Why it's time to break up Nigeria and Igbos,Hausa's and Yoruba's go separate ways!

Image result for nigeria break up

Nigeria has been threatening to break up for so long.So everybody wants to go their own separate way? Some Igbos want to re-create the nation of Biafra while others want a Niger-Delta country; Northern youths are calling for the expulsion of all Igbos (- and Southerners) from the North and quietly the Yorubas are calling for the creation of an Oduduwa Republic.
And then what?
As Great Britain is finding out from its preliminary BREXIT talks with Europe it’s not easy to break up a union that has been around for a very long time. It’s a lot of wahala!
As anybody who has been through a divorce will know, no break-up is easy: who gets to

Why it is time to dissolve 1999 Nigeria constitution section 308

Image result for 1999 nigeria constitution section 308

The abrogation of the 1999 nigeria constitution section 308 is what we are going to look at.The recent alleged antics of the Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayoe, and others have again brought the spotlight on the infamous Section 308 of the Nigerian Constitution.
When his bank account was frozen by the EFCC due to un-explained monies in his possession, his party, The Peoples Democratic party (PDP) were quick to jump to his (Fayose) defence claiming “the freezing of Governor Fayose’s personal account was illegal and asked the EFCC to free the bank account immediately saying the action violates Section 308 of the 1999 Constitution”. In effect the EFCCs actions were unlawful, un-democratic and illegal.

3 Commercial Spacecraft Operators To Sell Tickets for $150,000 (The New Space Race)

Image result for The New Space Race: 3 Commercial Spacecraft Operators To Sell Tickets for $150,000!

Gone are the days when America and Russia used to battle it out for supremacy in space ; trying to put the first man in space, landing a man on the moon and bringing him back safely. Nowadays the two old rivals are quite happy to invest their joint knowledge and resources in the maintenance of the International Space Station.
But there’s a new space race going on, not between two superpower nations, but between privately-owned space vehicle launching companies aiming to put the first commercial private astronaut into space, kicking off the much anticipated era of space tourism.

Recently there has been an international uproar at the number of black people being shot dead by the police in America. The situation has become so bad that an organisation called ‘Black Lives Matter’ has been set up to draw awareness to the problem. Endorsed by a number of top black American celebrities the group is working hard to prevent further extra-judicial killings through peaceful protests.
Far away from the shores of America, and the attention of the world media, the same thing is happening in Nigeria too: trigger-happy policemen – mostly SARS operatives – are shooting and killing innocent people on a daily basis. In most recent months well-

How to explore your mystical third eye

Image result for mystical third eye

Your third eye is an ethereal eye in the middle of our heads which enables us to see things beyond the scope and comprehension of the ordinary person. Opening it is akin to a mystical Yoruba practice called ‘weju’ – loosely translated to mean ‘wash your eyes’ or ‘open your eyes’ – which means the beholder can see not only into the future but other things.
We currently see things in Three Dimension where things have length, breadth and depth. Opening your third eye opens up a Fourth Dimension where possibilities are unlimited and its surprising that in this dimension we share our world with ghosts, disembodied entities,

Why it's time for Nigeria to end it's religious and tribal differences.

Image result for nigerian tribes and religion

Nigeria's tribal and religious differences has done more good than harm to the country.Nigeria is a country of many nations; many different people of different tribes, customs and religions fused together by our then English overlords in 1914.
Different people of different religious denominations and tribes forcibly put together can only spell one word – trouble!
When the English put us together in 1914 it was on the basis of ‘divide & rule’. It worked in their favour as it was easier to rule a country divided against itself – and at each other’s throats – than for them to rule a united people.
But that was over a hundred years ago.
Since then we’ve managed to stay together like an old married couple – though we don’t

Ways to enhance your spirituality life

Image result for enhance your spiritualitySome say Religion is the best thing to happen to man,some say it's the worst.In presenting this I’ll use the term ‘spirituality’ rather than the word ‘religious’. Religious to me (- I might be wrong!) limits one to believing in and reverence for a God. Spirituality, however, takes it a step further broadening one’s perspectives on God, religions (- and there’s many of them) and Mans spiritual connection with the Universe.
The first step in enhancing your spirituality is to minimize distractions; a clear-thinking head devoid of any worries or commitments. Most of the time these commitments are of a worldly nature; things we’re obsessed with, mostly material things, which take up our time.

It’s been over two years since more than two hundred girls were kidnapped from the Government Secondary School in Chibok by the Boko Haram sect. To this day the fate of all of them remains unknown despite a video of some of them recently released by their kidnappers.

Examining President Buhari policies and where it has left Nigeria.Let me see if I can get this right.

The Tiger Woods arrest video where he had a sobriety test after suspicions of him (DUI)driving under the influence,was a really sad to think to see.I know all men are supposed to be equal,but they really are not are they?
Would Elvis Presley have been humiliated in the way Tiger was if the case was reversed? If he had been drunk like it was feared at first,i would have had absolutely no problem with that video being made public,but the man misjudged his drugs prescription from a recent back surgery.

Looking at the myth of Governor Ayo Fayose ’‘Stomach Infrastructure’

Image result for ayo fayose stomach infrastructure
It’s very good that the governor of Ekiti state, Governor Fayose, can take time out from his busy schedule to feed the people of his state, handing out bags of rice and other edibles to the needy as part of his ‘stomach infrastructure’ programme. We all need to eat or we will cease to exist! While his humanitarian efforts, to make sure everybody eats, is highly commendable one ought to point out to the governor that if you feed a man a fish a day you’ll end up feeding him for the rest of his life. Whereas if you teach him how to fish not only will he be able feed himself and his family but others too. Some might say this equates to food- stamps or welfare enjoyed by some in Western nations. But with the current economic climate in Nigeria today it’s an exercise that is neither sustainable nor affordable.

While this might be grotesque, disgusting and not to everybody’s taste  the Cleansing of the Corpses festival is held so that the spirit of the deceased can return to its place of origin, hence the dressing up and all that.

Or Call of Duty games simple games have been developed by individuals that have gone on to be worldwide successes such as Angry Birds. A look around the Google or iTunes stores will show how many of these individual-created games are growing in popularity.
Without a doubt to create a game you will need coding skills. These can either be learnt online, in colleges or if you’re unsure of yourself you can farm it out to the professionals.

The unanswered questions of the Patience Jonathan millions with EFCC

Image result for patience jonathan bank

The former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, wrote to the Chairman of the EFCC claiming the ownership of more than $31 million found in various Skye Bank accounts. In an affidavit sworn before  the Federal High Court in Lagos she claimed the money was for her medical expenses.
So Mama Peace claims the money was for medical expenses?  Even though the whole of Nigeria finds this difficult to believe I don’t – she really needs a lot of money for her medical condition(s).
The sum she quoted for medical expenses is understandable when you realize she needs a full-time language therapist ( trying to teach someone to say ‘are you the only one who came?’ instead of ‘na only you waka come?’ can take forever!); an anger-management specialist( since she’s known to fly off the handle frequently); a travel-sickness specialist( since she spent most of her tenure as First Lady frequently jetting between Britain, Germany, Abuja and Bayelsa); an etiquette specialist and a relationship expert(after all she’s married to ex-President Jonathan Goodluck, PhD).

Niger Delta avengers: How To Appease the Warring Militants'

It has reduced people’s life expectancy, led to the abandonment of their primary occupations as farmers and fishermen as oil pollution has destroyed both land and fishing grounds. There is widespread unemployment and general unrest. This has led to general dissatisfaction amongst the people and is partially to blame for the renewed calls for the re-establishment of the defunct Biafra republic.
Disillusioned and unemployed youths have taken to arms destroying pipelines and installations and kidnapping oil workers in a bid to get something back. These groups go by many names and the notable of all, presently, is the Niger Delta Avengers – who are

How to avoid the Nigeria poverty trap

Poverty in Nigeria is such a taboo subject for a country that has no business of having a poor citizen.Boko Haram fanatics in the North, militants blowing up oil installations in the South-East, lawless marauding Fulani herdsmen, cultists killing each other in broad daylight, murderers, fraudsters and kidnappers – what do they all have in common or what is the common denominator?
Poverty!
The World Bank describes the poverty trap as a spiralling mechanism which forces people to remain poor, forever, with no means of escape.
People caught up in the poverty trap are most likely to turn to mischief to either supplement their income or as a means to escape their predicament.

Thirty-three years on this is still true but with an added ‘but’.
Nigeria is a very difficult country to govern: if not the most difficult in the world to govern. You have three major tribes with god-knows-how-many sub-tribes. Three major languages are spoken with over four hundred dialects. There are supposedly two major religions – Christianity and Islam – and again god-knows-how-many different heathen gods that are also worshipped.

He might be a crass, rude, arrogant and bullying billionaire but he has managed to pull off one of the greatest political coups of all time; with absolutely no experience in politics, whatsoever, he managed to hoodwink the Republican party into accepting him as a Presidential candidate, took over the party, became the front runner and won the presidential elections. A great feat for the business mogul-reality TV show host.
