A MUST READ; Dear President Buhari, Take The High Road And Resign Honourably

I want to assuage the fear of many about the President Muhammadu Buhari’s current leadership panorama. I know before this month of April 2017 ends, Buhari will take the path of honour by resigning from his position as president but if he won’t we should persuade him to do so.

Though it is not synonymous with African leadership to relinquish power without external forces but President Buhari should change the narrative.

President Buhari should be grateful to his creator, the Almighty Allah for making life to smile at him twice as President of Nigeria. He cannot argue with destiny again for having 20 months twice in ruling Nigeria rather he should be thankful and throw in towel. He has done his bit and it is time to save Nigeria from autopilot that is sinking the ship with high speed.

If you are following government activities since President Buhari returned from unwarranted medical tourism, you will agree with me that governance has been out of its course. It has been pandemonium, melodrama and power horse trading. The calmness in Nigeria while President Buhari was away has disappeared suddenly and all is not well with both executive and legislature.

All these political episodes are pointing to 2019 race with an incapacitated incumbent President. To be candid, President Buhari has lost grip over his position and he cannot continue to help those selfish cabals to ruin Nigeria. In the word of Dr. Junaid, Buhari’s presidency has ended since the day he left the shore of this nation for medical tourism. All happenings since then have been on a proxy.

Dear President Buhari, if you truly love Nigerians and Nigeria, you will not listen to those sycophants and praise singers who are vowing to present you either dead or alive in 2019 race. It is better you accept fate and tell Aso rock bye bye. Let Nigerians know that your health and age are no more in tandem with your office demands. The patriotic Nigerians are ready to accept your fate and your path will remain indelible in history.

However, if you continue dancing to tunes of spoilers who are taking advantage of your health disadvantage to keep you in Aso Rock, the following might happen; they will commit more atrocities in your name that will ruin your integrity. They will run your government to stupor and desert you when eggs hit the rock. They will do what will make you to be the last president in Nigeria. Also, under your watch impunity will be on increase and embers of ethnic war will be alarming. They will turn you to paper tiger and you will remain a photographic President as they have been doing.

Therefore, if you don’t want hunger and war to finish Nigerians, please honorably resign now. It is better you take care of your health than to allow selfish cabal to denigrate your integrity. The situation facing the country does not deserve a part-time or sabbatical President. So let your retirement from public office start now so as to enjoy your old age in peace.

Wishing you a happy retirement. Ifedayo Obi

Virgin Atlantic Airways Exits Nigerian Market, Sacks All Nigerian Cabin Crew, Close Down Call Centre

According to news reports, Virgin Atlantic Airways has laid off all their Nigerian cabin crew. They were only given three weeks notice and no severance package regardless of length of service will be paid. The air-hostesses they sacked were about 20 in number. The company closed down their Nigerian call centre last year and let go of all the Nigerian staffers. The Owner, you would recall had said sometime in 2012, he was weary of doing business in Nigeria. Here is an extract from a statement Richard Branson issued in 2012 after the ill-fated footsteps he took by setting up a new airline in conjunction with the Nigerian government; “We fought daily battle against government agents who wanted to daily make fortune from us, politicians who saw the government 49% as a meal to seek for all kinds of favour…watchdogs (regulatory body) that didn’t know what to do and persistently asking for bribes at any point…Nigeria people are generally nice but the politicians are very insane…that may …

The Semen-Drinking Sambian Tribe Of Papua New Guinea!

To become a man in this primitive Sambian tribe in Papua New Guinea, boys are removed from the presence of all females at the age of seven, living with other males for ten years. The idea here is to convince everyone in the village that he can live without women.The isolation they encounter not only prevent the boys from having any sexual activities with women, but also from seducing, or being seduced by married women. During the ten years, the skin is pierced to remove any contamination brought upon by women. For the same reason, a sharp stick is inserted into the child’s nostrils until he bleeds profusely. They also regularly incur vomiting caused by consuming large amounts of sugarcane.
Older men now tell the boys that the bachelors (warriors) are going to copulate with them orally in order to make them grow. Throughout the six stages of the tribe’s rite of passage, the boy will perform fellatio (blowjob) to these warriors to, ironically, prove he is a real man. Because shoving manh…

Donald Trump Blasts President Buhari, Says His Priority Is The Full Introduction Of Islam, The Annihilation Of His Political Opponents And Absolute Extermination Of The People Of The Old Eastern Nigeria.

I Trust the US Republican presidential hopeful for being blunt! He said; ''no sensible president continuously travels round the globe while his country is in terrible hardship and economic mess.''
He continued; ''It can only happen in Nigeria where all that matters to the President is the full introduction of Islam, annihilation of his political opponents and absolute extermination of the people of the old Eastern Nigeria
Buhari, prior to his questionable victory at the polls as the President of Nigeria made lots of promises which he has obviously failed to keep and in most cases denied.
As a matter of fact, change could either be ‘positive’ OR ‘negative. To the earlier misconception of Nigerians and current state of the economy as a result of initiation of impracticable economic policies, it wouldn’t be wrong to assert that what president Muhammadu Buhari and his All Progressives Congress promised Nigerians was a NEGATIVE CHANGE.
If Nigeria is a country made up of…

Couple Show Moment Of Split: Liverpool Boss Brendan Rodgers Said To Have Left His Wife!

Since taking over as Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers has undergone an image makeover to match the glamour of one of the top jobs in football. The 41-year-old has apparently had his teeth whitened and lost a noticeable amount of weight, as well as moving from the family home into a £1.2million flat. And he is also reported to have now started seeing a 31-year-old former employee of the club who has been seen at his new property.
The manager, who grew up in Northern Ireland and previously held the top job at Watford and Reading, has adopted a new and more fashionable image in recent months. He has spent thousands of pounds on having his teeth whitened and lost weight after regularly exercising at the club's Melwood training ground. Mr Rodgers has also moved out of the house he shared with wife Susan, according to The Sun's Guy Patrick, and bought a luxury flat in an upmarket suburb of the city for £1.2million. Neighbours told The Sun he has since been visited at the home by …
