Nnamdi Kanu calls nigeria stupid, his reason might interest you.

Nnamdi Kanu in an interview with Al Jazeera says Nigeria is a stupid country - The interview was the first time he has spoken to an international media outlet since he was granted bail - Kanu insisted that the Igbo people have nothing in common with Nigeria. Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB in an interview has termed Nigeria a stupid country. Kanu who spoke to Al Jazeera in the parlour of his father's home in Umuahia insisted that the Igbo people have nothing in common with Nigeria The interview was the first time he has spoken to an international media outlet since he was granted bail on health grounds in April by Justice Binta Nyako.

According to Al Jazeera, Nnamdi Kanu waves his hand and puffs in frustration: "Nothing seems to be working in Nigeria. There is pain and hardship everywhere. What we're fighting [for] is not self-determination for the sake of it. It's because Nigeria is not functioning and can never function," he said. In a show of defiance and an apparent flout of his bail conditions, when Al Jazeera asked him if he was worried that he will land in trouble with the federal government for speaking to the media outfit, Kanu was said to have scoffed: "I don't care," he said and rolls his eyes. Lamenting his situation, Kanu said: "I can't go outside to call for a press conference. I can't go on Biafra Radio to broadcast. I can't allow large [groups of] people to basically congregate outside to see me … it's like asking me not to breathe," he says. Going further, the leader of IPOB said the Igbo identity is not reckoned with in Nigeria, hence the reason for his agitation.

"I'm not allowed to contest for the presidency of Nigeria because I'm Igbo. I'm not allowed to aspire to become the inspector general of police because I'm Igbo. I'm not allowed to become chief of army staff because I'm Igbo. What sort of stupid country is that?" Kanu asks. "Why would any idiot want me to be in that sort of country? " NAIJ.com recalls that in one of his broadcast on Radio Biafra, a London-based radio station, Kanu said: "We have one thing in common, all of us that believe in Biafra, one thing we have in common, a pathological hatred for Nigeria. I cannot begin to put into words how much I hate Nigeria.

 Al Jazeera reports that "on the other side of the parlour door, dozens of people are waiting to see Kanu. A throng of young men dressed in black guard the compound. They refer to Kanu as, "our supreme leader" or "his royal highness." "Kanu is my saviour," says Sopuru Amah, a senior student at one of Nigeria's oldest universities, the University of Nigeria in the southeastern city of Nsukka. "Just like Jesus was sent to save the world, Kanu was sent by God himself to save the Igbo people." Meanwhile, the Tuesday, May 30, sit-home exercise as proposed by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), kicked off in the southeast. Photos making the rounds all over social media show that many people within the region have complied with the order to stay home. Very few people have been seen on the streets and businesses have been locked down for the day. But as the sit-at-home order continues with the shut-down of some states in the south-east, a group from the region has warned Nnamdi Kanu against alleged continued flouting of the bail conditions granted him. Governors from the South east also maintained that there is no secession plan in the agenda of the Igbos.

Well I feel Nnamdi Kanu’s pain quoting ”im not allowed to contest for presidency of Nigeria because am igbo…. etc”

yemi osinbajo's new appointment and you.

I came across this news on one of naijas top blogs, and it caught me. I had a flash back to a question a young man once asked my dad, “why do the rich get richer and the poor, poorer” 

- Yemi Osinbajo, Nigeria's acting president has inaugurated the board of the Nigerian Industrial Policy and Competitiveness Advisory Council - Among the inaugurated members of the council is Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote and Peterside - The Council is expected to plan and supervise policies that will speed up Nigeria’s industrialization bid. Yemi Osinbajo,

 Nigeria's acting president has on May 30 inaugurated the board of the Nigerian Industrial Policy and Competitiveness Advisory Council. The 36-member Council, will be chaired by the acting president himself.

 I read further and noticed that the remaining 34 members are made up of CEOs and managing directors of productive sectors in the country.

Why were these posts not shared among the 36 homeless men in Abuja or the 36 beggars on the capital’s streets?

This should leave you thinking.

we had no choice but to deliver!!

That moment you’re getting used to the holiday and you’ve already engaged yourself with interesting activities and possibly one that pays, then you get this message that says Notice!! Notice!! Notice!! all students are expected to submit their seminar on or before 18th… your defence is on 19th then it dawns on you that today is 12th and you’ve not understood your topic talk less of starting your work, now you confirm you have less than a week to start, complete and memorize.

Was It our case or worse?

After romancing our predicament, we knew we had to start from somewhere. So we did.
After the sleepless nights and frustrating internet connections eg. Glo network… we were able to put our work together and deliver.
19th wasn’t a smiling day for men… guys were looking like it was their wedding day while girls turned envangelists in their skirt suits.
Our lecturers who specialize in making you forget the little you know, left some, wishing they entered alaba market to learn trading instead of the present stress and pressure.

But after all we came out smiling….

Even had reasons for after parties…..
trust PUH guys
