It's a favour to the nation that a sound mind as Obi is out to salvage the sinking ship of a nation.


Igbos are allergic to backwardness. Whatever it will take for us to be on the same pedestal with other great nations, we are in- Be it having our own nation Biafra we in, be it having a refocused Nigeria we will consider.


Our God didn't create us to be zombies but the best in all God has handed to us.

During slavery, it was illegal for Africans to read any book other than the Bible.


Stop Using Your Phone In Church! It Is Distracting To Me And Everyone. It Is Ungodly


Anyone caught reading philosophy, science, governance, history, economics or any other genre of literature, faced the death penalty.


Why was this so?


The slave masters understood that the Bible was a tool to limit the thinking of black Africans and to keep them perpetually subservient.


They knew that to keep them in servitude they had to make them accept their lot as the will of God and have them thinking about the end of days, these things will keep them in perpetual servitude.


They refused to give them anything good, but they gave them Christianity and the bible.


Over five hundred years later, the descendants of the slaves who were whipped, tortured, raped and murdered, now confess implicit confidence in the same Bible. (a book hurriedly put together by Emperor Constantine in 325 AD when he decreed Christianity - an infusion of Roman paganism, Greek and Egyptian mythology" as the new State religion and his troops would violently convert most of the world's populations to this newly formed order by force and through violence. The Bible was central to the success of the trans Atlantic slavery.


On a trip to Cape Coast in Ghana 2010, I saw first hand the role Christianity played in slavery.


Slaves were first baptized and letters (signifying their new names such as John, Peter, Isaac and other Christian names) engraved with hot metal in their backs - this was even before they learnt English.


While in chains, blood dripping from all over their bodies, they recited the Nicaean creed, not knowing the meaning.


Biblical Verses used by Slave Masters to Justify Slavery


#Ephesians 6:5

"Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ." lent divine credence to the predicament of slaves and consigned them to perpetual slavery.


#Ephesian 6:9

And masters, treat your slaves in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him.


#Colossians 3:22:

Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to win their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord.


#Colossian 4:1

Masters, provide your slaves with what is right and fair, because you know that you also have a Master in heaven.


#Titus 2:9

Teach slaves to be subject to their masters in everything, to try to please them, not to talk back to them,


1 #Peter 2:18

Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh.


Revolting against the oppressors, was a direct rejection of God - so they were made to believe.


Today, many Africans know the Bible from the beginning to the end but they know little about themselves or ideas that can improve their lives. They can feel Jesus in their spirits and they are absolutely sure that Christianity is the only true religion.


They are waiting for an apocalyptic climax to humanity where a blue eyed, blonde haired Caucasian savior would appear from the sky at the sound of a trumpet, to save them from debilitating poverty, a dysfunctional system, diseases and imbecility. 500 years later, Africans are still languishing in profuse ignorance.


The damage has been done.


In the words of the late scholar Dr. Henrik Clark;


"To control a people, you must first control what they think about themselves and how they regard their history and culture. And when your conqueror makes you ashamed of your culture and history, he needs no prison walls and chains to hold you".


Black/African child.

Both at home and diaspora,

Know Thyself.

If Peter Obi wins this election, it will send a strong message that everything is possible in Nigeria and Nigerians will be liberated from these evil men and women who have kept us in captivity for decades.


Young people, we can do this if we shun tribal and religious sentiments and vote for competence. If this country works, it works for everyone, including our children and their children. Everyone knows that Atiku and Tinubu are not coming to fix this country. Let's stop the hypocrisy for future's sakes.


How can a presidential candidate tells you the solution to insecurity in Nigeria is to recruit 50million Nigerians into the army and feed them with cassava, agbado and corn yet you are campaigning for him to win.

Are you OK?

Do you need help?

Omo this is loud, am kind of skeptical. the story is fishy, but as partially happy if it's true but a shame on Nigeria part our top shot senator. I know the story will still go far because the senators will always want to protect their own


This story if true just goes to show you how these greedy politicians think, selfish ,always about them .why did he or wife not offer their organ or look for a family member .The host of heaven will keep exposing you all that hv plunge this nation into perpetual darkness .God has so blessed this country with every natural resource to make us great out there. See now another bad name for Nigeria


This is pathetically shameful and exposes the extent the criminal Nigerian political class could go to exploit the masses to the benefit of their families. The poor boy was kidnapped from the streets of Lagos and ferried to London where his kidneys would be harvested to salvage the live of their spoilt brat drug and alcohol addict daughter! The God of the poor has arrested them, and trust the British system, they're jail bound!



Just 2 years of marriage?... U still have a long way to go...


To avoid gone too soon, kindly go to eBay and shop for battery powered adult gadgets... Present it to her as a substitute...


As she's playing with her toy, u will be busy writing business proposal, PowerPoint presentation, or any business project that will better your lives...


Anytime you wanna play, u do so at your own pace without looking at her face because that woman will never be satisfied in that department... The moment the thought of satisfying her crossed your mind, it might cost u your life... So be careful..

child spacing isn't the problem here. But the care given to the children which is lack of planning and poverty ruined. Mercy Johnson did the same and she has a healthy children.


Other well to do individuals did the same thing, planned ahead and made provision for it. No matter the spacing between children, issues like this and worst will come up if there's no plan and resource to nurture them.


I see nothing bad in having all your children within short period and couples face raising them together provided it's well planned and resource are available. One man's food is another's poison.

Of the many gimmicks of winning an election, this administration has successfully employed the gimmick of impoverishing its citizens just to score another goal of infiltrating voters with cash through the well-known method of vote buying.

 

I'm not expecting something different in 2023, even with the wide clamour to get our PVC.

 The bitter truth is that poverty is in the land.

Gas, diesel, fuel, foodstuffs, all household commodities have gone up.

 

Even getting a bank loan for manufacturers comes with a higher interest rate.

 

So if living for an average citizen was subjected to living below the minimum standard, now it's been relegated to a miserable state.

 

So it's a game of highest bidder on the part of our politicians, while the average voter is perplexed about whether to vote for this, that, or a choice candidate. Nevertheless, the voters' choice candidate may be confused as a loss in the present miserable state.

It's always advisable that when dating a lady never spend a dime on her or spend what you cannot afford to loose so that in case of eventualities like cheating you simple just parts ways without having any issues with her ................. But people won't listen ......you should only spend on your wife and not girlfriends.......

Baba you need to quit the relationship too. There is nothing else remaining except you want to keep beating around the bush. Might be difficult but no choice.


If you believe the child is yours then you can finalise agreements with her and her mum on upkeep and future (schooling etc) for the child. Afterwards stop giving her money or communicating with her and move on. Explain the situations to your own people so that they can rally round you and you can find strength in their encouragement.


If you have any valuable property with her, you can discuss also the repossession of what you feel is rightfully yours. I dont think there is any point of applying force or police to retrieve items especially if they aren't very much valuable. Otherwise I'll leave the discretion to you on what to do.


You may have wasted these years investing emotionally and financially but you are still young and can still pick yourself up. Look towards the future baba. Better times ahead and better luck in your next relationship.
