My reaction to Mr President Buhari’s speech at the UNGA

By Muyiwa Olayinka

President Buhari

At the 72nd United Nations General assembly, Nigerian President was the 8th world leader that delivered his paper, making Nigeria an important nation in the comity of nations. The President delivered a powerful paper that ably captures threat to world peace. In his paper, he reteirated the importance of encouraging consensus building among world nations to ensure the world’s global peace. I want to react to an extract of Mr President’s speech. He said;

The most pressing threat to international peace and security today is the accelerated nuclear weapons development programme by North Korea. Since the Cuban missile crisis of 1962, we have never come so close to the threat of nuclear war as we have now.
All necessary pressure and diplomatic efforts must be brought to bear on North Korea to accept peaceful resolution of the crisis. As Hiroshima and Nagasaki painfully remind us, if we fail, the catastrophic and devastating human loss and environmental degradation cannot be imagined.

Mr. President, Nigeria proposes a strong UN delegation to urgently engage the North Korean Leader. The delegation, led by the Security Council, should include members from all the regions.  The crisis in the Korean peninsula underscores the urgency for all member states, guided by the spirit of enthroning a safer and more peaceful world, to ratify without delay the Treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons, which will be open for signature here tomorrow.

Mr reaction:

I wish our President  can practise what he preaches. Charity they say begins from home. If President Buhari had practised what he prposed at the UN, he would not have deployed soldiers to Abia.

The independent people of indigenous Biafra have been  demanding for a referendum and called for the cessation of the South eastern part of Nigeria. The Nigerian government has consistently spurned any means of speaking to the aggrieved Nigerians.

The leader of this movement Nnamdi Kanu had been incacerated for almost two years despite court granting him bail, and was released on stringent or conditional bail. Though he has violated some his bail conditions since his release, the federal government approached the court to void his bail.  Not waiting for the outcome of the court case, The President ordered military to the area, leaving death, sorrow and blood in its trail.

The whole world is appalled by this indiscretion. While we are waiting for the casualties recorded by this military excercise, Kanu had gone into hiding.

The President left his country in turmoil but displaying stateman like disposition at the world stage. If he had built consensus with this separatist movement, that is not violence, it would  have stopped the needless blood letting.

 I want to end this with this reply from an anonymous Nigerian, he said;

Hypocrisy at its finest. Hypocrisy walking on two feet. Bold and infectious. President Buhari mentioned respect for democratic  values! What a world we live in. What a world! Humans can be many things and not know it. I watched that speech and was marvelled at the nature of human beings. Everything he said in that speech made sense. Everything. What I couldn’t understand is how when it comes to his own country none of those thoughts are shown.

He mentioned a negotiation with North Korea. Sending a team of UN delegates to go discuss the issue to calm Kim il Jong. I couldn’t understand how the same person who suggested such a great idea couldn’t apply same in his home country. He also  mentioned Gaza and the possibility of a Palestine state. That was a great idea and what every rational mind will suggest but in his own country, such idea is not even negotiable. You are shot by Zombies when you do so. He also called for an eye into the Rohinga killings going on in Myanmar (he should work on his pronunciation of the name) and a call for calm. This is a man who ordered some weak men (soldiers if you like) to go shoot up peace.

The speech showed that when it comes to Nigerian matters, intellectual insufficiency is not entirely his problem. His problem is utter hypocrisy. The reasons he is proposing for peace in Myanmar and Gaza is simply because Muslims are affected. There’s no way you can spot any other reason. That’s a shame. Everything he said made sense but the vessel through which it came out is rusty.

 If you know what is good for the world why not begin from your home?

President Buhari’s Speech at the 72nd UNGA

President Buhari

HIS EXCELLENCY MUHAMMADU BUHARI,PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA

AT

THE GENERAL DEBATE OF THE 72ND SESSION OF UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY, IN NEW YORK,
ON TUESDAY, 19 SEPTEMBER 2017
Mr. President,

Fellow Heads of State and Governments

Mr. Secretary-General,

Distinguished Delegates,

Ladies and Gentlemen,
On behalf of my country, Nigeria, I congratulate you Mr. President on your election and Mr. Gutteres on his first General Assembly outing as our Secretary-General. I assure you both of my country’s solidarity and cooperation. You will indeed need the cooperation of all member States as we are meeting during extra-ordinarily troubled and dangerous times. Let me also thank former Secretary-General Mr. Ban ki Moon for his service to the United Nations and wish him peaceful retirement.
Mr. President,
The previous year has witnessed many far-reaching developments. Some of the most significant events include the Iran Nuclear Deal, the Paris Climate Change Agreement and, of grave concern, the North Korean nuclear crisis.

Mr. President,
I must also commend the UN’s role in helping to settle thousands of innocent civilians caught in the conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. In particular, we must collectively thank the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany under the commendable leadership of Chancellor Angela Merkel and the Governments of Italy, Greece and Turkey for assisting hundreds of thousands of refugees.
In an exemplary show of solidarity, the international community came together within my own region to assist the countries and communities in the Sahel and the Lake Chad regions to contain the threats posed by Al Qaida and Boko Haram.
We thank the Security Council for visiting the countries of the Lake Chad Basin to assess the security situation and humanitarian needs, and for pledging assistance to rebuild lives and livelihoods. Indeed, in Nigeria we are providing relief and humanitarian assistance to millions in camps and those afflicted by terrorism, drought, floods and other natural disasters.
In the last year, the international community came together to focus on the need for gender equality, youth empowerment, social inclusion, and the promotion of education, creativity and innovation. The frontiers of good governance, democracy including holding free and fair elections, and enthronement of the rule of law are expanding everywhere, especially in Africa.
Our faith in democracy remains firm and unshaken. Our regional organisation ECOWAS came together to uphold democratic principles in The Gambia – as we had done previously in Cote D’Ivoire.
Through our individual national efforts, state institutions are being strengthened to promote accountability, and to combat corruption and asset recovery. These can only be achieved through the international community cooperating and providing critical assistance and material support. We shall also cooperate in addressing the growing transnational crimes such as forced labour, modern day slavery, human trafficking and cybercrime.
Mr. President,

These cooperative efforts should be sustained. We must collectively devise strategies and mobilise the required responses to stop fleeing ISIS fighters from mutating and infiltrating into the Sahel and the Lake Chad Basin, where there are insufficient resources and response capacity is weak.
This will require strong UN cooperation with regional organisations, such as the African Union, in conflict prevention and management. The UN should continue to take primary leadership of the maintenance of international peace and security by providing, in a predictable and sustainable manner, adequate funding and other enablers to regional initiatives and peacekeeping operations authorized by the Security Council.
Mr. President,

New conflicts should not make us lose focus on ongoing unresolved old conflicts. For example, several UN Security Council Resolutions from 1967 on the Middle East crisis remain unimplemented. Meanwhile, the suffering of the Palestinian people and the blockade of Gaza continue.
Additionally, we are now confronted by the desperate human rights and humanitarian situations in Yemen and most tragically in the Rakhine State of Myanmar. The Myanmar crisis is very reminiscent of what happened in Bosnia in 1995 and in Rwanda in 1994.
The international community cannot remain silent and not condemn the horrendous suffering caused by what, from all indications is a state-backed programme of brutal depopulation of the Rohingya inhabited areas in Myanmar on the bases of ethnicity and religion. We fully endorse the call by the Secretary-General on the Government of Myanmar to order a halt to the ongoing ethnic cleansing and ensure the safe return of the displaced Rohingya to their homes in safety and dignity.
In all these crises, the primary victims are the people, the most vulnerable being women and children. That is why the theme of this session: Focusing on People: Striving for Peace and Decent Life for All on a Sustainable Planet” is most apposite.
While the international community grapples to resolve these conflicts, we must be mindful and focus on the widening inequalities within societies, and the gap between the rich and the poor nations. These inequalities and gaps are part of the underlining root causes of competition for resources, frustration and anger leading to spiralling instability.
The most pressing threat to international peace and security today is the accelerated nuclear weapons development programme by North Korea. Since the Cuban missile crisis of 1962, we have never come so close to the threat of nuclear war as we have now.

All necessary pressure and diplomatic efforts must be brought to bear on North Korea to accept peaceful resolution of the crisis. As Hiroshima and Nagasaki painfully remind us, if we fail, the catastrophic and devastating human loss and environmental degradation cannot be imagined.
Mr. President,

18. Nigeria proposes a strong UN delegation to urgently engage the North Korean Leader. The delegation, led by the Security Council, should include members from all the regions.
The crisis in the Korean peninsula underscores the urgency for all member states, guided by the spirit of enthroning a safer and more peaceful world, to ratify without delay the Treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons, which will be open for signature here tomorrow.
Mr. President,

I end my remarks by reiterating Nigeria’s abiding commitment to the foundational principles and goals of the United Nations. Since our admission as a member state in 1960, we have always participated in all efforts to bring about global peace, security and development.
Nigeria will continue to support the UN in all its efforts, including the attainment of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

I thank you.

Big Brother Naija’s Bisola to attend United Nations General Assembly in USA (pic)

Bisola Aiyeola

For those who hold negative perception against the just concluded Big Brother Naija may have a rethink about the production. The first runner up to the winner, Bisola Aiyeola will be joining the world leaders at the 72nd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), this week.

For those who are not conversant with UNGA, it is an assembly of world leaders converging in New York, USA. They deliberate on policy making and other issues facing the world at large. Our President, Muhammadu Buhari has already landed in USA on Monday. He will join other leaders as a discussant and will be delivering a paper.

 Bisola Aiyeola, will be busy sharing ideas with other experts on girl child education. Bisola who revealed she didn’t have the opportunity to go to the university, will be attending the 72nd session of the UN general assembly in New York to campaign for girls’ education.
The campaign aims to increase the access and quality of education for girls in Nigeria, with an emphasis on the northern part of Nigeria.
Aiyeola will be going as a ONE ambassador, a role she won while participating in the ‘Back to School’ presentation task, during the reality show. She  had called on Nigerian lawmakers to prioritize girls’ education.
Other ambassadors for the ONE campaign include Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Bonang Matheba, and Waje.
Be reminded that she had a better  presentation at the Big Brother and she won outrightly. Seraph Makka, ONE Nigeria’s director, said she was excited Bisola emerged top in the task, amongst others.
She said; “We are proud to congratulate Bisola! Her presentation was very moving as she highlighted the status of girls education,”

“ONE looks forward to working with her to take our Campaign to the United Nations General Assembly in New York this September.
“During the UN General Assembly we will ask Nigerian and other African leaders to make education work for every girl by 2030, in line with Sustainable Development Goal 4.”
Wishing her happy deliberation!

Any lady I have sex with gets pimples on her face, I need help

There are new health challenges we hear on daily basis, and it is all over the world

This is another health challenge that baffles me, a young man shared this and I want you to hear his story and help.

The issue is I met my fiancé little over a year, when we met she had a very clean smooth face every woman will pray for but after few months her face had pimples and within a short time her face became so rough. She made different consultations, tried different face cleansers but to no avail.
There was a day she said something that baffles me and got me thinking. She said “she noticed her face started getting rough when we started making love.” We laugh over it but i reminisce over what she said and i could remember the same happened to my ex. My ex, a nurse had pimples throughout our time together.
And apparently, there is actually a lady I met before i met my current girlfriend, my fiancé, she is dark and lovely with a very smooth face, we had series of sex before she later travelled. After some month when i later saw her, her face was full of pimples.
I was not actually bothered before now simply because i just gained employment when i met her and i did pre-employment medical test before i got the job and all the results from the test showed i am ok. Perhaps the tests conducted did not show any medical challenge, it keeps me worried.

Could it be that the sexual intercourse I had with them contributed to this? If yes, whats the cure and how will my fiancé be treated. Has anyone experienced or suffer from this before? Fortunately I have a smooth face, I do not exhibit rough patches or pimples

Please I need help

Nigerian Policemen handcuffs a man to a vehicle to extort money

Deputy Police Force spokesperson

Some policemen attached to the Osun State Police Command have allegedly dehumanised a bus passenger at the Erinmo Ijesa end of the Iwaraja-Efon Alaaye Road, Osun State.
PUNCH Metro learnt that the policemen, who were in a Hilux van, mounted a checkpoint on the road and extorted money from commercial bus drivers.
However, a commercial bus driver, who was stopped, reportedly refused to pay them any money and was ordered to park by the roadside.

After the driver parked, one of the passengers was said to have alighted from the bus to urinate in a bush.
Our correspondent was told that the driver, on discovering that the attention of the policemen had shifted to another vehicle, quickly drove off, abandoning the man that went to urinate.
A monarch, the Owa Tapa of Itapa Ijesha, Dr Olapade Agoro, whose university’s site was around the area, said the abandoned passenger was picked up by the policemen and handcuffed to the patrol van.
He explained that the victim was handcuffed to the van for over two hours during which he soiled himself, as his cry for mercy fell on deaf ears.
He said, “The sad and highly embarrassing incident happened on Sunday (September 10, 2017).  The commercial bus the man was travelling in was stopped by the police for the usual ‘palm greasing’. The man came down from the vehicle to urinate.
“However, the deal between the driver and the policemen failed, prompting the police to ask the driver to park properly by the roadside while they attended to another vehicle.
“While they focussed on the other vehicle, the driver used the opportunity to speed off, leaving behind the passenger who went to urinate in the bush. When the passenger came back to discover that the bus had gone, he made enquiries about its whereabouts.
“Immediately the police officers discovered that he was on the bus that sped off, they pounced on him and thereafter handcuffed one of his hands to the back of the police van. The man was left handcuffed to the vehicle between the hours of 11am  and 1pm, during which he urinated on himself and wept profusely.”
He said he was angry at the maltreatment of the victim and he challenged the policemen.
Agoro said the cops subsequently released the passenger, who later came to his palace to appreciate the intervention.
“While still crying over his ordeal, he made me to realise that he had no money as the policemen had forcefully removed the last money on him from his pocket. I had to, on compassionate ground, give him N1,000 that enabled him to find his way back to his Aramoko Ekiti place of abode,” he added.
The traditional ruler said the inscription on the patrol van showed it belonged to policemen from the Osun Police Command, adding that fear prevented a resident from taking a clear snapshot of both the victim and the patrol number.
He, however, said he would recognise the men if he saw them again.
“I have a university site around the place, so there is a bump on the road. Because of the bump, vehicles are forced to slow down and the policemen use that as an opportunity to extort money from commercial drivers. Sometimes, they shoot indiscriminately. They have been doing this for a long time, but this incident was appalling.
“The situation of things in this country is terrible; but the policemen should not have tied the man down like an animal. The man urinated on himself and they didn’t care until I challenged them,” he added.
The spokesperson for the state police command, SP Odoro Folashade, said she could not react to the incident because the case had yet to be reported to any police station.
She said, “He should go and report to the nearest police station; then I will call them and find out what happened. What reaction do you want from me when the case has not been reported? He should go and establish his case, and then we will investigate.”

10 Tips Job-seekers Must Follow If They Want To Get A Meaningful Job 

By Patrick Okunima

1. Applying directly to job postings should represent no more than 20% of what you do. Getting referred to a job is 5-10X more effective than applying directly. If you’re going to apply, only apply to jobs when you’re a perfect fit for the skills and experience listed on the job description.
2. Leverage your understanding of the recruiter’s role. Many recruiters are gatekeepers who don’t know the job and will just box-check your skills and experiences. Others are extremely talented, who want to work with the best people to craft great career moves. You must avoid the former and seek out the latter.
3. Implement a 20/20/60 job-hunting plan. A job hunting plan requires a performance-based resume, an understanding of how recruiters find candidates, and applying through the backdoor. Networking is the key to the backdoor. It must represent 60% of what you need to do.
4. Focus on the job, not the money. It’s better to be underpaid than overpaid. Getting promoted or obtaining a big compensation increase will only occur after you’ve demonstrated great performance. You need to put yourself into these situations. Ignore anyone who says otherwise.
5. Present your strengths and weaknesses via short stories. No one believes general statements. You must validate each of your strengths with a specific example of how it was used in a real job situation. In addition, you need to demonstrate how you’ve turned your weaknesses into strengths. Never say you don’t have any weaknesses! It means you’ve stopped growing.
6. Divide and conquer by asking the universal question. Very early in the interview, or phone screen, you must ask the interviewer to describe the focus of the job, some of the big challenges, and how the new person’s performance will be measured. Pick at least two from this list. Then prove each is a core strength using the SAFW response below.
7. Practice the universal answer to any question. You need to be able to prove every strength with a specific example. Form your answer using the SAFW two-minute response: Say A Few Words – Statement – Amplify – few Examples – Wrap-up.
8. Weave the 10 Best Predictors of Job Success into Your SAFW Response. I just wrote a post for interviewers on how to evaluate your answers. Make sure you have an example proving you possess at least three or four of these strengths. Then during the interview ask if these traits are important for on-the-job success. Of course they will be. Then give your example. Note: this is a slam dunk!
9. Use the phone screen to minimize the impact of a weak first impression. Even if you make a good first impression, it’s important to ask the universal question (see above) early in the phone screen. Answering it correctly will increase the likelihood you’ll be invited to an onsite interview. This will help focus the actual interview on your past performance, instead of box-checking your skills and experience, or judging you on first impressions.
10. Uncover any concerns before the end of the interview. To determine where you stand, ask the interviewer about next steps. If they’re not specific, you probably won’t be called back. In this case, ask the interviewer what’s the biggest concern he/she has about your background. Then ask how the skill, trait or factor mentioned is used on the job. To overcome the concern, you’ll need to use the SAFW two-minute response to prove you can handle the requirement.
Getting a job for some is no fun. For all, it’s hard work. But working hard on the wrong things is a waste of time. So rather than complaining, take some advice from Jim Rohn: “Things will get better for you, when you get better.” Learning the ten techniques above is a great way to start.

Magun: Zimbabwean Man’s Testicle Explodes, Dies After Sex Session With Married Woman (pic)

Two lovers under the spell of Magun

Magun is a Yoruba word of south west of Nigeria. Magun means “do not climb”. Do not climb a married woman, simply means do not make love to a married woman . Magun is a concept adopted by Africans where a married man puts protective charm on his wife that is suspected of being adulterous. It is placed on the woman so that once a man, apart from her husband  sleeps with her, the man will  react in a strange manner and dies. In some cases, the two lovers could be locked together after the love session, and may involve the intervention of the spiritualists to undo it. From the picture above, the lovers were locked together and had to be taken to the spiritualists. The purpose is to disgrace them and exposed the illicit affair.

Many do not believe the authenticity of Magun, I urge doubters to read this:

A BULAWAYO woman claims her brother died because he slept with a fenced woman.
Patience Ndlovu told B-Metro that her brother Ndodana’s testicles swelled up like a balloon before they exploded and he died in the process.
“I used to hear that men fence their women but I did not believe that it was actually possible.
My brother died complaining that he was experiencing pain on his privates and he briefly highlighted that he might have slept with a fenced woman but he did not know who exactly as he had many sexual partners. When they exploded that was the end of him,” said Patience.
However, there is one man who is said to have been calling Ndodana telling him to stay away from his wife (name supplied) as there would be fatal consequences if he continued with the affair.
According to a neighbour to the late, Ndodana had been in a relationship with the named woman and some people in the area suggested that he had fathered her two children.
It is reported that despite all these warnings Ncube continued to enjoy the forbidden fruit that was not his.
In her defence the woman said neighbours wanted to destroy her marriage because they were jealous of her beautiful home.
“Who told you this? My children are now being dragged into this issue, it’s very sad that my neighbours want to see my children fatherless. I did not have an affair with him. He was a family friend,“ she said.

A fenced woman is a married woman that have been placed under the spell of Magun.

I Caught My Wife Making Dirty Calls, I need Your Advice

A cheating lover caught in the act

Technology has made life so simple. It has helped in many ways, and so also it has been revealing secrets. Since the advent of GSM in Nigeria (Global System for Mobile), in 2001, it makes life so simple for people to communicate. I shared a story of how a wife caught his cheating husband through social media with WhatsApp. A man has caught his wife making dirty calls to a young man when he exchanged memory cards. Hear him:

“It happened that I exchanged memory card with my wife. I saw 2 call recordings between my wife and a guy. the guy was toasting her and she was laughing and telling the guy on phone that she will go and think about his proposal and give him a feedback later.

I’m confused but I have not challenged her yet. am thinking of ending the marriage but my mum died last month and no one to take care of my son.
What can I do please?

Upcoming young music star, Lil Ameer is dead (video)

The Nigeria music scene has been thrown into a mourning mood when an upcoming, budding, bubbling and full of energy youngster died recently. He’s relatively unknown in Lagos, the city of entertainment. A rising star he was, he could have been a sensation if he was not cut short in the journeys of life.

The 14 years old Kano based young rapper whose real name is Ameer Hassan popularly known as Lil Ameer died after a car accident yesterday 14th of September. He was immediately rushed to the hospital after the fatal accident but later died. Ameer Hassan started his singing career at the age of 9 with his songs topping charts on radio stations in Kano. He was born 22 may 2003. Before his untimely death, he released many songs and recently the visuals to his song BOSS which is trending on most tv stations.
He has since buried at Tarauni  mosque Street, Kano state according to Islamic injunctions.
I pray that God will give the family the fortitude to bear this painful loss

May his gentle soul rest in peace, Amen
