Dear Tunji Abayomi, I Have the Right To Choose Who To Support, By Bola Ahmed Tinubu

My Dear Tunji Abayomi, It is said that to err is human. By your letter to me, it seems that you seek to remind me that I am human. Of this I am constantly reminded. I know I have made my share of mistakes. But my progressive inclination remains firmly rooted. However, by your pained and inaccurate letter, you have proven that you are human too. You have been a friend and will continue to be. Thus, I can dispense with needless formality so that we can get to the crux of the issue. Your career is that of a lawyer and a activist. I appreciate all that you have done in the pursuit of a more just and...

Budget 2016 Impasse: Behind The Noise and Distractions – Theophilus Opaleye

I have followed with keen interest ongoing debates within Nigeria’s social media stratosphere regarding the 2016 budget, and the power tussle between the Executive and the National Assembly over the inclusion, or exclusion, of certain projects and appropriations. The details remain sketchy, even as the Executive remains reticent in driving home these accusations, but a major contention remains the absence of the Lagos-Calabar rail project as a line item in the budget of the Ministry of Transportation. Testimonies by those in the know, and details obtained from other credible sources on the matter point...

Meet the Couple with a 57-Year Age Gap, “Has Nothing to do with his Fortune…”

Flower Girl, Ring Bearer Walk Down Aisle Again as Bride & Groom

Briggs Fussy and Brittney Husbyn once served as ring bearer and flower girl at a Minnesota wedding -- and two decades later they would walk down the aisle a second time. This past weekend, though, the 22-year-olds weren't just presenting rings or tossing petals. They were the bride and groom. In 1995, Fussy stood in as the ring bearer while Husbyn walked as the flower girl in his godmother's wedding. "We were 3 years old, I think," Fussy said. "It was my godmother's wedding and Brittney's mom worked with her. She needed a flower girl." The pair reunited in 2007. "Brittney and I met in high school when...

If Your Guy Does These 5 Things, DON’T Marry Him!

1. He gets violent, even if he doesn't hit you.  You may think this is a no-brainer but honestly it isn’t. Most women I know who’ve been in abusive relationships have immense strength, only to shut down in the presence of her partner’s anger and violence. As a strong woman myself, I froze when a guy I’d been dating went into a rage one night, throwing things, damaging property and calling me names. I knew it was a deal breaker because even though he didn’t put his hands on me, he scared me. No healthy relationship can be built off a foundation of fear because you never know when his actions...

Seven Steps to Finding True Love

Step 1: Envision your ideal mate You’ve got to know what it is you want before you “put it out there to the universe,” so spend some time honestly evaluating your marriage, past relationships and any crushes you may have had along the way. This will help you figure out the must-have qualities in a good partner for you. “Writing those traits down helps keep you focused,” says Harrell. “State clearly what you do want (“He/She is loyal”), not what you don’t (“My partner won’t cheat”). Step 2: Tackle your own insecurities about dating and relationships If you try to meet someone great...

#MrJudgemental: Why are People so Mean?

   Saw this photo today and began wondering why Nigerian would rather waste their creativity on negative and irrelevant things. The person who showed me the picture was almost rolling on the floor laughing and I asked myself, "What in the world is funny about the picture?" All we ever do is add spice and life to rubbish and insult our own identity as Nigerians. Take for instance, I have never seen a movie made ingenuously about Shehu Shagari or Obafemi Awolowo or any of our founding fathers. But a nollywood producer can use just three days to produce a movie about the abducted Chibok girls and...

5 Ways To Tell If Someone Is Cheating On You

Ever wonder if your significant other isn't being entirely truthful? Unfortunately, there's a good chance you're right. It's perfectly normal to lie. In a study of undergrads, 60% of participants lied at least once during a 10-minute casual conversation with a stranger. But suppose that fibbing extended to important matters, like fidelity, and important people — like a significant other. Science can't tell you if your partner is sleeping around, but recent research has shown we can often detect when someone is hiding something. Here are five ways to tell if your partner may be keeping something...

#NoiseofRevolt: Sex With The Devil Without Condom – By @Obajeun

We have toyed with the devil in the past, now we are being hunted. Given the kind of leaders we have today, one may be persuaded by the weakening structures of the country to conclude that at a point in the past, which history could attest to, our supposed leaders have had sex with the devil without condom (apology to Olamide). Offspings: unending leadership crisis, ethnic and political jingoism, deluded populace and very confused people. Nigeria is enfeebled and humiliated by lack of dreamers and visionaries. Much more despairingly, for the past 50 or so years, primordial and even primitive considerations...
