We will skip my apology for not writing in a while. I think I captured that in the last blog. Today you got double posts, yay! This topic is like 4 months overdue in my mind. I say this because the original thought for this came a while back. I will start with a question, what is the Nigerian obsession with having sex/making love/fucking for a long time? To be more specific, what is the obsession of Nigerian men with lasting long in bed? Did they make an announcement that if you dont *pardon my french cos of course french must be a crass language* fuck your girl for over an hour you have not achieved in life? And why do people keep coming up with new aphrodisiacs each and every day? I know this is probably not a uniquely Nigerian problem because there is a big market for herbal viagra and regular alike. The thing to note is that a lot of people who use these ehem performance enhancing medication do not suffer from erectile dysfunction. What happened to the lost and quite satisfying art of the quickie? But missy said she don’t want no one minute man! Read the rest of this entry »
Lately at work and everywhere I go here in Nigeria people are talking about how there is some sort of gospel of gayness and America has appointed itself as the prophet charged with spreading this gay agenda to the world. It is apparently an agenda that says we shall all engage in copious amounts of butt sex and be proud. Oh yeah I have also heard a version that says this somewhat heralds the end of the world. To all that I say, how does that affect the price of petrol in Nigeria?

Felt a need to reblog this. Gives a good indication of some of the problems facing the Nigerian Petroleum sector and the challenges before the new government. A must read if you ask me.
Now that the elections are over and thankfully the Nigerian Apocalypse did not happen, I am sure that everyone like me is looking at the transition and the challenges that are sure to come up in terms of governance over the next few years. Yes there is a wind of change blowing across the nation. The wind of change in my opinion is a wind of “O boy if you mess up we go vote you out o” and not any of the Messianic bullshit that APC sold us in their campaign. We have witnessed a watering down of campaign promises in recent weeks and some very old faces (and yes I m talking about age) surrounding the President-elect. I hope he does not forget that the youth were a major force in the last election. Anyway, Let us leave that matter for Matthias as we say in colloquial speak. Whether change or transformation won, what is important or at least should be important to us as Nigerians is governance and the intended dividends of democracy it should deliver. Call me crazy but I believe we should crowdsource governance.
As I write this, President Jonathan has called to congratulate President-Elect General Muhammadu Buhari on his historic win. It is the first time an incumbent president is losing in Nigeria. Prior to this elections and with the powers of procrastination I started writing a post which lay as a draft in my wordpress about how to win an election in Nigeria and the points I made were thus Read the rest of this entry »
An interesting and quite methodical forecast for the upcoming elections. I rather agree with a fair amount of the forecasting just that I see voter turnout in the Northeast to be slightly under 50%. I also see the voting pattern being slightly different in Adamawa, Edo, Imo and Rivers with PDP getting slightly more votes than forecasted in those states. I however think there will be an increased percentage of votes for APC in the North and South West in General with the voting pattern of the middle belt group left a bit in the air. If we have a free and fair election then we might have an election that can swing either way. When forecasting we might have to factor in rigging in whatever form it might exist. I think a method of rigging this election would be preventing election materials from getting to areas that aren’t a party’s stronghold. I believe both major parties have the machinery to rig, one through the power of government and the other through the power of money and thugs. Who do I predict will win? I see a slight victory for President Jonathan but then again the Nigerian people might pleasantly surprise me and opt for something different. Not that I think Buhari is better, I think removing an incumbent will send a shiver down the spine of the political class and tell them that if you do not perform you will be booted out of office. All in All, I hope above all for a peaceful election. Either Buhari or Jonathan, whoever wins or loses should accept the result and battle if they must through the courts.
I am also personally interested in the National Assembly elections happening tomorrow. I think we will see the emergence of other parties aside the PDP and APC as decent forces within the National Assembly. Now only if some of these parties when they win the National Assembly seats and gain political power come together and form an interesting third option in the run to 2019.

Nigeria’s 2015 presidential elections are due to hold in a couple of days, barring any last minute changes to the rescheduled date, March 28. The poll was initially scheduled for February 14 but deferred due to ‘security concerns’, as stated by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). The postponement was not a welcome development to the All Progressives Congress (APC), the country’s strongest opposition political party, considering the massive momentum and traction gathered ahead of the planned February 14 date. The ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on the other hand appeared to be in sync with the decision to reschedule. Popular public opinion holds that if the elections had been held as initially planned, the APC would have come out victorious, perhaps inching towards a landslide. This impression was further alluded to by the likes of Dr. Frederick Fasehun, leader of the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC), in a…
