Politics / Re: Twitter Says Engagement With Government Respectful, Productive by tmanuelle(m): 5:44am On Sep 14
Truthissupreme:
Jack still use spokesman to address the issue

While a federal minister is the one dealing on behalf of a nation with spokesman of a private firm


Says alot about who is on the receiving end

No, stop being ridiculous and stay objective. Negotiations are on and both sides are not denying it. That Federal Minister is the government's spokesman, that's his portfolio. Help yourself.

Government has nothing to lose to Twitter's irresponsibility, it's just Twitter and people like us who have refused to use APN one day until Twitter starts behaving itself on the Nigerian soil.

And you know what, I'm not losing anything anyways.

So you should commend the two sides for even seeing the need to trash the issues out in the interest of Nigerians who are doing real businesses on Twitter instead of being mischievous early Tuesday morning.

People cant even pay last respects to their dead in peace. PMB and the people around him are very funny. How come they are this scared of one man?

You are very wrong, if Kanu is not scared of PMB why will he run away disgracefully putting Abaribe in trouble and why does he find it very difficult to come back to his Biafra land if truly he leads and rules the entire Igbo nation? Col. Ojukwu ran away too anyways, so what do you expect from Kanu... Only to start what they can't finish.

Kanu's family should bury their dead. But I support the FG saying it won't allow any proscribed organisation to attend as though they are still legal. If Kanu's followers wishes to attend the burial, then they must attend as normal citizens who wishes to pay last respect to departed elders/monarch. As long as they wish to display the flags/insignia of an outlawed organisation, then the military/police too can do as they want.

The security forces are free to do whatever they like with them and in the end, the respect everyone wishes to give to the departed monarch and his wife will be truncated. So it is advised that Kanu's followers should conduct themselves in a civilized manner as normal citizens for the burial to go as planned.

One thing that cannot be guaranteed is whether Kanu will walk free after the burial if he attends That is left for the FG to decide.

This car was first advertised 4 months ago. Why do you think it has not been sold today? It's because people no longer wish to pay for goods that are not commensurate with the price tags.

You could advertise in the open, yet you refused to disclose the VIN in the open and with a rigidly high price tag. People want to see the vehicle information to ascertain if it's commensurate with your price or not.

Family / Re: My Fiancée Has Stopped Picking My Calls, Please Advise Me On What To Do by tmanuelle(m): 1:59am On Feb 08, 2020
ahiboilandgas:
u don deal with woman that way ....u scope her .u dont tell to foot the bills u get the total bill then form at if u are trying hard to gather the whole sum then she will see reason to assist even more than your expectations

This is wrong. A real man doesn't 'scope', why should he? Is it not her wedding? Is he getting married to himself? Where is this entitlement thing coming from? What law, natural/scriptural/man-made stipulates that a man must solely finance a wedding be it Traditional or White? Chief, come out and come out plain. She must take responsibility.

Some women confuses privileges with rights, they are not the same. A wedding happens between two people and by implication, two families. The two families have a role to play in financing the wedding. Why should it be one-sided? Even if I have the money to finance a wedding I wouldn't do it solely, the bride's family must participate no matter how small, there must be the sense of responsibility.

When myself and my wife decided to settledown, I put the facts on the table; that my both parents are retirees, her father was late and her mum is also a retiree and so it's going to be 'our wedding'. So she got the message, whatever budget/model she wants us to adopt is good but she must have it at the back of her mind that we are both financing the wedding. This by implication expressly took away all unnecessary 'my wedding day wants/fantasies' and we went for only our needs. By the grace of God we had a relatively small but classy wedding of not more than 200-250 guests. Traditional, Registry and Reception on the same day... and it's been happily ever after for us.

This man, from his write up already spent a fortune on the Traditional wedding. Why then is the lady angry this time. When will she ever take responsibility for her marriage and yet-to-be-born family if she can't finance her own wedding. She's a working class with a relatively good pay, so what reasonable excuse will be her reason for getting angry?

Chief, please ignore, when she's done with her anger, she will come around. You gave too much and she chose not to appreciate your efforts on the Traditional wedding. Whenever she's ready you can start planning for the White wedding. You may choose to renegotiate the percentage on the condition that you are 'capable' not because she got angry at you bringing it up initially.

Finally, my two cents, give a lady an inch, she will go a mile. You have not seen the last of a woman trying to be evasive of her responsibilities to your Union and to your future family even when the means are there, just because you are 'the man' who must do everything while she sits back and enjoy the ride as the 'madam of the house' without contributing anything or too little to the family finance. Beware, now is the time to correct the anomaly.

Good luck in your marriage.

Education / Re: Amotekun Is Cheetah Not Leopard by tmanuelle(m): 11:11pm On Jan 18, 2020
Venerable612:


This is wrong.

First off the name Amotekun has nothing to do physical semblance as such.

It literally translates - “one who knows as Ekun”.

Again, you are wrong that Yoruba doesn’t have a transalation for Tiger - because our fathers didn’t have an encounter with them.

In fact Tiger has two Yoruba names. It could be called OGIDAN or EKUN. That’s why they say this provide - “Ogidan o ni se Barber, ki aja de be lo ge irun”.

And “KAKA KI KINIUN SAKAPO EKUN, OLODE A MAA RODE.“ Mind you Lion in Yoruba is Kiniun. And no one will ever compare a Lion with a Leopard. No animal can stand the Lion grit for grit amongst the Cat Family other than the Tiger; hence, the comparison.

Also, when Yorubas jokingly refer to someone as Ekun - it’s to represent that the person is a Strong man.

Thus,

Lion - Kiniun
Tiger - Ogidan and Ekun
Leopard - Amotekun
Cheetah - Owawa.

Hope this helps.

GrabHisBalls:
You need to rephrase the emboldened to 'whenever you guys have disagreements which subsequent leads to a quarrel'.

Firstly, your marriage has lasted a decade so you should know your husband more than anyone. If you really need a solution, then you should look inward to see if there are things you do or say to him that he finds disrespecting. There lies one of your solutions.

Secondly, you're obviously bitter your husband didn't call your family when you lost your dad. Have you found out from him why he didn't? Did your family offend him in any way? And even if he was offended, nothing justifies not sharing his condolence at that time. Regardless, you have to forgive him in order to have a peaceful marriage since he's your husband.

Lastly, you don't have to be scared if you've been in your best behavior or get angry when it's demanded. Your kids are actually seeing everything and know quite a lot if you're thinking they don't. When your husband is in his best mood, you should have a talk with him to resolve these underlying issues before they'll escalate to something irreconcilable.

Exactly my mind. #Respect

I have noticed one trend with so called males here, they usually type @emboldened when it is a female stating her issues, but when it's a male, their functioning brain goes on hibernation, SMH!!

If you want to hear the other side of the story, kindly get in touch with the horseband, and bring him here to say his version, in the meantime, this is all we have, if you are not satisfied with her version, don't even try to comment, and the next time you see a female thread stating her sad family issues, kindly jump and pass.

Are you married? Or are you simply one of those ladies out there who deliberately ignore the objectiveness of a criticism so long it doesn't stroke their big ego? You don't have to be defensive.

The woman have said her side of the story, no one is judging her since no one have heard from the husband. It's only normal and logical to explore her story for POSSIBLE things that may be responsible for the family issue and proffer POSSIBLE solution(s). And I think that was the reason why she came here in the first place.

@OP, God is your strength, it's not healthy to bring in kids into issues like this, any sane mind will not do it for their sake. There are underlying issues which resulted into your husband making such threats, I may be wrong, these are just manifestation of some unresolved issues between you two that have lingered for too long.

You need to look inwards, humble yourself, respect him more and talk things through with him. Your husband is your husband o, you should know him better than the rest of us. God will uphold your family IJN. 10 years nor be here o.

Family / Re: How Can I Stop Loving This Other Man. by tmanuelle(m): 2:49pm On Dec 12, 2019
Olannajewel:
Please pardon my very long post. I also had to open another account so as to post this.
I am in my mid 20s been married for 5years with two kids.
Have been in a long distance marriage since I got married due to the fact that I have been running a degree programme which will come to an end by next year.
So,I practically see my husband when we're on holidays or during strike. But we talk every time, I'm in the east schooling and he's in the south. My husband provides more than the basic needs,he's a great husband and a good father.
I know I sound selfish, but he doesn't satisfy my emotional needs,and he agrees to it.. whenever we call it's just about the kids and my school, we don't talk personal stuffs, he's not passionate, he finds it difficult saying "I love you " unlike before. He doesn't indulge me when I say it also... when I try to sex chat with him, he shifts it away. Whenever we're on holidays and am home, he doesn't also give me time, his work is not flexible but the little opportunity he gets he would rather go out.
No woman calls him in my present, but there's been incidents that has prompted me doubt his fidelity. After I gave birth in March,I went back to school because the strike was called of.i became depressed, I will talk with my husband yet I felt he was emotionally distance from me, sometimes during argument he would flay up and rain abuses on me... during love making with my husband, he cant even keep an eye contact or reply the "I love you " I say to him during sex. Ps:my husband is in his mid 30s.
He doesn't notice any effort I make as a young wife to keep the spark in our marriage. In July,guy chat me up from a group on telegram.. I haven't seen this guy, but I would have seen him if he's close.we have been talking every day for 5months,chatting, sexchating, video calls,he tells me everything a woman wants to hear. He doesn't know am married. I'm in too deep, how do I stop loving him, I love my husband too,but he's not making any effort towards romance in our marriage.. please I need advice, insult, anything that can get me back on track. I know am cheating emotionally on my husband, but talking with this other man has kept me sane amidst all the challenges I have. How do I stop this, cause recently I noticed I cant stand conversation with my husband, not that we discuss anything that makes me feel like a woman. Please help!!

Sincerely, first you were too emotionally young to be married in the first place as at the time you did, if you weren't, you could have prevented this or at least put in place a mechanism to neutralise such. Students are always in for the boyfriend-girlfriend thing, they want emotionally commited boy who will at the same time take care of their material needs at every point (all for their ego) while it lasts. But in a marriage situation, a mature spouse will create time and space to talk things through and be willing to adjust everything even when it's most inconvenient for the sake of the marriage rather than seeking solace in the arms of another. Being emotionally mature for marriage is relative as it has nothing to do with age. Some got married in their late teens and they are doing very well.

Secondly, you are the architect of these whole thing, from your write up you got married just immediately after you got an admission if you have been married for five years and you will soon graduate provided it's a 4-year programme. You were too far away from your husband and it's not in anyway healthy for your young marriage. An unguided or undisciplined husband is most likely to deviate or lose it in a situation like this especially at that stage of the marriage. You exposed him to whatever vices that got him emotionally detached from you by being away most of the time and ofcourse, someone will always fill the gap...that's the bitter truth. He is hurting, and since he can't voice it out or vent his anger, he will do it quietly...I just hope he doesn't have another family already unknown to you.

Solution is: Cut ties with your boyfriend, forgive yourself, time and events will pass and your conscience will adjust too, face your husband (once again) tell him your worries, ask him to bear with you this next few months of schooling and you will fully resume your wifely duties at home and he will enjoy his God-given wife to the fullest, above all, always make yourself available at his call/beckon. Appreciate every little thing, his support for your education, the kids and every other sacrifices he has made for you in the course of your education (you think it's easy to spend time and money on a wedding/marriage and still be living like a bachelor?) rather than chasing some fantasies upandan.

Shalom

People like you are the reasons why a few people are short-changing the rest of us by not paying duties in this country because of their smuggling activities.

People like you encouraged the smuggling of our PMS across the borders to Niger and other neighboring countries at the expense of our common good. If you want to bring in anything, bring it in through the ports.

People like you are the reasons why an average petrol dealer or petrol station owner will deliberately hoard fuel in his dump (even when FG keeps shouting everyday that we have abundant supply) thereby creating artificial scarcity just to make more money.

We say no to rice importation using our ForEx when we have rice in this country. If you want to import foreign rice please be our guest, but it has to be via the ports. Just because the FG closed the borders, people like you started inflating the price of the rice (both foreign and local) we already have in circulation.
