We need to restructure the country, physical, structural and political restructuring. It’s only these that will open up the dormant energy in the country. “The Igbo, in particular, perform well when there is a level playing ground, as it is now our energies are bottled up they can’t perform because the country is against them.

Nigerian football legend, Kanu Nwankwo has thrown his weight behind Arsenal coach Unai Emery and his team which he believes can only get better.

Speaking to an AFTV reporter,, Kanu said: “So far, so good. We’ve played four games – won two, lost two. 

“When you look at the game against Chelsea, it was supposed to be a game that we’re not talking about negatively but it’s good that it happens early. 

“It’s only four games but the team is gelling. 

“And when you’ve got a new coach, the players are always like ‘I’ve have to do this, have to do that’.

Traditionalist blasts Christians for westernizing traditional weddings

Image
A UK based traditionalist, Uba Acho has slammed some Nigerian Christians with claims that they have westernized traditional weddings in the country. 
According to him, the act of bringing in Christian practices while setting aside traditional ones during such wedding is equivalent to westernizing our culture.


Read his post below.

What is Good for the Goose is also Good for the Gander.
If I go to a pastor and said I want to do a church wedding, but I don’t want Bible around on the day, I don’t want the name of Jesus to be mentioned on the day. Because I’m Onye ogo muo (Traditionalist), I don’t subscribe to the bible and I don’t believe in Jesus. Surely no pastor or church will tolerate that.

But when church goers and Christians wanna do Igbo traditional wedding, they come with hundreds of conditions, no palm wine or Mmai Nkwo, no tobacco, no itu mmai (Libetion) which we do in honour of our ancestors who laid the foundation of what we’ve gathered to do. No igu Ofor Ndu, which is our way o…

Reno Omokri encourages married men to cheat

Image
Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has advised married men to cheat. In one of his usual nuggets, he advised men with cheating tendencies to cheat on their job instead of their wife.

Reno Omokri shared on social media:

''Dear men,‬ ‪Cheat on your job, not on your wife. Find the perfect side hustle and ditch the side chick even if she’s perfect. Focus on where you earn, not where you yearn. Devote yourself to chasing clients and restrain yourself from chasing women other than your wife. And note that ‬a productive day doesn’t start in the morning. It starts the night before. If you wait until morning before planning your day, it wont be a productive day. Plan your day the night before, in the serene quietude of your bedroom and you will improve your productivity ##RenosNuggets.''



I struggled to kiss Tonto Dikeh on set the first time I saw her - Ghanaian actor

Ghanaian actor, James Gardiner has shared an interesting story of how he struggled to kiss Nigerian movie star, Tonto Dikeh, the first time they met on set. According to James Gardiner, the experience was scary to him because kissing the actress he admired so much was like a dream come true. He revealed this in an interview with Deloris Frimpong Manso on the Delay Show. “They told me to kiss Tonto Dikeh and I said how could I kiss her? She might get angry with me. I was so scared to kiss her. My reluctance was not because I have not kissed a woman before, but it’s one thing to kiss a woman in your own space and another on the screens. I mean, this is someone I used to watch on the TV and admire so much, so how can I kiss her just like that?” he quizzed. “I was so scared that the director had to pull me to the side and talk to me, and she (Tonto Dikeh) was even getting annoyed because I was struggling to put myself together for the act,” he said.

Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State has given reasons why the people of the state will miss him when he leaves office next year.

Okorocha listed free and qualitative education programme in the State and more than 1000 verifiable projects as some of the reasons he won’t be forgotten so fast.

In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo, the Governor said, “The free education programme in the State which some opponents of the government had tried to discredit when it was introduced has yielded obvious remarkable results.



“And aside the School enrolment in the State snowballing from 381,000 in 2011 to more than One million in 2017, the State has continued to lead in JAMB applications for the Seventh time now.

Nigerian man narrates his experience growing up as a burn survivor

Image
Below is a narration from a Nigerian man about his experience growing up as a burn survivor. He speaks on how his life changed after an accident that was sparked by a lantern while he was a kid.


I was a very handsome kid growing up with a lot of self confidence. You know; the dark and handsome, smart and brilliant kinda confidence. But at the age of 10, I experienced what changed my perception about life: I got burnt, an accident caused by a lantern at home. I was bed-ridden for a whole year and eventually got discharged of 3rd degree burns.
Everything that made sense to me changed, all I used to love made no sense anymore because I had no idea how to live in my new skin. It was a difficult period; kids saw me they’d run and cry, walking in the streets, people would stare and say sorry.



Do u know how many times I was denied taking a look at myself in the mirror? How many times I have been to surgery in different orthopedics, both in and out of the country? Couple of times I thought of c…
