18+: 25 Unmistakable Signs He’s in Love With You

Some signs of true love are subtle. Others? Well, they all but hit you over the head with obviousness. If you’re blissfully happy and searching for signs that your guy is hooked on you too, these 25 signs will make it crystal clear. 1. He actually listens when you give him a 20-minute-long play-by-play of a dramatic situation with your work frenemy. 2. He doesn’t suggest you go brush your teeth before he kisses you good morning. 3. He initiates cuddling that doesn’t lead to sex. 4. He’s introduced you to all his friends—and when you met them, they already knew where you work and that you...

President Muhammadu Buhari One Month Later: “Sai Change” Or “Sai Patience” By Omonile Olasunkanmi

President Muhammadu Buhari’s days in office so far has been everything short of the fanfare, glitz and glamour with which Nigerians welcomed his emergence as the new commander- in-chief. Buhari’s journey to Aso Rock broke many records which are not unknown to majority of the Nigerian populace. Worth mentioning amongst them are; first opposition candidate to gain more popularity and acceptance than the incumbent, he was the man that led an opposition party from a simple minority, confined to a geo-political zone to a nationally acclaimed majority, he was also the first to be on the receiving end of a...

Tolu Ogunlesi: Half-time, and a quick win mentality

The postponement of the general elections from February to March and April ensured that the entire country was going to spend the whole of the first quarter of the year playing high-tension politics. Add the fact of a formal handover scheduled for the end of May, and a June widely seen as a settling-in period for a new government, and we can easily conclude that we essentially donated the entire first half of the year to the process of transitioning from one government to another. Considering the extent to which politics and the government constitute the central nervous system of the Nigerian economy, it’s...

8 Things Every Person Should Do Before 8 A.M.

1. Get A Healthy 7+ Hours of Sleep Let’s face it?—?Sleep is just as important as eating and drinking water. Despite this, millions of people do not sleep enough and experience insane problems as a result. The National Sleep Foundation (NSF) conducted surveys revealing that at least 40 million Americans suffer from over 70 different sleep disorders and 60 percent of adults, and 69 percent of children, experience one or more sleep problems a few nights or more during a week. In addition, more than 40 percent of adults experience daytime sleepiness severe enough to interfere with their daily activities at...

Of Government Spokesmen, Media Aides and Public Analysis – Gimba Kakanda

I was part of a discourse instigated by a satire on President Muhammadu Buhari's recent blunders and seeming indecisions these past days. The author, Malam Jaafar Jaafar, a former media aide to Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, employed as a subject of his commentary the President's mispronouncing of German Chancellor's name as Michelle instead of Merkel, misattribution of the designation "President" instead of "Chancellor" to her, and then reference to her territory as "West Germany" instead of Germany. The essence of Jaafar's method, quite simply, was to draw attention to the oversights of presidential aides...

Russia Has Better Things To Do Than Start WW3- Bryan MacDonald

Vladimir Putin said this weekend that “Russia would attack NATO only in a mad person’s dream.” Unfortunately, there are a lot of mad people working in western politics and media. If the G7 were based on GDP, adjusted for purchasing power, it would be comprised of the USA, China, India, Japan, Russia, Germany and Brazil. Such a lineup would have remarkable clout. Members would boast 53% of the globe’s entire GDP and the planet’s 3 genuine military superpowers would be represented. https://twitter.com/RichardWellings/status/607542464967155712 The problem for Washington is that this putative...

Dear Gov. Olusegun Mimiko, You Are Not Working For Ondo People! By Orukotan Ayomikun Samuel

Many of South-Western Nigeria’s political figures today only wear Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s (COA’s) trademark cap but lack a great fraction of his mental strength and administrative acumen. Some even wear his eye-glasses as a pretentious similitude of Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s eagle-likened vision that distinguished him among folks during and after his time of life but guess what, these political opportunists lack foresight. One thing is certain- COA influenced his immediate society. Like father, like son they say but there is a huge difference in this figure of speech. I begin to wonder reasons for the...

Who Will Checkmate APC ? By Amir Abdulazeez

The All Progressives’ Congress (APC) is now Nigeria’s official ‘ruling’, sorry ‘governing’ party; recall, Buhari said they were going to govern not rule. Despite now being the party in power at the centre and in control of a little less than two-third of the states of the federation, APC is arguably still not the dominant party in the country, especially when we compare its current status with what PDP was in 2003 and 2007. Some of the reasons why APC may not be considered as dominant as PDP was,  include ; it is not in absolute control of the National Assembly where it slightly lacks the...

Between Gwandu, NCC And The Nigerian Project By Habib Gajam

The Telecommunications Industry is one of the core pillars of economic growth and development in the 21st century. Apart from generating multi-million dollars in government revenues, this industry also serves as the nerve centre for development across all sectors of the economy. Small and medium-sized businesses thrive better, manufacturing, banking, and even government transactions have been made easier with information and communication technology (ICT). It is therefore safe to conclude that the importance of this industry cannot be overemphasized. In Nigeria, the Telecom sector has witnessed...

Nigeria: Taking Advantages of Software Development Economic Dynamics By Aare Ago

“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe”. “We need to do more at this stage in order to move forward; and no stone should be left unturned”. Those were the words offered by former president Olusegun Obasanjo in his inaugural speech for the Nigerian Software Development Initiative (NSDI) in 2005. This statement, obviously, insinuated unfettered supports of the Federal Government to the development of the country’s software industry with principal objectives of diversifying the economy from its overreliance on crude oil proceeds and ensuring...

President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan's administration comes to an end in a few days time.It has been a topsy-turvy ride for the gentleman from Otuoke,whom providence helped rise from the position of a Deputy governor,to that of the President of this great country.For Jonathan,it has been a very eventful sixteen years.What has remained a constant in his life over the past sixteen years is history's penchant for somehow attaching itself to the man.Today,interesting parts of Nigeria's history cannot be recounted without his name mentioned especially that famous phone call to General Buhari to concede defeat in the...

Of Silly Trekkers And Misplaced Priorities- Ololade Ajekigbe

If you are oblivious of the latest reality show going on in Nigeria, then you must have been hibernating under a rock or something. What started as the "ambition" of a young man to according to him "fulfill a promise" he made two years ago to trek from Lagos to Abuja to celebrate in solidarity with General Muhammadu Buhari should he emerge winner of the 2015 presidential elections in Nigeria has quickly escalated into a competition of sorts resulting in not less than eight other young Nigerians trekking from one part of the country to the other in order to show support for their political candidate.

Open Letter To Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, By Habeeb Whyte

Dear President – Elect, I remain Habeeb Whyte and I am still obliged with the responsibility that life placed on me to suggest a path deserving a collective action from Nigerian youths towards the faith of our father’s land and at this present time that we have just decided part of our future. You would agree with me that your success and that of All Progressive Congress in the last election can be said without mincing words to be the success of Nigerian youths. As key players in the youth movement, some of us were involved in the struggle before the formation of APC as a party and even made our inputs...

Social Media And The Polarization Of The Affluent – Abhay Desai

“The result of our labour", the scoundrels said. "We have worked night and day but, at last, the most beautiful fabric in the world is ready for you. Look at the colors and feel how fine it is." Of course the Emperor did not see any colors and could not feel any cloth between his fingers. He panicked and felt like fainting. But luckily the throne was right behind him and he sat down. But when he realized that no one could know that he did not see the fabric, he felt better. Nobody could find out he was stupid and incompetent. And the Emperor didn't know that everybody else around him thought and did the...

Chukwumerije: shall we continue venerating the dead without their deed

The Afenifere Renewal Group would like to commiserate with the family and associates of the late Senator Uche Chukwumerije. In its reaction to the death of Senator Uche Chukwumerije, the group in a statement signed by Kunle Famoriyo, its publicity secretary, acknowledged the late senator as a good family man but also as a usurper.  The late Senator did well for himself, family, friends, and the Taekwondo sport community. It appears he also did well for his Abia State and for the Igbo ethnic nation as a senator and we would like to commiserate with them for their loss. However, a cursory look at the...

#PAUSIBILITY: We Are Africans! by Adebayo Coker

  My dear people, I must start by congratulating us for the consolidation of democracy. Two weeks ago we had both Gubernatorial and House of Assembly elections. Even though there were pockets of skirmishes, I can submit that we are all determined to make this system work and with time the imbroglio will be dealt with, then our nation will be one of the exemplified democracies in the world. I could not write my column last week because I was busy coordinating my son’s first birthday. As I moved around town during that period, a thought kept coming to mind: If posters could cry, we all would be...
