Prof. Ropo Sekoni: Who Is Afraid of a Female INEC Chair?

Even as an acting chair of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mrs. Amina B. Zakari has gotten more than her fair share of bashing, particularly from the political party under which she was invited to serve as commissioner for over four years. From the caustic character of the opposition to the current acting chair of INEC, particularly by spokespersons for the PDP and other surrogates, it is clear that the opposition to the Kazaure woman may be a strategy to discourage President Buhari from offering Mrs. Zakari a substantive appointment. In a democracy, citizens are free to express support...

Is It Ok For Your Date To Fart In Your Presence? See The Answer She Got!

Q. Too Soon for Farts?: I’ve only been seeing this guy casually for about a month, and on our date last night he let one rip and it stunk up the whole car. He apologized, etc., and I know he is lactose-intolerant, but does this mean he doesn’t like me? His farting in front of me is very disrespectful, and if you really cared to impress a girl, you wouldn’t do this? Thoughts? A: You have so come to the wrong place for endorsement of your philosophy. I am of the school that he was showing you he was comfortable enough with you to let one rip. Sure you were trapped, but a moving vehicle with...

#VirgoSeason: Things You Should Know Before Dating a Virgo

1. We're practically perfect in every way. Ok, not strictly true. But this is our attainable life goal so any praise and encouragement in that direction will always be welcomed, thank you. 2. We like clean surroundings. So take it as a compliment that we're in a relationship with you. Hey! You're not unhygienic and disgusting! Make sure it stays that way. 3. We're analytical. Not saying we MASSIVELY over-think things but if you come shopping with us and we have to make a decision between a black-fringed tote and a beige-fringed tote, don't expect it to involve any less time and consideration than...

Jamilu Maiwada: The Begging Conundrum, Taking A Second Look

Former House of Representatives Member representing Katsina Federal Constituency, Late Badamasi Kabir Usman was approached by a beggar and asked him for help; that he and his family didn’t have anything to eat. Badamsi having been a son of an Emir, couldn’t believe that in Katsina, there would be a person who doesn’t have anything to eat. Out of curiosity, he asked one of his staff to follow that beggar to his house and confirm the narration. To their amazement they did not find even a single grain in the man's house. Yes, that’s how bad poverty in Nigeria is. Former Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso and...

#LadiesOnly: Heard Of Henna Contouring? Watch This!

To refresh your memory, contouring and highlighting are techniques used to sculpt and enhance your bone structure and features. Usually the makeup — powder, liquid, or pencil products that are two shades darker than your skin tone to contour or two shades lighter to highlight — is applied in solid strokes on areas that are most flattering for your face shape. But makeup artists Sahur Saleim ?and Shahina Aslam have taken the makeup trend one step further by using the concept of henna to replace the basic solid strokes. https://instagram.com/p/56kEMYGLLm/ Credit: cosmopolitan

7 Daily Habits That Can Make You More Successful At Work

Here are seven daily habits that, if practiced regularly, can boost your success at work: 1. Focus on strengths, not weaknesses. Sometimes, in an effort to be perfect, we channel valuable time and energy into trying to get good at things that aren't part of our natural aptitude. Charlotte Crivelli, co-founder of Klick Communications, believes this is a mistake. "At my company, we instill a culture that people should work on tasks that use their core strengths," she says. "We don't believe in wasting people's time getting them to improve their weaknesses. Someone else will be strong where they are weak, and...

Want A Baby Boy? Read This

Scientists claim women hoping to give birth to boys should make sure they get a proper breakfast. Researchers from Northwestern University in Illinois, United States, say it could be down to lower levels of glucose in the blood, affecting male foetuses more than female. A study suggests that mothers who skip breakfast around the time they conceive only have 45 per cent likelihood of having a male child – compared to the usual 51 per cent It is already known that in times of disaster – such as earthquakes, floods and wars – fewer boys are born than girls. The latest study, which was reported in the...

Dele Momodu: Good bye, our dear Kabiyesi

Fellow Nigerians, let me confess that my trip to the ancient city of Ife last Thursday was a most harrowing experience. As a matter of fact, the drive itself was very smooth devoid of the usual hurly-burly on that notorious Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. We set forth on our journey around noon not knowing what to expect along the way. Road travel in Nigeria has defied common logic. You require methods to the malfeasance and madness of our dare-devil drivers. We drove all the way to Ibadan without any major drama of bottlenecks and we thanked God for journey mercies. The second leg of our journey was from Ibadan to...

The Kind Of Man You Should Marry

1. He makes you feel relaxed. You don't have to be "on" around him. You're able to just be yourself. You're comfortable crying in front of him, yelling in front him, and even having quiet moments. He's seen the good, the bad, the hungover... and he still loves you. 2. He makes you happy. He makes you smile more than you frown. When you're with him, you're really, really happy. He treats you like a queen and does everything he can to make you happy. 3. You're attracted to him. You find yourself beyond attracted to him. Sometimes you look at him and you think, "Daaaaamn." He may not be everyone's cup of...

Muhammad Sageer: Understanding Corruption Beyond Currency Units

“keeping an average Nigerian from being corrupt is like keeping a goat from eating yam” Professor Chinua Achebe” The general default of the average Nigerian is indiscipline and corruption and to tackle this menace properly we must define corruption in its larger context of making it all inclusive to accommodate the leaders and larger society in all spheres and scope There is actually nothing new to say about corruption in Nigeria, the practice of which in the Nigerian context can produce without doubt a handbook on how to raise corrupt leaders and sustain corruption. We must begin as a people to do...

#MenOnly: These Famous Marriage Proposals Are Actually The Worst Ways To Propose

1. With a flash mob This was pretty cool a couple of years ago, a guaranteed viral video hit on YouTube, but it’s kind of outdated at this point. Don’t try it with Bruno Mars’ “Marry You” either, your partner may run scared. While big points are given to those of you who put in such tremendous effort, just don’t do this — it’s way too cliche. 2. In public This includes anywhere where there are a lot of people and crowded areas. Also, on stage during a performance, at a mall, or at a restaurant. You’re just showing off, please stop. 3. On the big screen at a sporting...

5 Friends You Should Keep In Your Life

It does not necessarily mean that this friend is always at the club but it simply means that this person is the one that will always be sure to lighten your mood when you are having a hard time and always ensure that you are able to relax and enjoy life.

The Wise One This friend is the keeper of all of your secrets and all of your troubles, insecurities, and mistakes. They are non-judgmental and are able to...

Bashir Ibrahim Dabo: Governor El-Rufai and His People, The Zaria Encounter

Last week’s second town hall meeting by Governor Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai in Zaria was a roller coaster of a sort compared to the maiden one that took place at Arewa House, Kaduna in the preceding month. The latter had more friendly and polite audience while the former was a mixture of effrontery and politeness. But, both had happy endings. The host of this fame and interesting gathering was rather special, the Governor’s alma mater, Barewa College Zaria. Mallam el-Rufai, being from Zaria himself, made the event even more spectacular. To the confession of many, it was the first time any governor would...

Only REAL Adults Can Accept These 25 Truths

1. Life's tough. Get a helmet. Relationships fail, people can be jerks, you can't always get what you want, and at some point in your life, you will have to stand outside in the pouring rain without an umbrella. Accept the fact that life isn't always easy, but draw strength from the knowledge that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and the hard stuff makes you appreciate the good things even more. 2. If you want to play hard, you really do have to work hard. It's a trade-off, so deal with it. If it's any consolation, it's usually worth it. 3. If you f*ck up, it's your responsibility to fix...

Personality Types That Are Most Likely To Be Unemployed

If you're wondering why it's so difficult for you to hold down a job, you might consider taking a personality assessment. Science suggests there's one personality type that's more likely to be unemployed than others. A new report from Truity Psychometrics, a provider of online personality and career assessments, found that, overall, being a "Perceiver" significantly predicts your tendency to be jobless. ISFPs (people with a preference for Introversion, Sensing, Feeling, and Perceiving) were the most likely of all 16 personality types to report being unemployed. And INFPs, INTPs, ENTPs, and ESFPs were...
