Lagosians, I Will Free You From APC's Bondage — Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan has said that he would free the people of Lagos State from the "bondage" of the All Progressives Congress (APC), which has ruled the state since the inception of the fourth republic in 1999.

He asked the people not to vote for APC during the rescheduled general elections but to cast their votes for all the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates contesting elections, so as to be free from APC's alleged 16 years of oppression in Lagos.

The President said this yesterday when a group of market women in the state paid him solidarity visit at the State House, Marina, Lagos.

Jonathan promised the market women that a PDP led administration in Lagos State would provide the enabling environment for traders to ply their trades without hindrance, unlike what they are said to be experiencing under the APC led government.

"I urge you all to vote for PDP. Our victory at the polls will free all Lagos traders from oppression. You need to be free; we will remove Lagos from bondage," he said.

He commended the women for supporting his re-election bid and urged them not to be intimidated by the opposition, saying, “I have listened to you; you have been carrying the PDP flag; you have been humiliated but you still marched on.

“Thank you for working hard for PDP. This is the final struggle and the time for us to use all our strength to achieve victory. If we struggle and win Lagos State, everybody will do his business without being harassed or intimidated,” he said.

Earlier, the leader of the visiting team, Hajia Aminat Hussein, had told the president that they had stood behind the PDP since its inception but regretted that the members suffered harassment under the APC led government in the state.

She said that in spite of the attempts by APC “to buy over many of the market women,” the women would mobilise themselves in the state and in other states to ensure victory for the president

Lagos Babe Use JUJU To Snatch Another Woman's Husband

A lady in Lagos want people to hear about the saga in her first cousin's marriage, so that the woman who had snatched her cousin’s husband would release him. This story is to help ladies learn and stay with their husbands even when he insists they must relocate. Read the messy details below:

The story you are about to read is a story of my first cousin who I feel has been unjustly treated in marriage by a man she labored with when he had nothing. It is also a story of the cruel and mindless nature of today’s ladies who would go all out to ensnare a man because of money. It is important also that today’s young men who want to avoid this kind of entrapment imbibe positive culture.

It’s about my cousin who is married to a top director with an Oil and Gas company. Many years ago, she was a beautiful, bubbly and enterprising young lady with a fantastic career in banking. She was very full of life too. She was the kind of lady you would meet and be immediately drawn to because of her eloquence and intelligence. Of course, she was a head turner too. Then, she met Samuel, a young man she figured that they could build a great future together.

A few years after their marriage, fortune smiled on Samuel through his boss. He bade bye to the clunkers and hand-me-downs. He entered a new level of prosperity that could only have been God’s doing. Consequently, he entered into a new level of philandering that could only have been remote-controlled by Lucifer.

In order to accommodate fully his new found pastime, he prevailed on his wife to resign her appointment with the bank she works with and relocate abroad with their three kids. The first few months of their relocation to London were quite blissful. Then, Samuel began to stay longer than necessary away from home and blaming his business for this. The wife would plead and cry, urging him to come home because they were missing him but Samuel never cared.

Sometimes, he was away for several weeks. While Samuel was doing very well financially, his devotion and concern for his family dwindled. As time went by, the wife had to resort to menial jobs to keep the family going. You can only be able to figure out how lowly she sank when you consider that her husband was a multimillionaire and she had to run several shifts inside London’s ruthless cold to feed and clothe her kids. It was always heartbreaking for me and other family members to see her go through so much hardship because of Samuel.

The cold nights bared their fangs on the lonely woman. But she held strong. As we would discover, Sam had been entrapped or so we heard by a young lady named (X). He reportedly bought her posh cars and a house in Lekki, Lagos. They practically live together. They travel round the world together.

Samuel ’s life was said to revolve round her and he showed it in deeds and actions. Despite several entreaties from family members and friends to Samuel to go back to his wife and kids, or at least, see to their upkeep and schooling, he turned a deaf ear to all.

We have consulted with Pastors for special prayers for Samuel to be released from her clutch, but nothing has happened. And the lady, a chain smoker, has reportedly also told people that it is only over her dead body that Samuel would ever go back to his family or not to marry her.

 We have begged all his friends to appeal to him, but Samuel is hell bent to stay with her.

Your Time Is Up, Get Ready To Go Home —Tinubu to Jonathan

The national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has advised the presidential candidate of the PDP, Goodluck Jonathan to return home as the nation has provided enough shoes for him to wear in his village in Bayelsa State.

It would be recalled that President Jonathan had during his campaign in 2011 claimed that due to his very poor background, his parents could not afford to buy him shoes as a child.

Speaking in Ibadan, Oyo State on Thursday, Tinubu urged the President to return to Otuoke since he had got enough shoes.

In his words: “Go and collect your PVCs to enable you vote PDP out. It is your possession. Don’t let poll robbers rob us again. Jonathan has ruined our economy. He came and said he did not have shoes. We have bought shoes, shirts and ties for him now. Enough is enough.

“For six years, he gave us excuses that there is no money; it is time for him to go. And again, we have somebody here whose tenure has witnessed an unprecedented development in the history of Oyo State. Ajimobi has performed very well.

“So on the day of the elections, get to the polling centres early enough, vote and record the voter card number, and wait till they count your votes. With your support, we shall send PDP packing."

He said APC government would develop sectors of the economy to help Nigerians realise their potentials.

Fayose Insists Buhari is Receiving Treatment in London

Governor Fayose has again alleged that the APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, who traveled to the United Kingdom for a supposed working visit, is in a London hospital.

According to him, Buhari is being treated at a hospital located at Cavendish Street, Cavendish Square, W2 London West End, London.

The governor said this had vindicated his earlier stand that Buhari was sick and lacked the required capacity to rule Nigeria.

Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose described the claim by the APC that Buhari would give a talk at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House, London as a “deceit taken too far.”

“This is not to mock Buhari or wish him dead. Rather, it is to expose the falsehood of the APC and desperation of its leaders, especially Senator Bola Tinubu to foist another Yar’Adua saga on Nigeria.”

The governor challenged the APC to prove him wrong.
“If the APC people are saying otherwise, let them publish the picture of Buhari boarding the plane and granting interview to aviation correspondents at the Abuja Airport."

In his reaction, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said,

“We are not ready to join issues with unserious people, but if they say General Buhari travelled for medical treatment, they should show us the photograph of Buhari on hospital bed.”

“We have received a complaint from the woman and investigations are ongoing,” Delhi police spokesman Rajan Bhagat said.

Bhagat also said police in Delhi have arrested four men on Friday in connection with the crime and the four men arrested were Indians.  Also the car allegedly used had been impounded.

Nigerian embassy officials in New Delhi are yet to say anything.

why is there so much rape in that part of the world? I don't get it!

10 Words Nigerians Use That Are Not In The Dictionary

Disvirgin, cross-carpeting, go-slow & 7 more ‘words’ you won’t find in the dictionary

Installmentally: This “word” is a favourite of many Nigerians, but, sadly, it simply does not exist. You won’t find it any reputable dictionary. The correct thing to say when “installmentally” comes to your mind is in instalments or by instalments.

Plumpy: Nigerians use “plumpy” when they want to say that someone is chubby or slightly fat. The correct expression is plump.

Disvirgin: This particular “word” is used severally on a daily basis, especially by Nigerian men when they intend saying that a woman has lost her virginity to a guy. The correct word to use, however, is deflower, because “disvirgin” is not a word.

Crosscarpeting or cross-carpeting: This is a favourite of Nigerian politicians and political analysts alike. They use it when they want to say that a politician has dumped his political party for another party, usually a rival party. The right terms to use when describing this scenario are party switching, defection and crossing the floor and not “cross-carpeting” or “crosscarpeting.”

Go-slow: The word go-slow exists, but not in the way Nigerians use it. A “go-slow,” in the peculiarly Nigerian context, is a situation in which road traffic is very sluggish due to vehicle queues. However, go-slow in the English language actually means an industrial tactic used by employees whereby they intentionally reduce activity, productivity and efficiency in order to press home some demands. When this happens, you say that work in the office, factory or organization is at a go-slow. The correct terms to use when road traffic is very sluggish due to vehicle queues are traffic jam, traffic congestion, gridlock, and (less technically) hold-up, not “go-slow.”

Cunny: “Cunny” is not found in authoritative dictionaries, but it can be found in some slang dictionaries. Over there, it is a slang used to refer to a woman’s vagina. The correct term to use is cunning (which is used to describe someone that is being deceitful or crafty) and not “cunny.”

Opportuned: There is nothing like “opportuned” anywhere in the English language, but that has not stopped its blatant use by all and sundry in Nigeria, including journalists and writers. The correct word is opportune. The word opportune is an adjective; therefore it has no past tense. An adjective has no past tense. However, some verbs can function as adjectives or adverbs in a sentence. These verbs are called participles and they do have past tenses. They are not pure adjectives. Examples of participles are fattened, amused, disgusted, mystified, overwhelmed, upset and bored. Be that as it may, opportune is a pure adjective and not a participle, therefore it has no past tense. Opportune means appropriate or well-timed.

Alright: “Alright” is a misspelling of the term all right. All right is used when you want to say that something is adequate, acceptable, agreeable or suitable. To hardcore English language linguists, “alright” is not a word. However, its usage is gaining traction and it’s increasingly becoming acceptable. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary – which is considered the gold standard among American English speakers – has recently drawn a lot of criticisms for its permissiveness when it began indexing some otherwise colloquial and street language terms, including “alright.” Most linguists disagree with the gradual acceptance of “alright” as a word by the public and even the media, while those in the minority are “alright” with it.

Wake-keeping: “Wake-keeping” exists only in the imagination of a few English speakers. As a matter of fact, there is no such thing as “wake-keeping.” The correct word is wake and not even “wake-keep.” Both “wake-keeping” and “wake-keep” are ungrammatical.

Screentouch: This bad grammatical expression gained currency in Nigeria and neighbouring West African countries with the influx of made-in-China stylus pen touchscreen not-so-smart phones in the mid 2000s. It was a novelty then; many in Nigeria had not seen it – or even thought such advanced technology was possible – before. So, they looked for a name to call it and “screentouch” came to mind, after all you just touch the screen and it starts working. In case you’ve still not figured it out yet, the correct thing to say is touchscreen and not “screentouch.”

So there you have it, 10 English language “words” Nigerians love to use that are not found in the dictionary.
