Wole Soyinka: And now, the ecumenical city of Jos?!

Wole-Soyinka2

Today, so soon after Nyanya, Jos has turned into yet another national abattoir, the current fate of so many of our towns, villages and other once thriving habitations across northern parts of the nation. 

This was how I knew Jos from childhood – the ecumenical heart of Nigerian humanity. It was this distinct, all-embracing character that family and friends rhapsodized about the city and her laid-back disposition, as they returned home for periodic family reunions, trading sorties, and seasonal festivals. There were no strangers in Jos: that was the summative, unstated ethos. It was in this condition that I reconnected with Jos at the end of my studies abroad half a century ago – traders, teachers and students, tailors, carpenters, petty contractors, long distance drivers, railway workers, photographers and of course, expatriates. This was the city of open arms that I criss-crossed as I toured the nation (and West Africa) in pursuit of indigenous theatre traditions. Only Kaduna came a close second. Jos was the pre-eminent choice for extended school excursions and casual retreats, its lush hills, its temperate weather, shimmering plateau, but above all, its benign, neighbourhood humanity drew all towards her like a mystic magnet.
Today, so soon after Nyanya, Jos has turned into yet another national abattoir, the current fate of so many of

OMG! Angry KFC worker put pubic hair in customer’s food, posts it on Facebook

 

A customer at a KFC restaurant in the United Kingdom might have gotten more than she bargained for after a worker allegedly dropped pubic hair into a meal.
A group of girls were said to have told a worker at the fast food place that she needed to smile more and it was their order that was reportedly laced with the hair.
The allegation was made via Facebook on ‘Spotted Cardiff’, a page set up to enable users drop anonymous notes.
Daily Mail reports:
The message suggests the co-worker carried out the alleged act after taking umbrage with the way the drive-thru customers had spoken to their colleague during the ‘altercation’.
The post said: ‘Karmas a **** girls, hope you enjoyed your food I made for you after overhearing the way you spoke to my girl on the head set be picking pubes out your teeth for a week’ (sic).
It was then signed off with ‘mwah’, a word used to express the sound of a kiss.

On Tuesday, the CEO of American denim pioneer Levi Strauss publicly admitted that the jeans he was wearing while speaking at Fortune’s ‘Brainstorm Green’ conference hadn’t been washed since he purchased them over a year ago. And people are so freaking out.

 Chip Bergh had told the audience:
“These are one of my favorite jeans—[they] are maybe a year old, and they have yet to see a washing machine. I know that sounds totally disgusting… but believe me, it can be
done! You can spot clean it, you can air dry it, and it's fine. I have yet to get a skin disease or anything else. It works."
When moderator, Andy Sewer, who obviously seemed a bit taken aback, asked Bergh the age-old question: how often should one be washing their jeans then?

Flavour on His Rise to the Top: “The Money Was Not Coming”


       Flavour-Nabania-12
 
Flavour is now a music superstar, but a few years before she shot into limelight, it wasn’t rosy.
In an interview with Hip Hop World Magazine, the “Ada Ada” crooner speaks on leaving Enugu for Lagos.
“In Enugu at that time, I was coming out big, and Enugu is a small city where everyone knows each other. So everyone knew the guy Flavour, and it was so nice and cozy, but the money was not coming. It was all about the girls because there are many universities here in Enugu so there were many babes (laughs) and wherever you went, you would see them.
And they liked me so much so I was feeling myself, feeling what I was doing. I felt that with the love I got from ladies here I could do anything – go to any club. Things were just so easy for me and I began to feel like a star, but I noticed that I wasn’t making money, and I wasn’t pushing myself. I had no competition so I forgot about my dream to push myself across borders due to the distraction I got mostly from women and then life in Enugu.
Enugu is so chill, and the people want everything easy. Even if you don’t have money to spend,

Schoolgirls’ abduction, slap on nation’s security – OPC

Gani Adams

The Oodua People’s Congress has described the continued seizure of the over 200 Nigerian girls abducted on April 14 by the Boko Haram insurgents in Chibok, Borno State, as a slap on the nation’s security.
OPC National Coordinator, Otunba Gani Adams, said the development indicated that the country was not safe for residents.
He said Nigerians in the Diaspora would not want to visit the country because of the security challenges, especially killing of innocent people and destruction of their property.
In a telephone interview with our correspondent during the week, Adams said the insecurity was a potent factor that could prevent investors from bringing their resources into the country.
He, however, condemned the recent attacks on Nigerians in Kano and Plateau states where scores were killed by the Boko Haram terrorists.
Adams urged the Federal Government to look beyond the military in the fight against the Boko Haram menace by engaging relevant stakeholders.
He hailed members of the vigilance groups that recently prevented attack on the people in some communities

Nigeria’s army is the biggest obstacle to Chibok schoolgirls rescue – Foreign experts tell The New York Times

Army

For the eager Nigerians who are hoping for good news concerning the 200 plus girls kidnapped from Chibok, Borno last month, the wait might be a long one.
This is the bleak picture painted by foreign security experts who have come into the country to help find the missing girls.
The New York Times states that many who are involved in the rescue effort say that the biggest problem militating against the successful rescue of the girls, is the Nigerian army.
According to the report:
There is a view among diplomats here and with their governments at home that the military is so poorly trained and armed, and so riddled with corruption, that not only is it incapable of finding the girls, it is also losing the broader fight against Boko Haram.
The group has effective control of much of the northeast of the country, as troops withdraw from vulnerable targets to avoid a fight and stay out of the group’s way, even as the militants slaughter civilians.
Boko Haram’s fighters have continued to strike with impunity this week, killing dozens of people in three villages in its regional stronghold, but also hitting far outside its base in

Baby Rushed To Hospital After Mom Accidentally Mixed Baby Food Formula With 'Vodka'!


Jessica Bachmaier, a 26-year-old single mom in Pennsylvania, lost custody of her 13-month old baby girl after the little girl was found to have blood alcohol content of 0.289 - three times the legal driving limit for adults.

Bachmaier said she she inadvertently mixed baby Nevaeh's formula with vodka after it was mistakenly left in a water bottle in her fridge. She mixed a sippy cup with formula with two ounces of what she thought was water. The working mother said she had asked a male friend to babysit while she worked and believes the man - who she described as a 'known alcoholic and drug addict' - had left the bottle behind. Bachmaier said she is not a drinker and does not keep alcohol in the house. Describing her daughter after drinking the mix, Bachmaier said:

Sambisa Forest: From Game Reserve To Boko Haram's Den

 
 Covering an area approximately 60,000 square kilometers in Nigeria's northeast, Sambisa is three times the size of Israel

At every mention of the Sambisa Forest being the hideout of Nigeria's Boko Haram, one can be forgiven for asking what then stops the military from simply smoking the insurgents out of their lair and end their five-year reign of terror.

But it's not that easy.

Covering an area approximately 60,000 square kilometers in Nigeria's northeastern region, Sambisa is three times the size of Israel.

Designated a game reserve by British colonialists, it extends from the northeastern states of Borno, Yobe, Bauchi and Gombe to northwestern Kano and down to Jigawa State.

Meshala Isaac, a teacher at the University of Maiduguri in Borno State, said wild animals – such as lions, leopards, elephants and hyenas – were once common in the vast forest.

We Are Not Ashamed to be Called the Church of the Rich – Bishop Oyedepo


Founder, Living Faith Church aka Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, in a new, very revealing interview with Punch talked about the numerous stories we've heard about his church and how most of them are lies plus how he reacts to them.
Excerpts:
  • Why are there so many rich people in Winners?
Because they know better than their contemporaries. If you don’t know what you have, you won’t know if you are deprived of it. The Bible is an open chequebook, it is by revelation we access what belongs to us; by faith we take delivery of it. Someone had access to our empowerment programme and she is a pepper seller, while others sell one basket a day, she sells six, seven. I learnt she had become the envy of all the pepper sellers in her area. Such person has an understanding that whatever
she does, she prospers and she knows that when she pays her tithe, she experiences open heavens. But in case people don’t know, they perish for lack of knowledge, and in case they think when you are rich you miss heaven, then they perish for lack of knowledge.

America Is The Only True Helper In Locating Abducted Girls — US Secretary Of State John Kerry

photo - America Is True Helper In Locating Over 200 Abducted Girls — US Secretary Of State
US Secretary of State John Kerry

United States Secretary of State John Kerry stated on Thursday, May 22, that the United States is the only one country that helps Nigeria to locate the abducted Chibok schoolgirls while Britain, France and Israel help on the ground.
The United States became the biggest foreign participant in fight against Boko Haram sect as about 80 military personnel were sent to neighboring Chad for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.
While Washington, D.C., has deployed surveillance drones, spy planes and about 30 civilian and military specialists to support Nigeria‘s security forces.
During a dinner at the State Department on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the US diplomatic corps, John Kerry said: "Boko Haram, Nigeria, only the United States is there offering the assistance to help find those young women.
