Alausa Pastor's Sack: Church Members Stay Away From Service

It seems members of the Chapel of Christ the Light, Alausa, Ikeja, are showing solidarity with their sacked Chaplain. A number of them stayed away from service on Sunday.

Of the 30 church members that were supposed to be part of the birthday thanksgiving service for the month of May, only nine were present.

It’s time to let Biafra people go

The current antics of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the self-proclaimed leader of the illusory Biafra Republic, brings to mind an often quoted remark by Karl Marx, who pointed out in reference to the 9th November 1799 coup d’etat by Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte in France: "History often repeats itself, the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce…”

As if to illustrate this thought-provoking adage afresh, post-colonial Nigerian history, which first produced the immense tragedy of Biafra with its horrible litany of death and widespread destruction, is now going on to provide the world with a new version of Biafra that is being preached by the colorful duo of Ralph Uwazurike (MASSOB) and Nnamdi Kanu (IPOB).

Leaders who fight corruption cannot be popular – Bola Ajibola

ON MAY 28, 20178:24 AMIN SPECIAL REPORTCOMMENTS By Bashir Adefaka Prince Bola Ajibola (SAN), a former Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), is the proprietor of Crescent University, Abeokuta (CUAB), Ogun State. In this interview, he x-rays the Buhari government in the last two years, saying  the problem with the economy is the people who are calling it bad in order to run down the country. How do you assess the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government in the last two years?
I would first and foremost like to raise a point of fact here,  anybody who is in government purposely to rid the government and the country of corruption cannot be popular.   Majority of those in government are there for the purpose of enriching their pockets.   Most of them are there to steal, to cheat, to bribe and to be bribed. Therefore, if there is anyone going into government to get rid of such a situation, he is already on an uphill task and it is bound to be difficult.

What to expect from sex with man who has big penis

Men obsess about their penis size; just as women hate to get into bed with a man who is too small below the belt. But while women hate the unsatisfactory sex that usually comes with a man of small member, they are also mortified with the possible consequences of rolling with a man who has humongous manhood. And they have every cause to be concerned because, as experts say, sex with a man who spots huge penis comes at a price — an unpleasant price, for that matter!
