the apostates? Who could be happy seeing their culture changed by outsiders in their homeland?

That is the same question some of us are asking Muslims who go to places like France, Switzerland and Britain and demand that the British and French change their customs and cultures to accommodate Muslims. Why must they agree to segregation, halal meat, sariah zones, hijab, polygamy and shariah law when these things are clearly against their local customs? undecided


By the way Jos is not a State and its traditionally not a "Muslim" area. Its Berom land and every Nigerian is free to live there as I once did. No one has to convert to any religion. Unless you also think the Hausas in Onitsha should convert to Christianity or leave. Do you?


Its people like you that are causing problems in Jos and Nigeria at large. So sad.

I have quoted you bro.

From LIGHT to DARKNESS? I’m still laughing in Mandarin + Spanish!

Alhamdulillah Robeel Alameen to hear this beautiful news. I'm just happy, may Almighty Allah shines His Nur (light) on them and give them more sustenance. I'm just too happy, over happy self. What a great news! One of the best news of this New Year 1435AH.

I pray Almighty Allah guide us and the rest to the straight path, Aameen and at the same time open the heart of the unbelievers, lift the veil covering their eyes, let them see that ISLAM is a perfect religion and it's a religion of peace.

NB: PLEASE DISREGARD ANY NEWS SAYING THAT THEY WERE PAID SOME MONEY, WE CONFIRMED THAT THE MONEY WAS GIVING ON THEIR BEHALF BUT IT WENT TO CHARITY.

You can't spell ISLAM without the word ALMS. By default a Muslim should be CHARITABLE!

Love everyone, including non-Muslims, I live with my Christian block mates and my Hindu landlord, Ma Shaa’Allahu there is PERFECT PEACE! Absolute PEACE!

In history ISLAM never spread by sword or by forcing people. People entered the fold of ISLAM because they are guided. Whoever God has guided nobody can misguide, nothing can misguide him/her not even Human being or Jinn. And whoever gets the opposite should know that the opposite can never put him/her on the right path.

Ma’Salam!!
